A Jolly Evening With the Patron Saint of Old Maid*. | Ererj dog has bis day. and the old maid, not the up to date bachelor girl| who scorns such a nseless piece of fur-, niture In her cozy little apartment as a husband, but the genuinely sentimental old maid, can have a day on the C5tb of Noveml)er If she so desires, for this Is St. Catherine's day. the patron saint of "old njai<^." In France even the twentieth cemury maiden takes her love affairs seriously, and she goes to church bright and early on the 23th of November armed with a bouquet, which she lays upon the altar, offering at the same time a prayer to St. Catherine to send her a husband and "soon, please, dear St Catherine." The American girl cuts out the religious cer»- mony OD this auspicious occasion, and. though her heart be actiing, she makes merry with a party, and if sbe prays It la not like the Pharisee on the street comer, but ki secret lieslde her. couch bed. A Jolly old maid—a namesake, by the •way. of the martyred St. Catherine of Alexnndrla—ls sending out Invitations for a "rally," as she flippantly calls her St. Catherine's jmrty. These IUTI tatlons are In the guise of postcards with little Sally Water of nursery fame weeping and walling fur a young man as the decorative feature, and tbey read: A BT. CATHICRINB'8 RALLY. Coma and help ma elect a husband. La*t nientlnic before the campalan ct Kovemtiar twenty-fltth, nine p. m. Thq^ guests will not L« bidden apparently to the bouse of mlrtb, for In the reception room all Is uncertainty and gloom. Funeral looking gnj moss, caught up with pierced ailrer hearts, drapes the room, mod the only light Is that from nnmberless eandlM beU In sconcea and capdlettlcka btuis jirttbttlMjL Soap ^Mf^ per. Through a central opening depend streamers of red ribbon. The box Is blnck and lettered In red—matrimonial ballot. After greeting their hostess each guest will be asked to vote, which means to pull an end of the ribbon banging from the ballot box. On the box end is attached a piece of paper with a number on It. About tlte room arc men's coats of various slwa with corresponding numbers on them. The girls match their numtwrs to the coats, and the man whose numeral corresponds to {hat of a girl's must try to fill the garment and become the fiance of the owner for the evening. Lots of fun ensues during this casting and recasting of votes. A gome to be played later on Is accomplished by having prepared be- fnreb.tnd as many peanut shells as there are people, each one filled with a paper on which are several letters of n word, and the complenieut of letters Is placed in another shell. The shells are tied together with narrow ribbon. The object of the game is to find the person who has the letters completing the word. The letters of the words are divided evenly between the men and the glrla^that Is, a man has one part of tKe word and a girl the other half. After talking with his partner fi>r ten minutes the girls go out of the room and the men are banded cards on which are the following questions: "What is the color of her eyes?" "The shade of her hair?" "How Is her hair arranged?" "The style of her frock?" "What color Is Itr The man who answers the greatest number of questions satisfactorily is presented with a prize. When supper Is announced St, Catherine Is supposed to have taken pity on tbe old maids,- and, having provided each with a prospective bus- band, all Is Joy. Tbe supper room is brigbtly lighted. In marked contrast with the gloom tliat has previously prevailed. As this company'ts to be a small one, a large round table seats tliem all. Above tbe center of tbe table Is bung a stnall sized cbild's Jumping hoop, bound with gold colbred crape paper, symbolical of the wedding ring. Holding tbe hoop in position are converging strings of white satin ribbon tbat meet in the center and are tied to the bottom of tbe gas flxture. Gradtuted ends of this half Inch ribbon are bung at Intervals downward from tbe boop, and uu tliK ends of each ribbon Is a Cupid, the aborter .loo|is bolding a small god ttt IflTt and tbe longer ones a larger fig- Ut*. In tbe center of tbe table and inder tbe chandelier decoration Is a tflige white frosted cake ornamented frltb an npstanding figure of 8t. Catherine. Tbe Icea are in tbe form of a •llDt with a balo about her bead, and tl^. ^NOMtlo^^u^cuTlsd oat fn FASHIONABLE COLORS. •em* «f the New Wtmtuf of the Latt Autumn Mode. Well, we have mucb to be thanikfa' for In spite of the dlrectolre and empire forms, for tbere Is snch a wld< choice of colors to select ftom f nd tlu chok:e 0/ materiala is also «atte at wide. Beginning with outdoor wear we find no end of mannish dotlu Is mixtures-French worsteds. Scotct tweeds, English cheviots and Japenest ailka. Serges are also to be seen amonj En^Ish goods as well as Roeebery, th» sab. drap dlrectolre, crepe cbaxmeuae, velours cotele. satin Anglais tfiA cash mere Rnase in all sorts of beautiful colors and siutdes. Among fta^ an te be seen many with tbe poetic names oi wistaria, amethyst, madeira and bolt rose as well as elepbant gray and mol« gray. Smoke gray is among tbe new colors. I may as well give the entire list of the syndicate colors and shades lb case any woman may happen to have material on band and is doubtful as tc whether it Is stylish or not In brown there are camel, autsbell and cbestnat. In gray. In addition to what I bare mentioned, one finds steel, dove and snipe. Old blue is a favorite, as ai^ also navy, Alice, royal, cadet and Co- j penhagen. J Greens are very popular, and aipoBf them are tbe empires In two a^atlef besides emerald and hunter gretoi. ID the tans ^here are many shades and tints. Broadcloth in cblffon weight U very ttandaome and much liked in these light abades—champagne, tans in severnl shades, lemon »nd one called starch and another caramel. Some of the tans verge closely upon tbe yellows. Pliim shades are very rich and elegant, and tbey mo from tbe greenish purple of a half ripened plum to tbe ripe fruit Black, of coprse. Is atandard. although I think there wJU be less black and white worn this coming winter than before for a long time. Many of tbe finest black goods luive self stripes, invisible save In certi^n lights. I should have mentioned the beautiful made up suits of Ivoad* cloth In wistaria, catawba. peacock blue and In the.always ladylike oUvea and old rose, pink. Ivory and cream. ^ AH these are for street and visiting, and tbe dresses are made with xtrj abort waists and a Jacket ,or coat fo match trimmed lavishly wltb buttqng and rich appliques of fine castle braid in one variety or other. For home there are many liandsome mixtures of wool and half wool and ill ORAT CASaiURZ ZMFIBE OOWV, half silk or mohair. Tbeae are Men In all the new colors, and tbe pmnellaa are among tbe t >e8t of these. As to silks, they are so ma^iy and so varied In c.oXoT, weave, weight and quality I tbat they should have a whole book to tell of them, but this I may say- while the lighter grades of sUks will be worn, especially for such occasions as require light nnd filmy fabrics, the newest silks are returning to old con- ditlon.s. We s^ faille, that rich a^d lustrous silk, again In black and colors and grosgraln as well as tbe soft taffetas which are unweighted save by their own quality. Black satins are also with us again, and in fact, while some gowns require crepe de chine flexibility, the richer and more sumptuous qualities of silks such as our grandmothers wore will be most desired by good dressers. Coats where they do not form part ^ of the costume may be long, short or. ' in fact, wbatever the fair wearer wants, or it may be tliat sbe lilies g . cape best She can have whatever she I wants, for an are fashionable. The long satin lined 'ttlack coat trimmed with Its rich braiding is very good style. For eve^ day for very ctAA days we see elegant astrakhan and chincbllla clotbs. These are rich in appearance, yet plain in reality, so thst they can be worn anywhere and with anything. I Long broadcloth coats for women are elegant, but tbey dlifer so little from the coats of last season tbat any wo> man who has one left over can with absolute gatciy wear it again. Tbere are tbe loose ones and the scmlfltttng. I ^he new ones have sometimes, but net always, tbe high dlrectolre collar and the wide pointed revers and pocMts plastered on tbe skirt. Thus the dlfftr- enee Is slight One sees tbe pUIn coat collar quite as often and tbe long eeat without any collar still oftener. In hats and hat shapes I see many nap bearer bats, which-remind one of the bats worn lo b^^gone ages, and tbe soft - woolly outline Is q;iite taking. Satin covered h«t«..velvet hata and plain felts. are to .be - trimmed wItiL anything yoa Uke. 'wfBge as weO as plumes and i^lrctjBowen. AM
