There Is a governor gencrnl from "the states" Francis Hiirton Harrison, salary $20,000, term of oillco Indefinite. The population of the Philippines is probably about 10,000,000. At least 800,000 of the Inhabitants of tho principal Islnnds of tho archipelago are classed us "uncivilized." The trade with the United States Is about this: To Philippines, $7fi,000;000 ; to United States, $90,000,000. Total of Philippine exports, $150,000,000. The attitude of the Filipinos on Independence is apparently this: "Wo are grateful for your help to date. But we can take care of ourselves now. Good-by."

Hammond and plane capable of carrying a heavy load of explosives apd operated without n human guide has made a trip of 100 miles and landed close to the point It set out to reach. This Is considered to be perhaps the most frightfully de structive war contrivance, In point of potentialities, yet produced by human Ingenuity. Senator Heflin Senator James Thomas Hefiln from Alabama (portrait herewith) isn't Just like the senators elected In November. One difference consists In the- fact that he Is now functioning in that august body, while all the oth ers except Senator Carter Glass of Virginia, will have to wait until March 4 before taking their seats. The rea son Is that he was elected to 1111 tho vacancy caused by the death of tho late Senrtor John H. Bankhead. Senator Heilln has been promoted from the house, where he served eight full terms and a portion of an unex pired term. Ho was horii at Loulnn, Randolph county. Ala., April 0, 1809. "He Is a typical Southerner In man ners and dress," say most of tho sketches of him. Anyway, he Is a glass of fashion. He was a mighty champion of the cotton Interests while In the house and he ranks President Wilson high among tho greatest men of all time. Senator Ilcfler Is a college man nnd hus been admitted to the bar. He served Alabama In various capacities before being elected to the house In 1001. the Philippines Isuuro Onbnhlou Is the name of tho new Philippine Islnnds resident commissioner who will be on hnml at the next session of congress. He has been elected for a three-year term, lie Is a. lawyer In Munlla and Is an ardent advocate of the Independence of the Philippines. Tho Philippines were ceded to the United States by Spain In 1898. There was a succession of military gover nors until 1002. General Merrltt, Gen oral Otis, General MncArthur, Gcnernl Chaffee. In 1002 the ofllco of military governor was abolished and the Phil ippine commission became the gov erning body. In 1010 congress passed an net resting the legislative authority In the Philippine legislature, composed of senate and house of representatives. There are 24 senators and 00 repre sentatives. This legislature became nrcnnlzed October 10. 1010. The Phil Wireless Death Complete annihilation of enemy fleets long before they come within gun range of the New York skyscraper skyline, or the formications guard ing tho Golden Gnte, becomes a seem ing possibility as a result of recent tests by warships of the navy off the Virginia capes. For these tests a number of out-of-date bnttleshlps were used. There was not a human being on board, yet they were maneuvered hither und thither at will. Thus the battleship Ohio, of 13,000 tons, was steered and managed by wireless op erators on the battleship Indiana. The wireless-controlled ship has been developed out of the Invention of John Hays Hammond, Jr., son of a noted American engineer. The possibilities of the Idea In volved seem limitless. To supplement It, there Is wireless control of air planes, which since the war has been successfully developed. An American From Alabama IN January nnd February much of tho year's sewing is disposed of in well regulated households for these months, bring the annual sales of white goods for house furnishings nnd undcrmusllns nnd the displays of new cotton fnbrlcs for spring. At the same time tho shops accommodat ingly bring out whatever has devel oped In styles In undcrmusllns, In children's clothes nnd in women's wash dresses, especially In practical house dresses. In fashion centers also there are enlightening exhibitions of hand some wnsh dresses. In the average home It Is spring sowing, for the children that can be disposed of In the heart of winter to the best ndvantngc. One of the models turned out for the flapper Is pictured here and shows no startling departure from present stylos. Any of the plain, fairly heavy wash fabrics are sujted to It and Its appeal lies In its neat ness and girllsbncss. It hns a plaited skirt and a plain smock with three quarter length, flaring sleeves. The The Day of THE day of tho fur hut, which was duo to arrive at least a month ago, was postponed by October weather which persisted In lingering with us Into December. But every lint has Its day and, como whnt will, our fur hats nre a part of the play In Junuary and February anyway. They aro too at tractive to neglect and this season they took their responsibilities light ly; for almost all of them nre only pnrtly mnde of fur. We have fur and velvet, often with embellishment of epnrkllng bend embroidery, fur and brilliant, rich brocades, fur and em broidered fabrics; the fur providing brims for all sorts of gay and Inter esting crowns. Tho furs best liked nre the short: haired vejvety pelts, as Hudson seal, molo skin, benver, caracul, sable, squir rel und mliric. Ermine uppears occa sionally, but nearly alwuys as a trim ming, and very handsome velvet hats with knots or bows of fur, or emplace ments of fur panels on the brims, are shown umong other fur huts. Occa round neck Is finished daintily with an Inset collar of whlto batiste. For decoration, a border pattern In col ored iloss nnd very simple stltchery, finishes off the neck, tho sleeves and the bottom of the smock. It Is In this simple needlework that tho model shows n variation from Its predeces sors. There Is nlso something n llttlo new In colors that s, shades and tints have changed a trifle. . It Is noteworthy that Btylcs for young misses are growing more con servative; that they aro getting hack to something like common sense after much extravagance In the pifst season or so. Too much elaboration, too rich mnterlals, too many colors robbed the dress of young girlhood of Its own pnrtlcuhlr charm, which must always Ho on tho sldo of daintiness or simplicity; nnd charm Is tho most valuable asset of tho flapper, as It Is of all womankind. There is nothing more unpleaslng' than overdressed young girls. the Fur Hat sionally the rule of fur brims nnd fab ric crowns is reversed In models that have fur crowns and velvet brims. The handsome hat ut the top of the group pictured employs squirrel fur for Its coronet nnd shirred gray velvet for a crown. Such lints are often fin ished with n sparkling pin or orna ment of rhlnestones suggestive of frost. The soft, warm looking hot at the left has a brim that suggests tho cozy poke bonnet and Is trimmed with ribbon and fur halls. It might bo made In any of tho millinery furs. At the right a turbnn with a wide up turned brim of fur has a sectional crown of velvet and boasts a lovely plume of curled ostrich nt the hack. Such hats as these have real values to offer; for good furs outlast ninny sen sons. If cared for, find may be made to servo on other hats. conuoHT it vmuui mwuut union Depend upon it, you would Laln un speakably If you could loam with me to aeo Homo of the poetry nnd pathos, tlie tragedy and tho comedy lying In tho experience of a human soul that look out through dull gray eyes nnd that speaks in quite an ordinary tone.

"It's rather late for the children to ho mi, Isn't It?" asked the King of Clouds of Nurse Fog. Nurso Fog looked after the Mist grandchildren. They weru perfect little dears, sho thought, and they always did Just us she told them. "Yes, they need u nnp," suld Nurse Fog, nnd old Mr. Sun, who peeped from behind a cloud to sec what was going on, said: "Yes, they've been up for a long time now. They must hnvu n good long rest and give old Mr. Sun a chnticc. "My children, the dear llttlo sun beams, must get up now, nnd you know the children never get ulonff well eogethertho sunbeams und the Mist grandchildren that Is unless dear old Friend Rainbow Is riround to keep every ono smiling." Tho 311st grandchildren were tired. They had been playing for a long-time, down by the beach, over the flpean, upon people's faces everywhere Im aginable had the Mist grandchildren played. So they were perfectly happy to go to sleep for n nice long sleep wltli wonderful dreams of how they would make everything quite dump when once more Uicy were awake dreams which they knew would comu true. Old Mr. Sun was shining brightly now, smiling down upon old Mother Ocean whom he admired bo much, "We're u grent old pair," ho said. "You mnke folks cool when they Jump Into you and I make them nice and wnnn and ready for you once more as I shine down upon them on the bench." Just then, came some angry sounds from some of the waves dashing over the rocks nlong the coast. "I must see what Is happening," said Mother Ocean. Children were playing on tho snmL building beautiful castles, others vyeror In swimming, while still n few were wading and picking up nil sorts of In- "We'd Like to Go." terestlng nnd curious shells. For It was warm In this part of the ocean, fnr down South In the winter. "What is the matter?" asked Moth er Ocean of the angry waves which wore dashing an tho rocks. "Nothing," they said, roaring an grily. "But something must ho the mat ter?" questioned Mother Ocean. "You've seen us angry before," laughed the Waves, wildly, "Of course," said Mother Ocean, "but you've been ungry In a different way. You've been having mnke-be-Hevebnttles against the rocks. Neither of you have ever won and so it la fun to keep on with the ninko-bcllcvo lights. And tho wind, good old soul, always takes part, too. I know nbout those lights.

We've always been here your children; we've had to do just as you said. We've been ullowed to play when you've been perfectly willing wo should pluy nnd when you've been willing to nsk the Wind to play with us. Hut we've had to do as you and tho Wind said.
