A'liytliK Niece of William IV Was Called
to the Throne.
Several newspapers, in explaining to
their readers how Qneeu Victoria oamo
lo succeed William IV, say it was be?
cause she was his niece. That is tho
truth, but only half the truth, for Will?
iam IV had nephews and other nieces,
tieorgo Ill's lirst, second, third and
fourth sons were respectively tho Prince
of Wales, afterward tieorgo IV, who
died childless in I Kill); Frederick, duke
of York, who died in 1827, also with?
out children; William, duko of Clar?
ence, who died William IV, Juno 20,
1837, without lawful issue, and Ed?
ward, duke of Kent and Strathearn
nnd earl of Dublin, who died Jan. 211,
1820, aged ?li, leaving as the. solo, issue
of his marriage with Princess Victoria
of Leiningen a baby daughter, now
Queen Victoria. The queen succeeded
William IV not because sho was simply
his niece, but, because she was tho only
child of the brother next to hin? in the
order of succession.

White Costume* ltoign In France? DroM
of Moutmolluo do I.nlnc.
Tnilor mode costumes, whloh hold thoir
own in fashionable favor year uftor your,
because they uro so neat, fiervlocnblo nnd
becoming, nevertheless change soinowhnt
from season to Reason, nnd nro now no
longer tho rigid nnd sevoro nppurel that
they wore when they first oamo about. Tho
bolero, oponlng ?t will over blouses of
gnuze. crape, luce or moussolino do soli',
form a froquont font uro of this olnss of
{?owns, nnd short, uloso bodious, with a
slight bnsque, trimmed with galloon or
military braid, nro also much liked.
Whlta inoiro forms a highly accoptable
trlmmiug for cloth gowns, capes and
wraps. Although it is not at nil durable,
it has tho force of novelty nnd fashion to
hack it, and is greatly worn. Long travel?
ing wraps of cloth and oloth capos bavo
rovors and collars of cream or white
moire, and medlci collars of cloth nro
lined with tho inoiro, which also forms
tho lining of capes themselves. A light
silk lining is indispensable for oloth capos,
which aro considered to 'look elogauco
without it.
White costumes nro enjoying n grcnt
vogue in France, and the vogue Is u con
stnntly Increasing one. In woolen goods,
lawn and silk, etamincs, grenadine, linen
and piquo then; aro charming gowns, suit?
able for bouse and country or seaside wear.
The illustration shows a summer cos?
tume having a skirt of cream mousseline
de laine, shirred around tho hips by three
rows of gathering. Tho hlousu bodice of
pink surah is close fitting at tho back,
while in front it has a plaited plastron,
with a pointed yoke of guipure. Tho plas?
tron is framed by double rufllos of white
surah. Tho (dose sh oves havo slight bouf?

green satin is closed by u paste buckle.
A hat of white straw is worn, trimmed
with white lace and pink (lowers.
Straw Color For Brunettes?Light Shades
For I'ule People.
Narrow bands of black vclvot on straw
colored gnuze or silk aro very fashionable
and straw gowns or bodices tints trimmed
are charming in effect, both for brunettes
and red iiaired women. It used to be said
that the samo color as that of tho hair was
to bo chosen for daylight wear and the
same color as that of the eyes for ovening.
This is a rulo which insures one against
mistakes ami unbecoming tints, but it is
inoro rigid than is necessary. If It wcro
implicitly followed, black eyed brunettes
woidd he entirely confined to black cloth?
ing, which is becoming to them, but n"t
to bo adopted without change. The chief
thing to be considered in choosing colors
is the complexion, except in tho caso of red
hair, which is so much tho most obvious
note of personal color that it has to bo al?
lowed tin- principal weight in the matter.
Putting, therefore, red haired personsaside
as a special class to bo separately consid?
ered, the tone of the skin is tho best guide
to the selection of tints for tho wardrobe.
Some dark haired people aro charming in
blues and lavenders, some light, haired ones
in reds and yellows. Very polo shades of
nny color roqulra :\ fidr, smooth skin.
Light green, light v; dot and light yellow
havo tho effect of gi\ log a pale skin n rosy
tinge. Whon tho complexion is rough,
strong colors are preferable, especially reds.
. The illustration given today shows a
house costume of pink mousscllno do sole.
Tho material is accordion plaited and falls
from head to tout, in a long, loose mantle,
having a dalmatic collar of white guipure
whloh extends to tho foot in front. He?

Of pink satin having a collarette and

Many a. bulsness man

ances as a "lucky fel?

from the grave. He has
purchased success at the
cost of health. Vor every

ter, he is standing on the verge of his grave.
Just one more big business strain?just one
more step backward in health?and he will
step into his grave. No man has the right
to gain money at the expense of health. He
owes something to wife and children?some?
