For the time being all dressmakers,
even the greatest, are in a state of un
certainty, not knowing which of their
"designs will find favor and which be
rejected by propoctive wearers.
. Large rou;. . loaks, very long, are
among the new autumn wraps. These
have a velvet yoke, and are many
of them of shaggy stuffs, rough-look-ing,
though exceedingly soft to the
touch. The shape is more convenient
than graceful. Other long cloaks,
adjusted to the form, . with a cape
dropping to the waist, are quite as
convenient to wear, and more agree
able to the sight. The Russian
cloaks, are in indistinct stripes, fine
checks and water-proof cloths. Ixng
cloaks worn with visiting toilettes by
middle-aged and old ladies are adjust
ed in the back, and either half-fitting
or close-fitting at the front;
the former for etout figures,
the latter for those which
have preserved their 6lenderness.
Velvet or armure-patterned silks are
used for these handsome cloaks, with
a narrow edging of fur and a deep
collar and cuffs of the same fur.
Among the prettiest of the. short or
half-short wrappings is a rather long
jacket of dark cloth, which opens on
a square velvet vest. The vest is
belted in by a' half-belt coniin? from
the sides, the belt being in many cases
f leather with gold or gilded buckle.
This jacket may be accompanied by
a detachable cape, which is buttoned
underneath the collar when worn, .
There are numbers of short wraps
of various kinds, which belong to
handsome visiting costumes, but
which, when the weather grows severe,
will be suplemented by a long cloak
that will be taken off before entering
the drawing-room. One odd little
cape is of dark-colored velvet, notched
at the lower edge, the points barely
reachihe the elbow: it has a' high
collar, from which droop tabs of rep
ped silk at even intervals on the
velvet between the points; the velvet
between the tabs is embroidered, and
each - velvet point is finished with a
long tassel. Similar capes for young
girls are made more simply of cloth
and silk without embroidery Many
of the long end short wraps are made
of the short-piled plush called velours
du Nord, which is growing in favor,
and for wraps is preferred to the
lighter Lyons velvet. For mornings
with simple dresses long jackets or
coats are worn, someitmes extending
to the knee, of cloth of thecolor of the
dress, or of a rough woollen for gener
al wear with lighter weight woollen
dresses. The long round capes which
have been so popular are still worn
to some extent, but the shape is now
used chiefly for evening or theatre
wraps. Thus there are long capes of
red cloth or in light tints, trimmed
with ecrn gnipifre. The red capes are
rather striking and eccentric. Some
of the handsome black silk redingote
cloaks have revers of lace, and a scarf
of black lace coming from under the
arms and lorming a sort of corselet
then knotted at front, with long

long. A sort of varnish has been pre
pared which will bring the color of the

small brush, drawn across a few
strands at a time, from the roots to
the ends. The day after the varnish
is put on the hair is washed, and the
color is then permanent, or at least

chatelaine braid is one of the most at

likely to be most popular, as it shows
the beauty of the hair and admits of
the use of many fancy pins. To ar
range the chatelaine braid the hair is
drawn to the back of the head, either
smooth or slightly waved, as best
suits the face beneath. Four plaits
are made, which are coiled around tho
back of tl)e head from the nape of the
neck nearly to the front hair, and
fastened with shell pins. The shape

Woman's Chances to Marry.
An English weekly not long ago gave
its readers some information on this
subject which is apt for the present
purpose. It said: Taking tho earliest
marrying age to be 15, which is the
minimum in most civilized countries,
and letting 100 represent her entire
chance of marrying, at certain points
of her progress through life a woman's
chances of marriage stand in the fol
Between the ages of 15 and 20 14J
Between the ages of 'M ami 2f M
Between the ages of 25 and 30 18
Between tha age3 ol 30 and 35 10i
Between the ages of 35 and 40 31
Between the ages of 40 and 45 "i
Between the ape of 45 and 50 i of 1
Between the ages of 50 and 00 of 1
Above the age of CO her chances are
only one-tenth of 1 per cent, or two
in 1,000. That marriage is a lottery
is a time-worn saying, but Sir Francis
Galton has been investigating the re
sult so far as temper is concerned,
with the following curious results,
based on the peculiarities "of 205
couples. He found that 58 per cent
of the wives had good tempers, against
only 46 per cent of good-humored
husbands; twenty-two husbands had
mild and docile wives, ana twenty-
four had fretful, violent and masterful
wives. Of fifty-four bad-tempered
men, thirty-two had good-tempered
and twenty-two had bad-tempered
wives. It was also found that 28 per
cent of the. wives are fretful, 13 per
cent violent and 6 per cent masterful.
Advice to the Girls.
Girls, don't think that every young
man who calls upon you once or twice
is in love with you.
Don't think because you are pret
tier than your neighbor across the
way, and have prettier gowns, that it
is right to try to flirt from your front
stoop with her beau when he calls up
Don't astonish your friends and ac
quaintances with magnificent gowns,
while your mother wears cneap pom-
baze and a cloak and bonnet that
everyone can see has done at least
live years service.
Don't show up lily-white taper fin
gers if hers are seamed w ith work.
Uon t Pe always drumming ou me
piano when your visitors call.
Don't expect that a man's atten
tions are sincere until he informs you
in plain English that they are.
Don't hint to a man that you like
him and that he is your ideal, and
that you wouldn't mind leaving the
state of single-blessedness it '-Barkis
Don't make yourself obnoxious by
appearing persistently at places you
know to be his usual haunts until the
young man has a fear in turning each
corner he comes to lest he will meet
Don't accept your wedding outfit
from the hands of your lover.
Open the Windows.
Many, indeed the majority of per
sons, sleep with closed windows, es
pecially in winter, and think that they
sleep better on that account. And so
they do if they are accustomed to the
stupefying effect of tlie poisonous car
bonic acid gas which is continually be
ing evolved from the lungs, and which,
in a close room, acts as a narcotic.
Although it may aid in producing a
heavy death-like sleep, it is also ac
companied almost invariably by the
tired, unrefreshed feeling with which
so many will rise to do the duties of
the day. To show tho power of such
an atmosphere in sending people to
sleep, you have only to enter one of
our large churches m the evening, and
you will find half the people asleep
under its influence, the heavily laden,
gaseous air producing a drowsiness
which is almost impossible to resist.
At this season of the year it is possible
to introduce many changes which in
winter might be difficult to manage in
the way both of accustoming young
people to plenty of fresh air in their
bedrooms, and also to the invigorat
ing effect of cold water in their ab
lutions. The Correct Thing" In Dinners.
The laws and requirements of a
dinner which shall combine simplicity
with excellence, may be summoned
up as follows: The number of guests
should never exceed twelve; the rooms
should be warm but not unduly close;
the table well lighted; waiting quiet
and unobtrusive; the dishes choice,
but few in number; the wines of the
first quality, each in its degree; "the
men should be spirited without pre
tension, and the women pleasant
withont'eoquetry;" nobody should
leave before 11. but everybody shouW
be in bed before 12.
A Dinner of Surprises.
A few days ago a distinguished
London artist gave a supper to some
of his confreres. The menu was full
of surprises. A pie of Java sparrows
figured in the list, an i also a nest ol
nightingales. It seems to have been
an ideal romantic sort of supper ol
Trimalchio. The table was mads ol
glass, covered with fine linen, and a
garland of roses wound its way down
the center, broken here and there by
nymphs supporting a garland ol

One morning, during leseon time,
Mr. Graham was cabled away. Before
leaving the class-room he set all the
boys to work and bade them go on
steadily until his return. The boys
obeyed, but Mr. Graham being de
tained longer than he had expected,
their work was finished some time be
fore his return.
'What shall we do now?" asked
. "Rest," laughed Archie.
"You lazy younstir," retorted Tom,
"I believe you hate the very name of
Archie laughed again.
"I'm going to look at one of those
jolly books up there on the shelf," an
nounced Gilbert. "I suppose we're al
lowed to use them?"
"Oh, yes," returned Tom, "you may
have any book you like, so long as
you are careful not to spoil it."
"O, I'll take care," cried Gilbert,
scrambling up to the bookcase and
possessing himself of the book he
wanted. "Come and look at it with
me, Archie, he added, turning to his
"No, thanks," said Archie merrily,
I told you I was going to rest, and I'll
keep my word. I shall have to go
back to "books as soon as Mr. Graham
comes in." .
"You're a dreadfully lazy young
ecamp," replied Uilbert, "but never
mind, I can enjoy my book alone."
He seated himself at the table as he
spoke and began eagerly to turn over
the pages of his book. ' ' '
Gilbert read on, not noticing any
thing around him, when suddenly a
noise startled him. Moving hastily,
he managed to overturn a whole bot
tle of ink over Mr. Grahm'8 beautiful
book. "Oh what shall I do?" he ex
claimed. Archie jumped up. "Here,
take this blotting paper," he cried,
and at once began to help Gilbert. -
Agreat deal of blotting paper was
used, but you may imagine, little
reader, it did not do much good to
the damaged book. Gilbert dried the
pages by the fire as well as ne could,
but the volume was quite spoiled.
"You 11 catch it, Gilbert,'1 remarked
"He couldn't help it," said Archie.
"Put the book back and say noth
ing about it suggested Gerald.
Gilbert stared. Do you think I'd
act or tell a he?" he asked. '
Gerald turned rather red. I didn't
mean it," he said.
"I shall, of course, tell Mr. Graham
about it directly when he comes back,"
continued Gilbert. "I expect he'll be
awfully angry, but I must put up with
"That's right Gilbert," said Archie:
"you're as plucky as yon can be: and
none of you hod better let me hear
you ctill Bert a coward again. He
knows what real pluck is."
When Mr. Graham returned Gilbert
took the damaged volume to him and
told him of his accident. "I'm very
sorry, sir," the boy said, nervously;
"but, indeed, I couldn't help it. I
tried to be careful, only something
startled me, and made me overturn
the ink. Will you forgive me? I'm so
Mr. Graham looked very grirved.
"I, too, am sorry for thedamagedone
to my beautiful book, Gilbert," he
said: "but you have not attempted
to deceive me. As you have, at once,
told the truth, I forgive you gladly,
"Thank you, sir," returned Gilbert,
gratefully; "I will be very careful in
"Yes," said Mr. Graham, "another
time, when you trtke down one of
my books, put ink or anything else
that might injure if, out of the way.
I like books to be kept very clean and
free from injury. Will you remember,
"Yes, sir, that I will," the boy said
earnestly, "I'm more sorry thnn I can
say, I thought you'd be dreadfully
angry about it."
"I'm never an'ry, when my boys
tell me the whole truth," returned Air.
How to Swim.
Swimming may some day, with any
one of you, be a life-saving mat
ter. By all means, or any means,
learn to swim. You must first of all
get accustomed to the water, so that
you will not be scared if your head
should happen to plump under all of
a sudden. Don't go out of your
depth, but learn to keep afloat where
the water is about breast high; that
is smooth water; in surf there is al
ways a strong undertow, waist high ia
far enough to venture, and never try
learning to swim in the surf.
Thq best stroke for long distances
is the side stroke. There are several
styles. Lying upon one side say
the right stretch the right arm out
ahead, palm down, and bring it with
a strong downward sweep through the
water to the thigh. As the right hand
nears the side the left is swung over
through the air just ahead of the
right shoulder, and then it is brought
through the water with a widesweepal
most horizontally to the left thigh. The
right leg is drawn up and straightened
at right angles with the body behind,
and the left leg similarly in front.
Then the legs are brought forward to
gether, the right catching the water
on the outside, and top of the foot,
and the left on the inside and the sole.
Somewhat like the opening and shut
ting of a pair of shears.
A peculiarity of this stroke is that
the swimmer's face is turned upward
and over his left shoulder, so that he
looks behind him. The advantage of
thisia that the crown of .his head
meets the waves and his mouth is al
ways out of water.
The plain overhand or turtle stroke
-reaching forward first with one hand
then the other, and rolling the body
from side to side is the fastest for a
short distance, but cannot be kept up
The old-fashioned and commonest
style of swimming is the breast stroke,
an exact imitation of a frog. It is
easy, but not very fast. An expert
too long to grt a fuU breath thrcogi

son you must prevent him from tak
ing bold of you. As you approach
bun go under water, and if he is faced
toward you catch him by the legs and
twirl him around. Then come up be
hind him aud grasp him by the collar,
or the hair at the back of the head.
To tow him ashore swim upon your
back, using your feet and right hand
for compuUion, and drag him after
you. If he does turn and try to catch
hold, hit him in the stomach with j
your knee, and hit lum hard. 1! ne
cessary, punch his head and stun him.
Do anything to break his hold if he
grabs you, because if you don't both
of you will drown." Treasure Trove,
What la Rattan?
Every one knows the pretty, light,
and graceful chairs and other articles
mm it 1 m.
oi lurniture maae iroin rattan, out
every one does not know that the ex
tremely tough and flexible wood called
rattan is that of the climbing palm
tree. This curious climber, which is
more of a vine than a tree, is one ol
the singular characteristics of forest
crowth in the Celebes and other Ma
layan " countries. Starting with a
trunk a little thicker than a man's
arm, it winds through the forest, now
wrapping a tall tree in its fold, like
some gigantic snake, and then descend
ing again to the earth and trailing
along in snake-like curves until it can
find some other stately tree to fasten
and climb upon in its pursuit of light
and air. ' The forest is so thick and
jungle-like that it seems impossible to
follow the course of any one of these
serpent climbers; but there is little
doubt that at the lost the successful
aspirant, which stooped and cringed
so long below, will be found shooting
pp like a ' ilng staff a dozen feet or
more nbo the tree which has helped
it to rise.
A use of rattan, which is unknown
to those who haye not seen it in its
naMve forest, is as a water carrier.
The thirsty traveler has at all times
a tumbler of cool, refreshing water at
his command by cutting off six or
eight feet of rattan and putting one
of the severed ends to his month, or
holding it over1 a dish to catch the
How Birds Learn to Sing-.
A wren built her nest in a box on a
New Jersey farm. The occupants of
the farm-house saw the mother teach
ing her young to sing. She sat in front
of them and sung her whole song very
distinctly. One of her young attempt
ed to imitate her. - After proceeding
through a few notes its voice broke
and it lost the tune. . The mother re
commenced where the young one had
failed,' arid went very distinctly
threugh with the remainder. The
young bird made a second attempt,
commencing where it had ceased be
fore, and continuing the song as long
as it was able, and when the notes
were again lost, the mother began
again where it had stopped and com
pleted it.' Then the young one re
sumed tho tune and finished it. This
done, the mother sang over the whole
series of notes the second time with
great precision, and again the young
one attempted to follow her. The
wren pursued the same ' course with
this one as with the first, and so with
the third and fourth, until each of the
birds became a perfect songster.

" Where we are, how we got here,
and the way out"
By Hon. W. A. PEFFER,
V. S. BEMATOB THOU KAN HAS.
- Price, Sjl.OO.
There l a demand for a comprehensive and
authoritativo book which shall represent the
farmer, and set forth his condition, tho influ
ences surroundinjr him, and plans and prospects
for the future. This book lias been written by
lion. W. A. Peffor, who was elected to tho
United States Senate from Kansas to succeed
Senator Walls. Tha title is Tim Farmkr's
Side, and this indicates the purpose of the work
In the earlier chapters, Senator I'cffor de
scribes the condition of the farmer in varv us
parts of the country, and compares it with the
condition of men in other callings. lie carefully
examines the cost of labor, of living, the prices
of crops, taxes, mortgapres, and rates of interest.
lie gives elaborate tables showing the increase
of wealth in railroads, manufactures, banking,
and other forms of business, and he compares
this with the earnings of the farmer, and ulso
wago-workcrs in general. In s clear, forcible
style, with abundant citations of facts and fig
ures, the author tells how the farmer reached
his present unsatisfactory condition. Then fol
lows an elaborate discussion of " Tho Way out,"
which is the fullest and most authoritative pres
entation of the aims and views ef the Farmers'
Alliance that has been published, including lull
discussions of the currency, the questions of
interest and mortgages, railroads, the sale of
crops, and other matters of vital consequence.
This book is tho only one which attempts to
cover tho whole ground, and it is unnecessary
