Mrs. J. L. Everts' Remarks. At the State W. C. T. U. Convention in San Frnncisco Wednesday Mrs. J. L, Everts of KaHt Santa Cruz, during her remarks upon spiritual progress, quoted the Prophet Kzekiel where he writes up the "pillow sleeves of certain ladies to whom he had taken a violent dislike." Mrs. Everts said during her remarks: "The body is the temple of God and when we defile it we sin. Sin is a barrier between us and God. Therefore we can not make spiritual progress. We can he sinful in dress 88 well as in eating and drinking. F.akiel says in chapter 1.1, verse 18, that there is a woe pronounced upon women who sew pillows to their armholes. I am very much afraid that either the dressmakers or the ones wearing the dressee will soon come under this wo?, for we can hardly pass through a common door without turning side-wise. "When we have our hearts stayed on God it makes little difference to us whether we are in the latest fashion or not. We can afford to be called cranks peculiar people."
