UST because the
summer has been
such a disapioint
ment to the women
who took trunks
full of muslins to
the drizzly resorts,
she Is highly pleas
ed to turn her
thoughts to fall
dresses, and seems
likely to go In heav
ily for wools and
"plain things." But
a word in your ear;
those trunks of
muslins are bound
to come out somewhere. Not everyone
Is rich enough and bad tempered
enough to throw the pretty things away
because they could not be worn In July,
and this means that muslins are sure to
appear for the simpler dances and "af
fairs" of this fall and winter, Instead
AN UNUSUAL VARIETY
of the usual crop of tulles, silks and
chiffons. This is a valuable bint, be
cause exquisite muslins are being sold
for almost nothing now, all because the
failure of the legitimate season for
them has overstocked the dealers. It
will be worth while to make up muslins
now for afternoon and informal even
ing use; they are sure to le used all
winter. The shopkeepers know this
perfectly well, still they must clear
their counters, and imported muslins
are selling for songs. If you can sing,
better go in for one. A lovely gown
bought for one-half what it would have
cost three months aj;o was made over
apple gTeen silk, the muslin being yel
low traced with tiny lines of green and
gray. There were deep insertions of
dark yellow lace and collar, cuffs and
belt of turquoise. The woman who
bought it Is going to change collar, licit
and cuffs, and use doul le faced ribbon,
cerise and black, and then she will
wear the dress with a "brought it over
with me" air. A like opportunity is
open to almost even-one.
These weeks of drizzle and chill are
responsible, too. for an early showing In

sorter of a curious mixture of summer
and fall styles. Turning to the two
costumes at the left In the second Illus

and with the other two of the group Is

skirt of white serge and waist of Kr

white broadcloth gav the upllqned
scroll edge aud lining for the high col

The ornamentation of thin last dress
was distinctly summery, but the cos
tumes of the two standing figures were'
murked as for the warm season by all
their details. The first -had a founda
tion of violet taffeta, over whirh, in
the skirt, were three ruffles of violet
mousseline embroidered with aplique'd
white net divided by fluffy pinked frills
of the silk. The belt was twisted silk
and chiffon, and the waist was covered
with the mousseline and had laee bre
telles aud collar to match. Hiding this
was a rich lace cape, merely a flounce
with deep scallops that were filled in
with mousseline aud dotted with violet
rlblioa lows. Scarlet silk lined ecru
linen in the last of this quartet. A gath
ered frill of ecru chiffon edged the
jacket fronts, coffee-colored taffeta cov
ered with narrow ruffles of the same
shade of mousseline gave the plastron,
and the skirt had a panel of coffee-colored
chiffon dotted with scarlet bows
and silver buckles. Another glint of
scarlet came at the throat, whose fluffy
chiffon collar had a large bow of silk
In that bright shade.
Linen has had tremendous favor this
season, and the end of summer will find
the newest dresses of It made In the
most elaborate fashion. The first dress
of the next group is a sample of this,
mouse gray linen being the goods. Its
finely pleated skirt was sewed to a.

ruffles. Cream satin and lace were em
ployed In the waist yoke and revers.
If August doesn't bring a chance for
wearing such dresses as the one sketch

will almost excuse a woman wearing
her lawn dress out in the rain. This
gown was white lawn figured with pink

and insertion and edging of Valenci

With all the outdoor uncertainties
that have held In the past two months,
it is but natural that indoor dresses
should have had more than their usual
share of attention. With fine outdoor
gowns In hand that had hud little wear,
it would seem reasonable to expect an
abundance of simple and Inexpensive
gowns for Indoors, but such hasn't been
the result, at least with women Mho
have a good deal to spend for dress.
Held in the summer home or hotel
much of the time, the field of rivalry
has simply changed, and the competi
tion in finery has pone on under the
roof. In ceremonious costumes it has
.been especially sharp, and beautiful
.dresses of exceeding richness hare re

Wetgbtaa: mn Elephant.
An Indian writer relates an Interest,
las aasvoote concerning "hahjee, tbe
father of the first rullnj prince of Mah
run us of Hludustao. who lived at
about the beginning of the seventeenth
century. On one occasion a certain
high official made a vow that be would
distribute to the poor the weight of his
own elephant In sliver money, but the
great difficulty that at first presented
Itaelf waa the mode of ascertaining
vhat thJs weight really was, and all
tt learned and clever men of the court
seem have endeavored In vain to
construct a machine of sufficient power
to weigh the elephant. At length It Is
said that Shahjee came forward and
suggested a plan which M simple and
yet Ingenious in the highest degree. He
caused the unwieldy animal to be con
ducted along a stage, eApcclally made
for the purpe by the waterside. Into
a flat Iottoin boat, and then, having
marked on tbe lioat the height to which
the water reached after the elephant
had weighed It down, the latter was
taken out, and stones were substituted
In sufficient quantity to load the boat
to the same Hue. The stones were then
taken to the scales, and thus, to the
amazement of the court, wag ascer
tained the true weight of the elephant.

Mon'a Speech to Brute.
The story of the farmer In the "Ara
bian Nights" who could understand
the language of the animals ami fowls
lu his barn yard probably had Its ori
gin in the ancient myth which asserted
that in primitive times men and beasts
were able to converse together. In
truth, ns everylsidy knows, there are
certain sounds, or words, which horses,
dogs nud other animals can be taught
to understand; and, on the other hand,
some of the sounds uttered by domes
tic animals have a meaning which man
can understand. Of course all this Is
quite a different thing from language,
and yet It has a certain scientific In
terest. Recently Dr. If, C. Holton has
discussed "the Ian gunge uiwd In talk
ing to domestic animals." He shows
how we unconsciously attempt to low
er our language by abbreviations, etc.,
to the comprehension of brutes, very
much aa when we talk to young chil
dren. A curloua fact Is that the pecu
liar "click" and "chirp" used to Wart
and to hasten the movements of horses
are employed In very widely separated
(arts of tbe world, but sometimes In
a reversed sense. In India, for In
stance, those sounds are used lo stop
Instead of to start horse.
