Nuw Vork Novelties lor the Fall and Win. tor Seasons. An elegant dinner dress just import ed is of deep orange ottoman embossed with large maroon velvet leaves. The train is plain at the sides and upon tho edges the leaves are cut out and deep "mordore" beads in glistening irides cent strands fringe the outlines. Tho bit of front that shows is in plain or ange ottoman intricately plaited with the bronzy strands, throwing little sparkling gleams all over it. The bod ice of brocade opens at the neck with narrow revcrs, and tilled in with a full plastron and jabot of lace A rich seal brown visiting dress is of velvet and ottoman brocatled velvet. The back of the skirt of brocade ia plaited and hangs straight the front, also of ottoman, is very narrow and without trimm:ng. Tho side panels are formed of three box plaits of vel« vet, with tabs of ottoman falling from the bodice, fringed with deep chenille, satin balls and gold pendants. Placed upon these plaits are applique flow ers and leaves of solid bion/e and gold bullion. The brocade bodice has a vest of seal satin ornamented with rich aiguilettes of seal and gold. Among the new dress models, one of the most effective styles is the Gilda basque and Clotilde skirt. It is suita ble for all wool goods trimm with braid or velvet or any flat' garniture. In a model seen, the material was brown ladies1 cloth. The front breadth was narrow and covered with different widths in braid in various brown shades, put on crosswise. This was laid in one large side plait each side of the center on the foundation skirt The plain cloth was so arranged to form a very large triple box plait at each side, giving the e.l'ect of panels. The back drapery was looped high, hanging in most graceful folds. The (iilda basque is open in front, closing with one button j,ust below the bust, then cut awav, showing a pointed vest trimmed with braid matching tho skirt The Eton basque and Florilla skirt form a lovely combination for silk and velvet, wh le the Castalia basque is very effective with the Orinthia skirt. This model was represented in dark blue wool goods with a small embroi dered figure in red nd a lighter shade of blue at regular intervals. Darkbluo silk was used for the plastron, whilo the coia'et was of blue velvet This and the skirt were trimmed with Kur slieedt wool lace matching the ground color of the material The volvetcol lar is fastened at the right side under a bow of velvet. A .stylish and practical costume for autumn is in dark green serge trimmed with wide giant braid in black. The skirt is formed of large kilt plaits, and upon each one is placed the entire- length a row of this brakl, leaving a part of the material visible forward of it. Over th is worn the Cambria polonaise, with a narrow vest of green velvet. The braid is used only on the front and sleeves of the polonaise, outlining tho vest, and tho etlect is enhanced by a line gold soutache bra:d set on iu a curled pattern on one edge. Polonaises have taken a new lease of popular favor, and there are many new aud graceful design*. The Kotha is a new design. With double-breasted trout and long enough to -over the dress skirt. The Amarclla is alsp an at tractive model, not at all difficult to make. Silk gloves wilt be worn late in tho autumn, and the exhibit in colors matching clothes is most attractive, while the pri- es are decidedly low. The most des'rablo are the long black ones, and so perfect are they tin shod that they are almost as handsome as black kid. and certa nly for shopping and ordinary wear are muoh more com fortable.

Now, what I want to say: 1 am well acquainted with this young school-marm. Fact is it was my farm she spent the sum mer on. Nice girl, Ella is, as ever run wild in the sun. \Ve was glad, wife an' me, to have her come, an' she did 'bout as she pleased on the farm. I'd often read in the papers 'bout these young women that taught school in the winter an' farmed in the summer, but I never iiad any experiences of 'em before. Well, sir, she farmed. First day, nothln'd do bat she must drive the hoss rake. Well, every man an woman that couies from town wants to drive the hoss rake, an' they call that gittin' in the hay. My little Janey eleven years old next May, usually drives the rake for us. but she ain't ben feeliu' overly peart this summer an' I kinder kept her out of the sun. So Miss Ella gits her self boosted up on the hoss rake—my boy Joe he boosted her—an' then she screamed an' fell off. Then she got on agin, hit the hoss a crack an' away she went on the dead jump out o' the field into the road, hoss a goiu', dust a flyin* -an' Miss Ella screechin'. Some of tho men headed her off an' stopped thQ boss. Then she tried it agin. This time she struck right straight through the standin' irass where it was tallest an' thickest and taneledest hoss a balkin' and tuggin' away by turns, grass holdiii' on or comin' up by the roots, rake teeth a snappin'. We got her out of that, aud lost a whole day on the rake, gettin' it mended. Then she tried drivin' a load into the big barn. Had to send to the house for a lad der, an' then all the men had to go clear out of the field while she climbed up on the load. Drivin' in she got the wagon caught in a hedge gap as wide as the Missouri liiver, run over two stand of bees, upset the load and buried herself under three hun dred pounds of hay. It was the safest place for her under the excltin' circum stances so we jest left her ther' ontil the bees got cammed down an' we got some ve»tin' laded. *8 "WEET a% that, ruy to mo!" 91Tl.tt.?a£?d an? si£ kiswsd him on the lips, «upW9con°- "uSES1?:u^f?do^S-to1,6 pla,n' -Boston Courier.

Editor of the Eagle: Noticin' in your columns quite recent a paragraph to the followin': Miss Ella Witchazel, a charming young school teacher of Villisca, la., finding the close conlinement and arduous duties of the school-room injuring her health, tried the out-door cure. Instead of spending her winter's salary and summer vacation in a crowded hotel at the seashore, she went on a farm, cut twenty-five acres of prairie hay, harvested forty acres of wheat, gained twenty pounds In weight, a coat of tan for her hands and face, and a rugged health that can not be equaled any where oil a farm. There's the girl you are looking for. young man." -V4\ work done. Next load she went in on, and then turned all of the men out of the barn while she climbed up Into the mow, an' then she wandered around ontil she stepped into a chute and shot down about twenty eight feet into the cow barn an' lit right on the b..ck of a Jersev calf that was worth S250 of any man's money an hour before. Miss Ella wa'n't killed, but she was that jammed up that she lay in bed two days, an' but for that providence we'd hev ben workin' at that hay yet. An' anybody that wants a broken back calf can have one at his own figeers. Well, come wheat harvest, she must drive the self-binder. That was a leetle too risky, but she had her own way. But she couldn't be trusted up above the knives, so somebody had to set up there an' hold her on. My boy Joe, he held her on—I t#kl Joe she was a makin' a fool of him—an' if she didn't make him drive around every poppy an' every blossoinin' weed she see iu that field to save it Never mind the wheat, but save the blamed weeds. There was only one stump on tiiat three hundred ami twenty acres of prairie land, just one stump, an' I hope I may go to seed before Thanks givin' if that girl didn't run into it an' break the reaper.

My boy, Joe, he did wear his hat out, but' he hid It under the hedge when he got out of sight of the house. I told Joe he w.a the biggest fool I ever see. Well, Miss Ella got along fairly weil after wheat harvest Gathered some grace ful sprays, she called 'em, of poison ivy one day, and couldn't see out of one eye for nigh a week. One day she took a ttli pail to go out after berries, and when she went through the cow pasture the cows thought there was salt in the pail and chased her till she was nigh ready to drop. And she went to the barn once an' tried to harness a young Tuckahoe colt that had never had a halter on him, an' how she got out of the stable alive's more'n I can tell. But what I wanted to say is that that's about the way the young women who farm so grace ful in the newspapers usually farm on the farm. But we liked her. An'we hated to see her go. An'she will make a splendid wife for some man, if she can't run a farm, but I don't know about your young men comin' out to look after her, for when she said good-bvg to !B2 to go back to town, she throw'ed her arms around my neck an* gin me a kiss that I says to my boy Joe, standin' by the wagon to take her to town, he was always somewhere around: "Joe," I says, "You'd give your share in the farm fpr that," an' Joe he didn't seein to care for anything of the kind, an' Miss Ella, she up an' give me another squeeze an' a kiss, an' I saw her looking over my shoulder at my boy Joe and^-haw! haw! haw!—Burdette, in Brooklyn Eagle.

LTbo Railway Review.] One_ who is accustomed to railway traveling can scarcely realize how much he is dependent for safety upon the en gineer. Added to the responsibility of their station, engineers are also in con stant danger o£ accidents caused by the tricks ot jealous rivals. This rivalry, it is said, sometimes prompts to the doing of utterly mean tricks. A Niekle Plate engineer after his very first trip was laid oil because he had "cut out" all the bearings of his engine. He was re instated, however, after he proved that some rival had filled his oiting can with emery. Another new engineer was sus pended for burning out the flues of his boiler. Through grief at tho loss of his position ho died, and then a conscience stricken rival confessed that he had put oil in the tank so that it foamed and showed water at the top gange, when in reality there was scarcely a quart iu the boiler! These intense jealousies, together with the terrible anxiety incident to their work, have a terribly straining effect on the nerve, and statistics tell us that, though Locomotive Engineers may look strong and vigorous, thev are not all a healthy class. Ex-Chief Engineer A. 8. Hampton, Indianapolis, Ind., (Div. 143) was one of those apparently hearty men, but he says: "The anxiety, strain and jolting c«me near finishing me." His suf ferings localized in catarrh of the bladder, but he used Warner's safe euro faithfully for twenty weeks and now exclaims: "I am a well man." T. S. Iugrahani, of Cleveland, O., Assistant Chief Engineer, and other prominent members are also emphatic in its praise. The Locomotive Engineers' Brotherhood has 17,000 members and 240 divisions. Its headquarters are in Cleveland, O., where Chief Engineer Arthur for twenty years has exercised aim' st dictatorial sway. It was organized in August, 18ti3, by the em ployes of the Michigan Central! It has given nearly two million dollars to the widows and orphans of deceased members.

"Laugh and Grow Fat," is a precept easily preached, but not so easy to practice. If a person has no appe tite, but a distressing nausea, sick-head ache, dyspepsia, boils, or any other ill re sulting from inaction of the bowels, it is impossible to get up such a laugh as will produce aldermanic corpulence. In order to laugh satisfactorily you must be well, and to be well you must have your bowels in good order. You can do this and laugh heartily with Dr. Pierce's "Pleasant Purg ative Pellets," the little regulators of the liver and bowels and best promoters of jollity.

He refers to the entire Western and Southern country to bear him testimony to the truth of the assertion that in no case whatever will it fail to eure if the direetionsare striotly followed and carried out. In a great many oases a single dose has teen suffloient for a cure, and whole families have bees oured by a single bottle, with a per fect restoration of the general health. It is, however, prudent, and in every case more cer tain to eure, it its use is oontinued in smaller doses for a week or two after the disease has been checked, more especially in difficult and long-standing oases. Usually this medicine will not require any aid to keep the bowels in good order.
