Clothes to Be Made at Home GAINS 8 POUNDS IN TWO WEEKS' TIME Dyspepsia Entirely Overcome and She f Simple and Inexpensive Frocks for Summer Wear Help Hold Expenses Down. Materials Are Popular With Women In and Practical Dresses Ging ham Hold Important Place. Simple and Inexpensive clothes, made at home by the amateur dress maker, not only reduce the cost of milady's wardrobe, but afford a satis faction known to every woman hav ing something made the way It Is wanted. The problem of limiting expense and at the same time having charming clothes Is one which, almost every woman faces at one time or another. This problem may be solved success fully by adopting the plan of the thrifty housekeeper and working on a budget. , HIt-or-miss spending Is as disastrous In dress as It Is In any branch of household expenditure or in business. One way of being well dressed at all times, observes a fashion writer In the New York Tribune, Is that of sup plementing the expensive models which one must buy with a few simple clothes made at home. It Is well to take a lesson. from the French women, and if one cannot have n great many - for Beige' Kasha, Having PoeK- r sir i ana fcouar ot via-rasnionea W.i I y IK JoJp' ': ' -'" 111 " JV Patchwork: Outlined With' Emtirald.- p p - - -- - ' beautiful clotbesteget a few that . are good, wear them constantly and then "get new ones.

Dotted swlss was selected for one tnodel because It is popular with wom en all over the country and makes a comfortable and practical dress. This dress Is worked out in black, dotted with white. Interest ' is added by white linen ribbon embroidered with black dots, which is used for a sash and to bind the neck of the frock. The scallops are embroidered In white. An organdie dress robbed of Its Dress Easily Made at Home The skirt may be plain or it may have two large tucks encircling it. If further ornamentation is desired, sew ' the tucks in a long running stitch , with green worsted and trim the neck and sleeves in the same way. Neither worsted nor organdie Is a , new trimming for gingham dresses, but evidently designers have not been able to think of anything prettier to take their place, for we have them used jmore profusely than ever this year. This is especially true of organdie. Quantities of organdie trimmings are eeen. Tapes and strings, such as are used to tie packages In the shops, have been Tedlscoyered ; that 's, they have been found decidedly decorative when dyed In bright colors and applied to wash dresses. The tape is used either In white or color on linen frocks for bind ing the edges and for embroidery. When used for embroidery it Is Inter mingled with stitches In cotton threads. Such a trimming is effectively car ried out on a dress of heavy cerise flufflness may not appeal to the flap- per, hut It does appeal to almost every woman who has passed the flapper stage. Dresses of the crlsper muslins would have a much greater appeal were they more clinging in outline. A fluffy organdie dress carries no ap Iieal except to those who are exceed ingly slender. A stralghtllne frock of dark red or gandie has sleeves and sash of white organdie ornamented with crisp little flowers made of red and white mus lins. Patchwork Pockets From Vivid Silks. Ways of embellishing clothes and adding to simple frocks touches that bring them Into an entirely new realm are as Important as are the clothes themselves; oftentimes they are more so. A great many women like little or no trimming on their clothes; others enjoy touches of color, ribbons and laces. This is more or less a matter of taste, and it wrtild be making rath er a strong statement to say that one is good taste and the other bad. - Things of this sort depend largely on Individual temperament. There Is no reason why a woman -should not have any kind of trimming she likes, especially In these days when so many kinds are offered 'and all are so rich in suggestion. Because one woman likes her clothes plain and of severe simplicity is no reason why another should sacrifice her individuality by copying her neighbor. Another very attractive and simply made frock Is of beige cloth. A trimming of buttons Is used on the outside of the sleeve and down tie side of the skirt, but the note of real novelty lies In the collar arid pocket of old-fashioned patchwork; that Is, bits of silk of various colors pieced together and outlined by embroidery stitches. This trimming has the In dorsement of Paris, as It was used by ever so many of the great French dressmakers on their spring models. New Cotton Materials.

A charming dress for warm summer mornings may be made of green and white checked gingham in the follow ing way: Cut' the bodice portion just like a chemise dress and join long flowing sleeves to a very low shoulder line. Gather a full skirt to the chemise portion slightly below the normal waistline. The neck may be rut square or In boat shape and finished with a bias fold of green organdie un derlaid with one of white. The sleeves should be edged with organdie In two colors to match the neck. Now make a narrow belt of the red organdie, or of the gingham If you like, and line It with white, allowing the white to show at either edge In the form of a piping. Ornament this with two tiny, , stiff bows of the green, trimmed with white. Tie the girdle In the back, permitting the stiff litte bows to come at either side of the front. linen, the bodice of which Is plain and straight, with a skirt Joined to It low on the hips. The skirt laps over at one side and where It fastens there Is an embroidered papel. The dress Is bound on all edges with the white tape, which affords a pleasing contrast with the linen. Summer frocks, whether they be Id chemise form or in two pieces, usu ally are made to slip on over the head. In each Instance the waist portion is usually slashed to enable th wearer to don tlfe garment more readily. Gay Color Note. It Is a fashion these days to have the inside" drawers of a sewing table a brilliant color that gives a decora tive note when the drawer Is open. For instance, the drawers could be finished with emerald green or rose color, and the Inside of the sewing basket lined In the same gay manner. These inexpensive and simple color notes add immensely to the beauty of room; that is, If they are wisely planned and not too startling. v,.w c-o nvvu iwi TX7ASHINGT0N. Recent stnte ments appearing In the press throughout the country to the effect that some of the veterans who were exposed to war gas are now losing their voices, are Cfcuslng considerable uneasiness In the minds of ex-service men. "As a result of the general publi cation of this misinformation the United States veterans' bureau fs in receipt of numerous Inquiries from such veterans as to the correctness of this story," says a statement from the office of Director Forbes. The bureau made public the following from Col. Robert U.

A PLAN for advancing the use of arbitration as a means of settling commercial, disputes between business men is announced by the Chamber of Commerce of the United States. The plan takes into account the present wide use of arbitration in this country, and contemplates making It more general by extending It among business organizations making up the national chamber's membership. , As sent to all member organizations, the plan carries suggestions for setting up arbitration machinery and a statement of the services which the national chamber can render to organization members supplemental to their own efforts, both In domestic and foreign commerce. U. S. Passports Are TJUNDREDS of applications are be lug received every week at the State department for Ajuerlcan pass ports for aliens who have filed their "first papers" declaring their Intention of becoming American citizens or who, by reason of too long continued resi dence In this country or for other rea sons, have forfeited their right to passports from their own govern ments. Refusal by British consular officials to Issue passports, except In cases of special . necessity, to British subjects In this country who have taken the first step toward American citizenship, even though two years must elapse before they can be naturalized, has called attention to the predicament of declarants, especially since the re peal two years ago of the act of March 2, 1907, which granted the secretary of state authority In-hls discretion to Issue passports "to persons not citi zens of the United States" who had declared their Intention to become citizens and had redded for three years in this country 1 v -v iff I III ' I ' - Ms- ' w "During the last year the medical division of the chemical warfare serv ice has been making a careful study of the after effects of warfare gases. As a result of these studies the fol lowing conclusions have been drawn. "As to the occurrence of respira tory troubles resulting from exposure to gases, there Is little evidence to show that gas played a conspicuous role In this connection. It Is doubt ful If the Incidence of these diseases among ex-service men Is really greater than among those . who were not gassed. "Those who develop respiratory troubles at this late date since their discharge have no basis for claims that their disabilities were the result of their war experiences. Such dis abilities would probably have devel oped If they had never been In the service at all. If a year or so elapses from the time of gissing until symp toms develop, it is quite probable that gas had nothing to do with the mat ter, provided thnt the lungs of such claimants were clear nt the time of discharge."

Scarce for Aliens 'you ARE not EN TITLED TO Such a passport, however, was good only for six months, could not be re newed, did not include families, and was issued only in case of dire neces sity on the part of the. applicant and never to the country of which, the ap plicant was a citizen prior to the filing of his declaration of intentions.
