Fashion and Things Feminine. By MISS IDA MELLER. A Household or Cooking Apron. On the care that a woman gives to her clothes depends,- to a great extent, the repu- tation she earns of being well-dressed or other- wise. It is not so much a question of how much money she spends on dress as how she wears and treats her clothes that counts in the long run, and one of the secrets of pre- serving the life of a gown is to brush it care- fully before putting it away after it has been worn, and to hang it up by loops specially pro- vided for the purpose—not by the armholes, aAter the careless fashion so often adopted. With regard to walking dresses, these should be kept exclusively for outdoor wear, otherwise the skirts, if worn for any length of time in the house, soon lose their freshness and become creased. Then, again, with regard to house-dresses, these should be protected by an apron when dusty work is engaged in that is likely to soil them, and, of course, when the house-mistress is occupied in pastrv-making, or any other form of cookery, she should wrap herself in an overall with sleeves, to avert the likelihood 'of flour, etc., marking her dress. The household or cooking overall sketched is an excellent model to copy. It is of blue linen, and is but- toned on the left shoulder and across the front, the yoke and cuffs being of embroidered linen or coarse washing lace. Such an overall as this is a great protection to the dress beneath, and is well worth the slight trouble of making, for it will pay for itself over and over again by saving wear and tear or laundry expenses of the house-dress. A Simple Cut-Away Coat. The position of the waist is undecided for the time, and travels upwards and downwards according to fancy. There are still many evi- dences of the Empire waist, while, on the other hand, the low waist is gradually coming in again, and appears on certain of the new French gowns. For the present, however, special favour is showered upon the corselet skirt and fairly short waist. A great many of the new costumes for the summer are of corselet princess design, and these are made in cloth, serge, Shantung silk, and linen. The corselet skirts, joined to pleated bodice of the same material, are not infrequently accompa- nied by coats that are cut away at the waist to show the corselet beneath. A coat of this type is seen in our sketch, the fronts buttoning on the diagonal and three little buttons adorn- ing each corner of the basque or skirt of the coat. The long sleeves are also finished with buttons, and the collar is faced with Ottoman silk or satin. Carried out in dark blue serge with black satin buttons and collar-facing, the coat looks extremely well equally so in light brQwn summer frieze with facing and buttons in Ottoman silk to match or in black satin. Ribbed, or Ottoman silk, is now considered smarter than glace. A Muff-Shape Tea Cosey. To upset a teapot when putting on a cosey is a little accident of no infrequent occurence, and tMs is usually due to the spout of the tea- pot being caught by the cosey. To avoid this it is a good plan to make a tea cosey with open ends so that it will fit-any teapot, and need not, necessarily, touch the spout. The new muff-shape tea cosey sketched has advan- tages over the old-fashioned patterij. inasmuch as the ends are open, ami are not likely, therefore, to catch the spout of the teapot and cause an accident. The cosey can be made of any material such as brocade, cloth, light serge, Japanese crepe, ctc., or of washing stuff, the cover being lightly stitched to the stuffing (encased in flannelette or sateen) so that it can be quickly removed to be washed as often as necessary. Either embroidered linen or crash, for instance, can be used for the cover, which l looks pretty in pale blue with ivory embroi- deries, or vice versa. Each end of the coaey is frilled and left open. and a handle is provi- ded at the top with cord. Cuttings of furniture brocade or tapestry "nay advantageously be used as covers for tea coseys, while smaller pieces make excellent iron-holders. To make a muff tea cosey, take a straight piece of material as long and wide as neces- sary, Hne it, and stuff it with wadding, frill it, at the ends with silk or ribbon, sewing the frills between lining and outer cover, then fold the material in half, thus forming a cosey, and add r. few stitches at the top corners, catching together, invisibly, the two sides of the cosey to keep it in shape. Complete it by adding a handle of silk cord, and for the sake of further decoration finish off with an all-round border of cord. A Timely Hint. In view of the summer holidays, dress- baskets and trunks should be looked to, in order that they are in sound condition when the moment arrives for their services to be requisitioned. Dress-baskets are improved by a waterproof lining, which saves the clothes packed from injury from bad weather. Good locks or straps should also be provided.
BOY SCOUTS. The 1st Welsh Dragon Troop, to the num- ber of about 50, under the command of Scout- master C. F. Whitcombe. left their headquar- ters on Saturday for Llanedarne, where they are encamped in a field near Glen-y-nant Farm, kindly lent by Mr T. Shears. On Sunday they attended Llanedarne Church, when an eloquent sermon was delivered by the Rev. Stephen Jackson. During their stay in camp th<^ will be put through the usual course of sc^t training. The camp has been attended by a large number of visitors-
Work in the Garden. The recent heavy rain-fall has given a. much- needed help forward to everything in the gar- den, and the gardener who socks to be success- ful must now spare no time or effort. i Vegetables and Fruit. Early spring-sown Cabbages, Cauliflowers, Broccoli, and other winter greens if raised under glass, must be well hardened off before being planted out, and the ground should have been deeply dug and moderately manured be- fore hand. It should he noted that Cauliflowers require, or succeed best in, a very rich soil. It is best to put out such plants when the soil is moderately moist, but, if dry, draw a shallow drill where each row is to come, watering these both before and after planting. Some people seem to think that such things way be planted anyhow it is surprising wat a difference in result care in every detaila-iiikes. Turnips sown early may have failed, owing to the cold winds and drought, and in that case more seed should be sown now. If the soil can be kept moist and the destructive fly or beetle warded off. these will do well. Should the fly attack them, the plants should be dusted two or three times with dry superphosphate ot lime, in fine powder, or wood ashes will do nearly as well, but plenty of water is a great preventive of this pest. Soil between the rows of growing Potatoes should be kept in a loose, friable condition, by the use of the hoe, or fork, as the case may be, and, in due course, earth up the plants for the last time. If a light sprinkling of nitrate of soda or sulphate of ammonia is given between the rows, just before the final moulding, it will im- prove the growth of the plants, and consider- ably augment the crops, especially where the soil is at all light or poor. or the growth is not as healthy-looking as it might be. On light, thin soils, a moderate dressing of common salt will give almost as good results as nitrate' of soda, or a mixture of salt and sulphate of ammonia may be employed. Plant Cucumbers in cold frames. If procur- in able, place a foot of hot manure in the bottom, beat this down firmly, and then place a mound of course loamy soil under the centre of each light, and plant two Cucumbers in each mound. Keep close for a day or so. shade from sun. and syringe morning and evening. Vegetable Marrow plants ought to be put out now. It may still not be too late to sow seeds out of doors in a sunny, well-sheltered bed. Allowing the runners to spread themselves over the ground is rather wasteful when space is im- portant, as Yhe plants may be trained on low walls or on the roos of a low shed. Tomatoes should now be planted out near the foot of a sunny wall or fence. During warm, sunny summers they will do well if trained to stakes on a similarly favourable site. Trained over broad, flat stones, sheets of corrugated iron. &c., laid upon the ground, they give bet- ter results than over loose ground, especially during damp seasons. All Gooseberry growers are advised to exam- ine ther bushes carefully for traces of American Gooseberry mildew, and those in infected areas should spray their bushes with a solution of liver of sulphur (lib to 32 gallons of water). Success with Scarlet Runners. The time for sowing Scarlet Runner Beans depends on the locality. The young Beans are most delicate, and easily injured by late frosts. Hunner Beans can be transplanted readily, and in case of failure, either from inferior seeds, frosts, slugs, or otier causes, it is a good plan to sow some in boxes of moist soil and place under glass. The Beans quickly germinate, and when hardened off they may be planted to fill up any gaps which may have occurred in the lines. To have crisp, tender Beans, dig a trench about a foot deep and the same in width. Place a layer of ma.nure about four inches deep along the bottom, fork this over, and then place a thin layer of leaf-mould and sand. Sow on top of this, and sprinkle a, little more of the sandy mixture over the seeds, filling up another two inches with the soil thrown out. of the trench, broken up fine with a spade. The sandy soil next the seed will prevent it from decaying, if much rain should come, or if the soil is hoavy. The roots will quickly find their way down to the manure at the bottom. Being in a shallow trench, the young plants will be sheltered at first, and when dry, hot weather sets in, either level the soil in the trench or fill it up with manure this will present the roots being in- jured by drought. The plants should be staked when about 6in high. Notorious Garden Pests. Garden work would be a very much pleasan- ter occupation if it were not for the numerous pests that work such havoc. Few do more daUAge than slugs and snails. Lime, soot, ashes and various chemical preparations are used to fight them and prevent their depredations, but hand-picking is the most effective way of rid- ding a garden of them. If stones are lifted, box edging examined, and odd corners explored, an enormous number may be found and de- stroyed. If heaps of bran or cabbage leaves are used as traps, the task will be facilitated, for to them the creatures will hasten at dusk. Lime, according to the late Miss Ormerod, does not kill slugs, but it makes them change their skins, probably as the result of burning. It may, therefore, be useful in protecting plai ts, as they would hesitate to crawl over it. Soot, when fresh, adheres to their slimy bodies, and, if thev were completely covered with it, would doubtless suffocate them. Ashes, when dry, also act as a deterrent owing.io their sharp-edged particles, but when wet they cake together and present a smoother surface. Chemical prepara- tions sold for killing slugs should be used with caution. Pansies from Seed. Pansy seed should be sown at once if it is desired to propagate the plants in that way. They are plants that do not need coddling. Some road scrapirgs or coarse sand should be worked into a well-dug patch. Sow the seed thinly, pricking off in abed where it will not be needful to disturb them until next spring. It is a great advantage to make a bed so that with the aid of bricks or boards round it, a frame- light may be put over the plants in winter, but even then ventilation must be afforded. A shilling spent on seed will provide a beautiful bed of pretty flowers next spring. A small brown fly attacks the shoots of Pan- sies at this time of year. A solution of soap and water applied to the infested shoots with the finger and thumb is the best remedy. The Window-Boxes. The evaporation from these in dry weather is extraordinarily rapid, and the plants will look miserable if neglected, so water might be given twice a. day. Rich soil, too, and a covering of moss or Cocoanut, fibre on the surface, will be 0 desirable to keep them cool but of course, in a hot, sunny exposure it is necessary to choose the right plants, i.e., those which do not need shade. For a south window-box in summer. Iw-leaved and other Geraniums, blue Lobelia, Petunias. Heliotrope, and white Marguerites will stand better than most other things. For a position which is rather shaded, tuberous Begonias are lovely, with hanging Fuchsias (old plants cut down in spring, and then repotted), and Campanulas gatganica and ftagilis also drooping over the box. Climbing plants, such as Lophospermum scandens (with pink, trumpet-shaped, flowers), Maurandva Barclayana (purple), or Tropaeo- lums Lobbi or canariense, can. a writer m Garden Life suggests, be planted at either end of the box, and trained by means of string stretched on large nails to forrp an arch over the window, with very good effect and a wire basket can be hung from the central nail above the window (well-lined with moss), to contain a specimen plant of a drooping nature. A PaJm which has wintered in the house may be sunk in the centre (in its pot), but must not be allowed to want for water, nor exposed to strong sunshine. White or pink Hydrangeas look well in window-boxes, but they are amongst the mt thirsty of plants, and should have an abun- I dance of tepid water morning and evening, with a dose of liquid manure (or soot-water,in a defer, thin state) twice a week. All the peat- loving plants which include Azaleas, Rhodo- dendrons, Camellias, and others shrubs, Heaths, &c., need much water in summer.
CHURCH PAGEANT. The Welsh Scene. The allotment of parts in the English Church Pageant, to be held at Fulham Palace on June 10-16. has now been practically com- pleted. The first part consists of 10 scenes, the second being the Alleluya Victory 430. devised by the Rev. E. E. Dowling, and under- taken by the members of the Welsh Church in London. The hon. secretary and head of the scene will be the Rev. Canon Morris, the mistress of the robes Mrs Rupert Morris, and. the master of properties Mr D. Morgan. The part of St. Germanus has been allotted to the Rev. D. J. Thomas, that of St. Lupus to the Rev. J. Crowle Ellis, and that of the Leader of the Briton3 to the Rev. H. Watkins. The second part of the pageant contains nine scenes, and brings the history of the Chutch up to the acquittal of the seven bishops in 1688.

FOLLOWERS NOT ALLOWED. At a meeting of the Carnarvon Board of Guardians on Saturday the committee ap- pointed to investigate certain allegations made against the Workhouse nurse submitted its report. The committee, in their report, stated that they were convinced the nurse's conduct in regard to the visits of her fiance had been rude and wanting in proper respect towards the chairman and members of the Visiting Committee, and were at least sufficiently pro- vocative to incur their serious displeasure. The committee did not think that her conduct called for severe measures recommended by the Visiting Committee. However, having regard to the apology made on her behalf by her solicitor, the Inquiry Committee were of opinion that"the case would be met by request- ing Nurse Thomas to send in her resignation. The committee further recommended that Guardians of other Unions should not allow nurses to have followers visiting them. The inquiry lasted three hours.
For disorderly conduct at Pontypool, Ger- trude Mayo was fined 10s, and Wm. Morgan, an AbertUlery collier, 40s, at the local court.
Lord Rosebery's Factor. SINGULAR SLANDER SUIT. In the First Division of the Court of Session Edinburgh, on Tuesday, counsel was heard on an appeal in the case of Andrew L. Drysdale, at one time factor at Dalmeny, against Lord Rosebery for £10,000 as damages for alleged slander. The plaintiff complained of the manner in which Lord Rosebery had terminated his em- ployment at Dalmenv in January last. Lord Salvesen, in the Outer House, held that the action was irrelevant and dismissed it with expenses to Lord Rosebery. Against that decision the plaintiff appealed to the First Division. Lord Dunedin, Lord Kinnear, and Lord Guthrie were on the bench. Mr Sandeman, who appeared for the ap- pellant, said Mr Drysdale had acted for 20 years as factor for Lord Rosebery. During that time he handled 120000 a year, and his accounts were duly audited and no complaint was found with his management. Suddenly, on 2nd January last, Mr George Dalzell, of Lord Rosebery's firm of law agents in Edin- burgh, came down to Dalmeny and handed Mr Drysdale a letter from Lord Rosebery summarily ordering him to hand over his papers. Mr Drysdale asked what was the meaning of it, and Mr Dalziel said Lord Rose- bery wished an investigation. He explained to Mr Dalziel that the key of the cash-box, which was in the safe, was in the possession of a clerk who was not present, and Mr Dalziel thereupon had the safe scaled up, sp that nothing could be touched. The seals were broken open a day or two afterwards in the presence of other persons, and every person present understood there had been some em- bezzlement or fraud, or breach of trust on the part of Mr Drysdale. Accordingly, the action was raised. Lord Kinnear When you say they under stood, do you mean they supposed ? Had they any reason for understanding ? Mr Sandeman said that when the persons present saw the safe sealed up they thought something serious had happened. The infer- ence they drew was that Lord Rosebery charged Mr Drysdale with at least want of trustworthiness. In his judgment Lord Salve- sen had said they could have slander by action as well as by words, but inasmuch as Lord Rosebery was entitled to do all that he did therefore what he did would not bear the innuendo. The Right of Entry. Lord Dunedin asked if counsel maintained that if one put a factor or a gardener or a butcher into a house the master had no right to enter that house. Mr Sandeman replied that he thought it de- pended on the way the righ vas exercised. It might be so exercised as to oe entirely wrong. He did not concede that Lord Rosebery had an absolute right to enter Mr Drysdale's office. Lord Salvesen had seemed to reason that all these acts tyere privileged, and because they were privileged they would not bear the innuendo. Counsel argued that if these acts bore the innuendo that he put upon them, then they were in exactly the same position as spoken words. # Lord Dunedin said surely there must be some right of investigation at the instance of a "ISr^Sandeman replied, yes, if he did not do it in a particularly offensive way. Lord Guthrie pointed out that this was not a case of dismissal. What was done was just what a bank inspector did. The whole keys of the bank were handed over to him during the inspection. Mr Sandeman said that when it was the usual practice nobody thought anything about it. He contended that it was quite reasonable that a jury might hold that, being maliciously done, it was intended to convey the meaning that Mr Drysdale was not trustworthy. He accordingly asked that Lord Salvesen's judg- ment should be recalled. In reply to a qusetion by Lord Guthrie, Mr Sandeman said it was a monstrous thing to seal up the safe when they had the key. It w the doing of it in that lash way that took the action out of the ordinary course. Counsel for Lord Rosebery was not called upon. Judgment. Lord Dunedin, in giving judgment, said that in this case the matter had been admirably put by Lord Salvesen, and he really had nothing to add to what he had said. He thought it was quite clear there might be an actionable wrong of the nature of a slander committed by ac- tions. The question always must be before they could allow an issue for trial by jury whether the lnnueno which was put on these actions could reasonably be drawn from them. In this case I think clearly it could not. He was really appalled at the length to which the opposite doc trice was put. To say that a person was not entitled to make an investiga- tion into his agent's accounts without it being said he thereby necessarily charged him with dishonesty, and subjected himself to what 12 jurymen might think about it, if that were to be so he really thought the protection of confidential relations would be at an end. It seemed just as reasonable as to say that if you saw a man standing somewhere near your door and blowing a whistle he should be brought up in an action of slander on the ground that he meant to' call a policeman to charge you with dishonesty. The actions in the case seemed to him "perfectly reasonable and without any harshiless On the legal ground he could not do more than say that he thought Lord Salvo- sen's decision was couched in very appropriate language. Lord Kinnear and Lord Guthrie formally concurred. Expenses were awarded to Lord Rosebery.
SWANSEA ASSAULT CASES. ( ——— At Swansea Police Court on Tuesday,Stephen Payne, an ex-police officer and caretaker of the Morriston Parish Hall, summoned for assaulting Minnie Hilda Jones, aged 13, was alleged, on the day of the opening of the hall, to have gone out to a crowd of children who had assembled, and struck the complainant on the face with a whip. Defendant said he was asked by some ladies to get some children out of the hall. There were at least 150 children there, and as they would not go away he took a whip from a cabman, and then they ran away. He denied the offence, and said if he was' capable of doing what was alleged the Bench ought not to fine him, but give him six months. He read a kttcr from Mr Harris, solicitor for the complainant, in which pay- ment of compensation was demanded, and added that it was money they wanted, and that was why he was summoned. He had the full confidence of the children, and did not think anyone could truthfully say he had ever been hard on a child in his life. William Edward Keen, the cabman from whom the whip was borrowed, said he saw defendant slash the whip, but not hit anyone. The magistrates, after retirement, decided although there had been no matlice in the attack, the assault was proved, and a fine of 308 inclusive would be imposed. Defendant: And the al- ternative, sir ? The Clerk Fourteen days.— Defendant: I'll take the alternative I'll not be blackmailed. Subsequently, however, defendant paid the fine. Pugilist and Policeman. William Morgan, a pugilist, was charged with being drunk and disorderly on the sands, and damaging the tunic of P.C. Griffiths. The officer said he had received complaints of de- fendant having assaulted a quack doctor, whom he eventually chased off the sands. When arrested defendant wanted to fight, and tore his tunic. Barbour Quarzel said de- fendant threw some sand at him and then began using abusive language to him, threat- ened him, and took up a chair and began to beat him with it, so that he had to run away. Defendant denied. the offence, saying the sand was thrown by a boy. Mrs Morgan said because her husband was more wicked than the others, laughing at the sand being thrown. Quarzel accused hipi, and took up an iron chair and began slashing out, striking several others besides her husband. The crowd shouted Drop that chair," and Quarzel ran away. Deputy Chief Constable Gill was about to give defendant's record, when he was interrupted with the remark that the Bench intended dealing with the case on its merits, and they fined defendant £1 for the drunkenness, and JE1 10s for the damage, and avowed defendant a fortnight in which to pay.
Acute Indigestion Cured. It is not the quantity of food we eat, but what we digest and assimilate that nourishes the body. When the Stomach and Organs of Digestion and Nutrition are diseased, and the food eaten is only imperfectly digested, there is loss of nutrition, and the body loses strength as a natural conse- quence. Not only does the system suffer from lack of nourishment, but the derange-* ment of the organs must inevitably cause further complications. Indigestion is a most prevalent source of Constipation, which in its turn causes a disordered liver, and finally you be- come burdened with Chronic Dyspepsia. Mr. Thomas Grogan, of 6, Clitheroe Road, Brierfield, near Burnley, writes — For the last two years I suffered great pains in mygtomach, which must have been caused from acute Indi- gestion and Dyspepsia. My tongue was always coated, and I tried many remedies, but with no effect. I am now using Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills and am mending every day. I shall con- tinue to use them as I am convinced that they are a magnificent remedy for all Atomach complaints. I recommend them to all my friends, and I am very glad of this opportunity of expressing my thanks for the good they have done me and give you full permission to use this letter as a tribute to the excellence of Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills."

Man of Millions. LENGTHY AND ELABORATE WILL. The remains'of the late Mr Charles Morrison, the multi-millionaire, who passed away on Tuesday last, were laid to rest on Friday afternoon in the tiny churchyard at Basildon village, on the banks of the Thames. Laten in the day the deceased pentleman'a will was opened and read at Basildon House in the presence of certain of the relatives and of the family solicitor, Sir Frank Crisp. It is understood to be a document of great, length, containing a large number of codiciAs upon which Mr Atorrison bestowed much labour during the closing years of his life. The greatest secrecy as to the provisions has ben maintained, m Hugh Morrison, who inherits the estates, desiring that no statement shall be published until the entire contents of the document are made known. A Press repre- sentative gathered that the will is one of the most elaborate and remarkable which has been made by a millionaire for many years. The publication of the details is awaited with keen interest. All the circumstances of the funeral were of the simplest possible character. So littie had | the late Mr 'Morrison mixed with the country I gentry that there was but a small gathering I of Berkshire notables, and the great bulk of the congregation in the little Georgian church consisted of Basildon villagers and a few people from Pangbourne and Streatley. The two chief ipourners were the dead mil- lionaire's aged brother and sister-Miss Morri- son, described in the list of those present as of,South Kensington." and Mr Walter Mor- rison, of Fonthill. both of whom. like their I brother, have remained unmarried. The second coach was occupied by Mr Morrison's next-of- I kin and the heir to his estates, Mr Hugh Mor- rison, a nephew, who was accompanied by Mrs Alfred Morrison (sister-of-law), Miss Dorothy Morrison, and Mr Archibald Morrison, another nephew. Two nieces were in the third coach. I In all there were 10 coaches, which followed an open hearse, drawn by two simply-capari- soned black horses. The coffin-of oak with plain brass fittings and a massive plate recocd- ing the fact that Mr Mori-ison was 92 years of age—was borne by tenants. The body lies in the family vault side by side with that of the founder of the family's for- i tunes, Mr James Morrison.
