DAILY FASHION HINTS.
LADIES' CHEMISE AND CORSET COVER.
Nos. G117-G0311 As every woman knows,
this Is tho lingerie season of the year.
Goods of every dVticriptlon havo been
marked down and this is especially true
of lacos, embroideries and undermusllns.
So women always tako advantage of this
exceptional ' opportunity to lay in the!??
year's supply of dainty Ungerle, either
buying the undergarments ready made or
buying tho goc-is to bo mado at home
from tho latest patterns.
Pretty underwear has always hold rank
among the most prized possessions of wo?
men. Tho dainty and carefully trimmed
ready-made garments are very expensive,
in fact, too high-priced altogether for
those who havo only limited amounts to
epend. Tho cheaper grades do not com?
paro with the homo-mado undergarments.
They are not nearly so pretty nor so dur.
nble. For that reason tho wise woman
buys tho goods and makes them up at
home herself aocordlng to the newest
and best patterns.
Tho chomlse model is one of the new?
est modes. By having the waist and skirt
cut separate, plenty of fulness Is allowed
over the bust, and yet there is no extra
thickness at the waist, Tho skirt por?
tion Is shaped so as to fit as smoothly as
a skirt. Tho two are joined by embroid?
ery beading, through which 'ribbon is run.
This style of chemise Is most satisfactory
nlthougli while being in one piece, it has
the fulness Jnat where it is most needed.
The corset cover is a simple model that
can bo made in almost less timo than It
takes to tell about It, All in ono piece,
only tho finishing touches are needed to
complete tbo garment.

Meredith fell into a long rovorle. He
was thinking of Jocelyn and her dislike
for Durnovo, of the scene In tho drawing
room, of the buegulow at Loango; of a
thousand Incidents all connected with
"How I hate Unit maul" he exclaimed,
at length. "Thank God-he Is dead?be?
cause I should have kill??,' him."
Guy Oscard looked at him with a slow,
pensive wonder. Perhaps ho knew more
than Jack Meredith know himself of thu
thoughts thnt conceived thoso words?so
out of place In that uulot room from
those suavo and courtly lips.
All tbe emotions of his Ufe seemed to
l,r? concentrated into this one day of Jack
Meredith's existence. Oscard'? pr?sence

"So this," hn snld. "is tbe end of Die

"So far us I nm concerned," replied
OScard. with quiet determination, "It

going to look for thai Plateau again."
".Nor 1. I suppose It will he started ns

"I don't think so!"
Oscuri! took hi.? pipe from his lips.
"When Dui novo eamn down to Msala,"
he explained. "h<? bud the sleeping slck

"By ciod!" ejaculated Jack Meredith,
"I never thought of that, Ho gol it up

"Noi ppw ??"
"Whal do' ypu mean, Oscard*?"

Jack Meredith hat forward and rubbed
his two hands vonslvely over his knees.
"So." ho said, "only you and 1 and
Joseph know where thu Slmiaclno Plateau
"That Is so," nnswored Oscard.
"And Joseph won't go bock?"
?'Not If you wero lo give him that ninety
thousand pounds' worth of stuff."
"And you will not go back?"
"Not for nine hundred thousand pounds.
Then, Is a curso on that place.' '
"I believo there is," said Meredith.
And such was tho end of tho great
Simlaclne Scheme?the wonder of a few
seasons, Somo day when the Great Sah?
ara is turned Into an inland sea, when
steamers shall ply where sand now files
before the desert wind, the Plateau may
be found again, Some day, when Africa

NE sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me o'er and o'er;
I am nearer home to-day
Than I ever have been before;
Nearer my Father's house,
Where thc many mansions be;
Nearer the great white throne,
Nearer the crystal sea;
Nearer the bound of life,
Where we lay our burdens down;
Nearer leaving the cross,
Nearer gaining the crown I
But lying darkly between,
Winding down through the night,
Is tlie silent, unknown stream,
That leads at last to the light.
Closer and closer my steps
Come to the dread abysm:
Closer Death to my lips
Presses the awful chrism.
Oh, if my mortal feet
Have almost gained the brink;
If it be I am nearer home
Even to-day than I think;

Let my spirit feel in death,

They sat for nearly two hours In that
room In tho quiet houso In Russell Square,
whero the -cabs do not pass, nnd tholr
conversation was of money. They sat
until thoy had closed tho Slmlnclno ac?
count, never, to. be reopened. They dis?
cussed tho question of renouncement,

that tho gain was rightly theirs, seeing
that the risk had all been theirs. Slaves

Ho rana as ho spoko, and Oscard mado

They went out Into the pasago togeth?
er. Oscard opened tho door and followed
his companion to tho step.
"I suppose," said Meredith, "we shall
meet some timo?somewhere?"
They shook hands.
Jncic Meredith went down the steps
almost reluctantly. , At the foot of the
short flight he turned nnd looked up at
the strong, peaceful form of his friend.

suld Sir John to his servants when he
returned home, "any timo between now
nnd ten o'clock."
The butler, having ? vivid recollection
of uu occasion when l.ady Cantourne was
shown Into tt drawing-roniu whore thore
were no (lowers, mado his preparations
according)"*'! Th? flowers v.vre set out
with that mjiseullno Ignorance of euch
mm tord which brings a smile,?not wholly
of mirth?to a woman's, face. The little
used drawlng-roorn wus broufht under
the notice' of tho housekeeper for that
woman's touch which makes a drawlng
rotn what It Is, It was always ready?
this room, thouph Sir John never eat in
It. But for l?ady Cantoijnjo It was al?
ways more than ready.
Sir John went to th? library and sat
rather weurlly down in the et iff-backed
??hair before tho fire. He began by tak?
ing up the evc?ilng newspaper, but failed
to find his eye-glasos, which had twisted
up in some aggravating manner with his
necktie. So he laid aside the Journal
and gave way to the weakness of looking
Into the fire. ?
Once or twice his Head dropped forward
rather sudenly so that his clean-shaven
chin touched his tie-pin, and this with-'
out a feeling of sleepiness warranting the
relaxation of tbo spinal column. He sat
up suddenly on each occasion and threw
buck his shoulders.
"Almost seems," he muttorod once, "as
it I woro getting to be an old man."
After that he remembered nothing un?
til tho butler, coming in with tho lamp,
said that l^ady Cantcmrne was In the
drawing-room. The man busied himself
with tho curtains, carefully avoiding a
glance In his master's direction. No one
hud ever found Sir John nslecp In a
chair during the hours that other people
watch, and this faithful old servant was
not going to begin to do so now.
"Ah," said Sir John, surreptitiously
composing his collar and voluminous
necktlo, "tbiink you."
He rose, and glunced at the clock. It
was nearly seven. Ho had slept through
the most miserable hour of Mllllcont
At.the head of tho spacious staircase
lie paused In front of the mirror, half
lilflden behind exotics. mTS pressed down
his wig behind either oar. Then ho went
Into the drawing-room.
Lady Cantourne was standing Impa?
tiently on the hearth-rug, and scarcely
responded to his bow.
"Has Jnck been hore?" sho asked.
