Following the accepted rule of modish designers, the gown, being of a figured fabric, is cut on straight and simple lines, the severe J princess effect being broken by the slight draping at the waist. A pretty touch is given by the glimpses of plain blue taffeta which appear at the neck, cuffs and between the slashes on skirt and waist. Blue silk cords cross these slashes, joining buttons covered with the plain taffeta. Hat of rough blue straw simply trimmed with black velvet and huge wings, shaded in dark blue and brown. ? YOUNG GIRLS SHOULD DRESS THE HAIR IN SIMPLE WAYS t Tresses Must Be Soft and Fluffy and Twisted Into Loose, Graceful Knots?Pompa dours Are Too Elaborate. Simplicity should be the keynote of a young girl's coiffure, but it Is an effect not easy to attain in these days of elab orate hair dressing. Yet good taste cannot approve of a young girl wearing large pompadours, and one should leave such extremes for those who are older. But that she may show the InJluence of prevailing fash ions, a small roll is conceded to her and with this she will be quite satisfied if only she will realize how much prettier are softness and naturalness than hard puffs, rolls, etc., of artificial make. If a girl's forehead is low she may part her locks, an arrangement that is always extremely pretty, and has dis tinction when it is becoming There are rumors, too, from Paris, that before long rolls.are to be abolished for smooth hair and flat effects, a part being made in the middle. To use a roll a girl must divide the half on top and then make another part across the head to secure a portion under which to place a small roll at either side. Over this she may lay the tresses, fasten ing them bark with a small comb on eiiher side. A little pulling and patting will make this conform to the most be coming line for the face. The long section Is then gathered a lit ABOUT THE HOUSE. SOMETHING entirely new in house j furnishings is a telephone shelf made ! of glass. It measures six inches square i and is secured to "the wall by means of three nickel brackets that come with the; shelf. The price is $1.50 complete. It is J clean and sanitary. Another dainty article is glass and nickel in a matchbox intended for bath room use. It has a nickel match re ceptacle and a removable glass tray which receives the burnt matches. This, too, is new and costs $2. A luxurious addition to the bathroom that is new this season is a white enam eled stool, fitted with four strong legs and finished with a top of cork fully half an inch thick. This is much more comfortable, being non-slippery, when one wishes to sit while i drying the feet, and, of course, it ab sorbs the water, drying quickly after ward. It is extremely strong and well finished i and may be bought for The Smart Shoes. From Harper's B?zar. The high Cuban heel is a feature of all street shoes and ties, except the new directoire shoes. These, as a rule, have the Louis XV heel, with the classic san dal back rising almost to an ordinary shoe height. They strap the limb just above the ankle, where a bow finishes the strap. These come principally in champagne suede or in the bronze and gray glace finishes. As they have fairly substantial soles and heels, they will meet with general favor for even practi cal afternoon dresses. Four and si* strapped slippers in bronze are also among the sumer carriage shoes. For dinner and party toilets the low slipper is made up of material matching the dress, often beautifully elaborated with Jet or pearl beads or metal embroideries. There is also a new dancing slipper or pump, which is made with a very low vamp and a high Cuban heel. This Is finished with a full bow of crinkled silk over the toe portion. Women who are smartly conservative will continue to wear that practical shoe having a patent leather vamp and a dull kid top, but the patent leather portions are usually laid over the kid In scal lops or .with perforated band effects. tie above the nape of the neck, twisted and securely pinned. The rope thus formed is twisted into a loose figure eight, and according as it is pinned in original length or "telescoped" will be fiat or stick out. If a girl decides to pull out the hair to get the prevailing knot effect, she must be careful not to make it too prominent, or the result may be grotesque. When the coiffure is complete it should be low on the back of the head, an angle at which her hat will rest securely, and that should be becoming./ The young woman with the high fore head may not part her hair in tlve "middle Instead she should have a few short soft locks which are curled and lay against the high forehead to make it lower In effect. I do not care for a roll under her pompadour, for If she brushes her hair back loosely and softly and ties It with a wide ribbon near the back of the top of the head, she will have a most becoming foundation for her coiffure. I^et her then twist her hair into a loose but not sloppy looking knot and pin It just below the bow, always taking care to keep the hair loose against the head. This is more effectually done by brushing up than by combing. During the day and for the street a wide black ribbon is smart, but for the evening the bows may match the light house dress worn.

For vou rarelv set iust milk eno You are paying more for impure milk than you would pay for pure. That half-milk you use in your cooking costs more than rich Holstein milk. Von can have a cow in your kitchen for less than 3*ou pay toward the keep of your milk man's cow. If Van Camp's cost twice as much as raw milk it would still be essential. There is nothing more vital than getting pure milk. But when Van Camp's costs half as much, for what possible reason can one cling to raw milk? Let us discuss the facts. Surprisingly Rich You'll be surprised at the richness and flavor which Van Camp's gives to a milk dish. You'll wonder what we have added to make it so good. But we add nothing at all. The difference is this: You were cooking before with half-milk. For milkman's milk separates, before and after you get it. The butter fat rises and the solids fall. So you never get the whole, rich milk. In Vgn Camp's you do. You'll never again be content with half-milk when you once cook with Van Camp's. Not Altered Van Camp's is simply rich Holstein milk, with two-thirds the water evaporated. Noth ing whatever is added. Nothing is subtracted, save water. It's not a peculiar milk. Tt is taken fresh from the cow and evapo rated, close to our numerous dairies. It is sterilized after the can is sealed. So it comes to you as fresh as it leaves us. The slight almond flavor?apparent only when one drinks the milk cold?is due to sterilization. For cooking or coffee. Van Camp's tastes exactly the same as raw milk or cream, save for additional richness. It's Economical Van Camp's is as thick as thick cream?so thick that you add one part water for coffee. Yet it doesn't cost half what you pay your milkman for cream. Add two parts water and you have rich milk. The cost of such milk, when you buy Van Camp's by the case, is about six cents per quart. Then you have no waste?no milk left over. For Van Camp's means a cow in your kitchen. One often spends for Vaa Camp's Milk about half what she paid the milkman. Think of buying milk from hand to mouth ?buying a half-milk laden with .germs?and paying more than one pays for Van Camp's. Free From Germ* Van Camp's is perfectly sterile. We milk no tubercular cows. We employ no sickly milkmen. Our dairies are sanitary. Our creameries, where the milk is evaporated, are built with out wood. We make a business of cleanli ness. We employ every means known to science to guard our milk from infection. Then the milk is pasteurized. Every drop of raw milk contains a myriad of germs. And those germs are humanity's most terrible foes. Van Camp's contains none at all. It it safe. A Warning Van Camp's is not like a condensed milk, which is half sugar. Ours is nothing but milk. Analysis of Van Camp's shows about 8 per cent .of butter fat. That is because we us? very rich milk and evaporate two-thirds of the water. Rut one may take out much less of tha water and still have '"evaporated" milk. So there is need to be careful. Don't think that all milks are alike. Van Camp's costs no mote than many brands which cannot begin to compare with it. You will get the utmost in milk if you in sist on Van Camp's. Van Camp's Milk comes in 5 and 10-cent cans, at your grocer's. It is put up at our dairies, in five stales, where we milk 20,000 Holstein cows. Vaa Camp Packiag Co. IadianapolU, Ind.

SIR HARRY MACLEAN'S RANSOM British Government Settles With Morocco?-Raisuli's Part in Deal. Special Cablegram to The' Star. FEZ, May 24.?The British government has settled with Morocco for the ransom paid by i^ for the release of Sir Harry Maclean, who was captured by the bandit Raisuli. Raisuli is to restore $55,000 out of the $100,000 paid by the British gov ernment for Kaid Maclean's ransom. The sultan is to take $2i).000 worth of Rai suli's house property at Tangier and his majesty will pay this sum, in addition to the remaining $25,000, thus completing the $100,000. The position of the Moorish treasury rendered the immediate payment of $45, 000 by the sultan almost impossible, but, as the installments will be paid by -lie state bank within the next three months!, the conclusion is considered ver. satis factory.

PARIS, May 24.?From Marseille comes an account of a tragedy which occurred on board a French liner which left that port three weeks ago bound for Australia and New Caledonia. Among the first-class passengers was a wine merchant of Bordeaux, who was accom panied by his wife and their infant child. One evening, while they were In the Red sea, he went to his cabin and found it empty. Recognizing: his wife's voice in the adjoining cabin, he entered it and found her holding the baby* in her arms and a man hiding behind the door. He told the man what he thought of his conduct, and as his wife was hurrying up to the deck he bade her to go to their cabin. She obeyed, after confiding the child to a lady, and presently four revol ver shots were heard, and when some of the officers of the ship rushed into the cabin they found the woman lying badly wounded on the floor. She expired the next day and her hus band was handed over to the British authorities when the steamer arrived at Aden, and will soon be on his way back to France. APPEAL TO THE VATICAN. Ruthenian Catholics Here Protest Against Marriage Ban. Special Cablegram to The Star. ROMF', May 24.?The Ruthenian Catho lic community in the United States, num bering some 300,000 members, chiefly im migrants from Austria-Hungary, have sent a deputation to the Vatican to pro* test against the withdrawal of the privi lege to marry heretofore enjoyed by their clergy. In 1892, when Mgr. Ortensky was sent by Rome to North America as first resi dent bishop, the Catholic priests whom he had to rule were mostly married men with families. Some years later the holy see made an effort to enforce celibacy. The position taken by the holy see is that while it does not intend to revoke the marriage concession in the case of priests of the eastern uniate churches ministering among their native environ ment, it cannot recognize tills right of taking a wife in the case of Ruthenian missionaries who go beyond seas to evan gelize their co-religionists in lands where the Latin rite holds sway. Pius X is the more sternly resolved to admit of no compromise, because at the present time the anti-celibacy movement is rapidly growing among the Roman Catholic presthood in European countries.
