That afternoon, among a mroup of girls, he laughingly declared that he would never renounce It until prince-like, he found the Cinderella whose hand wa« as white Mitelace. »nd whose cheeks were the tint of the lining- He spent three mornings Tiiltinjf his Wends in the cottages; and not one of his dear lady admirers could convince him that «he was entitled to claim the sun «hade. At th3 end of the third morning he learned the name of the rightful owner, and went to lay it at her feet. She turned out to be the browneit of nnt-brown maids, for the »un had been beating down on the once fair cheelw for sev- «rml weeks. Thatwai the way the acquaintance becan, and It ripened quickly under the warm §ummer sun. The next win- tor there wa« another ring on the hand that was then almost white enough to mlt the old requirement. But the pink »Uk lining had faded, and tbe laoe lolled, and this year she mn«t needs pick another parasol. What a maw of them lay about her as •he cat In her prettiest morning robe trying 1 to «eleot one. The robe waa In, wd wi'tn » deep ruffle at the edjre. A pale green one has a white insertion, laid over, instead, with a laoe ruffle< The chlflbon are lovely in soft, trlpl* puffs, particularly in white. One that I saw was almost covered by minute ruffles of chiffon, laid over each ruffle run with three narrow satin lines. All of the above are luxuries; but you may got a simpler chiffon parasol with a 'rather plain ruffle, for five dollars. , Some of the black parasols are lar costlier than the perishables light ones; but as they will last longer than one season..they ara in greater ilomancl. The most beautiful of them all, I think, Is a rich, plain black raoire, with a handle cut like a triangle—with' three s j ( } cs _and covered from top to bottom with lines of flna jet. Occasionally, in between the close lines, are set larger pieces of cut jet, shining brightly. Sometimes the handle Is of pluin, natural wood, topped with a clear ball of cut glass or jet. Such a parasol as this costs thirty-five dollars. For three dollars more there is one that has an addition in the way of two heavy and full cream flouneings caught up on the ribs of the parasol. A rich brocade in Bhades of clear green and brown, edged with a black lace flounce, anil with a jet ball at the handle's end, is thirty- one dollars. A black satin with lace ruffles has a pretty trimming in the way of a small white lace ruffle set about six inches above the edge and put on in deep, curves, Another, with the lace edge put upon in similar deep curves, has its heading caught down with a small pink satin ruffle. Sedate back silk ones have broad bands of white silk at the edge. The most captivating little things for the carriage are a mass of small, full lac* ruffles, preferably black. Coaching parasols In plain white silk with dainty Dresden handles are only four dollars, and the sensible ones of shot summer silks with natural wood handles, are anywhere from two to five dollars. Already there is a summer feeling in the air. The -sun is warm enough these May days to arouse within us that longing for green fields and country brooks and faint breezes be- neatH the shade of spreading branches. Talk of garden parties, excursions, outings is already in the air. And since an outing means nothing to a woman unless she has a fresh .new gown to wear thereat, you would find at the depths of those young hearts, could I yon sound them, a great number of Ideas and schemes regarding the first outing gown to be launched before expectant It iB e difflcult to get something quite original. About all that one can do is to get an original rever, or a flare to one's Eton jacket that is a little different from every one's else. The color of your tie, parasol and gloves may be distinctive also. A new Eton has a abort back stop- waist line, and with the •Two of -a Kind.

At the top was a b ff bunoh of violets, loosely knotted with baby loops of white ribbon. Around the top of the lower ruffle a graceful garland of the violets was carried, interspersed with knots of the ribbon. Another big bunch was tied on the crooked white handle. . , „ Of what is the popular parasol made? In one breath I should answer lace, In the next chiffon.

Ih« Owl L»yi Over the Itobln or Any Otlior Bird »• »n Indicator. "Most folks think that when robins and bluebirds and other early birds begin to come back to us from their winter homes in the south it is prima facie evidence that tho backbone of winter is broken and that spring is here to stay," said a Westcliester county observer; "bat they are apt to be very much mistaken when they depend on that for a sign. The instinct of these birds is anything but infallible in that respect. A few days of mild, sunshiny weather in our latitude, even as early as February, are almost certain to fetch the bluebirds and robins to us, and they may be jnst aa certain to suffer for it. 1 never pay any attention to them as prophets. The hawks and owls are the birds I keep my eye on. "The hawks and owls know when we are going to have an early spring, and they will let you know it, too, if you notice them at their nesting. If they get to work at it along in March, no matter if the weather is howling cold and snow deep on the ground, yon may safely go on and make your arrangements for getting- in your garden crops early In tho season. Tho sun may be shining and warm breezes blowing in March, and the robins and bluebirds piping and chirping cheerily, but if the hawks and owls are not at their nest- Ing yet, pity the robins and bluebirds. They will have hard lines before ether- lal mildness is with us for good, I have known the barred owl to nest as early as the 22d of February, with snow a foot deep on the ground. I thought sure the wise bird was away off in its reckoning that time and was making a fool of itself. But it wasn't We had the earliest and evenest spring that year I had ever known. In the memorable blizzard of March, 1888, I noticed another conclusive demonstration of the correctness of the owl's judgment when it came to reading weather indications. The early part of that March was very much the sort of weather we have been enjoying thus far the present month. Not only robins and bluebirds, but other •ong birds had appeared and were exceedingly joyous. The barred owl is a denizen of the deep woods, and Is the chap with the blood-curdling night- whoop voice. In the woods near my place a pair of these birds had for many years had their nest in a hollow tree, and they had been my weather prophets a very long time. During these warm March days of 1888 I found that these owls were not moved to begin nesting, and I couldn't help wishing that I was able to give the song birds a tip, so that they could hurry south again and escape the trouble that I knew must be impending. But they had faith In the sunshine, and when the sudden blizzard came howling and whooping along I guess there wasn't many of them left to wonder what had struck them. During those days of terrific weather my two wise old owls lay low in their hollow tree. The first day after tbe blizzard, when snow was piled almost mountain high around them and there seemed no prospect of there being any spring again, they went to work getting their neat ready for the season's hatching. Although the weather turned o3 warm after the blizzard and spring came on in earnest, not a robin or bluebird appeared again before April. The owls knew their business; the song birdi didn' t. —N. Y. Bun. GRIM COURTROOM HUMOR. Some Good Starlet Collected From V«rloni Court* Acrou the Oc»»D. Qrlm humor has often play«d a con-, •picuous part In criminal trials, and of the notorious Irish hanging judge, Lord Norbury, some curious stories are told. A man was once tried before him for the awful offense of putting out his tongue at a constable. His lordship ordered him to be whipped on three successive days from the jail to the market house. When his lordship bad concluded, the prisoner exclaimed: "The devil thank you; that's all you can dol" Whereupon, his lordship, re- »nming, said: "Hold your tongue, sir; how dare you interrupt the judgment of the court?" and significantly added, "and back again." Of the same judge it was said that he had never been known to shod a tear but once, and that was during the representation of the "Beggar's Opera, when Macheath got a reprieve. It is also related of him that he once asked an eminent special pleader at the dinner table whether tho dish near him was hung beef, because, if so, he would try it. "M y°n try it, my lord," was the bitter reply, "it is sure to be hung." Lord Braxflold, a Scotch judge, once said to an eloquent culprit at the bar: "You're a vara clever chicl, mon; but I'm thinking ye wad be nono the waur o' a hangin.'-" . Unconsciously funny was the Irishman who, on being placed at the bar, felt quite uneasy when arraigned and complained bitterly that he should be in such an awkward position so far from friends and home. Tho judjre felt kindly toward him and said: "Be oalm, young man. You may rest assured that, although among strangers, full justice will be done you." "Be me soul yer honor," groaned Pat, "and it's the fear of that same that thrub- bles me." Put fnnnier still, ip its unconscious humor. Is th» followlnK: Lord Chief Justice Holt; when younfr. was very extravagant, and belonged to a club of wild fellow*, most of whom took an infamous course of life. When his lordship was engaged at the Old Bailey, a man was tried and convicted of a robbery on the highway whom the judge remembered to have been one of his old companions. Moved by that curiosity which is natural on a retrospection of past life, Holt, thinking the follow did not know him, abked what had become of such and such of his old associates. "Ah, my lord," said the culprit, making a low bow, "they are all hanged but your lordship and 1."—Newcastle Chronicle Where Disease A SURGEON'S LIFE IN CABUL.

At, -a recent . meeting of the Indian section of the Society of Arts Mr. John A. Gray put his life with the ameer into a narrative of engrossing interest. beginning with his journey thither, Four-fifths of the country, he says, are rocks and mountains. The mountains vary from fifteen thousand to sixteen thousand feet, except in the Hindu Koosch range, where some peaks are twenty thousand feet The other fifth of the country is exceedingly fertile, with delightful valleys, where there are gardens, orchards of fruit trees and great stretches of vines. There are fields of corn, barley, rice and maize, and patches of brilliantly green clover. The peasants are exceeding clever in the art of irrigating. The manufactures of {.he country are few. One is that of a thick woolen cloth of a brown color, called barak— something like Irish frieze. It is made from camel's hair and is used for coats. The Cabul people have a saying that "You can wear your coat for five years, have it turned, wear it five more, then gl ve it to your servant " Mr. Gray describes the ameer's workshop as extensive for a small prince. It contains a small steam hammer, a stationary engine, lathes, cartridge plant and a minting machine. Trained Hindustanee workmen are brought from India to work the machine* under the direction of Mr. Pyne and Tils European assistants. The townspeople are not pure Afghan*, but a mixed race of Afghan, Persian and Hindu- stanee. They are excellent copyist* but are not satisfactory in the results of their attempts to evolve an original design. Mr. Gray was a month in Cabul attending the two hospitals and seeing a ffreat number of patients. They flock to a European doctor. When be arrived the ameer was in Turkestan, and sent for Mr. Gray to join him. The ameer he found -a man of prov ence. broad and stout He is fair skinned, sun-burned, with black hair and beard. He has a good square head and piercing eyes. Dignified and courteous, on occasion he can be exceedingly fierce, and no chief dare speak or sit in the ameer's presence without permission. The surgeon's work was heavy, remittent ferer decimating the troops. He -had to treat the ameer for a cold, and found Mm a well-informed and most entertaining man. A custom he has struck Mr. Gray at first as unusual. It is that he takes out his artificial teeth in open durbar, cleans them with a toothbrush and then replaces them. Mr. Gray, however, thinks this impresses the people that their king is one who can take himself to pieces. Mr. Gray vaccinated the young prince, who is heir to the throne by right, prescribed for the Sultana, and painted portraits of the royalties.

When I was in America I was touched by the sacrificial life of a mother. Girls do not always marry early there. They like a good time, and their mothers cannot bear to part from them, say from fifteen to twenty-five. But when they marry, they put on heavler.cbains than any English mother, whose love expresses iUelf differently. American devotion to the children is a religion. The husband never dreams of demurring to wife and family quitting him (or months at a time, and sending .him to live at his club, if the babies' health or entertainment seem to call for it The mother nurses them in sickness, (fives up her likes and dislikes, her accomplishments, her amusements, her husband, keeps or drops a circle at the bidding of the irresponsible small things; she is never divided from her young ones, sometimes not night or day, till they are well in their teens; abe is nursemaid, governess, sister, all in one. and it wears her out-sometimes injures thein-this long subjec- "in England, we used to have a similar subjection, but it was o£ the child to the mother. English mothers do not think, they ought to rank second in their own house, except to their husbands, and husbands are not always aware how much of self-abnegation even that involves: Die wife herself hardly knows. She writes for him, intrigues for him, gives up her music, gives up her painting, her reading; she cannot 4o all, and husband and house must come first When t,be has brought up all the children, she thinks her toil may he lightened. The girls can take 8 ome of the housekeeping, the boys can lift the strain on- the family purse. Do they see it. these young- esp.eples'. :sot much. Harry is in no hurry to shackle himself.

We all know that in time of pestilence every precaution is taken, not only to kerp tbe sewers free and open, but even 10 remove all decaying matter from the community. The danger of infection is thus minimized. How few of us wlio pay taxes for the maintenance of sanitary bureaus for the public health think of an equal requirement for our individual welfare. The alimentary canal is tbe Rreal sewer of the hunvm system. When that is dammed up conditions arc generated which invi'.e fevers and such diseases as our nature inclines to.
