Negligees From the Far East
-ESfefe. wtlu?j a Xj t i i t v yft "" " v2yE?
KIMONOS were appropriated from
Japan so long ago that we take
them as a matter of course In every
wardrobe, and now women, who have
a fancy for wearing unusual negligees,
are Indulging In other dress borrowed
from the Orient. Sometimes they take
It as they find It, and oftener they
adapt It to their own taste" in colors
and fabrics. This masquerading In
the clothes of women of far countries
proves exhilarating and the great shops
make it easy to Indulge In It they
have brought the far East near, and
they help to widen our vision and In
crease our respect for the art of
The handsome costume of black
satin, embellished with gold em
broidered ribbon, pictured above, Is a
literal translation from the original
Chinese, done in American fabrics.
Those who have had experience with
this kind of dress say It never grows
tiresome and that it Is comfortable
and convenient all these are lasting
qualities and It Is worth while to em
body them In -good black satin. It is
a modest and fascinating dress, and
may prove a rival of the kimono.
"The flower of the harem Rose-In-Bloom,"
never looked more lovely than
the pretty American who has emulated
something of her dress, as shown In
the picture. Here are full, draped trou
sers of satin with an original over-garment
of brocaded silk and accordion
platted georgette. Fringe is made of
narrow brocaded satin ribbon. The
turban has a band of the brocaded silk
and crown of plaited georgette, match
ing the coat. One can Imagine this in
rose and gold or turquoise and sliver
or other lovely color combinations, the
feet incased In mules of gold or sil
ver tissue. The costume Is not a copy
of the original but an adaptation of it,
and was presented among others de
signed by certain artists, as a gem in

Enthusiasm of the kind that pres
ages appreciation of America's scenic
wonderland and invites greater trav
el, is greeting the pathfinding trip of
A. L. Westgard, field representative
of the American Automobile Associa
tion, who is logging the longest scenic
auto highway in the world 4,500
miles in length! for the purpose of
connecting the principal national
highways in the West.
He is expected tct pass thru here
on Aug. 11, being on the last half of
the great circle 3wing, which makes a
road connecting eleven parks and tra
verses nine states, including Califor
nia, Arizona, New Mexico and Colo
rado. He will get back to Denver,
the starting point, in time to join the
official tour, which starts August 25
and will require about sixty days to
The park-to-park highway, linking
mountain heights with valleys and
cities, was suggested by the National
Park Service, given official sanction
by the American Automobile Associa
tion and is being promoted by the
National Park-to-Park Highway As
sociation, of which Gus Holm's of
Cody, Wyo., is president, Stephen T.
Mather, director of national parks,
will accompany the official party.
The pathfinder's itinerary calls for
brief visits in the following places:
Kingman and Seligman, Aug 11; Ash
Forks, Williams and the Grand Can
yon National Park, Aug. 12; Flag
staff and Winslow, Aug. 13; Holbrook

It is a, world challenge, this pro
posed movement to connect such
scenic areas as Yosemite, Grand Can
yon, Mesa Verde, Roosevelt, Yellow
stone, Mount Rainer and Glacier
parks, and means the establishment in
the West, of the international ptoy
grounds of the world. r
The Baffled Bridegroom
Finding that he had a comfortab'o
home and everything else excepting a
wife, a young Chinese gentleman of
the modern school approached one of
his friends, asking him to find a lady
who would make a good wife. The
obliging friend made inquiries and
found a certain Miss . Without
stopping to make his own inquiries
about the girl and taking his friend's
word for granted, the young man
made elaborate preparations for the
great day. At a certain hour the
bride was brought to her new home.
As soon as she stept out of her goi
geously decked sedan chair the bride
groom made off and could not be
found. After a long search, his
friends found him in a cheap tea
house and asked him why he disap
peared just as the bride alighted
from the sedan chair. And this, ac
cording to the Chinese Press, is the
poor "modern" young man's reply:
"When she left her chair, I saw she
had small feet. I thought then she
was old-fashioned and would not make
a good match for me, so I quit. What
I want is a nice, fashionable young
lady." Shanghai, North-China Her
ald. All' in One Word
As the man and the maid strolled
through the picture-gallery, the wom
an stopt before one of the exhibits.
"Oh, how sweet!", she breathed.
"I wonder what it means?" ques
tioned the young fellow, as he eyed
the pictured pair who clung together
in an attitude of love and longing.
"Oh, Charlie, don't you see?" the
girl chided tenderly. "He has just
asked her to marry him and she has
consented. It's lovely! What does
the artist call the picture?"
The young man leaned nearer and
eyed a label on the frame.
"I see!" he cried. "It's printed on
this card here 'Sold!'" Tit-Bits

LABOR DEMANDS CLOSE
MINES NEAR CANANEA
A Bisbee report states that the
Democrata mine at Cananea will clooe
down at the end of this month, accord
ing to reports from that place, on ac
count of the inability of the company
to meet the demands for increased
pay made by the Mexican union labor
The Cananea Consolidated Copper
company, the big producer of the dis
trict, while not acceding to the qp
mands of the union, will continue op
erations pending negotiations with the
Mexican government, according to the
Mining companies operating in
Mexico are under a heavier expense
than those operating on this side of
the line on account of an export tax
of 2 cents a pound on copper bullion
and a heavy import tax on coal and
fuel oils, besides other taxes paid to
the Mexican government. These con
ditions, coupled with the condition of
the copper market, are having a de
pressing effect on business in the
Sonora mining camp.
MINER WANT ADS ARE BUSI
JAPAN IN DEPLORABLE
While Japanese made millions
through its ideal position during the
war the depression that followed caus
ed enormous loses, some of the firms
losing as high as $2,000,000 in the
drop in ordinary wares. So far reach
ing has been the losses that more than
1500 people have committed suicide

into worse than slavery so that the
parents may be able to supply food
to the boys of the family, and every
method known is being used to pro
vide food to the starving people.
