I A ?Sketch
By ETfHAN ARBUCKLE Copyright, mo. by American Presa Association i I naa sketching in the country. With my portable easel before me, aeated on my three legged stool, I was doing a bK of laudecape when a girl came by who aurel.v did not appear rural. Her dress was ragged, ber bat, a straw, darkened by the weather and ?taring a tawdry ornament, white orer bor ahouldera ehe wore a faded ahawl. j Had 1 not wltb tbe habit of an artist, kept an eye open for models I i might not bare noticed a certain kind of beauty under these frayed gar? ments. The girl took off her bat and displayed a wealth of hair, with Just enough red in It to make it gold. The day was hot. and she threw back her shawl. Then 1 noticed that her bodice was cut low and revealed a superb neck eft on a pair of well rounded ahouldera. "Why do you wear that kind of areas at this time of day/" 1 asked. "Because I haven't any other."* i "Do you live about here7" ' "No. 1 don't Uve anywhere? I'm tramping." ; Then she cried. Not a slip In gramroer, not an unre? fined expression, escaped her. She bad evidently seen better days. Indeed, aba might have lived In luxury. "If you will let me make a sketch of ryoM." I said. "1 will pay you well for doing sa" "What will you do with the sketch? IWI11 everybody see It? 1 wouldn't rwiab them to eee It at home." "I will put It In my portfolio. I don't ?think any on? who knowa you will ?rver see IL" She consented, and I made the ?ketch, putting In the colors exactly as ?hey were. 1 gsve her a good price or the poae. which she clutched eager ?Jy. l believe she was hungry. While ? il worked 1 was talking to her wltb a | ?view to learning something about her. j (But she would tell me nothing willing- j ?ty. and 1 was unable to ioduce her to iglr? me any Information by artifice. At last 1 was obliged to let her go her way. But her picture?It was a fine repre-11 sentatlon of "From Affluence to Poe erty"?remained with me. gazing out st me from tne sad eyes, and 1 found myself constantly taking it out from among my other sketches and looking 1 at IL Indeed. 1 fouud myself unBt feel -work, so complete a bold hnd It taken upon me. I slept ibnt nigbt at a farm bouse and woke in the night depressed | by a feeling that the girl was wander? ing about with no home, no money, nothing to eat snd obliged to wear anything abe could get to cover ber. j What a eeliisb world: Why had I not taken ber into my heart and prorlded for her wants? ' Then I remembered t'nnt there la a barrier which prevents young men trorn assisting young women. As to taking ber into my heart, that 1 bad done, though I did not realize what a j foothold she bad gained there. One thing a boot her wua patent. Sbe| ?was pure. No ancb beauty aa beta need go in rags except through purity. ?It was this doubtless that prevented my banishing ber from my mind sad drew tne towsrd her. 1 bsre always bad a habit of read? ing tbe person?is in newspaper?. I do bo because I like to bare my fancy started la weaving stories that tbe few advertised words Ind?cete. One day i 1 read the following: Information wantaat of Gladys Seymour. twenty years oid When last seen tr.a wore ? dar* ni us dreaa. cut low nee*: eyas dark brown ; hair tne aaraa. witn a tin?, cf red In it. I saw tbe subject of my skeicb de? scribed tn tbls personal. I called Im? mediately on tbe advertiser and found s lawyer. 1 showed him my sketch. snd he showed me a photograph. They ?were Identical eaee aa to dreaa. That. 4jf the photograph waa Bilk, that of the sketch rags. Be told me that tbs girt toad been driven from home by the cruelty of s ?tepmotber She bad gone rowing never to return The atep inother bad died, and tbe girl's father. who waa alone, was anxious to find hto daughter, but bad Httto hope of dot ng eo. 1 deferir?Lied H bent for Gladys Sey? mour myself.

Kur the Nucatiou trousseau this little whit?; llueu model will be fouud very useful. With Its square neck of cluny Isce it is s chsrmlug vsriatiou of the oue piece blouse jud the deep bem skirt. This garmeut fastens at the back. Is girdled with a white kid belt, aud Its Oulsii throughout is the tame white llueu with stitched edges. Both the OXB PIECE aaVSM FROCK. meek and sleeves aud skirt are thus tniuuui?. and a uarrow baud tops the (le?-I> bem ou the skirt. So that the skirt will not be too heavy a facing of white batiste lines the dcsep hem at thi? bottom. This is resorted te in many handsome and heavy materials. The lack of hand work on the heav? ier summer funks is distinctly notice? able, even iu France. It is an accepted fact that the pre? vailing skirt is narrow and without plaits, that its heavy bem weights the bottom and that few gathers ap|?ear In tlje one piece boil Ice. in other words, "slim" Is the note of the midsummer season. THE SMART YOKE QUESTION SETTLED. - For Genera! Summer Wear Sheer Linens Correct. - Striped chiffon, looking quite like tucks, will make effective yokiug for the more elaborate gown you intend to get for your ocean voyage, and It will hold its own on the briny deep as well as net. For seashore or general summer wear sheer linens are ns good and quite ss correct for the washable guimpe as are eyelet embroideries. Black dotted net is newer than the square fillet weave for the yoke and sleeves of the all black gown, snd the best qualities of very fine net are so firm ss to require no lining of chiffon to bring added warmth. Embroidered dots of cotton or Unen floss will bring the drees ??lor up to the yoke of plain white or ecro net. Metallic laces and Insertions and cloth of gold nod silver or nets of me? tallic weave are inore perishable in summer time, bat heve bot l*?en aban? doned oo the elsborate gown. Irish Isce in the small pattern of the baby emebet is an ever ready ma? terial sod Is salted to roost dress stuffs for yoke put poses. Cluny insertion? the three snd four loch widths? makes excellent yokes or guimpes with caffs attached by long net sleeves. The widths are eewed to gatker by band and shafted to fit each ludivkdoal yoke pattern and then monated to a ?cottar. PnraMIRy M tkerr nsate point If we escloda tbesr baaaty.
