Likewise, there is no creaking o-er the
fact of the establishment and operation of
sucker rod. air compressor, natural gas, and
plain steam cyllnaer pumps In the very
midst of Splndletop Hill, both of which
things arc accepted as indications that the
hysterical jeriod of the Southern oil field
has disappeared, and that the solid era
has found firm foundation.
According to Mr. Nicholson. Mr. Rockefel
ler is the principal owner in the Connecti
cut ZIiic Syndicate, which is back of the
proposition to establish a million dollar
smelter and foundry here. Also, according
to Mr. Nicholson, Sir. Rockefeller is a
large owner, if not a controlling one. in
Kansas City Southern Railroad shares, in a
Hteamshlp line that will operate between
Port Arthur and European ports In addi
tion to the present Standard Oil Company

It is hi plan, if Mr. Nicholson's Informa
tion Is true, to brine the crude zinc ore
down here, on his Kansas City Southern
Railroad, from the Southwest Missouri zinc
fields, to his rmelter and factory at Beau
mont; to operate the factory, and manu
facture the crude ore. through the use of
crude petroleum, drawn from his wells, to
ship the finished product by his steamship
lines to the Eastern Coast cities, and by his
railroad to the Central and Western trade
IJcnl Said fo lie Cloned.
It Is claimed that It Is cheaner to send
the crude zinc ore to Beaumont and have It
I smelted here than it would be to transport
I the oil to the zinc fields; for it is expensive
, to transport oil, and Mich vast quantities
I of It would be required that the profit of
manufacture close to the mines would be
I overbalanced. Besides, it Is argued that
there is no better seaport anywhere thtn
is that at Port Arthur.
The deal for the site for the smelter has
i now been definitely closed, the money paid
1 over, and the title to the property vested
; in .MarK t. cog, agent for the real promot
ers ot tne enterprise. Mr. aiower. who has
all along been conducting the deal for the
land, was here this week, and put the
finishing touches to the sale. The plant
has not .suffered any diminution from its

CORRECT THINGS IN
There Is said to be more silk in wear this
year than ever before. Shop books show
ten silk frocks made up for every one of
wool or cotton. Next after the silk ranks
the use of linen. Pongee and foulard and
the Joy of light dressing In hot weather Is
the cause of It all; and the pongees ate
lined, in lots of cases, with heavy cotton, at
least where stout women are concerned.
At this moment the absorbing fancy In
pongee Is the use therewith of richly em
broidered bands of linen. The embroidery
is done In small East Indian designs and
colors. The skirt of this i tucked perpen
dicularly from the hips, as are ninety-nine
of every round hundred of skirts one sees.
A deep hem is turned up at the foot, and
above this Is set the embroidery done of
very heavy and very coarse brown linen.
The same typo of embroidery treats the
waist, whirh opens in a long V down the
front to display a shirrrd vest of dotted
el!ow and white ilk muslin. Silk muslin
Is the material of the parasol.
There It. a brand-new hobby In parasols.
This i. firstly, the mosaic wood handle,
which comes from Paris. It Is a sort of
Chippendale handle, with a lovely cut crys
tal ball at the bottom, and In the center
of the ball Is Imprisoned a tiny woman's
head of gold. Now the covering of such a
parasol may be of plain pongee or taffeta.
GOWN OF SOFT GRAY VOIL.E.
to match one's gown, but underneath the.
silk dome and covering the bare steel ribs
Is an airy sheathing of accordion-plaited
silk tulle or Brussels net. as your pocket- t
took may afford. This sheathing extends
fiom the Inside apex of the dome down to 1
the tips of the rib nnd gives the parasol j
nn airy lightness of appearance. !
The most amazing amount of pure In
ventive talent has been lavished on the belts
of the hour. The Gibson belt, like the girl
nnd the shirt wait of that species, aros
and raged furiously for one short hour, but
already the vogue of that genus of cincture
Is done for. What all women desire Is. !n
the morning, a belt of the goods that in
color and texture will match the skirt or
shirt that is worn. Consequently the manu
facturer has responded to tho need, and we
have our choice of the smartest white pique,
colored linen and pongee belts, and every
one has a double-ringed brass, silver or
nickel buckle. AH these stitched bands are
easily detachable from the buckles and
can be tent to the washwoman, and though
the greater number cf these are exceed
ingly narrow, there are belts to be had as
wide as you please and of silk. Black and
white moire are among the very choice gir
dles, but one of the most tempting novel
ties In the shops Just now are extremely
coquettish cinctures for muslin frccks
called corsage bouquet bands. The strap
that circles the waist is ribbon, moire or
satin taffeta, and this is shaped wide in the
hack or as a conventional straight band. In
front the ends Join a litUe to one side and
there a cunning shower bew of narrow silk
or satin ribbon Is fastened. The founda
tion of the bow !. a rose of ribbon loops;
from thl drop ends of uneven lengths, and
the ends are finished with wee chiffon or
ribbon flowers. Some of these shower bows
are quite modest In proportions, while oth
ers, for use with evenine nwns. are nr.
Keedlngly elaborate, the cascades of chiffon
poies inning nearly to the knee.
This is a muMIn with the net- egghelt
finish, which Is given by he mercerising
process Tucks and lace applications, art
fully distributed, secure the perfect orna
mentation, and by way of color a glorie de
Dijon pink satin taffeta ribbon is threaded
through the bread beading at the hem's top
and at the bodice's top. A ribbon of the
same clasps tne watit and sleeves, and an
Incipient corsage bouquet bow is shown at
one side of the belt.

or even an edge of any kind. The all-over
lace Is drawn In, growing narrower as It
riears the waist, and a peculiar feature of it
Is the sharp points or rays which extend
out from it on either side. In the upper
part, where the lace Is broadest, the ravs
are carried over, or have that appearance,
onto the sleeve, although that is not ac
tually the case, as the lace is set In and Is.
o course, broken at the arm's-eye. At the
lo er part of the waist, where the lace
glows narrower, the broad ends of the
points come nearer meeting. More of the
all-over lace forms the lower part of the
sleeves, bring gathered In full a little below-
the elbow deep points of it extending
up Into the silk of the upper part.

NECK RIFFLES OIISOLETE.
Late Mode la of Irlili Point and Is
Edited With Chiffon Frllla.
A sailor collar of guipure or Irish point
that is a dainty finish to a pretty ?onn has
three or four rows of black or white chiffon
frills about four or five inches deep sown on
to Its outer edge, so that. the shoulders are
well covered. In the front, where the collar
meets at the nc:k. two long stole ends of
plaited or even of plain chiffon are set.
These arc caught from place to place with
large knots of black velvet with drooping
ends, and a very pretty and Inexpensive
mantelet is made at comparatively small
cost. If a little protection from chill around
the neck is necessary, the open-work collar
can be lined with some pale-toned taffetas
with cood effect. Ruffles, esneclallr the UD-
standing ones, are entirely obsolete. To be
gin witn. both neck bands ana coitrures are
worn lower this season than ever, so that
the mantelet formed with a larger turned
back collar is Infinitely more useful and
more comfortable for ordinary wear.

One linen gown has a Persian effect. It

The effect Is of tucks. These are made of
linen. The skirt and bodice are made en
tirely, with the exception of the yoke and
top of the sleeves, of tucks of the mate

skirt, being about two inches In width
around the lower edge and half an inch at
the wnlst. In the upper part of the back
the narrower of these tucks turn up to the
waist In the center of the back, giving a
much better effect than they wouii give It

Some Sensible Heasons Why Mrs.
Pinkham is More Successful Than
Many Family Doctors.
A woman is sick some disease peculiar to hrr sex is fast develop
ing in her systt-m. She soes to her family physician and tells him a
story, hut not, the whole itory.
She holds back something;, loses her head, lKonm; ajdtated, forgets
what she wants to say, and linally conceals what hc ought to have told,
and this completely mystilies the doctor.
Is it a wonder, therefore, that the doctor fails to cure the disease ?
Still we cannot blame the woman, for it is very emtarrassing to detail
'nine of the symptom? of her sMfering; even to her family physician.
This is the reason why hiiutlrrils of tIiottamls of mmien arc now
in correspondence with Mrs. IM'nklinm, at Lynn. Ma-s. To her they
can give every symptom, so that when t.he is ready to advto them she
is in possession of more facts from hr correspondence iith the patient
than the physician can possibly obtain t!.mngh a personal interview.
Following we publish a letter from a woman showing the resnlt of
a correspomlenco with Mrs. Pinkham. AH Mich letters are considered
absolutely contidcntial by Mrs. lMnkham. and an never published
in any way or manner without the conM-nt in writing of the patient ;

"Deab Ma. Pixkham: I have been taking your medicine for ttvo
months and write to you for ae advice Concerning1 it. I an in very poor

soreness in the back of my head and neck which develops into tn almost un
bearable headache at time of menstruation. Since last Aujrust I have been
confined to my bed a prcal part of the time. In January I was taken very
sick with one of my awful licad.-ches, and lay for five weeks in a critical
condition. Oar doctors were unable to tell me'the cause of my illness. I had
a sloir fever sccmtaly ia my nerves with a marked bilious affection. I was
completely prostrated. My physician did nothing for me but to put me to
