Voung Girls Are Wearing This Model

A new note in footwear is a low
square leather heel for street wear,
which bis city shops report as a "best
seller." This fashion is said to be in
spired by the low-heeled slippers worn
in a successful musical comedy. The
young girls are wearing the low
heeled model for dancing, in satin to
match their gowns; a touch of the

fringed tongue, and the latest adaptu

of the exploitation of the black and

by chainstitch embroidery In black.

Indians Have Curious Numeration.
The Indians of Uuliina have a curl
dus system of numeration. They count
oy the hand and its four fingers. Thus,
when they reach five. Instead of say
ing so. they call It a "hand. Six Is
therefore a "hand nnd first finger";
seven, a "hand ami second finger" Ten
Is "two hands." But 20. instead of be
ing "four hands." Is a "man." Forty
Is "two men." and thus they go on by
twenties. Forty-six Is expressed as
"two men. a hand and first finger."

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 orlginnl. Is frequently heard. The
Parisians are In doubt. Over there
they ask whether the Americans ued
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, nnmed for the post boxes of
Paris, which are not the vermilion red
tliat we sometimes see on iron In this
"Cardinal with a dash of pink"
seems to be a fair description of this
very bright red shade, although the
pill" or pillar box red that Is used In
millinery Is said to have Just a hint
of the fuchsia tone in it.
This exquisite new red which Is
neither cerise nor flame, but something
of both Is the newest color to whlth
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. Yon
will be surprised to find how much
longer the rubber will last

Arrow Deadly as Bullet.
A mounted Indian or white man
with bow and arrows sometimes could
kill more buffaloes than a man could
kill with a rifle, says the American
Forestry Mngazine. At close range
the arrow was as deadly as the bullet,
it made less noise, and arrows could
be discharged three or four times as
rapidly as bullets from muzzle-loading
Fortunes Left to Pets.

beneficiaries under wills. It was a
Parisian unman, a few years ago. whe
left 10.000 francs to her cat. On I 5
death the money was to be spent on
elementary schools. The feline has
since died and the money distributed
according to direct kns. In numerous
instances fortunes hne been left to
found homes for cats and dogs. Some
times these wills have been dictuted
by love of animals, while In others
alas, they have been written merelj
for the purpose of "getting even" with
"Crepuscular" Sun Rays.
The beams of light bometinies seen
radiating from the sun when not far
from the 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

described as "the sun drawing water";
sailors speak of the "sun's backstays,"
while Homer wrote of the "rosy
Care of Geraniums.
Geraniums should lie kept moist, but
should not be given too much water
at a time. They need a srnny 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 is
always more danger of getting too lit
tie than too much.
Tit for Tat.
When Lord Randolph Churchill vis
ited the diamond fields of South Africa
he Is said to have exclaimed after
looking at some diamonds: "And all
for the vanity of women." A lady who
beard the remark added: "And the
depravity of men."

The Indians called a strait "Rebec
