Continued from last week.
11 was more tnnn a pleasant dinner, for Lady Fanworthy made it. a
charmiog one. In -spile of himself
Julian was drawn within the circle
of the spell of her brilliant eyes, and
the clear, low voico In which sbo
said the wittiest things with the air
of an innocent girl,
"We won't let. you go all nlone to
that Madame Tussaud of a drawiiig-
room, Lady Fanworthy," Vano snid
when the dessert wns over. "We'll
go into the muatc-room. Julian hero
is a Tip-top performer, Send the
coffeo in there, please, will yon,
Prance? You won't mind our cigarettes, I know,  Lndy Fanworthy."
"Not if you give tno one for myself,"  she said.
Vano led her, with a certain courtesy which he did not usually display, to tbe easiest of the chairs,
and, when the cigarettes were smoked, took Julian by the arms and
gently pushed hiin towards the
"Sing us that thing you sang to
mo at your rooms, will you?" ho
said; nnd lie went and seated himself
ln a low chair beside Lady Fan-
worthy's, and with his arms folded
behind his head listened with half
closed eyes; he wns back on the island again, bo sure.
Julian sang three songs in response
to Lord Fanwortby's eager murmur
of admiration nnd delight and Vane's
almost proprietorial "Go on Julian!"
The light from the shaded candles
fell full on the performer's dark face,
and Lady Fanworthy watched it
"Julian's a regular nightingale,
isn't he?" said Vano in a low voice.
"Isn't it a lioe voice?"
The old lady withdrew her eyes
"Yes," she snid "He is very good
looking, and has a fine voice, and
quite pretty manners. Did you ever
see the black panther at tho Zoo,
Vano stored at her,   then laughed.
"The  black     panther    when   it    is
asleep,   or has just been fed and   is
purring and licking itself."
Vano colored with moinentnry annoyance; then ho laughed ngnin.
'This is tho first time I have ever
known you to be—unjust and hard,"
he said in a low voice.
ine oriiunnt eyes regarded him
steadily, gravely.
'IHow do you know that I am—unjust and hard now?" sbe asked, with
a slight Imitation of his voice.
Vano moved with a gesture of impatience and deprecation.
1'IIe's too good a follow, is Julian,
to be compared to a tiger," he said.
"Panther, I said," retorted Lady
Fanworthy, sweetly. "And a black
ono. Thank you so very much, Mr.
Shore. Y'ou have a charming voice
charming. Godfrey, we must not rob
these young people of their beauty
sleep; it is late."
Lord Fanworthy was glowing all
over with satisfaction as they drove
"Splendid thing for tho county,
Vane's succession. I'll get bim to
take tho hounds! And I say, Emily,
what a delightful young fellow this
Julian Shore is, eh?"
"Delightful," responded Lady Fan-
worthy; but as she spoke she looked
at her radiant husband with the tender pity with which the clever wifo
tolerates the spouse whom she loves
notwithstanding bis duller intelligence.
"Thero go the happiest pair I ever
met," remarked Vane, ns the two
men sat in their smoking jackets in
the billiard roam.
"They seem devoted to each other," said Julian. "I suppose the
man who said that marriages were
made ln Heaven must have had such
a couple in bis mind."
"Marriages are made in Heaven,
but they smuggle a very fair counterfeit from quite another place,"
observed Vane, absently. "How is it
you never married, Julian?" As tlie
question left his lips he would huve
liko to have checked it, for the subject was a sore one for him; but tbe
question was asked, and lio waited
for the answer,
Julian knocked Iho ash from the
cigarette and looked before him under his dropping lids.
"I don't know," ho replied, as if
he himself were wondering. "I suppose It ls bocauso I havo never seen
tho woman 1 wanted to mako iny
"You hnvo never been in—love?"
asked Vnne, though ho could have
kicked himself for the bnnulily of tbo
"No,"   said   Julian,   after   another
pause.   "No, I supposa not!"
Vano laughed grimly.
"Yon suppose not," ho said.    "You
certainly have   not,   or you'd    havo
known it.   Ded?   Right I"
Julian went to bis room, but it
was so.no time boforo ho went to bed.
It wn.i a moonlight night, and he
leaned against the window und looked at, tho park, and the hills boyoud,
tho land that represented to some
small extent tho vast wealth into
which his cousin bad como; looked ut
it with an expression in his eyes
which, if sho could havo seen it,
would havo justified Lady Fan-
worthy's comparison,
- But it wns not tho blnck panther
asleep, or placidly satisfied and purring. There was n hungry, real less
look in tho dark eyes, and the white,
even toeth gleamed as the lips closed
and unclosed with a nervous movement.
They stayed threo days at the
Court, and dining tho whole of that
time Vane treated Julian as the heir
and "did him honor," as tlie significant old phrase bus It; so Unit lie
servants, oven Mr. Holland, caine to
regard Mr. Julian Shore us almost
of equal Importance to the carl hini-
llcforo they storied to return to
London, Julian gnve orders for tho
cleaning nnd doing up of the Wizard's Room .ind, at Vane's suggestion, oven Instructed a mason to alter tho fireplace.
They reached London just beforo
tea-tlmo, and Vano suddenly remembering his _ron_ise to  Judith Orme,
"Engaged this afternoon, Julian?'"
Julian replied iu the negative.
"Well, then, come with me to call
on a lady,  will you?"
It would be as well, if he wore
going to call on Judith, that he
should make the visit as conventional and void of significance as possible by taking a friend with him.
A year ago tho proposal of a tete-a-
tete with Judith Orine would havo
set his heart beating; but now—
Thero is safety in numbers, though
il bo only two.
"Who is it?" asked Julian.
"Miss Ormo," replied Vane.
"Tho Miss Ormo?"
Vano nodded. "The very Miss
Ormo," ho assented. You know her?"
"No; I have not even seen her,"
said Julian; "but, of course, I havo
heard of her;  who hasn't?"
"Who, indeed?" said Vane, drily.
A neat maid-servant admitted them
and took them upstairs.
Judith was seated at the piano,
but at the sound of Vane's name—ho
had not given Julian's—she rose
quickly. But at sight of Julinn she
paused in her advance and tho color
of resentment roso to her beautiful
face. It was there only for an instant, the next she camo forward
with outstretched hand, her sapphire
eyes smiling, her lips hnlf parted.
"How do you do, Lord Lesborough? Did you meet my father? Ho
has only just gone out. I'm so sorry!"
"I've brought my cousin, Mr. Julian Shore," said Vano.
Tho smilo shone on him, and her
hand went out to him, and as Julian took it, ho drew a long breath
nnd raised bis lids slowly, as a man
does who is trying to hide somo

What had happened to him? A moment or two ago, before bo had entered tho room, he had been master
of himself, sole possessor of his soul.
And now. His dark eyes sought tho
lovely face, and all the world seemed
to stand still, as if. it wero gazing
with him and listening with him to
the exquisite voice, so low and sweet,
so full of music, so sad, and yet
with a Bubtle suggestion of tenderness and passion.
He throw his head up as if he were
trying to throw off the impression,
the spell, under which he had fallen
as suddenly, as helplessly as if he
bad been mesmerized.

She turned her eyes to Julian and
smiled, and ho felt a thrill, tho
thrill of a sudden passion which
sways a man as a reed is swayed by
the wind, tho passion against whoso
tyranny the strongest man is as
weak as the veriest babe. Unconsciously ho moistened his lips with
his tonguo for tho power of speech

"My first visit," ho said, scarcely

Nina sighed woefully.

Undor a Fly's Wins.
One of the Nuremberg toy—alters Inclosed ln a cherry stone which was exhibited at the French Crystal palace a
plan of Sevastopol, a railway station
and the "Messiah" of Klopstock. In
more remote times nn account ls given
af an Ivory chariot, constructed by
Mermecldes, which was so small that a
ay could cover it with his wing; also a
ship of the same material which could
Ue hidden under the wing of a bee.
Pliny, tqo, tells us tbat Homer's
"Iliad," with Its 15,000 verses, was
written In so small a space as to be
contained In a nutshell, while Elian
mentions an artist who wrote a distich lu letters of gold which he inclosed
In the rind of a kernel of corn. But the
Harleiu manuscript mentions a greatei
curiosity than any of llie above, it being nothing more or less than the Bible
written by one Peter Bales, a chancery
clerk, in so small a book that lt could
be Inclosed In the shell of an English

"I hope," said the woman who was
ordering a pair of slippers made of
flowered satin, "tbat you will tell your
workman to wash his hands before he
begins to make these up."
"Wash his hands!" repeated the clerk.
"Wby, madam, be never will touch
these with his bare bands!"
Then the clerk explained that all
workmen employed In making slippers
of light colors worked with white
gloves on.
"Try to keep them clean!" he continued. "I .should say they did. They
try' so hard that they change tbelr
white gloves three times a day." Which
ls not so fantastic as it may seem, for
lf a shoemaker soils material of this
kind the expense to him of replacing
the material, to say nothing of the loss
of his time, makes it worth his while
to work ln gloves and keep them clean

The Smelt.
It Is tbo opinion of the true gourmet
that of all marine pan fish there Is none
to compare with the smelt (Osmerus
mordax). Tbls primary rauk Is Its own.
by reason of its delicacy and delicious
flavor, and when fried a light brown In
very flno breadcrumbs und served with
molted butter thure Is none that disputes Its pre-eminence. Ms delightful
flavor, however, as well ns Its peculiar
odor, ls evanescent. Llko the mackerel,
It cannot be too fresh. It Is from Its
odor that tho smelt derives not only Its
familiar but Latin name, an odor so aggressive of sliced cucumbers that If Its
presence be manifested only to the
sense of smell people are often deluded
Into such supposition. This odor Is not
marked eicept In the freshly caught
fish and disappears lu tho cooking, giving place, however, to a fitting resurrection of the smelt to an olfactory
sense still more savory and delightful.

"Rule Britannia" is usually credited

Substantiated by Sworn Statements.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are not a
patent medicine, but the prescription
of a physician, placed on salo with
full directions lor use under n trade
mark that is a irtiarantee . of their
genuineness to every purchaser. Thoy
contain no stimulant, opiate or narcotic, and while they have cured
thousands have never injured anybody. To show that cures affected
by this remedy are really permanent
and lasting we recently investigated
the case of llr. Frank A. Means, oi
Reedsville, Mifflin County, Pa. Mr.
Moans lias been an older in the
Reedsville Presbyterian ohuroh lot
many yenrs, has served three years
as county commissioner and as school
director for nine years. Ho wos afflicted with creeping paralysis, losing
the entire use of tho lower half of his
body, and for a year was a helpless
invalid, confined to llis bod with no
power or feeling in either leg, and
physicians liad given him up as hopeless. Mr. Means was cured by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills und his testimonial was printed livo years ago as
"I had the grip for four winters
and as a result iny nerves broke
down. 1 lost the entire use of tlie
lower half of my body. My stomach,
liver, kidneys, heart and head were
never affected, but the paralyzed condition of tho lower part ol the body
affected my bladder and bowels. For
a wholo year J lay in bed perfectly
helpless with no power in either limb
ami the feeling gone so that 1
couldn't feel a pin run into my legs
at all. 1 couldn't turn over in bed
without help. To move nie a pulley
was rigged up on tho ceiling and a
windlass on tlie floor.
Dining two years nf my affliction
I hud six different doctors, but none
ol them guve mo nny relief. A specialist from Philadelphia treated me
for three months hut ho was of no
benefit to inc. These doctors . gave
me up and suid it was only a ijuos-
tion of a few weeks with nie as noth-
tuoro could bo done. After tne
physicians had given 1110 up, a friend
sent me a pamphlet, containing
statements of two men who had been
afflicted something liko me and who
had been cured by the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. 1 began taking
them nt once and although my improvement was slow it was certain.
Now I can walk most of tho time
without a cane and everybody around
here thinks it is a miracle that I can

certainly been a God-send to me.

who asked me if it was true that 1
had been cured hy Dr. Williams'

my caso so that others may find relief ns I. have done."

A Series of Articles Describing their Lives, their Alms
and their Influence.
Editor  of  the Times,  Brandon,   Man.
The causes that influence a mau in
the selection of his life occupation
are many and various. Personal Inclination is often neutralized by many
Other considerations of 'ininieiliute economic necessity, hut, in the main,
a man's occupation resembles liis
character, in that it is the product of
heredity, education and environment.
There 'is in humankind an insensible,
but well nigh irresistible, tendency to
keep on doing the things with which
one has long been identified or associated. "The nature becomes subdued to what it works in, like the
dyer's hand", as Shakespeare noted
centuries ago, and it takes strong influences to force a break-away from
Ideas, ideals and conditions and habits of life and work, with which a man
has for years been closely connected.
The unwisdom and the increased
risks assumed by those determined
to make a change in their modes of
life or conditions of livelihood have
long since become proverbial. "Let
the shoemaker stick to his last." says
the homely English proverb, und human experience ls strewn thick wilh
the wrecks of once promising and
successful careers, clearly traceable
to the neglect or defiance of this elementary business principle. The
cases of men making a marked success of totally new occupations entered on, in or afior middle life are
rare. Western Canadian journalism
can show some examples, but the overwhelming bum of evidence points
In the other direction.
In tho case oi un established bttsi-
noss, the chances are strong that
some member of the proprietor's family will bo trained and equipped so as
to carry lt on In the event of the
death or retirement of the owner. Every city has Its examples of families
that for generations have been in the
same business or profession. And,
as there have been generations of
lawyers, and merehanis and divines,
so there have been generations of
newspaper men. The mantle of the
father has fallen on the son, and the
traditions of policy have thereby persisted through many years.
Western Canadian journalism is too
young to furnish many examples of
the editorial pen being passed on
from sire to son. In tho west there
are some instances, The Lnnries
sire and son. havo been associated
with the Battleford Herald ever since
that paper, the oldest in the two provinces, was established. Walpole
Murdoch, o'f the Hartnoy Slav, is "
newspaper man by heredity as well
as by instinct, for his father conducted the local paper nt Birtle, and was
associated with others, until his
death. And, in the city of Brandon.
Clarence King, the editor of the
Times is also' a journalist by lineal
descent, succeeding to the editorial
cha'ir on the death of his father, under whom he learned practically all
he knew of the business.
Mr. King is certainly one of the
most forceful writers as well as youthful figures in Manitoba journalism.
He has all the excellencies, and some
of tho defects, characteristic of energetic, earnest minded young men.
He Is dynnmlc, magnetic, exuberant,
the possessor of a strong will and a
vivid imagination. Somewhat prone
to Impulse, with high ideals and largo
views, he Is apt. to be more concerned
with results rather than processes,
and often disregards the calls of caution and policy In the pursuit of whatever he deems tho proper course to
pursue. Not the desirable or the
merely expedient, hut the right, Is
what he aims nt. On matters Involving principle ho will neither truckle
nor compromise, nnd his downright
forthrlghtness sometimes loses hlni
friends and allies thnt a more cautious and experienced man would utilize In thn advancement of tho views
he desired to prevail. Mr. King Is a
mnn of positive personal opinions,
nnd Is not. nfrnld to give them expression. He has the combative intellectual temperament, and enjoys a
controversy as an Irishman enjoys a
fight. He wonts to "see something
doing" all the time, nnd when those
seasons of deadly dullness which his
soul abhors come along, nnd thoy dr
come in a newspaper, as In every other business, he can generally ho relied on to galvanize tho neighborhood
Into Interest by stirring up snmo nues-
tlon. old or now, that touches the
minds, or hearts, or pockets of the
people who read his paper. He has
the true professional instinct of the
journalist.      He would  much   rather
see and hear himself and his paper
| abused nnd grossly maligned and
misrepresented than not be spoken of
'at all. He would much prefer to be
libelled than Ignored.
| These characteristics suggest strong
Individuality, and this ls amply borne
!out by closer acguaintance With the
[editor of the Brandon Times. Beneath those traits of impetuosity and
assert'lveness that have made him detractors, and even enemies, are qualities of sterling worth and excellence.
If he sometimes errs on the side of
j haste in coming to conclusions, his
tenacity In holding them, and his re-
fsourcefulnes In defending them, compel admiration and respect. Though
ihe is apt to forget the flrst part of
Polonius' advice to Laertes, "Beware
of entrance to a quarrel", none can
accuse him of failure to practice the
second, "But, being in, so bear thyself that the opposed may beware of
thee." With strong personal, and
sometimes original views, with good
powers of expression, a forcible style,
a good working knowledge of the
principles of government, and familiarity with the questions that constitute the Issues of Manitoba nud
Western Canadian politics, It ls no
wonder that Mr. King occupies a
high position among the younger generation of western newspaper men,
nor that his friends predict for h'im
a career for which his present position is but the prelude.
Before assiunlng the editorship of
Ihe Brandon Times, Mr. King was for
Borne years editor of the Brandon Independent, the pager founded by his
father. Mr. King, sr., was a journalist of the British school, and endeavored to transplant to Western Canada the professional ideals of the
motherland. He edited the Independent with marked ability, but, naturally, It did not appeal to a Canadian
as it would have done to a British
audience. Under the management of
his son, after his death, it became
more adaptable, though, to a large
extent the editorial traditions were
worthily perpetuated. AVhen Mr.
Purcell! for some yours the manager
and editor of the Times, joined the
staff of the Brandon Sun, ths Times
and the Independent amalgamated,
the combination forming a strong
paper, and to Mr. Clarence King was
given the task of guiding its destinies. The present acknowledged position the Times occupies In Manitoba
is the best, nnssihle tribute to the efficiency of his management. Typographically, the Times hat, ever since
it came under the control of Mr. E. L.
Christie, been one of the nest
papers  in Western Canada.

How quickly and how thoroughly
the Northwest Mounted Police bring
lawbreakers to justice was never better exemplified than in the conviction they secured against John B.
Johnson of Lavoy, about seventy
miles west of Vermillion in Alberta.
Johnson was engaged in the lumber
business and was a member of the
firm of Johnson Bros. & Stewart.
On the 18th of December last he
made application through a local Insurance agent for protection to tbe
extent of $4,000 upon a stock of lumber. On the flrst of January or less
than two weeks later n Are took place
under rather suspicious circumstances. Without waiting for any instructions the mounted police anpear
to have taken the matter right in
hand investigated all the circumstances and within six weeks had
Johnson convicted and sentenced to
two years in Stony Mountain for setting ills own lumber yard on fire with
the apparent purpose of defrauding
the insurance companies. The latter
are usually very active in following
up nny offenders who try to defraud
them but in the territories, or what
must now be called the two new provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan
the police act a good deal quicker
than the vigilant Insurance companies.
The facts concerning this case are
briefly as follows. On the 18th of
December, Johnson made the application for insurance to the local Insurance agent. On the 1st. of January following the fire took place. On
the 8th of January the police issued
the warrant and arrested Johnson.
On the 9th of January, the day following, he was examined before a
magistrate at Vlgrevllle and by the
lagistrate was committed to the
nol nt Ft. Saskatchewan awaiting
trial, ball being refused. On the 10th
of February he was committed to
Stony Mountain. This is carrying
out the law with promptitude and
speaks volumes for the efficiency of
the mounted police.
The circumstances surrounding
this fire were as said nt the outset,
very suspicious. At the trial, a witness, Thos. S. Bronton, deposed that
ho and others were called out of bed
with the report that the lumber yards
were on fire. When they reached
Johnson's lumber at Lavoy they
found lt blazing ln three places. It
had been alleged that thp train had
started the fire but the evidence
clearly showed that this was Impossible as the yards are situated on the
south side of the track and a strong
wind was blowing from the south so
that it is obvious that any spark from
the train would have blown on the opposite side of the track to the one
upon which the lumber wns situated.
The next morning Bronton along
with others, made nn examination of
the scene of the fire nnd found footprints In the snow leading from the
ynrd. The track of these circulated
across the prnlrlo nnd back to the
railroad towards Vogrevlllo. Bronton followed tho track for about, half
a mile nnd found a watering can
whleh had contained coal oil. Along
with four others he drove to Veero-
vlllo and about, a mile from this
point they snw a "man track" on the
railroad similar to the ono they hnd
seen taking a circular route on the
prairie    from   tho scene of the Are.
They measured tho foot-print with a
stick and reported the result of their
Investigations to the mounted pollco.
Bronton's evidence proved almost
conclusively that the fire had been
the work of an Incendiary. It remained to find out where the watering can that had been used for carrying coal oil had come from. The
police were not long finding this out.
They visited several stores with the
result that a storekeeper at Vegre-
ville E. L. Poulln, swore that between the 20th and 2Gth of December
Johnson, the accused, bought from
him ten gallons of coal oil which he
put In a ten-gallon whiskey keg. He
also bought, a second hand watering
can. When bought the can had a hole
In It which Johnson had mended.
Johnson apparently had shared an
office with another party by the
name of McNeill and when he purchased the coal oil and the watering
cnn he explained that McNeill was
out of coal oil and that he wanted a
sprinkler for his office floor. Judge
Scott before whom the trial was
heard was not satisfied with the prisoner's explanations and he therefore
sentenced him to two years ln the
The Free Press commenting editorially upon the case said:
The action of the mounted police
as brought to light by the recent trial
at Edmonton cannot be too highly
commended. Arson at any time is a
crime that is difficult, to detect and
punish. The trial and conviction of
the Lavoy Incendiary at Edmonton
within the short space of six weeks
Is all the more deserving of praise.
Ther action compares very strikingly with the administration of the law
ln Manitoba. Some three years ago
a case of incendiarism was reported
from Emerson. In the absence of any
attempt on the part of the provincial
police to locate the cause of this particular fire the insurance companies
themselves employed nt very great
expense outside detectives, who succeeded in establishing evidence that
led to conviction.
At the present time the companies
find It necessary to make very close
enquiry Into the origin of many fires,
and usually have detectives of their
own at work.     The   evidence    they
have In many cases obtained makes
It quite clear that certain fires of recent occurrence are of Incendiary origin,   but   the   evidence necessary to
secure   a   conviction was  not  sufflc-
| lently   exact    and    unelrcumstnntial.
j While   the   Insurance   companies nre
making   these   efforts   to reduce the
| loss    from   Incendiarism,   the public
j should also hear In mind that It con-
j cerns them quito ns much as lt does
| the companies.     The public pay for
all   the   losses,   not  tho companies.
| This fact appears to bo lost sight of.
j If Incendiarism Increases so will the
insurance rates.

In Homeric days a buttle wns a conflict

Battles aro fought nt ranges of a mile

"When playing Love's two-handed

Thnt  one    might,   at  the    game's

I've thought  that  one  might  more

"I'vo reasoned   that  if cards were

At first, so we'd not feel, and sadly,
We'd ln the game been "buncoed"
It's certain were this know-lodge given.
Less frequently wonld hearts be riven,
And warm affection pnt to ront
By this sly joker-card called Doubt
Bnt, then, wero winning always sure,
The game no longer would allnre.

Probably the most striking gaiinent
novelties of tho season may ho found iu
the collection of lace aud liugerio coats.
Styles are so diversiflod that laco has
beeu worked up iuto an innumerable
number of attractive garments. Tha
real novelties are the little short Eton,
pony and semi-fitted laoe coats. Some
of these are made of real Irish lace iu
patterns especially designed for the
purpose. Au attractive stylo shows an
Eton front with a bertha or cane back.
A number of theso are in the natural
color of the cream laco, without a touch
of color whatever. Others are artistically trimmed with bows or neck trimming of contrasting velvet, such shades
as coral piuk, lavendor, resoda green
and Alico blue being employed to
nil vantage.
Fashion's oapriciousjand domineering
dame often chains her votaries with
restrictions and rules hnrd to follow
uud ovou more difficult to accept. The
latest of her edicts, however, presenting
the feminine, world gny in its colored
spring attire and adorned with all sorts
aud conditions of ribbons aud frills,
show that tho lnw of compensation is
proven as quickly in the fashion world
as in any other.
Women have lobored long with the
rigid aud uncompromising rules of
tailor-made laws, only to rise at last,
and with one mighty universal effort
throw off the masculinity of their sober,
sovoro attire; emerging liko butterflies
dressed iu all of the hues of the rainbow, and with their frills aud furbelows
fluttering gaily in the spring sunshine,
all adorned with brilliant ribbons, each
individual strand as perfect a silken
copy of frnit, flower and bird as it is
possible for the clever fingers of designers and weaver to prodnoe.
In the Bnit departments, uot excluding those handling medlnin-class goods,
somo form of tho Eton stylo predominates. Nearly every spring material
hns been employed in cresting these
natty garments, but iu the fiuer departments snch materials as flue plain and
faucy voiles predominate. It seems
rather peculiar that, whilo colored voiles
hava not been active in the yard good-
sections, manufacturers and importers
of fine costumes have seen fit to ase tbh
material extensively.
The Princess mode ia shown everywhere, but reports to date show that ia
a general way this garment has nol
been vOiy active, evon in the oity.
Bnycrs and department managers claim
that the Prinoess gown is difficult to
alter and that it does not seem practioal
except in the fine high-class materials,
the prioe of whioh is sufficient to cove-
extensive alterations when they are
