Telegram to Cali fornia LegislatorFirst Holds Conference v 4JI WshingfonFeQ9The policy of the administration is to combine the maximum of efficiency In achiev ing the real object which the people of the Pacific slope have at heart with the minimum of friction and trouble while the misguided men who advocate such action as this against which I protest are following aJ policy which combines the very minimum of efficiency with the maxi mum of insult and which while total ly failing to achieve any real result for good yet might accomplish an In finity of harm In this language President Roosevelt in a long telegram to Speaker P A Stanton of the California assemby set forth the governments view of the antiJapanese school legislation before that body The telegram to Speaker Stanton was sent only after a conference with Senator Flint and Representative Kahn of California and F K Lane of the interstate commerce commission To Speaker Stanton the president sent the following I trust there will be lio misunderstanding of the federal governments attitude We are zealously endeavoring to guard the Interest of California and of the entire west In accordance with the desires of our western peo pIe By friendly agreement with Ja pan we are now carrying out a policy which while meeting the interests and desires of the Pacific slope is yet compatible not lerelywith mutual selfr spect but with mutual esteem and admiration between the Amen cans and JapaneseV c kIycarry out this policy precisely as the American government is doing The policy aims at mutuality and obliga tion and behavior In accordance with it the purpose is that the Japanese shall come here exactly as Americans go to Japan which is In effect that travelers students per sons engaged in international bust ness men who sojourn for pleasure or study and the like shall have the freest access from one country to the other and shall be sure of tire best treatment but that there shall be no settlement in mass by the people of either country in the other During the last six months under this policy more Japanese have left the country than have come in and the total number in the United States has diminished by over 2000 These figures are absolutely accurate and can not be impeached In other words if the present policy is con sistently followed and works as well in the future as it is now working all difficulties and causes of friction will disappear while at the same time each nation will retain its self respect and the good will of the oth er But such a bill as this school bill accomplishes literally nothing what ever in the line of the object aimed at and gives just and grave cause for Irritation while in addition the UnIt- ed States government would be obliged immediately to take action in the federal courts to test such legislation as we hold it to be clearly a violation of the treaty ICOn this point I refer you to the numerous decisions of the United States supreme court In regard to state laws which violate treaty obligations of the United States The legislation would accomplish nothing beneficial and would certainty cause some mischief and might cause very grave mischief In short the policy of the administration is to combine the maximum of efficiency in achiev ing the real object which the people of the Pacific slope have at heart with the minimum of friction and trouble while the misguided men who advocate such action as this against which I protest are following a policy j which combines the very minimum of efficiency with the maximum of in failingtoyet might accomplish an infinity oii harm If In the next year or two the ac tion of the federal government fails to achieve what u is now achieving then through the further action of the president and congress itcan be made entirely efficient I am sure that the sound Judgment of the peo pie of California wilt support you Mr Speaker In your efforts Let me repeat that at present we are actually doing the very thing which the peo ple California wish to be done and te upiet the arrangement under which it is being done can not do good and may do great harm If in the next year or two

good fortune to be reared near a country town Still while tender memories hang around the old post there is muchabout It at times worthy nothingthattown look so shabby and thoroughly countrified and backwoodish as a roof w rickety old hitching posts on each side of the street Constant tramping and pawing near them makes holes in the ground unsightly mudholes In offensiveappear a bit of enterprise on the part of the merchant to erect a number o posts in front of his store but does he gain business by it How often do you see Farmer Shortcrop drive in tie his team to the post in front of Smiths store and go over to Greens to do his trading As long as hitching posts are allowed to occupy places In front of stores on main streets It will be im possible to keep the streets in the neat and good condition that they should be in Far better to have on some unoccupied street within easy reach of the business sections posts where the farmers can hitch their teams Every town which has the power to control its own affairs should make regulations that will keep the hitching post from ornamenting the main streets rMerit vs Prizes Premium schemes and prize offerings held out as bait to the people to get them touse certain brands of goods should be very carefully conSid- ered The most common plan is the certificate deal by which is promised some particle represented to be worth the total amount paid for goods if only a certain number be saved Com mon business sense assures that when such a proposition is made the goods must be of an inferior quality or that there is a catch somewhere Goods of merit do not have to carry a prize In order that they be in demand People are quick to buy goods of merit par theyknowthreaddifferentgiving prizes This is not the case with numerous classes of goods th attachmentMand the price paid for them more than givenItthing for nothing and the women who want trading stamps or a prize with their purchases pay pretty dearly for their whistles Unwise

Up Towns and In creases Business for All One of the troubles in small towns seems to be that petty jealousies keep the business men from working in har mony There is just so much business to be had and it either goes to the home stores the mail order houses the department stores or some nearby city or perhaps is let go to a- more progressive neighboring town It should be the aim of every town to make Its trade territory as large as possible It is the attitude of the business men that counts One good live man in business in a small town is a benefit to the whole place He brings trade to all People are swayed to and fro by opinions that are formed sometimes without careful reasoning It is the best policy to treat each and every one fairly and honestlyLet average farmer think that he has been given the worst end of a bargain And he will ponder over the matter for years It is not a good idea for a merchant to have a scale of prices for different customers Charge John Jones 12 for a suit of clothes and sell the same suit to his neighbor Jim Smith for 11 and Jones will find it out and feel that he has been treated unfairly and Jones Is right about it too There is one towns county seat in a western state a place of nearly 3000 popula tion Its trade territory extends for a dozen miles in each direction The populattoncustomers liberal buyers and not quibblers over prices Still they de ire just treatment A few years ago thousands of dollars in trade was di verted from the town through a deal r in agricultural implements being a poor business man A wealthy Ger man purchased from him several hun dred dollars worth of agricultural ma chihery wagons and other goods The farmer wanted a harrow A price was made33 A few days later the farmer was at a town where there were but two stores and an elevator He saw the same kind of har row and was told that 2850 would buy it He visited the county seat a few days later called on the man from whom he purchased his imple wmenu and again asked the price of the harrow and was told the same thefsame make and kind of harrow had been offered him for 450 less Aftec some talk he was told that he cowl haVe the piece of machinery for th same price He did not take it but secured the one offered him by the man in the smaller town He did not theIlthat the other storekeepers pf the place were of the same caliber H quit trading and not alone was Iii trade lost to the county seat town but the trade of a score of his neighbors and even they changed their post of fice addresses to the smaller The trade of this one farmer lost t the county seat was the means o building up a healthy trade in Ute smaller town and bringing to It other business places D MCARR Nonprogressive People A commercial club a business mens association or whatever it ma be called that is useful in furtherin the Interests of any city Or town is a highly useful organization The field for work is unlimited Its extent is only limited to the power of the

their purpose they are not started rightly Som- person who has nothing to 3o but col lect rent pay his money for supplies to some mall order house and collect interest from the bank or the ones whose

that our correspondent 4s infoI I remem her being in just such a fix about fifteen years ago At that time I wrote to one or two farm papers for advice visited several dairy farms and finally

was covered with German lap siding and a good shingle roof and the building complete cost me less than 50 I did all the work myself and at this time of the year when I was not busy Now is a good time to erect such a small dairyhouse and have it ready when the cold weather comes on I laid a wood floor in my dairy house at that time but I should not do it again I should lay a good foun dation wall ol stone set deep enough gingto secure good Of course this would depend on the location and the surrounding surface drainage In of in floor and a hardwood floor I should fill the up to required height and lay a solid cement floor about four inches thick Curve the edges up with cement to form a baseboard section about six inches high and fill in between the studding Finish the top surface with a strong mixture of cement and sharp sand two to one The top of the base should be flush with the ceiling laid on the Inside oil the studingThe picture shows the interior of the dairy house which was celled with pine some time after the house had been used for buttermaking At first it had no ceiling except up about three feet from the base to form a sort of wainscoting The cement floor should have a good slope to one side or end with a solid cement gutter connecting with a good and trap into a sewer that runs out some distance from the building Such a floor can be kept clean by frequent flushing with plenty of water and is about the best and most sani tary arrangement I have ever seen Our dairy house was about 100 feet from the barn Each pail of milk was carried directly into the

wKeilliloky May learn The question of good roads has always been a vital one with all coun tries Cicero said that the enemies of Rome would laugh at and despise her situatedamong mountains and val leys stuck up as it were and raise aloft amid garrets with poor roads and with very narrow streets Just as in ancient times Rome wa laughed at for her shortsightedness i this respect so the intelligent and forseeing leaders of today are com miserating the shortsightedness of those who cannot see the wisdom and practicability ofa universal good roads Road Conditions A recent Washington dispatch says that Presidentelect Taft favors sell mternallmprovemeIitslThe are in the United States 2150000 miles of roads of which only 150000 miles are improved roads about 7 pe rcent The average haul by theI farmer in getting his products to mar kt is nine miles A load of COO pounds requires two horses fiveI hours to haul to market on an unim proved road while a load of 1200 pounds can be haudled by one horse in two hours the same distance on an improvedroad An estimate made by the Interstate Commerce Commission places the total amount of products hauled at 250000000000 pounds On thebasis of these figures improved roads would result in a saving an nually of about 305000000 Canada being alrger in area than the United States not reckoning Alaska it would seem would eventually have almost as great a mileage of public highways as the United States For many years to come of willIwill require little e old idea taught us in our geographies and histories that the country to the northof us is largely a frig and barren waste is a mistaken one as the immigration of hundreds of thousands of Americans into Western Canada during the last few years has taught us and it is only a matter of time when the greater portionof the coup try will bef settled and populated per haps as generally as Russia Building of Railroads Canada has built at least one rail road for the development cf the coun try and has subsidized others The building of the Canadian Pacific wits accomplished through the efforts of the government by giving a large sub sidy to a syndicate of English cap italists and thus the provinces on the Atlantic were connected with those on the Pacific by a continuous line In more recent years the government has made a large grant TO the Grand Trunk Pacific for a line paralleling the Canada pacific several hundred miles north of it and this line is now in process of construction Since the Canadian people hake shown a disposition to make liberal grants for railroads to open up new areas it would not be surprising if they also made similar provisions for the network of highways thatusually forerun the iron horse Our Road Beginnings Early in the nineteenth century the American colonies then having a pop ulation about equal to the population of Canada today built the old Nation al road from Cumberland Md to St Louis Mo and this had much to dp with the pushing West of the early pioneers of the countr and was doubtless a strong factor in settling that country While lute population of Canada is small only about 7000000 it would seem that over that vast area it would be a hopeless undertaking to build good roads everywhere The popu lation is scarcely more than three times thai of Kentucky and yet the area sas mentioned above greater than that of all the United States But so far the efforts of the Govern ment towards building roads has nee essarily been confined to the provinces containing the major portion of the population such as Ontario Quebec and the Maritime Provinces and in a smaller way to Manitoba the territo ries and British Columbia No Federal Obstacles In Canada there is no Federal pow er scepter to rise up as in the United States when a question for the gen eral good of the provinces as units arise All interprovincial matters are regulated by the general government at Ottaw as are matters of inter state commerce in this country The improvement of the public highways and all other affairs of snilrchar acter is the work of the Department of Public Works An assistant to the head of this departatent lias ekarce pf the matter pi rod asprora r r t r 1t I ment This deputy minister is under the civil service rules and like the judges of that country he is appointed for life and good conduct Builderds business and that of his efficient corps of enginers to go to the intellis roadnand also to supervise the ex penditures of government money as granted for public highways and generally to educate the public to a realization of the nearness of the question to the public welfare More than 750 municipalities in Canada are dealing with the question Grad ually the country is outgrowing the statute labor system as the ineffic- iencY of it is being realized Under this system fully ninety per cent of the cost of roadmaking is for men and teams thus leaving a very small fraction for the purchase of material The wastefulness of this system is every where being appreciated and a better system is known to be available In one county where the old system 6f roadmaking is still in vogue it was recently shown that from 1896 to 1905 102239 days of statute la bor had been expended on the roads in addition to 82 436 in money Estimating a day of statute labor at the low price of 1 and the expenditure amounted to 280666 and yet with this great cost nothing had been accomplished beyond temporary patch and repair This amount judiciously expended under expert supervision would have built miles of good roads aids similar amount expended during another decade would go far towards solving the road problem for the county And yet hi that very county the facilities for road im provement were at hand and only for the want of any investigation of the subject is the conidtion of bad roads allowed to continue So well iioweverhas the system f the general government worked that there remains but few counties in the Province ofr Ontarioout of nearly 100where good roads have not been realized at feast partially tCare of Roads The legislative measure designed to improve the highways throughout the country is known as th Highway Im provement Act It applies exclusively to county systems and only through a county system can the municipalities receive its benefits Wherever counties have adopted it they have found it very successful By this means the roads are so classified thatthose most important and most heavily travelled receive the attention which their importance demands The roads which receive the benefits pf this act are those which if provided will be the most used by the public and which will best serve the requirements of the people in eac hsection One road in each township precinct is im provedor perhaps parts of several roads somehow to make anetworkof roads leading to the principle marketplace of the farmers Then when the system is complete in one township or precinct it is the aim to have them connect with a similar system in the joining precinct so as to from a continuous system But this is not always feasible In somecasesall the roads lead to one common market center In others conditions are different The aim is not necessarily to have a continuous system but to have a useful one Ap parently the socalled county roads comprise about onetenth of the total roadmielage of the counties Those matters of detail as to de terminin what are county roads on which government funds should be expended are left to the judgment of the county councils which comprise- a sort of fiscal court The actual im provements may be placed wherever they wil bring the best results to the greatest majority Uniformity Secured This act aims to secure a uniform system of management and classifica tion according to the traffic on the roads It does not necessarily mean an increased expenditure on the part of the municipalities It seeks to combine the more important roads in one class and under one management with proper methods and machinery for dealing with this class ofwork This really means reduction in cost and the production of a better class of roads The enforcement of this act doiibt less in many cases means an increas ed expenditure on roads but this increase is covered by a government grant With the main county roads di sea of the townships orb pre cIDefsare left to do the work

Prciit and Satisfaction to k Farmers Should Result From Its Work oJ i7 Washington Feb 9 President Roosevelt sent to congress today nj Special message transmitting the report of the country life commission appointed by him to investigate the conditions of life on the farms of the country and to make recommendations of ways and means whereby farm life may be made more remunerative and attractive In the message the stress upon the fact that the farmel11 Q1strengthever tends to make their lives less burdensome or unattractive is ncesI sary to the interests of the nation He praises the work of the of the commission who as membersII have labored without pay now ask compensation for their work The only recommendation in the mes sage is the request for an appropria tion of 25000 to enable the commis sion to digest the material it has col lected and put thatxit will be available for the nation In an appendix to the message preceding the report of the commission the president comments on the replies made by a Missouri farmer to the ques tions asked by the commission To the question Is the supply of farm labor in your neighborhood satisfacto ry the answer is No because the people have gone out of the baby busi ness and when asked as to the reme dy he answers Give a pention to every mother who gives birth to seven living boys on American soil fOI1lsentatives i I transmit herewiththe report of the commission on country life At the outset I desire to point out that not a dollar of the public money has been paid to any commissioner for his work on the commission The report shows the general condi tion of farming life in the open coun try and points out its larger problems It indicates ways in which the government national and state may show the people how to solve some of these problems and It suggests a continu ance of the work which the commis sion began v Methods of the Commission Judging by thirty public hearings to which farmers and farmers wives from forty states and territories came and from 120000 answers to printed questions sent out by the department of agriculture the commission finds that the general level of country life Is high compared with any preceding time or with any other land If It has In recent years slipped down in some places it has risen in more places Its progress has been general if not uniformYet rnWig does not yield either the profit or the satisfaction that it ought to yield and may be made to yield There discontent in the country iind In places discouragement Farmers as a class do not magnify their calling and the movement to the towns though lam happy to say less than formerly is still strong How Farmers Can Help Themselves Under our system It is helpful to promote discussion of ways in which the people can help themsel s There are three main directions In which the farmers can help themselves namely better farming better bust ness and better living on the farm The national department of agriculture which has rendered services equaled by no other similar department in any other time or place the state departments of agriculture the state colleges of agriculture and the mechanic arts especially through their extension work the state agricultural experiment stations the Farmers union the grange the agricultural press and other similar agencies have an combined to place within tIM roach of tlw American farmer an amount and quality rof agricultural fnforma ttoa which if applied wenld oafeto him over largo areaa to doable the production of tho farm The object of the eownrtsslon Oft country life thoroTore la not to help the farmer raise bettor crop but to call his attention to the opportunities for bettor bush QII and better llrmg on the farm If country life la to become what it shouts be and what I believe it ultimately Rill beone of the most dignified desirable ant smgbt- after ways of earning t llvtng the farmer must take advantage not only of the agricultural knowledge which itt his disposal but of the methods which bistre raised and continue to J if false the statidaids s tf living and of intelligence in other callings Those engaged in kUtother Industrial and con irtial caUings have found it necessary under modern economic conditions to organize themselves for mutual advantage end for the protec tion of their pwn particular interests In relation to other interests The- farmer of European countyrykbarerealized this essen tial fact and have found In the co operative system exactly the form of business combination they need Now whatever the state may do toward improving the practice of agri culture it is not within the sphere of any government to reorganize the farmers business or reconstruct the social life of farming communities It Is however quite within its power to use Its influence and the machinery of publicity which it can control for calling public attention to the needs and the facts For example it is the obvious duty of the government to call the attention of farmers to the grow ing monopolization of water power The farmers above all should have that power on reasonable terms for cheap transportation for lighting their homes and for innumerable uses in the daily tasks on the farm Farmers Own Work Needed It would be idle toassert that life on the farm occupies as good of posi tion in dignity desirability and busi ness results as the farmers might easily give it if they chose One of the chief difficulties is the failure of country life as it exists at present to satisfy the higher social and intellectual aspirations of country people Whether the constant draining away of so much of the best elements In the rural population into the towns is due chiefly to this cause or to the superior business opportunities of city life may be open to question But no one all familiar with farm life throughout the United States can fail to recognize the necessity for building up ttie life of the farm upon its social as well as upon its productive side It Is true that country life has improved greatly in Attractiveness health and comfort and that the farmers earnings are higher than they were But city life is advancing even more rapidly because of the greater atten GIFFORD P1NCHOT WALTeRH Gr ROt WORK ment For just this reason the introduction of effective agricultural co operation throughout th United States is of the first Importance Where farmers are organised cooperatively they not only avail themselves much more readily of business opportunities and improved methods but It Is found that the organizations which bring them together in the work of their lives are used Also fdr social and intellectual advancement The cooperative plan IB the best plan of organization wherever men have the right spirit to carry It out Under this plan any business under taking Is by a committee Every man has one voto and only one vote and every one gots profits ac cording to what he sells or buys or supplies It develops individual re sponsibility and has a moral as well as a financial value over any other planFarmers Problems the Whole Countrys- I desire only to take counsel the farmers as fellow citizens It is not the problem of the farmers alone that I am discussing with them but a problem which affects every city as well as orery farm in tho country It la a problem whICh the working farm ers will have to solve for themselves bt It is a problem which alo affects in enly less degree all the rest of us ad therefore If we can render any help toward Its solution It is not only our duty but our Interest to do se The will I hope males it- dear why I appointed a eomraiseiov to consider problems oNfarm life which have hitherto had far too little atten tUra x4 the nogiect ef which has not- eHly hold back Ufo ia tho country but also lowered tho efficiency of the whole nation The welfare of the farmer is of vital consequence to the welfare of the whole community The strength ents of country life therefore is the strengthening of the whole nation The commission has tried to help the PFob1emjuish clearly between what the gov ernmentandp rnd what the farmers must dp fort thtemsGlves and it wishes to brias no en2 the farmers but the u theicrpps an essential part Is only a part of country life Crop growing Is the essential founda tion but it Is no less essential that the farmer should get an adequate return for what he grows and It is no less essentialindeed it is literally vital that he and his wife and his children shall lead the right kind of lifeIFor this reason it is of the first imIportance that the United States ment of agriculture through which as prime agent the ideas the commIssionI stands for must reach should become without delay in fact a department of country life fitted to deal not only with crops but also witlf all the larger aspects of life in the open country Three Needs of Country Life From all that hasbeen done and learned three great general and imme diate needs of country life stand out First Effective cooperation among farmers to put them on a level with the organized interests with which they do business SecondA new kind of schools in the country which shall teach the IndoorsI atiThird Better means of communication including good roads and a par eels post which the country people are everywhere and rightly unani mous in demanding To these may well be added better sanitation for easily preventable disI peoihealthOrganization is Necessary The commission points outand I concur in the conclusionthat the most Important help that the government whether national or state can give Is to show the people how to go about these tasks of organ atlon ed theibe done by the collection and spreadI of information One thus be Informed of what

does notcul- tivate arty mans farm for him but it does put at his service useful knowl edge that he would not otherwise get In the same tho national and state governments might put into the peoples hands the new and right knowledge of school work The task of maintaining and developing the schools would remain as now with the people themselves Money For Expenses Asked The only recommendation I submit is that an appropriation 25000 be provided to enable the commission to digest the material it has collected and to collect and to digest much more that is within Its reach and thus complete its work This would enable the commission to gather In the harvest of suggestion which is resulting from the discussion it has stirred up The commissioners have served without compensation and I do not

barrooms and at the rail grocul station he hinted at first that a certain person every one knew could tell a lot more about the death of the old man than he eared to have known After a few days he began to bring c4nversarttonthen common report When itbecame known that Jack had paid off the mortgage on his ranch Buck came put With the accusation that Payson was the murderer Finding that he was listened to Buck made the direct charge that Payson had killed the sta tion agent and with the proceeds of the robbery was paying off his old debts Gathering his own men about him tad being joined by the idle hangers ia who are to be found about every J WB Buck led his party to the ranch en the Sweetwater to accuse Jack and ibthrow off in advance any suspicions which might attach to himself Fortunately Slim happened to be at Sacks ranch at the time When he entered the corral he found Jacks ac cusers and defenders rapidly nearing a battle Jack was taking the charges coolly enough as he did not know what support McKee had manufactured to up hold the charges he made Slim in formed McKee he would listen to what hre thought Jack guilty he would place him under arrest for all concerned It would be better to go into the house tthe Sweetwater boys surrounded Jack as they followed Slim into the living room Lining up in opposing groups Slim stood in the center to serve as fudge and Jury with Buck and Jack athis right and left hand Inside the door Jack said Keep as quiet as you van boys I dont want to alarm my wife Now what is iUIThe punchers hushed their eton of the charge and listened attenI tively to what the men most interest ed had to say well darn it all apologized the sheriff to Jack its all darn fool busI- ness anyway Buck here he startedI It Jack smiled

you point to me as the man asked Jack quietly You wuz late gettin to yer own weddln Fresno could not repress his feelings any longer He started angrily to ward McKee but Jack and Sagebrush held him back The others were about to follow his lead when Slim motioned them back with the caution Keep ou- ef t boysI explained Jack but I told you I rode around to the station to get wedding present

young ranchman listened to the sheriff earnestly He wished to clear himself forever of all suspicions He did not want Echo ever to hear that there was a false impression abroad that she was the wife of a slayer What Is iUhe asked simply Why you paid off a mortgage of an even three thousan dollars last week didnt Yes What has that to do with it he asked Buck broke in at this point Here was the strongest card that he had in playedliltan man thousan dollars An you mean to say that the boss here began Sagebrush in his anger making a rush at McKee He was held back but the disturbance attract ed Echo and Mrs Allen from the kitchen Echo hurried to her hus bands side He slipped his arm about her waist and together they faced his accuser All you got to say Is whar did you hadbseen Dick Lane pay it to Payson and conjectured that Payson did not dare to reveal the fact of this payment with all the disclosure it implied Why it was paid to me by Then Jack stopped He could not tell who gave him the money without revealing to Echo the return of Dick The whole miserable lie would then come out Echo noticed Jacks hesitancy What is it Whats the matter she asked in frightened tones Nothing nothing he answered lightly to lessen her terror Hats off everybody commanded Slim In deference to the presence of Echo 1Who are these men Whats wrong pleaded Echo Buck bowed to the trembling woman who had thrown her arms about her husbands neck Nothin he exclaimed only we want to know whar yer husband got the money to pay off the mortgage on this ranch The request seemed a very simple one to Echo All the talk of harming Jack the high words the threats could be silenced easily by her hero Smiling into his eyes Echo said Tell JackI he faltered paid to him by a friend EchoD friend to whom he

Dressmaker prominentIrole In midwinter fashions for as satinfinished fabrics grow in favor so do plain skirts which fact throws the responsibility of trimming entirely on the bodiceIThe secret of successful blouse building this season is to secure by the adjustment of girdle and trimming the effect of a onepiece costume even though the skirt and blouse be separ ate One should emphasize the importance of having the girdle match or harmonize perfectly with bodice and skirt thereby forming a connecting linktIn the season when the manyblackgowns of other colors such as gray tobaccobrown deep red bluette etc For a time this picturesque style ape pealed but now it has been abandoned Afternoon Blouse In LondonSmoke Broadcloth with Braided Bolero in favor of matching sashes and truly this is a blessed economy for women of slender means Anyonepiece costume whether cut on princess empire or directoire lines is an appalling task for the home dressmaker but It is a comparatively simple trick to simulate these effects in a twopiece costume when the ma terial of the skirt is employed in the blouse and a high girdle is added In planning this seasons blouse to match any skirt it must be borne in mind that the lining must fit snugly and that there must be no fullness nor pouch at the waist line The fullness is over the bust and shoulders never lower Another feature oft the uptodate blouse is the guimps yoke or tucker effect and the woman of slender purse will find that she can freshen her wardrobe wonderfully by Introducing novel guimpes Our illustration suggests a stunning Idea for the girl who can braid and embroider quickly As will be seen by reference to the plain model of the bolero sections in the upper corner the foundation on this frock Is very simple but a girl who can braid evenly and work solid discs of Heavy em broidery silk in between the braid pattern will soon have a very ornate and effective afternoon blouse The model from which this was sketched was a Londonsmoke broad cloth combined with net dyed to match a matching sash of messaline and a touch of flame color in the em broidery The guimpe was made of the coarse net laid In broad tucks and fitted snugly into the waist line The broadcloth used In the skirt formed the foundation of the bolero and was almost hidden by soutache braid In London smoke and embroidered discs in flame color The upper edge of the bolero was finished with teethshaped trimming of broadcloth each finished with gray braid and a flame colored disc while the lower part of the bolero had a fin ish of fine Londonsmoke ball fringe A touch of the braid and embroidery was also introduced around the high collarPieces of embroidered crepe de chine Jetted net braided net and lace in which fine braid or

phases but ever In a larger way The parallels resulting are often star onlyATORbat between mea who were the chief figures of those times Lincoln was so peculiarly a child of- Lr American democracy however that It is dIfficult to find his antetype The most obvious parallel to Lincoln fis Moses It is to be hqped that no tbody will be shocked by such a com iparison and it is confidently believed
