StlMMER elEL A<Hltf, PAPERS NEVER WEARY OF HER. Sfe« 1* Chestnot Pfoo* ther* Can lt« #o Doubt—The Article lot 1894— the Iteefet Afcatn—Notes of the Mode*. Summer Girt. When the summer girl of '91 is ready for inspection she will be a delightful combination of fluffiness, quaint de- taureness and piquancy. This composite effect is new. It results entirely from her dainty gowns. She is what they make her. White mousse- line de soie, because of its filmy simplicity, is the material most favored for afternoon gowns. The illustration shows one of the fashionable ways of treating it. Corn- colored taffeta is used for the foundation. It is rather an expensive lining, costing Si a yard, but the effect of the softened tint of color gleaming through the mousseline is exquisite. The full skirt is made plain, with the exception of pert bows of corn-colored ribbon arranged in groups near the hem. The bodice is simplicity itself. It is soft and girlish and confined at the •waist by a broad band of corn-colored ribon which ties in an erect bow at the left side. The sleeve is a. fluffy, . Children's clothes promise i& bfc fffti* tictilarly pretty this yfiar, and rievef have the styles been more BUccSasM with the "awkward age"—that fery difficult period wheto f iris afe aft t<f be either tall and "gawk?," or stout and shapeless. Happily, just how th6 fashions allow for adaptatidn to either condition, and both defects may be made unnoticeable by a judicious choice of material and patterns. For thin children, for instance, the belted waist and flaring ruffle over the hips id particularly becoming, while it produces a most awkward effect on a child with a big waist, or one Wlio is inclined to be stout. For the latter, the empire effects are particularly good, for nothing accentuates stout* ness so much as a smoothly fitting 1 tight garment of any kind, whether on a woman or a child. Gathered waists, too, look well on stout girls. A gath* ered waist with a narrow belt, a loosely fitting bell-skirt and ruffled bertha, with sleeves draped at the top and fitting tight below the elbow, will balance an awkwardly stout girl, so to speak, and render her big waist and stomach almost unnoticeable. Of course, thin young girls have the ad* vantage, and can wear almost any style, but it should be remembered that the gored skirt and tight sleeve may make them look angular. . — the Reefer Here Again.

For house dresses, nothing is prettier than the soft clinging cashmeres. Many prefer light, delicate tints, and these are very pretty, but dark colors are more serviceable, and an especially pretty one is of black. There is a simulated overskirt, edged with black velvet down the front and around the bottom; the bodice has an added basque, which points slightly in front and is trimmed with black velvet ribbon; a simulated jacket is ornamented on each side with three velvet-covered buttons and sleeve capelets edged with velvet ribbon fall over full balloon sleeves. Smaller Sleeves. Sleeves seem a little smaller, because they are lower, but they still keep up their reputation for quantity in material, three yards of single width goods being the necessary length. For morning wear with the plain skirts, a pretty wash'Silk blouse, plaited from 1 ' ' the neck to the belt and fastened with jeweled studs, makes a dainty costume. It is safe to predict that light colors, such as mauve, light tan, gray and white will be worn in the street. Short Klouses. . The short blouse which used to disappear under the skirt at the belt has had its day, and all the new ones have a slightly full basque below the waist A, pretty black dotted nainsook blouse has a gathered yoke, barred across with narrow black insertion, a .jnoire ribbon, with an antique silver buckle, and a black moire bow at the Beck with frilled lace ends. Irish I4nens. Irish hand-made linens are recommended strongly lor summer dresses, and they come in ft variety of colors, which are softer and wore becoming than those of last year.

This year it Is more fanciful than ever before. The reefer designed for a girl of 4 is made of dark-blue cloth. The big sailor collar is brightened by rows oi gilt braid and finished with an odd little frill of white silk. The leg o' mutton sleeve has the cuff trimmed with braid, and large mother-o'-pear] buttons fasten the reefer togethor. IN a A.T COLORS. Another new reefer is of scarlet cloth, gay with gilt buttons. The deep collar is in blue with an edge of gilt and a small collar of red above it. braiding designs are se,en, pjj : CQV& while is sonjetio^ea i» Tgi'/ing . bf *Mt& PP g ft£ extremely e^gf* effect, particularly Fashion's Fancies, Seamless French waists are the style for those who are slim enough to wear them. Some of the newest bonnets have very wide strings, edged with lace, which form ft scarf under toe chin. Velvets will continue in favor through the season, especially for trimmings, and jaany yards of velvet, ribbons will be used on chaliie, foulard d Uhjna silk dresses. A heavy cord is an excellent finish for the bottom of dresses, and it prevents the wear on the material. Large brown velvet roses, black vel» vet ox-eyed daisies, with yellow hearts and black velvet violets are the latest novelties in millinery. The cw^way fccljet, to be W0 rn, with & vest or blouse waist, with certain; modificatipnB, promises tp become very popular.

My object in this sermon is to shoW that common sense, as well as my text, declares that such an expectation is chimerical. You say that the impenitent man, having got into the next world and seeing the disaster, will, as a result of that disaster, turn, the pain the cause of his reformation. But you can find ten thousand instances ib this world of men who have donb wrong and distress overtook them suddenly. Did the distress heal them!? No; they went right on. j That man was flung of dissipations. "You must stop drinking," said thj doctor, "and quit the fast life you an leading, or it will destroy you." Thj patient suffers paroxysm after paros- ysm; but, under skillful medical treal- mcnt, he begins to sit up, begins t> walk about the room, begins to go to business. And, lo! he goea back to the same grog shops for his morning dram, and his evening dram, and the drains between. Flat down againl Same doctorl Same physical anguish. Same medical warning. Now, the illness is more protracted; the liver is more stubborn, the stonj- ach more irritable, and the digestive organs are more rebellious. But after awhile he is out again, goes back tp the same dram shops, and goes the same round of sacrilege against his physical health. j He sees that his downward course is ruining his household, that his life is a perpetual perjury against his marriage vow, that that broken-hearted woman is so unlike the roseate youn£ wife Whom he married that her old school mates do not recognize her; that his sons are to be taunted for a life time by the father's drunkenness, that the daughters are to pass into life under the scarification of a disreputable ancestor. He is drinking up their happiness, their prospects for this life, and, perhaps, for the life to come. Sometimes an appreciation of what he is doing comes-upon him?, His nervous system is all" a tangle. From crown of head to sole of foot he is one aching, rasping, crucifying, damning torture. Where is he? In hell on earth. Does it reform him? After awhile he has delirum tremens, with'a whole jungle of hissing reptiles let out on his pillow, and his screams horrify the neighors as he dashes out of his bed, crying: "Take these things off me!" As he sits pale and convalescent, the doqtor says: "Now I want to have a p'ain talk with you, my dear fellow. The next attack of this kind you ha^e you will be beyond all medical skill, and you will die." He gets better and goes forth into the same round again. This time medicine takes no effect. Consultation of physicians agree in saying there is no hope. Death ends the scene. That process of inebriation, warning and dissolution is going on within stone's 'throw of you,'going on in all the neighborhoods of Christendom, Pain does not correct. Suffering does not reform. What is true in one sense is true in all senses, and will forever be so, and yet men are expecting in the next world purgatorial rejuvenation. Take up the printed reports of the prisons of the United States, and you will find that the vast ma- ority of the incarcerated have been ihere before, some of them four, five, six times, With a million'iJlustrations all working the other way in this world, people are expecting that dig' tress in the next state will be salva.* ;ory, You can not imagine any worse ;orture in any other world than that which some men have suffered here, and without any salutary conser quence. Fnthermore, the prospect of a refor» mation in the next world is more im» probable than a reformation here,' In this world the life started with in* npeenee of infancy, . In, the case supposed, the other life will open with all the accumulated bad habits o$ many years upon hto Surely, it j§ easier to build a strong ship out pf new timber than out of an old hulls that has been ground up in the breakers. If "with innocence to start with i» this, life a man does not fee* come godly, whftt prospect js there, that is the next world, starting ™ ul1 sin, there would be a seraph« Surely the scwiptor has W9f e T pf making a, flne Statl 6 out 0$ a of a» QW fclaete W k eetw&l with the storms el-half a twy. §iweiy up,o,n,' a $fe.a; sheet of paper- it is easier foj . _ J not tntfik tfcg V cities WOuld hsvHS ISfct thfeif there.

If the surroundings in this world Were crowded of tempta* tion, the surroundings of the next world, after the righteous have passed up and on, will be 1,000 per cent iaore crowded of temptation* Multitudes of men who ate kept Within bounds Would say« "Go to, now! Let me get all out of this life there is in it. Come, glttttotiyj atid inebriation, and uncleanness, and re* venge, and all sensualities, aiid Wait upon me! My life may be somewhat shortened in this World by dissoluteness, but that will only make heavenly indulgence on a larger scale the sooner possible. 1 will overtake the saints at last, and will enter the Heavenly Temple only a little later than those who behaved themselves here. I will on my way to heaven take a little Wider excursion than those who Were on earth pious, and I shall go to heaven via Gehenna and via Sheol." Another chance in the next world means free license and wild abandonment in this. Suppose you were a party in an important case at law, and you knew from consultation with judges and attorneys that it would be tried twice, and the first trial would be of little importance, but that the second would decide everything; for which trial would you make the most preparation, for which retain the ablest attorneys, for which be mo|!t anxious about the attendance of witnesses? You would put all the stress upon the second tr Jal, all the anxietv, all the expenditure, saying, "The first is nothing, the last is everything. ' Give the race assurance of a second and more important trial in the subsequent life, and all the preparation for eternity would be "post mortem," post funeral, post sepulchral and the world with one jerk be pitched off into impiety and godlessness, Furthermore, let, me ask why a chance should be given in the next world if we have refused innumerable chances in this? Suppose you give a banquet, and you invite a vast number of friends, but one man declines to come, or treats your invitation with indifference. You in the course of twenty years give twenty banquets, and the same man is invited to them all, and treats them all in' the same obnoxious way. After awhile you remove to another house, larger and better, and you again invite your friends, but send no invitation to the man who declined or neglected the other invitations. Are you to blame? Has he a right to expect to be invited after all the indignities he has done you? God in this World has invited us all to the banquet ;pf his grace. He .invited us by his Providence and his .'Spirit'30.5 days of everyvyear. sinjce we knew our right hand;from our left. If we declined it every -time, or treated the invitation with .indifference, and gave twenty or. forty or, fifty years of indignity on our part toward the , banqueter, and at last he spreads the banquet in a more luxurious and kingly place, amid, the heavenly 'gardens, have we a '.right to expect him to invite us again, and have we a right to blame him if he does not invite us , If twelve gates of salvation stood open twenty years or fifty years for our admission, and at the end of that time they are closed, can we complain of it and say: "These gates ought to .be open again. Give us another chance?" If the steamer is to sail for Hamburg, and we want to get to Germany by that line, and we read in ] every evening and every morning j newspaper that it will sail on a certain day, for two weeks we have that advertisement before our eyes, and then we go down to the docks fifteen minutes after it has shoved off into the stream and say: "Come back. Give me another chance, It is not fair to treat me in this way. Swing up to the dock again, and throw out planks and let me come on board," Such behavior would invite arrest as a madman. You see that this idea lifts this world up from an important way station to a platform of stupendous issues, and makes all eternity whirl around this hour. But one trial for which all the preparation must be made in this world, or never made at all. That piles up all the emphases all the climaxes and all the destinies into life here. No other ahance! O, how that augments the value and the imopar- tance of this chance! Alexander with« his army used to surround a city, and then wonld s lift a great light in token to the people that, is they pui'rendered before that light went put, all would be well; but if p#ce the light "went out, then the bat- tering^ranis would swing 'against the wall, and demolition and disaster would follow, W§U, all we need.- do for pw present and everlasting salety jf tp. make surrender to- PhTOi;, the kjng »n4 C9n<pe'rpjv-p hearts, sjOTende.r el ««?«&§§, 81 . updfi an towering sttfejgcC J>£g king dying that We Blight life.

While We are Waiting for his arrival 1 heai- imtnof tal spirits in conversation. "What are" you waiting here for?" says a soul that Went up from Madagascar to a soul that as* cended from America. The latter says: "I cattle from America, Where forty years I heard this gospel preached, and Bible re&d, and ffom the pfayei 1 that 1 learned in infancy at my moth« er's knee Until my last hotir 1 had gaspel advantage, but, for soine i-eason, I did not move the Christian choice, aiid 1 am here Waiting fof the judge to give me a new trial and an« other chance*" "Strange!" says the other; "I had but one gospel call in Madagascar, and I accepted it, and I do not need another chance."' "Why are you here?" says one who on earth had feeblest intellect to one Who had great brain, and silvery tongue, and scepters of influence. The latter responds: "Oh, I knew.more than my fellows. I mastered libraries, and had learned titles from colleges, and my name was a synonym for eloquence and power. And yet I ^neglected my soul, and I am here waiting for a new trial." "Strange," says the one of the feeble earthly capacity; "I knew but little of worldly knowledge, but I knew Christ, and made him my partner, and I have no need of another chance." Now the ground trembles with the approaching chariot. The great folding doors of tho hall,swing open. "Stand back!" cry the celestial ushers. "Stand back, and let the judge of quick and dead pass through!" He takes the throne, and looking over the throng of nations, he says: "Come to judgment, the last judgment, the only judgment!" By one flash from the' throne' all the history of each one flames forth to the vision of himself and all others/ "Divide!" says the judge to the assembly. "Divide!" echo the walls. "Divide!" cry the guards angelic. And now the immortals separate, rushing this way and that, and after' awhile there is a great aisle between them, and a great vacuum widening and widening, and the judge, turning to the throng on one side, says: "He that is righteous, let him be righteous- still, and he that is holy, let him be holy still;" and then, turning toward the throng on the opposite side, - he says: "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still, and he that is filthy, let him be filthy still;" and then, lifting one hand toward each group, he declares'. "If the tree fall toward the south or toward the noith, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be." And then I hear something jar with a great sound. It is the closing of the Book of Judgment. The judge ascends the stairs behind the throne. The hall of the last assize is cleared and adjourned forever. INCIDENT AND ANECDOTE. A young lieutenant going out to In- *dia with his ..regiment, writing home about the country says: "The climate is magnificent, but a lot of young fellows come out here and drink and eat and eat and drink and die, and then^ write home and say it was the climate that did it." "What relation is Mr. X— to you?" asked the Boston minister of a 4-year- old boy. "He's my grandpa." "And what relation is" Mrs. X—?" "She's my grandma." "And what relation am I to you?" added the clergyman. The little fellow was puzzled, but was finally told, "I'm your pastor; you'll remember, won't you?" The boy promised, and when he reached home electrified his mother and grand* mother with the announcement: "Mr. Y— says I'm some relation to him; he's my parsnip!" A gentleman, in speaking oi the commonness of the proper names of MJones" and "Smith," told this story; "I once attended a camp meeting in one of the rural districts pf Kentucky. One day as I was walking from the spring to the camp I met a strange gentleman who offered me his hand, 'I am glad to see you, Mr, Jones,' said he, 'I suppose you are mistaken,' said j, *i reckon not,' said my new friend. »I am a stranger here, but the man who brought me over here said th.a.t every other man I met would'' be a Jones.'
