course, and the suits may be had with skirt and sweater hems and button
bunds of royal blue and dark red. They are very stunning.
The skirt in the cut is one of the most useful of the season's styles, espe
dally for outdoor use. It is made with panel back and front and finished
with inverted plaits at the sides. The buttons are dome shaped. The skirt
is the creation of one of the leading English houses. The suit in the cut is
smart and trim when correctly cut and tailored. For yachting there is noth

gingham, lawn or any suitable wash goods. AMANDA RIDDLE.

twelve years old.

Years ago when it was decided that

signers found a fertile field for their
talents in the designing of special gar

the latest results of their efforts is seen
in the accompanying illustration.
It is a "habit auto coat," and it al
most speaks for itself, embodying as it
does some novel and useful lines. It
fastens down the back, and there is a
fullness at the knees that enables the
wearer to sit down easily. When she
stands the fullness gives a graceful
draped effect. The weight of the ma
terial and the pattern of the lines of
the auto habit coat give the wind no
chance to creep in under the front
edges of the garment in the manner
that is so annoying when one is going

Moist Air Indispensable In Many In-
There are many materials, opera
tions and products whk-h require spe
cial atmospheric conditions for advan
tageous or profitable maintenance.
Principal among socb operations [a the
manufacture of textiles, perhaps the
largest single industry carried on in
factories. In the Favored climate of
tlie Manchester and Boiton districts of
England the natural climate affords
working conditions equaled in Amer
ica only on occasional days in certain
Even in England, however, there are
many days in which the atmosphere
is too dry for the best work. Since
textile Sbers are increased in streugtu
and elasticity by high humidity and
moderately high temperature, break
ages are less frequent under proper
conditions, and the output is increased.
But even before the tiTier readies the
manufacturing plant atmospheric hu
midity plays an important part.
Cotton loses weight as it dries out;
but. more than that, the fibers bristle
and appear shorter and of lower grade
than when slightly moistened. Leath
er, feathers and many other porous
substances lose a considerable percent

the maintenance of average and uni
form humidity in the storage rooms
has a direct advantage to the owner
in maintaining the value of his goods
as they lie in the warehouse.
Cigars and tobacco lose tiavor in dry
air and regain it to some extern, after
loss, by storage in properly humidified
rooms. Wooden furniture and musi

or the finish injured by the dry air of
steam heated rooms. All these and
other similar goods are advantaireous

The Culture of Pearls.
In Japan, abuut a dozen miles south
of the famous shrive of Ise. in the
sheltered bay of Ago, long noted for
producing the Qnest of oriental pearls,
these wonderful "'solidified drops of

The process of raising culture pearls
is simple and enormously successful
With great care pearl oysters are de
veloped until they are about three
years old, when small pearls, or round
pieces of nacre, w bicb are to serve as
the nuclei of large pearls, are intro
duced into the shells.
The oysters are then put back into
the sea and lift undisturbed for at
least Join- years, at the end of which
time they are gathered and opened,
when it is found that the animal has
invested the inserted nucleus with
many layers of nacre, producing a
large and perfect pearl. All that is re
quired are care and patience, qualities
which the .lapane.se possess to the ut
How to Drill Glass.
There are various ways of drilling
glass, all of which call for skill and
patience. The following methods are
suggested by the editor of Power':
"l*ut a piece of brass tubing in the
drill spindle, the diameter of the tube
being equal to that of the hole desired.
Revolve rapidly and feed with emery
and water. For making holes in thin
glass pat a piece of stiff day or putty
ou the part where you wish to make
the hole. .Make a hole in the putty
or clay equal in diameter to that of
the hole you wish to make, letting the
hole reach the glass, of course. Into
this hole pour a little molten lead, and
the piece will drop out."' It is said that
glass may also be readily drilled with
an ordinary Hat drill made as hard as
possible, slowly revolved and liberally
supplied with turpentine.
Vegetable Cast Iron.
Official tests of the many valuable
hard woods native to Western Australia
have made known the extraordinary
properties of yate. believed to be the
strongest of all known woods, its
average tensile strength, says Har
per's Weekly, is 24.000 pounds to the
square Inch, equaling that of good
cast iron. But many specimens are
much stronger, and one was tested up
to seventeen and a half tons to the
square inch, which is equal to the ten
sile strength of wrought iron. The
sawed timber of yate is probably the
strongest in the world. The tree grows
to a maximum height of a hundred
feet and has sometimes a diameter of
two and a half or even three feet.
Railways In Madagascar.
A comprehensive scheme is being
formulated by the French government
to establish a complete railway sys
tem in the island of Madagascar.
There is at present a narrow gauge
line about lfio miles in length. The
new project comprises standard gauge
railways through the most fertile val
leys In the island that will open np to
commerce this hitherto almost entirely
unexplored region. The mineral wealth
of the country is reported to be great,
while the vegetation is said to resem

forests than the jungles of the near
continent of Africa.
