SEASON OF COLORS
MIGHT RAIMENT WORN BY THE LITTLE ONES. White Frockt for Sunday and After? noon No Longer in Vogue?Ribbon Devices Deed in Great Profu? sion?New Sashes. Despite the evident effort at simplic? ity, this Is by no means au economical Bummer for the mother of small daughters. In the first place, it is a season of colors, and colors In wash fabrics are never economical. More? over, it is a ribbon season?and rib? bons wilt under heat, sun and damp? ness. In regard to colors, they are shown In all the fabrics for all sorts of usage. For the past few years all the after? noon and Sunday frocks for little girls have been done in white. This season pale blue, pink, cerise, rose, scarlet hud brown, which, by the way, are mostly warm shades, are much used in all wash fabrics. ThP lawns, batistes, organdies and other transparent fabrics are shown in the paler tints, but in ginghams, chara hreys, linens and galatea cloth, you will find the most vivid of colorings. And when a dress Is of white goods ? or the popular ecru or natural tone. It IB brightened by ribbon or belt of brighter hue. While much is said and written about the ribbon sets, which include broad sashes and enormous hair bows, other ribbon devices are also used in great profusion. Many restless girlies cannot wear a sash tied round the waist. It Is al? ways sagging down to the knees or coming untied. Such wee maids bave the ribbon garnitures literally sewed to their gowns. Sometimes the nar? row ribbon Is run through beading of fancy design and finished with soft knots or what might best be de? scribe, l as a shower bow. A very pretty design of this sort was noted at a recent gathering of smartly dressed children In a private school. The little dress was cut with a short waist, suggesting empire lines, but there was no eon fining belt. Instead, the trimming and ribbon garnitures were applied on vertical lines. The fabric was a soft handkerchief linen, and the trimming a fine batiste em? broidery, with a sharply pointed edge. This was run in strips from the neck and shoulders to a point just above the child's natural waist line, with the points meeting and leaving a diamond abaped opening In the center. Under this joining of fine embroid? ery ran soft strips of white ribbon, each strip finished with .soft loops and long ends. The effect of the floating' ends of white ribbon was extremely pretty on this angular little girl who would have made a sorry figure indeed la a sash. Some of the new sashes are figured or splashed with flowers or done In checks, but the most effective ribbons for the small child are those in deli? cate SClM colors. Brown ties and stockings are very popular for every day; black patent leather slippers and ties arc for dress, and Indeed very few high shoes are Shows for girlies except for rainy-day use. 'ravelinc. etc. The new hat shapes, like those of? fered for older girls, have the droop? ing brims, which are far more hemm? ing to the average juvenile face than the sharply upturned or roll brim. Floral wreaths are used on best hsfs. and plain ribbons, arranged somewhat In scarf fashion, seem popular for play hata and traveling For very best frocks much hand work Is noticed, and often this Is done ta shaped pieces for yoke, cuffs or panels A one piece fror?- is shown In the jl laatrsfton. but with s little trimming at the square-cut seek and kimono alee ?es. together with a sash.

MIXTURES FOR THE BATH. Intxpenilve Luxuries That Can Bs Prepared at Hems. A strong tonic bath is made by mix? ing; a pound of muriate of sods with half a pound of sulphate of soda and s quarter of a pound each of chlorides of lime aud magnesia. These Ingredi? ents may be put into the tub and water poured on to dissolve them. Then the tub must be filled in the usual way. This particular tonic 1 should not be used offener than once a week, or Its effect upon the skin I will be drying. I The girl whose Income Is so limited . that she can Indulge in few luxuries I will be much benefited by an inexpen I slve salt rub every morning. To do this wet the entire body, then rub coarse sea salt, to be bought from any drug shop, over every iuch of the skin. This saline must stay on the skin until the pores absorb It, then the grains will fall off. The face should not be touched with the salt. Not expensive and very delightful is an oatmeal bath made by mixing five pounds of any of the "steam cooked" variety of oatmeal to a pound ; of powdered orris root, a pound of al mond meal and bulf a pound of castlle soap, scraped. A small quantity is then sewed into a small cheese-cloth hag, and one of these may be used several times by tossing Into the bath for 15 minutes before using. PERFUMED BAT* A TONIC Restful snd Excellent for the Skin and Complexion. A delicately perfumed bath of soft? ened water is a tonic that improves the texture of the skin and clears the complexion. The expense of such a tub need not necessarily be large, and the refreshment from It is great, owing to the relaxation of the nerves. A camphor hath Is one to bo com? mended for the depres8ingly warm days of summer. It Is made from a mixture of an ounce of tincture of camphor, half as much tincture of benzoin and two ounces of toilet vine? gar. These should be bottled, shaken and sfter a warm bath Is drawn enough of the mixture added to scent the tub. Such a bath as this may be taken in the morning, at night, or. If preferred. In the afternoon. Better effects will be gained If the immersion is taken at such time as to permit of lying down for half an hour or so afterward. The water should be warm, not hot. aud it is well not to stay In longer than 15 minutes. A delicate person will find that ten minutes is quite long enough. LOW-CUT BODICE. Behold a charming low-cut bodice appropriate for summer dances or dinners. The material is the finest pale pink batiste which Is crossed in surplice fashion In front and draped over shoulders In s modified form of the much used kimono effects. Long, tight sleeves and neck -finish are all over batiste embroidery, the latter finished at closing with a balf-dosen tiny velvet bows of brown. The girdle Is also velvet and n bow of same fur? nishes coiffure ornamentation. Slipper Bows. One of the most sttractlve of the slipper bows now in fashion Is made of very soft, thin silk with three loops on each side. The silk or satin Is of such a soft quality that it does not. when looped, stand out at all. but is arranged to lie quite flat and so ma? nipulated as to look like the pefsls of a flower. The loops are graduated in size so that the lowest ones come oat the furthest. Tiny gold beads are sewed on the ends of each loop and there are three or four strands of these beads across the center of the bow Red slippers will be worn s good deal during the summer. and for some of these there are bows of velvet rib? bon to match the slipper exactly.

SOMEEWHAT HAHU IU When Actor Offered Pawn Ticket in Exchange for Coat Check. In his "Reminiscences and Reflec? tion*."

Sim* Reeves. was ab?)ut to make hi* first api>earance In opern at Drury lane. Murray wa* playing the part of an Impecunioua young "swell" who wa* very hard up. and carried as a property In the play a pawn ticket, which replaced his watch in his coat pocket. As Murray appeared on the scene In evening dress, he thought It obviously unnec essary to change before adjourning to Drury lane, and deposited his hat and eoat in the cloakroom there on ar rival. In coming out. however. In? stead of handing the attendant the numbered ticket he had received, he brought out unconnclously from hts waistcoat pocket the pawn ticket he used on the stage, and gave it with a lordly air to the astonished attendant, much to his own mortification when his attention was drawn to It.

"You know my Parthy Ann married a young fel? low last Wednesday that's been romln" to see her once a week for the last two years." "Yes; I'd heard of It," said the woman with the rolled up sleeves. "Well, we live away out on the South side, you know, and his home Is away out on the North side. Tbey went to housekeepin' the same day." "Didn't they take a weddin' trip?" "Course they did. That's what I was goin' to tell you. They took their weddin' trip on the way home. Got on one of them through cars, you know, and rode the whale 20 miles. All It cost for both of 'em was ten cents.

The waiter in a Superior avenue cafe brought the diner his change, all in such denominations thst the small? est coin was a dime, as waiters always do. Slowly the customer gathered up the coins off the tray?first the hslf dollar, then the quarter, and after that the dimes. Then be looked through the change in his pocket for a nickel to band the waiter, but found none, and the waiter took it for granted that be would get a dime, after all.

John, the eldest son, made no re? sponse, but lnstesd there was a rush snd a Jump down the stairs that brought the whole household into the hall Just In time to hear the front door slam.
