They had, for some reason, which we' do not know, disappeared beforo the Spaniards ca.-ne, so the horses we have In this country now are not native American horses, but ot European stork.

Your big sister would be delighted with a band mirror for her dressing table, which you can mako any color you desire. It would be a good idea to have ltj {match the chief color of tho 'things In her room. Collect Materials First The materials needed for the] tmlrror are aa follows: Oue woodeuj spoon, a butter pat, three and one- half yards of one-Inch ribbon, one- quarter yard eight-Inch ribbon, a looking glass four Inches wide by Isli and one-half Inches high, and It piece of stiff cardboard four and one-half lnchee wide Inches deep. For the foundation of the mirror center the wooden spoon on the butter pat and screw It carefully, as la shown In Figure 1. Next cover the handle with ribbon wound tightly and fastened at the base ot the butter pat. Tacit Ribbon In Place In covering the back of the bol­ ter pat, use three and one-half Inches of the ribbon, and tack It as shown In Figure 2. This leaves the back of the pat a rounded surface, and the front flat and uncovered. It la to this flat Burface that the cardboard • backed looking glass la later attached. The next step, Figure 9, looks a great deal more difficult than It really Is. Tho woven, criss-cross effect covering the butter pat Is obtained by folding the ribbon at an angle, like the dotted lines In the Dlc.ture.. and tacking each Cold NEED MORE LAND FOR HOSPITAL It -'a pointed out that within a month or two the hospital win have Too patients. If the forthcoming legislature appropriates money for two additional cottages, as has Lamed, Nov. -.--With the rapid j c,l5t °™ ever ? lwo ,_ ., . . . ..

The hospital farm now eori>isis of '.I*''' 1 aerefi. A tract IV!: miles long and a mile wide, siy quarters. The matter of obtaining, three additional quarters south of and across tho Pawnee from tho hospital Is being considered. This would give the hospital an entrance from the south road, and a tract of land l 1 - miles square, or nine quarters of hind in all. the fnstltution will have lation of 1,000. COTTON HARVEST. Lyons, Nov. 29—A yield of about 100 hales ot cotton is e.xpe't ed this season from the cotton field of Orville Ellis, located SVii miles northeast of Lyons. PRICES OF CREAM NOT ENOUGH Spearville, Kan., Nov. 29—Pro- the handle. Into place. The ribbon li crowed over to the other aide, where It Is folded and tacked In the same fashion, until the pat It entirely covered. Figure 4 shows the ribbon wound straight around the end and sewed. Slake Cardboard Backinf In mounting the looking glass, make the cardboard backing first. Cover this cardboard with the remainder of the wide ribbon, tacking it down at the corners, aa you did the covering ot the butter pat In Figure 2. Center the looking glass on the uncovered side of the cardboard and glue It firmly. If you would like an attractive finish to your glass, told your narrow ribbon lengthwise, making It one-half Inch wide, and sew It around the edge of your glass, like Figure 6. Glue Glara In Place In mounting the finished pat to the back of the glass, be sure you glue It securely and tack It firmly In several places. Figure 7 shows the completed hand mirror, and has added some pretty touches in the rosebudi and ribbon bow at Spectroscopic observations of Mars during Its recent approach to the earth disclosed the fact that Its two moons are composed ot iron. testing that prices of cream beltip paid by local buyers are under th" market elsewhere, the Business Men's club has taken up the matter and la Investigating. It Is alleged thRt prices here are usually about 4 cents lower than at Dodge City and two or three cents lower than at Ford and Offerle. The officers of the club were Instructed to write to the cream companies that maintain buyers here and ask them to raise the price. If you like to work with ribbon you will also enjoy making the attractive bag the girl In the picture I* holding. This requires several kinds ot ribbon, and can be made tn any color you desire, with the same or contrasting color tor lining. A dull green molro bag lined with some fancy designed ribbon should be very attractive. •Mako Ribbon Ila« You will need ono yard of ten- inch ribbon for tho outside, and (ho same amount for tho lining ot (he bag. Two amber rings, two- thirds ot a yard of one-Inch ribbon for the handles, and two-thirds of a yard of one-lncb ribbon for tho top ot the bag complete your materials. Figure S shows the two pieces ot ribbon placed together, oach with the wrong side on the outside. Sew them together on the two long edgea and on ONE short one, leaving the fourth side for the opening through which to turn the bag inside out. When you have reversed the bag, told in tho edges ot the fourth side and make a neat seam. Fold Ribbon Next, fold your ribbon in two, with the lining on the outside, so that your bag measures eighteen Inches In length, and measure off three inches from the tops-of both ends. This leaves a distance of fifteen inches to the bottom of tho bag. Sew the sides together on both edges, aa In Figure 2, and turn the bag inside out. Tie a large, roomy knot about four Inches from the bottom of the bag and tack it firmly. Cut the narrow ribbon Into two pieces of ten Inches In length, place them across the top ends of both aides ot the bag, as Is shown In Figure 10. Sew them on the Inside ot the bag, and Insert an amber ring Into each one, as in Figure 11, tie twelve Inches of the one-inch ribbon through each ring, and your lovely bag Is completed. Comb Case la Useful Another beautiful and attractive gift made of ribbon 1 B tho comb case pictured in Figure 13, You can be sure of Its being welcomed by any bobbed-haired friend, and it la very little trouble to mako. All you need to make this case Is one-quarter yard of slx-lncn ribbon ot some fancy design for the cover ot the case and the same amount of plain ribbon for the lining. Place the two pieces of ribbon together, right sides on the outside, and sew them all the way around with the blanket stitch, as Figure 12 Illustrates. The pocket is made simply by turning up the ribbon one-third, which la three inches, with the lining on the Inside. Sew both ends with the blanket ititcri, and Figure 3 3 shows a comb case that Is useful as well aa extremely attractive.
