Stunning Gowns Are Worn.
It Is rather an odd clrcumstnnc
that male designers are fast supplant
Ing women In the architecture of cos
tunics for the fair sex. Where gowns
of n distinct and new typo are requlr
cd It Is ten to one that a man will b
called In to create the style or els
pass judgment. The same rule ap
tiles to the creation of styles for the-
Urlcul productions , Ono of the latest
( xiunplos of the "male inaunor" Is an
Hogelher convulsing farce by Clydo
'Itch called "Tho Hluo Mouse , " which
oines to the Norfolk Auditorium Tues-
lay night. Mr. Fitch veldoin falls to
; lve us prettily gowned women and
ils latest piny Is not an exception.
He begins his riot of new-fangled
tries with "The Bltio Mouso" herself.
Mr. Fitch had fairly definite Ideas of
vhat the character , a dancer , should
vetir , but ho frankly expressed his In-
blllty to properly clothe the young
lerfion. Tills wna not duo to the fact
hat "Tho Hluo Mouso" dances In the

Melvlllo Ellin , who han boon scon In
audevllle In a plnnologuo , came to
he rescue , and has designed every
ostumo BOOH In the play. This , how-
n-er , was not his first experience ,
' 'or several seasons Mr. Ellis has trnv
led abroad for the purpose of absorb-
ng French ideas of dress In order to
ncorpornto the newest and prettiest
'ffocts ' In designs for the American
Inge. Three seasons ago 1m designed
. stunning gown for Louise Gunning ,
ho actress , and In some way the fact
caked out. One of the largest and
nest fashionable- dry goods firms of
ilnnhatlan thereupon made Mr. Ellis
in offer to become a sort of consulting
leslgner and , ever since , ho has acted
n this capacity.
For "The Hluo Mouso" Mr. Ellis has
reated several styles that will not bo
llsplnyed by this Now York firm until
lext year. This style Is shown In a
own worn by Miss Gertrude Hit/ . It
s a gown of pale blue cloth. The tiny
V-shaped yoke is of net and the collar
shows a touch of pale blue In a small
jew at the front. The gown Is cut
indor bolh arms , nnd all Ihe way
low n both sides of Iho skirt is a line
of satin covered billions and braid
oops. The plain , long sleeve is piped
and bulloned from wrist to elbow.

Game Fish Into River.
Looking as happy as a school boy at
he beginning of his annual vacation ,
Governor C. II. Aldrlch stopped off In
Norfolk Saturday afternoon for about
Ifteen mlmitos. The governor was en-
ronlo lo Valentine , where he will
spend a few days fishing. The gov-
rnor is the guest of deputy fish War
dens Miller and Clarkson and was ac
companied by W. J. O'Brien , the fish
expert. Deputy game Warden A. F.
Stearns and Hurt Mnpes met the fish
jar al the Junction and after rccelv-
ng a can of fine bass , containing
about seventy-five fish , and four cans
of catfish , containing from fifty to sev
enty-five fish each , the Norfolk men
were given permission to place a hoop-
net below the mill dam and transfer
all game fish to the upper part of the
river. With this permission Norfolk
sportsmen believe the upper part of
: he Northfork , which has proven 'a
failure as far as fishing Is concerned ,
will soon afford some fine sport. The
fish were deposited near the Country
club house and north of the club
W. L. Dowling of Madison had a
conference with the governor on 1m
portant mailers , but what the subject
of this conference was Mr. Dowllng
did not divulge to friends.
The governor had just finished
luncheon when visited by the Norfolk
men , and from an inspection of the
car , It was easily seen that the gov
ernor is faring very well. The car is
well equipped and affords much com
fort to the traveler.

FIRE IN RUBBISH HEAP.
Gasoline Stove Starts Blaze That
Keeps Firemen Guessing Some.
A gasoline steve which exploded at
10 o'clock Sunday morning In the Fred
Phillips home , 100 Soulh First slreet ,
nnd threnlened for a lime to set fire

partment three hours of strenuous
work early Monday morning when It
was discovered that the burning gnso-
Ine , which had been thrown on top of
Ihe river embankment Immediately
south of Ihe pumping station , had
started a serious fire among heaps of
rubbish thrown there.
Recently the city had ordered much
rock and stone thrown on lop of this
refuse pile , and , being so well cov
ered , it gave Fire Chiefs Green and
Nenow much concern as to how the
fire could bo extinguished.
Immediately after the gasoline stove
had exploded in the Phillips home ,
Mr. Phillips , with the aid of Engineer
Christian of the pumping station , car
ried out the stove covered with burnIng -
Ing gasoline and throw It over the em
bankment. Mr , Phillips received slight
burns about the hands.
Early Monday morning the smoke
from the burning rubbish was so dense
and took on such a serious aspect that
Fire Chief Green caused the fire sig
nal to bo sounded. One stream of wa
ter was kept going on the rocks on
which the firemen scrambled , endeav
oring to discover the fire.
President A. W. Finkhouse of hose
company No. 3 became suddenly ill
while at work at the nozzle and later
found It necessary to go home. The
fire was not pronounced extinguished
until after 9 o'clock. The firemen
commenced work before 7.
