The Coming Election
Before another lasue of our {taper
thc orverai names will be iu the
liandB o( the City Clerk for nominations (or tbe Mayor and Aldermen
who will represent tlu- cty in civic
affairs for the i-onimK year. It 18
hoped that the mums submitted will
be selected with care antl prudence
and with due consideration for the
responsibilities tha t pertain to the
position of the advisory board ol a
city in progress and with the future
ahead oi it u» we fully believe Cranhrook has to|day. There is one thing
we Bhould particularly like to Hue in
the choosing oi the new Aldormen
and that is Miat the dwelling places
of those elected were better distributed, for Instance, at the pret-#nt
time the residences o> all the alder
men are situated on what is commonly known as 'The Hill" we
■think it would he wise 'I due -.unsld-
eratian was paid to the needs of the
northern auction of the city and one
member of the council at leutt elected from tbat part. Another one,
perhaps, couid be elected from the
southwest section and thc others
elected with due thought to tiie need
of a fast growing city. By so doing
tho care of thc city would be better
distributed and the different portions
of the city would be under tliu more
watchful eye of the inhabitants there
of who would have some 0ne
through whom tbey could upeak
their needs anh voire tbeir wants,
the elected aldermen would more particularly leei the responsibility imposed upon bim in his representation

The Loading Platform
The presont generation of Wostern farmer- will never know the
difficulties a it 1 vexation? experienced \y their predecessors iu ths
earlier years when no ono could get. a carload of grain shipped, in
hulk except hv loading It through nn elevator The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell their grain lo tlm elevator owners
at arbitrary prices, and oft times to submit to heavy dockage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now, however,
the distribution of cars ns fixed by tbo Grain Act and tho use of tho
loading platform, provide faciliti :s which enable the farmer io secure
satisfactory treatment in the disposal of his grain, and tho highest
market prices at time of sale. "Overy farmer therefore, should moro
and more endeavor to uso the loading platlofm Ir shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It !s the safeguard of the farmers' freedom in disposing of hte grain to the best advantage for himself. If
farmers tefrain from using ihe loading platfonn freely, it might re*
suit In its being done away with, because railway companies and
elevator owners are strongly opposed to it. It li easy to understand
why elovat')!' people desire the loading platform abolished. The railway people oi their part say it delays the loading of cars and helps to
ensure car Bhortage. This wo know t.) he nonsense, because fre-
p-inntl*' n'**>r '"•■■'■* nre loaded, whether with Grain, eoal, lumber, or

therefore, do all he can to Uso ihi loading platform and become an independent shit per, In suhsci.cnt advertisements we will state in

111 lhe Ise of Man the wedding ring
was formerly used as nn Instrument
of torture. Cyril Davenport, ln bl
book on Jewellery, remarks that there
onco existed n custom iu that Island
according to which au unmarried girl
who had bcen ofi'er.dod hy a man could
bring him to trial, and lf he were
found guilty she would be presented
with n sword, a rope and a ring.
With lhe sword sho might cut off
his head, wllh the rope sho might
lung him, or wllh tho ring sho might
marry bin-.. It is said lhat lho latter punishment was Invariably Inflicted.
Tlio wedding ring was anathema to
the early Puritans, who regarded per-
EonaJ adornment as one of the many
mares of Satan. In tho old English
marriage service It was the custom
foi tho bridegroom to put tho ring on
tho thumb of tho bride, saylug: In
tho tiiinie oi the Father; then ou tbe
the next finger, saying: and tho Son,
and then on the second finger, saylug:
end of the Holy Ohosl; Dually ou the
Ihlrd finger, with the word Amen.
Tho ring was loft there, because, as
the Snium ruberle says, a vein proceeds thenco to the heart. In the
modern marriage service the ring ls

sleep in the actress's trunk, and somebody shut down the lid with the result
that the animal was suffocated. The
actress ordered a rosewood and silver
coffin, 'SCO, from a firm of undertakers ln New York, and ln this the cat
was buried.
Tho list ct strange gifts to modern
monarchs contains somo curious
Horns. King Edward, shortly after
bis coronation, received a registered
packet from Vermont, USA, addressed to Ills Majesty the King of
England, House of Parliament, LJng-
and, containing a gigantic pilzo potato, which tlio sender begged him to
accept. Another strange present to
bis late Majesty was tho niuinuillled
hand of an Egyptian princess, which
the King kept an his writing-desk at
Sandrlngiinm, aud used as a paperweight .
Tho Kaiser, too, was greatly
amused seven years ago when a letter

If the ilea ot thousand! of flit*.
allona ago had found themselves tblt
to hold their own with Us* other animals, end not take to the trees, Ul*
human race, as lt Is to-day would not
exist. So Professor O. ID. Smith
told the anthropological section of th*
Ki It Ish Association.
The primates, as our ancestors wen
called, at Prat were a very small and
humble folk. It seems, who led a quite
unobtruilv* and safe life ln the
branches ot trees, taking small part
in tho fierce competition for size and
supremaoy that was belnk waged upon the earth beneath tbem. But
til the time they were cultivating that
equable development of all their
senses and limbs, and that special development of the more Intellectually
useful faculties of the mind which, la
tbe long run, wer-! to make them tlio
pi --ronltors cf liie dominant maa-.m.il

The primates, said the Fr.ofossor,
found in the branches of trees the
asj-lum and protection necessary for
the cultivation of brain and limbs
during the period of their obscurity as
an insignificant tribe, but when Ihey
became powerful enough to hold their
own end wax great, both in size and
power, thoy had maintained sufficient
ol their primitive characters, and tho
plasticity that goes with them, to ho
able giadually to give up Hie arboreal
.node of living and to re-establish
themselves once more as dwellers on
tne solid earth, competent to hold
their own against all comers,
Ot course there were backsliders.
I should bo Inclined to look upon thc
orang, the chimpanzee, and the gorilla not as ancestral forms qf man:
out as Ihe more unenterprising members of man's family, who were not
able lo maintain Ihe high level of development of tho feeble-bodied human, but saved themselves from extinction by lhe acquisition of great
-'Heneth and a certain degree of specialisation of structure. The feebler
man was able lo overcome his enemies nnd maintain himself In the

Story of a Boston Bull, Prize Winner,
Stolen and Sold In Bondage
This Is the romance of a dog. It
might bo called "The Tenth Clew."
Five months ago tho pet Boston
bull terrier of the children of lho family of S. Oppehhelmer of s. Oppen-
helnier & Co., 2700 Wabash Avenue,
was stolen. The dog, a winner or
five prizes, was valued at ?u00, and
was the pride of the Oppenheliner
Mr. Oppenheliner, seeking lo assuage this grief of Ills children over
ihe loss of their pet, offered rewards
and employed detectives to find tho
animal. Nine clews were run down,
and nine times the owners faced disappointment.
Now comes tlio next chapter. Threo
weeks ago Charles I,oo Caswell Jr.,
son of Mr and Mrs. Charles Lee
Caswell of 041 Aldine square, returned with his bride from their European wedding trip;
Mrs, Caswell is fond of dogs and
Mr. Caswell as a gift to his bride
sought one or pedigree. A dog fancier whom he consulted sent him to
.-i friend, who was believed to possess
the breed of dog desired by Mr. Caswell. Thn friend did possess the
dog. Ho Is said to havo declared
hn had raised It from a puppy and
owned tho brother. Mr. Caswell
paid $100 and sent the dog home.
Last Thursday Mr. Caswell's mother gave nu afternoon bridge party for
her bride daughter-in-law. In lho
•nldst of the receiving of the guests
'.here came :i request from a detective
to seo the hostess. Mrs. Caswell
went to the door.     Said tho caller:
A stolen do- has been traced to
your residence.
But I never owned a dog, replied
Mrs.  Caswell.
Nevertheless a valuable dog stolen
Ive nionlhs ago has been seen with
a woman and n man In a car which
bears your number.
The new pet camp to Mrs. Cas-
well'B mind and tho detective was sent
,n search of Mrs. Caswell, junior. Mr.
Oppenheliner went along to present
credentials rs owner of the aristocratic
We certainly do not want stolen pro-
peily, agreed Mr. and Mrs. Caswell.
Prlng your proof of ownership and
lhe dog Is yours.
To satisf- al! concerned the Oppen-
hclmor children wero taken to the
new Caswell residence at Central avenue and Seventeenth street ou Sat-,
•inlay afternoon. At sight ot Ills
former Playmates Iho dog wont Into
n frenzy of delight. No further proof
was necessary.
Mr, and Mrs. Caswell waived rewards and ignored Mr. Oppeiiheliner's
remarks that If ho bad been worth
$5110 before, It. was worth $5,000 to
hnve blm back. They released the
dog for the $IO(i Ihey had paid and on
Sunday Ihe Boston bull went back to
'lie bosom of Hi loved ones.
It mny be pertinent lo ndd lhat Mr.
a.'d Mrs. Caswell have anoiher dog.

Glut Fleiwra
Id th* Unlverelty Museum ot Harvard tl a collection of plants modelled ln glaii. It ll a wonderful collection both ln size snd In the beauty
tnd accuracy ct the work. It Includes flowering plants, from the simplest to the molt elaborate and complex, being done ln the natural color of tb* particular flower modelled,
with buds, leaves and stems.
This li known as the Ware collection. The plants were modelled by
Leopold Blasehka, founder of the art
ot modelling specimens ln glass. He
was born May 27th, 1822, In Alcha, a
town ln Northern Bohemia. His
father was a mechanician ln electrical apparatus and an artificer ln glass.
Leopold began work as a goldsmith,
devoting hlmsell to cutting and setting precious stones, but later changed to metal and glass work.
In 1843 he made a voyage to the
United States In a sailing vessel, making drawings of marine invertebrates
which he collected and from which he
constructed ln 1S53 the flrst glass
models foi the Natural History Museum of Dresdon Theso attracted
wide notice, and wero the beginnings
of a business that was limited only
becauso he employed no assistant but
his son.
Itudolph, Ihe son, born In 1857, was
educated to be a naturalist, and readily entered into his work will his
father Tliey studied nud made ir.nl
els of marine form ln glass, which
have been Bought by collectors and
are treasured In museums.
In 1854 Leopold made models of
plants in flower. Iu 1802 ho hnd
completed a collection of about sixty
r-poolmens of orchids modelled in
In 1888 Iho Blaschkaa were induced
to resume the consructton of plants
tn flower They also constructed
models for zoology. Since 1890 all
Ihelr timo lias been given to llowers.
They used only fresh -material so had
to obtain It closo nt hand from llie
neighboring greenhouses and gardens,
drawing from (lie Itoyal gardens of
Elaxony and Dresden. America was
drawn upon, plants being sent to be
cultivated in the garden of lhe lllas-
clika studio.
In 1802 Rudolph Blasehka went lo
America lo study the flora, lie uiade
a most thorough study of plants us to
color, also mado microscopic drawings of details and or species, and
took back specimens preserved lu alcohol ami dried for study. Ho made
collections from all parts of the conn-
try, even lo the Pacific Coast. During
a second journey iu 1SH5 lie was called home hy the death of his father.
Thc sou la still living but so far has
not disclosed ihe secret or of making
tlass models from plants, and If ho
docs not before his dealli Hu; art will
pass away.

Women Pearl Divers
The pearl-divers «f .Japan are women. Along the coast of tiie Hay of
Ago and the Hay of KoIuihIio the thirteen and fourteen year old girls, after
they have finished their primary
school work, go to sea and learn to
dive. They are in the water and
learn to awliu almost, from babyhood.
They spond most of tbeir time in the
water, except In tbe coldest season
—from the end of December to the
beginning of February. Even during thc most inclement of seasons
thoy sometimes dive fur pearls. They
wear a special dress, with tbo buir
twisted up into a bard knot. Tlic
eyes are protected by glasses to pro-
vent the entrance of water.
A boat in command of men ts assigned to'every five or ten women
divers to CM'ry tlieni to and from the

arrive on tho grounds they leap Into
tho water at once, and begin to gather oysters at tho bottom. Tho oysters ore dropped into tubs suspend-!
cd from their waists.
When these are filled the divers are
raised to tho Biirfaco and jump into i
tbo boats. They dlvo to a depth of
irom five to thirty fathom without1
any special apparatus, and retain their
breath from ono tc throe minutes.
Their ages vary from thirteen to forty
years, and between twenty-five and
thirty five they aro at their prime.

An Income From Mushrooms
In many countries the mushroom ls
a decidedly valuable product. Wo usually think of raising them in cellars
or other nark places, and can hardly
picture them as growing In any other
[spot; yet the Japanese method is as
; peculiar as it Is interesting, for with
one species, known as Chlltake, experiments have been made   of   growing
them in trees.
The trees used are oak from twenty-
| live to thirty years of age.      Thoy
I are cut down In the autumn, and at
intervals of Gin.  or 6in. gashes nre
j made witli an axe all up ami down the
i trunk.     The tree., aro then hauled to
j little frequented parts of the forest
I and left there.
j    At the md of three   years   mushrooms appear In   the   Incisions,   and
1 furnish a erop whlob  lasts tho year
round, Ihose of the autumn being thc
most valuable.
This method of raising mushrooms
Is probably the least troublosomo in
| the entire world. What a vast differ
t-renco between this way of doing ihe
work and the method used in under
ground Paris and elsewhere, where
the people who attend to the cultivation of the mushrooms live In a lit-
lie world of their own ami seldom seo
daylight from week's end to another.

VERILY, the artist's touch finds ample
means oi: expression in the fashions
of the new gowns, for drapery is the
noticeable feature that gives the stamp of
the advanced modes in afternoon and evening dresses. Grace is the result if drapery-
be done with an experienced hand; if a
clumsy, unlovely disposition of folds be
made, the result is—disgrace. The general
rule for drapery is to pull the material
from one stationary point to the other
place of attachment, hold tightly with the
left hand and then pull out the folds and
loosen all lines with the right. Plenty of
pins are required and frequent experiments
are necessary to obtain just the curved line
which our copybooks tell us "is the line of
In this season the supple fabrics admirably lend themselves to drapery. There
is an art in draping a gown. It is not difficult, and the main ways of this fashionable
feature are here exemplified.
The chantilly lace-trimmed evening
gown shows the new way of edging a chiffon tunic over the satin slip. Broad black
lace is placed on the edge of a piece o.f
chiffon and attached to the waist line.
This is passed down in a curve toward the
back, and the long folds of chiffon are
draped up to the center of the back. The
other side shows the slashed tunic in front,
and hangs in the same way, a deep strip
of beads and fringe weighting down the
chiffon folds. The bodice of the gown is
chiffon, draped in surplice fashion over an
undervest of contrasting net. The drapery
of chiffon is held down at the girdle by n
broad fold of satin and a beaded ornament
to give the favorite one-sided efTeet.
The draped sleeve is shown in the
model with the long pointed train. One
Straight piece of chiffon is attached to the
armhole, draped around the arm and
caught at the shoulders, a slight opening
being allowed to show the arm. There is
an edging of round beads, and the fullness
is confined by a double chain of beads
above the elbow. The bodice is of chiffon,
folded over the form, a V-shaped space
being filled in with shirred mull at the
front and back.
Something new in the art of drapery
is shown in the black satin dress over
black point d'esprit. The material is attached in front under a narrow girdle.
The length of the goods is then swirled
down in graceful lines around the large
oval ornament at the side, then up the
back. After these folds are "just right,"
the upper edge of the satin is caught by
slipstitches to the jet ornament.
Crossed draperies are new and easily
made. The narrow ends of satin are laid
flat, one on the other, in diagonal lines.
The material widens out and falls easily
into graceful folds at the bottom of the
modified pannier.
In the dress of soft blue taffeta there
is a high girdle draped on the form before
being sewn, you may be sure. Horizontal
folds have been laid on the stiff lining,
then the silk has been turned over and
falls in slanting lines toward the waist
line. Sleeves have their fullness ilraped in
similar manner, while the skirt shows an
original disposition of the material by horizontal drapery below the knees. The fullness swings back, one side draped over the
other in the fastening.
The art of draping a gown need not
baffle any one. Perfection comes with
practice, and a "dress rehearsal," witli soft
cheesecloth for the "property," will give a
cleverness and deftness that will add
greatly to thc charm of a new dress.
Drapery is a salient feature of fashion.  The art is yours for the trying!
