Cost of Clothes.
How much does a girl in society re
quires to dress upon?" A gentlemen
with a large income, but with no end
of calls upon it, would like this ques
tion answered on a liberal but by no
means an extravagant scale. lie
naturally wishes his daughter to be
well and creditably dressed, and he
also natjysally deprecates extrava
gance and want of management. We
have asked opinions from a good
many persons who are supposed to
know, and we find that $000 ought
to "turn out," a girl reasonably well.
Of course, this would not go far if she
buys thirty dollar hats and $200
gowns, etc., but with careful handling
it may be abequate. Of course, any
number of girls spend four times that
amount, and even more. "My daugh
ter will have to marry a rich man."
said a wealthy woman the other day.
"She has $5,000 a year of her own,
and she spends every dollar ol it on
herself!" a satl commentary, by the
way, on the selfishness and luxurious
habits that the world teaches.
Another young woman, who is not
at all frivolous, but who dresses re
markably we!!, and who rides on the
crest of the fashionable wave in New
York and Newport, tells us that
$1,200 covers all her personal expens
es. "But I do not buy many things
at very grand places," she continues
"Jackets I always cet of tho very best
and one or two gowns from the swal
lest houses; but the rest of my dresses
are made by a seamstress at home,
and I generally make most of my
own hats, buying one or two really
uood ones as models." As this al
lowance meets the requirements of an
intelligent girl in society, who goes out
winter and summer, and is "never out
of the swim," it may well be taken as
a standard for that sort of thing. For
a girl who only goes out moderately
$000 should be ample. But we should
cite the instance of one pretty maiden
who only has $300 a ear to buy all
her belongings, and who, nevertheless,
always looks as fresh as a daisy and
just as delightfully simple.
Comes Natural to Women.
Self-sacrifice conies natural to
women. Much of it is born in them,
and what is not is ground into them
from their childhood by education.
For the sake of her home duties a girl
gives up amusements and privileges
which her brother would never be ex
pected to foreco for a like reason. As
she grows older the spirit grows en- J
couraged by all tradition and outside
influence. Often its power masters
her altogether, and her life becomes
one long devotion to endless labor
and acceptance of unpleasant thii gs,
that the pleasant part of living may
be kept for the rest of the family.
The purely useless side of this entire
self-abnegation must sometimes strike
the behofder. Such effacing of individ
uality is not uncommon, and it gives
as little real benefit to the family as
it does to the individual.
Putting aside the moral effect on the
younger members of a family brought
up to regard their mother ns a ma
chine run for the family service, does
the woman who so gives herself for tho
well-being of her family really accom
plish all she desires? If she work
without pause or slackening, d;iy in
and day out, does she always feel sat
isfied, with admiring onlookers, that
it is the noblest way to so spend her
health and energies? If she renounces
all recreation and higher life for her
self, and gives up all communion of
mind and spirit with her husband and
children, i the reward adequate that
is paid to them in a better-kept house,
a more bountifully supplied larder, or

times happens, outraged nature

An Independent Princess.
When the present Dowager Empress
of Germany first arrived at Berlin the
stiff and starched old dowager of the
Prussian Court took great offense be
cause the wife of their future sovereign
insisted upon notcallingupon her lady
in waiting to perform any little ser
vice for her, such as picking up her
gloves or handkerchief if she let them
fall, or bringing her a book from a shelf
or table at the ot her side of the room.
The Princess Royal of England had
never !een accustomed to such total
inaction, and she did not see why she
should be compelled to practice it
when she became Crown Princess of
Prussia. Finally she brought down
on her head a sharp remonstrance
from some haughty old countess who
discovered her in the act of carrying a
chair across her drawing-room.
"Highness," quoth the severe old
dame, "the future Queen of Prussia
never does such things as that."
The Princess set down the chair and
looked the sneaker full in the eyes.
"My mother, the Queen Regent of
Great Britian. waits upon herself al
wa,s," replied the princess, "and what
slie is accustomed to do the Crown
Princess of Prussia may certainly
imitate without derogation to her dig

To Hold a Child In Bed.
A bedclothes fastener is the latest
household device of general interest.
The purpose of that appliance is to
bold restlesi children in bed and to
keep the covers snug about their
shoulders on cold nights. The device
likewise stops the little sleepers from
lying on their backs and thus prevents
snoring and nightmare.
Here is a description of the device:
"A band is arranged to extend
across and be attached at or near its
ends and middle to the upper end of
the under side of the top sheet or
"The attachment is made by cords
fastened to the band and secured by a
whiD irrin around balls of rubbt, cork
or wood, incased by the sheet.
To each end of the mam band are
attached elastic extensions, to be se
cured by eyeholes on screw-hooks on
the bedstead, a branch band also ex
tending to a similar fastening on the
head of the bedstead, there being more
than one branch band if more than
two persons sleep in the same bed.
"toon the under side oi tne trans
verse looplike body band are band
slides on which slide loops, to each of
which is attached a double shoulder
strap, adapted to ht comfortably
over tne shoulders oi a cnua or otner
person, and partly made up of elastic
Fashionable Precious Stones.
Two varieties of precious stones
have grown rapidly more precious
within the last few months. One is
the olivine, a green chrysudolite,
much in vogue for the formation of
lizard, scorpion and bug brooches in
general. Though the value of each
stone is comparatively small, it is
double what it was a year ago, and as
it is often as beautiful in color as an
emerald, is bound to still increase.
The turauoise. on the other hand,
was not cheap a year ago, and is get
ting to set an enormous price upon it
self. Mrs. Langlry's famous fetish
would probably fetch a thousand dol
lars more in the American market to
day than it would have done had she
offered it for sale the day she became
angry and sailed for the paradoxical
country that she thinks is without a
peer and yet is full of peers. The most
ordinary little turquoise that you
would pop into the head of a silver
snake ring costs the manufacturing
jeweler $12 to $15. While, as for a
flawless one, tho size of a good fat
grain of rice, it can value itself at any
amount from $00 to $100, according
to the shade of blue.
George Gould's Domestic Wife.
Mrs. George J. Gould, who w as a
Miss Edith Kingdon, is a famous
young housekeeper, says Tho Ladies'
Home J ournal. She cares nothing for
society none of the Goulds do, no
matter wltat is said to the contrary
but devotes nil her time to her hus
band, her children and her borne.
She does all her own marketing,
knows how to select a good joint,
and, better still, knows how to cook
it. Mrs. Gould is the wife of the
prospectively richest man in America.
She has millions at her command,
yet she does not squander a penny.
Her husband gives her a fixed income
for household expences, and a liberal
allowance each year for clothing. She
keeps a little book m which is set
down the sums ol money she receives
and spends: and once eacti month she
balances it, pays all bills, and begins
a new account. She purchases every
piece of clothing worn by her children,
and often makes a special article of
wear for them herself. Mrs. Gould is
a firm believer that all wives should
have a fixed allowance from their
husbands for household and clothing
expenses. It may be much or little,
just as the husband can afford.
The Romance' of a Bible.
When John G. Keadle left homo in
1801 ns a volunteer in the Twentieth
Indiana Regiment ho took with him a
lock of his young wife's and3-monfhs-old
daughter's hair, carefully inclosed
in a Bible which was given him by his
wife. He lost t he Bible during a bat
tle. A Iriend from Georgia, visiting
George R. Uarper, in Madison, Ind.,
told how "lis relative, Captain Job
Russell, of Company A, Third Georgia
Regiment, had found just such a Bible
with the name and all in it. Harper
did not know Keadle, but advertised
the book in a Grand Army newspaper,
saying it had been placed in his keep
ing. Keadle saw tho advertisement,
went to Madison, recovered the treas
ure and has returned with it to his
home in Talbot, Ind. The daughter
is now 30 years old and married, but
her mother is dead.

"Marian," he said that night, "there
are several ways for you to get rid of
your ilant surplus. You can throw
"Go on, Mr. Bailey."
"Or you can put a sign out on the
toad: "Plants sold here,' and maybe"
"Go right on, Mr. Bailey. You know
it's two miles to the main road."
"Or, which I cordially endorse, you
can give them away."
"Now you are sensible, John. That
is what I wanted to do. But to whom
shall we give them that is the ques
tion." "Marian, do you not remember
that once last year we drove seven
teen miles to the head of the valley,
and in all that distance there was but
one garden, and that a very shabby
one, and do you not remember that
there is a school-house two or three
miles away, a rusty old shanty by the
County road? Now, suppose you
should try to get the school children
to take your surplus stock. I know
something about the district. Nearly
all the farmers are renters, and the

A few weeks later Mrs. Bailey gath

several boxes with little plants, all in
the nicest possible condition lor

her to the folorn-looking school-house,
and they introduced themselves to the

Sanborn. In a few minutes Mrs
Bailey was persuaded to venture up-

she managed in a way that appeared

She told them how beautiful flowers
were, and how ready to repay good
care. Every one might have a garden,
and at such slight expense. She de
scribed her own garden, and some of
her methods and experiments. Then
she wanted to know if there couldn't
be a garden in the school-yard, close
by the well, and if each boy and girl
would not like to carry some plants
home, and see whether they could be
made to grow. The idea took at
once, and the dear little lady gave
each child a share in the "surplus" of
"Now, children, come and see me
some Saturday afternoon and tell
me how they are growing," said she.
"Then we will find out who has the

roses. Remember, lots of water for

as a panacea for all earthly ills. One
of the latest suggested is the following:
If your new shoes are stiff of course
they are not' tight stand in two or

moments, then rub your shoes dry
and keep them on. You will find that
you can do so with comfort.
A stirring incident took place not
ong ago in Courbevoie, when Paul
Leprince, the aeronaut, and one of his
friends, made a balloon ascension.
They had reached an elevation of fif
teen hundred feet, when they began to
hear a peculiar whistling sound. Le
prince climbed upon the ring, and dis
covered a tear, a few inches long, made
by the branch of a tree, against which
they had swept in their upward pas
sage. What followed is related by
Leprince in L'lllustration.
At this moment, the sun dispelled
the clouds and shone with all its force
upon the balloon. This produced such
an expansion of eas that tho valve
was not sufficient to lessen the strain,
and the fabric tore apart, with a noise
like the rustling of leaves. Through
tho opening poured the gas in great
"We are lost!" cried my friend.
"The ballast!" shouted I. "The bal
(ast!" In an instant two bags were thrown
out. I saw by the barometer that we
were nearly five thousand feet from
the ground", and then tho fall began.
VVe threw out everything of any weight,
and prepared to cast off our clothing,
and resolved to cling, at the moment
of striking, to the netting above.
Fortunately there was a strong
wind blowing, which carried us along
at the rate of thirty-five or forty miles
an hour, and enabled us to fall at an
ingle, thus softening the shock.
The balloon was violently shaken in
ta flight, and kept swinging and sway
ing in a horrible manner, but this mo
tion was, after all, what saved us.
During one of the most vigorous of
these movements, the lower part of
the balloon was thrown to the upper
part of the netting, and rested there
against the valve, in the shape of a
dome, forming an immense paruchute.
At onco the fall was sensibly arrested,
but we were still one hundred yards
from the ground. The time had coma
to throw overboard our clothes, but
there proved to be no time.
Scarcely had we reached the ropes
attached to the ring; when a terrible
shock was felt; and we, the basket
and balloon, were rolltd over on the
ground together. We were not injur
ed, nor did we even lose conscious
ness, and thus was a fall of nearly a

A Sure Mark.
The tact that is born of true kind-
heartedness is a thing for which its
possessor may well be admired and
imitated. "I like your friend Grace
Hunt a great deal better tha n I do El

Tom to his sister i anny at tho tea-
table, one evening.
"Why?" asked Fanny in some sur

"She may be," assented Tom.doubt
fully, "but I don't call her very polite.
I told Grace that funny story father
read us out of Mr. Black's letter to
day. and she laughed and said it was
a splendid story, and that she should
remember it and tell it to somebody
else. But when I tried to tell it to
Ellen Mayo, she interrupted me be

And, Tom, the fact is, I told the story
to Grace, too, at tho same time Ellen
"I don't care anything about that,"
said Tom, decidedly, "except I like
her all the letter for it. She didn't
make me f'l uncomfortable, and as if
I was an old newspaper as Ellen did.
"I say she's a lady!"
"And I agree with you, my son,"
said his father, "and I'll venture to
predict that she's a girl who'll make

"It may be so, answered Angelo,
but recollect that trilles make per

As in many other cases of discovery
that of the telescope appears to have
been the result of a playful accident.
Several stories are told about it, but
The one most generally accepted
tells how, abont the year of 1590, just
300 years ago, the children of Zacha
riah Jansen, a spectacle-maker, resid
ing at Middleburg, in Holland were
in their father's workshop and ob
served that when they held between
their fingers two spectacle glasses, 'one
some distance before the other, and
looked through them at the weather
cock of the church it seemed inverted,
but very much nearer to them and
greatly increased in size.
Their father, when his attention
was called, saw that one of the glasses
was convex and the other concave.
He made experiments and ended by
fixing such glasses iu wooden tubes a
few inches long and selling them for
curiosities. Another account tells us
how one Lipperscheim discovered the
telescope in a similar manner. Des
cartel, liowever, a cotemporary, gives
tho credit to .lames menus, a giuss
cutter in Holland, whose brother, a
professor of mathematics and a ma
ker of burning glasses and mirrors,
hit upon the discovery in the same
way that Jansen's children are said
to have done.

should never be suffered to exceed it
or to draw upon the future. The
youth should be taught to undergo
self-denial rather than to borrow the
money to obtain a gratification.
