TdE OLD FASHION NIGHT CAP.
Sedate Judge Clarl, Landmark |
Man Tells Lis About It.
While The Landmark's worsi
enemy will not charge that this
paper is a fashion sheet, it is nev
ertheless The Landmark's busi
ness to keep its readers informed
of matters of human inieresi. With
ihis preliminary we make bold to
announce that we are informed
and believe that night caps are
coming inio style again. The folks
who can hark back .10 or 40 years
remember ihai ii was a custom of
elderly ladies, on retiring, lo don a
head-covering known as a night
cap. The night caps of those days
were not built for style and the
most attractive woman was not
vain of her personal appearance
when she had one. But in those
days houses were noisieani-heaied
nor so closely built qs now. Bed
rooms were cold as “all out doors”
and the night cap was worn for
comfort, somewhat after the man
ner of the bald-headed man who
wears a skull cap. In addition to
protection from cold the night cap
kept the hair from becoming dis
heveled. The men didn't wear
night caps but in days when it was
the custom to keep a little of the
ardent in the house for sickness,
many of the old fellows took a
bracer on retiring, this same being
called a night cap. But, alas!
These are not the night caps that
are to come into style again and
the male population ts interested.
The new night caps, the feminine
writers tell us, “are beautiful af
fairs of laces and silks and all kinds
ol dainty weaves." The main
reason for the return of the night
cap, we are told. Is to keep the hair
ill shape. That would seem to be
a sensible idea, but the new style,
or revival of the old, is more pro
bably just one of the freaks of fash

LOVE’S FIRST KISS.
BY FRANK L. STAnTON.
Sweetheart, 'twas but a while ago—it scarce seems yesterday,
Tho’ now my locks are while as snow and all your curls are gray—
When, walking in the twilight haze, ere stars had smiled above,
I whispered soft, “I love you,’’ and you kissed me for that love !
The first kiss, dear, and then your hand—your little hand so sweet,
And whiter than the white, white sand that twinkled at your feet—
Laid tenderly within my own I Have queens such lovely hands ?
No wonder that the whip-poor-wills made sweet the autumn lands!
It seemed to me that my poor heart would beat to death and break
While all the world, sweetheart, sweetheart, seemed singing for your
And every rose that barred the way in glad and dying grace
Forgot its faded summer day and leaning, kissed your face !
I envied all the roses then, and all the rosy ways
That blossomed for your sake are still my life's bright yesterdays;
But thinking of that first sweet kiss and that first clasp of hands.
Life's whip-poor-wills sing sweeter now than all the winter lands !

ROMANTIC TO HEAR ABOUT.
It seems very romantic when
you read about the elopements of
years ago, when the young people
dashed otf to Gretna Green in a
coach and four, defying parents
and guardians. But we never
learn how these runaw'ay matches
my dear, and
marry in the good old-fashioned
way with your parents' blessing.
The man who urges you to elope
will not make a good husband. It
is absolutely necessary to your fu
ture happiness that you know
something about the man you mar
When he urges you to secrecy
and elopement he probably has a
In marriage, above all things,
everything must be above board
and above suspicion.
The elopement germ is chiefly
dangerous between the years of
fifteen and twenty-one, and after a
girl is twenty-one her common
sense kills it.
The road to elopement is usual
ly paved with trashy novels and a ' turned out.

that her parents are tyrants, and

Most young girls are steeped in
mistaken ideas of romance. The
very word "elopement” implies
mystery, excitement, romance.
That it also implies misery and re
gret the poor babies do not know.
The man who urges a girl to
elope is usually her inferior social
ly. With an eye to her position
and her money he plays upon her
vanity and susceptibility until she
is as wax in his hands.
WHAT ELOPEMENT MEANS.
He urges her not to tell her par
ents. The suggestion of elope
ment thrills her to the core of her
foolish little heart and she for
gets duty, home ties, everything,
so firmly has the elopement germ
seized upon her.
It would be a splendid thing if
girls would only learn that when a
man urges a girl to elope he does
so because he dare not marry her
openly and honorably.
In the first place there is noth
ing romantic about an elopement;
it is simply an underhand, uncom
fortable way of marrying.
Marry quietly if you want to,
but do it with your parents' knowl
edge and consent.
You may think yourself very
much in love with a man, but be
fore you take him for a life partner
let him meet your parents and see
what they have to say fabout him.

“Your daughter—” began
the young man, but the old
man cut him off abruptly.
“I’ve noticed that you’ve
been banging around here a
good deal.” he said. “I sup

me that you love he* and want
to marry her?”
“No,” replied the young man
calmly. “I’ve come to tell you
that she loves me and wants to

“She says so herself,” per

“It certainly is different,”
admitted the old man cautious-
“Precisely,” said the young
tnan. “She and I figured that
all out very carefully last night.
You see I have no particular
prospects, and we could both
see that there wasn’t one
chance in a hundred that you
would give her to me. Then
she suggested that you had
never yet refused anything that
she wanted, no matter what
the cost might be, and that
perhaps it would bo a good plan
to change tho usual order
somewhat. We sort of felt
that it wouldn’t be right to ask
you to do anything for me, but
it’s different in her case, as I
remarked before. So I’m here
merely as her agent to say that
she wants me and that she
wants me very much and to
ask you to please see that she
gets me. She never has want
ed anything so much as she
wants me, and I’m so favorably
disposed toward her that if you
care to make the investment
