Pannier Frock For Fall
pannier frock has been trying to ingratiate itself into fashionable favor
past few seasons, and now dressmakers realize that it has come to
•stay—for awhile at least.
The draped costume illustrated is not an extreme model of this pannier
mode, but is graceful and becoming when worn by a tall, slender woman.
material used is soft, heavy black satin, which falls into attractive lines. The
Weeves are rather full after the new fall models sent over from Paris. A
vhite lace gtiinipe and sleeve rulKes complete the charming costume.
When sewing on hooks and eyes
choose a needle the length o£ the
distance at which you wish to set
your hooks. Make eyes with a double
thread by taking two stitches at the
same place the width of the hook.
Work the stiteli in "buttonhole" and
then run the needle between the out
side and the lining of the material
upon which you are working just the
length of the needle. This is for the
next eye. On on in this order, sewing
the hooks a needle's length apart, and
you will get them at regular distances
without stopping to measure for each

To make beautiful buttonholes, even
on the sheerest of materials, mark
them first and stitch the outlines once
around. This not only adds to the
durability of the buttonhole, but
makes the working of it far easier.
An ingenious woman has found that
dental floss is the best medium for
stringing pearl, coral or crystal beads.
To fasten the end neatly to the clasp
run the tloss through the end two
beads, then through the ring on the
clasp and back through the end two
heads, knotting between the second
and third heads and then cutting.
This hides the knots. Do not. use a
needle in stringing. If the end of the

A Test of Strength.
Perhaps you do not know how
strong you are ill some ways. Here is
a trick which will show you that you
have more strength in your arms than
you may have supposed: Hold your
hands straight in front of you, with
the palms toward you and the middle
lingers of each hand just touching
each other. Then ask some one to pull
your hands apart. You will be sur
prised to find that a much bigger.
stronger person than you will probably

begin to dance around the square. As
they dance they try to draw some
member of the circle into the square.
Any one stepping inside the cliai':
boundaries is out of the game, which
continues until but one player is left.

"What is it. Delight Darling?"
I asked, using her family name
an adjective, a method which
pleased ine greatly, and longing to
comfort her downcast sapphire eyes
"As you know, Dick Oourlenay. my
great-aunt Delight was a wonderful
woman. As a little girl she made
samplers, l.ater she spun and wove
and was never known to get angry or
speak ill of any one, or to be vain, or
covetous, or worldly, or anything she
shouldn't have been."
"1 don't wonder she never married,"
"You are quite impertinent, Dick,"
said Delight reproachfully. "She was
a perfect woman and beautiful."
"And your second aunt Delight is a
beautiful woman, and you are her
fresh cheeked replica. She is also a
foolish woman to have renounced the
pleasures ol' the world null to disparage
the holy state of matrimouy. My poor

away dad's secret, albeit an open one,
but Delight was nodding her pretty
"I should like your nice father to be
my uncle, but auntie must know best,
and 1 must try to be like her.'
"Delight Darling," I said fervently,
"your blue eyes were made for behold
iug love's visions, your little pink ears
for healing love's messages and your
lips for kisses. Your feet"—
"1 believe 1 could learn as-easily!"
"Of course you could," I answered,
smiling at her flushed cheeks. "And if
you will let me teach you 1 will take
you to the charity masquerade."
"I am going to reason with your
aunt," 1 declared.
"Site sits in the garden making trou
sers for the Widow .Tones' little boy."
"She ought to be making trousers for
her own little boy," I muttered.
To my surprise, I found the second
Miss Delight quite susceptible to my
arguments. She closed the interview
"But don't lot the child know 1 said
so. She will enjoy the pleasure more
if she deems it stolen."
As 1 was dressing for the masquer
ade a tap came at my door, followed
by a rather portly "Quaker grandpa."
My eyes fell upon a peculiar seal ring
which I recognized.
"If you don't want to be known,
dad," 1 suggested, "better let me wear
He complied so quickly that I divin
ed that he didn't want to be known,

brought his paw down on the mouse,
but so gently that it was not injured

inches and stopping him again.
Suddenly the mouse sprang straight
at the big animal's head.

By and by I took my lady into tho

her scarlet gloved hand. After a long
time she shyly returned tho pressure.
"Have you a cold?" she asked con

"Perhaps. I hadn't thought about It.
Little girl, are you very, very happy?" KSjs
"Yes." she admitted. Wil
"Of course you are, and you are do

the froth. The real substance is a
home and an honest man's love. It Is
as natural for you to love as for these
orchids to bloom. Delight Darling, am
I the man you love?"
Her head sank to my shoulder. From
her dark hair came perfume of violets.
If you must know It, Richard Cour

men, and, renouncing all I have held to
be most worthy, I will do your will."
It didn't sound like Delight's spon

about to lift the scarlet mask to frorm
to her that her lips were made fok just
what I had said when two ghosor and
the Queen of Hearts entered and obvi

The fall of the masks was the coup

"or I'll explode!"
Into the conservatory, where my suc

small aud decidedly fascinating aunt
of my little Delight.
"Now, Dick Courtenay, explain your
self!" the little lady commanded, her
eyes dangerously dark, her cheeks
matching her dress.
"Oh, the Joke is too rich to explain!"
I wheezed, wiping my eyes. "Sit down
