y THE DAY OF HEAVY
YTEHIALS. y Winter Weather Brings Cold Proof Clothes to the Fore With New Ir'mmings. SKGULDERETTES OF LACE Tassella Much(Used As Well As Fringes—The Real Sig* niflcance of Christmas G*fta. With the snow and cold weather comet the call for heavier and wanner materi als. Zibelines, velvets and the heavier weight of broadcloth are the most popu lar. The lighter fabrics, such as voile and the rhiu broadcloth, while charmingly adapted to the present modes, are not quite so much favored now that warmth is most essential. For carriage wear the lighter fabrics may be satisfactory, but even in such cases it seems possible that the cloth gowns would be a wiser choice. Zibeiine seems to be the leading material, although broadcloth is a close second. Tue broadcloths this season are won derfully beautiful, both in texture and coloring. Many of them have a marvel ous gloss which sponging does not re move. There is also a new panne cloth, which has almost the gloss of panne vel vet, and velveteens were never so be&uti- I fui. Their quality lias greatly improved' j and their colorings and designs are all ! » that coaid be desired. In single tones j make charming street costumes, and i they sometimes come in two shades of j one color which are extremely attractive. Liberty velveteen* are having more pop ularity than ever, and they are even love lier in quality and color thou formerly, if that la possible. For the trimming of these gowns, hand embroidery is lavishly used,aud large but tons also play an important part. Whole coUarmrcvers and cuffs are formed! of the embroidery, or it is used in motif or me dallion form. It serves, too, for the wniat- j coat line which appears upon so many of the latest models. Openwork embroidery is employed to a great extent, and it is evidently gaining favor as the season ad vances. Braid velvet and fur also ate traed con* si lerably in the construction of the cloth frocks. As for buttons, the fad is quite apparent both on home and street cos tumes. Handsome large buttons are used, but it is the tiny one that creeps into every detail of the frock without even tin* poorest excuse of fulfilling a button's purpose. A number of the new models show the skirts buttoning snatight down the middle of the front with smallest of burtons. One decidedly chic frock shows the entire length of the sleeve where the cloth seemingly buttons over a broad’ band of lace running down the outside line of the sleeve. Tassels are another favorite trimming And new things in the line of fringes and pendant* are constantly appearing. A fringe of chenille balls about the sire of the ordinary marble is one of the latest fad.Inland is a very good finish for furs. Only one bftM is attached to each little stem, and these are very short. Shoulder ettes of tan lacs look very pretty over gowns of black or over shirt-waists of cluost any color, and tiys is a good hint fcr the woman who wishes to wear out her old silk waist*. 1 Cue feature of the shoulderc-tte is that it makes the shoulder seem a Ifct’e longer giving the slope which is so much ad inked. It al*o afford* a background up on which there con be worked the most exquisite color design*, and it give* an opportunity for the display of some fine handiwork. The newest one* are made with stock and shoulder cape attached, and are embroidered in Armeumn colors and designs. Others are embroidered in | fruit and great bunches of golden grape* j in silk and fine cloth are raised upon the delicate fabric of the lace. • • . Christmas has been so long associated In the popular mi ml with the exchanging of gift* that we have lost somewhat the l>- real meaning of these gifts, which art, indeed, only intended ns symbols of love and good will, says the “Woman's Home porrpauion.” Only to children do we \ .

S'..t TROTHBR5, ** Warren Street, Httr Tad* ' , . .. i REELS THIRTY Minn. Cal-curt Solvent, Dr. Kennedy’* NEW Medi cine, Warmly Praised by Mrs. Chaffet. When Dr. David Kennedy said he re. fi^rdei Cal-cnra Solvent, his new medicine tor the Kidneys, Liver and Blood, as the crowning achievement of his life, he made no mistake, as hundreds who have used it testify. Here is one letter from Mrs. A. F. Chaffee of Butland, Vt., short and to the point: "Dear Bin: I have never taken any medicine that ' did me so much good as Dr Kennedy’s ! lateet medicine, Cal-cura Solvent. I cut work hard all day and can do more work than I could even thirty years ago. I ara 6d years of age and never felt better in my i life" All druggists *100. give with that freedom and spontaneity which makes the gift more precious to the giver than to the recipient. To get as much as possible of this real old Christmas spirit toward one's fellows should be the engaging business of every one. We must be good to somebody on Christmas Day, and after buying toys for the children no one thing occurs to us that is so easy to accomplish and bo full of results as taking a lirtle thought for the lonely. Christmas is a festival of the family. But how many among our acquaintances are there t\ho have no fam ilies; how many excellent old bachelors and loneiy old- ladies! We do not mean the poor—there are plenty of philanthro pists to look after tktim, and they are us ually well blessed with families; but a man may be as rich as Croesus, and yet if he have no place to eat but a hotel he is poorer at Christmas than an Irishman with six children and only money enough for one meal. He belongs to a class which may wel ble an object of your solicitude Perhaps they could buy you out thrice over, but you have a home and they have not. Be good to them—ask j the lonely man to dinner. It is not for j the dinner's sake, but the spirit in which I you make them guests at your hou$e, i that these jonaly people will bless you. , And when they have told a story at your ! hoard, and dandled the children (if by about the fire in the evening, how much cheered and bettered they will go away; how it wfill warm their hearts to feel that some body cared enough for them to ask them to be members of a family even for a day. That is all Christmas is for—to show other people that we love theta, and to learn and be cheered by the thought that there are people who care about us. The unattached people scrape along after a fashion during the year, but at the holiday season they are in a cold world, and then, if ever, do they crave the thing which never comes truly into their live*; and you, if you have a home—only a little one—share it on Christmas Day with some friends who have none. -** CHIFFON VELVET. The Kew and Supple Weave Which Isas Become to Fashionable. Chiffon velvet has almost entirely supplanted the ordinary make of this material, for it is so snppie und so lus trous that even the beat silk velvet looks cheap by its side. At almost any smart function this winter chiffon velvet drosses prevail. They are made in elaborate tailor fash ion and are worn with handsome stoles of fur and much beplnmed toques. The most fashionable color seems to be gun metal gray, and the luster of omipfom tuth hat. tW» U toned down in spot* by manses of embroidery and deep gray and white fringe. Next in popularity comes an odd. rather silvery shade of brown, width goes particularly well with sables or silver fox} - In one of New York’s most fashion rble tea rooms recently no fewer than eight beautiful costumes in chiffon velvet of this shade were to be seen. There are also very smart gowns of black chiffon velvet trimmed with rich Irish lace and black chenille, but these are worn by older women. The dressy tailor made may be of <ray cloth or velvet, made with a bit of fringe or dyed lace and some pretty buttons. A white or gray lace waist may accompany this and a large gray and white plumed hat, In millinery chiffon velvet is posi tively unequaled, for It is light in weight and lends itself to intricate manipulation. The Lilusaratldn shows a hat of thisf velvet in a fawn shade. It is trimmed with a brown and green wing. JrraiC CHOLUBT. v- •.» -J- ; k GOOD IN PIE, CAKE AND PUDDIKC. NONE SUCH MINCE MEAT In lOo Packages with List of Valuable Premiums. ^mmmMMmMaj LAZY MAN’S PARADISE. The Women Are the Herd Workers la the West ladle*. On market day in the Weat Indies thousands of peasant women and girls can be seen walking along the roads to the town from their palm thatched huts in the mountains and woods. They carry on their beads immense loads of bananas, oranges, yams, plantains, brown sugar or tobacco, stepping along at tbe rate of four miles an hour with the gait of a princess. Constant carrying of heavy loads gives them a splendid carriage. They i will wait forty miles to market to sell 30 cents' worth of produce. Often they could sell the same stuff for a better ! price at their hemes, but they enjoy the merry company on the road and the fun and gossip of the market place too much to give up their weekly jaunt. Most people think such a tramp hard work, but they regard It as a picnic. Tramping along over rough mountain tracks, fording swift rivers, tugging fractions mules in the way that they should go. these womeh never let their loads fall. They could dance a jig without dropping them. Meanwhile the icon folk, who have not even taken the trouble to sow 'or harvest the crops, much less carry them to market, are sleeping in the palm thatched hut or lying down In the yam patch outside and smoking the strong native tobacco. “On my estate.” said a coffee planter to an American friend. “1 employ about 600 people In the busy seasons. The •women outnumber the men by more than two to one and do far better work, though they are only paid 18 cents a day as compared with the men's 24 cents. The difference in wages is most unfair, but it is regulated by an Iron' bound custom.”—Kansas City Star. J»Klr Bna*k*(plt(. The negro, housewife in the West In dian jungle finds housekeeping very easy. Friilt and vegetables grow wild all about the hut. and the river abounds with fish. . On wash day all she has to do is to pick a few of the berries of the soap berry tree, take her clothes to the river and use the berries as she would use ordinary soap. Even her cooking pots grow on the trees, the calabash cut in halves being used for this purpose. Calabashes are used also for bowls, ba Bius and, jugs for carrying water from the river, while the small ones make ex cellent cups. In the afternoon, when she ready for her cup of tea. the negress picks half a dozen leaves from the lime bush growing at her door, bolls them, squeez es the Juice from a sugar cane for sweetening, and the eoeounut supplies the milk. Thus she has a delicious cup of tea without depending on the grocer for it. She makes the mats for her floor out of the dried leaves of the banana, plait ed and sewed together, as the old coun try people in this country make their rag mats. Colchestef* Oyster Feast. Famous indeed is the Colchester oys ter feast, and to be invited it consid ered the highest compliment the town can -confer hot • only from the impor tance of the function, but because at that meal ls.an unlimited supply of the finest obtainable natives, of which some sacks arc consumed. Even from the times of the Romans these oysters have been celebrated, says the London Chronicle. Exclusive rights to the oys ter fisheries were granted to tiie town under a charter of Richard I., and in the reign of Elizabeth hors? loads of oysters were accepted as gifts by the courtiers of the time. Massinger’s Justice Greedy commences his day with “a barrel of Colchester oysters.” a statement that shows how altered are the customs of today. Who Hero Was, In the days when Sir Charles Gavan Duffy was a leading figure in Victo rian politics there sat in the Melbourne parliament a wealthy but not well in formed butcher. The chief secretary of the day was deprecating the atti tude of the leadlr of the opposition, whose conduct was. he declared, worse than Nero’*. “Who was Nero?” interjected the knight of the cleaver, with equal scorn and sincerity. “Who was Nero r* replied the delight ed chief secretary. “The honorable gentleman ought to know. Nero was a celebrated Roman butcher.”^Loudon U. A. P, ■ . \ Nmjj Injured. A man came in the police court at Ottawa the other day carrying a friend oh hit back. The judge said. "What’s the trouble?” The man said: "Judge, this man Is a friend of mine, and hla name la Gun. Now. judge. Gnn Is loaded. I know its against the law to carry a loaded gun on the streets* So I brought him here.” 1 , The judge 89id4*'Gun, you are dis charged.” And the next day the re port was la the papers.—Haworth (ill.)

He accepted the situation with be coming philosophy. “I and,” he said, “falat a man can't stand on his dignity and the back of his neck at the same time.”—Chicago Tribune. Wow.
