It requires a belt of soino kind to hide
tho plnco whero skirt and waist join
Tho leather belts are very stylish, and
tbo suspenders nro worn as often, but
tho velvet belt looks moro dressy and
more refined, and it nlso has tho advau
tago that it can bo made at homo.
Tho way to do it is to got some
buckram and cut it tho sizo and
shape requited and stitch two or three
thicknesses together by tho machine
just legularly quilting them, Then
trim tho edges carefully to have
them nuito oven and cover the
front with velvet, bringing it over to
tho wrong side and catstitching it tlown

tho sanio way, fastened on, and it is
done Tho velvet belts cost nlnut three
dollars made, but a handy young lad)
could make ono for much less. It to

Tho Eton jacket, worn over a white
piquo vetst, is quito popular and is Ik
coming to nearly all figures. It is point
ed very slightly in the back, and the
seams aro cut just liko those in tho back
of men's coats. Tho front is cut away
to a point and has a regular man's coat
collar. Tho neck is finished by a high
linen collar and four-in-hand tie, black
or matching tho color of the gown
which is usually of bluo bergo, with or
without trimming. That ono in tho II
lustration has several graduated rows
of Hercules black braid. Tho vest can

Next to the blouse waists in this inul

blazer, which this season really merits
tho name of top coat, it is so long. The
blazer is made of light drab or tun cloth
with no trimming to speak of, and the
eeams laid flat and stitched twice like
those of tho covort coats, or it is made
of tweed or sergo to match tho costume

He, Itowover, is not buried in tho lot.
The first to be bulled thcio was the
father, .Jesse Grant, who died in tho
seventies while Ulysses was president.
Ho lived and died in Covington, across
the river, wheio ho was made postmas
ter, for which tho cry of ucitotisiii
was raised ngainst his son. The mother
died in Elizabeth, N. .1., in May, 18811,
and her body wns brought hero for
burial by tho general, his sister, Mrs.
Cramer, and other i datives. Tho fu
neral had been held at Hlizabeth, nnd
nothing but tho burial servico was had
at the grave or in Cincinnati. Tho same
undertaker who had years beforo burled
the father met the party at the station,
and the casket was taken to his rooms
in a Sixth street stable, while the gen
eral with several cousins went to break
fast. I was tho only newspaper reporter
who had guessed tho exact time of the
general's arrival, and boauled the train
at Loveland, an hour's tide from Cincin
nati, taking caio to conceal the fact that
I was a repot tor. A morning paper man
was at the depot, but that did not en
danger my story lor an afternoon paper.
Together we were at once made pall
beareis for fvery pint of the subsequent
ceremonies, and afterward the Grant
family and lival newspapers wondered
how such a complete and graphic uc
count of the atlair could have been se
emed. Inside the stable tho casket was
opened to see if the embalmer had done
his work well.
It was a strange sight, tho opening of
that small cotliu containing the clay of
a woman who gave birth to America's
gieatcst general. Stable hands, assist
ants and tho undertaker only were pres
ent. Tho resemblance of mother and
sou could bo easily tiaced in the dead
face and occasioned remaik. . Then tho
body was taken to n modest homo on
Clark street, Bishop Joyce of tho Meth
odist chinch joined the cortege, and with
the leading ot the burial service ami a
prayer tho mother of General Grant was
placed beside the husband. General
Grant was, as ever, cool, unmoved, and
with his sister on his arm held his hat
to one side of his head as the first clod
struck tho cotliu lid.
His sister Caroline, who never mar
ried, lies buried with father and mother.
She was Grant's favorito sister, and died
just as he took command of the Army
of the Potomac. Sho was very fearful
in her last days that like his predeces
sors he might fail, and her last and dying
words of him weio, "Tell 'Lyss to never
give nit and do his best to win." Her
dying prayers were niisweied,as history
tells. An elder biotherof Grant died
In tho far west years ago. His health
was bad and ho undertook a journey by
wagon to Minnesota. He died on the
way and was btuied in some village
cemetery, and lew If any of tho family
know where. Undo Sammy Simpson,
who sun i veil his nephew and died aged
ninety-two, is btuied at Bantam, a little
village of Clei titont county, near the
eceno of Grant'!1 boyhood. Orvillo Grant
lies btuied at Galena.
