DYE SHORTAGE IS SERIOUS
If the war In Kurope goes on a year
longer there will not ba any such a
thing as a woolen suit procurable in
the United States.
Kverythlng; will bo shoddy, and the
shoddy will cost as much or more than
wool costs now.
There will be practically no such a
thing as a suit which will be guaran
teed fast color by next Hummer, owing
to the dye shortage caused by tha war.
Manufacturers announce that, up to
the present lime, there is not a thin?
In eight to relieve the dye situation.
Blue and blnck suits only for women,
and blues, grays and blacks for men,
with stripe effects for youm; men. will
be the resulting styles from tho dyo
shnrtago In the coming season.
Suite for men that cost 120 now w ill

It. W. Benton I'ses Thrilling Hand-Over-Hand
Method in Climbing;
to Dizzy Heights.
11. W. Ronton, the Chicago steeple
jack, was undaunted by tho rain and
the slippery pole yesterday morning,
and in less than half an hour had scaled
the flagstaff on the Armory and ad
justed a new halyard, letting Old Glory
float in the stiff breeze. His mission
was primarily to put the flagstaff in
condition for the large flag which will
fly therefrom on Lincoln's birthday,
Washington's birthday and other occa
sions. The halyard had been broken
for some time.
The flagstaff is 50 feet high and the Ar
mory roof is 70 feet from the ground.
A good-sized audience was on hand to
witness the work yesterday morning at
Mr. Renton's method is thrilling to

feet to each hand he grabbed hold of

Mr. Renton has been performing
practical feats from dizzy heights for
the last 15 or 20 years, without an ac

He probably will be temporarily locat
