OUNG girls are benefiting by the
prevailing note of girllshncs
characterizes this sum
mers dresses and for onco at
I least they have a distracting
number of models from which to
choose Somn are lovelier than others
and nil have lines of grace and beauty
The majority of those Intended for after
noon wear are quite simply made The
materials are a combination representing
daintiness and InuxprnHlvcnesa and trim
mings are limited to fancy collars entrc
dcux lucks rind soft silk beito and lies
Muslin lawns nnd linens are the fa
vorite foundations for dresses to bo worn
at tennis and garden parties for driving
fashionable resorts and upon the other
pleasant occasions In which girls who nr
not yet In the debutante class nro per
mitted to participate These simple names
of materials do not convey all that they
might however for the reason that mue
linn nnd linens in the finer qualities are
really glorified fabrics cheer iu weave
delicate in texture and offered In exquisite
Half a dozen of these thin afternoon
dresses arc not too many for the average
young girl to possess and it goes without
saying that two of them will he white
A white lingerie nnd a white linen are
almost essential to the summer outfit
This leaves four or more If liked to be
chosen in the wearers most becoming
colors The shades from which young
girls may choose are somewhat more lim
ited than for older women but the list In
cludes pink blue gray cream or pale
yellow brown and rose The darker
shades arc suitable for linens and similar
materials while tho sheer fabrics cannot
be too delicate In their colorings If they
arc to be made without the veiled effect
which is one of the fads of this sat > on
Among the simpler materials are charm
ing marquisettes showing delicate pink
stripes alternating with an openwork
pattern and there are dotted nnd figured
cotton marquisettes and muslins which
have all the beauty of silk and arc much
better suited to the youthful wearer than
even foulards or some of the rafter
weaves of silk
The cotton voiles new in weave and
finish were never more alluring nnd they
drape a girlish figure ns no other fabric
doe With pink and white rose and
white green with whlto figures and In
dull gray pin stripes a brilliant touch of
cqlor Is used perhaps a satin bow or a
piping on n round collar to give the drew
an air Narrow Valenciennes insertions
are lined for the most part on lingerie
dresses and even these are now often
trimmed with other laces or with em
broidery to differentiate them from the
ubiquitous ready made garment
r I OTHING is prettier in cut for a
NOTHING dress than the one
made with n straight line across the
neck reaching from shoulder to shoulder
after the style of Italian dresses worn In
I Should Girls Be Terrified by Snakes
IJEUE Is perhaps not one young
I T girl in a thousand or ten thousand I
who Ins not an inborn abhorrence of
I snakes She hus the feeling about a little I
garter nuke quite as much as about n
great bon constrictor confined behind bare
al the Zoo
With even the thought of the cold
clammy and creeping personality of a
snake a shuddpr passes over her whole
frame She does not atop to question this
sensation She knows simply that she
has It and that It Is a part of her being
She hliikn it fa something that she can
not overcome And In truth It can be
controlled only by Intelligent reasoning
nnd Iho cxcrciee of will power
Hut while the young girl Is conscious
of defy actual fear which she has of
Eiiakru she known that It is shared by her
brothers in like Intensity ifer mother
no doubt at some tlmo has gone into a
fullit owing to an unexpected meeting
with u small reptile
It seems a pity that the modern young
girls who arc abundantly clever and cou
rageous do not try to overcome this phase
of fear in their natures Tho snakes that
I may crosn their paths during their Bum
nifr rambles arc likely to be perfectly
I to hannlcba and nonpoisonous creatures
These small reptiles besides have n
work to do They devour an infinite
number of ln ecUJ that are Injurious to
plant life keeping such pests In abeyance
AVhen asuuku makes Its homo about a
barn or a mill neither rain nor mlco will
come near tho place
Aa the whole of the United States there
arc bnt four distinct species of poisonous
1kelithC rattlesnake courteously giv
Ing warning before his attack and of
which there are several varieties the
black water moccasin the harlequin
7 snake and the copperhead Tho others
arc merely harmless crawlers of the
earth They have not even fangs through
which to eject poison ao have their ven
omous relatives but very tiny teeth with
which they catch their prey
The prejudice that exista concerning
snakes ban undoubtedly been fosterod by
J a lack of dis aatlon between thost
t tr tbht sire venomous and those that are
> r 1 harmless Superstition and exaggerated
t i traditions have fed the natural aversion
I J o them and overridden reason and even
Itcccntly a young girl declared on her
h Au
mediaeval days The line Is horizontal
and the front and back are filled In with
bands of lace run crosswise A mar
nlsetto or dainty muslin dress made in
this style would have an Inch wide strip
of trimming cither a hand embroidered
strip or good lace finishing the top of the
waist front nnd back Then from the
Joint where the two strips meet on the
shoulder they would unite and continue
down the sleeves on the outside of the
arm in n single band
A pink dotted muslin was made in thin
fashion with an Inch wide piece of Cluny
Insertion outlining the neck and forming
the sleeve trimming The sleeves were n
arrow kimono cut with a band of the
lace finishing the bottom at the elbow
where an un crslece of fine white tucked
linen was seen The blouse was drawn In
at tho waist under n crushed belt of pink
silk nnd the skirt fell n bit full nt the
waist but mthor scant at the bottom and I
had a ten inch band of fine embroidery
worked across below the knees and falling
over a plain skirt of the striped material
There scarcely any dress designed now
for a young girl which docs not show u
low collar or the neck cut away to die I
return home from a walk In the country I
that she und her friend and killed four
snakes Probably they were little garter
snakes that could not possibly have done I I
her nn in f
At tho sane time another girl related
that she and two friends had seen a
snake just starting to cross a wood path
as they went along and that she should
have thrown a stone at it had she not
been prevented by n man of tho parl3 lie
Instated that they should stand back until
the annko had passed j
It glided along quietly and quickly II
she said further without In
looking our i
direction and it seemed HO intent on
HH own affairs that I was glad I had not II
succeeded in killing it I
It could bo detected that the humane1
example of this man who regarded
snakes without fear or superstition had
I made a strong Impression on this youugj
i girl nnd perchance had changed her men
tal attitude toward them
ERANIA ton tables are a subject of
VERANDA consideration and to
many varieties are offered for ale I
that It is really quite difficult to make a
choice There Is the tray topped table
whpec glass tray fits the top of the table r
and Is so framed that when in place on i
lop of the table the tray and the table
seem to be in one I
These are in Colonial designs for the
most part although there is a small
Jacobean table also fitted with a tray but
the Jacobean tablet arc usually of fair
size und without the fitted tray
Tho nest of tables with tray fitted to
the top Is very popular for tho veranda I
for tea and cards Sheraton table with
tho tray tops ure most attractive nnd
very beautiful arc those of satinwood
with an Inlay of green hairwood Per
haps the most Attractive of all tho ten
tables uro those with two leaven on each
side which are turned up when the table
Is to be used for tea
There are very useful magazine stands
foe tbo veranda or the country house
which have four partition on the top und
a little drawer underneath Time book
troughs arc also useful These have two
troughs one at the top and one midway
from tho top to the door and they will
hold all the books that one could possibly
care tohuo around on the veranda I
close the throat In a comfortable and
pretty way Older woman have adopted
the style to n great extent but it is one
universally becoming to youth while only
occasionally so to women who bl1 c
pa d their girlhood Low round collars
of embroidery arc almost always seen on
the linen dresses and any severity of cut
is thus offset by the graceful neck trim
A deep rose colored dress which would
sound a striking note at a tennis after
noon has been elected for n girl with
dark hair and excellent coloring The
blouse is simple nnd unlrimued except
for the rolling collar of rote linen em
broidered In rose and edged with a nar
row frill of Valenciennes lace set onto
I the collar with a narrow black satin pip
ing The dress buttons in Iho front und
has n simple linen belt and cuffs to match
I the collar trimming With this dress he
girl wears a wide brimmed rose colored
straw hat trimmed with n huge black satin
bow at the left side toward the back I
White and black pin striped marquisette
or muslin make a becoming and useful
dress for nlmoit any afternoon affair
and It can be given mich of an air by
the trimming used to brighten it The
dull gray tone of the material combines
well with rose color or pink while cer
tain shades of blue or yellow often lend
a delightful touch A dress of this de
sign was made with a slightly cut out
neck and a collarless effect wits achieved
by an application of trimming to mir
T is one thing to be a charming nnd I
gracious hostess quite another to haj
a pleasing agreeable guest It is an J
easy matter or it should be to make
ones self liked at any ordinary entertain
ment as a luncheon dinner c but
to visit in a house for fromthree dnys
to n month calls for if very different
exercise of character I
Consideration for others Is the first
essential of a popular visitor She must
absolutely submerge hor own likes null
dislikes her pet habits or Jdjosyncruhicn I
that could possibly interfere with the
will of some one member of the house
In which she Is a guest It Is important
that the visitor make herself hiked by each I
and every member of the bouuphold Every
family likes pence and contentment to
abide and the guest who has managed to
make hcraclf really unpopular with nny
one in the family Is not likely to be asked
again no matter how fond of her her par
ticular friend may bo
Consideration for each member of the
house must be carried to the most minute
detail A topic that is knpwn to be
disagreeable to ono must Dot be Intro
duced In conversation
This lust may
seem a email matter but Its results are
often far reaching A girl also should
always try to please and Ingratiate 1
herself with the older member of the
family Popularity among the young
I people is of small avail If apes friends
parents do not grow food of ono on a
I three or four weeks visit Their wishes
should be studied and carried out ns far
us possible and a half hour or eo at least
each day could be spent with them talk
Ing over events cf school or college which
are of such vital Intcriat to tho old people

I round the neck The trimming was
nothing more than a shaped piece of rose
colored sill with ends which fell almost
to the top of tho wide crushed belt of the
marquisette Tho sleeves Were finished
with a cuff of the same rose satin and
lace frilling while the skirt which was
short and narrow had n deep band of
the material cut the other way so that
the htriiics run around This hand was
headed by a tiny fold of rose satin
t IJILE the severer styles of linen
WHILE have low necks the line for
I these is higher than for the softer
models Voiles dainty muslins and lingerie
gone effects may be cut quite low com
I Punctuality in about the most important
I of any one characteristic to cultivate if
I the summer IK to be spent in u round or
I visits from ono house to another There
is uo house in which punctuality on the
part of U guest is not appreciated while
In many households a visitor who b > con
itinually late nl meal times or when tart
iig oT on a trip will cause uucndiug
trouble nnd irritation Nothing so annoys
an older man 011 the habit of unpunctual
ity In young people He may not bo al
i ways nn lime himself perhaps la has
the habit of keeping others waiting but
us the head of the family his wishes must
be bowed down to Many a girl has won
dered why she has never been asked a
I second time to visit ut some friends
home where the had thought she WUH
well liked Nine times out of ten the root
of the trouble will be found to have been I
tardiness In keeping a intuieuls on her
part Better bit down to dinner with the
hair not perfectly arranged or start off I
on a trip without having added all the I
little finishing touches that a girl thinks
necessary and to bear the consequence of
ones appearance than keep others wait
ing Of course there U seldom a real
excuse for not being on time Invariably
It meant a bit of laziness somewhere In I
not starting far enough ahead to get
A visitor should never cease to make
an effort to please It Is not the easiest I
thing In the world to think always what
onuli hostess would like and never of
ones own wishes but a guest who cares
only for her own pleasure in not apt to I
be popular Nor hould the little cour
tesies to the older people be forgotten
or dropped for a second A bright Good
morning to all in the dining room nil
breakfast time will start each one oft

paratively speaking to disclose the curve
where the neck nud shoulders round Into
cuch other There is this rule to observe
however in planning such a frock and
that is to have the curve shallow across
tho front and back Instead of resem
bling a U it should be like a crescent A
simple fold of silk an entrcdcux or a
narrow shaped collar makes n becoming
finish for the neck and then the favorite
frill of fine linen or lace may be added
below this Sometimes the lingerie motile
Is set on at the top of the neck and there
is no other finish
UndersleevoH are a feature of many
summer dresses and these show a little
below the elbow or more from half way
woman enters the room and remain
I standing until urged to resume her scat
This is u little act of respect that older
people are bound to appreciate and be
I pleased by however lightly they may up
parcutly treat the matter
All this for the guest consideration
which embraces punctuality forgetfulucss
of self respect and thoughtfulness toward
the old people There are points too for
the hostess to keep in mind She has in
I cited this friend perhaps first for her own
pleasure but having done fa it in her duty
I to da nil in her power to give the visitor
a good time and make her want to conic
again Ft must be remembered that no
matter how great ease of manner she may
I possess a guest Is always somewhat of n
stranger In a isfrango land and cannot be I
treated too casually Her wishes should I
be thought out for her for she perhaps
will never ask for anything beyond what
she is offered Lnlcs she be very inti
I mate indeed she must not be left too
much to her own resources although there
must nover be evident an linpret ion that
the hostess feels she must amuse her guest
Both really are arts and knowledge
worth acquiring bow to be u perfect
guest and also how to make ones guest
feel alvVayH at case
It Is notucccssary to entertain lavishly
to give a guest a good time Often the
girl who Is most used to formality will en
joy n quiet restful time with a friend of i
whom she la really fond far more than if I
each day had to be given over to strangers
I It js mistake to feel that a girl must be
I given just what lie is accustomed to nt
home She will enjoy the difference and
IK glnd to ace the intimate home aide of

labloxto knoiv before So long UK the via

between shoulder and elbow to half way
between wrist and elbow There seems
to be no hard und fast rule about tho
length of sleeves for such dresses As u
usual thing they como midway to the
hand but sometimes tbey end just below

length of the arm a length which de

A buff linen dress buttoning down the
Hand Made Fittings for the Room I
A AK1NG fittings for ones own room
M is a very agreeable task which most
girls enjoy and In summer time
when there arc many hours to be spent
over needlework many girls make it n
practice to prepare an entirely new out
fit of lace and linen fittings for their beds
and toilet tables
There arc just now a great variety of
simple bedspreads which girls can mako
with very little difficulty and which will
bo most satisfactory for regular use be
cause of their good wearing qualities
Among these are tho light spreads made i
of dimity not the tort that is used for
frocks but a somewhat heavier variety
These arc hemstitched or finished with a
hem above which li placed a row of iu
bcrtlon cither of lace or of fine sheer
embroidery or if a girl likes to do needle
I work particularly well a very pretty way
of finishing the spreads Is to use several
o rows of brierstitch in coarse linen thread
i There art white figured materials In
satin finish that look something like table
cloths in checked striped and flowered
designs either of cotton or linen and of
heavier weight than the dimity These
are also finished with hemstitching or
better Mill with a scalloped edge button
holed In linen thread These launder
beautifully If little or no starch be used
If March be used they become entirely
too MilT and shiny to he really attractive
except to those who like to see cleanli
ness of a glittering order
Those who arc ambitious to make mow
elaborate spreads may have them of linen
with n row of insertion tit the hem or an
edging of lace and an embroidered mono
gram framed In the narrow lace Still
more elegant bedspreads arc made with
squares of lace set in at regular Inter
vals These ore usually thiisIiid with 1
lace edge and between the blocks of lace
there are bands or vinci of embroidery >
The lace used is usually Vcnellati or filet
for the blocks and Cluny for the trim
ming Another design for a very beau
tiful bedspread is of cxquiMtely sheer
handkerchief linen embroidered with I
delicate vines and flowers and edged with
a rulllo that is embroidered in the bauio
With these spreads there nro bureau
scarfs or covers for the dressing table
made of the sumo material antitrirnmcdl
hi the same fashion It Is a fad with J
some glrlu to have one llower represented
I in the decoration of their rooms and
when this Is done the embroidery the
bedspread and on the dressing table
I cover are also In this design For the I
country house it Is always necessary to
have a warm covering folded on the foot
of the bed or otherwise at hand and I
this may be in all white satin or a touch I
of color otherwise absent from the room
may be very prettily Introduced here
The centre of these quills pr com
fortables ia made of brocade nud instead i
of the large flower patterns which bdvoj
been popular delicate small designs arc

The blouse also buttons In front follow I
ing a diagonal line and there is a medium
width belt fastening with buttons A I
round flat collar of fine embroidery 6n
Ishea the neck and the threequarter

blouse is given fulness by having a wide f
pleat laid backward at the shoulders and

I Pointed lines In trimming are utilized
effectively in a dress made of sheer batiste
with a tiny all over embroidered Dower
The skirt has u graduated flounce head m
ed by n bond of cross tucking which ra I
edged on either side with Valenciennes
insertion This trimming forms a deep
V in front and slopes upward at the
sides reaching almost to the belt In the
back The fame echcnio is carried out r t
in the waist trimming and it Is repeated IE
the sleeves A soft crushed pink silk
belt and some loops of the silk nt the
neck suggesting a tie complete this charm
ing afternoon costume
I now being used One girl who had taken
the wild rose for tho design of her room
had this as the motif for the embroidery
on her white spread and bureau cover
which was all in white linen thread Th
brocade quilt for her had also the
wild rose design in a very dainty pattern
and quite small but there was a touch
of pink In the design which set off very
prettily the pure whiteness of the rest oC
the room
TT MATEUR lace makers arc now in
M terested In Connemara lace which is
exceedingly effective and fine look
Ing while it docs not demand either the
time or the skill In tho making which
most hand laces do The lace IB a
Renaissance application on net ned on
the fineness of the net depends largely
tho beauty of the created product
Heal lace net of course makes the lace
most expensive but if the lace is to be
used for personal adornment the net
should be of a very good quality even
though not hand made and should be
delicate rather than of the heavier varie
ties Generally the lace is being made to
trim household articles in which case
heavier net of the curtain variety is used
The designs employed arc very simple
usually of the Celtic order and arc car
ried out in braid Different lace braids
are used such as are proper for tho
Renaissance lace and fine or coarse
braids are chosen according to the coarse
ness or linenets of the lace A large num
ber of padded rings covered with cotton
are used iu ornamenting the lace und
also laco stitches of any kind desired
Any of those used In Limerick or Car
fickmucroHS lace are suitable Bedspreads
bureau corers and all sorts of articles
for the boudoir are made of this lace und
also in the finer nets articles for per
sonal use such as fichux fan and slipper
bogs and trimmings
land made fringes art aed td edge
the lace articles when they are ot u
nature suitable for fringe decoration and
lace edges of all sorts biilliiu he almpjui
