NOTES OF f HE MODES. SOME ftEW FASHIOfo PLATES LOVELY WOMAN. A Stylish Street Coat-feme In Siltc and La tender—A ttoui« Dress—A Glrt's Outfit In Corduroy Crepon—Household Musings. In Cotrtnt-oy Ci-epon. is a dress of crimson corduroy cfepoii, made in a very pretty style, with a, silk bodice, trimmed around the shoulders rMh a deep collar of the cfepon, edged with a ruche of silk; around the waist is a belt of ribbon* fastening in the front tvith a rosette; this would look very well with a silk bodice and trimmings in a contrasting color. Brown might be effectively combined with blue, and green with tan coloi", ov the bodice and trimmings might be of Liberty velveteen, and achieve a success. New Appellation for Men. When a woman is unmarried she is called Miss. When she is married she is called Mrs. A man, whatever be his state, is Mr. Why should there not be spme special designation for married men? Master has 1 been suggested as an easy and not too great a change Zrom Mr. for the designation of married men. Thus Mr. Brown after turning from the altar would be Master Brown. This, however, is objected to on the ground that little boys are called Master by servants • and teachers, and the intimation would be that a man by marrying has entered his second childhood. By using the Latin Dominus, as in the Portuguese, and call Mr. Brown Dom Brown, the designation would be properly made. Another suggestion is that before a man marries the syllable "Ap" be attatched to his name. Thus Mr. Ap Brown, a son of Mr. Brown, would on marrying become Mr. Brown himself. Whether or not these suggestions be adopted, it is plain that there is a necessity for some such suggestive appellation.—New York Evening Sun. Silk and Lavender. Though the new fashions are much admired, the gown of quaint design is still the vogue. This may be due to the fact that its antiquity gives it a touch of novelty. Here is a gown which, from its design, might have been just unpacked from one's grandmother's caiuphor chest, but the price which the modern woman must pay for it indicates that it is this year's creation. Over a black lace petticoat Jiangs a lavender silk overskirt, which is laid in fine plaits over the hips and cut in bewitchingly regular little tabs around the bottom. The bodice has straps of jeweled lace passementerie over the shoulders, which are held in place by rosettes of velvet. -To add to the old time air, a stomacher is worn. A balloon puff, Slits* afcd fdld fifclr offci* arft discarded lor those of dafb Shell. Bla&k-bordered h&hdkerehiefft are still found in the stores, but they ate not much in fSvor, a natrow hem- 1 stitched white one being used instead Fads fttid Black enamel jewelry ha& been ing a decided sale of late. The newest sleeves for evening weaf are either formed of two puffs, one overlapping and the other caught up on the outside of the arm to form a bow, or are made of a series of frills, one over the other. The ' 'complexion veil" is a novelty of pale pink Russian net Sprinkled with black spots and delicately perfumed. It is very becoming to pale blonds, yet there is nothing so pretty as the regulation black-dotted net A curious fashion in scarf and hat pins consists in having as the pin head a large pearl, either pink, gray, white or black, with a tiny diamond snake curled slantingly around it. The lilli* putian serpent may be replaced by a fly resting on a minuscule sprig of flowers, A turquoise may be used in^ stead of a pearl. Green has been a distinctive color of the past season, and blonds and bru* nets alike will rejoice that the new spring color card is headed with this favorite hue. A bright green heightens the natural brilliancy of aoclear, dark complexion, throwing into relief the red of cheek and lip, and lending to the eyes a clear, sparkling light. New shoes and slippers for the bride include a high-cut Oxford shoe of fine black patent leather, with tiny white buttons and a piping of white kid around the vainp. Another novelty is a pretty low shoe, the toe piece black, and the heel part black, a big knot bow of white ribbon over the instep. Bed room slippers are of watered silk or slightly wadded satin, gay with bow, beads and ruffles. Cheap Kid Glovea. The cheapest kid gloves in trade are made from the skins of kids and lambs that are born dead. The reason they wear out so quickly and tear so easily is because they have no elasticity. These dead skins are called schmacheE kid and the gloves retail at $1 or less. To a judge of gloves the difference between a schmachen and a kid is as plain as the difference between a gingham and a linen shirt. Some of the heavy gloves sold for kid are made of colt skin.

It is a duty we owe our family, our friends and the world at large. It is the passport to good breeding and the support of fine manners. Rugs. Those who possess a superfluity oil rugs can make a charming effect by j hanging them against .the wall in the corner of a room, one at the head and two or three on the side. Another rug is suspended lengthwise to form a top. A narrow divan seat with four or five large cushions is arranged at one end, and the rest of the space is filled with a small eastern octagon table (on which are laid cigars and cigarettes, matches and a silver taper) and a couple of oddly-shaped chairs. A Turkish lamp, with a red glass shade, gives just the amount of light desirable, and a few eastern arms arranged in tlie background of pugs will add greatly to the effept with a slight "1830" droop, furms the sleeve, It is made of the lavender eilk with a frill of black lace above ajjd belpw Jt.'-rNew York World, so dis- Js Fashionable. .Black dresses are |ft§hioaable, jnuch so. it is not always easy to tinguish whether they wean paour or not For this r? asou »o4i§tes adding a touch of cQlgr.

A man, or jnore frequently a woman, or even a. feeble girl, sits down in front of tb§ animal and steps on its tail, while, at the same time, striking its white teeth with bis or hey fingers, when the creai ture begins to sing.

This being the ordinary architecture of the place, you may imagine something of the splendor of GOv. Felix's residence. Iti a room of that palace, floor tesselated, windows curtained, ceiling fretted, the whole scene affluent with Syrian purple, and statues, and pictures, and eafvittgs, sat arerydafk'coiatjlexioned man by the name of Felix, and beside him a woman of extraordinary beauty, whom he had stolen by breaking up another domestic circle. She was only 18 years of age, a princess by birth, and unwittingly waiting for her doom —that of being buried alive in the ashes and scorise of Mount Vesuvius, which in sudden eruption, one day, put an end to her abominations. Well, one afternoon Drusilla, seated in the palace, weary with the magnificent stupidities of the place, says to Felix: "You have a very distinguished prisoner, I believe, by the name of Paul. Do you know he is one of my countrymen? I should vei'y much like to see him, and I should very much like to hear Kirn speak, for I have heariJ. so much about his eloquence. Besides that, the other day, when he was being tried in another room of this palace, and the windows were open, I heard the applause that greeted the speech of Lawyer Ter- tullus, as he denounced Paul Now, I very much wish 1 could hear Paul speak. Won't you let me hear him speak?" "Yes," said Felix, "I will. I will order him up now from the guard-room." Clank, clank, comes a chain up the marble stairway and there is a shuffle at the door, and in comes Paul, a little old man, prematurely old through exposure—.only GO years of age, but looking as though he were faO. He bows very courteously before the governor and the beautiful woman by his side. They say: "Paul, we have heard a great deal about your speaking; give us now a specimen of your eloquence." Oh! if there ever was a chance for a man to show off, Paul had a chance there. He might have harangued them about Grecian art, about the wonderful water works he had seen at Corinth, about the Acropolis by moonlight, about prison life in Philippi, about ' what I saw in Thessalonica," about the old mythologies; but "No!" Paul said to himself: "I am now on the way to martyrdom, and this man and woman will soon be dead, and this i-s niy only opportunity to talk to them about the things of eternity." And just there and then, there broke in upon the scene a peal of thunder. It was the voice of a judgment day speaking through the words of the decrepit apostle. As that grand old missionary proceeded with his remarks, the stoop begins to go out of his shoulders, and he rises up, and his countenance'^ illumined with the glories of a future life, and his shackles ratt?« and grind as he lifts his fettered arm, and with it hurls upon his abashed auditors the bolts of God's indignation. Felix grew very white about the lips. His heart beat unevenly. He put his hand to his brow, as though to stop the quickness and violence of his thoughts, He drew his robe tighter about him,' as under a sudden chill His eyes glare and his knees shake, and, as he clutches the side of his chair in a very paroxysm of terror, he orders the sheriff to take Paul back to the guard room. "Felix trembled, and said, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee." A young man came one night to our services, with pencil in hand, to caricature the whole scene, and make mirth of those who should express any anxiety about their souls; but I met him at the door, his face very white, tears running down his cheek, as he said, "Do you think there is any chance for me?" Felix trenv bled, and so may God grant it may be. so with others. I propose to give you two or three reasons why I think Felix sent Paul back to the guard room and adjourned this whole subject of religion. The first reason was, he did not want to give up his sins. He looked arou.nd; there was Drusilla. He knew thai when he became a Christian, he mwst send her back to Aziaus, her lawful husband, and he said to himself, "I will risk the destruction of my imuw tal soul, sooner than I will do that" How many there are now who can not get to be Christians, because they will not abandon their sins! In vain all their prayers and all their church go» ing. You can not keep these darlijjg sins and win heaven; and now some of you will have to decide between wine cup, and unlawful an4 hand and eternal other- Peittah shared vSarjasonj Salome daneje the pit; PrueilJa b.jge.kejl to heaven for Feli$, Ye$ sent thp 6u]jjpc£ JJQW, J ol yo» will say, n £»t> T be BQ precipitate, is ysw have a few w& I b»Y§ a j wast tjw_ a t$w»M$Wi HttfiS.

It tvas business, among othef things, that fuined His Soul, and 1 suppose there ate thousands of' people who are not children of G6*d because they have so touch business. It is business ia the store- losses, gains, Unfaithful etnpldyes. It is business in yottf latv office — aiifr poanas, writs you have to write out, papers you hafe to file, arguments you hate to make. It is your medical profession, With its broken nights, and the exhausted anxieties bf life hanging Upon your treatment. . It is yotti' real estate ofilce, yottf business Mth landlords and tenants, and the failure of men to meet their obligations With you, Ay, with some of those who are here, it is the annoyance of the kitchen, and the sitting- room, and the parlor— the Wearing economy of trying to meet large ex* penses with a small income. Ten thousand voices of "business, business, business," drown the voice of the Eternal spirit, silencing the Voice of the advancing judgment day, over* coming the voice of eternity; and they can not hear, they can not listen. They say, "Go thy way for- this time." Some of you look upon your goods, look upon your profession, you look upon your memorandum-books, and yoil see the demands that are made this very week upon your time and your patience and your money; and while I am entreating you about your soul and the danger of procrastination you say, "Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for ihee." Oh, Felix, why be bothered about the affairs of this world so much more " than about the affairs of eternity? Do you not know that when death comes you will have 'to stop business, thowyh it be in the most exacting period of it — between the payment of the money and the taking of the receipt? The moment he comes you will have to go. Death waits for no man, however high, however low. Will you put your office, will you put your shop in comparison with the affairs of eternal world? Affairs that in- on on the looks Q| Herod wp the wh§» t tbat an volve thrones, palaces, dominions eternal? Will you put 200 acres of ground against immensity? Will you put forty or fifty years of your life against millions of ages? Oh, Felix, you might better postpone everything else! for do you not know that the upholstering of Tyrian purple in your palace will fade, and the marble blocks of Cesarea will crumble and the breakwater at the beach, made of great blocks of stone sixty feet long, must give way before the perpetual wash of the sea; but the redemption that Paul offers you will be forever? And yet, and yet, and yet you wave him back to the guard, room, saying, "Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season i.wl.11 call for thee." '. •£';'" •':':—^ • *,^~ Again, Felix adjourned this subject of religion and put off Paul's argument, because he could not give up the honors of the -world. He was afraid somehow he would be compromised himself in this matter. Remarks he made afterward showed jiim to be intensely ambitious. Oh, how he hugged the favor of men! I never saw the honors of this world in their hollowness and hypocrisy so much as in the life .and death of that wonderful man, Charles Sumner. As he went. toward the place of burial, even Independence hall, in Philadelphia, asked that hisi'emains stop there on their way to Boston. The flags were at half-mast, and the minute- guns on Boston Common throbbed after his heart had ceased to beat. Was it always .so? While he lived, how censured of legislative resolutions, how caricatured of the pictorials; how charged with every motive mean and ridiculous; how all the urns of scorn and hatred and billingsgate emptied upon his head; how, when struck down in senate chamber, there were hundreds of thousands bf people who said, "Good for him, served him right!" how he had to put the ocean between him and his maligners, that he might have a little peace, and fooWj when he wept off sick, they said' he was brokenhearted because he could not get to be President or secretary of state, Oh Commonwealth of Massachusetts! whp is that man who sleeps in your public hall, covered with garlands and wrapped in the stars and stripes? Is that the man who, only ^a few months before, you denounced as the foe of republican and democratic institutions? Is that the same man? Ye American people, ye could not by one week of funeral eulogium and news' paper leaders, which the dead sena* tor could neither, read nor heai 1 , atone for twenty'five years of maltreatment and caricature.

Their convenient Season caine whea Paul and.his guaf dsmati enter" ed the palace; it went away wheu Paul and his guardsmati left. HaVti you never seen men waiting for a eott* venient Season? There is such a great fascination about it, that though you' may have great respect to the truth of Christ, yet somehow there is itt your soul the thought, "Not quite yet It is not time for tne to become a Christian.'.' I say to a boy, "Seek Christ," He says, "No; wait until I get to be a young man." I say to the young man, "Seek Christ." He says, "Wait until I come to mid-life." I meet the same person in mid-life, and I say, "Seek Christ." He says, "Wait until I get old. " I meet the same person in old age, and say to him, "Seek Christ." Ho says, "Wait until I am on my dying bed," I am called to his dying couch. His last moments have come. I bend over the couch and listen for his last worda I have partially to guess what they. are by the motion of his lips, he is so feeble; but rallying himself, he whispers, until I can hear him say, "I — am— waiting — for — a — more — convenient — season " — and he is gone! May God Almighty forbid that any of you, my brethren or sisters, act the part of Felix and Drusilla, and put away this great subject. If you are going to be saved ever, why not begin to-night? Throw down your sins and take the Lord's pardon. Christ has been tramping a,f tor you many a day. An Indian and a white man became Christians, The Indian, almost as soon as he heard the gospel, believed and was saved; 'but the white man struggled on in darkness for a long while before he found light. After their peace in' Christ, the white man said to the Indian, "Why was it that I was kept so long in the darkness, and you immediately found peace?" The Indian replied, "I will tell you. A prince comes along, and he offers you a coat. You look at your coat, and you say, 'My coat is good enough, and yourefusehis offer;but the prince comes along and he offers me the coat, and I look at my old blanket and I throw that away, and take his offer. You,_ sir, ". continued the Indian, "are cjlng- ing to your own righteousness, you think you are good enough, and you keep your righteousness; but I have nothing, nothing, and so when Jesus offers me pardon and peace, I. simply take it." My reader, why not now throw away the worn-out blanket of your sin and take the robe of a Savi- ioui-'s righteousness — a 'robe so white, so fair, so lustrous, that no fuller [on earth can whiten it? 0, shepherd, tonight bring home the lost sheep! 0, father, to-night give a welcoming kiss to the wan prodigal! 0, friend bf Lazarus, ' 'to-night break down the doo" of the sepulchre, and say to all these dead souls as by irresitible fiat, 'Live!
