New York Pity.—Comfortable house
or breakfast jackets that are tasteful
and attractive at the same time are
essential to a young girl's wardrobe,
as they are that of her mother and
elder sister. This pretty May Manton
design is simple and girlish and can
bc> made snug or left loose as occasion
demands. As shown the material is
pink French tlannel with trimming of
narrow black wash ribbon, but Scotch
flannel, flannelette, cashmere and hen
rietta cloth are equally suitable.
The back is plain across the shoul
ders and drawn down in rows of gat It
ers at the waist line; but the fronts
are gathered at the neck and fall in
becoming folds which can bo held in
place by means of a ribbon passed
around the waist, or allowed to hang
free as preferred. The sleeves are in
bishop style, with narrow pointed
cuffs and the neck is finished with a
wide round collar that is youthful in
effect and allows freedom to the
throat; but can be made with a stock
to match the cuffs as shown in the
small sketch. The edge of the collar
end lower edge of the jacket are scal
loped and give a pretty outline, but
the fronts are straight with ornamen
tal buttons and buttonholes.
To cut this jacket for a miss of four
teen years of age three yards of ma
terial twenty-seven inches wide, two
and five-eight yards thirty-two inches
wide or two yards forty-four inches
wide will be required.
Woman's Houso Coat.
No woman of taste allows herself to
be without tasteful, easy, negligee gar
ments. that are becoming at the same
time that they allow perfect freedom
and relaxation. This simple house
coat is specially designed by May Man
ton to meet morning needs and is
carefully cut and shaped. As shown
in the large drawing, the material is
eiderdown flannel in soft pink with
bands Oi satin ribbon in the same
chade, but the flannel can be found in
various colors and the ribbon can be
made to contrast with equally good ef
fect, while French and Scotch flannel,
flannelette, cotton velours and fleece
lined albatrcss are all appropriate. The
fronts are loose and lap over in double
breasted fashion at the upper portion,
but are cut away below the waist in a
novel and attractive manner. The
back includes a centre seam that, with
the underarm gores, gives a graceful
fitted effect that is universally becom
ing- The sleeves are in bishop style,
with narrow pointed cuffs, and at the
neck is a turn-over collar that has
pointed ends and is cut in a single
pcint at the back.
To cut this coat for a woman of me

Openwork llronze liuttons.
Some handsome metal buttons are
cut out in open work, and these are
used in pairs on the front of boleros
or jackets. The pair of buttons are
linked with i\ chain of the same metal,
which swings across the soft blouse
front of lace, chiffon or mousseline de
coie openwork. Bronze buttons, con
nected with a bronze chain, are among
the handsomest yet seen of these open
work buttons. Gun metal, gilt, silver,
cut steel ami oxidized silver and brass
buttons are all used. The bronze are
new. The eliaius which connect a pair
of buttons are formed of little beads.
These are preferred to link chains.
Tlie Faßhlon In Mourning Hnudkerclilcfe
A new fashion in mourning handker
chiefs has been Introduced, and bids
tail" to supersede the black border. The
new cambric handkerchiefs have hem
stitched borders of white, instead of
black. A band of black is introduced
below the bordei and separated from
it bj exactly its proper width. Th's
goes around the four sidts of the
handkerchief. Of course, you can ob
tain the black-hennued or black-bor
dered handkerchiefs by giving the
proper orders, but if your purse is full
and yoti desire tlie novelty you can
get the handkerchief with "inlays'' of
A Feature of the New Gowns.
Rather short sash ends with loops,
or a soft rosette finish at th» waist
line, are one feature of the new dressy
gowns. They are usually made of soft
silk drawn in with a tasseled finish at
one end, and attached either at one
side of the front or directly in the
Costume For a Girl.
Bolero effects are always becoming
to little girls and are in the height of
present styles. The very pretty cos
tume shown is suited to many ma
terials and combinations but. as illus
trated, is uade of Napoleon blue hen
rietta cloth with trimming of black
velvet ribbon, chemisette and under
slecves of soft blue taffeta dotted with
black, and is worn with a sash of
wider velvet ribbon.
The skirt is cut in three pieces, a
gored front and circular sides, and ia
lengthened by a graduated circular
flounce seamed to the lower edge. The
foundation for the waist is a smoothly
titted body lining. On it are arranged
the full chemisette and the bolero
fronts, the trimming being extended
on the back to complete the effect. The
skirt having Inverted pleats or gath
ers at the back is joined to the waist
and, with it, closes invisibly at the
centre. The sleeves are double, in con
formity with the latest styles, but
are quite simple notwithstanding that
fact. The full under portions, or puffs,
are arranged over and joined to tlie
plain lining while the upper sleeves
are made separately and drawn over
the whole.
To cut this costume for a girl of ten
years of age six yards of material
twenty-one inches wide, five yards
twenty-seven inches wide, or three and
three-eight yards forty-four inches
wide will be required, with one and a
quarter yards twenty-one inches wid
for chemisette and undersleeves.
A Valuable Cement.
To make a cement for rubber or
leather, dissolve one ounce of chloro
form. Clean the parts to be cemented.
Cover each part with the solution, and
let dry for twenty or thirty minutes.
Now warm each part in the flame of a
candle, and press very iirmly together
• ill dry.
Tlie Batliroom Window.
It is occasionally desirable ins»
bathroom window or in one having an
objectionable outlook to have an
opaque pane. The pretty frosted ef
fect often seen in restaurants and
saloons can be readily produced at
home at little cost. To a pint of stale
ale add a handful of Epsom salts.
Mix and apply with a brush. This
makes a hard finish that will remain
indefinitely, or, if desired, may be
removed by scrubbing at any time.
Wliv Silver Tarnlslie*.
Although every housekeeper is pain
fully aware of the tendency of silver
ware to part with its brilliance and
become tarnished when exposed to
ordinary atmospheric influences,
many probably do not know that the
cause of the tarnishing is the action
of sulphur in the air. Unless frequent
ly cleaned, the surface of silver will
become black in the course of a few
months. The best way to keep silver
bright, without the necessity of clean
ing, is said to be to coat the surface
with a thin solution of collodion var
nish diluted with spirits of wine. After
being applied with a soft brush the
spirit evaporates, leaving a thin,
glossy, transparent film on the pol
ished surface. Warm water removes
the varnish. Tarnished silver may be
restored by careful rubbing with a soft
cloth wet with dilute solution of potas
sium cyanide,—one ounce to a quart
of water, —followed by rinsing.
Art of Plnno Ornpintr.
An excellent way for screening the
unsightliness of the back of an up
right piano when turned away from
the wall, as all pianos of that design
should be, to improve the tone and
prevent a singer's facing the wall, is
one in w'lich a three-paneled screen
is hung on a rod attached to the back
ot the piano f>t the top.
The screen is made of three panels
cf black satin embroidered in gold
thread after the style of Japanese
screens, panels being laced to
gether i gold cord drawn through
small hrsk;B rings sewed at intervals
of two inches on the edge of the satin,
ending in gold tassels at the bottom.
The whole thing is then edged with a
heavy black silk or gold cord. The
effect is uncommon and adds much to
the furnishing of a drawing room or
music room, especially where the room
admits of the piano being placed at
one end, with tho keyboard facing the

Paris draperies are made especially
