There Is nothing In the least original In uch on observation; yet It Is more or lens true. Tor one never on be ure Just what a woman will do next nor precisely what trange freak of fashion he will haste to follor. e I.ast month, when I was In I.ondon, I ltetlcd with Interest and no email amount ot surprise that an attempt was being made to revUo tho "no-hat" fashion In the streets, The attempt was a mild one, and qutto obvious ly foredoomed to failure. Yet some bright spirits were making a bold bid for the Innovation, and yearning for the winds of heaven to play amidst their unruly locks. The gentle zephyrs, by the Way. certainly were playing havoc amidst the aforesaid coiffures. Poetically speak ing, the wind-tossed, sun-kissed locks of the average maiden present or should present a charming picture. Dut such Is very seldom the case. It the truth be told. Long, straggly ends ot hair from which every vestige of curl has long since fled, ragged edges and disheveled "bangs" are not attractive, whether Boreas Is whispering amongst them or not. One or two of the damsels who wero aping the new fashion were obviously for eigners, either Belgians or French. In these countries It Is the rule for working girls of thei.tretter class to go to and from their business without hats, whilst house wives rarely do their marketing with cov ered heads. I chatted with a prominent London hairdresser on the subject. "I do not think tho fashion is Bultnble either for English or American women," he said, de cidedly, "for they have much finer, softer hair than other races, and would llnd It very difficult to keep It neat and trim In all weathers. ' Belgian and French women usually have thick, glossy hair, which can be colled round the head or dressed neatly at the neck without fear ot getting untidy on a wlndv day. r ''Besides, and this Is an all-Important point, "women from the sunny land of France' have a sense ot artistic halrdresa- BOY SCOUTS WILL BE GIVEN PRIZED HONORS Trophies, Letters and Merit Sadges to Be Awarded Tonight by Court The Court of Honor of the Philadelphia Boy Scouts will present the Treasure Island camp trophies and camp letters and 231 merit badges tonight at Boy Bcout Headquarters, Sth and Chestnut streets.

The little chambermaid In my hotel, whose earnings per week would not have kept the average Ameri can girl In gloves, had her hair most ex quisitely waved and dressed, every line In perfect harmony,, and her pretty head a veritablo poem of beauty. The women car conductors, whose Indi vidual earnings In a 10 houta' day of work wou'd not bo rulHclent to pay for one single halrdresslng, have coiffures so beautifully 'marcelled' and arranged that many a rich American or English woman might envy tfiem. "We would be nshmed to appear In public with the hair dishev eled or untidy," one of them declared. "Is It not one of your English poets who declates that a wom an's crowning glory Is her hair? That crown ing glory we must, therefore, keep a glory, and not nllow to become unculti vated nnd unkempt. The arrangement of the hair, too. Influ ences the mind. Did you ever see a w oman with a rough, untidy heaj who was cieer at her work, nlert, active? And did you ever see the woman with the impossible coiffure respected In business? Certainly uoc In this country. We consider that a neat, well-groomed appearance Is essential to success in our different professions and that It Is the outward sign ot a tidy, care ful mind." Whether the foregoing remarks. In their sweeping entirety, may be open to dis pute or not, tho fact remains thut the woman with smart, well-groomed locks has nn Immense advantage both In work and In play oer her untidy and thcre foro less attractive sister.

Woman suffrage received attention at the second day's session of the Delaware t. C. T. U. State convention here today. Miss Margaret Shearman apoko on tiie sub ject In the afternoon, and Mrs. John A. Cranston, the veteran suffrage and tem perance leader In this State, and others who are Interested, put In some good words for the movement during the day. The majority of the members of the con vention believe that women could ac complish much for temperance as well as for other reforms If they had the ballot. The session this morning wns taken up with the presentation of reports, and all showed that good, earnest work had been done for temperance In all the va rious branches of the union. Tho report of the Executive Committee showed an encouraging condition of affairs. The following read reports: Miss Llxzle Raughley. secretary; Mrs. Clara Marshall, treasurer; Mrs. Lllllo V.

From Monday, September 27, to Saturday, October 2, this community 'a due for a lesson In the possibilities ot modern gas Illumination. Gas companies tho country over are planning to turn tiicse six nights Into days, nnd Philadel phia will have an appropriate share In the splendor. For months the tas people have been preparing for Lighting Week. It Is felt by the lenders of the Industry that enough renlly big, revolutionizing things havo happened in their world In the last few years to warrant the setting npart of a week for telling tho public about them. Almost unknown even to ninny who havo used gas nil their lives, thero arc yet wonderful new ways of lighting, new typen of lights, new methods of control all of them the result of the recent work of tho man In the laboratory, and all of them full of interest to the man on the street. If one should happen Into the offices of tho local company next week, one would get a glimpse of some ot the de vices which get such transforming effects from the ordinary gas one Is wont to sco burning In nn open flame from nn ordinary tip: mantles not much larger than the tip of one's thumb, giving out n light that reachei to every corner of tho room; the great, luminous bowls of the scml-intllrect system diffusing their soft nnd perfect light; exnet and easy systems of control., masterpieces nf their kind, and everywhere one would notice the elimination of chimneys, gauzes nnd stacks tho triumph of sim plicity. LONG STRUGGLE WON. This was a triumph won only after long and almost heait-breaklng struggles. In a littlo Npw Jersey laboratory Howard Lyon, one of tho leading experimenters In gas, set to work to devise a better gaa IlRht than tny then known. He worked for several years nnd at the end of that tlmo ho had n tube, not so long as a pencil and tapering LUrlously In the middle, nnd a mnntlo the size of a thimble. That doesn't sound Impressive, but Dbctor Lyon had what he had gone after, nnd his cute Is typical of tho lnbois of his fellow scientists of the gas Industry all over tho country. They worked to cut down, to eliminate, to simplify, and they made a tremendous scrap heap. But they got what they weio after. There was a long period In the history of gns lighting when the scientists, be lieved that for purposes of Illumination tho art was well nigh perfected. That wns the time when open-dome burners were regarded ns next to miraculous, and elaborate fixtures were devised to set oft the garish yellow blaze. This was Just after gas began really to bejused for lighting, it had been known to exist ns early as tho 17th century , when the Belgian chemist Van Hclmont coined the word "gas," becauso It appeared to be a "gcest," the Dutch word for ghost. However, he paid the penalty for talking about ghosts, for his superstitious neigh bors hounded him Into obscurity. At first the 17th century public was afraid of tho new "geeBt." To tho popu lar mind the burning of a gas Jet was a strange phenomenon. People thought that gaB pipes were filled with fire and thnt the Jets were only openings through which the flames escaped. They would touch the pipes fearfully, expecting to tlnd them hot. When the early Installa tions were made the pipe-layers actually had to set the pipes several feet from tho wall for fear It would burn! 8TAnTED IN 1810. Gas lighting was really launched on Its career In England In 1810, by a man named Wlnsor. However, not until 1880 did the modern scientist become dis satisfied with the crude open flame and set about transforming it Into a thing of convenience and beauty. First, by means of the now famous Bunsen bur ner, the spreading flame was concen trated Into a small space; then rare earths, reduced to fluid form, were made Into mantles to surround this flame. In creasing the light twentyfold. It Is for the scientific descendants' of these very mantles that millions of dollars are, spent today; and It Is by them that more than 75,000,000,000 cubic feet of gas Is burned In this country every year. Then came a burner In which gaa was sent through a small tube at high veloc ity, sucking the needed air with It, and on the heels of this came the Inverted typo of Incandescent gas mantle, tho forerunner of the best In modern light ing. At first this new unit had a most un usual fault It waa overefllclent. It gave an Intolerable amount of light for the gas burned. It was In toning down and perfecting this light In the interests of the exacting human eye that Doctor Lyons' work was done. Today the scientists can take a gas- stream, hurl it at great apeed through a tapering tube that constricts It so that there Is an almost perfect mixture ot gas and air and fire, the combination to make a light so perfectly toned as al most to cheat one Into the belief that It Is the daylight coming In through a win dow. They can conceal the source of this light In bowls ot the new, heavy, luminous glassware so that the fixtures will harmonize with any modern scheme of decoration. They can turn on this light, aa any one can turn It on, by simply touching a chain or pushing a button In the wall. And all the while they were doing these things to the gas-stream they were "scraping" the pld-fashloned chimneys and stacks, and perfecting the manufac ture of the tiny new mantles, These are some of tho things that the gas companies prpmlse to show next week, Merohants will co-operate by light ing their windows with gas at night; there will be special reductions In the sales of appliances; there will be con tests, too, and other pleasant and profit able devices for celebrating the occasion, end there Is promise of plenty to Illumi nate the householder who thinks there's nothing new In the way of gaa lighting.

It Is the successful adapta tion of a style which makes the atyle possible, or as the Dry Goods Econo mist puts It, "the hoop skirt Is restrained to a point of moderation" a thing which we often wish could be done with Its do sleners.

On the other hand, however, It may not. It all depends on the decision ot an egg. If It hatches, there will be a baby alligator. If It does not, there will be none. If the alligator arrives It will first seo the light of day In the window of the store of Gus Fappas, on Chester pike, above Main street. For the egg Is dis played there so that all Darby may watch Its evolution. A circus came to Darby some weeks ago. It was apparently not such a pros perous circus, as the owners owed a bill to "Jim" Kelly, who keeps a livery stable on Main street, above 4th. As "Jim" couldn't collect hla bill he kept one ot the pet alligators belonging to the circus. The alligator, a feminine kind of reptile, laid ihe egg. Alligator eggs are not common In Darby and It soon aroused a good deal of In terest among the population, Particular ly Interested In It were two policemen. Josh Heaps and Bert Shaw. They found the egg very fascinating. It was peculiar, for, although It looked not very much different than a hen's egg. It would bounce when dropped on the ground. If you don't believe a hen's egg won't bounce, drop one some time on you parlor floor. One policeman said the egg would hatch. The other said he was a "blamed fool." (Ills language, to be acourate, waa some what stronger.) Bo they decided to find out who was right They put the egg In a Jar of water and searched for a nice warm place In which to place the Jar.
