KINGSLEY ONE of the noticeable features of the spring styles is the leniency which has been shown in cut, decoration and length. To all types of wearers there is promised becoming- Bβ, which factor every woman prizes Tbeyond expensive fabrics, unique line or "the very latest, madam, from Paris." ; ; The silhouette- of the majority of coats is straight. There is no nip ping in at the waist, and a short line from shoulder to waist is reminiscent of empire modes. This is emphasized in various waists. The I back of one imported model has a I narrow belt of suede, which passes through button holed slots at each side and is held down by huge buttons. The belt, by the way, will be a notable feature of many of the spring suits. It . need not be continuous, many models having belts at | the back, which hold down the fulness which is creeping back into the cut. ** Bulgarian blouse the cut. a very rian blouse suits are a very Important chapter in the coat story. These have fulness at the upper por tion and a gathered ; peplum.

Russian lines with becoming fasten ing hint of smart • military 1 styles, which will ever be in favor ; with wom en who can wear jaunty lines.; Chinese coats are exploited in many of the brocaded jackets that are worn with plain skirts. ; These are made on the Mne of the old fashioned box coat. Some have vestee effects on tne order of a man's tuxedo. Frequently these Chinese coats ■ are made ': sleeveless when they f accompany , ; a , three-piece suit. Pleated skirts and draperies Jof all descriptions are worn with• these oriental jackets. * Combinations iof blouses and cuta ways are strong notes.

CARE OF THE SKIN MRS. McCUNE THE woman who has a ekJn sensi , tive to wind and dust is posi . -_ tively as mad as the proverbial March hare to ;go out ] without ? a touch cf cream under her powder and a chiffon veil big enough to envelop her entire head and ;| secured tightly un der the chin. To several correspond ents who mentioned the matter of eco nomy being a very important 1 thing to consider Zin the care 'of J their beauty, : " IV : have 'i suggested the \ buying of chif fon by the \ yard | for this ; big viel and neatly hemming the edges. ; This method of purchase gives a big square, the center of which may be put over 1 the / hat ■ crown; v and '-? after the durtain jis .- thus posed, the ends ; of' : the veil are caught snugly at the back and drawn taut under the chin, bo that no froliscome , zephyr " ? may creep underneath with its germ-laden dust and stinging chill. One good way ito I insure the closeness of «iis beauty veil is to cut : the chin -point pff -and loosely gather the rounded edge, which will drop the chin in a cozy and se cure pocket. A pale gray is the best color for this chiffon mask, for a deep ly dyed veil may be harmful over a skin already out of order, or that Jis inclined to cut up tantrums at f the least excuse. - . ' , ' For the wind-harassed skin, the one with pimples and the one with black heads the | nightly face wash is indis pensable, for each one must be cleans ed of dust ■ and oil before further treat ment can -,be . taken properly. . All skins, whatever, their trouble, respond better to a good soap and water scrub if they are first massaged with cold cream. Try and get a cream which sinks readily into & the f pores, and if this cannot %be had use almond oil instead for the rub. - .. ~ l^^te If there are eruptions, however, the skin must be manipulated with the most delicate touch, for otherwise the sore spots will Pbe bruised and so made worse. After the cream rub, wipe off the skin with a clean old clotlft when much dust and exuded matter will come readily from the pores, the oil and rubbing promptly starting their action. g^M TO MAKE MONEY EDNA EGAN ;igi tERYONE v knows that even; a r~\•-■-■: 1 moderately - good dressmaker .- v scorns ? the : making of children's clothes ;as unworthy of , her ; talents and we are all familiar with her argument that while it takes almost as long to make them as it does women's dreeses, no one > : is willing to pay in t> propor 'tlon.^'.— —" V? " % _ .•;-■::::-'■:..• v,-V-' '.:■':■■'. . " The poor little mother, therefore, was often in a tight fix, oin bygone years ir as to Ta i ay in which to ; pro vide her children with dresses that possessed some individuality and yet were within average means. '.'. : - It was not a girl ; but a grandmother to whom the mothers of at least one city are indebted for a solution •of the problem. Practically without income and with her dhildren all married off she ; found ■ herself % getting into a ; habit of living between houses. About the time t -she got ? Jane's children "} dressed for the winter she was reminded that she had promised to visit Gladys and • there ehe * soon found herself repeating the programme of the earlier fall -by making s more children's dresses. X Finally she made up her mind that she would be happier in a home of her \ own, and as she was an 'i independent little old lady she decided that she could certainly do now for a 'living the work > that ■ she , had done for years ,past, for sheer pleasure. Naturally there I was i tremendous >• opposition ■: on the part of her children, but she stuck to her scheme and > finally won their ! half-hearted co-operation. ■ ■:£■ y^:i j :; f<. With the courage of her convictions she made a round of calls on the best dressmakers in town, and told them that she would like to be recommended for work of : this character. In ad dition she put a "children's dress ! maker" card |1 n| her window ' and ad- ' vertised In the newspapers on * a some what modest scale. Of the three methods, however, she claims that the best and most satisfactory results came through > the assistance 'of dress ! makers. Her first work was ;to make up a few small dresses as models and [also some attractive aprons. Of |fcourse ■ fashions changed in children's clothes as well as in those of grown-ups and ;- ■ ■.-■ - - , v . ■ . • \ : rompers have largely taken •■ the place formerly occupied by aprons for p!?v time, but .as a : grandmother she be lieves ; firmly in the particular place of the apron in the child's •wardrobe and j refuses ;to give them up for her own f grandchildren at any rate. Apparently there are others possess- 1 ing i the same idea, : for her aprons have j sold i like the ; hackneyed "hot cakes.'V and whenever there is a lull in busi ness inowadays, quantities of them are made up in various styles and sizea. ,In fact the pieces left from wash dresses are s always kept with the ; idea in view, of their ultimate use as apron trimmings. '/•■■ v ;; For instance, when plain blue cham bray s aprons are : being made, there J is! usually found among the leftovers, pieces of i blue and white, or bine ; and * red checked or plaid material, which will make unusual or effective trim mings. ■;>■•■.. . ■-.'<; Dainty bonnets \ for babies are f also made of fine bits of material left over from the ? expensive band-made party dresses ,of ; older girls, \ and - attractive: ! wash hats for toddlers utilize other wise : useless scraps of 'men and i pique. In f all this 1 she does tho - old Ben Franklin ' motto Jof "a ptnny saved ?1* a . penny I earned," ; several better, ; for pieces thus worked "■! up sell for i many times their original value. .. Her price for children's clothes Is \ I gauged ■ almost entirely by the amount [of : work ;on them. Dresses; that are I quickly made on a sewing machine* an> ;mo re than ; reasonable. If i handwork lis i desired, naturally ;. prices are much ! higher, although": an ;• attempt is : made ;• to keep well below the standard set by the ; exclusive shops. A splendid business instinct had evl- I dently been lying fallow , for years, for i her • work soon outgrew the r possibili ties of her home and • she, opened a "Children's Shop" on aT * downtown street. Hgr window displays are un usually attractive and she carries t everything * imaginable for children's wear and amusement, from the 5 lay ette for the infant the stork is about to leave in ' some " fortunate home, up ; to ; dresses for girls well on In theti "teens." , .';';^;--"" 1 ~-J-_\. ; : .';.;.': .■!.■- •■: ; • If this fails to impresss, stop and think for a moment of the ; require ments of the new " baby and then |of | the possibilities in the way of won derful baskets and bassinets, to say nothing of the different kinds of per- * ambulators.
