! For Vacation Time
I . 1 : ■ — i - i K)\V that vacation time approaches the heart begins to long for a lit tle journey and the mind busies Itself with preparing the way. Travel ing in America ought to be a pleasure, and is, to those wtio know how to make the most of all our modern traveling conveniences, writes Julie Ftottomley in the Illustrated Milliner. Vhat with parlor cars dining cars and sleeping cars, good ventilation, dust-shielded windows, comfortable chairs and competent service, a jour ney is a recreation and rest. People no longer burden themselves wfth a lot of luggage, but think out how they may get along with as little as pos sible. This Is especially true if the trip is to be a long one and sight seeing its object. The first thing that engages the mind of the feminine traveler is, of course, the matter of her traveling costume and this article will concern K*elf with something of that. Although we • ant ga’-b ourselves, like Miss Phoebe Snow, all clad in v.'-lie, etc." we < an count upon as little dust on our Journey as on the average shopping excursion. Our millinery is thoroughly protected, be cause paper bags are provided by the porter and hats consigned to the rack from start to finish of the average trip. No dust can reach them. ( For traveling, a plain, well-tailored cloth gown of serge, mohair, covert cloth, fancy suiting or other hard TO WEAR ON TAILORED HAT Quill Trimming, Arranged Artistically, Is Sure to Find Favor With Smart Dressers. Corning back Into prominence and i feminine again after an absence of ! several seasons, is the quill or“feather , trimming. It is very stunning wh<*n 1 properly used on tailored chapeaux and gives its wearer a very trim and Jaunty appearance. One stunning model noted recently was of rough black straw, with the fashionable high crown and the equal lv fashionable rolling brim. It was quite plain and bare of any adorn ment, save two great quills which slanted upright, starting from the back. These were of the new coral shade, changing from a vivid coral in the center to deeper, almost black hue on the edge. And they gave just the note of color and air of jauntiness which the hat needed to make it dis tinctly chic. Use Men’s Shirt Sets. Girls are turning to account the smarl shirt buttons in colored enamels that come for men’s shirts. They are usually six sold to a set. These buttons have a link to thrust through the eyelet and are held by a patent fastener. When a girl uses them she works eyelets instead of | button-holes in front of her waist and in the cuffs. Sometimes the buttons are all used at the hack. Some have colored enamel centers with a rim'of striped two-toned gold: others of solid enamel in delicate tones with a design of gold; again there are centers of barred enamel with a plain rim in a deeper tone or of a deep ecru enamel with a colored rim. -■ ■ - | | ■ ■ The Mannish Blouse. The mannish blouse is not to be dispensed with in the wardrobe of the well-dressed girl. It is well to have some of silk, and remember that It Ip economy In the end to get a good quality. Get a china silk that Is really good and it will outlast three shirts . in an inferior quality. There is an f excellent variety that conies at >1.25 in a thirty-six-inch width. It is light and cool and vet of enough substance not to be transparent. finished fabric, is the proper garb. It cannot be too plainly made and must be well tailored—that is it must have good lining and interlining and be correctly fitted and finished. Such a gown cannot be outclassed. The fabric should be shrunk before It Is made up and it is obviously better to select a waterproofed material than any other when buying. If cir cumstances compel you to economise on your outfit, remember that it Is economy to buy good material for your tailored dress and to have it made right. It goes without saying that the hat should be pretty because all millinery should be that. It should be large enough to shade the eyes and small enough to keep out of other people's way. It need not be severely plain, and may even indulge in the charm of flowers for a moderate amount of traveling. It must have style. Three fine examples ire given here of street hats suited to this purpose. Street shoes and gloves made for service and well fitted are in keep ing with gown and hat. Tan Is the best color and one may wear a veil to match and carry a bag of the same useful and bright color. The shirtwaist or blouse may be either of silk or a wash material. A light-weight silk is most economical for long journeys. Fresh jabots and stock collars make it possible to look immaculate at the end of the journey SIMPLE LITTLE WAIST. if* ' ' '■lfW . This simple waist is of light blue armure silk, trimmed with bands of white silk set on with fagoting and ornamented with little gold buttons and loops of cord. The collar and cuffs are of em broidered linon finished with little ruffles of the same. Millinery Help. To rejuvenate last year's violets, shake all the dust out of the discard ed bunches which adorned last year's hats, and even the most forlorn and faded will respond to the magic touch of the paint brush. Separate them and apply a touch of water color to each petal. The result is highly satis factory." When dry mass them togeth er with several green leaves, which also have been “touched up,” tie with a strand of tulle or a cord of purple silk and the violets are as ’good as new. Old Nigfct Gowns for Dress Covers. I have for a long time used old muslin night gowns as covers for my best dresses when they hang In the closet. They gre easier to get off and on than bags, and cover the gown quite as well. Hang the dress first on a coat or skirt hanger, then rover It with the night gown, button ing the latter to keep It from falling. —Chi .Ego Inter Ocean. ,-r ^ ATTENTION EVERYBODY July 14, 1911, at 10:30 a. m. . i On the above date will be celebrated the 48th anniversary of the battle of Harrisburg, and a “Memorial Park” will be dedicated to the memory of the brave Confederate soldiers who participated in that memorable conflict, which is frequently referred to as the “Gettysburg of the South.” The following program gives the names and prominent position of some of the most distinguished men and women of our South land who will be among the noted guests of Tupelo on this occasion.
