COLLARS AND JABOTS AMBER shade 0f shantung
ACCESSORIES THAT GIVE THE
TOUCH OF INDIVIDUALITY.
Choice of Styles It Wide, Therefore
i Selection Should Not Be Hurried-
ly Made—Two of the Pret-
tiest Popular Designs.
The simplest frock of linen and
gingham can be given a touch of Indi-
viduality by the collar and Jabot,
which can reflect the new styles,
show handwork and give freshness In
olther white or color at the top of the
Twlne-colored etamlne Is combined
with strawberry pink linen In a pretty
collar. This Is a plain shape, but the
alliance of the two materials gives an
extremely smart effect. At the cor-
ners are conventional roses embroid-
ered in pink wool. Two long ends of
the etamlne are edged with pink linen
Pale blue linen 1b also seen, com-
bined with sheer white Unen, the
latter tucked and forming the upper
part of the collar. The vandyke points
are of blue and points of ecru lace
>_ finish the collar, the whole being
^ edged with a pleating of Bheer linen.
A broad tucked bib hangs In front,
the points of blue linen and heavy
lace edging It A pink ribbon bow
trims the top.
Another extremely popular model Is
of pale pink Unen combined with fine
white linen andjrish lace. Pink coral
buttons are used on the pleated jabot,
and long lines of pink floss are em-
broidered on the edge of the top col-
lar and the long jabot.
Striped linen In blue and white
trims a collar with the straight vest
effect. This shows width over the
shoulders, very shallow In front A
band of striped Unen Is set one Inch
in from the edge, a ruffle of linen fin-
ishing it The straight piece in front
is of striped linen in the center and
narrow strips on each side trimmed
with pearl buttons and loops on sou-
tache. Around the straight piece Is a
ruffle of linen.
Heavy raspberry-pink linen Is used
to trim a collar of sheer white linen
In a modified sailor collar. The
pointed top is of pink, with the color
carried out in embroidery in each
corner. A pleated white Jabot drops
down from the center. The pointed
end Is edged with pink and a line of
pink linen buttons trims the front.
Any color with white will carry out
The high price of hand-worked col-
lars and jabots puts a variety of them
beyond the reach of the usual purse,
if they must be bought. Handwork
should be possible to every woman
who is not an idiot. It Is easy and
admits of many innovations. It can
be equally effective in either simple
or elaborate form. Its distinctive, in-
dividual note is always appreciated
by the well-dressed woman. How
easy it Is! If you once try the touch
of handwork, especially on accesso-
ries, you will become an ardent fol-
lower of the thread and needle. It
will In all cases lead you to success.

it will be remarked that the tunic is

DRESS HAIR TO SUIT FACE
While Prevailing Styles May Be Fol-
lowed, Individuality Is Always to
There are some women who remain
true to the parting in the middle of
the hair, 1 t the many prefer the part-
ing on the side. The forehead is en-
tirely covered, as are the ears, and
there is no bulge anywhere over the
eurface of the head. The flatter the
better. This is the fashion. Every
Individual must modify it to suit her
head and her face, for it is Inartistic
and foolish to follow any fashion with-
out regard to your personal appear-
If a parting is not becoming, then
omit It and draw the hair softly
back. If one's eyes are at their worst
with the hair brought down to the
eyebrows, then it must be lifted.
The main mistake that nearly every
woman makes in arranging her hair
according to the new fashion is in run-
ning it down in a bias line from the
middle of the forehead to the lobe
of the ear. It was this line on each
side of the temples that contributed
to the hideousness of the 1865 coiffure.
Women who take the time and
trouble to study their faces never use
this line. You will notice that they
make it as regular as though it were
carelessly scalloped across the brow
and temples. They give It an inward
curve at the end of each eyebrow and
then bring It out In front of each ear.
This line Is as old as art Itself and
can be seen on any of the famous pic-
tures and statuary. It is not Grecian
in its strictest sense, but It is classic.
Of course the outward swerve in front
«f the ears Is htghlj exaggerated by
Wrap for Traveling.
A military cape is the newest cloak
for traveling. It is comfortable and
smart at the same time and can be
worn over a gown, a suit or even a
flomy, a suit or even a filmy evening
toilette. In cadet blue lined In scar-
let and with a gleam of brass buttons,
It Is truly dashing.
Bullet buttons are seen on all light
weight cloth suits.

produced, but that does not destroy
the fundamental beauty of this line,

terpieces, jabots and handkerchiefs.
The edge Is first finished with very
narrow buttonhole-stitch, then make a
loop by catching the thread back and
forth two or three times and button-
hole stitch over this loop udUI the

make a little loop in the thread as
shown in the illustration. When each
loop is finished go to the next in
the same way.

Peter Harlow squared his big Bhoul
ders and turned to the gray haired
man who was scribbling on bits of
paper at the mahogany desk.
"Let's have all the horrible details.
Bald Peter, with a grin intended to be
entirely nonchalant, but which. If the
whole truth be told, was a trifle
forced. "JuBt how much, or rather
how little, Is there left, Mr. Gray-
Grayson frowned as he looked at the
columns of figures on those bitB of
paper before him.
•There's practically nothing, Peter,"
he said, with a slow shake of his
head. "This is bad business—much
worse than I thought at first. I ni

If you'd only come to me six
"That's one of my characteristics—
to shut the door after the horse is
gone," said Peter. "Nothing, you say?
H'm! That's bad. I've managed to
get a chance with Billy Kenmore at
those mines of his In Sonora. Its a
blamed long walk down there."
"There'll be, perhaps, five hundred
dollars." said Grayson.
"Fine!" said Peter; then he Bcowled.
Grayson interpreted correctly the
meaning of that scowl.
"Of course, It will take a little
to straighten this whole mess out.
said he. "In the meantime, call on
me for anything you want up to that
"Thanks! Mighty good of you*"
With a whimsical smile he turned
his pockets inside out. A dollar bill
and a little odd change tumbled to the
corner of the desk.
"I'm going to take you at your
word," said Peter. "I'll have to have
my expenses down there, and there
are a few little things I want to set
straight before I leave. Suppose you
let me have—say three hundred and
fifty, If it will be all right."
"Surely," he agreed. "Like It In
"Yes, that'll be best," said Peter.
The other touched a button be-
neath the desk. "Bring me in three
hundred, and fifty dollars, Babbitt," he |
ordered the clerk who answered the
Ten minutes later Peter Barlaw, the
three hundred and fifty dollars tucked
in various pockets, shook hands with
the lawyer, laughingly cut short the
other's expressions of commiseration,
and went out. But in the hall Peter
Barlow's face became very grave. It
became graver as he walked towards
the elevator. Then he pulled out a
little engagement book, glanced at a
certain page, and all but groaned
"To Edith's for answer Thursday
at three," he read.
This was Thursday, and between
the time of writing that entry four
days ago and the present time, Peter
Barlow's assets had shrunk from a
supposed half million to something
like five hundred dollars.
"'To Edith's at three for answer,'"
he repeated grimly. "I've got the an-
swer right now, and I may as well
take time by the forelock and go up
there at once."
He pulled out his watch. It was
quarter to twelve.
"Yep, I'll go at once," he decided,
and went out to the street to hail a
"Say," he said, cheerfully to the
chauffeur, "I can't In the least afford
this, but habit is strong, and besides
this is my last appearance bo take
me to Jolin's on the avenue, then over
to McPhair's, then run me up to this
address," he finished, handing the
chauffeur a scribbled card.
It was nearing one when the taxi
stopped at the uptown address. Peter
alighted, paid the chauffeur, gathered
up from the seat a huge box of candy
and a large box of orchids, mounted
the steps and rang the bell.
He waited in the subdued light of
the hall until he heard the patter of
light footsteps on the polished stairs.
"Peter!" cried the girl, running up
to him and catching his arm playfully,
"it was three! Don't you remember?"
Peter seemed about to cjitch her in
his arms, then suddenly bis lips set
and he stepped a pace away from her.
He was still smiling, but it wasn't
"You see," said he, "I have brought
you the answer instead of waiting for
it. It wouldn't do, dear—never in the
world. It would be a frightful mis-
take. I've just realized It. I'm going
away—to Mexico tomorrow, and—and
—say, here's some of those fuzzy
chocolates and a box of orchids," he
ended rather painfully.
The girl made no move to take
either of the boxes he had caught up
and was holding up to her. She was
looking at him curiously.
"You see." he began, after an ex-
ceedingly awkward pause, "you see.
I've just come to my senses. All those
doubts of yours were right. It
wouldn't do—we'd never be happy
I'll just hike out and leave the field
to a better man and—"
"Peter!" The single word came so
sharply that he stopped short
"You've asked me to marry you.
You were coming here this afternoon
for your answer. It's to late to hedge.
I've decided I will marry you!"
"Dear suffering saints!" gasped Pe-
ter and dropped both the boxes with
Twice he opened his mouth as If to
speak, but the words would not come.
When they did come, at last, they
were hurried, garbled, like the words
of a man In a panic.
"Oh, you can't," he said. You
can't I tell you It won't do 1

She looked at him narrowly.
"Why?" said she very calmly. She
seemed to be enjoying Immensely his
"Well, I—I—" Peter began to stam-
"Another girl?" she questioned
Peter clutched at straws. Yes,
that's It, another girl," he declared
She began to laugh. Peter felt yet
"You'll have to forget her," said
she. "We're going to be married—be-
fore you go to Mexico tomorrow.
"Say, look here, Edith," Peter Bald
vehemently. "We can't. 1 tell you
She stepped close to him. She put
both hands on his shoulders. She
was looking up at him with shining
eyes. Peter, at the sight of her thus,
"You are telling ipe anything but
the truth," said Bhe. "I happen to
know the whole truth. I know your
money Is all gone, Bave five hundred
dollars or bo. Mr. Grayson was din
ing here with us last night. He told
father. And father said: "That's the
best thing that ever happened to the
young scamp. Peter's got the stuff
in him. It will be the making of him
—that and the right woman.' And 1
am she, Peter, the right woman I
know It—I'd have known It If dad
hadn't winked at me when he said
what he did. I'm going down there
to Mexico with you to help you man-
age Billy Kenmore's mine. Yes, I
am; don't Bay a word You just
march those orchids straight back to
Jolin's, and take that candy back to
McPhair's and tell them you donjt
want them. The idea! You couldn't
afford them. And mind you, walk; no
I taxis. And after you've taken those
things back, go get the license, and
come straight back here. Dad will
be here with Doctor Brook, and we'll
be married here very quietly
Peter looked at her very hungrily.
Then with a sudden sralghtenlng of
his tall frame and a shutting of his
teeth, he spoke.
"I won't! You shan't make this
sacrifice," said he.
"Sacrifice!" said she. "Is it a sacri-
fice to marry the one man In the
world you'll ever care about? I
wasn't marrying your old half million
you thought you had; I'm marrying
you. And I think you are going to be
a whole lot better. You without that
"No," said Peter Barlow, heroical-
ly, but rather unconvinclngly.
She came very close to him once
more. Her soft hair brushed his
cheek. She looked up at him with
eyes that burned like two stars. The
nearness of her, the dainty sweetness
of her made him gasp.
"No?" she asked with a quiet smile
of triumph. "No?"
He caught her in his arms. He held
"Yes—oh, the fool that I am! —
yes," said he. "You win; you knew
you would. What show have I got to
put any fine notions In effect when
you're with me? Marry you? I'd like
to see anybody st6p me, money or no
money. Hang it, what a fool I am to
let you do this, what a fool, but how
fearfully happy I am being that kind
of a fool!"
An hour later Peter Barlow again
entered Grayson's office
"I think I'll go the limit and bor-
row the whole of the five hundred off
you," said Peter. "You see, I'm tak-
ing a wife down to the mines with
OW that the Panama canal Is
nearing completion, scientists
are directing attention to an-
other gigantic and fascinating
engineering proposal, the rec-
lamation of the great Sahara desert
in North Africa.
A« far back as the time of De Les-
s< pb. who designed the Suez canal, a
French engineer. Colonel Koudaire,
I broached the project of letting the
waters of the Mediterranean into the
dcBort of Sahara and forming two
lakes In central and southern Alge-
ria The projector of the Suez canal
approved that design, and now comes
Professor Etchegoyen of Paris with
a striking scheme, that of converting
the whole vast desert into an Inland
sea. The work would present no
great mechanical difficulties, he says,
because the coast land is composed of
Band and soft rock formations The
consequences of this piece of engi-
neering would be gigantic.
The first result would be to add a
greut new colony to the possessions
of France. Millions of human beings
could support themselves therein In
comfort, since, with the lack of water
supplied, the desert shores would be-
come as fertile as those of Europe.
Fleets of steamships would navigate
the Sea of Sahara, a sea varying In
depth from ten to sixty fathoms, and
build up a flourishing trade between
Algeria and French West Africa. And
the most remarkable result of all
would be the alteration of the climate
of all northern Africa from equatorial
extremes of heat to tho pleasing tem-
perature of Natal.
Might Transform Climate.
Professor Etchegoyen's scheme has
provoked much comment, and objec-
tions have not been wanting. Certain
meteorological experts cry out in hor-
ror that any tampering with weather
conditions In Africa would transform
the climate of Europe; that, If tro-
pical Africa should become temperate,
Europe would become Arctic, and an
alarming picture Is drawn of England,
Helgium and Denmark lying under sev-
eral feet of perpetual snow and their
inhabitants either emigrating In haste
to milder countries or leading thence-
forth the lives of Eskimos. A still
more striking reason for leaving the
great desert alone is presented in the
agrument that, by the displacing of
so many billions of tons of water, the
equilibrium of the earth would actu-
ally be affected, and the engineer who
had undertaken the task of adding a
new sea to the map of the world
would forever after be cursed by hu-
both estimates are generous—It would
contain about thirty-five billion tons
of water. Whether the canal were
cut to the north coast of Africa or to
the west, the flooding would be grad-
ual and the level of the Atlantic
would be speedily re-established Of
course thirty-five billion tons seems
a great deal of water, but In propor-
tion to the bulk of the earth It is
utterly Infinitesimal, and compared
with the volume of the ocean It Is as
a drop out of a pailful. A little rea-
soning. or experimenting with globes
or balls will show that, since the
earth Is not exactly spherical, but Is
somewhat thickened at the equator
and flattened at the poleB, to disturb
her present axis of 23 1-2 degrees In-
clination it would be necessary to ap-
ply additional weight at cither one
of the two poles. The additional
weight of the water for the Sahara
sea. spread out as it would be at the
equator, could not therefore affect the
balance of the earth's axis.
Hut It Is said that the climate of
Europe would be endangered That
Is a more Interesting, because a more
plausible objection. At present there
is very little rain over the desert re-
gions of North Africa. Scientists
agree that this dryness is due not to
the arrangement of neighboring
mountain ranges, but to various phy-
sical causes In the region itself. Per-
haps the presence of bo extended a
body of water might produce rains.
Certainly it would equalize the tem-
perature so that there would be less
Intense heat by day and less Intense
chill by night; but comparison with
other regions bordering on seas In
the equatorial zone shows that It
could not reduce the temperature of
a tropical climate to that of any
merely temperate region not Influ-
enced—as Bermuda Is. for example—
by warm winds or currents That
eliminates one of the assumed dan-
The warm climate of the British
Isles Is due to warm ocean currents
which sweep their shores; It is most
unlikely that drawing from the Atlan-
tic ocean the water required to form
a Sahara sea would deflect, to any
serious degree, if at all, any of these
great currentB. That eliminates an-
other danger. The third and last
danger that has universal import con-
sists in whether or not such a sea
would too greatly cool the winds that
blow from Africa across the Mediter-
ranean to southern Europe. But it
is safe to predict that while colonists

"A wife?" said Mr. Grayson, evident-

suredly, Peter. Excellent idea. I was
sure you would. I was sure of It last
night at dinner. I am not sure, too,
but what you owe the winning of that
