PARJS,'-April 20.--A diplomatist described to me the sensations all passed through during the days, of the Italian crisis. On coming home late at night he saw in the Temps President Wilson's manifesto. He could not take It a!l In at once, and read it twice and then went to sleep. Ho woke up at 3 In the morning,'read It a third time and then dozed again. For gome hours ppsslmlsm reigned, with specters of a.ppall|nef immediate perils such as the. renewal of the war and the triumph of a united Germany over the disunited allies and the impossibility of France and EnslsPd signing any 'treaty of peace In view of their treaty with Italy pledging them to sign all together or not at all. At first it looked a.s (f the President had intervened in the maprjer most inconvenient and least considerate, for I his manifesto, .apparently was delivered i as a surpriss packet to the three pre| rniers just at a'monient when they were i approaching an agreement. But this 18 an. entire misapprehension of the whole Incident. The. Italians knew of President--Wilson's intentions and perhaps even the terms of the. manifesto before the manifesto .was delivered to the public. The manifesto .was not issued tlil the President was' convinced ho was knocking his head against a. atone wall, I and then he had to act Immediately or surrender all the principles for .the maintenance of which- he' .had given himself and his country ail the trouble of his prolonged absence from Wtt?h- Ingtqn.

In the clothing business a designer Is regarded as an artist, and the firm respects the vagaries and temperament of the artistic mind. A designer may take several weeks to turn out a dress design, or again he may put a model together in an hour. He pins or sews the goods on a dummy model, and then sends it to the workroom to be properly put together. From this original model patterns and other models are made.
