Vlewpoirv THE WAISTCOAT IDEA BY ANNE RITTENHOtJSE. TODAY'S HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS. By Mary Lee. Spccial <'orrespondecee of The Star. PARIS. July 2T??The waistcoat idea If J one of the strongest over here. Capes, coats and blouses are fashioned with the waistcoat. The shops are selling waistcoat blouses which are of muslin and pique, and some times of linen lawn with striped waist coats in cotton velvet or crash. One has to buy carefullv of these col ored waistcoats, because one must take the suit into consideration. Fortunately, the shops have already taken this into consideration by building the waistcoats in universal coloring; the kind that goes with the coats and skirts that are popular and fashionable. Dark blue and golden brown, or old gold are two colors that Paris is playing with in all cos turnery, and therefore these waistcoat blouses are very often made of stripes that show both colors. There are more fanciful ones, a la Martlne, with green surfaces on which are brilliant red roses, but these are only worn by young women who can afford to exploit daring costumes. One sees few plain blouses of simple white muslin. There is always the waist coat idea attached. This was done last March, but then it was an experiment and now it is an accepted fashion. These Waistcoats Are Long. The novelty about these present-day waistcoats is that they lengthen the waist. When they were first introduced two years ago they gave a short-walsted effect because that was the height of the fashion; today, every woman is striv ing to see how many inches she can gain from the shoulder to the hips. The waistcoat is an aid in that it wrinkles well down over the hips, ha;* long re vers from the shoulder almost to the normal waistline, and is fastened from there with a single row of orna mental buttons. To this waistcoat the muslin sleeves are attached at the arm-hole and extend j to the wrist, and there is. a high white I ? ollar which rolls downward and fills in! the space in front. Others have entire muslin shirt waists on which the waistcoat is mounted, but the whole garment must be in one and fastened down the front. !! FOREIGN FASHIONS FOR AMERICANS ji BY LILLIAN E. YOUNG. Special Correspondence of The Srar. PARIS. July 23.?What a trying task is the living model's! Although, judging from her omnipresent made-to-order smile, she herself does not seem to think so. But fancy parading endlessly through the salons and showrooms of a great establishment cn the warmest mid summer days clad in wintry costumes and bundled up in furs! It is at this time that winter things are shown, as in cold weather the next summer's display is made, and the poor living model spends her life climbing in and out of uncomfortably unseason able wraps, suits and gowns. In one of the most important salons in the Place Vendome. on quite the hot test sort of a day, we sat and watched a parade of wintry-looking models, but i A HA3TO90ME COL.D WEATHKR COS TOME IN BLACK AND WHITE. the things they wore were so lovely and so beautifully fashioned that their lot did not seem such a painful one after all. The one here shown interested me in particular and elicited from the other onlookers subdued murmurs of admira tion. Since the silhouette Is the im portant thing with designers we may doubtless ascribe to it the increasing popularity of black and white effects, for with no other combination can such dis tinctive silhouettes be brought about. We all know that the new silhouette is nar THE NEWEST WAISTCOAT IS LONG AND WRINKLED. There is no diminution in the fashion of the high starched collar. It is worn in every class of society, but the French women are more careful about it than are the Americans. They do not allow it to broaden their neck-line under the ears, therefore one sees a wide variety of shapes and heights. Plain muslin is still preferred to all other fabrics, and some of the dark blue serge frocks worn show a .Martha Wash ington handkerchief of hemstitched 9r~ gandie draped round the neck and fin ished with a black cravat of watered silk in front. row at the shoulders and flares at the feet and the costume sketched was no exception to this rule. It was in white and black with just a touch of brilliant green woven into the figured sash. The bodice of the dress was of white chiffon very simply made by a kimono-sleeved pattern and the sleeve ends were bordered with white fur. as was also the long, full tunic of white chiffon veiling a plain underskirt of black satin, which was mounted at the hips to a white satin top. The bodice and skirt were joined under a swathed bayadere sash of black and white and green brocade. To go with this costume there was a charming short coat and an odd barrel muff of untipped ermine, though a less expensive model was carried out in white velour and was equally effective. Chiffon as a material for street cos tumes is promised unusual favor, es pecially for the long tunics, and aside from the apparent inconsistency of them they are responsible in a large sense for the success of the new calling cos tumes. Women are perhaps wearing a bone or two more in their corsets, but there Is no tighter lacing and the trend of the moment is to appear more or less cor setless. Fluffs Her Pretty Hair ! In almost every story or novel the heroine is described by the ! !. beauty of her hair. A perfectly j plain-looking woman adds a de- h ! lightful charm to her personality ! | by giving just a little attention to j; her hair. Every woman can have fine, soft, lustrous, fluffy hair, easy | to do up, if she will get from O'Donnell's or any drug or toilet j counter a package of Cobb's Sham i poo, follow directions and note I j splendid results. j Absolute cleanliness is very neces- j sary; instead of washing the hair j once a month, the woman who has i beautiful, healthy hair shampoos it each week. With Cobb's Shampoo she finds absolutely no trouble at all: because its use is so very sim ple: it cleanses the hair and scalp: removes the excess oil, dust and dandruff, and rinses out so easily. It makes the scalp healthy, pro motes the growth of new hair and greatly improves the appearance. Use Tyree's Antiseptic Powder It Is safe. Mire and powerful.

In these days, when the piece of Ice which in winter lasted through one day and made a sizable lump well into the next now melts so much in the first two hours that you feel that the iceman cannot have put in the usual size, the ice bill seems well worthy of our atten tion. The housekeeper who never looks after the little things tells the man to fill up her refrigerator when it needs it and lets ! it go at that, and Is only observant when the bill comes in, which is higher than she expected it to be. She looks over the bill, but the ice is listed in varying sizes and at so much a hundred pounds, and as it seems rather impossible for her to know anything about it she sighs, grumbles a little and pays her bill. One Saturday when the icebox was filled up for over Sunday one of these some what careless housekeepers, having a new pair of bathroom scales on which she had weighed everything in sight, decided to see how much the ice weighed. It was a good deal of trouble getting the Ice out of the refrigerator and onto the scales, but the information that she acquired proved worth It. for the ice which filled the refrigerator weighed thirty-eight pounds, and in her bill she had been charged nine times for ice weighing over fifty pounds. # First she sent in the bill for correction, which resulted in a visit from the super intendent. who measured the capacity of the icebox, and while he proved it could hold rather more than she said, as he ap parently made no allowance for air space, he still could not deny her statement of overcharge, which resulted in a reduction of the bill. Then she found out from him the cost of a piece of ice that in average weather would last over until the next day, and left a standing order that a piece of ice of that size and price should be put in daily and once again as large on Satur day. This is almost the only way to keep track of the ice bill, for if the piece varies in weight the charge will vary accordingly, and it is only by a uniform charge that any certainty can be had about the size of the bills. Ice chipped off wastes very much, so it THE DAILY MENU. BREAKFAST. Oranges Cereal Fried Eggplant Buttered Toast Coffee LUNCHEON. Baked Chowder I Egg and Beet Salad 1 Currant Bread Iced Tea DINNER.

Then there Is a kind of paper blanket that is made now that does not come to pieces when it Is wet. It looks clean and white, and it may be spread over the top of the ice to lessen the melting. Obviously the ice can not be entirely wrapped, as it is the proc ess of melting: that cools the refrigerator, but if the cold air comes from the sides and bottom the top can be protected. There cannot be too much said upon the importance of cleanliness In the re frigerator. and unless you know your cook's conscience like your own look well to it yourself. Street frocks are made of sheer ma terial; heavy linens, piques and cotton fabrics no longer hold sway. Organdie, tulle and batiste have taken their places. GOOSEBERRIES FOR VARIETY III a i Gooseberries really might be called an English fruit, for nowhere else as in Eng land have the methods of cooking this berry been so well mastered. The meth ods of growing gooseberries In England, too, have given a better berry there than we get here. Our American gooseberries are good, however, and are convertible into many j different desserts and canned delicacies. One of the good canned gooseberry dishes is gooseberry chutney, made of the fol- j lowing ingredients: Four pounds green , gooseberries (not too ripe), half ounce cayenne pepper, two ounces garlic, two ounces dried ginger, three pounds loaf sugar, two ounces mustard seed, two scant quarts b?*st vinegar. Put the berries, when picked over, into a preserving kettle with one quart of vinegar and sugar and simmer for an hour. Found the seeds, garlic, etc., in a mortar and add to the berries, stirring with a wooden spoon. When well mixed, add more vinegar until the mass is of the proper consistency for chutney. Cool and bottle. To make good gooseberry Jam allow a quart of red currant juice to every eight pounds of ripe gooseberries. Put the cur rant juice with five pounds of lump sugar into a porcelain preserving kettle and heat until the sugar is dissolved. Boil for about five minutes, skim, and add the gooseberries, which have been washed and dried. Boil for about forty minutes, and pour into an earthen bowl. In two days boil it up again until it looks clear and then pack it in Jars. Cover with paraffin.
