LJut real hetigalino silk is good value for

valuable for mourning, as it is not lus

Among the now weaves in domestic
silks which uro now, and justly, consid

silk, I see the tricotino, which has a sur

Mrs. Mary A. I.lvermore tells this story:
The (launliter of a certain gentleman, who
was quite well oil", was to bu married. She
had purchased her trousseau, which was a
gorgeous one, from the apartments of the
worlll's mast fashionable modiste. Tlie
bill reached way up into the hundreds, and
was but a short step from a thousand.
The ceremony and reception in their turn
followed with all the brilliancy character
istic of a nuptial of the society world.
The fond parent looked anxiously on as ho
thought of the Immense number of bills
that would soon pour in for his sympathy,
and silently cainu to the conclusion that it
should be the last.
After the event had passed and the
happy Mr. and Mrs. wero speeding away
in a Pullman enjoying all of thu pleasan
tries of a honeymoon, ho called his other
daughter to him and surprised her some
what by inquiring If shu hod any serious
thoughts on matrimony,
"Why, papa," shu exclaimed, "you know
I haven't left school yetl"
"I know that," replied tho father as he
thought of his diminished bank account,
"but will you ever have?"
"Why, of course," was tho blushing
maiden's reply: "you know all girls ex
pect." "Then," he answered, "when thu dual
point comes just let me know in time and
I will glvo you $ 1,000 and you and whoever
It Is may run off. Anything to get away
from those trousseaus and receptions."

A TRUE STORY OF
' was towards the close of a bright summer's day that the prodigal son arilvcd
at the paternal mansion. He hod come by the quickest route, "The Burling
ton." The sun was declining In the west-tbe only thing Hint does decline
west of Chicago except base ball and Us slanting rays threw a golden tint
upon the gray hairs ol the aged father who Mil on the front porch rending the
Inst "Burlington Route" advertisement.
The gate opened, and the old man peering over hi spectacles dUcrlcd n
a ragged tramp coming up the walk. He was about to set the dog on him, in
accordance with thu usual custom of that hospitable region, when the tramp
con.e up, removed a dilapidated hat rim which encircled his brow, and cried,
"father, don't you know me?" "Know you?" returned the old man, after
scrutinizing him a moment over his spectacles, "I would know you If I saw
your hide hanging In a tan yard, It's my own lost h-hoyl" Then the fond
parent fell upon his son's neck and wept wept because It was so dirty, It hadn't
been washed since Christmas, but he took him In all the same, gave him a
hath and a new suit of clothes and then walked him down lo the B. & M.
depot to sec to what perfection the "Burlington" had brought their passenger
train service. 'Twos marvelous, and the prodigal urn straightway registered a
boIoiu vow that bis children and his children's children for all time to come
should recognbe the "Burlington" as the one great rallwoy whose equipment
was always UP TO DATE.
We don't know how Mils legend of tho prodigal son came down through
the ages so accurate and f ice from side Issues, but It's here, Intact and unin
cumbered, ready to adorn a back cover or point a moral. The moral of this
story Is: If you would prosper In this world, travel only by the "Burlington
