FOR THE CHILDREN
Don’t Dress Them Dp If You Want Them to Bo Really Happy. GLOVES AKB SHOES OF TODAY How to Treat a Skin That Is Too Oily—To Keep Clothes In Order. One mother enquires concerning the clothes of the children. I know very lit tle about patterns and fashions, but I do know this, that the child: who is “dressed up” is never a happy summer child, and the care of the ribbons and laces, and furbelows and flounces takes away all the pleasure of the small persons who have escaped from the imprisonment of a flat into the open air of a country village, or to the glorious expanse of the seashore. A simple muslin frock, untrimmed, and if necessary three or four clean ones, a day, will make a child happier and should make the mother more content than any of the other specimens of children’s clothes which I have seen on the fashion page of “The Pilgrim.” And I wouldn't have the Sunday clothes too fine, because the temptation to burrough under the sand or to make mud pies on the lawn, or to dig a canal from the broo^ is just as great on Sunday as any other day, end for the child it Is just as safe, whole some and hoiy. Another mother wants to know about bathing, and whether 8he had better ent her child’s* hair short, in order that it will be of less trouble during the summer. Concerning the bathing, while daily ablu tion during the warm weather is usually a hygienic neeessity.there may be some chil dren who are too delicate to bear it, and on whom the infliction of a swimming lesson is a positive torture. What is good for one child may be unwholesome for another, and a mother should exercise her judgment, so as not to err either in excess or omission. All the same the skin must be kept clean, and the child's taste educated in the right direc tion. Concerning the hair, whether it should be cut or left to blow at its own sweet will, depends to a large extent upon the mother’s comprehension of her child’s id iosyucracies. No human being can esti mate the sense of mortification in the heart of a child when he or she is made different from his fellows. Very many Little Lord Fauntleroys were martyrs years ago. and today I have under obser vation three or four boys who just “hate to have their hair cut like Buster Brown.” For my own part. I can’t un derstand the taste of the mothers who try as far as possible to reproduce in their own sous the boy who is so clever, who is so naughty, and who is so very like “the heathen Chinee.” and not pretty at all. So far as I have observed, most boys under twelve, who love to swim and romp cud play ball are perfectly willing to have their hair trimmed almost as close ly as is done for the unhappy wretches in onr penitentiaries, and when the little folk are taken away for their vacation, why not relieve them so far as possible of the dreadful trial of brushing the hair three times a day. 4 That much quoted French proverb to the effect that the woman well gloved and well shod is ever well dressed, will have a double significance in the newer modes, for among the very latest dicta from Dame Fashion is one that we are to show our shoes on all occasions. Even the most elaborate confections and the daintiest creations are to have the skirts stop suddenly somewhere in the region of the ankle, just as our grandmothers’ gowns used to do. This, of course, will bring the shoe into the full glare of observation, and the girl who has a dainty and delicately moulded foot will be the one to seize upon the opportunity thus afforded. Hence the girl who is always appro- j priateiy dressed will become doubly devoted to the fashion of the very shiny black leathers for her foot- j wear. Not only are they especial- | ly smart in themselves, appropriate for all occasions—which the colored shoe pre-eminently is not—but they do make the foot look smaller and more slender of build. And none among wom ankind is proof against this latter little attraction. The matter of economy Is one which very few among us are not compelled to consider. The colored shoe demands con siderable attention to keep it looking its best; while the shiny black leathers, the patent coltskin especially, only require# a wiping off with a damp doth and a polishing rub with a dry one. No need to bother with creams and lotions and special brushes for them. An instan’t rub and they are fresh and brilliant at new.

None Such Mince Meat In 10c Packages with List of Valuable Premiums. sheer in texture and both patterns and designs are small and neat. A.nd there is a large liberty accorded in the matter of heels. The Cuban heel, under many different names and dis guises, is much liked but for dressy wear the Louis lieeis are accepted. The military model usually goes with a sub stantial hand-sewed sole, and the ex tremely high French heel accompanies the flexible turned shoe. It is impossible to lay down cut and dried rules which will apply to all oily skins. While the same general rules should be observed as the basis of action it often is imperative to vary these rules to fit individual eases. In ordinary cases a thorough scrubbing before retiring with warm soapy water and cold or tepid water in the morning and during the day will keep the face in fine condition, but when the secretion is very great, as is usually the case in young or very robust persons, the warm, soapy face bath must be used twice a day. To determine the need of the morning ablution examine the face immediately upon rising. If a decidedly oily deposit is noticed, espe cially about the nose and forehead, visi ble to the eye or readily felt with the fingers, use warm water freely, following it by a cold rinsing, for the accumulation of waste matter thrown off during the hours of sleep must be removed. Two or three times during the day, when the .face looks oily, sponge or wipe it with a piece of soft linen wet with a solution of alcohol and water; a most excellent absorbent of fat and a good tonic if the alcohol is of the best quality. Twe parts of water to one part of alcohol is the usual strength, but it must be weaker if the skiu smarts after application. A few drops of one’s favorite perfume may i be added if desired. - • . After the walking dress has been re moved the skirt should be well brushed and hung in the wardrobe on two hooks by means of two loops. Or, better still, feld it carefully in the seams, pin together at the head and sus pend, so pinned, on the hooks. Some wardrobes are now made with movable bangers, which are very useful. Coats should always be stretched upon hangers when not in actu 1 use. Stoles and boas, whether of feathers, chiffon or fur, are always freshened up and benefited by a gentle shaking in front of the fire after wear on a wet day. The feathers become qnite crisp again under such treatment, while the chiffon loses the wrinkled, curled look that rain gives it, and assumes its normal fluffi ness. WHAT WOMEN ARE WEARING Belts Aw Most Varied—Under sleeves of Ret and'Chiffon. Belts are most varied In shape and make, but the folded kid and suede belts are very becoming. The newest are wide at the back and sides only, while they crush down to nothing in front. Undersleeves of net chiffon and plisse muslin come In pale shades to embel BLUB MUUj SOWN. llsh the wide cuffs. Evening sleeves and laee berthas to match are also to be found in up to date shops. A great deal of violet Is being worn this season in a,ll its tones, from the palest to the deepest. The present trend of fashion tends to present a fall wide appearance Instead of the narrow clinging look formerly so fashionable. The smart black gown is always desirable, and some of the pret tiest models are In black chiffon doth trimmed with lustrous appliques and a judicious touch of cream white. The combination of ecru laoe and white material is voted very smart by leaders of fashion. Quillings of ribbon are used on moiusseline de sole gowns, and are seen also on evening dresses of fine net and point d’esprit Cream material is more popular than ever. Its neutral tint makes it very practical, for it can be given an en tirely different aspect by the addition of a few touches of color. White flannel, heavily embroidered in wool thread, will be mnch worn at the seashore and the mountains. The picture shows a blue rcull gown with a wide yoke.

Shelt^p.l The chase had led them over a new turned field, down e long slope where golden rod and asters nodded in the September breeze, across an alder lined brook and up the slope on the other side. As they neared the crest of the rise Trenholme put his big black hunt er beside Miss Carrutilers’ roan. “I imagine we’ll turn b^k hare,” be called, nodding at a six rail fence just ahead. '■Nonsense!*' laughed the girl. “Not for that.” “Look,” he Mid. “Mrs. Calvert and the rest are riding north to find a gate. We’d better fellow, I think.” The girl merely tossed her head and, touching the roan with her hunting crop, rode straight for the fence. “Great Scott!” cried Trenholme. “Don’t try It You’ll”— Miss Carruthere had reached the fence. He heard her dear voice call “Up, Dan!” to the roan and saw the horse respond with a beautiful spring. Up they went, clearing the top rider by the barest margin, but there was soft ground on the other side. As the horse landed, Trenholme saw him suddenly sink to hie knees, while Miss Carruth ers was thrown over his head into the rowan beyond. Trenholme put the Mack over the fenee, and before they had fairly landed he was out of the saddle assisting Miss C smith ere to her feet Hie own horse meantime, recov ering beautifully from the jump, was thundering across the field after the hunt “Are you hart?” be askSd anxiously. “Not a bit” she said, wither nervous laugh. “Thank you,” as he handed her her hat and crop. “This comes of be ing willful, doesn’t it?" And to cover her embarrassment she fell to brush ing her skirt. “You cleared it anyway," he said. “If Dan hadn’t bent his ankle, it would have been a magnificent jump. You should be proud of it.” She flashed a look of gratitude. “You’re very generous,” she said. “See! Dan’s ankle is hurt He limps badly.” 'Trenholme hitched the roan's bridle to the fence. “Let’s sit under the tree over there and rest before we go back,” he sug gested. “Oh,” said Miss Carru there contrite ly, “I’ve rained your afternoon,” Trenholme smiled. “On the contra ry,” he said, “you've made it.” They moved toward the tree. “You should be in at the death; you always are,” said the glfl. “I feel I’ve filehpd a brush from you.” “Brushes are of relative value,” said he. “Sometimes I*d risk say neck to be in at the finish. Just now I’d risk my neck not to be.” Miss Carruthers flushed. “You’re awfully kind to conceal your disap pointment that way,” she Skid. “The disappointment is a very happy one for me,” he said. ’I’m afraid If I’d known hofe it would turn out I shouldn’t have had the moral courage to tell you not to try the fence.” They reached the oak and seated themselves in the mottled shadow, the girl with her back against the gnarled trank and Trenholme stretched com fortably on the ground before her. “Listen!” he said suddenly. From the distance the cries of the pack came faintly; not the long, rever berating bay of the chaae, but the short, staccato barks and yelps in con fused chorus—the hubbub that told of the death. “Got him;” said Trenholme laconic ally. “I wonder who’s the lucky man,” said Miss Carruthers; Trenholme laughed easily. “Well,’’ he said, “taken all In all, I'm convinc ed that I am.” He looked latently at Miss Carru thers, but at that moment her atten tion was centered on a bunch of neigh boring goldentod which she was idly filliping with her ungloved hand. It was some time before she raised her eyes. “If I thought you’d give me absolu tion I should be tempted to make a confession,” she said. “I’ll give you absolution now,” he said. “Therefore let the confession pro ceed.” “Well,” she said, turn lag to the gold enrod again, “it was simply contrari ness that made me try the fence. When I saw it first I was rather faint hearted. I fully intended to fellow the search for the gate. Then, when you advised me not to try it, I was determined to take It” Trenholme’s eyes sparkled with amusement, hut Ms voice became sud denly grave. “And Dan and I are os the hospital list in consequence,” he said. "Tour’ said the girl in surprise. “Were yon hurt? Hew selfish of me not to see it! And I’ve let yon stay here all this time. Was it when you took the fence?” “Just after that,” he said slowly, “when I lifted you from the rowan. It's a compound fradture of the heart” He saw her face crimson and her fingers tighten nervously on the hunt ing crop. “There’s only one remedy for such a case,” he said. The vote* that answered him was a wee. small voice. “If—if it were—mended, would It compensate the loss of the brash?” * m * k m; , m a When they reached the Clubhouse the hunt was back. “Hello, Teen!” Walters called from the stairway. “How’d you happen to fall otr? I got the brush." “Did you?” said Trenholme quietly. “I did better ttrnu that.” EICEtAKD BARKER SHELTON. ' • • •' -;>i. .iV . J&, ■ BOARD OF STREET AND WATER COMMISSIONERS. (Official Proceedings.)
