That Sunday School ClassI
Wishing to become acquainted with
the methods of her predecessor, a
young woman who taught a Sunday
school class fof the Hrt time asked
the group of bright-faced six-year-olds
what the lesson had been the previous
Sunday. Silence prevailed for a mo
ment Then a snub-nosed urchin
waved has hand frantically and .when
granted permission to speak answered:
It was about burning the bugs In the
church." Conversation with the former
teacher afterwards revealed that the
lesson had been "Burning IncenM In
Superstition Protects Spider.
There are traditions that hold thi
spider sacred. The French have
motto presaging bad luck for him who
kills a spider Jn the morning; and
the.se are old rhymes and warnings
that tho5e who wish to live and pros
per will snare the life of this anlrn
iris not an' Insect as most of us iiswj
to believe until entomologists In''-inei
us to the contrary.

Bulta Dark; Colors for Hate; Waist
line Four Inches Lower Than
If there Is any more delightful diver
sion for A hot summer day than specu
lating on winter styles the feminine
mind has not found It Fortunately
enough, observes a fashion correspond
ent, authentic Information has floated
in from fashion centers to give form
and color to wardrobe planning.
The thermometer never soared so
high that a woman could not be pleas
ant as she pictures herself In a new
fall suit cut on the latest lines. Lines,
you see, for there are three lengths
in new suit coats, the hip length coat
the finger tip length and the very long
coat The lines of the long coats are
as graceful as one could wish, often
deep revera extending almost to the
waistline give a decorative touch to
the new suit Then there is the very
long coat made with a long waistline,
bloused a bit, perhaps, and buttoned
itraight up the chin for the swathed
neck line In suits Is full of promise.
Skirts are ctralght, wide enough
to permit the wearer to walk comfort
ably and nine Inches from the floor
at the present The tailored suit will
hesitate a few months .before It de
cides to give In to the dictum of
longer skirts. Dresses have suc
cumbed, the suit will In time.
As to color the suits are dark blue
or black with an occasional variation
as the fabrics advance from the
various twill cords of autumn Into the
soft pile fabrics of winter
The hat lends the color. Flame
colored felt, or spark, if you like the
new term better, lovely grays and
soft shades of rose that defy a name
are "the firstlings of the season."
"Where Is the waistline In the new
coat dresses? Inquired a shopper. An
swers the buyer authoritatively,
"About four Inches lower than the
normal waistline; there the panels
begin to flutter and fly, 'for the
straight-line dreJias panels galore,
and a panel to fulfill Its mission must
drop below the hem of theskirt," so
the longer skirt was reconciled, for
you can compromise, you know, by a
short skirt and long panels and be
very smartly dressed. The yards and
yards of silk braid on just one of the
new dresses would make a love of
a kite string. ,
here's no half way place in sleeves,
either the frock lias them or It's
sleeveless. The long, flowing sleeve,
which ndds trace to a garment and
charm to nlnp out of every ten arms.
Is with ns, for unusual Is the arm
that is not better looking dad. In some
For., suits, coats and dresses 'the
sleeve' takes varied lines; the kimono
sleeve Is close-fitting at the armhole
and widens from the elbow to the
wrist Tlowlng sleeves are often
cuffed elaborately, which Is a -welcome
diange from the plain tight-fitting
variety. Or a sleeve may be
fashioned after the bishop's sleeve,
gathered Into a snug cuff at the wrist
Oh. yes. the sleeve Is coming In -for
real attention this reason.
St. Swithln Myth Disproved.
A record was kept from 1840 far
twenty years for the purpose of testing
the truth of the "popular belief that If
rain fell on St Swlthln's day It would
rain for forty days after. The result
of this test shows that the greatest
number of rainy days had occurred fas
these two decades In years whea MCy
Swlthln's day was, dry. -
