Two of the Newest Blouses
Women, having taken a violent
fancy to smocks for summer wear,
have replaced n few blouses with these
newer gurments. The smock hus not
arrived nt the place where It rlvnls
the blouse In popularity, but Its ad
vance townrd that stage has caused
»blouscmakers to consider It and to
* adapt their designs to Its lines. A
great many of the new blouses have a
peplum and a very loose girdle nt the
waist so that they are very close kin
to the smocks that have no waistline
other than thnt made by a loose cord
or narrow girdle placed In the most
casual manner possible.
Among the blouses, that extend be
low the waistline and sotne Inches
over the skirt there nre many that
have this extension only at the back
and front, like those shown In the
picture above. They cnriy a strong
suggestion of the smock, and stout
women like them because they make
the flgu-e look more slender than
those blouses that have a peplum or
v he smock.
The blouse at the left is made of
nark blue georgette with a. very nnr
row binding of satin to match, about
the neck. Other edges nre finished
with a pleot and seams nre hem
stitched. Slashes In the front and
back nre finished with plcot edges

Fall Cloaks Have Flowing Lines
The cape, pure and simple, having
had Its day of high favor, must puss
on to make place for cloaks and coats
more novel. But the cape is grace
ful and practical; a garment that
women love to wear and manufactur
ers have capitalised their fondness for
It by turning out new garments thnt
preserve its flowing lines.. These new
styles, at first glance, are very cape
like. They are long and ample, with
sleeves that are merely continuations
of drapery. Their collars are man
* aged in a variety of clever ways, and
some of them are collarless, while
others are so amply supplied with this
accessory that it becomes the domi
nant feature of their style.
The cape, unmodified. Is never
wholly absent, and Is represented this
season In handsome evening wraps of
silk. Also there are fur capes that
are guiltless of sleeves, that will ploy
their usual part In adding to the rich
* ness of fall and winter costumes, and
the owner of a fine cloth cape need
not feel that it is antiquated.
But the purchaser of a new cloak
jjvlU be likely to buy something sim
ilar to the very attractive garment
shown in the picture In which a full,
capelike body Id aet on to a plain, deep
yoke. The coat hangs straight In the
back Und is weighted with rows of
eovere'd buttons that make an' excel
the waistline. Another distinguishing
new touch appears in the wide band
about the flaring sleeve. An em
broidery pattern In chain stitching In
the same color as the blouse makes
an interesting ending to this chapter
In the story of new styles in blouses.
At the right of the picture »vb‘t*»
crepe de chine proves once more Its
adaptability to practical blouses. The
panels at the back and front of this
blouse are finished with hems and hem
stitching. and n crushed girdle of
crepe de chine lies easily about the
waist. The flaring sleeves are cut
Into an odd shape and faced back with
n band of the crepe de chine. Two
little silk crochet balls call attention
to the originality of the sleeve and
help to muke It hang well.
Clusters of grapes with leaves and
tendrils outlined are embroidered on
the front of the blouse In throe groups.
As In the dark blouse, this embroidery
Is machine made, hut in this instance
It Is Just as effective os hnndwork.
As harbingers of the new styles for
fall these blouses do not foretell any
very radical changes. A few new
models huve round necks higher than
those In the picture, and a greater
proportion of blouses In dark colors
indicate that skirts will probably
inarch the waist worn with them.
But It Is a little too early to do more
than draw conclusions which may not
prove conclusive.
lent ornament. They are used to fin
ish the deep, turned-back cuffs and the
front of the coat, their neat precision
of arrangement lending the charm of
fine tailoring to this tasteful model.
In place of a collar a satin scarf
with fringed ends makes protection
for the neck when It is needed.
Soft wool velours, pile fabrics,
broadcloth and heavy woolens In new
weaves are used for making the new
cloaks for practical wear. The ten
dency In weaving Is toward more
complicated cloths than were made In
war times. For evening satin and vel

tractive taffeta wraps that must not
be overlooked.
New and Interesting.
The milliners have invented a veil
of dark blue tulle which has a border
of tiny blue ostrich tips. The veil is
worn in the new way, drooping loosely
under the chin to Ihe collarbone over
the-bare neck and running straight up
behind the ears to the top of the bat
The edge of this type of veil Is always

1,200,000 Cases of White Plague in U. S.
Tuberculoa, i, die Came a! 150,000 Deathi AarnuDy. Accordmf to
Alarmed by the loss of man power caused by tuberculosis during the
war, Uncle Sam is polishing up the M. D., which is among the many letters
that follow his name, and preparing to take a leading part in the national
program for the prevention of the disease.
Final tabulation of the draft reject slips, recently completed, reveals:
Sixty-two thousand men were rejected when called for service in the na
tional army because medical examination showed they had tuberculosis.
Another 20,000 men were discharged at army camps for the same rea
Six thousand, still in service, are now being cared for in the army’s
special tuberculosis hospitals.
Aa these figures show, the government, at a time of a great national
emergency, was robbed of the services of approximately enough men for five
army divisions by the ravages of this one disease. But this is not all, for,
although progress has been made in the control of the disease during the last
ten years, it still is the cause of 150,000 deaths annually in this country,
and as scientific investigation has shown, for every death from the disease
there are eight active cases.
This indicates that at the present time there are in the United States
at least 1,200,000 active cases of the white plague.
At the annual meeting of the National Tuberculosis association in
Atlantic City a short time ago public health authorities outlined a co-ordi
nate national plan of battle against the disease. One result of this, it is
expected, will be the creation of a division of tuberculosis in the United
States public health service.
Already, as the government’s first step in protecting the nation’s
health during the reconstruction era, the United States public health serv
ice has been authorized to provide free hospital care for soldiers and sailors
Buffering from tuberculosis, honorably discharged on or after Oct. 6, 1917.
These patients will be treated in government sanitariums.
The even graver problem of caring for the 62,000 suderers who were
turned back into civil life by the draft boards has been assumed by the Na
tional Tuberculosis association, in co-operation with the surgeon general’s
office, through 1,500 societies which are affiliated with the national associa
tion, and some 600 sanitariums and 500 dispensaries are already available
for the work.
The situation is so serious, howover, that the national program calls
for hospital and sanitarium provision in every state in the Union that will
provide, as a minimum, at least two beds for every annual death, as well as
dispensary and clinic care so that every man, woman and child in the state
who has tuberculosis, or thinks he has it, or who may have been exposed to
it in any way, can secure free advice and treatment or treatment at moder
ate expense.

Some Curious Experiments
With Both Flame and Air
“On© of the many curious experi
ments made with the purpose of secur
ing long-range and reducing air re
sistance resulted in a “flaming shell,”
writes J. H. Van Deventer in Every
body’s. “The forepart of the shell con
tains a mixture of phosphorus and cop
per oxld. which Is Ignited as the shell
leaves the gun; not, strange to sny, for
the purpose of setting fire to the ene
my’s works or trains, but simply to
increase the range. Experiments have
shown increased ranges of almost 20
per cent for these flaming shells. The
explanation seems to be that the gases
given off coat the shell with n sort of
frictlonless gas film. Wind-tunnel ex
periments show that air resistance Is
cut down almost 75 per cent by these
gas films.”

Poison Root, the Wheat of
Barbados, Is Turned Into a
Wholesome, Nourishing Flour
The enssora root, or manioc, is the
wheat of Barbados. Before It comes
to be eaten. It suffers a strange con
version ; for, being an absolute poison
when it Is gathered, the natives sub
mit It to a process by which It is
trans-substantlated Into wholesome
and nourishing flour. The outside of
the root is washed clean and It Is
then held against a wheel, turned
around with the foot, the broad sur
face of which Js made rough like a
large grate. The grated root falls
down In a large trough, appointed ns
receiver Tor the purpose.
The thus obtained powder, or pulp,
Is a rank poison, hot ft Is now put
Into n strong piece of canvas and
pressed hard until all Juice is squeezed
oat. This dried poultice Is then
spread upon a cloth to be yet more
dried In the sun, until It Is ready for
use. The dough, or “pone,” as the na
tives call it. Is then put In a kind of
pan standing on three legs, and about
six Inches high. This pan Is nbout
20 Inches In diameter and slightly
hollowed In the middle. It is half an
inch thick at the edge, but thicker to
ward the middle. When the pan is
getting hot/ the dough is spread out
on It and the natives keep pushing it
down with their hands. This is to
make it stick together, it being nearly
dry. They then turn It round and
round with a kind of battledore until
it is done. The cakes thus produced
are about as thick as pancukes.
1 stood by the open casement
And looked upon the night.
And saw the west-ward gqlng stars
Pass slowly out of sight.
Slowly the bright procession
Went down the gleaming arch.
And my soul discerned the music
Of their long triumphal march.
Till the great celestial army.
Stretching far beyond the poles^
Became the eternal symbol
Of the mighty march of souls,
Onward, forever onward.
Red Mars led down his clan;
And the moon, like a mailed maiden.
Was riding In the van.
And some were bright in beauty.
And some were faint and small.
But these might be In their great height
The noblest of them all.
Downward, forever downward,
Heh)nd Barth's duaky shore
They passed Intp the unknown night
They passed and were no more.
No more! Oh, say not sO!
And downward Is net Jnsti
I'or the sight Is weak and the sense Is dim
That looks through heated dust.
The stars and the mailed moon.
Though they seem to fall and diet
Still sweep with their embattled Unas
An endless reach of sky.
And though the hills of Death
May hide the bright array.
The marshaled brotherhood of SOUIS
Still keeps its upward ,way.
Upward, forever upward.
I see their march sublime.
And hear the glorious music
Of th« conquerors of Time.
And long let me remember.
That the palest, faintest ona
May to the diviner vision ba
A bright and biasing sun.

Sustained Nervous Energy
Always Demands an Outlet
It has been discovered that cases
of people who have been exposed to
the fear of being torpedoed are suf
fering from symptoms suggestive of
shell shock. Doctor Clunet, in a com
munication to the Neurological society
of Paris, has described the mental
effects observed when on hoard a ship
which was torpedoed. After the first
excitement following the attack It was
observed thnt several passengers dis
charged guns Into the nlr or Into the
son. In other words, the sustained
nervous energy found relief In letting
loose the Immense energy concentrated
In explosives. Similarly, It was well
known at the front that a long day of
waiting in the trendies was productive
of more cases of shell shock than a
day of active engagement with the en
emy. Next there were a few cases of
suicide among the passengers. These
passengers were on the whole calm
enough, even on the life rafts. It was
only when they were on the rescuing
ship that psychoneural phenomena be
gan to develop, including mutism, spas
modic weeping, laughter, tremors, spas
modic movements of the limbs, etc.

thin people who are searching continually
for some method by which they may In
crease their flesh to normal proportions by
the filling out of ugly hollows, the roundfns

is no wonder that many and varied sug

While excessive thinness might be at
tributed to various and subtle causes in
different individuals it Is a well-known fact
that the lack of sufficient phosphoroils in
the human system is very largely respon
sible for this condition. Experiments, on
humans and animals by many scientists
have demonstrated beyond question of
doubt that s body deficient In phoophorouF

author and professor in bis book, “Chem
istry and Food Nutrition,” published An 19.11,
says: -*• • • that the amount of phos
phorous required for the normal nutrition
of man Is seriously underestimated In many
of our standard text books.”
It seems to be well established that thta
deficiency la phosphorous may now be met
by the use of an organic phosphate known
throughout English speaking countries as
Bttro-Phosphate. Through ths assimilation
of this phosphate by the nsrve tissue the
phosphoric content wtoea absorbed in the
amount normally required by nature soon
