Delightful contribu tory features, which are of the ut most importance to the success of the' gown, she has accorded with lavish hand. Sie .veless jackets of Eton style are much in favor. Whether the frock be of batiste or aatin matters not; it is equally smart The Eton is attached to the belt behind to keep it in place. Guimpes or sheer waists art« worn un derneath. The tunic, too, is very HOUSEHOLD NOTES After blankets have been washed slid dried thoroughly they" should ho well beaten with a carpet beater.

These were revived last fall and soon became popular, but now they have become the rage. By the time summer has waned the frock or suit without the vest will be the exception. They are made of plain or brocaded satin, har monizing or contrasting in color with the costume. A real Scotch note is struck when the vest is developed in soft taffeta silk of tartan design. When worn with tailored suits, these are very chic and charming. Stripes and dots in high colors are also very pop \ ular.

At other limes they are sleeve less garments, as men's vests are, and agajn they are simulated vests in the fronts of waists, which, when the jackets are discarded, become smart blouses. So much has been said of the dropped waist nd the use of sashes, two notable considerations of pres ent-day fashions, that anything fur ther may seem superflu Dua.
