WOMAN AND FASHION. (Hcful Uandkr chief Trimming on Oowqi and. Blouses -Dainty T Jacket- A Now Occupation. A Parisian jrwn of recent importa tion in mad with an extremely pretty bodice trimmed in handkerchief style. which h ijuite new and very popular just at present. On the other tide this dresH is made of golden brown doable cashmere, and the ftleeves are tnoked from the wrist to the shoulder. The vest ii also flnelytueked, aud tbe collar and soft revern are made of turquoise blue i)k, with small brown designs upon it. All of these are hemmed at the edges like a pocket handkerchief, and tiiey are caught together at the throat with handsome cabochons which N fcW AND 8TY1.ISII. match the ornamental belt at the waist. The ruffle at the neck U of soft brown silk, aud the en tout cas is also of silk, with brown and blue ntript-s. The hut which completes this stylish costume is of golden brown felt, to match the dress, and it is trimmed with long brown aud blue ostrich feathers, and an antique buckle to match the or naments on the bodice. The gloves are of a pale mastic shade of suede, and they are long enough to be drawn up over the lightly fitting wrists of the bodice. The graceful handkerchief trimmings are used on blouses. They ure also used with very good ettVet to make sleeveless vests for wearing with open coats, and in this tasH the borders are cut off and gathered into little frills to go across the top of the vest. Rich squares of vel veteen in Paisley colorings make splen did winter vests, but these, of course, are too heavy to make into frills, and the borders ure generally used for the collar and waist belt and to form revers in front. Dainty Tea Jacket. Exquisite both iu color and design is the Louise Quinze tea jacket, which is carried out iu a brocade with wide stripes, having iu the one stripe floral design! iu pompadour colorings on a pure white ground, and in the other tiny flecks of silver on a pale blue back ground striped with gold. The coat is cot short to the waist in front and turn ed back with smartly cut revers of bro- LOl'lS QL'INZK TEA JACKET. cade to show a vest of turquoise blue satin, dowu the center of which a wide band of gold galou is placed. The front of the coat is softened with draperies of ficelle lace, while the back is cut with the long .Louis Quinze basques, which are so generally becom ing, tbe brocade being arranged in those carefully planned folds which give such length to the figure, while the stripes are so contrived that their design is matched to perfection; This coat is lined with turquoise blue glace silk shot with silver. How Small Dog's Are Carried. The New York swell girl carries ber pet dog wrapped up in a contrivance that resembles a shawl strap. For tbe winter season the carrying strap and blanket are combined. Iu color the blanket is generally red, and the small dog presents a comical sight banging limply from the gay colored bundle as it depends from the lady's hand. The Herald, in calling attention to this fashiou, tells that prices of the carrying harness and blanket vary all the way from 5 to $40, according to the decora tion. A New Occupation. ' A young womun connected with the New York Woman's Kxchange is report ed as having taken up a line of work in Which she bi.s few eon titor. fcMie i photographer itfi I t.ik s interiors of house, home pietuie of the person's dwelling then in and anything else of the kind that may be required which needs a camera on the Kpot. Doing nothing is the hardest work for an industrious man. THE SPORTING WORLD. I Ives, tbe champion billiardist, doe not believe iu exerting the body whilt playiug at billiards. "Let your arm and wrist do the work," says he. "Keep your body still. You will often see players making, say, a round the table shot requiring four or five cushions to carom, who fairly fling themselves on the table on giving the ball the necessary momentum. This is all very wrong. It is a complete waste of energy. Not only that, but it robs a player of that steadiness and accuracy needed to successfully score tho point. Muscles are at work in this uncalled for labor that clash with the accuracy and delicacy needed to strike the precise an gle. Tho proper way is to stand with your body immovable, using practical ly only your forearm. With Blight ef fort you can put enough force to the ball to make it go the required distance. Some people acquire this habit to such degree that their playiug is more of a system of twisting and contortions than billiard playing. Although it requires a good wrist and arm to be a successful billiard player, it doesn't necessarily follow that you need the muscles of a tiandow or the strenght of a longshore man. Skill and delicacy are the strong points of billiards." New York World. A Costly Gamecock. A man in England paid $1,000 for a chicken a short time ago, although tbe fact is not a basis for speculation as to English poultry market prices. In point of fact, the price was considered so out rageous even for a gamecock that the story of the sale when it first began to circulate found few believers. But it was a genuine sale. The money was paid and the chicken taken. It was at the recent Birmingham poul try show that this remarkable transac tion took place. The gamecock in ques tion, a fine black red, is said to be one of the most perfect of its kind in exist ence. It has u wonderful reach, is al most perfecTln shape and size, while its fine tail is one olits best points. It has a fine ancestral record of prizes and tii umplis and is u heavy winner itelf. Exchange. Big- Packs of Hounds. The American Field gives a list of the largest park of hounds in Great Britain aud Ireland. The largest pack of all contains 90 couples- IbO dogs and is maintained by the Blackmore Vale. This pack is run four days a week, but of course not all t lie dogs ure used each day. John Watson, master of the Meath, an Irish pack, has (i4 couples, running five days a week, making it one of the hardest working packs in the kingdom. Tbe Badminton, owned by tho Duke of Beaufort, has iu it 75 couples, which are hunted on five days of the week. An other pack tiiat hunts live days a week is the Belvoir, und it has (54 couples. The Duke of Buccleuch and the Earl of Eg lintou keep the largest packs in Scot land, the duke maintaining 67 couples and the earl o0. A Veteran Pacer. Johnson, 'J.OG,1, ex-champion pacer and the world's fastest performer to high wheel sulky, is living on the fat of the land atC. F. Dunbar's Clinton street farm, in the easterly suburbs of Buffalo, Johnson will be 20 years old next spring, aud aside from a slight lameness seems as frisky as a colt. Only last July John Splan, who drove him to his record at Chicago in 1884, was heard to remark, "I wish I had Johnson at 7 years of age today. He would give all the big guns of pacedom a race to a bike. Had I known at Chicago in 1884 that I was never to drive him again, his record to high wheel sulky w ould havo been much fast er. Johnson was tbe pacing wonder of his day." Philadelphia Ledger. Comfort For Cyclers. A Denver man recently invented and placed on the market an ingenious de vice to keep the hands of cyclers warm while riding in cold weather. It consists of a conical shaped shield made of cor duroy or other suitable material and lined with fleece, making a warm and comfortable shield. The small end of the cone fits snugly over the handle bars of the bicycle, and the larger end ac commodates the hand of the rider, permitting the grasping of the handles within the cone. The larger end of the cone incloses the rider's sleeves and forms a protection from the wind. Ex change. The Indispensable Wheel. What a void there would be if today every bicycle in the United tirates should be destroyed! The wheels of government, of business, of ttade and commerce and of political activity would be so clogged that operation would be most difficult if not entirely stopped. It is wholly with out, the range of human conception or calculation to determine with any de gree of correctness what a large place cycling tills in our everyday life and ac tivity today. Never Ik fore has any sin gle human contrivance wo rapidly be come indispensable to the general public as the bicycle. Wheel. Sporting- Notes.

Now, Tib and Tab," says Mrn. Borate, Mind you behave today And don't get lntq nilnchlef or Play pranks while I'm sway, "I'm only going dowu the street To number twenty-three To see WIhh Mouner, aud perhaps I shan't be buck for tea." But scarcely had their mother left When Tib and Tab begin To turn tho house quite upside down And make a fearful din. They first lrenn up us Mr. Scratch, But quickly tire of that. So other naughty antics soon Engage tacu puy cat. They drag into tbe drawing room An old board and a box. What a fine seeaawl" they eiulaliu. "JJow splendidly it rock I" Alas, a pair of hidden nails Catch in their borrowed clothe. And how they are to free themselves Nor Tib nor Tabby knows. Heanwhile Mum Mouaer and her gueal Paca time in pluuaant chat About such thing an intereat The miuu of every cat Why muzzled dug aren't always seen, Why mice art caught in traps, Why cat' meut men cull once a day, bometiuiea not that perbapa. At lant: "I really must go now. My kittles wait for me. They will be wondering, I'm sure, Whut hua become of ino. "Goodby, my dear," aays Mrs. Scratch, 'Or, rather, won't you come And aee how Tib und Tab behave When I'm awuy from home? "Such kit uk these you seldom And, So quit t und ao good. They always do what they are told And act a puaslea should." "If that' the caae," Mian Mouaer aays, "I'll come with you, my dear." What happened next perhaps you'll gueas. 'Twas rather aad, I fear. Only a Piece of String. To a hunter or fisherman a pieoe of stout string, such as is used to tie up heavy bundles, is often of great value. If the fi-hing rod breaks, tbe string mends it again. Should the gunstock break, the string is invaluable. If a pack basket strap fails, a string takes its place. A tear in a tent is sewed up with string. Game is hung out of reach of animals with string. A lost man makes snares out of string and catches birds and rabbits enough to keep him from going hungry. Likewise a stout string will serve as a fishing line in the absence of regular tackle. A boat can be anchored with a rock and cord. A raft is easily made with a string and three or six logs, according to tbe size, and many a skin boat is sewed with raw hide strings. With a piece of string in his pocket, no man netd starve or lack for sport, though lost and 40 miles from anybody. He can break olT a branch, make a bow, uso a slender sapling for au arrow and shoot game us tbe Indians did. Fire may be started iu an unraveled string by striking Kparks into it from two hard rocks. A very important use of a string is stopping the flow of blood from a wound. A ftrip of bark, with a round stone to press into the artery and u string to tie tight over the bark, has saved many lives aud will save more. The strip of bark prevents tho string from cutting the flesh. In case of a broken leg, a berk sheaf and a fctring keep the tones iu place. Bestless Olants. The elephant is so bulky that we can hardly believe that he is really a most restless creature, and the natives have a saying that "au elephant's shoulder is never still." An English writer men tions a curious instance of their restless habits as noted by a sea captain in whose steamer 40 elephants had been shipped. The vessel was anchored in a perfectly smooth sea off the coast of Zanzibar; but, to the great surprise of the passengers, the steamer began to roll. At first they suppdsed tbe motion to be caused by the ground swell, but when tho motion kept increasing there was general alarm, and the captain made an inspection of the ship. Then it was revealed that the elephants had in some way found that by swaying to and fro all together a rocking motion was produced, which seemed to please them immensely. So the great heads and bodies rolled and swung in unison, un til the steamer, which had no other cargo and rolled light, was in imminent danger of rolling clean over. Tbe driv ers were hurried down into the hold. and after a great deal of shouting and thumping they made the elephants "break step," so to speak, and thus stopped their dangerous amusement. A Visit to France. Richard Obudiah Vance Thought he'd like to vi.iit France, Packed his bag, and off he set. Hoping he much fun would get. Richard Obadiah Vance, When he act hia foot in France, Found not any in the land What he meant could understand. Some one stole his bag and ran. Richard tried to chase the roan.
