HERE'S A NATTY. MODISH COSTUME
IF this yoang woman were u<»i so extremely modish and up to date lookin
one might almost Imagine that she had stepped out of a picture fram
instead of between the two doors seeu In the lilustratiou. She is clad 1
pongee and shantung material* that are meeting with the favor of every
body this season. The roogn silken fabrics make up so becomingly that it i
no wonder women have placed them among their favorite materials this sun

combined charmingly in one costume. Her coat is of striped black and -white
shantung, with the collar and one flap outlined with black silk, while the skirt
Is of plain pongee, light tan In color, of a slightly rougher texture than the
coat. The jet buttons on the shirt waist add to the effect, and it is height
ened still further by the extremely smart long black silk sash. Observe the
band of striped shantung of the coat material around the bottom of the skirt.
NOT THE "HOBBLE SKIRT," BUT NEAR IT

La^^ the other day when she caught sight of one of the newest "tied

ride or attempt to walk." The lady in the picture is not wearing a real
"hobble skirt," but a close relative of the latest Parisian 'node, a "two
waisted" affair. She was caught by the camera as she left her victoria for a
few minutes' shopping. The dress was beautifully made of white mulL The
cash, of baby satin, contrasted well with the body of the gown.
A few days ago at the departure of one of tbe big ocean liners for Europe

on a youn? woman. The costume was entirely of black silk. The wearer was
B very slender person and walked with seeming ease, although it was hard to
understand how she could get about with a sash confining her lower limbs just
about the knees. Certainly among all the outre fashions which Paris has sent
us in recent years this method of confining one's activities by a sash tied
around the knees is prerty nearly "the limit," as slangy people say.

Louis Drucke. Whose Rise to
Fame Was Rapid.
j.: : ...- ■•■ ( ..: w
Louis Drucke, known in Texas as
"the pride of the Brazos." now a suc
cessful pitcher for the New York Na
tionals, was a college student one year
ago. In three months he accomplished
the step from college baseball to serv
ice in the major league, his minor
league experience being brief, but long
enough for Manager McGraw to recog
nize the lad's unusual ability.
Drucke graduated from Texas Chris
tian university of Waco in .lune of last
year and Immediately joined the Dal
las team of the Texas league. Drucke
pitched twice a week and lost only
two or three games. lie was consid
ered the best pitcher in the Texas
league despite his lack of experience
in professional baseball, and that was
an honor, considering the fact that
several twirlers from that league were
corralled by major league scouts lasr
McGraw closed a deal for the pur
chase of Drucke last July. or. rather,
he then exercised an option and
bought the youngster's release for $2.
--000. But Drucke's experience with
McGraw dates back to the spring of
I'JOS. wheu the Giants made their first
trip to Texas for training purposes.
The Giants that season won some
thing like thirty-four exhibition games
in the Lone Star State. They were
bealen only once, and Drucke. then a
green college pitcher, turned the trick.
Ty Cobb on Port Siders.
Cobb declares that left handed bat
ters can solve the sharp breaking
curve throwu by left handed pitchers—
a curve that is too much for most of
them—by crowding into the plate, step
ping forward on the ball and spearing
it before it breaks. This, he says, is a
comparatively easy thing with only a
little practice. Most left handed bat
ters. Ty says, have grown accustomed
to imagining themselves buffaloed by
the port side pitchers and fall feebly
from afar when that curve comes over.
By crowding boldly inward they can
get busy with the ball and will soon
find themselves making all kinds ot
hits off the delivery that has so long

The Praise That Comes From ;
Thankful Colfax People.
One kidney remedy never fails.
Colfax people rely upon it.
That remedy is Donri'd Kidney Pilla.
Colfax testimony proves it always reliable. :
Mrs. D. K. Jeffers,, Morton street, Colfax,
Wash., says: "Last summer I b^tl ■ very
sick spell and came near d>ir#. I was in Ved
for about a month and the docton said that I
had kidney disease. Tt was impn-sible for me
to lie on my right side and for two wet ks I
had to be propped up in bed. I lost fifty
pounds in weight, had a poor appetite and
was all run down. The doctor helped me
somewhat, but 1 continued to wffe> from
pains across my back. My limbs were swollen
and my kidney? did not do their wi.rk as they
Bbould. I felt tired and devoid of ambition
and some days had sinking spells. When a
lady, who had taken Doan's Kidney Pills, ad
vised me to try them, I did so and the con- ;
tents of the first box made a marked improve
ment. I continued using this remedy and I
can say that it helped me in every way. I

and ecj much better health.''
