up in the South in late years have also
attracted my attention. Boanoke,

THE CABBAGE SALAD HAD FTTJJ.
In the higher grades of the Passaio
(N. J.) public schools cooking is
taught. The other day twenty young
ladies in one of the schools set out
under the guidance of a teacher to
make cabbage salad, and they made it.
Then with the valor of knights of old
or the courage of a score of Jeanne
d'Arcs they did what few other people
on earth would dare to do they ate
their own salads.
But that was not all. As soon as
they had disposed of the salads, the
salads started in to dispose of them.
In a few minutes there were twenty
young ladies in that class looking ap
pealingly towards the oooking teacher,
while their salad-satiated appetites
were tying themselves up in sailor
knots. None of them was killed by
the salad, but they all suffered an

Miss Antoinette Humphreys, a
pi etty young woman of Mount Auburn,
Cincinnati, is a member of the mili
tary staff of Governor MaoCorkle, of
West Virginia. She is a full-fledged
colonel, and the only woman in the
country thus honored.
Miss Humphreys is a daughter of
Albert Humphreys, of 1034 McMillan
street, who is a member of the firm of
Walker & Humphreys.
Early last May she took part in two
presentations of "The Mikado" in
Charleston, W. Va. It was for the
benefit of the Old Women's Home, in

charity to the old ladies. The "some

the West Virginia militia, whioh the

Miss Humphreys kept the commis
sion a secret until a few days ago,
when she showed the document to a
few intimate friends.
"I wonder if the Governor will ever
call me out," she said, laughingly.

years old, is a graduate of the College

STRAIGHT VS. CUBIT HAIR.
Heavy straight hair cannot always
be dressed becomingly, save in braids,
but the owner of- feathery, curly
tresses can generally make the best of
them. When the waviness, is not
natural, but acquired, care must be
taken lest the pins and tongs used in
the process injure tho hair at the
roots, especially at 'the top of the
head, where a bald place is enough to

Every one wears her grandmother's
tortoise-shell comb or one just as
nearly like it as she can buy. One or
two fortunate individuals whose grand
mothers considerately left broad,
carved ivory combs are wearing them
with charming effect. They were in

paniments the ivory comb is the pret
tiest thing one can wear.
Young women with Madonna-like
faces, and young women who labor
nnder the delusion that they have
Madonna-like faces, part their hair,
wave it slightly, draw it low over
their ears and knot it at the nape of
their necks. Then they clasp a slen

silver around their heads so that the
hair puffs very slightly on each side of
it, and are truly saint-like in their
look. One clever yonng person whose
dark hair was adapted to display a
slender silver band, and did not pos
sess one, sewed artificial violets close

hair with that. Her low-necked gown
was outlined with violets and the ef

Girls whose grandmothers left no

Every now and then somebody turns
up with remarks about the princess
gown. Of course it's pretty, like
everything else, just when it is pretty.
It has one especial advantage over
dresses in two or more pieces, in that
it doesn't block the body out into top
and bottom sections. Other things
bring equal, it is more artistic to treat
the figure as a whole than to dress it
in divisions, bnt not all dressmakers
rise to the conceptions. Here are two

One is of green and gold mixed

eries. Two gold buttons accent the
lower point on the left side. The
waist is close-fitting, with a green vel

and satin bows.
The other is of yellow brown cloth,
with tcnio caught np on the left side
and laid in folds behind. The corsage
has a Swiss belt and a double-breasted
front, with large revers andbig velvet
buttons. There goes with it a brown
capote, with wings and velvet roses.
A PRETTY FASHION.
A pretty fashion, the idoa for which
seems to be taken from the calyx of a
flower, is seen in the pointed bodices
of cloth, with long cuffs, cut also in
points, above whioh the velvet or silk
material blooms forth, so to speak, in
large1 puffs for the sleeves and a full
gathered corsage for the body. Felix
seems especially fond of this effect
lately, and has used the idea on both
skirts and waists. A charming exam
ple of this method of cutting a gown
is in leaf-green cloth, with the skirt
and waist cut en princesse to the bust,
where the cloth terminates in six
points, three in front and three be
hind. Above this is a dark purple
velvet waist slightly gathered on the
shoulders and finished with a velvet
stock and a tiny ruche of fine point de
Venise a pretty sheathing for the
"flower-like head" of a young girl.
The sleeves are treated in the same
way. A very deep cuff of the cloth is
cut in points, the cloth of the bodice
and that of the sleeves reaching to
about the same height; that is, the
points of both sleeves and bodice be
ing on a line with each other.
ALL IN THIS WAY BLACK IS WORN.
There are a good many persons who
do not think black becoming, bnt thin
is entirely owing to the way they wear
it. Dead black, enlivened by a color,
is suitable for any person of any age
or condition. Collar, cuffs, a vest or

material, will improve any black dress
and always looks pretty.

NEW PNEUMATIC SHOE SOLE.
Deliered to Be the Attainment of the
Ideal for Sprinters.
A pneumatic shoe, the sole of which
contains a cushion of air, has been pat
ented. The shoe Is adapted for the use
of athletes and pedestrians In running,
jumping, cycling and In the gymnas
ium, doing away entirely with plates
and spikes, and preventing slipping
and tearing up of the track. A further
object of the Improved sole is to re
lieve the disadvantages of tender feet
As the pneumatic sole provides an easy
cushion for the foot, owing to the posi
tion of the air chamber therein, burn
ing of the soles of the feet is obviated.
And it materialy increases the speed In
running and jumping.

We toast bread not merely to brown

It to give it a better flavor. If the
Mice be thick and carelessly exposed
to a blazing tire, tbe outside is black
ened and made into charcoal before
tbe heat can reach the inside.
The moisture is only heated, not
evaporated, and makes the inside
doughy or clammy; and butter, when

the form ot oil, and the result is one
of tbe most indigestible compounds
The correct way is to have the
bread stale and cut into thin uniform

browing it Such toast, moistened
with water or milk, may be easily
