Very Good Road Has Been Constructed by the Government
Government Road Superintendent Dun  McNisli, of   this
district, reports that  the  greut
j trunk   lino  roud,   suituble    for
! automobile driving, upon which
he has had a gang of one huu-
i dred men   working  during  the
[ summer,  hus been so far coni-
j pleted ns to permit  of autoing
through tlie Pass from Elko  to
| Crow's Nest, at tlie Alberta line
There are a few places  needing
a  little  more    work  to   make
them comfortably passable, but
the roud is open which, for the
lirst time, permits of travel by
team or auto through the  l'ass
from British Columbia to Alberta.   The Alberta roads need
but little improving to permit
of an auto trip from llosmer to
Lethbridge and all other points
on the prairie.       At Elko  the
new  trail connects    witli    the
East Kootenay   roud   system,
which embraces all points west
of here as far as Cranbrook,and
northwest to Golden.
Nelson Old Timer Dead.
Chas. H. Ink, one of the first
citizens of Nelson and foreman
of the Nelson News passed
away Tuesday afternoon at the
Kootenay Lake hospital. Mr.
Ink was stricken down about
two weeks ago with a severe
illness, which was pronounced
by his medical attendant to be
ulceration of the stomach. His
condition was critical from the
first, and Dr. Wilson deemed it
advisable to call in Dr. LeBuu
of Spokane. After consultation
un operation was decided on as
the only means of saving his
life. The operation was successfully performed and it was
only the deceased's grit and
tenacity that enabled him to
survive-as long as he did. He
made a brave struggle for life
but on Sunday he took a definite turn for the worse and his
end came peacefully without
much suffering.
Kiss Accused with Tears of Joy.
The trial of Arthur DeCoux
wus concluded before Mr. Justice Harvey and a jury of six
at Mcleod lust Friday,
September 6th. The supposed
crime was committed at Frank
in May by the accused negligently allowing a car loaded
with coal to run into and kill a
Frenchman. From the evidence
it was adduced that the accused's car was second to another,
nnd he wns suid to hnve taken
the spur, which acts as a brake,
out, thus allowing the car to
run, but as there was another
in front of the accused's car
they wore both forced to go
down the grade, and in this
wny killed the deceased. This
was all under ground in the
mine at Frank. Tbe jury
brought iu n verdict of not
guilty, nfter two hours of deliberation.
They found the accused not
guilty and added a rider to the
verdict calling upon the company for additional attention.
The jury added to theii- verdict
thnt the attention of the government of Alberta be culled to
the fact thnt unqualified men
are permitted to act in positions
where qualifications aro required by law.
There wns a scene in the
courtroom after tlie accused
was discharged. Several Frenchmen, with loving arms, kissed
the accused, and with tears of
joy he sunk on the courtroom

Cyclone at Creston.
A cyclonic windstorm at
Creston last Thursday did considerable damage, touring off
roofing, smashing windows and
destroying a barn belonging to
.lames Scott. eSo fierce was the
wind that ufter wrecking the
barn it picked up heavy timbers
weighing four hundred pounds
and carried them two hundred
yards. The Murphy boarding
house rocked and some of the
boarders were thrown out of
bed und rushed downstairs in
alarm under the impression
that an earthquakehadoccured.
The wind rose suddenly. The
heavy plate glass window of P.
Burns & Co. was shuttered nnd
all windows in the upper story
of tho Murphy house were
blown in. It is believed to bc
the first cyclonic windstorm
ever known in British Colombia.

"Please help a blind man," said a fellow with green goggles, as he held a tin cup toward
the line of people issuing from the Union Depot,
"I always help the blind," said one of two young men who were passing, and he stopped
and took out a five-dollar bill; "can you get a  quarter out of this?"
"I guess so," saiel the blind man, fishing out a handful of change and counting out four
elollars and seventy-live cents.
" Well, .lohn." said the benevolent young man's companion, as they walkwed ou, "you're
a bigger I'ceccl than  I took you to be."
-' Am  I V ' said .lohn.
"Yes. vim nre; that fellow's no more blind than 1 am. How could he tell that was a five-
dollar bill?" '
"Blamed if 1 know." said John, innocently; "but he must be mighty near-sighted not to
see that it was a counterfeit."
There' are none so blind as those who will  not see.

From a consideration eef the building
atatistics of twenty-five representative
Canadian cities, it is very evident that
the Dominiou is in nu way likely to lose
her reputation fur structural development, says Construction, of Toronto, iu
its .luly issue. The figures for the
month of May, 1910, have attained a
situation fur above that for the same
period last year, thus establishing a new
record for that month. Although Canadians have ever been sanguine as to
the development of this country, yet the
figures presented serve as a substantiation thereof, and are a source of the
greatest, satisfaction, especially when,
from a closer knowledge of the building
operations iu progress, it is known that
none of these representative towns have
been experiencing what is generally understood by the word "boom," but are
passing through a period of steady but
phenomenal material development,
Fifty per cent, is the remarkable increase of May, 1910, over May, 1909,
in value of buildings for which permits
were issued in the twenty-five cities
listed, 'this represents an increase of
e$3,77H, 172. a very substantial amount
considering that for Muy last year, permits were issued to the value of $7,545,-
loti; and these statistics have been compiled only for the cities given, so as to
represent fairly the condition which prevails throughout the different provinces.
Of course, there are scores of -smaller
towns ami cities which would show increases of like or even greater proportions, so that aa adequate idea eif the
aggregate building operations through
out Canada can in no wise lie obtained
from the list. However, the percentage
gain is representative, and accurately
expresses the strides which are being
As regards the cities of Ontario whose
figures are given, a glance shows that
*ix of thom have had very material increases. Toronto lends in Ontario, but
has had to take second place in the
honors of the Dominion, being outclassed by Winnipeg. Toronto shows practically the same total us for May last
year, which is highly commendable,
when the fact is considered that build
ers hesitate to apply for permits on
Recount of the comparative scarcity of
brick. This latter fact holds iu some of
the other cities in Ontario and also in
many cities ia the rest eif the provinces,
notably in the West. Fort William
and Port Arthur show exceptionally
creditable lucreases of 100 per cent, and
173 per cent., as also do Hamilton and
Peterborough, with the heavy gains of
140 and 100 per cent., respectively. Ottawa is ahead by three and Stratford
by four per cent., while. St. Thomas also
comes out to the good with a slight increase, Brantford, Loudon and Windsor show small decreases, owing to the
fact that several important structures
came under the Iigures of last May.
Montreal, as usual, is prominent with a
total of $1,709,200, thereby taking third
place; an increase eif of per cent, iu one
year is most commendable for a city
where building last May amounted to
$1,107,790. St. .lohn. N'.k, and Sydney.
N.S., exhibit a lend of 27 per cent, and
19 per cent, respectively over previous
figures, which is most noteworthy, to
say the least. Halifax, however, has
not yet reasserted itself, the loss tbere
noted being 84 per cent.
Considering the more western provinces, the extensive operations being
carried on in Manitoba, Saskatchewan.
Alberta and Hritish Columbia, present a
fair idea of the progress there, anil

tremendous expansion which the country is undergoing, Winnipeg lends all
other Canadian cities, leaving Toronto
its closest, competitor, a good lap behind. It exhibits a building list, valued
at $2,091,500, a gain of 82 per cent.
Brandon ably supports Winnipeg in upholding the honor of the province of
Manitoba, as permits for buildings were
issued aggregating $224,590, as against
$88,i!-5, an improvement of 154 per
cent. Saskatchewan may well bo proud
of the astounding figures seat in by
Moose Jaw, Saskatoon uud Regina,
gains of 705, 703, and 3:10 per cent, being noted iu the order named. Saskatoon with a list of structures for May

An Amusing Reminiscence of the Famous War Correspondent's Lecture
Tour  in  Canada Some
Years Ago
war correspondent, who has declared his intent ion of settling in
the Canadian West, was ou a lecturing
tour through Canada some half dozen
years ago. Among the places ia which
Villiers was billed to speak wns u west-
em Ontario city in which lectures are
notoriously ill-attended. So much is
this the case that the manager of flic
theatre where Villier's talk was to he
given did not think it worth while tn
advertise his coming at all extensively.
Villiers came. The local newspapers
recognized the bigness of the man, and
gave him a couple of columns of space.
These papers, however, did not appear
until the evening of his lecture—tun
late to bring him an audience. When
tne distinguished visiter came ecu the
platform, there were about one dozen
ainl a half people in the badly-heated
house. Most of them hnel e'cellie in ecu
passes. The lecturer looked over his
audience with some surprise, but began
his talk without comment, and carried
it through to the end without abbreviation, but also, it must be said, without
marked enthusiasm.
The latter quality he reserved for a
little extra speech which was not on the
programme. In it he delineated in cun
cise but cutting; terms the character nf
that particular theatre manager, who
hud neglected to advertise his coming.
The audience, which had apphiuded
feebly throughout the regular lecture,
was moved to still more marked appre
cintiuii.' The thirty-six hands heal as
oue, as Mr. Villiers continued to cent
line his opinion of the manager, who
was squirming uncomfortably in the
doorway. And as the audience dispersed, its members looked in vain for the
usual form at the exit. The manager
had lied. Mr.'Villiers' "mast" is still
remembered in that Ontario town us

Lord of the German legions. This uni
venal military service* has been a great
obstacle tu the Socialist movement.,
inasmuch as the fundamental principles
uf army discipline are entirely incom
patible with the fundamental principles
of Socialism. Moreover, the army is the
bulwark uf the Empire, and the fast line
of defence against the growing Socialist
A revolutionary change in the form
uf government and iu the order of society such as is demanded and propagated by the Socialist party can never
take place so lung as the army remains
true anel loyal to the reigning Emperor.
The Socialists have long since realized
that their movement is doomed to failure until they can permeate the army
with revolutionary sentiment.
Hut to propagate Socialism or anti-
military ideas ur seditious principles
among flu. uniformed soldiers of the
Kaiser is nut merely nn offence against
the laws uf the hind, but constitutes
the crime nf high treason, so that every
Socialist agitator who tried tn preach
Socialism tee soldiers would lind himself
thrust Into cine nf Ihe Imperial prisuns
fur the remainder eef his life.

Proper Lubrication
For gasolene and kerosene engines
Gks Engine Oil
Is the only oil you need.
It provides perfeet lubrication under high temperatures without appreciable carbon deposits on
rings or cylinders, and is
equally good for the external bearings.
Capitol Cylinder Oil
delivers more power, and makes the engine
run better and longer with less wear and tear,
because its friction-reducing properties are
exactly fitted to thc requirements ot steam
traction engines and steam plants.
Mica. Axle Grease
makes the wheel as nearly frictionle.-s as possible and reduces the wear on axle and box.
It ends axle troubles, saves energy in the
horse, and when used on axles ot traction
engines economizes fuel and power.
Granite Harvester Oil
insures better work from the new machine
and lengthens the life of the old. Whenever bearings are loose or boxes worn it
takes up the play and acts like a cushion.
Changes or weather do not affect it.

Embroidery for ladies and children's dresses, coats, parts

As to footgear the Knglish woman this year has blossomed
forth in very smart low shoes aud colored stockings. Some
of the mummy dresses being very short, feet and ankles are
exposed to public view, so sombre black hosiery has been
more or less discarded and scarlet, old rose, aeroplane blue,
smoke gray and even white stockings aro worn.
Of course, the really smart thing is to match the frock
exactly in hosiery and then wear pumps with huge black
bows, but some Knglish women go their French sisters one
better and exhibit remarkable contrasts,
Hand-painted stockings, slippers and gloves from France
are much iu favor. At several smart weddings recently the
brides have worn satin slippers edged with Valenciennes
lace on tlie toes of which were painted sprays ol' myrtle or
clusters of orange blossoms, the same design being carried
out on the gloves.
The Parisian alwnys bravely defies convention iu regard
to the blending of colors and mates purples aud reds, and
yellows and pinks with sometimes beautiful effects which
are very becoming to her creamy pallor. The English woman
has made up her mind to do the same, and this season's
gowns show French color schemes which may or may not suit
her very different style.
As for jewelry, the Knglish woman lias gone gem mad. At
the recent courts, at race meetings, small dinners and luncheons and bridge parties sftperb jewelry has been ia evidence.
Of course, at the courts this is not extraordinary, as wheu
the king and queen receive all those invited make themselves
as resplendent as possible; but this year it was noticed that
the display of precious stones was more magnificent than
ever, while indoors with morning gowns and outdoors with
rich furs a rich profusion of jewelry was worn.
Long earrings still have a certain prestige. They seem to
go with mummy dresses and turban coiffures. Cameos, discarded since early Victorian days, havo come back. A
cameo brooch can be of shell or the more costly onyx, and it
can have belonged to a maternal grandparent or have been
recently purchased, but it must be present iu some form.
Pendants of tueso ornaments in their original massive and
florid settings are seen, while impossibly large cameos are set
in bonbon boxes aud hung from neck chains or waistbands.
Bangles are numerous iu all styles, from plain gold to gem
starred, and dozens arc worn ou each wrist.
It  is always said, of course, that lliis craze for jewelry
was imported by the American contingent in London, but  if]
it was the  English  woman has certainly adopted it with asl
much facility as she  has recently  adopted  the  bizarre audi
extreme  French   styles  which   a   few years  ago   would   have

Drapery effects are progressing iu dressy costumes, taking
the form of real or simulated tunics, long full draperies, panniers, searflike folds, etc.
Black and white are attractively combined in many of
lhe new jabot effects, the black usually taking the form of
satin pipings, jet buttons aud tiny buckles.
Roman aud Italian blankets are used partly as a decora
tion and partly as a necessity. They are obtainable in college colors. A girl having a blanket kimono last year while
at college said it proved the most useful article she had.
Often while studying the room would not be warm and she
found the big kimono was cosy and warm, so she often donned it wheu studying.
Every girl likes in wear thin lingerie waists, and only

And yet, if a girl will give time to tlie task, such waist

Imped that there are at least two chests of drawers in tho'
room so that plenty of space can be set apart for the boxes
containing all the necessary accessories—collars, belts, veils,
Stockings, gloves, ribbons, handkerchiefs, etc. etc.. all of
which are sn important to the girl who delights in being as
well gowned ub her allowance will permit.
It' there is not sutlicient space in the Uigb chcsl of drawers

are fashioned wilh boxes of varied size, one large enough

it is recommended that the feet be massaged carefully at

Few women are aware that one of tlie best remedies for
the teeth is common baking powder. It is used like any tooth
powder, on a wet tooth brush. Be careful to scrub well inside the mouth, especially at tlie back. The taste of the
soda is unpleasant at first, but great improvement can at
once be noticed on the teeth.
Tower to see things clearly at a distance is impaired by
devoting the eyes too greatly to reading or other pursuits in
which the objects seen are close to the eyes. All persons who
use their sight in this way should try to counteract the effect
by striving to distinguish distant objects. Neither in short
sight nor long sight is there of necessity any inferiority of
the eye tissues. The fault is solely iu the shape of the organs, which changes alter the fncuss'yig power. Too much
reading presses the eye out  of shape.
THE United States has lately beeu regaling the world with
an orgy of crime.
Because the negro Johnson won the fight in Nevada,
race riots have broken out all over the country, with the
result tliat twenty persons, mostly negroes, have been murdered and hundreds have been injured, and the massacre is by
no means over.
The United States at this stage is still like a powder
magazine on lire—ami cool heads are needed to prevent a
great explosion. As lias been shown, there is no limit to
which the whites will not go if once started, and the negroes,
armed and banded together in secret societies for self-protection, are most likely to retaliate.
What has brought about this violent race hatred?
The trouble is Ihat the whites, instead of proving their
superiority over the negro by ruling him with intelligence
ami impartial justice, have brutalized and humiliated him
until the negro is on the verge of revolt.
If the negro protests he is lynched.

ourselves on tne mad for the arena of

superstitions cannot be traced. Many
of them have been handed down freem
father to sou for a great number of
years, with a touch probably added here
and there, turning a comparatively or
dlnary story iuto a weird and mysterious legend.
Very likely (says the Loudon Qlobe),
the seamen's isolation from outside influences, nud the weeks aud mouths
spent afloat with only his mates for
company, served to foster superstitious
notions in the days of sailing vessels;
while the general spread of knowledge
works but slowly in these occult mutters, concerning which .luck is peculiarly
unreasoning. The Finn is the most
superstitious of all sailors. There are
many of this race who still believe in
the ominous portent of the phantom

lights which are ghost spirits hovering

Fill the sailor's mind with murium ings.
And speak to hiin of wrecks.
A story is tohl eef a brigaiitiue which
numbered several extremely supersti
tious men among her crew. One night
when there was uo moon, nnd a slight
ground-swell was running, the watch,
who happened to bo the must superstitious of them all, heard an uncart lily
wailing coming apparently from the
very surface of the sea. The mate and
the helmsman also heard it. but the
former lucked imagiuation, and although
In* wus certainly interested, he nearly
blew the watch's head eelf when lie ven
lined to suggest mermaids. The helms
man didn't feel quite happy, but he had
lo slick to the wheel. The watch was
pule with terror, but he kept silence uw
ing to the mate's complimentary references to Ilis courage and abilities. Slowly the sound began to move along the
Tip's side, becoming more uud more
agonized us it approached. This annoy
the* mate, and going tee the siele* of
[the vessel he wailed until he had located
lhe sound, and then emptied n bucket
of water over tho rail. There was a
gasp, anel then 'lend silence, and colli
ing more was heard that  night.
When the watch went nil' duty ho,
of course, gave n detailed and lurid nc
cieiint of tin* incident to his shipmates,
who listeneil, as he thought, ill awe'ei
silence, and then called mi one of the
audience for his version of the1 mutter.
This mini, u Tynesiiler. who dearly loved
a juke, ccncl had nee respect ut all for
hoary superstitions, had conspired with
his fellows to play ii trick on the watch.
On the night in question he hud crop!
over the bows without a sound, carrying
with him the ship's cat, secured i
bug. Crouching under the1 stays, t
joker let the cut's head cent cef the bag
which lie tied around tl
sistiblc, and he whispered to us excitedly that the door of the side furthest
away from the station would not be toe>-
sccmely fastened when the train started.
"If we should take advantage of that

Coral Fink Silk Gown with Guipure Lace
quisitcly soft und becoming that surely nothing else could be
selected, and the wide range of colors thut is provided to
choose from permits—in fact, demands—that what is becoming must decide the question,
"A grey taffeta silk gown with black laee flounces and
black velvet ribbon''—at once is brought to the remembrance
the portraits of lifty years ago—the gentlewoman in her
flounced taffeta, with the flounces of rare thread luce or taffeta and the bands of black velvet ribbon heading each
flounce and outlining the bertha or lichu. Today's rendering
of the same style is much the same. The skirt is narrower,
the flounces are not so full, but that the same model served
as inspiration cannot be questioned.
Gray, peach color, corn color, ashes of roses, all old iash-
ioned colors, are iu style, uud the Chantilly laces that were
used for trimming in the days gone by are once again iu high
favor, lint the dressmaking ot today is a far more subtle ait,
and more attention is paid to the individual, so that if u too
full skirt is hopelessly iiubecoining the width is most cleverly
manipulated and different lines are secured by some marvelous manipulation of the material. If the baud of velvel
heading each flounce makes too broad an effect, then bows or
rosettes of velvet are added to break the line. The luce of
the flounces ic- most carefully adjusted, made neither too
scant nor too full, and such a transformation as can be and
is wrought by these touches of a skilled hand it is almost impossible to realize.
A simple dinner gowu, also possible for theatre and restaurant, is a quaint model made up in dark pink tatl'eta. Wows
of pull's or wide shirred bands trim the lower part af the skirt,
while (lie upper part and the body of the waist is of fold after
fold of the silk drawn tight around the figure, Around the
square cut neck is the softening of u flat baud of guipure lace,
while there can be, if desired, bands of the same lace in place
of the shirred bands or just above the pull's, but there is uo
other trimming on the gown. "Quaint," '*picturesque, "old
fashioned" are some of the adjectives applied to this model,
which is certainly radically different from any of last season's designs. Taffeta silk evening gowns are evidently to
be popular this summer, lor another model that has met with
favor is a pale blue one with flat bauds of guipure lace edged
with narrow Valenciennes ruchiug. The skirt is full and
wide, gathered into the belt; the waist is pointed back and
front, fits tight to the ligure, and the trimming consists of a
lichu uf the silk trimmed with the ruchiug of Valencienues
to match the skirt, A white ttill'eta on the same model, with
bands of shirred chill'on and clusters of tiny pink roses, is
also becoming and effective.
Crepe de chine and crepon are two materials that for a
short time have been relegated to the background. Crepoif,
indeed, has not been fashionable for a long time, und, as yet
e'tinout be counted as among popular fabrics, but it is to be
noticed iu many of the very latest model gowns. Crepe de
chine never entirely retires from the 13el,1 of popular approval,
for it has more to recommend it than almust any fabric that
is known. Por summer the lighter weights are delightfully
comfortable', even in the hottest weather; it cleans and even
launders satisfactorily, and, while delightfully soft and supple
it still has enough firmness to enable it to be made into skirt
and coat, costumes, us well as the Empire gown. There are
in crepe de chine many different weaves nnd textures, every
color of the rainbow uud many uot associated with it, and
there is a dull and a bright linisn, so surely any woman can
lind what she likes. The satin finish crepe de chine is diHi-
ciit to distinguish at first glance from the Liberty satin—that
is iu some of the qualities—but it is the fashion to combine
the two, and then the poiuts of contrast are easily discernible.
Most practical for summer is the nattier blue crepe de chine
ur silk crepon, made simply and trimmed either with lace or
with satin the same shade. The popular model for this style
ui gowu is extremely simple, but so smart as to make it
noticeable in a group of more elaborate and complicated costumes. The skirt is quite unlike any of the models yet exhibited, narrow, but not aggressively scant, with only a bias
fold at the hem; the waist is loose, on the blouse order, and
yet does not conceal uny good lines of the figure, but it is
very plain and very simple. It cun be made in any color and
will look well, while it cun be elaborated upon if so desired
by tIu* addition of embroidered or lace bands.
It is extremely difficult as the season advances to dictate
authoritatively us to whnt shall or shall not, be worn. Not
only customers but elress makers und designers are apparently
groping in the dark trying to find some one fashion that can
be pronounced the one and only. The leading dressmakers
and tailors speak firmly about the return of the full skirt
and take orders galore for the narrowest skirt that can lie
made. The waist line must be normal, and, again, gowns
gnlore are turned out with the waist line inches higher than
was ever known in normal anatomy. Heavily trimmed skirts
cue* obligatory and broken lines a feature of the very latest
designs, so will say an authority on dress who in the same
breath counsels the purchase of a most costly evening gown
whose great beauty lies in the unbroken lines that define to
perfection every line of the figure. Most generally unbecoming are a majority of the present day styles, so perhaps it is
the instinct of the true artist designer warring with her sense
of allegiance to Dame Fashion that makes it all so complicated a pfoblein.
.      e»      .
A elisagreable feature of the newest gown is the length;
nu all round skirt, as it is called, must more than touch the
ground all around, und be a trifle longer at the back. High
heeled slippers are positively essential with these skirts, aud
still more essential is the rehearsing of how to walk in them.
The satin or silk lining of the skirt is so close that it has to
lie pulled down after the gown is put on to prevent any
minifies or folds, for they would show through the double or
triple thickness of any of the transparent materials or even
under a foulard or satin. The lining does not reach to the
ground, but is finished wilh scant ruffles of inousseliue de soie
or heavy chiffon. It is not fashionable to have a drop skirt
for a serge or cloth costume and even the separate silk skirt
is consieS'ied unnecessary, but a compromise has been insisted
upon and obtained by a lining of satin or soft finish silk made
in with the material.   This gives a softness and finish that is
far more satisfactory than if tho rough fabric is unlined, and
at the same time takes far less room than even the most
scant of separate skirts.
Another of the noticeable freaks of fashion this season is
the skirt with the upper part tightly drawn back around the
hips ami the lower part of the skirt apparently much wider
than with the narrow straight skirt.
This is an old time model revived to the despair of those
women who. still young enough to enjeey smart clothes, bave
I a distinct and painful remembrance of the days of their girl
I hood wheu this same style was fashionable.' In those uayc-
j the skirls were much wider around the lower part, so perhaps
in the eyes of the world dressmakers who make a science of
dress do know better how to attack the problem and will
j know- how to drape materials in such wise that the ligure will
not be entirely disfigured.
a       fee       .
Finishing the skirt with a band or fold of silk or satin is
very fashionable this summer and the style has much that is
practical about it. Often a pattern robe', and there are good
bargains in the pattern robes, of cloth, linen, lace or chiffon
is too short in front and at the sides to give what is demand
ed of this season's skirts, that they shall not only touch the
ground all the way, but lie on the'ground. It is a most ex
triivngaiit style, but none the less is it followed, so that the
fold or band at the edge of the lace ou a thin fabric is ol
great service, as it prevents the gown wearing out too
All white is not at the moment so fashionable as the contrast of colors, and the thin white gowns are finished with
a fold or baud of pink, blue or yellow satin, unb'ss one eif
the figured broe-ho elesign is preferred, and these broche or
cushmere colorings are so attractive as to be Immensely popu
lar. The belt and any trimming on the waist matches the
finish of the skirt, uuiess for practical reasons it is decided
to finish the skirt with a band of white; theu the belt can bc
of any color or design, and so many different effects can be
gained by wearing the different belts that oue gown .Iocs
duty for two or three.
Separate waists are fast becoming as necessary to comfort
as the lingerie shirt waists that fashion has at last succeeded
iu relegating to tlie background. They must match the costume in color, and chiffon cloth, marquisette, lace and all kinds
of net are now far smarter than silk, satin or crepe de chine.
These waists, some quite on the jumper order, are made over
a lining of wliitc* net or lace and are dainty and becoming.
When economy has to lee observeu one good fitting plain waist
of net or lace can serve as foundation for two or more of the
dark chiffon jumpers, which, cut in one piece with the kinionc
sleeve, do not require to be fastened iu at the seams of the
inside  waist.

Tlie present fashion of iin- loosely fitting waist is not su
easy as it seems. The fulness nt tue sides must be most carefully attended to, 90 that the figure will not look too thick
above the waist line; the kimono sleeve and the waist and
sleeve in one have to be carefully cut so that the loose, wide
armhole be not. placed too low, for ihat gives a most unbecoming appearance. If tin- waist be made of thin lace or
net then there must, be a veiling or interlining of chiffon
between the materia) and the lining, lmt this interlining must
not be too full or again the much dreaded bulkiness will give
the bad lines. A nd this warning is equally applicable to
slight and to stout figures, for with the inner lining too full
the lines of the waist are -it once thrown out of proportion
in a most noticeable manner and all smart effect is lost.
If there is a fichu or bertha as a finish to the waist it is
more becoming when laid in soft folds; or is quite plain with
only a narrow fringe as a finish. If there be too much material in the fichu it is never becoming, and if too wide a
fringe or ruffle of lnce be used for the 1 rimming the same
lack of smartness will be most noticeable.

The Russian government once undertook a deal in junk to its profit. It was
just after the Crimean war, when for
months old iron, shot and shell wen-
picked up round Sebastopol. A regular
trade iu tllis junk sprang up, thousands

the government as such a good one that
it intervened between buyers and sellers, imposing a ta.\ of about ten cents

that the imperial government profited

N the death of William Sydney Porter, known to the reading public
by his pen name, "O, Henry,''
American literature has lost one of the
ablest modern masters of the short
story. He had the art of dramatic con
struct ion and vh id narrative, a line
and delicate humor, and a broad, kindly, tolerant knowledge of human nature,
that won the friendship of all who read
his work.
Mr. Porter was born in I.M17 at
Greensboro, North Carolina. Several of
his ancestors had been Governors of
that State. Owing to delicate health
he never went to college. lie spent
nearly three years ou a cattle-ranch in
Texas, and wheu his health was re-established got work as a reporter.on the
Houston Post at lifteen dollars a week,
which after a month was raised to
$25. From the beginning he displayed
the true instinct of the teller of tales.
Whatever he wrote became interesting
— not because the thing had happened,
but, because of his way of describing
how and why it happened. About all
his training consisted in the reading of
the Knglish clashes.
Presently young Porter bought a
weekly paper, called it the Rolling Stone
and wrote most of the matter that ap
peared in it. Hut he fouud publishing
lame, and after a year sold out and
went to Central America to raise bananas. They would not grow for hint,

Besides tlio python there was on

did not take the python long to come
