1L51LY Pillars Capped
WORK of Beauty I
By REV. FRANK CRANE. Chicago
J. P. DON'T KNOW AND HAS NO THINK
WHEN King Solomon, built his temple he had set up in front
of it two pillars, which he called Jachin and Boaz, mean
ing permanence and strength.
The cunning artist, Hiram of Tyre, made the pillars,
which must have been imposing, from the many references to them ; and
in the account in the book of Kings it is said : "And upon the top of the
pillars was lily work : so was the work of the pillars finished."
Lily work upon the pillars ! It is a haunting word.
All through the history of architecture men seem to have felt that
the pillars of strength should be capped by the capitals of beauty.
The same law holds good in the realm of spiritual reality that holds
(good in the realm of material appearance.
The law is that the end of strength is beauty, and the basis of beauty
Virtue is pure strength; it is not usable in the temple of life until it
(becomes beautiful that is, till it becomes love.
Love is virtue with lily work.
Contrariwise, mere amiability, tenderness, a pleasing face and manner,
(With no strength of character beneath, is nothing but lily work for its own
sake ; hence cheap and unsatisfying.
So also goodness is the pillar, joy the lily work. Joy without good
ness is moral tawdriness, and goodness without joy is moral crudeness.
The puritans were all for pillar ; the cavaliers were all for lily work,
j There has been a world long conflict between the moralist, seeking for
strength and the artist seeking for beauty.
Manly strength is not perfect ; nor is womanly beauty ; it is the union
'of the two, the family, which is perfect.
i Cromwell and his Ironsides, smashing stained glass windows were pil
lars. ( Bead George Eliot's "Eomola." Romola's husband was all lily work.
I will tell you when the millennium will come. It will be when the
good shall be beautiful, and the beautiful shall be good.
Then shall the future chronicler say: "At that time humanity solved
fits problem. Righteousness and peace kissed each other. For men had at
last learned, in their lives as well as their houses, to crown all pillars with
lily work, and put lily work only upon the pillars."

ter, steam or hot water heat, telephones and
many more comforts and conveniences than are ever possible in a city
apartment or on the average city income.
Many of our most successful farmers are ex-city men, who are suc
ceeding better than many who never left the farm, because they came
to the work with open and active minds, and willingness to learn new
and improved methods. But often the native is content to follow the
antiquated methods of his grandfather.
The man who studies his fields, his crops, their fertilizer needs, the
season, weather conditions; who fights weeds, insects, rodents and other
pests; who studies the mating of different strains of horses, cattle, sheep,
hogs, poultry, pets, bees, for the production of the most desirable qualities
in their offspring; who studies feeding methods; who takes part in local
politics ; interests himself in schools, lodges, church, roads, bridges and all
neighborhood doings will have all the "excitement" that any healthy
minded man needs and then some. When he or his family wish to see
a good play they have the price to do it properly, which is often lacking
with the city man, and comparatively few farms are more than three or
four hours' ride from a live town.
Man is a social animal and needs the companionship of his fellows
to develop the best that is in him ; nowhere is he able to enjoy such com
panionship better than in the country, where everybody knows everybody
else and has a friendly interest in his welfare.
The man who can't live without constant excitement has degenerated ;
if not too far gone the country may cure him ; otherwise, he is hopeless.

a girl marries, she should learn to bear her troubles like a Trojan and

is better than medicine.

When she has sense enough to know that
she honestly loves the man she is going to

contented and happy, be she eighteen or

SOME styles of hair dressing are

Is In the lighter red shades, in
gold or pale drab shades, and especial
ly the ash blondes, may pick out fluffy
and elaborate coiffures which are suit
ed to their individual style.
An unusual coiffure is shown here
worn by a. model with pale gold hair.
The very white skin and dark eyes
perhaps lend a charm to this hair

BRILLIANCY IN SHOE COLORS
Many of the Modes Verge on the Gar
ish, Though Remarkably Pretty
Effects Are Produced.
Just as colors In hosiery have been
used with discretion by the woman
with a talent for dress, so bave colors
In our footgear. Some women have
adopted gayly colored tops for their
shoes with an eclat which carried
them off; others have Impressed us
with the vulgarity of the new whim.
But one and all have fallen captive to
the new Colonial slipper, which was
Introduced along with the dashing lit
tle Directoire coats, the Continental
hats, and other reminders of the Na
poleonic period. It is a Jaunty little
affair, which is simply bewitching on
the right foot, a slender little foot
with a well arched instep, for It
boasts a broad pointed tongue, spread
ing out over the insted, a high heel,
on the Spanish order, and a stunning
buckle just such a buckle as the
more fortunate of us have handed
down for generations. We copyists of
today select such a bucgle in gun
metal, leather, old silver, or, if we
wish to be very rash, rhinestones.
Can't you see Just how fascinating
these slippers can be?
For evening, our satin slippers,
whether in black or a color to match
the gown, are brilliant with buckles
of the glittering rhinestones, or cut
steel. The bow knots of platinum,
set with brilliants, are entrancing as
adornments to a dainty satin slipper.
Still another fancy calls for a button
SERVING THE AFTERNOON TEA
Appurtenances May Be Costly or Sim
ple, but Everything Must Be of
the Daintiest Order.
When the woman who Is her own
maid serves afternoon tea she appre
ciates the convenience of having a
cart which can be wheeled from kitch
en to living room and wili hold every
thing that is needed for the collation.
The carts come in mahogany or fumed
oak with glass top shelves and rub
ber tired wheels and In natural wood
with rattan, and, considering their
usefulness, none are very expensive.
Lacking the cart, many housekeepers
have in their living room a little oak
or mahogany or willow tea table
equipped with a spoon drawer, which
also holds several paper napkins. In
stead of keeping the service upon
the table its top is ordinarily covered
with an elaborately embroidered silk
en mat, which is whisked off when the
tea equipage is brought in on a tray
of the proper size. Unless this tray
is a handsome affair of glass rimmed
with mahogany, silver or brass, it
should be covered with a fine linen
tray cloth and be accompanied by a
muffin stand of wood or of willow.
There is a growing fancy for parasols
and umbrellas that can be easily pack
ed. One of the newest is adjustable to
any angle, which makes it convenient
for motoring, tennis tournaments or
the races, and when closed the top dis
appears in the handle. This sunshade
has a rosette and loop by which It can
be slung over the wrist.
Folding umbrellas are now made to
go In small trunks and compact enough
to be tucked into a suitcase or even a
sachel. An umbrella which does not
fold, but weighs only twelve ounces. Is
of thin, strong silk on a light steel
frame and stick.
they are the new and individual fea
ture of this style. Not everyone can
All the hair is waved for this hair
dress and the. puffs are quite liberally
pinned on. That would at any rate
be the most convenient way in which
to wear them. They are too light and
fluffy to burden or heat the head and
as a matter of fact, much more com
fortable than the natural hair is when
arranged in so many puffs.
It will be noticed that the puffs are
arranged very close to the head and
that there is not much hair at the
sides of the face as in the greater
number of today's coiffures.
(BEAD TASSEL EASILY MADE
Having the Fringe and Beads, the
Decoration Is by No Means Hard
to Put Together.
A very simple bead tassel can be
made from deep fringe or from loose
If you use loose beads you must
thread forty lengths of seventy beads
each, or twenty lengths of a hundred
and thirty beads if a double end is
preferred to a single one. Each
length Is attached to a narrow strip
of satin ribbon, which is then wound
round and round and stitched through
to prevent the middle of the little
bundle from slipping.
If the tassel is made of fringe, cut
off five inches and wrap the heading
round and sew as described above.
Next take a piece of stiffening one
inch and a half long, two inches broad
at one end and three-quarters of an
inch at the other. Cover with silk
and oversew the edges together so aa
to form a tube.
Slip the satin ribbon inside the
larger aperture in the tube and stitch
through securely, for the beads make
the tassel very heavy. Thread about
two hundred beads and wind the
string round the tube to completely
cover the silk, sewing at intervals.
Make another string of eighty beads,
double into three, and sew to the top
to form a loop.
This attractive little suit is of tus
sah silk in natural color. The drest
is made with a long-waisted blouse
and short skirt, the latter finished
with lace to match.
The blouse is trimmed at the top
with hand-embroidertd dots, and the
girdle is of taffeta of a contrasting

He glared not so unpleasantly. Mr. Morgan's face was ruddy, showtos)
that he had been out in the sun.
The young man suggested to Mr. Morgan that he could get his salary
raised if he could extract an interview from him.
"All right. How much will they raise It? IH pay the difference. Give
you a check right now. But tell me how much and then get out." .
"Mr. Morgan, you were pretty close to Emperor William?"
He whirled. "Who said so? Who told you that?" .

"Do you think that means war?"

"He did not tell me he was going to war. He didn't tell me anything;
about it. See, here," continued Morgan, putting his emphatic fist under
the reporter's nose, "I don't know and I don't think. I have got no think.'
THE RAPID RISE OF
C. D. Hllles, today field marshal of
the Republican forces, was, less than
four years ago, guarding the Interests
of several hundred orphans In a
juvenile asylum at Lancaster, Ohio,
of which he was the superintendent.
His rapid rise in public life is a dra
matic story and intensely American
in its illustration of the opportunity
that, even in these days, awaits the
young man who does his job well.
From the hour of his renomlnatlon
President Taft steadily Insisted that
his secretary was the right man to
head the national committee, and aft
er a little consideration of the char
acter of Mr. Hilles the seasoned poli
ticians reached the same decision.
Who Is Mr. Hilles and why has he
succeeded where his predecessors have
consistently failed? By what art does
he succeed as secretary to the presi
dent, recognized as the most difficult
official billet In Washington? Why
does the president prefer him as a
leader in the campaign? The answer to these questions,' direct from the
White House, is Hilles has "the poise and the touch."
It was the Chicago pre-conventlon campaign that made Mr. Hilles a
national figure In politics. He had quietly organized the campaign In a
thorough and painstaking manner that permitted Representative McKinley,
the president's political manager, to start with an efficient, organization.
At Chicago, where Mr. Hilles was the personal representative of tha
president, he surprised friends and foes alike by his deep insight Into every
move of the opposition and his ready defence for each attack.
His capacity for work kept him going until three and four o'clock In the
morning without his feeling it. He went about his work in his orderly way.

was still busy, but as soon as she could straighten out everything she said
she was ready to go with the minister. Colonel Green had his car in readi
ness and the trip across the river to Jersey City on their spiritual mission
Several persons noticed Mrs. Green as she alighted from the car and
entered the rectory, but nobody recognized her. Even the sexton, of the,
church was kept in Ignorance; The baptismal ceremony was conducted in,
the church. Owing to the advanced age of Mrs. Green sponsors were noti
required, according to the church laws, and Colonel Green merely acted as a
witness. The Greens returned to New York after the ceremony.
Mrs. Green will now prepare herself for confirmation, a ceremony that,
will be conducted bj Bishop Edwin S. Lines of the New York diocese.
