In the first place, the garments worn
by these Parisian children are emi

they are imbued with a spirit of In
dividuality that, to the mind of the
prejudiced American and the still (

Of truth In the unkind remark, for the
French are inclined to dress their little
girls In frocks that reflect the actual J
modes of the moment At the same
time the French do create delightful
Juvenile styles, and If one wants origi

the French for them. Theee artistic

fashion the qualities of simplicity and

for me. particularly those of the pres

Compare, for example, the charming-
little French frocks seen In the group j
of Illustrations with the average ones
shown In this country The French
models are no less childish, no less
simple, but the have a character and
display shades of difference that are
lamentably lacking In our productions, j
It Is In the details of trimming, the'j
management of the materials, that the

I A Novel
t Card Party
'J'HIS pretty card party was conduct
ed like a cotillion and was a great
success It was given for forty guests,
and the tables were scattered through
out the large rooms of a spacious
country house In the first place each
guest found htr place at table with
throe others by means of a souvenir
name card.
When all had arrived and were seat
ed at the tables tho hostess was very
particular to Introduce each partner
personally If unacquainted, which
made every one feel more comfortable,
then the bell rang and playing began.
Four games were played, and the
losers were tho ones to move, going to
a table for favors. These they gave to
the winners at the other tables, who
were taken lo the table of the losers,
and thus they met an entirely new net
of players.
There was no counting score sim
ply tho best ihreo hands winning out
of four. There were ten sets of favor.
After fire sets of favors had been uaed
refreshments wero served; then play
ing was resumed until all the favors
had been used. At the last each loser
brousht an extra favor for her favorei
partner and herself, which called f..r
much merriment, aa they wore l.i
paper sacks blown out and tied at i
top with varlou colored ribbons Thi
were to carry the favors home In, an.
they were needed.
It certainly wa a Jolly party, and
tho Idea Is adaptable to all card partlea
where tho hostess dcslrea something
out of the ordinary. The favors may
bo as elaborate as tho puree will permit-
Tho ones at the party described
consisted of bonbons In fancy boxes, i
Imported chocolate, salted nuts in
dainty receptacles, paper aprons, neck

Violet Perfume and How It Is Made
"yiOLET perfume atill holds Its own
among many newcomers with the
dalnt woman, and, as Its preparation
la ao simple and the apparatus neither
complex nor expensive, women of the
present day might find violet perfume
making at home Interesting If they but
knew how to do It
The volatile or essential oils of the
violet can be secured ln several ways
The simplest method, however, Is to
Place the flowers with as little stalk
aa possible In a wide mouthed bottle
or Jar three-quarters full of the best
olive oil, then stretch a bladder over
the top and tie It securely.
After the flowers have been In the
oil for twenty-four hours take them
out, place them ln a coarse linen cloth
and squeeze the oil from them, pour
ing the oil obtained back ln the bottle.
Repeat this process with fresh flowers
until the perfume is of the desired
After the perfumed oil haa boon se
cured it must be dissolved with spirits
The alcohol used In making perfumes
must be selected with care, and the
safest way U to buy the regular "co
logne spirits-" As a rule, there should
be used about half as much alcohol as
there la oil It Is an easy matter to
tell when enough alcohol has been
used as the mixture will have a white
or clouded appearance as long as the
oil la undissolved, but will be perfectly
clear when the oil l entirely digested.
Never throw away the cloths used ln
the processes, but place them ln a Jar
of alcohol, leaving them there until the
oil that Is In them has been dlgoated.
The bottles containing the volatile oils
must bo blackened or wrapped ln black
paper and kept In a dark place until
ready for putting In the a'cohol if it
Is not convenient to use them at once,
All essences must be kept ln tlghtlj

enough to stand the strain, but that
they stop the circulation, and. besides Xt
