' The Indications at the majority of

Pennsylvania will have nearly all of

she would have a team about the

there Is expected a larg' squad of

fact that Murphy has returned to
Pennsylvania Is taken as a good omen
by many of the followers of the red

Yale enters gridiron work with pros

FROM FALL OPENINGS.
SfaiOBkblr Fabrics For Gowns
How to Make aid Trim Them.
The fall openings are following each
other with great rapidity, and we see a
few entirely new things,- but many
more of old acquaintance, though they
have perhaps some trifling points of
difference. The old standard broad
cloths, for Instance, cannot change save
In their colorimrs. These colorings are
very rich, many of them being helio
tropes and purples of various shades.
Among the purples, which are duplicat
ed In silks, velutinas and other fabrics,
we find corlnthe, dahlia, eminence, vio
let, royal purple, plum, damson, helio
trope and Iris. There are other and
lighter shades, among them lobelia, li
lac, cyclamen, prelate and clematis, be
sides a new blue like the old cornflower
blue with a lilac tint. Damson is a
beautiful shade and makes up richly
In any of the fall goods, particularly In
the velutinas and cloths. It seems to
require a thick and fine material for
this shade to be seen at Its best, but It
Is suitable for young and old. I saw
several of the Louis XV. suits made of
this particular shade, with vests of
either pale blue or cream colored satin.
The edges were delicately embroidered
in pretty colors.
j Revival of Black Cashmere.
There are some browns and many
grays, but there will be a great vogue
for all the purple and helio shades.
Black also will have a rare prominence,
and many of the black dresses and
suits are truly beautiful, with fine Jet
ted trimming and delicate but effective
tracery of black silk embroidery. In
one suit I noticed a very original and
handsome arrangement. The gown
was of fine black cashmere, and this
will be much seen in almost every
range of indoor and outdoor wear.
There was a drop skirt, and to that
was fastened a kilted flounce hemmed
and tucked. Each tuck where it was
hemmed had a small cut jet bead set
in with every stitch. This was light
and handsome in itself, but when the
deep vandyke of the skirt fell over it.
and tliese points were filled wh em
broidery in heavy black silk, each leaf
and flower having some of the beads
wrought in with it, it was exceedingly
rich. The embroidery trailed on up
the skirt, losing Itself in tine tendrils.
There was a Louis coat with this, made
to lit tightly. The long vest was of
white satin embroidered in black with
beads and once in awhile a delicate
There are some lovely fine all wool
French ladles' cloths in the delicate
evening shades and in pastels. Black
broadcloths fifty-four Inches wide are
produced with dull or satin finish. Pru
nellas are also among the fine ma
terials for the corning season and win
ter. So far the smooth surfaced goods
have the preference.
Recent Evolutions In Jackets.
After the Louis XV. coat the num
ber of 6tyles is legion and everything
has a fresh appearance wrought out
from old lines by bringing the best of
several into existence In one. One
jaunty Jacket of striped rough cheviot
is cut so that the stripes come bias all
over the body except right down the
front, where the flat collar and front
are on the straight. It has loose coat
sleeves, with stitching at the wrist, and
two small buttons for trimming.
Another fetching Jacket has a sort of
yoke which extends down the front to
the bottom, uif all the rest is laid in
plaits, which reach out over the hips
and are held in to fit by a self belt.
This also has coat sleeves made full
at the top. The yoke goes straight
across the back about six Inches in
depth. All the rest Is plaited and belt
ed. A skirt of the same material has
a stitched strap about six inches from
the bottom, but not meeting at the
front by three Inches.
Another unusually stylish suit has the
skirt stitched In circles of three lines
all around. The Jacket is short, with
reefer front, double breasted, with
smoke pearl buttons. A cunning little
IHX'ket of tartan plaid Is set on one side
and a pointed strap is stitched up the
right side to the bust line. The sleeves
are like the others mentioned, with a
tiny flap of the plaid. Down the front
Is a line of wool fringe carrying all
the colors In the plakl, set directly on
the edg. The small collar Is flat and
there Is a deep hood of the plaid bor
dered with the fringe. This is pro
duced In dark blue and also In brown
and In a Scotch mixture. Empire
cloaks are seen, but are not remark
able for their beauty. The semilon$
coat is much liked, cut like a man's
and three-quarter length.

The changes that have been wrought
in the status of the pacing horse dur
ing the last twenty years is truly re
markable. Twenty-five years ago a

bring as much money, while within

two years ago S4owo was paid for

Instead of being hidden away and
Isolated, as he had been for hundreds
of years as an outcast and a disgrace
to the horse family, condemned to a
life of drudgery, he has been brought
out and exhibited to the public as a
sou and heir and equal to the best.
Thirty years ago there were no pac
ing contests held in this country. Once
in awhile at some local or minor meet
ing in the middle states a pacing purse
would be given for a small amount in
which some local and obscure horses
would contend, but few cared to see a
pacing race. But gradually and pa
tiently the pacer worked his way Into
the exclusive circle, and when he ap
peared everybody was surprised to see
what an excellent horse he was and
marveled at the terrific speed he
Thirty years ago a man who would
have predicted that the blood of the
pacer would stand- at the head of the
great trotting interest of the world
would have been called "loony" and
sent to the crazy house. It may be tak
en as historically true and applying to
any nation on the face of the earth
that where there are no pacers the
trotter will not be found.

didnt cause much of a flurry at tho

She was bred to the trotting stallion

sold to Robert Bonner for 135,000.

Rheumatism does not come on in a
causes that produce it work silently in the system for years. This insidious
disease becomes intrenched in the blood, and some exposure to cold or damp
weather, or slight indiscretion brings on an attack. Poor digestion, stomach
troubles, weak Kidneys, torpid Liver, and a general sluggish condition ol
the S3'stem are responsible for Rheumatism. Food souring in the stomach
poisons the blood, the failure of the Kidneys and Liver to act properly leaves
waste matter and impurities in the system, which, coming in contact with
the natural acids of the body, form uric acid. This is absorbed by the blood,
and as it penetrates to the muscles, nerves and bones produces the terrible
pains and aches and other disagreeable symptoms of Rheumatism. Life is
made a lorture by its excruciating pains, nerves are shattered, the health un
dermined, and if the disease is not checked it breaks down the strongest con
stitution. It will not do to depend on plasters, liniments, etc. ; such treatment
is helpful in easing the pain and reducing the inflammation, but does not
reach the blood where the real trouble is located. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism
and builds up the entire health. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism, whether acute
or chronic, and the cure is thorough and lasting. Book on Rheumatism
