THE STICKER'S WOMAN'S DEPARTMENT
Fashions and Fancies of the present time as prepared for the Women
of Schulenburg, Texas, and Surrounding Territory.
6y Mary Graham Bonner
It was a day near! the end of winter.
"Well, Mrs. Aoudad, what have , you
♦o My for yourself?"
"I am well, I thank you," said Mrs.
"Is that all you have to say for your-
aeJf7" said Mr. Aoudad again, looking
very much surprised.
Tliai's about all," said Mrs. Aoudad,
wftb a half smile to herself.
"Very ^strange," said Mr.. Aoudad,
"Very strange indeed."
"Why?" asked Mrs. Aoudad.
-Wen, it does seem to me as though
jwa might have something else to say.
■om? kind words to address to your
dtear and loving mate."
"Oh, ho," said Mrs. Aoudad, "hut
yon didn't ask me what I had to say
to you, hut what I had to say for my-
self- I thought you meant that you
"wanted to know what I had to say for
Myself, about myself in short."
"No, I didn't mean that," said Mr.
Acmdad, "though of course I am de-
lighted to know that your state of
fefalth is good."
"My health isn't a state," feaid Mrs.
Aoudad. Neither is it a country, nor
b It a eivy, nor yet a zoo. It's not a
state at all. There are no towns in it."
"I didn't mean that sort of a state,"
Mr. Aoudad. '•
at do you want me to say?"
SVell, t thought you might care to
what a fine-looking chap I am, and
*11 such things."
"I agree to all that," said Mrs. Aou-

Art in Fashion
Is the Demand
Two women were discussing the
subject of clothes. Said one:
"Do you dress to please yourself
or to please others?"
"Why, to please others, of course,"
was the reply.
The questioner smiled. „
"Would you mind taking off that
shirtwaist?" she said. "I have always
The silence which ensued was quite
thick enough to feel.
Perhaps, writes a prominent fashion
correspondent, this little story illus-
trates the futility of even attempting
to please. Most of us, I am sure, dress
the best we can with the means at
hand—tbose means in the bank and
those thfc manufacturers create. Now
and then one comes across those radi-
ant persons who not only dress to
please themselves but succeed in
pleasing every one else as well.
.All Seek the Picturesque.
I know of no other word with which
to describe the fashions of the hour
than picturesque. To be picturesque
seems to be the aim of all who make
and those who wear feminine apparel
Certainly there is a quaintness and
a charm about present moment modes
which warrants the term. For in-
stance, a certain little pale pink or-
gandie just th^tint of a rose is band-
ed together in a series of lace puffs
made by gathering a narrow band of
Insertion along the top and bottom
edges and placing the puffs between
spaces in the organdie.
Across the front there is drawn a
little apron of the organdie likewise
banded with these same quaint puffs

tom is snug and smart.
and at one corner having a small
pocket fashioned of the lace and
tipped at the top with a deep red rose
and a blue ribbon. The bodice has a
fichu, quaint little sleeves of lace and
organdie puffed like the skirt, and the
blue ribbon and red rose appear co-
quettishly again at the side of the
fichu where it crosses. The charming
frock Is not In the least fantastic or
bizarre but picturesque to the last de-
gree and is the sort of thing a young
woman would affect for her gayest
It begins to look as if the waist is

chic, fascinating and neat. It com-

waistline, I mean, for the newest
creations show not only no line where
one's waist is but many gowns and
blouses have capes of lace or accordi-
on-plaided chiffon set over the shoul-
ders, and entirely covering the upper
part of the figure. This effect is
achieved in a gown of black Spanish
lace, the skirt of which has several
lace flounces placed, one above ,the
other on a foundation of black satin.
A deep girdle of burnt orange and sil-
ver brocade form what there is of the
bodice and a tight cape of the lace
buttons snugly around the neck and
fits as smoothly 'as a cap over the
shoulders. The lower edge falls over
the ribbon girdle in a floating panel

blouse has just arrived from over-
seas In a white accordion-plaited chif-
fon blouse of which the lower part Is

Ion from neck to waistline hiding the
absence of other sleeves, as this curi-
ous arrangement seems to make sleeve
as well as bodice., The same thing
appears again in a flesh pink georgette

several rows of palest pink ostrich
The fashion for veiling one's self
in tulle as was done so much last
year is more noticeable than ever. It
is well to note that the soft wood
brown shades have almost superseded
the blues of the past season.
SAND AND TAN TONES
As companion to the brown shades
destined for early fall and winter
wear sand and tan tones are often
seen. There are, by the way, several
new shades—falson brown, which has
a reddish cast; tison, which Is rust
red; peace blue and jade; Corinthe
and Adriatic, also blues. The combina-
tion of brown and green is striking
and unusual enough to please the
most ardent searcher after novel ef-
fect. It Is deftly done by placing
strips of a jade green along a -brown
background and veiling the green
strips with a thin fabric of brown or
a heavy open mesh braid, through
which the green Is flecked.
White and marigold yellow also
present a new color combination of
which the possibilities are limitless.
We learn that London is more inter-
ested just now In clothes for the de-
butantes than in all else—that is,
London's smart world, for there are
the accumulated debutantes of the
past five years to be presented at this
year's drawing rooms, since tffe Eng-
lish king and queen held no social
gatherings during the war.
Because of the vast number of
young girls to appear before their
majesties the regulation court cos-
tume with its long, long train, veil
and Prince of Wales feathers will not
be required this season at the several
drawing rooms, but the London mak-
ers are creating wonderful afternoon
costumes. Hence these lighter col-
ored effects such as the vogue of
marigold and white—so closely are we
in this country In touch with matters
over there that It Is only natural that
the mode of their moments should
reach us, too.
War Over Short Skirts and Sleeves.
Paris continues to wear its skirts
and sleeves just as short as possible,
and consequently we are having a gay
little dressmakers' war in this land as
to just the length for American skirts,
for the "ten Inches from the floor" rule
has quite as many followers as has
the five-Inch adherents.
A brief survey shows that American
toilet articles, in comparison with
those of other countries, occupy a good
position on the Swedish market.
Self-condemnation with its allied
thoughts and emotior t has been
productive of a far greater loss in
initiative, in will-power, and of a
far greater degree of lowered vi-
tality, both mental and physical,
than any of us have perhaps real-
ized.—Ralph Waldo Trine.

Beyond the steel and the fire
Gleams the old desire.
War has not taken wonder away,
More poignant where its lightnings play
The appeal of Beauty's lonely cry!
I shall go on dreaming till I die.
I see wind-burnished coin-bright towns,
And roads that shine across the downs;
A dusk of forest and a line
Of light that silvers the design;
Always the shadowed and the bright,
A halo for the blackest night!
—Islands where I have never been;
The rainbow toppling down the green
Of tilted seas that rake a ship;
The molten lava streams that slip
From fiery crater-rims and fill
The dark with rose and daffodil;
Lakes, mountain-hid and spiritual;
The undiscovered waterfall
Like a white feather through the trees.
The undiscovered bird in these
Singing, always alone, alone,
The lovely voice of the unknown.
This is Romance chameleon-clad
That called me when I was a lad,
That calls me now to follow well
Through blighted Picardy to hell,
Through hell to some elusive bliss
Of new adventure after this;
To follow without asking why;
So you will know, if I must die
Upon this last and strangest quest,
It did not differ from the rest
In simple wonder dark and bright
A halo for the darkest night;
And freedom like the unknown bird
Was a wild voice I fought to hear!
These words, to you, my very dear.
Beyond the steel and the fire
Gleams the old desire.
—Grace Hazard Conkling, in the Atlantic.
Immigration Loss Blamed
For Present Shortage of
Labor in United States
If every soldier were back on his
old job the country would -still be
4,000,000 short of its normal number of
workers due to the loss of immigration
the last four years; if industry does
not quickly develop some means for
overcoming this shortage it will be ser-
iously handicapped in adjusting itself
to new conditions, say officials of the
United States training service of the.
department of labor.
They point out that the country has
gone without tts normal supply of
peace-time commodities for years and
now It must replenish freely. Fur-
thermore Europe has lost millions of
men and tens of billions of property
In the devastated regions must be
made good. It is urged that to meet
this extraordinary situation the work-
ers in factories and shops must be
assisted by increasing their skill and
interest in their work. The estimat-
ed shortage in this country of 700,-
000 houses is cited as showing how
far the nation is behind normal produc-
Training courses In the industrial
plants, conducted at the employer's
expense, ^are advocated as one of the
practical means of putting Industry
on a normal footing. More than '350
firms have, already instituted courses
of this sort and according to reports
received by the training service, have
benefited in'better prqduction and re-
duced turnover. The workers on the
other hand have Increased their skill
and broadened their knowledge of their
Plan to Make Safe Grade
Crossings and Curves for
Vehicles and Occupants
To abolish the danger of grade
crossings without abolishing the cross-
ing, is the object of the road commis-
sioner of one of the Southern states.
He suggests a strip of road running
for about 100 yards alongside the rail-
way track and joined to the highway
by a broad curve, well banked, so that
a driver, on approaching the tracks
and suddenly becoming aware of an
oncoming train, could swerve to the
right and avoid a smash.
Another road improvement has been
put into effect in some parts of Cali-
fornia where the roads climb steep
hills in long ziz-zags. At the sharp
angles where the zig-zags meet,
large circles of road have been cut,
outside the angle, so that a car com-
ing down the mountains at high speed
can swing around the circle and pro-
ceed on its downward path without
the danger of making a sharp turn.
A car coming up the mountain makes
a similar swing around and thus avoids
the strain on its steering gear involved
in making a turn at an acute angle
when its engine is already ^trained
to the uttermost.
