Buch April inoods about her meet! i9he Sighs, and yet she Is not sad; Bhe smiles, with naught to make her glad. A thousand nittlrig fancies chase TThe sun and shadow on her face: The wind Is not more light than she, Nor deeper the unsounded sea. What alleth pretty Marguerite? Doth none discern her secret sweet? Yet earth and air may have a sign The heart of maiden to divine. In budding leaf and building nest Lie kindred mysteries half contest; And whoso hath the gift of sight May Nature's riddle read aright. • Not all at once.the lily's heart Is kissed by wooing waves apart: Not In a day the lavish May Flings all her choicest flowers away. Fair child! shall potent Love alone Forget to send his heralds on? Ah, happy lips, that dare repeat .What alleth pretty Marguerite! The Tight Skirl*. Skirts arc growing tighter nnd tighter and all manner of little expedients are being resorted to do away with the least superfluous wrinkles. Underclothes, in accordance with the cut of the gown, are made extremely narrow, but one petticoat is worn, and that is fitted with a glove-tight, bell-shaped top, and corsets are worn over all the underclothes. This scheme of wearing the corsets over the underskirt is one that has been advocated by modistes for some time. What is entirely an innovation, though, is a little device, too simple to' patent, but that will be easily recognized as a boon. The tight dress skirt if of smooth cloth invariably shows the outline of the corset beneath it. The device referred to bbvlateS this so easily that one wonders why nobody ever thought of It before: It is just a band of silk elastic sewed to the bottom of the corset. The elastic should be fully ail Inch or more wide. It must be stretched while being sewed oh, placed, of course, on the outline of the corset find stitched with the center of the band exactly covering t corset edge. In this way the elastic extends hali! aft inch below the corset and completely erases the s outline. Ball robes are gorgeous In heavy satin embroidered with small spanglea, but the embroidery may not be heavy. The spangles are of the finest and worked In a graceful tracing—not In solid mass. The style is somewhat' after the empire. Free Hair Some one said once that you could get almost anything for nothing in New York. This was brought practically to my notice a few days ago, says a writer in the New York Herald, as 1 was going up town on Third avemie. I passed a barber shop which displayed this strange sign: "Ladies' hair dressing done free every afternoon from 1 to 5 o'clock." As it was past 3 I was prompted by curiosity to go in and investigate. I found the "ladles' " hair dressing parlor a neat, cosy place, with a number of chairs standing In front of a long mirror, which covered one side of the room. I was fortunate enough to flnd a subject in the chair, who w&s having her hair dressed. She was a middle-aged, thlck-natidcd,respectable looking woman, who was going to the inevitable ball. "Doing" her hair was a nice- looking little woman, the head of the hair dressing establishment, and gathered around the chair were half a dozen white-coatee! young men, watching the process of the work and occasionally giving assistance. And that is how the apprentice or student In hairdressing gains his experience, and the clever women who are in touch with the trick get their hair dressed for nothing. SPRING CYCLING SUIT. Now Is the time when every woman who can is getting ready for her spring Cycling suit. March Is the first spring month, and though the weather is .often too Inclement for wheeling the .fair cyclienne puts In her time designing a becoming outfit, for this season promises many Innovations in bicycle costumes. All bicycle suitings are light weight this year and the necessary weight is by braided, trimmings. Erpwn, blue, plum and bottle green are libji colors mqst in vogue—when plain ipolors are used,—but mixed suitings ! will be employed in the building of the most fashionable costumes. If you have not yet made your bi- suit choose oome pretty goods for it, A dark red background with irregular brown designs scattered through it or brown with red distributed in the same way makes a charming costume. The skirt should be about even with the shoe tops—some have it a little shorter—and trimmed around the bottom with wide braid put on plain or in decorative design. The braid can match either the background or the figures. Rave .a waist of flannel, usually the color pf the design of the goods, and a short Eton jacket of the goods Itself. The revers are of flannel trimr med with narrow braid. High bicycle jioes and a jaunty Tarn O'Sbanter complete the costume.--lfelen Qrey- The FdSter Cape. The Easter cape is a marvel of loveliness. It is a relief, too, from the graduated ruffle affairs which Were carried to the extreme during the win-' ter season. From a comfort'giVing point of view the Easter cape is not much, but if beauty be the only consideration it is everything. The Easter cape matches the Easter gown in color and in fabric. Velvet will be very popular and one sees it in the shops at extremely low prices. The Easter girl will wear a charm- Ing toilet of sapphire blu£ velvet. It will be lined with a brilliant color siki probably Roman silk. The cape will be a series of lonfc-, narrow tabs sewed upon a silk lining and edged with imitation jeweled passementerie. Below .the tabs will be two full ruffles of plaited sapphire liberty silk, and under the silk ruffles will be another set of white ruffles made of soft, filmy chiffon. The skirt will be shirred almost to the knees, giving the figure an attenuated appearance. The bodice will be tight fitting, with a vest of white satin and revers trimmed with the passe- menterie. A hat of blue velvet with white crown will be worn, trimmed with blue bird wings and white ribbon.—Helen Grey-Page. Progressive I'on nut Party. A progressive peanut party is conducted . after the manner of Jack Straws. For this purpose small tables are arranged at different points of the room, according to the number of guests invited, allowing each table to four players. In the center of each are piled up a pint of peanuts, and by its side a pair of bonbon tongs, which can be purchased for a few cents each. At a given signal, or by the sounding of a gong, the game is begun and played on the same principle precisely as the old-fashioned Jack Straws, the peanut's taking the place of the straws, while the tongs take that of the hook. Time is called, and the scores kept similar to any progressive game, when the winner for each table mounts up to the next, and another game is begun. At the conclusion of the allotted time scores are compared and prizes awarded to the lucky ones, the same regularity being preserved as in cards. Tongue Slllild. Boil, skin and trim a tongue, cut in dice and add the whites of six hard boiled eggs, cut in similar pieces. Cut fine the white stalks of three heads of celery, and mix with the tongue and eggs. Make a dressing as follows: Beat together four eggs,six table'spoon- fuls of vinegar, five of melted butter, one of prepared mustard, one of sugar, and two-thirds of a cup of cream. Put' over the fire in, a double boiler and cook until as thick as boiled custard. Set aside to cool, season with salt and; cayenne, thin with lemon juice, mix; with the tongue and other ingredients and serve. . To niuko liabj's Hair Curl. Every morning after the baby's hail) has been washed and well brushed, do not leave it nice and smooth and tidy, but with the tips of the fingers, rub the head all over, very gently, with a short, circular motion from right to left. This causes the roots of the hair to twist, nnd curly hair will be the result. IIU Choice. Ruinsey—Mighty poor judgment that Tompkins has, eh? Dumsey—What's the latest? Rumsey—Went to a pound party the other night,, and what you s'pos^ he took? "Give it up." Rumsey—Pound of mustard.

Miss Hojack (to the milkman)—Look here, Mr. Chawk, you warranted your milk pure, and the lactometer shows water in it. Mr. Chawk—Well, ina'm, I guarantee that the lactometer shows that the water is pure if it says anything about it.—New York World. : A Good Subject, "Do you think there }s anything il the saying that the fish Is & brain food?"
