Ths Smith's Manufacturers of the New England State and. lu fact, those of the East and Middle West are turning longing eye toward the South, keenly allva lo tbe vatt resource tbere contained, which hare ao long lain dormant. At a meet ing ot manufacturer held In New York t abort time ago this waa erldenced by ibe remarks marie at the banquet held at tbe WalJorf-Astoria. In the western part of North Carolina millions of horsepower la glng lo watte, yet every particle f It, at auial! cost, an be luiruessed and turned to good lir.iot. Several New Euglaud cotton uian ufueutrera remarked upon this, and each declaied thct br bad already obtained uitlun on valuable properties, with water power clone at baud, and lu tbt very near future tbey would be compelled to move tbelr planta South, where Ibe coat or labor U less and tbe cost of living proportionately amuller. This step, they declared. 1 umde necessary by tbt num. tier of co: ton mills that have sprung op, mushiooni-llke. lu tbe South, and today competition Is so keeu that If they wish to continue to compete with tbelr South ern rivals tbey mast manufacture, their wares in tbe cotton belt, where railroad rates and everything else old lu tbe cbeuper production of tbelr $uod. Western and Eastern manufacturers as sert that tbey, too, bare procured options on waterways In tbe South solely be cause of Iaor trouble lu tbe sectlona tbey seek to desert. Textile manufac turer of I'hilai'.elpbla are loud In tbelr omplalnts. and declare tbelr only salva tion He in the South, and this section will soon bear tbe bum of tbelr looms, noon tn be allenced In tbe City of Brotherly love. Organised labor ha not so far made It power as niaul.'est In tbe South as in the N'-Tth r.nd West, and tbe Southern uiaaufacturer feels that he Is singularly blessed lo tbla respect. In certain branches of tbe American Federation of Labor tbe scales are such that none can take exception to them, yet lu olbrrt tbelr rates are regarded as exorbitant, so tcuch so that It bas compelled many manufacturers to withdraw from active coaipetitlou wltb tbelr Southern com petitors. ' Building operations In the North bare been paralysed for tbe past six month, and matter bulidera claim that all chance of a profit In anch operation are pre cluded by the cost of labor and lumber, especially the former. On tbe oilier hand, tbe mechanics contend that work is not at plentiful at It osed to be aod. la order to live, they are compelled lo draw big wagea for their working hours, at those of enforced ldleneaa outnumber those In which they are employed. Trade journals for the month of Feb Gowns for the Midwinter Although the rush of the dreamakert' season is by this time of year about over, it Is often foand necessary to add to one's supply of gowns while tbe gayetlea of tbe midwinter festivities are still in swing. Tbe lighter, more perishable evening and reception gowna are first apt to show slgos of weir, asd It is gener ally necessary to hnve s few new frocks to tak t,be place of those partly wornont ones, so that one it in readiness for the social affairs of ths pre-leoten period. This Is emphatically a color season, and smartly gowned women are wearing such tout as vivid red, cerise, old pink, various shades of blue, jade and leaf greens, and all shsdes of yellow and light brvuze brown. Such colorings are not only used fcr high-necked gowns, such as one wonid wear to the theater or to a restaurant dlnuer or a reception, but some of these vivid shades are much in vogue for ball and dinner gowna na well. One uin't have a clever eye for color and an unerring tense aa to which toues to choose, however. In aelectinz odd or uu usual shades: Lut If an artistic des'go and color Is chosen the effect Is very at tractive. In designing denlle:e gowns lu auy of tbe prooouueed shades t,be ef fect Is always better If the trimming used Is of tbe tame tone, or has the de slgu tbrowu Into relief by got I or silver threads ot silk cord or a woven pattern of tbe foundatlou color. Whlfe or cream Ui-es, although chinning - u most fr.n k. ilo uot iovk well combined wltb fabrics of pruUouueed red or greeti shades, and mostif the hronxe and deep yellow toues also look better with self-ioior iriiumius. ror Instance, one exuulsite evening gown re. cuily shown uSs of red x'U mil I!, over j Awakening. ruary contain many notices of New Eng land aplnnera who are contemplating a removal to the South, and tbla exodus la not confined to those engaged In tbe cotton Industry alone. Leather good merchants, who also manufacture, are fol lowing the lead of the spinners, and tbey, too, arc becoming restless. Furniture manufactories have sprung op all over the Sooth, and wagon and spoke factories are rapidly increasing. Instead of re senting this influx of capital in I labor to tbelr domain, however, tbe Southern manufacturers are extending a warm wel come to all newcomers, since they are firm lu the belief that there la room for all, and tbelr atata'a lnflueuce, wealth aud Importance will be tbat much bene fitted. Many men attempt to make their mark In tbe world by Hist making a uark of their neighbor. Death's Harvest in a Quarter Century. . The year just ended marts the close of a quarter of a century which bat been remarkable for the deaths of noted men and women. Of course.

Tbe frock waa almost se ver in style, but waa atanningly effective, Ths coraage waa crossed In aurplico fash ion back and front, and tbe mull waa drawn down to tbe ratber high waistline la scarf effect, ths edges being banded with silver embroidery in a Greek key pattern on red. There were long scarf sleeve draperies edged with the silver embroidery, and the bottom of the tklrt waa appllqned with tprayt of stiver leaves and s band of tbe embroidery. Another lovely ball gown was of Jade green chiffon cloth over soft finish green taffeta. The skirt of this gown was un t rimmed, except for a six-inch hem of jade green satlo, which gave weight and set to the long-trained skirt. The cor sage waa alao crossed lu surplice fashion, but only In the front, tbe back of tbe gown belug drawn down Into t ratber deep T. The bodies was trimmed with bauds of green sequin embroidery aud tbere wa a little chemisette or tucker of white shirred tulle lace to fill In a little the deeply cut V-shaped decolletage. Tbe sleeves were draped around the arm aod were caught up almost to the shoulder with ornaments ot green spangles. The girdle waa of tbe satin and there were short, close-fitting lace undersleeves. Wltb almost all tbe ditiier or ball gowna some ornament Is worn In tbe hair. I shall discus hair ornaments at more length In my next article, but will only give mention to a few of tbe favorite styles today. Pa mil lie aigrettes attached to .a band of Jet, gold or silver, or having a jeweled oruament or a gilt or silver Ihiw at tbe base, are perhaps tbe smart est headdress, but they are very expeu- Buying a Home by Easy Stages. Not to many .yean ago tbe word "In stalment" struck terror to tbe hearts of tbe average man or woman, invariably bringing to mind visions of the weekly call .from tbe eol'ector. who, if not met with hit payment, would grow sbus.ve nd leave, with all sorts ot threats ac companying his departure. Times have changed, however, and the great extent to Which the Instalment plau has been applied to business of tod would sur prise tbe large majority of those who are ever Messed with ready cash ot unlim ited credit with which to procure tbla world's good things. In no one Held bat the Instalment flun taken such a leading part a lo that 'of real estate, and ita Innovation baa proved a boon to thousands of liu.-J-worklng men aod women who. desirous of tomt day owning their own tomes, take advantage ot the time payments tbut offered. Two thirds of the large resl'y concerns op era tlnr In large cities, and espe-ia!iy In suburban property, have found by tell ing their houses and lot on the Instal ment plan tbey have more offers from prospective homeowners than they can Oil. The man who thua purchaaea his prop erty naturally paya more for It than he would bad he the ready cash to plank down, but when be makes bis monthly payment to tbe owner, after entering luto such an agreement, be always feels tbat he bas a future to look forward to when tome day his property will be clear and all bis very own. Money tbua paid out amounts to no more In Its monthly irniu than when he was paying rent, and then there was no come back to it. All went to the landlord, and If the tenant lived to be as old as Methu selah his landlord would be tbat ranch better off and tbe tenant none tbe richer. Tfin New Jersey suburbs of New York were tbe first to see this Innovation ap plied, and tbe avidity with which tbe plan was elid upon by would-be land owners amply proves bow popular It baa become. One of tbe largest operators In realty In and around New York Is re- ' sponsible fur tbe statement that hit firm alone sold 12. 'aiO houses aud lots on the Instalment plan slu.-e ther adopted tbe. easy-payment system, three yearn ago. Senator Barrows' Latest. "llllaian baring discussed tbe i'-.'.llrond Rute Mill from ihe viewpnlu? of a corn field lawyer," said Senator Hale, "be Is now going to discuss the cuirtency ques tion from the standpoint of" "A cornfield financier." added Seuator Burrows, In hla Inimitable drawl. Season. slve, and though very becoming are really often rivalled by other much less pre tentious ornaments. 'Marabout aigrettes are worn In all color, and there ia a" great fancy for ribbon balr or naments. Band effects are Tery smart and tulle drawn cross the crown of tb head, just above the back comb, aad arranged in outstanding loops In a sort of wing effect Is also very pretty. Bnt to return to our topic of evening gowna and tbelr coloring, although ths pronounced tones are fashionable, the light more delicate shade in peach pink, silver blue, pearl gray and apricot yellow make np charmingly and ar aulted to more women than ar the more startling shades, which require s good djral of In dividuality and style to carry them off successfully. The clinging, transparent fabrics are generally liked for evening costumes, but some very delightful models are ahown with skirts aad bodices of satin, the bod ice being draped or trimmed with lace, so tbat very little of the plain satin is al lowed to abow. All blark and black and white tn com bination are alwaya smart and some Tery dlstingulshed-looklna: costumes are abown In all white, all black or In combination, without any color note whatever. Amoug tbe Illustrations are designs for gowns for various occasions, tbe first model pictured at the left of the larger plate being sketched from of gown of pale violet cloth. The bodice bad short Japanese sleeves, and was trimmed wltb braiding In self-color aud gold soutache braid. Very narrow fiat silk braid waa also used on tbe bodice aud outlined the little taba across tbe front, and there were alao small gold buttona and gold braid loops.

Mr. Aked It of pro nounced type, and none who beholda or beers blm can mistake that he ta a Britisher. John D, Rockefeller worships In this church, but this fact did not pre vent the Intrepid pastor from expressing bis opinion In no uncertain terms of a congregation tbat boasts of Ita combined aud Individual . wealth, and yet la con tent to allow tbe church to atmggle along with a deficit of 17.000. Calmly letting bis gaze rest upon tbe nptnrned face of tbe "Oil King" a tew Sundays ago, the minister exclaimed: "ILla church haa had an obligation of t'.tMs) to meet, and this deficit bas ex isted ever since I assumed the pastorate Let me atate right here that 1 am ashamed to be connected wltb a church In which such a ulggardly set worships, aud If tbla deficit la not met by today's offertory, consider uiy resignation lu your hands." That each aod every member of the eorgregatlon believed the pastor meant what he aald Is attested by tbe fact that when the contemn of the various plates were totaled It was found tbat totl.uoo had been then and there pledged. Mr. Rockefeller's share" Why, just too." It la good thing to be good, but don't be a good tblng. Seeking Homes in the Suburbs. Suburban and country life It becoming mure and more In vogue each year aa statistics go to show. This may be at tributed to two causes. Tbe first la that the man of tbe bouse finds his monthly ex penses considerably reduced, even though the expenses Incidental to commutation rate have to be figured In. Rent are far cheaper In tbe suburb and then, too, the shopkeeper lo these communities, ratber than let tbelr neighbors go to the large cities for their table supplies are content with smaller profits and mark their produce at prices which appeal to the residents. Then. too. tbe reuts of the shop-keeper are less and tbey can afford to uudersell their city competitors. Tbe second aud most plausible reason for this exodue to the suburbs Is due to tbe desire of fatbers to give tbelr chil dren tbe advantages to be derived from life In the open. Children are granted more freedom and more liberties lu tbe country than In tbe large cities, and tbelr associations are better, producing a let ter moral, tone. Houses lu the suburbs of all the iarg.T cities are renting readily aud tbe pureut la quick lo ace the advantages arising from such residences where more room, more comforts aod fresher air and purer water can be fouud. were of cream tulle face and the skirt was plain and made lu two-piece circular style. Tbe second gown pictured was very dainty aud attractive lu tbe original and would be an excellent model fur a debu tante or young girl. Tbe frock was made if pale pink crepe, the skirt being plait ed In about the hips, and trimmed by a series of double bias bands applied as tucks. Tbe bodice was trimmed with white Cbantllly lace Insertion, and a very becoming and effective touch was given by the little strappings of black velvet ribbon Iietwecn the rows of lace insertion. The third costume was of apricot crepe de rblne. allowing bias folds, strips and belt of liberty satin of a deeper shade of tbe same color. Tbe front of the corsnge bad a vest of ruffles of cream silk lace, trimmed wltb bows of deep oprlcot satin, and the aleeves were silt down the outer arm, the edges curved uud filled In with laiv ruffles. The Illustration showing a single figure was sketched from a design tor a cloth or velvet gown, tbe model belug In chiffon broadcloth in a soft peacock blue tone braided with self-color soutache. The bodice had a band of velvet outlining the yoke and the high Empire girdle was alao of velvet. Tbe skirt was un trimmed aud 'was in gored circular styVe. Baby Irish lace waa used for the yoke and tbe sleeve finish. DOROTHY DALE. Weddings and funerals are significant events for tbe professional thief. To pick a pocket at a funeral would be to court linn edinte disaster, but many of tbem think If a purs stolen at a wedding con tains gold It porteuda tbe best luck for the thief during tbt euaulng six months. ..p K ' ., n The name "bungalow'" was bonded to us a few years ago through the much-read books of Uudyard Kipling. As It Is Reu e rally used It is a misnomer, but after all it carries Willi It tbe Idea of a sunt mer cottage, a temporary home, although the original bungulovv, ao often tueuttoued In Kipling's works, was tbe permanent home built In tbe tropical climates, wltb low. thatched roofs and In most cases tbe earth for tbe floor. Nowadays the low spreading roofed borne such as are built In Southern California, shingled rottnites. Spanish mission-bouses, etc. a'l cotre under tbe name of bungalow. The name seems to carry wltb It a fascination. The cottage shown In our Illustration Is specially adapted for summer use. but la equally ;ood for a permanent borne, the general tliilli aud construction being car ried out according to the purpose for which It was designed. Tbe rugned ef fect of tbe Itoulder foundation ami the piers supporting the front roof over the plaua and the outside cb'muey arc all In keeping with the peculiar style of the bouse. If tbe large nnd small boulders are worked In together and. well laid lu cement the. effect he very artistic. The exterior of ibe bouse luuy be shingled nnd stained or fin'sbed lu rough cast cement. The sise is 21 feet t Inches In wldl h by 27 fect lu depth. In cluding the front piazza. The finish of the Ulterior Is lu Wash ington tlr or redwood. Jcft rough fruui the uw and stained, the fbNirrf also he n of fir and stniutd. . If the bouse Is built In n wooded district, tbe shingles on the roof will look very pretty lu light yellow. How to Clean a Clock Often a clock will refuse to run merely because It Is clogged with uust. A very simple way to clean a clock Is to place a piece of cotton or a small sponge soaked in kerosene In tbe bottom of It and let stand a few hours. The sponge will grad ually be filled with the dust from tbe works, and when the clock Is again start ed It will 'uerally run without further difficulty. If your nlckel plated alarm clock refuses to run, aa It will be apt to do after It bas been In nse a year or so. It msy be cleaned In the following way: Take a stiff feather -one from the wing of a chicken Is excellent aud dip It lu kero sene oil. Then Insert It In the circle around the winding keys and the keys that move tbe bands to remove the dust. Wind the clock and let It run for a few days, and then apply a tiny drop of tew ing machine oil from the can to each of the winding key. ' As to Cleaning; Silver. An excellent and eery easy method of cleaning silver is as follows: ' Half fill an enameled pull with hot soft water, adding one heaping tablespoonful of good lye. When dissolved add nil ths silver tbe water will cover. Then pour off tbe water, saving It if you wish to nse it a second time. Rinse tbe silver by pouring over It a bucketful of clear warm water and then dry at once with eoft towels. If all tarnish la not removed leave It In tbe lye water a little longer and then polish wltb chamois or a soft woolen rag. IT built lu town, tbe shingle would look better either dark brown or dark green. Tbe cost Is estimated at $3. OKI. exclusive of beating aud plumbing. This tmugalow Is well anupled for tbe seashore.

Selecting Living-room Often when one has a I'm. ted Income the problem of suitable nnd artistic bouse furnishing become s little difficult, aud tbe furnishing and decorating of a general living room Is often a vexing problem. Often, too, tbe tastes of the various members of the family differ so materially that It Is impossible to carry out auy particular style of furnishing: still, a living room shonld not be bard to furnish successfully, and If there 1 one room where simplicity should be employed It la In thia, the family gathering place. The exposure Is a must lmportsnt consid eration In choosing a general color scheme. If there are many southern win dows and there Is uuieb auullght. tbe wall coverings should be In aubdued tonea green and blues being especially good hut a room with northern light or with few wlndowa requires warm-hued wall coverings, lu yellow, buff, tan or soft red tone. Tbe woodwork must be considered, auto. In selecting wall coverings, and if tbe color or finish of tbe woodwork la not desirable It should lie stained ao that tbe whole wall Is In harmony wltb the fur niture and furnishings. A llvlug-room which i recently taw was au excellent' example of what can be done If one hut good taste, even with out a large sum of money being expended. This room was exceedingly simple In style, but the effect was charming. The house bad no reception-room or "parlor." so this large living-room was furnished to meet all these requirements. The woodwork wa, originally In light oak. hut was repainted an Ivory white and finished with a coat of Ivory enamel. The walls had a paneled wainscot about two Homemade Candle sticks and candle shades are al ways pretty and decorative tn a room, and especially for dining-room nse are much lu demand. A dining table Is al ways more attrac tive when prettil.e shaded candles are used either one each side of the centerpiece or at each cud or coruer of the -table, and in the accompanying sketch are a few of the new designs for artistic little shades. These can be made at a very jmall expeuse at borne, al though One band-made shades sell for large price In the shops. If oue bas eveu slight ability with tbe paint brush charming little (hades can be made of stiff water ro'or paper, decorate 1 witu water colors In some effective design. One very pretty set of shale- made in this way were of rough white water color paper, painted with a rather conventional row of trees In different shades of bright green about the lower edge. Tbere wa a faint suggestion of background lu a shadowy bluish outline of bills and moun tains, but the main design was tbe row of pine and other trees encircling the j shade. A straight hand painted green finished the shade at the top and bottom. Designs copied from old blue china are very attractive for shades, where a blue and white coloring Is desirable, nod then there are some very effective designs cop led from the leaded glass shades, the col orings being put on rather heavily, and the design outlined by heavy black line done in drawing Ink or wlt'i b ack water color paint. For dining-room use shades made over . li- i-nm Wr llk laid In tine olalts and finished by narrow gold or silver ! gimp and fringe are much liked, aud for a ! drawing-room, bedroom and living roor-i use there are the shades made from s'la . satin, fine cretonne, etc Oold t site the entrance. Tbt fireplace at ths left end of llvlug-room, with a aeat on eltber side, and at tbe right of the en trance a den: back of same la the dtnlng loom, connecting through the kitchen under tbe stairs with large butler's pan try. The cbambersar all provided wlUt good closets. StCO.ND FLCUIt ri-;.. Furnishings feet high, and extending from thia to the cornice tine were panel covered with a striped paper lu two toues of red out lined with ivory white moiling. Ts ceiling waa tinted Ivory and ths Boor was of hardwood, covered with ruga, which had predominating red tones. Ths furniture was mostly lu mahogany, add there were several large, comfortable chairs and a davenport, cushioned or Up holstered la crimson. Tbe draperies used for door and window eurtalna were f striped Huff similar -to tbe wall paper, aud there were several growing plant la green wicker Jardinieres about, which added much to tbe effect of the room. Book shelves were built In along on end of the room, and on either aide of the wide doorways. The room, when finished, and with the numerous photographs, pic tures lump and other small fittings about, was extremely cozy aud attractive. If one cannot afford mahogany furni ture, tbe mission furultnrs is an excel. leut choice, as It la well made and come In good, simple styles. In decorating a room in which mission furniture Is to be used tbe treatment should be In accord ance with the furniture. If possible. A high wainscot and beamed ceiling la moat appropriate, and the atuudlug woodwork should be plain and heavy. Tbe walla may be covered with plain cartridge paper or fabric In keeping with such a room, and rough plaster, tinted a color to harmouisc with the woodwork. Is also excellent For draperies, homespun flax or any of tbe plain, rough fabrics sre very appropriate, and If tbe wails ars quite plain draperies wltb a simple ttgnr may be used. BEATRICE CAREY. Candle Shades. hi ill over plain or flowered satin Is eery rich and elective, aud among the sketches are shown several other good designs. The Empire shade sketched was of pale tan corded silk, embroidered In Veen silk and gold, with . a II. tie picture set lo. It could also be copied lu water coiora. The shade pictured was edged with gilt fringe and had "collar" o;i top of g It braid. Tbe other silk shade pictured was very simple to make, but Is uovel lu style. It was nnide from a piece of silk nine luches square, with a bole cut in the ceuter. The edge of tbe silk was turued up ouce oil the right side, and a threc-l:iclt deep bead fringe was then sewed oil wltb a narrow gimp matching tbe silk switched over the edge of tbe fringe as n. unisli. Tbla style shsde Is pretty lu various colorings, espe clallv lu the warmer tints, si. eh as yellow, ph-.k or red. BRA'lltlCV: CAREY.
