Children's gowns aro models of grace
this year. Take, for instance, the little
coats. The prettiest of them are made
with wide flaring collars covered with
coarse lace and edged with fur. A
strip of this fur also runs down the
front. The sleeves flare below tho el
bow and have underpuffs of lace quite
like those of "grownups." Charming

children are going to wear it during
the coming reason. These silk coats
nro mostly of peau do sole, and they
aro lined with flowered Bilks and trim

Accordion plaiting plays a large part
in tho spring and summer frocks. It is
combined with bands of flue embroid

for a dress of tlds description.
The pretty child's gown here shown
is made of cream brllllantino accordion

sleeves are composed of two ruliles
which end at tho elbow. Tho belt and

Snnvr From n Clenr Sky.
The most wonderful snowstorms of
all that may bo seen every winter in
tho Adirondacks aro those that prevail
when tho sky is cloudless. Of these
there are several varieties. Every week
or two we would see what looked like
a fog form about the distant hills and
then come drifting across the creek
valley. Doubtless it was a real snow
laden cloud thnt had been drifting
along until it struck our level (1,300
feet above the sea) in the. Adirondacks,
when the conditions became favorable
for tho release of its feathery burden.
We saw these clouds fill tho air with
flakes that were driven along almost
horizontally by a strong gale, although
the tops of our old hemlocks and
spruces rose into the clear air and un
obstructed sunlight above the highest
level of the snow producing air strat
um. We even saw the snow so thick
in tho air about us that tho trunks of
trees six feet above the earth were
not visible, although tho treetops could
be ' seen, and the sun shone down
through the shallow storm with
strength enough to cast distinct shad
ows. We have stood on a quiet, sunlit hill
top and looked down into a valley less
than 100 feet below us. where a snow
storm was raging with violence and
the temperature was frigid. Scrlb-'ner's.

The Wends, who, wo believe, are the
ancestors of the modern Prussians, are
tho center of many legends. The Pled
Piper of Ilamelin was a Wend; so also
was the piper of tho Harz mountains,
who appeared so many days a year and
played unearthly tunes and whosoever
heard at once fell into a frenzy, from
which there was uo escaping. All those
pled and weird pipers assembled once a
year at the Brocken, where there was a
general carnival, tho arch fiend lead

rolling around and fiddling on the
skulls of horses and the pipers adding
the concert of their unholy instru

incessant and often almost deafening,

A big. good natured farmer was
awaiting the suburban train, accompa

Two soiis of Britain stood near hhu.
Tho dog strayed away from his owner,
who was reading a newspaper.
"Hoy!" called tho farmer. "Como

diately ran to his f"ot.
One of tho Englishmen approached
"May I ask," he said, "what you call
ed that dog?"
"Locksmith," said the farmer.
"And why, pray?"
"Because every time I kick him he
makes a holt for tho door."
There was a general laugh, in which
tho Englishman joined.
When he returned to his companion,
"Morft extraordinary name that man
over there calls his dog."
What?" asked his friend.
"Locksmith," replied the first Briton.
"And why such'n namoV."
