Complete List of Applications
Filed in the Land-Grab?
The Times has for several days past kept standing In its columns a lorn; list
of delinquent lam's filed on and subject to sale under an act passed at the session of
the Geueral Assembly of 1801-'95, and amended at the session of 1895-'00.
The Times now publishes for the benefit of whom it may concern a list of
property thnc has been filed on, and notices of which have either been served by
?Sergeant Tillett or are now wltb him and may be served at any moment. Many of
these notices have been served duriuir the past few days, but as the sergeant is only
required to serve the notices on the party iu whom the title stood at time of sale for
taxes, and as in many instances the owner at that time has since parted tvith bis
title, this list is published iu order to give the present owner an opportunity to
know his danger.
Every property owner should carefully examine this list:

innumerable ills and miseries. This condition
brings with it derangements or the various

TYRANNY OF " THE 400."
Oiiu .Musi Conform in Their Standard or
Rollinlll Outside Society.
"We may, if we choose, sneer at
snobbery and scoff at social strug?
gles," writes Elizabeth Disland, "but
when a man is ambitious or a woman
is proud he or she desires to secure for
himself or herself, and for their chil?
dren, the privilege of being received
as an equal everywhere. And
however much one may rail
the fact remains that wealth
and fashion do set and have always
set. the standard in social life, and
that if one wishes a free admission
everywhere one must conform one's
self to that standard. A great many
people who are not what is known as
'in society." are fond of pointing out
with triumphant rancorouspess that
'The Four Hundred' are no mote cul?
tured, intellectual, wealthy or witty
than many whom they refuse to ad?
mit to association with them in their
pleasures, and these resentful folk clo
mand in bitter amazement why any
one admils their pretensions, or strug?
gles for their recognition. The an?
swer is not far to seek. A man may
have all the intellectual attributes nnd
yet not be of sufliciont Importance lo
be admitted to the orchestra of socie?
ty, and the musicians may say. 'Wo
admit that you are good and clever,
but you can't play the violin, and you
can't become a member of our orches?
"Now the 'swell.' as he is commonly
termed. Is the man who Is an artist
in living: he may have neither moral
ideas nor Standards, nor be over?
burdened with brains, but he knovss
how lo live, as far as the ceremonies
of life go, brilliantly, gayly. Impos?
ingly, and he collects around him o:h
cis who have the same talent, and lo
gether they succeed in forming a sort
of orchestra of society, all - of them
playing In tune and in time with ono
another, and making a magnificent
harmony of ceremony and social
tercourse. And when a person com"?
along who insists v.pon joining tr.elr
orchestra they are generally extreme?
ly rude In their refusal, and cause
much enmity, or else tht.y listen
the instrument ho plays and find it
well played and so take him into their
band, and cause still morn amazement
tind envy to the others who have, been
denied admittance. And that is tho
whole answer to the conundrum Mrs.
H weeps over. Mrs. A knows how to
play the social Instrument, and Mrs.
B does not. and unless she learns to
play it she will stay forever outside of
society?that society which spells lt
Relf with n caDltal S."
WHAT TO WEAR AND HOW TO
May MHtiton'n llluta IteRitrilinR Kcnsonahlo
Tollottes-.v Stylish Suit of Serge Designed
for Small Hoya?A Dainty Unen Shirt for
lufuutc-t'iittliig Out Skirts.
Cutting Out Skirts.
Naturally, overy dressmaker thinks
that she understands this art, but am?
ateurs are not, perhaps, as well versed
and will not disdain a few hints. In
tho first place, buy a goou pattern and
measure it carefully over each hip,
front and back, and make any needed
change before cutting out the goods.
Be sure that the pattern does not dip
on either side. Keep the lining exact?
ly straight with the pattern, for if a
skirt is cut askew so will It hang.
Then baste each piece of lining to the
outside material and cut it out. This
is where the economy of some cutters
comes in; one will get a skirt out of
five yards and another takes six; so
it is worth learning to contrive tho
pieces out of as little as possible, only
never crook them. Baste with tho
bias side toward you and from the top
down, using a long needle and keep?
ing tho edges together. Stitch the
seams from the bottom up and keep
them even with the edge; fasten tho
thread at top and there will not bo
Allow an inch on the lower edge to
turn up and a quarter of an inch to
go into the belt. If you have a high
abdomen shape the belt with two darts
in front to give it a downward ten?
dency; it will make you longer waist
cd, a much-to-be-desired result with
nine figures out of ten.
Boy's Serge Suit.
This stylish little suit is designed for
small boys from two to four years. As
represented it is made of serge in a
deep shade of cardinal with wL.ie
serge for the collar and cuffs. Nar?
row braid enters Into the decoration,
and a jaunty little Tarn o'Shantcr cap
accompanies the costume. A high
necked and sleeveless under-waist
that it shaped with shoulder and un
der-arm seams and closing in tho
back, supports the kilt skirt that is
deeply hemmed and laid in plaits. Tho
blouse is simply adjusted by shoulder
and under-arm seams. A casing is
Hewed at the waist line through which
an elastic or tape is Inserted to ar?
range the fulness which droops in tho
regulation blouse fashion. To the
edge of the left-front a wide box-plait
Is applied, through which button?
holes are worked to effect a closing,
buttons being sewed to tho edge of
the left-front. The neck Is completed
by a wide sailor collar, the lower edg9
of which is shaped in rounded outline
The sleeves are one-seamed and are
gathered at the top and at the bottom,
where they are laid In plaits that are
stitched to position. Flannel, Berge,
?and all manner of light-weight cloths
are commendable for making, while
braid or machine-stitching is the ac?
To make this suit for a boy of four
years will require two yards of fifty
four-inch material, or two and one
half yards of forty-inch goods, with
three and one-eighth yards of the same
width material for collars and culls.
Unen Shirt for Infanta.
Tn spite of ribbed wool and woven
silk many infants still wear the dainty
linen shirt with its low neck and short
sleeves. The design shown is two
pieced. The tabs that fall over are
simply folded and edged with fine nar?
row lace. The only seams are those
under the arms, which should be
stitched and felled by hand. All the
frilled edges are rolled, the lace being
whipped on. The opening at tho cen?
tre-front is finished by a narrow flat
hem. The band Is of softest flannel
cut In a straight strip. The edges are
left unturned, finished by button-hol?
ing done with fine silk, and can bo
further ornamented by rows of tree
stitching also in silk.
To make the shirt it will require
five-eighths of a yard of thirty-six
inch material; the band collar calls
for one-fourth of a yard of twenty
Beven-ini h goods.
New Dress Goads.
Two facts are to be remembered:
Braid-trimmed gowns are in, and so
are plain materials for the same.
Smooth cloths are in excellent taste
trimmed with velvet or braiding or
later on with fur.
Dark red, blue, brown and gray
cloths arc tho most fashionable. Black
braiding Is better than a color, but
oiacK ana steel on gray or brown ana
gold on tnn are rich combinations.
Serge and whipcord are fashionable
fabrics In dark and medium shades
and the ever-useful black, which again
rorms a costume in every well-regula?
Cheviot and Scotch mixtures. indls
ln a frenzy of excitement and satls
tlnct checks, etc., are always with us
for general suits, and appear now
with brilliant threads of red, green,
yellow, etc., here and there.
Fancy novelties in silk and wool are
in figures and checks and vie with the
cord effects. The fancies are especial?
ly recommended for dressy costumes
combined with silk and velvet.
A Xent Little Ciitrment.
A useful little garment Is here
shown, made of cream-white cash?
mere. It is simply tltted by shoulder
and under-arm seams. The neck is
finished with a roll-over collar that
fastens at the throat with a dainty nar?
row ribbon. The sleeves uro one
seamed with the fulness at the top
collected in gathers. All the free edges
of the jacket are scolloped and em?
broidered with cream silk.
Flannel and cashmere are the ma?
terials most liked for garments of the
sort, and while the preference in color
is invariably given to white, dove, gray,
pale pink and torquolse-blue are fre?
quently employed. For seasonable
wear silk flannel may be used or lino
figured French flannel, care being
taken to select the smaller patterns.
To make this jacket will require
three-fourths of a yard of twenty
