NEW YORK July 23 With advanc

ness of texture are very properly the
distinguishing features of childrens
1 fashions Things are getting wonder
fully cheap too so that if one only
k knows where to find them many fa
mous bargains may be picked up for
the song < of proverb
L At all of the large shops certain
days of each summer month are de
voted to the Sale of white goods
which includes white undergarments in
lall sizes trousseaux for babies and tiny
frocks for small girls and boysv Every
thing at these places is cheaperthan
r at the regular outfitters of childrens
wear so the white goods days are
well patronized by thrifty mothers
On the other hand it is only at the
outfitters that all the sizes of chil
drens garments may be found and
the saving of time and worry in going
tner first will except to very skimpy
J purses make up for the difference in
At a wellknown childrens furnish

silks and cottons and plain mulls
with black ribbons in which tiny
maids as young as 6 may mourn for
the dead
American mothers as a rule are not
given to the benighted custom of put
ting their young children in mourning
and even the dearth of a father is con
sidered to scarcely warrant it
But in Paris it is the thing for mere
babies to wear mourning for a near
relative Clad in deep and fashionable
black from head to foot both boys and
girls will be seen like gloomy little
crows walking in the streets beside
beribboned nurses And so the New
York furnishers too keep mourning
for children wiich is bought by a few
silly persons and forced on helpless

quite as refined in effect if not in qual
Many of the more expensive layettes
are pint up charmingly The tiny
clothes are divided off into half doz
ens tied with ribbons and sold in a
ribbontrimmed basket which is also a
receptacle for all the other baby para
phernalia White or colored silk or
plain or dotted Swiss will be shirred
over the basket covering it completely
A laceedged frill and ribbon bows
finish the cover and inside the basket
there are soft puff pockets to hold the
many bands and pins needed a silk
sponge comb brush and powder box
These last are usually of celluloid
and most commonly white
Again the celluloid toilet articles will
Be in a delicate tint to match the bas
ket ribbons which are generally pink
for a boy and blue for a girl
Then if babys papa is very wellto
do and its mamma has frivolous tastes
there may be a big pearl or a glittering
brilliant imbedded in the handle of the
powder puff
The best of the ready made layettes
are of French manufacture All of the
little first garments are sewn by
I hand with materials of a fairy fineness
and many of the dressup things run

threads and fancy stitching India
lawn and real Valenciennes lace in
narrow edgings and entredeux is the

The new models for infants dresses
differ little from those long seen ex

made the comfortable bishop shape
For the rest there will be a round or
square yoke from which hangs the skirt I
which may be plainly hemmed or else
show above a laceedged flounce the
same narrow tucks and lace insertion
that ornament the yoke Where the
yoke and skirt are joined tigether and
for the neck band will be a tiny bias of

To conclude infants dresses are
made a little shorter than formerly but
other differences are mere matters of
For out of town lawn parties chil

dainty French confections for young
ladies from 6 to 12 These are all made
of the most elegant materials pale
silks delicately striped and figured
Swisses painted muslins and organ

expense yellow Valenciennes lace will
be used on them in profusion along
with quantities of glistening taffeta
ribbon in wide and narrow black satin

organdie frocks with stylish and
grownup effect
A lownecked shontwaisted body
sewed to a full skint is the design for
the youngest of all of these little toi

guimpes of mull or lawn These sleeves
are in short shoulder puffs finished
with a twist of ribbon or laceedged
frill and on hot days these may be the
only protection to plump bare arms
Some of the French gala frocks fur
girls from 4 up are made high necked

At Newport some quaint and novel
arrangements of the hair distinguished
the little daughters of many smart
mothers One coiffure fashion for lit =
tle maids is to part the hair in the mid

ears with narrow ribbons Again the
part may be made at tale left and the
curls combed like a boys over to the
right and tied in one bunch ala Velas

crown of the head also tied with rib
bons is another style of hair dressing
very becoming to little maids of the
French type
With almost all dressy frocks some
jewelry is worn by even the tiniest girls
For the neck tttiere are thin gold chains

Suggestions For Those Who Cannot
Give Up All Their I Time
How can I get work to do at home
is the question that assails us on every
side The answer is There is scarcely
any to be had
Copying is not to be thought of as
typewriting has taken its place Daily
governesses are very little in demand
Needleworkeven the most buitiful is
very badly paid
One golden rule should be observed
dwellers in the provinces should try to
dispose of the work where they are
known It is a mistake to imagine that
the large towns afford better chances
Take dressmaking etc as an example
That Is work that might be done at home
and a good worker in the suburbs or in
small country towns might earn quite a
nice little addition to her income
She should make a specialty of one
line as by continually studying it she
would get very proficient and become a
mistress of her art She might make
nothing else but blouses in which case
she would always possess the latest de
signs and be ready to give good color and
material suggestions or she might take up
the making of childrens clothes childrens
I coats and cloaks little boys suits or I
babies clothes
Again a good mender ought to be able
to get work in her own neighborhood or I
in the nearest town To obtain it she
should advertise in the local paper put
a notice in the principal ships apply at
the largest boy and girls schools and
to the wife of the clergyman or minister
of the parish or to the busiest housewife
she knows
A lady who can cook well might add
to her Income by filling up gapsgoing
to a house for a few hours each day while
servants are being changed or undertak
ing the cooking of the dinner and man
agement of one or two servants while the
mistress of a small household is entertain
ing her friends
Some ladles might be glad to have a
young girl for a few hours dally to take
and fetch the children to and from school
and perhaps superintend their home les
sons etc Others might be glad to em
ploy a girl to amuse the smaller children
every afternoon and perhaps teach them
the alphabet
It is possible sometimes to get em
ployment for an hour or two every day
as reader or letter writer to either old or
busy men and women A good musician
might find occasional employment as an
accompanist or to play dance music or
assist generally in entertaining With the
fruit season coming on there might be
scope for a good jam maker to preserve
any quantity of fruit for those who whilst
preferring home made jams have not the
time or do not care for the trouble of
preserving the fruit at their own houses
Philadelphia Public Ledger
How doth the little busy bee
Improve its shining hour
He wastes it gathering sweets which he
Will never help devour >
For ere the shining hours are fled
He leaves his honey stored
The fooJislv busy bee is dead
And vandals raid his hoard
Now from standpoint of the bee
He wasted toil and strife I
By misdirected industry
He missed the sweets of life
Of course men praise the busy bee
If they didnt twould be funny
For when hors stored It dont you see
They get the P bs honey

Bernhardt who has really the most

woman will not exercise and hates
fruit unless she happens to feel in a
mood for eating it and still she has o
handsome head of hair and this the
health doctors say is quite remarkable
In view of the fact that fruit and ex
ercise make beautiful hair She makes
her hair grow winter and summer by
exposing it For several hours a day
that hair hangs down her back with
the air blowing through it and the sun
touching Her theory is that wher
ever the hairpins touch her hair it will
be dull and glossless In the morning

dress In most of Bernhardts plays
the heroine wears unconfined locks
and here again madam has a chance to
carry out her theory and to show the
result of it in the magnificent gloss of
