Alaska's Bald Eagles Vanishing.
"In a very short while there will
not he a bald eagle in Alaska, at the
rate these birds are now being killed
off," said John 13. Traintor of Sitka, in
an interview at Washington. "During
Ijist summer bounties were paid to
men who shot and killed bald eagles.
It is snhl that some 15,000 birds were
killed. That is a high rate, and If It
continues lor many more months the
time will soon be at hand when Alaska
will be completely rid of the bald
eagle. Tire largest specimens of this
bird come from Alaska and the Northwest.

a reed (ailed papyrus, which grew
abundantly in marshy places. And

from. They took slices of the reed,
cut them as thin as they could, and
then luld them side by side ; then they
arranged another layer on top. When
dried and rubbed smooth It made a
kind of paper which could be written
Bright Beads on Black.
Beads have been for a time relegat
ed, as a trimming, to the cheaper
type of dress, but have now been
brought back for use on the more ex
clusive models. Colored jewel effects
in the shades seen in garnets, rubies
aud emeralds are introduced into dull
black dresses. The designs are massed
in Interesting ways so that the
effect of this trimming, especially in
the evening, Is very beautiful, though
It needs to be designed and carried out
with artistic skill.
