YACHTING GOWNS. the marine: giri, of -no as en trancing CREATURE. VARIETIES IN VESTS. 1 They Are Mode of Grass Lnsvn. ' White nnd lllnck Net nnd Chiffon The Bolero Mode. NEW YOKK, June 12.—The yachting ' girl of '96 promises to be a gorgeous crei- I lure, quite ec'tpalng her biking and gol.*- : Ing slaters. Vests, coats and hats are the moat prominent features of the marine ; girl's wardrobe, and In view of her en- - trancing costumes, i; is quite a pity tha: ' there will be no international race this | year for the America's cup and a conse- , ajuent opportunity to parade them before ta extencive audience. Many striking and effective contrasts In wroustht out with the variety in vests, which transform the simple coat into a very becoming costume. Grass lawn vests ! are o.'e of the novelties this season, made of the very cheer quality over silk and j trimmed with colorej a: 1 1 ecru embroider ies and yellow lace. White and black net . ■nd chiffon, with cream lace applique. I make pretty vests, and then there are white tucked muslin, trimmed with rtar- j row Valenciennes lace and fastet.ee; do.vn tbe) front with gold stud?, anri Persian taffeta silk handkerchiefs, which add to the diversity in this conspicuous article of drew. Colored and white serges are the most lerviceoble materials for yachting gowns. and there is a new kind of serge which is warranted proof against the effect of Bait water. But numerous other gowns for outing purposes are made of duck linen, pique, and Russian crash, and the coatt of all these gowns cither have a basque frill four Inches deep and half loose fronts with wide pointed revers and square collars, or are made In some form of Eton, zouave, or bolero Jacket. These little coats will be especially fashionable later In the seaaon. and they are an extremely pretty addition &||& I to tha commonplace shirt waists so gener- j I ally worn. One jaunty style of Eton coat Is | made without sleeves, and plaited. Draped ' j epaulets, which fall over the shirt waist cleevea, finish It at the armboles. Bolero* are one of the distinctive features of tha latest street gowns In Paris, and canvas ctamlnes and mohairs are made up with this little jacket, cut very shorthand often I rounded up the middle of the back to a point, showing the wide draped belt of '-•lack satin below. The bolero Is made of materia! like ■he skirt, and trimmed around the edge vith braid, or the whole Jacket is cut out of come handsome embroidery on silk or srass linen If the Jacket Is plain, a showy collar and revers of embroidery are a pretty addition. Plaid silks are very ef fective for vests and revers for this sort 'cf gown, with the wide black belt for a finish: or the revers and collar may he of tbe pla'd and the rest of some pretty shot silk or tucked and lace-trlmmed muslin. This combination makes a navy-blue mo hair gown very stylish. Another Idea for a dark blue gown is a i bright green cloth collar and revers which I extend into a band down either side of the Jacket, plainly stitched on the edges and finished wttJs a row of tiny gold buttons. One pretty yachting gown shows the Eton coat stitoted on the edges and opened over - a tucked muslin shirt, with a blue silk bow at the neck and a blue and white striped kid beit »t the waist. The skirt Is finished with rows of stitching. Another gown of navy-blue 6erge has a Figaro Jacket effect openlnr over a blue fnd white I rtrined «oree waist, finished at the neck 1.

There seems to be a new erase for cut ting out theae tab ends wherever It U pos sible. and there are tabbed basquea, revere, and collars on many of the new gown*. A third gown, very odd aud sinking lv atyle, la of white serge. The waist has a constat bolt of the aerge, with full ahort basque embroidered In aovy blue silk cord. A scarf of black and white silk Bile In tho front, and the Figaro Jacket la of nivy blue faced cloth, with tabbed epaulets ou either ahoulder and a luoot of navy blue aud white chlfToa down either side of the front. Th- approved yachting Jacket la made of blue serge, double brcaated, and finlsheil with white bral'l and gilt buttons. Still another yachting gown of the same blue eerge la effectively ornamented with an chore embrolderej !n white and blue, sc.: tho collar, facing*, cuffs and veat are ot white cloth. While pique and grass linen aro used fo;- these accessories, and they are easily mado adjustable to tbey can be laundered.

BENEATH THE SOD. I saw the mortal laid beneath the sod. With earven cross above her breast. I knew the immortal spirit was with God, A bright, pure soul hud gained eternal rest. First o f a band of friends tv pass away, Her busy, useful life on earth is dune; Ended forever is her toilsome day. For her the promised rest has" now begun. I stood and heard the solemn accents fall. "I am the resurrection and the life." God. whose great mercy watches over all. Had ta'en my friend from out our earthly strife.

And j very often, singing soft lulabies, abe enter-' talued her friends while visiting them In their harems. Her daughter, Niyjar Hamyn, listened to those songs of love, appropriated them diligently, and upon such foundations she painted beautiful, poetic canvasses, full of Oriental fancy and form, which gave to them tho charm of originality. Young Niy jar, having learned French and German, gave voice to her pareions along tbe linos ot masterpieces of occidental poets, Imitating very charmingly their forms and reaching their height of talent and Inspiration. An unhappy marriage contributed very much to the development of her talent. Ac cording to tne Turkish custom she married early-—when she was only thirteen year* old.

A Paris landlord let three wretched women occupy the loft of his stable, In default of ability on their part to pay the rent of a decent habitation. But it proved that they could not even pay him his miserable ten francs (two dollars) a month. He tried to evict them, but they could find shelter no where else, and they would not budge. At 1 i~t ho hit upon the expedient of walling up their only means of egress, an alley-way. Yet. notwithstanding this, the two younger women contrived to climb over the barrier, so its to go to their work. One ot them whs formerly employed to dress lay figures In the Uoupll art studios, and earned good wages, but lost her position. Latest advices do not state whether tho landlord la victorious or not. nicydlsts In Germany use hand-grenades or bombs to get rid of troublesome dogs.
