fi of costumo, worn at the Chantilly
races, Is pictured at the left of he
snapshot photograph which appears
here. It Is In black satin with tho
longest of white lace tunics over It
and a blnck satin coat. With the
ame color combination, used In re
verso order, Is a costume of white
eatin with overdrapo of black lace,
at the right of the picture.
A throng of people attend these
meets-for tho solo purpose of staging
costumes in the most effective of set
tings. These people demonstrate the
modes and launch new styles. They
form the centers of attraction for that
greater throng that is in attendance
or the purpose of looking at them.
Tho handsome costume which
caused so many modistes to take no
tice and so many artists to level cam
eras or ply pencils, is chiefly remark
able for the oddity of the lace of
which the tunic is made. Patterned
after an old idea, modern lace, show
fng figures on a net ground, was used
for this tunic. Cut the figures are
distinctly up to date, showing girlo in
sweeping draperies and graceful out
lines encircling the tunic near tho bot
tom. Tho figures and draperies are
Cloverly outlined with run-in threads
and they, with the garlands of flowers
and other figures, are brought out In a
Cameo-liko relief by tho underskirt of
Coming Changes in
HAT brims are growing wider and
modistes forotell a vogue for large
hats, to begin with the fall season.
Large hats and small, simple colffuros
do not harmonizo, and already the
light puff for filling out the coiffure
has made its appearance. We have
also to consider small hair rolls or
pads for supporting tho hair, and
coiffures nro quite generally dressed
in waves. Theso are tho wavelets
that aro breaking upon a new shore
lino in hairdressing, speaking figura
tively; they aro foretelling a rising
tldo of favor for moro display in tho
management of tho hair. Tho coiffure
shown hero pictures tho hair parted
at ono sido and waved In smooth, reg
ular undulations. Thero is a short
lock at tho front arranged In a light
curl. Somo of tho new styles show
two very precise ringlots, one on eacli
sido of a middle part For this stylo
the hair is nlso waved, but moro loose

Long, light puffs help out In build

Tho coat is not allowed to dlstraet
the attention from this clever posing
of odd lace. It Is entirely plain, but
quite original In cut. Tho hat Is of
black satin with two extravagantly
long Numidl feathers sweeping be
yond the brim edge.
Tho attention of the seeker fpr new
styles having beon seized by this
novel gown, he notes Its details to
find new features worth remember
ing. First, its simplicity; then the
extra length of tunic and width of pet
ticoat; and most noticeable, tho wide
hat brim, which is a radical now do
It is not often that anything so
striking Is at the same time so ele
gant. Tho combination of black and
whito makes this possible.
Tho second gown is hardly less
noteworthy and only a shade less orig
inal. The tunic Is of black net, hav
ing an insert of lace wrought In and
a border of very wide velvet ribbon
above tho hem. It is set on to tho
bodice of black net by a band of black
velvet. Tho long sleeves are of net
and lace in black There is that orig
inal touch which moans everything in
the really gorgeous embroidery in
white figures which ornaments tho net
Tho white feather turban worn with
this costume is a prominent feature In

tho face is liked by tho younger
women. Only a few curls about tho
face rcliovo tho plainness of this stylo,
but a mass of hair piled on top of tho
head makes a piquant arrangement
suited to youthful faces
Puffs and short curls are becoming
to everyone and look as well on grand
mama as on her daughter and daugh

cessful when made soparatoly and
pinned on, for they can bo -jasjly
dressed and placed wherever reeded.
There is np very good reason why
one should not borrow tho charm that
belongs to thoin unless a prejudice
against wearing separate pieces of
hair can bo construed as reasonable.

PLEA FOR WIDER ROADWAYS
Fourteen-Foot Road Will Outlast Three
Nine-Foot Roads and Is Much
Better In Every Way.
Have not our counties and townships
boon wasting a good bit of our money
by building 9-foot roadbeds on 24 by
20 foot wldo road grades? A 24-foot
wide grade la plonty wido enough for
a 14-foot roadbed. Then why spoil
a good grade by putting on a 9-foot
road when It costs loss than one-third
moro to make a pood job of It? Foui
teen feet Is sufficient width for two
tracks, that would mean just one
half of tho wear on tho road, Then
'wo can rtrho so as to have a wheel on
each side of tho center and that makes
ono moro track and will bo equal to
a. 9-foot road. So you seo we havo
three times the wearing surface on a
1 1-foot roadbed that wo do on u 9-foot.
Then we havo a chance to pass other
rigs without ono or both going into
the ditch. Now this is claiming qulto
a lot for one-third moro expense, but I
think n 14-foot road will outlast threo
D-foot roads, has a handler surface and
Ib better in every way, writes John D.
De Cou In Michigan Farmer. If you
como up behind a rig you have a
chance to get by. if you nro driving
an auto you do not havo to go outsldo
of the hard roadbed nnd tnko -chances
on skidding Into the ditch.
A 9-foot roadbed has but ono track.
Where tho wheels run It gets packed
perfectly solid and a heavy load will
crush all small stones into dust, and
tho first auto that comes along sucks
It up on tho front side of tho wheels
and then blows It clear off tho track
when they let go. This doesn't seem
much, but when from one to fifty or
more go over tho samo track It soon
counts. Meanwhile, tho horses travel
ing in the center with iron-shod hoofs
havo kept that dug loose and It gradu
ally works outf leaving tho road low
In tho center whero It should bo high.
Then when heavy rains como tho
ridges where tho wheel tracks como
hold It in ruul it washes down tho cen
ter to the lowoBt level, where It runs
off at the sidps, cutting ditches nnd
causing a bad chuck hole.
This road Is hard to keep in repair.
If you uso a road grador or drag to
scrapo the sides to tho center tho
.wheel tracks are so solid that they
will hold up the blades and you wil
do but little if any good. It you haui

on more gravel it will not pack In the
center, but keep working Into the
wheel trackB, making them still higher,
when thoy are too high already It
our roads weio 14 feet or moro In
width, then tho driving would bo all
oer tho whole load, making a hard,
smooth sui faco, and by going over
once in a while with a road drag It
would keep the renter high, tho ruins
would drain off at the sides and not
wabh down tho center, and tuero
would not bo wear enough in any ono
place to work or crush the surface into
duBt to be blown off by winds or autos.
You can iepnir a 11-foot rond nt any
time, and it will pack and muko n
smooth, hard burfaco, for people will
drive so as to hit tho whole purfaco.
But not bo with a 9-foot road. They
will all follow tho samo track, no mat
ter how crooked tho first pat'ern is
It will bo better to build 14 feot or
widor In tho first place, than to build
nine foot and then wider afterward,
for it Is hard to get a smooth, won
surface, because tho now gravel will
work off tho old, hard surface, causing
a &ag on each side which will have to
bo filled several times before it will
get solid enough to match tho old
