A COLLEGE OUTFIT.
WHAT A GIRL WILL REQUIRE DUR?
ING HER YEAR AT SCHOOL.
Mints to Mother* Thut?Will AM Them In
the Anxious Task of tJotf luff tho Daughter
Keudy for the College Term?Au Over?
abundance of Gowns Iuadvlsable.
It is first of all important for a col?
lege girl to have a golf cape or loose
wrap of some kind, that she may
throw around her hurriedly In her nu?
merous Journeys from hall to class
room, ns the campus must usually bo
crossed in going from one building to
another. A soft hat of the Tam
O'Shanter style, simple and without
trimming, is also necessary. Two or
three woolen shirt waists or Norfolk
jackets, simply, but strongly made,
and one or two skirts to wear with
them, must be prepared for everyday
wear. One good woolen dress for
church or street wear and a more
dressy woolen gown for small after?
noon receptions or teas will be found
necessary. Two evening dresses will
be sufficient, one of light woolen mate?
rial, the other of a more dressy goods,
will give a girl the satisfaction of
knowing that she may be properly
gowned for any occasion which may
arise, and these occasions are numer?
ous, for many celebrities visit the col?
leges at times, and the students are
introduced and impromptu receptions
Do not neglect to provide a loose,
warm wrapper, and at least two warm
dressing sacks; these will prove a
great convenience when study hour
comes around, and may be slipped on
when in private study.
A mackintosh is an important ad?
junct to a well-planned wardrobe, and
rubbers and umbrella must not be
overlooked or neglected. In most
colleges a gymnasium suit is required.
This may be made of blue serge or
mixed goods of any kind. Patterns for
these suits may be purchased.
Some colleges require the students
to wear a cap and gown. These may
be made to order at the college by a
person who understands taking meas?
urements and so forth. Those meas?
urements are usually taken a week or
two after the freshman enters the col?
As to underwear it is not wise to
provide too great an amount. Six of
each article worn will prove an ample
supply, and as the laundry bills aro
usually looked upon as bugbears, it is
wise to provide at least two black
skirts for everyday wear.
Two pairs of calfskin shoes for ev?
eryday wear and a pair of dongola or
kid shoes and a pair of low shoe- or
slippers will prove ample provision
unless the girl is unusually hard on
In most colleges the rooms are fur?
nished with a single bed (the college
furnishing all bedding, sheets, tow?
els, napkins, etc.. unless otherwise
stated), bureau, washstand, two chairs
tone plain and one rocker), a study
table, lamp and bookcase. It is best
to get the measurements of bureau,
washstand and table, so that you may
provide yourself with such covers as
you may desire. Two or three tea
cloths will be found necessary to those
who wish to occasionally entertain
their girl friends at an afternoon tea in
their own rooms,
Ot course, whatever Knick-knacks
are desired must be brought from
home, but do not overdo this matter,
for If your time is to be devoted to
your work, you will not feel like tak?
ing the time necessary to keep such
things in presentable order.
The articles mentioned In this list
will prove all that are necessary for
the usual school year, with the excep?
tion of two or three cotton shirt waists
for warm fall days or early spring.
It is certainly not advisable to pro?
vide an overabundance of dresses, but

Opals Not 1'nlnrky.
Mrs. McKinley asserts her utter dis?
belief in the superstition which has
been attached to the wearing of opals.
Her husband gave her some handsome
opals and diamonds on Christmas,
1894, and she says that nothing but
good fortune has fallen to her lot
since. Mrs. McKinley has more than
:i dozen diamond pins, and a bracelet
that is truly a circlet of those precious
stones. Her watch is thickly studded
with the stones, anil when she appears
in evening dress her fingers are simply
ablaze with jewels.

Every woman these days has a fad
for some sort of a collection. The col?
lection may be pictures, old books,
oriental curios, coins, jade, ivory,
miniatures, armor, watches, fans, hu es
old silver, keys in many metals, tea?
pots, snuff-boxes, and every variety of
porcelain. One of the most alluring
collections is one of ancient Chinese
During the last two yeuia v.-.-ir.a,
Australia, has successfully dealt with ?'
the labor question by the formation of
labor colonies and village settlements
for the unemployed. The colonists re?
ceived governmental help in raising
their first crops. This came in the shape
of loans at low rates of interest, and
secured on the crops. The village set?
tlements were made near swamp lands,
tho reclaiming of which provided am?
ple labor and support for all able to
work. Thus, while aiding the settlers
to support themselves, the government
has realized large profits from the
enhanced value of the land. In this
way 2.?U0 families have been provided
for and are now permanently settled

How Infants Should (trow,
An Infant should double Its weight
in six months and treble It In a year
provided it Is a healthy child and its
nutrition Is In every was satisfactory:
If a child does not increase at tho
rate of one pound a month during tho
first year of life, and twelve ounces a
month during the second year, Its nu?
trition is not satisfactory. If a child
does not grow nearly three-quarters
of an inch every month during the
first year of life, and half an Inch a
month during the second year of life,
it is not satisfactory. Tho latter is. of
course, not of the same importance ai
the former. If children grow very much
faster it may arise from over-feeding

How many hours' sleep does a man
want? Prof. Max Midler records an
interesting statement of Alexander
von Humboldt on this subject. "As I
get old." be said. "I want more Bleep,
four hours at least. When I was
young," he continued, "two hours of
sleep were quite enough for inc."
Prof. Max Muller ventured to ex?
press doubts, apologizing for differing
from him on any physiological fact.
"It. is quite a mistake," he said,
"though it is very widely spread, that
we want seven of eight hours of sleep.
When 1 was of your ;.;:> . 1 simply lay
down on the sol;:, turned down my
lamp, and after two hours' sleep 1 was
as fresh as ever."
If Humboldt was speaking seriously
and the habits be described were con?
tinued for long periods, the experience
is certainly remarkable, for he did an
immense amount of work and lived to
be S9. It may almost be said that he
lived to be ITS. for he certainly lived
at least twice as many waking hours
as most of mankind.
