COMMON JUSTICE, THAT'S ALL.
There is no famine in this country and
no lack of the necessities of life. The
field's- bave iïèver produced more abund
antly. There is no scarcity of food,
but there is a scarcity of money with
which to buy it. Perhaps a fairer way
of putting it is that the supply of mon
cy is apparently curtailed because of
its decreased buying power. It's a ease
of the Aost of living being higher pro
portionately than the earning capacity
of the average person. No law can suc
ceed the law of supply and demand,
and the less law we have affecting our
households the better off we will be;
but something can be done to preserve
a parellel between prosperity and prices,
to keep the producer and the consumer
in closer touch and, in those eastern
centers where food is cornered by stor
age concerns, to draw a line at fair
profits—making them liberal at that.
All this can be done by application of
the fundamentals bound, up in one
•word—' ' justice. ' '—Capital News.
BET CONGRESS BREAK
THE FUEL FAMINE
The high price of coal and the coal
famines in some states ought to in
terest people in water power develop
ment.
The seizure of oil lands by the gov
ernment and federal prosecutions to
restrict oil production adds to the cost
of fuel.
Water power development in the west
is also held up by the failure of con
gress to provide legislation to allow
capital to enter this field.
Conservation policies dictated by the
eastern theorists seem to have a stran
gle hold on the west and the whole na
tion.
The presidents of four transcontinen
tal railroads have just been inspecting
the electrified mountain divisions of
the C. M. & St. P. railroad with an eve
to electrifying the roads.
Congress should release the electric
power, heat and light in the wasting
water powers—that would be real con
servation of coal and oil.
The Shields bill applies to many
parts of the country and parts of the
west.
Tho Ferris bill as amended in the
senate has many objections but would
be better than no legislation on water
powers.

Influence of Far Countries
In Our Modem Dress
Furnish Inspiration
ACCESSORIES SEEN IN THE STORES
New York, December 27, 1916. —
osmopolitan New York grows more
cosmopolitan daily. Even us her doors
are open to those from the most distant
parts of the world, so are the minds of
her fashion designers open to receive
ideas from the four corners of the earth.
Whatever may be turned to good ac
count is quickly utilized and brought
before the public for the world of fash
ionable woman to pass on. •
The very latest influence in dress has
come from the far east. Japanese and
Chinese embrodicries and like effects
have come in for recognition and have
taken quite an important position in the
world of fashion.
Showing tho Oriental Influence.
Many of the windows of the best
shops are now displaying the real Japa
nose and Chinese garments with their
rick silks and gorgeous colorings. Most
of us, however, are content to admire
these beautiful costumes in the windows.
No one has yet appeared on Fifth ave
nue arrayed in the true costume from
the land of the cherry blossom. But
many have been seen in costumes show
ing the Oriental influence, such as the
sketch above illustrates.
Another country from which has
come inspiration for some of the present
styles in Spain. The red and black com
bination worn by the dark-eyed senor
itas of that country is frequently used
with charming effect, especially iu semi
evening gowns. From Spain also have
come the beautiful fine lace scarfs or
mantilas which are now fashionable,
and the large combs for the hnir which
are used with the coiffucr that is dis
tinctly Spanish.
It is well known that from Russia,
also, we have received a great many con
tributions to the styles, not only in the
line of blouses and dresses, but in the
Russian turbans raised high in front.
Some of the turbans are worn with
chin straps, or ' ' brides, ' ' to which a viel
is often attached.
The Russian blouse dress, with a long
blouse reaching to the knee and falling
over a pleated skirt, is one of the best
liked stylos of the season. Sometimes
it is made with a high close-fitting col
lar, and again, the open neck with the
becoming sailor collar is used with it.
With the high collar and dosing at the
side, these dresses give very much the
impression of a suit. It has been ob
served of late that such dresses giving
the appearance of suits have been very
much worn at afternoon functions. A
waist with a short peplum sometimes
gives this effect, especially when the
dress is developed in velvet, velours, or

Accessories of Dress.
Now that it is the holiday senson,
all the dainty feminine accessories in
every form are displayed to the greatest
advantage in the stores. Bags of all
descriptions there are, for those are con
sidered a very necessary addition to the
wardrobe in these days. Bags of velvet,
suede, ribbon and beads are seen in such
a variety of colors and shapes that no
one can possibly have any difficulty in
selecting those that will harmonize with
her costumes. Of black velvet with a
band of Paisley placed at the bottom or
in the center, are some very attractive
round bangs finished with long silk tas
sels. Others show Chinese embroideries
in gold and colors. The bead embroid
ered bags of silk and velvet are still
popular. Silver mesh begs are also
worn.
J
Distinctly Russian in Effect.
Beaded girdles, ostrich fans wihch
are used for winter'balls and operas and
which come in all colors to match the
gowns with which they are used, anil
dainty neckwear are only a few of the
tempting accessories on display.
Lace neckwear with high collars and
long flowing jabots is again in style,
and those who never were able to wear
the low collar becomingly now have the
chance to revel in these. But the low
collars are still numerous, made of fine
linen, batiste, Georgette and net, em
broidered ever so daintily and edged
with lace for further decoration.
Lingerie was never so irrestible as
it is now. Of sheerest Georgette crepe
and silk voile in delicate colors are gar
ments of every type. Fine embroidered
underwear, of course, is always correct.
Wash satin and crepe de Chine are more
favored than, ever for lingerie materials.
A noted writer once suid: "Young
men think that old men are fools. Old
men know that young men are fools."
Ia which case, b'gad, wo must be a
pussel of darned fools.

THE NASTY WOODTICK.
The nasty woodtick's back again
To scatter spotted fever,
At least, that's what they say he does.
But I'm an unbeliever
He used to Vie a welcome guest
In homes that wore more scattered;
Tho chap that entertained him first
Felt highly flattered.
He was the surest, surest sign
Of summer in the making,
You'd never doubt his presence long.
Not that he was fakiilg.
It used to make the youngsters glad
To feel his creepy, creeping;
He brought them dreams of swimming
time
And bare boys gaily leaping.
But now they fear him, flee from him.
No biding place he's finding;
I sometimes long to spoijk to him
And ask if he's minding.
The human race has tired of him
And placed him on a ban-kin,
But if he scatters dread disease
lie caught it first from man-kin.
