Cashmere House Gown.
This attractive house gown is of
treen silk of a light shade. The vest
and the belt are of silk. The trim-
ming consists of broken key design
made of ribbon of green matching the
cashmere and fagoted with silk twist
matching the silk. The sleeves are
finished with ribbon and fagoting.
Many of the gowns are built along
nouveau art lines and the woman of

she had stepped off a calendar. She

Is the mlroir velvet. It comes so thin

that could be produced.
But. there are cheaper velvets that
are pretty and fashionable and pretti-
est of ail in brown are the crushed
velvet suits which are soft In tone
rich in texture and admirable for mak-
ing tip purposes.
Shaded Plumes Pretty.
The vogue of the ombre or shaded
colorings Is one that Increases as the
season reaches its height and is pret-
tily exemplified In this hat of shaded
browns In volvet and chenille trimmed
with a long full plume showing the
raspberry tints running Into white.
The crown is high the brim so wired
that It may be bent to the most becom-
ing curve and a bandeau tucked into
the headslze at the left side to give a
becoming tilt to the shape. Shaded
brown velvet roses cover the bandeau
and an applique of ecru Irish crochet
lies flat on the edge of the brim.
To Serve Mayonnaise.
A good Idea for serving tartar sauce
or mayonnaise Is to put It In a little
"lemon basket" that la half a lemon
nearly cleaned out and then filled with
the sauce. One of these should go to
each guest. The great advantage in
this la that the sauce does not get
molted by being put on the hot plate
with the fish fried oysters etc. If
the fish Is served on a platter it may
be surrounded with these little ' lemon
baskets." If It Is nerved from the
pantry a "lemon basket" should be
placed on each plate. Harper's Bazar.
Costume a Poem In Red.
A costume that might well be called
a poem In red was Been In the tea-
room of one of New York's most fash-
ionable hotels where the sartorial
elect love to gather for a cup of tea
and a bit of gosilp. Tbe gown had a
rather long but round-abaped skirt and
was In dark red chiffon velvet shirred
on several fine cords around the hips
falling full and untrlmmed to the floor.
The shlrrlngs on the skirt were car-
ried up a la princess to girdle depths
around the waist. No fastening was
risible but this was doubtless hidden

among the full gathers at the back as
most of the modish costumes are fast-
ened In this manner. The little short-
backed waist was of a cloth in a light-
er shade than the velvet and sleeve-
less or more properly speaking hav-
ing a sleeveless effect the sleeves be-
ing caught in puffs with bands and
tucks of the cloth and the little coat
was strapped with velvet. The vest
and stock collar were of gauze and
touches of silk were introduced in the
cuffs and revera. With this costume
was worn a black velvet cavalier hat
with natural ostrich feathers and over
a chair bung the wearer's wrap of red
velvet lined with Russian squirrel.
Smart Midwinter Styles.
A well-known milliner says that ca
mellias and stiff petaled flowers of
this family will be worn on fur toques.
A swagger hat of sable in flat sailor
shape had a close-set wreath of white
gardenias around the crown.
Another model was a theater crea-
tion with a crown of violets and their
leaves. A brim of embroidered pale
green tulle spread like an aureole
around the head. Two white feathers
so placed as to fall over the brim in
front gave a very novel movement to
A shape which promises to become
popular in Me exclusive modlstic

Bersaglieri feather. Everyone who has
traveled in Italy will remember the

vorite regiment and fashion has adopt-
ed the regimental plume for one of her
"novelties this season.
How to Water Flowers.
The most particular thing in the
house culture of plants is the water-
ing. So many people think they are
doing their duty if they give their
plants a little water every day. This
is altogether wrong. When you find
your plants dry they need water.
This can be easily learned by tapping
the pot with the knuckles and getting
a ringing sound from dryness and a
dead sound when it Is wet enough o
by rubbing the soil on the top of th
pot with the finger; If It feels moist
and sticks to the finger it Is wel
enough but If it feels dry and slightly
dirty it wants water. Water It well
and be Bure the water has gont
through the pot. By half watering
that is not giving It enough water tc
go to the bottom the roots are drawt
io the top for a drink instead of going
down where they will get both fooc
and drink. Never let plants stand it
water either in saucers or Jardinieres
as it will in mosc instances In cf
decay of the roots which will b
fatal to the plants. Montreal Her

GIANTS OF OTHER DAYS.
Fissil of a New Animal and Cni of
the Ichthyosaurus Foi:nd.
Important discoveries in Western
fossil beds are announced by Prof.
John C. Morrlam head of tbe psleon-
tologieal department of the University
of Califorria. A remarkable spesimen
of the very early Ichthyosaurus was
unearthed in the middle trlasslc lime-
stones in Nevada. Tho specimen
showed the greater part of the anterior-half
of the body including the
skull vertebrae and font limb or
paddle the upper arm a:;d forearm of
the latter being perfect and distinct.
Another important fiad was that
made in the SamtTl Cave in Shasta
county. It consisted of the greater
part of the skeleton of an animal ai
large as an elk but with distinctly
sheep and goat efflrJiies. The most
noticeable feature of the fossil i3 the
horns which are so large and magnifi
cently formed that they make the ani-
mal distinctive among bovinos at least
of any type known here.
The skeleton will soon be set up in
the Paleontological museum at Berke-
ley. White Bear Killed In West Virginia.
Two hunters who were driven by
rain to take shelter In a cave in the
mountains of Nicholas county roused
a perfectly white bear with pink
eyes which had quarters in the cave.
When roused from its slumber the
bear attacked the men with ferocity
and severely injured one of them.
Mr. Wilson Graves who fired the
shot that killed the animal has the
skin and will have the same prop-
erly prepared and mounted. The hide
has the texture and the head the ap-
pearance of the common black bear
except that the skin is snow white
and the eyes pink. Montgomery Cor

Thibetans have the most preten
tious and grotesque masks which are
used in their religious ceremonies and
the custom even extends to the far
Islands of ihe South seas. From these
tropical waters to tbe white wastes
of the frozen north is a far cry yet
there is a similarity between the
masks of the Malay tribes and those
of the Eskimos which seems to link
these faraway peoples. Herewith is
given the picture of an Eskimo mask
front and rear. It Is fairly indicative
of the artistic feeling in these odd
people and while primitive has in it
something of a higher promise.
Pebble Bears Likeness of Savior.
A limestone pebble bearing a strik-
ing image of the face cf Christ which
was picked up at Oberammergau in
September 1SS0 the day after the de-
cennial performance of the "Passion
Play" is the remarkable possession of
Mrs. Eugenia Jones Baron of Atlanta.
The likeness can only be seen when
the light falls upon the stone from a
certain direction. Tho countenance
i9 perfect in every detail as portrayed
by the great masters and the closed
eyes with the pallid color of the stone
give the face a sad expression. The
nostrils are thin and across the brow
are the deep furrows of worry and

j There Is no lack of demonology In
the traditions of New Fngland but it
is wholly a fabric wrought by fear and
dread. The situation of the early col-
onists no less than the prevailing
! tendpnev nf iha fitinwa wa favornhlfl
to belief in the supernatural. The
deep unexplored forests were full of
mystery and this mystery was invari-
ably associated with dread. The stern
religion of the Puritans frowned upon
the tales of fairyland. No merry
laughing elves tripped in the glancing
moonlight under the great trees; no
gentle fairies hid in the flowers; in-
deed the flowers themselves were half
despised as vanities. St. Nicholas
even drove his deer and sledge around
and over New England for two centu-
ries before he dared to descend a
chimney to hunt for the stockings of
good little boys and girls.
The woods like the religion of the
Puritans were full of dread. There
were devils in both. Every cleft In
the rocky hillsides if of unusual size
or depth wa3 sure to be reckoned a
devil's den and there were compara-
tively few towns In New England that
could not boast of one. New Hamp-
shire has many of them and one al-
though the fact is not generally
known Is entitled to the distinction
of having inspired the gentle poetic
muse of Whittier.
Devil's Den in New Hampshire.
Whether or not New Hampshire was
at one time specially favored by his
satanic majesty in the selection of his
dwelling places local folklore does not
B'a'.e with any degree of positiveness
but certain it Is that from time away
back the evil one has been accredited
with having maintained an all-the-year-round
home in that state and that
too within the confines of what Is now
the little town of Auburn seven miles
from the city of Manchester eastward
as the crow flies toward the sea.
Not only Is the devil accredited with
having been a resident of that locality
but moss-covered legends have it that
he also maintained a separate estab-
lishmenta church a devil's church
an open-door affair from a pulpit in
which he was wont to expound his evil
doctrines. The home of the devil In
Auburn Is known to-day and has long
been known as the Devil's Den and it
is so recognized in official historical
documents. The "church" Is located
in the town of Bedford a few miles
away and has long been known s the
The Devil's Den is a cave whose
black and awesome mouth yawns be-
hind a thick screen of leaves In the
summertime within a few yards of the
shaded turnpike on the outskirts of
Auburn village and In the winter
when the leaves have gone frowns
upon the traveler who may chance
that way. Low-browed is the entrance
and low-browed are the hallways
which would indicate that his satanic
majesty was either very short In stat-
ure or else an adept In the contortion
Within the cavern there are no stal
actited and lofty-domed chambers; in
fact there is a decided lack of accom
modations in the way of room It be-
ing necessary for one to remain dou
bled like a jack-knife a greater part
of the time spent in exploring Its re
cesses. There are no ancient records
to show that the devil was hump-
backed but long residence In a cave
with the characteristics of the Au-
burn devil's den would be pretty sure
to fasten a stoop of some kind on to
one or to inculcate into one's general
make-up what is now vulgarly desig-
nated as the "kangaroo walk."
The Devil's Den is the despair of
amateur photographers- it being very
difficult to obtain good pictures of it.
The entrance to the cavern is so situ-
ated that good results are not easily
arrived at and the interior is In ab-
solute darkness the dripping damp-

The Devil s Pulpit is located in a
vast fissure or opening in a mighty

mass of rock apparently the result of
some convulsion of nature. Over the
precipice thus formed is a fall of wat-
er many feet into the .gulf . below
where there are several excavations
in the solid lock at the bottom of the
chasm and in the sides. One of these
excavations bears a striking resem-
blance to a pulpit and this fact gave
to the place its name. There is a
large pool at the bottom of the chasm.
Into which several streams of water
uintinuallv run. The constant bubbling
makes the pool take on the appear-
ance of a plot of boiling water. This
pool is called the Devil's Boiling Pot
and it was in this receptacle that his
satantc majesty was supposed to have
cooked his boiled dinners.
Close by the boiling pot the devil
had a nice big oven in which to bake
his turkeys and pumpkin pies. The
oven lacks a door by which to keep
the heat on the inside but it was the
devil's oven and those to whom it is
exhibited must overlook any inconsis-
tencies in its arrangement.
A long flight of stairs leads down
from daylight into the gloomy cheer-
loss realms of the chasm and as one
enters the main pathway leading to
the pulpit one can see outlined upon

the precipitous rock beside the pulpit
a large footprint. The size of the
imprint would indicate that the owner
of the foot that made It were he now
among the living would be obliged to
get measured for his shoes in a ten-
acre lot. And here again the bark of
consistency smashea upon a rock for
the footprint could not well be that of
the devil as In the days when he was
supposed to have held a voting resi-
dence in the locality men usually went
about barefooted while this particular
footprint might well be used as a
modern plan of a well-made fashion-
able shoe. Then too according to the
best information obtainable the dev-
il's feet were not constructed upon
that sort of a model.
Indian Pock and Tipping Rocks.
Half a mile from the Devil's Pulpit
is a very interesting and wonderful
natural curiosity in the shape of a
granite bowlder 15 feet high and 4C
feet in circumference. The bowlder
is nicely balanced on three flat ledge
stones and on its south side is an
opening large enough to admit a per-
son of ordinary size. The cavity
widens on the interior into a room
eight feet long and six feet wide the
walls of the chamber being fantastical
ly grooved and hollowed.
In the neighboring village of Goffs-
town toward the setting sun are three
very large bowlders which are known
as the Tipping Rocks but whether
they were placed there by his satanic
majesty for his own particular amuse-
ment is not stated by tradition. H is
believed however that he had noth-
ing to do with them as his name has
never been connected therewith so
far as can be ascertained; still there
have been persons who have imagined
that there was something devilish
about the rocks through the fact that
although the bowlders weighed hun-
dreds of tons they could easily be
tipped and swayed by a gentle push
of one hand.
If the devil did place those rocks
there he certainly did a .very good job
in the balancing line for the pivotal
arrangement" has held good longer
than the memory of man and is still
doing excellent work. Rocking these
great bowlders is a novel and interest-
ing experience for many persons who
visit this part of New Hampshire.
