argues that it is clearly wthin the powa
of Congress to graut permission to ;

The first thin;: needed is a wide rammed

a woman's bee hat.
For the veil, take a strip of mosquito
bar wide enough to reach, from the base
of the crown on the outside of the hat
to the arm pits, and long enough to lit
Li osely around the shoulders; with the
exception of about twelve inches, which
is of the finest black bobinet lace. Join
the ends. Turn in one edge and gather i >a
to the has.> of the crown. Face theothi .
edge with a strip of cotton cloth, fitting
the shoulders tightly; At the hack of
the ann/attach a strap which passes un?
der the arm and buttons on to the band
in front. H necessary, run into the band
a cord to tighten, as the occasion may
require. The black bobinet is less try?
ing to tin* oyes than anything else, and is
almost no obstruction to the sight. If
properly made there is no falling in on
the neck and no rubbing of the nose and
chin, yet perfect freedom of movement
to the head._
