Style and Comfort.
One of the most painful facts in life is
the apparent impossibility of reconcil
ing' fashion and common sense. One
may be long on style and short on com
fort, or he may have comfort to burn ,
and give fashion the shake; but there
seems to be no all-around good thing, so
one may be swell and comfortable at the
same time. You must choose between
them. There is no good reason for this.
It is an arbitrary and unnecessary in
fliction, laid on a suffering world, and
one is forced to the conclusion that
nothing short of utter malignity could
have inspired many of the fashions un- |
der which we groan. There is not even
the excuse of beauty, for which one
might well endure many pangs of dis
comfort. There is nothing artistic in 1
a linen colar so high and stilT it looks
like an understudy of a terra cot fa
chimney flue. But it is full of suffering
and style. No one since the days of
.Mephistopheles ever had feet built after
the architecture of the pointed-toe
shoes. There is no beauty in them— !
nothing but aclies, and corns and fash
ion. When nature made lovely women 1
it wrote beauty in every soft curve of '
her body, but fashion never rested until
it squeezed and compressed her into the j
shape of an hourglass. She was too !
comfortable in flowing draperies that
fell in loose grace, and she was girded
up in stays, and smothered in frills,
and weighted down with ornaments in
the interest of the theory that style
and comfort could not be amalgamated.
Such being the ease, remarks the New
Orleans Picayune, it gives great pleas
ure to notice that a new fashion has
been introduced which happily com
bines the very latest wrinkle of fashion
with the most admirable common sense.
Recent dispatches from New York bring
the information that it is now custom
ary among the smart set to have danc
ing between the courses of elaborate
dinners. The swell dancing is varied
with cake-walks, skirt dancing unci
other edifying aids to digestion. The
possibilities this opens up to people of
epicurean taste are simply limitless,
and it is also beyond praise as a kind of
life-saving measure, as everyone at a
long dinner must have at some time felt
that the next course would be the death
of him. Then, too, this scores heavily
for us iis showing the advancement in
refinement that has been made since
the days of the banquets of Lucullus
and other swell dinner givers of an
tiquity. When their jaded appetites
gave out, they took a disgusting, if
simple, means of refreshing them, so
as to be able to take a fresh start all
over again. Now, we will simply arise
and execute a short but violent dance,
and be ready to do justice to the further
triumphs of the chef. No more dishes
served with sauce piquant or sauce Hol
landaise, but with an accompaniment
of Virginia reel, or a cake-walk, or a
highland fling, and good digestion will
wait on appetite. Another advantage
it oiYers is the spppression of the after
dinner orator. Fellows like Chauncey
I)epew will no longer have a monopoly
on a good thing because they can talk,
don't you know. On the contrary,
young fellows whose brains are in their
heels will be the bright, particular
stars that people who give fashionable
dinners will seek out. On the whole,
this readjustment of the etiquette of
dinner giving has everything to com
mend it, and will stand as a monument
to the genius who devised it.
Minnesota has a law to encourage tree
planting. A bounty of $2.50 an acre is
offered, and at least one acre must be
planted, while no one person can col
lect for more than ten acres in a year
or for more than six years. Any tree
but the black locust may be planted.
Last year bounties were paid t025 coun
ties for planting 0,524 acres. The law
has been in operation 1G years. In that
lime more than 100,000 acres have been
planted in trees. •

A WINTER never passes that I don't
recall the slide 1 once took down
Uiiureh hill when 1 was a boy, and lit
erally scraped acquaintance witfh a
double-runner sled.
We boys had been waiting for good
weather for coasting—"sliding," w
used to call it—and had waited a long
time. too.
There had been almost every other
sort of weather, and we hud managed to
enjoy ourselves pretty well, aa, in faoi,
we always did.
We had skated on Long pond, played
football on the commoo, and had a good
time generally—all except Jemmy
Briggs, who broke through the ice the
last day we skated, and was taken out
half drowned. But then, he waaalwaya
unlucky. 1 thinklhe was the unluckieat
boy I ever knew.
Well, at length, there came a dull,
chilly, cloudy afternoon, when every
thing looked cold and dismal, and the
sun set in a smother of gray vapor in
a sullen and comfortless sort of way.
"Snow to-night, beys, sure!" said
Tom Thurlow, us we came out of school
at four o'clock.
Tom was continually guessing at the
weather, and was usually about as far
out of the way usQie could posaibly be;
but this time he hit it right, for a won
der, and, sure enough, it began anowing
an hour or two afterward.
When I went to bed I looked out and
saw the ground all white in the dark
ness, and sheets of snow sifting down,
glittering in the light from the window.
There was no mistake about it-—it wu
a "regular old-fashioned storm.".
Next morning everything was buried
up. Opeining the back door, 1 saw a
high wall of snow outside of it, which
had drifted there during the night—
a. :d what fun it was to plunge into tiie
middle of it, all bundled up in overcoat,
comforter and mittens, with trousers
tied tight around my ankles, and to
wade through the drifts to the barn!
But it wasn't all fun when Glie tint®
came to shovel the paths and clear awny
around the big doors, for it seemed very
much like work—aud hard work at that
—before I got done with it.
Wasn't I glad when I (had lifted the
last shovelful and was able to straight
en my back again, and flounder away to
school? There I found the boys eager
ly discussing sleds, and there were a
great many noisy and not always good
natured disputes as to who had the fast
est one, and who could com® out ahead
in a fair race.
But our great topic of interest was
Frank Austin's new double-runner,
which had been built for him by a
wheelwright ut Centreville, on a scale of
magroificence said to throw everything
in town entirely into tlhe shade.
Frank was not very talkative on Ihe
subject—he didn't need to be, sine®
George Fox had seen it-. To have that
fellow know anything was just th®
same as to publish it in the new spapers.
So Frank stood by with a knowing
smile, while George described the sled
with much enthusiasm, and vowed h®
had never seen anything like it, which
was very probable.
Frank was a great man tlhai day, and
the boys weren't at nil backward about
asking him for n trip on the runner, un
til Frank, who was as good-natured ®nd
obliging as anyone could be, had prom
ised places enough to fill his sled sev
eral times over.
By the next afternoon the snow bad
been pretty well trodden down, and the
day fortunately happened to be Satur
day, besides; so Church hill became the
center of attrition, and if you had
been there about two o'clock you would
have seen nearly every boy in New Da
mnactis there, or going tlhere as fast as
he could, each one dragging his sled be
hind him.
It was a long, high hill, and the road
tc Centreville went over it at th® high
est part.
There was a turn iu the road near th®
bottom, which was sometimes a hard
place to get around if the ground wa®
slippery, ultthough, as a general thing,
we had no trouble.
I should think it was a good half mil®
from the top of the hill to the furthest
point we could slide to, and we usually
started a third of the distance below th®
summit, on account of the long walk
back; mid, indeed, timid coasters pre
ferred to do so under any circum
stances, some nerve being required to
start from the lofty top.
Frank and his double-runner were on
hand early, nnd we all took a good look
at the new machine. It was a long,
stout, hardwood plank, fast-fined on two
sets of runners, with a pivot on tfhe first
set, so that it could be easily steered.
The whole affair was neatly built and
prettily painted, but Tom said h®
thought it looked "rather ticklish." A
good many others thought the same,
but they didn't care to say so.
Most of us would have been willing
to take our chances on the runner if we
had been upon almost any other hill;
but wc didn't like tlhe idea of riding on
that narrow plank down this one. fall
ing off steeply, and so long that the
buildings near the foot seemed )ik®
baby houses. And then there was that
turn at the bottom.
"Well, fellows," said Frank. "I won't
make more than one trip this after
noon, if I don't got started pretty soon.
Come, help me haul her up to the top."
"Are you going to start from there?"
nsked several dismayed voice®.
"Yes, of course," answered Frank.who
was a brave, reckless lad, and was be
sides a little provoked nt our reception
of his sled. "When I slide, I want all the
slide there is."
We silently turned to and pulled the
runner to the highest point of the hill.
And it did seem dreadfully high up
"Who's going?" nsked Frank.
Yes, who was going? That was the
question. Those who bud been prom
ised places the day before uow aiiowed
surprising generosity in offering tfitir
ohances to their less fortunate compan
ions, and for a moment nobody re
Then, to everybody's surprise. Torn
Thuriow stepped forward aud said be
was going. He bad been the loudest in
predicting all kinds of disasters, and
bad just been vehemently asserting that
the start from the top Insured the death
of everybody foolish enough to go But
that was juat his way —grumble and
go In.
He took the end of the plank; Frank,
of course, sitting in front to steer. The
•pace between them tilled up quickly
enough, now that Tom had broken the
ica, aud there was quite s ru*Jt far seats
toward the last.
Tom gave a push with bis foot and
we began to move slowly daws the
"Bold on with your knees." shouted
Frank. "Sit straightt, and don't lean
There wasn't much necessity for the
first order after we got fairly started.
I. for one. wished I bad something more
to cling to than the narrow plank, to
which I glued my knees, while hold
ing up my feet on each side and con
vulsively grasping Jos Smith's wi*t
with my arms.
How that sled dld fly! We could hard
ly see the fence posta as we rushed by
tihem. The wind whistled through our
hair, brought the water to our eyes and
• blinding cloud af snow blew all over
us. Whenever we passed over s rough
place, thump we went into the air, like
rockets, and came down with another
thump on the bard plank, surprised to
find ourselves still on board. I could
feel Joe shiver through his thick clothes,
and was half choked by the tight clutch
of Jerry Waters, who sat behind. 2 sup
pose they were wishing, as I was. that
we were safe at the bottom, with un
broken bones.
Faster aud faster we flew, until we
must have been going at real railroad
speed, and it seemed like taking a trip
on a comet. How we managed to stick
to that sled as long as we did has aI
ways been a mystery to me; but kt
makes little difference, for ws soon
ceased to do so.
Suddenly there cams a tr.emendoua
twist and jerk, which threw us aJI vio
lently to one side. We bad reached lbs
turn in the road.
"Leau linrd to the right!" came Tom's
voice from behind, at the full strength
of his lunge.
I tried my best to obey, but it was
no use. The sled "slewed" with great
force, and we all went over together, 1
atill clinging to Joe, who was •triiggling
frantically to get loose.
A general feeling of being scraped
aud ground and pounded, another and
very unpleasant feeling, as if a bouse
had fallen on me, and theu 1 must have
beeu stunned, for I don't remember
what happened for a few momenta.
When 1 came to myself I found 1 was
helping Tom to lift up the sled, whiofli
hud been capsized at the roadside upon
a very mixed-up pile of boys who were
half buried In the deep snow. 1 sup
pose 1 got up und began iiftiug hefort I
had entirely recovered my senses.
It was "a bad mesa." as Tom calmly
remarked, while atoutly tugging away,
taking no notice of the blood which
trickled down hie face in little streams
until he looked like a zebra.
It took some time for all the boys to
get out. Then we counted up the dead
and wounded. There were fortunately
none of the former class, but almost
every one of us belonged to the latter.
Bleeding nosea, cut fingers, bumps,
scratches and bruLses were as plentiful
as blackberries in June, yet only one
was seriously hurt. That one was. of
course, unlucky Jemmy Briggs, whom
we had hauled out by the heels from a
drift into which he was stuck bead
His collar bone was broken and one
of his fingers put out of joint. He suf
fered a good deal, poor fellow, but he
was so used to pain and misfortune
that he made very little fuss about it.
and we carried him home quite comfort
The hoys left at the top hurried
down after us and helped repair dam
ages. They exulted over their good
sense in staying behind; but I think
they were rather worry the next Monday
at school, while we scarred veterans
were showing our wounds and descrlb
ing the accident to admiring throng*.
Frank Austin frit very badly about
the whole affair and said lie would never
use the sled again. None of us ever
naked him to. for we were thoroughly
convinced that, however well auch a
sled might do on lower and easier slides,
1 Church hill wasn't at all the place for
Frank's double-runner.—Golden Daya.
