Frequently in the case of a dance dress this train will he of some diaphanous material, really scarcely more than a sash end, but <m# distinctly trailing The advent of the de tached train and its attendant manipula tions is of far "greater import than e^ en its designers conjectured It combines th? essentials of grace and comfort, an alliance not always to be met with in so strikingly smart a mode. To run from the sublime to the severely practical, the early presence of many dainty little tub frocks engenders the re flection of how popular are the washing materials of the moment. Following the success of cambric, plain and striped ginghams. < omes a washing Japanese crepe a charming material, in a very long choice of delightful colors Akin to everything else at the moment, the sim pler the tub frook the more aUtirlnj* it is. Perfectly delicious and extraordinarily telling touches are imparted, perhaps, by two large, self-colored buttons and some quaint buckle at the waist in front One model was fashioned of the above men tlone^i crepe in a sweet pansy shade of mauve, and was ornamented in a d:agonal line from the right shoulder to the hem of the skirt at the left side, with de tached groups of small, self-colored but tons and mock loops, the throat finishing, as do so many of these dresses, with a collar of broderie Anglalse. In this particular instance the collar took a square shape and was caught down in front with two little straps of black rihhon velvet. Black patent leather belts also figure conspicuously in connec tion with ihese washing frocks when the waist is any way placed at a belt-wear ing level; otherwise a heavy piping is used, or the favorite black velvet with broad, flat bow in front A contrasting torn h of this description that can be easily removed when the gown requires to be passed through the laundress' hands is reasonable enough, but there is an entirely incongruous note struck by the introduction of satin pipings and the like in the so-called tub frock, the latter at once losing its "raison d etre" under such treatment. Apropos of cool summer possessions, many alluring and dainty fancies are be ing worked out in linen and in coat and skirt style. Finely braided in self tones, the coats either rather long and clearly defining the figure or hip length and cut much stralghter, the linen suit is pre pared to take its place as before. A rose colored linen suit is so chic, made very simple, with a little coat that fastens close up to the neck, beneath a dainty lingerie collar, the fronts from there falling apart. Or a white linen is rendered of quite particular cachet by a collar of rose-colored linen and small round rose-colored buttons, like little cherries. The Color Scheme. It is all very well to talk about color a? the keynote of a successful appearance, but the large majority of women are not going to dress themselves In any shade no matter how becoming it may be?If It isn't listed high among fashion's favorites for the season. Unfortunately for the average woman she underestimates the value of color in costuming and almost invariably prefers to follow general styles rather than adapt them to her own Indi vidual beauty. She may not be aware of this fact, but a dav spent with almost any feminine shopper y ill re\ eal the truth of this state ment. The salesgirl's seductive "This is the latest thing, madame." will do more toward deciding her in favor of an arti cle than any amount of assurance that the prospective purchase is becoming. It is well, then, to consider color from fashion's standpoint What are the shades which the fickle dame has stamped with her seal of approval? They are first and foremost black and white combined in any and every way?the very smartest fad of the season?emerald green. Quaker gray, chantecler red and royal purple. These are the shades which are to be most popular during the coming months. All are appropriate to the summer sea sou with the exception of red. Red Is color which should retire into seclusion on the 1st of June and not ap pear again until the 1st of October. Dur ing the intervening months the climate does all In Its power to make us sizzle, and when on? is in such an uncomforta ble condition the sight of this warm, glowing tint is obnoxious to the eye And yet red is seen to a large extent during the warm months. With the advent of the summer season the brilliant hued parasol comes into its own and seems to find admirers In spite of the fact that a red sunshade casts a most unbecoming glow on the fact it protects. No women can look cool in the midst of heat when carrying a red parasol. On the beach or in the mountains a parasol of this shade might be excusable, but in the city, where the thermometer is breaking rec ords. it is an impossibility from a color ful point of view. No matter how fash ionable chantecler red Is said to be. the girl who is wise will not include it in her summer wardrobe. If she looks witli favor upon green she must do so only after carefullv considering her complexion. Even if a girl is a blonde with the palest gold hair and eyes of the deepest blue, she still cannot wear green if her skin is sallow or dark Green is a color which must he regarded first, last and all the time In its relation to the complexion. If a brown-haired girl has n fair skin she can wear this shade with impunity, even though the rest of her coloring may not correspond with the greenish tones. Therv Is no shade among the fashion able colors of the vcar which so becomes the woman with a dull complexion as that tinge of gray called "Quaker's grav." It is soft, conceals instead of reveals the defects of her skin, and when gowned in it she is sure to look her very best. It is a color to be avoided, however, by blondes, as their general coloring i* not sufficiently strong to carry off so in definite a shade On the other hand, purple, the coronation color, is one of the most becoming tones a golden-haired girl can wear It Is particularly effective in the summer because it looks cool. Tlie most fashionable effect of the sea son. the combination of black and white, can be utilized effectively by both blonde and brunette, as It is a combination which lends itself to many variations Fashion Notes. The practical a,? well as pretty rajah and pongee frocks of last summer have given awav almost entirely to foulard, mescaline, crepe and the more clinging silks. Even the necessary summer suit has hearkened to the cry for supple ma terials, and in place of the rajah coat and skirt we have glistening suits of sat in ranging all the way from heavy du chesse to the flimsiest of dull-finished crepes. ' One-piece frocks are delightfully simple both in line and adornment Plain foun THE PROPER WAY TO SHAMPOO! In speaking of the careless way in which most women care for their hair. Mrs. Mac Martyn, the noted au thority, writes as follows in the Los Angeles News: "The increasing bald ness of women with accompanying scalp troubles is becoming alarming. Short, thin, dull, faded, brittle, falling, streaky hair is very common. Few seem to realize that these troubles arc often caused by the alkali in the soap used for shampooing. It is too strong for the hair and eats the very life out of it. "The only safe, reliable shampoo I know of is perhaps the least expen sive. It is made by dissolving a tea spoonful of canthrox in a cup of hot water No other shampoo lathers so well, cleanses so thoroughly or will remove dirt and dandruff as satisfac torily It is the finest thing I have ever found for making the hair soft, fluffy and lustrous. If women would use thi^ splendid shampoo exclusively, we would hear leas of hair and scalp truublea." ? Easy on the woman and easy on the clothes. That's why progressive women are washing their clothes with Fels-Naptha in cool or lukewarm water, in summer or winter. It's easy on the woman, because it does away with fires for heating water, makes hard rubbing un necessary and takes less than half the time of the old way of washing. It's easy on the clothes, because there is no boiling to make the clothes tender, and no hard rubbing to wear them into holes before their time. Save yourself; save your clothes?use Fels-Naptha. Costs little money for a big cake, and lasts longer than ordinary soaps. In using it follow directions printed on the red and green wrapper. Araty Drodge on Teaching 'Rith metis.
