Harry listened attentively to this, sit- ting inl the square pew beside Deacon Thomas and his wife.

Very early it his life his father, alays rather a roving spirit, had joined a cotlmny of California gold-diggers and gone to that land, expecting soon to return with abundant treasuire.

The village people scattered to their homes, but the stranger remained long.

Pongee is ill high favor as ai apron material, and miay be embellished with embroidery, lace or ribbons, or a combi- nation of all three. A nice sewing or knitting apron is made of a yard of this cloth. An inch and a half eii is made on the four sides, that on thel bottom be- tu turned on the opposite side from that at the top.
The bottom is then turned up a quarter of a yard and stitched in such a way as to form three divisions or pockets. These are to hold thread, scissors, pin- cushion and light articles of work, and for knitting when several colors are used, are nch more convenient thanthe coni- ventional basket. A simple design out- lined in the center of each pocket, will add to tle beauty of the apron, and if de- sired the scissors and small pi ball nay be suspended from the belt by ribbons.
Made of butchers' linen these aprons are serviceable for seamstresses, while sini- lar ones made of ticking or crash, and just deep enough so tie hand can easily reach the bottom are superior to a basket or bag for holding clothespins, and have the advantage of leaving both hands free to manage the clothes and line. For this purpose the belt should be double, and fastened by a large stout button.
A silk tissue called luton. Although so delicate, it washes excellently, and when mnbroid- cred with washing silks and Japanese gold thread the effect is exquisite. One odd apron was of fine piece lace, the right side hanging plain and straight. Another still more unique had three broad ribbons spreading fan-like from the waist band. Between these ribbons were faiis of plaited lace, the bib having Out one rib- oin vith a fan of lace each side.
Hand- some lace finished the edge. Whole aprons are sometimes made of rick-rack, crochet, tatting, or the various fancy lace braids, but the work is usually preferred arranged as bands, alternating with embroidery, Mexican lace or ribbon. Just at present the apron occupies a prominent position in society entertain- ments, not only affording much aniuse- ment but helping to raise money for char- itable purposes. Apron fairs or festivals, as before men- tioned, are well known everywhere, as also apron parties, where each gentleman who buys a ticket of admission is givei a gorgetous necktie of calico or gingham, which hei must at once put on.
They originated in the west and are called rainbow parties. All the ladies present wear aprons of such texture and color as their taste may suggest, usuall not very elaborate. Each lady has a number pined to the corner of her ipron, and duplicate numbers are on sale under the charge of two ladies.
Pos- sessed of these numbers the gentlemen set to work to discover those which cor- respond, and wlen the compan vis dis- posed in couples the conditions are pro- claimed. These are that the uhenned aprons are to behemined by te respect- ive young men, and a prize given to the one whol oes the work most neatly and quickly.
Th1 girl, supplv their escorts with suit- able needles and thread, and at the call of ITime" the sport begins. Gentlemen are obliged to thread their own needles. The scene that fol- lows is ludicrous in the extreme, as i- accustomed masculine fingers struggle with the shining bit of steel. And one gets an idea of the natural depravity of inanimate nature as the most unticable of knots formin the thread, and the needles persistently prick the hands that so reso- lutely grasp them.
After a specilied interval " Time" is again called iand the judges after due ex- amination award the prizes. A book, ink- standclock, footrest, etc. The aprons are now rafled off, and when competition runs high, as when a jealous gentleman at- tempts to outbid a rival for the posses- sion of his best girl's apron, the prices brought by these typical fig leaves are surprisingly large.
Singing, a light col- latiol, and an hour or two of dancing usually end these rainbow parties. These affairs are only suitable for select circles where all the people are acquainted and should never be ventured on in a promis- cuous assembly.
Having seen several requests in our paper this summer for knitted shoulder capes7 I will, to the best of my ability, give directions for the same. I have knit several in the last year, and they have been greatly admired. The materials to use are German wool and medium sized bone needles. You will require one skein. Cast onl fifty-file stitches of the dark.. Knit across twice, then seam, knit,. Seam is the same as purl. This makes eight times across.
Now take the light color and knit across. Knit in the light, and knit across once as before, seam, knit, seam, knit, seam. Knit twice with the dark again, and proceed as before until you have been across eight times. This is to avoid break- ing off the yarn every time you chane. It also strengthens the edge on which to crochet aborder when one. Knit in this way until you have twenty- shxdark stripes and twenty-five light ones.
This will make a strip of knitting nearly a yard and a half long when straightened out, and will be the size of the cape around the sioulIders. You will observe that there are two knittings everytime the yarn is joined. When you have your strip long enough and the last stripe knit of the dark the same as the first, you will proceed in this way: Bind offvery loose three stitches, drop the fourth off the needle. N , tile stitches, one at a tile, down to the othel end.
Every stitch dropped Nwill lengtlon the capeai quarter of an inch, so by the time there are thir- teen stitches raveled,.. Take the side on which the yarn is joindI and draw it lp to its required size for the neck, either by overeastillg with t worsted needle and a piece of the yarni, or vith at crochet needle, as you like.
This is all the knitting there is to it, unliess soie of the sisters can knit a hor- der which I cannot do. If you do not understand how to crochet, yot will be obliged toturn it over toyourdaugliter or some otier good friend as I have one. The proper wayN- is to crochet a place around the neck in which to put a ribbon as wide as iou desire.
Mine are about three-quarters of a inch vide, and will take in a ribbon ai incih wide. The next thing is to crochet at border aill around the cape of shells of tie. T ,d url two together. Over twice, purl two Iviceknit Sexen.

I had take five, cross over, take three, join, take a large box of zephyrs left from former fancy work, and wishing to use it in some shape, a very handsome cushion is the result. I bought one yard of blue and white bed ticking, the wide striped, that is, where the whitastripe is just as wide as common dress braid.
I had the cush- ion one-half yard square. On one side I basted braid oin the white stripes, black and scarlet alternately, fastening them down with the old-fashioned ierring-bone stitch, using black and green on the scar- let, and purple and scarlet on the black.
On the blue stripes of the ticking, I worked a vine in feather stitch, using colors that would contrast well with the color next to it. I used considerable gold color as that looked well with most of the other colors. A little ways off it looks like very rich velvet. For the oth- er side, took navy blue waterproof, cut strips wide enough to cover one white and two blue stripes of the ticking, pinked both edges, and stitched down with sew- ing machine close to the pinking, and on these line stripes I put a vine and leaves.
The leaves were cut from white felt. I fastened them down with gold-colored silk In button-hole stitch, veining the leaves, and working the vine and tendrils with the same silk. Between each of these rows were two white and one blue of the ticking. I used cardinal red in herring-bone stitch on the white and gold on the blue.

I would like to tell those interested in such things how to make a shell monu- ment. Take a block of wood five inches long, three inches wide and two inches high. Cut it doxn and fit itnicely into the first block. Graduate the col- umn to suit one's fancy. It is now ready for the shells and pebbles.
Use white lead, putting oil a layer of it, and then the shells. Simall shells adll sall pebbles are the prettiest. Crosses, anchors, shell cabinets, horseshoes, and a variety of beautiful ornaments can be made. I have also a large mussle shell covered with. It is pretty and odd.
Some use putty for shell work. It is not nearly as much trouble as. Cast tvetv-four stitches on each nee- dle, three needles. The next round is plain always. Continue until the wrist- ers are as long as you like them. For a large wrist ttirty-tio stithes wi l le necessary.
