Marie Tempest, who' Is one of the

admirable pannier gowns. There was

Vlien a' mannequin came in ' weah
. ing a pink pannier gown a ? man of
fashion who waa looking at the gowns
with his wife groke into enthusiasm
about It , that the mannequin was
swirling and : swaying before him as
. though she were posing for living pic
tures, lie said emphatically it was the
f best looking gown he had seen in
' Paris, and I have learned to listen
with respect to a man'a opinion about
a costume. He may not know the ways
and wherefores.', the cost or the ' name
on the label, but he has an amaiing
way of knowing what Is becoming to
a woman, what gown has good lines
and not false-ones.
This frock was; a rose pink taffeta.
The lower skirt was narrow and plain,
and the panniers jwere. formed by side
plaits arranged Into the belt, facing
each other In two groups, and then
norrowed into a curved hem well be
low the knees. You can easily see how
this, manipulation gave the width
between the knee and hip, and the fa
bric had body enough to keep the
plaits' from 'falling in.
The bodice' was a-casual affair of
Dink tulle aifl pink, taffeta, with float
ing sleeves that were caught about
tbe arm in much the same careless
graceful way. that Downey draped the
arms of Lady Hamilton. ine gown,
even .thought It represented a modern
fashion, had a charming Old World
air, and distinctly suited the demure--r
ness of the girl who wore it-
It would be an enchanting frock for
a debutante. The spread of the pan-
' nier is far enough down on the figure
to give grace, and It allows a long line
from shoulder to knee to be preserved
It could be repeated! in white, and
some one has imitated it after a meas
ure in plnli and blue" taffeta, but I
think it is at-its best in this rather
delicate shade of rose pink

passed around the figure in straight
lines or on the bias, and then looped
up into a drapery at the back that is
strongly reminiscent of the days of
the Grecian bend.
Many of the gowns have this dra
pery 'of the back, which in soft ma
terials is just a series of bunched-up
effects, and In the harsher materials
is effected by flat folds caught up one
under the other. At the opening al
Paquln's, Claire, the chief designer,
wore a gown of dark blue charmeuse
satin, 'with blue chiffon cloth over it.
Which was draped up across the fi
gure in these flat folds in front above
the knee. It shortened the skirt in the

This manipulation of drapery was
tried on many gowns this autumn,

bring it into popular fashion, but any

filet squares and the size the cover is

put a filet square and put two other

the two outer strips are slightly lon

These connecting strips, three to
each side, and one at each end, are of
linen worked in a conventional de
sign in eyelet embroidery. They
should be as much narrower than the
squares as two widths of Cluny in

strip. Thus if the filet squares are
fiyg inches, and the insertion an inch
wide, the strips of linen should be
three inches wide.

Instructive as welt
On old-fashioned spelling book
must be procured, with all the hard,
long words at the back, so that when
the evening is well advanced, the one
who gives out the words can quickly
decimate the ranks. Two persons are
selected as captains, who proceed to
"choose up." Of course each captain
wants tbe best spellers on his side,
but he is in the dark unless many sim
ilar entertainments have been held.
There should be a reward for the
winner, a reward for the one who goes
down first, and a reward for the cap
tain who picks the winner. The re
ward should be simple, and of small
intrinsic value. The captain who has
the first choice begins, the spelling.
When any one on his side misses a
word, the "tapper," a person designa
ted by the captain, spells It on the
other side. If he should miss it, it goes
back to the speller next to the per
son who had to sit down, and so on.
At first only easy words should be
given, so that no one will have the
humiliation of dropping out the first
round ; but as progress is made
through the book, the ranks will grow
shorter, until the "words of six sylla
bles" are reached, and the catch word
in the last pages of the little old green
book. By that time ail but a few of
the spellers will be seated. They con
tinue the battle until but one remains.
