“Fatou Anni is nearly one hundred

With dignity and majesty and with
great beauty of carriage, the old wom­

and the Bedoulty followed her.
Into the Desert
A week after the caravan of t'ue Due
de Tremont left Algiers, Julia Red
mond came unexpectedly to the villa
of Madame de la Maine at an early
morning hour. Madame de la Maine
saw her standing on the threshold of
her bedroom door.
“Chere Madame." Julia said. "1 am
leaving today with a dragoman and
twenty servants to go Into the desert.”
Madame de la Maine was still In
bed. At nine o'clock she read her pa­
per« and her correspondence.
“Into the desert—alone!”
Julia, with her cravache In her
gloved hands, smiled sweetly though
she was very pale. “I had not though'
of going alone, Madame." she replied
with charming assurance, "I knew you
would go with me."
On a chair by her bed was a wrap
per of blue silk and lace. The com
tesse sprang up and then thrust her
feet Into her slippers and stared at
"What are you going to do In the
desert ?"
"Yes, yes!” nodded Madame de la
Maine. "And your aunt?”
"Deep In a bazaar for the hospital,"
smiled Miss Redmond.
Madame de la Maine regarded her
slender friend with admiration and
envy. "Why hadn’t I thought of it?"
She rang for her maid.
"Because your great-grandfather
was not a pioneer!” Miss Redmond

The weird music Oiled the silence of

of the Arabs, not unmusical, though
hoarse and appealing, cried out their

The two women listened silently as

Meaning of Yankee.
Tlure are several conflicting the­
ories regarding the origin of the
word Yankee The most probable is
that it came from a corrupt pronun­

English, er Its French from Anglais.
Ths term Yankee was originally ap­
plied only to the natives of the New
England states but foreigners have
extended It to all the natives of the
United States and during the Ameri­
can Civil war tbe southerners used It
as a term of reproach for all the In­
habitants of the North.
Porto Rico Sugar Indust.-/.
The Important part played by ths
sugar Industry in the material welfare
of Porto Rico Is shown by the figures
of exports. Out of a total valuation of
exports amounting to 143,000,0*9 dur­
ing the fiscal year ending June 30,
1914, sugar alone constituted over $20,-
009,900. This was the lowest sum real­
ized for sugar exports in five years.
Under normal conditions sugar con­
stitutes two-thirds tho total value of

Fans of white gauze with medallions

About Shoes for the Young People
Following in the shoe tracks of thslr
elders, children and half grown young
people are wearing the best-looking
•nd best-made sboea which have fallen
to their lot so far. The correct styles
for children as to shape are those that
follow the shape of the foot, snug
enough not to slip at the heel, and a
little longer and broader than the feet
they are tn clothe, with wide toes,
flexible soles and low heels.
The matter of shape disposed of,
without room for mistake, there Is
left a considerable latitude In choice
of design and finish. All on the same
sensible last, plain, dressy and fancy
•hoes have received almost as much
attention at the hands of manufactur­
ers aa those meant for older people—
and this is saying a lot.
An attractive dress shoe for a child
Is shown In the picture, with white kid
and patent leather combined In a
graceful design. It fastens over the
Instep and ankles with cutout straps
buttoned over black buttons at the
side. The neat machine stitching Is an
Important feature in Its flnlih. A flat
ribbon bow decorates the toe.
For tbe well-<rown miss a pretty
boot Is shown with cloth top, patent
leather trimming and laced fastening.
It la trim In appearance and broader
In the toe than It looks. The narrow
effect la accomplished by the long
point In the tip of patent leather.
Tho plain leather sandals made for
children’s midsummer wear deserve a
good word always.
Worn without
stockings, they help out the youngsters
that are denied the pleasure of running
barefoot, and are so easy to put off
and on that the little people can In­
dulge In the joy of getting their feet
on the ground occasionally.
Braid In Millinery,
Rervlceable, adaptable braid has
been called upon for trimming the
newest tailored hats, and some very
unique effects have been obtained
from Its artistic use. A large chou or
rose of folded white silk braid effect­
ively trims a flno white leghorn. A
three cornered dark brown mllan has
dangling at one side a red apple of
soutache braid alluring enough to
tempt any modern daughter of Eve.
Wide cotton braid with colored bor­
ders band the sports hats of panasna,
silk and peanut straw. Watch tho
braid counters for choice bits if you
wish a new hat trimming.
