(Written for The United Press.) In Bahia, Brazil, The fashions are nil Eaeh weurs what she will And it’s “commo il faut” still. Some beads and a shawl Arc quite jaunty withal; And a smile’s very nice For they never have ice. BAHIA, Brazil, Aug 8.— (By mail to New York).—There are 3(15 churches in Brazil and it looks like some of tho Bahia belles number their skirts by the sacred edifices. Paris and New York have nothing on Bahia belles when it comes to that "hoops, my dear” effect. The women seem to run to skirts, whereas the men must run after them. This bouffant nether effect, top ped off with a nifty little combing jacket and a gayly huod shawl draped carelessly over the left shoulder is considered a toilette do luxe in Bahia. The styles are a bit extreme in this Brazilian port, however, w here some petticoats seem numberless, yet again some seem to number less than nothing. Their motto seems to bo "Jf you mugt do it, go the limit.” If you must skirt the proprieties do a good job and call it a dozen. If you must wear a hat, wear a hat. The Bohemian bonnet certain ly makes our alleged picture of gar den hat or erstwhile Merry Widow look like u pill box. Even in motoring. these huge straw or shirred chiffon hats are vaunted and flaunted. On the other hand, or rather, itead, a bandanna suffices, or the week’s wash or the family firewood, i even saw one wwing a neatly balanced coffin. ’T would seem that everything goes to tbo head In Bahia—even the fauna. A chic and very popular effect in an afternoon tat is an osier basket heaped high with green bananas. Where have we anything on the Bahian belles with our fruit trim med chapeaux of this summer I'd like to know? The fruit woman on the corner, with, her iruit basket piled high with mangoes, pineapples and or anges knows not the terrors of a milliner's bill. She deftly hoists her stock in trade end in basket on the top of her coiffure and moves on to the next stand, or rather, squat. The color line is drawn neither in fashions nor in families in Bahia. J Out of c population ot about 200, 000, about 150,000 aro fast black and the rest a bit shady. They seem especially adapted to mourning ef fi'cij* and e> en the babies are n>atc|i.

OITI.INfl) \ IMWHiKYM i ii \t w ii.i. m: mkml sue**"* of tlir 1 miertaking IN'ieml Wholly » |H*n the Sale of "«.1 um Tickets in illume. The question is often a.Red, 'till I we ever have ano’her Ive ura four-’* in Waxahai hie?" Realizing the need of Mich a course a committee ha-^ had the matter under consideration and lias decided to bring It here if the people want it bad enough to uupport It. The only wav t-> finance tile course is by the advance sale of season tickets. If the tickets can be sold we. will have one of tin* best courses that has ever been* put in any town. The committee believes that the only kind of a course that will suc seed is one of the very highest type and they have acted accordingly, se lecting the cream of talent of two bureaus. Huch talent will cost more then some that could be secured, but with the season ticket plan it is |>os r.ibie for us to have something that we could never have otherwise. After much careful consideration tho following attractions have been select cd: 1. —The Othedral Choir of nine people. A stronger organization than the Haydn chorus which ap | peared at the Chautauqua last sea son. 2. —Sylvester A. Long, leotlurer. who will take for his subject, ‘'Hun gry People.’ He argues . that what a man is depends upon what he wants, how- much of a man he is de pends upon haw earnestly lie wants lit, and that man changes only thru [the transformation of his desire. It is a great message to young and old. It gives a man a new hold on life. No. 3. The Chimes of Norman dy. No comment need be made up on this number. Kvery one knows of this splendid comic opera, one of the most famous in all the world. Such a number has never been brought over the lyceum and some predicted no ordinary course could finance it. But it is coming just tbo same. It will be presented to the people by a strong cast beauti fully costumed and with the correct scenery. No. 4. Kckuku’s Hawaiian Quin tet. They play their native instru ments and sing the sweet, soothing Hawaiian songs, also many of the popular airs of this country and classical and operatic numbers. They are strictly artists, every one of them. Mr. Kokuku is the odginator o'" the method of guitar playing known as the “Steel method,” and produces that delicate, plaintive tone, lulling in its sweetness. It is this man that has made the Hawaiian instrumental music world famous. This number is going to c«.st an enormous sum but it is the belief of the committee that it is not too good for Waxahachle md they believe that the people will be there. No. 5. The Davenny Festival Quintette. Some of the best singers oil the American platform. They will give "The Bohemian Girl." iu cc stume. You can readily see that this pro gram is made up of the cream. It i.- going to take co-operation on the pert of all to put it on but we do not fear any thing in Waxahachie. The season tickets will be on sale in the very near future at $2.50 Rut for this price they must be pur chased before October 20th. After that time they will be $3.00. The single admission will he seventy-five cents except for tho lecture, which will lie fifty cents. The course will be held at Sims library. There is no doubt that the auditorium wil/ ed up with the sable garments at the slightest bereavement. For the short trousered and short I skirted, young socks are quite the rage and a neat aud original touch is obtained by wearing the Roston garter in the open. The scented aud gold tipped ci- I garettes of our effete New York and London Lady Nicotines are spurned in ilRhia. Here again their motto j prevails. If you must smoke, smoke a real smoke. Hence, short black cigars and fat black pipes are smok ed by the smoked sirens of Bahia. As for us 1’. S maids as we took launch back to tile good ship Verdi,' nest of us were wearing marmoset fur in the rough so very rough in deed that this morning we were i wearing marmoset bites. These tiny iittle chattering monkeys are exter-1 initiated as pests in Bahia or else sold to guileless tourists for a dol lar apiece. The tourists ail bite and so do the marmosets. Thus do we bear away the mark of Bahia simply b yea Trying Bahian I inonk-v business on b.*a? l. TRACING ^ A every line of the body, carefully gloss ing o\er any irregularities of figure, fitting perfectly at >-very point; that is what you may expect of our made to measure clothes. But that is but one of their points of superiority.

The Lyceum is one of the most i beneficial things a city can offer the people. Its educational value can not be denied, in fact, we coitl'i not very well do without , ur Chau tauqua and lyceuni. any more than we could do without our school. . 1 is to be hoped that when the tickets are placed on sale they will be sold readily.
