THE CEREDO ADVANCE.
T. T. McDOUGAL, Publisher. CEREDO. • - WEST VIRGINIA. For the time being gasoline Is (he favorite perfume. People who keep their sidewalks clean deserve at least honorable men tion. If one swallow doesn’t make a sum mer, what don’t threo robins make? Spring? Manuel Is to get $39,600 a year. Per haps thure Is something In the king business after all. When rats are not disseminating the bubonic plague they are engaged In other nefarious practices. All the world loves a lover, but as to these noblemen who seek American girls with money It Is merely curious. If those New Jersey people think that ” ‘hello’ verges on profanity” what must they think of '‘line is busy”? Think how ninny hen's eggs young McLean could havo bought with the money he paid for that Hope dia mond! Paris In making n move to elevate the moral tone of its literature and !ts art. Tlioro is room for tlio exer cise of its efforts. A Colorado couple who were di vorced in 1875 have Just been married ngain. Sometimes second thoughts come a long time afterward. A Chicago girl captured a bandit who tried to grab her pocket book. Pan dits will learn in time to confine their operations to the less resourceful male sex. If they take the exaggerated shoul ders away from the men and the rats nway from the women hotel mat tresses might achieve additional soft ness. A Boston theologian declares that the story of Adam and Eve is merely a parable. But the old Adam, who blamed eu rythlng on his wife, Is no body's fiction. Thirty per cent, of the students at the Vnlverslty of Wisconsin are round shouldered. Another argument against the over development of gray matter in our youth. A man was sent to a hospital in New York for examination as to his sanity because he thought himself a flBh. Maybe somebody told him he was in the sv.lm. Asheville, N. C, has a "Jack the Kisser’’ 6care, hut we dimly perceive that this may only ho an advertise ment for the place as a summer re sort for old maids. The aeroplane has been developed far enough to warrant less enthusiasm In offering prizes for flights and more attention to the development of a practical parachute. One marriage out of every three in Ban Francisco ends in divorce, accord ing to one who d°lves In such things. Apparently matrimonial earthquakes are common there, too. Innovating dressmakers may try to banish the waist line from the feminine form divine; hut enterprising man will continue to seen, locate and restore it with his strong right arm. Not content with the hobble skirt, those Parisian intriguers iiave sprung the “trouser gown" on us. Possibly the pantaloon effect is expected to make a hit with suffragettes. r'orcet coats for men are reported to be recommended by the fashionable tailors. Evidently the fashionable tailors have faith in the theory that men are turning from foolishness. And now a physician blames the spread of Infantile paralysis on fleas. What? Fleas on pltty Itty tootsie woot sie? I/Ot the doctor prepare for an onslaught of highly insulted moth ers. A beauty expert savs that to Veep their mouths beautiful, women must ehut them. Here is the sex confront ed with the most harrowing alternative ever presented to distracted human choice. An educator asserts that aeroplanes abolish war. Which looks like worklat#r up a movement to have the Carnegie Peace board uko a half mil lion a year In subsidizing aeroplano factories. New York women say that the fenil olne throat loses Its beautiful con tout In making the hissing "s" sound sc characteristic of English. As In "Yes?' The Aero Club of America ha* Acted cotnmendably in taking steps looking to lessening of danger In aviation. One proposition is that ma chines shall be examined more close *y before any attempt at flying Is permitted. This Is n simple precau tion which should be easily taken. A New York pbysfclan tells us that he can rure old age. We have also h« ard of men who thought they had dlscovf red the serrpt of v*rp*tual mo lion 81 range to say, th« Uhjg/cfg” 1» • t U- tcaw no Some Dress Accessories LI I i LE finishing touches make the finished toilet und murk the caro that 1b beautiful. That bows of narrow velvet ribbon, or of folded satin, finish the center of larger bows of lace at the throat. Flower forms in Bhower effects, like that shown in tlie picture, made of baby velvet rib bon and 6atin ribbon, and neck bamls of black velvet studded with tiny roses and forget-me-nots of narrow ribbon have proved fascinating addi tions to the chiffon blouses, now the vogue. Very small flowers made of silk or ribbon or metal tissues, or cf all of them combined were never 30 fully tppreciated as they are right now. They adorn neckwear and bodices and millinery. Occasionally they appear on skirts. Nothing outvies them but the new beaded decorations. Small beads Ruch as the Indians use are a feature of the season. Fabrics are cleverly woven to look as if beaded and one must examine at closo range to be able to tell. The effects are very unusual. It is not likely that the corsago bouquet will be any less a fr.vorito for spring than it is now. The most life-like artificial flowers, scented like I those they represent In nnture, bright | ,?u ub the plainest tailor-made, or add n final charm to the fanciest spring gcwns. The midsummer fashions are des tined to be moat mldsummery. Slow ly we approach that which is at once beautiful and comfortable. And now that Paris is turning out boldly a corsetless gown, and a bifurcated nklit w-hich are taken seriously enough to be insistently reported, it looka as if a new order of things were coming. We shall be forced to glvo much attention to the figure—the body which is more than raiment. PRETTY WALKING COSTUME: Made Up In Chinese Blue Face Cloth. This Design Shows Up to Advantage.

Amon* the novelties and new things suggested for spring are waists of foulard Fllk. They are made up usual ly of soft spring colorings in the new and fashionable printed designs, and frequently have tiny yokes of whits or delicately tinted laces or nets with weo undersleeves of the same filmy fabrics. Lingerie blouses will, of course, have their devoted admirers and fill a considerable portion of our shirt waist boxes. Marquisettes and voiles are often used in their making, as. ol course, are the more familiar batistes and lawns. Tailored blouses often open down the side, and hand embroidered makes them a little lesa severe in style. Cro cheted buttons make delightful fasten ings With us still is the wash-silk bloust In the well-remembered striped ef fects. These may be many colors, and the blouses are usually rather tailored In style. For better wear there are still tha veiled chiffon and soft silk blouses, and our old friend, the Person note, crops out here and there. Novel Collar. The string ties which women art wenrlng with their tailored shirt walstr come in the loveliest of colors. Th« materials used are Innumerable, but all, of course, have the silky finish. A novel collar shows to good advan tago a string tie of del blue corded silk. Tho high, straight, turn down col Inr fastens in front. Wide, vertical eye ht silts appear around tho collar at Intervals of about two Inches, an*1 through these is run the tie, which li knotted In front In four In-hand fash ion. CJt># to Violet.

Provides Better Market for His Pro ductions and Cheapens Price of Many Things That He Has to Purchase. The American farmer may be a little bewildered at this moment. He la be ing assured on one band that the re ciprocity agreement with Canada will ruin him. Other men, among them such ol«l and stanch friends as Secre tary Wilson, arc assuring him that not only can it do him no harm but that it will be of service to him In that it will give him a better market for some of the things he produces an<l cheapen the price of somo he has to buy. For tunately, the farmer Is In a position to consider the question dispassionately. He has heen doing remarkably well for several years. He Is not worrying where tho money Is to come from to pay tho interest on his mortgage. He haH paid It off and has money in hank It should be an easy matter to con vince the average American wheat grower that the free admission of Canadian wheat cannot Injure and may benefit him. The price of wheat for the world Is fixed at Liverpool. The price would not be affected by the free ad mission of Canadian grain. There would simply bo a more extensive In terchange of wheat. American millers would buy more Canadian hard wheat for mixing purposes, and Canadian millers would buy more American soft wheat. Last year Canada took a mil lion dollars’ worth of wheat of the Uni ted States. Hut for the Canadian duty, which it Is proposed to repeal, more would have heen taken. The reciprocal removal of duties would make a broader and steadier market for both countries. There would he no more attempts to run a wheat corner in Chicago. The most daring speculator would regard It as too desperate an undertaking when he had the Canadian supply to reckon with. While the price of wheat would be steadied the value of farm lands would not be affected.—Chicago Trib une. The Tariff. Whatever Iiappens—extra session or no extra session of congress—this Is going to be a tariff year In these Uni ted States of America. If the pact with Canada fails at this session and an extra session 1b called to consider It, that will mean at least a protracted and spirited controversy. In a way, that instrument has Increased Interest In the w hole tarlfT question. It has quickened the national pulse. Both Democrats and Republicans are seeing things a little more broadly and Inti mately than ever before. Here Is re ciprocity In a form that he who runs may read. The proposition is definite and easily understood. If we want a larger market, right at our door, hero is the chance to acquiro It. If the pact falls at this session, and the matter goes over until next winter. It will still be a lively subject of dis cussion in the press and on the stump meanwhile. Governor Foss of Massa chusetts In particular should welcome It. He claimed his election to congress a year ago and his election to the gov ernorship in November on the score of his advocacy of reciprocity with Cana da; and next November Massachusetts holds another state election. Moreover, the pact is certain to grow in Interest abroad, not only In Great Britain, but on the continent, and when its full significance has been appraised there, what is said by the foreign press and by foreign statesmen will add to our own interest In the subject. Future Will Decide. There has been more or less com ment, humorous and otherwise, regard ing Guam, that little Island far off |n the Pacific which as a result of the war with Spain became a possession or the United States. But according to facts brought out In discussion in the house of representatives Guam may have important possibilities as a pro ducer of jKitash, nitrates and other fer tilizers essential to the farming Indus try of this country. Nobody thought much of Alaska when Mr. Seward bought. It. and look at what has been produced there! Guam Is not as big as Alaska, yet who knows but it will turn out relatively as valuable? Indorse President’s Policy. President Taft’s Journey west was a triumphal procession, not merely for himself as president of the nation but for that principle with which ho Is now «> closely Identified nnd which he Is putting info nctlvo form reciprocity with Canada. The president was Justi flably delighted to find ft u the people were ready for this reciprocal relation I with Canada, and his brief trip strengthened reciprocity not only^n the states which he visited, and aTa reflection therefrom throughout the '•ounfry. hut in a very practical way by having its Inflencc upon the aetion )f congress.

It never occurs to a young girl, but It’s often the truth nevertheless, that tho money the young man spends on her when they go out together was borrowed from his mother Just before be left home MARKET FOR AMERICAN GOODS Up to Manufacturer* to Adapt Them, eelves to the Desires of Their Foreign Customers. The reports of our consuls abroad with singular unanimity advise our ex porters to ray particular attention to the adaptation of our methods of sale, of preparation of materials and of packing them to suit the habits and customs of the foreign merchants and meet the demands of their customers. For years It has been found that either lack of knowledge of or inatten tion to the wishes of the foreign mer chants in these respects has been a great barrier to Ihe progress of our export trade; but our manufacturers, since our closer touch of late years with Mexico, Cuba and other Spanlsh American countries and the freer in tercourse with China, Japan and In dia, have Improved very much ill their methods. The money our manufacturers will receive from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the countries of Europe, Asia and Africa, Australasia ami the isles of the oceans will all make for large pay rolls In our own states and u greater prosperity In every farm house and city home In the land. Our exj>ort trade can be more than doubled In the next ten years, and the effect of that Increase will be to the ad vantage and benefit of the people of every state. A statement was made a few days ago that a British agency had placed an order In the United States for 6, 000 automobiles. While that was a di rect benefit to the manufacturers who received the order, It also contributed to machinists In New England, to coal miners in Ohio and Pennsylvania, to Iron ore workers In Minnesota, to freight carriers on the lakes and upon the railways, to steel mills In Pennsyl vania and Ohio, to workingmen In In diana and Michigan, and to longshore men on the docks of the Atlantic ports. When that order Is filled it brings mil lions of dollars of foreign cash to bo utilized in the business of this coun try. Postal Savings Banks. The first month’s operations of the postal savings banks are very satisfac tory to the government officials. Post master General Hitchcock announces that the total deposits amount approx imately to ICO.OOO, and that this aver age continued throughout the year will make an aggregate of $750,000. The amount thus far received exceeds the average per month for the best year of the British system, which has long been In effect. The postmaster general thinks the plan can be extended, and declares that If he had the requisite means at his disposal he would open 500 additional banks at once. The Re publican party favored the establish ment of tho banks "for the conveni ence of the people and tho encourage ment of thrift,” and the system seems to bo getting in its work. Farmers Will Be Gainers. Hero and there, now and then, an individual farmer will make a little less, because of reciprocity, but the farmers taken a3 a whole would be gainers as producers. They would get no less for any of their crops; they would get more for some. Now, how would they stand as consumers? The farmers are consumers of lumber and shingles. The reciprocity agreement would cheapen both of them. They have been complaining of the high cost of those articles for some years. Now Is the time to bring down tho price. Democratic Discomfiture. The way of the aspiring Democrat who wants a chance at the nomination for president is not easy these days. An Ohio organization of men calling themselves progressive Democrats has started in to oppose the selection of Governor Harmon as the presidential candidate. This backfire in his own stato must be discomfiting to the Ohio executive. And the situation becomes still moro complicated with William J. Bryan squinting quite strongly In the direction of Governor Wilson of New Jersey. Proper Handling of Tariff. President Taft has shown the way to handle the tnriff question os a business proposition, practically taking It out of politics. It Is so simple and ho obvious that It Is astonishing it was not adopt ed long ago. In putting the tariff board to work and urging the creation of a permanent tariff commission to take its place, Mr. I aft has formed and pur sued a policy as important to the wel fare of the country as any that a president has marked out In many years. Parker Sized Up. Where Is the personal influence of Alton H. Parker In the New York sen- I atorlal contest? It looks as If he were j paying a political debt to William F. Sheehan, his political manager In the presidential campnlgn of 1904, and his present law partner. The performance makes Hr\an’a estimate of Parker more likely than ever.—Springfield Republl can.
