they feel that shortly the autumn'days, 1

Paris Style Ideas
At the Doucet opening in Paris the
buyers were enthusiastic, especially
about the suits, which are regarded as
being the best in the city.
Long Jackets.?Many new features
were noted, including long jackets
which are rounded away from the
knees in front and grow longer toward
the back, where they reach the hem
of the skirt. A suit of velour de laine
combined with nutria has a knee
length jacket, while the akirt has
crinolino just above the knees. Belts
are not seen. Some jackcts show go
dets on the sides, and all models flare
at the hem.
Hip Fullness.?Skirts are full at the
hips, yet are drawn in at the hem,
thus produ-eing a tonneau silhouette
They are from ten to twelve inches
from the ground.
Handsome furs are used extensively
for broad bands and for collars of the
shawl variety, which stand up above
There are a few wrist jackets, but
long modeUs predominate.
Velour de Laine Much Used.?Much
velour de laine is used, ;ls well as
rough serge voloutine, dovetyn and
velvet. Among the furs are marmotte.
castor, martin, dyed rabbit and caracul.
Among the suit colors much tillc-ul
(lime coler) is seen. Other colors are
bright blue, bottle green and gray.
Crinoline Presses.?The new feature
in dresses is the modified crinoline.
Some evening gowns preserve the
straight lines, while others use crino
line and panniers.
Narrow lira id Trimming.?There is
much velour de 'laine, rough serge,
duvetyn and Scotch plaid. Some nar
row braid trimming is seen, but there
is no suggestion of militarism.
High standing collars are on some
afternoon dresses, which generally
have short sleeves and enormous sa-sh
es of bright-hucd or Scotch plaid rib
Extreme TVto k Dercoll-ete.?Evening
dresses emphasize the extreme back
decollete. Some of the models have
clinging drapery, others achieve a
slight suggestion of the crinoline by
ruches over the hips.
Chantl-11y and metal laces have been
revived, and there is much use of vel

HINTS FOR HOUSEHOLD
Oatmeal soap can be made at home
by procuring one pound of ordinary
Castile soap, half a pound of oatmeal
and a little water; stir the soap with
the water in a pan over the lire until
melted. A<ltl the oatmeal, and then,
when thoroughly mixed, turn out on
a board to cool. Divide the result into
small cakes, and after these have been
left to dry for a few days they are
ready for using.
It will be found that a tear in a
kid glove can easily be mended with
a strip of adhesive tape. Cut off a
piece suflicicritly large to cover the
damaged place. iJraw the torn edge.o
carefully together and apply the piece
of tape to the spot on the wrong side
of the glove, pressing down firmly. If
advisable to remove the patch later,
draw the tear together with a needle
and thread and replace the tape.
Knives and forks which have been
used for fish should be dipped in tea
leaves before being washed and all
smell of fish will be thus removed.
To clean carved ivory ornaments,
make a paste of sawdust slightly
moistened with water and lemon juice.
Spread the paste on the ivory and
allow it to dry thoroughly, then brush
it off carefully with a soft brush.
To peel ripe tomatoes without put
ting in hot water, press the back edtre
of the blade of the kntfe gently all
over the surface of the tomato, then
