Up-to-Date Tailored Gown of Serge I
" ..I --- '
A street suit, cut on conservative
ines, which manages to bo up to tho
minute In its stylo, deserves more
than, a passing glance. Tho attrac
tive' suit shown here accomplishes
these things and compels attention be
cause of Us excellence. There is ev
ery reason for buying good material
In suits that must stand much wear,
and every reason to expect them to
outlast a single season and como In
bandy for "knockabout" wear a sec
In tho suit pictured, made of serge,
Iho skirt is moderately wide with tho
fullness laid In broad plaits at each
aide. It is a little longer than ankle
length and finished with a three-inch
hem. It is cut with a high waist line,
to be worn without a belt, and is fitted
about tho hips.
Tho jacket js cut with straight lines
liko a box coat and is confined in a
high waist line by a narrow belt of
the material. The front shows a small
cutaway with a little "V'-shaped vest
et in, having Its point at tho bust
line. There are no rovers, but the
aeck is finished with a collar of silk,
wired to roll gracefully.
Tho belt fastens with a plain metal
buckle and 1b cut at the front to sim
ulate two Ilttlo pockets with flap fas
tening. These are finished with a
small metal button. Three of tho
same kind of buttons finish tho narrow
turned-back cuffs that are outlined
with a piping of the serge.
When tho material for a suit ofthls
kind is bought It is a good idea to buy
an extra yard, so that when the time
for altering or remodeling comes this
will be available for changes In stylo
and the replacing of cuffs, collar or
'Worn with this comfortable street
suit are equally comfortable and smart
low shoes over which tan-colored spats
appear. In summer weather these
are left off. The strictly tailored
sailor hat with black crown and sand
colored brim is trimmed with cnbo
chon of barnyard straw set over flat
loops of ribbon.,
When a tio or ribbon becomes
wrinkled or creased it may in a min
ute bo made as smooth and as fresh
as new by slightly dampening the
wrinkled spot and then wrapping the

Bonnetlike Hats Popular for Children
Although so great a variety 'of
shapes has been designed for children,
thoso that suggest the bonnet have
outdistanced all others in point of
popularity. Dut Ilttlo variations In
shapo, and clover new ideas In trim
ming, savo theso pretty and childish
bits of headwear from becoming mo
notonous. Two of tho best Ideas In trimming
are shown in the picture given hero.
In the bonnet at the left, the crown
is sloping, higher at the front, and
the brim curves up both at tho back
and front, suggesting tho poke bonnet
of blessed memory. It Is trimmed
with white ribbon having a plcot edgo
In covlor and buds made of satin, with
long stems trimmed In a wreath ef
fect about tho hat. A bow of the rib
bon Is posed at the front and tucked
Hat to the crown.
The shape at tho right Is a famil
iar "miiBhroom" model of hemp braid
pressed with ridges qyer tho crown,
extending from front to back and
from side to side. These are placed
In the shapo by way of variety and
add nothing to its attraction.
Daisies, Juno roses and forget-me-nots
form a wreath for trimming, and
behind oach daisy a length of ribbon
in brown or some other dark color is
folded and sowed to tho lint, resting
both on tho crown and brim.
These shapes come in all colors and
are held to tho head with elastic cord
which is concealed by the hair.
Many of the prettiest hats for' mid
summer wear have been made of
point d'esprit or plain not shirred
over wire frames. Others are of net
draped over light-colored silk, and fine
swiss embroidery is used in tho samo
way. Frills of lace or not made of
flnor side plaltlngs form the brims and
fall prettily about the face.
Grapes Are Chic
As usual in tho spring of tho year,
tho fruit of tho vino appeals to fash
Ion. Grapes nro immensely chic, not
only on spring millinery, but in the
form of corsage ornaments on cv'o
nlng gowns. A lovely Ilttlo. danco
frock of whlto tullo over sliver green
pussy willow silk has bunches of pale,
translucent grapes on tho shoulders,
and nt tho girdle. Very smart, on tho
other hand, is n spring turban of black
mllan trimmed with black and green
grapes and black velvet loaves. With
UiIb hat 1b worn an entirely new veil
of sheer black mesh appllqued with
green and bronze velvet leaves. The
pattern is so delicately applied, ar.d

An Appeal to
!Dr REV. HOWARD W.POPE
SupCTUtradcul of Mca, Moody Bills Int&ut S
TUXT-Study to show thyself approved
unto God. II Timothy 2:15.
Mr. Glndstono was once asked what
was tho leading question in England at
that tlmo. Ho, re
plied that thcrd
was but one lead
ing question at
that time, or at
any tlmo, and that
was the question
of ono's relation
to tho Lord Jesus
Christ. Ho. then
went on to say
that tho brainiest
men woro thoso
who paid most at
tention to this
subject. "1 have
nil tho men who
have boen prominent in England dur
ing the last fifty years, In business,
politics, or literature, and of tho sixty
most prominont men, fifty-four have
been professing Christians."
If Mr. Gladstono was right, and it
tho question of oiio'b relation to
Christ is tho leading question which
confronts a student, it is very impor
tant that ho settle It early. Indeed this
question lies at the basis of all educa
tion. What is the real object of edu
cation? It 1b to Increuse ono's ca
pacity to know God, and to make him
known to others. This Is what educa
tion Is for, what life is for. "And this
is life eternal that they should know
theo tho only truo God, and Jesus
Christ whom thou hast sent" (John
I. Tho keenest delight of which Svo
aro capable comes to us from know
ing God. When tho dovout astrono
mer Kepler made his great discovery,
ho exclaimed, "O God, I think thy
thoughts after thee." There Is no
greater Joy than this, unless It be that
of seeing God's character reproduced
In our lives. If this be true, then edu
cation is not optional with us, but
Imperative. We are bound to cultivate
every talent which wo possess, bo
cause each Is an avenuo .through
which God can reveal himself to us.
Wo aro bound to open every window

II. Tho superior advantages which
students enjoy make it doubly impor
tant that they should becomo ac
quainted early with the Lord Jesus.
Education enlarges ono's cnpaclty to
see and foresee, to dond to undo. It
multiplies his influence, and thus .in
creases his responsibility, sinco tho
welfare of others depends upon his
action and attitude. No educated per
son can possibly live a Chrlstless life
without leading others to do tho samo.
This consideration should have great
weight. A professor in a largo mili
tary school recently told tho writer
that it was the thought of his influ
ence with tho boys which led him to
decide for God and put himself on rec
ord aB a Christian.
III. Again, tho peculiar temptations
which confront a student make an ac
quaintance with Jesus indispensable.
Among theso may bo mentioned: '
(a) Tho freedom from homo re
straint. Tho Btrong, steadying hand
of tho father and the indescribable In
fluence of tho mother is lacking. Thoro
Is no younger brother or sister to bo
considered, not even tho restraining
influence of someone else's sister.
Tho consequence Is that ono grows
selfish and comes to think that all tho
world was made for him.
(b) Tho petty vices which prevail
so commonly among students. By tho
side of tho writer in college sat tho
valedictorian of the oloss. He was
a well-disposed man, but he had no
religious principles. When othrs
drank ho was not strong enough to
refuse. After graduation he studied
law and became ono of tho most bril
liant and promising lawyers in the
state. Temptations npw grew stronger
and moro frequent, and having no ac
quaintance with him "who is nble to
savo to tho uttermost," and "able to
keep you from falling," he soon loBt
his standing and business, and died
a common drunkard.
(c) Not the least of the dangers
which confront a student is tho temp
tation to doubt. Ho lives in an atmos
phere of inquiry and criticism. Old
theories arp being laid aside and now
facts aro constantly being discovered.
Possibly he sees somo of his instruc
tors, for whose ability ho has tho high
est respect, utterly Indifferent to tho
claims of tho Gospel. Llternturo is
full of covert sneers at religion. He is
Just at tho ago when his critical facul
ties nro being developed, and ho ho
gins to question everything which ho
once believed. Add to this tho nntural
willingness of tho heart to havo it bo,
and you havo a combination of cir
cumstances,, calculated to shako tho
strongest faith. Some, Indeed, think
It a sign of superior Intellect to doubt,
but thlB is a mistuko. It Is sometimes
a sign of spiritual blindness, and often
of moral obliquity. A largo part of
the skepticism of students la of Iho
heart rather than of the head,

Pure Food Expert
Before Grape-Nuts was included in the Pure Food Directory of the New York
Globe, the publishers sent their expert, Alfred W.JVlcCann, to get the facts about this
famous cereal food what it is made of, how it is made, and whether or not too much
had been claimed for it.
The makers have always held that Grape-Nuts is a body and brain building
food; that it contains the vital mineral elements lacking in white flour, and foods made
from white flour; that it digests more readily than any other prepared cereal food, etc-
McCann came to Battle Creek at the Globe's expense. He investigated had
the run of the factory up-stairs, down-stairs and all over the place.
In the N. Y. Globe of April 1, 1915, he said: '
"Any man who can go to Battle Creek and come away
with the statement that he is not amazed is given to the habit
of bearing false witness against his neighbor.
"I watched the delivery of the wheat to the Grape-Nuts
bakery. ,It was selected wheat too. I watched the mills
grind this wheat, and there was no patent flour stunt pulled
off in grinding it, either. The wheat went right through the
rolls and came out as honest and as unrefined as when it went
in. I saw this wheat mixed with barley malt in a mixing room
"that is a model of cleanliness.
"Grape-Nuts is an honest, genuine, wholesome, good, fool-
proof breakfast food,
"Grape-Nuts is all Post ever claimed for it. Instead of
over-estimating the truth he didn't tell ten percent of it."
There you have it! If you want to know more, write Alfred W. McCann, care

This wonderful food DOES build body, brain and nerve tissue. It DOES
furnish the vital mineral phosphates usually lacking in the daily dietary. It is easily
digestible, economical, and comes ready to eat, fresh and delicious.
