Old Style Revived. Though in Much
Daintier Fashion Than Those of
a Few Years Ago.
Hail the old-fashioned wristband'
it's In again. Very much so and
you're nt strictly up-to-date if you
don't possess at least one specimen.
These bands, which take the place of
bracelets, but are much daintier, con
sist of strips of Inch-wide velvet rib
bon long enough to go once about the
wrist. On the upper side of the arm.
the strip of velvet is secured by a
pair of inch-square or inch-long ob
long clasps of engraved gold. ham
mered silver or carved ivory. That is
to say. the simpler sort of wristbands
are thus clasped. The more expensive
kind are made of platinum or of gold
or silver thickly encrusted with tiny
jewels or gems or set with a single
large Jewel or gem, surrounded by
others of much smaller size. Fre
quently several kinds of Jewels orna
ment a pair of wristband clasps and
again a single diamond or pearl is im
bedded in the center of a square of
precious metal.
It is possible to have a pair of the
large old-fashioned cameo or coral
earrings made over into wristband
clasps, and, although in former days
a single bracelet band of this type
was rarely worn, nowadays it is com
monly seen. Many women who have
inherited a collection of old-fashioned
ornaments are having them made over
into bracelet clasps and usually the
task is neither difficult nor expensive.
Tall Trimmings on Millinery.
According to the Dry Goods Econo
mist. tall trimmings continue the
rage and in some of the Imported
models this Idea is carried almost to
the point of absurdity. Among the
most effective models now being
shown in which the tall trimming idea
Is employed Is a black Milan sailor
with the brim gently rolled at the left
side. A tiny fringe of black goura
Dutlines the brim and from the edge
)f the brim at the left shoots upward
s tall black goura aigrette bent at
the top in loop form. The tall trim
sing idea is also strongly emphasized
n this market. Question marks of
!eathers, ribbons, cords, etc.. long
nolnted sleeves, flat spear-like orna
nents of velvet and of various fancy
ilks. aigrettes of small flowers close
: packed together, and long spike
Ike Jet ornaments are all utilized in
his fashion.
Green as a trimming, especially an
ighteenth century shade of green,
rill be a feature, particularly as coat C
inings for velvet and fur. Yellow and c
•range are also popular for this pur
ose. Much can be expressed in a
oat lining. Many of these linings are t
rorks of art in themselves, and a lin- 1
og denotes proper appreciation of de
ils which augurs well for the essen
lal. A fascinating effect noticed in a
alilor made coat of chestnut brown
weed was a lining of olive green
atln with a piping all round inside of d
nattier blue shot ribbon. b

r In fishing for pleasure the ,; r:
man usually keeps within from 20 ,
100 yards of the tarpon as he plays
him. As we were fishing for the cam
era, a long-range contest was useless.
and we fought the fish fiercely from
the time they struck. We smashed
five heavy tarpon rods and broke
lines that would each sustain over 60B
pounds. We held our canoe as near
the tarpon as possible, and as soon as
he seemed tired, pulled it beside him
and took the hook from his month.
Somdtimes we found this exciting
The avoirdupois of the fish caught
varied from one and a half pounds
each to more than one hundred times
that weight, while their length ranged
from eighteen inches to over six and
a half feet.
From Charlotte Harbor to Cape Ra
ble we exploited the tarpon fishing
grounds: we captured them in the
Gulf of Mexico while white-capped
waves spilled water over us. and we
were towed by them through narrow.
overgrown creeks. where sometimes
our quarry escaped us by leaping into
the thick bushes over our heads The
tarpon can bhe played gentJy from a'
light-running reel for hours, or he can
be fought furiously and made to leap
wildly around, beside. over, and even
into the boat of the fisherman. Rmall
tarpon, weighing from two to fifteen
pounds, are found in fresh water In
creeks and pools near the heads of
rivers. larger fish, of from 20 to 60
pounds, choose the brackish water of
streams near the Gulf: while the real
ly big fish. weighing from R0 to 200
pounds, are more frequently caught in
the big passes or near the mouths of.
large rivers.
I fished from a light canoe which
my boatman paddled, while the cam- -
era-man sat in the bow of a little
motor boat which backed, filled and
hovered on the sunward side of us
On our first day at floca Grande--the
mile-wide, ten-fathom pass, home of
great sea creatures, from dolphins to
turtles, from sharks to deffitsh-we'
found it windswept, but its turbulent
waters were alive with fish of many
kinds. Flocks of gnlls. tern and peli
cans above, and splashings of Jackfish
and tarpon below, marked the pres
ence of great schools of minnows.
The tide was boiling out of the pass
when we struck a six-foot tarpon
which at once started for the Gulf.
carrying us toward the line of foam
crested rollers outside. The motor
boat vainly struggled to hold us
against tide and tarpon. We were ,

In the autograph sales there are
often letters which throw, light on the

the fall of Vickeburg, which is full of
the modesty of the man.

We believe that there is but one
best time to scatter manure, and that
is as soon as possible. We dto not save
up the manure from spring to fall
nor from fall to spring for any pet
theory. Manure Is a very valuable
product, yet the less time and labor
spent in handling it the more profit
there Is and the more it is handled
between the stable and the field the
less real fertility It will eventually
Last fall we chanced upon a cer
tain farmer who was hauling out his
summer's collection of manure, alid
was carefully piling It all over the
field in piles, says a writer in an ex
change. We went over to find out his
reason for doing it instead of scat
tering directly. He said be always
thought manure did the most good
I when bcattered directly before spring
breaking. and he wanted it piled up
(during the winter so it would not be
gone by spring by freezing, washing
;and bleaching. lie didn't like the idea
of its being piled all in one big heap
and being scattered in the spring elth
e"r, but wanted it piled in smaller
heaps so he could scatter more easily
I and save loading again. Then he had
read of how manure lost so much of
its va'up in heating or burning out
shat. although he used to pile it in
bigger htaps. he now made smaller
Really the man had caught faint
iidklings of the advanced mnethods and
made just this one step forward.
l'rbably the smaller heap will not
fire as badly as the larger heap. yet
how much and labor he could have
saved if he had scattered the manure
directly instead of piling It up in the
field. Experience has proven to us
that freezing is the finest thing in
the business to put the manure in
shape for the spring crops. No nitro
gen or other valuable elements are
lost In this way.
