Simple Gowns.
Some of the prettiest little dresses seen
recently were either in cache mi re re sole,
foulard or crepe de chine, and they were
?o very simple that it will be difficult to
describe them. One was in black cache
mire de sole, looped up at the sides Just
about the height of the knees with a
narrow shiny leather belt at the waist
hslf cherry colored, half black, and fast
ening the corsage across the bust, from
shoulder to waist, a lino of buttons that
looked like cherries. The low neck was
turned bock by a very Rood lace collar,
and a transparent gulmpe filled up the
decollete.
Another equally simple frock was In
blue crepe de chlno with chiffon panniers
and waterfall back. The corsage had a
quite low waist line and was full about
the bust and under ths arms. A collar
and revers of milanese lace lined with
blue chiffon trimmed the shoulders, and
a gulmpe of transparent net lilted up the
decollete, as in the other dress. The
sleeves were quite long and tight, with
lace frills, and the waist belt was just
a fold of the material hanging in flat
ends on one side.
It is said with good authority that we
are surely drifting toward the wasp-like
waist, and the news is sad, for, what
with very high heels and wasp-like waists,
we shall certainly store up many evils for
ourselves In the way of poor health.
Novel Hat Pin.
The prettiest hat pin yet has two ruf
fles of Lace, in the center of which is a
wreath of tiny ribbon roses in pastel
shades. The roses are no larger than
peas, and then are six of them in the
little wreath, which Is about the slse of
a sliver quarter dollar. The lace ruffles
spread out from the wreath of tiny roses
and the hat pin, In place, looks like a
dainty ornament on the crown.

Correspondence Pockets.
The traveler who goes from place to
place, frequently changing her abode,
finds a correspondence pocket a great
boon. It is a wallet-shaped envelope
with a couple of gusset pockets for an
swered and unanswered letters, secured
by a good lock and key.
There are many varieties of the genus.
A double-faced wallet Is still more con
venient than the pocket Just described,
tor the unanswered missives are commit
ted to a place quite apart from the
answered ones, and In between is stowed
away a compact writing paraphernalia,
including a pencil, a pen and blotting
book.
The wallet Is essentially a limp affair,
convenient to carry, but a design that em
bodies its charms and is arranged to
stand firmly upon a writing table, Is call

WOMAN
REAPERS
BY COBA MOOBE.
So much is allowed in the way cf sum
mer evening gowns that it is a trifle diffi
cult to distinguish between them and cos
tumes that are distinctly for daylight.
They must, of course, be decollete, but
the decolletage is rarely expansive. In
fact, there is an obvious inclination to
ward the neck that is modestly cut out.
although it must be admitted it is not so
apt to be generally becoming. The most
popular cut is what perhaps is most clear
ly described as a shallow square with
the corners rounded, the line being start
ed at the center of the shoulder.
As for materials, they are fascinating
as to txeture and color, and. joy of joys,
they are inexpensive. It is quite possible
to acquire a half dozen pretty evening
frocks this summer for the price of two
or three in seasons past.
? A great "deal is being clone with flowered
muslins in spite of the fact that silks and
satins are very much "in." They are
made up with a plain color, usually a
messaline. and. if an old gown ckn be
made to answer the purpose, the cost of a
charming confection is absurdly small.
The remnant counters are fruitful sources
of suitable materials, many a dress
length, or, at least, a tunic length of late
pattern being available, or, if the design
is of last year's vintage, what matter?
The fabrh.' is comparatively unimportant.
Everything is made up. however, with
a view to airiness and ,7ayety of effect.
Black muslins must have foundations of
white or light color, anrl light colors must
be put with something pretty and con
trasting. For this reason chiffon, which
at first thought would appear to be quitp
out of keeping with muslin, is used for
trimming
In the model o?" the sketch the material
is a soft cream-tinted njuslin. while the
deep bandings are of rose-colored chiffon
cloth and the lace one of the new linen
species. The lines are especially good,
and it will readily be seen the model
would turn out successfully in various
other combinations of material.*:. A copy
of it in black and white with guipure lace
laid over pink chiffon is wonderfully love
ly. while crepe d^ chine and mousseline,
which Is a bit harsher than chiffon, and
therefore of pleasing contrast, are like
wise most effecthe.
It will be noticed that the tunic tips

slight drcopinr? effect toward the back,

has a train. In this? case the train is a
part or the back drapery, the mull being
mounted smoothly at the top. where it is
folded under, and gradually opening to its
full width, where it is tucked under the
tunic. From there it is caught into small

Little Stories for Bedtime;
OL' MISTAH BUZZARD MAKES FRIENDS.
By THORNTON W. BURGESS.
Unc* Billy Possom and Jimmy Skunk
tramped through the Green Forest and
over the Green Meadows till their feet
ached. They had started out to ?visit
the homes of all the little people who
live there to tell them that the black
stranger who had sailed the skies all
the day before, and frightened most of
them so that they hardly dared put
their noses outside of their own doors,
was as harmless as Peter Rabbit him
self. You see, they ha# all taken him
for a fierce hawk, and had been fright
ened almost to death at the very sight
of him. And all the time he wasn't a
hawk at all, but just an old friend of
Unc* Billy Possom, Ol' Mistah Buz
zard, who had come up from "way down
south.
"My!" exclaimed I'nc' Billy, as he
stopped to mop his face with a red
cotton _ handkerchief. "Ah didn't know
there were so many little people on
the Green Meadows and in the Green
Forest." , ,
Just then he spied the Merry Little
Breezes of Old Mother West Wind,
and a happy thought came to him. He
would get them to take his message
around. Why hadn't he thought of It
before? Of course, the Merry Little
Breezes were tickled to death, for they
are always looking for something to do
| for otirers. So off they raced as fast
I as they could, while Unc' Billy hurried
t back to have a chat with Ol* Mistah
Buzzard.

people were inclined to be very doubt

HOMEMADE CEMENTS
FOR REPAIRING CHINA
BY ELIZABETH LEE.
Accidents will happen despite the great
est care, and many a broken article of
glass or china has been thrown away
that might have been repaired had the
owner realized it could have been done at
home with little trouble or expense.
The prepared cements are very good,
but there are homemade cements which
will be found superior to the bought
kinds.
Small pieces of glass or bric-a-brac
used for ornamentation when broken can
be mended most satisfactorily by paint
ing the edges with carriage varnish put
on with a camel's-hair brush, and then
pressing them together.
If possible, broken articles should be
mended at once, while the edges are
"clean." Should the pieces be put aside
for any length of time, each should be
washed carefully and then thoroughly
dried before being repaired.
The very best homemade cement is
made by dissolving Russian Isinglass in
pure water. It should soak for one
whole day or night, and then be dissolved
by heating.
In the case of an article being broken
into more than two pieces, one must be
mended and allowed to dry before the
next is joined.
If the best isinglass is bought this
cement will stand any amount of heat,
drv or water. The genuine isinglass will
not be less than 30 cents an ounce, but
? it is very light, and only a small quantity
is required. The cement, if made right,
should be perfectly white. A cheap and
very- durable cement is made by burning
oyster shells and pulverizing the lime
from them. This is mixed with the white
of an egg into a thick paste and applied
to the broken edges.
When the broken article is something
not In constant use I have been very
successful in mending with a little flour
mixed with the white of an egg. One
must take care not to get too much of
this paste on the edges, because, if they
do, the paste comes up between the edges,
and this cannot be removed until the
whole thing Is dry, and only a sharp knife
will remove this surplus. Consequently
there is danger of the pieces coming apart
again.
A cement for mending furniture or for
general household use is made from one
and one-half pints of water, of glue three
fourths of a pound, one ounce of white
lead and a pint of alcohol. These are
the proportions, but one can, of course,
make just what quantity they desire.
Dissolve the glue In the water. Then re
move from the Are and stir in the white
lead. Add the alcohol last. This keeps
the cement in a fluid state except, per
haps, In extremely cold weather. When
wanted for use the cement should be
warmed and thoroughly stirred. For white
or light woods use white flshglue Instead
of the ordinary kind. This is dissolved in
water, and then the white lead Is added.
Next all Is brought to a boll until thor
zard. "How do you know?" demanded
Danny Meadow Mouse of the Merry
Little Breezes.
Because Unc' Billy Possom has known
him for a long time and he says so,"
replied the Merry Little Breezes.
"I'll believe it when I see Unc* Billy
risking his precious old skin where the
stranger can reach him." said Danny,
stretching his neck to try to see over
the grass tops.
The Merry Little Breezes clapped
hands joyously. "Look right down there
by Farmer Brown's old hayrick."
Danny came out where he could see.
Sure enough there was Ol' Mlstah Buz
zard, large as life, sitting on the hay
an^ right down below him was
sitting rnc' Billy Possom and the two
were talking and laughing fit to kill
themselves. More than that, old Mrs
Possom was hurrying up with a broad
grin and behind her scampered all the
little Possom children. When Danny
??w *hat he made up his mind that
, Ol Mlstah Buzzard really was harm
less. and promptly started down to par
his respects.
One by one all day long the little
meadow and forest people stole over
to pay their respects to Ol' Mistah
Buzzard. They found him all ready to
make friends and so full of stories that
most of them stayed to listen.
Late that afternoon when Ol' Mistah
Buzzard sought the dead tree In the
Forest to roost for the night Unc
Billy Possom strolled by that way to see
if his old friend was comfortable. Ol'
Mistah Buzzard looked down at Unc'
Billy and his eyes twinkled.
"Ah reckon." said Ol' Mistah Buz
zard. 'that yo'AIl is right, and Ah sho'ly
am going to stay on the Green Meadows
a right smart while. Ah sho'ly am."
oughly mixed. and when cool enough to
E? lltJw alcoholJs Put in. This cement
is good for marble statuary as well as
for wood.
u^u?,od ceinent paste for paper or scrap
book is made by first dissolving a bit of
glue, say two inches square, In a little
WR.e.r\ and adding pulverized alum the
weight of the glue. Next stir half a
teaspoonful of flour in a little water, add
to the glue pot and bring to a boil. When
nearly cold stir in a little oil of lavender.
HERE AND THERE IN
THE FASHION LAND
Every other day seems to bring to
light some new idea in neckwear cal
culated to charm the lover of pretty
fancies. Try the efTect of the corsage
cut in a deeply rounded manner in the
front and filled in with a kerchief of
soft white moussellne demurely folded1.
The charm of the notion will appeal to
you just as it did to Marie Antoinette
and the Empress Josephine, who in
their day rang the changes upon fichus
and kerchiefs of the most bewitchin?
charm.
A coming bride has arranged that r

Charming bandeaux for the hair and
necklaces are combined, so that thev

wreaths and buckles of diamonds
threaded on to narrow velvet ribbon.
But the ubiquitous ornament Is once
more the pearl rope, long or short, ac

the purchaser.
Choosing a Hat.
Women cannot complain this season at
the unsuitability of models, for styles are
so varied that there are shapes enough
to go round and to set off to the best ad
vantage each individual type of face.
Some women have a way of selecting
their hats rather at random, without suffi
ciently studying effect Now it takes time
to choose properly, and it needs a sym
pathetic friend or saleswoman. One hjin
respect for the woman who is oourageous
enough to express an opinion and is not
n automaton paid to sell for some
despotic manager. A successful milliner
i" artist: her assistants should be
f;?8- too?clever enough to understand
h tt cL ts are there to be suitably
A college president who was lecturing
on the type of girl who succeeds and
the type of girls who fails declared that
one of the mo^t common members of
that latter class is the girl who always
tries to blame anything untoward that
happens to her upon some one else. This
kind of girl, he said, if she was passing
through a gate and there was nobcdy
else in sight, and she should tear her
gown, would still think that the accident
was somebody's fault.
We all know people like that?people
who regard every unfortunate happen
ing in the home or outside cf it as some
body's fault, and are perfectly frantic
if they cannot find some one to blame
for anything that disturbs or inconve
niences them.
When anything disagreeable occurs,
these folks must immediately let oiT
steam by blaming some one, and when,
as sometimes happens, the dis-agreeable
occurrence cannot really Pe traced to any
one these people become absolutely ex
plosive wth pent-up blame.
For Instance, in an office in which I
once "worked the head man was of this
type. One summer day when all the j
windows were open, as a mattt* of
course, the whole office force happened
to be out of the room. One girl was at
dinner, t>y his permission; another had
gone downstairs with him to take down
an important interview, and the office
boy had been sent on an errand. During
this period a quick summer shower came
up and some important papers were in
jured by the rain. It was really invo?
sible for the man to blame any one for i
this unfortunate happening, and we al- j
most feared thai his pent-up irritation ]
would do him physical injury.
In all too many households, where
some of the family have this desire to
blame some one for everything that
troubles them, the patient mother is the
scapegoat of every accident and every
irritation.
"Why wasn't the telephone answered
today?" demands the son of the family.
"I tried six times to get the house and
they told me you didn't answer. It's too
bad, mother. I don't see any use in our
having a telephone if you can't answer
it." Whereupon the patient Mrs. Griselda
attempts to palliate her son's irritation by
explaining that it was the maid's after
noon out, that her daughter was making
candy in the kitchen, and that she her
self had gone out on an errand for fa
ther.
"Why can't we ever have dinner ready
on time?' rave9 father. "The meat didn't
come until late? Why didn't you tell
him what time you wanted it? You
did.' I don't believe you made it very
plain. You're always telling about some
thing or other being late. I should think
> ou could manage to have things de
livered when we want them. l pay
enougu for them."
A great many things happen in this
?world that are nobody's fault?some
things just plain happen, and others are
unfortunate accidents or mistakes. It is
a relief to have some one to blame when

ECCENTRICITY MARKS
THE SUMMER HAT
There is no happy medium in the
most fashionable hats. If they do not
stand about two feet high from base of
brim to tip of feather then they disport
their size in width, and the flat hats of
early summer measure so many inches
in circumference that unless they were
made of light-weight straws they would
be very burdensome to carry, especially
those wider on one sid# than the other.
They take width both ways, some being i
short at front and back and others ex- '
aggerated boat shapes.
Such mammoth brims naturally require
full trimmings, so the feather mount iB
usually made to encircle the crown or to
spread across one side and fall over in
Gainsborough fashion.
A favorite shape for this season is the
turn-up sailor, which is so becoming and I
less trying to wear than the boat or new
bowler shape. Navy blue round sailor
hats with upstanding bows of white picot
edged ribbon are among the smartest
things to wear with the navy tailor suit
or with navy frocks of silk or satin.

"Har\ng tfled many remedl?*

about a week I was entirely cured."

Resinol stops dandruff, itching
scalp and loss of hair
Shampoo regularly with Reainol Soap. Its soothing, healing
balsams insure a healthy scalp, free from dandruff and Itching.
This prevents loss of hair and permits its natural growth and
beauty. Besides, Resinol Soap is one of the very few soaps that
contains no alkali?always so drying and destructive to the hair.
In severe casss of dandraff. scalp-crusts and falling hair, a little Raatool Oint
ment should b? gentl* .nuugrd into the scalp at night, followed by a shampoo
with Resinol Soap in the morning.

APPROPRIATE JEWELRY
FOR THE TAILOR MADE
Harness or trunk bucklfs of silver
?.nd copper are most artistic looking
when used on the leather belts, wnich
girls wear with their short skirts and
shirt waists, and if there is a chatelaine
watch it may he suspended by a fob
of silver or copper to match. The new
shirts have cuffs fitted with old-fasi
ioned links, which should, of course,
agree with the ornaments on the belt.
But most women prefer the wristlet
watch for outci?or purposes.
With the chicken remaining from the
dinner a refreshing salad may be ma3c
for" luncheon. Chocolate nut cake asid a
new dessert are also suggested.
Chicken Salad.
Cut coid roast or broiled chicken irto
small pieces, adding half as much bleach
ed celcry: cut fine and season with salt
and pepper. Mix with French dressing
and set away for an hour or more. Just
before serving stir in some mayonna.se
slightly thinned with lemon juice or French
dressing. Arrange on lettuce leaves and
cover with thick mayonnaise.
Boiled Dressing.
Three beaten eggs, cup of rich ir lk,
two-thirds teaspoonful of dry mustard,
two teaspoonfuls salt, two dashes cay
enne, two tablespoonfuls olive oil or melt
ed butter, half cup of vinegar. Cook until
thick as custard. Strain and keep In a
cold place.
Chocolate Nut Cake.
For the light part, beat together until
very light cup of sugar and one-fourth
cup of butter; add six tablespoonfuls of
milk, half teaspoonful vanilla, heaping
teaspoonful baking powder sifted with one
and a quarter cups flour; add the well
beaten whites of four eggs, and -bake in
two layers.
Dark part?Half cup sugar, three ounces
butter and the yolks of four eggs beaten
together: add ounce of grated chocolate,
one-fourth cup of milk, teaspoonful bak
ing powder ar.d a cup of flour. Mix well
and bake in one layer.
Filling?Three ounces of melted choco
late; add half, cup cream, two tablespoon
fuls butter and a cup of sugar. Boil until
it forms a feoft ball when tried in water,
then add a cup of finely chopped nuts.
Spread between the layers, ice with plain
or chocolate icing and decorate with un
broken halves of English walnuts.
Packable Frocks
Let us rejoice and be glad that our
garments this year are all so "packa
ble." The tub frock is a delectable
thing that embraces materials of all
sorts, and it can be bought very cheap
ly. especially when It Is half made,
which means that you have merely
to run up the back of it with your ma -
chine after you have purchased it.
Lingerie robes, pretty little frocks
of shantung with colored embroidery,
muslin garments, and the others of
delaine, linen aitd xephyr, are all
alike in certain details. They are
narrow and flat, will pack without
creasing and take up about as mucti
room in a traveling case as a full
grown bath towel.
Many of tho cheapest stuffs nre
among Hie prettiest?take, for example,
striped or checked sepbyr. Some of
the chc;ks are quite quaint in black
and white, combined with lines <Tf
blue and preen, rose and green,
mauve and gray, green and beige, the
four tones being arranged together
like a duster check. Stripes are ef
fective in shaded lines of color with
threads of white. The popular Otto
man effects are also shown in this
material in fine or pronounced stripes
of color on white.
For the Hostess.
The al fresco meal In summer is the joy
of the modern enthusiast on fresh air,
and hostesses with tree-sliaded gardens
are often searching for some novel way
of entertaining their guests out of doors.
An effective luncheon or dinner may be
arranged beneath a tree by the simple
method of building a circular shelf around
the trunk, which will serve as a table.
Chinese lanterns and appropriate flags
may decorate the tree. Miniature bas
kets containing flowers can be suspended
from the tree, and each guest who is
asked to take one of these flowers will
find a corresponding bloom at his or her
j plate. The shelf should be massed with
I floral decorations, such as sweet peas and
appropriate greenery
If the meal is to be a cold lunch, the
hanging basket can be filled with appetiz
ing sandwiches, stuffed eggs, and other
delicacies. Utile baskets of strawberries
with sugar and cream should be found at
each place, and each individual hostess
will use her ingenuity to devise some nov
elty in serving the food she offers to her
guests.
On a hot day the representation of an
old well with an oaken bucket resting on
ice and filled with lemonade will be thor
oughly appreciated.
