There Is no feeling quite Ilka mol-de-mer,

it Is usually cut shorter than the ordi

copied from any model sent her, for al
most cost price. Ot course every one
knows the enormous prices one has to
pay in the department stores for hand
or even machine-made underwear. This

Deslgnors of hats, gowns, furs and
Jewels did their best to show what could

was crowded with an appreciative public.
A platform at tho end of tho room was
made to reBcmblo a miniature stage, with
artistic hangings of dark blue against
which the models showed to advantage,

There wero nearly 100 of these models
and many more than that number of cos
tumes shown. Tho street costumos
showed a military tendency and fur was
used lavishly, but beyond the fact that
each costume was nn Individual creation
there was nothing to point to any radical
departure from the present styles.
At present this Is a difficult thing to do,
for there was never a time when liberty
In the matter of wearing apparel had so
nearly reached license.

tan aeaiers wero organizes ana an ar
rangement made with certain wholesata
dealers to handle their catch each day.
The newspaper undertook to advertise
the matter widely enough to prove
whether or not sufficient demand could
bo oreated to mako such a plan pay.
As a result, tho wholo catch of these
fish dealors was sold each day at five
cents a pound. Tons of wholesome and
choap food were thus utilized Instead ot
being dumped oft tho dock. And people
to whom tho price of a meal was a great
consideration learned that fish was good
any day In tho week, and that It made
Just as satisfactory a meat aa did meat
at many times the price.
It wns only an experiment to test tho
public willingness to co-operate In utiliz
ing our Inexhaustible supply of fish. Aa
such. It was a success.
Better than that, It has shown to deal
ors and oonsumors allko ono sonslblo and
practical way to reduce tho cost of living,
and It remains to bo proved whether or
not tho people of our coast cities will
take the hint and use fish as It is used
in European countries.
It all lies In tho hands of tho house
wife. It she continues to regard fish aa
something to bo cither fried, boiled or
baked, and scorns savory and Interesting
sauces, sho will probably have some trou
ble to Induce her family to eat it oven
once a week. The different varieties of
fish have dcllcato and distinctive flavors
of their own; but unless theso flavors
are Judiciously brought out and bolstored
up In tho preparation they are Insipid to
a dogrco compared with that of meat.
But if the housewifo will tako tho trou
ble to learn how flsh ls cooked In Franco
or In Italy, tho gamo of reducing hor
weekly bills Is In her own hands. If tho
flsh dealers dovotop sufficient acumen to
prepare and preserve flsh ns thoy do In
Great Britain, Holland and Germany, tho
task of the housewifo will bo much sim
plified and their market will bo Increased.
Our attention has been called to this
enormous nnd easily available food sup
ply. That It Ib not now cheap Is our own
fnult. W can mako It bo simply by us
ing enough of It to bring tho prlco down.
The Now York experiment has shown
that this can bo dono and how. It re
mains to bo soen whether or not wo aro
wise enough to act upon the suggestion.

If You Are a Brunette
A dark complexion requires the careful
study of its possessor, if It ls to do hor
Justice. She can wear a great vnriety
of colors If, and only If, sho 'will find
out what particular shades of them suit
For Instance, most shades of red look
well upon her, many blues, and, most
becoming of all, rose-pink of a soft tone.
Brown Is better than ecru, but it has
not sufficient high lights, unless whtto
Is Introduced in the form Qf accessories.
There aro somo tones of white also
that aro eminently suitable. They should
be tried on first before docldtng as the
wrong white Is moro than trying.
Tho nnrrow band of black velvet round
the throat, so beloved ctf our grand
mothers, Is a cunning wee touch that
helps the girl of olive complexion to wear
many a color that otherwise might bo
doubtful In her case.
Remember that a tinge of color In tho
cheeks will often decide whether or not
a certain color suits you. Many darlc
glrla have no color, and they need to
be cautious in their use ot shades that
demand this natural warmth of hue.
