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.

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

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.

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

on his arrival In this country recently

escorted to the Waldorf hotel where
five troops of boy scouts, a troop from
each of the boroughs of Greater New

French flag fifteen feet long, were
lined up at salute and were reviewed
by General Nivelle.

organization whose Jamboree party of

an exhibition of scouting in Paris

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."
