PLAN TO MAKE MENDING EASY
Convenient Arransement to Make the
Task Agreeable and to Do
For some reason or other mending
Is one of the hardest tasks In the week
ly regime of many housewives, and
whenever a woman says that she
dreads mending and does not get time
to do It as she should, she never has
taken the time to put her mending
materials into convenient position.
One of the most convenient little
mending equipments consists of a little
built-in cupboard placed in the side of
the wall of the downstairs sitting
room. On the inside of the door of
this cupboard are placed little shallow
strips of wood and big nails driven
into these strips so that the nails are
exposed perhaps a couple of Inches.
These calls are perhaps an inch and a
half apart. On each of the naS Is a
spool of thread, the white threads ar
ranged together according to the de
gree of fineness. Colored threads are
placed together on another row, and
'various sorts cf mending threads all
grouped together elsewhere.
There are shelves In the cupboard to
hold various mending materials and
there Is one. shelf for stockings and
other-shelves for other sorts of mend
ing. On Monday night or Tuesday when
the dean clothes come In from the
line they are looked over and those
that need mending are put In their
place In this cupboard. The mending
Is always done before Ironing. This
mending cupboard Is downstairs, so It
is a simple operation to transfer the
clothes to the mending cupboard from
the clothes basket. Usually the mend
ing is done Tuesday evening, the moth
ers and daughters of the family taking
it lor granted that some of their time
should be devoted to this work until

MADE-OVER "BARGAIN" GOWNS
Slight Alterations Will Enable the
Transformation Where There Are
Quite frequently shops pffer excel
lent values In dresses that are ex
treme In style or that have some fea
ture about them that blocks their sale.
One's first impulse Is to reject such a
model, but experience has taught one
canny shopper that models of this
type are possible after they have been
revised a borne or by a reliable tailor
An unbecoming neck-line, a sleeve
that is the wrong length or does not
fit well, even the Introduction of a
conspicuous color in some way may
be altered with gratifying results.
Eliminating objectionable details, a
dress with a very fell circular skirt
proved to be rather a drug on the
market at one shop, principally because
brilliant green cloth with steel but
tons had been Inserted at the aides,
so that in the swing of the skirt a
not too generous display of hosiery
would result. The cut -of the skirt
was extreme, enough to give pause,
but plus the spectacular touch of
green it was voted Impossible by the
women to whom it was offered, until
along came a woman with a vision
that could see black satin substituted
for thegreen, and the severe renais
sance neckline could be softened by
opening the front of the plain bodice
and Inserting a V of some flattering
lingerie material changes, which,
while very slight, altered, the entire
spirit of the gown.
Now that sleeves of contrasting ma
terial are voted smart, one might be
tempted to select a gown which could
be- altered by changing the sleeves.
Of course, any changes one's original
ity might suggest would be helpful
to the woman who to her dismay finds
that the model she selected has been
selected by her nearest neighbor or
her dearest enemy.
Canton crepe continues- to be
season's most fashionable fabric
Black and navy, with an occasional
gray gown, make the sum total of most
smart daytime gatherings.
Lavender hats worn with dark
dresses are very smart.
Felt hats, in white; ray, lavender,
(lame and orange are fruit or flower
trimmed and much worn.
Coat dresses, the front draped over
to the side and hfijd with one button,
are much worn In navy c black cloth
Lace-trimmed hats, wnP cascades of
(ace off the left and sometimes off .both
sides, are worn.
Barocbe pearls worn on a silken
cord are the latest fancy.

Pretty lace caps far. babies are eas
ily made by using white lace aHover
and. drawing In the fullness at the
back with ribbon run through a tiny
hem. The edges of the bonnet are
trimmed with lace ruffles and the long
strings are made of fine insertion about
three inches wide. Some pretty caps
.are made from scraps of lace and em

times with three or four different kinds

Is good. A cape Is a handy garment

. To Soften Skins.
There are two sissple ways of soft
enlng leather and raw skins. One is
to rub In thorouj-blr neat's-foot oIL
The other is to dissolve three ounces
of alum, seven ounces of salt and one
and one-half ounces saleratus In suffi
cient hot rain, water to saturate the
skin. When cool enough not to scald
the bands soak the akin In- it for 12
hours; wring out and hang up to dry,
When dry repeat this operation two or
three times until the skin is -sufficient.
White Evening Dress.
The vogpe of the all-white evening
dress seems to have come Into Its own
with the late spring. Many beautiful
all white gowns are to be seen at every
evening function of any Importance
along the north and south shores.
Combinations, of kltten's-ear crepe and
soft laces, canton -crepe and chiffon,
white chantniy and net, make the
most attractive of the all-white effects.
Black wraps of elaborate design gen
erally are worn with the white dresses.
Linen frocks are often trimmed with
scallops bound in a contrasting shade.
These scallops are seen around the
hem of the skirt, the sleeves and the
neck line. This makes a very Inex
