crossing was not mado without a

Idea struck him that possibly Col.
Ferguson might bo his father, and
after n long talk with the prisoners,
In which porsonal description, habltH,

Petticoats of Silk Gowns.
Silk Gowns for Petticoats.
Old silk gowns may bo utilized for
pottlcoats. The petticoat Is to-day a
very Important part of tho costume.
The stunt test gown may bo spoiled
by an Ill-fitting petticoat. Tho best
fitting Is mado with tho habit back
and an opening nt tho side. It has a
broad circular flounco and Is trimmed
with ruffles or lace or silk and chiffon.
Pleated flounces are alwayH In fash
Ion, but If mnde with taffeta do not
wear as well as tho gathered ones.
White muslin skirts with embrold
ered or laco rufTlcs arc very fashion
able. Tho fad of the day Is to wear
petticoats of tho finest lawn and laco
flocks Instead of a Bilk Bklrt.
A serviceable skirt Is of dotted
Swiss, with a tuillo or flounco
trimmed with rows of lnca put on
over a deep flounce of tafTeta, so that
It can bo taken off and washed.
To malts, chicken salad after an
Englishwoman's rule, a plump, nlcoly
boiled chicken Is required. Cut off
tho choice poitlons of the meat, and
set them aside. Fill a border or ring
mold with tomato asple jelly (mado
by adding strained tomato pulp to tho
a3pic), decorating the sides with fan
cifully cut bits of torunto. When sot,
unmold and fill the center with shrod
i.ed celery and the best portion of tho
chicken cut In cubes. Chop and
pound the Inferior portion of tho
chicken with two tnblcspoonfuls of
blnnched almonds or of pfne nuts. Add
to them an ounce of bread crumbs,
season with pepper and salt, und mois
ten with two eggs. Decorate somo
little butteied shell this with bits of
trutllo. and press tho mixture into
them. Poach nnnrlv Inir n,. 1, ,-,,.,.

Tailor-Made Gown of Cheviot.
What is more fetching than a wo
man of perfect figure and distin
guished bearing clnd In a severely
plain tallor-mailo gown? Tho very fact
thnt these gowns nro moro raroly soon
than formerly gives them a greater
distinction of appearance. As they de
pend entirely upon cut, mntorial and
finish for offect, everything for such
a gown must bo carefully chosen nnd
of the host quality. Tl suit Illus
trated was of chovlot of a very light
f ' ' e'f Y n
grey, tho gored skirt being of tho
most approved cut, close flttlu; In tho
uppor portion, fl-rlng below tno knees,
nnd finished morely by several rows
of stitching of Cortlcelll silk In self
color, Tho slnglo breasted close fit
ting body coat had a tiny added
basque, mounted at tho sides with
a curving hip seam. The cont collar
and Blcevo finish hardly to bo called
cuttt, showed a novel touch in a fac
ing of smooth finished cloth exactly
matching tho cheviot and pierced In
a Persian pattern, this being overlaid
upon figured panno In very brilliant
colorings, tho touch of color giving
tho gown an Individuality all Its own.
Two-Piece Gown with Princess Effect.
For slender women, gowns of voile,
canvas, and foulard aro mado up with
various kinds. Wo illustrate a frock
with tho fullness at tho sides nnd
back arranged in side pleats, forming
a panel cfTect In front, nnd a box
pleat at tho back. The lower portion

duced In various ways, whether by
shlrrlngs. shirred tucks, or pleats ol
over tho hips, Is finished at tho bot
tom with flvo double folds, or shaped
nifties, headed by medallions of yel
low Irish laco around which twlno
ruches of green taffeta. The plaited
bodice Is elaborately trimmed with
the lace and niching, nnd opens over
n full front of whlto mousellno do
nolo, with Jnhot of the same Incrusted
with tho yellow Irish laco.
of each pleat Is ornamented with nn
elaborate applique of whlto cloth,

tho matoiinl of tho frock being bis
cult colored canvas Upon tho uppor
part of each pleat Is stitched a strap
of taffetas of a peculiarly soft shado
of blue, tho stitching of this being In
biscuit colored Cortlcelll sowing silk.
True to the ono piece Idea, by which
so many two pleco gowns carry out
tho Princess style, tho samo trimming
Is carried up on tho bloused basque,
only tho order hero Is rovorsed, tho
whlto cloth appllquo forming tho yoko,
and tho stitched straps tho lower por
tion of tho blouse, ns well ns tho
basque. A great Louis XV knot of
pnlo bluo panno is placed at tho loft
sldo of tho vest, which Is overlaid
with tho whlto cloth applique.

Get three pieces of wire nbout

brass. Lay them on top oi a pall so
that one end of each Is In the flame

wire will be the first to get heated
all through, the brass second and the
Iron last, which shows their relative

other twelve Inches. You will Und
that the marbles nearer the flame will

Hudy Uurdltt. Hue, Texas, Is a 1G-year-old
trader. Two years ago ho
picked cotton In spare hours, and with
the money earned ho clothed himself
and saved three dollars. With this
three dollars he bought a pig. kept her
for some time and sold her for eleven
dollars. He worked on holidays and
Saturdays and saved four dollars,
which, added to tho eleven dollars,
gavo him enough to buy a Jersey
heifer. In a year ho sold her and a
calf for forty dollars. He then bought
a four months' old colt for flvo dollars
and sold her later for fifteen dollars.
He now has lltty-flve dollars loaned at
10 per cent interest.
A Trick With Fire.
To perform tho trick It Ib merely
necessary to dip the handkerchief In
water, wring It out but not too dry
saturate It with alcohol and apply a
lighted match to It.
The spirit will burn freely but tho
wet bnndkerchlef will not Ignite.
A Very Hot River.
At ono point In tho Yellowstone, a
stream of clear, cold water flows
through tho park, receiving In Its
course tho scnlillng hot water of ono
of tho numerous boiling springs of
that region. Tho boiling water, as It
reaches the cold stream, flows, for a
consldorublo distance, along ono bank,
beforo tho wntors finally mlnglo and
becomo ono In temporature.
Into this spring of boiling wnter,
Insects, bugs, toads, grasshoppers and
tho llko aro continually dropping, ana
thus losing their lives, and all such
Insects nro, as a matter of course,
swept Into tho cold water stream.
Now In tho cold water of this stream
a number of hungry trout aro contln
uajly skirmishing nlong tho edge of
tho hot wnter, taking good enro not
to venture too closo, for tho purposo
of snapping up and dovourlng tho In
sects brought down by tho hot water,
, ' I I '
and which happen to float (Sr Into
the cold water, or near enough tho
border for the trout to pick them up
so that It Is possible for a fisherman
sitting on tho bnnk to catch a trout
with hook and lino, draw him two feet
from where ho took tho hook, and boll
him good nnd done, all In tho same -stream
and without ever lifting tho "
fish from the water. Tho flshormnn
would, of course, have to havo a
scoop not to remove tho boiled trout
from the water, for othorwlso tho
head would pull off, leaving tho body
In tho water. But, barring this, It Is
within bounds of truth for ono to sny
that tho Yellowstone Is tho only plneo
on earth whore It Is possible to catch
and cook a fish In the snmo Btroam.

The Jumping Cards.
Take three cards from a pack, let
somebody look at them, and then mix
them well together with tho rest of
the cards. Hold tho pack at arm's
length and tho three cards will jump
high out of the pack.
Let tho audience examine the cards
as well as tho entlro pack to seo If
thoy havo been prepared. y.
Tho preparation consists of a nar
row rubber band of great elasticity
which tho performer slips over a part
of tho pack, as shown In I. To hide
tho rubber bnnd n few cards aro
placed In front and back of them.
When tho three cards arc placed on
tho rubbor band (seo II.) tho perform
er will have to press tho pack to
gether to prevent tho cards from'
Jumping out premnturoly.
As soon as the pressure Is relieved
tho cardB will Jump out. Whllo tho
audlenco examines the throe cards,
the performer slips tho rubbor band
from tho cards, and Is able to hand
the pack to tho audlenco for examination.
