"ARIET Y—and here we hare it—in all the latest and most-approved styles of Fine
Millintry. The dictum of Paris has been accepted. Her thoughts, developed
by American milliners, stand forth in sumptuous Hats. Not an imported model
in the lot—but copies so exact that a Parisian milliner would lay claim to many.
It is the “Imported” Hat without the imported price—prices ARE surprisingly low. The
color scene of the season will be—brown in all its shades from a rich chestnut hue to a
tint almost as light as champagne—terra cotta—the orange shades and the plum and
mulberry reds. These Hats will all be on display at our formal Fall Opening, which
will be announced soon. At the present time we have the very latest styles in early fall
Ready-to-Wear Hats in all fhe various popular colors. To every woman in Orange and
vicinity we press the invitation to visit our store—try on the millinery and make your-
self thoroughly acqqainted with the styles. Remember this is all new stock—not an old
article in the store.

SKELETON IN A TREE.
It is a Mountain Goat’s, But Is a Cu-
St. Louis, Sept. 22.—A curious freak
of nature is exhibited in tbe Idaho
department of the Palace of Min'S,
and Metallurgy, at the World’s Fair.
It is a ram’s t,kull and horns, imbedded
deeply In the trunk of a tree. One
horn projects into the air, but of the
skull and tbe other horn only the up-
per surface Is visible, all the rest be-
ing enclosed within the solid wood.
The section of trunk displayed has
been split down the center, and when
the expoaed surface, at the rear, rep-
resenting the very heart of the tree,
is examined, the tip of the burled
horn and a corner of the skull are
seen to protrude through It
The tree of which this Is a por-
tion was a white pine, growing on the
middle fork of the Salmon riven, about
forty miles in a direct line from Sum-
mit City, Idaho. The horns, which
are easily identifiable as belonging to
the male of the mountain sheep, were
found at a point nine feet from the
ground. Loots! experts, by counting
the rings of tbe horns and the circles
of yearly growth In the log, have ar-
rived at the conclusion that the aheep
had lived for more than a century
when It descended or ascended Into
Its living grave, and that the tree
itself was about twenty or twenty-five
years old at the time, which must
tmve been eighty or ninety year* ago.
. Many conflicting stories have been
advanced to account for this curious
find. Some maintain that the animal
must have been carried into the tree
on a snowslide from a higher part of
the mountin. Others advance the hy-
pothesis that a freshet was responsi-
ble for the freak, the tree having ben
found near the shores of a creek. The
ram must have fallen or leaped
agalnat the tree so violently that one
of Its horns became too deeply Im-
bedded for It to extricate ft. especial-
ly as It was too far from the ground
to obtain a foothold; and It then re-
mained suspended In the air alive un-
til It died of starvation or succumbed
to the attacks of birds of prey.
•t tw Where the specimen was
found was so far remote that It tin "
necessary tp pack It cm horseback for
fifty miles along the devious m
tain trails in order to get it to a wa-
month the weather has been highly fa-
vorable for harvesting and threshing.
If weather conditions remain as at
present the crop will he harvested and
marketed a fortnight earlier this year
than was that of 1903.
Captain Davis of the tug Sealy will
run an excursion tomorrow to the Cow
Bayou Canal and Irrigation company’s
pumping plant. This Is aXrlp d about
thirty miles and will give the excur-
sionists the opportunity of seeing this
plant and the vast rice fields. There
Is excellent fishing at the bayou and
It will be well worth the^tlme and
money spent to go. Boat leaves at (
