SPORT STi GIRLS Large Checks= and. Stripes for Suits and Coats with Boots Very High. If the predictions of modistes are verified during the coming season, traditionally chameleon natured woman will have more than, sufficient opportunity to bless Mother Eve for whatever protean tendencies she may have bequeathed to her descendants. In the first place, say the arbitrary salespersons in a certain fascinating shop, this is to be a "sport season." Sport suits, strictly tailored except lot it cerium giaioiui oiuubuuicof at the hlpB, are to be among the most popular. Checked materials, varying from the tiniest of the neatly conventional black and white checks, daring half Inch squares in brilliant orango and black, arc used for such suits, which In many Instances have neat collars and cuffs of kid or leather in some contrasting shade. The leather addenda, by the way, Is to be among the most modish in| novations, leather piping, leather buttons, leather belts and in many cases very much more elaborate combinai Hon of leather and the suit material being used effectively. Sport coats, loose fitting, graceful affairs, will be available In almost any color and any shade desirable. In many cases they are of jersey or silk jersey cloth, and some are combined effectively with the leather trimmings. Carrying out the "sport" Idea there are to be attractive mannish shirts, for which a popular material will be sport La Jerz silk?a new material which Is mado mostly in stripes of all colors. Such slripes vary from the i scarcely visible pin stripe to the broader and brighter bands of two or three inches. And as she trips lightly down the street in her severely tailored checked suit, her tailored striped waist and her very high boots?for fashion decrees that the latter shall take precedence of the usually popular oxford I and pump?milady undeniably will I convey the impression of being a very I sportsmanlike person, indeed. I But a swift change of raiment, and, ' presto, she is transformed. Back to ante-bellum styles of quaint basques and hooped skirts, of delicate, dainty llchus and soft lacc collars, such arc I (he mandates of fashion's leaders. I. Tho spring girl of 1916 may sport as she wills during the morning; hut it is decreed that, with her change at raiment for afternoon or evening, she shall no more escape the demands and requirements of femininity than I the leopard can change his spots. | Many of her afternoon and ovening | gowns will have basques?the genu( Ine 1830 kind. Her skirts are to be very full and very wide, and many of 1 them are to be hooped either at the side or at both back and sides. The I daintiest and most alluring of shades will be at her disposal?pearl gray. I old rose, exquisite bleu de ciel. In |A Georgette crepe of kokctte crepe (a new weave), there will be the inevi tame stripes, irequeuuy m huliu, some wide and others extremely narrow. Hand embroidery will be nscd to a great extent and neclcs and collars will be finished with the softest of lace mesh. Crepes will be combined effectively with satin or with , chiffon, and Indestructible voiles will be used for the simpler frocks. As a variation of the good looking high topped boot, French colonials arc to bo In vogue during the coming season. The toe of the modol for which the greatest popularity Is predicted is round, and the vamp is longer than that of last year. Many such slippers have perforations on the toes and flexible buckles, French kids are to be very much in use, the stlffer leathers being reserved for rather heavy mannish oxford.

"GHOST' Startles Kansas Town ana Armed Posse Fires at the Strange Apparition. SAUNA. Kan., Feb. lD.^Salina citizen? have leon considerably disturbed of late. And all because of a hijbterlous "ghost" that seems to delight In appearing at uncertain Intervals. 1 1 he Smoky Hill rlvor, a tributary of the Kansas river, divides the city alnios* in half, and of course a bridge is 1 r.eresrary near the center of activities for the proper transportation of gcods and traffic from' side to side. 1 The ghost, or whatever It is, has taken tip his headquarters at the western approach Bomewhat to the right, ' and apparently Is able to appear or disappear at will, Many have scon the strange white 1 figure numbers of times, and, although professing disbelief, none could ho Induced to undertake a close enough ln1 vestlgatlon to prove what It Is. Only nn ntm frostv nlalits does It show itself?a tall, wavering form, 'suggest' ing white sheets draped about a headless body. N'olselesB In movement, Intensified by the utter calm of the atmosphere, It rears Into tho air, wavos from side to tide, then gradually disappears Into > noth'ngness?a hideous, disagreeable phenomenon defying explanation. Many Avoid the ilridge. It has worked on (the minds of many i to tho extent of great Inconvenience, catis'ng them to avoid the bridge by adopting longer routes. I Finally a committee of ten men put tbolr heads together, and decided they would put a stop to the foolishness, i On a recent evening when the dreaded spocter was hovering about the bridge In all Its spooklsh glory, the commlt1 teo ventured within sixty feet of It. Suddenly the calm of the ovenlng was shattered by a fusillade of pistol and 1 gun shots. When the smoke had drifted from before their eyes the committee looked. The thing was still I thore, not at all disturbed. Decide to "Itush" the Ghost They then drow back and held a coiif.ultiitlon of war. It "was decided " to make .a rush at the ghost and over come it by sbeer force of numoors. This they did with affrighted faces, 1 an'l a cheering crowd assembled well to the rear. They returned with sheepish grins. 1 The warmth emitted by a sewer pipe ' emptying near the water's edgo formed a steam vapor that rose into tho air and extended above the bank, assnm1 ing fantastic and ghostly shapes.

V NEW YORK. Feb. 19.?John Barleycorn was bit anolhor blow when Arthur Hunter, on actuary of the Now York Life Insurance Company, told an audience of young men In the Twenty-third street branch of the Young Men's Christian Association that sixty per cent oj the short-lived persons wero heavy drlnkora. Mr, Hunter's locturo was on "Habits Thnl Shorten the Life," nn<l was full o( figures that support In ovory way the teachings of tho speaker. The life Insurance companies are III possession of Indisputable statistics proving that tho mortality among tho drinkers was Infinitely greater than among tho abstainers, Men who take two glasses of whiskoy n day when they take out their policies, said Mr. Hunter, almost always become heavy drinkers pnd in many cases Inebriates. They die long before they would had not their vitality been sapped up by alcohol, lie nssortod. "Seventy years ago," snld Mr. Hunter, "an abstainer was unknown, Every one believed that It wbb necessary to tnlco a little stimulant dally, When un nbstalnor applied for Insurance to a largp London company at that time he was (he first of bis kind evor seen. A special meeting ol the board was called to doal with this phenomenon and in tho end a special premium was asked. Contrary to nil expectations this man lived to eightytwo years of age." Lady Nicotine was treated more kindly by the speaker. Mr. Huntei laid few deaths to smoke nnd said that only In combination with drlnli did it over make an appreciable difference In the lives of policyholders. There are no reliable statistics to show the mortality rato among amok ore. for the companies do not consider sucli figures necessary. Unless n man smokos to excess thero Is no danger. Cancer of the mouth, Mt. Hunter said, seldom came from 'smoking and could'not be laid to tobacco, but to some Infection from the pipe or cigar itself. Lack of fresh air, overeating and failure to exerclso enough and eal health-giving foods wore other reasons glvon for short lives. "There are many kinds of cranks now," concluded Mr. Hunter, "but regardless of their fancies, whethel they bo non-smokers, alistalnors, vegetarians or fresh air tends.
