THE COLUMBIA JIEKALD: IMMDAY. 1TJI UAKV 1S!f
My Sweetheart's Fun.
A fan of perfumed feathers,
With ( 'upiil in its down,
My sweetheart held before tier face
To hide a darken frown.
A frown yes, 'twas a iniuhty one
Fyes all Ileeked with lire;
A bosom hoa vi n lt 'mid its lace
A passion to udinire.
The cause? 'Ta Imt h trille, too
Mv sweet heart thought it not
J'.nt 'what's the d if 11 lover's tilT
Counts Imt a tiny dot.
We'd danced to Nation's waltzes,
Then stole out in the night
The sent we took was all alone
lint 'neath a Chinese light!
The air was suave with summer,
Mure suiisive bora's eyes
(uieh eyes that fall to drooping,
At first, at love's surprise.
She held the fan 'twas just in time
When, at the feather's heck,
And C upid's smile, I only kissed
My sweetheart on the neck!
Personnl benuty is soinpt hiny far
more within a woman's own control
than she supposes. In answer to a
question of how a luimui being
could reaeh a certain desirable state,
Kwami Simula mind a replied at
Oreenacre, "Think that way." Just
so. The woman who would be beau
tiful must begin and think that way.
Indulgence in unpleasant emotions
and brooding over disappointments
are ruinous to good looks, especially
as there is no disappointment worth
brooding over one hour and no loss
that is irreparable. First live a pure
and true life as you know how to.
Cultivate kindly tbougbts of all peo
ple. They are as Rood as you are.
Keep yourself always in cheerful,
happy, hopeful frame of mind. Any
Kirl can train herself to do this after
awhile. The sunny, hopeful, aspir

petual youth. Then follow Hwami's
directions and think yourself into
beauty. If you have an objection
able nose or bad complexion, don't
let your mind dwell on it. On the
contrary think of yourself always
as having a lily and rose complexion
and a classic nose. Never let your

others. Think of goodness and
At tli Stilus oT Hit Sun.
It isn't the thing you do, dear,
It's the thing you've left undone,
Which gives you a bit of heartache
At the setting of the sun.
The tender word forgotten,
The letter you did not write,
The llower you -might have sent, dear,
Are your Winning ghosts to-night.
The stone you might have lifted
Out of a lirother's way,
The hit of a heartsome counsel
You were hurried too much to say.
The loving touch of the hand, dear,
The gentle and winsome tone
That you had no time or thought for,
With troubles enough of your own.
The little act of kindness,
So easily out of mind ;
Those chances to ho angels
Which every mortal finds
They come iu'the night and silence
Kaeh chill, reproachful wraith
When hope is faint and Hugging,
And a (night has dropped on failh.
Tor life is all too short, dear,
And sorrow is all too great,
To suffer our slow compassion
That tarries until too late;
And it's not the thing you do, dear.
It's lie thing you leave undone,
Which gives yoii a bit of heartache
At the settiiiir of the sun.

Smart walking gowns belong to

Cloth gowns have never been
more elegantly and becomingly

plHCe in the stle of tailor-made
coats and skirts, says a London ex

in the autumn, all the coats have
Hat basques and sleeves of very
moderate diinesions. The skirts,
too, are much less full at the sides,
though they still have plenty of
flutes at the hack to bold them well
away from the heels when walking.
The smartest tailor gowns have
short boleros or Eton coats, as these
lend themselves much better than a
coat witli a, basoue to a really dressy

these are trimmed with the lace
frills and jabots. Home of these
boleros are elaborately braided by
hand which makes them set and
hang well, besides making them
moi-M dressy and handsome.
An elegant new gown has an ex
tremely pretty bodice, trimmed in
the handkerchief style, which is
quite new. and very popular just at
present. This dress is made of golden-brown
double cashmere, and
the sleeves are tucked from the
wrist to the shoulder. The vest is
also finely tucked, and the collar
and soft re vers are made of turquoise-blue
silk, with small brown
designs upon it. All of these are
hemmed tit the edges like a pocket
handkerchief, and they are caught
together at the throat witli hand
some cabochons, which match the
ornamental belt at the waist. The
rufile at the neck is of soft brown
silk, and the en tout cas is also of
silk, with brown and blue stripes.
These graceful handkerchief trim
mings ure much used on blouses,
and they can be carried out most
successfully with bandana hand
kerchiefs, which art exceedingly
decorative on account of their rich
coloring, and the combinations of
shades are so numerous that it is al
ways easy to find a design t' tone
well with anv colored cloth or serge.
They are also used with very good
effect to make sleeveless vests for
wearing with open coats, and in
this case the borders are cut off and
gathered into little frills to go across
the ton of the vest. Kich squares
of velveteen in Paisley colorings
make splendid winter vests, but
these, of course, are too heavy to
make into frills, and the borders are
generally used for the collar and
waistbelt, and to form revers in

The clirtpemi par excellence is of
black velvet. It is a broad-brimmed,
bell-crowned affair, heavily plumed
and picturesque, as large hats are
wont to be. The Gainsborough shape
serves as the model for all large hats,
the shapes being varied to suit indi
vidual faces. In one the crown is
lowered, In another the brim is less
ened and gently curved or bent up
high at the back or at one side. The
disposition of trimming, too, is made
with reference to the type of the
wearer's face at the back, at the
side or directly in front. Anew ca
price concentrates the trimming at
the back, flowers outside the brim,
which is usually turned up, and
feathers spread fan-wise inside to
overshadow the crown. The effect
is jau nty.
The arrangement of many long
black plumes on a black velvet
Gainsborough having a medium
wide brim is novel and effective. A
cord finishes the edge of the brim
and about it at the right side is laid
a plume with the tip falling at the
back. Upon the left side a plume is
disposed so that the tip falls just
over the onm in front. Three up
right plumes are adjusted at the left
side and at the center of the front
and back are great rosette bows of
black moire taifetta ribbon.

On a band, also at the left side,
are fixed three large emerald-and
Jvhinestone pins which give color
and animation to the pretty cap.
Another Tarn O'Shanter for even
ing wear is composed of violets. The
trimming at the left side consist of a
bunch of violet leaves and a single
American beauty rose.
A lloral toque, also for evening
wear, is made entirely of pink roses.
l h crown is pointed ami the brim
is broad at the back. At the left
side is fastened a black velvet bow
which supports a bunch of black
tips, a Rhinestone pin sparkling in
the center ol the bow.
A dainty toque that may be worn
in the carriage or at the theatre is of
white velvet embroidered in silver
At the left side are two white tips
and a black aigrette spangled with
Khinestones. A bunch of violets at
the back gives a charming note of

Mmly Vour Children.
It is an evidence of the advance of
knowledge that the wise parent to
day studies Ins child and measures
his physical development by the
physical standard that science has
established, lie keeps himself in
touch with the best knowledge.
Foods are no longer considered
merely the natural provision to meet
the demands 0.' hunger, Imt as the
remedies, the protection, the substi
tutes provided to meet the physical
needs of each body. This is one of
the results of child study, l'reco
ciousness and stupidity are regard
ed as symptoms, and no longer as
the cause of pride or sliaine. The
physical causes are studied. If the
child is stupid, liis sight, his hearing
may be at fault. If he does not
spell, an elf rt is made to discover
whether be is stone deaf. If he
grows tired quickly, common sense
seeks to discover whether his chair
and his desk are suited to his height.
If he is irritable, it becomes a ques
tion of food. If he does not develop
physically, it becomes a question of
exercise and nutrition. The temple
of the Holy Ghost is considered as
worthy of the best care and intelli
gence that time and education have

Treatment of Mele.
The secondary symptomsof meas
les and dangers attending relapse
have turned the medical nnnd to
ward research in the hope that some
means would be found by which such
effects could be avoided. Experi
ences with jacket poultices prove
their great value in cases of measles.
As soon as the disease is clearly In
dicated, the patient is put into one
of these poultices and not allowed to
become chilled until the severity of
the attack is past. In renewing the
poultices the utmost precaution must
be taken, and the old one should not
be removed until the new one is at
hand. Indeed, it is best to take the
old one off little by little and at once
apply that which is fresh.
Ihe operation should be performed
in a very warm room. In open
houses, where there is no possibility
of keeping up the proper tempera
ture, a bandage made or cotton bat
tling should be wrapped around the
body and limbs. If there is any
trouble experienced about keeping
the cotton in place, it may be secur
ed by quilting or tacking it into the
inside of a knitted shirt and under
vest. It must be applied very thick
ly, and the garments must fit snugly
and be worn continuously. The
great value of this form of treatment
seems to be keeping the patient per-
tectly warm and avoiding any ex
posure of the surface of the body to
cold. Out of H(K) children treated
with jacket poultices all but three
recovered. New York Ledger.

Tribute of Kespect by Benton Lodge
No 111, to (Jeorge T. Stone.
On Dec. 21, ISiiii, at 2::t0 o'clock, death
again visited our lodge and took from us
one of our most highly esteemed broth
ers, (. T. Stone.
W lieu wo say that Oeo. Stone is dead,
it is an acknowledged fact that a good
man has passed away.
As a Mason, be was a Mason indeed
and in truth. Next to his family and
his church, he loved masonry.
As a neighbor, he was kind and oblig
ing. 1 he day was never too tmd, uor
the night too dark for him to go to a
neighbor that tie knew to be in distress.
Let it bo sickness, or other trouble, he
was always willing and ready to do
what he could for their relief.
As a man, lie was firm, steadfast, true
and honorable, lie took his stand on
the side of right, and there he stood re
gardless of what the world might say.
His high sense of honor, strict integrity
of character and devotedness of ser
vice, made him a Saul among his Breth
ren. If from the shadow of the beyond he
could to-night utter his ideal of candor,
it would be, "(Speak of ine as I am, 'or
set down aught in malice.
As a husband, in the sacred circle of
home, to wife, as father to child, he was
loving, tender and true. No hearth
stone ever feit the presence of a kind
lier man. We have often heard him
say, "that he never gave to, nor re
ceived from his wife an unkind word."
lie was a kind, affectionate and indul
gent father and the best of all, ho was a
christian. He felt the blessed assur
ance that he was on the lord's side. He
had reached the point iu life where he
could bury all ill will and animosity
that lie may have cherished towards
others. He'lived in peace aud friend
tdiip with those around him.
While he was caring for himself he
forgot not others. He strengthened the
weak, cheered the disconsolate, lifted
up the fallen, carried aid to the need-,
sunshine to sail hearts aud darkened
Brother Stone was in many respects a
model man. I'neducated iu books, yet
he was a man of superior intelligence.
No one questioned what brother Stone
said. His word was his bond. He
dearly loved the Institution of Free
masonry, nd lived every day of his
life strictly iu accordance xwith its
teachings. But now he is gone. We
shall see his face on earth no more. We
feel that his spirit lias beeu exalted to
the glorious companionship of that un
dissolving lodge above, where the Su
peme Worshipful Master promises to
spread before us all the joys and glories
of his eternal Sabbat h. Where the de
signs of the Trestle Hoard will lie seen
completed. Where the adoration of the
twelfth hour will be everlasting joy.

There was a man in our town,
About a giant's size,
Who nearly starved to death,
Because lie wouldu't advertise.
And when he weighed but forty
lie grasped his rusty pen
And wrote an "ad" and published it,
And now he's fat again.
There are blunders of the species
"bull" which have not been born in
Ireland. Household Words notes a
few. It was a Scotch woman who
said that the butcher (.f her town
only killed half a beast a, a time.
It was a Dutchman who said a pig
had no marks on his ears except a
long tail. It was a British magis
trate who, when told by a certain
rascal that he was not married,
responded: "That Is a good thing
for your wife." It was a Portuguese
mayor who enumerated, among the
marks by which the body of a cer
tain drowned man might be identi
fied when found, "a marked im
pediment in his speech." It was a
Frenchman who, contentedly laying
his head on a stone jar for a apillow,
replied to an inquiry whether It was
not too hard: "Not at all, for I
have stuffed it with hay." And it
was an American who, lecturing
one evening, said: "Parents, you
may have children, or, if not, your
daughters may have."
