This lengthening of blousas indicates that they have become even more important in the wardrobe than they have been. They follow the lead of dresses in their sleeves and neck lines sleeves are longer and often elaborated and neck lines are higher. There are some three-quarter-length sleeves and many full length, either flaring or gathered into a cuff at the wrist. The flaring sleeves require trimming, and ore brimming over with it.

Or, If they have none of these, they may look to sleeves for hetf. The season puts such emphasis on sleeves, presents them in so many styles and goes to such extremes in their decoration, that they may well assume all the responsibility of providing the only decorative features in even an Important model. In the two dresses for informal afternoon wear, shown below, the use Informal Frocks of georgette sleeves in frocks of crepe or satin, with a happy choice of trimming, nas resulted in practical and pretty models that are not too simple to be interesting. The slip-over style that was such a success in late summer has been carried over and appears in the straight chemise dress, at the left. It has wide sleeves of georgette, finished with rows of figured ribbon, and the same ribbon appears in rows about the dress, below the waistline. A narrow belt, made of satin like the dress. Is an important detail, with Its buckle and eyelets. The model as pictured Is black and white, but there are many color combinations in which It would be effective. The dress at the right is also a straight-line model, with Its front panel lengthened into points that fall below the hem line at the sides. Its short sleeves are lengthened by long, full nndersleeves of georgette that are Peplum Blcuse gathered Into a cuff.

The livelier colors are used for facings and introduced in girdles; a dark blue may have a girdle lined with red, or a black be relieved by one made of clusters of velvet cherries in their own vivid color. Little journey among any representative displays of new fall blouses reveals that few of them complete their good work at the waistline.

YOUNO I'EOPI.E AND ADULT TOPIC World Prohibition. I. Gcd's Judgment Upon Israel (vv. 1-4). I. The sin for which Israel was judged (v. 1). It was drunkenness, which seems to have been a national sin. (See fsa. 5:11, Yl 7:5; Ainos :, S, 1 4:1 ; . 0.) Samaria's position was an enviable one. The whole nation was proud of her. The crown of pride whose glorious beauty had liKn so marked was fading through t'ie blij-luhiii effects of drunkenness. '2.. The instrument by which the punishment was effected (v. "-.'). It was to be by I he strong hand of the Assyrians. The imagery of this verse sltws that this destruction was to be sudden, swift and irresistible. Some of tfio ovils wrought by drunkenness. Just us the tlower severed from the parent stem' dnps and fades, so drunkenness had sapped the vitality from the nation and left it as ji fading chaplet of flowers on the head of a drunkard. (a) Strength is wasted by it (v. 1). "Are overcome with wine." Man's manifold strength, physical, mental and spiritual, is soon mastered by strong drink, (b) Honor brought into the dust. "Shall be trodden under feet" (vv. 1, 3). Just as this proud city was humbled through Intemperance, so does drunkenness bring down into the dust thtsi? high hi educational, social hud business circles, (c) It- despoils beauty (vv. 1, 4), "lUviuty is u fading flower." Beauty soon departs from the form-and spirit of men and women who indulge in the intoxicating cup. (d) Wisdom is turned aside (v. 7). "They have erred through wine and strong drink." A-i a consequence they were groping in darkness instead of walking In the light of the Lord. II. The Lord's Premise to the Remnant (vv. 5. ). Out of this awful darkness shines si ray of brightness, for following the destruction of the proud city the Lord of Hosts is promised for a crown of glory to the remnant of His people. This pointed forward to the coming of the Savior (Zech. 0:13). Their hopes were partially fulfilled at the first coming of the Savior, but the real fulfillment shall be when drunkenness, pride and all unrighteousness shall disappear before the glaring light of the Sun of Righteousuos (Mai. 4:2; I Pet. 5:4). III. The Sinfulness of Judah (vv. 7-10). 1. Drunkenness (v. 7). Judah had also erred through strong drink. liven their priests and prophets had fallen through the blighting effects of wine. It was n violation of Clod's law for a priest to take wine before entering the tabernacle. The drunkards of both Judah and Ephraim are denounced. The message is a fitting one for this day, for the Scriptures declare that no drunkard shall enter the kingdom (I Cor. 5:11; G:10). The awful sin of drunkenness should be denounced in the strongest terms possible by God's servants. 2. Unnamable tilth (v. S)." This description shows a condition which is deplorable indeed. Filth and drunkenness go hand in hand. o. Mockery (vv. 9, 10). In addition to their drunkenness and tilth they scornfully mock God's prophets. These priests had become so hardened by their drunken debauchery that they set at naught Isaiah's instructions and scorned God's messengers. They questioned their authority and gave back the answer of ridicule as if to say, "We are teachers, what do you mean to teach us? Are we babes that have just been weaned? You come to us with your line upon line, line upon line." They were not onl'y unwilling to receive the message, but tired of the" way in which it was delivered. Not being willing to receive the message, they complain of the manner in which it is delivered. The doctrine of salvation by blood alone is not a very popular one: the preaching of the cross is foolishness to some (I Cor. 1 :1S-21 ; 2:14). Men do nor. like God's message because it calls them to make a surrender of their sins. IV. Judah's Punishment, (vv. 11-13). The prophet replies to these drunken scoffers that their very drunken questions should be answered by the Lord in judgment. God had repeatedly offered them rest, but they had as re peatedly refused it. Their scorn and contempt are answered with the bitterest sarcasm. The bloody conqueror would come upon them and cause them to be snared and taken. The Trinity. The Christian teaching of the Trinity Is not, as H. G. Wells calls it, "a stuffed scafecrow of divinity, a mystery protected by conciHar curses." It is not theological hairsplitting.

Arson on Indiana farms has been reduced more than GO per cent during the last five years, it is revealed by records of Newman T. Miller, state fire marshal. In 1015 the number of incendiary fires on Hoosier farms was while last year only 23 incendiary f.res occurred on farms in the state.
