Pantalette Undoubtedly Here
TWO HUNDRED LIVES ARE LOST
WHEN THE ANCONA GOES
Diversity of detail 1b a striking char-
acteristic In the new models. In the
morning blouso to wear with the tail-
ored suit it Is the brilliant coloring and
odd fastening that Is the great style
change from tho preceding season.
Made of velvet, satin, faille, georgette
crepe of taffeta, it matches the petti-
coat or Its new rival, pantalettes, of
the same material, generally a kidlike
finished satin. The blouse and panta-
lettes are now attached to each other.
The pantalettes, which are made
on masculine trouser line as to width
and general shape, are no longer than
the short skirt worn over them. The
hem of the skirt, undulating or fall-
ing in points, partially conceals the
pantalettes or delusively gives them
the appearance of a fight drop skirt.
Sometimes the pantalettes are drawn
in like bloomers. More frequently
they are edged by bands of fur. The
laoy pantalettes of last season of the
old-fashioned kind and longer than
the skirt are almost never seen now.
In the evening gowns the pantalette
Is confined to the charmeuse drop
skirt, which Is almost lost to view un-
der the diaphanous outer skirts, long
and short, that hang over It. This pan-
talette drop skirt is pretty because It
Indicates tho long, slender lines of the j
limbs more than a mere drop skirt
would and gives the same appearance
without shackling the wearer's move-

Rome—The Italian liner Ancona has
been sunk by a large submarine flying
the Austrian colors. She carried 422
passengers and sixty in thecrew. Two
hundred and seventy survivors, some
of them wounded, have been landed at
New York.—The Ancona sailed from
New York for Naples on October 17
She had on board 1,245 Italian reserv-
ists and a general cargo. She arrived
at Naples October 29 and was due to
sail from Naples for New York No-
vember 14. •
The Ancona was built at Belfast in
1904. She had a gross tonnage o(
8,210, was 482 feet in length and fifty-
For several months before Italy's
entrance in the war the Ancona was
engaged in carrying home Italian re-
servists from this country and sup-
plies for the Italian government. On
one of her trips from New York to
Naples late in August last year the
Ancona was stopped by the British at
Gibraltar and twenty-four Germans and
one Austrian were taken off the ship,
Late last summer the Ancona left here
for Italy with 75,000 bushels of wheat,
2.000 tons of hay and 500 horses foi
the Italian government. On the same
voyage she carried 300 Italians in the
steerage who went back because il
was at the time they could not gel
work on the New York subway-
When the Ancona left New York on
her last voyage from here on October
17, she was in command of Captain
Pietro Massardo. All of her officers,
engine room force and members of the
crew were Italians.
William Hartfield, general managei
of the Italian line, characterized the
sinking of the Ancona as "an unneces-
sary crime" and "absolute murder.
He immediately cabled the Naples of-
fice of his firm asking for all informa-
tion regarding the disaster.
Although he had no list of her pas-
sengers, Mr. Hartfield said the Ancona
an her last few voyages to this country
had carried 300 or 400 passengers,
among them a number of American
citizens in the first cabin and in the
steerage. Most of her passenger list,
Mr. Hartfield said, had been made up
of women and children. He believed
she carried a large number of women
and children on her present voyage.
The Ancona, he added, carried a
crew of 1G0 men. At no time, said Mr.
Hartfield. did the Ancona carry guns
or munitions of war, because it was
against the rules of the company to
carry war munitions on the same ves-
sels with passengers.
The Ancona has been in the Italian
line service for six years and without
her cargo was valued at more than
The Ancona played a prominent part
in the rescue of passengers from the
burning Fabre line Sant 'Anna in mid-
Atlantic last September 12.

I'arty gownB may be fashioned in a
froth of lace and net, in layers of
chilTon or net, or both over a silk

new and beautiful taftetas. And no
matter how airy and unsubstantial
they may be, bands of fur are very
likely to appear on them. Embroid-
eries of silver thread, the introduction
of silver laces, and a use of span-

A lovely model appears in the pic-
ture above, made of tafTeta. This silk
Is shown in a new and substantial-
looking weave, in all tho light colors
and In fascinating opalescent effects.
Any of them will be suited for devel-
opment Into a gown like that shown
The bodice is simplicity Itself, ao
far as shape is concerned. It Is mere-
ly a broad band of the silk wrapped
about the figure and fastened at one
Bide It is overlaid by an embroid-
ered band of chiffon in which sliver
threads and spangles are wrought in-
to the pattern. It Is supported by
suspenders of black velvet ribbon over
the shoulders, edged with scant ruf-
fle* of malines in black.
The skirt Is moderately wide and
finished with a heavy cord at the bot-
tom which weights It and preserves a
little flare. It is cut so that a bit of
draping is introduced at tho right side,
where a pretty spray of little chllfon
roses, set on a long wire (wound with •
gray-green ribbon), is tacked to the j
skirt In several places. These roseB j
are in pastel colorings and add a
gay, youthful touch that looks as If
it might have sprung from the mind
of the young wearer.
Slippers or high-laced boots ol
satin are worn with dancing frocks,
to match them in color. Those made
of silver or gold tissue have the ad-
vantage of looking well with a frock
of any color. Silk hose matching the
slippers complete the details of tho

rich pansy shades, and they also fig-

on morning ones.

absence from the British war office is
said by confidential information re-
ceived here to be in India, where, ac-
cording to the same information, Brit
ish rule is confronted with a more
serious state of unrest than has gen-
erally been known outside of British
Coupled with repeated rumors of ac-
tivities of German agents fomenting
discontent among the native popula-
tion of India have come reports of dis-
satisfaction in Egypt also ascribed to
the same source.
Since the Turks failed to cut the
Suez canal, mainly through the prompt
arrival of Colonial troops from New
Zealand, and Australia, it has been re-
ported that agents from Constantinople

j Omaha.—A letter from M F. Em-
j bredez, a Guatemalan, to It. H. Secord,
an Omaha railroad man. tells of the
narrow escape from death of Dr. C. F.
Secord, brother of the Omaha man.
The story Is that I)r. Secord, with gov-
ernment troops sent to suppress a
Guatemalan revolution, was wounded
in a fight October 25. A few hours
later a relief party found him with a
wounded soldier, tied to a stake In the
middle of an ant hill, where it is de-
clared they would have been devoured

Stop That Backache!
There's nothing more discouraging
than a constant backache. You are
lame when you awake. Pains pierce you
when you bend or lift. It's hard to rest
and next day it's the same old story.
Pain in the back is nature's wanting of
kidney ills. Neglect may pave the way
to dropsy, gravel, or other serious kid-

has been curing backache and kidney
