Itelic of a Battle Between Two Bull
battle was fought In the Kenai Peninsula,
Alaska, a few years ago. An Indian
was attracted to the spot by the
noise of the encounter, and on Hearing
the two antagonists, lie found
that one had broken its neck during!
the struggle and lay dead on tho |
ground, while the other, partly exhausted,
was making desperate efforts
to free his horns. After killing the
latter moose the Indian tried in every
way to separate the antlers, hut found
{this to bo impossible. The inter
locked antlers aro soon to be exhibited
in the collection of heads and
horns In the new Administration
Rulldlng oS the New York Zoological
Park. The larger pair of horns tias

thiu material in color to match the
coat suit is the smartest of all things
just now and here is a model that
can be utilized in that way or for the
entire gown as liked, and it will bo
equally serviceable put to both usoa.
I In the illustration it is made of rriesj
saline and the trimming is heavy lace
while the yoke and under-sleeves are
made of net. The lines are exceptionally
becoming and graceful and
the blouse is one of the prettiest possible
yet absolutely simple. It Is
closed invisibly at the back and it can
be finished as illustrated or with a
collar and without, the yoke, making
it half low. Treated in this way it
would be pretty with a little lace
tucker at the neck edge. All materials
that are thin enough to be tucken
are appropriate and the model will
find uses without number. The trimming
of buttons is a fashionable and
effective one and for the bands of the

or fancy material will be appropriate,
or they can be of plain material
either braided or embroidered.
The blouse is made with front and
backs, which are tucked on indicated
lines, the wide tucks over the shoulders
being held in place by means of
the trimming buttons. A shaped band
finishes the neck edge and when the
' yoke is used it is joined to it. The
sleeves are of moderate fullness,
tucked to match the blouse, and the
under sleeves are attached beneath
the trimming bands.

Neck and Sleeves.
When the season first opened we
were gravely told by the powers that
bo that the Dutch neck would call
for short sleeves and that the high
collar would consort strictly with long
sleeves. The rule has been treated
like most manifestoes of the kind.

sleeves and low neck and short

with the coat suit and hardly to be

is the material illustrated, but
the skirt will be found appropriate
for almost all seasonable ones, for the
thinner vill..,, such as foulard and

washable materials are made in such
style as well as the heavier linens,
poplins and wool fabrics. It can lie
finished as illustrated with a few buttons
or the tunic portion could be
irimmca wiui DaixniiR or with braid

A Word About .Julia Ward Howe.
lulia Ward Howe, author and reformer,
was born May 27, 1810, in a
naiKisome nome in uowimg ureen, i
New York City. \t the time of her '
birth that part of the city was tlie
most desirable residence quarter, being
both aristocratic ami fashionable..
Her father, Samuel Ward, was a merchant
and banker of New York. Four
of her ancestors were Governors of
Rhode Island, two of them being
Wards and two Greens. On both
paternal and maternal sides Mrs.
Howe sprung from fine old blood.
When in her Hfth year Julia Ward
lost her mother, a beautiful and aecomrilishefl
\vmii:iii .if t wnnt v.ol i?li t
Six little ones?of whom Julia was
the fourth ? were loft without a
mother's love and care. Of her fa- j
ther Mrs. Ward has this to say: "He
was a majestic person, of somewhat
severe aspect and reserved manners,
but with " vein of true geniality and
benevolence of heart. His groat gravity
and tlio absence of a mother naturally
subdued the tone of the household;
and, though a greatly cherished
set of children, we were not a
merry one."
Although as a child .Tulia Ward
showed remarkable aptitude in her
studies, being advanced to classes
comorised of nlrlx Iwien Imp own n
she was still ;i merry, playful child
at heart, and when, on hor ninth
birthday, her dolls were taken awnv
from her and slie was told in a serious
tone by her aunt that "Mies Ward
was too old to play with dolls any
longer," the separation from her playthings
almost broke her heart, and
many nights she wept herself to sleep
on her pillow, mourning for hor
pretty toys that had been so ruthless, j
ly denied her.
ller rather provided the finest1
tutors for his children, and the Ward
homo became the centre of a distin- '
guished class of people, artists, writers
and musicians gathering there at |
regular intervals to enjoy the gra- j
clous hospitality of their host and tliol
society of his brilliant sons and !
daughters, of whom Julia was the i

Queen (joes Shopping.
A few days after my arrival at
Milan, while strolling one afternoon
on the Galleria Vittorio Enianuele,
that favorite Milanese and cosmopoli
tan resort, I passed a glove shop, and
remembered that I had left my gloves
in the railway carriage. I thought)
1 might as well buy a new pair, and
entered the shop.
A customer had gone in before me,
a lady, young, tall and slender, quietly
hut elegantly dressed in a plain,
dark traveling frock. Through the
long, blue motor veil that closely
shrouded her face I could dimly see
her large, dark eyes and masses of
black hair. The face appeared to be
refined and pretty. She was leaning
over the counter and trying on gloves
which a young shop assistant handed
to her.
"They are too large," she said,
"That is because the signora has so
small a hand," replied the young assistant
She smiled and did not ansyer. An
elderly lady who was with her gave
the youth an indignant and scandalized
glance. After patiently allowing
the measure of her hand to be
taken, open and closed?it was indeed
a very small one?she found two
pairs of gloves that suited her, paid
for them and turned to go.
Just then the owner of the shop
returned. Ho looked at the lady,
gave a bewildered start, and, as soon
as she was gone, shouted to his assistant.:
"Have you the least Idea whom you
have been s mm;?"
