Thev represent the latest fad and Mr. i Kurzmah predicts will soon oust the . pet canary that Newport grand dames have been carrying tms summer. "Before leaving, Paris I visited the i Jenny collection,''' said Mr. Kurzman. "In spite of the war"' it- was greater land srrander" than ever. The fashions ;l at the resort Ezains le Bain were of I the gayest, although the war has un doubtedly made the styles more sen : sible. The pigeons came from Lau ' sanne, and before I could take them away 1 had to make a generous con tribution to the Church of St.-Francis 'and the municipality, which , Jointly : control thev new industry." The itote of simplicity which has taken the place of the former elabor- ate styles is the: most startling change 'in Paris fashions, according- to Miss 'Frances Clyne buyer for J, M. Gid dings Co."' 1 "This simplicity has 'found, vent in the new military styles now springing up," said Miss Clyne. "Jeanne Lan- vin, for. example, has put out many ! original hats and street dresses done : in the cossaick style,- with, its Puri i tanical -straightness of line. A typi ; cal dress is one in velveteen trimmed in tinsel and astrakhan.- The striking feature of ' this is that it is made of one piece. ' . ' "' ' "There is an absolute change in the fashions," she added, "and no doubt ! exists that the high crowned-hat is to be the hat' of the -season. - With the high - hat is worn .: the Oriental veil, which covers the upper, part of the j face: in front, with its ends trailing I off to the waist line at the back. ; -v "High i boots, , high-crowned . hats, , high skirts, -seem to ibe the cry. With the short afternoon dresses of net are worn . large chiffon ; muffs and collars to match. " The short skirt has even, become part, of the evening gown, so that now . high boots matching the j gown are worn to the opera and for- mal evening functions." . r. j WOMAN'S RELIEF CORPS PAST OFFICERS ELECT 4 ...

Master Nathan Lerner pre ceded his three brothers ' by 18 months..'. a ; " , ; - - "Four bt-s, all potential baseball heroes, within a year and half. That's a pretty godd , record, isn't it?" their jprpud -mother-asked yesterday. There was ho denying this." A future Eddie Collins , wailed in the crib nearby and the mother smiled and shook her head? at the gallant three. 1 -. x "No use," . she admitted; can't tell them apart, r So I just labelv them first, second and third basemen. That's all we can do until, my husband and 1 aecMe what we shall name them." i -Just then . small Master Nathan, with all the superior -wisdom of his 18 months, appeared by the babies bedside. Every' since he was a day old he had been a predistined short stop in ihe eyes of his doting parents, and now . as captain of the three he showed a very unsportsmanlike jeal ousy of the attention the wee strang ers were attracting. - ' ' "He doesn't quite "understand," the mother explained.

BUILDING WRECKER KILLED. New Haven, Sept. 1,- -Amerigo i'er ri, employed ,by a contractor of this city ,in razing a building at the State Masonic Home in Wallingford, died at the hospital to-day trom an in jury received while at- work yester day.. , .. " ; ,-''' y Rev. Stephen F. Chernitzky, ptistor of St Stephen's church, which is at tended by the Hungarian Roman Catholics of the Westv End, is the author of an interesting article on the conditions of , the Hungarian-A meri can of Bridgeport, which is published in this week's editon of Bridgeport, Hungarian publication. It is a strong plea for the dissemination of educa tion. Father Chernitzky's article is en titled, "What Will Become of Us? In view of the fact that Bridgeport has more Hungarian residents than any other city in America,? in pro portion to total population, the ar tide is of especial interest, and by permission of the editors of "Bridge port," The Farmer herewith repro duces it: v" Bridgeport is the lan-gest Hungarian city in America. This is not an imag inary statement. It is an undeniable fact, easily proven by statistics. Com paratively speaking, there , are no-, where as many Hungarians in this country as right here in Bridgeport- Let ithose who 'neither know : nor take thi3 for granted, consider the following facts taken from the offi cial censusNjf 1910: Out of the 4,766,883 inhabitants of New York, about80,000 are Hungar ians.' i 'v .' . Out of the 2,185, 283inhabitants of Chicago, about 15,000 are Hungar ians. Out of the 1,549,008 inhabitants of Philadelphia, about 10,000 are Hun sarians. ! - Out of the 560.663 inhabitants of Clevelend, about 40,000 are Hungar ians. We may naturally conclude that there are more Hungarians ' in .the above cities today. It can therefore safely be stated, that, in Philadel phia. one out of every 155 is of Hun garian descent; in Chicago, one out of every 145 is or Hungarian aescenw i" New York, one out of every 59 is of Hungarian descent; in Cleveland one out of every 14 is of Hungarian de scent. Cities with less than 10,000 Hun garians may not be interested' in the final aim of .this article. Up to this date, the inhabitants of the city pf Bridgeport, total 130,000 or thereabouts. Out of this numb, genuine Hungarians claim at least 13,000. : 'Consequently. 1 it is but- natural to say that, here in Bridgeport, one out of every ten men is Hungarian. There fore our preliminary statement, ac cording to which Bridgeport is Amer ica's largest , Hungarian cenxer, im plies no exaggeration. Now,' what follows: . X- The Hungarians of is this 4 country have nowhere; else ' more 'ianceilana hope for material as well as for social welfare than right here in Bridge port" In other ; words:'- all the 2,000 Hungarian colonies scattered throughoit the United-. States, can justly expect their f ellowcpuntrymen at Bridgeport to prove their' useful ness and their intellectual ability -to the contmunity in which they live. For a crowd of 13, Od can more easily show its worth before 117,000, than if same should be required from 80,- 000 Hungarians in a city like New. York. , It is true that New York and Cleve land saw earlier settjers from Hun gary than the city of Bridgeport. Not withstanding of this,' it is also ' true that, in the eyes of the English speak ing population, from a sympathetica! standpoint, nowhere else are the Hun garian co-habitants -cutting as .much figure as here in Bridgeport. Our number may be somewhat curtailed, after the war is over- ..The bulk, how ever, will remain, j Labor conditions may become more and more favorable elsewhere, too.- And yet, it is by no means a. dream . to opine that, with in the 'next 50 years, the city of Bridgeport . will not - suffer want of work, irrespective of warlike or of peaceful times, no matter, who will happen to sit in the presidential chair. - r Factories are 'growing here like mushrooms. Not only the makers of murderous ammunition, but , several other industrial concerns also: One of our leading citizens stated, that in five years from now, our population will number 200,000. Twenty- years hence, this city may surpass half a million. 1 And who I. pray,, do constitute the population of Bridgeport? Only one half of , them are Americans, as the term goes. The- other half is com posed of- immigrants, ' and .of their firs generation. Let- us name them, in their numerical order: Genuine Hungarians (the so-called Magyars), Italians. Slovaks from Hungary Ger mans, Poles, Ruthenians from Hun gary, Lithvanians, Swedes, SloveriV' ians from Hungary and Greeks. As far -.as ther number goes, genuine Hungarians lead the so-called "for eign" element here. 1 Concerning their - birth rate, farrf ilies of immigrants are more prolific than those of Americans. This is an undeniable 1 fact, sadly admitted by; the English-speaking races them selves. The prophecy built upon this fact, goes to say that, in the near fu ture, other - than English-speaking races may numerically outwit the rest of our cohabitants. However, only numerically! Hungarians may retain their num erical leadership here ' amongst im migrants. However, everybody knows that clubs, cities, countries as well as any other social gathering can never be ruled by masses, but only by per sons whose education stands above the rest of fellow-citzens. The city of Bridgeport will by no means recog nize the existence of her Hungarians unless they are, able to boast of a sufficiently large number of their children who have become, thoroughly familiar with the English, and also who are honestly able to compete with the rest of her inhabitants, in matters industrial, commercial and intellectual. There is no room in the heart of a real American for envy or jealousy. He gives opportunity to every immigrant. He pays well for good work. Lavishes 'encouragement on the more skillful, does not close the road toward honored positions before the educated child of an im- migrant. An upright American never cares whether one's father happened to be a Slovak, a German or a Hun-: garian. All he says is: let the best ones conquer! J - And yet, it should not be the same to us, Hungarians. .Our policy ought to be entirely different from what it used to be 10, 15 years ago. Had we seen to it, in years gone by, that our children, now grown to man hood, should not satisfy themseleves with the mere speaking limit of the English, but, besides, should have gained college education, there ought to be here today, some clergymen, some physicians, some lawyers, some engineers, some commercial scions and some city officials, of Hungarian descent. Isn't our number large? Can we complain of hard times? Are there not hundreds and hundreds of us owning real estate or saving ac counts? Ask any public school teacher, they will tell you that most of the Hungarian children are smart, are' docile, are obedient. The rest of this - city as well as the rest of the American-Hungarians r are therefore, entitled to justly expect that we should, at last, shake off indifference to higher standards, contentment in menial work, and uncertainty toward our own future. Far be it from me to make comparison Between college- bred children of Hungarian parentage and those of other immigrants. And yet we have to admit that quite ,few more children of ours ought to continue schooling after their 14th year. , , Shoiild we not care ..to understand and t;o heed this well-meant warning, nobody else but our own selves will be to blame, lf, in years from now. children of other races will.be better qualified to rule over us. Our own growing generation would then fully be justified, to bitterly criticize the indifferent- parents who have been cruel enough to force their 14 -year old daughters into the stifling atmos phere of a factory. So much the more as some of us could easily af ford to wait a few more years, in 'or der to increase the educational value of ' our children, land, by means of higher knowledge, enable these chil dren to uplift the name of theirj race. September, the new year of school ing, is at the door. It depends upon us, what we want. De' we care to re main in the background, or is there any spirit of intelligence in us? Will it be all right if thfe elevation of ouf race here is postponed until the next generation, when childreji of careless parents will have, learned - their sad lesson. Or, do we prefer perhaps, to s-rasp the splendid -,. opportunity of higher- education Voffered to our chil dren especially by this , land of the free, and by the Hungarian-loving city of Bridgeport. " ' TWO SHOT WHILE MOTORING ALONG LONELY HIGHWAY Providence, R. I., Sept. 1. The condition of Dr. D. C. Franklin Mohr, of this city and Newport, who with Miss Emily Burger, of this city, was mysteriously shot while seated in his automobile on a dark road in Bar rington last night, was regarded as extremely critical to-day. Miss Bur ger was reported better and it was believed that her wounds would not prove fatal. George W. Healis, Dr. Jkfohr's chauf feur, is held by the Barrington police' who are not satisfied with his declara tion that he saw no other automobile at the time. Dr. Mohr and Miss Bur ger were shot. Miss Burger repeated to-day the story of the affair that she tod last night. She said that she and Dr. Mohr wore on the way to Newport and that their automobile stopped in Bar rington because of engine trouble. While the chauffeur wo-- repairing the engine she and Dr. Mohr remained in the tonneau. She said she saw an other car approaching from the road and as it came alongside several shots were fired at Dr. Mohr and herself. Both -were wounded in the head and shoulder.
