If not the month of weddings, j at least the month when the fascinating j garments for the trousseau are dis- j i played. i i A traveling costume which I saw not | ' lonj; ago was shown with all the things! necessary for a trip across the eon- , tinent or for European travel. The suit was of a very finely-twilled gray covert cloth, a fabric which is both stylish and serviceable. The jacket", made with ( raglan sleeves, had a back slightly fitted and flaring below the waistline. The front was the unusual and dis tinctive feature of the jacket. It might be called surplice, for the right-front buttoned with cloth buttons diagonally over the left side, and at the waist line it was extended into a tab, which buttoned again beneath the arms. Braid 1 was used at the sides, on the back and ; on the sleeves. The collar was n round- 1 ing affair which reached around the ] back and the sides, with the rounding , part in the front. The plain skirt, in two pieces, had the front cut with an extended tab to correspond with the tab on the jacket. mm m n |A viiFr V A Rose Colored Linen With the New Smart Bolero and the Flaring, Pleated Skirt With this suit was shown a trim little turban of straw the same color as the suit, but with gay double wings of rose color placed directly on top of the hat. These divided so that one of the wings went on one side and one on the other. A pair of high gray kid shoes that laced up the side instead of up the front and had narrow black patent leather tips was displayed to go with this costume. Batiste and handkerchief linen with inch-wide strines of blue, gray, laven der, green, pink, or yel!ow r and white are extensively vised for tailored shirt waists # and are a decidedly smart inno vation after the vogue for plain colors. Therefore, the bride may select one, or two, of these striped waists to go with her traveling suit unless a plain colored voile, crepe de Chine, or chiffon would be more useful. These are also smart and often more serviceable. A very stylish linen suit for the bride, or for others who are adding to their wardrobe, may be seen in the illustra tion. Rose-coiored linen is the material from which the suit is fashioned. These new. long-sleeved bolero are often closed only at the collar and a but ton or two below the neck-line, from which point they flare open in the ap proved manner. Beneath the jacket one glimpses a dainty blouse of sheer linen. The skirt, pleated and stitched at the waist and hips, is made with wide tucks at the bottom. A sailor hat with simple trimming is the accompaniment of this costume. A frock which will be a standby in any woman's wardrobe is of sand-col ored twilled taffeta. The bodice is full, with a high white organdy collar, which openß and flares in the front: this gives it the name of the Henry Clay collar. The sleeves are set in and rather full, having -wide cuffs flaring over the hands. The many-gored skirt is very plain, but bears the earmarks of the latest cut. An evening dress is made of change able green taffeta, with a bodice round ing low, in front and back, and edged with a pleated frill of fringed taffeta. Following the line of the neck are sev eral buttonholed slits, through which is drawn a lavender ribbon. This ties in the front in a large lover's knot, is in , visibly tacked to the waist and has the ends finished with tassels of flowers, which hang free. The taffeta skirt slashed to the waistline on one side over a chiffon underskirt, is edged all the way around with black, while through ' the slashes, a few inches above the bot ; A NOTRE DAME LADY'S APPEAL To alt knowing sufferers ol rheumatism, whether muscular or of the Joints, sciatica, lumbagos, backache, pains in the kidneys or neuralgia pains, to write to her for a home i treatment which has repeatedly cured all of these tortures.

Outlet Through Skin Pores • Pimples, sores and boils usually re sult from toxins, poisons and impurities which are generated In the bowels and then absorbed into the blood through the very ducts which should absorb only nourishment to sitstaiu the body. It is the function of the kidneys to filter impurities from the blood aud j cast them out iu the form of urine, but | in many instances the bowels create more toxins 'and impurities than the 1 kidneys can eliminate, then the blood ! uses the skin pores as the next best ' means of getting rid of these impurities < which often break out all over the skin in the form of pimples. The surest way to clear the skin of these eruptions, says a noted authority, is to get from any pharmacy about four ounces of Jad Salts and take a tablespoonful in a glass of hot water each morning before breakfast for one week. This will prevent the formation tif toxins in the bowels. It also stimu lates the kidneys to normal activity, bus coaxing them to filter the blood of impurities and clearing the skin of pimples. Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless and is made from the acid of grapes and 1 ' lemon juice, combined with llthia. Here ! j you have a pleasant, effervescent drink 1 ; which usually makes pimples disappear: I cleanses the blood and is excellent for | the kidneys as well.—Adv. torn, is drawn lavender ribbon, which i ends on either side of the stash with a j large bow-knot and flower-tasseled ends. ; For afternoon frocks, verv large polka! dots are very smart and new. Cream, white, and ecru, dotted with red, green, blue, or lavender dots are seen. These dots are widely spread and sometimes are as large as a dollar. N ! A striking costume is made with a blue polka-dotted skirt with fullne-»s held in at the waistline, trimmed with two scant ruffles on the lower edge. A waist in Eton effect is of plain ecru silk, matching in color the background of the polka-dotted material. A natural colored leghorn hat, trimmed with blue velvet ribbon and pink roses, is worn with this dress. A simple dress of striped linen is shown in the second illustration with a V-shaped front, filled in with an or gandy vest and collar. The bell sleeves are faced back with white organdy, and the sleeve turned up a trifle to give a cuff effect. The full skirt is pleated at the waist without the pleats being pressed in at the lower edge. A hat in seuii-poke-bonnet effect goes with the dress charmingly. The collar-and-cuff sets are very use ful to wear with simple frocks, and many a dress not quite up-to-date can be made so with the addition of one of these sets, in linen, organdy or Georgette crepe. The material and the type of collar-and-cuff set to be appro priate depend on the style of the dress. An Effective Striped Linen, With Or gandy Vest and the New Bell Sleeves, Showing the Turned Back Cuff Very fashionable is a wide Colonial collar, with gauntlet cuffs to match. A Henry Clay set is made of stiffened voile or organdy, flaring up about the chin, with points turned over a trifle in front. The cufl's to accompany this col lar are cut to flare top and bottom. The ribbon accessories which are worn this year are unusually attractive. Very wide ribbon is fashioned into belts about eight or nine inches wide, having tiny pockets on either side of the front. Girdles are made of wide ribbon, with narrow ribbon pleated and placed all around the edges. Another very hand some girdle was corded five times and finished at the top with a frill of the ribbon. Still another girdle of large figured ribbon in shades of pink and white was edged around with a narrow black velvet ribbon. Down the center of the front the ribbon was placed back and forth, crossing each other as though it wer>e a lacing. Another basque-like girdle has straps over the shoulder and iB made to come to a point in front, where the closing is finished with eye lets and laced. Sermons at First Baptist The Rev. W. S.

LOTS READY FOR PLANTING Technical High School Seniors Lay Out Benevolent Association's Garden No. 1 Thirty-seven lots, to be assigned early net week to families making ap plication to the Harrisburg Benevolent Association, are to-day ready for planting. They comprise Workers' Gar den No. 1 at Thirteenth street near Sycamore. The second garden is now being ployed at Twelfth and ('aider streets. Seven Technical High school seniors yesterday afternoon surveyed Garden No. 1 and are making a blue print of it. They laid it out into lots 25 by 100 feet. The boys worked under the direction of Professor Wolf of the Technical faculty. John E. Dare and J. B. Montgomery each contributed the services of a team of horses and a driver, while D. M. Shearer, of Sycamore street, gave the use of the necessary implements, with the result that the more than four-acre plot was speedily brought into condi tion for planting. LEGAL FALLACIES Ancient Superstitions That Tenacious ly Cling to Life On the subject of "Some Popular Legal Superstitions," Case and Com ment says that there are many miscon ceptions of legal doctrines, usually tenaciously held ami sometimes rashly acted upon to the client's undoing, some of which are so grotesquely dis torted that it is difficult to trace them to their origin. One of the most widely spread, but fortunately harmless of these is that in order that a will disin heriting an heir may be valid he must be "cut oft' with a shilling." This no tion is erroneous, but Blackstone finds I a foundation for it in the civil law I and Isays: "The Romans were also wont to set aside testaments as being inofficiosa, | deficient in natural duty, if they disin- l herited or totally passed by (without assigning a true, sufficient reason) any i of the children of the tpstator. But if i the child had any legacy, though ever so small, it was proof that the testator ! had not lost his memory or reason, 1 which otherwise the law presumed, ' but was then presumed to have acted j thus from substantial cause. Hence, ! probably has arisen t'.iat groundless vulgar error of the necessity of leav- ! ing an heir a shilling or some other ex- j press legacy, in order to disinherit him ! effectually." Another erroneous idea, quite gener- j ally entertained is that a signature :s 1 not binding unless written in ink. I Still another curious notion enter- | tained in some localities is that an j eye witness may not testify to any oc currence seen by him "through glass." This is probably attributable to the ! fact that the imperfections of ancient window glass might deceive the on \ looker as 16 what actually took place. ; The writer recalls an instance adduced 1 by his instructor in physics while lee- : turing on the refraction of light of I a window paue in his house through j ; which passersby on the opposite side ' of the square appeared on coming op posite to a church, to leap over the 1 steeple. A condition this sort brought out on cross-examination might effect the weight though not the admissibility of the evidence. Witness My Hand In the early days only u few scholars I knew how to write. It was then cus- I tomary to sign a document by smear | ing the hand with ink and impressing j it upon the paper, accompanied by the words, "Witness my hand." After ward the seal was introduced as a sub stitute for the hand mark'and was used with the words above quoted, the two forming the signature. This is the ori gin of the expression as used in modern documents.

LINCOLN'S KIND HEART It Showed Itself in His Aversion to the Death Penalty It is related that one day a man cauio to Lincolfi with a sad tale. Uii son hail been sentenced to death, an only son, too. Lincoln said kindly: "I am sorry 1 can do nothing foi von. Listen to this telegram I re ceived from General Butler yesterday,' and he read the following: " 'President Lincoln—l pray vot not to interfere with the courts inartia of the army. You will destroy all disci plino among our soldiers.' " Lincoln watched the old man's grief for a minute and then exclaimed: "By jingo! Butler or no Butler, here goes! " Then ho wrote: "Job White is not to oe shot until further orders from me." "Why," said the old man sadly, "1 thought it was a pardon. You may or der him shot next week." "My old friend'' replied Lincoln "I see you aro not* very well acquaint ed with me. Jf your son never dies til orders come from me to shoot him he will live to be a great deal older than Methuselah.'' One day a woman, accompanied by a Senator, called on President Lincoln The woman was the wife of one ol Mosby's men. Her husband had been captured, tried and condemned to be shot. She came to ask for the pardon of her husband . Lincoln heard hei story and then asked what kind of a husband her husband was. "Is he intemperate; does he abuse the children and beat youf" asked the President. "No, no," said the wife. "He is a good man, a good husband; lie loves md and he loves the children, and we caaj not. live without him. The only trouJ ble is that he is a fool about politics] I live in the North and was born I there, and if I get him home he will do no more lightii (; for the South." "Well," saiil Lincoln, after examj ining the papers, "1 will pardon him and turn him over to you tor safekeep ing." The womnn. overcome with joy, be gan to sob as though her heart would break. "My dear woman," said Lincoln, I "if T had known how badly it was go -1 ing to make vo < feel I never would have pardoned him " "You do not understand me," sli« I cried between sobs. | "Yes. yes, I do," answered Lincoln, /'And if you do not go away at oncd | T shall be crying with you." !(f BEAUTIFUL " HERSHEY PARK With its acres of lawns, shade i trees, its flower beds, free zoo and children's playground, is the ideal place for your picnic.
