WOMANS
WORLD.
In this age of travel anil amateur
fdw.ngrhphy the constantly accumulating
T :n:s and photographs which are gath
i: s<l her and there and treasured as plea
fmt reminders of happy days soon be
t .me a nuisance unless they are aranged
In gome convenient form. This is espe
i s.H.v the case during the summer when
J e dust seems to be all pervading.
if otic possesses a large number it is a
; od plan to arange a few choice speel
r.. T... on the walls and after a few weeks
replace them with other view's. Often
- - ■;* . ive arc discontented with home life
l; is simply for lack of variety. A change
la the arangement of the furniture of the
rantr.. a few new pictures of pleasant
peercs would do one a world of good and
c .s. little save the time needed to put
!; T. in order.
The size of the photograph portfolio
v-:;i depend largely on the quantity of
• holographs one has, but It is much bet
J,r to have it too large than too small,
t at two pieces of very stiff cardboard 21’
j ■ ; inches, and also cut a piece of denim
i: by iT inches. Lay the denim out on
j- smooth surface and place the sections
r:' cardboard upon it. as though arranging
huge book cover, allowing a margin of
. r.e inch nil around for turning in and
cote inch through the centre for the hinge
the portfolio. Turn down the edges
< :rl mitre the corners, then paste neatly
i.t position, using liquid glue.
IP the work is well done a lining is not
r’. nlutely necessary, although it Is a
t reat improvement, giving a more work
manlike appearance to the article. Tapes
should be fastened at the centre of top
r.i’d side to close the portfolio when filled.
If this portfolio is made of French cre
tonne figured in roses or chrysanthe
mums, in rich colors, and lined . with' a
harmonious plain color, tied with double
faced satin ribhon. It will be not only use
f d hut decidedly ornamental. If designed
for the library select dark, rich colors In
harmony with the furnishings of the
room.
• ’ *.
For those who wish variety, geese,
docks, venison, with everyday roasts of
tpnrk, veal, mutton and beef, are obtain
able for the piece-de-resistanee at Christ
mao time, while the choice of vegetables
is practically unlimited. Peas, asparagus,
e’ring and lima beans, corn and to
m a toes are all canned with such perfec
tion that they are almost as delicious as
oSm fresh vegetables. Hothouse cuctim
(bers and tomatoes add further variety to
toe IP* of winter produee, making with
It he canned goods a choice which should
meet all the requiremenin and 'imitations
■of the housekeepers of the land.
Fish and fruits are obtainable also in
great variety and delicious condition, and
'there is probably no season of the year
«t which the markets of ihe country are
60 well supplied. In providing these
■menus it is well to arrange always to
have a9 an accompaniment a relish of
same sort, a mayonnaise of celery, cold
slaw, pickles, anything that will act ni*
on appetizer. Little dishes of salted
rots, olives, pickles, etc., always lend a
frstive air to the table.
The aim of manufacturer? If* to make
veiling tulle.*? a? fine as possible.
In the very finest qualities the silk ip
spun almost a? fine a a cobweb. To do
this, while at the same time maintaining
a sufficient amount of ptrength, Is a
costly process*, so that the almo?t invipi
lde tulles now made are often rather
expensive.
Squar* meshed tulles have the prefer
ence all round, particularly the l-.l-i no h
r-inare, combined with a very tiny square
r:\Plaii^ rompos d of grouped lines,
forming haVineh blocks, are also to be
. t-n. and smaller squares combined with
circles or segment? of circles.
But when one thread crosses another
no additional thickness is apparent in
•the best weave?. Different sized ehe
itf;:«• ppots divide favor between them;
the very small, hardly larger than a pin
•point, and the large spot, beginning
about the pzc of a pea and often much
larger. The former may he grouped
V:*»*.dy. but*the. latter are generally dis
»:..nt from each other about 1% to 2
Miches. Velvet spois are alt*o in similar
lilies, and they run from the pea ?ize
' up to the silver dime, but undoubtedly
-ohenille spot* have the preference as
» no re becoming to the complexion.
The- <lemand is mostly for black tulles,
but white tulles woven in the same sort
of meshes spo.tted with blaok cheniile
also sell well.
Jus: now there is also considerable de
mand for brown or sable-colored tulles
with spo!s to match. They are especially
advocated to wear with hats and toques
trimmed with brown fur and for ladies'
»vearing collars or coats of sable. Spcis
«.f this color are also woven on white
; ulles.
Whether the tide be white or brown,
rite spot is preferred rather large. White
utiles are also made with pink, mauve,
v,ream. pale blue and other colored
.henille spots.
Moire silk is being revived for the three
'■inarier length coats, says the Woman's
Home Companion." These are beautiful
tor receptions, for all day affairs, and
for the theatre when evening dress is not
Vo be worn. When it is used the- pocket
daps. deep cuffs, revers and collar are
combinations of the silk and lace or are
embroidered. This is a season when a
'woman who is skilled in art needlework
can add many beautiful trifles to her toi
let which, if they are to be had only by
buying outright, are within the reach of
•oily the fery few. but are the latest touch
of elegance. Black and white silk em
broideries on eh;Ton and tafTeta are used
■ n many ways for trimming. Black on
white Is another beautiful combination,
while colored embroidery, including span
gles and jewels, is to be used extensively
on chiffon. Jet Is used, but not a great
deal. The line silk embroideries are In

“Cutters for girls/' said a sled mann
| facturer. “are little sleighs in reality, and
: some of them are very shapely and styl
; ish.
I “They are not new, to be sure, but we
i make them in greater variety now than
! we used to. Formerly we made them,
[ say, in half a dozen styles; now we make
them in a dozen or m**re.
“They can now bo bought cheaper than
I they ever could before, and they are also
, made for those who want them this1 way
liner and more expensive than even
“They used to. as. for that matter, peo
ple do now sometimes, nail a soap box
on top of a sled, to make something safe
to carry a small child in, but in these
| days if a box sleigh is wanted a girl’s
! cutter can be bought for as little as $1.50.
This cutter would have a well designed,
but perfectly plain sleigh body, With a
seat; but without any upholstery. From
that the cutters run in price up to $25 for
1 a perfectly modeled and beautifully finish
! ed little sleight, with a sw .11 body, lined
, throughout with silk plush and with Rus
| sian plumes rising above its correctly
I curved dashboard, this sleigh being
! mounted on fine fancy runners, the whole
making a fine modern sleigh in miniature.
“These cutters are used by girls and
small children, and also in place of baby
carriages. They are sometimes drawn, as
a sled would be, by a rope, but most
commonly they are not drawn, but pushed
by means of a handle attached, like that
on a baby carriage, to the back.”
* * •
As to the muffs—they are simply enorm
ous-perfect “grannie” muffs Qf our great
great- grandmothers, says the “Ladies’
Home Journal.”
The three-quarter length coat, which is
really the newr coat of the winter, is seen
with many cloth suits and promises to be j
quite popular.
Suits of corduroy, which is an inexpen
sive and most durable material, are much
liked and very much worn, by young
matrons and girls. These suits answer 1
for all but extremely formal occasions. ,
So many blouses and shirt waists are '
worn that the belt is an important ad
junct—In fact, it is attention to just such j
little details that makes the well dressed
woman, combined with that excellent
habit—neatness.
Belts are worn In every imaginable
form—that is, as to the sorts and kinds
of materials. But many of the new j
mod*-Is show belts to match the trimmings ,
of the gowns. In size they are either very ;
narrow or very wide. Some fasten in the !
back, beinsr laced together w’ith ribbons
through round loops of steel.
Just a few words as to hats, which w’ere
never prettier, with a simplicity of shape j
and coloring that is very restful and j
charming. The low, flat trimming is still f
the best, and the hats themselves are j
tilted a wee bit. but the tilt must not |
be too marked. AH sorts of heavers and
soft silky felts are worn. Of course, vel
vet is worn. too. but only with one’s best
frock. Ostrich feathers are becoming
luxuries nowadays, so they are kept more
stric tly for picture hats.
A smart little hut. of the now familiar i
tri-corner shape has novel decorations,
newer than holly berries or edelweiss.
Somethin# quite.novel is the spray of pine
cones and pine needles, faithfully repro
duced in all the roughness of the squa
mous surface of* the nut and the slender
green needles. The hat is covered with
mink fur. This will used i:i sleighing
by daylight, when many girls object to
wearing a hood, and by the girls who
skate. A fur hat with pine cones or
evergreen decoration is quite a suitable
headdress. The perils of wearing mistle
toe are well known, and the use of holly,
ornamental as it. Is. subjects you to com
parisons with Saini Nicholas.
* * *
Tailor-made frocks and also house
gowns show a narrow line of something
different from the material used elsewhere
in the “vest frit" of gilet. French dress
makers naturally give ••gilet” as the term
for a waistcoat. The colloquial English
gives n “vest hit.” which is perhaps a
more clearly descriptive term for such a
narrow affair. The gilet of blue plush
velvet on silk is not very wide. Now and
then you see one of knife-blade propor
tions./a mere line of gold embroidery, or
guipure, or Cluny lace or passementerie.
This “vest hit” distinguishes stnArt toi
lets. You will soon learn to find It on
modish gowns. '
Argentine silk is one of the newer fab
rics being introduced by “Importers" and
fashionable dressmakers. Tt Is Especially
suitable for evening clothes, ns It has a
silvery lustre which is even more pro
nounced by artificial licit:—electric or gas.
"VVelsbach" or candle light—than by- the
sun's own daylight. Hence these'evening j
shades of silk-pale blue. rose, nlh-gawen, I
maize, cherry or violet—are usually dis- j
played hy electric light in the stately j
shops. Pale-pink Argentine or heavenly i
“Chinese blue." as we now cal! Celestial
blue Argentine silk, are the prettiest of
prettty things In this line. The name
“Argentine" refers to the silvery lustre
on the flue silken surface.
* * .
Old furs are constantly appearing under
new names, so it has not been easy to
keep abreast of the times. We have finally
learned that "caracul." white or bl.u k
“baby lamb.” “broadtail” And “breit
Biliwants” are glossy variants of much
the same article. A new candidate for fa
vor is called “bisson." It is apparently
the new name for caracul or white “baity
lamb.” Perhaps there is some’slight dif
ference in the way in which the furriers
treat “bisson." But a new label is ex
tremely useful as a trade secret and many
women will strive to get “bisson” fur on
Christmas because it is the novelty of the
season.
* * *
Rush bottom chairs have for the time
being quite superseded leather ones as the
most correct for dining room use. They
are exceedingly durable.
i. * * *
Small Waste-paper baskets, having the
ef^ct of Wood on the outside and lined
with silk on the inside, have exceedingly
pretty hand painted designs upon them.
White panne velvet, printed .111 small
mixtures of squares of coral, black, par
rot greens and dull blue, Is used fotj scarf
trimmings on the murky-white foils.

CHRISTMAS SKATING
Good Races at Claremont
Witnesses By a Big Crowd
of Enthusiasts.
Ska ling races were the Christmas at
traction at th.e Clertnont Avenue Kink
yesterday, and bis crowds witnessed the
sport afternoon and evening.
In the afternoon the one-mile handi
cap furnished the best rjtee. Many
noted skaters took part and such a hot
pace was kept tip from beginning to end
that of the fourteen men who started,
only three coptpeted in the last four laps.
Sarony and Sv.an, of the New York Ath
letic Club, both of whom started from the
40-yard mark, finished In the order named,
even though Sinnirud,. the only scratch
man. kept getting nearer them until the
finish, when he was about a. yard behind
Swan.
Harold See fell while attempting to
lower tile interscholasilc record for the
half mile, completing it in 1.51.
lit the evening Peter Sinnirud. the ex
Norwegian champion, won the one-mile
handicap. Starting from scratch, he. be
gan to grind from the very start, gradual
ly overhauling Wray and Letts, his most
dangerous opponents. He caught them at
the twelfth lap, followed their pade* ftp
two. and then, with a burst of speed,
finished a winner by three yards amid the
cheers of the erbwd.
