ITY ftOES NOT ?s o in e latter-day poet of the minor description invoke his muse in praise of the tea gown? aslcs a writer in the Queen. Unquestionably it deserves the honor, evolving, as it does, grace from every fold and being impregnated with the essence of femininity. Take, for example, a -white gown, made of the softest white-spotted satin, striped with lines of insertion, with lace falling about the shoulders and on the hips. The most aggressively masculine woman could not fail to be influenced by its daintiness. Hands of the insertion, alternating with gores of the silk, appear from the waist to the hem, while there is a soft drapery, suggestive of the pannier, and the sleeves are loose and full, allowing a peep at a rounded arm, the rounded arm of course being taken for granted. This is eminently adapted, for the slim figure, while those of more liberal proportions might adopt another style, which is made in a blxic moire of a novel kind, closely striped in lines, with a quaint bib-like collar round the shoulders, outlined with lace, the sleeves full to the elbow, and tucked tightly to the wrist. At the neck and below the waist appear bands of magenta-striped velvet ribbon—a striking note of color this. Crepon gowns, which would do graceful duty at breakfast time, are trimmed with insertion, and liberally trimmed, too. An ideal gown tit to grace a trousseau has a front and back made of horizontally placed tucks of white lisse, alternating with bauds of gui- A nelfr ttlStef ^nifeh deServeS mendatioB shows dotible cap*e& the shoulders and a double-breasted front, and on this again appears this hew shaped back, which is also to be found on cheviot coats, long, Short, and three-quarter length. One 6Mm- pie which is especially attractive is in a light shade of drab, has a Chester* field front, and, though single-breast* ed, boasts broad revers. The neW waistcoats include some of worsted material with a silk spot. These are to be seen in various colors and combinations of colors, while others there are of Tattersall itt varied checks, and others again are ol a washing drill, a light shade of poW- der blue among these, spotted with white and red, having special *attractions. An ideal dress for a little girl has a muslin guimpe striped with embroidery, to be worn beneath a tight-fitting cloth or serge dress, absolutely simple in detail. This is becoming to every child from the age of 3 to the age of 10. always providing that she be slim. Then for her plump sister the mUslin guimpe appears to advantage beneath an Empire belt, from which hangs accordion pleating. A pretty dancing dress is made of mauve nun's veiling in this latter style, the hem being trimmed with double rows of Valenciennes insertion, the Empire belt outlined to match. A pretty costume is of navy blue, the trimmings of light blue braided iu white, and the same style also looks well in cheviot, with the half sleeves and the vest in some contrasting colcr in velvet. A boating dress which excites admiration is made of navy blue serge, cut into a V to the waist i n the front, and sleeveless, exhibiting an under bodice falling with a large turn-down collar made of red cambric spotted with white. Fried Ice Cream, a i'hllartclpliln Fad. A Philadelphia firm makes a specialty of fried ice cream, which is pronounced delicious by all who taste it. A small, solid cake of the cream is enveloped in a thin sheet of pie crust, and then dipped in boiling lard or butter long enough to cook the outside to SOME SPRING AND SUMMER DRESSES. pure, while over the shoulders fall full, loose, winglike draperies of fanciful silk crepe. More elaborate still, but no less beautiful, is a gown of green brocade with a basket-work design strewn with pink rosebiicls. Panels of accordion plaiting in pale green silk crepe appear from beneath the arms to the hem, the sleeves are formed of three deep frills of the crepe, and from the shoulders hang ribbon velvets, tying at the top, brace fashion. Tea jackets there are of a charming variety. One in pink watered silk boasts a vest of cream satin, draped with lace, turning back with broad revers and fastened on the biist with a rosette and long streamers of black ribbon. IHack velvet appaars, buckled with steel as the trimming on the chine silk jacket, also elaborately trimmed with lace.

Grip, a crisp. vServed immediately, the ice cream is found to be as solidly frozen as when it was first prepared. The process of frying- is so quickly accomplished and the pastry is so good a protector that the heat has no chance to reach the frozen cream. Baked ice cream which has a meringue top is another caprice of cooks that is toothsome, though this tampering with a delicacy that is perfection when it is in its perfected, normal condition seems unnecessary. Good ice cream is as good as can be, •Speaking of the dish, a woman i-e- called the other day the fact that it was first introduced at the national capital by Mrs. Alexander Hamilton. She used to tell with amusement of the delight with which President Jackson first tasted it, and how he promptly decided to have ices at the executive mansion. Accordingly, guests at the next reception were treated to the frozen mystery, and afforded considerable fun to the initiated by the reluctance with which they tasted it. Those' from the rural districts, especially, first eyed itsxispiciously, then nelted each spoonful with the breath Before consuming it. Their distrust was soon removed, however, and plates were emptied with great rapidity. New Ship Curml. There was recently submitted to the house river and harbor committee a measure for the survey of a canal route connecting Lake Superior with the Mississippi river. It is proposed by this plan to tUilize the small streams at the source of the Mississippi as con^ necting links in a canal joining the Gulf of St. Lawrence with ths Mississippi. Mr. Keifer has letters from the United States engineer officer stationed at St. Pawl stating that the plan is entirely feasible. A private corporation has also beep organized at Duluth to undertake the work. The projected canal is to have & width of I3u feet and a depth pf twenty feet- It is alsp ged th&t it cpttld be utilized tp stPr^ the upper waters of the Mississippi and prevent the overflows which a so ciisastrpus tp the }pwer Mississippi I* Turned (Owt All Right, "What k§s became pf Dannie Jpoes 4 sbgut whom to rave s.o m^ch?" asked a Sfew ' friend,wfepjB be tol May J7.—fiev. 'T. DeWitt Talmage is now in this city, whence he will sail next Thursday on the steamer "Almeda" for Honolulu, on his trip around the world. He preached to-day to a large and deeply interested audienc'e on the subject of "Heavy Weights," the text being taken from Psalms 55:23* "Cast thy burden upon the Lord and he shall (sustain thee.'' David was here taking his own medicine. If anybody had on him heavy Weights, David had them, and yet out of his own experience he advises you and me as to the best way of getting rid of burdens. This is a Xvorld Of burden-bearing. 'During the past few days tidings came from across the sea of a mighty and good man fallen. A man full of the Holy Ghost was he, his name the synonym for all that is good, and kind, arid gracious, and benificent Word comes to us of a scourge sweeping off hundreds and thousands of people, and there is a burden of sorrow. Sorrow on the sea and sorrow on the land. Coming into the house of prayer there may be no sign of sadness or sorrow, but where is the man who has not a conflict? Where is the soul that has not a struggle? And there is not a day of all the year when my text is not gloriously appropriate, and there is never an audience assembled on the planet where the text is not gloriously appropriate. "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee." In the far east, \vells of water are so infrequent that when a man owns a well he has a property of very great value, and sometimes battles have been fought for the possession of one well of water; but there is one well that every man owns, a deep well, a perennial well, a well of tears. If a man has not a burden on this shoulder he has a burden on the other shoulder. The day I left home to look after myself and for myself, in the wagon my father sat driving, and he said that day soms thing which has kept with me all my life: l 'De Witt, it is always safe to trust God. I have many a time come to a crisis of difficulty. You may know that, having been sick for fifteen years, it was no easy thing for me to support a family; but always God came to the rescue. 1 I remember the time," he said, "when I didn't know what to do, and I saw a man on horseback riding up the farm lane, and he announced to me that I nad been nominated for the most lucrative office in the gift of the people of the county; and to that office I was elected, an-d God in that way met all my wants, and I tell you it is always safe to trust him." Oh, my friends, what we .want is a practical religion! The religion people have is so high up you can not reach it. I had a friend who entered the life of an evangelist He gave up lucrative business in Chicago, and he and his wife finally came to severe want He told rne tlhat in the morning at prayers he said: "0 Lord, thou knowest we have not a mouthful of food in the house! Help me, help us!" And he started out on the street, and a gentleman met him and said: ''I have been thinking of you for a good while. You know I am a flour merchant; if you won't be offended, I should like to send you a barrel of flour." He cast his burden on the Lord, and the Lord sustained him. Now, that is the kind of religion we want. In the Straits of Magellan, I have been told, there is a place where whichever way a ship captain points his ship he finds the wind against him, and there are men who all their lives havo been running in the teeth of the wind, and which way to turn they do not know. Some of them may be in this assemblage, and I address them face to face, not prefunctoriiy, but as one brother talks to another brother; 'Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee." There are a great, many men who have business burdens. When we see a man harried and perplexed and annoyed in business life, we are apt tP say: ' 'He ought not to have attempted to carry so much." Ah! that man may not be to blame at all, When a man plants a business he does not know what will be its outgrowths, what will be its roots, what will be its branches. There is many a man with keen foresight and large business faculty who has been flung into the duet by unforeseen circumstances springing upon him from anjbush, When to buy, when to sell, when to trust and to what amount of credit, what will be the effect of this -new invention pf machinery, what will be the effect ol that loss of crppi and a thpusand other questions perplex business wen until the hair is silvered and deep wrinkles are ploughed in the cheek; and the stocks go up by mountains and gp down hy valleys, and they are at wits' ends, and staggsr HUe n There never has been a two Ua.Y§ 'been such rivalries, enow. it Is hardware hardware, bppkg rgawst tgpfes, lery agateet ehandier/, article against imported article. ^ thouiaad.

To educate theif children, to put wing of protection over their households, to have something left so whett they- pass out of this life 'their wives and children Will not hnVfi to go to the poof- house — that is the way I translate this energy ib the street and store— the vast majority of that energy. Grip, Gouge & Cd. do not do all the business. Some of us remember when the Central America was coming home from California it was wrecked. President Arthur's father-in-law Was the heroic captain of that stiip, and went down with most of the passengers. Soine of them got off into the life-boats, but there was a young man returning from California who had a bag of gold in his hand; and as the last boat shoved off from the ship that Was to go down, that youUg man shouted to a comrade in the boat, "Here, John, catch this gold; there are three thousand dollars; take it home to my old mother, it will make her comfortable in her last days." Grip, GoUge & Co. do not do all the business of the world. Ah! my friend) do you say that God does not care anything about your worldly business? I tell you God knows more about it than you do. He knows all your perplexities; he knows what mortgaged is about to foreclose; he knows what note you can not pay; lie knows what unsaleable goods you have on your shelves; he knows all your trials, from the day you took hold of the first yard-stick down to that sale of the last yard of ribbon, and the God who helped David to be king, and who helped Daniel to be prime minister, and who helped Havelock to be a soldier, will help you to discharge all your duties. He is going to see you through. When loss comes, and you find- j-our property going, just take this book und put it down by your ledger and read of the eternal possessions that will come to you through our Lord Jesus Christ. And when your business partner betrays you and your friends turn against you, just take the insulting letter, put it down on the table, put your Bible beside the insulting letteiyand then read of the friendship of him who "sticketh closer than a brother.' 1 A young accountant in New York city got his accounts entangled. He knew he was honest, and yet he could not make his accounts come out right, and he toiled at them day and night until he was nearly frenzied. It seemed by those books that something had been misappropriated, and he knew before God he was honest. .The last day came. He knew if he could not make his accounts come out right, he would go into disgrace and go into banishment from the business establishment. He went over there very early, before there was anybody in the place, and he knelt down at the desk and said: "Oh, Lord, thou knowest I have tried to be honest, but I can not make thsse things come out right! Help me to-day — help me this morning!" The- young man arose, and hardly knowing- why he did so, opened a book that lay on the desk, and there was a leaf containing a line of figures which explained evei'ythin'". In other words, he cast his ^burden upon the Lord, and the Lord sustained him. Young man, do you hear that? Oh, yes, God has a sympathy with anybody that is in any Icind of toil! He knows how heavy is the hold of bricks that . the workman carries- up the ladder on the wall; he Leai-s the pickaxe of the miner down in the coal shaft; he knows how strong the tempest strikes the sailor at the-masthead; he sees the factory girl among the spindles, and knows how her arms ache; he sees the se \ving woman in the fourth stox-y, and knows how few pence she gets-for making a garment; and louder than all the din and roar of the city comes the voice of a sympathetic God: "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee." Then there are a great many who have a weight of persecution and abuse upon them. Sometimes society gets a grudge against a man. All his motives are misinterpreted and all his gpod deeds are depreciated. With more virtue than some of the honored and applauded, ha runs only against raillery and sharp criticism, When a man begins to go down, he has not only the force of natural gravitation, but a hundred bands to help him in the precipitation. Men are persecuted for their virtues and their successes, Ger- manicus said he had just as many bitter antagonists as he had adornments. The character sometimes is so lustrous that the weak eyes of envy and jealousy can not bear to look at it. It was their integrity that put Joseph in the pit, and Daniel in the den, and SJiadrach in the fire, and sent John the Evangelist to desolate Patmos, and Calvin to the castle of persecution, and John ffwss to the Koran after Moses, and David, and. Her-od after, e if you have anything church, or state, and you with all yow soul, the lightning will strike ypu,, The wprld always has had a crqss between two thieves, tq? tl>$ o.n.e wfep to (save.

Another bnfdeii some have to carf£ is the burden of bereavement Ah! these are the troubles that weaf us otit. If we 1 lose our property, by additional industry perhaps we may bring back the estranged fortune; if we lose our good' name, perhaps by reformation of morals, may achieve again reputation for integrity; but who will bring back the dear departed? . . Theft-there are many who carry the burden of sin. Ah. we all earry it'tin* til in the appointed Way that burden is lifted. We need no Bible to prove that the Whole race is ruined. What a spectacle it Wotlld be -if W6 cduld tear off the mask of human defilement) or beat a drum that would bring up the whole army of the World's trans*, gressions—the deception, the fraud and the rapine and murder and the crime of all centuries! Ay, if I could sound the trumpet of resurrection itt the soul of the best men iti this audience and all the dead sins of the past should come Up, we could not cndut'e the sight Sin, grim and dire, has put its clutch upon the immortal soul, and that clutch will never relax unless unless it be under the hceL of him who came to destroy the works of the devil. Oh., to have a mountain of sin on the soul! Is there no way to have the burden moved? Oh, yes. "Cast thy burden upon the Lord." The sinless one came to take the consequences of our sin! And I know he is in earnest How. do I know it? By the streaming temples and the streaming hands as he says, "Come unto me all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest." . Why will prodigals live on swine's husks when the robe and the ring and the father's welcome are ready? Why go wandering over the great Sahara desert of your sin when you are invited to the gardens of God, the trees of life and the fountains of living water? Why be houseless and homeless 'forever when you may become the sons and daughters of the Lord God Almighty?
