THOMSON'S EYE TALK "V (TALK XO. l!2r.) To Business Men. I am a resident and tax paying cit izen of South Bend. I expect to al ways remain .so. I take pride in the beauty and resources of our city and an interest in her business develop ments. I believe in home trade and home patronage. All of my pur chaseFaii of my expenditures are made here. When I want some ar ticle that cannot he found In outh IhT.d. I select the pattern I like when in Chicago, and then come hack and order it through merchants that they may have the profits. For this rea son I make no apology in asking your patronage. I believe that it is only right that I should be given the pref erence over others who only make in termittent visits here, and who have oilier interests in other towns or other states. I believe that I can give you better service at less expense. DR. H. A.

Mr. r.aikie thinks that pos sibly the island of Crete (the island tctbd to Creece by Turkey at the conclusion ef the recent l'.alkan war) was the actual sta'e for m. st of the .ents which have reached the world tlie shaoe of the old (Jreek legends. "It has i.een in Crete that explora tion and discovery have led to the most striking illustration of manv of tho statements in the h gends and tra ditions, and have made it practically certain that much of what used to he considered mere romantic falde rep resents, with, of course, many embel lishments of fancy, a good deal of historic fact." writes the Rev. Mr. Uaikie. He deserih. s the discovery of the site of the great palace of Minos at Knossoa, in the labyrinth of which roamed the blood-thirsty Minotaur. Wonderful Clowns. The dress of the women he de scribes lrom the frescoes found in the palace: Here," he says, "were groups of ladies wonderfully debizened with costumes resembling more closely the evening dress of our day than the stately robes of classic Greece, with their severe lines. In their ver,y low necked dresses, with puffed sleeves, excessivelv slender waists and llounc ed skirts," and their hair elaborately dressed and. curled, they were as far as possible removed from our ideas of Ariadne and her maids of honor, arid might have stepped out of a modern fashion-plate. If the dress of the male populace was simple, that of the female was the reverse. An elaborate and tight-titting bodice, cut excessively low at the neck, cov ered, or affected to cover, the upper part of the body, which is so wasp waisted as to suggest universal tight lacing. From the hoord belt hung down bell-shaped skirts, sometimes llounced throughout their entire length, sometimes richly embroider- ed. In some cases the skirt, below a small panier or apron, is composed of different colored materials com bined in a che.jued pattern distantly resembling tartan. One frescoe rep resents a curious and elaborate form of dress, consisting apparently of wide trousers of blue material dot ted with red crosses on a light ground and most wonderfully frilled and vandyked. Diaphanous material was sometimes used for part of the covering of the upper part of the body. Hairdressing was very elabo rate, and above the wonderful erec tion of curls and ringlets which crowned their heads, the Minoan ladles wore hats of quite modern type, and fairly comparable in size even with those of the present day. A seal from Mycenas, representing three ladies adorned with accordian plaited skirts, shows that heels of a fair height were sometimes worn on the shoes." Well Kquippoel Kitchens. The archaeologist also describes the houses with their wonderful drainage systems, "which," he says, "it would be hard to match in Eu rope until a period as late as the middle of the 10th century; the kitchens, which he declares were "almost as well ecmipped as the kitchen of the present day; and the carpenter's tool kit. containing saws, chisels, awls, nails, files and axes, "which resemble in shape the toeds of today so closely that they furnish one of th strongest links be tween the first. -great civilization of Europe and our e.wn." The Rev. Mr. Iiaikie thinks that the Mir.ian empire was overwhelmed by a sudden great catastrophe. The condition of the ruins which are be ing uncovered show traces of fire on the walls and a sudden interruption of the (iiiet and luxurious life which the people lived.
