When Chumpsky left home and Mrs.
Chumpsky that evening, it was with
the avowed intention of attending a
“lodge meeting."
"Don’t sit up for me, Agnes." he had
said. “It may be rather late when I
return. We are to elect our officers
for the coming year, you know."
As a matter of fact. Mrs. Chumpsky
did not know, but, like a good wife,
she promised obedience to her lord
and master. So. with a feeling of se
curity pulsing in his breast. (Agnes
was usually a sound sleeper) Chump
sky made his way, not to the lodge,
but to the rooms of a certain Mr. Black
well. from whence, a full hour later,
the two of them issued, clad in green
dominoes and masks. A carriage bore
them rapidly to the hall where the
great masquerade ball was soon to
break forth in ail its gaiety and splen
“Nothing else helps a man like tak
ing a night off occasionally,” Chump
sky explained, addressing his own
conscience as w'ell as Mr. Blackwell.
“Of course, with women it is different.
They are satisfied to stay at home.
They never feel any of that restless
ness. that desire for a little innocent
excitement without which man can
not exist."
To this Mr. Blackwell murmured a
ready assent, and Chumpsky's con
science chimed in.
The ball was indeed a gorgeous af
fair. Conscious of the security of their
disguises and carried away by the gay
spirit of the occasion, formality was
thrown to the winds. Men and women
danced with whom they pleased.
For a while Chumpsky stood back
and watched the revelers swing* and
sway across the polished floor. In
their gay abandon there was some
thing fascinating. For a whole ybar.
ever since his marriage, home and
Mrs. Chumpsky bad taken up his
every thought. But as far as the pen
dulum swings to the right so far will
it return to the left. Chumpsky felt
himself swinging back. An uncon
trollable desire to dance, to be one
of the mad throng, seized on him.
Just as he turned to cast his eyes
about for a partner, a couple swayed
by. He could not help but notice
them, so gracefully they glided over
the floor. Every turn, wrapped the
long domino around the woman’s form,
fascinating Chumpsky’s eyes. Three
times while he stood there gazing,
spellbound, she circled by. The fourth
time they stopped almost in front
of him, scarcely two feet away. He
heard her murmur something about
cn ice, and the man bowed and glided
off. That was Chumpsky’s opportun
ity. He took advantage of it. What
he said he ne^er knew; but, divine
sensation, there* he was gliding across
the floor, one of his arms about her
waist, one of his hands clasping hers,
warm and soft.
It was true that Chumpsky was
born susceptible to feminine charms,
but even if his blood had been colder
than the coldest, It would have thaw
ed into warm living wine when he felt
the glow from her shoulder, pressing
against his breast, steal slowly, yet
irresistibly, over his whole being.
- May be it was the wine be had
drunk before leaving Blackwell’s
room, may be it was the spirit of the
occasion, may be it was the rich,
heavy odor of roses that wafted up to
his nostrils every time the long black
domino swing and clasped itself
around the superb creature he held in
In a state of semi-heavenly rapture.

sky was intoxicated with a divine in
toxication. And from the fullness of
bis heart his lips spoke. Heavenly sen
sation! He felt her shoulder press
closer to his. and her fingers tighten
their claSP
Even when the music stopped, and
they promenaded the long hall or sat
In the shelter of fern and palm,
Chumpsky dwelt in a state of semi
heavenly rapture. With each breath
he drank in the rich, heavy perfume

right hand Just for one glimpse at the
face so well concealed by a mask
which not only hid her features but
even her hair, and prevented her voice
from reaching him except In the low
est, sweetest murmur Chumpsky had
ever heard.
The evening passed. Couple by cou
ple the dancers deserted the floor. It
was with a feeling of barbaric rage
that Chumpsky saw the tall cheval
ier, her first partner, coming toward
“When shall I see you again?"
Chumpsky panted in his eagerness to
finish before the man arrived.
“•—I rather overtaxed myself at the
lodge—lodge election.”
“To-morrow.” So well did the mask
hide even the voice he could just
catch the word.
“How shall I know you?”
She caught up a fold of her skirt
and swayed it gently. Again the rich,
heavy perfume of roses billowed up
to his nostrils.
“But where? When? At what
place?” Chumpsky gasped.
Before she could answer the man
was at her side. W’ith a low bow he
offered his arm. And when Chump
sky, dazed, stumbled to his feet, it was
to feel Blackwell's hand upon his
shoulder and to hear that gentleman
saying in his suavest accents:
“Been looking for you everywhere,
old boy.” Then as he caught Chump
sky’s eye on the couple disappearing
from the hall. “Quite swell, old fel
low. Saw you with her all evening.”
Chumpsky murmured something
that sounded like an invitation for
Blackwell to descend to the regions of
darkness. Then he followed sulkily
into the cloak room.
All the way to Blackwell's room
Chumpsky’s mind ran on the woman
in the black domino, and the “night
cap” he took there only made it whirl
and dance the faster.
When he reached his own house all
was dark except for a light burning in
the hall. This Chumpsky turned out
and, lighting a match, climbed softly
up the stairs. He opened the bedroom
door and stepped in. To his credit
let it be said that Chumpsky staggered
back only two paces. The air in the
room was heavy with the rich perfume
of roses.
“Is that you, dear?” came Mrs.
Chumpsky’a voice sweetly from the
Chumpsky weakly acknowledged
that it was. Then he sat dovn in a
chair, as if exhausted.
“This perfume, Agnes,” he stammer
ed “it—smells like roses—where—
where did it come from? It’s so op
pressive—and I—I rather overtaxed
myself at the lodge—lodge election."
“Perfume, dear? Why, yes; isn’t it
delicious? Cousin George brought it
all the way from France to me. If
you hadn’t been so Impatient to get off
to that old lodge, you would have
met him. You had scarcely left the
house when he came. And—oh, he
has grown into such a handsome man,
so tall. He wanted me to go round
with him to look on at the big mas
querade ball. Said It would be a gor
geous sight. But of course I couldn’t
go unless you went, you know.”
Chumpsky thought that he heard a
titter somewhere in the room. But,
like a wise man, he kept his thoughts
to himself, and went to bed without
asking any more impertinent ques
tions. And it was the “love of a bon
net” that Mr. Chumpsky generously
paid for the next day.
Secretary Morton’s Paradise.
One of Secretary Morton’s old rail
road friends asked him if he would
not rather be at the head of some de
partment where he would be more fa
miliar with the work than he is with
the Navy department.
“Not much,” he replied. “I’d rather
be right here, where I can be on deck
all of the time, even though X w»
times may be at sea.”
Wh? Col. Billups' Companion Was Not
Unduly Interested.
Happening to have a few moments
to himself Col. John Billups of Ari
zona decided to take a street car ride,
and see the various beauties of the
capital, says a dispatch from Wash
He entered a car, took a seat, and
devoted himself to looking at the
places of historical Interest he passed.
Coming to an uninteresting stretch he
looked around the car and discovered
a very beautiful woman sitting in a
seat with an ill-favored man. Directly
behind the woman sat another man,
looking intently out of the window.
Col. Billups was attracted by the
beautiful woman just as any Southern
gentleman is attracted by a great pic
ture or a fine horse. He looked at her
in open mouthed admiration, paying
the tribute the real Southern gentle
man pays to beautiful women wher
ever found.
Suddenly, to the great amazement
of Col. Billups, the lady turned and
winked roguishly at the man behind
her. It was a full-sized, enticing wink.
The man looked out of the window
without noticing. Col. Billups
watched. Three times the lady turned
and winked at the stolid citizen be
hind her, and three times the man re
fused to notice the advance.
This was too much for Col. Billups.
He moved across to the seat where
the man was sitting. They rode for
a square, and the lady turned again
and winked.
“Sir,” said Col. Billups to the man
looking out the window, “it is a beau
tiful winter’s day.”
“It is.” he replied, still gazing out
on the street.
“Sir,” said Col. Billups, “have you
remarked that extremely beautiful
lady who sits in the seat directly in
front of us?"
“She’s good looking enough,” re
plied the stolid one, still looking out
of the window.
“Sir, said Col. John Billups, “I am
a Southern man and an admirer of all
that is beautiful in nature. I say to
you that that lady is fair game. That
man with her is not her husband.”
“I know it,” replied the person who
was gazing out of the window. “I
Seemed Barred from Everywhere.
“Look here,” said Senator Crane of
Massachusetts to Senator Knox of
Pennsylvania. “Let's go and get
something to eat.”
They are new members and they de
cided to flock together. They went
to the Senate restaurant. The head
waiter, usually quick on the trigger as
to new senators, did not recognize
them, and gave them seats in the
room given over to the common peo
Knox and Crane sat down. Looking
through the doors they saw many of
their colleagues feasting in state in
the inner room. They tried to get a
waiter, but none came at their call.
Finally a newspaper reporter who
knew them both came by.
‘'Say,” he said, “you do not eat
“Great Scott!” said Knox, “can't we
get anything to eat anywhere?”
Two Forma of Sutures.
There are two forms of sutures for
drawing the edges of wounds togeth
er. They are the interrupted and con
tinuous. The former is employed
when only one or two stitches are
used; the latter when the wound has
to be regularly sewed, like a seam.
By the continuous suture with each
stitch, which is independently fast
ened, if the thread should break in
one stitch the wound would be held.
An irregularity of seam is often seen
in the continuous suture owing to the
Tact that, although the needle has
passed at right angles to the incision
at each stitch, there is an oblique
pull upon the lips of the wound when
the suture is finished. This is avoid
ed by passing the needle after each
stitch through the lop of the preced
ing one, thus making a sort of con
tinuous chain called the “Glover su
ture,” and making each stitch partly
independent of the rest.

Youngster’s Keen Rebuke.
It was at Newport, where gossip is
rife and too often repeated before
children, that little Johnny, aged five,
showed his early appreciation of the
meanness of tattling. The mother
of his chum had died, and the same
night when his mother put him to bed
he cried. On his mother anxiously
inquiring as to the cause of his tears,
he said he was weaping for his chum’s
“But you mustn’t cry for her,” she
said. “Arthur’s mother is quite happy
now; her soul has gone to heaven.”
Looking up in astonishment, he
“What! buried already?”
“Oh, no,” replied the mother, “her
body is here, but her soul has gone up
to Qod.” )

was all sufficient for milady to carry

that she has the very latest fad in

tained in fans. They are either ex
quisitely small or grotesquely large.
The small ones come in all sorts of
fanciful empire designs. The large

dles of gold, studded with gems.
A Pink Crepe Tea Gown.
Another idea for a tea gown came
to my mind, of pink crepe, long and
- - -1
clinging, bordered with fur and em
broidered or painted down each side
in pink roses and blue bowknots. The
little bolero is in velvet a shade
deeper, and edged with fur and plait

chiffon form the sleeves—New York
The New Bodices.
A notable feature of the new bodice
Is the long, straight boned and point
ed effect in the front. There is no
longer the loose blousing effect, as the
bodice is very much boned at the
waist line and boned girdles, with the
shirting and fullness going in exactly
the opposite direction from those
lately so fashionable. Velvets, velve
teens and corduroys are quite as
much in evidence, and are employed
to construct afternoon frocks. In fact,
at present there is a costume for
every one of these fabrics in the ward
robe of all up-to-date women. Cor
duroy naturally is more durable than
either velvet or velveteen, and it is
much used for walking costumes.
Both long and short coats are fash
ionable, but the short coats are con
sidered a little newer, and they are
very much more comfortable.
Spangles Made in Pendants.
The new spangle is the pear-shaped,
although the oval, round, square, tri
angular, or other forms are shown.
All of the new pendant spangles have
fine wire passed through the top, so
that the spangle may move freely, in
stead of being sewed to the garment
through a hole at its top. The glit
tering, and also the graceful, effect of
these pendants is, therefore, increased
The light colored spangles reign be
cause fashion’s fancy in gowns for
evening wear runs to light and white
tints. These pendant spangles at
tached by wires are quite new, and
only those women who ordered gowns
quite late in Paris can now show them
in New York.
Season of Ribbons.
Almost every season is heralded as
a season of ribbons, and yet this one.
more than most, deserves the title.
Ribbons are used on every sort ol
gown, in every sort of way. All
widths find uses, from the tiny baby
width to the widest that the looms
produce. A pretty employment of
two-inch wide ribbon, though hardly a
novel one, is a twisted bow knot de
sign on the deep flounce of a lace
gown. The ribbon may be pinned on
according to fancy, and then the
dress turned wrong side out, and the
trimming tacked in place.

Effect of Veils on the Complexion.
Veils are credited with being hurt
ful to the complexion. The skin, it is
said, needs the friction of the air. and
constant covering prevents this, and
also the healthy action of the pores.
Then a veil heats the face, and being
covered with a greasy moisture the
dust and dirt stick and get into the
pores. Then the veil itself quickly
gets dirty and soils the skin. If the
face be left uncovered circulation is
stimulated, the skin is cooler and
dust is generally blown off without do
ing any damage.
Effective White Gown.
For simple white gowns to be got
ten up at small expense, some of the
Japanese raw silks are beautiful.
The fabrics are so attractive in
themselves that they need little trim
ming. A little lace is about all that
is necessary to make a charming
▲ pretty model in one of these soft
silks fcad a shirred skirt, with three
bands, simulating wide tucks. A line
of lace insertion divided these. The
waist was a surplice back and front,
the folds falling loosely over the
shoulders and bust.
There was a lace underbody, which
was so arranged that it could be decol
lete or not, as the wearer desired.
The collar and upper part of the yoke
were fastened invisibly to the lower
part of the underbody or guimpe, and
could be removed.

Ribbon embroidery is seen on some
of the latest evening dresses, and may
be easily worked on a foundation of
either silk or lace. Lace is best for
the tyro, both because the loose
mestes of the lace make the embroid
ering easier, and because if the lace
has a flower pattern, a beautiful ef
fect may be obtained by simply fol
lowing the outline of the pattern for
the embroidery design. The secret of
the beauty of the work lies in the
tactful choice of colors, and not many
shades should be used.
Again, ribbons are used as lacings,
as elaborate stock collars, as bindings,
j shirred ruffles, as meshes, and for the
omnipresent and ever beautiful wide
crush girdles.
White Fox Fur Popular.
The revived vogue of white fox fur
is one of the features of the season,
and a becoming fur it is, though sadly
ready to become grimy. It is especial
ly pretty for youthful w'earers, but
many of the older women—provided
they are not too old—appreciate the
fact that the flufTy fur is more becom
ing than the close piled ermine and
have taken up white fox and look un
commonly well in it.
Japanese silks are favorites.
Veils of black Chantilly are worn.
Hand painting is effective on the
leather belts.
There are silk and chiffon hoods for
evening wear.
The tricorne hat needs to be worn

Among the silver fancies is a small
decorated vase for bolding hatpins.

Unique Combination of Hues.
Pink and blue is a recent Parisian
combination of colors. But this must
be accomplished with delicate dis
crimination. A pretty example is a
gown of pale pink taffeta, made prin
cess with an overdress of pale blue,
very sheer chiffon. The chiffon skirt
is finished with three ruffles edged
and piped on with pink satin. The
bodice is out slightly low and is sur
pliced. The sleeves are elbow length,
with a ruffle of lace. A cluster of long
loops of inch-wide ribbon in pale blue
and pale pink finishes the surplice at
the left side. This simple model is
particularly effective in the color
French Evening Waist.
Bodice of pale blue louisine shirred
and draped, the shirrings covered with
silver soutache or galloon. The yoke
is of white lace, bordered with a
shaped band and ruffle of the silk, the
former ornamented with straps of the
silver soutache or braid, fastened with
silver buttons.
The collar is finished at the top
with a similarly trimmed band of the
silk. The puffed sleeves are shirred
and draped and finished with ruffles
of the silk and lace.
New Idea in Iriso Lace.
In the recent laces is a unique kind
known as French-Irish. It has the
beauty of the Irish crochet, treated
with delicate French taste. It is a
wonderful combination. The real
Irish lace has but few patterns, the
shamrock predominating. Irish cro
chet motifs—of conventional flowers
with heavy bolls bursting out from un
der half-dosed petals—show a pretty
effect of this double touch.
Calf’s Head.
To make a delicious hash, heat and
flavor delicately some of the stock
from a calf's head with mace, lemon
peel, herbs and vegetables, then strain
and thicken, adding mushroom, cat
sup, salt and cayenne pepper. Add
slices of a boiled calf's head, and al
low to wrarm through gradually, only
letting it come to a boil just before
being served. Garnish with fried
seasoning balls and curls of bacon.
White Net and Lace Dinner Drees.
A simple and dainty dinner dress is
in white net, with lace appliqued on
the flounce, and a broad black sash
drawn around the figure and knotted
at the left. The sleeves are of net
and lace, and a wired bowknot in the
hair completes this charmiiig gown,
which would become a woman of any

gray cloth with a lustrous surface. It
is trimmed with narrow bands of sa
ble, and wheels in crochet. The yoke
is in embroidery.

taffeta, finished with bertha and
flounces of pink chiffon, embroidered
in white silk. The center model, an
evening wrap, is of pale blue broad*
cloth, elaborately embroidered In pale
