A mandamus action brought in the district court by the city of Coffey ville against the county clerk, has raised a question of great interest to cities of the first class under the com mission rule in Kansas. The Coffey ville officials presented a levy of 3.85 mills for general running expenses and the county clerk declined to put the levy on the tax rolls, holding that the law held cities of Kansas to a levy of 2 mills. A mandamus action to compel him to place the levy on the rolls was brought and this Judge Flaanelly now has under considera tion. The contention of Coffeyville is that the levy limit was abrogated, so far as cities of the first class oper ating under the commission plan, are concerned, but local lawyers are in clined to think this contention has no foundation, and that it was not the intention of the law-makers to turn a set of commissioners loose with un restricted taxing power.

Chat on Interesting Topics of Many Kinds, by a Recognized Authority For a Bride-Elect. So many of my letters are from just the dearest girls In the world who count themselves among the bread winners; and every once and a while some one of them Is married, and then all her good friends want to do all they can in way of showers and wedding gifts. When such an occa sion comes I have many queries as to how and what should be done. Now this Is the way ten girls In an office did when one of their number was to marry a young doctor with very little money but a splendid fellow for all that. They called a meeting and de cided that at the most three dollars apiece was all they could spare for both weddmg gift and a shower, so It resolved Itself - Into this admirable plan. They Invited the bride-to-be to spend a Saturday afternoon with them at the home of one of the girls and, when the tea was served, they pre sented the honored guest with a half dozen teaspoons, a half dozen forks and a half dozen pearl-handled knives and told her this was her wedding present from the ten. They selected a stock pattern, so that at any time more silver could be added, and they left the marking to be done as the bride wished. I think this was a most sensible and satisfactory thing all around and the combination of funds made a fine showing, much more prac tical than If each girl had tried to put her three dollars Into a separate gift.

In small or large squares or In single flowers that necessarily vary In shape, but tend toward general roundness as a whole. Now there are articles for the house beautiful that demand an upright or tall, slender motif, such as are shown in these illustrations. They belong to all who care to trace or transfer them and to the more experienced, who can enlarge them. They will be found ap plicable .to lampshade panels, to such small articles as the fancy-work bag, and sash curtain and table runner and to many small crash hangings for the library and the boudoir. Also It will be possible to use these on various beaten brass articles and as pyrogra phic outlines for wood, leather or vel vet. - The square outlines of the conven tional rose and the more rounded tree design sve especially planned for those each with a tube of library paste and an envelope containing a Dutch figure cut into a puzzle, the bits were to be pasted upon the blue background when the picture was completed.

The refreshments consisted of nut bread sandwiches with porcelain mugs of piping hot chocolate topped with whipped cream, and delicious creamed finnan haddie In ramakins. There were charming place cards in shape of wind mills and the table centerpiece was a large wooden shoe filled with golden glow. The doilies were of blue denim, fring ed all around with the hostess' mono gram done In white In the center of each. An Autumn Luncheon. At a country house, just before be ing closed for the season, there was a delightful luncheon given for eight city guests. Every thing was sugges tive of the fall; the flowers were asters and the centerpiece was a brown basket filled with all sorts of fruit.

The effect was lovely and all exclaimed "How pretty!" For prizes the hostess had arranged bas kets of vegetables and fruit all grown on the place, and put up daintily with flowers on top. MADAMS: MERRL Light old rose tints are genuinely girlish colors for millinery purposes. Children's silk socks are embroidered In small detached flowers in self tones.

Dull silver slippers will be worn quite as much as the white on sum mer evenings. The bandana handkerchief cap Is In good repute this year, and is seen ac companying many of the smartest bathing sults In suede shoes one sees taupe, old nattier, wood rose, all dark browns and blues, and, of course, black. Fash ionable women have a pair for each handsome gown. wno stencil, and It will be seen at a glance that they can be carried out In one color or in two. The rose Itself may be a dull pink, with the stem re produced in dull leaf green. All of the tree is green except the central portion of the upper bead. More suggestive of embroidery are the cattail and Iris, both of which are intended for quick work in long flat Britches afker the Japanese. Very fre quently, when the outlines have been done in black to produce an effect quickly, jnst such stitches as are here shown are hastily placed within leaves and petals; just a few to produce the color, for instance, or the purple Iris or the rich brown of the cattail, as is desired. All of these designs will serve also as models from which to paint upon Japanese burlap paper for lampshades. or upon parchment, and their outlines will suggest the similar treatment of other flowers. done to meet Indian sentiment if the growing restlveness ot the natives is to be offset has at last dawned on John Bull. - So in addition to giving titles to prominent men and admitting more Indians to the viceroy's council.

Alongside this Oriental palace of na tional Interest the London county council is building a huge county-hall, so before long the south side of the Thames will lose its present sordid appearance and rival the Victoria em bankment side, with its parliamentary buildings and great hotels. To make the building stand out un mistakably, it is proposed by ex-Government Architect Chisholm of Ma dras to cover the domes and minarets of the museum with white tiles. There are some financial difficulties to be met, for the British taxpayer is to be called on to buy the site, find fresh accommodation for the present occupier, and to pay an annual sub sidy. But as the scheme is backed by Lord Curson, Lord Roberts, Sir JIan cherjee Bhownagree and a host ol others notable it is sure to mate:illze. NOW THE HUMANITARIAN HAT New French Models Now Being Shown Imitate the Plumage of Birds in Ribbons. New York. The vogue of ribbon plumage now extensively seen in Paris millinery will appeal irresistibly to the humanitarian woman. All kinds of birds are imitated in shaded rib bon, silk and velvet, the colors and form of the most beautiful plumage being carried out to perfection.

Two cardboard discs, cov ered with velvet and Bet with cabochon glass that has the gleam of jewels. are used to imitate tne eyes anil make effective pieces of display. As a model for the woman who loves the tones of bird plumage but who will not sacrifice any form of Hat With Imitation Wings, oird life for her own decorative pur poses, this humanitarian imitation of the feathered world in shot ribbon and silk Is likely to prove one of the most favored forms of trimming for the sea sonJ FLY PAPER STOPS CRITICISM Hoosier Daughter-in-Law Is Fined $10 for Use of a Novel Gag.
