_ FALL FASHIONS,
Velvets to Be Popular for Gowns to Be Worn at All Kinds of Func tions. WAISTS TO BE MORE FITTED Skirts Longer Straighter and Puller—The Latest Cor* sots. © - The fashion of things feminine U mov ing inevitably onward in a circle. A new style is always met with the remem brance of some old-time fashion of which it is the counterpart, in a measure, and one mode after another is laid aside but to make room for still another revival. Fashion is logical, delightfully logical, and the girl who studies the history of fashion—and her name U legion—is al ways prepared a little in advance for the nest turn of fashion's wheel. The new fashions of autumn may now be said to be settled and to have arrived, and the influence of the American girl is plainly distinguishable in their lines and out lines. The skirted, coal., and the long three-quarters coat, with which we have been familiar since the .late spring, ns well as tlie corset coat which caught on so rapturously, all these were of distinct ly American origin. When the buyers and milliners and dressmakers went to Paris in the early summer they were con siderably surprised to find that the makers of tho modes Parisian had not taken these gartneuts at ail into accoun: when deciding upon the new styles. Quite the contrary. French women, ami Eng lish women who pride themselves on be ing dressed by French artists.p were all wearing the short Eton or the loose baggy garments fashioned' upon the kimono or dressing sacque order. The long-fitted coat was a fashion of Which they took no cognizance whatever; it did not enter into their scheme of dressing at all. However the American buyer was not going to re linquish a style for which there was a sure acceptance On this side of the water, and the claims of this coat were pressed with sucll vigor, that Paris has bow I adopted it 'with tjip .rfljklAs? enthusiasm which characterizes all her doings sar torial. Velvets in their- many grades and under ^ many names are high up on the roll of fashionable fabrics. The hew weaves in these are so soft and sheer that the old time objection to their weight can no longer be put forth. Many and various are the qualifying adjectives, all intended to express the airy ua’ure of the velvet. Velours, mousseline, chiffon, zephyr, etc.. are some of the titles, and really the fab ric justifies tbeir application. Reception gov.-ns, dinner gowns, ball gowns, are all shown in many colored velvets, while for wraps hud coufs the heavier grades are eminently suitable. Of course, these will not be cheap gar ments. for velvet demands an amount of care in the handling that preclude cheap labor, added to which, if the cut and fit and finish are not in every way i absolutely above reproach, the result is, more deplorable thanjf executed in uuy other fabric. All the mohair *and Sicilian weaves ary in high favor, and the new weaves are really beautiful in their sheen and lustre. The entire color card is repre sented in those, beside* which checks and plaids of various size* are also to he had. A tailored costume was recently Sgvn jii a coarse Sidlieuhe of the new sapphire shade. The coat was long and absolutely tight fitting, the darts reaching farther up than usual. The skirt was in instep leugth, with a binding at the edge, sideplaited from belt to hem, the plaits widening considerably at the bottom ahd held in place by several rows of tape on the inside. ( Waists are to be more on the fitted or der than heretofore, the^jlnlng carefully fitted to the figure, but the little blouse front which every sort and shape of figure feminine found so becoming 1s at last to be banished after a long and successful reign. It will disappear but slothy, however, far there is not yet anything in sight which can adequately take its place. Indeed, manufacturers report a steady demand for the long skirted blouse coat, and this, too, from j the big cities where fashion’s every little whim is studied and followed, and when iV , ..

Chinese Torture Duplicated in W. Quincy, Mass. Complete Exhaustion Follows, and Death Was Feared. The Chinese hare a method of tor ture that is the refinement of cruelty. They keep a patient awake till he dies of nervous exhaustion. Mrs. Sarah C. Williams, of 15 Cross St., \V. Quincy, Mass., was kept awake for a long time by disordered nerves. Dr. Greene’s Nervura cured her when it seemed as though she must die. She tells of her terrible experience as follows: “ About eight years ago T received a bad fall and my health began to Tull. 1 grew worse until I was unable to do any work, i grew so nervous that nt the least noise of any kina 1 would faint away. 1 could not dose my eyes at night and I have been without tleep for a week at a time u«;|l I was completely exhausted. I had several doctors and nothing they gave me did me any good. One doctor told me I had a floating tumor and that I would have to undergo an operation. The day was set for me to go, when I decided not to go. I thought if I must die, I would rather die at home. “ Finally my sister came to see me, and when she saw how* bad I was she told me of Dr. Greene’s Xervura, the great nerve tonic. “ The first day I took it I went to bed and slept all night, a thing I had not done for six months. I was so pleased that I kept on until I hid taken six bottles, and now i am a well woman. I owe it all to Dr. Greene's Nervura and I tell everyone I see sick about it. I feel I cannot praise it enough. “ You ar,e entirely welcome to use this testi monial in your advertising, or in any way you wish.’* Dr. Greene’s advice is free to ail suf fering women. Write him and he will tell 'you how to get well. Address 101 Fifth Ave., New York City. any one feature is thought to be passe there it is declared to be dead indeed. Skirts, too, are to be longer and straighter and fuller, gud masses of sheer material are always used in straight breadths to ^all in soft folds to the feet. Naturally this mode will call for verj- lightweight goods, and the new weaves intended to be made up after this style are almost diaphanous in their texture. Voiles and eoliennes appear un der new names, such as ziffre, lunel, etc.. but they are simply our old friends under a different title. Of course, the skirt or drop skirt to be worn beneath all this fluffy mass of material must be more carefully fitted than ever. Fashion con tinues to say “Hips in!” and in order to balance the slender effect at the hips and waistline a marked flare is declared at the foot. Since the corset is really and truly the foundation of the costume, and the effect of the latter depends almost entirely upon the fit and coutour of the former, it would be as well to take a look at what I’aris is sending over for us to wear with the new designs. The first thing that at tracts our attention is that the tong, slen der hip is still the accepted model. This design gives such a graceful effect to even a clumsy figure1 that we cannot lselp hop ing that it will remain with us indefinitely From the waist-line up however, we see quite a change. The bust is raised con siderably, and this is, of course, in ac cord with the dictum that tightly-fitted waists are to be the correct thing. The tightly-fitted waist, with its sharply curved darts, would be anything but a tiling of beauty when fitted over the pres ent low bust corset, so to meet the new vogue the lines of the corset had to be changed materially. For slender figures the low bust corset was ideal: but for those measuring thirty-eight and over— and it was most enthusiastically adopted by our adipose sisters in conjunction with the loose French cache corset—the result was deplorable. Now. however, with the higher bust corset, with its long slender hip. all sorts and shapes and sizes of figures can find a suitable model, can keep up with the procession in fash ion’s ranks and know each is looking her best while so doing. The style in hats is being largely depen dent upon the modes of coiffure, many if those for the coming season are adapt 'd to wear with the low coil at the neck. The Charlotte Corda.v is one of the new shapes. Pictures of thnt ill-fater heroine have made ns familiar with the style of headgear, but thi# season the hat is trim med with more feathers than it was in the days when its sponsor wore it. All the turbans continue good and they will be much used, since they are well adapt ed to show off the shaded effects in silks and velvets, which are. perhaps, the lead ing feature of this fall’s novelties. And this shaded effect is not confined to hat materioia: it has reached out and em braced almost every article of feminine Wear. Then new dinner corsages are fashioned of shaded chiffons, the liehter tint being displayed at the shoulder and the color deepening until at the waist the deepest tone is used. Tliesp are so artis tically dyed that the transition from the one.shade to tlie other is scarcely appre ciable: one tone blends so well into the next that there is no dividing line what ever apparent. With these dinner waists come hats—large hats—with plumes dyed exactly to match the color scheme of the waist. The uew lavenders and mauve* nod vio lets make an exquisite color scheme for such development, ami the soft shades of fawn deepening lift wood-brown are pretty when livened with, a touch of grwu * * EAT LETTUCE DAILY. Then You Will Be In Ko Dknen of Catching Imallpot, Lettuce is an absolute preventive of smallpox. No one is in the least par ticle of danger of catching smallpox who eats a little lettuce eVery day. Smallpox belongs to the scorbutic class of diseases. Sailors at sea, de prived of fresh vegetables, get scurvy. Scurvy Is a typical scorbutic disease. Smallpox is another. Smallpox always rages during the winter season, when the poor people ure deprived of fresh vegetable foods. Celery and onions are good tor this purpose, but then! is such a long Inter val between their being gathered and being eaten that they lose most of their antiscorbutic properties. Lettuce is served shortly after It is picked, and hence eontalns^tho valuable prop erties which will prevent smallpox. We say without the least hesitation or reserve that lettuce will prevent smallpox. It Is a thousand times bet ter than vaccination. It has no liabil ities, like vaccination, to produce other diseases. We are willing to stake our professional reputation on the broad statement that any one who oats let tuce daily will not . catch smallpox, whether he be vacclbated 0r not.— Medical Talk. -Birds as They Fly. No bird can fly for any appreciable distance tail first. The nearest ap proach to such a movement is shown in the tumbler pigeon when that bird slews his wingji- forward and, suddenly turning back his head, throws a somer sault, but this is- not true backward flight. When a bird whiles to reverse its motion it tilts lts boQf laterally, as a railway carriage .would be tilted In taking a curve, or Increases the number of beats given by one wing as com pared with the other or keeps one wing extended while the other is partially flexed. But a bird can no more fly backward than a ship can sail astern. Some birds, however, and particular ly the albatross, can fly half upside down—that is, with the wings pointed in a direction nearly perpendicular to the sea—and when turning quickly In this position the appearance is some times almost as though the bird were using its Wings in a backward direc tion, though their structure i~ not really adapted to any such movement, and when poised, facing a strong wind, birds may seem to move astern. Rossetti and Whistler. Dante Gabriel Rossetti once showed Whistler a sketch for a painting and asked him how he liked it. “It has good points,” said Whistler. “Go ahead with it by all means.” A few weeks later he aBked how the work was progressing. “All right,” answered Rossetti cheerfully. “I’ve ordered a stunning frame for it.” Happening in at Rossetti’s in Cheyne Walk, Whistler asked to see the can vas, which was brought out beauti fully framed. “You’ve done nothing to it since I saw it, have you?” said Whistler. “No,” replied Rossetti, “but I’ve writ ten a sonnet on the subject if you would like to hear it." The former of course assented, and the poet-painter thereupon recited some lines of peculiar tenderness and mel ody. They were barely ended when Whistler broke in with: “Rossetti, put the sonnet in the frame.” Indian Tribes of the South. The Cherokoes. as far bock as the whites have any knowledge of them, occupied portions of northeast Ala bama, southeast Tennessee, western North Carolina and a portion of north west Georgia.

The Choctaws, on the contrary, occupied the comparatively level regions of middle west Alabama and eastern Mississippi. Between them and the Cherokees wore the Creeks on the northwest and the Chlckasawt on the north.
