Capes arc made of oblongs of silk
fabrics of some sort, bordered along
one long nnd two short edges with
fringe as wide as the cape Itself.
This Is really a cross between a cape
and a scarf, for It Is wrapped about

the chest. A smart cape of this sort
Is made of black tricot, lined with
gray chiffon, and with heavy gray
NEW SHADE OF RED IN PARIS
Name in Doubt, But May Be "Pill"
or "Pillar" Cardinal With
Dash of Pink.
"Is it pill box or pillar box?" The
question refers to the bright red shade
that Is being much exploited.
Pillar box Is correct volunteers a
writer in Women's Wear, although the
shorter term, probably a corruption of
the original, is frequently heard. The
Parisians are In doubt. Over there
they ask whether the Americans used
a pill box of characteristic red shade,
evidently believing that the word had
Its origin here.
The term "pillar box red" Is said to
have been coined by an American silk
buyer, named for the post boxes of.
Paris, which are not the vermilion red
that we sometimes see on Iron In this
"Cardinal with a dnsh of pink"
seems to be a fair description of this j
very bright red shade, although the)
pill or pillar lox red that is used in:
millinery is said to have Just a hint
of the fuchsia tune in it.
This exquisite new red which isi
neither cerise nor flame, but something
of both Is the newest color to which
Paris gives her favor.
Rubbers wear out more quickly at
the heels than In any other parts. To
prevent this, cut heavy cardboard to
exactly fit the heel and place them
there when the rubber Is new. You
will be surprised to find how much
longer the rubber will last.
The taffeta evening frock with the
taffeta wrap to match Is worn much
by young women this season. One
finds the skirts of the frocks quite ful!
and not too short, caplike sleeves and
a touch of ribbon flower somewhere
Fortunes Left to Pets.
Sometimes oats fare very well ai
beneficiaries under wills. It was a
Parisian woman, a few years ago, whe
left 10.000 francs to her cat. On I-s
death the money was to be spent on
elementary schools. The feline has
since died and the money distributed
according to directions. In npmerous
Instances fortunes have been left tc
found homes for cats and dogs. Some
times these wills have been dictated
by love of animals, while in others.
alas, they have been written merely
for the purpose of "getting even" with
"Crepuscular" Sun Rays.
The beams of llcht sometimes seen
radiating from the sun when not far
irom ine horizon are called "crepuscu
lar rays." They are due to rays of
light passing through breaks In the
clouds and made visible by dust or fine
drops of water in the air. Their ap
parent divergence Is an effect of per
tpectlve. The phenomenon Is popularly
described as "the sun drawing water";
sailors sneak of the "sun's backstays."
while Homer wrote of the "rosy
Care of Geraniums.
Geraniums should be kept moist, but
should not be given too much water
at a time. They need a sunny win
dow. The plants should be kept In a
fairly even temperature, and It should
be borne In mind that they must have
plenty of air, for they won't thrive In
a "stuffy" room. Light and sun are
necessary for all plants, and there la
always more danger of getting too lit
tie than too much.
Indian Name of Quaint Old City.
The Indians called a strait "Kebec;"
and the name was given to the site
of the present city of Quebec from
the peculiar configuration of the St
Lawrence river at that point, for the
rlTer there grows narrow and from
Its deep waters rises the bold height
on which the ancient dty stands. The
French-Canadian still pronounces the
