ALL COIFFURES HIGH
LOW-DRESSED HEAD NOW THING OF THE PAST. Some of the Modes Are Trying and Not Altogether Pretty—Sketches of Ornaments That Are Popular. The low-dressed head Is a thing of the pust. Every fashionable coiffure is high, and there is a great vogue in hair ornaments. All sorts of pretty things are requisitioned for the decora tion of the hair, back-combs playing an important part, in the scheme of adornment, while such trifles as high bows of spangled and pailletted net and lace, butterflies of velvet and se quins, semi-wreaths of flowers and foliage, knots of roses, wisps of tulle, and illumes of various kinds are more or less worn. According to present fashions the hair is drawn up high from the nape of the neck, fixed mid way with an ornamental comb, and ar ranged in various fancy ways on the top of the head, the decree being that the dressing shall be forward for the winter season. The hair in front Is either thrown well over the forehead or drawn straight up from the brow in a series of puff-curls, the coiffure shelving off sharply at the back, in a way that, it must be admitted, is sometimes very trying, and far from pretty. The really artistic coiffure is so arranged that it forms a sort of frame to the face; but the ultra-smart are prone to lose sight of the artistic ele ment in their mode of coiffure, think ing only of the importance of illustrat ing the last word in hair-dressing fash ions. Nothing could be uglier than some of the modes of coiffui e that are reckoned as “smart” where the hair is dragged up to the top of the head in a j way that is at once hard, ungraceful, and unbecoming. Quite a new ornament Is (he tiara of lace, which may be seen sketched in the accompanying group It is generally mounted on a rolled bandeau of gold tissue or net, and is suitable for the middle-aged woman. Sketched also is the new hair orna ment, consisting of a drapery of gold tissue with a full-blown pink velvet rose at the right side and bunches of gold grapes and vine leaves at the left. The combination of color in the real article is truly lovely. Another orni ment in the group is a little cap of err. broidered velvet—pale blue worked with pearls and gold thread—wltl knots of black or blue satin ribbons at each side. This little head-dress i? copied in black moire and in fur fot matinee wear at theaters. Beneath it will be seen a sweeping paradise plume, this, in black or amber, form ing a picturesque accompaniment to an Empire toilette. The remainins sketches show a couple of hair orna ments of pailletted net and a Spanish back-comb of carved tortoise shell.— Montreal Herald. SMART AND ARTISTIC COATS. Suggestions of Spring Models Are Most Pleasing. The Directoire coats, as designed for this next season, are wonderfully artistic in conception, but depend largely upon the figure and pose of their wearer to make them as smart as they are intended to be. One just arrived from the other side shows a dull blue silk With bolero blouse front. This bolero is gathered closely at the waist-line, so that the front is drawn around to the sides, and from there falls in two deep plaits to the knees. The back is plaited in similar manner, caught in at the high waist-line with a green gold buckle, the plaits escap ing in folds, which terminate in a sin gle point some two or three inches lower than the sides. The sleeves are short, reaching only to the elbow, and formed of box plaits, caught two inches from the bottom, and left to flare. There is a rever collar, pointed in the back; the coat Is edged with chenille bail fringe, and is altogether wonderfully smart, and typical of modes to come. Made of contrasting materials, these bolero jackets, and particularly those with the skirts, are especially effective, and are bound to be popular, fashioned of aJl-over embroidered linen, worn with one of the pretty simple skirts. Another sug gestion for spring models is the Resto ration, or one-piece effect:, which par takes of some of the characteristics of both Directoire and Empire. In it the waist-line Is just below the bust, and is always defined either by a belt or some arrangement which clearly stim ulates one, as tucks, straight rows of braid, or a bias fold. From under neath this hangs a long, straight skirt, gathered to give it fulness, and quite plain, as is the whole costume, except for a broad band of flat embroidery down either side of the skirt. The model shows the new shoulder treat ment, the sleeve cap being a continua tion of the upper part of the waist, and cut without a seam. The long shoulder is well defined in one way or another in all the advance designs that have been shown, and most of the models are given the short, or threor quarter sleeve, even in tailored effects. To accompany the sloping shoulders and blousing fronts, we are to have the postilion back. That does not mean that it is to be used only with the blouse coat, for, on the contrary, quite a feature will be made of cut-a-way coats and boleros, which swing loose in front, in connection with this postil ion back. SLEEVES IN MANY STYLES. Are Being Shown cf Every Sort and Description. Sleeves of every sort and description are the ultra fad of the season. There are short sleeves, of heavy thick ma terials, short fur sleeves, short sleeves so sheer they may be seen through, and demi ones of middle weight fab rics. The long sleeve is equally mod ish. Jabots and Chemisettes. To wear with the plain black or 1 dark blue cloth or serge costumes which are so smart and useful, a most attractive style of waist is made of crepe de Chine or chiffon cloth, trim med with narrow pipings or folds of taffeta. Either the chemisette of lace or lingerie, with cuffs to match, fin ishes the waist or it is worn with one of the new jabots or ties that are so popular this season. Crepe de Chine and chiffon cloth are ezcellent wear ing materials and for the many times when a dark waist is required with a plain costume there is nothing so satis factory, and it is possible to obtain quite a variety of design in the trim ming of taffeta. Velvet ribbon can be used for the trimming also, but it is by no means so practic.il as the silk. No More Long Gloves to Buy. There is every indication that the reign of the elbow sleeve is drawing to a close. The sleeves on the new gowns are short, but come well below the elbow, and the close-fitting cuff of tucked chiffon and lace lengthens them still more. The fashion has been (w exaggerated and caricatured that it Shoulder pieces, such as shown in the illustration of No. 1, are decidedly popular. This model is for an evening gown. The sleeve proper is a mass if tiny full frills, and is surmounted with the fabric which forms the gown, rhe frills are of some delicate mate rial, such as chiffon, mousseline de 3oie or lace. The cap is strapped with velvet and lace finishes the corsage ibout the low-cut neck. This lace is aid over the shoulder cap. Bands of embroidery are effective on long sleeves of dressy coats, as shown ly the model No. 2. These bands may be carried on into the cuff, which is ilso a feature of the season’s trim ning. Linen Collars. Embroidered linen collars, the high turned down style, are extremely smart, and are worn with all kinds of waists. They are finished in front, md the favorite finish is the tulle bow or rosette fastened with a bar pin if diamonds or pearls. One style has buttonholes through which are put ink cuff buttons, or a velvet ribbon :hat is tied in a stiff bow. A hem stitched edge, a narrow line of hand bmbroidery, or some small design In bmbroidery just at the corner, is the mrrent fashion. ?as entirely lo3t any smart effect, ex :.epting in some elaborate gown with which elbow sleeves are appropriate. ?or midsummer and in the thin fabrics ;he fashion will revive to a certain ex eat, but fortunately its popularity has jroved its own undoing, and ere long t will be numbered as a past fashion. —Dress. Furs Are Cheaper. Furs were a little more expensive Shan usual early in the season. But they have toned down a little in point if expense, and one can now get them it normal prices. In the expensive furs there are the 3ables, which may be said to come irst. They are always elegant and ;an be worn by old and young. They ire especially suitable for dowagers, because of the fact that they can be worn with crepe, and they are at the same time suitable for fashionable women, who find that sables carry with them a certain tone which other furs lack.

MEANS MUCH TO COMMUNITY He Is at the Head of the Thing* That Are Good for the Town and Your ■elf. (Copyright, by Alfred C. Clark.) The above head is a subject that can well be treated as open for dis cussion and consideration at any and all times. It is also a subject that should interest all persons who have at heart the welfare of the community in which he lives and who wishes 10 see it grow and prosper. No person can afford to do what fie knows will work an injury to the com munity in which he lives. In justice to himself he cannot refuse his sup port. to the home industries that are striving for existence and the welfare of the town in which he goes to do his trading. In considering this question it should be borne in mind th^t the coun try people, like all other American citizens, are always on the lookout for a place to invest their money that will bring them the biggest returns for the least expenditure; in this they are right and are justified in so doing, but, at the same time they should re member that they are dependent on the home merchant for the money that they send to foreign markets. • If they should stop to think how these catalogue houses are operated, and look into, and know, the true con dition of affairs, probably they would reconsider the stand they had taken toward them. In many cases the peo ple are ignorant of the true surround ings and inside operations of these concerns and think they are doing right in sending them their money. They are led to believe that what they get from the catalogue house is the same article that the home merchant sells, only at a much lower price. The majority of the people do not know that they are buying the cheapest article that can be manufactured and De turned down by the Seller of these articles when he wants anything In the merchant’s line. He should be the first one to he consulted when the farmer Intends buying. He should be seen and arrangements made for the purchase of the article, if he does not carry it in stock. The home merchant advertises or should advertise, in the home paper. This keeps the home paper in the field and helps the community along. The people take the home paper because it gives all the local news that they cannot get any other way and thus the advertisements of the merchants are read by them. If the people do not patronize the home merchant he can not afford to advertise, and without advertising a paper will soon prove a failure. Soon the home paper is sent to the wall for the want of support from the merchants; it may have a large circulation, but without the mer chant’s help it will soon be lost to sight. Then the merchant is next to get out of business for the want of support, and the town will decrease in population, and the people will won der what the trouble is when the editor and the merchant leave town together. The home merchant contributes to the support of the church, he pays his taxes to keep' the schools up, he contributes to the horse show, the fall festival, and the hundred and one things that he is supposed to help out and give his support to. He is at the head of the list for everything that is for the good of the community and he deserves the honest and hearty co operation of all the people, all the time, that are interested in the wel fare of the community in which they live. The merchant helps to elect the men that are to represent them in the city, county, state and national af fairs, and he is ever on the go looking to the interests of the people. The people like to be entertained and they will come many miles to some amusement given by the mer chants of the town where they are ever ready to go to sell their farm products. The merchant cannot give these entertainments unless he has the support of the people and it is not fair to expect this of the men that are striving for a livelihood, when the peo ple send their money to a concern in some far away city that will neither contribute to any of these enterprises t’s a Shell Game—You Pay Your Money Without Knowing What You Are Going to Get. that they are in reality paying more for an inferior grade of goods than those sold by the home merchant, which probably cost them a few cents more. Since the catalogue house has sprung into the commercial world and begun operations in the United States, all kinds of schemes have been tried and worked to get the money from the people that are always looking for bargains. No expense has been spared in their struggle for the almighty dol lar ' of the country people, and they have been so far successful, at the great expense of the home town of the people that sent their money to these concerns. Magazines have been started for the sole benefit of the catalogue house, and these circulated among the coun try people at ten or 15 cents a year. They build up a circulation on this low price of hundreds of thousands; this circulation brings to them mil lions of dollars in advertising from the catalogue houses and this money ex pended for advertising is more than doubled from the sales of these con cerns to the country people who are losers by the transaction. Catalogues are sent out telling the people that the house from which they came is the cheapest place in the country to buy, and it is, if the person receiving this catalogue wants a cheap nrtiniA not onlv in nrice. but also in malte and material. The farmer re ceives this catalogue, looks it over, and after reading the well composed guarantee or assurance that the goods described in it are the very best that can be found anywhere, sends in an order. The house receives the order and immediately ships the articles wanted. The farmer drives many miles to get them and when the box is opened it is found to contain some thing much below his expectations, but this does not satisfy his mind on the fact that he has been duped and that he is not getting his full money value. In a second order he may be treated the same as the first one, but still he may think that he has saved money by buying it where he could get it cheap. At the same time the merchant at home has the goods on the shelf in his store waiting for them to be taken away so that he can replace them with newer goods, thereby keeping his stock fresh and up-to-date. If he has not the article wanted he can order it from the wholesaler or manufacturer and it will be sent to the purchaser in as good condition and short time as if it had been ordered from a cata logue house. The home merchant’s business must be kept up and in order to do this it is absolutely necessary that the people at home patronize him and help him keep up with the times, or else he. will soon be out of the struggle for existence among the country people. The home merchant should not be expected to pay the highest price for produce and farm products and then or take an interest in the surround ings thereof. Home trading makes home Indus tries, brings more to the town and keeps them there, and it helps to build up the place. But the town will be at a stand-still so long as the people per sist in this way of robbing the home merchants of the right to live and do business among them. If the people will keep their money at home there will be no need for complaint. The place will assume a lively air, it will take on a metropoli tan look, and the people will say to their neighbor that business is good, and it will be, as long as the people continue to trade in the home mar kets. The least that a person can do toward the betterment of the com munity and his own interests, is to keep the money at home and see to it that it is put where it is most needed and wanted. This should be a vital question to all concerned in the welfare of his community and it should be an estab lished rule that one should not seek for things in other parts that he can get at home.

They can sing, dance or recite in a manner most pleasing, but the poor man often goes begging for a woman who can*sew on buttons or mend his clothes; who can cook his food with economy and flavor to his taste.—San Augustine Vidette. Miss Myrtle Loggins, the charming editor of the Vidette, can make the average man out hunting for a wife imagine he is being entertained by an angel, whether he does his court ing in the kitchen or in the parlor. Those east Texas girls have a wonder ful knack for flavoring a man’s life to s^t his taste, whether he be rich or poor.—Houston Post. Origin of “Helpmeet.” “Helpmeet” has had a curious his tory which began with the biblical account of the creation, when “the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” That is to say, a fit assistant. But the two words hove become curiously combin ed into a “helpmeet,” and they are constantly used as one. Moreover, the confusion is increased by the cor ruption of the words into “help-mate,” and Macaulay writes of the waiting woman who was “generally consider ed as the most suitable help mate for a parson.” Clever French Imitation. The French manufacture a paper linen so cleverly that it is almost im possible, without examination, to de tect the difference between it and dam ask; and even to the touch the ar ticles made of papier linge are very much like linen, and are often used in Its place. FARHER AND PLANTER ALL-COTTON FARMING. An Alabama Man Who Believes There Is Something Better. The year of our.Lord 1906 demon strated, certainly to every thinking man, the utter foolishness of "all-cot ton” farming. A late spring and an extra early frost for us, together with a bumper crop west of the Missis sippi river, ought to be a plenty to teach us this lesson, as this may oc cur again any year, writes an Ala bama farmer. A man said to me: "Oh. I would like to have some other money crop besides cotton, but I know of nothing else to make.” Said I: “Make butter.” Said he: “Make butter?” “Yes,” 1 replied, “make butter.” “Well,” said he, “I’ll never make butter for my living.” This conversation shows where the trouble lies: A large per cent of our people are gone clean daft in their worship of King Cotton. They follow him up and they follow him down, Each eager to place on his head a crown; The King gives back from his throne in the town, In the spring a smile, in the fall a frown. It also shows the general prejudice of our people against dairying, and their utter ignorance of its great pos sibilities. It remains for those who have seen the light, and felt the jingle of the golden dollar that gilt-edge butter brings, to turn on the light and keep it turned on until it shall penetrate our section. We need a campaign of education on this line to drill into many more of our farmers the great fact that our soil, our cli mate and our environments are adapt ed to this line of farming. A few years ago a man I knew commenced to make butter to sell from perhaps a half dozen cows. He had always been riding in an old shackly shack, but in a snort while he bought for his family a nice new carriage, and paid for it with butter money. On their first drive to church some mischievous fellow wrote on the back of it: “Who would have thought What butter would have bought?” Now, I know hundreds of farmer families that need new carriages, and scores of other new things, many of them not the luxuries, but the neces sities of life; and I also know that they will never get them with their present mode of farming. I commend to them the example of the man mentioned above. Now, while I have great faith in the possibilities of this line of farm ing, I am not unaware of the fact that there are many difficulties in the way. COTTONSEED AS FERTILIZER. Rich In Ammonia, But Deficit in Phos phoric Acid. One hundred pounds of green cot tonseed will yield: lbs. Ammonia .3.80 Phosphoric acid .1.27 Potash .1-17 They are very rich in ammonia, bnt deficient in phosphoric acid. The best way to use seed is to mix them with acid, or put the seed down in the furrow and drill at the rate of 200 of acid phosphate per acre. A 10-4 acid will give a complete and high-grade fertilizer. To get best results with least labor drill down ten bushels cot tonseed per acre and then put down 200 pounds of acid phosphate and list on them before planting, putting the seed deep enough to prevent sprout ing. Then plant cotton and corn above them. To manure highly and at same time cheaply for sandy land add 200 pounds of German kainit and drill 400 pounds per acre on the cottonseed. This would not cost more than $3 per acre in cash outlay ana ought to give a bale per acre on all land well prepared and cultivated, or if put in corn should yield from 30 to 40 bush els per acre.—Southern Cultivator. To Render Plant Food Available. The majority of our southern farm ing land is upland. Chemically there IS noi SU muca uiuciculc m a luuil foot of top rich soil and a cubic foot of clay two or three feet deep as you would suppose. Both have nearly the same amount of plant food, but in the soil it is more available. To render plant food available is one of the prime offices of the farmer, says a writer in the Southern Cultivator, ani all the factors that tend to do this and to increase this food supply in the soil are of the utmost importance to him. Now, what are the factors that regulate this food supply in our upland soil? They are (a) depth of soil, (b) fineness of soil, (c) humus in the soil, (d) watet and its work, (e) sunshine and it work, (f) th9 air and its work, (g) living forms and their work. Put Something In Stubble Land. It is very evident that farmers can not get peas enough to sow their stub ble land. The next best thing is break and harrow land, run off rows about thirty inches apart and plant about a peck of peas to the acre. They ought to be cultivated twice. One farmer in this county last year sowed a lot of stubble land in cottonseed. He had a good stand, but we have never heard results. While the cotton plant does not gather nitrogen, it is better than nothing on the land. A Good Stallion. There is really a good deal that could be written on this subject pro and con, but there are no ifs nor ands about the fact that every farming community needs a good stallion. And I say this' advisedly, for there is no disputing the fact that a half-bred or scrub stalUon does a vast deal of harm, in tnat he is breeding down ward instead of upward, and instead of the young horses being an im provement on the old they are not so good.—Writer in Progressive Farmer. THE STIRRING OF THE SOIL. It Is the Hinge Upon Which All Con ditions Revolve. The breaking and stirring of the soil depth is the hinge upon winch all the other conditions revolve. The soil is the home of the roots of the plants, and this depth not only gives them room in which to grow and spread themselves, but assists favorably all the ministering agencies which prop erly supply these roots with food for the plants. It conserves the moisture, prevents washing and leaching, lets in the sunshine and air to do their beneficial work, and gives room and favorable conditions for the develop ment of all living bacteria which pro duce nitrates in the soil and increase in other ways the soil’s productive ness. Nitrogen is used by plants in the form of nitrate, and many com pounds have to be broken up and changed into nitrates. Depth of soil promotes or allows free circulation of air, which is very essential. Plant roots, like fish, must have air as well as water, in which to live and thrive. Then, too, it allows the power of sun shine to have full sway and stimuate rapid growth. It keeps the mechan ical condition of the land right for both heat and moisture to do their perfect work. HOW TO GET A BALE PER ACRE. An Expert Imparts the Secret to a Farmer. A correspondent writes the South ern Cultivator: How would this mix ture do for cotton, where I had corn and peas last year: 700 pounds acid phosphate. 575 pounds kainit. 000 pounds cottonseed meal. 125 pounds nitrate of soda. 2.000 pounds. If this is all right, how much would it require to make a bale of cotton to the acre, where I have been making half a bale with aoout 300 pounds commercial guano? Will you please tell me about what the mixture will analyze? Your mixture would analyze: Phos phoric acid, 4.9; ammonia, 3.35; pot ash, 4 per cent. This would be lack ing in phosphoric acid. We had rath er have your formul* as follows: 16 per cent acid: 1.000 pounds kainit. 575 pounds kainit. 300 pounds cottonseed meal. 125 pounds nitrate of soda. 2.000 pounds. This would give you an 8-2-3 goods, which is much better balanced. Use 600 pounds per acre, and you will get your bale. SEVER PLOW WHEN WET. Break Land Thoroughly and Deeply For Corn. Land should be thoroughly and deep ly broken for corn. Cotton requires a more compact soil than corn, and while a deep sop is essential to its best development, it will not produce as well on loose, open land, while corn does best on land thoroughly broken. A deep soil will not only produce more heavily than a shallow soil with good seasons, but it will stand more wet, as well as more dry weather. In preparing for the corn crop, land should be broken broadcast during the winter one-fourth deeper than it has been plowed before, or if much vege table matter is being turned under, it may be broken one-third deeper. This is as much deepening as land will usu ally stand in one year and produce well, though it may be continued each year, so long as much dead vegeta ble matter is being turned under. It may, however, be subsoiled to any depth by following in oottom of turn plow- furrow, provided no more of the subsoil than has be»n directed is turned up. Break with two-horse plow if possible, or better, with disc plow. With the latter cotton stalks or corn stalks as large as we ever make can be turned under without having been chopped, and in peavines it will not choke or drag. Sever plow land when It is wet, if you expect ever to have any use for it again. The primary object for following any pursuit is to make a living and some money for a rainy day, and cow keepers are at present very favorably situated in this respect, compared with the cotton farmer. It can be easily demonstrated that one pound of butter can be as cheaply produced is two pounds of cotton and that there is as much money making butter at 20 cents as there is in cotton at 10 cents. Cotton the present season will prob ably average 10 cents for all the crop sold up to date, while butter will prob ably average for the past year as mnch as 23 cents. For some time past the price in Elgin has been about 30 cents. The prospect for some time to come is certainly as much as 25 cents for the year around. I know of some who are getting as much as 40 cents for their butter fat. Make Farm Life Pleasant. Have we done all we should to bind the hearts of the boys more flrmly to the old home farm, or have we *t times by our foolish pessimistic talk made them think that only in the great city are industry and worth to be rewarded, causing them to forget the beauty of God’s country at the quiet sunset hour, of the companion ship of the lambs, colts and calves, of the call of the horses as we step into the stable at the early morning hour? Perhaps their eyes are blinded by our impatient remarks. The average American hen lays G6 eggs a year. As these are most ly laid when eggs are cheap, her earning capacity Is probably not more than |1.00, says Orange Judd Farmer. Her feed, housing, care, etc., cost fully hah a cent a day, or |1.82 a year. Therefore, it does not pay to keep average hens for egg laying. The nu mber of farm ers who keep hens above the aver age is steadily increasing. No one has put himself on record as favor ing poor hens when good one3 cost no laore to keep. TRUE SPIRIT OF COURTESY. Impulse Prompted by Owner’s Noble ness of Heart. Courtesy 13 a quality of the heart and suggests a forgetfulness of self, a refinement and delicacy of tempera ment that prompts the charming act as Impulse. The gentle spirit of courtesy be trays itself in the manner of address ing a servant or a weary assistant be hind the counter as well as friends and acquaintances. A lack of courtesy often results from a mistaken idea as to one’s own importance. The thought is born in the heart; but a false idea of independence presents action. It merely is an act of courtesy and a mark of nobleness of mind voluntarily to resign one’s right in favor of an other. It. is the same mistaken idea that confuses frankness with rudeness. It is a virtue not to resort to the many petty deceptions that inar our social system. While we turn with disgust from the woman who bids her friend an affectionate farewell one moment and breathes a sigh of relief at her de parture the next, we can but admit that a truly courteous heart will re frain from speaking an unpleasant truth without Imperiling the person’s veracity. Value of the Newspaper. Some Republican congressmen were discussing the president’s suggestion to shut out from the mails such news papers as have been printing indecent details of the Thaw trial in New York. Mr. Littlefield of Maine in dulged in a general review of the press, its powers, functions and priv ileges. “If it were not for the vigilant press of this country, with its trained corps of representatives in Washing ton,” he said, “I don’t know whether I would care to serve in congress. My experience here has taught me that the newspapers perform a service of inestimable value to the country. I sometimes think that congress would drift into many excesses if the press gallery were not here to keep us in bounds.” Turbine Propellers Liked.
