SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1906.
Wide French ribbons with indistinct flowered patterns are much in vogue for high-dusts millinery, the plain edges ol" contrasting color adding much to the beauty of the whole. For a girl with light brown hair, a tiny toque of almost the precise shade has a folded velvet crown with a huge bow of the ribbon in shadowy browns with a satin edge of soft old pink. A large ball pin is thrust through the bow. A friend who occasionally gives me practical ideas Bays she has learned that if she jars her pan of cake dough heavily against the table several times before putting it in the oven the cake will never "fall." even though she opens the stove door before the pre scribed time has expired. A delightful occasion on Friday evening was at the home of Prof. A. J. Ladd of the university faculty, when the professor entertained a number of his friencte at a stag dinner. Cover* were laid for eighteen guests and a six course dinner was served. The table was beautifully decorated and the dinner was one that will go down in the history of the guests as re flecting great credit to the housewifey skill of the good wife of the professor. The guests were confined mostly to the university and Wesley faculty with a few others. They were Pro fessors Bruce, Squires, Brannon, Young, Sturns, Becker, Leonard, Ken nedy, Stout and Drs. Halfyard, Rob ertson, Stewart, Grasslck and Crane, Rev. Miller and Messrs. DeRemer and Garvin. Prof. Bruce acted as toast master and some very pithy and to the point responses were made to his numerous calls on the guests. $ Black evening gowns are bespan gled and beruffled that they may ap pear as elaborately beautiful as those of light colors, and when they are made up over white or with a touch of old pink, vivid green or light blue in the girdle and corsage decoration with their spangles, velvet ribbons and flounces, the most exacting of wo men could not wish for anything more Perfection of style and cut are far more Important than ornate decora tion, even in these days of elaborate ness of dress. Therefore let the home dressmaker choose her designs with care, paying well for her pattern, and using simple trimming if need be, to get the best results for her labor. At the home of Miss Stella Lombard on Friday evening Miss Alice Perry and Miss Lombard entertained about forty of their young friends in a man ner that will not soon be forgotten by the fortunate guests Invited. The guests came attired as "spooks," and it was a ghostly procession that wend ed Its way toward t*e nbard home about 8:30 o'clock. When all had gathered they were shown to the attic —the usual gathering place of "spooks" and there were regaled with ghost stories and actions that made the blood run cold of the more timor ous. Rev. F. E. R. Miller, It is said, told some of the most blood curdling. Later they all adjourned to the parlorb where music, games, etc., made th evening pass quickly. A delicious lunch was served. That Watteau effects are to succeed tlhe Empire is more than hinted at, says Vogue, and the arrival of the many-flowered designs in silks, sat ins and satins brocaded in velvet, bears this rumor out Bordered materials are having quite a vogue, the lovely printed chiffons showing pompadour designs having the greatest following up to this time. FASHION PARAGRAPHS From New York. New York, Nov. 3.—The necessary touch in the color of the day is brown. is worn with every color, and the very latest styles is to have a brown belt, veil and gloves to wear with the street or traveling suit. The blue and green plaids that are so pop ular have this touch of brown to set them off, and even the dresses of pale colors need just this distinctive brown to make them the style of the season. Whole brown costumes are greatly in favor, and brown velvet leads for the afternoon toilettes. Every costume shop in the city has shown brown vel vet costumes in show windows this «Bason, and besides the brown velvet there are the chiffon broadcloths and the wool materials. The single color and the smooth effect rules supreme. The counters are filled with browns of every style and price. One of the prettiest of the brtfwn hats is a felt of golden tone, trimmed with a darker shade of velvet and a lighter of silk. There is a band of each, and between the bands is a line of pale blue silk in a soft fold. The trimmings for one side of the hat is brown plumes and for the front is a single great pink rose. Most of the brown hats are all brown, and the touch of relief comes either in gold, yellow or one of the soft pastel tints. The brown gloves are to be worn with any costume, whether it be brown or not These gloves are elbow length with the afternoon and evening costume, or wrist length' with the street dresses. One of the fashionable evening gloves Is a very pale shade of brown, embroidered in the darker tones of the same color. Some of them are embroidered with silk and have an applique of white honiton lace. Some of the women effect the heavy brown gloves that are worn by men. With all the fancy for wearing brown, the shoe menchants are bring ing out shoes in brown leather, brown kid, both glace and seuds, and the old fashioned bronze boots. Low cut brown shoes call for brown hose of the exact shade, and to wear wltfe the low COMPARISONS Take a backward glance the states of Iowa. Minnesota, Kansas and Nebraska all these states, except Minnesota, are Prairie States, the same as North Dakota with the exception of coal, these states have no advantages over North Dakota. Twenty-five years ago the State of Iowa did not have a city with over 20,000 to 25,000 inhabitants today these same cities have from 30,000 to over 100,000 population. These are modern times, and one event follows another mere quickly, and if we move in the same ratio in fifteen years Grand Forks should be a town of 40,000 people. North Dakota must, and WILL have, three or four large business centers, and Grand Fcrks, and Fargo, being just at the gateway of this great commonwealth, must necessarily, with all the advantages which they now possess, take the lead as business centers for their respective localities, and the surrounding country. Both cities have now a good start, being in a closely and richly settled part of this territory, and with the modern facilities for doing business, and the great tide of immigration coming this way, must go forward. It is impo88lble to stand still. We have recently purchased one hundred and twenty acres of nlad from Mr. William Budge of this city, and two hundred and thirty-eight acres, known as the "Skldmore Farm," being all the property lying north of University avenue, west of the city limits, and running north to the Fair Grounds. This property Is now being platted, and will be placed on the maket at once for sale. This property we have bought very cheap and will be sold at a very low price, and on terms to suit the purchaser. There will be over forty blocks platted and will be known as "Kelsey's Addition" to the city of Grand Forks. The balance of the acreage will be divided in tracts of live, ten, fifteen or twenty acres to suit purchasers, and sold on easy payments these will make excellent chicken and truck farms. The placing of these' small tracts on the market will fill a long-felt want among the numerous parties who have made Inquiry for such farms. There are already over 2,000 trees growing on the property, and which In a few years will make ample shade. And this prop erty, lying three or four blocks back from the railroad, will be just far enough away so that parties residing there will not be annoyed by soot dust, and smoke from passing trains, or from the yards which are now located in the west and south part of the city. We have also decided to pay all taxes on the property and any one purchasing these lots, will have no taxes to nay until March 1st, 1908. We have also opened up Dakota Avenue from the Winship School to the Wesleyan College grounds, which makes one of the finest drives in the city, and the general public are invited to use it as a driveway, starting at the Winship School, passing through St Bernard's Academy grouds, and by the Kneeland greenhouses, clear through to the Wesleyan College grounds. How To Buj: Call at our office and we will show you the plat. Call at our office, or telephone, and we will take our auto and show you the lots.

Special attention will be paid to out of town parties wishing to purchase, and we will give them the best lot Remaining unsold, at the price which they wish to pay, and will be glad to answer any communications or inquiries made to us. When To Buy: NOW is the time to buy, when you can get your choice of location and frontage. How Sfnt'h To Bur: Buy all you can! MAXIMS "There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads to fortune." "Strike while the iron is hot." ROBERT WESTACOTT. fm. W. B. KELSEY. Sec'y P.O. BARROWS. V. Net. Kelsey Development Co. GRAND FORKS NORTH DAKOTA shoes are the brown spats or gaiters. Some of the women that do not care for brown shoes wear the spats with black shoes, and make the spats do instead of an extra pair of shoes. Brown even extends to the hat pins and the shope have a large variety. There are the tortoise-shell pins, al ways good style, but the fashionable ones of today are large balls, as large as a wainut. Besides the tortoise shell t'here are the smoky or clouded amber pins and brown bronze ones. The pins for the hair are, too, worn this season, run largely to the tones of brown. Not to have something brown proves that one is not in style. Brown being one of fashion's fa vorite colors this season, the winter will see a wide and varied use of brown furs. Brown caracul and pony skin will be seen to a great extent in the jaunty short coats, collared with mink or martin, or trimmed with beautiful sort pliable braids In black for con trast. This use of braid on fur gar ments is new to the season, but it is one .which we will doubtless see much of. It offers many suggestions for the remodeling of past season's fur garments which might otherwise re main Indefinitely in the cedar chest or moth-proof bag. While the majority of coats, botb great and small, are collarless, there ae some beautiful models which show a high medical collar. This, however, is only found In those loose ?fittlng coats intended for evening or after noon street wear, with semi-dressy toilettes, the collarless coat still hold ing exclusively for evening wear. One model of a beautifully-blended mink expressed in the Empire mode shows a deep yoke which stimulates a deep sailor collar back and front, and a high medical collar of brown sat in, covered with baby Irish crochet lace, the inside of the colter of the mink. The yoke is outlined with a two-inch band of the mink, and the corners of the yoke are joined, or seemingly held to the body of the coat by shirred straps of brown velvet, connecting the front and the back beneath the arms. These are caught to the piont of the yoke by rosettes of velvet with jewelled centers. An other interesting feature or this same is the use of the mink on the cross of the pelt in the form of a border in the coat shirt and in the wide cuffs of the ample sleeves. Sleeves of fur garments are both long and short. One maker shows a smart sleeve idea In his pony coat models which is quite the most novel seen this season. The sleeve is really full length and is so worn for general street wear, but the lower part is so constructed that it may be turned back to form a cuffed sleeve of three-quar ter's length, the fur being used in a facing between the wrist and the el bow. When worn long, cords and olives button the sleeve in form, and when reversed, these have the effect of an ornamental trimming. Qpeer Hiding Places. "Let's pay the waiter and get rid of him," said one of a group of women who were refreshing themselves in a tea room after a morning of shopping. Each woman dived for her money, and each into a different place. One pulled her purse from her handbag another produced her money from a chain coin purse which hung around her neck still another opened a big envelope pocketbook to get at her bills, and another blushed ever so slightly as she surreptitiously dug into her stock inc.

"Our girl, Bridget," began another, "had a most unsanitary habit of bury ing her savings in the tea cannister, until we commanded her to desist. And now she keeps it in a broken nosed milk pitcher that we never use." "I keep mine In the toes of a pair ot' slippers," said another, "and when I go away always put my money at night in the toe of my shoe. No burglar would ever think of looking for It there." "My money is safely stowed away in my stocking bag," chimed In another. "And I keep mine In a match box I bought for a Christmas present for a man and then got mad at him before Christmas came," confessed the girl who had gone, into her stocking.—New York Press.

Mrs. Church, at St. Lojiis, informed the American Bankers' association that women are more honest than men and that women officers would be a good asset to any bank, and if they were more generally employed there would be fewer bank failures and em bezzlements.

Miss Alberta Gallatin who comes to the Metropolitan on Wednesday is in deed a clever woman. She is a south era girl, born in Virginia and spent the earlier years of her life there. Her father was a member of congress and was the youngest member in the house at that time. Her grandfather was also a member of the same body.

Her parents of MISS ALBERTA GALLATIN In Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall. course objected to her entering the theatrical profession, but her heart was in it, and she made the plunge. She is a woman that has encountered many difficulties and mastered them. After a career with Richard Mans field, Henry Irving, Mrs. Flske, Joseph Jefferson and other theatrical lights. Miss Gallatin began a starring career, first appearing in an elaborate produc tion of "Nell Gwynne" followed by Ibsens "Ghosts" and "Cousin Kate" in all of which she met with market* success, which spurred her on to a greater effort. Her latest offering is her own version of Charles Major's famous book "Dorothy Vernon of Hadden Hall" and Mr. Major himself has ex pressed himseir as greatly pleased with Miss Gallatin's interpretation of his story. She has followed the book more closely and picked out and perfected the best in the story, which all others had overlooked. Miss Gallatin lives the part she plays and in the many stirring scenes and brilliant climaxes she is at her best. She speaks with a rich southern accent, that is delightful to the ear. One scene in which Miss Gallatin is superb, is in the third act. Among the many suitors who come to claim Miss Dorothy's hand Is the young Earl of Derby, a worthless fellow, who knows little else than horses, gam bling and carousing with the stable boys, who form his chief associates. The father of the Earl and Dorothy's father wish them to marry because of the prominence of the two families, but Dorothy refuses and induces Queen Elizabeth to take up her cause. On the evening the compact is to be signed before the Queen, her majesty has assembled about her the entire court As the articles are about to be drawn up, Queen Elizabeth asks why Dorothy's wishes are not con sulted and when Sir 'J30. Vernon replies that it is not customary, the Queen demands Dorothy to be sum moned to her presence. Miss Gallatin comes rushing in on this scene and begins removing her beautiful costume to the horror of all present. Beneath her beautiful gown, however, is a peasant's costume. She turns to the Earl and her father and exclaims, "You came here to barter and to buy me as if I were a horse and you can BECAUSE: The State is developing largely, growing rapidly, and the in* creased attendance at our State Uni* verslty necessitates the building of large additions to the already com modious buildings every year.

East Grand Forks Is also the terminal headquarters for the Ked Riv er valley division of the Northern Pa cific railway. better judge me in this coBtume. I am sound and perfect, have two good eyes and am without a blemish. I will give you an exhibition of my fine points." With this Miss Gallatin goes through all the actions of a high bred horse. Prances trots, dances and keeps step to the music in perfect imitation of a valuable horse. This scene alone places Miss Gallatin In the foremost rank of American's leading actresses. Florence Roberts. Following the opening performance of the new modern play, "The Strength of the Weak," which introduced that talented lady Miss Florence Roberts to Broadway as an aspirant for stellar honors the Evening Mall has in part to say "A new star lit up the Liberty theater last night. She came from the west and the East liked her. Florence Roberts is not starring on the strength milk bath or even a plunge in Wall street. There is nothing of the mushroon about her growth. She has been broken into her business as an emotional performer not in a school of acting or through a court-room pro ceeding, but on the hard and heart rending 'road.' For several years as one of the incidents of her career, she was the leading woman with that ex perienced old actor, Lewis Morrison, whose wife she is. She came to the White Way,' quietly without a flare of trumpets and by the force of her own cleverness made the skeptics sit up and take notice and th* reception she received last night some of the 'pull' behind them' actresses would give their arm to be accorded. Miss Roberts did more to establish herself on Broadway in a single night than hundreds have done in a life time. The star and play with the same all star cast is to be seen here on Thurs day next.
