THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, MARCH 13, 1911.
The Popularity of Empire Fashions
On of the surprises of the season
1b the return of the empire waistline.
In , eyery department of drees, from
the simple tailor costume to the moi;
elaborate ball gown, the Raised waist
line Is suggested. All of the most re
cent Importations from France Indicate
the continued popularity of the empire
fashion. When formerly In vogue a
few years back, this style was greatly
exaggerated, but as it is shown at pres
ent it is much modified and far more
becoming. The conservative woman
fand this is perhaps the very latest with the cloth skirts and for a cer
) idea from Paris. In the hat the color ; tain style of rather elaborate after-

may be suggested again in two stiff
little wings standing up straight on
each side, the straw itself being
either black. or the shade of the
dress. A hat does not necessarily
. match the gown with which it is
I worn, and indeed some foreign note
is to be noticed in either hat or coat
;of every plain streef costume of dark
; color. -
One of the handsomest of the new
spring cover-all coats is shown in the
first illustration. It was made of
I cream cheviot with the collar, oddly
I shaped revers and cuffs of king's
iblue satin. In the second figure is
shown a most attractive little frock
fashioned from green cotton voile
and trimmed with bands of black
satin. The skirt was made with the
noon dress, figured silks are decid
edly in fashion's favor. While veiled
effects are to be noticed among foul
ard gowns as In all other materials,
veiling is by no means obligatory,
and for an essentially practical dress
as simple a pattern as possible should
be procured and the simpler the mod
el It is copied from the better.
For a three-piece costume tussah
Is as popular as ever and the pon
gees and rajahs are equally In de
mand. It is well to determine be
fore purchasing a piece of pongee for
a gown whether or not the silk is
waterproof, or rather will not spot
in the rain, as there are qualities
upon which the tiniest drop of water
will make an immense stain.

are many exceedingly pretty striped,

market this year which will make up
excellently for the late spring suits.
SOFT FABRICS FOR DRAPISO.
Satins and soft silks draped in
chiffon, chiffon cloth, mousseline de
soie or marquisette are the favored
combinations for costumes for all
spring festivities; and for gowns
that must be "done over" to serve
a second term of usefulness, draped
robe effects solve easily what In for
mer years has often proved a dis
tressingly difficult problem.
With a satin of silk frock as foun
dation It is possible nowadays to
turn out a gown that can take Its
place unblushingly among the best In
the outlet, for when an over-dress
is added every line in the gown can
with ease be made most satisfactor
ily up-to-date. With most of last
year's dresses considerable material
must be taken from each width in
the skirt, and often this material can

the well dressed woman has adopted
this style of dress to a conspicuous de
gree, and certainly she has done so
wisely for the style promises to remain
in vogue for some time to come.
TOtTHKS OF COLOR.
Touches of a vivid color on a tai
lored costume of darkest blue, green
or brown serge faap many smart
suits of the moment. Occasionally.
but not often, there is a bit of color!
somewhere on the skirt, but as a
rule, a narrow collar of bright-red
velvet or moire upon a navy blue
revers and cuffs being of the cloth
itself, is considered quite sufficient

pire girdle as now adapted is abso
lutely round, neither lowered in
front n.or brought up . toward the
shoulder line in back. Needless to
state the f-i Uion can be folio -.red ty
women of any build, while fo- the
average young girl it is charming.
RKCOVERING OLD GOWNS. -
To completely, do away with any
possibility of an old gown being , rec
ognized, the chiffon or marquisette
covering may be of a contrasting col
or with the foundation or else be
many tones deeper than the satin.
In the girdle should then be folded
the two different shades to empha
size the colorings more surely.
Foulard gowns are to be every bit
as popular as last year not more
popular for it would be impossible
for any one material to be more
fashionable than was the foulard
frock of a year ago. For hot weath-
INSURRECTOS LOSE AGAIN.
Following the receipts of corrected
details concerning the battle at Casas
Grandes, a town of. about 500 peo

where SO men were killed last Mon
day, news reached here of a fight at
noon yesterday at Agua Prieta, on
the border at across the river from
Five hundred insurrectos attacked
300 federal troops, but were repulsed
with a total of 35 dead and wounded
on both sides. The fighting was short
and the insurrectos, armed only with
rifles, soon scattered under the fire of
a machine gun.
15 AMERICANS KILLED.
What is believed to be a reliable
report of the casualties at Casas Gran

M A " V OFKICKR ACCEPT.
Washington, March 13. Officers o?
the organized militia are giving prompt
response to the war department's in
vitation to participate in the 'military
operations planned along the southern
frontier. Already 1.209 officers of the
national guard have accepted the invi
taUon. This represents responses from
only 21 states, or less than half the
members of the union. Illinois stands
first in the number of officers accept
ing the invitation, 195 being offered.
New York ranks second with 168, and
the announcement that more accept
ances are to follow; California is third
with 153, and from the far-off territory
of Hawaii come acceptances from five.
MEI.EXTI.RSS WAR BEGUN.
Mexico City, March 13. Thoroughly
aroused by the spread of brigandage
and vandalism incident to the revolu
tion led by Francisco I. Madero, and de
termined to protect property, the Diaz
government this week will begin to
wage against the lawless element a
pitiless war of extermination.
Resurrecting a provision of the Mex
ican constitution not used in 15 years,
and acting under its authorization, the
government will set aside for 6ix months
certain personal guarantees. Those de
tected in the act of highway robbery, of
raiding a village or farm, or train
wrecking,, or cutting telegraph or tele
phone wires, or even of removing a
spike from a railroad track or throw- i
ing a stone at a train, will be summar-1
irly shot by those making tlie arrest
