By RICHARD SPILLANE.

Whenever tho United States cub
toms authorities at one of the largo
ports along tho Atlantic havo laces
or other delicate fabrics about tho
value of,.wh!ch they are in doubt, there
1b one rulo to follow. That Is to send
for Sara Hadley. In tho estimation
of the government, she knows mora
about needlework than any other wom
an in America. Sho is America's great
lace expert. There is not a stitch that
1b known to woman that she isn't mis
tress of. There isn't a thread that
ever was mado that she doesn't know
the history of- There isn't a precious
pleco of lace work handed down from
former centuries that she doesn't
know as well as tho most famous of
art experts know tho work of Michael
Angelo, Rubens, or any of tho other
great masters. Whatever she says
about tho product of the needle is ac
cepted as gospel.
Some girls take naturally to needle
work. Sara Hadley was one of them.
Sho is a Canadian, having been bora
In Chatham, which isn't far from De
troit. She had a local reputation bo-
fore sho was tweh? yeprs old for her
remarkablo work in the sewing line.
Her people wore well to do and thero
was no particular reason why sho
should apply herself to needlework,
but sho had so much lovo for making
pretty things and so much patlenco
that her parents determined to in
dulge her to the fullest and give to
her every opportunity to learn all thero
was to be learned about tho art. After
she got through school on this sldo of
tho water, they sent her abroad. She
finished her regular studies in a fa
mous educational institution and then
she took a sort of postgraduate course
by traveling all over Europe. Sho
didn't travel as most women travel,
bat west to live among tho peasants
to study their work with the needle.
There she got moro knowledge about
laoo making than sho ever absorbed
through books or regular teaching.
Through France, Belgium, Switzer
land, Italy, Sweden and Ireland sho
went on her mission of study. It
took years of earnest work, but they
vero happy years.
Wat Forced Into Business.
When sho returned to this side of
the Atlantic she had no intention of
making a business use of her accom
plishments. Some persons aro forced
into business. -
Miss Hadley couldn't help sewing.
It was second nature to her. Women
who saw her work or heard about it
questioned her. Then thoy told oth
ers about her. That led to a lot of
visitors. They made all sorts of sug
gestions to her as to what she should
do. Some of them wanted to take
loBsons from her. Sho wont to Now
York and had the samo experience
sho had In other cities. She was in
duced to givo lesBons in embroidery
and tho most delicate of needlework
to a small class of women. That paid
her so well that she took anothor
class. (Teaching was easy for her.
A little later sho began to writo
about lace and as a result of that
writing sho became editor of a mag
azine known as tho Laco Maker. Col
lectors consulted Miss Hadley when
ever thoy wlHhed to buy flno laces. Mu
seums asked her judgment and em
ployed her to search the history
of such lacos as thoy possessed. Tho
government recognized her officially
by using her writings and her exam
ples as tho basis for instruction in
needlework In tho government Bchools
In Porto Rico, the Philippines nnd
elsowhore. Then sho got to buying
laces and displaying thorn.
Probacy no woman who ever lived
lias had moro influence on needlework
ers than Miss Hadley. Sho has in
vented all sorts of stitches, and cre
ated a multitudo of new designs. It
wps she wbo Introduced tho dolly and
taMe, laces generally. Tho Inserting
5f laco into linen for tablo laces was
tier work. Sho can copy nny plcturo
In lace. Sho can represent any stylo
jr any period with tho deft touches
if tho needle.
Now a Great Lace Dealer.
From her start ns teacher and her
work as editor and advisor to collect
ors, Miss Hadley has grown gradually
to bo ono of tho great laco dealers of
America. Many of her treasures tho
public never see. All the moro beau
tiful of her laces aro hidden away in
great safes, guarded ob jealously as
tho Maiden Lano dlumond merchants
guard their most predouB Jewels.
And why not? Some of these laces
aro eight centuries old. There are
pieces of gowns worn by priests, bish
ops and princes of the church ngos
boforo Columbus was born. Thero
aro collars that were worn by tho
doges of Venice in tho time of Vene
tian greatness. Thoy nro very thin,
Tery frail, very fllray. Thoy nro worth
a hundred times their weight in gold.
,They are tho very flneBt examples of
Venetian laco making, but Venice
played only oue part In the history of
laco making. Tho llelglans nro fa
mous for tholr work. So aro tho
French. So nro tho Irish. So are
the Danes. People go to seo Miss
Hadlcy's laces as they go to seo old
friends, or as pcoplo go to the Metro
politan museum to feast upon its
treasures. To somo persons old laces
have a very strong personal appeal.
When Miss Hadley disposes of ono of
her belonglngB that sho has had for
a long time, the regulars Blgh, If they
do not actually mourn.
Thero probably is not another busi
ness in all. New York just like that
of this laco maker from a llttlo Cana
dian town. Sho has the histories nnd
the romances of hundreds of families
In tho goods sho deals in. Many of
her laces aro heirlooms. Somo aro
old-time laco shawls that havo been
in ono family for two, three, four or
flvo generations. Somo of them aro
very old nnd very rare. Now It Is
tho faBhton for us to uso theso as
wedding veils or as decorations for
wedding dresses. Tho more of his
tory there Is to ono of theBO ex
quisite bits of lace, tho moro valu
able. She Can Repair Anything.
Now and then a tearful woman will
come to Miss Hadley and throw her
self on her mercy. Sho mny bo n mil
lionaire or a run-down Knickerbocker.
It matters not, If It so happens that
A Tearful Woman Will
one of her old laces has been torn by
accident or through tho carelessness
of a servant That laco has been the
Joy of her life, the prido of all her
possessions. If MIbs Hadley cannot
mend it, what 1b sho to do? Miss Had
ley does mend it. It may take months,
sometimes it takes a year if the dam
ago is particularly bad, but sho can
mend anything that a needle is capa
bio of mending. It does not signify
if it is point appllquo, or roso point,
or brugo, or Venetian, or carrlckma
cross, or burnno; onco she sees tho
stitch and tho design, tho rest Is mere
ly a mattor of patience a patience
most trying in somo instances.
To assist her In her work, tho lnco
expert has had to train qulto a largo
numbor of womon. Somo of theso nro
going to tako up tho lino of teaching
later on. The work thoy aro now do
ing Is delicate. In tho extreme; It Is so
flno that thoy cannot work at It moro
than two or three hours a day. On
somo of tho pieces mado by laco
makerB tho nccdloworker is employed
two or threo years. Tho number of
stitches they take Is In tho millions.
They mako things as small as a but
terfly and they mako others things as
largo as a great tablecloth that would
cover n board of tho most generous
proportions. No painter ever gavo
moro attention to detail than do these
remarkable needloworkors in carrying
out tho designs in theso fabrics. They
havo to know art nnd they havo to
know history. They stitch out Egypt's
most famous queen just as easily as
they do tho plainest of mosaic work.
Rich Women Her Pupils.
Probably no woman in tho world
has had moro rich womon for her pu
pils than has this nccdleworker from
Canada. Ono of tho first women she
taught whon sho camo to Now York
was Mrs. Wllllnm Astor. Her second
or third was Mrs. Collls T. Hunting
ton. To give tho wholo Hat would bo
llko repeating tho Bluo Book.
Mrs. Huntington has como to bo
ono of tho greatest collectors in Amer
ica. Her laces aro of fabulous value.
Sho has given moro earnost study to
tho history of laco than any other of
tho rich womon that havo shown ox
portness In needlework. Sho is al
most qualified to ho n laco oxpert her
self. If sho lost all lior monoy to
morrow, she could cam a good living
from her knowledgo of laces.
To Miss Hadloy's mind no business
open to women today offers greator
opportunities than lnco making. It Is
broad in its scopo. It takes in tho
poor girl and tho girl who Is gontly
brod. Its rewards aro largo to thoso
who master it. It practically Is In its
fciJI , ,,ViVW!'lHi..,
infancy In the United States. So long
as thero Is wealth, nnd, tho lovo of
tho beautiful, laco making will endure.
There Is no renson why Amerlcnn laco
makers should not, it well taught, bo
como tho equal of tho European, Tho
American girls who hnvo taken up,
lace making and have been ambitious
and havo had their heart in their
work, havo made surprising progress.
Some of them, in diet laco mako parts
of tho mesh just as well as do tho
most export laco makers of Europe.

for today wo havo, first, Mark's record
of tho discovery of tho resurrection
by the women, and, second, Matthew's
record of how his enemies dealt with
I. The Resurrection Morn, Mark
16:1-8. The Sabbath ended at sun

Mary Mngdalcno then purchased
spices that they might nnolnt tho dead

Matt. 28:1 R. V. Starting the noxt
morn, "while it was yet durk," John
20:1, they camo to tho tomb to per

and lovo. He had no need of this serv
ice. Matt. 16:21; 20:19; however, it
wns acceptable and thoy were reward
ed by receiving tho first glimpse ol
the risen Lord.
Women's Love Genuine. ,
Tho reason they did not expect to
boo a risen Jesus was in their failure
to listen to and to ponder on his
words. Tho men also failed to com
prehend tho note of his resurrection
which ho so frequently sounded. In
deed, tho report of these samo women
Is by theso men considered "nB Idlo
tales," Luko 24:11. Tho women ap
pear in a better light than tho men In
thlB story. Tho women, especially
Mary Magdalene, loved much becauso
ho had dono so much for them. Tho
extent and tho genuineness of their
affection Is found In thnt they went to
tho tomb to servo Jesus whon appar
ently hopo had fled and faith was
blighted, I Cor. 13:8 R. V. Their visit
was tho fulfillment of their ministry
of love, yet it reveals the darkness of
their minds. ThlB was common to all
of his followers.
Approaching tho tomb they aro con
fronted by aj now difficulty "Who
Bhall roll away the stone?" Tho words
of verso four aro significant "Look
ing up, they seo that tho stone Is rolled
back," Am. R. V. This undoubtedly
refers to tho situation of tho tomb and
their approach thereto, yet the fact
remains that "looking up" most of our
difficulties aro removed. Lot us be
constantly "looking unto him." It has
boon suggested that God rolled away
tho stone, not that Jesus might get out,
but rather that tbo women might 'get
In. Mary found two angels sitting,
ono at tho head and ono at tho foot,
where the body had lain, John 20:11,

I Tho womon were overwhelmed with
perplexity and, llko Peter and John,

message as great and as glorious aa
that sounded by the angels on tho
night of his birth.

ly tho manner of hln death and his re

prcsston of tho ultlmnto antagonism
of tho priests and rulers. As this, tho

abroad tho tnlo that tho disciples had

such a talo Ib evldonced by tho fact
that tho rankest Infidel has not tho
temerity to mako such a claim today.
Tho resurrection, as Paul affirms, Is
tho declaration thnt Jesus Is tho Son
of God. It is a vindication of hla
supremacy and of tha supremacy of
the spiritual over tho natural. Wo do
