THE COLUMBIA IIERALD: fltlDAY, MAT 'J7, 18!)8.
OMAN'S EPHRTMENT. j j itr dnmtlij orr$pattbenk. j
Tlie summer rose the sun lia.s Unshed
With crimson Klory, irniv be sweet
Tii sweeter when its leaves are crushed
Beneath the wind's and temptest'a
The rose that waves upon its tree,
In life, sheds perfume all around
More sweet the perfume tloats to me
Of roses trampled on the ground.
The waving rose, with every breath
.Hrents, carelessly the summer air
The wounded rose bleeds forth in death
A sweetness far more rich and rare.
It is a truth beyond our ken
And yet a truth that all may read
It is with roses as vith men,
The Bweetent hearts are those that
The (lower which Hethlehem saw
Out of a heart all full of grace,
tiave never forth its full perfume
Until the cross became its vase.
Curnful Home Training.
The trnd of the home training
shows itself e:irly in the child's life
and often by single small acts it is
r.iade evident that the principles of
courtesy are inculcated, says an ex
change. The expression of thought
fulness cn the part of a young mem
ber of the family for the comfort of
a guest always is a pleasant sight
and does more honor to the mother
than does costly furnishing.
Into a modest little home of four
rooms, where the monthly income
is so small that there is nothing for
luxuries, and where the mother's
days are so busy that there is no
time for social ' amenities, a visitor
entered on'a".Warm midsummer
afternoon.- She had been seated
only a few nutrients when the little
daughter of five summers came in
-with a pitcher of water drawn at a
neighboring well and with a glass
robbed until it shone, and olfered a
drink to the lady with the grace
which sometimes is wanting in the
ehild of the mansion. There had
been no opportunity for a word
from the mother, and the stranger
lecogniz-id the little courtesy as the
result of careful home training.
SPUING CLEAN I NO.
Yes, clean yer house, an' clean yershed,
An' clean yer barn in ev'ry part;
But brush the cobwebs from yer head,
An' sweep the snowbanks from yer
Ves, w'en spring clean in' comes aroun'
Hring forth the duster an' the broom,
But take yer fogy notions dowu,
An' sweep yer dusty soul of gloom.
ACCKSSOitlKS OF DKKSS.

Xeeks have never been more be
eotamingly dressed than at present.
After much persuasion and many
failures, the American woman has
learned what her Parisian sister
knew long ago that the most beau
tiful of millinery fell short in be
eoiuingness if the neck was not
This season has developed a per
fect craze for plain silk bodices
vnade ornate by the simple addition
of a stock built up of some soft
fabric and finished in front with
mart pleated bow or deep jabot of
gauze or lace.
The pleated scarf of chiffon or
mousseline de soie with trimmings
of lace is perhaps the one that is
liked best. The jabot Is a popular
shape for wear with bodices that
present a vest effect, but tlie scarf
style is newer, or seems so after its
long absence, while the jabot has
always been with us In one form or
The bolero, after quite an indica
tion of vanisiiing, appears in most
attractive form for wear with airy
frocks. There is. one made of
chenille openwork, of course
strung witli pearls or jet or colored
"jewels," and then there is the
bolero made of velvet or satin rib
bon latticed and each crostdng or
uameuted with a small embroidered
design iu bright colors of jeweled or
spaugled. These little Jackets, I
am told by leading modistes, will
bave a great vogue this summer,
worn over thin organdies or sumtner
silks. Of course, they are invariably
worn over blouses that pouch con
siderably. Sometimes the bolero is
a part of the costume. For example,
a recently finished canvas gown of
blue, lined with tan-colored silk,
has a bolero that is cut square iu
front and just in the back is cut up
into a moderate point. Inch-wide
blue velvet ribbou, edged with nar
row tan silk cords, goes up tlie fronts
and over the shoulders and Is form
ed into a design with loops just at
the top of the point. The blouse is
of white silk, striped with blue and
figured with tan. The sleeves are
uly slightly fulled at the top, and
at the wrist are very fluffy frills of
tan-colored chiffon. The bolero is
now spoken of as the sleeveless
jacket, which is, after all, a more
correct name for it.
In gowns there is har.dly a greater
craze than for the sleeveless jacket,
and indeed it is a pretty and jaunty
style. In ducks, linens and piques
one sees many of them, and worn
with bright shirtwaists, they are at
once comfortable and dressy. Ex.
Siule Cloves In Cadet ray.
Very smart are the new suede
leather gloves of cadet gray, the
backs marked with stitchlug as fol
lows: The three heavy lines which
are supposed to mark the back or
the hand look slender and heavily
barred in cadet gray silk. Each of
these marks is outlined with one
row of black stitching and one of
white. If you have little money to
devote to gloves lay in a pair of
cadet gray, soft gauts-de suede, for
street wear and one pair of palest
lemon-colored glace kid gloves for
calling, receptions or evening use.
This is the best selection to make
just now, as each choice is the most
fashionable for the occasions in
dicated. White, pearl and other
light-colored gloves are not so up-to-
date as the lemon-colored glove for
dress occasions, nor can the browns
or ruddy tans hold their own in
comparison with cadet gray for
general wear. A light colored suede
glove soils immediately, while the
glace kid keeps its freshness.
The Shirt Waist.
For shirt waists the linens in
natural shades, with decided cords
in bright colors, make up very
stylishly. As a rule, the brownish
linen shades are too lacking in color
to be becoming, but the bright cords
redeem them, and the gray ties of
the season make it possible to wear
the palest of shirt waists, for they
are quite capable of supplying ail
tlie color that one needs.
Large squares in lavender and
white, green and white, red and
white, anu yellow and white will be
much worn for morning gowns, as
well as shirt waists.
A large white fleur de lis on
colored back-grounds is fashionable
in silk and organdies. It is certain
ly rather striking, but this is hardly
to be objected to in this season; Of
lursre patterns and gray colors., ,
Black grounds, with loose flowers
scattered over them, without con
ventional arrangement, make one of
the attractive styles in thin mate
rials. These trimmed with black
lace and colored ribbons make very
charming and serviceable summer
Bmall-checked ginghams in all
colors are finding favor equally with
the extreme squares for shirt waists.
Children's frocks in finely checked
ginghams are being made up by the
dozens, and as the small-checked
ginghams usually launder excellent
ly this is a very satisfactory move
on Fashion's part.
lied chambray, with white or
black embroidered designs, is a new
fancy. The black is richer in effect,
and is, therefore, the b'ist liked.
Batistes covered with loose floral
designs are very attractive.
Many waists have for a founda
tion a fitted bodice of silk or satin,
belted and without hip skirts, the
sleeves either small gigots or shirt
sleeves. Upon this the trimming is
arranged as simply or as elaborately
as one pleases, making a dressy
affair of it or a plain shirt effect, the
idea being that in this way even

great embonpoint cm wear a

WORK FOR WOMEN.
How They Mar Help and Comfort the

ment from shouldering a musket
and personally chastising the
haughty Don ,can do a lot more by
staying at home and keeping the
brave boys at the front supplied
with things to make their lot easier.
Women's societies on the al9rt for
a new idea might make up a tiny
book of recipes for the use of the
men. The soldiers will have to pre
pare their own food and most of
tnem are supplied with a large and
comprehensive ignorance about
everything relating to the culinary
art. I he defenders of their country
will be grateful to the good woman
who enlightens him as to whether
the potato or coffee or rice is dropped
into hot or cold water before boiling.
It is well to suggest that the pota
toes, and rice, etc., are washed be

Housewives, containing needles,
pins, thread, darning cotton, scis

combs, fine and coare, are always
useful; so are small muslin bags,
made to hold the rations of tea,
coffee, sugar, rice or meal.
.Although every corps has its
special surgeon, it is lust as well for
soldiers to be able to take care of
small scratches or wounds in case

This is really the most important
article of any list, because it may be
used to close the I'ps of a wound and
keep back a weakening flow of blood

other useful thing is a small bottle
