The way to be artistically gowned Is to discover one's best feature and. then dress up to it. This law hasi been laid down to the class in ar tistic costuming which was recently added to the fine arts department of the New York Teachers' college, and rthe instructor, who formerly designed for a Fifth avenue dressmaker, ap tplies it to emphasize the of developing one’s individuality, says jthe Boston Transcript. “If you have attractive eyes,’’ says the expert,; “make the most of them by your style; of dress. If your hair is jour sole claim to beauty, the tone of the should be such as to make the hairi .seem to beautify the entire face, the pink of your cheeks is alluring in Its delicacy choose some complemen tary shade for your dress.” Converse-} By, unattractive features —a prominent friose, eyes that squint or a too ample mouth —should be “dressed down,’ 1 ! and the expert affirms that such fea-[ [cures may be subdued and better fea-i tures given prominence if one knows fthe secret of the new art of beauty.j These secrets are to be imparted, it} jis understood, before the winter lb (over. “Any woman,” whether a mem-j |ber or not, may pose before the classy [which will frankly discuss her good; [points and poor ones and plan an ar-i itistic costume of the proper fabric; and the most becoming color, on thqi lines best suited to her figure. The sheer waste in this country Id Appalling Our working men get [comfort and enjoyment out of a giveri (Expenditure than the workmen ofj [Prance; the same is true of our mid-j idle classes as a whole; our local au-i thorities muddle away money; our Im-j jperial concerns are extravagantly] managed; our manufacturers throw, ptoney into the sewers or into thej atmosphere and destroy more 4n the process. It is not the coaii parafivc luxury among us so much as the comparative waste that striked jpeople who intelligently observe thej ways of other nations. Avery good] jdefense may be set up for those re-j [finements of life which collectively] lare termed luxury, says the Londoni Times. But for waste there is dutely no defense possible, and thq real indictment against us as a n<M f I jtion is that we stupidly fall to obtain luxury and the pleasure which oui (expenditure might procure. An exchange calls attention to the fact that while sermons were being preached on tuberculosis in its baili wick tho churches themselves tvere filled with impure air and other phases of the white plague. There is a trouble that the tuberculosis peo| pie will have to fight—crowded, 11b aired halls and churches. The trouble |s that the means for ventilation pot provided, says the Columbus (O.) State Journal. Opening a window or r door In most cases is objectionable. That creates a draft and starts a cold, which brings discomfort if not disas ter. It would be interesting to scs the statistics, to know which was the more fatal —drafts or tuberculosis. There are few places for general as. semblage that are hygienically venti lated. Another proof that the American girl is equal on every occasion. The ,’young ladies who attend Wellesley college have organized a fire brigade, with fourteen captains, all of whom live in dormitories and assume charge whenever fire is discovered. The brigade will be drilled for efficient service, and there is no doubt that when necessity arises these fire-fight ers of tho gentler sex will be “on the job.” Asa result of the census Chlcagc Is making a virtuous pose because 900,000 of the population are set down as “regular” church attendants. That dooko pretty good unless attention is directed to the 1,300,000 of irregulars. And what some of those irregulars do when the regulars are at church, ig a caution. The conquest of the air is not to by seft In the sole possession of record-1 breaking laurels. One of the great steamships is to make the round trip to Europe and back in eleven days, including time for loading and un loading of freight. Imagination is taxed to foretell what wonders the next generation will accept as ordi nary daily facts of life. A college student in Minnesota, or dered to propose marriage to a num ber of young women as a condition of his admission into a college club, proposed to twenty-three girls and was rejected by them all.

SENATOR CHINS HITS TARIFF LAW Makes Attack on Recent Legisla tion, Rouses Debate.

Washington.—A tariff debate was precipitated in the senate by Sen ator Cummins of lowa, and it brought out the fact that the insur gents are not alone in their proposi tion to revise the schedules piece meal. Senators Aldrich and Lodge were outspoken in their opinions that the schedules should be taken up one at a time, but the former held that this could be done without any “revolutionary” methods proposed by the Insurgents. The subject came up on a motion to refer to the committee on rules the Cummins joint resolution providing for the limitations of the power to Senator Cummins. amend bills looking to the modifica tion of paragraphs and schedules of the Payne-Aldrich bill. “I consider excessive and inexcusa ble many of the duties levied by the law of 1909,” said Senator Cummins. “I know also that many people believe that the law should be amended. During the recent political struggle I did not hear a single utterance by a Republican that did not admit that the law contains duties that ought to he changed and that it is the duy of congress to act speedily.” Declaring then that under existing parliamentary usage in the house and senate the amendment of a tariff law is out of the question, he contended that the first step to be taken was the modification of the rules so as to render it. possible to amend an indi vidual provision of the tariff law r without taking up the entire tariff question. “The real issue,” he said, “is wheth er we shall so amend our rules as to permit the amendment of the law, schedule by schedule,” Senator Aldrich expressed concur rence with the Iow r a senator. “I think,” said the Rhode Island member, “that w r e are all agreed that it is desirable to take up the tariff by subjects, not by schedules.” Senator Heyburn would not give assent to the proposition that all Re publicans are agreed to the policy of piecemeal tariff revision; he advo cated the protective policy and de clined to be committed to any other policy.

Governor-Elect Stays Away From Nen Haven Annual Banquet. New Haven, Conn.—Governor-elec’. Simeon E.

Officials of the chamber here, how ever, had been notified. Neither they nor Judge Baldwin wished it known that he had refused to attend the banquet because any definite an nouncement of such action by him would have resulted in a stampede by the Democratic members of the cham ber and so many of them would have followed the governor in refusing to attend that the banquet would have been a fizzle.

Isaac Ullmar , president of the chamber of com merce; President A. T. Hadley of Yale, Secretary Anson Phelps Stokes, Jr.; Chief Justice Frederick B. Hall of Bridgeport, former Gov. R. S.

The average healthy man or woman is usually eager to be busy at some useful task or employment. But let dyspepsia or indigestion get hold of one, and all endeavor becomes a burden. “A year ago, after recovering from an operation,” writes a Michigan lady, “my stomach and nerves began to give me much trouble. “At times my appetite was vora cious, but when indulged, indigestion followed. Other times I had no appe tite whatever. The food I took did not nourish me and I grew weaker than ever. “I lost interest in everything and wanted to be alone. I had always had good nerves, but now the merest trifle would upset me and bring on a violent headache. Walking across the room was an effort and prescribed exercise was out of the question. “I had seen Grape-Nuts advertised, but did not believe what I read at the time. At last when it seemed as if I was literally starving, I began to eat Grape-Nuts. “I had not been able to work for a year, but now after two months on Grape-Nuts I am eager to be at w r ork again. My stomach gives me no trou ble now, my nerves are steady as ever, and interest in life and ambition have come back with the return to health."
