A X you tall for tune?" she asked, lea nlug her elbows on the table awl shuffling the cards. "Some people's. Shall I try your mother's?" II e r mother was dozing iu tiie aruicbair by the fire. " O h , don't be fill v I Hum's fortune is told." "Poor mamma!" "Well, you know what I mean all tbar's worth telling. She refused the fair man and married the dark one; wasn't very rk-ii and wasn't very jmor qii'ie poor euou'iii!" She shrugged her shoulders aud made a dainty grisn accaias! uituauiable. "Had two tire some boys and one very nice girl voila mo:"' "Who was an incorrigible little flirt and ;ease." I suggested bitterly. "Fortunes dou't go into such detail about senxtmlary persons, even if they bap(ened to le true, which they aren't." "Oh, ye, they do." "SvDce you know so much about Jt. you can tell mine." She scattered the card toward nie with a crush. "It's all right, mum; I'm only throwing the card at Oousin Harry." Her mother gave a sleeky smile, atxl returned to her slumber. "You uitfstu't blame me if the card are unfavorable." "1 shaU know you've made It up If they are." "I wouldn't dream of JeMlng upon such a subject," 1 assured ber. "For-tnne-teUing follows certain essential principle, which are IntmuUible and " "Should be practiced, not preached. Go on." "To start with, then, you are the Queen of Hearts," Why?" ' "Because Uie Queen of Hearts repre sent feminine beauty and charm." "Ob!" she leaned back and laughed. "If you are only going to flatter me 1 won't listen." "I merely state a fact. You are the Queen of Hearts." "No, I'm not. I'm spade or clubts, be en uw I'm dark." "Excuse me, it Is not a matter merely f complexion, but of general appear ance. Spade represent plain peoiJe, , diamonds passable people, and heart very nice-looking people. Therefore you are the Queen, of Hearts." "Lota of people wouldn't consider me good-looking at all." Her tone invited contradiction. "Very likely not." She flashed an ia tpam at glance at me. "Hut the fortune teller la the sole Judge on these occa sions." "I'm glad toe fortuneteller ia so ap preciative. Of course, I know you're only pretending." She looked at me for denial, but I busied myself with the card. "Go on!" she cried. "I 'lint, I shuffle the cards so. Then I cut them so. Now I place my hand on them so. You place your band on top of mine." She did.

"The eardjt are wrou." "Perhaps they mean that you will do so." I stiffgestiHl, inquiringly; but slie twisied up her handkerchief and made no answer. , "The King of Diamonds, with spades foiiowiug, meiuis an ekh riy suitor w ho has prospered in tiade. He is shown by the diamonds, ending with the knave, to have made a fortune and re tired, handing over the business to his sou." I meant old Farsler. "I call it very utiUind of yu. Harry." Her lip dropped a iUiie, and 1 hastened to apologize. "It isn't my d'-in. it's the cards." "Well, you know it Ku't true.

"Don't you believe me?" Hbe looked quite hurt. "Of course if you say so." I patted her hand, which was lying on the ta ble, but s'je drew it sharply away aud rubbed the touch oft" with her handker chief. "Well? The King of Heart? What doe that mean?" 1 considered a moment. "The King of Heart!," I prououiv-ed slowly, "means a haadouje young fellow who mid you a great deal of atteuilion when you were staying with the Queen of Clubs, a dark relative probably your aunt." "I won't listen to another word!" ahe cried, indignantly. "It's a nasty, horrid fortnue, bjmI quile untrue. There!" "Very well." I made as if I would sweep the carda together. "Don't be disagreeable." She looked at me reproachfully, with one of ber kaleidoscopic change. "I want to hear it my proer fortune not non seme." "Well, in't this true?" "No, it Isn't." "Didn't he pay you a lot of atten tion r "Young Jeptwon?" "Yea." He was the rival I really feared." "Nothing special." "So many pay you attention that you think nothing of it" "You silly follow!" nald she, scorn fully. "Why, he's almost engaged to cousin Annie." I felt as though a w eight was taken off me. "Why," I said, "bow stupid of me! She must be the dark lady, I suppose. I ougt to have connected bim with her instead of with you." "I don't believe you understand the fortune business a bit." "It's very difncult," I ajwlogized. "But you see the cards are ail right, when yon read them properly." "What else do tbey say?" "The next point i money. The seven of diamond, next to the knave of cliU la-obably your uncle indicate a legacy: and " "No, no!" she interrupted. "I don't want to know about money." "Well, the duration of life Is shown by " "That doemi't matter," said she quickly, shrugging her shoulders. "Then I hardly know what else there is to tell." I looked at her doubt fully. There was one thing only that I wanted to fell her. "What do you want to know, M illy 7" Site put her elbow on the table and rested her head ou her hand. Then she laughed ntn-imily, and I heid my breath for a moment. "Isn't there I mean did you finish wit It the the admirers, as you call them?"

"The nine of spades, on t he other haitd of the king, shown thai he lias a great deal more work to do bet. -re he can Is- In a position to ask the knave of hearts-her fattier for her baud. Meanwhile the eight of spade and the ace of clubs show t hat he must toil at some risk in a laud across the sea." She clasped her hand suddenly and looked up. "oti. no. no!" she cried. "Yes," 1 said quietly aw! sadly. "Where?" Her dainty mouth was quivering.. "The cards do not say. But it !s the Cape, I believe, where a relative has offered him a good berth." We looked at the cards in dismal sl leuee for a while. Then she smiled at me ever so brightly. "There is tlie ace of hearts at the end of the line, Henry," she whl-rei. "What doe tliat mean?" I took the hand near me gently In mine. "I think, Milly." I said earnest ly, "it must be my heart Ixvause It Is over by you. Will you have it. dear?"

GtrHtnU, That May H Worn Klther Id or Oat of loora, Art Made of Meal Delicately Colored Material and Elaborately Trimmed. CtHitarlan Garuirota. New York correspondence: OATS this spring pre seut many very unus ual characteristics. Ordinarily a sprlug coat suggests, say, a natty tailor made af fair in tan color, mode, blue or black, something gentleman ly and trig, for all it may tie distractlngly feminine. Such have had vogue for the past five years, but now a spring coat means, to fashion leaders. at least, something gay and fanciful that may be worn in the house without a iiat, almost as well as out of doors with headgear. The limit to which this newly placed fanclfulness has gone Is shown by to day's first pic ture. Just think of a smooth cloth af fair In hunting pink, fitting perfectly at back and sides ami moulded to the ' ' - " with imisliu frills shoivs at the opening in front. Think of this same lace show ing at the shoulders, where the "coat," instead of tak'nj. to Itself self respect ing shoulder seams, ties into a rosette GAUMENTS OK fOCBLE I'SE THAT on each shoulder for all the world like the finish to the Mrm strap of a ball gown. Other forms of the cont Itodice are grouped In tlie next sketch. The biaxer is suggested by three of thetn. In the first of these the fronts hung free from one button, which was set further down tban formerly, and which was at the end of revers that turned bock to about the bust line. Above the button, where the revers or collar turns away, the front and collar of the nnder bodice are supposed to how, though this front and collar may be a part of the coat, as can A SOBT XOT TKT DISPLACKI). be the flash that shows wbere tbe coat preads below tbe button. This coat was trimmed with fold braid, and It gray cloth was stashed here and there to show tbe orange silk lining. It bad tbe blazer pockets we used to find so jaunty and saucy, and will ba as com fortable and pretty aa aver. Not ao closely related to the bygone blazer was tha garment at the other end of this row, wblcb bat for Its permit ting a glimpse of something beneath at tbe opening, and for tt lot of Irrelevant frilling at the edges, might slmost lie v quiet little coat Aa It la, It la a good ff i 'W m i if jv 1 deal wore a fancy bodice than coat. tluuirh If worn with a linen collar showing above the turned back revers. and with a rstber severe hat.

The upper garment of thh pair was of this sort, and quite as much n bouse ltodh-e as a spring Jacket, but It was found among the spring Jacket novelties. It was nut brown cloth, lin ed with brown snd pink check taffeta, trimmed with pieatlngs of white taffeta and belted with brown velvet. The oth er blouse coat severe, except foi it one double rever, and was In Rus sian green cloth, lined with white and green satin. Its rever was white cloth, cord piping trimmed collar and basque, and a wide fold of green satin furnish ed Ita belt. The last of tivese modeil was as tight as the season's tailor mades, and would have recalled thi Jacket of former years but that Its rever collar was gaily frilled. Its fab ric waa scarlet cloth, the angles of col lar and revers had blHck braid orna mentation, and scarlet silk frilling bor dered the edges. The new fancy bodices are quite supe rior to tlie spring hodlce-couts. Tb reason for this Is their extreme delicacy and daintiness. The artist has contrlls uled two examples of the latest form of fancy Itodice In proof of this, two that were taken from a lot composed of de licious puffs of transparent stuff over dainty silk. The yokes of all, which In some form were In each case n part or tne design, and the bodices blended together perfectly and In a wonder of needlework. Narrow velvet usually black, ran between the puffs wltb charming effect, and the attractiveness of the puffing and shirring was surpris ing, ine first or these was violet gren adine over violet silk, black velvet be ing employed In the manner indicated. Chiffon or gauze treated In this way la almost universally becoming, being thus rendered aa softening to tha akin aa fur. Besides this, tha puffed or shir red gauce combine beautifully wltk the new figured taffetas that ar a da light of themselves. The second oi these bodices showed the result of tbl union, being made of figured green taf feta, plain green silk lining tha shirred portions, wblcb ware made of White gauxa.
