Junior Tailored Suits $15. i
Nothing short of a sensation has been created
by the presentation of these handsome smartly
tailored suits for misses and small women. Com
bined with the modest price, the ease with which
these suits are fitted is a wonderful attraction.
Many women have been able to put them on and
wear them without alteration. They come in all
the wanted colors and shades, skirts from 33 to
36 inches in length. They must be seen to be
fully appreciated.
Women's Easter Suits $25.
We are showing a variety of astonishingly beautiful tailored
suits In the dressy hipless model, priced at $25.00. The range of
colors Is complete and the materials are French serges, widow-ale
worsteds, serges and fancy worsteds. The coats are lined
with guaranteed satin and the skirts are new flare gored models
of oxceedlng grace.
We have a small quantity of souvenirs left,
which will be given out with purchases of $5 or
over, while they last. " v

THREE DAYS AND A
HALF TOJTIIE COAST
What the Befen Cot Off on the Santa Fe
Will dt for Travel to California,
According to William Allen "White
"the old order changeth." This Is cer
"tainry true of railroads, especially in
Xh West. In the early days the first
harbinger of this beneficent Institution
was the hustling, smooth tongued
'right-of-way man. After him came
the road itself. The promoters always
had a keen scent for bonds and as a
result their creation sometimes wan
dered aimlessly about without appar
ent; ndt real. There was a very de
finite purpose in this twisting and
turning. -It was to reach certain lo
calities and gobble the bonds that the
right-of-way man, if he did his duty,
-had arranged for.
The voting of bonds was a favorite
amusement among the early pioneers.
Each community had unlimited faith
In its own eectlon. Fortunately in
most cases this faith has been justi
fied. The payment of these bonds was
a. matter that did not concern them.
That was left to future generations.
The enthusiastic voter would have
moved on or been called to a better
land by that time. And so railroad
building In the early days frequently
offered new point to the old adage that
the longest way round is the shortest
way. home.
After a few necessary preliminaries
In the way of receiverships and re
organizations, a very original discovery
was made. This was that better time
could be made and larger loads hauled
ott a straight road than on a crooked.
Immediately began a great straighten
ing of curves.
Then' another discovery. This time
it was that while local business largely
cares for iteelf. it requires a m'ghty
.hustling to secure and hold long dis
. tance competitive traffic.
The big systems that had. been pok
ing their noses farther and farther
west began casting about for some
means of keeping, each to itself, a
Brood share of the constantly Increas
ing California traffic. After the traffic
is secured fast time Is necessarv to
hold it. Fast time Is expensive, espec
ially over mountain grades, and roads
that had such grades to contend with
' began to seek for some solution of the
difficulty.
The officials of the Santa Fe System
Seem to have solved it to their satis
faction by the building of the Belen
Cut-off. This Is a line from Clovis, on
their Pecos Valley lines, to Belen, N.
a point on the main line near
Albuquerque. The saving in distance
Is not great, but dodging the tremend
ous grades of the Raton and Gloriefia
ranges of the Rockies means a great
saving, in time and operating expenses.
Probably the main line through Colo
rado and New Mexico will always be
popular with the tourist travel. It is
a fascinating trip over the romantic
Did Santa Fe trail through the heart
of a country famous from the days of
Coronado to Kit Carson, but the new
line will offer that all important re
quirement of these later days a sav
ing In time.
It took the Aiu-Saxons about two
and a half Centuries to march from
Plymouth Rock to the sunset sea. We
their descendants, do it now in about
four days. With the opening of the
Beler; cut-off the time will probably be
reduced to about three and a half
days.
Verily, the old order changeth. Are
week end parties to California to be
the thing in the near future?
DR. HILL LISTENED TO BY
ATTENTIVE CONGREGATIONS
Dr. J. Wesley Hill, pastor of the
pkletTopolitan Temple of New York and
fejwrted to be one of the leading
preachers of the Methodist faith in
this country, spoke at both the mora
jnflr and evening services of the Wash
Intrton Park M. E. church yesterday.
A mr-re forcible, elocruent and inter
fering preacher had never before been
peard at the churoh nd at both ser
rlcfs the edifice was filled to its ca
pacity. His morning theme was "Christ's
Picture of Heaven", and in the even
big "The Hidden Sorrows of Life." Ha
jptgressed from his chosen topic, how
ever, and confined his evening sermon
to the quotation from the Corinthians,
Tor now we see through a, glass,
flaxkiy: but then face to face; now 1
know In part, but then shall I know
even as also I a,m known." Dr. Hill
Is closely associated- with President
Faft, having made an address recently
k.t Chicago for the President, and the
bitter reciprocated by coming to the
Metropolitasa Temple and delivering a
talk.
Easter services will be held at the
tew Jewish Congregation Nusach Arte

are so treated, and one can thoroughly
enjoy the ever-changing beautiful
views, without having to swallow the
proverbial "peck of dirt," we are told
to expect. By all means let us have
oiled roads, where possible, rather thin
sprinkling, which oftentimes only
makes muddy streets in the early
morning, and by noon, thick layers of
dust to be whirled to the four corners
of the earth, by every wind that blows,
to the discomfort of man and beast.

Per Cent More.
(Special from United Press).
London, April 5. Fear of an event
ual clash between England and Ger
many took tangible form today in an
increase of Lloyd's insurance rates
against such a war from eight to ten
per cent. The new insurance that
Llcyds is writing Is against a war be

The increase in insurance rates and
general uneasiness are attributed di
rectly to Germany's activity in naval

JEWISH FEAST OF THE "PASSOVER"
Coincident with the Easter celebra
tion in the Christian churches, the
feast o the Passover will be observed
by the Jews, their commemoration of
the delivery of ancient Hebrews from
Egyptian bondage beginning at sun
down tonight and lasting for eight
days. The first and last two days
are particular fasts and on those days
the pious Jews sustain from all work
ani spend a large part of their time
in the synagogue. During the contin
uance of the Passover the Jews are
not supposed to touch leavened bread.
The Passover like Faster is a variable
feast, and it was during the celebra
tion of it that Christ was put to
death. .

KNIGHTS TERN OUT
500 STRONG AT
K. OF C. RETREAT
Eloquent Sermon by Director of Dioces
an Missionary Band.
Special Semces AH of This Week at St.
Augustine's Church Father Mitchell
Speaks Tonight.
At St. Augustine's church last even
ing the first annual retreat for the
Knights of Columbus of this city was
opened!, about five hundred Knights
from the five councils in this city at-tei-ding.
While annual retreats are
quite the rule among the western coun
cils of the Knights of Columbus, it is
an innovation in this city and the
members of the organization have en
thusiastically grasped the opportunity
to stir up the immortal in them- and
at the same time fittingly close the
Lenten season.
The retreat will last throughout the
week, evening services being- held at
which sermons will be preached by the
members of the Connecticut Aiposla'jk
Mission Band under whose direction
the mission is being given. On Satur
day night the members wJU go to con
fession and on Sunday morning they
will go in a body to Holy Commun
ion. Last evening's service commenced at
7:30 o'clock when fully five hundred
of the knights filled the center aisle
of St. Augustine's spacious church.
The other aisles were filled with
friends of the members and others
wishing to participate in the retreat,
which while primarily for the knights,
is open to any one who may care to
attend. The vesper service was con
ducted by Rev. Father O'Mearo, dur
ing which the choir rendered an ex
ceptional musical program. The sub
ject of the opening evening's sermon
was "The Warfare of the Christian
Knigiht," Rev. Father P. H. McLean,
superior of the band, using for his
text, "What shall it profit a. man if he
gains the whole world and lose his
own soul." Following this most' elo
quent lecture. Rev. Father J. F. Calla
han, of St. Charles' church and a chap
lain of the John F. Rogers Council,
sang benediction.
The sermon for the second evening
of the retreat, tonight, will be preach
ed by Rev. Father Mitchell. His sub
ject will be "The Enemy of the Soul."
Rev. Father Lynch, pastor of St.
Charles' church and chaplain of the
Cecil- Calvert Council, will officiate at
the benediction of the most Holy Sac
rament. The services will commence
at S o'clock.
LABOR CONDITIONS
ARE MENACING
IN FRANCE
Government, Threatened by General Sus
pension, Doubts Loyalty of Army.
(Special from United Press.')
Paris, April 5. Labor conditions in
France, particularly in Paris, have
grown so menacing since the govern
ment's weakening in the recent post
men's a.nd telegraphers' strike that to
day the -government is receiving ex
haustive inquiries regarding police
heads and) army commanders as to
their ability to combat the threatened
general strike of May L The big la
bor demonstration at the Hippodrome
last night, attended by nearly 10,000
agitators at which the organization of
a suspension was openly recommended,
is taken seriously. Past demonstra
tions by the labor leaders have shown
that they are not in the habit of mak
ing threats until they are prepared to
carry out their plans.
Grave fears are entertained as to the
loyalty of many divisions of the army.
