r TT'IS making a big claim for a coat to
Xname It the newest, but while it may
i seem that I am taking considerable li
cense and authority, I do. in all serions
if ness, think that this Is not only the new-.
est. but also one of the ninft satisfae-.-
tory garments that I have ver seen for
. the coming season. And this Is to be,
&from all Indications, a season when coats
are to be well to the fore. In fact, the
.,i& Creators of the modes appear to he dl
5 .Tiding their attention between dresses.
'., eults and coats, for If dresses are to re
' tain their popularity, then coats must
:' 1 'made equally attractive.
Before coats w$re in the demand that
S they have acquired the last few seasons,
certain fabrics, usually referred to as
j' staples, were set apart for their making.
Today almost any fabric may be adapt
sel.,wlth pleasing results. There are
coats, for Instance, where the entire
.Garment is of woolen goods, of wool
"and 'cotton, or silks. Even the materials
'whlch we have been wont to classify
r "I aress stuns are now used for coats.
DSV!!2F.ftThe coat depicted today verifies this
Ig''stattment, for it Is made of trlcolett

S, -i'lHsed-for tho smartest new frocks. Right

K -no 'fry neavy. j. toiu you or tms tex-
ipjj a. ture eany in me season, wnen it was
PS-1 a "shown at the spring openings, but since
tHS lethal time It has leaped into popularity.
kK " woais maae or mis material are stun-
ning, thougn, or course, expensive, as
x 'the' cost of the yardage is high They
.,, are lovely, and especially so when the
' trlcolett is combined, as the model of
,, today, with velours. In the case of this
Ooat, the belt, sleeves and upper part
of the garment are of the silk, and the
& lower part of the coat, the cuffs and

for fall coats.

It seems a pity. If he is as line as you

No Delays. No Red Tape. Contributions Cabled Weekly. The
Money You Give This Week Will Be Doing Its Work Next Week
Only a baby of two,
Brown-eyed and curly and wee:
But the small face is shrunk
And the big eyes are sunk ,
For that baby is starving, you see. .
Only the cries of a child, .
Fevered and famished and ill;
Whose monotonous plaint
Grows each hour more faint,
Until, with the dawn, it is still.
Only a mother's low sob,
As she clings to the babe at her breast:
Till at last she is told,
As she feels it grow cold,.
The worst that her fears have expressed.
Only a poor little mound,
Out on the hillside alone;
Where a woman apart,
In her anguish of heart,
Low huddled, unsolaced, makes moa"n.
In the far-reaching distress throughout Italy today,
the mortality is greatest among those who are the least
resistant among the aged and the infirm, and among the
little babies and young children. Throughout the length
and breadth of the Italian Peninsula, in the existing con
ditions of extreme want among so many thousands of the
poor and destitute, Death, is making a big harvest among
these defenseless little ones, and daily snatching many wee
'mites of humanity out of the arms of unnumbered despair
ing mothers. It is to relieve these desperate conditions,
and to do so quickly, before it is too late, that this Organi
zation is dedicating its efforts. Will you not help? Will
you not rescue some failing baby, which is even now slip
ping out of its mother's clasp, and 'restore that despairing
woman to hope and happiness?
Kindly send us a check now, forwarding the same to
our Pennsylvania representative, the "Italian Committee
of the Emergency Aid," in the care of Mrs. Benjamin
Miller, 1428 Walnut street, Philadelphia, and stating with
your remittance that the same is for "The Immediate
Relief to Italy Fund."

tered on In accordance with the cs,unI
of other folks had cast more than It
vvfu worth ; this was especially true of
'he canvassing and of working foe my
ooard at Mrs. Warrington's, whereia
tho employment which I had obtained
mi my own Initiative or to wnieh I
had been guided unawares had been
worth while. Mrs. Carruth was the one
Ptrton alive to whom I could have'
Broken freely, but she was nov far
away and burdened with heavy anxieties
of her own; before she had been at
home long enough to call on me in
Bellington let alone have me unload
my tioubles upon her she was resided
t Huston by a telegram from Hcscn
saying mat Richard, who had been ail
ing for some time, was now stricken
with typhoid fever; accordingly a sister
of Mrs. Carruth's was keeping house
for Sin Carruth, the younger boys and -farmhands
at Twin-Oaks, while the
mother of the family was in Boston with
Itlchard and Helen. The latter, in the
midst of htr many cares, took the time
to tell .me this and the news brought
home In me. alone with A rieen sens
f of personal grief, the realization that
no life worth living is free from trouble
and anxiety and also seemed to say
that on each one of us devolves the
responsibility for facing and solving
unaided her own perplexities.
Even so, at the corner of South Union
street. I heard a step behind me, then a
tall figure came alongside, and I glanced
up to see Professor Freeland looking
down at me with a smile that was like
an Interrogation point: "Why, Alice! I
wanted to speak to you, but supposed
you were In senior meeting. What does
this mean?"
