Spread — Corn Held Ita Own.
CHICAGO, Nov. 9. -There are at least a
dozen varieties of silk alone manufactur
ed purely for the fancy walat trade—taf
fetas in pastel tones, taffetas dotted with
chenille, tucked taffeta, stitched Bilk and
silk that Is herring-boned, embroidered In
bouquet 9, treated with hemstitched lines,
and finally we have the beautiful velours
panne and taffeta soutache. This last on
the list comes In two of the newest col
ors—sovereign yellow and garter blue—
and over these two softly bright surfaces
runs an Intricate pattern worked out In a
silk soutache braid that is not heavier
than white parcel cord, and which Is
stitched firmly to the silk.
THE SEASONS SMART BODICES.
At the very Instant there is no newer
thing for a smart theater body than a taf
feta stiffened with a web of machine |
stitching, and to trim with bands of black j
veivet bebe ribbon Is a favorite dress- I
making scheme. The ribbon Is often, and
most effectively, run through bordering
bands of ecru Russian lace or is thread
ed through the edges of lace points and
Another oft-imitated model is that «* a
dark-blue or green taffeta bolero body,
shaped away widely on the- bust to show
open vest, collar and cuffs of white vel- i
vet, dotted with blue or green, while from '
the chin to the waist line falls a torrent ;
of delicate time-tinted lace. A narrow j
strip of heavily stitched tafTeta is by all
odds the choicest medium for a girdle at !
this moment, when satin and velvet j
crushed belts are out of feminine counten- j
The best foot foremost as this g-oes to [
press shows a buttoned or laced round
tced shoe of patent leather, treated with
stitched-down straps ,of black satin-faced
i vesting. It is the Parisian novelty, be
coming a familiar sight. A very taking
little laced shoe put forth for walking is
made of fine dull-finished canvas, and
where the edge of the toe-cap and don
gola meet a strap of patent leather is
stitched on, thus producing a very quiet
but most ornamental shoe. Big flat ro
! settes of ribbons in two colors are gain-
Ing fashionable ground on sltpper toes, i
but. a wave of good sense in shoe shap- j
ing having only momentarily possessed j
I the feminine mind, we are now suffer- i
I ing sharp reaction even to the high- i
I heeled, arrow-toed French form.
A WORD ABOUT COATS.
Just about one woman in 500 appears to
have screwed her courage up to the point
of purchasing and wearing a long-tailed
box coat, and the frank admission must
be made that the loveliest figure is ut
terly" tost and forgotten when swathed !
In one of these bed-gown shaped affairs.
Coats that clip the figure close and let
fall the shortest of tails certainly have
no reason to fear any rivalry on the
part of the baggy sisterhood, and yet a
certain percentage of box coats are worn.
i They appear to the utmost advantage and
j with the smartest effect when cut from
j mackintosh cloth and worn on rainy
; days, and the majority of them depend
j on stitched strappings for ornamenta
Velvet coats have been sadly overdone
these last few seasons, and are in con
sequence rather under the ban of dlsap
! proval, though a few good and pretty
I ones have made their appearance, with
■ vests ol broadcloth, Persian lamb, or
satin handsomely embroidered. Most in
teresting and admired, however, of all
the walking wraps Is a close-buttoned
short coatee of that bright, black satin
faced French merum the tailors love,
: and this, built double-breasted with a
spade front, Is for the autumn of '99 the
; acme of good taste.
THE EXPIRING SPANGLE.
The final expiring effort of the spangle
lo maintain its proud position of p pular.
ity must be recorded, for some women
there are who buy robes of net stiffened
j with big black sequins that show every
I one in its center a small pearl or rhine-
I stone bead; but these are not thrill y In
' vestments, such, for example, as are the
t chenille dotted laces, nets and silks.
i Truthfully speaking, that chenille dot Is
i everywhere, and most frequently it is
back of medium sizv, strewn on the de.-p,
I kilted flounces of bright green and blue
I taffeta silk under-pettlcoats, on ih- sVk
! en tresses of long, delicate-toned fringes
j of varying sizes of dot outline, like ihr
! stars on an astronomical imp, the de I 4 'n
; of the cream and cheese yellow laces.
i In imitation of the cheniile dot tufts of
I fur, large as a quail's egg. appear in raih
j er peculiar contrast upon ch'ffon and the
heavier lace robes, but the triumph of ex.
I travagance and sartorial whim surely has
' been reached with the lace dresses on
which appliques of broched Bilk are made.
DAINTY VELVET MUFFS.
Happily this year, when furs have
■ reached an extreme of costliness that
| renders them unapproachable by any save
the truly wealthy women, velvet muffs
are considered of modish superiority to
those of fur. Through their quaint orig
inality of shape and decoration they have
i made a strong appeal to patronage, and
j with their handsome calling . or theater
! gowns the women are carrying tiny, odd
■ ly shaped Frenchy mauchons of gay
j coral-colored velvet incrusted with lace,
lined with rucked taffeta and showing a
I cluster of pale-gray ostrich tips in a vel-
vet knot on the upper Bide. These, of
course, are purely ornamental in object,
as a corsago bouquet, but thoroughly
serviceable as well as decorative is the
parma violet, tortise-shell brown and
bronze-green velvet muff in large, flat,
granny pillow or corkscrew shape. These
have for their substance a roll of pure
wool batting 1 laid between an outside cov
ering of velvet and an Inside lining of
come handsome brflfcade. chenille frltge,
a broad liberty eatin scirf tied round the
middle throutfba'ibucklu of brilliants,
else a wreath fag" orlostrich plumes, lends
the proper air "of g/iyety and elegance to
these economic corapromisrs that, never
theless, are entirely adequate to wintry
CLOTHES f FOR SMALT, BOYS.
There Is less ex.pen.slve ornamentation
and a greater degree of genuine good
taste displayed by mothers in ihe choice
i of their children's street clothes than we
have seen in a long time. This has been
especially noticed with regard to -small
boys, who are wearing blouse suits of
dark serge, In blue *nd brown, with light
er blue and browntvesrs and sailor col
lars stitched for decoration. Knee long
coats of sand-brown covertlng with leg
gings to match and a German fatigue cap
of the same goods are significant of the
smart little boy on the street. The coat
of covert is also plainly stitched with
brown silk and the wide collar of the
blouse body he wears is invariably thrown
outside over the shoulders of his warm
top-coat —Mary Dean.
FORTXIUE IN EMBROIDERY.
Eastern Woman Ha* Amassed
Wealth b>- Hand Serrtnv.
Machinery has not altogether replaced
the dexterity of the hand, as many a
woman knows whose fingers ply the nee
dle successfully. Since the advent of
sewing machines the story of a woman
earning a fortune by» the expert use
of her needle reads like a fairy tale. Yet
Mrs. Clara L. Kellogg, of " Westfleld,
Mass., has during the last eighteen years
accumulated property valued at more
than $75,000, every cent of it made by em
broidery. When thrown on her own
resources at the age of fifteen sh? had
received no special education >and no one
; considered her a girl of any particular !
I talent. Speaking of her work, she |
! says: j
"1 had taken lessons in embroidery of a
visiting teacher, who had taught a ff-w I
months in my native town. I liked the j
work and when I found that I must earn I
my own and my mother's living I decided
to give embroidery lessons. My nrst
class was in my native town; then I j
formed classes in several neighboring
towns and, realizing that I must ker-p
up with the fashions in embroidery if I j
wished to hold my pupils, I went to Bos
ton and learned Kensing.'on and several :
stitches popular at that time. The next
year I made my first trip ab oad and j
visited all the museums, cathedrals and j
sisterhoods where I could hear of rare :
bits of tapestry and embroideries. 1
j also managed to take a few lesions, j
When I returned home I had more ap
plications from pupils than I cculd pos
sibly teach. Then, too, orders began
to come in for very handsome places
of work from persons who were willing i
i to pay handsome prices. I soon aban- i
[ doned my classes and devoted my time to i
| filling orders. It was impossible for me \
I to do all the work, so I devoted my i
I time to stamping and selecting colors :
| and hired the work done by girls I was
; certain could be trusted. The result was
| bo satisfactory after the first few months j
that I determined to pu?h it. I solicited
orders from large fuvnishing houses and ■
! succeeded in getting a number of large i
j orders. When handsome homes are com- |
i pleted they are often turned over to those i
j firms to furnish. The hangings, cushions j
! and linens must be embroidered to cor- j
i respond with the architecture and fur
: nlshings of each room. I inspect the
I rooms, make the designs, stamp and
; select, and send out to my various girl?.
I My smaller orders come direct from cus- ,
■ tomers and I make it a point to work j
■ and alter until they are pleased.
"I furnish employment for fifty women |
i during the entire year and for thr.?e |
j months bef>r.> Cfcrlstmns have ott*n had |
j five times as many. Few of these women i
| live in my ne'ghTjorhood, but are •~:: j t- ■,
i tered all over the country. 1 have never
| spen them. They apnly by mall with a j
| sample of their work and if I think 1t is
! satisfactory I forward them a pie<'e of
| work stamped, colors pelected and tha j
j most explicit directions as to how it
i must be -lone.
"I visit Europe once a year for three
j or more months and spend most of my ;
I time hurting for Ideas. Every season ;
! I have some new designs, «s it were, j
lin this country. T have executed n:any
orders from abroad an-1 have more thin
once completed rooms in the White
house. Some of the m"Mt *If pant him a
) in New York and Newport have whole
i floor* ornamented by hanging.*, cushions,
etc. In my opinion, han.l embroidery 1*
one of the largest fields r.pened to the

GROWTH OF WOMAN'S HAND.
Glovemakera Note Great Ineren.se ;n j
The size of a woman's glove Is not al- j
j together conclusive evidence of the size '
;of her h?nd, but if r .he testimony of j
j Klove dealers can be accepted women's ;
1 han-ls are getting larger year by year, j
j nn<s golf, tennis, rowing and driving must i
! be held responsible for it.
Glove dealers say tfcere is a blprsrer call !
• for gloves of a large size than formerly, i
| and that they h.ive to get rid of their ■
' smaller sizes at bargairvwales. Not only j
this, but athletics have made an lnrood i
on the sale of gloves,: Tor the athletic girl \
j nowadays eschews them altogether,, ex-
I tept in the winter, and even in town fash-
I ionable womtn are setm going abroad un- i
Besides this an artist asserts that the
athletic and outdoor life that, girls lead
nowadays has totally destroyed tho form
and shape of the hand. He declares wor
n! ens hands are tanned nnd reddened and
| stretched out of all proportion and golt
! receives the greatest amount of blame
for this, although the rest of the list of
fashionable sporta share the blime.
But if their hands are growing larger
women can glean comfort from the fact
that their feet are growing smaller.
"Girls between th"c ages of sixteen and
have big feet, ' said a fashion
able shoemaker, "but the girls who go In
for cycling and outdoor sports experience
a remarkable change before they reach
the age of twenty-one. The foot then
completely subsides, the flabbin. ss disap
pears, the flesh becomes firmer, the mus
cles and tendons get strong and the bones
become well set. Altogether a great dif
ference is seen.
"We have great difficulty with gfrls of
about seventeen, for they require v shoe
or tie as large as a full-grown woman's.
"When they get older and the foot be
comes settled new boot 3 made on the
old last will be found too. large. When
the young women complain that their
new shoes are too big we know the foot
has undergone the chancre.
"Another thing that may interest you,"
continued the shoemaker. "Is that theie
are so many tall girls nowaday a that tl^e
average height of man has to be raised.
'Put half an inch extra or the heel' Is an
order that we frequently receive from our
men customers. l*p to a few years ago
the lowest heel was all the rage, but
now the heel Is decidedly higher. I fig
ure it between half and three-quarto c of
an Inch. It Isn't fashion, either, for
you'll not find the high heel among tall
lqen. It Is only among the little fellows,
who try to add to their height.
"On the contrary, we have women cus
tomers now to whom we cater with low
heels. The tall girl differs from a man
In not being proud of her height."
I MEDICAL NOTES.
Dr.Dimltrcpol, of Bucharest, has elabor
ated a method for the treatment of con
sumption which is within reach of all.
The patient ia given- daily, for thirty or
forty days, each morning, a nutritive mix
ture composed of the yolks of four or
fb-e egg», fifteen grains of pepsin and
twelve and one-half ounces of hot milk,
the whole being well beaten up f-»r .Ive
minutes and flavored, according to taste,
with a little vanilla. Ten minutes later
a slice of bread and butter, weighing
about twelve and one-half ounces, well
salted to the extent of at least half a
tt£fpocnful of table sait. ;g given. Jf tha
patient is very wasted nutrient enemata
should be given in addition, composed of
the yolks of four eggs, 375 grains of liquid
peptone, seventy-five grains of pure salt
and 1,200 to 1,500 grains of hot, concen
trated bouillon or meat extract. This
enema, well beaten up, should be slowly
introduced, being preceded by an evacuat
ing enems. The patient takes dally from
90 to 100 grains of tribasic phosphate of
calcium and from thirty to sixty grains
of phosphate of sodium, as in the follow
ing formula: Tribasic phosphate of cal
cium, thirty grains; phosphate of sodium,
seven and one-half grains, in one powderj
three to six of which are to be taken
daily. After each meai two to four tea
spoonfuls of 10 per cent solution of hydro
chlorophosphate of calcium are taken in
half a glass of water. All of these drugs
are to be given in a graduated manner
for forty days, when it is necessary to
begin to diminish the dose, commencing
later with intermissions of fifteen days.
Common salt is an important factor in
this treatment, 225 grains are to be given
dally for thirty or forty days, the salt
being mixed with food already salted in
cooking, and after thig patients are to
take indefinitely from 90 to 120 grains of
salt daily. The diet comprises sixteen
to eighteen ounces of meat, a quart of
milk, three eggs, prepared to the patient's
taste, fish and vegetables in the habitual
| quantity, chosen by preference from those
; richest in nitrogen, such as beans and
I peas The same method of treatment
may be used in cases of scrofula, exclud
j ing artificial feeding.
Dr. Meany, !n an excellent article in
| the American Practitioner and New 3on
i over pressure in school work, says we
I are all familiar with instances where
| children have entered school with a well
! poised mental and physical balance, but
; who under adverse conditions became
j stunted and dwarfed both in mind and
j body, after a protracted attendance of
These adverse conditions omnipresent
In our school system are a commentary on
civilization, as they cause anomalies
I which school etrain fosters, and the chil
dren who are liable to nervous strains
; express themselves in emotional displays,
j restlessness, explosions of anger, nagging
j propensities, egotism or convulsive ten
i dencies, which may at the outset be destl
j tutft of moral or mental ."-ignincance. They
| are removable by removing the school
I strain and its consequences. If strength
| ened by protracted existence they lnten
| sify moral and physical degeneracy. At
! tention to these physical states by provid
-1 Ing suitable training, conjoined with
strict observance of the laws of hygiene
| and indoor sanitation, will prevent the
j development, and is oftentimes a cure of
j these conditions, and the resultant moral
| or mental deterioration.
School work should be adapted to the
j conditions of the child, and no matter
■ what excuse may be made for the practice
i as a part of our school system It Is un

Observations during the past few years
| show that there is a great decline in
■ the use of alcohol, and a change of opin
' ion regarding its medicinal qualities.
Time was when it was a common rem
! edy and had a reputation of being the
king of stimulants. It was conscientious
ly believed that by its use in a critical
i moment men had been snatched from
: the very Jaws of death and that It was
the one remedy to give first and froely
jin all cases of accident. Then it was
announced that alcohol was only a
stimulant In moderate doses and that
then It became a sedative. Now the re
port Is abroad that it Is an anesthetic
and sedative In all doses, and that It
has a primary stage of excitement, bat
Is never truly stimulating. The reputa
tion which it enjoyed as an appetizer,
a tonic, an assistant of digestion and a
promoter of strength has been blasted,
and certain physicians today claim that
it is Injurious to the stomach. That
which was once freely given as a food
for the fever-famished body must now
sit upon the -shelf under suspicion of
having beckoned on rather than fuupr'.tt
back the angel and the shroud. The
Charlotte Medfcul Journal says these
things are only Etraw.=, but the time
Is coming when we phall prescribe aloo
hol intelligently for certain indications
in certain dopes. As a beverage, how
ever, men will not cease drinking until

made as follows: Take twenty pounds
of Concord grapes, wash them, pull thorn
from the stems and make up the weight
with stemmed grapes. Boil them In two
quarts of water until they become pulpy
enough to strain through a cheese cloth
bag. This will take about ten minutes.
Add five pounds of granulated sugar,
boll again for five minutes and bottle.
Keep the bottles while filling in a pan of
boiling water. Pint bottles are prefer
able (beer bottles are Just the thing)
and they should be sealed tightly. This
will make about fifteen bottles. It will
keep several years.

Tea, which is so often used for relieving
headache. Is, according to Dr. Kellogg,
a common cause of rheumatism. Many
persons cannot forego the morning cup
of tea or coffee without suffering from
headache and depression during the day.
Them, the active principle of tea, and caf
fein, the active principle of coffee, are
somewhat similar in effect to uric acid.
Rheumatism and allied conditions have
their foundation in a so-called uric acid
diathesis; that Is. a condition resulting
from storing up in the body abnormal
quantities of uric acid and the urates or
salts of uric acid.

As the cold weather approaches peup'e
should bear in nrlnd the fact th.it it is
possible to catch as bad a cold in a
close, overheated. lil-venti!ated room as
in a cold draughty one. Much of the prev
alent catarrh, sore throat and other
forms of colds are due as much to want
of ventilation as to exposure to cold. Pjre
air Is the surest prevent^tive of these
diseases, but the mistake should not be
uiidf that pure air means cold air.

It is a well known fact that the pro
fession of medicine in the United States
is greatly over crowded. The Charlotte
Medical Journal records that the- United
State*, with a population 75.0-"*,000, has
120,000 physicians, or a doctor for every
625 inhabitants. Russia, on the other
hand, shows a fine opening for physicians,
since, with a population of 127,000,000, there
are only 1fc.334 physicians, or one duc'-ur
to every 6.926.

mlsmliiii Workings of Oil Monopoly.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 11.— George Rice,
of Marietta, 0., who designated himself
as a "moderate proucer of oil, " was be
fore the industrial commission today. Mr.
Rice had published a statement In ad
vance, setting forth his views, tiiat he
had copyrighted. Thia copyrighted
pamphlet the commission refused to re
ceive as such, but Mr. Rice was allowed
to proceed, under the rules* of ihe com
mission, using the pamphlet as the basis
of his statement. In his formal state
ment before the commission Mr. Rice ac
cused the railroad companies generally
with conspiring, in connection with the
Standard OH company, to drive Independ
ent refineries out of the field of activity.
He alleged instances of discrimination
made by the railroads in favor of the
Standard Oil company previous to the
passage of the interstate commerce law,
and asserted that rebates were still given.
Mr. Rice asserted in one case, many years
ago, a discrimination of 16 per cent had
been made for the Standard company,
When the hair begins to fall out and
lose its ■ lustre and beauty by turning
gray or faded, what moie evidence is
needed to prove that its he-iith is af
fected?—and that it needs medicine? No
more. I assure you. for there is a cause
for e\ery symptom that the hair givts
of turning gra* or losing its beauty In
any form. For a« the hair is k part nf
the human body, it is subject to ailment
as well as any other part, and there
fore should be treated intelligently. But
contrary to this common sense logic, no
greater Insult or worse abuse could ha
heaped upon this defenseless member of
tfur person than the use of hair dye.
To co!or the poor, sick hair with the
hair dye, and thereby drown its feeble
cry for nourishment. Is ltse!f a sin and
a crime against nature. Shame on ig
norant humanity that will not yield to
the laws of nature and study the need*
of their own body.
