A "- lv' v V ' -- I ON ONE PATTERN Small Gowns Made on Same Principle as Earliest Doll Dresses Nainsook Best. There are many mothers who spend an enormous amount of money on the outtit for the baby, but even the greatest of mother love cannot stretch a meager allowance. Where there is-a-plenty of cash on hand it will save much anxiety as to the lay ette, and yet there is no reason why a very pretty outtit cannot be obtain ed with only a small outlay. For in stance, patterns used for tho finy dresses and flannel skirts are so sim ple anyone can use them, and tho same pattern answers for tho dress and wrapper, with a little adjusting. These small dresses are made on tho same principle as tho earliest doll dresses of children, when a piece of material is doubled over, an open ing cut for the neck, and the sleeves are sloped into the armpits and then sloped out again to the sides and bot tom. In making the dress or wrap per, double over twenty-four-inch muslin or flannel and in tho center cut an opening four and one-eighth inches across and sloping into a quar ter of an inch deep at the deepest point of the length-wise fold of the material. This needs no gathers, for it is the neck, but it has a half-inch box plait at the front, about two and a half inches in length. Shape at Outer lCdge. Then, at the outer edrre of the ma terial, cut a straight line about three and three-quarter inches from fold for the sleeve. Cut across the ma terial for live inches, rounding well for the armhole. and from this cut a sloping line to the bottom of the skirt, which is the full width of the material. Kach little dress is thirty one inches in length on the length wise fold, finished, sloping up slight ly, not more than an inch, at the side seams. Allow an inch and a half for the bottom hem. In this way each garment takes sixty-live inches of nainsook or flannel doubled to make thirty-two and one-half inch length. Nainsook can be obtained at fifteen cents a yard, and one and one-half yards of flannel can be had for seventy-five cents. Now at the back of the little dress, cut eight inches down the lengthwise fold for a vent. Face around tho neck and down both sides of the vent with half-inch bias fold of tho nainsook, and run in bobbin around the neck for the fastening. The front box plait is held in by the facing. Sew up the seams r.nd turn in a French fell. These should be kept as neat and dainty as possible, as thick seams hurt the delicate baby flesh. Make a half-inch hem at the sleeves and hem the bottom. Make Wrapper Same Way. This is all there is to th baby dress and the wrapper is irndo in the same way and of the same dimensions, save that it is cut from the neck to the nottom down the front and the edges turned back in a three-eighths-inch hem on each side. The facing is run around tho neck and white tape is used at the throat and at three and six inches to hold the wrapper to gether. Flannel skirts are cut tho same widt hand length a the tiny dress, hut slope to twelve inches across at the under arm seam. The neck open ing is six inches across and an inch and a half deep, the shoulder souths are two and one-half inches deep and the arm-holes three inches long and an inch and a half curve to give plenty of room. Tho best material for the little dresses, and it is not at all expensive, is English nainsook. A pink or blue outing flannel will answer Avell for the wrappers. Tt s well an select a dainty stripe, and pink fades much less than blue.

FIR THflMnNS SS EYE TALKS (TALK NO. 171.) Crooked. In many cases the first result of wearing compound lenses is a distorted appearance of objects. A door or window may appear wider at the top than at the bottom, or vice versa. A level floor may appear inclined up or down. This is a perfectly natural re sult and is to be expected. It is a positive evidence that the glasses are correctly fitted. The eyes have been trying for so long to adapt themselves to a defective condition, that normal vision seems strange and unnatural. It only requires perseverance for a few days to overcome this difficulty. Objects gradually take on a natural appearance as the eyes beoome accus tomed to the new condition. We cannot expect to undo in a moment a defect which has been growing for years. With a little time and patience however, there is no focal defect of the eyes which cannot be entirely overcome with lenses. DR. H. A.
