Vhat a blessins tho new rucked sleeves aro for girls with thin arms! CJIvcn the right description of lace, or -jhiffon, and moderate care In the mat ter of construction, these sleeves can not fall to Itu becoming to the arms ami hands! Yes, very specially the latter, because Bleeves which reach well over the wrists have a happy way of making the hands look wonder fully small and white. Evening gowns, for quiet parties, of black mouBseline do sole, look fasci nating when mado In tho pinafore style, with the bodice drawn up over a transparent blouse of Ivory point d'Ksprlt. This hi -use should be cut a little low at the neck, with bebe ribbons run through a soft tucker of chiffon, and the sleeves should be finely rucked from shoulder to wrist. A gown of this genre, with a waist band of Sevres blue mirror velvet and a touch of blue at the breast, could not fall to look charming, and It would be exactly the rich thing for dinner wear at one of the big hotels or restaurants. It Is Important to realize that tucked sleeves should fit tho arms tightly, or practically so; In fact, tho pressure of tho material on the arms should he sufficiently insistent to keep An Original and Pretty Design. the tiny folds in plane. In all cases tucked sleeves should bo cut "on the cross," and It Is a good idea to have bait a dozen very small hooks and eyes on tho under s':am near the wrist. Of tho making of fringes, and if tho wearing of sumo .thero Is no end All the new linen frocks are trimmed with fringes, and also with many taa (els, and superb fringes are posed on evening gowns of crepe de chine, vel vet and taffetas. With these fringes bias folds of material aro very much used; Indeed bias folds aro playing an Important purt in tho fashions of the hour. Frequently they aro of the same naterlal as the skirt, but some times they are of velvet and of satin In a slightly deeper tone of color. Graduated hands of velvet r.bhon run the bias folds very close, as a skirt trimming, but the ribbons belong, al most exclusively, to the world of robes d'lutcricur, whilst bias folds aro lavishly used on dinner gowns. Quite tho most attractive of the pjt tlcuats worn wltl the blue serge tall-or-mudo frocks are black and white striped sa'.in, the lines perpendicular on the skirt nnd horizontally placed on the flounce, which is either kilted or plainly hemmed or decorated with medallions of black lace. Another good silk petticoat Is made' in shot silk with doublo-kllted flounces cut Into Vandykes at the edge, no other trimming being vouchsafed. These, too, are particularly suited to the serge dress. For tho voile gown I would recommend the glace petticoat. It has a hand-embroidered lawn frill put on at the top with a beading threaded with ribbon. For the economical I commend the petticoat of double-width alpaca In black and white check, with a shaped flounce trimmed with three graduated rows of black velvet ribbon. It is nec essary to buy tho very best quality al paca and then I would guarantee Its wear for three seasons. The same vir tue, I regret to say, cannot be ac credited to any known make of glace silk, nor accorded to any tried bro cade or strlpue. And, writing the word stripes, I am tempted to insist again upon their amazing popularity. Not alone are there striped tweeds and striped cash meres and striped silks, but there are striped voiles and crepe de chines these last looking their best In black when tho stripe Is of satin, and Is real ly a new edition of our old friend the satin-striped grenadine, but exhibiting much improvement from the softei fabric with which it is allied. It cannot bo truly said that the fashions loan amiably towards the do sires of the thrifty, whom I would ad vise to remain faithful to tho tailor made cloth coat and skirt until the summer Is quite established, whea un der clever homo directions plain voiles may bo successfully treated in com bination with vest and undcrsleeves of ecru figured net, special trouble be ing taken to secure tho wide armhole of Japanese stylo, which is, indeed, easy enough to achieve, and is like tc enjoy a continued run of popularity. As I have previously said, it Is not dlfllcult to manipulate, and will con ceal in its hanging folds a few of those defects without which tho amateur made costume is never quite complete. Minor matters which are just now receiving special attention are belts and buckles, the newest of the latter being of filigree gold raised almost in dome shape and decorated in the cen ter with a slnglo large jewel, ame thyst, or olivine for choice. The belts aro of leather of all colors, soft or shiny of surface, and the elastic belts still intrude In every conceivable color, tho newest elastic being of gold and of gold and sliver interwoven. The plaid patent leather belt Is perhaps more novel than attractive, and to the really slim waist no bslt Is more be coming than that contrlvod from a wide piece of ribbon pinned into the center of tho back and drawn tightly through a chased silver or gold buckle in the front. Hut these are particular ly suited to the voile or silk frock, the cloth coat and skirt of our immedi ate desires call for sterner stuff, and for theso leather and kid I would most highly recommend, holding a special brief for those which aro shaned slightly In tho center at tho back and possess only one buckle, that one buckle being set in the front.

( OOLDEN TEXT.-"Mo was learned n all tho wisdom of the Egyptians, and as mighty In words and deeds." Acts 1:22. TIME. Moses was born probably dur nir the reign of Rameses II., which last Id 97 years, namesoa dying at the age H nearly 100. Bayce gives as tho limits f bis reign B. C. 1348-1281; Driver, 1213 208; Ureastcd, 1292-123. According to the :ommon chronology, Moses was born B. C. 1571, and our lesson, covering the first 10 yeas of bis llfo, would extend to 1531. PLACE Moses was born at the capital f Egypt, which at that time was either Memphis, nearly where modern Cairo is, r Tniiis (Znan), In the eastern purt of the Nllo delta. Comment and Suggestive Talk. The Working of God's Plans. See hat factors entered Into this preser ration of the world's greatest man. There was (1) a humble slave family; (2) a little basket of bulrushes; (3) a little girl; (4) a baby's tears; (5) Pharaoh's own daughter; (6) the child's own mother; (7) a royal court. All of these were brought together at Just the right time, in Just the right way. "This lesson Is one of the best Illustrations of a perfect combination of the best co-working of human effort and divine providences." The Court Life of Moses. "The fa vor of the king's only daughter and presumptive belr made his life In these early years one Song, unclouded summer morning, for all that wealth and power could command were at his Bervlce." Getkle. "He would live chiefly in tho apartments of his moth er, which would probably be a portion of the royal residence, and would be furnished with every luxury." Raw llnson. Yet life at Pharaoh's court, "amid all Its attractions and advant ages, must have had some drawbacks. Egyptian youths and Egyptian court iers could not be altogether cordial to the Hebrew boy, who, as the grand son of Pharaoh, enjoyed so exalted a position, and received such eminent attention." Blaikie. The School Life of Moses. Egypt then had two great universities, at Hellopolis and Hermopolls, and Moses Is said to have studied in the former, which was situated about 20 miles north of Memphis. It was "the Ox ford of Ancient Egypt," as Alexandria was In later times. Herodotus went thither to gather information for his travels, and Plato studied there for 13 years. "Shady cloisters opened In to lecture rooms for the students, and quiet houses fr the professors and priests, in their many grades and of fices; there being room for all In the corridors of tho huge pile." GeLkle. A splendid library would be at his dis posal. The library of the Rameseum at Thebes a structure built by Rame ses II. contained 20,000 books. The studies of the young man would include the two forms of difficult Egyptian writing, arithmetic, geomet ry, trigonometry to some extent, as tronomy, music, both vocal and Instru mental, painting and architecture, medicine and chemistry, history and law, poetry and other branches of lit erature, and especially theology, ex tending to its highest form, "the phil osophy of symbolism," in which the Egyptian religion, gross as it was, came nearest to the Hebrew. As a member of the royal family, Moses was no doubt received Into tho priest, ly caste, and knew all their secret lore. The Military Life of Moses. Steph en tells us (Acts 7:22) that Moses was "mighty in words and in deeds." Tho words "mny have meant such power of composition aj appears in tho hymn by the Red sea, and in the magnificent valediction to his people." Expositor's Hible. As to the deeds. after completing his university course, Moses might have become u hanger-on at the court, or obtained some civil ap pointment and sought to climb tho of flclal ladder, or entered the literary llfo, or devoted himself to the priest hood, or become a soldier. Tho tra dition that he chose the last-named calling Is In accordance with the prob abilities, and explains his great mili tary ability displayed in the exodus and afterwards. The Patriot's First Attempt. It was natural that Moses' first attempt at aiding his people should be a blunder. Even the greatest men make mistakes, and prove their greatness by their ability to learn from their mistakes. The Patriot's Second Attempt. "To smite the oppressor was not enough Moses must unite and discipline th oppressed. And this was his next ef fort." Hanna. "The treatment he re ceived from the Hebrews he sought to aid showed that they were by no means ripe for freedom or national ity." Townsend. , Lessors in Patience. Ex. 2:16-25. Moses remained In Mldlan for the sec ond of tho. threo 40-year periods into which his life Is divided. Practical Points. "Every man's life Is a plan of God Tho life of each scholar In your class has been planned by God as carefully and lovingly as that of Moses. Tho best start in life is that af forded by a godly homo. Not the rich est family in Egypt gave their son a better outfit for life than Mosej re ceived from his slavo parents. Every child is a possible prince.
