The well dressed woman has found that she does not need muslins

silk she Is at once better groomed, free from the danger of wearing

The dress of violet charmeuso we show you today, on the left, is

The blouse is cut in a deep V which opens over a email, round
yoke of gathered white net. It Is finished at the neck by a broadly
rolling sailor collar. A long Bleeve s fitted over the arm from a low
armhole. This mousquetalre sleeve folds low over the wriBt.
A broad oriental girdle swathes, the waist and Is tied In a wee bow
with one long tasseled end at the upper lino of the girdle in the back.
The skirt Is of round length. It is cut on the bias and folds Into

"The midnight nun" is ono of those
seemingly mysterious natural phenomena,
which exercise a porpctuni charm ovor
tho popular Imagination. Tho northern
part of Scandinavia has acqulrod for -it
self tho distinctive name of tho "Land of
tho Midnight Sun," but tho title should bo
extended to include a complete circuit
of tho earth along tho Arctic circle. Then,
too, tho southern hemisphere has a pre-
clrely similar phenomenon, which occurs
slung tho Antarqtla circle, Including a
portion of Wilkes Land.
Properly speaking, a midnight sun Is
soert but once a year In cither hemisphere.
Confining our attention to tho northern
hemisphere, the midnight sun Is vlslhlo
near tho Arctic circle on the date of the
summer splstlce, which occurs about
Juno 21. at tho time when the nun, In Its
apparent annual circuit of the sky,
reaches Its greatest northern declination,
which means its greatest distance north
of tho equator. This dtstanoe In angu
Inr measure Is about 2311 degrees, which
Is precisely equal to tho Inclination of
the earth's axis of rotation from a pert
pondlcular to the plana of Its orbit around
The Arctla circle Is situated thin same
angular distance (3314 degrees) from the
north pole. When the sun Is directly
over the equator, about March 11, Its, light
reaches simultaneously both poles of tho
earth. As the sun begins to move north?
tyard the light quits the south pole, Which

The other day In a certain city I sent a

When the clothes came back there
came also a big, square, sealed envelope
I opened this en

young woman, "to protect our customers

tine saw I was interested, and con
tinued, "We never send garments home
with the buttons off. Also, we do any i
little darning and mending that should be
done, and all this without charge. Our
business is to please our customers."
In looking over a volume of the last
United fitntos industrial census I find
that they could not call a laundry a fac
tory, so they gave It a class all by 'tself.
A laundry has only one thing to sell,
and that Is service.
You give them a bundle of soiled
clothes, and they send back an artistic
package, cleansed, Ironed, beautified.

They cleanse, wring, dry, Iron and starch
by machinery. No business in the world
has evolved such delicate, sure and ef.

It Is now no special recommendation to

hand." Machines are manufactured that
cart do the work better than the human
hand can. And after all, the machine,
yoy must remember. Is an Invention of a
