[coevniaiiT, 1SSO.] The popularity of the Louis jacket with it<i ripple back anil rovers is beginning- to wan. There is too much sameness about the Louis styles to please the capricious Parisian for a very Ion™ 1 time, uJid when Pni'is has 'frowned upon a prevails:}? f;ushion it is not. pcnnitted to prevail much long-er. The bolero a.nd Piffavo admits of much more variation; but the greatest objection to the old style with ripple 'buck was the fact that it made the wearer look old, n oireurastaiiee which would ruin tho most beautiful gown ever devised. Only the rprightliest kind of a youthful "maid dared .to wear it. The bolero, on'the contrary, gives or.c m almost intajuile nir, and is becoming' to most people, whether old or young. Even stout women look 'veil in this jacket if it is not rounded oil too sharply before it reaches the waist. With, the advent of boleros we ru-c also to have somi'thiug' new in belts. The belts arc really wide pirclles, and are macli: ol' black velvet or satin. Some of them fasten invisibly, others with fancy buttons. Th>i first- of the three jackets in the illustration has this girdle made in three sections and fastens with miniature buttons. The material is mauve crepon, which is la-itl in plaits with a strip O'C cream lace insertion across the bust line. The sleeves ai-c also laid in plaits at tho top.

A lace bolero can always be added to a costume of any material, a.nd, togettisr with a pretty sleeve trimming, it is considered a tmffi'-jient decoration for' the whole dress.

"There was a real old-1'asliioned fireplace in the waiting room of the hotel, and here we used to gather every evening- "to smoke our cigars, compare cotes on the sportof the day, and "swap yarns." I remember in particular the story that Lloyd told us, the night before we parted. It was unique and weird. Lloyd •was a tremendously big-, athle'tio. lei- low, and he had a way of saying things in that deep bass voice of his that made them doubly impressive, He had been sitting for some time with bis chin on his hand, looking itead- ily'into the open fire. Benson had been telling- a rather commonplace ghost story, and the rest of us had dutifully Oh-d and ah-d and pretended, to shiver nt the proper laces, but Lloyd said never u word. . When silence settled upon the little group once more, however, Lloyd E at up in his chair, uncrossed his feet, and remarked: "Xow, boys, I am going to tell you a ghost story the like of which you never heard before, and the best of it is it's till true, for It happened to .me : «actly. as I shall t«ll it. •••-.. ' "When I was in Sweden, some 15 years •ago, I had nn opportunity to do eon- -Biderablo gunning, as my friend and host was a-landed proprietor and controlled the hunting and fishing rights of a large and valuable territory. In this tract .was one large lake, called;Lake I-'ryksclr.l, which abounded in fine fi-sj, 'particularly pike of a.remarkable size. Hovering over this lake' almost conr stnntly were' a few pairs of whitish- gray birds which the Swedes call sea- eagles — great', magnificent, •-broad- winged creatures', whose food consisted of the large fish that were so plentiful ill the waters of their habitat. • • "I had a strong desire to shoot one of these birds, although I knew them to be held in almost sacred esteem by the Inhabitants, who believed that if anyone should kill one of. them, he .would be haunted by the sprite .of .the bird as Ion" :vs he lived. .But not being .the least bit superstitions, my passion for obtaining a specimen of each new bird or -animal. I came across in my travels' easily overcame nil scruples, and I forthwith-laid my. plans to secure one of the sea-eagles. ."I -slu-.ll never forget the . circumstances connected' with the shooting cf this bird. It was a bright, still afternoon 1 , t had been lying for hours behind a la-rge rock on the shore of tho lake waiting for one of the birds to come within range of my fowling-piece. A .pair of them were sailing hither and thither above the .surface of .the lake,, waiting .for an opportunity to pounce upon some pike or other fish that m'ight be'suun iiig'itself at-the top of the water. At length I saw one of the eagles drop like a shot from a height of.more than'. lOO.feet, arid strike, the water in .a cloud of.'foam-acttf spray;. The next moment he rose, bearing a good-sized fish in his talons, and flew heavily toward the shore. My heart 'began to thump nguinst my ribs, as 1 saw thatyif the eagle held to his course, he .would pass almost directly over the place where I lay concealed. Crouching down, I waited for the shadow which I knew must precede the'bird, as he was flying between me and the sun. "At length- 'it came—a big, slowly- traveling blot.of darkness—and the moment it passed me on the shingle of the beach, 1. leaped up, .with both barrels of mv gun cocked and'ready. There, 'fcc-H-ceiy '40'yards away, and a little to the left, the eagle loomed in the clear,, sun-lit air.'

Eutwhenlturnedagaiu-theeyea ( had glared, and the. magnificent white eagle was stretched out in the motionless beauty of dea.th. ... "When I took my prize home, my host said, sadly, and more than, half Eeriously: 'I am'sorry you killed th» bird, lie will haunt you to the day of your death.' T laughed carelessly, yet somehow my heart misgave me, and it was weeks before I could get over a certain apprehensive uneasiness that pursued me even in my dreams. "1 spent the ensuing winter and spring in Stockholm; but' with the return of another summer my friend in the coun- .try invited: me most cordially to repeat mv visit at. his fine old estaW, and as I knew he really wlinted.me to .come,. 1 bad neither heart nor reason to decline. "The \yeaUicr during July was ex- ceedingly'''warm, aud during cur frequent fishing trips to Lake' Fryksdal mv friends, nnd I often, refreshed ourselves betaking a dip in.thc.clearwa- ters" One-afternoon, as we were fishing-off shore near.the place .xv^cre I kad'.shot my. eagle, I.soi.d to ay.hort with bartering triumph: ."We 1, a year has passed, an<U haven'tseen the ghost of that sacred eagle yet!' • "'Never :mind,' was the reply, >ou will.-see.it yet, Mark my words. It will come to you some time when you least expect it.' " "1 laughed .and proposed that we take a swim, as the sun was getting up very .warm;' nn'd the fish were not biting at nil My friends assented, so we undressed and plunged into tbe lake I clove straight.down, and, catching hold of the jaggeil cud of a large rock, opened my eyes to'look about .me for a mo- th~a£ just as tbe water-ghost was about to strike me in the face, a lithe, white form flashed in between, a strong hand seized my arm-arid T-n-ns draggedforci^ bly up to the surface of the water. Then I lost consciousness, and the nest thing I remember was being rolled over and over on tbe back and punched in ti» ribs and then- opening my eyes on the pale, an.\-jous face of my friend,who had dived down and saved me. "When, an hour or two later, I told bim the story o£ my deep-water ap- arition, lie smiled incredulously, even ashesaid: 'Did I not tell you yon would see it sometime?' . • ' . "But the mystery was solved a few- days later, when, picking up' n. Stockholm paper, I read the- following paragraph : •"A GHASTLY TROPHY. "•A recent writer tells what may be. truly regarded as one of the most curlou«: Incidents of natural history. In som* oT the Swedish lakes, he says, 'arge bird* of . -rrcy- are In the habit of swooping dow* on the. pike tmsking at:the surface .ofth* water In these cases, If the pike be rhore- powerful than the 'bird, the latter, unabte. to extricate his talons, Is borno to tho bot- torn and drowned. Incrcdtble as the storr. seems, Eckstrom. Rev. Mr. Moller, an! other writers, state that 'he flesh of the pike heals with the talons of tbe bird W , Ua back, while tho bird becomes converted- into a skeleton, which is carried a.bout by the pike. ,0ne skeleton, which had lot* been exhibltca by a pike In Lake Wett* had acquired n Rreenish tinge .and wa* r^rded by </ie nshcrmen as a harbinger of misfortune.' " ,, t .-er, if I live to be a hundred, will the'sight that met my eyes at *na.t instant be effaced, from memory.
