"Miss Nettleton," he said. "I have
heard of you. I am a friend of Wil
liard Hull, who has gone to look up
the hidden fortune of his dead uncle.
He did not find it at any 'wall,' as the

At least, my mind filled only with
honest motives, working on the pure
crystal-clear mentality-of this beauti

MOST POPULAR HAT IN PARIS
. JUST NOW
This is the most popular hat in
Paris 'just now. You see them on
milady driving in the Boise and on
Lissete over in the Latin quarter. In
deed so much is the shape and style
seen that before we get them over
here they will be a thing of the past
in the mind of the fickle Parisienne
The hat is a perfect plaque of fine

hack on a bandeau showing either a
full ribbon bow or flower, and a
wreath of flowers about the top and
a band of ribbon or velvet to hold it
down at the side. The color is almost
always white with yellow and black,
although these hats are seen in every

A MUMMY'S PLEA
The author of this poem is Mabel

resses who picketed Randolph street
during the Henrici strike before an
injunction was issued restraining
picketing. Miss Waumbaugh had her

who arrested her and is stiff suffering
from this injury.
Come forth, old comrade,
Where the city hums with trade and
And brave our troubled days.
Side by side let us stand x
In this vale of gloom,
Though it mean even death;
For we need your help
And you need ours
To shorten the poor man's
These men of money oh, so cruel;
Clothes from our bodies, bread from
our mouths they steal;
Then try to crush us beneath their
Men who let accumulation' of money
rule their soul.
Help us to get a fair show of what"
In this fight let us not falter,
Undaunted go to mpet the foe.
The rich shall not always have their
And all we ask shall not be denied,
'Twas ruled, we must be dumb,
So these printed bills must be our
May the motive sink into our heart
To make our purpose clear.
