A story is being told which sheds an
Interesting light on the marvelous
foresight and precaution that charac
terized the preparations of tho Japan
ese for the present war. Sutne years
ago a Japanese agent came to Phila
delphia with a letter of introduction
to a prominent Philadelphia!! who had
traveled In Japan. This l'hiiadelphian
tells the story.
The letter was written by a Japan
ese official who knew the Fhlladel-
phlan. and it stated that if ho would
help the bearer in what he desired the
favor would be greatly appreciated.
Tho favor was for the Thlladelphlan
to simply Introduce the agent to a
first-clasu firm of detectives. This
was done and the agent described as
a responsible person. Ho had plenty
of money, and a bargain was mado
with the firm, the latter to receive a
large sum of money. .
The detectives were required to
dress In the clothes of laborers and
secure work In Cramp's shipyard and
then to gather full Information about
the Russian battleship Varlag, then
In early course of construction. This
they did, and the Japanese govern
ment was supplied with every detail
of the construction and armament of
the Varlag. The officials at Cramps
do not yet know exactly how the Japs

years four months old goes through
tho "Xame-of-God." or Bismillah, cere.

Is dressed In clothof-gold, with a veil

invited to salute the little queen. She
sits on a gold cushion, which must be
borrowed if she hasn't one, and all
the rest sit on the floor. Then an old

verse from the Koran, which is also
written in saffron on a silver plate

fingers over the words, and stammers
them after him. "Say it not, Hibi; be

Paper Gloves and Stockings.
roper gloves and stockings are now
being manufactured in Europe. The
stockings have her-n carefully ex-
nmlned by experts, nnd they are loud
In their praise of them. Lot no one
assume, they say, that these stockings,
because they ore made of paper, will
only last a few days, for they will last
almost os long as ordinary stockings.
The reason Is because the paper of
which they are made was, during the
process of manufacture, rendered Into
a substance closely resembling wool,
nnd was then woven and treated as
ordinary wool.

Walking Suits.
There is nothing smarter for a walk
ing or traveling suit than black and
white shepherd's tartan. It does not
show wear or dust, and'always looks
trim and neat.
This little suit Is made with a full
plaited skirt that clears the ground by
several Inches. It Is laid In deep
plaits that aro stitched down a little
way from the waist. It is finished at
Ut bottom with a deep hem.
f jacket is a short box coat, with
rtlar and cuffs of white broadcloth
strapped with half inch wide bauds of
b!ck velvet ribbon.
There are three pockets on the coat
piped around with black velvet, and
the flaps decorated with cloth covered
buttons. Tho ones which fasten the
coat are very large, and have black
velvet ribbon on them In a cross de
sign. The jaunty air of this costume
Is very striking, and it would be a use
ful suit to any one.
Pretty Weddings.
Color effect Is greatly studied nowa
days at wedding ceremonies, and the
result is often delightful. Hed nnd
white weddings have been much In
vogue during the dull winter months,
with desirable result, and the little
pages with brlght hued cloaks slung
over the shoulder, or tiny bride

and muslin aprons, scattering pink
and red roses, have lent a charming

Considering the number of fashion
able weddings which have taken place
recently, tho variety introduced Into
the functions has been little short of
surprising. One of the prettiest re
sults was achieved at a recent cere
mony, when the snowy-gowned bride
was accompanied by a train of brides
maids attired In every shade of pink,
ranging from the most delicate wild
rose tone to that of the deepest crim

Handsome Street Gown.
A handsome street gown Is of
mauve cloth. A hip yoke formed of
stitched bands of cloth fits snugly and
fastens with gold buttons a triflo to
tho loft. The bodice is fashioned
after tho same idea, the stitched
straps giving n short Jacket effect,
closing on the side to correspond with
skirt decoration. The sleeves are
similarly treated and the larpe, loose
puff which falls from elbow Is at
tached to a narrow cuff. Tho collar Is
also mode of stitched straps and ridd
en brown satin, the loiter being used
for tho deep girdle and scarf, which Is
finished with brown silk fringe.
Blouse Problems.
Tho difficulties of the blouse prob

Ing tho trimming of tho waist with
lace bertha, chiffon fichu, or different
artificial flowers, makes the gown look

Wonderful Handwork.
In a convent the patient sisters sat
stitching upon a waist of delicate blue
linen. The pattern upon which they
w ere working was ono designed by an
artistic sister. It showed a great spl
derweb of blub silk. In which a large
gray spider was, struggling. The spider
was round and fat and was made en
tirely of embroidery threads. The w eb
was repeated In smaller slzo upon the
cuffs and upon the stock. To wear
with this there was a very pretty Eton
made of lace with a deep collar bound
in silk, the whole falling open In front
to display the delicately woven web.
Roses for Hat Trimmings.
"A good ostrich fall makes a good
flower spring" Is an old saying with
milliners, and the spring of 1904 will
bear out the truth of this statement.
Hoses promise to take tho lend. The
tiny button variety. In single and dou
ble garlands, edge the brims, encircle
tho crowns or otherwise trim the hats.
Medium size roses are used as garni
ture in single or doublo wreaths, and
largo roses are often used Blngly.
When tho large flower Is employed
tiny green leaves bordering the brlni9
make a charming effect.
Fadg In Neckwear.
The fad of the season In neckwear
will be to havo the stock and a prt
of tho dress below It of transparent
laco. Round yokes and lower fitted
sleeves of lingerie will be much worn
with spring nnd summer gowns and
tho fashion i as pretty as it Is sen
sible. The upper part of the neck and
the lower part of tho sleeves show
wear easiest, and when these can be
removed and laundered frequently tho
gown may be kept fresh nnd new look
ing for an entire season.
Dainty Maid's Stocks.
A pretty device for keeping tho
twentieth century girl's white stocks
and starched collars immaculate when
not encircling her fair throat Is made
of a round basket. Line with silk: of
delicate hue, with an Interlining of
wadding, sprinkled with sachet pow
der. A circular piece of pasteboard
covered and wadded serve for a lid,
and also as a convenient resting place
for the fancy pins worn at the front
and back of tho stock collars.
Old-Fashioned Fancy Revived.
An old-fashioned fancy which has
been revived again Is the darned net
one. A pretty table cover was made
from a piece of net a yard square. A
narrow hem was turned up all around
the edge and covered with a flat lace
braid. Inside the hem was a simple
darned border.
Cushions of darned net are also
popular, as are center pieces, doilies,
piano scarfs, curtains and portierres.
Smart Little Spring Coats.
The spring coats are broadcloth or
velveteen, tho long, plain sacquo
style, single-breasted and without col
lars. And the hats cro moderately
low, round corners nnd wide brims,
and are often gardens of tiny flowers
or fields of waving ribbon loops. Black
chip will bo much worn with all colors
of dresses and for all occasions. Sail
ors have tho wide, up-curving brim
and are most often of fino straw.
Styles in Sleeves.
The sleeve, made of a thin material
and differing from that of the gown,
is seen in tho latest imported models.
