-LACE FIT FOR A QUEEN.-
Tou will be told that a lace veil shown
In the Belgian building required more than
two years In the making, four expert lace
maker3 being constantly employed at the
task. It is a bridal -vestment, very nearly
as elaborate aa the gift of the women .of
Belgium to the Princess Stephanie on the
occasion of her marriage, the $3,000, price
of which was raised by popular subscrip
tion, 5 francs being the maximum amount
from any donor.
When time was little and money less In
the affairs of men and women lace-making
had its birth and Jts development. But
the machine canflTnlong with Its economics
and the popular opinion then asked. "What
tise of perfect handwork when the ma
chine, much more cheaply, turns out a
quality only a little less perfect?"
So even tho lovers of genuine needlc
.polnt lace are admitting that the art
slowly is declining.
In England, the machine holds sway: In
Prance, machine-made .nets, upon which
the designs are woven by hand, predomi
nate; in other countries, economies at the
expense of quality have been largely in
troduced. Very few lace-making centers
follow the old. slow and painstaking
method which takes a year fa the -piece
that could be superrlclally duplicated by
machine in half a day,
Belgium is one of the exceptions to the
rule. Belgium still Is a lace-making and
& laco-Iovlng country, as it -was" two and
mora centuries ago. The traditions of
the craft are alive; daughter Is taught
. the art by mother and the secrets of the
. marvelous handiwork are handed down in
families. It were invidious to say that
the lace of Brussels is the most exquisite
of modern laces, but undoubtedly connois
seurs consider It of the first-class.
These facta in mind, the collective ex
hibit of laces In the Belgian building ac
quires a superlative Interest. Apart from
the beauty of texture and fabric, it Is the
epitome of an ectivitj important phases
of which had their origin ,tn the Nether
lands, -where nuns, as ,a pastime from the
monotony of convent life, first made the
pillow or "bobbin" lace, a kind that often
la quite aa fine as needle-point.
Now both methods are followed in Bel- I
glum, or are often'used together, so that
the beauties' of tbebne adaT"-variety to
the attractions of the other. 'Illustration

The netting or background is of such
extreme delicacy that the interstices al
most defy the eye. yet all was done with
the needle-point with needle and thread,
much as one sews. Over It are worked
numerous tiny cuplds and the effect of
clouds. The richness of the result could
not be surpassed.
"It Is not quick-lunch work." said Mr.
Vauthler. the Belgian Art Commissioner,
when I -was marveling over- the. time and
patience given to the making of so small
a thing as this lady's collaret. "Neither

"Tou know, all thai we Europeans can
hope to Introduce successfully In America
is the art work. Either you don't have
the time to do It or you cannot do it. But
the fact Is that you never finish anything,
so that when you see European workman

because It Is more thorough than any you
have seen before.'

as with the lace. See how complete they
are; how carefully the artist must have
worked to shape the result out of one

with-us; the King gives the ivory to the
artist to encourage him In this kind of
carving. But we go on the principle yiat

tains a communication form a Russian
correspondent, who says: .
"From conversations I have bad with .
several officials of high rank. I gather
that Russia will stand or fall by Port' Ar
thur, that is, so far as the prestige ot tha
Government with the lower classes Is con"
"In the event of the capture of the fort
ress Internal troubles in Russia arc pos
sible and local complications and disturb-'
ances are Inevitable.
"Count lmsdorff, the Foreign Minister,
has hitherto been protected by the Cauy
who is now displaying Jn an unwonted
manner a strong personality, but it is
expected that the Minister will be racrl
flced as a rrapegoat to ths popular lndig-,
nation, at the way in which the war has
been conducted. His position is at least'
"It is freely suggested that Qeneral Ku
ropatkln has lost favor at court, but it
Is certain no change in the cjraman& of
the Russian Army- In the far East Is con

A WIRELESS STATION i!
USED BY RUSSIANS,- i
Toklo, June S. 4:30 p. m.--It Is. suspectd
here that the Russians at port Arthur are
communicating with points on the Chinese
coast by means of wireless telegraphy:
It was reported that a wireless station
had been erected secretly at the village ot
Peh-Wang, on Takln Island, one of the
Mlao-Tao group, situated in Pe-Chl-Ll
Strait, and the Japanese cruiser Chlto'o
visited the Island yesterday to Investigate.
She did not. however, find anvtMng. It is
reported that another such station has
been erected near Ehan-Hai-Kwan, and
the Japanese are investigating this mat
ter. Yesterday the Chltose steamed close to
Into Llaote Shan promontory and discov
ered four masts and a watchhoure near
the coast- One of these, masts evidently
was fitted for wireless telegraphy operations-
The Chltose reports having, heard
a series of explosions at Port Arthur and.
believes them to have resulted-from blast
ings preparatory to the emplacement of
RUSSIANS REPULSED ,
BY INFERIOR NUMBERS
WITH HEAVY LOSS."
