WOMEN GAINING IN BEAUTY.
Exercise Is Doing It , Says William
Chase , an Artist. | ! I
New York. Feb. " . William M. '
Chase , a famous artist , was shown the
statement today of Prof. Dudley A.
Sargent , physical director of Harvard ,
that women are gaining physically
on the men , and may soon be the
stronger sex. He said : "There can't' ' '
be any doubt of it In the world. I've
been noticing the change for a long
time , and the sane habit of exercise .
of the present generation is forming' I5 '
a new typo of women , with more physical - ,
sical perfection , therefore , more
strength , more beauty. j
"Yes yes yes , he's right ! Rut he
doesn't tell the most important part
of It for most women , anyway. That
Is , that in gaining In strength , women ! r
are also gaining In beauty. American J j
women , particularly , are becoming
more beautiful every day. I abso
lutely mean every word I say when
I toll you that in no quarter of the
globe nowliero in the world , Is a
beauty comparable with that of the
athletic American woman of today. "
"Then you don't think , with many ,
that the Intellectual pursuits which
naturally follow when women gain
added strength take away anything
from the delicacy of their beauty ? " ho
"No no no no no ! " exclaimed ,
Mr. Chaso. "I cannot possibly make ,
that too strong. Why should a woman
who uses her brain become less beauti
ful ? It only gives her more soul
and soul is the life of beauty. "
"What is your Idea of the ideal
American typo of beautiful women ? "
o"The athletic one by all means , " au
swored the artist decidedly , " and they
don't como from any particular part
of America. "
THE WAIST LINE MOVES UP.
Latest Paris Fashions Nearly on Nors
mal Models Again.
Paris. Feb. 7. Patiln ( | In making all
bis now KOWIIM full from the waist.
The ' waist line has reached the normal
line , but Is still two or three Inches
too large for a good effect , for the
hips ' " are as much pulled In as over.
The dresses have pieces put on at the
belt ' ' , either back , front or side , and are
made quite bouffant. Such dresses do
not pull from the knees down. That
Is ' ! to say , dresses have Iho air of beIng -
Ing fearfully light , but It Is ony the
lining , for nothing Is more ample than
the t moUHsellne and lace put on over
Sometimes these luxurious dresses
have lace put on over cashmere do
solo or meteor or velvet , whatever the
goods happens to bo. Then over the
lace Is moussollno of the exact color.
The ensemble Is most lovely , and this
veiled effect Is given almost everything -
thing where lace Is used. Mallne and
blond ' lace show best , for the lace must
necessarily bo very light and delicate.
Otherwise , the very line , soft effect Is
lost. This Is an Invention of Paquln
which arrived last summer.
Plaiting Is seen in many of the new
skirls. II Is small and Hat , known as
the t "knife" plait. In Iho middle of
the l back or front , and pressed quite
Mat ' , the effect Is good. It lakes much I
I' ' Hie intense plainness off the plain
up-and-down > skirls. Tills is the case
with walking skirts , for as a rule
long 1 skirls seem to have no shape.
They ] are probably cut bell-like to the
knees , whore they again curve in , to
branch I out suddenly below. The only'
beauty ( about those skirts is that they
twine about a woman as she stands.
Sometimes It takes a little time to
"unlace" oneself , too , and to step out.
The shawl rover has disappeared to
give place to a very largo one that
well covers the dross. At least it Is
so with some of the newest dresses.
One sees very few coiors at the
dressmakers' parlors these days. Even
the best evening frocks are black , no
matter what ttio trimming. A pretty
black satin afternoon dress Is trimmed -
mod with white crystals , the cointuro ,
the hem about the skirt and the trim
ming on the corsage being of the
crystals. The effect of this dross was
quite simple , and yet it was by no
means so. When one considers the
numerous bands and lappings that go
on the cordage and the pieces that
twine about the knees , it is as a rid
dle. Very little goods Is used in the
dresses , that is sure , but that very
.scarcity of material is what renders
the cut and draping difficult.
All the fashionable bats are posed
half ' on the front of the head , half on
the side. They really sit astride of the
head. The best are suggestive of the
Napoleons , but are larger and the
brims are more upstanding. In mes-
saline or in black velvet , tied with a
pretty veil , the hats are stunning.
Hut one must sec to appreciate them.
They are simple , both as to decoration -
tion and shape , for the shape is noth-
.ing but a medium high crown , round ,
with a brim that stands straight upi
all around. '
Some of the new hats of this snape
are of seal or seal imitation , and are
very elegant. They require little if j
any trimming. Nothing is necessary
but a short plume , a thick aigrette or j I '
'Isome ; of the pretty butterfly effects *
given in gold or silver braid. Cockades ' j ! i
are put on every day hats. Steel roses ,
trim the black messaline hats perfectly - ,
fectly and make them as dressy as the
wearer could wish.

The new sanitary drinking fountain
has been Installed upon the lower
tlonr of the hall of the high school.
This enables the pupils to drink with
out touching the lips to the drink
ing cup. There Is thus no way In
which disease may be carried from
one pupil to another by means of the
common cup. If this fountain is suc
cessful it Is probable that the drink-
Ing-cup system will be entirely done
away with at thu high school. The
danger of the public drinking cup Is
becoming so well known that Kansas
has a law which prohibits the use of
it I upon railroads and In hotels. People
ple are coming to realize how danger
ous to the community it is and how
expensive the diseases which may lie
spread In this way really are. Recent-
ly ' a drinking cup used In the schools
of a large town was taken to a laba-
ratory for examination. This was at
a time when there was no epidemic
of disease ; yet then ) were found in tlio
deposit inside of the cup numerous
particles I of dead skin and among them
were thousands of germs of tubercu
losis , and a large number of the germs
of diphtheria. It would be hard to
tell how many children contracted
tuberculosis from tills cup , although
the disease may not have affected any
until years afterward.
RURAL CARRIERS MAY FLY.
That Will be One Use for the Aero
plane , an Expert Says.
New York , Feb. 7. The use of aero
planes in rural free delivery is advo
cated by Wilbur R. Kimball , an in
structor in aeronautics in the West
Side Y. M. C. A.
"The practicability of the aeroplane
has been fully demonstrated , " Mr.
Kimball said in his opening lecture
to his class of would-be fliers , " and
within two years "it will be used com
mercially to an extent not now dream
ed of. Rural free delivery , for ex
ample , is subject to great delays on
account of storms and bad roads.
With the aeroplane , however , the
farmers' hard earned free delivery
would be above these dilllculties. Ills
mail would be dropped in a little
pouch from the aeroplane , which
would then speed on to the next farm
house to deliver its packet. Mail
could be collected through an arrange
ment by which tlio aerial chauffeur
could lower a hook and catch up the
packages of mail.
"One of these rural free delivery
aeroplanes will cover a district ten
times as large as that served by the
present slow wagon system.
Farmers all over this territory have
been ' exerting every effort to get to
market with their grain before tlio
roads become so soft with spring thawing -
ing , that hauling will be impossible.
Every day during the past week when
there | was a crust frozen on the roads ,
wagons poured into Norfolk , filled
'with grain. There wus no attempt
to haul during the afternoons , fK'CAiise
the aftprnoon sun melted the ice and ' t
brought chuck holes in the roads.
On days during the preceding week
it was impossible to haul more than
half a load of grain , because of the
holes in the road.
One-Fifth ol Corn Still in Field.
A Norfolk grain man estimates that
.there is still about 20 per coiit of the
corn crop in the fields , inaccessible
as yet , because of snowdrifts , to the
buskers. Meanwhile , however , a great
deal of husking has been done during
the past few weeks.
The snow Is gradually disappearing ,
melting during the' day and freezing
at night , thus going off in the best
possible , way so as to avoid Hoods.
A Norfolk farmer who brought hay
to town yesterday said it is selling at

Mrs. Minnie Stark has filed suit in
the district court of Pierce county
against Julius Kuhl for $10,000 dam-
for alleged breach of promise.
Mrs. Stark was keeping house for
Kuhl at Pierce and Kuhl , she claims ,
promised tu marry her. A short time
ago Mrs. Stark came to Norfolk to
visit relatives and while she was here
Knhl went lo Hosklns where ho mar-
ried Miss Gradio Hertz January 21.
The bride is 22 years old.
Mrs. Stark formerly lived at Iho
Junction where two years ago her
second husband , Albert Stark , was
killed at the Northwestern roundhouse.
After his death .Mrs. Stark sued Iho
railroad company and a settlement
was made in her favor for $1,500.
Kuhl is a prominent citizen of
Pierce county. At one time ho was
vice president of the Farmers State
bank of Had'ar. Mr. and Mrs. Kuhl
have gene to housekeeping on the
Kuhl farm northeast of Pierce.
The records of Pierce county show
that Kuhl has made a transfer of his
real estate to M. Inholder , a banker
of Pierce , and to his newly wedded
wife. Ho has also transferred his
personal property by bill of salo. Mr.
Kuhl has been married throe times ,
It is reported.

MERCHANTS MAY CUT PRICES.
Nebraska Retailers to Consider Plan at

MadlHim , Neb. , Feb. 7. Retail mer-
bants of Nebraska have called a
meeting to consider co-operative moth-

in bad accounts and produce which
ire costing a sum annually added to
the price of the necessities of life
Hid hero alone Is a saving which , the
merchants themselves say , will affect
the high prices and have a tendency
to bring them to lower levels.
Fred Dlers ol Madison heads the
movement and the meeting will be
lield In thirty days In Omaha. More
than 2,000 merchants In Nebraska are
now being Invited to attend and Oma-
! ia business men will entertain the

chant for one year , $3,048.
Tims , according to Mr. Dlers , the
merchants of Nebraska are wasting
annually a sum which alone adds to
the total cost of living in the stale.
This Madison merchant , who has been
instrumental in working out locally a
co-operative plan which makes the sav
ing possible , has the names of 2,000
other merchants in the state , every
one of whom can save $ : ! ,048 each year
or $ tJ,0J,000. ! ) ( This amount is now-
wasted and makes an increase in the
cost of necessities of life bought from
the country merchants. Mr. Diers is
not taking into account the thousands
of small dealers who do not do a busi
ness largo enough In volume to make
the saving but bo claims there are
2,000 merchants in the state who do
such a business.
Under the name of the "Federation 1
of Nebraska Retailers. " these men 1
have been invited to meet in Omaha
March S , i ) and 10 and they are to
hear from the experts who are Inter
ested In the organization , just how the
saving can bo made. Wholesalers and
jobbers of the state are back of them ,
and propose to make It if possible a
stalewide movement for the elimina
tion of waste in handling merchandise ,
make the profits larger that the consumer
sumor need not be compelled to pay
not only the legitimate profit , but also
for the loss on bad accounts , premium
schemes , produce and the many other
leaks In every store.
FUR COIFS A PARIS VOGUE.
Beauty and the Beast Meet in the
Latest Hair Arranaetnent.
Paris , Feb. 7. Ueauty and the beast
meet in the newest arrangements In
the dressing of the hair in Paris. The
fur coiffure is now the popular thing
with the women who keep abreast ol
the fashions. It supplements the work
of the "rat" and serves to produce a
pyramidal effect which attracts attetv
tion If nothing else.
The use of furs in the coiffure is an
outgrowth of their adoption in mill !
nery. In the latter oHlco there Is such
a grotesque exaggeration that the millinery
linory was put out of court entirely
whore rational human beings , blossei :
with the sense or proportions , were
Top-heavy fur helmets , hiding the
forehead and the eyebrows , and leav
ing very little of the coiffure visible ,
were extensively worn a few weeks
ago. To such an extreme were those
conceits carried that almost the entire
tire upper part of the head was ox c
Unfinished. Even the blindest devotees
voteos of fashion saw llllle to admire
in this and demanded a change.
The furs themselves had won point
larlty , however , so some genius
evolved the fur coiffure. Now It Ik
the hair and its decorations whiel
play the conspicuous part , while Hit
headgear is less In evidence than form
erly. These bandeaux are winning ,
great favor than did Iho helmets.

Dabbing White on the Nose Is a N.itu
Chicago , Feb. 7. American women
are . only following a common psycho
logical phenomenon when they use
face powder , according to statements
made by Prof. II. G. Weatherly of
Indiana university. Ho makes the
statement In an article on "Raco and
Marriage" In the current number of
the American Journal of Sociology.
Professor Weathorly declares the
women are actuated by the same mo
tives as savages who paint their skin
"Men's Ideals of beauty usually are
found In Iho best typo of what they
tliemsehes are , and what they find
most useful , " he says. "For this rea
son , traits which especially charac
terize a group are often arllllclally ex
aggerated for purpose of ornament.
Dark races blacken the skin. Tall
races Increase the stature by special
footwear. Flat nosed people further
flatten the nose. White women use
face powder. "
