Good, big drafts seem to attract the
most attention and yet the perfect

young horses are picked up at good
prices by buyers who want such stuff

MOURNING JEWELRY IN VOGUE
Must by No Means Be Too Ornate
An Instance of Procer Thing
To Be Worn.
It is hard for a girl who likes quiet
mourning to get jewelry that suits her
taste. Most of it is too ornate, or is
bestudded with pearls, or shows too
much of the gold linings.
A dog collar that is being worn by
a girl in the deepest crape is in par
ticularly good style. It is made of
onyx set in gold, but in such a way
that none of the shining metal shows.
The form of the collar is groups of
five oval sections set horizontally one
above the other between square, up
right sections deep enough to hold the
cross pins in place. The horizontal
parts are pointed at each end and
about the size of au ordiuary cuff pin.
This collar fits closely about the
throat and can be worn on the outside
of the gown or on the bare neck. In
having such an ornament made to or
der the number of the cress pins can
be varied to suit the length of the

No trimming is used, no pleats are
present. The neck line is slightly
low, the sleeves reach to the three
quarter mark. Around the neck and
sleeve edge there appears the merest
line of plain velvet as a finish. This
is elegant si.nplicity; and. although
chiffon is not easy to handle, it will
be found less difficult because of this

Now You Know What Whisky Really Is
THE question "what is whisky"
finally has been answered offi
cially and President Toft's decision
has been formulated in a set of regula
tions prepared by the pure food board
of the department of agriculture.
"Weary Willie." when he meets
"Lazy Tom" along the roadside and
stops to take a swig out of his bottle,
will not care whether it is whisky ac
cording to the presidential ruling or
not. just as long as it tastes like the
real stuff and has the same effect, but
the man who buys It In bottles or
over the bar can see the government
label which will hereafter be found
on all packages.
In brief, the regulations declare
that all unmixed spirits distilled from
grain, prepared in the customary
ways, are entitled to the name
"whisky" without qualification. Blend
ed whisky must be labeled as such.
Beau Brummel Collects Old
THE maids and butlers of Washing
ton's finest residential districts are
well trained, but sometimes even they
fail to discriminate. A story is told
of a milkman who had a great deal
of trouble in collecting his bills at a
certain aristocratic house. The lady
of fashion put him off over and over
again and absolutely refused to see
bim in person as a milkman.
Money is as essential in dispensing
the lacteal fluid as in other lines of
business, so the milkman resorted to
strategy. A few days after his latest

Thus was oratory martyred in the
United States senate.
The term "whisky," however, is re
stricted to distillates from grain, and
under the regulations distillates from
other substances, if labeled "whisky,"
are mlsbranded and the person guilty
of misbranding may be prosecuted.
The regulation follows:
"Under the food and drugs act of

if not potable strength and not less
than 80 proof, are entitled to the

"If the proof be less than 80. that
Is. If more water be added, the actual
proof must be stated upon the label
and this requirement applied as well
to blends and compounds of whisky.
