Latest Styles In Trimmed Millinery. Becoming Picture Hate-Path ions In Jewelry. There are toqnes and toques, bat the new shape is altogether different from those of last year, boing larger and more important. The shape is modeled on the hat in which King Hal is gener ally represented, but it is with a differ n % & smi I 1 ? .V ✓4 THE NEWEST TOQUES. cnca Adapted to ladies' wear, the vel vet is formed into many folds at the brim, and the trimming is often ar ranged in a point in front. The sable toques with large upstand ing yellow and gold osprey are very charming indeed. There are some pretty bridesmaids' hats in white velvet with white feathers and osprey and red roses. The toreador very mneb enlarged is a shape that takes well. Many of the large hats are exceedingly pictoresqne. Included with new importations is a Sappho toque in cerise velvet, trim med with a lace aigret and feathera A toque in beaver colored velvet, with a fully draped crown and brim, turns up sharply on one side and is supported un derneath by a quantity of parma violets, which form, in fact, the whole side of the toque. Very charming is a gray vel vet toque embroidered in silver and plentifully trimmed with birds and a rouleaux of velvet. Conspicuous among the picture hats is a velvet one in the new capucine shade. The brim is edged with white laee, and there are velvet rosettes nnder the brim Another pretty large hat is made in soft beaver in a beautiful shade of castor, the shape being one which is exceedingly becoming.

It is surprising what a change has come over our women folk since they who object to the regular bloomer or other bifurcated garments have taken to the short skirt The principal objection to the old bloomer was its lack of neatness, it is true that a few women looked well in bloomers, but the general opinion was that as a rule they were a Hut failure and about us attract ive as football trousers. The new bloouier legging lias a distinct style of its own, says a writer in the Pliiladel pbia Press. A skirt is to bo worn oyer it to the knee, but below the legging part ends in a sort of gaiter, covering the stocking and shoo and serving the double purpose of protection from cold and dampness. The upper part is not bulky, and the lower part fits the leg snugly from the knee down. The gar ment is generally made of jersey cloth because it clings so well to the figure, Black is the most serviceable color, but dark blue and brown aro always to be relied upon to produce good effects One fair Philadelphia bicyclist has had a , pair of the new bloomer leggings made entirely of chamois leather which lias 1 been stained a soft tan color Another pair made by the same dealer is of thin dogskin. .As every bicyclist knows, there : is an advantage about having a garment of the sort made from some kind of This not only protects | the knee from bumps and bruises, but saves the garment from being torn dur- j tougli material iug a fall npon sharp stones.

Tbo most attractive decoration for the hair is a diamond ornament of broad iucliuutiou aud glittering surface.

Counselor O'Brien's Legal Examination. " Major McKinley " as a Punter. They Filled the Hole. Counselor Bill Brien tells the follow-' ing story of how lie passed his examina tion as connselor at law and obtained his license: "1 bad my papers filled out and walked over to Judge Joe C. Gill to puss my examination and have my papers signed. It was in the forenoon, and Judge Gill, who was an ardent and successful turfman, bad Orphan Girl in training for tbo Maxwell House stakes, to be run at Nashville, and Brakenmn, who was thought to have a pretty good chance of winning the Merchants' stakes at St. Louis, both races being set down for the same day. "I walked into his office with my pa pers in my hand, and looking up pleas antly the judgo greeted me as follows: " 'Good morning, William. I under stand yon want to pass your examina tion and be a lawyer?' " 'Yes, sir, that's what I'm here for this morning. ' "'Were you out at the track this morning to see the horses taking their work?' '"Yes, sir.' " 'Did yon see that Kentucky crack, Lelox, and my mare Orphan Girl work?' " 'Yes, sir. They both went a mile, and you know the track was a bit slow. Orphan Girl finished up strong and swinging all through the last furlong in 0:47, and Lelox was all out and had the boy kicking him in 0:47 ) 4 - ' " 'I reckon my mare has a pretty good chance for the Maxwell?' " 'It looks like a certainty. Lelox is all she has to beat, and he's as good as done already. ' "'What kind of a plan would it be to send Alcock to St. Louis with Brake man for the Merchants' stakes?' , " 'The horse is good now, and he has nothing to beat over there. Land him in St. Louis all right, and it's as good as a walkover. ' " 'I think I'll send him. Let me see —ah, I thought I was forgetting some thing. We forgot all about the exam ination. Hand me your papers, Wil liam, and see me sign them. ' '' Counselor Bill walked out with his duly attested license, and a short time later Judge Gill won the Maxwell House stakes and the Merchants' stakes with Orphan Girl and Brakeman.—New Orleans Times-Democrat. Moving " Major McKinley." As a punter Major McKinley would shine on any college football team in the country. The " major' ' butted a full grown man over a wire fence the other day. Having thus finished the game, the sportive buffalo bull walked demure ly into a box car and started for his former home at Newport, N.H. It was Keeper Morrison who played the role of pigskin at Van Cortlandt V* m '/ p; i r k. xho herd of buffaloes sent to the park two years ago by the Austin Cor |,ji t estate was being shipped back to ,j )e reserve. The city grew weary of the animals and induced the estate to take t jj em a way. Five hours were expended loading S!l buffaloes iuto six cars. Major McKinley, the boss of the herd, balked at the outset, and Morrison said he would lead the big beast. Instead the "major" led Morrison to the fence and punted him through the wires, bruising him badly in several places. Tbo keeper remained on the other side of the fence.—New Y'ork Journal, Twins, Quadruplets and a PostofHce. Postmaster E. T.

When the pedestal of the statno of Blair which Missouri has presented to Statuary hall was standing in that, ] la n the other day awaiting its bronze figure, some one noticed that iu tho oeu ter of tho stone block was a small, square bolo. Tho Missouri delegation was presout to watch the placing of the statue, and one of the congressmen, fishing through his pockets, found a cent. He pot the coin in the square hole, and also deposited a bit of paper with his antograph. The example was contagious. Every membor of tbe delegation put in a cent aud Ids name, some curious bystanders did likewise, and by the time that the statue was plaoed in position there was almost enough copper in tbe pedestal to sheathe a ship. —Washington Post.
