Useful Hints to Women Who As pire to Be In the I WANT, to .talk today about some- thing which baa been distressing : me right along the way women rhoniw . their r-lothps. There are three classes of women those who dress well, those who attempt to. dress well and those who don't care how they dress. I may as well . add right here that the first and last classes compose the minority. . The majority of women attempt to dress well. "Attempt" is a good word, but there is no word strong - A PUZZLED HUSBAND. enough to describe the tortures they undergo while they are attempting It. Men at this time of the year are wont to complain that women talk of nothing but clothes (which is largely the truth at all times of the year, but particularly at this), but if men knew what women suffer in their futile attempt to make $5 do the work of $10. to make a cheap dressmaker give them the fit of a high priced artist on the avenue, to get ma terials which will last and wear and not spot and wrinkle and yet which will look airy and elegant and fluffy at the same time, to get address which looks well in the evening and yet which may be worn at an afternoon tea, to pur chase a street costume which may be used equally well for shopping or church wear, to to but, there! What's the use? The list is long enough as it Is.- ' - - ..-- .-. . -t-j , "Nonsense!" I hear a man exclaim. "The trouble is that women .are eaten up with vanity. ' Let them dress more simply." ' - : -.- Y-e-s?-. And suppose I should tell you that nine women out of ten take ;this trouble for their men and not their wo men acquaintances? . It's a fact.-nevertheless. ' . '' - f.''" But men don't know the difference. TheeiAreWtae." Don't "they?" They didn't formerly, perhaps, but they do now, you may. be sure. A girl "may be a copy of all the Christian virtues, but if she is done up in a hat and frock which have no style she will stay on the shelf all her days. and scarcely a man will even take the trouble to look at her. Of course a man doesn't know the difference ' be tween crepe de chine' and mousseline de sole;. these differences are too subtle for him; but he has a pretty accurate idea of how a dress should hang, how a girl's shoes should be built and at what angle her hat should be worn, and it is rarely that you can deceive him with any homemade substitutes for the real thing in dress. A, man may tell you he doesn t care what you have on. . Don t you believe him.. I once thrashed the matter out with a man who had given utterance to that sentiment. 'How is it, then," I demanded, "that you are never seen with any girls who are not stylish?" "I don't care to go around with them. No man does," he answered in an in jured tone. "But if you don t know anytmng about dress how can you tell?'" I re torted. : 'Oh, I just size them up at a glance. A fellow can see, he answered eva sively. And that's just the trouble. It's that ' - , ..,..,,..u.J..,..,..,..ll........iun. 1 i . t . , fe i PERSIAN PONGEE SILK WAIST. Here is a waist of palm leaf design on tan or white ground pongee... The stock collar, the straight end tie, the simple form and the beautiful fabric are Indicative of the taste of the best classes of "waist wearers. Perfect fit, rich quality anJ superior fabric are the ideas which are found, after all. to satisfy the woman of taste in the matter of waists. r . FASHION Inquisitorial glance from the men they care about that women dread. A Woman's Perplexity. I saw a rather pitiful thing the other day. A woman was buying a long coat. She was accompanied by her husband, who was taking quite an interest in the proceedings. The woman had light hair brushed back with no particular at tempt at dressing, light eyebrows and eyes of washed out blue. Her complex ion, too, was undecided, like all the rest of her. She had reached that stage in the trying on process, when she didn't know what to do, and if ever woman needed some one to advise her she was that one. Guess what she chose. A loose coat of bluish gray the most trying of shades, mind you, and the one perhaps which slanders a woman's figure more than any other. If the coat had hung entirely loose, it would not have been so bad, but it was partly belted in across the back in such a manner that several ungainly gathers spread themselves over the hips below the belt, and a few more above it gave her a grandmotherly, round shouldered appearance. In addi tion the coat cleared the ground by something like a couple of inches. She turned to her husband with a depre eating smile. "Will it do, dear? she asked. He looked at her with a puzzled ex pression. He saw that it was not as It should be, but, manlike, didn't know why. His glance Involuntarily wander ed over to where a picturesque looking woman of about his wife's age was try ing on a loose black coat of corded silk. He admired the woman and could not help wishing his wife could get herself up to look like her. But evidently she couldnt. The coat she had on was expensive, the material was of good quality yes, it must be all right. "Oh. I guess it's all right." he responded, with a show of cheer fulness. And he paid for the gar ment and gave the address to have ' it sent home. Now, can you see the sequel of that episode? I can. Every time An amateur fitter. she wears that coat she will be an eye sore to him, and he will not be able to avoid comparing her to the other wo men in their graceful, clinging Styles. Then he will slowly but surely make the discovery that she is clumsy and has a bad figure and no complexion to speak of, and all because of an ugly garment that didn't suit her and which, if you come right down to it, wouldn't have suited anybody. The pity of it was that she could have had her choice of many pretty and becoming garments for the same price, and even less, if she had only known So you see how much the choosing of a garment counts. Hints From an Expert If I were a woman with a small dress allowance, do you know what I should do? For one thing, I shouldn't attempt so much. I should have two or three gowns perfect in every detail, with the linings as they should be, with the goods cut in the proper way and trim med in the proper way. I should dress as much as possible in black and white or in pale, refined colors which do not stamp themselves in every one's mem- !f i , - mr" . - ' -' -- ll .!..... ..Mil SUMMER WALKING GOWN OF FOULARD. Do you notice that this gown is princess, and do you see that it is most beautiful in its simplicity and its perfect completion? It is an imported cos tume direct from Doueillet, Paris. Every line of it is grace and every line is perfection. Not one unnecessary stitch, yet no fault to find with one single point of its perfect design. It is a Parisian gown par excellence. The art nouveau figure in the silk, the artistic guimpe arrangement and the mediaeval undersleeve are all to be studied and, we believe, much to be copied. ory. I should have one gown for the street and one gown for . best, and I shouldn't try to make a single gown do service for both and get so shabby as to be unfit for either occasion. I should have a pair of dainty shoes for visiting or evening wear and a pair of stout, well made ones for shopping and walk ing, but I shouldn't wear out my old French heeled patent leathers-with my cotton shirt waists. If I only had enough money to have one dress, I should choose a good black or gray tai lor made and some pretty white waists. I shouldn't try to wear a thousand col ors and oblige myself to buy bats for them all. I shouldn't go in for chiffon ruffles and tulle bows and ribbons. I should have few things, but they would always be fresh and clean and in the best of order. And when I bought anything I should make sure that it was of the latest style, correct in fit and material and, above all, suitable for the occasions for which it was in tended. It is possible to be smart on a very little money, while it is sometimes im possible to be stylish on a all depends upon u,"u the good taste and common sense dis played by a woman in selecting her clothes. - ' . And now, Just to show youvwhat- I consider a pretty tailor made, look at the Gibson blouse costume in the sketch. It is of black etamine, a mate rial of which many suits are made this season. The blouse stops at the waist line in the back, but dips a trifle in front. A wide effect is given through the shoulders by the graduated plaits, which taper down into narrowness as they reach the waist line. There Is a little vest of white- moire fastening with steel buttons. Worn with hite waists and a black and white hat this Is charming. New Tork. WHAT THE FACE TELLS. The face is a good index of the state of one's physical being, and from ;t symptoms of disease can be detected almost before the patient is aware that anything serious is the matter with her. For instance, incomplete exposure of eyelids, rendering the whites of the eyes visible during sleep, is a symptom of all acute and chronic diseases of a severe type. It is also to be observed when rest is" unsound from pain. Twitching of the eyelids, associated with the oscillation of the eyeballs or squinting, heralds convulsions. Widening of the orifices of the nose, with movements of the nostrils to and fro, points to embarrassed breathing from disease of the lungs or their pleu ral investment. Contraction of the brows indicates pain in the head and sharpness in the nostrils pain in the chest. i 71 THE DISADVANTAGES OF EXTRAVAGANT-ATTIRE. Although the knowledge that they are extravagantly dressed may give to some women a certain amount of satis faction, they are at the same time sub ject to a number of small inconven iences of which their plainer dressed sisters know nothing. ' One extravagance almost Invariably leads to another, and if a woman is smartly or showily dressed she feels that everything else must be in keeping with her appearance. If she takes a short Journey by train, she is compelled te travel in Pullman trains, though she can ill afford to do so, because were she to travel second class the damage done to her dress should a laborer chance to have occu pied the seat before her would probably cost her considerably more than the amount of the extra fare. Then, again, imagine the Inconven ience of carrying a hand bag when at-' tired in an elaborate gown with a train that takes both hands and a tremen dous amount of energy to save from de struction. Either train or bag must go. If a porter happens to be near, he generally rushes forward and seizes the bag, his face beaming as he takes in at a glance the elaborate attire of the owner, and his mind reverting Instantly to the question of tips in general and the amount of the tip that he will receive for this job in particular. But the question of porters is mild in. deed compared with that of cabmen. Of course there are cabmen and cab men, but the average "cabby" takes in his fare at a glance, and woe betide the extravagantly dressed woman who at tempts to give cabby his bare fare and not a penny over. If she asks "How much?" the man is pretty nearly sure to demand more than his legal fare, and if she does not ask, but hands him up the exact amount, the result, after the anticipation of at least double fare that she has already raised in "cabby's" breast by the elaborateness of her cos tume, can better be imagined than de scribed. ' LONG SKIRTS AND DEFORMITY. The announcement is made by physi cians that girls are becoming lopsided. It is a distressing accusation, and the cause assigned is the long, trailing skirts which they are obliged to hold up out of the dust at the expense of en ergy and graceful poise. The .shoulder is twisted by the atti tude, of the arm which holds the skirt and becomes higher than the other, and the opposite hip is thrust out to pre serve equilibrium. : This is' ungraceful and, if continued for any length of time, becomes a deformity. Aside from this, congestion of the wrist results from so long holding s up the material. ' Of course the remedy Is in the wear ing of short skirts, and during their brief season of popularity there was fallingoff of complaints about aching shoulders ana urea Dacxs. It seems hardly likely, however, that short skirts will ever gain the entire approval of girls. There is something very fasci nating in the swirl of a long skirted gown as: well as the effect it has of in creasing a short person's height which makes it very hard to give up. A design for a belt has an ornament at the hack Joined to the belt by bars and links. I ELECTS m A Comfort and Convenience. ONCE USED ALWAYS APPRECIATED. Our Service 722 Van Buren Street.
