Tailored Costume Has Won Approval
AND THE PACIFIC COAST
1nr) , n.
Covert cloths, shepherd's-checked
and striped suitings scorn to bo divid
ing honors in tailored suits for spring.
It is hard to say which is most fa
vored. AH of them nro doveloped in
many smartly cut and perfectly tail
ored plain suits that are far and away
the most elegant of all street drosses.
Somo of the new models' are what
may bo called severely plain, allowing
themselves only machine stitching
and buttons by way of garniture and
finishing touches. Buttons this sea
son aro made of the fabric of the gar
ment in many elegant suits, but in
unusual shapes. In an equal number
of designs they are selected from the
varlouB composition, bono or pearl de
signs. But severe lines and finishing
do not characterize all the new spring
The coat-suit shown in the picture
belongs to tho plain well-tailored class
that should be found in every woman's
wardrobe. It is just right for .the busi
ness woman, tho traveler, or for street
wear where ono finds need for only
ono new tailored costume.
Tho skirt is cut with wide over
lapped side scams forming a sloping
panel down the front. It is cut with a
sufficient flare and is ankle-length. In
many of these skirts tho waist lino is
high, and Buspender tops and pockets
at tho sides give them an air of util
ity that is very snappy and smart.
Tho coat in this suit follows tho
lines of tho figure rather moro close
ly than is the rule in spring styles.
It has a panel back and plain coat
sleeves finished with a band nnd two
buttons at tho wrist. At each side -of
the front an applied strap, pointed at
tho end and decorated with a button
and simulated buttonhole, suggests a
NTho suit is worn with a soft silk
waist having a square turn-over collar
at tho back. This has a "V"-shaped
opening at thp front showing a dainty
collar and vestco of lace or net worn
under it. Cloth-top shoes and a pretty
hemp hat with trimming of ribbon and
cherries complete a spring costume
that merits no criticism.
Revealing Charm of Classic Coiffure
flow Income Tax Law Hits Members of Congress
RJT ASHINOTON. There isn't tho slightest doubt that If tho last congrosf
W had it all to do over again it would nail fast a provision to tho income
x law allowing senators nnd representatives to deduct tholr election ox
ponses from their Incomo in making
up their incomo tax returns. Mem
hers of congress havo awakened tc
the fact that thoy miut allow tho ser-genntsat-arms
of both housos to de
duct tho Incomo tax in advance from
congressional j?ajarics without taking
campaign oxponses Into consideration
Thus thero nro Bovoral congressmen

' Tho Incomo tnx division of tho in
tornnl revenue bureau will not give help; It has ruled that campaign expenses
aro personal, nnd aro, therefore, returnable as a part of not incomo nnd sub
ject to tho tnx.
This decision, it is said at tho treasury, might bo altered if congressmen
appealed to tho secretary of tho treasury and could show a basis for an Inter
pretation of tho law moro favorable to their desires and pockotbooks.
Congressmen, It Is explained, havo hesitated to tako thlB course for two
reasons; first, because such an argument has been difficult to invent, and
second, because It might prove embarrassing to nny congressman adopting
such a course. Tho treasury department officials hint that n decision fa
vorablo to congressmen might also put tho secretary of tho treasury In n bad
It remains now for somo congressman bolder than his fellows to Intro
duce an amendment to the incomo tnx law allowing campaign expenses to be
deducted from net congressional Incomes. In tho house, it is learned, those
responsible for tho incomo tax law havo steadily opposed any such chntiKo.
"In reply to your verbal inquiry," says tho nearly stereotyped reply ol
uio income tax division to tno many applicants for information, "you are
advised that tho expenses Incurred by a member of congress In conducting
a campaign for re-election aro regarded by this ofllco as purely porsonnl in
character, and, therefore, not deductablo in a return of your incomo under
,tho provisions of tho Incomo tax law."
Tho treasury will not divulgo tho names of tho thrifty legislators who
have telephoned nnd written lettors on this subject, but it is a matter of wide
comment and gossip at tho capltol; so tho treasury ruling hnB been Bprcad
about from ono congressman to another.

English Sparrows Are Still Considered Aliens
N the recent bird census conducted under the supervision nnd inspiration
of tho department of agriculture with tho aid of bird lovers and en
thusiasts throughout the United Slates no consideration was paid to that
bird which In popular parlance Is
called the English Bpnrrow. It might
seem that enough generations of this
bird have como into being nnd have
passed away in the United States to
havo it looked upon as naturalized,
but still people interested .in birds
continue to lcjok upon this species of
the sparrow ns aliens. In tho census
enumeration tho numerous sparrows
marked as native species were taken
Into account. It may bo that ono
reason for tho evident slight to tho
English sparrow was bocauso of tho difficulty of making a census of him and
her or them.
The ostlmato reached by tho department of agrlculturo was that our
native field bird population is something over two billions, oxclusivo of spar
rows, or about ono thousand to the squaro mile of land not planted to crops.
The most numerous of these birds were tho robins, estimated ns averaging
fifty pairs to tho squaro milo east of tho Mississippi river. Tho highest
average of field birds, seven pairs to tho acre, was reported In tho suburban
area of tho District of Columbia, and tho lowest estimate was ono pair for
every three acres In Montana, tho forest birds being much less numeroua
than the birds which dwell in open lands.
Tho history of tho English sparrow in Washington goes back to 1872, In
which year, undor tho supervision of Col. O. E. Babcock, In chargo of public
buildings and grounds, about ono hundred pairs of thcso birds were pur
chased and set freo in the parks of Washington.
ME OUT OF
A coiffure which is beautiful from
tiny point of yIgw is not mot with ev
ery day. Hero Is one which 1b oxquis
ito from whatever side you look upon
it. It convinces ono that there is
nothing quite so pretty as curls, and
should provo that tho classic lines,
which it follows closely, have never
been Improved upon.
Tho hair for this coiffure Is waved
and parted at tho loft sldo. Tho short
hair about tho forehead and temples
is curled Into very short ringlets. Tho
back hair is brought to tho top of tho
crown and colled In a looso soft coll.
Tho waved front hair la brought back
to tho coll nnd pinned to It, leaving
tho ends free. Theso ends nro sepa
rated into strands and curled in short
tight curls. Thoy nro pinned closo
to tho head about tho coll. Finally
a narrow band of silk or velvet rib
bon is fastened about the head to sup
port tho waved hair and keep tho ring
lots nbout tho face in place.
Hut one's hair must bo naturally
curly In order to make successfully
tho short ringlets about the coll. Also
thero must bo no ond of tlmo to give
to halrdresslng. When neither of
thcBo requisites Is present, plnned-ln
curls aro to be used. They savo tlmo
and stay in curl better than tho natur
al hair. Thoy may bo bought In any
length needed and aro always ready.
Even ono who cherishes a projudlco
against acquired hair will forgive Its
uso when it is impossible to detect It
and when n coiffure io as adorably
