shaking his fist at the landlord.
"YoiMnsolent ruffian!" he shouted.
"Rhoda, my dear, pay this man all

better keep out of my way, after be

LAST YEAR'S GOWN IN THIS
Fashion and Economy seem to be
"hand in glove" this season.
The woman who feels that she
can't afford a new autumn gown can
without much difficulty convert her
half-worn spring gown into a modish
"creation" with a tunic skirt and a
waist rejuvenated with a vest of or
gandie and sleeves of black satin.
If the dress to be remodeled has
a straight skirt, and it doubtless has
if it is last season's fashion, it may be
brought up to date with a flounce or
a double flounce of satin, moire or
taffeta, the flounces giving it the line
of the new Russian tunic.
Satin or slk sleeves are fashion's
latest fancy and the material used to
make a flounce may be also used to
make new sleeves; the waist itself
may be recut into a jumper, and a
vest of white organdie will give it
the right fit at the neck and give the
whole dress a touch of up-to-dateness.
Before the old dress is cut into,
however, it should be very carefully
brushed and sponged or cleaned be
fore you start to make it over. Clean
ing will freshen it so that you will
feel as if you had a new dress and
not a made-over one. Dying is worth
considering if the old color is out of
style. Hooks and eyes, patent fasten
ers and buttons should be gone over
carefully, frayed skirt braids should
be replaced, and worn laces, chemi
settes, etc., discarded. You may find
that you need a fresh waist lining if
the old one is badly worn, too light at
the waist, etc.
