Imported and Domestic Creations Shown by

The fall and winter gowns which are on display
at Arnold. Constable & Co.'s store, Nineteenth-at.
anfl Broadway, are distinguished b7 their extreme
daintiness and wealth of detail. They are ex
hibited la th* light and beautiful showroom on the
second floor, and no effort has bees spared to
make an attractive display.
Among the dozens of ooatamaa. Imported and
domestic, tons has received more attention than
an afternoon gown cf reseda green messaliae ana

darker and lighter shade cf green. Beneath this
Jacket there Is a blouse of filet lace, with sleeves

the messalins fall* over tho eieevea nearly to the
elbow. The skirt has a full yoke effect of the filet

Another efl ••• . costume Is made of blue and

White crochet lace makes the collar, and scallops

white— give an artistic touch. Another striking
touch Is a narrow band of turqucis* blue velvet

around, and la feather stitched down four ruches
from the waist line.
The velvet flowers which are on exhibition m the
BhowToom are beautiful novelties. They lack tha
heavy look that most flowers rr.&iie from this ma

are made up with silk. Roses, panales, hyacinth"*

The eatin and crepe department at this store con

Sabbath, spoke of the sanctity of tit» marriage- tow

In this connection, to quota a Washington paper, ha
declared "that the modern flat, tli- apartment house,

The remarks of the Lord Archbishop of Canter

If we look at It In a practical way we may learn
much that has escaped our attention heretofore.
It is an undisputed (act that the love of home
Is universal, even among the lower animals. We
know that horses, dogs, cattle. pigs and cats will
travel Immense distances to reach what has long
been home to them, even when the new location
was a. hundred times better for them than the ol<l.
Now, what is true of animals Is also true of human
beings. There are exceptions, but generally chil
dren become strongly attached to home, and this
attachment clings to them in adult life. One may
say: "But If the horn© Is In a bad neighborhood,
with foul surroundings, would a child removed from
It to a healthy atmosphere desire or lon* for the
old home?" Let me. ... answer, instance the case
of several children from the slums ofV York,
living in a court where the sun seldom atone, where
th* odors of rotting vegetables and carrion filled
the air. They were ragged and filthy, n They lived
most on the refuse of slop tubs. They had never
seer the country and knew absolutely nothing- of It.
The-e children were taken to a farm, giver, new,
dean clothing, fresh beds and the best of food.

work done for women by this progressive club there

to include busy people of all kinds, whether In tha
mercantile establishment, the factory and shop, the
schoolroom, the office or the family. Housekeepers,
wagaworke-rs and salaried women are all Invited to
meet on common ground, with one object — to dignify
labor; and one aim— development of a high and

Thera are classes la English branches, basketry.

In this voyage was to see something of the war in
the Far East before all the Russian battleships
were gone. Accordingly we steamed through tha
Mediterranean as rapidly as if we had been carry-
Ins Admiral Togo back to Port Arthur after a well
earned holiday In Mayfair. We left Alexandria
with, full coal bunkers and proceeded more leisurely
down the Red Sea toward the adventure I am about
to relate.
On the second day about sunset we sighted a Rus
sian cruiser— of those prowling-, interfering
craft that overhaul you and want to see your
ehip'3 papers. She was cruising a mile or so away
on our starboard beam, and as we watched her
from the deck we observed that she suddenly caur.e
about and. putting on all steam, started to crosa
our bows. At the same moment a puff of smoke j
came from her and in a few seconds ■ shot
ploughed the sea ahead. There was general excite- '
ment when it passed from one to another that wa
were the object of chase. Lord Ringmer darted up
the ladder to the bridae. and. after a brief con
sultation with tho captain, we heard him say in his
irascible way: "Give her all you can and we'll soon
■how this bouncing pirate what the Sayonara can
do. You say she has the heels of anything on this
sea: now prove it."
The skipper, who was a fierce old sea dog. sprang
to the telegraph ani rang down: -Full speed
The Sayonara. her course slightly changed. Bprans
into new life. it was the firs: time she had been
caned upon to show her white heels to a Russian,
and the Red Sea had to stand aside. The smoku
from her funnels seemed to scribble, "Good after
noon; can't stop." in our wake, and as If the cruiser
had seen and deciphered the defiant valedictory the
distant boom of a big sun reached our cars across
the intervening space.
••Ils a blank charge this time," said a voice at i
my ear. and turning I saw the Japanese officer by !
my side. Ail his ex-naval soul was la his black eyes
&3 he added: "They do that, you know, not «jo much
from fear of hitting us as to avoid giviag their gun
ners away."
"Look," I replied. "th« captain's holding a con
sultation on the bridge. Lord Rlngtaer and tha
chief are trying to dissuade him from flight."
"Don't you see." said the Japanese with a twinkle.
Tie feels responsible for his lady guests in the
•vent of a shell or two coming aboard, and ia pro
; testing as a matter of form, but he's relying oa tha
skipper to insist on a run. As a matter of fact, the
I captain of a yacht oas no supreme authority with
tne owner on board, but tae passengers doa't know
j that."
During the first part of the chase toe women on
board enjoyed the fun. but when a fourth shot was
fired and the scream of its flight was heard over
nead they began to realize the gravity of the situa
tion. Their faces Marched a little as they gathered
!n groups on deck and tried to smile In a way that
harmonized la some sort with th* exuberant spirit*
of Lord Ringmer. The Sayonara had now got up
to her full speed and was increasing tae distance
between us and the Russian. We were congratu
lating ourselves upon this when another shot fell
about a hundred yards astern of us. The women
screamed In chorus, and those nearest to the Indian
princes were gracefully supported to deck chairs
Lord Rir.gmer thoughtfully ordered brandies asa
eodns from below.
"What a 'Ark if they should actually hit us."
remarked tha Japanese to me In a low tone, "and
then have to admit to the British Government that
!t was a mistake— that they were firing at another
■vessel half a mile away, or something of that sort"
Again a shot whistled through th- air. It cam*
even nearer us than the other. Tnetr fears !a
creaslr.g. the women surrounded Long Rlr.gmar aatl
begged him to stop the yacht for their sake.
'My dear ladies." he said, "it is for the skipper,
and net me. to decide. He knows what's best and
I mustn't interfere with him. Besides, we're g-iin
lr.g oa th* Russian fast, and the danger grows leas
•very morcerx"
But they would not be reassured. Some half a
; dozen of than made for the brldg* and appealed
frantically to the captain himself In vain.
"I am in charge of the S^yoaara." he cried,
"and I'll see her through. That rascally Russian

He rang the telegraph again to give additional em
phasU to hi» remarks.
Suddenly there was a heavy crash astern. Th*
Sayosiara. staggered, and splinters fell about th«
deck: a shot had struck us. The consternation was
extreme, and some passengers mada a rush toward
the captain, with the Intention of forcing, him to

caw his way to triumph.
"I'm hanged if I don t do It!" he hissed between
I his teeth, while the list shook angrily. "But." he
added, turning to the Japanese, "you'd better
speak to his lordship t'.rst."
Tha Japanese took Lord Rlcgmer as:d» and ex
plained the matter to him.
"Bravo: We'll do It." cried Lord Ringmer. "X
grur. 1 idea!" And ha clapped th« Japanes* heart
ily on the back.
"H.iv* X got your permission, my lord?" asked
the captain in a tone that Implied that this was
something mure, than the mere management of
the ship.
"Rather," was tha laughing reply. "It's too good
a chaaoe to lose."
The captain Immediately put his hand on MM
telegraph and rang down, 'Stop her." but his
face showed that It waa no such hi^h and holy
feeling a.3 submission a.r.cl obedience to taa Russian
summons that prompted the action.
Th* Sayonara's engines ceas«d to throb, and In
a few minutes the- Russian cruiser overhauled us
and stood some two or three hundred yards away.

was rowed over to us.
With the Japanese and Lord Rrngmer at his
elbow the captain received them very politely and
explained that we and the Sayoaara were entirely
at his service.
"I should think so." said the Russian, a hull
necked pompous man. who was. wa afterward
learned, th« first lieutenant of the cruiser. "TVe
had a very good mind to blow you out of th«
water. You can't anas your fingers at Rusaiao
guns, you know."
Lord Ringmer. as owner of th» yacht, offered
many apoloeiea and begged him to accept th»
hospitality of the Sayonara. The captain, who had
suddenly acquired a politeness quite foreign to his
nature, then led the way to his stAteroom to anew
the ships papers. After ordering the steward to
bring champagne and exchanging som» whispered
words with the Japanese, Lord Rlnginer followed.
Some minutes passed, during which we inspected
the cruiser through our glasses, as wall as the
deeper.ins twilight would allow. Then our cap

"Very well," said th« Russian. -Til return to

Lord Ringmer. with his sweetest smile. "Ther«

At this moment Lord Ringmer pinched my arm

is in your line. Come with me "
Greatly perplexed I followed with him aftsr the
