Plnmaffo For Winter Millinery.
Acording to the Millinery Trade Re
view, ostrich plumes enrich many of
the Paris pattern hats, and will be
extensively used in the decoration of
hats turned out by our own milliners,
despite their increased expensiveness
because of the war in South Africa.
Long feathers will sweep around the brims
of the large hats, art coming i
to the assistance of nature if the j
plume grown on the wing of the bird i
should lack in length flbrlbe modiste's j
lemand; abundant use will be found
or demi-long plumes on Hats of every
inscription in vogue; and tips will
lold up brims, and otherwise appeal
n the garnishing of fashionable hats.
Mountings of small tips supplenented
by a wisp aigrette will con
inue to trim bonnets. Compromises,
lowever, in respect of cost, will be
ound in the use (instead of ostrich)
if the long plume made of the feathers
>f the goose, the turkey, the duck, the
hicken and the barnyard fowls gen.'rally,
and plumes of all varieties of
)heasants will be in exceptionally
ligli favor. Breast mountings, pomions
and quills were as notable in the
ecent as in the earlier millinery exlositions,
with the neigeoir treatment
?f plumages, the painting, stenciling,
lotting and spangling heretofore reaarked
upon, and wmgs are coming
gain into notice.
Slippers Are Much Worn.
Quite the most pronounced fad that
iss been taken up for some years is
hat for slippers. They are worn at
ill times, even for traveling, and
hey have almost ousted low shoes,
xcept for hard use. There seems
10 explanation of how it began, but
he fact remains that ill order to be
a it a woman must have a pair of
lack, high-tongued slippers for genral
wear. They take the place of nice
)w shoes. Wide buckles are a feature
f them, and any metal is correct,
lthough silver is the favorite. With
liem are worn either very open-work
lack stockings or fancy colored ones.
A Coquettish Little Garment.
A smart bolero of Irish point lace
s made double breasted and the ampliade
in width atones for the excessive
bortness of a coquettish little garment.
This Is fastened on the left
Ide with three flat buttons about the
Ize of a penny and gleaming like
uinea gold. Three seems to be the
anonical number for these beautiful
istenings. They look like golden penies
and have none of the superficial
spect of cheap gilt buttons.
The Sandal Slipper.
r?no two or three straps adox'u the
lodish sandal slippers.
A Favorite Shlrl Waist.
The shirt "waist that closes at the
aek is a recognized favorite, and
i'omises to extend its vogue for many
lonths to come. The admirable May
lanton model illustrated is suited to
ilk, velteteen, corduroy, flannel, cashiere,
albatross and all waist ruateials,
but in the original is made of
rhite flannel with tiny gold buttons
The -lining fits snugly and smoothly,
nd is desirable for all light weight
wols and silks, but can be omitted
fhen heavier materials are used or
or any reason it is not desired. The
ront of the waist proper is laid in
mall bos pleats that are stitched
eepest at the centre and grow shortr
as they approach the arm-eyes,
ach of which is held at the end by
hree small buttons. The five pleats
t the back are stitched for their enire
length and form groups of two at
ach side of the centre, where the closig
is effected by means of buttons and
uttonholes. The sleeves are in bishop
tyle, with pointed cuffs that match
he novel treatment of the collar.
To make this waist for a woman of
aedium size four and a quarter yards
if material twenty-one inches wide,
A rOPULAB SHIRT WAIST.
;hree and a half yards twenty-seven

Plunging through the drifted enow.

Though His beard is white as winter by

Woe! woe! gate of sin,
Lo! the treacherous wayside inn,
With its tempting wiles to win
The strong feet that on that threshold
hence their slow death march begin
Gloom! gloom! in the air
A white darkness everywhere;
Storm has started from its lair,
And the poor belated woodman reels and

Cold! cold! far away,
Light of fire or light of day,

Pressed against the window pane,
Pallid faces look in vain,
While the wretch who made them orphans

Drink and Young Criminals.
The National Conference of Charities
[ and Corrections in session recently in
! Washington gave prominent recognition
to the terrible increase of criminals, the
appalling growth of the population of our
penal institutions. A paper read before
the conference by Mrs. Ophelia Amigh,
Superintendent of the State Home for
Juvenile OfFenders at Geneva, 111., casts
valuable light upon this important question.
Mrs. Amigh is reported as saying
that every girl now in the home under her
care had one drunken parent, and in the
case of many of them ooth parents were
confirmed drunkards. Mrs. Amigh says:
[ "If we desire to raise fine stock we
never think of keeping the sires and dams
drunk all or half the time, and yet nearly
all the children who come to us are the
products of such conditions."
She goes on to say:
"One has to sit but one day in the Juvenile
Court in Chicago to realize what it
*** ?11" all lrir*<4o r\f nrifl
ib luub ma jo aa ftiuuo v*. j?
nal institutions in Illinois as well as in
other States. All kinds of crime follow
in the wake of intemperance and something
must be done or we shall become
worse than a nation of lepers."
Mrs. Amigh mentions one particularly
startling instance which has unfortunately
been paralleled many times. She says:
"We had one gir! brought to us not
quite fourteen years of age who had delirium
tremens, and we barely saved her |
life. She had drank more or less since
she was ten years of age. What can we
say of the brute in man's form who would
ever give or sell intoxicants to a child
It might not be irrelevant to ask: What
shall we say of the man who legalizes a
traffic the result of which, by centuries of
experience, is known to be such things a*
hese??The New Voice.
Benefits of Abstinence.
Sometimes in the editorial columns of
a daily paper we have the truth freely set
forth. Take, for instance, the RecordHerald.
of Chicago. The editor of that
paper in commenting upon a remarkable
statement of one Mrs. Carrie Brown in
addressing the Social Economic Club of
Chicago, that "total abstinence is sometimes
worse than intemperance," the editor
among other things says: "Drinking
water satisfies a natural thirst, drinking
whisky an unnatural one. Excess in
whisky drinking produces temporarily or
even permanently a madman, a fool or an
insensible lumj> of blood and bones. Complete
abstention leaves the head clear and
all the bodily functions in a normal condition.
The comparison will not stand a
minute's inspection. Abstention alone may
not make character, but intemperance undoubtedly
weakens the moral stamina, and
it is the opinion of many physicians that
almost any use of alcohol internally is an
abuse of the human system, while abstention
helps toward virility and good health.
The theory that spirituous liquor is a food
necessity is now absolutely untenable, and
there are not a few people who hold that
it is not even a medical necessity."
Germany Cursed by Drink.
In an article in the Kreutz Zeitung,
warmly advocating temperance and the
disuse of alcohol 111 the army and navy.
th*; writer brings forward remarkable statistics
in support of his plea. In 120
army prisons throughout Germany fortyeix
per cent, of all the murderers committed
their crime while under the influence
cf drink. Sixty-three per cent, of
the cases of manslaughter, seventy-four
per cent, of serious injury to the person
and seventy-seven per cent, of criminal immorality
ara due to the same cause. In
the navy, out of 1071 punishable cases during
the last six years, seventv-iive per
cent, of the most serious cases nave been
due to drunkenness.
The Work of a Busy Man.
One of Boston's leading manufacturers,
whose large business interests demand much
of hiB time and thought, yet feels as if he
must do something for temperance, has for
some years given special attention to the
inculcation of temperance among the
young, particularly young men. He believes
in circulating the piedge after every
i r\ KlC rtlVn nPHPtlPA
uses the pledge freely and has taken thousands.
In a letter to the National Advocate,
he says: "I expect to take 2000
pledges during the year 1901, mostly
men; one Sabbath I took between 300 and
400, average age, twenty-one."
The Crusade in Brief.
In Grinnell, Iowa, it is now unlawful for
two people to "congregate" to drink beer.
According to insurance statistics teetotalers
may expect; seventeen years more
iiie than drinkers.
The French Chamber of Deputies has
passed a law forbidding the manufacture
and sale of alcoholic drinks pronounced
dangerous by the Academy of Sciences.
One of the most conspicuous buildings
in Los Angeles, Cal., is Temperance Temple.
Temperance Temple was erected in
1889, on the corner of Broadway and
Temple street, upon a lot of ground do
liatcd by the Good Templars.
A drinking man among the employes oi
the operating department of any of the

Liquor dealers make a big parade of the
revenue they pay toward the support oi
the Government. But the question is
who foot the bills? Venders do not pay
a dollar of this revenue only so far as they
are consumers, while those who buy and
drink the liquor pay it all.
Homes ruined, widows and orphans bewailing
and unprovided for; wives living
pictures of misery and unhappiness; criminals
increasing and becoming barefaced,
and diseases multiplying and becoming
acute and complicated?such are the fruits
we are reaping at the hands of liquor, this
instrument in the hands of the devil.
