Next door to Peoples Bank Building, MUCH INTEREST BEING AROUSED Much interest is being manifested in the coming annual convention of the Pennsylvania Live Stock Breeders' association, State Horticultural As- aocation of Pennsylvania and the Penn- sylvania Dairy Union, which wilt be held in Pittaburg, January 15-20. While the conventiona are being held in Carnegie Library, Scbenley Park exhibits will be shown in Duquesne Garden and the Scbenley Riding Academy, a few blocks distant from the Convention hall. Tbe three organzations have merged for this purpose, H. E. Van Norman, H. E. VAN NORMAN, professor of dairy husbandry at State College, President of the National Dairy Aaeocation, and secretary of the Pennsylvania Dairy Union, having been ehoaen president of the allied organizations. Eminent lecturers will give talks and demonstrations. All the entries of live stock will be by in- vitation, thus assuring one of the greatest functions of the kind ever het3 in this state. The attractions will be many and instructive. The event will be known as the Midwinter Fair. Pittaburg business men and citizens are talcing a special interest in the displays. One of the features wilt be an exhibit of apples grown in this state, more tnan of which will be given away to the visitors. The object is to awaken an interest in Pennsylvania fruit growing, improvement of live stock and the betterment of the diary husbandry and generally Boost Penn- sylvana. Bricks Ant Hills. Excellent bricks are made of tba Boil of ant hills m Central Africa. The natives tread It with water Into a do ugh I Ike substance, which la shaped iu rough wooden molds, tt la tuen dried In the sun, and afterward baked In native kilns. CREDITS MONESSEN WITH ENTERPRIZE Anent the inquiry now being made here to better the of the working men and to dhow those who in other places the advantage of living in Moneesen when they are em- ployed here, the Charlerol Hail comments editorially follows: "The attempt of the Monesaen busi- neee people to induce those who work in that town to move there is but in accord with any movement "designed and executed for the improvement and advancement of a community. As perhaps two or three hundred people who work in Moneasen live leroi, this action on the part of the Monesaen business people ia renented to some extent by the business people here as an effort to build up Monessen at the expense of Charleroi. From a business standpoint Char- 'leroi has no kick coming. The more- ment serves to show where Charleroi ia lacking and emphasizes the necessity of action here to offset conditions which work to the benefit of Mones- sen. The mere fact that two or three btindred Charleroi people earn their living in Monessen shows that oppor- tunity is lacking here to employ them. That being the case, it is up to Char- leroi to try to provide employment for all its citizens so that none will be forced to the trouble and extra ex- pense of being obliged to seek em- ployment out of town. Another commendable thing Mones- aen business people are doing is seek- ing the case why people employed here are not moving to the town. It is generally conceded that rents are too high, and the Monessen people it U understood are trying to bring about a reduction. Other civic movements are planned, it is stated, that will tend to make Monessen a still more desirable place of residence. Mon- essen has a big advantage in the way of affording employment, and if there are drawbacks as a place of residence, nothing ia more natural that those interested should seek to remove them. Monessen is doing nothing repre- hensible in seeking to induce the peo- ple they employ to also make, their homes there. On the contrary the movement shows enterprise and spirit, which are always essential elements in material progress. Charleroi has the same opportunity to maintain her standing and prestige, and if our people sit stiil while Uonessen hus- tles cause will follow effect as inevit- able as night follows day."

RUFFLE COMES INTO ITS OWN Pretty Style of Long Ago Re- turned to Popular aad Will Be Tttere is a decided change able at the bottom of skirts of new models. Especially true Is this on evening gowns and trocfcs for dreaBT afternoon wear and the answer to tfee question Not fluffy ruffllw, but scant, flat ruiaies or lace or not placed on skirts beneath tunics or over drapery and adhering to still popular straight lines of the ccw- tume. Sometimes ruffles are visible only at one sfde under a arossod tuuic At other times the entfra lowr part ol the skirt Is sHffhtlr "bouffant" as th4 French would sar. dns to throe or fire ruffles of lace, tulle or net. Sleeves are made of overlapped ruffles nnder drapery, perhaps. Fichus are edged with ruffles and certainly you have noticed the uaa of ruffles and plaltings of narrow lace on the crowns and brims of hats. Feminine styles are more frilly and feminine than those of last year. Some of us doplore the reversion to 1880 models, but It ia to be expected after the extreme "pipestem" affects that have annoyed and dlagitsttd some of the onlookers Remember that ruffles mast not be applied in only fullness.
