It is a pity that the Jury could not have gone a step farther and In dicted for murder nil wno nta Dsn- round the false and malicious stories that had first slain the young woman's reputation and then slew her. Certainly every scandal mon ger among them was accessory be fore the crime of her death. "Killed by Idle gossip!" How often that epitaph "might be . written over a ruined life or a broken heart, and how few of ua can hold up clean hands and wear ourselves free of blood guiltiness! We may not have originated the black tory that blighted the career of a fel low creature. Wit we listened to It. We 4iod by and held the garments of those vino stoned the Innocent Vur attitude toward gossip Is passing strange. We admit that the good name Is the most precious possession of a man or woman, and that to rob them of this Is to make them poor. Indeed. Tet we, who would not take a penny from their purse, have no hesitation In filching their reputation from them. We, who are punotltlouely honest and would scorn to pass on a dime whose value we even sus pected, pass on a scurrilous story with- stopping an Instant to investigate 5 truth. We. who are tender-hearted and could rot bring ourselves to Inflict the slight est physical pain upon another human being, have a ghoulish delight in tearing to pieces the character of even our riends. though there is no other torture I hat the victim would not rather underso. There is nothing sacred from idle cos rip. Nobody exempt. It is rarely even intentionally malicious. It is Just an evil, Plasmatic wind that comes from nowhere nnd blows everywhere, poisoning all upon whom It breathes. A man and his wife live happily to gether, trusting each other. Idle gossip logins whispering over the teapots or through a haae of cigar smoke some vague suspicion of husband or wife that prows into a iimor, that spreads Into a rcnort. that crystallizes into a helno.u charge, and a home is broken up by 1L A boy does 'something wrong in ino lolly of his youth.

Idle gossip tells over the story with a thousand embellish ments, and shuts every door of oppor tunity In his face A girl Is silly and Indiscreet. Nothing Is really wrong with her, but Idle gossip blackens her name until It drives her Inti I becoming the thing It calls her. Why should we hurt people with our or.gues that . we would not Injure with ur hands? Why should we blacken their haracters when we would scorn to throw lnaTid authority for everything else de mand none for injurious stories concern ing our neighbors? Idle gossip does more harm than any thing else In the. world, and If the ladies 'who are so fond of reforming things really do want to start a reform that will to more for the happiness of the world than anything else, they will inaugurate an antl-goeslping crusade. And they can lgln it in their own proper persons, for (die gossip, like charity, begins at home. Aft U r wear l a novel ly . ' ""'e 'Jfej I ' '. r s ' V. , v - ' I Thsss models I ry - . , .

Cole. Characteristic of the afternoon cos tume of black satin is the shallow cape bordered with fur (at the top). From Oppenhelm & Collins. ISy GEKMA1XE GAUTIER. It is astonishing the progress that satin Is making as a winter fabric. In a way, It bids fair to supersede velvet, and It is onsldered more elegant In appearance thun the soft woolens and worsteds whl;li f rcry one Is agreed are fsr more attrac tive this year than ever before. Much ot the Utter materials are used In skating and other outing costumes. Ji'rt now skating Is all the rage, and hats and caps and scarfs which combine I oth style and comfort are being shown In varied designs and in all colors. An effort has been made to popularise certain of the cordod silks, but somehow they lack the distinction and the youth giving charm possessed by their rivals, I ho satin fabrics. Orosgraln silks, such 04 poult de sole, faille Francalne, gros de 1 .ndres and kindred weaves have all teen tried out with varying degrees of success. Maybe we shall see more of them when the deml-season models are rhown, but the shiny type f silk has the li ed at present. Velvets are far and away the most fash ionable thing for evening wraps. The Ruyest colors are exploited in these. Geranium la a favorite tone, and so is eld rose. Even white-haired dowagers rre af footing velvet wraps of crimson hi'e, toned down with dark furs, and through the kindly aid of the latter made ically very becoming. Less blue nuances rre seen this year than for several sea eons. The ' liking for high colors Indicates probably that fashion's pendulum Is swinging In an opposite direction after a season or two of dull, sober tones. No matter how one may attempt to account for it, the fact remains that the In herent love of color la allowed to express Itself quite freely this autumn. For daytime wear there are jaunty skirts of velveteen, black, plum or brown, which are completed by leather coats In contrasting color. Green kid, purple kid and the natural shade are very much admired. In length these coats are about thirty-two Inches. The generality of Tuxedo skating act. Hand-knit woolen acarf and hat, with colored borders; very attractive and very original, and may be had in any color. From Abercronible & Fitch. them are single-breasted, but there are exceptions to this rule which shpw the double hue ot buttons down the front. The smartest models dispense alto gether with fur trimming, and It must be confessed that there is something absolutely unique and attractive In the smart untrlmmed lines of the kid coat. There Is, to be sure, no law to prevent a woman wearing a fur scarf with such a coat, but edgings, bandings and such everyday application of fur seems to b tabooed In so far as the new coat is concerned. At the Yale-Princeton game last Sat urday ever so many whit cloth and white corduroy suits were noted. The majority of Instances showed them trimmed with otter or with sealskin. They were worn by young girls whose costumes were completed by a toque of while with fur bands of pompons as trimming. As extra precaution against penetration of east winds, many of the sisters, sweethearts and cousins of the Yale or Princeton men wos angora scarfs in the colors of the college favored. Despite the edict that dark shoes must be worn with dark costumes, women cling to the spat effect, particularly where the latter affords a note of re lief from the duli tone ot the suit. The casual observer would declare that Just as many white spats are worn now as one year ago. There are. It is true, fewer tan colored effects In footwear. For one thing the tan vogue has died out. and with it the ralson d'etre of the tan gaiter or ahoetop. On the other hand, so long as white Gloves are the ruling thing with the tailor-made, and white hats frequently (Hill I Hiu I I . Il I lU , i jr- mi. ,. in i 'y wmm i Old School Books Bring Back Memories crown the costume, there Is a logical ex ruse for the maintenance of the white spat. This year It Is cut mmh higher than its predecessor of several months r.go. Pome of them are trimmed with black, but the majority are without trim mlrg. The small muff Is the rule this season. t ometlmes the muff Is ridiculously tiny, but on the whole the average woman Is carrying one of the medium slse that teems to fit in with the new silhouette and to give the completing touch to one's street garb. There never was a season when muffs could be made from almost rny fabric, and by the mere act of ac. companying a neckpiece and a hat of matching materials be considered abso lutely appropriate ana modish. Velvet Is a favorite material for muff and scarf composition. The clever girl can buy a muff form and cover It her 11, and the matter of the scarf requires a shaped foundation on which the ma terial may be shirred or smocked, or plaited. It Is quite essential that a little lur be used, but there la no prescribed rule for Its application. Hand-made flow cis of either silk or chenille are liked, and In some cases these flowers are posed on the small hat. The muff and scarf may be.. made of satin, of chiffon cloth or even of the woolen stuff of the suit. Much depends mi the shaping of these places and also un the woman who carries them. Every ore knows that there are some type ot vomen who Impart distinction to any garment they elect to wear; while others, unfortunately, seem to detract and make even a good-looking accessory appear un worthy Its place In fashion's category. C Advice to Lovelorn T aBATOO VAXmVAX 1 Do Not Annoy Her. Dear Miss Fairfax: I hold a nesltion a clerk In a large department house, snd for some time i hsve been paying atten tion to a girl whom I have loved from the first day I ssw her. but she doe not sm-in to encouraaa me.

DIBCOl'RAQKD. If the young lady has shown that she does not care for you In a pos'tlvc man ner you are foolish to force your atten tions on her. Why not ask her plainly T If she does not care for you treat her with the same courtesy you bestow on your ether friends. Food German chemists recently de vised a means to make bread from straw, and now It Is announced that a proce. has been Invented at the Institute f ir Fermentation Industry at Perlln whereby albumin, or protein, can be made from sugar and ammonium sulphate. The Ides ot straw powder to act aa food origi nated in this way. Prof. Boruttau an nounced the "discovery" that vegetables ran be reduced to a fine powder which could be used for food. Hence it oc curred to him to powder such substancci aa bran and straw. These were mingled with pure protein matter, probably pro cured from sugar.

Lightning Is of three kinds ctg-isg, and sharply defined at the edges; in sheets of light, Illuminating a whole cloud, which seems to open and rsveal the light within It; and In the worm of fire-balls.

Stopping to pass away an hour In the N'ew York Publio library, I was delighted to find an exhibition of old school books, some of which were used by our grand fathers, some by our fathers and mothers, 'and some by the generation to which I belong, when it was young. There were the "readers" thst I so well remember, "first," "second," "third," "fourth." "fifth." "slat h" (there was a tradi tional "seventh.", like Mohammed's topmost heaven, to whose sublime alti tude I never got). What pride flushed boy who overheard a neighbor; "He s In the sixth reader!" And there was the "primers" and the "A B C books," which did not disdain pictures wherein the letters of the alpha bet sometimes had legs and gambolled In a manner to make them forever memor able to the Infant mind; and the "spell ers," bringing reminiscences ot boys with "roundabouts." and little girls with ' gllng rows and laughing at one another efforts to spell "tislc" (p-rt-h-l-s-t-c); and the "arithmetics." which brought glory t the natural calculator and de spair to the mathematically blind. The pictures In those old books, which gave them half their educational value, were "made by hand," true wood cuts, doubly Interesting and Instructive be cause even a boy could see how the artist gut his effect and was often led to Imi tate them; but how could anybody eae any art in. or get any Inspiration from a modern "processed" picture? Th human element was " left in thos old school book pictures, and th artist him self spoke tn his work. For that reason every child pored over them and got "th good" out of them. They were ladders for his climbing mind, whose construc tion he could understand. Although the books In the exhibition are Jealousy and suspiciously locked In glass-covered cases, so that nobody can mercifully relieve their faded and yel lowed leaves for a few momenta from the strain of their fetter, I oould ae that they contain the fine old "pieces," whose selection from the really best literature did so much credit to their compilers and so much good to the minds of their readers. I very seriously doubt If the practice of today putting "edited" edition ot long literary work into the hand of school children Is an Improvement upon the old method of the "reading book" and "speaker" which gave greater variety. In smaller compass, and Uft th broad fields of literature to be eultlvated after ward by those who had th taste, ability and time to enter them. la those day there were no book "trust," exploiting the public school on the modern commercial principle, whose keynote 1 "Don't let the product stagnate; keep changing It In order to promote more frequent demand." A whole generation, then, and sometimes two gen eration, used the am books, whose nam became household words: "8and esr." or "McOuffey"," or "Town's read er," "Webeters spelling book," "Bing ham's Columbia Orator" survived the reigns of many ueoeaiv schoolmasters and Inspired th mind of youth for many consecutive decade, but now such thing are changed often. One of the most pleasing feature of th exhibition 1 the . collection of an tique Dutch school book, used In th fay when New York was New Amster dam. Here the display of pictures Is exceedingly quaint. Some of the title pea and Illustration are gem of the engraver's and prtater arts. .One envies the children whe had such books to study.
