••we only A WOMAN'S POCKETS. Bab Treats of the Dressmaker's Autocracy in Providing Them. Florida. Orange couuly, N. Y., August A* O.VH- party cuinsdtsts of more wouK'n except from Saturday to Monday, have an opportunity to do, nut y cousklerable talking, but considerable •Iblublng. Kven the most talkative woman uses up her chatter hi time. And UK-U slit) rests aaid wnte 'far f.reah am- •muiairf™. The hhimkfiiig Is done- d-m'lnp the resting period. Ou Saturday we jtoddciuly become conscious of the importance of mankind, for we arc "n- iormcrt that the gentlemen will arrive on the 0 o'clock train. The two gentlemen consist, of Vnclo Timothy 1 * brother, who is over TO. and Aunt Maria's Willie, who U T.l. and clerking in the clly. The entire household gets on its best clothes and goes down to meet them. \Vlllk' i.i a,n ambitious youth, given to fancy swirl's iijid ull!l1 ' ;1 ai "--' lh ' e ' u ' 11K|K ''' raouey enough to go to college next year.' I avpect his ambition, but I do wish lha.t hi' would 'not stutter ami blush so every time yon spoke to him, and thai he would not 1111 his pockels with all sorts of tilings. When lie walks arou-.iil he hari a lumpy appearance, and unless Aunt Maria gets-; hold «f lilm and manages to make him uu- • load, his coat never sets smoothly on Mm.

She expects: you -to tack your liiuidker thie-J up your sleeve, Or to keep it in your [Kicketbook, and she counts on your being willing to carry -your purse -in your hand aud cha-uce losing It-. With the average dressmaker I have a " standing quarrel on the subject of pockets. A pocket 1 will have, 1 Insist upon having, a-nd I do get. Of course, I don't want to put-in my pocket all Uie things .that a man carries In his five or seven or .ulno, or wbail«ver number belongs to him. but still I like to know that there Is n place in which I can slip a love letter or a bill, or keep the always nec- <*sary hatirphW A purse, n knife, a . landkorchlef, a watch, a pencil, a memorandum book and a snuff bos are only H 'tew of -the tJiiugs that men carry in •their pockets. -Some-men-have looso bite of candy, and when this candy gets covered with snuff or tobacco, it. lacks the delicacy of taste It had when it atarted. Some other mem cany a whole • writing get-up; that to, fl small pad of paper, ouc of those pens that holds irj:. and is stopped up when you wish to use it,«nd a collection of postage stamps ' Other men Indulge In. cigarettes and cards, while still other men wear on those double clmins and conceal In their pockets not only great bunches of knys but often two and sometimes three watches. The three watches are worn to see what-time It is in America, Bag land and Ilussia. Speaking of snuff, wlilch the extremely smart, inidiHo-agcd man !<5 Just now taking up again. It.is the most dlfflcul* thing TO FIXD A GOOD SNUFF BOX. Just try if you want to give one to wmobody. Y 9 11 Cllu BCt l)OQb011 boxei< you win got slump' boxes, but a snuff box ought not to have a hinge, for the itaiitr collects In it and makcw the shut ting somewhat difficult. Then, too, : •nuff box must lie (hit, so that it wil not make the waistcoat bulge, and ye it must hold suniciont snuff for at leasi lialf a day. To be very swell, you rims make a,n effort to get the Pope's snuff I bave smelt it. and its odor is decidedly good. I am told that the Pope has a preat liking for perfumes, consentient!} the snuff nsed by him Is not only madf of the uuent tobacco, but It is pcrfumet with iittar of roses. Baltimore Is prom of the fact Mint it I* made there n-m 1 under the direction of no good a judgi of snuff as .Cardinal Gibbons. 1 It is Interesting 10 know, speaking o: ' pockete k aiifl the things that are needful that tliAiilwuilnable bag made of net Hng, wMfih It* sww ta niost of tlio cit ie« nowadays, and carried by matron? • who go out to buy a lot of ;.:i:lo things had Its birth not-to Philadelphia, no Jn Boston, not in Xew York City, but U Rome, and was fancied by the stern Roman matron*. mntroiw carried tlon to the netti Roman matron*, they had some way •Jilnm, which wa.s really their stays,,sc that a pocket was permitted near tin heart, and in It. they carried their mos precious Jewel?. French/ladles of tlr old days can-led a sort of oval bag rnad of leather, and sot wltn uncut gems The Snxon dames had velvet- purses nud the Normans, when they went tr .

In which there was'supposed t be money to givf. away.' .Tust now.f I many of us would like to meet ' iiouey 1 to burn 'or 'offer without lutcr- wt to her frleudsi. 1 often wonder VHAT EVE DID WITHOUT A , .lie the original inventor of tilts TsefiiTartlcle? Did she really lirst call t the,mu!tum lu parvo?

From UIP Hegiuiilug of the world WOMKX IIAVK ADOliliD RASCALS \viiv-; iaiterestvd lu Abel'.' Who cares for the good -boy of the family? Ask the average woman about her hero, .ind she will select one of the French Louis, probably Louis the Fourteenth. Sho likes his good took*, his fine manners, and .sin; is sure lie must have been fascinating, else .so many women could not Have cared for him. She has .1 loaning towards llk-helieu. towards liobespierre. and an expressed fondness for -Sheridan-. .Personally, I think Disraeli stsunds foremost -i» my affections. Mi-n'say of him that tie wa« the most conceited mail rhal ever lived: but women, who are wiser than men, know that he had much to be conceited about. Th'e story of his life, tlie story of his nmbiitions, his public speeches, his written books nud his inner life all combined, have a wonderful rasdlaiivctou for wonirai, and draw the feminine heart to Win. Just take up one of his novels If you want to convince yourself of his thorough understanding, not only of women, umd of love, but of society. He had the wisdom to marry a widow,-and he never grew tired of her; while she had tho wisdom to care for him as he wished to bo cared "for, so that he never \ve-i.rk-d of her. He said Hunt he believed IF TWO PEOPLE WISHED TO LIVE HAPPILY they should see very little of each other i-n the daytime, should visit at different houses and meet, after'midnight, to discuss whatever was interesting, over cold chicken and champagne. What n wise man he was. Disraeli suggests ptitnrwses a-nd primroses suggest to me that right here under my own eyes, .that old, old story la being told again, and that the old, old fashion of making love is to the fore. Every- morning Nanny comes into breakfast wtitli a wonderful bivnicb of flowers tut -h«r belt. At first, I only thought that she iiad been out in the garden fo* a walk, and that- tlite--was-tire- result- of • her early visit-to the flower bcil<s:-but one morn- Ing I noticed that her bouquet was largely composed of primroses and purple pansi-es, 'such pa-nsles'as only grow In Mrs. Jim Johnson's beautiful garden. TJic story is plain to me.. Every morning as young Jim Johnson goes down to the village whe/e he Is studying law under the single iudge, who Js the --power, he leaves a bouquet on tlie gate post, and Nanny, quoerly enough,'finds it. It would be cruel, but it would be Interesting to get up early a'nd go down and pre-empt that bouquet. I wonder what Nnnuy .would think If sh« sawder pnnsles dn tlie belt of another woman? She would prob- nbly think the truth, ns she is the only absolutely young-glil lu the house. •:' THE SIGN OF LOVE. It. & almost as pretty as seeing two birds making love to watch one young girl when she Is flrst eoasclous that n young man's heart -Is drawn towards her. She flushes; «he Is nervous aud nhe Hits around Iti n quick sort of a way exactly ns the yellow canary bird does In Its cage when the bird In the othor window trills a'partlcularly sweet It Is a -good thing, this old-fash- ,v^,^ love! It keeps everybody ybungl Even the lookers on nnfl their hearts love Is always' spiritual a-nd- that is I ho reason why no wise woman marries lier love. In marriage, a little thought must be. given to tho material. The bread and butter of the future Ls to be considered. It is impossible to live without loving words, and It Is also Impossible to llva entirely upon rliem. That k the reason.- why It Is well for a boy to learn the value of money elnce, through It, he can care properly for ':he woman tami whom- ho wJaiiftt loving and loving kindness, BAB KNOWS WHAT MONEY IS. I iievur pretend to undervalue money. I tlhtnk it. a great blessing. A nice. ktod mam wrote me a letter and askod me what I thought of the. silver question. To be quite honest, I do nol think very much about lr, but I do know this •gold Is much ulcer to lianfllo. Then, loo, I remember the day of the trade lM', Uat siwiful day when ujie d.!d not know wilicifflici 1 one's dollar represented olglvfy-elght cenls or one hundred of them. Silver is not pleasant in th-e purse. A iiiiioi who know* a great deal -s -that If we have -silver we will not be counted Ijoncst by foreigners. I do iiotithlnk we are counted ::s particularly howst by t'oreigne:-s uo\v. As a nation-, wo are too forgiving. A\Y overlook tire ediibe-/-/.ler anid i«,itnil the guuilciuim thief as a person whc Is to be. regarded with sympathy. Or.r law courts nrc Inughed at by people of (lie Old World, and when we say honesty, they tell us that wu do not know what wu.are talking about; thai we are not an. immortal nataon as far as honesty goes, but an_ •Imiiiuii'tal ntuiiim as fair as -iKmesty ftivs. but an ununoRil "in.-, not knowing ahso- l-nlfiiy wha.fc rw>l luaitwty iis.

You see I am not strong on the silver question, ShonsOi I -eonrw* W Hkluigr it sllvev spoon to eat with, and a silver-backed brusih for my lialr, but I am particularly strong on i\n honest basis for nil bus iuess deals. When we are honest; In our business life we w4H be honest In our daily Hife. Honesty should permeate -oiu-'mlnd. la the old days a girl was itanglit to be virtuous ami a boy- was taught to be honest, and all society morally was In a ttettei- state than It U aow. Today, it b> enough if our women dress well and our men make money. There Is no mention of either these two tilings in th'e Ten Commandments I don'.t thtak there .Is to tine New Testament, but still ns we read translations, the old books can be twisted around to suit the morals of the day. Whnt are r THE MORALS OF THE DAY. The cliief rule seems to be to get as InucU out of your neighbor as you cau and to do as little for your neighbor a you can, It is a bad law, one that Is not good to live by, nor to die by; and thait is wlnat wo have got to 'think of. Not only the living but the dying. The sweetest old writer who belonged to the days that hiive gone, gave the world a great book one on Holy Living. Then he wrote one on Holy Dying. He knew that wfiait wo did here counted for w.hat we did In the hereafter and he combined Ohe two, • That Is what we want to do. Live so that our dying will be <?asy. Try to?
