THE SAN JUAN TIMES.
FARMINGTON, NEW MEXICO. The Indiana man who Is socking hi? eighth divorce must have been soreiy henpecked. Whew! twenty-two inches of snow in northern New York. Don't that make your teeth chatter? No citizen out of a job will condemn Mr. Roosevelt for discharging a police man who has saved $500,000. It Is reasonably certain now that the days of public prize fighting in this country are past. Knocked out. The Maine delegation will be solid for Reed. They will point with pride to the wood that he sawed last Bummer. Emperor William has silenced Herr Horn, but will not Herr Horn's impris onment sptak trumpet-tongued against the war lord? Poor young Mackay or rather rich young Mackey would have been alive today if he had been on a bicycle when he was on his hor.se. We are surprised to hear that Lady Sholto Douglas is going back on the variety stage. We had supposed she had reached the dime museum level. To say that the duchess Is three inches taller than the duke of Marl borough Is a particularly graceful way of conveying the information that the duke at present is a little short. Victoria is not too old to have a very good opinion of herself and to cause a plate to be put up in the room where Bhe was born in order that the world may know the scene of her birth. The "bloomer restaurant" has ap peared in California and scored an immediate success. The next thing in the march of progress will be a Trilby restaurant with bare-legged waiters. It is said the Atlanta Midway is not so wicked as the one at the World's Fair. It should be remembered that Atlanta has not the local material on hand to draw from which Chicago had. Whenever a "peer" is manufactured in England all the newspapers dwell upon it as a notable event. In the United States they are born, day and night, and nothing is said about it out side of the family. If it is true that Gertrude Vanderbilt is to marry Mr. Taylor she is doing somewhat better than her cousin. An American citizen with 120,000,000 out ranks an impecunious English duke every day in the year. The two children of Mrs. Riles, of Tennessee, who Is 100 years old, though they are aged, respectively, 73 and 71, have never married. Mrs. R. must have been a very good mother to keep her family together so long. A woman on a bicycle frightened a horse and caused him to run away. It wasn't the woman's face that did the scaring; it was the Marlborough bow at the back of her knot, which made It impossible for the horse to tell which way she was going. Taylor, the defaulting ex-treasurer of South Dakota, who was sentenced to confinement for only two years for get ting away with some $300,000 of the people's money, Is to serve his time in the Sioux Falls penitentiary close to Nebraska's famous bank wrecker, who secured a sentence correspondingly light when compared to the huge sums of which he defrauded others. The crowning insult to the horse went 1 unresented at Kansas City the other day. Down Grand avenue rolled a man on a wheel, leading a fine, sturdy, middle-aged hore in the prime of life and usefulness. The horse jogged along aftei the wheel with his head hanging deject edly and shamefully. He evidently real ized his degradation, but was too hope less and heartsore to resent it. And lov ers of the horse, man's intelligent friend and companion, looked after him pity ingly, and wished he would back up, pull the man off the wheel, and dance on the machine- but he didn't. The yield of cottonseed oil last year is placed at 1,200,000 barrels, and this i year's yield has been estimated "at onlv about 700,000 barrels or less, owing to the anticipated short cotton crop. Others, however, say that the cotton crop will be up to the 7,000,000 bale mark, and that fully 1,000,000 barrels of cottonseed oil have ueen produced from a similar crop before and will be produced again. But a short crushing season, it is claimed, does not necessar ily mean high prices for cottonseed oil, as the price of lard is very low, and the demand for compound lard, into the manufacture of which the oil so largely enters, would mean the finding of a new outlet for cottonseed oil." WOMAN AND HOME. UP TO DATE READING WOMEN AND GIRLS. FOR Some of the Latest 8tylea for the Ladles The Handsomest liowns New De vices In liodlce Trimming odd Braidings. O connect any ra tional idea with a woman's dress seems ridiculous, and yet many things are discard ed by her because they cast a suspi cion of worry over her face, while she demands the same effect in more healthful materials. Some years ago the evoluted woman decided that thick, rough materials made the most hand some gowns. But she learned, also, that these gowns were entirely too heavy for her slender figure and that their pleasing effect was counterbal anced by the lines of care which their weight added to her face. Heavy gowns were laid aside and light ones worn. Smooth materials are pretty only when perfectly fresh. With a sigh of dis- THE NOVEMUER BRIDE. satisfaction those were rejected and fine crinkled crepon took their place. For the crepon we shall forever have kindly thoughts, for to that material do we owe the heavy light dress goods to be worn during the coming season. At first crepons were very light, both in weight and appearance, gradually the material gained in thickness, yet added nothing to its weight and for a time we were perfectly satisfied. Just as we had decided that we must renounce crepons because they had been worn so long and turned our eyes to silk, the manufacturer scored a point. Heavy crepons gave him an inspiration, which resulted in his flooding our market with thick rough materials, so heavy and so handsome in appearance, yet so light in weight that one Is hardly con scious of the burden. As to colors, lit tle black will be worn. Everything will be of several colors, chameleon effects, checks and stripes, but the first will be decidedly the favorite. Skirts That Are Oddly Braided. The craze for braiding will continue, and skirts of otherwise quiet and in offensive dresses will be made elaborate monstrosities by covering and sprawl ing over them great scroll designs in braiding of a color to contrast with the dress material. One new ami nntiv dress for example, is of a dull sage green, smoom ciotn braided in rows of bright butter color, the design simu lating a pair of great triangles set at either side of the skirt, the bases of the triangles at the hem, and the apexes I high up on the hips. The sides of the ' triangles toward, the front cut the front ff of the skirt Into a queer panel effect, narrower at the foot where the corners of the triangles come near together than it is above. The effect is not pretty, buf then it's odd, and to be odd is to be in the fashion. Yet fashions, whose greatest recommendation, if not their only one, is their unusualness, are ! not long lived, and these women who must plan dresses to last in fashion ableness for a good while will be safer In avoiding free use of braid and in employing some of the many Ifeautlful spangled trimmings now offered. Bands of iridescent spangles and ribbon garni ture are combined very prettily on this pictured dress, which is made of cjark 1 green suiting. Its skirt has a narrow j stripe of the spangles near the hem, and there are two wide bands on the ! front breadth. Then the blouse waist i is banded up and down and across with : the same trimming, ornaments being placed at the corners, and is alike in back and front. The sleeves are 1 trimmed to match, and collar, belt, and I rosettes are ol the ribbon. Stunning lit- 1 tie capes are being made of heavy shawling, fringe and all. These gar ments reach well below the elbow and are finished with a practicable hood, j the fringe making a finish all about. New Devices In Itmllco Trimming. All sorts of tab effects are being added to the fronts of bodices, and some of them hang down as far as tho knee. These either make a woman seem older, or else demurely pretending that she is older. Not all of them have this effect, and in moderation the style is becoming. But there should be nc need of taking risks with such devices, because so many novel forms of orna- mentation are available. Their num ber and variety constitute strong praise ror the dressmakers' ingenuity, and ! give a chance for every one to be suit ed. One of these odd devices Is em ployed on the bodice shown to-day, Which is part of a costume intended for ; a miss of about 20. Of navy blue suit Ing, the fitted bodice has a center box- ' plait of spangled insertion, the back being cut bias. But the unusual feature lies in the pleated tabs of blue silk i that are placed at the shoulders in j front. They are ornamented with silk buttons, and belt and collar are of navy blue satin ribbon. Two rows of heavy j stitching are the skirt's only ornamen- ' tation. Many wide collar effects are prouueeu in linen and white muslin. A I wide sailor collar at the back is fin- j ished with two long points in front that j fit down to the waist line. In natural j linen color openworked in white, the effect is charming. Such collars are now being worn with stuff dresses and 1 bid fair to be accepted as a correct em- i bellishment to winter gowns. For the throat all sorts of delicious affairs ap pear, and the ruffs arc so hich that i when in hand it appears impossible that j any ordinary woman can havo nooU enough for them. Yet when they are on they prove so well cut and so soft that one is inclined to venture that they can't be made too high. Despite the new fashions, a great many new dresses are seen with the full, loose front bodice that came in last season. . w. R.
