. . . About two years ago Mr. Mrllnrg was en
gaged as a special attorney by the department of justice and assigned to the
E'" fraud ca" "' New Mexico. Later he represented the de
partment in litigation connected with Indian affairs In Oklahoma. While thus
engaged hP was selected by Frank H. Hitchcock, then In charge of William
H. Tafts campaign for the presidential nomination, to prepare the cases ol
contesting delegations for presentation to the Republican national committee,
and the committee on cred-.dlala at the Chicago convention.
.. mttnnHr ln whlrh Mr McHarg handled these cases attracted to him
the attention of the pa.ty leaders, who recognized his ability at once. After
the convention he was actively engaged In campaign matters under Mr. Hitch
cock. Mr. McHarg succeeds William R. Wheeler of California as assistant sec
retary of the department of commerce and labor. Mr. Wheeler last December
was on the point of tendering his resignation to accept the position of man
ager of the traffic bureau of the Merchants' Kxchange of San Francisco, for
which he has been chosen at a salary of $16,000 a year. At the earnest re
quest of President Roosevelt, however, he made arrangements whereby his
assumption of his new position would be deferred until after the close of the

One of the members of the expedition In recounting the story of the
Journey, ..id that when they started on the trip to the magnetic pole the
weather was so hot they had to pull their two sledges ln singlets. There was
half a ton of provisions on each sledge. After a comparatively easy 250-mlle
Journey along the sea Ice they had an almost hopeless climb to the Inland
plateau. They carried their lives in their hands, fighting their way Inch by
t Inch and suffered great privations on the return Journey When rescued by
the Nlmrod they were a party of gaunt skeletons; the Nlmrod had almost
given them up for lost. x
The members of Lieut. Shackleton's party state that when they were
compelled to turn back their bodily strength was diminishing so rapidly that
their temperatures went down to far below normal, in some cases reaching
93 degrees, and in others considerably lower than that.
Had this party been two days later ln reaching the Nlmrod It would have
been frozen in for another season. They declare that any future explorer at
tempting to reach the pole must be provided with much larger supplies of
food, because there Is no doubt that the south pole is situated on a high
plateau and that the coldest and stormiest weather In the world prevails there,
there being 70 degrees of frost under the very mildest conditions.

The Justices of the court of appeals of the District of Columbia were high

of them expiessed it, ln view of the fact that all appeals from the com mis

HAS GIVEN US NEW FABRIC
Striking and Beautiful Metallic Tis
sue an Idea Evolved by Paris
The artist craftsman as well as the
designers of gowns ln Paris are
quite thrilled over the marvelous dis
covery by an artist of a new fabric.
He has invented it and will not give
the secret away.
He may have discovered the proc
ess, but no one else can find It,
and, therefore, all the orders for It
must come to him. He cannot satisfy
the demand, as all kinds of accessor
ies to the costumes are made of It.
It is metallic tissue which is opal

of gold, from the palest tint to a

It has the aspect of a coat of mail,
and yet Is so Bitpple that It can be

It is light In weight, does not dis
color and has the lights of an opal
when the sun Is on It.
The fabric can be used for dra
peries on gowns, for bodice trim
mings, for long, tight sleeves In eve
ning frocks. Its latest use Is for eve
ning shoeB with high silver heels and
splendid paste buckles In front.
It Is also made up by some of the
ultra-expensive milliners Into cra
vats to be worn with high-necked
afternoon and restaurant gowns.
For spring dresses and still b of the

The vogue for white serge has been
on the Increase for a season or two,
but this year It Is to be especially
marked. Two-thirds of the early sum
mer serge dresses are In white, gray
or castor color. The proper while is
that called oyster, which suggests a
gray Just off the white. Serge suits
of this sort are often most elaborately
trimmed. Harper's Muzar.

A trained nurse of long experlet
emphasized the necessity of keeping

NOVELTY IN GINGHAM LINE
Recent Patterns Are an Improvement
on the Conventional Severely
A new gingham for small girls has a
square patterning made by crossed
bars of pale blue, pink, scarlet or yel
low on a white background. Other
novel ginghams are shown with silk
figures in self-color, these taking the
form of diamonds, small rosebuds, leaf
sprays and round dots. The conven
tional little checks In solid blue and
white are still seen, and for simple
dresses these are pretty.
French calicoes, which are far more
expensive than the name may sound,
are quaint rarities sold by the yard at
the most pretentious shops. One de-
llghtrul design ln this really exquisite
material was ln pale buff, flowered
with blue. Another showed brilliant,
tight little rosebuds with green
leaves against a white ground and
still another was in pale gray with

LATEST PARIS MODEL
Dlouse of pink silk, forming a sort
of Jumper with shoulder straps and
ornamented with buttons.
The under blouse and long, close
fitting sleeves are of tucked tulle, the
former trimmed in front with little
ruffles of dotted tulle or fine lace. The
yoke Is of heavy lace or guipure.
No More Tired Feet.
It Is quite remarkable how much
more rested a housekeeper Is at the
end of l lie day if she makes it a rule
never to stand at any of her house
work when she can sit.
One woman always used a tall stool
when washing and wiping her dishes
or Ironing small pieces. She finds she
can peel her vegetables und Btlr a
cake gotta as well sitting as standing.
The result Is that she does not
know what it is to have tired feet
when night comes.
