been occasion on which inember of the
utroiiger Hex have made iimj of the post
script to convey the most Important pari
of the nieshiiKe. He says:

An one example of the feminine post

who, having gone out to India, wrote home
to her friends, after it long silence, con
cluding her letter thus:

Facts A limit New Year's.
New England stood out long against
Christmas and New Year'a alike, and her
writers curious in such lore hnve told us
how cautiously her most daring spirits first
ventured on tlio innovation.
The Chinese New Year opens with soma
unpleasant features. Every tradesman has
to pay all he owe. or surrender his proper
ty, nud Hometimes his liberty. After thnt
they have three days of riotous fun, feast
ing nnd KiiuibliiiK.
Tho fact thnt New Year's falls upon the
name day or very near It among all Aryan
peoples Is a atrong proof of their common
origin. Tho most northern nations of
ancient Kuropccclcbratcd tho day In com
mon with the most southern. The turn of
the sun from hi most southern point In
the heavens a pilars to have been the cause
of this general adoption of the same holi
day season, and from the earliest times
Saxon and Roman, Teuton and Kelt,
Greek nud barbarian alike have recog
nized it as nn occasion for rejoicing.

New Year's l'reaenta.
The giving of presents on New Year'a
dny Is now a custom not widely observed,
exchange of Kift generally taking place ut
Christmas. Uut during the reign of Queen
Elizabeth the 1st of January always culled
forextravagautoutlay, particularly among
the courtiers. It was on New Year's tlnv
that "Royal Hess" first received and wore
New Year's liny In France.
In Franco New Year's day Is marked by
lavish purchases of confectionery by the
gentlemen, who almost deluge their femalo
acquaintances with sweetmeat. The Paris
dealers alone nro said to do a business of
200,000 on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

Most fashion writers revol in tho con
templation of magnificent nnd costly
gowns, ignoring tho mnss of everyday
dresses that are worn and tho fngt that
tho very persons who wear tho superb
costumes they describe don't wear them
always. Thero aro thousands of women
gowned in plain nud comparatively in
exensivo woolens to ono who wears the
purple and Hue linen, so I feel that it
would bo offending tho tasto of the ma
jority of my gentle readers if I tried to
mislead them into thinking that in the
fashionable world it is always "silk

Another great reform has been
wrought in this ago of common sense in
dress, and that is that young girls have
never lieeu so well dressed as now. By
that I mean so simply and suitably for
their age. In tills connection are three
young girls. Tho one nlono wears a
plain princess cut gown of diagonal
choviot, with sleeves guimpo and foot
baud of faille to match. This band at
the bottom gives a faint suspicion that
tho dress has by this means been length
ened. If it has not, it could be if the
young wearer grows tull. It is very
neat, plain and yet quite dressy enough.
Any woolen goods would bo pretty made
so. Old silk, surah of any kind can be
utilized, and a few nail heads here and
thero take oif the old look. This is for u
girl from thirteen to sixteen.
Tho other two aro for girls of from
sixteen to eighteen. Tho smaller one
has a plain skirt of flowered India sill;
or challio or any other rather light wool
en material, made with a narrow flounce
all around tho skirt. A ruffle of the
same, herring boned in some other shade
than tho goods, makes a dainty finish
around the neck and double putted
DAIXTX OOWNS KOIt OtllLS.
Tlio other dress is of pale blue cash
mere, with double baud, Swiss bodico
nnd sleoves of dark green veliitinn. Tlio
guimpe and puds aro of cashmere braid
ed with silver braid studded with small
black jet beads. Tho cashmere costs
about sixty cents a yard and requires
about 4J yards, and 1 yards of vein
tiua, which is one yard wide. If velvet
is used It would need 2J yards, as it is
only twenty-four inches wide.
After all, it all depends upon the tasto
of tlio lady whether she is well or ill
dressed on a small income, Tho power
of making her own clothes, excepting
cloaks, and a complete understanding of
herbelf nro necessary, also thrift and
economy in taking care of her clothes
and judgment in buying; but the btxt
general guide is, get tlio best you can.
