announcement of War is  Expected  Before  Nightfall���Italian
Squadron in War Formation is in Tripoli Harbor and Troops
and Stores Are Being Embarked at Italian Ports---
Turkish Troops Tear Immediate Attack.
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Tripoli,   Sept.   28.���Kurope   is
Inw on the brink of war.   Within.
Ifew hours from row it is believed
; Italy and Turkey will have
tied hostilities.    Italy is pre-
innl and is awaiting thc word.
Ready for War
ii   first   Italian  squadron   is
k>\\ in the harbor of Tripoli with
liv.ni up.   Tin* squadron is com-
i-nl of four Dreadnoughts, three
juisers ;'t>tl a flotilla of torpedo
.*.t*a.   They art- anchored ir lire,
ih decks cleared ar.d bunkers
\x\ magazines filled.   The order
open   hostilities   is   expected
tl.nt* night.
Will Convey Troops
At l.ari-nio, the second Italian
lii.itlroii   is   wailing   for   orders.
It will probably receive instructions to convey troop ard supply
ships to Tripoli. No troops have
yet been planted here, but lhe
Italian lard forces arc- ready for
embarkation and the reserves have
been called out to take the field.
Attack is Feared
The Turkish troops here fear
an attack at any moment. SB a
despatch from Milan has been
received stating that all the railways leading to ports are crowded
\��iih military trains loaded with
war supplies. The troops are
already at the pons wai,ing to
Tripoli from which the above
despatch comes from is the
capital   of   the  country   of   that
name. It is a city of 70,000 inhabitants. Thp dominion of Tripoli covers an extent of 350,000
square miles, wiih a coast line
extending on the Mediterranean
from Morocco to Egypt, and a
total population, of 700,000.
Tripoli ranks as a vilayet of the
Oi (anion Empire, but with her
coast line adjacent to Italy, the
latter country feels a necessity to
take a hand in sharing the administration of Tripoli.
The question has been under
diplomatic negotiations for a long
time. Italy's final offer was to
-.ti up a.n administration for Tripoli
jointly with Turkey. This offer
was refused by Turkey at the
behest <>f ihe Young Turks party.

a doze for a count of four. He
was on his feet rather dazed as
Referee Nelson Dunn's voice was
calling "Six," and stood up to
another light tap from Joe just as
the gong went closing the round.
Round three began with some
hard pressing on Tom's pari hailed
by the crowd with criis of "Make

Tommy got in ore good one wiih

Old Premier in a Speech Before the Canadian Club of Ottawa���Earl Grey Will Have to Prolong his Departure
a Week in Order to Swear in the New Ministers
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Ottawa, Sept. 28���Hon. R. L.

to the leadership of the Government of Canada. Very fittingly
it was a splendid eulogy of the
work of Sir Wilfrid Laurier during
the years he had served die country
Mr. Borden dwelt with emphasis
on the splendid vigor and fire
spirit shown by Sir Wilfrid in
the campaign just ended. The
cordial personal tribute from the
lips of his successor, were apparently esteemed by Sir Wilfrid
who was present.

exchange of compliments took place
at   the  banquet   tendered  by  the
Canadian Club of Ottawa to His
Excellency Marl Grey who is due
to leave Canada for England on
October 0th. Both Sir Wilfird

lo the toast of Canada, Sir Wilfrid
paying a high tribute to the
excellent qualities displayed by
the departing Governor-General

Earl Grey to ask him to postpone
his departure from October (ith
iill October 12th. He explained
that it had been found impossible
to complete the work of closing
the books of the various departments in time to enable the
Cabinet  to resign  their portfolios
before His Excellency's departure.
Must Appoint Ministers
As the new Ministers cannot
be appointed until the old ores
resign, and as the new Ministers
must be sworn in by the Govcrnor-
General it will be necessary for
the Governor-General to stay.
A Cabinet Council was held
during the afternoon. The work
of closing up the late Govern-
iiieni's work is being rushed in
the Government offices.

At  the adjourned  meeting of
the   Licence   Commissioners   held
yesterday the application of Geo.
Sutherland  for  a   bottle  licer.cfe
came up again and after some consideration  was  turned  down  on
the ground that all the signatures
necessary for the petition had not
been  secured,  ar.d  thiit   some of
those   which    had    been    secured
had not been signed to ihe actual
petition   as   filed,   but   had   been
signed to separate --lips containing
the   terms   of   the   petition,   and
forwarded to absentee owners by
the applicant.   After hearing the
arguments  arrayed   by   the   city
solicitor against   his  application
Mr. Sutherland announced  thai
In- would absolutely withdraw this
application.    He had  tried  for a
year to obtain a bottle licence
but had been continually turned
down. He \i.*s tired of trying lo
bring   his  application   into  shape
lo   satisfy   the   many   techiheal
mailers brought  up by  the city
solicitor and commissioners.
Absentee Lot Owners
Owing to the number of absentee lot-owners concerned, it
had l.een impossible for him lo
send the petition filed all over
lhe States and to the Old Country
for signatures, but in some cases
Then- is quite a serious possibility that the office Staff and
executive outfit of Missr*.. Foley,
WYIch A Stiwart, the contractors
for the last link of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, nii.y remain  the
Winter in Prince   Rupert Instead
iif   procccdii'ig   up   river   to   New
Haielton as has been planted for
the  working  of   the   list   Stretch
if ihe great contract.
The reason for lhe possible
delay in the transfer nf the executive staff up river is the phc-
nomenal IoWT.CSS of the water in
the Skeena i'i present.   Wiih ihe
water >esterday afternoon at 2 ft.
10 below zero and at a standstill
there seemed small prospect of
any heavy freight getting up
river. Today telegrams from Haz-
elion North antl South gave reports of a little niin falling, and
the river rising slowly. It was
raining at North Hazelton, and
cloudy at the southern point.
Both Mr. Verror Smith and Mr.
I). McLeod have remarked that
the   chances  look   rather   against
tin* transfer of the headquarter!
this fall.
There would be altogether some
iweiity-fivc or thirty members of
the  staff   to   transport   up   river
with all their belongings, ."I'd the
whole office equipment. The migration would employ two steamers
and they would be so heavily
freighted thai unless there is plenty
of  water   it   would   be   risky   to
attempt the trip. Railway transportation beyond the canyon is
delayed until the Kitselas Tunnel
is through. Today General Superintendent Mehan reported very
good progress with this tunnel,
which   some   sanguine   observers
have predicted will be through
before the snowfall this year.
he had sent a type written copy
of the petition on a separate siip
to distant lot owners.   They had
signed lhe slip, antl Mr. Sutherland
had simply written their names
in   the   blanks  on   the  document
filed.  To all intents and purposes,
as Mr, Fisher endeavored to impress on the Board) these signs,.
lures were as valid SS if they had
been   written   on   the   document.
but the city solicitor saw otherwise.
Married or Single?
Another point  brought out by
the city solicitor against the application of Mr. Sutherland wasl
thai    the   designation    of    sonu      ""'   '
men as married had been omitted
their signatures. The Board, however, assured him of the fad
which they agreed was well known
-'.bout the city.
A little attention was also paid
to lecliincaliuis regarding ilu- agreement of advertisement with
documents filed, but this (joint
was not dwell on. Mr. Fisher
showed to the satisfaction of the
city solicitor that it was general
court usage to hold such applications in order provided the terms
of the public notice were right
which was so in this case.
Adjourned for 40 Minutes
In order lo give Mr. Fisher and
the cily solicitor an opportunity
to consider together tin* objections
raised by Mr. Peters regarding the
signatures which he maintained
were  not   numerous  enough   to
cover the ground required by law
in this cse. an adjournment of
about forty minutes was called.
Ai ihe end of that lime Mr.
Fisher on behalf <>f Mr. Sutherland
admitted that although every effort
had been made io comply with
the spirit of ihe law on the subject
two or three necessary names had
been omitted, and withdrew the
Mayor's Regrets        (

Thursday. Sept. 28
Last night two half naked men stood inside a roped ring in a
local athletic club for several, rounds and pounded each other in the
many damaging ways that skilled boxers know. In their own way
they enjoyed it.    It was the love of the fight.
Around the ring some hundreds of Prince Rupert men gathered,
and applauded first one man then the other as each scored a point
or landed a blow on his opponent. They paid two and three dollars
apiece for the privilege of witnessing the match. It was the love of
the fight.
The preachers may talk till doomsday about "degrading spectacles" and "brutal exhibitions." They cannot eradicate the love of
the light thai lies very close to the surface of our common humanity.
One of our most gleeful memories centres around a ministerial
friend who interposed to stop a street fight, but getting hurt in tht
peaceful mission, suddenly forgot his sacred calling and turned in to
clean up the crowd. A story about a very popular priest now in Prince
Rupert���it may not be true, but it sounds like the truth���nils of a
rough house al an election meeting in the old Kootenay days. As
ihe excitement grew he leaned over to a friend and whispered, "As
a priest I can't very well hit anybody, but I wish someone would
hit me."
It has been pointed out by high-browed teachers of psychology
again and again, thai the phraseology of politics, of business, nay ol
eviingelic.il religion itself is the language of the battlefield or ihe prizi
ring.    All life is a fight.
"I've had no education. I've been a cow puncher since I was nim
years old. but I've seen a lot of life, and 1 measure a man by the amount
of punishment he can lake without giving in. A man can't win at ;in\
game that can't tight," was the way another man sized up his philosophy of life a few nights ago, as he exchanged confidences during
a long night ride in the teeth of a storm.
Sometimes women realise that the masculine love of a fight hat
a meaning in the race-development. Helen Macdonald, a clevei
British lady writer, some time ago lold in M. A. P. of flouting the conventions and attending a boxing match in London. Her description
i*- very novel:
"The fighl began. They punched each other in ihe ribs,
little punches, and the referee danced after them all the time
lo see that they punched fair. Just when I was getting interested,
they suddenly slopped and retired to opposite comers and sat
down on chairs.
"Presently blood came, and as I sat watching it, harassed
between feeling very well and feeling that I ought not to do so.
I began to understand how little I was realising that these men
wen- actually suffering physical pain. Nevertheless, it did not
worry me a bit The only thing I found and annoying and un-
pleasanl during the match was an ugly trick one man had of
jumping in with his mouth open. He looked as though he might
"The in in with the open mouth won. It was splendid to
-ee the gameness of ihe loser. He went right through with it to
the bitter end. His courage I could appreciate, even if my ignorance of Inixing caused me io miss ;dl the science of lhe blows.
"In ihe 'high-P.nd-far-off times,' before we all became so
civilized, courage and brute strength in her man made just tin
difference between life and death lo a woman.
"Tiny still count. Primitive instincts are hard to kill.
I glanced at the poor physique of some of the sightseers
as we left the place when the light was over, and I thought of
the incn I had just seen in the ring. I think I Understand wh\
the most of them would rather their women didn't attend prize
The men  who gathered hist  night   to witness and  to take par.
in the contest of blows were obcyii g an impulse lhal antedates history,
and thai i-* --till ... dominant factor in the real work of life.   To learn
to give blow- above all to learn lo lake them; to hit straight and learn
to take without bitterness or fear the blows that come is to lean
the strong man's philosophy of life.

"Well, I'm blank-id I Protheroe I
You Infernal drunken tool, come bank.
Come baok, I Bay.   You'll drown, sure."
But Protheroe took no notioe ot
Jim's frantlo cry. In thst roar of waters which was already about hla
waist, and seemed to be climbing toi
lils ears, ho could hoar nothing from
the shore which he had left, and If ho*
had done bo, ho had sense enough tl,:
know that it would have been mots
dangerous lo try to turn back than to
go on.
Jlm saw that himself, aa the words
left his lips, but It ls the fashion of
human b.-lncs In dire straltB to cry for
lhe Impossible. And Jlm was ln a
worse strait than tha doctor. In tho
���wlrl at his feet there were two small
objects, somewhat darker than ths
heaving darkness around them. They
might well have been pieces of drift
wood, being hustled down stream, but
to Jim they would bo ln that dreary
future In front of him, the horse he
stole and the man he murdered.
And the unsteady lights of the Soda
Creek lanterns were dancing along tho
river's course coming down Btream towards him, nearer and nearer, until he
could hear the voices of those who
carried them ln spite of the noise of
the waters.
With a curse he swung himself Into
the saddle, and wrenching the roan's
head round viciously, he galloped up
stream for fifty yardB, over a chaos
of slippery boulders.
Then he turned his horse's head towards the river, and drove his spurs
home, but though the colt's spirit was
broken by blttor hard work, hlB Instinct recoiled from this new peril, and
he rose fighting and pawing the air
on the very edge of the flood.
It was In vain. The man's blood waa
up and the Ice-coated boulders gave
the beast no footing. With a crash the
two went Into tho river, the horse on
Its side, whilst the man, thrown clear
ot bis mount, disappeared some feet
down stream of him.
Twice the beast was turned over ln
the flood, and for a few moments tho
water swept over lho man, but before
either had been drifted to the level
of Protheroe, Jlm bad regained his
horse's head, and twisting tbe fingers
of one hand in the beast's long mane,
swam steadily ou the down stream
side of It.
Once he had his head above water,
the colt swam superbly, driving
against the current with all the energy
of young life battling against death,
so that before they had half crossed
from shore to shore, Combe and his
horse were level with Protheroe, and
making some sort ot a breakwater for
But It was not enough. The doctor
was still In the saddle, and Combe
could see the pttuo's head sinking
lower and lower. If the doctor stayed
where he was. the horse embarrassed
by his weight, must drown, and In
spite of his efforts Combe could not
make his voice heard In that swirl of
waters. On the bank, the nolbe was as
the Indistinct roar of a mob, but In
mid-stream each voice became distinct,
Individual and hostile.
Hc heard Ihe waves roaring at him,
he could feel the undercurrents pulling
separately at him, he knew what tbey
wanted, and the fury, and the number
of them daunted hlni.
Ills only chance was to cling to bis
horse; his only hope of saving Protheroe seemed lo be to let go, and if
possible, drag the doctor out of bis
But at thc last moment Protheroe
seemed to realize what was required
of him, and slid out of tbe saddle, holding on to hla horse's mane, and swimming aa Jlm swam.
By this time both horses had drifted
below the level of thc ferry, which waB
now crowding with men, gesticulating
and apparently shouting to the two In
the water, and some of the more sober
among the lantern bearers having got
the ferry out towards mid-stream, were
endeavoring to let a rope down towards the doclor.
But it was hopeless fishing. The
line was not long enough, and ibe casting of It um.. unit.-. Neither Jim nor
the doctor attempted lo avail themselves of It.
Side by side, stunned by the noise
around them, they battled with tbe
Fraser, whilst though the farther bank
Beemed to romc no nearer, the red
lights of Sodti Creek grew moro dim
and distant, and the figures on the*
ferry more Indistinct.
Luckily for Ihu swimmers there was
even leas Ice In the river than there
had been In Ihe morning wben Combe
crossed It. The frost had not held In
the upper country through which flow
the tributaries that supply the Fraser
with Its first run of lie, but there was
enough of It to add lo their difficulties.
Suddenly the light of Soda Creek
went out altogelher, and the dancing
lanterns on the ferry disappeared, and
at the same time a new sound struck
upon their ears, a dull, grinding noise,
which grew louder and more distinct
with every second that passed.
They had drifted past a bend In the
river, and at lhc next, to which they
were being hurried, the Ice was packing. If they gol Into that pack before
reaching the further shore, It would be
tbe end of them. The horses, spent
already, mum go under ln the churning
and grinding Ire.
Straining Ills eyes lo the utmost,
Combo thought that he could Just distinguish thc line of ths farther bank,
���It was nearer than the Ice pack which
he could hear ln the dark below him,
but was It near enough? They were
being carried down stream many yard*.
for every foot which they made In the
direction of the shore. It was Just one
of those positions In which death Ib
made doubly hard by the temptation
to struggle against It. Daath Itself Is
probably not so very dreadful. Nature
Is full of bogles to coerce her wilful
children, and the last boglo of all, nurd
mainly to make us play out our Innings
to the end, Is possibly the most gentle
fraud amongst them, but that struggle
In ths dark against tha irresistible wa-
tors, with life and safety so near at
hand, was bitter to bear, and at tho
very ollmax of It Jim's horse gave ln
and turned Its head down stream.
In a moment they were raolng towards their death. After all that long
stubborn fight against the stream,
with ths shore almost within reach,
the fallurs of ths roan's courage had
ruined thsm. If hs bad been alone It
I Is possible that Combe would havo
gWsn ln than and drifted down qulstly
to his death, rather than fight longer
against the Inevitable, but tho sight of
the other man still struggling, and obviously spent, roused him to ono more
It was useless to shout to the horse,
but with his free hand ho managed to
Btrlko It ln tho face, nnd drag Its hoad
almost under with tlu- other, until tn
despair the beaat turned up stream
again. But It was too lato. Jlm knew
tt, for hs could hear the Ice teeth
gnashing almost at his heels, and he
only struck out still from a stubborn
determination to fight to tlio last inch.
His reward exceeded his hopes.
Since he plunged into the Fraser It
had seemed to Combe that he and his
horse by Immense efforts had Just
managed to remain stationary upon a
plane of sliding water which carried
them towards the ice pack, but now
for the first time the long lean head
which had borsd down upon him, pushing him always nearer and nearer to
eternity, began to forge ahead. There
was no doubt of It
They had reached the eddy under
the shore; the big boulders loomed up,
grew clearer, and the roan struck bottom.
At the first touch Combe's knees
seemed to give under him. All his
strength had gone, und having gone
through the depths lie seemed likely
enough to drown ln the shallows. It
waa only by an Immense effort of will
that he braced himself sufficiently to
stagger out ot the eddy. He could
have fallen where he landed, but a
cry from the doctor found one last re-
srv of strngth 1ft ln his companlonuu
serve of strength left In his companion,
and calling upon that "last ounce,"
Jlm blundered down the bank and Into
the water, falling against a great tooth
of rock, which broke the force of the
river at tho bend.
By what Beemed a miracle, the pinto
had Just made good Its footing on the
very last point between It and the
swirl which led to the Ice Jamb, but
the doctor was too spent to profit by
his horse's good luck, and though Jlm
grabbed him as hc wub swept by, he
could do no more.
For what seemed to him five of the
longest minutes hc had ever known,
the water crushed him against that
rock tooth, whilst his arm was recked
with the pain of keeping IiIb fingers
crooked In that bundle of wet clothing,
which swayed with thc current, but
which he had not strength lo drag
He could hold on to It, he would go
with It rather than let go, but hc could
not find tbe strength needed to draw
It to his own place Ol safety.
Jlm felt his body slipping away from
I the rock which sheltered him. Gently,
insistently, like an angler who puts all
the strain he dnrc upon a llghtly-hook-
, ed fish, thc waters drew him from his
hold, and then there rame one of those
; Btrangc chuckling sounds which water
makes amongst the boulders.
In his light-headed condition It was
| to Combe the laugh of a devil who
wins, and It tout-hod some spring in
I his nature, of which for the moment he
had lost control, the strength came
bark to hts muscles, and with a laat
j desperate effort he drew Protheroe to
, him;   dragged   him somehow to the
I river's brim, and dropped him there,
] where the waters lapped over tbe first
I boulders of the dry land.
For a long pause there was silence,
I but   for   tho   ravings   of   the    river,
. baulked of its prey, and the little wind,
| which wined like a wolf amongst the
i sage brush along the cliff's edge.
I'tterly    spent,    the    two men lay
where they had fallen, as did the pinto.
i Only the roan stood upright, and even
j his strong knees were bent, his head
' hung, and his whole body was shaken
; with shivering fits.
Combe was the first to recover.
Dragging himself to his feet, he went
over to thc doctor's horse.
"You've got to get up, old fellow." be
said, "or you'll die on our hands, and
| we can't spare you yet," but the poor
beast lay with head stretched along
I thc ground and look no notice of him.
j It had made up lis mind to die.
"Can you help. Doc?" Jim asked, but
; the doclor shook his head, and lay
slid, nor was It until nearly an hour
later lhat Combe contrived to get his
companion and the two horses up to
I lhe top of the i litis, upon  which  he
, built a roaring lite, not only for the
sake of comfort, but as a sign to any
| whom It might concern that they had
: survived the river crossing.
"And now, Doc, 1 guess you might as
��� well    get    along   towards the ferry.
I There'll maybe hc Bomeono there still,
\ unless they've all given us up for dead.
, You  will have had about enough for
one while, I expect."
"What!   Qlvo up the run when I've
I Jumped   thc   big   brook?   Not much,
"Then you mean coming on?"
"I started to gel there, and I'm going
to get there with both feet, my son,
' as you would say In your picturesque
Jlm pulled nt his pipe In silence for
some time, then ln a shamefaced way
he said:
"1 owe you an apology, Doctor,"
"For abduction?   Yes, I believe tbat
there Is some trivial penalty attached
to that form of amusement."
"No;  not a blanked   bit   for   that
' Yon'd have done the same only I didn't
know It. It's Just for not knowing you;
I'm sorry.   I ought to have known you
I were a man."
"I was drunk.    Anything   Is   good
| enough for a drunk."
"There ain't another man In Caribou would have risked hts life as you
did, drunk or sober."
Tbo doctor laughed.
"You did for one, and that Is life
anyway. Do you think that the loss
of it would be such a terrible calamity?
Think of It!    No more whiskey���bad
1 whiskey at that; no more graceful
badinage with the coy Kate Canyon;
no more delicate Jests with that fat-
headed bar keeper;  no more memory
- perhaps.    It I believed that last, Jlm,
��� by heaven. I would not forgive you for
i pulling me out.   But let's stop talking
1 and get a mnvs on, or those fools will
I be over to look for us."
"We shall have to walk, at first at
' any rate."
"It can't be helped.   I suppose lhat
I we can got some feed for the horses
I at Bralthwalte's."
"Yes, If we start now we should be
there by sun up." and lighting tholr
pipes, the two led tbslr horses away
towards ths wsst.
After Jlm Combe'B departure a
Btrange quiet fell upon the lite ot the
ninth. There were no galloping
hornet! about the corral; there waB no
noisy cowbow chaff about the barns.
The one thing necessary was that
Frank Anstruther should be kept quiet.
Any movement caused him excruciating pain, and was likely to disarrange
the Imperfect bandages in which his
body was swathed, and though he took
his punishment with set lips, never
i-oniplalnlng ot the pain, he was a bad
patient, restless under restraint, and
excitable to thestosi degree.
It wns only JPlong as Kitty was In
tho room that they could keep him
ni ill. As long as she waB ln hts sight
he would He hour after hour without
Btlnlng. only the eyes In his white face
alive, and those so followed every turn
of the glrl'B pretty head, that they
frightened her.
She began to feel that those burning
eyes could see through her Into her
heart, and for that Bhe was by no
means ready yet.
There was a picture In It upon which
she was trying to pass Judgment, a picture of a furious storm In which trees
were crashing and roofB lifting and
solid Bubslances were being whirled
about by some Invisible agency, and in
the middle of it all a great red roan
reared nnd raged.
"Them's baby tricks," she quoted
under her breath, and a proud smile
spread over her face as she thought of
the man who drove the great red devil
Into the heart of the storm to do her
"I wish that I could have seen Jlm
The voice came from the bed, and
KtttJ flushed guiltily as she turned towards the speaker. He did then read
her very thoughts.
"Why do you say that?"
"It must have been such a grand
match between Jlm and the stallion.
I don't think Jim has his equal as a
"That Is what they Bay about here,
but I don't suppose that hc would be
any good In your country."
"Why my country and not yours?"
and then with a generous impulse,
"Jlm would be good anywhere. The
better the class the more he would
shine In It. Sitting a fence Isn't as
hard as Bitting a buck Jumper. Seeming Ib not worth anything compared to
doing," and he pushed Irritably at the
bedclothes which encompassed him.
"Suffering is harder than either,"
said a quiet voice at his elbow, "Kitty,
make Mr. Anatruther take this, and
don't let him worry about Jlm. Jlm Is
oulte able to take care of himself."

This Is a little section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
Prevailing  Fashion  Will  Continue
Belts of suede and patent leather
will continue In fashion for fall
wear, Without doubt they are
the most service; Mi*, wear Letter
and look better for a longer time
than any other kind. The simps
are now showing beautiful new
styles, with all sorts of fancy
buckles���some of them set with
mock jewels, inlaid with enamel
or carved in intricate designs.
The bells' themselves are in
the most part plain; but for the
woman who desires a fancy touch
to her costume at the waist line
there is a wide select ion of fancy
models. A black patent leather
belt will show a lining and binding
of while or some vivid-colored
satin. Persian designs are inset
in the center and sides of the
belts, showing a lit inu of multicolored silk. Straps ard crossbars
of shiny kid arc used for ornanien
taiion also. Some of the bell:
are made of soft leather that is
very pliable and, when placet
laut about the waist, wrinkles
slightly. Other wide belts take
the form of a girdle and are
Listened with long metal buckles
covered wiih patent leather.
Practically the same styles are
carried out in thc belts of suede.
These, however, often show designs of metal nail-heads all the
way around. A very attractive
belt is of golden brown suede,
which slips through several obloi-g
slides that are connected,at each
end wiih line chains and arc se
with imitation toptp in silver
filigree. White suede is, of course,
the proper lx-lt to wear with white
gowns, especially with the white
serge skirts and lingerie blouses.
These can be easily cleaned and
promise to be very popular during
the early fall wiih serge suits.
Belts of embroidered liner match
ing the linen suit are splendid
for everyday wear, and with while
linen frocks one should have a
belt of linen embroidered either
in while mercerized thread, a
conventional design or a floral
wreath in colored floss.
Some women prefer an elastic
belt. They cling to the figure
and are sure to set properly.
These can be bought i.i all
colors, either plain or fancy. Those
trimmed with jet or steel beds
are often very attractive.
For lingerie dresses, the belt
or girdle of softly folded stain is
Charming. It is best to select
a delicate Shade matching tht-
ribbons or embroidery used on
the gown. Satin, mousseline, antl
even chiffon are used for girdles
on evening gowns when the broad
band  of embroidery about  the
raised waist line is omitted.
Everybody Has Heard It but All
Don't Remember It
The scenes on the old willow
chin;', pattern illustrate a Chinese
ove story  aid  are  quaintly  tx-
pl.'.ined in the little poem:
Two pigeons flying high,
Chinese vessel sailing by;
Weeping willow hanging o'er,
Bridge with thni men���If r.ot four;
Chinese temple then it staids,
Seems io cover all the lend.
Apple trees with i.pples tin,
A pretty fence to end my song.
The legend of ihe old willow
pattl rp nils of the bt-i'tit iftil daugh-
ter of a Chinese Mandarin, who,
refusing a. wealthy suitor favored
by   Iter   fat.- *r,   elopes   with   this
ncretr.ry.  The lovers an- pursued,
ihe  figures on   the  bridge  in   the
pr.ttern, represcntlrg the escape.
They  succeeded  in   reaching a
distant Island, where they lived
happily for years, until the disappointed suitor found them out
and burned tluir home. The doves
in the pattern represent the upward flight of their twin souls.
Practised Steadily Bring Health
Without Fail
Stand erect wiih back to a
door or wall with heels together
and touching the floor. Let hands
hang loosely tit sides. Take a
deep breath while counting six,
now exhale while counting the same
number; repeat six times. Raise
the arms slowly above the head
while taking a deep breath, counting six, lower them while exhaling,
repeating six limes. This and
similar exercises practised in an
airy room, morning and evening,
while free from binding or cumbersome clothing, will prove most
A Good Way to Cook Beef Liver
Grind 1 1-2 pounds of raw liver
and a sprig of celery with an
onion through the "machine.1
Turn inio a IxjwI and work into
il 2 stale soaked rolls and 1-2
cupful of dried bread. Season to
your liking with salt and pepper.
I Live ready enough dee]) fat,
hissing hot, to float doughnuts.
Inio this drop the mixture in large
spoonfuls. When these iire done
on ore side, turn ar.d brown upon
the other.
You should have at hand 2
cupfuls of potato balls cut with t
gouge from parboiled potatoes.
The water in which they arc
parboiled should be sailed. I'm
these into a casserole with a large
piece of butler, a minced onioi
and a large tomato, peeled and
sliced. Brown in the oven. When
the liver balls are done, pul llu in
into the casserole with the fat
ir which the liver was cooked.
Rub smooth 1 1-2 tablespoon fills of
flour in a little Wiiter ard slii
into the corsetr.s of ihe casserole
with 2 cupfuls of hot water.
Lastly, add a quart of boiled
green peas ard simmer all together for about .en minutes.
This may seem rather ar clal
orate   recipe,    but    the   dish    is
excellent when properly cooked.
Coffee Cake
