THE MEDINA SENTINEL.. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1914.
T New Models Show Glittering Jet, Paiiletes and Rhinestones The descent of the stupendous war cloud which has enveloped Europe was bo swift and all enveloping that every one was taken on surprise. Paris was full of buyers from all the great American retail and wholesale houses, completing their purchases for the winter. The order for them to leave within four days or to be detained for an indefinite period was startling in the extreme, especially as ' trunks would not be transported. It was a A Dress of Broadcloth and Satin Hav In; the New Short Basque and Smartly Scalloped Tunic case of make or break with many cf them and it immediately became a bat tie of wits, for no one desired to leave without their purchases, and interest ing stories are told of the tenacity 'nnd ingenuity displayed. One enterprising New York dress, maker from the regions of Fifth Ave nue persuaded her party of four to discard all but the absolute necessi ties and carry some of her models in their hand-grips. She also bought a number of very personal looking pieces of hand-luggage and filled them as well. Imagine their con sternataon when at the station the next morning at six o'clock there were l,wo pieces of baggage ahead of them and the officials refused to take any more. However, with a judicious tip hero and there, they were at last checked; but instead of being put on the tram for London, they were acci dentally placed on the train for Liege Madam sank back and fanned her self until her reason returned to her and then she concluded that as they were plainly marked London she would hope that they would get there, and they did. yuite different was the spirit of London. The horrors of war had not touched it in the same way it had Itns. Ia Paris an entire establish ment was closed in the morning, be eause the husband or brother of an omp'oye had gone to the front, only to open again in the afternoon, while ver all brooded a suspense not at the time felt in London, where enthusi asm reigned. In London, the children formed into little regiments and marched in the streets, with sticks for gons and tin-pans for drums, and the authorities, realizing the contag ion of .pontaneous enthusiasm, en deavored to let them go their way1 un checked. But to return to clothes. Some of these garments brought back with such difficulty have at last reached us, and a few very few, open ings are the consequence. As long as the uncertainty of this conflict contin ues each importation may be the last for some time, and therefore fs of double, interest The scintillating effect of jet pail lettcii' and rhines'tbnes are supreme in evenng gowns and are used to trim the more taid garments for every, day wear, For Instance a charming afternoon, dress . of black chiffon , vel vet had a sash of jet which crossed in front and tied low in the back. - The jet was so closely and beautiffully .ap plied that the sash seemed as suppl as the velvet itself instead of being heavy and unwieldy as the jetted fabrics of other days. Another stunning costume was made with a flaring lower skirt, as well as the body of the jacket, of this jetted material. The sleeves and tunic were of velvet. The wide vel vet collar had a band of fitch around it. Cloth of gold and silver are also used extensively. A wonderful gown of b'ack satin had a tunic of cloth of gold and a wide satin girdle, or sash of black satin, swathed the waist, the ends being tied in a careless bow at the back of the left hip in the midst of which nestled a bright red rose. Another wonderful costume, in part like an Egyptian dancing girl's cos tume, the bodice like a coat of mail, had a plain, but not tight-fitting wai t of steel and gold paillettes, reminding one of the wonderful old steel, armors, inlaid and embossed so beautifully with gold. The waist reached to the widest point of the hips, where the Egypt'an effect of the costume commenced in , a clinging foundation skirt of white.over which hung a tunic of gold lace. Strands of heavy, glossy jet were looped from the waist and hung low, making the tunic swing and sway in a peculiar Oriental manner. Offsetting this Oriental note a queer narrow train, edged with a band of fur, was so arranged that in the event of dancing it could be easily caught up and mingled with the under-draperies in an unnoticeable manner. 'The skirts of tailored suits and dresses are worn full short, just below the shoe-tops being considered quite a conservative length. The plain skirts are fuller, though many have their width confined by a band of fur just above the hem, making the part of the skirt showing below quite like a ruffle. The cape effect continues in its pop ularity according to these Paris models, for coats with cape effects in the back and quaint shoulder capes were seen on some of the smartest garments. A costume in red velvet was a strong reminder of the scarlet robe of a cardinal with its round shoulder capes edged with beaver. A five-inch strip of this same fur banded the skirt above the hem Beaver, fitch, Persian lamb, and kol insky, which is Russian pole-cat and resembles sable in color, are the furs which will be widely used. Tailless ermine is also used. A stunning opera cloak of geranium red velvet had an immense collar of pure white ermine, The combination of fabrics contin ues to be a strong style note and in the first costume illustrated is shown around the lower edge and bound with black braid, while the narrow lower skirt is of the black satn. The smartly tailored suit illustra ted ' of dark green repp and shows the newest line of jacket and skru The standing velvet collar of he jacket is topped by the new high collar of the blouse, wheh is practically a straight piece of cloth with a straight frill around the top. On some of the more extreme waists this collar frill comes up about the face like a great white calla lily. h6meryillev LITCHFIELD (Jr. ! ,r f L$ McCitL A Suit Showing the New Lines of Coat and Skirt for Fall and Win ter Wear ,r .

Strong. She was born April 9, 1877, and died Aug. 24, 1914. She attended he public schools of her na tive town until she went to Oberlin, where she completed a four years' ac- edemic course. Afterward she taught several terms in the public schools, and always was a student and great reader. On May 3, 1914, she was married to Howard E. White, and went at once to live in her husband's home in Litch field, 0. There he found kind neigh bors, and made many warm friends, by whom she will be sorely missed. At an early age she united wih the Cong. Church of Huntsburg, and after her removal to Lichfield she and her husband became members of the Cong. Church there. She was ever a faithful attendant and worker in the church, W. C. T. U. and C. E., and a teacher for many years in the Sunday school. She held the office of church clerk, and her husband was a deacon. Her death came suddenly without a moment's warning. She was seeming- y enjoying vigorous and robust health. While stooping over to pick up a garment she fell forward. Mrs, Julia Evans, her aunt, who was vis iting her, called to her husband. He came and laid her on a bed, but life was extinct. She was gone without a word. The. doctor summoned said death was instantaneous, and due to heart disease. Mrs. White's funeral was conducted by her pastor, Rev. Steele, in her home, and her body was brought to Huntsburg for burial be side her mother. Friends gathered at the grave, where the burial service was read, and comforting words spok en by the pastor of her old home church, Rev. T. P. Thomas. Mis. White was industrious, and had a cheery word and imile for every one. Her favorite hymn was "Sun shine in My Soul." Her husband and little daughter Edna, aged 7: her father, 0. B. Strong, and, brothers George and Rhea, and sister, Mrs, John S. White, are left to mourn her loss. Mrs. Harry Clouse of Lodi visited at Elias Hanes' Friday, and Saturday, Amos Newton, wife and son of Cleveland spent several days with his uncle, A.. G. Newton. . F. P. Rumbaugh is onthe sick list, James Baldwin and family moyed in Wm. Barone's i house Thursday. Lawrence Jeffrey and wife have gone to housekeeping in the, house they vacated. School commenced today, Monday, with a good attendance. Miss Maggie Park spent a week with friends in Spencer. - , Mrs. Sam Eshelman, who has been quite sick, is improving. CUTTING ENSILAGE CORN There is a tendency among many farmers to cut corn for ensilage be fore the corn is sufficiently mature. Corn is at its best for silage when the kernels are well dented and the upper leaves of the stalk are still irreen. Sometimes on account of 9 drought, most of the lower leaves will be dry before the grains have dented. In such cases it is much bet ter to allow the kernels to mature sufficiently than to cut the corn too soon, it is necessary tnat tne siiage be moist enough to pack well in the silo, and, if the corn stalks and leaves are rather dry when the kernels are properly matured for silage making, the corn should be wet before it is run through the silage cutter. It is true the silage may be more palat able if the corn is cut while the Stalks and leave's are green, but the feeding value of the silage may be increased from 10 to 20 per cent by allowing the corn to stand in the field one week, ness depends on ,th poultryman's knowledge and on suitable equipment The teaching of poultry raising , , in the Extension Schools is heartily en dorsed by both of the poultry associa tions of the state and should result in a general improvement in the quality of and an increase in the quantity of poultry and eggs produced V in the state.. ... , .; .
