A new note In footwear Is a low

which big city shops report as a "best

In a successful musical comedy. The

The favorite for street wear seems
to be this low-heeled model In patent
leather. The fringed tongue, which
originally was used only on brogues,
has been adopted for afternoon and
evening wear. White kid oxfords with
French heels are shown with the
fringed tongue, and the latest adapta
tion is seen In a black satin slipper
with a solid black satin piece, the
ends of which are fringed with cut
steel beads. These are items that are

From abroad come interesting Ideas
of the exploitation of the black and
white voue in the neckwear field for
the coming season. Organdie is still
the chief fabric medium, and touches
of black are given by means of black
organdie appliques usually In straight
narrow bands ns often as edging, and
by chainstitch embroidery In black.
Gauntlets continue to be In the glove

as well as in a wide range of fan

Indians Have Curious Numeration.
The Indians of Guiann have a curi
ous 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 and first finger" ;
seven, a "hand and 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."
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 Magazine. 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

NEW SHADE OF RED IN PARIS
Name in Doubt, But May Be "Pill"
or "Pillar" Cardinal With
Dash of Pink.
Ts 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 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 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. Yoo
will be surprised to find how much
longer the rubber will last
The taffeta evening frock with th
taffeta wrap to match Is worn much
by young women this season. One
finds the skirts of the frocks quite full
and not too short, caplike sleeves and
a touch of ribbon flower somewhere
Fortunes Left to Pets.
Sometimes cats fare very well ai
beneficiaries under wills. It was a
Parisian woman, a few years ng. 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 numerous
Instances fortunes have been left to
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 light sometimes 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 la the air. Their ap
parent divergence Is an effect of per
spective. The phenomenon Is popularly
described ns "the sun drawing water";
Bailors speak 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 Is
always more danger of getting too lit
tle 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
river there grows narrow and from
Its deep waters rises the bold height
on which the ancient city stands. The
French-Canadian still pronounces the
