NEW SHORT STORIES The Dael Didn't Take Place. Ex-United States Senator William F. Banders, who died recently at Helena, Mont., was a noted character, says the Pittsburg Dispatch. During one of the hottest campaigns of territorial days Colonel Sanders was, as usual, the leading orator for his party. The lead er on the other side was a man who was known to be as free of speech and as careless of results as the colo nel. It was an oratorical combat worth going miles to hear, and personalities were indulged in freely. Though po litical opponents, the two had been associated in many ways, and espe cially in the Indian surprise at Camas creek. It is stated that on that occasion at the first Indian whoop the party scat tered, some taking to the shelter of the trees to give battle in the only way recognized as sensible In combats with the red men. Some, however, were not in position to find such shelter. HE JUMPED INTO THE CBEEE. Among these was the colonel*s antago nist on the stump. The only thing for him was to jump into the creek and hide under tne shelter of some over hanging bushes. It was not fear—it was necessity—but Colonel Sanders found good use for the incident during this campaign. His opponent, stung by some remark the colonel had made, announced that the insult could be wiped out only on the field of honor. This announcement was made known to Sanders, and there was a great crowd out at the next meeting he ad dressed to hear how he would take the challenge. "My friends," he said, "I have been challenged to a duel by the gentleman on the other side. As I understand such matters, the challenged party has the choice of weapons. I choose an Indian war whoop on the banks of the Camas creek." There was no result. The matter was laughed out of court, as it were. A Story of Beecher. Henry Ward Beecher had a very strong dislike to all financial and busi ness matters'. Frederic L. Colver, pub lisher of the American Illustrated Mag azine, the newly adopted title of Les lie's Monthly/' relates a good story of Beecher's peculiarity in these matters. It was in the fall of 1886. Colver was publishing the Brooklyn Magazine, and the method of newspapers in syndicat ing special articles was in high favor. Colver, who had known Beecher for many years, was urging him strongly to write a series of weekly articles on current events and had offered the preacher $100 for each article of a newspaper column in length. Beecher heard all the young man's reasons patiently and then with char acteristic humor said: "Now, my son, you cannot make such articles go. I think the newspapers consider me a squeezed lemon already. I shouldn't want to see you fall on my account, and, besides, you know I hate to be tied down to regular work." Mrs. Beecher, who was sitting in a corner of the famous Beecher study in the Brooklyn home, said: "Henry, why don't you let the young man try his plan? He has studied it all out" To this Beecher replied: "Well, moth er, you can settle the matter, but he must do the business with you. I don't care to be bound to write some thing every week, and I don't like to take the boy's money." And so it was settled in favor of the persistent Colver, and thereafter Mrs. Beecher was the go-between and ob tained the copy each week, and the checks were paid to her, whether for "pin money" or not Colver never in quired. A Cmrncarle Story. Andrew Carnegie tells this as one of his experiences at Ski bo: Soon after he had bought Sklbo there was a circus exhibiting in the neighborhood of the castle, and one of the main attractions was an orangoutang. One night the orangoutang got out, fell over the cliff and was killed. In the morning two of the keepers looking over the grounds ran across the body of the dead orang outang. One of them scratched his head and said, "He ain't no 'llander, that's sure." The other said: "He ain't no lowlander. They ain't got that much hair on 'em." After awhile one of them proposed to the other as fol lows: •Til go up to the kirk and see the parson, and you go up to Mr. Carnegie and see If any of his American gentry are missing."-Xew York Times. WOMAN AND FASHION For the Small Bor- There Is a premium always on the Invention of new things or the diver sion of familiar ones to novel uses— anything that will bring about results as quickly as possible—and when this Is accomplished, as In the one piece garment here shown, one feels like doffing one's hat to the genius who in box's one piece tunic. vented It In the little boy's tunic we have a practical example In which sim plicity Is obtained without sacrificing practicability. The little garment closes on the shoulder with buttons and buttonholes, hence is slipped on over the head "Just like papa's shirt," which fact pleases the little fellow im mensely. The garment is worn with a lining, to which the sleeves are sewed. This lining affords an underwalst, to which the trousers may be attached. These same trousers are to be made with hip pockets as well as the side pockets. This little tunic requires so little material and is so easily made the little man should have half a dozen of them for each pair of trousers. The standing collar is sewed to the waist lining. Fanhlon Hints. It isn't how much money a woman spends on her clothes, but how much taste she shows, that classes her among well dressed folk. Beautiful scarfs and rich feather boas share honors for wear with light summer dresses. Leghorn hats are enjoying great fa vor at this moment, and some models are exquisitely trimmed with pink roses. A great many white embroidered hats, embroidered tulles and broderie anglaise are worn, usually made over a pale color. A new color, peacock green, Is fast superseding the extraordinary reds and curious mustard yellows that were so popular In Paris a few weeks ago. A Graceful Model. Gray has been steadily growing In favor the summer through until It now can safely be called one of the most fashionable of all colors, and as It Is always delightfully cool in effect the statement should be a welcome one. In this instance It Is combined with cream white lace over chiffon and with touches of gray velvet found in the bands, rosettes of ribbon trimming both the waist and the skirt, and is ex ceedingly effective, as the cream with PKABL OBAX AND WHITE. the gray always gives a delightful re sult. The model is a graceful one, adapted to all the fashionable soft ma terials, but in this case Is made of crepe de chine. The front of the waist and the panel of the skirt, with their outlining box plaits, give the long lines that are so satisfactory, while the shlrrings In both the flounce and the blouse provide the soft folds of fash lon, Th© waist Is shirred at the shoulders and has a full front below the chemi sette and is closed Invisibly at the left side beneath the box plait The skirt is made with front panel and circular portions, the box plaits concealing the connecting seams. The circular por tions consist of skirt and flounce and can either be finished with a hem at the bottom or trimmed with little frills applied In scalloped outline, as may be liked.
