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
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
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.

I hv< ry hostess realizes, or ought to real
j ize, the value of fresh air. 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 ?
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 ?

tiou that pulls I ij? ? stale air out of the

Of cours--. fiesh air is essential to
health and co-rforl. at least in our mod
ern opinion, ia the oid days it was cus
tomary to burn various scents to freshen
the air of the rooms, which were, in
cold weather, cessaril? shut up for the j
sake ??.' wurmtii. 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.

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".
Tt takes considerable skill and judicious
discernment to select and exploit styles

things destined to unpopular-it: and short
.Milliners hav? the advantage of the
situation, as n season's head wear is
usuaUy confined to an approximate uni
form/ty in size, though shapes and trim
mings are more diverse.
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.
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
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.

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.
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. .*

too. is dangerous. NVver move- a
