MORE ABOUT JIMMY SOUTH
L the afternoon and
evening Jimmy hunted
around in search of
trouble, but fiyund
True enough, he saw
an old owl bitting tip
in a tree, and he aid
to himsch. "There' i
sleepy old fellow; I'll
wake linn up n a hurry! ' So lie blew
i tery liard and waked the old owl up.
"Oh, thank you so much, Jimmy,"
said the owl, the minute lie was
awake. "I wa-, having such very bad
dreams it was a real kind act for you
to wake nic up. And anyway, it is
high time 1 was about my business.
Thank you again," and he flew away.
Oh. but Jimmy was angry!
He went from there directly oer
to the cornfield. "I know what I'll
do I'll blow the corn down, then
they will all think I'm dreadful I
gue?s!" So he blew and blew. The
long corn leaves rustled and shook
iiid Jimmy thought he was being
crv successfully bad. Till one enrn
talk spoiled it all by aying: "You

winds hu've gone rift" and left us, but
ou stay and fan us and make us
very happy. We thank you cry
imtth" And all the cornstalks rus
tled a "thank you" so shyly and hap
pdj that Jimmy had no heart for say
ing an angry word, though he felt
verv cross in his heart.
He even stayed and fanned them a
little longer, while he was lrjmg to

my, they weic plenty sttong to fly,
but a little atraid to begin. All they
needed was your kind help!"
"It's just no use to try lo be bad,"'

might as well give up and go home.''
So he Marled back.

New Basque Is but a First

istes Will Have Oppor

Onre In so often the rumor Is hinted
abroad that the separate Wousn Is con

Is, Hut It reappears quite brazenly and In
ineslstibly tempting Kiilse. Before the

slightly with the same brush. It is al

BUggestion of It In mnny that aro de
signed of tho heavier materials.
The illustration shows a blouse of
moire, cut with tho kimono shoulder and
th now ouff that comos down over the
hand almost to the fingers. This cuff Is
the Inst word of the modiste, at present,
and while it mny be shaped In vailous
ways, left open or closed, It must bo
not only long but vory long. Indeed.
Tho blouse Is finished with a sailor col
lar at the throat, and tho vest and girdle
are cut In one piece nnd ntted snuglv
to give the basque effect. The vest but
tons noticeably higher than those we have
been wearing; it would seem almost ns

This argues a gradual disappearance of
the chain and beads, often ot such bnr
barle color nnd splendor, and n reappeat
nnce of smart llttlo hows and neckties,
of the kind that were high favorites a
fow years ago. Here, there Is neither
bow nor tie, Just buttons, but beautifully
cut jet buttons that are very decorative
on a delicate color. Tho buttons are also
used on the cuffs whero they hold tho
pointed ends of the cuffs In position
against the sleeve itself.
There Is homething essentially French
nbout the use of Jet for this putpose. The
blouse Is trimmed with Its own material
for both collar and cuffs, nnd It needs
Just tho daring touch that tho glistening
black buttons give
It 13 an artistic touch, for when all is
said and done the French modistes nre
artists whero color Is concerned.
Just what effect the war will have In
giving American designers an oppoitun
ity to create fashions after their own
stj.le and taste will perhaps depend on
how long tho war lasts. Certainly they
have never had a fair chance, for tho
public demand Is for French fashions In
clothes nnd millinery.
It is not a matter of fad or fancy, nor
a lack of patriotism. Amcilean artistes
hae jot to prove themselves when it
comes to a really fine feeling for olor.
In this respect It can certainly be ad
mitted still, that "they do those things
bolter In France."
WHEN JONES SUBSIDED
A well-known Illustrator, who makes In

the acquaintance of a noisy but good

In physical appearance this man was
typical of his kind, and the nttist made
several studies ot him, both in rcposo and
in his fnvorito dlveision of "holleilng."
fioino of the studies weio sold by the
arflst to nn Eastern magazine. They
showed Jones in his most violent state.
A jear later the artist again visited tho
region, lie was soon approached by Mr.
Jones himself, bearing ono of the pic
tures, which he hnd torn from the maga
zine In which It was printed. Pulntlng to
It, ha nsked:
'Is that me?"
"Well," replied the aitist, cvaslveh, "I
got the general idea from you, of cuiirse,
"Oh, 1 ain't takln' no offense," Jones
made hasto to say. "It's nil right; only
If It's me, say so "
"If ou put It to me that wa," said
the artist, "I can only icply that It is a
fairly good portrait of jou,"
"The men here on tho much agree with
you. 8o I look like that when 1 holler,
"I think you do."
"In that case," said Hollering Jones,
"nil I'vo got to hay is that Hnlleiing
Jones lias holloied Ills last holler. Here
after, when I celebrates, I does so with
a tin horn In my opinion, no man has a
