I' i IpI FOUR ycflrsno iodav in a tiny shop, with hut two simll fitting rooms, at 1U2G St., the Wells' Corset Store was founded. But 1 8 months later the success of the individualized service, that distinguishes this establishment, rendered it necessary to seek larger quarters, and the present big establishment at 1331 G street, was secured. It is with keen appreciation that I thank the more than nine thousand registered customers whu have made this suc cess possible. At first Miss Wells featured but one particular brand of front lace corset. It was soon found that there was an insistent de mand for a greater variety of models. Vith the nc-12 quarters, new brands and new models in both front and back lace corsets were introduced. Today the Wells' Corset Store is the most completely equipped and stocked corset es tablishment south of Ncto York. The entire establishment is under the personal supervision of Miss Wells, who designs models and is an expert in the art of cor rectly fitting corsets. Old friends are invited to drop in on us during Anniversary Week, and we are always pleased to toe come new ones. Both Front and Back Lace Corsets $2.50 to H5 1IRS. WILLIAM JI.

Mrs. Jaques' sis ter, Mrs. Robinson, wife of tho Hon. a Stanley Robinson. M. C.

Mrs. Jaques Is deeply engrossed In Red Cross work and other wartime activities and Is. moreover, very much taken up with her two sons, William and David. They are both splendid youngsters and give promise of being worthy sons of a distinguished father. They expect to follow in his footsteps in the matter of a career also, and both boys have appointments to the Naval Academy.

As for Miss Ogdm Jones, in her case the wish was probably father to the thought that sh was going overseas. She is most anxious to go, but la under age. and consequently has dono what she considers the next bcs( thing, gone into tho big military hos pital at Fox Hills, N. Y. You know she took a course. In nursing last year at Johns Hopkins University Hos pital It Is partly, to be near her daughter and partly on account of Mr, JTartlett's work that the Bartletts are arranging to stay In New York. Mr. Bartlett, president of the National Sculpture Society, has been commis sioned by the Secretary of the Treasury to alter the statue of Germania on the Custom House in New York Into one representing Bclclum. The casque Is to J be chanced from that of a Teutonic vaucyr, one or the maidens or rvorse1 mythologr,who carried the souls of the dead to Valhala, Into the headdress of tho Belgian goddess of liberty. The Hohenzollem eagle, the black one, which' now spreads Its wing across the front of the statne, will be cut off and the Hon of Belgium will b.e substituted. The light hand, which' holds the branch of a tree represnUng German victory will ware a bronze torch of victory In the future. And the shield, which bears the name "Kiel," the hiding place of the German fleet since the battle of Jutland, will In future bear the name "Antwerp." All Oils transformation Mr. Bartlett promises to accomplish without hurting the statue and with due regard for the Interests and feelings of the sculptor. I He. Albert Jaegers, was asked to make the change and refused to do it Mr. Jaegers Is an American citizen, bat was r-efore the war a prominent member of various German societies; and he was decorated by the Kaiser and created a Knight of the Red Eagle of Prussia when a replica of his statue of Baron von Steuben was presented to the Kaiser by Congress. time thH had practically given up hope. and. of course, they would have been notified If there was any news, and--but he went.
