There is a way says Dorothy Maddox in the Philadelphia “Inquirer." It is the best and only way. It is to wear them unconsciously. There is a sort of wardrobe discipline about the whole business. The advice I am going to give savors of extravagance. No use in half-way measures when a re form is on hand. This article was suggested by hearing a very well put-together woman' make the following remark: “Wear your clothes unm tney nave as many spots as a leopard. Only wear them." Then she explaimed that she meant one's good clothes, not old duds, that the beet ones may be tucked away in a closet waiting for a time when they can with due propriety appear before the world. She went on to deliver a very interest ing little lecture about the trick some women have of' saving and of saving gowns and wraps and hats and their good shoes and their best ties an<f their com pany gloves Until all the nicest opportuni ties to show them have passed. “What's the use,” said she, "to try to , appear unconscious of new things when they are treated so formally? A woman is conscious of every earthly thing she puts on, her body unless she has trained herself to wear the garments she looks best in.” She was met by arguments which she laughed away. One listener declared she could not af ford to tag her best around every day. “You cannot afford to allow your .clothes to conquer you. They will, unless you conquer them. Do this by all means if you do not wish to become the most fidgety of all fidgets when you find your self ‘dressed up.' ” Ugh! What a dreadful sensation that dressed-up feeling is. Children have It when they are put. into their , S-upday frocks, allowed a brand clean hander chief to hold and squeak about in brand;; new shoes. The poor things look and ■ act as if they were about to be executed ; or they are so silly In their vanity that ■ one wants to give them a Whipping. j I have seen, I do see each day, women] every bit as seif-conscious. Now the ! time has come ‘to look charming they aje miserable failures. So many nours and so much money have been spent on- the garments, but the women Inside of them cannot wear them, with ease, and so they might as well be fashioned from the rag bag. • ' I have a little friend who frankly de clares she never has a really new garment over tfhe day. A dear girl she is. She is not afflicted with spasms of looking well. ; and as a result she could wear a queen's.! robes in utter unconsciousness of mean, j Her scheme is this: When a new frock i comes home from the dressmaker’s she j does not think of hanging it away until j some fete occasion arrives, 'but the gown Is put on at home and worn for one or more evenings until, as the young lady expresses It, “Its newness Is Rubbed oil.” ! Not that It really is, but there is that | consciousness of being dressed up. It is j that' which disappears with a few wear- j lugs, and the gown Is ready for a trip ; from home. There is such a thing, although it may i sound a trifle ridiculous, as getting used i to the fit and feel of a garment* A new toque is betcVr for a few trips to market even when bought expressly for high | days. The head gets fitted to it. It loses Its j novelty, and. this is so with even so in- , significant a thing gs a_ neck scarf. I like I my young friend's plan. I find it works beautifully. This friend has a sister who is her op posite. If anything, the sister is the prettier of the two girls,, but that pretty face has not done very much xor her. Everybody always speaks in most enthu siastic terms of the looks of the plainer girl, and it is because she is never caught napping so far as clothes are concerned. She is always so dainty. No partiality Is shown by the mother, but one sister wears her pretty things and the otheT tucks | them out of sight and sits about in shab by rags waiting for a time to arrive when her niee. things can be brought out tor in spection. When Miss “Fuss Budget,” as her mother calls her, does get into her . good clothes the entire peace of the family j is ruffled. The poor thing shows every > moment she has them on, both at home and abroad, not that she Is mistress of her clothes, but that every rag of them literally owns her. * Have you seem those thoroughly de lightful little golf bonbonnieree which 'he i Chestnut street shops are showing asks ! Priscilla Standish to the Philadelphia ‘‘Press.” The girls who are golf enthusiasts this season are giving breakfasts and lunch eons dedicated to the game, and using these boxes as favors', filled jrilh the very latest thing out in the way of sweets. They come in several patterns, all of them dashing and designed to introduce P cay color bote Into the table decora tions. You may choose an ardent golfer of papier mache. dad in a sporting suit of brilliant checks and represented in the act of making the most remarkable drive of the day. Or you may prefer an athletic Gibson eeque golf girl In plaid-lined cape and hood, hair wind blown and cheeks oright from the links. Just as clever Is a very smart-looking little ease of golf chibs, also in papier' mache. It is easily taken apart to ar rive at the chocolate-wine-lrops tucked inside in a sac of scarlet silk. A correspondent from Reading ha3. written to the Woman’s page to ask tor a pretty color scheme for a card party. That is. a sehefne for decorating the halls, rooms and the tables. I have just read of a very effective way of dong this wlthfca color plan that Is entirely lovely. It comes from a South ern town. The colors chosen were violet, wnne and green, the .halls and drawing rooms showing masses of ferns, mistletoe and Parma violets. The mantel shelves and smaller tables were exquisitely banked' In violets and moss. The light was produced by candles in crystal and silver candlesticks. Each stick was tied with a huge knot of violet ribbon and covered with a shade of Violet silk. A polished oak tablp holding a huge ■bowl of fruit .nectar was drawn towards the centre of the room. The bowl chosen was of green and white china. It was \ •placed upon a white hontton dolly lined with green satin. The score cards were of violet and white fled with hows of violet ribbon'and little sprays of mistletoe* ^ Consolation prizes took the pretty shape of rosettes of violet ribbon. Attached to the long loops of the ribbon tinkled a multitude of little silver bells. * . * The day when a brida) outfit meant dozens'of each article of clothing a worn , an wears, belongs to the past, says "Modes." The keynote Of the modern trousseau is common sense. The .girl of to-day considers what her future life Is to be-and prepares for it gs well as her means will allow, but without any of the excess which once was apparent in every outfit of the sort. A wedding gown- that can be made to serve for evening wear, one of less costly material and- darker in color for dinners and the like, a tailored gown of hand some broadcl-oth, a simple one of cheviot for travelling and later morning and shopping use, two pretty afternoon gowns and two for mornings, with a half dozen odd waists, means not sufficiency alone, -but ample and even elegant provision, while the list can be further curtailed if need be. Underwear need never mean more than a half dozen sets, and can easily be kept from extravagance if the work be done by the girl herself. Dainty finish and line material there should always he, but hand-run tucks make the most eiegant of all trimmings, and there Is no need of costly edges If frills ‘be made of fine nain sook rolled and whipped on by hand. Cheap display is always vulgar. Exces sive elaboration on machine-made gar ments is far from refined. To be correct the material should be nainsook or fine English longclo-th, and all sewing except the seams should be done by hand, but there is no law demanding fine lace ami the like. Valenciennes edgings and fine needlework frills are attractive and desir able beyond a doubt, but they should be a second rather than a first consideration, the all-important place being given to material and workmanship.' * . * A “Valentine cake” may be introduced with good effect at a valentine party, says the “Woman’s Home Companion.” This can be gotten up in two ways; the first, a nieely iced , cake, decorated with candy hearts having sentimental mottoes on them. Let the cake be divided into the requisite number of slice®. In the slices the young girls draw or make a small sift with the sharp blade of a knife, and in sert into the opening a slip of cardboard on which Is written the name of some young man who is present. First a young lady chooses a slice of cake, then the gentleman selects one. In- those slices the later draw are such small articles’ as de note the sort of wife Fate has chosen to be each young man's partner for life. Thus, a sliver coin signifies wealth, a scrap of silk a fashionable wife, a penny poverty,' a tiny spoon >1 good housekeeper, a pen a literary woman, a small silver heart a marriage for love, a small brush an artistic wife, a tiny mirror a vain woman, a piece of crape a/widow, etc. • , • As will be peen, milliners d-o not re sitrftft themselves to roses, 'although this flower is more used than any, both in its natural shade mounted with a few leaves en aigrette, and' in almost any one of the pastel - tints and low-toned pinks, i mauves, Silacs and violets, -when they are considered to be most suitably employed in trimming tbe brims of bats and toques, Either laid along its upper side or under neath in tbe -form of half coronets or in a small cluster over the ear, says 'the “Mil linery Trade Review.” There is a pretty Targe demand for pansies which are produced in fanciful colore, as well as their own varied tints; some nesv varieties -with their petals prettily gauffred are in the market. Pop ples. which also lend themselves to fan ciful treatment, must be-reckoned among fashionable flowers, and the list of these is sure to be:-prolonged >as the season ad vances. Orchids, so much the vogue at the present diate, especially for trimming for toques, will probably go out with the winter. • * Snakeskin umbrella handles, with a snake coiled to form the top of the han dle, are also among tt'he novelties. The newest show the twisted snake in gun metal, with brilliant diamond eyes. A gold rooster, with a reddish green ef fect in his tail feathers, is another curious ornament for an umbrella handle seeking favor among the fashionable. Bolth gold and silver cats' heads are used, and a green parrot's head and ah equally green frog are not uncommon. All these animals h'ave 'their eyes formed of real jewels. ^ But in addition to these umbrella han dles, which are grotesquely novel, there are others distinctly different this year, Which are equally fashionable. The less conspicuous umbrella handles are really classical. They embody high ant. They are worth studying. The newest artistic handles have a curiously .beautiful greenish bronze effect They are long and slender and made of sterling silver, with a hand-wrought deco ration in 14-k'arat gold. Then, they are finished in greenish bronze. * * * Nobody is wearing corsets in Paris any longer. The corsets are made practically with the gown. Bodices are boned ih such a manner that the necessity for the small fence of whalebones and steel with which we usually encircle ourselves is absolute ly not required. In fact, those women who wish to look absolutely slim and as if they had been poured Into their clothes wear exactly one garment. Over this is put a dress that is petticoat and stays, oodice and skirt all in one. The method used in. making these combination garments is simple. A regular.boned though rather narrow and very soft pair of stays Is first made out of a single thickness of- silk. This is fitted onto the uncorseted figure j first, and then to,this is added the shoul der and back pieces, which are accurately molded to the form. Then a silk petticoat is fitted to -the lower edge of the stiffened lining, and then the dress Itself is made and draped on this general foundation. The effect is quite admirable, for instead of having on a pair of heavy stays and over that a well boned1 bodice, you are placed Into one garment which combines all. m a Beaver furs have not been worn for a good many years, but more and more of them are being seen this winter, and they are distinctly fashionable. One iroubie with beaver is that, though it is a prettf fur, it is very warm and heavy for this climate. It seems to fairly generate heat and when a heavy, jacket of it is put on it is suicidal to change for anything else. It is worn as jackets and capes. II is not a fur that stout women can wear, as they can the lamb, which fits the figure like a kid glove and seems hardly thicker. Beav er is pretty for children’s clothes, and a small boy and girl—brother and sister have a satisfactory touch of it on their outer garments. These are both long coats of gray cloth, the girl’s with a cape edged with the beaver, and a hat and vel vet trimmings the shade of the coat, while the round cap of the boy has a top like the coat and a broad ban4 of the beaver forming the edge. ' ] i , ■ » CATHOLIC CLUB EUCHRE Over One Thousand Players Contested the Games ' Last Night. There have\been euchre parties in this county for a number of years, and they all seem to have been successful, out the one that took place last evening under the auspices of the associated members of the Catholic Club, the ladles of St. Mary's parish, and by the Entertainment Com mittee of the club, was certainly the largest euchre ever held In this city. The very spacious clubhouse -can very easily accommodate over fifteen hundred people, and fully that number visited it last evening to take part in the cuchrc. Two hundred tables were occupied which shows that eotaetly eight hundred players were seated when the bell rang to begin the games at 8:30 o'clock. The three Boors of the building were packed with small tables, and a number of people were com pelled to play In the billiard and pool parlor. Then there were hundreds of peo ple who came to look on. The many hand some costumes of the ladles added much to the pretty scene. * The management of the euchre was the best that could be secured. It is often found to be a very difficult task to han dle crowd ' of people such as that last night, but so well planned were the ar rangements that those in charge deserve credit of the highest order. At the con clusion of the tenth game the players were summoned, to the second floor where Mr. James Kelly, Chairman o fthe En tertainment Committee, assisted by Mr. George Irving, called off the winners’ names In rotation according to the num ber of games they had won. The prizes were in the Library, upon long tables, and the winners were ad mitted according to their numbers. Mr. A. J. Corcoran called off the numbers and admitted the winners to the prize room. It was after midnight when the last prize was given out and dancing whs then enjoyed. The proceeds wiU be given to St. Mary’s R. C. Church. The committee in charge was:—Mrs. A. J. Corcoran, Mrs. A.

Champion Roseville Team Won Two Athletic League Games From Jersey City. NEW JERSEY 7n THE LEAD Bijou Pool Tournament In teresting Whist—Curling —General Notes. The run of hardJlu'ck~that has attached itself to the Athletic Bowling League team of the Jersey City Club did not let up in the slightest last night when the Roseville A. A. five were at the club to bowl a series. The visitors took two of the three games and there was but one exceptional score. Fortunately this was chalked up for the local five. It amount ed to 893, of which Newkirk got 218. This was the highest Individual score of the night. When the teams toed the mark in the first game the alleys presented a delight ful scene. On all sides the enthusiastic spectators gathered and greatly enjoyed the games. There were an unusually large number of ladies present and they showed the keenes^ interest and pleasure in the contests, while deploring the loss sustained by the home quintette. The ladies of the club are becoming deeply interested in the game and last night saw many outbursts of enthusiasm. Poor pins accounts for low scores. Jersey City h'ad 17. splits and Roseville 15 in last game. They were the worst pins the League ever bowled against. The score:— FIRST GAME—JERSEY CITY. S. S. B. S.
