QUAINT CONCEIT COMES BACK
Choux of Ribbon, Silk or Velvet, So
Popular Some Time Ago,
Is to Be Revived.
A quaint conceit which is being re
vived on several models Is the large
choux of ribbon or silk velvet, repeat
ing, perhaps, the note of color at the
waist and placed at the side front
about nine inches up from the foot
Iu fact, we appear to be in for a re
vival " of these contrasting choux of
silk or velvet, which were such an in
fliction some years ago. They are ap
plied to the corsage or -skirt more or
less indiscriminately, and bear no re
lation to the general design of the
Just now the idea is quite endur
able, especially when carried out as
on a white batiste frock with a V
shaped lace vest at the neck let into
a large plain vest of fine embroidered
batiste. Two large diamond shaped
pieces of lace on the shoulders head
two soft folds of batiste, which cross
over in front into a swathed waist bell
of soft mauve silk, finishing with an
enormous choux at the left front.
The skirt is on simpler lines, gath
ered into the waist. A band of the
lace is applied about a foot up from
the hem, and just above this and in a
line with that at the wa'ist is a very
large rosette bow. These touches of
mauve -were quite delightful. A simi
lar note was sounded on the white
baby hat, which had a wreath of tiny
mauve roses encircling the mob
Another model in spotted muslin
also had a little cross over bodice
folded over a soft fold of pale green
silk. The waist belt and rosette are
in pale green silk and a large flat ro
sette headed an open seam, revealing
a lace inset. These introductions of
icolored silks into white lingerie and
muslin frocks are very much to be
noted just now.

The cotton manufacture was . In
troduced into Europe by the Arabs.
Abdurahman III., about the year 930,
caused it to be commenced in Spain,
from which country It spread slowly
to other European lands. He also
established extensive manufactures of
silk and leather, and Interested him
self much in the culture of the silk

Flowers reproduced in satin and
silks are growing in popularity, es
pecially the rose, which is not only
beautiful, but easy to make. You can
develop a rose pin cushion in three
shades of pink satin ribbon gathered
double. Use one yard and three-quarters
for the shirred top and upper row
of fluting, one yard for the center row
and one and five-eighths yards for the
base. Make the center row a shade
deeper than the top and the base a
shade deeper than the center.
A. hard five-inch, cushion is used as
a foundation. This is covered with a
ribbon shirred in rows three-eighths
of an inch apart.
If you wish, the monogram of owner
may be embroidered on the top instead
of the ribbon. Then the three rows of
ribbon are applied, each overlapping
the other, to hide the stitches. Catch
the ribbon in several places to the
cushion to g'ive a more natural ap
pearance to the rose.
A base of green leaves may be add
ed if you wish.
A new idea is to deqorate a candle
stick as a rose.
Buy a simple glass candlestick and
make a pink, yellow or red rose to
drop down from the socket. Add a
spray of foliage.
Tie the rose to the base of the stick
with a green ribbon and add a rose
Roses of all sizes can be developed
from small pieces of satin and silk
for decorating the coiffure and as gar

Do not neglect -to add a spray of
foliage to all roses used for such decoration.

ROOSEVELT CARRY NEW YORK?
Eastern newspapers are greatly exercised over the. progress of Colonel
Roosevelt's campaign for the republican nomination. Those that support
him believe that he is the only republican who can be. sure cf carrying New
York, which is about the right dope, judging from the recent primary re
sults in Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, etc. It is safe to say that New York is
not different from the rest.
BAILEY LETS CAT OUT
Some of the promoters of the Clark-Harmon-Underwood campaign cabal
continue to deny its existence. A few say nothing, lacking the gall to deny a
combine as plain as the boss system behind Taft. If there were no other
proof of the team-work against Wilson, the fact that Clark and Harmon sup
ported the same delegates in Maryland would supply it, says the Los An
If that is not enough, take the frank utterance of "Oily Joe" Bailey, the
repudiated Texas senator, in the rectmt campaign in his- state, in which he
received, by the way, the worst rebuke of his career, Wilson sweeping the
decks after a struggle of education. Said Bailey, in stumping for Harmon:
"It is true that in some states Clark has been given the field against Wil
son; in others Harmon has been given the field; in still othe'rs Underwood
has been given the field. And I suppose you have heard from Georgia and
Florida in the last few days. That's no crime."
The low standard of political morality here displayed and the utter absence
of the spirit of fairness, make it a cause for gratitude that rulers of the
Bailey type are passing rapidly. But their importance consists just now in
showing that in the democratic party, as in the republican, all the reaction
ary and Wall street elements are joined in a fight against the only progressive
that is a popular national candidate and has any show of winning on election
day. . .
WJ-LD EYED LUNATICS
Under the caption "An Imbecile "Futility," Allen Kelly says:
"Congressman Smith has distinguished himself by introducing the most asin
ine bill ever offered to Congress. It says, 'No person believing in the doctrine
of anarchy, as that term is generally understood, shall be admitted to the
"The 'doctrine of anarchy to begin with, is not generally understood.
Probably not a hundred persons in the United States understand it or could
even come within a thousand miles of stating it. The wild-eyed lunatics
whom the newspapers have christened 'anarchists' haven't any doctrine,
and it would ppuzzle the Spanish Inquisition to find out what they believe.
It may be practicable to exclude European undesirables for what they are
or for what they have done, but to attempt to ascertain what they believe,
if they know the purpose of the inquiry, is to play the fool. Imagine a
Sicilian mafiaist, for instance, admitting that he believes it to be his duty to
come to America for the purpose of hunting down, and killing an enemy.
"Mr. Smith and the newspapers don't know it, and the lunatics whom they
call 'anarchists' haven't the least glimmer of suspicion of the fact, but it
is a fact that the doctrine of anarchy, as understood by the - philosophers,
such as Herbert Spencer and Pierre Proudhon not as misunderstood by such
boneheads as Smith. is concisely expressed in the Golden Rule. Nobody
else believes in that rule, however, and there is no chance that Smith's law,
if enacted, would exclude -anyone from the United States." 9
The relative mathematical abilities of boys and girls and of the white race
as compared with the black are among the subjects taken up in a monograph
just issued for distribution by the United States Bureau of Education. The
monograph is entitled "Mathematics in the Public and Private Secondary
Schools of the United States," and considers the ability of the(boys and girls
as shown in the type of the" school indicated by the title.
"It seems to be the general opinion that the average boy shows more abil
ity in methematics than the average girl, but also that he does not work
so faithfully," says the monograph. "In a mixed class this greater ability
of the boy and the greater faithfulness of the girl react most advantageously
on each other.
"Another fact that is noted is this: In elementary algebra the girl does as
good work as the boy; in geometry not nearly so good. In advanced algebra
and trigometry, the boy shows an ability which is far ahead of the girl.
Yet, we are free to confess that his greater natural ability is often outclassed
by the steady, patient endeavor of the girl. Perhaps it would be safer to say
that the girl does not show as great an ability v as the boy, even though she
may have it.
"In regard to the relative tendency of boys and girls to choose elective
courses in mathematics the answers to a questionnaire indicate that boys are
much more inclined to elect such coures than girls are."
In investigating the relative methematical ability of the colored race, a
questionnaire was sent to eleven well-known negro schools and colleges in
"The general feeling in the institutions covered by this report," says
the government monograph, "is that the difference between the races in the
matter of mathematics, in so far as any difference exist, are due to conditions
rather than to race characteristics. '
"Five of the schools feel that there is no difference due to race. Two are
of the opinion that colored students generally are not the equals of white
students. One school was not able to make any comparison. Three did not re
ply to the questions regarding a comparison of the races. Replies were made
by both white and colored teachers who have had years of experience in
colored schools and in some cases in white schools."

The Greet Conflict
& Half Century Ago Today
JANUARY 2, 1862.
The Confederates resumed their at
tack on the fort at Port Royal Ferry,
from which they had been driven and
subsequently held by the Federal ex
pedition under Commander Rodgers
and General Stevens, and succeeded
in dislodging the Union force. Un
der cover of a heavy fire from the
gunboats, the Federals recrossed the
Cootaw and withdrew to Port Royal
Harbor, leaving the fort in the pos
session of the Confederates.
The Confederate battery at Cock
pit Point, on the Potomac, was at

ROOSEVELT'S NOMINATION ASSURED
With yesterday's complete victory in Ohio, carrying with it 4S more dele
gates there can remain but little doubt of Col. Roosevelt's nomination at
Chicago on the first ballot.
It may be said that the Taft forces with considerably less than 200 pledged
delegates, have claimed almost votes enough to nominate for some time past
and now "claim more than sufficient delegates . to nominate President Taft.
These outlandish claims cannot be credited by well informed people and
are evidently made solely for the effect it has on those who believe what
they read without investigation. For the information of our readers The
Examiner has compiled the results to date. By actual count of the states
pledged on May 3rd, Roosevelt had 361 delegates. Since then there have been
secured, Kansas, 18; Maryland, 16; Minnesota; 24; Missouri, 2 additional;
Texas 32; Washington, 14; California, 2G; Idaho, h, and Ohio 48, in all
making a grand total of 549 delegates, or 9 more than enough to nominate.
New Jersey will probably add to this at least 20, although like Ohio, the
state may give the entire 28 to Roosevelt, which would put him far. in lead.
-These figures only included the actual Roosevelt delegates, and does not
include any estimates of the large numbers of votes he is sure to receive from
the contested delegations, all of which might be conceeded to Taft as need
less to Roosevelt success. ,
It is also reasonably certain that a large number of the 90 votes of New
York will go to Roosevelt in the Chicago convention although 83 of these are
claimed by Taft.
It may be said that every delegate Roosevelt has secured has been fought
for and won, while the Taft forces simply make claims to everything not
now in the Roosevelt column and also to some that is. It is entirely reason
able to predict that many of the so-called Taft delegates will vote for Mr.
Roosevelt when they fully realize his strength, and the utter hopelessness
of Taft's candidacy, and when the stampede begins, to Roosevelt in Chicago
the nomination will be made by unanimous consent, or nearly so.
The result in Ohio yesterday certainly sealed Taft's fate, even if there
had been doubts up to that time. In fact the president frankly admitted this
according to the Assqciated Press dispatches of the past few days.
