JOSIE'S NEW HAT.
The question of a new hat is a serious
ore to all girls, even to those who have
rich papa and lull purses.
TojJosie Heme it had, alas! always
been a serious question, but on a certain
momentous occasion, about to be. de
scribed, its seriousness waa beginning
to assume appalling proportions.
This was the way of it:
The Newcome girls had gotten up a
lawn-party, led on to do so by the ex
ample of some friends who had but re
cently returned from a prolonged resi
dence abroad, and who declared that
life in the country was not to bo en
dured without lawn-parties now and
then to relieve its tedious mono---
girls, too,'ihruir way; iu.. ,
a little loed, a little slangy and some
what disposed " to put on airs," as thej
Raid in Centreville. But, on the whole,
good-natured and kind-hearted girls;
and little Josie Heme, who was the
daughter of their music master, had
often found them eo. They were con
stab tly inviting her to the house when
her father came to give them lessons ;
they often in vit ed he r to tea more often
than Josie could aecept, for she had so
few dresses, and such as she had were
not in a very fine state of preservation,
notwithstanding Uie care she took ol
them. And in summer, especially, she
had often to refuse invitations to tea,
when she . would very gladly have ac
cepted them, because her summer ward
robe consisted of two cheap muslin
gowns, made by her own skillful little
hand; and each time yhe went out
any where it was neci sary to appear
in one or other of these gowns, carefully
lanndriert b v. Jo sic- heiscif.
And how fresh and pretty they looked,
too; and e no one ever dreamed how
flushed and tired Josie had been after
the ironing, or what economy she had
Eracticed to enable her to buy the extra
alf pound of starch.
But she didn't mind that, not a bit,
Rafter the task was accomplished. She
was just as happy, and enjoyed herself
probably much more than any one of
those girls whose dresses were so many
that they would have been puzzled to
number them as a mere matter of mem
ory. But sometim.Ts even the strictest econ
omy failed to bilng in the extra starch;
and as Josie was her father's house
keeper, and did all the laundry work as
well as her own dresses, and the cook
ing, house-cleaning, everything, in
short, and kept the tiny cottage as neat
and trim as a flower-garden, it hap pened,
occasionally, that, she couldnt even
afford the time to go up to the New
. come's grand house to enjoy the hoi.. ".

tcfirna Tponle of her own age, and en-
loyed a good time quite as much as any
young, brignt, nappy giri wjuiu. ,
But oh I the hours of anxiety that
beset Josie after the too tempting invi
tation had been accepted.
All Centreville would be there, ox
course; the Newconies had the finest
lawn in the neighborhood, and every
wiv wnntd be charmingly dressed.
Such an opportunity lor the diplay of
summer toilets did not occur every
- day, and when it did, of course every
one would take ad vantage of it.
Josie was' not a vain girl, and only
moderately fond of dress; but for a lawn
party a hat wua an absolute ec-essity,
.and what in the world was she going to
do? for she had been wearing her dark
' straw, trimmed with a bright winged
little bird, all the spring and so far into-
the summer that only a natural brunette
complexion, like hers could have stood
BUch cloce acquaintance with the sun.
But that hat with a light muslin dress
would never do for a lawn party. Con
sequently, poor Josie was in despair,
at least as nearly so as a bright, hopeful,
light-hearted girl of her age could be.
" I must overhaul my wardrobe T' she
thought, the day after accepting the ia
vitation; and with a comical little
grimace she added, " being so extensive
of course I may have forgotten ; many
things no doubt I shall find just what
I want in it."
Next day, accordingly, as soon as her
morning's work was over, and after the
one hour', pruntice on the little cottage
piano which felie never omitted, Josie
pro ceded to overhaul her wardrobe as
she had said, and greatly to her surprise
" bran;l w k'ipsev of the latest stvio.'
n hat to trim it with became the next
momentous 'juestion ; and after thinking
the matter over all day while engaged
in her other duties, Josie was obliged tc
give it up, leaying the hat still poised on
the end of the bedpost, consoling her
self with the hopeful reflection :
"Well, I'll manage it somehow some
thing will be sure to turn up in time fox
Meantime the yellow, time-stained
India muslin was ripped, i.nd washed,
and bleached like the new-lallen snow,
and then made into a charming costume
with rulfles and knife-plaitings in the
newest style ; and indeed it made a dress
handsome enough for any oceasio.a
But, alas! nothing in the shape of trim
ming for Josie'9 hat had yet been found,
and in despair she had almost decideO
on a wreath of wild field flowers and
grasses. They would be appropriate and
lovely tor an hour, perhaps; but after
that they would be fiided and withered,
and teiribly suggestive of a genteel
vnakeshi't. But a kind late, who surely
waits on poor young girls, came to the
On the day before that fixed for thi
lawn party. Joie was hanging out her
few little luces to dry on the rosebush in
front of the house; and while she did
bo. her cie.ir, li es'j youn3- voice sang out
" Gin a body mw t a body

grateful joy pressed it to her hps.
" Where could it have come from?"
she asked, aloud. " Surely some good

And then, without a thought of look

house, upstairs to her little room, and
snatched her hat from the bedpost
where it still hung, being pressed into
Josie's costume tor the lawn-party
was a great success; indeed the soft,
white India muslin was the prettiest
dress there, and the old-fashioned leg
horn hat, with its trimming of two half
handkerchip's ot brilliant silk wound
scarf-wise about it and tied in a bow on
the side, wa9 declared to be quite the
most becoming headgear that had ever
been seen in Centreville.
There was one young gentleman there
who scarcely took his eyes from Josie's
hat for the first half hour after her ap
pearance on the lawn ; then he seemed
to discover that her bright, dark young
face was even more attractive than her
brilliantly trimmed .hat.

of the beast as it charged through the
