SPRING WEDDINGS.
T
HEREccrtalnlylssomethlngpcculiarly
bright and attractive about spring
wcddjigsand celebrated as they
arc so Immediatelvafterthe Lenten
season, the contrast Is particularly
marked. Then everybody feels It a duty to
don their new and rrcsh spring costumes in
honor of the occasion, jo that not only does
the bridal party, but the guests as well, ap
pear In smartest raiment.
The principal Idea this spring Is nppir
'Untlytohavecverjthingnlouta wedding
In the simplest possible style, expensive
materials If so desired, but no gaudy effects
or conspicuous colorings.
Churches In this age of the world do not
look so brilliant when weddings are cele
brated therein as they did In the dajs when
fiilldrcss wasdcrlgucur. Nowevery woman
must wear a hat, consequently a street
gown, and even though that gown may be
of the richest material and most vivid color
ing, It has not the same brilliant effect as
when Ihcevenlnggowns.nml the hair carc
tully dressed and sparkling wilh Jewels,
were considered the correct costume. The
bats and bonnets of this season, however,
and the flowered slllr costumes which are
In fashion at present, cannot be called dull;
and roses, violets, orchids and flowers of
every kind nnd description whose proto
typese ver bloomed on earth or wcrccvoloved
from the Inner consciousness of the'riowcr
manufacturers, have lent their aid to relieve
anv somherness of coloring among congre
gations m m m .
USEFUL SLIPS.
FURNITURE slips arc highly valued by
all wise! economical housewives. If
the wornout furniture Is covered
next mouth with fresh linen slips
the expense of re-covering may be
postponed until Oitober, and the neat, use
ful slips will be on band for use during
many summers to come. Not the least ad
vantage of such an arrangement is thatthe
room Is completely transformed and given
an appropriately siimmerish appearance.
Heavy plush furniture is not a suitable
background for summer gowns. Moreover,
it is hot and unattractive looking In the
humid summer da)S. And it must In all
cases be considered the part of wisdom If
the housewife can save the wear and tear
on her furniture for five whole months uut
of the jear.
If the bouse Is closed during the summer
the linen coverings prcv cnt an accumulation
of dust upon the plush or other material. If
It is kept open, the arc cool and comfort
able. Linen of plain gray or ccro Is the best
material, and the binding cf braid is rather,
unnecessary. It Is almost needless to say
that the coverings should fit. They should
be carefully cut out in sections and the
edges Joined and bound. This, however. Is
a matter thai any upholsterer can easily dis
pose of.
Suto Tonr Boxes.
Every well-regulated house should con
tain a placer where boxes are kept. Then
every one who comes to the house, as soon
as its contents arc used, should be put In
this closet, along with the string and
wrapping paper, so that If a parcel Is to
he done up in a hurry the materials are
at band.
THE RVENIKG
HE Epwortn League ot Suffern, N.
Y., belli a Trilby auction recently for
the purpose of ralslngenougb money
to induce the pastor to refuse an J
offer of Increased satary made by a
neighboring congregation.
The auction was a great success. Tbo
members ot the congregation nere at
tracted by a bazaar, which was given In
a I.irge room. Then, at an bour previous
ly fixed, all the joung girls in the con
gregation "were g.ithered behind a partly
raised curtaltu whlcli revealed only ttclr
feet. Then the funny man of tie crowd
acted as auctioneer, and the girls were
sold to the highest bidder, who could
only Judge the appearance or the per
sonality of the girl from what be saw of
her feel.
NEW STYLES OP CARDS.
A'
N effort is being nude by tliobe who
desire -variety to Introduce the
fashion in vogue thirty years ago
of having names on calling cards
put In Roman letter. Howling
swells have their cards engraved In this
style. It is more expensive than the old
fashloncd script. Certain conservatives ot
the fashionable world look askance at these
cards engraved In Roman letters, for, no
matter how cxqulsitclj they are executed,
they suggest, at first glance, common print
ing. However, it Jou wish to.be very fit,
have a thin card einlK-lINbed with jour
name In small Roman capitals.

TAKING TIME TO LIVE.
N these hurr skurry days of ours, says
a writer, when ever body Is trying to
do an hour's work In forty minutes,
there Is nothing quite so refreshing
I
to come across as a man or woman
who seems to have time enough to live.
"Heaven defend me from all two legged
whirlwinds," wrote Charles KIngsley many
j ears ago, and it seems as it bis terror was
prophetic, for the two legged whirlwind
Is to the fore Just now wilh the force and
tervor of a bottled up hurricane.
Sober scientists tell us at rcguUir Inter
vals that the reaction Is bound to come.
Staid German towns, whose clocks boast
only an bour hand, look aghast at talcs
of American energ, nnd daintj Denes ana
beaux ot our grandmothers' dajs, who
still linger In bewildered surprise amidst
the clamor ot the hour, predict our utter
destruction; but the pressure is all about
about us, and we must lcid or be left
behind.
How, then, shall we learn the secret of
re3t and repose In the midst ot unrest and
excitement? nerc nnd there we meet with
a busy woman, who does the work of
three averagu people, and yet keeps se
rene nnd peaceful from one week's end to
another; but the secret Is not easy to
learn. 'vThe theory is patent enough; it
Is simply "Never burr, never worry."

THE ARTfOin WALKING.
a
"H
AVE Jtfu 'crer noticed," com
mented nun, "bow women put
down their Icct as they -walk to
ward fi.P the street, and how
they nfmdsf. always show the
soles of their succs,Jui an ugly, liee'-flrst,
8lap-me-dowu soni oil fashion? Not one
in fifty, or even a hundred, put down her
feet gracefully, and jet every child who
goes o dancing 'phoBl is told over and
over again by ber dancing master to
point the toes and put them down first."
The habit of putting down the heels first
Is called the "peSsant's walk," as It is
csseulially bourgeblse in Its 'character.
Duse, as Banluzza, In "Cavallerla Rusti
cana," imitates this walk admirably.
"But do jou LnoWj'i said a fashionable
woman, who was waknlng tbc actress,
and had beard this particular gait dis
cussed, "that is exactly the way I walk
myself," and the friend who was -with her
rould not gainsay ber, for the lady was
not noticeable for her graceful carriage.
II Is a great pity that the art of walk
ing is not taught as persistently and care
fully as dancing. It seems to to an ac
cepted Idea that it a child learns 10 dance
well e-rnr-c will naturally follow, and that
the Improvement will be general; but this
Is by no means the case. Aptitude at
dancing by no mcuns argues that a good
carriage and graceful walk will 1 de
veloped, nnd It will bo only by making
this part of the physical education a sep
arate and particular study that satisfac
tory results will be obtained. Boston

AMERICAN G1KL HONORED.
M
IBS FANNIE EDGAR THOMAS,
who was made Officer d'Acadc
mle by the French govern
ment on February 18, In rec
ognition of her work in
musical criticism. Is" the first Ameri
can woman to win such distinction.
Miss Thomas lias been in Paris but little
more than a jear. and went there utterly
without influence. Her success, therefore,
in grasping the musical spirit qf France
and interpreting it as she bas done. Is the
more conspicuous.
The recommendation of Miss Thomas'
work sent to the Academy was signed by
such well-known names as Alexandre Ouil
mant. Ambrolsc Thomas, C. Saint-Saens
and others. Massenet, who wasln Milan at
the time, sent a special letter expressing
hlsdcsirethatthe honor should be conferred.
Not only in winning glory for lierseir. but
In harmonizing the musical Interests of
two countries. Miss Thomas bas done a
work of which American women may be
proud.
NEW DRESSING SACQUES.
T
HE dressing sacque, which has not
been much In evidence tor a iew
trari. Isacalnthefashlon. Ilshould
be worn only In the privacy ot one's
own room, and thero It Is dainty
and charming.
The new dressing sacqucs are made or
sheer cambric, and are trimmed with lace
frills and insertions. Some of the prettiest
have deep sailor collars and full bishop
sleeves. The collar fastens In front with
a bow of rlbton with long ends, and the
same colored ribbon is used to confne the
fullness of the sacque at the waist.
A pretty dressing sacque trimmed wilh
lace may bo tiought ready made for $2.25,
and jet others, made to order, come as
Sigh as $50. The expensive sacques arc
trimmed lavishly with real lace and are
of the sheerest of cambric.
Many of these, costing $5, have the
collar and cuffs outlined with narrow em
broidery beading, through which ribbons
ire run. The rlblions He here and there
In tin bows, and theeffect Is very pretty
THE AMERICAN GIRL.
r
HE single woman In tne unucu
States Is infinitely superior to her
European sister. Free from the
fetters that often make the French
old maid so pitiable and ridiculous
she does not, like the latter, expect to gain
liberty bj marriage. On the contrary, by
marriage she would lose that perfect in
dependence which allows her to cultivate
hi rsclf more and more, to rise Into a la rger
sphere than that of the family and even
orthe ordinary social circle, bj consecrating
herself to work sof universal interest, ncr
Intercourse with men, freed from thechlldish
ncss of flirtation, bears a stamp of quiet
ness and freedom which allows real and
serious Intimacies that no criticism could
assail. One sees no bitterness, no regrets.
Her lot Is too beautiful, her life too full.
In spite of the natural sausractions re
nounced nay. perhaps Just on account of
that renunciation. Let there be, however,
no misunderstanding. If It seems Indis
pensable to me that the woman who, for
some good reason or other, does not marry
si ould find some sphere for her activity, I
severely blame the systematlcscorn of mar
riage which comes to many young Ameri
cans who are ambitious to be somebody, to
do something, to distinguish themselves
:n a career and to escape from the common
ways. With these pretended vocations
there Is often mixed a childish vanity, a
morbid. Idea of creating a sensation, of
slnglingonesclf out. and obstacles are most
useful In proving their real value. Forum.
The "rromoter" Thrives.
The young woman bicycle "promoter"
does a flourishing business. Not only does
she skim along the highways, but she Is a
feature ot the bicycle schools, aud earns a
good salary by simply wearhig a stylish
suit, looking as If she were tlioioughly en
joying herself, and riding with ease and
grace. Of course, she is supposed to be
a patron of the scheol, and her proficiency
and evident enjoyment attract others to
followher example. A good figure Is as
essential for a bicycle "promoter'-as for a
cloak model, and upon the same principle.
HOPE FOR PLAIN WOMEN.
"W
OTJLD you rather have style or
beauty?'s.U a question often
asked among women, and the
answer Is almost invariably In
favor of stjle, while men quite
as decidedly vote in favor of beauty us a
matter of course.
A pretty face alone counts tor but little,
especially at a ball or any other social func
tion. If the owner is otherwise dowdily or
badly dressed. An ugly woman with a
good figure and distinguished carriage
will give the Impression of good loo'cs, and
quite eclipse a beauty who has neither, even
to masculine perception, for a man feels
the effect of style, although unable to define
what it really is, and often unwittingly
calls it beauty,
"A tallslight woman can make anything
ot herself she chooses," is a sajlng quoted
from a great French dressmaker, which has
"a great deal ot truth in It, although it goes
without saying that In addition a woman
must hav e other qualities to bring about this
result.
She must have good taste, perception
and the great knack of putting on her
clothes well, 'which v by the way, is an
art that is not undeT tod by nine women
out of ten. even the famous Worth acknowl
edging that to show really to advantage bis
gowns must be well worn.
"That Is what tries me more than nnj
thtng else," he said one day to a favorite
customer, "to know that my most artistlo
conceptions are dependent upon others, and
may lie completely spoiled by tbo way In
which they are worn."
A plain woman, therefore, need never feel
discouraged if she is clever. By studying
herself and ber possibilities she ran produce
a result which will almost, lr not qultt,
equal beauty, and she has this great ad
vantage that her attractions never .fade,
and are cven'apt to increase, rather than
lessen, as she grows older.
"A pretty woman is loved for a while,
but au ugly woman forever," Is a French
Buying, which must be true, as It has
passed Into a proverb, and which Is com
forting to those who have not the "fatal
gift ot beauty." New York Tribune.

First, neatly line the ribbon with oil silk,

of tbeirminds in tr Ing to keep tneir
hair straight- The wind and the
heat have been plaing havoc with
their locks, and they have come to
the conclusion that something radical In the
way of reform must be cmplovcd. If the
bieCle girl is to escaic theannoyance that
Is the consequence of possev,in a full t ead
ot hair, she mnst do eomc thing quickly.
She Is prepared to do it. for the "lucjcle
bang" has been invented by some ingenious
soul, and the btcde girl will wcarlt.
The "blcCle bang" Is of human hair,
matching that of the wearer, andis fastened
on with numberless diminutive pins, con
cealed amid the meshes of the iKing. so that
there Is nothing to detract from its natural
ness. The hair is treated with a chemical
that prevents it getting out or curl, no mat
ter how moist may be the atmosphere or
bow boisterous the wind. The blcclc girl
says it is tLe best thing that has been In
vented for her benefit for years.
