my lneaninir as well as does the
fj iia i nt M-tim- word. To he '-tidy,"
Webster tells ih, "is to be arranged
in good order; neat ; kept i'.i nroper
and becoming neatness." Nowa
days girl.s are neat to a certain ex
tent and in a certain way. They
bathe freelv and wear clean clothes.
5ut are they tidy? Frequently they
are not. Their hair is often loose
and prone to tumble down, their
glove are sometimes ripped at the
finger tips, and often one or two but
tons are lacking from their boots.
The stock collar if often fastened on
with an ordinary white pin that is
very obvious, and the veil has oc
casionally a hole over the nose or
chin. Our girl is charming. Put is
she as careful as she should be?
The other day I was making a
morning call at a fi ieinl's house, and
there met another caller, a woman
who made a most agreeable im
pression upon me. She was not
elaborately dressed, but her black
tailor-made gown fitted her well, and
there was not a spot or a speck of
dust on it. I knew that it had been
brushed carefully before she left her
room. Her linen collar and cutis
were snowy white and did not twist
or shift from their proper places.
Her gloves did not wrinkle, and but
toned smoothly over the wrists.
Her shoes were like the rest of her
attire, dainty, and her bonnet rested
firmly and straight on soft brown
hair that, while wavy and fluffy,
was neatly dressed, and so securely
pinned that I fancy a high wind
would not have caused it to come
down. A thin veil covered a fresh
complexion and bright face. The
tout ensemble gave one the Idea of
daintiness and delicate finish. In
ppeaking of this woman afterward
to a man who knows her I said:
"There is something about her ap
pearance that charms one. Vhat is
"I will tell you," he aid. "She is
a well groomed woman. 1 here are
never anv rough or loose ends aboul
"You mean that she is tidy," I
said to him.
"You can call it Hidv;' I say 'well
groomed.' We both mean the same
However one may express it in
sporting terms or with the old
fashioned word is the condition
not well worth striving for? Noth

detrimental to the fascination of
beauty or personal charm, as the
lack of this quality. Harper's

extremely smart, and for silk, mus
lin, gauze or cashmere frocks this is
most singularly fetching. It takes
time to create such a skirt, and
twice or three times the usual
amount of material, and in con
sequence the dressmaker's bill for
such a skirt is always very large,
especially when each little ruffle is
bound or edged with lace or velvet.
With such skirts the nodice is
) usually pulled, and has sleeves
IputTed all the way from wrist to
I shoulders, and a sash or tight cein
j ture nips in the waist, while the
1 stock is close and high, with a frill
! or ruche standing up about the top
I ed je.
A great deal of trimming is
lavished upon sleeves, just as it is
upon skirts, and, although they fit
the arm closely, they are fussed up
to look larger than the natural arm.
Little, full frills of lace are some
times set on. one after the other, an
inch apart, from shoulder to wrist,
tl. top being slightly bouffant, and
the wrist veiyioiig, iiali-covering
I'uiTed sleeves are in high favor,
and the puffs composing them are
both large and small. A very pretty
fancy is that of separating the puffs
with a narrow row of black velvet
ribbon, making up a very dressy
whole. For the new cashmere
gowns this is a charming fashion, as
the flue cashmere makes the most
beautiful puffs. Occasionally one
sees sleeves puffed lengthwise, with
the velvet ribbon running between
the puffs, but this mode is only suit
able for women with stout arms, as
it makes a slender arm look very
small and thin.
The Rights of a Voting Wife.
"Before everything else the young
woman has a right to expect from
her husband, tenderness, sympathy
and faith," saysslluth Ashmore,
writing in the June Ladies' Home
Journal of "What to Expect From a
i oung Man. "Kut sometimes, in
his eagerness to make all life fair to
her, he fancies she is a doll, and not
a woman. And a doll is a very sel
fish toy; it demands careful treat
ment all the time, and it gives noth
ing but a pretty appearance in re
turn. Ft is the foolish wife who ex
pects infallibility in her husband.
She forgets that there is a difference
between the housewife and the
house moth. She should expect
from her husband politeness at all
times, and a certain gentleness that
every man, possessing the real in
stinct of a man, gives to a woman.
Hut she should not expect from him
too much. She has no right what
ever to ask of him permission to live
a lazy life herself, and to give up all
her days and years to vain and idle
thoughts. When the wife can
make her husband's home-coming a
joy, his home-staying a pleasure
and a delight, and his leaving home
a sorrow, then, and then only, can
she expect a great deal from him."
For June lirlden.
There is a popular idea that June
is the favorite month for weddings,
and that the young woman who
loves romance and wishes fortune to
smile upon her nuptials in every
way must choose this of all months,
('old and unromantic fact, however,
shows that the three most popular
marriage months are October, No
vember and December. Fifty years'
records show this to be true, and
also demonstrate the fact that the
most unpopular months for mar-
riages are January, b ebruary and
I in- an Klalmratn V cdilinir,
the bride's gown must of course be
rich, but always of pure white.
As for the gowns that the June
bridesmaids will wear you must
see them to know just how really
beautiful gowns of grenadine crepe
de chine ana a nunureu other airy
fabrics can be.
I notice that pink coutinues as
much in vogue as ever as a popular
color at weddings. It has quite
taken the place of the dainty blue
that held sway, and was about the
only color permitted in wedding
toilets for so long. Yellow and
green come next to pink in popu
larity. The favorite bodice model in
bridesmaids' frocks has a neck cut
only moderately low and round, and
long slepves that come down over
the hands in f'ills of lace or other
flimsy stuif. No jewelry is worn by
the up-to-date bridesmaid. The
bridesmaid's slippers must cor
respond in color with the silk lining
of her gown and general color
scheme. If her gown is a green and
white one. her slinners nnil stnek-
' intra miltir h.t nf irrpon Wifl-i fl,
long-sleeved gown she does not
wear gloves, but carries in her hand
a boquet of natural llowers, either
pure white or some very delicate
tint, tied with ribbon to match her
gown. Grenadine, In white, is a
fabric particularly adaptable to re
quirements of the bridesmaid's
frock. It drapes effectively and is
just thin enough to show the bright
silk lining, worn beneath it, suf
ficiently. One of the new white grenadine
frocks of the season is made up over
creamy white satin. The skirt hangs
full and is bordered by no less than
fifteen rows or narrow white satin
ribbon. The sleeves are in tiny
pulls, between every putl a satiii
band and smart little bow. The full
bodice is striped with the ribbon
horizontally, and is cut square in
the neck, which is finished in a
quilling of white satin ribbon. A
wide white satin ribbon sash will be
worn about the waist tied at the
back. This frock is so arranged
that it can be worn over a colored
slip as well as the white one.
Figured organdie that is, organ
die with a white or delicately tinted
gronna, spritiKiea over with sprays
r clusters of Mowers, is very popu
lar ft r bridesmaids' gowns and is
less expensive than many other ma
terials that do not look as pretty
when made up. A very fetching or
gandie gown mat will do nicely for a
summer p irty gown, when the ser
vice it is particularly intended it
shall do is over with, has a ground of
ure white, over which are irregu-
arly scattered purple violets with
long green steins and occasional
leaf. This fock is made up over
white silk. A pale shade of violet
ribbon and white lace, of spider-web
fineness, does the trimming. The
sleeves are in tiny puffs, and about
the foot of the k irt there are five
very narrow nifties. Very girlish
and airy is this little frock.
Hats for Kriileamaiils.
The shade of color in the brides
maid's gown must he reproduced in
the hat. A pretty hat that Midann
the milliner calls -'simple," is of
white chip, with brim turned up
slightly at the back, and trimmed
with American beauty roses, of that
incomparable pink shade that is
fashionable just now, ami ribbon to
match. At the back of this hat will
be caught wide illusion strings held
there with jeweled pins brought
down to tie loosely under the chin,
the ends falling down almost to
the bottom of the skirt in front. Two
other beautiful models, that I heard
an entbusias'ic girl call '-perfect
dreams,." had for their chief glory
snowy birds with spreading wings
nestling among th flowers. One of
these, of fancy white lace straw,
was trimmed with clusters of violets,
white taffeta ribbon and the white
bird. Another was all of shirred
white tulle, laden with forget-me-nots.
The Wedding Gift.
The June Delineator gives some
ideas upon this subject which are
novel and useful. It says: The
choice of a wedding gift for the
June bride is not easy when she has
already many possessions. A novel
wedding present recently seen was a
silver spoon for dishing green peas,
the handle ornamented with a vine
ending in an open pod-full of peas,
while the bowl was perforated.
Another new gift is a tea b ill of
Dresden china, with silver mount
ings. Any pretty accessory for the
tea table is always a welcome gift.
A beautiful tea-pot of quite the lat
est design is of Rookwood ware, in a
pinkish-brown or olive tone, overlaid
with a silver net-work. The latest
vases, bonbon dishes, etc., show
such net-works of silver and gold,
most beautiful results being ob
tained from the combination of
glass or china and metal. Good
taste no longer sanctions the display
of the bridal gifts at the wedding
reception or breakfast, and more
and more frequently is this display
omitted. This is obviously to rob
one's friends of part of the delight
of the wedding festivities, for to see
what gifts have been received is no
jmall enjoyment to the average wo
man-guest. 1 hen, too, it is some
times insinuated that a certain rich
friend does not send her shining
gift to have its light thus hidden
under a bushel. Hence, to appease
all concerned, invitations are some
times sent out to a wedding-gift re
ception or tea two or three days be
fore the wedding. These invita
tions ire often written by the bride-to-be
and are cordial little notes
calling together her personal friends.
Not in the t'hurt'li.
A well known vicar gives a curi
ous experience. It was his custom
to point nis sermons with either
"dearly beloved brethren," or "now,
my brothers," until one day a lady
member of his congregation took
exceptions to this, and asked him
why he always preached to the gen
tlemen and neyer to the ladies
"My dear lady," said the beaming
vicar, "one embraces the other
"JJut not in the church," was the
reply of the astonished lady. Tid
The Irrepressible Shirt WaNt.
Of course a shirt waist, to be a
shirt waist, must conform to certain
rules, but it may be decorated ac
cording to fancy.
Very dainty little summer shirt
waists are made of plain muslin in
bright colors and arequite as stylish
as those of silk. A smart cotton
shirt waist is built of delft blue
chanibray, with a pointed yoke at
the back, small tucks forming a
yoke effect in front.
Tlaid waists, in both cotton and
silk, are en regale, and are finished
with a belt of plaid and stock of the
same. These are shown you by the
dealers as the latest novelties. They
will be much worn throughout the
summer season with crash and linen
You cannot go about picking up a
shirt waist here and th ere and ex
pect to look as well in them as your
more practical friend who has de
voted much time and thought to the
shirt waist subject. It is not the
question of !how many shirt waists
one owns, but how becoming they
are that is most important. Cut and
color are to be considered first, then
comes the style of the collar and the
Gingham, madras and percale are
to be preferred to those of thinner
materials for everyday wear, and,
in fact, are more appropriate.
Gloves always seem out of place
with cotton waists, and yet one does
not quite like to go barehanded.
Dressed kid gloves are certainly not
suitable, and wash chamois gloves
do look so clumsy. Silk gloves are
returning to favor, and these, with
thin suede, seem more in keeping
with cotton bodices or any outing
One Way to Serve Straw herrien.
Sprinkle over one pint of ripe
strawberries enough powdered sugar
to make them palatable, shake well,
cover, and let stand for Id minutes.
Whip half a pint of cream to a stiff
froth and turn on a hair sieve, so
that the milk can drain off. Give
the strawberries another shake,
then turn them in the form of a
pyramid on a glass dish, pour the
juice over, and cover them with the
whipped cream. Serve at once.

Kleetric Hitters is a medicine suited

liver is torpid and sbifrsrish and the
need of a tonie ami alterative is felt A
prompt use of this medicine lias often
averted long and perhaps fatal bilious
