So far, the Princess shape has

Umpire effect at the back. A lace
"yoke or lace V is indispensable with
eleeves trimmed to match and an il

Charm over the entire coituma.

Any special costume for gradua

or perhaps absorbed by the lingerie
dress, which worn over a white or
colored slip alternately, seems ever
new and fresh. Ihe beautiful ba

able summer costume. Mull is the
fabric generally selected for cotton
braiding, but any sheer stuff will
answer the purpose.
Foulards were never in greater
demand and really no other material
is so generally useful. So many pat
terns originate from dots and stripes
that it is interesting to lounge awhile
at the Jfonlard counter of a leading
house and look over the tempting
diBplay. Tiny dots in "all over"
patterns are held in high esteem by
dressmakers, then again small dots
form very large dots, stripes or
squares. Coin spots on cluster
stripes are favorites, and tiny sprigs
omeinfor their sfhare of approval.
Brown, blue aud combinations of
black and white are particularly at

Spring has Come at Last.
"Gentle Spring Is lie re niin. bringing
mirth and kindness." This has been a Ling
winter. To use a poetical and probably
classical expression, "winter lias lingered long
in the lap ol' Spring.
1 no longer pin my faith to signs and say
ings, for all signs fail in dry wuather, and
all sayings fail when they do not come true.
Bui I think spring is here now, no more
coquetting, no more p'aying fast and loose
with our feelings.
Over a mout.i ago we commenced looking
over garden seeds and planted a good many
thinus. which simply remained in the ground
while we still make tires and Jwere thaukfu
we had wood to make them. But the bright1
mornings are here again, we can almost see
the leaves growing. 1 lie larmera ara work

rows of my Jersey Wakefield. I hope to
have cabbage by the middle of June, u the
rabbits do not eat them up. Spring is my
favorite time of the year, we enn talk about
the glories of summer, the mellow autumn,
the cheery winter lires, but give me the
bright lieautiful spring. Oid nature renewed
ond made over again, a bright harbinger of
the glorious summer in prospect.
As I sit here at the window and pen these
lines, the twitter of birds from all the trees
greet my ears. I can look out upouthe fields
green with wheat covering them like an em
erald mantle (voii will note this little meta
phor) and all nature is expanding into new
life; and "All the trees on all the hills open
their thousand leaves." And flowers oh! so
many, roses, violets, red, purple, with green
lor a baautiful hack ground, and in a little
while tne whole earth will be teeming with
flowers. vSfe will lie looking as on a tinted
map, an enameled picture, brilliant with every
hue of the prism. I-et us enjoy this glorious
time of Mm year, and forgot all tlie dark days,
when not a ray i f sunshine could be seen
from morning until night, when our faith
grew weak with hojie deferred. But now
we are looking up, the clouds have rolled
awav, hone sits enthroned once more in spite
of all; and we snap our fingers at the dark
drearv depressions of last week; and rise up
and throttle the furies which aim ist engulfed

Tin- (liiarrcllng Habit.
The habit of haggling arguing
and quarreling over trifles, or split
ting hairs, especially when people
are tired, destroys health and rums
I have known large families, after
a hard day's work, to spend a whole
evening quarreling over some trivial
matter which did not amount to any
thing. Fagged and jaded after the
day's work, the mental iriitauonand
discord set in motion in the tired
brain compldtely exhausted them,
and, of course, their sleep wm
troubled aud they rose the next
morning haggard and worn, with no
freshness or spontaneity for the new
day's work. They felt as tnough
they had been out on a debauch.
When shall we learn that harmony
is the only condition under which
strength of the body and beauty of
life can be developed? One's best
work cau not be done under friction,
uor in a black, heavy, thundercloud
atmosphere. These must be sun
shine and good cheer aud a happy
environment to bring the best out of
us. The faculties uo not work nor
mally where there is even a little bit
of discoid. I'erlect harmony gives
strength -of purpose, concentration
of mind and effectiveness of execu
tion. There must be liberty no
sense of suffocation or restraint or
depiession, in an atmosphere which
develops the best in man.
Many an invalid to-day ov es his ot
her wretchedness and practical fail
ure in life to quarreling, fault-find
ing, and the bickering habit. Irri
tation, friction, or discord of any de
scription, is a great enemy of strength
health aud happiness, while absolute
harmony of character aud environ
ment is friendly to all worthy
In thousands of homes we see
gnarled, crippled, starved, stingy
lives, which have never developed in
to their greatest possibilities; lives
which have never blossomed out or
come to fruitage because of being in
a vicious atmosphere, an atmosphere
full of discord, criticism, scolding
and constant depression. No one
can do good when feeling a sense of
suffocation or strangulation.

I was shown today an article from

a cuiumn on iauonat pontics in
Washington and when asked as to
his opinion regarding the Democrat
ic presidential nominee said:
"I have no idea who the Demo
crats will nominate, unless it be
Bryan. I notice that Senatoi Bail
ey, of Texas, has announced him
self as in favor of his colleague,
Senator Culberson, if he wants the
nomination. Senator Culberson,
is an able man. lie would make an
ideal candidate from the Democrat
ic standpoint. If the South is to
put forth a candidate, she would
honor herself in nominating Cul
berson. "He said he had heard Seuator
Overman of North Carolina, men
tioned as a probable candidate for
Vice-President on the Democratic
ticket, if that party selected a
Northern man to lead it. Senator
Overman, said Mr. Piles, is an able
and fearless man and a co nmand

Senator believes he would prefer to
