A WORRIED EDITOR
How do lady acrobats in a circus
perform so well and wear corsets at
the same time? Or do they? And if
they do not wear 'em how do they
happen to look so neat and trim?

Baby Saving Dep't I want to say
a word to mothers of "cute" babies.
Don't let your friends or visitors play
with baby too much, for it interferes
with the infant's digestion and sleep
and from a smiling "little dear" he's
very likely to be changed to cross and
fretful child. Remember that moder
ation pays in nearly everything.

Baby Saving Dep't If many
mothers only knew how dangerous
flies really are they -would not laugh
at baby's antics when a fly crawls
over its head or face. Instead they
would do what every mother ought
to do keep all flies and insects away
from the baby by waging a ceaseless
war on the pests from the moment
they make their appearance. Mrs.

HERE'S THE TUXEDO GIRL, HOW DTE LIKE
, Equal clothes-rights with men!
1 That's the important plank in the
Summer Girl's clothes-policy and
she's already putting it in practice
behold the Tuxedo coat!
It was Miss Virginia Rappe of
Paris and Chicago, an artist whose
medium is clothes, not paints nor oils
nor clay who first invaded the mas
culine wardrobe, earned off the Tux
edo coat idea and immediately con
vented it into a chic little street suit
attractive enough for a shopping tour
or an out-of-town journey.
"Personality is the secret of dress,"
says Miss Rappe. "If women would
study their individual style and their
temperament as well, and dress to
suit their personality American wom
en would be the best dressed women
in the world."
Miss Rappe's Tuxedo is a three
piece costume made of English green
and blue mixture. The westcoat like
the coat is patterned exactly after the
masculine garments; the skirt is
only two yards wide
