This question is more easily asked

DAY OF FUR COLLAR GONE
?Embroidered Linen or Net Hag Taken
, Its Place as the Sun's Rays Are
i Becoming Warmer.
One of the positive signs of warmer
i weather is the replacing of the fur
? collar on the coat with one of em
ibroidered linen or net. This season
?shows a marked preference for the
?latter and many handsome designs
yare displayed at the needlework
i shops. The clever woman can dupll
<cate these at home with little trou
ble or expense.
Purchase a quantity of plain white
tnet of a proper weight; not too coarse
?nor too fine.
. The beBt result is obtained when
^embroidering net, by stamping the
j design on lawn and carefully basting
jthe net over it. The pattern will
?show plainly through both thicknesses
jof fabric, and when you have com
pleted the entire design, cut away
jthe lawn. This leaves the design
j?rmly worked on the net alone.
To the scalloped edge whipstitch an
Jedging of IriBh crochet, cluny or val
?eadeun es lace.
i Two finely plaited, graduated frills
are made of the net and edged with
lace. These are joined to the front
?of the collar for the purpose of cover

A GOOD LETTER
The following letter from HOD.
Fitz Hugh McMaster, Insurance
Commissioner, is greatly apprecia
I ted by the officers, stockholders and
policy holders of the first legal re
?rve Life Insurance Company ever
v-rganized in South Carolina.
Columbia S. C.,
May 14, 1913.
Mr. T. O. Lawton, Manager,
Southeastern Life Insurance Co.,
Greenville, S. C.
I had occasion recently to review
in part the progress of insurance
since I nave been Insurance Com
I was struck with the fact that,
when I became Insurance Commis
sioner, the Southeastern Life had
total assets of about $34,000. It
has now assets of abot t $380,000,
practically increasing 200 per cent.
in four years.
When I realize that all ol these
assets are invested in South Caro
lina securities and that every dollar i
yon 6pend for officers' salaries and
expenses is spent in South Carolina,
I can but real.ze the excellent work
you are doing in South Carolina in
keeping this money in the State
which woaJd otherwise go beyond
its borders, part of it never to re
turn. The people of South Caro
lina should appreciate this fact.
(Signed ) P. H. McMaster,
(Note: Since the statement to]
Insurance department the assets j
have increased to $430,000.00.)

ESCAPING BY A HAIR
By MAURICE SMILEY.
It was no evidence of any special
shrewdness on my part that I knew
-what Wilson was watching the train
The papers were tull of the details
of Judson's last exploit The trick he
had turned on this particular occasion
was the lifting of a tray of diamonds
from the importing Arm of Couvier
The police had followed Judson
pretty sharply and I knew that Wil
son must have got some tip to the
effect that Judson was going to take
a train for a cooler habitat-most
probably the 9:40 for the west
Now, Wilson and I knew each other
by sight We had had a professional
rub or two on former occasions, and 1
knew with what I had to -deal.
It just happened that I saw him get
a telegram at the station office and
that gave me two ideas which I pro
ceeded to put into effect. One was to
Intercept the messenger boy attached
to the office, and for a quid pro quo
induce him to hand to Wilson this mes
sage, scribbled on a telegraph blank:
"Mr. Wilson: I forgot in my hurry
to copy the message just delivered to
yon. Kindly return it to me fer a
moment and I will hand it to you at
any time.-Mary Emerson, Operator."
i Five minutes later the boy handed
me the message Wilson had received.
"Anderson says Judson will take the
9:40 train for Chicago. Will wear a
long white beard.-Foley."
Foley was the chief. His dispatch
threw new light on the Judson tip. So
Anderson had turned against Judpon.
It happened that I was going to take
the 9:40 train myself, and I determin
ed to keep a sharp outlook for any
body with ? long white beard. I was
smooth shaven myself,
j Bat the second idea. It was ridicu
lously easy to write a message my
self, and my convenient messenger
friend for another quid pro quo
handed it to Wilson. My message ran
"Made a mistake. Judson will leave
on the 9:15 for Montreal.-Foley."
It was already 9:05 and Wilson had
barely time to catch the 9:15 train,
for he swallowed the spoon, hook and
With Wilson safely side-tracked, I
boarded my train.
"Message for Henry Wilson. Is Mr.
Wilson in this car?"
"Ah, yes, I guess that's for me," I
remarked, casually, reaching out my
hand for it as the conductor stopped
at my berth. Of course it was from
Foley. It read:
"Anderson . makes complete conSe?
sion. Says story of Jddson being di?
guised was a blind, He will, so far
as Anderson knows, be smooth shaven,
as be does not suspect he will be fol
lowed, but thinks he has sidetracked
ns. Williame is at Buffalo, and will
meet the train at Lee's Landing.
i The plot was thickening.
"How far are we from Lee's Land
ing, porter?" I inquired.
"Next stop, sir."
I started on another exhaustive In
spection of the car, but there was no
body there whom I thought Williame,
would be likely to spot as Judson.
I But there was a gentleman with a
long brown beard, sitting all alone in
one end of the car. A white beard
might be dyed overnight.
"Would you mind stepping into my
drawing room compartment, sir?" 1
said in a weak voice as 1 bent over
the brown-whi?kered gentlement.
"Certainly, sir," he replied, rising
and accompanying me to my drawing
room. Once the door was locked and
there was something doing in two min
"That's a very fine bunch of whisk
ers you have there, my friend," I said
fiercely, "and ] shall have to trouble
I you for them! Don't make any fuss
now and you won't get hurt!"
The sheer absurdity of my words
made him blink bewilderedly and be
fore he got through blinking I had him
tied hand and foot and two minutes
i later I had neatly snipped off hie
beautiful brown beard.
I had become suddenly alive to the
fact that a pair of whiskers wae
something that I needed in my busi
ness. 1 usually went provided with
spirit gum and other toilet accessories,
but I had neglected to grow a bunch
of side whiskers or provided myself
with a Bet of false ones.
"Lee's Landing!" shouted the brake
man, as I stepped out of the drawing
room to run plump into Williams,
whom I spotted instantly.
"He's in the drawing room there!"
I whispered hurriedly in Williams'
"Yes. This ls Wilson! I am detail
ed on another lay; that's why you
were wired to meet me. Grew these
over night Good lack."
Then half holding my whiskers with
my hand to keep them from falling
off, I pulled my hat down over my
eyeB and made my getaway.
It waBn't a very close shave for the
parson, but it was for me, all on ac
count of that traitor Anderson. I Just
escaped by a hair-that is, by a con
veniently large number of hairs, judi
