In promising our readers a flue literary and
artistic treat. Among tho features will bo n

The engraving will bo done in the dell-ate
halt-tone process from photographs made di

largo engraving, "Friend of Kris Krlngle,"
will show about fifty beautiful children m
about as many attitudes. This will ulso Ito in

The women of tho W. C, T, U, are now
haying a tnsto of politics. At tho Chlcagu
meeting tho other day Mrs. J, Ellen Foster
of Iowa offered nn amendment to tho consti
tution dellulng the objects of tho union to Ih
to interest nud unite the Christian women of
tho nation In uon-tctrian, non-partisan tem
perance work for tho reformation of tho In
temperate nnd tho education of public senti
ment on txthalf of total alxtlneuco and tho
prohibition of tho trafllo In alcoholio lhmor;
tho suppression of vice and crime and tho ed
ucation of tho masses In tho duties and re
sponsibilities of good cltitenshtp. Tho amend
ment was defeated and later In tho day a reso
lution by an Iowa woman declaring against a
third party movement was alto voted down.
At tho evening setttlou Mrs. Foster read a
long protest on tvhalf of tho Iowa delegation,
setting forth that they luid met rebuffs and
Insults until forlxxirAiico had ceased to lo a
virtue At tho conclusion of tho reading tho
eutlrolowa delegation left tho hall. Miss
Willard spoko briefly about tho bolt, saying
this outcomo had Ion boon expected and that

Very many of tho best drcaaed ladles
who tuny bo said to almost act tho fash
ion hero have comparatively fow drcssos,
but ouch ono Is perfect after Its kind. I
know ono young lady wIioho ancestors
wcro ntuong tho llrst toaettlu Now York,
nnd who is nn acknowledged Ixdlo, nml
her immo Is nhvnys coupled with tho title
of one of tho most tastefully dressed
girls In this city, nnd she told me her
secret, nml It Is ouo which I feci quite,
justified In giving to tho world. She
thinks a long whllo Iwforo she decides
ujKm buying a dross, nnd when alio llnnl
ly chooses, It Is of plain material, lunolld
colors, nml that n dnrk ono always for
out doors, nnd sho chooses Htandard col

with nmpIuBelf drapoiles. Next season
this can, If necessary, to bo strictly in

Her gowns nn always nmdo up I.,

changes, for tlirv nr four years. Her

which gives her u s.icy enough out of
her allowance to li.ivo njco fresh gloves,
thu neatest of boo,.uuul nn abundance
of seasonable under jarmenU, nnd those
iliilntv little t villi's tli.tt nro oo attractive.
She has n ten gown of crape, nnd figured
sill: that eho somehow manages tochange
materially ovcry season, and which is
thu admiration of her friends. She has
a dinner gown of warm, brown nrmuro
silk, embroidered lavishly in gold thread
mil yellow silk. Shu has n dancing
dress of red tlssuu nnd another mado up
out of tho best of two others of
palo bluo brocade and yellow lace.
Sho has a tweed ulster four sea
sons old, but always new by reason
of good enro, and deft transfer of trim
ming, pretty evening wraps nnd a jaunty
sealskin jacket, and sho has a handsome
black faille dress which sho can wear to
a funeral or n wedding, nnd this, in fact,
Is about the limit of her wardrobe, with
ono or two plain but pretty houso dresses.
But because each gown Is exactly adapted
to lu uses, nnd is kept neat nnd in order,
her name has gone abroad as n fine
dresser, when sho actually does not
spend on her whole wnrdrobe in ono year
what I have seen others pay for n single
dress. Her latest tiiumph is the em.
brotdoring of her brown nrmuro und ro
making it, as is shown in tho model, into
a beautiful dinner dress. Another just
such a triumph Is shown in the dress bo

Here is the gist of all this sermon, No
womnn ought to let others choose for her
what sho is to wear, nnd it is not an ex
travagant wasto of time for any woman
to think well over her clothes, and plan
them out carefully beforehand, so that
one garment will bear a familiar relation
to another and not look as if she had
borrowed garments from all her neigh
bora. I Intended to say much more nud
