The blouse which was so popular while
5t lasted'has disappeared entirely from
the scene of things, and all of the pew
traveling ^fme^ts are intended either'to
define th^^ghS' cleverly or els to mask
it completely. There are spate very fas
cinating shaps which the slender woriian
who carries well will welcome de- j
Voutly. for theli^&r.e the slopes that are
especially nrf^jyytliarlv her awn; none
others can adopt them without detriment
to the whole appearance.
These are fashioned after the godet
order, a new style that Paquin is partic
ularly partial to, arid one which he has
been chiefty*.instrumental in making fash
ionable. Tlijf „%flnent sets smoothly
over the shpulders. and from there it
falls iu evey,.^creasing folds to the feet,
where thh. some half a dozen
yards at leqsK^aJ^ Ofteutimes much
more. TU& slaglfHiJo this wrap is one of
the most Nothings that has been
presented for a long time, for its start
from the shoulder, rttos down into the
side seams wror-tnSafeu pleats and par
takes at t^p same time of a cape sleeve
and a dolman. A fiat collar of velvet on

but qiiaintiy“<Marn®tg sleeve, makes the
requisite touch of contrast, and a vest,

inserted stopping short of

Tontional-amount of u-degramentmg is
another matter.
An experienced maker? of gowns and all
that pertaWdsjtapijiine outfits says that
for winter and cool weather the ideal ilh*
del-garment next to thw skin is the union
suit of thin wool; or sllg>and cotton. Over
♦his comes some warm, substantial
bloomers. Then the corset and one nice
skjf t for dress occasions.
This skirt may be dispensed with for
the walking or shopping tonr when the
woman is out for exercise, and health
and not on dress parade. The walking
length skirt is never so long aftto require
holding up, and the woman who goes out
for her morning walk goes out not to
dawdle. If for warmth, however, a pet
ticoat is needed, it may be added; but
few women who have not tried doing
without the petticoat know how easily it
may be dispensed with.
The fullness of the bloomers must not
be set into a band at the .waist; a yoke
at least six inches long, shaped to the
figure, must be ubed instead of the band.
and this will bring the fullness down so
low that it will mot spoil fthe contours i
Of the figure and .will permit the. corset to ,,
be worn oVfcf it if so desired,
tr
ill the winter white skirts should never
be worn on the streets, and even in the
warmest weather they may be omitted
except ,fbg. the thin evening gowns or I
white ffiilue or linen gowns. J
The different types of women s clothes J
one sees at the summer resorts are really !
astonishing. Women, evert- in this late j
day, disregard fashions quite as-much as j
, they ever d'd. and tier are displayed
some very amusing fashions on some I
very amusing people. It seems rather un
called for, this negligence, as it might be i
termed, on the part of members of the
feminine sex, to fail in their general ap
pearance. It is within woman's power
and is an important part of women to ;
dress becomingly, even tli»ougU their
pocke(books arc limited.
On seme of the; very farmest days at
.-he ser-kcr? a wcSian will saunter into
;iio dining-room of her hotel robed in, ,
perhaps, a beautiful gown of heavy bro- .
cade silk, and her mere presence will put
to discomfort all of the other guests woo
ire tryiafe their best to feel and look
-•ool. It is net because this woman does
r.et own mere summer gowns, but simply
because of Ink of1 judgment. Then, on ;
•;-e other band, one will see peek-a-boo
frocks or. nights cold enough to call for ,
a heavy wrap.
BfcpDci-aUy noticeable are styles at v-i- i
-ration places, ar.fl H is amusing to see •
vfa&en to whom rhe present fashions i
are not at all becoming wear of the •
most freakish gown-' and bats. Tf they
would only sec that some of the p**t j
■style* would become them, better and
that they wouM.be rho-ugbi. jus t as much ;
of aud they would look 100 per cent, j
better. A little woman will wear a j
gown made on. the meet slender lines, ;
while her stout sjster will kb sure to den
a gown with friils, ruffles and furbelows
which will add to her apparent avordu
pois considerably. Women of this na
ture invariably wear clothes which would
look better many miles away, mid the
tail, thin girl who -hast. no claim to grace
fulness has no fear of low necks, short
sleevs or long lines. In a crowd of wo
men it seems as if the smallest detail
were noticed and commented upon, and
that is the reason, perhaps, why women's
dresses are conspicuous.

Any foreign substance In the eye is
exceedingly painful, but if it is merely
lyiynyg thre and not lodged it can easily
be removed by drawing the upper lid
well down over the lower and then al
lowing the eye to be slowly opened. This
usually entangles the offending particle
in the lower eyelashes.
If the substance is not got rid of at
once it gives rise to great irritability of
the eye, causing-a, flow of tears, an in-;
ability to raise the upper lid’ifml thee
the light, and a distinct feeling of ir
ritation- and grittineiss.
The most difficult cases to treat are
those in which the eye has been burned
by a hot cinder. It causes great snffer

After its removal a drop or two of
olive or castor oil should be put in the
eye ,a bandage applied and no attempt
made ti> use ,the eye fjpr at least a cou
ple of days.
Aparticle of quicklime in the eye gwes
rise to very serious symptoms if not at
tended to at once.
The best application is vinegar and
water, which should be applied “freriyr
When the pain has been allayed a
drop -of olive oil should bf dropped in be

simple measures, for the eyey is a most
sensitive organ.

THE SACKED BO TREE.

aow i^'*«xist»p*j^^s: that by the cele
brated Chinese historian, Pa Hia'n,
who visited the island and the sacred
tree in the year 414 A. 0. According
to this learned Ghkmniftn, the tree was
at that time 7(fe years old, having
been planted ln'tlje year 288 before
our era by IC(ng Oevtnlptetissa.
As soon as It was known through
out the island thft the tree had been
destroyed by the fury of the elements
great crowds of mgurtaers gathered
around its “sacred remains” and held
regular funeral services for two or
three weeks. Afjer the season of
mourning was over the tree was cut
into proper lengths, each piece
wrapped separately in .white cloth and
! cremated with the same funeral rites <
| which would have been given a naem
| her of the royal family.
So perished the sacred bo tree, one
of the most wonderful natural growths
known to the world—a tree which had
been worshiped daily, one might al
! most say hourly, for 2tTK> years.

It is very curious that a taste for

Bed and yellow are the favorite colors
and tbe oldest. Of those, the coster
chooses bis plush woistceat and his

.The Origin ol Grocer.
Grocer appears in MoUnshed’s Cfcrbn-'
icle, 1580, as “grosser,” and in other
mediaeval records it is sometimes
written “ongrosser,” and was applied
to the spicers and pepperers who were
wholesale dealers in various spioes—
that is, who‘dealt en geos—In lajge
quantities, as distinguished from “re
graters,”,,who were retail dealers. The
Grocers’ company H hrst adopted the
word grocer in ^373, when the spicers
and pepperers allied themselves into a
single corporation—London Express.
