New times demand. new measures
and new men:
The world advances, and In time
The laws that in our 'father's day
And, doubtless, after us, some
Will be shaped out by wiser men
Made wiser by the steady growth
The time is ripe, and rotten-ripe,
Then let It come; I have no dread
Is called for by the instinct of
Nor think I that God's world will
Because we tear a parchment more
Truth Is eternal, but her effluence,
With endless change, is fitted to
Her mirror Is turned forward to
The promise of the future, not the
My God! when I read o'er the
Of men whose eager hearts were
quite too great
To beat beneath the cramped mode
of the day,
And see them mocked at by the
world they love.
Haggling with prejudice for penny
worths Of that reform which their hard toil
will make .
The common birthright of the age
When I see this, spite of my faith
I marvel how their hearts bear up

Adding much to the social calendar
ifor today was the attractive luncheon
given at twelve o'clock at the Country

cousins, of "New Castle, Indiana, and
also for her sister, Mrs. Lawrence

A BETA DANCE.
Through a program of sixteen dances

danced throughout Thursday evening
and helped make the dance given by
Beta chapter. Beta Phi Sigma fratern
ity, one of the most enjoyable of the
year. The music of the orchestra was
delightful. Cooling breezes fled in
through the opened door and windows
of the dance hall and made August
dancing a pleasure. The dance, in
more ways than one, was original and
unique. Down through the center of
the living room of the club house a
large Japanese umbrella hung down
over the dancers. From this were hung
smaller lanterns. L'own from the cen
ter of the parasol a streamed of sweet
peas swung, lazily to and fro. Other
parts of the hall were decorated with
sweet peas. Brown paper with a leaf t
insert with the words "Beta Pre-Con- j
vention Dance" were distributed. A i
special car carried the party to the

TESTING AN EGG.
Many Ways to Detect Stateness Be
sides Smell and Tasts.
It does not require a very discrim
inating palate to detect an old egg
from a new one, says a correspondent
of the New York Sun. The former
has a musty flavor that the latter
never has. and the mustiness may
range from a slight taint to a very
pronounced one. It is always notice
able in storage eggs.
If any one wishes to verify the Judg
ment of his palate, the following tests
may be used:
1. It is almost Impossible to peel the
shell from a fresh hard boiled egg
without having some of the white
come away with it
2. A stale egg cannot be beaten to
3. When a fresh egg Is broken Into
a dish the yolk stands up and the
white does not spread, whereas in a
stale egg the yolk lies flat and the
white seems watery.
4. The shell of an egg after a cer
tain length of time loses its chalky
appearance and becomes shiny.
5. The air space In the large end
of a newly laid egg Is about half an
inch in diameter, and as the egg ages
this space grows larger. In storage
eggs It sometimes extends to one
fourth the length. An expert can Tery
closely approximate the age of an egg
by examining this space. This is
known as candling and is done by
holding the egg In a beam of light
A simpler test is to hard boll the egg
and notice the relattre size of tile
anace. . . .

A COMPETENT WITNESS.
Ths Mule's Testimony Wss Taken and
Accepted by ths Judge.
The originator of a widely known
probation system. Judge William J.
Pollard of a St Louis police court, is
ths subject of a Boston Herald story
which illustrates his unique way of
dealing out justice to minor offenders.
A driver had been brought before
Judge Pollard, charged with cruelty to
animals. He had been driving a galled
mule, but be had an expert witness In
a veterinarian who testified that the
sore on the mule's back did not pain
the animal in the least
The judge listened attentively to the
long technical opinions and then de
manded to know the mule's where
abouts. Be was Informed that it was
harnessed to a wagon which stood on
the street in front of the courthouse.
The Judge then ordered that court to
be adjourned for five minutes.
He took his cane and proceeded to
the street, went up to the mule and
with the end of his cane gently touch
ed the sore spot on the animal's back.
The mule promptly tried to kick the
dashboard off the wagon. Once again
the Judge touched the sore spot with
his cane, and the mule responded as
Judge Pollard returned to the bench.
The prisoner was called before him.
"With all due respect to the expert
testimony you have bad Introduced In
your behalf to show that the mule's
back does not pnin him, I will fine
you $50," announced the Judge. 1
asked the mule If 'the sore hurt him,
and be said it did."
Punctuality In London.
There is plenty of rush and hurry In
business London, just as In America,
but the English ways seem to be much
more systematic and dignified. The
man of business is always attired with
care pink necktie, chamois gloves,
frock coat, spats for business proce
dure in England must be met with due
compliance to English ideas of propri
ety. Appointments must be maxle by writ

when the appointment is made it is to
be kept to the dot I kept nine ap
pointments In one day and found every
man ready and waiting. When you
think that old London is slow just
wake up. They don't make much fuss
about things, but they just plan and
do what they set out to da Joe Mitch

Ths Egg and the Shell.
Eggshells are made chiefly of car
bonate of lime, and the yolk Is half
water, half oil and albumen, while the
white of an egg, as it Is called, con
sists of water chiefly with albumen
and a little phosphorus and sulphur.
The yolk always floats t the top of
the white, so to be as near as possible
to the hen when she sits upon It to
hatch it while two cords attached to
the yolk, one at each end. prevent it
from actually touching the shell.

FADS AND FASHIONS
Accordion pleating is coming in
with a rush. It is here In a few ad
vanced models of clever makers; but
the fashion is too beautiful to N. -g-nored
and it is predicted that the
pleated frock is to be a feature of late
summer and fall styles. Silk In plain
or changeable colors Is pleated for
entire costudes that are adaptable for
little runabout frocks or for elaborate
afternoon gowns. There is decided full
ness in skirt, sleeves and bodice.
Little accordion-pleated jackets of
soft chiffon and mousseline de soie
are now threatening to replace the
coatees of taffeta that have been i
such strong features. Evening wraps
and lovely negligees are showing
pleating in either entire lengths or as
ruffles on the berthas and sleeves.
But one thing must be remembered.
Fullness there Is in all the new frocks,
but baloon skirts are by no means in
style. There is still the straight line
of the figure to be adhered to. and it
must be admitted that the designers
have not introduced bulkiness. al
though they have given more actual
fullness than for several seasons.
The simple one-piece frock of linen,
cotton, silk or wool, as It is known
this season, comes very near being
the ideal summer frock for the girl
in her late teens, and the designers
have wrought so many variations upon
the theme that one may have a score
of such frocks yet show no monotony
save perhaps in the matter of line.
At this late day the shops offer any
number of these charming frocks at
very reasonable prices. There are pltn
ty of frocks useful and suitable for
summer wear which might continue
to give service during the autumn and
even the winter for house wear. There
are the pretty frocks of white charm
euse and of white taffeta, for example.
Unlined, rolling back from the throat
or in some way leaving the throat
free, light, supple, they are cool and
comfortable for summer, easily pack
ed, not prone to mussing like cottons
or linens, inexpensively and easily
cleaned, and they will be found ex
ceedingly useful in cold weather as
during the hot season.
Some attractive variations upon this
idea have been presented in brocaded
charmeuse, all white, lovely In texture
and rather dnll In finish. The figured
silk seems hardly as youthful as the
plain, yet here and there one sees
girls wearing frocks of it which are
decidedly girlish. One of these frocks,
seen the other day at a fashionable
gathering, had a skirt absolutely plain,
straight and narrow, though a little
fullness In the back allowed the wear

The belted tunic buttoned streight
down the front, had a collar of finest

MEASURING THE EARTH..
Erattoethenes Mad ths First Attempt
end Did Fsirly WelL
The earliest attempt to measure the
circumference of tbs earth was mad
by a Greek. Erastostheoes, who was
born 2TG R C He found that at
Syene the gnomon, or upright pillar,
used by the Greeks to measure the
height of the son in the sky. showed
the sun to be exactly overbesd at
midday at the time of the tnmawr
solstice, while at Alexandria the gno
mon cast a shadow upon the same
date, showing that the latter point
was one-fiftieth of the earth's circum
ference north of Syene.
Erastosthenes reasoned correctly
that the length of the shadow at Alex
andria bore the same rei itlon to the
circumference of the small circle de
scribed from the top of the gnomon as
a center that the distance between the
two cities bore to the circumference of
the globe. This latter was 5.000 stadia,
or about C23 miles, which when mul
tiplied by fifty gives 31.250 miles as
the circumference of the earth. This
result is not quite correct, but as
nearly so as could be expected from
the first rough attempt to estimate iu

Mexico's Wsy With Women.
Woman's place in Mexican life is the
inevitable mingling of the Moorish
ideas of the Spanish conquerors and
the savage ideas of the natives, the
Milwaukee Sentinel says. The Castll

hind stone walls and the picturesque
lattices of romance, and he is their
lord and master. On the other hand,
the Indian tribes are. of course, still
bound by the spirit of the ancient sav
age customs. Historians tell of one of
the baptismal ceremonies of the Mesh
1c tribes, who fought their way to su
premacy long before the Spanish ar
rived on the scene. To each boy baby
the priests chanted this command:'
"Thy profession and faculty is war.
thy obligation to give the sun to drink
blood of the enemies and the earth
corpses of the foes.' To the girl baby
they said with far less ceremonial:
