By DOROTHY DIX. The Rev. Dr. Talmage once told his congregation that nine-tenths of all divorces are due to the temptations of the summer vacation, and he warned -women not to go off on a summer vacation unless they were willing to risk losing their husbands Is Dr. Talmago right or wrong? Does the summer vacation promote domestic felicity, or Is It the first aid to the divorce court? Is a woman more sure of being In a man's thoughts when she Is so directly under his eye that It Is physically im possible to forget her. or does he think most tenderly of her when she Is far away, and her remoteness makes a trans figuring haze that magnifies her charms and conceals her faults? Should a wife. In particular, who de Elres to retain her husband's affection, give him her society In allopathic or homeopathic doses? Ttvo Views, About Husbands. This Is a problem concerning which there Is a great diversity of opinion In feminine circles. Some -women contend that, as man Is but a creature of habit and Imperfectly domesticated at best. It Is never safe to let him quit eating out of your hand, while other women hold that more love Is bored to death than Is killed In any other way. And both of these opposite theories have a certain degree of right on their side. We all admit that propinquity is the great match-maker, and If It Is so valu able In catching a man It should be equally useful In holding him. The wo men who subscribe to this belief are those who never leae their husbands for a single day, and Insist upon sharing all of their work and pleasure Theirs is the matrimonial trust spirit to estab lish such an Iron-bound monopoly over a man that It will head off all competi tion. It cannot be denied that there Is much to be said In support of this view of the situation There is nothing for keeping a man home of evenings like knowing he has to render an account of himself If he Is absent, and the fear of his wife Is the beginning of virtue In more hus bands than we wot of. Lor Can Die of Ennui. Not all of the arguments, however, are on the side of those who contend that lovo must bo alwajs a personally con ducted excursion; for If love can die of loneliness In the absence of Its beloved, it is equally susceptible to the blight ing Influence of ennui, and the deadest dead love in the world is that which has yawned Itself into the grave. In married life there can be no gain Baying the fact that the majority of peo ple quarrel because they see too much of each other, and thus get on each otn er's nerves If most couples were only married three days a week, Instead of ecven. there would be fewer divorces. The great tragedy of absence between married people Is when they must be parted for a long time. Then the Inev READERS FIND HARD PLACES IN TWO-CENT STAMP PUZZLE The Puzzle Circle is very busy. For.

J. C M, HEW LIGHT COATS FOE THE WOMAN" MOTORIST. Motor or traveling coats aro no longe. beyond the reach of even the most mod est purse. Pongee In the natural color Is the most serviceable material, with the possible exception of linen. At a house which bears a rather excep tional reputation for coats are to lhi found some bargains dear to all women's souls In these garments. Imagine a long seml-flttlng coat of fine pongee, with a sailor collar of black satin, a long satin tie, handsome buttons, well tailored, and with lines that could not be rivaled by a much more expensive coat for 20. Also linen coats In several models are Cold Storage The low, even temperature maintained protects and pre serves the Furs. Furs repaired and altered at summer prices. ftttnemefc, itable changes that are always taking place in character go on. One goes for- ,ward and one goes backward: for it rarely happens that two people who are apart keep the same step. Ufe has no bitterer moment than that which reunites many a couple after u long absence and shows them, disillusion ed to each other. If they had remained together, they would not have noticed the little changes In each other; but when they meet aftei the separation of a jear they see the difference, little weaknesses, little pecu liarities, little narrownesses, little defects that grate and that slay love. All of which goes to show that in ab sence safety lies in the golden mean, a little of it makes the heart grow fonder, but too much is fatal. Absence should be taken Intermittently and In small and broken doses. JAP KIMONO COAT IS NEWEST STYLE Made in Simple Lines of Ex pensive Materials. Now come some very fantastic Japa nese coat fashions. Their materials are expensive, It Is true, nut many of them are made on the simplest kimono lines and can be copied easily by the woman who has taste and an old kimono for model, even If she has but very little Bklll with the needle. A coat, for instance, which In chiffon can be used either as a tea gown or In satin or etamlne for afternoon or even ing wear on the street, is made In this very simple fashion. A straight length of very wide material is used. When folded in half It should fall from the shoulder as far down as the coat Is to reach. Silt Up tbe Middle. The front breadth Is slit up the middle and the silt extends a little way down the back to form the back of the neck. It can be left V shape or be rounded out In the back, according to the trimming to bo used. The selvage or outer edge of the ma terial Is turned back several times to form a cuff for the sleeve, and the two sides of the material are tacked together below the space allowed for the arm to come through. The bottom of the coat Is hemmed and can be embroidered or trimmed with one of the band embroideries. A band of em broidery or a bios band of satin can be used for the neck and the front trim ming. The coat should fasten in front with frogs of gold braid or ribbon or braid or naments. shown, some with kimono sleeves, others with plain tailored coat sleeves. One particularly good model is a lone, loose, perfectly cut, and tailored coat of Holland linen, buttoning closely with a strap at the throat, nice, deep, cozy, use ful pockets, shoulders that will lend an air of smartness to any figure, and last, but not least, priced J6.

It Is richer and Daily Fashion Talk for Herald Readers Combination Illustrated Insures Flatness Around the Hips, With Neither Lines Nor Wrinkles. It Is a Very Satisfactory Model for Every Woman. In making the dresses of the present time the main consideration is the preservation of the slender, youthful outline which fashion has decreed shall be retained. This cannot be done if the underwear is at all bulky, and it has been found that the use of the combination style of underwear is a great help in reducing the amount of material which must be covered by the outer garment. Of course, the arrival -of summer means also that sheer materials will be used to the exclusion of nearly all others, at least in all dresses except the plain tailor-made styles. This makes the demand for compact underwear insistent, and it is impossi ble to be well dressed without giving this point due consideration. Many of the newer garments are cut in a single piece, and for these there is no material quite equal to embroidered flouncing. Manufacturers are mak ing it in many different widths with the same pat tern adapted to them, and in this manner we can purchase the narrow flouncing for the corset covers which we make, while wider pieces are obtainable for the petticoats and drawers. Colored Underwear Pretty. The liking for underwear madeof colored ma terials adds a very pretty note to the outfit for sum mer wear. The dainty pink and blue and lilac flower designs which are found in organdie are often used, and the silk and cotton mixtures in delicate color ings take their turn as well. All materials, whether white or colored, are very elaborately trimmed or embroidered. The idea of flatness is always borne in mind, however, and the edgings are put on flat, and any quantity of inser tions are used. Ribbon, beading, inserted medal lions, and, of course, the loveliest of hand work are all pressed into the service of the wearer of dainty underwear. Take for example the combination shown in the accompanying illustration. It is certainly charming just as shown, made of wide flouncing, the corset cover seamed down the center of the back, to insure flatness here, and allowed a very little fullness in front. The deep yoke gives absolute plainness around the hips, and the fact that the flouncing is attached with pleats instead of gathers means that there will be no lines or wrinkles anywhere. Pattern 4914 is cut in sizes 32 to 44 inches bust measure. The above pattern can be obtained by sending 10 cents to the office of The Washington Herald.

For the moment her mother did not answer and again came the sweet little song, somewhere high up from the great elm tree just across the street, from Marion's pi azza. "What is it?" asked Marion again, as she rose from her lit tle rocking chair and went close to the piazza rail. "Why, it is the robin red breast singing to the rain," an swered her mother. "To the rain?" questioned Marion, wrinkling up her nose in a perplexed sort of way. Yes, answered her motner. And then Marion, drawing her chair up close, listened in wonderment at the wonderful story. v "You see," began her mother, "the grass and all the growing things live very close to the ground, and during long stretches of dry weather they suf- tt- ro murh frnm thirst. Cif course, you can see for yourself that they are ,it a far awav from the c!nud where the rain lives as possibly could be, and so, of course, when they wish to talk with the clouds they must do it through someone who has the power to get nearer the sky. "And so the robin does it for them," interrupted Marion. 'Yes, that is the pretty part of the story," continued her mother.

Now, up to that time, the growing things had never tallml to anvnne out- side of their own kind, but when they saw the sad look, on the little robin's face and heard him sadly say that he was very, very hungry, they just had to speak to him, and of a sudden a pretty, sweet fern bush, which Sad been chosen to do the talking, spoke p and said: "Little robin, perhaps -we may help each other."

"And you want me to get you rain!" interrupted the robin, "but how on earth can I?" he added, mystified. The little sweet fern, in spite of his suffering for lack of water, laughed merrily.

So great Is the demand for novel was of entertaining, particularly by those good patient women who plan . all sorts of functions to raise church funds, that I am confident a unique affair that was given last week In Washington will meet with both appreciation and Imitation. A Journey through Holland, Greece, Spain, and Italy was arranged by the ladles of Waugh Church, the cost of which to each voyager was 35 cents. This price Included transportation and enter tainment In each country visited, which was a remarkably low figure. Ticket holders assembled at the ap pointed hour at the church, where sight seeing cars awaited them. This trip abroad was made In automo biles, and four countries were visited In the space of three hours. The apartment of Mrs. R. H.

SKIN DISEASES OF DOGS ARE OFTEN CAUSED BY OVERFEEDING By EDWARD 9. SCHMID. Noncontagious skin diseases are usual ly caused by overfeeding and want of exercise, or. paradoxical as It may seem, by poor or unsuitable food and general neglect. The disease Is a blod complaint, resulting from the assimilative organs not fulfilling their functions. Surfeit. This may affect any part of the body: the skin is first Inflamed In patches ehowing In white dogs almost a scarlet redness through the coat: a sticky exuda tion Is given off from the skin and forms into scabs; these scabs fall off. takltit, the hair with them, leaving the skin In a red. Inflamed state. To Trent Surfeit. First give a dose of saline purgative medicine, such as Epsom salts, the dose being from one drachm to one ounce, according to the size of the dog; this medicine should be dissolved in hot water, but not given until cold. To the sore places an eczema cure should b freely applied twice or thrice a day. as it removes Irritation, which at times Is very great, and assists the healing of the part. A dose of aperient biscuits every thira day will In these cases exercise a bene ficial effect Sometimes, as an alterna tive, a little oil of tar may be appllea with a flannel. This should be repeated every day for two or three days, or until the part Is healed. Dogs affected with this complaint must be allowed variety In their diet, which should consist of flbrine biscuits, oat meal, or rice and vegetables mixed with some gravy or soup.

H. De Shields and her assistants, all of whom were gowned In the national costumes of the Nether lands. The walls were decorated with pictures of Dutch boys and girls and flags. During the refreshments of pretzels ana Iced tea the party took as Its subject of conversation the country being visited, which, with the Dutch decorations and characteristic refreshments, made the scene very real and interesting. No Consideration for Distance. Having no consideration for distance to be traversed, the tourists sped away In the big sight-seeing cars to the home of Mrs. A. H. Thompson, which, for the oc casion, was Greece. Here again suitable refreshments were served,' and the home visited was trans formed Into the country It was represent ing, the tourists entering the spirit of the artistic little country as soon as they were admlted to Mrs. Thompson's home, where Greek statues pleased the eye, and many pictures of Grecian ruins helped to carry out the Idea. From Greece the party went to Italy, represented for the day In the home ofi Mrs. Stratton, In Massachusetts avenue. " An organ grinder and monkey furnished a typical Italian entertainment, while the travelers were served with such Ital ian refreshment as spaghetti, and talked of the old and the new Italy. From Italy to Spain was but a de lightful few minutes ride, where Spanish girls gave a tambourine drill, and where olives and saltines were tendered the globe trotters. In the home of Mrs. Hardy. Souvenirs Are Given. Souvenirs of each country were given the travelers, and after the Journey was at an end they returned to America, which was represented in the church, where they had refreshments typical of America. Ice cream and cake. Here the travelers discussed at leisure the pleas ure of visiting Europe In an automobile for the sum of 35 cents. When news of this entertainment reach ed Holland, the conductors of the party received a cablegram of thanks for the compliment paid the Queen of that coun try. The touring Europe entertainment was one of the most successful and unique ever glen In Washington, and the ladles of Waugh Church declare that they could have had as many to Join the party as they could have furnished transpor tation for had they advertised the affair beyond their own church circle. It is certain that they might have made a. larger charge for so great a variety of - - - -- --- .i i.. ikr entertainment as they furnished without hearing any mumbling from the travel ers.
