from season to BOOSOn. Thosa host liked
are (iulto plain, Konio of thoin bolng abso?

always long, and tho voll now often covors
tho whole llguro.
It Is suggostod that volvot and silk flow?

tion may bo mnde at homo by clover
women, ovou If thoy have not loarnod tho
tratla Old blossoms and follngo may be
taken apart to servo as putterns for petals
and loaves, which must bo out out with
sharp solesora to avoid frnying. The velvet
must first be sMITonod by a preparation of
shellac and alcohol, which is applied to
tho back ond allowed to dry. .Stamens nud
flower middles of nil sorts can ho bought
by tho bunch, and some still wire, as well
as tho lino kind for winding, will bo re?
quired. Petals may bo curved by drawing;
thorn over a knife, and tho heated point of
tho knifo will servo to vein tho leaves.
Evening capes for young girls are com?
paratively short and afford very slight pro?
tection for bum arms and shoulders, l.tnig
capos are much safer for cold weather
wear. It Is said that tho fur linings now
mi fuKhiunahlo are nut suitable wear for
delicate parsons, as they overheat tho skin
snd render It moist, so that when the capo
is removed a chill ensues. Wadded silk or
aatin is preferable, fur heiug rusorvud for
tho trimming of the outside.
A groat deal of volvot is worn for formal
toilets; nlso brooho silks having a change
able effect In either the ground or the fig?
ures. Tho most fashlonuhle color at pros

and red and blue and green .-ire ill SO liked.

The goods most employed for ball gowns
are satin brooho, velours iiinlre, ottomans

plniii. changeable or striped In greater or
less width by satin bands. Sometimes
also thoy are sowed with small, shining
dots, which render them very brilliant.
Costumes entirely of volvot are a little
out of dato as ball gowns, oxoopt for wom?
en who do not dance, but a great deal of
velvet is employed for trimming in the
shape of largo collars, wide holts and corse
lots and corsngo draperies. Velvet applica?

skirts, outlined with heads. Besides velvet,
there are employed gauzes und moussellnos

the community authorized to act upon
their own judgment, wus in session ut

wanted to sell for tho proponed building.
"I regard this movement as deserving
of popular approval and aid," said tho
minister. "1? aims to secure a wider
intelligence und a bettor touoof morali?
ty among our people. Every one should
give according to bis means.1'
After tbo editor, tho doctor and tho
banker had talked in the sumo vein, tbo
lawyer proposed that, they get down to
business. "Deacon Close," he contin?
ued, "has a desirable lot for which ho
asks ?$2,000. It strikes mo as a pretty
Htilf price, but 1 have uo doubt that bo
will make us a donution of $500 and
muko a deed of tbo si to for $1,500."
Tboro was applause, in which tho
deacon did not participate, bat rising
reluctantly ho delivered himsolf as fol?

"Since I offered you this lot,* the
deacon went on, "there bus been a groat
improvement in times. Money is easier,
prices are better and realty gets un en?
hanced value because of tho general
prosperity. I will leu you have tho lot

The minister muttered something ho
was glad tho rest did not lieur. The
