BEIJING - A series of mysterious blasts ripped through buildings in the North China city of Shijiazhuang early yesterday, killing at least 18 people, according to China's official Xinhua news agency. Xinhua said one of the blasts occurred near a workers' dormitory attached to the state-owned Number Three Cotton Factory. The Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, an independent watchdog/news agency in Hong Kong, said there were four separate explosions. It said that 170 people lived in the dormitory next to the Number Three Factory and that - 12 hours after the blast - only 28 people had been rescued.

I told a friend I was going to Memphis."Memphis?" he said. "Isn't that where the ducks march?"It certainly is. Twice a day, in fact. But there's more to Memphis than the Peabody ducks marching down a red carpet in the venerable hotel's lobby -- although that is a most charming feature of this Tennessee town.Perched on a bluff with the Mississippi River as its front yard, this city of nearly 700,000 is a kick-back place where friendliness oozes out of its citizens like honey from a comb, and where you can spend several days discovering its curiosities.

I expect a visit next year from an English cousin who is interested in seeing a cotton field in bloom. Can you tell me when and where one can visit such a field?Cotton is grown in 17 states, from Virginia to California. Planting begins as early as February, in South Texas, and as late as June, in the northern area of the Cotton Belt.Seven to nine weeks after the cotton is planted, creamy to dark yellow blossoms appear. Over the next three days, the blossoms gradually turn pink and fall off, leaving a tiny ovary attached to the plant.

Last Tuesday, Linda Cotton listened intently when the doctor who handed her a 10-day supply of antibiotic, Cipro, warned of possible side effects. Hours after taking her first pill, she knew exactly what he was talking about. First came splitting headaches, then nausea and a nagging irritability that hasn't yet quit. "This drug isn't easy," said Cotton, who is toughing out what she hopes will be just three more days of treatment. "But you pretty much do whatever it takes to make sure you're safe - that goes without question."

You pick up your summertime favorites from the cleaners. Crisp cotton shirts, easy linen skirts, soft silk dresses.You slip into one of them, feeling very summery.Then you walk out into the 90-degree heat and wilt.Crisp cotton turns soggy. Drapey silk goes limp. And yes, linen is supposed to wrinkle, but isn't looking like crumpled gift wrap a bit ridiculous?The dilemma: do you opt for the cool comfort of natural fibers, or do you look presentable for the lunch meeting, the after-work drinks or the Big Date?

Macon Hardy enjoys fashion, but don't call this business development representative for ETI Professionals Inc. trendy. "Having timeless pieces and looking put-together is important to me. I don't like clothes that will be out of style next season. If you think you're going to look silly in it next year, then don't buy it," says the 23-year-old Federal Hill resident. When we "glimpsed" Hardy at Cinghiale in Inner Harbor East, she looked every one of her "5 feet 9 inches and some change" in her "conservative and classy" style.

Q: Last summer for the first time, I started playing tennis with some of my business associates. The first time, I appeared with a blazer over my tennis clothes and felt remarkably out of place. The rest of the summer, I wore spring sweaters, which were more appropriate but still wrong and uncomfortable in the sweltering heat. By the end, I realized a windbreaker was the answer. I recently set out in advance of the tennis season to purchase my first windbreaker since childhood. I found designer windbreakers in the hundreds of dollars range, so I headed for a discount store where I found one for $20. When I tried it on at home, the zipper broke immediately.
