Fascinatingly youthful and fetching
or slender figures are the new tail ored costumes, with a short, straight hung skirt and a coat cut on straight sack lines, with ordinary coat sleeves and a severe flat coiiar finish. Made of the dull hued woolens that are in favor, of velvet and rich silk, they are equally swagger, and serve alike for morning or for afternoon wear. The bat only is changed to suit the .time of day. While the outside Is kept quiet in color, the lining of such a coat may be as gay as desired., Small Hats For Fall There is no gainsaying the popular ity of the small hat for general wear. When It fits the head properly it fills satisfactorily, without doubt, the first office of a hat, because It really covers and protects. Most of the fashionable Bhapes also afford some shade for the eyes, although there are many which set close to the fore head. These are chic and pretty, but sacrifice comfort for the eyes. In a measure, to a certain dash and "go" in poise and style. The poke bonnet shapes, ranging from the real bonnet of 1830 to merely a hint of the type, has been a strong Influence in the season. The turban and bonnet ideas have been combined and some entire ly new models like the Alpine hat with folded over crown give a wide range of choice to the seeker for something becoming. The hats shown here illustrate three entirely different types—all practical and all pretty. They are made on buckram frames, covered with silk, satin or velvet, and their staple materials are used in the trim mings. The Alpine hat is of black .velvet with band of bright green, laid in narrow and shallow plaits. A silk cord, with knot and tassel, and a nar- STICK TO SHORT SKIRTS New Tailored Costumes Are Fascinat ingly Youthful and Fetching on Slender Figures. Many short skirts still show the flat, plain back breadth, but women who prefer a change order their new tailored skirts made with two or three small, flat plaits arranged in the mid dle of the back. A recent skirt show ing this back effect has the front made in three tiers, each one edged with narrow fringe made of the ma terial, a soft ratine, cut in slender strands. The large, flat collar of the accompanying coat is trimmed to match. New Dress Box. There are shirtwaist boxes galore, Innumerable dress chests and many improvised receptacles for use in the woman's room, but the latest novelty Is the result of an ingenious brain which conceived the posibilitles of hav ing a dress box, full length, to match the hardwood floor in her room. A cheap frame was constructed of pine, lined throughout with white oil cloth. the edge glued on the outside. This was covered with linoleum, a clever Imitation of oak in two shades. It was glued to the outside and the raw edges were covered with tan leather strips, held in place with brass studs. The hinges and lock were of brass. Two stout straps were tacked to the inside of the lid, making a good receptacle for holding two parasols, says an exchange. Ball-bearing casters completed the dress box and the owner paid much less for this treasure than a fancy one would cost at any store. The Age of the Fork. Knives and spoons are of very great antiquity, but the use of the fork is really, comparatively speaking, modern. Indispensable as these adjuncts of the table may now appear, their use bad not become at all general at the beginning of the eighteenth cen turf. row silk finishing braid complete the decoration. Silk cord and fancy silk finishing braids are growing in favor on two quite distinct types of hats, the street hat and the evening cap. For the for mer silk cords In black or the darker colors and for the latter, gold, silver and light colored cords provide a charming finish. Gold and silver lace, with fur, show the influence of the coronation more strongly than any other new feature fn millinery. In gowns and coats military buttons are more in evidence than for many sea sons, and cords are "a part of the play" on many gowns. All of the hats shown here are suit able for black or for the rich colors which usher in the winter bronze and purplish reds, deep browns, all shades of purple, deep clear blues and dull dark greens are the colors for ordi nary wear. There are some rather startling and vivid tints in plain broadcloth, like old gold, delft blue, and light rose color, for cloth gowns designed for high occasions. Such gown? require millinery designed es pecially to be worn with them, or the big black velvet hat with trimming of showy white ostrich or marabout may be worn with their usual colors. CHILD'S ORESS. Striped zephyrs makes up very well in this style. The material Is ar ranged in one wide box-pleat each side back and front, and is set to a square yoke, in which the stripes run horizontally. The turn up cuffs and collar are of white lawn, Hemstitched at the edge. A band of the material is worn just below the waist-line. Material required: 2 yards 41) Inches wioc Garnet Revival. Every little while sees a revival of some old-fashioned gem or style and now it is the garnet that women are wearing once more. Many forms it takes—and one may wear this pretty red stone in many ways. The finest garnets are the Bohemian variety, and one may have them in rings, in necklaces, in pendants or wear them in brooches. There are barpins, too, of garnets, and collar pins, slides and buckles for the belt Use Finer Thread. Instead of using forty or fifty thread when sewing calicoes, etc., on the machine use sixty or seventy and it will look better and wear better. The two threads give sufficient strength and the finer thread imbeds itself in the material and becomes almost like a part of it, while the coarse thread, being raised above the surface, is subjected to more wear. THE DENISON REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 2, 1912. THE' TWO GREAT ISSUES ARE PRESERVATION OF GOVERNMENT AND CONTINUANCE OF PROSPERITY. "I cannot think that the Amer ican people, after the scrutiny and education of a three months' campaign, during which they will be able to see through the fog of misrepresentation and demagoguery, will fail to recog nize that the two great issues which are, first, whether we shall retain, on a sound and per manent basis, our popular con stitutional government, with the independence of the judiciary as a necessary key to the preserva tion of those liberties that are the inheritance of 1,000 years, and, second, whethher we shall welcome prosperity which is just at our door by maintaining our present economic business basis and by the encouragement of business expansion and prog ress through legitimate use of capital."—From President Taft Speech Accepting the Republic an Nomination. PROSPERITY THE ISSUE It is not a primary question with The Journal as to what ticket or what men are likely to win the election contests of this year. The Journal believes President Taft should be re tained for a second term. It believes he is entitled to the earnest support of Republicans. It believes the Re publican party has rendered and can yet render the best service to the country of any party heretofore or now in existence. The United States has a record of progress covering the past fifty years unmatched by any oth er country. The record has been made under the ruling power of the Republican party. This is not saying the Republican party is responsible for every good thing, but it is saying the Republican party has not been se riously in the way of good things. While the party is not responsible for every good thing, at the same time it is not responsible for all the bad [things. The weighty problems in the past have been met and overcome. Many of these problems are now out of mind, even the problem of saving the union and the associated problem of preserving the financial integrity of the country. The party has ad hered to the policy of protecting home industries, and the growth of these industries has. made the country rich. There has been phenomenal trans- formation, and men have taken wrong ful advantage of unexampled oppor tunities. Whatever has been done to correct abuses has been done under the leadership of the Republican party. It has always been a party of progress—never a reactionary party, The tendency of the time is to exag gerate evils and minimize good works. The disposition of many men is to cut loose from fact and chase after fancy —to give way to impatience in asso ciation with desire to get rich or to get office quick. The record, upon which the Republican party stands, is brushed aside for acceptance of prom ises to meet the dreams of men in blocks and singly. The promises can not be met, and the proof of that is written plain in the history of all time. In the campaign of 1890 and the succeeding presidential campaign of 1892 wonderful things were promised. The promises could not be redeemed nor could much else be redeemed dur ing the painful years that followed. Business combinations and all that sort of thing were dealt with effectual ly. The restoration of confidence and business opportunity found the Amer ican people with grateful hearts. They were ready to unite in building up. Really the paramount issue in this campaign is prosperity. Is it worth while to preserve it? Can our people endure prosperity? Is adversity a nec essary evil? It is not intended to imply that the Republican party is the sole custodian of good times. It is intended to enforce the truth that business prosperity will suffer inter ruption under impractical experiment and persistent attempt to put into op eration fanciful and wildcat schemes. The Republican party is not playing to the galleries. It seeks to address itself to the sanity and good sense and to the moral and business Integrity of the people. The Journal believes the people should trust themselves, and that they should trust themselves to do the right thing at the right time. They should not trust everything to the men and factions that petition to be heard while they tell anybody's for tune, and who ask for pay in advance. The Journal admires the stand taken by Abraham Lincoln in the dark days of war. He sought to do every day what he believed to be right, and trust ed to the morrow for proof that he had done well—Sioux City Journal. WHY CHANGE. With hogs selling around nine cents, fat cattle from nine to ten cents, corn worth 75 cents, and horses worth $200.00 and over there is little desire on the part of the farmers to have a change from a Republican adminis tration. Under the protective tariff enacted by Republican administration the price of lands and of every thing the farmer raises for the market has steadily advanced. Farmers are not at all keen to change these splendtd conditions. It is felt that it is a good thing to refrain from any action that may result in lowering the price of lands and crops. Therefore the farm ers will be found pretty generally vot ing for a continuance of the Republi can administration.

According to a consular report, the exports of Morocco last year were valued at $5,000,000, of which more than half was grain, principally bar ley. Eggs were valued at $1,200,000. Beans and cattle made up the rest. Although the mention of Morocco always conveys the suggestion of des ert, as a matter of fact the desert is several hundred miles from the coast, and between the two lies some of the most fertile land in the world. Great things are planned by the French and Spanish invaders, though the results of their conquests are not yet evident. Among other things, many vineyards have already been set out. If the results In Algeria are any indication, the wine of Morocco may yet become famous. Happy Days Recalled. A Pittsburg lumber dealer contract ed to supply a lot of lumber to a stranger. On looking it over he found It full of knot-heles, and told his cus tomer about it frankly. "You may not want this lumber," he said. "Why not?" "I'll have to be honest with you. It Is full of knot-holes." The stranger only laughed. "I'll take it," he declared. "This lumber is to go around some baseball grounds. Knot-holes won't hurt mat ters any. I was a kid myself once."
