Young, Zl'XTrl'ZX'-" RESTORE BRAY HAIR TO NATURAL COLOR By Common Garden Sage, a Simple Remedy for Dan druff, Falling, Faded, Gray Hair. The old idea of using Sage for darkening the hair is again com ing in vogue. Our grandmothers had dark, glossy hair at seventy five, while our mothers are gray before they are fifty. Our grandmothers kept their hair soft and glossy with a "Sage Tea," which also restored the natural color. One objection to using such a preparation was the trouble of making it. This objection has been overcome by the Wyeth Chemical Company of New York, which has placed on the market a superior preparation of Sage, combined with Sulphur and other valuable remedies for dandruff, itching scalp, and thin, weak, falling hair. The beauty of the "hair de pends more on its rich, even shading than anything else. Don't have dry, harsh, faded hair, when a simple, harmless remedy will bring back the color in a few days; and don't be torment ed with dandruff, itching scalp and loose, falling hairs. Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy will quickly correct these troubles, and give color, strength and beauty to your hair.

The present craze for lace has one de fect of its qualities, and nothing can be more ridiculous than when incoherent, misplaced draperies of the fabric are hung about us. in irrelevant panniers and dra^ peries. The mere man Is to be pardoned if he thinks, as he not infrequently does, that we have come undone and lia^ bits of us hanging loose. Narrow draperies slung from one shoul der (the lop-sided drapery is at best a dangerous joy), hung from the waist, tied round the knee or trailing down the back, may by some freak become fashionable and no longer appear ludicrous in the sight of our obedient eyes, but they can not cease to bo ugly.

Self-Rising A great saver of time and money. MADE BY WHITE SERGE AND BUCK SILK. After all is said the black and white combination, especially for street wear, is conceded to be the smartest. An attractive little suit of white serge, sketched above, argues forcibly in de fense of this opinion. The straight, closely fitting coat has a smart diagonal closing, which is accentuated by the band of white lace which follows the coat edge and continues on the skirt. There are broad, round cornered revers and deep collar of black satin trimmed with buttons covered with the white serge. This order is reversed on the skirt and coat portions, the closing being affected by means of black satin buttons on the serge. Latest American Fashions BY COBA MOORE. No one feature has held sway so per sistently as the veiling of one fabric wi?h anotner, and now the idea is being carried out in cotton materials with as much success as it achieved in silks. HOW COTTON FABRICS ARE VEILED AS THE SIL.K ONES HAVE BEEN. In place of the foundation of satin meteor or any one of the other lustrous surfaced fabric9 with silk marquisette ? * SARTORIAL HINTS. By Elisabeth Lee. i ? The lace-over blouses are going to be a great help toward bringing last yeaf's summer frocks up to date, and if one will make these coatlike waists at home the transformation may be accomplished w.th very little money outlay. Unless one Is prepared to pay a very good price the lace blouse bought ready to wear in the shops will soon become tawdry looking. Not so the homemade article, especially if one takes advantage of the bargains offered in bandings just now. The wider, heavier laces joined with a 1 narrower width of embroidery or finer lace can be fash.oned into exquisite coats and not cost a great deal. The heavier rat.ne laces, in cream, join ed with butter color embroidered batiste, are particularly fetching, and so are the ecru tones. The designs are very simple, nothing more or less than a straight piece down the back?two stolelike ends in the front, an apology for slteves, and a rib bon passed through the coat at the waist line, as a belt, closed at the left side. One could renovate a half worn waist by the addition of the coat or make a plain, simple waist put on quite an air of im portance. A business girl going to the theater, lunch, or d.nner could take one of these blouses to the office with her and put it over her office dress when ready to go. With a bit of fresh neckwear, she will be quite ready, while time will be also saved. When lace is considered to be too ex pensive, then I think very fine dotted swlss trimmed with German val will be a wise choice, using broad blacit velvet ribbon for the belt if the blouse Is to be worn over a colored frock and a pretty ribbon if the gown is black. Then there are very attractive patterns in all-over embroideries that answer the purpose, too. But to be r?ally effective the edges must be finished with a plain strapping, and this does not always look well when the coat is worn. Jf the dress is rather fafl etful - the effect -is- gsod, bat ? otherwise or chiffon as a transparency, we mKaii wear pretty linens or figured cottons made up with cotton marquisette, or one of the sheer, fine voiles, and some won derfully charming results are obtained thereby. The sketch represents a summer frock of cream-colored Hnen embroidered In coarse blue floss outlining a hip yoke and a five-inch band, with a row of blue glass buttons down the center front. The pannier draperies are of plain blue voile matching the color of the buttons and I embroidery. Hung from the top, with considerable fullness, they are let up in under the belt to form a two-inch ruffle or beading, which, incidentally, trims the lower part of the bodice. At knee depth each pannier Is drawn dowm straight and shirred twice Into roundel points that are fixed with a cording. The cording at the same time holds In a narrow frill ing of the voile. The bodice has kimono side sections, in which the band embroid-* ery figures and which folds over a vest of plain linen finely tucked. The vest has also a tiny V-shaped yoke of untucked line'h. With this veiling method It is possible to work out interesting color schemes that otherwise would not be tol erated in washable fabrics, and as it is the idea is not always practical. Mate rials that can be calculated upon to laun der with about equal success should be selected for combination, although many of the summer fabrics can be counted upon to last a season with one or two dry cleanings, and there are so many of them that are as inexpensive as they are effective that on* feel* inclined to In clude a number of them In the warm weather outfit." Developed after this same model of the sketch is a striped pink and white cot ton voile, the stripes inclosed in a thin line of black and a very sheer, transpar ent black cotton marquisette employed for the pannier. Then at the foot instead of being brought into the shirrings, as shown here, the panniers were slashed into two sections and each shirred sepa rately, then drawn apart into the space of three Inches, where a band of the goods held tflem with a straight black velvet bow at one end of the strap and a black-satin-covered button at the other. The buttons were placed at the inner ends. A gown of this sort is suitable for afternoon or evening. the plain edge la not a success. At the same time, neither will be the embroid-1 ered or the lace edge. So there you are. In buying the all-over, then, one must stop to consider the kind of dresa It will be worn over. The taffeta blouae coats are a little more important than thoae of lace, be ing trimmed quite a good deal and cut more after the style of a coat than the lace blouse. To my thinking, it might be a good plan to make up the peplum sep arate from the blouse. The latter could then be worn as a smart waist, adding the peplum as occasion demanded. In this way the blouse could be worn to the office and the peplum be carried if the time for dressing for some informal affair were limited. As the peplum givea a coatlike air, this kind of blouse could be worn as a coat upon the street, removing the pepl&m in shop or office. Many women object to the separate skirt and waist for street wear, yet find it a very convenient working cos tume. The peplum then aolvea the prob lem. It connect8 the two in every sense of the word.

Furthermore, at least half of the educated classes in the United States are afflioted with serious defects of vision, as you *can easily see by thinking of the number of people who are absolutely de pendent on spectacles or eyeglasses. This is the startling statement which Is put forth by a society founded to help conserve the American vision. When one considers how delicate is the mechanism of our eyes and how all important they are to us?if we had our choice, I think most of us would rather die than go blind?does it not 6eem strange that we know so little about our eyes and the way to take care of them? For instance, most people continually overwork the eyes Where eyesight is al ready defeotlve such policy is suicidal. The length of application should be regu lated to the strength of the eyesight, and the eyes should be rested occasionally, either by closing them for a few minutes or by looking at some distant object. All work with the eyes should be done, so far as possible, with the matter nearly perpendicular to the line of vision?that is, school desks and other supports should be tilted at an angle of about thirty de | grees. How many of us do this? Direct sunlight should never be used for any kind of close eye work, and win dows which receive direct sunlight should ! be equipped with light buff or green hol 1 land shades. We often speak of this or that kind of artificial light as being hard on the eyes. This is a wrong notion. All light sources in common use are capable of giving a light that is perfectly agreeable to the eye: it is the way in which the lights are used which makes the difference. The reason that the light from a kerosene lamp seems easier for the eyes Is that such lamps are always placed on the table and nearly always covered with shades which completely hide the flame. Elec tricity and gas burned in a mantle burn er, when used in the same way, are just as good for the eyes. In reading or writing the light should !not come from squarely in front, a desk lamp should always be placed to one side, j | In reading, always sit with the back to- j ward the light or table. , It is a common mistake to suppose that one cannot have too much light. For read ing or writing on white paper, or sewing on white goods, too much light may pro duce a daszling effect. Mirrors and polished surfaces should be avoided In places where much close work is to be done, as reflected light, especially from a low surface, is particularly hard on the eyes. I Lamps of any kind should not be too I near the eyes, as the hyt given off ir 1 ritates them. ? Perhaps you knew and observed all these little precautions before. But if you did, you are certainly not my old friend, the average person. FRECKLES PartWfc Tlwm With ? Veil; T!

This method of pressing real laces is practiced by & Frenchwoman who always does up her valuable collection of old laces. The rolled lace is wound round a good sized bottle, which is then covered with white muslin, carefully tacked on. Put the bottle in a kettle tilled with eold water, in which a good sized piece of white soap is dissolved, and boil for an hour. Pour off the soiled water and add fresh until the water is clear. Remove the bottle and rinse repeatedly through cold water. Take off the muslin and let the lace dry on the bottle. If the stiffness is out the lace is dipped in a lit tle skim milk. It is then put in a damp cloth until ready to pin out. The pinning out process is most impor tant. A wooden drum twelve inches high and twenty-four inches in diameter is covered with cotton wadding and white muslin on the circumference of the wood, and the cylinder has blue paper put over it, as less trying to the eyes than white. Take out just enough lace from the cloth to pin it before drying entirely. Pin the heading of lace first in a straight edge, setting the pins closely and at equal distances. Then pin out each picot sep arately, taking care to keep them la shape and to retwist if they have becom* untwisted. If the picots cannot all be pinned before the lace dries, dampen them with a wet cloth, as sticking pins into dry parts may tear valuable lace. Use very fine pins for the tiny picots and coarser ones for heavier lace. Only a non-rustable pin must be used. The lace must stay pinned on the cylin der until dry. when it is removed and slipped into blue paper bags to keep clean until the entire portion to be washed la finished. Do not attempt this pinning out when in a hurry, a? the work must be don* carefully and should be finished at on* sitting. When the lace is fragile and very soiled, before washing on a bottle soak for sev eral hours In pure olive oil.
