Pompadour "Will Be Worn Low and the Sides Will Be Broadened. PEEFUMES^GAININUEE Arranging thf> Guest Room— The Bride’s Trousseau Elephant Skin Case. A very important part of the dress in the coming fashions is in the coiffures. 'lhe general tendency among the ultra fasltiouahie is the broadening effect at the sides and a pretty low and elaborate coiff ure. - 'This broadening effect on the sides, with a rather low pompadour and n low coiffure favors the wearing of low and very broad hats, and the back of the brim in some cases turned down as far as six inches and profusely trimmed with loops of ribbons and lovely flowers. With such elaborate hats severe costuming would not be in keeping with this style of tiead-tlress. They make necessary some fancy ideas in five sleeves and skirt and some striking to the bodice. The new form of pompadour comb lias made a palpable hit. This new mode} has a projecting bridge, which is des tined to accomplish what the plain pomp adour couib failed to do, that is. to retire • .e unsanitary “rat'’ froinSvomen’s eoif 2uie$. The latest pompadour comb has a double row of teeth—one above and one below. The advantage of the double row of teeth is that it not only keeps the pompadour from slipping forward, but also prevents the hair from parting and exposing the comb. An innovation has been made in side and back combs, which are made with ball point grip teeth; hence they cannot fall out. Nor, as might be feared, will they scratch or tear the hair. Moreover the teeth are wider apart than in the ordinary comb, to give that wavy effect to the hair so devoutly coveted. This comes in shell and amber and can be purchased at 25 cents. Women are using more perfumes now than for a long time, and they'have a novel way of introducing fragrant arti cles into the wardrobe. A soft mass of ! pink, blue or lavender is often noticeable glimmering faintly, througkt the front of a dress nodice, and it looks as though it wus the satin bows of the lingerie, j but it is nothing slea than a silken heart j delicately scented with sachet powder. During autumn and early winter popular scents will be those which society women are now adopting. A new and very strong essence of violets, a lasting and fasci nating perfume, which does not disclose its identity with any flower or scent is in favor. Other new toilet essences of the season are one with a delicate sug gestion of old Spanish leather, another a true production of the fragrance of Southern jasmine, sweet orchid, a pecul iar and pleasant perfume, and amber lavender, of which Parisians use a great deal. ' American women are more likely to patronize the perfume of some one flower than the bouquets, which foreign ers appear to prefer, ulthough with the exception of the violet, bouquet ex tracts are the leading extracts of the sea son. In most of tViem one seems to de tect an Oriental breath exhaled among Cowers, and very fascinating. Several new concentrated violet extracts are on the market, for in.this country there is always an endeavor being made to make violet essence more and more like that of the flower itself. A thoughtful woman after arranging the linen and towels in her guest room, had a vague uneasiness that something might have been forgotten which would add to her coming visitor's comfort, and it occurred to her to “visit herself” pre cediug her friend’s arrival. The next morning she moved into the guest room the articles she would have been likely to bring with her on a visit and took up her abode. Her first need was for silk to mend her gloves, but instead of going ber own complete work basket in the next room, she bought a fresh sup ply and began fitting up a work basket for the exclusive use of the guest. On her way down town she ripped oft a few inches of dress braid, which suggested the purchasing of some heavy cotton thread, besides cards of assorted hooks and eyes and a piece of tape.

Dr. David Kennedy’s NEW Medicine Cured Him Promptly. r< Constipatiofl leads to worse. Often it is the cause of appendicitis. Always it leads to dangerous chronic disease. It should not be neglected, nor should it be tempor. arily relieved with drastic purgatives. Here is a case in point: Mr. C. 8. Oeterhoudt, of Barrytown, N. Y., was distressed with indigestion, chronic constipation and kidney trouble for four yedts. He tried many medicines without relief. He heard of Oal-cura Solvent, Dr. Kennedy’s new medicine, used it and began to improve rapidly. All of his old com plaints have disappeared and he owes everything to Oal-cura Solvent. $1.00, all druggists. i lutely duplicated every thing which she was tempted to go to her own work bask et to find. The second night, on coming home late from a lecture, she decided that a hot water bag must be included in the list of essentials, so the next day one was hung upon a peg of the guest room closet. She found that a cracker was a very nice thing to have on hand at night and might prove a great blessing for one whep going to bed late, so a note was made that the room was to be provided with a tin box of crackers upon the day of the visitor’s arrival. Court plaster and- a new card of hairpins were added before the week ended, and knowing, thatxnew eomers often have hours of weakfulness among strange surroundings, she also ! provided that most delightful aid to com fort, a candle-lamp with a strong re flector—making reading in bed a joy. On the same stand which held the candle she placed some small volumes of essays, two volumes of Verse, one ■ humorous book, aud a popular novel, or i two. In fact she suppiie.1 a book for almost every mood. At the close of the week the room had gained an air of com fort and hominess which most guest rooms entirely lack. It was not money that brought about the magical effect, but thought. The total expeuse amounted i to but few dollars. . A bride’s trousseau includes the wear- ! mg apparel (except dresses) and all the household linen necessary for two years. A simple list of the latter inclr ’ four table cloths, with four or live u, „ ap kins of different sizes; twelve sheets, with adosen and a half pillow cases; two dozen towels with diish and kitchen j towels, doilies, centrepieces, bureau and | washstand scarfs and other linen pieces needed about the house. . * . One of the handsomest and most ex- 1 pensive dress suit cases is of elephant ; skin. This has fittings, an unusually large number of pieces, with backs and han dles of gold and cut glass bottles with gold tops. , HANDSOME GOWNS. Chi IT an Dresses For Formal Occa sions—Hick Appliques. Gowns of chiffon for dressy occa sions are very smart, and there is a new make of chiffon which will stand a good deal of wear. It Is very smart in brown shades trimmed with ecru or dyed face to match, combined with a soft, tucked front and huge under sleeves. Velvet bows figure largely on veiling gowns, and they are combined with ro settes and puffings of chiffon. Some times the huge chiffon undersleeves are tied In with velvet bows at the wrists. Square applications of figured or plain velvet are very smart around the lower edge of a loose sack coat or a full sum plaited skirt. Heavy embroideries of wool and che nille are used to embellish white cloth tailor made gowns and in general cos tumes in pale colors. Heavy knotted fringe Is still all the rage as a trimming for dressy coats and gowns. As fashions are of the early Victorian period the fabrics of that era are re A DAINTY WAIST. vived, and we can hardly Imagine an early Victorian frock without Its ac companiment of taffeta ruches and vel vet spots. Indeed we gladly welcome such a revival, for taffeta, let me tell you, is a worthy fabric for what may be termed the “best” frock, either foi day or evening. It is substantial and its smartness undeniable, and we should be very pleased to see it enjoy ing a foreipost place on fashion's list, giving place only, as the colder weath er advances, to -hiffon velours, the new fur plushes and the abnormally thick fabrics of the zlbeliae type.

TELLTALE LIPS. ” How to .lailio a Woman by tho Shape of Her Month. “I judge a man by liis eyes, but a wo man always by her lips,” said Benja min Franklin. Aud no mail ever read people more correctly. Queen Elizabeth once refused to en gage a, waiting woman who came with every possible recommendation, “be cause,” she said, “the woman is a tale bearer. Do you not see the downward dip of her lip? I will none of her.” 1 “In choosing a wife let her be a wo man whose lips do not droop at the corners,” advises a Persian sage. “If a woman's lips droop her husband’s life will be a perpetual mourning time. Nor yet should they curve too much up ward, for that denotes frivolity.” Select for a wife on^ whose lips are straight, not thin. When the curve or arch is lacking and the lip overhangs, not loosely, but well defined and firm, the owner is gen tle and ready to please. The mouth of sagacity is large and always well closed, with the line of the lips firmly defined. The witty mouth is thin lipped and so polished and smooth that light glgnces across it. The color is fine scar let. The possessor of such a mouth will say clever, scintillating things, sacrificing her best friend for the sake of an epigram. Coquettish lips are sharply defined, with a deep pressure under the nose and the corners inclined upward. Here lie laughter and fun and love of mu sic, flowers and gnimals. The smile is sympathetic, never tragic. Love of rid icule will be strong, but not in a mali ' eious vein. If the corners dimple deep ly the lips are quick at repartee.—Ex change. Map Making. Map making has kept pace with the progress of other arts, though its steps are not so loud and are heard oftenest in the schoolroom. It is really an art to make a map and has always been so. From the tim#1 of the earliest crude affairs to the elaborate and ex act pictures of today a great degree of skill has always been necessary to give a perfected representation. Map making is now at the height of its ex cellence and popularity. The man with land to cultivate, houses to build or land to sell must have everything set down on his map for reference. No body thinks of traveling any great dis tance without consulting a map. In deed it is almost impossible to escape It, for the obliging ticket agent thrusts It into one's hand with thoughtful.; kindness, mindful of the advertise ment within the pages as well as of the convenience of the tourist. Maps are so common now that there are no more little boys who think the soil of one state is green, another brown, another red. because that is the way it is col ored in the geography—Worcester Spy. A City of Roof Gardens. The majority of the houses in Buenos Ayres have but one story, whose flat roof serves all the purposes of Yankee lawns and dooryards. While the pa tios are frequently utilized as dining and sitting rooms, it is the universal custom to promenade in the cool of the day on the house topsj to sit there at morning and evening enjoying the re freshing breezes, extensive views and varied panorama in the street below. The children find their favorite play ground on the roof. There the nurses bring their Infant charges, the seam stress her sewing and the maid her mistress’ bedraggled finery to put in order again. The clothes are dried and aired and ironed atop, and during the “heated term” of this dewless latitude thousands bring up tbeir beds and sleep with the starry sky for a counter pane.
