Pay ment is to be made ’ not earlier than the declaration of peace.” Some proprietors of Coney Island amusement resorts have attempted the practice of admitting persons free to their places and charging them 10 cents at the exit gates, thus expecting to avoid payment of the war tax on admission tickets. For almost a hundred years no one thought of making thread other than linen and silk. Cotton was not so much as thought of. Then Na poleon, who had been devastating Europe, thought he would strike a blow' at the silk industry of Ham burg. and caused the stocks of silks to be burned. The thread makers of Paisley thus found thfeir supplies of raw material cut off, and they had to look about to find a substitute. Cotton was tried, and was found to answer the purpose so well that the basis of an entirely new' nidustry was laid—the manufacture of “cot ton" thread. From this time on the progress of the new industry was steady. An old-time plow, probably used by the early Spaniards around San Antonio, was upturned on the old fair ground by workmen of a con struction company. The plow has a three-foot turning blade, capable of making a three-foot furrow, and al though the wooden handles have rot ted away the size of the iron sup ports indicates the plow must have been about twelve feet in length It is believed the old instrument was used by the early Spaniards with several yoke of oxen. -o— MILLER LUMBER COMPANY ruke the lowest price.

I Grove-Reed Co. General Merchandise AUTUMN OFFERINGS OF COATS AND SUITS POINTS ABOUT SKIRTS—THE VO GUE OF TUCKS—CONSERVA TION OF WOOL NECESSITATES NARROW SKIRTS. New York. Sept. 28. This is the I harvest season; the watchlul waiting, and the hard labor of the summer j months are being rewarded. Despite j the predictions ol the pessimists, the | usual condition of the weather, and ! the shortage of labor, there has never I been so wonderful a crop of wheat, ! of corn, or of fashions. The matter j has been so carefully systematised j that the grade of efficiency reached j in these patriotic endeavors is al- i most unbelievable. Speaking from the fashion standpoint, one can safely say that there never has oeen a time when the styles were so universally becoming and satisfactory. The Paris openings have brought out charming things. One hears of the marvelous materials, and one sees the models brought over by . e intrepid buyers, and they are so Interesting and won derful that they seem too good to be true—almost! The Narrow Way of the Skirt Yes. indeed, skirts are narrow, and there is a very good reason for their being so The government has asked that wool be conserved, and the pa triotic designer and the fashionable woman alike cry, ‘ Well, we can help by wearing skirts that are not too wide; let them be narrow.” And narrow they are. too, and short, though perhaps not quite so short © McClU, as last year. It is not comfortable to walk in a tight skirt that is long, and so once more we find common sense aiding fashion. One must, how ever. not go to the other extreme and have the skirt too narrow for beauty. The Fall Coat One of the big 1’aris houses has decided that the fall would not be fall without ine coat suit, and so they are declaring with all their might and main that the smart thing is the suit, wrist length coat and short, tight skirt. . mother equally famous house forswears all allegiance to this old standby, and designs nothing but coats and dresses for street wear. So, there in a nutshell you have it, and the advantage is with you, for you are American and can decide for yourself this all-im portant question. There can be no doubt that toe top coat has a place of its own in the wardrobe of the smart woman. If the coat be stylish and becoming of line and color, the dress of last year can be worn with perfect confidence. (That is, if you don't take off your coat.) A splendid example of an all-em oracing. all-covering coat is illustrat ed here. It is made of fur cloth with the square collar that is considered so unusually smart. The pocket, sections, which give the wide hip effect, can be omitted, thus giving a coat built on straighten lines. As you see, it .s full length, and is comioname in every respect. i ne large buttons and the contrasting fur cloth for the collar and cuffs are the only trimming necessary. The Coming->-ut of Tucks There is nothing more attractive than the tiny tucks you find on everything. They taking the place to a great extent of me hemstitching so much used for the past three or four seasons. Georgette crepe dresses have clusters of these tiny hand-run tucks in the waists, sleeves and skirts. They group themselves on satin collars, near the edges, on crepe de Chine and satin frocks, sometimes completely routing all other trimming They must be hand run, and they must be very tiny: otherwise they may he used at dis cretion. whenever and wherever you please, and the more the merrier. -o Jersey and Guernsey cows give rich fat producing milk, and for that rea son their milk has been regarded as too rich for infants. It is still true that the milk of the Ayrshire and the Holstein is better suited to infants than the Jersey and Guernsey milk, but the cause is not the fat, as has been thought. The fact is that the casein of the Ayrshire and Holstein milk is decidedly more flocculated and not so readily curdled in the stomach, so that It is the most easily digested by children. -o With ten pairs of revolving disks a static electric machine has been built in Paris that has developed 320,000 volts SHE'S DOING A MAN’S WORK This young Scotchwoman is driving an ambulance between the front and the base of the hospitals in Sal onika.
