FOR LITTLE FOLKS. ?
Mouho und lMcycle.
A wheelman of Corunna, Mich., has
to thank a mouse for the addition of 98
miles to his cyclometer record. Ho hung
his bicycle from his cellar ceiling tho'
other evening, not far from a swinging
shelf where food was kept. A mouso
bent on supper reached the shelf, and
when it had sampled the viands leap?
ed to the tiro of tho front wheel. That
immediately began to revolve, and tho
mouse naturally ran to tho highest part
of it. It couldn't stay on tho top of tho
tiro and it couldn't get enough foothold
to jump to tho wall. So it ran round
and round the revolving wheel, and tho
next morning was found, almost ex?
hausted, but still running, with P8
miles to its credit.
Animals Without Fear.
In contrast with tho animals that
show great fear of man and that dis?
trust, all unfamiliar sights and sounds
we find other's that seem not to know
what it is i;> I)'; afraid. You have prob?
ably noticed that some animals will
mako friends fearlessly tho moment
tin y meet you, jiisc as some children
are in vi r shy. because they take it for
granted that every ono is their friend.
J-'here is a difference) however, between
fearlessness and courage. Let us give
you an oxnmplo of what we mean.
in walking across a held you flush
a partridge and : lie pretends to be lame,
fluttering at your feet, doing all sho
can to attract your attention, it is not
because she feels no fear. On tho con?
trary, slit; is in an agony of terror. Her
nest is close by, her children cannot
save themselves, and she is offering you
her lifo for theirs. That is not fearless
;.ess; it is courage, and courage of the
highest kind. The bravo mother bird
that is ready to dio for her little ones
fears more for them than you can un?
True fearlessness, on tho other hand,
is perfectly ignorant, and touches our
hearts in a different way. A naturalist
Whom wu know tells a pretty story of
meeting a little mouse one day in tho
middle of a mountain lake The tiny
creature was swimming vigorously for
tho shore, but when the man in the boat
(drctched out. a friendly oar to moot
him the little mouse ran up it at ouco
and into tho palm of tho stranger's
hand, where "ho sat for some timo and
arranged his fur and warmed himself.
Ho did not," tho naturalist tells us,
"show tho slightest fear." It waa prob

What Was Left.
Two little brothers, aged respectively
4 and (>, fell in with a stray kitten,
which, suffering by the bands of some
cruel person, had of its tail scarcely half
an inch remaining.
"Poor little kitten, " said the younger
one. "Who has out off its tail? I won?
der if it will grow again?"
To which tho older gravely remark?
ed : "Of course it will. Don't you see
the root is still there?"?Philadelphia

"Vlstdj-owuii With Stock Collars?Whito
Sern? l.-.iw u Tennis Costume
Is thorv ntiy woman who llkoa to hnvo
her nook tied up light lit night? If su. for
h?r iliero uro ohnrinlngly attractive night?
gowns, bofrlllcd and Inccd nud tucked,
with high stock collars and bows of ribbon
complete. As there is sometimes a rulllo
nround the foot of these garments as well,
they look more like wrappers than night
gowns. Thoro uro women, however, who
welcome night ;is nature's sweet restorer,
who are glad to doll stilt clothing and
hampering impediments of nil sorts. To
such persons tho low necked nightgown is
a real boon. Formerly, when close neck?
bands wore tho unexceptionable rule, the
two top buttons of the nightdress were
permitted to remain unfastened to nllow of
her breathing, and tho feeling and look
werountidy. Now there are no top buttons,
or, if there are, they are so low down as to
be unworthy of consideration. Wo allow
great freedom for evening dress, so why
hesitate at permitting half this freedom
for the nightdress, which is OOluplotcly
private!1 The empire nightgown, leaving
tho usually imprisoned threat free, is a
most beneficial invention, and no woman
who has once accustomed herself to it will
ever put up with a choking collnr again
for her hours of slumber.
Tho notion of rufiles around tho foot of
tho nightgown is not altogether satisfac
tory, for they nro more or less heavy nnd
clumsy, while ut night we should be free
of all impediment, since, through ull one's
waking hours one Is compelled to carry so
great a weight of clothing. Few of us
realize how great a demand our wardrobe
makes upon our physical strength, but in
weight, constraint and compression the
demand is considerable.
Tho illustration given today shows it
lawn tennis costume of white serge. Mo?
tifs of black mohair braid adorn the skirt
on each side of the tabller from tho waist
down half Its length, forming a V shaped
decoration. The blouse bodice closes at
tho left side and is trimmed with black
mohair braid, tho right sido forming a
largo rovers bordered with a narrow plait?
ing of whito surah. The scant sleeves
tiro trimmed near tho waist with V's of
black braid. Tho sailer hat is of mixed
black and white straw trimmed with black
quills und n black band.
HINTS OF AUTUMN FASHIONS
Tale Gray and Ivory Cashmere Trimmed
With Embroidery aud Galloon.
Cashmere is to bo worn ngnin In tho
autumn, and few materials are more serv?
iceable for gehcrol wear. Already aro soon
some charming costumes of pearl nnd sil?
ver gray cashmere, with white or gray
embroideries, or with gray soutache, or
galloon enriched with spangles, gold or
steel. Very narrow velvet ribbon will nlso
ho much employed on cashmere, which, of
course, will be worn in other colors besides
gray, mauve nnd blue promising to be tho
favorites. The skirt encircled with five,
seven or nine bands of narrow velvet seems
to be n well liked model.
A certain number of costumes com
ploti ly of plaid appear every season and
lire sinnet hues very effective; but, as a
rule, they are not particularly desirable.
At present plaid trimmings aro much
used, anil plaids uro liked better in that
form than for whole toilets.
Hlne and green in combination aro still
enjoying an uudiminlshod vogue, both for
LITTLE OIItL'S GOWK,
gowns and millinery. Blue canvas ovor a
green silk lining is ofen seen, blue flowers
on a green hat, green trimmings on a
bine gown, lilue and green chnngenblo
silk in various degrees of dullness nnd
brilliancy makes some of the neatest silk
shirt waists of the season. Mauve und
blue form tho newest combination, which
will probably he in evldonco everywhere
in tho fall.
All illustration Is given of an odd nnd
pretty costume for a little pirl 8 or 10
years old. It is of white embroidered
muslin nud is mounted under n tucked
yoke of muslin, which forms a sort of bo?

small plaits at tho waist and by a wide
