It extended even to tier wedding ring,
was a broad, heavy, oval-topped ring,
the fashions rhunged and a new width
or shape came Into favor, aays the
New York Herald. When It was first
placed upon her flngur the ring waa
a bnuid, heavy, over-lopped ring, with
rather sharp edges. That poor little
circle hna gore through the fire
enough times to change It Into a flat
ring with hijiiiik edges, Into a per

Idea that any one will ImtUt upon

and expresses great disgust with any
woman who allows herself to be out

another woman who bad romantic

never allowed It to be removed from
her finger since It was placed there
by her hoshnnd during the marriage
ceremony, considering It a sacred em

for a moment. The frivolous woman,
however, Is not utterly devoid of tha
proper sentiment about thla Important
ring, or she would put It away In her
jewel casket and buy a new wedding
ring with each new style. It would
cost less money than to have the old
one done over.

Did you ever see a froxen breexet
You might have aeen one If you had
gone with me Into the .country on a
recent winter morning. This was the
way It came to be frozen. All night
long the air had been laden with mist.
Over the flelda, In the hollowa, all
through the woods, even on top of the
hllla, the fog hung heavily. All that
time the wind blew Bteadlly, but not
fiercely, from aome northern quarter.
At nightfall the mercury fell below
the freezing point, so that thla mlat,
as It drifted through the trees, was
frozen upon their branches and twigs.
The elms, the oaks, and the other
lenfleaa trees took their Ice-coating
quite evenly; but the thick, Impene
trable mnaes of the needles of the pine
trees were covered noticeably only up
on the aides toward the north or north
west, from which the wind came. Tho
strong, steady breeze bent the branches
to leeward, while It waa Icing them;
and when the wind went down In trie
morning they all remained just there,
leaning to the southward, Iced and
frozen to Immovability, but looking
Just as If the wind were atlll steadily
blowing. Even In the afternoon, when
the rain begou to fall, and the wind
came from quite another quarter, that
