Tomor row 11' 75 ?' ? ? ?V'.ef/sOs '? iv V#V Tailored frocks* of satin are the rage, and no tr<~re satisfactory although some what expensive, tailored frock could be devised for spring than one of smooth, firm satin. The opalep-ent blouse is one of the newest and best of the season's fashions. Chiffon, gause. marquisette and silk mus lin are the materials used to develop an opalescent blouse. ? .r Velvet bags are framed in gold or sil ver. Thejr are variously shaped, but all are suspended from the arm by heavy eflken cords and tassels. Some are elab orately beaded. PRETTY CASHMERE FROCK. A pretty and becoming design for a simple cashmere toilet is given today. The bodice lines of this gown are noticeably pretty. The effect of the bretelles of velvet which narrow toward the Waist line is very graceful, while the slightly old fashioned effect which this might produce is eliminated, and the modish line retained by the placing of the belt, between these bretelles, slightly higher than that at the sides and back. Embroidered net and silk cord and velvet help to trim the bodice and simple skirt. This latter has a broad front breadth which, owing to the stitching at the seams, is given the effect of a panel. PRETTY STYLES IN HOMEMADE SHADES In this day of wonderful glass shades, constructed out of broken bits of colored glass or mosaics of colored crystals. It sounds rather old-fashioned to recom mend handmade lamp shades. Yet there are many of the latter in new and novel from that can be made without much expense and which will meet with ap proval. Large lamp shades are not advisable. The fashion of the day calls for g'ass in some form, as soon as the lamp assumes robust proportions. It is the little lamps and the candles that call for these at tractive shades. Some years ago there came an agree able method of making a lamp shade from magazine pictures of beautiful women. These were cut out and pasted on transparent rice paper and paneled with strips of gold braid or paper. This was repeated at each edge of the finish. The best kn?.wn of the actresses are usually chosen for these lamp shades, but if preferred one can use well known authors. This choice - is especially good for a lamp to be used on a desk or in a library. ' . It would be very nice to get old pic tures of the Bronte sisters, of Jane Aus ten. of Fanny Burney, of George Eliot and of Mrs. Norton, the heroine of "Diana of the Crossways." Another way of making these shades is to cut out large flowers from scarlet and black paper, 'paste them on trans parent white paper, and passepartout the edges with black, and run strips of black between each two flowers. More durable shades are made from stringing together crystal beads on thin silver wire. If one has any ingenuity at such things the beads can be used to form designs. If not, a straight up and down effect can be chosen, each string being a different color from Its neighbor. A good many white ones should be used to give a chance for the light to get j through. J Paper and String. In almost every home time and money might be saved by stocking up in little conveniences. _ ? First of all, invest in wrapping paper of different sorts and also in paper bags of various sizes. It Is all. well to smooth out the paper that comes around store packages, but have yeu never noticed that when you want to wrap a parcel you never can find a piece of that carefully saved paper which is about the proper size and weight? If you want a piece of tissue paper you have to scurry all over the house, and at last steal a piece from one of your hat boxes In all probability. Why not buy some tissue paper and some medium-weight wrapping paper and some heavy-weight wrapping paper? You can get a great supply of all three for $1, and you will have the satisfaction'of always having fresh paper of the right sort at hand when you need it. And your im promptu packages won't have such a di lapidated appearance. And after the paper buy two balls of string?one a ball of light-weight white string and the other of the stout, strong, grayish cord with which big packages are tied. You won't need to spend precious minutes untangling odd lengths of string and windii\g them on a ball. They al ways are too short or too long when you go to use them. Buy two whole balls of string. It pays. Rainy-Day Outfit. A pair of knickerbockers to save her petticoats is one of the most sensible in vestments of the girl who goes out in the rain. They are worn with warm woolen stockings or high leggins, and are much better than draggled skirts. Rubbers and high shoes, or, at any rate, high and preferably stormproof shoes, attend each rainy-day walk of the well dressed girl who does not trifle with low shoes and gaiters in the wet. Instead of furs, the fitted mufflers of knitted silk and wool or cotton, clasping snugly around the throat, are suitable for wet days. They are washable, so that white ones can always be kept hnowy. | Knitted waistcoats are almost a neces sity. to be slipped on under the thin raincoat. A new rainy-day hat has appeared that should prove useful to the girl whose hair hangs limp and straight In the rain. It is a small and trim toque, trimmed with wings and fitted in front with a be-! witching little false curly "bang." One must, of course, purchase a hat "banged" to match one's hair. The bangs are put on sparsely enough to suggest nature and not the hair emporium. Buttons are in decided favor as trim ming. Not only are they used on blouses, skirts and wraps, but they an>. exploited on hats. Household Linens. If you are a housekeeper constantly on the alert for holes In the linen you should make a business of inspecting the contents of your linen shelves at stated times. ? This will not be so frequently neces sary if you can give ten minutes a week to a casual glance at the linen actually in use. When you are stripping the bed to change the sheets look over these for possible tears. Many a sheet has the hem or selvage whipped into tatters on the" line, while the rest of the material is unbroken, and sometimes these accidents have been overlooked by the laundress and are only discovered after the sheet is in use. Mend It before it goes into the wash again, *fcr the second time it will come out in far worse condition. While the life of linen may be much prolonged by careful mending, there comes a point where stitches and darn ing are thrown away. When the linen gets to a point where it is worn so thin that the thread used in repairing breaks away almost at once, or at best after a Single washing, it is waste of lime and labor to go on with the work. Then is the time to look over the wornout pieces and see what other possibility of usefufciess they possess. Every large piece of linen is likely to give away in one place more than an other. The tablecloth wears first along the edge of the table and in the places which, having been most soiled, have re quired most rubbing in the wash. Often a cloth will be in holes in some spots while other portions pt it are com paratively good. Such unworn portions should be cut out with care and converted into other useful articles?napkins or bibs for the children, large doilies in which to wrap baked potatoes or warm bread for the table, cloths in which to boil fish or to use for putting about salad when this has been washed and picked over and Is to be put In the icebox until it is time to prepare it for the table. There is no end to the services which can be found for soft old linen. Those i pieces which are frayed out too much fbr active use are a boon to hospitals or to other sick. I : : Gains 30 Powids !

Buying a Trunk. If one is fortunate enough to be able to flit south for the winter and finds that the good old trunk is becoming: unlfust worthy from sundry falls and knocks, a stout, new trunk Is the first considera tion. There are trunks and trunks; and it is best when buying one to take into con , sideration the use it is to be put to and the place in one's room it may be con ' signed to n^hen one reaches one's desti nation. The pet trunk displayed in a shop de i voted wholly to trunks and leather trav eling goods is a decided innovation. It is twenty inches square and fifty Inches high and is a combination of closet, chif fonier, hat box, shoe box. everything. It is arranged that when a traveler reaches his or her destination there is no 1 need for unpacking. Dresses or trous ers. as the case may be. are hung ex actly as they would be in the closet at home, and all the little accessories of the toilet are in the drawers. Therefore the owner of this trunk need not worry about having things pressed if they are in proper condition at the start of the jour ney. Of a material known as vulcanized pa pier mache, it is impervious to water and the owner need not worry if she thinks a careless expressman has left it out in the rain. The luxurious trunks of these days are built to carry everything from a paper of pins to golf sticks or a bail gown, and instead of digging to the bottom a par ticular article will be found in its own little properly labeled compartment. Very convenient things these are, es peciajly the ones which hold all a ward robe could possibly hold and then slide neatly under the bed, and'after their dis appearance are known as "bed boxes," and1 are so arranged that they may be twirled around on ball bearing castors when pulled out, thus making it easy to get at the other side. A little questioning of the salespeople and a little care in the selection will bring forth a trunk which is warranted to satisfy the most fastidious. A grape basket for the clothes pins, with a wire hook fastened to the handle, will save much time when hanging out clothes, as it may be ptlshed along the line and will always be handy.
