This leaves room for a chemisette of

Gingham is reveling in a return to
popular favor. It is largely used iq tho
manufacture of shirt waists, having
been found more serviceable than linen,
percale or batiste, and being quite as
pretty. It comes in all sorts of plaids
find stripes, and is thus in keeping with
the general tnste in patterns.

he stared with open-mouthed wonder
ut the books with which the shelves of
the bookcases were lined.
"Are you fond of reading?" asked the
parson, as he noticed the wandering
gaze of his visitor.
"Well, yes," returned the old farmer.
"I'm glad to hear it," said the par
son, "and I should be pleased to lend
you a book to take home with you if
you wish. Just take any of them that
you think you'd like to read, sir."
"Oh, I hain't no hand at selcctln',"
returned the old man, sheepishly.
"You pick me out one, parson."

written by that grand old philosopher,
The old man took his book and went
his way, and at the end of a week he
again appeared before the parson with

"Well," queried the parson, smilingly,
