If we were asked the reason why "Viavi" performs such wonderful cures, we would be honest, and 6ay, ""We don't know." Ask a scientist why an apple invariably falls down ward, and he would say it was due to the law of Gravitation. That is about all he could tell you. It is no more natural for bodies to gravitate toward the center of the earth tb.n it is for " Viavi " to cure tL dir- eases peculiar to women. It is not a drug, but a food which nourishes and strengthens the affected parts, thereby enabling nature to throw off the disease. Our Health Book sent free. . KANSAS YIAYI CO., Toceka, Kas. FOR A PERFECT FORM A NEW GOWN TO GIVE STOUT WOM EN A CHANCE. It Sets the rig-are Off to Advantage OUr Harper "Dotes" on a Black Silk Cat to Slake the Waist Look Trim The Sea son's Trifles Dress Combination. Special Correspondence. 1 New York, April 19. One of the most novel as well as prettiest new de signs in the form of a gown came under my notice today. The material was a hairline black and gray silk, heavy in texture and of a pleasing color, as it had the appearance of dark gray until it was closely examined. This was cut to fit like a princess dress, but the front was cut in six parts, reaching from top to bottom, each piece curving in to lit the figure td perfection.. Indeed nothing short of physical per fection will do for this kind of a gown. Every seam from top to bottom is piped THE LATEST IDEA. with a heavy cord covered with reseda green velvet. It fits in the back in the same way, except that at the three mid dle seams the fullness of three breadths is laid under in fan plaits. It fastens invisibly in front. The sleeves are drooping puffs of the same material as the dress, with standing ruffles at the shoulders fastened in regular plaits to the gown. There are drooping ruffs at tho elbow. Around these and at the wrists are rows of velvet ribbon. This ia a real boon to the woman of perfect proportions, for lately she has had . no chance to show her figure to advantage. What with the ruffles, draperies, capes and berthas, the slender woman has looked even better than her plumper sis ter. I predict- an instant success for this elegant novelty. . Her sister in her rich black armure silk, with its wide skirt trimmed and festooned with black velvet ribbon lux uriously twisted in a manner to take up dozens and dozens of yards, her draped waist also decorated with ribbon and a deep cape of velvet made with a direct view to making her waist look small and her shoulders large, cannot, meta phorically speaking, hold a caudle to her for stylo or beauty. To achieve the snug fitting gown all the seams must be fitted while the gown is on wrong side out. But what a triumph for a dressmaker if she does get a good fit! Now, that black silk gown is really beautiful. The drapery is graceful, that gathered yoke gives broken lines and consequently softness to the face, and, as I said before, the wide cape and full sleeves make the waist look trim and round, while the wrinkled surplice at the bottom of the waist is extremely elegant, and a black silk gown is such a comfort. It is always genteel and lady like in any place or on any occasion; so, after all, I think, if offered a choice, I should prefer the black silk, but still the other is very stylish. Tea caps have come to stay. Every house now gives one to match every tea gown. But some of them are larger than the bonnets. One I saw was made of cream lace, like a flat alsatian bow, tied with cherry ribbons. Another, shaped just like a cockleshell, was of mazarin blue velvet, with a fall of lace in front and a long piece of lace hanging in the back. This was made for a young lady and looked youthful and "awfully styl ish." There is no end to the number of styles for hats this season. Some and the most have flowers, but really the most satisfactory hats have feather trim ming, generally quills, short ostrich tufts or a group of pinions in irregular lengths. One such had blue straw brim bordered with jet spangles. For trim- - 1 1 I SEW TRIFLES. ming there was a bunch of bluish crow pinions and a mass of bow loops. For a little girl there was a pretty "best hat" of silver gray straw, with a very wide brim bent down on the sides and up in the front and back. Two rosettes of silver gray ribbon were set on the crown, one on each side, ending in long strings to tie under the chin. On the top were two mottled gray quills with tiny gilt spangles. Among the newest combinations in making up gowns I notice challie and cashmere with lace and ribbon trim mings. China silk and nun's veiling make another combination, as do crepon and velutina, and granite cheviot and camel's hair. One would think these goods too near alike to f orm the contrast of material necessary for a striking cos tume, but curiously enough they are effective. ' Olive Harper. il'SM iff ft It i.u Jy m . m - TELEPHONE WIRE A contemporary complains that by the proposed suffrage bill in Massachusetts tho ballot is to be given to all kinds of women, those who have material inter ests and those who have none, those who are intelligent and those who are not, those who have character and those who have none. But why is it any more wrong or dangerous td give the ballot to all kinds of women than to all kinds of men? If the ballot is to be restricted to perfect women, let us also restrict it to perfect men. Boston Globe. Tlieir uVIission. Two women journalists have been sent on a tour of the world by the Dundee Courier and Weekly News. They are Miss F.

Their trip will cover 36, 000 miles. San Fran cisco Argonaut A Queen's Sentiment. The queen of Portugal, having been asked to writo a few lines for a national album to bo published at the forthcom ing fetes in- celebration of the five hun dredth anniversary of the birth of Prince Henry, the navigator, has sent the fol lowing contribution, "As a mother and an a queen my greatest ambition would bo to endow my country, the Portuguese nation, with a group of children like those of Philippa of Lancaster, and that among them there should be one who should do great deeds for Portugal and for the world, like Prince Henry."

Boston Traveller. A. Woman's Age It is' said that a woman is sometimes delicate about mentioning her age. Well, sho needn't be delicate about mentioning this one, for this is the woman's age, and the world is recog nizing the fact. There never was a time when our sex was so near the head of the procession as now. Polly Pry in New York Recorder. Wholesome Cosmetics.
