: - 7 rr SEASpoNR ROM -SOME NEW POINTS THAT MAY \ ' w/nMAM WHO I H.-I tie. VW ....,_ MAKES HER OWN CLOTHES. FOR SUMMER WEAR. To. the woman who makes her own ; gowns the welcome news has been Jtnown all last season that linings are 110 longer used as a foundation to .skirts, and the coming summer the same rule will prevail. Separate silk slips will he used for muslin gowns in much the same manner as cloth gowns have been used all winter, although, to be sure, "where silk is not available lawn may do duty quite as well, and may be of whatever shade matches the blossoms -on. the pretty mull or organdie, or white, as suits the individual taste, j Batiste will also be used for these j slips, much ruffled and frilled at the hem. so that the thin muslin skirts may have the proper flare and be kept from getting in about the feet In disagreeable fashion. In like manner the up-to-date home dressmaker must see that her waists are made sufficiently loose in front, for there must be no skipping of material there. For wear under muslin blouse waists, so as to keep them prettily filled, there are corset covers of fine muslin and lawn, with three laceedged ruffles across each front. When these ruffles are starched and ironed they give the necessary fullness, and keep the blouse out in smart fashion. Gowns of voile and like materials are lined with silk and inside the silk waist lining 'smart dressmakers are placing two or three bust ruffles of stiff muslin, which give the same . -effect as the corset cover just de-scribed. The effect on slim figures is exceedingly good and this does away with padding, which is always disagreeable, particularly so in warm weather. If' these ruffled corset covers cannot be readily procured the needle woman may make them for herself without trouble. It is well to have "the back nearly plain, with perhaps a little gathering at the waist, but the Tronts must be fairly full, and then three ruffles, about two inches deep, are placed across each front, so that the edge of one barely overlaps the top of the next. That is all. Trimming may, of course, be added at will. In summer negligees the home dressmaker has a field in which she ' -excels. Large sleeves seem to characterize the long and short negligee for summer and deep collars, fischus or pelerines are also seen as adjuncts to these garments." A pretty short negligee or dressing jacket is made in kimona shape, with one seam under the arms. The fronts and back are slightly pointed and the loose kimona sleeve is likewise pointed on the outer arm. A. row of insertion is set about one -tTioii from the edge of the garment all around, while a modification of all the Japanese obi, in the shape of a soft fold of silit or muslin, is laid around the garment and under the arms, a rosette of ribbon finishing "the sash in front. Such a garment may be made of organdie or china sillc as suits the fancy. Beadings of lace are set in empire effect (so as to simulate the short waist) across these negligees, and through these ribbons are run, being tied across the bust in a smart rosette or bow. Skirts of white linen will be much worn this summer, and the manygored pattern is generally, more satisfactory for this material than any other kind. With these will be worn gold belts of braid or gold lace, as the case may be. Prettier, however, j -are the wider gold ceintures of gold- i en tissue ribbon, sold in all the ribbon stores. These are quite expensive if bought ready made, but the handy girl may make one for her self at slight cost, provided she has n long, graceful golden buckle, or can find one at a reasonable price. In maring 01 slocks liuu wita>?> there is the turn-over collar of embroidery, worn with a white linen how tie. "White stocks with ascols of pink and white lawn are also new. A pretty necessary when the hair has to be tidied up when one is already dressed, is the toilet slip. It is m^de of white cr colored linen, requiring a yard and a quarter of the goods. The little garment is shaped somewhat like a kite, the V-shaped points reaching slightly below the waist in front and back, and the shoulder line reaching some four or five inches below the regular armhole. A curved piece Is cut out of the material for the neclc,,_and the gorment buttons on the shoulder at the left side. I have some good bargains on Fairmont avenue. Call and see me. H. *. H.

Is marcning: on. Colorado's j Democratic State convention, just j held, did not instruct for anybody, j but it indorsed the Kansas City plat- j form. Of the States and Territories! which have held conventions many i have either sanctioned the Kansas! City deliverance or will do so in the j St. Louis assemblage in July. These j are California. Iowa. Kansas. Zebras-1 ka. Nevada. New Mexico. Oklahoma. J Rhode Island anu Wyoming. Of f course, a still larger number of State conventions already held have either j rejected or ignored the Kansas City j platform, but enough of them stick! to the 1900 outgiving to make a good j deal of trouble for the Democrats j in the national gathering. There is no longer any doubt that! Mr.,Bryan is still a personage of con-j siderable consequence in his party. I He has been read out often by Eastern members of the Democracy, but the astute leaders of the party in the East as well as in the West know | that he is a personage to be reckoned with. There is not the faintest reason to suppose that the St. Louis convention will indorse the Kansas City vnfac will i aetiveranve. uui cuuua.. ..? ? cast there for it to show the De-1 mocracy that it can neither defy nor j ignore Bryan with impunity. All the States and Territories which have held conventions thus far that can be counted as favoring the outgiving: of four years ago are West of the Mississippi except Rhode Island. The only States of the North or West carried by the Democracy in 1900 were in the trans-Mississippi region, however, by throwing Bryanisrn overboard this year the Democracy will destroy its sole chance of winning any State outside of the old slave territory. The West as well as the North is against the Democracy on any division whieh repels the Bryan section of the party. Although . the Xebraskan may not be able to get the nomination for himself, if he -should decide to work for it, he is able to wreck the chances of any of his enemies in the convention, and he will he still more potent in an aci- I verse way at the polls. Colorado's indorsement of the Kansas City creed is a note of warning to the Democrats that the irrepressible conflict of 1S9G and 1900 is still a fact.?Globe-Democrat. Russian Tricks. * Philadelphia Press.] "The Life of a Russian Soldier," said the Sage, "is desperately liard. and owing to the compulsory service laws there are all sorts of attempts made by the simple-minded peasant to avoid the quick-witted recruiting officer. At a station in Eastern Russia. for instance, a conscript recently pleaded deafness and so wouldn't an- j swer any of the questions put to j him. "You can go home." said the sur- ] geon at last, in a very low tone. "The fellow jumped for the door ; and so was caught.

A story which belongs to n time several years ago when air Kuglish duke was a much sought after personage in New York society is told by Mr. James L. Ford io "The Brazen Calf;" This duke, contemptuously noting the eagerness with wlilch New Yorkers fawned upon him. had formed the habit of going out to dinner without troubling himself to put on evening dress. A lady bad invited hlin to dinner without knowing of this peculiarity and was awaiting ills arrival when her butler opened the door and cast a glance at her over the heads of intervening guests which said plainly that ar??? c vt-rn 11 rr suuivlu<ii?. >i ?t.o > She hastened into the hall to find the duke standing- there clad in the checked sack suit and flaming red tie which had seemed to him "good enough" for a dinner party of American calf worshipers. This woman, however, had presence of mind, and she advanced upon him radiant and smiling. "Xo." she said decisively as she took him by the hand; "I won't accept any excuses. You've come round to tell mo why it is that you can't dine here to night, and It's ever so much nicer of you to do that than just to scud a note The dinner's a little late, and you've just time to go home and dress and be back here before we begin." The nobleman opened his mouth to reply, but his hostess shut him off in a second: "No; you needn't make an.v explanations or excuses. Remember, you've only twenty minutes, so you must hurry." A moment later the astounded duke found himself hurrying toward his hotel and perhaps wondering what new social force It was that was impelling him in that direction. A WOMAN'S POINT OF VIEW.

"You must have seen such wonderful things." The woman who had traveled thought deeply a few minutes; then she said slowly: "I think it was the lack of napkins in Scotland. Y'es, that was it. My dear, there isn't a sign of a napkin 0:1 the tables in Scotland. If you ask for one, you may get it, and then again you may not. I was entertained in the hemes of some of the " "* ' ~ Cr.Xtle and Tiorof J1 llliest ptrupit; in ?4^w -napkin did I get. "The next most impressive thins was tlie size of the coins in England. I used* up a great deal of good, nervous energy trying Ways and means to stuff those cart wheels into my little purse. One day, when my pocketbook had become unusually clumsy. I became almost hysterical, niul that night I dreamed that I was using belt buckles for the coin of the realm. "There's one queer thing, though. You know I never could get it through my bead how one made double change. JTou know what I mean?some one gives you too much change, and then you give them some money, and it's all right or something of that sort. Well, I never could understand that process in good ITniced States money, with which I'm more or less familiar, but over there in England I accomplished that feat again and again without a tremor. Don't ask me how I did it. I don't know. It just came to me. Can I do it now in United States money? No, I can't." I left that special ability behind in England."? New York Tribune.

To tlie faithful devotion of his wife General Gordon owed his life. In the bloody battle of Sliarpsburg, Gordon, while in the midst of the carnage, was shot five Limes. As soon as he fell his wife rushed to his side and carried him to safety, stanching the flow of blood and attending his wounds until medical aid could be procured. She remained with him in the hospital until he had recovered, and when General Gordon went back to join bis command Mrs. Fannie Ilaralson Gordon followed her husband. Tito Annual BntH In tlie Guukcm.
