The English jacket tits closely to the figure and has full skirt at the back, while the fronts are fitted with long darts, from which small beltc keep the front edged together. The square-shaped collar hangs in sailor i fashion across the back of the shoulders, while at the same time the ordinary collar and revers could be substituted if desired. All travelers fissure tin tliat Ilio Aus- iralinns arc tho lowest and most degrading savages in the world I have noticed, as a cm-ions fact, that savages are intelligent and iiiditstrlotis in pi-o- portiou to tho harshness of their climate and the difficulties they have to overcome in getting food. Wherever the winters are cold, natural forethought induces the Esquimaux or the Siberian, or the savage who lives in the latitudes to lay by a supply of food against tho day when ho cannot hunt or llsh. Now, Australia is a very warm country. You know it Is to the south of tho equator, so that the northern parts are the wannest, and the wind blowing from the north is always the hottest, while the cold and chilling blasts come from the south. But in no part of that great island, which is nearly as largo as the United States, is there over any frost or snow, except on the tops of tho highest mountains. Tho shores swarm; the hills are full of kangaroos, snakes and dingoes, or wild (logy, all of Avhlcli are food for tho native; Australian. In a. climate where clothes arc not needed, people do not require Avarni or well-built houses; and where food Is o abundant, they have to make no effort to secure it, the consequence is, they grow up thriftless and lazy, and not being required to think, any more than the wild beasts, their intelligence is but very llttla greater, The Australians are a race peculiar to themselves, although, because of their very black skins, they are often classed with the negroes. Their featured are more like those of the Malays, Women With Their Clillilren. and their hair instead of. being crisp and kinky, is long and wavy, and they take a great deal of pride in its decoration. In 1892;- being in the northern part of Queensland, Australia, I accepted the invitation of a •sheep-squatter—the name given to men who keep largo herds of sheep on the plains along the base of .what are called the Australian Alps. One of the inducements he offered me was that I should see the natives in all their primitive simplicity of life. To reach his place from the nearest town required a ride of 180 miles on horseback,'but such distances are not considered/ very great in that land. My friend owned 700,000 sheep which grazed over 1,000,000 acres ofland many of the herders were "blaekfellows," as the natives are here called:. I know of nothing in America so wild as the life of these squatters, and the most degraded 'of our Indians are civilized compared with the brightest of the Australian natives; 1 soon made the acquaintance of Joo- bra, the head man, or chief of a number of large villages, near my fi'iend's sheep station. I said "villages," but it will surprise you to know that although, there were fully 2,000 black peonlo, they had neither a house, hut nor shelter of any kind,' their only protection against wind and rain being the spreading branchpsof some low tree, or the shadow cast by, a vine. Where people have not the intelligence to erect houses or huts, you may be sure they do'not see the necessity, for* clothing, and so the only garments worn by these' natives were the skins of kangaroos, or dogs, fastened about their loins,- CANTON, CEJSTON AND MOJRJJ. the sUU popular black and white there is a French stocking in black and white. &p«f echoes this seaspn come in only lightest shades— in fact almost a ow, A la'te out Cornea as hjgh on |$;}n,§te.p,,a.s ,a» osfoyd tie, but the three The above illustration represents a costume made for a girl graduate in one of the western female ^a t ine t h § W whitf or Wgofe my itf the §Ute 'Witt!

Even city children see squirrels In the parks and many keep them for:'pets in cages. The chipmunk or the sqnltTol, with a big bushy tail, arc lively, happy and frolicsome fellows, and they seem to do nothing but play all day long. But they have plenty of work to do, aud perhaps: the most sensible way they can manage it is to make a play of it and appear to eveiy one to be only enjoying themselves, when, In reality, they are working for their living. Some squirrels, the ground squirrels, make Ifieir house underground, with long tunnels and little ante-chambers and a good-sized nursery and storeroom. Tlies6 two rooms seem to be the;';'most important of the squirrel's establishment. He may omit the parlor/; but the nursery and storeroom are commodious and' well fitted. The flying i squirrel, bushy-tailed squirrel and all .Varieties which live in the trees, hayp a snug little nest under': the bark, or In a convenient hollow where .brauches meet. Here they have, like the other varieties, a good, spacious storeroom, as well as a nest for the baby squirrels to. sleep and grow in. To watch the squirrel carry home his store of food is a funny sight. He has two pouches which open, into his mouth, aud which he fills with the food ho gathers,•.> He stuffs then, full with nuts, steels,-roots, or indeed anything good lie happens to meet in his rainblings. Then he pok«s the store dosvu tight, so as (o crowd in a HUl-j more. When his pouches are full he races for home and empties out his supply, using hia forepaws to pull the food out uud pack it away, just as he used them to til} the pouches up. Some squirrels sleep nearly all winter, and do not need any food, but some are much too lively to spend their time dozing, , Perhaps they may run out for a little while on sunshiny tiiijn, but the most of the long winter is spent in their, coxy underground home, v/itli plenty of nuts and herbs to' nibble. The flying squirred, which is about ,the prettiest species of squirrel, has a peculiarly formpd skin, Avhich! reaches from hi^foro to his hind legs. In taking his ( iramonse leaps this skin is stretched out, the increased surface presented to the air holding him up and answering the purpose' of wings. So he can scarcely be said to 1 fly, but it looks' yory much -lite it when we see' what distances he' can dart through tli^ air; ', 'His tail is very large and broad, ujiu" this helps him, too.
