But who had boon onco, "tliat's the Avay I sees this FASHION. Black and white is a fashionable combination, and many brack dresses have Avhite vests, or plastrons, Introduced, Avlth veiy often fine jet girdles. On nice black dresses an effective trimming is a band of white silk, covered with Jet passementerie, a veiy narrow black velvet arranged in lattice form. JeAveled phis for the hair take on many fanciful forms. A most faslilou- able pin for the hair is a jeAA'cled dagger, the hilt encrusted AAdth diamonds or some other precious stones. Sometimes tho hairpin is surmounted by a gorgeous bug Avlth opal Avlugs, ruby thorax and emerald body; <oir a miniature of diamonds; or a tiny Avarrior's crest; or an outspread fan, covered Avlth brilliant jewels. The sAvcoping changes hi tho shape of Avinter hats and bonnets have brought about u now style of Avearing the hair, termed "the bun"—a veiy descriptive name for tho big round knot of hair Avhich is soon to be the fashion. It is Avorii low, though not so IOAV as the Langtry knot, and demands a larger amount of hair than the majority of Avomen possess. Pale bule, lavender and scarlet veils are Avorii, but aw a general thing they are not becoming. For a middle-aged lady nothing can bo more fitting, and elegant at tho same time, than a ruby velvet goAvn covered witli^ black silk guipure lace, richly Irnped. A Avido sash and stomacher of ruby velvet are AVOITI over the corsage, Avhich is of lace, finely gathered, and In tho pOAvdorod hair a cockade of ruby velvet ribbon is set jauntily a little on one side. A similar dress AVI is AVOITI the other day by the Comtesse de Pour tales it an afternoon reception Avhich slio ave to tlio Russian Grand Dukes just before they left Paris.

Besides these breeds, cockerels of the Plymouth Rock, Indian Game and single Comb Brown Leghorn for crossing on the Brahma and Wyandotte fowls. Or, if there is no particular object hi keeping the breeds pure, a list like the following could be kept, and with even more success- than the former: Black Mtijnorcas for eggs. There would be no object in crossing tliis breed, for we do not believe cross- Ing' would beneflt the egg record; Silver Laced Wyandotte hens crossed by Indian Game cockerels J Langshan hens crossed by Black Minorca cockerels and Llgliit Brahma, hens crossed by Houdan cockerels. These crosses would be unsurpassed for broiler or roasting pin-poses, and the offsprings would make good winter layers. Of the duck famlily, nothing can out do the Pckins; STOfilES ABOUT WHITTIER. To the linel It's Loved Nature and the Simplest J-lett»ure9 of Life. Of the gentle Whittier, and of his fondness for children and goodness to them, there are many reminiscences in Margaret Sidney's Wide-Awake paper, remarks the New York Tribune.
