beading the pattern of lace and spang
ling embroidery! For what? To put
on the front of a gown. For what? To
please some "mere man," of course.
(Dear, unselfish woman.)
Speaking of beading, inasmuch as
everything has been done on the
shirtwaist that the ingenuity of wo
man could devise, they have turned
to the Indian and borrowed his
beads wherewith to bead, actually
bead the yoke of their washable
voile or canvas shirtwaists, or over
blouse of chiffon; just plain little
white china beads, following a
stamped design around the Dutch
neck. But for color, they must turn
to Bulgarian embroidery and one
sees most interesting motifs wrought
In the primitive colors set off with
an outline of black, all in heavy
wash silks. "They come high" in
the shops, but the embroidery coun
ters all carry them ready to work.
Color? Again the fickle public is
veering off on another track, and
this time it is coronation yellow, a
royal color, combined with sapphire
blue. One sees it even in the "head
ache bands" as the cynics call the

maid's train; hers was only a little
fish tail drapery hanging loose from
her waist, but she was satisfied to
know it was imported by a Fifth
avenue house. Those imported
gowns have a very freakish air, pro
duced by building the two sides of
the waist differently. It is evident
ly done in the thought that few peo
ple can copy it, but any woman
handy with a needle with an up-to-date
pattern can do wonders in this
In the first illustration Is present
ed a costume sure to please because
of its becoming lines and varied
making possibilities. The waist was
body and sleeve in one model. The
skirt had five gores lengthened by
a gathered flounce, which had a
straight lower edge. The develop-
ment of this costume was of white
batiste trimmed with allover lace and
insertion. This could be also fash
ioned of bordered materials, linens
or lightweight woolens.
One of the most satisfying things
about present day fashions, shown in
the second Illustration, is to know
they are not too complicated for am
ateur development. Pale pink chif
fon was used. The sleeves were sew
ed in the regulation manner, but
the peasant blouse style is simulated
with use of the yoke extending down
the sleeves. The skirt was seven
gored, tucked section lengthened by
a straight flounce. Fine lawns, ba
tiste, handkerchief linen, voile or
soft silks would be quite suitable
for this design.

the very garniture in irredescent
passementerie laid carefully away
seven years ago to await this very
hour. Every wise girl has a seven
year chest in which she neatly lays
away scraps of beautiful brocade,
embroidery, lace, gold braid, velvet,
ribbons, buckles, etc. Everything
will come Into vogue In seven years.
Speaking of buckles, a satin evening
gown of a beautiful shade of helio
trope had the bias drapery caught
once below the hip and on the other
side Just below the knee (to give
fullness) and the folds were artis
tically gathered into the most fasci
nating buckles, big oval huckle
forms covered with scraps of bro
cade for all the world like our
Freoch furniture. The lace yoke
and undersleeve3 of this gown were
also heliotrope of the same shade,
and had been d3ed at home with a
little oil paint, such as comes in an
artist's tube, made .very thin with
gasoline and it may be useful to
know that any desired shade may be

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there Is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Curt is
the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh be
ing a constitutional disease, requires
a constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca
tarrh cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system, thereby de
stroying the foundation of the disease,
and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and assist
ing nature in doing its work. The
proprietors have so much faith In Its
curative powers that they offer one
hundred dollars for any case that It
fails to cure. Send for list of testimon
