Side try side with the sheer and delicate summer fab rics are the woolen goods for dresses, and there axe quite as many of one kind purchased as of the other, for there are many ladies who would rather suffer agonies in warm woolen dresses than to appear in ' the street wearing cotton gowns, no matter how expensive or or- If i-mH A I iu-s 9k WOOL GOWNS FOR SrMIIER. nate. Light silks have their friends and adherents, but thero is still a large con tingent and they are among the most refined people who will not go out fcr business or promenade unless wearing some sort of a woolen dress, and that made in a plain and unobtrusive style. For them there are the wide changeable armure.s the covert suitings, the tricots, the fine plain end striped cheviots, tho studied simplicity. of the English suit ings, the hopsaclrs and silk and wool mixtures and the long list of other goods of similar texture. Tho most stylish of theso suits are made with vest fronts of white or light Bilk draped in loosely, r the regular vest, with a white shirt and collar and black tie. There i3 a new favorite in a blazer wherein the coat is shaped much like a gentleman's cutaway, and this naturally calls nay, cries out for a vest and collar as masculine as possible. The skirt3 to these suits should be of a studied simplicity. Ono of the neatest and prettiest of these woolen summer suits is a double A navy blue serge cut with a double skirt, which comes to a blunt point in front. The top and bottom skirt have deep bands of blue and gray novelty silk. The waist is cut in Eton shape and has a flat collar and wide revers of navy blue velvet and a vest of white crepe de chine. The overskirt is here to stay. There are two distinct styles, one or mem aeep and lifted on each side in heavy plaits, tka other short and rather flaring, be ing cut in a half circle. The peplum overskirt is short and folded so that there is a hollow point and a fluted short plait. It is neither pretty nor graceful. The pannier overskirt is seen very often, and eo is the pointed shawl draped overskirt. I have seen three or four regular tablier draped overskirts, with kilted underskirts. Ono very nice overskirt costume was of gray and white striped cheviot, the underskirt quite plain, and the overskirt long and draped tip on each side in such a way as to let the folds fall heavily and at the same time form apron plaits across the front It hung loose in the back in plaits. I nearly forgot to mention that this skirt was trimmed with flat lace inser tion on the overskirt, crossing in front where the front formed a point. The sleeves were also trimmed with lace in bands, and the wide bretelles had bands crossed on the points. There was a drapery of ciel blue surah around tho waist as belt, another on the shoulders, and the collar and cuff's were also formed of draped blue surah. The whole dress was remarkably light and pretty. I would like to give a day to it and name and describe fll the crepons. It could not bo done in less time, and I do not believe there is any woman who has not at least one crepon dress, if not Jm I if. SXTHMER MILLINERY. two or three of different styles. The liking for the soft and statuesque effect of crepon has resulted in the abolition of starch from the laundry as regards women's undergarments. No skirt is starched now. If skirts are no longer made stiff, what shall we say of the hats? They have absorbed all the stiffening mate rial there is, for every bow, every flow er and every feather is stuck out or up as stiff as possible to get them. A limp bow or a drooping flower is no longer etylish. Witness one big chip of silvery straw with a pyramid of forgetmenots and upstanding bows, or another with a rose spray looking as if from a street peddler's hands, 'and with bows like strips of "corrugated iron, or perhaps a sailor hat with loops of ribbon standing up half a foot, or a turban with a bunch of roses all as stiff as wires can make them, or, last of all, a saucer hat with great square bows and alert donkey ears of jet. Why can't there be a little grace in style? Olive Habpeb. WHEN THE GOOSE HONKS HIGH.

Bat the Kind of Whisker That Ho One Could Flirt With. A broad shouldered man, fashionably dressed, came into the lobby of an up town hotel on Saturday evening. lie looked like an athlete. His step was springy, and his face was ruddy with health. He was just the sort of man you would steer clear of in a fight. Still it was none of these qualities that attracted the attention of every person in the lobby. He wore a peculiar whisker. Hanging from bis chin was a long blond wisp of hair, such as -stage farmers and some sure enough ones wear. It was a whisker that waved briskly in every pass ing wind. It was so clearly cut of place on this man cf the world's face that a young fellow, bolder ttan the rest, engaged its owner in conversation and after a time asked him about it: "That's a peculiar whisker 'you wear there," paid the young man insinuatingly. "Yes," assented the other. "That the style where you came from?" "No." "Then, if the question is proper, I should like to know why you wear it?" The broad shouldered man smiled a bit flud octitl. "I'll tell you wky. I grew tUat whisker for the sole and only purpose of getting fresh young men to talk about it and thereby giving me an opportunity to get even with them." The young man shivered apprehensively. "Don't be afraid," said the other. "I was not alluding. The fact is, I was riding on the railroad rhilo ago, and there was a man in the sea- in front of me who had a wisp of hair on his chin. It was similar to this in all respects, save that it was gray, for he was an old man. There was a party of fresh young collegians in the same car, and when they saw the old man's whisker they began to make game of it. One lan tern jawed youth amused himself and his companions by reaching over, taking hold of the whisker and saying, 'Xa-a-a-a,' like a billygoat. He kept that up for 40 miles, greatly to the old man's discomfort. Right then and there I resolved to grow a similar whisker. I did it, and I'm looking for some body to shake that appendage and say, Xa-a-a-a.' When that somebody does those things, there is going to be trouble, and after that I'm going to shave it off. I have noticed, however, that it makes a heap of difference whose chin the billygoat whis ker is on." Buffalo Express. The Wrong Person. An acquaintance said to me the other day: "My husband has been worrying a great deal about business of late and has had several mysterious meetings in the parlor with closed doors. "Last night he was particularly nervous and kept saying during dinner: " 'I shall be glad when 7 o'clock comes, for I expect a m ost i m portant party th en. I think he can make everything all right!' "Just about then the girl came in and said that she had shown a gentleman into the parlor. " 'That's he,' said my husband, jumping up. 'Now I must go in and introduce my self. I've never met him.' " 'Well, take your coffee first,' I cried, but he. wouldn't. "He dashed down stairs, and I followed Mm unseen, for I was anxious too. "I listened in the back parlor, and this is what I heard: " 'Mr. ,' in my husband's voice. " 'Xo, sir,' was the stranger's reply. " 'Well, at least you come from him?' was the question in an agitated tone. " 'Well, no,' was the response. 'I called to eee if you had any old clothes you'd like to sell.' "I didn't wait for the outbreak, but fled up stairs." New York Recorder. Defined. A servant girl who was employed in a family in which there were several children became very much alf-med when one of them fell ill with scarlet fever. She was for leaving at once. "You need not be afraid, Hetty," said her mistress. "We have isolated the little boy, and you need not go near him. Moreover, adult rarely take the disease." An hour or two later Hetty was over heard saying to a fellow servant: "Julia, whot does 'isolated' mean?" "I don't exactly know," replied the bril liant Julia, "but I guess it means that they have put him on ice." "That must be it. And what ia an adult?'" "I don't exactly know that either, but I guess it means a fcirl who works out." Youth's Companion. Well Answered, Dr. Reid. the celebrated medical writer, ras requested by a lady of literary emi nence to call at her house. "Be sure you recollect the address," she said as she quitted the room, "No. 1 Ches terfield street."

Congress gaiters, the old time style, with the elastic at the sides of the an kles, are said to be coming in fashion again. While black hosiery is in general de mand, there is a steady call for colors, and many ladies select them to matcl all of their dresses. "Street costumes show the practiced hand of a tailor and are for the most part quite as plain as the most conserva tive taste could desire. The usual high novelties in the glove line come out with the utmost regular ity, but are rarely seen on the hands of ladies of conservative tastes. Little girls' dresses have sleeves made up of a series of ruffles. This style is used upon almost all materials and with any model that may be fancied. Skirts have changed but little since the first spring models came oat. They still clear the ground and are under no circumstances to be made to touch. Some of the capes are very full, with fluffy collars and in some cases the con spicuous and cumbersome bow that seems to have become a fad with women who follow the fashions. One of the new wrap3 is a sleeveless jacket with a cape. This is exceedingly convenient, as it slips on and off with very little effort, a point not to be over looked iu these days of puffy sleeves. Jackets are shorter than heretofore, with less fullness in the skirts. A great deal of angularity is observable in trimmings- Braids are put on with square corners pressed fiat, long points, angles and cross sections. A simple and stylish house dress is made of olive green wool challis. The skirt is in bell shape, with three tiny rufiles of olive silk just above the hem. The waist is close fitting, with a shirred vest aud full puffed sleeves of silk. A folded girdle and green bow finish this costume. -New York Ledger.

If we were asked the reason why " "Viavi " performs such wonderful cures, we would be honest, and say, "We don't know."

It is no more natural for bodies to gravitate toward the center of the earth tbu it is for "Viavi" to cure the dir eases peculiar to women.
