and said with a pleased smile:
"Isn't it beautiful, mamma?"
"Very. Bnt it is very expensive."
"Yes, it is a little expensive, but just

I To the uninitiated male opeotator the
apparel on exhibition appeared to be a
yery ornato ball dress except that there
was no tram and the intricacies of lace
and ruobing seemed rather formless. A
whispered inquiry of the saleslady is

"Is it expensive?"
"Nob very. That one cost $125. We
have a iew more costly, and quite a

W hen a lady purchases such a robo, she
has it made to order, as it is just as
necessary to guarantee a perfect fit in
this class oi goods as in costumes ue

"But who purchases such expensive
nightdresses? At first sight it appears
to be useless extravagance to waste so
much money on a garment seen by but
one person and worn only at nigui.
"You would ba surprisad," aha said
with a smile, "at tho number of expen

a satin-lined box and exposing its con

They are so aooustomod to fitting the
full forms of their English, French and
German customers that they have lost
all faculty for properly draping the lithe,
willowy figure of the average American
girl. So we havo these costumes made
up here. Much of the material is im

the saleslady,' "are made with loose,

Course, entirely upon the personal pref
erence of the parohaser. If the bride is
the fortunate possessor of white, rounded
arms and shoulders of which she is
t'roud, her choice falls naturally upon

certain shades of blue three times before

the Brooklyn girl. In one instince a
slender piece of cardinal ribbon was in
serted around tho neck, half hidden by
the laoe. But this was the exceptional
case of a pronounced brunette. If color

pocket gives the desired effect."
"Is a $300 night-dress really any more
comfortable than a common il gown?"
was asked alter the aales'ady had bowed
out a fault-finding customer.
"Well," she replied reflectively, as a
pair of dimples grew into the corners of
her nrtutb, "it is difficult to say. While
a cheap robe may be equally as com
fortable, you can see for yourself how
much moro beautiful these finer drotsos
are. The first requisite of such a
wrapper is that thore must be nothing
scratchy about it. Everything should
be soft and yiolding to tho touch. So
the more expensive the material the
more down-like it is, and consequently
the more comfortable. A gown is, you
see, the diametrical opposite of a jersey
from a modiste's point of view. The
one is made to lit closely, bringing every
curve into rolief. The other isorn
moro loosely than a day-dress could be
worn, and is snorter and more open man
a street or ball dress."
Further information was vouchsafed
to tho effeot that orders for theso ex
pensive goods came almost entirely from
this city and Brooklyn. Occasionally a
southern eirl purchasing her trousseau
in the oity would order two of the
dresses, but from the wealthy residents

"These turners." the forewoman ex
plained, pointing to two gowns on a table
near by, "are continually being brought
to us to be mendod or to have little rents
in the ruching or lace work carefully re

the first cost, why only very wealtny peo
pie can afford these luxuries. To a lady
that kicks at night, or who is at all rest
less, a dolicatoly made gown is an ex
pansive investment. The least caroless

"Another expense is the laundry work,
which must bo carefully done, after the
removal of the more delicate laco. Taken
altogether, one of these robes is more

and tho speaker glanced across the store
to an ecru poodle that was quietly masti
cating a lady s silk train.
Across the street a large men's f urnibh

and that the purchasers, in most cases,
were ladies. "They buy them forthoir

Ilousouold Dirt and Sickness.
A good deal has been said at various
times about the terrible effects which

of gas inhaled on passing a sewer grat

The high probability is that those sewer

likely to be deleterious, if only
on account of the haste wnicn is made

to passera-by, except to the extent of
produoing nausea or disgust in some

SUrljrrs to Vanity,
Miranda has the loyoliest arms you
ever saw. She is dolighted that short
sleeves are worn, and her gloves are not
nearly so long as other people's. Her
favorite attitude is sitting, with her right
elbow in her left hard. She waves her
hand Wiien she speaks. At a dan, her
right arm is well displayed behind ber
partner's left, if be is tall, or on his
ahoulde: it he is small. Those beautiful
aiais have spoiled Miranda. Sho wears
black, thongh it does coi, suit hor com
plcxion, because her arms look so white
against it. She is always directing ber
attention to those uulucky ones, nutner
ojs enough, who have tbin arms. Who
ever marries her will have to be vey
caretol never, under any circumstances,
to admire another woman's arm. If le
should make a slip in this direction, thore
would, touio a good old phraso, bo

Did yon ever see such dear littlo
feet? Or such perfectly turned ankles?
of more wonderful stockings? Never,
indeed, ller pteity feet are Lesbia's
spocalty. That is why sue wears those
llojrcred stockings and thoso little
pointed toes. That is H'O rea
soi her skirts are so unusually short
Lestia is bright and clover. She is sen
sible about everthing bat feet. She is a
trying girl to talk to. hue will inter
rupt the most interesting oonvernntiou
just when you think you are "both be
ginning to get ou so well," to ask if vou
approve of high heols, or some other
such leading question. She is like Mr.
Dick with King Charles, and must drag
tho topic of feet into everything. It is a
pity; and yet many preicr ner to ior,
whoso feet aro well shaped enough, but
who has "no stylo." Sho talks merrily
and nlcasautlv when vou know her well,
but is rather quiet with strangors. Not
at all the sort of girl to get on. ller
voice is not suftlcieatly loud or
imporious. She does not bustle about
with an air as though the world was
made for hor. bhe wears protty gowns,
but docs not bunch them out, nor minoe
along with a soubrotte like trip, swaying
her gown from side to side, as Lesbia
does. In fact, sbo will nevor look any
thing "in a room," though she may be
well enongh as the presiding spirit of a
home. She is hopelessly unfashionauio.
Lctitia has a waist. It is her great
point, and she is very proud of it. Well
she may be, for it is tho result of patient
years of pain. She has laid on the shrine
of that little waibt many precious things
good health, good temper, and good
spirits. Having sacrificed tho first, the
two others followed as a matter of
course. But then it is such a wondorfnl
waist I It cannot measure more than sev
enteen inches, at the very most. Tho
pressure has madd her nose permanently
red. Not all the waters of Arabywonld
make that nose whito again, but what
matters? Does it not belong to the small
est waist in London? One thing immedi
ately slrikcs the boholdor. lie wonders
how so small a waist can possibly be so
obtrusive. Were it two yards round, it
could not more aggressively insist on Do
ing notiood. Draperies are si arranged
as to lead tho eye down to it, and skirts
are of such a fashion as to guide tho at
tention up to it. Lotitia walks with hor
elbows well out from her sides, so as to
odvortiso, in a pointed way, the faot that
your view is scarcely interrupted by her
slight and well distributed figure. As
she stands talking to yon, she puts a
hand on either side of this wonderful
waist, ond appoars to be curbing hersolf
in, as it wcro. She woars the tightest
of jackets, and never is seen in a dol
man. She gets torriblo colds in winter,
because Bhe will not wrap up. In fact,
ber whole exisence is a burnt offering to
her w..ist. Were she to grow stout, her
objcot in life would begono. Lotitia
denies herself even the gratification of
an excellent appetite in the interests of
a small waist, a solf sacrifice that would
be noble in a better cause.
Mirza has the loveliost complexion in
tho world. Without it, she would be a
perfectly charming girl. With it, sho is
quite a bore. If there is any wind she
is unhappy, "because it makes my
chocks so rough." If the snn shines,
she is miserablo, "because I tan o
frightfully." If it is hot, she grumbles,
"I flueh so painfully." If itisoold,
hor cry is, "I cau't go out to-day, for I
get so blue in cold weather." ller
cheoks are of such an indescribable
texture that roughness has never yot in
vaded them; tanning never approaches
them. She flushes the prettiest dainty
pink you ever saw; ond in cold weather,
a soft color rises in her face, and a wist
ful look comos into her eyes that makes
her quite adorable. Why, then, all those
exouses? Simply becuuse she thinks pre
vention better than cure, and is afraid
of a thousand viewless enemies on her
complexion's account. Sho is a martyr
to her own consciousness. London

irremediable confusion. Ihere are but
25 principal examiners to inquire into
the merits of and report upon the im

Credit of earning their money.
AJ1 inventions are ciassinea wxvmiug
.nt.i.t there beinir 1G3 principal
classes and over 3000 sub-classes. In
this way the work is methodized ana
eimplifled. If the bare fact of the issue
of 20,000 patents in a year does not suf
ficiently indicate the multiplicity of pur
poses for which inventions are designed
it -nni,i ha done bv the minuteness oi

gonins of the country by holding out
the hope of pecuniary reward is almost
the moat beurnoent thing our govern
ment has done. It is impossible to weigh
the importance of the patent sys
tern to i he progress of the
country and its people. But without
exaggeration it may bo said that the most
important element in the develop
ment of tho country has been the ap
plication of thousands of ingenious minds
to the problem of mechanical invention.
This mental force is as valuable as the
physical force of all tho water powers in

But it is all important that tho patent

efllmonoy. It is self supporting even

tin excess of fees ovor tho cost of aduiiu

iners are being enticed away by the
offers of greater compensation by pri

a majority of them go just when they

vate parties offer the ex. miners more for
their services than tho government pays,
shows they are worth moro, and
nnder tho circumstances tho demand of
the examiners for incroaxed remuneration
which has been refused by soveral con
grosses, ought to be granted. The value
of tho patent ofllco to theconutry does
not consist in tho revenue- which tho
government derives from it, and it is
more important that its work should be
well done than that a few thousand dol
lars a yoar should be saved. Altu Culi

When ono meets with on especially
fine melon upon the table, ho is desirous
of saving the sood. Indeed, tho only
way in whioh a strain of melon can be
kept up to its standard or improved, is to
select seeds from tho bost specimens. In
raising melon sood for tho market, tho
growers allow tbo fruit to get much
riper than is desirublo for eating; this
gives a greater yield of plump seeds,
which ore more perfect than if the fruit
were taken in its best condition for out
ing. In tho operations of tho kitchon,
the contests of tho melon ore sure to bo
thrown owny, ond w hoever would savo
seed from them must attend to tho open
ing of tho fruit himself, l'luco tho con
tents of tho best melon in a bowl or other
convenient vessel, cover them with wa
ter, and allow them to stand for a
few days to ferment. They should bo
looked to stirred every day, and whon
it is found that tho seeds full from
thoir attachments to tho bottom of
the vessel, tho refuse is to bo removed,
the seed washed and sprend out to dry
upon boards or a cloth. Tho socds of
water melons aro much less likely than
those of other molons to bo perfect at
the tlmo tho fruit is in eating condition;
hence seed-growers allow wuter melons
to got dead-ripe or rotten ripe bofare
they beparuto the seeds. Of the saods
separated when the fruit is eaten, a share
will grow, ouch seoita should oo col
lected, wahhed and dried. In sowing
waterrael jn seeds of any kind, it is well
to recollect that a largo majority aro
worthless, and to bo liberal accordingly.
With onenmbers, allow a few of the ear
liest and best shaped to ripen on the
vines for seed. All others, if not wanted
for use, Bhould be removed, and not
allowed to exhaust tho vines uselessly.
Whon thoroughly ripe, gather the cu
cumbers and cut thorn lengthwise, scrape
out the contents into a vessel, and allow
thorn to ferment until the seeds are freed
from mucilage which surrounds thorn,
and can be washod and driod. Ameri

(jlood Advice to Brides.
When the bride on her bridal journey
is a sensiblo young person, she will keep
her silk suit in ber trunk tor a suitaoio

was picked away in ber trunk. The

have been, as be looked, quite com tort

and taking the vtage for the further pull

chatter to see bow confidently the
little bride climbed into the

shoulJers, and her face whito with the
cold. Probably in bur modest outfit
there was a flannel drew or a woolon
stuff of some kind, intended for the
house. If she had put tha', on for the
journey, and saved her best black silk
for borne uses, sho would be more nearly
on a level with the city persons who left
their diamonds at the bank, and had
taken two woolen suits and one cotton
gown for a fortnight's journey among
the mountains. Home, and not hotel
