Sketch Shows Idea That May Be Ta
ken as Representative-Informal
t ?ty Always the Chief Object
in the Cut.
Judging from advance models, the
separate coats of the sporting type
designed for the summer are to be
even smarter and more attractive
than those which were so successfully
launched last year. They will be made
up in all the same bright colors and
practically the same materials as last
year's models, but the new ones are
possessed of a clever cut and grace
of line that make them quite the nic
est sort of a serviceable summer
Of course, they are designed pri
marily to wear with white tailored
skirts and blouses or with white S2rge
frocks, for. as a general rule, they are
made up in such bright colors that
they could hardly be worn with any
thing but white. Emerald green, mus
tard color, navy or Columbia blue, ce
rise, magenta and scarlet are the
shades that are most used, while there
are any number of pure white ones
just as there were last year. The
striped blazer cloths will not be used
at all.
Today's sketch shows a coat that is
representative of the new designs. It

can be made in auy color desired and
ls of velour de laine or a lightweight
polo weave.
The sleeves have very wide arm
sides and are cut in one with the
body. A very deep cuff is fitted to
the forearm and Hares at top and bot
tom under a row of cloth-covered but
tons. The body of the coat is cut with
some fulness that is. disposed of in
naturally hanging folds held in place
?under an easily tacked-on belt which
knots loosely in front. A row of but
tons set closely along one side of the
front is the only trimming aside from
the tasseled sash ends.
Most of the sporting coats reach
well below the hips, are unlined and
have their seams bound with silk lute
string. Of course, such coats are al
ways most informal. But now that
they have lost that slouchiness that
used to characterize outing garments
and are instead graceful of line and
trig looking with a certain dash about
them, they are altogether useful, in
fact, almost indispensable adjuncts to
a well regulated spring and fall outfit.
Linen Embroidered Sets.
Among the hand-embroidered acces
sories being worked by clever needle
women are sets for summer frocks, in
cluding collar, cuffs and sash or girdle
of cOiored linen worked in oriental em
broidery. One notable design was
worked on one side of the front, with
ends reaching below the knees. These
ends were scalloped and embroidered
in dull blues, rose and yellow to cor
respond with the turnover collar and
elbow cuffs. The whole was intended
for w~ar with a white linen morning
dress, or perhaps a sheer muslin.
Hat's With Two Brims.
The two-brimmed hat is becoming
to many pretty faces. White duve
tyn is chosen for the top brim, which
is so flat a? to almost flo away with
the appearance a separate crown.

For Summer Decoration Housewife
May Achieve Practically Any
Effect Desired.
The housewife who elects to do
over the bedrooms in "simple chintzes"
for summer days will discover that
her idea, admirable though it may be,
cannot be carried out as frugally as
she imagines. It is most annoying,
when one sets forth to buy cretonnes,
to find that all the really charming
patterns are so high priced. To be
sure, one may have any quantity of
simple effects at 9, ll or 15 cents the
yard. but. alas, the colors are garish
and crude, and onr^ place such pat
terns beside the iovaly, blurry French
effects and they become impossible,
even for the "simplest little summer
There are cretonne designs now to
accord with every scheme of furnish
ing. One may have colonial chintzes,
Georgian effects. Jacobean patterns,
Chinese Chippendales, tapestry and
block designs, and the cost thereof
ranges from a modest 40 cents the
yard to $1.98.
The block printed cretonnes of Eng
lish manufacture come in wonderful
cashmere effects, which are orientally
luxurious and are intended, of course,
for living-rooms. For the bedroom
nothing ls more beautiful than the
warp-printed cretonnes with soft,
shadowy floral patterns in blended
tones of gray, rose, green, pale blue
and cream. Some of these patterns
show quaint little flower baskets and
trellis designs. For mission rooms in
the bungalow the Jacobean effect, with
rich dull colorings, harmonize .well
with dark oak furniture and wood
Most original summer rooms can be
devised by using Chinese cretonnes,
with black or blue grounds, on which
are printed birds and woodland scenes
In strong colors. The futurist cre
tonnes, though a blt bizarre in effect,
will be rather stunning in certain
sorts of bungalow Interiors.
Variety of Styles Offered May Almost
Be Said to Be Endless In
The fashion of wearing dresses open
at the throat has led to the adoption
of an endless variety of neckwear.
First, there was the guimpe without
any collar at all. Now there are those
with flowing collars and plastron or
vestee fronts made of the sheerest
swiss and organdy, either hand or
machine embroidered, or tucked
Sometimes a dainty lace ls added to
relieve the severity and increase the
appropriateness for use with summer
dresses. The collar of these guimpes
rolls, flares or stands away from the
Many collars are removable. They
are fastened in the back with but
tons or strings, so that they are taken
off with ease. They are generally
made of some airy fabric, such as
tulle or lace. When they are made
high and encircle the neck they are
made to stand up by means of a very
fine wire fixed to the edge of the frill.
They may be made of muslin, cam
bric, pique or organdy, trimmed with
feather stitching and lace. Beautiful
fronts are made of fine linen embroid
ered in all kinds of ways. The shapes
worn are of infinite variety. You may
choose whatever suits you best if you
leave the throat free.
With the fashionable waistcoat,
which is worn over a blouse of tulle
or muslin, and which has the back
made in the same material as the
front, one may indulge every whim in
fancy collars. Jaunty vests and waist
coats of pique, organdy, ratine or
linen, finished with plain rolling col
lars wired in the back, are worn with
the extremely short coats.

To Set Colors.
Now is the time when the "fore
handed" woman is getting some of her
summer sewing done. Before making
up the colored wash materials ehe
shrinks them and "sets" the colors.
Green and lavender materials will re
tain their coloring, unhurt by laundry
work, if they are soaked at first fif
teen minutes in about two gallons of
cold water, to which half a cupful of
strong vinegar has been added. Salt
ed water, or water to which a little
turpentine has been added, will set
pinks sr.ii blues. Colored silk stock
ings may be successfully washed by
following the same rules.
Will Be of Good Service Both as
Graduation Gown and for Summer
Wear Soft Mulls and Batistes
Are Favored.
Embroidered Ba
It should not be a difficult problem
to find a frock suitable for graduation
purposes this year, for there are quan
tities of adorable youthful models
and exquisite materials that are avail
able for the young girl graduate.
The most practical of graduating
frocks is of course the one that will
stand tubbing. Fine lingerie gowns
are nowadays more often sent to the
cleaner than to the laundress; but the
young girl as a rule is not overcareful
of her clothes, and if a frock must go
to the cleaner
often during a
summer one will
have little com
fort from it. Per
haps the summer
is to be spent
where no clean
ing establishment
is close at hand
and inconvenience
is added to the
time and expense
So the frock
actually fitted for
tubbing is the
practical frock for
a girl whose sum
mer wardrobe ls
limited, and lt is
quite possible to
take this into con
slderation without
sacrificing too
much upon the al
tar of utility
? fine linen ls
the most satisfac
tory material for
the lingerie frock that is to endure
tubbing, and it wi!] pay to obtain an
excellent quality. The batistes and
mulls are softer and launder well If
carefully handled, but the linen will
outwear them every time.
Various other sheer cottons have
come into popularity. Swiss and or
gandie are of course the old favor
ites, but their crispness, once their
chief merit, has made them yield place
somewhat to the softer mulls and
batistes and linens, though they are
still liked. The cotton nets, voiles
and crepes are more recent arrivals
and have achieved decided popular
ity, a very large percentage of the
cotton graduating frocks this year be
ing made up in these materials.
They launder well, are easily han
dled, and are very soft, graceful and
durable)* despite their sheerness, anT
they lend themselves admirably to
simple forms of trimming, although
they may be made very elaborate with
hand embroidery.
The cotton nets come 'in varying
meshes, in wide widths and are not
extremely expensive. Frequently one
sees a frock made entirely of the net
and quite devoid of trimming save
for scalloped or picot edges or edges
hemstitched. One expensive but re
markably attractive frock of net was
finished around the edge with scallops.
The skirt was made over a silken
foundation. There were two full ruf
fles of the net shirred on two cords
with a two-inch beading encircling the
skirt. The ruffles. were finished at
the upper and the lower edge by deep
scallops. The lower part of the skirt
was drawn in closely at the bottom
and widened gradually toward the
The sleeves were finished at the
lower edge with shirrings and a scal
loped frill. Across the shoulders the
sleeves were again shirred on two
cords and headed
by an upstanding
scalloped frill.
The frill was
met at the back
and front by scal
loped edged rev
ers, also of net.
Folds of the plain
net filled in the
V at the back
and front. The
lower part of the
bodice was
formed of deli
cate shadow lace.
Another expen
sive frock, which,
however, is not
an imported mod
el, is ol' embroi
dered voile. This
is pictured, lt is
made on the fa
miliar lines of a
simple full blouse
with pepin ni or
tunic, a plain,
slightly draped
skirt, slightly
rounded away at
the skirt bottom s
at the frout. But the distinctive fea
ture, as in the one first described,
is the amount of hand embroidery
wMch ornaments it. Net frills finish
the long sleeve at the wrist and an
upstanding frill of the net encircles
the neck and extends down the front
of the blouse.
Embroidered Voile.
Groups of Buttons.
Little square buttons covered with
silks are ranged in groupe on blouse
sleeves and fronts. Some shaped hip
yokes, below which tunics fall in ful
ness, have these sets of squares at
the front and at the back.
Mrst engiU?i concertina.
The first English concertina was
made in IS29, but there was a Ger
man concertina long before that time.
Mozart (who seems to have written
[or every instrument in existence in
his day, including barrel organs, me
chanical clockwork, etc.) wrote aa
adagio in C major 2-4 time for the
concertina in the year 1779, and also
an adagio and rondo for concertina,
flute, oboe, viola, and 'cello in 17'JO
or 1791.
Tomato Juice for Stains.
Tomato juice is said to be success
ful in many cases in removing ink
stains from white materials, such as
handkerchiefs, muslin frills, etc. It
must, however, be done as soon as pos
sible after the mishap occurred. A
clean piece of blotting paper should
be laid under the stain, and a slice
of raw. ripe tomato rubbed over the
surface, fresh pieces of blotting paper
being substituted until the ink spot
has vanished.
Gentleness at Home.
Use your gentlest voice at home.
Watch it day by day as a pearl of
great price, for it will be worth more
to you in days to come than the best
pearl hid in the sea. A kind voice ia
joy, like a lark's song, to a hearth at
home. It is a light that sings as well
as shines. Train it to sweet tones
now, and it will keep In tune through
life.-Elihu Burritt.

Markley (to pestering Insurance

to me last year, you told me that
the company you were with was
the best in the world." Agent
"My dear slr, it was at that time,
but the company I am now with, hav
ing since had the benefit of my serv
ices, has. of course, taken the honor
away from it."
Nothing Short of Calamity.
Holding a glass of clear honey In
his right hand, father observed im
pressively: "It cost the little- bees
many a weary trip to fill this with
sweetness from the flowers." Little
Laura, who had been listening close

"Wouldn't it have been too bad If one
of them had dropped the glass?"

"Yes, the man I bought it from gave
me a written guaranty that the paint
er was past seventy-five before he did
a stroke of it."
Laughter Aids Digestion.
Laughter is a most healthful exer
tion; it is one of the greatest helps to
digestlou with which I am acquainted;
and the cuBiom prevalent among our
forefathers, of exciting it at table by
jesters and buffoons, was founded on
true medical principles.-Hufeland.
