-Tho plant of tho People's Hard Rub

jdolay In securing building material
nnii tho work has been retarded. At
the company's ofllco It was stated that
it' was not known Just when the fac

Messrs. Haber, Stoln and othcis In
terested In the new rubber factory for
Bast Akron, have lately held a c6u
ference wltli Architect F. O. Weniy,
regarding plans for the plant These
are now being prepared. The cnpaclty
of the shop will bo about half that
of tho Buckeye Hubber Co., It Is said.
The new company plans to begin on a
Bomowhat smaller scalo than certain
pepoits havo stated, but plans to grow
and will no doubt do so.
That tho rubber sesourccs of Col
ombia havo been wasted by natives
cutting down trees for rubber Instead
of tapping them, there seems to be
no doubt. The India Rubber World
eaya: Tho rapid decline in the Coloml
bian production of rubber gave no
concern to consumers, for tho rea
son that discoveries of rubber were
being mado elsewhere at a rate which
gave a steady impetus to the world's
total production. New fields have
been opened constantly elsewhere In
Bouth America, and the enormous out

But tho situation in Colombia is

to Ecuador, and, following tho prin

Eleven years ago tho United States
consul at,, Bara, Mnjor Kerbey, re

Tho Peruvian rubber or cnucho
forest arc already fast disappearing,
and tho nearest are now far away.
The practice of felling tho tree to
collect -tho rubber has destroyed all
the trees near the rivers, except far
up ou the TJcnyall and Javary rivers.
It Is alllrmed that extensive tracts
of forests havo not yet been touched,
but thai thdy arc dilllcult of access ou

perfectly safo to assert that in the
near future all tho available caucho

NEW YORK SOCIETY IS
DEBATING THE SUGGESTION
Now York, Oct. 28 Tho assertion
by Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, mistress
of tho Whlto Hotfso, that ?300 a year
is sufficient for a woman to dress well
tn society, Is a predominant topla of,
discussion among Now York women
of fashion, ''.
Mrs. Koosovolfs plan was, briefly,
to wear black and whlto almost ex
clusively for evening and street wear.
Every gown was selected so that it
would wear with slight repairing for
three seasons. Theso gowns wcro of
tho richest and heaviest silk. When
they would no longer permit of re
modeling they were made into waists.
Only in house gowns or deml-tollets
did she select bright colors.
Hero nrc tho views of threo pro
minent society women on the subject:
Emerson says: "As the fluto Is
heard farther than the .cart, see how
surely a beautiful form strikes tho
fancy of men and is copied and re-
produced without end. How many
copies aro thero of Belvedere, Appollo,
Venus, Psyche, tho Warwick Vase,
Parthenon and tho Temple of Vesta?
Beauty Is a quality, which makes to
endure." . ,
This thought occurs with the sug
gestion .that a woman can dress well
on ?300 a year. Having a beautiful
form and an oxprcsslvo countenance,
clothing will look well on one woman
where It would not on another, and If
more money wero spent In obtaining
new idens for tho mind than in now
clothes for the outside adornment, Just
ns many people would bo employed,
tcnchei's, printers of books and others
and makers of beautiful household
furniture, (as with beauty of mind,
one would want tho envlornments to
be lovely,) ns thero now arc In tho
manufacture of dress goods.
Mrs. Roosevelt 3ays sho never has
spent more than 300 a year and uses
the previous years' gowns. It is quite
possible she can always look as well
as any lady where sho would visit, al
though she would havo to appear In
tho same gown on many occasions. As
everyone knows, .Mrs. Edwin Gould
can afford more, yet, when sho had
a becoming greon velvet gown, sho
woro It nearly everywhere one winter.
As Mrs. Roosovolt says, sho can get
tho best artists and best materials
and have threo nice dresses for $300;
a tailor-made effect for $50, an even
ing gown for $160, ?75 for a gown
which could bo used on all occasions
In tho houso, and $25 for remodelling
the former attire with tho uowest
The finest materials can bo often re
made, as many aro proud now to bring
forward old mnterials that their grand
mothers wore, and Mrs. Roosevelt
says that her dross for tho New Year's
reception will be trimmed 'with laco
which Is an heirloom.
However, she Is greatly to bo praised
that .she has tho courage to bravely
tell tho women of America, that they
spend to much time and thought on
outward adornment, and not sufficient
