Brilliant Colors Hare
Again in Hats.
Collection of Interesting Topics
For the Women.
Eelt buckles are being replaced by belt
pins. The belt when of ribbon or other
soft material la simply crossed in front
and fastened with this new device.
Colored hats are extremely modish
and are especially pretty with the thin
summer gowns.
A new combination of colors is "cream
and white." This sounds simple but it
would hardly pay aa amateur to at
tempt it.
Little girls are wearing the broad
brimmed hats of Tuscan straw simply
trimmed with a full bow of double faced
ribbon in front, and strings.
Just as every one has her poeketbook
or finger purse decorated with a silver
or gold monogram, comes the edict that
the monogram must be carved in the
leather to be strictly up-to-date.
Colored gingham petticoats elaborate
ly trimmed with lace and Insertion are
being worn with wash dresses.
Pink in all the prettiest tints is un
doubtedly popular this season and
striking combinations are made by the
use of violet or heliotropes with it.
Ash gray is one of the newest shades
introduced but only women with perfect
complexions should attempt to wear it.
Among the loveliest creations in whit3
petticoats is one of white China silk,
with two llounces of mousseline de soie,
finely shirred at the top and dged with
an insertion of silk lace. The corset
cover which accompanies It is made of
fine nainsock. and shows clusters of
tucks separated by the lace insertions
and tied on the shoulders with ribbon
The tiny band of black velvet contin
ues to be worn around the base of white
linen or fancy collars, and when worn
with fancy ribbon collars, several tiny
cut steel buckles or slides fastened on
the velvet at intervals is a pretty addi
tion. London has gone blouse mad. The
swell shops go right on showing new de
signs every day. and still the cry goes
up for fresher things. Much la"e and
fluffs of chiffon and the baby ribbon are
worked into most of the summer styles.
A New Fad.
The tendency of the smart woman to
choose black handles for her sunshades
is very marked this season. The shop
keepers say that the black handle never
enjoyed such a vogue, and they account
fur it by the equally great vogue of
plain, pale colors, such as pink, blue,
yellow and lilac. With a silk sunshade
of any of these tints a black handle is
more effective than the most elaborate
stick of pale hue and mounted with
fancy wood or precious metaJ. Ebony,
gun metal and black oak are used for
these sticks. Many of the tops are of
cut jet, crystal or gun metal studded
with jewels or picked out with gold.
Summer Dancing Frocks.

creations is In the form of a dancing

toned fabrics which are harmoniously
blended. The undergown is of pale rose
taffeta. Over this is a full skirt of white
silk muslin, veiled in turn with an elab
orate over-dress of sun-pleated muslin.
The latter is panelled by means of in
troduced stripes of Pompadour ribbon
that appear at intervals all around the
skirt, which is' divided at the left side
of the front. The two sides are softly
caught together under large fluffy ro
settes of white muslin. The body is
swathed in pleated white muslin divided
by figured ribbon, and a high corsage
belt of pink muslin over rose silk com
pletes the lower portion. The shirred
sleeves are finished with deep flounce of
transparent gauze, and are divided by
bands of Pompadour ribbon fastened
back of the arm in small bows. A fea
ture of the gown is the large rosette of
silk muslin attached to the back of the
neck and ending in wide sashes two,
that reach almost to the foot of the
skirt. Harper's Bazar.

Fair visitors to the exposition are
writing home to say that American and
English women are by far the best, that
is to say, the most sensibly, dressed wo
men at the great fair.
French women, so these critics say,
wear trailing gowns of light silk -or
lawn, which would be suitable for a
garden party or other afternoon affair,
but which do not emerge triumphant
from an all-day's struggle with heat,
dust and the crowd.
American women wisely adopt the
simple, short-skirted costumes of serge
or mohair, which sheds the dust ajid is
so easily cleaned that, with a few fresh
sliJrt waists or more dressy blouses, it
keeps its wearer dainty and neat for
weeks. And the woman who has once
tried sight-seeing in a trailing gown will
brave fashion many times before she
attempts it again.
Seasonable Topics of Conversation.
Princess Sada, bride-to-be of the
young Crown Prince of Japan, is to
have a trousseau costing at least $1,
000.000. The emperor and the family of
the bride will make up this enormous
sum between them. The garments will
be equally divided between Oriental
and Parisian manufacture.
The women of Abyssinia have all the
law on their side. The woman owns
everything, and may turn her husband
out of doors at will, and, if taken back,
he must buy his way with a peace of

entirely with the wife, and she can di

Miss Helen Gladstone, daughter of
England's Grand Old Man, is writing a

prevents their spreading by soaking up

way, would cause the oil to float and the
fire to increase.
Old newspapers are quite Invaluable
to the thrifty housewire. Spread on the

the labor of scouring, but the wear and

and for polishing a stove it is as good
as a brush, and makes less dust. News

Origin of a Familiar Costum.
Like all familiar customs the origins
of which are lost in antiquity, the
wearing of orange blossoms at a wed
ding is accounted for in various ways.
Among other stories is the following
popular legend from Spain:
An African king presented a Spanish
king with a magnificent orange tree,
whose creamy, waxy blossoms and won
derful fragrance excitedvthe admiration
of the whole court. Many begged in
vain for a branch of the plant, but a
foreign ambassador was tormented by
the desire to introduce so great a curi
osity to his native land. He used every
possible means, fair or foul, to accom
plish his purpose, but all hi3 efforts
coming to naught, he gave up in de
spair. The fair daughter of the ' court
gardener was loved by a young artisan,
but lacked the dot which the family
considered necessary to a bride. One
day, chancing to break off a spray of
orange blossoms, the gardener thought
lessly gave it to his daughter.
Seeing the coveted prize in the girl's
hair, the wily ambassador offered her a
sum sufficient for the desired dowry,
provided she would give him the branch
and say nothing about it. Her marriage
was soon celebrated, and on her way to
the altar, in grateful remembrance of
the source of all her happiness, she se
cretly broke off another bit of the lucky
tree to adorn her hair.
Whether the poor court gardener lost
his head in consequence of his daugh,
ter's treachery the legend does not state.
but many lands now know the wonder
ful tree, and ever since that wedding
day orange blossoms have been consid
ered a fitting adornment for a bride.
A Restful Suggestion.
When one goes home at night aft
a fatiguing day, nothing is more restful
than bathing the head and back of the
neck with a towel wrung out of water
as hot as can be borne. It soothes the
nerves and rests the body and brain.
The same treatment relieves a nervous
headache as nothing else does. When
one is overheated and there is a rush of
blood to the head, a hot towel applied
to the face and head is a great relief.
A good way of varying the simple
custard is to put in each cup before
the custard is poured in a tablespoon
of either strawberry or raspberry jam.
Dried or crystalized fruits are as good
an addition as is the jam. Chocolate
custards are made by adding to the cus
tard mixture enough melted chocolate
to give a rich color.
For another custard pudding take the
seeds from one-half pound of dates
and fill the space with finely chopped
nut meats, either almonds or English
walnuts being good for the purpose.
Press the edges of the dates together.
roll them in powdered sugar and lay
them aside till the custard is light
brown. Take the custard from the
oven, put the dates on top and cover
with a meringue, flavored with vanilla.
Brown in the oven and serve cold.
For most of the custard puddings It
Is well to make the custard richer by
using more egg yolks and cream and
milk in place of milk. A very rich pud
ding is made by adding stoned raisins,
preserved ginger and candied citron to
the custard.
Tomatoes may be stuffed with a rice
force-meat, and baked. ' To make a
force-meat, take one-half cupful of
boiled rice to every six tomatoes. Fla
vor it with onion juice, a finely chopped
green pepper, six finely cut mush
rooms, and the tomato scooped from
the shell. Season to taste with pepper
and salt, and fill the shells with the
mixture. Place the tomatoes open side
down in a tin, plaGe a small piece of
butter on each, and bake for about
twenty minutes. Reverse them with a
griddle turner, and garnish with par
sley. To fry tomatoes, put two tablespoon
fuls of butter in a frying pan, and add
to it a tablespoonful of finely chopped
onion. Cook the onion until it is yel
low and remove it. Cut the tomatoes
in halves, let a little of the juice drain
from them, place them in the pan, and
cook for five minutes. Turn them and
cook them five minutes longer.
Tomatoes may be salted and peppered,
dipped into beaten egg and cracker
crumbs and fried until they are brown.
For these it is better not to use the
onion. They are particularly delicious
served with fish.
Scientific experiments show that eggs
should be cooked carefully arrd slowly
at a low degree of heat, not only the
egg which' is cooked in boiling water,
but whenever, wherever and however
it is to be cooked. Boiled, bakei1, fried
or scrambled, cooked alone or in com
bination with other fot.ds, the rule is
the same. It is a common opinion that
eggs can be cooked quicky and to ac
complish this end it is necessary to use
all the heat it is possible to command.
It is admitted that eggs do cool: quick
ly, as compared with other foods. ever
when the slowest process is used, but
eggs cooked rapidly at a high degree
of heat lose a large per cent, of their
value as a perfect food. Experiments
made in cooking eggs show that when
cooked at a high temperature the egg
becomes hard and tough, while it ac
quires a jelly-like consistency if cooked
at a low degree of heat. It is in the

From a Ixmir Island woman, members
of whose family lived for a lonff time
in Damascus, the following' recipe for
rose syrup is obtained:
Cut the roses in full bloom, pull out
the petals and spread on a tray to pre
vent mildew. Keep cutting the rosea
off and spreading the petals out until
there Is enough for a jar or tumbler of
preserve, if you can do up only a small
ouantlty. Then put the rose leaves
into a' preserve kettle, with water, cover
and cook till tender. Add susar and
boil until it forms a syrup. Pour Into
fruit cans or Jelly jars. In Damascus
this Is served In small cups and passed
around on silver trays for visitors to
partake of.
Tt makes, also, a delicious addition to
pudding sauce, or tbe batter for deli
rat" cake, and the English or American
residents of Damascus have added it to
mince pie meat with happy results, a
peculiarly delicate flavor bein thus Im
parted to the pie.
When making a cake regulate the
temperature of the oven according to
the kind of cake to be made.
Fold the flour in carefully, instead
cf by strong circular strokes.
Keep the raisins, currants, and other
fruit in a warm room over niht,
dreda-e thoroutrhy with flour and stir in
lightly the last thing.
