The latter produces a rolling motion. Always wear a pair of boots which do not pinch and that have low heels when going for a walk. Nothing is more fatiguing than a long walk in high heels or tight boots. I. NOVELTIES IN BUTTONS, The diversity and extravagance of the buttons worn this seoason illustrate 1e one development of fashion not alto gether a revival of old-time styles. Buttons were used for ornament in the fourteenth century, but nothing like s the present variety was ever known `. before. Coral buttons are perhaps L1 the latest novelty, and are charming a. on a black velvet gown. Then there are cameo buttons and all sorts of imi tation gems set with rhinestones, be. sides the real article in which few -wo OS men can indulge. LAUNCJIID A i'ASHIOY. Sometimes a fashion is launched "d curiously. An old book containing colored engravings of flowers, each a with a woman's face for a center, was .e the inspiration for the hatof the lead nt ing actress in "The Wandering Jew," the enormous size of the flowers on it id being its characteristic feature. Bern ie. hardt saw the hat and took the idea for her headdress in "Gisiondda." The id next day all the artilicial flower makers in Paris were busy supplying the demand for flowers three times or Tal size.--The Silver Knight. WIIY IItnE MAID QUIT. 0, is an amusing instance of I British class formality. The lady's Sma-id of Mrs. Benev-elout was stricken t down with typhus fever, and Mrs. B. enevolent, having a great liking for I the maid, declared she would nurse E the girlherself. This sahe did, through 1 a long illness, and after her complete I restoration to health, the maid was 0 asked to resume her duties. Her an swer was an expression of gratitude for the kindness and care she had received, 1 i concluding with the sorrowful "regret a n that I shall not be able to return to c k your service, as I can not engage my- v self to one who is rot a lady, and of I course no lady would have nursed and I t waited upon a ser'ant t d due in my case." i 'u -, t s A HEROIC WOMAt:;, 8 i. Mies IMona Burrows, a young teacher in the Homo for Feeble Minded Chil- d dren, Vincland, N. J., rescued a boy y of fourteen from the flames when the 9 I home was destroyed by fire a few days ago. She had helped to guide the children out of the blazing home, and, l discovering that the boy had been for- Ii gotten in his room, she dashed into ti the building, ascended to his room, and, by main lor;e and against his I will, carried him into the open air. In performing this heroic lent, Miss Bur rows was seriously injured, and is now under the care of a physician. The Newark Advertiser says: "Heroism of men is recognized and rewarded by the National, State and municilml governments. The Federal Govern ment gives medals to live savers, and bl has a host of pensioners on its rolls. The State has voted medals and pen- te slous for heroic nets or injurie.s re- ,( ceived in the perfornmance of duty. Municipalities have their methods of rewarding heroism in men. The State of New Jersey has the opportnmity now to honor heroism in women." ,IE WANTED WORK.

Power looms, she says, are unable to produce these fabrics of the ,f high artistic merit of which the hand e loom is possible. For rich silks Mrs. Bayley asserts . that the hand weaving is a cheaper e and even quicker mode of weaving e than power loom work, and that since u country firms over England cannot s obtain the requisite number of hands g to produce the work that is ordered in e consequence of the revived demand for costly silks, she says that hand loom weaving can be carried on with profit in ladies' own homes. From four to five dollars a week can easily be earned by any woman in this work, Mrs. Bay. lcy says, and that is in England. The same work can be productive of better returns in this country. 1 The suggestion is not made merely for a working girls. Mrs. Bayley believes that there is a paying field in the pro. duetion of high art silken fabrics that is worthy the attention ,of cultivated women of small means, who would find the work not only lucrative, but attractive. In commenting upon MIrs. Bayley's proposition, the Dry Goods Chronicle, of this city, says: "It is not so many years ago since women, strong, healthy English, Ger. man and French women, worked hand looms in Paterson. They operated both shaft harness and jacquard Loom,, weaving intricate patterns and superb satins, swinging the shuttle by hand and working the harness and jac quard by foot power. Almost every mill then of any size boasted of a hand loom department. Hand looms were also to be seen in many of the homes of these foreign weavers. "At that time the hand loord weaver looked upon the power loom attend. ant as little better than a day laborer, or part and parcel of the machine he was attending. It is true that the old hand loom weaver possessed much more knowledge of the intricacies of the jacquard and loom detail than is known by the power loom weaver of to-day, many of whom do not under stand the formation of the Darbv chain. The hand loom weaver always declared that he 'had served his time' at weaving and 'wound quills' for a year or two before hi was permitted to 'pick a warp' or 'throw a shuttle.' "The advent af the power loom sig nailed the degeneration of the hand loom weaver. Many of the old hands have developed, into loom fixers, but the majority are simply 'minding' the ':ey don't call it weav k Herald. hamb coats are frequently ca in with bands of mock jewels. Miany of the sleeves for evening gowns are very short-a mere puff or butterfly bow. A gorgeous hatpin is often the only touch of color on the fashionable cha. pean of the season. All black gowns need not be neces sarnily somber if treated right from a trimming standpoint. A charming dress for a girl is made of black velvet. The shirt is plain. The waist has bolero fronts over a silk : vest. The collar is high and slightly rolled out from the throat. The sleeves lit the arms and have large pnffa at the shoulders. A belt of embroidery crosses the front from the edges of the c cutaway jacket. A stylish dress is of black satin t The skirt is cut plmnly and has a rar- I row quilting of silk just under the c edge. The wais hafs a perfectly plain t front of solid c.'nbroidery; the seldes I and back, which are closo fitting, are s of the satin. There are fitted sleeves, c with cape ruffle lined with a silk like that at the edge of the skirt. Short jackets, with cutaway fronts, are popular, and, because of the open space from collar to warst line, fash ion is demanding an enormous quan tity of lace in jabots, cascades and loopings. When these confections are made over a moderately thjick lining, they furnish considerable warmth, and are just a little better than noth ing. Some beautiful mulk, just from Paris, are of large size and lined with ermine. Sometimes a frill of real lace, in cream or white, finishes off the edges of the muff, for lace and fur form an especially fashionable com bination this season. Lovely ermine vests have bows and cescades of real lace at the throat. The effect is strik ing and extremely elegant. All styles of buckles are much used this season. They are shown in gold, a silver, bronze, jet, steel, pearl, horn, wood, brass and carnelian, and the gold and silver ones are jewel-studded, - and are things of beauty. They are shown in delicate filigree, Arabic and Moorish designs. Russian enamel and old Dutch chasing, and are really quaint and beautiful soeasories to si most any toilet,. WANTED TO SEE A B!CYCLE. Owned a Horse Ilanch and His 1lusl ness Was Ruincd. "There goes one or th' goldarned things, 'eorge'" The speakeri was a white-bearded man fully 70 years of age, and, from his appearance, evidently a farmer. The person addressed was a younger man, his high-heeled boots and red necktie also denoting the agriculturist. It was at the Morrison street bridge --and just before 5 o'clock in the morn ing. The gray night mist had not yet lifted from the river, but these two men had risen from their beds--impelled by a curiosity to see a bicycle. "Yes, sir," answered the elder of the two, in response to a qluestlon, "we're out yere on this bridge ter see a bicycle --a critter neither of us has ever seen afore. You see, we live in the moun tauis back of Clatskanie, an' bicycles don't come our way. "We come up river on th' G. W.

But this is th' first time I've bin ter town n1r nigh on thirteen years, an' fer th' life of me I kail't recollect seein' one of th' machines then. "So I jest asked th' purser where th' best place to catch sight of a bicycle early in th' mornia' was in Portland, an' he told me th' bridge here ahead of th' steamer. Well, I was that peskered to see one that I routed George out so soon as it was daylight, an' we've been standih' on this: bridge ever since wait in' for a bicycle man ter come along." Then, turning to his companion, the old man said: "Well, if I did rout yer out kinder early, ye're the most interested, George." "Yer bet I am!" George replied; and then the younger man went on to tell what the bicycle has done for the horse raiser and farmer. lie has a band of some CO horses on the range, and ninety acres of oats. Five years ago these horses would aver-age $25 per head un broken, and lie received (0 cents per bushel for the oats not used in getting his horses in condition for market. To day the horses can hardly be given away, and his oats bring 31 cents. And this he ascribes to the bicycle. And so the two men sat, perched on the bridge railing. watching, as the morning grew on, the increased num ber of bicyclists crossing the bridge, and pouring out their anathemas on that "goldarued thing," the silent stee6, -Portland Telegram. Badly Flustered. A well-known and much beloved cler gyman has halt a dozen good stories which are particularly appropriate for childish hearers, and whenever he is asked to address a Sunday school or a public institution for the benefit of children, as lie pretty often is, aonme one of these stories is certain to be called into requisition, and is invari ably received with enthusiasm. "'T'here is only one difficulty about the matter," the clergyman says, "and that comes from my not always being able to remhemnber. when called upon to speak to an audience of chlildren, which story I told them the last time; but a year ago, when I was sent for to address a certain mission school, I thought I was ;nfe. As I hurried to ward the church that afternoon, I said to myself. 'I will tell those boys my nutmeg story. I'm sure they've never heard it, and it's just the right thing at this time.' "S,, having settled that point in my mind, I sat comfortably until the su periutendent announced me as the next speaker. "'You will all be glad to know that Doctor - has come here again, and has promised to tell you a story, as he lid last year,' the superintendent said. 'I don't believe there is a boy in this room who has forgotten that capital nutmeg story which Doctor - told us the last time he stood on this platform, and I am sure he has an equally inter asti.g one for us to-day.' '·'Then he sat down," concluded the alergyman, "and I was obliged to gath Ir up my scattered wits and make an )ther selection from my half-dozen tand-bys as rapidly as possible; and a this day I think that superintendent elieves that his introduction was so omp!lmentary as to emrbarranss me for 'ully a minute, as it was certainly that ength of time before I had come to my ;enses and launched forth on my sec aud beat story, in a cold perspiration."

It was gentle but effective, and since then I have gradually noted an entire change in the working of my system, and I think that Ripans 'I'abules are the best remedy for liver and stomach troubles this side of anywhere.
