STRAW hat are tabooed today that Is, If you're a man.
From bow on, no matter how cherished the possession of a
Panama or any of lta kin may be, you must place it carefully away,
friends, for another date. Around our Grain eicbange this morn
ing things were fairly pacific. No gay head gears were torn In strips, as
la their yearly fate in Chicago, but It Is of note that a few thoughtless
Straws that entered farorlte' downtown haunts this morning found a way
of hiding themselTes, to be called for snrreptlously at a later date.
"Dob" Rutledge of the Union Pacific headquarters left his home dar
ingly this morning looking his beet In a lovely Panama. Mrs. Rutledga
reminded him that It was September 1, and "Dob's"' answer was, "Not on
your life; we are going to have hot weather yet." "Dad" Weaver was
greeting his friends at 9 a. m. In a good looking straw hat Just as though
It were July 1, and a few strays were found around the newspaper offices.
There might have been a few less here had it been Saturday rather than
Mr. Robert Burns remembered the day and sallied forth with a brand
new felt Ills straw he claims had bad a couple of rough voyages recently,
otherwise It would have been In evidence this morning. Mr. A. B. Warren
discarded bis straw hat several days ago, unmindful of the date because
of the chilly weather.
Defying conventionalities, Messru. T. M. Orr, A. C. Wakeley, Prank Wal
ters and Sam North donned straws.

teachers, she said, have held entertain

Some of the school have warm lunheti
only on certain days of the week. Others
have them every day. In any case sev
eral girls are selected to take charge ol
serving food and washing up the dishes
each time. Boys are made monitors of tht
cooking utensils and put them away in
a box with a hinged door after each
meal. Thus the lunches serve the doubl
purpose of nourishing the bodies and
teaching the children useful accomplish

Advices from New Tork are to the
effect that the fall fashions, includ

and that they are stunners.
In a short time madam's beet
friend, male or female, will not be
able to recognise her. She will be
garbed In a coat with a huge fur col
lar that will hide her faco up as far
as her nose, and will wear short,
voluminous skirts, reaching but a
few, a very few, Inches below the
knees. She must show the tops of
her boots this season, and they're
making the boots very high.
Rainbow Pigeon Ornament
If madam wants to be in the best
of form she niuBt buy . a rainbow
pigeon and carry it on her wrist.
This will mean that, since It would
be rather awkward to ask the pigeon
to move every time she wants to con
sult the wrist watch she will have to
dispense with this ornament.
Instead, she will wear an ankle
watch. It's a rather perilous pro
cedure, consulting an ankle watch
while walking, so the kind Parisian
dressmakers are sending over some
divided skirts. They're something

that a majority of the women will
have to catch hold of a policeman or
a lamp post to see what time it is.
Charles Kursman, an Importer,
Just returned from France, describes
soma novelties in the autumn fash
Ions for women, among them being
high-top boots with a dainty gold
watch resting on the ankle.
The Silhouette Skirt
The silhouette skirt, shortor and
wider than ever, will , prevail, and
the J off re wrap, - which takes its
nam from France's war hero, will
soon be displayed in the shop win
dows. Hosiery is to be the gayest,
the ultra violet rays to predominate.
"The skirts are to be shorter and
very much wider," said Mr. Kurs
man. "They will be worn with
high, fancy boots and varl-colored ,
"The high hats will be pulled
down forward over the eyes. j
