The "Mother of SUitcsmon" has pro- ducud a nuinbur of good things from lirst to last— chivalrous iniin, fascinating, soft-voiced \voirici3, tinu horses and the like, but that a popular fad should originate with her is an altogether new dep'arturc.'says the riiilailolphin Times. Everything must have u beginning, however, and who knows, now that tho fairy stone has found such favor in the world of fashion, what possibilities she may develop in this direction'.' Thcso queer bits of petrified earth are indigenous to 1'atrick, a southern border county of Virginia, cutoff from Henry and called, like the latter, inhonor_of the statesman and orator, Patrick Henry. They are not excavated for, but lie loose upon the surface of tho earth, and, though restricted to two or three parts of the county, exist in great numbers and various sizes. Upon each stone a representation of the cross is distinctly though delicately- traced, and a legend concerning them states that a band of fairies, dwelling at Jerusalem during the life of our Saviour, and witnessing the awful scene on Calvary, were so horrificd^by it that they fied to this remote region and transformed themselves into these petrified emblems. This legend has given rise to innumerable superstitious, and from time immemorial tho stones have been worn as amulets by those living in the vicinity in which they are found. The reputation was local, however, 1 •until ;that era in Virginia's history known as the "boom." Then her superstitions and sacred traditions, along with her other commodities, became objects of barter. Speculation fixed its calculating eye, upon the fairy stone and it was taken from its native bed and experimented with in order that it might be rendered marketable. It was soon discovered that no tedious process was necessary for its development. A sharp instrument passing along the outline stamped upon its surface converted the jagged stone into a symmetrical cross, and a little polishing and a plunge into n. bath of boiling oil gave the requisite smoothness and tho rich mahogany color one sees in tho stone of commerce. A tip of gold at the lour extremities and a ring to which a chain might be attached gave Mie finishing touch to it, and when thus simply mounted fairy stones sold for a dollar apiece, The traditions concerning their wonderful working power arc as inexhaustible as the beds from which they arc tak'en, and would furnish endless themes to writers of fairy tales and folklore stories. They are supposed to ward off evil and bring good luck to their possessor, but in order to do this must be worn around the neck and nest to the person. _ HELD UP THE ROBBER. Wnalilncton Vounc ai,m Cots Ilomn and ainkm Himself Out a lloro^ A young ^ashingtonian, recently returned from Chicago, tells a good story, which should properly go under the heading: "Important if True," says the Washington Post. According to his account the young man was going home late one night and' when crossing the Clark street bridge was accosted by"a beggar. On being refused alms the mendicant suddenly developed into a highwayman, and, putting a pistol under the'yonng man's nose, compelled him to she'll out all his persona possessions. Then the highwayman made a bad break, for. -laughing at the frightened victim, he said: -Why, you're dead easy. Dis pop ain't loaded— it's only a bluff." Whereupon the young Washingtoruan whipped out a revol ver that was loaded, and, with dire threats of shooting the- highwayman's head off, compelled him to give back all the plunder. -I made sixty-nine cents by the operation," says the self-confessed hero, in telling the story, "and I put it ia the poor box.' 1 _ _ God has declared mat no man shall do the devil's work without reaping the devil's fruit. DOLABELLE'S LETTER New Things That Will Appear In Church Easter Sunday. Striking NoY«ltle» In Spring:. U»it Goo<J»— The Comlnf SeMon'i Millinery Will Be Boally and Truly Attrac- tlTe—Lenten Gown*. LSpeolal New York Letter. 1 The quiet of the Lenten season ia upon us, but there are dainty confections of the toilette being made ready for Easter-tide when the black gown »nd the modest bunch of violets will be laid aside for the fresh and charming spring costume, with its harmonies of color. In all the new spring goods there is a hint of old-rose, a dash of vivid pink, a suggestion of blue, and an indescribable peachy tint that is to the eye what the fruit is to the taste. These summer tones are the background for large designs, in floral ef- DEMI-SEASON COAT. fects, stripes, or a trailing glory of vines or arabesques in oriental suggestions. There appear to be two leading styles this spring in dress goods—one for day- gowns, the other for evening wear, and they are known as the crepon wrinkle and the Dresden off cat. "Who will wear these wrinkles?" is the question asked at the shop counters. The answer might bo "everybody," for the shops are full of them. They come in lightweight goods to be made over silk linings, as they are quite transparent in spite of a woolly, corrugated suaface. They are. most alluring in black, because they possess that charm of dry goods, the quality of becorningness, like velvet or sealskin, I saw one of those fabrics, a Dresden blue ground, sown with a new kind of "wild oats'' in. red grain, and the ensemble was charming. The Dresden silks are used to make waists for wrinkled crepon skirts. To be in style one must have at least one gown of the large-flowered soft silks that remind ns of the days of Trench opulence, and are not easily Americanized. But I wish I could clip my pen in the rainbow to depict for you the charm of coloring, the blending of bud and blossom, which make them dreams of beauty. I am brought back to earth by hearing some one asking, gently: '-How much do such dreams cost?" Well, 1 must tull the truth; they are expensive, because after the silk for the 1 dross i.s purchased there is another out-lay for the silk lining. This must .be of good quality—it docs not pny to buy inferior lining—it should have the rustling knack, and a slippery surface, and to this is added the bill for rca.kmg. The lowest figure, with much planning, and a reasonable modiste, will be Ira. The fashionable madame will bring it up to S150. In the last the materials will be of a better grade. A now color is called "putty." It is really much tighter than the windowpane' coincnt: more like a cream. When Count do Castullane was here he wore a top-coat of that color—almost as light as canary. It is n popular French shade this season for broadcloth and silk. Dahlia and heliotrope, a new tint of the old color, and a faint green are shown in the new silks and ribbons. Mauve is again worn, in all the tones ranging from -fawn to dark purple. Cerise and all shades of cherry-red appear ia imported goods. But- JLESTES GOTVS. tcr and tomato yellow in the summer L.RSE BOTTLES. 50 OT.. .TALL DRUGG,8TS. .. EMOM-TONIC-LAXATIVE veivots are inucn-aamirca. mixtures are promised as startling features of the openings for Easter. Girls, don't wire your dresses, or wear a crinoline of 1 horsehair, or make your skirts extra wide, or stiffen them with whalebone. I have just seen a trousseau sent home from Paris, and th.ere is not a stiff skirt among the gowns. They are lined with silk, out in, gores that flare easily at the feet, and are stylish and elegant, but not an organ- pipe plait, or even a facing of canvas. The waists of the gowns axe much shorter and without points back and front. The loose waist with pouch front is a favorite for cloth. Seams are again laced in the back, and the under ./•m fastening is used in preference'to buttons or blind fastenings in front. Sleeves are 1 no wider, but flare out on a line with the elbows. A new feature is the wide silk for cutting the sleeve without joining. In China silk it is ?l-25 a yard, and is one yard and a half wide. The new bonnet will not appear on the streets until Easter, in any iium- liers. I have seen a few, and they gave ine the impression that the wearer had been facing a March wind—it was so far back on the nape of her neck. Hats take the other extreme and arc to be brought over the face with a forward tilt. Flower bonnets are to be a leading style. There is a new rose that has every shade but pink in it, which serves to make the crown, and a bit of fancy 'braid for the brim with gold spangles worked in. There arc (lower boas and flower parasols to accompany the bonnet. In everyday hats brims arc to be, of one color and kind of straw, and crowns of another. The new sailor hat is higher in the crown, which is rounder than last year. Tan, dark-blue, tobacco and butter will be the prevailing colors, lilack never fails, and the same may be s:iid of cream and white. Green and heliotrope mixed straws are among the most desirable styles of new millinery. Black dresses with touches of strong colors are announced for the coming season, for the reason, perhaps, that black increases the fairness of a fair woman's skin, and is a better setting for jewels of distinction. Black satin skirts for fancy waists are shown in the shops at lower prices than one can possibly make them at home. A few finishing touches, added at home, render it impossible for the most artistic to discover that they are rtadymade. The fussiness of a modern woman's toilet has often been commented on, but to understand it you should have overheard a dialogue that caught my ear from a theater box a night or two since. The young lady was the typical Huffy girl 'of New York. Feather- trimmed operu cloak, feather boa and two young men atta.ch.es, who were trying their best uot to step upon the girl's trailing draperies. Then it was: "Oh, Charlie, have yon my fan?" The article in question was brought forth by Charlie' from an inside pocket in.his dress coat. ''"Where's my smelling-salts, Aubery?" The cut-glass bottle was handed out.. "Oh, and my lorgnette; which one of you had that?"' So it went on until the. first act was over, and they had not heard a word of it. Now comes the good news that the fan is going out—that, we arc .sufficiently advanced in. civilization to know what to do with our hands—that we have become versed in the graces of SPBIXO BOJIXET. conversation, and no longer need it as a factor in society—so it is relegated to elderly ladies and invalids. The young men whose consciences have been burdened with lost fans and broken fans should give it good riddance. As to service, the exercise of fanning always counteracted the cool wave it brought. Whileskirtsare trimmed very little at the lower edge, a fall of lace or jet beads from the bolt in front constitutes a form of decoration that is very effective. There are also narrow panels of jet or iridescent bends, or of designs in flowers outlined in colored silk embroidery and beads. A great deal of steel and jet is worn and scales of gold or copper are elaborated on the bodice. Tinsel prevails in all new trimmings. A very ligit coat in cream and "putty" broadcloth has made its appearance for'the dcmi-season. Some of these were like the one illustrated with crinkled cloth frontsoi a contrasting color. The square collar and the Shakespeare cut are new features. The collarettes are decidedly stylish. • The Lenten gown is of black cloth -with a lace-dot effect. The collar is ,black 'embroidered chiffon, and the bows are of purple- gros-grain ribbon. The pouch waist is the newest style. The spring bonnet in the illustration is in narrow fancy straw, enhanced with roses, shaded from green to mauve.

At the first diplomatie dinner given by the new president of. the French republic M. Felix Farare created quite a sensation by inaugurating a new custom, or rather hv reviving an old one which had long fallen into disuse. All the ambassadors and ministers present, together with their attaches, both civil and military, had been requested beforehand, through the medium of the "Chef du Protocblo," otherwise the master of the ceremonies, toxion their gala uniforms instead of the customary swallow-tan and white tie. Accordingly, everybody who was entitled to wear one was attired in a gold or silver hraided coat—«ven- French officials— and us the'lrufies had seized the opportunity to put on their gayest drcssee and their most sparkling diamonds,-t/l»e, general i-ffect was fjuitc magnificent.
