Women Protest Order by Employers
to Bob Hair.
Berlin, Germany.— Two hundred
working girls and matrons are up in
arms at Tannrode, Thuringia, over an
attempt to introduce the bobbed head
forcibly. At the local electric works
a bulletin unexpectedly appeared to
the effect that the women must have
their hair bobbed or run the risk of
being fired.
The women objected not so much to
the idea of bobbed hair as to the ex-
pense of achieving and keeping it up.
They pointed out that they were earn-
ing but 4 to 5 cents per hour, which
means a weekly wage of about $2.
The barber’s charge for a woman’s
haircut is 50 cents, or one-fourth of
a week’s wage and the cost of keeping
ED the bob, they figure amounts to
about 37 cents per week.
Telephone Service Last Year in Eu-
rope Showed Greater Com-
mercial Use.
Telephone wire service between
nineteen of the principal European
cities increased nearly 100 per cent.
during 1926, according to the Penn-
sylvania Public Service Information
Committee. The average require-
ment in 1925 was 130 minutes, which
has in the Berlin-Paris connection
been reduced to 68 minutes this year;
the London-Amsterdam average con-
nection now takes 84 minutes instead
of 61, as in 1925.
The success of the commercial use
of the telephone in the United States
has stimulated an effort toward the
widest possible extension of an inter-
national telephone service in Europe.
In this work can be seen another at-
tempt to break down the age-old bar-
riers between the Continental nations.
Any instrumentality which tends to
stabilize business and effectively ex-
tends the field of operations with con-
sequent increase in volume of trade,
should lessen the difficulties of inter-
national commerce.

them when
Paris has already signed her Letter
of Fashions for the early days of
autumn, so that as fast as one suc-
cessful wardrobe is completed, one’s
mind and eye turns to the edicts of
the famous couturiers in Paris. The
“dernier cri” in matters of good dress-
ing says a Paris fashion correspon-
dent in the Kansas City Star, come to
the world through collections of mod-
els shown for the “demi-saison,” as
the French term midseason clothes.
But when all is said and done, the
new models do not mean those ex-
clusively for between seasons but
herald, as well, coats, suits and many
frocks which are to be worn in the
early autumn.
One of the most important topics
in the world of fashion is that of the
length of skirts, and upon this pivots
one of the most exciting bits of news
that rushes out of the dressmaking
porials. They are longer. With these
few words, it seems that the whole
story is told, but much more is to be
said upon this vital subject in the
ways of the mode. Sports clothes ob-
viously hew to the line of brevity for
the sake of activity, so that the dis-
tance of the hemline from the ground
instantly segregates fashions into
two wholly different classes: those of
sports character and dressy types.
For afternoon and evening wear Paris
not only sponsors but accepts the
longer skirt, an idea which glided
forth in many guises for the early
summer modes and which now stands
as an established fact. Midseason
showings have emphasized the longer-
skirted frock, not only in its illusion,
but in its reality, and frankly shows
that the lengthened skirt is not a fly-
by-night fashion, but one that is de-
scending upon us with avidity.
In an attractive frock named
“Folie,” the loose panels, which re-
mind one of box plaits, come below
the body of the dress, which in itself
is longer, while the panels add a few
more inches to the depth. But this
is only one of hundreds of frocks
shown in Paris wherein the skirt is
longer. Circular skirts are both long-
er and wider. Draped models always
descend at the point of the drapery
whether this is in the center front of
the skirt or one side, while fan-plait-
ing is inset at both sides of the skirt
to give fullness as well as depth at
these side points. A point of length,
back dip in evening gowns of chiffon
-—finds emphasis in the midseason
shows so that one is guided into safe
channels of correct fashions by choos-
ing a simple unadorned gown in either
a pastel tone or one of the small floral |
prints which have such great vogue
this season.
As if a vote had been taken as to
which color would be most popular
for early autumn, the couturiers of
Paris showed quantities of gray in
every imaginable tvoe of frock, coat
and ensemble. Unlike the grays we
used to know, which were hard and
cold, the new grays have a pinkish
tone, and some appear to be mixed
with white, which softens them
enough to become many tvpes of col-
oring. Blues are passing because the
strain of popularity is too great to
hold them for the late mode, and in
the place of blue comes golden and
reddish brown shades, which taper to
points of biscuit and delicate tints of
champagne. Green stands among the
unbanished, while purple tones, such
as those of the pansy and violet ink,
advance with enthusiasm in the pro-
cession of colors.
Smartest of all in the true sports
of a dress, such as a one-piece suit
or ensemble of jersey is in its comfort
and in the fact that it answers for
service in many ways. It is so un-
pretentious and, however sophisticat-
ed, apparently so simple that a wo-
man who begins with one or two
sports suits is intrigued to use the
model for as many costumes as she
The first medels in jersey and knit-
ed goods were crude affairs, warrant-
ed to make woman appear at her very
worst. But style and workmanship
have improved season after season,
things are delightful.
The scarf has become so important
a part of the costume that it is no
longer considered as merely an ac-
cessory. With the vogue of printed
chiffon for every type of dress, from
dance frock to sports, the most filmy
scarfs are shown. They are made of
the most elusive sheer stuffs and the
most enchanting of colors, in every
shade down to the faintest pastel and
flower tints. Sombre colors are espe-
cially charming in scarfs to be worn
with tulle and chiffon dance frocks.
Some elaborate French scarfs are
made of net, embroidered in graceful
designs with gilt and silver thread.
The dyed-lace scarfs are pretty and
very popular. Scarfs of plain or print-
ed crepe-de-chine are smart for day-
time and sports wear. These are done
in bold modernistic and cubist pat-
terns, in weird colors, usually printed
on a white or light background.
striking novelty is a practical muffler
of white, light beige or gray cashmere,
fringed at the ends. Also each end is
hand painted in a sophisticated motif
—scenes with figures of animals. The
Deauville scarf is again being worn.
Sound muffling has become a part
of the presnt-day standard of liva-
bility in the small home. The chil-
dren wil not be heard so much, nor
need they be so constantly reminded
“to keep still’ if, in the building of
the home, adequate attention is paid
to this matter of sound deadening.

—Dahlias are the show flowers for
this month. Water the plants freely
roots and perfect flowers.
—1Is the storage ready for the win-
ter apples? If not, clean it out and,
if there was much decay in the stored
fruit last winter, fumigate or spray
with copper sulphate or whitewash.
—Continue spraying the potato crop
with bordeaux mixture to keep the
late blight away. The longer the
vines are green the more the tubers
can grow and the better the harvest.
—One ounce of alum added te a
gallon of lime whitewash increases
its adhesive quality. Flour paste an-
swers the same purpose, but a pre-
servative, such as zinc sulphate,
should be added.
—Have you picked out those good
animals for the fair exhibit this fall?
Don’t be the fellow who says, “I have
better stock than those prize winners
at home.” A good exhibit wil adver-
tise your business.
—Give the early pullets proper care
and feed now to fit them for the best
possible production next winter. You
cannot fill the egg basket when prices
are high by stunting the pullets and
delaying their production period.
—1Tt is too late to change the qual-
ity of the fruit on the tree but the
fruit sold the consumer and the prof-
it therefrom can be greatly improved
by careful grading and packing. An
honest attractive pack means repeat
—For hogs, alfalfa is the best pas-
ture obtainable, furnishing a maxi-
mum supply of ideal forage through-
out the season, even in dry weather.
As many as 20 shoats per acre can be
carried. Better plant some for pas-
turing next year.
—Male birds with the flock are not
necessary to get a good yield. It is
important, however, that the breed-
ing males have comfortable quarters
betwen hatching seasons. Quality of
the eggs is improved when the roost-
ers are removed from the flock.
—Begin the annual fight against the
peach borer on September 10 with
paradichlorobenzene. Your county
agricultural agent knows how much to
use, where to treat, and what trees to
treat. If you do not know him, get
acquainted. You will find it worth
—Pick fruit according to the mar-
ket, not too gren, but if the market
is distant, not too ripe, say horticul-
turists of the Pennsylvania State Col-

ries better than green fruit and is in-
finitely superior to it on reaching the
—Cuttings of roses, geraniums,
coleus, and the like may be made now.
Insert the rose cuttings in wet sand,
sprinkle often, and they will gradual-
ly take root. Transplant later to cold-
frame or box. Cuttings from geran-
iums and coleus may be started in wet
sand or water and will be right for
house plants this fall.
—Late garden crops need cultiva-
tion the same as spring and summer
vegetables do.
late in August which will need culti-
vation for a long time yet are lettuce,
spinach, Chinese or celery cabbage,
endive, pepper grass, and mustard,
State College specialists point out.
— Use sound, clean, mature fruit of
late varieties for making apple cider.
Unripe apples have less food value
and are more sour because of higher
malic acid content. Partially grown,
odorless, flavorless, early windfalls, in
which starch has not been changed to
sugar, are worthless for cider making.
—House the laying pullets early.
Normally developed pullets have com-
pleted their molts and start heavy
production when about six months old.
Put them in their laying quarters
when they first start to lay. Early
housing enables the pullets to get ac-
customed to their new surroundings
before they start to lay, and removes
a common cause of fall molts.
—Unless the soil is sweet it is prac-
tically useless to attempt to grow al-
falfa. If there is any doubt in the
matter, sampless of soil, not over
four inches deep, should be taken
from several parts of the field, mixed
together and a composite sample sent
to your county agent for test. He
will report whether lime is needed
and the approximate amount per acre.
—Disease-free strawberry plants
pay. H. E. Herr, of Lancaster coun-
ty. has found that out. :
In the dry spring of 1926, Herr set
out an acre of strawberries, using dis-
ease-free plants obtained from J. V.
Meder, of Girard, Erie county. By
using a tobacco planter which put a
little water at the roots of the plants
he got nearly 100 per cent. survival.
* This year he harvested 186% bushels
of berries which sold for $932.50, an
average of $5 per bushel. Herr also
disposed of nearly one hundred dol-
lars’ worth of plants.
He grew his berries under the di-
rection of the agricultural extension
specialists of the Pennsylvania State
College. He practices rouging, ac-
cording to W. S..Krout, the College
berry disease specialist, and has a
fine young patch which will bear next

last four years at the Idaho agricul-
tural experiment station have shown
that the vitamine content of a ration
Lawn clippings when used as a
green feed proved almost as valuable
as cod liver oil in preventing mortal-
ity from vitamine deficiency, in in-
creasing production and profits over
feed cost, and in increasing hatch-
ability. This was found true when
the clippings were used with a well-
balanced ration, from 1924 to 1926.
Results of trials conducted over a
two and one-half-year period indicat-
ed that dried yeast, under the condi-
tions of the experiment, was nec-
essary. A one-year trial of orange
juice and a six months trial with let-
tuce indicated that both contain suf-
ficient vitamines to. prevent vitamine
