They Are Caef al for Varloaa Parpoaea
There are few things that conduce
more to an orderly management of the
house than a full supply of household
bags. These bags, when used for utili
tarian purposes, like holding dust
cloths, soiled clothes or any similar
purpose, should be made of washable
material. The value of a set of bag
for soiled clothes over a hamper of
willow-ware will be a subject of dis
pute. A hamper is. more convenient,
but the bags are cheaper, and by using
several the fine clothes may be kept
separate from the bedding and coarser
clothes. In any event it is convenient
to have a small laundry bag to hold
cufls and collars separate from the
One of the most useful of all house
hold bags is a clothespin bag. It is ;
more convenient to use than a basket j

BEWITCHING TEA GOWNS
Filmy, Gracefal Creation That Art
The man who said that "grace is tht
beauty of form under the influence of
freedom"' may have been inspired by
the eight of a handsome woman in a
handsome neglige gown. One thing is
certain, and that is that no variety of
dress is more graceful than the Iong
flowirg, semiloose tea gown. Every
woman who can afford to do so shoul l
indulge in the luxury of at least one
elaborate garment of this kind. Thos?
who can alTord several are the envy of
their friends. The tea gown really has
a niueh-to-be-di'sirrd influence on the
wearer. It makes the poor feel rich
and the rich richer and gives one a
sense of ease, freedom and luxury that
no other frock, however fine, imparts.
If a woman has the figure which suits
this gown, she is more attractive in
this style of dress than any other. This
perhaps explains the fondness of wom
en srenerallv for it. to sav nothing of

ACTUALLY FORGOT HIS WIFE.
thlenco Lawyer Who Una it Good

Did von ever know any man so ab
sent-minded ns to forget he had a wife
while walking in the street with her?
Judge Thomas, of Dearborn street, a
brother of Congressman Thomas, of
Michigan, tells a good story on himself
which aptly illustrates this curious '
phase of psychological phenomena.
"We were living on the South side at
the time," he said, "and one night, in
company with Mrs. Thomas. I went tc
hear a lecture in Central Music hall. I
do not recall the name of the lecturer,
but that cuts no ice in this story. As
we were coming out of the hall at the
close, I happened to think of a letter in
my pocket which I ha-d forgotten to
mail or post, as John Pull would say.
"We walked as far south as the Pal
iner house, and I left Mrs. Thomas
standing for a few moments at Monroe
street while I hastened in to post my
letter. We were intending to take a
south-bound car together as soon as I j
came out. but for some reason what
was it? my errand caused me to for- j
get all about my wife. Did some other j
spirit possess my body while I was tak- j
ing an astral flight? At any rate. 11

my waiting wife, and hastened away to j

myself, but for the life of me I couldn't

I had gone as far as Van Buren street
before it suddenly flashed into my
mind. "why. your wife, of course!' I
hurried back, you may be sure, but I
don't pretend to remember what my
wife had to say about the matter."
Capon and Wrapa.
The new capes and wraps are exceed
ingly eccentric in appearance. They
are all made to look very long and nar
row about the shoulders, showing that
small sleeves are to stay in fashion for
quite awhile. Many of the capes are
made of peau de scie, some are of satiu,
but those that are seen at present are
of taffeta silk in all the queer, old
fashioued shade. There is a shade of
preen, for instance, trimmed with nar- !
row black velvet ribbon. The capes fit
close over the shoulders, but broaden
out around the waist. Sometimes they I
are made with a double cape, but most j
have but cue, and the trimming eon- I

The collar is very high and flaring, and

p!ifiie put on garland fa-hinn. The j
material is pale blue liberty silk, and
opens over a full front and skirt of j
filmy yellowish lace falling fnmi a but-
terfly bow at the corsage. The same j
style carrl"d out in turquoise blue ein- ;
broidered in silver paillettes and tur- .
quoise is exquisite, but no more so j
than roe pink or apricot wrought in

Silk muslin, made over soft, un
stilTened satin, is one of the best ma
terials for tea gowns at the present
moment, and the mode of making in
everv ca-- seems to be inexplicable.
In the hand the robe apparently has no
shape at all. but when on. what with
soft sashes, crush belts, jeweled gir
dles, and no end of ribbon bows, it
clings to the figure here and therein
the mot graceful fashion. The more
diaphanous and indescribable such
gowns are the more fashionable. For
a tall, graceful woman nothing could
be more excellent than a tea gown lika
the one shown, of orient satin, in the
ivory tint so becoming alike to dark
and fair. A handsome girdle of gilt
filigree, studded with semiprecious
stones, encircles the waist, falling al
most to the bottom of the skirt in
front. Long sleeves and a neglige
jacket of soft point d'esprit net ap
plique in a scroll design, with lace and
a fichu of chiffon, complete this ar
tistic creation. Many of the imported
tea gowns are made of accordion-plaited
chiffon falling from a yoke of fine
lace. and. were it not for the expense
of the materials, would look for all the
world like the old-time Mother Hub
bard wrapper, which every woman
with an exquisite sense of neatness de
tested in her innermost heart.
Plain and dotted net. foulards, plain
and fancy silks, and brocaded and plain
satin are all made into negiige gowns,
as well a- all gauzy materials. Many
of the swellest tea gowns are cut low
and have elbow sleeves made of piece
lace: then a lace scurf H thrown about
the reck with studied carlessness. and
its long ends are allowed to fall down
