A purchase in a German tobacco shop entitles you to one telephone call. WALKING SUIT. The smart tailored suits of the season are noticeable for their simplicity of line anil scarcity of trimming'. The model of myrtle green panama shown above is an excellent type of the latest cut. The coat retains the high waist line, is long and clinging and worn over a princess gown with skirt de void of trimming. Revers and buttons are of black taffeta. The hat worn with this is of hair braid fn' myrtle green, with a soft puffing of green chiffon around the crown and a novelty ornament of jet holding erect two black tips at thfe side. PREVENTING WRINKLES AT CORNERS OF THE EYES Daily Massage With a Nourishing Lotion Will Keep Lines From Settling in Flesh Sur rounding the Eyes. That part of the face about the eyes requires especial attention to ward off an appearance of old ape. and I would like to impress young girls with the impor tance of daily massape about the eye corners, for such treatment would tend to prevent that network of tiny lines that are so apparent in a strong light and make one seem hagpard. The least de fect in the sight renders these lines more conspicuous, for such trouble makes an unconscious rigidity of the muscles near the lids, which develops pronounced wrinkles. It would be excellent if a girl would devote about five minutes to the care of her eyes every night. Let her dip a finger into cold cream after the face has heen washed and rub this with a gentle, rotary motion all over tlie cheek, bone, beginning just in front of the temple and working slowly down over the bone be neath the eye. At no time may the lin gers be more than half an inch below the line of the lower lid. Such treat ment as this will keep the tissues of that section constantly nourished and the skin soft at a. time when most women begin to look drawn there. Treatment for Puffiness. Pufliness under the eyes, which is most disfiguring, sometimes is merely from fatigue, although not uncommonly it in dicates internal trouble. In the -former case rest will restore the normal condi tion. As soon as any swelling becomes evident a person should lie down in a PLAIN EMBROIDERED . LINGERIE PATTERNS Pretty hand-embroidered underwear ev ery girl may possess this year, because the work is not too elaborate for an amateur, and if th? material is bought, stamped and the cotton with which to work the design is purchased a skein at a time any garment, even a nightgown, will not be costly. And if a girl has enougli money she can buy a number of pieces bearing the same pattern, and so have her lingerie "'match" throughout. One of the simplest and most effective designs for this kind of ornamentation is French polka dots. These are spots about the size of a pea and are stamped on all the ruffles, which are always scalloped, the edge done In buttonhole stitch. Decorated in this way was one of the prettiest nightgowns recently imported. The fabric from which it was made was lawn, the front full, hanging from a low neck. There was a full width and a half for the front and a width for the back. In the back was a yoke three inches deep, attached to the lower with extreme ly narrow beading. . The sleeves were three-quarter length and flowing: they also were put irito the gown with bead ing- The only ornamentation was clots and a shallow scallop that went around lhe edge of the neck and the sleeves. I An inch from the scallops at the neck were eyelets, through which narrow rib bons wfre run. Such a model may easily be duplicated for small expense. There Is really no end to pretty trim ming that may go into such lingerie if jirl is Interested and has skill in making decorations, for if she can draw her own patterns she can have distinction and character in all the pieces. Butterflies work in charmingly, especially when a punch is used to give an open-work effect to the wings. Trailing vines are effective, pretty and easily adapted to curves or straight lines. When one cannot draw individuality of pattern may be secured by hav'ng the material stamped to order. For this pro ! c?ss the garment should not be out, as straight widths are required for the stamper to work upon. A girl who has done no fancy work will usually find that, after a small amount of experience, she can embroider blouses for herself that would cost fabulous prices bought ready made. darkened room. By the bed or couch there may be a basin of hot water, and two cloths are required. One of these, hot and wet. is kept constantly oyer the eyes. A rubber bap: is not a substitute in this case, for it will not adhere to the skin. The cloths must be kept as hot as the skin can endure without smarting, and they should be kept on for fifteen minutes. In ordinary cases a further rest of half an hour will complete the cure, but some times the application of a cream is bene ficial after the final cloth has been re moved. This lotion should be gently massaged into the flesh. An excellent lo tion for this treatment is made from ten grams each of lanoline and vaseline, five grams of sweet almond oil and three grams of sulphate of aluminum. To pre pare. melt the lanoline in a cup set into hot water, adding "the almond oil as soon as the former is soft. Remove from heat and beat in the sulphate before the cream hardens. This is rubbed in with an even, gentle stroking that will take five min utes. After that, any superfluous amount is wiped off. To Reduce Swollen Lids. Swollen lids usually yield to the same treatment as that given for puffiness un der the eyes, which includes an astrineent that is soothing. fhe formula for this consists of five grains each of powdered alum and sulphate of zinc in a gill of distilled water. It is bottled and shaken until the powders are dissolved, then fil tered through coarse brown paper, i P.oiled water may take the place of fil I tered. To use. the lotion is poured on a 'soft cloth and the eyes are mopped. FASHIONS AND FADS. The demand for embroidered and braid ed net as a trimming has resulted in its being produced at a price that makes It a waste of time to copy at home unless one has nothing else to occupy leisure hours. Brussels net, two inches wide, can be bought for 75 cents a yard; filet net, two and one-half inches wide, braided with soutache, at $1.50 a yard. Brussels net. wider, in black, beautiful ly'embroidered, is only $1 a yard, and a narrower filet net, prettily braided, can be bought for 75 cents a yard. Then, if one wishes, motifs ready for applying to the net can be secured, there by lessening the work, supposing It is pre ferred to make the training by hand. These come at all prices, from ? cents for very small ones to 25 cents for those measuring four Inches in length. MOLASSES KISSES. Make molasses candy by boiling to gether two cupfuls of molasses, one cup ful of white sugar, three-quart-ers of a cupful of water, a rounded tablespoonful of butter and a scant half teaspoonful of cream of tartar. As soon as ihis begins to boil cover with a tin lid, which keeps in the stem and washes the candy from the sides of the pan. When the candy has been cooked long enough, so that a little dropped in cold water may he rolled 4nto a ball of Jellylike consistency be tween the fingers, take from the Are and pour on o'.Jed marble or a buttered plat ter. When cool enough to handle get the mass Into good shape, hold over the stove and pull briskly for a few moments. The heat and the stretching will whiten it in a short time. When light colored enough divide In two parts, place on a spghtly floured board, stretch it out Into long, narrow shapes, about half an inch thick. Have ready some French fond ant. knead until soft and creamy and work into it a dozen almonds chopped rather tine. Place this fondant on top one cake of the taffy, then cover with the remainder of the taffy, thus having the fondant between the layers of taffy. Press the* layers firmly together and cut into strips half an inch wide, then with scis sors cut into kisses. m<?>?xx^w>?;">v?>?> ^ , THE OUTER A GARMENT SHOP 606 TO 614 ELEVENTH STREET Rebuilding Sale To expedite the completion of the improvements mow an prog- *""/ ress we must close out a large part of our stock immediately. f The contractors are calling for room, and we must sacrifice / profits to secure space. f We have inaugurated a series off special sales that will enable ? you to make snug savings on all off your summer outergarment needs, * Every department offers special vaflues=everything is marked at less than prevailing prices for equal qualities. of the tailored suits are marked at new prices, showing sub= r r stantial reductions.

Signal Corps Detachment Ordered to Station?Plans of Wrights and A. M. Herring. Preparations are beinj; made at Fort Myer for the resumption of aerial experi ments. which were cut short last fall by the accident to Orvllle Wright and t lie fall of the balloon tent which Injured the small dlrigibJe, the only airship at pres ent in possession of the government. Orders have been issued by the adju tant general's office for the return to Washington from Fort Wood, N. V., of the detachment of Signal Corps men who will be engaged in the active work. There have been only four men of the aerial ! corps kept at Fort Myer during the win ter as caretakers. When the detachment arrives the dirigi ble balloon will be overhauled to see whether any repairs are necessary. As so6n as acid and iron filings can be se cured for making hydrogen gas the dirigi ble will be inflated and trials made of the wireless telegraph apparatus, which has been constructed by the signal service the past winter.
