Daniel Webster once said: "If
we work upon marble, it will perish ;
if we work upon brass, time will
alTect it: if we rear temples, they
will crumble into dust; if we work
upon immortal minds and imbue
them with good principles, with the
just fear of God, and the love of
their fell iw-men, we engrave upon
those tablets something that will
brighten for all eternity."
Good-bye, little boy, good bye,
I never had thought of this'
That some day I'd vainly siih
For the bahv I used to kiss.
That into his corner a man would grow,
And I should not miss liim nor see him
Till all of a sudden the scales would
And one ho revealed to me straight and
Then I should be startled and sadly cry:
Uood-bye, little boy, good-bye!
Good-dye, little boy, good-bye,
Yon are going Respite my tears,
You cannot, and neither can I,
Successfully cope with the years.
They Hit for the burden that all must
And then, at their pleasure, they place
I love you, too, but my heart Is sore
For the child who has gone to return no
And deep in my bosom I sadly cry:
Good-bye, little boy, good-bye
The nightgown of the immediate
future is gored and trained and most
elaborately trimmed. Especially
does this apply to the nightgown of
the bridal set. The fichu is a feat
ure of the newest nigh dress, and is
a most becoming part of it. Sleeves
are lef t to the individual taste, or
rather to the individual form, for
the very thin woman is not apt
to iook Kinmy on wie nignturpsses
with elbow sleeves or very short
ones. This season the shor; waisted
effect is much sought in night
dresses, and laces and embroideries
are insetted bayadere fashion.
Bayadere tucking is used with good
effect on undergarment, and quite a
wide space is left between the tucks.
How the chemise ever came to be
completely ousted no one seems to
know, but the truth is that it disap
peared so entirely that it comes
back almost in the manner of a
novelty. Formerly this garment
was worn next to the skin under the
corset, but it is now more frequently
worn over the corset, doing duty as
a, corset cover and short Bkirt. The
most highly approved design is rath
er short, falling just low enough to
hide the drawers. Most of the new
est models are made to draw in be
hind at the waist line with a ribbon,
so that they lit the figure as snugly
and smoothly as a fitted corset cover
Drawers are by no means eo wide
as as they were last season. Very
few full umbrella drawerare shown,
this design having heen greatly
modified. They are narrower and
fit very snugly and plainly about the
hips, having no gathers at all in
front and on th sides, and as few as
possible in the back.
Jloth the very short and the long
muslin petticoats are cut after the
newest dress skirt patterns, and
their fit is faultless. Their tops are
sheath shaped, and they fit back
and front around the top without a
gather or plait or even so much as a
pucker. It goes without siying that
they flare decidedly at the bottom,
and on the long petticoats three ia.ee
edged graduated rufllf s are made to
fall over one another and are set on
an attached lace edged flounce.

That little garment, the const
cover, plays an important part n
the success or failure of woman's
wardrobe, for upon it depends the
fit, or rather the corset set, of her
bodices. Short French corset cov
ers that come only to or ju?t a trille
below the waist are made to adhere
closely to the figure by means of a
I drawing string at neck and belt line.
I he new models are vpry dainty
trifles. Some are tucked all over
vertically or horizontally and others
have bayadere or bias inserting of
lace or embroidery, or both, let In.

Now is the season when the tea
gown and the tea jacket arj seen at
their best. There have never been
more fetchingly dainty models than
there are at present.
All the fashionable establishments
are showing petticoats tliat ttre to be
worn as negligee witli he smart lit
tle jackets. Of course,. these are by
no means inexpensive,, and so the
woman with a slender income needs
must pass these very Frenchy crea
tions by, though from them she
gathers nice ideas how to build her
celf a bewitching little rig which
she wears in the privacy of her own
With Parisian women snowy white
negligees are always in evidence,
and though the gauzy things are a
delight to the eye they are hardly
practical enough for the American
woman, or suited to our variable
I., tea gowns a bolero effect is ex
ceedingly popular, and ever woman
knows by this time just how really
(etching a tea gown looks with top
made in this fashion. The; bolero
may be of velvet, handsome Oriental
embroidery or heavy lace applique,
or covered with the jewel-like span
gles that are 60 much the vogue.
White dotted Swiss is much liked
for negligee jackets, and it makes
up fetclungly. Iluilles of plain Swiss
tucked at the edges and bands of the
plain Swiss finely tucked and set in
form a pretty mode of trimming,
while plain Swiss ribbons run with
rows of narrow baby ribbon, look
very well indeed, especially if tlin
ribbon is crossed in lattice fashion
for the bands.
Nothing, however, in the way of a
negligee that is designed for com
fort, can quite equal t'esnowy white
eiderdown flannel jacket. Line this

in fact, any becoming i-.ior in soft,

you have a love of a cozy little
jacket that is delightfully becom
ing. It only takes a bit of stuff to
make these jacket as they must
have no fullness, and the lace is the
only item of much expense, and
nowadays such very pretty silk laces
can he had at remarkably low prices
Unfiles of chiffon or moussliue de
soie run with several rows of narrow
satin ribbon may take the place of
lace, and with very good effect. The
sleeves of the eiderdown jackets are
cut after the coat pattern, but loose,

Double Skirt Must Clliiff.
The hips must be suppressed. Upon
this point fashion is very emphatic.
re tticoats and other undergarments
are fastened to the lower euge of the
corset. If there are hip pads they
are put in most cleverly, and no one
can guess from the downward slope
that all the pretty, sloping curves
are not nature's own.
There is no doubt that double
skirts are going to be much worn,
but there is no sign of bunchiuess
about the hips in these. There is no
sign ot flaring until tbe knee is reach
ed. A new Paris gown of the double
skirt style is described thus: "The
material of this exquisite gown was
pervenche blue tatfeta; you will re
member that this color is half way
between mauve and blue and par
takes of the character of both. The
front of the skirt formed an original
tablier in pointed shawl-fashion,
edged with a deep similar colored
silk fringe from beneath; small
flounces ornamented the skirt in a
circular manner, wnich were hidden
again at the back by another point
ed panel. The corsage was arrang
ed with a yoke of apple-green vel
vet, on which appeared three points
of the pervenche silk, edged with
fringe. The waistband was com
pooed of the same pretty green vel
vet.'' Underskirts or velvet or satin bro
cade are topped by a skirt, cut in
deep points of scallops, of cloth.
A Use for lti I.eaven.
Our grandmothers considered
daintiness in every detail to be the
secret of a gentlewoman's life.
Their delicacy of taste was never
shown more effectively nor more
daintily than in their selection of
scents. Every lady of the period was
an adept in preparing her own fa
vorite perfume, and from one dear,
old fashioned grandmother I have
learned bow she gathered the petals
of the blush rose which grows so
plentifully in country gardens,
placed them in little, loosely mesh
ed bags, sprinkled over them a few
drops of some aromatic tincture to
coax out their peculiar sweetness,
and then scattered the dainty bags
among tier linen.
She did not confine herself to tbe
blush rose, but gathered all varieties
early in the morning, then shook
tnem lightly in an airy room over
newspapers spread upon the floor
Several times during the day she
tossed them lightly about to be sure
that no moisture remained. The next
morning sne made nat Dags or com
mon muslin, which she filled with
rose leaves. The bags were then
placed for a day on the paper, turn
ed occasionally, and on the morning
of the third day sprinkled liberally
with violet toilet water and con
signed to their places in the clust"
More expensive rose bags may be
made if desired. Threads may be
drawn and two or three rows of baby
ribbons darned in the space, a friil
of la"e m iy be put about the edges,
and tiny bows of ribbon fastened at
the four corners Pittuburg Dis
patch. l.ft the ClilMrrn Laugh.
Chavasse, aii eminent surgeon,
pays: ' Encourage your child to be
merry and to laugh aloud. A good,
hearty laugh expands the chest and
makes the blood bound merrily
along. Commend me to a good laugh,
not to little, sniggering laugh, but to
one that will Miund' right through
the house. It will not only do your
child good, but will be a benefit to
all who hear and be an important
means of driving the blues awiy
from a dwelling. Merriment is very
catching and spreads in a remark
able manner, few being able t re
sist the contagion. A hearty laugh
is delightful harmonv. Indeed ic is
the best of all music "
The adaptability of women is one
quality greatly in their favor. Set
down in the midst of uncongenial
surroundings, a woman's first im
pulse is to improve them. She quiet
ly gives a deft touch here, straight
ens out a little there, and, though
poverty may be wtill apparent, yet
order tias succeeded chaos, and she
has imparted to everything within
her reach some expression of home
ly comfort. She carries the samo in

month's apprenticeship, i she suc

instances where women, thrown un
expectedly upon their resources,

did not know they possessed and
would not have known but for Mie
need of doing something. Home

The mill of perdition runs mad and
swift. With dazing rapidity millions
succumb to its fatal suction. Half the
present, generation of men and women,
rich and poor, cultured aud unlettered,
are being drawn with awful rapidity
between its mericless stones. In three
decades all the men aud women now
living will be gone. Kvery beer sot;
whisky soak, and gin bloat; every
gambling knave and saloon fiend, aud
every willing and unwilling victim of
the most withering curse under the
murk v dome of sin, will have been har
vested and ground to powder, their
bodies gathered into nature's crema
tories, their souls doomed to a shudder
ingwhere? and the old earth will be
freed forever of their blighting pres
Hut think you that the hoppers of the
mill of hell will gape empty, or that its
stones will merely grind each other, or
that its murderous machinery, starved
of human flesh and blood, will cease it-
remorseless revolutions? will not a
new army of victims, blind, brainless,
devoid of will, feed to this mill of eter
nal destruction their bodies aud souls?
Verily 1 Hut from whence shall come
Let the innocent babe prattle and
laugh to day. Let the happy faced boy
and girl plav tn tne Drignt sunshine
nehind the curta'n of to-morrow lurk
the saloon's and the gambling hell's
seductive agents. They will nave the
lirst-born of every home a tithe of the
sweetest, purest and best life of the
land. They win pour out tms lire, a
libation to the false god to whom society
and politics bend the servile knee. Our
cherished institutions, liquor dealing
and gambling, must be maintained;
more gold is needed; more revenue pay
ing drink is made; over production is a
curse; consumption must oe encour
aged at any cost; the souls of our boys
and eirls are cheap!
Wring not your nanas, mot liar: laugh
with your darling while you inky; kiss
the golden curls; press the babi 'scheek
to your own; let its litt'e life beat
against your own bosom; for to-morrow
the nightmare of a nation's lust will
rest upon it, even in the very twilight
of babyhood; the incubus of greed will
despoil its unfolding reason; the hydra
of terrible habit win wrap it round and
round ; and the tires of kindling passion
wilt consume u, oouy aua soui.
Only fools have no fear for their chi!
The braving ass of the field is t
veritable Solomon for wisdom beside
that parent who sees no danger in the
stress of present temptation. The
organization of the saloon power is per
fect. It reaches every city, town, and
crossroads, it nas under tribute every
man or woman in tne laua who sells
liquor, and by means of the telegraph it
can concentrate in a rew nours, enorm
ous sums of money to thwart righteous
legislation, or to promote Its own ne
farious schemes. 1 laces or drink are
made seductively attractive to the
young, beyond the imagination of pure
minded men. The sirens of old are put
to shame by those who go forth in our
great cities to lure our boys and girls to
destruction. Nor is H tor the children
of the slums alone that this demon
which America is not wining to spare
lies in wait. The rum tratlic makes its
highest bid for the children of the ricb
the cultured and the good.
We must break our lances for the ris
ing generation. The devil would glad
ly give us every sot in the land it we
would give him the children. If young
America is won by the saloon there will
be another generation of untold misery
and crime; but if tbe youth can be
saved the saloon problem will be solved
