FROM FASHION'S NOTEBOOK
Hints Concerning Some of the Mo dish. Fancies in the Costumes of the Season. Modish silks are of the soft, rich va riety. Soft old rose shades are gaining stead ily in favor. Sleeves show an increasing fullness above the elbow. Hosiery worn with tan shoes should , match the shade of leather exactly. Stocks of etamine are trimmed with Arabian braid and silk buttons. The approved summer wrap is on the mantilla order, with long stole ends. Auto coats fashioned from white flan nel are trimmed with Arabian braid. Supple fabrics will take the lead for street costumes during the coming win ter. A variation of brown likely to be pop ular in the fall is termed leather color. Moire antique is to be restored to favor, both for trimming purposes and gowns. Purple, particularly in its softer shad ings, will be much in evidence in the early fall. Bonnaz embroidery will figure cm the simpler styles of tailored hats for au tumn. Newest shapes In corsets are not quite so box-like as those in vogue for the past few years. High-draped belts of taffeta, louisine and liberty silk are worn with fetching summer gowns. Ostrich feathers will reign supreme for hat trimming and Prince of Wales tips will be revived. The high-crowned velvst hat, accord ing to Parisian advices, will be the lead er for fall and winter. Round broad brimmed felt hats are seen In champagne shade, with a single quill for ornamentation. Burnt orange Is a favorite tint for trimming purposes and black and blue is a frequently seen combination. Modes of the time of Louis XVI. and the directory will be the prevailing ones during the coming season. Befee hats of embroidery are trimmed with fruit such as peaches and cherries and foliage in natural colors. An extreme Parisian fancy is the wearing of a short, semi-loose crimson jacket with a white costume. For morning wear at summer resorts the surplice waist pown, with short el bow sleeve, Is enjoying considerable vogue. A chemisette or guimpe of eyelet embroidery is the usual accompaniment. SOME WAYS OF TO-DAY. In "Which Are Exemplified a Few of the Short-Comings of Mankind. It befell that a youth who deemed f unity the trick orehouting for help while in swimming, thereby fooling his friends, at last needed help, which not forthcoming he was drowned. Thereupon a writer of modern fables made moan, says the New York Sun. "How can I," he communed with himself, "write aught of this fool boy and not appear to plagiarize Aesop?" The Kentuckian had just smitten Carrie Nation to the ground and kicked her six times. "You understand, of course," he re marked to her, "that this is more pain ful to me than to you. However, there are times when Business must crowd Chivalry into a back seat. Permit me to summon an ambulance for you." A man taught that by sleeping on the stomach, the same pressed against the bare ground, one might absorb the elevating forces of nature. "But," said one prone to uafaith, "does not this give to the swine an un due advantage over mankind?" Of course an inquiry so trivial was met with silent scorn. An American having been held by a bandit for ransom besought the author ities thereafter that the bandit be made a king. "There is likelihood," he explained, "that this mighty man may capture me again, and it ill comports with my dig nity to be the prisoner of a mere ban dit" After losing all his money at the races, and also certain sums to which his title had been dubious, a man looked into the muzzle of a pistol and lost his brains. At the inquest the scientific sharps expressed wonder that a loss so trifling should have been fatal. A passenger having fallen from a surface car into the subway was gin gerly hauled forth and asked how he felt "I am grateful," he replied, "that If I had to fall into the subway I was permitted not to start from an elevated train." Thus may the silver lining be dis cerned. Freckle Lotion. There are many, many recipes and directions for removing freckles, but there are few that will banish them entirely. One of the best methods, however. Is to apply to the face a solu tion of niter and water. People's Home Journal. Best Complexion Bemedy.

Curious Instance of an Event Good for the Individual But Bad for the Bace. That certain surgical operations may, by saving the life of the individual, thwart the designs of nature, which de mand the death of the individual in or der to save the race from transmitted disease, is contended by Edwin G. Dex- J ter in a communication to Science. The writer makes a particular application to the case of the operation for appendi citis, which he regards as a curious in stance of an event that is good for the individual, but bad tor the race, thus forming an exception to one of the fun damental rules of evolution. He says: "Since the old theory of foreign lodg ments grape stones and the like in the appendix as the cause of the trouble has been proven false, at least iR a vast nvajerity of cases, we are foreed.to con sider appendicitis a disease, an inflam mation of a particularly serious nature, yet no more acicdental in its origin than are similar congestions in other parts of the body. But scientists tell us that diseases of all sorts at least the predis position to them are transmissible; that they run in families, and that the probability is greater that the children of diseased parents will fall heir to the particular maladies of the latter than that the children of unaffected parents will be troubled by them. It is true that in the case of appendicitis, recent acqui sition as it is to the catalogue of bodily ill, we have no exact data in support of the belief that it is transmissible, yet reasoning from analogy we have every right to believe that it is so. A heredi tary predisposition to many other forms of inflammation similar in all respects except that of the part affected has been fully demonstrated, and the Inference is certainly a logical one that appendicitis is no exception to the rule. "But undftr the conditions of nature such a transmission of disastrous pre disposition is taken care of through the early death of the individual with the consequent impossibility of passing them to the descendants. If death comes before the period of maturity Is reached, the lack of offspring means the total an nihilation so far as the race is concerned, of disastrous consequence in that par ticular line of descent. If it comes early In maturity, sch annihilation is not ab solute, but only relative, the danger to the race increasing with the length of life as measured by the number of chil dren. In any event nature demands death without offspring on the part of intrrvtaaals possessing racially disas- i.n..AJli.nnc.:rlnnc!

All danger of death from the particular diseased part so far as the individual is concerned, Is removed without lessening seemingly one whit its disastrous effects upon the race. - A long life is assured so far as the particular disease is concerned, and, all other things equal, a correspondingly large family with all the laws of heredity potent, so far as the probable transmis sion of the difficulty is concerned. To be lieve thatthesurgical removal of the dis eased part does away with the probabil Ity of the transmittal of the disease would be to accept the theory of the transmission of mutilations. This few thinking persons, familiar with the field of scientific thought, are willing to do HIS BELATED EXPLANATION Wanted Bee Stings for Rheuma tism, But It Was His Brother's. An innocent looking German boy walked into a drug store the other day and faced the proprietor, relates the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "Haf vou got some bees' stings for rheumatisms?" he shyly inquired. "Bees' stings for rheumatism?'.' the proprietor repeated. "Where did you hear of that?" "Why, muther vas reating it by de newsbapers." replied the lad. The proprietor laughed. "I've seen something of that kind in the papers," he said, "but I won't at tempt to offer you anything just as good. Where is the rheumatism?" "In de handt und in de arm," the boy replied. "Well, see here." said the proprietor with a sudden smile, "I haven't got the cure on my shelves, but I keep it in my back yard. You go out through this door and walk around my flower beds. When you see four or Ave bees resting I on a flower just try to pick them up. The boy nodded and went out. He was gone at least ten minutes. When he came back his face was red and his nose where an angry bee had alighted was beginning to swell. He I held out his hand. "I picked me some of dose bees oop he placidly remarked. "Did you?" said the amused propri etor. "And does your hand feel any better?" "It ain't for me," the boy placidly said. "It's for my bruder." Loose Chewing. Judge "Sam" Walker, a distin guished lawyer of Memphis, Tenn noted for his thrift, met Luke Wright now governor general of the Philip pines, in the court room one morning and said: "Luke, give me some of that fine cut tobacco of yours," and added, "I don't chew enough of that to buy it. Gen. Wright drew out his pouch and handed it to Walker, remarking with a dry smile: "No, Sam, you are mis taken. You don't buy enough to chew it" N. Y. Herald. Durable Woods.

Not as Bad as Fainted by Harsh Crit ics, But "Bridge" Is a Dread ful Bore. Lately certain critics have been much exercised over the manners and habits of what they choose to call "smart so ciety," and they have launched fiery philippics in the magazines and papers on the subject. But to criticise from the outside must be rather difficult and some what inaccurate, writes Mrs. George Cornwallis-West, in the Cosmopolitan. This section of society is supposed to be made up of mothers who neglect their children and their husbands, who live in a round of gayety, who think of noth ing but their elothes, who read nothing and know nothingwhose conversation is empty and frivolous, not to say vulgar; who drink and gamble and squander their money and their existence. But men and women of that type have existed since the world began, and are not con fined to one class of society or one coun try. Indeed, the fashionable world is often occupied in a manner which would as tonish their detractors and also past gen erations. One has only to consider the enterprises of all kinds in which society women of the present day are Interested, not to mention political and literary work, to realize how much must be done by them. The more prominent the woman the more she is called upon to do, and it is often a subject of admiration abroad what an Englishwoman or an American can and does accomplish. One of the great features of both coun try and town life is the playing of the popular game of bridge, which has tak en hold of society in a most extraordi nary fashion, to the exclusion of all other games of cards. A great deal of nonsense as to its gam bling evils has been said, even from the pulpit, but from that point of view it is innocence itself compared to the bacca rat and poker-playing of ten years ago not to speak of the games of hazard in the early Victorian era, when thousands were lost nightly In private London houses. Gambling at cards has existed ever 3lnce their invention, but since the in troduction of bridge it has certainly never been for such low stakes in Eng land. The points played in most houses range from a penny to a shilling. From a hostess' point of view bridge la a great boon; an easy way of disposing of and occapylng a number of guests, who in the course of a week may find the time dragging. ? On the other hand, like everything else In this world, there is a revers de la medalile, and if indulged in too much its evlls'will undeubtedly bring about a re action. Gambling Is certainly not the worst asnect of bridge. It is slowly but surely destroying all after-dinner conversation of any kind. Ttilo te a nuvtmae nViaco onfl when C!r- Pried to excess has certainly a deteriorat ing effect, not only on the intellect, but on the character. Art. literature, music, one seldom hears discussed politics sometimes and the people who indulge in them are soon voted bores and secretly thought to be taking up valuable time from the beloved tables. The regular bridge player becomes very selfish, sacrificing everything which interferes with his game. His manners, too, suffer, and hewill not attempt to re strain his temper, if he is cursed with one; he snarls, wrangles and falls, meta phorically speaking, on his wretched partner who has made some mistake un til, if she be a woman, he has reduced her to the verge of tears, or if a man, to wanting his pistols for two and coffee for one and this is supposed to be a pleas ant and profitable way of spending an evening! Colored Clothes and Heat. In France a very important discovery has just been made. It is that persons and things encased in black are just 13 degrees warmer in the sunshine than those in white or light colors. Obvious ly, therefore, all sable-hued articles of attire should be strictly tabooed in such weather as we have lately experienced. To a laFge extent women do clothe them selves in light-colored garments at this season, but it is monstrous that men should go about in tall hats and frock coats at this time of year, or that mourn ing should be insisted upon. London World. Chinese Dog Story. A Chinaman had three dogs. When he came home one evening he found them asleep on his couch of teakwood and marble. He whipped the dogs and drove them forth. The next night when the man came home the dogs were lying on the floor. But he placed his hand on the couch and found it warm from their bodies. Therefore he whipped the dogs again. The third night, returning home a little earlier than usual, he found the dogs sitting before the couch blowing on It to cool it! London World. As He Says It.
