IN THE recent trend towards American fashions
for American women, the question of their suc
cessful acceptance by women has been raised.
Three years ago The Ladies' Home Journal de
cided to adopt and design American fashions in
women's clothes. During that time it conducted
an extensive advertising campaign, almost entirely
descriptive of its American fashions, to find out defi
nitely whether the American women had sufficient
interest in the matter. When the magazine began
this American fashion advertising campaign it had a
circulation of 1,500000 copies. Of its last issue it
printed and oversold its entire edition of 1,760,000
copies. The direct retyjrns of its American fashion
advertising campaign alone were over 250,000
copies, the largest circulation increase ever made
by the magazine in an advertising campaign during
a corresponding period.
Since this advertising, over a year ago, it has held
every copy of this circulation, and never has its fash
ion department, now almost entirely given over to
American designed fashions, given such widespread
satisfaction, nor has its correspondence from its
readers about the fashion department ever been so
large or reflective of such keen interest.

that developed over the scar on tho
scalp of Medium Eusapla whenever sho
was having one of her best seances.
Mr. Carrlngton carefully described tho
scar and told that the strange phe
nomenon of the cold air current was one
of the things which first convinced him
of the honesty of the medium a psychic
powers. He considered It ono of her
"I firmly believe In this cold breeze,"
said Mr. Carrlngton. "When Mme. Pal
adins was giving a seance those near
her felt Its effect. And when a strip of
tissue paper was held over the scar It
fluttered liko a flag In the wind."
Mr. Carrlngton went on to say that
tho most diligent search of Paladlna's
head failed to reveal any hidden con
nection between the near and a source
of air pressure. He didn't sen how sho
could blow with her lips to make that
wind rise from the scar. He continued:
I do not think now thnt It was real
physical air that rose from the woman's
head. It was a payable agitation of thn
ether, which was really an example of thn
externalized vital energy of the medium.
And that waa not the only place where
this manifestation was evident. Thero
was also a spot on the medium's left knee
whioh had the same property and caused
what seemed like cold-air to circulate,
Mr. Carrlngton talked for an hour
nnd then his critics In the audience let
go. A man who gave his name as
Henry Rowley said! '
There may be something to this spirit
world, in .describing which Mr, Carrlng
ton has wasted so much of our time, but
to have wind escaping from the bruin of
ICusapla Paladlno and to have" tho wliolo
spirit world rest on that, why, It's foolish.
Even If 'she did blow through her scalp
why does that give her psychic powers?
Mr. Carrlngton admitted that wind
blew from the back of Busapla's head
and from the side of her left knee only
when she had a good seance. He con
cluded: Mu uateubitaUr had wonderful Mrohlo

not control over these powers at all times.
But Paladlno was so vain that she could
not admit failure. Then sho would resort
to all the tricks known tn the profession.
Hy tlm time the meeting was over
Mr. Carrlngton was ready to allow that
little was known about tho world of
