DRESSES IN SIMPLE STYLE
FAVORED FOR STREET WEAR
Yil. JLi
a pi.kasjm; ?
By LABORDE, Pans.
While many rather extreme styles are
favored for milady's, dress when she
graces some notable reception or "gives a
dinner, the best dressed woman prefers
more simple modes when slxe sallies
i forth from her home. Many, of the
most becoming dresses for street wear
are developed in lustrous taffeta, and
while black meets the approval ,gf. those
who realize its value as a background
j for emphasizing the beautiful color of
| their hair or to bring out the delicate
tints of their complexion, many of the
j younger women favor navy blue. This
I shade seems to continue its popularity,
I although at the present rirne there are
| some very beautiful greens and rich
j browns.
| It is the color chosen for the gown
illustrate** 'i his model, while inspired
by the creations of a long-ago period, is
so restrained in design that it will un
doubtedly meet the approval of the most
critical dresser.
j Tne bodice is developed hi folds of
silk that are drawn toward the fropt
I and loosely knotted at the waist. This
is raised upward so that ;i triangular
piece of the white corded silk v"<2St is ap
parent. and on this segment a solitary
pink rose is embroidered in silken
thitads. A soft frill of tulle circling
the neck rather high in the rear* finishes
the vest, while small turn-back cuffs,
with touches of embroidery, complete
the sleeves. ?
The skirt is designed with three shap
ed tun es adorned with fine pJaitings of
silk that suggest the charming modes
of long ago. However. " beneath these
simple draperies the skirt narrows to
ward tlie ankle in very different style
from the fashions of an earlier age.
A simple chaptau accompanies the
gown. Fashioned from milan: it is
trimmed with a narrow band of lac
quered ribbon that marks the junction
of the brim and the crown, and at the
I center back it is tied in a quaint little
i bow. Two clusters of burnt o>ftrich
' feathers that art designed to Imitate
I aigrettes lend a dashing appearance to
I the hat.
i (Gabardine is another fabric much
> favored for the smart street dress.
Frocks made from this material are
frequently trimmed with black satin or
ecossais plaids, while the dainty collar
of organdie, tassel trimmed or deco
rated with small pipings of colored mus
lin is usually in evidence with such
.reations.
The sash, however, need not gird the
waist, lor in some of the smartest

; motleys it appears beneath the knee,
where it holds the draperies in position.
Sometimes a narrow band of plaid or
Roman!, stripe silk is wound around the
waist two or three times and then the
long ends fall straightly at the side or
baMk;' indeed, there is unending variety
in the fashioning of this adornment.
Street'shoes, pumps and walking shoes
are made of dark red leather, edged with
black and mounted with Jet buckles. Also
there are blue and green leather slippers
The smart combination of checked and
pl^in materials has crept into children's
fashions in the form of the smocklike
bodice and the little skirt of plain ma
terial.

! LOOKING AFTER THE
YOUNGER GENERATION
Mental and moral training is. of course,
of the highest importance. hut so is
physical training, and tho one reacts on
j the other. Often when a child is ? dif
ficult. peevish, ill-tempered, the primary
cause is purely physical, and a judicious
diet or dose of some simple remedy will
work wonders in restoring the mental
j balance.
Tf normal children are properly fed and
trained To regular habits from infancy
the;, seldom require any medicine.
It is far easier to prevent than to cure
habitual constipation, which is a most
serious condition, that will give :-jse to
all sorts of evils, and pe-'naps lead to
| Permanent ili-hcalth. The simplest l-.ieth.
od is always to include some digestible
| frtiit in the breakfast fate, an apple,
either raw or baked, an orange or ba
nana. or stewed prunes or rhubarb, anv
of which a re preferable at this meal to
marmalade, jam or jelly. Abo,? all th?
1 child should be trained to observe a regu
! lar retiring rule, till it is established
! as a natural and unconscious habit. The
fore of constipation demands much care
, and patience. and it is useless to give oc
casional doses of more or less nauseous
I medicine.
-Ml children hate being dosed, and the
process often upsets them, so tjiat th*
medicine does far more harm than good
| Rut it is quite easy to administer the
necessary dose without the patient lcnow
i ing anything about it. Even castor oi!
I is nor, obtainable in tasteless capsules,
and p most excellent medicine, which
j most children like, is prunes stewed with
half an ounce of senna leaves to half a
! pound of fruit. Two or three of these
with a little of the sirup given before
breakfast every morning will often work
a complete cure if persevered with. Th?
number of prunes given should be in
i creased or diminished as required.
I Children's love of sweets is a natural
instinct, lor sugar supplies both heat and
nourishment to the system. The sweets
I can be plain chocolate or sugar, given
in moderation, and at a proper time, afte:
dinner preferably, never in large quanti
ties or before meals. Children who are
wc'l nourished seldom exhibit an in
ordinate craving fey- sweets, which is a
sign of internal trouble. All little folk
require a certain amount of fat food, but
nearly all dislike fat meat.
Thin and delicate children should have
a little cream added to their morning
bread and milk, or porridge, and cod live"
oil is most valuable for them. (Jood fresh
beef dripping from a large joint is excel
lent for little folk, who generallv like it
and consider it a "treat."
The Shoppers Notebook.
New sequined fruits for hats are not
expensive and quite smart. A beautiful
: os;. apple, with stalk and leaves glisten
ing with ^sequins, should have a moss
green hat. as a background to show it
in most charming aspect.
Glass and metallic flowers fo.- hat deco
rations are lovely, a'so. and they have
c??or values that make them combine
most effectively with fabrics of harmon
izing hues.
Corsage flowers are larger, particular- I
ly some of the velvet begonias. Futurist
blossoms are often pleasing?a fact that i
tells of improvement in this form of art.
Paper serviettes, in pretty designs and
delicate colors, are now considered quite
the thing for informal supper parties, I
particularly when the affair takes place j
at one's summer cottage. The paper '
doilv of today is something far removed I
from its predecessor. It is generally |
delicate and lacy, with your initial in I
one corner, looking as if it were workeo. i
Some New Veils.
Colored veils are worn again, those in
net with designs like curving stems being
preferred to small dots or sprigs. With
an entirely black toilet a mauve or
saxe-biue veil adds a note of color and I
may. be more becoming than a black one. j
The unkind wind that. d:?appointed ot I
blowing off one's hat. revenges itself by i
pushing it crooked, may be circumvented '
by the skillful arrangement or the veil, i
worn long enough to'be full beneath the
chin and tightly secured at the bae.i of 1
the neck, as we.i as on the top of the |
toque. !
llace in large patterns is popular for
veiis and net witn very line weu, horde*-j
ing on the impalpable. The . yashma t.
which veils the lower part of the face,
but leaves the eyes uncovered, has been
seen, but it is a question if this oriental
style will ever become general here. One
of the uses of a veil is to shelter the
eyes "from dust. The yashmak-does not
do this. And it is t hi civ over the mouih.
always a disagreeable feature in a veh.
These reasons would not wci^h w th fash

FOREIGN FASHIONS
FOR AMERICANS |'j
BY LILLIAN E. YOUNG.
s>p??. lal Correspondof Tur Si?r.
VENICE. Italy. April V2. 1!?M.
Quite the newest revival in the fash
lion world i.s the cape. Pa Is has -ei the
! style. 01 rather resurrected it. nml it is
bound to meet with approval, not on!>
because it makes a good, serviceable sort
of wrap, but because ;t seems dee'.dedi?
new. due. no doubt, to the fa t that it
has remained so long in the background
There is a saying:, apropos of recurrent
styles: "Keep a tbrng seven years and
you will find it useful again." Personally
; I have never tested th:3. though it seems
j within the hounds of reason, but in this
. case I'm sure it mus* be a good twelve
J or fifteen years since ?ojn?n wore rapes,
j They w?-:e ugly things, too. according
| CAPES ARE THE I.ATEST FA.N'CV.
to present-day standards, and unless the.
had been greatly improved on and ex
tensively remodeled, as they have been,
more than likely we would not have
shown any interest in them for another
fifteen year?.
At any rate, the new ??n^s are altogeth
er charming, and 1 have seen several
exceptionally good models along the Ri
alto. There is ihe "Alilltaire." usually
developed in black velours or satin and
cut with the right side longer in front
I than the left, that it mav jp Thrown over
I !
the left shoulder in true military fash
ion. Others are of charmeuse and taffeta,
with shirred or fluted headings as trim
mings and cut with a sloping line to the
back. Some are held in place by means
of straps crossed over the bust and hook
ed about the waist, while others, usually
of the more tailored variety, have little
vest sections attached to the sides, which
fasten with smart crystal buttons. Still
another style shows a brief set of eye
lets arranged over the bust, through
which a silken lie with tasseled ends is
laced.
The one 1 have sketched is of purple
souffle de soie. one of the new silken
materials. Its edges describe rounded
cutaway lines to the back, where they
extend to the knees, and by way of
trimming there is the outlining ruffle
of seif-inaterial cut with a saw-tooth
edge.
The hat is made to match and may
be of thp same mater:3l or of chiffon
over maline. as is often the case. It
consists merely of a round, gathered
cap crown, with an encircling upstand
ing frill that towers in back and runs
off to nothirtg in front.
' The dress here shown is of cream
colored voile and heavy fllet lace. The
lace forms the upper part of a kimono
sleeved blouse and the second flounce
of the skirt. The lower part of the
blouse and the first tunic flounce are oi
voile laid in small pleats. The lower por
tion of the skirt is plain. Purple chiffon
is used for the girdle and a pink corsage
rose is thrust in the front, making a
pretty contrast.

dandelions: pare the roots and stale
