Today is shown a dainty and youthful frock of cream mar quisette for the woman who plans her summer gowns early. The fullness of the blouse is held above the girdle by a band of cream lace and covered above by a collar of cream embroid ery falling in three deep points in front and back. The full sleeve has double bands of lace. The upper portion of the skirt is of the fulled marquisette gathered into two little ruf fles about the knees. Below this the skirt is cut plain and is of all-over embroidery and lace. Hat of ecru straw with, cream roses, chiffon and black velvet trimming. Latest American Fashions BT CORA MOOBE. ? Smartly dressed children are nothing if not picturesque this winter, and the effec t so marked now will he found to be even more conspicuously characteristic when they are clothed according to spring dic tates. In the sketch is shown one of the new coats, good looking and serviceable, ' fashioned of blue serge with. braid and j SPRING COAT OF NAVY SERGIO buttons by way of trimming. The sailor collar is very deep at the back, and in front hides itself under long, square-cut revers. It may be taken as typical of THE DAILY CHIT-CHAT. To go out into the world and do some thing well enough to get paid for it is often difficult. But it is likely to be very interesting and is seldom monoto nous. To stay at home and keep a pleas ant home for the farers-forth may be harder or easier?there is a difference of opinion about that?but it is almost al ways mpre monotonous. Hence, it seems to me that it is the duty of those who go out of the home into the world each day to try to bring back as much as they cfcn to enliven the existences of those who stay at home. Molly, the little stenographer lady, be lieves this with all her heart. And, more than that, she lives it. Long ago Molly made a little rule for herself about this matter. It was to try never to go home without taking some thing to the little mother. The result is that the little mother awaits Molly's homecoming, not only with the eagerness of a mother, but also with the antici pation of a child. Understand me, I do not mean that the "something" is anything very large, or always something that costs money. Molly's slender salary has f^r too many home demands upon it to permit of that. Sometimes it is just an amusing story of happenings at the office that Molly brings home. Again it's some interest ing piece of news about some mutual ac quaintance, which will serve as a topic of conversation all through supper. When finances ar?? low, and there is nothing else in sight, Molly makes a business of visiting some source from which she can get such news, during her lunch hours. Again her offering is her mother's pet newspaper. Once a week she tries to bring home some good magazine. Five or 10 cents' worth of her mother's fa voHte* candy might se?ni like a very paltry offering to some, but to one whose pleasures are few it is a welcome little diversion. Saturday?pay day?is . Molly's great day. Sometimes sh? brings home a whole pound of candy. But Molly'? mother, although she appreciates this ? By Buth Cameron. what the small folk will require as soon as the weather permits them to do away with heavy wraps. The same model reproduced in white serge with white silk braid and brass buttons or in a pastel blue would make an admirable little dress qoat just as, this season, it has been carried out In black velvet and In white corduroy. The kimono shoulder is still retained both for coats and frocks for children, although the sewed-in type is newer. Sleeves themselves are as variously de signed as they have been, but there seems to be a reversion to the high puffed sleeve for the smallest youngsters, per haps because they are so much more comfortable for summer. For school wear there are some new apron dresses that come in kindergarten cloth, brown and white, or blue and white checked, with trimmings of plain color, made up with a large box plait down the front in panel form, with or without a belt of the same. Sometimes these dresses are made a little more elaborate by the addition of collar and cuffs of embroidered linen, and for the youngest tots they are accom panied by a short underskirt. Last year practically all the diminutive frocks were collarless. but now they are likely to have a narrow band collar with a small yoke especially for girls of seven and over. The model mentioned above is also de signed for the boys when it is to be worn over knickerbockers of the same ma terial. and then the belt is a patent leather one. Real aprons?that Is, the garments that are intended to be slipped on over the dress?come in odd Dutch styles consist ing of a skirt gathered to a tiny yoke, sometimes straight across, sometimes pointed, and again long at the sides and rounded to a point at the center front so that it has more the appearance of a zouave jacket than of a yoke. One of the prettiest aprons for a five year-old consists of a short skirt either gathered or plaited to a belt of the same material and the top gathered to a nar row hand, making a circular neck, while ! over the shoulders are bretelles of em broidery. the ends tucked Into the belt both back and front. Nainsook is probably one of the most practical materials for these aprons or apron dresses, but they are equally adaptable for colored fabrics. ^ ; gift thinks it means putting a good deal of money into something that will be ?one in a day or two, t>o more often Molly brings home a less perishable offer ing During her lunch hours she often visits the shops "just to look around, and on these tours she watches for some nice lltt'e thing that can be bought to advant'-ge, and picks it up I" lean weeks it may be on.y ?*2%-cent handkerchief "marked from 25 cents in fatter times it may be a pretty jabot or even the makings of a shirt waist. Twenty-five to GO cents a ?'?ek is Molly's financial investment. Infinite love and thoughtfulness and a tender sympathy for the monotony of her ljttle mothers life are her larger capital What wonder that her profits are bejond calculation. . . If this little Ftory makes you think, ns it does me. I certainly do not need to add any moral or application. Colored Taffetas. ? A delightful black taffeta seen recently, one of the new model gowns for this sea son was cleverly contrived to appear very bunched and frilly in the skirt, while still preserving the appearance of that slim ness of outline which women still decline to renounce. A coat and skirt of navy taffetas trim med with white silk and lace has a smart plain skirt and cutaway coat, rather like a man's morning suit. Some of the newest hats imported from Paris are truly wonderful structures. They are quite bewildering in their va rieties of style, and should satisfy almost any individual taste. The craze for hav ing contrasting colors in sleeves and having the sides of a dress uneven has extended to the hats, and one of the new ideas in black Tagal straw had royal blue satin over half the crown and brim, aaid the same underneath on the reverse side. Standing upright from the center of the crown was an aigrette of blue and black. A great feature of the spring hats is that the trimming should spring from the crown, and this is often quite alarmingly high. A pretty pale pink Tagal hat, massed with pink roses and with an under brim of black, Is one of the new French models, and there are many fascinating little close-fitting shapes in taffetas which arc so becoming to a certain type of face. LOTS OF SOFT, FLUFFY HAIR AND NO DANDRUFF. ? Get a 25-cent bottle of Danderinc and just try this?stops fall ing hair at once. Thin, brittle, colorlcss and scraggy liair is mute evidence of a neglected scalp; of dandruff?that awful scurf. Tnere is nothing so destructive to the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair of its luster, its strength and its very life; eventually producing a feverish ness and itching of the scalp which, if not remedied, causes the hair roots to shrink, loosen and die?then the hair falls out fast. A little Danderine tonight?now? any time?will surely save your hair. Ten minutes after applying all the dandruff will disappear, all itching will cease and there will be no more falling hair. Millions of men and women use Knowlton's Danderine and they never have dandruff, itchy I scalp or falling hair?they know that it keeps the scalp clean and healthy and makes the hair grow heavy, long and beautiful. Get a 25-cent bottle of Knowlton's Danderine from any drug store or toilet counter, and after the first ap plication you will say it was the best investment you ever made. Your hair will immediately take on that life, luster and luxuriance which is so beautiful. It will become wavy and fluffy and have the appearance of abundance; an incomparable gloss and softness, but what will please you most will be after just a few weeks' use, when you will actually see a lot of fine, downy hair?new hair?growing all over the scalp.

Wardrobe Hints. Green, which is, above all colors, the most springlike, has hopes of coming into its own again, and the hue predominates in many of the new tailormade and par ticularly in mixed serges.

For one day |1 ^ Beauty of Brocades Though the beaut? of brocades has been touched upon several times in these columns, sufficient has not been said about them to express adequately the undoubted charm of the new material. It is as soft as chiffon and as rich as vel vet, this fabric, and is used extensively just at present for evening gowns. Stiflfer, handsomer brocades combined with mous seline de sole are used for superb even ing wraps. Put a pretty woman into a frock of the first and she is a picture; wrap her In a mantle of the second and you transform her in a Dogaressa. Gold or silver threads still glorify the stiifer and richer brocades, and they are veiled or draped with mousseline, which may ofTer a contrast in color as well as in fabric. Generally speaking, however, the robe of brocade is not veiled, but, like the underskirt of the transparent tunic, it is still a clinging, gracefully draped gar ment. often with a long narrow train trailing behind it. Lace and fur are the gamisrhing with which brocade should be served at fashion's festive board, and the additional intermingling of ninon or mousseline is truly very fascinating. When the colors are brilliant or the design unusualy bold a transparency adds to the grace of the gown. There is often some sort of tunic, but this is the exception rather than the rule, for the reason that it is not bright hues, but a soft, rich coloring that the beautiful brocades of this season affect. The introduction of velvet into the de sign and even the gleaming of silver and gold only add to the richness without making for gariehness. Brightly colored brocade is in any case only used for the facing of cloth or satin gowns. Buttons matching the garment are a j salient feature of frocka and tailored I suits. They blend with it, and there* I fore arc not used as a contrast. issincsaciSKisansaosHssHssescses | SAGE TEA DARKENS THE HAIR AND g RESTORES COLOR TO GRAY HAIR 1 Cures Dandruff, Stops the Hak* From Fall ing Out and Makes It Grow. There is nothing new about the idea of using Hare for restoring the color of the hair. Our grandmothers kept their hair dark, glossy and abundant by the uae of a simple "Sage Tea." Whenever thalr hair fell out or took on a dull, faded or streaked appearance, they made a brew of Sage leaves and applied it to their hair with wonderfully beneficial effect. Nowadays-we don't have to resort to the old-time tiresome method of gathering the herbs and waking the tea. This is done by skillful chemists better than we could do it ourselves; and all we have to do is to call for the readyoiade product, Wyeth'a Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy, containing Sage in the proper strength, with Jhe ad dition of Sulphur, another old-time scalp remedy. This preparation giTes youthful color and beauty to the hair, and is one of the best remedies you can uae for dandruff, dry, feverish, itching sc&Jp, and falling hsir. Get a 50-cent bottle from your druggist today, and you will be surprised at the quick results.

Probably one of our odd spring notions will be the muffling of the neck. The two reasons that induce this are the habit of woaring collarless frocks and the fash ion that obtained during the coldest of weather of throwing our huge stoles round the throat and over the shoulder. It is to be noticed that -women who dis card their furs when going south are adopting close-fitting necklets even amid the sunshine of these warmer climes. In our fickle northern climate we are sure to copy this mode in due course, though the muffling may lead to feverish over heating and subsequent colds, and soma smart girl? are already to be seen with out their stoles, but with the throat closely enveloped in chinchilla or erniina, fastened at one side by a ribbon bow. As the weather grows milder huge pierrot ruffles will be seen again, and there -will be a duel between the inordi nately high stiff stock, which is not com fortable and which spoils the texture and color of the throat, and the eollarles* frock, which errs so often on the side sf discretion Complexion veils enhance the cuntour of the face, and both the single and double varieties are desirable; the lat ter have a very fine open black mesh over the flesh-tinted tulle.
