Plaid and pa!n materials are effec

Putch blui and white in checks and is
finished plain at neck and sleeves. A

The skirt shows the same colors as the

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
ODDS AND ENDS.
To prevent frying: fish from becom
ing greasy and soav'en, have the fat in
which it is to be fried almost boiling
hot before putting the fish in the pan.
A blue smoke will be rising from the
fat when It Is in the proper condition.
To keep heavy jrranlteware in good
condition, boll it in soda water for
five or ten minutes twice a week.

Br FnAXCES SHAFFER.
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
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
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
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

that the other would make a quite
charming leader if she chanced to be
elected and everything is smooth and
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

"LEARN ONE THING EVERY DAY."
No. 3. JOSEPH HAYDN (1732-1869): '
(CojrtiiSt. ltlj, ij Ths Associated N'ewsrsper School, Ine.)
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

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.

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

spirit, the "Farewell" symphony dur

one by one blew out their candles, gath

only two of the musicians remained, th
