i TW wt»e mother. If she can possibly so arrange her time, baa her ? taring dona before the sultry days of summer arrive. In these days of j inexpensive materials she should make up any number of washable frocks for her little daughters. *"“**' A easy attractive dress for wear on “best” occasions Is of butcher * Haem, the blouse and skirt being put together with stitching at the waist line. The skirt Is round with a lap seam down the left side of the front. The appearance of opening is given this seam by three crochet buttons. The same effect is reproduced at the real opening in the back. The blouse is a klmona shape, the front of it being hand worked with a daisy pattern. The neck Is round, finished with hand worked scallop. The sleeves are loose and finish half way down the forearm. For a little girl of 7 a sensible dress, permitting freedom of neck and arms on the hot days, is of ecru linen trimmed with bands of dark brown in the Oreclan key pattern.

SOME SUMMER FROCKS FOR WEE WOMEN /•HE DETROIT TIMES: Is set on the front. This has bands of the Oreclan embroidery outlining it from the shoulders. The skirt Is side pleated and goes into a belt. The blouse is klmona shaped with wide, short, kimono, sleeves. Abo.e the broad hem on the skirt the embroidery again appears, around the sleeves, and the effect of a sailor collar is given by having it about the square neck. Black and white striped lawn, trimmed with bands of red silk which in turn is dotted with white, is formed into a very pretty dress for a little girl of eight. The band is put around the blouse at the end of the yoke, at the belt and on the sleeves. The upper part of the yoke and sleeves are of klmona form, and below the silken band the blouse is fulled into a belt. Tiuy V’e of red silk are set in the shoulder seams and from the collar down into the yoke. These Vs in turn are piped withered silk and the piping on the shoulder goes on to meet the dotted silk hand which finishes the sleeve. The skirt has a box pleat in front and from this side pleats turn back ward to meet in the back. This gives the little girl s skirt the childish fullness necessary for freedom in action. quite serious, the moment you think she shows symptoms of the trouble. ft am telling you all this, my child. becau»e 1 want you to know the be ginning of this disease immediately so that you will not neglect through ignorance to send for your physician. Don't you think you had better pack up baby's belongings and come to me for a week or two. i am sure the change would do you and baby both good. Wnile J think usually home is the best place for young babies, I do not think it is well for them to be come so habituated to one abede that they cannot be happy anywhere eise. A young child is much more de pendent upon its surroundings than an adult, as it has not begun to reason and It resents any change from the things It has been used to because it must adjust itself to an entirely new set of Impressions. I have known children who were angels in their own homes who made Fill W I m everybody unhappy when they were taken out of them. This was because they had gotten used to one environ ment aud any other irritated them. Keeping a baby at home continually is apt to make them selfish and self centered. There: don't you think I have said enough, without telling j-qu that , grandmother is just hhngrv for an ti her sight of little Margaret, to make you decide that until the dan ger of contagion of measles and whooping cough is over the best place for both you and baby is with mother.
