A large dark Girl. Her hair In two long braids; her dress dark crimson, with a full skirt, a rather loose waist, cut slightly round at the neck and with no sleeves, but with the drapery falling over her rms. She sits at a low table, side to the audience, and looks up at a rabbi, a very tall dark man. dressed in flowing robes of deep blue with a border and girdle with ends, a long cray wig and large beard. He holds a roll, its top beginning at his shoul der. Its end falling to the floor, made like a narrow map oa rollers. This represents the Talmud. (See the pic tures Id an illustrated Old Testament.) 2. Listening To Homer. This Is a copy of Alma Tadenia'e famous pic ture. Have some palms or other foliage at the back of the stage and a very long, white painted bench across this. At one end sits a dark, smooth-shaven young man bending forward with arm on knee, dressed in a thick tunic with a border, hold ing a roll; one arm Is on the back of the bench. Two girls alt opposite listening to him. They are dressed in white tunics over full skirts. The tunics are cut round at the neck and fastened at the shoulders with clasps. They should wear their hair parted, with a Psyche knot; gilt ribbons are wound around the head. 3. The Children of Alfred The Great. Alfred had a son and daugh ter whom he educated carefully. The girl may sit. on a low) stool, with a huge parchment book open on another stool In front The boy stands at the back, facing the audience, looking down at her.

Have the stage lighted with very tall candles In tall dark hold ers. 4. Marguerite of Navarre. Three young women sit about the room em broidering; spare frames covered with some tapestry chair-cover I tig may rest on music stands made rather low. They wear dresses of soft colors made perfectly plain, with long tightly-fitted sleeves; their hair is flowing; on their heads are, first, short veils, then tall, pointed caps of folded col ored paper, from the tip of each of which hangs a very light little tulle veil. These enps should be about two feet high and worn so that they point backward. Marguerite wears a violet-colored dress exactly like the rest, but with a long mantle fastened at the shoulders with clasps; this Is of dark velvet or brocade, with a rich border made by sewing oa tinsel. Her dress, like the rest, has a small square neck, but hers has a rich bor der hore, also. On her head Is, first, a very short thin veil, then a gilt crown with little clover leaves stand ing up. A white band passes under her cbln, fastening It on. She holds a great book, one half falling down to show that It Is Illuminated (this Is dona by washing In some large letters In color). The room should have low benches with pillows, and a chair or two with fur rugs thrown over them. 5. Lady Jane Grey. Have a large light window frame made, long and low, with two casements opening out. Simulate glass lit leaded panes in these by tacking on tabes at top and bottom. Put up this window at tin back of the stage, with Bome green outside to hide the curtains, and make a window seat beneath with pillows. Lady Jane sits here, with books about her, looking out She wears a soft, full gray dress with long, tight sleeves. The neck of the dress is cut very low, down to the shoulders, and a white tucker is put inside nearly to the neck line. Embroidery turns back at the edge of the gown and the wrists. Her hair is drawn back with out parting and a small, close-fitting cap edged with pearls is worn.

Paris .Would Make Popular MEN ARE TO MARCH MANY TO TAKE PART IN THE GREAT SUFFRAGE PARADE IN WASHINGTON. SHREWD MOVE BY THE WOMEN Virtually Compelled Congressmen Frem States Where Gentler 8a Votes to Participate Fsar pi In terference by Hoodlums. By GEORGE CLINTON. Washington. Washington recog nizes that It was a shrewd move which the woman suffrage leaders made when they put ths matter of participation In the parade on March 3 straight up to tbe senators and house members who represent states in which women have the right to vote. "Unless you are opposed to tbe will of the majority in your state," said the women in their letter to the con gressmen, "you will march with us and thus prove that you, liks your states, are In the van of progress." So it Is that congress will take an unofficial part In the parade of the women on the day before Mr. Wilson takes office. Some forty senators and representatives, unless they weaken st the last moment, wlU "march with banners" near the head of tho pro cession, although It is possible that some of them will march laggard' legged. Other men will march with tb women and some of them will be be lievers and others unbelievers. In the suffrage cause and the reasons for their participation will be as wide apart as the reasons for their belief or unbelief. Some of the men have taken seriously the stories that trou ble may occur along the line of march and that blackguards may insult the women or attempt some physical di version against the peace of the pro cession. There is apparently no real basis for this fear, but It holds tenac iously with some men and so a part of them will march by their wives, daughters or sisters, for purposes of protection only, while others will march to show that their heart Is for suffrage and that man must do his part to make perfect the parade show Ing and to give suffrage a male en dorsement Some Scorn Male Escort Some of the women who will march have told their husbands and their brothers and their sons that they can not march. In fact there are many "male members of famlles" who want to take part, and who have beenfor bidden. The women who are averse to the appearance of tbe other sex as defenders of the paradesayi th-t If , women Is ablo to vote and to IfA'i her share of government, she Is alfle to march along Pennsylvania avenge without a nard-flsted escort 8everal army women will have a place in the cavalry division of the suffrage parade. These women know how to ride and moreover they have the service course. It Is said that it there Is any attempt to Interfere with the peace and comfort of the march' ers, these army women on their train- ed mounts will go to the front and do some "riding down." The women of the bunt clubs will go to the front with them. It Is Inconceivable that any attempt will be made to Interfere with this parade. The un-American lrm df interference Is enough to dis arm fear In advance, but some of the elements In the community opposed to suffrage have been doing their best through the press and otherwise to make It appear that hoodlums will "move to the attack." If anything of the kind Is done a lot of people who bold themselves respectable will be responsible. Fight on Colorado City Bill. The supporters of conservation, un der federal management, the, "militant preservationists," aa they are called. are conducting a campaign either to secure the final defeat in congress of a plan to turn over to the city of Colo rado 8prings some thousands of acres of government laud, or to try to Induce President Taft to Intervene with bis veto as bo did last summer in tb case of a water river dam bill, which was opposed by the conservationists When the bill giving the city of Colorado Springs control and use of some thousands of acres of ths south erly, easterly and northerly slopes vt Pike's Peak was up In the senato. Senator Guggenheim of Colorado suc ceeded in having struck out of It five or six words, which would give the agricultural department partnership with ths city of Colorado Springs la the control of tbe land. If the bill goes through with this omission it wlU mark a departure from precedent, for while the government has bean will ing to turn over land useful as water shed reservoirs to municipalities. It always has insisted that the depart ment of agriculture should maintain what may bo called sussrainty over the allotted tracts. There la opposition among both Democrats sod Republicans to this senate effort to give to the Colorado towa this land and to Uke It away virtually and entirely from govern ment control. The conservationists are telling congressman that this bill la but a preliminary step to ths turn ing ever of other government tracts of land to persons "who know what they want." Tbsre are many coo gressmsn, however, who have been ef some service to ths conservation move-neat, who say that "there Is i test llflorence between turning over land to a municipality for peblio use sad turninc It over to ths predatory. Interests." Tbsre probsbly will be s good deai ef a row over this Colorado Spring matter before it Is definitely settled one way or the other. The govern ment seeks to teeee v Arc! over land not only because of tbe water power wbtch there may be upon It and which eventually might be used for the pub lie benefit but because of the forest and mineral wealths which the land may contain. The conservationists say that all the possibilities of the fa tare will be given away by Unci Sam If the city of Colorado Springs Is glv en what It wants footloose from any government control. Entering Wedge Is Fssred. It Is probable, however, that the conservationists do not so much fear the results of turning the land over to a municipality as they do that so turning it will be the entering wedge for turning over other tracts to cor porations which are not municipal! ties. Not very much baa been heard of conservation at the present session of congress, but men 111; Mr. Pin ehot who have been leading the con servation crusade Id the past are standing at one side watching sharp eyed all legislation which touches tholr propaganda. The conservationists are not alto gether happy, and they say so. st the prospects of the future, but they say that they are ready to get Into the fight again as soon as congress re convenes. Once they thought they had thler fight won. but they seem to feel that there has been something of a reaction which they charge has come from misrepresentations, and that now they must go ahead with their work Just as they went ahead with It In the days following the con ference of governors st the White House at the time that Theodore Roosevelt preached to the governors the doctrine of saving the nation's natural resources. Cabinet To Be Increased. It seems to be virtually a certainty now that Woodrow Wilson will be called upon to name ten cabinet mem. bers. The increasing of the official family's size by one member will be due to the creation of a department of labor. Kverythlng points to the sign ing by President Taft before he leave office of the bill creating the new de partment, and if this should not hap pen the chances are that Mr. Wilson soon after his Inauguration, will have a chance to slga the bill on bis own account. The Democrats and the Republicans In tbelr official pronouncement as par ties both have declared In favor of a department of labor. For years rep reaentatlves of the labor Industries have urged that they be represented at the president's council table. In the past there was a good deal of op position to the creation of the new de partment. It showed itself mainly In the effort to keep the necessary legis lation from reaching tbe voting pMnt c-WJe .Washington has been goUlp- ing a good deal about president fvu son's cabinet It has been taking uots only of nine cabinet places. It is ta ken for granted that It a department of labor is authorized a representative of labor will ait Jn the cabinet. It has been suggested that John Mitchell might be the cabinet officer. Ths chances are that the president will find out either directly or Indirectly bow the majority of tbe labor leaders feel on the qualifications of this man or that man and will make his choice accordingly. Eight Hour Day Legislation. In wrltlug about labor legislation In congress the eight hour law should not be overlooked. Years ago con gress voted that eight hours should constitute a day on all government work, but it declined to sanction leg islation making the eight hour day compulsory on government work which was being done by private con cerns., So It was that when the gov ernment was building a battleship in one of its own yards it worked its men only eight hours a day, while the private ship yard building a battle ship under contract for ths govern ment worked its men ten hours s day. Labor tried Its best for a good many years to get an eight hour law which would apply in the case of govern ment work under control of private corporations. About six years ago a great d legation representing labor marched to the capitol to make im pressive by numbers its wlbh that the eight hour law should bo passed. The speaker of the house and some of the party leuders met the labor represen tntlves and talked to them, but no definite promise was made. Mads Congressmen Dodge. An wight hour law such ss labor wish once reuched the floor of the bouse by virtue of the fact that some of the members of the committee which bad the bill In Its keeping were caught napping. The Intention was to keep tho bill in committee and thus to relieve members of congress of ths necessity of voting on the measure at least until after the neit election. One of the members of tbe committee which bad the bill before It wss out of town and It was not known that he had returned. Hs was In favor of tbe measure and when he walked Into tbe committee unexpectedly one morn ing the bill was forced to a vote and in the absence of some members of the opposition a favorable report was made. This waa sent to tbe bouss. where all kinds of expedients were ne cessary to keep It from coming to vote before adjournment Just ths Name. "What's a good name for a fash lonable apartment house?" "KIb's . court. That a a toppy name." "I believe I'll Bams tt Divoree Court 1 want to get the very smartest peo Pe."

The new tea gowns promise to be very fascinating; every year they be come more and more fashionable with the elegant Parlslennes, who have got into the habit of putting them on at their afternoon tea receptions. I aaw a charming model which had been carried out In white chiffon. The skirt was particularly pretty and graceful, hanging In the softest of straight folds. Just a pretty drapery of chiffon waa wound about the arm and did duty for the sleeves of tbe bodice, which was also of white chif fon. The striking feature of this gar ment was tbe peplum of fine black chantllly lace of an exqp' 'ely grace ful design; It was studied to the back of the left shoulder, and contin ued all round to the light side of the front of the bodice. The lower part of the peplum waa left without drap ery, so that it formed a tunic. An other charming model was a study of deep orange and white; the founda tion dresa in this case was of white chiffon and quite transparent Over this was a rich Grecian drapery of deep orange-colored crepe de chine, which fell from the shoulder and was continued across the bodice. The front was carried out In artistic folds almost to the hem; they were raised half-way up the skirt at the back, and were held in place by a buckle made o orange crepe de chine.
