RANN THE FALL SKIRT THE fall skirt Is a neat garment which looks a good deal like the spring skirt, but costs more, owing to the Kuropan war, which has caused a great scarcity of everything except campaign bunk. The fall skirt was gotten up last February In the heart of Paris, France, and sent over here to be sold to women who do not care to look like any of their neighbors. To the dull and unpractlced eye of man It Is hard to tell a new full skirt of the 1017 mod el from the one his wife wore twice In the early spring and discarded aft er making the horrifying discovery that It was three-quarters of an inch too long to be strictly au fait.

Is nothing more depressing than a nw skirt which is only 75 per cent &u fait and folds carelessly about both! tinkles, instead of tilting back rakish-1 ily and blinding the Innocent bystand-l r In both eyes. Great care has been taken, accord ing to the fashion periodicals, to muke the fall skirt so long that It can be worn to church with perfect propriety. By actual measurement It will reach to the top of a 12-lnch boot, which will prevent anybodyfrora tripping on It In fact, it Is estimated that It Is going to be harder to trip over one of the new fall skirts than It Is to es cape the strident voice of the enfe pi ano player. The fall skirt will be made of any thing that costs mcro than it did last winter, but will not be guaranteed against defects of workmanship or material. Stripes wlU be worn a great fdtal by women who would look better in some solid, neutral tint like black taffeta.

June Mathis wrote the senarcio for "The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse." DID YOU DREAM OF FIRE? N KEGAItD to dreams about Are the mystics are not entirely agreed. I They alf seem to agree that simply to dream of a Are Is a favorable omen, but some s-f them attach unfavorable meanings to different circumstances which may arise in connection with the dream fire. Many of them predict that if you dream of a conflagration in which your house or your place of business Is burned down, you will have many business troubles, but will come through them all right. Others say that if you see a fire In which the burning houses have fallen down it Is a most favorable omen and not so good a one if the houses still stand. The consensus of opinion is that to see any fire and not get burned by it denotes health, fortune and happiness. To burn yourself In your dreams is not a favorable progdostlcaUon, but to dream that you touch the fire and are not burned, a most favorable one. Most authorities agree that while to dream of fire Is a promise of good luck. It also moans that you are likely to have a quarrel with a friend, though some declare that you must see the fire start suddenly to be sure of a quarrel, and all agree that the dispute will be over a trifle. If you extinguish the fire, a surprise Is In store for you. To see a sparkling fire on a hearth or In n stove, denotes plenty of money. If a woman builds a fire without any trouble, she will be happy and have many children. If she has difficulty In making the fire burn, the omen Is the reverse. The scientists regard the fire dream simply as a reminiscence from our nursery days when we were warned not to play with matches and schedule this dream as one of the typical or standard ones. As the scientists don't enUrely agree with the mystics, and the mystics don't entirely agree among themselves with regard to the significance of dream fire, it would seem to be a case where each of the rest of us was entitled to his own opinion.

There were many thousands of boys and girls who produced more than . $50 each" in what would other wise have been, idle time, and thou sands of acres of land that would have lain idle If it had not been cultivated by the boys and girls yielded more than $5U0 an acre. The educational value to the chil dren was far greater than the value of the food products. That value in cluded health, phj-sieal vigor, habits of Industry, knowledge of plant life and of the phenomena and forces of na ture, and the beginning of the under standing of the fundamental moral principle that every one should gladly contribute to his own support by his own labor.

Declaring the automobile has made the billboard a countrywide problem, E. T. Hartman of Boston, member of the Massachusetts Civic league, ad dressing a meeting of the American Civic association, said that there Is no bet law or method for dealing with the problem presented by the de facement of both the city and the country by outdoor advertising. The public, he said, can bring reme dies to bear when it chooses to make the effort. He suggested that one ef fective method would be to withhold patronage from persons and firms em- ploying this method of publicity, and said this would settle the whole prob lem in a year.

He approached liallarat, the great gold mining city In the Australian colony of Victoria by imans of a broad avenue, some fiftten miles long, lined on either side by trets, which are flourishing, and that bid ere long to form a sort of foliage domed roof for the entire thoroughfare. Each tree, planted within the last three or four years, and there are about rive thousand of them, com memorates a liallarat boy who gave his life for the empire at the front in France, on the peuinsula of (lul llpoll and In Palestine.

SEEMS LIKE TOY RAILWAY Smallest Line In the World Is In the North of England, in Cumber, land County. American visitors to Europe, on landing at Liverpool or Southampton, are at once struck by the small sire of British locomotives as compared with the mighty machines in American railway operation. Their astonish ment is. however, soon supplemented by admiration for the excellent run ning made on the English main lines, but If one's Itinerary takes him into the lake-lands and high-lands of Cum berland, says Railway and Locomotive Engineering, he will there find an in dependent little line which is said to be "the smallest public railway In the world." This line Is known as the Eskdale railway, and Is 7 miles in length. The rail gauge Is one of 15 Inches only. It Is leased to a London com pany Narrow Gauge Railways, Lim ited.
