NEW YORK. July 19. Bathing suits
are much the same, summer after sum
mer, but it Is a very chilly season In
deed when Dame Fashion does not
manage to Introduce some novelty even
In the garb for the sea.
Among the new features this year is
a bath cloak cf unique design. The
familiar long cape-like affair is to be
succeeded by a semi-fitted cloak of
Turkish toweling or silk. In the bathing
suit itself the changes are less radical.
Among the elect black and dark blue
will continue In favor, to the exclusion
o'f the brighter colors. At Newport
these sombre hues will prevail, relieved
only by a little white in the trimming.
Nevertheless at many of the resorts
and fashionable resorts, too the cos
tume for the beach will show as much
variety as any other feature of the
feminine wardrobe. Heavy silk not
the flimsy and vulgar Japanese Is the
most acceptable material. Suits of this
do not cling so closely when wet, and
dry more satisfactorily. Flannel suits
and suits of bombazine are less ex
pensive, and will be as popular as In
the past. A rather bizarre white flan
nel suit shown In one of the best shops
is made along the regulation lines so
far as blouse and skirt are concerned,
but the application of the trimming is
most unique. This consists of triangu
lar pieces of red silk strung about the
low neck, each one fastened down with
three white buttons. The same idea is
carried out In the skirt trimming.
A cloak, which might well go with
the suit Just described. Is of black silk,
elaborately stitched with white. A
black grosgrain model shows wide lap
els falling from the low neck, and laced
across the bust for the lapels reach to
the waist with narrow white silk cord.
The bodice blouses a little In front, and
has a belt of white. The skirt is laid
in box plaits, and is entirely black. This
is one of the most effective suits I have
seen. The cloak which accompanies it
Is of heavy dark gray toweling, and
has a half-fitting back.
At Newport all the young girls will
wear the plainest sort of bathing suits.
Miss Cynthia Roche has a decidedly
modest one of dark blue, with little or
no trimming save a wide sailor collar
of white, and the other girls of the
younger set are equally sensible. There
is nothing new in shoes for the water,
and few novelties In caps and ker
chiefs. Some of the latter are made already
tied, with the cute little tabs wired to
stand up at all times. Red is still the
favorite, although white with big polka
dots is also seen. A costly fancy suit
exhibited in a shop is of white serge,
the white bordering on cream color,
with elaborate hand-embroidery in
white about the bottom of the skirt,
around the throat and on the short
puffs which answer for sleeves. This
has 'a cap to match. It is of rather a
military shape, and is much embroid
ered. White silk stockings with clocks
go with the outfit, and white canvas
shoes tied with ribbon.
The shirt-waist bathing suit Is the
latest thing for the careful girl or the
extremely modest one. It consists of a
perfectly plain silk or wool shirt-waist,
made full, and with a high collar to
protect the neck. from the rays of the
sun. It may have either long or short
A silk sunbonnet. rubber lined, is also
a pleasing and sensible novelty. This
has a peak well over the face to pro
tect it from summer freckles, which It
sometimes takes two winters to re
move. Pongee is being used this season
for bathing suits, but this material
clings so closely when wet that no wo
man with a shred of modesty would
think of wearing it, Lady Modish in

Doctor No: but don't worry about It,
there are a lot of other people dying

them out. They crawled in between
the siding and there began housekeep
ing in spite of all protests. Heroic
measures were resorted to. Cold water,
hot water, insect poison, bedbug poi
son, rough on rats all were tried in
succession. For twelve hours the bat
tle lasted, the bees even climbing out
into the living rooms to fight more ef
fectively. They did, too. But the pow
er of chemistry finally vanquished them
and the last one was killed unless he
departed to mourn.
IlrxleKt-il liy Flock of Bird.
Not the least queer of a year of
strange events is the rapid multipli
cation of birds in Nebraska City, ac
cording to the editor of the Nebraska
City Weekly. He has taken a bird cen
sus. While not pretending to have
made as accurate count as some might
have done l.e is convinced that the
town has had three times as many
birds as ever before, with a remark
able diminution of sparrows. New
birds, too, have pre-empted the limbs
of the numerous trees in town, birds
that never before sought the city con
fines. It would not be so surprising
perhaps If they were more thick than
usual were It not for the decrease in
sparrows. This Is what puzzles the
editor. For want of a better explana
tion he connects the situation with
the eruption of Pelee and turns the
subject over to subtler minds.
There is an old Shakespearean joke
that is worth the retelling at this time.
A wag, after having witnessed an un
usually villainous performance of
"Hamlet," remarked: "Now is the time
to settle the Shakespeare-Bacon con
troversy. Let the graves of both be
dug up and see which of the two
