W« used to wait for the arriY»l of spring or for signs thut it was within hailing distance beforr we clothed our heads in hats that take no thought of winter, even in belo\Y-zero weather. But,a new order of th'nps has come to pass and now -we iaUulge ourselves In hats that herald the spring and go out to meet it while it is yet afar off--in Northern climates. They are not spring hats and they are, not winter hats, Thev are cheerful hats with a thought of summer in them, but substantial enough to braTe the snows of late winter. Here are three of these smart hats that are minded to turn their allegt- tnce from winter to spring and pin their faith to its' coming soon. They have satin crowns and brims of a braid which is variously called "chenille," "dUterpiliar"' and "curpct" braid. - "Caterpillar" fits it best. It Is o fuzzy, substantial looking am! soft braid', that looks wonderfully -\vel5 with satin. It is shown in all the lovely and soft spring colors. These Itats are usually laced with, crepe georgette, and their trimmings are glazed or lacquered Cowers and fruits. Braids that have heretofore been used for spring-summer hats are brought into service for' the dymlsea- son by covering then* with a hard iacquer which pives thVm a'bJgh, hard Inster or polish. For February and March very bright red cats--a cherry red--are made of tlie?*- braids. Gior- ries are a favoritc'trinjming for them, too. Then there are small all blacfe turbans made of- "pcueht leather"-- that is millinery patent leather in tbe form of braid or of millinery bcoltls lacquered or varnished Into the most lnstroos surfaces. Tbeac small, smart, brilliant hats are for ray dime find look quite equal to meeting any emergency. Nearly always they are in all black, trimmed with small ribbon ornaments or little wings. These are also lacquered and will defy the strongest March wind that blows to disarrange a .single feather In them. / ' S To Briflhten Dull TlnU. Neutral colors are so popular 'at present" that the brunette.who toofc joy In tbe bright shades, thgt wore made for her peach-bloom cheefca feels somewhat slighted. For her, however, is the trick of livening the prevailing dullness by linings of striking brilliancy or of adding some bright touch to relifrve the otherwise somber effect of the costume. A waistcoat of snk or of embroidered leather 1£ ft means to this end, but the woman who catches at such sartorial straws must be irons to choose n style that Is becoming. The "grandc mademoiselle" variety, for trample, with its bouffant skirt and military sash, is only for her of enderest silhouette. boys who have lost their sight arc being re-educated. The extent to which other senses can be trained to replace vision explains the eagerness of the Canadians to tske up civil life. Boxing Is possible for the men by the use of little bells on the wrists .of the gloves, differently toued for the right and left bands. Hearing becomes BO keen tint It 1» easy for the men to Judge the distance, and follow the motions of their sparring partners--so easy, in fact, that spectators cannot be convinced the boxers are blind. The Canadian boya whose re-edtrea- tk)o has been arranged for at St Don- atan's by the military hospitals commission not only learn n new occupation, but through training regain self- confidence, tod-.ft firm grasp on the n e w life. - · FAMOUS OARSMAN IS KILLED Captain H of Land, One of Beet-Known Englteh Athlete* Meet* Derth Franc*."

Foundztlon for Health and of Permanent importance In Keeping Sol* dler in Condition. Thaf the valne of athletics "In improving mental and physical conditions of all men from the standpoint of military service is appreciated by English as well as United States government officials is shown by the following statement by Brig, Gen. W1I-- dred A. White after several years of observation on the western front: "When the athlete has gone to the' front . his place in athletic ranks should he'immediately filled. Sport Is the foundation for health, and too much emphnsis cannot be laid upon its benefits nnd necessity. Athletics are of paramount importance in keeping the soldier 'fit, and the same in true of the man who must be prepared to become a soldier. "The soldierly qualities developed are many. Discipline is encouraged, itmsmuch as discipline is the very essence of team play. Quldtness of decision, and speed and agility are not to be overlooked, and what cricket and football do for tho Englishman, baseball and track athletics do for' the American."
