TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, SATURDAY EVENLNG NOVEMBER 2.1901.
13 ' ' ' One of the Topeka dry goods stores, which la noted for its pretty lingerie, has one counter where nothing is shown but French lingerie. It is all hand made and trimmed -with yards and yards of the finest lace; the material used is of the sheerest, the tucks are of the finest, and the ruffles, the fluffi est. Many of the garments are em broidered by hand in white linen, in conventional or scroll design. The beading is run with the daintiest of ribbons. For the past year or two colored ribbons in lingeries have been the rage, and one noticeable feature of this department is that the ribbon is all white instead of colored. Of course, the corset shown here is of the short French make; one especially pretty one Is of white batiste, embroidered with a profusion of tiny purple violets. The cost of these garments is beyond the reach of the woman with the limited purse, but it will do her good just to go and look at them even if she canont buy. The "Baby's Department" All of the larger Topeka stores have put In "baby departments," which are a boon to mothers as well as the fond sisters, aunts and cousins who wish to make offerings to the little new comers and are inexperienced with the needle. The mother who is inexperienced, or the one who has neither the time nor Inclination to make her baby's clothes, may go to these dpartments, and for a comparatively small outlay of money, buy a charming outfit for the little one. There is the basket with all its ac cessories, except the little individual touches, which must be added by the mother. There is the dainty lingerie, rutfled and tucked and trimmed with the finest of laces and embroideries; the tiny dresses, the caps, the coats, shoes, stockings, and, in fact, every thing a baby may need from the time of its arrival, until it is several years old. Most of these garments are machine made, but it is possible to buy the hand made, though it is much more expensive. The Amethyst Popular. At last the much abused turquoise will have to step down and out, for it has been supplanted by the amethyst, so says the clerk in the Jewelry depart ment of one of the leading- dry goods stores. For the past year the imitation turquoise has been the rage: it has been utilized for stick pins, hair orna ments, belt pins and buckles, and has becorte so common that the well dress ed woman will no longer wear it. And now the imitation amethyst has its inning. Some exquisitely pretty ones are being shown in the stores in the shape of belt pins, and, of course, the stick pins and other ornaments wiil soon follow. The price asked for them is moderate and the best part of it is that they have not yet become common as they have only been brought out within the past few days. Hat Wrinkles. MOST "WOMEN HAVE THEM. Dorothea stopped short in front of a show window, and earnestly examined its contents. There was a wax figure with hair dyed a beautiful bronzed au burn, waved in immaculate circles; a smaller head, crowned with dark hair and one startling grey lock; a hideous photograph of a face all puckered up on one side and hideously placid on the other. Beside a lot of implements of torture. -and no end of healing lotions and salves in rubber-necked bottles and Jars, says a writer in the Denver Post. Dorothea knew everything in the win dow by heart she had passed it dozens of times but it was like the first at tempt at going into a pawnshop; she studied the window, warily watching the passers-by to see if they suspected her purpose. "I do hate to give in. I'm not getting old, but those abominable wrinkles are beginning to come, and I must stop them." And the coast being clear, she opened the door with a frantic clutch, closing it after 'her with decided relief. Madame was very reassuring. She touched the offending creases with sym pathetic fingers; under her long smooth strokes and soft little pats and pulls, every trace of a wrinkle disappeared for the time being. "They are only hat wrinkles, my dear. Tou are much too young for anv other. There are dozens of ladies being" treated for the same trouble. Talk about 'hold ing on by the skin of one's teeth!' whv nine out of ten women hold their na ture hats on by their eye-brows! The hat sets lightly on the head, and locks like a dream before the mirror but out on the street it is different. "The motion of walking tilts it a trifle to either side, or bobs it up and down with every step. Tou wrinkle up your scalp and your forehead to keep it steady. In turning a corner the wind catches the brim like a sail. Tou duck your head and "squinny" up your eyes in holding that hat on, and that's the way you got the two vertical wrinkles over your nose and the faint lines com ing at the corners of your eyes. "Men's sleek heads can be measured In outline, and the crown of the hat molded the exact shape of the head, but a woman doesn't do her hair the same way twice and a hat that fits is a mar Tel. er are of tea lines about the mouth. too. brought on by grimacing when the veil doesn't feel comfortable. If the veil sticks or gets askew the lower cheek muscles are called into play to move it over, and they crease up the flesh fright fully in the course of time. "The only thing you can do is to be as particular as possible about the fit of your hat, and make a point of massag ing your face gently every day, with a little cold cream, wiped away with a piece of soft silk or chamois, and re member that wrinkles, like the temper, must not be rubbed the wrong way." A Paris Novelty. A Paris elegante has started a new fashion which promises to achieve an immense popularity, as it is sensible as well as ornamental. She has had a tiny silver doorknocker placed on the door of every room m the house. These knockers are generally made after old Italian designs. The idea is that when any one has occasion to knock at a bedroom door it is better one should use the knocker instead of the knuckles, as the hand is apt to soil the paint. Chi cago iMews. How to Stand Properly. "I read much," says a middle-aged woman whose erect, graceful carriage, by-the-way, is noticeable, "of this, that. and the other thing that should be done in order to stand properly and Improve the figure; but I never pay any atten tion to any of the suggestions," says a writer in Harper's Bazar. I have never done but one thing in this matter. and that is to follow the advice given to me when I was a girl of sixteen by my grandmother, whose stately mien was the admiration of all her friends, and which I could not hope to better or even achieve. All that is needed, she used to tell me, In order to stand well is to keep the legs straight. Notice yourself a half dozen times during the day, and you will see how useful is this advice. Con stantly the knees are too much bent. The figure sags in consequence, and its lines of elegance are lost. Straighten the knees every time you think of it. and the rest of the figure falls naturally in the proper" position." Will Visit in New York. The "Fire-Laddie Princess," so they say, is coming to New Tork this winter. She is really a princess, being M;ie, wife of Prince Waldemar of Denmark. She is a great granddaughter of King Louis Philippe and came very near be ing a queen herself. Just after she was married the Bulgarians invited her hus band to come and be king. He wasn't looking for trouble so he declined with thanks, says a writer in the Sun. Nobody else seeming to be in need of a king and a queen lust then, Princess Marie began to hunt for something els? to occupy her. Her mother-in-law ami sisters-in-law were already honorable colonels of the all available regiments, STYLISH GRAY HAT. ' s:s lt i-Jvr-.v v Large gray and white felt hat, made and trimmed with two large gray plumes. so military affarrs were not especially available to the new princess. Chance was good to her, however, and threw in her way a stray book describing fire- ngnting as it is practised in New Tork. That settled it. Princess Marie trav eled incognito to Berlin, Paris and Lon don hunting for Yankee fire-fighting machinery. The more she saw of engine house heroes the more she pitied her mother-in-law for being only the hon orable colonel of a regiment. She her self decided to be part and parcel of the Copenhagen fire department ind she did not have to ask any Uncle Cro ker to let her in, either. She set herself at work in right royal earnest, Just as a princess should, to supply Copenhagen with as near an ap proach to the Yankee ideal of a fira department as she could manage. Then she attended drills and followed the fire engines. King Father-in-daw vetoed the drills, at any rate, those of the common or garden variety. But when it came to parades, he could not keep the Fire- Laddie Princess, as she was promptly nicknamed, from being the leading fig ure. jNeitner can he keep her from go ing to fires. He has protested. So has Prince Waldemar, who doesn't seem to care any more tor running to fires than for ruling Bulgaria. In spite of their protests, the Fire Laddie Princess seems to be informed of a fire as soon as It breaks out. If she is at her castle outside of the city she gallops in on horseback. If she is in town she takes a public cab. When she goes on horseback she keeps her mount until the fire is out, taking huge delignt in galloping back and forth. carrying orders from the chief to the men. Of course, the real fire laddies, as In duty pound, like their special princess. They also like the box of cigars which she always orders sent to the engine house when the fire Is over. She is said to be a fine looking wo man, slight but strong. New Tork'3 firemen will have a chance to form their own opinion however, if present reports be true. Their engine houses are the Tankee mecca for the Fire-Laddie Princess. A Noted Huntress. LADY DIXIE REPENTS. Women do not seem likely to encroach On at least one of man's pleasures, that of hunting. The most celebrated shot among English women has abandoned hunting entirely and published a pamph let on ' Tne Horrors or Sport. She knows what she is talking about. Her husband was an ardent hunter, but she was such an enthusiast that his shooting preserves did not satisfy her and she would rent a Scottish moor or of interlaced folds of felt and velvet, deer forest for her own use. She was called by her friends the female Nimrod and her house was full of trophies of her skill. Now she has taken up her pen to decry her old weapon, the gun, says a writer in the Sun. Lady Florence Dixie Is this reformed Nimrod. She has killed lions in Africa, gazelles in Arabia, bears in the Rockies. With her brother. Lord James Douglas, she took a Journey through Patagonia. A good many years ago another brother. Lord Francis Douglas, lost his life in the Alps. This intrepid woman later climbed the very peak in whose ascent he was killed. She says that few men have done "a tithe of the hunting I have done both at home and in for eign lands;" so that her renunciation of the sport seems to mean that here, at any rate, women are not going to, con test with men for privileges. She says: "Many a keen sportsman will acknowl edge that a feeling of self-reproach has at times come over him as he has stood by the dying victim of his skill. I know that it has confronted me many and many a time. j. nave Dent over my taiien game ana seen tne beautiful eve or tne aeer grow aim. 1 nave ended with the sharp, yet merciful knife, the dying sufferings of creatures that had never harmed me. I, too, have witnessed the angry, defiant glare of the wild beast fading sight as death deprived him of the power to wreak his vengeance on the human being that had taken his free life. The memory of those scenes brines no pleasure to my mind. On the con trary, it haunts me with a cruel re proach, and I fain would that I had never done those deeds of skill and cruelty." The Vanity of Man. WHY WOMEN LIVE LONGER THAN MEN. When the temperature rises during- the summer season and the mercury seems bound to boil over the top of the tube, men are compelled to acknowl edge that woman, in spite of her much criticised method of dress, teaches us a valuable lesson upon this point. Look at woman in hot weather; no matter how hot it may be she looks cool. Al though woman understands the art of never looking the way she feels, it must be acknowledged that she really is cool. Man, on the other hand, looks like a boiled lobster as soon as the thermome ter chases upward a few points. Man, with his underwear, stiff-front shirt, waistcoat and coat, feels the way he looks sticky, nasty, uncomfortable and hot. Last season the "shirtwaist man'' made his appearance; then it was hop ed that this year this method of dress would become fashionable. However, from present indications we will be compelled to suffer as heretofore, says a writer in the Sunday Chronicle. Light, airy clothes are not only more comfortable, but greatly improve the general health. Woman suffers less from colds, etc., than man. The per centage of women who contract con sumption is far less than that of men. Women are physically superior to men In every respect. Statistics show that women outlive men. There is little doubt that woman's superior vitality is due as much to her sensible method of dress as anything else. As little child ren they are dressed lighter than their brothers, and as years roll on man de teriorates more and more. I firmly be lieve that vanity alone prevents man from wearing light clothes. The truth is that he is ashamed to shed his pads. After being broad shouldered all winter it is rather embarrassing to appear in a negligee shirt minus pads. Shroulder padding has become such a universal practice that a well-built athlete with 19 or 20 inch width of shoulders has to pad in self-defense. Fads and Fancies. The newest hat pins include unusual ly large openwork balls, topped with a Jewel. Pajamas in fancy and figured nain sook are among the imported novelties. In some of the patterns the figures are of silk. Some smart shirt waists In shep herd's plaid, with black silk collar and cuffs, are seen, and also Very pretty ef fects In gray and white, gray and black and red and white. Dark blue spangled net is shown made over silk of the same color, but It is not likely that this shade will be much favored for evening. Black chif fon beautifully appliqued with gold sequins and green silk floss makes up handsomely. Colonial gray is the newest of the new tints of this very fashionable color. It is not so becoming as it is novel, for there is not a hint of either rose, cream or fawn in the shade. Geranium. Turk ish and flamingo reds are severally used, among other colors employed, to relieve gowns for the early autumn, made wholly of colonial gray. Scratch felt is the name given to some of the new effects in beaver, and angora represents ordinary felt overlaid with raw silk veiled in maline. New garni tures for millinery include white lace appliqued with velvet figures ana cream Venetian lace combined with white and black taffeta. White or cream Irish crochet lace is another nov elty that will be used extensively on evening and theater hats. Pale pink panne velvet is the mate rial made up into a smart stock. Com bined with this Is a small turn-over of white silk stitched with pink, a simple turn-over finishing the front of the stock, and with two stolelike tabs car ried down the center of the front for an inch or so. On the lower part of the stock the velvet is plaited and carried to the front, where there is a four-in- hand knot and broad ends. A King Edward stock is now shown for women. It is made of peau de soie In delicate hues. One of pink has a plain stock of pink silk, finished with a turn over of the same color. The King Ed ward scarf is already tied in a bow with short loops and long ends, but diagonally at the bottom. Above the bow eight white crocheted buttons have been placed in a double vertical row, the collar fastening in the back. Prettv gowns for children made to wear with guimpes have, some of them. regular little short waists and others stalght bands around the top and over the arms, and all hand work. One gown of an imported model Is made with a short-waisted body with narrow bands over the shoulders. It Is of a plain blue wash material, the skirt finished with a few tucks, and the only trimming on the waist is a spray of flowers em broidered across the front. Taffeta is used in some of the newest boas. One is described as being made of two . strips, each four yards long, twelve Inches wide and fringed all around to the depth of a little more than an Inch and is gathered twice through the middle. One strip is black and one white and the two are sewed on a foundation of an inch-wide black taffeta ribbon, twenty inches long. Long ends are made of accordion-plaited white moussellne de soie ruffled with inch-wide black chantilly edge. There is more and more attempt at wearing smart gowns and evening gowns to the theater, but the difficulty has been to make gowns which were distinctly evening gowns and yet suit able to wear with hats to public res taurants for dinner and to a big play house to whiph the pub'ie is admitted. Some of the smart English women how in this country have solved the ploblem by wearing evening blouses, low cut, but with a big boa covering the neck. They are quite suitable to be worn at dinner with the hats, which are re moved later at the theater. The smart est American women have also adopted this custom. Although many of our modes tend toward 'simplicity, never was more at tention paid to detail, and what simplic ity there is would seem to be due' to art. Look at the chiffon dresses and the wonderful colors which are set one over the other, such as soft mauve over pale rose color, veiled with white and made over white silk. The effect is beautiful, but certainly most studied. The constant use of this soft material leads to all the tuckings and gather ings now so much In vogue and it lends itself to the fichu draperies, the ar rangement of which is a subtle art, compassed by those who know best how to use their fingers to advantage. All such dresses have a narrow band for waist belts, drawn down in the front. Chicago News. Table and Kitchen. Conducted by Lida Ames WilliS, Mar quette building.

Of all forms of meat, fish seems best adaoted to a. salad in SDite of the dodu- uarity of the chicken in combination with salad materials. The chicken calls for mayonnaise dress insr and would lose much of its savori- ness and mauancv if dressed only with oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. On the other hand the daintiest fish salad is quite complete when served in this sweet simplicity of manner, although it is just as acceptable to many wun tne ricner dressing. CELERY AND CABBAGE WITH SAL ADS OF FISH. Whv so manv cooks and caterers will insist on reinforcing the fish salads with these two vegetables is a mvsterv. Cel ery and cabbage are recognized associates or tne oyster, out even tnis Divaive, wnen served in a salad, should not be com bined with these vegetables in the same aisn. The lobster, crab and shrimp certainly are not improved by their close associa tion and the salad maker, striving to better, often mars what is well. VEGETABLES WITH FISH SALADS. Potatoes may be used in combination with almost any fish except shellfish. making salads, as tney belong to tne nsn course. Olives, green peppers, radishes, cucum bers, gherkins and capers are used to earnish crab, lobster and shrimp salads, while the faint suspicion of onions im proves these salads if not too boldly im parted, a sngnt ruDomg 01 tne uowi in which the salad is mixed is the French TTiRthrMl while the Snanish or Italian cook will rub a crust of bread with garlic and toss it in witn tne contents ot tne oowi removinsr before serving. Onion salt is new seasoning now on the market and is much more convenient for the use than the fresh vegetable or even the bottled onion essence obtainable. Iuts and oranees mixed with shrimps form a very delicious salad and not so indieestible as one imagines. The nuts acting as a digest to the shrimp meat and the orange iuice. which should be tart, moistening the dry meat and exert- insr a solvent action imon tne miner ncn ana nutritive elements in tne nuts, snts lish walnuts are usually employed. LOBSTER SALAD. This is the fish salad par excellence H.nd it will admit of elaborate deco ration in which the shell, fan or tail and the long, slender claws play a very or namental part, also the coral of the lob ster, hard boiled eggs, stufreu oaves, ca pers. etc. The ettect obtained Is most uleasing to the eve as well as the taste Almost anything may be used to gar nish a fish salad and the success depends upon the taste and judgment ot the dec orator. Hard boiled eggs are in order onlv when mayonnaise dressing is used. With the French dressing let the gar nishment be as simple as possible. Also when a French dressing is used let it stand, after mixing with the fish, for some little time in a cold place to mari nade well. A atercress, crisp and coos, is the most effective garnish for fish salad and their peppery and pungent flavor la the neeatul stimuient to aia digestion. OYSTER SALADS. Wflsh two heaxls of white crisn celery. cutting off the leaves and reserving the youngest and tenderest for garnishing edge of salad dish. Put the celery stalks in a saucepan with their bulk in tender white cabbage cut in strips. Cover with boiling salted water and cook five min utes. Then drain in a colander and mince fine and before entirely cold mari nade with a little ou ana vmesar, ana then chill. Strain the liquor from twenty-five large oysters; put it into a saucepan and let come to boiling point, skim at once: add a little salt, if oysters are fresh, a dozen bruised peppercorns, two tablesspoonf uls of vinegar and then the oysters and heat until the gills ot tne oysters cun; arain them and set on the ice to chill. When ready to serve arrange the chopped celery and cabbage on a dish, finish with a border of cress and pale green celery tips, with a few slices of beets cut into fancy shapes to give color. Place the oysters together close on top of the bed of celery and cabbage, arrang ing them in circles. Cover all but the outer circle of the oysters with mayon naise, sprinkle over It a little minced capers and serve. WALDORF SARDINE SALAD. Cover two dozen sardines with vinegar and let stand for half an hour; then skin them carefully and again lav them in vin egar for a few minutes. Drain and ar range them around a dish, three in a. group with a sprig of cress and quarter of lemon in between each group. Chop fine a medium sized Bermuda onion and a cucumber. Stone several olives, chop and mix with the onion and cucumber. Season with salt and place in a pyramid in center of the dish. Put three tablespoonfuls of salad oil in a bowl with half a teaspoonful salt and dash of cayenne: add the strained juice of two lemons and beat the mixture un til thick and creamy. Pour over the veg etables and serve at once. MACKEREL SALAD. This makes a nice salad for Friday luncheon. Freshen and boil a salt mack erel until tender, ten minutes to each pound. Then drain, skin and pick the meat from the bones and mix with a third the quality of cold boiled potatoes cut into dice. Moisten with French dressing and garnish the dish with a border of cress and hard boiled eggs cut into rings. If fresh mackerel is UBed garnish with lettuce, spiced muscles or oysters and remoulade sauce. REMOULADE SAUCE. This is a salad sauce for those who do not like the raw egg in the dressing. Cse the yolks of the hard boiled egits instead of raw. Following instructions for making mayonnaise. The eggs must be boiled at least twenty minutes and forty is better, as thev must be dry and pow dery and rubbed to a perfectly smooth paste with the oil. The name remoulade comes from remoudre, to grind, and re fers to the grinding of the hard-boiled yolk to a fine powder. CODFISH SALAD. This la a nice fall or winter salad. Pull off in narrow strips a pound of old-fash ioned salt codnsn. soaK over nignt in cold or lukewarm water. In the morning squeeze out all tne waier uy puning nsn in a min ciotn. rui nnu pduixnn and cover with cold water ana let it boil gently for twenty minutes. Then drain and again squeeze dry.

Small fish like Drawns. shrimps, sar dines, anchovies and clams, oysters, oys ter crabs, spiced muscles, etc.. are used a great deal to decorate fish salads. Inquiries Answered. tw T.. A.
