"Economy , " said Daniel W. Field ,
the millionaire shoo manufacturer of
Boston , who at the ago of forty-fire
has entered Harvard , "economy Is es
sential to wealth , but by economy I
don't mean niggardliness.
"Too many men fall to attain to
wealth because they practise a
cheeseparing and mean economy that
gets everybody down on them.
"They practise , } n fact , an economy
like that of old William Browstor of
Sag Harbor. William , you know , would
never buy oysters because ho couldn't
oat shells and all. "

For Pieces of Lace
with clever fingers win
WOMEN worth their while to Bavc
nil bits of lace , ribbon and em
broidery that nrc In good condition ,
for they can utilize every scrap In
making the Jabots , bows aud collars
that are now BO much worn. The con
struction of thcee trifles makes plena-
ant work far the summer vacation ,
and they are an useful for gifts as for
personal use. The four designs given
are not commonplace , yet they are
easy to make. The jabot is made of
mull Valenciennes lace , with embroi
dered butterfly tabs of linen. The
largo design hardly needs an explana
tion , as It IB 11 working drawing fern
n collar to be worn with a collarless
gown. The bow has ends of mallncs
under squares of lace. Linen is the
material used for the standing collar.
Tendency Now Shows a Lese Close
Mass of Hair Surmounted by
an Aigrette.
We turn to Paris for the prevail
ing coiffure , and In turning we flnd
slight but noticeable changes.
The present tendency Is toward a
less close mass of hair to which on
aigrette or plume adds height. This
decoration Is hero shown worn with
a Jeweled band of ribbon , which maybe
bo gold or silver or a color studded
with brilliants or with iridescent
gems , according to the gown.
Particularly appropriate for the
young girl Is the wreath of roses worn
with a not-too-flat coiffure , but a
simple ono. Leaves arc often substi
tuted for the roses and to good effect.
With two winged ends of black vel
vet , altogether suitable for an older
woman , is that broad band of black
tulle wired along its edges and
studded with Jet
And last wo recommend for the
more youthful ono a simple fillet of
gold or silver gauze , with at each end
n largo rose , made of cloth of gold
or silver.
Time was when the young girl
looked overdressed with her hair In
a fillet unless it was a very simple
affair , indeed ; but fashions ha'vo become -
como so much more elaborate that ,
with a little discrimination , it is quite
possible to single out many simple
enough hair ornaments for the jouth-
ful face. v
Girls and Their Figures.
Stiff corsets are unknown in France.
French corsets are always supple and
bendable , and this accounts much for
the ease of French figures , which are
never tightened except at the waist ,
leaving the bust and hips quite free.
If the flguro is tightened In too much
at the bust and hips , it gives too
straight a look to the flguro and
makes It stiff aud uncomfortable ,
movement being rendered ungraceful
by this stiffness. Let any girl try to
lace her corset only at the waist and |
let her select it as soft and light as j
possible , and then bee If her figure bo
not as graceful in shape as the French
No tight , straight down , even lacing
will ever make a pretty flguro. If the
corset cannot bo made expressly to
suit the flguro , then let it only be
laced in the middle of the waist. Even
then no real corset should be worn by
girls until they are well In their teens.
Uses of Cretonne.
The "cretonne girl" is trimming her
hat to match her waistcoat , jumper ,
girdle , belt and collar and cuff sets.
With whatever materials she has left
she fashions a bag which Is mounted
on the gilt frame of a shopping purse
that is out of commission because Its
handlOR are broken and its leather
Bides shabby. This does not matter ,
because she throws the leather away
and substitutes cretonne bands for the
broken or worn handles of leather. If
the "cretonne girl" Is unusually ener
getic she may contrive a parasol to
match her other flowered accessories
by carefully matching the cretonne
figures upon the gores of an ancient
parasol cover and then mounting It
upon the original frame. > -
With Manicure Scissors.
The small curved sclssois is an in
valuable little implement In the hands
of the all-iound capable woman. It
belongs to the work basket as well as
a stencil cutter , and it will prove
equally necessary for the cutting out
of embroidery , whether machine or
hand made , and for too cutting away
of material under laces to make them
There are curved lines in sowing
that will bo more safely cut out and
small spaces into which no other scis
sors will so successfully get as the
manicure blade.
French knots fa blue and Irish crochet
lace motifs ornament It. The strap
is fastened by tlirce pearl buttons.
Transparent Wrap Ha Caught the
Fancy of Fashion , and la Surer/
Here to Stay.
Chiffon , marqnteette , silk voile , en
any other material that has not
warmth , but a beautiful transparent
color , Is now used ror outer wraps
that may not be useful If the primary
use of dress be considered , but they
are decidedly beautiful , which. la their
ovm excuse for being.
Mantles of beautiful hues fall Ifko
clouds around the forma of their for
tunate wearers. They are weighted
with heavy fringe , silk ar beaded , or
they are adorned with marabon or
heavy oriental embroidery.
The shapes are so varied that were
any attempt made to describe these
mantles there would be no end. Suf
fice It to sny that all lengths , degrees
of fulness , variations of the lavrer
line and disposition of ends arc al
lowable , the Individuality ct the de
signer coming into play as the de > -
cidlng voice.
The effect cf these transparent
wraps over the filmy evening gowns
of the season Is Indescribable. Merc
man might ridicule and scorn the idea
of a chiffon cloak , but flaunt one of
these before the sensible creature , ami
if he have an appreciation of the
beautiful he will uphold you la your
choice of a lovely accessory.

For Fashion's Sake.
Too many women wear things be
cause they attract the eye , with too lit
tle consideration of the bccomlngness.
Waiting for a car at one of the sub
way stations Uio other day was a
> oung woman , rather unusually well
dressed. But hfir face was horribly
marked , especially about the cheeks
and chin. More than one of the waitIng -
Ing crowd looked curiously , and no
doubt pitied her misfortune. As che
drew nearer the electric light , how
ever , these markings resolved them
selves Into nothing more terrible than
the pattern of her heavily embroidered
veil ! Seen In the light , the pattern
a design that might have been en
larged to some purpose on a pair
of curtains was not beautifying. Been
from n little distance , or In & dim
Jlght , the effect was as described.
Innovations In Ring * .
The latent Jewelry novelty originates
In Germany , and is a special type of
ring for the divorced and the wldowtd.
It Is claimed that these rings save the
wearers , particularly the feminine BOX ,
from embarrassing or painful explana
tions , and In a delicate way inform in
terested persons of their clrcum.

Truth About Romantic Stories of
Wealth Said to Have Been
Hidden In Mexico ,
According to Jose Ramon Palafox ,
n Mexican Journalist , there tire no
hidden Montczunm trcnmiroH.
No doubt the stories circulated
about the hidden treasures of the Az
tec emperors have tholr origin in the
sadly exaggerated accounts of old
Spanish historians men who nwal-
lowed the yarns of the conquerors of
Mexico and whoso Judgment had been
upset by the few shipments of gold
and silver made to Spain shortly aft
er the taking of the Aztec capital.
The amount of gold and silver In the
posscslon of the Aztecs at any tlmo
was comparatively Hiriull and on the
side of the pcoplo consisted of little
moro than a few personal ornaments.
The greatest store of these precloua
metals was found by the Spaniards In
the imperial palace , and this was
promptly shipped to Spain by Cortez.
Compared with the wealth of today

pages of history. Wo road of the
fabulous wealth of the Euphrates val
ley , of ancient Egypt , of India and oth
er parts , and so far have never found
a trace of It. In their day no doubt
thesa people had a certain amount of
gold and silver , but they never had
enough to cause UB moderns to call
them rich. Dispersed among them In
the form of currency , as is the case
of today , tholr wealth In precious
metals would have made them a very
poor showing. Gold and silver , then ,
as In the case of the Aztecs , wore not
used at all as mediums of exchange or
were used only In n very limited way.
Rulers paid and received tributes In
the form of gold , and converted it In
to articles of practical value or ob <

A Strange Lake.
Captain Tilho of the French mis
sion to the Lake Chad region in Afri
ca has discovered sunn a now vagaries
of that puzzling body of water which
has long exercised the jninds of geog
raphers with its problems. He Ion ml

himself , had navigated an open ex
panse of water.
The lake covers an
niea about four-fifths as large as Bel
gium , but its average depth is only
flve feet. Even the winds sufllco to
change its level to such an extent as
to submerge or leave bare portions of
its shores. It is entirely independent
of the rivers that flow into the Atlan
tic and the Mediterranean. Curiously
enough , the lake does not occupy the
lowest part of the great plain of which
it Is approximately the center , for ob
servation shows that northeast of the
lake there are plains of considerably
lower altitude than that of the lake ,
The Southern Seas.
Readers of old records of explora
tion In the South seas will recall fre
quent references to the heavy swells
of the ocean , which impressed the
navigators with the idea of their re
moteness from land. Dr. Vaughan
Cornish explains the great size of the
boa waves in high southern latitudes
by the fact that south of the Capo of
iGood Hope the prevailing wind In all
longitudes is westerly. Thus when a
west wind springs up It finds n long
westerly swell , the effect of a previous
wind , still running. The new born

swell , and so forms majestic btorm

length of 1,200 feet from crest to crest.

A Scientific Problem.
In the center of the garden , on a
pedestal , stood a largo glass globe. As
the guests sauntered about after din
ner ono of them , happening to touch
it , discovered to his amazement that
it was warmer on the shady side than
on the side facing the sun.
An argument immediately sprang
up , and in the course of the debate the
phenomenon was attributed to the law
of reflection or that of repulsion , or
something equally formidable.
"I don't know what ye be a-talkln'
about , " remarked the old gardener ,
who had been an attentive listener to
the conversation , "but I do know that ,
fcarln' the sun would crack this 'ere
globe a while ago , I turned It around. "
