KfNTUCKY IRISHI AMERICAN VOLUME VIIINO 21 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY MAY 241902 PRICE FIVE LENTS FROM THE EAST Splendid Showing Being Made by the Irish in the City of Worcester The Hibernians Number 3BOO and Own a Magnificent Building Jerry Bennett Says Philadel phia Leads the World For Divisions WHAT IS BEING DONE IN OHIO Most prominent among the delegates to the convention held here by the Bar tenders National Alliance were Irish Americans a number of whom are members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Before their departure from the city several were interviewed by the repre sentative of the Kentucky Irish American and the information gleaned from them was of a most gratifying nature One of the ablest men in the conven tion was Thomas D Mooney of Worces ter Mass and when our reporter broached him upon the subject of the Irish in the Eastern States he smilingly replied that it was one with which he was thoroughly familiar and always ready to talkuponWorcester is a city of 123000 popula tion and boasts nine divisions of the Ancient Order of Hibernians with a membership of something over 3500 This is really the strongest organization of Catholics in our city and the Eastern States All the divisions are in splendid financial condition and are progressing satisfactorily The members are public spirited and take an active interest in Worcesters advancement Not long ago the Hibernian building one of the most imposing business blocks in the city was completed It is four stories high built of granite and white brick and cost in the neighborhood of 50000 The ground floor is divided into stores and is occupied by several of our leading merchants On the second floor are many offices and lodge rooms and above this a large and commodious hall splendidly equipped and elegantly furuftsbdlfhsneaUnI capacity of be tween 1500 and 1800 This building speaks louder than words for the Hiber nians and many other cities would profit greatly by emulating the example set by their brethren in Worcester Asked as to how the funds were raised he replied Years ago a large lot was bought on one of the prominent streets This was paid for by the divisions and the movement to secure money with which to erect a creditable building inaugurated There was unity among the sons of the Emerald Isle and for five years a friendly rivalry existedamong the divisions Balls concerts socials receptions and excursions were given and the proceeds devoted to the building fund Michael McCarthy a wealthy liquor dealer rendered invaluable assist ance to the County Board Walter N Drohan Sergeant on the police force and for twenty years Treasurer of his divis ion was another indefatigable worker and both rejoice in the fruition of their labors County President John J Rogers guides the ship of the order with a steady hand He is bright and smart about thirtyfive years of age and has the sup port of the entire County Board Hard labor was necessary to succeed but as the work progressed it became a pleas ure Worcester will send a strong dele gation to Denver and have much valu able information to disseminate among the delegates Jerry Bennett from Philadelphia was another prominent figure in the conven tion as was also his colleague Charles Sweeney whose eloquent speech won for the Quaker City the next national con vention Delegate Bennett said Philadelphia leads every city in the world in Hibernianism having nearly a hundred divisions and 30000 members They exist in all parts of the city and are much encouraged by the clergy One of the most imposing parades seen dur ing the past year was one formed by a number of our divisions upon the occa sion of the laying of a corner stone of a church by Archbishop Ryan Nowhere does a better feeling exist and it is a frequent occurrence for one division to turn out in a body and visit another miles awayDut the best feature is the great charity dispensed The number of deserving persons who have been aided in sickness and distress and the moneys expended in relief work are almost beyond computation but these facts have won for the Ancient Order of Hibernians a standing not possessed by any other social fraternal society in Philadelphia Charles Sweeney said that the foregoing was but a faint picture of the Hibernians of his city They are now arranging for their trip to Denver and will appear with the largest delegation Jerry Bennett will be among tits delegates Both were elated oyer their vic tory in securing the next convention They received many congratulatory mes sages among the number one from Brew OCallafaan official printers for the Ancient Order of Hibernian as fob lows Hurrah for the Harps from the tewnof tke Quaker Ileas till ye JIarry J Clancy of Yousgrtewn Ohio U p o r said the order had flourished there for thirty years and now boasted four strong divisions Already the initial steps had been taken and before long it was expected that the erection of a splendid building of their own would be begun He paid a high compliment to State President Hogan and County President Daniel McCarthy of Sandusky both of whom have worked wonders for the order in Ohio As an instance of what Youngstown Hibernians are doing Mr i Clnncy stated that St Patricks day President Hogan officiated at the initla tion of 125 members Many clergymen were present from the surrounding towns dnd a great banquet followed in the evening Now it is the order to confer the degreeson classes of fifty at a timeT F Bolaud of Scranton M F Con nolly of Springfield Mass Thomas Fitzpatrick of Albany and William

delivered by exState President Martin Cusick who urged that members propose for member ship the names of men only who will make faithful and true members County President Keeuan expressed his pleasure at the growth of the divis ions and predicted that the membership would soon be doubled Michael Shee- han the Portland avenue grocer spoke of how he was reminded of past days and hoped the Irish were on a higher plane and better united in friendship and charity David OConnell told of the thousands of dollars paid Into Division land the good use made of the moneys He agreed with the speaker who precceded him that among the Hibernians would be found the Irishman possessed of noble traits of character though he regretted to acknowledge they are not united in many things that are essential to their further advancement The start made this year was very encouraging and he hoped it would bring Irishmen heart to heartrhonest and honorable with each other and the heart always right Attorney Tom Walsh was the last speaker and was loudly applauded for his eloquent and timely remarks He declared he felt himself more at home among Hibernians than anywhere else Most of his address was devoted to the relations of the order and the church and was a beautiful tribute to the stead fast faith of the members Sylvester Doyle and others gave vocal selections after which an abundance of refresh ments

fine proportions being 115x165 feet The members of Mackin Council are all hus tling young men and no opportunity is let pass to accomplish their purpose to provide the citizens of that section of Louisville with a club house and hall equal in size and convenience to any in the city Last year and the year before they gave outings for this purpose which were thoroughly enjoyed by their thou

street the Louisville Federation of Catholic Societies will complete its organization by the election of officers The objects of the federation have been frequently stated in these columns but it may note amiss to again say that politics will have no chance whateyer in the body Ever since the national con vention at Cincinnati the movement has been in good hands but it was deemed best not to take decided action until the meeting next week when nearly all the local Catholic societies will be repre sented by delegates Attention will soon be turned to other counties and when a sufficient number have been organized a call for a State convention will be issued and a State Federation perfected Dr J W Fowler Edward J McDermott John J Crotty Emmet Slattery Eugene Cooney and others equally prominent are much in terested in the movement and to them is due the credit for its success The election was deferred in order that there might be a general distribution of the offices and klr

Hibernians by Hoosier Division The Four Degrees Conferred on Class of Eight Young Irishmen- Exemplification of Ritual by Kentucky Team aud Guard of Honor DIVISION 1t MAKIMG RAPID STRIDES Despite the rainstorms and inclement weather of Tuesday last the Hibernian degree team and Guard of Honor of this city turned out in full numbers in re sponse to the invitation of the officers and members of Division 1 of Jefferson ville to visit them that night and assist in the conferring of the degrees upon a class of eight candidates A special car conveyed the visitors who were headed by County President Tom Keenan State Secretary James Coleman and Patrician Pat Sullivan and Joe Taylor When they reached Jeffersonville they were met by members of the order and es corted to Hibernian Han where they received a royal welcome from President Gleason Raymond Stanton Jack Murphy John A Kennedy Treasurer Kenney William Coyle Martin Fogarty Secretary Devitt and Lawrence Ford The beautiful hall was thronged with members of Division 1 which now ranks among the strongest and most progressive in Indiana All were anxious to witness the impressive initiatory cere monies exemplified as laid down in the new ritual and it goes without saying they were highly pleased with the work of their Louisville brethren President Gleason was in the chair and no time was lost in disposing of the routine business and the allowance of sick claims The question of a picnic in the near future was brought forward but action was deferred till the next meeting Reports submitted showed the division in a flourishing condition with 123 members In good standing The statement was made that this number will soon reach 160 as the present ad ministration wants to make a better showing than any that has preceded it and judged by the work of the past few months they are sure to succeed When Grand Guide Keenan announced all in readiness for the initiatory cere monies the candidates were assembled and escorted into the presence of Patri cian Pat Sullivan Oracle David OCon nell Bard Will Meehan and Scribe James Barry by the Guard of Honor Messrs Thomas F Callahan Willliam Hennessy Thomas Sullivan Joe Hanra han Harry Smith John Kenefick Sr Thomas Dolan Sylvester Doyle and Maurice Healey Director Tracey and the choir conducted the musical exer cises in a most creditable manner every one present assisting in two numbers More impressive than ever before was Patrician Sullivan in his charge and the lessons given by Oracle OConnell and Bard Meehan will never be forgotten Surrounded by the gleaming pikes and glaring torches they listened to Irelands story portrayed in feeling and patriotic words and the admonition to be true to God and their country had its effect upon all present The class of candidates was a most rep resentative one the members thereof being Messrs Lawrence Hines Dennis Constantine George J Heuser Jr John Weber Thomas F OHearn Morris Kennedy John Kennedy John W Mul len James Marra Thomas E Carroll James McIntyre William Burke and John Loyd The four degrees having been conferred Lawrence Hines and others expressed their joy at having been admitted to so noble a society Others spoke and urged the young men to con tinue the good work and keep Division 1 of Jeffersonyill in proud position in the Ancient Order of Hibernians President Will Meehan had the an

President Gleaaon requested the visitors awl members to Twattlu and par AU ll t take of the hospitality of their Jeff brethren An elegant luncheon and light refreshments and cigars in abun dance awaited the gatheringin the ad joining hall and the crowd that surrounded the bounteously laden tables did ample justice to the feast spread thereon William Coyle Jack Murphy Martin Poverty John A Kennedy President Gleason Treasurer Kenney Secretaries Hogan and Devitt and others were stationedJn such manner that none could get away without joining in the festivities which were enlivened by songs by Sylvester Doyle and others impromptu talks and short stories which brought to a close another recordmaking day in the history of Hibernianism in JeffersonvilleIn of William Constan tine the city of Jeffersonville loses another of its popular and hustling young men For the past four years he was employed by the city but when the Republicans came into power he resigned his position and on Thursday he left for Chicago having secured a good place with the Western Union Telegraph Company Ills Hoosier friends wish him unbounded success His made the third traveling card issued this month BISHOP FARLEY Declined to Speak of Suc cessor to Archbishop Corrigan The Right Rev John M Farley Auxiliary Bishop of New York and prominently mentioned as the successor to Archbishop Corrigan got home last Saturday on the St Louis The elabor ate reception planned for him was abandoned on account of the Arch bishops death and only Vicar General Mooney and the Bishops Secretary Father Hayes and a committee consist ing of the pastors of several of the prominent Catholic churches of New York met him at quarantine At the pier there were delegations from the Catholic Club the Knights of Columbus Catholic Benevolent Legion and a number of Catholic clergymen of the city Bishop Farley appeared to be in splendid health and said that he felt so Of Archbishop Corrigans death he said Fathers Cassidy and McKenna and I were visiting the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes on May 4 when the Bishop of the district sent me word by his Secretary that Archbishop Corrigan was dead He had his information from a Paris news paper I could not believe it and cabled at once to Vicar General Mooney who confirmed the report I went to Paris immediately indescribably shocked and there found two letters for me from the Archbishop The last was dated April 1C In it he said that he was lying helpless in bed as he had been for several weeks and he admonished me to secure all the rest I could as there would be plenty of work for me to do the latter part of May and the first of June I can only say that no one can estimate the loss sustained by the diocese in the death of Archbishop Corrigan He was a man of the gentlest simplest character and of the greatest nobleness His death came to me as a great shock and quite over whelmed me with grief Regarding Archbishop Corrigans suc cessor Bishop Farley said It seems to me altogether too soon to discuss the question It seems not quite proper for me to say anything about the matter I have no idea who is to be selected Bishop Farley outlined in brief his continental trip which he said had been a happy and pleasant one until the news of the Archbishops death was received lIe was in Rome during jubilee week and had an audience with the Pope He arrived in Jerusalem in time to blessthc Palms on Palm Sunday at the request of the Patriach in the Church of the Holy Sepulcirc The Bishop aud his companions made the journey to Naza reth on horseback sleeping by night in the tents carried by their attendants The Valley of the Jordan was visited and a journey was made into Egypt- It is expected that the call for the meeting of the irremovable rectors and Bishops of the prlvince will be issued today RESULT OF UNITY Report of Irish League of Groat Britain Very Interesting The reviving and reinvigorating results of unity are splendidly apparent in the annual report of the Executive of the United Irish League of Great Britain to the convention at Manchester on the 17th inst The growth of the organization and the subscriptions to the various national funds have been beyond all precedent in the year that has just closed The development In power and enthusi asm which has followed the suppression of dissension has been at least as manifest in Great Britain as in Ireland and as in America though in Great Britain dis sension never got its grip on the national organization The result is eminently encouraging to all except the English politicians who bold their seats by grace of the Irish vote and who have recanted the pledges in favor of home rule ou which they secured their election Having cleaned their slates on the advice of Lord Rosebery they will be themselves wiped out The facts and figures of the report are particularly interesting to the sanguine Liberal imperialists who hopeto capture in Great Britain alone the couple of hundred seats needed for their working Majority independent of the Irish party COMPLETED Details for Catholic Knitliti r Jubilee Entertainment nt Mncrtiiloys Well Known Ladles and

ostracise and exclude foreigners from this coun try have never regarded Englishmen as foreigners This seems strange but is easily explained These organizations are and have r always been of English origin offshoots of Orangeism The KnowNothings of fifty years ago sprang from Orangeism the Junior Order of American Mechanics of today came from KnowNothing ism the A P A was started by Canadian Orangemen As an Orangemans loyalty is tested by his contempt for foreigners and hatred of the Pope both regarded by him as enemies of England so the Orange disciples in this country condemn and oppose foreigners and Catholics as enemies of our Govern ment Of course they overlook the fact that our Government is the fruition of protest and resistance against the very English intoler ance which they emulate and strive to enforce that the funda mental principles of our free institutions they are so solicitous about are in direct conflict with the English idea Their patriotic prin ciples do not prove them Americans but entitles them to be loyal subjects of King Edward VII and indicates at this late day there is still a Tory element who maintain that the American Revolution was a mistakeand of course they do not regard an Englishman as a foreigner v LABOR AND POLITICS Labor and politics will not mix and every attempt to do so has resulted in failure and disaster to labor Fortunately for labor the1 American sentiment is opposed to class distinction class legislation class issues class supremacy for the inevitable result would be the degradation and oppression of labor as attested in all times and countries where government is based on class even though labor may for a brief period have con trolled In this country the law recognizes no class but all are simply citizens Everything in this country has its beginning by agitation among the people the formation of a party to urge it and if sustained by popular approval finally becomes a part of our law or system of government Thus the agitation for a Labor party is the beginning of a move for anew factor in politics favoring the special interests of labor for legis lation and control of government in its behalf as a class distinct from all others of our people That is the proposition plainly stated Certainly workingmen have the same right as other citizens to make their special interests a political issue and form a party to advocate them and seek legislation and con trol of government There may be a difference of opinion as to its wisdom but there can be no valid objection thereto But the present move like its predecessors con templates making and using the labor unions as a nucleus for the labor political party That is different and decidedly objection able Labor unions are not politic organizations but strictly non political as they should be and as experience has fully demonstrated they must be or fail in their purr pose to elevate and protect labor the result being dissension con tention dissolution and labor disorganized and helpless loses all it has gained and is doomed to suffer for a period till the animosities of political factious die out and tthere u CJ can be reorganization and a strug gle of years and suffering to regain what was lost before any progress can be made The fate of the Farmers Grange the Miners Union the Knights of Labor and numerous local instances fully sus tain this The lessons of experi ence are generally learned in the sorrow and humiliation of defeat and it is not wise to forget them and indulge in the same folly The labor unions are business organizations for the purpose of protecting and improving the inter ests of workingmen regardless of politics Like all business concerns or individuals that neglect or sacri fice business for politics they can only expect as has been the experience of the past the same disastrous results Labor organiza tions occasionally are forced to take political action strictly speaking to protect or further their interests in local State or national affairs but this is not party politics It is simply the exercise of their right as citizens to appeal or protest in their own behalf to the governing power or the people While they have not been generally successful they have accomplished much in the past few years and where they fail it is due to their political partisanism that leads them to support their enemy because he is the nominee and oppose their friend because he is not the nominee of their preferred political party They lack that in dependence which holding labor first supports labors friend and opposes labors enemy no matter what ticket he is on In States where the workingmen have shown such nonpartisan independence they obtain what they want from either and both political parties in States where they blindly follow party regardless of labors interests they are played as shuttlecocks by politicians of all parties and get only promises at election time This is the fault not of the labor unions but of the individual work ingman who must become more devoted to his own interests and less to partisan politics But is not this an argument in favor of the labor unions forming an independent political party Just the reverse The partisan members would not vote the labor ticket but still support the party nominee But the members independent enough to vote for labors interests irrespective of party would do so throwaway their votes and with out accomplishing anything for labor remove the independent labor vote so much dreaded by politicians as a factor in elections It is the independent vote that counts and changes results of elections and policies of government While it is true that labor candi dates have been elected in local campaigns no benefit has ever re sulted to labor A few individuals have obtained office which too often turned their heads so they forgot all about labor ever after ward usually becoming rank parti sans of any party that kept them in office but the labor unions that won such political victories generally paid the forfeit and labor suf fered to a greater or lesser degree These are the facts boiled down denuded of bombast and rainbows While those who advocate a labor party have the privilege to go ahead let them do so as citizens on their own responsibility in the usual way and not attempt to use the labor unions as the cornerstone Partisan politics must be kept out of labor unions and labor unions kept free from partisan politics They are organized on no political basis for no political purpose nor D J must polities be added to their cb ject and obligation and test of memo ship They are composed of work ingmen on the qualification of competency and character for the sole purpose of protecting and betteripg the condition of workingmen re gardless ofpolitics They are strictly nonpolitical and they must be maintained so that they may retain their membership and carry out the purpose of their existence which 5 is the individual and general welfare of labor independent ofand above politics partisanism and politicians If there is to be a labor party let it be organized and managed as such The labor unions must not be made political clubs in the inter est of any political party or candi Hates whatever their title or plat form may be Keep politics and the politicians out of labor unions Some of our AngloAmerican newspapers comment unfavorably on the tardiness of France in send ing relief to her stricken colony of Martinique and leaving the burden to the United States The French Government which only learned of the disaster via the United Stales owing to the destruction of the Martinique end of the French cable promptly provided and arranged to send relief which has also been liberally contributed throughout France The tardiness is due to storms on the French coast prevent ing the vessels leaving port for Martinique These same papers however have not a word to say of the failure if not refusal of the British Government to aid her stricken colony of St Vincent Mr Dillon called the attention of Par liament to the disaster but it was dismissed with Minister Balfours remark that he had never heard of Parliament taking any action in such matters So far as England is concerned nothing has been done by her Government or people to re lieve St Vincents destitutebut- aid has reached them from the United States and the adjacent islands England may have her faults but charity is not one of them The ordinance prohibiting blow ing of horns and noise on the streets aimed at the street peddlers is altogether too stringent While some of the peddlers are a noisy nuisance the majority are not It is true they make a noise to at tract patrons but folks too nervous for noise ought to move to the country The peddlers are striving to earn a living pay a license to ply their calling are a conveni ence to the public and are en titled to protection and encourage ment The ordinance is too sweep ing and should be amended so as to restrain the peddlers within bounds of order without hampering them in the business of serving the people and earning a livelihood If it slips through the Council in its

against the desecration of our freerAmerican soil with a monument tto any foreign potentate The lessons taught in Our DumbJO Animals printed iin Boston are for the old ns well as the young Few children can read it without becoming more kind to all about them and having principles instilled that will bring them added joy and hap piness until they die George T Angell the publisher is indeed a humanitarian as well as Christian The grand jury failed to return indictments against the Sunday theaters after ordering them drawn up ABOUT TEMPER There are three reasons why one ought to control his temper and the first iIs selfrespect When one loses command of himself and throws the reins upon the neck of passion he may have for the moment a certain enjoyment in the license but there must surely come a reaction of Regret When he is calm again and the fit has passed away every serious person must be ashamed of wha he said and what he did of the manse in which he gave himself away and the exhibition he made of himself He will recall the amazement on the faces of his friends and the silence which they adopted as a protective measure and the soothing language which they used as iiif they were speaking with a babyand thi glances which passed between them lie will not soon hold again with them as strong as he did before this outburst nor will he have the same claim upon their confidence as a sound and clearheaded man He has acted like a fretful peevish child and has for the time forfeited his title to manhood and the plac of a man POSING Why do some of our sweet modest girls throw off their own innate reserve and to put it mildly show offll in pub lic places You seeit everywhere The little conscious gestures the general air of being on parade and worst of all the talking for the benefit of outsiders It is in such poor taste to retail any private business ina public conveyance yet ii- is it a weakness especially indulged in by the younger members of the fair sex who seem to think their affairs intensely interesting to strangers It may be a great satisfaction to Miss Giddy to have a new party grown yet it is to be ques tioned whether the man opposite with the amused smile on his face takes the same lively interest in her wardrobe If our girls would only realize that refined manners weigh at all times against any thing havirjg a tendency toward the ostentatious vulgar they would lower their voices weir plain clothes in the street and at no time be led into trouble through a desire to show off II CULTIVATE CHEERFULNESS I Cultivate cheerfulness in disposition and conversation Neither God nor the world can do much for a grumbler or a gloomy and discontented soul Any person who sees the whole world going wrong is doubtless looking out from a perverted medium or gazing at some counterfeit Look not into a muddy pool to see the sun when in all his I glory he shines in the sky Think pleasant thoughts speak cheerfulwords look on the bright side of things The darkest cloud has a silver lining Night brings out the stars II God and the universe want to make you happy The tongue is an unruly member most difficult to tame Think before you speak A little word perhaps thoughtlessly spoken has sometimes pierced a heart to its center and left a lasting sting We can properly call no word small nothing is small whose influence is to last forever We should scrupulously guard against wounding the feelings of othersHOW BE HAPPY 0 It is envy and ambition that makes us miserable We often discover that we want things by seeing the abundance of others It fa comparison that kindles the fire so that in outward possessions we should look to those beneath us but for our mental attainments let us ever strive for the highest and noblest A thing long expected and earnestly de sired when possessed does not always bring the happiness anticipated Do we not get the greatest good when we make another happy We need to love and be loved in order to be happy Let us do what we can for our friends We can speak of what is pleasant rather than disagreeable We can be in sympathy with their feelings being thoughtful and considerate There are many lonely people about us who need our aid Encour age them to open their hearts to us and talk over their troubles They will feel the better for paving disclosed them WHAT EVERY WIFE NEEDS She needs a good temper a cheerful disposition and a knowledge of how her husband should be treated She needs a capability of looking on the bright side of life and refusing to be worried by small things She needs a secure grasp of such subjects as are of interest to men and should not be above studying even politics in order to understand should her husband speak of them She needs a sympathetic nature in order that should sorrow fall upon them she may be able to give comfort to her husband SheI needs to undeetand something of sick nursing A Wife with no notion of what to do in ca4 of illness is but a useless thing She considerable tact and patience Th one to enable her to know versaandhis temper is ruffled i I CHILDHOODS PRAYER The fire upon the hearth is low And there is stillness everywhere Like troubled spirits here and there The firelight shadows fluttering go And as the shadows round me creep A childish treble breaks the gloom Andsoftly from a farther room Comes Now I lay me down to sleep Andsomehow with that little prayer And that sweet treble in my ears My thought goes back to distant years And lingers with a dear one there And as I hear the childs amen My mothers faith comes back to me Crouched at her side I seem to be And mother holds my hands again O for an hour in that dear place 6 for the peace of that dear time I 0 for that childish trust sublime O for a glimpse of mothers face Yet as the shadows round me creep I do not seem to be alone Magic of that treble tone And now I lay me down to sleep Eugene Field 69SSS969S96SS9S959S9SS6SS I II S0GIETviSesssssssesssssssesesssesS

build bridges They imagine misfortune and run out to meet it Women are not jolly enough They make too serious a business of life and laughat its little humors too seldom Men can stop in the midst of perplexities and have a hearty laugh And iit keeps them young Women can not and that is one reason why they fade earlythere- are other reasons but we will pass then now Worry not only wrinkles the face but it wrinkles and withers the mind Have a hearty laugh once in a while it is a good antiseptic and will purify the mental atmosphere drive away evil imaginings JiadJempers and other ills PLEASURES OF LIFE The greater the pleasure we find iuI anything in life the keener the pain when it slips from us Sometimee we are permitted some great joy for a season longer than that which has come to other lives and when it is removed we are exhorted to submission because we had it with us so long Yet that very fact made it infinitely harder to yield it up and take up our broken lives without it Naught but mejnory in its stead yet we cling to that memory even though it racks our hearts with pain WATCH FOR TOM SCALLY Ton Scallys friends in the police de partment made manifest their

sash is conspicuously in evidence Sashes of pompadour colorings are espe cially chic for the plain muslins Lace ends plaitings of lace and loops ofribbon with ends finish many a hat at the back drooping well over the hair The widebrimmed hat drooping in front and at the back with loops and ends for a finish will be worn in midsum mer with the muslin gowns Muslins which are to be worn so much this summer are especially the young girls material and the flat broadbrimmed hat helps to carry out the quaint pictur esque effect of a simple flowered imtsline gown The whole outline of the latest summer fashions is drooping Valenciennes lace is not quite so popu lar for trimming muslin gowns as it was last season yet it is used to some extent The richerlooking laces are more desir able this season and a great deal of Bruges Irish Flemish and imitation point dAlencon are employed Rarely if ever in the history of milli nery has the flower and foliage hat flour- Ished so conspicuously as

drawn work done by hand is very dainty wrought in some design In the full part of the blouse below the yoke which may be simply tucked Hand embroidery in what is called the blind stitch is the modish decoration for linen waists but not every one can afford this Unquestionably the material of the summer is veiling in all its varying grades of thinness with every other mem ber of the sheer family
