"Needed Legislation for Women and
Children" was discussed yesterday be
fore the Lents Parent-Teacher Assoc!- j
ation by F. M. Dempsey, Deputy Dis
trict Attorney. He explained that two'
diiis were to oe prepared ana euDmu
tcd at the next session of the Oregon
. Legislature. One measure Is. to estab
lish an independent Juvenile Court for
yrs f , :
coachman's. The seamed fitting about
the waist is the beginning of the cir
cular tails and the high, stand-up col
lar and revers are also there. A par
ticularly attractive model of this fash
Ion is of dark blue, almost black, gao
ardine. Grossgrain taffeta cuffs are
bounded on both sides by a strip of
British nink Donlin. The lining of the
coatj is as handsome as the outside, for
it. s or DDUiin arm oriLibii yiuiv.
A cloak with a novel atmosphere, and
suggestive of the olden days also, is
loose and of cream poplin. Three rows
of velvet at the bottom balance with
two at the cuffs. Great flat buttons
fasten It in front The collar Is al
most like shawl. When not turned up
it runs back from the V-shaped front
and forms a great square, cape-llKe
collar in the- back.
Just like soldiers' is the blue gab
ardine coat with epaulets and straps
across the front. The military coliar
is of sand-colored poplin and the straps
across the bosom, three of them, are
tan peau decygne. A belt of blue in the
back is attached to the sides of the
coat with imitation cut steel buttons,
and there are little straps to o& the
belt in place.
611t sleeves, a gay striped silk col
lar and ' a great turned-upside-down
rever proclaim another blue gabardine
notable and stunning. The striped silk
is blue white and a bit gold, with the
colors arranged so that the collar is
like an old log cabin piece of fancy
work. The silk Is on the sleeves also
and they are slit for several inches.
The rever begins, where the collar ends
and gradually gets wider until at the
bottom it's about seven inches wide.
It flies loose and displays another piece
of the attractive silk, which is also
used to line the coat.

BEST COUGH MEDICINE FOR YOUNG
AND OLD-OM THAT ALWAYS CURES
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Is Unquestionably the Best Cough
Medicine in Use. Ask Any One Who Has Tried It.
Tou can gain some idea of the value
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and
of the esteem In which it Is held by
those who have beerf cured, by It by
reading the following extracts from
their letters, but to know its real
value requires a personal trial.
Mrs. Richard Reed, Manchester, N.'T.,
writes: "My ' mother having used
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for a
number of years with satisfactory re
sults. I did not .hesitate to give it to
my little girl a year or so ago, when
she caught a severe cold and developed
a dreadful cough. I found Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy superior to any
thing in that line, that we- had pre
viously used, in our familj .One Aoee
gave my daughter relief -and before
she had usee! one bottle she was cured."
Mrs. 'Joseph Anderson, Manchester,
N. Y., writes: "In the Spring of 1908,
when my two girls had whooping
cough, the only medicine I gave them
was. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It
relieved their spells of coughing won
derfully. They liked to take it as It
bag a pleasant taste. When given
freely as directed there fs little danger
from the disease."
Mrs. Charles Thurber, Boston, N. T.,
writes: "I have found Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy to be Just splendid for
coughs and colds. It has been used
in our family off and on for five years
and has never failed to afford quick
relief or. to effect a positive cure."
