If there is anything girl should
cultivate it is repose. Simply do
nut allow your feet to swing and
your brows to pucker, btf compel
lace and feet to mind your will, and
will to ho calm and tranquil on the
outside if not beneath the surface.
A result of this will bo that the looking-quiet,
and moving gently, and
holding yourself iu control, will
bring ai nit a restful condition of
mind. You will feel better and be
less nervous if jou put down the
expression of nervousness. Ex

The subject of dutiful daughters is
sis old as the bills, but there are a
good many old subjects which need
repeating tor the benefit of growing
generations just as the old, old
story of spring is repeated by the
sun to the e.n tb, century after cen
tury, and just as the waves are for
fve'r repeating t he story of ebb and
Mow to t he shore.
Charming as the American girl is
acknowledged to be 'lie world over,
she is not infrequently a most un
dutiful daughter. 1 doubt if under
any titer ling which (louts to the

Not infrequently we see mothers
who mentally , physically an
tagonize tiicir daughters, but there
is a spiritual law. as well as the law
of ;oii, taste, which should compel
a daughter to he respectful and
polite to her mother, even if slip can
not give her love or admiration.
One cannot help the feeling that

I should think it would be a moth

to get on intimate terms with her

to lead her to talk of herself and to

I confess that a good, Htrong senti
ment of disgust mingles with my
pit v when I read of some distressed
mother of an erring daughter who
declares that she was notavvare that
her daughter even had an admirer.
Why do parents so quicklv forget
their own youth? It is incredible
that the sweetest and most romantic
part of life should fade from mem
ory wo wholly as it seems to do with
the majority of married people. It
is because the passion of youth is a
sort of intoxication, which, like the
drunkenness of wine, blurs the

full crop of wild oats to show both
amazement and indignation when a
daughter even indicates a propensity
to admire the opposite sex. Yet the
laws of nature are constantly prov
ing that daughters more frequently
than sons resemble their fathers.
One would think that a man who
had passed through the whirlwinds
of passionate youth might consider
it a sacred duty to carefully guide
and tenderly protect his children
through a similar period, not by
keeping them under lock and key,
but by giving them well chosen
associates and talking with them
freely and wisely regarding these
Newsy Notes of Late Modes.
Four-in-hand ties are made of
Madras, and are preferred to those
of silk for wear with cotton shirt
Little string ties to match the
shirt waist are very chic. The or
der for a shirt waist is generally
accompanied this season so a mak
er tells me with an order for "two
iies to match." White linen collars
are invariably worn when the string
tie "to match" is assumed. At
least one jacket of bright red goes
into the summer girl's wardrobe.
This she will wear with her pique or
other white gowns when out of town
and the evening air is chilly. The
red jacket has no trimming, and is
cut after the simple short blazer
model. Americans once scorned
red coats. Hut this was in the days
when we were not as friendly with
the Uritish as we are now. Crim
son is the royal household color.
The Queen's jubilee is responsible
for the little red jacket.
In direct contrast to the red jacket,
but wonderfully sweet, is the now
black cloth jacket, trimmed
with white lace applique. The red
jacket is not as suitable for dress

The very striking ones in water
proof silk 'are bright Prussian blue
outside and crimson within, having
every one detachable hoods, button
ing on below the collar, and their
front buttons made of big disks of
smoked pearl. This wrap is wholly
an evolution of ultra modern science,
as is the excellent dust ulster re
ferred to. Cornflower blue taffeta
silk is the dust ulster's proper ma
terial, though women, who are, by
the way, wearing them extensively
this summer, have what they call
carriage ulsters, made up in rich
tones of dahlia, golden brown and
llorentine red silk or linen. Mohair
is another goods individuals adapt
to this purpose, but mohair and
alpaca are hot, even if they are dust
proof. llrtliy Itoiinets.
Ilaby bonnets are almost too
pretty and dainty to wear. Fancy a
baby's rosebud face peeping out
from a frame of frilled white mus
lin caught up here and there by lit
tle bunches of pale pink rosebuds
and knots of forget-me-nots. Such a
bonnet is displayed in one of the
shops that devotes a large depart
ment to the wear of little folks. An
other delightful bonnet is a mix
ture of straw and satin. The
principal part of the bonnet is form
ed by a piece of broad white satin
ribbon. On either side of this is a
band of crumpled, coarse, yellow
straw. The front is framed in a frill
of white chiffon, while the flat piece
in the back is of white satin, encir
cled by the yellow straw. A frill of
white chifTon to fall over the neck
and strings of white mull complete
this very Frenchy little bonnet.
Blue and pink mull trimmed with
loops of gauze ribbon are very pretty,
and one beautiful bonnet is of white
silk, covered with point d'eaprit and
adorned with white satin loops and
bouquets of pink rosebuds.

Unfiles iis trimming, for cotton
frocks particularly, were spoken of
vaguely larlyiiith" spring, but as
summer advances the fact that ruf
fles are favorites is undeniable.
Unfiles must be nnderstanding'v
disposed to be effective. One ruffle i
too many or ruffles too scant or too
full will give a gown the unmistak
able stamp of amateur make.
Once the width of the skirt and
half over is the proper fulness for a
ruffle of organdie, lawn of cambric.
This rule of "once and a half" holds
good for bodice ruffl-s as well as
skirt. If net, lace, chilTon and other
equally flimsy fabrics are used for
ruffles the fulness should be a little
more ample, say one and two-thirds.
An exchange savs: "l'.iUence is
one of the rarest of Christian virtues.
It is a century plant that blossoms
but once in a hundred lives. Men
and women, devout christians, often
possess the other graces hut are
lacking in patience, the divine gift
of bearing with meek'tiess anything
for Christ's sake. Patience is gen
ius, said Rurfon, and Filizabeth
Barrett Browning, "in patience ye
are strong." Like the gentle flower
that opens its petals only during the
night watches to breathe out its
richest fragrance, patience is th
flowering of a life racked with pain,
plunged in sorrow, or tortured by
many cares, so that Paul said, "We
glory in tribulation knowing that
tribulation worketh patience."
Challi frocks are of great use in
summertime. When it is too cool
to wear a dimity or organdie a
challi is always in order.
One of the most fashionable dress
makers in St. Louis, who has sam
ples of all that is newest and best,
and will order material for a gown
from New Y'ork or Paris as readily
as she will buy for you in St. Louis,
showed ine the other day a collec
tion or some of the most, exquisite
challis that I have ever seen.
The sample of French gray challi
wiMi waving white satin lines run
ning through it had been chosen by
a stylish young matron, and madame
had just sent up to the workroom for
the completed costume.
It was the pink of perfection, with
its lining of light blue, the dust ruf
fles about the foot just showing the
merest trifle as the skirt was switch
ed about in walking. The skirt was
trimmed with three cluster? of alter
nating rows of white satin ribbon
and gray velvet ribbon half an inch
wide, five rows in a cluster, the
space between each cluster being
about o inches. The blouse bodice
was belted with a pointed girdle
formed of the two ribbons. Cut
steel clasps closed the girdle at the
side. A high stock collar was made
of orange colored chiffon.
In shoes one finds a new tan oxford
tie where the upper part is of soft
brown prunella, and the toes are of
brown patent leather. Some of
these shoes are really quite artistic.
The leather is cut out in fancy de
signs and stitched on in the neatest
way. They make the foot look
.smaller than the russet shoes of last
season did. There are also some
new kid ties where the leather has a
suede finish. They are elegant.
The boots for bicycling are unusually
pretty. Some are tan, some black
and some have fine canvas cloth tops
with kid fixings.

An Old YVoniHii lmiuiirft tli Siiiioii
Asn Lit and FlHiiil.
The members ot the First Baptist
church were treated to a genuine
sens ition during the progress of the
regular Sunday morning service
yesterday. A woman, undoubtedly
a monomaniac, created the sensa
tion by calling the preacher a liar,
his sermon a lie from beginning to
end and the whole service a farce.
Shortly after the beginning of the
sermon a plainly dressed old woman,
seated about midway of the church,
was heard by all around her to mut
ter under her breath, "It's a lie."
At frequent intervals during the
sermon she was heard to repeat this
assertion when certain statements
were made by the preacher, but her
nnitterings were so low that they
did not interfere with the service to
any considerable extent, and she
was not disturbed.
As Dr. Garrett was concluding his
sermon, in explaining the relations
of Baptists toward other denomina
tions, he took occasion to say that
members of other denominations
must not be judged and condemned;
that Methodists believed their
doctrines were right as firmly as
Baptists believed in theirs, etc. At
the mention of Methodists, for whom
she seemed to have aspecial dislike,
the old woman arose from her seat,
marched down the aisle, took a
stand directly in front of the pulpit
and iu a loud tone of voice de
nounced the whole proceedings.
With vehement gestures she de
clared that Dr. Uarrett was a liar,
that his sermon was an immense lie
and that the whole service was a
Several of the deacons of the
church at once went to the old
woman and after considerable
trouble succeeded in removing her
from the building.

He evidently was from the rural
districts, and therefore his uneasi
ness upon what presumably was his
first visit to a photographer could
easily be overlooked. At last, when
he was summoned to the operating
room and caught a whiff of the
chemicals from the "dark room," he
hesitated on the threshold, half sus
piciously, says the Chicago Times
Herald. "Come in ; come right in," said the
camera man reassuringly. "Do
you want a vignette?"
"N-no, I guess not," replied the
old man. "I guess I can stand it
"Would you like a photograph of
your head ouly? Or would you pre
fer one half length, or full length?"
inquired the photographer.
" vVell, now, I'll tell you how it is,
mister," remarked the old granger,
confidentially. "This picture is for

A jubilee story avers that one of
the Queen's grandchildren, Prince
Alexander, son of Princess Beatrice,
after having been refused extra
spending money by his mother,
boldly applied to the Queen herself
for a sovereign. But she, having
been warned of his spendthrift hab
its, merely sent him a letter of re
proach and good counsel. Two days
later the ten-year old Alexander re
plied: "Dear Grandma: I received
your letter. Do not think I was
sorry to get only your reproving
words? Your good advice has been
much appreciated. 1 have old your

The late election brouuht out some
new words, such as "l'opocrat," "Ilan
nacrat," and other kinds of crats, and
also produced some new species of
"bugs." The "goldbug" was the fellow
that only wanted one "standard" in his
political" wagon; the "silverhug" was
the fellow that couldn't ride without
two standards; the "straddlebug" was
the citizen that used to vote the Demo

and sent to the pen, for ten years. Then

bicycle company :

The man who thinks that he is
bigger than his church usually dis
covers that he has taken too flatter
ing an estimate of himself. Some
times he makes this discovery to his
sorrow. If he asserts his liberty by
drawing out, the church goes for
ward as though nothing serious had
happened. We do not understand
the temper of the man who changes
his denominational relations its
easily as he change his coat. Such
a step should never be taken save
under the compulsion of profound
convictions or radical personal
preferences. Christian Advocate.
