TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTI TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTtTTTTTT' ■ I Woman s Hair Crowning Glorg,. THAT "A woman’s crown of glory Is her hair" is emphasized more than ever this season, when the sole demand of coiffure styles Is Individuality and becomingness. With the vogue of the high waistline in the dress comes the empire style of hair dressing. For this rather fancy fashion the hair is waved loosely in front, parted to one side, brought low across the fore head and ears to the back of the head. A flat braid is laid across the top of the head, whose ends are hidden by a shower of short curls that cover the back of the head and hang in soft ringlets over the ears, close to the face. A novel head- .ress for this coiffure is a bandeau of old lace almost the width of the head at the top and narrowed at each side above the ears to go under two round pearl ornaments about the size of an old-fashioned silver watch, and from which fall the clusters of ourls over the ears. There seems to be a tendency to eliminate the puffs that have been popular for so long and substitute the psyche knot. A soft flat pompadour is often adopted, instead of the pasted lialr, if the style seems more natural. For on t.he whole the trend of the spring styles is towards natural, simple and sensible inodes. A rather simple and pretty style is that of parting the hair In the centre, drawing it back so as to be full and soft about the face. The ends of the thick braid, worn low across the back of the head, are twisted Into psyche knots over each ear. The wide braid, so popular this season, may be worn acros sthe back of the head, low in the neck or spread to the crown of the head, and is invariably becoming. A modification of the psyche knot is used by most of the fashionable hair dressers. and this Is not the hard wad of hair extending far out at the back of the head, but simply a soft roll or two,or three of them arranged well down toward the neck. The Yette bang is something new this year, tor several seasons there has been a movement in favor of the bangs, which were adopted by many women. It was the curled bang, then, but now the real old saucer bang is in vogue. You buy this bang by the- string. The bangs are about three inches long, and are trimmed and cut to suit the wearer after they are fastened on. Women who try to take off all their detachable hair experience the greatest difficulty of all when they visit the millinery shops. The huge hats and crowns make it impossible to wear the fashionable models without the addition of hair, until it is become a fact that tliefe is probably not a woman In a hundred to day that docs not find the need ofsomeadditlonai hair to wear the liats shown. Many women have become slaves to the invisible net. It has taken the place of the veil in many eases, for women who wore veils to keep their hair in place have found that the net accomplishes that, and never go out without one on. Dealers in hair goods are not frightened at the prediction that there will be no business for them, for they feel confident that the woman who has been wearing a lot of hair will never feel satisfied to go about with scanty locks. What was formerly called the turbanet Is now called the basquette cap. Instead of being round like the old turbanet, it Is oval shaped, and is thickly covered with hair. It is worn at the back of the head, and is then covered with the basquette braid, giving the head a fine shape. Persons who believe that the soft knot or simple coiffure Is the woman's own are generally misled, for usually it is a switch fashioned into the desired style before It is put on the head. To a certain extent, however, each woman is a law unto herself as re gards the dressing of her hair. And to show her "crown of glory" to its best advantage, the simple, natural, becoming and Individual style Is what she should adopt.

Negligees that are made of ribbon and lace are exceedingly dainty and exceedingly smart. This one is worn over a lingerie petticoat and the petti coat is narrow and straight of line. The jacket is a very simple one in spite of Its elaborate effect. The front and back portions arc cut In one and are joined to a peplum at the waist line, while sleeves are inserted in the arm holes. To give the effect illustrated rib bon and lace are sewed together, but the jacket can be utilized for any plain material quite as well as for this com bination. The peplum is straight at the lower edge, and the jacket could be made from bordered material with great success, the border being cut off and applied over the sleeve edges. The circular petticoat Is perfectly smooth over the hips and can be finished with or without the circular flounce and can also be made long or short. Besides serving for the negligee to be worn in one's own apartments, the jacket makes a very pretty model for break fast and general morning wear, for Amf\mKst\Eiw SUNDAY—BREAKFAST.

Dear Miss Doon: I am a regular reader of your valu- ! able advice; therefore. I ask you to try j to help me. My baby has a fine carriage lined with light tan corduroy. Unfor tunately It was left out all night and got soaked with rain. In drying it haa i become badly stained—large brown places, and very rough. Is there any thing that will clean it? Many thanks for any suggestions FORGETFUL. The very best thing to do would be to steam the corduroy, but as you cannot very well do this on account of it being fastened to the carriage, t sponge the spots with a mixture of j equal parts of ether, alcohol and am-' monla. A simple remedy which you can try before using the mixture Is to apply French chalk to the spots and afterward brush off with a clothes j brush. Information Wanted.

FOR many minutes Howland stood waiting as if life had left him. His eyes were on the door, but unseeing. He made no sound, no move ment again toward the aperture in the wall. Fate had dealt him the final blow, end when at last he roused him self from its flrst terrible effect there remained no glimmering of hope in his breast, no thought of the battle he had been making for freedom a short time before. The note fluttered from his fingers and he drew liis watch from his pocket and placed it on the table. It was a quarter after flve. There still remained forty-flve minutes. (To Re CoBtlnord Moalag.)

Here is an ex cellent remedy for whitening tlw hands: Put a few drops of lemon juica into the white of ,.n egg. If a lemon is not at hand a little alum water will answer.

His voice was low. “They escaped, M'seur.” With a deep breath Howland sank back. In a moment he leaned again toward Jean as he saw- come into the Frenchman's eyes a slumbering fire that a few seconds later blazed into vengeful malignity when he drew slow ly from an Inside pocket of his coat a small parcel wrapped and tied in soft buckskin. "They have sent you this. M’seur,” he said. “ ‘At the very last,’ they told me, ’let him read this.’ ” With his eyes on the parcel, scarcely breathing, Howland waited while with exasperating slowness Crolsset's brown lingers untied the cord that secured it. “First, you must understand what this meant to us in the North, M’seur.” said Jean, his hands covering the par cel after he had finished with the cord. “We are different who live up here— different from those who live in Mon treal and beyond. With us a llfettme is not too long to spend In avenging a cruel wrong. It is our honor of the North. I was 15 then, and had been fostered by the Factor and Iris wife since the day my mother died of the small-pox and I dragged myself into the post, almost dead of starvation. So it happened that 1 was like a brother to Meleese and the other three. The years passed, and the desire for vengeance grew In us as we became older, until It was the one thing that we most desired in life, even fill ing the gentle heart of Meleese. whom we sent to school in Montreal when she was eleven, M’seur. It was three years later —while she was still In Montreal—that I went on one of my wandering searches to a post at the hoad of the Great Slave, and there, M'sieur— there—" Croisset had risen. His long arms were stretched high, his head thrown back, his upturned face aflame with a passion that was almost that of prayer. “M’seur, I thank the great God in heaven that it was given to Jean Croisset to meet one of those whom we had pledged our lives to find—and I slew him!” 4 He stood silent, eyes partly closed, still as If in prayer. When he sank into his chair again the look of hatred had gone from his face. "It was the father, and I killed him, M’sieup—killed him slowly, telling him of what he had done as I choked the life from him: and then, a little at a time. I let the life back into him, forc ing him to tell me where I would find his son, the slayer ol Meleese’s father. And after that I closed on his throat until he was dead, and my dogs dragged his body through three hun dred miles of snow that the others might look on him and know that he was dead. That was six years ago. M'seur.” Howiand was scarcely breathing. "And the other—the son—" he whis pered tensely. “You found him. Crois set? You killed him?" "What would you have done. ; M’seur?” Howland's hand gripped those ihat guarded the little parcel. “I would have killed him. Jean." j He spoke slowly, deliberately. “I would have killed him,” he re- j peated. I “I am glad of that, M'seur." Jean was unwrapping the buckskin, fold after fold of it, until at last there : was revealed a roll of paper, soiled and yellow along the edges. "These pages are taken from the day-book at the post where the woman J I lived," he explained softly, smooth ing them under his hands. "Bach ' day the Factor of a post keeps j a reckoning of incidents as they | pass, as I have heard that sea j captains do on shipboard. It has been | a company law for hundreds of years. We have kept these pages to ourselves, j M'seur. They tell of what happened ! at our post sixteen years ago this win ! ter.” As he spoke the half-breed came to ! Howland's side, smoothing the first ' page on the table in front of him. his slim forefinger pointing to the first few lines. "They came on this day," he said, his breath close to the engineer’s ear. “These are their names. M'seur—the names of the two who destroyed the paradise that our Blessed Lady gave to us many years ago." In an instant Howland had read the lines. His blood seemed #to dry In his veins and his heart to stand still. For these were the words he read: "On this day there came to our post, from the Churohill way, John Howland and his son." With a sharp cry he sprang to his! | feet, overturning the stool, facing j j Orolsset. his hands clenched, his body | ; bent as if about to spring. Jean stood ; ! calmly, his white teeth agleam. Then. , slowly, he stretched out a hand. | “M'seur John Howland, will you read what happened to the . father and [ mother of the little Meleese sixteen i years ago? Will you read and under I stand why your life was sought on the Great North Trail, why you were placed on a case of dynamite in the Wekusko coyote, and why. with the coming of this morning’s dawn—at six-” He paused, shivering. Howland seemed not to notice the tremendous effort Orolsset vas making to control j himself. With the dazed speechlessness i of one recovering from a sudden blow | he turned to the table and bent over ! the papers that the Frenchman had i laid out before him. Five minutes later i he raised his head. His face was as : white as chalk. Deep lines had settled ; about his mouth.
