"A, great advantage lies in the fact that plain ribbons are used In conjunction with the brocaded patterns and the heavy texture -of the brocades -"(especially those haring metal threads) - gives body; as well as brilliance ito this sea son's bags. These brocades are found in the me dium and narrow widths. . They com bine to advantage 'with plain soft satin ribbons for many reasons.

Although the ribbons used are expensive, only small quantities are necessary, and there is hardly any other gift embody ing so much elegance for as little money, as these luxurious bags. The bag at the left of the picture Is made of a rich brown satin ribbon, about five inches wide, stitched to a strip of gold and brown brocaded rib bon in which many shades of brown and tan appear, and there is a liberal mixture of gold flowers. The flat de sign of the cosmos blossom I& cleverly handled In this ribbon. These brocad ed ribbons are marvels of weaving. In them artists use the loom and- silk as other artists usethe brush and paint The plain ribbon used is a frame for the fabric picture. . The three strips of ribbon, machine stitched together,- are cut in a length twice that of the bag, with an allow ance'for turning back two inches at each end. ' The ends with this two- inch. hem are machine stitched in two parallel rows forming a casing for the narrow ribbon of heavy satin that is run in to form the drawing string. A bolt of No. 2 (or even a little wider) satin ribbon of . first-class qual ity la required to make the hanger, the rosettes and .pendant ends which decorate the bag at each side. ' In shades of purple"," lavender, and light greeK with a touch of white, the second bag is also made of three strips of ribbon, machine stitched together The brocaded strip shows a pale gray ground with -white border and a blurred . design of flower petals and foliage in heliotrope, lavender -and green. . - j The bottom of the bag Is made.ot a dish of cardboard "covered with the figured ribbon. It" Is' five inches In di ameter. The .length of ribbon made ot three strips (two plain, and one 'fig ured) runs around the bag, and the edge, ot one strip is gathered to . the covered dish. . At the top of the bag a two-inch hem, with parallel rows of stitching, to form a casing, accommo dates a small length of round elastic. This forms the mouth of the bag. ' Heavy satin ribbon an ' inch wide, in the same shade as .that of the plain satin ribbon in the bag, is used for the hangers or handles. Narrower satr In ribbon in the same color and shade, provides the Tosettes at the side. This is a lovely opera bag, suitable, too, to be worn with a visiting gown. It Is less expensive than bags in which brocaded ribbons are used, for the fig ured ribbon may be either a printed or "wo ven-in" design. The third bag is a splendid bit ot finery in which plain gold-colored sat in ribbon and a narrow gold brocade (showing a surface almost entirely of metal threads) are combined to make an opera bag. The cord is of gold col ored satin-covered cable cord, and might be effectively replaced with the regular metalic cords which are shown for this and similar purposes. The narrow brocaded ribbon is cut in the required lengths (enough for both sides of the bag), and joined bj pipings of the plain gold colored satin A bottom for the bag is. made by cov ering an oblong, piece of cardboard about two and a quarter Inches wide with the plain ribbon. A mirror in serted here adds to the attractiveness of the bag. ; Both top arid bottom of the bag are bound with the-brocaded ribbon, ma chine stitched to place. Machine stitching is a factor in. the shapeliness of these bags. The covered bottom is finally sewed in and the cord hangers sewed to position. This is one of the most fascinating of the new designs, any one of which will make a beautiful gift for Christ mas time. JULIA BOTTOM LEY. - , ' -4 Religion the I iV ; Supreme H f I Th ? ' Br REV. J.

Two elements of religion only here appear, that which is broadly called charity, which with many Is nothing more than al truism, and separation from the world, which has been designated re cently as aloofness. In religion there Is something that Is posItlve,lt must go beyond kind deeds to the needy, and retirement from the world.

WHY THEY WON. The sporting writer of a large east ern dally tells cf the first notable vic tories won by American athletes over those of England. An English team had come to New York for an easy time in maintaining their old-time su periority over all other nations. The evening before the opening of the events a few of the Americans dropped into the British headquarters and were astonished to find several of them sip ping ale. In reply to their expres sions of surprise the Englishmen pro tested: "Oh, we always drink ale, but not much of it" In the ensuing con tests Great Britain was badly beaten. Sportsmen in the tight little isle are now speaking seriously of the United States' rise in the athletic world, and wav resnectful to the elements of re- are beginning to admit that the Amer- lleion Just presented; but we desire lean systsm of no intoxicants and no Fanciful Trimming on Hats of Velvet.

BY WAY of variety some odd, new trimmings placed In odd new posi tions, have been devised for the latest of the new velvet hats. Rich velvet In black and in colors holds its own aathe overwhelming favorite of the season. But, to keep from having too much of even a very good thing, it has becdme necessary for milliners to de vise oddities in trimmings. . A soft and becoming hat has a drooping brim covered with Velvet and laced with satin: A very full puffed crown, much larger than the average soft crown, is draped so that it, fall3 over the brim at the back in the fash ion of a cap. It is a clever and effec tive arrangement. The crown i3 supported at the front,' so that it stands quite high. And here one of'the oddest of f eathersi in fandy , ostrichi is placed.

We would not do this be cause we Ignore community life, but because reaching the Individual lives that make the community we reach the community in a way that is In flnltelv more satisfactory than by reaching it in its corporate capacity, We would not confuse any individual by calling his attention to religion as supreme in the community, but as su preme in himself, The first reason for this Is that God commands It as In the text an nounced, as creator, preserver, dally benefactor and guarantor of blessings on man, the value of which cannot be measured. This right of God to com manri is denied bv many, and not even a word of thanksgiving for the daily blessings of life, nor a prayer for their continuance is heard, ex cept from very few. The universal , belief In the Immor tality of the soul of man - puts em phasis on the value of the perma nnt. Relision directly affects the permanent. It emphasizes that which in hevnnd this- life, vet one of the " j - a strange things of human experience is that multitudes come to the) end of life as if there was nothing be yond. The old prophet's "prepare to meet thy God" Is not a mere matter of historical interest. It should ring in the ears of every living man and woman. After death there is judg ment annointed of God, and the Judge has likewise been . appointed But what are the issues of judgment? In short, heaven and hell. Yet ow cynically these great facts are thought of and spoken about, but religion pro vides for the winning of the one, and escaping the other. If heaven and hell are myths, there must be a re vision not only of the teachings of Jesus Christ and his apostles, but of the moral philosophy of all the ages If these great facts of the beyond were a more, permanent s. element In the evangel of the day, that evangel would be far more effective, Another reason why. religion should be supreme is that the worry of men and women over the things of small importance would , disappear. In close connection with -this text Jesus i spoke of the anxious care for food j and clothing.' That is what is eating j out the life of : multitudes tolay, J something entirely unnecessary.

Bellalre, Ohio, has been without sa loons for nearly five years. Accord ing to the argument of the "wets" It should by this time the "dead asa door nail." But "nowhere in the Ohio valley," the Wheeling Intelligencer tells us, can be found a busier or live lier town than Bellalre. This fact Is plainly demonstrated every Saturday night. All the stores along the main streets were so crowded that progress was almost impossible. One merchant1 stated that the crowd in hiB store was so large the he, assisted by his corps of clerks, could scarcely accommodate them. This city is now on a straight and rapid road of progress, and In a few years will undoubtedly be the foremost city of the valley. The peo ple are becoming aware of the fact that the money spent at home builds up the town and makes it a better place to live in. DRIVER OR DRINKSHOP? A Chicago coroner gives it a" his opinion the result of his experience with Joy-riding accidents that men who are out all night drinking whis ky and beer should not be trusted to drive automobiles. If there Is no law, he says, under which a drunken chauffeur can be locked up, the city council had better get busy and make one. How would It be to lock up the places which make drunken drivers? Why not outlaw the thing, which makes the men Incapable. of handling a machine? The people of Chicago or any other city can do it. They can see to it that no automobile fatality is caused by drink. It's up to the voter to "get, busy." ' NEW USE FOR GARBAGE!. It is a matter of general knowledge that whisky and beer are' made from all kinds of' mill and factory refuse.
