Some of the newest capes are finished with a sailor collar ending in pointed ro vers down the front. Atpuco. and mohair fabrics are being made into very smart toilets both for house and street wear. Marie Antoinette fichus will rival the wall circle capes aud pelerines worn as Soy wraps with autumn costumes. Tweeds in varied qualities and new tyllsh color schemes will occupy a prom- liient-placo among autumn dress goods. There will be a great voruo tho coming Tall and winter seasons for reppod silks, :ordcd silk and wool and all wool mate rials. Evening silks for next season have ex quisitely tinted dresden patterns on orcam, .rr.auve, blue, ecru and other light colored grounds. It is rumored that Parisians are likely to make considerable change in the size of sleeves by tho time that heavy wraps be come necessary. Velvet blouses in black, brown and dark green, in reseda, moss and laurtil shades, will be eveu more fashionable than they were last spring. Medium and lightweight crepons, plain and with colored stripes and dots, will re main in fashionable favor, but they will not reach tho universal popularity they enjoyed this summer. Velvet ribbons will be used for dress trimmings this fall. Piece velvet, plain and fancy, will be in active domand for gowns, redingotes and blouse and other fuuey waists. New York Post.

Lawyers Do Not Want Their Names Iden tified With the Documents. That it takes a smart man to draw a will is an adage the respect for which in the legal fraternity is evidenced by the fact that few lawyers want to furnish visible evidence of their piixt in draw ing np wills. It is perfectly easy lor a man to hira a lawyer to draft his testa ment, of conrae, no matter how compli cated its provisions may he. It is quite another thing to get tho lawyer to wit ness it. Ho will not even allow clerks in his office to do so except perhaps where the client ij an old or regular one. Ee wants him to go elsewhere to get thenecessary attestations. Thero aro exceptions to this unwritten rule, it is true, but it is pretty generally observed. "Lawyers will not so admit it," said one of them, "hut the true reason is they don't caro to be identified with tho instrument. It is about, as diUioul; an undertaking as a lawyer can face to draw np a will whero tho bequests are surrounded with conditions that will close up al! loopholes to a contest. Most testators kmw how tlioy want to dis pose of their estates, but it is exceed: ug ly hard to express their wishes lu a way that will leavo no doubt when subse quently disappointed heirs call it into question. The books teem with instances of tho inability of smart men, some ol them distinguished lawyers, to make a will that will staud under a stiff light. Lawyers naturally dou't want to bo as sociated with a document that may bo pronounced bad, and' so they are unwill ing to sign as witnesses or to let their employees do it. I supposo it to some ex tent argues a lack of conlideuce in their work. Anyhow the precaution is of lit tle nse, for invariably the lawyer who drew it is disclosed in any litigation over a will." Chicago Tribune. One on tlio Prince. The Prince of Wales once visited a seaside town for tho purpose of laying the foundation stone of the now harbor. The prince, in company with Lord Dufferin, drovo through tho town pre ceded by the mayor in his official robes. An old fishwife, failing to distinguish H. K. H. among the other gentlemen, exclaimed : "I wonder which is the prince!" and then cried out, at the top of her voice, "Long live the prince!" Instantly tho prince turned and bowed. "Is that him?" she inquired, with a disappointed air. "Of course it is," answered a neigh bor. "Well, well," sho replied. "That's regular knockdown! Well, if our mayor dou't beat him all to lits iu dress!" Liverpool Mercury. A Deaconsfield Anecdote.

TO BE A MODEL. Bhe Wanted to I,ave Housekeeping Sard Pose For Pictures. Not very long ago, while a prominent artist was busy at his easel, the brass kipx'ker rapped three times, and rising he opened the door. "Who is it?" he said, not very pleased at the interruption. "Do you want a model?" was tho re sponse. He looked at her with the rapid glanco of the man who knows tlis mean ing of form and color and tho valuo of nvery feature. Apparently thejo was uothing to recommend ba r. The face was not beautiful, the skill and features were coarse, there was no pomegranate ou tiio lips, iu roie petal on cheek nor i.iiell limn in the r.ir. The hair was a dusty, yellow gray, the eyes dull and h avy, tiie nion.h and jaw thick and hard. All of this detail ho saw as she passed tiiron,;ii tho door uninvited. "What arc your recommendations?" ho asked her half sneermgly. "I have a good figure," sho answered promptly "Are you a professional model?" was the next query. "I have never p-sscd tit all, "she re plied. "I'm a housi maid. I read some thing in tho paper about tlie lota of money the models made, aud I thought I'd like it better ihau being out at serv ice. ' ' Tho artist looked at tho young Irish woman u moment, and glancing about the ro.iin, wondering what to say 'o her, his eyes fell upon his half c1 d model seaied upon ihostaud. "M ss B.," ho said, "will you tell this yonrg vonr.m about the ln'o? She wants to be a model. " Miss IX, with an easy, natural move ment, threw the end of her garnet vel vet toga across her shoulders and gave the visitor such a lengthy description of the trials, hardships aud troubles of a model's life in tho studios that when sho advised tho artistically inclined housemaid "to go back to making beds and scrubbing and waxing floors" the latter concluded sho had better "bear the ills she knew than liy to those she knew not of" and took her departure aa abruptly as sho had come.
