THE COLUMBIA HERALD: FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1898.
Make new friends, tint keep the old,
Those are silver, but ihee are gold;
New-made friendships, like new wine,
A)!" will mellow and rcline.
Friendships that have stood the test
Time and change are surelv best;
ISrow mny wrinkle, hair grow gray,
Kriendnhii) never knows decay.
For, 'mid old friend, tried and true,
Onoe more we our vouth renew.
Hut old friends. Bin's! may die,
New friends must their pUee supply.
Cherish friendship in your breast,
New is Rood, but old is best;
Make new fiiends, hut keep the old,
Those are silver, these are gold.
Her First Low.
Human nature lias no essence more
pure, the world knows nothing more
chaste, heaven lias endowed the
mortal heart with no feeling more
holy, than the nascent affection of a
young virgin's soul. The warmest
language of the sunny South is too
cold to shadow forth even a faint
outline of that enthusiastic senti
ment. And God has made the rich
est language poor in the same re
spect, because the depths of hearts
that thrill with love's emotions are
too sacred for the common contem
plation. The musical voice of love
stirs the source of the sweetest
thoughts within the human breast
and steals into the most profound
recesses of the soul, touching chords
which never vibrated before and
calling into gentle companionship
delicious hopes till then unknown.
Yes the light of a young maiden's
first love breaks dimly but beauti
fully upon her as the silver luster of a
star glimmers through a thickly
woven bower, and the first blush
that mantles her cheek, as she feels
the primal influence, is faint and
pure as that which a rose leaf might
cast upon marble. Hut how rapidly
does the light grow stronger, and the
flush deeper until the powerful
effulgence of the one irradiates every
corner of her heart, and the crimson
glow of the other suffuses every fea
ture of her countenance. New York
"They talk about a woman's sphere
As though it had a limit
There's not a place in earth or Heaven,
There's not a task to mankind given,
There's not a blowing or a woe,
There's not a whisper "yes" or "no,"
There's not a life, a death or birth,
There's not a feather's weight or worth
Without a woman in it."
Boleros are very much worn, and
areseen in many different shapes.
Toques are to lead in spring mil
linery, and they are about the only
small hats shown.
Hats all in pure white will be in
troduced late, into summer mil
linery. Roses and violets will be the most
popular flowers for spring millinery ;
pansies and nasturtiums are also
In woman's dress everything is
growing softer. There is a tendency
in the skirt to cling the lmdiste
sees to it that they shall, and blous
es are made of the stuffs that have
the least stiffening. Dress skirts, as
has long been known, have bepn rob
bed of their stilf facings, and nw
petticoat-, either starched or of stilf
and rustling stuffs, must give place
to those of soft silk or clinging mus
lins. The latest and most popular s'de
combs are small, of shell or amber,
and handsomely decorated with cut
steel. Bometimps the steel iy mere
ly a band of small beads, or put on
in arabesque design or clover leaves.
Amber combs are more in favor just
now than the darker shell, especial
ly with women who have light hair.
The most up-to-date ones are stud
ded with colored stones for evening
wear, and, if chosen to harmonize
or contrast with the hair, are very
Black t'Ufeta skirts with many
narrow ruflles and rows of velvet
ribbon are being shown in all the
leading shops, and fashionable dress
makers hold orders for dozens of
them. That the tatlVta skirt will
have an unusual popularity there is
not the least doubt. With fancy
waists the taffeta skirt will be very
useful even in summer, for unlined
it is as light and cool as muslin.
Low shoes, a knowing ghoe man
tells me, will be worn from the mo
ment the weather permits of leaving
off high boots. Only for strictly out
ing wear and with washable frocks
will the tan low shoes or high either
beworn. The shoe of plain, soft,
black leather is to be by far the
most elegant shoe of the season.
This will not be pointed, but will
have h medium round toe. There is
a somewhat noticeable effort to in
troduce high heels, but, like the
trailing skirt, they are not spoken of
as a style, but a a novelty.
There is one thing ure, and that
is that we have pel-tight sleeves.
But this doesn't matter much so
long as we have ruflles. With ruf
lles we may present that Unify ef
fect that at first it seemed the going
of the big sleeves would take away
from us. But from the shoulder to
the wrist the 'OS sleeve is just as
tight as one dare make it. Bodices
are 'uflled and skirts are ruf1l-d and
sleeves are capped with ruflles, but
no matter how tucked or puffed the
sleeve must not "tand away from the
arm in the least degree. It is only
in the shirt waist that a moderately
loose sleeve is allowed.
Pure white pique woven in striped
patterns is a choxen waist fabric.
These piques will be made with
the stripes en bayadere, some of the
choicest patterns being woven in the
crosswise stripes. The same effect,
however, may be obtained by re
versing the goods, when woven with
lengthwise stripes. To be essen
tially correct in every detail, the
white pique shirt waist
one broad center plait at
a single pointed yoke for
ess below laid In flit
plaits. The sleeves, of moderate di
mensions, should have narrow link
cuffs. The neck is finished with a
stock collar of the same material,
having a narrow tie, which passes
around to the front and forms the
stifr regulation bow of masculine at
tire. This neck finish may be va
ried by using the Ascot puff ends,
with the close-fitting stock in place
of the string tie. With such a waist,
well made and perfect fitting, one
may even at this early date, attend
an informal evening gathering and
ieei assured ot being according to
the latest mode.
For Mourning Wear.
Fashions in mourning are con
stantly changing. This year a wi
dow who has put olf her first heavy
weeds, but who still clings to her
veil, is wearing the latter of very
coarse siik net ooruereu with crape
for five inches. Heavy crape is very
much worn for trimming, but it is
made into folds, and then these are
braided or made into stiff patterns
fur the trimming of bodices or skirts,
says the Puritan.
It is often quite difficult to find
just the appropriate mourning gowns
for young girls. Camel's hair, hen
rietta cloth and cashmere are always
appropriate, but there is no reason
why for very young girls they should
not be lightened by sashes of soft
silk and shirred skirts of silk mus
lin. Girls should wear white as
much as possible in the house. Hats
with any sort of feathers are also
most inappropriate. There are sup
posed to be no festive occasions dur
ing a period of mourning, and for
other times a plain felt trimmed in
dull silk is the proper hat, a veil on
a very young girl being out of place
always, according to the authority
Parasols Have Long Handles.
A great number of new parasols
show handles that one might think
absurdly long, but the long handle
has its purpose, which is not wholly
that of novelty.
The pompadour hair and hats piled
high with trimming delicate flow
ers and dainty aigrettes, make it
necessary to hold the parasol high
above the head.
The new parasol is similar . to the
La Tosca, but of more exaggerated
The handle is perfectly straight,
and is of carved ivory or pearl.' The
awkwardness of the length is some
what relieved by a big bow ribbon
that matches the gown. The shade
itself is very small.
The best effect of the new parasol
is when it is closed. Held, then,
like ashepherdess crook, with grace
ful poise of the body, with sash
a-flutter and picturesque hat the par
asol does its part toward perfecting
a very pretty picture.
Ruflles are plentiful on the newest
parasols. White parasols will be
highly in vogue during the summer.
A dainty little novelty in this line
has a row of narrow lace insertion
between each narrow ruffle, which
is itself edged with tiny lace. The
material proper of this parasol is
mousseline de sole. Cihffon has lost
not of its popularity in white para
sols. For everyday use, the taffeta para
sol, in colors, corresponds with the
costume, and, with a plain handle
of moderate length is in best taste.
Her father was bald ; she was thus
able to print a kiss in long primer up
on his brow. "Papa," she sighed, "I
am considerably embarrassed to dis
cover that Ian. engaged to marry
both the Duke Fritz (Sniggle and the
Count Hoboheim." "How like her
mother to jump in and buy more of
a thing than she wants, just because
it is cheap!" mused the old man,
much moved. Detroit Journal.
Take any bits of chicken you have,
chop as fine as possible, then pound

get, salt, pepper and the yolks and

Breadmaklng and Bread Keeping;.
A stone-ware jar, glazed inside,
with lid, makes a fine "bread rais
er," better than those of tin design
ed for the purpose. It retains the
heat longer than tin, and having
straight sides it is easier to gauge
the rising to tell wheu it is doubled
When bread comes from the oven,
rub the tops over with good sweet
butter, lean one end of each loaf on
the bottom of the inverted pan, the
other end on the bread board, and
cover with a fresh towel, then with
a thick breadcloth old tablecloth
and let them stand until perfectly
cold. If a hard crust is preferred,
do not use the butter or covers.
Keen bread in a stone jar with
close fitting lid or in a regular tin
bread box, either of which should
be kept as sweet as a rose by thor
oughly scalding twice a week and
then by sunning or by heating on
the stove. A general rule regarding
time for breadmaking is this: In
winter mix bread in the evening; in
spring and fall, late at night or very
early in the morning; in summer, in
the morning. Ella Morris Kretsch
mar in Woman's Home Companion.
A Tempting; Dessert.
A loaf of angel food filled with
charlotterusse is a new dessert that
is much liked. The loaf of cake
must be baked in a deep round pan,
and just before it is needed cut a
layer from the top, take out the cen
ter of the under part without break
ing the wall, and fill in the space
with the charlotterusse. Put the
top on the cake, cover with a soft
frosting, and scatter over it powder
ed macaroons or candied violets.
A housewife whose cakes are al
ways a success tells me that she al
ways uses granulated sugar for
angel food, and powdered sugar for
such close-grained cake as pound
cake. Granulated sugar requires
more vigorous beating than pow
dered. Care or the Eyes.
One of the simplest and best rem
edies for inflammation or strain is to
bathe the eyes in warm water. An
other good remedy is a solution of
salt and water made by putting a
teaspoonful of fine table salt into a
half pint of water. Let it boil and
when cold strain it, removing any
particles or sediment. Putting this
on the outside of the lids is simply a
waste of time. The eye' should' be
opened, the lids drawn, back, and
the inflamed portion touched with a
camel's hair-brush dipped in the
salt water. Outside applications do
not reach the seat of the ailment.
A teaspoonful of boracic acid in half
a pint of water prepared in the same
way is excellent. If there are gran
ulations and very serious inflamma
tion, boil a teaspoonful of alum in a
pint of water until it is dissolved,
then strain or filter as described, and
apply with a camel's hair-brush
several times a day. This is one of
the most efficacious of remedies.
The care of the eyes is perhaps one
of the most imperfectly understood
of any of oar daily duties. More ills
arise from their misuse than the
public generally appreciate. Epi
lepsy is a frequent result of eye
strain, and a careful and intelligent
observa ion will convince most
people that more headaches come
from abuse of the eyes than from
any other cause. Probablyone-sixth
of the adult population of this
country would be benefited by the
use of glasses, at least during their
working hours. They tire quickly,
the head aches, the digestive appa
ratus is completely upset, there is
pain in the back, and a general feel
ing of dizziness and nausea, and the
true cause is never suspected. The
patient is billious or nervous; has
indigestion or liver complaint. The
evil is attributed to everthing but
the proper cause. Fit the persons to

Dean Jmlft Makes John a Partner.
"Look ye, man; why haven't you
cleaned and polished my boots?"
asked Dean Swift of h is eccentric ser
vant, John, at a tavern where they
had just passed the night.
"What's the use of polishing such
things?" asked John, doggedly, as
he held up the boots, discolored and
grimmy as when they were taken
olf the nightbefore.
"Very true," said the Dean; and
without further protest, he put them
on. Then he went to the office and
gave orders that no one should give
John any breakfast. He partook of
his own, and directed the host
ler to saddle the horses and lead
them to the door.
"Mercy," cried John, wheu he
found the Dean ready to start, "I
haven't had my breakfast yet!"
"O," replied Swift, "I can't see
the use of your breakfasting; you
would soon be hungry again!"
John could think of no answer to
such an unexpected application of
his own sophistry, so he maintained
a stoical silence.
