"The Times'" Fashion Hints.
An evening dress pronounced one of the
daintiest, is made like the picture.
It is of plain old rose silk, with garniture
of velvet, chiffon, and lace. The velvet is
laid on in narrow folds round tho square
neck, and has rosettes on each side in front.
A belt with bows of the velvet ribbon. Tho
largo silk sleeves, caught with tho rosettes,
have a fall of delicate lace at the elbows,
pretty epaulettes of the lace being also on tho
shoulders, aud a full deep ruffle of old roso
chmon aud velvet rosettes are on tho skirt,
which is made full in tho back and just es
capes the floor all round.
Tho coiffure is dressed alter tho prevailing
stylo, and is also garnished with a bow of the
Buy New Style Shoes.
No woman is going to buy an old style shoe
If she wants to feel that she is as woll dressed as
other women. The fashionable boot and shoe
isnow made on a pointed last, with astraight
tip. Common sense and round too lasts aro
out of date, and so are tho diamond tins. It
doesn't cost much more to bo in than to bo out
of fashion. Tho now style shoes are not un
comfortable; because of tho narrowness of
the toes, all shoes aro worn at least ono
size larger than usual.
How to Squeeze a Lemon.
Thero aro lemon squeezers aud lomon
squeezers, but I wouldn't use one of them.
The acid on metal makes the juice tasto me
tallic, and the wooden ones are apt to leave a
bad taste. Besides that, if.you uso a lemon
"Then I shall have my revenge."
"How?" and she laughed merrily.
'By marrying the first girl I see dressed in
"Georgo, what a silly you are."
"I suppose so. Ten yards, you said, of tho
mauve? All right. There's the carriage. I
must bo off." And, Hinging the rest cf his
cigar into tho grate, ho brushed his lips
across his sister's cheek, seized his hat, stick
and gloves and was gone.
His sister listened to the roll of tho carriage
wheols an instant, thinking: "I might have
ordered the bluo and rosebuds; he has such
good taste." Then turning away, quite for
got the episode.
An fctur or two later, Goorgo's business
compl -led, ho bethought him of his sister's
commission, and crcgfag the street entered
the drygoods palac .SXooper, Hale & Co.
"What will you have, Mr. Vincent?" said
ono of the lloor-walkers, bowing obsequiously
as George entered.
'Tho silk counter," George answored
"Certainly, sir. Third counter to your left.
Hero, boy, show this gentleman to tho silk
In a moment Georgo stood before a counter
overhung and draped with tho latest novelties
in silk, while half a dozen shopgirls smilingly
asked what ho wished.
Mfj nl w?
squeezer you are sure to got a lot of tho es
sential oil out of the rind of the lemon, and
that is rank poison to the stomach. Tho best
way to get tho juice from a lomon is to roll it
till it is soft, then cut off the end and insert a
silver knife and scrape tho pulp out into the
dish. That way you got all tho good of the
lemon and none of tho bad. Boll them under
your hand on a hard table, or put tho lomon
down on tho floor and roll it lightly under
your foot. Then wipe it off bofore squeezing.
Never leave the soeds of a lomoa in tho pulp
that you tako out. Tho seeds will make" tho
juice very bitter, and in half an hour after
taken from the lemon.
SMALL GIRLS' COATS.
They, Are Most Graceful When They Are
On chilly days when autumn rains are cold
as well as wet, tho school girl needs a long
coat. Besides a long cloak is more becoming
to a girl in short drosses than ono of tho
three-quarter garments, which give her such
a choppod-off appearance.
A pretty garment for a young miss of eleven
or twelve is made of a brown roujjh goods,
buttoned double-breasted withrovors ofwhito
cloth turning back over a round plaited capo.
The sleeves aro full and have wide still cuffs.
Another wrap suitable for a girl of seven
or eight is made of brown beaver cloth.
Thero aro two wido box plaits in front where
tho coat fastens. A long capo reaching to the
waist is plaited into n brown velvet collar
which is cut in points all around. Tho little
girl who wore this wrap had a round turban,
trimmed in tho back with standing loops of
Very small girls look best in a coat of tho
empress stylo and it is usually made of some
lisrht colored bengaline. Ono pretty ouo was
made of whito cloth, gathered into a pointed
yoke of brown velvet and trimmed with chin
For a Sweet Breath.
Don't expect to have clean teeth or a sweet
breath while thoro is a tinge of white on the
tonguo. It is an unmistakable ovidence of in
digestion. Drink sour lomonado, eat ripe
fruit and green vogetubles for purgatives; ex
ercise freely; uso plenty of water internally
and externally, and keep up the treatment
until the mouth is clean, healthy and red.
Various things are suggested "to counteract
an unpleasant breath resulting from a bad
tooth, wine, or gurlic-sconted dishes. Cinna
mon, mint creams, orris root, cloves, mastic
rosin, and spruco gum will disguise some
odors. Ten drops of tincture of myrrh in a
glass of water will sweeten and refresh the
mouth; a teaspoonful of spirits of camphor or
peppermint in thG samo yarg.e is among the
best antiseptics, nud a few drops of myrrh
and camphor in tho water aro recommended
in case of cold, throat trouble, or any slight
indisposition which may affect the breath.
Tho aesthetic matron of to-day encircles the
waist of her flowing house gown of Japanese
crope in apple blossom, chrysanthemum or
porcelain-blue hue. with a girdle of jet beads
and cabochous strung on elastic. Tho strands
are hela together with jot slides, and ornate
clasps hold tho front. For matronly wear
ther-i are ribbon trimmings of moire, with jet
ornaments placed along the center and jotted
point d'esprit quillings at tho edges. The
neck bows of ilnely plaited chiffon in quiet
tints and fancy colors aro quite the vogue
when caught into place with big jet pins or
buckles. The black and whito combination,
still in favor, is carried even into evening cos
tumes. A prodigal use of ostrich feathers
will characterize the fall millinery.
"Yes," Said the O Id Jeweler.
"Very few women know how to put on
their brooches and lace-pins. Let me see
how you would do it." So Aminta took it up
by the setting, to oblige him, aud proceeded
to work it iuto tho bit of velvet at hor throat
"Yes, I thought so," he continued. "That's
just the reason it will break soon again, and
you will be bringing it back for repairs. It
may be against my business, but 1 11 tell you
how it should bo done. Tako hold of the
brooch by the pin. Don't make a leverage
by using tho jeweled part as a handle. Take
it up by the pin und put it in by the pin,
handling the ornamont only when you clasp
it, so you will save your 'quarters' for renew
ing the pin."
Laundry work reached such a stato in Eng
land that ladies havo now gono into the busi
ness to effect reforms, if possible. Several
model laundries havo been started by "de
cayed gentlewomen." Tho latest is tho Ladies'
Laundry Association of Twickenham, which
claims to bo an ideal laundry. Ono of tho
ladies is in attendance each day. Among
other things tho ladies are very particular us
to the character of tho hands they employ.
Hours and time for rest and meals are pro
vided for very generously. Tho time is from
8 to 8, with a respite forlunch a: 10 a. m., one
hour at 1 o'clock, and tea at 5.
For Bachelor .Maids.
Thero is scarcoly a woman who has not
suffered from an ill-sewn button at some time
or another, either from tho fact that it has
been insecurely lixed or sewn at an unequal
distance from the others. ' A remedy for any
such grievances is tho 'Vanity dress steels.
The "Vanity" is steel for the back of bodico

purpose of quickly and evenly attaching but

great accomplishment, and other advantages
are that puckers are prevented and the figure
Painting with Tapestry Dyes.
Tho manner of painting upon silk or wool
with tapestry dies is to poenco tho design
through a sheet of perforated manilla paper.
The poencing bag is fillod half with powdered
charcoal and half with burned sienna, care
being taken not to uso so much as to slain or
blur the background. As in ail such processes,
delicate manipulation is needful. Next tho
outline must bo traced in local color with a
small brusb boforo painting tho background.
A Bernhardt Dinner Service.
In a dinner service made in Limoges for
Sarah Bernhardt, the designs of tho dishes
were as unique as tho genius of the actress.
He did not reply promptly, for his eyes had
wandored to tho other end of tho counter,
where an elderly lady, with soft, gray hair
drawn against the cheeks was crinkling tho
bluo and rosebud silk in her. gloved fingers
with tho knowing air of an old shopper.
"Tho swivel silks are quite tho latest." he
heard one of the shop girls saying to him as
ho recalled his threat to his sister that morn
ing with an unreasonable feeling of' disap
pointment for he pietured tho old lady
dressed in the youthful bluo and rosebud,
"Then, this is altogether new," the shop
girl continued, "it was only opened yester
day." George recalled himself.
"This is what I am to get," ho said, draw
ing tho sample-book from his pocket "Ten
yards to bo sent to Mis3 Margaret Vincent,
321 Filbert" avenuo."
"Yes, sir," said tho shop girl, scribbling
hastily, "cash hero," and sho drummed on
tho counter with her pencil. "Seventeen
Georgo laid down a bill and in tho interim
of waiting for tho change found himself again
noticing tho elderly lady.
"Margaret would havo aflno joko at myex
penso, if sho saw tho old party who is buying
my sample," he said to himself. "I would as
soon think of putting my grandfather into a
pinafore. Pediculous!" Ho turned away.
Tho handle at tho top of a soup turoen is a
group of throe ducklings with hills pointed to
a common center, while a fourth roaches up
his bill from the base. A vegetable dish is
surmounted by a cock in tho act of crowing,
another is supported by two peacocks with
dragging tails. Then thoro are snails,
dragons, and half impossible creatures of
various shapes and degrees of hoinous ugli
ness. Evidently the divine Sarah has a hor
ror of tho commonplace, always preferring to
it tho grotesque.
SHE SWAM TOR GLOVES.
A Young Woman Docs Her JNIilo and a
Half Without Trouble.
Ono of tho fairest residents of White Bluff
proved herself an admirable long-distance
swimmor lust Tuesday night, and in doing so
won a large box of gloves and one or two
other things that delight tho girl's heart
The young lady a few days ago was com
menting upon her swimming abilities, when
ono of hor companions wagered her that she
could not swim from tho bathhouse in front
of 3Irs. Converse's to the bathhouso in front
of the Habersham residence, a dlstanco of
about a railo and a half. It took about one
sixteenth of a second for the swimmer to ac

Last Tuesday evening was decided upon as
tho tlmo for the swimming test, and all ar
rungoments wore mado for it. A young man
who is an excellent swimmor himself volun
teered to swlm beside tho young lady, and a
boat was also procured to be rowed along at
a safo distance, so that if the party should
give out in their bold undertaking they could
bo lifted into tho boat and taken ashore.
Tho start was made about 8 o'clock on
Tuesday evomng. The news of tho ovent had
spread uraong tho residents of White Bluff,
and there was a good number of friends at
tho starting point The fair swimmer made
a dive into tho water and was off. With a
bteady overhand swimming stroke sho pro
pelled herself with case and grace through
the water, and had soon distanced the young
man who had volunteered to go along and see
that no harm camo to her. Tho event was
soon over. As the dlstanco bet ,voen the young
lady and tho goal lessened she swam the
faster, and when sorao of the watchers thought
tho young lady should havo been about start

To swim this distance and to do it with tho
rapidity with which she accomplished tho

would not attempt the task. By swimming

To Clean Black Dresses.
Horo is a pieparation which is'oxcollent for
cleaning soiled black dresses: Take two parts
of soft water to one part of alcohol, or, if
there bo paint spots on the stuff, spirits of

mixture, and rub a breadth at a timo on both
sides, stretching the material on a table.
Iron on the wrong side, or that which is to bo
inside when tho stuff is mado up. Spongo off
with water, hot. but not scalding, before you
iron. Iron while damp. This proceeding
will make the material appear like new.

lady exclaim. "What a pity, and my daugh

Ho unconsciously stretched his ears. His
heart, too, beat with an intangible lightness.
"It was not for the old party then, aftor all."
"Your change, sir."
It was the third time tho shop girl had aaid
it, and now she raised har voice under tho
impression that Georgo was doaf. "Your
change." Tho elderly lady turned and
looked at George.
"What a pity so young a man is deaf," she
said; though in a low tone.
"Yes. ma'am, it is," replied tho shop girl,
as no ono else seemed addressed.
Georgo smiled. Ho had "heard, but ho
would not resent the charge of deafness, nor
dumbness, nor blindness, under tho circum

that tho'bluo and rosobud silk was for "my

Words of counsel, warning, nnd encourage
ment to members of tho Church of tho Holy
Namo and Catholics in general wore couched
In tho address of Rov. Dr. D. J. Stafford, of
St Patrick's Church, at tho opening of tho
Holy Nnmo Church fair in Carroll Hall last
Dr. Stafford Is regarded as one of tho most
eloquent pulpit orators In tho archdiocese of
Baltimore, and did not fail to sustain his rep
utation last night Ho was introduced by
Fathor Dolanoy, pastor of tho Holy Name
parish, and began his address by saying that
when churches aro erected they sbould"be as
imposing and substantial as tho Christian re
ligion whioh they represent Continuing, he
"In these later years there has sprung up in
Amorica an organization whose avowed pur
pose is opposition to the Catholic Church
and religion. It is doing everything in its
power to hinder tho work and frustrate the
plans of our clergy and lay workers. But the
Catholic Church is rightly not attempting to
counteract tho ovll influences of this har
binger of the disruption of American civiliza
tion by organizations with an opposite pur
pose in tho samo field. The Catholic religion
nnd church is the grandest and best religion
that tho world has over known and will con
tinue to bo so long as tho mombers of its par
ishes remain true to tho fundamental princi
ples of tho organization."
The receipts of the fair, which opened last
night, are to be used in the erection of a par
ish hail in northeast Washington, in which
location thero in not now a Catholic Church
building. The Holy Name parish was only
rocontly orgunized, and the fair is under the
auspices of tho ladies of that church.

WHEN THE HAIR TURNS GRAY.
Hints as to Its Proper Care By One Who
Claims to Know.
Concerning gray hair there seems to be do
rational theory Tor change in the color of tho
hair except that of loss of pigment-color and
presence of gaseous matter in the hair shaft.
This may be the result of natural or artificial
causes. Probably among Americans the early
age at which tho hair blanches is due largely
to nervous conditions. Mental and physical
disturbances undoubtedly often affect tho se
creting apparatus of tho hair, destroying col
oring matter, for history records instances of
tho change of hair from dark to white m a
single night through tho cerebral excitement
of some great loss, bodily or mental anguish;
neither can coloring matter, once entirely de
stroyed, be restored.
Do not believe the quacks who pretend to
restore gray hair to tho youthful color in any
other wnv than by dyeing, for scionco has not
yet discovered a method by which pigment,
onco entirely exhausted, can bo renewed.
Dark hair may be bleached, but no sane per
son could be deceived by the dull, lusterless
yellow of hair so treated, neither dees dye
deceive any one, and a woman who would
look chnrming with a head of white "hair kept
perfectly clean and fluffy with legitimato
treatment, becomes dlrgusting when she re
sorts to such flagrantly artificial means for
keoping the bair dark or blonde.
When one's hair turns grai attention should
bo directed toward keeping it scrupulously
clean, toward keeping the complexion deli
cato and fine with color, tho eyes bright, and
tho expression animated, for a brilliant face,
framed with snowy hair, has a peculiar charm,
if the hair bo abundant nnd becomingly ar
