HONOR FOR CANADA Wins Championships at Interna tional Live Stock Show. Splendid Exhibits, Both of Animals and Grain, Won Admiration of Judges and Spectators. One of the most Interesting sights at the International Live Stock show at Chicago was the evening parades of horses and cattle As the Cana dian section of these parades came in to view, and as it passed around the ring, there was continued applause. There were two or three reasons for this, the principal one being that In this section there were the wonderful Clydesdales, the Belgians and the Per cherons that had carried off champion ships and first prizes. The province of Saskatchewan had a splendid dis play of Clydesdales and showed in a number of classes, and In every class they got in the money. A remarkable and noted winning was that of the University of Saskatchewan, showing "Lady Bruce," female Clydesdale, in a class of 24 and taking second. In competition there were entries from 6uch famous studs as Conyngham Bros, of Wilkesbarre, P. L. James of Easton, Mass., and George Chiett of the same state. She was beaten by an imported mare, but was later made champion American-bred mare and reserve grand champion, an honor never before conferred upon anything but an Im ported animaL The following are some of the good things that Canada won at the Inter national, in a fair fight and no favors. Grand championship for Clydesdale stallions ; championship for American bred Clydesdale mares; reserve senior and reserve grand championships for Clydesdale mares ; grand champion Ship for Southdown sheep ; sweepstakes grand championship for wheat for the continent of America ; championship for Durum wheat for America. Another of the reasons for the ap plause given the Canadian sections of the parade was the heartiness with which the American spirit was imbued that impelled it to greet with the full est appreciation the efforts of the win ner, and the hundreds of Canadians io the Immense audience of the amphi theater appreciated it. The purpose that Canada had In making exhibits from their farms, whether it was of live stock and they had it there in all branches grains, grasses or roots, was to demonstrate that the war had not created devasta tion, that the country was alive with interest in the matter of production and that it had ability to produce in a manner that would bring it champion ships, and what better place than the International, where it would be placed before thousands, many of whom, with the enlightenment thus gained and with a desire to better their condition, would be made to realize that in the neighboring country to the north there was an opportunity that it might be of advantage to them to embrace.

Chicago Coat With Cape Over the Back Garment Gives the Wearer Much Younger and Less Staid Appearance. MANY LONG WINTER JACKETS There is much to be said for coats with cape backs other than that they are exceedingly fashionable, observes a prominent fashion correspondent. They have the grace of a cape without any of its impractical features. There Is the comfort of a good, substantial long coat combined with the artistic outline of the flowing cloak. That the cape is never really ab sent from fashions proves that It mvmt have some great staying pwer. There Is some reason for men's always wanting It for It Is always finding a ready acceptance. What can this reason be other than Navy Blue Velours de Laine Coat Trimmed With Bands of Royal Blue Velvet. its feminine grace? We may prate at length upon the practical In dress, but the practical minus beauty and artistic appeal never flnds real favor. The cape has considerable roman tic and historical background. This probably bears a subconscious Influ ence In its favor. Coming down to the purely practical, a coat Is made much warmer by a cape falling over the back, but I cannot say that this has anything to do with its hold on fashions. It can be claimed, however, that Its youthfulness does much for It. Cer tainly a coat of this type gives Its wearer a much younger and less staid appearance than the old-fashioned practical topcoat, which put the fin ishing touches in more ways than one on a perfectly good-looking costume, for, no matter how smart one's dress and hat might be, the effect was lost through the addition of a prosy look ing coat. Where Parisienne and American Agree It may safely be said that the cape coat Is one of this winter's greatest Paillettes Grow in Favor The other coat, inspired by the dress of the middle ages, is developed in black duvetyn, which makes a very smart topcoat. It Is embroidered in jade green and jet paillettes. The use of paillettes this season is most pronounced, this form of trimming be ing featured by a large majority of the leading dressmakers. Preference is given to black paillettes, jet bugles and jet beads, but colors, too, are often features, such as royal blue, dark green, brown and white. Evening wraps are very lovely. Many of them are in cape form and are made of brilliant colored velvets, fur trimmed. These capes are straight cut and wrap the figure closely, there being very little fullness. There are a few capes cut to follow closely the lines of the figure. This sort of cape clips the shoulders like a coat and hangs perfectly straight with no full ness whatever. A large number of three-piece suits have long coats that might almost be worn as a separate wrap. Indeed, so many of the winter jackets are long London Sends Sport Hats American Shops Full of English Styles More Attention Given to Millinery for Country Wear. Sport hats from London ! Our mil linery shops are full of them. And the American woman who goes in for outdoor life and, like the English woman, lives in her sport clothes un til it is time to change for dinner, has taken very kindly to the English type of sport hat, observes a fashion writer. After all, this is the sort of mil linery that the English excel in, for the English milliner rinds this type of hat in greater demand than any other. Therefore s-he spends much time over it, and it is only reason able that It should be of better design and better made than those of any other country. Our milliners are giving more and snore time to the consideration of hats "or life in the country, because the Aijiand for them is increasing all the successes. It is much favored by both the Parisienne and the Ameri can. A most interesting cape from Premat Is gray velours de lalne, and the lining, which is satin, exactly matches the cloth in color. This coat has practically two capes, as the large collar' forms a short shoulder cape at the back. The large cape extends in a point at the back. It falls to with in six or eight Inches from the bot tom of the coat. Another model shows the short cape which Jenny hangs from the top of high muffling collars of fur attached to suit jackets. In this Instance the cape Is of blue serge, while the collar Is of seal. This cape covers the back only. It does not extend over the shoulders, as many do. A coat from Lanvin features the long cape back which Is almost tha entire length of the coat. A soft shade of gray duvetyn was chosen for this model. There are trimming bands of green applique embroidery down both sides of the front, also deep bands of the embroidery on the full sleeve. Cape Back Effects Feature Suit. The plaited cape back, almost In the form of a panel, is novel but not likely to find the favor that the plain cape backs have. Some of the best French makers feature the cape back of fur, not only on long coats but on short box coats, making these cape backs the same length as tne coat it self. The cape back effect on suits Is also a noted feature. One very at tractive model of blue serge has a high moleskin collar, from the back o which hangs a cape reaching to just below the waistline, while the actual jacket, of box cut, falls straight to the hipline and Is embroidered around the hem with gold and royal blue threads. The coat fastens with two buttons just below the high fur collar, and again with two buttons at the bottom. Another Interesting model Is of to bacco brown duvetyn, with the cape back cut In one with the sleeves. This cape is edged with a two-inch band of applique embroidery, the em broidery again appearing down the sides of the coat itself. Heritage of the Middle Ages. A Second type of topcoat is that In which the moyen-age effect is carried out. These are of long, straight cut. sometimes with a bodice part hanging straight to just above the knees. This very iong-waisted effect, with the upper part of the garment hang ing straight, appears to be one of the essential features of this winter's clothes. It has not been carried out, however, In such a marked way in coats, as the means of embodying it In a coat presented considerable diffi culty. It was thought at first that what was suitable for a dress was not always adaptable in a coat. Now that coats have become so close akin to frocks, the characteristics of one belong quite as much to the other. One French coat shows a full flounce gathered to the upper portion at this point, thus forming the lower part of the coat. The flounce Is cut at inter vals in fishbone shape to show velvet underneath, the coat Itself being of cloth. The long coats shown by Jenny are of straight cut and in most Instances have the belt, or semblance of a belt, placed at a low waistline. j This model Is developed in navy blue velours de laine trimmed with bands of royal velvet down the right side to the edge of the coat, forming the belt, deep cuffs and high muffling col lar. The ornament and tassel, used on one side of the coat only, are of royal blue silk. that it seems hardly worth- while to call attention to their increased length. One of the very popular mod els shows a three-quarter length semi blousing jacket. The suit is devel oped in navy blue duvetyn with peas ant embroideries in red and brown with touches of fur. Slippers Match Frock. There is an increasing tendency by the smartly dressed woman to wear for evening a brocade slipper that matches her frock. This is the one occasion when a really high heel may be indulged in. Fringed Sweaters. Fringed sweaters are worn by some well dressed women. They show fringe around the lower edge end sometimes around the sleeve and collar as well. Combining Colors. The fashion for combining Klors, even startlingly different colors, offers many suggestions of the utmost utility and charm. time. They really are becoming the prettiest type of hat shown. The American milliner's conception of a sport hat is a little different from that of the English. Our hats might be termed a little less practical and a little more beautiful. The Eng lish must give considerable attention to getting something for outdoor life that will withstand fog and mist elements which do not give us much concern. Arranging the Veil.

BOY- SCOUTS (Conducted by National Council of tha Boy Scouts of America.) SCOUTS MEET VERDUN HERO The Boy Scouts of America were honored by being selected to greet Gen. Robert Georges Nivelle, forme! commander-in-chief of the French army and famous hero of Verdun, up on his arrival In this country recently to attend the Pilgrim Tercentenary celebration. A hundred and thirty scouts took part in the reception. At the French line pier five picked Eagle Scouts met the general as he came off the steamer which brought him to New York. They were with j Dr. Charles S. MacFarland, field scout commissioner, who is the general sec retary of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ In America, on whose invitation Gen. Nivelle came to this country. From the pier he was escorted to the Waldorf hotel where five troops of boy scouts, a troop from each of the boroughs of Greater New York, carrying American flags and a French flag fifteen feet long, were lined up at salute and were reviewed by General Nivelle. The scouts were greatly Interested In the blazing star of, the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor which the gray- haired general wore on his army uni form. His eighteen military honors other than the Legion of Honor were represented simply by five rows of ribbon bars across his left breast. A diminutive thirteen-year-old Man. hattan scout,1 Frank Tobln, who wore a tri-color ribbon was singled out by General Nivelle, who had him come forward to shake hands while in very good English he told the assembled scouts how pleased he was to be wel comed by representatives of this great organization whose Jamboree party of 300 picked scouts last summer gave an exhibition of scouting in Paris which opened his eyes and those of many other men of affairs there as to the great value of scout training in the formation of sturdy and useful manhood. GEN. WOOD PRAISES SCOUTS. In the recent Boy Scouts of America! essay contest on the subject of fire prevention Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood, commander of the central division of the army, acted as chairman of the board of judges. He took keen inter est in reading the essays, which, be cause he was unable to leave Fort Sheridan, HI., were taken to him from New York by a representative of the National Board of Fire Underwriters, under whose auspices the contest was conducted among the entire member ship of the boy scouts In the United States and Its possessions. At the conclusion of his work Major General Wood issued the following statement "I cannot tell you with how much interest and appreciation I read the essays from the boy scouts' contest with reference Vo fire prevention. The Idea of this contest was a fine one. It served to bring to the attention of the boy scouts throughout the country a most important field of effort, namely, that of vigilance in measures looking to fire prevention and the dissemina tion of Information concerning the sources of danger and what can be done to prevent. The fundamental cause of fires is carelessness, combined with a certain amount of ignorance. If the boy scouts take up the campaign in behalf of fire prevention and speak as intelligently as they have written I feel that we shall soon reduce the danger from fire." PUPILS WRITE SCOUT ESSAYS. Great interest is being manifested In all large cities in the experiment made by the board of education of New York city in making the writing of an essay on the subject "What Boy Scouts Can Do for Greater New York" a part of the regular classroom work on one day for the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades of all elementary public schools. To make the prepara tion of the material and the writing, and especially the study of the pur poses of scouting more effective and attractive, the work was made com petitive, with the following prizes: For the best essay In each school in Greater New York a bronze medal. for the best in each school district, a silver medal, for the best in each of the five boroughs, a gold medal, with a special grand prize for the best es say in the entire city, all prizes given by the Boy Scouts of America. , "This will give an admirable oppor tunity for the principals to discover the effectiveness of the teaching of practical civics in practical ways, and will focus fresh interest on the vital essentials of good citizenship." GOOD TURNS FOR BOY SCOUTS. Camp Kiwanls, built by the Klwanis club of Saginaw, Mich., for the boy scouts of that city, has one of the finest log cabins in the country, plans for which are being sought "from many cities by other clubs who want to boom this big boy movement.
