MADE SOLDIER FORGET FEAR
Foraged Hen Laid an Egg In Piper'
Pocket While on Forced March
Pullet Wat Quite Angry.
.... (,'rimi Youth's Cotnpnnlon
If mi old soldier should tell me.'
rcninrked tho veteran, "that ho wasn't
nervous before his first battle, I sup
poso I should hnvo to believe him, but
should regard him as a freak of na
ture. There aren't many who could
sny as much. I know I wns scared
through and through, and besides that,
I was scared for fenr somebody clso
would find It out. I was nineteen, nnd
I've often thought that If It hadn't
been for a little thing that happened
to tllstrnct my mind while we wero
on tho march, my legs never would
have carried mo to tho front, but In
quite tho other direction.
"We were In camp, and Just petting
ready to have our dinner, when ordcni
camo for us to hurry forward and Join
a brigade that was likely to engngo
tho enemy at uny minute. So we had
to gobble down a cold snack and start.
Having my first battle loom up before
riie midden like that, I couldn't eat
much of nnythlng, and not having had
a civilized meal, I didn't hnvo much
stomach for fighting. At first I was
looking round for a haystack to scoot
for and hide In, but after a time I be
gan to get Interested In the lefthand
.overcoat pocket of the man In front of
me, a chap named Piper.
"It looked to mo as If there wap
something very much alive In that
pocket. Every now and then Piper
would" clap his hand over It, as If ho
was afraid the critter would get out,
and I could hear stifled noises from
the depths of the pocket that mado
mo suspicious. The lieutenant heard
them, too, for twlco ho turned round
and looked flerco enough to ent us.
"By and by, when Piper was off IiIh
guard, tho thing poked Us head out
tfar enough to Bcreech, 'Cut! cu !'
Piper ho squelched tho second 'cut
out It In two, you might say; but tho
lieutenant .heard something, and ho
looked round and shouted: 'Silence
in the ranks there!'
"Tho men near Piper snickered, tut
nothing more happened till tho order
camo down tho lino to shift our guns
to tho right shoulder. Then, of
roiirse, Piper had to uso both handq,
and tho minute ho let go of his pocket
out scrnmbold as mad a pullet as you
ever saw; and when she'd flopped
onto the ground sho scurried away,
screeching, 'Cut! cut! cah-dah-cut!''at
the top of her lungs. Well, the cap
tain couldn't help hearing that, and
naturally ho looked back to seo what
tho row was, and when he saw what
had happened he sung out at the top
of his voice:
"Corporal Davis, take three men
nnd bring back that deserter!'
"That made everybody feel middling
cheerful, but thoso who know where
tho chicken hnd come from got a real
good Inugh when Piper put his hand
Into his pocket and pulled out a new
"Honestly, I forgot all about being
nfrald after that."
Big Enough Hog for Him.
To a curloslty-seeker, who desirei
a permit to pass tho lines tovisit tin
field of Bull Run after tho first battlo
Lincoln made tho following reply:
"A man In Cortland county raised
,n porker of such unusual slzo that
.strangers went out of their way to see
It. One of thorn mot tho old gentle
tman, and Inquired about tho animal.
" 'Wall. yeB,' tho old fellow said,
I've got such a critter, ml'ty big 'un;
,but I guess I'll hnvo to charge you
about a shlllln' for lookln' at 'Im.'
"Tho stranger looked at tho old
man for a minute or so, handed him
toe money, and started to go. 'Hoi'
on,' said tho other. 'Don't you want
( to seo the hog?'
"'No,' said tho stranger; 'I have
peen as big a hog as I want to seo.' '
"And you will find that fact the
(case with yourself, If you should hap
pen to seo a few live robels there as
well as dead ones."

IF you wish to busy yourself pre
paring for the coming spring and
summer, you can be assured of tho
success of certain now styles in ad
vance. It Is wise to be ready for the
season which lures us out of doors,
and to make tho most of it.
Here Is tho sweetest of summer
gownB, made of silk muslin and laco
with a fichu nnd a belt of satin rib
bon. Similar gownB are on display
made of a variety of materlalB. There
are embroidered cotton crepes, first
of all. NetB, with flounces edged with
lace, embroidered crepe do chino and
voiles. Hut always lace and moro "laco.
Point d'esprlt net is found very use
ful and fine flowered voiles, lawns and
Among tho handsomest of gowns
aro those of white net showing flounc
ings of the net edged with narrow
black chantllly lace. Others of sheer
cotton cr.epe with fold of black mallne
laid under tho edge of flounclngs.
Much hand embroidery nppears on
the gowns of crepe, voile, etc. But
it is of a kind that does not try tho
eyes. Long sprays of flowers of mod
erate size like the carnation, for ex
ampleare done with heavy floss In
long bold stitches. The effect is beau
tiful. The gowns aro in whito or
pale colors. Whito is tho loveliest,
und the light colored undcrsllp with a
lacc-trlmmed petticoat of net worn
under these gowns Is beautiful.
It would be bard to find a simpler
or prettier model than that shown in
the picture, for a flounced gown. Tho
LACE AND RIBBONS
MARK THE STYLES
UNDER-MUSLINS in common with
other articles for women's wear,
have been growing more lacy, moro
bedecked with pretty finishing
touches, moro diaphanous, with 'every
season, until now, it seems, the limit
has been reached. Night dresseB are
made with yokes of flno net, having
lace inserted, or superposed. Or
they aro made with lace and flno em
broidery or all laco yokes. Pretty
washable ribbons are always a nec
essary part of their construction. Al
together the undergarments now on
display In the great stores havo all
been much Influenced by this liking
for airy fabrics and tho crazo for

aro cut with caBy llnea, to hang
gracefully, not to "fit" tho figure.

design, too, is appropriate to older
women, as well as to tho youthful
wearer. In fact, the dffrerenco in
flounced gowns for young or older
wearers is discernible In finishing
touches, rather than in design. Tho
foundation skirts aro plain nnd
straight. The flounces are adjusted
in differing poses. Sometimes, as in
the gown pictured, they sag toward
tho back, but in a good number this
Is reversed and they rise toward tho
The waist lino is about the normal
in most of them. While walots are
draped, theso are Bet in sleeves ob
well as drop shoulder and kimono ef
fects. Ribbons are conspicuous, and
tho "tango" shades, warm nasturtium
yenows, are specially liked.
Almost anyone who makes any pre
tentions to sewing, or has any fnlth
in her own ability, can put together a
flounced dress. Tho trick seems to bo
in adjusting the fiowors at tho right
slope, with even fullness, and In not
getting them too full.
Tho threo flounced skirt, having tho
flounces shaped, 1b displayed for heav
ier fabrics, and Is wonderfully attrac
tive. There is a world of light, airy fab- I
rlcs, fascinating in design, and a world i
of filmy laces, moderate in price, so '
that the flounced gown has a pleasant
future before it Limp fabrics are
chosen that fall to tho figure, so that
flounces do not mean bulkinesa. That
is tabooed, and Is likely to remain bo.

In tho midst of winter, when eve
nings aro long and days are most
comfortably spent in tho house, un
dorwear for tho doming summer
should be made up. In fact, tho bulk
of the summer sewing can be done
long before the clothes are needed.
Spring goods are on display in Jan
uary, and by tho first of February
Btyles for tho coming spring and sum
mer aro fairly well settled.
A night dress of cambric and Val
lace is shown in the picture.
The yoke and very short nienvpn
aro in one and made of Val in
sertions. Thero aro two patterns
or lace, the rows sewed togeth
er. The kimono Bleeve portion may
be lengthened by adding rows of
insertion. A narrow edging fin
ishes tho opening at tho neck, and
a wider edge In the same pattern fin
ishes tho sleeves.
Tbo rowB of lace may be "whipped"
together, that 1b, sewed edge to edge
with a short overcast stitch, or sewed
on tho machine. '
Tho yoke is Joined to tho skirt of
the gown by a narrow band of em
broidered beading. Through this a
ribbon Is run, which ties at tho front
in a Bmall bow. This ribbon serves
to adjust the gown to the flguro.
For such pretty night robes, Bepa
ratb bows and rosottes of ribbon are
provided. They aro to bo pinned on
with' very small safety pins, - Little
rosettes for tho top of tho Bleoves,
matching tho other rlbbonB, but
without hanging ends, may be added
by way of elaboration.
