See Tli nt the Collar Fill.
"Whenever I buy a new suit," said
the woman who bad a new suit for
every season, "my husband always
looks at the collar, and if that suits
him he says It's an excellent fit. When
I announce that I'm going on a shop
ping trip he always admonishes me to
get a good fitting collar. It's true of
most men who observe women's clothes
at all that the set of the collar deter
mines whether they think a woman is
well dressed or not. I suppose it's bo
cause the plainness of masculine attire
makes a snug, well shaped collar un
absolute necessity to a well groomed
appearance. And I believe men are
right about insisting on this feature
In a woman's suit and tluu women
would do well to pay less attention to
the fit over the hip and bust and pay
more attention to the lit of the collar.
A bulging collar can make the entire
NUitlook ugly, while a somewhat care
less tit In other Hues may be forgiven
If the collar only looks trim." New
' One of the cleverest housewives la
ouo whose cleverness lies not so much
in the way she does the work though
that merits a big -word of praise as In
the way she dresses. All her working
dresses are made with skirts that Just
escape, with sleeves that end In but
toned cuffs (so that she can roll them
up well out of the way), with collars
already adjusted or stocks that go on

man learns that it's about as easy to
look neat as to be untidy there'll be a
revolution that Is worth while. White
Is the daintiest thing to wear, but while

IT. MaeKastllne, imslslant director of
physical culture at Teachers' college,
New York, stirred a responsive chord
In the hearts of the members of the

Keep Children IIiikj-.
There are several rules that should
be observed for the health and beauty
of any child. The llrst Is to give It
Hoinothlng to do. No child can piny nil
day. There should be some kind of
regular task. This will make the child
beautiful as well as healthy. It wilt
cultivate its mind and Its body. A
healthy child should also have some
thing to occupy Its mind. It can, In
Japanese fashion, paste pictures on the
wall or play with handsome embroid
eries or train the eye by doing a little
light carving and painting. These are
matters for the Individual to decide.
But a child should keep itself occupied
if it Is going to be healthy and hand
some. The Iiabjr'i Drear.
Instead of attaching the baby dress
to the dainty yoke of embroidery or
lace, make the dress with a yoke of
plain material, then over it, and attach
only at the neckband, set the fancy
yoke, finished at the edges with lace or
embroidery. The plain yoke takes the
place of a cover for the underwalst,
which has a distressing way of show
ing through a transparent yoke. The
fancy yoke Is relieved of all strain,
wears longer and is easier to launder,
as It can be laid back and ironed fiat
on the wrong side.
An Idea Iu Shade.
Really handsome lamp and candle
shades may be made of Japanese rice
paper. Usually the straw colored Is
used for the foundation, and over this
Is laid a cut-out pattern of, say, red,
and on top of that lu some portions a
blue or u red, the idea being to obtain
a mosaic effect. The entire pattern is
then outlined with black India Ink.
The frames are either made to order
or they may be bought for a small sum
at any of the shops where oriental
goods are sold.
Almond milk is made by blanching
thirty good sized Jordan almonds aud
bruising them to a powder lu half a
pint of distilled -water. A lump of
sugar must be worked la at the same
time to prevent the oil from separating.
The process takes some time and
should be done iu a mortar. Strain
through cheesecloth. To make the milk
richer increase the number of nuts
used. The preparation is one of the
most soothing and blenching.
Perhaps no surer index of breeding
exists than is displayed in the knowl
edge of just what degree of, effort is
proper in entertaining. If a hostess'
chief concern is to show off her pos
sessions, to give herself a good time or
to save all possible effort she does ill
to call her intent hospitality. The true
essence of hospitality is distilled of the
kindly, unselfish wisii to give pleasure
and a tactful understanding of the fit
ness of things.
