China For. Shirt Waist Scts.
New York giils do not a little de
signing themselves along the line of
ornamentation, and one of the new
est ideas sprang from the brain of a
Burden girl. Miss Burden concluded
that, amid the wealth of precious
metals and jewels used for belt
buckles and shirt waist sets, other
materials were being neglected woe
fully,- so she decided to employ china
as a relief from the eternal glitter of
the too-popular gold and silver pret
ties. In consequence. china sets prom
ise to be favorites this winter, espe
cially for morning wear. Don't jump
to the idea, however, that they are in
expensive. On the contrary, tney are
made of the most delicate china, and
their cost mounts high. The shirt
waist set includes, of course, cuff but
tons, pins for the blouse and a square
belt buckle of largs size. All the pat
terns are of fairy dimensions, and
most of them, in faint tints. The sets
look smart enough with the gowns,
of rough silk worn in the forenoon.
Miss Burden's favorite frock of that
kind is a golden brown, and the china
set that goes with it is addrned with
goldenrod.-New York Press.

In the late afternoon they come, in
thousands, out of stuffy offices and
crowded stores and noisy fictories.
They've been there all day long, pa

their living. All day they have been
under orders' and prisoners of rule.
But when they come forth In the late
afternoon all that is changed. Then
they dominate, and all men are sub

dominion. They banish discomfort
and quiet complaint and make habit

the presence of these marvelously
neat, calm, unobtrusive, unconscious
benefactors, the home-going cars in
the evening would be as cages of sul

"Mothers," said Mrs. Agnes A.

young boys in our public schools.
Many fine boys are being weakened
physically and neglectedl mentally
through too much athletics between
the ages of ten and eighteen.

years of age. Ordinary play Is enough
to keep a boy strong and growing nat

"The usefu~lness of public school
athletics, in their prevailing extent
of development, is more or less open,
and there is a considerable difference
of opinion as to the best methods of

the desirability of placing scholar

In private schools each institution
fairly decide the question of the
importance of athletics at it chooses.
Parents who do not approve of ath
letics have the privilege of sending
their children to schools where ath
letics are not exalted-and there are
some such. . The question of athletics
in the public schools, however, is
quite a different matter. It appears
to be the desires of the public, who
support the schools and for whom
they are conducted, that athletics
shall have a place. But that place
must be secondary to the main pur
pose of popular education."

The butler at a famous country house
where she visited was an aged man,
of silver hair and benignant coun

service in the family had earned their
full reward of affection and respect.
He felt an almost fatherly degree of
responsibility for the manners and be

him speaking to the youngest grown

her a lace scarf:

e -Region.-.~ :
About the busiest industrial region
on earth is the lowland of England
f:-om Lancashire and the Mersey Riv
er on the west to Newcastle-on-Tyne
in the northwest. Here are scores fi
cities and towns, the home of tie
textile industries, the potteries, the
great shops busy with iron and steel
and other raw materials, manufac
turing goods of high value for a mar
ket as wide as the earth. Over all
this lowland hangs a black pall of
soft c6al smoke, the landscape stud
ded with the tall spouting chimneys.
For all this endless activity in man
ufacture is wholly due to the location
in these lowlands of fabulously rich
deposits of coal. Coal for a century
and a half has been a magical bank
account in Great Britain, bringing in
to existence these great artisan popu
lations, making demands on every
continent for the metals and timber
and textile fibers for the busy mills,
and then calling on the farms ai
ranges of America, the Argentine and
other new lands, for the bread and
meat to feed these industrial millions.
Of all this textile territoy, Manches

Swarms of bees are sometimes com
pelled to take refuge in remarkable
shelters. A peculiar and instructive
instance was observed by the writer
in the spring of 1908. The swarm
flew over a large vineyard which con
tained few buildings. Oue of these
buildings was constructed of hollow
oncrete blocks. Th~e swarm flew
directly toward a small hole in one of
the blocks and disappeared in the in
terior. No doubt the swarm had
rested an a tree or shrub on the pre
ceding day and had sent out scouts
to seek a home.
The . couts found the little hole
leading into the great cavity of the
cncrete block and reported their dis
covery to their comrades. This case
furnishes indisputable proof that
swarming bees really send out scouts,
as they are believed to d. .for the
little hole could not have been dis
covered in the rapid and lofty flight
of the swarm.-Scentific American.
