Extremely Pretty Dress for Summer May Be Made of Plain and

A very pretty and summery dress of
plain and dotted organdie nchloves lino

adapted to tho stylos of today. Tho
originality of tho model lies In combin

that they play parts of equal Impor

goods In the same way.

its usefulness. Veils aro worn for
two reasons, to keep tho hair neatly

When One May Go Fishing.
In reply to nn Inquiry, Assistant
Attorney Goneral Roe has given an

tho right, Mr. Roe finds, to prevent

to this rulo Is that on a navigable
strentn anyouo may land from a boat
or other vessel If tho necessity should
