For Bridal Party
Conventional Correct Apparel Should Be Worn. 6ouvenirs In Memory of Occasion Are Presented to Ushers, Best Man and Bridesmaids. The costumes which may be worn by the entire bridal party are o£ such Infinite variety that It would be im possible in this brief account to give them all, says a welter In Good House keeping, but it is always * safe to follow the conventionally correct de scriptions given here. The bride is always dressed in white tulle, chiffon, satin, or—what is very new—cloth of silver, trimmed with old lace, if it is in the family. A train Is more Imposing, and should come from the shoulders, but if the veil Is of tulle instead of lace, that tony form the train and will give a very soft appearance. The accessories, such as slippers, stockings, gloves and bouquet, are All of white. In fact, no color of any kind is introduced, unless orange / blossoms are worn. If the bride Is divorcee or a widow, she should rear a smart afternoon or traveling gown, and a hat to match. A prayer book is often carried, while a few ^ orchids or gardenias may be pinned ™"8t the waist in place of the conven . tlonal bouquet. The groom,, ushers, and bride's escort wear the conventional after noon costume—cutaway coat, striped trousers, wMte or gray four-in-hand cravat, light or dark waistcoat, as preferred, patent leather shoes and white boutonniere. The bridesmaids are all dressed alike In any light color scheme, witli hat. to match. In England they often wear bands of silver or flowers in their haiç. The maid of honor and flower girls are dressed differently to distinguish them, and often there is a page and a flower girl dressed in fancy costume, after Reynolds or Van Dyke, who walk, together. The favorite color of the bride is usually chosen for her bridesmaids' costumes, and great individuality may be ex pressed in the costuming of the wed ding procession. The bride's mother wears a smart, elaborate afternoon gown of mauve or some other dignified color, and car ries w wears a small bouquet to FOR SUMMER COSTUME This midsummer hat is of blue straw with a charming lining of flesfi-colored georgette.

RAILROAD MEN BACK TO WORK 3,000 Maintenance of Way and Shop Workers. MOVE MAY BECOME GENERAL Chicago and Alton Re-Employs _ .... . ... Rail Executives of Course Make Claim That Step Is Made Possible by Wage Reduction Ordered by United States Labor Board. Claiming that It Is the first stimulat ing effect of the United States labor board's announcement of railway wage reduction, the Chicago and Alton re employed 3,000 maintenance of way and shop men. The shops at Bloom ington were reopened. Two thousand Bien were put to work. Two thousand more, It was announced, will be em ployed soon. - Predictions are made by railroad ex ecutives that the 250,000 railroad men aow out of work throughout the coun try will have been reabsorbed ■ by the various roads by the time the wage re ductions go Into effect on July 1. Rail chiefs were reticent ris to their Immediate plans, but' they pointed to two expected events which they claim will remove much of the sting from the reductions as far as the unions are concerned. „ One is the .working rules decision which tt ö ^ard probably will hand down aroùnd July 1. It Is known, according to officials of railroad Unes, that the unions will be awarded a definite code of universal rules, based on sixteen principles which will go far to equalizing the wage cut. These rules, It is said, will fix an eight hour day, protection of health, over time, and other fundamentals which will restore to the big brotherhoods their coveted differentials In pay. The other Is expected action on the part of the administration within the near future In lowering freight and _ _ _ passenger rates. The executives main taln, however, that the roads will be in no better position financially if rates are lowered and wages are not cut as much as 20 per cent. The employees have announced a refusal to accept more than a 12 per cent cut and the shop crafts have threatened a nation wide walkout If the reductions go above that figure. The board would give no Intimation as to the size of the cut. Eighty-seven roads will be affected by the decision. STRIKE AT ORGANIZED LABOR National Association of Manufacturers Renews Silly Talk of Danger of Union Domination. Manufacturers and business Inter ests are urged to take the offensive and resist the alleged attempt of labor leaders to dominate Industry, in the report of the committee on industrial betterment, health and safety, pre sented at the annual convention of the National Association of Manufactur ers. "The leaders of labor cannot, and apparently do not care to hide their determination to rule industry," said the report "The business existence of the members of this association Is Involved in defeating their aspira tions. A defensive battle Is a losing one. Therefore, the association should boldly expose to the public the at tempts of a minority to dominate busi ness and govern the state IB its own selfish interest." The report charges that union labor spent $1,377,204 during the year for administration, politics and strll«s. The c»mmlttee urged the "open shop" movement be stimulated by the extension ofjilans for Industrial rep resentation. Little Employment Increase. Increased employment in eight major Industries and decreases for the re maining six reported was shown In Labor department figures for April. The largest increase was In the auto mobile Industry at 25.2 per cent, others being woolen, 22.3 per cent, hosiery and underwear, 7.C per cent; men's clothing, 7 per cent ; silk, 5.2 per cent ; cigars, 5,6 per cent ; cotton flash ing, 1.7 per cent; boots and shoes, 8 per cent.

The stores will be operated by the Industrial Service Corporation of Colorado, or ganized last fall for the purpose of establishing a chain of 35 industrial stores In Colorado. Five located at Canop City, Florence, Salida, Crested Butte and Dolore« are now operating. 8uff?ring In Newfoundland.

An unemployment crista, due largely to the collapse of the fish ing Industry because of thé falling off in export demand, has led to serious disorders and more are threatened. DMIT ORIENTALS WILL NO Executive Council çf the American Federation of Labor Withholds Approval of Proposed Step. Approval of a proposal to organize' Japanese and Chinese workers öo the ® Dd west *™ withheld by the executive council of the American Federation of Labor. Becommendatlons that steps be taken to unionize the oriental workers In the West have been before the council some time, It was said, and plans are now being worked out to meet the sit uation. Labor officials said the council would not give Its approval to this organization work until It had made an investigation and decided that the proposed plans would "meet this grave situation." •«»> The United Mine Workers and some of the international unions, It was said, are already taking In Chinese and Japanese members. This question Is given a con spicuous place In the council's an nual report, which recommends that stringent government regulations be enforced to keep cheap oriental labor from entering the country and com peting with American workers. General Industrial Unemployment. Wages have been cut 6.4 per cent lit- the year ending April A, and the number of men employed in Industry has been reduced by one-fourth during the same period. These were the conclusions an nounced by the federal reserve board ns a result of a nation-wide inquiry int Industrial employment. Reports show that on April 1, 1920, there were 1,737,717 employees on the pay rolls of the Industries responding, while on April 1, 1921, the number had been decreased to 1,303,792.

Labor Situation in Denmark. The protracted negotiations between Danish employers and employees, both direct and In the last Instance before the official mediator, having proved futile, the lockout notices have no w taken effect within the iron in dustry, the brlckmaklng industry and the wood Industry. The men have replied by sending out second strike notices, referring to all organized hands employed by the Union of Dan i S h Employers, to take effect Imtne dlately. This means that some 170,000 to 175,000 hands will be Idle. At tempts, however, are being made to bring about a settlement In the elev enth hour, but It Is extremely problem atical whether they will achieve the desired results. SOVIET GOVERNMENT CONDEMNED BY A. F. L. Organized labor in the United States must not take any action which would be construed as an assistance to, or approval of, the soviet government of Rus sia, the executive council of the American Federation of Labor warned in Its annual report. The council condemns the so viet government as not being representative of the Russian people, and declares it to be antagonistic to the union labor movement. The report is understood to criticize the socialist party, for its alleged support of the com munist and other radical ele ments In this country. Employees May Buy Stock. .

M J. Cochran, of the Eastern District of Tennessee. An appeal will probably be taken. Geftt^s L.

THE WAES CHEMICAL CO., Dallai, MAROONED FOR THREE YEARS Sailor's Long Period on Loneliness on Small Island Located in the South Seas. Marooning occasionally brings about a modern Crusoe; Just as it did with Alexander Selkirk, who was put ashore at Juan Fernandez, and whose adven tures gave Defoe the foundation for "Robinson Crusoe." The trading schooner, Queen Charlotte, passing a small Island of the Marquesas in the South seas, landed her boat to Investi gate the smoke of n tire, as It was un derstood the Island was uninhabited. Here was found a United States sea man, who had been put ashore with three shipmates by their captain, on account of their mutinous conduct. The three others had died, but the man from Connecticut had contrived to live on the fish he caught, and the breadfruit and coconuts and other prod ucts which he could gather. When rescued after three years' loneliness, his utensils consisted of great shells, and two cups which he possessed, made from the skulls of his com panions. Possibly.
