Children's Corner. 1 BY UNCLE JOHN I The competition on the Early Worm I is now closed, and the names of the I winners will be declared to-morrow. A LEAP FOR LIFE. I Samuel Brady, the hero of the story, was a vigorous backwoodsman, and had become very obnoxious to the Indians, from his numerous attacks on their war parties. A large party oi warriors made an inroad on tlie south side of the Ohio, and had murdered several xamilies. Brady summoned a party of his chosen followers and hastened after them. Nf-ar the town of Ravenna the Indians separated into two parties, one of which went north and the other west. Brady's men also divided a part pursued the western trail, and a part, with their commander, the northern trail. The Indians expected a pursuit, and were ready to receive him. Brady told his men to separate, but the Indians, having a most inveterate dread of him, left all others, and pursued him alone. Brady directed his course to the river, where the stream is compressed by cliffs, into a narrow channel of twenty-two feet, I across the top of the chasm. As he, ap- proached, Brady, knowing that life or death was in the effort, concentrated his mighty powers and leaped the stream at a single bound. Tho Indians fired at him, onb bullet severely wounding him in the hip. He now made for a pond. which now bears his name, and swam under water ) a considerable distance, and came np ¡ under the trunk of a large oak tree. This, although only leaving a small breathing space to support life, sheltered him from the sight of the Indians. After they had gone he made good his retreat to hiS own home, where he found that his followers had all returned in safety. The chasm across which he leaped is known in all that region as Brady's Leap.—Jack P. Davies. 43, North Hill-road, Mount Plea- sant. Swansea (age 12). This story was told by a gentleman from Toronto, Canada. Next. please! 18, Neuacld-road. Gwaun-c-ae-Gurwen.— Dear "CneIe John,—I am very sorry for beng so long in writing to you.

Next time it rains you come right into my liollsp; I want every drop on my land." —Your aTTectionate niece, Winifred I Roberts (age 13i). SHORT AND SWEET.

Thomas ims Davies (13 years of age) 17-3, FfYIlOtl fating-road, Cwm, Bonymaen, near Swansea, writes-—Dear Uncle John, —I am taking great interest in the Chil- dren's Corner," and I am sending yoil some riddles and a piece- of poetry.

Whv is a postage stamp like a naughty school-boy?—Because you will have to lick their, backs before they will stick to their letters.
For the Ladies. Revival of Plush. I Another mode of our grandmothers. time is being restored to favour in the shape of pluoli. Although we not only borrowed the fancy, but greatly im- proved it, for in their hands it was one of the dowdiest oï materials, wherea-s the modern manufacturer is turning it out in all manner of soft and gorgeous colour- ings. It is an ideal material for evening wraps. An evening wrap of this delight- ful fabric, with perhaps, a large fur collar, would be to most women a joy. CHILDREN'S COATS. The cloaked effect which has won such a world of admiration irom the elder iolk, also promises to he equally as popular with the youngsters. are tight about the knees, and have magyar sleeves, and SOlliO of them boast deep rolled-up collars of cosy fur. For part-y frocks for the kiddies, materials aro very similar to those worn by their mothers. Velvet, oharmeuse, and lace arc extremely popu- lar. HIGH-NECKED DRESSES. The highnecked dress is undoubtedly the distinction of the new models this season, and will grow in favour a& the season advances. It is nut so close fitting as those wliicli used to be worn, and i, very becoming to some people. Dress de- signers are striving to introduce the frock tijat has a never ending swathing which i reaches right up to the ears, but most women cling to the more decolletio fashion. SASHES. ( If you want to touch up youjf frock, the most practical way of doing sd is to wear with it one of the very newest artistic j belts or sashes. With the aid of one of these, the simplest frock may be given an appearance of originality. Sashes are now being worn in various different ways. They can be tied with huge bows at tho side, back and front. A very picturesque new sash is one tying at the back with floating pockets attached to each side. To renovate last year's evening skirt, use a sash with draped-on puffed side pieces. Another simple way of giving the fashion- able hip draperies by means of a ribbon sash is to use any wide width ribbon and then to loop it up to form three or four puff on each hip. The untrinuned waist is certainly dying, for on all the newest frocks, even on jumpers, one sees trimmed /waists.
