OR the morning a well-cut, well-hung skirt of pique, duck or linen, with a pretty shirtwaist of the same color, s as smart an outfit as is at all nec essary. There are many good designs for sample percales and ginghams, especially the silk ginghams, which are made with very little trimming, and that trimming of inexpensive em broidery. A good model is the pleat ed skirt, or skirt with attached flounce; the waist is pleated to match or has a box pleat just in the center with a small straight band of the new filet lace or embroidery, the collar being in one piece, with a straight band. The foulard and India silk gowns in plain colors are also sanart for morning, and the black and "kWilte checked ginghams which look so much like silk are in great de mand.-Harper's Bazar. Novelty of the Season. The dress of two linens, a plaided fid a plain one, is a novelty of the ieason. A blue plaid or a sprigged flower pattern with plain cream flounces, a collar and turned up ruffs showing soft lawn onc; beneath, or a coral scheme with paler pink embel lishmentl are attractive models. With_. tese colored linens the em broidery on the white or creamy col lars is in a contrasting shade of the color of the gown, or of the same tone as the collar. A white linen dress, with collar, cuffs and belt of cream color, embroidered in the same creamy tint, is exceedingly cool and pretty. Light Weight Midsummer Costume. Among the fabrics of the season is a sort of zebeline, iron gra: in color, with a surface showing white Rairs, which is very similar to the material gri atly liked for cold weather wear; . of course it is very light in weight.

S OLD LANDMARKS GONE Famous Tennessee Postoffices Obliterated by the March of Progress _WM" swanameass WRR B The establishment of 300 free rural delivery routes in Tennessee and the consequent abolition of from 650 to 700 postoffices has wiped from the pos tal map the majority of the historical towns in the state. New and pros perous towns have sprung up near the villages which were notable in the early days of the republic, and they have been selected as distributing points for the mail. A striking instance of this process is Bean station, Grainger county, where William Bean in 1769 built the first cabin put up by a white man in Ken tucky, Tennessee or western North Carolina. This office will hereafter be supplied from Tate Spring. Another noted office that becomes extinct is Nollichucky where Jacob Brown opened the first store in Ten nessee or Kentucky or, in fact, any where south of the Ohio River, in 1772, and where it is thought that Russell Bean, the first child born in Tennes see first saw light. It was for brav ery in a battle with Indians at this point that John Sevier won the cog nomen, Nollichucky Jack. A few hundred yards from this office is the gigantic beech tree which bears the famous inscription. "D. Boon cilled a bar in the year 1760." But it is thought that the pioneer had been in what are now Tennessee and Ken tucky before he carved his name on the tree. 'In North Carolina is the battlefield of Kings Mountain, where John Sevier turned the tide of the Revolution by defeating Gen. Ferguson and his Brit ish hosts. Sycamore Shoals poetof fice, where Sevier of Tennessee, Col. Campbell of Virginia and the South Carolina forces met to drill for the fight, cannot be found now as a post office. A free rural delivery route is now supplying the town. Farmington, Marshal county, which lacked only one vote of being made the capital of the state instead of Nashville, has been abolished on ac-S count of rural delivery. A route leading from Jefferson City, Jefferson county, passes and supplies what was formerly Loyton, the place wh'ere Davy Crockett met and won Polly Finley. Here the first Sunday school in Tennessee was organized. In pioneer days the Louisville, Ky., and Charleston, S. C., stage coach line had its main station at this point. The town which came near being the first capital of the state, Kings port, Sullivan county, has suffered the same fate, owing to a mail route run ning from Fall Branch. Kingsport was once the home of John Sevier, and he is said to have at one time decided to make it the capital of the state instead of Jonesboro, and failed to do so owing to the hatred he had for a prominent citizen of the town. A route from Loudon, Tenn., takes in the small office at Old Fort Loudon, where was the first white fort in the state. Campbell's Station, Knox county, the birthplace of Admiral Farragut, exists no longer as a mail point. CRITICISM OF GOLF Philosopher Complains Because It Has Not Reinforced Our Vocabulary Six days out of a week Jones is a hardheaded and rather shortspoken business man, out when he gets his feet up on a Sunday he is something of a philosopher. "I give thanks daily for ping pong," declared he one day when I had hap pened to stroll in. It was evident that he desired to draw me out. "And yet," said I, argumentatively, "the game seems to me to lack sig nificance-even distinction." "Obviously," he replied, not a little petulantly, "its spiiatual appeal is not large. I was about to say that I am grateful to ping pong because it has proved the entering wedge for tennis. This year marks the renaissance of tennis." "Then you play," said I. "No," he replied, "but I believe in I tennis, because, like all other Anglo Saxon games, it has reinforced our vo- I cabulary. Sports should be the feeders of 'aziguage. It is tae test of the true 1 virility of an amusement that it lends 1 something to popular parlance." "Instance briefly;" suggested I. .: "Why, take tennis," said he, "the I game has probably: furnished us with f the: word 'stroke.' So. we say a man has made a good stroke in business.. I will admit that it is a matter of uis- 0 pute whether it was tennis or cricket that first gave the word. In either a case my ponit 'is made. c "Baseball gives us the excellent metphor for an actress, novelist or professional man, who has met with popular favor, and who we say has made a 'hit.'

The Southern Pacific and Houston and Texas Central r reight Department will shortly inaugurate a very radicaL improvement in the diatter of handling perishable commodities and products. raised along the several lines of the companies in question. The improve. ment is in the matter of a first-classi refrigerator car line, which will be put into effect July 22d. These refrigera. tor cars will belong solely to the com-. panies in question and will be operated on a weekly schedule between all main line pointo and Fort Worth, venison, Sherman, Fnis. Hiearne and Houston, leaving Foi't Worth every Tuesday at 1:30 p. m., south-bound, Denison every Tuesday at 7:00 a. m., south bound, Sherman every Tuesday at 8:00 a. m., south bound, Ennis every Wednesday at 7:25 a. m., south bound, Hearne. every Thursday at 6:00 a. m., south bound and Houston every Friday at 8:55 a. m., east uound. This new' freight service will be of great convenience to the patrons of the Southern Pacific and Houston and' Texas Central, inasmuch as it will per mit less than carload lots to secure the benefit of a first-class refrigera. tion, and enable the small shipper to deliver his perishable products to all ,owns located along the Sunset-Cen. tral lines. It is the determination of the freight officials to increase the service to semi or tri-weekly as the business may warrant.-Houston Post. Rall)K Voorhees, the blind philan thropist of Clinton, N.
