THE TRAGIC SIDE OF
BEING WELL DRESSED
Easier Sonetuaes te Talk of Beraj
Well Glored aaT Well Shod
Taaa to Achieve It
, Br FRAJTCFS SHAFFER.
"Always be well gloved and well shod,
and the dress will' take care of itself.
It Is very simple, just a matter ol care."
No, that is not advice to the votaries
of fashion, simply a well-meant warn
ing to the less prosperous woman wage
earner. And one wonders how she takes
Because, while it may be quite simple
to the woman who never has found it
necessary to earn a slice of bread and
butter in her whole life, and perhaps
could not if she tried, it is .not so easy
to the other woman who must think
of room rent, of board bill and a few
other necessities before there is any
chance for the luxury of well-fitting
gloves and, smart-looking shoes.
She knows all too well that gloves
and shoes tell an eloquent story, and bit-J
ter experience has told and re-told her
that personal appearance counts mightly
with those who must work or a living.
But no one knows better than she' that
it is not so simple as it sounds. When
the weekly bills have all been paid there
may be. upon a pinch, barely enough
left to buy a pair of gloves, but the
shabby shoes must be shabby still for
many a weary day. And then, when the
shabby shoes are happily replaced, the
new gloves are through at the fingers.
And so It goes with the woman whose
wage is dishearteningly small.
And. vou know, these well-meaning
folk who never earned a dollar in their
lives, tell her to buy "one good tailor
made, suit and plenty of shirt waists."
And that sounds delightfully simple, very
practical, quite suitable and all that.
But, deary me, the poor woman, with
her mind on the tailor-made suit and her
fingers clutching a flat, flat purse soon
learns, much to her sorrow, that a "good
tailor-made suit" is far simpler to dream
about than to buy. For, the materials
that come within her means shrink at
thfT Hrt rainfall, or they wear up rough
or do something else that a "good tailor
made suit" never would be guilty of do
ing. And "plenty of shirt waists' Now.
doesnt that seem perfectly easy. 3nd
as smart as smart can be? If only laun
dr work might be done upon a wish!
But evervbody knows it cannot, and
even body knows that the woman whose
wage is down to a pretty low notchcan
not spare many dollars, or many dimes,
for the laundering of smart white waists.
To those who have just a fair amount
of money to spend, the advice, quite
likely, falls upon heedless ears, but
among the low-paid sisterhood the wom
en with pride at high-tide and funds at
low ebb there is a sort of protest, be
cause it sounds as if it were all a mat
iir of rarinir.
Anil the fact is. though there aremfchJ
worse things tlnn being poor ana earn
ing a very low wage, there is a hint of
tragedy in the problem of clothes for the
womaii whose dress ambitions soar prct
t high and whose possibilities are down
to almost rock-bottom.
For. while her ambitions may be called
iuitc unworthy, the instinct to shine in
the glorv of purple and fine linen seems
to be born in mankind.
And say what we like, it makes a
mi ht difference, the clothes we wear
.mil how we wear them.
Two RrmnrknMe Pictures.
Awhile ago two pictures were shown
ot Ethel Barrvmore, th.e actress, whose
beauty and charm aie acknowledged. In
the one she was an undeniably pretty
woman, daintily gowned in the most
graceful of summer frocks, with nothing
missing to add to her charm and nothing
added to draw from it.
In the other the artist had shown her
as a poor working woman and she
looked it Study her face. and the same
ft .nines were there, but s-omchow the
shabb dress, the worn, ill-fittmg coat,
and the pathetic out-fashioned hat were
s tragically ugly that one scarcely
thought of the features It'was the same
hair, ararnged in the self-same way. but
what a difference in the hats that were
p relied upon if The feet that in one
picture looked trim and pretty, in the
other spoke volumes on poverty; and the
hands that in one seemed exquisitely
aaint. anih lingering a light parasol,
in the other, clutching an un wieldly
bundle, looked heavy, work-worn, and
that was all.
Yet the feet and the hands were the
And tbat is where the tragedy of dress
Quite liUih there is many a woman in
the soci.il woild who feels that life Is
piett unequal because her allowance
for diess- does not permit her to vie
with tlios" aiound her In the splendor
of jewels and other adornment. But no
body thinks that she is given a serious
look at the ttaged of dress, for to the
majoiitj of the world she Is more than
"well gowned." in spite of her fewer
Tin1 Ileal 'Iru&nlj.
But the real tragedy strikes home, if
tragedy it may lie called, when 'the
woman, whos personal appearance
counts in the earning of dollars, finds
fingers persistently peeping Ironi well
mended gloves, shoes well past tho stage
of repairing and no money in her pocket
to replace them.
Yes. it is right easy to talk about al
ways being well gloved and well shod,
but it is not so easy to achieve it. And
as for me. I sometimes wonder at the
moral courage of some women who take
their modest wage, wear their ill-fitting
gowns and their hats of many seasons
before, and never show a sign of any
thing but bravery.
Because, whlie. of course, it ought not
to be so, the -orld has a way of show
ing a very smiling face and quite warm
hearted hospitality to the woman who
wears a well-cut gown, and it seems to
be an eloquent sort of passport w herever
she goes. While tho woman a bit rag
taggy and worn may find doors sharply
closed in her face.
The .Conquest of the Peaks.
"Lean Oae Tkwg Erery Day"
ij No. 4. RUWENZORI
! (Coprricht, 15U. by T& Associated Kewtptper School,, Inc.)
Yesterday you learned about the tam
ing of Mount St. Elias on our own con
tinent by the Duke of the Abruzzi; to
day you read of the conquest by this
same adventurer of a mountain that is
not really a mountain, but a group of
six peaks. Ruwenzori was considered a
"lsion for hundreds of years the "Moun
tains of tho Moon." For seventeen cen
turies these peaks remained unseen by
It was toward the end of the last cen
tury that the world began to hear the
mysterious name of Ruwcnzoi 1, and the
marvelous story of a range of snowy
mountains under the hot sun of erua
torial Africa. Several daring explorers
had been at their base, not seeing them
because of the ever-present clouds, or,
catching distant glimpses, had refused
to believe their ejes
It was the great explorer Stanley who
really discovered the range in lSSs After
thiv seeral men attempted to scale
these wonderful snowy peaks. There at
last were found the sources of the Nile.
In POt the Duke of the Abruzzi de
cided that he would like to find out more
about this mvsterious mountain, Ruwen
zori ("Rainmaker"), so named because
of the clouds that always cluster about
its summits. He carefully planned Mb
expedition, and set sail with his party
for Africa in the spring of 1906.
After their landing came first the jour
ney through the jungle. Along native
trails, over rushing streams, among
strange, weird tree growths, past wild
beasts of every sort, they finally reached
their permanent camping place, named
"Bujongolo," 1,350 feet above the sea.
In all, fourteen peaks were ascended
successfully by the duke and his party.
The whole expedition too four months,
and not a life was lost. The "Moun
tains of the Moon" were conquered:
Rjiwenzori was a mystery no longer.
it was found that Ruwenzori was in
fact a group of six mountains, and that
these had in all about twenty summits.
Ten of these summits arc higher than

The whole world seems to ,have con- ,
trlbuted to the display of lamps. Rarely
have there been Buch unusual lamps
shown as at present. Lamps which arc
exact copies of old antiques fit well with
the antique furnishings 'so much in
For those who stlil cling to tho
Oriental furnishings some exceptional
pieces are found in the "Damascus and
Benares table or standing lamps. These
have the shades lined with colored silk, t
through which the light glimmers in ai
pleasing effect. '
Chinese lamps are at the height of
their popularity. If you possess a rare
old Chinese vase, use it for the base of
the lamp. A silk shade with panels of
Chinese embroidery would be a suitable I
one for such a lamp. j
One Qhinese lamp was constructed
from an odd-shaped black hawthornc '
rose jar with a gold mounting. Exactly
matching this in color was the Chinese
silk lamp shade.
For the summer home are standing
lamps In white enamel and in reed, with
cretonne shades harmonizing with the
other furnishings in the room. More
pretentious standing lamps are of ma
hogany or carved wood, with elaborate
Mlk Frlncre Popalnr.
Silk fringe i now more popular than
the bead fringe used so extensively In
the past season. Silver and gold laces,
'little fancy cords, and silk roses are the
principal ornamentations for the silk
shades. A narrow old cold braid around
'the edge makes a happy finish. Crystal
lamps with cretonne shades are sum
mery and pretty. Pretty little gold com
position lamps with silk shades can be
purchased for $10.
There is a genuine art value in some
of the Teco pottery shown. Green is the
tint used lavishly In the different pieces,
but the colors of brown, russet, red, pur

This i- really a very simple dish The
art lies in the cooking. If it Is not done
with a loving hand and proper appre

dish indeed Cook two flno large ripe
tomatoes in water until tender enough
to press through a sieve that will re
tain the seeds. Return to the fire with
half a cup of best rice that lias been
cooked in broth or salted water until
well puffed up but not tender. Cook
until rice is done, then season with ilt,
pepper and butter. Also add a suspicion
of garlic, if you use it. The pllaf must
be neither dry nor too liquoid. but just
right to pour over, and mask, fricasseed
chicken or a dish of hot minced meat.

Increasing Tendency Toward Accentu
ating Everything One Associates
The fashions for spring show two fea
tures which may be said to be new. First
is the distinct picturchquenees of the
type of all clothes, and second the- in
creasing tendency in all that one tradi
tionally asociatcs with everything fem
inine; soft materials, laces, sheer chif
fons, draperies, plaitings, ruffles, and
fichus. Even the tailored suit has for
saken the stern masculine type. The
skirts In the plainest tailored suits inva
riably have a hint of an overskirt or
drapery: and the coats are fancy in cut
and style, to suit the graceful skirts,
writes Mrs. Ralston in Ihe Ladies Home
Another feature is the general impres
sion of unfittedness that one feels strong
ly in the new fashions. This is given in
a variety of ways: for instance, by the
cut of a waist line, and by the very
loofce, picturesque manner In which the
new clothes are fitted and worn.
Originality is another noticeable fea
ture toward whicn fashions have been
gradually moving, and now it has become
such an important point that it is recog
nized as the highest type of good style.
It will bo practically impossible in the
present day to exclude, as out of fash
ion, any idea that could be classified bb
original good taste. A little analysis of
the newest ideas in fashions will show
you in a limited way the wide scope of
the new clothes.,
Let us begin with the new .one-piece
gown which has the distinctive feature of
beine absolutely, one piece, and not
merely blouse and skirt Joined upon a
princess foundation. These gowns have
no marked waistline they hang straight,
and arc softly Moused in rather below
the normal waistline, in many cases with
wide, draped sashes. These sashes are
worn iuite low at one side over the hips.
They arc made of velvet and silk, to
wear with. fine wool and serge gowns, or
of chiffon and moussellne. to wear over
gowns of silk and satin. The skirt of the
new one-piece gow,n is rtarrow and
straight, the scantiness of which is often
relieved W a slit at the direct center
front, side or side back, where just the
merest suspicion of drapery is noticed.
Sleeves are less fantastic: in fact, the
very plain sleeves are preferred. Long,
full-length sleoves are more worn In all
kinds of clothes than they have been for
some time. In the dressy bodices of un
l'ned chiffon you will see the full-length
sleeve rather loosely fitted in soft folds
between wrist and elbow. The sleeves
of coats made of silk, satin and satin
cloth are fitted smoothly into the arm
holes and finished with narrow cording.
Many of the long sleeves in coats and
bodices, and even In some of the dressier
coats, are made of material contrasting
with tho material of the gown or suit.
The kimono sleeve and long shoulder are
still much used in all kinds of clothes.
Soft materials are often draped into the
armhole, giving quite a full appearance
to the sleeve. Other sleeves are gath
ered; and still agin you will find them
plain fitted, but in this case the arm
hole is likely to be larger, nd is then
finished with a cording or hemstitching.
Bodices remain very simple, and the
new touches are given largely by con
trasts in coloring and material.

For packing butter for keeping
following plan is a very reliable one: To
every twenty pounds of butter take throe
pounds of salt, one pound of loaf sugar,
one-fourth pound of pulverized saltpeter,
and mix thoroughly. Put a layer of
butter, about eight inches thick, then
sprinkle on a light covering of the mix
ture, then a layer of butter, then the
mixture, alternating in this way until
your cask la full. Pack the butter tightly
In air-tight casks. Butter put up in
this way will last a year, retaining its
sweetness. -:- - t
The one-piece dress has held its own
a long time. The model illustrated has
the fashionable drop shoulder and also
a very handsome collar, extending al
most to the belt in the back. The clos
ing of botli waist and skirt is in front,
