This lovely garment is designed to go with the other garments of this same pattern. ' I i DAINTY LINGERIE When we have completed our Christ J mas gifts, and finished the last ball; of sweater yam in the house, rather than let the lona; evening pass with ; out accomplishing something, we might; turn our attention to the scrap-box and pick out dainty pieces of nnnlin that can be made into lingerie. Dainty ; corset covers can be made of ever so small remnants of nainsook and lace; perhaps we may even have a tiny ! piece of georgette or crepe de chine; that could be itfed. The cover in ' the hands of the pajama-clad lady is an excellent example of what you ! can do with small pieces of material. ! The outline of' the lace makes this garment very attractive, and the in-, sets of coarse net, finished at the cor ner with a Wee bit of handwork, com pletes its simple beauty. j The robe de nuit is made in the same pattern, and the set-in kimono J sleeves insure longer wear as well as; being beautiful. The pieces on the i shoulder are made of tucked net A few tucks in front and back give need ed fullness, and when finished this garment slips on over the head. The charming little figure on the left is sweetly feminine in every way, from the tojmost bow on her pretty head to the newest of new footwear. Something about the boudoir cap gives It a fresh girlish outline, perhaps it is the net of which it is made, or perhaps the very bow perched high upon the head, anyway it should be becoming to every woman. The "knickers" and bodice petticoat are made of crepe de chine, the ruffles are of plain pleated net; ribbon bows to match the cap tie in cupid bows on the shoulder. The net motif is the same that is used on the gown and corset corer. Many of us do not find time to make our own underwear, and yet we do ap preciate the little hand touches that make these garments so appealing. Many wom.eh buy plainer garments of nice material and original design, and. then.. trim ,them In individual ways . by .a dding touches of . lace or handwork.

The-quaint workmen in the jew elry shops speed up their produc tion; in the Japanese bazaars the rare and shimmering silks and the bright colored kimonos are heaped all day long on tbe counter, and the streets are crowded with shop pers. No matter how much time one passes amid Oriental art treasures, .. one never becomes surfeited with them, for there is a certain air of mystery about the products of the Far East that keeps one's interest aflame. Perhaps it is because the art of the Chinese and Japanese is so unlike that of the Occident that it holds its charm; or maybe the .reason is to be found in the histor ical associations that the Oriental vases and paintings, bronzes and lacquer ware bring with them over seas. The religions of Japan are plainly reflected in the nation's art, as is true of most other countries. CHERRY Street Novelties - Goods TALK closes in front, and if closing at the back then vice versa. This small strip can be easily replaced, and renders! unnecessary the taking off of snaps and fastenings. While we are di::ussing delightful airy nothings, we might stretch a point and tell something about dainty little bib and bibless aprons for the home.

Then followed a deification of the illustrious dead as well as of family ancestors; on the death of a mem ber of a family he becomes "kaml." or one to whom prayer is offered. The reverencing of ancestors con tinues to this day. Chinatown has more oojects of Oriental art concentrated in a com paratively small area than has al most any other city outside of San Francisco In the UaitecT States.

YVTio knows i but what they may become as muchj a style feature as peplums or tunics or bustles? Without- a doubt the knitting apron will prove the mst popular of all, for by this time most of us have dis covered that yams do leave more than a trace of lint on our dark gown3. Some of us have found comfort in these knitting bags of fancy fabrics that untie into aprons, and then tin up again into bags when the day's knitting is done,, but they are by no means common and a separate apron would prove a joy to many a faithful knitter. And there was found another fig ured apron which looked as if it had been a piece of grandmother's foulard dinner gown, that had been retrieved from the ignominy of the scrap bag. The white satin background with its dainty tracings of cobwebby black lines, was finished with apple green ribbon, and all around the edge was a ruffle of finely plaited net. Tiny black velvet bows held the bib in place, and finished the corners of the apron. Any one wearing an apron of this sort over a china hjue frock would present a charming picture, and look much likr a choice bit of colonial interior decoration Directors of the Solar Refining Co. declared the regular semi-annual divi dend oflo a share, and an extra divi dend of $25 a share. will find them there, hundreds of years old; if In modern examples of Oriental craftsmanship, that line is Just as varied and complete. 'The Chinatown bazaars have not taken advantage of the high cost of living to raise the prices of those goods imported before the rate advanced. They are still Jteld at the old figure, but once sold, they cannot be replaced at the prices which now obtain. This sit uation has appealed strongly to connoisseurs, who are daily takin? advantage of it. Perhaps the sandalwood fan, which can be.purchased at virtual ly every Chinese and Japanese store is the most popular of the smaller purchases. There are fans of var ious feathers, also.
