I understand ttmt white will be prac

White dresses are made up in serges
trimmed with deep cream tinted lace, and
softer white stuffs are prettily em
broidered in colors or ins t with motifs in
lace. Chiffon galloons in black and white
or all lace galloons outline patterns upon
the bodices and skirts. White voile is one
of the favored stuffs for r;ftcrno-on frocks,
while tlbet cloth, melton, broadcloth and
cheviot, to the exclusion of other fabrics,
are used for the new tailored dresses.
Etamine, because of its uncrushable qual
ities, is increasing in popularity and is
made up into dresses for the smartest
Two materials are now combined in
making' one costume in a manner that
is both novel and fetching. The fab
rics are similar either in quality or In
color, and the combination is effected
under an application of trimming so that
the connecting line cannot be detected.
For instance, an old roso frock will ba
trimmed with a flounce of white and
rose colored brocade, the band of lace
trimming the head of -the flounce hiding
the meeting place.
A costume cf smooth faced white cloth
was one of the most charming types of
the combination gown. In iis case the
contrasting material was moss green bro
cade, forming a short coat, which was
handsomely trimmed with guipure. The
latter made the very Ceep collar, the cein
ture and the stiff, flaring cuffs above the
frills of accordion plaited chiffon that
shaded the arms. A very full draping
of plaited chiffon fashioned the blouse
and the soft, high collar. Choux and
scarf end* of chiffon adorned the front
of the coat at the termination of-J.he col
lar. The skirt was underlaid by a lin-
ing of moss green taffeta that shim
mered through the cut out designs adorn
ing the loper part of the skirt and deco
rating the portion just beneath the coat.
Bands of moss green baby ribbon bor
dered the skirt, and the sleeve flounce;?.
Handsome bags of suede and silver
are considered a necessary part of th ?
shopping toilet. If you cannot afford
sliver, buy a stiver and suede bag. If
that combination is beyond your means,
leather bags mounted on silver plate are
to be had. The wearer's Initial should
'oe chased upon the silver top. Inside the
bag a pocketbook and handkerchief are
stowed, and it is then suspended from
the side by short ornamental chain.
Pearls are growing in popularity. "Pearl
chains, pearl dog collars and pearl era
broideries are efftjiiver in combination
with any type o? costume. Pearl pins,
pearl rings and pearl caboehons are dis
played by the fashionable woman. The
reason of this sudden vogue is explained
by the demand fur them for the English
coronation, Queen Alexandra's well
known partiality for pearls being the
primary incentive to their purchase.

The mobt recent hats from the smart
millinery shops have very heavily trim
med sheaves of wheat spreading over the
back or masses of laces and flowers trail
ing over the hair. The hats lcok a trifle
heavy and ungainly, but since they are
stylish, what matters It. An entire lace
hat trimmed with a collection of wheat
straw resembled the headdress of a har
vest maid. In spite of the most careful
adjustment of the bits of straw, a strand
would every now and then trail ticklishly
near the wearer's ear, where it was a
source of considerable annoyance.
The typicai suburban hat—the one to be
worn for di-midrcss or afternoon func

AVOID THE "BOBBIE' 1 WALK.
One of the most common faults in
woman's walk is undue tension of stif
fening of the ankle muscles, producing
a straight up-and-down motion of the
feet, and the consequent "bobby," cramp
ed walk—the stiff-ankle gait.
An exercise for strengthening the an
kle joints is somewhat similar to the
last described movement, except that it
is taken in a reclining position, which

is easier work, as the body does not
have to be supported.
Lie- flat on the back, with the right
l<\g resting on the left knee. Extend al
ternately the right and the left fcot,
pointing the toe downward as far as
possible. Be careful to do each the same
number of times, that the muscles of
both feet may be strengthened equally.
Circle, the toe from right to left and
from lett to right. Tf inclined to toe in.
then circle only outward. These move
ments may be energized, that is, all the
force that cm be commanded must be
put into them, tf the best results are
desired. The instep is also strengthened
by the exercise.
A word to the wise woman who r-fts a
superabundance of flesh upon her limbs —
these movements will go a long way to-
ward reducing avoirdupois and make
symmetrical, tapering- limbs.
Having learend how to toe the mark,
to stand properly, to strengthen weak an
kles and tone up flabby calves, Diana. ad
vances a step higher, and learns to walk.
• •The first position— foot behind the
other and all the weight on the front
and right foot; then the other foot is
raised •so - that the toe>tetotie reaches the
ground. This is not done:.with the mus
cles of the foot, but twith those! of the

is brought forward '■hanging perfectly
limp. In the third movement,, the^knee
is straightened" and the foot falls .nto
place. The foot must not|be set down,
it must fall by the action of the knees
in straightening.;. Thus, by slow degrees,
is the novice initiated in the mysteiies
of walking. *& '•■ 4s*.

must be shaded from the direct rays of

A famous grower says that orchids
are not difficult to raise if common sense
is followed In caring for them. Grown
from bulbs, all varieties need plenty of
fresh air. In a greenhouse the ventilators
must be kept constantly open in warm
weather. While they require a great deal
of light the plants must not be exposed
to direct sun rays, a shaded glass or a
paper canopy being always adjusted over
them. The bulbs must be kept a foot and
a half to "four feet away from the glass
of the window or hothouse. When wa
tered, plants should be thoroughly mois
tened, but they should be allowed to dry
before watering again. After the plant
has reached Its full growth less water
should be administered, but a good deal
must be supplied when the buds begin to
Once the flowering season is over, the
plant is -repotted if necessary, if th
vessel in which it is growing is large
enough, only a layer of moss need be
added. Tn,e.roots must never be disturb
ed. It is Letter to break the receptacle
than run the risk of spoiling' the plant. A
mixture of fibrous peat, sphagnum moss,
charcoal arfd potsherd makes the best
potting material. —Eleanor Hewitt.
