White wash fabrics, including many of the now rough weaves in cotton, af ford the player a wide choice of cot ton materials. The coarser weaves In linen are always dependable for the .tennis costume.

The plain skirt is in two pieces joined with an overlapped seam Types of Hats TYPES of hats for present wear, as sot forth in tho picture shown here, demonstrate tho popularity of feathers in August millinery. The Bmall close-fitting turban, made of whlto feathers with tall upstanding squills, is tho most fashionable, of late summer models. Hats similar in .shape, and even more close fitting, made of white satin, crepe de chine, .and black velvet, aro trimmed with broad bands of white feathors and finished in nearly every instance with tall fancy feathers mounted at the front. These turbans in white are tho forerunners of feather turbans, In colors, for early fall. After the feather turban, all-white Tiata of felt or frames covered with fabric and trimmed with wings have made for themselves tho strongest iplaco in iopular demand. Wings of all kinds, bo long as they aro fairly soft, ono sees mounted In as great a variety of ways ns there is variety In tho wings thomselves.

Tho yield of each of these crops was ma terially increased by mulching and' tho labor requlrod was considerably' Iobb than in tho case of cultivation' alono. Mulched cabbage produced Jargon heads than cultivated cabbago, and there was less injury from rot. Tho vigor of tomato plants was decreased by mulching, but tho yield of fruit in creased. Tho fruit was also cloaner and less subject to rot.
