Patrol h.ii, iiM are not a fancy addi

not luxuries or extras, like a COmmbt
loner! ko1i shield oi the gin band on

sentlal if not an absolutely necessary l
addition t.. every weii-appiintd police
force. No city should he without them. '

the people have always been ready to
deal most generously with the Depart

but for Hie Important (jmstion or econo

A't.r Collar.
The fashionable small pieces of fur
this season are called collars, but are
almost large enough to be considered
capes, as they reach over the shoulder
tips, and many are pointed to the waist
In front and back alike One of the
most effective and becoming pieces is
the double collar of mink cut very full,
reaching over the sleeve tops, p ilntlng
to the waist In front, bu: round and
short across the back, an 1 finished with
a flaring high collar. The gay brocaded
or moire lining is an important feature
of these collars, as they are QUlcaiy re
moved when in the house, and their
rich lining Is en evidence, other larger
collars pointed to the wais: line In front
and back are of sealskin, edged with
chinchilla. Double collars are also made
of black velvet bordered with fluffy black
fox fur. with also a high flaring collar
band of fur. A novelty Is a collar of
I sage-green velvet edged with Jet. and a
Shoulder ruffle of moire Persian, the top
I having an Kllzabethan frill of the black
1 fur Inside a high battlemented collar of
velvet and Jet.
Sweet l-i,ttti'r . Southern Style.

over half a cupful of hot water and a

Menial Employment.
At well-known women's club lately
the discussion came around to the idea
of ladies earning their own living by cer
tain sorts of rather menial employment.
i One woman present, a literary light,
asked : "The trouble Is. doesn't she put
herself In the way of being snubbed?"
To which another ill, rary light rc-
I marked, with dignity: ".My dear Mrs.
!.So-and-Ho, a Christian gentlewoman
! never snubs anybody." This broad
statement was somewhat weakened by
the fact, notorious to must persons pres
ent, that the speaker was u woman of
great dignity, although of great kindli
ness to those who were her friends.
Snubbing, however, was not an un
known art to her. Moreover, the un
fortunate fact was linked that the wo
' man who tries to do nny sort of work
I has to come In contact with all sorts of
; people, and cannot limit her clients to
I "Christian gentlewomen."

Table Vciimrr, in Arqentlna.
"We encamped near a swamp." Bays
a gentleman describing a meal he had
j with some cart drivers In South Amer
ica, "nnd supped on sliced pumpkins,
boiled with bits of meat and seasoned
! with salt. The meal was served In
genuine psmpa fashion, one iron spoon
) and two cow's horns, split In halves.
I were passed around the group, the mem
bers of which squatted upon their
haunches and freely helped themselves
! from the kettle. Kven In this most un
civilized form of satisfying hunger there
le a peculiar etiquette, which the most
lowly person Invariably observes. Each
member of the company tn turn dips Ills
spoon, or horn. Into the centre of the
stew .md draws It In a direct line
towards him, never allowing It to devi
ate to the right or left, lly observing
this rule each person eats without In
terfering with his neighbor lteing Ik
in ii jiii of this custom I dipped my horn
Into the mees at random and fished
about for some of the ulce bite. My
companions regarded this horrid breach
of politeness with scowls of Impatience.
They declared, with some warmth, to
the cook the foreigners did not know
Mow t eat. I ap.ilugiz.-d ns well as I
could, and endeavored thereafter to eat
according t. gsucho etiquette."

A warm foot bath with an ounce of
sea salt Is almost as restful as a nap.
Paddle In tiie water until it cools, dry
with a rough towel, put on fresh stock
ings, have a change of shoes, and the
woman who was "ready to drop" will
have a very good understanding In tea
minutes. The quickest relief from fatigue
Is to plunge the foot In Ice-cold w'ter and
keep It Immersed until there is a sensa
tion of warmth. Another tonic for the
sole Is a handful of alcohol. This la a
sure way to dry the feet after being out
in the storm.
