which pass through their hands, and
young Peffer was no exception to the
rule. In thlB way ho accumulated con
siderable knowledge. When ho suc

was able to read a market report back
wards. And It is said that ho used to
read that way. A facetious writer has
remarked that that Is how he got It
Into his hend that tho world was pro
gressing backward. Anyway, by the
time he succeeded to the editorial chair
ho was firmly convinced that things
were upside down generally, and ho
succeeded in making other people agree
with him. He entered political life and
In a icmarkably short time found him

United ntntes when ho was a boy, and
settled In St. Paul, Ulnn. Ho went to
Paris In September, 1853, entered the
Petit Semlnalre of Mexlmeux, and fin

can't answer that any moro than you
can explain how such a fool has made
out to survive to his present age. Why
didn't he reach his deserved fate long
before? No one can say. Enough that
it does onertako him and ho gets from

it goes oach summer, and each summer
has its long string of drowning trage

wo said before, no ono summer docs it
up completely, so as to give civilization
a fresh chance. A lot of people are

ASHION Is not of
ten kind to tho pov

In her domain, but
this season Bhc has
made n decided
move In our favor
by smiling upon the
paca goWns. For
this material means
much to us. It has
that soft, shimmer
ing effect sought after these days
nnd Is very serviceable, also, since It
does not crush or wear rough. In fact,
It is an ideal material for ono who must
look well to tho wherewith she will be
clothed. If you wish a charming gown
get one of white alpaca, with perfectly
plain skirt and tight-fitting waist.
Have It made with a plain stock collar.
Have made also a Jacket as shown In
Ulustratlon.ot blue serge. The Jacket
is shorter than those worn last year
and Is godeted below the waist line. It
has peculiar square revers tho upper
ones of white alpaca which are slashed
and edged with braid. The hat worn
with this costume Is of rough blue
straw. Into the trimmings Is Intro
duced that combination of blue and
green which Is so fashionable. If, how
ever, you wish to wear the gown on a
dressy Indoor occasion you may cross
the bodice with a Marie Antoinette fichu
cf some delicately colored chiffon or you
may wear a broad sailor collar and
with It a front of soft, lacey material,
and so on. Given such a good founda-
water. The accompanying Illustration
presents another model for the employ
ment of mohair; the godets of lis skirt
being esecially adapted to this fabric
because of their unusual depth. The
blouscd waist has Jacket pieces of em
broidered batiste let In at the stdc
seams, and straps of the same extend
across the shoulders In back and front
as far as tho waist line, where they
meet an embroidered belt. There arc a
great many acceptable models for this
material, and Its present popularity Is
so great that tho danger of going wrong

"As to the silver question, I don't be
lieve It will be tho dominant Issue next
year. The agitation Is already ceasing;
that Is, tho camp-meeting part of tho
.discussion is over, and people aro get
ting down to tho thinking. The silver
question Is ono of continual Interest;
hut, like cvory other public question,
interest-In It flows and ebbs. Interest
Is now on the ebb. I hardly think there
will be a silver ticket in the field. If
there Is U will be separate from the

although our proportion Is not so great.
The .MtuiUIon has been this. For several
years thti manufacturers vastly over
produced. It wnB ncoeftsary for them
to get rid ot this surplus product, so,
gradually, they docroasod their output,
until tho country was down to bedrook
and tho manufacturer! had disposed of
their old stocks. Then, of course, busi

continue to grow betr."

Mohair' the Stuff.
Mohair reigns, but there are many
kinds and the sort that glares with a
stove-blacking brilliancy and folds In a
crackly way Is the mohair you must not
get. The right kind has a heavy weave
and a sof, silk-like luster; It takes the
present organ-pipe folds as gracefully
as silk docs, and It outwears a silk three
times, and always looks well. No mat
ter how many other dresses one has,
one of this stuff In black will not be

front pair of bands shorter than tho
side ones Is essential to the effect, un
important as It may seem at first
thought. The blouse overhangs the
belt in front, and at the top there Is a
tiny plastron of blue satin with draped
collar to match. A huge butterfly bow
of the dress goods Is placed In front
and Is tied with dark blue. The later
color, too, appears in sleeves and belt.
Double skirts arc occasionally seen, and
though often so ungraceful as to be un
desirable, the ono whose description fol
lows Is an exception because it adapts
itself so well to the remodeling of a
gown to whose front breadth some dis
figuring accident has befallen. Only its
front Is double, on apron piece a little
shorter than the skirt being set on over
the front breadth. Its Joining with tho
skirt proper Is made ns nearly invisible
as possible to well over the hips. Then
the apron piece is allowed to swing tree
of tho skirt. Its edge Is bound with a
bright braid from the place where tho
attachment to the skirt stops, a lino
of the same braid Is carried dpwn the
side Beam of the skirt, and the edge of
the apron part is attached to this side
seam by three or four drooping straps
of braid. The apron piece may be ot
material contrasting with the rest of
the skirt, and tho Injured part of tho
original skirt Is thus concealed. An
adaption of the design meets the diffi
culty of a skirt with tho back badly
frayed at the foot by the droop a skirt
will have there even when tho front
may be all right. A Bhort length of
skirt material contrasting with the
skirt will combine and make a new ef
fect according to this model. Make a
full back and attach It to the front of
the old skirt. The scant residue of the
Beeond material will make the short
apron front, which will fall over tho
good front of tho first skirt.
