Small Hat bows of velvet ribbon
or silk are popular trimming.
Touches of brilliant coloring aro
used upon many of the smart suits.
Wide belts and girdles of leather,

Long sleeves nnd draperies arc

The normal waist-lino has return
ed. This permits of the wearing of
belts nnd girdles.
Wraps both for day and evening

Hats are still rather low on tho
head, but show more of tho hair
Parasols are of colored and white
linen, embroidered or plain, to match
In Paris sleeve frills are very Im
portant; also jabot frills with vests
Women are once more using the
old cream-tinted Spanish lace for
The dominant style tendency is
better described by Dlrectoire than
Buttons of crystal, pearl with
xlrns of color and covered molds are
Carved crystals represent a charm
ing Jewelry novelty. Often they are
mounted in platinum.
Embroidered batiste and voile are
much used to fashion the large
square, round or blbllke collars.
The midsummer nat is made of
tulle, and there is much use of aig
rettes, paradise and wings.
Fashion indications are that floral
corsage ornaments and wee bou
quets will be more in favor than
Big, round, self-buttons and but
tons of crystal are seen on the one
piece satin gowns, black or white.
Plaits are appearing in skirts of
cloth and linen. These aro usually
at either side of a panel back and
Frocks of white serge producing
a coat effect are smart. The pep
lum falling below the waist belt,

In good taste. Skirts of black have
short coats of white, satin with col
lar and cuffs of black and vice

cool and at the same time well
There is a great demand for flow

lar. Although patent leather takes the
lead for evening slippers, suede fol

Jackets that contrast with the

ly In sporting costumes.
The old-fashioned silk purses of

around tho bottom of tho skirt, and
also for a finish to the short elbow

squared corners and are edged with
narrow pleatings. Bindings of the
same material aro frequently used.
Some of the wldewalo piques, or
cotton corduroys, as they are called
now, aro being used for children's
frocks; but they do not have the
same childish effect as those of
Shantung silk In tones of blue,
gray, mauve and tan is used to
fashion many of tho loveliest after
noon gowns. Theso are often elab
orately embroidered or trimmed
"with heavy lace.

CHESTER GARRATT'S SPEECH'
The Fourth of July celebration
at Bethany brought to that place
about two hundred and fifty people,
many of whom wero from Honcsdalo
and everyone present nssurcs us
that they had a good time. Chester
A. Garratt, Esq., of this place, de
livered a patriotic address to tho
assemblage in which ho pinched tho
eagle's tall and mndo it scream. His
Wo meet to-day to commem
orate tho 13Gth anniversary of
the 'American Declaration of In
dependence. It Is entirely
proper that wo do this.
Everywhere to-day In this land
there is evidence of patriotic
devotion. There is a cessation
from work in every mill and
on every farm. Congregations
of peoplo are assembled every
where to do honor to this day,
and to perpetuate among tho
future generations a feeling of
patriotism and a lovo of coun
try. Slnco tho beginning of this
country the peoplo were by
necessity Independent. They
had settled in a faraway
new and unconquered world.
They had severed their national
connection with England and
every other foreign power.
Only their technical allegiance
remained. When they came,
they were poor. After they
came, they became self-sustaining.
Their labors fell e d
the mighty forests and
cleared the stubborn land.
They forgot their own battles
of life in their forlorn struggle
for existence. They fought the
Indians. They erected their
own churches and schools and
cities. They were independent.
That Is what somo ono
million American people had
been thinking for a hundred
years. That is what Great
Britain was made to think on
July 4, 177C, when the Intent
and purpose of the American
colonists was reduced to writing
and the whole word made ac
quainted with tho fact. But
that was not the beginning.
Before there was a nation there
was a constitution. Before
a constitution t h 0 r o
was Independence. Beforo
there was a union there a peo
ple. If we wish to know the
cause for the American Inde
pendence we must view the
character of tho people.
We must then look across the
Atlantic. From 'Northern
Europe they came. From Eng
land, Ireland, Scotland, Nor
way, Sweden, Germany, Franco
and Holland they came. They
were sturdy people. They were
ireared for generations in a
cold and treacherous climate.
The weakest of each genera
tion succombed to disease.
Only the strongest survived who
transmitted added strength to
each succeeding generation.
They were a commercial peo
ple, enjoying a monopoly of tho
sea trade and enduring its
hardships. They were tho
Intrepid Norsemen and tho
bloody Anglo Saxon, all fear
less, honorable men, knowing
no superior and recognizing no
over lord except their duly
elected leaders. They wero
freemen and in the largest senso
were independent men. Their
decendents fled to this country,
fled from the religious tyranny
that prevaded northern Europe
neither would they tolerate po
litical tyranny. They loved lib
erty, and guarded with jealousy
their sound human rights.
Between 1720 and 17C0
there had been incessant politi
cal strife between the colonists
and Great Britain. For the
most part they had their local
legislatures for their self-government.
A law adopted by any
colonial government was sus
pended in effect until the wish
of the king was known. This
would take months and even
years. The effect of the law
was Interferred with. The evil
the law sought to prevent was
allowed to go on. Tho rem
edy was slow. Tho wheels of
Justice rolled heavily but slowly
on. Tho law was beset with
difficulty, injustice, Inequity
and crirao were on the throne.
In 17G0 George III ascended
tho British throne. Anxious to
regain tho ancient power of
British kings, colonial matters
were made worse. Tho condi
tion of life In the colonies be
came unbearable. The crown
wanted all privileges, all favors,
all allegiance, all loyalty, and
in turn gave nothing. Patrick
Ulenry declared that "govern
ment was a conditional com
pact between the king and tho
people, stipulating protection
on the ono hand, and obedlenco
on the other. The king had no
right to veto an act of tho
Virginia legislature that was
for tho good of tho peoplo
which ho did. Therefore tho
king had violated his part of
tho compact. iHo was a tyrant
and by so doing ho had forfeit
ed his right to allegiance."
Such was tho conflict until
tho declaration of Independence
stated our exact position. That
liberty and independence, tho
cherished hopo of our forefath
ers, tho prldo of our fathers,
and our only safety, was sus
tained on many a bloody battlo
ileld and at the cost of many
May wo, of tho present gen
eration, not forgot tho awful
lessons of liberty. May the day
bo far off when Fair Liberty Is
fettered hand and foot. When
tho machinery of a good and
righteous government grinds
and tears, and Is dlvorted from
Its truo and lawful purposo by
somo strong ovil wo cannot see,
but only feci, It Is so subtllo.
Something now Is getting a
stronger hold on llborty. Call
It tho money power If you will.
I call It tho onthroned monarch
of our day. Tho fight of tho
future Is to divest that mon
arch of Its power. Direct vote
of tho peoplo for all offices,
state and nntlonal Is a good
fight. Someday It will bo won.
To-day for the first tlmo forty
eight stars adorn tho bluo of
our flag. To-day forty-eight
states Join In a union strong
nnd great. That flag, tho prldo
of our nation now floats ovor
93,000,000 contented nnd hap
py people, now living in
unison, for n common purposo
nnd with an uncommon zeal
for tho betterment of govern
ment nnd through that purpose
for tho betterment of tho people.
Full Potato Acreage Promised.
The spring was late, cold and wet
over all tho great central valleys,
says the Amerldan Agriculturist.
There Is wide complnlnt that seed
rotted in the ground and that tho
early crop throughout the Ohio and
Mississippi valleys, Is uneven and
has a poor strand. It Is too early,
of course, to say anything about the
acreage, but It is evident that the
devoted to what might be called
the early crop Is smaller taan usunl.
On tho other hand, it appears to !
uo tne intention of tho farmers to
seed an additional aggregato pota
to acreage this year Is likely to be
large, and tho consequent high
prices received for tho crop, have
naturally stimulated tho desire to
plant a good acreage, and In addi
tion tho early season has been so
unfavorable that n rnnHlilnriililn nrnn
Intended for other crops is still un-j
seeded, and part of this will go Into
lato potatoes. The chances are,
therefore, that the final acreage for
tne potato crop this year will be
larger than usual.
Tho first report of conditions of
potatoes Is always high, becauso all
the dangers and vicissitudes of tho
crop must be met after that date.
The report this year Is lu accord
ance with this general principle, but
it Is to be noted that the first condi
tion reported is rather low In the
Ohio and middle Mlsslsslnnl vallev.
In the north-western states and in
the commercial districts generally,
however, the condition is about as

Last year I tiled some of my land

"Washington. Tho Department of
Agriculture estimated that the num
ber of acres in cotton in cultivation
this year in the United States Is
about 93 per cent, of tho area
planted n cotton last year, equiva
lent to about 34,097,000 acres, as
compared with 30,081,000 acres in
dicated by the Department's revised
estimate of last year's planted area,
a decrease of about 2,584,000 acres,
