Orp-spoudei:--e .?f Th" Star. NEW YORK. February 4, 11*14. : ? 'hooding apparel for a wedding is not ' easy. Th. subject frets the dressmaker j a- well as the woman who must wear the j gown. The bride-to-be has the added nuisance of deciding on the bridesmaid's j frocks as soon its she lias giveu the j order for her ovv n. The mother of the bride nfust be be comingly turned out and if there are j f!??\ver j:ir!s and staff bearers to have ; cost mm s. the wardrobe for a wedding! turns out to bu a serious affair. fn thi- day of overturning traditions. ; even tin- bride does not follow the age- j oid fashion of wearing an a'l while j go1.'!'. Sin- i.~ allowed, rightly or wrong ly. tin- us of silver and gold, of rhine- j stones and pearls. of ornaments that 1 in other days were not considered proper for a git I at the altar. One of the recent millionaire brides j won a gown of silver cloth at a tabu- j lous price whi'-h was draped with rose jM?int -ace in the shape of a tuni? . short i in front and long in the back. Between i tin- two fabrics was a layer of shell pink ! tulle to soften the harshness of the sil- , \ ? ?? cioth. Another rich young woman wore a: gown of rare lac . It was drained over ? heav\ ivory tinted satin, v rich is in i itself a purchase of merit and difficulty 1 tries*- day.-. >>till anot'm r girl marrying; from on- rich family into another wore ; a six-humired-dollar gown of satin with j a court train of old lace. Contrast these prices with tiiox of ten : years ago when a well-to-do girl protest- i ed .it tin- idea of paying SluO to a dress- i maker for her wedding frock and ended j by having it made in the house. Such ; was the oft-repeated custom a decade j ago, and many good looking gowns were turned out by the clever seamstresses I who. with tie- aid of an artistic person. draped and ornamented a frock to suit ' the individualiU of the wearer. The department stor? - an i specialty s h ? >ps decrea>'-d thi** trade by two-thirds, t'-e- it was easier t?. hop iiit^ a .-tore and buy a copy ?,f French model than it j was to iM.ther wit!: t.> making of it at home. Good Wedding Costumeiy. Possibly the girl, or her mother, who j must take up the question of what to 1 wear at a wedding in the near future might be assisted in making a choice by a summary of some gowns worn at a wedding where every one was w.-11 dressed. The bride's gown was of that ivory ?tinted satin which is prettier than the dead white dy. it does not show ;p tin pallor that the usual bride has on the wedding day. The skirt whs slashed in front to show ;i ruffle of lace which was, gathered into small silver roses. At the back, below the corset it was looped under on a bias line to giv* that Prenu-t effect that has redeemed the Hat. tight back of last year. The blouse was nothing mo: than a loose kimono with short sleeves from which came wrst-hngth sleeves of lace over chiffon. At th. hand these flared into miniature minarets, and were cord ed at the edges. ll?r veil was arranged in a coronet across the brow and linished with Dutch ear tabs at the side. Across the hem was a border of lace Thf- bride's mother wore a trained gown of silver and gray brocade, with its skirt looped up in the same way at the back as Premet advises, and its surplice bod ice was edged with brown fur that stood ; away l'rom the neck at the back, and ran to the waist in front. Her hat was i of cloth of silver veib-d with white tulle and touched off with a huge pink rose. ; IJJie Bridesmaids' Gowns. Those who attended the bride wore taffeta frocks in that light shade of yel low that fashion makes much of today. The low er skirt'was narrow and the pan- i niers, two of them, were looped up into j huge puffs. The bodice was quite slen- j der for this day. and its deep U-shaped j decolletage was outlined with brown fur j and tilled in with lace. Tile hat that went with this gown had } a red velvet crown, a lace brim and two j huge red roses at the side. As taffeta is to be on? of the favorite ; fabrics lor those whose figures can bland it. It is as well that all brides-elect 1 should look into its possibilities for some of their wedding eostuniery. Th? hat i<i the sketch. l?y the way, was made in . Paris for a spring bride. It is one of j the new turbans made of dull, dark blue ' duvetyn with two Huffy ears of white ] fur as trimming. Money Saved by Making Your Cough Syrup at Home Takm Hut a Ff?

Kvery host i ess surelv realizes that t!??? guests at her | house are either livelier or duller than , they are at other people's houses. And it they are livelier she may put the fact down, not entirely to her method of en tertaining. but partly to her method of 1 ventilating:. For one thing, fresh air is ' an aid to digestion, and indigestion makes : people sleepy. Often the lethargic dozi ness that insists on overcoming one after i a hearty meal is only an evidence of in- j i digestion, which plenty of fresh air would ? | conquer. I It is difficult to ventilate a small dining ; i room that is too filled with dinner guests. < The windows?all of them?should be; opened wide'for several hours in the aft-.j ernoon. but they should be partly closed long enough before dinner so that the; room can become normally warm. Noth ing" is more Inhospitable than to have j rooms where women will appear with i bared arms and shoulders only halt warm. At least one window should be left open a little :?t tin top and a little at the bottom before and during dinner. ' A screen can <>e so placed that no , draught is felt. A fireplace is an aid i<> hospitality, not j only because of the hospitable glow given, b> a. good open fo-e. bai bvcause of the ' fresh air w!?:??: Mm- s>n-ti.?u from the chimney draws into the room. A window j ill an adjoining room, through which thet fresh air can come, should be left partly ? open. Sever b-a ? e a door at the head of a stairway open when there are guests on the lloor below, unless all doors entering the hall are closed. A door open at the head of a stub a> can create such a draught that it rings r? al discomfort. | perhaps danger, to any on< sitting in its ? path.

It is said that both}1 Napoleon and Josephine strongly disliked j artificial scents, so thai the. only thing j i:.? y would have burned in their rooms j was vinegar. Today, if after airing a I room seems close- perhaps because of a j heavy, moist atmosphere outdoors? try ? bracing the atmosphere in this way: Fill? a cup with boiling water and drop four or five drops of oil of lavender in it. The resulting freshness is invigorating. 'Copyright, 1>14.) Breakfast Rolls.

"AMERICAN FASHIONS. * * BY LILLIAN E. YOUNG. It gives one more or less of a chill to view the diaphanous .summer gowns, straw hats and lacy parasols displayed In shop windows, l?ut it is nice to think t>f the warm, sunny spots where this same summery raiment is being: worn, while we an- making1 ourselves ?weather proof with furs and wrapt".

A summer hat designed for the south ern climes is reprr.scntod in the sketch as fairly typical of what will be worn. The shape is odd, but decidedly at tratcivc. It is developed in white Milan and has a rounded, close-fitting crown hugged by an upstanding: rolled brim all around, except on the right side, where it extends considerably outward. The inside of the brim is faced with white chiffon ttgured with small I >r? sden rose garlands. An inch-wid?- old blue pieot edged ribbon encircles the crown, and is tied at the right side where the brim ' turns outward. For trimming there are two largo natural looking Fr< nch roses, arranged to stand above the brim one in front and one at the left. It is essential that these do not stajid perpendicularly upright. HINTS ABOUTHIS" EVENING CLOTHES Evening trmisers should be set high on the body to allow for the short coat and waistcoat, and they must suggest the narrow look from top to bottom, espe cially above the knee?below it they have a straight hang. In spite of the prediction to the con | trary, one or two braids in perfect line ! down the side, without the slightest curve to the bottom, are quite correct. Where two braids are preferred they should be put on to part at the side pockets, one following the seam and the other the pocket. The correct material for the formal evening coat and trousers is the dressed ! <>r undressed worsted in black?or even in t dark blue. The coat should fit the body snugly under the arms, so that it stays in place, no matter what the posture. The coat, of course, is short waisted, with the waist seam encircling the body. It is best to keep away from all bizarre effects with waistcoats, especially the i white evening waistcoat. Washable ma- : terials are preferable for these, and they I may be plain to match the shirt or i:i some of the conservative pique patterns. ? Single and double breasted waistcoats are both in good style, bi.it th.-> should be ? made shorter and with a higher and yet i more rounded opening than was seen last j year for formal evening dress.

I and so on. so that when the mold is j turned out the white spots will appear ; at regular intervals. This pudding is i best served with whipped cream.

Cake Making and Baking. It is well to say at the outset that if t ake mailing is to l?e a success only the best ingredients should be used. Cooking butter !s sure to betray its presence ami coarse sugar will make the cake h< avy. It goes without saying eggs must be f resh. When baking powder is used for the ris ing pastry flour will be better than bread flour, because it contains less gluten, a sticky substance. Everything from flour to the oven should be in readiness before the cake is begun. If this is neglected the amateur especially is apt to leave something out. Unless the recipe calls for anything different, the usual method is to sift the flour with the baking powder and salt, then to cream butter and sugar to gether. Xext the eggs are beaten, yolks and whites separately, and the yolks added to the creamy mixture. Another good mixing and then flour a."J milk are added alternately. Water will n.uke the cak? lighter than milk, but the latter makes it richer. I," nuts, fruit or citron are to go in they must be well figured first i?> pr? vent their falling to tl<- bottom of the cak? . The whites of the eggs whisked thoroughly are folded in at the last moment. In making sponge cake sift sugar as well as flour and cut in the whites <?f the eggs not stopping for :l second until the eake is in the oven. If flour is very cold warm it slightly be fore makintr a cake. Lard is better than butter for greasing the tins HH-cause butter burns quickly); ti eii a dusting of flour shoufd be given nnd the - :;k<' poured in. I'ans for sponge cake are not greased, only floured, but in my opinion the safer plan is to line the pans with greased paj*ei. That found in cracker box^s will answer. The troubles of the cook are by no means ? when the cake is ready for the oven. The success depends quite a good deal upon the baking. If the heating is by coa'. then the fire should be in such a condition that it will not be necessary to touch it for an hour. ?'oal should not b. put on whiltj a t ake baking, though the experienced cook <:ten tempers the heat (when too fierce) ? balding a little coal. The safe plan. "3 hov.evor. is to pat a pan of cokl water in the oven. Stninge cakes require a mo?i 1 erate oven and so do mousses. .* I cakes must i?e haked uuickb Fruit ? Ki j sh??u!d he. put into a v? ry slow ovrn the average cake a rairlv hot one. The ovrn door must he shut very g'Ut* lv from first to last. A sudden jar ?: 5 cause the cake to sink in the middle, sup* posing it has not fully risen. A draught, too. is dangerous. NVver move- a until it lias reached its ftil 1 height P? taking a cake from the pan loosen th*i edges with a knife, and when par*;/ cooled turn out. THE DAILY MENU.
