' Enderby was never more prettily  decorated; and the arrangements for  a successful celebration were never  more complete, and the various committeemen were prepared at all times  to look after and attend to the needs  of'the- visitors and to-bring off-the  ���������������������������events on time.  ', The' dayxopened bright and warm,  and -until nightfall there was not a  blaze, of sunshine ' nor yet a shower  to-'mar/vthe .celebration * or to cause  discomfort to anyone.- There was a  slight haze to check the hot" sunshine  .throughout the .day, and toward evening just enough chill to make light  _ wraps comfortable and to make the  football game interesting.  baseball either. - Calder and McDonald made a strong battery. Calder  does not throw a-swift ball,.nor yet  anything with much of/a, curve/but  he has splendid control, and has the  faculty of" putting them where the  batter cannot handle them to advantage. McDonald behind the bat is  quick, active and always has his head  on the job. He got under manv hard  fouls,' ' and" lost no  stop base-'-stealing.  Webster- the Enderby team has sained  great strength .at the bat. The Fra-  vel boys, Dean- and* Cecil, have also  added strength/to the,- team inJ base-  running, - and 7Allen Marwood and  Ernie .Evans -are .this,>year playing  a strong . game .on 2nd and 3rd .'.

The football ' game between Armstrong and Enderby was the last  event of the day on the field. It  was Armstrong's game from the start  though, not an easy one. The visitors  had . the - advantage of weight and  better' team work over - the - home  boys. They worked more like a moving body, and when the ball started  their way they,-followed ,it"up and  kept it moving.

It proved to be a  game lacking in baseball, but full of  fun, Salmon Arm is to be congratulated, however, in this: it was a  home team, and, though they do not  play swift baseball, they do play a  good-natured, clean game. In this  they are not alone, of course, but  there is something Salmon Armish  about it that makes a crowd of  rooters feel good even if they are on  the down shoot. And the sympathy  of the crowd is with them.    1  The game was not close enough to  be interesting as a ball game, but it  was just the kind of a game to start  the day with. It made the home  rooters feel good and didn't make the  visitors feel bad���������������������������thev didn't expect  anything else and were not disappointed.  The Enderby team played rings  around the visitors���������������������������and didn't play  game i "F game was   not.easy for them,  was their's from the start.  it  , Revelstoke's rooters' chorus was  the feature of this game. The boys  sang well enough to warrant their  carrying home the scalps of the Vernon team���������������������������but they didn't.'  The baseball game was an hour late  in starting owing to, the delay in  getting_off_the_lacrosse, but_.it was. a  fast, and for the most part, close  game, and they gained half an hour  on tbe time allowed them.  The Revelstoke team played ball all  the time. In one inning only did the  battery of the   visitors go to pieces.  The score stood 13 to 9 in Enderby's favor at the conclusion of the  game, but this is no indication of the  character of game it was. Seven of  these runs for Enderby were made in  one inning, and four were made by  Revelstoke in one inning���������������������������the last.  Leaving out these innings, the game  would stand 6-4   in Enderby's favor.  Revelstoke was shut out in the 2nd,  4th, 6th, 7th' and 8th innings. Enderby was shut out in the 1st, 3rd,  6th and 8th times to bat. In the-1st  Revelstoke scored 1, in the 3rd, 2,  and in the 5th, 1. Enderby scored  1 in the 2nd, 3 in the 4th, 2 in the 5th  and the balance in the 7th.  In the 7th there was a delightful  scramble. Evans, Webster, C.Fravel,  Serbjer, Marwood, Calder and D. Fravel ran the bases while the visitors  were fumbling the ball,, and, but for  the fact that the merry-go-round  whistled to change passengers, the  fans tell us they would be going yet.  In the 8th inning the home team  went off their feet almost as badly.  It was looking too easy for them,  when all of a sudden they began to  realize that'the visitors had wakened  fs.Jhe-garden-- swings- placed; upon *the  ground^fbrVth'e^freV?use;ofthe/chil-'  dren,by.Mr.;Fultori.made\many-little  heart- the - happier' "duringVwhat- are  wearisome-Hours , of 'celebration day: V  ; v Iters' "doubtf.liliTil'"- anythirig7cbuld^  have*'been^putiupon^the���������������������������ground that  would-' have j:given'��������������������������� as much -genuine  pleasure to the/little folk-rarid some  not so^small���������������������������as the merry-^o-round.-  '  Now"while it-is fresh'on.the minds  of - all,'wherein: there - is need.' of' better  accommodations    at 7 the" recreation  grounds,' is the time to. make, the-improvements.

Mr. Baxter's appointment will certainly result in the  most good to ��������������������������� the district. He has  had seven or eight years' experience  as road overseer, and is particularly  fitted to handle the Mabel Lake and  tributary roads. He has been working on the road for the past three  years or thereabouts, and has helped  to build and keep in repair all of the  Mabel Lake road built in that time.  He knows every "bad" piece, and, if  given the machinery to work with is  in a position to quickly remedy the  road troubles complained of. Mr.  Baxter has beenstronply recommended for the appointment by men who  have worked with him and know his  capacity for handling the work.

That properly employed clipping haH  been conducive of a great deal of  good there can be no doubt. Anything  tha Vis of proven benefit to the comfort,  health and vigor of the horse, thus adding to his usefulness, beauty and value,  is always welcome to horse owners and  horse lovers. For a horse to b������������������ kept  in a high state of health it is necessary  that he be properly stabled, fed, exercised, clothed and groomed. .iTtoe latter  iB often negleeted, and as a eo������������������ae-  quence the coat becomes rough and  coarae and the pores1 of the skin get  clogged with dirt, grease, etc. The  animal grows dismal, becomes hide  bound, lice thrive and multiply, "eczema, mange, "cracked heels" pruritic,  grease heels and many other alimemts  occur directly or indirectly due to neglect or ignorant grooming, such neglect being due usually to difficulty of  grooming a long-tailed horie, lack of  time, etc.  In these cases, clipping, is th? remedy.' Many of the troubles mentioned  above will disappear, "or if not, will  yield very readily to treatment.. . . ' ',.  The skin is the great eliminating  organ of the body; pure blood depends largely upon a' perfectly healthy skin, with  open  and  active poros.  The thickness of the hairy covering  of the skin varies .with the different  types of horse, the better bred horses  having the finest .coats. By clipping a  draft horse may' yield five to ������������������ight  pounds of hair. From this amonnt  down to ton ounces .is obtained frexn  the lighter breeds.  The hair of the horse's body ie  changed twice yearly. The growth of  the hair depends principally on environment. Thus horses in a warm barn  hare shorter coats than those kept in  a eold barn, etc. Temperature thus  regulates or should regulate," imprepcr  or slighted grooming, a majority of  horses do not shed out early nor completely enough. This heavy coat of  hair causes considerable sweating when  at work. After finishing they come m  with wet coats which may uot dry for  hours. This condition besides being  very uncomfortable exposes them to  vanous diseases, especially pulmonary  =frou bleifof Tfiriand s;  ft nn.  Clipping will overcome these conditions or nearly so.

I verily believe  the Indians worshipped those people,  and if they gave what they had to the  red men. the ludianB shared al^o their  spoils with them. For the sake of  seeing how her gay gowns looked, the  Frish woman gave- ,them to supple-  limbed Indian girls, anTI great was the  joy of all when "they donned them. j  The twins wero running about barefoot, two 'babies had, followed, when  word was sent back that death had  come in quick succession to those in tho  home-land, and tho Irishman was heir  to a great estate. The grief of tho  Indians when the shack was emptied!  It 'was pitiful. And years after, when  thb girl twin came, a^b'ride, to the West,  her first care was to seek the squaws  "who had been kind to my mother  wlie-u she was a bride."  A Scotch Lassie's Story  I had needed a charwoman, and when  I heard thc voice of the one who came,  I stood astounded. Do you know the  soft cadence of the Edinburgh Scotch  totigue? The tones of the scholarly  cUmh that picks out ,each word, like "a  note of music^ .It was beautiful, and  the 'Scotch' woman*, was "saying:   "But  time to look at herself before she left  the train, and one lock had fa Ilea out  of place���������������������������only one, but that ranchman  noticed it.

Behind the English guest stopped her  maid, a trim, piquant little French girl.  Sho was not tired; she had'no one to  meet her; she had taken time to look  at herself, and���������������������������'twas tho maid the  ranchman married.  Ten times a Scotch woman sent home  for house help; not one maid did she  koep for moro than a month. (And  the Government says keep Chinamen  out of the country!

BELL BLOCK.ENDERBY  One would think from the parsimonious way the road work in  the Enderby district is handled  that the B. C. Government were on  the verge of bankruptcy. Last  year eighty thousand dollars were  spent on roads and bridges in the  Okanagan. Of this amount, according to the annual report of  the minister of works, the Enderby, Mabel Lake and Mara districts  received something over $7,000.  There is not a road in the Okanagan more in need of repair than  the road from Enderby to Mabel  Lake. Over this road the mail  stage carries passengers and mail  to Hupel. The A. R. Rogers  Lumber camps are also supplied  over this road. Hence there is  very heavy traffic over it.  Some weeks ago the residents  of that district appealed to the  department at Victoria.  A movement was made to remedy matters.    One man was put to work  to drain the. road and make it  passable at its worst points.   He  is still at work.   He is one of the  best road men in ��������������������������� British Columbia, one having had many years  experience at the work.  But one  man with pick and shovel cannot  make much of an impression on a  road in the condition of this road.  Of course the editor of this paper doesn't know anything about  road work.   No one knows v anything about roadwork except the  road builders.   This point should  be made "clear..  But we hate to think of the hole'  the wage of this one man- is gc-  ing-to make in that $150,000 appropriated by the B.C. Government for road work in the Okanagan. It begins to look as if the  Enderby, Mabel' Lake and Mara  districts were not in the Okanagan.        SUGAR BEETS.  mer months, where conditions are  fairly favorable.  .. "Mangels, sugar mangels and  forage sugar beets may be grown  successfully in all known districts  of Canada from Cape Breton to  the Yukon. They will, in almost  every instance, be found highly  profitable in all parts of the Dominion where milk, beef, pork or  poultry are being produced. The  labour required to grow them is  considerable, but the crop returns  under the average soil and weather conditions are large and of high  feeding value.  "These roots will grow on almost any kind of soil, provided it  is rich in humus or has been recently given a liberal dressing of  barnyard manure. The writer  has-seen excellent crops in the  Ottawa Valley growing on sand,  sandy loam, clayey loam and  black muck land. Probably, the  most uniformly good results may  be expected from clayey loams,  heavy alluvial soils or black muck  areas that are well drained, in  first class tilth and highly fertile.  The roots do well under irrigation  and rainy seasons suit them best."  Slocan Improvements  Dan Brandon is building an addition to his hotel in Silverton.  The cement foundation is laid.  When completed1 it will be one of  the most modern hotels in the  district.  John F. Delaney left Monday  morning for Idaho, where he intends to reside. Mr. Delaney has  been in business in New Denver  for sixteen years, and it is said  cleaned up about . $10,000.���������������������������  Slocan Record.  notice fl  PUBLIC   NOTICE   is hereby given/  that,  under the   authority contained,!  in section 131 of   the "Land Act," a?  regulation has been approved hy the/]  Lieutenant-Governor in Council lixing  the minimum sale prices of first- and  second-class lands at $10 and $5 pew  acre, respectively. <  This    regulation    further   provided  that the prices fixed therein shall apply to all lands with respect to whichv|  the application   to purchase is given  favourable    consideration    after   this  date,   notwithstanding   the   date   of.1)]  such application   or    any, delay that/l  may have occurred   in the considera-^  tion of the same. ,  Further notice is hereby given that  all persons who have pending applications   to   purchase   lands  under tlie  provisions   of   sections   34 and 36 of|  the "Land   Act,"   and   who are noM  willing   to   complete   such purchases^  under the prices fixed by the aforesaid^  regulation shall be at liberty to with-^  draw   such    applications and receive,'*  refund of the moneys deposited 'on, ac-,/j  count of such applications.  ���������������������������      WILLIAM R.

Agr., has just issued  Bulletin No. 67, on the subject of  the growing and using of sugar  beetr, and sugar mangels," and it  is well worth anyone's time to  send for the pamphlet and read  its pages. Says he: "Succulence  and palatability in the ration are  two of the most important factors  ������������������making-=-for=suecessfuHive=s"toclc  feeding and breeding operations  on the farm. There are various  ways of adding these qualities to  a ration, but probably none more  effective and acceptable to almost  all classes of farm animals than  the including of a fair proportion  of roots of some description. Of  thevarious, kinds, of .roots grown, -  or possible of production in Canada, mangels, sugar mangels and  forage sugar beets are, for several reasons, among those to be  most highly recommended. They  are possible of cultivation under  a great variety of conditions as to  soil and climate. They are suitable for and acceptable to almost  all classes of live stock.

New Town Every Day.  By the erid of the coming summer there will be at least one  ���������������������������hundred and seventy new towns  in Canada,  not counting those  which come into existence gradually and in the natural course of  evolution from clusters of houses,  into hamlets and then into towns.  The one hundred and seventy will  all be in the West���������������������������the great, the  glorious West.  Not for them the  humdrum processes of conventional   development;   they will  spring, full panoplied, ,into being  with hotels, courthouses, jails and  all the modern improvements, on  paper, and a small railroad station  a mile, or so of-siding- and unbounded hope and confidence in  the future as actual assets.   The  Canadian Pacific will be responsible for fifty of them, tho Grand  Trunk Pacific for twenty^four,  and the Canadian Northern for  ninety-six.   It is a fair supposition that all of themVill Jive because' of the, fostering care of  their railroad, and that most of  them will prosper because'.the  time has come i'or towns to succeed farms at selected 'locations  on the praries, and the" railroads  are in a better position to do' the  selecting ,than any other instrumentality except.land companies..  Nor will these railroad towns be  the only communities to come into  being in the-West'" in the .next  three or four, months,-but from  their,-number -it- is.possible, to  draw some kind of an impression'  of the method -and the speed of  Western development.7 .-. /l'\C\  No;. More Insanity,   v  an institution where feeble-minded children- shall  be examined  and registered, since if the con- ���������������������������  dition is recognized soon enough,  the child can generally be cured.

N'nw. a British offieor is a British officer all the world over, regardless of  rank, lie may be fi peer or a commoner,  but tiint makes no di!"crea<e tn his  pluck. If he sees a man in dsinijer he  Uoes to heln him. and Major William  Sartorions saw the black sergeant in  peril. He rushed out and saved hiui.in  suite of a deadly fire, and thoy gave him  the   V.C.   for  it.    Not  long afterwards  Lieutenant Lord Gilford got the cross,  for doing all sorts of brave things that  helped Sir Garnet wonderfully; and another officer, Lieutenant Bell, received  the decoration also. '  A rourtk Cross was won by a laace-  sergea'nt of the '12nd, for braverv at  Anioaful, the chief fight on the advasce  to (joomassie. He was badly wounded,  but during the whole of a long and awful day no led his handful'of men  through the bush. His name was Sam  MeGaw. Ho died three or four years  later���������������������������suddenly, I think, from sunstroke.  Five days of almost incessant fighting,  crowned by tho victory of AmoHl'ul and  other triumphs, and we reached Coo-  iniiswie. about a hundred and fifty milea  from the Gold (.'oast, .just, before dark.  l-Sy that lime we were utterly woary;  biit abovo all things wo were almost  mad with thirst and rushed towards the  women who cmue to meet us carrying  immense gourds or e.irthenware pots filled with fresh water. Pour souls! 1 daresay they camo out of their squalid  houses in fear aud trembling, expecting  lo be killed, but they soon found out  that that wasn't thf reason why the  British boldier had been led through  the bush to King Koffee's terrible capital.  Coomassie stood on a sort of hill, and  was tho place where the palace of tho  king was built, and things wore done  which were past belief in their barbarity  and horror,, When that night was over  we had .1 chance of looking round tho  place, and no words can tell the horrors  we saw on every hand. .Bad as the  swamp ha-rt been ou the march it seemed  to b<- worse in t.'ooma^sic.

Tt i-eemed fo me that  the wuy tho thing was liandled was to  U:a-ve it ptanding and then thuni]> on the  lot1 and make a' horrible- eommovion  while the king's executioner plied his  cnennous dec-orated sword and chopped  heads off almost as fast as you eould  count. In tho wretched place"-thuy called the king's pa tyee there was a fetish-  comer, a kind of altar for saennoes,  with all sorts of skins and objects nailed  uy.' 11s charms against ovilspiriM. Tho  place was almost Like a blae.k.sumb 's  simfchy. tho pile of heads and bones aad  orbhne-nte taking tbe place of the firo.  ^  V/fl could not moro in that eivy of  ~dre.adf.Tii death . without- coming across  signs of human sacrifices and suffering.  '{ am not dwelling on these'thiuga because their remembrance is" a pleasure,  but to show what wrong things wo had  .to put' right. -When wo went out lo  Ashanti there were so many kind-hearted folk who had such a lot of uuuoccs-  sruw pity for the poor heathen we were  going to tight. Poor henthen. indeed:  V/han aoout his cruelty towards tho������������������e  ponr'-r than himself and his wholesale  oias.-.^d'e of the'm!  It was a glad sight indeed when the  good old Union Jack was run up a long  staff," and' fluttered out in Hie deafh-  l'ldon air. There wan a symbol of freedom and fair dealing for you���������������������������waving  over the horrid saemd stool and t-h������������������  awful drum that had beaten so many  death knells. The eyes of some of the  well meaning people at home would have  opened wide enough if they could have  se^n what it meant to the slaves and  the down-trodden wretehts of Ashanti to  have British soldiers in the place and  the   UMon  Jack   Hearing from  thc  fal'  i pole,  1     But thc.-o was a brighter side to on.  layin' " money���������������������������just over ten guiaeais  in all. Of course, it seemed a fair  amount to au ordinary soldier, es_������������������ecially  one of the old Crimean school like my  self; but it was little enough when you  remember the sort of country we wore  fighting in and the kind of enemy we  had to fight.  Oh, yes! Some of us had gold with u&  when we were marching from Coomassie.  There were gold ornaments and rich embroideries piled up in what you would  call the cn.ef btieet of the place, because Sir Garnet was sotting tiro to the  palace and the town generally, as part  of the king's punishment.  King Koffee had bolted to a place  some miles off, aud 1 think that a good  many' of his wives���������������������������he had more limn  three thousand of them, they say���������������������������had  gone with him. A lesson had to be  taught him, and Ihib destruction was- &"ir  Garnet's way of teaching it.  The gold and silver ornaments vt'erc  collected before the buildings weie set  on. (ire, and strict orders were given tuat  no soldier wa������������������ to help himself to loot  It was given oui that a strict search  would be made. There was to be prize  money at the proper time, and so there  was, but very Utile. It needs something  more than frail human beings, however,  to obey ordera at a time like that, and  I saw men wrench precious door-knobH  off.  I did not go quite so far as that, but  1 managed to get a few little articles,  such as bracelets and rings���������������������������beautiful,  pure gold���������������������������and  bring them away  with  no. I have not one of them left; 1 part-  e I with them ail long ago.  There weie other men." though, who  i-iiiini away with good hauls of precious  utieles. bec'iiise, after all, no search was  mile' whim we worn clear of C'ooninssic.  The great thing to do was to get out of  e.e awful, 'death-deaiing. pesiiloutinl region and back to the, good air of tin-  -on and the open yky.  DJR1V1NG  .Judging from what ono can glean  from c.-iaiiy 1 observation, very little at-  cnlioJi .is paid in rural districts. Vi  ���������������������������he ma 11 nor in which horses are driven,  in fact, tho subject is treated as one  .ipon whieh^no instruction is necessary,  .��������������������������������������������� ono about .which' rhere i* little, if  anything, fo learn.  Young people of the farm just take  fo it, a.s they take to many other every-  lay things that must necessarily be  lone, with practically no instruction  fiom anybody. 'J'hat thoy get along in  .mm., sort of"a way, there is no doubt.  is Ihey manage to do their work and  iret about.  This would lead'one to enquire if  'here is anything much in driving, or  whether .it is n subject worth ijtudyiug^  and cultivating a knowledge of. ^ i  As a:~"m������������������t-te.r of fact, there is a' good  leal to learn about it, and' the differ-  oueo. between a slipshod driver and an  expert oitp-is immeasurable.  One hay only tn take an opportunity  of observing tho dilfereucoMn the performance of the same h'orfio when driven by nn inuudrivated driver arid" then  by aii expert.oue, to realize that, there  is much to leprn about driving.  This is" pretty generally recognized,  when fho object is to bring out the  speed of a horse;.-but when speed and  action are aimed at, the expert driver  ean eaufe a perfect transformation of  an animal, when compared with a performance given  by an  unskilled one.  There is undoubtedly such a thing as  an aptitude i'or driving. Some persons  could never become really skilful, drivers, no mattor how much they cultivate  il, as they are tern paramenia Ily unfitted for high-class work of this kind.  They might become fairly good drivers,  but "never experts, There i������������������ something  about the nervous organization of some  individuals that gives them a delicacy  of touch, or what is called "good  hands, aa applied to drivers, that confer upon them a special aptitude for  driving.

The wlipslmd driver is wry much  in evidence behind work hor.v>s. You  see them driving n pair wilh one horse  ahead of the other; he is *iinpl.v holding fhe ruins, not driving at .ill. He  makes no attempt to keep the draff of  belli hor������������������es even; he does not f������������������Kd their  moot hi-, keep them collected and balanced.  Whether a horse is pulling a load or  going behind a " foolspace,'' he should  be kept "collected," as he does his  work more comfortably, and does not  fatigue so easily.  A tiers* is "collected" when his  head is kept in position, and all tho  muscle!- of his body are in n state of  contract inn. When ." man i< running  or walking fast, no do.���������������������������<,.���������������������������* ids h.iruls by  contrai u..g fhe nr.iscles of the arms  and hands, in order to keep himself  collected. If he did not do so, propulsion would cause him greater effort.  Po with the horse, if he is exerting  himself either in travelling or in" pull-  in jr. a heavy load, light hut. steady  pressure on the bit assists him in keeping collected  and  ' ilniu-od.  I.oo.-o-rein drivers never improve a  carriage of the head and neck, and are  ���������������������������1.11 to snoil his gait bv getting him  into the habit of "hitching."  liv keeping 11 hoi>e collected and  liala'ncr.l. tho fore legs are not so apt  to suffer from the ill-effects of con  ni^i"   and strain.  If the head is kept up and the nose  in, in travelling, the fore leg* a.r������������������ relieved to somo extent, as more weight  is then thrown on the hind extreniitiea.  Heavy-handed drivers also inftict ������������������uek  injury on a' horse, and cause him mno4  discomfort. They are apt to make kife  inouth sore, get him into bad kabits M  connection- witk that organ, suck u  side-liuiug, pulling, tongue lolling, etav,  and cause him'to-mix his gaitB.  The driver's aim should bo t������������������ manipulate the roins with a light, but ir������������������  and steady hand. ������������������  It is usually necessary to exert m������������������r������������������  force in manipulating tho reins ii  speeding a horse, in order to stead)1  him, but injury to the mouth etui  usually bo avoided by lining ������������������.u ea������������������f  and comfortable bit,  Tho skilful driver is always careful  to observe if tho bit is in the propot  pofiition in the mouth of the horse h������������������  is driving. If it is too low, he will not  force it firmly, and he is apt to get hie  tongue over il. It it is too high, hi  will not readily respond to the pressure  of it, and consequently ho is apt bo  pull, cross his jaws, open his mouth,  and project his tongue.  Placing a bit too high in the mouth  is a very fertile cause of getting s  horse��������������������������� info bad habits in connoctioa  wilh the mouth, aud is apt to spoil tho  carriage of  his head  and  neck.  The manner of holding the roing  and whip, and the posture of the driver, aro of much moment in skilful  driving.  It has boon found but by experience and study of the art-of driving  that the reins should be held in a certain way in order to contribute to th*  case, grace, safety,, and dexterity of  the dii ver.  Some drivers who have not lie*������������������  taught this way of driving in thoir  youth, find it hard to adopt it in Iat������������������  life, and scoff al the idea of there being  a "best way,"- "as they g>a along  very well in the way thoy picked up  themselves," but Ihey never make  finished driven?. There, is a great deal  of difference between the manner oi  holding the reins when driving trottore  and ordinary driving', especially whes  curb bits are used, and style is sought,  for.  In the former case, the driver aa  sumes an attitude .-and holds the roin>  in a manner so that he can exert'-'all  his force in controlling and steadviiig.  He braces himself, with logs t-l retched,  forward and aims extended, with &  rein running overctthe palm of either  fingers, with the straight whip carried  in the right  hand.  Di ordinary driving, especially whea  a curb-bit i.s used, the reins should fed  separated with the first-two lingers of  the left hand, the ends passing oh1 itf  the Lower part of it.'

Could  anything be more fascinating  than  the display in  the milliners' shops at this  very  moment f    Tho bright ribbona and  feathrrs, the  more  eta* natural looking plumes,  the original ahapes���������������������������tome,  it  Muat be confessed, rather eceentric, others attractively picturesque, and a choice few practical, becoming and smart���������������������������  Ejsent au almost irresistible temptation to the woman who  es te be well costumed.  The same anxious question asked whenever any new hats  mm exhibited: Will large or small hats be more popular!  b answered in the uhiihI way, "Both will bo fashionable."  #ne woman whose taste in dress is unqueetiened has just  returned from Paris with her customary number of hats for  epring and summer���������������������������incidentally these Wave to be supple-  vented at intervals later in the season���������������������������and every hat she  laa brought ever ia flat and large.    Another woman, equally  ���������������������������ft  Gray Crin Hat witk Aigrette  fashionable and also" distinguished for, her taste hi drees,  ���������������������������hb brought over,only small high shapes.    So what are the  rank and file of womankind to dot   If they are sensible they  - will buy most carefully this season, choosing only such, shapes  and colors as are becoming, and there is such a diversity in  v ttyla thattkia can readily be accomplished. ���������������������������  - '.

The.fashion-is universally^accept-,  "ed," for the moment, in whicn the hair is arranged-without  the pompadour, or with only a small oue.    There ia a craze���������������������������  -7������������������o other-word expreaBes,it���������������������������for .the hair to be worn drawn  down over the ears. * Not one woman ia a hundred looks well  - la thi* style of hairdressing, so it is-modified'.tremendously,  and the best compromise shows .a soft fulness of waved hair,  ���������������������������ot drawn too tightly back "from the face, bat leaving the  ears fret.  .-Many., of. the, newest hat6 have been designed for -the  severed ears and are.intended to be worn covering the entire  head, but this is too trying a fashion and ie-modified to a  great extent; .at the same time the "close fitting shapes are  attractive, if not too close nor too small. The way trimming  id plaeed i* all important in these styles, the high standing  aneurled feathers at the bacx are very smart, and the spreading aigrette, apparently growing out of the bask of tbe smali  - fnrban, is quite distinctive. Both theao.hats are in turban  shape with velvet faced brim.      " ,  ~ A charmingly picturesque and almost invariably beeeining  /shapeia on the Charlotte, Corday, or mab eap, order,'which  ������������������*Yer goes entirely out' of fashion, but every season appears  Is'some form or other.- Until'late inthe spring it is made  with velvet crown and pleated lace brim, .for midsummer, in  'Nile and la������������������o or'all lace, aud is most of all attractive when  the black' lace brim has an inner ruffle of white laee.    A  ���������������������������luster of soft ostrich plumes at one side makes the hat mere  elaborate in detail and more expensive, and almost the same  elect is obtained with the double bow of ribbon, lace or  tulle.   At the moment the crown of this shape is unuaually  ^htrgepbttt^then-the^entire^hat^is^on^a-^large-scal*.,- - -   : ���������������������������   . _  - One of the most practical hats is that made with bowb  eft ribbon or of straw. All stiaw is now so beautifully  woven aud so pliable that it can be treated as though it were  a material like silk, satin or velvet, and close fitting turbans  and toques made of tho wide braids that' are apparently  wrapped around the head and tied at the side or in front in  wide bows are most attractive. Vinese hats are ia all eolors.  There is a most becoming shndo of red that is extremely  attra������������������fcivo softened by an additional bow of black velvet  tibbon.twisted in with straw, but tho same model h ofleativo  ' ia blue or.black ������������������Jso._ ,..',.  Dark straw hats with bows "of." fancy ribbon and 'with  trims faced with velvet aro fashionable this spring, and there  are many variations in the same style. It is oslv a passing  fa-shion, "however, "and not so practical as might be theught,  for light ribbons deface quickly, but for the woman who  ���������������������������au buy what she likes whon she likes the purchase Is a  good one. The forced to be economical purchaser will  scloct the same model, but will havo it earned out on more  practical lines���������������������������in darker colors, for instance���������������������������or will have  the ribboa bows adjusted in such a manner that they cam be  replaecd by fresh oues when necessary.  hats do not seem it* work out well in the new shapes, but a  little Inter will undoubtedly be improved upon aad made  more beeoatiitg.  The woman with a small income really suffers at this  time of the year, if with the small income she has a keen love  for dress, for the shops, when every detail of dress seems  more attractive than at any other time of year, partly on  account of the colorings aud material** that seem so suited  to the bright sunshine aud warm weather.  A spring hat is a necessity. With all the determination  possible to economize most strictly, the wintor hut not only  looks badly but in uncomfortable, ho that a change must be  made when once a higher record o* the thermometer is registered and the wearing of winter clothes becomes impossible.  The first huts that are exhibited by those establishments  that rHter to the Southern ri'Bort trade are always high priced  ���������������������������quite too high priced for the majority of womcu. Then  at thc department store** are exhibited the expensive models  nl80, but with the addition of a large stock of inexpensive  one* nnd quantities of untriinmed shapes. Here is a dnn-  gerous quicksand. The comparatively low cost of the  "shape" and also the low price of many of the trimmings  appeal irresistibly to the woman who has a taste for millinery  and has been credited by admiring friends with great skill  iu making her own bats, She invests iu at least two or three  of these bargains with their accompanying trimmings aud  does not realize at the moment that the sum total she has  paid exceeds what the cost of an already made and smarter  hat will amount to. ,  It is a mistake to buy the spring bat toe early, when  every penny has to be counted. The fashions in hats change  so often that before there is a chance to wear it^another quite  different shape will be far" more fashionable. On the other  hand, if there is a hat that is becoming and smart at.any  reasonable price to be found in advance of the season, it is a  good investment, and there is nothing more delightful tbnn  to be possessed of a smart hat when the weather suddenly  turns warm. But not to be led into senselesB outlay if the  wiser enure to pursue, and the one smart black uat bought  now will solve the problem far better than to besome possessed of three or four of different colors.  *    ������������������    *  r - >  At this season of the year when all kinds of bargain sales  are tempting the women of the country, it is a mistake to  overlook the advantages that are offered in the glove sales.  There may not be the same radical changes every two or  three months that there are in other articles of dress^ but.  nevertheless, there are changes which make it imperative  that the balance of stock on hand be disposed of to make  room for the new importations.  Nothing is more foolish than to invest heavily in any  eceentric or ,even unusual style of glove. Black or 'white  for full dress and heavy tan or gray for. street wear is  by far the safest plan to follow. At the moment there is a  demand for tan suede gloves in the. light shades for full  dress, while the lighter shades of gray are also popular/ but  fthese are all on theexpensive order. * <.  - The prudent woman invests now is the elbow length'silk  glove and the yellow.wash kid in preparation for the Bummer,  as these are the only comfortable glove to wear and can now  be bought at half price, She also includes the elbow length  white glaee kid in her purchase, for these are really "marked  down."

Among thc documents captured were  lists of proposed delegates, draft letters of invitation, aud a complete programme of the congress. Among tke  interesting subjects on which papers  were to be read and discission had  were: "Tho use of explosives as com-  pnred with electrical appliances in the  new skeleton keyopcuing of B������������������foe,''  "Methods of concealment in inhabitod  house," "Tho new skeleton key,"  "New forms of locks,". "A noiseless  file,"- etc. ;  This was unquestionably the most  elaborate attempt ever made te raise  burglary to tke status ef a profession.  Nor was there involved in the plan so  much danger as might at first appear;  had the congress been convened, it is  doubtful if the police ������������������ould have done  more than disperse it as a "disorderly  gathering"; iu every civilized country  pio'secution must be for a speeific violation of the law, and the mere assembling of'the burglars would have  constituted no crime.

Some  ef the most charming hats are white with blaek trimming  ���������������������������.sd vice vers*. The brim, edged with black velvet or faced  witk it, .and the black velvet bows may not be strikingly  novel or original, but are most becoming and smart, while  an all blaek hat that might seem too sombre is tramsformed  by the white wings or feathers. Fancy black straw braid,  with just an edge of velvet or binding to the brim and with  a full white aigrette or two or three long oetrieh plumes, the  shape on tho old three corner order, is very smart, while* the  larger shape, with brim turned up at the left, is an old  favorite for those who have a fancy for the pietareaxjue  stylet.  Unless for a stay at mome Southern resort, the hirge hat*  ef straw and lace seem a trifle "previous," but they certainly are fascinating and hard to resist, and, after all, why  aet buy them now and have the question settled? The smartest are on the old order, large in size, wide of brim and with  low crown; the lace on the brim falls over in soft and be-  ���������������������������eming fashion, while the top of the hat is eoverod with thr  ���������������������������aost beautiful flowers of every hno. The brim is faeocl  with black velvet, if becoming, or with some eolor that it-  bscoming. The flowers." can-be of. any description, but it te  suite a fad to have two or three different kinds together, and  ���������������������������he smaller sized flowers are chosen in preference.  There are not so many flower hats as usual exhibited thip  spring, and those that are have a veiling ef tulle or lace.

In wet weather it givew and becomes a little limp, just as roal flower* do, but when the sun  comes out it crisps, ro-a������������������jserts itoelf, and takes on a new leaso  of life and beauty.  The Japanese artificial iowor makeru, than whom there  aro no more skilful manipulators, have of recent years beon  sending to this country extraordinary imitations of such  flowers as Occidentals ineBt affect. The particular species  that the Japanese are now imitating are tho American Beauty the Bridesmaid, and La Prance. An' exquisite white  species called the BTaiaerin they aro now also beginning to  imitate.  The Japanese artificial roses are bo cleverly made that  they almost defy detection. The process followed by the  Japanese is M fellows:  from the stems of shrubs abounding in Japan they take  the pith, whieh they pass through eertain chemicals capable  of preserving it for all time. Later it is shaved off in pieccb  uo thicker than a rose's potals, dentod carefully into shape,  and then colored. In si������������������������������������pmhling these netals; tho greatest  oare and oxaetneee are shew*.  Nor is tho scent, which tne Japanese regard as the soul  of a flower, ov������������������rlo������������������kcd. The majority of these imitation  roses have quito a delectable perfume, exactly corresponding to that of the real flower. The stems of the roBes arc  admirably made, but it must bo acknowledged that wit'i  the leaves success has not been fully attained, although  they are far above the standard of ordinary imitation flowers,  Theso roses are used for decorativo purposes in the home;  they are seen adorning hats or gowns. Many a drawing-  room, however, shows them arising from exquisite porcelain or silver vaseo, while tho casual observer never dreams  that they aro other than real flowers. The cost of such imitations is about one dollar each.  At a slightly higher cost large bunches of imitation violets can also be bought. These, it is said, are made ef the  pieces of pith tee swill to be seed fer the rose petals.

If it is making a pile  of money, most of us can't do it.  We havn't the gift. Like the  poet Heine we might say: "If it  rained silver as it once did manna, all I should get would be  dents in the head."  If success is achieving power  or fame, most of us are counted  out at the start. There isn't  genius enough to go around. If  there were it wouldn't be genius.  We are jus.t common folks,  living in our little corners of the  world, doing our share of plain,  every-day work, voting when  election day comes, and of no particular account to any save those  who happen to love us.  Still, we are important to ourselves. -Every moment of our  brief lives is precious to us. The  centre of the universe (for us) is  right where we stand. And we  are as keen to make a success of  life as the man with a billion and  the man whose name is on "every  lip.  Well, then, do these three  things:  Do your work as well as you  can, "right- up to the handle."  Do it lovingly, like a consecrated  man. Make your work a prayer!  Use your vote and your influence to help the world along toward -better tliii;������������������-\ Fight for  men! Let money and property  look out for themselves. Fight  for men���������������������������for men, women and  children!  ��������������������������� Love your folks ! Love is the  only reality, -If you do good  work", it will be because you love  it.. If you vote for human good  it will be because ' you love humanity. But, anyhow, love your  folks���������������������������the little wife, the babies,  the old" mother and-father���������������������������anybody that.belongs to you. And  love 'em good and "hard !
