THE SEMI.WFFKLY TRIBUNE NORTH PLATTE. NEBRASKA.
Heavy Wash Fabrics for Everyday Suits
Suits for llttlo boys under six, like
ihoso for Httlo girls, are made of wash
fabrics for both sunirticr and winter
Heavy linens and cottons in strong
weaves and In faat colors that stand
itrenuous wear and much tubbing, are
Used In the new suits for dally wear
which have just been brought out.
When the llttlo gentleman Is dressed
for a grand occasion ho wears velvet
and looks princely in It. The simple
tub suits for every day make It pos
sible to keep him refreshingly clean
In splto of the fact that the small
chap is usually oblivious to dirt and
has a faculty for gathering it.
Two of tho now models for llttlo
boys' suits are shown here. They
leave nothing to be desired in excel
lence of design, stylo or thoroughly
practical wearing qualities.
At the right a suit of linen rep Is
pictured with collar and belt in plain
brown. Smocking across the front of
the blouse gives it the requisite full
ness. Straps of tho white linen aro
stitched to the blouse and support a
aelt of tho brown linen fastening with
three bono buttons at the front. The
collar is a small sailor pattern in
brown linen but tho cuffs aro made
of the same linen as tho suit.
At the left a suit in tho same color
:ombInat!on is shown finished with
black buttons, and a black silk tie.
Tho belt is posed lower on the figure
than In tho other model and Is sup
ported by narrow straps of tho brown
iinon sewed on at each side. A pocket
with flap finished with two buttons is
i smart and practical item in the do
tal! of tho blouse. Tho small tie does
not extend around the neck. It Is
permanently tied and fastens with a
snap fastener under tho collar at the
right side. The black horn buttons
make an especially fine color touch
with the black tlo, in combination
with the white and brown of the suit.
Shoes with cloth tops are shown
with these suits. They are more dres
sy than noed bo for dally wear. Thoy
aro broad as to toe and have tho low
est of heels like tho shoes of plain
leather which are the sensible choice
for tho rough-and-tumble llttlo boy.
Victorian Sleeve Revived.
Another Victorian revival is tho
puffed sleovo coming midway between
shoulder and elbow. Thus far these
sleeves adorn only evening gowns, the
long sleovo to the wrist being used
on all bodices and blouses for day
wear. Low necked waists are filled
In at tho top with gathered tuckers
another dainty Victorian feature of
dress and tho dccolletago Is growing
round instead of V-shnpcd as the
season advances. Dimity and flowered
organdie find special favor and laven
der tho color of colors In domuro Vic
torian days Is particularly fashion
able. The hello of 1S20 veiled herself part
ly for coquetry and partly to protect
her complexion, for tan was consid
ered a disgrace thon, as rough, red
hands would be now. Over the quaint
poke bonnets of this summer will bo
thrown graceful veils In bordered and
vino patterns aud from tho tiny hat
floats a short, flaring voil such as tho
1830l belle affected.
Government Breeds Fine Horses for Army Mounts
WASH'NGTON. Tho result of tho government's experimental work in
Iiot'io breeding, begun in 1913, Is Interesting, Unllko forolgn govorn
monts, tho United States had mndo no experiments in tho scientific brooding
of horses for army uses, and it was
only an tho rcault of u recommenda
tion to congrcsn by a number of ex
perts who had Inspcctod forolgn studs
that an appropriation of $50,000 was
sot nBldo nnd tho work turned over
to tho department ot ngrlculturo,
which in turn delegated It to tho bu
reau of animal husbandry. Tho ob-
joct wns to produce dcslrnblo types
of cavalry remounts nnd artillery
Thoroughbred sires had boon pro
nounced most sorvlccablo by continental experts and tho project was under
taken along tho Bamo lines hero, though there was a deslro to try other light
horso types of stallion, and a few trotting, saddlo nnd Morgan sires woro
included in tho original Btud.
Tho war department had received a3 a donation the thoroughbred aires
Octagon by Rayon d'Or, dam Ortogal by Bend Or, and Henry of Navarro by
Knight of Ellorslle out of Moss Rose by Tho 111 Used, from August Belmont,
president of tho Jockey club, and theso woro turned over to tho dopnrtmont
Other thoroughbreds wore purchased and thcro are now at tho station at
Front Royal, Va., eighteen Biros, of which ton aro thoroughbreds, tho others
being trotters and saddle stallions.
Tho prepotency of tho thoroughbred, exports declare, makes him Idoal for
tho work in hand, and, as racing was in Its darkest days when tho work was
inaugurated, tho task of securing horses of quality was easy. Thoro was a
disposition from tho start to render tho government every asslstanco In a
work that 1b rogarded as socond to nono in economic importance.
With Russia's appropriation for horso breeding totaling moro than $4,000,-
000 for 1014, and tho czar adding moro than $1,000,000 In tho same porlod
from his prlvato purse, thcro was causo for faultfinding when tho appro
priation for tho work in tho United States during tho samo porlod was cut
from tho original $50,000 to $30,000. Now tho department has boon notlfiod
that It must carry on tho wcrk for tho coming twolvo months for $25,000, nnd
thoro is certain to bo an appeal to congress as soon as tho house convenes,

A fact concerning modern religious
activity, which seems to havo escaped
gcnornl remark, Is that Christians
know better how to play than over
bcrora. In tho normal times of re
cent years a visitor at ono of tho sum
mer conferences of tho Btudont Young
Men's Christian association, for in
stance, would bo surprised and de
lighted nt tho hearty good times which
tho delegates enjoyod. Christian En
deavor, too, has taught young people
how to play. Tho wholo conception
of recreation nnd Us placo in llfo has
received now attention of lato years.
Anybody who Is Booking for It may
find abundant evldonco that thcro Is
moro gcnulno happiness and Intelli
gent pleasure among Christians than
among tho followers of frivolity.

Among tho really new things that
have appeared on the millinery hori
zon for fall, the bead ornaments and
bead work which adorn many of tho
hats, are tho most novel. Also thoy
aro very handsome. Now that Amer
icans aro learning how to rely upon
themselves for artistry in creating
headwear, It seems specially appropri
ate that they should havo drawn an
Inspiration from tho original Ameri
cans tho red mon who havo used
beads always. And anyone who will
examine a collection of headwear or
other apparel, of many Indian tribes,
will dovelop a respect for the art of
Its makers and for their patient work.
Beads and needlowork aro tho now
touches appearing on tho two fall hats
shown here. The shapos aro wide
brimmed sailors, covered with velvet.
Tho hat at tho right Is in a strong,
bright shado of blue vclvot. About
tho crown a heavy silk floss appears
In parallel rows of oven stitches and
this decoration appears In four rows
at the odgo of tho upper brim. At
tho front many strands of whlto beads
aro knotted and fastened to tho top
crown. Tho strands terminate in
bead-covered balls fastened to tho
brim at each side.
Tho black velvet hat at tho left Ib
embroidered with a spider's web In
woolen yarn. This is spread over the
crown and part of the brim. A largo
and capable-looking lly Is held on the
web by a pin of which ho Is the head
Athough provided with Jowoled eyes
he seems to see no danger of becom
ing entangled, or If he docs he scorns
to heed it.
The story of bead ornaments is only
just begun and the Idea is a good ono;
therefore there Is every reason to be
lieve that wo Bhall see very interest
ing developments ot it as the fall sea
son advances. Among tho most attrac
tive of tho head ornaments shown so
far aro those of white and black beads
applied to tho body of tho hat In
geometrical figures. White predomi
nates in theso figures, and the dark
colors that are fashlonnblo for the
body of hats make the best of back
grounds for bead ombroldory.

"Snookums" Gets a Government Job at the Zoo
I T usually takes n civil ocrvlco examination to enter tho United States gov-
Jt ornmont's surveying corps, but such red tape did not trouble "Snookums."
Ho nonchalantly annexed himself to tho government surveying party at
Papago reservation, Arizona, and now
ho has obtained a permanent appoint
ment. Ho oven got free transportation
to Washington to tako his now job.
Now "Snookums" is on duty at
tho Zoo. Ho doesn't havo much to
do just walk up and down for visi
tors to look at, but a numbor of calls
already have been paid by govern
ment surveyors, for his fame had pre
Edward Anderson, Jr., son of Dr.
and Mrs. Edward Anderson of Rock-
vlllo, discovered "Snookums." His position not only found him, but thoso
who assigned him to It had an interesting timo spiriting him away from his
mother. Ho was found while Mr. Anderson and his associates woro survoy
ing near tho Mexican line, In Arlzonn.
Tho wildcats aro regarded a3 dangerous animals li that roglon, and
ovon after "Snookums" was taken to camp, It was feared his mothor might
track him by night and put up a light to rescue him. But tho rest of tho
family probably kept her homo.
Tho party bocamo attached to tho mascot, and, when tho work wns dono
it was decided that "Snookums" ought to remain In tho government service.
Superintendent Baker of tho Zoo hero wroto that ho would bo glad to provide
permanently for tho animal.
Mcantimo tho cat had become domesticated. Ho was friendly and Intel

Washington's City Market Proves Big Success
f HE effort to make Washington the experimental ground for tho dovolop-
SL mont of scientific methods of food distribution Is. In loss than a year's
timo, showing practical results that stand as a working modol for any city
whoso population wants to reduco tho
cost of living.
This is duo largely to tho offorts
of John II. Sherman, superintendent
of tho weights, measures and mar-
kots department of tho District of
Columbia, who has taught tho Iioubo
wives how to ollminnto tho middle
man by community buying.
A nucleus lor tho proposed mar
ket system already existed. Throo
municipal retail markets wero operat
ing with Indifferent success, Isolated
from tho sources of thoir supplies. Mr, Sherman persuaded congress to
appropriate $32,000 for steel shelters along Big- B and Llttlo B streets, rj. W.,
and thon obtained another appropriation $235,000 for a terminal market, to
no orocted on tho wharves, for tho wholesale distribution of fish and produco
from tho Potomac valloy.
Mr. Sherman's enthusiasm In his attempt to reduco tho living expenses
of. tho masses in tho city of Washington is not to bo confined to the District
of Columbia, but tho plan as outlined and partially materialized will stand
as a working,model for other cities whoso Infant donth rato and racial suicide
aro statistically known to Increase proportionately with tho cost of foodstuffs.
Washington feels that there Is a splendid purpose back of this oxporimont,
far-reaching in its various Individual phasos, which extend from tho hard
working farmer who jogs Into market long boforo dawn to tho worried
woman whoso household oxponses are such that thcro Is no chanco to lay
asldo enough for tho education of her children.
Putting Together Bones of Mastodon Is Puzzle
