fashion at tho park gates has liad a similar ollcct in tho imitation parlor games and demand has diod out almost completely As a result tho designers have left tho national sport severely alone in their winter offerings giving their attention to sports that command a higher place in tho popular esteem Lawn tennis has long proved a favora ble field for tho experiments of the In ventors and several parlor games in Im itation of this grand outdoor sport have been put on tho market Until this year however their efforts have not inet with much success They adhered too closely to tho original and for ob vious reasons very few housewives could be found who would smile on a parlor pnstime in which lying balls no matter how light were a constant and serious menace to thoir choicest bits of brica brac This season the difficulty was finally overeomo by tho invention uf a game of table tennis Tho inspiration for this game came through tho revival a few months ago of an anciont English gamo known as tid dlcdy winks which has created almost as great a furor as the pigsinclovor or 131415 puzzles did in thoir day Tid dlody winks ia simplicity itself In fact it is so very easy that of the greatest houses in tho trade to whom the idea was first submitted a year ago bv a clever employee declined to handle it because they did not believe the pub lic would take to such an absurdly sim ple thing The paraphernalia consists of two down or more different colored bone chips of tho size and shapo of an ordinary copper cent a half dozen larger chips like those used in pokor a cup of nono wood or glass as large as a medium sized whiskey tumbler and a heavy woolen mat or bettor still a heavy cover Tho little chips aro divided among any number of to six and tho scheme is to jump them into the cup wink as it is known by laying them flat on the mat or table cover and then pressing thoir Koa with the larger disk In tho now tennis game that has grown out of tiddlcdy and which is known by tho rather trying namo of tiddledy wink a greon felt mat about eighteen inches long and nine Inches wido is ruled oil exactly like a lawn tonnis court In tho center is stretched tho nob made of pasteboard two inches high and tho litllo tlddlcdy wink counters aro served over this not tho pokor chips doing duty as racquets Tho game is scored as in ordinary tonnis and can bo played in singles or Another summer pastime that has been arranged to do winter service in tho parlor is angling A false bottom painted to imitate a fishpond is arranged in tho box In which tho game comes arid Imrough holes in this false bottom fish are sunk into tho pond until nothing but their heads stick up abovo tho These lish aro substantially made of pasteboard and aro colored in tho most artistic manner to represent about every species generally known to the ordinary fisherman Through thoir noses they havo metal eyelets and on their submerged tails aro printed rinm bers supposed to represent their weight After tho lish have all been properly ar ranged so that no one knows whoro tho big fellows are a party is formed and the fishing begins the porch haddock being hauled out of thoir native element by moans of a short polo and line on tho ond of which is a hook that after yon become an export in angling you can hook through tho eyelets in the protruding nose After all tho fish have been landed except one for each member ot the party the anglers count up thoir catch and the ono who has our counters Childrens and Boys Heavy Suits and Overcoats at a discount of 25 per

favorable impression last year bytho author of is another interesting game and requires considerable skill Tho game of Steeplechase has been pub in a new form and one of tho finest things over soon in tho line of board games is a steeplechase sot It comes in a box of imitation Russian leather Tho board on which tho gamo is played XOLTXCr IN TITK made tho largest haul in point of weight wins tho Tho seductiveness of this sport which can bo made to combine joys ol angling with tho fascination of a jackpot for a fisherman can bo better imagined than described A variation of the game known as progressive anglinp has become quite a society fad Those progressive sets have inotal instead of pasteboard fish and tho aro constructed by moansof con tractable hoops of brass suHiciontly largo to to entirely abound an ordinary card or parlor table Within this pond tho fish after being thor oughly mixed up aro laid numbered side down and then the fishermen and fisherwomen cast their Hues Tho pro gressive feature is the same as in euchre A more robust U not more interesting sport for tho house is furnished by tho parlor bull a cross between bowling shuftloboard and bagatelle An elevated platform generally about four feet square and eight or ten inches high connected with tho floor at the front by moans an inclined plane is placed at one end of tho room The platform contains either nine or twelve wooden pockets with different numbers and tho idea is to roll a ball along the carpet into one of tho pockets the per son making the biggest score winning the game It requires quite a line touch to land tho ball in one of the upper pockets A somewhat similar game is an improved form of parlor or table In this tho platform which is considerably smaller and lined with green cloth is put on tho table in place ot the floor Three balls are used as In billiards and they aro played with a cue instead of by hand Like many another good thing the pretties i of all the parlor sports this season has boon taken by tho manufac turers from tho days of our grand mothers This is grace which befo tho war was tho great winter amusement It is calculated to bring out everything that is mosfc

his men wins the treasure that the wi tch is supposed to hoard Anabasis is another now thing in this line asifc has a flavor of gunpowder and active warfare One of tho things that will find most favor with oldfashioned people is a now series of the standard game of gotten up in the most ele gant stylo Rovers and Louisa are also out in a now dross and upon im proved lines several changes for tho
