A SFETY LADDER FOR CHIMNEYS.
Prevents a was From ns Blows rrom
Anyone who has ever noticed the
construction of one of the very high
chimneys sometimes seen towering
over an industrial plant of some sort
could not help but to imagine himself
in the position of the workman who
must at more or less frequent intervals
climb up and down its preciptious side,
clinging to the tiny iron projections
placed for his accommodation. ' In
the construction of a chimney now
being erected at Syracuse for the
Solvay Process Company, a new idea
in the erection cf the ladder is being
put into effect, as shown in the ac
companying cut. William B. Cogswell. tan
the vice-president and chief engineer
of the company, is in a measure re- ton
sponsible for the innovation, or at has
least for its introduction, into this
country. He was traveling abroad a
short time ago, and while passing cr'
through a part of Germany noticed
this style of ladder construction, and
at once recognized the merits of it
and made a note for future reference.
The idea is for the man to get
inside of this ladder, where he is
much more secure than in the more
exposed position outside of an ordin
ary ladder. The wind is often very
strong in such an elevated place, and
a greater effort is required to hold on
than to climb aloft.
In making an ascent of a tall chim
ney the man can at any time rest him
self completely by standing with both
feet and his elbows upon the rungs
of thq ladder at the same time, or
he can put his arms over the rungs
at any time, or if he likes can have
a piece of plank thirty inches long with
him, which he can put across one of

woman and always find a place. The
attractive May Manton model illus
trated is suited to dimity, batiste lawn
and the like, and to such light weight
wools as cashmere and albatross, but
in the original is made of white lawn
with frills and bands of needlework.
The fronts are tucked to yoke depth,
then allowed to fall free and form
folds, but the back is laid in pleats
that are stitched in tucks and produce
a tapering effect. At the neck is a
sailor collar and the sleeves as shown,
are tucked and in elbow length, but
the pattern also includes those of full
length that are cut in slight bell shape.
To cut this jacket for a woman of
medium size four yards of material
twenty-seven or thirty-two inches
wide, or two and a half yards forty
four inches wide will be required, with
four and a half yards of embroidered
bands and seven yards of edging to
trim as illustrated.

The graduated circular flounce gains
in popularity as the season advances

graceful as well as smart. The ad.

ing is shaped with five gores and fito
with perfect smoothness over the hips

precision and care, and include jast
the amount of fulness required by

broidered pongee, but all the season's
materials are suitable. Thin goods,
such as nohair Swiss and grass linen,
are charming when so made and hung
over a separate foundation, while both
silks and wool are well adapted to the
style. The skirt is cut full length and
can be used plain or with a single

There is this peculiar
thing about Ayers Hair
Vigor-it is a hair food,
not a dye. Your hair does
not suddenly turn black,
look dead and lifeless.
But graduallythe old color
comes back,-all the rich,
dark color it used to have.
The hair stops falling,too.
