Seven new mnodelis in sashes and girdles are shown hero. Examples of all the pnoilar nrw ribbons apwar in the sash', pictured here. In Figuro 1, a he1110. .oft. mntissa line is shoran wahich mtakes tIli most graceful of girdlIs. This ionei is in a ideep rose color. The end of the girdle is tinilte d with a hmstitch.ed her,, IN an inch and a half wide, and a tuck of the same width. Back of this are two rows of shirring. A buckle is cut from buckram. It is between four and five inches long and half as wide as it is long. It is wrapped with nar row velvet ribbon in a dull, dark green and sewed to the girdle. Hook and eye fastenings are provided and the girdle is boned at the ends and sides. It is to be worn with the fastening at the back, front or sides, at the pleas ure of the wearer. Figure 2 is a similar girdle in a narrower and heavier ribbon. It is a gay Roman striped affair to be worn with cloth or other afternoon gowns and with street dresses. Its buckle is smaller and an oval form. The end Sis turned under, forming a three-inch loop. Very little ribbon is required for this, about three-quarters of a yard for the average waist. One of the prettiest designs is pic tured in Figure 3. It is a plain girdle of black satin ribbon having two ends finished with plaid ribbon. It is boned at the gathered ends and fastened with hooks and eyes. The plaid rib bon is machine stitched to the end with white silk thread. The plaid sash in Figure 4 is one of the smartest of the new designs. The buckle at the waist is made of silk in the prevailing color of the plaid and --r-.1 a second smaller buckle fastens the hanging loop and end together. A more expensive ribbon is used for the next model than appears in any of the others. In Figure 6 a silk and velvet is shown having a dark green ground in satin with roses in subdued colors and foliage in blurred outlines covering the surface. The girdle Is laid in loose, irregular folds and stayed with bones. The shorter end overlapping the girdle is thirteen inches long and the longer nineteen inches. The ends are finished with plain green velvet ribbon machine stitched to place. It is an inch wide. A gay ribbon in a broken plaid and new color is pictured In Figure 6. This is dark gray with blue and rose and gree in mamrkings and border. The bQckle is hin green velvet. A plain taflored sash with platted trde is among the best sad most peplar of aml the new ideas. It has a novel finish. A single end overlaps the girdle (which is stiffened with a small piece of buckram at this point). The end is laid in a shallow plait fast ened with small silk covered buttons and a finish in the shape of two nar row ruffles is sewed under the ribbons to the buckram. Narrow brocaded ribbons and many wide Dresdens appear among the dres aisr models. But above all the three yard sash of wide black'ribbon known as the "wishbone" sash has captivated the fancy of fashion's devotees. Some women simplify the buying of Christmas presents by choosing some such pretty fad and confining them selves to this one article. THE EYE GLASS SHOP DAVID C. WILLIAMS, Ipt. D.

S- 1 -- ---- *r A ! • • JjSome New Year Don'ts / . ion. Don't try to get the better of a man who hasn't any. Don't r.re in church. It's mean to keep others awake. Don't be satisfied to pay as you go. Save enough to get back. Don't get marto geted with the sole idea that ansery loves company. Don't follre in churhow the beaten track unless you are satisfied to repaain beaten. Don't accept advice from a man who never offers you anything else. Don't expect Opportunity to come to you with a letter of introduction. Don't trust to luck. Nine-tenths of the people in the world guess wrong. Don't buy your friends. They never last as long as those you make yourself. Don't envy the rise of others. Many a man who gets to the top is mere froth. Don't greet Misfortune with a smile unless you are prepared for a one-sided flirtation. Don't make good resolutions unless you constantly carry a repair kit with you. Don't place too much confidence in ap pe arances. Many a man with a red nose is white all the way through. Don't forget in times of peace to pre pare for war. That's about the only use some of us seem to have for peace. Don't fail to have an object in view. Many a man leads such an aimless exist ence that he could fire at random without hitting it.-Lippincott's. DIDN'T OBSERVE NEW YEAR'S Puritans Regarded the Celebration as a Heathenish and Un-Christian Rite. The sole record of the observance of the New Year by the Pilgrims in the new world, named New England, was most prosaic, most Wief: "We went to work betimes." Many of the good Puritan ministers thought the celebration or even notice of the day in any way savored of improper and un-Christian reverence for the heath en god, Janus. Yet these English set tlers came from a land where New Year's eve and New Year's day were second in importance and domestic observance only to Christmas. Throughout every English county SNew Year's eve was always celebrat ed; in many it was called by the pretty name of Singing E'en, from the custom which obtained of singing the last of the Christmas carols at that time. This New Day. Out of the tomb of night a day has risen. Be not anxious; this day is all your own. Do not hurry, for in time it is like all other days; neither delay, for now is passing. Early turn your face to the dawn and let its fresh -beams bathe away all stains of night; then, should the noon be dark with storms, your smile will still wear the I rose tints of the morning. Step soft ly among human hearts, and leave so much of kindness along life's pathway that gladness shall spring up, bearing tribute In the cool e entide of the world's glad New Day.-Croft.
