Pretty Frocks for Evening Wear.
Nearly nil girls look their best In
the silky and filmy frocks thej' wear
for evening, and of course they are
likely to know this. Therefore, every
once in n while the up-to-date young
person is apt to Insist on a new party
frock, and to keep matters stirring un
til she gets It. But she Is not exacting
as to material, as n rule. Pretty col
ors and smart style In the making are
the things that captivate her.
It Isn't a bad Idea to encourage the
acquirement of a new evening or after
noon frock, especially as an Incentive
to the nvernge girl who needs to lenrn
to sew. Some mothers agree to fur
nish all the materials which their
daughters will make up for themselves
furnishing ono garment at a time.
This Is wise management on the part
of the mother, who wishes to train her
girls In planning and shopping and
sewing, for their own future good.
Three Classes of Hats.
Three hats belonging to three classes
of millinery Invite you to familiarize
yourself with their distinct character
istics. Otherwise, when you go out to
buy you are liable to make a mistake,
unless you Intend to invest in an as
sortment of millinery. Some enterpris
ing and smart shops now place a small
tag In each hat for the enlightenment,
of bewildered customers. This little
tng bars a legend which places the
hat In the right class. These little tags
say with finality: "This hat Is for
sports wear," or "This hat is for trav
eling," or "This hat Is for afternoon
wear" and "This hat Is for morning,"
etc., etc. At this rate we may expect a
hat for high noon; we already have
them for the "wee sma' hours."
In the group shown here the hat at
the' left Is for sports wear. It Is of
oyster-white silk in a heavy crepe
weave, with feayly colored disks to give
It the right vivacity. The faclug Is of
white milliners' braid, and a single long
and handsome quill appears to have lit
on the brim. In millinery, as In other
sports clothes, there In no limit to the
courage of color.
For street w?ar or traveling or morn
ing wear, the small turban of black
satin and straw braid demonstrates
that a tint muy scorn color of any kind
and yet achieve the pinnacle of smart
ness. This shape Is a miracle of be
comlngncss and It is finished In the
best possible way with a satln-llned
curling quill In black, fastened by a
strap of satin with Hatln-covered but
tons nt the ends.
The dressy hat ut the right la all In
A pretty evening dress which does
not look too dllllcult to copy Is shown
In the accompanying picture. It has
a plain taffeta underskirt and a net
overdress, a low-necked underbodlce
with net overbodlc and short sleeves
of net. Patterns of similar designs are
furnished by all the standard pattern
companies. The not bodice Is square
In the neck and the overdress Is
flounced over the hips. A bit of sil
ver laco finishes the bottom of the
ovorsktrt at the back and front.
Among the new designs for evening
dresses there Is a captivating one made
of wide soft satin ribbon and white
net. The skirt Is flounced with alter
nating ruffles of the ribbon and groups
of narrow frills of the net. The short
sleeves are of net frills and there Is a
net surplice with a bit of the satin
ribbon at the front and back.

Pontlr.e Coats.
On the Southland trains many a
smart motor coat Is to be seen worn
temporarily as a traveling wrap, or
carried over the arm of maid or foot
man and disposed of In the drawing'
room compartment with the hand lug
gage. It Is surprising how many of
these coats are of pontine a material
with glossy, waxed outer surface and
Inner surface of soft silk or satin
sometimes- of cloth. And the colors
are wonderful. Pontine coats with
borders of fur are especially In favor.
and since this material Is warm, as
well as light, atid sheds water as suc
cessfully as any actual leather coat
fabric, It Is much In demand for mo
toring wraps. One of the Iiandsom
est pontine coats of the season falls
in ripples below a graceful crossed
sash-glrdle and Is edged at the foot
with a broad band of beaver matching
the beaver collar and deep cuffa.
Black Silk Jersey Kilts.
Separate skirts of black silk Jersey
knife plaited are very popular for wear
with sports blouses, especially If the
blouses be of a brilliant hue.
Washington. If the houso acccptB
tho amendments to tho postolllco ap-,
prlatlon bill approved by tho senate
concerning tho shipment of liquor
thero will be n completo prohibition
against tho Interstate shipment of j
liquor Into dry stales for bovernge !
purposes. I
Tho "bono dry" amendment wan of
fered by Senator need, who at i:
"This amendment was designed to
bring about real prohibition; It will
stop the shipment of limited quanti
ties of liquor into dry states. Thoro
aro many states which allow tho pur-
chaso of up to two quarts periodically.
My amendment Is Intended to atop
this. Thero aro a lot of people who
voto to prohibit other pcoplo from ,
drinking on the theory that they can
still get what they want themselves.
"This nmendment will put an end to
that condition, and the people who
want prohibition must voto for It, and
those who don't want it must vote Just
aB honestly.
"1 do not think thero Is any ques
tion of tho legality of congress deal- (
lng with tho question In this way
The opinion of the supremo court In
tho West Ylrglnla cases seems to mo
to glvo congress tho most complete
Jurisdiction. That Is tho opinion of
tho ablest lawyers in tho senato."
Senator Beckham of Kentucky, pro
hlbltlonlst, voted against tho Reed
amendment. Ho issued a lengthy
statement, In which ho said that
moderately effectivo enforcement of
prohibition laws Is best achieved by
not making the prohibition too drastic.
Ho said that he thought tho Reed
amendment was detrimental to pro
hibitory legislation, because It Is too
drastic, and added that he not only
had voted against it, in tho interests
of effective prohibition, but that he
thought the cause of prohibition would
be advanced by Uio defeat of the Reed
amendment In the house. ,
Senator Reed is not a prohibition
ist, and tho dry loaders In both houses
look upon his amendment as an antl
prohibition measure, believing that If
It Is enforced prohibitory laws will bo
come so unpopular that somo may be
repealed, and some states, now on tho
verge of prohlbltlonfNvlll refrain from
approving it.
All Guards Ordered Home. ,
Washington. Demobilization of tho
cntlro National Guard force remaining
In tho federal service on tho border,
Including troops from Texas, Now
Mexico and Arizona, waB ordered by
the War department. General Funs

soon as ho can complete arrange
ments for tho movement.
Tho order affects about 50,000
guardsmen, who were not Included In
a previous order which recalled abo-jt
25,000 men.
General Funston now has approxi
mately 50,000 regular troops distri
buted along tho line an1 tho order Is
construed to mean that ho has rccom
mended tho withdrawal of the Na
tional Guard, as ho believes tho reg
