Indianapolis, Oct. 7. Whi!e the
statement does not come from Mrs.
Tarkington, -wife of the author of "The '
Gentleman From Indiana" and other no-
rels, that she and her husband have '
separated, she has told some of her
friends that they will not live together
again, and has taken s house in anoth
er section of the city as a place of resi- ;
dence for herself and child.
During the summer the old Tarkin?- :
ton homestead at Pennsylvania and
Kleventh streets was redecorated and
many improvements made uion it and .
it was given out that it would be the
future home of Mr. and Mrs. Tarking
ton. To thrs house many of the be
longings of Mrs. Tarkington were
taken and are still there.

The announcement that they will
not again live together has caused a
great deal of surprise among their
friends, but it is now known that for
several weeks members of the family
have been cognizant of the lack of har. .
mony between the author and his wife
and have been hoping that the trouble!
would be amicably settled.
It is understood among their friends ;
that disagreements arose over the',
wandering life that Tarkington desires
to lead, while his wife wishes to en
joy the quiet of a permanent borne and
cares nothing for the life of Paris.

Fairy dear of bygone ages.
Come from childhood storied patres.
Touch with your aud my wishes
And so transform the world for me.
That I may never bitter be
For what life hath denied to me;
Learning to smile and bear my cross,
That others may not know my loss.
That I so blind may never be
To fail a brother's woe to see;
But rather share with him his pain
Till hope shall blossom once again.

The third and dearer than the rest,;
Is for the one whom I love best: j
That while he toils from day to day,:
The thought of me may light his way.'

Authoratative style, regardless of price mark is the key to the great successes of
our Millinery section.
In this wide, embracing Millinery display no message is more compelling than the un
mistakable capture of Paris style in the modest priced models.
What more typically Parisian than this great concourse of hats? The high crowns
so cleverly treated as to lend height to the shortest woman and increased dignity to the
tall one. the rich two-toned and changeable effects, the striking novelty bands and spark
ling ornaments; above all the almost limitless variety, so that every woman may find not
one, but tniny hars for her own type.
Judge these hats on their merits and you will find them interesting and with a
unique individual charm to the less expensive models as well as those direct from the
Fashion's latest note in the use of Ostrich Is thst it may be softly draped into high,
rounded Aitrette effects, very decorative and wholly novel. Many small tips may be
clustered or banded. Our designers have wo-ked out this latest MOTIF with great
success in trimming hats of velvet, brush felt and plush.
To be so cleverly corseted as to give the impression of wear
ing no corset at all is the last word In the act of corseting. Our
expert corsetieres know how to bring out th good point of ev
ery figure by selecting the corset best adapted to the Individual
