In whatever corner of the world It
flourishes a graceful colorful dress Is
meat for the designers of negligees
They seize upon it and use it as it
Is or interpret it to suit themselves
In fabrics that they have at hand
Beautiful Japanese and Chinese gar-
ments are bought In their native coun-
tries and sold to Americans to wear
as they are Who would think of
taking the liberty of changing any-
thing so exquisite? Not all of them
blossom only in the privacy of homes
for splendid mandarin conts challenge
comparison with the handsomest eve-
ning wraps One thing that entices
the buyer of fine Japanese and Chi-
nese garments is the stability of their
styles They are and were and will
be good
It is not necessary to attempt a de-
scription of the wonderful kimono
shown at the right of the two figures
pictured above This enfolding dress
Is simply a graceful background of
soft silk for rich embroideries of the
iris and wisteria blossoms that are so
dear to the Japanese On a light
gray ground in natural colorings they
make the kimono a thing of beauty
and a joy forever
The pretty negligee at the left f the
figure Is In two pieces au underdress
with long flaring sleeves all made of
lace and an over garment that forms
a short cape at the back wltfi a front
of three overlapping panels It is
made of satin and embellished with
embroidery Wherever It was design'
ed it may lay claim to both ingenuity
and beauty
Wide laces — flouncing laces they are
called— make the way of the designer
easy and are used in many negligees
Over underslips of silk they form long
loose- coats Crepe-de-chine or fine
mercerized cotton goods are used with
them the laces in cream color and
the other fabrics In gay flowerlike
tints and colors All are washable
and very often narrow ribbons and lit-
tle flowers of ribbon or chiffon add an-
other charm to them The story of
negligees cannot be complete without
reference to the beautiful tnlTeta conts
In light colors to be worn over lace
Good-Looking Work-a-Day Dresses

Many farmers ore solving the labor
problem by using larger Implements
and more horses Such practices have
enabled sugar-beet growers greatly to
reduce their expenses for man labor
unci Increase tlielr operations The
normal man labor required in growing
sugar beets will vary from 80 to 133
hours or more an acre
Under average
more horses and
are used the man labor on machine
operations will be reduced approxi-
mately 25 per cent
A direct comparison of plowing
crews in Mlchlgun aud Ohio where
conditions under which the work Is
done are uniform shows that approxl-
niutely one hour an acre less of man
labor Is necessary to operate a plow
drawn by three horses than by two
With the larger outfit as also when a
tractor is used a float or plank can
he attached to tho plow and thus the
breaking of a cloddy surface can be
done with little additional effort or
cost In disking In the Michigan and
Ohio districts It was found that n
four-horse outfit saves one-quarter of
an hour of man labor an hour over
the two-horse equipment
Saving in Sugar Beets
Cultivation of sugar beets furnishes
a striking contrast in crew efficiency
In Michigan and Ohio it was found
that 19 man-hours an acre were re-
quired to cultivate once over with a
one-row Implement 16 man-hours
with a two-row cultivator and only 0
of a man-hour for a four-row cultiva-
tor — a distinct saving in man labor by
using the four-row machine As many
fields require attention before it is
possible for the grower to 'get the
work accomplished any saving of la-
bor and time Is an advantage to the
growing crops and affords more man
labor for crops competing with the
sugar beet in the distribution of labor

Approximately 100000000 acres of
corn In the United Stutes are annually
given two or more cultivations Culti-
vation Is considered essential In the
corn production The general purpose
of cultivation Is to promote the early
growth and later development of the
corn plant The usual type of culti-
vation is sometimes modified to meet
special conditions such as retarding
the vegetative growth of the plant by
cutting the corn roots In early cultiva-
tion The kind of cultivation will also
vary to some extent to meet the re-
quirements of different methods of
conditions where I Planting

Harvesters Mean Further Economy
An appreciable saving In farm labor
will undoubtedly be accomplished
through the development ofmechnnlc-
al harvesters The hand labor on
sugar beets comprising such opera-
tions as blocking thinning hoeing
pulling topping and loading consti-
tutes from 52 to 75 per cent of the to-
tal mnn labor required In growing the
crop The pulling topping and load-
ing when combined make up 24 to 42
per cent of the work Estimates made
by several growers show a variation
of 24 to 30 hours In the labor require-
ment for the hand work In harvesting
It is very apparent says the bulletin
that this amount can be reduced to n
few hours un acre with the introduc-
tion of the mechanical harvester
Cultivation la Essential In the Produc-
tion of Corn
Magic I- Just drop a little Freezone

tiny bottle for a few cents sufficient to
rid your feet of every hard corn soft
corn or corn between the toes and
calluses without one particle of pain
soreness or Irritation Freezone Is the
discovery of a noted Cincinn&ty genius
the soli mulch restored or excessive
run-off and evaporation will soon rob
the crop of much-needed moisture
Promptness In restoring the soil mulch
after each rain Is of great Importance
This work can be rapidly and less ex-
pensively performed by use of double
cultivators widened and by driving
astride each alternate row as by this
practice the mulch Is restored in half
the time necessary to drive astride of
every row
Corn should not be cultivated so
long as ttfe soil mulch Is In good condi-
tion and free of weeds Corn should
not be cultivated when the soil turns
up In clods breaking the corn roots
and permitting the soil to dry out to
a greater depth thau It would If not
