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
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
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.

Collar and Cuffs Followed in Outline

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 same way.
The great number of ruffles which
have appeared as modifications of the

this style, which gives a becoming
effect of height to young girls and
short women. Soutache or very nar

reappears on the tunic or simply in

There is a clever girl working in
one of the government departments at
Washington who has satisfactorily
solved the question of summer hats
First she bought as nice a hat as sin
could afford; it is a soft straw braid.
In the natural color, made over a
frame that exactly suited her face an l
hair. Then for business wear it is
trimmed with a fold of black velvet
around the crown, with a broad wired
how at one side This trimming is
entirely made up and finished, so that
it can he easily removed and as easily
put hack on again.
The second set of trimmings is a
wreath of beautiful, roses and green
leaves. The flowers are a soft deli
(.ate pink, of an exquisite shade, to
wear with light dresses, and the third
set of trimming consists of a scarf
of brilliant poppies, which is used on
the hat when it is to be worn on trips
or excursions.. Hurely this Idea

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
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

Enables One to Enjoy All Culinary
Luxuries Without Taxing
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
"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
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

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

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."
