OUGHT TO BE A NICE DRESS
A press association dispatch from Newport, R. 1., says: "Miss Irene Sherman weds
Mr. Laura nee Gillespie, wearing the most expensive and elaborate wedding gown ever
seen in this country. It is princess style, of ivory satin and lace and cost $60,000."
It would be interesting to know the consensus of peoples' opinions on reading this
Undoubtedly, some readers will say that any one putting $<>(),00<) into a gown is a fool.
Others will say that Irene is heartless to spend all that money on one dress when
there are so many poor people suffering about her.
Still others will say: "Good thing! There's a lot of foolish rich people's money gone
into circulation among the dressmakers, anyhow."
Some will envy Irene the possession of such a dress.
Rut how many will figure it out that they probably helped pay for that finery?
Of course, Irene never earned that dress. She either inherited the money with which
to buy it. or dad set up "the goods."
Ninety-five per cent of the people who flicker around Newport on fairy social wings
never earned a cent in their lives and would blush if accused of doing so. They are the
product of somebody's cinch on special privilege, which means that we ordinary peo
ple indirectly pay for the most expensive dresses and permit the Newport butterflies
to flutter around in them.
We've never been introduced to Papa W. AVatts Sherman, who may be the one who
was really soaked for Irene's gown, but the chances are large that he has a succulent,
productive connection with Standard Oil, the clothing, or meat, or biscuit, or tobacco, or
tin trust, or perhaps even with that extensive villainous trust through which dear
old Andrew Carnegie worked himself up to a state of philanthropy, religion and re
Somewhere, somehow—it is pretty safe to say—the fellow who has daughters throw
ing on the "glad rags" at $60,000 per can be relied upon to have his pump working deep
in a condition that makes us commoners pay bonus on everything we eat, wear or
otherwise consume. So, forsooth, many of our readers may have an interest in this
"most expensive gown ever seen in this country."

FATALLY HURT TRYING
TO RESCUE HER
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20.—
Miss Karen Peterson, said to
be a sister of a well known
prima donna, is near death to
day because she tried to rescue
her pet fox terrier, which had
fallen from a street car.
Miss Peterson was seated in
an open end of the car when
the little animal struggled from
her arms and fell to the street.
Without waiting for the car to
stop she rushed to the steps
and leaped. Her head struck
the asphalt pavement, causing
a fracture of the skull.
According to the physicians
of the Good Samaritan hospi
tal, where she was taken, her
chances for recovery are slight.
Strange, this sudden interest of the railways and bre very interests
in the commission form of government.

What Other Store Would Sell
Real French Net Curtains So Low?
WE ordered, three months ago, this entire stock of beautiful French
net curtains. When they came to us there was one business con
dition with which the manufacturers had not complied. The result
was that we got the curtains at almost a third less than their whole
sale value. As a result you may choose from
Forty-One Patterns—a Thousand Curtains—
at About ONE THIRD Less Than
Their Prices Would Have Been!
No better French net is put into curtains than you will find among
these. It is extra heavy, imported net, "gassed" to take away the
cloudy look of the cheaper domestic goods. The Renaissance work
and the motifs with which the curtains are trimmed, are most beau
tifully executed, and the patterns include novelty Savoy, linou Cluny,
Nubian point, French Renaissance and French Lacet Arabian. We know
you have never seen real French net curtains of these qualities, selling
at prices so low, before. Every price in this list is about one-third under
what you would have paid under other circumstances.

Too many grownups doubt that story about Cinderella,
her tiny slipper and the handsome prince and all that.
Just to show how true it all was we cite the case of Miss
Mildred Mermelstein of New York city.
Some time in the recent past Miss Mildred, returning
from a dance, lost her slipper (tiny, etc.) on the street car
—it falling off her dainty tootsie just as she was alighting,
and the horrid conductor —probably in league with Cupid
—refused to kick the little bit of footwear off.
Next, the handsome prince, name Samuel Newman, also
of the world's second greatest city, found the slipper, and
recognizing immediately that such a small slipper mufly
belong to a remarkably pretty girl—just like the olden
time prince argued—set out to find his Cinderella.
He did. A want ad helped him. It fitted exactly tho
tootsie of the bashful miss.
A New York jeweler has sold another diamond ring,
the preacher is ready, the furniture man has been seen,
and Cinderella and her enraptured prince are awaiting
the happy day.
