All sorts and kinds of embroideries are seen on the fashionable gowns, the latest of which is a mixture of colored straw and applique lace, and also flower designs done in cream-white baby ribbon all over the little bolero jackets. MRS. CLEVELAND'S FALL HAT. Mrs. Cleveland's new fall hat, which has just reached Gray Gables, is made of pale green straw, with brown dots scattered over it. One side of the hat is trimmed with stiff taffeta bows in brown and green. On the other side of the crown is arranged a mass of snowballs nestling in vari-colored leaves.-New York Advertiser. A PHOSPHORESCENT TEA. What may be called a "phosphor escent 5 o'clock tea" occurred lately in a fashionable circle of Paris, but after dusk, when the luminous effect could 'be well seen. No candles or lamps were used, all the light 'coming from the phosphorescent ceiling, carpets and furniture, pictures, teacups and flowers. The ladies also wore phos phorescent gowns, while their fa.e~s, arms and shoulders gleamed with phosphorescent cosmetics, such as the luminous toilet powder or starch. CARING FOR LONG GLOVES. An idea which is not entirely new but is worth resuscitating is that of revamping one's gloves. It will come in very well this year, when long gloves are to be so much the fashion. The long white and pale-colored suede gloves and the black glace kids, which fashion has also decreed for this sea son, may be made to do service several times over. When the hand is worn or soiled with perspiration so it will not bear cleaning, just cut it off at the wrist, or a little above, buy a newpair of six-button length gloves to match, and sew them to the long arm pieces. When these are wrinkled down at the wrist the seam will not show at all and considerable of the expense of these necessary articles is saved. DIREOTORY WAISTS. A number of the smartest Paris modistes assdrt that Grecian and Di rectory waists will be revived this winter and that fashion will pass the stiffness and creakiness of silks and stiffer linings to the pliable and yield ing soft satins. The announcement that the waists worn at the time of the Directory may return will be gratefully received by all women who are slender. Paris modistes say the change is due to the influence of the talented women of the stage who have held sway in the dra matic world fon the past three years, Bernhardt, Duse, .fading, Terry, Nethersole, Rehan, Janausehek and Modjeska. Nearly ail of these great stars have been strong advocates of the Grecian waist and have worn it when ever it was permissible. Its great claim for support lies in the fact that it requires classic;! figures and classi cal practices. The strophium takes the place of the stay. A dainty gown built on the Directory lines is of ivory crosses just below the line of the bust over an exquisite corselet of lace em broidered with pearls. -San Francisco Chronicle. SHOES OF FAIR WOMEN, American shoemakers far outstrip their English brothers, who are clumsy in their manner of making the shoes to cover dainty foot. Both English and French shoemakers sell what is known as "straights." These have straight soles and may be worn on either foot. This is economical, but the resnlt is not artisti.c, The French do nc make serviocea ble walking boots, although they are leaders in line footwear of silk, satin and kid. The high heel still predom inates in French shops, because the wo men do not care much for exercise, The high, curving heel that is so dan gerous, but makes the foot look smaller, is worn in France on the street. This is the day of sensible footwear. For the strmet, broad, square heels are in vogue in America. In the time of our grandmothers untold tortures were endured by foolish women, who persistently wore shoes too short and too narrow. At present the very long shoe, with its sharp Piccadilly or razor toe makes it necessary for a woman to buy a shoe extra long. A slender foot is now the style, and the short, pudgy foot is out of date. To prevent the long patent leather too from breaking the toe of the shoe should be stuffed with cotton. Rundown heels are slovenly and should not be tolerated. Metal heel plates are worn by woman who wear their heels otl but;they make such a noise if one steps on a stone or tiled floor that they do not meet with much favor. POINT LACE OF TWO COUNTRIES. Among the many varieties of lace handed down from past generations, the point lace of Italy and Spain, the "Punto in aria and Punto tagliato a fogliami," worked entirely by the needle, are perhaps the most interest ing of them all, not only for their beauty but from the important part they played min male as well as female costumes, and the charm they add to the contemporary portraits of distin guished characters. Punto in aria, writes Mrs. Conyers Morrell in The Queen-that is, stitches worked upon a single foundation thread-is first mentioned in Giov anni Antonio Taglienti's "Opera Nouva," published in Vienna in 1530, but the first pattern books which give examples of it are the works en titled "Lapompe" of 1557, and "La Gloria et Honori dei Ponti Tagliati et Ponti in Aere" of the year 1558. It was undoubtedly an evolution from the earlier style of open work wrought upon linen, from which a portion of the thread was cut and withdrawn, and at !irst was no doubt limited to filling up the spaces left in the linen. It is easy to imagine how some thoughtful and ingenious worker, cramped by the rectangular threads, sought for some method of giving greater play to design, and evolved the method whereby the beautiful group of laces known as Punto in Aria, Punto ad Avorio (ivory point), Punto dei Nobile and Punto Tagliati a Fog liami were produced. These laces are all worked upon the same principle-that is, the design is traced upon a piece of paper lined with linen or kid, light colored, and a thread is laid down around the out lines and wherever required to empha size the pattern. The thread must be guided by the left hand and fixed in a position by minute stitches worked across it, great care being taken not to pierce the left-hand thread, as when the work is completed these small stitches are thus easily detached from the foundation upon which it has been worked. The thread outlines being carefully completed, the next proceed ing is to cover them with a row of fine button-hole stitches, and then to fill in the several portions of the pat tern either with several rows of but ton-hole or any other suitable filling stitches. Finally, the bars connecting the solid portion of the laces are add ed. These are formed of threads over overcast with button-hole stitching, and ornamented, as a rule. with little loops, or, as they are generally termed, picots. FASHION NOTES. Tie gown that is made without a suggestion of bolero or Eton to it will be in a class entirely by itself. Shaded taffetas will be greatly used for the broad corselets that Paris says will supersede the ribbon belts of summer. Though crepon, as a fabric is no lorger in fashionable favor, yet indica tions of its crinkled effect are seen in many of the new materials. Smooth-faced cloths are conspicuous among the autumn novelties, and brown, green and navy blue seem to be equally fashionable colors. Though it is predicted that the quiet colors will be the leaders, the plaids in the windows are sufficiently gay to make one doubt the statement. When an alpine or English walking hat is to be worn'this year with a tailor gown it will invariably have a group of Spanish cock feathers at the left side. Canvas cloth is also regarded as an easy fall novelty. It is closely woven, and can stand much hard wear. The clothes in the basket weave are equally popular. No panels have appeared as yet, but some of the sash arrangements give a panel effect, and the dressmakers hint that there may be velvet panels on winter gowns. Gray will be much worn. It comes in three shades-a dark-gray, called platina, a lighter shade, spoken of as nickel, and a still fainter, more silvery color, known as silver. Thereis a new tailor-made girl. She has lost much of her severity of style and has actually consented to give up her linen collars and cuffs and her much beloved waistcoat. Skirts are made so long now thai they must be wellheld up, and the dust ruffle adds much to the effectiveness of a street costume. When it is soiled it may easily be exhobanged for a fresh one. All the best tailor-made gowns this year havewhat is called the plain skirt. It bangs straight and plain in front, without gores, the fullness all drawn toward the back. Last season's skirt, even though tailor-made, had many a ripple. The Paris dressmaker always lines a gown entirely with silk, unless she is ordered to do otherwise, but several of therm admit that the best quality of cotton basque linings not only wear better, but really fits better than does a silk one. The basque is another novel feature of the new tailor-made gown. It fits rather tightly over the hips, rippling a trifle at the back, or itopens directly in the back, folding over in revers, which are frequently fastened with tiny buttons. And there are plaids in plenty-the dashing Scotch plaids and plaids in more subdued colors. A novelty plaid isin deep-grayish-blue and white, with a narrow stripe, edged with boucles, making the material a plaid cheviot, with a boiale stripe. CURIOUS FACTS. A Chicago blind man has eloped with and married a Chicago blind wo man. On most voyages of the first-class ocean steamer about 3000 pieces of glassware and crockery are broken. New buildings now going up in the City of Mexico are'not equipped with the iron gratings over the windows so long in use there. Date vinegar has been made by the Arabs for ages. It has recently been put on the English market, and the English say it is far superior to any other vinegar. Hitched to a wagon by the roadside near Rockford, Ill., a team of horses, both dead, were found by W. W. Ben nett after a storm. It was supposed that lightning killed them. Awakened by the cold nose of his spaniel pressing against his face, a Rockland (Me.) man got up from bed and followed the dog to the kitchen, which was flooded with water from a leaking tank. The largest bell in France has been hung in the belfry of the Church of the Sacred Heart, in Paris. It weighs twenty-eight tons, can be heard at a distance of twenty-five miles, and its vibration lasts six minutes. Library students in Paris wear "muzzles" when perusing old booke in the National Library, "not because there is fear that they will bite the old volumes, but to prevent the inhalation of the book microbes in their lungs. Reports from Turkey ctate that the results of the evacuations at MagneLia, on the Meander River, including the ruins of the temples of Zeus and Ar. tem;s, have been destroyed by the Turks, who have used them for build ing materials. There is an immense difference be tween the various Indian tribes-in language, dress, manners and tempera ment. For instance, the Apaches are degraded, ignorant, savage and war like, while the Flandreau Sioux are peaceful, progressive and frugal. The will of T. S. Woodward, of San Jose, Cal., leaves $2,041,000 to his nephew, William F. Woodward, of Boston, aged twenty-four. He was in delicate health, out of work, without money and in debt for board and lodg ing when the good news reached him. William Kirby cut a bee tree near the Altamnaha River in Georgia. It contained twelve feet of sealed honey and three feet of wax. During the season Mr. Kirby cut 150 bee trees along the river and cleared a snug sum of money from the sale of the honey. Scotland claims the credit of having the smallest burial ground in the world. It is situated in the town of Galashiels, between Bridge atreet and High street. It measures only 22. by 14. feet, and is surrounded by a rickety wall about seven feet high. It has b3en closed as a burial ground for many years. "Ca Ira" is the regimental march of the Prince of Wales's West Yorkshire Regiment, the old Fourteenth foot. The tradition is that the regiment met the French at the beginning of the revolution, when the Colonel ordered the drummers to strike up "Ca Ira," saying, "we will beat them to their own tune," which they did. The Aryan Cowbhays. The study of domestic cattle should be of special interest to us, because they have undoubtedly occupied a more important place in'our own ances tral history than any other species of animal. The Aryan tribesmen from whom nearlyp all Western civili zation folks are descended were cow boys almost: to a man. Like the Kaf~irs and Damaras of South Africa to-day, all their thoughts were about their herds. This is shown in a curious way by the study of the early devel opment of our language. The San skrit word for a king meant originally a "chief herdsman." The word for an assembly or the meeting place of a congress was the same as that for a cowyard. A soldier was "one who fights about cows." It would seem as if they regarded nothing else as worth ruling over or talking about or fight ing for. Professor Max Mueller traces the word "daughter" to the ancient term of a milkmaid. In the good old times they plainly did not take any account of young ladies who were not accomplished performers in the cowpon. The cow or ox was for long ages the chief -standard of value. Ev.ery thing, from a new coat to a new wife, was priced as so many cows. Many of our other words which refer to money bear traces of this, such as "fee" and "pecuniary," which are derived di reatly from the old English anl L~stin words for cattle. Doubtless there were ourrenby disputes when other Smaterials began to be used for coinage and diffloulties arose about the ad. justment of relative values. "Cow mstallism" might well have been an important plank in some of the Aryan political platforms.-North American Review. A Hundred Million Suns. A peep into the heavens through a modern telescope is a peep into the very depths of mystery. With such an instrument one may gaze upon 100,000,000 stars, each of them a burn ing, blazing sun I From what little we know of creation, we cannot but be lieve that each of those suns is giving light and heat to a train of planets, just in the same manner that our sun gives light and life to his little flock of~worlds. Beyond those 100,000,000 suns there may be hundreds of mil lions more. Thus they tay continue "system after system and worlds with. out end." Verily, says a St. Louis Republio writer, we may say with Rlchter's dream man who was taken on: a voyage by an angel through thel depths of space: "End there is 'nnei· neither was there a beginning,'K:,-j"I ,NEW PINCUSHIONS. Floral pincushions are the latest rage in decorative work. The edelweiss is a special favorite, and is made entirely of white velvet; the bulrush of brown velvet and gold plush holds its own, and tie pupin, fashioned out of small circular pieces of cream cioth. just tinged with color, is greatly in demand. The tip tilted hat, so long the friend of stylish women, has given place in Paris to rakish little affairs set at any other angle that is picturesque. LATE PEAS FOR ROME USE. There is not generally a very good market for late peas, because after the first new peas have satisfied the appe tites of lovers of this vegetable the price rapidly declines and it will not pay to grow and market it. But a fresh succession of peas until fall is very desirable, and it is easily in the power of every farmer to secure it by later plantings. The farmer ought al ways to have fresher vegetables.and a longer season for them than the aver age city resident can expect. It is one of the advantages of country life that he should not only not forego but make the most of. It is hard work providing three palatable meals through the sum mer for men at work on the farm. A' plentiful supply of green pr'is will fur nish food that is not only palatable but ,nutritious. PICKING DItCKS. Duck feathers always bring a fair price, especially white ones, and should be saved when dressing the ducks, if they are sold dressed; if not sold dressed do not pick just before selling. The amount received for tho feathers ought to pay for the dressing. The breeding ducks may be picked several times a year, usually four to six. Do not pick until the feathers are "ripe," which can be told by pulling a few from different parts of the bodies of several birds. If they come out eas ily, without any bloody .luid in the quill, they are all right and should bo "picked" or many will be lost. In picking pull only a few feathers at a time by taking between the thumb and forefinger and giving a quick down ward jerk. Do not pull the bunch of long, coarse feathers under each wing. Before you begin picking, tie the duck's feet together with a bit of list Ing or other eoft cloth, and if the duck is inclined to objecrt to the picking by thrusts with the bill, .slip an old stock ing or something of the sort over its head. Use io unnecessary harshness with any of the birds and be especially careful with laying ducks. Sitting ducks and those that are soon to be set should not be picked. In hot weather much of the diown may be taken from the drakes. Do not take any in cold weather.-Farm, Field and Fireside. Has Slept in Paris Streets for Ten Years. An interesting character was un earthed by the Parisian police the other day. .Ii$ name is Raphael Benoit, and he enjoys an independent income of 6,000 francs a year, but finds sleeping out in the streets of Paris the most agreeable way of living there. He stated that he had not slept under a roof for ten years, and that he kept his spare clothing in a handbag in a cloak room at one of 1he railway sta tions. IHe spent thie days either walk ing about the cily or reading at the national library. while his evenings were usually spent at thile theatre. As for sleeping, he found a bench in a park or under a bridge quite good enough. Thle police did not know what to make of hIlim, and, as there was noth ing against his character, he was re leased. The most notable poetutlarity about the sleeve portion of the costume is the adoption of flaring cuffs that fall over the hands, some of themn being pointed over the back of the hand and filled in with full-gathered lace ruch ings. others in bell shalpe, with seal loped edges bound or embtroidered. These culffs are cut with the sleCeve, and, while they are rather stylish, they look somewhat odd at first. Other cuffs are set on over the sleeves. and have long points at the under side of the arm. FARM AND GARDEN NOTES. A good cow is not always fat; she converts her food into milk rather than into flesh. Dairy cows are said by some to have so worn out their teeth at ten years of age that they are unprofitable. See that the cows have some sort of shade in the pasture, or a chance to come to the barn or shed, these hot days. A Tenacious Clutch Is that of dypelpsa.

L U1. How Old are You? You need not answer the question, madam, for in your case age is not counted by years. It will always be true that "a woman is as old as she looks." Nothing sets the seal of age so deeply upon woman's beauty as gray hair. It is natural, therefore, that every woman is anxious to preserve her hair in all its original abundance and beauty; or, that being denied the crowning gift of beautiful hair, she lbngs to possess it. Nothing, is easier than to attain O to this gift or to preserve it, if already possessed. Ayer's Hair Vigor restores gray or faded hair to its original color. It does this by simply aiding nature, by supplying the nutrition necessary to health and growth. There is no better preparation for the hair SAYER'S HAIR VIGOR.
