of dozen of things. The lucky ones had

cloaks of all lines and lengths.
This spring a gir! has a much more
limited wardrobe so far as mere quantity
is concerned, hut she has a frock for
every dreamed ~of occasion and semi
And she knows just what shade of
change is essential for every hour of the
fashionable day, jnst when her neck
must be low, half low, "St. Cecelia” and
high,' just when her sleeves are long, el
bow or siiort. and just what weight of
shoe and size of hat is good form for
every social invitation, great or small.
Manually this sort of trousseau in
volves much more time, money, taste,
intelligence ami social cultivation than
the old-fashioned one. It is superior
Every gown must be carefully worked
out as, to- detail-in .petticoat, shoe*-, stock

Each dress is a complete creation and
there can be no mixing of accessories un
less it was so written in'the bond.
Vet there is some* comfort that in the
average very well-to-do outfit there need
Ik* no more than two bedroom or loung

one of lawn and lace. There need be

trip, a tramp or veranda call. Two morn
ing tailor frocks complete an ample sup
ply. The traveling dress will do for the
best and for golf and yachting a rongh
tweed serge is needed.
For afternoon there is the going-away
dress, which is dressy and pale and liigh
rieeked. It is jnst the thing for restaur- !
ant dimtei s anil calls and teas. Then
there may he a more elaborate and
showy high-necked frock white liberty

or the most formal luncheon*.
Still another secondary gown is a
tailor-made silk, possibly redinfote style,
to be worn with ail manner of separate
elaborate lingerie waists, an invaluable
gown for spring and summer, for all cli
mates and social conditions.
Besides the bridal gown, which does
service for most all elaborate evening
occasions during the honeymoon, there

And in (In- newest wedding gowns the
sh oves may he elbow, so there is no need |
for an lfxpensive ceremony costume to j
become a futile garment in after life.
The most advanced frocks for Easter j
weddings are made with lace yoke in

The best fern fof the house is some

J For growing in a window among other
flowers, or where space is limited,
choose tlie S. Piersouni, which is quite a
dwarf, and by many considered tiie most
beautiful fern in cultivation.
Ail ferns are amphibious in their na
ture and they require a lot of water and
frequent Spraying in order to keep them
in health. Once a fern pan is well water
ed. by keeping some all the time in the
saucer, the plant' will draw it as it is
needed. The fern is a gross feeder, and
requires a soil made up of peaty loam
and leaf mold from the woods, mixed
with one-third its bulk of well rotted cow
manure. They do better in pans than in
pots. They drop a frond each time they
put out a bunch of new ones. Let the
old one die completely before removing
it close to the crown. Shift to a larger
pan when the one it is in is filled with
roots. Give a shady location at all

The average mother with the care of
from one to five children usually plans
on two days as the required time in
which to do the week's washing and
ironing; this because custom has de
creed that the small tabby creeping on
the floor must be dressed in white. And
this means not only the giving np of tin
pleasures and enjoyments of girlhood,
but an increasing ignorance of current
events, for her time and strength are lim
. ited.
Much of this unnecessary labor is
avoided by a simpler dressing of the
c-hiid. Nothing is better than creeping
aprons—serge for winter, gingham for
summer. Slake them of dark colored
material and according to patterns which
may he bought from various pattern
Xufaeturers or their agents. One
u a day will lie required m the sum
mer, but the serge apron will last three
days. The serge apron will prevent cold
feet or legs of the child, as the clothing
is more evenly distributed. Also the
grime of napkins and underclothes will
be avoided, protected as they are by the
apron. __
How He Appears When Viewed
Through English Spectacles.
Tlig American man is more consist
ently considerate of and generous to
women than any fellow on earth, and
in no country does he get sharper snub
bing for his pains. The handling of
husbands by Wives in America amounts
to' an art. a profession, almost a sci
ence. Based on the theory that the
more one lias to do tiie more one can
accomplish, ladies who have hard
working, enterprising spouses simply
retire from active life. If he man
ages his office and business satisfac
torily, why not take over the house
and servants? What is known as “a
good husband" in the United States
is a first class, nontiring money mak
ing machine, who gives everything,
asks nothing and brags ceaselessly of
his wife’s perfections. Should he pre
sume to criticise a charred chop or a
flat souffle or complain at the size of
the draper’* bills be is set down as a
brute; and the wife is pitied as a first
class martyr. For such sins as the
above two men of my acquaintance
were forced to live in hotels a year at
a time. They had committed the crime
of finding fault with the impeccable
sex and were reduced to subjection by
having their homes taken from them.
For my part. I think the Briton’s way
is best.—An Englishman in London
They Spend an Astonishing Amount
of Time Over Their Toilets.
An eastern lady of high degree
spends an amount of time over her
toilet that would quite astonish the
most fashionable society lady. First
she has her hair dressed by her maid,
who. after anointing the long, silky
black lacks with a little oil made from
aloe wood or coeoanut, arranges it
simply in a long, smooth plait, low on
the nape of the neck, and decorated ei
ther with gold or Jeweled ornaments.
Next the bath is prepared as hot as
it can be. and in this the lady may
stay as long as two or three hours.
Soaps are not used, but instead there
are multifarious unguffists, secret prep
arations of the bathing women, which
render the skin soft as velvet and deli
cately perfumed. Oftentimes the face
is washed over with milk into which
has been squeezed ieinon juice.
The hair of the oriental woman is
usually beautifully long, soft and
glossy, and the way they arrange it Is
Invariably becoming to their soft type
of beauty. Perfumes'are much indulg
ed In. These are introduced In the
bath and permeate the garments, but
are rarely used on a handkerchief.—
Philadelphia North American.
There Are Fixed Forms of Etiquette
Governing; Their Treatment.
While mistresses and housemaids In
this country are struggling to solve the j
vexed “servaht problem” they do not
appear to take into consideration the
fixed forms of etiquette governing the
treatment of servants in England,
which probably do much toward pro
moting mutual understanding between
the servants and the served over there.
A housekeeper, a lady’s maid and a
head nurse belong to the heirnrehy of
a household. A lady’s maid wears no
cap and when in attendance on her
lady is expected to be well but quietly
dressed in black or some sober coloring.
Her wages are from SiSO to §200 a
year, with the reversion of her employ
er’s wardrobe. An English maid is al
ways called by surname, “Smith” or
“Jones,” but a foreign maid's first
name is used,. “Marie” or “Francoise.”
A lady speaking of her maid to other
upper servants, such as the butler or
the housekeeper, would style her
“Smith” or Marie,” but when men
tioning her to housemaids or footmen
she would l;e careful to allude to her
aa “Miss Smith” or "Mile. Marie.”—

Ail Amcrlc»n Should Give HI* First
Study fo Hi* Home Land.'
When Payne wrote “There’s No Place
Like Home," he gave poetic expression
to the love he bore toward the ingle
nook more precious than "temples or
palaces.” What flowers of rhetoric
/•ould approach in power of assertion
these fire little monosyllabic words,
"There’s No* Place Like H^me’’—to
gainsay which were impossible!
It is the great privilege of Americans
to tie able without hyperbole to apply
them to travel, for what is there in any
part of the habitable globe more
fraught with interest, instruction, edu

and uplifting of soul than nature has
provided, with hand so lavish, for the
delectation of those having the good
fortune to dwell in this goodly land?

The Rainy Day.
A well known artist recently received
a letter front a chap who has regularly
made it a practice to borrow money
of him. In this letter the chap who is
always in financial difficulties surpris
ed his correspondent by saying:
“This time I have decided to reverse
the usual order of things, and, instead
of borrowing from you, I inclose here
with $50, which I am going to ask that
you will lay aside for me for a rainy

Sir Robert Ball, the noted British as
tronomer, on one occasion went to a
remote town in Ireland to lecture on
his favorite topic. Arriving at the sta
tion, he looked for the expected convey
ance, hut found none. After all the
other passengers had disappeared a
man stepped up and said, “Maybe
you're Sir Robert Ball?” On receiving
an affirmative reply the man hastily
apologised, saying, “Sure, your honor,
I’m sorry I kept you waiting, hut I was
tould ta look for an intellec. ,utl gintle
man.” Sir Robert thought that under
the circumstances it would be better
not to Inquire what was the man’s idea
of intellectuality.
Old Time Railway Travel.
Third class passenger coaches in
England used to be couplet! on next to
the engine. The travelers catue in for
terrible treatment when any aeeideut
occurred. At times the engine was
driven tender first, in which case
frozen hands could he warmed at its
smokestack. The passengers were

a half in width. There was no roof
and not, as'a rule, proper protection
at the sides.
