white* of egg,
Whilst the ca'te was cookln* tbe
me.nbers transacted several items ol
routine business, among which there
were several from the Department of
Agr.cu.ture ot Victoria, one lettsr
was to the effect tbat tbe Department, through the Women's Institute
would provide tho School Gardens

This wus turned down by the ladles,
us tbey felt, that owing to tho neglected condition and the unprotected
state of tbo grounds, tliey wuu.d nut
be doing wbat wan right iu us.lug
for seeds to place where favorable
growth was Impossible

Flood of U. S. Capital to Western Canada

In discussing the prospective release of the tension uf the present
financial uituatfon and what it will
mean to the citleH of WeBtern Oaua-
du, Colonel (.'. H. Payne, of New
York, whose presence in Victoria for
lhe past yeur may be taken as symbolical at the growing interest which
Wall Street Ih taking iu tho development of this country, expressed the
opinion that it would give such a
stimulus to trade nnd Industry as
haH never yet been witnessed. In un
Illuminating nummary of the Bituu-
tion be forecasted an early cessation
of ttio hostile elements which are
causing money to concentrate elsewhere, and suggested a number ol local aud provincial undertakings upon
which the released capital would iii
evitahly come to expend itself.
Not the least noteworthy consideration of the colonel's rematks is to
be found m the fact that he speaks
rimarily of American capital und
the growing tendency tn invest it
"If we are correct in our forecast," lie said, "what will it mean to
Western Canada? In my judgment it

"About the financial situation generally, there te undoubtedly a better

Crnnbrook Lodge of the order Is to
bt congratulated on performing auch
a piece of work. We havo It on the
beat of authority for saying thnt
thoy are making preparations for an
even larger increase during tho year
full development of jour agricultural
districts, which nre In their Infancy,
of your fruit industry, of your Immense fisheries, of your dairy (lnd
I nultry trade, making it unnecessary
to longer import irom New Z.f.iand
and Australia, place you in position
to provide accommodation for tho
grain that will come ths vay ns
soon as you can tako care of it; the
provision of homes for tho hoards of
immigrants attracted here from T.ur(
o\.o by the shorter and cheaper route
soon to be offered by the oponi »g ol
the Panama Canal.
'In a word, you will he at once
placed in za commanding position to
cope with the large and profitable
trade within your easy reach to
Jtiaii, China, Australia, New .-.■■a-
laud, as well as the West Coast of
South America, a trade, which will
be rightfully yours when once you
art. s.uared away to seek it, and a
trade which none of us is ahle at this
time to ade i»ntely estimate; and
with your salubrious climate, than
which there is nono so good any
where ou earth, there is no -'eason
why you should not have here within
tbe next few years a Victoria of several hundred thousand inhabitants of
the happiest and most prosperous
people on the globe. The railroads
have already taken the initial and
portant steps toward the levelop-
ment of your whole Northwestern
country, exhibiting far reichiag enterprise and an intelligent conception
of what you are by nature endowed        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
with, and they are going to do for i Street guts a fair idea of what the
lof men te causing great concern
among brokers who have to maintain
expensive offices, private wires, etc.,
and they are beginning to wonder
where they are going to get off at,
as the saying roes, and it is only
natural that they should he worried
as they see expenses pile up duy utter day, week uftcr week, nnd mouth
after month, with practically nothing
coming in by way of commissions to
onset them. That some of theae will
be forced out of business by the
changed conditions, Is inevitable; and
while that Ip to be regretted, of
course, from ''i-ffi'y''personal point of
view, the country at large will not
suffer thereby, because the country at
large is not, or Bhould not be, interested, in the rise or fall of stock exchange seats, or in the number of
shares traded in each day, but rather in the legitimate value of 6ccuri
ties based upon their legitimate earning powers. This process of alow,
but certain evolution in the manner
cf doing thlnbs. is going to be om of
great benefit to thc world, because it
will lead men to seek employment,
not only of tholr time, but of their
capital as well, back ou tbe land
land whore some real snd honest
work js possible, and where the fruits
of their labors will be visible and ae
tual in tbe shape of something of
true value that gives satisfaction
and happiness to lile.
"As soon us Europe nuits talking
war, and if we are to place any confidence in the press dispatches this
will come soon, and as soon as Wall
you what railroads have done for
other portions of the world, develop
and build up your vast resource., relying upon yo i to take adpnntagQ of
their facilities nnd do your part in
Wilson administration is to be, financial sentiment, will brighten, and
bankers throughout the world will
show more interest in undertakings
for municipal development and otherwise, not only in Canada, hut every
where, and will oiler a better pric-?
for bonds and debentures. This
seems clearly the drift of the time—
and we have hut io wait patiently
for a llttlo while and then move on,
The cry of tight money It moro or
less justified, but is more duo to the
f et that bnnkers here and In thc
States saw rather ton much op'.OUln-
tion going on in one direction and
another, and assumed an attitude
ten.ling to check It-an attitude
will -h in the end will benefit everybody, am! possibly prevent disaster
to pome. Bankers have a way of
seeing things rather soonsr than oth-
ei i eople i nd of preparing to meet
exigencies ns they nrlse, but it is a
loor hanker who will not ta'.e due
care of legitimate enterprises of his
customers that ueed financial assistance; and lt cannot be said in any
general way that bankers do not do
this, for in the preservation «_f their
own best interests they are forced to
do it.
"The absence of any definite information regarding the Balkan situation wa*. a factor exercising a depressing influence a short time ago
but now that the atmosphere ls
clearing fast it probably won't bc
long before the discussion of the subject will be n thing of the paBt. ThiB
will have the effect of bring money
out of its hi ling places into the open
mantei, where it will eagerly seek
employment, and the inspiriting
noise of industrial machinery will be
heard atraia. Money goes into hiding when confidence gets wary; but
as soon as confidence is restored
money comes out into the open and
proclaims its price just as scilerB d■>
of must other merchandise. And
judging by the sigiiB of today it
won t be long before hoarding ot
money will cease in France and England and otber i arts cf the world,
and will become normal again; and
when Europe will no longer need
Uncle Sam's gold, hut will commence
to pay Uncle Sam back his large
trade .-alai.ee with specie o: her own.
"Thia ment'on of our exporting
gold suggests the thought that our
gold h is been going to South America for account of London hankers in
payment of beef and various food
products from Argentina and otber
South American ports to Europe, on
a triangular transaction which has
been a profitable feature of the shift
ing of money for several years paBt
a transaction made possible and ne
cesrary through our declining meat
industry in thc last few years. And
this In turn suggests the cost of living, which will not only go down but
will, in all likelihrnd, continue to
grow more burdensome until the American people learn the hard lesson
of economy, consume less meat, and
show greater willingness to return to
the soil, instead of congregating as
they have bcen dolnn tbe past ten
years in thc towns and cities.
"There are, it is true, certain unfavorable factors to be dealt with
which may keep bnck the full re
sumption of trade and commerce for
a time. The situation in Mexico,
for install .e. has taken an unexpectedly serious turn, and may even become more serious, but the large in.
vestmenL of money by capitalists in
Europe and this side of the Atlantic also is now being exeo
ted to avert any deplorable happening."
What has been heralded for some
tine locally, has Just been coasum
ated by the fact of ft being officially announced that the papers and
documents necessary for such a large
property, received the signatutes ol
the parties most directly interested
this week. This means that all the

it is Mr. Johnson's intention to carry on tho business on tbo same high

Improvements are to be made, such
as adding a lawn-tennis court, a

these will prove a great attraction
to this already attractive resort.
It is with great regret   that tbe

Inseparably connected, and tho fact
that Mr. Hanson is leaving Wasa for

Strange Story, Illustrating ths Superstition of the Lower Classes In
Paris. — The credulity, of the
lower classes In Paris is sometimes
incredible. Frenchmen and Frenchwomen, and more especially Parisians,
are. as a, rule, not unintelligent, but
when they are fools their foolishness
reaches a climax which is rarely reached elsewhere. A few days ago an
elderly man and his wife called on a
police magistrate and asked for advice. They explained.' tbat they had
for some time been victims of the
evil eye. They had been In service
in Havre, the husband ns a butler, the
wife as a cook. The man got sudden
fits of trembling, he declared, and
plates, bottles and glasses jumped out
of bis hand. The woman was influenced by the evil eye as well, and
used to make mistakes, mixing salt
with the puddings and sugar with the
They lost their places, came to Paris,
and the evil eye still troubled tbem.
So they consulted a thought reader.
Their description of what happened is
killlngly funny.
Sho shut us up in a dark room, the
woman said, and left us to go and put
the eye to sleep. After three hours
she came back, asked us for two
pounds, and said that we should soon
be froo of the evil influence We
were not. Wo took another place,
but tho same things went on again,
so we went back to the thought reader.
She did all sorts of things to us, got
all our money and thon told us she
could do no more. We begged her
not to desert us, and sho took my
husband's fur coat, the only thing of
value we had, shook it, threw it over
her hoad and said lhat the spirit of
the evil eye was hidden In it. I can
do nothing with fur, sho said. Tho
evil spirit knows that. But she gavo
us the address of a man named Father
Eugene, who could exercise spirits
even ln fur. Wo took him tho coat,
he told us to leavo It and como back
In a week. Wo did so, but'he has
changed his address, and nobody
knows wliere be Is.
Tho magistrate did not know either.

No combination is likely to prove so satisfactory as Winchester

Trailed by Thieves
Mr. Brlttaln sailed from Now York
on Uio Maurctanla toward the end of
November, arriving In Fishguard on
December 2, bringing with him a largo
quantity of luggago. At Fishguard
on leaving tho boat, he discovered that
tho identification letter on all his
trunks and portmanteaux had been altered, and in UiIb way part of his luggago had been claimed. The latter
was reported to tlio police, and shortly after his arrival In JxMdan Mr.
Brlttaln Imd tho missing trunks returned to him. But thoy had been broken open and lho contents ransacked.
At first It appeared to be nn ordinary luggage theft, but when Mr. Brlttaln examined the contents of lho

therefore, of great Importance, and

Documents Stolen
Mr. Brlttaln had occasion to journey to Dublin tho other night fn connection with these estates, and the
documents relating to them were
laced In a securely fastened portmanteau and trunk. Warned by tho previous experience, Mr. Brittain personally took charge of his luggage at Eus-
ton. He had, however, to mako an
Inquiry, and instead of being away a
few seconds, as he had expected, he
was detained about fifteen minutes owing to the congestion of tbo holiday
When he returned to his luggage he
found that tho additional padlock and
staples by which lhe portmanteau had
been secured had been forced off and
the contents ransacked, while tho back
of the trunk had been ripped open.
This time the thieves had been moro
successful, and Uie valuable documents
had vanished.
The thieves must have shadowed me
from New York, says Mr. Brittain. It
was certainly a conspiracy to obtain
possession of the -documents.

On iho following evening tho visitor again appeared at Uio Rectory, and
slated that his partner had died during lho day and that his last wish
was that ho r.ould be interred in
Lowestoft Churchyard, adding further
that as tho vessel waa obliged to

Conflict Stopped by Doctors After
One Principal is Badly Wounded
A fierce duel was fought here recently between Count Stephen Tisza,
president of the lower house of tbo
Hungarian parliament, and Count Michael Karolyi, a member of one of tho
oldest families"of Hungary.
Tho duel arose out of the stern measures of repression which were taka.n
by Count Tisza against the disorderly
tactics of the Hungarian Opposition
as a result of which ono of tho Oppo-
" ion M.P.'s attempted to assassinate
him. On entering the National Club
at Budapest Thursday afternoon Count
Tisza offered his hand to Count Karolyi, who is a member of the Opposition . The latter ostentatiously
thrust hi.-j hands into his pockets, doctoring that after what had occurred It
would be useless if he and Count Tisza
pretended to be friends. Afterwards
Count Tisza »ent him a challenge.
The conditions prescribed for tho
duel were that the parties were to
fight till one was disabled and without
protection save neck bandages. The
conflict was fought with heavy swords
and lasted for an hour. Count Tisza, who is extraordinary agile .for his
age, had the hotter of his opponent
throughout. Count Karolyi being a
big, heavy man. Count Karolyi who
who received several cuts, was badly
wounded in the arm In the thirty-second round, whereupon the doctors stopped the duel. Other duels are expected .

stories to tell.
One of Ihem Is nbout the drown
Prince of Germany. Ills Itoyal
Highness had jusl taken Inlo his service a new manservant, but tho overdone ceremonial obsequiousness of tho
man soon began to jar on his master.
Tho Crown Princo became so Irritated at last lhat the servant received
an Intimation to tho effect that tho
Crown Princo would prefer to be
treated with moro simplicity.
The next day, when tho Crown
Prince was seated writing at his table
ho suddenly felt himself tapped on
tho shoulder. Thinking it was his
wife, the Crown Princess, ho turned
quickly, smiling, only to behold the
servant standing beside him and regarding him with a friendly smilo. Before the astonished heir to tiie Throne
could find suitable words wilh which
to rebuke the man's presumption, the
latter jerked his thumb behind him in
the direction of lhe door.
Pappchen has come to seo you! he
Now. tho Crown Prince was expecting his father, the Emperor, and as
Pappchen literally moans Utile papa,
his Royal Highness nearly fainted
with horror.
Pappchen! ho gasped. Then, thinking the servant must have been drinking to talk of the Emperor In such a
way. he muttered to himself, his eyes
fixed in amazed inquiry' on tho man: Is
he drunk?
The servant apparently thought the
whispered remark was a confidential
request for information as to the visitor's condition, for, after scratching
his head in some perplexity, ho whispered back softly:
Drunk? Well, no; I didn't notice anything.
Raise Hog« -■■
Every farm has enough table slops
and skimmed milk, smutty grain or
other by-products to feed or nearly
feed enough hogs for one's own moat
supply. If you will take an aero of
your poorest land and plant in lt some
of tho good grazing crops and then
put a piece of mesh wire around' it
and turn the hogs in, you will raise
thrift, economical hogs and the land
you uso for this purpose will be so well
fertilized in a year that lt will bo
worth twice ns much for producing
your standard farm crops.
Give your hogs an acre of your tillable land and prepare it for them, and
you will find, if you will keep books,
that It pays you moro net profit than
any other acre on the farm. Of
courso if you put your hogs In a llttlo
6x0 pen and feed thom nothing but

your hogs a fighting chance thoy will

When ynu start out to raise your

A concrete milk-house
makes milk worth more
PEOPLE are willing to pay more
for milk that comes from a clean,

Churchill'sNaval Policy
(Continued From Last Wesk)
"There ls no more valua.de princi
pie than Imperial federation and iu
ter-dominion action. Wo cannot con
trol theso developments.    Eacb dom
nlon is absolutely free to take its
own couree. The admiralty wl 1 do
its beet to work loyally witb tbe responsible ministers of any govern
ment that may come into power in
uny part of the empire, ibat Is our
duty. But it Is also our duty, witb
our knowledge and experience In nav
al matters, to state clearly what we
believe to be the right io n 1 plan for
theso important developments to
combine as far as possible wbat Is
beet tor all."
Mr Churchill next routed out tbat
he had offered ln 1911 to build no
British capital ship this year If Germany built none. This had not borne
fruit, Germany had already emotion
ed the ships of  1913.
"But every event," added the Bret
lord, "brings its consequences with
It. Canada has rom1. forward, the
wealthy protecto-a-e of the Malty
states has como forward, the cumin
Ions of Australia and New yoiland
are already acting, and South Africa
Is on the move. A eu°tnin.d Impetus han nren given to the onlnion- nl
millions of mon, nnd great communities, spread acro's the face of the
earth, havo born nctuated by B common Impulse. The results, as far
an one cnn foresee tbem, nre that
nne capital ships wlll he constructed
on behalf of the empire in ths yonr
1913. That year le solid; tbere can
be no going back.   But tako the year
of 1914. I have no renson to believe
that it is the desire ol the Gorman
government to postpone or cancel
tbelr program for thnt year, but lf
so, they have only to mnko It known.
No ono builds dren noughts for fun,
nnd I can see no reason for not nr-
rlving at a complete agreement for
1H14, not only on I ehnlf of tho British government, hut ou behalf of tho
British Empire. The programs of
Franco, Russia, Austria and It.ly
must bo considered, Imt 1 sue no lu
superable difficulty in tbat. The influence of Britain ond German; noting together for police would bo price
less, measureless, i um convinced
I hit tho proaont dreary epoch must
Bonner or later bo terminated, and
one of the most stupid chapters in
tho whole history ot Hiiioiuaii civilization be brought to a tioBu."

however, the time to t t'e abo t the
five battleships projected for 1913,

he stereotyped. Mr. Churchill was
convinced that the difficulties of oil
iiel would be overcome. He r ferrol
to the aviaton ]rovisions, dwelling
upon the excellence ol the British hydro-aeroplanes and affirmed that tbe
time bad arrived to pro.ide long
range airships of the largest type. He
proposed to tnlist the service of
some great manufacturing firm in the
construction ol rigid airships. Meanwhile he trusted there would be no
silly panic. If war bro'te out tomorrow, he said, lt . odd he .oo'.ish to
suppose that airships could decisively
Influence the general course 6". events.
He announced that the admiralty
had arranged to lend to first class
Btitish liners guns, am un ion anl
train.d gunners to tnable them to
protect commerce agaiiut armed foreign merchant steamers in time of
war. He deplored the delay in sanctioning the Ma'coni contract. He
described at length tho reorganization which greatly added to the
strength of battle sqtadrons, also
tho reoreatii atlon of armored cruiser squadrons, gradually strengthen-
ng that stationed in tbe Mediterranean. In all, there would be 700 war
vessels of all kinds which Britain
could mobilize tomorrow. The service and training afloat of eve.y
man would be at the very least twice
as great as ln any other navy ln tbe
Mr. Churchill concluded by desiring
to explicitly repudiate the suggestion
that Britain could ever afford to allow another naval power to approach
bo nearly as to be able to restrict her
political action by purely naval pressure. Sucb a situation would unquestionably lead to war. A small
margin of safety would involve a
strain on officers and men wbicb
would be intolerable. "It would
mean," be said, "that Brit ln. instead of being free and independent
to intervene in European affairs, doing the beet we can for all, would be
forced into a series of questionable
entonglements and committed to acton of tbe graveet character In fulfillment of a bnr.-a n n-ccsBitated hy

Forest Protection
Tho problem ot preventing and
fighting forest fires iB cn* that Bhould
personally interest every citizen of
B.C., and yet it is amazinr—tbe indifference with which most people
treat it. A large torest fire, in a
heavily timbered province Uke British Columbia, when lt gets thoroughly under way is an evil beyond human rower to subdue. The only
practical solution of the problem
then is to prevent fires altogether or
provide means of checking them and
getting them under control in the
earlier stages.
To follow this plan one must make
provision for two things, vis: a certain and rapid means of communication, and B ready mesne of access to
any part endangered. Over tbe greater i art ot British Columbia neither
of these essentials is at band. As a
means of rapid communication the
telephone is obviously the most desirable, considered from the standpoint of usefulness and cost of construction and maintenance. For
woods work a (.Ingle wire (ground circuit) strung on trees has proven very
satisfactory, and may be constructed
at a remarkably low figure considering the protection afforded.
In the Nation il Forests of the Western States such lines bave been
built at a cost per mile, varying
from $30. to J80., depending on tho
accessibility of the country through
which they run. Branching trom
trunk lines, as mentioned above,
there may be built cheap, temporary
lines to "lookout po'nts" and logging camps.
A system of telephone linos tbue
constructed Ib certainly . tremendous
aid In the preventi n of large torest
tires, but at the same time must bo
accompanied by a system   ol  good
roads or pack trails, Tho best tbat
ran be done with the telephone is to
report all fires discovered, while they
aro still at a stage where they can
be controlled, hut this ls useless unless the means are nt hand to transport men and tools quickly to such
fires or in other words, unless a net
. ork of permanent trails is provided, whlcb wlll give ready access to
all parts of the country.
According to the nnnual report just
Issued, it Ib tbe Intention of tbo Provincial Forest Branch to gradually
construct telephone lines and pack
trails wbere they are most needed
throughout the Province, and in this
wny add to thc protection ot an asset that yields two and a half million dollars and one-quarter of tbo
public revenue eacb year,
Telephcuo line construction ls a
wonderfully cheap form of Insurance.
Wl h the greatest asset of ths country at stake, tbe butldli g of these
telephone lines should bo urged
In every quarter. A step in this direction is now being taken by fie Provincial Forestry Department, which
Is at present advertising for materials preliminary to the establishment
of the ttrst telephone service in connection with forest protection of
which Brltleh Columbia bas had direct experience.
Increase jn Materials
Canada shares in the remarkable increase in the use of all building material which has been one of tho chief
characteristics of the past quarter
century. According to the Commercial Review, whereas in 1894, we had
imports of cement of 93,473 barrels
—lees tban one-fiftieth barrel por capita; and of all classes of stool the
consumption waa 101,470 tons, a
trifle over one-fiftieth ton por capita; tho wood coneumptlon was something 'over 3,115,000,000 board feot,
or about 3650 (eet per capita,
In 1911 the consumption of cement
was 5,726,181 barrels, almost seven-
tenths barrels per capita, and ot
steel the consumption was 878,091
tons or one-tenth tons per capita.
Thc figures on timber used in 1911
will certainly be found to exceed
those of 1910, wben there was consumed well over five billion feet of
timber, which would give, with a
population ol eight millions of people, a per capita consumption ot 635
feet or more—almost equal to the
figure in 1899. Thle loaves out of
consideration entirely, the rapidly
growing pulp Industry, which had a
value of about ten millions in 1910.
Pulp is gradually taking the place of
lumber in many forms ol interior dn
iBblng and box manufacture.
To sum up: We use just as much
wood as ever we did, and in addition
we have brought Into service seven
times the cement per capita, and five
times tbe steel ws used in 1891. ...
"Wltb tbe forests of British Columbia opening up as tbey are, lt is difficult to estimate tbe great probable
Increase in tho amount ot timber ueed
in Canada," says the "Review."
"While the industry is capable ot an
expansion of five times Its present
bulk without gmpairlng the wood capital, one rather shrinks from the
thought of what condition forest
fires, it tbey once got .headway, might
leave. Canada has an estimated
growth por acre af 150 board feet
and a cut ot 135 board feet, but tho
fire loss in 515 board feet. Tbo terrible disproportion between tbe amount grown and tho amount removed
every year ls something which must
bo overcome it Canada ls to maintain
her place ln the fore of the timber-
producing nations.
"There may be soms excuse lor tbe
uss of an ever-increasing absolute amount of timber—jump ot fifteen fold
in tho last half century—or even a
slightly increased use per capita along
with enormous la-rease ln the uss
of otber structural materials, but
there Is no excuse for the waste
which we allow to occur annually,
making us poorer ln tbe piosent, and
crippling the prosperity of generations yet to como."

Why Beauty Is wealths
The Price of (^osmetics
Living, and Exclusive
Surroundings Pile It Up
BEAUTY bills are beginning to make themselves felt, even by those who haven*t
worried much about the high cost of
living. With the onward march of progress,
the time has arrived when dollars can be
turned into good looks most any old day
one has them.
Public parlors are all very well for those who
must count their pennies, but are sparsely
,  patronized by the billionaire class.   Experts
,.   come to the homes of the latter, and daily
-   visits are the rule with those who would look
well against all odds.
Even the traveling beauty doctor, however, has
become too common for the real elect. First
to realize it was the new Mrs. John Jacob
Astor, who has installed a complete beauty
parlor in her new Fifth avenue home—the
lirst of its kind in America.

THB ways or nature ore a Joke to tiie beauty
doctor. Growing old and ugly, nhe points out,
la a habit with those who can't afford to keep
In the bright lexicon of the ultramodern women,
bf the dollar princesses and tlio banknote dowagers,
there Is no such word as ago. Advancing years merely
mean that ©ore money will be required to keep them
from' showing.
At least such has been tho common supposition
until the undeniably young Mrs. John Jacob Astor
yielded early allegiance to the good-looks specialists
and installed a beauty parlor in her now homo for her
own exclusive use.
With some horror, a few of the old-fashioned
mammas heard of the Innovation. Willi them a beauty
parlor was hold to be the abode of unrighteousness on
general principles. Besides, what business hod a matron
who was barely of age with the follies lhat properly
belong to grandmothers?
Answered then the beauty doctors to tho effect that
the really wise person was Mrs. Astor, and that ahe
would never reach the stage wheu she would look as
old. as her critics, no matter how unkindly Father
Time might treat her.
The real and only genuine way to treat wrinkles
Wid blemishes, In the words of these producers of
artiflclal youth, ls never to let them appear. If the
face and bust are properly treated, they maintain,
there will be no invasions of blackheads or crow's-
feet, no gradual withering away, no loss of peach
"When some of the worldly wise ones hinted that
the youthful Sirs. Astor wbb looking forward to th©
wedding bells again, the doctors retorted that If she
went and did it tho second time, she would lose the
very beauty parlor that caused all the comment. By
the terms of her late husband'a will, tno Fifth avenue
palace ls to revert to tho Aslor estate should the
Widow remarry. In tiie latter event, Vincent Astor
would gain possession of the city home of his father,
and might install therein his mother, Mrs. John Astor.
What woman would want lo glvo up a beauty parlor that is said lo havo cost )l!u,li00?
A husband may bo a desirable adjunct to a house,
but ho has nover been considered a necessity-hardly
even as much of a luxury as an onyx-topped manicure
table. Many women have husbands, but few indeed
can boast of such n manicure table as adorns that
fceauty parlor that Mrs. Astor owns,
Nor Is tho table with tho onyx top more than a
moro accessory to the parlor. Other llltlu odds and
ends Include tt gold-plated comb, a Jeweled set of cuticle scissors nnd knives, marcel Irons, imported hnlr-
nuts, iiiiii polishers nnd what not.
Whim it comas to the real furnishings, thero oro
mirrors galore, so thut whichever way the young
widow turns, sbo may see hcrseir front, back Sideways-In fact, at any angle.   There In ulso „ reclining
chair, wlileli is used for the administration of treatments, U la something like a barber's chair, only much
rioro gorgeous. Of carved wood it ia, ami it revolves
as well as roollnos.

And yet, while' these arrangements for Mrs. Astor
may soem somewhat elaborate to the preludlcod
woman who is trying to mako ends meet on twenty
"per," thoy are only a shade moro pretentious than
those of tho women who must struggle along on the
Income of a million or so,

quality, ono gets only a row thimbleful!.
Also, you may begin to routine that a woman can't
be beautiful from her head up or her feet down.
There's lots that come in between, and nothing Js
slighted. From her hair to her toenails, the service*
of experts oro required to keep nature in subjection,
Treatments for this purpose come from $3 to $5,
as a general rule. These figures would not hold for
the classiest experts, but they are perfectly good for
the beauty doctors who go from house to house as
they are needed.
Tho woman who wants to look as if she "belonged"
must havo at least one treatment every day. Even
among tho rich, there are some distinctions. For the
everyday rich a doctor-of-ali-work will do. Usually
of the feminine gender, she will render such first aid
to hair, complexion and teeth as will serve for ordinary purposes.
Yet, for those moro particular, there must be hair-
dressers, manicures, complexion coaxers, chiropodists,
dentists, masseurs and maids of all degrees. There
are delicate depilatories to be gone through with, for
It Is just as Important that no hair should show where
It isn't wanted as that there should bo plenty whero
it will look best. When one of theso busy persons
gets to work a gray hair hasn't a show and eyebrows
and eyelashes are brought Into speedy subjection*
Then tho face must bo mauled, pummeled, steamed
and otherwise massaged, until all the blackheads aro
brought out and all the pimples Jammed in. Next come
cold creams, powders and the like, with electric treatments, when the appliances aro available. Lips and
teeth must not be forgotten, and it Ij Jrst as desirable
that the arms and shoulders should be of snowy
whiteness and downy smoothness as that not a hair in
an eyebrow Bhould be out of place.
Next wo como to the bust; and the rubbings and
poundings that are needed to keep that within bounds
are known only to the women wlio are afraid Ihcy
aro going to get as fat us somo other women thej
know. From there down to the toes there Is not ail
atom of cutlclfi Uiat dare be overlooked, for milady

must feci as thoroughly well groomed whero she Isn't
soeri as wliere she Is, if she is going to hold her bond
up among her kind.
-As for the feet, tbey require fully as careful attention as tbe hands, snd not atone from sentimental
reasons.  A careful hostess can't afford to be bothered
by a bunion when she wants to appear at her b st
Ho the pedicure and tho manicure run a close race for
favor. Kor must the same cosmetics tic used, i-'or tho
toes thero nro special preparations, and no solf-
respectlng woman would try to get along without
With all these things to be looked out for, a f.ilr
creature would havo no difficulty whatever In taking
up a whole day with her beauty doctors, Very often,
indeed, sho come:, mighty near lt In actual practice
And as to tho cost? That's lofgely a matter of
lier pocketbook. lf she makes not a groat many pre*
tensions, her treatments may be kep-J down to t'.o a
week. If sho Is a little ambitious to shine- she can
easily spend $100. A couple of hundred Is very easily
dispensed with, and after tt.at tbo sky ts tbe limit.
Somo months ago a Chicago woman, Mrs, <;< orgo A.
Trudc, declared in open court that her annual beauty
lulls wero $1S75. This rausod eomo surprise among
those wbo wero not in tiie habit of paying such bills;
but, as a matter of fact, lho sum was comparatively
moderate. Thore are thousands of women in Now
York, Philadelphia, Boston and other largo cities who
mako that amount look sick.
What with expensive cosmetics, the services of ex-
perls and the nttentlon of ordinary beauty doctor*
■110,000 to |15,000 a year is nothing unusual.
Speakiltg of tho fortunes that women of fashion
spend on their faces, a well-known expert, who has
parlors in New Vork, Philadelphia and Atlantic city,
recently said:
"I do not believe there la a wealthy woman In New
Yori; who hasn't enough sense to liavo herself properly cared for. They have awakened to tlic fact that,
if they spent thousands of dollar--- on tbelr clothes and
hundreds of dollars on their hats, ihey shouldn't
neglect tbelr faces.
"In Philadelphia 1 cannot say that every woman
whose name appears in the social register takes gnod
care of her looks, for there are still somo matron.1,
of the old school who stick to bygone conventions nnd
very foolishly have frowned on such practices. I'-ut
they aro the ones who suffer, as lliey have probably
found out by noticing tbe features ami faco.. <>f women
of their own age and sot who do undergo the treatments.
"Those of the advanced set realize that tho beauty
parlor is no longer a Joke. Indeed, ibis Is Shown by
the fact that we need experienced attendants, need
Uiem badly. There is a great demand at. the- present
time for young women to tube up the work, Uut It demands Intelligence, and no one can go into it without
Ftudy and training. A knowledge of anatomy is one of
■  tho essentials. The up-to-date establishment is really g
training school for these women. When they are proficient tbey can make an independent living without
any troublo.
"Many young girls aro taken In by fake school*
Tt Is a shame, for, instead of teaching tho pupils, they
ruin them; and It Is hard for them to start from the
beginning again when thoy realise their mistake.
Girls go out from these schools and give treatment*
for 60 cents. They put a lot of paint ond powder on
tho face and mako a big fuss while they are doing It,
Why, it's nn outrage! Fifty cents! That wouldn't pay
for tho proper kinds of cream and powder. And cheap!
creams ruin tho complexion. Thero is n real edue.i-
f Ion needed along theso lines, for Jt Is hotter for g
person to have ono good treatment a year by un expert than a poor treatment daily.
"Wealthy women understand this. They Inqtst on]
the best, and don't mind paying for It. I have cus-
tomers who do not think a thing of paying $20 for ona
treatment. It would surprise you to kuow how muds
interest somo of our most prominent, well-educated
and highly cultured women take in this subject. Thoy
make a. thorough study of tho mattor, und follow their
Instructions to the letter."
As Suffragists Would Reform Their Dress
SHOULD suffrage for women bring wilh il an
outward and visible lign of its inner and
spiritual grace? And if so, how spirituelle can
it make the gentle sulfragisls look)
No one has ever yet discerned anything spirituelle in
a badge, or in a banner, or even in a gold medal,
which all American sulfragisls deserve for good
conduct. They may be outward and visible, but
lliey are painfully material and coarse.
But if you could tell a suftragist a mile away, not by
lhe sublime expression of her countenance, which
ii a short-range distinction, but by her whole
glorious appearance, wouldn't thai equally please
and impress)
ANV, many suffragists, beautiful and otherwise— suffrago is for th" oppressed, whatever
their ago, ae.x and condition-have longed to
ho able to lei Ihelr light Rhine before men
without tho necessity of talking about it. not all of
them am eloquent! and many nro retiring, if not
taciturn. Anv simple expedient of costume, particularly If it were becoming, would meet the emergency
nnd. Should It have the high good fortune to grow
Into a fashion, would inn I.e. tbo greatest recruiting
agency that wus ever opened for lho ranks of suffrage.
Now, years after tho pioneers of woman's rights
fought    llirougli    tho    ribaldry    that    attended    tho
Lioomors which popular mockery Identified with their
ambition for tho vote, Mr*. Carrie chapman Gait, with
tho genius of u real general, has proposed a suffrago
uniform that ll baled on beauty as well as utility.
She han gono to China for It. "Drop all these
Parisian frills and fal-tols." soyi Mrs. Catt. "Discard
tbo COriet, Avoid thn light sUHt. Throw away our
awful hats.    Follow  tllO lead "f Dim graceful. delleatO.
(lower-like Chinese womon.  Enjoy at once a comfort
and health our sex hasn't known for hundreds of
years, and lm more booutlful than wn v« dared bo

Thin, however. In a matter of limits, 'lliere has
never been a llmo when woman's attire was ii«t. a
mutter O-f looks, nnd there wilt probably never be a
time when It won't be.   lf Mrs. Cat! had the power tn
command uii the suftraglsli m tho United mates to
make choice between suffrage and tho fashions, how
long would the campaign for tho suffrage escape a
eudden death?
