Hagerstown Man Beaten and Robbed HAG ERSTO WN Md.. July 2?.-J. C. Anderson, an eccentr'o aged shoemaker, reports to the tl^at he was robbed ot fli<?. Some t rnc between 2 and 4 o'clock yesterday morning ht was struck on t*:e liead while asleep in a small r?om in the rear of his shop, on North Jona than street. Anderson thinks h> was chloroformed after he was struck, and while he was unco -sclous he was robbed. He rega ned *iis seizes about 4 o'clock and found his head in a?j>ooI of b ood with a two-inch gash on the side of his betd. A <hlsel, which 11> - robbe:- had probably used on his head, was lying near. m Demented Man Tried to Kill Niece. HAGERSTOWN. Md..

Washington county, ^\*s seized while -ualkln^ on the second story porch at her home by her demented greatuncle, George Bingham, aged seventy years, and hurled to the ground, a dis tance o.* twenty feet. The girl's collar bone and several ribs were broken and It is believed she also sustained internal ln? juries. Her condition Is regarded pre carious. Bingham's mind has b?en un balanced for some time, although he nev<r. prior to yesterday, displayed a vicious temper. Ha made his home with the girl's parents. He will probably be placed In an Insane asylum. IHr*ctl<Mis for Making led Ten.?Warm ibe teapni. rut In a heaping teaapoonfnl of "Sa luda" Tea tor erery two cup?.

Wide bands of the lace border the center panel of the princess front, running from above the curve of the bust to the heading of the pleated flounce. This lace on one edge is finished by narrow bail trim ming, which continues over the shoulder, and also outlines the little square neck. Crochet buttons and frogs trim the center panel, and a row of the buttons the plain, close-fitting sleeve. The hat worn with this pretty frock was blue crin, with trimming of black net and novelty feather in black. FROCKS FOR ELDERLY WOMEN'S EVENING WEAR Separate Waists and Skirts Are Effective Combina tions for the Stout Middle-Aged Matron. While the one piece dress is the most, popular model, gome middle-aged women cling to the separate skirt and waist style, declaring it to be more convenient and economical for persons of their age. This, it must be admitted, is often true, especially when preparing an informal evening toilet. For. with a skirt of sub stantial material in a good quality and a smart waist the combination has more dignity than the gown of one material, which of necessity must be light in tex I ture, if the bodice is to be cool and com fortable. Girls and young matrons may Indulge in simple frocks of Inexpensive material for evening and look charming, but an elderly woman so dressed will probably give the impression of trying to ape Juvenile fashions. While a abort or a stout person will find that a skirt and waist that match in color are more becoming than the two garments in separate shades, a tall or a slight woman may wear waist and skirt in dif ferent colors successfully. The one color scheme, however, will be more up to date. The. best torses for the separate skirt when It must be worn with a waist of a contrasting color are black, white and gray. Suitable materials are chiffon broad cloth. bengaline, tha crepy goods, poplin, fine serge and cashmere. | Fabrics suitable for evening: waists are 1 net, lace, lingerie, dotted swiss, marqul ; sette, China si!k and ?repe, thi selection | depending entirely upon the needs of the | waist. ? For home use dotted swiss made simply with a 'ittl* tucking to form a yoke makes an idea: waisL for warm evenings. The ne-k should be cut square ar.d finished with ? atrip <">f insertion lace edgod with a llttlu lacc fi!I1. The three-quarter sleeves should be similarly trimmed. This model will suit the plump type of woman. Those SIMPLE REMEDIES FOR BAD BRUISES Knowledge of how to treat severe bruises every one should possess, and quaint and old-fashioned as some of the remedies are, they are valuable. For in stance, the app'lcation of raw beef after a severe blow is treatment that a novice can give. I do not pretend to know why It Is effectH'e. but the fact remains that it will scatter th? blackness resulting from (ioagulatlon quicker than almost any otner remedy, and if one does not like the idea of such a "plaster" there Is to be said In reply that it is more desirable than purple spots. As to the success of a beef plaster, a girl of sixteen years who thought she would play base bail with the boys a few weeks ago can testify; for she received a stunning b ow In the nose from the ball as It left fhe bat, and what happened in the next fifteen minutes she knews but vaguely. 31.e is, however, aware that b^ night her face was the color of Indigo, and then it was an old housewife who suggjsted applying raw beef. A thin si ce was cut by the butcher, places punched in It for the nose and mouth, and the mask tied on for tne n ght. The next morning the skin was white in places, and In four days of this she had returned to normal hue. Under ordinary conditions It woula have been a week, at least, be fore the blackness would have been dis sipated. Butter for bruises 's strongly advocat ed. An elderly woman, overcome by heat a few days ago, fell, striking her fore head on ihe pavement. When she was helped up and went Into a shop blackness appeared on her head, and her s'tter. who was with her. sent for butter to ap ply. By the time the unguent arrived there wu -a swelling the slxe of a pig eon's egg over one eye. This was thor oughly rubbed with butter, the whole s de of the face being treated in the same way. By even'ng the swelling had afmost entirely disappeared. This may seem odd, but It Is true. The buttor has nothing added to It, but la uted as a salve. Hot water compresses arc no longer ap of more slander build will probably find the small transparent yoke more becom ing. Tbin arms, too. might be covered with soft lace that falls over the hands. The swiss may be ?white or black, as the wearer pleases. It is a fabric that launders easily. Lingerie waists are correct for home evening wear, but the skirt should not be of the average wash goods. A pretty skirt of handkerchief linen daintily em broidered wi!l be cool, but nothing stiff or sleeves following the waist effect. For informal evening wear on warm nights nothing is cooler than the net waist. But being on th?^ blouse order, an elaborate model must be avoided. Bla^k or white net made with tucks and a little Insertion lace running from shoulder to belt, is a generally booming style, the slaaves following the waist effect. There should be a transparency about the face, the neck high or cut slightly low as considered becoming to the wearer. This kind of blouse will look smarter i' confined to black only. A relief of white is unnecessary and will not be an im provement. A Jet collar and be't will add importance to the toilet and may be used with good effect in the case of a black waist. A simple waist of white crepe is another choice for evening. This material looks its best made plain, the front embroidered and the neck flpished wtih a collar and small yoke of fagoting. This combina tion washes quickly and needs no ironing, Just a thorough shaking when dry. i The thin silks, such as messallne and ! the washable kinds, make into pretty cool ; waisth simply trimmed with tucking or a j Httle line va) lace. The fabrics made ; into groups of line tucks before cutting ; are always effective, adding a small yoke of lace or embroidered net. j The yoke may be white embroidered to J match the waist in color. j Crepe waists are striking when worked ! with a dainty color. Mercerized thread, j however, and uot silk, should be used for J this purpose. ELIZABETH LEE. ? ? 1 plied to bumps, if water is to be used That which Is ice cold is now recom mended by physicians, he theory be'ng to prevent the blond from settling in the bruise, a condition that heat encourages. Water to be used In this way should be iced; It being we'l to have a ba?ln be side the couch or chair where the patient rests. The cloths uteti must be wet and renewed frequently as their temperature goes up. This Ik the best way to treat Inflammation in an- locat'on when cold applications are needed. When used for some hours it will ef fectually prevent blackness, but it is prac tically no good if put on only for an hour or more. If an accident happens late in the afternoon the compresses should be renewed through the nignt?for instance, every fifteen minutes. MARGARET MIXTER. Hints for Women. Surely never was there such a va riety of long loose coat models for sea side, country and mountain wear as is seen this season. The prices, too, are so modest, and if one is wise in making the choice these wraps may be worn in the fall to and from business (before the autumn suit Is needed) or for general outing and shopping. The navy blues, tans and browns are most attractive, while every one knows what a good investment is the purchase of a mixed tweel wrap. The prices are all the way from $4 upward. Draped overskirte and festooned sashes seem to be returning to favor again. For evening wear draped skirts are almcst exclusively shown. Of course, for day and general use the fashion Is not as adaptable, but scarfs and ribbon sashes are added to give the new effects even on lingerie frocks. Sometimes a sash is brought around the waist to the front and then taken back, suggestive of pan niers and knotted at the left side or in the back. Only a tall slender girl could stand such a decoration, and an artistic arrangement is necesaarv to success wen when the figure is slender.

John Coleman, a seventy-vear-old mari ner. and his crew of four men were taken from the schooner Madagascar yes terday by a wrecking: boat that camf from New York, after they had remained lashed to the rigging and in imminent peril for two nights. The Madagascar hails from Calais. Me., and is owned by H. F. Katon & Son. She was on her way back to Calais with a cargo of coal when Joseph Slack of Brooklyn, who was steering, at a | point off Cow's reef held her a trifle too long on the starboard tack. Her bow went down on the reef, water! poured through a hole, and the loss of j the boat appeared certain. The crew had | boats, but they decided to stay on the] ship until a wrecker arrived. After sending word to their owners the | men tied themselves in the rigging and | settled back for two nights of waiting. j Sunday night there came squalls and a 1 storm that threatened to break up the vessel, but the men still stuck to the ship. FATIMA WAS A JOY RIDER. Hen Escaped Death, Flew Upon Auto's Hood and Laid an Egg. NEW YORK. July 20.?Martin Hess, a hrteikeeper of Cranford, has a hen which he has trained to come into his kitchen to lay eggs. When a sherry flip is wanted Fatima, as Hess calls her, if properly dis posed. lays the egg on the bar. . .obert L. Baton, clerk of the Union county grand jury, was going through Cranford in an automobile at a forty mile clip. Fatima got in the way and had to fly to the hood of the machine to nave her life. Probably to show her joy over her nar row escape. Katon says, the hen laid an egg right th?>n and there. Katon rode into Elizabeth with tiie story and the egg as proof of its truth.
