trait to acquire, courtesy is infinite

'What Makes a Gentleman," in the
July Ladies' Home Journal. "Po
liteness is manners, but courtesy is
heart. Mingling in good socinty
can give us that veneer which the
world call" a polish of manners, and
true politeness Is not to he made lit

fine art, but is an art pure and' sim
ple, even at if best. Infinitely bet
ter ia the cultivation of that cour

the feelings of others and holds
them sacred. What we want our
young men to have is courtesy of
manner not reguiated by social code
or professional censor. It is idle to
say that courtesy is a relic of old
fashioned days and is no longer
looked for. It is as much the cur
rent coin of good society as it ever
was. More than any other element
or grace in our lives, it is instantly
felt and recognized, and lias an un
failing influence. It calls for re

Advance plates from the fashion
marts abroad show that the big neck

fashionable. These may be made
up ia shirt-waist style, or more
dressy with yokes ol strips of tucks

gingham skirts, or the ru filed taffe

stay all summer.
All white dresses are permitted in
mourning, and in wash gowns black
and white is accepted as mourning,
though the fashionable craze lor
black and white ha made it neces
sary to wear with such gowns very
heavy dull-black ribbons. Black
chillon is much used in mourning
now, and very comfortable and
dressy summer blouses are made of
this material, to be worn with cloth
or mourning silk skirts.
The latest news I hear from the
shoe realms is that colored strings
are the proper caper. My lady's low
shoes of black are strung with silk
laces in gay plaid, or of a color to
match her'frock. Outing shoes are

Many white and tan piques are

Lace has always been beloved of
the French woman, and, indeed, by
every woman, though the American
woman ha always been a little
cautious in its use,'prefering to wear
no lace at all if she could not wear
the very finest. Now all this is
changed. While she still holds to
the "real lace" rule for all her
handsome costumes, she indulges
her fancy in the many other varie
ties of lace that are made just for
moderately-priced gowns. There
are laces just for 'ginghams and
linens, and lawns, and they are of
such stvle as to be perfectly appro

Afternoon waists of lace or net are
very modish. The combining of
lace and mousseline de soie is new

are found in this combination.

A pretty summer fashion idea is
the putting on of finely pleated blue
muslin frills on white drer.ses, and
one often finds them on the brown
linens, if no other place, at neck and
wrists, and cascadingdown the edge
of a narrow white vest. Ho popular
are the blue lawn ruflles in London
that the shops are selling them by
the yard ready made, and importers
here say that they are included in
their latest orders. The blue of
which they are mad", is that pretty
bright, but soft, shade known as
mauve blue. Any other shade is
not so elegant.
Ginghams are frequently trimmed
with ribbons. They are no more
designed to wash than challes, and
are quite as pretty and much cooler.
A stylish girl seen on Broadway the
other day was gowned in a beautiful
gingham, in soft brown and green
shades, trimmed with white satin
ribbons. It was a half-inch ribbon
that was used, gathered through the
middle ind run on in apron shipe
on the skirt, and several rows gave
a bolero effect to the jacket. It is
really quite surprising how delight

A fashion that, I am informed
upon good authority, will extend
well into the next season of dinners
and dances is the flouncing of gowns
from hem to waist, with lace; and,
in fact, covering the entire gown
with lace. This is a fashion that
was much in vogue during the late
'70's and early '80's; so, if there is a
woman who has nicely tucked away
her fine lace flounces, she may now
bring them forth. The old-fashioned
prejudice of combining two
sorts of lace has been overcome by
the artistic effects that have recent
ly been brought about through this
very thing. It is not at all unusual
to see a frill of old-fashioned Yak
lace edging, a yoke of Valencinnes.
Ft is, therefore, an easier matter
now to put odds and ends of laces
to good use.
How to Cue the Coral Necklace.
If vnu have been fortunate enough
to preserve the little necklace ni
coral beads and the sleevebands
which you wore when you were an
infant you can be in the height of
fashion at small expense. They can
be converted Into belt ornaments
and make you the envied of your
sex. They can be arranged on the
top of the pretty shell-back comb
which finishes your coitTure or even
edge your side combs. No shade of
red harmonizes so well with a fair
skin as coral, and its present price
makes it an expensive addition to a
woman's toilet. Pink coral shares
favor with the more common red,
and can be used to advantage by
women to whom red is not becom
ing. The Lawn Stock.
How to becomingly, and at the
same 'time guitaoly, dress the
neck when a lawn frock is worn is
often a question. A straight tucked
band is too plain and ruffles are not
always becoiniirr. The stocks of
white lawn have partly solved this
problem, and the latest notion of a
stock to match the frock is most
satisfactory. A fashionable dress
maker showed me the other day
how the lawn stock is arranged.
The bodice with the trimmed front
is buttoned down the back, and the
high collar with inner lining of stif
fened muslin is fastened to the
bodice. This is tucked or shirred,
the extra fullness going to form the
width of the cravat. The nnds at
the back are crossed and brought
around and tie in a sailor knot in
front. The ends are neither long
nor wide, and th ends are pointed
and frilled. This is a very simple
way of dressing the neck. The
stock en suite can be made adjust
able, so at times a white lawn one
can take its place. In shirt waists
it is quite the proper caper to wear
collars that match.
FVKNISHINO A VERAND A.
A Warm Weather I4vJnR Hooin for Coun
try hiuI Suburban Homes.
Every year the veranda is becom
ing more and more an integral part
of the house beautiful. It is no
longer merely a shelter from the
elements, sparsely furnished with
chairs, but is a living room and
treated as such, and is furnished
with the same taste and care that
are bestowed upon the best of the
rooms. Of course, it goes without
saying that ooth the textiles1 and
furnitures employed must be as far
as possible weather proof, but this is
no handicap nowadays, as rugs and
materials that defy rain and snow
are to be had in the greatest variety,
except directly on the seashore,
where the dampness and high winds
make it impossible, says . the New
York Tribune, from which the fol
lowing suggestions on furnishing a
veranda are reproduced :
An outdoor room, netted in so
that the lights at night will not at
tract troublesome insects, prettily
and comfortably furnished, should
be part of every country house. Cur
tains mide of colored awning cloth
and hung with small brass rings on
a ilender galvanized iron rod, so that
they may easily be pushed forward
and back, are both useful and pretty,
although some people prefer Vene
tian blinds or the rattan shades,
which now come for verandas in
any width desired. Hammocks, of
course, are the natural lrunging
places for a veranda room, but they
are now made much more elaborate
ly than formerly, with valences
hanging n either side and piled
up with cushions of many colors.
Another recent accessory to outdoor
furniture which has become popular
is the swinging sofa, legless, of
course, swung by four chains to the
roof and filled with cushions.
Even the divan has been adapted
to open air furnishing. One which
filled a corner of the veranda of a
seaside cottage last summer is shaped
like an irregular elongated triangle,
with two sides against the walls of
he house, and consists of a fra'iie a
foot high, on which is a mattress
covered with India rubber cloth.
Over this is a buttoned covering of
green denim, with a flounce, and the
(frapery consists of an old sail and a
fish net, which is held up by a pair
of oars and a crab net, all of whi"h
have been well seasoned by wind

The sympathetic tenderness of a lov

following case :
