The newest outing gowns are of blue

but is usually made without seams,
with large slits finished with pocket
flaps and buttons on the hips. A pet
ticoat of blue silk, or of alpaca, is us
uallv worn underneath it in place of
the foundation skirt. The belt of the
dress may be a lace Swiss corset, to
which the skirt is attached, or a
separate belt may be worn with it.
The bodice is a shirt waist of silk or
linen, and a reefer jacket, lined with
same silk as the shirt waist, com
pletes the costume. For a young girl,
a white serge suit, or crimson, makes
a very pretty outing dress. It is a
fancy of the season to wear suspenders
with the shirt waist, meseare mere
straps of serge, attached to the Swiss
bodice or to the straight skirt band.
They are corded or trimmed in some
ornamental manner to correspond
withthetrimmingof thegown. A piping
edge of gold cord on a white serge, or
a pale blue corded on a dark blue
serse. is a suitable trimming. Cold
or silver belts are popular for young
ladies to wear with dresses of white
or blue serge.
This picturesque yachting costume
consists of askirt of admiral blue serge,
with a silk shirt of the same color,
striped with cream, and sleeveless coat
of cream serge. The sheath skirt of this
costume is linished with several rows
of stitching above the hem and slits,
fastened by pocket Haps and largo
buttons on the hips. The eleveless
i'ocket of cream serge is fitted in at the
ack and made in reefer's fashion at
the front. The rolling sailor hat worn
with this costume is a white straw
trimmed around the crown with a
gold band, on which are painted the
flag and insignia of the yacht with
which the woarer is connected. Good

A skirt is cut with gored front and
sides and straight back width. It is
cut ten inches shorter than the length
of the figure trom the waist-line to

pinch up a fold of the goods and
sew it to the yoke. Face the
hem up on Hhe right side

material. Make a rather deevt circu

watorproof may be stitched on the
yoke flat; the cape should be held

skirt. Three buttons and loops, one
on either side and one at the back,
will be sufficient or more may be ad

the hem of the cape will answer the

Field Cultivation for Fodd.r
Com Karat Xts and
On an old homestead In one of the
northern New England states was a
field of about thirty acre. The sur
face of this plot inclined gently to the
south. Three ridges extended nearly
across the plot from north to south.
The ridges grew gradually less until
at the south side they nearly disap
peared. The land between these as
well as the whole south part of the
field was wet and heavy. Some sea-
eons it could not be plowed at all.
other seasons not till late, and then
the soil was hard and lumpy. No
crops did well. Grass was frozen out
uid thin. It would not average 1,000
pounds of bay to the acre.
The larger stone had been used to
enclose the thirty-acre field with a
good substantial stone walL The
smaller stone such as were unsuitable
for fences had mostly been drawn
into piles. Other yet smaller ones
were scattered over the ground. The
large stone piles were unsightly and
those remaining on the ground were
continually in the way. The first
question was how to dispose of these
small stones. It was decided to bury
them in these low places, thinking
from there they would never work to
the surface. So a trench or ditch was
commenced at the north end of one of
these low places or hollows. The
ditch was dug three foet deep and two
foet wide. Stones were hauled on a
dump-cart and tipped in promiscuous-'
ly and covered with one and one-half
feet of earth. It was asked why not
lea ve an open space at the bottom and
extend this trench across the field; this
perhaps might make a drain as well as
rid It of stones. Then a row of hard
heads was laid clong each side and
covered with the best flat stones to bo
had, leaving a space of about six by
eight inches open at the bottom. On
these small stones were dumped and
all covered with from twelve to sixteen
Inches of earth.
This experiment was closely
watched. It worked like a charm.
The next season two other main ditches
were extended across the field. Later
a few laterals were placed wherever
needed. It finally resulted In a per
fectly clean, well drained field. Tho
soil became mellow and dry, with the
application of manure all spring crop's
did remarkably well. No extra labor
was employed in putting down these
ditches except about $70 paid for dig
ging. It was all done at odd spells. '
This ditching was complete! in 1855

. No matter how well done, heavy loss
of hay results from stacking; and a
novice loses often as much as 40 per
cent in quality and rotted, worthless
tops snd sides. This waste is worse
than to give away such a proportion of
standing grass, for labor and time
were required for storing. Estimates
from experience indicate that a poor
man would better pay 10 per cent in
terest on lumber to protect hay. Hay,
time and labor saved would pay the
interest and gradually reduce the prin
cipal borrowed, placing a good barn
where only "wind-swept" sod offered
no shelter before. If stacks must be
built no stack-pole should bo allowed;
or if used, should bo sawed oft clo;e

otherwise enter. Most water naturally
enters the top. A roof movable up
and down on poles surrounding the
stack is a good thing seldom seen.

a high point and brought well down on
