Tliwe is no doubt that a big. red, strawberry framed in its green leave-;, kissed by t-hc suu's wanii'tb. is food lit for UK;- S'Oii-i, iinid jjioru Hum that, U is food lit for lovely woman. A woman looks prDt'fj- eatiiug st'.rasvberrkvs. Xbti wlii'tMJiiss tuul shapetiuws o-f licr hand shows to perfection as she lifts each strawberry by its stem 'to her lips, and then pruwx-ds to oat it in the dainty way tha.t a well-bred woman always does, wMt'h, between you aud me, i^ something after 'the faslrton ofra polite kink-it. All the good things that wo have, strawberries, asparagus, green corn are dainty to eat. and tend to make cue luMiMvt'u-1, wilful i means, of course, , beautiful. The tro-iibli.-'is, tliat we don't appreciate our blessings.

So it is w.lrh melons. The English melon Is a cross bi-twecn a caute.lopo n-r.d a «-arermolon. is iloalr oint as If it were gold, and is particularly tasteless aad dreadfully expensive.

Tlie difference in .iwiMonfi'Htlos stand out plainly. Tho Parisian is detenwiued to be pleased; tho Englishman is tletennhied (o be displeased, aud yat-equally datoraiined to 'taste "the little beast," for'fear he might be thought a coward.

If that wure done-we might gutirid of some of'the sickly 'soutimcutuliTy that nowadays is about all the awful brutes that ever deserved to bo put to death by torture. That is not a nicu subject. Let us ' 5 TALK ABOUT THE GIRLS. The type that is interesting nowadays lias undoubtedly resulted from the llower miii.mcd hats. Sh« Is the innocent girl. She'talks about the little cotton frock shu wears In the morning, and in the evening she is fair in white muslin, not the dowdy while musli'n of the- English girl, but the white muslin as lit is mude beautiful by a French dressmaker. It 1ms a wide skirt, ti draped bodice, a lace trimmed fichu, while about the small waist is a narrow girdle of white ribbon. The sleeves are full and big, aud on the da.lnty little head is a straw- hat heavy with- the flowers of the field and' the Iiocliouse. The innocent giri folks-looks "from undur the brim aud wonders "how the gentlemen'know so much," aud "is '.is really true that some of thorn drink whiskey," aud "can anybody have the heart-to say that the pretty girls in the ballet are even a little tiny Wr fast"— and she stu-tters so when she says fast, .almost as if she were saying something beg-luu-ing with a great big D; then she "wonders where inamimn is," and Is a f mid-that she lias done something •wrong, -.-hopes that you will not mis- understnn'd her, but, oh dear!.she Is so frightened." Tee chances are ten to quo that you -hare misunderstood her. The •Innocent 'get-nip is • . A SNARE AND A DELUSION. The tiny feet -in their high-heeled slippers can: dance vigorously until 4 .o'clock in'the morning; the lithe llgurc itha-t Is half revealed and half concealed-Iu the white skirt can assume a bathing .dress that Is, to put it mildly, •rather scant, while tho small hands that seem almost afraid to peep out fron. under tlie long, sleeves cm hold -with certainty -the"-winning hand ait poker, or deftly pile chips a-t a roulette table. The 'eyes that look so frightened from under .that. broad-brimmed : hat easily pick o-uit a' winning horse, and the swept red li-ps that itremble so with the fear of saying something, that will be misunderstood can give a very busiuess- ILke order to a district messenger boy as tx> i:ho placing of -money ou the favorite. If very much danger lies in woman's eyes, it is most dangerous in these innocent ones. The innocent girl would do well on .-Wall street, and she can change her pose with the season, or the fasliiou. All womankind is troubled nowadays because the so-called semi-precious gems have gone up in price, and tlie omerakl, -the gesn That brings good •health awl which makes a white hand look whiter, costs double what it did last year. Advice from a smart girl is: '"Look up all the old brooches and bracelets that were set with garnets, amethysts, emeralds, topazes, and have them yanked out ami reset reset in buckles, in brooches, buit choose tho very best, of course, for a ring." With the coming of the semi-precious gems into fashion has also come au effort on tlwj pa.rt of tho jewelers TO MAKE THE OPAL FASHIONABLE. That an opal is a beautiful gem, nobody will deny,, that iit is unlucky, everybody will affirm who has ever had one. I cau swear to a year of trouble resulting from wva.ri.ng opal pin. A girl 1 know, who siiill'cd at the idea of ill- luck, and.the opal confesses noivad.iys .that s-lie was a fool. Her betrothed gave lier a magnificent opal framed in diamonds. It was put upon her finger wdtli a loving wash, nu-d tills girl who •was uot superstitious, afterwards confessed" that -wMiIn an hour after she assumed it she became conscious of somcbodj' near her, a somebody who waa bad. She said it seemed to her as if a bait were near her, :»r>d as i-f that bat were were a demon at heart. In reality, she had a constant feeling of depression. 'She trietl to get rid of it by saying she wasn't very well and was nervous, but she confessed that whenever . she -took the ring off. Jt secunca as If the supernatural demon -that hovered about her disappeared, and she felt better. One month -after he gave her the ring her sweetheart was drowned; within two months,after the arrival of the opal, misfortune came to her in the shape of n.frightful scan- dal about her .sister; she lost innumerable thiug.s itot she iirlxcd. her fox terrier died, aud an old aunt, who bad .'always promised to.leave her money to ! her. changed her mind and. also her will, aud announced in ir that as her niece did not seem to be cheerful, she wouldn't burden her br adding to her. income, and instead she willed it to -her favorite preacher. This was the last stroke. That girl took her ring and took to the woods and buried it, aud burk-d J.t whore neither man nor woman cau ever find it, and so nobody will get her bad luck. My the bye. it is just as well to ro- member that i.f you sing before you put ou pearls you will weep before yon take them off. There is wisdom in saying "Abracadabra" before you assume a topaz, and then a good fairy will be near you rather than' a bad one. It is all very well 1o laugh at things that you don't nadorstand, au<1 anyhow this QUESTION OF LUCK IS A FUNNY ONE. I havo always -mAintaijucd tliat the mcky man was the one who knew how to smile at. the right lime, and who knew how to lull at the right time, and when he smiled, he made everybody glad, and when he hit he hit straight out from Uic shoulder, aud mudo a number of people sorry. •What shall you hit? All the mean j people, all the cowards, all the liars, all ' the sneaks, all the gossips, and all the scandal-mongers, and mean creatures who say things about women, really.all those who, if they belonged to tho animal world, would be treated as poisonous serpents, aud who are in truth social vampires. What should you smile at? At all the babies, a-t all the pretty aud pleasant women, at their flower-trimmed hiits. their gay gowns, at every good'" story, at ev-ery Interesting book, and a-t the man who pets in the "White House. Who will it be? Ask >fcK!nley, ask Hnnna, ask Grover. but don't ask BAB. Spain is very rich in nil kinds of metals, used, in manufactures, especially iron, copper, tin. quicksilver and lead, aud in 1S05 she exported them to tlie amount of $13.000.000.
