THE COLUMBIA IIEKALI): FRIDAY, APHIL Hi, l!s;7.
AT THE BABY'S BEDTIME.
This in the Imbv'if bedtime:
My little one conies tome
In her snowy little night-frown,
And kneels down at in v knee,
And I fancy a weet child-angel
Is for a time my cuest,
As she says her little prayer over
With her hands upon her breast.
"Now I lay nil'," she whispers
In low voice, "down to sleep;
I pray the Lord'' and the blue
Half closed, "my soul to keep.
If I should die" Oh ! the shiver
At my heart "before I wake"
I)roppe'd low, "my soul to take."
Then I lift up the little one,
Her close to my loving heart,
And give her warm good-night
Till the closed lids break apart
As the leaves do, folding a flower,
And the violets of her eyes
Look up in their drowsy fashion,
And smile at me, angel-wise.
"Dood night," she whispers me
That lingers with me in slumber,
And stirs my heart with bliss,
As I think of the little one, deam
ing With her head against my
Till my sleep is as full of rapture
As her dreaming is of rest.

a matter of fact, the ugly words are
possessed of the most vitality. The
gray-haired man wishes sometimes
that he could forget the harsh and
cruel things that were said to him
in his far-away youth. But the iron
intered into his soul then, and fifty
vears afterwards it is still rankling.
Much of the unhappiness of life is
caused by good people who can
never do a painful act, and seldom
speak a gentle word. One of the cu
rious contradictions of human na
ture is that people who are morbidly
sensitive to physical sulfering are
wholly indifferent to spiritual an
guish. We have known men who
could give away thousands of dol
lars who could not speak one kindly
word to children or dependents. The
Bible beautifully describes the life
of God not only as loving and kind,
but as characterized by "loving
kindness," a" distinction which few
have mastered, but which contains
ft great truth. Exchange.

The Human Sunbeam.
The sunshiny girl always tells
the truth, and she knows exactly
how lacking in refinement is the wo
man who bestows upon her acquain
tances mid friends fulsome llattery;
but she also knows that there are
always pleasant things to be said
and a pleasant way to say them.
The sunshiny girl, realizing that life
will give to her exactly what she
gives to it, is generous with smiles,
with pleasant words and with good
actions. She fills a room with her
own joyfulness, and even the wo
man who is most bitter cannot say a
disagreeable :word to her, because
she herself is pleasant.
It, is no light matter to ask wha1
we ourselves aro dispensing. The
possession of a cheerful atmosphere
lias been given to a few rarely gifted
ones. For the le-s favored, however,
there is the possibility of acquisi
tion. There is a modern theory that
gives the suggestive name "hypno
sis" to the medieval epidemics of
persecution and fanaticism, and
which goes on further to claim that
self-hypnosis, with a result either of
cheerfulness or gloominess of mood,
is not only possible but a common,
every day occurrence. What an ad-

Straws of every color as being em
ployed, even to the most vivid yel
low, that, toned down by black iace
and velvet, with sable plumes, strass
ornaments, and a white rose or two,
makes an enective and not over
gaudy piece of modern millinery.
The vogue of scarlet, crimson,
poppy-red, and flamingo-pink hats
appears likely to continue, but as
these chapeaux aro visible at a dis
tance, it is necessary to wear them
with excessively quiet, and as far as
possible, neutral-toned gowns.
Foliage of every sort, says a New
York fashion letter, is likewise em
ployedthe tender leaves of birch,
ivy. rose, poplar, of field daisies,
heliotrope, mignonette, maid en-hair-fern
fronds, etc., and when
blending with a few appropriate
flowers, the effect Is very charming;
but if present senseless excess in
decoration is to be avoided, the
wearer must this spring select the
desired amount of garniture herself,
and insist upon this quantity and no
more. A fairly normal French hat
exhibited this week was made of
coarsely plaited dark-green straw
trimmed round the jam-pot crown
with clusters of alternate pausies in
shaded velvet, and sprays of yellow
mimosa, with a glimmer here and
there of pale green velvet. Violets
are the rage again in every sort of
tint, from palest mauve to the soft
blue and plumred shades.
Oddly enough, the all-red hat,
that at the moment engages so
much of the milliner's time and
attention, looks best over blond
locks. Some time ago when color
was not the study it now is, only
the brunette ventured to wear red.
Now the brunette seldom wears red.
The combinatian of black hair, dark
eyes and red gown or hat is really
too striking to be artistic, and so the
fair little blonde has added another
color to her list, and lias fearlessly
taken to wearing the dear little red
hats that are bo bewitchingly bright
and attractive that it is hard to pass

Itrief Fashion Note.
Not all gowns and hats match, but
most of them do.
Hats are trimmed very high on
one side, with flowers or feathers,
and persist in tilting forward.
Embroidered grass lawns have
lost none of their popularity, and re
turn this season with many new
touches of beauty.
Pique suits will be extensively
worn later in the season, and are in
the usual coat and skirt style or in
the sailor costume with blouse and
wide collar, ine coats are very
short, with wide or narrow revers as
best suits the figure, and are
trimmed with braid. Shirt waists
of China silk, in some plain, bright
color win be worn with white pique
dresses, and some of the white
gowns have colored linen revers and

The old practice of holding the
sxirtupon ootn sides, wnicn was
the manner of the belles or 1830, has
returned to fashion, owing to the
width of skirts. It is so distinctly
modest and feminine that the dalnt
iest of women are following it.
Hcotth plaid neckties of soft silk
are to be tied under the little half-
inch bend of the new linen collars
Bolero jackets of embroidery and
heavy lace, are to be found in the
shops, and will afford very dressy
little adjuncts to the cotton frocks
of the warmer season.
Ribbon belts are of various widths,
as are most becoming to the figure
but one of the latest varieties is
made of liberty satin, cut bias, and
draped around the waist in the form
or a wldenointed cirdle.
Old fashioned poplins are gladly
welcomed as a leading dress fabric;

the way down the front, slashed at
the shoulder, and a sort of modified

the cuffs were bordered with a
ribbed coat braid in havana brown.
The sleeves were quite respectable

with ruby velvet carnations, and

Unless iu a library where the walls
are covered with bookcases from

not nearly so much used as hanging
shelves in L-shape, fitted into the
corners about three feet from the

shelves in every corner. Another
pretty idea is to have a set in one,
two or three tiers fitted acoss the
ends back of the divan. These, to

of skirt and jacket. This is and al

upon such a suit with all Its acces

my mind a suit just finished for

M earned Coffee.
A housekeeper guards against in
competency on the part of the maid
with the morning coffee by having
it steamed a process advised by
some cooks. It is made in a double
boiler, the usual proportions being
followed. After the boiling water is
added, the vessel is set in its hot
water kettle and steamed for 20
minutes. There is no risk that
coffee made in this way will be
