Where Husbands Weir Wadding Ring*
The women In Braxll hate not equal
suffrage, but they have an equality
with the men of their country which
lit not enjoyed by their North Ameri-
can aisters. All Brazilian husbands are
expected to wear their wedding rings
as conscientiously as their wives, and
generally they do so. The rlnf la a
plain gold band, the same as that
worn by wives in the United States.
The women In Braxll unanimously are
oCthe opinion that this la about the
last word In equality.
ACT TOO OFTEN

troable which causes too frequent or excee-
efae pumge of urine, don't expect relief
from medicines that are intended for com-

Wouieu seem to have become much
addicted to wearing neckpieces of
many kinds. A little Journey through
shops and departments that carry
neckwear reveals such a world of It
and such a variety of It that there
must be a great demand for all kinds
of neckwear. Many of the pieces are
intended to replace summer furs.
These Include scarfs made of plushes,
ostrich boas, ostrich capes and capes
of marabout feathers or marabout flu-
bbed with ostrich fringe. This os-
trich fringe, which appears like mara-
bout In black, white and natural color,
Is used In borders and bands In scarfa
of gold and silver tissue.
Some of the new plushes used for
scarfs do not attempt a close Imita-
tion of fur but suggest the most pop-
lar summer furs, as ermine and broad-
tall and moleskin. Besides these
there are some handsome satin scarfs
and capes trimmed with narrow bands
of real fur, shown with hats to match
like the smart afTalr that is shown at
the right of the two figures above.
Rich silk tassels and silk embroidered
motifs put this In a class with the
Both ostrich and marabout make
beautiful capes In the style of that
shown at ihe right of the picture.
Nearly all of these are lu the natural
taupe color of the feathers, but I# os-
trich capes and boas there Is often a
mixture of white and natura! flues.
Huffs made of mallnes In very full
plaits and ruffs made of loops of wide
satin ribbon are among old acquaint-
ances that find themselves returned to
favor, now that everything In neckwear
proves to be of Interest. They are not
at all difficult to make, the plaits or
loops are simply stitched on to a band
that lies about the neck, and they fas-
ten with ties of narrow satin ribbon.
Small chokers and other small neck-
pieces In furs appear to have displaced
larger neckpieces and capes for sum-
mer wear and narrow scarfs of satin,
finished at the ends with fringe, prove
themselves a chic novelty on women
who know how to wear them well.
A Bodice of Ribbon.
The bodice made entirely of ribbon
Is a feature of midsummer dance
frocks—combined with skirts of either
net. both silk and cotton; organdie,
voile, lace and georgette.

One-piece dresses, to be worn In
of suits In and out of doors, re-
ceived a great boost during the wM.
When tailors became scarce and the
work of making street clothes went
Into the bands of dressmakers In Paria,
the one-piece "all-day" dress began to
replace suits. With the spproval of
Paria upon It this style of street dress
made great headway In America and
appears to have established Itself.
The all-day dress, as It Is called, ap-
pears, together with new suits. In the
early showings of fsll styles, some-
times having much the appearance of
a suit and sometimes wholly different
from one. These two types are shown
together In the picture above.
These dresaes are made up la the
Wm quiet colors sad of the same ma-
tarlals aa suits, although colors cover
• wider ranee tbaa are usually pl-
acated In suits, sad there is more latl-
taie la the matter of dauiiaUsaa.

"You wouldn't give them rides any-
where else but on your backs, would
you?" asked the Dromedary.
"I don't believe we would," ssld
"You wouldn't give them rides on
your ears, would your asked the
"No, we wouldn't," said Cousin
Camel without a smile.
"Nor would we give them ridea on
our toes," said Campbell Camel. "Yes,
the Dromedary is right. We give them
rides on our backs and nowhere else."
"I don't believe a king or a queen
or a president or a governor or even
a teacher could think up any other
way of carrying people," he ended.
"Why does a teacher so especially
Interest you?" asked the Dromedary.
"A teacher teaches," said Campbell
Camel. "Anyone who can teach
would have to know everything to
■Oh," said the Dromedary, "you're
a foolish pair In your talk. In your
thoughts and In your looks. You're
beautiful In the winter when you
have few visitors and In the summer
you're sights, awful sights."
"Well," said Campbell Camel from
his ward. "If you hadn't added that
one word I would not have had the
least Idea Just which way to take
"I don't know what word you mean,
said the Dromedary, "but I do know
that I do not wish to be taken by
you anywhere at all, or In anyway or
fashion." ' n
"I wasn't going to take you away."
said Campbell Camel.
"But you said something about It"
said the Dromedary.
"I said that if you hadn't used one
word I wouldn't have known how to
have taken you—or. In other words,
to hsve understood you."
"Oh. yhat's different" eald the
Dromedary. "Well, what was the one
word which made so much differ-
"You said first that In the summer
we were sights. Now I wouldn't have
known whether you thought we were
beautiful without our fine coats, or
what until you said that In the anm-
mer we were awful sights, and that
made It quite clear to me." The
camel grinned foolishly and chewed
from side to side.
"Of course, as we said the other
day," Campbell Camel continued, "we
are so silly that that la why wa do
things In such a queer way."
"Now I have no long hair at all,"
said the Dromedary.
"Poor dear." said the Camel.
«Tm not a deer. I'm a dromedary—

"He tells me there are lots of mos-

"Why, mister, I don't see's he ought

"What has that to do with It?"
"Well, you see, pap's got a system.
When anybody asks about summer
board they always mention mosqui-
toes. If pap likes their looks he tells
the truth, which Is that we hsven't
seen a skeet In ten years; but If folks
don't happen to please him he draws
on his Imagination and fills the air
with winged terrors."
Thankful for Small Favore.
The other evening a young matron
was scolding her husband for having
forgotten to observe their fifth wed-
ding anniversary. Her single sister,
a town schooltescher, happened to
come to their house In time to hear
a great part of the lecture. At Its
end she turned to the defense of her
brother-in-law. "I think you should
be thankful enough for having had the
wedding without expecting annlver-
irles," she told her sister.

of the youngsters.

the rest of the family.
That afternoon the architect mada
a return trip and displayed his plans
to the elder sister. The high-school
boy arrived while the two of them
were on the veranda looking over tha
plans. After the architect had gone
he strolled over to his sister, and ra-
marked: "I see you're trying to get
