A rookie at Great Lakes was noted
for being late. He was always the
last to l>e dressed and the last to turn
•out. At last the company commander,
■exasperated by the rookie's tardiness,
called him to the front of the com-
pany and said: "Say, are you with us
In this war or not?"

GET HER BREATH
On Account of Tight, Smothering
Feeling, Caused From Aching
Lump in Stomach. Black-
Draught Relieved This
Kings Mountain, Ky.—Mrs. BeUe
Jenkins, of this town, says: "For
about four years I suffered with stom-
ach trouble. It seemed like a lump
formed in my stomach and I could
bardly get my breath for the tight,
smothering feeling. This lump, or
whatever it was, ached constantly. I
couldn't sleep at night. I had no appe-
tite and I began falling off. I am nat-
nrally a large woman but Just weighed
135 lbs. I got so nervous I felt I could
not stand it any longer. I knew in my
condition I could not live long.
We had one doctor, he said 'indiges-
tion.' I took medicine from him, but
It did not seem to help me any. We
had another doctor. He said it was
'neuralgia of the stomach.' I took his
medicine, still there was that aching
lump. Finally the doctor decided it
might be a decayed tooth, and advised
me to have my teeth drawn, which I
did. I didn't get any better.
One night my husband brought home
a sample of Black-Draught. I had been
tmusually restless. I took the sample
next morning. I told him I believed I
felt better. He brought home a pack-
age, and two packages cured me and I
fully believe saved my life. I weigh
183 lbs. and am the picture of health."

If, therefore, the American women
were not free thinkers regarding
clothes, and were merely led into each
fashion by a comfortable noose that
was pulled along by the merchants
and dressmakers, it was because they
placidly felt that this was the best
path in which they should tread.

The American buyers were not en-
thusiastic, It Is true, over the purchas-
ing of hundreds of French gowns, al-
though they spent on Immense amount
of money out of pure g«>od will and tak-
ing a gamble. The prices were beyond
all limitations set for clothes. Frunce
said she was compelled to ask such
pricey and the American buyers <
thought they were compelled to give
thcln; but they assert themselves as
determined never to do It again.
Two hundred and fifty dollars was
a simple price for any gown. Two
hundred dollars was asked for a mus-
lin without lace or embroidery. Callot
asked from live to six hundred dollars
apiece for her evening frocks. Now
add to that the 60 per cent duty which
every merchant must pay to our cus-
toms. There were some gowns that
cost a thousand dollars to laud. What
would be the return on such clothes?
No American woman would buy them.
America's Narrow Skirt.
It may be remembered that last sea-
son America invented the skirt with
the slight bustle and the bias folds g
ing upward from the knee to the back.
It Is claimed that a French designer
sent to this country for twelve of these
sketches, and adopted the bustle In def-
erence to American wishes. Good evi-
dence for the truth of this statement
is shown in the bustle which a certain
French house has sent to this country.
Another piece of alteration that is
given away by good dressmakers Is
adding to a frock a narrow plain under-
skirt and cutting the gown itself 10 to
12 inches shorter, and letting it fall as
a tunic with a girdle over the new ad-
dition. This eliminates the flares in
the chemise robe of yesterday and
gives one the proper silhouette.
As long as it is fashionable to wear
two or three materials In combination
one is not called upon to match the
one-time chemise gown In cloth or
color when adding a separate under-
skirt over which to drop It. Black
satin goes with blue serge, beige cloth
or brown gaberdine. It also goes with
plaids and checks; and on the other
hand Scotch designs in woolen and
other fabrics are used for skirts.
Tunics of plain material are combined
with these skirts by the best dress-
makers, and therefore the amateur
sewing woman need not be timid li>
making the same combination.

Paris Shops Are Showing Many Small
Models That Are Attractive for
In the Paris shops are shown many
satin hats, extremely small models that
are excellent for spring wear, writes a
correspondent. They have satin trim-
ming, if they have any—for the lines
of the hats are what make them smart.
Two exceptionally pretty chapeaux
were seen recently. One was of black
j milan straw with a satin brim In mill-
; tary blue; the only embellishment was
supplied by grosgraln ribbon and black
ostrich. The ribbon bow was made In
I tiny loops and ends, and was placed at |
I the back of the hat, a little to the side.
The ostrich was at the extreme left
' edge of the brim. In front
The other model had a black 11 sere

.There are many quaint twists In the
brim of hats. The designers seem to
feel that the more peculiar the brim
the smarter the hat. Ribbon is used
extensively and oh, so many flowers.
We have rose toques, violet toques and
many other kinds, and this revival of
French flower hats has helped to revive
our flower Industry and for this we are

< ftoductr And Consumer >
The consumer wants to pay a low
price for meat.
The farmer wants to get a high
price for cattle
The packer stands between these
conflicting demands, and finds it im-
possible to completely satisfy both.
The packer has no control over the
prices of live stock or meat, and the
most that can be expected of him is
that he keep the difference between
the two as low as possible. He does
this successfully by converting animals
into meat and distributing the meat
at a minimum of expense, and at a
profit too small to be noticeable in the
farmer's returns for live stock or in the
meat bill of the consumer.

By what other method can the dif-
ference between cattle prices and beef
prices be made smaller, and how can
the conflicting demands of producer
and consumer be better satisfied ?
