reason for havint the cows face each

Some observant person noticed in
studying the habits of cows. that in
variably they graze in the pasture witht
their hacks to the sun. He thus figured
it out that by arranging the stalls so
that they follow the cows' natural in
clination to turn away from strong
light the cows will be happier, and a

a added advantage of so arranging the

Then we will be able not only to get our old connections back, but also to see

15,000,000 Women Drew Pay for Labor During War
TATISTICS prove that dur\ng the war nearly 15,000,000 women actually
were drawing pay for their services. More than a million of them never
had done a day's work in their lives. The volunteers would add another million.

Where Honors Are Even
Tailored suits continue to come from
the hands of manufacturers in two dis- 1
tinctly different types, with the buying
public showing a preference for the
In the matter of decorations, fur is
widely but not lavishly used, and
carefully done silk embroidery is very
often used with it. Being of the same
character they look well together. At
the right of the two suits pictured
here there is a fine example of the
combination of fur and embroidery in
a suit of wool velours. The skirt in
this model has two narrow plaits at
the side and is very long. The coat is
a very handsome affair, uneven in
length about the bottom and having
wide panels, shorter than the front
and hack, set in. They are banded
r with two narrow bands of dark fur.
Embroidery, in the same color as the
cloth, finds an advantageous position
i at each side of the coat skirt. The
body buttons a little to the -left of the
front with large, fiat cloth-covered but
tame, and there is high collar of the

cloth, handed with fur, that fastens at
the left side. Fur In two large orna
ments finishes the narrow girdle with
long ends at the front. With this
dressy suit a sailor hat of silk beaver
looks particularly well.
TI'y suit at the left is a quite differ
ent affair, much plainer and made of a
sturdier material. Bone buttons and
narrow braid are the very pratical em
bellishments allowed to it and its lines
are simple and mannish. But it has
the high, cozy looking collar of fur
that is found in the company of all
sorts of suits and the narrow belt of
the material. But this is extended only
across the front of the coat, button
ing at the sides. Just by way of not
going to extremes in being plain and
practical, the belt is double, with no
particular reason for being so except
that it adds an attractive and unex
pected Interest to this small item in
the suit's make-up. The hat is a tail
ored model, but not so plain as a
banded sailor. Neither suit is afraid
of compirison, honors are about even
