TIIE ST. LOUIS KErT'BLTC: SATURDAY. AUGUST 13. 1004.
FASHION APPROVES OF SILK AND LISLE GLOVES While Worn With' All Morning Glace Kid for Dress Wash Cloth Suits. m .' ' t i i A A PRACTICAL AND DAINTY ROOM GOWN. TMa town is made of one of the .lew varieties of fare Stilus elder. The color ing la champagne with the mottled design and stripe In onion brown Dirk-brown Ilk, appliaued with a narrow white Eilk braid, U used to trim tlio collar and cuffs of this attractive comfort garment. Whits cotton and Hale thread gloves are now considered quite appropriate to any morning or afternoon costume, and the ono-tlme prejudice against them seemr to have quite disappeared. The glace kid gloves are undoubtedly smarter for very formal occaalona, but for general wear during the morning and for drhlng a cot ton glove la quite appropriate. In town, as well, and even for traveling, thee gloves are now smart with any shirt wn'pt costume, but with a cloth costume Lid loves must be worn. ( White washable kid gloves make an x cellent Investment, for, although thn flrrt expenditure la larger there Is no compari son In the length of time that they can b worn. Fori riding and drhlng the white chamois glorea are smart and thee. too, wash well. The water ahould be warm, not hot. and either Ivory or wool soap may 1m ued. It Is best to wash the gloved on the haul, and then, after drying them off sllghtlv with a towel or cloth, they should b" hu'a no to dry. In the sun, if possible. This li also the beat way to wash cotton and lisle thread gloves, as by keening them on the hand they are-prevented from shrinking The plain cotton gloves with the three rows of white machine stitching on ire back are smarter than any of the cicn work gloves. A long elbow and shoulder length gloves are so very expensive It Is a good plan when the fingers and lnml of the gloves are worn out to buy a pair o' white musketeer gloves of the same kid and Join them to the upper part of ill" glove which Is worn out If this bo neatly done with on or two rows of machine stitching It will never show, and will be found an Immense rav Ing. Every one knows hew unnecessary It seems to throw away an apparently per fectly good pair of long cvpnlng gloves simply because the hand Is sightly worn, while the upper part is as good as it ever was. Extremely smart are the broad linen bells with a long brass buckle, to be worn with simple shirt-waist costume. These belts are made of fine linen, and arc about four Inches In width; the buckle four Inches long by one or two wide. Thre may be a narrow piece of whabone ndd "d just at the back If the belt crushei Into too narrow a band. Tho crush leather belts are still as smart as they were cur lier In the season. Broad girdles of silk or satin are effect ive with white shirt waists, and If th waist be of a fine material long sash ends arc worn with the colored belt. It Is a good plan with the white lingerie hat to have three or four different colored bona which may be easily changed. Then, with the colored sash, veil and parasol to match, even the simplest costume will be charming. vJiIte niching l now icrv generally worn about tho neck with all drcfses. and Is particularly good to finish the collars of the ready-made shirt waist, as the bandi are very npt to crumple Into narrow, ugly strips. The niching gives the necesarv height, and makes a pretty edging to the eollar. Although often nttractl.-e, it Is not necewary about tho cuff?. hasijy o a n Aii.no in Tiur.

Ir that it resulted In an agree ment to t"st the relative strength of Jeho vah and Baal. It was; agreed that the test should be publicly made on Mount Carmel. a l.old promontorj Jutting out into the Mediterranean, a favorable spot. An altar was to be erected, sacrifices laid thereon, and the God who answered bv lire should be acknowledged to b" the tru God. The prophets of Uaal made the first atfmpl. They cried aloud and cut themselves with knives from morning until evening, but there uno response. The King and his courtiers waited anxiously onl to fnd that the god v.ho had been worshiped an swered not when the priests called upon him that he did not vindicate himself. THE WITNESSES-It was after this day of total failure had passed that Elijah stepped forward As the repre sentative of Jehovah ho pre'ented a strik ing contrast with the hundreds of tho prophets of Pa il Hl3 Cm act was to m Ite the people to coma near him (Verse ie) They had gathered about the altar of Baal. He now desired that they ohnuld surround him and be witness of all that might transpire He old not propose any cunning art, any trick or Imposition. AH should be open to tho inspection of all. And the people came. Ahab. the Prince r, the elders, prob?blv some of the faNe prophets were in the companj. It mav be that soma were there who kn" hlljah and erctly believed in God and expected a demonstration that should convince all.
