ROMANCE OF RIBBON
MATTER OF HISTORY
Colorful Adornments Worn
in All Ages.
In all your rumbles among Hie rib
boll counters, did you ever consider
tbe ancient Natnnce of the "ribband?"
Switching one's mood with ribbon Is
not a modern pastime. All through
romantic history, ribbon, glittering and
gleaming, winds Ha silky way.
Always Hie token of love, chivalry
or (Miwer, the "ribband" of old has
appeured now its a love knot, carried
by soma knight as his lady's favor;
now u rosette for u diminutive slip
per; now a single streamer from a
seal of a .locvinent of state.
When Queen KlUllbetli took the
throne ribbon first came Into Its own.
Until belles and beaux of the period
used It lavishly for their n-rsonal
adornment. "Men of meniie rank,"
writes a historian, "weure garters and
shoe rosea of more than live pounds
apiece." As for the Indies, ribbon
richly trimmed their headgears und
formed sprinklings of rosettes and
love knots on their handsome gowns.
Hut In tbe reign of l.ottls XVI, the
favored ribbons amounted to frenay.
Ladles bcribboned every garment, ev
cry accessory, and gave Hie ribbons
such meaning titles aa "attention."
"murk of hope," "downcast eye,' "slgli
of Venus.'' (b'tilletnen Wore hair rib
bons. The practical Scots, however, found
a more useful mission for Ibe ribbon.
In Scotland, down until a unite recent
data, the "snood" or "ribband" on the
hair of a girl meant tltut she was un
married. The name "ribband" comes from the
fact that, before Ibe Mrs! ribbons were
used In Kurope, probably 111 the Six
teenlh century, they were woven on
the hands and borders of garmculs,
and were narrow, like a rib. When
Htay were Mrst manufactured as sep
arate irlmmlngs. tiny were often of
gilt, fc with threads of gold and silver
Interwoven. l'onseiiiently, they were
expensive, and the linglNb parliament
passed an act reserving to nobility tho
right to wear them.
The "blue ribbon" and "red ribbon,"
which are often given today as marks
of excellence, had their origin In Raf
hind. The blue ribbon then designat
ed thai oldest order In England, the
Order of the Hurler; aud the red
ribbon stood for Hie next highest or
der, the Order of the Hiltb.
Another ribbon custom which origi
nated In BnStnnd la that of numbering
ribbons. This numbering was gov
erned by the thickness of the Kngllsh
penny, which was ulniost as large
as our silver dollar.
So, you can Indulge your ribbon fads
and fancies with the assurance that
yuu have historic precedent buck of

Pleasure Spot Holds Grave
of David Kennison.
Many of the thousands of visitors
to Lincoln park have discovered
: fer themselves near the Wisconsin
street entrance u granite boulder set
' with a broti, tablet designating the
s;iot as approximately the buriul
1 puna of David Kennison.
II has been seventy two years since
' Keiinison's death, when, at the age of
I one hundred fifteen years, three Mentha
' and seventeen days, be was the Inst
survivor, of the Huston "ten party."
, Xow Ids grave tublel with the in
acrtptlon. Is the only reminder of a
! life tl'.ut wus picturesque lo more
j ways 1 ban one.
Kennlaoa was an curly settler in
Ciocag as well as a veteran of the
I Revolotlpftnry war and the War of
1812. He came here' In IU'k w hen he
! was MP years old. Since his light
ing days he had been crushed by a
falling tree and wounded by a can
non ball tired at a military review, and
hud only 11 iension of $8 u month to
' uiutntaln him. Nevertheless he started
! weal looking for thrills aud fortune.
For a v . ar or so after coming to
the yourg m.'tropolls on the lake
! shore, Kennison worked ua a day lnl
orer. Then his fame as a "pottrer"
111 itw Boston "tea rmrty" having
spiend, he obtained the post or lec
tin er at Mooney's museum. 7:1 West
Lake street Iltst.le Introducluc
I'rater's Cenuine Vliglnlu tninsireis
and discussing the wax figures and
other strange exhibits, he gave a lec
ture 1 1 each performance on the dump
ing of tea In lb ston harbor.
Kennison was made manager of the
museum In lH4t and he announced
that to the public In the following
"I have taken the museum In this
city, wblcb I was obliged to do In order
to gel a comfortable living, as my
pension is so smuM it scureely affords
1 he comforts of life. If I live unlil
the 17lh of November, 1948, I shall be
112 years old, and I iniend making a
donation party on that day at the
museum. 1 have fought In several
battles for my country. All I ask of
the generous public la to call at the
museum on the 17th of November,
which Is my birthday, and donate to
me what they think I deserve."
The aged patriot not only lived to
be host at his donation party, but al
most four years beyond then. His
death occurred February 24, 1852. The
funeral was held from the First Meth
odist church und the procession was
the most Imposing military turnout
seen In Chlcnga up to thai time. His
body was burled In the cemetery that
then was situated in the present uirk.
After the cemetery had been moved
the Illinois chapter of the Sons of the
Revolution, and the Duughters of the
American Revolution marked bis
grave with the boulder and tablet.
We were nut all in favor of snicker
suits some few years ago. Ilo.vever.

ter of blouse, tie, hosiery and other
details. The strictly tailored and
11 iiunish effects are preferred. The
picture illustrates the jsdnt. The
knitted four-in hand tie Is considered
very smart. The narrow patent
leather belt is the finishing touch.

Fashion's Vogue Bring
the Ostrich Back Again
Ostrich has come back into fashion.
Not ouly millinery reflects the revival
of the ostrich vogue, hut costuming
throughout Is luvisbly giirultured with
ostrich fringe, tassels and other novel
ty effects. Aa a consequence of this
favor for ostrich the old-fashioned os
trich boa is now new fashioned.
Portrait effects through ostrich
placements are part of the charm In
millinery this season. The little roll
