Thisomolet is more popular than any other

kidneys; season them und fry in oil or clari
fied butteron a brisk fire. Then drain off; add
u little flour, some lino herbs, a glass of sherry
and ball a gill of stock. Stir on tho nfe, but
be careful not to let it boil. Make a well-seasoned
omelet of five eggs, and when nearly
set spread the kidneys in the interior. Fold
up the omelet, dish it up. and pour over it
some clear Spanish snuce, mado sharp with
the addition of a little Worcestershire.
Popularity of Plain Skirts and Those
Plain skirts continue to appear on the ma
jority of the new French models, in spite of
the acknowledged claims of double and draped
styles. A close fit about tho hips is essential,
but this is made up lor by increasing width
around the bottom. Tho fashionoblo skirt
touches tho ground all tho way around, but
does not drag.
Tailor made styles are as much in vogue as
ever. Gowus of this sort aro tho most useful
ones for everyday street wear, as they always
look neat and have no frills to become- shabby
in dampness and dust. An extensive variety
of goods suitablo for these costumes is shown
this fall in dull reds, blues, and greens as woll
as in tho older tan and mode colors. Larce
and small buttons of cut smoked pearls, with
rows of stitching, aro tho acceptea trimming.
Bound waists, worn with a belt, continue in
favor. Pointed corselets are also seen, al
though the novelty of these is long outworn.
Tight-fitting Eton" jackets, with wide revere,
are to be employed as outer garments and will
bo mado up in fur, astrakhan cloth and sim
ilar thick goods. As an example of how ex
tremes sometimes meet in fashion may bo
cited tho fact that long redingotes, extending
nearly to the foot of the gown, will also bo
worn this winter.
No new departure is noted in sleeves. An
exaggerated glgot stylo prevails, verv full
above the elbow and very tight below. "less

Her RUfliMUs Spoke.
If it had been any ono but Augustus I would
have said thnt ho was foolishly flattered over
tho invitation to give tho nnnunl address at
tho county fair.
Augustus is not a public speaker, though
ho has often read papers boforocientiflc as
sociations. It seems singular that he was chosen. 01
course I consider him a great man. but no
ono would suspcet him of a leaning toward
olther agriculture or horticulture. Our lawn
and garden present tho worst nppearanco of
any in town.
I could not help saying to him that it would
bo wed to adviso tho farmers to improvo their
dooryarda, but he quito ignored tho remark.
I inquired several times how ho was getting
on with his addr ess, and invariably learned
that thero was timo enough; ho always wrote
better when thero was something to spur him
on, and so tho Saturday before tho fair week
came arouud Augustus informed me at break
fast ho was going into his study to plunge
head and car3 into his address, and on no
account must ho ba interrupted. So I was
surprised to have him come into tho kitchen
about 10 and tell mo that ho wanted luncheon
put up ho was going to Fern wood with Prof,
"To Fernwood!" I repeated. '"Why, Au
gustus Dempster, it is your duty to stay at
homo and write on that address. I should
think you would be wild over it!"
"You do not understand, ilaria," ho
answered, rather loftily, "what a day in tho
open air means to a man who works con
stantly with his brain. I can do twico tho
execution after it."
Tho next week there were unusual de
mauds upon Augustus, and such as could not
bo set nsido. Ho grew moody and irritable.
I thought wisest to say nothing, though I
was consumed by anxiety.
Thursday was tho day of tho nddress.
Wednesday night I was very tired. I had
been making jelly, aud had just finished seal
ing tho glasses when, at 0:30. ho camo down
to the kitchen and inquired if thero was hot
"I have a raging headache," ho said, "and
that peskv nddress isn't half done. I was a
fool to take it."
The fire was out, but I hastened to rolight
it, and carried the boiling water to tho study.
Augustus' treatment of headache is pecul
iar. Ho puts his feet into hot water and a
hot water compress on his head, and at such
times ho is not exactly a subject for a painter.
I chnnged tho steaming towels every few min
utes and wont dowu after water flvo times.
I burned his feet more than once, aud ejac
ulations were not complimentary. I suppose
if, before I was married, 1 had believed it
possiblo that Augustus would ever speak to
mo like that I should have lain down and
died. I had other business now.
In tho intervals of my hydropathic treat
ment I looked up several classical stories to
which ho wished to allude, and found some
At midnight ho was red as a lobster; tho
great veins on his forehead swelled almost to
bursting, his bands trombled.
'Augustus," said I, "this won't do. You
must stop and sleep or you will novcr finish.
You rest till 1 o'clock and I will copy what
you have written." Ho fumed awhile, but I
finally got him off in his nightcap of towels.
I copied carefully until it was timo to wnko
him. Ho camo in looking sleepy, but de
clared bis headache better and began looking
over tho manuscript on which 1 hud been
"Ilow illegibly you have written this!" ho
said. "I shall blunder fearfully in reading it."
"Why," returned I, bristling up with
wounded vanity, "you used to say that my
handwriting was as plain as typo."
"If I over said that," he answered, "you
certainly have grown slnck now."
I lay down for an hour or two with a sore
heart. I ought to have known that Augustus
was hardly responsible for what he suid.
When I called Augustus to breakfast ho was
feeling comparatively cheerful, for ho had
finished tho address. I sat down to copy be
fore I washed my dishes, while ho wont into
tho attic to rehearse to tho rafters, schoolboy
A carriage was to bo sent for him at 10:30.
I was determined to hear tho address, and
was hurrying away for dear life at my toilet;
Istood before tho mirror with my hair in my
hand, when Augustus knocked.
"Maria," asked ho, "will you put in my
sleeve buttons? I can't do it, and I fear tho
carriage will come beforo I am ready."
"O, nonsense!" I cried, "it won't bo here
for half an hour."
"Well," he said, "I am about used up; I
don't know how I shall ever get through this
"Dear me!" I thought, "It tho 'man can't
dress .himself, what will happen."
I dropped my hair, washed my hands, ad
justed the buttons, tied his necktie and ran
down to make a strong cup of coffee. Ho had
just swallowed it when tho carriage rolled up.
I reached the fair ground just as tho exer
cises were commenciug. Tho seats wero all
filled, but a gentleman brought a chair, either
from courtesy or in consideration of tho re
lation I sustain to Augustus.
When tho speaker of tho day was announced
my heart beat so I feared it would attract no
tice. I expected he would falter or faint, or
do some other dreadful thing.
There ho stood, calm and majestic as tho
eternal hills, and not oven my penmanship
could mako him trip on a single sj'llnble.
I thought of tho frantic, florid individual
upon whom I dnnced attention the previous
night, and was glad his audience did not
know lie had any other " aspect than the one
he now presented.
Well, the address wasJcounted a grand suc
cess, and Augustus grow so genial in tho at
mosphere of appreciation that ho beamed on
mo when ho came homo, almost like a lover.
But a woman who has been married ten
years knows that displays of affection should
1)0 turned to practical use a little domestic
buy made while the sun shines; so when ho
"Jlaria, you behaved like an angio lost
night, and I treated you like a bruto," I re
plied. "0, don't mention it; I was so glad to
help you. But, Augustus, can't you inanngo

His countonnnco fell, but ho was ashamed
"Yes," he replied. "I'll do it next Saturday."
and he did, not oven yeildingto tho blandish
ments of Prof. Eogers, his evil genius.
It isn't every man with the intellect of
Augustns who will get down and dig dande
lions, and I lauded him that night as I would

All the women of my acquaintance seem to
havo become sensible of my great privilege in

"Oh, Mrs. Dempster," thoy say, "I think
3Ir. Dempster's address was just beautiful.
That passage about meu having)consideration
for their wives, and not selfishly putting their
own burdens on their weak shoulders, was
what husbands needed to hear."
But, though tho town regards him as a pub
lic benefactor, and our lawn has not looked
so well in years, I trust it will bo long beforo
ho is again invited to mako tho annual ad
dress at tho county fair. Outing.
Fake About the Russian Council of State

HOMES MADE MISERABLE.
One Sufferer Maltcs the Whole House
Mnny a homo is made miserable by siok
ness. One invalid in a family causes every
member of tho household to bo unhappy,
through sympathy and nnxloty. Tho suf
ferer should lose no opportunity to got well.
It is a duty he owes to others ns well as to
himself. Mrs. Jane Hartloy writes from
Phillipsburg, N. J.: "Last winter I became
pale and emaciatod. Food fermented in my
stomach. A physician pronounced my caso
catarrh of the stomach, but he could not
holp me. I could eat no solid food without
vomiting. Whilo visiting my sister in Wash

Vnlkor, the specialist. Under his treatment

splendid health; havo a good color, eat
heartily, am ten pounds heavier, aud have no
distress after eating. Tho whole family suf

all happy and grateful to Dr. Walker."
Mr. M. C. Moore, an omployo of the Navy
Yard, says- "You may say that Dr. Walkor's
treatment has, in my
case, proved 11 wonder
ful success. For tho
past year I have had a
great deal of troublo

were not agreed a3 to
what ailed mo, but all
of them wero not ablo
to do in a year what
Dr. Walker did in just
four weeks. In that

It is the universal verdict that Dr. Walker
effects almost miraculous cures in all disor
ders of tho brain and nervous system, dis
eases of tho skin and blood, catarrh, asthma,
consumption, malaria, dyspepsia, rheuma
tism, neuralgia, hemorrhoids, diseasej of
women, loss of strength and vitality, sexual
weakness, and all chronic affections of tho
lungs, thront, heart, liver, stomach, kidneys,
blnddor, bowels, an J other organs.
Young or middle-aged men suffering from
tho results of their own follies, vices, or ex
cesses, or men contemplating marriage who
aro conscious of any impediment or disquali

vigor nnd power declining, should consult
Dr. Walker, who has been the means of re
storing hundreds of such unfortunates to
health and happiness.
Dr. Walker may bo consulted free of
