The cornerstone of the evangelical Lutheran Church of Our Saviour will be laid Sunday afternoon, at three o'clock, by the Rev. E. VV. Fulper, pastor of the church. The new church will be on Bergen avenue, at the head of Atlantic street. A very fine programme has been pre pared. The music will be furnished by the vaster choir of the church. The pastor will lend in the responsive read ings and prayer, which will be followed by an address by the Rev. J. B. Remen snyder, I). I)., LL.l).. nresident of the New York and New Jersey Bynod.

Mr. Clare and L»r. Studebaker, and the Revs. J. Hingel and Eugene Neude witz, of Jersey City. A GREAT EVENT. This laying of the cornerstone is a great event in the short history of the church. In liXAi the church, under the pastorate of the Rev. E. W. Fulper, began, its work in Arcanum Hall, on Clinton and Jackson avenues, with thirty members. It has been .hard, uphill work, hut now the membership is two hundred. The Sunday school lias also made com mendable progress. That started with thirteen children and three hundred are now oil roll. The people of the church have wanted a building of their own to worship in and they have worked hard by getting up fairs, sociables, picnics and entertainments to raise the money. , i ney nave sueeeueu m raising almost all I of it and the rest has ben secured by I bond and mortgage. They hoped to hold their services in the new chnrch by No vember, but, on account of the strike among the stone workers, they will not be able to worship there until January. The principal organizers were: Messrs. W. H. George, L. H. Miesegaes, Henry Isaacson, Joseph Sehwarzwalder, Henry Law, August Frank and Peter Clos, Sr. The church council are Rev. E. W. Fill-, Sr., Treasurer; G. W. Renther, Secre tary; Henry Gleb, Martin Kimpel, Paul Burde, August Frank and Joseph j Schwnrzwalder. The architects of the new edifice are Dodge and Morrison of Wall Street, New York, and the builder is Leopold Kremer. tiOXV THE uHL'RCH WILL LOOK. The chnrch will be of stone, with large per, president; Messrs. Alf. Rrorstrom. stained glass window's. The church au ditorium will be iu the front. The Snn day Schond room will be in back of the auditorium and connected with it by | rolling doors. When the doors are opened I the church and the Sunday School room will seat from seven to eight hundred people and perhaps more. The primary department room will he by itself. This will seat from one to two hundred. An j other room right next the church, will j be used ns the ladies' parlor. The prind i pal meetings of the ladles will be held | there. Another feature of the huiiding will ! be a large kitchen. This is very essential | to the modern church. The entertain ! ments of to-day must have refreshments and refreshments must be prepared somewhere, so the easiest way is to have a kitchen attached to The church, and so there U a fair prospect of sociable* and entertainment* from January on. j t'i > • ■ -- «• t -K i ' '• .......

WOMAN'S WORLD. “What article of jewelry will rage next fall and winter?’’ repeated a fashionable Washington jeweller to a “Star” man the other day. “The bracelet, never en tirely gone out of fashion, will once more appeal to women’s fancy as hard as it j will hit th urscs of their husbands and sweethearts. “The new bracelet will be jewelled, and all man and womankind may rejoice that the bungled bracelet has died a death from which i't is never to be res urrected. Bracelets set in jewels are, of course, very costly, but the real thing will be at once seized upon by the mak ers of what is called cheap jewelry, and after a few seasons a new form of per soual adornment will catch the feminine eye, and it will pass, as have other fads in the jewelry line. “A feature which will be found to be pleasing in the jewelled bracelet will be the many and diverse forms and set tings and the use of all the different jew els known to the jeweller’s art,, from the diamond to the garnet. The design ers are already, at work upon the new creations i norder to have them on the market for the fall trade. I received a letter from our correspondent in Paris a day or so ago, in which lie adverted to the novelty as turned out by the con tinental past masters at the trade, and American women may look forward to some beautiful and unique designs in the shops when they return from their sum mer outing. There are so many different colored stones, and which vary so in price, that it is possible to create designs and arrangements of colors and gems that will be irresistible to those who have The money to spend, while the cheaper but nevertheless attractive stones will answer for those who are not classed among the wealthy. If a woman has a pretty arm a jewelled bracelet sets its contours off to perfection, and if her arm be not rounded the bracelet lends an added charm. “Necklaces set along the lines of the jeweled bracelet will be a fitting accom paniment to tlie wrist adornment. Pearls or diamonds are the almost universal necklaces worn now, but the mixed pew elled circlet will prove an agreeable change and the possibilities of the, jew eler’s art are almost without limit as to designs and settings. “Speaking about fads for women in jewelry,” continued tne expert. "I am reminded how the barette or pin, which is fastened in the back twist of the hair, has lasted. For several seasons about every woman you have met, from the rich to the poor, has worn this rather pretty iiair piece, in all the conceivable shapes and sizes. It 1ms been like the Panama hat for men. and like the Pana ma hat. the fa dwill fly away some day and be forgotten. “It is so with tlie thumb ring. Act resses and some fashioname women have tried to make the thumb ring a ‘go.’ and this misplaced ornament has had osmewhat of a vogue. The wearing of the ring upon the thumb, however, with eight fingers upon which the rings may be worn more sensibly anu to better ad vantage. has not appealed to women who are apt to apply common sense in the adornment of their persons by artificial means, while men have almost universal ly sneered at the fashion as being utterly inane. I have seen men smilingly draw a check for a large smn for a finger ring or a necklace, and scowl as from an at tack of indigestion when their attention has been invited by their better halves to ‘a real, sweet little ring for the thumb.’ Perhaps it is because women know that men inwardly ridicule the practice, where they lack the courage to openly condemn it. that accounts for the reason why the thumb ring has not become a universal fad, nnd let us give thanks. “It is so with the little cane for wom en. of which, by the way, we sell many, but which are seldom seen upon the streets. To the mind of most men a woman carrying a cane is like the thought of a man carrying a parasol— the former is absolutely nnfemiuine. The excuse advanced for the fad t)int it gives a woman something to carry in her hand is not accepted except in contempt. Our sales prove that these canes are purchased, but the fact that they have not become popular to parade with would tend to confirm the thought that once a woman gets one at hojne she realizes that at home she should leave it when she goes out for her afternoon stroll.” ' * Flat hair decorations are the rule for | evening this season. Anything approach- I ins; height is tabooed. Wreaths aud gar lands and flat rosettes and mashed-down ehoux are the chosen devices, rather than aigrettes and plumes. A young girl’s way of arranging the I hair for evening calls is a parting at the side from which the locks wave grace fully over the temples, with a speeia! ringlet falling forward at the part. Above this ringlet rests a single rose, another I rose appearing at the same side behind the low coil on the neck. There is a great fancy for repeating the hair decoration in this way. rose at the neck where the coil is and an other near the bang or parting are the prettiest ways of carrying ont the idea, A head with its hair massed midway in the back has a rose at the apex of the mass, while another rose nestles close among the scolding locks at the neck. This arrangement is especially charming as seen from the side, yet it is to be no ticed that the front hair is heavily j banged. Of all things to avoid in hairdressing j to-day the old-fashioned “ondulations” | are the mui nthiug. If not naturally cury you may wave and puff and ringlet your curls, but refrain from “ondulating" them if you would look in the mode. Most of the women who went In so heavily for “ondulating!’ a; few years ago ! hare given it up. But one reason for that isb because they hart no bmr let to “on-: X ‘ '' dulate.” • * , This reason the complaint of the part nerlcss maiden is much more pronounced than it has ever been before. Indeed, there is a something very like revolt among the neglected fair, says London "Express.” Many girls are feeling it so keenly that they are actually refusing to go to dances. There is no reason tvhy they should stand it. It is intolerable neglect, they say, and therefore they wont. “It makes me feel miserable and humiliated,” exclaimed one of this win ter's buds vehemently, “to be standing up with a smile on my face and waiting for a young man who fails to come. I do not mind going to dinners and very small dances, perhaps, where I have a fair chance, but no more balls for me, thank you.” It seems that nice, attrac tive girls are left out of dances by the dozens this winter, and the couseqqnenee is that they go to them- as if it were to their executions. Certainly, it must be very humiliating to be placed in such a position at a big dance, and many mourn ful maidens declare that unless they have partners for every dance before hand, which few of them ever have, such is their predicament. “It isn’t as if we like dancing,” declared one pretty girl the other day, “though, of course, we like it very much. It is being on appro bation for young men to take or leave, as they feel inclined.” * * * An odd and handy pin cushion is made by taking a small Japanese doll and placing it in a sitting posture. Make a small bag and slide the doll into it as far as the waist, first stuffing the bag with brail. Dress ttie upper part of the doll with kimona of some bright silk, ana let it fall below the waist. The bag covering should he of the same material as the kimona. * * * , A big show of white ribbon striped with btack and having something of a gray effect, trims a deep straw-colored hat, which is finished around the edge of the rim with small black berries and narrow gray-green leaves. * * * The old-time housewife who used to fill her big open fireplace in summer with mosses of feathery asparagus or “bnyberry branches” solved a problem in decoration quite as effectively for those faraway times as the modern woman does today. Elorists are called in to aid the twentieth century woman, however, where the old-time housekeeper had to rely on her own ta^te. The fireplace screen is made of heavy wire wrought and twisted. Tendrils and ribbons of wire form brackets, which now sinaii poi» ruunumue . - These twine and curve about the screen and hide the fireplace from view with a curtain of green. A simple way of concealing the fire place is to fill it with pine boughs, which can be obtained almost anywhere around the country. A long box filled with earth can be set in the fireplace and planted with tall growing plants, like the lily or iris. These will conceal the fireplace effectually. The box can be made more elegant by in closing it in sheets of hammered brass or copper. Tiles can be used if desired. A suggestion of ‘‘good old times is seen in the crane set up in the fireplace and an old pot hanging thereon, filled with growing plants. This is more ap propriate for n cottage fireplace than for a stately summer residence, yet a cop per or brass kettle may be used with good effect in the fireplace of a handsome summer house. English ivy will grow well in a fire place. in vases filled with water. If earth is used to grow the ivy in. mix it well with a good portion of sand. • * * For a number of years a distinguished French physician. Hr. Bertillon, has "been making observations pertaining to the habit of finger-nail biting. The facts which he has gathered, states the Lon don “Globe.” show that the habit is a re sult of a . diseased nervous system. Ho examined the pupils in a number of schools. The habit is much more prev alent among girls than among boys. lit some schools 50 per cent, of the girl pu pils had contracted the habit. It was noted that the nail biters were the poor est student. The habit prevails most frequently between the ages of 12 and 14. ^ ^ Heavily fragrant, snowily white, the gardenia is the flower of fashion. Of course, the sheaf of American Beauties, the spray of orchids, the bunch of dainty sweet peas or lovely lily of the valley, has just as big a place in the fashionable affections as ever, and will continue to be showered upon Fortune’s favorites in the good old way. But all that doesn’t prevent the gar Ml from possessing that bit in advance the cachet of fashion. Its present price is good, too, 25 cents a flower, as against ?I in winter! It makes the ideal bouton- j niere for masculinity at the ubiquitous June weddings. As for the gentler half, they wear it singly or in corsage sprays. A single one in the hair is very effective if it be becoming. . * . An elegant cover for a baby carriage, white satin, painted with n spray of American Beauty roses, lias been made by o local artist.

Al- ■ most instantly afterward a smarting cut on my leg told me I was wounded there, and before I bad time to think of it his sword had sliced the lower part of my left cheek. All the time not a word was spoken, ! not a moment’s breathing space made - in the fighting. We eyed each other in grim, deadly animosity, and, except that there was a brighter gleam of vindictiveness and pleasure when he wounded me, there was no change in the fierce intensity and blood lust with which his eyes held mine. I saw that I should be certainly kill ed if I kept mg the defensive only. I should either De backed to pieces grad ually or grow too weak from loss of blood to parry his more dangerous blows. I changed, therefore, suddenly, and, with something of the wildness of a beast at bay when it scents death, I began to cnt and thrust at him with all the strength I could muster, pour ing in my blows with such rapid vio lence that twice in as iMmy minutes I broke down his guard and wounded him. We were both bleeding badly now, and my antagonist was breathing very heavily with the fatigue of the combat, but my rage had laid hold of me now, and, though I was cool and wary enough outwardly, I fought with all the fiery vehemence of desperation. My greater strength soon told, and I rained in my blows with such staggering ra pidity that he could scarcely fend them off. and at that I saw a look come into his eyes which spoke of his conviction that I should beat him. This girded me to still further exer tions. Now was my chance or never, and a minute later the end came. Mak ing a rapid feint, I put all my strength into a terrific stroke which he tried in vain to parry. It crashed through his guard and slashed into his sword arm with such force as to nearly sever the limb from the body. His sword went clattering to the ground and hung help less by his side, the blood gushing out in Bpurts that told of a severed artery. He gave himself up to death like a brave man and faced me calmly. “To the death, sir!” he said, speaking for the first time since the fight began. “To the devil!” I answered. “Do you take me for a butcher?” He could stand no longer and sank half fainting to the ground. “I must bind up that arm or you’ll bleed to death before help can come.” “No, no! Fly. sir!” he said, his voice now weak. “You will be caught here, and then”— I wasted no time in words; but, tear ing a sash from his waist, I managed a rough kind of tourniquet and so stop ped the rush of blood. As I was finish ing I heard steps approaching the barn. He heard them too. “Fly, fly! be whispered. Catching up my coat and sword, I ran toward the door. “D'Aguilar, D’Aguilar,are you there?” I recognized the major’s voice, but made no reply. The big, unwieldy door swung back, and Major Montrey came in. He saw me and put himself in my path. “What’s the meaning of this? You can’t pass!” he cried. “Fore God. man. have a care!” I cried furiously. “Stand out of my path or I’ll cut you down.” But he stood his ground and called for help. In a moment I was on him. Lifting my sword on high and'uttering a fear ful oath, 1 dropped my coat and rushed at him. “That man’s wounded,” I cried and. catching up my coat, dashed out into the dark. I ran almost straight Into the arms of the soldiers who were has tening up in reply to the major's cry for help. “Who goes there?” they cried, and I heard the ring of their carbines. I did not stay to think, but flung my self on the nearest and drove him with all my might against his companion, setting them all in confusion, and be > _ " What's the meaning of thief" fore they had recovered from the con fusion I had darted into some shrub bery that bordered the spot.

I was In the act of , mounting when gome one rushed through the gate and called my name. It was Lota. “I was going to let you ot_< of the shed when I found you had escaped,' Fritz,” Bhe said. “And then I'came to wait here by your horsfe. f Axe you safe?” | A ^ At that instant the notes of a bugle rang out, calling the men to motmt. “My darling child, you must not stop here!” I cried, pressing my lips to hers. “I must not stay either. They know the road I must take, and in a minute I shall have the whole gang at my heels and the countryside roused in pursnit of me.” “Oh, it is terrible, it is terrible!” she sobbed. “Take me with you. Fritz! They will kill me for this night’s work.” “My dearest, I dare not My horse could not possibly carry us both, and we should be caught before ,we bad gone a mile.” “Forgive me! I know, I knowl But I am mad at having brought you to this. Goodby. God bless you, Fritz, husband, even if I never see you againl” she cried. It was agony to leave her, but it would have been death to have taken her. I strained her to my heart, and even ns our lips met I could hear my j pursuers in the distance. My heart,was ' torn at the pain of leaving her, but there was no other course. I ciambered into the saddle, bent down for a last caress and dashed off , along the pitch dark road at top speed, ! glad she did not know of my wounds. ir l naa not Known every step or my . road, I could not have escaped. After 1 half a mile at a mad gallop I put my horse at the low hedge by the roadside j and struck out a bee line across coun try. It was heavy going and- treacher- ; ous, but it saved a very considerable : distance, and when I emerged on to the road again I could hear nothing of the : troopers. I let my horse get his wind, there fore, and waited until I caught sound of the men again before I pricked for ward once more at the gallop. I knew of another point where I could take a short cut, but this time I was delayed by the very heavy going, and when I reached the road again I found the men close behind ino. A loud shout soon told me they had heard the sound of my horse’s hoofs, and a moment later they commenced a desultory dropping fire .with their car bines. I began now to despair. I was near ing a village where I had come across a scouting party on my way out, while my horse was beginning to feel the ef fects of the big effort be had had to make. But I set my teeth, drove my heels into his willing sides and resolved to hold on till he dropped or one of their chance bullets should hit me. I encour aged him with words and caresses as well as the spur, and he seemed to feel the danger as much as L As I clattered Into the village I look ed eagerly ahead and around, and, to my infinite relief, there was not a sign of the scouting party., But my pursu ers were closing up behind me, while the shouts they sent up brought the few people who were still out of their beds running to doors and windows to watch the strange race. I ua<l ODiy two allies lariucr w uuc now, but as I left the village street anil splashed on between the hedgerows again my heart sank suddenly. The rain had stopped and the sky lifted a bit, and at the top of a short, easy slope I saw drawn up across the road, their figures blackly silhouetted against the sky line, a cordon of horse men. It was all over. I waSj caught be tween the two parties. I' drew rein, pulling my faithful beast almost on to his haunches, and glanced desperately at the tall hedges on either side to see If I could possibly leap them. They were hopeless. Had my horse been fresh and myself unwoueded I could not have dashed' through them. But my one forlorn chance now was to make the attempt. I backed my horse to one side and was about to dig the rowels into him and urge him to an ef fort when my heart gave a leap of joy. “Who goes there?” The challenge was In German, and in less time than it takes to tell it I was ■ among my own men. safe, though al most fainting from fatigue and loss of blood. .
