BRIMS OF ODD SHAPE PECULIARITY OF HATS FOR MID SUMMER WEAR. Unfamiliar Lines Mark the Latest Millinery Designs—Elaboration In Trimmings Is Also a Marked Feature of the Season. There are many large hats displayed for midsummer wear, and nearly all of them show some peculiarity of brim, either In upward lift or Indentations or the manner of trimming. There are sudden widenings or narrowings also, giving the hat unfamiliar lines about the brim edge, but these shapes are nevertheless well balanced and be coming about the face. As a rule srowns are medium In size and dome shaped, and there is departure from this so Infrequently that the brim may be said to be the essential feature on which to center attention. Resides the oddity of brims, it is to be noted that the newest hnts show much elaboration in trimmings. Bands of net or chiffon, frills of lace, maline folds, many flowers, velvet ribbons and plumage, are nil cleverly mannged, so that the composition of a single hat includes three or perhaps Icur ma terials. The art of the trimmer is more evident in using this variety than in simply placing a tuft of plumes or a wreath of flowers on a graceful shape. Both simply trirmmed and elaborately made hats are at tractive, but the latter are more in teresting. As an instance of this successful use of several materials on one hat, one of the rolling brimmed French sailors In white chip may be cited. This shape, with small dome-shaped crown, was bound about the edge with black Brussels net which extends in a fold an inch and a.half beyond the brim edge. Just inside this fold are two rows of val. lace about two Inches wide. This is laid in narrow side p’nits. and one row overlaps the other slightly. This Inside row is finished with a close set wreath of tiny June roses. A standing spray of roses, or a bow of velvet ribbon could be used with this brim treatment for the ad dition of height with good effect, al though the model had no trimming on the crown. SMALL COATS TO BE WORN Fanciful Little Garments in Many Materials Are a Feature of the Season. The most difficult part of the fitting of an overdrapery is in keeping the 6ides straight and slim in outline. The elit skirt is now accomplished with an over-effect. There is every indication that the short, fanciful little coat in silk of one kind or another is to be an important item of the siymner outfit this year. The eton, the bolero and a host of models more or less related to these two old friends are alrendy in evi dence. the less closely related coatees showing a leaning toward abbreviated mantle or dolman lines, In keeping with the übiquitous taffetas and their bouillonees, ruching and quillings. On the whole, these little wraps are picturesque and piquant. Perhaps some of them are a trifle too odd. but that depends a great deal upon the woman who wears them. DIVIDING LINE OF FASHION Marked Difference In Opposing Ideas as to What Shall Be Given Permanent Favor. This, briefly, is the burning ques tion of the hour: Shall we take seri ously to the eighteenth century re vival with !ts paniers. fichus and pointed bodices, or shall we continue to admire the flowing draperies dis playing an obviously corsetless con ditlon and a rather dowdy and exceed ingly expensive simplicity? Simplicity Is hardly the word for the statuesque complexities of drapery which some of the best people insist on hanging on their bones to grace every occasion Indoors or out of them. They talk of nothing but pro portion. line and harmony, and. to practice what they preach, turn them selves into living pictures for the ben efit of the spectator. All this is thanks to the designs of nrtists who have chosen silks and satins instead of paint and canvas as a method of expression. Their .clientele shudders at the rigid un- MEMORANDUM PAD IS GOOD Will Be Found of Much Value In the Kitchen and Here Is Easy Way to Make It. Perhaps in no room in the house is a memorandum pad more necessary than in the kitchen, and the one shown In the accompanying sketch has been' specially designed for utilizing old halt sheets of note paper. The materials with which'lt can bo made are almost a matter of choice. and art serge or art linen would do equally well. In size. It is nine inches in height and six Inches In width, and a piece of stiff cardboard of these di mensions should be procured and Emoothly covered with the material that has been selected. At the jtop and bottom bands of broad elastic are sewn across, and un der these bands a large number of sheets of notopaper may be slipped and held in their plnces, and when the uppermost one has been used, it can be pulled from under the elastic in a moment without disturbing the re maining sheets underneath. The pad is edged all round with cord carried into three little loops at each corner. GIRDLE SHOULD BE NARROW Important Fact That the Woman of Middle Age Will Do Well to Remember. If the middle aged woman Insists up on wearing a girdle, regardless of the length or width of her waist, she should have that girdle very narrow with long ends extending to the hem of her skirt. A certain well dressed middle nged woman who looks much slighter and taller than her true measurements affects girdles of satin or velvet ribbon of black or a deep shade of a color. The belt portion of the accessory never Is more than an Inch broad and goes about her waist, closing under two long ends, which are drawn over the belt, but not knotted or bowed. And these ends are weighted Invisibly, for that middle aged woman knows that to figures proportioned similarly to hers fluttering ribbons and frivolous little trillings belong not. Fashion’s Fancies The mesh bag is still very popular. Cotton corduroys are among the fa vorite washing fnbrics. The dead white hat Is unlikely to be seen again this season. Ruchlngs of old gold taffeta trim many of the new gowns. The cuirass effect on evening gowns Is seen in many new designs. Little black taffeta coats appear with gowns of contrasting color. Taffeta wraps, trimmed with ruching of the same material, are very popular. Little frocks of spring muslins will be smart and pretty for summer wear. With the lingerie dresses the hand bags of lace or linen will be largely used. Flower-like ornaments with bands of velvet are still popular for neck wear. Avoid wearing a light hat with a dark gown, if you would really be well dressed. Accordion plaiting is among the pos sibilities for the summer’s coming fashions.

DESSERTS. Most of the sterner sex feel as If they had been deprived of their just dues and had not a perfect meal un less they have had some kind ot a pud ding or pie for dessert. "These trifles light as air" do not appeal to their taste. So even in warm weather, when nn occasional cool day arrives, Is a good time to prepare a heavier dessert. Mere is one to keep on hand and steam up for occasions: French Fruit Pudding.—To a cup of finely chopped suet add a cup of mo lasses and a cup of sour milk, then two nnd three-fourths cups of flour sifted with a teaspoon and a half of soda, half a teaspoon of salt and cloves, a teaspoon of cinnamon. When well mixed add a cup and a fourth of raisins and three-fourths of a cup of currants. Steam four hours in a but tered mold. Sterling Sauce.—Serve this sauce with the above pudding: Cream a half cup of butter, ndd a cup of brown sugar, a teaspoonful of vanilla and four tnblespoonfuls of milk. Add the milk drop by drop to keep the mix ture smooth. Fig Pudding.—Chop a third of a pound of beef suet, add a half pound of chopped figs; cream the suet before adding the figs. Soak two and a half cups of. bread crumbs In a half cup of milk, add two beaten eggs, a cup of sugar and three-fourths of a teaspoon of salt. Mix ail together and steam three hours. Serve with egg sauce. Two beaten eggs, a cup of powdered sugar and three tahlespoonfuls of any fruit juice. Maple Sauce for Ice Cream. —Put a pound of maple sugar, broken in bits, a' cup of thin cream and two table spoonfuls of butter In a granite sauce pan: boll without stirring until it forms a soft, waxy ball, when dropped in cold water. Keep the pan In anoth er of hot water until ready to serve. It will candy on the ice cream as it does on snow in sugaring time. If cnrefully dropped in small amounts it may be eaten with comfort.

DIET FOR RHEUMATISM. Rheumatism is one of the diseases which is especially influenced by diet. In acute cases a fluid diet of gruels, vegetable soups and all forms of milk are used. Alcohol Is especially tabooed, drinks of lemonade without sugar, buttermilk and fruit drinks are permissable. Sac charin supplies the place of sugar when needed without any of its harm ful effects. C.out is apt to follow an attack of rheumatism because of : .0 large ac cumulation of uric add i.i the system. Whenever it Is found In the system, even in small quantities, special at tention should be paid to the dieL One wise old proverb to follow Is to “eat less, work more, worry less, walk more." Only just food enough to sustain the body should lie eaten. Lating too much is very harmful. Three slender meals a day. with nothing between meals, are sufficient. Alcoholic drinks as well as sweets and sugar should be avoided even In mild cases of the trouble. Oysters may be served In this diet provided the hard muscle Is removed. Milk seasoned with the oyster liquor, when one tires of milk, makes a desir able change. Junket, or whey. Is borne by the most delicate stomachs. Sweeten a quart cf milk with saccharin, add a tablespoonful of rennet or a tablet dis solved in a tablespoonful of water, a tablespoonful of lemon juice; let stand until thick, chill and serve. Do not shake, as the whey will separate from the curd. The whey inay ba poured off and used as a drink and the curd giver as a food. If milk causes gastric disturbances, t may be peptonized. In a quart can put five grains of the extract of pan creatin, a pinch of baking soda and a gill of water; shake and add a pint of milk. Put into a warm place for an hour.

It may be well to remember that fruit picked after a heavy rain, espe cially berries like raspberries, will have lost much of their flavor. Currants picked after a heavy rain A Grasp of the Hand. There are times when a grasp of the hand is almost a sacred thing. In sorrow it may Impart comfort or con vey sympathy more effectively than words.

When canning pineapple try this method: Slice the fruit or shred it in the form desired, and cook it until tender in clear water. Then use the water with sugar to make a heavy sirup to pour over the pineapple in the cans. Seal and put away for win ter. A method of canning which Is so good that every busy housewife should at least try it, is this: Put the fruit to be canned in the jars, have a thick, rich sirup of sugar and water with per haps some of the inferior or crushed berries, though none of them should be spoiled. Pour this boiling hot sirup over the fruit in the jars and submerge them in a boiler of lulling water, so that four inches of water covers the tops of the cans. They should be tightly sealed. Cover the boiler with an old carpet or rug and let stand for twenty-four hours, then remove, see that the tops are screwed tight, and put away for the winter. Currants for jelly making should not be too ripe as the pectin is changed to sugar and the jelly will not jell. The last few days of June the first days of July .are consid ered the best time for currant jelly making. Currants and raspberries In equal parts make a delicious jelly, the cur rants supplying the pectin and the raspberry the flavor. Jelly should be drained slowly from a Jelly bag hung and allowed to drip. If the juice is squeezed out the jelly will be ttrick and leathery in appear ance'.

WHAT TO DO WITH LEFT-OVERS. "Every day Is a fresh beginning” with left-overs. They are like house work, "powerful constanL” It is in deed surprising what good and appe tizing dishes may be prepared from the combination of two or more foods. To the frugal and saving cook, "all is fish that comes to her net.” A cupful of cooked spinach left from dinner may be mixed with mashed potato, egg and seasonings and sauted in bacon fat, making a nice little luncheon or breakfast dish. An escalloped dish of rice nnd as paragus left-overs is most appetizing. Put a layer of cooked rice In a ba king dish, pour over afeparagus which has been served with white sauce, an other layer of rice and asparagus and finish with crumbs well buttered. Bake until thoroughly hot. If there is not enough of the asparagus, add a hard cooked egg or two to the com bination. For a good dessert In an emergency, try using this: Butter a few slices of bread. lay them In a baking dish and pour over cooked pieplant, or fresh is better: sprinkle with sugar, put on an other layer of buttered bread, cover with the pieplant and bake. This des sert may be covered with a meringue or not as one likes. Mutton Ragout.—Beat currant Jelly until smooth, measure three table spoonfuls in a hot saucepan, add a tea spoonful of lemon juice and two ta blespoonfuls of butter. When the but ter Is melted, reheat thin slices’of cold boiled mutton In sauce. Season witht salt and paprika. Minced Lamb.—Chop remnants of cold roast lamb; there should be a cupful. Put two tablespoonfuls of but ter in a hot saucepan, and when melt ed add the lamb, some salt, pepper and celery salt, and dredge thorough ly with flour; then add enough stock or water to moisten. Serve hot on small slices of buttered toast. Dried bepf chipped in small pieces and added to a rich white sauce makes a fine accompaniment to baked pota toes for a luncheon or supper dißh.

DAMAGE $10,000,000 BUSINESS SECTION DEVASTATED; FASHIONABLE RESIDENCE DISTRICT WIPED OUT. tVcHU-rn Newspaper Union Newsservice. Winnipeg, Manitoba.—Four hundred persons were killed and $10,000,000 damage done by a tornado which struck Regina, Saskatchewan. Busi ness blocks, apartment houses and res idences were wrecked. The Telephone Exchange building, the Standard block, the First Baptist church and the Baird Bottell building are among the structures destroyed. All telephone and telegraph wires, with the exception of one telegraph wire, are down. A special train left Winnipeg with doctors, nurses and telegraph and tele phone repairmen. The tornado came from the south and first struck the new Parliament building, just completed at a cost of $2,000,000. The building is of steel an l concrete and, while it still stands, it is badly shaken. It then swept north ward, mowing a swath six blocks wide, through the most fashionable resi dence district, transforming it into a mass of wreckage. Along Victoria street from Sixteenth to Eleventh, 300 houses were de stroyed and many persons killed. Automobiles filled with people were hurled high in the air and deposited blocks away. At'eleventh street the business dis trict, composed of wholesale ware houses, banking institutions and retail stores, were sent into a heap of ruins, while the air was filled with flying wreckage. Past Eleventh, Albert, Smith, Cromwell, Searth, Hamilton, and Rose streets, the storm reached the retail section, which received the severest force. Then the Canadian Pacific tracks were reached: Six big grain elevators toppled over, the timbers being piled on the tracks. Crossing the railway tracks several of the largest wholesale houses in the city were unroofed, their heavily-laden floors falling to the bottom as then supports were loosened. Government has $32,000,000 Surplus. Washington.—The federal govern ment closed the fiscal year June 29 with a surplus of $32,000,000, accord ing to estimates based on incomplete returns from the sources of revenue the country over. This amount far ex ceeded the most sanginue expecta tions of Secretary McVeagh, who months ago estimated that the surplus would be $10,250,000. The surplus at the close of the fis cal year 1911 was $45,082,000. The failure of Congress to pass the general deficiency and other appropria tion bills which would have called for large disbursements during the closing days of the fiscal year helped the gov ernment to pile up its surplus. Another big element in the figures was the corporation tax which, it is calculated, brought in $2,0j00,000 against $33,000,000 last year. Custom receipts yielded about $310,- yOO.OOO this fiscal year, against $314,- 000,000 last, while internal revenue (axes amounted to $292,000,000 against $289,000,000. The taxation on beer indicated that the American people consumed G3.000,- 000 barrels during the year. The gov ernment realized $149,000,000 in dis tilled spirits, $G3,000,000 on beer and $70,000,000 on tobacco. Coal Mine Deaths Decrease. Washington.

CLARK463;WILSON4O7 IN DESPERATION OVER SITUA TION, SPEAKER COMES TO CONVENTION. Western Newspaper I'nlon News Seri In- Baltimore. —Although many confer ences were held Sunuay, when the Democratic national convention met Monday morning, the leaders were as far from a settlement as they were when they adjourned Saturday night, after taking twenty-six ballots. They reviewed the entire situation and tried to devise some means by which tlie warring factions could be brought together, but. to no avail. Forty-four Illinois delegates are talking of deserting Speaker Clark and voting for Governor Wilson. Other detections are threatened. Wil son supporters claim they are sure to win. They need 13G for a major ity. AJr. Clark needs 2G3 to win him the nomination. Amidst scenes of wildest excite ment the Democratic national conven tion. tightly deadlocked, adjourned just before midnight Saturday to meet Monday. The drift was toward Governor Wilson during the day's balloting, but he has nothing like a majority of the delegates as yet. While his friends express the belief that he will be nominated, the indications are that he finally will be eliminated and a dark horse chosen. in desperation over tlie weakening of his lines. Speaker Champ Clark, who lias led in the voting up to the present time, arrived in the city from Washington Saturday night. He rushed over from Washington to speak to tlie convention before it adjourned, but the tumultupus session came to an end before lie arrived. He is angeredxover his repudiation on the floor of the convention by Will iam J. Bryan. It is his present purpose to go on the floor of t lie convention and reply to the bitter attack made upon him by the man from Nebraska, who had previously Indorsed his candidacy. In denouncing Speaker Clark as one of the candidates of the "interests," Mr. Bryan declared that the delegates from Nebraska would vote for Ne braska's second choice, Governor Woodrow Wilson, so long as Speaker Clark had the support of the New York state delegation. The man from Nebraska also caused a sensation by declaring further war on the Morgan- Ryan-Bolmont coterie of financiers and aiming fierce shafts of invective and criticism at the New York dele gates who, he said, do not represent tiie “honest democracy of the state.” The situation is one of the greatest confusion and uncertainty. Confer ences are going on everywhere. Representatives of the various can didates t are speeding here from va rious parts of the country preparing for war to the finish and a titanic battle in the convention. Booms are weakening. New bogS# are being talked up. dark horaPs are being groomed for entry if the deadlock continues. Twenty-six ballots were taken . Sat urday. At the conclusion of the vot ing Speaker Clark had 463% votes. Governor Wilson 407% and Represen tative Oscar F. Underwood 112%. Heroic efforts were made by the Clark men to weaken the Underwood lines. They were unsuccessful. All kinds of offers and promises were made for the support of the Alabama mail's delegates, but they were spurned. Mr. Underwood is de termined to stay in the race to the end. He has reasons for believing that tlie honor may finally come his way. • How the States Voted. Recording the roll call in the con \ention is not a difficult task. Thirty of the states and territories have vot ed ballot after ballot without a 'change. Beginning with Alabama, with its twenty-four votes for Under wood, then comes Arkansas. Cali fornia and Colorado, all Clark voles without a break. Arizona was in that list until one Clark man went to Wil son. Delaware has always cast Its six votes for Wilson, and then there are forty more Underwood votes from Florida and Georgia. Illinois has been for Clark and Indian., has con tinued to vote for Marshall. lowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, New Mex ico, Rhode Island, Washington, West Virginia, District of Columbia and half the vote from Oklahoma have been for the speaker ballot after bal lot, with no change. There are some states which always make the tally clerk and reporters pay attention. Cot*-lectlcut has been changing its vote from time t 6 time, and so has Michigan. In the early balloting the Ohio vote fluctuated and there have been many changes. The Tennessee vote hardly ever has been the same on successive ballots, but the changes have been slight. It Is likely that without the unit rule a nomination would have been made long ago. Many of the individual dele gates* would like to break, but are by a majority of the delegates from their state. 5 It is certain that New York would not cast its block of ninety if the rule were abrogated. What Will Bryan Do? The uncertain situation over the naming of the presidential candidate has given rise to much speculation among the leaders as to what move will be made, if any, by W. J. Bryan to break the deadlock, hut in an inter view Mr. Bryan disclosed nothing. Underwood for Second Place. Representative Oscar W. Under wood's strength in the presidential race is indicated by the diligent ef forts of Wilson managers to boom hint for Vice President. "I think the tick et will be Wilson and Underwood, a winning combination,'’ said Senator O'Gorman of New York. Senator Bank head of Alabama laughed when he heard it. "You can authoritatively state,' he said, "that Mr. Underwood Vculd not consider the vice presidency on any ticket." NOT IN POSITION TO TALK Colored Man'l Theory Might Havo Been All Right, but There Were Exception!. Dougins Fairbanks, out in Chicago, went into a barber shop the other day to get a shine.

"Ah tell yo," said the negro who was working on the "Ofllcor 666 ' ac tor's shoes, "women is a pecullah thing. Yo’ gotta know Just how to handle huh or yo’ goin’ to git tlio worst uf it.

The prosecuting attor ney was trying to show that Baker wasn’t married. He asked Baker the following questions: "Did you ever send your wife any dresses?" "Yes, I sent her four dresses.’” "What kind of dresses did you send her?" "I sent her one good dress and three common dresses." "How much did you pay for the good dress, Mr. Baker?" "Oh, I guess about $4.50." The lawyer put Mr. Baker down then and there as an unmarried man and a poor guesser.—Exchange. * Man’s Usefulness. Mrs. Edward R.
