Mr. and Mrs. Roy Crawford and
their son, Roy Crawford, jr., returned
the first of the week from a trip thru
the east and into Canada. They were
gone three weeks. One of the most
noticeable -things of interest, accord
ing to Mrs. Crawford, was the large
number of soldiers who have returned
to this country and Canada to recover
from their wounds. The streets in
New York are full of soldiers, French,
Kngiish, Italian, Canadian and Amer
ican, who have come over here either
to recuperate or because they have
lost limbs and are of no more use
over there. There is a large hospital
in Toronto where the soldiers are re
constructed and this is always crowd
ed, and the Toronto women have
given up their elegant homes to be
used as homes for these soldiers.
.Mrs. Crawford visited a number of
the canteen committees of the east,
but did hot pay especial attention to
those in Canada as th-ey are not under
the Ked Cross. "The management of
our Topeka. canteen service is won
derful," said Mrs. Crawford, "when I
mink what those people in the east
nave to ao witn and compare their t
results with ours, I am very proud of
lopeka. Mr. and Mrs. Crawford vis- i
ited the canteen workers at Buffalo,
Albany and Rochester, N. Y., Detroit, ,
Mtch, and Chicago, III. At all these i
places automobiles are furnished i
connection with the work. In Roches-
ter, the canteen work Is run on local I
subscription and there is no limit to I
their means; they even have a sup- I
ply car which they attach to the train i
when the boys can't Ket off. Here i
they have a wonderful kitchen in the
station.
In Chicago the canteen committee
has a wonderfully complete hut, with
a hospital room, which will accom
modate a number of sick soldiers.
They also have a garage all their own
at the station. But even so, Mrs.
Crarvford says the work of our com
mittee compares very favorably with
any whicn she saw. In Detroit, they
remarked that some days they accom
modated 4,000 soldiers. In Topeka,
the committee often takes care of
2,600 or 3.000 who pass thru on
troop trains.
Mr. and Mrs. Crawford brought
home a number of the "Salute and
Ride" posters which are so popular
In the east now. All cars working
for the canteen will have -Salute and
Ride" posters for their windshields
and by saluting, a soldier may ride in
these car? at any time.

skirts are to be shorter. This may
not appear possible, but it is true nev
ertheless, according to Mrs. Margaret
Braeker. a designer of gowns, who has
been studying new designs in Paris
and who landed here on a liner today.
Skirts will also be tighter, Mrs.
Braeker declared, in conformity with
the war, made necessary to conserve
cloth. In order to save dyes, restric

student, has arrived safely overseas.
He is with the 308 aero squadron.
A word to the wise is expressed In
"The Stars and Stripes." It says,
"Don't go hunting souvenirs for Susie
when you next go up front. If you
do you are more than likely to de
prive Susie of the only souvenir she
really wants to have you bring back
from the war namely, yourself.
"During a recent battle. In addition
to mining the village before they were
driven out, the Germans scattered hel
mets, bayonets, belts and other equip
ment about temptingly, counting on
the fondness of American soldiers for
souvenirs. Each was attached by a
wire to- high explosives, and a few
American soldiers, eager for keep
sakes, were wounded in this fashion."
The report came from a news agency
correspondent who was at the front
when this happened.

There Is a Tendency Toward Black sport clothes or for gay and leisurely
na White Open-Air Costumes That
Do Not Suggest Mourning, Rut
New Spoil Fashion Adopted Even by
Young People.
New York. There is nothing un
usual about black and white. It never
presents the seductive allure of novel
ty. It is as old as time. It is a purely
artificial combination In which the
repetition of nature plays no part, and
it must have been invented, originally,
by one who w; i as daring in his ar
tistic methods as the futurist of the
present epoch.
Black and white open-air costume
with side-pleaed tunic ani white
bands at wrist and collar. There Is
. a string girdle, and haevy, white
pearl buttons on the collar.
Possibly the first woman who- ap
peared in a combination made up of
black and white, was considered a
sensationalist. In her day she prob
ably provoked as much criticism as
some of her latter day followers who
have attempted the hitherto unap
proachable in dress.
It is one of the most curious things
In the study of dreu$ to lookf back
upon the centuries and see that whtt
we consider a commonplace today was
once considered a sensationalism. He
who twisted straw into head covering
as protection from the sun and rain,
was followed by a crowd of pa ping
observers. Today the hatless man on
the street is looked at askance.
The Incroyables, who, wore the first
pantaloons, were called, as you know.
"The Unbelievables." The first queen
who carried a handkerchief which she
used in public, was considered vulgar
to the extreme.
Thruout the centuries one could find
the beginning's of our commonplace
apparel marked with the red flag of
revolution from an existing standard.
History doesn't tell us what effect the
frst combination of black and white
created, but if it did, it would doubt
less add another interesting chapter to
the study of clothes. r
We know it was beldvod of the
Pompeians. It was used by them for
floorfa, rather than clothes, and men
have adopted it for their fanciful ap
parel for interior decoration. Women
have used it thru the recent centuries
in various and sometimes . uncanny
ways. It is not the combination to
put into the hands of the many, and
yet, to the average woman, it is a sup
posedly safe one.
Well, whatever the history, it is
again in style.
As Tt Is Worn In the Open.
Black and white has not been con
sidered a. leading combination for
days on tne Deacn ana in me. mouii-
tains. But this summer has seen the
introduction of a new type of hot
weather dressing, which may have
been brought about by the war or by
a change In public opinion.
Women wear far more frocks than
sweaters and separate skirts, and it is
in the sport frock that the black and
white combination appears.
The sketch shows an Interesting cos
tume built up of these two colors in an
inconspicuous farhion that would ap
peal to a conservative woman.
The suit is ot tmn woolen jersey,
with a knife pleated tunic that extends
at the sides only. The flat, slim, little
bodice is withjut fastening, it crosses
at the bust a.-id is tied about the waist
with a strir-g belt. There Is a separate
band of wh'te across the chest, and
the rippling, folded collar is edged
with deep white cloth and trimmed
with large white pearl buttons.
The broad white cuffs which ex
tended below the sleeves are fastened
with jeweled link buttons, which, by
the way, is a very old fashion come
back to life. The hat Is white, and
the tops of the shoes are white. .
THE HOUSEHOLD
Edited by ANVE KITTBNHOLSE
Cultivating the Dim Ught. !
Making a virtue of necessity, we are
told, is something for which the
American . woman has a real knack.
When wool was scarce and conserva- !
tion of all,, sorts of dress goods was1
desirable, we made the best of the
situation by assuming that narrow
skirts and narrow bodices and leeye
less coats and liningless frocks were
quite the best fashion. To be sure,
Paris gave us the hint, but there were
no women anywhere who got the
swing of the new scant fashions soon
er than did the Americans.
-- Now we are reminded almost daily
that next winter will be a fuel-short
season worse, perhaps, than last win
ter. We can't exactly make it fash
ionable to have chillblains and influ
enza, but we have good reason to be
lieve that very . much bundled-up
clothes will be the fashion when snow
flies again. And as for lights well,
the best thing we can do is to make
the best of a bad situation and start
in right now making the dim religious
light attractive. If we make- our
homes look as if we had dimmed the
lights for the sake of the artistic ef
fect thus produced, we shall have
done very much better than if we
display one single meager light, with
the manner of feeling very much dis
tressed because that is all the illumi
nation we are allowed.
Brightly illuminated, houses are not
going to be in vogue next winter. That
is a safe assumption, because we have
found that l i never the least bit
fashionable over here to beunpatriotio.
and to conserve lights is going to be a
fine act of patriotism.
Don't make the mistake of thinking
you have best handled the light con
servation Droblem by removing all the
shades from your lights and apparent
ly stretching the. to their full ca
pacity. When wool was short we didn't
proceed to -tretch it; we made up our
minds that we liked scant clothes. So
let's make up our minds that we like

Price Advance
For over a year now we have
succeeded in maintaining our
old prices, principally by vir
tue of a big Increase In sales,
which reduced our overhead
cost.
For our fiscal year ending
July 1, 1918. our sales
amounted to over a million
dollars an increase of 5S
over the preceding year.
We had hoped to bridge
the war period without a
change In prices on
Vick's VapoRub
but we find that our econ
omies do not keep pace with
our rising costs. It is with
sincere regret, therefore, that
we are forced to announce an
increase, effective August 1,
which will make It necessary
to retail VapoKub at
30c, 60c and $1.20

dim lights. By all means get the best
fixtures and burners, so that what
lich v-rii havA will atn a R fnr n M nos-
sible. But also use shades so skil-'
fully that the idea that you are
stretching your lights will not be
given. Use soft shades to make an
attractive dim effect. There is some
thing suggestive of orphn .asylums
and Siberian pr'sons about a single
unshaded light that glares out in a
room, canting its rays as far as possi
ble. It is hideoi sly dim and gloomy.
Tet the ncme light, when softened by
an attrc.ct've shade and perhaps there
by deprivd of some of its lighting
power, appears really charming. It
suggests long, leisurely conversations
in the firelight glow, reposefulness,
intimacy, domesticity.
