THE WASHINGTON TIHBS, TUESDAY, HAT 2G, 1912.
FOR TIMES WOMEN
What Is Seen
Large bags ami purses to match dif
ferent gowns are very popular and are
made of all materials and In all shapes
' and sizes. The bags of Dresden pat
terns, In tapestry, and' other heavy ma-
terlals that were so appropriate for
winter suits are being laid aside for
bags of white' or cream, embroidered In
two tones or covered with beads. White
bead bags with either a cord or a chain,
and lined with silk moire, which I saw
at a leather store on F street, near
, Thirteenth street, were worked In a
design with transparent beads. An Inch
wide fringe of transparent beads, hung
. at the bottom of the bag. According to
the size they were 3.60, ft, J5, and $5.
A woman's furnishing store In F
street, advertised a few day's ago a sale
of women's .waists of white lawnjU85
cents. I looked at some of them todiy
and found them to be of excellent qual
ity, made In tailored .style, with soft
.cuffs, and In high neck nd long sleeves,
opened In the back.
At the same store were some new de
Btgns In traveling dressing cases. Noth
t, lng Is more Inconvenient than a large
and bulky dressing case, which cannot
be carried in a small bag. There are
several varieties of late patterns In these
cases, but In the main, they are large
and flat, and take up a great deal of
space. Besides being Inconvenient, the
amount of leather it takes to cover
then makes them expensive. A small
dressing case about one Inch thick, 4
inches wide and ten Inches long was
rnaYle of the finest American seal leath
er, fitted with Parisian Ivory, and was
i'GFeat Interest Displayed in
Event Which Opens in
From the great amount of Interest dis
played, the first annual rose exhibition
,of the Brookland Citizens' Association,
to be held In the Masonic Temple, In
, Brookland tonight and tomorrow night,
should prove a success.
Tho entire citizenship of Brookland is
giving its support to the show and
splendid results are expected. One ob
ject of the exhibition from which
I Brookland expects to reap benefits is
I the creating of a spirit of rivalry among
the housewives to see who can' have the
utsi iiower gardens.
It is planned to make the rose exhibi
tion a permanent affair, holding one
ench-year ana Increasing Its scope and
Trlnfluence. as time progresses.
, The committee In charge Is composed
of C. F. T&nslll. chairman; D. H. Oert
ijf. vjee chairman; C. L. Mendel. Frank
lin T. Howe, secretary; A. A. Carpen

gentlemen Is- a ladles' auxiliary com
mittee, composed of Mrs. M. B. Down

First Piano Shown
145 Years Ago Today
The first public performance on a piano
took place in London 145 years ago to
day. The Instrument was one manu
factured In England by Johannes
Zumpe, a German, who established the
(first piano factory there. Crude pianos
had been made earlier In the century,
but had not attracted serious atten
tion. The original Invention Is variously
attributed to Cristofalll, an Italian; J.
C. Schroter, a German, and Marlus, a
Frenchmen. Upright pianos were first
made early In the nineteenth century,
the plans having been suggested by
Iaaac Hawkins, in 1800.

The beaches at Atlantlo City and
nearer summer resorts .are beginning to
be dotted with little tots digging sand
plies and making ."wells. The ener
getic youngster needs oh an average
of half a dozen clean dresses a day, and
beach rompers solve the difficulty with
very little expense. An Eleventh street
department store Is showing these
rompers, at one of the counters In the
children's section, for 75 cents and Jl
a pair. They come In very large sizes,
which shows that they will be popular
not only with the younger children, but
with big girls and boys. They are made
Of madras In practical shades of pink,
brown, blue, and stripes. They are the
most comfortable, , cool, and sensible
garment for a child In summer.
Speaking of beaches summer reading
Is a necessity more than a luxury, but
the kind of books generally desired by
the reader on a vacation are too ex
pensive to permit him td purchase very
many. When, however, they may be
had In good binding and excellent print
for the small sum of 50 cents, no one
should hesitate to lay In a supply of
summer literature. In the same store
where I saw the rompers, books by
Stewart Edward White, WIlllanT De
Morgan, and other late authors were
for sale at this price.
