The model of this attractive cloak
which is three-quarter length, is
made or white cheviot and hangs
loosely frcm the shoulders, lt is
belted halt way at the waist.
Raccoon fur at the neck, sleeves and
bottom of the cloak enhances its
beauty. The cloak may be worn
with almost any costume, though in
combination with a white suit or
dress it is unsurpassed in style.
DRAPERIES FOR THE DOORS
Proper Materials Must Be Employed

sj -. . 2?? .^?0?*?*~
Scrim and other sheer materials
?re not appropriate for door hangings,
and rather than use them it would be
better to Keep door3 plain. For a
medium-weight portiere, one that will
break the severe line of the wood
work, but not seem to fill a room, raw
silk and pongee are charming mate
rials. If you are obliged to get single
width, two strips fagoted together with
silk of the same color are effective.
The portieres will look best if they
are a shade or so darker than the gen
eral tone of the room. For a recessed
window curtains a trifle darker than
the walls are best, and a valance
should go next to the window, not on
the edge of the alcove? " - .

If the material does not offer suffi
cient protection at night, it would be
well to have a roller shade fitted to
the glass door, matching those at the
other windows, and the curtain rod
must then be fastened with extension
brackets, so as to come out beyond
and cover the shade when it is rolled
up in the daytime.
EMPLOY CARE IN SELECTING
Stout Woman Must Keep in Mind the
< Fact That All Styles Are Not
. i for Her.
The stout woman who has pride is
ever on the alert for a style of dress
that will oe especially becoming to
her. One afternoon gown that sug
gests length of line is made of white
crepe de chine. It is made m two sec
tions, the upper one giving a coat ef
fect and extending down to within
eight inches of the bottom of the
under section. The coat section is
made with two plaits down either side
of the front and the back. The spaces
between the box plaits are filled in
with small tucks which, like the box
plaits, extend from the shoulder line
to the bottom of the upper section of
the dress. Through slots made be
neath the box plaits a narrow green
velvet belt is passed anu allowed to
The sleeves are long and pointed
et the wrist, a feature that every stout
-woman should demand in having her
gowns made. Flowing cuffs or circu
lar trimmings should not be seen on
sleeves intended to cover stout arms.
Lavalli?res Are Still Fashionable.
Lavalli?res are still modish, but it
is considered smarter to wear a nar
row band of velvet with a jewel pend
ant in the front. Chains of braided
pearls make a sort ot modified dog
collar which will take the fancy of
the woman with the swanlike neck.
For the extremist there are neck
laces which follow the base of the
throat across tho front and hang
down the Dack, reversing the old or
der o? rh.ngs. Those, by the wey, are
intended to accompany the drest with
a high front and decollete back.
STYLES ARE VARIED
REALLY NOTHING DEFINITE HAS
BEEN ARRIVED AT.
Skirt of Last Autumn, However, May
Be Said to Be Definitely Shelved
-Cuirass Bodice Will Be a
Boon for Many.
There is no settlement of the fash
ion question yet. Happily, the vari
ous styles which were brought over
for our selection are swinging from
one silhouette to another like a pen
dulum. There is reason to be happy
about lt, because it spells a certain
degree of safety for the woman who
knows what she wants and can find
it in the- heterogeneous assortment
that is offered.
Some of the best American design
ers are insisting on the moderately
narrow skirt, but the skirt of last
autumn is definitely done for and must
be shelved. The wide tunic over the
skimpy underskirt belongs to a day
that is done. The coats of last au
tumn are not as hopeless as the skirts
and oodices, but possibly it is easier
to get a new suit than alter an old
However, no one can lay a finger
on any one fashion and say it is the
ruling one. There seems still to be
uncertainty as regards the best fash

The cuirass bodice is one of the
revived fashions that women greet
with approval. It saves one the need
of worry about the waist line. No mat
ter what the new corsets are unable
to do to flesh that has hardened into
stubbornness, the medieval bodice,
made ol any clotn, hides a thick line
and leaves the onlooker ignorant ot
the size of the waist beneath.

Jenny for these oodices and she uses
them over voluminous skirts ot tulle
or lace. Sometimes the lace is of
metal over a taffeta foundation, and
the bodice is of neavily brocaded satin
or velvet. Blue predominates as a
color. Black is rarely used in this
kind or a frock, although Premet has
sent over a model with a white tulle
skirt embroidered in rhinestones that
has a bodice of black plush. This has
straight lines at the side and the
medieval decolletage, but it does not

MATTER WELL TO REMEMBER
?Vomen Having Eyebrows Removed
Should Recollect That Fashions
Are Liable to Change.
Have you ever consoled yourself,

graying hair and waning color would

You prided yourself on your heav?
eyebrows, didn't you? You though;
that they would still give color and
character to your face when the pink
of your cheek was faded and the hail
above it was white.
Eyebrows are no longer fashionable.
No. Some fashionable women have
even gone so far as to have their eye
brows taken out, part of them at least,
so that only a thin, Japanese line is
left, and this is darkened and accen
tuated with a pencil.
All very well-unless you remember
that fashions, it fashions there are in

DETAIL GAVE GARMENT CHARfo
Delicate Finishing Touches Made All
the Difference in Looks of
One thing, and it is of vast import
ance, the insistent simpler dressing
has brought to the surface, and that
is the value of fine, delicate finishing
touches, writes Mrs. Jack May. The
other day 1 picked up a slightly soiled
gray Georgette blouse at one of the
exclusive houses, and wondered for
the space of a second or so why it
was so attractive. For the style was
simplicity itself, the front and back
united on the shoulders beneath an
applied band, the fullness of the latter
laid in a series of small hoxplaits, and
the fronts just sllgutly gathered and
faced back with broad, loose pieces
of gray faille. There were deep cuffs
and a high up-and-down collar of the
faille, cut away in front, and support
ed by a narrow cravat of black moire
ribbon. It all, I admit, sounds nothing
in the telling, whereas the charm of
the model was self-evident on closer
examination; it was the fine touch im
parted to every detail, the delicate
workmanship it never pays any but
the best modistes to put into things,
as, for example, the tiny piping with
which the narrow shoulder band ot
Georgette was set. on, and the group
ot similar pipings, that finished both
the collar and cults. These were not
aone in a moment* nor by tyro fingers
either. . ,
