and original favors mak
the greatest possible difference In
the success of a cotillon and in the
enjoyment of the young people tnl
inp part in it Lots of fun is often
made by the favors and elmrmin
effects are produced Any number of
pretty favors cnn be bought and of cours
rome people use very beautiful nnd cx
pensive things for this purpose but tha
teems rather foolish and unnecessary un
less one is very wealthy for after all
the real result aimed at is nn enjoyabli
evening and pretty artistic effects
Anything to wear or to carry while
dancing the favor figure if especially de
nimble and different kinds of color
schemes can be carried out with hats
wands and such things A girl who
plans a holiday dance with n cotillon car
mako some exceedingly pretty favors ol
this kind herself Or if she has nol
enough time to give to the work to mak
them all hcrsflf she will probably find 1
plenty of girl friends who will be only
l I loo glad to spend a few afternoons with
I her and help make them
l Several kinds of hats for the different
t Sgurei can he made one very pretty style
being a cocked hal for the men and a
Priscilla cap for the girls Both of those
f arc made of paper For the Priscilla cap
tut a strip of paper seventeen inches long
lnd six Inches wide for the front of the
cap Then cut a half circle with Ha
l straight edge twelve inches long
i Gather It a little in the centre of the
it jnrvc nnd the centre of the straight
rdgc and fasten the front piece around
the curved edge turning back two
Inches of the front to give a little flare
around the face These Friscilla caps
I I should be made of white tissue paper or
crOpo paper
fIE cocked hat to go with this is of
T blue paper For the crown make around
round box six inches In diameter
First cut the circle for tho lop of thin
tnrdboard or stiff paper and cover it with
Mue crepe paper Cut a strip for the band
round the crown about twenty inches
ong and four inches wide and cover it
loo with crepe paper making the paper
in Inch wider than the cardboard This
extra width is slit at close intervals into
r Decorative Mirror Frames Which Girls May Make
X of the industries which finds
ONE with girls at the moment is
the decoration of mirrors of all
dupes and izes and in all sorts of charm
attractive In
UK ways Nothing is more
the boudoir than a number of these
harming mirrors Oval round square
ind rectangular mirrors are all decorated
most attractively ty the use of brocade
mil satin lingerie ehintr velvet gold ap
plique and ribbon flowers
charming mirror decorated with
A t cry
ribbon flowers was about seven
wide and twentyseven inches from top
to bottom The frame was very narrow
not more than half an inch wide
was covered with green brocade But 1
covering this entirely was a garland
and yellow sill roses connected
pink white ani
nected by green satin stems The effect 1
I vnh dainty and charming in the extreme
More elaborate was an oval mirror the
perhaps twelve and
width of which was
inches The
height eighteen

i different points
Gold and silver leaves and vines ore
also used with the little silk roses and
Not only
these frames
lilies to decorate
are the gold and silver ribbons employed
but also cloth r e cold is used to make the
i roses or leaves
The ribbon work dono directly upon
r the silk or brocade is also used for mir
ror frames White moire is the favorite
material for n background and oa this Ii
embroidered the design usually In the
light Pompadour shades and made up of
garlands baskets or bouquets Spangles
sequin and gold thread arc used to help
out the design
Very charming also ate the mirrors
r framed in brocade Handsome brocade
of value Is
frequently antique piece
used for this purpose K the design ot
the brocado is unusually rich nud espe
cially If there is gold ia It it Is used
without other trimming but if the design
Ineffective it Is accentuated
or coloring is cold or
centuated by gold embroidery or by
i uao of gold galloon crushed In diamonds
aro also
over the frame Frames
of velvet moire and satin and trimmed
In this fashion with the gold galloon
f Larger mirrors have frames of lingerie
is either
usually fulled on a CI1me
Sometimes the i
flat trifle rounding
or n
Hncp with
t material used Is very sheer
and on
I u rtions of Cluny or torchon
the cardboard nnd the pieces lapped ore I
each other and pasted to the under side I
of the top piece
Make the brim of n circle of cardboard
the hole in the centre being just the sic
of the crown and tho outer edge fm
inches out from this Cover both sides
with the crOpo paper leaving an oxln
inch on the inner edge of each whicl
Is again cut in slits at intervals ami
pasted to the inner side of the lower edge
of the band When the glue is quite drv
the brim is bent into the shape of a
cocked hat being turned up at each side
of the front and at the back Where it
is turned up at the left side fasten It with
a cockndo consisting of a rosette of bull
paper and a little brush mado by cutting
the paper in line strips With the crinkle
not across it
Another style of hats which gives quite
an amusing effect to the danco is a sun
bonnet for the girls and n farmers hat
for men The sunbonnet is made on much
the same principle as the Frlxcilla cap
but is larger The half circle for the
crown is somewhat larger and gathered
a little more and the strip for the front
of the bonnet Is twenty inches long and
nine inches wide and It ia stiffened with
cardboard The crown does not come
quite to the bottom of this and into tIll
extra space Is fitted a little gathered
flounce that hangs down the back of the
nock The sunbonnet can be made of
either flowered paper or flowered dimity
or checked gingham As the farmers
hat to go with it must ho a real straw
hat the cotton material is beat The
prettiest effect is obtained by making
them of dimity with many different
flowers The only way to get the effect
of the farmers hat is to buy the cheap
broad straw hats that arc used by farm
IT VERY pretty design for one figure is
M a butterfly used as a head ornament
for girls and on the end of n wand
for men The butterfly is made by bend i
ing wire into the right shape and covering
it with crops paper The ends of the
rings arc then painted Irregularly with
hold paint or black or some color that
ontrnsta with the paper used A few
Clack dots are also a great improvement I
other mirrors batiste Is used made in
this fashion or of material which has an
open or lacy design These mirrors are
of course framed In accordance with tho
furnishing of a boudoir because while
the ribbon work or brocaded mirrors will
fit in anywhere this is not true of the
I IAT every detail of the closet may
T be attractive to look upon and the I
shoo rack or shelves be just as con
spicuously pretty as the hanging bars
with their bright colored ribbon hangers
the shoo trees must also be adorned and
beautified An old fashioned slipper or
boot tree with Its extension bar in the
centre cannot well bo trimmed up but
the newest tree consisting of a plain
wooden toe and heel piece connected by a
flexible steel bar really needs to have
that unprepossessing band of steel dis
guised by u dainty cover of bright colored I
ribbon or silk
These trees are extremely easy to cover
and call for no more material than a
yard and a half of ribbon an inch and a
half or less in width according to the size
of the steel bund Satin and flowered taf
feta ribbons are equally pretty but a good
quality Is necessary that will not cut
through soon The cover is formed by
running together two pieces of the ribbon
over the band leaving a narrow edge at
each side to form a finish then fasten the
ribbon firmly at each end by nailing with
tiny gilt head licks to the wooden toe and
heel The ribbon must be gathered in
comparatively full so as to allow the
steel to bend in being put in and out of
the slipper
If all tho shoe trees are equal size then
nil may be trimmed alike with the one
hade of ribbon but if BB Is more gener
ally the rise a different size and shape of
tree is required for each different pair of
bootH and slippers then it would be bet
ter for each pair to have its own shade
perhaps pink for slippers blue for walk
ing boots flowered ribbon for the low
ties and in this way the trees will never
become mixed and considerable time
wasted in frequent sorting out will be

The butterflies should hoof many differ
ent colors and the painting varied ns
much as possible In making tho favors
for the girls the butterfly should be fast
lingerie ones Some of these latter are
made up over colors but the prettiest arc
those made up in all white The chintz
framed mirrors are most attractive but
these like the lingerie ones are made to
fit some particular apartment The
I chintz is usually fitted on I
tho hand for a moment or two to soften
the kid and provont its cracking
For the kind of shoe tree formed of too
and heel pieces of wood connected by n
flexible steel bar there should ho a ribbon
or silicon cover to that ugly looking pieeu

Brocade Covered Jardinieres
rE of the new things which girls
O arc making of old hits of brocade
and gold lace are small jardinieres
in which potted plants can be placed As l
every one knows who has ever sought
for jardiniOrcs in the shops nothing is
more difficult than to find n jardiniOro
which is suitable for a very daintily fur
nished apartment unless one is prepared
to go to clue expense of old silver bowls
carved crystal and similarly very hand II
some places Jhe jardinieres covered I
with brocades are a perfectly suitable sub
stitute for UiCMj and at the same time
afford an opportunity for using small
pieces of beautiful fabrics to great ad
The plant is of course kept in its
original pot the jardiniere it merely an
outer covering It is made of thin card
board curved In the chap of n flower pot
and with the bottom piece stitchcdfnsi te
tho circular sides with strong thread
It Is not necessary 10 have ono piece ot
brocade large enough to cover the entire
aides Usually several strips arc used
the scams being covered with gold lace
or braid The strips roach from the toll
to the bottom of the jnr and should bi
of equal width The lining Is ol dull col
ored bilk matchiug one of the shades in
the brocade or of linen the bottom ol
the jirdlniore is covered with this ma
terial also If then Is not enough of tlu
strips of brocade cover the jar picco
of plain satin or velvet nutty alternatt
with the brocade The figured material
Ls used around the till of the jardinltri
also and tho plain satin or velvet arouse
tho bottom
The gold braid or lace which is a cal
should not be new anti bright looking but
should bo the charming old gold which
blends so nicely with flU sorts of decora
tion The lironido IIlcd should bo boaut

For use in the sumo way as these
favor but giving quite n different effect
is a flower wreath and n star wand The
wreath can bo made either of artificial
lowers or of paper flowers A girl who
knows how to make paper flowers can
use them but it will take a good deal
of time to make enough of these nnd one
can buy very pretty muslin flowers al
the millinery bargain tables in the shops
The wreath is started with a ring that
wU fit the head and this Is covered with
ribbon or strips of colored muslin to
match the flow ore Tho flowers arc sewed
to the muslin on the outside close to
gether and In the back there is a bow
of ribbon with long curls There may be
the greatest variety in the flowers used or
one particular kind cnn be chosen ana all
the wreaths be alike
TIIE wand that belongs to this figure
I is very easy to make A stick Is
wound with ribbon or strips of paper
in two colors and on tho end is fastened

occasionally caused her to forego her tub
Some people habitually bathe the firs
thing in the morning but this course i >
not recommended to an active young gir
who usually goes for a walk or a ride
soon after breakfast for exposure to the
fresh air within an hour after a bath not
infrequently induces a chill And n cohl

Just before going to bed is the safest I
time to take tho daily bath which should
be of n hot or tepid future according to
the individuals stale of health To cer
tain constitutions a very hot bath Is de

ingly soothing to the nerve nail conduces

that they are taking on too much flesh
may wifely employ the nightly hot bath

they should be careful to mix with the
water some astringent to tighten the

Girls of rather delicate physique may
snfcJy take tepid baths but they should
not stray too long in the tub or allow the

a copy of a feather fan in paper makes

of colognij will impart a delicate perfume
to the wholo body amid yea salt not only

but will arouse circulation Deipito
cerjthing that win hu said in favor of
the cold bath it is the warm one which
actually does the cleaning but if the
