PINCHOT Chief of Forestry Department United States Dept of Agriculture I Leaf Save Waste Our- Resgtirces I rByThe conservation of natural resources often been taken to mean simply the prevention of waste It does mean the saving of those resources which we are now eng ged in using but this definition is too narrow The conservation of in cludes both the prevention of destruction and the prevention of waste from nonuse Conservation means development not less than saving There are two forms of waste One is such takes place in the destruction of our forests or the waste of our soil from washing There is no better example of this form of waste than the inbthe last few months have caused the loss of tens of millions of dollars in property and many human lives Another illustration is found in the enormous loss of fertility which the farmer suffers by the washing of oil from his best fields into the water courses to pollute their currents clog their channels and entail large expense for its removal The other form of waste is far less spectacular but no less real When we allow the tens of millions of potenthorsepower in our streams tp go to waste for lack of use we are breaking the law of conservation almost as fully as if the streams themselves were destroyed When we ullbw the water power to flow unused we draw unnecessarily and waste fully upon our stores of coal and fuel oils to replace the power wevaste bynonuse When we fail to use the rivers for navigation we make huge and unnecessary drafts on our supply of iron and coal It is estimated that to transport freight by water requires less than onehalf as much coal and iron as to transport it by rail Unnecessary use is waste When our coal and iron are gone hey will be gone forever Water power will last as long as the sun gives us rain t Let TIS fbit firmly in our minds that conservation means development as much as it means prevention of waste Conservation is the corn non sense use of all the resources of this great country of ours fortlie best good of all the people for the longest time and it demands develop went justas i insistently as it demands the preservation of our resources aid their efficient and economical use Lesson of the- Faded By REV W C BITTING Detroit rGreatMen Remain Obscurer MAY f the Develop has resources as Many a poet has written of autumn leaves They tell most persons a true but melancholy story of how life b udded was green flourished for a summer thin ri turned brown fell and the sport of winter winds Biitr that is not the tale with the one who makes awonder slful prayer of which our text isa part He speaks of an inner self that has gone throughmoral experiences not physical We are all as one that is unclean and all our righteousnesses are as a polluted garment and we all do fade as a leaf and our iniquities like the wind take us away And shallwe be saved This man is kin to us all We share his con fession for who is there of us that in serious moments has not said the Lame thing The truest patriot is agood citizen Every person in our land who tramples justice in dealing with another who righteousness in civil or commercial realms who is a mere idler in luxuIWwhose occupation is degrading to himself or others is turning our leaf from green to brown The shiftless poor and the idle rich the an archist who wants no law at aUand the equally bad anarchist who k thinks to buy exemption from obedience to law the bribe givers and takers the criminals of bottom mid flle and top of our social order all help to tear from our foliage the leaves that are for the healing of na tions Every institution that harms our national life must go if our glory is to stay But there can be no fading nation unless there are faded men and women There is no such a thing

macadam roads when it became a question of seeing the fine system of roads in Con necticut which he Is building disinte j LAYING COAL TAB AD PITCH ON A ROAD grate before his eyes unless he could find a protection for them There were two things to be done find a road sur facing material which is finished when laid and solid so that it makes no dust and needs no dust to maIntain its in tegrity or find a method of laying the dust Some roadmakers have not given over trying to find the latter yet but Lifter various and varied experiments Commissioner Macdonald finds that a mere dust layer which means oil is of little value It must be frequently re newed and cannot be repaired Commissioner Macdonalds specifica lion lays great stress on the necessity for having all parts of the road per

stone is entirely bare clean and free from all material except such as is found in the No2 course so that there is no interruption between the tar and the No 2 course of stone This No 2 course is to be evened up to grade also Then comes the coal tar application About 15 per cent of pitch is to be melted Into the tar and thoroughly mixed with Jt the whole to be heated toa temperature of 225

Lincoln Neb Nov In a statement Issued from Fairview William J Bryan admits that the election has gone against the Democrats but says that in the absence of complete re turns it is impossible to say what causes contributed most to the Republican victory He says that the Democrats made their fight upon a platform which embodied what they thought would be best for the American people but that it is for the peo pie to decide what laws they desire and what methods of government they desire However he is con fident that In time the masses will Democraticviewsgovernmental reform He has words of praise for Chair man Mick and the national commit tee and says he does not see that they could have done more than they did He also expresses his gratitude to the millions of Democrats who have stood by him during the past 12 years and says he will serve the interests of the people as willingly and faithfully in a private capacity as In a public one He is glad that with a Democratic administration in Nebraska his party can put into practice the principles of the Denver platform that relate to state legislation STANDARD CONCERN FIXES OIL PRICES According to Testimony ct Ohio Operator New York

country since 1887 At the beginning the witness said Lima oil was used for fuel only selling in 1886 and 1888 around 15 and 17 cents a barrel When the Standard commenced refining in 1889 declared Mr Case prices teadily advanced until now it is selling around 1 a barrel In crossexamination Mrs Kellogg brought out that oil sold for 6 cents more a gallon in the North Lima than elsewhere Mr Case admitted that the Joseph Sepp company a Standard concern fixed the price of crude oil for the Lima field He told of the purchase by one of his com panies of the Palmer Oil company for 300000 which they held for over a year and then sold for 450000 The witness asserted that the Manhattan Oil company supposed for years to be an independent company was now known to be a Standard concern To the

Which Is the Business Hen An experienced closely observing poultry raiser knows at a glance the laying hen The small feminine neck and head count the bright alert eye tells a tale the drooping tail tells an other tale and when she picks her feet lip and jumps them down we have another pointer How manage the hens There are several ways The trap nest is a prac tical thing and would be especially valuable to the small breeder or to any poultryman or poultrywoman who had the time or would take the time to properly manage the traps Most people know the meaning of trap nests but for the few that might not know I will mention that they are a nest in a box that confines the hen until the owner releases her hence it is known what hen laid the egg And there are other ways to improve the flock A close observance and constancy with them enables us to know by sight what hens lay every day and those that lay every other day or do not lay at all We must never lose sight of the fact tJ1at the cock erels are half the flock in breeding value Many of the same rules that apply to the race horse the cow or the hen also apply to cockerels The small neck and head the alert eye and activ ity are all pointers In the right direc tionI am one of those who believe the 200egg hen will never be excelled to any great extent But I do believe that any ordinary flock can be im proved to a point where the 200mark would fit where the 150mark now fits If the time ever comes that egg records will be a part of score cards then the work of improvement will be on PRACTICAL POULTRY HOUSE One That Will

Magazine A CHINESE STORY The Way a Mandarins Wise Wife De cided a Baby Case Two women came before a mandarin in China each of them protesting that she was the mother of a little child they had brought with them They were so eager and so positive that the mandarin was sorely puzzled He retired to consult with his wife who was a wise and clever woman whose opinion was held in great repute In the neighborhood She requested five minutes in vhlch to deliberate At the end of that time she spoke Let the servants catch me a large fish in the river and let it be brought here alive This was done Bring me now the Infant she said but leave the two women in the outer chamber This was done too Then the mandarins wife caused the baby to be undressed f2shCarrythrow it into the river in the sight of the two women The servant obeyed her orders flinging the fish into the water where it rolled about and strug gled disgusted no doubt by the wrap swaddledWithoutwomen threw herself into the river with a shriek She must save her drowning child Without doubt she is the true mother she declared and the mandarins wife commanded that she should be rescued and the child given ito her And the mandarin nod

no plan could possibly be the best for every feeder It includes several ideas which could be incorpor ated into almost any plan of a pig geryA frequently neglected feature in building piggeries is the providing of convenient passages for cleaning of Piggery r bedding and moving pigs from pen to pen A study of this floor plan will show that this important feature is not neglected The building may of course be of any length to accommodate from 20 to 100 pigs or more Two rows of pens flank the passage one on either side Doors two feet wide open off the passage into each pen The feed ing is done from the passage The pens are 10 feet front and 12 feet deep being large enough for four to eight animals according to size In the plan FL FL FL are feeding floors 6x10 L L L are low partitions separating the beds from feeding floors D D D large swinging doors or rather partitions 6 feet long and 4 feet high serve as partitions between SCIENTIFIC FEEDING OF SWINE Feeding hogs is a subject in which every farmer and breeder is or should be deeply interested It is of univer sal importance and I only wish I could go into it deeply and in a way that would interest you men hereStarting with the newborn pig it requires practice and skill to feed the mother so that she will bring her litter out without scouring them When this is done the first great danger is over To do this she should be fed lightly and systematically The same man should feed and care for her that fed her previous to farrowing pie should have his work well planned and good judgment should direct his move ments Many writers advocate the use of a strictly milkproducing ra tion but experience has shown that this is wrong The flow of milk at this time is naturally greater than the pigs will take in the majority of cases For this reason a light feed of corn and oats is better for the sow and pigs both In the course of a week the ration should be gradually changed to a slop of shorts and this increased until the ration consists of onehalf of such feeds At the age of three weeks the pigs will commence eating and they should creepIThe feed should consist of a slop of some good mill feeds From the time the pigs commence eating the expense of feeding gradually increases and with It the value of the pig increases if he is doing well and Is properly fed It is not my purpose to propound the balanced ration fact or theory However the purpose or final end of the feeding operation is to produce a hog with strong bony framework and a development of mus cle of such an extent that all the vital organs such as the lungs heart di gestive and reproducive organs will hogIsor as I would rather call it the sys tematic way of feeding must come into The accompanying illustration of a poultry house is largely

the development will not be so complete as It otherwise would Any of the following feeds may be used Wheat wheat sorts packingclover pastures The ration should consist for the most part of one of a combination of these feeds Every man has an idea of what combination he thinks best The feeding of correctives tonics and worm powders is at present ad vocated by a great many men and it is all right but these are found on all farms with the exception of the worm exterminator in the form of corn cob charcoal and grass As a worm exterminator I have found five grains of santonin and three grains of calomel to each 80 pounds of hog to be the cheapest and most ef fective However considerable care is needed to feed such a powder as only ten head shouldbe treated at a time and the powder thoroughly mixed through the slop No feeder be he ever so careful and patient can be successful in his opera ations if the conditions surrounding his hogs are not sanitary and clean Slacked lime and coal tar dip and crude oil should be used freely but not extravagantly by every hog man Lime and dip pre good disinfectants and will keep own disease while the crude oil is t cheapest and most ef fective louse

prisoner in the Tombs until Monday as Judge Hoqgh has refused to admit the financier to bail The Morse lawyers applied to the United States circuit court of appeals for a writ to show cause why their client shoud not be admitted to bail and the writ was granted but it is not returnable until Monday hence it appears that Morse must remain a prisoner until the question of bail is settled on that dayIWhether a hew trial will be grant ed Morse is problematical Judge La combe granted a writ of error to the Morse lawyers This writ is returtir able Dec 8 and is based upon tbe usua

tone or business shows most marked im provement Many industrial concerns have an nounced increase of capacity and of running time and sales of pig iron structural material wton goods for spring and reorders for fall and spring wear woolens shoes and other lines have been enlarged Practically all pig iron markets were animated this week and the volume of business placed was heavy Most ot the tonnage was booked prior to the elec tion the result of which appeared to be well assured and some of it was probably brought out by concessions in prices However quotations are now firmer and

dictated a statement in which he denied specifically that Tammany Hall did not support Bryan It is silly to accuse Tammany Hall of knifing the national Democratic ticket taking all the circumstances into considera tinn said Mr Murphy Many per sons who are making the charge know better but hope to make polit ical capital at Tammanys expense There is plenty of proof that Tam many was absolutely loyal The fact that the Democratic candidates on the county ticket received far less than the normal Democratic majority is proof enough in itself that Tam many was not In an way responsible for the Bryan slump The county ticket suffered because of Bryans weakness I notice that Ohio In diana and Minnesota elected Democratic governors but Bryan lost them and I have not heard any charges of treachery to Bryan there There was no treachery The whole result was due only to Bryans weak ness and the strength of Taft which pulled Hughes through Latest From Missouri St Louis Nov 7The latest

to college room com forts and luxuries for the next ten months Of all these little home comforts packed in trunks and sent on later in boxes none is quite so important as the college cushion for of course every dormitory room and every cottage room has its window seat or couch on which heaps of cushions testify to the occupants popularity with the fair sex The college cushion has been rather done to death in some ways and pennants striking combinations of college colors and emblems are rather too commonplace to feuit the progressive college boy and girl so they look for some thing novel and preeminently serviceable Satins velours brocades and silks are lovely to own but they are not just the materials best suited to the average college quar ters tFrom these elaborate cushions the thoroughly practical college mind turns with relief to the useful and solidly comfortable cushion made of dark linen dull shaded crash or some cotton fabric that is warranted to survive a series of pillow battles and be none the worse for wear One of the most attractive of these is a plain large square cush ion covered with dull rose colored linen and embroidered with a conventionalized tulip design in shades of rose Rather coarse mercerized floss was used for this and the shndincrs were beautiful The tulip happened to be the assmflower in this instance and rose the class color Around the edge of the cushion was a band of rose colored fishnet crocheted in a twoinch strip and with the two outer edges sewed together so that it formed a crocheted rope The rope was attached straight and the joining instead of coming at one corner was made at a side near the corner and Jhe crocheted net was tied in a knot fastened securely to the cushion and the ends finished with a rose colored fishnet ball Where the college colors are preferred in the cushion combination this effect could be accomplished by having the cushion covers made of say blue linen and the cord of golden yellow fish twine or the cushion tops might be crimson and the edge matching Any two colors that are distinctive of the college could be combined in this way and the embroidered decoration may combine the two or it may be confined to the contrasting color matching the twine finish using different shades of it Gross stitch designs worked in a solid color on coarse Russian linen crash make very durable and attractive cushions Sometimes blue linen is worked in yellow yellow with white orange with black and so on to carryout the college color scheme It is always nice to have at least one cushion showing the college pen nant for a decoration and this one may be handsomer than the others and can be used if it stands the wear and tear of a college life after graduation This one is generally the gift of ones best friend at home and a good deal of time is devoted to its construction NEW STOCK AND SLEEVE FRILLS r Those That Are HandPlaited Are the Hall Mark of Elegance The latest fancy is to have the stock and the plaited frills that finish the sleeves of some fine soft white material lightly edged with a line of hem stitching And to be correct the plaits must be done by hand These hand plaited frills are the hall mark of extreme elegance At coup ry house gatherings there is much dancing for here the young girls of the family make their initiatory bow before the serious presentation to their set In town Sweetly charming are some gowns prepared fpr these little dances at a great chateau near Paris Over a sheath of soft white liberty satin hangs a scant short skirt of white India muslin the edge is shaped into deep teeth followed by many tiny frills of scantily frilled Valenciennes lace forming a border quite six inches in depthlike moss The slightly low cut corsage is trim med in the same manner the mossy effect continuing around the shoul ders Triple lace frills make the sleeves over tight shirred ones of filmy chiffon that reach to the elbows A long scarf of blue mousseline de soie with long silken fringe circles high the waist and falls from the back to the hem of the skirt Shoes and stockings are of the tender blue of the scarf A pale pink rose pricks the hair and a second one is thrust into the sash at the left side Ofthe white tulle is another dainty gown hung over rose color made paler by a veiling of white mousseline de soie reflecting changing lights The hem of the tulle skirt is trimmed with tiny puffings and the low corsage is wholly bouillonne between each puff is twisted a ribbon of white satin knotting at the sides into smart bows Three of these twists of ribbon form the girdle ending in the middle of the back in similar bows Short wide open sleeves are edged with the puf fings A tiny wreath of pink roses finishes the edge of the corsage To Fatten the Neck To make the throat full and round the best exercise is to bend the head slowly forward until the chin touches the neck and then slowly raise the head to its normal position Repeat these movements until you are tired Then bend the head as far backward as possible Sitting erect in a chair bend the head from one side to the other and then roll the head to the right left and forward Another good position is to let the arms hang loosely at the side Raise the shoulders as high as possible then forward down and backward until a circle Is formed Continue this for a time and then reverse the motion Do this every day for five or ten minutes- It is also well to massage the neck and shoulders well with cocoa butter Preserving Lingerie Waists The lacey lingerie waists so popular of late are things of beauty t1I not joys forever by any means They are easily ruined in the tlaunderlng and the broken lace is difficultwell nigh Impossible to mend To greatly prolong their usefulness buy common wash net cut in strips or the shape of the insets and sew upon the under side of the inserted lace when the waist is new or as soon as it begins to break Even badly torn places maybe mended in this way the pattern being darned down invisibly upon the net Many very open patterns are really improved in looks by the add Lion of the netThe Housekeeper t jA L I t NnCURTAINS HAND PAINTED Newest Models Show Some Marvel ously Pretty Effects Hand embroidery and painting embellish the newest models in window blinds or flat curtains which are used so extensively now and the color is so deftly introduced that it does not clash with any of the other decora tions in the room or give too bright an effect to the blinds themselves The work is done on fine lace or some sheer material and the design follows the favorite Adams style or some dainty French festooned and garland ed patterns Medallions of cluny or filet arein set in many of the new flat curtains and blinds usually In a simple border or in a geometrical pattern An ex cellent material for these blinds is rather heavy holland of a rich ivory tint that looks especially well as a screen for the light It does not darken the room yet it makes a perfect shield on bright days There Is a new luster material which is much liked for curtains It is soft and more or less transparent but hangs grace fully and lends itself to a variety of decorative treatments For the more elaborate curtains tussore Shantung silk linens of fine and coarse mesh and mohair are all fashionable IN PLAIN DARKBLUE SERGE Serge is to retain Its

noteworthy Mme Monti Baldini as Rossini was deL licious her fine voice winning in- stAnt favor with the audience Her II Bacio in the singing lesson in the third act was perhaps her best effort at least it earned for her an ovation that an actress seldom receive on the stage John Dunsmure as Don Bassilio not only thrilled his audience with his magnificent bass voice but also furnished the lions share of the com edy and likewise received an ovation both in the second act and in the third at the conclusion of the ren dition of The Cellarers Toast Ro man Klekko as Figaro the barber divided honors with the others as did Pierre Gherardi in his admirable intrepretation of Count Almaviva Especial recognition is die Arthur Beigh the violinist and Walter A Pick the pianist also members of the company whose instrumentation of the difficult music carried the singer to such perfect success During the intermission Mr Beigh rendered two numbers which were enthusiastically encored Local

girl who had once been his wife had not turn ed to him in vain Before the light of her shaken mind had gone out she had written him incoherently practically in extremis and If he had hitherto doubted where his duty lay from that moment he had no longer any doubt And very quiet ly hopelessly and Irrevocably he had crushed out of his soul the hope and promise of the new life dawning for pastItended it yet He did not know how There were ties to be severed friend ships to be gently broken old scenes to be forgotten memories to kill There was also love to be disposed of And he did not know how First of all paramount in his hopeless trouble the desire to save others from pain persisted For that reason he had been careful that Gerald should not know where and how he was now obliged to live lest the boy suspect and understand how much of Selwyns little fortune it had taken to settle his debts of hon or and free him from the sinister pressure of Neergards importunities For that reason too he dreaded to have Austin know because If the truth were exposed nothing in the world could prevent a violent and final separation between him and the foolish boy who now at last was beginning to show the first glimmering traces of character and common sense So he let It be understood that his address was his club for the present for he also desired no scene with Boots whom he knew would attempt to force him to live with him in his cherished and brand new house And even if he cared to accept and permit Boots to place him under such obligations it would only hamper him in his duties because now what remained of his income must be devoted to Allxe Even before her case had taken the more hopeless turn he had understood that she could not remain at Clifton Such cases were neither desired nor treated there He understood that And so he had taken for her a pretty little villa at Edgewater with two trained nurses to care for her and a phaeton for her to drive And now the was installed there properly cared for surrounded by every comfort contented except in the black and violent crises which still swept her In recurrent stormsindeed tranquil and happy for through the troubled glimmer of departing reason her eyes were already opening in the calm un earthly dawn of second childhood Out side of that dead garden of the past peopled by laughing phantoms of her outh but one single extraneous mom try persisted the memory of Selwyn uriously twisted and readjusted to the comprehension of a childs mind vague at times at times wistfully elusive and Incoherent but It remained always a memory and always a happy one He was obliged to go to her every shesseemed quite satisfied and happy busy with the simple and pretty things she now cared for but toward the third day of his absence she usually became hernot come then they telegraph ed him and he left everything and went white faced stern of lip to en dare the most dreadful ordeal a man lipsfgayety the shrinking soul of him and sit with her In the pretty sun ny room listening to her prattle an swerins the childish questions watch ing her seated in her rocking chair PlarIingquivered under the misery of it and he turned to the curtained window clinching convulsively and teeth handsI force back thestrangling agony throat And the dreadful part of was that her appearance had remained unchanged unless perhaps she was prettier lovelier of face and figure than ever before Thinking of these things now he leaned heavily forward elbows on the little table And suddenly unbidden before his haunted eyes rose the white portico of Silverside and the green sward glimmered drenched in sun shine and a slim figure in white stood there arms bare tennis bat swinging in one tanned little hand Happily for Eileen happily for him alas love In its full miracle had remained beyond her comprehension That she cared for him with all her young heart he knew that she had not come to love him he knew too So that crowning misery of happiness was spared him Yet he knew too that there had been a chance for him that her awakening had not been wholly impossible And now leaning there his face buried in his hands hours that he spent with her came crowding back upon him and in his ears her voice echoed and echoed and his hands trem bled with the scented memory of her touch and his soul quivered and cried out for her Storm after storm swept him and in the tempest he abandoned reason withiacross his fatte IIi x r To be continued t 3 yn lltth 3lln YOU wish to be din the ranks IF the fashionable you must wear which match your gown So say the authorities in whose hands lies the awful power of dictating what women shall wear They do not deign to give good reasons for so autocratic- is their power that they can command obedience in a manner more absolute than can the czar of Russia The prevailing color is to be green and to meet the mode shoe manufac turers have put forth a green suede shoe to match the gowns There is a great variety in this article and one of the most fashionable styles consists of what is known as the sheath boot This is nothing more than the old fashioned tenstrapped sandal In stead however of having straps the shoe is made like an ordinary Napoleon boot but the tops are cut in a sort of diamond pattern and therefore show a good deal of open work The buttons are run right down the front of the shoe and afford the button man ufacturer an opportunity to do some fancy ornamEmtlng on the buttons Incidentally all the diamonds cut in the of the top of the shoe are finished in embroideryThe change in the new shoe will be the edge trimming In stead of having the edges trimmed close there is to be considerable leather on the outside of the shoe With the moderate shaped toe now in use by the manufacturers of lasts it is claimed that a wide seamed sole is necessary to bring out the good points of the shoe It is further said that full soles across the ball of the shoe prevent It from losing its shape One of the most artistic designs which has been put out consists of a DRESSING JACKET OF MUSLIN Ribbons and Embroidery Help to Elab orate the Garment For a useful dressing jacket nothing is better than white spotted muslin as it washes so beautifully This has a Vshaped yoke edged with button holed embroidery to thread ribbon through the material is gathered at the top and set to yoke under the em broidery puffed sleeve gathered into a band of embroidery through which ribbon is threaded with a frill of mus din trimmed with insertion and lace Materials required Four and one half yards muslin 30 inches wide two yards buttonholed embroidery one yard narrow lace 13 yards wide lace one yard insertion three yards rib bon Make Stockings LasthWhen buying boys stockings purchase as long as can be had Before wearing sew a neat tuck around the ankle When the stockinng is worn at the knee let out the tuck and the worn part will be raised so as to be covered by the trousers and the stocking will be as good as new- Figures and Stripes Figures and stripes are predominant for short skirt walking costumes Stitched bands of selfmaterial are used for trimming 2 J r cross strapped slipper buckling close to the instep Three frogs decorate the shoe under the straps The toe is pointed sharply and ornamented with a buckle The heel is higher than has been fashionable with the summer shoes allowing a decided arch to the instep For those who desire a high shoe the Vassar boot should meet all requirements These goods are being put out in bronze or soft black kid and in colors to match the fashionable shades in gowns which are dull blue wistaria bronze and the new shade which is popularly known as sand color having derived the name from its resemblance to the sand on a beach when the sun shines on it This shade is one of the most beauti ful in vogue for some time and is sure to be popular in shoes and gowns This shoe which Is distinctly individualistic has 11 straps the series culminating with a bow at the top of the shoe The high LouIs XV heel is in general the style but it is being manufactured also with the Cuban heel which has made such headway latelyThe most noticeable tendency in modern footgear is towards an in crease in ornamentation on the toe cap The spider slipper represents an extreme in this respect These goods made of suede or kid are heavily beaded and fasten with three straps of extremely ornamental pattern The shoe is made with the Louis XV hee and a long and slender last It is declared by the authorities that shoes of this style will be highly popular during the winter in spite of the fact that the protection that they afford the foot is extremely small BEAUTY IN THE EXPRESSION Kindliness and Good Nature Redeem the Plainest Features One of the first things that the girl who is seeking fon beauty must think about Is her expr Sion You will notice the plain girl whose face is so expressive when you would never even see the girl whose features were beautiful but whose face lacked ex pression Every one enjoys looking laughingsmiling face When you meet such a girl as this your mouth forms a smile in spite of you But when you meet the woman who is always whining or YOtitobecome irritable and cross and you wish you never had met her Imagine then your effect upon other people and if you feel that it is not as pleasant as it might be make it so at once Good nature is an Ideal beau tifier It brightens your eyes discourages approaching wrinkles brings tints of the rose into you cheeks while a cross disposition makes your eyes fretful and surrounded by crows feet and your mouth YOJlookVelvet Empire Belts Dead white cloth chiffon cloth and silk will be used this winter for elab orate indoor garments To give these color a wide soft belt of velvet is to be added The effect is quite vivid The smart women in Paris have been wearing these belts constantly at th races during the last fow weeks an there seems little doubt that the fashion will be taken up here It is about four inches wide is not folded but left quite plain It maybe of ribbon or of shaped velvet In the piece It is put around the figure jus below the bust and simply hooked at the back or front under a flap This is all there is to it but it is quite effective and new 4Green Hats for Girls The olive green hats that have topped the heads of young men

Is a Prime Necessity MUST BE FREE FROM Provision Should Be Made For Thor ugh DrainageHow to Roll th- FoundationMaterials e to Use For Surfacing Rural Highways Before a finishing surface of any material is applied to a road all the preliminary work should be completed 1ie road should havebeen grad red drains provided and the road made We by proper guard rails With all t1pidonethe dirt road Is a founda fot tlie different materials that may be put upon it For country roads these need be considered only pavements that are put on in small fragments The ma aerials most commonly used are gravel and broken stone Oyster shells and I slag from iron furnaces are oftentimes employed in localities where these ma terials are at hand while under cer tain conditions when no other ma terials could be obtained burnt clay 1has proved serviceable The object of a pavement is to furnish a wearing protectionrfor the foundation from water and con sequent softening It is in reality a roof sandtY soils are firm enough to support the weight of wagons of all kinds but when wet little support is furnished IfyisXwell known that sand when confined will stand any pressure that can be put upon it Thus if a sandyroad bed Is covered with a surfacing ma terial which will hold the sand in place obtaInedWhIleto take the wear it is the foundation anyris constructed without giv- Ing due attention to the foundation Is wrong from the start and never will be a good road until the defect Is rem edied To prepare a natural roadbed for surfacing material It is necessary to bring it to a proper grade and to conform its cross section with that of the finished surfacethat is no sur facing should be put upon a roadbed which Is flat or as is oftentimes the case lower in the middle than at the aides In instances the proper chap lhould be given to the roadbed fcy filling in with such material as is necessary and then rolling the whole until it becomes firm and unyielding During the course of construction of thatrhave a wet springy subsoil they must be drained and every precaution taken to make the foundation of the road dry The pavement will keep water from going through from the top but It will not keep water from percolating Into the foundation from springs at the sides or underneath Therefore where there is danger of water getting to the foundation from the sides or from below it must be cut off either by side drains or by drains directly tin theGsoil Is too light gravelly or sandy earth should be carted in to take its place With the roadbed brought up to grade and provision made for thor ough drainage it Is then compacted by rolling either by horse or steam power t In the rolling of the foundation per haps quite as good results can be obtained with a horse roller as with a steam roller and In some loose soils much less difficulty will be experienced although more rolling will be required to compact the earth as firmly as by the heavier steam roller This Is a part of the work that is too often slighted and is the cause of depres Biona subsequently appearing in the hed road The rolling of the foundation will bring out the weaker places where there will be a settling The depressions should be filled and brought to an even surface with grav el if it Is at hand It is cheaper to even up depressions by rolling the foundation than by attempting to smooth the finished surface with addl foundaEhas disappeared it is then ready to re celve the surfacing It oftentimes happens when grading A particular piece of road preparatory r to surfacing it with broken stone that It is necessary to do considerable heavy filling In such Instances it may be advisable to delay the laying of macadam for some time In order to give the embankments time to settleI for It impossible to construct an em bankment of earth more than a few feet in height without having subse quent settlement If this settling took place evenly all along the embankment xu particular harm would be done to the surfacing laid upon It but owing to the difference In the soils composing embankments and also the way the earth Is dumped there Is always a tend ency for some parts to settle more than ethers It there arise circumstances making tt Impracticable to wait for the em bankment to season every Precaution should be taken In Its formation to guard against uneven settling This tan be done by spreading the earth In successive layers of about a foot in thickness which are rolled or tamped as solid as possible Another advan tage In delaying the surfacing of a graded road Is that a

following tribute editorially to Mr Bryan Mr Bryans ambition was thor oughly legitimate and honorable He undoubtedly wished and honed tb serve the country with singleminded devotion Bue he has the consola tion of knowing that albeit in a dif ferent spirit and after a different manner the main policies which he has eloquently advocated in common with Roosevelt and Taft will be con tinued and extended Moreover Mr Bryan has nobly and sincerely preached to his fellow men- the peace that is the reward of conscience void of offense toward God and man The humblest cit izen he has said can secure that peace that satisfaction equally with him who Fields great power Mr Bryan will never be a humble citi zen for he is too gifted for such a role He has a strong hold on the affeection of millions and as an or ator writer and moral leader his place is high among his contempor aries High it will remain and his third defeat after a brilliant cam paign should bring him ng bitterness and no lasting Borrow And Walter Wellman writing from New York for the same paper says The election Tuesday suggests not only one of the western Democratic Governors as the standard bearer of the future but Mr Bryans natural and proper place in the party He is likely to be the leader of Democ racy for years to come the most powerful man in it the maker and unmaker of other men the framer of policies

raIroad industrial and financial condition o- rte country is Improving rapidly- It is a fact said he that the total operating revenue per mile of ral roads for the year ended June 30 1908 exceeds that of any other in the history of railroading in the United States except the one year of 1907 The average operating revenue per mile of line per month for the 228000 miles of railroad reporting to the commission was 894 for the fiscal year of 1908 This was less by about 61 than for the year of 1907 but it was more than any preceding year and was 118 per mile per month more than n the year of the last presidential election These facts bear out the statement I made last spring that the year would not prove BO unfortunate for American railroads as many lugubrious prophets fore casted The
