BRITAIN'S LATEST
ADDITION TO NAVY
Portsmouth, Eng., Sept. 5th.—
The most powerful battleship yet
ordered is to be laid down here
in November by the British Admiralty. She is to be 700 feet in
length and is to displace 30,000
tons while her high-powered turbine engines are to develop a
speed of 29 knots.
It is reported that the new
vessel is to be armed with 14-in.
guns, the first tried in the British
navy.
The B.C. Breweries, composed
of the plants in Vancouver, Nanaimo and Cumberland have been
sold  to  one  of   the  strongest
financial syndacates of London,
England.  Mr. Clarence Marpole,
of Macdonald,  Marpole & Co.,
representing the syndicate, having returned from New York,
where he completed the purchase.
The   price   runs   into   large
figures, but Mr. Marpole declined
to name  the amount.   A  half
million dollars will be spent immediately   in   remodelling   the
plants and bringing them up to
the  highest   modern  standard.
This amount will also include an
appropriation for the erection of
brewery at Prince Rupert, for
which incorporation papers have
already been taken out under the
uame of the I'rinee Rupert Brewing and Malting Co.
The crops in Minnesota and the
Dakotas are absolutely wonderful
was the observation that Mr.
Marpole made from the car window as he came* west. The railways are at a loss to know how
they are going to handle the grain
harvest, for they are having all

0. Box 1314, Victoria B.C.
VICTORIA, B. C, Sept. 4-
Four questions, every one of them
essential to the conservation of
the forests of Canada, will be
considered at the fourteenth annual convention of the Canadian
Forestry association, which opens
here to-night.
The convention will discuss new
methods of preventing the fires
which are constantly occuring in
the big forest lands of the country, devastating immense areas
from the Atlantic to the pacific.
It will also take up the question
of eliminating the waste in logging.
Still more important, it will
set on foot an enquiry to ascertain the actual state or conditions
of the forest reserve in the various provinces, with a view to
the establishment of a uniform
law with respect to forests
throughout the whole Dominion.
Most important of all, the convention will take up the question
of taking the forests of the Dominion out of the sphere of politics
altogether.
The idea is still in the formu-
lative stage, but it will be strongly urged that the forests of the
country shall be administered as
they are in Great Britain, and
in a number of continental countries. The idea is to have a commission which will administer the
forests of the whole Dominion, a
commission which will be responsible to the people alone, and
which will make all appointments
in the department, and all promotions.
This proposal for a commission

NO CHANCE FOR VANCOUVER IN LEAGUE
On the Nanaimo Cricket
grounds on Sunday last, the Cumberland juniors went down to
defeat in a hard game by a score
of 5-1. Cumberland boys started out with a dash and vim that
carried all before them, even
the school boy who played such
good game was beaten, and
Frank Slaughter scored a nice
one. Nanaimo pressed hard and
were rewarded with two goals
before half time.
In the second half both goals
were in danger, and only the
brilliant saves of the goal-keeper
saved a higher score, at one time
stopping the ball with his face,
but Nanaimo succeeded in putting 3 through while Cumberland was chewing the rag.
Wardill in Nanaimo's goal proved a star being thoroughly tested
by Tapella, Menzies, Parks and
McMillan.
The game was ably refereed by
Mr.  Orvington.
COURTENAY COUPLE
ID HERE
Mr. Reid Good and Miss Ruby
Hoffman United in  Matrimony in Methodist Church
of forestry has the sanction of
Premier Sir Richard McBride,
and of Mr. H.R. McMillan, chief
forester of British Columbia. Mr.
McMillan says that British Columbia is prepared to lead the
way in the proper conservation
of the forests of Canada, and Sir
Richard, while acknowledging
that he is not a forester, said
that he was heart and soul with
any movement wliich would conserve one of the greatest sources
of wealth of the Dominion.
The opening meeting was purely social. Sir Richard McBride
welcomed the visitors on behalf
of the province. In the course
of his address he declared that if
he had anything to do with it
British Columbia would not be
second to any part of America in
this movement for the conservation of forests. It might not
be possible, he said, that Canada
could immediately do what had
been done by the countries of
Europe, but he pledged himself
that his government would, if
given an opportunity, show the
people of British Columbia the
results they had a right to look
for.
The Provinces says: The soccer
clubs on Vancouver Island are
figuring on getting Vancouver into another professional league
with clubs comprising Nanaimo,
Ladysmith, Cumberland and
Victoria, but there does not seem
any chance for the Terminal City
to be represented.
The Islanders held a meeting
in Nanaimo Saturday, and made
arrangements for a five-club league, but just where the Terminal
City can put in a team to compete
is not known hereabouts. The
local league schedule can not be
drawn up yet on account of the
playing ground proposition, and
if the proposal Mann Cup games
comes off, and Recreation Park is
closed down at the end of this
month, the senior soccer men
will be without a field, as it is a
certainty that the new baseball
park will not be ready. Even if
it was possible to get the new
grounds it would be a losing proposition for the locals right from
the jump. There would be nol
stand accommodation on the new
field, and soccer followers, while
they object to paying extra admission to a covered stand, will
i certainly not pay real coin to
stand out in the open air in the
winter time.
The locals could easly get over
to Nanaimo for the games in the
Coal City, but it costs money to
go to Cumberland, Victoria and
Ladysmith, and there is not.
enough enthusiasm in the game
here right now to warrant the
officials of the local league taking
;a chance.
The dance held in the Cumberland Hall on Monday night by the
ladies of Harmony Rebekah
Lodge proved a very enjoyable
and successful one. Dancing was
kept up until the "wee sma'
oors," and everyone present declared they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Mr. Reid Good and Miss Ruby
Hoffman both of Courtenay, were
united in matrimony at eight
o'clock last Tuesday evening in
the Methodist Church by the Rev.
B.C. Freeman. The bridal couple,
accompaned by the bride's parents and the groomsman and
bridesmaid, arrived quietly in two
autos (Jrom Courtenay, but the
quiet dignity of the occasion was
somewhat broken when the
youthful element of the town
"caught on."
Mr. W. Halcrow, who acted as
groomsman, did not seem  to inspire the noi3y element with any
noticeable amount of fear, and
"Willie"  and   "Reid"   seemed
familiar  names.   However, the
youthful gang was soon joyously
despatched to the nearest candy
shop, and the happy party drove
out as quietly as they had come.
The Islander   extends   its
heartiest best wishes to Mr. and
Mrs. Good for a long and happy
life.

William Randle, eldest son of
Joseph Randle, of the Five Acre
Lots, Nanaimo, is the first victim
of the hunting season of 1912 in
British Columbia. While hunting
on Gambia Island on Monday last,
Air. Geo. Hill, of Vancouver, one
of the members composing the
hunting party, shot and instantly
killed young Randle, mistaking
him for a deer.
Five men composed the party
which left Vancouver on Satur-
. day evening headed for Gambier
'island for the opening of the
hunting season. All next day
tliey hunted without accident,
and early Monday decided to
separate. Messrs. Randle and
Hill took one side of the mountain
while George Hunter, a room
mate of Randle at the Richmond
apartments, took the other. Hill
started a deer and in chasing it
became separated from Randle.
He lost sight of the deer and a
short time after thought he saw
its tawny back in the brush and
fired. His shot was answered by
a cry. He rushed to the place
and found Randle dead, with a
bullet wound through thc neck.
Randle was hurrying towards
his companion, was crawling
under a log, and lifted his head
to see where Hill was when hi
received the fatal shot.
The deceased was but 22 yea s
of age, and was well known and
respected in Nanaimo.

Plasters, Ointments and Sulphur Were

Fills Made a New Man of Him.
Princeton, B.C., Doc 12.—(Special.)—
All over Canada people are telling of
the great work Dodd's Kidnoy Pills are
doing, and even in tho Hocky Mountain
fastnesses, where nature hides her
mines, men are telling of cures made
and sulfering relieved by the greut Canadian Kidney remedy. Witt, Murray,
sixty-six yenrs old, who has tramped the
frontier as lumber-jack, rancher, prospector, miner, hunter uud trapper, and
who hns frieuds all ovor tho West, is
oue of these. Many a tale of hardship
nud dangor can he tell, but his first real
trouble came when Rheumatism claimed
him.
"I slipped on the mountain side and
strained my kidneys, uud thou my
troubles all' seemed to set In at once.
1 had nearly ull tho symptoms of Lumbago, Sciatica, Neuralgia, Diabetes,
Dropsy nnd Bright's Disease," Mr.
Murray states.
"Thon I broke out in a terrible rash
that spread alt over my body and kept
me In tortures. I tried all sorts of liniments and ointments and took sulphur
enough to start a little hades of my
own. But it wus ull no use. Then I
tried Dodd's Kidney Pills, uud all I can
sny is thut tbey made a now man of

This gentleman was on his wny to a

While looking at the geese the Call-

The geese saw the eagle about tho

Heforo he hnd arrived opposite them
Uhey gave decided eigne of uneasiness.
They began to break up their regular
formation, a circumstance that caused
tho man to gaze upou tho scene with
increased curiosity.
At ouce they formed into two hollow
squares. The* eagle waa now opposite
iml a littlo below the geese. One square
hung perfectly perpendicular in the air
with hardly a flutter of the birds'
wings. The other huag aa motionless,
but in an oblique position. If the eagle
■taw thom he gave no sign of attention,
but kept straight on his courae. Then
juat aa he arrived directly underneath
the geese something happened.
With a concerted movement the geese
that formed the lower or slanting boi
low square swooped down In the direo
tlon of the eagle. Their sudden rush
caused the big bird to turn out of hia
course and fly rapidly toward the north.
The geese then wheeled and flew back,
joining the birds thnt had remained almost motionless in the perpendleular
hollow square.
The two groups having joined, the V
formation was resumed, and the geese
continued their flight toward tbe south.
As n rule, eagles do not attack geese.
Besides, this eagle was hardly in a position to do ho. His evident intention
was to fly along on his own business.
The geese wero the ones who mado tho
attack, if such it could be called.
THE POWER OF WATER
WHEN a swimmer slaps tho water
forcibly with hia hand, or takes
a back dive from a pier and
lauds squarely on his back, ho realises
thut the unstable liquid offers not a
little resistance. Yet it is surprising
to loam what water will do under certain conditions,
A stream from a fireman's hose will
knock n man down. The jet from u
nozzle used in placor-minlug in the West
cats awny a lurgo piece of laud in a
day, toys with great boulders as if they
were pebbles, und would shoot a mun
over the country ns though he wero a
projectile from a cannon.
There is a story of mi Easterner of
grent strength who wagered that he
could knock a hole through tho jot of
one of these nozzles with u sledge-hammer, lie lifted his arms, swung the
sledge, and came down on tho ten-inch
stream with a force that would have
dented a blacksmith's anvil. But the
jet, nevor penetrated, whisked tho big
hammer out of the man's hands, and
tossed lt many feet away Into the debris of gold-bearing gravel.
A cavalryman thought that ho would
have an easy job in cutting a two-inch
stream with his sword. He mnde thc
attempt at a power plant in Colorado.
It was a valiant attempt, but the result was that his sword was shivered in
two and his wrist broken,
A little thinner jet of water descending sixteen hundred feet to a manufactory nt Grenoble, and travelling at
tho moderate speed of one hundred
yards a seeond, fractured the best Toledo blades.
THE CRAZE FOR FREAK DANCES
THE dancing season iB beginning, and
already there is everv sign that
it will bo a bigger Boston year
than ever. In addition to tho Bostons
nd two steps with which wo are bitterly familiar, two new specimens have
just mado their debut: the Boston Trot
und the Judy Walk. If they become
renlly popular, we must say goodbye to
dancing as a fine art.
When the Boston first appeared in
Kngland several years ago, English
dancing was in a very bad state. The
vnise was the only really popular dance,
and oven that wiih nn unknown quantity to a great many dnnccrs. Then
the Boston appeared, and was hailed
with joy by those who had never taken
the  troublo  to master the  valse.    It
is so easy, so simple, above all, so
truly American, that they welcomed it
with opon arms; aud tho "Bawston"
becamo the rage. Iudifferent valsers
went to dances with pride. If they
could not valse, they no longer folt
stupid—they did the Boston. It is a
remarkable fact that Bostons never
have, and never will, appeal to good
dancers—those who can really dance
realize that no Boston in the world can
The original Boston was danced in
a star. The method of holding was
identical with that in tho two step, well
to one side, nnd tho feet never left the
floor. That is a great feature of the
art of Bostoning, and its one redeeming
point. Everything is smooth, with thc
whole foot on the floor, the movement
producing a long, swinging glide. The
actual Boston step is done by taking
two long slides backwards, and drawing
the feet together, then repeating the
same thing forward. After doing this
six times, in the origlnnl Boston, n swift,
bird-like run followed, with the feet
close together. When the Boston first
came in we resented the wild onslaughts
of enthusiastic Roatoners from every
eornor at once. Now we are getting
used to them. All that remains of the
original danee ia the step and the
"run," which is introduced into any
Boston at any moment.
Last year, the Nino Boston waa very
popular, and is so still. It consists of
an ordinary valse turn and three long
steps backwards into tho centre of the
room. From there one reverse valse
turn ia token, followed by the three
steps outwards, to the wall In both
cases the gentleman goes backwards;
and by a series of circlea and oblique
lines the dancers progress nround the
room, (iirls like thiB dance, becnuse
they run no risk of trending on their
dresses. It is called the Nine Boston
becnuse it takes nine beats to complete
the step, and thua it la always danced
againBt the music—aa moat Bostons are.
Always Serviceable.—Most pills lose
their proportiea with age. Not so with
Parmelee's Vegetable PUls. Tho pill
mass is so compounded that their
strength and effectiveness is preserved
and the pills can be carried anywhere
without fear of losing their potency.
This is a quality that few pills possess.
Some pills lose their power, but not so
with Parmelee's. They will maintain
their freshness and potency for a long
Lately, sinee Boatonera have increased
by hundreds, each little clique and aet
has its own particular Boston. Aa a
matter of fact, ao fow poople really
know what a Boston is that they just
turn n little, run a lot, dance against
the rhythm all the time, and call the
result "their" Boston. It is a very
simple method of being in the fashion.
At tho moment, the height of perfection
In Bostoning apparently consists of a
scries of half turns, half reverses, and
a lightning run sideways. The beauty
of a Boston lies in the knowledge that
no rule applies for more than a few
days. It changes with tho whim of its
interpreters.
Of the many types of Boston uuder
which we have suffered, tho Vague is
certainly thc best. Thia dunce reached
us recently via Pnris. In America it
is known as the Wave Waltz, in Paris
as Lo Vague. The chief pnrt of it consists of a loug, wave-like dip, produced
by u slow slide backwards, with the
knee bent. When the log ia straightened tho double movement produces a slow
dip, like a wave. Tbe Vague itself
takes three beats of music, and from
tliere the original Boston step Is performed, twice. The Vague is repeated,
also the step, reversed this time. The
Vague comes ou tho off-bent in the
music; and the lady alwaya goos backwards. This Boston is not easy to do,
but, onco accomplished, it bus a fascinating swing of ita own that acta it
high above other Bostons.
'lhe latest arrival Ib the Boston Trot.
This ia the product and effect of generations of Bostons. Thoy have rendered real dancing a torment, and, by never
fitting the music, have gradually caused
it to be played faster and faster, till
even Bostouers feel uncomfortable wben
dancing to it. So the Trot has beeu
invented to meet the case. Put your
partner backwards, and, holding her
well to one side, trot eight little steps
down the room, turning on the sixth so
that the gentleman goes back, Theu
break into the original Boston step, repeated twice, very slowly.
By that time tho lady should be side
ways, facing the wall; then take eight
qttiok steps sideways, passing tho foot
behind and in front. Thut ends the
Trot, which takes up twenty-four burs
of music, uud is repeated as often as
possible. It is danced straight, around,
and sideways. You trot, nnd Boston,
and wriggle; so it surely fulfils every
requirement,
In addition, there nre Three Bostons,
Doublo Bostons, und the Boston Two-
stop Valse, which is the Huston step
done to two-step music, with the second
step long,
And finally there is tho Judy Walk.
This is a mongrel among dances; a
ridiculous caricature of all that is most
unpleasant iu American dances. First,
dutch your partner tightly, extending
your arm rigidly downwards. Theu
waddle three or four steps slowly to
the right and back ngain, working your
arm from the shoulder like an animated
pump handle. Repeat the performance
to the left. If possible, this should bc
done in the centre of the room, ns these
.ludy Walkers do moBt damage. If the
centre is occupied, the edge must be
chosen. In that case, progress the opposite way to the other dnncers—with
much arm action—and collisions will be
frequent and disastrous. It is a ridiculous dauce, and deserves instant condemnation. But judging from the lengths
to which Bostoners hnve gone, it seems
highly probable that the Judy Walk will
thrust itself upon us this winter.
Bostoning is a habit that grows alarmingly. This year there will bc thousands
more so-called Bostoners. If they would
only take the trouble to do even one
of these weird dances properly, the Boston would not be so maddeningly futile
aB at present. Though everyone thinks
they can do it, in reality very, very few
know anything about it. The Boston
seems to have been invented for the
benefit of those without, know.edgo of
time, rhythm or dancing, nnd for them
it covers a multitude of sins.
With the Horses
THERE is in the stable of Doc. Simon,
proprietor of the Duke of York
Hotel, IJiieen street enst, in tbis
city, a colt, the like of which there is
not one in Canada, for the simple reason
that it iB the only animal in this country that wns sired by tho noted Cnli-
forn la-bred stallion, San Francisco,
2.n-JV1t tlmt wna bought last fnll by the
Walnut Hall Farm, Donerail, Ky., to
heud the band of noted brood mares of
that establishment thnt were sired by
the great Moko and Wnlnut Hnll, the
latter the si"» of the world's champion
trotting Stallion, Tbe Harvester, 2,01.
Thc colt at BiJiiou 's stable is a chestnut in color; out of the chestnut mare
CreBcclla, a daughter of tho former
world's champion trotting stallion, Cres-
cons, 2.02'/,.
'i'he second dam of this youngster Is
a daughter of Herold, the aire of Maud
8„ 2.08%, etc.
When I was flrst informed that sucb
a colt was in existence in tbis city, I
waa a little doubioua about It, aa I knew
that after being brought over from
Calfornia, and raced through the Grand
Circuit, San Francisco was Bold to go
to the Walnut Hall Farm, but it will be
remembered that when P. W. Hodges
first brought the stallion East and located It at Detroit, he got into deep water,
with the result that San Francisco was
leaaed to n party of that city who mated
blm with severul mnres in the aprlng of
1900, before the horse took up bla racing
campaign. Among those marea was
Creseella, the mare tbat ia now owned
by Oeorge II. Ketchum, of Toledo, Ohio,
former owner of Cresceus, and, although
she was trained, she did not get to the
races for the simple reason that a mile
in about 2.20 appeared to be the limit of
her apeed, and that ia not considered
mueh on a mile track.
It la Wise to Prevent Disorder,
Mnny causes lead to disorders of the
stomach and few are free from them.
At the flrst manifestation thnt the stomach und liver are not performing theii
functions, a course of Parmolee's Vegetable Pills should be tried, and it will
be found that the digestive organs will
speedily resume healthy action, Laxatives and sedatives are so blended in
theae pilla that no other preparation
eould be so effective as they.
However, as very few of the get of
Creaeeus over amounted to anything
from a apeed standpoint. Creacella waa
no exeeption to the rule. Still, for all
of that, I am of the opinion that thia
mare wilt become noted aa a producer
of trotting speed, just as I expect many
other daughters of Cresceus to be noted. Thia may appear strange to aome.
In view of the fnct thut the get of
Cresceus were failures as trotting
prospects, but so wero the got of Cros-
cens' sire, Robert McGregor, 2.17Vi. The
latter was nut a howling success as a
sire by any means, except that his
daughters were great producers, nud I
firmly believe that tho daughters of
Cresceus will become equally aa great,
if not greater, as matrons.
The little chestnut colt owned bv
Simon is now five months old, although
it might easily be taken for mueh older,
us it is perfectly developed, hns excellent bone und large quarters, and shows
unmistakable signs of quality, more especially wheu turned loose in the field,
on which occasions he cnn strike a gait
on the trot that makes him look like n
wonderful youngster. It la Simon's intention to break this colt ns a yearling,
and then aa a two-year-old place him in
the hands of a competent trainer. If
the prognostications of San Francisco'a
success us n sire are realized, then
Simon ia on the ground floor witb a royally bred San Francisco colt that may
fairly be expected to develop Into a
champion trotter,

farmers who were livinginlong tholr

living along the Company's lines.
The farmers were also luvllod whon
they came to Winnipeg lo call on the
ollicials of the Qompany, who were
always glnd to have them come In
nnd discuss matters of mutual Interest. Brief remarks were made on
the bejter care of machinery on the
average Manitoba farm, and on good
roads showing libw the farmor could
save considerable In llis trnnsporta^
tlon Charges by hauling his grain to
dial-kit1 over n good road: the difference In hauling on a ,good road and
a' poor road on 1,000 bushels for a
distance of 6 miles being over $40.00.
Emphasis was also laid upon tho necessity of higher education for the
young men and yotlng women on the
farm; that every farmer should If he
could at ail afford It, send ills sons
and daughters to the Agricultural
College to lake a course. This would
prevent so many young men and'
young women leaving the farms and

What the Editor haa to say.
A recent editorial in the Pall Mall Gazette has given expression nml form to a principle both wise and sound. It snys:
" It ig already a remarkable thing that two of the greater
powers, the United Kingdom and the United States, hold in
common the tongue that Shakespeare spake, and a third will
be added to their company. Before many decades have carried
us to a point of the twentieth century which will be reached
by many now living Canada will have a population equal to
our own. It will be backed by the material resources even
more ample than ours, and the citizens of the Dominion, owing
to climatic conditions as well as to heredity, will possess a
natural vigor—and, we doubt not, a moral energy—equal to
.the physical fibre and inward temper of any strong people yet
known. Canada, as we hope, will be inseparable from the
Mother Country, yet not wholly separated from the kindred
republic, but attached to it on the contrary by ties of true
fraternity. When there are three great English-speaking
powers in existence the question of what manner of public
relations are to exist between them will be the vital issue for
each of them and will present for solution, before the rising
generation passes away, the biggest as well as the best among
all the problems of world policy. The maintenance of the
British Empire may depend, during the next couple of decades
or so, upon the action of Canada; and the greatest of the self-
governing states under the flag will also play a vital part in
•Jetermining what permanent relationship is ultimately to exist
lietween the American .Republic and the British Empire as a
whole. What might they not do together. We shall not
ray thet they could not impose peace upon the world, for a
large part of human concerns is none of their business and we
hope they will never attempt to take the whole universe in
charge. But they could place all their own common interests
upon a basis of impregnable security Above all, they could
muke all the ocean routes, which are the main pathways ol
human intercourse, as safe as Oxford Street under the quiet
i.upervision of a civil police. They could assure absolutely the
peace of the seas and the attainment of every democratic ideal
— springing from the root of tradition yet unfolding towards
i trength in freedom—that the English-speaking communities
hold in common. Years may elapse before the question of an
indissoluble alliance between English speaking communities,
destined to include three of the greater powers in their own
family circle, can be practically mooted or wisely advocated
The vision we have suggested is the best hope of the world,
ni.d sooner or later it will come."
This editorial needs no comment.
A movement was started some time ago by the residents of
West Cumberland to try and induce the Electric Lighting
Company to inaugurate a system of street lighting in that
i nl,uili, and to extend to Chinatown and Japtuwn. For some
) ecison the movement did not materialize, partly owing to the
foot that at the time it was drawing towards the summer
Mason, Now the time is drawing near when the long dark
v. inter nights will necessitate the use of some kind of light.
The cost of lighting this street by electricity will be very
Hmall) somewhere between $1.00 and $2.00 a year per house.
This is a small item compared with the advantages gained by
Mich installation. The majority of the people living there are
i-i favor of the proposition, and no doubt it will not be long
1 *fore the street lights are extended right down to Chinatown

The elephant at the 'Hiverdale Zoo

been bothering It, the operation being
witnessed by a number of persons

though to dislodge something unpleasant. At last, after moving Its trunk
frantically, the animal drew some-
thing from Its mouth. li cast the
tooth thus extracted out of the enclosure. The molar was large, and
had evidently bioken off in the gum,
as alt the root uid not come out.
The crown was in a good stale of

Iii VERY dre» needs the flubbing toui'h. Perhaps you may
U disagree with me. Thon let mo suggest that you try
your new gown without it.
What doos the finishing touch dot It completes the
nental picture that every woman should have of herself In
her Mew gown. Sometimes it takes a woman a long time to
look the way she wants, but it is not just what ahe wants.
There must be the last touch, of that great artist, Taste.
Velvet and Lace Hat
This touch Is always a slight ono—often thb addition of
the most trilling accessory— but from it comes the expression, lt is the correct expression in dress for which women
ihould strive. The merest accessory should bo thought out
with care. It must not ouly bo right in itself, but it must
boor the right rotation to the costume of which it forms a
part and it must be rightly woru.
Todny tiie scurf plays nn Important part In correct gowning. 80 much ko, in fact, that more thuu hull' of the newest
French frocks are made with a watching or an artistically
•uiitrnsting scarf. Indeed, fabrics und such 'lovely ones,
too, are now manufactured exclusively for scarfs. There
tre exquisite creations iu such shades as peach blow witli
fairy spider webs of gold woven through thorn, and tliere are
.•hangenble chiffons which in some lights look a lovely soft
blue uud in otliers have the gold and pink of a sHuset's glow.
And thoso fairy-like fabrics, too, often shimmer witli threads
el gold or silver.
But it is not only with evening frocks tiiat. tho scarf is
the mode this season. It is quite tlio right accessory for tho
tailing costume and for certain types of atreet gowns. The
fashionnble black nnd white touch ls ofteu introduced in
the shoulder-scurf and muff, and tho now idea, is to have tlio
scarf white ono side nud black tlio other or vice versa.
A fetching scarf fresli from I'aris is of white moiro bordered with white chiffon and lined with black chiffon.
Thoro is a mull' to mutch this scurf, uot a very practical
one, to be suro, for it is a creation of whito moire mid blnck
flhilTon. But it is decidedly necessary for the right effect.
Such a scarf and muff set as this, of course, is only appro
priate for dross occasions. However, tho model is a very
.mart one to develop into other materials which would bo
more practical and loss striking in effect. For instance, in
roynl bluo velvet, with an edge of blaok marabout or blnck
chiffon and with a muff to match, It would be extremely good
looking, or in gray chiffon with a mole-skin border. In both
casos, tho lining should be of a contrasting color and preferably of satin, rather than chiffon.
Girdles and belts mako tolling dress accessories. They
*ount for much more tban ono would imagine. One of the
newest ideas this season is tho soft girdle with long ends.
Its cbio effect, howover, depends almost entirely on the way
il which it is worn. The cuds generally 'depend from a rosette or a numbor of upstanding loops, and this finish should
come at tho left side of tho front, just a trifle toward the
back. In some cases the girdle is worn about the waist just
abovo the normal waist line, but the rosette is arranged well
ap 0* the left sido, so that it ii almost undor the arm, tbe
«nda hanging from thore,
Tbo softest of silks and satlna are used for these girdles
with long ends. Having tho ends simply frayed out as a finish, giving a fringed effect, is conslderod amart. A decoration
of hemstitching for the long ends is also extremely new and
»»ry fashionable
A simple, but attractlvo, girdle is made of soft changeable blue silk, showing different toneB of bluo. On the innor
aide of the girdle, on tbe loft side, are neatly fastened the
two ends, the loops standing up above the girdle. These
ends have for their decoration 1 row of wide hemstitching,
worked in very dark blue. A coarse silk crocheted edge frequently lu a decidedly contrasting color la another new finish
for tho onds of a silk or satin girdle, while below the crocheted border hangs silk fringe in the aame shade as the girdle
tnd ends. Buch an accessory Is extremely smart in black
with the fringe black and the silk crocheted touch worked in
brilliant emerald greoi or corise. The ends ahould be looped
over one another at the left side, so that one will be longer
than the other.
Sectional belts of either silk or suede, the sections outlined with a piping in contrasting color or a oontrastlng
material, nre extreinelv good style this soason. The newest
ire very wldo, measuring at least flvo Inohes. Pipings, by the
way, havo never boen more modish. Somo of the .broad
girdles of soft satin, which are so high that thev form a
t*orsolet, are bound with a piping of velvet, or satin in a darker shade. These girdles, though they fasten Invisibly, aro
generally trimmed with mittens having a velvet centre, and
two rows of such piping ns a decoration.
Oollaranil-cuff sols, If mado of tho correct material, alwaya provido an attractive finishing touch. To wear witli a
.Ilk gown, a net collar made in two scant ruffles, with cuffs to
match, and trimmed wltb a beaded deslgu Is effective and
«ew. Tho small, beautifully tinted wooden bends usod in
> aeroll pattern make a novel decoration for a collar-and-
cuff set which is either made of coarse net, suede or of veivot,
according to the frock with which they are to bo worn.
Sometimes, very charming offocts can bo obtained if small
Iridescent beads are used, though they are not as new as the
eolorod wooden beads.
A very now littlo finishing touch, but a very smart one, is
to use pearl buttons with u tailored suit. For instance, if
one's new tnilored suit Is dark blue, pearl buttons sewed on
with dark blue sewing silk give a very fetching touch.
Bits of tapestry are being usod to form very smart-
looking accessories this season. A cordellere bag made of
tapestry and mouuted In dull silver with such long silk
hnndles that tho bag reaches far below the knees is a much-
to-bo-desired dress accessory. Of course, the older and
rarer the tapestry, tho more the bag is prized.
When a tapestry bag is being carried as a finishing touch
of n costume, it is well to introduce just a bit of the same
tapestry somewhere in the gown, perhaps in odd-shaped
revers, in the belt, or even for the crown of tha high close-
fitting hat,
Flowers, as a dress accessoy, are very much tha vogue,
but thoy aro flowers of a new sort which Fashion is' favoring.
Silk and satin and Matron are used in making them aud indeed they are very lovoly. However, the majority do not follow tho natural blooms iu their coloring. Tliere aro blue-
grny roses and fut little rosebuds in shaded tones of violet,
but they produce just tho smartest, effects. Sometimes one
Inrge rose in used to fasten the girdle nt the loft side, or in an
evening frock, a tunic of chifi'ou is caught with a trailing
vine of satin and chiffon flowers.
The butterfly makes u smart accessory, too, not only for
llflit ornaments but us n belt decoration. A largo blnck
velvet butterfly makes a very charming finish for a velvet or
satin girdle wliich is higher at the back thnn the front. The
butterfly looks its best made of black velvet with the wings
bound in some delicate shade of satin, light blue, rose pink
or n lovely tone of yellow. When giving Iho finishing touch
to a hair ornament, the butterfly is quite small and such ma
tennis as gold of silver gauzo are user! for the wings, which
are then studded with iridescent, spangles.
Sometimes the velvet butterfly lights on a hut. For
instance; a black velvet draped toque wiil have in place of
two velvet wings at the side or at the back, a buttor'lly, not
n very natural-looking one. however, for if the hat is black,
the butterlly is black, too, with the inner side of his wings
tu some very vivid shade of satin such as emerald green or
Venetian blue or orange, lluttcrflie.s used in this. capacity
never havo llie wings spangled. The butterfly is nlwnys of
the same fabric as the lint and is really principally used
to introduce a striking color note whicli is given iu the wing*.
To look well gowned witli the smallest expenditure of
money, time aad thought is tho ambition of every woman
with limited income aud unlimited demands on time und
strength, '.tie day has gone by when she can go about look-
ilg shabby and unt'o.sliionably gowned, deluding herself in
file belief that no one indices the womnn who is incouspicu
eusly dressed, for shabby, old-fashioned clothes uro now
conspicuous,
It is net necessary to accumulate 11 lot of clothes to attain
the desired result. 'Of course vnrioty is delightful, and to
have just the right gown for every occasion means n serenity
of poise that mnn, mere man, cnunot realize; but as thnt
stnte of bliss is known only to tho favored few, the next best
is to havo tiie half dozeu gowus or the winter outfit "just

THE ADVANCE OF THE SAHARA
TlIIKni'l has long been much disagreement among scientists
as to I tie nuestion of tlic antiquity of the Snlmm desert,
and over the luanuer iu whicli it was formed. Tliey
agree, however, that the dryness has much increased during
the centuries that have passed since Home was n mighty
empire. One French savant, who made the arduous jt.nrnev
from the Niger lliver to Lake Tchad, brought back much
Satin and Veivot Hat
interesting information regarding the progress of the arid
region southwards.
It appears thnt the country that extends from the Niger
to-Lake Tchad, between thirteen and sixteen degrees north
latitude, is completely barren of permanent water bodies.
For more thnn eight hundred miles it is a tropical region
without u watercourse. Ouly yesterday—as geologists count
time—all this was different. The Niger received from the
left Immense affluents, veritable floods. Then giraffes and
elephants, it is believed, wandered even to the borders of
Mediterranean Numidia, seeking the abundant vegetation.
Presently came the Mohammedan conquest, with its tribes
of nomadic Arabs, and the invasion of nomadic Arabs, and
the Invasion ef the Tuaregs trom the east, accelerating the
Snhnrau devastation.
These invaders burned over great tracts of land, destroying vegetation and leaving nothing to bold the fallen water
in check. The hygrometric state of tho atmosphere was Impoverished, The vapor was uo longer condensed. The rain
failed, vegetation disappeared, and the soil and rocks were
left exposed to the direct action of heat aud cold, nnd of tbo
winds. The decomposition of tho granite filled the dry riverbeds with sand for great distances.
The advance of this phenomenon bos not stopped at the
odgo of tho tropicB. The Sahara, it is thought, has gained
toward the south steadily. It is established on all the northorn parts of Lake Tchad. Although it appears slow, its
march Is extremely rapid, compared with other geologic phenomena. Hurth, tho Oermnn explorer, found water in abundance sixty years ago, whore tho expedition of Peres suffered
from thirst in 1904. The old men of North Adair sbowe^
Poroz rivers which In their youth flowed aeay aeitkf ef
the year, but were at the timo of tlio Frencn expedition
entirely dry.- Lakes yesterday permanent, which tbe French
exiioctcd to And full, were dry, and did not replenish themselves, except during the two months of winter.
BAD LOT OF JAPANESE WOEKINO
G1ELS
ONE of the many knotty problems
which confront Japan as she ex.
punda commercially aud industrially is without doubt the question of
the protection of labor. The lot of her
male laborers is uo enviablo one, but
tho cruel treatment to which her working girls ure subjected is, if we are to
believe Dr. Kiiwa'da, u shock to humanity. Or. Kuwndu, a member of the Japanese Houso of Peon, has given docply
sympathetic attention to the lnhor question in his country, ne hns also speut
severul yenrs in Kurope, studying its social problems, Discussing in the Shin
Koron (New Public Opinion), a Toklo
Monthly, tho condition of the female
laborers In Japan, ho makes a strong
plea for tho prompt enactment of a hi-
bor low adoquato to restrain tlic nets of
unscrupulous employers:
"Thero nre in Japan about ten thousand factories nnd workshops, employing about a million laborers. Of tbis
total ubout seven liundrod thonsund are
females. As there is no law limiting
the age of factory hands, almost 10 pur
cent, of the female laborers are under
fourteen yoars. Twenty por cont. of the
girls aro employed in match factories,
and one per cent, of those in the glass
and tobacco factories, are oven under
ten years. We have adopted compulsory
education, but how are we to enforce
it in the absence of any legislation tbat
forbids the employment of children in
workshops and factories! The adoption
of a labor law has been talked about
more than once during the past several
yoars, but the attempt has been nipped
in tbe bnd by the strenuous objection
offered by a class of capitalists.''
Dr. Kuwada tells us heartrending
stories of how tho army of 700,000 work
ing girls has boon recruited. At flrst,
we nre told, the employers hunted the
daughters of poor people living in large
cities, but ns the supply from this source
was soon exhausted they turned to rural
districts for a fresh supply. The agents
of fnctory-owners go into the country
and persuade unsophisticated farmers to
send their daughters to tho factories,
explaining whut u fino opportunity thc
girls will have to acquire refinement nnd
culture in the Inrge cities, nnd telling
what beautiful things and interesting
places there are in the city, nil of which
factory girls aro freo to soo and vii.it
on Sundays. The good, credulous men
of the hamlet and village readily believe the cunning agents, and allow'their
daughters to go, only to seo them come
home, nfter four or five years, broken
iu health and spoiled iu character, if,
indeed, tliey do not dio beforo their
term oxpires.
The treatment accorded to these girls
is aa outrage,   Says Ur. Kuwada:
'' In some factories it is no secret that
the time-keepers are instructed to resort
to trickery, so thnt thoir employees are
mndo to work overtime without receiving any extra pny. In many factories
the girls aro not even nlfowod timo for
mails, but nre required to ont whilo
working. Almost all cotton-spinning
factories keep tlieir looms in oporatfon
lay nnd night. Night work, in which
both male and femalo operatives nre engaged together, is found most demoralizing. The methods of punishment are
equally inhumane. Thc lash is employ.

FLYING-SCHOOLS IN FRANCE
HARVARD has bad an aviation meet
nnd Columbia has an aero club.
but Franco is apparently taking
the lead in establishing and developing
actual schools of instruction in flying—
not places where inventors and builders
■nay teach the use of tlieir own machines, but real collegiate schools of
aeronautic engineering. Some of our
colleges ure intending to start courses
in aviation, and tentative Instruction
may huve begun, bat tlio first full
courso of this sort seems to have been
establishod nt the Sorboiine, nnd tho
Froneh intend evidently to take the
lead at. once in this regard. Wc translate below pnrt of on abstract in the
Rovuo Scientillque (Puris, October 15)
id' a recent lecture by Carlo Bourlot, before the International Commission of
Mathematical Instruction at Brussels.
Suid the speaker:
"We shall not mention the military
schools of C'hulais-Meudon nnd Mour-
melon le (fraud, which are quite special
in character, nor the apprentice schools
founded by various builders, solely to
train pilots and tench their pupils'how
to use their aeroplanes, sinco those have
no scientific character.
"At present, there is regularly orgnn.
ized instruction in aviatioa iu the following places in France:
"1. At the University of Paris,
where, thanks to the generous gifts of
Messrs. Deutsch, de Ta Meurtbe, and
Sukharoff, thero havo been founded a
Course of Aeronautics ut the Sorbonne,
conducted by Professor Murchis, and a
station for research aad experiment In
aviation, directed by Professor Mnu-
rain.
'2. Commandant Roche hns founded
11 School of Aeronautic Engineers, of a
private character, but In receipt of
official subvention. It receives former
pupils of tho Polytechnic School, students of the Faculty of Sciences already
licensed, und pupils admittetd to tbe
course. Tho studies lost one year aud
tbe student rocoivos on graduation, aftor examination, a diploma as Aeronautical Engineer.
"The Instruction is in part theoretical and in part purely practical and experimental.
"In closing, Mr. Bourlet oxpreeses
the hope that his country, pursuing her
noble humanitarian traditions, may con.
tinue to boar aloft the torch of progress
and to develop this wonderful new
science as she has already developed the
automobile and tho submarine, assuring a worldwide era of ponce and brotherhood. ''
HOW BRITISH OtTNS KEEP THB
PEACE
THB"powora of Europe are at present
divided into two opposing camps
represented, snvs Admiral Mahan
in thc London Dally'Mall, by tho Triple
Entente, England, France and Russia,
on tbe one hand, and the Triple Alliance,
Germany, Austria and Italy, on the
other, lhe Triple Alliance easily controls the land territory of Europe. There
iB, in fnct, nothing to prevent the Triple
Alliance from bringing tho rest of Kurope under its dominance, but the fear
uf the loss which the British navy
would cause to German commerce in a
great war. Speaking of the "mussed
land power of mid-Europe," represented by the Triple Alliance, thiB writer
observes:
'' Over agaiust lt stands no equivalent
land power, even if, iu circumstances
threatening a general conflagration,
there are elements of such in France
anil Russia, which, though iuferior, must
weigh heavily with a statesman envisaging war. But the real offset against
tho military power of tho Triple Alii-
mice is the financial resources of France
and the navy of Great Britain. Tbe
two together represent sou power in tho
scales of Europe, as Middle Kurope represents lund power. As usual, neither
stands alone, wholly separated from the
other. Tho army of France is a large
factor ln laud power; that of Great Bri.
tain one not wholly negligible; aud in
naval force Oermany now stands second
in tho world. But, despite this allowance, the broad division stands. Now,
should occasion arise, the navy of Great
Britain, if duly maintained, controls the
approaches to the German const, aud
by such control secures tbe communications of the British Islands witb the
whole work—exeept perhaps the Baltic.
This means, substantially, the suppression of German sea-borne commerce, the
extent of which is little realized. With
the world outside Europe this increased
between 1804 and 1004 by 03 per cent.,
with Europe by 08 per cout.; whereas
tho land interchange with Europe increased only 48 per ceut.
"The maintenance of this sea trade
depends upon shipping, and it is to bc
remarked that war with Groat Britniu
eliminates at once, as carriers to Germany, tho two principal mercantile marines—the BritlBh ond tho German.
France, with her entonto sympnthies and
traditiouul grievances, will not greatly
objeet to measures which will eliminate
ulso her merchant vessels, already and
otherwise sufficiently employed. Tho
United Stales has none but' coastwise
shipping, also fully employed, and is not
likely to insist strongly upon a privilege
of supplying Germany with ships. Tiiero
remains no strong naval Power to object
to the most serious repressive measures
that Oreat Britain muy undertake within the limits of .international-law, broadly interpreted."
The deficiency could not bo supplied
by tho railroad system, and tho suppression of sen communications, "total or
approximate, means now, as it always
has meant, financial disorganization,
military embarrassment, uiid . .popular
misery."   The article cuds as follows:
"It is in the interests of peace, ib
point out thnt no force iu Kurope can
so act as a deterrent from wnr, induced
by the possible nmbitioas or otherwise
inevitable tendencies of Middle Europe,
ns enn tho 118.7 of Groat Britain. The
dividing line cleft betweon the Triple
Alliance and the Triple Entente is too
plain to be ignored.' It hns been emphasised at Algcciras, in Crete, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and in other incidents
less conspicuous but equally known. Un-
der such circumstances tho ouo salvation
from war is readiness for war, based

"Admiral Mahan has onco moro res

European peace," comments the Pall
Hall Gazette (London), which proceeds
"Tho reasoned warning of Admiral

official statement made by the Germaii

clearer than ever that Oermany has uol

".No other nnvnl writer combines is
