BOX 282 THE WINDMILLS OF HOLLAND It Is said that there are ten thous- and windmills In Holland. The num- ber is said, however, to he less than it was fitly years ago, for the Dutch have, In a measure, subs'itutod steam and other forms of power for the capric- ious wind, On the eastern end of Long Is- land there I.e seeit old windmills. The curious nuly observe that tliero i-, a tiny windmill In many easels, perched on the lop or.ricsite the great arms, a feature that. a elng's curleel tall. Those who nave in- vestigated the mechanism of thc windmill know that the little winei- mill is the Yankee's ine'hod of auto- matically kecpins 'the sails on the great arms always in the wind. As soon as the w'ind changes, it puts the small whepl in motion, and this quick- ly rolls the ton of the tower and the big wheel around until It again faces the wind. Then, being itself, out of the wind, It. stops. Whenever the wind changes in Holland, hundreds of mill-keepers come-forth and labor- iously turn the tops about, by hand. They may be seen pushing and strain- ing on thc galleries surrounding thc towers midway between the ground and the top, or tugging at, the spokes of a wheel on the ground., Xaanland Is especially the homo of the windmill.

Mr. Asquith's reply was non-com- mittal. He said that a memorandum had been prepared at the express wish of the Canadian government which defined with fullness the pre- cise position adopted by the Imperial j government. This would he laid he-! fore the house without delay but it] was now before the Canadian govern-! merit. Mr. Fall, of Fallmoulh, asked the first lord 01 the admiralty when men of war for the defence of the empire had been built, or were being built (luring the last four years, South Af- rica, Malay'States, New South Wales, and Canada, il this would be in ad- dition to those voted by parliament and was the shipbuilding program deemed sufficient by thc admiralty'?

This question, which was raised by Mr. T.

It; is to. the effect that all blouses must come close to thc throat, and must not have any lace on the front, and that no large bows on the shoes, and no open-work stockings are permitted. "A breach of these added Mr. Powell, "would mean .that the ladies would be relieved of tlicir du- ties."

"Tlie smarter the appearance of the girl clerk, typist, or secretary, the better, in my opinion, for thc firm which employs her." HOW THE MOTHERS COULD.

I The Lord of and the Ovnr IJssel Monastery were parties to a suit involving the question as to who owned thc wind nnd enjoyed thc right to employ it.

The engagement o-f Princess Eliza- beth, oldest daughter of Prince Ferd- inand, heir-apparent of Kouinania, to Crown Prince Doris of Bulgaria, is an- nounced officially. Prince Boris has distinguished him- self in the forefront of the battling against the Turks. If the cherished purpose, the ambition for which the allies arc struggling, be accomplished, Princess Elizabeth will in due time be seated as Czarina on the llrrone of the United Balkan Empire. Princess Elizabeth has a bright dis- position, is always In thc open air, and is devoted to athletic sports. Her father is nephew and heir-apparent to King Chajies of Kouinania. Princess Elizabeth's mother, Princess Marie of Snxe-Coburg Gotha Is the daughter of Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh. The charming Princess, who lias pro- mised her hand and heurt is the great grand-daughter of Queen Victoria. So the descendant cf the Sovereigii- of India, as Disraeli (Lord Beaconsfield) made her, may be her- self an Empress.

For that reason black and white, or all blaclc or all white (in the summer) arc .worn by the girls here. In black I include any very dark color.
