Of late evening dress has been more
.. of a covering, and in New York ladies
have shown a tendency to wear them
long in the sleeves and moderately
' high in the neck. However, this being
the case, there is amplescope for pret
ty design in dresses of this kind, some
thing a little poetical and unconven
tional may be indulged in, as on the
following sketch, where there is a sug
gestion of the style of the Middle Ages
in the puffed sleeves and Romeo like
collar. It is made of shrimp pink
nun's cloth and green and pink Wat
teau satin, the patch like decoration
bodice, the lower part of the sleeves,
the border of the trained skirt and the
outside of the collar all being of the
Watteau satin. The inside of the col
lar is of pale creamy satin and the
other accessories are just piped with
this material. The gown is made in
princess shnpe, and is laced broadly
down the front with a green silk lace.
Straw hats are getting to look quite
antique and lace hats look Methuse
lah like. It is almost too early to
plunge into felt, and velvet we reserve
until the snow is on the ground. But
there is jet. Jet sparkling, rich, be
coming, piquant, lighting up a pale
face, enhancing a rosy one, harmoniz
ing with the raven tresses, contrasting
finely with golden ones. Yes, jet will
be the thing to wear just now, and it
is made in such variety, such distract
ing shapes, such tempting fashions
that though it is expensive many
women will prefer to have one jet bon
net to three of any other sort. There
is the Marie Stuart shape which re
quires to be mounted on velvet and
will be found very becoming, but
rather matronly. For younger faces
the Vassar sailor, the jet part very
petite and mounted on terra verte
velvet with green and black tips, is a
hat that will meet with great favor,
jet butterflies have fluttered over city
heads for some time past, but the jet
grasshopper has only been worn lately
and has not had sufficient time to be
come hackneyed. Redfern introduces
him into his millinery department,
where he disports himself on stylish
hats and bonnets. As a decoration
for the bosom of a velvet evening
gown he is also encouraged, and the
effect of him against a snow-white
round arm, from which he just raises
t' e sleeve, is a thing worth noting.
All About Hairpins.
Hairpins vary in price from a few
pennies a gross to $500 apiece. Per
haps the hairpin is the most useful
all around article of feminine wear.
It serves not only for the purpose for
which ih was designed, but also as
glove-buttoner, shoe-buttoner, cuff
fastener and even brestpin.
A distinguished West Virginian who
frequently visits New York has dis
covered an entirely new use for the
hairpin. lie converts it into a file for
the preservation of newspaper clipp
ings. His method is to twist the
hairpin into a hook, sink one end in
to the wall or window sill and file his
clippings on the end that is free. He
never buys hairpins but obtains an
ample supply from the pavements,
where they aredaily shed in thousands
from thegolded, red. black, brown and
gray tresses of New York women.
The cheapest hairpins are thinly
lacquered wires bent into suitable
shape. They are made by the million
for little or nothing, and the manu
facturers' price would iill every
woman with a sense of outrage at the
profits made by retailers. Small, thin,
kinky hairpins are a modern improve
ment on the straight, old-fashioned
variety, but even they are made for a
trifle per gross, lhe costlier hairpins
are not so variously serviceable as the
They are made of gold, silver and
tortoise-shell, sometimes ornamented
with precious stones, and with rich
workmanship. Tortoise-shell in the
rough is worth from $5 to $8 a pound.
The finest is lrom tins belly of the tor
toise. That yields the amber-colored
shell from which the costliest pins and
combs are made. Small pins, all of
tortoise-shell, cost from St. 50 to S4.
Larger ones cost from $4 to $9. Pine
amber shell pins, with gold tops, cost
from $8 to $00. After these come the
jewelled pins. They may be of almost
any price. Simple ones cost from $50
to $75. More elaborate ones, with
pearls and diamonds, may cost from
$100 to $500. New York Recorder.
The most healthful flooring is the
hard-wood, or its humbler relations,
the painted or stained floors. They
do not get full of dust and moths,
and are readily cleaned. They re
move the heaviest load from the
semi-annual house-cleaning, while
after contagious illness they do not
need special fumigating. They are,
on the other hand, expensive from
their own cost, and from the rugs
they require to remove the bare

Wood carpeting, or American par

Chicago n especially kindto women
who practice law, and some of them
hold high places in the profession.
Judge J. B. Bradwell presided, some
time ago, at a dinner of the Illinois
Bar Association, and his idea on the
subject may be gathered from the tact
that his wife, Mrs. Myra Brad well, has
been for over twenty years the editor
of the Chicago Legal News, and his
daughter, Mrs. Bessie B. Helmer, lias
studied law, and has assisted her
father in editing twelve volumes of the
Appellate Reports of Illinois.

well-arranged journal. Mrs. Helmer,
Judge Bradweil's daughter, was mar

she had suflicient self-contidence to
make a graceful though modest speech.
A few sentences of her speech were:
"Woman in the learned professions.
As a preacher, we know that she is
eminently qualified to stand by the

broken-hearted and mourning by the

INTERESTING SUBJECTS FOR
Gear Hunting at NightClumsy
Flnasrs A Friendship Calen
darThe Rain Pool by the
Bear Hunting at Night.
In the earlier part of tho present
century many of the counties of the
state of New York that are now thick
ly settled were more or less a wilder
ness and largely infested with bears.
The hardships of the settlers at that
time in clearing the land and raising a
subsistence were increased by the rav
ages of these animals on the pig-stye,
sheep-rot and grain fields. With die
care the sheep and pigs could be pen
ned against these nocturnal maraud
ers, but oftentimes whole acres of corn
were nearly devastated.
At that time it was customary to
hunt bears in the same way that rac
coons are hunted at the present time.
Parties with cutis and trained dogs
would scour tin) cornfields in the vicin
ity in the evening and if the dogs
scented the bears they usually ran
still until close" to the game. When
the bear started for the woods the
dogs nipped his heels, which would
cause him to take to the nearest tree
possible. Small dogs were preferred
to large ones, as they were better at
dodging among the standing corn and
pumpkin vines when the bears turned
and made a uliort dash after them as
they often did.
Some sixty or seventy years ago
there lived iii the wilds of Schoharie
county a person noted for this style
of hunting. He was named Elijah
Dibble, but better known as Uncle
Ligo. He and his dog had slaughtered
more bears than all of the rest of the
hunters for miles around. This was
not. altogether owing to his superior
merits as a hunter, but his faithful
little cur never failed to place bruin
up the tree and kept him there until
his master arrived.
One day early in autumn several
youngsters from twelve to sixteen
years of age while out blackberrying
discovered unmistakable signs of
bears' work in a cornfield. They
visited Uncle Lige to agree upon a
night when he would go with them
and give bruin a hunt. The old man
was loth to go with the youngsters,
fearing when he needed their help they
might befound wanting. When I he dog
gave tongue Uncle Ligo usually pushed
on alter and it was required of his
attendants to fire the resinous torch
carried for the occasion and follow the
hunter as soon as possible with the
light to enable him to shoot the game
before it left the tree and made for the
distant mountains, as it was a diffi
cult matter for the dog to treo them
the second time. The ladsmadegreat
promises of courage and Uncle Lige
When evening came all were on
hand, making renewed promises of
being heroes if necessary.
The night was dark and favorable
for game. When they arrived at the
field the dog was started out and all
remained silent. After waiting some
time the dog began to give tongue sharp
and furiously, which in a few seconds
turned to cries of distress. He had
come upon bruin suddenly and press
ed him with such eagerness that the
bear had turned and caught him and
was hugging him with a vengeance.
Uncle Lige rushed to the rescue of
his dog and called to the lads to light
the torch and come quickly. Instead
of lighting the torch they dropped it
and ran for lile. Uncle Lige pushed
on and soon came to the bear, which
was still hugging the dog. Taking aim
as well as he could in the darkness he
made a lucky shot and bruin rolled
over dead. Fortunately for the dog
he was too small for the bear to bring
his pressure to effect and the dog was
not seriously injured.
Uncle Lige soon gathered fuel, struck
a light and commenced skinning the
bear. After some time he heard tho
would-be heroes calling from a dis
tant hill, "Uncle Lige! Uncle Lige!
Have you killed him? "Yes" the old
man replied. They soon came up peil
mell, each one telling which part was
his, to which Uncle Lige replied, "Not
a particle of t his bear will either 'of
you get. I'll teach you not to run and
leave me when my dog is in bear's
clutches." The old man was as good
as his word and did not give them a
For years after that hunt was a
standing joke at their expense, a re

A Friendship Calendar,
I have found, lately, a very pretty
and simple way to surprise one's
friend on her birthday or at Christ
mas. The article is called a Friendship
Calendar, and a few words will suffice
to show how it is made.
Cut 305 strips of paper one for
each day in tho year about three by
five inches. The simpler and less ex
pensive way is to invest in two or
three unruled memorandum blocks,
large enough to divide each sheet into
three parts. With your pen and ink,
date each slip directly at the top. or
in the left hand upper corner. Make
out a list of the friends of the person
for whom it is designed. If vou do
not know all whom you think she
would be glad to have represented,
you can address through a mutual
friend, or directly with an enclosed
Ol course no one expects to Imu .i(o
different friends, so distribute your
slips to the various persons, giving
each from two to twelve, being careful
the dates are far apart. Ask them to
write a verse, a quotation, or some
thing original, adding the author's
and their own name. The donor
would want to be represented every
month, and possibly there might be
one or two others.
There will be a number who would
be willing to fill out six slips, and
other friends, more or less, as they
stand in friendly relation, according
to the discretion of the donor. Jt is
well to prepare for making it fully
three months beforehand, as the ab
sence of even a few slips will delay the
whole. As soon as the slips are all
collected and in order, arrange them
so that the day yon present it will be
the outside slip. Then take them to
the bookbinders and ask him to
block, cut and glue them as he would
an ordinary memorandum pad.
The board at the back to which the
block is to be fastened or glued, is to
lie about as large as those of the
Dickens or Shakespeare calendars one
sees at the holiday season.
If one is artistic, it can be painted.
It can also be made of chamois skin,
china silk or fine cretonne and sateen
in delicate colors, with a square cut
and a photograph of thedonor uiwct
ed. The block in this case would be
put at one side. It will readily be
seen what a pleasure a calendar ot
this sort would brins oire, whose
friends, are a part of their life. To
the sick room what a blessing to l
greyed each morning with a word,
bright, serious, "comforting or inspir
ing in the very handwriting of the
absent! And then the grateful
thought is turned toward the giver!
It in well worth nil the trouble. Try

'It is of no use my trying to sew,"
said a girl in her late teens; "I am so
clumsy with a needle. My stitches are
an inch long! M inima does my mend
ing. She says when I do it myself my
things look so that she is ashamed to
let me wear them."
But if the mother were less self-sacrificing,
it is probable that a few
hours' practice under her direction
would easily reduce those clumsy
stitches to a respectably small frac
tion of an inch in length.
Another young lady admitted, the
other day, with A laugh, that she al
ways darned her own stockings by
drawing the edges of the holes togeth
er with tho thread, because weavingit
in and out as her mother did took so
much more time and care.
Girls of this sort belong to tho un
trained or the lazy class. But the
careless are quite as common and
perhaps more exasperating.
"Oh, I'm very sorry; but you know
I always was a butter-fingers," ex
plains calmly the dreamy young per
son who spills gravy in a lady's la pat
dinner, because the is passing the
gravy-boat with her mind on the last
chapter of a story, and does not not
ice that she is tipping it.
Presently she helps to butter, with
the same vague expression in her eyes,
and sends tho bit which she attempts
to cut from the hard pat without
looking at it, flying across the table.
"Did it spot your dress?" she asks
her sister; "I hone not; but, of course,
I couldn't help its flying off. I'm very
sorry." But the trouble is precisely
that she is not very sorry; at least,
not sorry enough to prevent the same
thing from happening again.
It is worth while to remember that
there is such a thing as being stupid
with one's fingers. There should be
direct communication between the
hand and the brain; but some people,
with otherwise excellent brains, do
not seem to realize this fact, and al
low their hands a kind of helpless lib
erty which works disaster among
bric-a-brac, and makes many simple
tasks absurdly formidable. Youth's

The Rain Pool by the Way,
A common and sometimes rather
annoving incident of African travel fre
quently happens, even when there is
no absolute scarcity of water, that
the weather is sufficiently hot and the
road dusty enough to make a glimpse
of a clear, fresh pool of cool rain wat
er particularly welcome. But while
the thirsty traveler is anticipating a
luxuriantdraughl. theeager dogscatch
sight of it and, rushingforward, plunge
all together into the pool, and lap the
water as they bathe, while the native
.followers kneel among them and se
cure their share. The European, if he
be really thirsty, must then check his
feelings of disappointment and drink
the liquid in tho foul condition in
which he finds it.
I once saw," said a traveler, "after
an almost waterless journey of nearly
forty miles, a broad and placid rain
pool surrounded by grassy borders,
in an opening in the forest. For one
minute it reflected the clear blue sky
and surrounding trees, but in another
moment the loose cattle rind the
horses broke into a trot, the wagon
oxen forgot, their weariness, and then
the place of the rain pool was occu
pied by a crowd of men and animals,
and vehicles, trampling the clear
waters into a semi-fluid of the color
and consistency of mud."
