HE HAD THEM IN A CORNER Clergyman's Rebuke to Thoughtless Youths at Once Neat and Disconcerting. A well known clergyman was one day. In a barber's shop, when four 01 tlve young men walked lu whom be knew by their voices, but who did not recognize the man In the chair, with lalher all over his face. They pro- ceeded to spend the time by telling Htorlea and using expressions which, to say the least, wore rather strong. When the barber pulled away the towel the clergyman, cleanly shaved, Htood before them. So nonplussed were they that no one tried to take the vacant chair, and the barber called several times—"Nextgentleman! Next gentleman!" The clergyman smiled somewhat grimly as he said: "It Isn't a bit of use, John. There's not a man here who has the effront- ery to answer to that name."

\ If 4 V /S v. d / Lovely White Hats -■ - \' L 4 THIS Is the whitest of white sum- mers, and everywhere the pre- ponderance of white gowns makes a background against Which millinery is displayed to the very best advantage. The greater number of hats are white also, but not entirely, Plume-laden or flower- laden, they are adorned with exquis- ite colors. Pink, in the coral, sea- shell and other delicate tones; blue in the nattier and other grayish tints; lilac, rose, green and cerise, are fa- vorites, and, just at the hour, yellow has put in an appearance. In any large gathering of women, out for the Bummer evening, these colors, in the liveliest of shades are scattered in a sea of white. For the entire cos- tume, from shoes to chapeau, of the great majority is colorless, except for the trimmings on the hats. Two very beautiful white hats are pictured here, which illustrate very clearly the foregoing. The small hat in white hair braid is decorated with a band of gray net on which a p...

m ) i" I J v > yf*s V1 4 F there Is any field of public- spirited activity In the United States which stands out con splcuous above all others be- cause of recent progress It Is that which concerns ltBelf with the betterment of our public highways. If anybody had pre- dicted a few years back that the beginning of the second decade of the twentieth century would see so marked and widespread an improvement of the public roads of the United States he would probably have been laughed at by all save those few enthusiasts who were looked upon until a short time ago as "cranks." This is not saying, mind you, that there is not cuch yet to be done to bring the highway sys tem of this great land to the point where It ought lo be and to maintain It there. We are still a rery long way behind most of the countries of the old world—notably our sister republic of France—In the condition of our roads.
