Following the twa talks, the League
had a round table discussion of the pro

of opinion was that there are times j
when public sentiment is divided on a
big issue in which one part) is for the!
issue and the other against. In such
cases the vote with the party is a vote
for the principles regardless of the can
didate. The common situation, according lo
the women present, is that the various
candidates for nomination in the primary
are fairly well balanced. In such in
stances it is best to vote with the party
if one can do so without the sacrifice oft

BROWN HAIR MOST COMMON
Hairnet Shades Vary From Black to
Blondes or brunettes. It would seem
that pure types of either are scarce in
Columbia if the sale of 'different shades
of hairnets is a means of judgment.
Medium brown is the shade most
commonly called for. It is the ultimate
decision of the undecided woman whose
hair approaches an)where near tht
neighborhood of brown. Dark brown is
next in popularity, the inclination to
ward the darker shades being further
shown by the fact that light brown hair

Columbia art shops are showing lovely
water colors and prints that should meet
all possible requirements.
There are delightful Maxfield Parrish

the beautiful blue background of sky
with a fairy castle mistily looming and
;n the foreground a little boy floaty by

nibbing a wee nose against the wooly
fur o a tiny puppy. In addition to tnese
more artistic pictures there are any num-
ber of nursery rhyme prints.
The prints of Wallace INutting seem
lo be made for a girls room, particularly
.the girls in the college or university.
There is a large assortment downtown
of small scenes about six by eight inches
that 'bear interesting titles and sell from
$1 to $2. Some of the titles are The
Stitch" showing the mtenor of an eai"
Colonial mansion and a )oung girl sewing,
while another gives a view of "Grand

ly named. Similar to these are the prints
of Charles H. Higgins. His scenes take
up a later period of the life in America
but are equally attractive. One of his
j bet known is given the title of "A Call
On The Governor's Wife."
Most important of all, are the pictures
that are intended to grace the walls of
the living room. The choice for selection
here much exceeds any other. There are
many more and much larger Wallace Nut

such as "The Elm Drapery" depicting a

Breathing the very mystery and ro

of Chinese jewelry that has found its
way into this country- With the new

been a sudden demand for this jewelry.
The deeper and more impenetrable
the green of the jade the more precious
and cost!) it is. This deep green jade
is hard to obtain and it seldom finds its
way to the United States. Most of the
tone that is sold here is of a lighter
greenish-white shade not so rare. The
cost being less it finds a ready market.
Jade rings of the better type sell from

number and their history. Probably the
most valuable jade necklace in the world
is owned by Mrs. B. W. Fleisher, whose
husband is owner of the Japan Adver
tiser of Tokio. This necklace is valued
at $100,000 or more and the jades are
beautiful, judged from the standpoint of
color and settings.
American women have taken a fancy
to the artificial pearl bead rather than
I he cultured or natural pearl. These ar
tificial pearls are made by taking a
small piece of mother of pearl and cov
ering it with a coating made from a
mixture of pearl dust, obtained from
grinding the real pearls and fish glue.
These beads when completed are lovely,
finished in a light pink shade, white or
dark gunmetal. They are true in color
and form, unbreakable and in many
cases will pass for real pearls. The
Japanese are adept in the manufacture
of these pearls, but thus far they have
refused to reveal the secret to any for
eigners. Other beads from China that are de
cidedly popular are those made of tur
quoise, amber and crystal. These crys
tal beads are not the pieces of glass that
many American people accuse them of
being, but are mined stones, polished and
finished much as diamonds are.
The ambers are exceptionally beau
tiful and ornaments made of honey am
ber are rather expensive. A small pair
cf ear drops sells from $15 to $75. This
amber is clear and transparent and al
ways nicely cut and polished. The
agate is another form of Chinese am-
ber and is popular used as a neck or
nament. The Peking blue bead, another pecu
liar bead, is being extensively used here.

One of the expenses o' conducting a

Several Columbia shops have solved
the problem of sample waste to a great
extent. When 'a bolt of goods is received
a narrow strip of the material is cut
from the end, then saved for samples.
Before this was done, at times fifteen
or twenty samples would be given from
a bolt, sometimes costing the merchant
several dollars, and absorbing much of
his .prof its. "on that bolt of goods.

The Extension division of the Universi

women of Missouri this )ear. This work
is directed through the main office here
in Columbia but carried out through the
different counties of the state. Practically
every county has been covered with some
kind of women's work, and many of them
have had several different kinds.

are worked out by Miss Saidee Hausmann.
She has been in extension work for the

The work of the extension department,
among the women as well as among the

books was kept up until the library grew
to such proportions that the city took it
over only last year.
