FRENCH MODES. Iteaaa Fran Faaatala Un f Styles. Historical circumstances have often played a leading part In dictating styles In dress, and it may be that rem iniscences of Marie Antoinette bare struck a note of fashion of the present. The long ' basqned coats, richly em broidered, which were worn by the wen of the period are brought harmo niously Into relief over the frills and simple furbelows of the feminine taste. The season's precise tendencies are varied, especially regarding the skirt. There is a diversion In the skirt which will cause the present style to be con sidered more practical for the fashion f the day. The long, sweeping style will make way In some cases to the short skirt. It will certainly be welcomed with pleasure by those who promenade and enjoy the pleasure of walking exercise, but it Is doubtful whether the uujorlty of Parlsiennes will ever . adopt this mode for all occasions. The long, graceful folds, so becom ingly held up by Frenchwomen, will not be entirely discarded, for the lengthening and graceful effect Is natu rally appreciated by petites personnes. The voluminous and long skirt Is decid edly not as practical for general wear as a costume made to clear the ground. A notable feature in all the new mod els Is evidence of a tendency to a rath er shortening than lengthening effect, although there is but one bouse at pres ent which Is endeavoring to promote the revival of a typical short walking cos tume. Whether the np to date loaders of fashion will take this up remains to be seen when all Parlsienne elegantes have returned to continue their social duties. Long, flowing flounces will decidedly hold their own for large salon recep tions and toilettes de soiree. One point In favor of the attempt to shorten which may be worthy of notice is In the textures and materials being thick and rough surfaced, almost necessitat ing a let. voluminous skirt for prome nading. Laces, guipures, passementeries, em broideries, braids and furs will adorn all chic and dressy costumes d'au tomne. Especially In vogue is the Ve netian guipure for deep pointed and square tabbed collars. SILK pat6hwork. A. Pretty Pattern For an Art That . Kever Gon Qalte Oat of Fmkiaa. While patchwork has for some years past been to a certain extent a "lost art." it has never quite gone out of use, as many pretty coverlets and sofa cush ions could testify. Now silks and vel vets are again to be more than ever worn, and this satisfactory way of dis posing of the many pieces that are too I i 1 1 1 . . ; n. :! .U' .1 ' 'VB - a mmwm w KFFKCI1VB PATCHWORK DESIGN. beautiful for the, base fate of the rag bag is likely to have a renewed vogue. The set design Illustrated Is a simple and exceedingly effective way of using pieces large or smalL In this example ilk pieces are sewed on to squares of linen. Those forming the background should be of a uniform dark color, the others forming the pattern In good con trasting shades. The background may extend under the crossed design, thus giving additional thickness. It will be noticed that .the crossed pieces are laid down on the principle of m child's "pancake" of cards, the cor ners overlapping one another. It looks well to arrange the pieces in pairs as to shade, the two dark and the two light opposite each other. Fasten them down securely with strong herringbone stitch. When the octagonal pieces are join ed. It will be found that small, lozenge Shaped spaces of linen are left at the corners. These look best If filled in With some bright, uniform color. Food Value of Nuts have a considerable food value, according to the investigations made by the United States department of agriculture. They form a very con centrated food and should therefore be eaten with inere bulky food. They are rich In fat. chestnuts differing from other kinds In containing a large percentage of carbohydrates or starchy material. 1'eanuts are very rich in protein, or muscle building and blood enriching material. The reputation nuts have of indigestibility is owing probably to the fact ihat they are usually eaten as dessert or between meals when the stomach has already received enough nourishing food. It Is generally believed that salt renders .nuts more digestible. Sklrtleta. or Old Style Paataiets. Something approaching the old fash ioned pantalets has just made its ap pearance In the shops, says the New York Sun. Elaborately filled and flourje cd miniature petticoats these innova tions are. one for each leg. Sometimes they are attached to silk or satin knick erbockers. Then, again, they fasten with elastic Just above the knee. The effect is unspeakably ludicrous, but the skirt lets will undoubtedly contribute much to the swish and flare of the np to da'ja skirt. MrMiMiHir:s:iiiiitaif fi Wit I M j A Metart Fra Xatara. Among the useful results of aerial excursions are the satisfactory experi ments In the war of echoes and re verberations. John Mackenzie Uacos has many opportunities of testing the carrying of sounds to and from a bal loon at a great height, and Mr. Wise, the American aeronaut, relates a case In point. , He was ballooning one day abeve a dense cloud stream when he heard a cow bell and the sounds of a wood chopper's ax, whereupon, to attract the attention of the laborer, he hbouted "Hellor lie was iuiuiediauly .'.u swered by another "Hello" from tie ground. He then asked the question, "now far is this from Lancaster?" and was annoyed by being mocked by bis own words. "Being in the clouds." he says, "and not able to see things libov-s or below, I felt somewhat nettled ut this clownish display of wit, and in a very audible tone of voice, while the foregoing was still reverberating In my ear, I sang out, 'You're a fooir which in a very few seconds was answered by an equally distinct and measured tone of voice, 'You're a fool" "Then it suddenly flashed upou my mind that it was the echo of my own voice, which opinion was ratified by the dying reverberations of my words, which had now become as numerous as though a whole regiment had caught the watchword and were passing it In quick succession through the whole line- Orderly Habit. "It is a curious fact." commented a man recently, "that almost no mother realizes the Importance of bringing her son up to orderly habits. She impresses upon her daughters from the time they are old enough to recognize any re sponsibility the necessity to keep their rooms tidy, put away articles after use and care for their belongings at all times. The boy, however, is exempt from any similar requirement not only in his own room, but throughout the house. He roads nevsp;'ier3 ami throws them on the floor, gets up from a divan leaving the cushions packed and shapeless, without the slightest re proof, the only notice taken of the oc currence. Indeed, being to ask a sister, if lie lias one. to pick up the one and straighten the other. The women of the family follow in his footsteps aL' day long, removing whatever disorder he creates. Yet there Is no business occupation upon which that boy will presently en ter In which order is not a fundamental necessity. Gir!s. cn the other hand, do not, as a rule, suffer so seriously from a lack of order, or at least consequen ces are not so continually disagreeable and costly as Is the case with boys." New York Post. Sare Proof. When France and Germany were at war, an Englishman was arrested by the French and accused of being a German spy. A letter dated "Berlin" and signed by his mother was found upon him. He was tried by drumhead court martial and condemned to be shot. On the way to the place of execution he said that he had left something be hind and Insisted on going back for it. "You can't go back." was the reply. "You are about to he shot." "I can't help that." said he. "I have left something, and I must get It." "What have you left?" "My umbrella." That settled It. He was released. No cne but an Englishman, said his cap tors, could be such : a thoroughgoing Imbecile as that. Tele of a Dornoiic. This tear compelling tale Is from the London Globe: "A young lady bought a dormouse. After keeping It for some time she had occasion to send a pres ent to a friend and utilized the dor mouse for that purpose. A few months later the friend wrote to say that the pet did not seem very lively and was refusing its food. Would she come and inspect It? She came and inspected It and finally, feeling that this was a case for professional opinion, called In a vet. The vet's verdict was brief and to tie point. The dormouse had been dead just six months." Advice About Health. Don't worry about your health. Moro people make tbetnstlves ill by doing that than is generally supposed.

In the case of round shoulders the muscles of the back are likely to stiffen from disuse. A special exercise to get them Into a limber condition seems to be necessary. Stretch out and down with the arms until they nearly touch the floor, bending back in like manner. To successfully accomplish the latter sit on a stool before an upright piano or heavy desk, plant your knees firmly against the furniture until you have a good support, then slowly bend back ward with your hand pointed over your head. At first you think yon will surely crack In half, so stiff are the muscles, but astonishingly soon comes the pliability, and as It is impossible to fail your progress is easy and rapid. This exercise if persisted in will straighten out a curved spine, but it must be done gently and with patience, because the tendons in the back are delicate and must not be coereed. The Lnstroas Pearl. Pearls, aa most readers know, are small bodies found either in the mother of pearl shells or those with a nacreous lining. They are formed either by a disease, by the presence of a parasite or by an effort on the part of the mol lusk to rid itself of some, foreign sub stance which has found Its way into the sbelL Pearls are composed of many layers of carbonate of lime with organic mat ter between and are not always pearly throughout and invariably have some small central core or nucleus. Round pearls of fine luster and color are very valuable, and their value Increases rap Idly with their size. Darlaa; Wasps. "Wasps were the first paper makers," said an entomologist. "It is very inter esting to study the ways of these fierce little insects. For the sake of a grab at the honey store a single individual will sometimes face a v.l.-i.le hive of bees, being in fair combat a ui2;t !i for any three inhabitants of the apiary. Most of us have had experience of the fearlessness with which they will at tack human beings." Fire Flchlisa la England. In the smaller places in England horses have to be borrowed for the fire engines. Often thirty to fifty minutes are wasted in getting horses, which, when an alarm of fire was given, wen' at work at their daily duty. A consid erable amount of time is also lost in finding proier harness for them. Tht horsing of steam engines iu count"; districts is a very difficult problem. How tbe Lover Looks at the f-Mre.

If a millionaire's blood be impure, his wealth can't preserve him from the skin eruptions which usually indicate the blood's impurity. And if either king or millionaire wants to be cured, he has to use the means open to the poorest person in the land. There is no royal road to health, more than to learning. ALL PEOPLE ARE ALIKE. Since we are all alike, flesh and blood, then what cures disease of flesh and blood in one case should cure it in any case under similar conditions. That was the argument of the man who was bed fast and the sequel proved it to be sound and logical. "Quite a number of years ago, when I was a girl at home, my father was pros trated upon a bed of sickness," writes Mrs. P. M. Whe-ler, of No. 2 Ann Place, Bradford, ! a. .is had rheumatism nd a compile ' in of troubles which baffled the skill ji ..iree of our best physicians. All through the winter months he lay upon his bed, suffering severely at times with rheumatism in his limbs. While in this condition a pamphlet containing a description of Ih-. Pierce's remedies fell into his hands. I do not remember whether it was left at the door or came through the mails, but I do remember of his sitting up in bed and reading it through and then exclaiming, That medicine is just what I need ! Send for a bottle at once ! ' Just then a neighbor came along who was going to town (we lived in the country, five miles from the nearest drug store) and we sent for a bottle of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical liiseovery. We laid aside the doctor's medicines and commenced giving my father the ' Golden Medical Discovery ' according to directions. The first three days he felt worse, as is often the case. Afler that he commenced to gain. His physician was surprised at the change in IWUkiVL I rl his condition and candidly admitted that the Golden Medical Discovery was do ing more for him than be had been able to do. In less than two weeks ruv father was up with his clothes on. He con tinued taking the medicine and in a short time was well, and ever afterward loud in his praise of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery as he told of the wonderful Cure it performed in his case. " You may publish this if you desire to do so. I have no doubt but that many will read it who will remember the cir cumstances perfectly well." Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has an unsurpassed record as a blood purifving medicine. Not only does it cure rheumatism but diseases in general which have their cause in an impure condition of the blood, such as eczema, scrofula, erysipelas, boils, pimples, ul cers, sores, "etc. The cures effected by " Golden Medical Discovery " are perfect and ptrmanent. Some medicines drive the surface symptoms of disease in, in stead of out;thev cover disease but do not cure it. " Golden Medical Discovery drives out of the blood the corrupting; not sons and impurities whict cause disease, and it establishes the body in sound health. A SPRING MEDICINE. Because of its blood pu rifying power ami tonic qualities," Golden Medical Discovery" is an ideal spring medicine. There is no alcohol in the " Dis covery " and it is entirely free from opiates and nar cotics. It does not stimu late, but imparts real strength and permanent vigor. "It gives me much pleasure to testify to the merits of Dr. " Pierce's Golden Medical Discov ery," writes Miss Annie Wells, of Fergussons Wharf, Isle of Wight Co.. Va. " I can say honestly and candidly that it is the grandest medicine ever compounded for purifying the blood. I suffered ter ribly with rheumatism, and pimples on the skin and swelling in my knees and feet so that I could not walk. I spent alout twenty dollars paying doctors' bills but received no benefit, A year or two ago I was reading one of your Memorandum Books and 1 decided to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and Favorite -Prescription, and am entirely cured." Sometimes a dealer tempted by the little more profit paid on the sale of less meritorious medicines will offer the cus tomer a substitute as being "just as good" as the "Discovery." It is better for him because it pays better, but it is not as good for you, if you want the medicine that has cured others.
