ORATORIO NOVEL BUTSUCCESSFUL As a climax to eight seasons of splendid work the Bridgeport Oratorio society gave Pierne's "The Children's Crusade," before an audience that filled High school auditorium last evening. Dr. Arthur Mees, who has directed the work of the chorus, was given a deserved ovation as he step ped to the conductor's place, for un der his splendid leadership the society has made great strides. The Oratorio sung last evening was a distinct departure from those which have been given at previous concerts. There was a chorus of 75 children from the public schools that had been admirably trained by Clayton P. Stev ens. They sang remarkably well and their work added no little pleasure to the ensemble. With them a num ber of novel effects were obtained the choruses sung off stage being partic ularly effective. Miss Inez Barbour and Miss Irene Williiatms, sopranos: Robert Quaiit, tenor and Norman Jolif, baritone, were the soloists. The music is hard and presents many difficulties to the singer but all did splendidly and were most heartily applauded by their ap preciative listeners. In the last part where the children have embarked on shipboard on the last stage of their journey to Jerusa lem a storm takes place and the ef fects achieved by the orchestra were wonderful. The choruses are mag nificent and the society did mora than justice to them.

LAST LENTEN ORGAN RECITAL AT ST. JOHN'S condition Uiat I never expected to have children and my aunt advised me to take Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound. It im proved "m y health and restored a nor mal condition of my system so that I now h a v e a fine baby.

S 22 s 750 FEET DEEP IN SOME PLACE Fishermen who like thrills can get them by the carload in New Mexico. Roaring rapids and swirling pools naturally are not to be expected in more or less desert lands but Nature in one of her jestful moods has or namented the Pecos valley with a series of placid lakes, where perch lovers can do their angling in boats, but she forgot to put bottoms in the lakes, thereby making "rocking" tho height of foolhardiness. Where the water nas backed up underground among the foothills of the Pecos, southeast of Roswell, it has i dissolved the gypsum crust of the table land in about? a dozen places and the "roof" has fallen. The result is a chain of most beautiful little lake- ert like a strand of perfect turquoises set in red gold. These fresh water ponds, without apparent inlet or outlet, are ruffled only by the south wind, and their sur face is always warm under the daz zling sun. But neither their weird and unnatural location nor their beau- Display of Easter Apparel Tailored Suits and Spring Coats.

Double-toned Satins and corded weaves for sports skirts. Taffetas, Foulards and Satins for dresses. Georgettes and Crepe de Chines which are em broidered with motifs designed for evening and din ner gowns. The fact that a silk dress is required need not dis turb any one as to expense. Two widths of silk are certainly enough for a skirt in present styles and if gathered to a harem effect,which is graceful and mod est, the quantity of silk which a dress demands will not be large. All the fashionable shades are here. Third floor. A Summer Gown Easy to make Ruffled Flouncings of dotted Swiss edged with Valenciennes lace and trimmed with dainty hem stitching. Plain material, also dotted comes for waist and sleeves. White grounds with little dots in black, rose, blue and lavender. Plain Organdie Flouncings in bhie, rose pink, ap ricot and jade.

The Millinery At the entrance to the Millinery Shop stands a "good luck" bird to welcome visitors. This creature, con structed of a huge pine cone mounted on long yellow legs surmounted by a wise old bald head with a long bill, has apparently eminated from some springtime woodland or river bank. He directs the way to a wonderful showing1 of hats. The greater num ber of these hats have been made in the Read atelier, and that means there are no others like them. A Patent Leather Sailor, very light in weight, has for sole decoration a bunch of grapes and cherries done in raffia. A graceful modei of Horse Hair Braid is tied about the crown with narrow gros grain ribbon which secures a bunch of cherries in green, black and red at all stages of ripeness. There are many flowers. A dressy little toque is covered with pink roses. Small French flowers decorate the brims and crowns of unusual styles. It is impossible to list these distinctive novelties and an early visit will prove interesting. Second floor. Men s Wear The newest Scarves are of small conservative style and very rich looking. Many are in changeable effects which in certain lights look dark, but as they turn, a flash of gay coloring is disclosed. Two-toned Heather mixtures are in evidence. These in subdued combinations will please men of quiet taste. There are vivid blocks and squares of yellow, black, green or red, to suit the taste of the youthful good dresser. Men's Golf Hose.

Fishermen who can sit quietly and fear nothing get large catches in the lakes. Recently a man and a boy pulled out ninety fair sized perch in eighty minutes. The whole Pecos Valley is so level as to appear more like a plain than a valley. The Sierra Blanca on the west and the Pecos hills on the east border it in and make a pathway for is covered with a reddish brown al luvial soil washed down from the mountains on the west. The land is unbelievably fertile but almost a desert on account of an irregular and scanty rainfall. Far down below the level of this soil is an impervious layer of clay laid down in a prehistoric geological age. This acts as a water table over which runs an apparently inexhaustible supply of good water fed by the melt ing snows on the Sierras. As the sur face of the clay dins slightly to tho cast tne water flows down until it strikes the wrinkle in the earth's crust known as the Pecos hills. Here great blocks of rock formation have been tipped on edge and form an im passable barrier for the water. Almost anywhere in the valley west of the hills drilling produces an abundance of artesian wells but the land to the east apparently is bone dry. To these artesian wells is owed the beauty and prosperity of the green and fertile fields and orchards Bight!
