THE VANISH1ED TYPE. In recent diseussions on the modern girl one sign in favor of the newer type has passed munnoticed. The reference is to the disappeara'nce of the 'lady "crossed in love." Thcse wixo have arrived at tihe half-way house t~owards three score years and ten will remember how much she was in evi dence in tlheir youth, not only in the litera ture of the day, 'but in actual life. She was. usually of uncertain age, bordebing on 40, but dressed in juvenile fashion, often wear ing her hair down her back. A mysteriotis air of sympathy and toleration surrounded her, and the greatest care was takehn to say nothling in her presence that ,might hurt her too sensitive feelings, for. of course. she was '"not like other . eople," When she left a ro6m full of cormpany, her "sad story"' would be retailed in a 'hushed x,'hisper, and a symnpatheti'c sigh and tear would greet her re-entry.

FILET LACE. There are few hinds of francy work that prove so fascinating as the making of filet lace which 'Ias ihad, and still has, a phenomenal vague; Like all good things, it is expensive to buy, but. the making of it is an easily-acquired art. and the materials employed, v'iz., thie thread and neddle: for netting, mean but a small outlay.
