THE CEREDO ADVANCE.
T. T. McDOUGAL, Publisher. CEREDO. . - WEST VIRGINIA. What the Mouth Denote*. A certain philosopher declares that A woman Is known by her mouth. Not by the words that Issue therefrom, but by the shape and color of the lips, and the lines and dimples that gather about this Important feature. He Is supported In his theory by physiognomists, who All endeavor to Impress us with the lact that no woman with the small red lipped. ‘‘Cupld-bow’* mouth, so praised In song and story, was ever intel’ectua) or generous of heart; and It Is consol ing to those whose mouths are not In Accordance with the lines of beauty laid down by the poets to be told that A “wide, straight mouth, with strong white teeth” denotes the woman of su perior Intelligence, goodness of heart, strength of mind and a thousand and one other sterling qualities, which we all like to think we possess, says the New York Weekly. It Is the fashion at preeent to hold the lips very slight ly apart. This is supposed to give that Innocent, wistful, wonderful expression which was the peculiar property of the heroines of old-fashioned novels, but which bicycle riding and kindred snodnrn amusements have caused to vanish. Secretary Straus does not believe 1b Wrenching the contract labor law out of Ita legitimate function of protecting American labor. He has recently ad mitted to the United States a Cana dian girl who desired to enter a train ing school for nurses. Because nU the girls who take the training course are allowed a small compensation, she was at first denied admission, bb a contract laborer. The secretary remarks that training schools for nurses are among the most humane of educational Insti tutions, and tho fact that certain work ts required as a part of the training, and certain compensation allowed for It, does not make the student a con tract laborer. Do you chew gum? Certainly not! Why ask the unnecessary question? Put then, maybe you eat starch, which <a New York authority says is a grow ing habit and one of the most deadly of health destroyers. At all events, Young people are so nervous nowadays they must chew something, and If not gum, why then starch, which appeals to vain girls who wish to be beautiful, but It Is a pernicious appetite when once contracted. Like .every such hebit, says the Boston Herald, it is the result of a vat Vint mind. Feed the mind with thoughts worth the think ing, and girls and boys will not care to be gum chewers or starch eaters. It is always gratifying to meet a person who is contented with his lot. For that reason it would be delightful to make the acquaintance of the wom an who lately had the last word In a brief suffragist controversy. The wri ter of a sufTragist communication in a newspaper wrote, sadly, that “woman is nothing but a female relative of o man; the man is the noun, the woman Is the preposit'on.” “Well, what do J care?” was the triumphant retort. “The preposition governs the noun.” Among recently elected members to Phi Beta Kappa, the society of picked scholars, is a Harvard student named Tien Tin Chao of Tientsin, China. Two Chinese, Mr. Wen and Mr. Chen, gradu ate this month from West Point, where they have been, In a sense, guests of the United States. The students who •re to come to America as beneficiaries of the returned “Boxer Indemnity” fund will find that their countrymen bave set them a high standard in American colleges. Th* Argentine government during ihe last year hag begun the develop ment of a new petroleum field at CoDiodom Rivadavla, on the Hay of St. George, east eoairt of Patagonia. The first oil hearing stratum was found at a depth of 1,770 feet, in a cre taceous formation The government Weil yleidi 13 or 14 tons of oil per day without pumping. The oil la dark brown ar<l very heavy, and seems es pecially adapted for fuel. German explorers are malting Inter esting di scoveries on the supposed site of ancient Jericho, near the I>ead sea. having recently unco ered tbe city wall, a structure built in three parts_ a rock foundation, a body of rubble and a top of clay bricks. The wall as a whole was some thirty feet in heigiit. end although, like the wall that pro ceded it, it might hav„ fallen at the sound of Joshua’s trumpets, It appears that an ordinary assailant would bars found It hard to pass. Mr. E. A.

FASHIONS IN BABIES’ CLOTHES. Styles Closely Follow Those Adopted by the Grown-Ups. Perhaps the young mother may think that when she comes to make clolhes for her baby she won’t have to worry her head very much as to what's the fashion of the day. Perhaps she thinks that baby clothes are always the same. If she does, she is a very mistaken little lady, for clothes for the llttlcst folks show from time to time many of the innovations which make the garments for grown-ups in the mode. This Is especially so this spring. Even the long dresses for in fants show the princess and empire lines, and sleeves have diminished greatly in size. The vogue for hand embroidery is also emphasized in baby clothes; not only i3 it used on the lit tle dresses, but on the long cloaks and the dainty little flannel wrappers and sacques. It goes without saying that if baby’s mother Is the sensible little woman that she is quite sure to be. baby will have no frills and furbelows on his clothes. Simplicity is the fashion to day. And baby clothes reflect the trend of the inodes. Generally speak ing, the distinction between baby’s every day clothes and his dresses for best wear is merely in the quality of the fabric. When baby is expected to look his finest his dress is of the sheerest of nainsook, lawn or long cloth, and sometimes washable cot ton chiffon.—Woman’s Home Compan ion.

Ah a rival to the rloth of gold roK'* with It* headed renter, and the black ranze rose with It* cold rim, comes the morning glory of gauze This Ih to be worn in the hair as an ornament of the Grecian knot. It ! Is also to be tiffed, an the other flow- I ers are. In the front of the corsage for all social and evening affairs. It Is In perfect coloring and gives a charming tout h to filmy gowns of white or eream or pale blue. If a girl wonders Just what little 3?w touch she would like to have she should g« t one of these flowers. The morning glory goes with youth better Ibar tho black or tbe gold rose. TREATMENT OF CUT FLOWERS. Simple Methods by Which Freshness May Be Preserved. Few persona know that violets, car nations, etc., after they are cut re quire different care if they are to bo kept alive and fresh. Violets, for in stance. after being worn become soft and wilted. They may be made like new by clipping a short bit from the stems and putting the flowers into a glass wherein the water reaches the blossoms. The bouquet should not be cut apart Over the flowers and glass itself a piece of wax paper should be placed and twisted down tightly and the whole set in the re frigerator or out of doors if the weath er is not too cold—freezing. With this treatment the violets, unless dead, be come fresh. A girl who wenra these flowers fre quently has adopted an even simpler method of freshening. For as soon as she takes them off she plunges the hends into cold water, and then puts the bunch back in the box in which it came, covering the flowers with the wax paper always used as a liuing. The box is then put out on the win dow sill, and in the morning the blos soms are usually like new. Producing Sweet Sleep. The girl who sleeps as (hough she was suffocating will wnk«o (he ne*t morning with tired lines In her face and with circles beneath her eyes. The room must he ccol and sweet and the bed clothing must be just warm enough. To lull the tired one to slumber there Is nothing like the odor of lav ender flowers. The sheets and pillow cases should bf» kept In lavender, and on very Btl fling nights the strongest of the sheets, those that have laid directly upon the lavender pads, should be brought out and spread upon the bod. Reducing Flesh. Whatever else fashion hints there Is not the slightest rumor that flosh Is to be stylish In (he near futi/re. Therefore women who nre not thin are keeping up all kinds of methods to make them so. Live on noodle*, is the cry. Conse quently this diet is strictly kept bv women who are willing to sar rlftce anything to be thin. I ho latest remedy, however, is to drink camomile tea without sugar an hour after eating. I Ids Is said to cure the most rebel lious case, and turn one of barrel- I shaped proportions into sylph like linos i To End Magazine Worry. One family has solved n magazine controversy very cleverly. I In- men In the family complained that the Women loaned (/r gave away the magazines before they had all fin ished with them. So this plan was devised: As the men and women fln Ish reading a magazine, they put their Initials on the first page. When each one has added his or hers to the pa#* that gives permission to loan or give the book away. Three-Piecv Costumes.

WORTHY OF TRUST i PRESIDENT’S ADVISERS HAVE CONFIDENCE OF COUNTRY. Cabinet Is Rich in Men of Legal Mind, and Their Services Are Needed by the Coun try To-Day. The now administration Is strong on its legal side. In fact. It may be said to have no other side. President Taft tanks with our best lawyers. Mr. Knox was called to Mr. McKinley’s cabinet because of his high standing at the bar. and in that cabinet, and later in the senate, attracted wide attention be cause of his professional equipment. Mr. Wickershnm has the highest Now York indorsement, and Mr. Dickinson the highest middle state indorsement. Mr. Nagel is one of the leadiug law yers of the* Mississippi river valley, and Mr, Iialllnger occupies a position of distinction in the legal world of the Pacific coast. Even Mr. MacVeagh, who is classed as a financier, was edu cated for the bar. Lawyers have always dominated our politics. Twenty of our 2G presidents have been of that profession. The greatest of our achievements in the organization of the government—the treasury department—was the work of a lawyer—Alexander Hamilton. John Marshall was a tower of strength at the start. Daniel Webster, a lawyer, expounded the constitution In a way to command the deepest reverence for the Instrument. The most popular and influential of our political leaders— Henry Clay—was a lawyer. The great man who saved the union—Abraham Lincoln—was a lawyer. But never were lawyers more needed than now. The trust question, the rail road question, the labor question, the always present question of national au thority and state authority, are in shape demanding the attention of ex perts in legal forms and powers. The Roosevelt period was largely agitatory. Evils were exposed. Remedies were Indicated. Rut, in n large measure, matters have been left unsettled. There is work aplenty to be done to ward bringing permanent order out of it all; and this ample legal talent In executive office co-operating with con gi ess should bo of Immeasurable serv ice to the country. How strcng we are as a people Is il lustrated afresh by the names pre sented. With an exception or two, all are those of men new to our national life, and unknown out of the country. They have played honorable and use ful parts In their fields, hut not so as »o become known to the general public. The attorney genera) comes upon the stage as suddenly and surprisingly as did Charles E. Hughes a few years ago, and is said to he of the same grade and fiber. His opportunity is Brent, nnd those who know him are confident that he will improve it to the country’s good. Eminent in the legal field, Mr. Dickinson is a stranger in the political field, and takes a depart ment whose business stretches to the Philippines on the east and to Panama on the south. The secretary of war of to-day has his hands full; and as able a man ns Judge Taft found use for all his talents in the post. Hut new as they are. these men. there is all faith, will meet the oiner geticv. nnd. under a chief enjoying the country’s trust and admiration, execute their commissions faithfully and well The First Step. Hie tariff is becoming Jess and less ct a party question. It is generally concoded that the country will not abandon the protective policy. A non partisan commission would have been impossible once, but is possible now. Hut congressmen do not wish to create a commission. They resent expert ad vice. They believe that they know everything best. Hut if the business men of the country shall keep up their agitation—and they should do so—they Will finally extort a commission from a reluctant congress. The first thing is to get a larifT com mission with whose Intelligent assist ance there can he some approach to German thoroughness in the tarifT schedules of future years. The busi ness men should pull together to In duce the next congress to create one as a supplement to Its revision of the tarifT—Chicago Tribune. Calls for Smiles. Thp senate must have been over come with the emotion which the spec tacle of confident and triumphant vir tue always Inspires when It heard the Hon. Joseph W. Halley object to con firming n nominee for a post In the cabinet on the ground that he had per formed some legal services for the W aters Pierce Company. Mr. Halley, with his Intense consciousness of lm pee< ability, is ever prone to condemn In the walk and conduct of other pub lie servants—or prospective public servants—what he generously con dones In his personal and poltical rec ord—New York Tribune. Had the Right Support. In an article reviewing the career of the outgoing president the New York Post says querulously: "As Roosevelt broke with friend after friend, and lost the support of one col lege man after another, he could point to the adoration of labor unions and miners and ranchmen; and that was enough for him. The support of that class of men is what every president In this democratic country should most J desire, for It U the common man, cf) whonv Aliuham Lincoln sal t, tfc« I Loro t.ude so many, that the ko'-cco * men< is Intended chiefly to l MtsiiU I CONGRESS AND 1HE TARIFF. Action on Vital Question Undoubtedly Will Be 8low. The president's proclamation culling the Slxty-fksr congress to meet in ex traordinary session on March *u was In formal compliance with general agreement. The constitution empow ers the president to convene congress "on extraordinary occasions,” but when so convened it possesses all its ordinary powers and is not limited to the consideration of any specified sb Ject. The present "extraordinary oc caeion” is the demand for the revision of the tariff, which was left by com mon consent to the congrcas elected in November last. Even should this session be devoted exclusively to the one subject, the ex pectation that this can be disposed of in ihtee months is probably oversan guine. To begin with, this congress Is to organize anew, and in the house of representatives a tong time will be spent in the discussion of amendments to the rules. The old rules will doubt less stand, with few modifications, but the opiortunity for the insurgents and for new members who know nothing of the subject to make speeches about the sptaker will not be neglected. Aft er this the committees will be appoint ed and organized, and tho committee representatives a long time will be nominally a new committee, though composed mainly of the old members —will proceed to another stage of its consideration of the schedules. In the course of time it will report a bill, and after the bill shall have been adopted by the home It will go to the senate, and will be reported to a committee of that body. After further time it will emerge from committee In a form scarcely recognizable by its original framers. Then will come debate, con ferences, more debate and more con ferences. Finally the tyranny of the “rules” will have to be invoked to reach a definite result. There will be opportunity In the meanwhile for any other legislation that may appear urgent, for the great body of the members of either house will take but little part in the actual consideration of the complicated de tails of the tariff. Nevertheless, the need of prompt action Is universally recognized. The country Is not ex pecting un ideal tariff at tills time, but it does want the matter disposed of. “Sunny Jim." Vice-President Fairbanks has been unjustly held up before the country as a cold. austere man. Whatever else may be said of his successor, this charge will never be laid at his door. James S. Sherman, who to-day is the second oflicer in the nation, is the apostle of sunshine. He says: ' T he world lias been bright and beau tiful right along and has given me all I ever earned and more, too. I have been an optimist from my boy hood up.” His youth was spent amid cheerful and helpful surroundings. His father was a journalist, drifted into politics, and held a number of public offices. His mother, a woman of culture and character, put the impress of her strong personality upon her children. Fortune has been good to her hon ored son, and he has cultivated through life that genial disposition which makes him one of the most pop ular men in public life to-day. The Taft administration ought to be all sunshine with such sunny char acters at its head. The Taft and Sherman smile will be contagious no doubt, and usher in an era of abound ing good fellowship and cheer. The genial laft and "Sunny Jim” Sherman retiect the prevailing optimism of the American people. Enforcing Treaty Obligations. An important reform which Presi dent Taft hopes to see credited to hia ! administration is the assertion, through legislation, of the federal gov ernment’s power to enforce treaty ob ligations. That fs one of the fedejr.I powers which has been allowed to rt main latent, and the omission to ar ply It has more than once seriously embarrassed the United States, a* a nation accepting treaty favors froir. other nations, this country has offe:; had to confess that |j does not guaran tee to aliens the same rights and pro tection which It asks for its own clti zens in alien jurisdictions. The tres tles wh.rh we sign with other powers impose what are apparently mutual ob ligations. Hut when the pinch comes the bni ga'# is found to have been one sided We do not give a quid pro quo. For other governments are in a posi tion to compel their citizens or sub jects to respect treaty promises, while an administration at Washington has to intrust the execution of its pledges to uncertain agencies quite beyond its control. A Southern View. Mr. Roosevelt will rank In history R* one of the five great president* of the I’nlted Suites. Wo would name as the preceding four Washington. Jef ferson, l.incoln and Cleveland. He has done more In the last eight years to Impress himself upon the world than any other man in It, not excepting William of Germany. And notwith standing his Infirmities of character and temper, his frequent follies and even worse, he Is. we believe, the most popular man In the United States to day.—Charlotte <N.
