THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 7, 1911.
PAGE ELEVEN m Advantage of This Opportunity mm We rT Overland KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS ft Medals Were Also Handed Around Regardless. The regular meeting of the Knights of Pythias on Friday nij;ht was of more than ordinary interest for tlie grand 'chancellor. Judge Camplell of Tucson was present and for his en tertainment work was exemplified in the first and third degrees. Another matter out of the usual run was the presentation of the gold medal to the winning team. There were two teams in competition for degree work, one composed of the younger members and the other of flie older. The latter team did not uppeur and the medal in the form of a watcli charm was presented by Chancellor Commander Edens to the younger team. It will be worn by the captain, Albert Stratton. The pres entation speech was made by Judge Campbell. That was not the only medal awarded that night. Attention had been called to the merit of the re cipient. I. L. Gregory, .by The ItVpub lican. Mr. Gregory was at Douglas, on life insurance business, at the time of the battle of Agua Prieta and the discretion he displayed has challenged the admiration of all who know him. His loyalty and his solicitude for the interest of his company in which he carries heavy insurance has further endeared him to the Mutual Benefit Life. Accordingly there' had been pro cured at great expense a tin medal about the size of a pancake and at still further expense a broad red rib bon was attached to it. When the award was tendered, Mr. Gregory with characteristic modesty declined it. He- said that he had done no more than his duty by himself, his familv and . his company. But the i lodge was insistent and finally Mr. Gregory was chloroformed and deco rated. There was inscribed on the medal in the most expensive black paint procurable, a statement setting forth that it was awarded for heroic conduct under fire. n GLUCK AND VERDI.

New York Evening Post. o CHANGING THE CALENDAR. And now it is the calendar that is to be changed. A little while ago it was the clock, says the New York Tribune. Somebody discovered that there was a deplorable waste of day light involved in sleeping for an hour or two after sunrise and making up for it by working for an hour or two by artificial light after sunset; which, of course, was indisputable. That en gaging reform was not universally adopted, but its inventor was not dis couraged, and now he emerges again with his scheme of turning the cal endar topsy-turvy. He has discovered that the real cause of povtrty. war, pestilence, ig norance, domestic infelicity and all the other -ills to which flesh is heir is to be found in the calendar. Just think of it! The days of the month shift year by year to different days of the week, so that in one year Christmas falls on Sunday, the next on Monday, and so on. That neces sitates printing new calendars each year. Think of the stupendous cost of that! Militarism isn't a marker to it. No wonder the people are Im IK)verished. And then think of the time that is wasted in looking up dates, to see on what day of the week they fell, or will fall. How can men be expected to accomplish any thing when all their waking lwiurs and much of their dreams are occu pied with wrestling with the calen dar? If only it had not been for that wo might already have got into the twenty-first century instead of drag ging along in the twentieth. And so it is proposed to knock the calendar galley west by making one day in each year a nameless dies non, leaving 3C4, which is an exact multiple of seven, and thus causing each day of the month or year al ways to fall upon the same day of the week. Nothing could be simpler. Of course, it would play mischief with the world's habits, customs and convictions, but what does a trifle like that count for against the im measurable gain of being able to use the same patent medicine almanac two or three years running? Why, the wastefulness of print and time i f( to the trade in general that we have - tU added to our LARGE LINE OF MERCHANDISE a line of ' Warehouse Company Corner Third under the present system is almost as great as the waste of ink in writ ing "through" when "thru" would serve as well. We shall never reach the millennium while we are so slow and wasteful. If only Pope Gregory had hit upon this labor saving plan when he arranged his calendar the world might have been in the millen nium even now. And that would have been a sweet boon to this generation, for in those thousand years there will be no freak reformers. o FINE TO SEND YOUR FRIENDS.

One of the easiest ways of giving a new lease of life to an old silk or satin dress is by veiling it with some trans parent material net, chiffon, mar quisette, silk voile, etc. Some of these materials are quite expensive. The nets, for instance, cost very little and are two yards wide. Chiffon is about a yard and a quarter wide, and you can get a very wearable quality for SO or jO cents a yard. 1 You can use a black veiling over white or over a color provided the color is brilliant enougli not to bo to tally obscured by the overdress.-Black worn with white or with a vivid color is the most popular color of the year, but you can use one color with another, if you like. Kor Instance, American beauty pink is used with royal purple, old blue with flesh color, king's blue and flamingo, rose over white, black and old gold, royal blue and mastic, parrot blue and yellow, and so on through an almost endless series of combinations. If you nave an old gown that you want to use as a foundation for a new dress of chiffon, net, etc., you must first rip the old skirt apart and cut it over by a new pattern. Its lines must be narrow, for merely veiling the dress wi!l not give it a new, smart look if its cut shows its age. If you are remak ing a semi-princess dress it will prob ably only be necessary to rip the skirt; but if it is a princess dress you ouglit to take it all apart, although the prin cipal change will be in the skirt part of the dress. In recutting your foundation be sure that the lower edge of the skirt is in perfect condition. If the facing is worn or frayed, replace It, or it will give a shabby look to your dress. Look over all the hooks and eyes and buttonhole loops. The hooks and eyes should be resewed if they have pulled or worked loose. If you find that you will have to replace the chemisette and under sleeves, use a plain, fine net. ; As to necks and sleeves in general, all simple, practical dresses and tail ored waists have high necks and long sleeves. For afternoon dresses and for semi-formal daytime affairs, sleeves are either elbow or three quarter length. In an afternoon dress you can use a high, collarless, French or Dutch, neck, the neck depending largely on the purpose of the gown. For a dress that you would wear to a restaurant, a matinee or a reception the waist should be high-necked or collarless. But if you are receiving or serving at an afternoon reception you can use the French neck, which is a little lower than the collarless, but not quite as low as the Dutch, or else the Dutch neck itself. o PANAMA TO RIVAL SUEZ. Competition Between the Two Canals Expected by Goethals. Competition between the Panama canal and the Suez canal is expected as soon as the former waterway is open to commerce, says the Minne apolis Journal. The United .States government realizes this, and'fls pre paring for if- It is the Intention, if congress sanctions the step, .'to begin business at Panama at once witli a cut below the tolls charged by the Suez canal. That the Suez canal will meet the Avenue and Jackson Street cut is not doubted. That canal Is owned by a private corporation, and without competition, it has been earn ing a gross revenue of upward of $20,000,000 a year But if the Panama canal takes away any material share of the Suez business. Col. Goethals has assured President Taf t that the Suez canal can come down to the proposed Panama rates and still de clare dividends of reasonable size. The idea of competition between canals on opposite sides of the At lantic ocean may seem rather far fetched, but the canal authorities of the" United States government explain It in a rational way. They say the North Atlantic Is the harbor of the world's wholesale and manufacturing trade. The principal business of the world centers around the shores of that sea. The principal trade of the world runs into and out of the North Atlantic. That Is where all the rest of the world comes for Its goods, and it Is the clearing house through which it does its business and finances its operations. Heretofore there has been but one ! chief gateway out of this center of trade, that to the eastward through the Suez canal. But now there Is to be a gateway to the wastward as ' well, through the Panama canal. j Hence the competition between the two gates must flow on all trade be tween North Atlantic ports and the other side of the world. The ques tion of which avill get the. greater share of it is one solely of dollars and cents. Col. Goethals, the builder of the Panama canal, who expects to throw ; it open to commerce in less than two . . . , i .1.1.. . r-! years, has .explained an una i ' dent Taft during his present visit to Washington. It will not be a matter 'of sentiment, but purely'one of which canal and which route will enaiile the ships to deliver their cargoes at the lesser expense. The Suez canal at present charges a toll of about $1.70 per net registered ton, American money and American measure. From the attitude of both the president and Col. Goethals it is Inferred that they will advocate a charge at Panama' of not more than tl nor net reir Istered ton, and possibly 'even less 'than that. What they would like to have congress do, is to gne the president authority to fix the rate at anything tetween 50 cents and $1.50 a ton. so that he may be able to decide unon a figure finally to meet Its operating expenses, there being no evidence of Intention to try to maite money out of it. Of course, these rates refer to world traffic, and not to American ships, as the right is al ways retained to let American vessels use the canal toll free if tlmt shall be deemed best by congress. -o YOUNG GIRL'S SUMMER OUTFIT. In planning the spring and early . ... summer outnt lor a young bi i costumes must Ikj included, a plain Mrs. M. J. Anderson, Proprietor. BAGS and WRAPPING PAPER! ". is invited to examine the stock tailored coat suit and a one-piece gown of silk. Witli numerous pretty white shirtwaists and colored blouses, the tailor-made gives no end of ser vice, and the foulard, pongee or rajah one-piece gown will carry her through the hardest dress-up wear of the sea son. She can don it for afternoon oc casions and utilize it for a house gown during the winter. For with growing girls it is no economy to plan garments with a view to wearing them two years. Light summer gowns eah always be added. They are easily concocted, and inexjiensive, if made at home, says the Chicago Becord-Her-ald. For school 'and evory-day wear dark colors are best, dark blues, tans. browns and grays. The colors fash ionable this year, the cerise, brilliant blue, green, coral and the like, may be most appropriately, indulged in by young girls for afternoon and formal dress. Wide leather lelts on every-day suits are more popular tiian sashes, and much oftener seen. The material of these belts should be shiny patent leather, not dull finished. Colored kid belts are sometimes seen and are in good form, but the black belt, wide and of leather. Is the favorite. The little girl's costume also shows the peasant sleeve, collarless and short sleeved effects In general favor. In fancier dresses for young misses, draped skirt effects are employed. Voile over "soft silk, marquisette over crepe do chine, chiffon over satin every material is draped over a heav ier lining. .For this reason. It is prac tical to make over old frocks. They can be turned out looking as good as new, the changes constituting them into new frocks. The "letting-down" Is also simplified by the possibility of adding a broad band of satin as a border. Contrasts in the making up of ma terials are just as much used with girls' dresses as with adults. Dark blue is made up over pink, brown over blue, blue over green and so on. Embroidery, except on shirtwaists, is not favored, being considered too elab orate for youth. Sample folds of satin, insertions or designs in bend ing are good. Fichus, surplice lines. frills of mousseline, not plaited, but hem stitched, are all popular effects In the season's category of things proper for the young girl. Three-piece suits of rajah are about as wise an investment as can be made. With the skirt and waist made sepa rately, there is introduced a change for lingerie blouses on summer days, and for a harmonious, dressy sort of outfit, when worn with the coat. "Whenever the color is practical with the street suit, tan shoes should be worn. o You do better at the Farmers' Co operative Creamery Co. on Second HOTEL HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA BETWEEN LOS ANGELES AND THE BEACHES.

I must add a word with respect to that most fascinating of all things, the Virginia girl's voice.

There are no such voices now. even in Virginia, I regret to say. Not of their own fault, but because of contact with strangely altered conditions, the alto gether charming Vjrginia girls I some times meet nowadays, have voices and intonations not unlike those of women in other parts of the country, except that they preserve enough of the old lack of emphasis upon the stronger syl lables to render their speech often dif ficult to understand.
