Tho old fashion of stockings and slippers to match the gown has been frlowly creeping back into favor. About four years ago it became ohli patory to wear satin slippers and hose of light shades with an evening dress, and since then colored footwear has In come fashionable with costumes of all descriptions. Silk stockings are nhllgatory on all occasions, so It Is said, hut let It be whispered that fine lisle thread are far less expensive, far more useful and far loss Injurious. In the evening fllk stockings should always he worn. Among the younger women In so ciety particularly It has for the last few years been th; fad to wear all 1 wNf eP winter lonp In tho Mrrot tho finest openwork Kill, hose utul hlt;h heeled Krem h slippers. This, besides beinic most ilanuerons for the health, always seems rather had style. If the color bo not too striklnR tho silpper for the house or reception should match the dress. As this year there are so many new and un usual tones fashlonablu it will be found almost Impossible to prorur "reaily made-' slippers of the rinht shade, hut the man rial ran penornlly he Matched in satin, and at any shoo store slippers can he made to order. For the ball j:nwn satin slippers rrlpn supreme, but the simple white slippers ornamented only with small lace or chiffon rosettes have been re placed by the elaborately beaded and embroidered slipper, whiih is a work of art in itself. Early Spring Model. The new nml early exhibits nf spriiij? and summer hats all show small turbans as tho proper thlnu. A particularly pretty ami coipiettish model is illustrated above. The hat is yellow straw, with trimming of black velvet nml a paradise aigrette shading fix. 111 yellow to white. Waterproof Gloves.

Tor veils there Is tho washable chif foil, which, from Its very washing qualities, will be known to stand a pood (llein hil'.i: without inlnrv Al that is necessary is a smart shake out before haiiL'iim it up to dry. For Summer Frocks. The rrae for soft, supple material! foi summer frocks, m.t only in cottonf and linens, but in silks, increases . Aiany new names are used for thf ' various morcoricd cottons. Silky ; cot 1 ons tire found in carious weights I mid a ;reat number of plain tints , and in a host of figured deslcrs. The ' liht. yi Hows and buffs are perhaps I the most fashionable. Some cottons j r scnible linht weight woolen Hoods. This is particularly true of the rotton voile and the checked coods. Hrowns are rnns'pii uons in this line of cotton, and also small checks of brown and I white, here are also cotton elamlnes I with embroidered borders. A rontso ! ly woven 1I1 op cream or erru, for In I stance, had a border in conventional deslL'ti of dark blue nnd black em btoidery. Purses and Wrist Bags. A natural evolution of purse and wrist bag is a purse with chain han dle, which Is a sort, of poeketbook ntul cirdense combined, with the poek etbook in the certer nnd the case (-1 1 tiintr flat on both sides.

Many Kinds of Laces. Any number of heavy, coarse, linen Inces Is to be had. nnd Irish crochet by many dressmakers is not deemed al all too fine for the trimming of coarse liten costumes. Naturally, thfse do not decorate tho co-called morning frock, built with a short skirt and a shirt waist. The most pronounced feature of the newest linen morning frock Is that the long shoulder line has disappeared and the sleeve Is a trifle less full. Egg Sauce for Fish.

A triple play Is one of the rare ll'iigs In baseball, because t requires . ciiiiitilmit Ion of circumstances which -eldoni occur. There must bo at least two men on the bases, and no one out. Then the next batter must hit the ball iti a certain way, or (he chance for n triple Is lost. In addition to this, the fielding must be perfect nnd fast. Hut two triple plays, mnde by one man nn nsslsted. have ever been recorded, due was the famous play of Paul Mines way back In the early '80s. The other Is fresh In tho mind, al though it was made in a minor leauiie. In l!i Harry O Ungan was playing first base for Columbus, in the West ern association. Tin canned, he went Knst to Newark, and the day after he donned a New Jersey uniform he (Hilled off the play that mnde him famous. With men on first nnd second and, of course, nobody out, O'Hagnn was playing clos-e to the bag, when the next batter hit a liner directly Into his hands. The force of the ball was enough to knock him back so that his foot touched tho first sack, retiring the runner, who was tiff tho base. O'Hagnn, turning to throw to second, snw that the runner there had started nt the crack of the bat nnd was nearly to third. So. Instead of throwing tho ball, he sprinted to second base with it in his hnnd, arriving In time to put the third mnn out on the play. Last season the Kansas City club of tho American association made twe triplo plays in one game at Toledo. Followed by a Lioness. While a lady and Rent leman were proceeding by ricksha from Snlisbury to Ardbennle on a recent Sunday evening they wero considerably alarmed by seeing, soon after cross ing tho railway, a lioness cross their path some twenty-five yards ahead of them. Iteing taken so much by surprise, they failed to check the boys, and pro ceeded on their journey. Shortly af terward they found tho beast about ten yards in the bush on one side of them, and she proceeded thus for over n mile ami a half. Fortunately, owing to tho dirty and slippery condition ol the roads, the boys' attention was confined to their work of Impellins the vehicle in their charge, and they did not perceive the lioness. It. was thought that the very bright light which the boys were carrying kept the animal at a safe distance. South Africa. Coquelin Would Lift Profession. M.

A hand punch for cutting holes through leather, cardboard and other Irr.ltar purposes Is almost as much of household implement as the ham mer, but heretofore the application af this tool has been limited to a very (treat degree by the act that, until comparatively recently, each punch was fitted for the purpose of making a hole of one size, so that where holes of many sizes were likely to be called for It was necessary to have on hand a number of punches. This was remedied by making a magazine attachment by which any one of six different sizes could be obtained. These tools at the best were suit ed only for leather and tianpr but there has been recently Introduced an improvement by which a variety of holes can be made, as far as size Is -oncerned, but the Implement has also the faculty of operating with great ease on sheet metal. The tool Is made In two different sines, with a working range of from one-sixteenth to one-half inch. The design of tho punch Is sucn as to glvt an unusually great leverage, as a pressuro of one pound, exerted on the handles gives fourteen pounds at the point of the punch, and It Is this great leverage that enables it to cut metal Photography In Colors. Direct photography In colors on pa pvr has been perfected In Germany. Writing paper free from wood Is used and is made sensitive to the different colors by being soaked In a bath con sisting of a mixture of alcoholic solu tions of primrose, Victoria blue, cya nln. curenmin. aurnmin. and an addi tion or anethol. The bath Is tested by exposing a sensitized strip of paper inder a test negative composed of red. ellow, green and blue strips of glass. Since the light sensitiveness tlimin- shes rapidly, exposure is made at once, and under favorable conditions good results are obtained In five min utes' exposure. The exposure Is made under a colored glass transparency or lantern slide. Ry modifying the bath a picture of flowers may be obtained directly In the camera. In another modification of the process an ordi nary platinum print is made, which Is then sensitized and exposed under a colored negative. The light sensitive ness of the paper depends essentially, however, on the nattue of the fiber of which the paper Is made. Toothbrush Substitute. A substitute for the conventions' toothbrush consists of a wedge-shap d device, preferably made of rubber or equivalent pliable material, witt fates modeled to effectively read those parts of the teeth that are In accessible to the regulation tooth brush as ordinarily wielded. The in vector of this device, a Chicago man declares that his toothcleaner will find effective entry between the teeth at tin front and rear, and at the same time be adaptable for both the front and the backs of all the teeth. The edges of the device aro separatee1 to afford lodging places for the dentl lilces, and the faces are so disposed with reference to the handle that 1' forms convenient angles for applies tion to tho dental curvatures. Th general character of tho appliance, is shown In the accompanying lllustrs tion. Life-Saving Raft An unslnkable life-saving raft foi passenger steamships has been In vented by Robert Chambers of Scot land. It Is made of wood and consists o' three longitudinal bulkheads, dlvid lng the raft into four longitudinal com part meats. The bulkheads are alst divided Into thirty-two a'.iMlght com partments. Sett anchor and hawser prevent the taft from drifting leeward in a heavy sea. The raft occupies small space and several can be safely btowed on top of each other on deck and all can be cut adrift at a mo ment's notice. Each raft will carr forty or fifty people, while life lines will support as many as can hang on The raft Is self-adjusting and Is pro vided with sockets to hold rowlock. and oars.
