Ail White—Pretty Brooches
Needle-books rank among those
small articles that can be made in
simre moments from almost any little
remnants of material and should not
be forgotten when work is being pre-
pared for bazars
We give, therefore, a sketch of a
dainty little article of this description

being cut in a novel way and tin a fancy pattern carried into the two

As to shirtwaist colors, we will
not he able to escape ull white, and
a fresh white waist certainly gives a
business woman a neat and smart
look when employed with her duties;
hut all white is lar le.-s smart than a
fabric Introducing the gown color in
some manner, and as a standby one

suit would he invaluable. Tills cornea
In very handy for rainy days and for
the moment when a white w aist would
seem a lit tie too commonplace, for
with a change of neck lixing the get-
up can he made far more dressy.
Among the smart wash shirtings
whose patterns match the colors ot
the new suit materials are madras
and cheviot, the browns, blues and
plum tones of the pin stripes, checks
and dots and diamonds showing up
very handsomely against the white
background. Shirts in these fabrics
are always laundered without starch
and very often the neck finish is in
the form of a soft stock with ends
made for a four in-liand tie. Stiff linen
collars are likewise worn with solt-
laundered shirts, and with silk and
flannel ones, but the woman who has
the beauty of her throat in mind pre-
fers the more pliable stock of the
shirt material or of Irish lace, for al-
though a lace neck lixing takes away
something of tlie distinction of a tail-
design is worked in pale pink silk,

Diagram “1),’’ on the right hand
side of the sketch, gives the floral de-
sign in detail and shows the way in
which it may be worked. The case is
lined with pale pink soft silk and fit-
ted inside with a number of “leaves”
of flannel cut into points at the edges
and secured in their place with a fine
eilk cord tied together at the hack of
the book, the ends being knotted and
frayed out into tiny tassels. Diagram
“A” shows the interior of the book.
The cover should he stiffened with
two pieces of cardboard sewn in be-
tween the silk and the lining, and in
making the hook, these can be sewn i
together and the book firmly stitched,
down the center, then the two pieces
of card can he slipped in in the man-,
ner shown in diagram “13,” and the
lower edge sewn together.

TO THE DEMOCRATS OF TULSA
AIM TO SUIT INDIVIDUALITY

It Is almost unconsciously that one
notices that the shop windows which
\ make our cities so spectacular and de-
! lightful are showing prophetic visions
of what we are to be within ever so
short a time. A gaily colored hat of
soft olive and old gold holds us fas-
cinated. tVe long for the will power
- to walk on, hut it lingers in our mem-
; ory. How often has the woman of
courage admitted that she could have
: passed by bravely any other hat, but
| the peculiar fascination and need of
J that one had held her fast! Yet why
should she hesitate when she sees
| what suits her taste and individual
1 style? The woman who would be well
dressed must consider seriously colors
that, blend with her hair, her eyes, and
her general appearance; for the girl
and woman of golden coloring brown
and the soft shades of green are never
failing delights, while silver grayg and
olives cannot help hut tempt the for-
tunate possessor of gray hair.—Har-
1 take this method of announcing
that I will ask the Democrats of Tulsa
County for the nomination of County
Judge at the Democratic primary In
August. In view of the fact that this
primary is some months’ distant, it
may appear that this action is some-
what premature, and that to burden
the attention of the busy citizens of
this county with the respective claims
of various candidates, at this early
date, is neither wise nor proper. But
it has been my observation that the
average and intelligent voter desires
ample time to investigate and consider
the merits of every man who offers
himself as a candidate; therefore, to
the end that the voters may know
whom they should support, an early
announcement is not at all unwise
With those citizens of this county,
with whom 1 am personally acquaint-
ed, I feel it unnecessary to discuss my
qualifications or the merits of my can-
didacy. To those with whom I have
not the pleasure of a personal ac-
quaintance, it is proper to say that
1 have been a resident of what is now
Tulsa County for nearly nine years,
during all of which time, 1 have lived
in the City of Tulsa and have been
actively engaged in the practice of
law. Therefore I feel I have a knowl-
edge of conditions, gained from ex-
perience in this county, both before
and since statehood, which ought to
he useful in case I am elected. While
1 have a profound regard for the just
judge and the righteous court, yet I
hold the position that all courts and
judges, both high and low, are merely
servants of the people. I never saw
the halo which seems to many to en-
circle the brow of the man on the
bench, therefore in the event of elec-
tion, I will not bo bothered with any
preconceived unduly exalted notions
concerning that official position. In
that event, it will be my sole and only
aim to make the County Court of ser-
vice to every citizen who may have
occasion to use it.
1 have never sought or held public
office—except one year as City Re-
corder, elected on the Democratic
ticket, when Tulsa was considerably
less of a city than now. Whether or
not I am qualified for the position to
which I aspire, is a matter which I
leave for investigation on the part of
the voter and such investigation I wel-
come. My record, whatever the same
may be, has been made heer and is
easily ascertainable from friends,
neighbors and business associates
among whom I have lived in this
County. I earnestly desire the sup-
port of every Democrat and will make
an active campaign, endeavoring to
meet each voter before the primary

The Blocking at the Front of This
Waist Gives a Little Chance for
ored waist the Irish stocks are much
For little extra occasions, when the
silk four-in-hand tie seems scarcely
dressy enough, there are charming
butterfly hows in plain and iace-edged
muslin and net, and girls who know
how to make their own little neck
fixings often turn these out from
bordered handkerchiefs and make
them in a way so that they wash with-
out hurt. The pretty little brooches
and bows with ends of satin flowers
are still gayer neck fixings, and, be-
sides being in excellent taste for oc-
casional wear, these are easily made
at home from any little fragment of
gay satin or ribbon.
Making Irish Crochet.
A clever woman, who supports her-
self by making Irish crochet lace at
odd moments, always learns to make
the new patterns first by doing the
work with a coarse hoop and fine
When thoroughly familiar with the
Intricacies of the pattern, she can do
the work with the fine thread with-
out danger to her eyesight and very
much more rapidly than It could be
done if she was working on an en-
tirely new design.
The coarse lace made of the wrap-
ping cord is used to trim linen and
cretonne covers for the bureau and
AYiien she wishes to copy a new pat-
tern from a small illustration in a
book or magazine, she uses a power-
ful magnifying glass. Then the
Btitches can be counted without any
trouble or without danger of straining
Filet and cross-stitch work are
treated in the same manner.

Fhlch was stolen from the Louvre, In
Paris, with the parted hair in front
.nd the large flat knots at either side
entirely covering the ears and ex-
tending down to the neck.
The bang or fringe effect continues
to be popular. A Dutch effect in hair-
Iresslng has the hair parted from the
orehead to the nape of the neck, with
knots Just covering tho ears, and has
nserted underneath tho hair divisions
it the front an unusually long and
heavy added piece In the form of a
hang extending to the eybrows.
An unusual charm for the neck or

In diameter, gold rimmed and with
double crystal sides. This frames the
brilliant wings of a tropical butterfly,
Dne facing each crystal. The color-
ing Is vivid and beautiful and the
Regarding the long coat, the length
varies. There are coats that are cut
away from the waist line in front and
extend to the bend of the knee in the
back; others that extend half way to
the knee, and are cut straight around
the bottom and still others, quite long,
that are open up the front, showing
the skirt to the waist line, above
which they are slightly double

For the Hair.
Fashioned brooches or cam-
eos will make exquisite hair or-

cameo may fasten a bandeau of
pink metallic ribbon. Or a lapia

match may ornament a bandeau
made of king's blue tulle. Pearl
brooches and earrings look well

The head gent” of a t. t. t. show
playing at Holton recently handed out
a warm one to the audience. There
was so much going on In Holton that
night that the theatrical business suf-
fered, but the aforesaid "gent” seemed
to think that the people did not ap-
preciate the high class histrionic art
served up by the company. He frank-
ly stated In a curtain speech that in
his opinion the plays presented were
too refined for Holton. "But,M he add-
ed, "we will try to get down to your
level by presenting 'The Whole Dam
Family,' which does not contain a sen-
sible line. I think this play will ap-
peal to you."
“The audience,” sayB Frank Jarrell
In telling the matter, "Instead of get-
ting mad and lynching the actor, saw
the funny side of the case and laughed
long and loud at him. He didn’t aay
any more.”—Kansas City Journal.
