To Set the Color in Gingham.
To set the color in ginghara, the

ing. Madras may be treated in the

set the color. A better way, however,
is to try a piece of the dress by dip-

washing it, next time dipping it into

The Well-Dressed Woman,
The well-dressed woman is not only
woll gowned, but all the small details
of her toilet are given considerstion.
Her hair, skin and nails show evi-
dences of care and painstaking, sod
her clothing has not only been well
msde, but is well kept. There are
fome women who think it almost sinful
to pay much attention to dress aud per-
sonal este and to look well dressed and
stylish is quite beneath their ambition.
But believe me, Share is no sin in .
ways trying to your best, an
that the game is well worth the candle
will show in the influence upon your
home, husband and children.
The well-dressed woman is no the
ose who dresses the most extravagant
- iy, orjemploys the most fashionable
pssmaker; nor is she the ono who
affects all ulra-styles and fads in
dress; but it is she who is always con-
sinteutly dressed with regard to time,
place, occasion, age and the size of
her husband's or father's income. The
ever-bright jewel of eonsistency is
never more beautiful than when shown
in the matter of dress in theses days
when so many showy and pretty bau-
bles are designed and offered for wom-
an's alorument. Woman's

The Phenomena of Fashion.
Fashion ss well as nature produces
its phenomena, and a few have been
apparent at the watering places re-
cently. For instance, who can explain
the fascination of ruffling only the rear
flounce of a skirt, There ix a large
class of admired, and therefore in-
fluential dresses of silk, lawn end ging-
bam, which rustle oat their little day
on Casino verandas in flounces set on
the perpendicular of the skirg. Truly,
they are canght in with the three back
seams of the skirt, and so fall in a ja-
bot effect. Of conrse they are wider
at the foot than near the waist, and
they are far prettier than those that
run in a tier of six, set horizontally on
the rear widths, They don’t veutare
further forward on the
that falls straight from The hips, and
they, too, are deeper at the foot than
the waist region. Another puzzle to
the simple sonls is the handle of the
very costly parasol that the rich wom-
au carries. It isa shaft of ivory and
finished with an astonishing Japan
ese carving, representing
caged nightingale] or = handsome
prickly dragon of gold, no bigger in
the body thad a slate pencil, who ties
himself in intricate bow knots behind
a pagoda-shapad cage in ivory. How
do the Japadese manage to do sach
things, and why will a woman buy so
valuable a bit ¢f bric-a-braec to put on
the end of a fragile net sunshade?
$till more inexplicable is the plain
swall trifles dangling from it. A
change purse, screw pencil, minute
memorandum book and face powder
bag are some of the things to be
counted as hanging by fine gold or
siiver threads from a painted or ns-
tural wood handle. At the seashore a
quota of women carry stable umbrellas
covered with striped canvas. Of course
it is of an especial weight to insure
comfort in its use, and a gay red fringe
finishes the edges. The same woman
who carries such sn ambrells also

Fashion Notes.
Buckles remain a prominent part of
dressy gowns.
The lawn shirt waists are pretty
and dressy over silk or muslin waists
of red, pink or blue.
The pretty dock costumes in white
or colors, in plain or fancy effects, are
in grester vogue than ever this year.
Plain colored poult de soie snd very
lovely tinted taffetas are likewise
among the favored sutnmn fabrics for
evening toilets,
Tinted horse chestnut blossoms are
very prettily worn on biege-colored
beach hats of Milan braid trimmed
with ficelle lace and brown satin rib-
The sailor suit for boys is still the
favorite, the full knee trousers fas.
tened at the knee with a band and
buckle. A hat to match completes the
boy's costume.
Very smart and pretty are some of
the new Freuch bonnets for youthful
wearers, made of white straw and
trimmed with white satin ribbon of
. good width, white lilac sprays, and a
Rhinestone buckle.
For a figure not too tall, a skirt of
fine, sheer cashmere, accordion plaited
its entire length, in black, gray or
cream white, is a very pretty and
one to melect to wear with
funcy wai.zs of every kind and color.
Plaid muslins are found in lovely
combinations, such as pink and cream,
le green and white, and black and
white. Two beautiful and uncommon
designs recently seen were a pale
heliotrope with two shades of pink,
and a deep yellow containing a touch
| of orange combined with cream.
A stylish dress has the skirt plainiy
made and finished at the hem with a
teu-inch-wide trimming of plaid silk.
The waist is made of the same silk and
has a yoke, collar and cuffs of heavy
gaipure. There is a belt of the ma-
terial and little jacket skir.s that are
. stylish, although somewhat vatchy in

New men,

home in disgnst becaunse¥of the ex-
tortions of the Canadian Government
On scoonnt of these extortions many
miners leave the Ynkon for the Ameri |
can mines, where there is no snch sys-
tem of rank extortion. These Canadian
. extortions are alleged by many to be
dae to the fact that ninety five per
cent. of the miners are Americans, and
| the Canadians thus see a good chance
to feather their nests at the expense
of the Americans. Every ruiner is
sompelled to pay a personal tax on sil
his supplies of food, and even on his
clothing in actual use, at an average
‘of 820. Counting this year's arrivals
i at 16,000 men, the Canadian treasury
{ will be the richer from this scuree by
$320,000. In the next piace, every
‘one of the arrivals is required before
. he can legally cut wood to cook his
first supper, before he can turn a
‘windlass, fish or hunt, or get any in- |
| formation from the officials, to pay a
free miner's license, the cost of this
being $11.15. What this amonnts to
in the aggregate it is easy to fignre
‘out. Next, experience shows that at

i on good and wildeat creeks combined,

tof each year a renewal of $15 is
{ charged on each of these cisims. Un-
| til recently this fee was 8150, and at
| lanst ROOD claims were renewed on this
{ basis, making $800,000. Add to
{this the present renewal fee of 815
csach on 25,000 cinims, making $3635, -
000 additional, and the aggregate is
| $1,175,000
“Another feature of the Canadian
Government's grasping policy is that
whereby alternate claims are reserved

ing miner has to pay an indirect Gov.

extortions for one year ia thus seen to
be $4,495,600.”
Mr. Myers says that no amount of
money could induce him to encounter
the hardships and risks of another
trip to the Yukon. Regarding the
‘chances a man has of getting rich,
| Mr. Myers said:
“It is truly claimed thst in the
Klondike or any other gold-bearing
region, not more than one man out of
s hundred is fortanate. The ninety-
nine unfortunstes expend as much
money and endure the same hardships
and extortions as the lucky man. The
miners say that in their opinion $3 is
nt for every doliar taken out by
e Incky ones. The great mass
either die or return dead broke. The
priystions of the miner along the
nkon are terrible. Exposure and
constant unremitting drudgery are
his lot. No roads are red. snd
all supplies, firewood and other neces-
saries must be packed on his back and
carried for long distances. Swamps
sud bogs on mountains must be strug-
gled through, and most of those who
do not die are broken down in health,
1 could not advise any persons to ven-
ture into the Alaska mining country,
snd none should veuture who is not
strong and hardy and has not capital
enough to pay for a year's food, and
his fare there and back, for it is a fact
that not one out of a hundred makes
enough to take him home.
“*There is but one story and true
belief among the thousands of us who
crowded the homeward steamers be-
yond their capacity this spring, and
that is that it would be criminal for us to
lend our voices to aid the cleverly de-
vised advertising schemes of the two
mercantile Alaskan monopolies. Little
in said about the ninety and nine un-
fortunates. Only the large gold sacks
of the few rich paying mines, together
with the aggregate product of the very
many producing but non-paying small
mines, 7, extolled. For example, I
might have in self-landation added my
little gold sack to the general list on the
arrival of onr ocean steamer and failed
to say that I had expended nearly
double its value in its procurement,

The Uncertainty of a Generation.
"A generation is an uncertain per-
jod of time, though the word is very
much used,’ observed an authority on
sach matters. ‘Strictly speaking, it
means that amount of time that
elapaes between the birth of the father
and that of his sop. It depends,
therefore, a great deal on the age of
the father, for ¥ he marries very
young the time between his birth sud
that of his son will be correspondingly
brief. In ordinary calculations, how-
ever, it is safe to put a generation at
thirty-three and one-third years, or
three generations in each century.
There ate instances, though, of four
and even more generations in a cen
tary. In countries where tie people
marry young there are, therefore,
more generations than there are in
othegs. For the same reason, genera
tions in Southern countries are much
