HAD NO RATIONS TO SPARE
TO THE blind there Is no color, and
for the deaf music does not exist.
We may, therefore, assume that when
a great designer like Premet turns out
a model which strikes us as clumsy,
that the fault lies in our inability to
"see" It. Or we may conclude that
In the effort to be sensationally origi-
nal the designer has forgotten that it
la not worth while to be original at
the expense of grace. At all events,
here Is a Premet model in taffeta silk
with under petticoat of plaid silk, a
short, ungraceful coat with revers of
plaid and a bunchy skirt caught up at
the side with small loops.
If this model was created for the
purpose of attracting attention it has
fulfilled Its mission. One will look
a long time before finding a copy" of
It. Certain features In It, however,
have been utilized by American dress-
makers with fine effect, namely, the
plaid silk petticoat under plain silk
skirts, plaid revers and cuffs on short
coats. Roman stripes also are used
In the same way and with good results.
The overdress was long ago an as-
sured success, but not the meaning-
less bunched-up affair which appears
to have no acquaintance whatever
with the lines of the figure. The
ovehsklrt, or tunic, long or short,
pointed, plain and occasionally looped,
In fact shaped in innumerable ways.
Is a feature of the season. But It Is
a thing of beautiful lines, providing
pleasing contrasts in color and ma-
Short, straight-hanging Jackets and
little separate coats of taffeta that set
well on the figure are the outgrowth
of such models as that pictured here.
They are immensely useful garments,
that may be worn anywhere. But the
Influence of women of taste has turned
against the sensational In clothing.
Novelty will not appeal to her in the
future unless other recommendations
appear with it in garments made for
her approval. That this approval was
withheld from 50 per cent of the mod-
els brought over this year ts a con-
cession that almost any Importer will
make. Refined taste is what we are
going to pay our money for and sen-
sationalism is not "In the play."
Footwear Developed for the Dance
Good Reason Why Confederate Com-
mander Was Willing to See His
"When, at Gaines Mill in 1862, the
5th Texas captured two whole regi-
ments of Union soldiers, the Texans
were all very proud of their achieve-
ment. One of them has described an
amusing scene In connection with the
When the Union Officers gave up
their swords to Col. Upton, they were
so prompt in the duty that he was
compelled to lay down the frying pan
which he carried in the place of a
sword and hold the weapons presented
In his arms.
Just then he noticed a commotion at
the far end of the captured regiments
That was near the timber, and a squad
of the prisoners were making an ef-
fort to pass by "Big John" Ferris of
Company B, who stood there unaided,
endeavoring to Intercept them.
Springing upon a log, the armful of
swords dangling about in every direc-
tion, Upton shouted:
"John Ferris, what are you trying to
"I am trying to keep these fellows
from escaping," yelled Big John.
"Let them go, you fool!" shouted
back Upton. "We'd rather fight than

THE dancing madness which has
swept over lands and seas has
brought out much ingenuity on the
part of those who provide apparel for
nil the needs of city dwellers. This
dancing, In fact, is a mere frolic which
the hedged-in city folk manage in their
crowded quarters, for lack of more
space and better sport in roomier
quarters. And everybody 1b dancing.
Slim youths and rotund grandfathers,
children and youthful maids and ma-
trons, even frolicsome grandmothers
on the shady side of fifty. It is a
family sport, like sea bathing, and
only professionals Indulge in acrobatic
feats and mad whirlings.
The liking for the new dances Is
going to survive for some time. At
least, that Is the faith of those who
provide amusement at summer hotels
and summer gardens. Danced accord-
ing to the rules laid down by the fore-
most authorities, the new dances are
far more interesting and pleasing than
the plain waltz, equally graceful and
not as strenuous as the two-step. Each
dancer Invents steps and figures for
hlmBelf, and each dancer Bees to It
that his or her feet are carefully clad.
The satin dancing slipper shown
here is about the most satisfactory
and the most popular for those who
are all ready for the impromptu dance,
which needs only a little music to
start up anywhere.
It is to be worn amply long, dancers
often selecting a half-size in length
greater than needed In a walking shoe.
A careful selection of Just the right
last and as narrow a shoe as can be
worn comfortably, make up the requi-
site of the good-looking and properly
fitting footwear for dancing.
Heels are only moderately high, soles
flexible, and fabrlo In the body of the
shoe soft but strong.
Eyelets worked in the sides art
threaded with silk laces. They are
laced in the manner shown in the
picture, brought three times about the
ankle and tied in front, with little
silk tassels finishing the bow. Silk
stockings are worn with 9ancfng
shoes, or stockings that look like silk
but are In reality not made of silk
but of a fiber that Is very strong and
has a high luster. ThiB hosiery Is
called Bilk, wears as well and costs
less. It must be carefully handled in
the laundry, as it is inclined to fade.
People are becoming very fastidious
in the matter of footwear and require
much at the hands of the shoe man.
It is a good thing all round, as neat
ness always Is.
Coat Hanger Worth While.
A coat hanger may be padded and
covered with cretonne or chintz In-
stead of silk or ribbon. It makes a
strong, substantial cover, and If the
chintz is of a good design the hanger
will be very quaint and pretty. This
would be an excellent way to utilize
Bmall pieces of material.
i Wrap the hook with narrow ribbon,
matching some shade In the chintz. A
little different arrangement can be ob-
tained by twisting In the usual way
and winding the ribbon around the
hanger at the base of the hook, then
fastening It securely with needle and
thread. A rosette of ribbon can be
added to the side of the hook If de-
sired. Scent the padding before cov-
ering, or make sachet bags and at-
tach to the base of the hook with
long, narrow ribbons so that they will
hang Inside the garment or coat.
The latter plan of using the sachet
is best aB the scent can easily be re*
newed from time to time.
"Ah, yes, there are still true and
loyal souls in this sad world," mur-
mured (he solemn individual in the tor-
toise-shell glasses. "I used to know a
dear girl—it was ten long years ago—
and not a year has passed since that
she hasn't written me a birthday let-
ter. Always what she writes is about
the same: 'Dear Alfred, I can't ever
forget, not if I live to be a hundred,
this day of all the days In the year.
Let me once again wish you long life
and happiness with all my heart,' etc."
"Very sweet of the girl," said the
stout young man with the amazing
waistcoat, "very sweet of her, in-
"Very," replied the solemn Indi-
vidual; "only, you see, she writes that

SUGGESTIONS FOR ICE TRUST I
Just a Few Reasons Why There
Should Be an Advance in Price
of Summer Necessity.
The Ice trust having offered a silver
loving-cup for the best excuse which
might be invented for raising the
price of ice after the cold winter, we
hopefully submit the following:
1. The Ice being so thick and heavy,
it costs more to handle it.
2. The blocks are so large that there
is great waste in cutting them up for
the retail trade.
3. The ice is so cold It freezes solid
in the storage houses and Is very diffi-
cult to get out.
4. As the winter has been so cold,
the summer will necessarily be very
hot, and the demand for ice very
great, so that it Is doubtful If there
will be enough to go around.
5. The ice being extra thick, extra
cold, and extra quality all through, it
is only proper that an extra price
should be demanded.
6. The price of tee never had any
relation to the cost of production, any-
For the Collection Box.
Jimmy, aged four, had been sent up-
stairs by his mother to get ten cents,
which she intended to use for the pur-
chase of postage stamps.
Not knowing exactly what a ten-
cent piece looked like, Jimmy called
downstairs: "Mother, is ten cents a
little piece of money?"
"Yes, Jimmy, the smallest piece of
money In my purge."
"Oh, I know now, mother! Church

too highly of your Vegetable Compound

would not be without it. I had a dis-
placement, bearing down, and haekache,

oughly run down when I took Lydia E.
