BRIGHT DRESSES FOR WINTER
Gay and Pretty Costumes Add an Air
of Cheerfulness on the
As the winter season advances,
brighter and prettier are the dresses
that are worn, which Is as It should
be. A pretty bright costume Is cheer
ing on a dull gray day. For Instance,
an attractive brown taffeta dress, with
a .tucked vest of the same fabric. Is
made with an eton effect and a belt
of bright-colored ribbon. A blue taf
feta dress" has a waist which suggests
a basque, with seams piped In silk. It
Is slightly shirred In at the waist
line to adapt it to a girlish figure.
Red wool Is used to outline the neck.
The skirt has six bias bands, which
are sewed around at the top, but each
band Is left loose at the lower edge,
which adds grace to the skirt. This
dress would be pretty made In navy
Another blue silk dress Is made
with a round yoke of navy blue georg
ette crepe, which extends as a band
across each shoulder and down the
tops of the sleeves. This georgette
trimming Is outlined along the edges
with bright green silk machine stitch
ing. A dress which combines brown vel
vet and brown wool jersey has an
accordion-pleated skirt of the latter
worn with a hip-length jacket of
brown velvet edged with wool cord In
orange tones. The same wool cord
edge forms buttonholes for wool but
tons of orange color. -This overblouso
has set-In sleeves of the velvet.
A dress of blue velvet and satin Is
trimmed with touches of blue wool
embroidery. Pockets on the skirt
have thistles or corn flowers of blue
clipped wool used with green wool
NEW NET AND LACE DRESSES
Embroidered In Color, Made Over
Contrasting Foundations, Both
Youthful and Attractive.
In their effort to add further nov
elty to the lace idea the Paris dress
makers launched strange kinds of com-
Lblnatlons. For Instance, blue serge
dresses are trimmed with blue lace,
usually in an opposing shade of brie.
as navy blue serge with roynj nine
lace. Dark green velvets are com
bined with green lace, rust-colored
brocades with rust lace, and so on
through numerous combinations the
clever Paris maker varies the lace
as well as lace dresses are
made In simple chenilse effects.
Straightline dresses of white net em
broidered In color and made over con
trasting foundations are both youth
ful and attractive.
One of Cherult's -big successes has
been an orange lace dress. Madeleine
et .Madeleine have repeated many
times a model made In dark bottle
green lace, -and Callot SoeurK consid
er their rust-color lnces the most
fashionable offering of the season.

CHARLES E. STUMP. THE TRAVELING CORRESPOND-
. ENT FOR THE BROAD AX, HAS BEEN RESTORED
TO GOOD HEALTH AGAIN AND THE PAST WEEK
HE HAS BEEN VISITING SHREVEORT, UW
AND OTHER POINTS IN THE EXTREME SOUTH
" Bhrcvcport, La. Is lynching going to
stop iff this country! Is the wnitc man
going to say to the civilized world- that
he is a failure as a preserver of law!
Wo went way over in France and left
some of oar best men over there in
order to cheek brutality and now what
rhould be done at home!
I am not fault finding this week,
but there are just some questions in
my mmu tbat I cannot answer mem
myself, and I would like Jo have them
answered in tome way. To pick up the
paper and see where a man has been
barbacued, another lynched, and an
other shot down, it is heart touching,
anil if a fellow was far from God and
had his mind off of Jesus Christ, ho
would just cuss and cuss until cussing
would take down its sign. But I am
thankful that I stick close to the
throne, and will have to do so for some
time to come, for I was so near the
end of my trail until I got in the hand
of Dr. Conrad, that I will just have to
spend lots of my time praising and
thanking God. The devil is around
and about me as big as the white house
Speaking of the white house, Senator
Warren G. Harding will move there
next month, aud we aTe looking for
ward to his going with pleasure. Wc
helped him to get the biggest vote that
man has ever received since wc left
British rule. I have faith in him, and
his party has spoken out on lynching,
and now that they have the power, let
her go. Wc are not looking for too
much, but wc do want that which is
reasonable, and just. He can take a
stand as bold as that of Governor
Bickett, of North Carolina, who is a
Democrat, and Governor Morrow of
Kentucky, a Republican.
Speaking of Democrats, I am re
minded that there are some things
about them that I admire to the core.
They arc not hypocrits when it comes
to me, but speak right out. When
lVesident Wilson, went to the White
House, he showed that he admired our
people, that ho was our friend, and he
did not fail to show it. Now just let
me name a few of the ways W. H.
Lewis, was an assistant attorney gen
eral, and the President thought he was
working too hard and was entitled to a
rest, and told him to take a rest. He
told Mr. Napier, the same thing; then
he told Balph Tyler to rest, and said
about as much to Henry Lincoln John
son, and he has been told himself now
to take a rest from his labors. He will
not retire a popular man, and the rea
son I am not Jierc to say this week.
He may find him a plaee yet in the
League of Natoins, but let us wait and
sec. He will remain in Washington.
.For my ieople, I-am not ak'mg for
this appointment or tha apKintinent,
but I dp want that lynching shall have
a black eye aud that it be, consigned
to hell and put in charge of some of
thos.e who advocated it and are now
serving the devil. But Jet me not get
off and say hellish things. -Life is too
I have not heard from Berry O 'Kelly
this year. I hope he is not sick, and

saving my money in order that I may

ear beans that I may hear good. I
want to tell you many things.

day with one of the greatest scnooi
men in this country, iTot t w.
Hughes, supervisor of the schools of
my people in that city, and a man or
learning and education 5nd influence.
Right by his ide is his wife, and she
is a Fisk graduate, and a worker in
the school roonu She is a womanof
much learning, and a worker. I met
the principal of the high school who is
a jnan "who knows his business, rte
was there as busy as could be getting
in order the new promotions, those
who had been put up from one degree
to another one.
Returning to the eiry, I made a trip
to the high school of Muskogee, -also
to the Midland Valley snps ""
but of our "people are employed, ties
I iflde it to Fort Smith, visited the
school there. It is a great sight to see
jour young .people striving to gci an
education. It means so much to get an
education, and be able to get with the
thinkers. They -let me come in with
out, but just how long they are going
to keep this up I am not prepared to
tell for I can feel a chill at times when
I am. a little out of my class, I still
strive to use big sounds and look
wise. I can make them take notice.
For instance while in Tuba, I wanted
to say something big to Mrs. Hughes.
I said, "liturcmul sintelatumuk tasilo
lukcll sositolitgramum. She just looked
wise without trying to answer, but she
seemed to say to herself "Youmusus
beus a fooulum straightus." I don't
know whether she said it or not. but

I made it to Terkansas, found Mrs,

nurse me. and a letter from Mrs. E. L.
Stewart, way up in Chicago, says that
her suit case was packed and she wns
getting ready to make to Guthrie to
help Dr. Conrad fight the disease
germs, and I think she meant every
word of it. I tell you I am there.
I must bring this letter to a stop. If
you desire to write to me. send your
letter to 2S13 Thomas avenue, Dallas,
I have not heard from. Mrs. Carrie
A. Tuggle for a long-time. In tjis city
I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs.
Katie Miller, whose husband is at the
head of a large show on the stage. He
is doing good work. But why mention
Mrs. Miller? She is not on the stagtf,
but she looks- after the trunks of her
husband, his clothes and the like. She
is the daughter of Rev. Henry Allen
Boyd, of Nashville, Tenn., assistant sec
retary of the N. B. P. B., president of
a bank, and was accompanied by his
wife and daughter to Japan. When
Kattie returned from Japan, she
thought it a good time to become a
wife and married the man she loved,
nnd said that she was really happy.

THE FOUR-SEASON HAT IDEA
According to Plan. Women Are to Be
Educated in Wearing Headgear
Suitable to the Time.
The seasons in hats Jiave done more
than overlap, as a matter of- fact.
They have been so Juggled that women
have found theiueles wearing straw,
flower trimmed hats In January and
fur trimmed and heavy velvet -rhi-peaux
during the sweltering days ol
According lo plnn. women will be
gradually educated to the four-seaon
Idea, wearing dainty lints tbat are sug
gestive of spring during the brief but
delightful period: 'flower trimmed,
filmy hats during the summer months
and as the cooler weather comes on
they will gradually change the char
acter of their headgear so that fur
and fur frlmmed hats' will actually
be seen only when fur wraps and fur
trimmqd sulls and coats are comfort
The hat entirely wf fur Is a favorite
again this winter, but the fabric and
fur combination, or the fabric hat.
with a mere touch of fur In 16 trim-
-ming Is made popular.
Fixing Stocking "Runs."
Here Is a, satisfactory method for
repairing runs" which work such
havoc- with stocking. Use a fine cro
tchet hook, pick -up the dropped stitch.
draw the next loop through It and con
tinue the length of the run, picking up
every stitch or thread In rum and
drawing It through the stitch on the
needle. At the end fasten securely
with needle and thread. In case of
lrlde run. where two or more
stitches hate been dropped, take each
stitch and work In a straight line. If
carefully done the mdidlng will .not
be noticeable and the stocking -will
h given a new -lease of life. It Is
batter to take the run as soon as yon
s It has started -
COTTON IN FAVOR
Dress Fabrics for Summer Are
to Be Attractive.
Weaves Fine and Beautiful; Rich
Shades Are Taken From the
Silk Color Card.
The cotton dress fabrics for the
summer of 1921 represent one of the
most remarkable, achievements In the
history of the manufacturing of mate
rials. While the weaves are fine and
lieuctlful it Is not there that the real
achievement He4? It Is in the dyeing?
The shades are taken from the silk
color card and the same shades are
faithfully reproduced In cottons as
they appear in the mast beautiful of
silks and the silks have been mar
velous during the mt few yeara.
" dinicult to give you nn I
If N dlfllrtilt to give you nn Idea of
organdie alone enmes In 63 shades,
ranging froHl the idlest tints to deep
colors, AH the new red. brown and
orange tones, so much favored In the
smartest of winter garments, are seen
In the cotton materials.
Next to the color comes the weave.
There are sheer organdies entirely new
In pattern and weave. Some come In
fancy checks, the checks being In dif
ferent degrees of thickness, but the
whole very sheer. Brocaded organ
dies are In the patterns of the hand
somest silks of the present day and
Dronstltrh voiles In myriads of
beautiful shades p being effectively
worked out In copies of French lingerie
frocks that carry a great deal of hand
drawn work, thus making a simple
yet distinguished dress without the
expense of the handwork.
Among the family of English prints
Is a new arrival known as Tropical
English print. The cloth Itself Is soft,
much like a fine batiste, but beautiful,
ly printed, a Its name Indicates. In
all the colors seen In a tropical land
scape or sunset. Some of the patterns
ahd colorings are a bit weird. It Is
true, hut these are overbalanced by
the many that are unusual without
being bizarre. Some are In old-fashioned
challls patterns that are cer
tain of success through the quaint
old-time appeal that they make.
Dotted swIss Is always a favorite
with the American woman, although
little used by the French, so, being
one of the most popular cotton fabrics
used In this country, great attention
has been paid to 't In regard to color.
There are wonderful henna shades,
snjiphlre blue, various shades of maize,
brown and most remrfi-kable reds.
THE "VAMP" HAT FOR SPRING
"The Vampire" is aptly applied to
this spring hat, a creation of enameled
straw, with chantilly lace and tassels

NEW FABRICS IN
Spring and Summer Materials
Not to Be Hidden by Trim
ming and Decoration.
SILKS ARE HOST NUMEROUS
Goods Promise to Be in very Ureat
Demand During Coming Months
for Daytime Wear Serges
That It Is Ihe fabric which inspires
the finished gown is a Miying which
receives fresh emphasis by n glimpse
kit the new materials for spring, as
yet but few of them have appeared lu
shop windows; they are yet on stock
shelves, waiting to make their bow
to the public. One look at the soft
ness and at the aried designs of the
new folds of fabric, and to the luiagl
natiou u whole panorama of spnng
gowns und summer frocks appears.
Already the deslguers. huve begun Jo-
create new dresses out of the rich
choice of material, und they will have
none of trimming and decoration. They
routine themselves to the charm of the I
fabric nnd the dresso Ihey he made
so far are Indeed worthy of the in
spiration that was their beginning.
For u long time, while the war was
on, we were forced to accept u more
or less limited stock of materials, hut
now from everywhere the materials
are pouring in thoe from foreign
parts being only an addition to those
which we in thN country lme ue
ceeded in cmrtlng. And then- Is little
to choose between those from abroad
and ours. Those of our own uiuke are
as beautiful us theirs, though the ones
that come from Kurope are extremely
tiuely woven and not to be equaled by
our more plentiful variety us far as
exqulsltenes- of workmanship Is con
cerned. Silks Most Fascinating.
The silks, iieriiups. are the nuM fas
cinutlug of all the new fhrii. for it
Is In the spring and summer that these
materials have their own best expres
sion. During these seasons any kind
oC a gown can be made of silk, not
only those for dress-up occasion but
those for street wear as well, and
tho'.e for morning and sports wear;
and now thut there hae been created
so many heavier weaves of ilk, thl
come Into the realm of suit materials
by common accord.
The silks tlirTt ran be u-ed for suits
or for tailored street costumes are
most numerous, which Indicates that
there will be a great ogue during the
coming months for daytime dressing
In thts material. There are the heavy
crepes and the tricotlnes. This year
some of the knitted fabrics have been
printed, and they take on a most illu
slve air by reason of this ucwer treat
ment. There are the sport weaves
among which "Tally-ho" is one. that Is
being featured extensively. It Is a sort
of crepey ground, with patterns In
plaid's and "stripes made from threads
of artificial silk, which give the fabric
an Interesting variety. One particular
feature of this silk, and It Is the case
with many others of the newer weaves.
Is that the stripes run from selvage
to selvage, the material being forty
Inches wide. By reason of this little
trick the material lends Itself most
gracefully to the pleatlugs of various
sorts that have been so popular for
skirts of this character.
The Pussywillow fabrics have been
printed-wlth borders that are most in
teresting, "and these borders have the
same happy way of running atong one
selvage, so that they can be used for
the trimmings of the hems of skirts
as well ns incorporated Into the bod
Ices of the summer frocks.'
Fabric Called TTiIsfiedu.''
There Is a lovely silk fabric called
thlatledu." It comes in all the pastel
shades, yellows and blues and pinks,
that are Just the things for street suits
and for daytime dresses. This fabric,
while It Is all silk, has very much the
look of a woolen homespun. It Is
lighter In weight, of course, but It has
Coloring Arc-Lamp Globes.
The purple color of arc-lamp globes

glass. The manganese la "used to cqoi
tenet the greenish color which comes
from ferrous salts In the glass, but the
action of light on the manganese only
substitutes a purple coloration for

there are veritable holes between the

and then for a change some of it Is

supposed, dlsupjiears Into the great

be the fashionable silk inaterinls for
.the coming sea-on and so we are pre
sented with nil sorts and varieties or
silks In this particular weave. Crepe
snttn is one of the most popular, ami
t Is most often made up wrong side
out or with the crepey side exposed
to view Of course this ogue makes
the crepey side the rmht side, though
heretofore it has been considered Just
the opposite. It makes no difference
shiny or dull the fabric Is one to
lie inareled over and wondered at,
for tt holds great possibilities for the
dressmaker who wishes to combine It
with one of the woolen materials or
to make It up Into a frock by Itself.
And gray in crepe Is still the good
color. There can be none more becom
ing, and tunny will welcome this re
iteration of the gray note. It was
good toward the end of last summer.
It has held Its own through all the
winter, aud It certainly will be very
popular for spring wear In silk ns well
as In other fabrics.
Fascinating Printed Designs.
Some of the creiies show printed de
signs In the most fascinating figures
and patterns. This is new idea
to print upon erepe. as usually lids
sort of silk wns seen only in the sur
faces that were more or less plain and
smooth in finish. The -ree prints are
beautiful in themselves and doubtless
will make up into frocks destined for
a long and interesting career.
Serges for spring wear are as good

The dye and weaxe of this fabric are
being perfected so that a good serge
nowadays lusts much better limn for

to be admired.
The soft, I eht weight duvetyns are

the spring suits aud dresses. This is

Homespun In wool Is losing none of
the favor which bus been shown to It
during the present season. It. has
proved Its right to distinction. The
suits made from It hold their shapev
marvelously that Is when the weave -Is
authentic homespun. So much can
