You think they might enjoy life to
the utmost, with a lovely, old-fast-ioned
gabled white house, with a wida
colonial porch all overhung with wis

be recommended to the college girl's
attention Is of a red currant shade and
cut In a --"soutane shape, buttoned
frqm top to bottom .with tiny buttons
of the same stuff, which are also found
on the sleeves. The cut Is especially
new, being without any seams under
the arms, a characteristic which has
gained it the title of "chauve souris."

trimmed with gold cord and a numidla
feather is worn with the coat
For wear under this coat and In the
schoolroom Is the natty little gown In
the cut of a blue and green plaid. The
yoke is made in rest style and buttons
high up to the throat where a little
turnover collar of embroidery adds ,a
final touch ,It s mrart In the school

top of the foliage, but under it' The
liquid, besides . fumigating the plants,
will enrich the. soil, and it Is invalu
able for checking mildew on roses.
To keep flowers tn nice condition
shave a pound of soap very finely Into
a gallon of boiling water. When dis
solved add twenty-four gallons of cold
water and use without ' delay. If a
small, quantity Is wanted dissolve one
sixth of a etiiall cake of soap In a pint
of boiling wst'f and add a gallon and
a half of cold water. .
Apply to rose plants, carnations, vio
let leaves and the like. Half an hour
after . applying rinse off the solution
with soft, clear water.
For begonias, fuchsias, ferns and all
tender and bulbous plants add a third
more water to the solution so that It
will be about three-fourths as strong
as the one mentioned above, and.
again, after half an hour, rinse off. with
clear, soft water. Be careful always
to reach the under as well as the up
