Graduating Gown of Embroidered Voile That very graceful garment, the long tunic, which appeared and took the world of fashion by storm late last summer, is with us again. Sometimes it is an overdress as long as the under- > skirt, but often it hardly differs at all j from the tunic of last season. The I skirt under it has grown wider, al though it is often considerably nar rower than the tunic. Jlut it may be equally wide, and in either case is good style. One need only to examine the gown of embroidered voile shown here to appreciate the charming outlines of the tunic skirt and to realize that a gown put together on such good lines is something more than merely fash ionable. 1 he style is so pleasing that it has lasting qualities. The bodice is cut on simple and graceful lines also. This is a model that might be safely chosen for a gown of handsome lace, with the expectation that little 1 hatige need he made in it from season to season. Hut the model as pictured is made of plain and machine-embroidered voile, not at all expensive. It is washuble. durable, and a beautiful fabric. It can lio bought in narrow or wide widths, and with embroidery in colors, as well as white, on a white ground. Voile is manufactured in nn endless variety of embroidered patterns. rl he underskirt, in the dress pic tured, is (ittod about the hips and cut with a moderate flare. It Is finished with a three-inch hem The tunic Is lilted to the figure by means of tucks, graduated in length and extending be low the hips. They are shorter at the front The tunic dips a trifle at the front, and this slight dip is repeated in the hodiee. The bodice is cut like « plain blouse, with the fullness gathered in at the bottom and confined under a girdle made of the embroidered scallops. It fits the figure vaguely like a short Jacket. The neck Is finished with a turnover collar of lace, and the same lace is used for the puffs and frills about the sleeves. A silk scarf tie finishes the dressing of the neck. This design is one that seems as well suited to the matron as to the maid, and nothing prettier can be found for graduation gowns or for the useful white dress for midsummer. The Up-to-Date Shopping Bag The best values that have been shown In shopping hags within the memory of the oldest. shopper are to be found in the leather goods depart ments just now. These hags are shown In many shapes, (most of them prac tlcal) and in medium sizes. Pin seal and morocro are the most popular leather, although there are other va J rietles to choose from. Plaek con ; tinues to be the favorite color, with tans and browns next in importance, and a few dark blues, greens, purples and reds for those who wish a bag to match a suit or some dress acces sory in color. Four bags of pin seal are shown here in black. Two of them are sup plied with very complete fittings They are soft, and the leather in three of them Is gathered on to the frame, so that they are more roomy than their size would indicate The bag at file tipper left hand ror n»-r Is to he recommended to the tour ist. It contains a good sized flat hand mirror fastened to the frame bv a bit of strong ribbon, and a small coin purse. In little pockets made tn the lining there are a small fare powder box (with tiny pufTl, a scent bottle, a case with nail file, and a tube which may carry a day’s supply of cleansing cream. Even this ample fitting Is ex ceeded In some bags that carry a card care and very small pair of scissors besides The bag shown at the lower right hand corner will romm^nd itself to the Hhopper or the travele who wishes to take a few notes by the way. It has an oval mirror, net In the flap, a change purse, powder box. scent bot tle and notebook, with pencil attach ed, each slipping into i♦ h own particu lar pocket and easy to get at. Instead of these fittings the remain ing two bags are provided with only a mirror and coin purse Hut a sepa rate compartment assure* a place for such fittings as the wearer rnay choose to provide for herself. Linings are mad* of strong moire silk usually, but gayly flowered silks and satins, in durable weaves, add a charm to these already charming shop ping bags JULIA BOTTOMLEY. Simplicity in Skirt*. According to the f>ry floods F>ono- : mint in the simple tailored suits the ekirt» are made very plain, with more or leu* flare? around the hem. This is Introduced both in the gored and in i the semicircular models. A few skirts, however, are shirred on at the waist line. Some plaited skirts are also in- j eluded In the orders In the dressy suds the skirts are usually made on slm.'lnr lines, the plaited effects partlculaily being pop ular. In some Instances these dressy skirts are finished off at the bottom with cordings, tucks, bias folds of th* material, silk braid or velvet ribbon. LOOK FOR RESULTS People Are Becoming Tired of Mere Empty Words. | Presidential Stumping Tour Would Have Little Effect—Democrats Se* Future In the Results of the Recent Elections. Those Democrats who are alarmed by the election results immediately suggest a stumjilug tour for Mr. Wil son. They want him to swing around the circle and hearten the party. A few blasts front his bugle bora would, they think, work wonders. It is a question. The president would have attention. Crowds would greet him and weigh his words. Rut It is u condition, not a theory, that confronts the Democracy. It in Impossible to argue with an empty stomach. The only successful way to deal with it is to HU it. Neither cam an empty dinner pail be ex plained away. The proper method is to till that. Fine words, we are told, butter no parsnips. They do not. Mr. Wilson Is the possessor or n rich vocabulary, and employs it like an artist. Moth with tongue and pen he charms. Uut an idle man who Is hungry und wants work and to be fed Is in no humor for well turned phrases and arguments. Something more substantial is neces sary. and even Mr Wilson would full with him. Speaking on n notable occasion last yeur, Mr. Wilson declared that the business depression then prevailing was largely psychological a mere condition of the mind. His advice to business men was summed up in two words—"forget it” But the depres sion persists, and the results ure far reaching. A stumping tour, therefore, does not seem to lie the right suggestion. What is needed Is a return of confi dence and prosperity. It Ih true that If the pall over busi ness does not lift, cannot he lifted, and the depression next year Is as great as it now is, the spellbinders then will be as powerless and super fluous as they are today. Money talks. It is said. Idle money is talk ing now, and will continue to talk until it gets employment at lair re turns; and not all the orators at their best will be able to prevail against It. What the people want is not ex planations or more promises, but per formances that benefit. Aldrich a Great Statesman. To old line Republicans Nelson \V. Aldrich was a statesman of highest type and immeasurable strength, pos sessed of something approaching genius for superior politics. Those of other political faith must recognize his rare knowledge of a great variety of subjects and his lirin grasp of economic affairs. He must be given universal credit for showing the way to the greatly needed reform in our financial system, and for the enact ment of a measure providing for the Issue of emergency currency, which has twice given the country causo for gratitude to Rhode Island's distin guished son In the nation s history his name will have lofty and honor able place. Not a Foolish Question. Wny should the colonel regard it as “a fool question" when he is asked If he thinks the Progressives will re turn to the Republican ranks? It is a question that interests a great many people. There were 4,000,000 Pro gressives once. They have been drib bling away faHt since 1912. Many of them seem to have forgotten the words and music of "Onward, Christian Sol diers!” and to be practicing "Hall, Hall, the Hang's All Here!” in antici pation of next year’s election. It may be a fool question to ask where they will go. but they are evidently going somewhere, and the road they are on does not lead to Oyster Ray.—-New York World. Returning to the Fold. Many of those who left the Itcpub Mean party In 1912 have returned. Others are 'tnown to be on the road home The premises look natural, and old comforts arp being felt. The wilderness is not an attractive place. Only a brief sojourn there haa a very depressing effect on those arcus* tomed to clearings and snug habita tions. For fifty years the Republican* have been well housed and well fed At present they are pelf-exiled liy i their folly they surrendered gfxxl nuar I ters, and without a united efTort they | cannot hope to recover them. End* Excuse of "the War" Uustom* receijds so far this fiscal j year have shown a decrease of $70. 000,000 in round figures, which is just j what Mr Underwood predicted in his i speech closing the tariff debate on September 30, 1913 That fnct seems to end "the war" as an excuse for the treasury’s condition. Work Before Next President. The Republican who succeeds Mr. Wilson In March, 1917, will confront a task of large proportions, and re* ! quire the aid of men of ability and of one purpose. The Democratic record i being condemned by the voters, a new record must be made; and this will touch all business, and many political points. Necessatlly, therefore, the new leaders will have their hands full, and should enjoy the confidence ; of the country. Business particular I ly will follow their performances ! with extreme solicitude.

IN A SHADOW Tea Drinker Feared Paralysis. Steady use of either tea or coffee often produces alarming symptoms, as the poison (caffeine) contained in these beverages acts with more po tency In some persons than In others. "I was never a coffee drinker.** writes an 111. woman, “but a tea drink er. I was very nervous, had frequent spells of sick headache and heart trouble, and was subject at times to severe attacks of bilious ooltc. "No end of sleepless nights—would have spells at night when my right side would get numb and tingle like a thousand needles were pricking nay flesh. At times I could hardly put say tongue out of my mouth and my right eye and ear were affected. "The doctors told me to quit using '.ea, but I thought I could not live with out It—that It was my only stay. 1 had been a tea drinker for twenty-five years; was under the doctor’s care for fifteen. "About six months ago, I finally quit tea and commenced to drink Postum “I have never had one spell of sick headaches since and only one light attack of bilious colic.
