The stntT that heroes are mado of!
is a mixture, of fortitude, resolution!,'
atd gumption. Tlxy are all com
mon neiiH niHterl ils, which nvery
man and woman oiulit to cultivate
and cherish, not only becausn they
are so indispeneahle in a crisis, but
fcecauso they are so exceed inly
handy for everyday use. Moi-t of us
,are familiar with fear, and know
what sinking of the heart mehtis and
how it feeln wen the knees knock
together. Those sensations are
mere physical symptoms that indi
cate not the absence of courage, but
the occasion for it. It is the habit
of looking' out Intelligently over a
linking heart, and of compelling a
pair of shaking legs to stand still or
carry you forward, that develops tho
fortitude which is so useful in all
human concerns and so fssential to
personal comfort. W oiuht all of
us to have at least the courage of
Bur particular calling. Very few of
us will ever be under fire, or on a
sinking ship, or will stand in the
tenth-story window of a burning
building, or will m?et a m id dog. or
even have to stop a runaway horse.
Those adventures are not a pirt of
everyday life. H it very many of us

anxieties of sickness, or In the .facrj
of tiscal embarrassments. The
spirit that meets the ordinary
vicissl. odes of life with tranquility,
and energy ought to tind its strength
equttl to calamity U' if that should
come. Life is pretty troublesome
anyway. We have to live in more
or less peril. VVe cannot atf rd to
live also in fe-ir. The folks who
have the host of it are those who
have trained themselves to realize
that their bodies are something they
live in, that their belongings are an
environment, and that both are
liable to damage from without, but
that they themselves are spiritual
creatures who c.in't he hurt unless
they consent to it, and who are mas

With summer and sun behind you,
With winter and shade before,
You crowd in your reual splendor
Through the autumn's closing door.
White as the snow that is coming,
Red as the rose that Is gone,
(told as the heart of the li les,
l'lnk as the Hush of the dawn,
Confident, winsome, stately,
You thronn in the wane or the year,
TroopinK an army with banners
When the leilless woods are sere.
Sweet is your breath as of spices
From a far sea island blown,
Chaste your robes as of vestals
Trimming their lamps alone.
Strong are your hearts, and sturdy
The life that in root and stem
Smoulders and kIows till it sparkles
In eaeh llowery diadem.
Nothum of bloom and odor
Have votir peerless legions lost,
Marckiinii in fervid beauty
To challenge the death white frost.
So to the eve of sorrow
Ye bring a llicker of lnrht;
The cheek that was wan with illness
Smiles at, your faces bright,
The children laugh in greeting,
And the dear old people say,
"Here are the selfsame darlings
We loved In our own young dav."
As summer and sun behind you,
Winter and shade before,
You crowd in regal splendor
Through autumn's closing door.

of colored glass beads have found
many admirers, and I notice that
they are being worn with day as well
as evening gowns. The little thin
gold "buby chains" with a locket or
miniature pendant are taken out
from among the keepsakes or sup
plied by the jewelers. London fash
ion writers tell us that bracelets are
again worn, and that an English
woman feels that her evening toilet
is incomplete without a pair of hand
some bracelets. But bracelets at
their best are unbecoming things
when worn at the wrist, and the
American woman is sensible enough
to follow no fashlou but the prettiest.
The wearing of a black velvet baud
held by a jeweled clasp and worn
half way between the elbow and
shoulder is a fetching fashion and
one much followed. And another
quaint style is the narrow black vel
vet ibbon about the neck, from
which hangs a turquoise-set or blue
enameled locket. The black ve'vet

whiter. Velvet straps-'-dver the

Ho .Tiuch embroidery is heinfij-'used
that one no longer has difficulty in
finding a shop that will undertake
toexreuteit for one. Besides this,
there are pieces ready made that can
be applied and not even ' the most
skilled detect that the embroidery
was not put stitch for stich right in
the goods. Plain cloth gowns with
waistcoats covered entirely with em
broidery are smart and dresy.
White broadcloth with embroidery
done in gold and blue is especially
popular in the waistcoat line.-
Pale primrose and patiary-yellow
are among the fashionable tints in
winter evening toilets, and when
combined with green velvet and
narrow sable bands the etlect is most
artistic. .The new pink and wild-rose
shadeo are very pretry and among
the odd dyes is a striking shade of
opalescent orange. All tints of white
will be in vogue from cream and
ivory to pure snow and lily white,
and all shades of helliotrope from the
deepest royal purple to the faintest
pinkish mauve called orchlu.
lu dressy toilets all the shades of
violet and helii itrope are conspicu
ous. Purple looks particularly rich
in velvet, and velvet is the winter
fabric, for entire gowns, or only as a

Tucks are oduiv and lavishly used.
Fiue ones are run in the heaviest of
cloths and give a corded effect. In
evening dresses one finds tnem run
in the thinnest materials. A white
chiffon is run with lucks an inch
and a half wide, running diagonally
and meeting just at the middle of
the front width in a point. The bod

The Choice of Color.
The importance of color is something-recognized
by too few women,
and now that yellow is one of the
leading models, we shall find many
wearing it who should most careful
ly avoid it, for it U singularly unbe
coming to those it does not suit, de
veloping the worse shades in the
face. Nevertheless yellow tulle
bows, lisse jabots, yellow artificial
flowers, and yellow trimmings to
hats and toques are flooding the mar
ket. No one can all their lire through
be faithful to any particular slude;
green is in later life becoming to
those who could not wear it in their
vouth, while pinks and light blues,
so suitable to a young face, are any
thing but advisable as the years go
on. Peach is a faithful color that
can be worn in middle life almost as
well as by a girl in her teens. Older
women are apt to fall bck upon
black with a far too faithful persist
ence; it always wants softening to
wards the face, and the introduction
of a bright color renders it mostly
becoming. For the moment black
would seem to be the grouudwork
for nearly all colors in material and
The other day, in a Sunday-school
class of boys between the ages of six
and ten, a question was asked as to
how Ood punished Adam for dis
obeying him. There was silence for
a moment or so ; and then one bright
boy said: "Please, sir, God took
away one of his ribs, and gave him
a wife." Saturday Evening Post.
Music In the Home.
In Japan there are two things
which are taught to all the little
girls. One is how to place a flower
or a branch of leaves in a vase, and
I the other is how to play on a guitar.
I If you go into a Japanese home, you
hear a tinkle rrm almost every
room. You get use to this soft, light
heat of music as you do to the gur
gle of a brook or the di ip of a foun
tain. There seems to b no Japan
ese house without l: flower vase,
its picture on the wall and its guitar.
The Japanese are so fond of music
that they scarcely take a meal with
out the narp or guitar. The table
music is either furnished by a
daughter o' the family or Dy a "sing
ing gin" hired from outside, of
whom there is a large class in Japan.
The "singing girl" will come on her
little wooden clos, bringing her
guitar, and with the jewelled hair
pin stuck in her glossy, black hair,
and her gay -ash tied in big bows at
the back, she looks exactly as you
see her on Jip:nes fans. Whili
the family eats rice and beans and
raw flsh she will iug them a song of
a flowering cherry tree or a red
peony or chant them a ballad of the
golden dragon, sounding the guitar
all the while. 1 am sorrv to say she
sings "through her nose" and in a
very high key. Hometimes a small
drum is used, and now and then the
singer accents her song with a dull,
soft boom, boom, boom. N. Y. Mail

"The best of all baths is th tepid
bath," sava Ruth Aslimore in the
November Lidies Home Journal.
"VVe hear wonderful stories of Eng
lish girls breaking the ice to jump
into their baths. I have known a
great many English girl- with beau
tiful complexions who took their
baths as regularly as they did any
one of their meals, and their appe
tites were unusually good. Every
one of thein took a tepid soap bath,
and if she had no means of having a
shower she gave one to herself oy
pouring water over all p irts of her
body, changing the temperature of
this shower so that from tepid it be
came almost cool, but never icy cold.
Having chosen your bath you must
remember that a good rubbing is a
part of it. The bath that leaves you
weakened ia useless indeed, dang
erous whereas the bath that
strengthens you, and makes you feel
full of life and vitality, is the one
you need. All the creams that were
ever made, all the powders that
were ever ground up, and all the
liquid beautitters that ever existed
us untruths, will not do one thous
andth as much toward making a
girl's complexion good as the proper
observance of the bath and the regu
lar taking of exercise."
"Well," said the old farmer, "the
cotton is kilt, the coi n is beat dwn,
the taters is done rotted, an' the
house is blowed awy; but, thank
Ood ! the aherilf hain't got nothin'
to levy on !"
The night was warm and the porch was
And the soft wind wafted the music's
And a youth and a maid sat side by
'Neath the witching light of the sum
Said the youth : "There's a maiden I
She's as fair as the daybreak, and
pure as gold,
With a voice as soft as a cooing dove,
And a mouth like a bud with one leaf
The gleam of her eyes makes the star
And she's witty and clever, well read
The maid's cheek flushed at this glow
And "I love you, too," she said.

IN Til K BROODING I S 1)1 AX SUMMER.
In the brooding Indian summer and the
still November days,
There's the faintest hint of pathos
'mongst the winding rural wavs;
Falling leaves are like the goiug of the
hopes we one.e held near,
nd the runnel's song falls lonely as a
. dirge upon the ear :
Criekets tiny postmen whistling on
the routes o er wnicn tny go
Seem to brinii a tender message from
the friends we used to know;
Aud we hear old v dees talkiug, see old
faces through the haze,
In the brooding tudiau summer and the
still November days.
Where persimmms dng'e tempting
little nuggets as of gold
Ami the sumac glows in scarlet like a
bloody flag unroll'd,
Now and then the mellowed tinklings
of a cowbell wander by
On the air that is scarce stronger than a
dre&imng seraph's sigh;
There is something in the silence sweet
er than the sweetest rhymes
For the Still small Voice seems nearer,
clearer than at other times.
And we pause, balf-way expecting
heaveu's music through the haze,
In the hrooling Indian summer and the
still November days!
