She Wanted Six lilts For Iler Hog and

I was standing at the end of the depot
platform, when a little old woman drove up
with an ox harnebsed to a cart.sajs the
Detroit Free Press, and, handing the rope
linos to a little colorod boy who was loafing
around, she camu up the steps and asked.
"Do you own this railroad, sail?"
"No, ma'am, I don't."
"Is tho critter around yore who owns
tliis yere railroad?"
"There's a critter inside there, but l"
think he's only employed by the man who
owns the road."
"Stranger," she said, arter looking me
over, "will yo back a lono widder to git
"How back you?"
"Tuts yero lauroad has run over one o' my
hogs and won't pay fur him. I've come

Gowns That Look Cool.
The sajing, "Appearances often de
ceive," is a platitude which applies to
dress more than any other branch of art.
din this connection it is the decever her
self who Is often most deceived A dress
that looks cool to those outside it usually
feels cool to the woman inside it This is
why dotted Swiss and grass cloth are
worn so much this summer As a matter of
fact dotted Swiss is not a bit cooler than
batiste, but it looks -o, and that settles the
question Plain white dotted Swiss has
been n orn 60 much that it i as growing mo
notorious, and it is now so vaucd that one
does not iecogni7e all the varieties at first
glance. It comes in colors, pink, blue,
ecru, etc Other varieties have plain
w bite grounds, with pink or blue or yellow
dots A new kind of gras; cloth is on the
market' It has dots like dotted Swiss
and le a great favorite because it com
bines the beauties of two favorite dress
materials grass cloth and dotted Swiss.
Cross-barred dotted Swiss is another In
novation. Tho cross bars are usually of
some terra cotta or dull red shade, and the
material is much used for shirt waists. A
stylish combination for a shirt Avaist is
dotted Swiss and white linen collar and
Sensible Shoes of the Season.
How is miladi going to get into her
dainty dancing slippers next winter if she
goes about m wide-toed, sensible higli
walking boots all summer? That is just
what she lt now doing, and the same high
boots, reaching half way to the knees, are
immensely becoming Her foot looks as
tmy as can bs, for all the shoe is twice the
size of the dancing slipper, or seems so; or
is It that women are becoming wiser in
their judgment of pretty feet? String
colored shoes, with stockings to match,
are worn with all light dresses, as tan and
black have been in past seasons Linen
color shoes wear very well and, since cus
tom admits it, have ceased to look
dingy, even if worn with pure white
dresses, as they often are.
