At this function bridcsma ids. maids and matrons ot bor er- were ignored, their places being taV-'i by a "guard of honor." This "Ung Kuard was formed of twelve little gill friends of the bride. They were all di-e se.l alike in low- necked and short Sf-evil luce frocks worn over pink silk slips. The frocks were very simple, ha' iiii: as Thir only ornament two long pink riiih -n streamers floating from the left shoulder and held in place by a tu'le resett".

For the June r edding gow n, if it must be of heavy satin, let a quantity of chiffon or lace B'most hid the texture.

These applications have been filed from time to time since the announcement that tents would be pro cured and since yesterday, when it was announced that the village would soon be ready for its inhabitants, many o these inquiries have been repeated. Mr. Stagg this morning ventured an esti mate that 1.000 people would take tents if they could get them. NEW APPLICANTS. Where ail these people are now stay ins, and have been staying; since the flood, nobody knows. Many of them have kept off the hands of the relict' and shelter committees entirely up to the present time, waiting only for the. tents to be made ready. Undoubtedly many of them have lived with friends, who are unable to shelter them Ion?, but have in this manner lent valuable assistance to the general relief work. Men have come to the officers in charge, of the Auditorium headquarters, say-inn-: "(live us beds, a few chairs and ,i stove. We'll take care of oursol"en then, but we've got to have something to start with. A little furniture is all ; we want, and we can jset houses som-;- : w' hf 1 e." : People with this spirit have been '. readily aided by the relief committee. : and it is believed that several hundred familbs. after securing- a few dolars" i worth of household goods, have entirely j withdrawn themselves from the support of the public. A lot of this sort of peo I pie, unable to get houses, will accept j the offer of free tents in the fair i grounds. During the past two weeks ;sevtral churches, among them the First j Cumberland Presbyterian and the First 'Christian, have sheltered many peopli. I On Kansas avenue and in many of the : halls upon the side streets hundreds ot I families are living in halls, unused of, I flee rooms and store buildings. At the ! Santa Fe shops a dozen or more Run. jsian families, whose men work for th- company, are now living in an unusej ! sh"-l i Considering all these people who will i have to leave their present temporary shelter, the estimate of the relief cotn : mittee as to the probable number of th.. tent villagers does not seem unreason able. On the other hand there will b I many of the better class of people, now j homeless, l'or whom the idea of living 1 in the fair grounds will be very repug i nant. They will remain there the short. i est time passible.

A stunning gown of tan i is scarlet toned up, or rather down, is prettier. The skirt mounted over silk voile dotted with red silk spots has been 1 with a bright clear blue of the turquoise is double, the upper skirt several inches j shorter than the lower skirt, both of i which have a ruche of mousseline at I their edges. Inserted in the upper i skirt is an undulating band ot lace, and ' above this is a festooned arrangement I of the material caught with spravs of orange ilowers. l.etween that and the shirred yoke and fitted empiecement of lace are motifs of the same applied here and there. Hevond the shirred yoke arid waist collar is a lace bolero held in place bv bretebe-like pieces of flower decked mousseline. The sleeves have the appearance of being dropped from an angel s wing so lignt and airy are they and above the elbow meet a very earthly cuff of shirred mousseline. A tulle veil edged with a narrow border of lace and a small wreath of orange blossoms ought to make a girl one of the daintiest brides of her dav. This bride will rarrv a large bouquet made up of as many smaller nosegays i as she has bridesmaids. When the cere j ninny is over she will cut the ribbon ' which holds the bouquet and give to each fair maid her share of the flowers. : Hidden in one of the little posies is a j heart shaped ring of precious stones. and she who finds it is sure to be the ; next bride of the group, i But enough of the bride. There are other women quite as attractive as these important creatures and who are supposed to be in their right minds a condition in which the lovelorn maiden is not of I en to be found.

The Commercial club today turned over to the county com missinners $4.,i,o to be used in providing seed and farming imple ments for farmers who sustained sev?rc losses fiom the flood. This sum will be di vided equally and $2.0o,V will be devoted for each use. If more money is required the understanding is that the commissioners will find more of the general relief fund at their disposal. EWEM WON'T GO BACK. Kentucky Landlord Fears Again Locate in Jackson. to Jackson, Ky.. June IS. T. Ewen and his family are still in the military camp and greatly appreciate the efforts of the press, soldiers and others to raise funds to secure them a home. Contributions are corning from all parts of Kentucky and other states. Cant. Ku en said he would not rebuild m Jackson, as he felt that neither his property nor his life would be safe h-u-e. When court convened today the de fense placed I)r. J. M. Kash on the stand. Ho testified that be saw Jett on the walk at the corner of the court house yard ten seconds before the shots were tired. He went directly to Mar rum and assisted in carrying him across the street into his office, where he died in five minutes. Commonwealth's At torney Iiyrd cross-examined Dr. Kash but did not shake his story. Dr. John Taulee, the Jlargis family physician, corroborated the statements of Dr. Kash. County Judge James Hargis, an uncle of Jett and the laputed head of the Hargis faction, was next called. Hargis stated that he saw White walk out of i the court house door and was one-third across the street when the first shot was fired. "When I heard the first shot I saw Kwen pitch otit of the door and run. i. then saw Marcum fall. I came to the dor hurriedly. I saw Judge Blanton approach the wounded man. I saw Jett approaching' the scene of the tragedy. My recollection is that I saw Dr. Kash approaching about the time the last shot was fired; I am not cer tain as to the exact time. "Light Noble and Sheriff E. Callahan were in my store at the time. I was looking toward the court house when the shots were fired. I diil not see Kwen !ok in the hall, when the first shot was fired. After the killing I sent for Ewen. or Callahan sent for him." Hargis stated that he did" not know who killed Marcum, as he was not "in range with the hall." In response to interrogation HargH explained several possible exits by which an assassin might have escape 1 from the court house. Cross-examined by Attorney llyrd, Hargis said he saw nothing unusual in White's action when he came out of the dor. "Diil yen oo Jett anywhere when the shots were iirod?" "T saw Curt." "Answer my question." said Mr. Byrd. "Xo. T did not see him." After a few more questions Hargis 1 was excused. A JUNE WEDDING made up for Trouville wear.

No further prog ress has been made in the provision of the constitution. Many say that the present ministry is inclined to be con servative and desires to prevent the de liberations on the subject of the modifi cation of the constitution until the ar rival of King Peter, thus giving the new sovereffin a free hand in granting a new constitution. This is partly con firmed by the reDort of a committee of the chamber appuinted to revise the constitution which had been instructed to produce an entirely new one, based on the constitution of 1SSS.

Fresh testimony in great quantity is con stantly coming in, declaring Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds to be unequaled. A recent ex pression from T. J.

Final limit returning September 15. There is another new frock adorn ment used extensively on more elab orate costumes. It is formed of appli qued medallions of lace sewed on the fabric over a contrasting color. These medallions are in all shapes and sizes, in conventional square, round or oval patterns, and used as strips and three cornered pieces. They are disposed all over the dress or applied at the sweet will of the modiste. It is very neces sary for the good effect that a bright color be used under the lace, particu larly when a thick variety is applied, otherwise no contrast between the gown material and the underlying silk is obtained. Buttons are playing an important role this summer, and the latest whimsical ity is to use on a frock an endless number of the kind having four holes, through which is seen the bright silk used in sewing them on. For ex ample, a black and white check shirt waist suit piped with a color preferably red or green and buttons of the piping tone prettily distributed about is quite the newest touch. The other night I was at the Come- 5? ' die Francaise. where we have all been going to see "Les Affaires Sont les Af faires," by Octave Mirabeau, whose latest production has been spoken of by the critics as "the biggest play of modern times." His characters are drawn from life, but the play's not the thing for me, and should I continue I might be tempted to take upon myself some of the Impertinences of the dram atic critic. Well, what struck me at the play in the women's toilets were the dainty little bows they wore in their hair. Of course these butterflies have been in evidence a long while, but not j Hog Feed Cheap. 5 We have several cars of corn meal and corn which were more or less damaged in the railroad yards, but suitable for hog feed. We wish to dispose of it at once and can promise you a bargain. It will be sold out as soon as possible, so call us up by tele phone or come and see us quick. The Topeka Cor. Crane and EVERYBODY READS the especial butterfly kind of colored ribbon so fetchingly disposed on pretty locks. How the Parisienne does love to decorate her hair! And there is method in my lady's fashion, as her tresses are mighty apt to be neither long nor thick and bows are admirable for concealing these defects. The smart woman now carries a jew eled key attached to a chatelaine or worn in some individual manner. It may open her ladyship's escritoire or jewel box, and even if she has nothing more valuable than a secret to hide the dainty key bears evidence of the fact. From the entirely useless to the prac tical is but a step, so let me ask you to come with me to the shops where the ready made skirts and waists dwell and there contrive an impromptu frock. If black or white is your heart's choice much may be done in the way of harmonizing. A canvas perhaps with a dainty linen shirt waist, a natty tie and a distinctive buckle, will, with a little "editing." remove all trace of the ready to wear garment. The French m'lliners place on their large black hats white plumes and are having them tinted a warm, becoming cream, which does away with the un sophisticated blue white ones of tradi tion. The long handled parasols have brought in their wake walking sticks, and many smart women are seen carry ing them. These will give the papers something fresh to talk about and the men material for some new satire on their eternal subject woman and her ways. CATHERINE TALBOT. The Jew Bisti. The hand bags are still with us, and the new ones are even daintier than ever. One of the smartest is of gun metal with a fringe of crystal. It swings from the waist or is held in the hand by a string of pearls. A bag the Parisians think particularly chic is made of bright red morocco leather with gold mountings. It is ridiculously large, but is gay and attractive looking, and holds in a comfortable fashion a quantity of small things, such as hand kerchief, powder puffs and parcels. On'many of the lightest and daintiest parasols are to be found handles of bog wood, both carved and plain, and on the darker ones will be seen exquisitely wrought ivory handles. The old fash ioned carriage parasol of French or thread lace is again very fashionable, and it is quite worth one's while to hunt around in the treasure chest for any thing it contains in fbis line. Extremely odd and pretty are the long handles of jet and those of steel. Indeed, everything in the parasol king dom is fascinatingly lovely this year. The SoefetT Hand Shnke. Everybody shakes hands with some body, but only people who are doing so every day know the fashionable hand shake. The day of the high hand shake is past, and a more graceful hand shake is in vogue. The hand is extended from the waist line, but not too far; but, as one authority expresses it, "with a mere suggestion of restraint." When the hands meet there is a gentle movement to the rirht side of the person who ex tends the greeting, then back to the original position, the hands tinclasp. and the ceremony is over. It is much more refined and graceful than the shoulder movement which characterized last season's fashion. GIBLER'S PHARMACY Milling Co. j Adams Streets. 4 THE STATE JOURN . Sill A. "P retiy Crepe mouse DELICIOUSI.Y cool is the white crepe de chine blpuse here illus trated. There are simplicity and chic in every line of this box plaited waist, which blouses very slightly over a fitted silk belt. The neck arrange ment is especially attractive with its draped collar of crape and lace edging fastened with a handsome enameled button. The sleeves are very full and hang over a transparent lace cuff. A Powder Tuff Bracelet. A very frivolous little trifle is fel!nj its way into the conventional market. This is a sweetly foolish French brace let consisting of a hoop of gold set with a large oval miniature. When a spring is touched, the painted face flies back, and. lo. a fragmnt of downy white in a shallow box beneath! A powder puff, mesdames ! Numberless pretty and inexpensive trifles which contribute to the comfort and adornment of woman may often be picked up at out of the way places. For example, one little store provides thin, washed gold hairpins, warranted not to tarnish, for blond looks. Shell pins for auburn hair at the same place have a red tinge, the fancy combs now necessary for che rest of the coiffure matching. A Xovelty In TrimmlnR. One of the latest novelties as trim ming for tailor made gowns is suede, undressed kid skin. It is used in the bands, also for revers and long stole ends and is sometimes stitched on in a contrasting color. The newest belts are of embossed suede, ornamented with enormous steel or silver buckles, which set them off to perfection. Ml I I ( 1
