AY hen Loving Mtitlier Grow Selttnli.
"It is when children reach maturi
ty that the supreme test of parental
love comes," writes Edward W.
liok, discussing the home-leaving
of children at time of marriage, in
the May Ladies' Home Journal.
"All through infancy and early
years the children are more or less
care. And then, just as the parents
feel relieved from cares aud
anxieties, and are beginning to en
joy the companionship of their chil
dren in the serene and complacent
way which 'grown-ups' have, there
comes a fluttering of the wings, a
remote suggestion of flight. The
son is no less his mother's boy than
ihe has been and ever will be. But
;ne is and who realizes it so quickly
as a mother? in a new and very
natural sense, another woman's
hero; and that woman a girl. With
lier he discerns, away out on the
horizon lino, the shadowy lines of a
house that is to become a home, their
very own. The girl, too, whose
going in and out of the house lias
heeii a daily joy to the parents she,
too, has become a heroine to some
one other than her father or her
mother. It is hard for the parents
to realize that this mate of her flight
can care for her as they have; that
in her young eyes, in her young
Jieart, it is possible that he can be
altogether noble and capable! And
after the young birds have taken
flight the parents wonder if some
times they do not grieve in their
new life. ' But some tine morning a
clearer vision is given them, ami
they realize that, alter all, their
children are only playing the same
role which they played a few years
before. It is a magnificent quality
in parents when they so prepare
themselves that they can meet this
inevitable time with the proper
spirit when, in other words,
parental love can get the better o!

Slashing is a form of trimming
very much in vogue. It is used on
tailor-made walking gowns and cy
cling costumes. The edges appear
to be held by rows of very small but
tons and loops of braid or cord. In
many cases, long, pointed slashings
'trim the front of 6kirts, and the same
idea is also carried out on the
sleeves, which open up the front

the face, and long ends of plain tulle
or cambric net, which, after being
tied at the back of the head, cross
over and tie under the chin with a
cravat bow. Some veils have lace
appliques at the ends, and others
have kilted frills, but all are very
dainty and becoming.
The distinct tendency of all new
jackets is to do without seams.
Many of the very latest are tucked
to fit in to the waijt, or are worn in
blouse form, belted in.
"Athletic" serge, a superior ma
terial for all outdoor purposes, is
much sought by women who have

Not only do the new colors of the
season indicate a complete revolu
tion in taste, but also in their com
bination. Cerise is one of the domi
nant shades, mingled with Parma
violets; rose pink, shot with white,
appears in juxtaposition to mauve
and to vivid blues, while orange and
dark blue are always placed togeth

It is a welcome bit of news that
informs us that following the very
high neck ruches of the present mo
ment, there will appear on all dressy
toilets pleatlngs of lace that droop
gracefully from a soft narrow folded
stock of net, ribbon or chiffon.
Hatin girdles, with deep point at
the back, and narrowing until only
about three inches wide at the front,
are to be had for wear with the little
"mess" jackets that come only to
the waist lines. This belt closes in
the front under the chic bows of
narrow, black satin ribbon.
Slender women continue to wear
the Empire sash, softly folded
around the vait, the wide ribbon or
scarf being often carried twice
around the figure. Fuller forms
wisely adopt the girdle, shaped as
flatly as possible.
The craze for red seems to have
extended literally from our heads to
our feet, for rumor says that we are
to wear red shoes, bright "cocks

purple and green as well. It is
hardly credible that we are to be
inflicted with any innovation in
dress, but if it is to be, the seaside

There are equal numbers of Moth

Borne of the prettiest effects of last
season were obtained by the liberal
use of gathered black silk mull
ruffles, and the liking for them has
extended beyond that one season
The canes, many of the gowns and
collarettes have them, and they
are pretty. To be entirely lashton
able they should be cut on the
straight and roll hemmed and the
upper edge folded down and gath
ered with long stitches in bpanish
style. That gives the round, irregu
lar fold which distinguishes this
kind of ruffle. In some cases it is
not hemmed, but bound with nar
row satin ribbon, hand sewed, and
one row of narrow satin ribbon is
run on just below the binding.
For, trimming a cape it is sewed
down the openings iu front and all
around the lower edge, while around
the neck is a triple row, forming
verv full ruff. This black silk mull
ruffling is also used as trimming up
on waists or all Kinds, except print
and upon some silk shirt waists. It
is put around the bottom of grena
dine and black net skirts, and it is
in order for all the lighter silks in
the way of jabots aud ruffles. Full

be worn in so many ways that It is
scarcely worth while to mention
them all, though I must not forget
parasols, which are beruffled and
putted to an incredible extent. Silk '
mull is not so pretty as chiffon or so
light and delicate, hut it is trans

Care of the Iiif.mt lli'wtl.
Many mothers think that the
heads of infants, whether covered
early by a thick growth of hair or a
fine, almost invisible down, need
little washing. Consequently a
thick coating, as white as the scalp
at first, but gradually darkening
with age until of an ugly brown col
or, covers the scalp.
Through this growth the hair must
force itself if it grows at all, and
often the weak little hirsute arrange
ment becomes discouraged and
sends out only a few straggling hairs
where a thick, short down should
To encourage a healthy growth
the infant's head should be washed
daily just as the body is by lather
ing gently with castle soap and rins
ing in warm water. This keeps the
head clean and free from the pecu
liar growth. If, however, it has
made its appearance, very gentle
bur decided means should be em
ployed to eradicate it.
Mix together a teaspoonful of
borax, powdered, and a tablespoon
ful of white vaseline, and with the
mixture and the finger ends rub
gently but thoroughly the head.
Let it stand half an hour or less and
then wash with plenty of castile soap
and warm water. If all the scurf is
not removed by the first application,
renew it next morning until the head

hair is unruly, lacking life and gloss,
this treatment will be beneficial
Hub the mixture in thoroughly
and then wash out, brushing the
hair thoroughly when dry. Never
use a wet brush on the children s
heads to keep them in order; rather
brush them and wash them until
they become silken and pliable, re
maining as arranged by the natural
life and oil of the hair itself.
Never use oils or dressing on a
child's hair. Perfect cleanliness is
more to be desired than the slick
ness oil imparts. Moreover, a head
well greased will catch and hold
dust that settles upon the scalp, in
uring the growth and vigor of the
lair materially. Clipping the ends
of the hair when they have become
frayed and 6plit stimulates new life
and causes the hair to thicken,

persistent brushing will soon repay
