"M G. A.’* writes; 1 broke a mir

The breaking of the mirror can have
no effect on “M O. A.” nnd her com
ing ordeal, except so far as she her
self allows her mind to yield to her
fears and worry. Just think of this:
Every day In factories where mirrors
are made hundreds of mirrors are
broken; every day In furniture factor
ies dozens of mirrors nre broken. Yet
those factories grow and prosper, and
their owners are ns “fortunate" ns
men in any other business. “They
sav" that opals are unlucky. Suppose
you found an opal mine, would you bo
unlucky? What about the dealers
in nreclous stones who deal In opals
and are rich and happy? No. The
only harm “siens” do is what we let
them do to us; that is, we let them
disturb and worry us.

NEW YORK. I>ec. 14—Mr*. Ala
Eugenia 11. C. Farrar, better known In
charity circle* ax the Countess Von
Boos-Fnrrar, obtained an interlocutory
decree of absolute divorce from Leon*
i ard C. Farrar. The fact that the plain
tiff was “the counter" would not have
; been revealed had It not been for the
j fact that her marriage certificate wax

county elerk's office. The certificate
said that Mrs. Farrar’s maiden name

Dressed in a brown tailormade suit,
Mr*. Farrar testified that she had been
married to Farrar at College Point on
N’ov. 2»i. 1903, by the Rev. Henry
Marsh Warren, known as “the marry
ing parson.’’ She said her ease had
been pushed ahead on the calendar be
cause she intended to go west on a
vocal concert tour. After saying that
she had not forgiven or condoned the
offenses of her husband, she was per
mitted to leave the stand.
Then a clerk of the Parker House
brought with him the register of the
hotel, and when shown a picture of
Farrar identified him as the man who
registered himself and another woman
there one evening as “C. L Rarraf
land wife." Rarraf, it was pointed out,
,is Farrar spelled backwards. The
clerk said that. Farrar and the same
woman occupied apartments in the
hotel on two occasions. On this evi
dence Justice Bischoff granted the In
terlocutory decree.
In an affidavit Mrs. Fnrrar said she
'and Farrar had no children. She de
scribed him as a broker of jewelry
and precious stones, hut did not tell
his business address. There w*as also
a letter from Farrar to his wdfe. in
which he confessed his guilt and then

the programme. She also gave several
public entertainments of her own and

foundation of a home and school for

She finally established the Brookside
Farm at. Bardonia. N. Y., but the
tract of several thousand acres was
sold in 19A8 because the home did not
prove a success.
The Countess claimed to be the
daughter of Count John Matthias von
Boos of Sweden, who spent u large
fortune In gambling. She said her
mother was the daughter of ClusTiff

Paris Is again enthusiastic over
hrown, and the very latest fad In
brown furs is Ipson—a pelt that has a
marking like chinchilla, but in a warm
brown tone. Such a coat Is dressy
enough for afternoon calls worn over
dainty frocks of cashmere or the soft
perVno stuffs so much In vogue now.
The long silk Jersey so long used as
a foundation for a dress Is being much
used as a waist to wear under long
tailored street coats. The close fit of
the jersey preserves the set of the coat
and the woven silk Is warmer, as well
as less bulky than the waist of cotton
or French flannel.
The aido frill finishes front plaits
of all kinds of waists and is of many
sorts. With lace waists It is of lace
or silk, and with lingerie waists of ba
tiste, lawn or lawn plaited finely and
edged with lace. Asa rule It has a
border on the plait side of embroidery
or lace. Some very handsome ones
are of Irish crochet.
There Is a predominance of dark cos
tumes and black ones worn even by
young girls. Ilut the latter often
have a glint of bright color or gold to
set ofT the sable effect. A particularly
r-trikfug costume seen recently was of
broadcloth made with plaited skirl
and long slender coat far below the
knees. Under the coat was an odd
little double-breasted waistcoat of car
dinal red satin with brass buttons.
The yoke was of white luce.
The lovely gold and silver galloons
found In the upholstery departments
suggest a host of uses for hat# and
gowns. The gold and silver galloons
marie for curtains and hangings have

and they make excellent hatbands,
buckles and other trimmings.
