When the great ships from over the sea unload their treasures at the wharves, f emintae interest is all a-flutter for a first gUmpse into the alur lng, mysterious boxes. And ' smaU wonder that a woman loses her heart over the lovely things brought forth from the depths of the great cases, for they are wonderfully dainty when arrayed so attractively in the win dows and showcases of our smart shops. Among the novelties Just over from Paris is the tapestry work-bags, boxes and picture frames, and all manner of useful and pretty things. Of course they are expensive who ever caw a Paris novelty that was not? But the woman with clever fin gers and a little spare time never needs to be discouraged over these prices, for she knows that for a sur prisingly small sum she can copy the things displayed, with excellent re sults. Good taste in choosing mate rials and lightness of touch in sewing are all -that is necessary. In the sketch are shown a number of useful boxes which the dainty wo man loves to have about to hold her little dress accessories. TheBe little trifles of dress may be kept fresh and new looking for a much longer time if they are well cared for, and each has Its box or bag in which to be placed when not in use. Any shaped pasteboard box that one wishes, a bit of pretty tapestry or cre tonne, a piece of silk for lining, and old gold galoon for binding are the only materials needed for the most at tractive tapestry work.

It is a happy fashion that allows a woman to wear her sleeve of any length. This Is true this season. Evi dently we are not to have one rule which must not be broken. The full puff to the elbow, finished with a ruffle, seems to be the only sleeve that Is not allowable. AD other kinds are permitted. The long mousquetaire is In, fashion, but it Is a trifle second-class even in afternoon frocks. It has been modi fied to a wider shape that does not hug the arm so closely, and has more grace thwn the former pipestem. Possltiy the preferred sleeve for evenint is the one that is almost Btralgbf from shoulder to elbow, is of transparent fabric and usually differ eut from that used in the gown. Thu modified leg-o'-mutton will be highly in favor for cloth sleeves. Ther is a slight fullness at the el bow, but the sleeve Is. cut in one Ung,ih from shoulder . to wrist and not divided at the .elbow.. As yet tkeve is no evidence of the huge puff at the top attached to the long, tight cuff. Charming New Sweaters. The new sweaters are most charm ing offerings of their kind.

Instead of soap. - Boxes 'J most enjoyable results are so quick ly attained. To make any of the boxes, procure a pasteboard box of the desired shape, cut out pieces of tapestry to fit each section, being careful, to select the prettiest parts of the goods, and baste each on the box, near the edge. If the pasteboard is heavy, then it will be better to -paste the goods on near the edge, using a white, strong paste. The lining is put on in the same way. Then the gold galoon Is put on over all the edges as a finish, sewing down on each edge with very small stitches.' AU covers are overhanded on after the galoon is applied. The fancy shaped sewing box in the lower left hand corner la made of pieces of pasteboard, cut out, the low er edges smaller than the upper, and the sides are slanted. The sides are held together with narrow slips of pa per and melted gum arable. The cov er is simply a square of pasteboard, tapestry covered. The veil or glove case in the upper right hand corner is made of two box covers. In the lower right band corner is a little Jewel box, covered in the same way as the others. The little tray Is composed or a box cover with several divisions made by covering strips of cardboard with the lining material the strips just fitting in tight enough to hold in place. ...

A collar box and a little divid ed holder for side combs, shell orna ments and hairpins, are also 'Shown AU the boxes have perfumed pads un der the lining.
