DAME FASHION changes her decrees
so often that it makes the heads of
mortals fairly whirl.
Already she has begun to select her
Spring apparel, and hints of it have
begun to invade the Portland shops.
Among the newest things here is the
cross-stitch ribbon, a French importa
tion, which is marvelously beautiful
and not a little expensive. The ribbons
will be used for girdles this Spring,
according to the buyers Jn the shops.
They look much like ancient Egyptian
handwork. The work resembles the old
fashioned cross-stitch in fantastic de
signs. Other ribbons; almost all of
which are wide, are used in making the
basque girdles which are so popular
just now. Solid colors and black seem
to be the most popular. .
Frills from France have risen in
value since the war, and those from
England and Germany have risen pro
portionately. Veils ordered from Mallnes In Bel
gium previous to the war have not ar
rived and probably will not. In the
opinion of the buyers in local shops

chiefly from Switzerland, are being

hand-hemstitched borders and hand em

ribbon around the hips. They are made
of heavy black satin.
A feature in girdles is the straight
band of ribbon that starts aKthe waist

They are fllmy-looking, and are used
for trimming for evening gowns more

How Mr. Fox Warn Canglit
IT had been a hard Winter for Mr.
Fox. He had not found it easy to
enter the barnyard of the farmer on
the hill on account of the big watch
dog, who seemed to sleep with one eye
open and always saw Mr. Fox creeping
over the hill. So when Spring came Mr.
Fox was far from being in the condi
tion he liked to be, and, besides that,
he was hungry.
Under the hill not far from the farm
house lived Madame Goose and her 10
little goslings. The house had been
well locked at night all the Winter, but
now it was warmer. Mr. Fox won
dered if he might not have a window
open, or perhaps the door might not
be so tightly closed.
"I believe I will pay my respects to
Madam Goose," he said one night
Mr.- Fox straightened his collar and
put on his high hat; then he took his
cane from behind the door and started
for the home, of Madam Goose.
"That looks to me like Mr. Fox com
ing over the hill." said Madam Goose
to herself. She was looking out of her
window just before going to bed and
saw the top of Mr. Fox's high hat
Madam Goose blew out the light and
tucked the clothes more snugly around
her 10 little goslings; then she ran
downstairs and made sure the windows
were fastened. Then Madam Goose
went to the door and did a very strange
thing she unlocked the door.
-"He thinks he Is a very smart fel

the stairs again; "but he may find out

Mr. Fox. did come close to the door.
He walked boldly up to It and knocked
twice with his cane-; of course, be did
not try it, he was far too polite to do
that until he had knocked.
Madam Goose put her head out of
the uppe"r window. "Who Is there?"
"Good evening, dear Madam Goose."
said Mr. Fox, lifting his high hat. "I
came to pay my respects. I have been
so busy this Winter that I could not
attend to all my social duties."
"You . are most 'kind to call, but it

replied Madam Goose. "With knitting

to call on my friends in the barnyard."
"Yes! Yes!" said Mr. Fox. twirling
his hat on his cane. -"I did try several
times to call, and each time I would

"Why don't you come in?" asked
Madam Goose. "You will find the door
unlocked, I think. Go right in and I
will be down."
Mr. Fox was so completely surprised
by this invitation that he did not stop
to think, as he usually did, but tried
the door, and sure enough, it opened.
He stepped In and then, before he
knew what was happening, he founa
himself in the cellar on his back.
He made such a racket that all the
little goslings jumped out of bed.
"Oh! mother, dear, what' has hap
pened?" they cried all at once. "Has
old Mr. Fox come to carry us off?"
"Hush! hush!" said their mother.
"Get back into your beds or he will,

bed in a hurry. I can tell you, when

DEAR MISS BLAKE: A lively argu
ment arose last night at our dub
meeting over a woman's influence over
man. No conclusion was arrived at, but
I was commissioned to write to Doris
Blake and get her view on the subject.
The point of the argument was that if
woman wields an influence over man
in everything, then In the last analysis
the responsibility of evil rests with
woman. liELEN B.
No one who knows anything of the
world and of human nature will doubt
the fact that women wield a tremen
dous influence over men.
. Ever since Eve offered the apple to
Adam in the Garden of Eden feminine
Influence has been felt right down the
ages. And there is no doubt about it
that the power that women possess can
be used mightily for good or evil.
It has been said that in all circum
stances woman has the privilege of
saying "no." It teems rather a shame
to lay the responsibility of things on
the weaker shoulders, bnt there is no
disputing the fact that in most cases
the final decision "for or against" Ilea

munity. For men are extraordinarily easily

it should be, this is the most powerful
