SvniTTBN FOR THE SI'NDAV RETl'Ilua It, P. Wllllsms of Fnvette. candidate on the Democratic ticket for Stat Treasurer ol Missouri, owes his nomination largelj to the fact that he has seven daughters, and the further fact th?t some of those seven Uaughters were active. prristent an J clever In electioneering for him. Two of the young ladies, Misses Janet ami Adele. even wei't to the Nominating Convention at i Kansas Cuj. where they brlghtemd Mr. Williams's headquarters, iilnned bad-res and buttons on the coal of friendly e.cle gates. and with brizht smiles and brighter words won over many a man with a ote to the sido of their father. Later, when the convention was in session, they occu pied seats on the jaker's platform, nnd were interested eibservcr. of tlie work of naming candidates for great olllces in n great State. The "Seven Sisters." as they have now becomo famous in more than the sr.nil corner of Missouri that surrounds their hom at Fajette. did not wait until con version time to begin their i lectioneer'ng. however. Long before that time they had been working. At their home in VYtjette they had attended to all his correspondence anl thy had written scores and scores of clccr letters to voters in all parts of Ihe State. They became as well acquainted with the names of the il!t!cl.ms, treat and small, as their father was, and tluy never let the Interest lac In his campaign Is It any wonder that Mr. Williams ion hands down when the other candidates. ".n addition to hating to contend with him. 1 ad to carry the serious handicap of not harms set-en daughter to help them? Mr Wllltair.s p.iints to history -xitn prlle, and shows that it Is only repeating Itself. 'There were ?ven Wonders of the World.'" he sas. "and th"re were tha 'Seteii Golden Candlesticks,' and there were the 'Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences.' There Is something In the number leien, nnd there Is much more In it then each unit Is one charming daughter." Not all of the joung ladies, of course, have taken an active part in the campaign for their father. Those duties hae been largely done by Mlss Janet. Adile and Berenice. But they feel that they are "hacked up" by the magic number seven, and that their father will be elected Treas urer of Missouri this fall. They are still In the fight, however, and will be as long as their father is. They succeeded so well In making 'Williams men" of he Demo crats that they are now doing "missionary work" among the Ttepublicans, and are still handling all tfcelr futher"s campaign cctw respoadence. . 1 I v KK &iWL$ J Social CbrrespoD'l'ncc cf Tbe SunJay lirpjUlc .Paris. June 13. In the line or troutnus 3arls hasn't seen anything quite so beautiful fpr many jcars as tliat of l'rincess Marie Therese of Bragance. which is now exhib ited for a few days previous to shipment to Kegensburg. Bavaria, (iermanv. wrer. her Ulghnesa's nuptials with Prince I.udwig of Thurn and Taxis will portly be celebrated Marie Therese Is a granddaughter of that Michael of Bragance who pljed at bting Xing of Portugal Tor six yhort y-ir in tlie first quarter of tho century, 1'rlnce I.ud-v-lg's mother was the last sutviving blood relative but one f the llnus of Tas-cher Je la Pagerle, which gave l'rance 1'er lir-t Empress. I met I.udwig at the exhibition to-lsv. His face is finely chleled, bis bearing lofty .ind Einceftil. He recalls beautiful, vvilltul Jot phine In more than one r-siiect. His bride-to-be. now in hr twentieth year Is of sturdier build and of the typ- of beauty that arrives at Its climax onlv after some years of married life. Her own and her fu ture husband's family are connected by ties Of blood nnd by man I a bo with all tho im perial and royal Catholic houses AuttU, Italy. Spain, Portugal. Bivarla. Ilohoii7ul lern. Katilon. the XapoWms. llurats, and the rest. The joung raupl- will make their residence at Castle Neubur; on the Danube, but. as stated, the wedding will take place tit Itcgenrburg, under the ail-pice of the reigning Prince of Thurn and Taxis and his .wife. Archduchess Marguerite of Austria. It is Intended to.make it one of the grand est affairs ever held at the Iminen-e Itegens Imrg palace founded liy St. i:mine-in. v. ho was cruelly murdered" by one of the tlr-l Dukes of Bavaria.. Till- lln-HSe. Marie Theres-e will take to Ler new home sixty-nine gala toilets anJ gowns intend ed for seml'tate. the house, the boudo:r, the chase and for outdoo- s-jirts. A million of franca worth of Uces have tn-en used In -making -up her gowns and lin gerie. .In deference to the wishes of the Papa! Ziuncio. who will be present, tlie wedding dress Is less decolleio than the usual run ol court dresses, but. ns-idc from that, ri vals the most elaborate gowru the Km press of Russia or tTetmtny ever donned. It Is made of white brocade Mile with in tern oi en thread o gold nd Hllver. al ternating, and so heavy that it can stand nlone. The waist is backed by silver backed diamond buttons as itg us the tip of your middle finder. It is cut In the lat est stjle. The mantel serving as a train ir( eleven yards long, and is made of cloth of silver, edged with a wealth of anchnt lace, which is an Improvement on the cus tomary ermine. The decorations are c range blossoms, fashioned out of silk by famous Parisian fkiwermakers. Each blossom cost 10 fnncs, nnd there are thousands of them on the skirt, train, corsage and veil. llccejitinn llreftii. The young bride will receive court society on the third day after the wedding in a cream-colored velvet robe that opens below the waist over a "tablicr" (apron) of rare lace, which Is made only In n few country districts of Portugal. Iaslxm royalty, for time Immemorial, has bou;ht up the whole jiroduct. nnd Marie Therese enjoys an ab FOlute novelty in this possession. The lace Msa pale jellow and vcrj fine of texture. The contrast with the color cf the dress 4s the happiest. On her head the Princess will wear a liny 'white dove with outstretched wings. The wings arp jovvdeied with diamond chips. The bird' ejes are rubles, the beak is of coral. The Prlnce-s intends to present this novel article of decoration to the Itegcns hurg Cathedral, to be hung up In the knave tif the church as a sjmbol of the Holy llhost. Illne nlln Ilnbr. Another state toilet is of llcht blue satin. The hem of the skirt and sweep of the train are tmbroidertd In sliver with :i sprinkling of diamond chips marking the ittrns and windings of wild roe. Ho-e buds made of pale pink "-Ilk are sewed on the skirt and the full length of the train. The train has volants cf precious lace em broidered in gold and silver, and the roso buds peeping through produce a very unique effect. Marie Therese seems to he fond of blue. Thtre Is another dress marie mpire vtjie. the white slijj skirt and waist of which is mi with tiny golden bees, thousands of thm, as was Josephine's coronation robe: This dres Is worn with an underskirt of torn-blue velvet of tlie iichet iiosble quality. The same material has been used for the lun,j train. A cream-coloied silk scarf. Its sliver laced edges lneru-ted with turquoise, serves for the corsage. This Is an heirloom of the first French Kmpre.-s. who emliroldtred It during her happy davs et MtiImaion. The tur-quoi-e are of the Siberian variety, a present of the Fmperor Alexander. It semt hardly possible that Marin An toinette !u her rural retreat ever conitived a lovelier costume than Marie Therese's toilet a la Trianon. The ground material Is of Indian muslin, embroidered throughout. The most elaborate and softed Alencon laces aie lavished on the fichu and the volants of tlie skirt. It Is hard lo describe, this drevs; lis alrj effect.s imit be seen lo be appre ciated. Among the ball dresses one of silk muslin took my particular fancv It Is changeable in color and edged wltii ehln-liilla. Fur on a ball robe is somt tiling quite novel. 1 think. The decorations are turquoise, surioundcd by diamonds. 'Outdoor IJrrfmrn." Tlie Prim-ess will wear loose blouses from now on until the middle of S'tem!ier, then Hi tallor-nnde drew will come into ums for walking and outdoors generally. Tlie boudoir dres-es In pale ellow. pink and pale blue, have either decorations of metal embroidery, lace, feathers, tulle, flow ers tir send-preelous stones. They are all made with long trains and loose sleeves and op-n in front down to the bottom. The sport costumes are rtmarkahle only for the bea'jtv of material, otherwise they are quite plain except for volant uf the color and material of the costume. Josvelr. What's, lacking In the outdoor an! sport costumes, from the millinery standpoint. Jewelers have provided. The studios of master gold and silver smiths he'ped out where the tailor failed In hi efforts. Of buckles, pins, capechalns. rings and other accessories, there are legions, to Judge by Marie Therese's trousseau. Doulties many of them are works of high art. but thero Is an agreeable sprinkling of petty bibelots besides, which are not too expensive to be discarded after a few days' wear. A green velvet hunting dress is fitted with a short nnd a long skirt, one for horseback and the other for stalking. Truly Parisian, tint Is. very wide, knickerbockers, are In tended for underneath. Of the scarlet waist coat but .little is seen, nnd on the whole the costume is almost too plain. Behold tho festive Jeweler step In! First he provides a silver girdle made out of an cient Hubertus thalers. alternately gilt and white, and hangs on it a menagerie all sorts of animals, swinging on rings and chains. The' make a funny noise when madame moves. This hare, cut from an opal, with laugh ing diamond eyes and a silver tall. Is luck brlnging hcsldes hunter's luck, by the way. Luck In general Is provided by Mr. Kip ling's Tw(, Tails. The elephant has alien ated, woman's affections for the golden lis and as an article of decoration certainly oilers superior opportunities. You can pro vide him with enameled strea.ners. you can gilt the tip of his trunk, and stick in real ivories at the sides of his head Why has lie deposed the porker? Sillv qu.l3ii! Mine, de Theirs, the first cl ilrvnvante of Parisian siebtv, s.is lie is far rnjre .el'i ble constituting an amulet of the highest order. Marie Therese probably nver heard of the Thebes woman who charges us from twenty to 2ft francs for every onsulta- llon. but can't escape her ruling just the same Then there are "grls-gris." They har.c on stout ehtins and are supposed t l-e ancient amulets, dug t.p from the Lord knows v hose graves. Xo man-eating -gv- ITALY A 163 PCR r-TAJi PEf? ANNUM. EMOLAND; 430Fr?

Tlie cost of being prepared to unhold the dignity of a nation is something that be fore this has made the financial heads of those nations spend sleepless nights. The world knows, pretty welkwhat each Power pay- for Its standing army as a whole, but it Is not often that a statistician goes to the trouble of finding out the market value of each soldier to the Government undr whese flag he is enlisted. According (o a recent table, the Vnlted Statjs Army costs more per man than nny other army In the world. It rests r.pr man Is mere than that of ltussla. France. Ger-M many. Austria.

A falconer outfit is very rl?h and origiial. The hore trappings are of morocco leather, gold-plated. The skirt of the chamois bather haldt Is edged with green and very long, in the stvli- of the Middle Ages. The corsage Is high, and the stomaehir studded with all sorts of flying Dims, made ot pearls and precious stones and metals. There Is. In particular, a flock of swal lows, the bodies (pnned by bli-k pearls, the heads and wings constructed of dia mond chips. llatlons. There are special sets of loose buttons' for each costume, as was the fashion in 'he Fourteenth Louis's time. The buttorj come in pretty boxes in tho color of tho dress, and the boxes are lined with flowered pompadour si!k. There are four big ones for tho lwlero Jacket, made of crvstrl. enamel or decorated china. If not of precious stones, the center being framed In gold, sliver, diamonds or rubies. Sometimes truy are oval, but as often romd or many cornired. Two identical but tons are stuck through the center of tho slipper bow. Such "parures de bouton?" tbutton outfits) are popular as presents for ladies just now. but I h-.ve revir seen them In such quan tities, not even In Jewelry stores.

Inhibition of Gnrtrr. Marie Tfttrco will own twenly-four doz en of silk neckings when she chang-s her rov.il crown for a princely diadem -all plain. mono:oruii'ly plain. There are no pretty fancies, no cheeks, no Interlacing, no clocks or stripe?. Tj.e prevailing colors are white, pale blue, gray and pink, but the plTititud.i and ailety of g-arters pnvirieri for her lloyal Highness makes up for tln.-t; appar ent short? mings. With a l'rincess. jou must know, tho gartfr is still a fit subject fur dlcusion. On her wedding ve pbcts of her garter, or pieces of silk elastic, resembling her garter and embroidered with her naire In gold, are distributed among the gust.s. Marie Therese'.s friends will receive a e ream-colored ban 1 liberally Iiiterjer.sed with gold and silver threads, and with her Initials under a rrown. Garters corresponding In color to that of the co'tumes have. ef course, been pro vided for every ooe of the sixty-nine gowns, but there are many others !esides. The women whom I met at the exhibition in large droves seemed to be most Interested In the kind thit Is supposed to have helped. Marie Therese to And herLudnlg. It differs from the rest by having a tiny golden bell attached to the buckle. This might be a valuable hint for the next leap year If It wasn't for the fact that the bell came off a toy. which the Holy FathT. the Pope, sent to her highness when she was still In her swaddling clothes. For boudoir wrar Marie Therese will have garters of Bordeaux red elastic, with out buckles, a rosette of pINsed crearn duches.s lace serving Instead. In the center of the rosette Is a little bunch of Hlies-of-the-valley. In a garter to be worn on state occasions, the elastic Is hidden under pleated j-llow-molre silk. There Is a buckle of pearU set In silver on a black velvet bow. Heliotrope crepe de Chine cloth, edged with rare lace, makes another elaborate garter. It Is tied In a bow and sliver buckles In rococo style hold It together.. There are gnrteri for court mourning and for half mourning, the first draped with crepe, the other festooned In white, with rosettes. Exquisite are a pair of white silk garters set round with blus satin bows, on the ends of which dangle pearls like dew drops, .v pair of pink gar ters is covered with black lac and gar nished with Jet figures. -At the sldo are tiny diamond buckles. Chemise iinel MjchtKOvma The lingerie department of the trousseau occupies a dozen tables, but the mountains of beautiful things displayed thereon are but samples. The treasure Itself Is packed away In a hundred boxes or so twenty four dozens of e?ch pattern and material. Silk was emplojed only for riding habit undergarments and for winter wear with outdoor and sport e'ostumes. In all cases It Is the heaviest, black for riding, gray op tan for sport. Otherwise the Princess will 1m? arrayed in underwear of French cam bric and" batiste of the kinds that never low color and are rieliciously soft and pleaslnsT to the skin. The batiste chemise for summer wear 19 so frail ou could slip the whole garment through "a ring or mull It In an ordlnary nv elope for a t-otiss stamp. It Is fash ioned for utility only, and little at lhat. I should ay. and Is without trimmings or fancy stltehes. But the chemise to be worn on other than tlie dog davs is an elaborate affair In deed. It's decollete and thero are numerous graduations of decollete. For dinner it's less decollect thin for a state banquet, and a the dtnsante at home demands more cov ering for th- bust than a ball at court The neck band, be It high or low. Is fin ished in three rows of frills, each with a ribbon drawn through It which, of courre, eorresponls with the color of the drew. These frill drape the shoulders, obviating the necessity of sleeves. It point o'r color the chemise Is made cf Hie fairest pink, the palest lavender, im perial yellow, snowy white and burning red. the latter to be worn with a red or a black costume. The decorations do not stop at the neek. There Is a lace insertion around the waist, through the meshes of which a ribbjn may be slipped. Tills Is tied In a coquettish Low on or.e or both sides. Sometimes the rlLlion ami Isjvv are of blacl: velvet, which makes a rich effect. . Try it, ladles. Since a Princess wears It. jou needn't l afraid that It's too "French."

There are state costumes for night wear and others, the first leing almost too love ly to be cruirplisl up In bed. Imagine a palo green grenadine affair edged with black lace and embroidered with butterflies and roso buds alternating, all so lightly that jou can scarcely feel the silk, though It glitters in all the colors of the rainbow. This night gown, cut In princess style, has a Ions train trimmed with black ana white lace alternating, tuckeel flounces and more butterflies, appllqued In the material. In the general run of night dresses tha neck Is cut en coeur stvle, while deep laco ruffles spread their wings over the pal pitating flesh. I'nr McU tVenr. A Princess, like every other woman, must be prepareil to receive the iloctor. On such occasions Marie Therese will wear a white nightgown with a joke and frills oC black lace.
