A wartime snmmer outfit In shoes - might follow the suggestion in the ." group of three pairs shown In the plc- - tore: These do not -include shoes made solely for sportswear, which can lie coMldorcd beside the question ot .'shcM'tbat are indispensable. All the shoes pictured ore in the best imitt- "· rials "and · workmansJUp, which ' are matters.of real economy In footwear. They Include a pair of substantial black kid street shoes, a pair ot smart white canvas "cotfocfls and kid pumps for flress. The high boots for- street wear here sensible Cnban heels and moderately heavy soles. Perforations along ai the seams and at each, dde of the foe- at th« front, give them a hand- flnlst and ttwy look altogether and smart--Jaft as women themselves aspire to look in these times. White canvBS oxfords for wear with summer street onits and frocks are very plain and may be bad with either Coban or French Heels. They ore easily kept dean and are very durable. Where street shoes will strike the wrong note and something more dressy is needed, kid pomps, simitar to those shown In the picture, wSl flB all requirements. They are of black kid with gray panels, bat there is a great variety of pumps in all-black and black with colored panels to choose from. Different Shadts of On* Color. The combination of different shades in the same color is a very smart note in millinery just now; this Is noticed, perhaps, most tn the tortoise shell colorings. An attractive small hat of Milan has an nptnmed side'brim and ,tbts[ is trimmed in a very Hght shade of appie-green wheat, which is laid thickly abont the croivn sides and topped by a row of foliage in the color ot (ho straw. COLONISTS HAD LAST LAUGH "Yankee Doodle," Compowd by Brit- lib Officer En Ridicule, Became War Song of Free Men. | History 1 tell-s ua the origin of our national march--the famous "Yankee - Doodle." For more than 150 years It - has led us to victory. Few, perhaps, ' · Temember that to on English wit and musical grains we are indebted for the old tune. But true it is, although it was composed in a spirit of raillery, awakened by the sight of the "Yankee - Doodles who came to town" In answer to General Anihersf s appeal to the_col- ' onles for aid. ' It was "to the gammer of 1755 that the British army was encamped on the east bant of the Hoflson, a little below , · Albany. ,i ·''Tbey-were to open a campaign against :..the French Canadians, and the wi;JI- r;Iisctplinecl and nulfonned troops ~»waited the arrival of the Tolimteers. ·,~c£ln they came, a motley crowd, old inen, middle-aged men and young men, tint all with brave hearts beating and strong arms ready to dp battle. Some were mounted on ponies, others on old farm horses, taken from the plow, nnd many, with a zeal which kn«w no fa- tigue,'hnrrled In on foot; Each carried his own outfit and provisions. No two were dressed alike; there were long coats and short coats, . and no coots at aTl; there -were high hats and }wr bats, covering "closely cropped heads, or wigs with flowing cnrla. In they marched, and the regn- lar soldiers made merry at their ei- - Tpense. _, ·-. Bren the officers were not better r; mannered,-'and the snrgeon. Doctor Shackbnrg, entertained bis friends at raese by playing "Yankee Dopdle," which be hud composed to" derision of the volunteers. Greatly to the amusement of the British officers, the provincials received the tone In good faith, when Doctor KhacthTirg gravely assured them that it was, a, "celebrated .air of marital nrosic,"" anfl daily it -was heard played In their c::np. llttTe fllil those merry.Englishmen V^fwEUze'th'at the time' would come when tn those ringing notes the same colon- f«=ts would raarch to freedom. ~-~~TV-enty sears later "Yankee Doodle" cheered the heroes of Bnnker Hill, and later still, more than ever endeared to American hearts, it was exultantly played as Lord Cornwallls* army marched Into Washington's camp at Yorttown. French Rainfall Statistics. The investigation of French rainfall, as planned by the central meteorological offlce, has been carried ont for a portion of the country--the northwest provinces. Maps of the average rainfall for 50 years--1S51-1900--have been compiled, and comparison has betn made with the records of 16 stations la France and across the border in adjacent countries. The leading rainfall features fer euch month and for each year have been summarized. A wide variation over small patches of territory is Indicated, and while the annual precipitation is more than 40 Inches at very few stations, it Is 48 inches in tho MontB d'Arree, and only 20 to 3-! inches in the basins of the Seine, the Loire and the Oiso. Tn nearly all parts of the territory, the wettest month is October. The rainfall for this month exceeds four Inches In the country of Cam, the department of the Mancbe, the western part of Brittany, and the heights of Gatloe, reaching de maximum of sir inches at Sansssnvesii!l, and the (Jrieit nreas, with a full of two to three inches, are the middle valley of tie Seine, the basin of the Enre, and In the Beauce. The driest month Is February. Army Horses Good-Tempered. It's a weary, wicked world if you are on army horse. You may or nmy not approve of shoes, but yotfve got to have than jns,t the same. The French authorities have an ingenious contrivance which so pinions a horse that he has absolutely nottng to say la the matter. It holds Sils head, and holds Ms feet and holds bis body, and forcibly prevents Mm from expressing nn opinion, or choosmg his shoes, or making a protest in any way. If they wonlfl only let a fellow get In Jnst one real horse-size kick one could--but what's the use. In the meantime the farrier gets In his fine work, and then it-is too-late. Xes. It's a hard, cold, cruel world, so It Is, SHU, shoes are not so bad and they give a dandy heft to one's hind hoofs In arguments later on in the camps.
