Black straws almost always call for roses.

set on in a straggling fashion ond medium
and deep reds with branches of leaves. Broad
brims, bent up In fantastic shapes, are, as a
usual thing, trimmed to suit toilets, and at
time almost produce the effect of fancy
dress. Suoh styles of headgear naturally
look beston tall girls.

crown there is a little rosette of red ribbon
and of crepe of the same shade.
EKI1IT HUNDRED MEN AT WORK
IN THE CARNEGIR MILL AT HOMFSTEAD, AND
OVER 100 MEN ADDED DAILY.
In order to ascertain the true condition of
affairs at the Homestead steel-works, and to
learn if the oft-repeated stories published
about only a few men being at work and
the majority of these dissatisfied bad any
foundation in truth, a Pittsburgh reporter
secured a permit and visited the worka
Thursday. The result was a most surprising
revelation, and plainly indicated that those
persons outeide the work who pretend to be
thoroughly posted on the workings within
the mill ground are either wilfully deceiv
ng the public or they have no knowledge
about what they speak.
Not since the company regained full pos
session of the plunt. which for several day
wan in the hands of the mob, have represen
tatives of the newspapers been admitted to
the works until now. The belief has been
general that the discharged workmen on
one side and the olllcials of the company
on the other have been playing a double
game of deception on the public as to the
progress of resuming work, for the eflect it
would huve upon thoe seriously consider
ing the acceptance of employment at the
terms offered. Vice Chuirman Leishmun
disproved this by issuing order admitting
representatives of certain newspapers to the
works. They were given every opportunity
to make a thorough investigation of every
department of the plunt. even to talking
with the men there at work.
The result of thi personal investigation
proves that there are over 700 men now at
work in the mills, exclusive of superinten
dents, foremen and heuds of departments,
which included increase the total number
to about 800. The new men a a rule are
bright, intelligent Americans, a large ma
jority of whom are skilled and exjierienced
men in the departments in which they are
employed. The best evidence thut tbey aro
satisfied may be given in their own worda.
Thev say their wages and treatment are
satisfactory, and they have no doubt of per
manent employment in the position which,
they have accepted.
