plosely pished coarse sf-raws in ell
?hades. Finely nowa straws, Panu
^jnas, Leghorns and manillas will also
be worn. The coarso straws, how
ever, will be deemed the most ele
gant for toques and bonnets.. Tulle
will prove a strong rival of straw
during the early part of tho coming
season. Even now the nsw models
ar^p built of tullo and velvet. ; Chiffon
and tullo are also employed for deep
plaited frills to soft velvet crowns, and
'gay blossoms will doubtless be exten
sively worn in the early spring. Large
open roses are the most fashionable.
'Felt hats and toques have entire

Styles in Sashes. ,
Sashes of all kiuds and conditions
aro well to the front fia fashion, aud
tho now ribbons aro more beautiful
than ever. There aro Roman stripes,
checks and plaids, with satin bordered
edges, and flowered, ' corded, and
watered ribbons of nil kinds. Not,
chiffon, and laco sashes will continue
in favor; but it is not alono sashes for
the waist that swell tho list. Tho
sashes for tho neck aro quito as con
spicuous and moro generally worn, for
all women seom to Uko tho long silken
cravats around their throats. They
aro mado of liberty gauzo, chiffon, aud
thia silk, or.of Swiss, with hemstitched
and lace-trimmed mids. Tho newest
of these neck sashes is a scarf of net
with au elaborate laco pattern at tho
ends and an edge all around. They
range in price from $4 to $15, and aro
really very elegant. In smaller things
fo?- the neck thore is an unlimited
variety. Short bows and knotted
cravats of puro white lawn, withknifo
pl&ited frills on the ouds, aro added to
an array of lace knots and neck frills
which are ]yt youd-description.

are not intended for- anything but
mourning wear. They lofjk as though
part wero made of crape, ?Jid thon of
shirrings of silk and wool. They ave
also to bo seeu with a sort of blistered
surface, resembling matelasse or quilt
ing. They are always of a deep black,
not a blue black, and wear well, but
are among the expensive materials.
However, as they do not require much
trimming, they are not so expensive
as might bo-thought.
Noveltisc in Suttons.
In fino buttons for bodices and
jackets some handsome novelties are
shown in celluloid, jot, steel and por
celain. The latter are especially love

exquisitely aro ideal heads painted
upon them.

I'oivor Kcriulrod on Gnuie?. :
American highways have dften doub
ly followed the old Roman model, aid
run straight ahead regardless of ob
staoles. It seems not to have occurred
to our road-builders that less power
is, expended in going three miles
around a hill than ono milo up it, cr
that it is easier to cut down a hill o lice
than for all travelers to climb it thou
sands of times, or that no heavier load
can be hauled than can bo drawn up
the steepest part. To attain higher
levels the precipitous sides of hills
have been scaled, requiring* extreme
grados, when such could have beeu
avoided, and moro circuitous courses,
not materially longer, would havo ar
rived at the same spot with less ex
penditure of energy. Mountain roads
can be kopt in order only with extreme
iliftjoulty. The work oh them, tho
timo aird- ^unnecessary energy wasted
iu surmounting them, and tho half
loads that only cainbeji'aulod on them
aro sources of great and" constant loss.

Endurance of Xloriet.
-v.Tho "Vedette, the regimental journal
jf the Twenty-first Lancers, gives an
interesting account, of a march carried
jut between Cairo and th o Bitter Lakes
ind back-205 miles in five days. This
?vftH? done to" ?est the relativo merits of
?he three classes cf horses in uso in
??he' r?giment, namely, Arabs, Walers
[brought from India by the Seventh
Dragoon Guards), and Hungarian re
mounts lately suppliedyto the regiment.
The Arabs were six to ten years old,
the Walers fourteen years and upwards
ind the Hungarians four to fivo years
old, "rather young for such a trial.
The verdict was that, oven allowing
for ago, the Hungarian horses wero
decidedly, inferior iji breeding and
stamina; and the Waiora, though in a
more temperate climato they might bo
superior to tho Arabs, under tho pre
vailing conditions of service in Egypt,
"with short rations and plenty of saud,
long periods without water, and tho
temperature nt 130 degrees in tho
Bhade," were decidedly inferior tp tho
Arab, which, in a desert march, showed
itself well able to carry the British
soldier, with his impediments. As
the woight carried was nu average of
nearly sixteen stone, the marches were
decidedly good, namely, thirty-five,
fifty, thirty, fifty-eight and thirty-two
miles per day. Ono Arab, three Wal
ers and eleven Hungarians wero ' 'laid
up irr the sick lines" after tho trial.

Beview remarks upon -the consensus
of medical opinion that diseases in
general have their local habitations
some, like tropical animals and plants,
living only in tho tropics; some, like
consumption, gradually spreading
over the whole earth, while others,
like leprosy and smallpox, are by de
grees becoming limited in their dis
tribution, possibly tending, it may be,
toward extinction. On the other
hand, however, there are regions to
which diseases have never reached,
for instance, on tho summits of high
mountain rangesI and in tho circum
polar snowfields of the earth and air
and water are as barren of tho mi

Britons have become highly restraint
