News of the Spring Hats.
Picture hats and these tiny little
• flairs that Paris has whimsically In-
sisted all the world shall wear are
side by side.
Such funny little affairs some ot
them are—regular little polo caps, or
Dutch bonnets, that are only tiny
apologies for hats, yet are wonder-
fully attractive and most becoming.
New swlsses are embroidered and
printed In all sorts of designs, the
flower Idea being perhaps prettiest
A new treatment for the tiny lace
frills that face some of the prettiest
of the spring hats Is running them
from the outer edge to the inner and
out again In a sort of polut, which is
filled In by other frills, which get
chorter and shorter as the space de-
Linen hats are exquisite, wilh every
day a new way of trimming—or of
making—them, springing up.

of light blue braid and trimmed with
blue velvet ribbon. Is one of the sim-
plest, prettiest, things imaginable.
Girl’s Dress of Bright Red.
The skirt is gathered at the top and
has a plain front breadth. The sides
and back are fin-
ished with an ac-
flounce, set on
with a little head-
ing and with a
band of the mate-
i rial piped with
I black, the ends or-

dion plaited and
finished In front

ilar bands form the

lar Is of white
cloth or silk, trim-

the chemisette Is of white lace, of
which the deep cuffs are also made.
The latter are trimmed with the piped
bands, and the full sleeves are accor-

Fixing Up the Cozy Corner.
A corner settle made for a room
with high window ledge suggests pos-
sibilities for the living room or "den.”
The settle Is made of white wood
enameled in light oak color. The
space between the window and seat
is filled in with curtained book
shelves. The ends of the settle have
a carved design which matches the
"new art” pattern of the paper—a lo-
tus variation forms the motive. This
Eeat is upholstered with brown plush.
The big square pillows are of brown
plush and brown gold cloth. One pil-
low covered with a shadow silk in
dull rose, brown and green gives a
note of warmth.
A Spring Hat.
Cutely turned up across the front Is
the spring hat of bronze-colored
"crin" or horseshoe braids. The
crown is softly Indented on top. The
brim Is broad enough to be quite high
when shecrly turned up in front, and
gives the effect of a triangular hat at
sides and back. Folded bands of rich
bronze-colored velvet, with a five-
lcoped bow of the same laid In front
cn upturned brim and resting almost
on the hair, constitute the trimming.
One superb pale rose-colored ostrich
plume almost encircles the hat. It
starts at the back and continues
around the crown, but at the left side
if curls over the brim, and hangs
down toward the back.
Meats for roasting should not be
washed, but should be wiped with a

house should be boiled with soda once

fes ‘he berries be heated for a few

A novel idea seen recently were
book shelves of ordinary pine, covered
with green burlap, stretched tightly
over the wood. This made a most
pleasing background for the books.
There are many new kinds of
aprons, for the ^demand is increasing
for them. Some are edged with em-
broidery made in muslin and tied
round the waist; others have a bib,
which is cut in one with the collar
piece; this would be very pretty for
a bazaar, with a couple of rosettes to
be placed at the waist, and where the
collar piece and the bib unite narrow
ribbons cross in the front and end
beneath this rosette. Others, again,
are bordered with lace and have a bib,
which is attached to a band going
round, just as if intended to mark
the decolletage, edged, like the skirt
of the apron, with lace. Those who
want it for work simply have a pretty
pink muslin made with a very deep
pocket, drawer in at the top beneath a
large ribbon bow. Some of the mus-
lin lace-trimmed aprons have pretty
ribbon bows attached to charming
epaulets and then, again, there are
pretty overalls, the bodice part box-
plaited, set Into a yoke embroidered
to match the cuffs. It Is a very charm-
ing addition to a pretty woman's ap-
Baby-dresses, built on old-time mod-
els,* are made dainty with narrow
laces. For the tots who can’t wear
short sleeves and low neck, come
gulmps of lace and insertion to wear
with these dresses.

Their New Corset.
Women are to no longer wear the
peculiarly low corset. They owe the
change to the Marie Antoinette fash-
ions. The straight, high stomacher
front is required to give these bodices
the straight line required from the
bust line to the deep point. Though
built on Queen Anno lines, these cor-1
sets are luxurious, with no torturing
v'ood and iron, such as that monarch
and her ladles endured. The straight-1
front effect is thus retained, only it is>
elongated. And there are the support-
ers! It is said that an old corset of
the day of Queen Anne actually shows
traces of these same supporters.

finished wilh wide bands of the velvet,

girdle is of velvet or satin.
DANGER IN THE OYSTER.
Succul wit Bivalve Prolific Produce!
There is probably no one article of
food, except raw milk, which is so
freuently a rause of disease, and some-
times even fatal Illness, as is the oys-
ter. The nutritive value of the oyster
Is very small. It takes fourteen oys^
ters to equal one egg in food value,
and more than 250 oysters to equal >
single pound of beef in food value.
This is due to the fact that the oyster
consists chiefly of water, the balance
being mostly liver and germs. The
oyster lives upon the ooze and slime
of the ocean bottom. Typhoid-fever
germs, and other disease-producing or-
ganisms are tidbits for the oyster,
and millions of them are always found
In the oyster's stomach and the mu
cons, or slimy juice, in which the oys
ter Is always bathed.
Another paper recently reports the
death of the Dean of Winchester from
typhoid fever, as the result of eating
oysters at tho mayor’s banquet in
England. The result of this death
according lo a wholesale oyster dealei
In England, has been the fulling off in
the consumption of oysters to the ex-
tent of 75 per cent; that is, that there
is only one oyster eaten now where
four were eaten before these facts
I became public. Oyster merchants and
persons engaged in the oyster bust
-ness generally. In England, are com
plaining that their business Is ruined
Within three or four days after the
death of the Dean of Winchester, the
oyster trade fell off at Emsworth from
five thousand to nothing.
Several similar epidemics have oc
curred in England, and a few in this
country. In which fatal cases of ty
phoid fever were traced directly to the
use of the oyster.
The oyster is a scavenger, and ab
solutely unfit for human food. Th6
Idea that it is more digestible than
other foods is in the highest degree
absurd. In addition to the germs with
which it always swarms, the oyster
contains a large amount of uric acid
which can not be gotten rid of by boil
ing, or by any other means.
Among the Light Fabrics.
Ever since fashion veered around
to soft, lightweight stuffs that could
bo shirred and draped and tucked and
made Into full, wide costumes, iqanti
facturers all over the world have
been working to turn heavy fabrics
into light, stiff materials into supple,
without losing the characteristics of
Nobody thought It could be done
wilh taffeta, yet soft finish taffeta has
been achieved, and has leaped into
popularity with a single bound. Among
the spring suits none is much prettier
than those in which taffeta plays an
Voile skirts—perhaps one of the
new little checked voiles, or one tkat
is plain—are trimmed with taffeta,
just the "least touch of a shade" dark-
e- in color, and the jacket—a rather
short, jaunty little affair—is of the
taffeta, tucked in the prettiest of
To Keep Cake Fresh.
An unfailing recipe for preserving
cake perfectly fresh for an indefinite
time is to keep fresh slices of bread in
the cake box. Change these as they
SOME THINGS ARE CHEAPER.
Howl Specialization in Manufacture
Reduces Cost of Production.
When Edison first made the small
incandescent electric lamps, consist-
ing of a carbon filament fixed by plati-
num wiresoin a pearshaped glass bulb
(from which the air had been exhaust-
ed, the cost was $3 each; now there
are many million similar lamps of bet-
ter quality made each year and sold
at less than twenty cents each.
Formerly watches were made by
hand and were costly luxuries; now
they are made by machinery in lots
of a thousand at a time and the cost
of a new watch that will keep fairly
good time is less than the cost of hav-
ing an expensive watch cleaned.
The same principles apply in all
lines of manufacture, and it has been
found that reduction in cost of produc-
tion, due to specialization in manufac-
ture is naturally followed by increas-
ed demand, for the simple reason that
each successive reduction brings a
new class of consumers or purchas-
ers into the market, and a commodity
which was regarded as a luxury of the
few when the cost was relatively high
becomes a necessity of the many
when the cost is reduced to a suffi-
"ciently low level.
A CHIC PARISIAN BLOUSE.
The number of dainty blouses that
French modistes have made up for the
Spring and summer will delight the
heart of the summer girl. This ex-
quisite model for to-day ir one of the
latest Importations from Paris, made
up in fine white poplin. The vest, col-
lar and reveres and lower part of the
sleeves are a delicate shade of green
Bilk covered with all-over lace, and
the reveres, sleeve ruffles and ends of
the sleeves are finished with a plait-
ing of narrow green ribbon. The
girdle is of the green silk, fastened in
front with a Jeweled buckle.
This blouse would be very effect-
ive made up in white nun’s veiling
or in any of the fine white colored
linens, with any contrasting color, as
CHILD’S FRENCH FROCK.
This little Parisian frock, designed
for mademoiselle by her modiste, will
be found equally becoming to her
small American cousin. A chic effect
is given by the graceful lines of the
garment, and the busy mother will
welcome the simplicity of the design.
In the imported model a pink dim-
ity was used, with a yoke of fine all-
over white tucking. The yoke, collar
and ends of the sleeves were finished
with Insertion and edging of fine
French embroidery. It would, how-
china silk blouse sketched here, has
an unmistakably French air, and very
sweet, indeed, will the favored
maiden look who is to wear it.
The yoke, collar and sleeve ruffles
are of fine white lace, with trimming
band and straps of rows of fagoting.
The fulness at the top of the blouse
Is gathered in jinder the trimming
band and at the bottom is caught in
witn.a shirred girdle of the silk. The
sleeve is a pretty mouaquetaire ef-
fect, finished with a dainty lace ruffle.

Still Wear Separate Blouses.
So much has been said and written
about the going out of the separate
blouse one hesitates to buy or have
made anything bordering cn these
lines. From present indications, how-
ever, they will be as necessary to
milady's wardrobe as ever.
Flick’s Time of Surprise.
“Of the many things that have
taken place during my baseball
career, 1 think the one that has most
forcibly impressed itself upon my
memory is the fact that I subbed for
Larry at second base last season,”
says Elmer Flick, the Cleveland ball
tosser. "When Armour told me to
go out to second and see how- well I
could do, I never felt queerer in my
life. A most peculiar feeling went
over me. I thought, to myself. ‘Here
’ am, going out to take the place of
the greatest second baseman in the
business—me, a man that has never
played second base and has not put
the ball on a runner since the days
I used to catch about the lots.’ Well,
I went out, and, as you know. 1 played
second base for a week without malt-
ing an error. My, but 1 fell tunny. In
fact, I used to laugh to myself out
there around second to think that 1,
who had been playing the outfield for
seven years, was actually playing
second base without a moment’s
warning. I used to pinch myself oc-
casionally to see if I were really

Poser for the Artist.
•1-i-b bulls will happen," deelnrea
ilcj.ro -illative McN'ary of Massachu-
setts. "I had a friend, an old Irish
contractor, who made a fortune and
wanted his portrait painted. He went
to the artist and the terms were satis-
" Now. have you any special pose
you want?" asked the artist.
"01 have thot.' answered the pros-
pective siter. ‘1)1 want meself painted
sthandin' behind a tree."’
"Sometimes men grow old but their
hearts stay young,” said the philos-
opher, according to the Kansas City
Journal, as he walked to the open win-
dow and wart-hed the smoke from his
cigar cur! outward. "Saw something
out on the boulevard that proved this
a little while ago," he continued.
"An old man whose steps were
feeble and faltering approached a
crowd of merry youngsters playing
marbles. It was evident that the old
man had been out little during the
winter and he keenly relished the re-
turn of spring and all that, you know.
When he reached the place where the
’kids’ were pDaying he stopped and
watched them intently for a time. The
boys paid no attention to him, blit he
entered into the game with relish de-
spite his white hair.
“ ’Makes an old man feel almost like
a boy ag'in,' he remarked as I stepped
up to him. ‘I believe 1 could shoot
marbles better than that little feller
in the red cap. My ole knuekle is
kindly rusty but I’d like ter try.'
"The more he thought of it the
more fidgety he became and every
yme one of the boys would miss the
old man would make some remark
about it. One of the boys, a particu-
larly atrocious player, resented the
old man's actions at last and said:
"‘Well, maybe you can do better!'
“•You just better bet I kin,’ said the
old fellow with conviction. ‘I'll show
you when your shot comes next time.’
"The old man prepared and waited
for his turn; At last it came and he
knelt down and took the ’glassie’ ’taw’
from the little shaver in the red cap.
Carefully he aimed at the 'fat ring’
and the five marbles placed therein.
The boys guyed him and kept telling
him to shoot, 'little finger rooster’ and
everything else, and finally he let his
thumb slip. The marble barely left
his hand and rolled harmlessly half-
way to the ’fat ring.’
"’Oh, pshaw!’ exclaimed the old fel-
low, as he rose, rubbing his rheumatic
knee, ’it slipjted before I was ready.’
“ ’Reckon you were the champion
marble player of youP district,’ said
the boy in the red cap, as he recovered
his marble, ’but you're no heavyweight
“The old man lost interest in the
game and wandered away.’’
Length of Life Decreasing
Henry Jenkins, an Englishman, born
in 1501, died in 1070, aged 169 years.
Old Parr, another Englishman, born
in 1463, lived 152 years and nine
months, and then died of high living
while on a visit to the king in London.
Jean Korin, a Hungarian peasant,
lived to the age of 172 years. It is
said that at the present time the
grqgtest number of persons above 100
years old live in Hungary. A Hun-
garian peasant, born in 1537, lived to
the age of 185 or 187 years, which was
ten years greater than the age of
Abraham. In 1848 a woman lived in
Moscow, Russia, who was 168 years.
Owen noted ninety-one deaths of per-
sons at the advanced age of 120 to 130
years; thirty-seven between 130 and
140, and twenty-eight at 160 and be-
yond. Countess Desmond was 140
years old when she appeared in the
English court in 1614. A Dane who
was born in 1623 lived to be over 145
years of age. Joan Effingham died in
Cornwall in 1757. aged 144 years. The
German government collected some
• t t »
Interesting statistics relating to
longevity in that country. In 1883
there were ninety-one persons in Prus-
sia who were over 100 years old. Be-
tween the years 1864 and 1886 more
than 7,000 persons over 100 years of
age died, and of these 155 were more
than 109 years old. The examples of
great longevity of modern times are
all to be found in the lowly walks of
life, not among kings and princes, and
they were persons of simple habits of
life. The majority of them used
neither liquor nor tobacco, and many
abstained from meat and stimulating
foods of all kinds, living upon the
simplest and most frugal fare, as is
asserted by a learned physician who
has studied longevity.
That cakes of great longevity are
decreasing is the natural result of the
evil habits of life which have been
grafted upon our civilized life, espe-*
cially during the last century. There
has been a notable decline in the pro-
portion of centenarians in France,
Germany, and Great Britain, as well
as in most other civilized countries.
KJJling a Wild Elephant
An old planter of Ceylon thus de-
scribes an elephant hunt on his planta-
tion: “About 8 o’clock one morning 1
was in the bungalow finishing off
some accounts when Sidney Fuller
of the Roads turned up on his way to
Dickoya. While we were talking we
heard a great uproar among a lot of
coolies who were working on the flat
by the river and looking out saw the
coolies running about and an elephant
going through them. He had come
through the river from the jungle on
the opposite side, which, I think, #is
now Abergeldie. The elephant went
straight up through the coffee to the
ridge above. We followed him up and
found he had got into a new clearing
of mine, felled but not burnt off; he
was making his way slowly through
the jungle beyond and we followed
after him, clambering over the felled
“When we got about fifty yards from
him he heard us, wheeled round,
charged toward us a little way and
stopped. I tried to get nearer to him,
when he charged again and I let drive
at him, but he was loo far off for tho
bullet to have much effect. He then
rushed out of the clearing back into
my coffee. When we*got out after a
hot scramble over the felling into the
upper road he was going along almost
parallel on a lower road and then
turned up a ravine which would bring
him across the road we were on. I
had one or two shots at his ear, but
he was at first sixty or seventy yards
off. He bled from his ear and from
the end of his trunk.
‘Just as he was getting nearer I had
another shot and he came down on
his knees for a moment, then got up
and slowly made his way past us to
the jungle and I was unable to stop
him, as the rifle was jammed—I could
not get the bolt to move. He went
slowly into the jungle, tumbling down
once or twice, and was bleeding from
some wounds in his head and from
the end of his trunk. The dead ele-
phant was found* at the edge of the
jungle on the other side of the ridge."

Banks of African Natives
In many parts of Africa the system
of hanking is as yet very primitive.
The natives of that part of South Af-
rica which to a great extent is inhab-
ited by bnshnien ami Hottentots hato
a peculiar system of banks. These
Kaffirs, among whom this curious sys-
tem of hanking obtains, live near Kaf-
fmiria, in the south of the Colony
country. The natives cornt- down south
from their country to trade in the sev-
eral villages and towns In large gum-
bers, stay with the Boers for a time,
then return to Kaffiraria. Their hank-
ing facilities are very primitive, and
consist entirely of banks of deposit
alone, without banks of discount or is-
sue, and they have no ehecks. But
•till they enjoy banking privileges such
as they are. From those who trade,
of their own number, they select one
who for the occasion Is to be flu ir
banker. He is converted into a hank
of deposit J>y putting all the money of
those whose banker he is into a bag
and then they sally forth to the stores
to buy whatever they want. When an
article is purchased by any of those
who are in this banking arrangement,
the price of the? article is taken by
the banker from this deposit money
bag. counted several times and then
paid to the seller of the article, after
which all the bank depositors cry ot«:
