coachmen's coats, long direc'oires and
automobile styles, while for etoim coats
the Ragland and Newmarket, made of
kt-reey or Irish fruze. will be the favor
ites. The important feature of the autumn
tailor-made costume is the return to the
simpler lines of a few years ago. It has
o en so elaborated of late that it was
hardly recognizab e as the mode based
on the severity of masculine fashions.
E nbroidery, applique, the thousand and
one fanciful touches of last year, will bo
ignored by the tailor maid of 1901 '02,
who veil! tolerate nothing more frivolous
than Etitcbings, traps and military
braid. Corded fabrics are returning to
favor for these costumes, displacing to
some extent the smoothly finished cloths
ti vogue last year, says the Saturday
The fashions indicated thus far are
not encouraging to the petite or the ex
tremely slender young woman, but there
is hope, even for her. Short box coats,
blouses and Louis XV coats all have
place in the list of modish garments, so
every one may choose. A little woman
is likely to be grotesque in a long or a
' ihree-quartera'' coat, and is pretty cer
tain to be insignificant in a severe tailor
made cofetume. Her only chance lies in
studying her individuality, and even ac
centuating it. The dainty and the es
sintially feminine are her distinctive
characteristics, and if properly treated,
may give her a charm all her own, even
if entirely unlike the more imposing im
pression made by the tall girl of ampin
proportion who can look stunning in se
The little woman must have a tailored
gown, of course, but the tight-fitting coat
tha extends below the waist line is not
for her. A j-iunty reefer may suit her
well, and she is to be pardoned it she re
fuses to let the Eton go. It was made
for her by the guardian genius of little
If Mr. F. Marion Crawford doesn't
l,)ok out, some day he will say some
thing which will bring upon him the
dire displeasure of the editors. He came
perilously near the danger line in "A
Rose of Yesterday" when he said: "She
rarely read newppapers. and generally
trusted to other people to learn what
they contained. The maimty read
papers for amusement, or for the sort of
excitement produced on nervous minds
by short, strong shocks often repeated.
These are the persons who ponder the
paper daily for half an hour in absorbed
silence, and then lift up their voices and
cackle out all they have read, as a hen
runs about and cackles when she has
laid an egg. They fly at every one they
see, an unnatural excitement in every
tone and getture. and ask in turn
whether each friend has heard that this
one is engaged to be married, and that
another is dead and has left all bis
money to a hospital. When they.have
asked all the questions they can think
of. without waiting for an answer, they
relapse into their normal condition, and
become again as other men and women
One advantage of reading a serial
story in a daily newspaper is that an in
stallment of convenient length is re
ceived every day that does not consume
an undue amount of the reader's time.
An installment of a high grade serial
story appears in every issue of The Chi
cago Record-Herald a popular feature
of that enterprising Chicago daily.
Every issue contains also a short illus
trated humorous Btory on th editorial
page. Readers of The Chicago Record
Herald can depend upon a never-failing
source of pleasant entertainment in the
dote worthy Action that is always to be
foucd in its columns.
Is the Airship Coming?
Recent experiments wtth dirigible lal
loons, together with the interest aroused
by the forthcoming competitions for air
ships at Paris, lead optimists to thick
that aerial navigation ie much nearer
than ever before. To these Prof. Simon
"Newcomb'a conservative article in the
September McClure's, "Is the Airship
Coming? ' will be incontrovertible testi
mony in rebuttal. Looking at the ques
tion of aerial navigation both from tha
scientific standpoint and from the prac.
tical standpoint, Prof. Newcomb points
out the very serious difficulties which
must be overcome. He also shows that,
from a commercial standpoint, there is
no demand fur, or need of, transportation
by airship. This he considers a very ser
ioub obstacle in the solution of the prob
lem. There is, be believes, nothing iu
tne realization of aerial navigation to
warrant an inventor's giving time and
thought to the subj-ct. He says practi
cally, "What's the u6e?"
Mr. H. C. Beeching, whose contro
versy with Andrew Lang about the
teaching of literature the reader will
remember, contributes to the current
Longman's eome amusing answers to
examination questions set in the English
public schools. Whether or not Eng
lish literature can be taught and here
we have Beeching pro and Lang con it
is pretty certain that it is not success
fully taught in the English schools, says
the New York Evening Post. Hear
what the tnglish schoolboy learns at
considerable pains about Wordsworth.
"Wordsworth was an early Victorian
pjet. He wrote the 'Excursion.' He
also wrote the 'Ring and the Book.' "
"Wordsworth's 'Excursion' is one of the
fiuest poems of its sort ever written. Be
sides this, be wrote numerous preludes
which are very beautiful." "Words
Wir.h wrote the 'Fate of theNortons"
and 'Iuiiuiationa of Immortality' " ,
''Wordsworth regarded Nature as a
swaetheart. His principal work is
'Tales of a Wayside Inn."' William
Wordsworth is Known as the poet of
Nature. In his youth he received a
university education, and that led him
to Bay that the meanest flower that blew
gave him thoughts too deep for tears
It seemed as if a blade of grass spoke to
him. Probably the beauties of his home
surroundings (Lake District) ltd him to
love Nature. His longest poem was the
'Excursion'; but many shorter ones are
well known, as 'Lucy Gray,' 'The Poet
Boy, Tne Pet Lamb,' while his 'Ode on
Immortality' 16, indeed, grand." But
for the unfortunate intrusion of the
"Post-Boy'' one might have been al
most persuaded that this young gentle
man had read the poems of which he
spoke bo glibly.
One of those felicitous blunders that
occasionally enlivens the examiner's ,
drudgery is the following: -'Woidsworth
dieJ a natural death. This apparent
truism seems less 6trange when the boy
goes on to explain: "He was the author
of the 'Excursionist.' "
What the Story Teaches.
The teacher was telling the story of
the goose that wanted to be a swan and
was mocked at for it.
"And now, whal'a the moral of it?"'
"A person should be satisfied with be
ing a goose," answered the dunce of the
class. Philadelphia Times.
