Suede and Steel.
A gray suede hag shaped like a
fleur-de-lis la most attractive In Its
unique cut. Its mounting Is steel, plain
in design, which does not Interfere
with the outlines of the bag, and the
beading differs from that usually seen,
in that it Is done with large lnstend of
I small beads.
They measure about an eighth of an
Inch in diameter and are of cut steel
They are used to bring out a pattern
on ibe bag and also to outline Its
edges, and at the same time to sew the
two sides of the bag together.

which no one has between October and
January, might Improve her gowns by

Abundance of Titanium.
It is rather surprising to consider
that only eight or nine elements are
more abundant than titanium. Chem
ists of the United States geological
survey find that it mokes up about
two-tifths of one per cent, of the
earth’s crust, and exceeds in quantity
all other heavy metals together, ex
cept iron. The proportion of iron is
about live per cent. The bulk of the
crust, tt will be remembered, is non
metallic, 50 per cent, beiug oxygen
and 25 per cent, silicon »

To Improve the Hair.
To keep the hair bright and glossy,
and encourage a strong and rapid
growth, few better methods exist than
that of ventilation.
The treatment should be practiced
for live minutes each day. The
tresses should be separated one by
one and shaken gently and slowly,
so that the air may penetrate between
the strands. If a maid’s help Is ob-
tainable, a still better result can be
secured, the attendant fanning the aii
gently onto the hair with the light
hand, while supporting one lock at a
time with the other. This must be
persisted In until the hair feels light
and the scalp cool and refreshed.
Besides proving excellent for the
hair, the treatment Is wonderfully
stimulating after severe brain work,
and has been much recommended In
nervous complaints, of which head-
ache and Insomnia form a part.
It shows an uncharitable spirit tr
speak ill of the man lower down and
an envious one will speak ill of the
man higher up.—Atchison Globe.

Largest Shipment of Steel.
What is believed to be the largest
single shipment of steel ever made
was a 1,500-ton order which was re-
cently tilled by the Bethlehem Steel
Works. Within 24 hours after the
receipt of the order this great inass
of structural shapes was loaded on
40 specially built pressed steel cars,
making a train one-third of a mile
long, hauled by two huge locomotives.
