It seems like sacrilege to treat a deli

but it is the fashion to do so.
The dyed laces, made to match the
gown exactly, are worn at evening func

but more often in the shape of a deep

One of the newest articles of wear in
the lace line is a lace collar which is
made out of a yard or so of piece lace.
The cape part is cut circular to fit over
the shoulders. In the front there are
two wide stoles that hang below the
waist line. The whole is edged with
a very narrow piping of liberty silk. An
other lace collar, made out of piece lace,
is circular, with the upper edge gath
ered upon a band of white silk which is
fitted to the neck in such a way that it
lies flat, below the stock. The lace
collar is really a ruffle with a border
of white chiffon ruching no wider than
a match.-Chicago Examiner.

Opportunities in the Navy
By HON. WILLIAM H. MOODY,
Secretary of the Navy.
For the young man who enters the navy there are advantages and
opportunities which the average layman never realizes. Gen. James H.
Wilson, himself an officer of the army, in an ad
dress to young men not long ago advised them to en
ter the navy in preference to the army because the
chances are larger in the sea service than in the land
' ;. service, and Gen. WVilson, a man of wide experience,
knew whereof he spoke.
There are, or at least there will be when the
quota provided for under the last naval appropria
tion act is filled, 31,ooo enlisted men in the navy of all
classes and grades. Every effort is made to obtain
the best men available for the service. and liberal inducements are held
out to young men to enter it. Never before has the character of the per
sonnel been so high as at present, and it is improving every year.
There is no doubt that within a few years the United States will not
only have the strongest sea fighting force in the world, but it will alsc
have better men in its navy than any other nation.
Apprentices are enlisted between the ages of 15 and 17 years. Their
education begins either at the training stations at Newport, R. I., or at
San Francisco, where the course is from six to nine months, and if
then fitted they are assigned to the regular cruising ships. Aboard
ship the apprentice is taught many duties which fit him for the sea.
There are various promotions for those who prove themselves effi
cient, and with each promotion there is, of course, an increase of pay.
When advanced to ordinary seaman the pay is $19 a month and that
of seaman $24 a month. From this grade the men are promoted to
petty officers and to the grade of warrant officers, such as warrant ma
chinists, in which the pay runs from $1,2oo to $1,8oo a year. The law
further provides that a certain number of warrant officers may be
promoted each year to receive commissions. The pay of petty offi
cers ranges from $30 a month in the seaman branch to $6o and $7o in
the yeomaan and messmen branches. Every attempt is made by the
navy department to make the service attractive to the men, and that is
so proven by the number of reenlistmnts each year.

Pastor of Temple Baptist Chorch. Los Angeles. Cal.
ATIONAL prosperity is in the air. Everybody from the mes
senger boy to the millionaire is trying to double his income.
Even the United States senator takes more interest in watch
ing the ticker than in serving the interests of his country.
The wages of the hod carrier have gone beyond the income
of the ordinary preacher, the reporter and the school teacher.
There seems to be no limit to other prosperity.
I rejoice in this prosperity, but I have seen dollar
wheat before. I remember the panic which followed in '93.
I am not an alarmist. I love the meadowlat k more than any
other bird, because he sings when the clouds are thickest.
The great men in Biblical times were possessed of vast wealth, yet
we do not think of them as men of money and finance or as stock ma
nipulators as we are wont to think of Morgan and Schwab and other
giants of the financial world of to-day. Moses was rich beyond all
estimation, but we think of him only as a friend of God, not as a Mor
gan. Joseph was the richest man in Egypt, yet we wouldn't think of
comparing him with Schwab. God forbid. We think of Joseph in
his loyalty to purity and righteousness.
The magazines don't print pictures of Joseph, neither do they
publish a detailed story of his life. They don't tell how he went into
Egypt a slave and how by successful manipulation of the stock ex
change by securing a great corner he became the richest man in the
country and died worth a million dollars. Of course not, but they print
volumes about certain American men who have accumulated vast for

The Motor and the Highway
By W. B. WOODGATE.
HE ordinary non-motorist enjoys the use of the road as a
T birthright, and has not to thank statute for the same. Any
restrictions upon the birthright are due to statute enacted
pro bono publico.
On the other hand, it does not seem that the motorist
has any similar birthright to the road; no exact case in
point appears in law reports, but the theory of road dedi
cation, and the history of roads and of their traffic, seem
very conclusively to show that, without the consent of the
owner of the soil, the motorist-in the absence of statutory
license-would be a trespasser pn any highway, and might be warned
off or removed by force if contumacious.
The class of motors for which extension of speed is asked be
longs practically exclusively to a section of society that has time and
money to spend on motorism as a pastime, and as a pastime only.
It is for those who travel, touring far afield, that the concession is
demanded. Their mamin plea is that there are many uninhabited
stretches of rural road along which a motor may safely career at high
velocity with little or no public danger, and that the existing statute
is vexatious, where the letter of law as to 12 miles an hour is enforced
by police espionage in such unfrequented stretches.
Now, when children of the poor, whose facilities and locality of
pastime are far more limited than those of the wealthy classes, desire
to multiply hoops in thoroughfares, or to seek enjoyment at im
prompts football or other games on the macadam, they are promptly
tabooed by the peiace; and divers local councils very-properly enact
by-laws against the dangers of children's hoops in the roadways.
The advocates of privilege for increased speed frequently adopt in
the press the parrot phrase 'the motor has come to stay,' and upon
this basis arguments have been raised by correspondents and editors
that a new social duty devolves ex officio on all owners of horseflesh
to break in their animals to face motor traffic quietly. It is doubtless
true that horses can be educated to abandon fear of railway traffic, or
of noise of gunpowder, and like alarms; those who so educate their
animal do so for their own convenience, but in view of our hypothesis
that the hose and his owner have a birthright to the road, and the
motorist only a statutable license, the demand that a horse owner
hould lternatively get rid of his animal or spend time or money is
ruii.ga it to zmotor alarms appears to savor of selfishness, not tc

Beautiful Verses on Death
The saddest and the sweetest things
ever written were concerning death
and love. Montgomery, Scott, Long
fellow, Lindley and Bourdillon. and
many others, found their tenderest
sentiments on these subject. Lindley
wrote his sweetest gems on the death
of a young lady. Just such another
would he have written had he lived
until our loved one died.
"'lFou art gone from our gaze 'ike a beau
Thy grace and thy beauty no more w::: be
Tho' ;ost to sight, to memory dear.
Thou ever wi.t remain;
The only hope our Learts can cheir,
The hope to mret again."
"The air is full of farewels to the dying
And mournings for the dead.
There is no flock, however watched and
But one dad lamb s :there;
There is no fir-side, howltv I defended.
But Las one vacant chair."
"Friend after friend departs.
Who has not lost a friend?
There is no union here of hearts
That finds not here an end."
And Longfellow says by way of con
'There is no death. What seems N is
This life of mortal breath
Il but a suburb of the life elysian.
Whose portal we call death."
All this is very solemn and very sad,
but it has its counterpart when they
wrote of love. Scott says:
"In peace love tunes the shepherd's reed,
In war he mounts the warrior's steed,
In courts is seen in gay attire,
In hamlets dances on the green.
Love rules the camp, the court, the grove.
And men below and saints above.
For love is Heaven, and Heaven is love."
Solomon says: "Love is as strong
as death," and "God from necessity is
love," and "Love thy neighbor as thy
And Wordswo th says: "A mother's
love is the holiest thing alive."
A mother's love! I was watching
the eagerness with which our neigh
bor, Mrs. Munford, was cherishing the
memory of her lost daughter, the
sweet girl who had charge of the li
brary books committee, and whose
memory now seems like a beautiful
dream-a dream to us, but not to the
mother, who never will forget. When
the Cherokee club prepared to make
a memorial to Mary, she pleaded for
the privilege of placing it where Mary
was wont to sit and have sweet com
padionship with those she loved. Her
beautiful home was nothing, and
money was nothing. She said the li
brary is in debt $500 or $600. "Please
let me pay it off, for Mary felt like it
was her debt. Let me have the floor
varnished and have chairs bought in
stead of benches, and I want some
nicer tables for Mary's sake. Please let
me have a memorial for Mary here and
give it her name-The Mary Munford
Memorial library?" And so it was
done. Who could refuse a mother's
tears for the memory of her loving
daughter, and so it was done and the
sign over the door will be the Mary
Munford Memorial library. But this isnot
all of a mother's love. She is going to
buy the books that Mary would have
bought and make a donction each and

WHALE'S MYSTERIOUS ENEMY.
Large Marine Creature In Alaskan
Waters That Waged War Up
on the Leviathans.
While operating a fishery on Admiralty
island, southeastern Alaska, last sum
mer, my attention and the attention of
the fishing crew were almost daily di
rected to a large marine creature that
would appear in the main channel of
Seymour canal and in our immediate
vicinity, writes a correspondent of For
est and Stream.
There are large numbers of whales of
the species rorqual there, and the mon
ster seemed to be their natural enemy.
The whales generally travei in schools
of two or more, and while at the sur
face to blow one would be singled out
and attacked by the fish, and a battle
royal was soon in order.
It is the nature of the rorqual to make
three blows at int !rvals of from two to
three minutes' each. and then sound
deep and stay beneath the surface for
30 or 40 ninutes.
As a whale would come to the surface.
there would appear always at the
whale's right side and just about where
his head would connect with the body,
a great long tail or fin. "judged by five
fishermen and a number of Indians after
seeing it about 15 times at various dis
tances," to be about 24 feet long, two
and one-half feet wide at the end, and
tapering down to the water, where it
seemed to be about 18 inches in diam
eter, looking very much like the blade
or fan of an old-fashioned Dutch wind
mill. This S-eat club was used on the
back of the unfortunate whale in such
a manner that it was a wonder to me
that' every whale attacked was not in
stantly killed. Its operator seemed to
have perfect control of its movements.
and would bend It back till the end
would touch the water, forming a horse
shoe loop. then with a sweep it would
be straightened and brought over and
down on the back of the whale with a
whack that could be heard for several
miles. If the whale was fortunate
enough to submerge his body before the
blows came, the spray would fly for a
distance of 100 feet from the effect of
the strike, making a report as loud as a
yacht's signal gun.
What seemed most remarkable to me
was that no matter which way the at
tacked whale went, or how fast (the
usual speed is about 14 knots), that
great club would follow right along by
its side and deliver those tremendous
blows at intervals of about four or five
seconds. It would always get in from
three to five blows at each of the three
times the whale would come to the sur
face to blow. The whale would gener
ally rid itself of the enemy when it took
its deep sound, especially if the water
was 40 fathoms or more deep.
During the day the attack was always
off shore, but at night the whales would
be attacked in the bay and within 400
yards of the fishery.
I do not know of any whales being
killed, but there were several that had
great holes and sores on their backs.
Questioning the Indians about it. I
was told that there was only one, that
it had been there for many years, and
that it once attacked an Indian canoe
and with one stroke of the great elub
mashed the canoe into splinters, killing
and drowning several of its occupants.
PLEA AGAINST A PARK.
Ei1uest Argument Sm Vv at
Keeping the YellUowste
Not a park, but a wilderness, full of
wild beauty and natural disorder, may
we keep the place as nature left it, dis
turbing no landslide where it lies, no
natural dam of logs and stones heaped
here by mountain freshet, no havoc at
windstorm or avalanche. The windfall,
with its shaggy spreading roots full of
matted earth and stone, rapidly being
covered with grass and moss, and the
river bed full of bleached driftwood,
each has its own rare quality of pictur
esqueness, its own fitting place in this
wild harmony. There is beauty, eves

and the excellent stone embankments
which keep them from slipping down
the mountain sides into the swift
streams below, for they detract from
its wild perfection. We may behold na
ture in its softer and more comely as
pects almost anywhere, but every year,
with the spread of population in our
country, it becomes more dimcfrlt to
preserve genuine wilderness places
where hill and forest and stream have
been left exactly as nature made them.
Already our indomitable pioneers have
driven the wilderness into the very fast
nesses of the mountains, so that only
remnants now remain. And this great
Yellowstone park remnant has been for
