Tbo brooch or round pin is fust gaining popularity; iinl".d, it is now tho most fash ionable form of neck pins made, although the lnco or bar pin -as the long pin is vuriotisly termed is also in style. A pin to lie culled a brooih nowadays need not conform to any regular size or form, so long as it is short and broad rather than bursbiid it is a brooch. In our illustration we give three popular pat terns In neck pins, two lieing brooches and one a regular bar pin. BIMMX'IIES AND BAIt PINS. Ono simulates, with small gems in a gold setUug, a star and crescent, which, by the by, id a very fioptilar d)sign. Tho other brooch consists of a gold horseshoe with a clover leaf in tho center. Tiiis is also a favorite design. The remaining trinket is a bar pin set with tmall brilliants. If a lady can afford but ono style of pin it is advised that she select a brooch, as the probabilities are that another season the bar pin will lie neurly if not quite out of fashion. Cotton Ilresse for Spring. Tho cotton dresses being prepared for spring and summer wear aro mostly of Scotch ginghams, satteens, In wns and mus lins, trimmed with embroidery, velvet and the corded and looped edge riblionsof smooth silk in preference to those of satin or velvet. The waists of these dresses are basques, or else round waists gathered to a licit, while aomo of the French models are polonaises. Tho basques are shaped like those of stulf j dresses, with darts and side forms, though not made to tit so snugly, aud uro lined j throughout, sometimes with tho dress ma- j terial (ls'ing merely doubled), or in other cases with a plain, solid color of that material if the goods aro at all transparent, while tin; clse satteens have colored sat teen or thin silesia linings that (ire sometimes sup plied with w h-ilelxmes, and finished in every way as a silk or wool dress would be. Tho gingham und lawn basques are made w ith reference to the laundry and may 1 lie without lining or wiih it, as the wearer chooses, and should have the seams pressed open ami overcast. Tho shirred basques will lm worn again, with shirring just in front, of the throat, or else along tho shoulders, and again at the waist line in back and front. Plain basques are short all around, but uro pointed in front end huvu two lxx plaits 1 liinri. Their trimming is open patterned embroidery, s t on as a slender V sh.'qied vest, w ith narrow revers of the emtnoidei v beside it. The collar is turned over and straight, a- are the cuffs of the coat sleeves, or tho wristband of tho shirt sleeves, which are again suggested. The edge of the basque has in it embroidery shiqied to a point in front, wider i the hips, and quite wide in tho back, where it passes under the los tilion pleats. A short square bow of riMsin is on tho left side of the collar, and a larger Ikiw with ends is on the waist line in the back. Small jienrl buttons, nearly flut, with eyes in the centre The skirt and its drapery aro attached to ono belt; the shirt is gored as any foundation skirt is, hemmed plainly, or flnishisl w ith a foot pleating, and has a cushion bustle, and steels. If tiio appearance of a full skirt is desired, there is u full of the material, or of deep embroidery sewed with scant gathers or plaited around this skirt, and the drapery is kng enough to conceal tho upjier part of this fall, which may be half a yard deep, or deeper if n. quired. The overskirt of the dress goods f:iUs in a long pointed apron, with the point turned underneath, and bos square or rounded baeu breadths, with the top droop ing down from the licit in'jioiuts or burnooso folds. The lonr, round overskirt will le worn again, as it. always is. simply hemmed, and canght up on the sides tosuit the liguro of the wearer, i ither in long slender funnel shaped plaits, er for a slight li;ure w ith full fills on tueliips this oveisKi'rt is liked with a very laln low r j-Mrt male of a straight fall tucked ulove a hem, or with rows of insertion niul a Imii in-toad f scailop-.

An excellent way to dust a room Is tolieptn with the walls. Tin or lie several thicknesses of loth over a broom and sweep the walU down thoroughly, leaving at tuoKiuie tuiit all tho door and window open. This matter of sweeping thu walls is an iiiisrt.iut one; if you d'in't Ix'lieve it examine tho cloths after the cleaning has Isvn done. The walls swept dow n.it is next in order to ii oil with a damp cloth the Imeks ot all the picture frames and the tops of the door and window frames. At least once every week get a good draft, wlii.-u will carry tho dust out of tho window; then shake tho curtains and beat all the upholstered furniture, for thi-se aiepiime inner in the matter of lmrUring dust The window sash, bill and glass ought all to receive attention.

Tho present fancy in curtains is for the various styles, qualities and patterns that come under the general head of "Madras goods." Homo of the new crepe Madras goodx hnvo tine tinsel in the tiniest Hocks, but this is not regarded -as in any sense a novelty, it having apcurcd last season. The arrange ment of the metal is somewhat novel, ami for this and for tike exquisite combination and blendin-' of the many tints tho new goods are worthy of the highest praKv The favorite colors are of a somewhat sub dued order. Urow n in almost every shade, tho entire range of olive, myrtle and sago greens, copier, mandarin and every shade of yellow, n very little light blue, dashes of red mostly verging on garnet, rosewood and maroon, old rose, or faded rse as it is called, brick color and all of the variations of these shades are found in tho best assortments of these goods that are now coming from foreign looms. A new fifty inch all silk grenndiuo curtain stuff in fancy weave is attracting deserved attention. It is shown in ull colors, the gold and ecru tints lieing the most desirable.

There was an exceptionally elegant dinner party in Vanity Fair one night last week. Tho tablecloth wusof white suliu edged with lace, and across the center, forming an X, were blue plush scarfs with fringe of gold. Four silver stands with branch' s on all sides, which, however, were not symbolical of family tiivs or genealogy, held fruits or corpu lent candles, on which wore colored silk shades. The china, ylass and silver ware wns exquisite, iHissiblv remnants of Eugenie's pantry, and at each plat." was a "favor" that came from a most noted silversmith and jeweler. There was music by an orchestra, "concealed," as u-ual. behind a screen of ex pensive flowers, and when the finger Imwls came they were of hammered silver, filled with iorfume, on which floated, of all flowers, violets! Subsequently (i "hired woman" read poetry when the company hail adjourned to the drawing rooms, and largo bouquets of cut flowers were brought for the ladies to carry home with them. "It cost 1, ODD if it cost a cent," said a man of calculating turn of mind who was present. Vent Hut Inn Without Draught. The following cheap and simple method has been found very satisfactory in solving the troublesome problem how to secure fresh uir in a room without exposing the inmates to draughts. Nail or screw a neat strip of wood from one to two inches wide uxin the window sill just insido the sash and extending across the window. Upon the top of the strip fasten a piece of 'weather strip," so that there will lie formed an air tight joint lietween tlx? weatherstrip and the lower sash of the win dow, whether the latter is closed or raised an inch or two, the lower cross pieeo of the sash sliding on the niblior of tho weather strip as the sash rises. With this fixture the lower sash may lie raised enough to admit air lie tween the lower and upper sashes without ad mitting the least air at the Isittom of the window. The air thus entering is throw n up ward and has its "chill taken off' lief ore de scending upon the heads of the occupants of tho room. ISreukfiiNt MtiflliiK.

Serving Plnenpple A pool way to serve pin--np; !- rsjeciull, wlu-n a little tough, ns is not to be the case with this fruit at the north, is t cut it into dice, saturate tlne wiih sugar und a little wine if desired, nnd pile tnem up in a plow dish, with a row of sjsjnge cake slices ot laJy fingers around the side PHYSIOLOGY AND HYGIENE. Fact, Theories and Ktperlments ! Kverjr Day Lilts Dr. Htilnmnn, of tlermany, lectured re cently on the dangers of living in new bouses. According to him, the close fitting of now doors, window sashes and floor prevents the entrance of fresh air from tho outside, while the moisture lathe pores of new plastering obstructs the transpiration of nir through them. For these reasons, together with the consumption of oxygen and formation of car bonic acid in inhnbited rooms, he recom mend that no dwelling be occupied till its walls ore thoroughly dried, w hich may take a year or two. To hasten tho process he ad vis." burring charcoal in the rooms, Tho carUmic acid thu formed changes ths hydrate of limo in the plastering tocarlsm ate, and sets free the wuter of hydration which tills the Kin ot the plastering, until nil of it cvaNirates. Other authorities, How ever, rate the danger of a new bouse less high than does Dr. Hulumiin, provided efficient ventilation is supplied. Iun't ho Afraid of Cold Air. Many iM'ixms are afraid of cold air, especially at ni;;ht. They shut themselves in close lied rooms where their systems aro poisoned and gradually undermined by breathing the bad nir. The benefit of air that is cold a well as pure has an enthusiastic advocate in IV. Oswald. He claims that the remedial influence of fresh air is much in creased by a low temiieraturo; so much in creased that colds are, in fact, more curable in mid winter than in mid summer, fold, according to Dr. Oswald, is on antiseptic and a powerful digestive stin ulunt. DysjK psia, catarrh and fevers of all kinds ,tm lie frozen out of the sjstem. Not by letting the patient shiver in a snow lmnk, but by giving him an extra allowance of warm bed clothing, with the additional luxury of breathing ice cold oir, which, under such circumstances, ,,lie comes as pivferablo to hot miasma, as cold Sluing water to warm ditch water." Tho lnst brain work, according to the authority quoted from, can ! done in a cold room. Sleep a Preventive f DUense. People have very generally learned the ls son that natural sleep is the liest medicine of the sick. A scientific w riter now calls atten tion to its power as a preventive of disease. He remarks, as an instance, that slWp taken at the right moment, will prevent an attack of nervous headache. If the subjects of such headaches will watch its coming, they will find that, it U-gius with a feeling of weariness or heaviness. This is the time the sleep of all hour, or even two, as nature guides, will ef fectually prevent the headache. If not taken just then it will he too late. After the attack is fairly under way, it may U impossible to get to sleep till far into tho night. Lemon Cure for Iloumi'iiens. Hot lemonade, taken just U-fore retiring, is a well known remedy for a cold in its first stages. Everybody is not familiar, however, wiih the lemon cure for nn acute attack of hourseiii'ss. For this purjxiso first roast a lemon in the oven, turning it now and then that all sides may be equally cooked. It should not crack or burst, but bo soft all through. While the lemon is still very hot, cut apiece from the top, fill with ns much sugar as it will hold and eat on going to bed. One IMity of a Sick Nurse. Anxiety about the patient, the confinement and the fatigue of the sick room, all combiuo to rob a nurse of uptictito. Still, as a matter of duty, the nurse should take light, nourish ing ftsid at stated intervals, and never go near a sick person w hile feeling exhausted. Always take something ls-foro entering tho sick room, after absence for rest or exercise. This is most important to lxith mu ses and visitors of the sick, esiiecinlly in Inflations cases, and materially diminishes the chances of infection. SOCIAL ETIQUETTE. Manner niwl Custom Practiced In Po lite Society. There are many pooplo well fitted for the best society but for ignorance of points of table etiquette, which, though trifles in them selves, are, on tho whole, of infinite imvirt anee. For instance, where these requirements are not known, if a general cessation of con versation should suddenly occur iKin serving the soup, would there lo silence in the place? Not at all; the gap would lie filled with a continuous bubbling sound from the mouth of some unlucky wight whose mother never taught him to take soup properly. Fortu nately, a littla instruction and observation of tho table manners of the well bred enable ono to overcome failings like these. No one ueed be put to disadvantage by them long. Fork ami Spoon. Whether the fork ought to be usisl in eating all swis'ts, except custards, or whether it i liettcr to use a spoon where slipis-riness is an element, furnishes one of the battle grounds of writers on etiquette, in practice some people bunt their ice, for example, with a fork. Some sti. k their trident, into jelly, at the risk of seeing the w hole thing slip oir liko an amorphous, trnnsluivnt snake. Tho same with such compounds us custard puddings, where it is a feat of skill to skewer the separ ate morsels, and a small sea of juice is left on ti e plate. This monotonous use of the fork anil craven fear of Miosmou looks like mere snobliery, says good authority. It is a well known English axiom that the fork is to be Used in preference tn tho spoon when ossibht and convenient. I!ut to use it when scarcely possible anil decided y inconvenient shows u very great fear of .Mrs, Grundy. The pirst to be Served at Tulile. Opinions vary ns to who should 1st served first nt table. Some persons in fashionable society insist llist tho hostess shoul i ls first attended to. It h.is Im-cii Miintsl out, how. ever, that this fa-hion originated in ancient tims when the hospitable custom of mi.sou ing was in vogue und guests preferred to .see the hostess partake of each dish In-fore ventur ing themselves. Poisoning except by ri'il pastry nnd the like U-iug not now in order, it. is generally concedi-l that when there is but ojo attendant, t he lady guest sitting at tse right of the host, or the oldest lady, should be served first. As soon as tho second p i son i beljsil there need bo no further waiting lefore eating. Answering an Invitation.

OsSAn. At the commencement of the last century, owing to overvaluation of silver in France, the heavy silver coins rapidly disapieared from circulation in Oreat llritain, only the light nnd worn ones (often 'S jht cent. Udow the standard) remaining. The government underUmk to reeoin the entire remaining and worn silver, and to make it full weight with out raising its value. This only facilitated its export and rendered itscireiilntion more diffi cult at home; the real value of the coins being so uncertain thai the guinea fluctuated in price, as measured by silver, from 'Jls, M. to 30s. It w as therefore, in 1774, declared that silver should no longer 1 a tender, ex cept by weight, beyond A'iV The amount due, as you have stated, was to be paid with out reference to this, or in accordance with the old tender.
