No wonder the good old summer time 1 of filmy tulle with a linen shirt-waist suit
always; welcome, for does It not usher !n would have much to do with spoiling its
that'-most delightful girl or the year tne perfect effect.
shlrt-wafct girl who always looks so re
freshingly cool and so delightfully comfort
able? She Is good to look at. interesting to talk
to, and for a day's outing the"1 best chum
in the world. 'v
That the shirt-waist' girl Is pretty -apt
to be good-natured has become a matter
of history.
And, believe It or not, much of her sunny
disposition depends upon her clothes.
She' knows1 she looks cool and she feels so.
She realizes that she Is smartly and ap
propriately gowned, and yet she Is per
fectly comfortable: consequently, the Is In
for a frolic and sees only the Jolly side of
life.!
Thl Is the typical young summer girl,
and right here let it be understood that the
shirt-waist suit that most convenient of
costumes has a desirable way of disguls
lng a woman's age.
Thtre hare been actual cases where It
has been credited wllU taking ten years off
a woman s age.
With the cotton shirt-waist suits the em
broidered linen belt and collar is the best
taste.
A leather belt la the next choice and the
very newest thing right now is the wide,
unllned leather belt.
It must be sufficiently pliable' to cling to
the figure and It must be twice as wide as
It was last summer.
Pretty bolls of linen shoe strings, say In
blatk and white, are a novel accessory to
the shirt-waist girl's costume.
Belts of stitched taffeta are also worn
and ery many linen bells, embroidered in
French knots.
White calf belts, fastening with heavy
mother-ol-pearl harmss buckles, are un
other rad of the moment.
.Many of ilie smarte.-t looking shirt-waist
suits are tr.mmed with pearl buttons, and
when the shirt waist does not fasten la
trout willi these bi, effective buttons then
It fastens up the back with tiny pearl buttons.
Toe new shirt waists are all cut to givo

cHIRTrWAlST SETS ARE
ATTRACTIVE ACCESSORIES.
Shirt-waist sets are among the attractive
diess acce.-soi le.i to tempt the modish girl.
'ihey cont-'Ut of buttons for the front of
the shirt wa.st, curt bunoiis and belt pin,
und s-onietlmes a belt buckle to match, and
thtte little plna for" fastening the stock are
audwl.
Tnere Is simply no end to the variety of
thti-e flurt-waist sets.
come are of imiiui.on turquoise set In
sliver rlnib; otbexs are of jade in an an
tique golu setting, and still others are of
giay-ltuished tirvcr. representing flowers
such as awect pea, carnations and viofe'.s
in anape.
Tile gun-metal sets studded with rhlne
stoi.es ate aiso much In favor.
The smart-looking shirt-waist girl is Just
as particular in selecting her hat as sne
to guarantee Its popularity.
However, it Is not only their youth-giving-
quallties that make the shirt-waist
suit appeal so strungiy to the summer girl.
The new dresses In themselves, merely for
thelr,beauty, are a deilght to every woman.
They are twice as good-looking as they
"were, last year and twice as elaborate.
HAND EMBROIDERY AND'
INSETS OF COAREE LACE.
This season they show much hand m
broidery and many Inlets of coarse, effect
ive, lace.
'Hie skirts are made unllned and are in
tins' newest approvnl cut, clinging closely to
the figure over the hips and showing much
fullness towatd the hem.
All the shirt-waist suits have a marked
tendency to show to Its very best advantage
the fetching French curve figure, which
makes this year's summer girl the trimmest
and most shapely girl we have had for
injur a long yea..
It' Is" the Rosalind, a simple little device
for holding belt of skirt, waist and under
skirt exactly in' the right place, which gives
this rauch-to-be-deslred French curve.

New York, JIay. One hundred hectares'

Wilson, a botanist connected with the New
York Botanical Gardens, whose collecting

'Jand no country offers so many possibilities
of success to the energetic man with little
