WOMAN AND HOME, CURRBfit Hl^ltS AfJb SU60ES- tlOMS f?OR HOUSEWIVES. Som* Jfe* t>«»fgrng jo tvoman's ing Apparel — t-or Small Girls—Some JKerlpe* far tli« Culinary Department •^-Notes ol Fashion. StstMt Girls, tarffO fiat*. The smaller the girl the larger the hat, seems to be Dame Fashion's idea nowadays. Wide brimmed leghorn hats and hats of coarse straw are pic- tm-esquely betit to protect the small faces beneath from the too ardent rays of the summer sun. A French hat for a young lady of 7 is tnade of fancy straw, black and butter color combined. Silk petalled scarlet poppies aie ranged in a cluster at the side and nod their heads over a generous bow of scarlet satin ribbon. Leghorn hats are abloom with flowers and a delicate shade of crepe dc Chine fUst-t. Tak8 one veal heart, wash aftd folly remote the veisels..- Stuff with two c'upfuls of bread crumbs, otofr quarter cupful of chopped pork sea* soned With salt and pepper, a sprig of thyme or parsley. Moisten with hot Water. When filled, cover the ends with white cloth, 'sewed fast to retain the stuffing. Put in a pan With oM pint of water. Dust over flour, salt and pepper. Cover and leave oh top of stove until steamed through. Put in the oven, with font- potatoes cut lengthwise, to toast Baste often. When done to a nice brown, remove cloth, put into hot dish with potatoes and serve. ______ An Intellectual tetnptes*. The empress of Japan, who recently celebrated her silver Wedding, is not only a very pretty woman, but very intellectual, and has great strength and beauty of character. Her particular hobby is the 1'eeresses' school, which she has established in Tokio, and she has a suite of apartments there. SMALL GIBLS, L:\EGE II ATS. is used to face the bendable brim. One of the prettiest leghorn hats seen this season was trimmed with Marguerites. The crown was almost covered by a rosette of white silk mulle. Under the wide brim a row of tiny white rosettes rested upon the hail 1 . Platted satin ribbon or lawn is a new trimming for children's hats. Sometimes it is arranged to entirely cover the brim. Dainty lIuBllii Gmvim. Now we shall wear muslins, and there is everything to tempt us. What do you sav to a white, soft Indian muslin with tiny Pompadour bouquets, divided by lace insertion? A fashion- Fifth avenue modiste makes the collar bands of her gowns to perfection, and she is using a great deal of galon, formed of gold and bronze paillettes, with circles and ovals of pink coral, sat in a frame of paillettes. The Small Summer Ctrl. Morning- dresses for very small girls are now sold with sun bonnets to match. For country wear nothing is more sensible than the sun bonnet, and the baby girl makes a quaint little picture in her gingham frock, with its long skirt, putt'ed sleeves and old- fashioned sun bonnet tied under her eli In. All the fashionable dresses for child- Jen are made to be worn with a yuimpe. The dress is frequently cut with a square yoke, defined by a line of beading, through which ribbon is run. The sleeves are finished with a cuff of the same beading, the ribbon tying in a little bow at the wrist. Children's skirts are as full as ever, the sleeves are puffed to such a degree that the wee girl is broad enough for two babies, instead of one. Apple Core three large apples, bake them, remove the skia aud add one cupful of po^vdeved sugar and the white of an egg-, JJeat all together very Jig-fct. The longer it is beaten the lighter and waiter it will be. Take one half-pint of inilk, the yolk of one egg, one teaspoonful of povnstarch, » very iittle salt and one spoonful pf sugar. Put juto a double boiler and stir yntil it thickens, Flavor aecQi-ding to taste- into a glass dish until cqlcj it. Holland Up to Date. The plain gown of holland is out of date. Holland gowns designed for this summer are as elaborate as they are cool. One of the jauntiest of these old-time gowns is made with a cutaway coat, the square-shaped rovers being faced with dark-blue vesting, with a tan dot. The cuflrs of the full sleeves are also of the vesting and the waistcoat matches' to perfection. An oblong- shaped tab of the holland is fastened back, near the waist line, by unusually large pearl buttons. The gown is exceedingly chic. _ _ Hat-Pins Are Dangerous Weapons, The Daily Graphic grins at us because of the formidable hat-pins we wear. In spiteful hands they become dangerous weapons capable of doing- damage quite disproportionate to their size. A woman was sent to prison the other day for stabbing a policeman with a pin, says an English writer. But cm the other side, 1 once heard of a servant maid who, stopped on the road by some ruffian one night, successfully warded oft' an attack by means of the same Liliputiau weapon, Thus it may be used for defense as well as offense, and I am not at all sure that the possible good does not neutralize the evil. Fried Apples. AVipe, core and out into eighths four tart apples. Put a tablespoon!' ut of butter into aofrying- pau, uud when very hot lav the apples in it so that they will just touch each oth^r. Brown aud turn. Sprinkle with sugar and brown on the other side. -It not perfectly tender put ou a cover and steam a inoineut or two. liemove to a warm dish and fry the others the same way aud sprinkle ail with sugar. very hot. ____^__ Spouse.

DR. TALMACEdfotHEtSAOEDY Crime* TnntHnerablO Mate tliglr In tit* t*a*lftjr» «» Mefc and for Urine i)t*»»—Arnold Uotr«»ert till* tirtinirfr !<j r MU toltttt Attire. /rif, Aug. 5.—fiev. Dr. Talmage, who is now in Melbourne, Australia, on bis round-the-world tour, has chosen as the subject of his sertrtott for to-day through the press: "The Tragedy of Dress," the text selected being 1 Pet, iii; 3-**: "Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning 1 of plaiting the hair, and the Wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; but let it be the hidden man of the heart." That we should all be clad is proved by the opening of the first wardrobe in Paradise, xvith its apparel of dark green. That We should all, as far as our means allow us, be beautifully and gracefully appareled, is pt-dved by the fact that God never made a wave but he gilded it with golden sunbeams, or a tree but he garlanded it with blossoms, or a sky but he studded it with stars, or allowed even the smoke of a furnace to ascend but columned and turreted abd domed and scrolled it into outlines of indescribable gracefulness. When I &ce the apple orchards of the spring and the pageantry of the autumnal forests I come to the conclusion that if. nature ever docs join tlie church, while she may be u Quaker in the silence of her worship, sho never will be a, Quaker in the style of her dress. Why the notches of a fern leaf, or the stamen of a water lily';' Why, when the day departs, does it let the folding doors of heaven stay open so long, when it might g-o in so quickly? One summer morning 1 1 saw an army of a million spears, each one adorned with a diamond of the first water—I mean the grass with the dew on it. When the prodignl came home his father not only pnt a coat on his back but jewelry on his hand. Christ wore a beard, Paul, the bachelor apostle, not afflicted with any sentimentality, admired the arrangement of a woman's hair when he said, in his epistle, "If a woman have long hair, it is a c-lory unto her." There will bo a fashion in heaven as on earth, but it will be a different kind of fashion. It will decide the color of the dress; and the population of that country, by a beautiful law, will wear white. I say these things as a background to my sermon, to show you that I have no prim, precise, prudish or cast' iron theories on the subject of human apparel. But the goddess of fashion has set up her throne in this world, and at the sound of the timbrels we are all expected to fall down aud worship. The old and new testament of her Bible are the fashion plates. Her altars smoke with the sacrifice of the bodies, minds and souls of ten thousand victims. In her temple four people stand in the organ loft, and from them there comes down a cold drizzle of music, freezing on the ears of her worshipers. This goddess of fashion has become a rival of the Lord of heaven and earth, and it is high time that we unlimbered our. batteries against this idolatry. When I come to count the victims of fashion, I find as many masculine as feminine. Men make an easy tirade against woman, as though she were the chief worshiper at this idolatrous shrine, and/no doubt some men in the more conspicuous part of the pew have already cast glances at the more retired part of the pew, their look a prophecy of a generous distribution. My sermon shall be as appropriate for one end of the pew,as for the other. Men are as much the idolaters of fashion as women, but-they sacrifice on a different part of the altar. With me n the fashion , goes to cigars and club rooms and yachting parties and wine suppers. In the United States the men chew up and smoke one hundred millions of dollars' worth of tobacco every year. That is their fashion. In London, not long ago, a man died who started in life with seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars, but he ate it all up in gluttonies, sending his aarents to all parts of the earth for some rare delicacy for the palate, sometimes one plate of food costing him three or four hundred dollars. He ate up his whola fortune, and only one guinea left; with that he bought a woodcock, and had it dressed in the very best style, ate it, gave two hours for digestion, then walked out on Westminster bridge and threw himself into the Thames, aud died, doing on a large scale what you and I have often seen done on a small Bcale, But men do not abstain froin millinei-y atfd elaboration of skirt through any superiority of humility. Jt is, only because sijph apendages would be a blockade to business, What would sashes and trains three and a half yards long do in a stock market? And yet wen are the dibcir pies of fashion just as much as women- Some of them wear boots so tight they can hardly walk in the paths of righteousness- An.4 there are men who buy expensive suits of clothes and never pay for them,, and who gp through the streets in great , stripes of color like animated checker' boards. J hfty these th»ngra teecause ,J want to show you that I a>» ^partial in my discourse, and that both, s,e3?es, in the language of the surrogate's of» tice, sljall "share .and share, a^iike." AS Gad may help in*, J §h.p\v you what are the destroying an4 influences pf inordinate f^sUio The first baleful iafluencg J is in fraud, illimitable and ghastly. Jlq you know that ArpoJ}4 9? tU» v^vglu. tion proposed tQ fell tlm fiPWHtiy j ft order to get ffl&Bfey t« sii^pwt his, s wa,rdr,o,b£?! j (J %"4 tbia psapie Sbst fall 1« Ifefe 66%nir> tS §& W&a Id II dth«f tfaases ctffhbln&a< ..,.._. was it that sent Oilmah to* the penitentiary, and K Philadelphia Mottoti to the watering of stocks, and the life insurance presidents to perjured statements abotit their assets,and has completely upset our American finances? What was it that ttvefthfrew the United States secretary at Washington, the crash of \vhose fall Shook the continent? But why should 1 go to these famous defaulting to show what men wilt do in order to keep up great home style and expensive wardrobe, when you and 1 know scores of men who are put to their wits' end, and . af-u lashed ffOin January to Dedeittbef ia the attempt. Our politicians may theorize until the expiration of their terms of office is to tha best way of improving- our monetary condition in this country; it will be of no use, and things will betto better until we learn to put oh our heads, and backs, and feet, and hands no more than we cats pay for. There are clerks in stores and banks on limited salaries who, in the vain at j tempt to keep the wardrobe of their family as showy as other folk's wardrobes, are dying- of muffs, and dia* tnonds, and shawls, and high hats, and they have nothing- left except what they give to cigars and wine suppers, and they die before their time and they will expect us ministers to preach about them as though they were the victims of early piety, and after a high class funeral, with silver handles at the side of the coffin, of extraordinary brightness, it will be found out that the undertaker is cheated out of his legitimate expenses! Do not send me to preach a funeral sermon of a man who dies like that I blurt out the whole truth,' and tell that he was strangled to death by his wife's ribbons! Our countries are dressed to death. You are not surprised to find that the putting up of one public building in New York cost millions of dollars more than it ought to have cost, when you find that the man who gave out the contracts paid more than $500,000 for his daughter's wedding dress, Cashmeres of $1,000 each are not rare on Broadway. It is estimated that there aie 10,OoO women in these two cities who have expended on their personal array $4,000 a year! What are men to do in order to keep up such wardrobes? Steal—that is the only respectable thing they can do! During the last fifteen years there have been innumerable fine businesses shipwrecked on the wardrobe. The temptation comes in this way: A man thinks more of his family than of all the world outside, and if they spend the evening in describing to him the superior wardrobe of the family across the street, that they can not bear the sight of, the man is thrown on his gallantry and on his pride of family, and, without translating his feelings into plain language, he goes into extortion and issuing of false stock, and skillful penmanship in writing somebody else's name at the foot of a promissory note; aud they all go down together—the husband to the prison, the wife to the sewing machine, the children to be taken care of by those who were called poor relations. O! for some new Shakespeare to arise and write the tragedy of human clothes. Act the first of the tragedy.—A plain but beautiful home. Enter, the newly-married pair. Enter, simplicity of.manner and behavior. Enter, as much happiness as is ever found in one home. Act the second.—Discontent with the humble home. Enter, envy. Enter, jealousy. Enter, desire Of display. Act the third,—Enlargement penses. Enter all the queenly makers. Enter, the French milliners Act the fourth.—The tip-top of society. Eater, princes and'prirtcesses of high life. Enter, magnificent plate and equipage, Enter, everything splendid. Act the fifth, and last.—Winding up of the scene. Enter, the assignee. Enter, the sheriff". Enter, the creditors. Enter, humiliation. Enter, the wrath of God. Enter, the contempt of society. Enter, death. Now, let the silk curtain drop on the stage. The farce is ended and the lights are out. Will you forgive me if I say in tersest shape possible that some of the men have to forge' and to perjure and to swindle to pay for their wives' dresses? I will say it, whether you forgive me or not Again, inordinate fashion is the foe of all Christian alms-giving. Men and women put so much in personal display that they often have nothing for Ood and the pause of suffering humanity, A Christian man cracking his Palais Royal glove across the back by shutting up his hand to hide the J cenfhe puts into the pppr-bpx! A ClNusti&n woman, at the story of the Hottentots, crying copious tears into a steo handkerchief, and then giving a 2 cent piece to the collection, jing it down under the bills sp pepple will not know but it was a $10 gold piece!

J., the fcause of mtesilons was fceiaf presented one Sabbath, and a plea lot the ehattty of th6 people was being made, when an old Christian man in the audience lost his balance, and said right ottt in the nlidst of the Sermon: "Mr. Talinage*, how are we to give liberally to these grand and glorious causes when our families dress as they do?" I did not answer" that question. It was the Only time in my life when 1 had fiothiag to sayt Insatiate fashion also belittles the intellect Our minds ate* enlarged Of they dwindle just in proportion to the importance of the subject on which we constantly dwelt Can you imagine anything more dwarfing to the human: intellect than the study of fashion? I see men on the street who, judging from their elaboration, 1 think intlst have taken two hours to arrange their appafeL After a few years of that kind of absorption, which one of McAllister's magnifying glasses • will be powerful enough to make the man's character visible? They all land in idiocy. I have seen men at the sum* mer watering-places, through fashion, Lhe mere wreck of what they once were. Sallow- of cheek Meagre of limb. Hollow at the chest. Showing no animation save in rushing across a room to pick Up a lady's fan. Simper* ing along Ihe corridors, the same com* pliments they simpered, twenty years ago. A New York lawyer at United States hotel, Saratoga, within our Tearing, rushed across a room to say to a sensible woman, "You are as sweet as peaches!" The fools of iashion are myriad. Fashion not only destroys the body, but it makes idiotic ;he intellect , . The most ghastly death beds on earth are the one where a man dies of de- irium tremens and the other where a woman dies after having sacrificed all !ier faculties of body, mind and soul in the worship of fashion. My friends, we must appear in judgment to answer for what we have worn on our bodies as xvell as for what repentances we have exercised with our souls. On that day I see coming in, Beau 13rum- mel of the last century without his cloak, like which all England g-ot a cloak, and without his cane ^like which all England got a cane; without his snuff box, like which all England got a snuff box—he,. the fop of ages, particular about everything but his morals; and Aaron Burr, without the otters that down to old aee he showed n pride, to prove his early wicked gal- antries; and Absalom without his liair; and Marchioness. Pompadour without her titles; and Mrs. Arnold, the belle of Wall street, when that was the center of fashion, without her fripperies of vesture. And in great haggard ness they shall go away into eternal expatriation; while among the queens of heavenly society will be found Vashti, who wore the modest veil before the palatial bacchanalians; and Hannah, who annually made a little coat for Samuel at the temple; and Grandmother Lois, the ancestress of Timothy, who imitated her virtue; and Mary, who gave Jesus Christ to the world; and many of you, the wives, and mothers and sisters and daughters of tlie present Christian church, who through great tribulation are entering into the kingdom of God. Christ announced who would make up the royal family of. heaven when he said, "Whosoever doeth the will of God, the same is my brother, my sister, my mother." AMUSING FRIVOLITIES.
