Mode Large and Small
Striking and nnnsnal color combina
tions are appearing la spring and sum
mer clothes. Fashions cannot remain
stationary. It Is all very well to talk
about finding the most becoming style
and adhering to It, observes a fashion
authority, but we must have a change
In dress as In everything else. If each
woman held continuously to the type
most becoming to her our clothes
would become as uninteresting as
man's. Individuality would disappear.
We would not only lose interest In
dress, but likewise -lose Interest In
making ourselves appear at our best
at au times.
The psychology of clothes. Is ex
tremely Interesting, and much deeper
than Is -cenernllv miPDOsed. A crow
ing tendency toward simplicity of cut
In dress has been very marked. The
simple styles are. preferred to any
others at the present time.
From among the numberless types
that designers have attempted to
launch In order to create a demand
for something new, which . always
stimulates business, the woman who
buys and who -eventually decides the
fashions has unfalteringly chosen the
straightllne dress, with nothing new
about It as far as silhouette Is con

There must Inevitably come a day
when this will pass from the fore
ground of-fashions unless the history
of clothes' is to be absolutely revolu

that day Is still In the distance.
.Since" dressmakers 'have been com
pelled by popular demand to hold a
silhouette In vogue, for some time
they .have resorted to embroideries
and Tery lavish trimmings In order to
get new effects. They spared no effort
to make these beautiful and alluring.
Clothes were literally covered with
them. But beautiful as these embroid
eries .were, drawing; their Inspirations,
as they did, from the -art, both ancient
and-inodern, of many nations, they ran
a, swift and brief course. Embroid

to cover entire garments, as they did

IN KEPLY TO MRS. YARNER'S MOTIGfa FOH NEW
TRIAL? H. B. VARNER PRAYS THAT JUDGE-
WNT OF COURT STAND AND THAT MOTION
K DISMISSEDOPINIONS IN "PUBLIC PULSE"
FAVOR A NEW TRIAL-OTIZENS AROUSED.
Grecnboro, Ni. 0. Another chapter in
tho- vivid, colorful Tamer court -prd-eecaingswai
unraveled last week, -when
H. B. Turner filed in answer to his
wife' complaint, asHng-for a now trial
oa-tho gTmadsTthat several of the' jury
men haofbeon influenced against her by
utterances of one F. J. Thomas.
ATrs. Varner's "motion for a- now trial
was based -upon tho. facts that on the
afjernoon the verdict was Tendered,
G. C. Thomas, an automobile man and
brother of F. J. Thomas, a member of
the Varner juryr told him that Mr.
Vainer had stated that if tho jnry re
turned a. verdict of guilty, ho (Mr.
Varner). wonld purchase him an auto
mobile from him. G. C. Thomas is the

five members of the jury before tho
verdict was returned. For this reason,
and because of the fact that newly dis

Many "and varied havo been the opin

Almost without any -opposition, tho con

man of color T " This 'man argues that
what is sauce for thegoaso is saueo for

This is only a- iow of the numerous
answers which havo been sent' into the
papers by citizens who demand a now
trial, in order that the fair namo of
Southern iromanhood be not sullied.
Varner's answer makes denial of the
complaint, and prays that tho judg
ment of the court stand and that tho
motion for setting asido the verdict of
the jury be dismissed.
Tho answer goes into detail regard
ing the points covered in Mrs. Varner's
complaint and specifically denies the
allegations that I. J. Thomas was par
tial to the defendant. It also denies
that Deputy Marshal C. T. Boanc, who
was. in charge of the jurors, discussed

deplored the fact' that the samples
which be had Imported, and which
were oMlnen, could not be duplicated
foe a reasonable price unless cotton
goods were used. However, these at
tractive little handkerchiefs are very
easy to make, and the woman who Is
clever with her needle can add to her
store of them In but a few evenings.
They are best made of handkerchief
linen, nnd as remnants can be well
utilized In their making; no great ex
pense Is attached to them. The new

making them, two threads should be
drawn where the hemstitching would
ordinarily come, and In their place Is
drawn a heavier thread of a contrast

Everyone tries to be clever, to cul
tivate individuality nowadays, forget
ting to look Inwards first to see If
there Is anything of special original
ity to cultivate. A girl may. Indeed,
consider It good fortune If she finds
that there Isn't anything special, that
she will make Just the ordinary, nor
mal woman, with an Illogical fondness
for home, husband and children. It
Is really more original to be a domes
tic woman today than to be a pro
nounced specimen of any other type.
An Historic Forest
The historical associations connected
with the forest of Yallombrosa are
very interesting. It was founded la
the Twelfth century and given its
name which, literally translated,
meaas "Shadowed Valley,'- by Saint
Glorvannl Gaulberto, says Nelson
Courtlandt "Brown In the American
Forestry Magazine. It was founded
as a monastery and retreat for one of
the Benedictine order of monks, and
from its early Inception the monks
took great pride In caring for, cultt
vatlng and replanting the forests.
And That Is Not' Much.

Removing Paint From Wood.
t To rid room of bad odor give it a
coat of paint or varnish. If a dead
rat or mouse causes the trouble the
odor will Inst until the little creature
Is entirely dried up. Lye will take
off paint but would injure the wood,
for applying paint to later. Use a
paint remover bought at a paint -shop.
Chess vs. Checkers.
Chess appeals to mature minds, and
wood supplies most of the accoutre
ments with which it Is played. Some
of the best are of ebony and boxwood,
but very satisfactory games may be
played with yellow poplar, bass wood,
walnut maple and birch outfits, says
the American Forestry Magazine. The
same holds true on checkers, but that
game usually Is rated a little lower
than chess In scientific points, though
no less an authority than Edgar Allan
Poe holds that as a mental exercise
of the highest and purest sort check
era surpass chess.
