New Fall Suits. If a woman can not appear well turned out this season it must surely be for' lack of thought, for when combinations rule the mode, a limited expen diture is never a bar to smart ness. Last year's dress or suit can very easily be brought up-to-date by the addition of a new coat, or hew trimmings in some of the latest materials. The best models seen from fa mous French sources, sho.v odd coats and frocks, or skirts if they belong to the tailored class. Some good-looking suits turned out by New York designers, in practical broadcloth, and serges, or basket weave woolens, have as collars, belts, or other trim mings, pieces of expensive bro caded woolens, while buttons covered with the same materials are used on coat and skirt to car ry out the ensemble. Coat and Skirt Lines. Fancy coats are the rule in all the new suits. Blouses built on Cossack and Russian lines are very much liked, especially by the younger set, and on these wide girdles and sashes klay an important part.

New ork, IJesigners anu Makers of Mccaii rauerns. lowed, waistcoats in con trasting color and material, give the re- - - i lief that present ornate modes demand. Loose hanging coats are the rule, even the extreme cutaway styles hang away from the figure below the line of the bust in front and the straight ' 'up and down' ' back, which re- rtnr.es the size of hips by increas- . i ing the girth at the waist is al- most universally seen.

Tassel trimmings and beaded garnitures are very much used, and little Turkish jackets hanging well away from the fig ure at the waist line and slit to shsw the dress or sash beneath are smartly endorsed. Plaids and Plaids and more plaids, in an infinite variety of colorings and all sii-ed blocks are used for combinations, skirts, coats and for all trimming nnrtioses.

The new cor set models just launched at all UD-to-date stores and depart ments, show a great advance, se curing comfort and grace, on lines which mould the average figure into correct proportions corresponding with the latest mode. Warner rust-proof cor sets can be relied upon for au thoritative latest styles, as well as for satisfactory wear, and any type of figure suited since models are varied. Braziers. wifVi thp Inw-toDDed corset that is a favorite, a brazier is quite necessary to hold the fig ure trim and taut, yet allow it to yield to every motion as fashion now demands It is a long time since it was deemed necessary that a woman should be uncomfortable in ord pr to be smart, in fact, no one ever looks well wearing an ill- i , r , avyuowu scuiuv.ui, - Loose fitting is the rule but the fit is more than ever important at a time when outlines are in dicated rather than denned.

WIN I hK llflKh nt hi tail wnnu wi THE BROOD MARE Plenty of Exercise Necessary to Pioduca Hesltiiy Foals. Oue of the most important points la oaring for brood mures is to give them plenty of exercise, writes A. C Becker in American OJiivator. I prefer to use my Li roml mure In a team, but not to do imy heavy work which would be HUely to cause a strain. Keep her sharp shod to lessen danger of nlior tiou. 1 don't (Mill; that heavy draw ing hurls n l.ro :i! mare as Ion;; us she is Hot severely hacked or jerked. Be careful not to give her too much liny, us she is apt to eat too much if given a chance. 1 prefer mixed clover and timothy liay. 1" imI more grain and less hay. 1 prefer 4run t oals. 1 generally feed a half gallon of bran and a half gallon of chop at each feed, tiive the mare some roots, as it helps to keep her bowels regulated, and you will lie less troubled with the colt having consti pation. If you have mi roots feed salts occasionally. I liruil.v believe in work- in;;' in v mares until foaling time. When the coil is constipated I use fresh butter and a tablespooufiil of whisky three times a day. Also it is a stood practice to inject oil. It pays to lose a little sleep If you want to raise colts. ISe on hand to as sist the mare in foaling if necessary. Disinfect the string before tying the navel. I have had more trouble with constipation than with Joint ill and be lieve it is caused by not keeping the mare's bowels loose enough. Poultry Notes. If you do not grade your eggs some one else will and you will pny him for doing it. There is no stock that pays a higher rate .of interest on an investment than poultry, although many farmers con sider it of little value. Bv careful breed inn nnd feeding the Maine experiment station has increas ed the average egg production of some breeding slock from l'JO to 14-1 eggs per year. Poultry requires plenty of fresh air, but not of the drafsy kind. It is bet ter to have a whole side of the house open than to have the air come through a knothole. FOR THE CHILDREN Washington's Career. George Washington was born Feb. no it'!1' !n Wnxtmnrntanri coiintv. n. Hi's father. Augustine Washington, was a planter. George Washington went to school until he was sixteen vears old. lie became a surveyor. At the age of nineteen he was made adju tant of Virginia troops. Two years later he was made commander of a mil itary district of Virginia. The follow ing year he was sent on a mission to the French beyond the Allegheny river. His first battle was with the trench in 1754. He was lieutenant colonel at that time and defended Fort Necessity. He was in the battle of Monongahela n 1755 nnd commanded on the fron tier till 17."".

The avernge inlittel American -who has never seen the ocean has no real idea of the force of its waves. He reads about the storm, of boats being carried away and bulwarks stove, but he does not realize the steam hammer blows that may be struck by mere water. A recent storm on the British coasts received the otliclul designation of a storm of "extreme force." A picture taken in Hastings harbor shows the concussion with which the waves struck the sea wall, sending the spray apparently higher than the buildings along the street. Blocks of concrete :ind iron railing were torn from the new parade extension at Caroline place and tossed back Into the road way as if they had been bits of plank. Timber work that had with stood the stress of years wits torn nimrt and carried away. Basements were flooded along all the seaward face of thetow-n. Such a storm when it sweeps over a ship will sometimes carry away al most everything on deck. Deck houses are often smashed, nnd the lifeboats are often stove in and ruined. Various attempts have been made to devise motors to develop power from the force of the waves. The amount of energy washed through their lack of success is beyond estimate. If the power of the sea could be used It would drive the machinery of an un limited number of plants. -Excaange.
