The hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs.
Eugene Carroll was thronged with their
many friends on Thursday evening, the
affair being a dancing party given in
honor of Miss Montague of Missouri, who
is their guest for the summer. A most
charming addition to the house room had
been fashioned for the occasion on the
lawn at the right of the house, where a
multitude of evergreen trees formed a re
treat for those fatigued with dancing.
The perfect weather made this available
during the entire evening and the soft
lights hung among the green added much
to the beauty of the decorations. About
midnight a course supper was served, af
ter which dancing was resumed until a
late hour. Following is a list of those

Mrs. H. N. Kennedy entertained in a
delightful manner Saturday evening in.
honor of tlie birthday anniversary of Miss
Maud Whaley. The house was prettily
decorated with cut roses and flowers.
The evening hours were spent at cards
and a n elegant repast was served at a
seasonable time. Those present were:
Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Bouton, Misses Edith
Colvin and Maud Whaley, Messrs Hugh
Babcock, J. C. Maring, W. L. P. McCaw,
and Mr. Howard of Madison, Wis.
She took three yards of plain mull and
covered it with ruffles half an inch wide.
That is the task which a woman who
desired a shirt waist with ruffles willing
ly took upon herself. The work of ruf
fling occupied two days, but as the ruf
fles were machine made and were sewed
on by machine, the work was not hard
on either eyes or fingers.
When the material was entirely cov
y \
ered with little ruffles the waist was cut
out upon an ordinary waist pattern and
a tiny yoke of tucked white goods was set
in. Finally there were stiff white cuffs
added to the waist, and the neck was fin
ished with a narrow band over which a
stock could be worn.
The general rule that all skirts should
he trimmed may be violated in the case of
tti(> figured skirt, which needs no trim
ming. A skirt of cream, figured with
small hunches of flowers, looking for all
the world like summer curtain materia.',
goes well with any shirt waist. If very
fastidious the shirt waist can match tha
color of the (lowers with which the skirt
is so profusely trimmed.
Materials that are closely woven and
impenetrable to the soft breezes of sitm
lii*• I can gain no entrance at the summer
woman's court of fashion, sheer, open
work fabrics being given the preference.
This illustration shows a tennis oufit wffft
skirt of wood brown wool canvas lined
with bright, scarlet silk. Tho waist is of
ecru linen, and a sunbonnet of tan striped
with red matches the suit.
Women whose circumstances allow
them to gratify their exclusive tastes
have pet patterns for their damask cov

Lady Randolph Churchill is as sensitive
to artistic napery as to a good literature
or a beautiful picture; and a design of
small wreaths scattered thickly over
linen of the most exquisite textureds the
distinguishing feature of her dinner
cloths. Another American woman in En
gland has succumbed to the questionable
fashion of associating satins and ribbons
with culinary matters, and considers the
silken sheen of valuable linen, woven
with graceful, spreading fern leaves in
natural sizes, quite worthy her dinner
service of gold and the goblets of Vene
tian crystal.
