INFLUENCE OF DRESS

One Woman Asserts the Possession of
a New Hat Is Better for Her. Than
Any Medicine Beauty as
a Business Asset.
"Whenover I feci run down I always
buy a now hat" said a woman not long
ago with a laugh. "It 1b better
remedy than doctors and drugs and la
usually less expensive."
In the case of women who nro con-
tinually "In tho blues" this habit
might have drastic results but tbero

ter and with moro confidence under
tho stimulation of a pretty gown or
hat. "Clothes make tho man" so wo
are told. It is hardly realized how
much they aro responsible for tho
.making or marring of a woman.
Shabby clothes that have seen much
wear ahd tear and much attention
from the needlo and tho brush aro
very comtortablo to wear onco in a
while. When It becomes necessary to
don them day after day with no bopo
of their renewal they slowly and in-
sidiously begin to tell on tho spirits
of their wearer. They glvo a feeling
ot shabblness and the confidence and
right to a place In the world is partly
lost. This Is especially detrimental
to tho business woman for she is
taken very much at her own value in
'tho world ot commerce.
It Is not necessarily a very expen-
sive business to possess nice clothes.
A good tailored costume though dear-
er at the start is an economy for it
wears and keeps Its cut to tho end.
By merely renewing collar and cuffs
occasionally and varying tho blouse
with which it is worn the costume al-
ways remains fresh and gives Its
wearer the air of being well dressed.
It Is not always tho most oxpenslvo
and elaborato toilet that makes for
this much-desired effect.
It is a vexed question whether
beauty or clothes Improve a woman

in life to a woman but seen in an un-
suitable setting It loses much of Us
charm and will often bo eclipsed by
tho less attractive looks of a woman
who chooses her clothes well and
knows how to wear them. It Is gen-
erally understood from a certain typo
ot novel and play that beauty shines
anywhere under any conditions. Cer-
tainly nothing can actually take away
the contour of tho face the faithless-
ness ot tho complexion or tho beauty
of ho figure but all these may bo
overlooked ln.somo cases. The figuro
may be hidden behind an ugly dress
tho complexion may bo ruined by tho
color scheme and the contour of tho
faco lost under an unsuitable hat.
Famous Old People.
"Many famous Englishmen and not
n few distinguished Americans live to
a good old age but Franco holds1 tho
modern record for centenarians of re-

"Tho 1915 list of celobrltles abovo

Early Use of Pilot Balloons.
A note In tho Monthly Weathor Re-
view calls attention to tho fact "that
tho famous exploring expedition sent
out by tho French government under
La Pcrouso In 1785 carried a few small
balloons some ot paper and some of
goldbeaters' skin for use in studying
tho winds in the upper atmosphero
and that the instructions prepared for
tho expedition by the Academy of Sci-
ences pointed out the special im-
portance of using theso balloons in
tho trade wind region in order to as-
certain at what altitude the direction
of tho wind changes in that region.
Thus tho recent soundings ot tho
trade winds carried out under tho di-
rection of Profossor Hergcsell appear
to havo been anticipated by more than
a century. Scientific Amorlcnn.
Boots That Were Trousers.
As leather Is In such demand for
military purposes It Is fortunate that
present-day boots are made on a more
economical nlan than those In voeuo
at tho time ot tho Peninsular war and'
for many years after. Hessians v:hlch
were then tho fashion absorbed what
would now bo considered an unneces-
sary amount ot leather. These boots
according to O. A. Sala wcro "worn
over tight-fitting pantaloons tho un-
peaklng front almost touching the
knee and bearing a silk tassel the
back part sloped to the calf being full
below and with a high heel. Such
was the correct form ot footgear till

from both the young women. As soon

her husband to desperation and tho un

held good no longer.
Reynolds recovered himself suffi-
ciently to srallo a welcome and Inquire
why MrB. Drand had not accompanied
"She certainly would have come If
she had known Mr. Drand was here"
his wifo answered.
She stood reeardlne the two men In
a quizzical way scarcely concealing
the surprise she felt after Drand's
rather unconventional leave taking on
the grounds of business. Rob went to
her and took her band.
"Jane we've got company tonight.
You can't guess who."
"CompanyT" she asked Incredulous-
ly. "As late as this. Indeed I can't

"Yes he's here now. Up In tho den."

you had better hear Mr. Brand's side
of It now."
Ho was halt way up the stairs. He
stopped and looked significantly at the
"If I mint talk to Mrs. Reynolds to-
morrow will do" Drand said. "It's late
and she must be tired. So am I."
But Reynolds only kept backing up
"No" he said emphatically. "To-
night." Brand was eager to evade the Issue
and gain time for further persuasion
or compromise. He realized that Rey-
nolds In his present state of mind
would accept no pacification other
than his fall demand and he know too
that his own bulldog attack had failed.
Ho must olther pay tho money or be
placed In a perilous predicament and
Reynolds' retreat at this juncture bad
established a cut do sac from which
there was only ono escape. He turned
therefore to Jane as to a lust resort.
"Let's be seated Mrs. Reynolds"
he said as he approached ber face por-
traying now unconcealed alarm.
"What has happened?" stir asked
"Nothing Irreparable Mrs. Rey
nolds" the millionaire answered suave
ly "but your husband Is in a frame
ot mind I might say a mental condi-
tion that makes it impossible for me
to appeal to him either by argument
or a straight statement of facts. Ho Is
In a bad hole and now when he's
driven into a corner through bis own
asinine blundering he's not only
turned traitor to you and mo but ho's
a drunkard besides."
"Mr. Brand!" Jano exclaimed turn-
ing red with indignation and paling
with apprehension at the sudden
brutality ot hie words.
"Oh I don't mean that alone" he
answered Indicating the half emptied
bottle. "It's his brain that's drunk.
No matter in what direction ho turns
he's Intoxicated. He has lost bis per-
spective; his sense of proportion. He
tangles everything he goes into and

"I want to save you out ot the crash.
I don't want to see him take you along
"Take me with htm?" she said In
dazed tones. "What do you mean? Ob
please don't mince words Mr. Brand.
Tell me what has happened."
"Well then" he answered almost
defiantly "your husband Is broke."
"Broke I" Jane exclaimed rising and
sinking back as suddenly to tho divan.
"You mean he's bankrupt? Penniless?"
"Yes flat He's been gambling In
the street without my advice and to-
day ho went a little too far decidedly
too far" he added as he thought ot
tho overdraft that wonld have to come
out of his own pocket. "More than

Impatiently. "You haven't been out

rushing to her cheeks "I will not sit

forty thousand. Ho domands tho other
sixty or vows he'll tell everything.
Now is that blackmail or Is It not?"
Jano had no reply. The sudden
force ot Brand's attack had left Iter In-
ert. "I'm not talking this way to you ot
my own volition" he said. "Your huB-
band desired that I tell you everything
everything that a partner should
know. I am not through Mrs. Rey-
nolds. I want to state my side ot It.
Here It Is: For your sake and for
yours alone and because ot Mrs.
Brand's fondness for you I'll square
this thing at the bank. But that Is all
1 will do. I gave your husband $40-
000 In good faith and he accepted It
as such. Perhaps If he had asked for
one hundred thousand at that time I
would have granted the request but
not now when he demands It under
duress. You can tell him that. I guess
that's your end ot tho partnership ac-
cording to bis view. That Is all. We
are losing good sleep."
"Then I won't keep you any longer"
answered Jano with dignity. Some-
thing of hor old mastory and deter-
mination bad returned. Sho arose and
held out ber hand. She shuddered
slightly as ho took It and regretted
that she offered It. Tho man who bad
brandod hor husband as a criminal

Reynolds appeared suddenly on a
landing 'v.. the stairs.
"Good night Drand" he said.
"Through with your chat?"
"Quite through I think."
"I'll see you in the morning then."
The millionaire looked up bis hand
on the knob ot the door.
"Yes you can see me In the morn-

stubbornly. "I know what I've done

"But you can't do It; you shan't"
sho exclaimed. "Drand doesn't owe
you money. If you've lost yours we
wilt havo to suffer for It not Drand."
Her words acted as an Irritant to

away while be followed. Her back
was to the wall now and she crouched
almost as If she expected a blow.
"Yes crooks 1" he persisted In an-
swer to ber look of horror. "That's
what I said. Crooks!"
His hand was extended flst doubled.
But of a sudden it dropped to his
side. Her look ot appeal of abject
terror pierced the mists of his cloud-

explained It all I guess."

after her a moment a pathetic picture
of complote despair. Ho tottered to

Reynolds stopped briskly now to a

bent over It opening a concealed slide.
A bit of shining blue metal flashed In
his handB and ho turned Hie cylinder
quickly to make sure that It contained
Its deadly load. Ho moved to tho

slipped down tho remaining steps and
stepped softly across tho room. As

"You needn't I'll be right back."
He stepped forward but the report
er backed along In front ot him. As
they neared tho door Reynolds mado a
dash for It but Dick wan too quick tor
him. Ho stopped slightly asldo and
caught his friend from tho rear pin-
ioning both his arms behind him. They
struggled to and fro until Dick had
dragged him to the center of the floor.
"Lot mo go!" Roynolds ehouted.
"Damn you Meado I knew you'd do
that. Lot mo go will you! You don't
know what he's dono to mo or you'd

reached for Roynolds' hip pocket. He
socurcd the revolver but as ho loosed
one hand to do so Dob with a lurch
broko from his grasp and stood pant-
ing boforo htm.
"Olvo me that pistol!" ho ordered.
He got only a quiet emtio and a

"Then damn it. I'll do it with my

Jano staggered after him.
"Dob Bob dear! My boy! My hus-
band!" Bho called besoochlngly. The
tenderness of her tono the love note
in her volco arrested him for a mo-

friend had only accentuated his hys-

"Dob" sho cried softly "como back

Ho only looked and his eyos sudden-

tho broken Ico about his head and

doors away and In a few minutes hav-

helped to get her husband Into bed.
Tho doctor like all others assured
that there was no pressing peril pre-

down resignedly feeling of the Btrlck-

Thrca years ago I look charge ot a

containing a great many bowlders left
by a glacial drift. At one tlmo wheat
In this section gavo largo yields but
during tho dry seasons tho crop fell
down to six to twelve bushels the acre
which was scarcely worth fussing
with at harvest tlmo and stock waa
turnod Into many of tho fields. 1 be-
gan tho work ot tackling virgin prairie.
Tho neighbors thought I was crazy
becauso I plowed the pralrlo soil six
Inches deop and followed the plow
with a disk sovcral times; becauso
I harrowed tho small grain until It
wns six Inches high; becauso 1 har-
rowed tho corn every weok so lone
as posslblo and then plowed It each
week with a very small tooth cultiva-
tor Dut thoy wero surprised nt har-
vest tlmo becauso somo ot that land
gave a return of $32 tho acre writes
Clifford Willis In Denver Field and
Last year many ot the Holds In the
vicinity were prepared nnd plowed
better than they havo been for some
tlmo becauso the farmers saw more
buBhels as tho result and bushels
meant dollars. I also had to work on
somo heavy soil. A part of this land
was turned six Inches deep while
some waa plowed only four Inches.
In each case tho disk followed the plow
and would have been still better If I
had cross-disked bofore plowing as I
am now doing. Everything posslblo
was done to make a good firm seed
bed and also to prevent evaporation.
Many people In tho vicinity thought
It strango that wo would harrow our
small grain when it was six Inches
Whllo working In tho field stirring
tho soil although dry many of my
brother farmers woro not even In tho
Held Wo havo harvested moro and
better grain than many ot our neigh-
bors simply becaure wo kept at work.
On tho six-Inch breaking of adobe the
corn gavo a yield of thirty-eight bush-
els tho acre whllo four-Inch breaking
gavo a yield of less than thirteen
bushels. In cultivating our crops lu
tho dry area wo followed these threo
factors a deep seed bed a firm seed
bed and surface cultivation. In every
Instance wo diskod our ground Just
as soon as posslblo after harvest and
on tho corn ground' wo disked the
stalks In order to cut them up and
also to make a mulch.
I advlso early fall plowing if pos-
slblo and plow six to eight Inches In
dopth. Fall plowing will prevent tho
loss ot molsturo to a certain extent
and it tho soil breaks up cloddy let It
remain during tho winter without bar-
rowing. I have found by this method
that wo aro ablo to begin work much
earlier in tho spring than on latu
plowed ground. Wo should stir this
soil Just as early as possible so as lo
form a soil mulch to provent evapor-
ation. If unable to plow ir the fall.
I advise early spring plowing so that
tho capillary connection between the
plowed surface soil u:d the lower
strata may bo established before the
spring ralnB stop. 1 bellevo In deep
plowing but do not deepen the seed
bed all at onco. If you have boon
in th j habit ot plowing shallow only
go deeper from ono to two Inches each
season but always let .ho aim bo tot

sible. I havo no patience with the
dry settlers who uerely scratch the
surfaco and call It plowing.
