The little oversleeves of coats or

shoulder, but the kimono sleeve really
has lost prestige at last and Is seen
less than it was at the beginning of
the season. When It Is used the under-

A class in a Harlem school was told
to write letters about l'eter Stuy-
vesant. "Hello!" wrote one pupil, ad-
dressing the famous chief of New
Amsterdam. "I'm sorry you're dead.
Are you governor yet?" "He was a
very beautiful and a very stubborn
man." wrote another. "He was a
very good man," observed another
wirter, "but I'll tel you what I know
about him when 1 sec you."
The Lion Store
All manner of odd trimmings are be-
ing placed upon the hats brought out
for this autumn. While some of these
garnishings are a bit outre, many of
them are really attractive, aB in the
case with the shape In black velvet.
On the low and rather wide crown is
not an tom of trimming, but the ilaring
brim is turned flatly back, under an
Egyptian fan plume of white ostrich
spirals rooted in a pump bow of black
velvet ribbon. A ruche of white os-
trich flues, banding the throat, fastens
under a black velvet chou.
His Change in Belief.
'Do you believe that all men are j
created equal!" "I used to before 1 (
was married." "And now?" "Now I \
tlnd that I can't begin to compare j
with other women's husbands." He- j
troit Free Press.
__ Fine for Two.
"Did you ever tell that young man
that late hours were bad for one?
asked father at the breakfast table.
"Well, father," replied the wise daugh-
ter, "late hours may be bad for one,
but they're all right for two."
Aspen Best Wood for Matches.
Aspen wood is used almost exclu-!
sively In the manufacture of matches' j
in Sweeded, as It is easily cut and j
porous enough to be easily impregnat-
ed with sulphur or paraffin.
Their Final Chance.

should say It was the last resort for j

"Necessity Is the mother of inven-
tion," and with stockings so extrava
gantly sheer and theretore so fright-
fully expensive, one clever woman has
devised a scheme whereby she always
appears to be clad in the most dain-
tily transparent black hosiery, where-
as in reality she is wearing a dark
London smoke colored stocking at
about 35 cents a pair. The cleverness
of this idea must be demonstrated be-
fore It can receive appreciation. Not
only does the smoke color give the
effect of extreme transparency, but it
also suggests the daintiest of feet and
ankles, minus the usual unattractive
number of swollen veins and bumps
that are so obtrusively apparent.
If a girl feels that she absolutely
I must wear a transparent guimpe even
though the day chance '.o be unseason
ably cool, let her get a "chicken-skin"
| under guimpe. This contrivance is a
| fake neck of pale flesh tinted leather
of a quality finer than the material
used for the best of gloves, and really
| leads the casual observer to believe
J that the thinly-veiled neck is on view.
| Incidentally, the "chicken-skin" may
l prevent a cane of pneumonia.
Thou«Wnds of gold seekers who
joined In the mad rush to the Klon-
dike hurr'ed over ground containing
that veiy treasure which they ex-
pected to And at the end of their
Journey. Ms.ny of these gold seekers,
indeed, must have paBsed In sight of
the quartz vein near the Valdez
glacier which 12 years later was de-
veloped Into what is now known at
the Cliff mine This vein has aver-
aged abou* a ton, mostly In free
gold, with little change In depth, the
concentrates running about 7 per cent
and carrying about $100 worth of gold
to the ton, according to a report of
the United States geological survey.
This Is probably a fair measure of the
gold content of the ores of the dis-
trict. though many property owners
report contents ranging from $75 to
$200, or even higher.
The Cliff mine became productive
In 1910 and proved to be very profit-
able. Its suocess greatly stimulated
prospecting by local miners and also
attracted the attention of nonresi-
dents, who quickly recognized the pos-
sibility of developing here a new min-
ing district. As a result, several hun-
dred lode claims were Btaked and con-
siderable development work was un-
dertaken In 1910 and 1911.
At this time Alfred H. Brooks, geolo-
gist In charge of the Alaskan work of
the United States geological survey,
visited the region and made an ex-
amination of its possibilities, and his
report, Just issued by the survey,
showB that the most encouraging fea-
ture of the district 1b the fact that
one lode has been profitably mined to
a depth of about 400 feet and for
about 600 feet along the strike So
far as can be Been, he states, there
are no geologic conditions at the Cliff
mine which are not found elsewhere
In the region.
CAGE MASTS' VALUE PROVED.
Far from pronouncing the doom of
the cage mast of the American battle-
ships, the recent firing tests In Che -
apeake Bay are regarded by naval of-
ficers as demonstrating most concinc-
Ingly the efficiency of the cage mast.
Sixteen 12-inch explosive shells I
were fired at the experimental cage
mast erected on the hulk of the San ;
Marcos, formerly the battleship Tex-
as, which lies on the shoals of Tangier
Sound, Chesapeake Bay. Of these
thirteen were fair and square hits,
and the last hit toppled the mast Into
the water, while this heavy fire, con-
centrated upon the mast at close
range, resulted after thirteen hits in
the destruction of the mast Naval
officers assert that In the first place
the masts of a ship in action would
never under any Imaginable circum-
stances, be subjected to such a fire,
j In the second place, It is declared, two
j or three well-directed shots at one of
j the old-time cylindrical masts would
be sufficient to bring it down. There-
fore the recent tests prove conciusive-
| ly that the cage mast can withstand
at least six or seven times the firing
that the old mast can endure.
The cage mast originated with the
American navy, though other navies
are beginning to adopt It
