Fashions of the Day.
The toque of today, with the small
brim turned up coquett'shly on the le't
aide, Cisdatns all connection with the Hat
round nonentity of a couple of years ago.
These dainty little creations are mostly
made ot apangled tulle for evening, and
of velvet for day wear, and are draped in
loose folds.
A bird of Paradise aigrette, a contrast
ing accordion plaited oow of ribbon, and
a bunch of roeee or riolets resting next
the hair on the upturned sido complete
the poem. Acother pretty new style is
a round sailor hat, with its brim turned
up in the back. The brim is made of
heliotrope velvet put on plain. The
whole of the crown ib composed of vel
vet with a stiff white aigrette on one
side to form a high relief.
With us lucky ones, who are dwelling
among the oraoge bloesjms, straw hats,
have already made their appearance
These advance models are of the rough
straw so popular last season. In most
cases they are trimmed with long
feathers en Amazone, i. c, on each side
of the hat feathers about fifteen inches
in length are placed. In the front they
lis flat, bat toward the back there are
tips which are slightly elevated and
turn inward. A tuft of velvet in front,
directly in the centre, and an aigrette
drooping over the crown are the remain
ing compsnent parts of a style warrant
ed to make even an ugly girl look charm
ing. I doubt whether the latest wrinkle
concerning skirt liniogs has reached
you. This consists in allowing the skirt
lining to hang loose from the outer ma
terial, both being fastened in the same
belt at the waist and tacked together
here and there down the seams. The
inner part of the material is finished
with a large hem, and the lining, upper
aide, is trimmed with narrow flounces,

And the most important factor in a well
regulated kitchen is the range. It must
be one that the drafts are easy and ac
cessible to handle, so that the oven can
be tempered to any degree necessary for
baking. One of the most particular
elements of making pa stable, healthy
baked fooi consists in keeping the oven
at the proper beat. It must also be
economical of fuel, in sizt and form it
must be symmetrical; material and work
manship the most perfect. It should
have beautiful and artistic designs in

All these essential features we have in

gets that Paris, the nucleus from which
all fashions for women spring, is only
ten days away at the outside. This
''latest wrinkle," the loose liniDg has
reached us and has been adopted only
for tho lighter skirts, not the tailor made
ones. Clothes that are used for the
heaviest 6uits have the linings fastened
firmly. And, too, Adelaide, I want to
add that it is much better to have a lit
tle stiffness around the bottom of a
cloth skirt. Louise had a beautiful suit
sent home a few days ago. The skirt
was made with a seam in the middle of
the front and with the flounces set on at
the knee, sides and back without any
stiffening. She returned it to Madame
with instructions to make it firmer
around tho bottom edge with fine horse
hair cloth. It was so so swapsey and
switchey, and twisty she couldn't wear
it. It made her nervous. The skirt it
self looked old before she wore it at all.
All you say about the ungainlinees
and general unsuitability of the blouse
k painfully true, and yet, alas! our vel
vet coats and evea our sable and seal
jackets are cut en blouse, our silk and
our chiffon evening waists bag in a way
most unpleasant to those of us who are
inclined to embonpoint and even our
shirt waists are made with revere but
toning over to one side, and they sag to
the front and to the side eeams. The
only relief to the detestable blouEe is the
dainty and jeweled and jetted and em
broidered and all kinds of extravagances
belt. The broad band has gone out,
the dernier cri is a narrow strip. It is
of black velvet studded with steel, with
silver and turquoises, or it is of gold fila
gree with a gorgeous buckle, or it is stud
ded with presious stones, according to
taste and pocketbook of the wearer.
Just a word about sleeves. Two shapes
reign at present. The one, all plain un
adorned jacket sleeves for cloth costumes
and the other perfectly tight up to the
shoulder, where a small puff more high
than broad in effect, remains as the last
vestige of our vanished greatness. In
the thin materials, such as lace, chiffon,
moussisline de soie and spangled tulle,
the sleeve is wrinkled in its entire
length. A fall of lace halt covering the
hand is the invariable finish for sleeves
of house or evening gowns.

Finally, with your four side combs fasten

the droop of the hair over the fore
head should be a little sideways, from

"halo" what you choose, but don't make

Cured the Mule.
"I was riding along a mountain road
in Eastern Kentucky,' remarked a trav
elling salesman, "when I saw a mule
runniog toward me with a single-tree
dangling at his heels. With great diffi
culty I succeeded in turning out of his
way, and he continued to go down the
mountain at a lively pace.
"About a mile farther on I saw two
front wheels of a spring wagon and a
short distance away the other wheels and
the wagon box. I looked around to see
if the driver had been hurt, but, finding
no one. 1 drove on.
"In a few minutes I met a man walk
ing down the road, rather hastily.
'Stranger, he queried, 'did yV see a
mewl down thar? '
" 'Did he hev a rag over 'is year?'
' 'I didn't see any.'
"'Waal, it's all right I reckon 'e'll
stop when 'e gits flustered out an' I
reckon 'e's cured.
" 'What is he cured of? I asked.'
"'Balkin'. Yo' Ee9, I heerdthet a
grasshopper put in th year o' a hoes or
mewl 'ed cure im from balkin'; so I tied
a rag over th critter's year so it couldn't
git out, cotcbed a grasshopper, put 'ini
in, an', stranger, i't th' bee' remedy I
ever seed, lb.' mewl didn't give me
time to git in th' wagon. I never did
see a mewl eo sprightly. I reckon th'
hopper's got out now, an' 111 go on an'

"I have the secret of how to make an
absolutely punctureless tire," said the
dying philanthropist, "but it shall die
with me.'
"Think better of it." said his best
friend. "Think what joy such a tire will
give to mankind. Tell me the secret."
"Nay, nay. Such tires might please
a few wheelmen, but think of the num
ber of joke writers who would ba sent to
the poorhouse."
