Both plaited bodice and skirt are of white louisine dotted with blue and black spots. The latter opens over a tablier composed of three flounces of light blue mousseline de sole. The decolletage is prettily draped with a fichu of this mousseline de sole, edged with a lace ruffle and caught up a little on the left with a stress buckle. FOR HER HAII~ Milady of fashion can select from an infinite variety of combs and orna- ments for her hair, even without go- lug into any of the precious metals. There is the ever l~andsome and ever useful shell, amber, Which is beautiful with some tresses--not least frequent- ly with blonde. Combs of amber with waved tops of lovely design are some- times ornamented with rhinestones set in sterling silver. The combs of tor- toise shell have fos~ none of their.pop- ularity. Among the fads of the mo- ment are hair clasps, or barrettes, of plain or chased matt gold A novelty is the stout hairpins with Jeweled heads. These come either singly or in pairs and are used at thee back of the head, crossed, if desired, and, as an excuse for their existence, they are supposed to keep stray short hairs in order. Verily, if many more of these dainty devices are brought into daily use, we shall soon have as many differ- ent pins and combs to support our coif- fure as the Japanese maiden herself, with her innumerable fanciful hair ornaments. These Jeweled hairpins are, however, extremely pretty Par- ticularly effective is a branch of mis- tletoe with berry and leaves all done in miniature, the finest rhinestones be- ing used, the pine itself being of sterling silver.

Com- plete preparations are being made for the most successful assemblage the Chaut'tuqua hasever known. Attention is called to the following points: The opportunity presented at Boul- der for health, recreation, entertain- meat and instruction.

The Great Western Chautauqua at Boulder is one of the mos~ attractive snmnler resorts in existence for per- sons who desire to secure res and rec- reation, acquire health, and a~ the same time enjoy the advantages of a season's program scarcely equaled for variety and merit. The program not only includes all the school courses es- sentiai to teachers, but it embraces Sl~.~ial branches and departments, clul~s, councils, exquisite music, art, Bible addresses, out-door lectures, mountain excursions, and popular en- tertainments in the great auditorium, which are excelled in interest nowhere in the world. Good tousle, magnificent lectures, de- lightful entertainments, coupled with plenty of well-cooked food. comfort- able accommodations.and pure moun- tain air and exercise, ought to satisfy any ordinary mortal. All these tllings, and more, are promised at the Chau- tatlqua. The associations of the camp ground are worth as much as all other iliducements in this locality.

The program of the Boulder Assm* bly is appreachlng completion, al- though the committee will leave a few places open until the last for special talent. The object this year is to pre- sent a variety and to make the general entertainments instructive and pleas- ing. The outlook is more than satis- factory In all departments of the Chau- tauqua to surpass in interest those of former years, as experience has dem- onstrated the particular wants of pa- trons who seek the Rocky Mountains for rest, entertainment or instruction The Boulder Assembly differs in sev- eral respects from any other in the United States. At the same time its standard seeks to be the highest and is advancing each year.

Charles Rivers Wilson, president of the Grand Trunk Railroad, has Just come to the United States for a short visit. Sir Charles' last transatlantic voyage was made a few years ago for the purpose of investigating the affairs of the road of which he is the head. That was the second time he visited America. .The occasion of his first trip a year previously was as repre- sentative of the European stockhold- ers of the Central Pacific Road, The total foreign interest, $52,000,000, had CHARLES R. WILSON. been intrusted to his care. Until re- cently Sir Charles Rivers Wilson was comptroller general of the national debt of Great Britain. In this capac- Ity he had charge of 240,000,000. The income of this sum was entirely in his control for investment, and his management of the important office of comptroller was in all way~,excellent. This London financier is not unknown to American men of affairs. Although somewhat unlike the financial leaders of New York and Chicago in personal methods, he is yet a very shrewd and ~ccute manipulator of capital. It was ue who straightened out the famous Egyptian financial t~.ugle of 1876. His present visit is for the purpose of try- ~ng to prevent the floating of the Rue- dan-Chinese loan in this country. An Ancient Village School, Pocahontas. Ill. the other day cele- orated a semi-centennial celebration commemorative of the erection ~in 1851 of the village school house, still ~tanding and in excellent condition [or a frame building half a century ~ld. The structure was "built before J.he days of public schools in that sec- tion of the country, and was conse- Quently a private enterprise at the POCAHONTAS ACADEMY. start. Later the building was turned over to the public, and for many years retained its old name of Pocahontas Academy. The first name of the vil- lage for Amity, and by some of the "oldest inhabitants" the school was called Amity Academy. A few pre- ferred the name Hickory Grove Acad- emy, because of the fact that for sev- eral years the official name of the town was Hickory Grove, but ma- JoriUes ruled in those days, and the majority, among whom ware the foun- ders of the school, gave it the name by which It was known most widely and longest~Pocahontas Academy. ~t will be observed that all insisted that the school should be called an acade- my. Pocahontas is now but a small place with a few hundred inhabitants, and it was much smaller in the early 50s. Pocahontas is in Bond, one of the original five counties of Illinois, and on the ~ancialia railroad, about forty miles from St. Louis. ~anama Canal for .Sale to U'. It is reported from Washington that President Hutin of the Panama Canal company has made a formal tender of the canal, with all rights and conces- sions, to this government unlncum- bared by any provisions for ]olnt ownership. Heretofore all proposi- tions for the transfer of the Panama canal eontemplated making this gov- ernment a large stockhol, der in the enterprise without giving it actual sovereignty over the water way, which, of course, could not bs seriously en- tertained by Congress. It .is now re- ported, however, that the government of Colombia, through its minister at Washington, has offered to permit the Panama company to transfer its rights to the United Statbs, which leaves the way open for a direct bona fide sale of all property and rights. Foreign ~ond~ ~,r In.Oe,rfmenf, r. The recent action of American capi- talists in taking $50,000,000 of the new British war bonds gives timely interest to the article by Prof. Woolsey, in the May Forum, in which he discusses the risks in all'kinds of foreign bonds. He points out the radical differences be- tween government bonds and private loans. A government bond has no collateral behind it--no property on which the creditor may levy 9n case of default. The security of such a loan depends upon the credit and the good faith of the state that borrows Nor can the bondholder proceed sin- gle-handed against his debtor by Ju- dicial methods. His only "redress is through the diplomatic interference of his government. If he be a small and uninfluential holder he may, have to wait long before he can set the gov- ernmental machinery to work. As a matter of fact, all government bonds of all countries are purchased out of pure patriotism--nothing else. The bonds sold in this country go to British residents here anxious to re- lieve the country to which they owe allegiance. In other words, the bonds were taken by branches of British banks doing business in the United States. Liquid Air Fan l*lofor. The novel motor for driving a ven- tilating fan shown below has recently been designed by Oscar Patric Oster- gren. The inventor states that the ob- jects of the invention are the utiliza- tion of liquid air as a motive fluid for operating a rotary fan and the distri- bution of the ca- p o r i z e d liquid about the room for cooling purpos- es by means of the fan blades. The :lobe at the top of the apparatus is used as a storage reservoir for the liquid, and may be filled through a filling plug, or, in cases where a num- ber of fans are used in one building, the supply may be obtained from a central reservoir. To set the fan in motion the valve underneath the reservoir is opened when the liquid will pass down through the pipes, vaporizing by absorbing heat from the atmosphere. The products of the vaporization will rise through the return cell to the top of the reservoir, where the pressure is utilized to force the liquid continuous- ly into the discharge pipe, in addition to driving the fan. This latter result is accomplished by allowing the com- pressed vapor to pass downward through the central tube to a small turbine Just above the fan blades, ~' where its force is expended against the wings. Asthe vapor is of a very low :' temperature it is desirable to utilize it after it leaves the turbine for cooling the room, and this is accomplished by extending the outlet pipes into the arms carrying the fan blades, where the air is discharged in advance of the blades, being driven about by the fan and mixed with the warmer air of the room.

In Mexico boys are early taught to carry heavy loads in this manner, huge water Jars being balanced with Wonderful skill. In many Mexican localities months and sometimes ygars go by without a drop of rain, and all the water the people use haste be drawn from wells and often carried long distances.
