To Teach Kansas Farmers. "Kansas, first in total wheat out put; 32nd In acre yield." This is the banner to be carried through the state next month on a wheat special train under the auspices ol the Kan sas state agricultural college and, probably, every railroad in the state. The Rock Island's train, conducted by H. M. Cottrell, agricultural commis sioner, of the road, probably will leave Manhattan July 10. President H. J. Waters, Mr. Cottrell, Dean E. H. Webster, W. M. Jardine, head of the agronomy department and J. H. Miller superintendent of extension met," at Hays to discuss the details. The proposed train will be the most complete demonstration machinery ever sent out in the Interest of wheat. It will consist of one flat car for the latest improved farm machinery, with men to explain every attachment; a baggage car for wheat exhibits; four day coaches for lectures; a sleeping car and two dining cars. In two of the coaches will be lectures dealing with wheat growing, conserving moisture, selecting seed, and handling the product to produce the best flour. In another car will be talks to ex plain the baking qualities for the women, and in two others lectures to teach boys and girls to do all these things and, in addition, how to select good wheat, the grading, etc The farmers will hear how to get good seed and where to get it at a cost that will not be prohibitive. There will be shocks of wheat, too, to show the yields from different methods of soil treatment, the most striking examples possible. In all this train will cover 1,500 miles. It will be out three weeks. The Santa Fe is almost cer tain to co-operate as it always has done, and other roads doubtless will do the same. The press of the state will be asked to help. Every inter est, the bankers, merchants, agri cultural papers, schools, churches will be taken into the biggest wheat educational campaign the state ever has had. The agricultural college will not be finished much before August 10. Note Every paper in Kansas is asked to help in spreading to farmers information about the wheat cam paign. The publicity department at the college will supply everything re quired. Wichita Dentist Plants New Teeth. A Wichita dentist has perfected an invention which has aroused the in terest of the entire dental world. It it nothing less than the implanting of a tooth in the jawbone of bones to which the gums are attached. The root is made of iridoplatinum wire and is inserted into the cavity drilled in to the bone. The bone grows around the root and in a few weeks the artificial root is as firmly imbedded as if nature had done the job. Will Hold a Big Celebration.

Rain had fallen all around Bennington the last two weeks, but none here in time to make a bumper wheat crop. Most of the wheat has headed out but very little of it is tall enough to be bound.

Peabody to Have Big Celebration. The Peabody Anti-Horse Thief as sociation is this year going to hold its annual picnic on July 4, and Is going to provide a Fourth of July celebra tion such as it never has had before LINEN is perhaps more used than any other material when em- household purposes and wearing ap parel. Much as we use linen nowadays,- for our table, our beds and our bodies, It Is not a new medium for embroidery. It is ages old, as for centuries linen embroidery has been a domestic in dustry in foreign lands. This old work is now being copied widely and the special work belong ing to different lands is easily recog nized. Thus the old Spanish, Italian and Greek embroidery on the linen was chiefly done In one color a pur ple red. A great variety of colors mixed with gold and silver thread 1b characteristic of Oriental work. A similar richness of coloring, but generally without the gold and silver touches, marks the Hungarian, Slav, and Swedish peasant work. Old blue red and yellow are the predominating tones. Much of the Italian embroidery of the sixteenth and seventeenth cen turies was done on very fine linen sometimes in colors, but more often in white, with intricate stitchery and much cut and openwork. The modern girl, however, rarely has patience for this exquisite stitchery of the olden times. Her work is more splashy and less beautiful. For this reason the quality of the linens used today are changed, the threads being round and coarser, so they can easily be counted to make easier the copying of the design. The old embroideries, especially the Ital ian ones, were done on very fine linen. In choosing a linen to embroider it should be hand-bleached, and without much dressing. The threads should be round, especially if any drawn work is to be combined with the em broidery. There are special art lin ens for fancy- work which are quite distinct from the linens used for sheets and pillow cases. Unless you are sure you can detect cotton threads and imperfect weaving, it Is well to leave the selection of your linen for an elaborate piece of embroidery to a saleswoman in the art needlework department. She will gladly advise you the best grade for your special purposes. - Linen embroidery may be classed under two heads that where threads are counted, for the material accord ing to a pattern done on checked pa per, as in all cross-stitch work. Slav embroideries and various kind of can vas work; the other where the pat tern is drawn on the material and the embroidery worked without regard to the threads of the material, as in Eng lish embroidery, satin stitch, Kensing ton, Chinese and Madeira embroi deries. No linen embroidery covers the en tire ground of the material, but leaves spaces of the linen for a background to the design. There are interesting imported lin ens to be found in most establish ments that are adapted to both kinds of linen embroidery. Besides the Irish linen there are Spanish, Silesian and Algerian linens for small stitches and fine work, while the coarser lin ens of Cuba, Ceylon and Batavia are Dainty Costumes THE dainty frock at the left is of white voile made np over pink taffeta. It is in empire style, - shirred at the top and again at the bottom, where it is finished with a ruffle edged with Irish lace. It is trimmed with folds of the pink taffeta and Irish lace insertion. - The one on the largest girl is of white pique. The skirt is encircled with a wide band of English embroi dery and with tucks which are em broidered wlth dots. The jacket la used for bolder effects and coarser stitchery, and Russian linens and the different kinds of canvas gives stitches of any desired size. Most of these can be found in white cream and ecru,- and many of the so called art linens come in varied tones of any given shade. Though the old-time embroideries were rarely done on cotton goods we think nothing of putting handsome stitchery on cotton materials sheer and opaque. It is better, however, to make such embroidery sketchy, as the material is not worth fine work. Unfrayed Scallops. Some housekeepers object to the buttonholed scallop on embroidery, be cause It frays in washing. This can be overcome in several ways. The surest is to buttonhole a second time over the purled edge, when the scal lop has been worked and cut out. Another method is to run the out line of the scallop with machine stitching before buttonholing. Or in cutting leave a narrow margin and turn back under the scallop and hem to the material. If these are too much trouble, at least wash the linen before cutting out. The material shrinks and is much less likely to fray. Where the entire piece Is not washed, the embroidered edge can be dipped In lukewarm wa ter for a few minutes, then Ironed dry and later cut out close to the purled edge. New Trimming Features. Masses of foliage In the color of the hat, plied over the crown. Buckles, carbochons and other orna ments made of lace Tuscan and studded with corals or turquoises. Butterflies and fans formed by wide, pleated satin ribbon. Heavy cord-shirred effects in ribbon garnitures of all kinds. Fancy brim facings of layers of vari colored net or chiffon. Wide, flat ostrich trimming bands overlaid with roses. Handsome brim bands of braid, jew eled or jet embroidered. White for all occasions is to be worn this spring and summer. All kinds of laces are in use heavy ones and the daintiest and filmiest. Poke bonnets are again in favor and the severe jockey cap is a novelty. High, small turbans are trimmed with cabochons of garden flowers on the side. Shorter sleeves are looked for In the models that are to be worn in the com ing summer. Higher and higher mount the toques, higher and higher soar the feathery adornments. There is a combination of French knots and colored beads seen on the new waists that is attractive. As for embroidery, French knots are distinctly the thing, whole patterns be ing worked out in them. trimmed in the same way and orna mented with pearl buttons. The col lar is of English embroidery bordered with the dotted bands. The charming little coat is of light blue alpaca. One side of the front la turned back to form a large revers and the coat is trimmed in front and back with straps of the material fast ened with gold buttons. The collar and cuffs are of guipure finished, to look their best, with little plalfings of fine lace.

DOCTOR PRESCRIBES CUTICURA REMEDIES "I wish to let you know of a couple of recent cures which I have made by the use of the Cuticura Remedies. Last August, Mr. of this city came to my office, troubled with a severe skin eruption. It was dermatitis in Its worst form. It started with a slight eruption and would affect most parts of his body, thighs, elbows, chest, back and abdomen and would terminate in little pustules. The itch ing and burning was dreadful and he would almost tear his skin apart, try ing to get relief. I recommended all the various treatments I could think of and he spent about fifteen dollars on prescriptions, but nothing seemed to. help him. "In the meantime my wife, who was continually suffering with a slight skin trouble and who had been try ing different prescriptions and meth ods with my assistance, told me phe was going to get some of the Cuticura Remedies and give them a fair trial. But as I did not know much about Cuticura at that time I was doubtful whether it would help her. Her skin would thicken, break and bleed, es pecially on the fingers, wrists and arms. I could do nothing to relieve her permanently. When Bhe first ap plied the warm baths of Cuticura Soap and v applications of Cuticura Ointment she saw a decided improve ment and in a few days she was com pletely cured. "I lost no time in recommending the Cuticura Remedies to Mr. , and this was two months ago. I told him to wash with warm baths of the Cuticura Soap and to apply the Cuti cura Ointment generously. Believe me, from the very first day's use of the Cuticura Remedies he was greatly relieved and today he is completely cured through their use. I have great faith in the Cuticura Remedies and shall always have a good word for them now that I am convinced of their wonderful merits." (Signed) B. Jj. Whitehead, M.
