have made her famous is a creator of
original style. "Besides adding a
touch of softness and color to a
pretty frock it's a convenient little re

knows what to do with."

ADVICE TO JUNE
BRIDES "LOVE NOT ALL OF MARRIAGE
BY MADAME SCHUMANN-HEINK
The Famous Diva
, Some clever Englishman has said
that it takes three generations of
gentlemen to develop a case of gout,
and I would say that it takes three
generations of gentlewomen to de
velop a successful wife.
Don't mistake me. I do not mean
that a successful wife must have
high birth. One of the most suc
cessful wives I know is my laundress,
who was born of the German peas
Neither is it necessary for a girl
to be born of wealth. The richest
girl of my acquaintance is impossible
as a wife. The successful wife, how
ever, must be well bred. She may
get her breeding from her parents,
from her environment or from the
great world, but get it she must.
Happiest is she who is born into
one of the numberless homes of the
great middle class; who has not the
temptation lure that luxury brings
nor to suffer the stultifying process
of poverty and its attendant ills.
In America every boy is born a po
tential president and every girl the
future beloved wife of a man who
must be able to pay income tax.
Marriage is woman's greatest and
most honorable business.
How, then, shall she be trained or
so train herself that she will have
at least the modicum of success?
We step headlong into this serious
affair which we are taught is for "un
til death do us part," and then we
find we have fallen into a pit instead
of setting our feet in a mossy hollow
jthat is inviting to our sotda.
What shall the comine- veneration
of girls do to be saved from this? Not
only must the girls do much, but their
mothers as well.
And the first thing our girls must
be taught is that LOVE IS NOT THE
BE ALL AND END ALL OF MAR
RIAGE. There must be a willingness
to suffer and bear patiently all the
petty tribulations of household

"Awning stripes" are the latest!
Many of the new wash fabrics and
the summer silks come in broadj
stripes of blue and white, green andjf
white, or gray and white, and the)
wide spirt made of these wide stripes
are not unlike the corner grocery
Just as "short as short" is the very
little girl's skirt this summer. And
it's fluted until it flares out as wide
as mother's 1830 skirt
A high collar of soldier blue is the
military touch Dame Fashion gives
to many of the new satin and pussy
willow taffeta blouses. A narrow
belt of blue patent leather is effective
with the military blouses.
The newest veil tips the nose and
it is bordered with narrow black vel
The colored veil in heliotrope, vio
let, and emerald green is another nov
elty, but it's not exactly' popular.
To toss off a glass of water as
soon as one sits down to a meal is an
infringement of table etiquette,
