CONCERT WAS SUCCESS. A large and appreciative audience greeted the musicians who took part in the splendid concert given last night at the Auditorium the ater under the auspices of Our lAdy of Jxmrdes' cathedral. In fact, the audience was so demonstrative in Its applause that most every number was encored twice. The Elks' quartet, composed of J. Hill, C. Eaton, W. Clark and George W. M. Chant, was especially well re ceived, and although they were an nounced on the program in two numbers, "The Sweetest Flower" and "Until the Dawn," the audience brought them back three times in each case. The quartet is well bal anced and their repertoire of songs was so varied as to make them ex tremely entertaining. Mrs. Arthur Brush, soloist of the Congregational church and a late arrival in this city, is a charming adidtiou to musical circles here. Mrs. Brtlah sang "With Verdure Clad" from "Creation," and re sponded to a hearty encore by sing ing the "Lark Song" from Brown ing's "Pippa Passes." .

Weir, who played the violin obligate Carl Grissen, a well known violin ist, played the "Witches' Dance," by Paganinl, and responded to an encore, and W. Orion, the other in strumentalist on the program, play ed a selected cornet solo.

PLEASE TELL ME WOMEN'S QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY Cynaftlhina Gr®y Dear Miss Grey—Can you give me a remedy for a constant cold and catarrh in a child? A. —The child may have an ob struction of the nose. Consult a physician. Dear Miss Grey—l am a boy of 16, and am very small. How can 1 grow? INQUISITIVE. ' A. —Get as much outdoor life as possible. Eat nourishing food. Get eight or 10 hours' sleep every night. Take Y. M. C. A. physical exercise. Consult a physician, who can tell by a careful general examination whether there is any organic cause or whether you are suffering only delayed or poor development. Dear Miss Grey—What can you suggest to cure one of an hallucina tion? CONSTANT READER. A. —A person entertaining an hal lucination may or may not be aware of his false idea. He may complain of some touch, taste, odor or sound which does not exist. He should be treated by a nerve specialist of rep utation. The mental treatment tin der direction of an expert promises good results. If he realizes his condition he may fight the hallucination with his own reason and will. Relief of the mind from worries and business de tails, ample rest and sleep, with outdoor life, help build up strength of the brain and nervous system. Dear Miss Grey—What can I do for constant headaches? What will make the eyes strong? A. L. T. A. —Constant headaches may be due to eye defects. If yours are weak (as you suggest) you should consult the best eye expert avail able, and if necessary, get proper glasses. These will relieve the strain and thus the headaches. Other causes of headaches are nasal catarrh and congestion, and Intes tinal indigestion and constipation. These possibilities must be remem bered In treating and persistent headaches. BY FRANK H. WILLIAMS "Now that spelling has been re vised," laughed Arthur Bates, "there's only one way for us to achieve fame. Flora, and that's by revising the dictionary." "All right; let's do it," pretty Flora Price smiled back at him. "Where is the ponderous tome?" questioned Arthur, and when she had pointed out the volume to him he brought it to the big table and placed it directly under the student lamp. "Of course," suggested Arthur, "we don't have to begin at the be ginning. We can start anywhere we want to." He flopped the book open. "Let's see," he continued, "what have we here? Ah, a shoot ing star —that's easy, and it cer tainly needs revision." Arthur wrote rapidly on a sheet of paper and then passed the sheet of paper over to the girl. " 'Shooting star,' " the girl read, "'a good excuse.' A good excuse for what?" she queried. But her rosy cheeks belied her pretended ig norance. "I've got a great idea!" cried Arthur suddenly, after gazing at her admiringly for a few minutes. A READER. "Well make this 'Love's Diction ary.' We'll revise the volume t to suit lovers!" For a moment the girl appeared to he on the verge of saying some thing, but she thought better of the matter and remained silent. "Now what have we got next?" murmured Arthur, turning the leaves of the dictionary rapidly. Presently he laughed gleefully and wrote manfully for a few mo ments. Again he passed the sheet over to the girl. "Read it out loud," Arthur requested. " 'Waist'," she complied, " 'that which an arm should be put around. Waste, a dark night, a* pretty girl and a young fellow, during which the former is not done." The girl passed the sheet back to Arthur. "Extremely silly," she declared. "Here's another," Arthur cried. "Lisen to this one. 'Bravery—what a girl shows when she tells a bash ful man who is in love with her that she is in love with him." "Really, your definitions are not at all good," Flora declared when Arthur had finished. "I'm sure your revised dictionary will be merely a work of love —it's certain you'll not be paid in fame or money for such atempts. But here you've been doing all the revising. Let me do a little." Arthur shoved the book across the table to her. His heart beat furiously as he watched her rapid ly turn the leaves of the big book. She was so extremely pretty and he was so greatly In love with her and so afraid to tell her. Present ly she found the word she wished. Then she wrote on the sheet of paper and handed the latter to Arthur.

THE SPOKANE PRESS, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7 WHEN VALENTINE WAS YOUNG. BY FRANCES GIL BREATH INGERBOLL. When Valentine was'very young; In grandma's time, you know; He wrote a letter to his love, Tied with a ribbon bow. He told her that the "rose was red"; The "violets were blue"; The "pink was sweet, and so was she"; And vowed that he'd be true. He swore that "if she loved as he," "No knife" he ever knew. Was sharp enough, nor strong enough, To "cut their love in two." His heart with hers "would beat as one." Till "brown hair turned to gray"— Then they were wed. and "happy lived" Forever and a day.

To serve two starchy vegetables, such as sweet and white potatoes, at one meal, is one form of waste.

I agree with the gen tleman that signed himself "De spised Farmer," that the girls— and women also —nowadays only think of a nice home and nice things in it and beautiful clothes to wear. Boys and men, be wise; think before you leap. Now, I am a widow, my age I won't give you right now, for I am always taken to be much younger than I am; but I am five feet six inches, weigh about 128 pounds, have brown eyes, dark brown hair, very Jolly disposition, am healthy, work downtown every day. I am not on the list to get married —all I want is to get acquainted with some nice man as a friend. Of course, they say friendship turns to love, but I will risk that. Now, if some nice man, not over 35 or 36, tall, light complexion, blue eyes, cares to write to me would be glad to answer. Would prefer a black smith or a railroad man. Address all letters care The Press. Jolly Browneyed Widow. Editor, The Press—As I have been reading your letters on love and matrimony I have become a lit tle interested. At least enough so that I would like to say to Despised Farmer I wonder what he thinks a woman wants to get married for unless she wants to have a home. A woman that is not looking out for a home, in my mind, is no more than a tramp. One that really wants a home doesn't always ex pect a mansion on Cannon hill, nor does she expect to roost on the limb of a tree like an owl. I may be on the market soon for a wife myself, and believe me, I will take the one that wants a home every time, for the one that does not want one would not take care of one if she had it. One Who Knows. Editor, The Press —I have been reading "letters on love and matri mony" with great interest. I am looking for a partner. I am five feet 10 inches, weigh 193 pounds, 24 years old. I have not got any money, but I have got two strong and willing arms. I do not use tobacco nor liquor. Now, I would like to heard from some young lady between the ages of 16 and 24. Address, L. H. S., care Press. Editor, The Press —I have been a reader of The Press ever since I came to Spokane, and think it is a good paper. Of late I have been taking special notice of "letters on love and matrimony," which I think are very good. While I am only a mechanic, I average about $1000 a year and could support a wife, but the kind would have to be quite as humble as myself to live on that amount. I am fond of a nice, comfortable home and like outside amusements also, which I now enjoy myself and would certainly do after marriage and take my wife with me, to good playhouses and clean social dances, where people try to cultivate high er thoughts morally and eliminate that which is most detrimental to society. If I could ever win a girl she THE NEW SUITS with shorter seven-eighths pleated—very are smoother. A Nl) there you have it in a nutshell. There has heen a great deal of talk ahout the Russian in vasion, ahout very loose, bloused jackets that fit nowhere; about a belt on every suit that's worn; ahout skirts that have a greater yardage at the waist than at the hem, but pleated*into the skirtband at the waist. Perhaps this Russian influence will make itself felt in dresses a little later; perhaps children's dresses will follow a general Russian scheme. But American women appreciate tritnuess too much to adopt, for street wear, garments so loose. Street suits for spring and summer 1910 will follow the ideas we have outlined above. Materials are not so rough, although there are some very pretty diagonals. Fine French serges and worsteds, stripes, broken plaids, mannish materials, and shepherd's checks will have the call. Coat lengths are from 30 to 36* inches; a little fuller over the hips, and flare slightly. The great, deep lapels, many of them closing at the waist line or below it, is their strongest feature. You will find very little trimming except on lapels, which are generally plain, but sometimes of satin or moire, in the shade of the garment. Suit skirts are of round length—their gores developing into pleats, generally knife pleats—just below the hip line. Sometimes the pleats are interrupted by folds or straps just above the knee, but they always extend from just below the waist to the skirts' hems. Coats are not quite tight fitting; more nearly seven-eighths; very trim and dashing in these shorter lengths. Sleeves are a triflo larger, but long and close at the hand. Everything is very plain and tailored. HUNDREDS OF SUITS—SPRING PUR CHASES — Are Here at prices from $15 to $<>5 at in tervals of $2.50. AND MATRIMONY could rest assured that she would never have to even think of earn ing any part of our keep, and she must not worry, as that Is what discourages men above all things, I think. I am 28 years of age, and for looks, just ordinary, but enjoy the best of health and would enjoy correspondence with any girl who thinks I have any idea of life as it should be. I am, as ever, Humble Mechanic. Editor The Press —I am a reader of The Press and very much inter ested in your column of love and matrimony. I am a young man, 27 years of age, with some ability; have been in Spokane only a short time and very little acquainted. I would like to meet a young girl from 24 to 27 years of age, who is tired of being alone in this world, and would like to have a companion and live a happy life. Address all letters, M.
