THE COLD WAVE.
T ie blizzard which swept over the
bole country last Thursday and Fri-
day will long be rememliered by those
who felt the severity of its icy breath.
Even the oldest Inhabitant refrained
from quoting precedents and simp-
ly shook ^lis head and shivered.
The resident of the coast country is
more accustomed to protecting himself
from a high than a low temperature,
heuce the physical discomfort experi-
enced Is the more keen when he sud-
denly awakes to the fu< t that the
thermometer is below freezing. Hut
conditions are bad Indeed when no
consolation can be obtained from
them, and therefore some relief is
found in the rarity of the occurrence,
and thogeneral belief thutucold winter
is usually the herald of a healthy spring,
and a bountiful harvest for the cultiva-
tion. When we think of the poor shiv-
ering humanity of tho northern states
we can endure these infrequent cold
snaps with considerable equanimity.
All signs point to tho rapid approach
of tho time when this country, like
Europe, will contain two groat classes,
the landlords and the landless; the
first, few in numbers, but bolding the
key to the fate of the great majority,
who com|KMfo tho latter class. Land is
the only earthly possession that main-
tains its dignity under all the muta-
tions of human affairs. It possesses the
most stable of all values, because
it is the foundation upon which
all values are built, and the very
fountain of human existence. He
who possesses land possesses to that
extent wealth, whoso intrinsic value
none of the varying fortunes of
commerce and finance can affect—a
home, a place wherein to live, wherein
to die. The present financial episode
has had a tendency to impress these
facts upon the public mind, and conse-
quently there is now an unusual de-
mand for land in small quantities.
Get productive acres U you can. It is
the safest possible form of insurance
against possible adversity. To every
young man just starting in life wo
sav, now is the time to act. Tho time
will soon come when such advice

The fight is on In the legislature over
the proposed division of Drazorla coun-
ty, and promises to be a hot one. As
we have before remarked In our col-
umns, all the arguments advanced seem
to point conclusively to tho desirability
of the change. We earnestly hope, in
the name of all that seems righteous
and just, our friends at Alvin and vi-
cinity will be divorced from'“old Bra-
soria" for all time. We note that the
name of the new county is not to bo
Alamo, but Auteroy. However, what’s
in a name? Alamo county by any othor
name will be just as acceptable.
The report comos to Washington
from Shanghai that a party of officers
from the American warship Concord
while on shoro hunting killed a Chi-
naman and were thereupon immediate-
ly seized and spirited away. It is a
sad commentary to make, but It might
be a good idea for the Chinese to por-
mit their captives to hunt in the vicin-
ity of the Japs.

The eccentric mind now has a good
field of action In the fashionable fur
trimmings, und eviilcm-u is plentiful of
its workings. One odd idea also ap-
plies to trimmings of band* of velvot,
or lace, which is often made continu-
ous from the waist line up, and out in a
point to the extreme round of the
sleeve. Buffies are also thus set. This
means that niadamu may not hug her
husband at all, if he be u big fellow, or
she will tear her dress. Fur trimmings
ure, of course, securely fastened to
the gown, and it is difficult to attain a
pleasing result with detachable fur
collars, unless they be big enough
to take rank as capes. This
difficulty Is overcome, however,
in the costume shown herewith,
wherein the b’-diee is garnished with a
chinchilla collar that is rouud in back,
its ends being continod-at the waist.
Of green cloth, the ixidicu Is also
trimmed with velvet and set off with a
white lace and chltfon vent. The
sleeves have turned back cults. The
doth skirt has a white silk front
breadth ornamented with myrtle green
velvet rosettes, and on either side of
this there is a rich embroidery of green
velvet uppliquud to while silk. A tiny
myrtle green velvdt toque completes
the elegant costume.

Crepon has many good points. It comos

shades, when, as a matter of fact, it is
oxtromuly light. Then it lias all the

heavy us it looks would have, and
