SOUTACHE BRAIDING ON FILET NET. .
One of the striking style notes of the season is the elaborate braiding
of soutache on sheer nets.. These net braidings may be had by the yard in
border trimming effecis, and this charming blouse is formed of braided net
bandings of this character in combination with plain filet net. In this case
the plain net and the narrow entre deux of Cluny lace, which join the band
ings to the net, were both dyed to match the shade of the band trimming,
the color being a soft smoke gray, to correspond with the gray cloth skirt.
The square yoke opening of the blouse is edged with a Persian embroid
ered trimming in gray, silver and Dutch blue tones. The buttons on the
sleeves are of silver.
This is the merchant's unloading time, and y oil are offered

will run between Burlington and Keo

tween Keokuk and Quincy. and the
Wenona, which will do excursion work
here in the latter part ot the season.
It will be observed that there are
two new names in the list. The Wen

purchased last fall and which is being
rebuilt. It will be started in the trade
down the river in the spring and will
continue there till the Silver Crescent
is rebuilt at the Wabasha yards. - -.
The latter is to be made larger and
changed: in various other ways, the
name being changed to Black Hawk.
It will be taken south when the season,
is well advanced to take the place of
the Wenona. '. The latter will be used

The new victor records for .January
offer new opportunities to hear fine
music and other entertainment. The
records are so distinct that, like all
iifvujiis ittums, uiey give me listener
the impression that the singers and
instrumentalists are actually perform
ing in his presence. .
There are in the new list four rec
brdVof singing by Emmy Destinn, the
new prima, donna of the Metropolitan
opera in New York, who is making her
first appearance in America. Her bril
liant success in leading opera houses
abroad has been made through her in
terpretation of prominent operatic
roles.. ;. From these selections are
chosen for Victor records, "Kennst du
das Land " from Thomas's opera of
"Mignon;" ' two arias from Puccini'
"Madame Butterfly," sung in Italian
in distinct contrast to the German in
which the "Migoon" selection is heard,
and another number given In German"
is the, great "Vateland, aria" from
Verdi's opera of "Aida." 1 Iu hearing
the reproduction of her dramatic voice.
the success which she l(as achieved as
an artist is easily understood, so de
lightful do" these records proves
Evan Williams, the, tenor, again con
tributes to the Records a spirited air
from Gounod's "Queen of Sheba,4 in
which, his fine tone quality and com
prehension of the art of phrasing are
well shown. Mme. Sembrich's glorious
voice is heard to notable advantage iu
the florid "Bel raggio," from- Rossini's
opera of "Seminunidp," and in two
other arias one frpm Donizetti's "Dinda
di Chamounrx,Vahd from Verdi's J4Ves
pri Siciliani," the bolero' from which i
given. , Folk songs f sung by ,v Mme;
Schumann-Helnk show ' her rich con
tralto voice splendidly. Mme.' Giusep
pina Huguet,- soprano, adds : ait aria
from Meyerbeer's "Les Huguenots.
These various operatic selections with)
full orchestral accompaniment afford
exceptional musical enjoyment, poss
ible to all and in any place at any
In addition to these vocal treats is a
violin solo by Mischa Elman, the cele
brated young Russian artist who is
now making his first American tour.
His playing of Sairit-Saens' "Rando
Capriocioso" seems wonderful in its
correct reproduction of tone.
A novelty is the farewell address of
Rear Admiral Evans, "Fighting Bob,")
on his retirement from active service
in the navy. This address will be en-j
joyed by the thousands of admirers ofj
the great admiral, who, as Kipling said, !
"has lived more stories than I could j
invent." ' -
'The new records of band music in-!
elude "Fairest of the Fair," a newl
march by Sousa, played by Sousa's
band. Arthur Pryor's band and the
Victor orchestra also play "selections
which are delightful. Vocal solos by
well known singers, cornet numbers,
selections by quartets, comic songs by
Nat M. Mills and Billy Murray, a new
Scotch song by Harry Lauder, and var
ious other records afford-ample oppor
tunity for -adding to Tone's library of
Victor music. , .
