TOPICS OF INTEREST TO EVERY .WOMAN
DAME FASHION FAVORS
THE RUSSIAN BLOUSE
Skirted Coat Are Promised Great Pop
nlarity This Spring.
Russian blouse effects are becoming
more and more popular, and the latest
models for winter costumes indicate
clearly that Dame Fashion Intends mak
ing a decided change in all gowns before
long, especially In the street costumes.
Bloused and belted coats with long skirts
edged with fur are far more fashionable
than any other kind of coat, whlla In
the sleeves and the way the coat Is
fastened every detail Is decidedly unlike
what has hitherto been accepted. All
this may sound painfully depressing if
th'e winter wardrobe already has been
completed, but no woman who has care
fully selected her gowns this winter need
bo alarmed for fear of looking old
fashioned, for these new models have
only Just made their appearanco and
are so far in advance that there will
not be many seen until the spring, when,
unless something absolutely unforeseen
occurs, the fashion will bo firmly estab
lished. It Is a model that looks best
made in velvet, satin, or light-weight
wool. It is not satisfactory In the heavier
materials for It makes the figure too
shapeless and large.
The coat Is cut so that when opened
and turned back it will still look fin
ished, but revers have for the moment
disappeared In favor of the military
stjle, and the small round Inch piece of
fur, the front of the coat trimmed with
bands of cord or braid
Apparently the end and aim of the de
signer is now to do away entirely with
stiff straight lines and hate the draped
effect the more prominent. The shoul
ders of tho blouse coat are quite unique
with the material gathered Into the
shoulder seam under a band or strap.
This fashion has much to recommend
It, the principal thing being that this
gathering at the shouler permits the
material of the waist to be so arranged
as to bo far more easily fitted and to
give such lines as are moro becoming
Sleeves also are more easily managed,
for, while waist and sleeves are cut
In one piece, both shoulder seam and
underarm seam can be becomingly
Placed, making tho model possible for
the stout and slender figures
Skirted coats, if long enough, are al
most alwajs becoming, and while a belt
Is apt to be trying to the woman not
blessed with a good figure, most marvel
ous changes can be made by the belt's
being becomingly placed, and then it Is
not a belt intended to be drawn tight
to outline the waist, which makes a lot
of difference. Not jet has tho normal
waist line been accepted in coats, but
a much longer waist Is now fashionable,
and while, as has been said, the belt
does not fit tight to the figure. It de
fines it. in i:harp contrast to the loose
lines of the straight coat that has been
popular for so long a period Double
breasted effects are In great favor, and
both the upper part of coat and Its
skirts fasten quite far over on the left
side, but not In the bias line that has
won such favor the last j ear another
Important detell to be remembered.
Look for goodness, look for gladness.
You will find them all the while.

How Unities Arc Anrard.
Naming the baby is an important cus
tom In all lands. Mohammedans write
names on file slips of paper, then resort
to drawing cuts. Egyptians name three
candles, then take the one which burns
longest. Hindus give mothers the first
choice of names when a child is twelve
days old. Then tho fathers elect another,
and two slips bearing theso names
are held over a lighted lamp The one
burning brightest Is taken. Chinese girl
babies are not worth naming, and are
merely numbered. Chinese boss receive
new names when they are twenty.
BOYS THINK SWEARING
A MANLY OCCUPATION
Because Thtj Hear Tkek Fathers and
Big Brothers IaWt k
By FRANCES SHAFFER. '
It is nothing new, this revolt against
tho established order of things, whereby
woman must early learn tho lesson of. re
pression, of conventionality, and the long
creed-embodied In tradition, etiquette,
end that comprehensive expression,
But, after all, there are worse things.
One would sometimes think that the re
volt Is becauso woman yearns to Join the
fUghta that lead to Bohemia, covets the
license pardon me of profanity and In
gereral desires to retrograde to the level
of maj's liberty i rather than advance to
clearer heights than even the best of us
Naturally, we have theories about .life,
visions of the millennium, 'and all through
cur dreams runs the One silver thread of
equality; but while we are waiting for
the day to dawn when a higher standard
shall exist for men. suppose we share a
bit of the zeal we expend upon tbe grow
ing girl in our midst with her young
brother and try to lure him away from
some of his false notions, the products
of tho ages.
Teach Boy to Cnard Ills Tongue.
While we are teaching her to guard
well her tongue, why not let the lesson
sink deep Into his heart until he sees
that the pure, clear atmosphere where
wholesome language flourishes and where
Impious speech cannot abide. Is morally
healthful, toning, and satlsftlng?
We are none too good ourselves, but I
am right glad we haven't the license of
I recently heard a boy, attractive and
interesting. In the most flippant manner
give expression to words that would
have come with wretched grace from a
well-seasoned man, and the laugh that
echoed from his masculine auditors was
eloquent with the teaching of the cen
turies. It Is scarcely the boy's fault;
these false ideas of what constitutes
manliness have held their own through
long ages, and whllo hands are raised
to the skies In pious horror If a little
girl departs from the straight course of
pure language, a boy may or may not
be rebuked a bit and emerge from the
experience of giving utterance to his
first oath with a half notion that It Is
his Initial bow to manhood.
It we arc disposed to think there lis
any yoke about our necks It seems to
me a matter of rejoicing rather than
otherwise, even when we most fondly
hope to place a similar restriction upon
man And Isn't it possible that mothers
might convince their sons of the beautv
of pure, straightforward speech and
make that ono standard allko for bos
There is nothing sane or rational In
an oath: there Is much that Is disturb
ing, ugly, and offensive. Right well I
remember how my estimate of a man
who had alwavs challenged admiration
was revolutionized when mischance
brought a trail of words to me that
were meant for other cars.
Mother ."vot Alwnya to Blame.
It Is one of the things to deplore
that a mother In bringing up her bos
I too often must contend against the evil
inftueno of older members of his own
sex. and while she may point the way
to the stars, somehow the boy's Ideal
of manhood reaches out until It gathers
in all the garbled Ideas that he sees
exemplified In the grown folk about him
There Is something more to life than
Just food and clothing, and the father
owes to his family more than bread
winning: he owes the Influence of noble
living, and he surely can extend the ad
vantage of dally talk untainted with pro
fanltj. A manly man Is a mighty fine, gra
cious type for a bov to watch. Mothers
do not want their sons to follow In their
own footsteps and. grow womanly, but
they do not want them to follow- a false
standard of manliness: and bovs natural
ly gravitate to the habits of their fath
ers and big brothers.
Shonld "Piny Fair."
We love to see a good, typical, all
around boy, and will, perforce, grant him
some of tho freedom of the ages, which
he has como to regard as almost dlvine
I) implanted, but we think he should
"play fair." and not offend the ears of
the discriminating, fastidious world by
using language unseemly and unbecom
ing And nc also think when ho has
grown to the dignity of manhood he
should still bear In mind his early train
ing and continue to "play fair." whether
his audience Is mixed or confined to tho3e
of his own sex.
Mothers may plead, but It father or big
brother swears what an ugly word It Is!
the small boy will think It Is tremen
dously fine and Ideal, and straightway
will proceed to weaken his little vocabu
lary. Wo distinctly do not want the license,
but we protest against Its acceptance by
man and its adoption by his faithful im
itator, the small boy in his family.
In preparing cauliflower for cooking let
it He for an hour or so In a pan of cold
water. Do not add salt to the water, as
Is usually done to make vegetables crisp
and tender. The salt In the water kills
any tiny Insects or bugs that might be
hiding under the leaves of the cauliflower.
If put In cold water without salt theso
little pests will crawl out and thus be
got rid of. After soaking In plain water
the cauliflower may bo laid in brine to
freshen and "crlspen."
True Economy in Dress.
To my mind one of the chief objectives
lo aim at in choosing new clothes Is to
select a garment which, for Its beauty
of color, line, and cut. Is distinctive, and
then carefully to contlder whether It will
do duty for the occasions for which It
is required. "To buy with care and wear
with discretion would prove a vaiuaDie

she possesses an ample or a email dross

water over night. In the morning bring

then simmer without boiling two or three

water to the liquid to make 2 cups, and
