? COAT SUIT OF LINEN.
Tlic coat suit of linen embroidered in broderie l'anglais which accompanies this is one of the simplest and most charm ing designs seen this season for this sort of frock. The short c??at of linen has wide revers and shawl collar of the eyelet em broidery finished with a narrow ruffle of lace. The coat stops on either >ide of the front skirt panel, leaving this exposed to the waist line. The skirt has a double tunic heavily embroid ered which falls over a plain underskirt of linen. Girdle of black satin. Sa.\e gloves, perfumed and pale of tint, long and loo.se. are one of the crazes of the hour. To be sure, they are extrava gant. for they soil at once, but they are liked well, and are worn universally. They are chic. Many tight skirts are buttoned at the nlde-front or over the hip from the waist' line down, with i>ossibly a corresponding row of buttons on the op??osite hip. The buttons used are as large as a nickel or a quarter dollar. Braids of many widths from soutache to the half-yard-wide bands are still prominent, the bands seldom encircling ? a garment or any of its parts, but ap pearing in sections or panels, or half bands just where they are most useful in accentuating the good points of a crea tion. From the heart of a great importing house comes the information that many new skirts for fall are showing "bunch ings" or drapings in the edges of the gores, some of the bunchings being at each side of the front, or below each hip, or at the back?quite in the old-fashioned styles of a decade long since past. It is reported that old-time dolman ? sleeve effects are coming in.

Woe betide the unfortunate dress ed-up folk If there is a continuance of this weather. Meanwhile the linen costume is carry ing all before it. Two deliciously cool looking woman, a good-looking mother and a fair daughter, were seen on the Avenue this week. The mother was iti a coat and skirt of the palest gray linen, made quite simply, the coat just defining the figure and a good half length, with a double line of six white pearl buttons running down either back side seam, above and below the waist line. With this was worn a soft ivory net shirt, the great frill of which fell over one side of the coat, to the latter's complete extinc tion. ^ The daughter, in the same linen, select ed a Russian tunic style of dress, on which a simple design in gray soutache was wrought, completed by a square giiinipe and under sleeves of gray ninon. The costume was crowned by a great soft gray straw hat, trimmed with a broad old rose ribbon velvet, tied in a great bow one side the front, the weight of the vel vet forcing the brim slightly downward. Because of the ubiquity of the linen suit, the only chance of achieving any sort of triumph is to be smartly individual both in cut and coloring, and preferably to avoid anything approaching elaborate braiding or, indeed, elaborate trimming of any description. There is. too. a cotton corduroy, which promises to be popular It tailors quite extraordinarily well, and has a soft, velvety appearance, occasioned by the cordings being carried out in con trasting colors. White and gray or white and tan are particularly successful, an accompanying blouse of ninon taking up the neutral shade, should that style of slip be preferred to one of lingerie. But in some form or another a linen coat and skirt claims, and justifiably claims, a very large share of this sum mer's attention. Hints on Dress. When in doubt about the color of a summer dress choose white. The selec tion will never be a matter of regret, wiiile if pink is favored when blue hung in the balance there might always be harbored a feeling that blue might have been best after all, and vice versa. By taking white as a compromise you cannot possibly make a mistake, especially when it emerges from the tub fresh and crisp and sinowy as the first day it was worn. The idea that white Is extravagant is entirely wrong, as any of the bargain counters in the large stores will testify. There is no cheaper nor cleaner fabric in all the dry goods schedule than the sheer, cool "white goods'' that tills all available space to overflowing these hot monthsi. For liiV? cents a yard any num- J ber of pretty baired dimities, lawns and-, the like are available. Tvo such dresses ! that will stand the tub and come out smootn from under the iron will keep a girl looking twice as well as the same amount of money invested in a colored dress trimmed with yards of cheap lace. White is the color of refinement, as the number of tool, well poised women one sees wearing it will attest. Especially is the simple white dress of dimity, lawn, mull or some kindred mate ria! tiie favored frock of the young girl of cultured taste. Several schools set the example of reason in dress this year when the sweet girl graduates fixed a surprisingly low sum to be expended for their graduating gowns. At one school, located in a prosperous district, $1.5l> was the limit allowed for the material of the commencement dress. Several of the girls made their own frocks under the direction of a domestic science teach er without additional expense, while others worked under the direction of mothers or friends. They were pro nounced the most attractive class of girls that ever received the school's fin ishing seal of approval. The woman with more time than money arid a desire to do something, creating within her a spirit of unrest, could make no better investment than a dress length of some of the cool-looking white ma terials now so reasonably priced, a good Pattern, a package of needles, some thread and a firm belief in her own abil ity to fashion a simple, becoming frock. Coiffure for Summer. How difficult it is to keep the hair nicely dressed during the hot weather. With the very first provocation of damp, heat or exertion it becomes straight, and all the careful waving and curling be stowed upon it this morning are as noth ing. As there is nothing to do to induce the waves to stay when the thermometer registers a maximum degree, it behooves the woman who wishes to look well in all weathers to devise a #coiffure which will become her even though her locks are straight. If her hair is well brushed and arranged at a becoming angle she i? sure to present an attractive appear ance, even though her customary waves are g?*ie. And now a word in regard to the c^re of the hair. Just at this period of the year the hair, on account of the hot weather, gets exceedingly creasy and dirty, is diffi cult to dress and looks lank and heavy. To be continually washing it is a long and tiresome operation, and very often quite impossible. Nevertheless, the hair is entitled to the same amount of atten tion as are the body and face, though this is a fact which is too little recog nized. A little tonic rubbed into the scalp each night will not only keep the bead free from dust, but will improve its appearance so perceptibly that the time consumed by the night massage will seem well spent indeed. There are any number of good tonics on the market, and in using them it must be remembered that it is the rubbding, not the liquid preparation, which counts most for good i aft' r all. The coiffure is subject to Dame Fash ion's dictates just as much as the ward robe. What was the style last season is no longer de rigueur today. A soft, loose arrangement of the hair is now in vogue, and the style is almost universally becoming. How to Make a Rose Jar. (?ather rose petals when the roses are in their richest bloom, but not when the dew is on them. Pack in a jar in layers two inches deep, sprinkling about two tablespoonfuls of fine, dry salt upon each layer. Continue this until the jar is full, adding fresh petals and salt daily. Keep in a dark, cool place A week after the last relay is gathered turn out the salted petals upon a broad platter, mix and toss together until the mass is loosened. Then incorporate thoroughly with the formula given below, pack in a clean jar, cover lightly and set away to "ripen." it will be ready for rose jars, etc., in a fortnight, and if kept covered will be good and fragrant for twenty years. Formula?Violet powder, one-half ounce; orris root, one ounce; rose powder, one half ounce; heliotrope powder, one-half ounce; mace, one-half teaspoonful; cinna mon, one-quarter teaspoonful; cloves, one-halt teaspoonful; oil of roses, four drops; oil cliiris. ten drops; oil eucalyptus, twenty drops; bergamot, ten drops; alco hol, two drams. If you wish to fill a pillow with rose leaves alone, spread the petals in the shade, but on a sunny day, and dry thoroughly before stuffing the pillow. Then scatter a tablespoonful of powder ed orris root among them, and sprinkle with ten drops of real attar of roses. The inferior qualities will not hold the fragrance. Make the inner cover of glased cambric, the outer of silk or satin, decorated to suit the fancy. The cordeliere that was brought out on house gowns last summer is now widely taken up for all mariner of frocks. It is only suitable for those with the high waist line. The newest interpretation of it is a series of heavy cords covered with silk or satin, placed close together, and finished at the side of the front with irregular ends. "Soap is soap," said a woman. Her only idea of soap was some thing to mix with hot water in order to make'a steaming suds. She thought it didn't matter which kind she used?and it didn't. But if she had used Fels-Naptha in the way it should be used, in cold or lukewarm water, she would have learned that Fels-Naptha is not only a soap but a different way of washing. A sewing machine is of no use to a woman who doesn't know how to use it. Neither is any other labor-saving device. Before you use a cake of Fels-Naptha, then, read carefully the directions printed on the back of the red and green wrapper. The directions will tell you how to make Fels-Naptha do the hardest part of your washing, without hot fires, without steaming suds, without boiling or back breaking hard labor. It will save your clothes, save time, save fuel, save your health and the clothes will be cleaner and whiter than ever before. But not unless you use it the Fels-Naptha way. Look for the red and green wrapper. Amity Dnuidge Explains Why. Mrs. Don'teare?"Yes, but soap is soap, and it doesn't matter which we use." Anty Drudge?"Yes, and medicine is medicine, but it does matter which kind you take. And it is the same way with soap. Some will do the work and some won't. I know from experience that Fels-Naptha is the only kind of soap that will wash things clean in cold or lukewarm water. It isn't just soap; it is a different and easier way of washing." 314 - 3X6 SEVENTH STREET A Few Timely Bargains For a Busy Friday.

For this reason it is well to make some vegetable the main stay of the meal, and if meat is used at all to have it. of secondary importance. Rice is easily digested and nourishing and is inost appetizing when combined with tomatoes. A luncheon with these two excellent vegetablet cookerl together is composed of stuffed tomatoes, sliced beef, fruit salad and iced tea or coffee. Tomatoes Stuffed With Bice. .Cut a slice from the stem end of a good sizc<i. tomato and remove the seds. being careful not to break the shell. Mix to gether a half pint of cold boiled ri< e. a half teaspoonful of salt, one saltspoonful of pepper, one tablespoon ful of melted butter and a dash of chopped onion if de sired. Kill the tomatoes with tbe mixture, place them in a baking dish and hake in a hot oven for a half hour. Chopped green peppers may be substituted for the onion. Sliced Beef in Brown Gravy. The cold beef remaining from yester day's roast can be converted into a de lightful luncheon dish with little prepara tion. Cut tli? meat in slices about a quarter of an inch thick, i lace theih in a frying pan with a tablespoonful of hot water and allow it to simmer down. This will heat the meat through. Pour over it the gravy left from the roast dinner and enough water to bring it to the proper consistency. Iiet the meat simmer in the gravy for about ten minutes. I'our out on a deep platter and garnish with leaves of curly parsley. Seasonable Fruit Salad. An excellent fruit salad for this sea son of tbe year is made of sliced pineap ple, red raspberries and sliced bananas. It should not be allowed to stand before it is served, as the fruit juices should not mix, but each be allowed to retain Its own flavor. I'se equal portions of the fruit and serve them in a basket made of a crisp leaf of lettuce. Some like a dressing of sweetened orange juice over their fruit salad, while others prefer an oil or French dressing. To make the salad a ; trifle more substantial, it may be dusted I over with grated cream cheese, when the orange is used. fruit and cheese making a delicious combination. Lamb Cutlets in Tomato Jelly. Boil or braise the hest end of a neck of lamb, ami when cold trim into cutlets. Mix together equal parts of toma|o sauce and aspic jelly and ma.sk the cutlets with tliis when almost cold and leave them to set. Serve the cutlets round a macedoine of vegetables with mayonnaise sauce, and garnish with cut-up aspic and slices of tomato. Iced Curry in Cucumber Cases. Prepare cases of cucumbers by cutting off neatly peeled lengths, stamp out in a fluted shape and hollow out in center. Stew gently half an hour and fill with the curry. Prepare fairly early and stand on ice. Little Lobster Salads. liuh the yolks of four hard-boiled eggs through a sieve, season with salt, pepper and cayenne and add by degrees four tablespoon fuls of salad oil. When a smooth paste is formed pour in a tea spoonful of vinegar, a gill of cool liquid aspic jelly and a gill of double cream. Have ready some of the best portions of a lobster, coarsely chopped, add to the mixture and till some small china cases which have been line with aspic jelly. Pour in a little cool aspic over the tilling and put the molds in a cool place or on Ice tl'.l required. Turn them out and garnis?h with a little finely shredded let tuce and cucumber.
