Slie takes hints wherever she can find them, and she was sewing ou a long, robe-like garment, all heavy folds and a rich, blue tone. It was like one of the beautiful holy vestmeutstone sees sometimes on stained glass windows, and as she slipped it on it was "seen that the low, round neck was untrimmed, that the three-quarter droop ing sleeves were caught up with Uiree blue NEGLIGE BODICE. buttons, and that a narrow silver belt was required to adjust the folds about the waist It was long and full all around, slightly trained, at the back, and there was not a rag of trimming anywhere.

YELLOW LEADS IN FAVOR. Valenciennes is the favorite lace in this color, and in narrow, half-inch widths, it is sewed plain or frilled over revere, col lars and cuffs. If the gown is yellow, as is the ery YELLOW CREPON ROBE. dress-up rig' here shown on one of tho standing figures, the lace is white.

SHAIPNG AND BELTIN G . n As to the shaping of all this dainty house loveliness, there are only these rules to follow: If your lounging gown is to be cen, is to be encountered on ttnircases or discov ered in beautiful -window seat poses, it must be adjusted in tcmo trim way about the waist. Blowsiness has long been the bete uoire of man, and more than one floating Mother Hubbard has brought di vorce and disaster. Besides, it is not coquettish to look as if you wire given to wearing bags; and tho womau who loses her coquetry may as well hang her harp on tho willow tree for- . ever. Gowns for strictly bedroom use, and to 1)2 worn during the process ot the toilet, should be of wash materials, nnd may be as loose as liked.

New saut de lits, the enchanting little "Jump-out-of-beds," that the French send us every year, are adorably lovely.

One saut de lit lately shown by one of New York's smartest dressmakers seemed to have the work of 3 cars on it.

Tho striped portion, delicate green flowered burs on a white ground, formed the gown proper, each tuck of whose yoke was hernng boned with convent exactness with pale green thread. A tight-tucked cap arranged in the same way formed the upper por tions ot the volumlnous'sleeves, and to the edges of the flounces that trimmed fronts and bottoms of the gown, a hem or plain green was hemstitched on. At the edge ot this again was sewed the footing, all by hand; a thing to make one's back ache just to look at it. Yet such stitohery was .never seenl NINA FITCH. Will Build n Now Church.

The repirrt published exclusively in The Times recently of the purpose of tlio Y. M. C. A. and the Central Union Mission to make application to the judges of the Su premo Court to compel Warden Leonard to allow prisoners to have Tellglous ser vices on Sunday, according to thirteen years' custom, caused & great deal of talk at the city hall. Warden Leonard was himself at the building soon after courts open and ready to protest if the judges should forget .that he was acting under their direct orders in denying Uu prisoners their customary re ligious services ou Sunday. The rules under which Col. Leonard has forbidden the- assemblage of the prisoners for worship are dated April G. There is no statement on the card on which they are printed, making itplain that they were adopted by tho District Supreme Court judges in general term, nor is there any record of such action, but Judge Cole said they liad been so adopted. It was stated at the clerk's office that the action was not regarded as having been taken at a session of the judges, of which It was necessary that a record should be kept. The rules are mandatory upon Warden Leonard, and one of them explicitly for bids the assemblage of prisoners for re ligious services, Two rea.ous are given for this action. One reason is that there is danger cf plot for escape being made so as to take advantage of the liberty al lowed at the time. When religious services are held regu larly, such as the dally morning chapel exercises at the penitentiary at Auburn, N Y., the room is carefully ritted up for the occasion; the windows are closely barred and the doorc provided with loop Iiules, through which the guards could quell an Insurrection. The other reason is that most of the prisoners here make the worship merely an occasion for a lark. They put ou the show of penitence, but are really up to mischief. The Auburn prisoners, it is said, think no extra punishment more severe than to bedeprived of chapel. Concerning the efficacy of Christian work In prison, it is stated that the records will show almost without exception that the prisoners who have been pardoned as reformed by Tellglous work have almost without exception been engaged in crime withiu a yeur. nEAVO'LT UITIZnNSHIP To Bo Preferred. Siirn lir. Itire, to Any Other AIlCKlanoe. A large congregation listened with de light last night to a beautiful sermon on "Heavenly citizenship" by the Rev. Dr. A. W. Rice at the Church of the Covenant. The basis of the discourse was Second Phillippeans 20 th chapterand the 5th verse. In the text the speaker said, "conversa tion" is translated citizenship in the lie vised Version. Paul is saying I was freo born ami am a Itoman citizen, btill my higher citizenship is in licnven. I must be controlled by the laws and principles of the country to which I belong, rather than of the country through which t am traveling. Heavenly citizens are pil grims and sojourners on earth. They are not to conform to the evil that is in the world, but are to be governed by the prin ciples that, obtain in heaven. The good in the world they are entitled to enjoy, its evils they must renounce. It is a great honor to be a citizen of Heaven, and we should not disgrace our citizenship. Treason is the greatest crime which a man can commit. It is an honor to be a citizen of Heaven because of its noble laws, because of its ennobling fellowships, because of ttie satisfaction it gives in the world, because fell our hopes concerning Heaven shall be realized. We may uot be able to say what Heaven is, but it is certainly more than a t-tate ot mind or a condition. It is a place, a definite locality. Wc may not be able to say where Heaven is, but the Bible rep resents It as above us, from whence wc look for the Lord Jesus Christ. We need not, however, speculate as to ttie locality of Heaven. Our creed may be as simple as this: "Heaven is where Christ is." We shall be satisfied when we wake in His likeness, when Ave nave come into His preseuce." SIARY MACDAliEX AT THE TOMI1. Rot. ThomiiH Kwlnc Sherman's Tonchinsr Sermon at St. Aloysius" Clmrcli. At the request of Rev. Father Gillipsie, pastor, the Rev. Thomas Uwing Sherman, of Frederick, Md., whobpentthe day in the 'city, preached the sermon at tho 1 1 o'clock service at St. Aloysius Church yester day. Father Sherman took for his sub ject "The resurrection of Christ." In discussing tho subject Father Sherman said iu part, great must have been the love of Mary Magdalen for her dear Lord and Savior when eiio stood at his feet anointing them with her tears and pour ing on them precious ointments. Still greater within her was that divine love on the day when she stood In front of the tomb and heard the Power crying out, "Come forth" nnd in response saw that brother who had been dead four days walk in life. During tncEo long years that woman's love grew more Intense as she tried to equal the divine love with equal affection. Then came two days, while he lay in the tomb, two days as we measure time, butcenturies as the saints and angels measure prayers in sanctity, two long dark periods of bene diction when she wasdepnvedofthepresence ofHim who had come to be to her woman's love even mora than life. The intensity of that love drew her to the gate long before it was open and this poor binful woman waB the first to gaze upon the empty tomb. She was swift to- tell the news to the apostles, swift to return again to fin? the body. John looked into the tomb and tus orf to tell the apostles that "Christ is risen," and Peter, more cautious, examines the tomb more closely and returns to the city. But tho woman still weeps without, running to and fro overcome by grief for the loving one that Is gone. Standing there Mary heard herself ad dressed by Him who made her with the word "Mary." At once her whole form Is trans formed from grief to consolation for such is the power of the Savior. He did notrlse to show His power', He did not conle as the conqueror in pomp and glory. ThiBis the simple fatory of the resurrection on that first liastor morning; the empty tomb and a divine lovo. Marv earned her consolation by her humility and if you learn tholessonofhumlllty of thisEaster morning you will gain a joy that cannot be disturbed by sin. REFORMER YROOIAN HERE He Will Make Two- Addresses In Washington. Career of a Remarkable Man Who Ha3 Done Mrfca For the Poor and Lowly On Earth. Rev. Walter Vrooman, who may be not inaptly termed the conservative-radical in modem reform thought, is to arrive in Washington to-day anddellvertwoaddresscs 4u tills city. Mr. Vrooman has Deen packing theaters In the principal cities in the northeast with audiences representing all classes of the people. His tour Is to be supplemented by similar revivals ot interest In the cause of true reform in the principal cities and towns ot the country. Long nnd prominently Identified with the reform cause, Mr Vrooman is amply equipped by experience and study to give it new life and luster wherever he goes. Gifted as a public speaker with peculiarly fascinating power, bis abilities as an en tertainer on the platform equal his fervor as a reformer. He has secured one ot the very finest stereopticon outfits in America, produc ing niagnulcont pictures jii brmiuiit col ors, twenty-five feet In diameter, with which his lectures are Illustrated Iu a manner to impress the buhotder for all time. He will give a panoramic view of ltie a3 i is 111 ihe fcociui cellar and the parlor, and th" stones he will tell humor ous and pathetic stories of life, love and labor, will prove absorbingly interesting from beginning to end. No young man on the lecture platform in America lias had a more eventful ca reer than Walter Vrooman. As a boy he was knownin the West as an enthusiastic agitator for reform. The fire of enthusi asm still burns within him. He is a mem ber of the Arena staff, a national organizer of the Union for Practical Progress, and the founder of the New York Society for Parks and Playgrounds for Children. In this society were associated such well known men as Bishop Henry C. Potter, Abram S. Hewitt. Rev. Charles H. Park hurst, Prof. Felix Adler. Hon. Hewitt J. Seligman and many others. As a result o' ttie organization of lius society by Mr. Vroomau, from two to three million dol lars have been expended in behalf of the tenement bouse children of New York. The P'cture tour will take In the prin cipal cities and towns of Maryland, Vir ginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illi nois and Missouri, and promises to result iu a veritable reform revival. DIt. SUXDEKLAXD OX IR03HSES. Hotter Not To ilnke Them Than Not To Keen Them. The sermon St the First Presbyterian Church yesterday morning was delivered by the pastor. Rev. Byron Sunderland, on "Promises," his text being takeu from the sixth chapter of St. Luke, the -iGtb verse, "And why call ye me Lord, Lord aud do not the thing3 which I say." 'Profession ai.d pract.ee do not always coincide," tegan Mr Sunderland. "Men had better not promise than promise and not fulfil. Don't make too many promises, for Eaying ai.d not doing Is dh honest and degrading. The wretchedness flowing from the source ot vain promises is unmerciful and destruction of honor and Eadnet of heart comes irom saying and not doing. The whole value of a promise lies in its being kept. "Everything in natnie gives promises of good things to come, and the happiness of the world is that nature always keeps its promises. No government can be htable unless it keeps its promises, and bo it is in every human business. The duty ot a Christian does uot lie chiefly in his sayings, but in his doings. It is better tor a man to live in his religion and not say it than for him to say it Cud uot live in it. It would not be strange if on lte great judgment day men had more to answer form idle words than in evil acts. The point ot all this Is, there is no use of us makirg professions of re ligion if we do not intend to live up to them. Practice is the highest kind of profes sfon." CTjrS OK TOE LORD. Tin Dippers filled With Pure "Water aro Such. Say Rev-. Dr. Todd. "Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of the devils; ye cannotbe partakers of the Lord's table and the table of devils. Corinthians,-x, 21." This was the text from which Rev.E S. Todd, the pastor, preached on "The cup of the Lord and the cup of the devils," te a very large congregation attheHamline M. E. Church, corner ot Ninth. andP streets, yesterday morning. "Christianity," said he, "is dominant over every part of our being. The Corin thians thought that when they had done reverence to their gods each in his proper time and season, they were freed from all further obligations; they thought that religion had a claim over but apartot man's nature. As a consequence, among the Corinthians, one might have been very re ligious and very immoral. "Hut the christian must serve Jehovah and noae other. Christianity goes into the religious social, business and private life, controlling the whole man. You cannot serve God and Mammon; you cannot drink of the cup of the Lord andTthe cup of devils. "WUat arc the cups of the Lord and the cups of devils? 'Whosoever shall give a cup of cold water in my name, shall have his reward.' " This the speaker found to be a key note of Christianity, as a symbol of self-sacrifice for others. "Whenever," he said, "I see a public fountain with a tin dipper chained to it, I feel like going up and inscribing upon it, This is the cup of the Lord.' It was this cup from which SirPIullip Sydney quaffed when, in the Penins'tlar campaign, wounded and feverish, lying on the field of battle, he gave the waterbroughttohim to a dying soldier, saying: "Take and drink, tny need Is greater than mine." There is a new aristocracv crowing in the world the aristocracy ot those who labor for others. "The Scriptures are the great cup of the Lord. The cup jn the Scriptures represents God's providence, which he mixes for each according to his need3. The one cup of sal vation 111 the world is the New Testament. Men should learn to take the cup of God's providence as he mixes it for them. "O, invisible sptnt ot wine, since I have no other name for thee I will call thee devil,' " quoted the speaker. Intemper encc Is the besetting sin of the Anglo-Saxon race that they inherited from their beer loving ancestors. A cup of devils la the cup from which mothers with tears and prayers warn young men. But the cup of devils and thecupor wrath do not come from God. They come fromthe weaknesses of men and the malice of the Evil One. People make their own hell, 5ke the sinners of the old black auntie, Doy all takes dere brimstone wid dem." ItlBnotthegoodinthecommunltywhomake the dark i:tis and gruesome piibons.
