Tho young woman who used to .pride herself on possessing forty-seven bangles has wearied of them, aind they taive gone the way. of tlie pins. Then, she ousted to cover the Cronit of her bodice with what sflie called "stick pins," and she wore as many of tliem as she could buy, bog, borrow or steal The stick pins have gone the -way of all flesh, or all fads. After them upprairod tlie huge gold heart (Suit has swun-g around the neck and luiined after the young woman Dr. Du Maurler made famous. Then, and then is now, she encircled the upper part of her body with chains. There Is u thin pold chain with a gold purse on the end of U; there is a gold chain swung at Intervals with pearls, that has n. tiny gold-framed monocle on the end of lit; there le another (fold chain that has a watch on. the end of It; and there Is another gold chain which has the end tucked out of sight imd dosen't explain for what purpose It Is used. Of course there Is no sense .to this collection of chains. There Is good sense in 'the one chain on which t'Jte watch- Is put for -It •!»-. less:likely to be lost when It forms the termination of a chain than when stuck on tho bodice with an Insecure pin, or dangling at the belt from an equally Insecure chatelata. Watches are chenp nowadays, and so, unless your -watch 1s particularly unique It ls> not worth while wearing It Though some old fashioned people wear a watch that they may know the time. . ••'-••'.- ••"'. A FAISOTNATJING WATCH was shown''to. me.not'very 1 long ago. Its ease, .was. In the^'sUape of a beetle and the darling had'-Ms back'thickly studded with emeralds, wMctbri h"1s "tummy" was the.face'.of; .the watch,' nnd you literally pulled his leg when you wanted to : make him .go. A great many years ago, "before any of us were dreamed ofy "the 1 stoplest ktad of n watch cost nearly $2,000, and it took one year to make it. But" what watches they did make In, tihose days: It was said tlmt the Emperor Charles had the doubtful pleasure of carry ing a watch that weighed' twenty-sevim pounds. In those days men were strong: Marie Stuart, hi addition to her liking for many good tilings, had a positive weakness for watches. Not the kind of watches that represented flowers, or fruit pieces or anything cheerful, oh, no! To please her n watch must he concealed In n. tiny skull, or come out of a crystal coffln. The watch that slie bequeathed to JJary Seton was a marvelous one. Do you remember Whyte«-Melv.lUe's book —"The Four Maries?" I Itavo never forgotten the rhyme, which snys: "Last night there were four Maries; today tfliere are but three, There was Mary Beaton and Mary Seton aud Mary Carralchael and me." FAVORITE JINGLES. How those jingles cling to me! But, the Queen left to Mary Seton a wn,tch, enclosed In a gold skull. On the forehead of tlie skull were the symbols o-f death, -the -scythe amd the .hourglass. At the back .was old Father Time, and on the top of the hend was .fclic Garden of Ed<m anG Crucifixion. 'The waihch was opened by reversing the skull; Inside, stood'tihe Hold Family, surrounded by angels and receiving the shepherds. The works constituted the brains, while the dial plate wa« the palate. This watch te said to be now In the lender family, and to keep perfect tl-rae, Many of the old watches have both Inside and outside cases. The outer case -was usually •elaborately carved and could be entirely separate from tihe watch. One that was picked up In an old shop In L'ondon has ft group, formed of Ptter, Paul and Luke on the back, In high relief; St. Peter wears his hair In a platt, looped and tied with a rlUbo'n, while St. Luke, telling of his profession, IMS an old fashioned medicine case In his hand. It was evidently made in the days WHEN A SPADE WAS CALU3D A Spade and' people dotted tbfelr I'« and crossed the* t's. A newspaper announced this week thnt " (Hie vertical writing is being taught In all the public schools." How sorry I feel for tihe children! They have Just learned to write the sharp English hand and tluey are expected to take this strafeiht up-and-ttowa om'caind to become adepts at lit. I have never been extremely fond of Napoleon "Bonn-, pnrti'/ But I sa.w something' that he said Hie other day—that te I saw It the other clay, but I presume; unless It was through the medium of a spiritualist, that he said it a, long time ago, It was this: "Xo man, dealing with a press of business, can toe expected to write a legible hand; all he ca.n do is to set down dots and leave It to others to decipher Miem." Since reading that Napoleon has seemed, more 'humane and less self-made. Of course It Is a. great thing' .. ' : TO BE ABLE TO WRITE CLEARLY, man, :aind more. Fifty Years Ago.

And that .means that Ayer's Pilla acoomplish what is promised for them; they cure where others fail. It was fitting, therefore, that the world-wide popularity' 0 ' * h .? 8 ? PlP B sbo" 13 be recognized by'the World'B Fair .medal of 1893 —a fact which emphasizes the record: SO Years of Cures. ble writer. I think I have solved the reason of this. At that happy time when most of us were going to school, TFO-began to write "Perseverance is tihe secret of success" In round, copybook hand, with bea.utl- ful shadlogs, tall "1's" and short "t's," •Ts" properly dotted, and "y's" that didn't have curled tails like "q's." In the midst of this search for success we were suddenly stopped, and by order of the school-teacher we began to write "If at first you don't succeed, try, try ajraln," In the angular English hand, wMch had 'meantime become fashionable. Now, no human being, especially at the mature age of thirteen, could, after years of 'application at round "O's" suddenly malke sharp "O's" with success; she could not, in a moment, drag draw down from their height all her "1's," leave her "t's" uncrossed, and count shading altogether out : So a combination resulted that Is a hybrid -handwriting, quite on a, par with that of the great Napoleon 1 ; but blnme the school-teachers of the past. Personally I have .the kindest feeling 'In the world toward people 'who write Indistinctly, but tlhere are some things in letter writ- Ing tba.t I do not forgive. •IDHOSYN|ORfrMClllE)R IN WiRiTOlNC. One Is pale'gray paper with the opinion of the writer put upon it in white Jink. Another is a sto of wthd-eh' Miss •Ellen Terry is guilty; she writes on- the tMucst of paper wilth the blackest of Ink 'and the heaviest of qnills. The effect is mystertous. and yon rtro rather pleased n.t Ms being thought thn.t you understand Chinese hieroglyphics, but yon never really mafcc out the combination. The writing is plain enough but the paper Is so thin that "t's" nnd "y's" and "q's" that belong on the other side force their way through and m'ix tn where they don't belong, and the result Is pandemonium. Mr. Irving writes a curious, •old-fashioned hafld.'not absolutely distinct, and re<]'U>irlrag a clue to start with; but after you know what he Is writing about then the mystery Is solved without any fm-tiher tironble. Yoirog Southern writes a small, neat, distinct 'hand, thn.t In some way or otflwr suggest the w«j his clothes fit him. Mrs. Kendal writes a clear, rather small hand, but her letters have a wny 'of running off t'bat suggest the decided individuality' on the part of the writer. PAN-NT DAViENPORT'S HAND. Fanny Daivcnport writes a hlg, clear hand, easy to read, and hinting at the generous, oli-arltaWe n-atsuine of the woman. Wilson Barrett -writes a gmnll but a very distinct hand. Yvette Quilbert writes on, tiny cards, tihat have her own 'attracMTe^ace In the corner, and her writing Is French; a.iid, wtoen 1 say French, I mean ceat and dainty. Cardinal Gibbons writes a magnificent cle'D-r hand, that seems to convey with it the blessing of the man from whom even tho little children are glad-to receive a smile, because they know Intuitively how "Blessed-are the pm-v. in heart." What will be the result all over the country of the Increase In vertical -writing?—I' <!»' not' know. People who do not like me say that 1 write abominably:' those who -do and yet who wish to be truthful/those who love me and don't care to twist me because of mine age .fljid mine Infirml- tie-S call It characteristic.

What sort of n, winter gown are you going to get? Here's a bit o'f aclvice.for you: If yom are in tho haiblt of buying one pretty frock to tihe autum do not permit yourself to run after false gods In the shape of over bright colors, or indeed, to select it for any color that Is announced as the' rage. Nobody wearies of a popular color as soon as tlie woman who has to wear It often. Many women, after they pass thirty, elect always to wear Mack, Irut by black itlhey do not mean gruesome looking gowns, but black -with dalraty trimmings upon, it, or black as a background for another shade, but always black for the dress proper. Naturally, this makes it possible to remodel one's frocks; nnd I advise women who haven't a great deal of money to spend on their gowns to dopt the black costuming. Give one of your neighbors the privilege of being the fink woman to appear In heir winter frock. Some day I am going to write a sermon—a sermon on the wise spending of money and the proper dressing of one's self.
