Having made a place for. themselves In almost every article of women's and chil dren's apparel, they proceeded to make themselves useful In all sorts of little furnishings for the home, and time adds to their popularity for making all these things. aslr A SriP^' are bathing suits and bath ing suits in materials and styles that differ considerably, designed to meet the needs of women who do more or less—considerably less—swimming. They may be conveniently clussed as swimming suits, bathing suits and beach suits—and in buying them one has to bear in mind just what tests they will be put to. The logical swimming suit Is made of pure wool yarns firmly knitted, elastic and shaped to cling close to the figure. It should fit perfectly and hold its shape Indefinitely. Such suits are to be had in new colorings and they consist of short close-fitting trunks reaching not quite to the knees and in an overgarment that is a little short er tlinn the trunks, sleeveless and hav ing a round neck. They may slip on, or fasten on one shoulder. Half hose and stocking cap to match often ac company them and they are usually woven in two colors, as orange and black, blue and red, green and white, black and red and so on. Such suits of narrow ribbon are placed and the same decoration Is used for the edge of the brim—the straps overlapping. The same ribbon makes the hanging loops and ends at the back. The sachet bags Illustrated are made of satin ribbons In light colors. They are merely oblongs of ribbon, sewed together at the edges, stuffed with scented cotton and tied In a bun dle with baby ribbon. Sometimes a tiny safety pin is fastened to the end of ,each sachet so that it can be quick ly pinned in the dress or camisole. To Swim or Not to Swim Hemstitching and small tucks make the decoration for the camisole of wide ribbon, with shoulder straps of narrow ribbon and little clusters of chiffon roses adorn It For the bags both plain and brocaded ribbons are used with celluloid mountings and rib bon handles. In the little coat or dress hanger, very narrow lace is used for embellishing the satin ribbon that Is shirred to cover it. Plain satin ribbon Is shirred to cover the pin-cushion that finishes the group, with narrow ribbon making the frill and bows, the flowers and cords that finish It. FELT LIKE AN mm Sif tllltSI '•k are for the real business of swim ming and are concerned chiefly with being simple and substantial. For the average woman a bathing suit spends considerably more of Its time on the beach than In the water and Is designed to be attractive as well as useful. Such a suit Is pic tured, made of a light-weight, woven wool and ornamented with braid. It has trunks somewhat longer than the overgarment and Is pictured In bla?Ii and white, worn with black silk stock. Ings and white canvas shoes. There is a sash of the fabric that slips through slides and ties at the front and pret ty cap of rubberized cloth brightens up this very smart looking affair. It is not so close fitting as the regula tion swimming suit—which fact often is advantageous to its wearer—and It is becoming. cpnwoHT votum NnriMru umok Mrs. Osborne Says She Shudders ^When She Thinks How She Suffered.
