It all nlone. It is soldoin that is fanner
feels that ho can afford to biro help In
tho kitchen. 8ho has tho vegetable gnr-
den to sco to. To brighten tho dreari
ness of her life sho has closo to tho sel
dom opened front door a bed of half
starved looking (towers old fashioned
coxcomb, four-o'clocks, grass pinks and a
few other cheerful looking plants that
will thrlvo under neglect. Sho makes
everything tlint her family wears except
hats and shoes. Sho has no tlmo to think
of rest or self.
It Is in most cases her lot to welcome
a now baby every other year, and tho
only tlmo when help Is employed to as
sist her Is for a jicrlod of two or three
weeks when tho little st ranger arrives.
Tho births of tho babies aro about all
that vary tho monotony of her llfo. Oc
casionally death calls and takes from
her tired arms a littlo llfo and leaves in
Its placo an added pain in her heart. Sho
Is old nud tired out nt thirty.
When her daughters reach tho ago nt
which they could assist her tho dreary
prospect of a frontier llfo appalls them,
and they seek employment in town.
Nothing in her houso is of Into improve
ment. Her washboard Is of tho kind her
mother used, and her churn in its heavy,
clumsy build shows that it belongs to
tho Bamo ditto. Improvement stalks till
over tho farm and leaves no traco in tho
kitchen. Her pleasures aro fow. Tho
satisfaction that sho is doing her boat
seems to bo all that rowurds her. Sho
is a heroiuo in a calico dress, wrinkled
and stoop shouldered a woman with a
burden, who nover complains. Lato nt
night, when all tho members of tho
family are in bed, a light will shino out
across tho prulrio from tho family living
room. It is by this light tho fanner's wife
is doing her mending and sowing, and it
will shino out long after tho occasional
travel that way has stopped, and no
ono but tho one that blows it out knows
at what hour tho patient burden bearer's
labors ceaso. Fiiances L. Qaiisiue.
A Dainty Portfolio.
A dainty portfolio is made from heavy
eggshell paper, which can bo purchased
for about fifty
cents a sheet.
Tho pieces are all
cut and then dec
water colon In
some simple de
sign. The one
has blue forget
menots and star
front. flowers uollcately
painted so that they can bo cut out in ro
lief at tho upper edges of tho pockot
and tho cornors. A dainty blotter to be
placed insido this portfolio may bo made
from delicately tinted blotting paper
decorated In flowers or butterflies. The
initials of the person for whom the port
folio is Intended may be placed upon the
blotter, as the monogram upon tho back
of tho portfolio itself.
INSIDfc or PORTFOLIO.
If ono does not paint, a very pretty
way of decorating tho portfolio is to use
metallic luster bronzns. Small disks or
squares, overlapping in twos and three),
or even fours nnd fives; with occasional
ly a single isolated square, would form
pretty designs. Draw the squares also
on tho pockets, making two or three on
tho very edgo of the openings of the
pockets, so that tho pockets may be eat
down lowor In
a square protrude
at tho edgo in re
lief. The squares
or disks should
be painted in dif
pink, blue, green.
liver, gold, etc. back.
Oilt bows and lacings should be added
when this style of decoration is used.

In overy walk of life in this great country
look to Now York for their fashions.
Just now, tho middle of tho winter,
tho Indies in New York aro wearing the
gowns they purchased or hud mudo In
tho fall, for, contrary to jMipular Idea,
fashion does not change three times a
week, and tho ladles who purchase a fine
dress or wrap and pay a high price foi
it do not expect to lay it aside nftei
wearing It onco. Yet thoro aro always
now ideas being worked out nnd fcelort
tint on tho market to try whether popu
ar tasto will indorse them.
For Instance, this past week has shown
In four of tho largest establishment!
dresses that stand out around tho lxittom
with an effect that nothing but hoopi
could givo. In Romo tho skirt, which li
cut in a Bort of bell shape, hangs from
just under tho arms, and is gored so nt
to fall without a wrlnklo and spread
gradually until it measures nearly font
yards around tho bottom. Thoro is na
hint of tho outlines, graceful or other
wise, of tho wearor, and at tho bust
thero aro usually capo berthes, which
mark the dividing lino between tho skirt
nnd yoko, for tho uppor part of tho waist
bocomes virtually a simplo yoko. The
sleeves that nro do rigucur with this dress
aro enormous puffs, either ending at the
elbows or reaching nearly to tho wrists.

Thcso gowns should of necessity be ol
tho most superb material. Thoy' would
look positively ghastly In ordinary stuff.
Tho favorite after tho heavy riblied ve-
TWO NOVRL aOWNi,
lours is a new cloth. This is not the light
ladles' cloth of other days, nor broad
cloth with a satlnliko nap, but a closely
woven fabric which has a surfaco like
billiard cloth. It is exceedingly fine, and
tho quality is so good that it cannot bear
much trimming. Therefore the most
costly dress is tho plainest looking ono.
I was quite charmed with one dress
that waa to be worn at a "tea." It was
of old rose cloth, of superb finish, and
ornamented with a Cinch band of moss
green velvot, headed with a narrow
green embroidery. Tho front of the skirt
fell straight and tho back laid in six deep
plaits. The waist was round and gath
ered with a belt made of embroidery.
Thero wero green velvet epaulets on
the shoulders. The sleeves were quito
novel, with a band edged with very nar
row embroidery of groen. There was uo
hoop with this.
Old rose, dull blue, leathor color and
russet browns and greens aro all popular,
nnd as a rule the finer and costlier a fab
ric is tho moro delicate and refined its
colors. Tho cheaper grades show more
brilliant and less artistic coloring.
Thero was at a recent opening a boll
gown of dark blue cloth whoso skirt
was laced up on every Beam with garnet
cord, which tied in a knot near tho bot
tom. Tho yoko and sleeves wero of sol
ferino fnillo. Thoro was a capo, bound
with narrow bands of mink. Of course
these two drosses wilt bo copied in
many colors, and if ono has a clover
dressmaker a fow modifications or
changes can bo mndo.
I intonded to add, speaking of tho blue
gown, that thero were hoops, Thoso nro
I threo steel bauds set respectively four.
I ten and sixteen Inches from tho bottom,
, and thoy are run into tho silk lining in
Bonnets rango from a dime to a table
top in size, and the price varies from
$1.50 to $75. Tho least pleasing featuro
of this is that often the young woman
who buys tho cheap hat looks prettier
than sho who pays thu higher price' Still
it cannot be denied that a handsome bon
net does show Us worth. French milli
ners certainly have a faculty of giving
a bow or a bonnet some indefinable deft
twist of the fingers that none else can,
and which makes of it a thing of beauty
and 'a joy for "a season.
