wife- to these but she had futlcdMm In
that great essehtlat, comptoto comrade

spirit was the breaking up of the home,
the tragedy of divorce. Adaptability to
altered circumstances would have surely
averted this.
Prom time Immemorial, the economical
wlfa has been held up as the true Ideal
of womanly goodness and virtue, and. In
company with the good lady of Proverbs,
who rose so early and worked so unneces
sarily hard, has been eternally and with
a most tiresome persistence cited as the
real model.

Detectives In Great Crowd
Hears Evangelist.
DENVER, Sept. 13.-A largo squad of
plain clothes men from police headquar
ters mingled tonight with tho thousands
who crowded Into the great tabernacle
where Billy Sunday Is conducting his
revival. The detectives were watching
for members of a "snipper band" that
has operated two nights at the taber
nacle, with the result that four young
girls, listening Intently to the evangel
ist, lost their long lirnliR
Despite winter-like Weather, the crowds
attending tho three services at tho tabor
naclo were the largest that havo ever
heard Sunday In a slnglo day since the
revival began, a week ago. Ten thousand
persons heard the morning sermon, an
equal number was present this afternoon
and this ecnlng there were nc.irly 13,0u0.
Even then there was an overflow, hun
dreds standing outside the building In
spite of the cold.
Sunday delivered a general talk this
moinin? and tills afternoon took for his
subject, "The Time is Come." He declared
the race had reached a point where evil
and religion were engaged In a struggle
which puts Christianity at stake and that
only through a realization of the obliga
tion the world owes to God could calamity
be averted. He said there weie many peo
ple In front of him who wanted to pr.iy,
but did not know how, or weie afraid to
be sepn In the act He declared he would
act as proxy for these and asked If there
were nny persons present who desired
pra.er to b said for them. Immediately,
hundreds of hands shot up In all parts of
the building.
Tonight, Sunday talked on the "Ten
Commandments." tie --aid that there was
not a whole one left In the lot that man
had smashed them all.

just as their mothers say can just do
so; I won't, so there!" and little
Jimmy Southbreeze gave himself a
flop and settled under the pear tre.
"So sol" exclaimed his father, Mr.
Southbreeze. "then we know exactly
how you feel about it "
"Yes you do!" declared Jimmy,
with a great deal of energy for to
tell the truth he was quite disappoint
ed to find his father so calm.
"I'll scare my mother, anywa," he
decided and he meandered around to
where she was resting under the
eaves of the big barn.
x "I'm tired of minding and duins
things properly all the tune, mother "
said Jimmy, "I'm going to do smiii'
Ihing bad bad!" And Jimmy Mew
the words out so positively that two
little sparrows thought a storm must
surely be coming and they flew awy
to their nests!
"That's all right. Jimmy, dear. 1
gtiess it's just the heat thai bothers
you," replied Mrs. Southbreee placid
ly. "You go ahead and do vhateer
you like, and maybe you'll feel better "
Oh, dear me, but Jimmy was angr '
If any one thing made him crosser
thsm another it was to have Ins
mother talk to him as if he was a
weeny-tiny baby instead of a bi,
strong, healthy breeze able to do
things and take care of himself!
"I'll just show her how bad I tan
be and then I guess she'll be fright
ened and she'll know how very crown-
i-un and important I am," exclaimed
Jimmy as ne mew out ot tne yard in

lie Started on a journey in search oi

Now usually it jou search for '
trouble you can find it easy enough,
but Jimmy had very bad luck he
simply couldn't find anything bad to
You see he had been such a nice,
proper, helpful little breeze for so
long that no one even guessed he was
looking for trouble and wouldn't even
believe when they were told stupid
things !
The baby birds thought he had
come to help them and they wel
comed him joyously; the sunbeams
thought he had come for a frolic, the
flowers asked him to stop and play.
"No no no," shouted Jimmy
Southbreeze, "I've turned over a new
leaf I'm hunting something very bad
to do no time to play today!" and
he blew away as fast as ever he could.
But they didn't believe him not
they; they knew Jimmy! They said to
each other. "Let's just wait and see
what he does."
And if you wait, too, you will hear

I havo sat here, pen In hand, for hours
-here In my shabby lodging, with Its drnb
w.ills and flaring gns jet, Its cheap furni
ture and Its dreadful air of solltltde-and
my heart Is so full of memories that I
can scarce write! Ah! memories and old
i egrets, 1 will drive you away tonight,
and be the old light-hearted Ellen Adair
once more. Away with failure and loneli
ness! I must win out, I shall make good;
this Idle dreaming Is of no avail.
The rain Is dripping on the roof tonight
a gentle, quiet rain, unlike the wild
downpou rings of this strange, wonderful
country and tho Bound of It on tho root
takes me back to my little English village
on the Sussex Downs, where life ran In
as gentle courses ns the falling rain, and
1 was young and sheltered. Touth and
happiness! Oh, the sheer music of the
words! Yet there are greater things In
life than these, and I am learning them
now. For the old Ellen Adair was a child
ish, thoughtless person, who vegetated In
Iit quiet English village; and now, she
Is learning a harder lesson, and In a new
country, fighting a better and a worthier
It seems years, Instead of a bare two
months, since that sunny summer morn
ing when I sailed away from Southamp
ton dock with a big lump In my throat,
my wordly all In my shabby trunk, ?10
tucked away In a corner of my shabby
mourning frock, and a desperate deter
mination to make good In the new and
wonderful country to which I was going.
What crowded experiences have Inter
vened since then! and I, Ellen Adair,
an English girl, young and strong, and
ah! dear Heaven, still hopeful, am
liiclng this new worjd alone. And the
sheer lonesomeness of this rainy night
is dtlxlng me to write the story of my
life I feel and think like 40, but I am
only 24 ami In the old cracked mirror
opposite I seo a young face, with new,
tired lines mound the mouth. But there
Is added stiength and resolution there.
I must beg'n my tale In earnest now,
and awav with sentiment. In my life
there can bf but little room for that. I
am a worker, and must cease to dream.
My childhood was a happy one, and, be
ing happy, was uneventful. I was an only
child, and in spite of much petting re
mained comparatively unspoiled. How
well do I remember those old happy days
I In the English seaside town. My father.
a country doctor, was so busy that I
rarely saw him, but my mother was my
conbtant companion, and I Idolized her.
She was the kindly sharer of my joys and
of my sorrows, a real friend and com
panion. The tlrst break In my life was at the
age of 13. I was sent off to boarding
school in London, a quiet, unpretentious,
middle-class fcehool, where for two years
I was a pupil. But in that sheltered
haven we saw but little of London life.
Occasional visits to the opera were a
wonder and a glory the myriad glittering
lights of Shnftsbury avenue and Picca
dilly, the crowds of beautifully gowned
women and their conventionally garbed
male escorts, the swarming taxis it was
all so wonderful. Tho green beauty of
Kensington Gardens or Resent Park
was a favorite haunt for our afternoon
walk, and I .shall never forget my first
glimpse of the King and Queen, then
Prince and Princess of Wales, outside
Buckingham Palace
looKed with her golden hair, blue eyes
and delicate complexion! I fancied that
shu smiled at us school girls, and we all
loed her.
But a shadow fell on these happy days.
My father, the hard-worked doctor, died
suddenly, bequeathing to my mother and
me a mere pittance, and a little cottage
ho owned In the south of England, In the
heart of beautiful Sussex. There we took
up our abode. I was barely 17 then. At
first I found tho peaceful village life a
little dull. But I soon grew accustomed
to our quiet existence nnd mother and I
vegetated happily there. Books, our piano
and long walks on the Sussex downs were
our hobby. Oh! the beauty of the rolling
moorland, with its clumps of trees and
th lnzy cattle resting beneath, Its hum
ming Insect life and Its beautiful English
flowers. For seven years these things al
most satisfied me. I Eay "almost," for
at time.- a vague longing for a wider
liori.on would seize me, a vague longing
for "one crowded hour of glorious life"
bf-yond tho narrow negative happiness of
mv present quiet existence.
Of mm in that Sussex village there were

but few, and most of theso were married.
In our seven years there I had but one
proposal of marriage. He was tho village
apothecary, he sang In tho village choir,
he squinted dreadfully, and I hated him!
But I had Just one vestige of a love affair
the year before mother died, when I was
13. At a neighboring cottage that summer
nn .artist arrived. Not a professional
artist, but an amateur one. Ho stayed
six weeks, and he made a painting of our
little cottage, with the roses nnd honey
suckle clambering over Its whitewashed
walls nnd peering Inquisitively In at the
latticed windows. He thought It all beau
tiful. Many a day ho took afternoon tea
with mother and me In our small garden
overlooking the rolling downs. I thought
him very good looking. He was curiously
attractive, tall and dark, with a certain
odd Intonation In his deep voice. "Ellen
Adair, you strange child," said he to me
one day, "some day you will wake up and
your soul will grow. You will not always
stay here: one day you must learn the
How beautiful she I realities of life. Live up to the highest
always. You have great possibilities "
I remember a strange thrill went
through me at his words, and Just then
a lark rose from a clump of bog myrtle
nearby on the, moor and soared, caroltlng
her heart out, to the very heavens It
seemed emblematic of his words, "Live
up to the highest always!" And tho artist
man leaned back In hla chair and slowly
quoted the great words of Browning:
" 'The lark's on tch wing God's
In his heaven, all's right with the world '
"Remember that always, little girl." said
he 'When things go right, and when
things go wrong God's In His heaven,
all's right with the world!"

The autumn nnd winter suits displayed
by tin- shops show a number ot features
that stamp them dcllnltcly as tho product
of the season.
The plain coat and skirt that looked well
from ye:ir to year Is a thing set apart for
sports" wear. In this fashion era, and ab
solute simplicity of cut and design is mo
nopolized once more by the masculine
When the tide turns, however, woman
will, no doubt, appropriate . whatever
pleases her fancy In the tailored line.
But now. the coat Is cut not of many
colors, but with so many variations that
It Is hard to know just when a coat is a
coat and not the .upper part merely of
the costume.
Tho tush Is often the lino of demarca
tion and the coat ends In a wide Daring
skirt, that nt a distance resembles the
tunic. In reality. It Is the redlngote

There la A distinctive quality of fem
inity about many of tho present modes,
something of the charm nnd graco of a
bygono day.
That this can bo nchloved without loss
of tho practical Is well illustrated In tho
street costumo ahown today,
It Is a combination of silk nnd velvet,
velvet for tho collars, buttons and ribbon
sash, but It would bo quite as effcctlvo In
sergo or cheviot.
Tho basque, tho basque girdle tho scml
basque i wo aro ringing 'tho changes, but
tho motif Is tho same for morning, after
noon and evening wear. Yet Its severity
Is modified In almost every Instance to
conform to modern standards. This gen
eration refuses to bo bnckrammed and
boned Into Immovability and a higher
value Is set on supple muscles than on a
bedke without wrinkles.
Hero, tho basque Is buttoned down the
front qulto plainly, but tho fulness that
starts at tho sldo seam Is one of tlio
Innovations of the present day modiste.
Tho stiff high collar Bhows the trend
away from tho low-necked blouse. Thcro
Is a decided movement this season
toward restoring the collar to Its place
and to doing away with tho open-necked
Here, happily, we have a compromise.
It Is buttoned qulto high, yet enough of
the throat la free for ease and comfort.
Tho long Bleeve, that comes not only
over the wrist but almost to the knuckles,
li In evidence. It Is a dictate of tho
fashion authorities from which thcra Is
no reprlove for the prcsont.
The saBh, that appears at the back
or the side or front In nine out of ten
costumes, Is a narrow ribbon affair In

Judging from tho model frocks ex,

by tho shops for the general public,
wo are "reluctant to part with the tunic.
It has been on the carpet for so lonu
that one wonders. Whether women en
joy wearing something that dangles, a
superfluity to the act of being clad, or
whether it really Is becoming to tall
and short and thin and heavy, Is a maU
ter to bo decided In the futtlro when H
has given away to something else.
But the tunic Is hero In every shapa
arid form. Perhaps one of Ha charm''

The Illustration shows so effectively
tho fashion notoB of tho season that It
would mako an excellent model for th
collcgo girl or oven schoolgirl.
And It has tho advantage of being
suitable for the classroom or tho street
without chango or addition.
Popularity of Tltch Capes Also Is
Assured for Fnll Wenr.
The early autumn fur-wear. Is already
decreed and actually on the market, A
great demand will obtain for small neck
tics of marten and lynx, togothcr with
smartly designed fancies In ermine and
white conoy. Tt bo In the height of
fis.ilon, the smart woman will Include
marten and dyed coon In her wa.drobo,
while broad-Bhaped stoles of muskrat or
seal will be seen everywhere.
Fitch will ho as popular this season as
last, while chinchilla, otter, beaver nnd
monkey fur will hold their own.
Vested nnd wnlstcoats of fur will mod
ernize the old fur styles which this season
are to be reincarnated. Tho caped vestea
stylo Is exceedingly charming, nnd offers
a wide scope for variety.
A really handsome fitch cape was noted
tho other day, not so full that It rippled
at the waist line, but controlled In clever
fashion by being Invisibly fastened to an
under vest of glrdlcstylcd outlines made
of Bcal. These capes, bo Important a part
of the winter toilette of our debutants
grandmothers, havo once moro come to
tho front, and will hold a prominent plac
all winter.
A charming combination was accom
plished with a melon muff of fitch
trimmed with sealskin rosettes, and with
a black Bcal bow of tailored dimensions
adorning tho oval-shaped capo at back
and front. Handsome novelties In fur
pelts will abound this fall.
