He is one of the organizers of the

The route will be by way of Ber-
ing straits. The point of final de-
parture has not been finally decided
upon, but probably will be somewhere
between Point Barrow and Bank's
land, the plan being to take advan-
tage of the Japan current and to drift
as far north under its Influence as pos-
sible before sending out the several
First the party will establish a wire-
less telegraph station at Cape Wash-
ington, Melville Land, one at Franz Jo-
seph Land, one at Spitzbergen and one
at Point Harrow. They will also have
nne of the vessels start from Point
Barrow and proceed toward the pole,
carrying as an aid in steering a
•.gyroscope of special construction,
which will enable the navigator to
keep his course regardless of the
•compass, and will further indicate the
distance traveled by registering the
•arc through which the vessel travels
in a given time.
A specially constructed submarine
boat will be taken, fully equipped .for
long journeys under floating ice. It
will carry a wireless outfit by means
-of which the flagship may be always
kept Informed of its movements. The
flagship will be equipped with a spe-
cial telescoping mast of great height,
which can be used for observation pur-
poses and from which photographs
may be taken to indicate open water

of having attached to its staff a young
woman who has the requisite knowl-
edge and skill to cover baseball and
football games, horse races and ath-
letic sports of various kinds.
The young woman—she is only 24
years old—who holds down the sport-
ing editor's desk on the Chronicle-
News so well that the applications of
male candidates for the job are never
considered, is Miss Ina Eloise Young.
When she was asked to tell how it

for three years—general reporting, and

"It was by accident that 1 became
sporting editor of my paper two years
ago. At the opening of the baseball
season, which, in the west, is the only
real sporting season of the year, there
was not a man on the paper who could
even keep a box score or knew prac-
tically anything of the game. I do
know baseball, for I learned it about
the time when boys of my age learn
to play ball. My brother taught me
the game because he always needed
somebody to fill a base or some posi-
tion, and I could do it.
"When I grew up he taught me how
to keep score and I evolved a method
of my own of following the players
from home plate around to that sta-
tion again—if they could do it.
"I began covering games to fill In
until a man could be secured for the
position, and have been doing It ever
since, the managing editor consider-
ing my work sufficiently good to
guarantee keeping me.
"Since then I've done football games,
as I learned to understand that game
while I was a high school student and
subsequently during my college work
at the University of Colorado. I be-
lieve I've covered all sorts of sporting
events with the exception of prize
fights, which I have never been re-
quired to do.
"Understanding baseball and liking
it best, I naturally do my best work
with those games. I love to do horse
raoes, however, but as there have been
no races here for more than a year,
I have grown a trifle rusty in that
kind of work.
"I ride horseback, but all western
girls do that. In covering events that
happen in the mining ramps around

But to return to our subject. The
throbbing chant of summer is begun,
and man and beast avoid the midday
sun, the cow wades in the pond with
out a shudder and gets great gobs of
mud upon her udder, the calves begin
to nibble at the grass, and soon we'll
bave them in the weaning class, the
old brood mare begins to switch her
tali, for flies appear In June and sel-
dom fail, the maiden dons her light-
est, gauziest clothes and ugly freckles
form upon her nose. The blossoms
sweet, the roses fair exhale their fra-
grance on the air, the ants invade the
pantry shelves, and lovers spoon all
to themselves, the maiden dons the

through, the clover blossoms, insects
hum, and bumble bees are on the bum.

The first shown is a graceful skirt of pale mauve silk, with a wide band
'round the foot painted with a handsome design of clematis In shades of
mauve with brownish green foliage. The short-walsted blouse is of crepe-de.
chine, made quite plainly, the deep swarthed band is of silk of a darker shada
than that used for the skirt. The cape and tinder-sleeves aro of lace, the
points of the cape being finished by silk tassels. The high crowned hat is
covered with silk like the dress; it is trimmed with a chenille spotted veil
and clusters of pale pink roses.
The second illustration is in the palest green French delaine, patterned
with violets of three shades. The under-sklrt is of sateen, with a deep
fhaped flounce of delaine. The over-skirt and the kimono bodice are edged
with dark green silk, cut on the cross; the underaiip, with three-quarter
bleeve, is of piece lace. Pale green straw hat, lined with chiffon of a darker
shade, it is trimmed with roses and tinted foliage.
Materials required for the dress: 12 yards delaine 27 inches wide, J ft
yard silk 22 inches wide, 5% yards sateen, 3% yards lace, 18 inches wide.
EDGINGS FOR PILLOW CASES.
Crochet Work the Best for Use in the
Crocheted edgings make a pretty
and useful finish for pillow cases used
during the summer, when simple bed
furnishings are preferred to the more
ornate. Many women keep a bit of
this crochet work at hand to do when
enjoying the cool breezes of the ver-
anda or whiling away a few minutes
In their rooms. It makes excellent
The favorite crochet pattern for this
use is the Greek key, which is made
with the corner worked in the lace.
For shams the corner is necessary,
but for the pillow cases straight cro-
chet is all that Is required. The
Greek key pattern is about two Inches
in width, with a battlemented edge.
The key design runs through the upper
Bide of the lace.
A wheel pattern looks well when
used this way and is simpler to make
on account of being narrower. The fa-
vorite one has a row of wheels through
the center and a fan-shaped edge.
The Worcester cross border is an-
other effective pattern if one likes a
wider lace. When made it is at least
three inches In width.
SPEND TIME ON THE COIFFURE.
Simple Effects Require Patience and
Present coiffures reveal infinite pa-
tience and infinite time in the doing,
and the effect is simple and artless In
the extreme. No more of your round
bullet heads* encircled with regular
and almost metallic waves achieved by
the systematic passage of a hot iron
mathematically balanced, and sur-
mounted by a geometrical coil of pre-
cise proportions and definite outline-
all this is now thought provincial,
prim, graceless, not to say demode.
Instead, the hair is bundled, rolled,
twisted and looped with the appear-
ance of carelessness and indefinite in-
tention, high drawn here, drooping
there, now sweeping in a smooth, long,
flat stretch of shining lock, then break-
ing into a witching tendril or fascinat-
ing curl. The iron crumples up this
little spot, or a bit of brilllantine
smoothes out that, after the coiffure
Is almost completed, as the exigencies
of the hair ornament or hat suggest.
No two women wear their hair alike,
save that it is done over, Invariably,
for the evening in a more elaborate
fashion than for the morning.—Vogue.

Old Jewelry Fashionable.
Bring out your old-time trinkets this
summer, as they will be fashionable,
no matter how ancient they may be.
Old-fashioned necklaces will be espe-
cially in favor, and those with long
pendants are preferred. One such set
seen recently in the east was of the
bunch-of-grapes design, and attracted
a great deal of attention, but they
wero not used as earrings, but as
pendants for a necklace that was made

A Sensible Idea.
In a certain home is a large reading
table and in the center of it is fas-
tened a hand-wrought mission lamp
that cost $12. It Is securely fastened
to the center of the table with iron
screws and bolts underneath the table.
The owner explained that the lamp
was necessary in the room and the
children liked to play games on the
table or It was a favorite place for
study and they lived in constant dread
of a lamp being tilted until the idea of
fastening it securely to the table was

Olive oil is good for many things and
should be much used, not only at table,
but in the massaging of the body. In
the case of nervous troubles or a run-
down condition of the system It may
be taken both internally and external-
ly with great profit. Massage with
olive oil and afterwards rub down
with a Turkish towel and the result
will soon be felt. It is also recom-
mended as good for catarrh, whether
of the throat or the stomach.
Bridge coats and blouses of every
description are again to the fore, and

By FRANK D. Ln LANNE,
Pre*i«Jeut u( National Hoard of Trade
X our si tidy of history we find that most of the records toll
of tlu' exploit* of the warrior, the conquests of arms. The
conquests of pence are not as seriously written about, yet the
thoughtful reader is wont to pick from his hooks tlieir results
and note how .the greatest commercial nations planted colo-
nics. carried civilmilion and peace wherever commerce went,
and how great cities and countries were created, whose sta-
bility stood for wealth, progress, and enlightenment and.
The Phoenicians, those greatest of early traders, banded
i boards of trade the merchants of their great cities, who con-
friendlv rivalrv for the trade of the world. Later we tind the
like purposes did the Hanselie league maintain an army and a navy, but
only as guardians of the peace of the world.
This is a brief synopsis of the merchants' influence upon civilization,
happiness and peace of the world : but let us not think that the business
man desires peace at any cost, for the stability of commerce; he is no less
;; patriot than any other citi/eu, and the records show that he willingly
sacrifices his fortune and his life if need be in defense of his country
How best shall we continue at peace? We want an adequate annual
increase in our navv to keep us abreast of other first-class powers, so that
like the Hanseatie league whose armed ships were called "Peace Ships,"
our fleet may be called the "Squadron of Peace," and when the Panama
canal is finished, it will be strong enough to insure peace on the east and
west coasts of North and South America.
Stability resulting from universal peace is the hope of every mer-
chant, and in the light of progress thus far made he sees not far off
the realization of his hope.
The agreement by all nations for the creation of an International
court in prize cases, alone, is worth all the work done and time expended
by the Hague Peace Conference. The agreement that force of arms
shall not be resorted to to collect contract debts till arbitration has been
carried through and disobeyed, is of much value to the world. To have
two-thirds of the nations of the world agree to the old favorite American
doctrine, that private property of enemies at war even if carried in ene-
mies' bottoms, shall be exempt from capture, is a victory but deferred.
Is it not an important step taken by the second Hague conference
towards the speedy accomplishment of our most chcrished hope, the per-
manent establishment of an "International Court of Arbitration," that all
nations voted that such a court ought to be created, and that the confer-
ence agreed to a scheme, functions, organization and procedure of such
n court? A stumbling block as to the method of appointing the judges
prevented for the time the full accomplishment, hut I am glad to say
our able secretary of state, Mr. Hoot, is hopeful that objections may be
smoothed out by diplomacy, and such a method for selecting the judges
be adopted, so that the court may be established without awaiting for
another Hague conference. ,

It has been well said that "Coal is the
earth's great storage battery of solar ener-
gy. In the natipn's welfare it represents
the basis of heat, light and power upon
which the nation's comfort and the nation's
industries depend. Man may replant the
forests and the rivers will resume their
courses to the sea, but the vegetation neces-
sary to produce coal cannot be restored,
once it has been exhausted."
The present generation has no moral
right to destroy those resources which were
not created by man or given solely to us. |
Our extravagant wastefulness in the
use of our fuel supply, both in production and consumption, is equaled
only by our criminal disregard of the personal safety and the lives of
the men who toil in the mines. For ever}' 190,000 tons of coal produced
a mine worker is k+llcd and several are seriously injured. For each 1,000
men employed, 3.40 are killed annually. Last year nearly 2.500 men were
killed and more than fi,000 were seriously injured in the mining industry
of our country. No other country in the world shows so large a percent-
age of fatalities. Indeed, in those foreign countries in which mining is
most hazardous the proportion of men killed to the number of employed is
from 50 to 75 per ecnt. less than in our country.
It is a sad commentary upon our vaunted civilization that more men
are killed or crippled in mining in the United States than in any other
nation on earth. In our mad rush for spoils and profits we do not only
waste and destroy those material resources with which '
God has so bountifully endowed us, but we press for-
ward in the race sacrificing also unnecessarily the lives
and the comfort of our fellow-beings. It seems to me
that the time has come when we should stop a moment
to think—not alone of these inanimate things that
make for comfort and prosperity, but also of the men
and women and the children whose toil and deprivation
have made and will continue to make our country and
our people the most progressive and the most intelligent
of all the nations and all the peoples of the earth.
The mother is the one who crer stands
