";· 'MONDAY, MAT 27, THE DAILY COURIER. CONNEULBVEUUE, PA. PAGE FTVTB. Afternoon Frock of Two Materials The path of designers, who are always looking for something new and beautiful, has been made much easier . than usual this season. Contributions of two materials, or two kinds of one material, in a single garment account lor It. The spring and summer styles ·were inaugurated by displays that featured these contributions nod we have benefited by them iii several ·ways--in inexpensive and original frocks that are attractive, and In remodeled dresses that double the length of service at at least one of the fabrics used In them. The styles never favored the remodeling of frocks more than they do now. Usually a sneer material like chiffon cloth, georgette crepe, voile or net IK made up with a heavier goods anil the refinement of these sheer fabrics lends tone to others as familiar and commonplace as serge or gingham. This makes them an Immensely vain- able resource of the professional and the home dressmaker. There is no «nd to the ways In which materials bave been combined in coats frocks. Voile and gingham, georgette and satin, chiffon cloth and Hunt woolens have proved so successful that they promise a long reign of combinations In the realm ol fashions. The afternoon gown pictured here ehows how well suited to each other satin and georgette are In fashioning · lovely and simple frock.. One is as Important as the other in the design; balf the skirt Is of satin and half ol crepe and their honors are even tu the bodice also. The sleeves are of crepo with dee'p cuffs of satin. Wherever the two materials are brought together they aro joined by a baud of embroidery in a scroll and flower pattern, made with long, quickly placed stitches of heavy embroidery Bilk. No dress could present fewer difficulties to the home dressmaker. When glog- liam and fine cotton voile are nsed together, hemstitching, very narrow crochet or cluny lace, or tatting are effective for Joining them. There is much Joy in a made-over frock that has lost all trace of "Inst year" in Its remodeling, and the styles fafor the thrifty-minded who undertake to make the best of them. / ' S Glove Extravagance. There are dreas economists who believe the resuscitation of the short sleeve forecasts a saving of material. Perhaps. But, on the other hand* there are any number of women who will Bght shy of the coqnettiBh IKtle sleeve that terminates Its brief career somewhere between elbow and shoulder. To them It aeons the addition of long gloves or the adoption of a guimpe with net, loce or organdie under sleeve showing below the gown sleeve. And gloves cannot be put in the category of reasonable adjuncts-no, not eveu If one is willing to forego kid, and substitute silk oc cotton. LRAILROAD'S GOOD IDEA .UNION PACIFIC 1 ^ SUGGESTION TO EMPLOYES INTERESTING. Would Have AH Those Working for th» Lino Refer to It as "Our" Company--Kcsn Wisdom Behind tha Plan. One of the big western railroads --the Union Pacific--has recently is- j ·aed a very interesting suggestion-- ] one that could profltbly be Jesued by j many other institutions--In effect that , employes, from office boy up to the highest official, use the expressions "our," "we" and ''us" when speaking of that particular railroad. This la a step In the right direction, and Its good effect In Interest- Ing all employes in the company affaira ·will be Car-reaching- When om: pauses to consider that It la the employea of m corporation, or any business, who mate success possible, the plan adopted by the railroad in question is better appreciated. Thar great financier, J. Plerpont Morgan, once said: "I do not want anyone In the employ of any company I «m interested in who is not with j that company in the tallest sense o f | the "word, and who will not look out j for the company's interests without i being asked to do so." j John Wanamaker put it thir; way: ) **When I see a youag man watching the clock near noon hour or evening qaittlng time I Io3e faith In hia." Both of these men of finance taught their employes 10 speak ol the business as "ours." Thny did it to Interest the employes and cause them to take propor concern In the alVaira of their employers. The'omploye who la able to tay "we will give your order prompt attention"; "our resprer.entatlve will call and take the matter up with you"; "oar company Is always Quite willing to rectify any error"; or "we appreciate your patronage," is buildiag better than ht or shs knows.--Omaha World-Herald. Fourteenth RirteU), and to Invite senators and members of the house and other public officials to look orer hia invention. "The etoel car of today IB pr*ctic*V ly Identical -with that of the old E«O- Uemtui from California, whose name has escaped me. There were certain patents on his car that probably prevented the railroads from adopting It. My information Is that he te dead, and that bis patents died before he did. Today we know that the steel c*rm ar* used on one of the great railroad systems almost exclusively. The columne of the Post tow days ago, showed that steel can were responsible for saving the* lives of more than · scons of persona who were injured, and who would probably not be alive today had It not been for the protection afforded by the steel cars." FOOTWEAR FOR RAILROAD MEN New "Safety" Shtw Will Prevant tha Catching of the Foot In a Switch. The number of tiroes railroad mm have lost a foot by baring It eangbt In a swltcb when a train was ftp- proacblng has caused » Ftencb inTan- tor to design a shoo baring a remoT- able scle and heel.

MOVE IN RIGHT DIRECTION More Safety, the Expenie of Speed, Ha» Become Increasing Aim of the RaHroads. "Safety first" has been adopted as a slogan by another eastern railroad. This moves the Manchester (N. H.) Union to say: "It IB an addition to current Indications that the get-taere-oo- titne-at-anr-coflt policy which has dashed oat BO many lives In recent year* on American railroads is passing.

THOUGHT ONLY OF HIS TRAIN Fatally Scalded, Englnaar Appllea All Brakes and Stop* Flyer Bcfon He Lotfia Conacloumesa. By great bravery and presence at mind William A. Carr, abcty years old an engineer on the Pennsylvania railroad, saved the Philadelphia-New Yort express when the boiler flues blew out, filling the cab with ateam and scalding him ao severely Uiat physicians say h will die. The express passed Millstone June tlon, N.

With one hand he closed the throttle and with the other he shot the air brake control foil over, setting the brakeshoea against the wheels until they slid squealing along the ralla.

UEYERSDALE, May 26.--The Red Cross campaign which has been in progress for the past week is meeting with good success, and by Monday evening, the closing of the campaign, it is expected Mcyersflale will be able to report that they have reached their quota.

The Comnagnle du Nord of Franc* IB the first railroad of the world officially to adopt the regulation .of !ts timepieces by wlreleu time signals Railroads ordinarily regulate the sta tlon clacks on their lines by nfeans o] algnala that are transmitted orer the telegraph wires. This method fr quently Interrupts the regular telegraphic service, and Is open to otbei objectiouB. Wireless tlmo signals, on the other band, cause no interruption of tbe regular service. They are received each morning at 17 of the principal atatlons. on the line of the French railroads from the national bureau In the Eiffel tower. The receiver, which IB a small and portable apparatus, la connected with a very simple "aerial" made up of oae wlr' or* two parallel wirea 150 feet or more long, stretched between two oralarj telegraph poles. How Men Handle Their Meney-- Hoetetter. A young Plttsburg Croesus threw away more; than, a million, dollars in the year 1302, and it is said that he still o-wed naif a million more when he died. Tbe folly of a useless expenditure of money is seen at once, when it Is compared with the life o( a man who earns money, prudently gives, spends carefully and treasures small savings as well as large funds. The savings account is the beginning of a course of gaining wealth. The Citizens' National Bank, 138 Plttsburg street, Connellsvllle, accepts savings in any amount.
