New Fall Suits.
If a woman can not appear
well turned out this season it
must surely be for' lack of
thought, for when combinations
rule the mode, a limited expen
diture is never a bar to smart

very easily be brought up-to-date

covered with the same materials
are used on coat and skirt to car

Coat and Skirt Lines.
Fancy coats are the rule in all
the new suits. Blouses built on

FORCE OF BIG WAVES.
Fearful Power That Is Exerted by n
The avernge inlittel American -who
has never seen the ocean has no real
idea of the force of its waves. He
reads about the storm, of boats being
carried away and bulwarks stove, but
he does not realize the steam hammer
blows that may be struck by mere
A recent storm on the British coasts
received the otliclul designation of a
storm of "extreme force." A picture
taken in Hastings harbor shows the
concussion with which the waves
struck the sea wall, sending the spray
apparently higher than the buildings
along the street. Blocks of concrete
:ind iron railing were torn from the
new parade extension at Caroline
place and tossed back Into the road
way as if they had been bits of
plank. Timber work that had with
stood the stress of years wits torn
nimrt and carried away. Basements
were flooded along all the seaward
face of thetow-n.
Such a storm when it sweeps over a
ship will sometimes carry away al
most everything on deck. Deck houses
are often smashed, nnd the lifeboats
are often stove in and ruined.
Various attempts have been made to
devise motors to develop power from
the force of the waves. The amount
of energy washed through their lack
of success is beyond estimate. If the
power of the sea could be used It
would drive the machinery of an un
limited number of plants. -Excaange.
