These lavishly braided costumes are very fashionable and the horse show has get the stamp of high style upon them. With braided skirts one finds, besides the braided blouses, blouses made of fine furs, such as seal, astrakhan and sable. These naturally are beyond the reach of most of us. Some of the newest hats are quite modest and very different from those first offered. Flat felt brims seem to have the preference, though these are often tilted up or down a little according to the face beneath. Nearly all have soft made crowns. Draperies of velvet, plush, fur aud ribbon are all seen, aud no end of jeweled or cut steel buckles. Some have no feathers, while others are covered. The tbr jinnies, each falling in a different dilution, seem to please nearly everybody. Flower-de-luce and large pansies, also violets, made of velvet are among the decorations. A few roses are worn, a few velvet carnations and sometimes a close bunch of velvet for- getmenots, but the most of the trimming for hats and bonnets are made feathers and jet and jeweled ornaments, Satin draperies show well.

A STYLISH BRAIDED SUIT. to the -waist line. The velvet is of the richest possible quality. On the high collar and in the corners are very fine traceries of black silk embroidery with the tiniest of cut steel beads sewed like veinings in the leaves and stamens and pistils where flowers are wrought. Where the design is in arabesques it is outlined with these fine cut steel beads. There is something incomparably rich about the steel beads. Jet ones are handsome, and small gilt ones, too, but the first are not- so showy, and the second are not retined in some way, while che steel ones are as beautiful as stars in a frosty iky They sparkle on the velvet, these steel beads, but it is with a chastened sheen that makes the garment elegant ds well as beautiful. Some of the new velvet aipus have ribbon to match twisted into rnfdike rolls with bows in the back ami front, and these bows are fastened iu the ceuter with cut steel, silver and imitation diamond buckles so finely made that they are almost works of art. Some of the garments have fancy buttons to match the buckles, aud these aru set on generally more as ornaments than for their usefulness from a practical point of viuw. Some of these velvet capes are made of startling colors, such as cardinal, ce- ri.so, burut orangu blue and black. Sometimes combinations are made of two distinct colors, like gray and saffron, magenta and gray, red and tan. beige aud bright blue, and so on. Black velvet as a material for rich wrap.- is not limited to wraps uuil mantles, for sonio of the prettiest and must stylish jackets, street blouses, etoiis aud ' ' three- quarters" are made of it. As a general rule, all these garments are trimmed with rich silk passementerie, though some are embroidered with heavy silk in the raised designs so popular a few seasons ago. The designs are picked out with fine cut jet beads or jet and steel mixed. A very few have narrow gold braid in elaborate oriental work, but few persons look well in such striking garments, and it is better to be too conservative iu such matters than err on the wrong side. These garments are generally of black, though there are a few in dark colors. They will bo very popular, especially for young ladies. A few of them have open bell sleeves edged with some sort of fur, while others have the usual sleeve of the season for coats, and that is a medium sized plumes tipping this way and that as if blown about by the wind. The coloring is very vivid in the most of the bonnets, toques and trimmings to the hats. Coral red is a new color, and when a twisted roll of that is put about the brim and a crown made of tbe same and a high black paradise plume waves in the air it makes a toque of which any black eyed lady might be proud. The soft Tarn O'Shanter puffed crowns are decidedly fashionable. Some felt bats with flat brims have the place for crowns cut out, so that a velvet one may be inserted, 'aud a plaiting of felt is made to stand up all around. In such a case a folding of velvet or plush reaches around the front, upholding the thick velvet loops that stand up high and stiff at the back. The caps to the sleeves and basque had stiff featherboniug to make them look almost rigid. A new idea in skirts is a sprung flounce reaching up about to the knee. In some cases the flounce reaches around the back breadths, only leaving the front one smooth. It is uot pretty, but has found some favor. Plush in rich bright colors has been made into attire for grand functions where it is uucessary to wear high necked gowns. One of ruby plush had the skirt plain but rather fuller than is the usual size at present. There was uu open jacket, bound with chinchilla fur on the sleeves. caps, high collar and arouud the whole basque. Under this was a shot blue and white taffeta vest gathered very full and with a draped belt. Among the ue\v silks are thick and heavy white aud cream armuve, peau de soie, satin duchesse and corded silk, HOW TO ASSAY GOLD. An Intercstine Process Fully and Simply Explained. [Special Con-eSDondence-1 SAX FRAN-CISCO, Kov. 24,—If there is a subject of more importance to the engineer than the gold mine itself, it is the determination of the value of an ore in dollars and cents for the purpose of inviting or discouraging further investment. Technically, this test is known as "an assay." The rules which govern it are easily acquired aud are within tbe understanding of any one, regardless of a knowledge of i-heuii-srry or other science. The subject is best treated under the 1-.'.-• ad of two division.-: First, the securing aud prc'iuiriug of an average sample : second, the assay proper—that is the valuation of this .-ample. Of the cwo the importance »f -swuring a truly representative «impk- ia the greater. Excepting for the pnrpoj-es of the sharper it would serve little to know tbe value of any one selected and particularly rich sample. This is the point that has caused many an inexperienced enthusiast a fortune. The methods for sampling are many and ingenious, consisting in cases of delicate and complex machinery. The one most used, though primitive and laborious, has for its recommendation both handiness and accuracy. A pile, or heap, of ore. is to be tested. In such cases where the ore is to be shipped or moved it is an easy matter to throw every tenth or twentieth shov- elful on to a barrow, to be laid aside for separate and further treatment. Otherwise the digging of two channels at right angles to each other and passing through the center of the heap makes it possible to select in the same manner as before an average sample, representing the value of tbe entire body of ore. The sample is then mixed by shoveling and reshoveling it upon itself until finally it is piled up in a round pointed heap, approximating the s,'iape of a cone. This is roughly quarter :| - Two opposite quarters are considered as representing the true average of the entire sample, of which, of course, there is now but half of the original quantity to deal with. This process of mixing and quartering is continued again and again until the original sample has been cut down to a small one, weighing in the neighborhood of 10 or 12 pounds. This quantity is then put into an iron mortar and alternately ground and sieved until all of it has passed through a sieve of such fineness that there are GO apertures to the inch. Again the ore, now in the form of a- powder, is heaped, mixed and quartered until the operator arrives at a quantity so small that it can be read- DERFUL MEDICINE FREE!

Fivo or six ounces are considered plenty aud are sufficient for a dozen verifications of the result. By means of a balance several grams of the ore are weighed. ' The delicacy of the foregoing operation is woi'tby of special mention. It is not that theoretically the result of the sample approximates the value of the original heap, bnt practically it is the exact value of the main body of ore, though, depending on the size of the latter, the final sample under consideration is some millionth part of that which it represents. The ore having been weighed, it is brushed into a small earthenware saucer about four inches in diameter and known as a scorifier and is capable of withstanding practically any heat, A furnace is readily masoned out of a few rocks and some clay.

To make this cushion, first cut a strip of very strong muslin 2'2 inches in length and II in width. Of this make a bag and stuff very full and fight- with bran. The beauty of a cushion depends largely on how well and skillfully it is filled. It should be very hard and" firm and the corners well filled out. For the cover select a piece of electric blue satin. On this embroider in filo floss a design of buttercups in solid Kensington stitch. Let the leaves be of a dulCpale shade of olive green. Of this satin make a cover to exactly fit the cushion, cut in same proportions given for the muslin bag, leaving it open at one end. Stitch firmly on machine, then turn and see that the corners are sharp and clear. Slip the cushion in and overhand the end very neatly with fine silk the shade of the satin cover. Make a full bos plaited frill of satin ribbon of the same shade and five inches in width. Sew this firmly all around the cushion.
