DONT CO BY GUESS; IT WASTES
By Caroline Coe
Don't cut goods "by guess" not
unless you are an experienced tailor.
Use a pattern and save your time,
temper and material.
Patterns are sp cheap and reliable
it is folly to try to make a garment
without having a pattern correspond
ing to size and style desired.
The patterns should be purchased
"in season." By this I mean, if a
dressing jacket is cut from a pattern
of two years ago it will look the part.
Children's patterns should be nur-
chased the exact size. Many a heart
ache has been caused by mother's
making a pinafore or little suit too
big for the small person who wore it.

STEPS IN THE NEWEST DANCES PORTUGUESE
"HALF CORTES" IN THE "LULU FADO"
BY J. HERVEY WUME . -
The Lulu JFado is derived from the Portuguese folk dance of the same
name. The opening steps are rather difficult, being danced half time to
every other two bars of music, and are followed by the "cortes" a very
beautiful figure when executed correctly. The next variation is the "flirta
tion step," being nothing more or less than the old Spanish Fandango done
in open position. This concludes half the dance. The latter half is danced
exactly the same with the exception that the positions of the lady and
gentlemen are reversed.
