In an attemlpt at an extenuation of their alirgnment withl ttte Rpub licans against "hle 1)enocralie taiill bill, Senators Ransde'll and 'liihrnton each plead allegiance to his Stale. This pretense is as unusual as ii is illogical, if not ridiculous. The plea of "allegience to hii State" based on the protection of some sp'cial industry is as strained as it is untenabke. As Louisiana is a reliable and it revocable De, ocrat ic State, the op pcsilion of Senaltors Raunsdell and Thorntiilon has reflected a discreditl on the Delnocracy of tlih State. which is being rese, nted and will not soon he forgotten. Let it be granted that Senators a Ransdell and Thornton were sincere in their alignment with the Repub licans anod that their integrity is un impeachable, yet their act., deliber ate as it was, is unpardonable for the reason thal, being men of bril o liant intdlect and fully conscious of their obligations to their party and to themir State, it was their duty to stand steadfast and immovable when they were called to the criti cal test. It may also be conceded that the Democratic platform was not pledged to free sugar, but it was clearly proclaimed that the Demo cratic party was pledged to a revis ion of the tariff downward, and this pledge to reduce tiihe cost of living must be fulfilled. In tihe revision of the tariff it became evident that su gar must be placed on the free list.. When this was suggested, devised and incorporated in the bill, the sen.trors from Louisiana were war ranted and justified in their insist ence for the protection of sugar, a Louisiana industry, but when these 'two senators had failed, it became clearly their duty to submit to the, majority of the party by whom they had been honored. On the approval of the tariff bill the senators from Democratic Louisiana are the only ones who, as proclaimed Democrats, have voted wit.h the Republicans and have practically isolated themselves from a Democratic administration. What have these two senators gained? What can they expect from the party in the future? The protection of sugar, which was manifestly impossible, did not warrant their political self-sacri fice. Practically these two senators have blundered and have misrepre sented their State, whidh besides the sugar district which covers about one-fifth of the State, is as we repeat a ,reliably and irrevobaly Democratic State. The plea of allegiance to one's State can not be accepted as an ex planation or as an excuse in the justification of an act which is in defensible when loyalty to pa.liy and to principle being the issue is ig nored deliberately. Having chosen 'their course in their alignment with the Republi cans on an issue most vital to the Democracy of the State and the Na tion, the two Louisiana senators can expect little recognition or favors from the majority, who are growers of corn and cotton, which is unpro tected, and who have been loyal to the party in the most trying of emergencies.

FAShON NI By JUDIC CHOLLET Lingerie was never more entranc ingly pretty and dainty than at pres ent. Transparent effects are decidedly in the ascendant. Each garment is made of thin fabrics and shafed close ly, with the paramount idea of keep ing the figure slim, and all trimmings are put on without extra fullness. Shadow and val lace and a little Irish lace with fine batiste and nainsook daintily embroidered by hand and ma chine are put together with narrow beadings and fancy stitchery. These drawers are built on the latest model. They are closed at the sides, and the fullness at the back is regu lated by ribbons and casings, but tliey consist of only one piece of material. In one view the straight edges are trimmed, and in the other the edges are cut off and frills joined to them. CIIULAR CLOSED DRAWEIS. A still different effect could be obtain ed by scallopirg the straight edges and embroidering so:re design above. Washable silks 'snd crepe de chine are being fised for ::arments of this kind as well as the familiar batiste and the like. For medium size the draN\ ers will re quire one and seven-eighths yards of material twenty-seven inches- wide. with three and a half yards of iminer tion, one and three-quarter yards of edging to make without frills and three yards of embroidery one and three-quarter yards of insertion to make as shown in back view.

A n;tg lthe neoW things which have been recently bIrought out to lighten t[lg Ilurdens of the fair ones is a little dtevi l) by whih, any ordinary job of a-t ihry sharlening may be done on the sewing Imachine. The device consists of a snmall eimory wheel of the right conmipsition for sharpening knives. scissors and similar household utensils. antl this is mounted with a pulley wheel on a small metal table. This is pl.ae;l on the top of the sewing ma ihiine: table and slid along until the pulley wheel is in contact with the hIilt as it passes through the table top. There: is a small shelf in the proximity of the wheel which is set at just the right angle for scissors sharpening,.and with this any woman is enabled to sharpen a pair of scissors, whereas lindier ordlinary circumstances this is a rather difficult task. It is also possible to sharpen any other small piece of cutlery. Lotion For the Hands. An excellept lotion for whitening and softening the hands is made of equal parts of pure olive oil and glycerin, beaten together and perfumed with oil of violets. Where glycerin is objected to a paste made of two ounces of beeswax and one ounce of sweet alm onds may be used instead of the lotion. Place the ingretlients in a jar in a saucepan of boiling water and let them melt together. Stir until well mixed and when cold pot the paste and apply it as often as necessary to the hands or smear it over the sleeping gloves. Cleaning Paint. The easiest and quickest way of cleaning paint is to have two pails of water, one cold, to which a tablespoon ful of ammonia has been added, and one hot, with the addition of a little ammonia and soap powder. With a soft flannel wash the paint with the soapy water, then rinse with the cold water, using a wash leather instead of the flannel. and wring the leather fair ly dry.- Paint washed like this dries with a nice polish, which no using of hot water alone will impart. Canned Tomatoes. In stewing tomatoes for table use enough may be cooked to fill one or two jars. Stew with just a little salt. Have the jars and tops and rubber rings sterilized as for ordinary canning and place the jars in a whter bath or pan filled well up with lukewarm wa ter. Fill the jar quite to the top, pro ceeding otherwise as in ordinary can ning. It is sometimes easier to "put up" tomatoes gradually by this meth od than a dozen or more at a time. Tomato Marmalade. Peel and chop ripe, firm tomatoes, allowing for each pound the grated yellow rind of a lemon. Boil together till the tomatoes are soft, when to each pint add the juice of a lemon and a pound of sugar. Cook for about a half hour or until it will jelly when placed on a chilled plate. Put away as with other marmalade. To Whiten Linen. Handkerchiefs and white clothes are whitened in the following simple man ner: After they have been washed in the usual way lay them to soak overnight in clear water, into which cream of tartar has been put. A tea spoonful to a quart of water is the right proportion. When ironed they will be as white as snow. Marking Important Dates. On the first of each month, when yon turn a new page in your calendar, draw a pencil through the birthdays, anniversaries and other dates that you wish to remember. Busy people will find this helpful. Removing Paint Stains. To remove paint from .clothes im mediately rub with a rough rag wet with turpentine. This removes the stain and does not leave a mark. A Substitute For Hemstitching. When the hemstitching on bed linen begins to break apart cover it with a row of fine featherstitched braid and Mtitch neatly on each side. Raisin Pie. Boil one pound of seeded raisins In ufficient water to cover till tender. Add the juice and grated rind of one _emon. Sheriff's Sale.
