First, you get the engine go- ing; then you "put her in low." When she's moving a little fast- er, you change her to second speed and finally, when the wheels are going around at a pretty good clip, you shift into high. Why is this ? Because an automobile is a heavy load weigh- ing thousands of pounds. It takes time and lots of power to get that big piece of metal started and rolling along smoothly and rapidly. You can't start an automobile right off at sixty miles an hour. In the same way you can't advertise today and have the or- ders you wart on your desk tomorrow evening. People don't do business that way. You have to tell them what you have to sell and keep on telling them many times over and over to get their orders. Some people are much harder .to start than automobiles and they move more slowly. Some of the readers of this paper are ust as anxious to buy your goods as you .are to sell them. But they don't know abouO them. Tell them what you have got. Start in at once. Tell them facts in your advertisements evmT week and when they are plac. Jng their ordersYOU WILL GET YOURS. The On onville Independent LIKE"00iT .... KNITTED Craze Exists for Dresses, Suits, Blouses and Sweaters. Sport Clethes Play Impoant Part; Two-Piece Suits Are Given Decided Prefence, Women ever have been accused of fickleness, especially In the fancies that they take for Certain types of dress. Very likely, observes a cor- respondent in the New York Tribune, if we took the trouble to Investigate what lies behind fashion,, we would find women less fickle in this respect than mere man supposes--for It is man who always accuses us of this. This leads up to the costume of knitted materials, for which a veri. table crae has developed. They won't last long was the prediction of many people when knitted dresses, suits, blouses and sweaters appeared in such profusion In the latter part of the winter, but the fashion has en- dured and will continue to endure for a long, long time because of the ability of a group of people to lift this tYpe of costume entirely out of the humdrum category of the merely practlcal and not at all beautiful out- door costu`m They have done it by lng knitted wool materials in pat- terns of silk in both contrasting and harmonizing shades and also through the introduction of wonderful em- broideries on knitted fabrics. Conse- quently, weflnd ourseles in the midst New Frenoh Sweater of Dull Gray Woolw With Brocaded Pattern in Red SHk; of a seaso where pastime clothes play a more important part than ever before In the history of fashions. Two-piece suits of knitted fabrics are preferred by the conservative woman. These consist either of a skirt and coat or a skirt and over* blouse, the latter In Russian blouse style. Attractive sweater coats In slightly blousing, form are developed in silk and wool BLOUSES OF LINEN REAPPEAR Different Weights and Varied Manlpu. iations Characterize 8ome of the Favored Garments, Linen has cut more of a figure in blouses this season than It has for several seasons, reappearing In dif- ferent weights and different manlpu. lations. At one big cry store this fabric, In a'medlum soft weave, has been eosen for thd development eta new series of overblouses to which is given the name Bretalla. The models are supposed to fill the need for a waistcoat or gilet, but built on ample, long-waisted lines, In- stead of cleft after the manner of a man's belt, They come, therefore, with sleeves and without, but with the sleeved more In the majority. A feature is made of wide box plaits, the whole blouse beIng con- structed in a tailored manner, hang- ing straight from the shoulder and finished with a three r four-inch band. This treatment hu cOme to be known as a Renee idea, with the band fastened t 9 one side of the front in such a manner that It lends |tseJf to adjustment, There Is some use of band-drawn work in addition to the more se- verely bOx plait fronted effects, and it comes in several different collar shapes, but nearl ways swung high. The color range includes orchid, blue, rose and green. The. Styles are also made Up In white, these Introducing color in collar bIndings and pipings.

TWO-TONE HOSIERY IS SMART Silk and Lisle Mlxturem Shown in All Shades, With or Without Colored Clock Stockings of silk and lisle mixtures, In all shades are shown, with or with- out colored clocks. Combinations of silk and wool in similar shades are worn for golf and one of the smartest, perhaps, of all the sport stockings Is a heavily ribbed, coarsely woven all- silk white stocking, which has a very dull finish. Woolen stockings, woven In plaids to match the Argyle sweater, are still very. much In favor, but these brll- liant checkerboard effects have been so overworked that they should only be recommended in the soberer com- binatlons of black, brown, gray and beige with white. For use with white canvas or buckskin shoes for sports or country wear, plain white lisle stockings are being shown. Two-tone silk stockings are offered for Country wear in two new styles. One kJlfu]ly woven stocking (which combines a color with white) gives the two-tone effect at all times. These may be had with or without embroid. ered clocks, In many color combina- tions, including navy blue and white, black and white, and rdovan and white, Nile green and  Ad, or royal changeable, present one color In one light and the other In another. This changeable stocking Is of medium weight and may he had in such com- binations, for example, as mauve and white, Nile green and gold, or royal blue and gold, to mention only a few. ; In conclusion, it Is perhaps unneces- sary to repeat that the trend of the mode as exemplified by the selections made by womdn of breeding, is more and more away from the overelabor- eta shoe.Voge.

TASTY TI D-BITS A delicacy to serve with a cup of tea is round, crisp crackers spread E with cottage cheese and " a marisehino cherry placed in the middle.
