Freaks in Christmas gifts were even more numerous than ever this year, but few recipients were able to boast of something so unusual as a baby lion. One of the cosmopolitans who frequent the Cafe des Beaux Arts, and is a friend of its proprietor, Louis Bus tanoby, and Mrs. Bustanoby, received from Africa a few days ago a baby lion. He gave it to Mrs. Bustanoby for a Christmas gift She naturally was delighted. The kittenish thing was playful and affectionate and* was so much fun— for a little while. But the baby lion did uot last in the Bustanoby house hold through Christmas day. Lion kittens are not among the sstablished furnishings or garnishment ideals of a New York apartment. They ma'-e friends with the bearskin rugs, try to bite the animals in pictures on the wall and regard jumping on th plane w-ith claws stretched, so that they may not fall, as lelightful sport Mrs. Bustanoby’s lion lasted as a companion about three hours. Now he is among friends in a Long Island private menagerie where probably he is happier. The Bustanoby apartment is beginnning to look the sem as be fore his arrival.—New York Herald.

THOUSANDS DEAD AND INJURED In Ruins of Avezzano 4.000 Persons Were Buried Alive; King Emman uel Directs Work. Rome—The toll of dead and injured in the great earthquake that has swept over central and southern Italy has not yet been made up, hut ad vices reaching Rome indicate the over growing extent of the disaster. Towns with thousands of inhabitants have been overthrown and from some of these come details which show an immense loss of life. Filled With Dead. Avezzano, via Rome.—Avezzano is filled with dead, wounded and wreck ed homes. It is like the ruins of a cemetery. Those whv escaped the destruction caused by the earth quake went heroically to work to res cue those penned under the fallen walls. Nearly all the civic officials of Avezzano, incuding the mayor, the under prefect, the judges, the com mander of the carbineers, parish priests, monks and nuns perished. The college, with more than 100 girl students, collapsed. The governor of prisons, jailers and the doctors and patients in the hospitals were carried down in the wreckage. Twenty Towns Destroyed. So far as is known, about twenty towns have been absolutely leveled. ' while an almost equal number suffer ed serious damage. In all these places persons were killed or injured. King Victor Emmanuel himself direct ed the work at Avezzano, where the piteous appeals of persons caught be neath wreckage could be plainly heard. It is estimated that in Avezzano 4,000 persons are buried alive, some of them school children, in an institu tion which collapsed. Only four sol diers of the garrison of 400 in the town escaped when the barracks fell Sora with its population of 20,000 was almost entirely destroyed. All the municipal and government authori ties perished. Four hundred and fifty bodies already have been taken from the ruins there and a large number of injured are under treatment. Messina Horror Eclipsed. London.—A news dispatch received here from Rome says that the mem ber of the Chamber of Deputies for Lipari has telegraphed to the capital that the disaster surpasses the Mes sina catastrophe, the ruin is more widespread and the injury to life and limbs will be greater. Cannot Estimate Dead. Rome.—Demolished or partly de molished towns dot that part of Italy j from Naples northward to Ferrarra and crosswise the peninsula from the Tyrrenbian to the Adriatic seas, over which the earthquake passed. Thousands of dead lie beneath the mounds of debris, which once were dwellings, churches and public insti tutions. which crumbled under the earth's vibrations. Not even an esti mate of the aggregate fatalities is ob tainable. as numerous places are still isolated, owing to the severance of telegraphic, telephonic and railroad communication. It is known, however, that Avezzano is a necropolis, and that also in Sora. some twenty-five miles to the southeast, a large num her of lives were lost. In Avezzano and vicinity it is estimated that 15,000 perished and that the dead in Soro will total 1,000. Destruction Everywhere. A tour of the towns and villages around Lake Fuclno disclosed vast destruction. The town of Magliano. in the territory of the Marsi. seems to have been ripped open. Its historic belfry, which rose about 300 feet, col lapsed. In the church below, all the chapels were ruined except that of the Savior, where an immense cruci fix is standing intact, while everything about is scattered and broken. At Pescina the cathedral belfry and the house of the bishop have entirely disappeared. No trace of Monsignor Madnoli. the bishop of Pescina. and twenty Carmelites living with him. has been found and it is feared that all have perished. Hundred Left in Avezzano. London.—A dispatch to the Morning Post from Rome says: “In the Marsi. the region around Lake Fucino, at Avezzano there are 20.000 victims of the earthquake Fifteen other towns in the Marhi have been destroyed and others damaged. Of the 12,000 in habitants of Avezzano, only 100 sur vive.” Panama Protests to British. Panama.—The republic of Panama has filed a note of protest with the British minister, resident, against the violation of her neutrality last month, when British and Japanese warships entered Panaman waters to take on coal and supplies. Kansas Welcomes Exiles. Topeka, Kas.—Establishment of an immigration agency which would wel come to Kansas farms workers of Eu rope was recommended to the state legislature by Gov. Arthur Capper. Autos Effect Car Business. San Francisco.—Common second hand automobiles, which compete with street cars for 5-cent fares, are cited by the United Railroads here as the reason it will make no extensions this year. The company recently cancelled an order for 250 new cars. Rob Bank and Kill Deputy. Muskogee. Okla.—Bandits robbed the bank of Terlton, Okla., killed e deputy sheriff and escaped with $3. 000, according to a message received Costumes for the Winter Promenade THAT particular kind of fur-cloth (or "fabric-fur.’‘ as some people prefer to call it), known as "Pomoire," is shown here made up into a costume for the winter promenade. V :h high collar and cuffs of fitch fur and smart fasten ing of cord and buttons, it reflects something of the military modes. But the jacket, or short coat, is strikingly original, topping off the straight scant underskirt and long full tunic with which all the world of fashion is more than familiar. The coat merits study, as it is un like any other without departing from the lines that are decreed as correct for this season. It is double-breasted, short in front and sloping downward toward the sides. At the back it is lengthened into a square tab which extends somewhat below the middle of the entire length of the figure. The sleeves are straight and loose and a diminutive cape extends over them md across the back. It terminates at each side of the front in the jacket. Following the line of the cape a flat, :urn-over collar lies below the stand ng collar of fur. By this arrangement :he fur collarette may be made sepa -ately aDd not always worn. There is a slight blousing of the front of thf jacket at the waist line and the merest hint of a slope inward at the sides. One could not ask a better or more graceful management of the fashion able silhouette. But the fabric-furs really look best when used with smooth-faced cloths in making up a costume. With skirt or tunic bordered with Pomoire. and a short coat of it a fine combination results. One of the smartest of cloth gowns shows a plain skirt with long narrow triangles of the fabric-fur let in, one at each side of the front, one at each side of the back and one at the center back. The short coat of cloth is lengthened by a skirt sewed to it and cut to ripple about the bottom. It ex tends to the knees, but not across th* front of the figure, as it hangs frou the sides and back of the short jacket There is a band of Pomoire, whicl forms a border about the skirt of the coat. Cuffs and long revers ar© also made of it. For wear in mild climates the cos tume trimmed with fur-cloth or using fur-cloth with plain cloth in its com position, is the most pleasing of the season's new productions. A Few Novelties in Hosiery NOT many novelties in hosiery are in evidence, fashion inclining still to favor the plain, firmly woven stock ing of silk. But for those who like a little eccentricity occasionally some new features have been brought out in the weaving of hose, and for dressy wear there is something to report of hosiery woven in lace patterns and in two-color combinations. Plain hose of black or colored silk with heel, foot and toe re-enforced, and hose similarly woven in lisle thread or cotton, of finely twisted thread, are the only varieties that prove interest ing to the great majority of women. It is likely, however, that the new silk hose woven in a lace pattern over the instep and ankle will come in for much favorable consideration with the advent of spring. Stockings of this kind show a panel of openwork, usu ally in striped effects, at the front, that is very pretty. The catchiest of the novelties in silk hose is a double stocking. The underhose is of plain silk in a color. White, light blue, flesh, lavender, and pink or even light green, supplies the color background. Over this is a stocking of very open-meshed net in block. When flesh or pink is used to? the foundation it is hardly no ticeable when tne stocking is on, and the effect is that of an open meshed net stocking with the pink flesh of the leg showing through each mesh. The colored foundations are presumably to be chosen to match the gown, and for summer wear this is a novelty that may flourish. The com bination of black and white, worn with oxfords or slippers, ought to look es pecially well with white dresses. Another attractive color introduc tion is managed by weaving the foot and lower part of the leg in black silk and the upper part (beginning at the middle of the calf) in a color. Stock ings showing black combined with al! the light colors make an appeal on the strength of pretty color combina [ tions. All the visible portion of this hosiery, with either low or high shoes | is black. Silk hose in black and all colors, embroidered with small flower designs in self-color are not new but are always in favor. Occasionally small blossoms in contrasting colors are to be found on black stockings. Among the finest hosiery smart white clock ing appears as a finish on black silk. But the strongest tendency of the fashion is away from contrasts in the matter of decorations. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. For Shiny Serge. When a dark serge suit or dress gets shiny-looking with wear, sponge it well with hot vinegar, and press it in the usual wray. No odor of vinegax will remain. Color Effect on Dew. Dew is a great respecter of colors. Take pieces of glass or board and paint them yellow, green, red and black. Expose them at night, and it will be found that the yellow will be covered with moisture, the green will be damp, but that the red and black will be perfectly dry. Responsibility Ended. Hue youngster’s grandmother and aunt had been visiting him, Mrs. Homer Hoch of Marion relates. He had been including them in his pray ers saying God bless each of the im mediate family and them also. The night of the day on which they left, he prayed his prayers as usual, in eluding them. Then he took a sec ond thought and said, “Oh, no, I foi got.

Adv. CLASSED THEM WITH DONKEY Remark of Humorous Auctioneer Something of a Reflection on the Gathering. It was at an open-air sale of farm stock. The auctioneer had been ex patiating with his usual eloquence on the merits of the various lots. There was practically “nothing do ing,” not a single bid being forth coming for a fine lot of sheep. Just as the knight of the hammer was about to declare the animals with drawn a donkey near by brayed loudly. “Thank heavens!” muttered the auctioneer. “We've got a start at last.” That put the crowd in a good hu mor. and bidding became brisk. A good price having been reached, bring ing down his hammer, the auctioneer exclaimed: “I told you it was only necessary for one of you to set the ball a-roll ing.” IS CHILD CROSS Look. Mother! If tongue is coated, give “California Syrup o^Figs.” Children love this “fruit laxative,” and nothing else cleanses the tender stomach, liver and bowels so nicely. A child simply will not stop playing to empty the bowels, and the result is they become tightly clogged with ! waste, liver gets sluggish, stomach sours, then your little one becomes cross, half-sick, feverish, don’t eat. sleep or act naturally, breath is bad, system full of cold, has sore throat, stomach-ache or diarrhoea, hasten. Mother! See if tongue is coated, then give a teaspoonful of “California Syrup of Figs,” and in a few hours all the constipated waste, sour bile and undigested food passes out of the sys tem, and you have a well child again. Millions of mothers give “California Syrup of Figs” because it is perfectly harmless: children love it, and it nev er fails to act on the stomach, liver and bowels. Ask at the store for a 50-cent bottle of “California Syrup of Figs,” which has full directions for babies, children of all ages and for grown-ups plainly i printed on the bottle. Adv. What He Wanted. A man went to order a wedding cake the other day. “I'm getting married,” he said, “and I want a cake.” “Well, it’s the latest thing, “said the | shopgirl, “to have wedding cakes in j harmony with the bridegroom's call ing or profession. Thus a journalist has a spice cake, a musician ax. oat cake, an athlete a cup cake, a man who loafs on his friends a spouge cake, and so forth ai>d so on. What is your calling, please?” “I am a pianist.” “Then, of course,” said the girl, “you'll want a pound cake.” SYSTEM FULL OF URIC ACID— THE GREAT KIDNEY REMEDY. Two years ago I was very sick and after being treated by several of the best physicians in Clinton. I did not seem to get any better. I was confined to my l>ed. Seeing Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root adver tised. I resolved to give it a trial. After using it for three weeks, I found I was gaining nicely, so I continued until I had taken a number of bottles. 1 am now restored to health and have con tinued my labors. My system was full of Uric acid, but Swamp-Root cured me entirely. I am sixty years old. Yours very- trulv, W.C. COOK. 1203 Eighth Ave. Clinton, lows.
