Harry Wilson Felt Like He
Couldn't Last Very Much
HIS RELIEF SURPRISING
«t Feel Like Tanlac Has Made a New
Man of Me and I'm Glad to Rec-
ommend It," He Declarea.
MA gain of twenty pounds on two
bottles of Tanlac is going some, but
that Is Just what happened to me sine#
I began using it," said Harry D. Wil-
son, an employee of the Humble Oil
Company at their Goose Creek, Texas,
plant, the other day.
"I had a spell of malarial fever
sometime ago," he continued, "and
wasn't able to get straightened out af-
terwards. My system was badly run-
down. I lost my appetite and had to
live almost exclusively on a diet of
raw or very soft boiled eggs. My head
ached so I thought It would split,
rheumatism made me miserable and
my system was clogged up with ma-
laria. I fell off to a hundred and
twenty-eight pounds and was in such
a bad fix I believe I couldn't have last-
ed much longer.
"I was sure surprised to find this
Tanlac getting hold of my troubles be-
fore I had taken many doses. I feel
hungry all the time and am actually
ashamed to eat enough to satisfy my
appetite. My weight has Increased to
a hundred and forty-eight pounds and
I feel fine In every way. I have got
over that tired and drowsy feeling and
have more life and energy than I have
had in several months. I feel like

• New York.—This is a vastly exciting
time in the fashion zone. It Is not
alone exciting because women want
new clothes for a new season, but for
the more Important reason that com-
merce In this country Is entirely en-
tangled In the Industry of clothes.
A question as to what will be worn
Is supposed to concern Itself with wom-
an's vanity. Never was there such a
foolish conclusion. The question of
what will be worn Is inextricably
mixed up with the lives of millions
of Industrial workers In this country,
and upon Its Judicious adjustment de-
pend the bread and butter, the happi-
ness and the ability to be free from
nervous depression of thousands of
men too old or too young to fight and
thousands of women who have not the
leisure to offer their services to war
It Is a curious thing that the woman
who wants to know, even through an
assumed Indifference, whether her coat
and skirts are in fashion, should be so
densely Ignorant of the vast ramifica-
tions of fashions Into the Innermost
recesses of American life.
No one laughs at fashions In Paris.
No one takes them lightly. Every one
regards them as a supreme branch of
French Industry that brings welfare
to millions. Each artist takes his or
her deslgps for new clothes under seri-
ous consideration, and the state ac-
cords them the merit or demerit that
Now, what have these great de-
signers done for America this season?
That Is the leading question among the
shopkeepers, the dressmakers, the mil-
lions of woman workers In the In-
dustry of clothes, the mills, the manu-
facturers, the Importers and the ex-
We know that the styles for the
autumn have been settled, but the
desired because it has been featureo
by a few of the great French dress-
makers. The fabric is difficult to de-;
scribe, because it owes everything to;
Its manner of weaving.
Pol ret uses an unusual amount of
black and white and brings back
quantities of black and white Jet lav-
ishly arranged ou frocks with a Slavic;
or Oriental tendency.
His evening gowns feature the hlglv
line at the neck, which he has alwaytf
sponsored. His wife, a beautiful woman;
who wore his clothes better than any-
one else, always adopted the evening
gown which showed only two or more
Inches of the neck and dropped In a
flexible line to a low belt.
Pol ret will never give up the skirt
that suggests Turkish trousers. It is
almost as much a symbol of Ills work
as the flat, red rose that he used In his
Martlne house decorations. He does
not object to the separate bodice of
velvet that forms part of the evening
gown, although he has watched a good
many other dressmakers use It since
he Invented It nearly half a dozen
Lanvin Is Slavic.
There have be^n so many things In
common between Paul Polret and
Jeanne Lanvin for so many years that
some dressmakers have Insisted that
' 'they are related or that the houses
are commercially connected. The per-
sonalities of these two designers in
France are as different as can be, even
beyond the fact that one Is a woman
and one Is a man.
Therefore, It is not surprising that
while I'olret clings to the sumptuous
effects of an exotic past, Lanvin also
continues to hammer upon the anvil
of Slavic and Russian fnshions.
She has gone to Serbia and Ron-
mania for inspiration and probably
draws a color, a line or a suggestion

Here are two evening gowns that suggest the directolre. At the left is
a dinner frock of pink silk and mallnes lace. The silk coat has a peplum
that turns into pockets, and there are lace sleeves. The skirt of lace hangs
In ragged points at the ankles. At the right the gown Is of pale lilac taffeta,
embroidered on the lower sleeves In pale green, yellow and pink. The
bodice is finished with a loose band of colored beads and fastened with neck
lace of purple velvet ribbon.
COSTLY CHIMES FOR CADETS
Big Set of Bells Is Being Made for
Chapel at United States Military
Academy at West Point.
What Is said will be the most costly
chime of bells In America and one of
the most musical sets In existence Is
now being made at the foundry of the
Meneely Bell company of Troy, N. Y.,
for the massive tower of cadet chapel,
Rev. H. P. Silver, chaplain, at the
United States military academy, West
Point, as the gift of Mrs. James M.
Lawton, In memory of her father, the
late. MaJ. Gen. Robert Anderson, who
was graduated from the academy In
1825, and whose brilliant command of
Fort Sumter at the outbreak of the
Civil war has thrilled millions of read-
ers of American history, says the
There will be 12 bells In the chime,
the largest welfchlng nearly two tons
and measuring 56 Inches at Its mouth.
The cadet chapel Is of stone, quarried
from rock found on the military
grounds, and cost to build about half
a million dollars. Its commanding po-
sition on the hill back from the Hud-
son river makes an Ideal place for
bells, and the patriotic airs from the
chime will sound throughout the beau-
tiful highlands, In the midst of which
the military academy Is situated, and
prove a source of Inspiration to the fu-
ture generals of the United States

masses do not know what each de-
signer has done and what each great
fashion establishment ha« sponsored.
To begin with, Paul Polret has again
opened his house, to show models.
That Interesting little sign that went
up over his house on the Avenue
d'Antln, which was also placed on
many other doors, saying that the
place would be closed until the end
of the war, has been taken down.
France may have foreseen a long war,
but her people felt that things would
come to a crisis before the fourth year
Waistline Below Normal.
Polret Is always Important; there-
fore, what he shows Is of Interest. To
begin with, he features the waistline
which Is dropped below the normal,
In the Oriental manner. There Is very
little that would ever appeal to Polret
In the first and MOM ••mplre fash-
ions. He Is strongly barbaric In what
he does. He has a genius for fabrics.
He knows the art of weaving and dye-
ing better than most artists In Paris
do, and he has special places that work
out his ideas. Therefore, he lias been
able to make frocks In the new kind
of plush which will be very hard to
get In this country, but which will be
from the Cossacks of central Russia.
In direct contrast to these short, bril-
liant Slavic clothes, she has put out
a most dignified evening gown, The
skirt is quite long, but without a train,
and the belt Is nearly over the hlp-
llne. The top part of the skirt has
the tightness of the days of the Renais-
sance, and Judging by the many things
that Lanvin Is doing, as well as other
French dressmakers, It looks as though
the loose blouse In any form will soon
belong to a day that Is done.
This Is not startling news to the
American woman, because the smartly
dressed young women have been
adopting the tight bodice aud the long,
tight sleeves In their summer clothes,
even making them of glngbatn and
especially of Jersey cloth.
Lanvin nlso exploits the large waist*
coat In various materials, to be worn
under a coat suit and to serve as a
blouse or Jerkin when the coat Is re-
