ICOPTHIonT, 1896.1 The modern edition of the struggle hetwoen David and Goliath i.> interest? ing. Goliath is the big hut, David i the little bonnet. For the moment, ?while spring winds blow, David hns bis innings: in a few weed,--, when the sun gets hdt. it Will be Goliath's turn. Tho prettiest of the little bonnets are three-cornered and are woru with a point behind and ouo over each ear. They call them Mary Queen of Scots shape. But the beautiful queen wore something far more simple and demure. The flu do slcole pirl perches her trian? gular scrap so far bach upon her head that no Philadelphia lawyer could guess how she keep-- it on. Sin- has to have u speciul kind of veil puckered over tho waves of hair iu f rout of it, and to make it perfectly evident that the bonuoJ) i.? ea saucy as it is binall blouses. Not that there were not other ' t!iing< worthy of consideration. The table was decked with white narcissu .. tied in long-stemmed bunches with blue ribbons. The pale stem, greeu, blue ;inj white, made a delight fill spring combination. The room was, hung with green ami blue, with touches of scarlet here and there for enlivrnment. A notable blouse was striped with pink und gold. Itwnsmadeof a deli? cate China silk, with uncommonly full bishop sleeves. Blue and gold rosettes dotted it down the front, and were its only trimming. A very slight dark jfirl with brilliant eyes wore a blouse of pink silk with a yoke of skirted white chiffon. From this yoke fell a full front of white gauze, gathered in with ribbon at the belt, and lotting the fiink silk shino through il rosily. A strikingly handsome woman wore a bright tartan blouse of red and black with a black r.illc shirt. The blouse was ?>;vn ul the neck, or turned back, rather, to show a white gamp of tucked lace and muslin. A irir! In a tail-colored frock wore a tan-colored silk blouse with dark green velvet belt and embroidered front of cream and ecru, with bright Dresden flowers. Tho nui&t navel blouuc in evidence "got i.4Tn." she lias long-stemmed roses of gay tulips standing out far from the sides of it, and butterfly wings of spangled lullo. Tho most Interesting big hat 1 have seen wue worn by a big brown-eyed girl at the tlrst of this year's out-of door tons. It was, of course, pale green straw, and bad a wide flat brim all around. Under the brim and above her fluffy curls?there are yet curls that fluff by nature and others that nrt mahos to fluff in spite <?f nature, and even of fashion?wore two or throe rows of narrow dark irreen Tclvct. Above the brim was a flaring ruflie <>: black lace that stood out beyond the brim all around. Above tho ruffle were iTmass of mignonettes and a curling black feather. At a pretty lunch this noon 1 studied ?u:- worn by ft picture girl. The world Is coming to know picture girls us it Iocs picture hats and by analogous -.j-r.s. This picture girl's blouse was if soft green silk laid in minute tucki round ai'd round tho waist and sleeves, not up and down. This girl, it ought to be remarked, was very '.slender. II she hadn't heeu her tucks would have ruined dier dress reputation. Across tho bust the Hue of the tucks was broken by a bund of laco insertion, which also ran around the sleeves. With standing eol'.nr of white und greon und Morio Stuart bonnet ot green straw, trimmed with black wings, this nir! got mul deserved considerable feminine attention. The summer girl is going to wear wonderful shoulder collars in laces and embroidery. Von enn call them capes ;"' ' on like, for thav are meant for out I A MAY MODKI? oT door garments, but they are collars, nothing inure nor loss, and miraculous? ly dainty ones. The lust French steam? er Drougnt u cotiucrnsn mtic stnr shaped affair of pale apple-green silk, iovered with black lace net embroi? dered in star designs.

Linen frocks Imported for conn try wear are being shown in the nut ural color and all munncr of pretty light shades. A slim, pure-looking, 1 ?olorlcss blonde, who would remind me of a nun if she put herself in a halo dancer's costume, has a linen frock oi delicate green, lined with the pales', oi yellow silk. The skirt iB six or seven yards round ut the bottom, but is gored So as to tit very closely at the hips. It has a pale green silk blouse, ovei which is worn an Eton jacket of tin linen, corded ubout with green ami yellow. Linen gownsof the natural color have blue, or cream-colored, or pink, sio blouses and the smartest of them an silk-lined. Wurm weather gowns blossom on every baud. In the park this mornillj I noted a tall young woman iu a cloth dress of pale tnu. It had no stiff in? terlining. I fancy, for the days of hair? cloth und gru-sK-oloth und their like seem to bo passing away. It bud one of tho uew skirts daring only from the knees downward, and so cut that th gores lapped over ore another, giving .1 ehance for narrow bands of black ribbon trimmings. The bottom of the skirt was draped with a deep flounce of black Lace and the waist was trimmed with bluek luce insertion bauds. A striped taffeta sillt dross in green aud white, with a ribbon belt and white lace yoke is a quaint ami pretty conception. Fi.i.fv Obboux.

Miss Nannie Robiusou, aged about UO years, sin.*) the death of her father, George Robinson, lost fall, 1ms been run? ning their farm, on Back Oak ridge, six miles north of Hancock, ami a sawmill besides. She is assisted only by her brother Char lea. aged about 15 years. About nine mouths ago her father, moth? er and sister, Letitia, a schoolteacher about 18 years of age, were all stricken with typhoid fever. The lather aud daughter died within a few iLsys of each other. The mother is still lingering, and is in the constant care of Allio, the old eat daughter. A water power sawmill on the farm has been kept going since the father's death. With the assistance of tho hoy, Mi? Robinson cut down trees and battled the logs to the sawmill, where they were converted Into timl>er. Four months were consumed iu logging, aud Miss Robinson cut down most of the trees herself. She put the logs on the mill and personally superintended thu sawing. Most of the framework of tho large warehouse of E, P. L'ohtll, now in course of erection at Hancock, was sawed by htr. Lumber from her mill has been pur chased by dealers iu Hancock. Miss Robinson is u stout young woman and a very energetic worker. She is a splendid horsewoman.
