been to Blairstown to playa game with
the Blair Hall team. The lads were
singing and dancing in the baggage
car, when the train stopped so sud
denly that they were piled up in a

There was no need of questioning
the boy. Not twenty-five yards in
front of the engine lay a great rock on
the rails, weighing probably two tons,
which had tumbled down from the
mountain. Owing to the curve, the
engine driver could not have seen the
obstruction in time to stop the train,
which would have gone crashing down
into the river, a hundred feet below.
Every one ran forward to view the
obstruction and help remove it. The
football team thought it would be an
easy thing to tackle, but it required
tne strength of four men bestdes the
team to roll the rock off the rail.
Some one suggested a subscription
for the boy, and a shower of silver and
I bank notes fell into the hat, but the
boy could not be seen. Finally he was
found hiding on the tender of the en

the praises that were heaped upon
him. It was only after considerable
persuasion that he couldbeiuduced to
take the money.

A Norelty For the Waist. ne
A novelty in waists to wear with ini
your Eton coat is made of white vel- on
vet, and simply finished with ruches va
or shirrings of yellow chiffon, and has ch
a rhinestone clasp at the centre of the th
cravat bow, also of yellow. a
No Unsightly Hairpins. br
An inventive genius has come to +8
the women's assistance with a very in- Bi
genious contrivance, and made it co
possible for a woman to curl her nat- co
urally straight locks and -et not be a cl
guy duriug the process.
This is done oy the use of a set of ar
hairpins and small rods and bits of
baby ribbon of the hue desired. The aE
hair is wound in and out on a hairpin W1
and a piece of ribbon, which has its b<
two ends left out. When this is com- n
pleted the ends of ribbon are tied in a pi
pretty little bow, the hairpin slipped IV
cut, and there you are, with your hair la
done up on ribbon. et
FrattY Street Gowns For Winter.
Fa-dsome street suits are made of
smooth-finished cloth in brown,
bright blue or gray. Velvet trime
both wool and silk goods. The new
est jot trimming is in open designs:
li:e embroidery with beads, spangles it
I anct mousseline appliques. Heavier
passementeries are of silk cord and
Ibraid in scroll and geometrical pat
terns. If the belt is for a street I
gown have it of velvet with steel 0
buckles, but the sash for the evening V
dress may have the buckle of Rhine
stones and be worn at the back with-I
out ary bow, only long rounded ends
with a- narrow frill of silk mousseline
all around.-Ladies' Home Journal.
Handkerchief Revers.
A przetty use of old-fashionna fine
embroidered cambric handkerchiefs
with their exquisite corner pieces, and
in size equal to two of those now in
vogue, is to cut off each corner so as
to turn it into a rever. A straight
band of cambric should be sewed on
the bias side so as to keep it firm.
These bits look wonderfully well turn- t
ing over the open bodice we are wear
ing as double revers or only a single
pair for a V shape high openirg. Hand
kerchiefs which have the sides em
broidered in an even, narrow border,
and very many were so designed, give
further opportunity to use those
straight borders for the bottom of the
sleeves, and for turning over the collar I
and, in other words making a collar
and cuffs.--hiladelphia Press.
No more black umbrellas. The I
umbrella must match the costume, for
the winter. If you wear a dark red
cloth suit, you must carry a dark red
silk umbrella to match; and dark
blue, dark green, and even-shaded
umbrellas to match costumes are be- I
ing made for the winter season. Al
ready some of the best tailors in town
are receiving orders for umbrellas to
match costumes. Ordered in this
way, they are naturally very expen
sive. Thrifty women who want to
follow the new fad will purchase silk
to match their tailor suits, take it,
with the frame of an old umbrella, to
a local umbrella or parasol maker,
and, for a comparatively small sum of
;money, kesp in the rapidly moving
jvani of fashion. It should be borne
in mind that the fad is for, a storm I
umbrella, not a parasol, to match the
Thxis Senson's Style in Corsets.
eThere is a change in the style of
this season's corset. From the ribbon
e ,irdle and short French corsets which
-have beecn in vogue for the past few
months we are to change to the high-1
bust and long-waist aKairs-the Eg
h lish style being the order of the day,
i while the size of the waist is to un
1 dergo no change.
e IFor several seasons the demand for
I. a corset which would allow women to
enoy, as well as participate in, the
outdoor sports, by giving them more
i room for breathing purposes just above
L- and about the waist, has been inces
sat, and as a result, though the co:
7 set remains as popular as ever, certain
i changes have been instituted ini its
imae-up which are entirely beneticial
and have made the old-fashioned,
t heavily boned corset a thing of the
r past.
SFirst, French cambric, satin, silk
"and doeskin have entirely saperseded
cautille, which was generally consid
d ered the ideal maa erial for co:-sets,. and~
is as far as wear is concerned. but is
*e now thouret to i-e far too sti~i and
heavy. Another change is the de
* crease in the number of bones em
3poyed. As they are now adea the
0 corsets are boned only i:a the back an
-front, the under--arm line2 being omit
n ted. That the size of th' wzist is not
ilessened by this style r co:set sems
a to make no appnarent difference, an
,. the oninion is that after they have
a once been worn they will not ba r
linquished without a strag;le.
0To the stout woman a corset is an
iiabsolute necessity, and to the siende,
when it serves as a support for the
bust and helps to carry the weight o
-the c!othes, it is in ma~ny cases inuis
a pensable.-American Quteen.
