A DAINTY JEWEL CASE.
Here is a jewel case, dainty enough
and pretty enough for Queen Titaaia
herself. And this is the way it is made*
Take a piece of white kid twelve by five
inches and hem the four edges with yellow
embroidery silk. Make a small bag
of yellow surah silk and stitch it on the
kid veiy firmly. There must be a narrow
yellow cord in the top of the bag so
that it can be drawn tightly together !
and fastened securely. Over this is
painted on the white kid in letters of

Under the bag there is a yellow cushion.
This is very flat; in fact, it can scarcely
be called a cushion at all, but it will be
found a most useful article, as on it are j
put all the stick pins and fancy pins so
dear to the feminine heart. And last
there is a larger silk bag. This can hold
bangles and all large pieces of jewelry.
8ometimes a piece of chamois skin, some
jewelry soap and a small brush are kept
in this bag. Cut another piece of kid
the same size as the tirst. On this paint
either golden rod or daffodils. The two
parts are stitched together with fine yellow
silk. This little jewel case can be;
rolled up so as to occupy very little
space in a grip or trunk, and when
opened it makes a pretty toilet accessory.
A SENSIBLE PLAN.
1 A little story is afloat about what some
call the freak of a wealthy New York
woman, and some dignify it by a more
respectable name. It appears that either
through liking for a time-honoied German
custom or of her own wit and invention
it has occurred to this society
leader to put her daughter, who has just
left a fashionable boarding school, in a
position to learn cerlaiQ domestic accomplishments
respected* in tradition, such
as cooking and mending.
For this purpose she has installed her
in the house of an old friend, dear to her
since her own school daye, but whose ,
husband is the counterpart in real life of i
the country clergyman in fiction, possessed
of a few dollars and mauy children.
No servant is kept in this establishment,
and the wish of the society
woman is that for the space of a year her
daughter shall be her old friend's help,
using the word with the honorable signification
it formerly had in New England.
What will be the issue of this experiment
is a question a number of other
^irls are asking. It is not in any way
likely to set a fashion, and yet it might, i
for the story as told includes several j
sentences about the jewelry and travel

The present season has brought fresh
life to the silk trade. The use of silk
for linings, underdresses, and foundation

which promises to increase rather than

Every well dressed society woman carries

ornamented with emeralds. On the inside

inches long to allow the money to be
put in either side.
Some of the new nets for veils have
dainty true-lover's knots scattered over
them. Another net that is also fashionable
is the spider's web; and one tiny
black spider placed somewhere on the
net, so as to accentuate a favorite dimple
or some peculiarly good point of the
face, produces nearly as quaint an effect
as the patches of Madame la Marquise.
A new fashion in skirts is to make the
front very close fitting, this extending
well round over the hips, and to set the
back fulnes3 in one large full box plait,
with many folds on either side, and to
fasten each side over on to the fronts
with the simulated buttonholes and buttons,
or to trim the edge and place over
the front, as if it really fastened so when
on the wearer.
Flowers no longer figure in the complete
toilet. This is due, probably, to
the misuse of roses, which ruined the
dress and destroyed the beauty of the
figure. Refined women no longer adopt
the huge bouquet for the corsage. Tiny

The Breton peasants make all their

One anecdote relates to his first attendance
at chapel. Great pains had been
taken to make him understand that ho
must sit very still during the service,
and especially must not say a word. He
listened eagerly and in silence to the organ,
but when the priest commenced to
speak the small monarch called out,
"Stop! you must not talk in chapel."
His pictures are common in Europe,
and all of them are pleasing. In one he
is in the chair of state. On a footstool,
before him, are his two sisters, and at his
right hand sits his mother. Standing
before him, in a rich uniform, is one of
the high officers of Spain,who is reading
a long address to his sovereign as solemnly
as if he were in the presence of a
monarch of ripe years. Not only do the
baby eyes stare in surprise at mis interruption
of fun and frolic, but the mouth
also is wide open, while one tiny hand
clutches with all its puny strength the
fingers of his faithful Andalusian nurse,
who stands in waiting behind the monarch's
chair of state.
He is greatly liked bj his people, and
his daily appearace in Madrid with his
sisters, in his little carriage drawn by
four fine mules, always calls out universal
expressions of affection. It is especially
fortunate that his mother is a
woman of good sense, high character
and an exceedingly kind heart. She
was an Archduchess of Austria and is
now Queen Maria Christina, reigning as
regent until her son reaches the age of
sixteen years. She has greatly endeared
herself to the people of her adopted
country by her wisdom and her benevolence.
