Russian Sunflower Crop.
The sunflower crop is one cf th<
most profitable harvested in Russia
A good crop is worth, as it stands ii
the field, $-5 an acre. The seeds ar<
sold by the farmer for from fifty t<
seventy-five cents a pound; then th<
merchants salt them and retail then
for $1.50 a pound. At every streel
crossing in Russian provincial cities
are stands and peddlers with baskets
selling to the passers-by the saltec
product of the sunflower, whici
forms a favorite food.

York City.?The coat that
suggests Empire lines is a very general
and well deserved favorite, for
while that style is not always desirable
when pushed to an extreme, it
makes exceedingly attractive outer
garments and is highly to be com;
mended. This one shows certain
modifications that render it adapted
' to modern needs and is suited to a
great variety of materials. As illus|
trated it is made of black taffeta, the
yoko and cuffs being embroidered
with black silk, while the little vest
is of black and white material, but
: plain material can be used throughout,

j cut and finished for the purpose,
r make an exceedingly attractive feature
but are not obligatory as any
other form of closing that may be
j preferred can be employed without
cliangiug the essential characteristics
of the coat.
The coat is made with the yoke,
the front edges of which are faced
to give tne vest eneci, ana wun iue
fronts and barks of the full portions.
The lower edge of the yoke Is finished
with a band of the material

While speaking of the new fall colors
one must not forget the leather

There is tan which is the most popular

and there is a pale suede leather.
The skirt that is plaited or tucked
in various ways is constantly growing
in favor and may fairly be said to
be the most fashionable at the present
time. This one is designed for
young girls and is treated after a
quite novel manner while it can be
worn either with or without the

"Grace" means He died for our P
