Being.•ware of tho Influences surrounding a jJ;'•'banquet, if I did not know of the ab- 4v'-ltinnions habits of my friend from Ten Mue«, I would have thought on read 4B(f his speech that ho had gotten •pMwnvhat under the influences tha NiTectcd another Tonnesseenn that : tRfVrellnpr man told me about meeting '••ee in Tennessee. This travel ing man was sitting on a counter to a, merchant about selling Home poods.

"Well, if you should go buck to Kaufman and see anything of John, tell him if he needs anything just to draw on me." Now, under the influence of one of these New York banquets, with all they have good to cut and the accompaniments, one feels by the time that speaking begins like tellinp the rest of the world to draw on him. Therefore I, on my own motion, would never quote a banquet speech on anybody, because I do not think it exactly the fair thing.—Chicago Tribune. French Waists. Pongee silk shirt waists of the natural ecru shade arc imported by the best, modistes to wear with blazer suits in the summer. They arc macle in the simplest manner, with fulness gathered at the neck and waist in front and back, and are mounted on a fitted nnd boned lining of silk. A box plait two inches wide is down the front, with a row of brier-stitching done in, navy-blue silk near each edgvs.nnd hold- Ing button-holes for three pearl buttons, which are regular shirt buttons. A turned-down collar of the pongea doubled has a single row of stitching, and is mounted on a neck-band so wide that three buttons are required to fasten it. The bishop sleeves, nearly a yard wklo, are very long*, and have a fitted lining, to which they are taken up in a plait at tho elbow to gives the proper length. They are gathered to straight cuft's of ponrpp four inches deep when doubled, brier-stitched in a single row, and fastened by three buttons. The edge of the waist goes inside the dress skirt A nary-blue necktie and a ribbon belt with a pearl buckle complete the waist for wearing with blue sacking or serge suits. For those who prefer washable materials for similar shirt waists, Madras ginghams and linen batiste are used in the ecru pongee color, which is sometimes called "linen-color" in the shops.— Uarpor'.s Bazar.

A curious novelty Is a hat which resembles a butterfly shape. The crown is Panama bluck moiro with a paste buckle in tho middle, represents the body of tho butterfly. Tho wings aro black moire bows edged with real lace the color ot the crown, ami white strings come from uuder two bunches of violets which adorn the back. The newest sleeves for evening 1 wear aro either formed of two puffs, one overlapping and the other caught up on tho outside of the arm to form a bow, or aro miulo of a series of frills, one over the other. The "complexion veil" is a novelty of palu pink Hiiss'iig not sprinkled with black spots and delicately perfumed. It is \ r ory bct'Oinintr to pule blomlo.s, yet there is nothing so pretty us tho regulation black dotted net. Some of the latest bonnets have immensely wide strings uJg'ed with lace, which form :t wcurf under the chin. One of the whims of fashion is to wear u bJuek moire ribbon, an inch wide anil :i yard and a quarter Ions, around tho ncclc, and f us tuned with a gold slide. To thi.s is attached a tiny watch or a fancy,! it tie gold bottle lilled with a favorite perfume. One of Worth's fancies is the use of foulard Bilk with a white ground and colored figures in combination with blayk crepon. Among the new lacos are those that are worked over the pattern with gold thread; others studded with jet and embroidered with colored silks and heavy laces, such us English silk guipure patterns of point dc peno and .Russian arabesque. These arc used us Hat bonlerings, aiul on waists for collars, berthas and vests. Lemon is the latent color in lace. With the revival of checks comes tha old-fashioned Louisine silks so durable and soft for summer dresses. Wide ribbed pique is one of the fabrics for cotton gowns. They come in pale colors as well as white, and are •made up by Paris dressmakers in very fanciful styles, trimmed very elaborately with lace and ribbon. Miroir moiro antique is perhaps the roost beautiful silk for evening wear. It is delicate in coloring', and has a rich sheen which shows to advantage in tho gaslight. Shot silks are much prettier than they were last year, and quite as popular, A now and beautiful material for trimming dresses is satin muslin. Tho- surface !s glossy like satin, and the texture is light and almost as transparent as India muslin. The most fashionably ribbons are moiro antique with a satin stripe down the center, and plain moire ribbons spangled' with jet sequins in wavy lines, Seamless French waists are the correct thing for thoso who aro slim enough to wear them. Velvets are to continue in favor through the season, especially for trimmings, and dozens of yards of velvet ribbons are used on challie, foulard and China silk dresses, New batistes come in tinted and white grounds spotted with small flowers and striped in open patterns like drawn work.—N. Y. Sun. rants. In fact, Jack was especially pleased with several French disheft, which he had tasted in Paris, while I was particularly delighted with some fine old wine. It equaled, I thought, that of my father's, which I had been unable to procure since I left the old mansion and ongag-ed in business in New York. During the meal the proprietor, the little man, had personally set tho tho dishes before us, and politely waited on our table, as a compliment, he said, to his distinguished guests. I gave him an order for as much of that wine as ho could give me, to tn,ko with me. The bottles were brought from the cellar, and in a generous way, I paid him a generous price, 1 tfavo him twenty-live dollars for the dinner and wine, to return Jii.s compliment, and my friend followed my example. We started upraiit on our journey refreshed after oar dinner, and reached tile colonel's house long after the darkness had fallen, lie immediately ordered lunch for us. "Thank yon," I said. "Do not trouble yourself, colonel; wo have just had dinner at the hotel on our way here." "Hotel"' he exclaimed, "where did you sec one?" "Along the road a few miles back," "JJobli. 1 There isn't a hint of a hotel on that road, and I know it pretty well," "I will leave it to .TacV I said, turning to him, and Jie readily verified ray words. "Nonscuse!" the colcncl said, "tho only house on thot pat): up there is tho plasterless shanty of ohl man I]abbs, the mesmerist, and ho iia.s undoubtedly mesmerized you into liis pluco." "I will prove my words riyht here," I said emphatically, "I boujrht some of his excellent wine, and paid for it, too." I opened the parcel, and to my surprise the bottles which, when the old man had them, were so nicely corked and labeled,were now only plain brown glass ones, entirely without labels. I poured some of the contents into a glass, and it filled up with water, pure and simple. The colonel laugrhed, "Just as I expected," he said. "Hut listen," 1 said, "I'm sure we hafi something to eat, What do you suppose he gave us?" "Boiled herbs that .he gathered in the field, and dry bread, just what he lives on himself." It was true. Wo had boon the victims of a mesmerist, and had foasted on an imaginary dinner. —Detroit Free Press. CHOCOLATE DAINTIES. STORY OF A LIGHT. AN IMAGINARY DINNER. It Satlslled, Though Not as Substantial M It Seemed. It was a beautiful afternoon, but the •un was beginning to dip in the west as we rode leisurely on our way to Col. Marr's stock farm, whore we expected to find food aud shelter. Jack, my companion, and a friend of college days, and I had started early that morning from the city on our way to the colonel'*, where we were expected about noon. But the country being new we had stopped many times and discussed tho possibility of extcnslvo land schemes. In the interest of this topic we had overlooked the fact that we had been almost all day without food, and as we rode up to a small cabin I felt a strong sense of hunger. A little old man, with a head disproportionately large to his body, sat on a. bench outside of the weather-beaten shanty. We could see him looking steadily at us as we approached. As I encountered his small, steel-gray eyes which were fixed upon us, I felt » strange sense of hunger. Instantly we halted and the old man in a mild but positive voice said: "Come in, gentlemen. I can furnish, you with anything in the eating line that you wish." We wore both astonished, as the idea that he could servo us with a meal, the kind we were used to, in that tumbledown shanty, with bare floors and dusty windows, was absurd. I expressed ray surprise at his Invitation, and looked again at the house. A colored waiter with a white apron appeared in the door. This we thought elevated the place, and at a second Invitation we dismounted and were going to walk in for a meal, but the little man asked us to sit on tho bench, as dinner would not bo ready for half an hour. "That will detain us lopger than we anticipated," I said. "Jtwill put us on the road after dnrk." Jack looked at his watch: "It is already half-past five." At this the little man laughed pleasantly. "By iny watch it is only lour o'clock, and I have the right time. My friend, you must be mistaken, look again." Jack consulted his time-piece, and acknowledged that he had been mistaken. The man told us many pleasant stories, and we enjoyed the time until dinner was announced. The proprietor led us throng-h the door into a room a great deal larger than I supposed the size of the house from without warranted. It was filled with tables, and waiters were hurrying back and forth with large tray* of dlshe*. We were seated at a table and ware The Two Drav* Occupant* of the Tower nf AXlnot'4 L«<lg*«. On Monday, April H, 1851, an east •wind rose in fury until it blew a gale. At that time there were three men in Minot's Ledge lighthouse—tho two as- I sistant keepers and a visitor. It was an octagonal tower, supported on iron piles driven five feet into the ledge below, and held tog-ether by braces Every time a storm raised the waves tho lighthouse shivered ominously. When this historic storm first arose the visitor on the lighthouse became frightened, and signalled to Cohasset for a boat to take him ashore. By noon he was on land, not a moment too soon for safety. On Tuesday tho gale increased in violence. Tho wind had shifted to tho northeast, the most dangerous quarter from which the elements could hurl themselves against the old tower; for the waves gather resistless fury, traveling along miles and miles of unobstructed wind-swept sea. Soon the gale became a hurricane, and tho frail lighthouse was so buried in seas that on the sixt -enth the anxious watchers on the Cohassot shore could not distinguish it. During the previous night the lighthad burned as usual, and the question was passed from lip to lip, from eye to eye: "Will the light burn to-night? Will tho lighthouse stand?" About four o'clock in tho afternoon of that an-xious day the platform of tho tower, which had been built upon the braces, washed ashore. Then the keeper, who happened to be on land, knew that the water had risen within seven feet of the tower. When the time for sunset came tho excitement on land was almost past endurance. Would the light—a cry of joy swept from a hundred throats: "There it burnsl Thank God!" Fitfully through the breakers and tho spume, the light gleamed far out to sea. It was the dying warning the living. Nine o'clock came! The hurricane increased, but tho light was steady. Ten o'clock! Still the grand old light shone forth upon the heaving waters. At one 9'clock on the morning that followed, just at tho turn of tho flood, when the outstreamlng tide and the incoming hurricane met on the fatal ledge, tho mad tolling of the lighthouse bell was heard. After that, no sound or sight pierced the fury of tho storm. The lighthouse had been torn from its post of duty never to be seen again. When the gale was over, people put out from the shore to visit the spot where the tower had so bravely withstood the perils of a hundred storms. The appearance of the twisted iron piles indicated that it had bent to the leeward by the gale, lying over the wild, foaming waters until it had gradually been submerged. Up to the last moment the heroes within the doomed beacon had trimmed and fed the light. These two men—a German aud a Portuguese, whose very names are unknown—died gloriously, and are reverently remembered. "They hung to duty to the last," said the present keeper of Minot's Ledge lighthouse, and as he said it, the indomitable spirit of the two who met their awful fate in the same waters that flowed beneath his feet, seemed to glorify hiw face. Under the starlight and storm tha old light had done it» work of beneficence and blessing; a beacon to cheer and guide; a lesion to every beholder, of loyalty to duty and belpfulneia to •oul* In p«riL—Yonth'i Companion. Perfect Cap of Hot Chocnl»t« ana Sao. cemifal Chocolate Vllliugt. For a cup of hot chocolate that will be both food and drink in its rich consistency, take an ounce of grated chocolate. Tako an ounce of chocolate for each cup unless there arc more than six. After that less is needed. When it is melted, which must be done in a little cold milk if grated, pour on a half pint of sweet, new milk boiling; add sugar to taste, cover and set over boiling water if you use a bain marie; if yon have only a plain saucepan, set it where tho fire is not too hot, and stir while it slowly simmers about five minutes. Now, if you will take the wire spoon with which you beat the whites of eggs and whip the mixture, it assumes the 3i;rlit, creamy smoothness that is so in- vitinjf to everybody. Whip some cream to pile OH top of the chocolate after it is in the cups. Chocolate filling/orhtyer cnkesliould be made in the proportion of one egg to every two ounces of chocola.te. Melt the chocolate over boiling water; beat the whites of the eggs to a foam, and then beat in gradually two tablespoon- fills of powdered sugHr; you must beat until it is stiff enough to stand alone. Then beat in the melted chocolate gradually. This is not only tlio filling: between the layers of cake, but is right ' for the icing. You can prepare the filling differently if eirgs are scarce by allowing equal quantities of sug-ar and chocolate; htir the sujrar into the molted chocolate and flavor to taste with vanilla. For a delicious Wane mange allow two ounces of grated chocolate to a quart of sweet milk. Here the same note concerning the prating holds pood; if you are careful to blend the chocolate perfectly smooth before putting it into the boiling milk tho process is not of consequence; the idea is to have the chocolate thoroughly incorporated so that it may be quite free from lumps. When you have thus amalgamated, so to speak, the boiling' milk and chocolate, add four heaping tablespoonfuls of cornstarch that you have rubbed into a smooth paste with enough cold water to make it pour easily. This mixture you must allow to boil at least five minutes, or even longer, if the least rawness of taste remains. Take the eaucepan from the fire, add sugar to make very sweet, and vanilla extract to taste. This reeeipe fills a three-pint mold. Serve with plain custard sauce or with cream. It should be perfectly smooth and free from lumps. A chocolate pudding that is both economical and pretty, besides being palatable, is made of powdered ! cracker crumbs. Use three-quarters of a cupful, which you .soak a few minutes in water, and then squeeze dry; to this add three ounces of chocolate dissolved in a little cold milk, a pinch of salt, three-quarters of a cup of sug-ar and the same of butter, beaten with the yolks of three eggs, pour in a quart of milk, stir all together. Hake about a quarter of an hour or twenty minutes in u rather quick oven. iSet aside to cool, a.nd then put a meringue on top made of the whites of off(is and a cup of powdered sugar; put it back in the oven to brown slichlly. —Boston Globe, What a~ ~ Lovely Struck by the surpassing fairness of some quickly vanishing Beauty, how many hundreds of times you, my sister, have made the above remark to your friend as you passed along the street; but did you once Btop and ponder how-that complexion which you so greatly admired was acquired, and how a similar oae might be secured for yourself ?

Rut the Lake Georgians do not, I believe, speak of "bean shucks," as people do in parts of England. Perhaps, after all, the apparently American proverbial phrase, "not worth shucks," is older than Jamestown, for the shucks of Indian corn are the only shucks that are valuable.
