A rather green looking chap went Into one of our department stores the other day and, sauntering up to the counter, where dozens of men's caps were displayed, he looked carefully through the stock, but seemed unable to find what he wanted. "Just what kind of a cap are you looking for?" asked the salesman at length. "Well, said the youth. 'I bought me a motorcycle the other' day, and thought I'd like one of those caps with a peek at the back." Boston Tran script. His Gain. "Ssihe declined to marry him after all." "I suppose he's heartbroken." "I don't think so. He says things worked out all right. He asked for u raise In pay, thinking he was about to get married, and received It, and so he's that much ahead of the game." Argument Didn't Work.

"The Illustrations In most Dickens publics tlons discourage a render at the out set. They show people whose clothes are so terribly out of style." No Self-Flattery. "Are you a servant of the people?" "No," replied Senator Sorghum; "1 don't feel that way about It. While 1 enjoy a fair measure of confidence and esteem, nobody thinks of making the complimentary fuss over me that Is made over a good servant." Relatively Safe. "You are as safe In an airship as you are on the ground." "Maybe I am," replied the patient eltlxen. "I live In a town where they buve grade crossings."

The art of the tailor Is put to the test when he must adapt a mode to the age of his patron apd modify It in accord- once. In suits there are those that ex press the buoyancy of youth, those that convey the spirit and poise of later and fuller life, and those that at test to the dignity, quiet and richness of age. None of these have been al together left out of the displays, but It Is natural that suits for younger wo men should predominate and two of these are pictured here. The suit at the left of the Illustra tion Is built on youthful lines to start with and Is made of a soft cloth "duvet de lalne," In brown. The box coat, which flnres somewhat, has a novel trimming at the bottom of che nille fringe and a collar and cuffs of STARS IN MILLINERY SKY, DEPICT WORK OF ARTISTS pOUIt distinct types of hats nppeaf here, each one of them entitled to be called a star In the galaxy of Its particular kind. They are . forecasts of what we may expect to see In the millinery sky this winter, and they are enchanting. At a glance we per ceive them to be the work of artists, from tlie frame foundations to the last minute details of their making and trimming, and concede that only expert professionals can make them. Think this over when the price of hats Is under discussion and be willing to pay for faultless workmanship. At the top of the group a dress hat, of black velvet, has a soft crown and straight wide brim with a novel finish about Its edge. For this border num bers of shiny black ornaments having the sphrkle of jet are used. The lines of the crown and brim are beautifully balanced, and the shape becoming to ninny faces. One of the shapes that artists love appears In the youthful model at the Tans Match Hats. Fans which have firmly established themselves as a charming adjunct to the costume now are being designed to match or blend with the hat worn. Hnts and fans are being produced in sets. One of the most popular of these shows hat and fan each made of black shadow lace and black velvet. The four-seetlon crown and brim of the hat, which Is transparent, are made of the lace outlined with velvet. The trimming Is of hand-made ribbon flowers of Harding blue, flame and brown caracul fur. It fastens up the front with odd, oblong buttons. It Is a youthful affair as It Is, but a hand of fur substituted for the chenille fringe will adapt It to very young women. The shortness of the skirt Indicates that It was meant for them. The handsome suit at the right, made of black suede cloth, Is-distinctly matronly. The cont Is elaborated by side panels, by variations In Its length nnd by a rich embroidery of black silk nnd silver tinsel. It has a modish collar of natural squirrel fur and both the skirt and coat approve the style of longer lines. It would be hard to find anything to excel this In a suit Hint Is distinctive and rich enough for the usual social affairs that Interest women. It Is Just what they need for their clubs, concerts, church er.tertulnments, teas and other In formal gatherings. left. It Is a picture hat of felt and seems to belong to girlhood, enhanc ing the beauty of faces that can wear It. It Is simply trimmed preserving Its youthful character by refraining from any ornament except the quaint applique flower motif on the front of the very large crown. The well-poised, spirited matron will find a hat that suits her In the bril liant turban of brocaded sntln nt the right, with Its odd, sophisticated drapery. This hat has a French ac cent, but whatever its origin, its dis tinction Is clear. The last hat In the group is a fa miliar shape draped with duvetyn and trimmed with beads and bead tassels. It is here because it is demanded, nnd Is quite likely to prove the favorite type of hat for street wear. corrnottT fr vmnM hiwaki mho opal silk shot with tinsel with a single long velvet streamer. The fan Is sim ilarly trimmed with a pocket In the handle In which a vanity case may be carried. Coat and Frock. The black satin frock with a box coat of the same material Is favored for wear by many women who stnrt the Idle hours after the luncheon hour. Sometimes the upper parts of the frock are built of georgette crepe, can ton or Chinese embroidery. Ashevllle.

This will be used erecting a modern school building that will be a credit to the town and o the county. Governor Not In, Controversy. Ashevllle. Governor Morrison will not enter into any controversy be- Ltween capital and labor and, so far as the dispute at Concord and Kanna polls Is concerned, will leave Its ad justment solely to the parties involv ed. However, he will see that thp rights of every citizen of the state are protected and that no violence shall be tolerated. He expressed pleasure that no seri ous disturbances have taken place In any of the strike areas during the progress of the strike. Shrlners Will Erect Mosque. Charlotte.

This pretense was carried to great lengths at one time, and the cere monv took on some nolnts of likeness to the bridal customs of savage coun tries, for the speaker was expected to make a show even of physical re sistance .when led to the chair. It was not an original custom of the house. Far back In history It appears that speakers protested to the bonse and to the crown against their elec tion only when they really did not want to be appointed. It seems to have been under the Tudors that a ridiculous subservience was Imported, and It was expected of the speaker, that he should "make repeated ex cuses and declare himself unworthy of election."
