    Specialties From Parasol Designers
MUCH ingenuity is evident in the
shaping and covering of new par
asols. The skill of the maufacturer
must be equal to making up the most
fanciful dreams of those who originate
sunshades that look like big, brightly
colored flowers, with their cups in
verted. They have seized upon the
Persian designs in silks, upon the
broad stripes and checks, and appro
priated bold-flgured laces to make the
most intricate and the most captivat
ing things!
One of the simpler designs is shown
in the picture. It is rather large and
bowl-shaped. Its first covering is of
white silk. Posed over this is a vague
ly flowered overcovering finished with
a scallop at the edge in each panel
of the parasol. The scallops terminate
In a small ornament which, with a
portion of the edge, hang free from
the undercovering.
A pretty parasol, smaller in size and
not so deeply curved, is covered with
white taffeta. Long diamond-shaped
panels of Persian silk in bright colors,
with red dominant among them, are
shirred so that their edges are narrow
ruffles. One of these is mounted over
each rib, their upper points disappear
ing under the tip at the top. The low
er point reaches within about five
inches of the edge of the white taffeta
covering. This is a gay and rich-look
ing little affair, suited to almost any
K- light summer costume.
Plain white parasols with borders of
black and white “checkerboard"
silks are novel and immensely smart.
They are not expensive, ranking in
price with those made of broad stripes.
Among the latter a black and white
striped covering has a border of bright
Persian silk at the edge, about six
i inches wide. It is made on the frame
that we are all familiar with, and is
moderate in design as well as price.
Parasols of shepherd's check, bor
dered with bright-colored bands, are
not new in designs, but they are, like
the all-white ones, always in style.
They look especially smart w'ith out
ing hats and dresses, and will be
seen with the Panama hat decorated
with a sash in the same color as the
band on the sunshade. They are among
the least costly of all and stand near
the head of the list of desirable acces
sories for summer toilets.
Finish for Lingerie.
An exquisite finish for lingerie can
be achieved by crochet work, says
the Modern Priscilla. Instead of but
tonholing neck and sleeves, cut
smoothly, following the lines of the
! pattern. Turn from you with fore
; finger of left hand, following the
method known as rolling or whipping.
Over this crochet with fine cotton,
white or colored, using four single
stitches, and picot of four chain. Set
all close together. It is substantial,
dainty, producing effect similar to tat
ting, and is rapid work.
Liberty in Sleeves.
There is a delightful liberty in the
realm of arm covering. To each aria
its sleeve is evidently the creed of the
designers at the moment. If a woman
wishes to let an admiring public see
that she has been given the rare gift
of a lovely arm she may adopt the
Grecian shoulder drapery which
serves as a sleeve, but is careful not
to hide a fraction of the arm.
A Word or Two About Caps
WITHOUT any claim to originality
to aid them these two bou
doir caps unblushingly call attention
to themselves as noteworthy. They
are examples of what the new laces
bring to morning caps in the way of
attractiveness and grace. If these
laces and nets were less supple, they
would not fall in such soft ruffles, and
if they were too sheer they would not
make such successful plaitings and
hair coverings.
The cap at the left has a full soft
crown of all-over lace and a frill of
lace about the face which widens to
ward the back, where it covers the
neck. It Is adjusted to the head by
the elastic cord that is run in a casing
on the under side where the frill joins
the crown. A few little roses of chif
fon. joined by long stems of silk-cov
ered cord, wander aimlessly over the
The cap at the right is made of
fine net, having a broad panel of
lace along the center of the crown run
ning from front to back. The frill is
of plaited net and the cap is adjusted
with a small elastic cord.
Narrow satin ribbon is laid in a se
ries of short puffs across the front cf
the cap. ending at each side in a short,
pointed end. These are the simplest
of caps, innocent of wires. There are
any number of others, in all sorts of
shapes, all suggesting the hour of gold
en leisure spent at home. They are
only a part of the story of caps, which
-continue to flourish in the smile of fa
vor which the dancing girl still be
stows upon them. But the dancing
cap is really another story.
The Hair at Night,
When sleeping, the head should al
ways be uncovered and the hair will
retain its beauty and luster much
longer. Brush the hair thoroughly,
then raise it nearly to the crown of
the head and braid it in one long
braid. It can then be thrown over
the pillow and you can sleep on eith
er side or the back without lying
on the hair, and the hair is getting a
good airing all night.
Lace Flounces
Several skirts for dancing have old
fashioned lace flounces, two or three
of them, festooned under roses, and
individualists are elongating their
lace sleeves until they form mitts
with thumbs to cover the top of the

Collie Saves Man’s Life.
Fred O’Connell, twenty-four, a SL
Louisan, owes his life to the services
of a Scotch collie owned by Town
Clerk Will Parker of Pana.
O'Connell’s left foot was caught be
tween the bumpers of two cars when
the train took a siding in West Pana.
O'Connell's foot was pinioned and he
was unable to extricate himself. His
cries attracted the collie. The dog
Eeerned to take in the situation and
ran to the Parker home, one block
away, where he gave the alarm. Mrs.
Parker followed the dog to the siding
and found O’Connell unconscious. .Mrs.
Parker notified the trainmen and they
extricated O'Connell.—New York Sun.

State Deprived of Over $300,000 Of
fered by the Government Be
cause of Meager Appropriation.
Lincoln.—The state of Nebraska
has been deprived of over $300,000 of
fered by the government because the
legislature would not make a suf
ficient appropriation to enable the
National Guard to put itself on an ef
ficiency basis.
The finance committee, under the
leadership of Norton of Polk, chair
man of the committee, slashed the
appropriation from $03,000 to $37,000
in the face of the government's offer
to give the state $300,000 and besides
equip the Ashland range so it would
be mobilization ground for the mi
litia not only of this state, but of the
nearby states. The committee was
supported by a vote of 48 to 41. Mer
edith of Saunders, moved to amend
by making the appropriation $93,000.
After voting down by a vote of 40
to 54 the amendment for an appropria
tion of $93,000 for the national guard,
the house then proceeded to vote down
another amendment making the appro
priation about the same as two years
ago, or $68,000.
Governor Signs Four Bills.
The governor has signed the follow
ing bills:
House Roll No. 5—Providing that
counties where there is no high school
must establish a county high school.
House Roll No. 263—Increasing the
salary of councilmen in towns of from
5,000 to 25,000 to $1,500.
House Roll No. 301—Provdes that
property owners must mow weeds on
their property.
House Roll No. 749—Appropriates
$3,000 for the railway commission to
use in opposing freight rate increases
by western railroads.
Now Applies to Parents.
Amended so as to apply to parents
of dependent children instead of to
mothers only, the Beal bill providing
pensions for parents of children need
ing aid was passed by the house. It
now only needs the signature of the
governor to become a law. The house
also passed a bill regulating the prac
tice of dentistry-, a bill forbidding
baseball playing on Memorial Sunday
until after 3 p. m. and a bill provid
ing that clerks of the district court
must turn over naturalization fees to
the county.
Inspection Bill Brought Up.
An exceedingly warm session of the
house committee on miscellaneous
subject took place over house roll No.
2S7, by Stebbins, providing for the in
spection of private hospitals, schools,
convents and other institutions by the
members of county boards once every
four months. After the members of
the committee had expressed their
views upon the bill in the executive
session, a vote was taken, which re
sulted 8 to 3 in favor of placing it on
the general tile. The bill has not yet
been reported out by Chairman Korff.
First Sign of the End.
The first sign that the beginning of
the end of the legislature was in sight
was given when Norton of Polk, floor
leader, sent up a motion for the ap
pointment- of a sifting committee. The
committee was appointed by Speaker
Jackson and consists of three demo
crats at large and a democrat and re
publican from each congressional dis
trict. This gives the republicans six
members of the committee and the
democrats nine.
Omahans Lodge Protest.

state senate protesting against, the
proposed slash by the house in the
appropriation for the national guard
in this state.
Us: of School Hous:s.

by Harris, gives voters of school dis
tricts the right to decide, at annual
meeting, whether school houses may
be used for other purposes.
Senators Keeping Up.
The senate is making good progress
in disposing of its measures. Within
a few days, it is expected, all bills
will be out of the standing committees.
Commission Files Complaint.
The State Railway commission has
filed its formal complaint with the In
terstate commission asking a suspen
sion of the proposed advance by the
railroads in live stock rates.
House Recommends Dope Bill.
Without amendment, just as it
passed the senate the Rrookley anti
dope bill has been recommended for
passage by the house. The bill fol
lows the federal drug act and makes
more stringent the local provisions.
Fire Escapes on School Buildings.
That school houses of two stories
height should be equipped with fire
escapes is the opinion of the hous^
members who have approved a bill to
that effect. The present law applies
only to three-story buildings.
Governor Sends in Bill.
Governor Morehead has sent a bill
to the legislature. It requires county
assessors and clerks to return to the
secretary of state each year lists of
veterans of the army and navy who
served in the civil war, the Mexican
war or the war of 1812 with Great
Britain. These lists are to give in
formation as to service records and
present postofflee addresses of the
veterans. Grand Army of the Re

House in Committee of the Whole
Recommends Greater Omaha
Measure for Passage.
Consolidation of Omaha, South
j Omaha, Dundee and Florence by leg
islative act, without a vote on the
question in any of the merging units,
was agreed upon by the house in com
mittee of the whole. The vote was
55 to 43 in favor of that action. The
bill wrent through the committee of
the whole only after a hard battle by
its opponents. Amendment after
amendment was offered for the pur
pose of submitting the consolidation
proposition at a special election, but
they were of no avail, the friends of
the measure, under the leadership of
Henry Richmond of Douglas, assisted
by others of the Douglas county dele
gation, held their forces well in hand
and refused to budge an inch.

No change is made in the existing
laws against prize fighting in the
amended boxing bill as reported
favorably by the house judiciary com
mittee. The bill also provides that all
wrestling matches shall be regulated
by the proposed state athletic com
mission and provides heavy penalties
for any person implicated in holding
a fake wrestling or boxing match. The
principal features of house roll 255 as
originally introduced by Representa

retained, but the measure as first pro
posed repealed the present drastic
laws against prize fighting.
Water power legislation, which has
so far been held in the background at
this session, now shows some pros

"It appears," says Professor Petrie,
“that the plunderers removed only a
few bricks, so that a man could crawl
into the tomb. One of the men entered,
opened the coffin, lifted the mummy
out and laid it across the coffin, so
that he could easily unwind the band

which he passed out into the shaft,
where we found it. Then he came to
the jewels (a beautiful work of gold
and colored gems), and took it from
the body. Before he could do anything
more the roof apparently fell in, and
crushed him and the mummy. The
other robbers, seeing the fate of their
accomplice, abandoned the tomb, and
filled in the shaft to hide their guilt."
The explorers found the skeleton of
the robber beside that of the mummy.

Use of Field Artillery at Crecy Marked
the End of the Mail-Clad
Fighting Man.
Of all the world’s great battles
Crecy possesses a unique interest. The
English used only three pieces of field
ordnance. They were small cannon
made of trees, bored, and bound with
iron hoops, and the missiles were of
stone, scarcely larger than baseballs.
Doubtless this rude artillery made far
more noise than it affected damage.
It was the longbow and the broad
sword that won the battle, but never
theless gunpowder was henceforth to
play an ever-increasing part in the
strife of nations.
Explosives wrought a vast change
in fighting methods on land, for many
of the old-time weapons were rendered
quite useless in face of death-dealing
ball and shot. Warfare afloat, too,
would be revolutionized. Hitherto the
fighting ships had been largely car
riers of soldiers in order to board and
fight, as on land; whereas the time
was at hand when ships could be rid
dled with cannon-balls without the
crews coming into actual contact.

The Question
Before Us Is—
Wha importance—if any—is there
in the Mineral Content of food?
Listen then, to a well-known physician:—
“Unfortunately for the well-being and health of the
individual and the human race, the manufacture of foods
has been tending more and more to isolation of chemical
entities; and our modern methods of ‘refining’, ‘purify
ing’ and ‘improving’ the foods which Nature so abund
antly furnishes, deprive the natural, wholesome food
products of most of their mineral constituents and there
by reduce their real food values to a minimum.
“The human organism receives but a small fraction
of the nutritive minerals which Nature evidently intend
ed it to have, and the inevitable result is Mineral Starva
tion and its dire consequences in the shape of Malnutri
tion, General Debility, Anemia, Indigestion.Tuberculosis,
Rachitis, Gout, Carcinoma, Diabetes, Nephritis, Decayed
Teeth, and other modern diseases."
The recognition of these facts led, about twenty years ago, to the
perfecting of a food extraordinarily rich in those “mineral constituents”
mentioned above, and which are so necessary for proper growth and
maintenance of body, nerves and brain.
That food is
—a food containing all the nutriment of wheat and barley, including the priceless
phosphorus, iron, lime, sulphur, etc., of these grains.
Easy of digestion, nourishing, economical, delicious-1—this food, as a part of the
daily ration, has proved its worth to thousands.
