ILK petticoats are a delusion and a snare to any woman who cannot afford a new one every month. Few articles of apparel appear more enticing when they are displayed ill the shops, and their lightness and delicate coloring make one feel that one's •wardrobe is incomplete without a specimen oC these ruffled and furbelowed garments. But alas for the women of moderate circumstances who •buys a silk petticoat, especially it' It be of taffeta, with tlio idea that she will wear it and "got the good of it," as-tho saying goes. The friction of walking cuts every fold of the ruffles, the slightest dampness shrinks the cord In the border of the flounces, so that thn latter are all puckered at the edge, while the foot of the petticoat comes to rags very shortly. For occasional wear under a thiu evening dress the silk petticoat will do very well, but as human nature's daily food it is not satisfactory. Mohair, sateen and mo- reen are far better investments. They ^ are cheaper in the first place, much more durable and keep their freshness longer. White petticoats of muslin, cambric or lawn are exceedingly pretty and very fashionable at present. Trimmed with lace and ruffles, they arc- as dainty as heart could desire and possess the merit o£ looking as well as new every time they are laundered. The petticoat requires to be very wide and to have a number of full flounces in order to keep its bou!> fancy, but.mus'In and lawn are so light that this abundant trimming is no burden, save to the person who does the Ironing. The illustration shows one of the fashionable white costumes. The skirt of white piciue is entirely plain. The shart boloro Is of cream lace over cream taffeta and has square fronts opening over a full chemisette of white mousseUno de soie. The draped corselet is of lizard green liberty satin. The sleeve is o£ cream lace over cream taffeta and has a lace frill at the wrist. The collar- Is of white moussellne de sole. en's entertainments. At one recently given on the wide piazza of a beautiful country home the hostess handed each guest a small square of linen nnd silks and needles, with the request that each one design and embroider some object In forty-five minutes. The names of tho workers were written on this and e;ich one was examined and voted upon-for its defects and excellencies. Prizes were given for the most cor- rsc'.c drawing, the most original, the best execution, the worst and for other polnls. so that every gt'.cst was possessed of one. The notion was amus- iug because unexpected ar.d novel. The prizes were needle cases, emeries, thimbles and other triflea In silver. (••pimlKli Flounce*. Trimmed skirls have reintroduced tie Spanish flounce, that most graceful oE all trimmings. It is now on a rather seunt sUirt and easily solves the difficulty of how to secure width at the bottom with little fullness at the top. The Spanish ilounce should begin fit the back about four inches from the belt and from, thanes gradually narrow until It does r.ot extend above the kucc in frost. It rar.y be finished with Sl£iis nf IJntiirnluS JIintloK. Tho latest silk petticoat may be a forerunner of the much despised bustle. It. is a billowy creation made with a deep ruffle, through the bottom ol which a fine reed is run. At the back the lower half of thn skirt hangs in folds. There are six folds, and through eacit one a reed Is run which makes the skirt stand out with a certain aggressive stiffness at the bottom, though at the waist line it is very flat. All the new silk- skirts have either the fine reeds to aid them In standing out, or they are lined from the bottom to a tew inches above the knee with hair cloth. Women ol fashion iu buying a ellk petticoat these days order a shorter silk skirt to match, as well as a corset. Brocade is the silk most in favor, and both the skirts and corset are exquisitely embroidered with the owner's monogram. Lace flounces trim both skirts, and a tiny frill of the same pattern of lace finishes the coreet at the top. -TXT T TIP IT" 1 8,000 and 10,000 fowls raised nnj-.ii 1JN LUUV. on ( . hls f aml t | iay are OCBI THEY HAVE FINE HOUSES AND VERY PLEASANT STREETS. a plain band of- cm broidery, but the .newest thir.g is a ruche-, very fully plaited.

A dolley tea' is the newest in worn- Doom <>f ilii Toothpick Shoo. The pointed toe shoe is going out of s';yle. Such is the decree of fashion, and when fashion dictates few men or won-.en dispute the decree. Hence the passing of tho "toothpick" point is 1 a fact that is just forcing Itsalf on manufacturers ;;nd dealers. Some of the leading shoe dealers confirmed the statement that in Us place is appearing the more comfortable round toed stylo of footwear. The exodus of the "toothpick" marks an epoch in the history of footgear. Tho ultra fashionable youth will have no trouble in standing squarely upon their own feet, instead of bearing down upon their neighbors' pedal extremities with the useless projection of the old style shoe. There have been many style* of shoes worn by different styles of men, but the pointed toe maintained its supremacy longer than any of them. But, like all else, it has had to give way to the dictates of Dame Fashion, and fall stylos show a wider range of round and square toed shoes than has been in stock for many a long day, while-there is less variety of pointed toed shoes seen than ever before. A representative shoe company said: "fn the future pointed toes may be worn more or less for evening wear, but they will eventually become oat of date for the- reason that they are more apt to break around the tips, and the dealers are accused of selling an inferior article. The shoe that is coming in the place oC the pointed shoe is one that is known as the 'bulldog,' which has a raised, round, blunt toe. The reason for calling the shoe 'bulldog' is because of the shape of the toe, which is something like a dog's heart in form. This will be the fashionable shoe this fall." The manager of another store said: "Pointed shoes are going out of style for the reason that different designs in footwear are merely a fad or fancy. The 'bulldog' shape is a more comfortable shoe and is a more sensible looking article than tho old style of pointed shoe." III> Only Wi»h. . .

This farm for 17 years has been sending fowls for breading purposes to 'all parts of ttie world. Only fancy- breeds of fowl aro dca'lt In. Many a poor family in the crowded cities of the cast would think themselves well provided for If they were onehalf as well-housed af. some of the poultry raised on this f:irm. More time and trouble-is spent by the proprietors in getting proper food and water for their feathered charges .than is spent by -many a head of a family with 'half a dozen children to provide for.

One day Just as he had eaten his midday meal of .boot heels and colcl-aliced atmosphere and kerosene barrel staves he saw a man going along the street with a large looking-glass under his arm. The .goat watched the man and saw him set the mirror down by a gate and go inside the house after some more things that he was moving. Then lha scat stammored with his tail a few times and went up to see if he could eat the mirror.

If the unfortunate social barrier -bci twcen town and country is to be thrown down the initiative im-ust be without doubt, from the aide of t-ha country, says the Quarterly Review. The leading inhabitants of the towns -have n. great deal too ifiucli proper P7'ide 10 ajlow of their endeavoring to fnrcc or intrigue themselves into a society -which would net welcome their prc.sc-iice; but they would-certainly reciprocate any advances. 'J.iat might be made. C" course, a. cert::in amount ol trouble would be required in the first instance on the part of t'he -Jiosts an-d 'hostesses who set itheaselves to follow the excellent lead 'given so far by a few, a very few, owners of country lionscG. It is 'always much easier to remain in a. social groove than to n:ake excursions beyond it. It i-s very 'taucli easier for a gre.it lady to fill her house from year to year with people who nre sure to kno-w one another -and who, therefore, need little or no lconir.s after, than to make judicious selections -of guests representing different social atmospheres aiul modes of life and to exercise the tactful management req-nlrod to secure th-at parties so composed shall run smoothly and pleasantly. But after all, it may surely be claimed that -it is precisely in the Cheerful and ready and successful treatment of such difficulties as those connected with the fusion of town and country society that the inherited graces and aptitudes w-hich are the natural pride of an aristocracy should find one of the fields for their happiest display.

Bis trees nfford shade to the feathered population'of this town, and in that portion of tbe farm devoted to the wt'b-footed fowls large artificial ponds and winding brooks .have boon constructed, through whic'h there is flowing a constant stream of water. One peculiar feature of this farm is that all of the fowls are raked by artificial means.

Each year, between the 1st of December and Jan. 15, competent judges visit the 'farm and "score" all the stock.
