thing about it is that the coat, with
the exception of the shoulder sleeves,
is cut in one piece. It has the slight
ly fitted line at the waist, and the hip
length coat flares prettily. The' skirt
opens in the back and a slot seam
marks the front-a clusterof five darts
at either side emphasize the flare. A
little vest of white crepe with up
rolling collar gives an extra bit of
smartness to this smart little "trot

MEAT IS GERMANY'S CHIEF
Interesting estimates of the situa
tion in Germany from the viewpoint
of foodstuffs and copper, the two ma
terials which it had been expected the
British blockade would press most
closely, show that,the meat supply
presents the only really serious prob
lem, involving a probable reduction
of from 40 to 50 pe'r cent The esti
mate declares that it is very likely the
meat card will be introduced. There
is sufficient copper in Germany to
supply all demands for many years,
it is claimed. Altogether, It is esti
mated that about 7 per cent of the
normal imports of foodstuffs have
been imported. About 6 per cent of
the home food products have been
saved by feeding much of the German
army on foreign territory.
HOW DOTH THE LITTLE BUSY
who works like Sammie Hill, who
never gts a bit ahead, and likely
never will? The bee is busy day and
night, and honey by the pound he's
stored away with great care, so it will
sure be found. The bee works long,
nonunion hours and has no day of
rest! he buzzes here, he labors there,
on his sweet-smelling quest. He's
saving for a "rainy day," which he
will never see, he'll wear himself out
working, for he toils unceasingly.
The busy bee makes honey at a hun
dred in the shade, and you and I will
"swipe the stuff as soon as it is made.
He doesn't know enough to strike,
nor half enough to play, for he's al
waysbeen too busy-making sugar out
of miy. The bee is very peaceful,
you can rob him almost blind, and if
you're smooth about it he will even
think you kind. I guess he needs a
union with a walking delegate, an in
dustrial commission and 'a small voice
in the state. Charles B- Driscoll.

PRETTIEST GIRL IN AMERICA" HOLDS HER
BY IRENE HULL
Philadelphia, Oct. 3. The "pret
tiest girl in America" and they call
She's Gertrude Fischer,, 19, just
elected America's beauty by the na
tion's photographers in convention.
And her beauty doesn't bother her.
"Beauty of line am6unts to nothing
after the first ten minutes; the only
beauty that lasts is beauty of soul,"
she told me.
Her wide, wonderful gray blue eyes
showed she meant it.
She is 5 feet 8 inches ana weighs
140; her nose is short, her mouth mis
chievous and her voice like an angel's
with a slight cold. She's pro-German
and a suffragist She wants to be a
concert singer like Schumann-Heink
and to have lots of children.
Her ideal man? He's 35, with
gray eyes and Iron gray hair.
The "prettiest girl" has an elder
sister, Mary. I thought Mary was the
prettiest girl" when she. opened the
door for me. I still think if I was a
man I'd say, "Me for Mary!"
Gertrude thinks so, too.
"Being called the prettiest girl isn't
jjoing tb turn my head," she said.
"I'll fall in love and get married.
i maybe, but it will be to a man who.
