The question of a lining- Is perplex.
fng one to the women who dresses lit
white, for the llnlna costs more than
the gown, and to line a fifteen cent cot
ton means ' something when viewed
from the standpoint of the pocket book.
As for the lining, It is a matter that
earihot be Ignored. Ail or very nearly
all of the summer goods are transpar
ent and the lining la distinctly visible,
painfully so sometimes.
Of course It la possible to use the
plain cotton linings, just as one would
with any other gown,' but these lin
lngs do not show up well, and they add
nothing to the beauty of the dress.
If you cannot afford to line well,
1 then do not get a transparent dress, so
the modistes advise. And they send
their customers back to exchange dress
patterns that show the lining too plain

Aa Oft Told Tale.
A smooth tongued agent claiming to
represent a prominent wholesale gro
cery house succeeded in getting f 50 to
SCO from each of many farmers In a
well to do locality. When the goods
arrived, they were delivered at a rail
road Btation in , unbroken packages
properly marked. The farmers did not
examine them until they got home,
when they discovered that the goods
were either very low grade or entirely
worthless. The agent had disappeared.
We again repeat our frequent warning
not to buy goods of a traveling repre
