COBN-HVSK HATS FOE FOCB NOTEE
Queon-Vlctorla. Mr?. McKinley. Ml?? Helen
Oould and Mr? Stanley Will Receive
Kansas ? Festival Souvenirs.
The N. Y. World says:
Within the next few days Miss
Helen Oould will receive from Kan
? aas people, who admire her although
- Ihey never saw her, a strange sou?
venir of Kansas'? unique festival
This will be a hat made entirely of
eorn husks, and yet so artistically
arranged that it will rank with the
productions of the best milliners.
Aside from Miss Gould few persons
will be honored with a present of one
of these hats especially made for
'them. The onlv ones who will get
them are Mrs. McKinley, '?aeen Vic?
toria and Mrs. Stanley, wife of the
Governor of Kansas.
The festival which the presentation
of these hats is to mark is one pecu.
liar to Kansas. It is the eorn festi
, val, and will be celebrated on Se> ?
teraber 21 in honor of the great crop
of eorn raised in the State this year.
When there is a good crop tbe
celebration is held; when tbe crop a
poor it is put off until the next sue
eessful year. As the crop this year
ia bigger than it has been for a long
time the celebration will be bigger
Oae of tbe unique features of tbe
celebration has been the corn-husk
hat, originated by Mrs. M. J. Cusack,
who has won a wide reputation as
the "corn-husk milliner." Each year
' the hats she has made have been
finer than those of tbe preceding
year, bat now she seems to have
reached tbe acme of corn-busk milli
The hat for Miss Gould, for whom
Mrs. Cusack basa great admiration,
ia made after a pattern sent from
Paris. Tbe husks are woven in imi
tation of Tuscan braid, and are dyed
in two shades of lavender. It is al?
most covered with violet made from
husks, and beneath the brim is a
bunch of tea roses.
Queen Victoria's bat is a Marie
Stuart shape, trimmed with passion
flowers, which have a wonderfully
natural and silky appearance. The
?rnme is of royal puple braid, and
knots of cream-colored husks are
fastened among the roses. The
frame for Mrs, McKinley's hat is
madejo imitate impo t d straw, and
in trimmed with Mar?chal Neil
roses and black rosettes.

Captain O'Farrell, Oncea Scad Eepucli
can Scores Imperialistic Policy.
Captain Patrick O'Farrell, of
Washington, D. C, is one of tbe orig?
inal "antis,'' and regardless of a
long and. faithful allegiance to the
Republican party anounces his inten?
tion of "kicking over tbe traces" and
voting for Bryan or any candidate
pat forward by the Democratic party.
"President McKinley's great bob
by," he says, "is the flag. One day
he speaks at the Catholic summer
school and reminds his hearers that
we bave a flag. The next day we
find him telling the Methodists that
piety and patriotism go hand in
band, and right in the same breath
with bis piety, tells the barefaced
falsehood that tbe flag means the
same thing in the Philippines that it
does in the United States."
TLe captain compares tbe R?volu
tionary campaign of Washington to
Aguinaldo's struggles, remarking
that when France came to the rescue
of the former, driving Cornwall^
from the field, she did not take ad?
vantage of the power she bad gained,
bnt magnanimously turned the whole
business over to Washington.
"And England, too," he said,"did
not say to France,'Here's $20,000,000,
take the outfit,' and the repre?
sentatives of France did not say,
'Now, George, there are a lot of Torys
dallying round the country and they
are afraid your men will cut loose and
cat their throat?; they are not afraid
of you personally?you are a gentle
man?but tbe rank and file of your
army is simply a rabble, therefore
we'll stay and take charge of affiirs
until things become somewhat soft?
ened. Then if you'll be good you
can conduct the government to suit
yonraelf with certain paternal direc?
tions from us.'
"That is the proposition in the
Philippines," the captain asserts,
" and it's a disgrace to our great
nation." Then, after paying some
attention to the President and bis ad?
ministration in a quaint dry style,
Captain O'Farrell said, in his opinion
the proper thing to do would be to
withdraw the American troops and
permit the Filipinos to form their
own government, the United States
to reserve a coaling station. The
oaptain urged this because tbe Fili
picoa are better fitted to conduct
their affairs of state than the Cubans.
Captain O'Farrell commanded
Company G, Sixty nioth New York,
during the Civil War, and is judge
advocate of John A Rawlins Post,
G. A. R., department of the Potomac.
He has been a! lively campaigner
In every campaign sine Grant's first
Story of a Slave.
To be bound hand and foot for years
by the chains of disease Is tbe worst
form of slavery. George D. Willisms
of Manchester, M lob., tells bow such a
slave was made free. He says: "My
wife has been so helpless for five years
that she oould not turn over in bed
alone. After using two bottles of Elec
trlo Bitters, she is wonderfully im?
prove.! and able to do her own work. ' '
This supreme remedy for female dis
??oses quiokly cures nervousness, sleep
loosnnsi, melancholy, headache, back
aohe, fainting and dizzy spells. This
miracle working medicine is a godsend
to week, sickly, ran down people.
Every bottle guaranteed. Only W cents.
