"The gods send thread for a wet begun," says Andrew Carnegie. And flies lor a web well spread. The women editors should not over look that story concerning the man who talked himself to death. French assassins are now close ri vals of French duelists in bloodthlrs tineas. They hurl the deadly tomato, Those persons who don't like Undo Russell Sage may as well cultivate a spirit of resignation. He is here to stay. Honduras Is showing signs of an other revolution. Now, how many days ago was the last Honduras revo lution? While the newspapers are quoting Russell Sage at 87, uncle Russell is just bullish enough to believe ho is going to 100. King Edward appears not to have kissed the blarney stono while in Ire land, but perhaps it was because he didn't need to. The uprising of unpaid veterans in Eastern Cuba has been narrowed down to four men and the person who started the story. Over in China the graduate, Instead of stopping to throw out hints as to how the world should be run, starts for the nearest woods. That Chicago thief who was held by the nerk until the police arrived did not need to bo told that his cap tor's name was Mrs. Huske. It Is learned that the latest Central American "revolution" started because a general got drunk. This is a more reasonable cause tban usually appears. The same boy who Is taught to be lieve that the drumstick is the best part of the turkey, grows up to im agine that his wife always gives In to him. Russia is not entirely satisfied with an apology this time. Turkey will have to do something more, or the sublimity of its Porto will get a seri ous jar. When Tsl An goes Into a Chines newspaper office to ask the editor "II he wrote that" It Is gonerally consld ercd to be a bad day for the editing business. If all revolutionists In Latin Amer ica fought to a finish as In Venezuela, the business of breaking up a govern ment In that part of the world would be less popular. Being a reformer In China is such a perilous Job that the man who un dertakes the part has to look In the glass every morning to see if hli head Is still on. It la said that 10,500,000 people are employed on the farms of America. Nobody appears to be able to explain why they have not gone to the charms of flat life in the cities. The editor of Punch, Sir Francl! Burnand, will publish in October "Rtminlscences of My Llfo." It will show that to get out an English hum orous publication every week Is nc joke. According to Prof. Zuoblln we are a people that multiply our bath tube and the need for them at the same time. But then this is not quite sc bad as leaving out the bath tubs alto gether. The news that another Mayflowei descendant is dead was read witt great interest by hundreds of New Englanders who are themselves des cendants of Mayflower passengers and don't know it. These must be great days for the teachers' agencies. The Philadelphia Press remarks: "If thero is a single county in the state that is not having trouble to get enough teachers it has not yet reported." A New Orleans shlrtmaker's Rtato ment that he has discovered the long hunted yellow fever parasite Is arous ing some Interest. If ho lived up North he would be advertising a para site with every shirt. Bafeblowers may lie traced because they left their coats in a sewlng-ma chine office from which they wen scared while working at their pro fesslon. Safeblowers should take warn Ing and adopt the shirt waist Monsieur Humbert pleads that he left business matters entirely tc madam and devotod himself "exclu slvely to art and poetry." There ba been a growing suspicion that mon sleur would turn out a good deal ol a cur. And now comes another mosquitr expert and says that the amokln joss sticks have no terrors at all foi the thing that sings and stings. Ai this rate the suffering public will lost all faith in scienoe and return to th screen and the slap, PHIliLIPSBURO If :fm ;f'?wjr I r "w .1 "i1' Tailor Costumes. There is no time of year when this class of dress Is not a necessity in a woman's wardrobe; It must adapt Itself to circumstances. To meet the needs of spring and summer the coat must either be discardable or suitable to wear indoors and out. Many are worn without a shirt or, blouse or un derbodice of any kind, only a vest at the throat, generally transparent, or a lace scarf daintily tied. This sort of garment has rather ex tended Its field and is being made, not only in glace sometimes, but very often in etamlne, canvas, grenadine and even in voile and crepe de chine. So it happens that the tailor takes the dressmaker's place, and that the dressmaker is doing tailor's work and is even sending out serges, friezes or cloth suits. The Short Skirt Suit A pretty way of making a short skirt suit is shown in a costumo of heavy tolle, In a whlto and black quadrille pattern. The skirt is trimmed on the sides by clusters of long tabs, growing broader toward the bottom, where they finish with a point and small gold buttons. The bolero has a collar making a point over the sleeve, and a stole in front that fin ishes at the bottom of tho jacket with pointed ends. Buttons are also used here. There is a little inner vest of tomato red linen, trimmed with but tons. The costume is completed by a white linen skirt and a white leather belt. Decorated Larkspur. Larkspur is becoming popular for floral decoration and the new varieties- of it are much handsomer than the old-time blossom with its deep blue petals. The modern flower is lighter In tone and much larger. Of these lighter varieties there are two distinct shades and they are more decidedly bluo than the larkspur of our grand mother's day, for that suggested pur pie colorings. Splendid Evening Gown. Evoning gown ol' pale lemon-colored organdie hand-paluted with Empire wreaths of vaylng sires. Dark brown velvet ribbon Is drawn through the lashes and tied in loops. Tea Frock. The young English girl of the period Is responsible for a rather nice innova tion, namely, the tea frock. The tea gown Is being considered one of her prerogatives, she has looked around for something In tho nature of a grace ful Indoor frock of simplified structure, and tho tea frock is the upshot. With out being a princess robe, it Is an all-in-one gown, and, while far from a negligee, it Is Intended to bo worn without corsets. Voile do sole, crepe do chine and soft silks aro developed Into tea frocks, and lace Is used in pro fusion, daintiness and elegance being desiderata. The fact that tho tea frock dispenses with hooks, eyes, pins and all such weariness is a point iu its favor. I TALK! gb To tell if a cantaloupe is ripe, dig your finger tall into the stem. It you can detect the melon odor on your linger tip the melon is ripe. It you need to use plaster of parts for stopping cracks, mix it with vine gar. Vinegar prevents Its settling too quickly and makes It easy of manipu lation. Put baby's bathtub on a box, In stead of on the floor, and you ran give the little one a bath in greater comfort to yourself, sit down to It, and have It the right height.

Charming and not overexpenslve is a hat of fine black straw trimmed with a thick wreath of forget-me-nots about the crown and a few tucked under the brim. Idea From France. Wltii his costumes tallleur, which are so near to tallor-mauo gowns as French dressmakers approach, a cele brated man milliner supplies very light slips of fine batiste Incrusted all over with lace Incertlons. They are designed to relieve the severity of the outer gown, as tho popular lingerie walste relieves the plainness of the two-piece linen walking gowns. Refrigerator hints: Do not flood It with boiling water. Keep the ice compartment full of ice. Do not put hot foods into the refrig erator. The more the Ice the greater the economy. lce savlrg . schemes are absurd, de feating the purpose of the refrigerator. Overripe fruits and vegetables are a r.icnaoe to the health if left in the refrigerator. If much Ice be used on the table and for other puposes an authority advises a storage box for this extra ice. It Is the fcod that Is to be kept in stead of the Ice. Keeping Ice in the slrk-rocra or at a picnic is another matter. A cellar or other damp place Is no place for the refrigerator. On the other hand, it should not be put out of doors unprotected. It shouM be sponged out often with warm water In which a little soda has been dissolved and the drain should not be neglected. . For Shrunken flannel. It Is possible to wash flannels with out shrinking them, but the average laundress does not know the process.

Artistic Drapery. Little really artistic draping of doors and windows is seen. For some reason most people seem satisfied with that which is trivial and without meaning. The beauty in artistic drap ing lies in the gracefulness of its curves and the Irregularity of Its ar rangements. A room may be made to look larger or smaller by the proper arrangements of Its draperies. Color schemes, too, have a tendency to pro duce the same effect, but it requires a draper with more or less tact and ex perience to produce these desirable effects. The material used In the drap pery illustrated herewith Is 60-Inch double-faced velour, which comes la solid color only. The over drape Is In old rose and the straight hangings In Nile.
