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

' A. —Get as much outdoor life as
possible. Eat nourishing food. Get

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

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

"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
"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
"I've got a great idea!" cried
Arthur suddenly, after gazing at
her admiringly for a few minutes.
"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

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."

Then they were wed. and "happy lived"

Editor, The Press—l am a sub
scriber of The Press and got real
interested in letters on love and
matrimony. 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,

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
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.

money, but I have got two strong

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

also, which I now enjoy myself and

playhouses and clean social dances,

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
