GRACEFUL TEA GOWN; THE SEPARATE BLOUSE MlllllilllllllMlM OF course not all of us are given to wearing as elaborate a tea gown as our Illustration sets forth, but we like to have it In reserve. The home negligee becomes the more Important as the strenuous demands of club life and outside activities Increase. There Is "power in repose' and there is direct psychology in relaxing from the day's anxieties and withdrawing Into the sa cred precincts of home. A becoming negligee Is part of the treatment for "nerves' and It need not exceed the simplicity of one of the new "slip-on" crepe blouse frocks to effect a cure. An Elaborate or It may be as picrareviuely elaborate as the silken creation shown, which In this instance Is of orchid crepe with transparent lace flowing sleeves. The picture complete Insists on satin "mules" for the feet, and they match the gown. The breakfast coat has lost none of Its favor and It Is popular In two toned taffeta and satin with intriguing lace frivolities and ribbon bows. Many deep-colored satins have sleeves of paisley cut in mandarin fashion. Satin crepe or canton lends Itself to the grace of the negligee and the new est development in seasonable showings are Deflowered georgettes and fancy prints, on white. The latter Is best In white, bordered In bright shawl-like I I u " Simple Lingerie Waist, paisley patterns, which suggest the half-width stitched from hem to hem vertically. Black satin lined with blight color Is shown to some extent. That "one thing calls for another" Is demonstrated In the stunning new skirts which herald a vogue for the shirtwaist. They are entirely out of the ordinary referring to those adorable new fringed tweeds, home spuns and basket weaves, which to see Is to covet. Some clever mind dis- Straight Frocks Reign. In this matter of dining in public, Paris Is following the English fashion, and, at every smart restaurant, one sees women in formal costume and very much adorned, and the adorn ment Is never a matter of costume It self, but always of the jewels worn with It, for there Is little novelty to be seen in the gowns. Women seem to have acquired the habit of these simple, straight frocks, slightly drawn in hy nn elaborate girdle, and they iwill hne no others. Is it for good or covered that these coarse woven woolen fabrics could be effectively frayed, or fringed by hand, and the process Is universal In styledom. So skirts fringed around the bottom and up one side of the front, greet one at every display, and they are the most Orient. Greek draperies full grace fully over the shoulders by means of alluring shades of heather tones of vio let, blue, old rose and suit Bhades as well. There are capes to match, and In such a combination style supreme Is attained. The above is by way of saying that Tea Gown. shirt waists and separate over-blouse effects are of pronounced Importance, and all on account of these adorable skirts with capes as announced. This separate skirt vogue estab lishes the supremacy of the shirt waist The favor of the one depends upon the favor of the other. So it Is, that the simple, unaffected lingerie waist, which launders crisp and fresh, has come Into fashion again. New models are brought out, especially in organdy, handkerchief linen and batiste, emphasizing especially English eyelet ecru batiste. Very elaborate hand-drawn hem stitching Is noted in sheer linen waists, and this sort of needlework la being featured In the better wasb blouses. i.JSx.:.v!SS..v..w-..J Launder white silk and satin ta leurs are also in excellent standln The shirt waist In our Illustration la of a new jersey silk weave, which does not turn yellow when tubbed.

Beethoven's Marvelous Music The mysterious charms of Goethe's song of Mignon, to which Beethoven wrote the music, is that the song is the expression of the same awe struck yearning which wails and thun ders through the music of the master. In the melody alone nil the wild vague ness and dim aspiration of the song are manifest, and only because the union Is perfect is the impression uni form.

AARY GRAHAA BONNER. - CQPVtlGMT IT VISUM tfflrVtrtl IfH'OM SHORT-TAILED SHREWS "I've always been so glad," said Mr. Short-Tailed Shrew, "that my name was so different from the names of other creatures. "It wouldn't be nearly so interesting to be named anything else as it is to be known as a short-tailed shrew. There is something so unusual and at tractive about the name. "Don't you think so too?" " "I agree with you, but then of course I would agree with you natural ly, as my name is the same," sard Mrs. Short-Tailed Shrew. "We're not very sociable as a rule, but you and I are pretty sociable at present," Mr. Short-Tailed Shrew con tinued. "Do you know I wonder if people know how helpful we are to them?" asked Mrs. Short-Tailed Shrew. "I am sure I don't know," said Mr. Short-Tailed Shrew. "Why do you ask?" "Well, I hope that they do, end I hope they will learn it more and more, or rather that more and more people will learn that the little short-tailed shrew or mole shrew as he is some times known does everything he can to help people. "He eats Insects and bugs which are harmful and is never anything but nice1 in his actions. "He has a great deal of courage, and though he can hnrdly see at all be will fight bravely if he has to, even if he can't see the enemy who Is attack ing hiin. "Of course his sense of smell is very keen and strong and he can rush this "Others by Streams." way and that by feeling and by smell. "He can see light from dark, but he hasn't much to boast of hi the way of eyesight or eyes. "Some of us are fond of living In the forests, others by streams, others again by fields. We're not In the least fussy. "We burrow In the ground nnd have fine runways where we go from place to place. "Our homes are beautiful with a number of rooms papered and car peted by soft grass and leaves. "We eat more in a day than we weigh. That is if anyone weighed the amount of food we ate In a day they would find that we were much smaller in size than the quantity of food we had eaten. "But It doesn't hurt us for we are so active, always so busy. We do not even rest and sleep in the winter the way some creatures do. "That is, I mean we do not go to sleep for the winter. "We have very keen sense of hear ing. "Oh, yes, we can hear very well. "But I must say I have no use for creatures who eat all the time and who are lazy. AVe must eat a lot In order to have the strength to do so much. "And we must do a lot In order to be able to eat a lot! I don't like to hear of creatures who eat and eat and eat and who then feel too lazy to do anything. That is dreadful. "We can protect ourselves by our bravery and also by our musk glands which have a curious odor to them which the other animals do not like, we are thankful to say. "We can squeak and cry and we can become very angry. But we're not dreadful little creatures at all, and I do wish people would hear that we are not." "Perhaps they will," said Mr. Short Tailed Shrew. "And perhaps the next time they see a little dark animal which looks something like a mole they will say: " 'There Is a nice short-tailed shrew. We will not harm him.' " "Oh, that would be pleasant indeed," said Mrs. Short-Tailed Shrew. "Well, I believe we have talked enough. 1 have plenty to do and then I don't bother much nbout being sociable and talking my time away." "Neither do I," said Mr. Short Tailed Shrew as he wiggled his snout, which was his way of saying a polite good-by to Mrs. Short-Tailed Shrew. Horse's Perilous Trip. City Point. Belfast. Me., was re cently electrified by a regular cir cus feat when Robin, a chestnut horse owned by Fred A. Holmes, attached to a heavy rack used for hauling barrels, crossed the long open single trestle of the railroad bridge. The driver was taken sick as the team approached the bridge, and the horse, accepting the path as a part of the day's work, carefully placing his feet ,Dn the Ice-covered stringers, crossed over to solid ground. Boston Globe. Moths and Mimicry. In some large quarries In Argentina it has been observed that a certain species of night-flying moths frequents these places during the day to rest. The moths lie flat against the rocks, which they match perfectly in color, and are practically invisible. This in stance Is peculiar by reason of the fact that these quarries contain a colored stone which is unknown elsewhere, and the further fact that it is less than a hundred years since the quar ries were opened. Scientific American. Billy Sullivan Had Worries of His Own Billy Sullivan, famous fatcher, a few years back acted as man ager of the Cleveland Sox second team on a spring trip, and had with him a bunch of young pitch ers who were as wild as batters. They played a series at the Los Angeles park, and in three of the first four games the Angels picked the seventh Inning for scoring a cluster of six runs. It got so that everybody had to laugh and wait, with expecta tion, for the seventh round. In these games Lena Black burn, who was on shortstop, sev eral times yelled down to Sulli van to throw the ball, because he had a swell opening to catch a runner flat-footed off the base. . Afterward Blackburn asked Sullivan why he hadn't noticed his sign to throw the ball "I have enough trouble keeping those wild pitches in the ball park without watchine the bases," replied the catcher. HOG AN SAVED $2 AT EXPENSE OF UMPIRE Former Pacific Coast Player Tells Amusing Story. Arbiter With Only Three Fingers on Hand Couldn't Make $5 Fine Stand President of League Overrules His Umps. George Hlldebrand, the American league umpire, is sponsor for the fol lowing story: Before coming to the American league Hildebrand played, then um pired in the Pacific Coast league. In that league was the late Hap Hogan, who, in his day, was to the coast league fans what Nick Altrock Is to the big league circuit. Hogan was nothing, if not original. On the coast they still talk of some Umpire George Hildebrand. of the stunts that he pulled at the ex pense of players, fans nnd umpires. Hildebrand's story deals with an um pire. In those days It was customary for the umpires to fine the players for various offenses. Often in assessing the fine It was a habit with most umpires, if the fine was $5, to raise his hand and say, "It will just cost you that much." Working with Hildebrand In a certain game was an umpire who had only three fingers on his right hand. Hogan got Into an argument with this umpire. The umpire finally decided he wanted to fine Hogan $5, but he merely raised the hand containing the three fingers and said, "It will cost you that much." Hogan neglected to pay the fine. hoping the umpire would forget It. The "ump" didn't, and the president advised Hogan he should pay It im mediately If he desired to continue playing. , Hogan immediately sent a check for $3. On Its receipt the president sus pended him. Hogan refused to pay the other $2. As manager of the c'.ub he refused to put his team on the field. The president of the league was gotten on the telephone, the conditions of the fine explained, and the presi dent ruled In favor of Hogan. Warhop Goes to Columbia. Secretary Farrell, as chairman : the national board, has settled a con tention over the services of Jack Warhop by awarding him to Columbia of the South Atlantic league. This knocks out the idea of Warhop man aging the Grand Rapids team of the Central league. Athletics Is Hoyt's Jinx. Walte Hoyt, Yankee pitcher, has never beaten the lowly Athletics of the American league on the Philadelphia club's field. Red Sox Sail Dlvlney. The Greenville club has announced the sale of pitcher Harold Dlvlney, for merly of the Boston Red Sox, to the Galveston club of the Texas league. Giants Sign Grid Star. New York Nationals have slimed Ed- wnrrt Hale, star halfback last season of the Mississippi college eleven, and a right-handed pitcher of unusual Charleston Gets Donnelly. The Charleston club of the South Atlantic league is reported as having purchased First Baseman Robert Don nelly from the London club of the Mlchlgnn-Ontnrio league. Dodgers Sign Collegian. William Ward of Mtaml, captain and backstop of the University of Florida baseball team, has signed a contract with the Brooklyn National leagri (dub. 0 V 'r vVl r s y'' y i i ii ANGORAS ARE HIGHLY USEFUL Animal Is Disease Resistant, Thrives on Detrimental Plants and Is Profitable. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) The Angora goat, disease resistant, thriving on the twigs, buds and leaves of brush and other detrimental plants, and supplying excellent meat and highly useful hair and skins, is still un known to most people of this country which Is one of the largest raisers of Angoras in the world. These are a few of the interesting facts brought Yearling Angora Doe. out in a recent Farmers' Bulletin 1203, The Angora Goat, published by the United States Department of Agri culture, which contains detailed in formation about these useful animals, from a brief history of their develop ment down to management of goat ranches, the marketing of mohair, and the treatment of diseases. Texas Is the leading goat-raising region of the United States, having more Angoras than all other states com bined. Conditions of topography, al titude, climate, and price of land have all joined to help make the ranches successful. Open-brush range, similar to that in Texas, makes the remaining part of the Southwest second in Angora ranging. Many fine orchards In the Northwest stand on land that was brushed off by the goats, and there Is much land In that region that is adapt ed for permanent goat ranging. The Ozarks, in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas, contain many bands of Angoras and will support more on a permanent brush-utilizing basis supplemented with winter feed ing. Outside the areas where there Is typical goat range Angoras may be used for brush-clearing by handling them much as sheep are handled. The bulletin may be obtained free by addressing the Department of Agriculture at Washington, D. C. ALFALFA TEA NOT IN FAVOR Evidence Does Not Show Any Great Advantage to Be Gained by Use of Liquor. Alfalfa tea, made by pouring boil ing water on hay and allowing it to steep for a few hours, or by stirring alfalfa meal Into cool water and straining the) mixture after several hours, has been highly recommended from time to time for feeding young animals, but the evidence reviewed by the United States Department of Agri culture does not show any great ad vantage to be gained through the use of this liquor. Some experiment sta tions have found that pigs made better gains when corn meal and middlings were mixed with alfalfa tea rather than water, .but the additional gains were hardly enough to pay for the In creased expense. Calves fed alfalfa tea made poor gains and suffered much from scours. On the whole, the practice of making this tea for live stock should be discouraged, says the department. HELP EFFICIENCY OF HORSE Numerous Inquiries Received at Mis souri College of Agriculture for Hitches. Farmers are. making use of power In larger units than ever before. Num erous inquiries for three-horse hitches for wagons and five to eight-horse hitches for plows are being received by the Missouri College of Agricul ture, says J. C. Wooley of the agricul tural engineering -department. The three-horse load will take but little more of the man's time than the two, but his efficiency has been increased 50 per cent. Oats Best for Sows.' Oats Is a much better grain for srood sows than corn, and a mixture of about equal parts of oats and corn Is better than either grain alone. Al falfa or even clover hay will pay good returns when fed to brood sows. Alfalfa Bad for Horses. It seems advisable, Judging from the results of experiment, not to feed a heavy alfalfa ration with corn to growing horses, particularly to pure breds when seeking the best possible development. Way to Improve Crops. To improve crops it Is always easiest jind best to begin with a well-chosen variety. Then one may select the best type of plants in that variety. Im provement is hardly possible where the variety is not pure. Sheep Frighten Easily. - Sheep are susceptible to being sud denly frightened running i gainst one another through doors or narrow pas sages, between racks, causing abortion or internal injury.
