JET IN JOBS Pearls Also Used to Add to Dec orations for the Hair. Sractlet Encircles Arm at Wrlit and Above Elbow, Connected by String of Beads. Jet used singly or combined with pearls makes up some of the most striking combs und headdresses, either seen In the simps or worn by smart I'urlslennes, observes a faslilon writer. A Jet comb noticed recently was set with two rows of pearls, the upper row two sizes larger than the lower. The touch of chic, however, lay In the fact thut the comb reached almost from ear to ear, giving a wonderful effect ugulnst the durk red hulr on which It was worn. A headdress made entirely from Jot consists of u narrow bund worn low on the forehead aud having three circular ornaments overlapping each other at the front. At either side ure Jet rlnss. which are as large as bracelets ai'd which give the effect of mammoth ear rings. Accompanying this headdress Is n pair of Jet bracelets, one enclrcllnc the arm at the wrist und the other above the elbow, and both connected by a string of jet beads. The premature ly white-haired woman who wore these affected a one-! leoe dress of white vel vet, the slight gathers across the front lield In at either side with a Jet orna ment. A new bracelet trade hiri-e enough tt wear Just below the shoulder is of pearls strung on silver and has a fringe of pearl beads which falls over (he arm. This fringe is sometimes of uni form lengch and at other times lias pointed scallops. This fringe Idea Is , carried out in bnt.-eiets of pearls com bined with onyx, thus making a much more striking and really smarter bracelet than the pearls alone. SUIT FOR BUSINESS WOMAN !

Hats of Felt. rints of felt, bound with a clre ribbon and pressed Into ridges or folds around the top of the crown, are par ticularly smart. They come in alt shades of tan and brown and In black und dark blue. There are two ways of trimming them. One Is to use ostrich and one is to use a eocarde, bow or bund of ribbon. The ribbon, of course, presenes the tailored ef fect of the liar. The ostrich makes It Into a more elaborate hat for aft ernoon dress wear. This winsome costume of white Raggedy Hem Line. Some of the tew frocl;s show skirts that are longer on one side than on the other, some are long back and BOY SCOUTS AT NAVAL ACADEMY An analysis of the present regi ment at AunupolU shows that bio midshipmen have been boy scouts, of this number OSti have gone as far as second class and ?M to first class rank. Thirty-three have been scout masters, of the first class scouts. 73 have been putrol leaders, 22 Kagle scouts, 0 Star scouts, and 7 Life scouts. In answer to a questionnaire the following facts were developed: of the total above mentioned, 400 were of the opinion that their boy scout experience had helped them gen erally In their present life, while U state that this experience has do finitely aided them in their academic life. It Is the verdict of ".17 that scouting had helped them pass thejr ontramv requirements to the academy and of MJ that Its training hail helped them In adjusting themselves to the discipline aud life of tin academy. serge is trimmed with black and white' front and short at sides, while more. braid and black wool fringe. The ever ready caps which reaches al most to the hem of the skirt is popu lar at Southern resorts. The vhite hat completes the outfit perhaps, are long nt the sides, with shorter b:Kk and front widths, and not n few, even of the separate skirts, ure arranged In draped panels so that a "raggedy" hem line Is In evidence. SPORT TOGS; OTHER APPAREL Vogue for Homespun and Tweed Mate rial; Spring Hosiery, Shoes and Gloves. At present, there Is a great vogue for Kport gnrmentg of homespun and tweed. These materials fashion the mostattructlve suits In uilurlng col or periwinkle, apple blossom, ver vain and adobe. Undoubtedly these yults will make a strong appeal to the " business woman next spring, as they possess excellent wearing qualities and are reasonable In price. Garments of knit fabrics are also most popular, little stri'.lghtllne dresses, capes which full in graceful folds, sweuters aud three-piece suits. Flowing sleeves continue to be worn but are now often attnehed to the wrist by the use of ribbons, or of Jeweled bracelets, or bunds of Jet or onyx. In fact, Jewelry Is worn to a marked degree Just at present; neck laces, earrings, bracelets and fancy girdles, all adding a barbaric note of richness to many an otherwise undec orated costume. The fan, too, con tinues lo occupy a cromlnent place In the affections of the debutante as well as in the matron's, and even the flat nosegay often accompanies frocks which simulate the quaint modes of the Thlrtlus. Looking back In retrospect to a year ago one realizes that skirts after all are much longer, though whether tboy will attain the ankle length of those worn by our I'arlslan sisters remains to be seen. With these long skirts come the large thit-trlintued hats. In the new spring hosiery, colors continue to rival black, and light tones sucn as gray, beige, sand und taupe are favored. It is expected that these delicate shades will be worn with black ns well as with matching shoes. The white stocking also will be to the fore if the vogue for the light-colored cotton dress materializes, and they are shown In funcy weaves as well as with colored stripes. The light shades In gloes. both kid and suede, are also preferred to black French gray, sand, mode and even white being offered for street wear. These spring gloves will be long, the gauniiet and the 12 and lft-button length being the choice. SCOUTS AT BIG CONFERENCE The boy scouts who were given tin great honor of being the olliclal pages at the limitation ( arms conference acquitted themselves so admirably that they won praise on all sides. Lord Ulddel, spokesman for the British delegation who, by the way, is the pub lisher of the Hritlsh maguzlne. The Hoy Scout, was particularly Interested In these Washington lads und always stopped to talk with them whenever he got a chance. He Is a great be liever In scouting und thinks it 1ms u wonderful future, based as It is on friendliness, helpfulness and inutuul understanding. "I love our British boys," he says, "but they are no hand somer, no kinder, nor more courteous than my splendid, manly, young friends of the conference at Washington." - FASHIONS IN BRIEF Closely fitting hats of felt and beaver are popular for sport wear. The bateau necklines and other shal low decolletes are preferred to the . , extremes Just now. Short rapes have stole collars of fur, and are edged with narrow black silk fringe. An uneven line at the hem may be very attractively developed by a sash tied so that one end hungs well below the skirt hem proper. The new handbags for spring must be tint and thin and ornamented with onyx, karcnsUe or Jewels, whether they be of silks, moires, velvets, faille or ' satin. Clusters of chenille dots on the tight veils will take one of the leading ranks among the veilings In the spring, in the cluster effects there will be several contrasting colors. A novelty apron, that has been es-. pecinlly featured at a smart New York shop Is mnde of suede rut In stripes that are studded with steel beads, forming a pattern. This novelty Is being shown as the successor to silk fringe, which has been so ex. tenslveiy used as dress trimming. It Is not generally known, but very well worth remembwfng, that the shine can be easily and quickly re moved from the shoulders and elbows of one's gowns by s gentle friction with emery paper. Don't rub too hard, Just enough to raise s little nap, and then, In the case of cashmere and other smooth goods, go over the place a few times with a warmed silk band-kerchief. An Economy In 8hoes. When plunning the out-of-door ward robe, a carefully thought-out color scheme Is Just as necessary as It Is In planning costumes for any other occa slon. Shoes, stockings, hats and gloves must be considered In relation to the several costumes which they must ac company. All-white shoes are a far safer Investment than those with col ored trimmings, unless one Is certain that the color employed will harmon ize with the hues of all the costumes that they are to be worn with during the season.

LOOK OUT FOR BIRO FRIENDS Reading (Pa.) scouts are maintain Ing feeding stations for birds through out the country, particularly on Mt. I'enn and Neverslnk mountain. They have set up a number of feed houses which they visit every Saturday or Sunday to see that their feathered friends have a sufficient larder. In sev eral cases It was found that these houses had been tampered with, prob ably by careless or willful persons, who do not realize what this provision means to birds during the winter. GOVERNOR HIKES WITH TROOP Governor Tarker of Louisiana, hav ing been officially Invested as a ten derfoot scout by a group of Eagles of Baton Rouge, went on a Lincoln's birthday hike with the local scouts by way of celebrating their anniversary. ALL AMERICAN BOY 8COUTS The Indian boys of the Chemana school have recently been organized Into scout troops under the auspice of the Salem (Oregon) counclL - I. Asa's Reformation (vv. l-o). Asa was the grandson of Iteholioain, Hoth his grandfather and father Tuvored Idolatry, but in spite of tills record of Ms ancestors, Asa bud a will of his own, an though -oung when lie came to the throne, Inagurat ed a campaign of reform which broiigh't great good, lie not only had the handicap of the Idolatry and Im mortality fostered bv the two former kings, but he had lo contend against the Inlluetice of his mother who lajd neournged Immoral worship (1 Kings 15:1.1). In order to carry out Ills re formatory measures I. had ro wrest authority from her by deposing her. Asa did that which win good ami right In the eyes of the l.ord (v. 2). 1. Cleared the laud of Idolatrous emblems and Images (vv. ll, o). (1) Strange altars. These were the allars devoted to other gods. a') High places. These were places where un lawful sacrifices were offered. (.'!) Broke down the Images. These were upright stones connected with Idola tror worship. (I) Cut down the groves. These were trees or poles connected with tree worship. He hud all these relics of Idolatry destroyed In Jerusalem ami other cities turougli ut his kingdom. II. Comm. dod .ludali to seek the Lord (v. -i). He knew that If the -vf-. ormatlon was to lie effective It must be by the positive seeking lifter and worshiping of Cod, accompanied by obedience to His commandments. )e sfructlve work avails little unless fol lowed by constructive. II. Asa's Defensive Preparations (vv. O S), 1. Built fortified cities (v. fi). The cities are not named, but the meaning, doubtless, is that It was a general sys tem of defense which involved the cities at strategic points. 2. He erected walls about the cities (v. 7). These were usually of stone. I'poti the walls were observa tion towers from which the position and movements of the enemy could be seen, and from which defensive war fare could be waged. 3. Made gates and barred them (v. "). The reason h assigns for these defensive preparations wns that they had sought the Lord Cod. Those who really trust Cod will make every effort to provide defense. 4. Had an army of spearmen (v. 8). These spearmen were also protected with large shields. The army was made up of 4SO.kh1 brave men. They were prepared to wage an offensive na well ns n defensive war. III. Asa's Victory Over Zerah, the Ethiopian (vv. 1112), 1. Asa set the battle In nrrny (v. 10). He went out to meet the enemy. first made a disposition of his means of defense. This was wisdom on his part. Intelligent faith moves the possessor to do first that which Is within bis power. 2. Asa's prayer (vv. 11, 12). He cried unto the Lord. He sought the source of national power. In thl prayer note (1) his conscious helpless ness. As he faced the Kgyptlnn army two to one against him. he wns clearly conscious of bis Impotency. The first requisite In obtaining help from Cod is conscious weakness. The Christian conquers not by self-reliance, but by selt-dlstrust and faith In God. (2) Ap peals to Cod for help. He knew that though- they were helpless before the mighty enemy, with God's help they could win the victory. One ninn with God s a, majority. (3) Reposes faith In God. The wortf "rest" menus tc lean upon to enst the entire weight upon. In the mensure that we reallw our need of support will we lent hard upon God. (4) Advanced cou rageously. ITe went forth depending upon God to fight for him. Rep I fnltb does not wnlt until It sees Its way clear, but goes forth expecting God to clear the way. (5) Hung himself upon God's armr. "0 Lord, thou art our God." Ills cause was God's muse. If God has taken us for Ills people and If we have taken Him for our God. no enemy can prevail against us. Mnj we experimentally sny, "Thou art my God," and hear Him say, "I am thy God !M 8. The Egyptians smitten (v. '12). The enemy fled before IsreoJ and could not recover themselves. iJilfii i l .
