•iYlmmed with fancy braid outlined In black
Mosaic effects in drapery nets are one of trm
latest evidences of the season's fad for color, espe
cially in lace curtains and hangings. Owing to this
row fancy the most fascinating fabrics are dis
played on every side to entice the purchaser. In
g(i BMSSjca, ori.-ntal combinations are most popu
lar, green, yellow, blue and red stripes being
crossed by interwoven threads of blax-k.
Closely ri\ ailing these, but in widely contrasting
style of beauty, are the lovely "shadow silks,"
which are teen at their beet with the light from
the window shining through their noft folds.
Flower patterns of poppies, rosee or water lilies,
the laft with a delightful underwater effect, are
chosen in thie material most frequently.
Other lace curtains have -pretty patterns of con
ventionalised flowrrs in three colors, reds, blues
and greens forming the prominent shades. Since
Arabian and Renaissance still continue to be
favorite laces, some clever dealers, to introduce the
popular touch of color, offer to cell with these
hangings a ribbon insertion of the tint devised for
the room.
Even the Bimpler and less expensive grades of
lace may render a window thoroughly artistic If
daintily draped, and in securing such results the
cord and tassel plays an important part. There ls
an unlimited number of possible arrangements in
draping. If the two curtains at the window, in
stead of merely meeting at the middle of the rod
upon which they are hung, are made to lap over
each other considerably, they may be caught back
at a point about one-third of tne distance from
the tap by cords, which are then tied at the ex
treme end of the rod on either side. Tassels orna
ment the lon* ends ot the cords, and are allowed
to fall loosely. The curtains may again be gath
ered in. lower down, with a French knot. This ar
rangement is prettiest with a soft, filmy curtain.
Cords may also be used effectively to drape back
an* of a pair of curtains midway up trnj -window,
and the other at a point near the top.
Portieres of satin, covered with rich hand em
broidery in gold and colored silks, are among the
most attractive novelties In decorative fabrics.
These are imported from the Orient, and the de
tails of the designs are similar to those seen in a
Turkish mosque. Other newly imported Eastern
fabrics are elaborately worked in figures of pea
cocks, elephants and birds of bright plumage.
Buch patterns are peculiar to India, and come in
both cotton and silk. They make most desirable
draperies In Oriental corners, smoking rooms or
Rope portieres and edgings continue in fashion,
and are appearing in new and attractive shades.
Imaplßg pace with the general fondne.ss for color.
¦fcSM edgings are often used on reversible our
taJnf, being made in two-sided colors like the cur
tains which they are to match.
Th* color scheme of the hangings of a room
fhould naturally be only a continuation of that
used for wall decoration, and the wall hangings of
the reason are correspondingly bright and varied.

Certain aspects of the season's fashions are so
marked as tn ho unmistakable. First, every
woman who can wear a forty-flve-inch cloak wlth
o\n looking "like a guy"— and many who cannot—
will do so. Second, castor has regained the over
whelming popularity of two years ago, and will
be worn for gowns, coats and hats until people
are weary of it. Third, costumes for the street
will clear tne ground completely, almost without
exception, -while those for home and evening wear
•will have longer trains than ever.
Apart from these general outlines, the fact re
mains that there has never bern a time in the
history of fashion when there was such a latitude
allowed the individual taste and style. There is
no hard and fast rule for anything in the realm of
costume. Every woman is expected to select the
mode, color and fabric best suited to her, and -when
she has done that she is considered to have done
her -whole duty to society In the matter of dress.
There are few new names in the list- of fabrics
to be used, but the fabrics themselves have many
points of novelty. Canvas, for instance, now comes
in a fineness of weave that makes it practically a
new material. Homespun differs widely from the
article, heretofore known by that name, being a
mixture of a variety of threads— tine, coarse, black,
¦white and colored— that give a. decided novelty of
I effect. It will be used tor long walking coats and
tailored costumes, and will be trimmed with
stitched or corded satin or plain velvet bands. The
foundation colors most liked, will be gray, ditrk red
and browns. Many of the fashionable materials
have long white hairs scattered Irregularly over
the surface. In the, manner that formerly was
characteristic of camel's hair.
Cheviots, unfinished worsteds, vicunas. Venetians
and broadcloths are to divide popularity among
them for tailored gowns, while materials of ex
tremely light weight will be used for dressy cos
Some of the costumes now being shown by the
leading shops are exceedingly delicate and artistic.
A black satin crepe de chine has the upper part
of the skirt tucked tinely, and the bodice is In
pinch tucks, on which are tiny jot beads about
an inch apart. The front of white coin spotted lace
is drawn Into a belted blouse effect, and has a
clever touch in the introduction of narrow velvet
ribbon of pale violet shade applied In small geo
metrical motifs down the middle, and two rosettes
at the side of the stock collar. The sleeves are
slightly bell shaped to the elbow, and are finished
hy puff sleeves of lace drawn into a cuff, with
deep lace edge falling well over the hand.
A fine blue crPpe de chine has the skirt tucked
in vertical groups of three to the. Bounce, which

j headed by silver spangled white OHiny insertion.
i The bodice is decollete, edged with the lace, and the
elbow sleeve is almost tight. A corsage knot
and sash of black velvet ribbon, two inches wide.
add a telling accent.
Many of the evening gowns have sleeves reaching
half way to the elbow; sometimes they are tightly
lifted and sometimes have almost a puff effer-t.
Most of the handsomer tailored >-" ; w:..s retain th*>
bolero in some modification. A favorite s-tyle has
straps across the full front, ending at each ride
in a tiny buckle. Another Is whole ;i'i<.ss the
bust and back, fastening invisibly un<!er the arm.
A lovely costume of dark blue, cloth has a belted
blouse opening over a full front of white satin,
with yoke of open hemstitching. The blouse i-i
edged with a band of pale blue cloth embroidered
with black. The skirt is perfectly plain and flares
Most of the new hats are larger than ever.
The long coat seem? to demand the Gainsborough
and kindred styles, and the demand is fully sup
plied. Even toques and turbanr. are extended an':
amplified to an astonishing size. The result la
eminently satisfactory, however, as the new models
are extremely beautiful. A large draped toque oT
tucked petunia velvet achieves a highly artistic
ensemble by having for decoration two long ostrich
plumes of exactly th«» same rich tint, encircling
rhe soft brim. In opposite directions from their
meeting point at the side. One lies well on the
brim and the other rests somewhat on the crown,
and the effect ls most graceful.
A wonderful creation 1* of black and white chif
fon folds alternating with a mixed braid of black
Kr.d white chenlll.. with black dotted white breast
ingeniously axraneed on the wide, upturned brim.
Or.c If not absnlutHy restricted to the large hat,
however, hs there are occasionally almost diminu
tive toques and round hats to suit small faces.
One sur-h wa." of black ro^e petals with brim turned
back from the face. Over this was draped a
narrow Renaissance scarf knotted In*- at the t-ide.
A half w-reath of Email pink roses added a pretty
color note.
In answer to th<» question "Who is the greatest
woman In all history?" put to two hundred Macon
County (Mo.) teachers. Miss Nannie Viekroy. of
Macon. made a unique answer, which received the
prize for originality. She passed over Queen Vic
toria, Frances Willard, Helen Gould and other
women whose names were the most popular, and
declared: 'The wife of the Missouri farmer of
moderate means who does her own cooking wash-
Ing and Ironing, brings up a large family of girls
and boys to be useful members of society, and finds
time for her own intellectual and moral improve
ment is 'the greatest woman in all history.' "
Power to make arrests has recently been
gTanted to Mm. C A. Severance, of St. Paul,
&Dnn. Mrs. Severance has long been a prominent
•worker In the Humane Society of her city, and
has regretted her disability to secure the punish
ment In many caSJSS, of persons who treated their
animals -with cruelty. She lias now obtained from
the r'hief of Police a silver star bearing the in
scription, "Special Humane Officer. St. Paul." and
she may make arrests whenever necessary She
says that she will call on passers-by for "help If
resistance is made to her arrests. Mrs Severance
will not patrol the streets, but will make use of
her power merely when instances of violation of
humane laws come before her notice
Probably one of the most remarkable of unique
and costly dresses is that given to a woman by
an Indian ruler. It ls covered with thousands of
the wing cases of an Indian beetle, which makes
the dross Fhine with bewildering Iridescent light
This beautiful product of the hi-etle is used also
by native women as a decoration for their dresses
The moat costly element of women's dress, as
a rule, Is lace, particularly old lace, which Is
Eometimes of almost priceless value. A lace hand
kerchief of the Queen Tjowager of Italy is said
to be three hundred years old and valued at
$10,000. Among women of fashion, however ex
travagance In all departments of dress is conceded
by leading modistes to be on the increase, and
even the most ordinary of street, gowns Is only
made at a high figure. Perhaps the acme of thU
extravagance was reached by the woman, who as
the report goes, paid a single cost timer $200 000 for
her gowns.
The portable schoolhouses now In use in Boston
are proving a great success In helping the school
board out of present difficulties caused by lack of
room for scholars. These contrivances may be
set down in school yards or other available places
like the voting booth? familiar on Election Day.
Since they are" easily carried from one place to
another, they are of great advantage 'as the
centres of school population shift from time to
tune Forty-three of these were opened last week
and they were placed so near to the regular school
houses, which have usually ground space In the
yard, that the children are able to enlov all th.-
privileges of a fully equipped school. *By th s
means the school board in Boston feels confident
that It can accommodate the school population as

The employment of Chinese girls as telephone
operators Is an innovation probably soon to be
come an established fact in San Francisco. The
large number of Chinese subscribers in that city
has long made It necessary to have a central
stHtlon where ii:.- operators speak the Chinese
language. Men have held these positions hereto
fore, but the company finds that girls will answer
its purpose better. Intelligent girls will 1..- pro
eared from the missions, and a natron will be
engaged to see that they are properly protected.
Six operators will be needed for the < in--.
system. An interesting feature of their duties will
be the making of tea, mi.-.- Chinese etiquette re

How should he know, who hath not won
Sure victories from sun to sun-
How can he know, who hath not tried
The peril of the mountain side.
What strength of arm is his- what ze.t
In combat with the brave to deal?
What prowess and what skill he hath
To find his footing on the patli
To ding, and cling, and always keep
His hold of faith along the steep?
Who tries is also tried. Who dares
To scale the h.iirhts. their danger shares.
But on the cliffs uneven face
He rinds <\-teh day a higher place.
His strength expands: he thrills to know-
How broad the breathing places grow;
And every hour some «am Is found.
Some view from wider vantage ground.

Courts Building of th,- details of two attempts.
at suicide made on Tuesday nisht by Charles F.
Jones, the valet whose testimony is relied on to
convict Albert 11. Patrick, the lawyer, accused
of Ike murder of William Marsh Rice. Since the.
hearing in the forgery case against Patrick
: Jones has been confined at No. L'tHt West Forty
fourth-st.. .i private sanatorium. Here he has
| been persistently watched ¦by two policemen,
who. knowing that he hail once attempted sui-
c ide, were warned not to lose sight of him for
I a moment. On Tuesday night, while the two
I policemen marc with Jones he suddenly seized a
large bottle of tonic which stood on a table and
dashed it against an iron radiator in the room,
breaking it.
The neck if the bottle was left whole, with
a large splint.-! of jassred glass attached to it.
Jones, holding this in his hand, attempted to
stick the broken end into his throat. One of the
policemen, who was a step or two away, jumped
at him. and caught the arm holding the glass.
Jones struggled violently to release himself, an.l
the two rolled over and over on the floor.
Finally, the policeman succeeded in forcing
Jones to let go of the bottle neck. and. he was
allowed to rise. He had not reached his neck
wi»h the glass, although he made several de
: termined efforts to do so. He threw himself on
the bed. apparently exhausted. He lay there
; fate down a moment. Then, glancing at the
| head of th" bed, another Idea for suicide was
suggested to him. and he immediately tried to
! put it into execution.
The bed is an iron one. The. uprights at the
I head are a little less than a f«>ot apart. " Grasp
ine two of these Jones drew himself upward,
forcing his head between the uprights, which
held his head fast. Then he made a quick
muscular movement, and tried to throw his
body off the bed.
This movement, had he been allowed to com
plete it. on 1.1 have broken his neck. The two
policemen sprang to the bedside and interposed
their arms in such a manner as to prevent Jess I
from throwing his body off it.
The valet then lay hack on the bed in a state
j of physical and mental collapse.
Mr. Garvan would not give the names of
¦ either of the policemen. He said, that Jones was
I quiet yesterday, and no further attempts on his
life were expected. Nevertheless, he would be
watched more closely than ever.

Rlverhead. Long Island. Sept. IS (Special).— Th«
progress and possibilities of vegetable and fruit
growing on Long Island are illustrated in the ex
hibits at the Suffolk County Fair, which opened in
Riverhead on Tuesday and continues through Fri
day, although the conditions of the growing season
have been almost universally unfavorable. Ex
tremes of heat and moisture impaired vegetation.
It i M therefore no small surprise to the officers
of the fair to find so many exhibits of a superior
quality. The display of potatoes has never been
excelled here. There are also creditable displays ol
cauliflower, celery, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant
(one specimen weighing eight and one-half pounds),
melons, squashes, green beans, lima beans, btets.
turnips, cumumbers. I snaagl . green corn. etc.. and
also of corn, dry beans and similar product!", In
the fruit department the exhibits, while compara
tively meagre in extent, are surprisingly fine in
An interesting display in the vegetable hall is a
collection of vegetables, fruits, plants and flowers
grown in the light soil of the Manhattan State
Hospital Farm, at Central Islip. as a result chiefly
of the labor of lunatic patients under the direction
of the farmer, florist and gardener and the staff
officer!*. It occupies a space of about *• by S feet.
The exhibits of horses, cattle, sheep, swine and
poultry are numerous and exceedingly good.
