TAMMANY LAID LOW.
Democratic Victories in Tuesday's Elections. Democratic Governors were elected Tuesday in each State where this office was filled Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia. With the exception of New York State, where the Tammany Democracy was severely rebuked, more Democratic than Republican victories were recorded. ' Maryland elected a Democratic United States Senator, Blair Lee. Of the four Congressmen elected throughout the country three were Democrats. The exception was C D. Paige, in the Third District, Massachusetts. " In Massachusetts there was a Dem ocratic landslide. Lieutenant-Governor David I. Walsh was chosen by a plu rality of 53,091, the largest ever given a Democratic candidate for the oilice. Mr. Walsh carried with him into oilice every Democratic candidate on the State ticket, with the possible exception ' o the Attorney-General. The Tammany Democracy, in New York State was condemned in a man ner which left liitle solace to the lead ers. John Purroy Mitchell, fusionist was elected Mayor of New York, lead ing Edward E. McCall, the Tammany candidate, 121,209 votes. William Sul zer, deposed Governor of the State, was elected to the Assembly from New York City. The New York State Assembly will be safely Republi;a. In New Jersey Jahids F. Fielder, Dem ocrat, was elected Governoi! with a plu- , rality of about, 22,000 over the Repub lican candidate, and the Democrats will control both houses of the Legislature Kissing and Colds." Boston is much disturbed. The las sies of the Hub City are indignant and the lads are honestly mad. The Depart ment of Public Health and Charities has issued a bulletin in which the pub lie is warned that common colds are often contracted by kissing. JLhe Hoard must; have a very poor opinion in regard to the warmth of the of the Boston kiss. It is a libel against Boston society. That a kiss could pos sibly be so frigid as to produce a cold seems almost impossible.; It is entirely unlike the southern brand, which sends a tingle through the bloed, brings a flush of warmth to the cheeks of the contracting parties and inspires a feel ing of youth even in people old and se date and inclined to Le chilly. The Boston kiss should be subjected to critical analysis,, if thorn bo & rudi ment of truth in the accusation of the Board of Public Health and Charities. This much must be admitted, a cold that results from a kiss, a cold that fol lows a kiss, a cold .that is created by a kiss, is no common cold. It is an ex ceptional cold. It is' a cold that cannot be properly diagnosed by any physician. Besides, the man who would not wil- lingly pay for a kiss with a cold is a man unfit to exist. He has only water in his veins, not warm, manly blood. All sex instincts must be truly atrophied. What is a simple cold? It is not seri ous or severe. Kingdoms have been endangered for a kiss. Lives have been risked for the exchange of lips. Why should the Board of Health and Chari ties worry about a mere cold? ' The average man, if he is a man, will brave tho direst perils for the sake of a kiss. They have done so since the very beginning of the world and they will continue to do so until the death knell of eternity is sounded. , "Leave but a kiss within the cup, I'll not ask for wiue' Vaod men still in dorse the sentiment expressed by rare old Ben Johnson's exquisite lines. If the gallants of Boston are to be discouraged by the bulletin we can only cry "Shame on you." It sometimes takes courage to be a coward, but the coward who is afraid to risk the con traction of a cold as a penalty for a kiss is a coward beneath contempt. Of course, the long kiss, the kiss of love, described by Byron, may be debated upon. We would far rather accept the views of George Yilliers, who appropri ately said "kisses are like grains of gold or silver found upon the ground, of no value themselves but precious as showing that a mine is near." At any rate, the poets dealing with kisses say nothing of colds. Commercial Appeal. The Democrat's Demise. In the demise of the Nashville Dem ocrat the expected has happened. The old, old story of an attempt to give Nashville two morning paper? has had tho usual ending. Nashville is among the best cities in the South. It is growing by leaps and bounds. Nashville advertisers are the peer of advertisers anywhere else in tho South. Nashville offers opoortuuity for many industries. But Nashville has never supported two morning papers or evening papers, either, as for that and never will until tho population has been increased about. 50,000 above its present record. For at least six months it has been very plain that the Democrat was los iug ground. Its advertising was falling off. Its circulatioa was falling off. And when its candidate for JMayor was de feated so overwhelmingly and its legjs tative policies so positively repudiated, it became equally as plain that its po litical influence had fallen off. y ' But leaving politics out of the con sideration altogether, the Tennessean and American under the ownership of Senator Luke Lea has developed into a newspaper that is the equal of metro politan dailies of much larger cities To compete with it and secure tho pat ronage of that large class of readers who do not take a paper because ot its politics, but because of its qualities as a. real un-to-date newspaper, it was necessary for The Democrat to publish a mrxr eouallv as good. This it failed to do after the first year or its existence, The Sun congratulates the len,nos sean ana American upon us success and wishes for it not many years, but mariv decades of continued success financially and an ever-increasing influ ence for the cause of good government and clean politics.

While soft crowns are most worn there are many shapes stiflly modelled, some of the prettiest with little or no brim except at the left side where the brim turns up high above the top of the crown, with a gauze but terfly or' antennae like feathers poised at the top of this flare in a way that aJds much to the height of the wearer.

KY. are built up with mgn trimmings ai the back, where they turn up to dis play the coiffure. These and many Other models are. very often fastened with the "Tommy Atkins" chin strap, which is gaining ground, and is a boon to the woman whose chin needs help, though, truth to tell, it's the very young contingent who use this device most. The strap gives a very saucy air when attached to one of the high drum shapes that are almost or quite brim less, and a rather prim demure look where the hat has a drooping brim. ' For auto wear and general knock about use, shapes of plush made up without stiffening, and which pull down over the ears, are prime favorites. A very smart hat of this genre seen re cently was of purple taffeta silk, cut in strips and braided like straw, then sewn in a shape half bood, half hat, but alto gether smart looking and comfortable. NEW GIRDLES. The Turkish sash that, going twice about the waist, droops well over the hips and ties at the left side, is still with iis and, strange to say, is success fully worn even where the girth of the figure would seem to preclude, its use. Newer, however, are girdles of leather or satin that start a bit below the natural waistline and go up to a height of eight or twelve inches. These are especially attractive in soft suede leather, dyed in all- modish colors, and often form the sole bantrasting color note in the dress, though this is apt to be repeated in hos iery, parasol and in the hat or its trim mings; ,, -.. . ; . CORSET LINES. Corset lines change somewhat each season to keep pace with the new mod els launched by fashion leaders. No woman who aspires to appear well turned but can afford to neglect this fundamental structure which molds and holds tho figure correctly if the right style is selected. Fortunately for the woman whose dress allowance is limited the American corsets just launched for the- Fatf -of 1913 can be had at reasona ble figures, and one is as sure that the outlines are up-to-date in Warner's rust proof as in the most expensive French stays, more sure in fact, because these are modeled to suit not the French but the American style of figure. ; NEW HT.OCFKS. ' There is no change in the liking for transparent fabrics for waists and bodi ces; Full flowing lines are employed, even for tailor-made wear, but materials are so soft and clinging that the lines of a neat figure are quite as-well defined in these as in tho old-time tight-fitting bodice. Vest blouses, which simulate a man's vest, only that tbe front and back are built of the same" material, come nearest to the old-time fitted bod ice which is threatened by designers but which still lingers in the background. These "Vestce waists" have sleeves of thin material silk, lace, chiffon or marquisette which usually contrast in color as well as in fabric. Very smart models of this type show the vest of brocade and the sleeves repeating one of the colors of the figured stuff. These are especially good with tho cut away coats, which require a vest to complete their effect. : Lucy Carter. CATARRHAL TROUBLE ENDED-USE HYOME1. You Breathe It No Stomach Dos ing Clears the Head.
