Mandarin hats of black straw or
lacquered printed satin, and gold
Chinese bracelets fastening with a
long pin, have already made their
appea-once, while new spring fab
rics, now being shown designers,
reflect an Oriental Influence. Some
prints are patterned with tiny pa
godas or fishes and others with de
signs which recall Oriental porce
lains and vases—tiny flowers with
in larger flowers linked In n
smoothly running pattern.
The striking lines and polychrome
effects of Chinese porcelains, paint
ings and tapestries are being studied
for possible color Inspiration for
spring clothes.
One shoe designer is working on
boudoir bootees of turquoise or
peach blossom pink satin embroid
ered In small flowers, which are cut
to mount well over the ankle in a
manner recalling the Chinese boot.
Tills winsome two-piece dress Is so
called because It has heart-shaped
buttons and pockets. Perhaps the
thought of St Valentine Inspired It.
Anyhow, worn on February 14 It
would make quite a “hit” or on any
other day, for that matter, for
there Is no denying this clever frock
Is exceedingly attractive. It Is
made of pure silk crepe In a lovely
rich coral tone entered on the new

Watch for brald-trlmmed dresses,
suits and ensembles. They are
coming along thick and fast In the
advance spring collections. Flat
braids, any and every sort of braid

new fashions. Soutache, of course,
will he In the lend, for It lends It
self so aptly to versatile treatment.

shown Is of white silk gahc.dlne.
Gabardine, by the way. Is a word
to keep In inlnd, for It Is going to

Clever New Tricks Used to
Get Color Contrasts.
When It comes to feathers yowig
women seem to like the tiny, curled
glided ostrich tip. The folding for
real flowers has also brought in all
sorts of tiny or larger flower deco
rations made of fabric, ranging
from a tiny circle of pink rosebuds
to enormous coronets and tiaras of
satin or velvet.
Color contrast Is not new, but It
Is done In different ways this mid
season. Some of them are the
pocket sections in bright color on
Schiaparelli's white resort suits 1

the waistline of Paray's black

Tibet's High Mountains
Feature of Strange Land
Tibet, most mywtsrlou* of coun
tries of central Asia, la a land

writer In the Chicago Tribune. High
mountain ranges there are cut by
narrow valleys, the whole of the
country being so rugged and rocky
that It Is capable ef supporting a
population of barely three mlllloa
souls. A tlsable proportion of these
are lumas, or priests who dwell
within lamaseries that ding peril
ously to the steqp slopes of the awe
inspiring mountains.

In this strange land the people carry
on a precarious form of agricul

of Buddhism known as Lantabuu. It
Includes a widespread belief In re
incarnation. The head of the church,
who likewise is the bead of the
state, bears the title of Dulal lama.
Second lo authority In the country
and the church Is the Tashi lams,
to whom are attributed great spir
itual powers.
Since the Jesuit fathers Orueber
and IVOrvlUe visited Tibet In 1081
few Europeans or other aliens have

Irish Celtic in Origin
The Irish people, while a mixture
of race, are lurgely Celtic in origin,
descended from the Celts, part of
Ihe great Aryan race which swept Europe many centuries before
the Christian eca. They are not
Semitic In origin. There are va
rious traditions nnd poetic failles
to account for the early Inin,. Hants
of Ireland, before the Col Me Inva
sion. Constantin Maxwell's Short
History of Ireland refers to the
legends of Invasions and coloniza
tions hy tlve different peoples, t
I’arthalonlnna, Nemctlluns. Cirb >|;
Dedannans nnd Milesians. Tin.
Milesians, last of l'ie Celtic speak

supposed to have arrived between
1700 and 1000 B. C., from Scythia,
through Thrace, Egypt. Gothland,
Britain nnd Spnln.
Oliver Cromwell a* Dictator
There la Hltle disputing the fact
that Oliver Cromwell, during his
office ns Lord Protector of England,
exercised dictatorial powers, al
though Id his pronouncements he
Invariably associated himself with
the parliament and acted lu co

that body was sitting. In its aiw
sence he alone decided matters of
state, but persisted until Ms death
In accepting only the title of Lord
Protector, having refused the otter
of crown made by the parliament.
Indians Traced to Yellow Race
The original re) nmn, the Amer
ican Indian, came from pure yellow
stock and did not carry any black
strain from admixtures with na
tives of Oceania, reports Dr. Ales
Hrdllcka, curator of anthropology
of the Smithsonian Institution,
Washington. He brands as ••fabu
lous” the theories thnf natives of
the Oceanic Islands left tlicir Im
print on the American continent.
These Islands were occupied by the
Melanesian peonies only as recent
ly as the Hut millennium before
Christ, at which time the New
world had been populated for sev

B. P. and C- M—You will receive
your private replies next week.
Dear Miss Watters—My husband
opens my letters without my per
mission. What shall I do to stop
him? He says that it is alright
for me to open his- I am not in
terested in reading other people’s
letters and I don’t want anybody
reading mine—J. S. C.
Answer—Ha is probably inter

your actions causes him to be
lieve that you are carrying on im
proper correspondence. The best
way to stop him would be to permit
him to read all of the le‘ters until
he has convinced himself that he
is wrong in ever suspecting that
you would try to put something
over on hint- There is no rea
son for secrecy between husband
and wife, although it is practiced
in many instances.

Slight Error Found in
Fahrenheit Thermometer
Fahrenheit, who made the first
mercury - glass thermometer, arbi
trarily assumed that the amount ot
expansion of mercury was exactly
proportional to the increase o<
temperature. The error of thia as
sumption was learned when It was
found that the rates of expansion
of different liquids were not strict
ly proportional to each other and
therefore not proportional to the
Thermodynamical calculations
have shown, writes Dr. Thomns M.
Beck, In the Chicago Tribune, that
temperature la exactly proportional
to the pressure of an Ideal gas
(that Is, a gas whose molecules
possess neither weight m>r vol
ume). Unfortunately, an Ideal gas
exists only as a theoretical concept.
Ilowever, certain gasea, particu
larly hydrogen and helium, ap
proach the ideal In behavior and,
by application of small corrections,
cun be made o give the same re
sults as an Ideal gr.s. Consequent
ly the eor.-eeted hydrogen thermom
eter Is the standard od which all
thermometers are based and la
used for the most precise tempera
m-e measurements.
The hydrogen thermometer fa
rather cumbersome, so for every
day pu^tottes the mercury ther

not be wsad below the freezing
point of mercury (—40 degree*).
ff.»r such temperatures thermome
ter* fill-id with alcohol or pentane
(a luw-mlMng gosobne) are used.

Bactrian Camel, Central
Asia’s Beast of Borden
Quite s lot of people think that

This Is not so. The two-bamped

It Is shorter Is the leg and has
stouter and harder feet than Its re
