7 y TOPICS OF INTEREST TO EVERY WOMAN EDITED BY JULIA CHANDLER MANZ WAWwWW)VlAAAn1AAMAAAAAAAAAAn1A BLASTING REPUTATIONS IS A COWARDLY THING OF TWO MATERIALS. ? J A PERSIAN FEOOK. Plaid and pa!n materials are effec tively combined in man of the suits for spriiig. This is one of the most at tractive The smoothly cut Jacket is of Putch blui and white in checks and is finished plain at neck and sleeves. A coliar ami cuffs of white linen embroid ered wiih rose-colored floss are worn, and the laigf buttons are of white pearl. The skirt shows the same colors as the jacket, but in a plain mixture of medium tone The curvnK edce of the front is faced with tile plaid and the side is draped a little N.-vr Hr.-i.Klnc Jacket Dnlntj. An entirely transformed crment is the dressing jacket. It used to be a very utilitarian and generally homely jacket, made wuli a deep frill of lace at the r.c-k anl the same trimminc on the !bo sieews Hut the modern dressing jacket is a daintily beautiful article, and serviceable as well, for it is invariably made of some pretty washing material. A charming dressing Jacket is the "Dresden Int. a" model. It is made of white was'i silk patterned with delicate wreaths of pale pink roses, and is trimmed with blue satin ribbon The lacket Is edged with a deep frill of the net. and is draped up just before the rill with the satin ribbon. A long ir.,ped and pointed collar of pale blue tilk is edged with a shorter frill of ream net. ar.d the elbow Meeves are finished with net frills tied up with satin ribbon. ODDS AND ENDS.

If women were In politics, I wonder what they would do when they were made victims of "Investigations" of a class with some that aro ordered to day. You know, as little girls, they never were "brought up" to play that way. and I honestly believe well, it is scarcely safe to say what might happen If a lot of women, whenever they wanted a posi tion or something else in possession of another. Just got together in organized, legalized committees and pulled and tugged and fought and investigated until they tore reputations into shreds, and then noisily put the holders out. without once having found a real thing against them. Yet that Is what Is often done In the big game of politics. I Of course, the aggressors, never would admit it. Indeed, no: they are much too astute for that. They declare there Is something wrong in the administration of affairs, something that must be set aright, and they gravely, and very ex travangantly, go about their work, with fine protestations of honest purpose on their lips, but with a murderous, dagger up their sleeves, and something worse in their hearts. It Is all "for the good of the service." they say; but many mere women are perfectly sure there Is a great big "I" In the service. Ttcn.on In Olivlnns. These women. Just sitting by and quiet ly looking on, count it a very grievous thing to blast a man's reputation for the paltry sake of an office or other advant age he holds: and they say to them selves, and perhaps to each other, that they never could and never would en dure that sort of thing. Because, you see. it is so very trans parent that most of the 'investigations" cover a multitude of other things per sonal ambitions, political gain, the trans ference of power and a few more im portant items. And the man's reputation "Why. that docs not bother them at ad. 'i..ey say, these women who are look ing on. that they would be "game" to the last, that If they or their friends held office and were guilty of wrong doing in one way or another, they would set their lips and square their shoulders for any kind of investigation that might be forthcoming. Hut an for standing for the horrible method of being ruthlessly fired at without the Justification of guilt that would not be the way of women. For they count it a mighty unfair manner of plas-ing a big game. Nol Worth the Cnniilc. And thre are a few other things in politics that they do not admire over much. They think that, in campaigns that are nation-wide or those that are local, it is nothing short of disgraceful to descend to the horrors of mud-throwing and to drop into the wretched per sonalities that have disfigured many an important campaign. And they say to themselves at least, that is what they ought to say that if they would not be calm, dispassionate, unemotional and the like, then they would not be so very pleased or proud to find themselves sitting in the high scats o' the mighty in government. For If they must contend In that way for an office, the game scarcely would be worth the candle. Mut tie fact is. you know, that Is rot the way women proceed In the struggle for ascendenc In their big clubs It Is Mailnm President this, if you please, and Madame Secretary that. If you will listen to hear it: and their cam paigns are fragrant with the odor of vio lets and roes Each Is perfectly sure that the other would make a quite charming leader if she chanced to be elected and everything is smooth and harmonious. And they are particularly careful to make sure that there shall be nothing more in evidence than the friendliest kind ot competition. And as to trumping up a lot of silly charges that have no basis in truth, as to tearing into fragments a reputation that had known no mark against it nd as to removing an entirely capable president, for the selfish sake of letting ome one else slip in that has never been their way. And here's hoping it never may be. Prnii Snlnil. "Wash, soak, and steam one pound of prunes until tender. Do not sWeeten them. When cold remove the stones and fill the vacancies with chopped walnuts.

There seems to be no waning of the Russian Idea and Its charm still holds.

JOSEPH HAYDN (1732-1869): ' (CojrtiiSt. ltlj, ij Ths Associated N'ewsrsper School, Ine.) VVV Joseph Haydn, "the father of the sym phony," was born In 1732. His father was a cartwrlght. unable to read or write, who loved music His mother was a cook, and Haydn always believed that shewas the finest woman that ever lived. Because of his voice .and his taste for music, a distant relative, schoolmaster, and choir regent of Halnberg, offered to tako charge of "Sepperl," as they called tho child, and train him. So, before ho was six. Haydn began his struggle with the world. In his new home he got more thrashings than food, and he was con tinually In trouble because of his fond ness for mischief and practical Jokes. When he was eight years old he became one of the choir hoys of St. Stephen's. When he was sixteen his voice failed and he was turned adrift. An acquain tance offered him lodging, and shared his food with him. Then came years In which ho fought bitterly. Just to live.

Addressed to Women That Backache of Yours Is one of nature's warnings when all the joy of living has vanished because of trouble peculiar to womankind. Don't disregard this warning. Don't procrastinate. Now is the time to take steps to regain health and strength. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription NO ALCOHOL NO NARCOTICS Has been recommended for over forty years as a remedy for ailments peculiar to women. Thousands of grateful women have testified to its effectiveness. You, too, will find it beneficial. As made up by improved and exact processes, the "Favorite Prescription" is a most efficient remedy for regulating all the womanly functions, correcting displacements, as prolapsus, anteversion and retroversion, overcoming painful periods, toning up the nerves and bringing about a perfect state of health. This tonic, in liquid form, wu clerked orer 40 years ago for the womanly system, by R.V. Pierce, M. D., and has benefited many thousand women. Now it can also be obtained in tablet form from dealers in medicine, or .end 50 one-cent stamps for a trial box. Every woman ought to possess Dr. . In Vienna he lived in a room that had no windows and no stove. The rain and snow made their way through the roof, lie worked sixteen hours a day; but he said to a friend "When I sat down at my old wormeaten clavier, I envied no lane his good fortune."' lie nas composing all the time and studying and gradually his circumstances improved. Always he made friends. After serving as conductor .f the pri vate band of Count .Morzin. he wan made director of Prince Ksterhazy's orchestra, nt that time the heat in Austria. lie was then twenty-eight years old. Two years later I'rlnce Paul Ksterhazy was suc ceeded nv his brothrr Nicholas, known as the inaEniticcnt. who was wealthy and ranked with kincs but who today Is re membered only by the fact that for thirty years he had among his retainers the Im mortal Haydn. Haydn had an excellent orchestra un der his dlrecUon: he was Indefatigabls In composition. Long before he realized It. his fame had spread all over Europe. He was constantly urged to go abroad: but he refused to leave his "beloved prince." In 1779 the theater at Esterhaz burned down, and Prince Nicholas planned to go to Paris. To hasten this and so bring about a much-needed vacation for his orchestra. Haydn composed In a playful spirit, the "Farewell" symphony dur ing the playing of which the musicians one by one blew out their candles, gath ered up their Instruments, and left. When only two of the musicians remained, th prince saw the point. "If all go. we may as well go too." he said, and Haydn hail his way. Prince Nicholas died In 1730. At the age of fifty-eight Haydn started on his first visit to London, which brought him many triumphs. He returned to Ger many to be lionized, and wealth flowed In upon him. He went back to London and receded even greater honors. Ox ford gave him the degree of doctor of music. He was moved to emulate Han del, whom he called the "master of us all." and one of his great masterpieces, Tlie Creation." is the result. 'This was followed by "The Seasons." His hard work made him ill. and. following the report of his death, a mass was cele brated In his honor in Paris. When he heard of it. Haydn said: "I am much obliged to those gentle men, and If they had Informed me I should have come myself to applaud the mass." He died In his country home, near Vienna, on May 31. 1S09. Haydn's work is full of the Joy of liv ing. The adjective "heidnlsch" In Ger man stands for "heathenish.'' In Eng lish Haydnlsh stands for everything In music that Is particularly melodious and Jolly, simple, unaffected, and bright.

The drippincs or butter will mix better If rubbed Into the flour with the tips of the lingers, instead of the ralms of the hands. Water should be added gradually and mixed with the other Ingredients as It is poured into the bowl: this will prevent hard lumps from forming. A knife will serve well to mix pastry that Is very short. The paste, or dough, should be rolled forwards, and the rolllns-pin lifted after each roll. Iastry to which baking rowder has been added should be placed In the oven as quickly as possible, otherwise the effect of the baking powder will be wasted.
