bo very pretty, but on tlio other hand
they nru a Herious iuconveniouco to tho
baby. It looks cunning to seo the little
tots gather up their petticoats whenever
they want to run or climb, but they
often utep on them and tuuiblo over,
and they do Horlously hamper their free
I think it would bo a good plan to
mnko tho little dresses shorter for play
and long only for show or outside wear
when a child is expected to bo still.
Up in Central park and Bryant's park,
tho two places where tho children con
gregate in tho greatest numbers with
their nurses, ono sees littlo mites in
white muslin, with long skirts and blue
or pink sashes, toddling around with at
least ono hand useless fornny other pur
poso than to lift up the long skirt.
But you see "tho latest" in all the
grades. Ono littlo gimp drss struck
mo as being very pretty, if a littlo odd.
Tho gimp was of pale bluo India silk,
with tho rest of black pongee. Thero
wero littlo butterfly bows of bluo on tho
shoulders and three of tho samo down
tho front of tho dress.
Another had a gretohen waist and
fall plain skirt of black pongee, with
tho upper part of tho waist and full
bishop sleeves of orange India silk. The
black skirt was feather stitched abovo
tho hem with orange silk. It made a
very becoming dress.
Anothor pretty picture gown for a
baby of threo was of moss green surah
"shot" with peuohblow, so that tho littlo
thing looked like a dovoiu the changing
lights. Tho skirt was long and plainly
hotmned, Tho waist was n sort of mod
ified Russian, with squares of Ilusiau
embroidery around tho neck over tho
gimp of pink silk. The balloon sleeves

A dainty littlo fancy that any girl
ran make in twenty minutes Is lnco
capote. This has a friiino mndo near

nt tho corners, edged with a littlo gilt
cord or with beads. Tho top of it can
be covered with bright sill: overlaid and
edged with luce, and in front is a butter
fly bow made of lnco fastened by the
silk. It couldn't bo prettier, nnd Is suit
able for church, receptions, theaters nnd
full dress for nuy occasion where bon
nets are worn, nnd it can also bo worn
ou pleasant days for promenade.
Another dainty littlo addition to n
plain gown, making it dressy nnd pret
ty, is a jabct of pineapple muslin, edged
with lace. A pineapple handkerchief is
generally employed to make this, and
tho lnco needs to bo almost an inch and
a half wide, of flue texture and pattern
and held on pretty full. To make it
simply catch up n jKirtion n little above
tho middle, nnd twist it so that two of
the corners fall one over the other at
tho top, and let the rest hang in oas
folds, nnd when it is in the shape as
above, tack it firmly on the back, but
not letting the stitches show. A bow of
ribbon just under tho top fall Is an ad

ToniKA, Kan., duly 1 1. Tho organi
zation of a colonization and protection
association by tho Afro-Americans once
more brings into prominence 1-Mwin 1'.
MeCubo, who was at one time auditor of
the state of Kansas, tho only negro who
ever held olllcial position in any state in
tho west. Ho has been for two years at
the head of a colonization society in Ok-1
luhomu, and liar, succeeded in securing I
homes for several thousand southern ne-1
groes in that territory. Three years ago
he founded tho town of Laugstou, which
differed from other towns in that it was
to have no whito population. The sale
of lots was conducted through MoCnbo's '
ngents, who wore preachers among the
negroes in tho southern states. Ho suc
ceeded in disposing of 1,700 lots within
tho short time of two years at prices
ranging from ten to fifty dollars, and in
gathering in his town over 700 negroes.
Establishing tho Laugstou Herald, a
weekly paper, he soon had a circulation
of more than 0,000, and was thus ena
bled to reach the people in the south for
whom ho was working.
Always urging that no negroes should
go to Oklahoma unless provided with
enough capital to keep them at least one
year, ho has succeeded in gathering the
most intelligent and tho most provident,
nnd now lionsts that his jioople aro tho
most prosperous in that territory. He
has led in the war against the
Crow" cars in tho southern states, which

wcro prepai ed especially for the negroes.
This fight, which was a legal oiio, was
mado possible by tho liberal contribu
tions whicAi ho made before asking for
aid from tlio jnoro wealthy negroes in
tho north and east.
Recently thero have been several
meetings of negroes in Topcku, Guthrie
and Little Mock for the purpose of
formulating plans that would not only
aid a wholesale immigration, but at the
same time protect those who did not
want to leave their old homes in the
south. Finally tho plans wero perfected
at Guthrie, the home of McCaho, nnd
tlio movement has been started that bids
fair to exceed in magnitude anything
that has yet been inaugurated. The do
tails have not yet licen given out, but
enough has been learned to know that
in addition to finding homes for those
who wish to go to Oklahoma the courts
will bo asked to protect thoso who re
main in tho southern states, and if that
is not dono then n semimilitury organ
ization is to undertake the work, t litis
forcing interference by tho United
McCabe is ambitious and has his mind
mado up to go to tho United States
senate whenever Oklahoma is admitted
ns a state. In addition to his philau
thtopie views he always keeps in sight
tho advisability of holding tho balance
ol power in the territory by means of
tho negro vote, which ho now holds and
control. Tho piescnt year will close
with at least 10,000 moio negio votein
in Oklahoma, bt ought thuie through
tho jn-itruiiientulity of McCube, who i
regarded as the Moses of this people.
The first legislatuie, after the tenitory
is admitted as a state, he says, will be
of such complexion as ho wishes, and
tho paity hi power at that time will be
under pledges to innko him senator.
This negio leeder is one-fourth black
and well educated. He was born and
educated in Rhode hlnud. Heisshiewd
in his dealings with both whites ami
blacks, is always aggiessive, but mvei
obnoxiously so. He does not seek tin
society of whites, nor does he make him
self familiar with tho blacks. While lie
feels humiliated over Ins social standing
on acccount ot his black blood, he ac
cepts the veidict lcndered by the whin
race and counts his white blood as uutli
I ing. He has one child, a girl, whom lie
will educate in Fiance.
