1 bad cramping pains in my stomach

Saved With Dynamite.
A thrilling story comes out of north-
ern Ontario. The women of an Indian
encampment were attacked by timber
wolves while the men were absent
trapping. With the few rifles left in
the camp the women defended them-
selves until 1 be ammunition gave out
and their situation became perilous.
An Indian boy thought of some sticks
of dynamite for use in lakes when
fishing was bad. A bundle of them
with caps and fuses v. us thrown
among the wolves and the explosion
killed 30 wolves and frightened off the

Every man who is the head of a
family has somewhere in the back of
bis mind a desire to own a home of
his own for himself and his family.
That this desire has not been grati-
fied may be due to any number of
things, but the one that prevents most
people from owning the house In
which tliey live Is that tl'ey never
really started to acqoiie a home.
For the average person, buying a
home is a considerable undertaking,
one that means the diking on of an
olUigation that will require a number
of years to pay. The Investment looks
large and will probably requirt Rome
sacrifices, but once a start Is made
the satisfaction more than repays the
No man. however, should undertake
to buy a home that costs more than
it is reasonably certain lie will be
able to pay for. This error Is the
reason that lias caused m. ny to lose
their homes after a start toward own-
ing them has been made. Good judg-
ment in picking the site and in erect-
ing a home that meets the neetls of
the family and at the same time will
riot require a larger investment than
can be handled, are two essentials In
successfully acquiring n home.
A« a suggestion to those prospective
are three bedrooms and the bathroom.
The entrance from the porch leads
directly into the living room. This
room Is 14 feet 0 Inches by 18 feet 0
inches. Connected with It by a double-
] cased opening is the library, 10 feet 0
I inches by 8 feet. Hack of the living
room aJso connected with a double-
cased opening is the dining room, 13
feet 0 Inches by I I feet d Inches, while
adjoining the dining room is the
kitchen, 0 feet ti inches by 11 feet 6
Inches. All four of these rooms are
corner rooms ami are so connected
' that the distance from any Hie of
them to another is the shortest pos-
1 slide. It will be noted by the plan
I that theTiltchen may be reached from
the living room through a hall out of
which run the stairs to the second
floor. All the rooms are well pro-
vided with windows, making them
light and cheery ami at the same time
The dormers, front and back, give
a great amount of light and air to two
of the three bedrooms, while the third
is In one gable and the bathroom in
the other. The front bedroom is 11
by 14 feet, ami the rear bedroom 10
by 1-1 feet. The third room is larger.
If) feet (1 Inches by l'J feet 0 Inches.
Also the bathroom is larger than
usually is found. It being 8 feet wide
and I) feet long. All of the rooms
open off a central hall.
A basement extends under the
whole of the house proper, which is .'14

feet 0 Inches deep by 28 feet In width,
with a porch projection of feet 0
Inches. This basement provides plenty
of room for the laundry, the heating
plant and fuel storage, and rooms for
vegetables and fruit ami for the stor-
age of garden and lawn tools and the
other articles that usually find their
way to the basement.
From this brief description of the
Interior it will be seen that this
house will provide comfortable ac-
commodations for a good-sized family.

ALHKAL Y a few new skirts for
fall i ave arrived. They made a
quiet entry because they differ little
in style from those worn In spring
and summer. Manufacturers, it seems,
weaving materia1* to lie used exclu-
sively for skirts, have continued to
present striped and plaid patterns in
Woolen goods that Invite the ingenuity
of designers in making attractive
models. In cloth skirts the same
long, straight lines emphasized by
plaits, appear In the fall models, thnt
were characteristic of spring skirts.
None of the new skirts are narrow,
and all of them are longer than those
of last season—hut it remains to be
proved that American women will ac-
cept a much lengthened skirt, so hems
are only basted in and length left to
the discretion of the wearer.
There is also the usual variety of
plaits, with knife and tccordion plait-
ing well represented among them. Hut
each piece of striped or plaid mute-
! rial suggests several varieties of plait-
Ings according to the fancy of tho
designer, l'iaited and plain panels al-
ternate on some of the new models,
and occasionally long lines are broken
by a yoke made plain with plaited
portion set on it. Buttons in many
sizes and in graduated sizes promise
a new development in the matter of
decoration for fall skirts, and they
take to the company of belts ami
pockets. A few smart skirts display
small buttons following each other
! from belt to hem the full length of the
The plain materials—either wool or
silk, panels and tunics have every
reason to succeed. Separate skirts
have become so important in the ward-
, lube that women demand them in va-
riety A pretty skirt of black char-
incuse satin is shown in the picture
with panels at back and front form-
ing a long tunic having plaited ruf-
1 ties along Its edges.

A well known statesman was pres-
ent at a dinner party. At his side sat
an old country gentleman.
A conceited young man spent most
of his time during t' meal lu making
fun of this old go-." man. He kept
on referring to him as the Philistine.
1 Finally the old gentleman said an-
grily : "I don't know what you meat*
by continuously repeating that word.
I really can't think what you mean by
j a IMilllstlne."
The statesmen Interrupted. "A
I Philistine," he said. "Is a man who Is
annoyed by the Jawbone of an ass."

home builders who are determined to
have a home, but vtlio are not able to
make a very large Investment, the ac-
companying building design is shown.
This Is not a large house, neither will
it cost much to erect. At the same
time it is attractive In exterior ap-
pearance and contains seven good
rooms. It will lit nicely on a 50-foot
lot and leave considerable space on
either side for light and ventilation.
The design of this home Is what
makes It so pleasing to the eye. The
sharp gables of the roof, together
with the long slope makes it a story-

dormers in the roof at both front and
back, three large bedrooms are pro-
vided on the second iloor. These
dormers also help to make the ex-

frame construction, set on a concrete
foundation. Ship-lap siding Is used
on both the exterior walls and the

I Home building costs vary consid-

and are controlled by the cost of la-
I I'or and the distance from source of

building material dealer can supply

j other house that a prospective builder
! may want to erect. Also these men
are experts In building materials and
can offer valuable suggestions to the

As has been said, securing a home
requires a strong desire to possess

willing to make some sacrifices. But
ufter the home is built ami occupied
there Is no more rent to pay, and a
great deal of satisfaction In the
1 knowledge that you have a home of

AT THIS time shops throughout Ihe
country are closing out the
last of their summer fabrics, and wom-
en take advantage of the sales and
low prices to replenish their supply
of summer dresses or anticipate their
needs for fall. In the case of the
two frocks pictured we welcome an
early fall aspirant for favor in one
of tliem and hid farewell to midsum-
mer styles In the other.
Dotted swIsses. in many pleasing
colors, with white or colored dots,
luixe' hud a wonderful vogue, the sev-
eral shades of blue with white dots,
having found the greatest number of
admirers. A dress of navy swiss. dot-
ted with white. n« shown at the right
of the picture, Is the lust of this year's
models In this particular color com-
bination. It brings up the rear of a
procession of attractive frocks In
which the swiss has been combined or
trimmed with white organdie. In this
particular case bands of embroidered
swiss organdie lend an Interest to the
model nnd the dress Is up to the de-
gree of excellence that has preceded
It in frocks of the same material.
Thus the dotted swiss makes its exit.
Non-crushahle linen Is the material
of many of the charming tailored
frocks which the bright days of sum-
mer have brought to view. The ma-
terial lends itself to a wide range of
colorings among which white, canary,
blue, lavender, green nnd rose and
leather seem to be the most popular.
f Immediately following come the ne*v
frocks of point de esprit made up with
lace in all-over nnd other patterns. 1
I This is a revival, since women are so
well disposed toward sheer fabrics, of
J an old and tried favorite. The model
pictured is designed for u young wom-
an aud will serve for either afternoon ^
or evening wear—one reason why it i
will prove interesting to mothers who |
are about to outfit th«'lr daughters who 1
are going nwny to school. It is just i
the character of dress for such youth- !
fill wearers. In this model the point
de esprit has an underskirt and body
« f all-over lace. The fullness and ■
length of the skirt must not lie over 1
looked, or the shape of the waist with 1
Its square neck. The neck opening Is
bordered with lace and partly tilled
In with a plain piece of point de esprit.
There are three narrow frills of lace
on the short sleeves and a youthful
sash of narrow ribbon with a wreath
