In February. That Ih, that It was dla

from that statement. The fact Ih spo

Tliiit I'nrlH was nhlo to put out about
two thousand mouols nt a time when
tlio stringency of everything In tho
French capital cuimod heurtHlckneas

bnmtry worthy of all tho praise and
approval that the buyers had to give.

that tho clothes lacked brilliancy of

bad the oval allbouette In her mind, all
her deMlgnerM had agreed uion It, and,
because she needed money, she pulled
the card from the pack, put It on the
table, and the game wa over.
And yet, among the rnaHseu, after all,
make a faHhlon worth while financially,
the drastic revolution In the Hllbouette
haM JtiHt begun to take good effect
The bujerw and reporters saw nothing
strikingly new In the exhibitions of
Paris fashions during the month of
March, but now, on the first of April,
the women nil over the continent nre
seriously taking Into consideration the
acceptance of the hobble skirt.
Again the Hobble Skirt.
There Ih no use dwelling nt this
hour on the fashion of the oval Hllbou
ette. You have all read and beard
about It until you are probably weary
of tho subject as a theory, but In
tensely Interested when It suddenly
appears as a necessity for you to ac
cept or refuse. Well, It Is well for jou
to accept the bobble skirt, for that Ih
tho only name that can really be given
to the prevailing pattern, which Is held
In JLo less than two yards at the hem.
The more debatable question Is how
this hobble skirt should bo achieved.
Hero aro some of tho ways that Franco
has dono It In her new gowns:
Kho has cut the skirt In melon-shaped
gores, hut this Is not a frequent trick.
It Is used In some skirts that belong to
coat skirts strictly for street wear.
Kho has made tho top of the skirt
over each hip exceedingly wide by ar
ranging a kind of slit-pocket effect and
then pulling tho fullness of tho skirt
tightly around tho legs below Ibis out
Ayaln she plaits Hip skirt at the
belt and lakes tho fullness from tho
plaits as It leaves tho knee lino, Into
a wide, stitched hem or a series of
stitched bands that reduce the width
to a yard and a half at the lower edge.
Kho has made an entirely plain
skirt and then attached panels of louso
plaiting at the sides of the walstllno
and let them drop to the knee lino,
where they are loosely tacked and
swing outward as the wearer walks.
Nearly all of these effects are worked
out In one-piece frocks rather than
In coat stilts, because France has put
most of her originality Into the former
and almost Ignored the la tor.

What Diseases Really Are.
Diseases are not isolated affections
of the single organs In which they
manifest themselves mumps of the
salivary glands; typhoid, of the bow
els ; consumption, of the lungs ; nephri
tis, of the kidneys; eczema, of the
skin, and so on but are a failure of
the body as a whole to carry on Its
functions, and the particular organs
are merely groups of cells that for
specific reasons show the defect.
In accepting a position on tbp ed
itorial staff of the New York Medical
Journal Dr. Smith Ely Jelllffe, the fa
mous specialist In nervous and mental
diseases, says this conception of dis
ease Is as old as Hippocrates, but Is
"too frequently overlooked In an era
of absorbing speclallstlc lnvestlga

days he took his bosom friend down
to see tho exhibition.
The friend looked the pictures over
critically, skeptically. Then he said:
"I see that big painting has a tn$r

"Yes," answered tho artist. "Mr.

"Glllson did? Honest? Well, there'
