Callot was the flrat dressmaker who insisted upon a frock that wa.9 belt less. When she Introduced it In Its new shaping, It was considered quite too exaggerated for the ordinary mortal, only those who were satis tied that they po?ses?ed no curves which would bulge 'through the straight simplicity of the Callot frock were brave enough to attempt it. It is a gown for tha individualist, not for the masses. When I saw the collection in Au gust. in Taris, X lound it exceedingly Interesting to watch the way In which these gowns were Interjected in the long defile of newer shapes. It showed that this house had not relin quished its fondness for the idea: j there was a belief that there are suf ficient women in the world io guar antee the econtinuanee of such frocks, t Smart women reduced to smart i thinness, brought them to America for the autuinu season. The typo of gown is shown in the sketch. It is shown in the sketch. It is not a che mise frock in the strict sense. It has drapery across the hips which re lieves the flatness of the spine and abdomen, a fault which is conspicu ous in most of the straight gowns. This froek Is of taupe cloth, hang ing from chin to ankles without gar niture. The collar flares about the face and the simple hem clings to the ankles as the wearer walks. The fea ture of the gown, which differentiates it from what has gone before, is the sleeve. It makes its bow to existing fashion In Its width and length in tuup?-colored mousseline. a fabric which has more stiffness than chif fon. It. along with its competitor, georgette crepe, has taken all the glory from chitfon this winter. Such gowns as these are made, also, in crepe de chine or any (ft the thick crepe weaves which America ha? pro duced with tho same perfection us Prance. If a gown is for the morning or for steady street service, it' is made of one of the kasha weaves or the more perishable duvetine of last winter, which continues !n demand at the shops, Although the kasha weaves and satin broadcloths are considered newer. The art of the dressmaker is taxed to its utmost in this type of frock to arrange with skilled perfection that minimum of drapery on each hip. I have seen some of the most celebrated drapers work over it for hours, yet there are amateurs who can manage it with a twist of the hand. The en tire trick rests 011 the fact that a woman should know liow to manipu late fabric. Too much or too little drapery and the frock is ruined. There lias come about a strong feel ing among women that there should be some sort of drapery Rt the end of | the spine, although the French, who ? ] contributed to this idea, put the I drapery where it will do the least good. Their manner of pulling the I gown across the corsetlujss iigure 1 lacks in grace. ! This fashion is taken up in America I land one sees it on cheap as well asc GOWX OF TA UP I?-COLORED CLOTH. WITH IMMENSE SLEEVES OK TAUPE MOUSSEL1XE. WHICH ARE CATOHT AT THE WRIST AND IIA NO OVER THE HAND. THE FROCK FOLLOWS THE CALLOT SILHOUETTE. expensive frocks, so it Is vibe to point to the menace, becauo it exists in this country. To the amateur it might be said that the folds of drapery should go across the end of the spine and not across the upper part of the hips. They should know that the long: skirt demands a longer waistline, so it is a simple trick to mark off the point of the hips for the beginning of the drapery. It is not necessary to wear a belt, with such frocks, but in an era of exaggerated girdles it is curi ous to see a gown thai lacks one. It instantly stands out from the mass. It may soon ?>? a relief ta b? with out a girdle, for the shops and the public arc doing their best to cover the continent with such trifles. It takes ingenuity to escape from the commonplace. One must be clever to be different from one's neighbor. It is just this thing that will drive the individualist into the bcltless gown, especially when she realizes that the upward drapery on tho hips breaks the figure In a more gracious manner than the tight belt, which reminds ufe of the Borneo ravage as much as it loes of the women of old Carthage.

ELIZABETH KENT, i Making Tea. It Is said that the traveler finds good tea to drink wherever he ffoes In Canada, but poor coffee; while geod eoffee is likely to be served even In a wayside station In the states, but good tea hardly to be had in the best hotels. Both for the pleasure of the palate and the protection of health, it PW8 to make tea carefully. In tlie first place, both teapots?the one in which the tea is infused and that from which it is served?should be hot. The experienced tea maker has a full kettle of freshly boiling -water. She will not Use stale water for tea, be cause she knows that after long boil ing water gets flat; certain gases go off ftom It. She Alls her two clean, well-aired pots half fult of hot water and lets them stand. Than she pours out the heating water from the infu sion pot, measures Into It har tea?a level teaspoonful for oacU cup and one for the pot?and pours the boiling wa ter over the leaves. 8i;e Cover# the pot at once and sets it on the back of the range' to steep for from thrse to Ave minutes, as she likes her tea mild or strong. She never uses water not actually boiling, for she knows that only boiling water releases th? stimulating thelne. She never allows the tea leaves to be boiled, not tor * minute?for she knows that boiling sets free the tannic acid, which In terfere* with digestion. Whan the tea has steeped she emp ties the eervloe pot of it* heating wa ter, strains into it the ffeah tea and serves it at once. She never uses the same leaves for a second Infusion; for that, too, means feeding people tannic acid. Strict economy in measuring the leaves in the first place is the right kind Of economy.

Getting the mend ing equipment together and getting down to the mending is the other half. When one wears unmended clothes it Is usually because they were overlooked when put away, and forgotten until time to put them on. Then time was limited. To mend them meant to find a needle and thimble, the right color thread, per haps a button, a hook and eyo or a tape. These things would take time, and so the garment has to be worn unmended. Especially If you dislike mending and sewing generally, have your mending equipment placed very con veniently. A good idea Is to have a mending corner in your room. This should be where the light is good by day or night. A little table or stand should serve to hold your equipment and there should be a small chair for your convenience. In the top drawer of your stand have a spool case, or the spool case may real on top of the stand. Thes? spool cases may be bought, or you may make one by driving long nails into a smooth board at regular in tervals and enameling it all over with white or colored enamel. The spools can bo put on these nails in plain sight and thread may be taken off without removing them. More than one woman in a house hold of children has fastened scis sors to mending table by means of a chain or tape. This a pretty sure way of keeping them where you will need them. The mending drawer should contain a button bos. a box with assorted sixes of hooks and eves and snappera. There should be tape [of black and white and pieces of plain white material for mending and rein forcing mends. A piece bag. con taining scraps of various garments in use should be at hand. It Is a cunvenience always to leave a needle threaded with white and one with black on the pill cushion In the ! mending drawer. Then when the time I comes that you must mend something in the minimum of time you need not spend precious time threading your needle. Egg and Ham Croquettes. ! Make the usual white sauce for cro- ! quettes. which is composed of two j tabiespoonfuls each of flour and but- i ter to three-fourths cub of milk, sea- j Kun to taste with salt, pepper and grated nutmeg and stir in enough tine j bread crumbs to make it stiff.
