Musicians find the drum an unsatis

description of a drum the parchment
head of which Is loaded with an ad

a central circle. Around the edge a
second r.ng-sbaped membrane is se
cured and the effect of the loading is
to prodnre good harmonic overtones.

are Jaunty little affairs of fairly

at Just about the waistline, unbelted,

STYLE FOR EVENING GOWNS
CREPE DE CHINE IS POPULAR
Paris Mode, Permits of Broad Indi
vidualism In Selection of Gar
ments for Formal Wear.
From the spring openings in Paris
comes the report that the style for
evening gowns continues to be "eclec
tlque," which being Interpreted into
crude American slang means each fel
low for himself and each In his own
way. There Is much to be said In
favor of this, for It gives a large va
riety from which to make a choice
and it allows that trend toward indi
vidualism in dress to have full and
uninterrupted sway. The Parisian
designer this season. It seems, has ac
complished every manner of style and
has drawn for his Ideas upon every
source of inspiration.
Polret, for instance, has done a
great deal in the way of Spanish eve
ning gowns which show panniers bulg
ing out over the hips in many and
voluminous folds. A frequent decol
lete Is termed "The Empress Eu
genie," and when the sort of gown Is
cut very low, as It often Is, there are
delicate metal chains used to slip over
the shoulders and to bold the gown In
place. At this house, too. there is to
be seen another evening fashion which
discloses completely one shoulder and
which has a point of the draped fab
ric reaching over the other shoulder,
leaving the back quite free from cov
ering. Over the uncovered shoulder a
strap slips to hold the gown In place.
It Is the evening gown which was
best liked in Paris during the winter
season and which Poiret has seen fit
to repeat, as has also the house of
Madeleine et Madeleine.
Madeleine et Madeleine have a fas
cinating evening gown of metal bro
cade In Persian colorings. One arm
Is left entirely without a sleeve of
any sort and the other one Is covered
with ropes of pearls wound about to
form a sleeve tightly fitting and to
The Oriental Influence dominates
all of the gowns shown by Patou. The
robe called "Cleopatra' as its name
suggests. Is wholly Egyptian In char
acter. It has a belt of metal orna
ments set with carbuncles. Another
termed "Prlncesse Persane" Is of tulle
braided In gold. Interspersed wlfh
green and gold threads.

Fabric Strongly Featured In French
Capital and Is Expected to
Assert Sway Here.
Crepe de chine at present is one of
the most featured frock fabrics In the
French capital and undoubtedly It will
assert Its sway in this country. It Is
also one of the most durable of lingerie
materials and trimmed with point de
Paris, or Calais lace or tucked in the
more tailored modes fashions some of
the smartest of undergarments.
Crepe satin, radium, gros de Londre
and georgette are other fabrics, while
Carrickmacross, rose filet and Irish
crochet are laces in vogue as trim
mings. Besides white and flesh, such
shades as raspberry, neptune green,
honeydew and Jonquil are popular.
The Parisian is very partial to the
long chemise or princess slip. Some
of these are developed in georgette
with many rows of plaits, others are
trimmed with lace, filet and Calais,
the lace often being cascaded from
the hips and draping to the hem.
Plaited satin ribbon Is used to form
the bodice on, some of the newest slips,
the skirt txsually being of georgette
FASHION NOTES OF INTEREST
A fine black lace frock has a tunic
of black ostrich fringe.
Pokes and smart bow trimmed hats
are prominent in the spring showings.
Some of the new skirts shown In
Paris are only a Jflounce" fastened to
an elongated bodice.
Appliques of colored leather are
seen on pumps of patent leather.
Gray and "honeydew," a shade deep
er than apricot, is a smart combina
tion. While many drooping effects are
seen on the spring millinery, some ex
tremely high effects are also promi
nent. Reports from abroad acclaim the
deeply fringed shawl as the favored
Handkerchief draped panels are chic

Leather, lingerie and colored pique
are seen In French waistcoats ""
To Soften Skins.
There are two simple ways of soft
ening leather and raw skins. One Is
to rub In thoroughly neat's-foot OIL
The other Is to dissolve three ounces
of alum, seven ounces of salt aud one
and one-half ounces saleratus in suffi
cient hot rain water to saturate the
skin. When cool enough not to scald
the hands soak the skin in It for 12
hours; wring out and hang up to dry.
When dry repeat this opwntion two or
three times until the skin is sufficient
Freedom Is the word that Is many

trampling upon rights of anybody else
who chances to stand in their way.

How Kisses Came.
Of course It doesn't really matter
who Invented kissing but the legend
of the Grecian shepherdess who found
an opal on one of the hills near
Athens and, wishing to give it to a
young shepherd whose hands were oc
cupied, let him take It from her lips
with his own. Is one of many stories
which give Greece the honor of the
very first kiss.
Tuberculosis and Stomach.
Tuberculosis rarely attacks the
stomach, and the reason for this Is ex
plained by Dr. Wilhelm Baetzner of
Berlin In describing one case in Ber
liner Kllnlsche Wofchenschrlft He
says the gastric Juice, aided by the ac
tive movements of the stomach, kill
the germs of tuberculosis before they
get a chance to take hold.
Argentina Not a Paradise.
The distribution of rain seems to
be poorly managed in the Argentine;
if the country Is not suffering from
drought, it is upt to be complaining
of floods, or. In the warmer and more

No Room for the Incompetent.
Much of the work done In this world
has to be undone. Incompetency Is
the greatest drawback to progress. In
competents are the most costly mem

That's why there is always a premium
on brains and skill, which combine to
produce efficiency. Exchange.
In olden days there was a merchant
who would buy his stores !n the cheap
est market, load them Into a wagon,
and drive about the country, selling
where he could. He was known as a
chapman and the modern name Is de
rived from that word. As the mer
chant's chief stock in trade was a
Jovial personality the word chap has
long meant a Jolly fellow.
