The sailor hat made its entrance
Into the assemblages of early spring
millinery with a straight and narrow
brim and many novel oddities of trim
ming. So much enthusiasm was de
veloped for this trim little favorite In
headwear that many variations In Its
shape wero launched, and the public
soon showed a preference for the
wider brimmed kinds. It would be
hard to predict just where the limit
will bo set in width of brim, for al
ready big "cartwheel" sailors of black
taffeta have captivated the fancy of
women whose approval spells success
for any style that they adopt.
But sailors of a conservative width
of brim are, of all hats, the most sat
isfactory for summer wear. They fit
the head and shade the eyes. Little
variations in the size and shape and
height of crowns adapt this even
brimmed hat to different faces. Oddi
ties and novelties of trimming make
a new and attractive chapter In the
story of the Bailor.
Three examples of the most suc
cessful types are shown here. They
are representative and destined to
Corset Covers, Pretty
Two pretty and inexpensive under
bodices, or corset covers, are pictured
hero that wero selected from a great
number mado of similar materials, as
the best of their kind. One of them,
shown at the left of tho picture, is of
batiste, val lace and fine embroidery,
and the other is of crepe do chine and
shadow lace. Both utilize narrow lin
gerie ribbon in their make-up.
They are unusually Interesting Just
now because the underbodlce Is al
most as conspicuous as tho blouse of
sheerest cottons or of net, chiffon or
lace that is worn over it. The filmiest
of materials aro the ones most favored
for fancy blouses, and they are mostly
BemltranBparent, at their heaviest.
They merely veil the underbodlce,
which becomes, therefore, an Impor
tant Item of dress.
Tho bodice of batiste is made with
short, full sleeves. This Is an innova
tion that Is to bo recommended, be
causo these sleeves protect tho fragile
materials, of which blouses aro made.
They aro a help to the woman with too
Blender arms who aspires to wearing
tho thin blouse, and they improve tho
"set" of the blouse and Jacket on a
thin figure. This is cut very simply on
tho regulation corset-cover lines. A
band of very narrow beading, with an
edging of narrow val lace, finishes the
top, and a baby ribbon run through the
beading adjusts the bodlco to the
figure.
-A val insertion is lot In the bodlco
about the top and in a lattice pattern
on tho body and sleeves. The sleeves
aro finished at tho ower edge, with
this Insertion and u laoe edge to match.
The batiste is gathered in at tho shoul
der and also to tho band of insertion
which confines it at tho bottom of the
sleeve. A small pattern In embroidery
adorns the front of the bodlco at each
side of tho fastening, and a strip of
lace conceals small flat pearl buttons
and buttonholes, Like nearly all tho
new models, this bodlco hardly reaches
to the waist lino, and is finished there
with beading and lace and adjusted
with baby ribbon.
The bodice of crepe de chlno Is
uleovclesB and commends itself to tho
last out the season with an ever in
creasing following of admirers. For
the summer outing and for the tour
ist they provide the best of all round
hats.
The hat of mllan at the left of the
group, has a crown that rises toward
the left Bide nnd is rather small. It
is trimmed with a scarf of silk and a
feather rosette having a long, slender
quill thrust through it. At the right
the shape has a round crown trimmed
with a plain band having a fancy
edge. A very long curled quill Is
thrust through both band and crown
and sweeps across the front.
The third sailor 1b mado of hemp
and has a large! square crown. The
brim of hemp Is rather narrow, but a
second brim of crepe underlies it and
doubles its width. A plain band, cord
ed at each edge, lies lint against the
crown. A wide quill follows tho curve
ot the brim, on which it Is posed flat.
Two flat bows of ribbon, one near tho
front and one over the quill, carry out
tho severely tailored effect that Is In
keoplng with the shape.
and Easy to Make
plump woman, for it takes up no room.
It Is merely a band of shadow laco to
which a tucked strip of the silk is
sewed. Two shorter strips of lace form
broad shoulder straps, and baby ribbon
run through tho edges of the lace, ty
ing at the front and on the shoulder,
contrives to nmnago the fit and fasten
ing. An elastic band is run through
tho lower edge in a narrow hem and
confines tho waist, fastening with
button and buttonhole.

Blouse Importance.
Smart blouses play a much more (m
portant part In the wardrobe than
many women realize. A high price is
often willingly paid for a tailored suit
or dress, which io worn with an evi
dently machine mude, inexpensive
blouse. Such a blouse Is entirely out
of keoplng with a good costume. Pro
portionately, blouses do seem expen
sive, but when It is considered that
they aro what first meets tho eyo
when tho coat is removed, it Is real
ized that they should be excellent of
their kind.
Tho woman who can direct a seam
stress or who sows herself, can mako
charming tailored as well as chiffon
blouses for less than half what they
cost In tho shops. Voguo.
Clever Economies.
Prominent among the many econo
mies practiced at tho moment aro
clover little waistcoat effects. Many a
last year's coat and bodlco are being
brought up to date by a series of cap
lly adjusted waistcoats, which usually
conclude In some sort of a distinctive
collar. Given the simplest, plainest
coat or corsage In fact, tho plainer
tho hotter a chic noto Is at once In
troduced through one or tho other of'
these attractive little adjuncts. A
cross-over waistcoat of striped roman
silk was Introduced In a last year'o
navy ratine coat, tho roll-over collar
at tho back fringed with monkey fur,
additions that served to Invest a some
what de mode suit with a quite par
ticular cachet.
Gerlng. A mass meting of land
owners under tho Fort Laramlo unit
of tho Pathfinder canal project
held hero recently, uttendud by near
ly 500, Is regarded as bringing tho
commonceont or this $5,000,000 enter
prise within sight. Numerous addi
tional land owners have pledged
their lands and tho total area now
signed In Nebrasnk foots up over 22,
000 acres out of a necessary 2G.000
acres. Tho Wyoming area Is already
secured. This canal will add 107,000
acres to tho Irrigated section of tho
North Platte valley, all of which is
on tho south sldo of tho river, and
means railroad extensions, moro
sugar factories and homes for treblo
the present population. Judge Will It.
King, chief counsel, nnd It, H. Hoi
gate, assistant counsel of tho recla
mation sorvlco, and other notables
took part In the program, which Is
regarded as having been entirely suc
cessful In tho point of Influencing tho
signatures yet necessary to securo
starting of the work by the govern
ment this summer. An appropriation
of $150,000 Is available for expendi
ture prior to July 1 and another ap
propriation of 1300,000 is avallablo
for fiscal year then beginning. Great,
enthusiasm prevails over tho roseate
prospect for tho Immediate future.
Packers rilt by New Law.
South Omaha, A new law passed
by the last legislature, effective July
8, making It unlawful for any person
to "sell the flesh of a diseased ani
mal," is liable to jolt the South
Omaha packers considerably. Tho
bill was Intended to prevent tho sale
of diseased meat In small towns
where there Is no federal Inspection,
and carries a heavy penalty of $100
to $1,000 line or six months to five
years in tho penitentiary. Tho pack
ers In many caseB use meat from tu
berculosls cattle, when the dlseaso Is
localized. Tho slaughtering is done
under government Inspection and all
meat unfit for consumption, rejected,

Think Bradya Were Brothers.
Hastings. Taking photographs ot
tho names of Brady found In tho re
gistry of tho Victoria hotel as part
of tho evidence In the John O'Connor
will case, and sending tho photo
graph to the attorney general of tho
state, Is tho first formal action toward
showing the possibility of John Brady
or John O'Connor of Hastings being
a brother of James Brady, tho Omaha
man, who died last week under con'
ditions similar to the death of the
Hastings man. Tho hotel register was
submitted Into tho evidence to show
that O'Connor registered at the hotel
at the same time that John Cullvan
did.

State Taking Interest In O'Connor.
Hastings Assistant Deputy Attor-
npy General Barrett was In Hastings
recently, seeking Information to on
nblo tho state to bring numerous
phases of tho O'Connor estate matter
to tho attention of tho grand Jury
hero May 10. Numerous rumors to
the effect that O'Connor did not die
from natural causes haB led, tho at-
torney general to decide to thorough
ly question everyone who waa with
the recluse during the Inst twenty-
lour hours of his llfo.
Typhus is making horrible rnvnges
as woll. Tho death rate Is frightful,
