cleared the ground, and had a narrow
embroidered trimming down the front.
White alpaca and Tussore have also
?been used by the leading tailors, and
here again does the pleated skirt Just
clear the ground. This skirt is cer
talnly the most general for morning
wear and can look very well ln thin
aerges or fiannels. Wlth this the short
bolero is admirable. worn, of course,
over a skirt, the best skirts being of
white cambric or lawn, wlth linen col
lars and cuffs, unstiffened aud softened
by dainty < mbroidery.
The coiored bolero ls already a fea?
ture; it is a most useful addition to our
aummer frocks. For instance. I have
6een a froek of blaek chlffon voile worn
wlth a bolero of wide blaek and white
strlped velvet, the sleeves turned back
above the elbow with blaek velvet, wlth
revera of tne same. borderea wuh green
and gold embroidery.
Bright green and bright orange
panne and taffeta, and Tussores. are
the favorite shades and fabrics for this
new bolero. whieh ls often made wun
tiay, plaatad (rtlla, admlrablj suiied to
thin women.
Some of the Viennese clothes are
made up wlth th?- corselct skirt. heav
ily hralded. and the short bolero also
braldad to match.
Capes are worn in much variety. and
the pa'.etot also forma a useful wrap
for the moment. The old-fashlcr.ed
"cro?5s-over" fas-ering at the back with
Btfa, is a pretty Idea, and ln
velvet or Bllk is admirable for casino
aaar. The aaoal aiaborata toiiettes
show the short shoulder and tight
sleeves with full ?ra<?: ful skirts. The

also aptilics to the Priaoasa frock,
whieh will be a deeided feature of the
coming modes.
It is strang-e that we should use the
queer velvet acd silk battoaa which
have been out of date for so many
years. but we have begaa to renlize
that nothing looks dowdy in the hands
of the expert. It is only when difficult
styles are copied by the mil'ion that
Incongrulty arises. It is weil to re
member that the Princess robe sttlts
very few figures; to be a BBaBeeBB it
must be most deftly draped. and cut
with real "cunning." as the Amcricans
wouid say.
Oray?a curlous smoke gray?has he
come the cra/e among Americans, and
gray astrachan will be a popular fur
during the coming winter, second only
to Russian sabie and ermlne. Then we
shall use a great deal of fur edging
as trlmmlng, and this Is ln some meas
ure due to the revlval of the Princeas
robe, and velvet buttons.
A good many frlnges have been ob
sorved at Homburg, especlally on the
Tussore wraps and coats of klmona
Ehape. Eastern embroideries will be a
notlceable feature of evening dress. and
among the fabrics used we shall still
see shaded moussellne de soie. taffeta
changeant and satins. while many will
be glad to know that the old-fashioned
peau de sole and moire antique will be
revived. Vieux roaa of the most vivid
shade will be one of the favorite colors
for evening wear. Greens, yellows,
blues, from the brightest Rickett shade
to the palest corn-flower tlnt. and gray
will be almost as popular for night as
for day wear.
Another item of Interest Is that pet

Stocked Up On Prayers.
One little girl that I know of ls so
sleepy when she starts for bed that it ls
oaal!** hard work for her to make
up her mind to finish. the good night
prayer. A few Blgbta ago she dropped
her head upon the pillows earlier than
usual. She wasn't very sleepy and at
once began to dash off a prayer in re
freshing style. The first prayer over.
along eame another one and still athird.
About this time hrr mother, surprised
at the turn proceedings had taken, asked
the little one what she meant by so
many prayers. "Why." explalned tha
little girl, "Im going to say 12 prayers.
