Fashion Innovation Is Here

Against So Many Surgical Op-
erations. How Mrs. Bethune
and Mrs. Moore Escaped.
Sikes ton, Mo.—"For seven years I suf-
fered everything. 1 was in bed for four
or five days a* a time
every month, and so
weak I could hardly
walk, i cramped and
had backache and
headache, anil was
so nervous and \vi ak
that 1 dreaded to see
anyone or have any-
one move in the room.
The doctors gave me
uu,r.'imw,w medicine to ease me
at those times, and said that 1 ought to

have an operation. I would not listen to
that, and when a friend of my husband
told him about Lydia E. Pinkham’s Veg-
etable Compound and w hat it had done
for his wife, I was willing to take it
Now 1 look the picture of health and feel
like it, too. 1 can do my own housework,
hoe my garden, and milk a cow. 1 can
entertain company and enjoy them. I
can visit when 1 choose, and walk as far
as any ordinary woman, any day in the
month. I wish I could talk to every
suffering woman and girl."—Mrs. Dema
Bethune, Sikeston, Mo.
Murrayville, 111.—"I have taken Ly-
dia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound
for a very bad case of female trouble
and it made me a well woman. My
health was all broken down, the doctors
said I must have an operation, and I was
ready to go to the hospital, but dreaded it
so that 1 began taking your Compound.
I got along so well that I gave up the
doctors •’d w us «a red from the opera-
tion.’’- - Charles Moore, R. R.

1 The New York Times of March 23,
1912. In an article dealing with Cana-
da’s progress, says:
“At the present moment eight ship-
loads of European immigrants are I
afloat for Canada, while there are
signs that the outward movement
which is customary with us during
labor troubles will be marked this
year. There is no such startling rec-
ord of our loss to Canada. Our citi- I
sens quietly slip over the border in
groups or trainloads, but their going
is not advertised.
“There in no mystery why Canada
is the 'good thing* tbi United ItfttM
used to be. It is because Canada is
following in its neighbor’s footsteps
thft it in repeating the fortunate ex
lierienco which its neighbor is envy-
ing. even while deliberately turning
its back on the teachings of the past
A fortnight ago the Dominion budget
speech reported the unprecedented
surplus of $39,000,000. and on Thurs
day the Government pasted through
the Committee on Supply credits of
$38,000,000 for railways ami canals
With this assistance the railways
themselves are both enabled and com-
pelled to Increase their facilities. Ac
cordingly we find a single road allot

Naturally the Canadian newspapers
contain announcements calling for
fifty thousand men for construction
work This influx is apart from those
Americans who go with money In their
poCitets obtained by cashing in their
high-priced American lands.
“A St Paul dispatch says that with-
in a fortnight two thousand carloads
of farm animals and machinery have
passed toward Canada, the property
of men who expect to pay for their
farms with the first crop.”

The handle of the parasol suggests the canes carried by the men. The
style evidently was originated to carry out this idea. Fundamentally,
though, It is of the Directoire period. The parasol Is of white silk with
a broad black velvet band and silk fringe. When folded up, It can be car-
ried like a cane.
DAINTIEST OF TABLE LINEN
Most Elaborate and Expensive le
That In Use in Parisian
Table linen In Paris today Is of the
most elaborate and expensive descrip-
tion. Teacloths are made almost en-
tirely of lace composed of squares
with Insertions of finest embroidery, I
and serviettes and napkins must also \
match the cloth. Another expensive
habit is to have all the crystals In j
colored Bohemian cut glass to match j
the hue of the hostess’ afternoon
At a recent reception given by a
society leader harmony of color was !
very successfully carried out. Plates, (
glasses and decanters were of pink
cut crystal, while the lady of the house
wore a teagown of rosecolored mous-
seline de sole. The color scheme was
alRo preserved In the flowers on the
table, and long-stemmed pink roses
were everywhere about the room.
A wealthy host the other day, ac-
cording to the Crl de Paris, prepared
a surprise for his guests by an elab-
orate "sea fantasy" built up as a ta-
ble center, with shrimps and tiny eels
swimming about In the miniature
Six women in Chicago have organ-
ized a club to K-ssen household cares.
The club is the possessor of an elec-
tric vacuum cleaner, one electi. wash-
ing machine, two electric Irons and a
fan for drying the washing.
The unit dues are those required for
the upkeep of these labor savers, and
this amount has been estimated to be
about three cents a week. The Initia-
tion fee consists of the price of the ap-
paratus divided Into six equal parts.
The members arrange their work so
that a small boy may take the appara-
tus around to each in turn. They live
in one neighborhood, so the affair is
easily arranged How practical: how
easily the idea could be explained to
take in any number of housekeepers.
What a help It would be in solving the
servant problem. — American Club
In the decade from 19»1 to 1910,the
death rate from tuberculosis In the
United StateH declined from 196.9 for
each 100,000 persons living to 160.11, a
decrease of 18.7 per cent., while the
general death rate. Including all cases
of death, declined only otie-lialf as fast,
or at the rate of 9.7 per cent., from
1665.0 to 1695.8, according to figures
(given out by the National Association
lor the Study and Prevention of Tu-
berculosis. The figures are based on
data abstracted from the reports of
the United States bureau of the cen-
sus, and cover the registration area
of this country. According to the
statement, the tuberculosis death rate
has declined steadily since 1904, when
it was 201.6. On the other hand, the
general death rate shows a fluctuation
downward in general trend, but not as
steady as the tuberculosis rate. The
decline in the tuberculosis death rate
In the last ten years means a saving
of 27,000 lives at the present time.
Substitute for Third Degree.
A New York dentist advocates
laughing gits as a substitute lor the
police third degree. He believes that
this, the least dangerous of anesthet-
ics. lays o|h it what already Is in the
ntlnd, unconscious of the search for
its secrets. He believes that If a
ntan who has committed a serious
crime should be questioned about it
! during a certain stage of recovery
from nitrous oxide, or laughing gas
anaesthesia, he would not only reply
i and truthfully, but half a minute Inter
; be would realize fully what he had

For the Young Girl’s Eye.
There Is nothing more beautiful
than simplicity of character. It is
honest, frank and attractive. How
different Is affection! The simple
minded are always natural; they are
at the same time original. The af-
fected are never natural. As for orig-
inality, if they ever had it, they have
crushed It out and burled It from sight
utterly. Be yourself. To attempt to
be anybody else is worse than folly.
It Is Impossible to attain It. A genu-
ine cent Is worth more than a counter-
feit dollar, and the smallest person
who is real, is worth more than the
biggest fraud in existence. Let the
• fabric of your character, though ever
•o humble, be at least real.
The subtlety of the color harmonies
of fabrics, combined with multi-col-
ored embroideries of the evening
gowns, are quite sensational this sea-
son. Take, for Instance, two shades
of soft gray chiffon marquisette. It
Is wonderful what effect can be creat-
ed by the graceful draping. Then an
emerald green tulle over Jeweled em-
broidered satin, which was shown at
a recent exhibition, had a suggestion
of Tltanla’s gossamer draperies. An-
other gown suggestive of mystery and
the East was In sapphire blue nlnon,
opening over a side panel of embroid-
ered Parma violet silk.
A regal white satin and diamond
evening gown, with narrow lace
trimmed train, which had a black note
in the velvet how at the waist and tall
40 | feather headdress, was very striking.

BABY'S ECZEMA AND BOILS
"My son was about three weeks old
when I noticed a breaking-out on his
cheeks, from which a watery sub-
stance oozed. A short time after, his
arms, shoulders and breast broke out
also, and in a few days became a solid
scab. I became alarmed, and called
our family physician who at once pro-
nounced the disease eczsma. The lit-
tle fellow was under treatment for
about three months. By the end of
that time, he seemed no better. 1 be-
came discouraged. I dropped the doc-
tor’s treatment, and commenced the
use of Cuticura Soap and Ointment,
and In a few days noticed a marked
change. The eruption on his cheeks
was almost healed, and his shoulders,
arms and breast were decidedly bet-
ter. When he was about seven months
old. all trace of the eczema was gone.
"During his teething period, his
head and face were broken out in
bolls which 1 cured with Cuticura
Soap and Ointment. Surely he must
have been a great sufferer. During
the time of teething and from the time
I dropped the doctor's treatment, I
used the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment, nothing else, and when two
years old he was the picture of health.
His complexion was soft and beauti-
ful, and his head a mass of silky curls.
I had been afraid that he would never
bo well, and I feel that I owe a great
deal to the Cuticura Remedies."

“And where, my fellow citizens," ap-

find an instrument so fit, so delicate,
so adjustable, and at the same time
so unassuming and popular that it

Simplest Way of All.
The following story the Saturday
Evening Post says 1b told of Col.
George W. Goethals, who at the time
it took place was an instructor in en-
gineering at West Point.
One day. in a recitation he gave out
this question to a class of cadets:
"The post flagpole, sixty feet high,
has fallen down. You are ordered by
your < omnianding officer to put It up
again. You have under your command
a sergeant and ten privates of the en-
gineer corps. How would you get ibe
pole back Into place?”
Each cadet, after long consideration
and much figuring over the derricks,
blocks, tackle and so on, evolved a
"No,” said Goethals, “you are all
wrong. You would stmply say: 'Ser-
geant, put up that flagpole!”’
It was a Welsh minister who de-

Genuine Maple Sugar.
There are few people outside the
maple sugar making districts, says a
writer In the Country Gentleman, who
really know what the genuine article
tastes like. The superior flavor thus
spoken of Is probably due in a de-
I gree to the same causes that make
i strawberries eaten off the vine and
cherries consumed on the tree so de-
lectable. The w riter quoted, however,
puts some of the blame for the poor
flavor of commercial maple sugar on
the "wily wholesale dealer and mixer.”
