S Paris P'aims. The season is sufficiently advanced to enable us to judge with some ac curacy what will be the prevailing ii fashions during the summer. We be gin to think of washing-dresses and of a light materials. Embroidery, in its b various forms, is likely to be more than ever in request, especially for muslins tl and cambrics. Some of the effects in o this way, already to be seen, are most pleasing. A dress of batiste, pink, pale t blue or ecru, with tablier embroidered, or covered with rows of embroidery, is as becomingas any ball costume could be. According to the present programme A of fashion, a lady of varied tastes has plenty of opportunity of indulging a them. She may have one dress of very b narrow proportions and another full o and bouffante; she may have one con sisting of first jupe, seconi jupe and tablier, or tunic, and another of straight severity, being nothing more than the d single skirt covered with one or two wide kilts, and headed by simple scarf drapery. ...

Why is it that so many people think It a hard matter to have soup for din ner, and why is it that those who have t.he most available material for this purpose often use it the leastP Now, if you are rich enough to have an experi enced cook, she will either know how to make a certain number of good soups or she will scorn any simple methods you may suggest to her; but, if you are not rich-have perhaps one girl, who is only a good plain cook there is every hope for you to begin most dinners with a tasty and nourish ing soup. It has been said that a plate ful of soup makes a warm place in the stomach for the dinner proper, and 'hat digestion is much aided thereby. This may be so or not; but it is only !'laimed now that it is good to have soup for dinner, and that it is easyto have it, too. For example, you need not go to your butcher's and spend fifty or sixty cents for a beef-bone or a knuckle of veal. Don't you have roast beef once a week-say a rib roast; two or three ribs?

Twenty ago the oil excitement in Oil e, in the lower field, was at its height, and Moses, having made a large fortune in patent medicines, with head quarters in Rochester, was attacked by the oil fever. The symptoms min his case took the form of a mania to develop a new petroleum field, and investigations led him to Bradford, in the valley of the 'Tunungawant Creek.
