ZAM-BUK   WILL   SURELY   CURE  Hero are a few instances of Zam-  Buk's healing power:  Three children in one family in  Burk's Falls have been cu ed of se i-  ou8 skin diseases by Zam-Buk.  Mrs. Minnie Elliff, of St. John's  West (Welland County), says: "My  baby had a kind of rash on his head  quite a lot of small red spots and  pimples. I applied Zam-Buk and  was1 delighted. with the r suit."  Mrs. Goring, of Longford Mills,  Bays: "Zam-Buk is a wonderful  healer of ringworm. I tried everything that could bs thought cf, but  nothing was able to cure until Zam-  Buk came.   It is a fine remedy."   ,  Mrs. Br!dge3, of South Cote, g.-.sk.,  writes: "I used Zam-Buk on baby's  cheeks when they got chilled, with  -excellent results. ,. It is the best  thing I know for burns, and. shall  always keep Zam-Buk in the house."  Zam-Buk is particularly adapted  to delicate and tender skins. If'is  free from all mineral coloring matter and from animal fat, being purely herbal. It- heals cuts, burns,  bruises, ulcers, chapped places, eczema, ringworm, running sores, bad  leg, enlarged veins, piles, scaling  sores, etc. As an. embrocation it  cures rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia, and rubbed well on to the cheat  in cases of cold eases the tightness  and aching.

Tfea Wrecker* of Sclllr. V  As far back as the time of Henjry I.  there were royal grants of "me islands  and their wrecks," and frequent was  the phrase In centuries following. With  royal encouragement, why should they  not be wreckers? One Sunday, long  ago, in Scilly, service was in progress  when there came the cry of "Wreck !'<  The men started from their seats. In  a moment there would have been a  stampede, but they cowered back as*  the minister sternly, thundered a warning. He strode to the door, Again his  voice arose. "Let's all start fair!." he  shouted, throwing off impeding cassock  as he ran, while his congregation labored at his heels. Most curious, of all  wrecks was that of a bark, with a cargo of beads, that went ashore 200 years  ago. So generous bas been the ocean  with this treasure that throughout  these two centuries it has intermittently been tossing beads ashore, yet so  frugally that the supply is( not yet exhausted, for in a few minutes* search  I .found that some had been thrown  there since the last search of the, islanders.���������Robert Shackleton in Har  per's. i;'!

This  created .so profound   an   impression  that the minister plenipotentiary of  . Guatemala offered him toe presidency  | of the construction of the Nicaragua  i canal. The proposal was followed by  ; the offer of the   presidency   of   the  ('Ecuador republic: The latter offer was  (conditional upon King Louis Philippe's  releasing the captive and upon the  latter'a giving his parole never to return to Europe. Louis Napoleon was  {prepared to give bis parole, and 8lr  * Robert   Peel, then prime'minister of  ���������( Great Britain, was willing to back up  i his application for release upon these  j terms.

Some one has found a hint, as soma  one always does when there is a new  Invention or discovery, of the automobile In the Bible. It is the vision of  Nahum, the Elkoshite, concerning the  burden of Nineveh. In the account  given by this seer of the military muster and array of the Medes and 'Babylonians against the doomed City of  Nineveh, the mistress of witchcrafts,'  when "the people In the midst of her  were women," the Elkoshite has this  remarkable verse: "The chariots shall  rage in the streets, they shall Jostle  one against another in the broad ways,  they shall seem like torches, they shall  run like the lightnings." A variant of  the word "jostle," which the original  Hebrew will, it is said, equally well  or better bear, is "pass swiftly, with  out particular purpose, to and fro," a  rendering which brings the cars of  the Hebrew prophet into, perhaps,  still closer connection with the motor  cars of the present day.

BREAKDOWN OF  NERVOUS SYSTEM  Too Frequent Those Days���������Prevented by use  of the Great Restorative  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  The keen competition of life is now  felt in all grades of society, and as  the result prostration, paralysis and  Insanity are becoming more and  more common as the natural outcome  of exhausted nerves.  8 eeplessness, irritability, indigestion, headache and a general lack of  energy and ambition are among the  early indications of nervous troubles,  and with women the result is not infrequently derangements and ir.egu-  larities of the feminine organism.  If a committee of experts on. diseases of the nerves were to prescribe  for you they would give you just such  a formula as that of Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food, for this medicine is composed of the mosjt powerful restoratives known in medical science.  This is no idle boast, as we shall  be pleased to prove to you if you will  have your physician call at these offices and examine the formula.  ,What we consider as_.bette,r proof  of what Dr. Chase's Nerve Food will  do for you. is to be found in the letters of recommendation published  from time to time in Dr. Chase's Almanac and in the newspapers of this  countrv.  Mr. Aib^t 8 nnier, Willow Bunc-h  Sask.. writes: "I received the two'}  boxes of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food  which I ordered from you and have  found it to be an excellent medicine. -  It has proven a. splendid, treatment  for headache and a run down system and I nave . recommended.; if t'o,  many people."

For  k half a mile or more, until the  little house had sunk below the  hill crest, Trove was looking backward. Now and ever after he waft to  think and tarry also in the road of life  and look behind him for the golden  towers of memory. Tbe drovers saw  a change In Trove and flung at him  with their stock of rusty, ancestral  witticisms. But Tburst Tilly had a  way of saying and doing quite his own.  "Never see any one knocked so flat  ns ye was," said be. "Ye didn't know  ���������enough t' keep ahead o' the cattle. I  declare, I thought; they'd trample ye  'fore we could gltyer eye unsot."  Trove made no answer.  '���������That air gal had a mighty power In  her eye," Tburst went on. "When I  see her totiu' you off las' night I says  t' the boys, says I: 'Sid Is goin' t' git  stepped on. He ain't never goin' t' be  the same boy ag'in.' "  The boy held his peace, and for days  neither ridicule nor excitement���������save  only for tbe time it lasted���������was able to  bring him out of his dream.  That night they came to a wild country, where men and cattle lay down to  rest by the roadway, a thing Trove enjoyed. In the wagon were bread and  butter arid boiled eggs and tea and  doughnuts and cake and dried herring.  The men built fires and made tea and  nte their suppers and sang, as the night  fell, those olden ballads of the frontier,?  "Barbara Allen," "Bonaparte's Dream"  and the "Drover's Daughter."  ~~Tordays"Tbey were "driving in~fhe  wild country. At bedtime, each wound  himself in a blanket and lay down to  rest beneath a rude lean-to If It were  raining* but mostly under the stars.  On this journey Trove got his habit of  sleeping out of doors in fair weather.  After It, save In midwinter, walls  seemed to weary and roofs to smother  him. The drove began to low at daybreak, and soon they were all cropping  the grass or browsing in the briers.  Then tbe milking and breakfast over  a cnmpflre, and soon after sunrise they  were all tramping In the road again.  It was a pleasant Journey, tbe waysides glowing with the blue of violets,  tbe green of tender grass, tbe thick  sown, starry gold of dandelions.

Bvery  thicket was a fount of song that fell  to silence when darkness came and the  low chant of tbe marshes,  When they came Into settled country  below tho big woods they began selling, At length the drove was reduced  1o one section, Trove following with the  helper named Thurston Tilly, familiar*  ly known os Tburst.  He was a tall, heavy, good notured  -man, distinguished for fat, happiness  ami singular aptitudes. He bad lifted  a barrel of salt by the chimes and put  It on a wngon; once he had eaten two  mince plea at a meal; again, he bad  put his heels six inches above his bend  on a barn door, and any time ho could  wiggle one ear or both or whistle on  his thumb.  It was not easy to rtlsposo of cattle  In tho southern eountlfs that year, but  they found a better market as they  boro west, and were across the border  of Ohio when the last of the drove  were told. That done, Trove and  Tburst Tilly took tbo mnln rond to  Cleveland, whence they were to return  homo by steamboat,  It Jed them Into woods and by,  stumpy fields and pine odored hamlets.  The first day of their walk was rainy,  and they went up a toteway Into thick  timber nnd built a flro and kept dry  nnd warm until tbo rnln ceased.

A roan and wife and thr^e boy* were  the party, traveling with two wtgont.  They wire hound for Iowa and, being  heavy loaded, were baring a bird  time.

They-looked In silence at the fire a  moment.  "We're a bit homesick," said the  man, turning to Trove, "an* no wonder. It's been hard traveling, an* we've)  broke down every few miles. But we'll  have better luck the rest o* the journey."  Evidently his cheerful courage bad  been all that kept them going.  "Lost all we had in the great fire of  ���������35," said he thoughtfully. "I went to  bed a rich man, but when I rose in the  morning I bad not enough to pay a  week's board. Everything had been  swept away."  "A merchant?" Trove inquired.  "A partner in the great Star mill on  East river," said the man. "I could  have got a fortune for my share���������at  least $100,000���������and I had worked hard  for it."  "And were you not able to succeed  again?"  "No," said the traveler sadly, shaking  his head. "If some time you have to  lose all you possess, God grant you still  have youth and a strong arm. I tried���������  that is all���������I tried."  The boy looked up at him, his heart  touched. The man was near sixty  years of age. His face bad deep lines  in it; his voice tbe dull ring of loss  and failure and small hope. The woman covered her face and began to  sob.  "There, mother," said the man, touching her head, "we'd better forget. I'll  never speak of that again���������never.  We're going to seek our fortune.: Away  in the, great west we'll seek our for-:  ���������tune." : .Q--   .  His effort to be cheerful was perhaps  the richest color of that odd scene there  In the still woods and the firelight.  "We're going to take a farm in the  most beautiful country in the world.  It's easy to make money there."  "If you've no objection I'd like to go  with you," said Tburst Tilly. "I'm a  good farmer." ,,  "Can you drive a team?" said the  man.  "Drove horses all my life," said  Tburst, whereupon tbey made a bargain.  Trove and Tilly went away to the  brook for water, while the travelers  went to bed In their big covered wag-,  on, Trove lay down, with bis blanket  on the boughs, reading over the Indelible record of that day, And be said  often, as he thought of It years after,,  that the saddest thing in all tbe world  It a man of broken courage.  They were up betimes in the morning, and Trove ate hastily from bis  own store and bade them all goodby  and made off, for be had yet a long  road to travel. He got to Cleveland  late In tbe afternoon.  Trove began to laugh.  "Nay, that Is not all," said the tinker,  his pipe In hand. . "Deacon Swackham-  mer hath .smitten tbe head o* Brooke.  Oh, sor, 'twas a comedy. Brooke gave  blm an ill sounding word. Swackham-  mer removed his coat an' flung it  down. 'Deacon, lie there,' said he.  Then each began, as it were, to bruise  the head o' the serpent. Brooke, poor  man, he got the worst of it. An', sad  to tell, his wife died the very next  day."  "Of what?" Trove Inquired.  "Marry. I do not know; It may have  been joy," said the tinker, lighting his  pipe. "Ah, sor. Brooke is tough. He  smites the helping baud an' sickens the  heart o* kindness. I offered him help  an' sympathy, an' he made It all bitter  with suspicion o' me. I turned away  an', said I to meself: 'Darrel, thy head .  is soft. A babe could brain thee with  a lady's fan.'"  Darrel puffed his pipe in silence a  little time. >  "Every one hates Brooke," said  Trove.  "Well. I'd another chance to try the  good law on him," said Darrel present-.,  ly.

According to etymology a "retail  grocer" as It used to be spelt, Is really  a trader "In gross"���������that Is to say, in  large.quantities, wholesale. Englishmen of other days spoke of "grossers  of fish" and "grossers of wine," and an  act of Edward III. expressly mentions  that "grossers" dealt In all manner of  goods. In those days "splcer" was the  word for "grocer" In the modern  sense. But It happened that the Grocers' Company, founded In the fourteenth century, specialized In splcery,  and so "grocer" gradually took the  -place-of���������'spicer���������'l���������- ;������:  "Blatherskite" Is generally recognized as an American word, but Its  origin Is Scotch, really the old "bletherskate," from "blether," to talk nonsense (old Norse "bladhr," nonsense)  and "skate," a term of opprobrium. In  the song, "Maggie Lauder," written (  about 1650, occur the words, "Jog on  your gait, ye bletherskate"; and this  song was a very popular one In the  American camp during the war of Independence. Hence the vogue of the  expressive word, In Its Americanised,  form. "Bletherumsklte," was the Irish |  version early In tbe nineteenth century.  "Etiquette" is a French word which  originally meant a label Indicating the  price .lor quality the English "ticket"���������  and In old French was usually specialised to mean a soldier's billet. The  phrase "that's the ticket" shows the  change of the present meaning of manners according to code. Burke aol-  emnly explained that "etiquette bad Itt  original application to those ceremonies and formal observances practiced {  at courts. The term came afterward to  signify certain formal methods used In  the transactions between sovereign  states.'*  Morocco's Domlntnt Paotor.

Several years ago the Canadian  Government took from the tribes  of Indians about Athabasca lake  arid' river a large tract., of land  and in payment for the same it gives  each year $5 to each Indian and $85  to the chiefs and their families. This  money is paid in $1 bills.  The reason for this is that the Indians dwelling in the district do not  know the value of money, writes the  Seattle, Wash.,.correspondent of The  Chicago Tribune. A paper dollar looks  to him about the same as' a blank  piece of paper to a baby. Should the  payment be made in silver the simple  minded child of the wilderness would  punch a hole in it and wear it aboat  his neck, and thus a great deal of  mon%y would be taken from circulation. Should payment be made in one  bill, the Indian is liable to lose it.  Once each year a representative of  the Canadian Government makes a  trip through the country and pays the  Indians. On this trip he takes $80,  000 in $1 bills, and will probably pay  out more than 8200,000. The natural  question from civilization is, how does  he do itP  As the Indian knows nothing about  the value of money, his method of financial trade is on the value of skins,  and when, one talks dollars to him  his face has the expression of a blank  cartridge. Fortunately for the Government, the Hudson Bay company has  secured the.entire confidence of the  Iidlans during the century of dealing,  with them and the money paid to the  Indians finds its way into the trading  posts of the company,  Here is how the Government paymaster'does his phenomenal stunt of  paying $200,000 or more with only $80,-  000 in his pocket. He goes direct to a  district inhabitated by perhaps 2,000  or 3,000 Indians; here he will pay  from $10,000 to $20,000 in "treaty  money." Each Indian and his family  is given the five $1 bills in payment  for his surrender of the land and each  chief his $25.  After making this payment the paymaster takes a rest for a short time at  the Hudson Bay post nearest the pay  station.' Within a few days the. Indians  have made a line to the post and there  purchased whatever looks good to  them. They whack the money down  on to the trading post counter, order  something wo'rth'pefhaps'SO cehts'aricV  leave. The company agent charges the  red man with what he has purchased  and credits him with the balance cf  the $5, so that, in the future he can  trade out the remainder of the  amount.  Within a week from the date of paying the treaty money every dollar of  the amount has been paid into the  trading post. The paymaster gives the  post agent a check for the amount and  starts for the next Indian settlement.  Thus he goes from one tribe to  another, paying the Indians, waiting  for the money to be turned into the  posts, and continuing on his rounds,  when tbe agent returns to Edmonton  or back to civilization he has about  all the money he had upon beginning  tbe journey and hat paid out more  than $200,000.

In the middle ages night robes,' as a.  general thing, were unknown luxuries, '*���������'  Under tbe Tudors royalty and no*'  bllity bad them made of silk or velvet, and, as the old books say, "hence ���������  no washing was necessary."  A night robe of black satin bound  with black taffeta and edged with velvet of the same color was daintily  fashioned for Anne Boleyn.  More luxurious still was one owned  by Queen Bess. It was of black velvet, fuj-'lined, and greatly offset by  flowing borders of silk lace. And In  15$3 her majesty gave orders that  George Brodlgman should deliver  "threescore and six best sable skynnes,  to furnlsh ,Nus\ a night gown." Four ���������  years later her highness orders the  delivery of "twelve yards of purple  velvet, frlezed on the back syde, with  white and russet silke," for a night  gown for herself and also orders the  delivery of fourteen yards of murry  damask for the "makynge of a night  gowne" for some one else.  Night gowns tor ladies of a later  period were called "nyght vails." In  Queen Anne's time it was the fashion  to wear them over the customary dress  In the streets In the daytime, when out  on a pleasure walk. And, as was fitting, ladies who' indulged in nightcaps had them also made of silk or  velvet, with "much pretty garnishing  of lace and glittering cords," and the  fair ones made presentation^ costly  caps to each other as tokens of respect  or affection.  To Compott With Ontario.  Two forces are at work whioh ought  greatly to assist in the movement to  secure the packing of nothing but good  fruit in Ontario, One is the determination of the merohants and citizens  generally of the Prairie Provinces to  enforce the Fruit Marks Act and the  other ii the competition of the British  Columbia fruit grower. The Nor-West  Fanner records a case where a merchant at Carberry, Manitoba, refused  delivery of a carload of Ontario apples, wired the fruit inspector, who,  when be arrived, branded the whole  ear at falsely marked, .The fruit was  told for a much lower figure than originally arranged for, and this lost as  well ai the cost of enforcing the law  had to be borne by the packer, This  is one of tbe lessons tbe Chief of the  Fruit Department, Mr, A.

This  bright, well-printed Journal does not  read Ontario growers a sermon fur  their wickedness, but it contains what  it more dangerous, namely, two or  tbret oolumns of interesting reading  concerning the development of email  fruit, poultry and truck farms in the  Valley. These farmers appears to he  doing exceedingly well, and what with  a ready local tale of vegetables and  eggt at 76 cents per dozen this is not  surprising, All of them are planting  out orchards, and when these come  into bearing the competition which  Ontario growers experience west of  Winnipeg will be keener.  fbmadUns In the United States.

How   They   Are   Stripped   ef   Their  Shells While Alive.  The shells shipped from the Colon  district are taken from turtles caught  on the Lagarto and San Bias coasts of  the Caribbean sea during the months  of May, June, July and August, when ���������  they approach the shore to deposit  eggs, which are laid on the sandy-  beaches above high water mark at  night. Holes are dug about one and a  -half-feet-deep-and-the-eggs-deposited-  therehi. Generally about three layings  are made during a period of nine-  weeks. Tbe eggs are lightly covered  with sand and left to be batched out  by the heat of the son. Tbe turtles are  caught either while on shore or in the  water by means of nets.  As a rule, tbey are killed Immediately  after being caught, cleaned and the  shell frame washed with sand. But on  tbe San Bias coast the Indians do not  kill them, but at once proceed to remove the shell by subjecting the turtles to great beat, afterward throwing;  the turtles back into the sea. By the  application.of beat tbe successive plate*  of shell come off very easily.  Turtles caught in these waters vary  In size from one to four and a half feet  long, with a maximum weight of ISO*  pounds, and tbe average weight of  shell obtained from each it from six te  seven pounds, Tbe commercial value  of tortoise shell depends upon the thickness and size of the plates rather than  upon the brilliancy of tbe colors.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NO woman can be well dressed  without good-looking gloves.  Her gown may be or the best  __ cut, her hat the daintiest of  French confections, her furs the finest  sables, but if her -rloves are shabby,  soiled, torn or badly put on, the whole  effect of, her costume is spolle  A   wise   woman   never   buys   her  floves on the bargain counter. She  ndws that' it will pay her to get  a good pair in the beginning and to  take care of them. Good gloves are expensive, but they are worth while;  they are looked upon as a luxury by  some women, but they are a paying  luxury in the end, for one pair at S2,  well taken care of. will outlast five  pairs at a dollar.  First of all, it is a good plan to select a shop for your gloves that is satisfactory and stick to it. If you are a  regular customer, you will have no  difficulty in retting your gloves repaired whenever it is necessary. In  the better stores tbey keep one  woman especially to do the repair  work, and she will tend a rip or tear  or put In an extra thumb or finger  so skilfully that the glove will look  almost like new.  Next, have your gloves fitted at the  counter. , The woman who makes a  business of such things naturally  knows better how it should be done  than the amateur; the first "putting  on" counts tremendously in the after  appearance, iiany a glove is spoiled  by hastily thrusting a hand that Is  moist from perspiration or perhaps a  little soiled into it. More are ruined  by crooked seams or by tiny, shriveled  tips which come from not putting tbe  fingers In carefully and thoroughly.   GO TOTKB E3QH&Jt������M___  Now a moist hand is.usually the result of bad circulation,, and the remedy applied should go to the root of  the evil. Powdering the hand works  temporarily, but If the practice is persisted in' for any length of time, a very  disagreeable odor clings to t������������ glove.  Instead of the powder puff, the woman  with moist hands should resort to the  Turkish towel. A brisk rubbing Just  before putting on the glove will dry  off the moisture and get the circulation into good shape.  When you begin to put on your glove  be leisurely, work each finger down  until it comes to the tip of the glove  finger. And just here It Is well to caution all women against buying gloves  that are too long In the fingers. If the  make that you specially like is too long,  get the professional repair woman to  shorten the fingers for you, but whatever you.do, don't Indulge in superfluous ends of wrinkled kid.  Some women sense their short gloves  by the wrist and drag them on with  vicious energy. This means, of course,  .a stretched wrist or a torn thumb seam  ���������perhapB both. When the glove is safely on see that every part is smooth and  trig and fasten both buttons or clasps.  Nothing is more untidy than a glove  that is only partly fastened. Occasionally this happens because the glove is  too tight, and if women only realised  the hideousnesa of a cushion of super-  flous flesh sticking up through the. glove  opening th*y wwi* navpr henltate <"'er  buying the next larger size.  The effect of a long giove , is often  spoiled by its slipping down below the  elbow, leaving a line of flesh between  the glove and the sleeve for every  passerby to behold. Well-dressed women avoid this possibility by putting a  narrow hem at the top of their glover  and running a piece of elastic through  this hem. A glove fixed this way always fits smooth and taut;<  wrliklee about t*������������ wrist in a long  glove give a clumsy, awkward appearance to the arm. Keep the wrist-line as  smooth as possible, letting the wrinkles,  which are a part of the long glove, ot  course, begin several inches further up.  This gives a'graceful, tapering effect to  the arm.  Taking the glove off is as important  as putting it on. Turn the glove back  and draw off slowly, Never pull at the  finger tips, for you are apt to stretch  and tear them, and you will ruin tne  bape of your glove.   When the glove  A glove-stretcher's importance cannot  be overestimated, and every osreful woman will keep one on her dressing-table-  and use it often. It keeps the fingers int.  good shape and eradicates the tiny  wrinkles and little hard spots at tne-  tips, which come from excessive perspiration, and all these things go a long  way toward preserving the usefulness  and beauty of your gloves.

It seems such  a good opportunity to carry out the  color scheme, and we can often soften the light and give a pretty effeot  to a room by using, for instance, light  green or yellow silk sash curtains.  Other pretty colored effects can bo  obtained by using colored madras  curtains, These come in exquisite  shades and with big bold designs, as  well as small geometrical ones. One of  the accompanying illustrations shows  curtains of this sort. The curtains  hang close against tho sash and  straight down.

Out In Wyoming a lot of scientific  grubbers have uneartlwd the fossil remains of a horse thirty feet* long and  more than thirty feet high. The* grubbers seem to have pieced the-hone, together without any comment, and, they  don't offer a word of Information concerning either his genealogy or his  track record.  A horse thirty feet long would appear to be a lot of horse. It he belonged, to tbe cave man the latter certainly had hit hands full. A,horse so tall  that a thirty foot ladder became nec-  ewary when bit bridle was to be put  oo might well be called the pride of  the stable, although no ordinary stable  would begin to accommodate him.  If the cave man hadn't any ladder  and couldn't borrow one the next beat  thing was to climb a tree. Then try to  Imagine him.thinning up a tall palm  with the heavy bridle on his back, Only  to find when he attained the right altitude that the horse had moved beyond  reach and was peacefully browsing on  the tall grass of the Jungle!  Of course a thirty foot horse could be  expected to cover much more ground  than the ordinary animal of the same  breed, even at a walk. And If ho took  it Into bis head to work his way across  lots there would appear to be nothing  to Impede him. Fences would go down  before him like stubble, and a merely  playful cavort would carry him over  raging torrents.  When a thirty foot horse shied at a  bit of white paper in the roadway the  chances a/e that he jumped clear over  Into the next county.  As a war horse the thirty footer  must have been a startler. When he  let out a neigh the enemy fled la blind  and unreasoning terror. When he  champed hit" bit and pawed the ground  the very. .hU^thuddered.

The minute chenille spot is replaced by black velvet patches the  size of a sixpenny piece, and as for  hat-pins, I doubt if they can increase  in Size. Most of the latest patterns  are. adorned with knobs which would  not make insignificant door handles."  - "The tendency in jewelry is to adopt  distinctly exaggerated styles," a well-  known jeweler in Regent street said���������  "Large Oriental rings, heavily studded with jewels, are in great demand.  Drop earrings, which weigh down the  lobes of the'wearer's ears, are niade  in a most.massive pattern.  "Jeweled muff chains can rightly  be termed 'fashion's fetters.' The  tiny beads or crystals between the  links of the chain have been replaced  by lumps of turquoise, opal or amethyst in the rough.
