la at once fond of pretty clothes and
economical, has saved t lit? white silk
or white satin party dress that has
served Ita time, and utilizes It, after It
has been thoroughly cleaned, as a fouu

It looks so well. It might be that In

also be In good taste and make a very
effective background for the thin muIL
Instead of being plaited the mull skirt

silky lining In flue curves. Its trim
ming consists of three narrow flounces
carefully hemmed by hand, and head
ed by a quille, which is, in reality, u
trlplo Isix-plalt of very narrow pink
satin ribbon. Broad pink ribbon, that
which la known as the aush width,
makes the yoke; and the lower part of
the bodice, which Is of the mull, Is
fulled to It. This fullness Is evenly
laid on the yoke edge, but at the waist
It la drnwn to th center so that a point

The yoke Is overlaid with rather
coarse lace, white In color, and the col

edge of lace turned over on It an If It
were a specially-made rolling collar.

An old, gray-whiskered man, who
had lived all his life on a small farm
near Kafavlu, stopped at the hotel last
Tuesday evening. He said he wanted
a room for one night. He was sent up
to the third floor. Later In the even

till midnight. He had evidently been
enjoying himself. His breath smelled
of whisky. lie went up to his room,
and that whb the last seen of him until
early lu the morning, when a Isiy went
to call him for his train. The Isiy got
no answer when he knocked on the
door, and he opened It and walked In.
The folding-bed had not been let down.
The boy had to look about for n mo

old man. Then he hoard a husky voice
from up near the ceiling somewhere.
He looked up, and there was the guest

his eyes. lie was fully dressed, with
the exception of his big, cowhide ImjoI.s,
which were standing on the floor.

One of tlie most interesting novelties
In horticulture Is the art of retarding
the blooming season of flowers. The
London Times refers to a florist's es
tablishment where the crowns of lilies
are placed In an Icehouse to hibernate
several months and are then brought
iuto bloom between the end of sum
mer and Christmas. All plants will
not tolerate this treatment, but those
which are hardy an; not Injured by it
as a rule. The method Is found to work
widl with the lily of the valley, Much,
spiraeas, deutzlns and Client azaleas.

now be made to bloom. the year round.
