BROAD, LOOSE BELT FEATURE
OF NEW MODELS
L H& ly.yjagsK1 J
Although built on severely plain
lines this Paris model for an autumn
street coat has a great deal of dis
; tinction. The straight lined coat is
girdled with a broad belt -which is a
feature of many of the fall models.
The costume is developed in black

which is very popular just now.
MAKE OLD VEIL LOOK LIKE NEW
Not all veils worn in America come
from Paris, but many of them do,
and that means that all veils will be
expensive while the world-war lasts.
So it will be well worth while to
look through your store of laces and
see if you are not able to find two or
three veils you had thought you
would throw away. If they are a yard
in length, cut off an eighth of a yard,
thus putting the hard wear ona new
part. Put the veil into a pint bowl,
turn over it two cups of alcohol.
Rinse up and down, squeezing and
rinsing for three or four minutes.
Squeeze out. (Do not wring.) Fold
evenly and hang up in air to dry
S white veils are to be cleaned put
them into the alcohol first Then the
black or colored ones.
Denatured alcohol will do the work
of cleaning but if it is used the veil
must be rinsed last in grain alcohoL
This gives it a natural stiffness.

step, a long, sliding step; the fourth
movement is the twining skating
step. In the. fifth movement, called
la coquette, each partner dances a
few steps to one side of the other
while the hands remain clasped. The
sixth movement is the double arch.
The mazes of the maxixe are mys
tifying no longer.
Of course, there are variations of
the dance, such as the- lulu fado,
which only the advanced disciples of
the modern dance are attempting,
but the real regular maxixe will be
easy for everybody this winter.
The first movement is the prome-
