NEW TAILOR- MADES
In studying the newest fashions' de
signed for Fall wear one is impressed
by the continued suppression of hip
curves as against, the defining of the
. wai3t- line and the emphasizing of the
shoulder and bust curves. A very re
fined type of tailored frock is shown
here, carried . out in Italian brown
broadcloth. The front of the jacket is
fashioned in panel style, while to the
sides and back is attached a two-piece
circular section. In average size the
costume calls for 4"4 yards 54-inch ma
terial. A glance at the cutting guide will
show what careful maneuvering is
necessary to use . the material to the
best advantage. Today's lesson deals
exclusively with the cutting of the
coat, for the model is well adapted to
separate wear and may be carried out
in any material. The circular skirt
section of the coat comes first and is
laid on a lengthwise thread of the ma
terial, the straight edge running along
the selvage edge of the cloth. Along
the lengthwise fold is laid the back, and
next the underfacing, followed by col
lar, cuff, and belt. Between the front
and the upper sleeve section which are
placed near the selvage of the goods
and the sections of the pattern laid
along the lengthwise fold, the trim
ratng piece, undersleeve and pocket are
Wtfl. In this way there is practically
no waste, and the small pieces of ma
terial that are left can be used to cover
the buttons.
In connection with the new tailored
costumes there are shown charming
blouses and sometimes, the waist re
peats the color of the gown, if not the
tone.
Pleated skirts are the favorite models
to wear with the jackets of long line
and are liked because they express dig
nity and reserve.
Buttons as a trimming are to be used
extensively. They will serve no pur
pose but that of ornamentation pure
and simple, even most of the fasten
ings of frocks being really closed with
snaps and the buttons serving to hide
the snap stitches.

GIRLS WHO MAKE UNWISE
CHOICE OF FRIENDS
"Thou truest friend man ever knew,
Thy constancy I've tried;
Where all were false, I found thee
true,
My counselor and guide."
What girls and young women are
there who do not take the best hour of
evenings and occasionally slip away
afternoons in quest of friends to chat
and gossip-with? At weekly gather
ings, dance parties and bright enter
tainments girls chum together, each of
whom usually has some laughable new
experience, of a new flame's admira
tion for her, or takes advice as to how
some disappointing episode will turn
out or ean.be bettered.
From girlhood days to ' young wo
manhood's realm, bosom friends cling
closely and some too intimately,
claiming a control over confiding ones
that amounts to fascination. What
they do not And out from these un
wise confidants is not worth knowing,
let alone keeping their secrets intact.
Girls are at times drawn to one an
other In friendship; if they make good
headway, being anxious to see more of
each other, the ways as well as the go
ing, about of one often yield to the oth
er in uncontrollable will power.
On the start of their acquaintance
they are far and apart from some oth
er, only on speaking terms until the ice
of reserve is melted. Then it does not.
take long for a flame of devotion to
spring up and at some unlucky oppor
tunity they pour out all of the pent up
wrongs they fancy are theirs, feeling
sure and relieved that the burden had
been cast into a friend's bosom which
beats only with pure sympathy for
their unhappy lot.
Here comes the old, old saying: "She
told a friend of hers all about so-and-so.,
, That friend ; let her own friends
into the 6dd secret. Kach promised it
should not be repeated, never to go
farther. But I overheard it in a run
about fashion, put thi3 and. that to
gether, and now I could boldly con
front her with' the whole story in a
nutshell."
Girls whose hearts are most liable to
err in this unwise choice of friends are
to.be found by the score everywhere
and any place. They are mostly good
dispositioned girls, of affectionate na
tures, who are lonely and whose wish
is to find just such resourceful friends
who Will drive dull care away; those
who mone will' put his arms about and
do so many obliging things for. - It
nevet enters Lthe ' mind . of the woman
who casts her burden on the wrong
friend whether it is wise or bound to
end in the bitterest feud between them
some day.
It is only a brave woman whose
good common sense is the means of
rescuing her from the peril. The
bosom friend who keeps sacredly all
tabs on other people's business is not
worth this eye-opening about. She is
a paste treasure whom many have
found out. '
It isn't the easiest thing in the world
to find a number of best friends alike,
all disappointing and abusing the pit
iful trust imposed upon them in a
burst of confidence. The really good
friends that the heart should go out
to are not the pretentious, delightful
appearing, brilliant,, push-forward per
sons who infer that it seems as if they
had known you fpr a lifetime, and who
throw out' flattering compliments
whenever you meet.- Girls had better
stay at home and prudently take plen
ty of time to consider wisely the ideals
which they would raise when they
would, go .out. to seek those who have
neither head nor heart for the unwrit
ten ' pathos of others. Making friends
is well enough in its place and when
people are thrown together. Carefully
they should pick their bosom 'friends if
they regard having peace and good
will Instead of getting into -trouble in
the future. G-ladly turn to those you
have . met whom you can learn to love
better, who improve on acquaintance,
who look on the bright side with you
instead of constantly presenting- un
favorable predictions, if you would be
happy..

WHOSE RING WAS
ON HIS FINGER?
Dear Miss Libbey:
I am a girl of 17, keep company with
a young man. I love him; he treats
me with nice respect. One night he
came to my home with a ring on his
finger. I asked whose ring it was. He
said a boy loaned it to him. Do you
suppose he tells the truth? I love him.
He seems to love me too. Do you think
this real love?
B. S.
If there has been nothing said to in
dicate hi3 getting a ring for you, we
must conclude that it was one loaned
to him. Young men like to make good
appearances. In time you should find
find out if he really loves you. Be
sweet, modest and reserved.
ONE LOVES HER,
OTHER DOES NOT
Dear Miss Libbey:
I have corresponded with a young
man 26 years old. I never cared for
him a great deal. He asked me to
marry him two years ago. I never
found love enough for him to marry
him. He is manly, of good habits; no
DAILY TALKS Oil
uju t will make a ?iod husband. I
love another better. He' does not seem
to care for me. Should I wait? Maybe
he will learn to love me as I love him.
Also, he is of good habits, a good
worker. Please advise.
L. I. M.
Delays are dangerous. Waiting for
a man who does not love jou is ex
tremely unwise. If you can love the
good man who loves you and has
proposed marriage, you will act sen
sibly. WHAT OUGHT SHE TO SAY?
Dear Miss Libbey:
Two of us girls are so interested we
ask your advice. What answer is a
girl to give a boy when he asks to see
her home? Should a girl return to her
house with a youth she is not much
acquainted with? Is it proper for a
girl to ask a boy to call again if his
company is desired, after seeing her
home? How ought a girl to express
herself after returning home from an
entertainment with him? Wishing
you may advise very soon. Thanks.
When he asks you to see him
When he. asks to see you home, if
acepting, say, "Yes, thanks!" I don't
advise girls to go out with youths
they are not hardly acquainted wth.
If a boy's company is desired and he
sees her home, a girl, can ask him to
call again. Returning from an enter
tainment, with escort, she may re
mark: "I have enjoyed the evening,
thanks." 11
IS HE TO ANSWER
GIRL'S POSTCARD?
Dear Miss Libbey: r
I am near 17 years old, good looking,
curly hair, brown eyes. Would it be
right for me to reply to girl's post
cards? A girl wrote to me several
times. She is a year older than I am.
Will say "I am almost too young.''
Your answer will be welcomed.
M. D.'
You are quite right in not replying
to girl's postcards when sense tells
yon are too young. She doubtless- does
not expect you to send cards in return.
Plenty of time for girls and youths to
write and enjoy companionship later
on. . . ...
NEW YEAR'S DAY.
It will begin on Wednesday even
ing. September 8th, with an ornate
solemn service in the t Temples and
Synagogues. . The Thursday morning
Service comprises . a more elaborato
form of worship and combines some
vestiges of antique ritual with ex
pressions of human experiences and
feelings true and real for everybody
and at all times.
. The Jewish New Year's1 Festival is
the oldest of all festivals celebrated
in the civilized world. But it is
unique for its significance as well as
for its antiquity. The secular New
Year ' (on January 1st)' "Is a day
of gratifications; men rejoice in what
they have achieved; it is a day for
sordid inventories. The Jewish New
Year's Day, however, is a time for
serious thought on the Meaning of
Life; it evokes pious contemplation
of the difficult and inevasible prob
lem as to right and wrong and its
appeal is not that we should get more
out of practical life but value more
genuinely, imore truthfully, more
morally the life God has entrusted to
us.
Much of the success and failure
of our work depends, not upon our
equipment, but upon our motives.
The Jewish New Year's Day, accord
ingly, is placed by a wise tradition at
the beginning of autumn, when men
enter upon their enterprises and obli
gations with zest and zeal. Just then
they need a right interpretation Of
life and a true measure of Its values.
The antique features of the ritual
of that Day express the aspirations all
men feel equally. The Trumpet Calls,
constituting the central part in the
worship .of that Day are appeals for
the mral stir which men should feel
when they contemplate their experi
ences and seek for re-enforccment of
their hopes. The calls are also an
appeal to the large sense of life. Our
week-day wishes and prayers are self
centered and do not give us a perspec
tive of our relations and obligations
to the community and fellowman,
and of their influence upon us. But
the New Year's Day offers us an oc
casion to re-affirm our respect for and
trust in Providence which is the, or
ganization of all lives into an all
encompassing justice. The Jew com
prehends this as a comfort in the case
of misfortunes and as monition in
the successes he may have. The
function of the New Year's Day is
to establish a moral judgment In our
life and experiences.

CONNECTICUT
SUFFRAGE NEWS
(A. G. Porritt.)
It is exceedingly interesting to learn
'.hat the articles signed Peter Red
."ord, which have been appearing in
newspapers all over the country, are
in reality supplied by an anti-suffrage
organization to which the breweiTj
have been large contributors. Peter
Radford writes as though he were
an honest farmer, and his arguments
might appeal to some men and wo
men who have not "thought much on
the question. But when a' man talks
or writes about the sainted influence
of his mother's gowns and contrasts
the influence of the mother with fu
ture rulers nursing at her breast and
kneeling at her feet, it is always time
to look out. These are the stock
phrases of the man who wishes to
keep the real reasons for his antag
onism to woman suffrage secret and
who, therefore, throws dust in the
eyes of his readers and uses sentimen
tal trash for this purpose.
The "New Republic" which has been
exposing the Peter Radford articles,
says truly enough that "the brewers
who have cause to fear woman suf
frage should be entitled to be heard
against it, just as the railroads for
their good and the good of the peo
ple who invest in them ought, to put
forward their hest arguments for rate
increases." "It is when the propa
ganda is not avowed," continued the
New Republic, "when1 it crops up un
expectedly and half-hiddeta. to be
traced with difficulty to its source that
it assumes a, sinister aspect. When
under th guise of a series of educa
tional articles, readers of rural newspapers-'
are misinformed, and, busi
ness motives put on the finery of mor
ality and sentiment; when appear bear
the name of a respected organization
which is in reality the tool of .busi
ness interests; when the authority of
that name is used to brace a brittle
and dangerous' contention than it is
that public opinion is being poisoned."
Farmers all over the country have
always been the advocates of fair
play for women. In their granges
they give equal right to woman with
the men. -The women are not ex
cluded from the right to help in
choosing the masters and officers of
the granges or even from holding of
fice themselves, and it would be hard
to convince- a woman granger that
her opinion was of no account when
it came to' picking out the right men
l for these places. This being so it is
difficult ,to see why a - line should be
drawn and the women deemed unfit
to help to choose selectmen, repre
sentatives to the legislature or even
congressmen and senators to Wash
ington vor presidents of the United
States. ! . !
Sewer Committee
Lays Out , Ne-w Work
The common council committee on
sewers at its last meeting voted to
recommend to the council the con
struction of the following sewers:

flow Yellow Mill trunk sewer at foot
of Sherman street to be extended 50
feet toward deep water.
A hearing will be held September
20 on the construction of a sewer in
Garfield avenue. No sewer will be
constructed in Cross street. There
is only one house 'on the, street and it
was found that the street ' has never
been accepted -by the city. The city
attorney has been asked to determine
when, if Bond street, was ever ac
cepted by the city. The property
owners ther object to the establish
ment of -an eight-foot building line
and no sewer will be laid until the line
is established.
Claim Society Refuses

of this city to recover a death benefit
alleged to be due and unpaid.
