Chic Scarf Chief
Paris Style Note
Accessory Is Regarded as
Necessary Decoration i
on All Dresses.
The scarf, both as an accessory and
as a component part of the fashion
able costume, Is a dominant Idea.
Every Important dressmaker, notes a
Paris fashion correspondent, in the
New York Tribune, Is using the scarf
In many forms, attached to or cut in
one with the . dress with which It
is worn. Chanel, Vionnet, Cherult,
Lanvan, Boulanger, Renee, Madeleine
et Madeleine, Callot, Jenny and a
number of other dressmakers with
large followlngs show models in both
day and evening dresses and day and
evening coats in which the scarf is
the dominant Idea.
Ingenuity has been put to the ex
treme In the cutting of these new
scarf effects. Muny of them are a
part of the garment. Vionnet extends
panels at the back and front of her
dresses to form scarf ends. She draws
Into girdle fullness certain of her day
dresses by means of long scarf ends
cut in one with the body fullness.
Chunel attaches scarfs to the back
or front of her dresses in yoke-like
form. She also aiids to both her day
and evening dresses long scarfs of
tulle or chiffon separately attached at
the shoulder or collar of the dress.
Often these scarfs are in contrasting
color. The long end may be left to
trail on the floor from the shoulder to
a length of more than a yard or the
same scarf may be wrapped about the
neck and shoulders and left to fall
gracefully from one side or the other,
according to the fancy of the wearer.
Sometimes scarf ends begin as a
flounce or n wide bias hand on the
skirt, the long free end being left to
he cnuglit up and passed around to
the front. Chanel has a lovely model
of this kind in which the scarf Is vivid
emerald green, the only touch of color
on an otherwise all hluck dress.
In sports wear the scarf Is equally !
Important, as every coat or sweater
has Its matching scarf whether It be
knitted or nuide from a fabric. The
separate scarf of brllliant-hued printed
silk took nil the autumn resorts by
storm, and one feels sure from the
preparation now in hand of beautiful
novelties of this character that no
toilette will be complete this winter
without a scarf of some sort, either as
an accessory or component part.
Friday evening "Bashful Mx.
Bobbs," a farce comedy In three acts,
was presented by the high school.
It was a great success. There was a
dance after the play. Midnight sup
per was served at the hotel.
Saturday evening, Jan. 19, Hard-
man basketball team played Lexing
ton on the lattep's floor. At the end
of the first half the score stood 4
to 3 In Hardman's favor. At the
end of the game fhe score was 12
to 7 in Lexington's favor. The re
turn game will be played at Hard
man February 1. The girls' teams
of the two schools will also play
Atj the dance Friday night it was
announced that there will be anoth
er dance here Jan. 25. This dance
will not be given until February 1,
after the basketball game.
Will Miller of Hardman, who has
been suffering for several months
from dropsy, died in John Day Sat
urday morning. The funeral will be

Salem, Or., Jan. 17. To the Edit
or) It is noted from the press re
ports as well as from remonstrances
filed with this commission, during
the last few days, that Willamette
Valley Hay Growers have the im
pression that our recent state wide
reduction of rates upon shipment of
hay within Oregon will shut the Wii-
Jlamette Valbsy hay growers out of
I coast and valley points.
It is claimed that the hay grower
of Eastern Oregon will flood these
! markets with hay from Haines, Her-
miston, Bend, Redmond, etc. Our
maximum distance scale reduced the
rate from 'Eugene to Marshfield, for
example, from 16 cents per hundred
pounds to 14 cents per hundred
pounds, the distance being 122
miles; and the same graduated dis
tance scale, based on actual mileage,
reduced the combination of locals,
Hermiston to Marshfield, for exam
ple, from 45 to 29 cents, the dis
tance being 435 mile3. Surely the
reduction in rates, resulting In $2.90
per ton, from Eugene to Marshfield,
as against a rate twice that amount,
$5.80 per ton, from Hermiston, will
not ruin the Lane county farmers'
chances in the Coos Bay market. .
Objections to our order are based
upon misinformation furnished by
propagandists such as hay dealers in
Western Oregon. These people are
deliberately misleading the valley
farmers to further their own inter
ests. As illustrative of the reduction in
hay rates applying from eastern Ore
gon to valley points, the rate from
Haines to Corvallis is reduced from
41 cents per hundred pounds to
"9 cents per hundred pounds; from
Redmond to Corvallis, 34 cent3
to 22 cents. The Klamath Falls rate
to apply, after the completion of the
Matron cut-off, will b(e 19 cents.
The Willamette Valley is destined
to become a vast dairying section,
and it will be necessary to look to
Eastern Oregon for its superior
grades of hay. Our order will ma
teiially benefit Eastern Oregon as
well as Western Oregon and coast
