Stalks and (lowers of tho old-time

artistic woman of to-day. To do it,
she gathers tho (lowers on stalks

stalks an inch In diamotor and press

the flowers inward at the top, forming
a ball and weaving narrow green sat

Tho ends of ribbon are then wound

Velvet Suit Still a Favorite.
The velvet suit promises to be as
much a favorite tills year as last and
its new suppleness renders it extreme
ly desirable for autumn wear. A mod

bolero effect, entering a deep pointed
girdle of satin. A' the center of the
back the seam of the bolero lengthens
over the girdle into a plaited postilion
iha reaches nearly halfway down the
skirt. Light-colored broadcloth em
broidered in French Idiots and sou
tache braid forms the vest and also
the wristband for a turnback cuff.

hats in the riotous wine reds, purpb-s
and mulberry shades are worn with
lawn frocks of last July, and white
canvas shoes peep out from a n w

frocks under long ulsters ol full

dark cloth skirts. Sarlorially tho sea

American woman's reputation as the
best dressed in tho world Is having a
pretty close shave.
That satin is to assume much impor
tance in tho winter frock scheme
seems beyond doubt. Satin models
are many, both in evening and hi vis
iting gowns, and nothing lovelier is
shown than some of tho satin evening
gowns in prlncesso or in Umpire form.
The Empire lines are being accept
ed enthusiastically in coats and in
street or visiting costumes made with
coats, but whether tho Empire gowns
for house and evening wear will find
cordial acceptance remains to be seen.
Some beautiful gowns of the kind have
boon worn in Paris during the past
year, and it is said that several of tho
great dressmakers intend to push the
Empire evening gown this winter, but

Pretty Hats For Children.
No matter what its fate in the fash
ions of grown-ups, the largo hat will
always remain the most artistic for
ihe child's face. There is no lovelier
simple hat than a large white felt with
huge Alsatian bow of wide ribbon di
rectly across the front. Oik; model
i rimmed in this manner has the bow
held ar the center by largo braid rings,
and tho hat is shaded to tho face by a
narrow facing of velvet underneath
the brim. Ribbon streamers both in
velvet and silk are also seen on those
largo hats at the back.
Color Schemes for Little Ones.
Judging from late Parisian coulee
lions for youngsters, the popular col
or schemes this full show that vouth-
fill mixtures of black and while set off
by velvet collar and cuffs in bright
colors, and a peculiar shade of bluish
gray have taken precedence over the
many shades of brown worn last year.
Dark blue, always such a satisfactory
color, has a brilliant rather than n
dead hue in this season's model coats,
lirlght olive green is also a favorite,
particularly with collar and cuffs ot
fur, and for the child who takes earn
of her clothes, there is no color better
suited to youth and beauty than a
light shade of tan.

MAKING THE WINDMILL SECURE
Precautions to Prevent Violent Strain
on Barn Frame.
A heavy stool tower and windmill
built on a barn frame makes a con
siderable weight for the timbers to
bear. It is well to have the tower so
thoroughly braced as to bo perfectly
rigid. Three twisted wire cables can
be used for guys to run from tho top
of the tower to heavy anchor posts set
deeply in the ground. These guys will
keep the tower rigidly in position and
prevent any strain on the barn frame
in a violent windstorm.
Tho wkcteh and tho following d
script ion will fully explain:

A new smoke-prevention device for
