When tho really hot weather comes this
summer it will bo found that the high-
'ass river suit will no longer be made of
Sannel, or rather of flannel-finished an
gola, but of sergo or cashmere, and that
both troupers and Jacket will be pure
The whlto suits will bo made with the
corners a good deal rounded, as. Indeed,
tho comers of all Jackets' aro gradually
tending- to bo made, and the Haps of the
pockets will also bo much rounded.
Somo of these flips are made actually
semicircular .1 weird effect; but there is
no need to go all that length. There will
bo no external h indkerchief pocket an
omission which I think regrettable, though
It makes ir smartness, mu a writer in

take; men want a place to carry matches,
and thcro Is no real objection In these
dajs of exquisitely thin match-twees
against a tlcket-pockct made Inside on
the left nt about tho height of tho hip.
Mother o' pearl buttons, not too large, are
used, and th lapels nro rolled low.
Tha trouMirs aro slightly looser than
those worn with other suits, and fairly
long, as they wiU bo worn turned up.
Brown boots, bo much In cvldenco last
year, will not be worn with this suit, but
whlto buckskin or white canvas ones. Of
course, this suit will "go" admirably with
rather showy shirtings which, as I
coma time, ago predicted here.
much the fashion this summer.
Tho proper collar la a fold, with upright
fronts If preferred, and certainly with
rounded corners, and tho proper cravat a
knot In black or very dark blue, without
any pattern. This, 1 fancy, exhausts the
subject of river dress.
, Although highly colored shirts aro to be
worn on tha river, I do not sea any reason
for thinking that other than whlto shirts
' will bo worn la ordinary dress this jear.

I with a morning coat. But I notice that
f soma men aro wearing whits shirts with a
pleated front with tho morning coat, and
a very cool and comfortable device this
will be when the warm weather tets In.
With a frock suit, however, a stiff white
shire must be worn.
All shirts are still made with the "sma.ll-
rounu culls, and there is not the least
sign of this pattern being abandoned, as,
, Indeed, there is no reason why it should

On the other hand, tha old stylo of
full-rounded cuffs looks slovenly, while
tho small-round Htyle has both conven
ience and appearance to recommend it to
tho publla taste ,and comfort
Being on the subject It may as well be
mentioned that tha best hat to bo worn on
tha River Thames this summer will bo a
straw, with a somewhat higher crown
than usual, and a black riband.
As I had occasion to remark as early
as last summer, the Panama has outlived
Its greatest vogue.
To say this Is not to Imply that many
people, and even many smart people, will
not bo w earimr Panamas. They often will.
But tho Panama has been so greatly vul
garized by cheap copies that even though
the expenslveness of a real Panama may

folk suit continues to be the most ap
proved outfit, and it Is Worn with a low
fold collar and a colored knot, Harris
tweed Is the most satisfactory material,
and browns and heather mixtures are the
colors, though. Indeed, there is ample lat
1 ltude.
There Is not much that is new In the de
partment called "cravatiana." The puff
and the Ascot aro the alternatives for
frock coat wear; puffs and sometimes
knots are worn with the black morning
coat;vknots with the fancy morning coat
and tlio Jacket; bows nowhere except, of
course, with evening dress.
A very agreeable range of cravat silks,
especially for loose-ended knots and pulls,
lias bven Introduced and is finding f.ior
with a very exclusive set at the West End
of London
It is of rich, dull-surfaced, hand-loomed
silk, of a smoke-gray ground color, rather
farmer In tint than a gray sucdo glove;
and It has a moderate-sized design-spot
Wttern. Tho effect, especially with a
black or gray morning coat, is extremely
pleasing, and I should not be surprised to
see quite a rairo spring up for this thing
as the season goes along.
In collars the most important thing to
be recorded is the distinct differentiation
which has established itself in regard to
the wing shapo.
The wing collar la the formal collar of
this year's London spring season, and
the wings themselves nro larger than they
were last year by nearly 73 per cent,
though they aro not folded any further
In other words. If the collar were laid
out flat, tho wings would bo seen to
project oeyona xne ena lines of the tabs.
Thus tho opeidng at the middle of the
neck, between tho wings, is small, but
the wings themselves are fairly large.
But the point of differentiation is In the
shape of the corners, and I wish to make
it verv clear.
These corners can be either sharp or
rounded. The round-cornered wing collar
is full dress: tha sharp-cornered wing col
lar is only semldress. Therefore, a round
pointed collar should be worn with (l)
evening dress, except where a dinner

"Why did you fill It up?" said I. "What's

he. "Besides, I can easily have it dug out

There was a Wall street broker in the

while le was cooking a p'ecc of dough
over a smoky Are on his mess tin. The

Thero were no ambulances at the-front at
that time, and wonderful were some of
the feats performed by men so badly

were able to stand at all. One Rough

known as "Bloody Angle." Here tho
wounded got their flrst aid dressing, and
if thoy could move were sent off 10 the
rear to make room for others whose
wounds were to stain the waters of the
river. Some men died and were burled on
tho spot where they fell.
Thero is a little group of graves at
"Bloody Angle." where Chaplain Swift
tolled for several dajs and nights, although
wounded himself, taking charge of the few
possessions and making notes of the last
messages of the djing men. Thero came
for several dajs after officers and others
looking for the missing; the photograph of
Colonel Wood, now Major General Wood,
was made while he was looking for dead
men at "Bloody Angle."
It took a number of able bulled men to

dead that I stopped them, and the onlj

"Oh. he ain't hit. either; he's prostrated

For several daj-s there was a grave In
the middle of the path by the side of the
main road. No hole had been dug, the
earth was merelj- plied up over the dead

to attend women who imagined that they were in the last stages of some dire
female malady, when upon examination the fact was revealed that obstructed
physiology of the stomach or bowels was the whole cause of the trouble.
The physician, however, who has not had experience may fall into the
error of diagnosing grave diseases of the female system when they do not
exist, because disorders of the bowels may be neglected until they give many
of the appearances of female disease. The bowels have been known to become
so clogged with hardened contents as to produce a condition closely resembling
uterine displacement, uterine prolapse (falling of the womb), and the sick
headache which is often attributed to female diseases is most often actually
due to some trouble in the digestive machinery involving the liver, stomach,
bowels or the great "Solar Plexus' which is the central telegraph station
from which nervous messages are transmitted to and from all the organs
in the abdominal cavity.
