WASHINGTON LETTER !
It will be a little cooler for the Amer

experiment the war department has
ordercd.to be thoroughly tested proves
to lie a success. Orange colored un

worn by 6,000 soldiers In the Islands

made with a view of ascertaining U
the theories evolved from experiments
In laboratories In Washington are ap
plicable with corresponding results Ir
Color Scheme In the Army.
Experiments carried on under the
direction of Surgeon General Relllj
and Inspector General XSarllngton re- j
vealed the fact that plants under an
orange colored glass grew less rapidly ,
than those under any other shade and
less man uau as inst as plants ex-
posod to the direct rays of the sun.
Other tests showed that black and ,
red absorbed the rays of the sun and i
thus Increased the warmth of persons 1
wearing clothing thus dyed. White. 1
blue and green disintegrated the rays, 1
while dlsnersine them most effective-'
ly. Oddly enough, further experiments
showed that orange, although contain-1
lng some red, practically prevented
the passage of the rays of heat.
With the reports favoring the use
of orange colored clothing Quarter-1
master General Aleshlre has ordered
I 5.000 suits of underwear and hat lln
lngs dyed In orange color and shipped
to the Philippines for distribution.
Only orange colored underwear will be
Issued to soldiers for one year, during
which time close medical observa
tion will be made of these men and a
comparison of their health made with
soldiers wearing white underwear.
Huge Bronze Casting.
The largest piece of bronze ever cast .
In a single piece in this country, if not '
In the world, was successfully execut-1
ed at Elrawood, near Providence. '
It was the Immense horse for the j
equestrian statue of General Phil Shcr-1
Idan recently unveiled in this city.
The flask in which the mold was
contained was about twelve feet In
length, six and one-half feet high and
eight feet In width and weighed be
tween seventy and seventy-five tons
before the metal was poured into it
It was strapped and supported on the
outside by iron and held In position
by immense reds and screws. The
work of making the mold was com
menced early In August and was con
tinued day and night
Sheridan on Horseback.
The statue Is of heroic proportions
and depicts "Gallant Phil" Sheridan
on the back of- his famous dark bay
Kentucky steed Rienzi in the very
act of turning to his fleeing soldiers at
Cedar creek after his historic twenty
mile ride from Winchester. With one
hand he is holding back his powerful
horse, while with the other, in which
his hat is clutched, he Is waving to his
men and encouraging them to turn the
1 tide of retreat
I The figure of Sheridan is a portrait
j likeness. His clothing and accouter
j ments are modeled after garments
, worn by him. He is shown wearing a
service uniform, with sword and spun.
I His hat is rolled up in the hand with
which ho is beckoning to his men. The

the whole figure, being clean cut and

A Famous Steed.
The horse is also modeled as far as
j possible after the horse which Sheridan
I rode. The animal, which was some
I times known as Rienzi and sometimes
' as Winchester, was skinned after its
, death, and the hide was presented to
the Governors island museum, where
, l has since been preserved. The size
! and general contour of the horse were
gained from this relic.

will be one change which the employ

In the morning he takes a hearty
breakfast, and this lasts him until din
ner time, when he can do justice to as
good a meal as any one. No matter
how nctlve he has been, the luncheon
Is scratched from Mr. Taft's pro

WOMAN AND FASHION
Dresay Tailored Effect.
The dressy effect of many of the new
coat and skirt suits depends upon the
trimming used. The foundations of
most of the favored models are usually
simple, but an elaborate effect Is gained
by heavy braid and ornaments. This
idea Is Illustrated In the smart suit
shown In the Bketch. Although abso
lutely simple In design, the heavy braid
ornaments give it quite an elaborate
and dressy air. The skirt, very severe
in cut, is oddly and most effectively
trimmed with the same ornaments seed

on the coat The long, close fitting
sleeves are also a feature, and the long.
sloping shoulder effect is pleasing.
The one piece costume now so popu
lar has brought the separate coat Into
high favor, and considerable thought
should be given to the choice of the
useful garment for if wisely chosen it
will prove a Joy to Its owner during
the entire season. For those who can
afford it a coat made of the material
of each cloth gown is desirable, but
would prove quite expensive If one In
tends having two or more cloth cos
tumes, and a fur coat will be found
for the winter months by far the most
satisfactory, for it Is always rich,
dressy in effect and may be worn with
both light and dark skirts with satis
Boots Vary This Seooon,
Boots vary this year according to the i
costumes with which they are worn, '
but the smartest as well as most gen
erally becoming boots show a mod
erately high Cuban or military heel
and somewhat pointed toes. The
broad, square toed shoes are truly ,
hideous. They ruin the appearance of I
even the daintiest foot, and they are 1
no more hygienic and comfortable than
a slightly pointed shoe, provided al-
ways that the latter shoe is long
enough to permit of a slight point with-
out compressing the foot
The very high heels are bad for the j
feet and the body as well and are dan- '
gerous in themselves, as even those ac- '
customed to them are far more likely
to trip and fall than with any other
sort of shoe. Yet the very high Louis
heel is still worn by some.
