Wedgewood blue chiffon veils the loose drapery of the tipper part of a coat made of brocaded tissue. Sliver, gold and bronze threads cover the deep rose and dull green surface of this splendid ma terial. The lower half of the gar ment is made of a heavier brocade shadowy silk of gorgeous hue, as the background for large velvet flower motifs and jet embroidery. When iet came in for a revival of its old popularity last year, the mil liners used this trimming cleverly, while the modistes bungled with it. Manufacturers of stuffs fit for royal to have surpassed the efforts of either, for these jet bespangled bro cades and lacefl are by far the rich est and most elaborate of fall trim mings. Creations in black and white are being designed for evening wear In shining ivory satin and trimmings of Jet. Jn the model shown In this sketch the fullness of the hlgh walsted bodice Is confined by a nar row jet girdle. Jet ropea with bead ed tassels hang from the center of the coat. This wrap has several distinctive features, its collar of sable fastens closely about the neck and admits of no V dip at the front. Also It is devoid of the lines ot the former flat fur sailor with wide revers at the front. Close fastening fur pieces, or standing, outrolling collars -will be used instead on winter evening wraps. Sable fur trims the wide, loose cuffs of this coat. If Cherult had designed this wrap he would have cut the material so that it would hang In a straight line from shoulder to hem. CoJlot would have fitted the upper part along the seams of a basque, and allowed the lower skirt to flare at the hem. Paquin might have Insisted that the evening wrap be nothing else than a cape, but Drecoll has made a gar ment wnlch is Independent of his rivals, for his coat bodice admits fullness, and the skirt of the coat ripples at the hem. Its loose lines are practical, for they give room for bouffant draperies oh the gown be neath. A plain, dark silk and chif fon line the elaborate brocaded aklrt of the coat.

She hung far out of the bag, and did not fit In It at all. For Fannie was having a veiy pleasant time, fcjhc was trying to look like Tottie Tabby. One day she had carried Tottie home in a basket, and sho had looked so small and pretty that Fannie had never for gotten. She thought perhaps that It had been the basket that had made Tottie look so adoiable. fa'o she got out the neaiest thine to It, the straw suitcase, and climbed into it. But whereas Tottie had fitted into the basket which Fannie carried on her arm with case, poor Fannie over flowed the bag, and doubted If even her own big mother could p!ck her up. Fannie hung her bic paws over the edge and sighed My goodness gracious how sad she did look! The knitted cap made her face longer than ever, and bv the time two oig tears, enough to drown a good.fiizod fly, had rolled out of her eyes, bhe was positiev funny: Just at that moment Mr. Hicks came into room. Now this dog family lived very near to the Tah biep. and were very friendly with them. When Mrs. Hicks saw Fannie looking so sad. she wanted to smile at lirst Fannie did look so torrihl mournful.

An old lady and an old gentleman, swaying unsteadily at every jerk of the car, made their way down th6 aisle of a Fourteenth street car this morning to go out the front door at New York 4 crtue. They had ridden from U street with out seats, although tne car wa3 full of able bodied men and women, untlred by a day's work, who complacently sat while the old lady bobbed about In the aisle as the car curve'd around Thomas circle. Three giggling girls, and one young woman resplendent in the 'latest" re galfa, came in behind the old couple and wero given seats at once by two gallant young sports and one middle aged man" with a roving eye. But the elderly woman continued to wave unsteadily abo'ut iri the aisle. She was old, and withered, and evidently no one wanted either Iter thanks ot her good will. The old gentleman made a brave showing when the car Went around Thomas circle, but he was un able to cope with the jerks which nearly threw him at every street corner. The other people who were standing also suffered from the mUch buffeted couple, but the people In the seats did not seem to care. Street car riding Is a more dangerous pastime, than it was a few years ago. The huge cars, heavily laden, even when brought to a stop by an air brake, have a tendency to dislodge all of that matter Inside the car which is not at tached firmly to the car Itself. Only by the most Intent listening for the bells which are the command to atop and start the car and by exercis ing no small amount of agility in bal ancing oneself, can one stand in a moving street car. But the ears or age are not sharp, and the confusion of the crowded car and the constant watching out for one's stopping place nrove a task, for even young folks. The young girl does not stand well in tne car because she la careless, and does not try, for she knows that if she bumps about enough some one will give her a seat. The elderly people do their best, but It doesn't seem to get theru any place. And now we near the Core ot the trouble. A young man recently wrote to the paper complaining that he never re ceived any thanks from the young women to whom he gave his seat. The trouble seems to He right here. Men get up and give the wrong people their much-loved seats! If a little more judgment and less silly and useless sen timentality were tfted about giving up seats the better It would be for all. Do men give up their seats, not from a feeling of real concern for that per son for whom the relinquish them, but for the showing they will make? Sh-u-u-u-u-u-flh! It is easy enough to tell old age, and the man who is not near-sighted can tell whether or not a women needs a seat. The old people and tho women with tired eyes and drawn mouths and many bundles are pretty safe guesses. Book Review TWICE BOIIN MEN IN AMERICA. Bv Harriot Earhart Monroe. Illustrated. Philadelphia.

AdvL ,,,,'' '' T MF Beware of Wood Alcohol in T oilet Preparations By DR. LEONARD A. B., M. A., 31. IF the blind lead the blind both shall fall Into the ditch. "Who Is so deaf or so blind as he That wilirully will neither hear nor see? If harpers,' "bean ty doctors, hairdressers, painters, gla ziers, furniture polishers, printers, lithographers, leather workers, wood workers, varnlshera'and launderers. who persist in using bay rum, varnish and other forms df wood alcohol, could take this text from St. Matthew to heart, there would be less actual blindness In the world, and fewer shortcomings In those who lead you on to blindness. So dangerous has the menace of blindness from wood alcohol become that Drs. II. H, Tyson and M. J. Schoen- fberg of New Tork devoted a lot of vcstlgate these gathering clouds against human eyesight Their researches carry a warning to mdre than S.Ofo.OdO workers and barbers. Willful ignorance is for the most vicious ct all crimes. It threatens not only the health, strength and endtirnnco of individuals, but of whole races. The obstinate neglect by both physicians and the employes of photographers, dyers, chemists, gold and stiver plater, tin and brass workers, and the others already named, is equal to their1 ignorance of the dangers of wood alcohol.' Over 100 instances ot blindness and al most as many deaths occurred last year from the fumes of wood alcohol, chemi cally known as methyl alcohol and Co lumbian spirits. The latter Is positively1 as poisonous, when refined, as when ac companied by the unpleasant odor. Since the effects of the vapors upon the human eye are duplicated on the dog's, cats's, rabblts's and guinea pig's eyes, it occurred to the New York sa vants that tho men who can 'but' will not learn of Columbian spirits and wood alcohol's deadly effects, might be taught a dramatic lesson if these experiments were carried out. Gathering Evidence By Tests. They built a wooden box aboUt twelve inches wide, twenty Inches Ion- and thirty inches deep. At each end there was an opening; half an inch wide. Air passed out through a mica valve at one end, while rubber tubing pro jected from the other end through which air could enter. A glass slide completed the roof of the box. A little dog, rabbit or guinea pig was then placed In the box and two ounces of Columbian spirits were put upon a sponge on the box. In an hour the box would be opened and the ani mal examined. It was usually drunk from the fumes. Day by day from two to five ounces of Wood alcohol was soaked into the sponge and the animal kept in the box for an hour each day. Dogs were usual ly "dead drunk" and in a dying condi tion after two or three such days, but if kept In the air two days they were as well and lively as usual. Two days more of the poison, after two weeks or so Of freedom, caused the death of the dog. Usually four such intervals of ex posure of an hour for two days caused either death or blindness to rabbits, dogs and other animals. Certainly no one dares think that thc human animal is any more resistant to its fumes than the other creatures of God. Causes Many Other Ills. To show, however, once for all and conclusively that the manufacturers of Columbian spirits and other alleged "re fined" forms of wood alcohol have no ground to stand on, and that employers who allow their workers to use it are committing a crime, a monkey In per fect health was placed In a larger wooden box, upon the sides of which three ounces of wood alcohol were sprayed. An hour In the box had no effect. Three other exposures to Its fumes, spread over three weeks, caused the death of the monkey. Moreover, when the v"apor of wood al cohol was allowed only for a brief period upon animals without causing their death It was found to produce not only blindness, but destruction of red blood and tissue degenerations, especial ly of the spinal cord. Many alleged instances of "uric acid." "rheumatism," and other figments of easy-going medical Imaginations, when found in the two and more million of wcrkers in occupations which use "hair tonics," face washes, bay rums, polishes, varnishes, dyes, and chemicals arc real ly examples of the poisonous effects of the various forms of methyl alcohol.
