PRETTY CANDLE SHADE
TABLE DECORATION EASILY
MADE AT HOME.
Simple Materials, With a Little Work
and the Exercise of One's In-
genuity, About All That
Nothing adds more to the homelike
air of a house than prettily shaded,
lighted candies, whether upon the din-
ing room table, in the living rooms or
Some of the very prettiest are home-
made, as the illustration proves. This
is made from four circular doilies of
sheer handkerchief linen edged with
cluny lace one inch wide, each doily
measuring six inches in diameter, for
a small shade when finished, larger
sizes up to lamp shades to be in pro-
portion, of course.
If only one shade is to be made, the
best and cheapest way is to cut the
four squares from a handkerchief, be-
cause then there will be no waste.
Linen is so wide that even when the
smallest quantity is bought more than
half will be wasted. A woman's hand-
kerchief is ample for a small shade. A
man's will make the larger. Also doi-
lies all ready stamped for working can
be bought at ten cents each. However,
one may be more individual if she can
trace her own design, and as they are
so simple this should not be difficult to
do. For Instance, if she traced the de-
sign of her dinner ware upon the linen
and worked it out in the same color-
ing the light shining through the linen
would give the shade all the impres-
sion of being porcelain, too.
Another effective design that would
shed a soft glow over the white cloth
would be a sprinkling of autumn
leaves, using silk in the natural tints
of the leaves. After embroidering the
linen the edges are turned neatly un-
•ler and machine 3titched. Half a yard

very good imitation cluny can be
bought for ten cents a yard; that will
be 20 cents for the four doilie3 and
probably only 15 cents for the hand-
kerchief. Ten cents for embroidery silk
will be ample, while the square wire

FURS AND FUR SUBSTITUTES
Graceful, Becoming Models in Both—
Winter Has Made a Change
in the Styles.
Winter sees a decided change in
the style of the newest wraps and
stoles made in furs or fur substitutes.
Last year the majority of the stoles
were quite straight in shape, the
widths varying from eight or nine
inches to considerable proportions,
but now the old-fashioned pelerine or
small cape promises to be most popu-
Carried out in soft musquash, seal,
coney, ermine or other fur many of
these models are very graceful and
Some beautiful examples of shaped
shoulder scarfs seen lately were made
of broadtail or black ponyskin, as
supple and silky as satin, trimmed
with effective touches of taffeta or
velvet, in some cases with another fur
introduced around the neck or deco-
rating the ends.
For those, however, who find these
real furs too costly the new makes
of ponyskin and broadtail cloth an-
swer most admirably. Those manu-
factured furs are such faithful copies
of the real article that in many in-
stances it requires an expert to dis-
criminate between the two.
Those who require an up-to-date fur
wrap at a moderate cost cannot do
better than copy the real furs In fur
cloth. This is by no means a difficult
proceeding, as the fur cloth can be ob-
tained in wide widths that can readily
be draped In graceful lines.
When making up a stole in fur ma-
terial it is as well to add an interlin-
This charming afternoon gown Is
called "La Dame et la Mode." It is of
white ottoman. The new decollete Is
shown in a pretty effect running from
shoulder to shoulder in fichu effect.
The new waist line is short, coming to
a point at the front. The new skirt is
extremely wide, laid in folds and al-
lows sufficient room for walking, danc-
lace edging. The inner edge must be
drawn up, of course. Then it is basted
neatly to the edge of the doily, and
stitched by machine. A certain crisp-
ness in the linen is necessary to keep
the shade firm. This is obtained by
putting through warm water and then
through a thin boiled Btarch. They
can be ironed, needlework downward,
on flannel, but there is no better way
of pressing embroidered linens than to
lay them dripping upon the sides of a
porcelain bathtub and leaving them
there until bone dry.
They will look like new, the em-
broidery will stand out clearly (em-
broidery upward this time), and there
is no hot iron to fade the colors. Every
scrap of air must be pressed out, and
the edges of the lace be clearly defined
when laying on the tub. This done,
leave the article absolutely alone.
The doilies are attached to the wires
with a few stitches taken through the
Straps are used to restrain the full-
ness in many of the new winter coats
and skirts. Sometimes there are two
straps across the back of a coat where
the full skirt flares from the waist
section. Sometimes there are straps
across the front of the skirt to hold
in the fullness below the waist, and
sometimes they are used for the same
purpose on the hips. They are
stitched usually, and give a very

MOCK EARRINGS FIND FAVOR
Change From Old Design of Orna-
mentation Has Pleased the
Woman of Fashion.
Mock earrings are the newest nov-
elty. You can see them any afternoon
on Broadway. A hairpin, an almost in-
visible chain and a pendant—that's the
combination. The hairpin is stuck in
the hair just above and on a line with
the back of the ear. The chain hangs
from the hairpin and is mostly hid by
the ear. The pendant is suspended
from the end of the chain on a line
with the tip of the earlobe, where It
dangles free. All sorts of colored
stones are used for pendants. Women
who wear mock earrings, of course, re-
frain from sticking big tortoise shell
hairpins in a northeasterly direction
under their hats.—New York Letter

The past year has shown that the
Province of -Manitoba, the Premier
Province of Western Canada, stands

For some years, as is probably the
case In all new countries, Manitoba
went largely into the growing of
grain, and while this paid well for a
time, It was found that having to pur-
chase his meat, his milk and a num-
ber of other daily requisites, the farm
did not pay as it should. Now, there
Is another Bide to it. Fodder crops
are grown, cattle are being raised,
cheese factories and creameries are
established, and the result Is that the
financial position of the farmers of
Manitoba is as strong as that of those
in any other portion of the continent.

ized that the growing of grains alone

"Then he ought to be able to raise
diversified farming, and securing the
latest modern and most economic
methods. Therefore timothy, clover,
alfalfa, rye grass and fodder corn are
universally grown. Most wonderful
success meets the efforts of the farm-
ers in the cultivation of these grasses,
and the yields compare favorably
with those of many older countries,
while in many cases they exceed them.
It is worth while recording the acre-
age of these crops this season as com-
pared with last, because the figures re-
flect the remarkable progress that is
being made in dairying and in the
beef and pork industry. In 1913 brome
grass was sown on 24,912 acres, rye
grass on 21,917 acres, timothy on
118,712 acres, clover on 5,328 acres, al-
falfa on 4,709 acres and fodder corn on
20,223 acres. In 1914 the respective
acreage under those crops were 25,444
acres, 27,100 acres, 165,990 acres, 7,212
acres, and 10,250 acres and 30,430 acres.
Alfalfa particularly is coming into its
own, the acreage having been more
than doubled last year.
It is simply the natural process of
evolution from the purely grain farm-
ing which Manitoba knew as the only
method twenty years ago to the more
diversified forms of agriculture that

against 52,000; and there are 325,000
horses, as compared with 300,000 at

Dairying the Principal Industry.
Dairying is the industry, however,
which is making dollars for the Mani-
toba farmer. It is developing at a rap-
id rate in this Province for that par-
ticular reason. The output of crcam-
ery butter last year was 4,000,000
pounds, at an average price of 27.5
cents per pound, which was an in-
crease over the previous year of a
million pounds. The output of dairy
butter was recorded last year at 4,288,-
276 pounds. The Government depart-
ment says that again this year a sub-
stantial increase in the dairy output
will be shown from this Province.
From this same source of information
one finds that through the splendid
growth in winter dairying, Winnipeg
now, for the first time in years, is
able to obtain a sufficient supply of
milk and sweet cream from its city
dairies to satisfy its demand through-
out the year without having to import
large quantities of these products
from the United States as was done
not longer than two years ago —Ad-

part of the year there is no fresh-

soon after the rainy season Is over.
