A little dream of white,
And a little stream of blue,
And that's the Kaater bonnet
That is Kweot enough for you!
A kiss beneath that bonnet
Is an sweet as honey-dew,
And the rib I ion blue upon It
Tangles all the heart of you!
A little dream of white,
And a little stream of blue
Arid that's the K.ster tnnnet
Our dear old sweethearts knew!
A kiss beneath that bonnet
taado youri;lad lips wish for two,
And that's the Easter bonnet
That is sweet enough for you!
An old adage has It: "Whatso
ever i worth doing at all is wortli
doing well." This motto is, the key
note of success. The boy who plays
with a right gooa-will, when it is
the proper time for play, and who
studies as hard as he plays, is the
boy who will get on in life.
Michelangelo was one day ex
plaining to a visitor at his gtudio
what he had been doing at a sta
tue since his previous visit. "Hut
these," said the friend, "are trifles."
"It may be so," replied Michelan
gelo, "but trifles make perfectiou,
and perfection is no trifle."
Bamuel timiles declared that
"close observation of little things is
the secret of success in business, in
art, in science, and in every pursuit
When Charles James Fox was ap
pointed Hecretary of State, being
piqued at some remark made abouc
his penmanship, he actually took
lessons from a master, that he might
do better. Though very stout he
was especially expert at the game
court tennis, and when asked how
he managed it so well, replied : "Be
cause I am a painstaking man."
Earnest application ami attention
to all the details will accomplish
more than slothful genius.

Skirts of the Saon.
The skirts for Btreet wear just
barely clear the ground. The skirt
that slightly trails is designed for
indoor wear or dressy occasions.
Nearly all the fashionable visiting
gowns trail slightly. The style is
certainly very graceful. The new
trailing skirt is particularly artistic
in effect, for it falls loose and un
lined, being only fastened to the silk
foundation at the waist line.
The newest skirts are from 3J to
4 yards wide. They are cut in
from five to eight pieces so as to
make a perfect fit over the hips and
yet allow enough fullness about the
feet. All the fullness at the top is
drawn in narrow at the back, and
from the waist the skirt falls in very
graceful, easy folds. Sensible wo
men are refusing to accept the trail
ing skirt for the street. The most
fashionable women are quite willing
to have a marked difference in their
outdoor and indoor gowns.
Wide tucks on sk'rts are greatly
in vogue. The present cut shows off
this style of trimming to good ad
vantage, and the cloth being sepa
rate from the lining it is not such a
difficult matter to put tucks in.
Tiny trimmings in the 6hape of
groups of ribbon, either in bands or
quilled, narrow ruilW, and quilliugs
of silk, cloth or velvet, are put on
all the newest skirts.
Extra black taffeta skirts, with
narrow ruffles and rows of black
velvet ribbon, are being shown in
the leading shops. These will be
worn throughout the spring and
summer with fancy silk waists and
with cotton shirtwaists. Taffeta is
the one silken fabric that seems in
keeping with cotton stuffs. The
pink, blue and buff chambray
waists, and later on, those of white
dotted Swiss, will look decidedly
fetching with the taffeta skirt.
Other extra skirts, of the ready
made variety, are in light weight
woolen stuffs, in mingled blues
browns and greens, or of checked ot
plaid stuffs in soft, quiet tones. .
Just what the skirt for real sum
mer wear will be has not yet been
revealed. Pique and duck, so high
ly favored for two summer seasons,
will not b considered the ultra
fashionable the coming summer. Of
this much I am certain. Black and
gray poplin skirts will have a de
cided vogue. I am rather inclined
to think poplin will be the one fa
bric of all others in the lead for the
everyday summer skirt. It is an ex
cellent material, for it sheds dust,
dors not spot when sprinkled, and it
sponged before making up, will not

A Pretty Thought.
A pretty girl who has had her
share of adulation, and apprecia
tion, has not kept a diary, as most
girls do, but she has nevertheless, a
large volume rather more Interest
ing, since it is a faithful record, "ac
cording to the documents," of her
sweet 18 years. Her mother calls it
her "variety book," and began the
record herself, bv preserving for the
little one everything of interest per
taining to her early years, begin
ning with the announcement of the
first birthday party, when the little
girl was only one year old. The
quaint little invitation is pasted on
the first page, and after it a little
"society notice," with a record of
the gifts received. 1 Then comes in
vitations to other little parties.
After these the dancing school pro
grammes, descriptions of the little
lassie and her costumes, records of
parts taken in juvenile plays, etc
Then conie the school with the
teacher's reports, good, bad and in
different, and along with them are
more invitations, more parties,
clubs, etc., which accounts some
times, no doubt, for the qual'ty of
the teacher's reports. About this
time pressed flowers make their ap
pearance; bits of ribbon or a scrap
of the frock worn on certain oc
casions, and notes notes galore, ad
dressed to the demoiselle, very con
ventional, to be sure, but reading
between the lines, they mean a good
deal, for here are society notices,
coupling her name with other
names at various junctions of the
play, more or less frequently. Then
gradually these names drop out and
others come in; mor flowers, more
notes, and ball programmes well
filled, and favors galore; and there
are changes of scene the sea shore,
the lakes, the mountains and from
the clippings that go along with
these souvenirs, it is easy to see
that she has grown into a charming
young woman. How many hun
dreds of pounds of candy she must
have consumed, judging from the
sweet notes, and in many instances,
the mottoes preserved. How many
tons of flowers she has watched
fade, as both notes and pressed blos
soms show. Withal how very much
pleasure this little hook gives in
after years, when a little glimpse
into its contents will brighten the
path and sweeten the sorrows that
times surely brings.

A Knaiitiful Idea.
a new iaea in entertaining is as
welcome as "flowers that bloom In
the spring" to the jaded society
woman who just must return the
many social attentions she has ac
cepted, and is racking her brain for
some new way of doing it. To such
a one the following novel luncheon
given a short time ago by an origi
nal woman may prove suggestive.
Before entering the dining-room
a maid passed around among the
guests with a tray full of loose
flowers all 6orts of flowers from
which each woman selected the one
that pieasea ner oest ana carried or
wore it to the table, where its dupli
cate resting beside a plate indicated
her place. Attached to this blossom
was a card with a fortune written
upon it and the reading of these va
rious fortunes by their chance pos
sessor created no end of merriment
at the feast. No matter how absurd
or unsuitable to the reader the fort
une might be, no offense could pos
sibly be taken, as no intention could
be suspected by such an arrange
ment. Another pretty feature of
this luncheon was the serving of a
salad in a bright red apple, which
had been scooped out to admit of a
delicious concoction in the form of a
salad and then placed on tender
green young lettuce leaves. The
color effect was beautiful and novel.
Kllinette Observed by the HomIpm and
Ceremonious calls should be paid
between the hours of luncheon,
about half past 2 and half past 5 in
the afternoon. They ought never to
he paid on Sunday. The hostess
must immediately detach herself
from those with whom she may be
conversing and step forward to greet
the newcomer and speak to her for a
few minuets until she finds a com
fortable seat. When a visitor enters
a drawing-room, she should study to
enter with self possession and com
posure. To some nervous women it
is undoubtedly an awkward moment
when entering a room full of possible
strangers, but the ordeal should be
gone through with with as smiling a
face as may be, and is, at the worst, a
very short ordeal, for, havingshaken
hands and greeted you, the hostess
witl hasten to pass you on to a seat
somewhere in the room, so that she
may be at liberty to receive other
When entering a drawing-room, it
is a great mistake to stop and speak
to friends until the hostess has been
greeted. It is enough to bow and
smile and perhaps say in pissing,
"I'll see you again presently." It is
also not the best taste to go round
the room and shake hands with
everyone of your acquaintance who
may be present.. It is better to bow
to those who may be farther off and
wait for a chance that may bring
them your way. Not, however, that
it would be incorrect once .during
the visit to change your seat' for one
by an intimate friend with whom
you may wish to speak.
We have so far been regarding the
visitor as calling with a number of
others, but should a lady call and be
shown into the empty drawing room,
pending the hostess' arrival, she
should take a convenient seat and
await her. It would not be well for
the lady of the house to enter and
find you standing, as though a com
plete tour and inspection of the room
had been your recent occupation.
When two ladies call together, they
should be careful that the hostess
does not come in and And them just
concluding some private conversa
tion. An ordinary call of the kind we
are now considering should not ex
ceed 2-5 minutes unless its extension
is urged by t he hostess. A first cere
monious visit should never be longer
than 15 minutes. Some ladies cut it
down to ten.
Nothing is more" tiresome than a
formal visit, for so little interesting
conversation can be entered into,
but there are a few subjects that
must not be touched upon I. e.,
personal ailments, domestic incon
veniences and the discussion of mut
ual friends, save In the briefest and
most kindly manner. Gossip, which
at all times should rightly be barred,,
must be especially,, so. during the
course of a short first call.

The Hnlrs in a Head.
It is interesting to others than sta
tistical to know that the hairs of
our head are numbered. Certain
scientific men have laboriously cal
culated the. number of hairs on a
square inch of beads of different
colors, and by estimating the total
area covered, have arrived at ag
gregate numbers, which miy be
taken as fairly correct. To show the
well-intentioned accuracy of these
calculations, a head of fair hair con
sists of 143,000 hairs. Dark hair is
coarser and only totals 105,000,
while those who boast a poll of red,
must be content with a total of 29,
200. It is estimated that the hairs
on a "fair head" would support the
weight of 600 people.

God help us to get off the record

The world is tired of a theoretical
religion. It is ripe for a practical
Dr. John B. McFerrin, that grand
character, reared in the mountains
of Tennessee, with a character as
lofty and steadfast as the moun
tains among which he was reared,
was Gen. Bragg's chaplain upon the
battle-fields of Chattanooga. On a
chilly day in November he was
walking over the battle-field with
his Bible in his hand, reading to the
dying soldiers as they lay bleeding
upon the field. He walked up to a
wounded soldier and said: "Let
me read to you." The soldier re
plied : "O chaplain, I am so thirsty 1
I am so thirsty 1" If you were ever
wounded, you will know what it
meant. This practical old Chris
tian man dropped his Bible by. the
side of the wounded man, ran off to
the nearest water, carried it in his
hat, and, lifting up the head of the
bleeding soldier, pressed the water
to his iips. After he had drunk, the
chaplain said: "Now, brother, let
me read to you." The soldier said:
"O chaplain. I am so cold!" The
chaplain doffed his light overcoat
and put it about the wounded man,
tucked it under as tenderly as a
mother would tuck the bedclothlng
about her sleeping babe, and the
wounded soldier with tearful eyes
looked up into the face of the chap
lain and said: "Now, chapltin, if
there is anything in that book that
tells what makes a Rebel chaplain
treat a Yankee soldier this way,
read It to me." The world wants
practical illustrations of our Chris
tianity, and we ' will never reveal
Christ to this old world until we
mix our preaching and our prayers
with bread and meat and clothing
for the poor. And it is my object
to-night to brighten: the homes of
the poor, by turning this twelve
hundred millions of dollars, burned
up in liquor, into the homes of the
poor drunkard' families that it may
carry the necessities and comforts
of life to them. But, says a man,
money is money, and business is
business, and when you spend
money for liquor you are conduct
ing a great business of our country,
earring on an Important traffic, and
the money is not burned up.
Now, I am going to show you that
it is burned up. Keep uo with me.
I do not ask that you have a first
class mind to see it.. I can show it
to a fellow with half sense. Laugh
ter. I will show you where the
whisky money goes. Do you know
how much it costs to make a gallon
of liquor? Some of you ought to,
you have drunk enough of it. Ap
plause. You certainly know what
it costs to get it. It costs about
twenty cents a gallon to manufact
ure it. They U3ed to sell it in my
state for twenty-five cents a gallon.
Do you kuow what it sells for over
the saloon counter at ten cents a
drink? It sells for about four dol
lars a gallon, not taking into ac
count the licorice and tobacco and
other devilment put in it. Now let
us see wnere this tour dollars comes
from, and where it goes. If you
would see where it comes from.
stand at the door of a saloon and
watch the men come and go. The"
are the laboring men, the mechan
ics, the wage-earners, whose fami
lies need every cent of their wages.
JNow let us see where it goes.
Twenty cents of the $4 goes for ap
ples and corn and rye and other ma
terials out of which the stuff is
made and to pay the few men used
in th manufacture of the stuff.
This goes back into the legitimate
channels of trade. Five cents in
the dollar, then, you see, goes back
into legitimate trade. Where does
the rest of it go? One large bulk of
it goes to the United States Gov
ernment to pay the great army of
officers to look after this business
and pay the other expenses of run
ning this murderous and expensive
traffic. I believe the United States
Government ought to be supported
from the luxuries of the rich and not
by the bread and meat and clothing
of the families of the poor. Ap
plause. Another bulk of it goes in
to our big city corporations to pay
extra policemen to take care of
drunks and brawls and fights and to
quell the mobs created by this
traffic, and to lay the streets iu front
of the palaces of the rich. The poor
rascal out there who can not build a
front gate to the cottage of his home
is planking down his money upon
the counter of the saloon to pave
the streets of the great cities. Ap
plause. Another bulk of it goes in
to the hands of the brewers and dis
tillers of this country to make up
the millions of dollars which are
used by the great liquor organiza
tions of this country to buy our
politicians and lawmaking bodies,
to subsidize the American ballot, and
to dig down the very pillars of
American liberty. The meat and
bread and comforts of the poor
drunkard's cottage turned into the
corrupting fund of our country.
Great applause. Another bulk of
it goes into the hands of the thou
sands of diamond-studded gam
bles, who, with velvet hands and
elegantly clothed bodies have their
rooms in the saloon-buildings of this
country, who do not work, but gath
er up the money of the saloon crowd
and buy their clothes, their dia
monds and their fine horses, with
the bread and meat of the poor.
Applause. No wonder the middle
classes of this country are in such
a distressed condition to-day. Take
a family of four boys; let three of
them be hard-working boys, and one
an idler and a gambler; and if the
gambler comes in touch with the
money of the other three, he will
wreck the whole family. The poor,
hard-working fellows who frequent
the saloons, are supporting thee
idle gamblers. You see this money
is going out of the hands of the com
mon people; they are the material
out of which the prosperity of this
country is built. The world is like
a pie. The upper crust is brittle and
unreliable, and the under crust is
soft and smutty, but the goody is in
the middle. Applause and laugh
ter. I believe in the middle classes
of our country, and it is from thjs
class that the saloon is drawing its
