PLAIDS ALWAYS IN DEMAND
Now Bid Fair to Be More the Rage
Than They Have Been for
Tho material most commented on
at present is Scotch plaid, which Is al
ways associated with autumn, says tho
Indianapolis News. Numbers of fash
ionable women aro ordering two skirts
with thc3o new plaid costumes. Tho
semi-fitting jacket covering tho hips
is worn with a short skirt mado for
tho country. The material just touches
tho ankles, and tho trimming consists
of a wldo box plait, back and front.
The samo box plaits repeat them
selves on tho second skirt, ordered for
town wear. Below the knees startB
a llounco of tho plaid material with
narrow box plaitB touching ono an
other. This flounce adds extra width
to the now autumn skirts.
Straps in plaid trim the Jacket at
tho back, starting at the sldo beneath
a long, square steel buckle. A couple
of rovers in surah widon as they crosB
tho shoulders and form a hood ending
in a point at tho waist Ono largo
plaid button fastens tho Jacket below
The colffuro matters not at all with
ono of theso quaint now evening caps
which faro much tho fad for theater
wear. Tho cap Ih mudo of pearl bead
ed gold not, which la mounted over
thin silk'. Heavy pearl bead nnd tas
sol oruamonts at tho sides drag tho
cap down over the ears. Tho hair Is
Boftly waved and drawn Huffily boyond
the edgo of the cap.
DESIGN FOR SILK STOCKINGS
Oriental Characters Are the Latest to
Be Used by Those Who Llko
Girls who are fond of needlework
will want to embroider themselves
two or moro pairs of silk stockings
In tho now fashionable Oriental do
signs. Select a good grado of Bilk stock
ing woven with thread silk, black or
any color you desire; thou with a
sharp-pointed piece of tailor's chalk
outline a design representing somo cu
rious Chinese or Japaneso symbol,
lettering or number.
These can bo found In any Oriental
shop or on a Chinese laundry check.
Thoy are not difficult to sketch, being
for tho most part broad lines crossing
each othor In a curious manner.
These should bo slightly padded
with very soft darning cotton, so that
tho center will bo raised abovo tho
outer edgo. The embroidery is then
dono in fine floss silk, using brilliant
red, green, yellow, purplo nnd blue. All
colors rich In tone aro effective, and
occasionally threads of silver and gold
can be Introduced in tho embroidery.
Care must bo takon when applying
the work to colored Btocklngs that the
colors used in the embroidery harmo
nise with that of the stocking ItBelf.
Any color or combination of colors
can bo used on black.
Tiny beads and small flowers aro
lovely when worked In rich Oriontal
colors. For example, a spray of wis
taria Is charming on violet silk stock
ings. Cherry blossoms on whito or
green, Iris on blue or yellow, and tho
flaming poppy on black.
When working, an easy way to keep
the Btocking taut so tho embroidery
will Ho smooth is to slip a china egg
or very smooth darning egg Into tho
stocking, then hold the silk tightly
over that aB you would for ordinary
darning. The embroidery will then
be perfectly smooth when worn.
A weak solution of permanganate of
potash will tint laces that deep shado
of ecru so much used at present.
It must bo carefully dissolved, oth
erwise it will produco Btalna which,
are impossible to romovo.
Test tho dye with a small plcco of
muslin beforo dipping tho lace. If tho
color 1b too dcop, dlluto tho (solution
until tho required huo Is obtained.
Never nllow tho laco to remain in
tho dyo; simply dip in nnd out again.
Tea or a solution of coffee Is excel
lent to tint laccH. Tho lattor pro
duces tho fashlonablo string color.
Lace trimmings to match tho ma
terial of tho frock aro much used this
With two or threo slmplo colora
even an amateur can produco good re
sults. French Raincoats.
Tho French raincoat is un excollont
ono to wear with flno gowns. It is
mado of rubberized crepo do chlno and
peau do sole. Theso coats are excel
lent protectors, and yet aro so light
in weight that thoy will not leavo their

Albanian, for ho has lived slnco birth
In a fighting atmosphere, and his skir

of bread and milk, or bread and cheese
for dally fare, and roast mutton often
from over tho border on feast days.
The Albanian Is temperate, as well as
frugal, a pint of rakl whisky distill

shares whatever he has with a
