Bvt; Vests contrast with the rest of the cos- j fume. Few or no fashionable dresses are made all j of one kind of stuff. w Petticoats are only worn with full dres? evening toilets. Chkviotb and bulges remain the favorite fabrics fur traveling suits. The favorite figures on brown linens are clover leaves in a browner tint. Faxi'y woollens have raised figures embroidered. or broche, with chenille. Even* White Mrsi.iv dresses are made with waistcoats which ar?- detachable. Son Materials, eiftier of silk or wool, that dia[??* gracefully, are much worn. Am.'M', the French linens are changeable oiit^ almost as pretty as the shot silks. White will ajain be the favorite festival dress for mid-sumi.iergarden parties. Silk Petticoats. with embroidered flounces, t are worn by the nio-t fastidious women. New white cotton batistes as wide as India null come with small old-fashioned figures. Embroidered nun's veiling is being made up extensively for evening dresses for young ladies. Coi.okf.d Surah sind silk waistcoats are frequently worn with white iuuil or nainsook dresses. It is Impossible to enumerate the various ehape- in which l.ats and bonnets are made nowadays. Velvet. even in the smallest quantities, does ! not appear upon any of the new spring and summer irowns. White Vkilisos come with broche figures in white silk, the designs small, scattered, and of great beauty. Jfk>kt Jackets are among the most popular lrra|ts for spring wear. They are very useful and serviceable. New Tailor-made Presses have perfectly plain skirts. They come in all the new brown and gray shades. 8<jrare-cct corsages are more worn with evening dresses than the very decollete, V-shaped or round corsages Dresses trimmed w ith cordings and pipings ' of ecru leather are displayed in the windows of ! New Vork importers. Gui.n. silver and silk gauzes, with raised and shaded velvet figures, are the most superb fabrics ever yet produced. Expressed kid cloves are worn entirely to the j exeiu-ion of those made of dressed kid. Tan and (rrey are the popular shades. Wii'Tk Veiling IIobes come in machine embroidered or broche for half the dress, the other j halt being ot plain stuff. Tin: blending ot what are called the old tapes- j try colors in new woolens is delightful to those who have feeling for color. Biomapep Satin Crefe-pe-Chixe, color on color the figures quite small? are among the 1 most elegant novelties ot the season. Evkn white dresses are made ot two kinds of material, one plain, the other embroidered, i broche, dotted, sprigged, barred, or striped. i Siuti.der Capes in chenille and lace, held together with rows of old-fashioned netting In bilk, will be the dressy midsummer street wrap. I I-ont" Newmarkets are ma'le of cheviot, beige, and camels' hair cloths. They have tight \ bodices, full skirts, and shoulder capes, with hi^h shoulders. The latest Importations of taffeta glaces are than-eable and also tine checked, and these are combined with brocaded taffetas iu the same colors with changeable grounds. A n \ rTV cloth hat or bonnet is now Invariably , pent home with the tailor-made" costume as a part ot the dress. This is a close following of > a fashion set by Parisian tailors. White Linens, dotted, sprigged. flowered, and figured in small scattered designs in colors? blue. red. violet, olive, and black?will be i worn iu combination with plain w hite linens to form suits. Brides now carry bouquets of Jacqueminot or Bonsilene ros?*s in preference to those that are pure white in color. The white roses, lilacs and liiitis of the valley are, however, much more suitable and becoming. Tub sunflower, daisy, marigold, dandelion, and hedge roses, with leaves, are the flowers most in favor for colored outline embroider)- on ponge?s and on pongee, gray and mushroomcolored cashmeres and woollen stuffs. Cray, pongee, and mushroom-colored cashmere.-, in all the shades of those popular colors, come in pattern lengths for dresses, part of wnk-h are covered w ith flow ers and sprays embroidered in outline stitches with varl-colored Bilks. Mo-.?grown and almond-colored plaids and fbeck - in fine camel"* hair and other softly draping w oollen fabric-are ^ en" fashionablv worn. E nc?-i>t for slender persons, these plaids form the skirt and tunic alone, the itodlce con-ist- J Ing of a jersey of dark moss-irreen stockinette. Cream color and iroiden brown are another popular combination in shepherd and block plaids. The Fashionable tailor made dress consists j of three pieces: a trimmed skirt, a habit bodice ' and a frock coat or redingute. The skirt is laid In side or clustered piaits. surmounted by a ; short. draped apron or folds which are lost In j the drapery behind, this descending to the top I t>!" a kilted flounce, unless the perpendicular j plait- are laid all around alike, as is not unfrequently the case. Shot Silks are and will continue to be very fashionable. Velvet Is much used to trim them, and should be ol a much darker shade than the silk. Shirred flounces are more effective for shot materials than kiltings. showing the wonderful changing sheen of colors to better advantage. "Pinked" rutfles and ruche* are much favored as trimmings for shot silks, and man) skirts are trimmed nearly to the w aist with narrow flonnces having the edges thus finished. Narrow flounces, pinked and only slightly fulled, are admirable foundations for lac** frills, keeping the lace from looking limp, and also showing the pattern to better effect. Htkki. Trimmings are again In vogne, but though largely used on bonnets, they are sparingly employed for dress garniture, the effect being considered too showy lor perfect taste. Bonnets and round hats covered with eocurial and other nets of black, embroidered with steel and trimmed with black aigrettes or tufts, trusted with steel, are exceedingly stylish and handsome. Steel buckles and buttons are much used on combination toilets of black and white, of striped, checked or fancy mixtures. Jet garnitures were never more fashionable or more elaborate and novel in pattern than at present. Be a dino appears to be as much the rage as ever, judging by the display made of beaded garri.tures of every description, both for dress and Umnet decoration. In every color and almost every shade they glitter on hat, mantle, shoe, parasol, and cape. A stylish ottoman of the golden-brown shades so much worn at present was made with wide panels of brown and gold brocaded satin and velvet, the edges of which were finished with a very rich passementerie ia beads of every shade of golden brown, bronze, and olive green. The small capote bonnet was a mass of similar beads, and the brown and jrotd strings were tied In one of the careless, distraut-looking bows that are the fashion of the hour. Tun New Tome Qveex says that the gown worn by Miss I.angdou at a fashionable wedding la New lurk this week was of remarkable beauty. Tne train was of white satin, brocaded with gold thread, and lined inside with gold otored satin that matched to perfection; between the lining and edge of the brocade ran narrow niching of the satin. This was worn over a petticoat of white satin, embroidered In gold pearls. A gown worn by an older woman had a dark ruby velvet train, its sole ornament being a grey seagull, with outspread wings laid tear the end on the right side. The petticoat was of eau de Nil satin, covered with white Jet embroidery and trails of deep red and pale yellow roses on the bodice. Miss Langdon ia 'the reigning belie in New York. Mary Anderson's equipage Is Raid to attract much attention in London. The livery of her footman and coachman beiae* adorned with buttoua of anormous SACRAMENTOIt was an odd name for a girl?Sacramento. So the trlil herself thought a3 she stooped down beside a spring at the foot of a cottonwood tree and lazily dropped her pail Into the water. "It ought to hare been given to a boy, If It was a fit name to give anybody," she said quite aloucn "But I'm more boy than girl, anyway.'' This fact was added rather bitterly, as she looked at her brown, rough hands and her bare ankles, and thought of the "boy's work" she had to do. And it was hard to believe that this was the best kind of a life for a young girl like Sacramento. Here she lived alone, for her father was down at the mouth of the canon all day. The garden work she was obliged to do, and the care ol the cattle fell upon her. It was not often that she saw any person but her father, although now and then, m spite of herself, she came in contact with the rude men of the mining camp up above. Yet Sacramento had her drerm, one that she "scarcely dared to own," but it came to her otten as she went about her work. She knew that down at Santa Barbara and in the towns along the const, and tar. far away across wide stretches of cont.nent to the great east, there were girls who lived very different from her life, and she dreamed of such a life lor herself. "Oh, it I could only go away from here'." she cried out. almost as one cries out for help. "If I could enlv go down to San Francisco and go to school there for a single year! Ah, if I onlyhad $500." Suddenly there was a step?not of a man. but a horse?on the bank behind her, and then soyie one spoke, she knew the vo'ce without looking up. It was l'ete Larrabee, a fellow w ho li\vd down on Hahnemann's plantation, two miles along the trail. He sometimes rode by. He had not heard her last words at all; yet strangely enough his own were a repetition of them. "Five hundred dollars, Sac," said he. "$500 in gold! D'ye waut to earn it? Ther's yer chance," and* he threw down to her a bit of paper crumpled into a ball. She picked it up, and slowly unfolding It, ran her eye over its contents: $500 re w van. The above amount will be paid for Information leading to the arrest, dead or alive, of Walter isomers, wno has worked for some time past on Maxwell's ranch. Said Soniers Ls about 18 > ears old and 5*4 feet high, rather good looking, with light, curly hair, blue eyes and a light moustaehe. When la-st seen he had on a black slouch hat, gray business salt, with blue flannel shirt, and bootd with red tops marked with the maker's name. The name of the county sheriff was signed at the bottom of the bill. Sacramento, having glanced it through, looked up. "He's been a stealin' horses," exclaimed Pete. "Got off last night with four of Maxwell's best somewhere*. That reward won't do much good, though. The Kegulators'U lasso him and string him up long 'fore the law'li git started. They're havin' a meetin' now up at the (iulch. 1 tell ye they are mad. They'll make quick work if they ketch him. Yer father's there. Ye needn't look for him home afore night, much." Then, after a word or two more, the man rode on, and presently Sacramento took up her pail, and with the sheriff's bill still in her hand went" slowly up the bank and across the trail toward the house, thinking very seriously about the $500 all the while. It was some hours after this, and the afternoon sun was going down behind the tops'of the mountains, that Sacramento, having finished her housework, was preparing to sit down on the porch to do her sewing, when she was met in the doorway by a young man she had never seen before. And yet he was no stranger. The girl knew him instantly, although the slouch hat was pulled down over the flaxen hair and blue eves, and the gray pants, torn and muddy, had been drawn out of the boot-legs so as to no longer allow the red tops of the boots with the maker's name to be seen. It was the horsethief. She did not. however, express any surprise as she saw him. She was accustomed to the sight ot rough, evil men; and at the first glance she had felt that this one could not he either verywicked or very dangerous. He was not much more than a fad. and had an air of gentleness and good breeding about him that six months of western life, and the miserable plight he was in at that moment, had by no means destroyed. He seemed to be short for breath, too, and was trembling as if he had been running. Instinctively he raised his hand toward his hat, and then, bethinking himself, dropped it again. "Could you give me something to eat and drink ?" he"asked, Ih a hesitat ing voice. " Anything will do. 1 ain very hungry. I?I have had nothing to eat since last night." " Come in," said Sacramento, gravely. In her voice there was neither kindness nor unkindness, she trying to realize the situation she was in. '\Corre in and sit down!" Then she went into the closet near by and began taking down milk and bread and meat, as | she slowly did so turning over the matter in her i mind. Here was this man who had been stealing horses, and for whose capture *500 was offered. In her own kitchen. Five hundred dollars! Exactly the sum she had lieen wishing for_the sumthat would take her down to San Francisco to school and help to make a lady of herself. And this sum may be hers if she could in some wav secure this stranger, or somehow 1 keep him in the house until help arrived. Help? Why. she hardly needed help. He was weak and ! exhausted, and in the drawer of the kitchen table there was a loaded revolver, which she well knew how to use. ; She came out presently and set the things before him. bringing also a teapot from the stove and pouring for him a cup of tea. Then she went and sat down by the window and watched him furtively as he ate. t In spite of his caution, he had taken off his hat while he was eating. She could better see what he was like. It was an almost boyish face, worn but not wicked, with the curling hair lying in damp clusters upon his pale brow. In the hands, small and well shaped, and in all his motions and manner, she felt that she could read something of his story. She had heard before this how young lads in the east, filled with romantic notions about western life and adventure, sometimes left their luxurious homes and found their way out to the ranches ot the Pacific. Perhaps he was one of these. As she looked at him, fancying all this, and realizing the terrible strait lis was in, anu the probable dark fate that was before him, her heart yearned with true womaniv sympathy; and heir feeling found expression before Bhe was able to restrain herself. "Oh. how could you do it? now could you do it?" she suddenly exclaimed, her voice quite full | of what Bhe felt. j He looked up at her In wonder; but as his eyes met hers lie understood her. "I didn't dolt. Upon my honor I did not." ! he said. "It was that man Dennis." Sacramento breathed a great sigh of relief. 1 Horse-stealing was held in that section to be a 1 crime worse than murder, and she was by no means free from the .popular estimate of its grave nature. I "Oh. I am glad of that!" cried she. "But?" ' she hesitated, and then went on doubtfully. "But. then, how was It? Why did you run away?" "It was Dennis' doings, their laying It to me. He did that to clear himself. And after that you know a* well as I do that there would have "been no use in trying to prove myself innocent. They alwavs hang a horse thief first and then consider his guilt afterwards. I had to run to save my life." "Do you know that there is a reward offered for vour capture?" "i know that the Regulators are after me," answered the young fellow, sullenly. "They came pretty near catching me, too, this noon. I Just escaped them and came down the canon by the mountain trail. I have bad a hard run for It, and what with no sleep for 24 hours, I ain about used up. I teel as though I could not go another step when I saw your house. You?you have been very good to me. I shall never forget " "But what are you going to do now?" Interrupted Sacrament?. "You are not safe here." "I know it But I threw them off the track this noon, and I do not think they are within five miles of me. Now, I have had something to eat. I will take to the woods az&ln. I hope I may get clear away. If I don't" his voice trembled and tears came Into his eyes. "If I don't, I shall get a hanging, I suppose. Oh, what a fool 1 was not to prefer home to this sort of thing! And yet. I wouldn't care so much, either, if it wasn't for my rather and mother." And there the poor tellow fairly broke down. "Hark!" Sacramento exclaimed. She had been crvlng, too; she could not help It. They both listened. In a moment they heard plainly the sound of horses coming down the trail. The girl turned with Instant self-possession. Go In there! Quick! Quick! There la not a moment to lose! Here take your hat!" And handing his hat to him, she half pushed him across the room and Into her own little room that led off from It. Then she hurriedly cleared the table again, barely finishing the task as the horsemen halted at the door. There were three of them. One was her father. Sacramento knew the other two men by ?ight. They were rough, but of the better sort ot those who made up the dwellers of Kelly Gulch. The faces of all three were stern and forbidding, and they evidently had been riding hard. They dismounted together. "Sac " began her father, as he entered the dojr, "hev ye seen anything ot a young chap, I afoot or a horseback, coming this way?" [ Sacramento bad exoected the question, and was ready for It. And she meant, If possible, to auswer without a lie. "A young chap, about eighteen years of age. and five feet and a half high, rather (rood looking. and with red-top boots on ?" replied she. "Yes! yes! That 8 him'." cried one of the other men. Has he been here?" "I was only quoting from this handbill," said Sacramento,* taking the naper from the shelf where she had laid it. "Then you hain't seen him at all?" tsked her father. "I hare been right here all day, and not>ody has gone by except Pete Lnrrabee. It was he I who gave me the bill. Are )rou sure that he came this way, the?the?liorsethief?" "No; but we didn't know but he might. The i chances is that he ia sloped off to the moun| tains, meanin' to go through Stovepipe pass. They'll git him. though^afore sundown." "It's sundown now," observed Sacramento. I " Then they've got him now," was the senten- j tious response. ' And we should be too late tor the hangin' et we sh'd go back. Leastways"? this was added to his companions?"you'd better come in and have a bite afore you go." So presently the three men sat down to the supper that the young girl quickly prepared for thein. And while they were eating, she herself, at her father's bidding, went out to taHe the saddle off Buen<? his horse, and give him feed, j As she approached the door once more, a few ! minutes after, she heard words which caused : her to stop and listen. "I don't like ter say anything against thet kid o' yourn, neighbor." one of the men was saying, ' but it hez kinder seemed ter me all ther whiles' though she sorter hed some' at on her miud like. Ye don't 'spose she knows auythiug 'bout thet young feller, arter all ?" Sacramento's father laughed at this as though it was too absurd to be considered. The other, however, was not to be laughed out of his suspicions. "Fur all we know." persisted he, "she may hev hid him here somewhere on the premmysis." "It's easy enough to see," returned the proprietor of the said " premmysls." testily. "Where d'ye think she's hid him ? In her bedroom ?" As he said this, Sacramento, who was now near enough to see into the kitchen, sa>v her father rise Irom his chair and step to the door of the room where she had concealed the fugitive. Her heart almost stopped beating as she saw him push open the door and enter the room, tollowed by his companion. "We'll make a clus-search of it while we're about it." she heard him say within. | And then she stood there In terribe suspense . upon the porch, expecting everv instant to hear the shout that would follow "the discovery of the fugitive. But no such shout was heard; and instead of it, a moment later, the two men came out again, her father still laughing at his friend. What could It mean? Had the young man been able to conceal himself in the room and so evade their search? That was not possible. Then she thought of the window. Could he have escaped from the room by that? The window was so small she could scarcely believe that he could have crept through it. And yet he must have done so. She went hurriedly to the back of the house and then down beyond the horse she?s. No one could be seen. She halted a moment uuder a live oak tree just at the edge of the garden. The evening was very calm and still,and the twilight shadows were deepening last. Was it the rustling of the wind in the boughs overhead that caught her ear? She listened. "Hist! I am here?in the tree." The words came in a distinct whisper from directly above her. She stood and thought a single moment before replying. Then she said, "You must get away from here at once," in an eager whisper, j "One of the men suspects something, and they j may at any moment make a search of the place. I am going iuto the house a mjnute. Get down ! at once and go through the garden and across the trail to a spring that you will find there. 1 It's at the foot of a big cottonwood tree. Stay 1 right there until 1 coine." Then she went hurriedly to the house. The three men were still sitting at the table, and Sacramento felt rather than saw that one of 1 them still re<rarded her suspiciously as she came in. She did not speak to them at all. but went directly through the kitchen to her own room, and in a moment more came out, went about her work in the kitchen, and took up a pail apparently to go to the spring for water. Ten minutes later, standing in the shadow of the cottonwood. young Somers heard a step, and then Sacramento, leading Buei'o all saddled aud bridled, appeared. He started forward. "Hush!" she said, "they may come out at any moment. Listen to what I say. Your life depends on it. You must ride straight down i h" trail for a quarter of a mile. Then, close by a j big cottonwood, just like this, you will strike a path to the lext. Bueno will know it, once yon I get him in it. It will bring you out half a mile on, at a corduroy road that crosses the swamp, j The end of this corduroy lias got out of order j and there are some logs laid. Lead Bueno i across and then pull the logs away. If you do | that it will make trouble for those who follow you. Beyond the swamp is a b'g plain, strike stmight across it. having the moon square on your right?the moon will be up by that time? i and three hours' riding will bring you to the | new railroad. After that?God help you to get safe away!" Sacramento paused and put out her hand. "Can you remember?" she demanded. "I can; but 1 can never forget?" " Never mind that. Here, take this. It is a little money. You will need it. Now mount and ride?slowly a little way, and then for your j life." The young man still had hold of her hand, j The tears came into his eyes. The next moment i he was gone. The next morning Sacramento told her father the story and coaxed h m into forgiving her. j i And the following afternoon a man brought Bueno over from the railroad town; and then she knew that the fugitive was safe. Six weeks later a lawyer from Santa Barbara ; | appeared with a letter frojn Walter.Soiners. He ! j was with his friends in New York. Hh begsed ! j Sacramento to accept, as a gift ot gratitude, at I least the amount of the rew ard that had been I offered. And so it was that she went dow n to San I Francisco to school that winter, after all. m Something Wrung Somewhere. From the Carson Appeal. Sam Jones, ot Gold Hill, Nev., has a domestic in his house who is a countrywoman of Sullivan. The other morning he and Evan Williams were eating breakfast, when, by a preconcerted agreement, they began a dialogue something like this. Sam leading off: "Curious, ain't it, that Sullivan took water from that Dutchman?" "Yes, indeed; I was quite astonished. He seemed perfectly cowed." "Well, I don't blame him. Hans is a big man, I and strong as a bull, and I guess he can lick 1 any two men in the world, John included." That's that, Mister Jones?" broke in the domestic, who had been hovering about the table; "a Dutchman lick John Sullivan! Are yez crazy or dreaming, Mister Jones?" "It's a fact," said Williams. "Hans Meyer, foreman of the No. 2 crosscut. Crown - Point, deposited *500 forfeit to rafcet Sullivan, and when he saw our man he weakened and let the money slide." The domestic dropped a china plate on the floor, and stood speechless. "He brakes all his rock with his flat," broke in Sam, "and runs the steam drill by hand. We gay him $12 a day lust for the steam he saves. uilivan happened to come in when he was making bird'B-eye porphyry with his fist, and I'm blamed if he didn't turn pale as a ghost." "Mr. Jones. if Mr. Evan Williams says this I'd beiave him; but as you say so it wouldn't go. There must be some mistake abeut his bein' a Dutchman." "He is a dutchman," said Williams, gravel?, "or else I don't know a Dutchman when I see him." "Thin, glntlemen," replied the domestic, drawing herself up a couple of inches higher, "all I've got to sav is that John L. Sullivan's no Irishman, and don't spake of him as one in my priaeuce." ? ? An Old-Tine Forger. From Griffith's Chronicles of Newgate. He did everything for himself; made his own paper, with the proper water-mark, engraved his own plates and manufactured hts own ink. His method of negotiating theforged notes was most artful. He had three homes. At one he was Price, properly married; at a second he lived under another name, with a woman who helped him in his schemes; at a third he did the actual business of passing his notes. This business was always effected in disguise; none of his agents or inbtruments saw him, except in disguise, and when his work was over he put it off to return home. Certainly the audacious cleverness of Prloe has not been surpassed, even in our own time. Once he pretended, la one disguise, to expose a swindler (himself in another disguise) whom a respectable city merchant inveigled into his house, to give him np to the police. The swindler proposed to buy himself oft for ?500, the offer was accepted, the money paid by a thousand-pound note, for which the swindler got change. The note, of course, was forged. Ultimately the law fastened its grip on Old Patch, and he was lodged in Newgate, where in despair he hanged himself. His plunder came to the enormous total of ?200,000; but how he disposed of his Ill-gotten gains, seeing that he always lired obscurely, and neither gambled nor drank, remained an Inscrutable secret to tbe last, * SoAKfcD TO THE WON.

It NO SUCH SUCCESS IN THE HISTORY OF LIFK insurance has ever l*>en recorded as that attained by the MUTUAL. RESERVE FUND LIFE ASSOCIATION. This Society is now but a little over Hire* years old, yet In that short time has written 19.000 certificates of membership, and had in force on the first of the year 4f64.<i<JO.OOO ol insurance. In the plan of this Association the perfection of Life Insurance seems finally to be re-ached. We do not. as do the old line companies charge upon an akscmkd mortality, and take from the policy-holder an amount so far in excess of the actual need to be put i. to big building's; nor yet do we, as asBenanient companies have dore hitherto and still generally do. charge so little as to render the I'ayiuent of the full amount msured ou each life at all precarious or doubtful. One-fourth of the sum collected at each assessment is act aside and deposited with a Trust Company under a deed of trust ior the policy-holder. The sum so reserved now amounts to $l^>,000. and is increase gttl.000 or 40.1)00 at?every assessment. By this method, which ori^Hnated with this Society, the policy holdtrs are protected from injury by the lapses or withdrawal of the healthy members, which will occur In every company, and the full payment of tlio wholu amount of each and every certificate, be it for one or teu thousand dollars, is mudc quite as certain, to say the least, as if. like some old-liners, we had charged two or three times as mush money and used it to build enormous buildings and pay princely salaries.
