STYLES FOR MISSES
^ MORE NEARLY RIGHT THING
THAN THOSE FOR WOMEN.
Look Actually Adorable In Baglike
Skirts of Hour—Many Dressy
Frocks Are In One-Piece
Models.
The fall clothes provided for misses
strike the heart disgruntled with fash
ion’s follies as more nearly the right
thing than those provided for woman.
True, the small woman may find them
to her taste, but the styles are creat
ed for the girl, and it is not entirely
the traditions of girlhood that make
them attractive. Perhaps it Is tho
charm of the very short skirts and the
slim figures—it may be that the young
girl is more suited to the present friv
olities than the woman who is sup
posed to have come to the age of rea
son.
Everywhere one encounters the
maidenly wisp of humanity looking
actually adorable in the baglike skirts
of the hour, with their restraining
bands or skimpy cut, with the over
skirt that looks as if it has a right
to be, the short sleeve that seems
legitimate and so on. In the field of
practicalities a mannish little coat
suit represents the proper caper for
street wear, and in its most killing
phases it looks as if it might be made
out of three yards of stuff. A trim,
dinky sort of little jacket, with coat
sleeves fitting all but to the skin and
a single-breasted front, is completed
with a skirt without a gather and with
only two seams—these at the sides.
Mannish materials, too, are being used
for it, and for all the apparent sim
plicity of such suits they require the
touch of accomplished tailoring.
Many dressy little frocks are in one
piece models, or they may be in two
sections, writh the upper part of the
skirt simulating, with a yoke or trim
ming, some basque finish for the
bodice. When the waist and skirt join
perfectly it is impossible to see at
first glance that these frocks are not
in one. Then there is the straight
overskirt still with us, and just now
it is the merest cap, hugging the hips
tightly and finished w'ith the inevit
able band the hobble introduced. Be
low the cap, fortunately for grace and
locomotion, there may be a deep kilt
ed flounce, which in fine materials
flutters and waves gracefully with
walking.
But these are the pet extremes of
the hour, and for those who want the
sensible thing pray let me introduce
a few pictures which show styles as
pretty as they are reasonable.
Though designed for misses, the mod
els are appropriate for small women
and the styles are all quite simple
enough for home dressmaking.
UNDERWEAR IS MADE NARROW
Skirts Now in Demand Necessitate a
Change in Cut of Under
garments.
The narrow skirts now in demand
necessitate a further narrowing of un
derwear to conform to the new linen.
Drawers, of course, come under this
heading, and various ingenious meth
ods have bean devised to narrow
them.
They are made, for instance, on a
yoke top, with wide, lace trimmed leg.
Again, they open on the side, being
edged with wide lace and fastened at
the side of the leg with ribbons or
buttons. And some are made with
Knickerbocker band that fastens be
low the knee and is finished with a
rude, or are fitted with tucked tops.
Altogether, the underwear one buys
this fall should be purchased with an
eye to its possibilities in connection
with the empire gown. ' }•' ■
gad grammar, like bad language. Is
always learned from the Neighbor's
Children.
i The combination of Russian coat
and plaited skirt, shown In the Illus
tration, represents an ideal style fpr
a young girl’s street wear for both
autumn and winter, for by wearing
a warm little vest under the coat the
dress would be suitable for any but
the most frigid days. As pictured, the
suit is made of a mannish goods in
brown and red, with a little handsome
embroidery and some fancy buttons
on the bodies. The skirt is in seven
gores, but as these are plaited and
stitched at the top the effect is styl
ishly narrow.
This model will be found very good
for lightweight serge or cloth or some
novelty suiting or other, and instead
of the embroidery used here a palm
leaf Persian silk could be bought for
the collar and cuffs and pipings of the
bodice. A good wool, with trimmings
of black velvet, would be substantial,
and if one wants the latest touch she
must respect velvet now.
“FAIR APRON” MAKES A HIT
Designed by Clever Young Woman
Who Found No Further Space
for Table at Fair.
“The “Fair Apron” It is called by the
clever young woman who is its origin
ator. There being no further space for
a table at the church fair in which she
was anxious to help, she conceived
the Idea of making a big, stout apron
of denim, with plenty of spacious pock
ets, and going around with it, selling
Email toys to the visitors at the ba
zaar.
No Eooner thought than done. The
apron was made of dark green denim,
reached to the knees, and was pro
vided across the base with three
roomy pockets, made in the deep turn
over of the hem by two straight lines
of stitching. These divided the band
into three divisions, which were trim
med with a triplo row of narrow white
braid. Two smaller pockets were
made higher up. All of these pockets
were hastily ornamented by pictures
of Teddy bears, etc., outlined in thick
white floss. The apron was fastened
around the waist by two stout cords,
which helped support its weight.
So great was the success of this
plan wdth the children who were too
small to get near the big tables that
the second day of the fair she was
obliged to hang a tray around her
neck to hold the further wares de
manded of her!
Novel Tunic Effect.
A pretty idea for the finishing of
a tunic, especially one of veiling or
other soft material, is to slash the
tunic in front, like an overskirt, and
knot it loosely at each side, drawing
It away so as to show’ a great part
of the underskirt up to the knees.
The knots are made about half way
from the ankles and the tunic falls
loosely below them. Of course, it is
caught with a few stitches in back,
to keep it in position.
Shoes With Collars.
They are a novelty in footwear.
The shoes are high, to begin with,
and buttoned.
Around the top is a turnover piece
of leather, called a “collar.”
This collar is tied together with a
cord and tassel, amusingly suggestive
of a small necktie.
The "collar is usually or a learner,
contrasting in color or kind, or both,
with the shoe.
Hat Trimmings.
Flowers are no more to be seen on
the best Paris hats; feathers have
entirely taken their place. Black and
white ostrich plumes are first in fa
vor, especially in the willow curl.
Paradise aigrettes in the same
shades are also popular with the Pa
risienne, though fortunately most of
our really well-dressed women refuse
to wear feathers that are obtained at
the cost of so much slaughter.
Fancy Straw Baskets.
Fancy straw baskets which so many
of us accumulate can be put to a gra
cious use by filling with fresh fruit
and sending it to an invalid or to a
friend starting upon a Journey. The
artistic effect is enhanced by adding
some of the foliage.
Afraid to Come Out.
“Did you read how Miss Akroyd of
Boston remained in the water for
more than five hours?”
“No; what was the matter, did she
tear her bathing suit?”
Good (foliar Support.
This new device consists of a tape
pocket into which fits an ivory bone
that slips out when the collar Is
washed. The tape is sewn into the
collar, and as it is turned over at
either end it prevents the bone from
digging into the neck. When once ad
justed the boning of the collar gives
no more trouble, as it is only the
Ivories in and out The wldti of the
tape is little over a quarter of an inch,
so that is is only slightly perceptible
through the.collar. Sizes vary from
a quarter of an inch and range in
length' from two inches to three and
a half Inches. The Invention is high
ly recommended.
Winter Coats.
The majority of the all-sorta-of
weather coats are mannlBh things,
really deserving to he called, ae they
are, overcoats. They are made of
fuzzy chinchilla (doth, or blanket
cloth, with wide, but not gathered,
sleeves, and big storm collars, usu
ally of fur. The coat forma that re
turn to the raglan sleeves are re
garded as the aiuatfiet at present

STORAGE FOR GRAIN
1 *■ w
Practical Granary With Several
r Good Working Conveniences.
Ohio Farmer Gives Interesting De
scription of Building Constructed
8everal Years Ago—Gasoline
Engine Valuable Adjunct.
The granary on our farm was built
In 1875, and we have found ft both
practical and convenient, writes Lon
Hurst of Ohio, In Rural New Yorker.
It Is a timber frame, 20 by 30 feet,
with 1C-foot posts and sets up from
the ground about two feet The girths
are 4 by 4 Inch oak scantling, the
joist 2 by 8 inch gained two inches in
the beams, leaving four inches above,
which comes even with the top of the
girths; in this way there is no chance
Plsn ef a Grain Chute.
for the floor to sag at the ends—it
makes a perfectly tight joint. The
siding is one foot whitewood boards;
the entire height of the ends Is bat
tened,-but only the upper half of the
sides; the lower half is sawed to make
about four-inch siding, thus leaving an
air space for the corn which is on the
first floor. At one end is a double
doorway, seven feet. The second floor
Is used entirely for small grain. There
are 11 bins, six on one side, five on
the other, each being 414 by 414 feet,
514 feet high, and holding about 100
bushels. The larger part of the floor
can also be used for grain, and there
is a grain chute in the center. At one
end Is an elevator raised and low
ered by means of a windlass It is
simply a section of flooring with a
rope attached at each corner ; these in
turn are attached to two ropes which
pass over the windlass. This is rath
er tedious, and most of the grain is
carried up the stairs, which are in
one comer. There is a landing part
way up. the stairs are wide and the
incline easy of ascent, so this method
Is not so bad, yet a great convenience;
In fact this is about the only feature
of the building in which we would
care to make a change. This floor is
well lighted by two good-sized win
dows, one at each end.
The grain chutes to the first floor
can perhaps 'be better understood by
the diagram. A, detachable portion;
B. curved end of Iron which hooks
Into staple and holds A In place; C,
piece of board to prevent grain from
leaking out at the sides; D, lever
moved by means of a stick, to open
slide E, which moves on points F and
H; K nailed to joist; hooks at the
bottom of A, on which to hang grain
bags. When cleaning over grain, in
stead of the wooden chute, I have can
vas ones which can be ‘twisted in any
direction to reach the top of the fan
ning mill.
There are on the first floor two
com bins, four feet wide, one running
the entire side, the other mot quite as
long, as some of the stair space comes
out of it. Beside, the fanning above
mentioned is a feed mill, run by a gas
oline engine, of which I will speak
later. I have a small box holding 10
or 12 bushels; this being on rollers
can be moved about, so it is not neces
sary to draw from the bin every time
the stock is fed. There is also a large
box holding about 25 bushels fpr
ground feed. When loading and un
loading grain from the wagon, we use
a scoop-board 20 Inches by-4;% feet;
this makes a bridge wide enough for
the grain-barrow, and thus facilitates
unloading. The five horsepower gaso
line engine we have had two years,
and it is certainly a valuable adjunct
to the farm. We use It for buzzing
wood, but it was principally for shell
ing com and grinding fed that I pur
chased It. Before that we used a pow
er requiring two teams and two men
to drive them, though a good driver
could manage both. We have a sta
tionary iron roof for it, and Bides and
ends which can be taken off, thua pro
tecting the machinery from storms.

PEANUTS MAKE GOOD PROFIT
Last Year's Crop Was Marketed tot
About $36,000,000—Used for
Fattening Hogs.
The person who buys a nickel**
worth of peanuts to munch at the ball
game, to feed to the squirrels In the
park, or to gladden the hearts of the
klddleB at home, scarcely realizes that
he has contributed to an industry that
last year farmed a $1,000,000 crop,
which, placed on the market In vari
ous forms, reached the enormous sum
of $36,000,000. But it is a fact!
This little seductive nut—a resolu
tion to "eat just one’’ is soon forgot
ten—whose birthplace Is America,
was, until comparatively recently, un
appreciated, either as to the "money
in it" or as a really nutritipus product
Today the peanut plays an important
part in pleasure, from the swell dinner
party to the ever-present democracy
of the circus, ball game or picnic.
By far the largest part of the crop
is consumed from the peanut stand,
yet there are millions of bushels that
go to the fattening of hogs throughout
the south and the feeding of poultry,
while the vines, often cured as hay,
feed thousands of head of cattle and
even old mother earth is nourished
by the roots of the plant, which fur
nishes nitrogen from the air.
The result of all this is, that scien
tists claim that the peanut, which in
the past was not very highly regard
ed, is the only food staple that will
at ohce nourish man, beast, bird and
field. It is the most nutritious of the
whole nut family, rich in tissue build
ing properties, containing glucose and
carbohydrates—and is the cheapest.
Beyond the shadow of a doubt it is
first from both a dietary and economic
otanilnnln#
The fact of the matter is, the pear
nut is about every way In a class by
itself as regards price, average num
ber fti pounds, edible part, waste and
fat. Peanuts average about three hun
dred and fifty to pound, at a cost of
ten cents; the edible portion is 73.6,
waste 26.4, and the amount of fat is
placed at 80 per cent of the edible
portion.
ONE METHOD OF FILLING BAG
One Person Can Accomplish Trick by
Following Out Plan as Shown
In Illustration.
It very often happens that one
wishes to fill sacks with small grain,
apples, potatoes, etc., but has no one
to help hold the bag. An excellent
method of doing this is to procure an
old wooden or metal bucket and knock
out the bottom, says a writer in Popu
I
lar Mechanics. If it is a metal bucket,
file the edges smooth to prevent its
tearing the bag. Set the bucket in the
mouth of the bag as shown in the illus
tration and you will have no trouble
in filling it.
Dry Farming in Texas.
Texas has suffered considerably this
year from drought. If all the farmers
of Texas had understood the funda
mental principles of agriculture which
have been enunciated and clarified
and popularized by the development
of dry farming, they would have spon
taneously put these principles in modi
fied form into practise this year to
their individual benefit and the gen
eral welfare.
Besides there are thousands of
acres in the state of Texas which are
now idle and unproductive that could
be made to yield a good revenue to
the individual and to the state if cor
rect methods were pursued.
Cull Poor Layers.
After the second year the hen'*
value as a winter egg-producer less
ens.
Cull out the poor layers and give the
prolific hens more room to work.
Ducks and geese should never be
kept with chickens.
Rations for Cows.
It requires a daily ration for a dairy
cow containing about 29 pounds of dry
matter. Of this 2.5 pounds should be
protein, 13 pounds carbohydrates and
% pound of fat The carbohydrates
should be about 5.5 to 1 of protein.
Feeding Cows.
Feed liberally at this season, so that
the cows will hold up in milk through
the fall and into the winter. If they
are allowed to decrease In milk flow
now, It will be difficult to increase the
flow later.
The way one keeps bis fowls is gen*
orally the way the fowls keep him.
The day of crossing breeds is •
thing of the past We now have utility
pore breds.
Work up a strain of hens that will
lay. Save the eggB from the best lay*
ers, and set them.
It Is generally true that short
legged fowls fatten a great deal more
quickly than long legged ones.
It to easier to keep fowla in good
condition than to allow them to run
down and then build up again.
The fowls that are email for their
age should go now. Their room la at
more vafce than their company.
The experienced poultryman breeds
only from his best winter layers, It la

profits are to be ooimted upon In the

Cruise of World for Naval Cadets

Many of tl lg men who will
take their fl g voyage on the
cruise are on iet as a direct re
sult of up-to dvertising of the
cruise by Ui m. He is not
ashamed to advertise and does it well.
He sets forth the attractions of the
navy and the life of a sailor on a mod
era ship as alluringly as a mine pro
motor sets forth the merits of bis
proposition.
When this cruise was first an
nounced, several months ago, the navy
department Issued advertising matter
to draw recruits. One of its most ef
fective documents was a circular let
ter, prepared at Washington, but sent
out from the various recruiting sta
tions. It was written In a heart-to
heart style. The cruise meant, ac
cording to the letter-writer, “that
thousands of young Americans will
have a chance to see the world and
get paid for it. Do people who save
for months or years to go abroad ever
regret it? I want to ask you this im
portant question: Are you willing to
travel if you are well paid for it, or
would you rather stay at home and
read about it?”
Naturally, when it is put up to him
in that fetching fashion, the young
man concludes that he would a good
deal rather travel and get paid for it,
and he hies to the nearest recruiting
station and enlists. Long cruises cost
a lot of money, but they bring in
young men and the navy must have
young men even if they do come high.
Another heart-to-heart letter is ad
dressed to the young man who is
tired of his Job. “Perhaps you are un
happy in your present job,” writes the
recruiting officer. “Perhaps it doesn’t
pay you enough. Perhaps there is no
future to it. Perhaps your present
work will never satisfy your burning
ambition to win great success. Well,
now if you want to change your job,
I’d like to have a talk with you and
tell you all about a bluejacket’s life
In the navy.”
If the young man isn’t tired of his
job that letter is calculated to make
him tired of it, and the navy gets an
other man. Other appeals are made,
but the cruise talks are what bring
the best results.
Put Under Bonds to Keep the Peace
MEXICO is a striking illustration of
the way modern business puts na
tions under bonds to keep the peace.
A naturally turbulent Latin-American
republic, mainly Indian in blood, pays
coupons on its government bonds to
citizens of 21 nations. That is the
number of countries represented last
year. In 1907, coupons on Mexican
government bonds were redeemed for
citizens of 16 nations.
Every country so interested, through
its citizens, in the stability and hones
ty of the Mexican republic, is an in
fluence on the side of peace and or
der in Mexico. In a very real sense
the Mexican nation has 'given bonds
to keep the peace by selling govern
ment securities to foreigners living
under many flags.
Less directly, but still in ways that
count heavily the sales of private
property to foreign investors are also
equivalent to giving bonds to keep the
peace. In the last quarter of a cen
tury American capital to the amount
of not less than $1,000,000,000, accord
ing to excellent authorities, has been
invested in Mexican mines, planta
tions, railroads and other Mexican
property. European money has poured
into Mexico in a similar stream.
Of course, no Mexican government
ever guaranteed the security or the
profitableness of such investments.
No government of any great power
would undertake to collect from the
Mexican people, as a nation, money to
matte good tne Josses sustained oy
Americans making unwise invest
ments in Mexico.
But every power which has many
subjects who have staked money upon
the stability of the Mexican republic,
the justice and solidity of the Mexican
government, and the general sanity
and regard for business obligations of
the Mexican nation, will exert more
or less pressure upon Mexico if that
country should ever default as a na
tion or encourage its citizens to re
fuse to pay their just debts. In the
aggregate these forces brought to
bear upon Mexico can be trusted to
have a deep and wide influence there.
Such international business bonds
of peace are constantly becoming more
important in many parts of the world
Every year the financial and commer
cial ties which knit the nations to
gether increase in strength. Always
the tendency of the times is toward
the creation of closer international re
lations and a surer sense of common
Interest in the preservation of peace
This is one of the widest and strong
est forces in the development of mod
ern civilization. It is one of the great
agencies for good which shape the
progress of the age. Business has
many bills charge to its account, but
there is no denying che vital and bene
fipent influence which it exerts upon
the international relations of the
times.
It brings knowledge with the growth
of selfish interests in the reign of law
and order throughout the earth. Men
widen their outlook upon the world
when they multiply their investments
in distant lands. With knowledge
comes good will, and good will aids
the highest type of international
progress.
Bank Failures Due to Lax Examiners

upon this course of action the con

says:
“Many of the examiners state in

but upon many of the members of the

various boards to meet with the ex

“This investigation by the controller

Money for Tuberculosis Work.
The National Association for tne
Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis
gives forcible illustration of the way
in which a small sum spent in educa
tion has secured large appropriations
from state, county, and municipal of
ficials. The New York State Chari
ties Aid association In the three years,
1908, 1909, and 1910, has spent in the
up-state portion of New York about
$55,000 in arousing the people to the
dangers of tuberculosis. As a direct
result of the public sentiment pro
duced by this outlay, the state, coun
ty, and municipal authorities have al
ready appropriated for tuberculosis
work $1,500,000 and appropriation* for
hundreds of thousands of dollars are
pending. Hundreds of hospital beds
have been provided, and the associa
tion already aims for ‘‘No Uncared-for
Tuberculosis in 1915.”
Thus, the National association says
If $1,000,000 is realized from the sale
of Red Cross seals, millions more will
be added to it from the public treas
uries. Last year 25,000,000 stamps
were sold. It is aimed to sell four
times as many this year.
A Logical Landlord.
Many a tenant will sympathize with
the man in this story, from "the Phila
delphia Record. He was renting a
small house which the landlord had
refused to repair. One day the owner
came to see him.
“Jones,” he said, “I shall have to
raise your rent.”
“What for?” asked Jones, anxiously.
“Have taxes gone up?"
“No,” the landlord answered, “but I
