CHIC SUIT IN POMPEIAN RED
For the gray wmtry days the color
is heart-warming. This smart gown is
a duvetyn tallleur trimmed with opos
sum. CREPE DE CHINE IS FAVORED
Popularity of Fabric Past Season In
dicates That It Will Be the
Standby for 1921.
Paris has a way of developing a
fashion which, seemingly unimportant
at its inception, often becomes a dom
inating feature of such" importance
that it develops into a world-wide
movement. During the last year there,
has been gradually developing a
strong feeling in favor of crepe de
chine In preference to almost any
other silk fabric. This simple and
not at all dressy material came al
most without herald as n medium for
developing seroldressy toilets.
Several well-known makers, such as
Chanel, Miller, Soeurs and Rolande.
emphasized crepe de chine in their
spring collections. Some of the larger
and perhaps more Important bouses,
such as Collet. Cherult and Madeleine
et Madeleine, while they showed
crepe de chine In their collections, did
not make an emphatic point of It, bul
talked rather of more novelty fabrics.
But when the Parislenne begnn to
buy her summer wardrobe It was
early manifested that crepe de chine
was to have a big vogue. Before rold-
f-summer arrived it was not only the
crepe de chine dress, but it was the
crepe de chine cape that carried the
palm for summer success. In the fail
collections of the houses who bad
early success with crepe de chine, an
Increasing number of models In this
material was shown. Crepe de chine
was used for foundations of dresses of
lace and metal novelties-in preference
to satins. New fail mantles of tissues
and of furs began to be lined with
crepe de chine.
All of this Is most significant from
a standpoint of distribution. It looks
as if crepe de chine may be the big
seller In 1921, taking the place to no
small degree of voiles, taffetas and

Ginghams are particularly good In
color and plaldings. The plain col

are fascinating In tbelr'partlcnlar way.
Then there are cotton Japanese crepes,
which are quite Inexpensive and which
have budded out this season in col
ors that have not been obtainable for
many seasons past. Linens are still
very scarce and expensive, but they
can be had by the fastidious by the
expenditure of large sums of money.
Dimities have been most marveious

one of the successful cottons of the

CHARLES E. STUMP HAS BEEN TRAVELING SO LONG
AND30 FAST UNTIL HE BROKE DOWN AND
WAS FORCED TO RETIRE TO A SANITARIUM IN
Park Sanitarium, Guthrie, Okla. It
is necessary for the old engine to back
into the round house for repairs, and
this is what has happened to me, and
I have had almost a complete break
down on this round, and you will see
where I am this week getting fixed up
again before starting out, but I will be
discharged by Dr. H. "W". Conrad, and
will leave hero for other parts'. T must
ask you to pray for me that I may
bo fully restored to health. If I am
not, then it matters not for I am ready
for anything that may como to me.
You have been keeping up with me,
but you have not known how I have
suffered on this trip. It started while
I was in Chicago, but I kept a stiff
upper lipfecling that it would leave
mc. From Chicago, down through Mis
souri, Kansas, Oklahoma, into Texas.
It was in Texas that I had to give up
and go to a doctor. I went to see Dr.
Sterling in San Angelo, Tex and you
will recall I said many things about
that place, and enjoyed being there as
well as a sick man could. Then I made
my way across to Abilene, Tex., and
then to Mineral "Wells, Tox., and from
there I made it to Ft- Worth, where
I found Dr. X. T. Wallis, with his auto
bile car. carriage awaiting my arrival,
to tote me to a doctor, and see-if I had
to leave here then or remain here on
earth a little longer. He toted mo
right on to the ofiico of Dr. A. B. Bor
ders, a product of Mcharry College, in
Nashville, and ono of the busiest young
physicians, in the city. He took mc
in, pulled off all of my clothes, and
put me through an examination, and
then went right on and got some medi
cine and got mc busy. I tell you there
was but little time lost in getting busy.
Mrs. "Wall is, that queen in the home
of Dr. Wall is, had the bed ready for
me, and soon I was ia it, taking medi
cine, and I was told to remain in that
bed as long as I wanted to, and they
would look after me without money or
cost. That is what I call friends, and
it pays to make them.
I was soon out of bed, and headed
for this place, stopping to take .some
rest at Oklahoma City, where I found
Dr. Slaughter, and others -ready to do
for me. Dr. A. M. Johnson, looked
after mc, as well as he could, also Miss
Florrie D. Pugh, of the A. M. E.
Church. Dr. Smith, a worker in the
Baptist Church. It seemed that all the
people wanted to do something for mc.
I did not realize that I had so many
friends until I got sick. Mrs. Emma B.
Gordon, who was at one timo Miss
Emma B. Derrick, of Alabama, one of
the finest domestic science teachers in
America, was ready to do her part, as
well as Miss Luella Lawson, a teacher.
But Oklahoma City lost its charms, for
me, for I had decided to make to the
greatest physician our race has in
America, Dr. H. "V7. Conrad.
Speaking of Dr. H. W. Conrad, it
seems that God just put him here to be
a doctor, and he is one believe me
honey. His father before him was a
real doctor in Louisville, Ky., and H.
"V7. is now the son of his father. He is
now a man of worth to the nation.
He 'does not make much fuss, but he is
a busy man all the time. Ho just gets
that pipe in his mouth when he is not
looking after the sick, and he is search
ing and reseraching for information
along the line of his profession, or to
see what the world is doing. He is a
great reader, and believo me when I
tell you there is not a better posted
man in the country, than this young
man, from way down in Kentucky.
If you should ask him how.he got out
here, he would never be able to tell you,
for he enjoyed a luxurative practice in
Louisville, but God just wanted him
out here where ho was needed. Then
he- directed him right to the spot where
he could render tho greater service for
his -people. He has on his place a well
whose waters will cure you of many
things, and then he is prepared by
training to locate all kind of pains and
aches, and then send the stuff right to
the Bpot that will do the work. I have
told you about him before. His wife
has been at work right by his side, but
she has failed in health, and for that
and other reasons the Park Sanitarium
has been elosed for two months, hut
will open the last .of February orcarly
in March, and already there are many
applications for a place to be treated.
Dr. Conrad ia right now looking after
the sick, but ho is not treating them
at his place yet.
"When this old engine backed up, he
met mo at tho door and told me that
he was not receiving any patients, be
cause his wife was sick but I told him
I was too, and could not leave. He
looked at me and then invited me in,
and whenoaee in I remained -inside.
Once inside he ushered me into his
examination room. .1 "wanted to tell
him what Ineeded in the way of -medicine.
I told him what the suffering
was and what would reach it, but he
said "Before I can give you any medi
cine, I must locate the eanse." He got
a big baj like thing, and put it around
my left arm, then attached to it a
dock, and told me something.
Tien he got aim some little rubber
things, and ct am ear and got a lit

think of a man who can hear things
talking inside of you, and, then
upset their plans. I think he roust of
heard one of them things say that he
was going to get my goat, but ho de
cided to fool him.
After ono night, I was feeling like
another man, for Dr. Conrad had list
ened to the plans of the germs, and ho
fooled them. Idon't know where such
a man came from, but I do know that
I am getting better. It is a great
thing that this race has mado such a
wonderful progress in this world. May

Just as soon as the Sanitarium is

about it. , Things nrc getting in good

I hope to be able to havo many things
to say to you soon.
Since I have been here, I have had
letters and telegrams from every way.
Prof. Aaron E. Malonc, has wired mc,
offering his strviee, and telling me to
come right on to St. Louis, and while
he was to go away, he would defer his
trip to look after me. That is what I
call a friend.
Heaven is my home, hut I am not
homo sick. I want to hero express my
thanks to all my friends from time to
time who have looked after mc, and
who are willing to do so. It is only a
question of knowing my needs and
they will supply them. Dr. G. A. Ed
wards, President of Kittrell College,
Kittrell, N. C, sent mc a letter, and in
it ho had something that would get
lemonade or something else good.
I note that lynching continues to go
on in this country. I want to sec the
time come when there will be a halt
called. I am keeping my eye on Mr.
Harding, our President, and I want to
see what steps ho is going to take.
We are all sorry that Governor Bickctt
has retired from the Governor of North
Carolina. lie is a great man, and I
feel that North Carolina will recognize
his worth to the state and send him to
the United States Senate. Ho is a
man, every inch of him, and such a
man I would not regret seeing Presi

have Senator Harding now and he will
have to abide his time.
I think I will be discharged this

For the Custody of a, Colored Boy He
Reared Wins Case Against
Trenton, N. J. White and colored
people from Mt. Holly crowded the
Court of Chancery to hear the un
usual case of a white man in an ap
peal for custody of a little colored
boy whom he had cared for as a son
since infancy. His appeal was suc
cessful and the boy will be taken
from, his colored parents and given
over to the care of the man who
acted as his guardian almost his en
tire life George Tomlinson, a
paiqter, of Mt Holly, about 30 years
ago married a young colored woman
and they have had four chldren, all
girls. Tomlinson desired a little boy
a'nd when, about ten years ago, Har
vey Still was arrested and his wife
ran away, leaving a baby boy six
months old with no one to care for
him, a neighbor took him to the Tom
linson home, where he has since lived
and has come to be regarded as on
of the family. The Stills some time
ago became reunited and decided they
would like to have their son, now ten
years old, living with them. Tomlin
son, however, refused to consider
parting with the youngster and his
parents accordingly had recourse to
legal proceedings. The fight between
the Tomlinsons and the Stills for the
boy 'has aroused intense interest in
Mt. Holly, and sympathy generally
has been with Tomlinson, a man of
50 years, who enjoys a good rcputa
tion in the "town. Tomlinson will
immediately begin efforts to recover
the custody of the Colored boy and
will go to New York and employ de
tectives to aid him in his search.

Its wearer, for Immediately after the
question: "What shall I wear?" comes
the all Important one of the choice of
color. What use is color without the
right color, tone or shade or combina

choose color for becomlngness only,
and yet, though a color be actually un

Colors are no longer chosen ac
cording to age as our mothers and
grandmothers were prone to do. No
color limit, no bard and fast rules
of color before and after thirty In this
age and era! On the contrary, the
range Is unlimited and ever varying.
The necessary thing Is to know your
type and then to know color as ap
plied to yourself. Whereas the un
sophisticated girl chooses bright
colors that please her eye, the so
phisticated one chooses colors that
match her eyes or hair. A French
couturlere suggested that one should
match one's eyes In the evening shades
and one's hair in the daytime. This
is a wise and a safe rule. There
are those of us, however, who would
go about eternally clad in sober
browns if we followed this rule, and
for those we would put down the law
of harmony In contrast and what rule
was made not to be broken?

Gay Colorings Promise to Fea

Tomato Red Is Given as One of the

been given the center of the stage for
the winter season, are even now being
replaced by more brilliant ones for
spring, according to a fashion author

bright particular spots in the offering.
Red having been neglected for years,
has quite suddenly become a most Im

blouse black expresses Itself In satin,
