Women -will hail with delight tbe fact that the jersey, a garment of undoubted popu larity several years aero, is about to re tarn to them. Perhaps it would bo aa well to gay that it is the same old THIS MODIFIED JBRSF.Y. jersey made more beautiful a thou sand times. The winter and early spring models .shown in a few of the most exclusive shops are exquisite be yond desoriptioii They are made not only in black, but in solid colors of bine, green, red, fawn, etc Some of the black models are braided nud spangled most elaborately in Bolero and Persian lamb effects. Some of thera arc corded and somo are plain. In fact, there is every possible style. It has been hinted that the jersey is a garment for plump women only, but the present fashions are becoming to slender figures as well. Three Millinery Triumph!. Gray in all shades of ash, pearl and stone is as popular as ever. The charming hat shown on tbe left of the shaped like skirts. The top is set in simple bias or crosscut band, through which ribbon is passed. There are no plaits, no gathers behind ; thoy are placed beneath the corset fastenings almost at the bottom of the hips, so as not to enlarge the flguro by a line. The flounces are shaped and covered with lace like those of last year. f.nne; Capes In Favor. Long capes have come to bn very ranch regarded with favor. Care must be taken to have tbo cape cut broad enough. Tho stylish rape of to-day does not reduce the width of the woman's shoulders. It is the misfortuno of too many of the golf oapes now worn that they are cut to narrow in the shoulders. The Favorite Fur lint. Mink remains a favorite among the fur hats. A new Spanish turban has brim of mink, with looso crown of pink panne velvet. Two large roses of dull blue and rod tints give the ilu- ishing touch. I'Uttecl Skirt. One of the latest fashions shows skirts with rather shallow folds re sombliug kilting all round; the folds or plaits are there certainly and give somewhat greater flow to the foot of the skirt. A Toque Much In Furor, A toquo which finds some favor is made of smoky gray velvet hand pointed in a lighter shade mixed with white and completed with a gray tulle rosette and two wings and two fancy pins. Tntlor Drennes With riptngl. Pipings of silk aad velvet continue to be much used. Many garments and suits of the strictly tailor-made class have seams finished with velvet pipings, and the effect is very good. ltou and Mufl'a to Match. The most beautiful boas ore the loner round ones, huge in size and made of the fluffy fur of the cub bear. The muffs to match are proportion ately large, aud are round and plain. ' - BOFT TOSE9 OF OIUY. K MtLLIXEttY TRIUMPH. BMAKT VELVET TOQUE. large illustration is of velvet in a sil very lichen tone, with a rather narrow ronnd brim and heavily shirred and folded crown. Snow-white gulls are set close on eithei side of a tall velvet bow in front and the combination of delicate white plumage and silver-gray is very bountiful. The frame of the hat in the centre of the group in the large picture is of sapphire-blua velvet. It rolls high and sharp on the left side, down winch soft silk is drawn ia full, rich folds. Bat the glory and pride of the whole is a gorgeous South African bird of gleaming plumage. The feathers are of glowing metallic blue, and the head of white and rose, with the big black eye in high relief. Tbe model on the right of the group is the very smartest toque of the sea son. The fur is of otter, soft as down and sheeny as satin, combined with velvet of silvery lilac. Tho design is the very perfection of simplicity, but is none the less rich aud beautiful as whole. How to Utlllie Lace Handkerchief. Who of ns has not got one or two cherished and delicate handkerchiefs of priceless old laoo that we keep among our most valued posses sions? and how often we pine for the opportunity of showing them to onr admiring friends? A new nse has come in for them which is attractive in the last degree. This is to remove the cambrio oontre and to use the laoe as a yoke on a costly frock. Then, tgaiu, we ean wear them as a frill at our neck, as a knot, or fold thera so to nse as a collar to Bilk or muslin blouse. Heantlful Gi.wn for Evening Wear. A very banc me evening gown is of pale yellow satin, with a pretty bodice tnoked back and front, ar d sleeves of oreara net, ornamented with waved lines of gathered cream silk ribbon. Very effective, too, is an evening dress of geranium pink satin, with a deep flounce of the same satin round the hem of the skirt, trimmed with blauk chiffon and pink ribbons. This bodice has long mitten sleeves of transparent black net, while in front it ia oruameuted with revere of piuk satin, trimmed with blaok ohif ion. Faalifouable Puree Uagi, With the present pooketless dresses, ii is necessary for tho up-to-date woman to carry some reoeptaole for the handkerchief,, purse, etc Very pretty small bags, some of the retioule shape, others of oblong form, are eon sidsted with at the proper thing. They r made ia colored leather matching the Don I u me iu color, with chased gilt (or gold) clasp and chain, and contain mall interior pookets for smelling bottles, watch and other sundries. Tha New FettieoaM. retUooata are tighter than ere.i The Sleeve tha Feature. A feature of the new gown Is, of course, the sleeve, that has been go ing through the same process of evo lution, or rather revolution, on which the skirts are just entering. There is no question that fashion has gone back again to the tight sleeve, aud now there is just as much attention paid to having the sleeve tit closely over the upper part of the urm as thoro is to haviug a skirt lit absolutely smoothly over tho hips. There are many people to whom a close-Ultiug sleeve is not bocoming, and as yet fashion is kiud enough to allow a cur tain amount of trimming rows of tucks, or soft folds, or even caps over the very top of the sleeve but the very smartest ooata and waists are quite plain. Cuffs have come into fashion again, that is, the culfs of the same material as the gown, or of fur, or laoe. They are turned baok from the hand and are flaring in design, and even when the sleeve is cut very long over the baud aud in poiuts, the points cau be turned baok to look like flaring cutis. The coats trimmed with fur ore very rnuoh smarter this way thau they were with the plain sleeves, but on the sleeve of any waist that has to be woru under a coat the fashion is awkward.

The papers nro widely publishing ;he recent decision of Justice Gnthriej jf Logansport, Ind.? in the case ol tho Journal company against Thonin. Heed for n subscription account, and lome of them, says the Journal, are bndly informed on the subject. In holding that Heed owed tho Journal 16.75, tho court decided that he had never given the publishers propet notice of his desire to have the pnpei stopped. Whilo Heed testified thai he had ordered the carrier to stop the paper, the boy swore that he had never received any such notice. Ou this point the court held that even if it were proven that lteed had told the boy to stop, this would not be suffi cient notice unless it were shown thai the boy was tho agent of tho publishei to the exteut of receiving orders foi discontinuing subscriptions. The de cision is of considerable importance to newspaper publishers, as it wili compel subscribers to nsa proper bnsi ness care iu ordering their papers die continued, nnd failing to do so will be held liable for their subscription. Itarelved (lie I'nner and Had to Far. A case of interest to newspaper pub lishers occurred recently at West brook, N. Y., wherein u Arm of news paper publishers brought suit, and obtained judgment for $'J aud costs, on acoount of subscription charges. The publishers admitted that the de fendant never ordered the paper. Tho facts wero not disputed thut when they bought in the list of an other paper in the town, this man's uame'was ou the list, but without his orders. The now management wrote to all whoso names were ou tho list they had bought, offering to stop the papers of all who did not expect to pay. The defendant did not answei this notice, but kept on taking the paper, and then refused to pay on the ground that he never subscribed. Tho plaintiffs argued that the general rule of law, that a man must pay for what he receives and uses, applies to news papers as well as other things, nnO the court sustained that view. Arrearage Munt lie Fnlil. The publishers of the Anoka Herald recently sued a delinquent subscriber and recovered judgment for seven years' subscription aud costs thaf amounted to $20. The paper hud been ordered stoppod nnd returned from the postofllce as refused, but tho subscriber had not paid up the ar rearages aud his name coutiuued on tho books and the paper waawogulnrly mailed to his address. Thu decision of tbe court was, a subscriber could be held for subscription until ar rearages wero paid. He Cannot lie llomtit. "It's no use," said Hermann mourn fully, "I simply cannot be honest."

The secret of tho democratic eflior escenco of Australasia is the same as that of tho new vigor shown there by Europeau plants aud animals, says Henry D. Lloyd in tbe Atlantic. The secret is the same as that of the long ! step ahead of the mother country takeu by Hew Luglaud, with its Puri tans and Pilgrims. The wonderful propagative power of democratic ideas in Australasia is a fact of the same order as tho miraculous multiplica tion of the Europeau sweetbricr and rabbits introduced there. The old ideas ami institutions, given a new chance in a now country, gaiu a new vigor. It is their new world. Hopes nud purposes, which hud fossilized iu tho old country, live ngaiu. When the holdback of custom, laws, aud old families is removed, there is a leap forward as from a leash. What Aus tralasia has been doing is only what England and the older countries have been slowly attempting to do. Para doxically, too, this renaissance of de mocracy in Australasia is not tho fruit of colonization by religious enthusi asts, or sooiul reformers, or patriots choosing exile, but of colonization by plain, every-doy, matter-of-fact Eng lishmen, thinking only of making a better living. child's frook of figured delaine.

Numerous complaints had come be fore a certain public official iu regard to the quality of food served to the inmates of one of the ptiblio institu tions, aud he determined to investi gate. Making his way to the building just about dinner-time, he encoun tered two men currying a huge, steaming boiler. "Put that kettle down I" be ordered brusquely; and the men at once obeyed. '"Get me a spoon!" he next commanded. The man that brought tho spoon was about to say something, but was ordered to keep sileut, "Take olf the lid!" was the next command. "I'm going to taste it." The two men, oowed by the otlluiul's bruiitjiieness, watched him gulp down a good mouthful. "Do you mean to say that you call this soup? the onioial demanded. "Why, it tastos to me more like dirty water." "So it is, sir," replied oue of the men, respectfully, "We were scrub- bias the floors." POPULAR SCIENCE. rhcnol, or carbolic acid, discovered by Mitscherlioh in 1834, being one of tho most powerful antiseptics and dis infectants, purifies the atmosphere from noxious gases and destroys the infectious germs of disease. Its valu able autiseptio properties have beeu introduced into surgery with great success by the present Lord Lister, President of the ltoyul Society. From carbolio acid is obtained a valuable series of coloring matters, ranging from a beautiful yellow, i. e., picric acid, to reds, oranges, browns aud mauy other colors. Dr. It. Hauthal.an Argentine savant, has put forward a startling theory con cerning the remains of gigantic sloths, related to the great megatherium and the mylodon, recently found in Pata gonia. Iu his opinion, thse animals, vhose race is now extinct, was kept in a domosticated state by the prehis toric inhabitants of Patagonia. A caveat Ultima Esporanza, whore many indications of tho former presence of tho huge sloths have boeu found, is regarded by Doctor Hauthol as having beon used by tho ancient Patagoniaus as a stable for tbe beasts. Lake Superior appears to exercise a greater effect upon the annual amount of precipitation of rain and snow near its shores than any other of the great lakes. The averago preoipitation in a year is about eight inches greater on the southern thau ou the northern side of Lako Superior. Lakes Erie aud Ontario also show more precipita tion on tit oir southern than ou their northern shores, but the difference is only three inches annually. Iu the case of Lakes Huron and Michigan, it is tho eastern shores as compared with the western which get the largest pre cipitation, but tho difference is not great. On July 19th last the city of Home nndulnted with tho waves of an earth quuke for nearly half a minute. The famous monuments of autiqnity scat tered in and about the city were strongly shaken, but fortunately no serious damage was suffered by them. The great columns iu tho Forum rocked visibly, and a large stone crashed down from the Colosseum. A strange atmospheric effect, which has before been observed during great earthquakes, was very noticeable ou this occasion. Peoplo who rushed iu alarm from their houses were drenched with n torrent of rain that poured from light grey clouds which almost iustantuuoonsly gathered in a per fectly clear sky as soon as tho earth begun to quake. From London has boon reported the possibility of foretelling a rain storm by photography. Tho Hortz wnves, thrso bearers of electricity on wireless telegraphs, produce a marked effect ou ,the sensitive protographic plates. F. 0. Glen demonstrated iu the rooms of the Royal Photograph Company, of London, that theso elec tric waves could bo utilized to show tho approach of u storm. From ex periments it is seon that lightning is not one continuous shaft of light, but is composed of numberless rows of sparks, that follow one another in tho same truck. This lightning is tho cause of electric waves tho' are spread out from all sides by eaob spark. If we use a coherer with tho same rela tion to the electrical waves that it has in wireless telegraphy, but of a dif ferent shape, aud brought before a photogrnphicpluto by his arrangement, thou the waves of a fur distant, ap proaching storm operate so positively on this tllm tha', tho impending Btorm can be foretold, with certainty. rreimrlr.jf Milk for Shipment. The destruction by pressure of the bacteria which causes milk to sour promises Jto revolutionize tho ship ment nnd handling of milk. Recently the Government has boeu applying enormous hydraulic pressure to sam ples of milk inclosed in collapsiblo tiu tubes, placed in strong hollow slael cylinders, tho pressure ranging f .-oiu 1U0 pounds to 100 tons per square inch. It was found that at ordinary temperatures milk subjected to pressures of ton to liftceu tons for as many days wus sweot at the end of the test, whilo at lower pressures the souring was not delayed. Pressures of thirty tons applied for ouo hour delayed souring for upward of twenty-four hours as compared with check samples. Press ures of seventy to ninety-live tons for several minutes to oue hour kept milk sweet from two to seven days. When thetemporuture of the milk was raised from 110 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit, low pressures gavo better results thau corresponding pressures at ordinary temperatures. Up to the present time it has been impossible to completely destroy all the bacteria by i means of pressure, germ life being particularly tenacious. Germs of typhoid fever, tuberoulosis aud other diseases added to tho milk for experimental purposes were not killed by tho application of ten to fif teen tons for eight days and upward. The work, howevoi, gives promise of important results, and enough has already been done to warrant the be lief that the shipment of milk under pressure, to keep it sweet, is practica ble. Philadelphia Record. Abuut New Zralund Women. A new privilege has recently been nosorded to women by the New Zea land railroad companies. A party of wuuiou members of tho Woman's Political Leugue, of New Zealand, was traveling in company with a Minister ol Justice, when tho conductor of tha truiu appeared and asked for tickets. Not ouo of t'; o party was providod. Oue woman, however, with ready re sources, asked: "What it tho nse of traveling with a Minister if one cannot eujoy tho same privileges as he?" The employe retired, not knowiug; just how to reply, and reported the case iu full to his chiefs, with tho pleasing result that a new regulation has beeu published by the managers of the road, notifying their employes that hereafter women aaoompauyiug n Minister ot tha Urowu shall travel iutuitoiiHly, AruutMl at l.aitt. Some wives never pay niuoh attoii tiou to what their hnsbunds sat until they begin to talk iu their sleep. Philadelphia Record, I - WOMAN'S WORLD, j THE POST-CRADUATE CIRL. Only Tito t'lilrereltlet In the United Htates Sow That Will Not Have Her. It's rather difficult to understand the position of a university that opens its doors to women in post-grnduato work in certain departments aud koeps them rigidly closed iu others. It all depends upon tho professor. One may be willing to admit her into his laboratories while auother may see nothing but disappointment following in her wake and may absolutely re fuse. Then the post-graduate girl can do nothing but obey the mandate that bids her depart. There are two universities in this oonntry that have never yielded to the porsnasive tongue of the ambitious yonng woman. Princeton will have none of her, and Clark University has' drawn its lines against her. But eve rywhere elso the wedgo has been en tered, and the young women have appeared in numbers that are growing every year. She is hard to equal, the post-graduate girl. Some of the women's colleges make special provision for her nowadays. Bryn Mawr is really ahead in that work, for she not only gives fellow ships, but she is striving to become a university, with post-graduate courses all her own, Vassnr grants sevctal fellowships; Mount Holyoke is work ing for the same end; Smith, so fur as is known, pays little attention to the demand. It usd to be thought that for advanced work it was neces sary to study abroad. But it is rap idly coming to be the foot that the best facilities for post-graduate work may be found in this country. It is fortunate, too, for the young woman who has no more thau an A. B. after her name might as well give np, if teaching is her career. She never can rise to the higher positions. For teachers there is a deal iu n do greo, and so mauy of them spend all their spnro timo working for a few more letters to write after their names, eveu while they are working lor a little more money at the same time. For, though a college girl may be frivolous, the post-graduate student never is. She has settled down to the stern realities of life, so to speak, and she has no time for anything but earnest work. The degreo she is after is a definite goal, toward which she travels by the quickest possible road. There is a difference, however, between the man who goes iu for post-graduate work and the young woman. Perhaps because it is more difficult to find the woman who is a student and nothing besides, is the reason that the young women post graduates strike oue as being ahead of tho young men some ways; they seldom become mere grinds. The degree of Ph.D. is not com monplace yet. It may be in time, and then the post-graduate girl will need, perforco, to go iu for still more de grees. She spends about three years working for that one degreo now, although in some departments iu Columbia, for instance, it tako a much longer time. But the simple fact that she has a Ph.D. attached to her name counts for little iu comparison with tho name of the college from which she obtaiuod it. The more easy thoy aro to get the less they mean, necessarily. Degrees from Chicago, Lelaud Stanford, Cornell and the Univorsity of Michigan rauk high, and in all of these women are ad mitted on an exact equality with men, Columbia gives fine opportunities for graduato work in tho departments that are open, but though there are fellowships no woman ever obtains one. Some of the young women seem to havo an unlimited capacity for work, as iu the case of oue high school teacher who teaches all day, has a number of private pupils besides, and attends lectures in the eveniugs. It's a case of working all day aud study ing at night, and that is what many of the degree-seekers do. As u rule, the professors like to have them in their classes, because they are so thoroughly in earnest. Now York Sun, llenrftiotor ot Umiimlo il Children. Miss Evelyn Ashton Fletcher is not ouly iu this couutry but in Eh rope the originator of a system of teach ing musio which is more liko piny aud Icbs like drudgery to a ohild, and musio without tears is thus possible. The rudiments of this art are taught in a way which is as entertaining as a guino. For example, thoraenttl division of time is taught by a game with blocks, and tho iutrioaoies of the Hcalos are also set forth in fasoinnting fashion. With tho notes cut out of curd-board, five different and amusing games aro played. Fourteen different musical ;auios cau be played with musical olocks, and ouch game has an object. It is quite possible, indeed, to pluy a ,'utne of bliudinan's-buff, the ohild catching the note aud identifying it alter it has beeu struck on tho piuuo. Notes, musical figures, and expres sion marks booome dolls or soldiers. Miss Fletcher, after a long course of musio Btudy iu Germany, took np teaching in this country. Sho says, "I used touisk myself why, after four or five years of exhaustive lubor, a child should know so little about musio, aud have so little to show for it." It wus following out this line of thought whioh resulted in the method she is now teaching. She has re cently returned from a Europeau tour, and jinco her return bIio has been made a member of the Incorporated Society of 'Musicians of London. Miss Fletoher is a Cunudian girl, but she makes her homo in New York that is, wheu she is uot in Boston or Chi- ongo, where she conducts classes. Harper's Bazar. To Develop a ('iutiin Keck.

Chicago Keoord. Perils of the Long Skirt.
