Shu with a soldier sweetheart may adore, 4unl imitate her Sammy boy's clothes. To her the soldier becomes the r.inkiug otliccr for style. And so he tits herself in military costume from the hat on her head to her broad-toed, low-heeled boot. The trig, mannish, military moders seem to stand at- attention all the time. With patch pockets, all round belts, military straightness and rookie colors, there's many a soldier would htiive to capture such models. And then there are others who per ceptibly scorn all military advances. They seek the slim, slender, silhouette fiom the tight narrow shoulder line, iitted wiilst and ripple peplum to yard or yard ami a half width about the hem, and on the way down, there may bo an ovcrskirt, draped effector tunic, but which does not interfere with the straight line appearance. On coats and suits, long shawl col Iais and narrow tailored lapels vie with another for wide recognition. These defy any attempt at military control. Buttons are u.ed lavishly with clever effects, while simple, but ef fective, spots of color are given by beautiful over-collars of silk and cot ton. Vests and veitoe effects In jaunty little suits promise wide popu larity. Many of these youthful suits are shown with irregular buttons, coming to long points in front and with ripple effects In the back. Attractive belts ajid s.ish effects ure suede, although some clever new coats are minus the belt, but still re tain the long lines, emphasized in many instances by narrow box pleats. V Not only are many novelty and style fabrics, such as tricontiues, duvet ilu lalnes, Kashmlrs and sliver tones shown, but serges, tweeds and poplins are In high favor, especially when made up In the attractive tailor ed models.

Gordon Edwards is a name the pub lic will know more familiarly before long. Every parent with a son In the trenches or preparing to enter the trenches will feel grateful to him. Edwards has conquered pain, or a large part of path's territory, by ln-l venting a local anesthetic called na kalgln. I Anesthetics, you may exclaim, are nothing new. No, and yes. .The kind of an anesthetic he has discovered is brand-new, says Edgar Mowrer, in Col lier's. Instead of applying it through Injection, It is sprayed onto a wound, or dabbed 'on with cotton, to any ex terior part of the body where pain is felt. The patient remains conscious. There is glory enough in being the discoverer of such a surgical aid, but Edwards has another distinction to his credit You may have been ransack ing your memory to Identify him among the world's great physicians and surgeons. It is a futile effort, be cause until four or five years ago he knew no more of medicine or surgery than any layman, j His story is the record of a man who was trained in one profession and who perceived a deficiency in an other profession that of surgery and started out to supply the need. The need was an anesthetic which could be used locally, act Instantan eously and leave no bad effects. Coming events evidently do cast their shadows before, for Edwards be gan his research before the great war broke out in 1014. His idea was per fected by the time the German hordes were sweeping through Belgium and pain was rampant, but the overwork ed army surgeons had no time to ex periment with his preparation. In London he was accounted a crack-brained American, a fakir, a quack. This was discouraging , but if was not crushing-The surgeons used cocaine, which is dangerous and chloroform, which acts quickly. From November, 1914rttTJuly, 1915, Edwards knocked at the door of the British army In vain. Then isolated experiments convinced the British that he had something important and the anesthetic "nikalgin" (from the Greek, meaning victory over pain) was officially adopted. This was not the last obstacle, however.- The British government found it too expensive to make, it was said. The ingredients are fairly common and the only secret Edwards held was the formula for preparing it. He began to fill Orders and to send the bills to the war office, and, although presumptu ous proceeding, he ultimately was paid. Still he was not satisfied that the best use was being made of his dis covery. Then he offered to supply the French army with as much as it need ed without cost. To finance this gift he turned to wealthy Americans and Miss Anne Morgan receives credit for in valuable assistance through generous gifts. By this time he had perfected a method of applying the anesthetic with atomizers instead of using soak ed cotton. It was at Verdun that the greatest triumph came. The terribly mangled bodies of the wounded in that inferno were relieved of pain and the wounds healed without suppuration or secretion. t T"he remainder of the story In Col Iter's M a record of successive tri umphs. Miss Morgan continued to bd the-"angel," and the Italian army ad opted it as well. It was found that when thewounded were relieved of pain they recovered with a rapidity that astonished the surgeons. Now it remained for, the Russian and Amer ican armies to adopt it. Perhaps you are pictuiing Edwards riding in limousines, diessed in the most expensive clothes and otherwise evidencing great wealth ns the result of his achievement. The pictuie is what might be expected but it is not true of him. He is not rich, because he has not tried to make money out of his discovery'. Not only temporary relief is afforded- but the painless redressing of wounds 13 possible after spraying through the bandage. The public will wait to see the attitude of our gov ernment at Washington toward this American addition to the world's knowledge of relief measures. Edwards was born in Milwaukee, Is under 40 years of age, and was gradu ated fioin Stanford university. He quite engineering and became a bond salesman in San Francisco until he decided to provide surgery with a real pain killer. Few stories of the war are more unique than the facts in his ca reer. WAR BRIDES MAY BE TEACHERS The school authorities of Terro Haute are going to make an excep tion to the rule against the employ ment of married women as teachers. This Is, for women whose husbands have gone or will go to war. Super intendent Waltes Bays there are a number of teachers who bad Intended being married and giving up teaching, but whose husbands-to-be have gone Into the service. These women will be permitted to marry and continue as teachers. mm m FINEST FLAOMAKER IS COST U. S. PATENTS HER NEW AND ORIGINAL METHODS.

One slight little white-haired woman stands before the nation today, and sin the hearts o American soldiers and sailors, as no one else Amelia Bold Fowler, maker of tho nation's flags, maker of the flags of regiments now In France and on tho way to France. Not In Betsy Ross' time, not In Bet sy Ross herself, nor In her handlwoik the first American flag was there over enthusiasm that in any way matches this acclaim over the work of the Boston woman of the present day.f For Mrs. Fowler is a genius, anu sua imu hrniinhi in tho lrniln of flncmnklnc mm In Amei lea so exquisite a sense of art, surprised everyone.

Meanwhile a demand for new tings had sprung up in government circles, Masonic orders and in the army and naVj for flags that were dlneient from the sort in vogue flags that would last, flags designed and em broidered with artistry, such as may beiound in European countries. "General Dalton was the first officer I knew of," said Mrs. Fowler, "who was Interested In flagmaking as an nit. He had traveled extensively and therefore knew something of the per manence and beauty of embroidered flags and of their necessity for each nation. He had observed that the method of painting flags which wa3 then altogether in vogue In America, eventually cracked the silk and was not in any way rich or effective, nor could the workmanship or design or color In any way compete with Euro pean flags.

I told the flngmaker to return In ten days and I would give him my answer. Night and day every hour I experi mented with the order, tried this stitch and that, different designs and methods. At last I hit upon the way and I took the order. That was tho beginning." That was the beginning. Slnco that 'first order more than fifteen years ago Mrs. Fowler has made not only all of the important flags for all the Massa chusetts regiments, but the Important national flags as well. Old Charles Eaton, who for fifty years had made the flags of- Massachusetts by means of the painting process, found his trade supplanted by the new art.
