War Department Merely Distributing
Military From Islands—More
Troops Are Due
Washington—The working out o(
plans long ago made public for the dis-
tribution in this country of returning
Philippine troops undoubtedly has
caused a revival of old rumors that a
large part of the United States army
Is to be assembled on the Mexican
boundary. Somewhat impatiently, the
general staff officers again Monday
quieted these rumors by pointing to
the various statements Issued from the
war department, the last as recently

uled to end their tropical service In
the Philippines during 1912
Two of these regiments already are
at sea on their way to San Francisco
and one of them—the Fourteenth cav-
alry—will go into the border country,
taking station at Fort Clark and Fort
McIntosh in Texas. The Third in-
faatry. also afloat, is bound for New
York posts. The other regiments will
embark at Manila on various dates
until as late as June 15. It is not set
tied where they will be located, but
it is expected that one and perhaps
two will be located in the southwest.
These facta were announced some J
time ago and can have no connection
with recent developments in Mexico.
The rumors afloat Monday of another
concentration of troops on the border
are declared to have no more basis
than the fact that under instructions
from Washington some army officers
are scouting in Texas for eligible
camping sites for such returning Phil
ippines troops as may be assigned to
the department of Texas.

London Good Oyster Market.
London is a great consumer of
oysters. The cheapness of the deli-

mand for it, which has hung with the
appetites of the people as tenaciously
as the habit of smoking a pipe has
among the men. It is estimated that
London consumes a billion a year and

Madame Pompadour Hat Is One
of the Very Latest Creations
Photo, Copyright, by Underwood & Underwood, N. Y.
This white Neapolitan hat is one of fashion's very latest creations. The
crown is covered with rare silk figured in the delicate shades of pink and
green, the pompon being of pink roses with green leaves, being the ruling
style for these hats.
SOMETHING OF A NOVELTY CHARACTER SHOWN BY DRESS
Inexpensive Lamp Shades May Be De-
signed From the Ordinary
An Inexpensive, novel and pretty
way of making lamp shades, especial-
ly for the summer cottages, is to uti-
lise Japanese lanterns. The kind used
are the rather large, oval-shaped ones
in either a solid color or half one and
half another. The upper part to the
desired depth is cut off. guided by the
small bamboo bands which stiffen and
fold it. and is neatly trimmed off At
the top. which is finished by a black
wooden band, the wire hanger is re-
moved and in place of it one of two
or three supports substituted. One
consists of three wires, equidistant
around the top, and bent so as to
hang over the top of the lamp chim-
ney. Another method is a regular
support fitting the top and attached to
the lamp at the base of the chimney;
or else the lower edge of the shade
may be wired and the usual tripod
support be used.
I made two like this, using the first
mentioned style of hanging just for
fun this summer, and the cheerful,
red figured Japanese lily shades made
such a hit that all my neighbors made,
or had me make, the same things for

Value, as a Setting for the Personality,
Varies With the Moods of
No woman can afford to be indiffer-
ent in the matter of costume, and all
women are more or less influenced by
what they wear.
One damsel Bwaggers about in mas-
culine effects, heavy boots, stiff collar,
tailored coat, etc., another Is sweetly
feminine In fluffy ruflies, picture hat,
chiffons, laces and parasol, and the
Indlfferelce to appearances Is almost
Invariably exactly what she looks—
straight-laced, prim, severe, cold, in-
capable of any flight of fancy, lacking
the power of sympathy, and with no
intricate uncertainties to soften the
hardness of her character.
Equally true is the fact that a gown
which is extremely becoming today is
very mediocre tomorrow. Its value as
a setting for the personality varies
with the moods of the wearer. When
discouragement, depression and a gen-
eral feeling of dullness envelops one
in a gray cloud the tendency is to don
black, a gray or a dull brown gown.
Such a choice is a great mistake, tend
lng to accentuate the gloom about the
wearer. Crush such a choice under
foot and choose instead the liveliest
dress in your wardrobe. Something
with red, brilliant green, bright blue
or any vivid tone.
This pretty waist is of light silk
piped with black and ornamented with
little straps and buttons.
The yoke Is of lace finished at the
neck with a frill of embroidered mus-
lin. and similar frills finish the sleeves

Many Shades of Red.
The new combination in smart after-
noon and evening gowns is tomato
red, with the purple of Hamburg
grapes. This red is one of the new
shades of the fashionable color and is
a lovely one, indeed.
Among its rivals are raspberry, wa-
ter melon, flame and geranium. Among
the purples are grape, night, royal,
Vatican or cardinal purple and ame-
It is not a new fashion to mingle pur-
ple and red, but for a while It went
out; now it seems to have returned
through the Insisting influence of Paul
Poiret, who has never ceased to love
and use it, so that it has become more
credited to his name than to any oth
er great designer.
WORN AT RECENT WEDDING
Costumes of Bride and Attendants

At a recent wedding of importance
some of the costumes were note-
The bride's gown was of silver and
white brocaded satin, elaborately em-
broidered and trimmed with aiencen
lace. The square court train was
three yards in length.
It was almost completely covered
with a veil of rare old lace, a family
The honor maid wore a dainty frock
of palest pink mousseline de sole over
a faint tint of blue liberty silk.
The bodlece had a dropped lichu of
finest Chantilly lace caught slightly
to the left side with a cluster of small
silk roses, in the pastel shades of vio-
let, pink and yellow.
A deep flounce of six scalloped pleat-
ings of the mousseline trimmed the
skirt. Small clusters of the roses
were placed at Intervals around the
With this gown was worn a fas-
cinating bonnet of shirred mousseline
de sole of palest blue. A narrow
pleating finished the edge and a
wreath of 6mali silk roses, matching
those used upon the frock, encircled
the crown and adorned the bonnet
Colors In Hats.
Thia is a season of most brilliant
colors in millinery; cerise, king's blue
combined with green and a touch of
pink; the tan shades, sage green, gray
and pink ostrich plumes and smart
combinations of black and white, all
are used with a lavish band. One of
the smart new touches 1b to match the

same material, trimming the top of the
