!'.. OflE OF REVOLTS (Marked by Unrest Involving the Entire World. REBELS" ALWAYS VICTORS Chinese and Mexieoo Revolutions and Strife Against Graft and Monop oly Great Strides Mpde U I Aviation. W'hn the historian of the future rec ords the events of the year 1911, he Mill lay particular stress on the poli tical and social unest throughout the rorld. This was not confined to any one country, nor to a few countries; It was world-wide. Involving practical ly every nation, both civilized and un civilized. It Included revolutions against long-standing governments, battles of labor and capital, wars be tween different nations and, in short, everything that could be branded as strife against existing condition, or growing conditions. Most significant of all the events of the year was the explosion in open rebellion of the hatred, that had been accumulating through the ages, of the Chinese against the despotic Manchu -dynasty. Passive, unresisting, yet at the name time loathing and despising tho power that held them in subject ion, the millions in the Far East em pire had for centuries submitted to liieing trodden on by unreasoning, over bearing, all-potent self-styled deml Rodf. Hut China was gradually awak ening and, when the first flames of revolution burst forth, it was the sig nal for the conflagration to become .general. , Rebels the Winners Everywhere. ' Hut the Chinese insurrection was but a larger edition of dozens, yea, encores, of upheavals of various kinds In other parts of the world. They broke forth with such suddenness that it was almost impossible to realize -what was occurring until the whole thing was over. Without exception, every one of the great disturbances of the year that reached an ultimate re sult, wound up In favor of the party or element rebelling against the con dition. In not one did the defense win OTer the offense. The Mexican revolution, near to our own doors, was a striking example of the overturn of regime. Nearer still was the successful culmination of the ' battle for statehood of Arizona and New Mexico. Other struggles of equal magnitude -developed during the year, many of them with sensational effect, in which the issue is still being fought. Among these are the battle between labor and capital, the "people" and monopoly, -and advocates of popular government as opposed to representative govern ment. Campaigns on graft have been waged with fierce resolution by city, state and federal authorities, not only In all corners of the United States, but abroad as well. The McNamara dynamiting case, the growth of sentiment for popular elec tion of all federal officials, the prog ress of the woman suffrage movement, trust prosecutions, the campaign for currency reform and that for lower tariffs all these typify the unrest that exists in our own country. Year's Important Events. Aiide from the numberless conflicts, many noteworthy things have been penned in the diary of 1911. Science las witnessed vast strides, particularly Jn tlie field of aviation. The flights of Atwcod from St. Louis to New York and of Itodgers from New York to Pas adena, Cal., were the crowning achievements in this line. About all 1hat remains to bo accomplished in av iation, as a feat, is the crossing of the ocean. When all that Is good and all that Is bad are considered together, it can not be said otherwise than that tho year was one in which the good pre dominated.

Again the Poor Fat Man. Among the passengers on a down town car the other evening were a fat man, a lean man, who proved to be deaf and a couple of giggly girls. On one of the side streets a German band was engaged In making life miserable for the residents of the neighborhood. The fat man shifted uneasily in his seat and remarked sarcastically to the lean man In a low tone, "Music!" The lean man put his hand to his ear and said, "Eh?" "Music," repeated the man in loud er tones. 'Beg pardon, I am not able to hear," said the lean man. ,"Muilc," yelled the fat man, so loud that the passengers all tittered and the little giggly girls all grew red In the face. "Oh," said the lean man as he turned around and looked about him. The little German band was out of sight by this time, and the passengers laughed Immoderately at the vain at teupts of the unfortunate man to tin! the object of the fat man's comments. Fat men are proverbially good ne tured, and by that time tho oddity of the situation had dawned upon tMs particular fat man. "Hum," he said, "you folks needn't laugh. Our friend saw fully as ro'ica music as you and I heard." Natural Timepiece. There is no need for clocks on the Aegean sea any day when the 6;n is shining.

Pretty, p T1 v :xv There is no end to the variety In shapes and styles designed for chil dren this season. Taking their cue from the liking for bonnets shown by grown-ups, designers have copied nearly all the shapes, modifying them more or less for little folks. This branch of millinery millinery for children has shown a wonderful de velopment in the past three years. This Is the result of specializing, on the part of designers and trimmers, who showed a marked talent for mak ing children's hats. The bonnet shown, made of alternat ing folds of beaver cloth and plaid vel vet, Is modeled on the Dutch cap, with the crown extended. It is dis tinctly childish.

The cost of dress, tho absurd lengths to which expenditure goes on. luxurious and sumptuous clothing, Is now pushed to such an extreme that a woman's fortune, like that of a sav age beauty, may often be seen on her person, and there is no margin left for entertaining, for all that makes social intercourse delightful. Three years ago It was said by a senator's wife that only the very rich could now give dinner parties at all, and that for modest fortunes enter taining in any form, except the mild dissipation of afternoon tea and cakes, was out of the question. What, it may be asked, is the use of all thlft amazing expenditure on finery, If the furs and trlnket3, the hats and robes are not to be exhibit ed on festive occasions to friends and admirers? A woman may be dressed to perfection from head to foot, but If no one is to see it, and sociability goes by the board In the effort to be beautiful, to what end has she made all this effort? The matter is grotesque, and why her men folk do not put a stop to it is food for wonder. You might as well, if you were a child, have a doll which Is attired In such costly and sumptuous fashion that you can never take It out of Its cupboard, nor afford to ask your littlo friends to tea to look at it. There is no doubt that in France, where the love of dress, originates, and where our woman first fall a vic tim to this fever for clothes, they worship to tho point of absurdity tho well-dressed woman. Tidy Blouses. Blouses made of thin fabrics often look untidy and unfinished at the back, owing to the difficulty in con cealing the sewing on of the hooks or buttons. A neat-way to do this is to stitch on a small box plait after the hooks have been sewed on, or the sewing which shows through can be covered over with lace, a band of em broidery or any suitable trimming. When it Is the placket hole that is hanging loosely, and, in the case of a fragile fabric, it seems likely to tear, sew a hook and eyo as far down each side as possible and press tho hook together to keep it from coming un fastened. This will hold the ends of the placket hole together nnd prevent any chance of their dragging and tear ing. Dye Hat Roses Artistically. Faded artificial flowers are well worth wearing if made to look like new by tho following plan: Buy a packet of one of the many cheap dyes !n tho desired shade. Prepare it and test It with white muslin to be sure it Is the right shade, and then, after jrushlng and shaking the flowers free from dust, dip the beads into the dye, ift out and rinse in cold water. Then, f they Are flowers with centers of a leeper shade, such as roses, mix a imall quantity of the dye In a thicker consistency, so that it is a few shades larker, and paint the middle petals 3nly very lightly with a paint brush lipped in this, after the first coating has dried. The stalks and leaves ibould be painted all over with cum. r w r v I k.

This littlo bonnet is comfortable, protecting the head from cold and has the additional virtue of being inex pensive. A little Napoleon shape made of plain velvet is faced with shirred chif fon at the front and trimmed with a rosette of this soft material placed at each side of the crown. The brim droops at the back over the hair. Thl3 is a beautiful and comfortable model upon which it would be hard to improve in any way. It is more dressy than the bonnet of plaid and cloth and may bo worn with or with out ties of chiffon. An elastic band fastens it to thtf head in either case. yIULIA BOTTOMLEY. BOOTS TO MATCH THE GOWN Costume and Footgear Must Be of the Same Material Shoes for Dancing. "How much do I require for a pair cf boots?" is the question which the smart woman may have to ask next time she la buying material for a new frock. A representative was informed at a leading house the other day that tho latest fashion from Paris decrees that costume and footgear must bo made of the same material. Thus a striped tweed "will neces sitate a pair of boots of the same tweed, and a blue serge will bo worn with blue serge boots. The representative was told that It "Wa3 usual to have the entire boot made of the dress material, but it was permissible to have tho fashion car ried out only in the uppers. "The boots are very comfortable to wear," it was stated, "and they make the feet look much smaller, as no prominence is given them when they aro clothed in the same material as the skirt. "In the matter of house and even ing shoes the rule is not stringent. Patent shoes are being worn a good deal, and so are satin laccd-trimmed shoes. "Gilt and silver kid -shoes will bo very popular for dancing." Chicago Inter Ocean. CHARMING PARTY FROCK Of orchid manve charmeuse.

My trou ble began In splotches breaking out right in the edge of my hair on the forehead, and spread over the front part of tho top of my head from car to ear, and over my ears which caused a most fearful burning itch, or eczema.

Itching Scalp Hair Fell OuL "I will say that I have been suffer ing with an itching on my scalp for tho past few years. My hair fell out in spots all over my head. My scalp started to trouble me with sores, then the sores healed . up, and crusts formed on the top. Then the hair fell out and left me three bald spots' the shape of a half dollar. I went to mora than ono doctor, but could not get an relief, so I started to use the Cuticura Ilemedie3. I tried one bar of Cuticura Scap and some Cuticura Ointment, nnd felt relieved right away. Now the bald spots have disappeared, and my hair has grown, thanks to the Cuti cura Soap and Ointment. I highly recommend the Cuticura Remedies to all that are suffering with scalp trou olc."
