The best place in the world for the negro is the farm," Governor . T. W Bickett told as many negroes as could crowd ip hearing distance of the band stand at the State Fair Grounds where he delivered his address at the Negro State Fair. ; The governor's address is an an nual event at the negro lair just as it is for the white fair. There have been, all sorts of precedents for speeches on such occasions, but the governor 'adhered to his strict rule of brevity, said a few words, expressed his kind feelings toward the negroes of the state, offered all the encourage ment he could for the development of a higher citizenship, and then quit. "Stay in a good humor" was the governor's parting injunction to the negro citizens. - . "If you want to get along together," he said, "get in a good humor live in love and fellowship with all your neighbors black and white; follow the example of the scldier and pack up your troubles in the old kit and smile, smile, smile." Postofflce Safes Cracked. . Postoffice safes at St. Pauls.-Robe-son county, and Hope Skills,' Cumber land county, were cracked by yeggraen and govervnent agents have sent out warnings to postmasters, garage own ers, policemen, sheriff and. other offi cers in eastern North Carolina to be on the lookout for these robbers. Highway Tour Postponed. At a meeting of the executive com mittee of the - Central Highway asso ciation held at Greensboro it was de cided to postpone until May the tour over the highway. The' committee found difficulty in getting the requi site number of cars pledged for the trip. Furs, like coats, have soared in price until the average mortal can only look' at the more sumptuous .wraps .made of it and wonder that there is so much money in the world as they represent. But these extraordinary-prices havejnot decreased the demand. Furriers are unable to obtain skins that they could use for ready purchasers. Possibly the lack of transportation from some . source of supply to the fur market is respon sible for the shortage of pelts, or it may be, that the demand advances much "more rapidly than the increase In fur-bearing animals. In this case good furs, high priced as they are, will prove a sensible investment. 4 Mink, seal and kolinsky are favor ltes for the longer capes and coats. Moleskin is liked for its softness and suppleness and is dyed into dark brown shades this season, and brown Is .so much admired that squirrel and fitch are dyed also. Cape mantles and capes or cape-like coats Insure the ample loose effects that are of all the most graceful and pleasing; But the two fur garments in great est demand just now are wide, straight scarfs and coatees. A diamond is a diamond and furs are furs, whether in large or small wraps. These scarfs and coatees strike the note of luxuri ous warmth and richness that be longs to furs and give their wearers more service than garments, that can only be worn in midwinter. : There Is almost no fur that may not be made into a beautiful scarf. For coatees, seal, dyed squirrel, mole, kolinski, Persian lamb are used, with'-seal a favorite. This fur appears above in both the favorite garments, first in a long scarf with turban to match. These matched sets are to be credited with adding much distinction to this season's furs. The, odd turban has a soft band of velvet, with battlement edge turned up about it. Much atten tion has been given to the linings of scarfs to make them worthy their aristocratic company and they are often of chiffon beautifully embroider ed with small scattered , blossoms. The coatee, shorter in the front than at the back and full enough to sug gest a cape, simply was obliged to have flaring sleeve3, "with cuffs of skunk fur. This fur has wonderful wearing qualities with which it re-in forces the softer seal and makes an ample and most becoming collar. Muffs are large, many of them flat and so made that they are bags a, s well as muffs.

We hard ly stop to think how they are related to the seasons of the year and that It has taken some centuries to perfect them. But they are here, at hand, for the artists in apparel to use in inter preting their ideas to us.

There is something of splendor in it. i.Four charming' hats for midwinter shown in the picture above, are good and sufficient excuse for a little ex travagance on the part of the eternal feminine. 'Every woman knows that her hat is the most important Item in her , cotume and here are four that have all the excellencies! beauty of fabric, fieauty of line, becoraingness and fitness for the season.' The hat with graceful brim, at the top of the group is a triumph of the framemuker to start with, and is made, of velvet. It has ft- soft tarn crown and a sash of wide satin' ribbon ending in bows that follow the season's mandate In keeping to the right. , - ' ' V " Just below, at the left of the group, black velvet and gold cloth . brocaded with black achieve a handsome Na poleon hat, which also has a soft crown. Except for a sash and tie of narrow gold ribbon about the j crown It is without trimming. This Is one of several successful off-the-f ace V hats. Opposite it a large velvet hat Is faced with beaver. Its brim Is turned up at the front and a handsome ornamental pin fastens It to the crown. With this hat a wide scarf of angora yarn makes a neckpiece to correspond, taking the place of fur. , ' . C Siberian squirrel fur the lightest of the - gray squirrel skins makes the spirited turban at the bottom of the group. A small cascade of fine lace, with a bit of fur along the plaited edge, results in a trimming that cannot be Improved upon. , All these models are worn well down over the head and not an ear is visible.
