There Is every reason why a young
girl should strive to make herself At
tractive In appearance, says a fashion
critic in Good Housekeeping. The
trouble often is that her standard of
what' is attractive Is wrong. It is a
mistake to strive to be conspicuous,
while it is right to look charming,
neat and Inconspicuous. Cleanliness
and tidiness are two -great factors.

To be suitably dressed for. a given
occasion Is to be well dsessed. Upon
the kind of work depends the cos
tume. If most of the time Is spent
Indoors, tailored dresses are more be
coming than 'a shirtwaist and skirt.
If, on the other hand, the work Is o"ut

blouse now used, of the same shade
as the suit, has done away with the
bard line of demarcation between the
light waist anddark skirt, which
proved at all times unbecoming.
Whether a dress or suit; the secret of
smartness is simplicity of line and cut
Black, navy blue and brown are the
most suitable colors for business, for
they blend with their surroundings.

AKUUND &A1UN KOUGE, LA.. AT LIVE OAK,
Baton Song, Jjl I have had the
devil in mo as big as the White Houso
in Washington, D. O, and I am sure
you will not blame me when I tell you
the cause of this feeling, but then I do
Sot want you to "get angry, heneo I
shall tell you first of all some of the
good things through which I have
passed, and if I have tho time then I
will bring forth some of tho other
It is hard for man t.ounaentasd
man, and then some men como into tho
world to sever Ira -understood and they
pass right on through, whilo. others
spend so much timo in doing things for
others and blessing humanity that they
just are loved and understood by tho,
world. When the time comes that
every man will regard tho nghts of his
brother, and make him as happy as ho
wants to bo himself, then it trill be
that this world will bo worth while,
and all men will join that fellow in
Baying, "Behold how good and how
pleasant it is for brethren to dweU to
gether in unity.!'
Little by little wo find the white
man of tho South coming to himself
and at the samo time having that feel
ing for his brother in black,, making
it possible for him to find himself
through tho mind and. heart culture I
rejoice to see this day so fast approach
and may it eontinno to tome.
If you wiU go back a few weeks,
you win find a letter in which I told
you about Southern University, and
perhaps not so much about the Uni
versity as I did about that speech
mado by Governor Parker, and what he
had to say, and a little more about
what ho was doing, for he is a brqad
experienced man on who stands for
his protection of all the subjects un
der him. He recommended for the
school, and I mean Southern Univer
sity, $267,000 and tho bill passed
through without a question being asked
when they learned that it was the
recommendation of the Governor, and
in addition to this came $50,000 for the
erection of a school for the blind out
right here, and this .will be under tho
supervision of President J. S. Clark.
Out of the $267,000 appropriated
$67,000 will bo used to maintain the
school, while $200,000 will be put in
buildings, much needed. A building
for boys' industries, one for girls' in
dustries already provided for, and both
of them are now nearing completion,
then the dinning hall, is started and
will be ready for the next school ses
sion, and thero will bo a residence for
tho president, whieh is going to bo in
keeping with tho position filled, and
will Te comnlete in au instances.
Louisiana, is determined that oar peo
ple shall bo looked after in tho, future,
and whilo they have had only one lynch
ing in 18 months, the Governor has
declared that there must nqt bo an
other one daring his administration,
and we hope that the next one will
pick up where ho leaves off and take
it on to perfection.
Southern University is one of the in
stitutions in the South of which I am
proud, and" which is doing good" work.
I wish you could meet President J. 8.
Clark, who is .congenial and a good,
man. He has the proper idea of the
affairs of the world, and a high regard
for his fettow man. He is doing all In
his power to develop tho youth of his
jaee lor roannooa ana womuuioea

ho has gotten around him some strong
men and women.

SEASON OF TRIMS
Most Unusual Sorts of Decora
tions Are Featured.
Flowers From Dress Materials; Kids
and Suede Aid In Forming Sec
tional Bits of Ornamentation.
Apart from the lavish hand embroid
eries and machine-wrought decora
tions variously used for street and in
door garments of every kind, the sea
son's apparel stands apart by reason
of most unusual sorts of trimmings,
beads and applique work, notes a fash
ion writer In Fashionable Dress. For
Instance, a clever device of the French
designers Is the making of flowers
from dress, materials. Soft silk crepe
or satin win be "mounted" upon a
background (sometimes rubberized) to
stiffen it, and then It win be cut and
fashioned 'Into flowers, petals, or con
ventional oddities to scatter over a
surface, or to place nt regular Inter
vals In meshes of a lace, or between
lines of beading or embroidery. Tiny
daisies or forget-me-nots are thus used
with a bead In the center through
which the flower Is sewn. Kid and
suede are used In similar ways, form
ing lines on belt, or almost solid sec
tional bits of ornamentation.
Feathers are used in embroidery on
lace or chiffon ; tiny pieces of coral re
semble melon seeds In shape, and are
used In many ways with other beads
or embroidery floss.
There Is a fancy for Introducing nar
row, loosely woven grosgraln ribbons
in. stripes and plaids, combined with
rows of colored stitching. A bright
rose coral ribbon is used In three-Inch
plaids, with stitching of the same
color on the bottom of a navy-blue
tricotlne dress. Ostrich flues are an-

WEAR HATS THAT FIT FACE
Young Girls Are Supposed to Favor
Millinery Which Has Expres
sion of Youth.
There Is none so powerful In the
mastery of fashion who can lay down
the law about hats for a class. The
young girl Is supposed to wear the
kind which expresses youth and avoid
the type worn by the older women.
This tradition Is gone by the board.
It keeps company with Davy Jones'
Locker and a million traditions of the
The debutante of this gay and pros
perous season wears on her head that
which looks well over her face. The
rule Is an excellent one to foUow
through life. It aids the old and the
young, the pretty and the plain.
The stiff sailor shape,. GIbsonlan In
Its severity. Is about the only kind
that Is hot popular. All the hats that
have cluttered fashion since the Idea
began of wearing formal coverings on
the bead have reappeared this sea
son. They present a bewUdering ar
ray. It Is true, but not an unpleasant
one. It Is distinctly comfortable to
find a wide limit to one's choice.
The tarn Is the most girlish shape,
and It persists In fashion. It has
ceased to hang over the back of the
collar In the Latin Quarter way. It
has plenty of fullness, which Is dis
posed to give breadth across the head.
For ornament there Is a broad spread
Egyptian design In some composition
in an Egyptian blue. This blue Is ad
mirable for debutantes.
The high-crowned hat that Is usually
difficult for the adult to wear goes
weU with the brilliant and unllned
youthful face. It has a slight brim
and a mass of flues swirling out from
the side. The young wear it In black
velvet without a touch of color.
The Persian turban brought Into
strong relief this winter by the suc
cess of "Mecca" and "Afgar," the lat
ter costumed by Paul Polret, Is the de
light of the girl who has a dash of the
adventuresome In her carriage, It
should not be worn by the timid type.
It is built In Oriental blue velvet and
covered with a latticework of small
pearls and whle crystals.
BEHOLD THE COLORFUL SHOE
Manufacturers' Displays of Spring
Footwear Include Riot of Colored
Kid and Fabric
Spring shoes are more elaborate
and porgeous than ever before, al
though such a pedal state seems al
most Impossible in view of the con
fections of footgear that have tripped
about this past searon.
Shoe makers say that since, after
long years In th attempt, they have
convinced womankind, that shoes must
be as fragllely beautiful as gown or
hat, they do not Intend any slump In
their propaganda. Thus, spring foot
wear showings In manufacturers' dis
play rooms are a riot of colored kid
and fabric, metal, jewels, ribbons and
Gray seems to be the big choice In
color, as shoes follow suit and coat
and blue and gray Is the big color
feature In outer raiment for spring.
There are many copper and red
browns, however, a few blacks and
midnight blues, and the usual novelty
Trimmings run rampant. A swirl of
patterned perforations with an under
lay of contrasting color and fabric Is
the big trimmings feature. For in
stance, n pair of bronze kid colonial
pumps have an Inch-wide band of oval
perforations . about the entire shoe.
White kid Is used as the underlay and
white velvet bows flank the straps
upon the tongue.
The revere effect Is another new
note In footwear. This style Is shown
1n blue kid pumps, piped In white kid,
with white straps that disappear un
der the turnback revere.
Gray suede perforated with a wide
range of patterns and underlaid with
black patent leather is a style much
In the foreground, and black patent
leather trimmed with gay scarlet pip
ings of velvet, sarin, or kid. Is anoth
er reigning novelty.
SPRING BLOUSE WITH COLLAR
Large pink roses aid In making this
blouse cheerful for first spring wear.
The "boytah cellar has a youthfully be
coming ue el black moire ribbon.
Made of Lace.
A bewitching style combines haad-
jome Venetian lace and crepe satin,
