THE COLUMBIA n.ERAL,iJ: FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1S!S.
NOT FOR MB.
(Inrlannc Farninghnm )
Tile.ofnps I cannot count a host
About my path I see;
Yet some things that I wish for most
Are not for me.
chilli I, thou, sih away my days
In fretful discontent ?
'ay , ru t resigned, in happy prai.'e
Shall they bo spent.
Youth's vivid hopes and thrilling
He spriiiBtide and its glee,
J! Is merry mount?, and rushing streams,
Are not for me.
J' lit I will lovo 1 lie quiet vales
A nd s-lnpes of sunny lands,
jEitto the duty that prevails
Will put my hands.
Wealth brings no treasures to my feet
For me to use and give;
J! tit sir and linht and flowers are sweet
To those who live.
.And fume and influence and power,
High service, noble deeds,
Are not for me ; yet I each hour
Can sow good seeds.
Jad while strong faith and love are
To (iod I leave the rest;
He chooses where his light shall shine,
And he knows best.
The Oonil of Happiness.
A woman who lias many sorrows
and heuvy burdens to bear, but who
was noted for her cheerful spirit,
once said in explanation :
"You know I have had no money.
I hud nothing to give but myself;
and so I. made the resolurion that I
would never sadden any one else
with my troubles. I have laughed
and told jokes when I. could have
wept. I have always smiled in the
face of every misfortune. I have
tried never to let any one go from my
presence without a happy word or a
bright thought to carry with them.
And happiness niMkes happiness. I
myself am happier than would
nave been had I sat down and be
aioaned my fate."
This gospel happiness isone which
rery one should lay to heart. riet
out with the invincible determina
tion that you will bear burdens and
notitnp ise them. Whether the sun
yhines or the rain fills, show a glad
face to your neighbor. If you must
lull in life's battle, you can at least
fall with a smile on your face.
Keep pushing; 'tis wiser
Than sitting aside
And dreaming and sighing,
A ml w ititing the tide.
In life's earnest battle,
They only prevail
Who daily ' march onward,
And never say fail.
With eyes ever open
And tongue that's not dumb,
A nd heart that to sorrow
Will never succumb;
You'll battle and compier,
Though thousands assail.
Wow strong and how mighty
Who never say fail?
Keep pushing and pushing,
And elbow your way,
Unheeding the envy
That seeks to betray.
All obstacles vanish, "
All enemies quail,
Before the strong-hearted
W ho never say fail
(n life's rosy morning,
In manhood's firm pride,
Let this bo your motto,
Your footsteps to guide,
In storm or in sunshine,
We'll onward and conquer,
And never say fail.
TIlB Tall'etll C'JHt.
Decidedly the most novel feature
of fashionable dress just at present
is the black satin or silk coat to
wear with any kind of skirt. It may
he a plain sailor made ailair, with
plain or fancy revers, or a dressy
little garment covered with corded
tucks set in at intervals and some
times cut bolero fashion in the back,
with round or square tabs in the
front. Other corded coats are cut in
ihe regulation manner, with a short
basque rounding from the front or
hi battlement squares, with revers
of corded satin.
The tatTeta silk coat with a loose
front and fitted back held in place
6y a belt which passes through the
neatn under the arm, is another va
riation of this new fashion which
will doubtless blossom out later on
ttnongthe ultra fashionable women.
The tatTeta coat is unlined, which
makes it less expensive and more
suitable, perhaps, than the satin to
wear with pique and linen skirts.
The checked wool gowns supple
mented with a satin coat, usually
uuvo a bodice to match the skirt.

Crape veils are worn with bonnets,
not with hats, hut in the country
bonnets and veils can he laid aside.
Straw hats, trimmed with crape and
worn with face veils, edged with a
band of crape, is considered better
Myle than a bonnet, excepting for
I'liiirch wear. Flowers and feathers
ure not suitable with crape or crape
tvimnied hats, ami are incongruous
enough to spoil the prettiest toilet.
For evening wear, all black g"wns
must be worn so long as one is in
mourning. All crape at first, then
lusterless black silk, trimmed heav
ilv with crape. For home wear a
noft, dull black wool goods is best
and it can be cut with low waist.
L'hitTon is used in mourning, and
makes charming waists. It can be
trimmed with dull jet passemen
terie, and is considered suitable to
wear with any dull black material
in the skirt.
Wearing sheer white linen cutis
and collar was atone time suppos
fd.like a white ruche in a crape bon
net, to denote a widow's mourning.
Now these cuffs and collars are worn
y any and everyone who finds them
becoming. Certainly they will re
lieve the dead black amazingly, and
are almost always becoming, for few
complexions can stand the test of
dead black, particularly when it is
a black wool collar directly against
the skin. These cutfs and collras
are easily laundered, so that a little
care must needs be execised in send
ing them to be "done up."
Too deep a black border on hand
kerchiefs, cards and writing paper
is an affectation. Home women use
visiting cards with so large a border
that scarcely any room is left for the
name, while their note paper looks
as though the Ink bottle had been
spilled over it. There is a fitness
in a small, black border, but any
exaggeration is in bad taste.
For the first six months of deep
mourning jewels are inappropriate,
and, indeed, until after the first year
colored stones look sadly out of
place. When the mourning is light
ened, then diamonds and pearls can
be worn, but theie should be no
overdoing of jewelry even then.
Waived Hair Is Fashionable.
When a woman has brought herself
to be quite content with hair brushed
smoothly back, no matter whether
it is becoming or not, then she en
joys an enviable state of mind. But
what woman do you know who is
willing to be minus crimps and curls
right now, when fashion is unrea
sonably demanding we shall wear
them. 1 say unreasonably, became
in warm weather the hottest sort of
iron is not enough to fix crimps to
stay for any length of time.
Hummer hairdressing is a problem.
The woman who has solved it best
this summer is the one who quickly
took up fashion's leaning toward the
old-fashioned "rats" and rolled her
hair back over them. The hair is
first waved over irons, and then put
back over the pompadour rolls, and
either coiled softly half-way up the
back of the head or braided and
then put up. The rats are made of
wire lightly covered with hair to
match one's own locks, and are so
very light that they cannot do any
harm to the hair or head. In fact,
they are rather helpful to the hair,
for they lift it from the head and it
does not become so damp from per
spiration. At the back the hair is
done hi largo waves just like the
front, and it is a handy and com
fortable fashion to wear a large
rounded shell-comb just under the
coil. Many women find even the
waved pompadour too K'verea style,
and, therefore, H tT little curls

Hair, either '''"tided or twisted, is

this may be said to be the most pop

Either a heavy or light suit of hair
looks well in this shape.

quaint effect about one's hairdress

sides and look demure is the fortu

season than ever before. The Ameri

The SfW Ilnsque.
The new busques are graceful, pro
vided one has a tall slender flgu' e.
There are any number of pretty fan
cies in belting them, the now fa
vorite one seeming to be that of wide
ribbon folded down into pleats
about the waist and made into
an artistic bow or rosette with long
ends at the side I am inclined to
think that as the fall season advan
ces the various basque styles will
gain in favor, for in silk and woolen
stuffs very pretty results can be ob
tained by skirting the bodices. The
full bodices of soft materials, of
course, have full skirts. In the can
vas cloths and other fabrics that
compose whole suits, the basque is
smooth over the hips, often com
posed of rounded silk-lined tabs.
The Sewing Corner.
Two or three shelves twelve to
fourteen inches deep, and as long as
scace will permit, am put upon the
wad, the lower one being about four
feet from the floor. At one end, there
are attached to the side wall by
means of cleats, at the other, they

The Hemstitched Handkerchief.
One of the most sensible fashions
is the return of the hemstitched
handkerchief. There Is nothing so
distressing as the ragged ertires of
scalloped handkerchiefs. All of this
season's mouchoirs have hem
stitched edges. The inner border of
embroidery can be as elaborate and
expensive as desired, but the wel
come hem, with its accompaniment
of open work carefully done by band,
is the only correct handkerchief for
the woman of fashion.
The Model Sickroom.
In a model sickroom described by
a medical man there are two narrow
beds of equal height on easy rolling
casters, having hair mattresses, low
headboards and absolutely free from
all abominations in the way of can
opies. The patient may thus have a
fresh bed for the night and another
for the day. In the morning the
freshly made bed, covered with one
sheet, can be trundled up to the bed
which has been occupied during the
night, and the patient can be easily
slid on the same level on to a fresh
bed. The mattress and bedding of
the bed vacated can be rolled up,
quietly taken into an adjourning
room, where, with open windows,
thev can be shaken, thoroughly ven
tilated during the day and made
ready for the night.
Duties and Treasure.
One who has many treasures has
many duties, and one who has many
duties has many treasures, a"d if
our duties drive us and are more
than we can do it is that our hands
are overfull of treasures, and we
must let some slip. Ho we are blest

Direction for Renovating the Itath-tuh.
Among the crosses many house
wives have to annoy them is a bath
tub of uninviting appearance iti a
room that otherwise looks fresh and
clean after renovating. The tar
nished surface may refuse to become
bright, no matter what cleaning ma
terials are employed. The Htandard
Designer tells how you may remedy
this and, by being your own work
man, may, at a trifling expense,
make the tub quite desiraole.
Procure a small can of common
paint of any light color desired, a
can of enamel paint of the same color
and a good bizeJ brush. Cut eight
or ten-inch pieces of yellow soap in
to nits ana put it over the nre to dis-
so've in a couple of quarts of water.
r ill the bathtub with very hot water,
and throw in a generous handful of
powdered borax ami the dissolved
soap. When the water becomes cool
enough to put the hands in it, scrub
the surface with a brush, letting the
water run off as the work is done.
Again partly fill the tub with hot
water and scrub it with the brush
and sand soap to make sure that all
greasy particles have been removed.
Then rinse it in cle-ir hot water and
thoroughly dry. Cover it with two
coatings of the common Daint, let
ting one thoroughly dry before put-
ling on tne second coat, i nen give
it several coats of the enamel paint.
This paint will dry more quickly
than. the other, and the bath tub will
no longer be an unsightly object.
C'tre must be used not to run very
not water into the bath until the
paint has hardened.
