vt PAGE TWO sf\ THE OLD TIMES. The long I dare not sing, for fear Leat falling suddenly. The sounds of weeping, should replace The tones of melody. The name which ever In my heart Must still, unspoken be The summer flowers, the song of birds All tell, all tell of thee. Wander in the woods and pluck -The wild flowers from their bed Which oft In love, I've garlanded Around thy beautious head. Beloved, heaven's coronals Adorn thy sainted brow, Aid' the sweet strains of angels Are the songs thou hcarest now. The new namn of Hod's chosen ones, Who bravely overcame. Now takes the place forever, Of the dear familiar name. Send one ray from the glory To ease my spirit's pain For my human heart Is yearning For the old times back again. —Charlotte E. Nelson. Empire costumes arc the rage in Paris. New is the moire effect in very sheer stuffs and exceedingly chic frocks they make, too. The vogue of the princesse gown aad' the clinging upper skirt lines are filing the over-plump women with an xiety. Figured radiums in small close flowered designs are predominating among some of the most exclusive im portations. 7 White surah, a twill surah with high satin finish has been well liked this winter and promises to figure again this spring. Clair de lune silks finely striped in all the delicate pastel shades are among the loveliest of the regulation summer silks so far. Ottoman silk has been revived, with a chiffon softness of course, and is being used for handsome frocks in connection with heavy laces. White net is unusually popular of late and many of the younger mem bers of society are wearing simple lit tle frocks of this dainty material trimmed with shirred or plain whitfe satin ribbon. To accomplish the clinging robes which are the fetish of the hour, Parisians have been geing to all sorts of extremes in doing awy with all pos sible under fulness, even to leaving off petticoats. The pronounced vogue of the rather heavy satins, such as duchess and chiffon faille militated against the gossamer silks which were somewhat of a disappointment to the manufac turers this winter. The very newest and smartest thing in the spring season's long list of tads and fancies is the lingerie para sol. They are lovely beyond descrip W .m. 1 'i -A 1? V'V1 \, rt "Sew Department." Another whim of fashion this sea son is the short sleeve for all manner of- garments. The weather boss is good to us here by keeping the tem perature up, else we might have chil blains on our elbows and as it is the suffering from exposure is acute. Long sleeves to the wrist are not seen on women at all smart. Most of them barely turn the elbow, and many stop a short way above it These abbre viated sleeves are an excuse for any amount of fussy frivolity in the way of frills and flounces, which, in connec tion with the long raousquetaire gloves, suggest legs and feet rather than arms and hands.

It is said that the young king of Spain is very much in love with his bride to be, Princess Ena, the young Princess of Battenburg, and it will in deed be a love match based on strong mutual affection. It's "Alice blue" and the "Long worth tie" now, to be up-to-date. Man is inclined to take woman as he finds her, when she is pretty, and I wouldn't have supposed that in the ballroom, where she looks her best, he would be in any sort of doubt about taking her as he found her and putting his arm around her for a waltz. For years uncounted the mas culine hand has found its place at some point on the feminine backbone below the lower ribs and above *he hip joint. But this winter the new style of Empire gown puzzles him as to his dancing partner's anatomy by obliterating her waist and leaving him in.doubt where to locate his palm. Is he to follow his habit, or the evidence of his eyes? The apaprent belt level used to be just above her hips. Now it seems to be just under her shoulder blades. »«. 1 MipbOM* BTri-Stat tion and as costly as they are beauti ful.

An exchange says when the new Japanese ambassador comes to Wash ington his romantic history will ap peal strongly to the American lover of romance. The wife of the ambas sador is not a Japanese, but comes of an autocratic German family and she suffered social ostracism in her own country when she married an Oriental. When she first met the ambassador he was under secretary of the Japan ese legation at the court of Berlin and her father was a minor court of ficial. The marriage was a love af fair and the old Kaiser would not allow her to be received at court and her husband was recalled to Japan. He has become useful to the emperor and now occupies one of the highest honi'8 in his power, that of Japanese ambassador to America. His name is Viscount Aoki, and It will be watched with interest how the German lega tion will receive the viscountess. There will be no doubt of her re ception by the Americans.

Neither Major Sumner nor Colonel Ellsworth was tall,. and, as they stood beside Lidcoln on the rear platform, while he made his address,, they looked shorter than they really—were. At the close of Lincoln's short speech, a coal heaver icalled out: "Abe, Ahey say you are the tallest man in the United States, but I don't believe you are any taller than I am." Lincoln replied: "Come up here and let us measure/' The coal heaver pressed his way through the crowd and climbed on the platform, where Lincoln and he stood back to back. Turning to Colonel Ellsworth, Lincoln said: "Which is' the taller?" Colonel Ellsworth, being so much shorter, could not tell, so he climbed on the guard rail, and, put ting his hand across the top of the heads of the two men, said:, "I believe they are exactly the same height." Then Lincoln and the coal heaver turned around and faced each other.
