Neckwear Is Very Itrllllant.
Tliere is very little to say that is
new of the shirtwaist collars. The
high band of linen with points turn
ed down under the cbin Is still the
regulation collar, though many of
the expensive waist iiave collars to
match. Hut these I noti ie are ad
justable, so it is an easy matter to re
place them with one of white linen.
The collar that is to be worn with
string ties comes up high and turns
doAii until it is really a double band
of linen. The string tie. is run iu
underneath so that it does not show,
and is tied iu frouc, of course. Black
satin is the favorite string tie,
though very cool little ties are made
of delicately colored lawns. But
these are Just for real warm weath
er wea". The ties to be worn at
present are decidedly brilliant.
"Never," says H trper's B izr. in
commenting upon the latest iu neck
wear, "in the history of man and
woman, have there been so many
and buch fascinating things for the
neck displayed in the shops as at
the present time. Tlie woman who
cannot find ' something becoming
amongst the varieties must be ex
St for llm Children.
Like the spring gowns of tlie mam
mas, the new frocks of the small
maids will show many an elab
orate touch, while tlie small boys
'ill appear in very manly little rigs,
both as to trousers and j tckets and
top coats. There are now only a
few little L ird Fauutleroys to be
seen, thanks to Dame Fashiou's sen
sible con lusion. Just a word about
the small boy's new ciothes:
The everyday suit of the well
dressed young American will be of
the sailor style, made of stout blue
cloth, but seldom having the long
sailor trousers, His best suit wi I
be of sin.ooth, dark cloth, with the
smartest sort of little j tcket turning
back square to show a full blouse of
snowy li en free from any frills, but
f)nely tucked und closed with small
studs. His overcoat is of dark blue
, Tlie smallest boy or, at least, the
Smallest boy in trousers would
scorn to wear a big frilled collar.
Very cunning, indeed, he looks with
points turned do wn under the chin
and a small plaid bow tie.
In the small girl's , woolen frocks
1 notice that blouse effects and
yokes are much lu vogue.
Various shades of blue will be
vastly p ipular lu children's frocks.
In the wa m days, white will be
most in vogue for the tiny misses.
Many bright ribbons will adorn
the sm trtest frocks. ilomati sashes
will be much woru by young girls,
as well as by their older sisters.
' No little maid's wardrobe will be
complete without naif a dozen bright
gingiiams. These will be. made
with many narrow ruffles on both
skirt anu waist. It is an excellent
time just af this season to .purchase
and make up the children's wash
dresses and aprons. 'i , :
Very trim little sailors, will serve
for strictly out-of-door,' ,aiil! every
day wear for small .girl,',, t'ne now
lelt .sailors have flat crowns Hnd
rather broad '.' brims. Tneir truii
ming.cousists of a band of ribbon
aud tl it bow at the side. For sum
mer lime wear, Hats attr this style
will appear iu plain, dark blue aud
pearl white straw. The Easter hats
of, children will be exceedingly
flowery, a silver gray straw will be
lu the lead in millinery for chil
dren. Tnis forms an excellent foun
dation and background for all varie
ties of flowers.
As the season advances, tan shoes
and stockings will he worn almost
exclusively for everyday, with wash
frockn. Fiaid stockings with smart
little black boots are the vogue at
pivseut. For dancing, slippers and
stockings match, and are the same
color as the frock, ri'riped stock
ings, with the stripes running up
and down will be, worn next sum
mer with low black shoes.
Spring wraps for children include
iu their range the longest and the
shortest. For girls from (5 to 10,
there are coats of soft, heavy silK,
pleated to veiret or embroidered
yoks, and reaching to the bottom
of tlie little skirls. For older girls
say from 10 to 15 tnere are short,
little box front j icknts. lined mil irt
ly with silk and closing with big
pearl buttons. These jickein have
narrow collars ami Mimll revns,
and pfeS'eiiVaii exquisitely neat Hp
pearanoe. They come iu all colors
In McClure's Magazine for Decem
ber there is a very rad ible article
bv W. T. Htead on "Hymns That
Have Helped " Of course Cardinal
Newman's "Lead, Kindly Light,"
claims attention, an I the writer
tells us that of all the modern hymns
praying for guidance, Newman's
famous three verses seem t be
most popular, "specially with peo
ple who nave not accepted the lead
ing or any church or theological
authority, ana further ad Is the sig
nitlcant statement tli.it "At Chicago
the represent itives of evry cree l
k no Art) to man found tv thirty oti
which they agreed They could all
join In tlie Lord's-Prayer", an I they
could all slug 'Lsad, Kindly
Light.'" Qreatnr praise th i.i this
could not be bestowed Its oithos
and its beauty, itschitdlike trutaud
faith in God, appeal to th bnliever
and Alls his heart with a siuse of
security th it naught eU can do.
How many, though, are they who
cannot strive as they miy have
that sublime faith ; only the searcher
of all hearts knows. They who can
not see, who cannot wain blindly,
are not, we think, less sincere and
earnest iu thei- desire to believe
than tho-e who do. Mr. Stea I gives
us iu his interesting article lines
from on- of that cUss, an agnostic,
which in beauty and sublimity of
expression are second only to L -aj,
Kindly Light," which iuspired
them. They are worthy of repro
duction, and are as follows:
The way is dark ; I cry amid the gloom
Kor guiding light;
A wanderer, none knows whence or
what his doom,
I brave the night
Fair scenes afar, as in a dream. I see
Then seem to wake and faith deserteth
In wondering awe I bend the knee be
fore The viewless Might;
And all my heart in mute appeal 1 pour,
While straining sight
Peers o'er tlie waste, yet Him I cannot
Whom seeks my soul ; grope as gr pe
Rut 'mid confusing phantom lights I
To go arght;
A still small voice jeads on, and love
An inward might;
And spite of sense, tliere lives a silent
That day will dawn, that man is more
The most fervent believer cannot,
we think, question the sincerity of
the doubter, who thus earnestly
seeks the light, nor can we believe
but what its celestial rays will yet
guide him through the gloom of to
day Into the great to-morrow.

It Is just as easy to teach a child
how to speak well as it is to teach
him how to walk well or eat well;
but "how is this to be done?"
some parent asks. I answer: By
doing so yourself; bv bsiug as c ire
ful of your own talk as you would
have your children be. Many
mothers look forward to seeing their
children become educated and re
fined, and they are sadly disap
pointed, when, in after years, their
children are handicapped in their
struggle for success. l'tie fault is
that in the very beginning the child
was not taught to he careful of hi
speech. When a mere babe on its
mother's knee, it was talked to in
language like this:
"B'ess its 'itle heartie; ain't 'e
s'eet? '.Ook up, at V mudder, an'
dib 'er a tisV,,;';-,,:
Now this illustrates the point well.
After the child gets older he is talked
to iu a similar manner in proportion
to his age; and so on. Whe'tjt jfe
makes a big grammatical hliltider,
Instead of correcting him tot lp,l,'flls
mistake is laughed at, and tli child
thinks he is saying something sin irt,
and consequently he takes pride in
saying it again; nntil, finally, it bi'
comes such a fixed habit that vrr'e
cannot drop it if he tries. The- boV
is sent from home to learn' Litin and
French, aud he discovers.) that he
has his own language to. learn first,
and that when he mingles with the
world and getsout of the littleshpere
where he h is been confined, it is like
going to a foreign country, where the
inanuers(rtnd customs and language
ae all ,diu;re:it from his ou.
