FROMTHE METROPOLIS its Tlint Arc lcctclclly Novel nnl Hnuirt Tin- liMle Details Tlint Count f;r Much In Drew row i inx Demand for Silk in limbing Costumes Dressy Hat. HY .Itl.lOS TllKKOW. Hardly a week passes without some new way of designing little separate coats for midsummer wear, ' and some of the models now pro duced are Intended to serve as 'hints for early autumn. One of the latest methods of designing smart ; coats is exploited In this model In j soft chiffon taffeta, worn with a skirt of plum colored etamine, the skirt being much lighter than the j tone of the taffetas. It Is also made simply, fitting the hips snugly and ' bearing a fold of Its own material, j combined with stitchlngs of silk, ar- I ranged high at the back and In drooping points on either side of the front panel. . i Klne silk soutache braid plays an important part in the designing of the coat, this trimming being em cm COATS GROW MORE NOVEL, ployed as a stitching for the fronts continuing In a round yoke effect at the back. Where the braid leaves off the taffetas is shirred on the front of the coat, shirring and braid being separated by a band of plain silk fibre braid with silk passamen terie ornaments. The sleeves are full at the top, but shirred into the long, low shoulder line and finished below the elbows with bands of braid. The Empire vest, high col lar and, revers are of chiffon taf fetas bound with the lighter etamlne of the skirt and the jampot hat is in light colored straw with flower, trimmings In darker tones. There Is every reason to believe that as the season advances, plum tints will be much favored both in light and dark tones. Combined with black there Is no richer color scheme. It often happens nowadays that the most that l worth while in dress Is embodied in the nttle details of the toilette. Never were so much thought and care given to accessor ies for the neck and sleeves as now. A lovely detail for a summer tailor made, whether of linen, silk or woolen material is a sailor col lar like the one in the centre of the group. For broad shoulders it is not quite so wide, but carried out in smooth linen with embroidered and lace finished edges it is neat and at tractive. Separate collar and cuff sets are more beautiful than ever, and linen LITTLE THING3 THAT COUNT, in all qualities is the chief material for their making. A great deal ot band embroidery Is used in their decoration, as Insets of lace do not wear well, though they make a dain ty embellishment. The various little ties and stock pictured are fashioned of net and handkerchief linen, while the sep arate turn-over collars, a favorite neok trimming of the summer girl are of plain linen, neatly adorns with embroidery. The more elaborate bows with Merry Widow Jabots are reserved for dressy waist and look better la fine net or fancy silk mulls and Alffsm . bordered wljih soft lesjt. A iTS UN By the sad sea waves nowadays, one looks rather at stunning water costumes than listens to the roar of the water, quite forgetting the old familiar ong. This season's models reflects the growing demands for silk and silk finished fabrics for buttling costumes, which, by the way, are cleverly and exceptionally well fitted. The design Illustrated Is fashioned of dark green silk fin ished mohair, with trimmings of (it'll m white silk bruld. The plaited skirt and blouse bodice are Joined with a plain, well-fitting belt of mo hair, giving the suit the appearance of a one-piece garment. The princess and the jumper styles arc as popular In the bathing 6LB I COSTUME FOR SALT SEA DIPS, suit realm a.4 in tne longer skirted shirtwaist suits, and take on about the same lines, cut and finish, with the exception thut the skirts are i shortened, also the sleeves, and the neck cut out. The full length panel ' front, with gored or circular skirt section Is the princess design most suited to bathing costume purposes, and Is the on often met with. White taffetas, serge and alpaca ' bathing suits are very fashionable and look wonderfully well trimmed with black, blue or red braid or bauds of plaid silk. In the large hats of fashion it Is noticed that much prominence is given to smooth straws over rough ones. Crowns continue high and large, the extremely high thimble . crown being a great favorite with ! French oigintitors of millinery modes. The trimmings are of blue and I white roses and the green foliage has grateful touches of gold that comprise a delightful color scheme. A HAT FOR DRESSY WEAR. The brim Is curved sharply at the side, breaking the line of the very wide brim. The trimming almost completely covers the crown of the hat, standing high ut the side. Whatever the size of the hat this season, all trimmings are inclined to be extreme. The long, slender pointed wings, enormous quills which extend well beyond the hat brim and soft drooping ostrich plumes vie with (lowers as smart millinery dec oratlvcs, being arranged in more ef fective groups and combinations of colors. Stamp Language. "I wouldn't do that if I were you," suggested th former soldier, as he watched his pretty niece care lessly affix a stamp upside down on a letter she was about to post. "Why not?" she asked, as she has tily inverted It to its correct posi tion. "When I was young that was ac cepted as a sign. It meant, 'You need not reply to this letter.' Dur the civil war many a friendship was terminated by that silent message. When the time came that everybody had to take a final stand on one side or the other in the great contest and when families were divided in the struggle, the turning of a stamp upside down on a letter often saved words and long explanations which perhaps aching hearts hardly felt able to give "I doubt if many people now know It ever had such a meaning, but I have never been able to overcome my uneasiness' when I see anybody do it." To Prevent Moths. To keep moths out of upholstered furniture, sprinkle well with benzine. It will not spot or stain the most del icate colors and the unpleasant Oder oon passes away In the air. Whea It Is known that a moth miller hae entered a closet, burn a tablespoon t ul of gum camphor la tne room dot ing the door and letting the olothee remain la the fumes. jf ''c"' 1 1'INHING TIIK llAHKKN'flXR. What Happened When the Malwa ' Had the Wabbling Habit. "Talk about your out of the way places," said Captain Calhoun, of the Urltlsh barkentlne Malwa. 'Why, the Malwa makes a habit of taking cargoes to spots that are hardly on the map. I say hardly, because I doubt if one out of ten mariners can find Port Mndryn, which most people would tnke for a Chinese harbor or the village ot nu Indian tribe. As rt matter of fact. Port Madryn lies on the border or Patagonia, although It comes pnjpet ly under the dominion of the Ar gentine Republic. We've been Hill ing for that port for several yearn, and ho far we have escaped any trouble, although once we enme near h-'lng caught on the rocks, tar from 'human assistance. "The Malwa had entered the roads near Puerto Madryn, as the South Americana call It. and wo were feeling our way through the tortuous channels when my mate sang out that the Malwa seemed to be wabbling. I was In the cabin at the time and too much engrossed with a good dinner to feel the wab bling that the mate told tne of. "As I came on deck I, too. felt the queer motion of the barker.tinc There was a stiff breeze blowing across the channel and I ordered the canvas reefed so as to slow up a bit between the treacherous sunken rocks. Hut the Malwa Just went ahead, lurching over one way one t'.m;' and over toward the other side the next, like an Intoxicated person, and squeaking In a queer way nil the time, just like a human bolna in distress. rrSHIXO A DARKENTINE ALONCJ "Nothing that we could do with the sails teemed to hold the ship. It looked to me as If the blooming rocks were rising and falling like a toboggan slide and keeping the Mal wa on the go In spite of herself, scraping her bottom as she went over the smooth but dangerous rocks. "My mate, Carlton, told me he was beginning to feel queer like, and one after another the crew "got white around the gills." By and by the motion of the Malwa got me go ing, too, as the apparently crazy craft kept wabbling to and fro and sliding forward as if she was proceeding over greased ways Instead of cutting deep water With her pretty bow. "Something had to be done to stop the Malwa. There wasn't a man In the crew who was fit to haul a rope, much less to think up a scheme to save the barkentlne from what appeared to me to be certain destruction "I managed to get a few of the men to get out some long poles, and four of us hammered poles down In n:i efTcrt to stop the uneven progress of our vessel. Everywhere we felt rock, rock, rock, and the Malwa con tinued to wobble and wobble, At last we were unable to reach bottom, and a few minutes later we Fti'uck mud with our poles. None of us cherished the Idea of being canal boat men on a barkentine. Put with our poles, pushing against the persistent headway of the Mal wa, we certainly were no better then the crew of a canal liner. "We brought up in a sort of cove Bid breathed free for an hour or two while I ransacked the charts to find where we were. The charts told nothing of the channel there, a. though I am sure that we had had an open sea at the same place be fore, from all observations. "At Puerto Madryn where we fin ally made port, we learned that on the day we had been tobogganing r.brct'gh the rocky channel there had been an earthquake in Pata gonia that had caused much destruc t'fcrt and I realized why those bloom ing rocks had been a-wabbllng." llig Tip for Iittle Favor. "It Is surprising," said a veteran Pullman porter, "how big a tip a porter sometimes get for doing a very little thing." He added: "A passenger once tipped me ex tra because he said I did not leave 'his shoe strings coiled up Inside IUb his shoes after I had blacked them. He said nothing made him madder than to slip on his shoes in a 'hurry only to find that he had to take them off again because the shoestrings were Inside. "Ever since that time I have been careful not to leave the shoestrings intide the shoes I black, and more than one passenger has thanked me for being thoughtful. Dut It wasn't me that did the thinking. The tip did that for me and I never forgot It." Leslie's Weekly. Employs Thousands.

TIIKV MWIXDI.KD KAKMMIW. 1'wo Men Held on Charge of Operat ing Fraudulent Produce Co. New York, -duly 2. Post Office Inspector Klncald believes that when he arrested Joseph II. Schlossmnii, alias Mang'n, and Morris . Oreen aiiiM tireenhurg, he put a stop to the new Imposition on the simplicity of the farmer. The two men were ar raigned before Commissioner Shields charged with using the mails In furtherance of a scheme to defraud farmer, and were held in $2.in0 each for examination. Sclilnssn'mi was committed to the Tombs but Green war, released on bail. It Is alleged thnt with U. F. C' lien anl Martin Green they formed the I'nited Putter nnd Egg oni lany, with n fictitious capita! ( $"., oon, and by representing to ! lie farmers about York nnd llarrishurg. Penn., that they hnd contracts to supply a great nunil er of Slimmer holds, Induced them to sen.l lu three months to their commi.-i'in Louses, one of which was at York, JlOO.oOO worth of butter, cgs.-i aim poultry. Thesi provisions they rent to re futable commission houses in this city, and the United Putter and Kgg Company closed up In lens than a month ..t Yo k, owing farmers in thnt vicinity about $31,000. Joseph D. Stlnson, Chief of De tectives at York, brought about the arrest by complaining to Mr. Shields. He said they used the malls for sending fraudulent circulars, and they fraudulently pretended that their capital was $75,000 when they had only paid $1,4 00. Will Defy Ilrynn. Denver, Col., Juno 30. That Mr. Pryan will be defied on the question of the platform, even by his own delegates, in case he Insists on em bodying his views on the subject of an anti-injunction plank, is becom ing very cletr. The situation form ing here is almost a duplicate of that which prevailed at Chicago. The leading candidate who holds the Convention so far as the President ial nomination is concerned In the hollow of his hand, desires the in sertion of a plank chtnglng the law in reference to the issuance of in junctions against labor for the pur pose of getting the union vote. Samuel Gompers who says he speaks for the union vote, is not satisfied, and wants something more radical. On the other hand, many of the leading spirits in the convention are prepared to give battle to the lead ing candidate rather than accept his dictum. Sherman to Return to 1'ticn. Cleveland, July 2. It has been definitely dtcided that James S. Sherman, Republican candidate for Vice President, will leave for his home In Utica, N. Y., on Thursday.

Does It profit ber to gain brigbt ness of her carpets when she Is bound to have her children lose the brightness of their eyes and become pale and wan? There Is no comfort in a room that the nun don't shine in. It is something that should not be toler ated. Many children become every day more dull and uninteresting through deprivation of the sunshine they re quire. Have you ever placed a plant in a dark corner of the cellar and watched It dally turn whiter and whiter? And can you expect your babies to thrive without the lh;ht that gives life. Think of it. Don't keep the shades down to protect the carpet. Worth knowlnjv. In dusting remember tiiat a little good furniture oil on the dust-rag is worth a good deal of elbow grease. Old kid gloves, useless for most other purposes, are very good to rub oil on with. A labor-saving housewife leaves her silver soaking In sour milk for two or three hours, and does not have to use any polish. Did you know that freezing pie crust before baking it will make it lghter. To draw the threads easily In a piece of linen, wet with soapy water. To make a crisp crust on a cake add a spoonful of Ice water to the dough. A Thought for Tfi-duy. Semi-invalldlsm is the curse of women of the present tfny. Many a one is not satisried unless she Is con tinually consulting a specialist about something or other. Much of this impaired health is due in the ab sence of organic diseases, to want of proper rest rrom excitement, proper holiday from work and often also to iusufllcleut food. Pjiofim Wardell.
