ewpoiivt | THE POPULAR WASH BLOUSE A BLUE HANDKERCHIEF LINEN" BLOUSE. WITH ROLLING COLLAR, SHOULDER YOKE AND SET-IN SLEEVES. BY ANNE BXTTENHOUSE. Special Correspondence of The Star. NEW YORK. June 29.-There is much talk In Paris concerning the ad miration of the French woman for the simple wash blouse: but as the history ot the shirt waist is recorded, it seems that it is the American who developed a fondness for over-ornamentation and not the French woman. Tt was almost impossible to believe that the masses of women had as much leis ure five years ago as the miles of em broidery and lace inserts on wash waists proved they had. The so-called plaxza brigade was at it from morning until night For a decade it was as much a madness as dancing is today, and one's grace increased by the work. Tn the beginning of the madness* one had no reason to be so impatient with this constant employment of the needle on muslin for this garment, but when the country was flooded with overloaded blouses, when the original fashion was so perverted from its source that instead of having a garment strictly for simple uses we had a garment which was suffi ciently trimmed to serve for formal occa sions. then the onlooker lost heart. This practice lapsed through the pop ularity of the chiffon blouse, which rival ed the wash affair, and finally sent it into oblivion. The blouse-to-match-the skirt slogan carried colored fabrics into high favor, and the machine-made imi tations of the genuine handwork were first thrown on the bargain counter, and finally even machines stopped making them. So much for the history, which was turbulent only in America. France adopt ed the white wash blouse from us, as she did the tailored suit, elbow sleeves for hot weather, thick-soled shoes, mannish pumps, the turnover collar, the sweater, the sport coat and a few other things, not vital, but interesting. Bhe kept the wash waist simple and handmade, and we have adopted this method and form of making It. Beturn to the Shirt Waist. Probably the old American name for the garment has given way entirely in j favor of the French word "blouse." often j pronounced in the French way. But i what matters the pronunciation if the present garment is a reversal to type? j And not only ars the new blouses sim ple, albeit very well made, but they are < in colors. Bright colors, too; the kind that made the summer gayer and give character to a white serge or linen suit. And they fasten down the front, no sign of a return in any garment to the tortuous ways of old. There are yokes across the entire shoulders, and set-In sleeves with arm holes outlined with Guard your children by cleaning your horn* with CN A tableepoonfnl of ? to a gallon " to aU yea need ate for general cleaning.

The buttons are of pearl Instead of crocheted thread, and the sleeves are long, for which the designers be thanked. The cuffs are wide turnover ones fas tened with links, costly or cheap, and the neck, need it be said, is finished with a high rolling collar. (That phrase should stand in type to be daily used whenever the word collar is mentioned.) Handkerchief linen, aJong with organ die. has been revived into full fashion. The former is used for waists, the latter for gowns and neckwear. There are many counts against that especial weave of linen, for one must have a full purse to have many such blouses, and an iron around the comer to press it every time It 1s worn. The very new waists have these high collars made of striped linen or muslin. A rather attractive change from the all white, for. if the entire world of women kind will insist upon the one kind, do let us have some variety, somewhere. These stripes go around, and, up and down?not, however, on the same collar! The passion for waistcoats which holds in Paris has not spread to America. The imported blouses which have small pique attachments above the belt, and fasten in front with four fancy buttons, do not sell well here* and it is possible that the , American will not take them up until fall. ! I Steak Dumplings. Cut the steak into finger pieces and Jet simmer in a very little slightly salted water for half an hour, or until tender, then lift from the gravy and let them drain well. Boil some pota toes until tender, drain, season with salt, pepper, a little butter and a little hot milk; mash and beat up very smooth and make them into a paste with a little flour. Roll each strip of steak in a piece of the potato crust, put them into a dripping pan in which a little butter or drippings have been melted, and let them bake slowly about an hour, or until the potato crust is well browned. Season the gravy in which the steak is stewed with salt, pepper, a few drops of onion Juice and a little tomato catsup; add flour to thicken slightly, cook until smooth! and serve in a gravy boat. Chopped chicken, or veal, or other tender cold cooked meat may be substituted for the steak, and this makes a very sub stantial luncheon or breakfast dish. Poached Eggs in Milk or Cream. Butter an egg poacher and hatf fill the pan beneath with boiling water. Break in the required number of eggs, and as soon as they begin to grow firm add two tablespoonfuls of milk or cream. When firm, place upon rounds of buttered toast and season wth but ter, salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley. Roll Sandwiches. The bread for these should be fresh and should "be wrapped for several hours in a wet cloth, wrung out of cold water and then with a dry cloth out side of this. Cut off the crust, cut in thin slices and spread with any pre ferred paste. These are served at both receptions and with the salad at din ner, and may be nothing more than plain bread and butter sandwiches They may be fastened with either a toothpick or a narrow ribbon, but some vegetable fiber is best. Club Sandwich. This is one of the heartiest kinds of sandwiches and may constitute almost a whole meal. It may be three stories high, and the bread is most commonly toasted and cut across Into diamonds or triangles, sometimes after the filling is put in. This consists of a lettuce leaf, on top of this a thin slice of breast of chicken, and then very thin broiled ham or bacon, with such individual finish of pickle or olives as the taste suggests. Pumpernickel Sandwiches. Put a very thin slice of pumpernickel bread between two thin buttered slices of white bread. Boston brown bread cut not quite so thin may be used in the same way. Meat Sandwiches. Almost any kind of cold meat may be cut in nice, thin slices and used for sand wiches. Rare roast beef for this purpose may be seasoned well with salt and pep per and tomato catsup, and then have some thin slices of dill pickles added. Chicken and turkey always furnish the daintiest of meats for sandwich use and good mutton is not to be scorned. Bavarian Cream. Two tablespoons of gelatin, one-half cup of cold water, one can of grated pineapple, one-half cup of sugar; one ta blespoon lemon juice, three cups of whip ping cream (three cups should make about six cups when it Is whipped, if it is good and heavy cream). Soak the gelatin in cold water. Heat the pineapple. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the lemon juice and soaked gelatin. Stir In the gelatin thor? oughly to make sure It is all dissolved. Then chill?set in a pan of ice water. When It begins to thicken fold in about one-quarter of the whipped cream. Set in ice, and when that has set a little stir in another one-quarter and so on until all the cream is used. Put in bread tins and set overnight In ice box.

Many peo ple have completely destroyed the natural beauty and texture of their hair by using ordinary soaps and shampoo preparations that contain harmful and injurious alkaline mat ter. A continued use results in dry. brittle, lusterless hair that cannot be dressed in an attractive fashion. You can easily avoid trouble of this kind by using Cobb's Shampoo. It will rid the hair of all dandruff, dust and excess oil, and will leave just the proper amount of natural oil to insure perfect hair health. It gives your head a delightfully cool and cleanly feeling. It con tains nothing injurious and is ab solutely harmless to the hair. Cobb's Shampoo is a fragrant powder that bursts into a rich, creamy lather instantly when used with a little water. It not only thoroughly cleanses the hair, but makes it soft, glossy and fluffy? easy to do up. Get a package at O'Donnell's or any drug or toilet counter. I4's in expensive.

The latter formed the Columbine tunic which was in two pointed flounces mounted at the hips, and also the pointed bibs that covered the lower part of the blouse. The blouse of embroidered crepe was cut with a pointed neck in front and finished with a soft white mull ruffling. The sleeves were elbow length and simi larly finished. The taffeta, forming a bib at either side, ran up in two points in front and in back and below the girdle of green chiffon there were short point ed vest ends showing just irt front. The top of the skirt was quite full, and pouched over the tunic flounces, then given a hip sash of green chiffon that tied in back with long ends. The lower skirt was quite plain and was mounted, as were the flounces and pouched upper portion, to a smooth foundation of white lawn, nainsook or any other flrm, thin, wash fabric. The hat worn with this frock might easily be made at home. It wrfs of white moire or bengaline with a slightly gathered round crown and a narrow brim rolled at the edge. White taffeta ribbon cov ered with green chiffon encircled the crown and was tied in a jaunty bow at the back. A Baked Mince.
