TURBAN IS POPULAR
SHOWS MOST PIQUANT DEVELOP MENTS OF SEASON. Most Popular Shape In Paris, Where They Are Epidemic, Is Large and Low—Ermine, Fur and Velvet Used. The turban Is epidemic In Paris. Turbans of fur, of marabou, of tulle, of beaver, of velvet, of any and every material suitable for the purpose are being worn by the smart Parisians and ate gradually gaining favor here; but it Is the turban of fur that shows the most plquaint developments. There is bound to be a certain basic simiiiarity in the models, for fur, es pecially of the long-haired variety, is not easily draped and manipulated, anil since the modish turban must be broad and posed low on the head there is little room for vagaries of i line, but even In line there are varia tions and in detail there is a world of difference. The most popular shape in Paris Is the one large and low, extending far out over the bouffant side hair and restli.j low on the forehead, yet with held from total eclipse of the face by a soft supporting invisible bandeau. The soft brim rolls up closely against the big crowd and some sort of rakish feather ornament sweeps back from the left front or stands up in brush fashion. There are some delightful turbans In ermine, which may be trimmed with a full white egret; and there are also many models In all white ermine or fox. Two long, handsome quills of ostrich, a graceful osprey, lyre bird plumage, or made quills of stunning color may trim such turbans or per haps there is no feather but Instead a cluster of fruit or flowers or some handsome barbaric ornament of gold tissue. Combinations of contrasting furs or of velvet and fur are sometimes seen In this model, the latter working out effectively en suite with a costume echoing the color of the velvet. Other low, round turbans have no semblance of brim, being bowl shaped or mushroom shaped, but. softened in line by the fluffiness of the fur. All j that has been said of the trimming j bestowed upon the roll-brim turbans j is applicable here also, and these shapes are at their best in such long haired fur as fox, lynx, marten, etc. A cluster of gardenias with their green foliage is often their only trim ming, and roses of, gold tissue are much used upon the darker furs, two or three qj them being tucked into the fur at the left side. One effective French turban In ermine was trimmed in a glowing bunch of velvet geran iums shading from brilliant red to pink, and on another white turban was posed one huge purple orchid.

BRAID ON LATEST COATS Collar and Cuffs Followed in Outline by Narrow Self-Colored Braiding. Many of the new tailored suits for autumn show, below the sailor collar which is so popular, a false collar ot stitching, or more usually of braiding The typical coat of this sort was seer recently, a loose hip-length jacket with V-shaped vest, sailor collar fin ished by a silk tie, and a row of nar row self-colored braiding, about five Inches below, following the collar In outline. The cuffs were finished In the same way. The great number of ruffles which have appeared as modifications of the tunic effect seems to have suggested this style, which gives a becoming effect of height to young girls and short women. Soutache or very nar row flat braid Is used. Sometimes it reappears on the tunic or simply in banding effect on the skirt below the knees. It is a good way to make last an tumn's suit seem modish again, and to conceal any necessary lengthening for the growing girl.

I THE ANOINTING OF JESUS • Sunday School Lesson for Oct. 30, 1910 Specially Arranged tor This Poper T-esson Text—Matthew 28:1-16. Memory verse IS. Golden Text—“She hath done what uhe could.“-Mark 14:8. Time—Saturday, April 1, A. D. 30, the dny before the Triumphal Procession. Place—House of Simon the lepar, at Betliany, on the Mount of Ollvea. The place of the supper was Beth any, in the house of Simon the leper. We have met this family twice before this In their home. One picture of them is presented to us in Luke 10: 38-42. Here we see Martha busily preparing the meal for Jesus' enter tainment; a busy ami anxious house keeper. This was in the autumn pre vious to the present occasion. The second picture is presented to us by John (LI: 20 44). Since the first picture their brother Lazarus had died, and been restored by Jesus; and although Martha is even more busy than before, yet she is restful and peaceful In her work. She Is not cumbered with .her business, nor an gry with Mary, nor casting reflections on Jesus. She has learned something in the day of sorrow and darkness. She has not lost any of her power to serve, l»ut the manner of her service has been transformed. Thus the two sisters each gained something of the virtues of the other. At the present feast Mary and Mar tha were each serving in the way natural to them. Lazarus sat at the table as a guest with Jesus in whose honor the feast was given. Simon was at the head of the table. As was cus tomary in the Orient the villagers were attracted to look upon the scene, and see the distinguished guests. It is a great flessing to have such a home as Is presented to us at Beth any, as a living picture to be held up before all the homos in the world, especially when we add to it the scene where .Jesus takes little children in his arms and blesses them. The star of Bethlehem for morals and religion, for the millennium, stands over the home where Jesus i^. There came unto him a woman. This woman was Mary, the sister of Mar tha and Lazarus. Having an alabaster box, rather, a cruse or flask. Of very precious ointment, a liquid perfume, more like an oil, as oil of roses, than the thicker compositions we commonly know as ointpient. It was so strong that it filled the whole house with Its odor. Very precious. Horace offers to give a cnsk of wine for a very small box of it. Compare the attar of roses, made at Ghazlpoor in Hindustan, and which requires 400,000 full-grown roses to produce one ounce, and which sells when pure. In the English ware houses, as high as $100 an ounce, or $1,200 for as much as Mary’s pound of Spikenard. Anointing the head of a rabbi at such feasts was not an unusual honor; but anointing the feet was unusual, and expressed the tenderest, must humble, most reverential, unutterable affection. Mary not only anointed Jesus, but she took "woman’s chief ornament” and devoted It to wiping the travel-stained feet of her teacher. She devoted the best she had to even the least honorable service for him. John says that "the house was filled with the odor," as Indeed the church and the world have been filled with the odor of this loving deed. When his disciples saw It, they had Indignation. John tells us that Judas Iscariot was the leader and the mouthpiece of the indignation against Mary. The plausible arguments of a positive man, wearing a mask of vir tue. and speaking in behalf of some of the very principles their Master had enforced, had brought some of the disciples Into more or less sympathy with his feeling of Indignation. It is easy to see how It might seem a useless waste, as some now Imagine that the money spent upon great churches, and on foreign missions, might better be given to the poor. She hath wrought a good work upon me. The Greek adjective implies something more than “good," a noble, an honorable work. "The spirit which offers precious things, simply because they are precious, . . . is a good and Just feeling, and as well-pleas Ing to God and honorable to men, as it is beyond all dispute necessary IU IUC piUUUUUUU Ul til 1 V £ I Cell WUI IV III the kind with which we are at present concerned.” "Costliness is an external sign of love and obedience." “It Is not the church we want, but the sacrifice; not the emotion of admiration, but the act of adoration; not the gift, but the giving." The act was even better than her thought. It was her last tribute of affection. "Jesus was at a crisis of his life when it was of the utmost value to him to know that he had won a place In a human heart." This story has been told In every known tongue, and is now being re lated In more than four hundred dif ferent languages to every great nation on the earth. We are told In the Pritannloa that the late Hr. Septimus Plesse "endeav ored to show that a certain scale or gamut existed among odors as among sounds, taking the sharp smells to correspond with high notes, and the heavy smells with low.” “He assert ed that to properly constitute a bou quet, the odors to be taken should correspond In the gamut like the notes of a musical chord. So the fragrance from Mary's flaek of nard fills the world with a chorus of odors, the many forms In which the fragrance of her deed has been ezpreaaed by count lees number* KEEPS THE SPOON IN PLACE 3imple Device Made of Wire Pre vents Fall ng Into or Out of Pot. When the number of kitchen uten sils and helps Invented Is compared with the number of Inventions In other lines, the percentage of the for mer is nothing short of remarkable. It will not be long before the cook will he eliminated entirely and the dinner will bo cooked by a series of wires, weights and pulleys run by the kitchen clock. One of the latest de vices to help the cook Is the spoon rest, designed by a New York woman. This consists of a single length of wire bent to form vertically arranged Always There When Needed. books, which fasten over the side of a pot. A long end with a loop to It ex tends out from the other side of the ,>ot. In cooking some dishes it Is nec essary to have a spoon always handy to stir the contents. Heretofore this spoon has shown an annoying habit of falling in or out of the pot at critical moments, but with the rest Just de scribed the handle can be placed in the loop and the whole kept in place by the lid of the pot, or even without It THE LATEST DIETARY SYSTEM Enables One to Enjoy All Culinary Luxuries Without Taxing Digestion. Spreading the menu over the whole day, commencing with fish for break fast, joint and vegetables for dinner and desserts for supper, is the latest dietary system. The discoverer or adapter of this new regime found that It had a most, beneficial effect on his own health, and many of his friends have since become firm disciples of what they rail the "one-meal, one-course” sys tem. "Modern meals are too much of a jumble." said a well-known specialist. "Fish and pork, fruit and cutlets, all taken at one sitting, must bo bad for one. "The time necessary for digestion varies with every different kind of good, and It is certain that the more we mix our foods the further we are straying away from the habits of natural man. "To take a hearty meal of one spe cial dish Is the best possible method of feeding, but we have so got into our four and five course habits, and have become so accustomed to what I may call the pleasant sequence ef the menu, that It requires a very strong effort to self-denial to confine ourselves to one dish. "But under the ‘one-meal, one course’ Idea the pleasant sequence Is not forfeited. It is spread over the whole day. instead of being rushed through In half an hour. One can enjoy all the culinary luxuries with out overtaxing the digestion.” To Horn Table Linen. A housewife who makes her own table linen and towels has hit on a trick to lessen the labor. She adjusts a small hemmer and a fine needle on her sewing machine, removes the thread from the upright and runs the napkin or whatever It Is, previously cut by the drawn threads, through the hemmer. This simple method of turning the hem and pricking the stitch holes makes the hand work very easy. Running the cloth through the machine, too, takes out the stiff ness. American 8alad Dressing. One level teaspoon of salt, one-half of a teaspoon of white pepper, one half of a teaspoon of dry mustard, one teaspoon of sugar, one teaspoon of onion juice, one tablespoon of lemon juice, two tablespoons of white wine vinegar and nine tablespoons of oil. Mix the dry ingredients and add the lemon Juice, then add the vinegar and onion juice; lastly add the oil In the same manner as for French dressing. An Ironing Hint. When Ironing a flounced petticoat, iron all the part under the flounce on the wrong side. The smooth polish would go for nothing hidden by the flounce, while on the wrong side of the hem It resists the soil somewhat, thus requiring less frequent launder ing. Fig Filling. For the Ailing put two cupfuls of chopped figs Into a double holler, add half a cupful of sugar, one-third cup ful of boiling water, pinch of salt, a tablesponful of butter and one table spoonful of lemon Juice. Cook until of consistency to spread. Text.—Ami he said, leave us not, X pray thee, for as much as thou knowest how we are to encamp tn the wilderness, and thou mayest bo with us Instead of eyes* -Num, 10:81 What more glorious use can b» made of knowledge. Influence, and per sonal strength than to turn them to the help of the needy? If your vision is penetrating and clear, what nobler service ran you render then to "be eyes” for those who may not *«*• afar? If your hand has strength and) cunning, to what better use may it be turned than lifting the burdens of the weak and teaching the unskill ed bow best to accomplish their task? If you have wealth you have pos session of a i»ower for good which is nearly omnipotent, if rightly applied. What more worthy aim can lead men and women of wealth than that through their help the poor may catch visions of the highest and holiest life? If we have tho gift of prophecy, we must use 11 for the Instruction of the ignorant, If wo retain it. To hesitate is ingloriously to fall; selfishly to keep for ourselves what God has in tended shall serve his children, is to lose life with all Its opportunities of good, llobah's knowledge and influ ence never were more precious to him than when, having refused the appeal to enrich himself, he accepted the op portunity to assist others. As the new dangers arose, and he helped Moses meet them and conquer them, his own mind and soul grew imperial. My the number, magnitude, .and stress of the! responsibilities of others, he was de-fl| veloped into his own worthiest life. When a great Italian commander was defeated he Issued his Immortal ap peai: soldiers, i am witnout money and without reward. 1 have nothing to offer you but cold and hunger, and rags and hardship. Let him who loves his country follow me." Hut with that summons to self-denial and patriotism he gathered to his side the choicest souls of his generation. The men who followed In response to that appeal became courageous heroes themselves. When our Isjrd turned and said to the multitude, "The Son of man hath not to where to lay his head,” and Invited them to follow him, he was calling to men and women who had counted the cost, and were ready to surrender themselves to the cause of purity, truth, and human helpfulness. The way of life Is narrow; the gate to it is narrow; but the narrowness of the way and the gate are Its glory. Nar rowness of the way demands energy, high purpose and noble perseverance. There is no other way. To Invite a great soul to a broad path Is to Invite him to smallness, to the cessation of growth and impotence. The cry has boon heard In every age. "Would God It were easier to be good!” "And would (iod It were easier to redeem the earth!”- Hut that is a mistaken cry. When the ten spies returned from Canaan murmuring because of the obstacles to their conquest, their murmuring was an evidence of weak ness of character; but the cry sf Ca leb and Joshua was, "Up, let as eon* quer these giants, and take their walled cities." That was the token of the greatness of the two. Jesus Christ did not come primarily to change the circumstances that should make life easy, but to give a new incentive and lolly Inspiration that would enable men to meet Vfe's circumstances as they are. He never promised his friends that the path of duty should he free from danger. In the spirit of the Spartan mother who charged her soldier son, "Come bums with your shield or on it," Christ says to his disciples, "Take the Held and save humanity, cost what it may." It Is always true that the choice of the broad path of personal case and com i t II i, iUBiuau ut tuc nan uw ^aiu ui duty, leads to the loss of self-respect, the world s esteem, and true success. Kir Henry Stanley describes bravery as a requisite for those who push into the African forest, and says: "The bigger the work the greater the Joy of doing It. The whole hearted striving and wrestling with difficulty to lay hold with a firm grip and level head, and the calm resolution of the mon ster. and tugging and tolling and westling at It today, tomorrow, and the next, until It is done—Is tin? sol dier's creed of forward, ever forward: It is a man’s faith that for this task he was born." When McKay wrote from Uganda in Africa to the home church, be said, “For our work at this station we want the best men iu England; not a man who can be easily spared, but the man who can not be spared." Christianity from the beginning has grown upon tasks that were so great as to require the consecration of all its power. "O, pray not for easy lives, pray to be stronger men; do not pray for power equal to your tasks; then the doing of your work shall be miracle, but you shall be a miracle; every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of the life which has come to you by the grace of God."
