By Mrs. Harold Sanford
taih the performance of n few unpleasant
duties is the only fly in the ointment, and in view of the benefits to accrue,
she considers the payment slight and strikes a good bargain accordingly.
But the woman of primitive instincts, whose emotions have not been
dulled by civilizatiqn's edge, the idea of marriage with a man whom she
does not love is an impossible issue. f
Every fiber of her being rebels at the barter; she has no choice in
the matter.
Money to her is a very insignificant part of the formula for happi
ness, and not to be reckoned in conjunction with the big primal forces
that go to make up her existence.
She scorns, to hawk her wares from one prospective buyer to another,
but reserves for herself the right to win her own happiness, and gives her
self with the splendid generosity of a great nature.
Of such are the real mothers of the race.

It is thought by some in Germany
that tho name "harem skirt" or more
horrible still "trouser skirt" is the
only thing that prevents the spread
and general use of this much, talked of
article of wearing apparel. So these
same people have offered a prize for
tho best names and have hit up "Ama
zon" and "cavalier" skirt as a result,
and hope by keeping these more allur
ing titles before the feminine public to
popularize the garment. Not that it

Slight Change In Styles Will Be Noted
in the Coming Season's
An unusually decollate neck finish,
extremely short sleeves and an. irregular-shaped
train inclined to shortness
are features having a bearing on the
new evening gowns for fall and win
ter. Lace plays a large part, both, as
a foundation material and for trim
ming purposes, every variety being
used, no matter what the texture or
pattern. Allover designs or robe
gowns aro used as an underbody, in
which case the filmy draperies par

ished silks, crepes and satins, and in
these instances usually are cut in one
with tho waist. Some of the newest
mode's show the allover lace exten
sion below the waist line in cutaway
coat effect, Citoyenne frill or peplura.
In some Instances the pointed effect
is made in tho front, with tapering
lines cutting off to the waist in the

Detachable Flower.
It must have been the girl of small
allowance who invented the detach
able flower for her hat. Trimming
the winter's chapeaux Is so simple
that it is an easy matter to whisk
off one flower and put on another to
match the next costume worn.

Idea is to outline the edges of these
roses with tiny beads to correspond
to the color of the costume worn.
Instead of sewing on the detach
able roses each time, they are pro
vided with tiny safety pins on the
under side, which are quickly adjusted
to the trimming.
Making a Pillow Cover Fit.
The cover of a sofa pillow can be
made to fit well by the following little
trick: After sewing up three sides
but before turning the cover right side
out, tack the two finished corners of
the case securely to two corners of
tho pillow. Turn the case over the
pillow. Sew up the fourth side for an
inch or two at each end. Tack these
two corners to the corresponding cor
ners of the cushion; Finish as usual.
This keeps the pillow from pulling
and sagging away from the cover.
Large Revera Popular.
The use of the large collar Is no
doubt responsible for the popularity
of the large revers. Some are long
and narrow, coming down below the
waist line. Others are square and a
few round.
In a certain number of cases the
coats are made with a single rever
on one side and double revers are
seen In some instances. Tho long

The writer speaks of the importance
pf the spring wheat crop of Weste.ra
Canada. He might also have spoken
of the Importance of the oat crop and
also'of the winter wheat crop, as well
aa barley. Winter wheat during the
past few years has been a great suc
cess, and experiments have shawn
that it can be grown with success In
almost any portion of the three prov
inces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta. Put apart from this, the
spring wheat crop is the one generally
grown, and all who know anything Cr
grain, anyone who has had anything
to do with markets, knows or has
heard of the high character of this
cereal and the splendid yields, that are
annually produced. Reproducing from
this article:
"In a land of such great sweep, and
of such difference in 6oil and climate,
there are many resources, but none
are at present of the same overwhelm
ing importance as the spring wheat
crop. In the Interminable prairie
stretches of the northwest province
it is the one absorbing topic of inter
est and cf conversation during Its
growing and its harvesting, for upon
its success or failure hangs the weal
or woe of a large part of the Domin
ion. Its influence extends far down
Into the United States, drawing thou
sands of farmers northwards with the
lure of cheap lands, but likewise be
yond the great lakes, even to the easy
going maritime provinces, calling the
flower oi their young men to its op
portunities. Development in these
prairie provinces goes on at high pres
sure for everything hangs on the out
come of spring wheat. Success has
emboldened the raisers of this one all
important crop, and each year there
Is further incursion Into those north
ern fields that only a short time ago
were regarded as Arctic wastes. The
Canadian Northwest seems to be onel;
of those modern agricultural, examples
set forth to drive the final nail in tbt
coffin of that ancient Malthuslan de- ,
luslon that population tends to outrun
the means of subsistence, since the
only fear now among Qfanadian econ
omists is as to the danger of over
stocking the wheat market. Only
about two and one-half per cent of
possible arable lands in the northwest
provinces is now under cultivation,
and this year the crop promises to
be close to 200,000,000 bushels, bo
that your imagination and your arith
metic can easily supply the answer as
to the possible or even probable out
come." During the months of July and Au
gust the weather was unfavourable
and the production of a 200 million
yield of wheat will not likely be real
ized, but even with this, the threshing
reports coming to hand show that thoi
crop will be a splendidly paying one!"
A Change of Opinion.

tician with tho telephone frank in hla.
