YOUNGSTERS (By Catherine .Nlann-Paysant) New York. Jan. 16.—To outfll lb* younger members of a family takes some care and thought, even If one has not to consider ihe expense. Yet, after all. much depends upon th? good taste and forethought of the mother or whoever has the charge of the little ones wardrobe. At this time of the year, after the Christ* maa seansoa is over, there are many sale and numbers of bargains may be found, for with the children short lengths of dress goods and a bit of lace or silk that would ee^ve uo other purpose, in their case comes in handy; and really very accept able and inexpensive materials are thus to be found. Take for lnstanr ?! this little one-piece sailor suit, a suit that should be found In every child's wardrobe. The mother in traveling through the at ores on a sales day found a piece of blue serge of a not too heavy weight, and as it was two and three quarter yards In length it lust suited her for her little girls “•w school suit. At another counter •he found a lot of emblems thrown hodge-podge in a bo* among which were some anchors which she se cured, and with a pattern, a spool of silk, a half yard of canvess and some hooka and eyes, she felt her dollar and forty-live cents were well sp-uiL The skirt was laid in little plaits seerod onto a body with a pointed yoke to which was attached the reg ular ^sailor collar! The sleeves were full and gathered Into cuffs. On the front of the yoke, each point of the collar and sleeves and on the little breast pocket was one of the anchor emblems, a most serviceable little dress. 'Another dress, the .materials for which were picked up mt a bargain was of a plaid showing gray and red and green in a light-weight cloth and was made by an over blouse pattern with a gruimpe. The dreae was gathered to the waist un der a belt of red silk and the waist was bloused a little iu front, cut low around the neck, and the full sleeves came to Just above the elbowa, be neath which were under ones of tucked lawn finished with lace frills. Altogether this suit cost only two dollars and thirty cents, for the goods had been short lengths which make them very reasonable. As a Christmas present this little girl had been given a beautiful bear skin coat, far too good for school and as she had quite outgrown her -last winter's coat her mother deckled to make one. This took a lit tle more planning and hunting than did the dresses; but at last a piece of grey cloaking with a gay plaid underside like the golf raises of some years ago was found. It hsd a great er number of yards in it than the mother really needed, but the moth er intended to make the coat rath er larger than called for and aave the remaining pieces to make it over for uext winter. The model by which it was cut was long, in five pieces, two fronts, a back and two sleeves; it was loose and double-breasted, fin ished with machine stitching, turned back cuffs, and a notched collar. Two sites of buttons had been secured, klx of which were on each point ot the coat cuff and three on each col lar point. When finished no one would have guessed that the coat was a home made affair and had cost but two dollars and ninety-five cents. For best dress a blue and white voile was bought with bands of white for the collar, sleeves, closing edges, and for the belt; and for a contrast a piping of solid blue followed the edges of the bands. As the blouse closed at one side, a touch of indi viduality was given by containing the trimming band to the bottom ot the skirt, while trimming bands ot the solid blue above the hem add considerable style to the dress. With this dress was worn the white bear skin coat and a big hat of blue felt decorated with blue velvet, white pompons and silver buckles. White gloves, gaiters and shoes completed the costume to which was added a muff of lace and fur also made by the mother. whose pretty. well dressed stylish little daughter re paid her in looks for her work. Having outgrown those of last year, a dainty party dress w*as need ed; and the little girl, who went shopping with her mother this day, herself chose the material and pat tern. It was of French wool, batiste in a cream shade embroidered in pink dots. The model called for a square yoke of Valenciennes lace, bands of insertion and edging form ing the collar and sleeve-bands. The top of the dress was finely tucked, and the effect of Japanese sleeves was given by hands of insertion ap j plied around the armhole and ex I tending below the arms. At the waist the tucks again drew’ in the material to the belt-girdle of la^ and silk, while the front from yoke to foot) was a panel of the goods lined with bands of insertion. The effect was a princess dress. Whit-* silk stockings, white kid slippers, white gloves, a pretty gold chain studded with amethysts (her birth stone) to which was attached a tiny heart locket, and a little cream silk. | hand im in ted fin were the aecesories i to the costume. A brown cashmere of her moth er's was made over into a little Nor folk suit to be used as a visiting suit, for our little girl has numer ous cousins and uncles and aunts whose visits and invitations she was extremely punctilious In returning. For school wear a pretty red tarn was used as a hat. and a white feit poke shape of last winter waa re trimmed to alternate with the blus felt. A Scotch cap In the shape that is becoming to a child's face The cap is very simple and easily made, and a pattern may be secured front any good pattern-house. It consists of a top. aide pieces and «nr laps. Astrakau. Persian lamb, or some of the rough cloths will be appropriate. Ribbon ends are tack ed at the back and elastic pas^n* under the chin hoMs ttte ear-lap in place. Embroidery still hold* its p.ace and is still uned on all sorts of high rlaus garments. One o' the newest 1 ‘as is the u« of French crctoone which is a th’n gUusv fair>. The pattern Is rut •> it ai.d n; plied with a long and short stitch. It Is ef fective on vest8, collars, cults and belts, though its use Is given to wid er uses than these. Y’osts and vestees rind s.orr silk folds In different, color* used as n vest edge are favored. 8ome times they are copied exact tv from the men's vests, or they are i.norl In surpliced fashion or crosi-ove,* ef fects. Fancy buttons In oval, round or square designs are used and these more beautiful kinds of enam»1. j«w eled or carved varieties are seen on the semt-dresH garments lor After noons. Some of th^ new rklrts have ap plied hems; and these hems ar.? em broidered or decorated with designs done in soutache. Some are * *1'Min ed with quilling of cloth, velvet, rib bon or braid. Attractive dressing sacks aie de velo|>e>d from printed India linen, embroidered Swiss, Persian lawn, plumetis, challis, albatros, or the wash silks, such as China and pon gee, are useful fabrics with tr'm mlngs of Valenciennes or clunv laces. Hand embroidery which may be done at home, is a dainty additional dec oration. When silk jyettlcoats 1h list'd it is to be noted that it gives a little I more of the gentle swish than of 1 at^ Taffeta is. of course, the best mate rial for thiB purpose. The long, closeflttlng coat is much favored this season; It will be Blasti ed at the sides and have a smart vest and reversed cuffs. A dark coat will often have a white or very light colored Bilk vest well covered with a design in soutache braid, a flat collar facing of velvet, with Its edges outlined with braid, ’and the cuffH should be decorated In the lama fashion. The use to which tiny folda of taf feta and aatin are put are many. They tuay be applied In braiding pat tern* and 4n serpentine effects and sigaag design* on panels, fronts, vesta, hems or collars and cuffs The long sleeves, very plain Is used on the tailored costume and also on many of the afternoon gowns The “inltaine sleeve” is often seen in the semi-dreas costumes as well as the puffed sleeve overhung with long glove. The vogue of the aleeve and body in one continues In popular favor and is seen on waists and wraits as well as negligees. To give the best effect this feature should be outlined with insertion or braid or some ariety of fancy stitched. There are two old adages, “Haste makes waste” and "Make haste slow ly,'* that every one should employ when they undertake to cure a cough In a few minutes with preparations containing Morphine, Opium, Chloro* form or other opiates. They must stop the cough and cause sfeep quick ly. >1 »t *hey also dry up the secre tions sn.l constipate leaving oft tlniH* • **r worse trouble.
