The Devotional Gait of Smart
New York Girls
It Napoleon Bonaparte Came Back He
Would Find That Fashions Had No
Changed From Those of His Ow
Day High Waists Buttons and All
My Dear Elsa Never in my life
have I been more In need of Aunt
Elinors advice about self control than
during thq pasbrweek You remember
dar dont you the little talks we
used to loathe that she gave us on so
cial amenities I can hear her this
minute saying Do try to exercise self
control girls It Is a finer social asset
than pink cheeks French frocks and a i
motor car of your own Well the
other day I was obliged to draw on
this social asset to keep from shriek
Ing aloud In church No there wasnt
a service going oh I had merely gon
down to old St Pauls the churc
Washington attended when he was
first president of the United States
with a friend of mine who revels in
to bstone lore While she was gather
Ing data I stepped into the sacred edi
fice to rest Sitting in one of the com
fortable old pews inviting my soul
really taking forty winks I was
aroused by a masculine voice saying
Ina businesslike tone Step a little
more briskly please Having thor
oughly convinced myself that I was
not in an elevated train or a trolley
car I looked about and in the dim re
ligious light saw four stunning girls
walking slowly down the aisle with a
man In front directing their steps
Now what on earth do you think it
was A wedding party practicing their
paces Nothing of the kind The man
was a physical culture instructor
teaching his class how to walk in
I learned from the sexton pardon
the beadlethat these girls had been
taught to walk correctly in the street
in the drawing room In the theater
and this day they had been brought to
church for a dress parade Great fa
fliers I gasped What next So
you see I am in a position to tell you
that the devotional gait of the smart
New York girl is subdued and digni
fied She Is not allowed to lope swag
ger skip or mince her steps when
going up the church aisle as she might
do on the avenue TwIxt you and
me its not so much the sacredness of
the occasion that she wants to be pre
pared for as It is the Impelling fear
that If she goes the usual pace her
new tight skirt will jumble her up
physically even more than the jig saw
puzzle does mentally
Im mighty glad I played peeping
TQm at the show for my new suit has
a skirt so tight that I had serious in
tentIons of asking one of the ushers
next Sunday to assist me to my pew
Itthe skirt I mean Is exactly two
yards and a half rIde at the bottom
and as tight as a meal sack all the
way up and as for sitting down since
trying it on I have concluded to stand
up You know its thinning and the
object of every womans life nowa
v 1 1 if
days is to be vno fatter than draped
vertebrae Now Rlsadear if you do
decide to have your winter suit made
with a wder skIrt than mine be sure
and have a habit back Nd self re
specting skirt would bis seen with an
Inverted plait adorning the placket
opening And you would be considered
archaic in Gotham should you appear
with a waist line where It ought to be I
Vvliy even the tailor made skirts are
high walsted and the belts or girdles
meet the directoire blouse just under
the bust Absurd certainly but fts
back to the woods for you If you put
your belt In the place where the good
Lordintended it to go
You surely do have queer turns these
days Yesterday morning I was visu
ally sure that Napoleon Bonaparte was
sitting at the glove counter of a large
department store trying on a pair of
the one buttoned taupe gloves that are
so stunning this winter but on closer
inspection the flesh proved to be a
pretty girl got up Ind feminine form
Of the little corporal to the life She
wore the same long gray cloth army
coat with which we are all so familiar
the sleeves trimmed with deep fur
cuffs military revers and his saucy
looking corporals hat with a gold
cockade The coat fastened with large
Napoleonic buttons with the crown
N in gold on a jade background
The costume was a bit startling but
mighty fetching
What do you think of the capuchin
evening hood of white satin chiffon
frills and a spray of marguerites
These hoods are the smartest things
out for evening wear and are as easy
to make as a work bag for theyre
nothing more than big round hoods a s
picturesque as possible and trimmed
with flowers chiffon laces and ribbon
Dont forget the wide ribbon strings
though for they are too becoming to
be missed Such a confection will fit
perfectly over your Psyche knot and
not rumple it a particle
Yes I think your new stationery is
lovely but the next time y 4 u order
paper have your thumb print in gold
at the top of the sheet and note cards
instead of the monogram done in blue
Your mark on your stationery is the
last word in Individualism Ever most
sincerely yours M ABELr
No Drawstring to Break cr Get
For a long time the familiar variety
of laundry bag done in two colors
embroidered and held together at the
neck by a string has been an item
among the holiday gifts but in spite of
its prettiness the annoying draw string
renders it impractical
Here is a laundry bag that solves the
difficulty It has not only the capacity
for holding many articles of clothing
but the easiest possible way of receiv
ing them Simply lift one rvg from
the hook by which it is suspended and
the ling is opened wide It is equally
ready to take in or dump out its con
The necessary materials are one and
a quarter yards of art ticking or cre
tonne two crocheted rings one inch in
diameter or larger one and a half
yards of featherbone and one roll of
white bias binding onehalf Inch wide
Cut a four inch strip fjoni the entire
length of the material Now cut two
pieces twentythree Inches long and
twentyfive inches wide Round the
corners on the lower edges pivlde
the featlierboiic in halves and stitch it
en the underside of each piece ten
inches from the top as represented by
dotted lines in the illustration From
the ends of the feathcrboue shape to a
point In the middle of the top Care
must be taken to match the pattern
when the large pocket is stitched on
the outside Join the two pieces to
gether by stitching each to the four
inch strip of cloth with the seams on
the outside Find first the seams and
last the upper edges Sew the rings to
the points at the top
1 A bag expressly for tablecloths and
napkins may be made in the same way
from white linen or any other suitable
material and it large embroidered or
outlined initial or monogram takes the
place of the pocket
Guest and Hostess
No hostess should fail to be fully
dressed and ready for the first guest
It is unpardonable to let the first com
er see that he or she Is too early If
necessary neglect other things Never
defer your own toilet until the last
It isl not necessary to introduce each
newccimer to the guests already as
sembled It embarrasses everybody
An Informal word of general introduc
tion perhaps mentioning the stran
gers name is all that is essential
Later see to It that the guests meet in
The younger Is always presented
to the eldsrrthe man to the woman
Mrs Smith allow me to present Mr
Jones Never present Mrs Smith
to Mr Jones
