4* THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25,1906. A Valley That I Love. By Ethel Ash ton Edwards. I know a valley, lined with pastures deep, A place of rest, where one may close awhllo Eyes weary of the strife, and learn to smilo In sleeping one Ions sleep. While nature held her breath, I passed the same deep vale today in tears. Unchanged by all the hateful changfc of years. It whispered me of life beyond the death. .. Flowers cunningly constructed of ribbon and tinted in the natural col ors are to play an important part In fancy work for the holidays. Charm ing designs are being exhibited. Mrs. James Dlnnie's afternoon at cards on Wednesday was a delightful affair. Prizes were won by Mesdames H. M. Wheeler and D. M. Holmes. Mrs. Dinnie was assisted by Mrs. D. A. Dinnie of Minot and Mesdames E. J. Densmore and M. Stanchfield. The decorations were in red and white. Mrs. Dinnie is entertaining another large company this afternoon. Pin cushions in many different styles show ribbon floral decoration. One of the daintiest is made in the shape of a rose of pink satin. It is about five inches in circumference, and the satin is cunningly caught in to represent petals about a center of artificial stamens. Miss Daphne Bosard, chaperoned by her mother Mrs. J. H. Bosard, enter tained a theatre party of ten last even ing at the "Illusion o'f Beatrice." The guests were Mr. and Mrs. Ray Jack son, Misses McHugh of Oak Park, 111., Edith Bosard and Jessie Strachan and Messrs. Jack Marquette, Stephen Mc Klnnon and Bert Selby. A dainty sup per was served at the Bosard home afterwards. The party was a happy one and for the evening Miss Bosard was the cynosure of all eyes. Some days ago The Evening Times inau gurated a voting contest, the prize be ing two boxes at the Metropolitan for the "Illusion of Beatrice," with MIBS Maude Fealy in the leading role. Miss Bosard was voted the most popular young lady in the city and with a party of ten of her friends enjoyed the boxes. The present fashion of wearing pin afore waists, and tiny boleros over blouses is a boon to most women, for a remnant of lace or net makes the underblouse, and a mere scrap of material will make the outer sleeveless waist. A clever needlewo man uses all the pieces left from cut ting her skirt in this way. Many of the pinafore waists are made of bands, carefully stitched and pressed, caught together with tiny strapB and buttons. These straps may be of the material and gulmpe and sleeves or a complete contrast, but now is the suitable time for using the bargain remnants that have been tucked away as quite useless and sad reminders. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Campbell en tertained a loge party at the Metro politan last evening for the "Illusion of Beatrice." The guests were Miss Tuthill of New Burg, New York, MISB Marion Green and Dr. Whltcomb and Mr. M. Llverman. There is no better support and no nattier one for washable stocks than double rows of tiny pearl buttons set close together at front and sides. Stocks, by the way, are all buttoning up the back instead of fastening with a brooch. Little pearl buttons and buttonholed loops are the right fast eners. A stock and belt of the same silk, chosen with an eye to contrast or har mony of colors, gives a lot of smart ness when worn.with a plain jacket suit and white waist. The stock may' be a plain collar piece, with a four in-hand knot or jaunty bow, a little white top collar being worn over it. The belt should be boned in the back, or held out by a metal girdle former, and either folded or tucked length wise it may be finished with a buckle or a flat ring of bonnet wire covered with the same material as the belt twisted over it, the belt slipping thru this and being hooked invisibly be neath. Nearly every one can find, among her odd pieces, material enough to make such a set. One wo man has just finished making a very pretty stock and belt from the cover of an old taffeta parasol. WHAT WILL WOMEN WEAR? Winter's Fashions Discussed With a Leading Local Modiste. What will women wear this winter? Our question was addressed to a well known local modiste. She answered, "It would be very hard to give an ac curate forecast of the winter fashions, because they change so rapidly. But as far as we can learn from eastern and French fashion journals there are to be no radical changes of figuration or regulation of lines. Many have been longing to see the corselet skirt go out and will be disappointed to learn that some of the most modish of the Paris and New York gowns are fitted on these lines. The novel features are in color and material, not in change of outline. Paris and New York have cordially adopted this style and there is no doubt but it will prevail through out the winter. But there is one inno vation in regard to figure though that mjist not be overlooked that Is the shoulder. Women are to be made much broader on those lines than ever before, they say. With the tight-fit ting skirt outlining the hips and mod eling the waist so plainly, for they must this season look like they were melted and poured in, the bodice must show a long shoulder line, ending in a slightly longer sleeve than hitherto and standing well away from the arm. This effect must be secured with bon ing and canvas, even hair cloth, is used. In many instances the sleeve is cut In one piece with the shoulder, the shoulder seam being dispensed with. This leads up to the fichtt, which will be used quite extensively this season. L\ Our Organs All the Stanard Makes of Or gans at prices that defy com petition. The Estey leads the world.

'Rolls are Best draped low over the shoulder. Mater ials of the richest are used, in fact, It takes an income to dress these days. Some magnificent dress goods are shown by local merchants, but, Oh, the price! But one must economize on something else and succumb, for the new gowns are noted particularly for their elegance of material. Velvets and rich silks will be much used for street and afternoon gowns, and there is a new weave of serge, a coarse, open serge, that is expensive, but wears like iron and will be quite the thing this season. For dressy gowns it looks like the empire and princess effects are here to stay this season. In tailored gowns there is a wide variation, everything being seen from the smart little Eton to the long, tight fitting coat, three quarter length. The latter will be much worn, but it must fit and fit well. There can be no half way measure with the tight-fitting, three-quarter length coat, for what make a woman look more dowdy than one of these not fitted well? And what's more, It requires a figure to wear them. The woman who cannot boast of one had better confine herself to the long, loose coats. They are just as fashionable as ever and made up in the richest of materials. The most beautiful seen for elderly women, particularly are those of rich black velvet or satin. Some pretty ones are shown in the smooth broadcloths. For an all around utiltly coat the long, loose ones are certainly the most eco nomical to purchase. It is hardly necessary to say plaids are the rage, but, for the conservative elegant dresser they are not a good purchase. If one can afford a number of gowns a plaid one, then, is well enough, but imagine the heart-sickness *1 of the woman, before the winter is who can only afford the ode good dress or tailored frock, investing in a plaid. The woman who dresses well sees to it that she has, if she has nothing else for the season, one good tailor made suit with hat to match. The plainer this is made and the better it fits and the more elegant the material, the better she will appear. This, if well made, is suited to any occasion but the late evening one. There, though one can be gowned with small er cost. Pretty light evening gowns are not hard to manufacture, but the tailor suit is something to put your whole thought and every cent of mon ey you can spare into. Pointed Paragraphs. Life's most desirable pleasure cost the least. It it too much to expect meaty re marks from a vegetarion? Beware of the man who makes a specialty of making excuses. In after years a young man's bump of conceit becomes a dent. Don't get gay, especially when it isn't your time to make merry. Gentleman burglars think it is up to them to break into society. It's easy to talk philosophically ii you are not personally interested. And one good turn is usually follow ed by two had ones—in a variety show. Genius is 90 per cent insanity—and the remainder depends altogether up on the brand of genius.

Amusements Emil ft Erlckson. Decorah Republican, Feb. 15, 1904: Not sines the last appearance here of "Remenyi, the French violinist," has a Decorah audience heard such violin music as was given last Thursday evening at the Grand by Emil Conrad Erikson. His first notes aroused ex pectation and before his first number was concluded the audience had been assured that they were to enjoy a treat. The suppleness of his wrist, the strength of his bowing, the brilliance of execution were at once apparent, and the delicacy, clearness and precision of his tones were a de light to all. Standard concert se lections were given for his main num bers but he honored fais fellow coun trymen and pleased a® well, the Ameri cans present by his inimitable rendi tion of a number of Norwegian folk songs are encores. Mr. Erickson will appear at the Metropolitan theater on Friday eve ning. Hairy Beresford. The average auditor in the theater does not realize how much a comedian depends upon a wink of the eye and a twist of the mouth. Facial expression is one of the chief mainstays of the comedian. In this phase of the actor's art Harry Beresford, who is starring The House of Furniture and Music Straight Business Talk We do not pretend to sell goods below cost. No business man does that.

O.YOUNG'S FURNITURE & MUSIC HOUSE 12S-126-129 South Third Street, Grand Forks, North Dakota in "The Woman Hater" excels. His mimicry is inimitable. Pantomime is always more difficult than elocution. At the same time Mr. Beresford is much more than skillfull pantomimist, for he excels in all of the essentials that go to make a great comedian. His methods are quiet but effective, and he never descends to horseplay to abtain a laugh. It is only a just, tribute to state that since the death of Joseph Jefferson there is not a comedian on the stage who wins his laughs with such perfect artistry. Apart from his art Mr. Beresford pos sesses a personality that has made him the most popular player on the beards since Sol Smith Russell. "The Woman Hater" with Mr. Beresford. will be the attraction at the Metro politan next Monday. John Griffith. John Griffith, the tragedian who looks like William Jennings Bryan is as much an enthusiast on Shakespeare and the classic drama as Mr. Bryan is on his theories of government and- is quite as popular with the audiences who enjoy Shakespeare's plays,as Mr. Bryan is with his own political ad herents. Mr. Griffith is announced to appear here shortly in Shakespeare's tradedy "King Richard the Third", and will have the support of an excellent company including William Lloyd, Edgar Stafford, Charles Sutten, Kathrayer Roth, Delaney' Barton, Mabel Standish, Josephine Paige, Jr tl' I Jr I if Natalie Dumas and other notable artists who are specially fitted for classic role. He will also have an entirely new scenic equipment, histor ically correct costuming and the other things needful to insure a performace that will delight his auditors. SHIUl FRUIT SH AT Ml END Apples However are Coming In in Car. loads—Dealers Swamped with Poultry. Poultry is more plentiful now than it has been at any time during the season. The market is flooded, in fact, and prices are the lowest they have been this year. There was a time this fall when the fowls were not very plentiful, and the market had been quite firm. The present conditions will probably con tinue long enough to give everybody of slender means an opportunity to enjoy a few chicken dinners without too great an outlay of cash. Ducks, geese and turkeys are not so much in evidence. Ducks were plentiful on the local market last week, but the supply was pretty well cleaned out and during the last few days there has been a scarcity. They are being held back, with the geese and turkeys, for a prospective higher market later on. The farmers figure that November will offer a good deal better market than the latter half of October, and are acting accordinly. The small fruit season is rapidly drawing to a close. This week will see the last of the peaches and plums, and other small fruits are pretty well cleaned up, with the exception of grapes. Quite a large supply of grapes is still to be had. Apples are plentiful, and will be plentiful for some little time yet. Speaking of apples, large shipments of them are being received from New York and the west just now. They are coming in in generous quantities. They consist mostly of York State Kings, Nonesuch, Talman Sweets, Pound Sweets and the Rhode Island Greenings. There is also a plentiful supply of Jonathans, which, for eating purposes, are claimed to be the finest grown. The potato market is booming with good prices prevailing, however, and all in all the prices are considered quite reasonable for this season of the year, although, to the average care ful housewife, they seem rather high. Holland seed cabbages are on the market. The dealers say there is apt to be an advance in the price of cab bages soon. It is thought that onions will advance in price in the near fu ture, although they may be had at present at a reasonable figure. Out door green tomatoes and other veget ables of this nature are a thing of the past. Lemons are still holding very firm in price. The quantity of lemons in sight is small, and a reduction in prices is not looked for. Neither is another advance expected. Creamery butter continues to com mand a high price, and the reports from different points where it is be ing received from are to the effect that there is a great shortage of milk. Receipts of butter are not near ly so large as at this season last year. The price may advance still farther. There are people who never give a thought to the hereafter except when they have occasion to pass a grave yard after dark.

Nothing is more economical in wall decoraton than a dado, according to Wall Paper News." As the lower part of the walls becomes soiled more quickly than the upper, a room cau often be freshened simply by renew ing a dado, without touching the up per walls. Another advantage of the dado is that it gives a room a com fortable and furnished appearance without the addition of a lot of fur niture. This is particularly true of a hallway or stairway where there is a lot of space that needs breaking up.
