New Sports Sweater for Fall
. ;,!, '· ::> '- : " , il;: 7:. ' \,, ". .: ..· No outfit is quite complete in these days without a sweater of some sort. And there is a wide and varied choice in sweaters, for they ar claiming more attention than ever before in their history. There are finely woven sweaters of silk, in gay colors, which one sees at the afternoon concert, at the country 'club, on the beaches and the golf links, and in any other outdoor meet lngs of fashionables. There are sweat ers considerably like them, made of ertificial silk, usually in more vivid colorings than the all-silk variety. Then there are the practical wool Iweaters, similar to that shown in the picture, and belonging to the same class. The new models are carefully de signed to the end that they may em lbody just the right style. In the ex ample pictured here, for instance, it will be noticed that the sleeves are dwell shaped and finished with a cuff and button. The patch pockets leave a turnover flap, and the new order of things in belts is recognized. The col lar may be turned up close about the neck if required. Because this is a sweater for real comfort in cool days it is rather heavy. Its usefulness begins with fall, and continues to the coming of another summer, for it reinforces the too light wrap in the depths of winter. It is an excellent model to choose for the young girl to wear to school during the autumn months, and nothing could be better designed or arranged for sports wear. Sweaters of wool stand the rough handling which they are likely to get from young people, and continue to look none the worse for it. Now that they are made in beautiful colors and with so much attention to style, the field of their usefulness is wonderfully increased. Three New Models for Fall • ..:: .': ·. . ;:" : ·-.. : · . .. , ::: ." ;:.: • .,,. . ..i· . · ... :· • Of all things, millinery requires careful choosing, and, after it is bought, the hat requires careful plac ing on the head, if it is to fulfill its destiny. According to an old millin ery maxim that destiny is to improve the appearance of the wearer. "You must look better with your hat than without it"-that is the exacting test to which each new mode is to be sub jected. The three new models for fall, which appear here, are types that will repay a little study on the part of those who consider things before buy ing them. They include a small tur. ban, a turban with extension crown which forms a halo brim, and one of the graceful wide-brimmed hats to which fashion is extending welcom Ing hands. Quite a number of these wide brimmed hats are shaped with brims turning upward at the back. This has brought in the underbrim trimming again and it is not confined to wide brimmed shapes. Short, curling ostrich plumes fit into the trimming of the underbrim in the most graceful way. The small turban is made of corded silk, and would be equally effective in panne velvet. The material is covered with corded tucks and serves for the covering of the hat and for its trim ming. The edges are finished with a siWler tinsel braid which has the effect of needlework. It looks like close-set overcast stitches, and needlework decoration is a feature of the new fall millinery. The turban with extension crown is made of black velvet and white chiffon. A bead work ornament trims the front and is made entirely of white beads. The soft and graceful brim of the third hat bespeaks for it, and for many others of the same character, first place in the favor of young women. It is made of velvet in black or one of the dark shades of fash ionable colors. The trimming is of white fancy ostrich and looks like a bit of fireworks, done in frost. It throws its sprays in front of the left eye of the wearer with an abandon un known to ornaments hitherto. But It is strong in the knowledge that it is less in the way of vision than many a veil. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. The Married life of Ilen and Warren O. ., By MABEL HERBERT URNER Originator of "Their Married Life." Author of "The Journal of a Neglected Wife," "The Woman Alone," etc. Helen Hears Some Unpleasant Stories Circulated by Their Discharged Maid (Copyright, 1915, by the MjcClure Newspaper Syndicate.) "Can I use this, ma'am? Won't it come apart when I wash it?" With a gasp of dismay, Helen took the dish. It was the gravy tureen of their best china, broken and crude ly glued together. "No - no, of course you can't use it! Oh, that girl was too sly S for words! She tried to mend that so I wouldn't Sknow! Now, An na, if you do break anything, I Mabel Herbert want you to come Urner. straight and tell me. I can stand anything in a girl but slyness. What's that? Something else Emma did?" "I found it behind the ice box." Anna held up a napkin with the deep scorched imprint of a flatiron. Helen bit her lip. "Throw it away. I don t want to see it. I suppose we'll find a lot of things like that. Why, where did this come from?" taking up a gold-banded plate. "I don't know, ma'am; it was way back on the top shelf." "It belongs to Mrs. Gordon! Anna," turning to her sharply, "there's some thing else I want to tell you. The Gordons have the apartment across the hall, and while Emma was here their maid was forever in our kitchen. Now I'm perfectly willing for you to have your friends, but I want you to have them outside. I don't want you to have that girl running in here. I don't want you even to know her. Do you understand?" "Yes'm. My aunt never likes me to go with the girls where I work." "That's right. Have your friends outside-it's much better. Now I'll send this plate back by the elevator boy. I don't want to give you any excuse even to speak to that girl." Helen had spent the day helping the new maid give the apartment a thorough cleaning. And now while Anna finished the pantry she decided to clear out the bookcase and rear range the books. It was almost three, but it was a dismal, rainy afternoon, and, cos q. that no one would call, Helen went at the disordered bookcase with real enthusiasm. She had most of the books out, and was sitting on the floor sorting over some old magazines from the lower shelf when the bell rang. The tailor for Warren's suit, she thought uncon cernedly. Then, to her amazement, Anna, without any announcement, ushered in Mrs. Gordon. The books fell clattering from her lap, as Helen sprang up, panically conscious of her old kimono, her dust cap and gloves. The very modishness of Mrs. Gordon's afternoon gown made Helen's disarray more striking. "Oh, please don't let me disturb you! But the maid said to come right in." "It's a new maid," stammered Hel en. "I-we're having a general clean ing-up day. Won't you sit down?" Although the Gordons had lived across the hall" for over a year, Helen had met Mrs. Gordon only in the ele vator. She was a pretty woman, but with an artificial society manner that Helen instinctively disliked. "Mrs. Curtis," in an affected voice, "I've come to speak to you about Em ma. I understand you found her dis honest. May I ask if that's true?" "Why, yes," wonderingly. "That's why I discharged her." "Oh, you discharged her?" "Of course. What did you think?" "Why, I-I understand that she--" "That she left me?" flared Helen. "I presume that's what she told your maid." "Oh, but I didn't believe it," hastily. "To tell you the truth, I've just had quite a scene with my maid about Emma. Jane's been in this country only eight months, and she's very un sophisticated. She believes everything that anyone tells her, and Emma told her a great many things." "I shouldn't wonder," dryly. "You may not have known it," stif fly, "but Emma was in my kitchen 'half the time. I couldn't go in to give Jane an order that she wasn't I there. Now that she's gone, I can tell you-it was most annoying." "I can quite understand that," SHelen's voice was icy, "for when Em Sma wasn't in your kitchen, your maid Swas in mine." "I suppose so. Well, I thought when Emma left that would end it, Sbut I find she still comes back to see SJane. She was there yesterday and Sagain this morning. Now that I have Sit straight from you that she's dis honest, I shall certainly forbid Jane f seeing her." S"Yes, I shouldn't think you'd care t to have her around." t "1 know I'll have trouble in keeping her away, for the girl's simply hypno. tized Jane. She's made her believe a all sorts of things. You won't mind, i I know, for it's so absurd, btt she ac tually told Jane that you didn't give her enough to eat!'" Helen caught her breath. For a mo nient she was speechless. "I found out that Jane was sending things over here, and naturally I wasn't pleased. But Jane insisted that the girl was hungry; she had worked on her sympathies so that Jane really believed her." "I)idn't give her enough to eat?" re peated Helen, dazed. "And she circu lated that story all through the house?" "I'm sure I don't know," with a supercilious shrug. "But, really, Mrs. Curtis, since servants are so gossipy, I think it would be just as well if your maid and Jane were not so friendly." So that was what Mrs. Gordon had been leading up to! Helen's face flamed. "I'm very glad you've mentioned this, Mrs. Gordon. I've just had a talk with Anna about this very thing. I assure you it was quite as annoy ing for me to have your girl in my kitchen as it was for you to have Emma in yours. And I shall try to see that Anna has enough food," sar castically, "so your maid will not feel. obliged to feed her." "Oh, I hope, Mrs. Curtis, you're not going to be offended! Of course I didn't believe a thing Emma said. You 1 ow how servants will gossip." "Yet it seems that you've listened to their gossip." "If I'd thought you'd have taken it this way," Mrs. Gordon rose haughtily, "I certainly would not have told you." "I don't know what you mean by 'this way!'" Helen rose quite as haughtily and followed her to the door. "I'm simply assuring you that my new maid will not trouble you. I've spoken to her already, and I shall speak to her again." "Well, I'm very sorry, but of course if you insist on being offended I can't help it. I'm sure I meant it in a neighborly way. Good afternoon." "Good afternoon." And Helen closed the door very softly to keep from closing it very hard. Rushing out to the kitchen, with ex cited, vehement warnings, she con fronted the astonished Anna. Never, never, under any circumstances, must she go near the Gordons' kitchen or even speak to the Gordons' maid! Because she had to tell someone. Helen repeated all that Mrs. Gordon had said, her indignation and her rage increasing with the rehearsal. When Helen was thoroughly angry, it always made her ill And now the thought of Emma's treachery and Mrs. Gordon's haughty insolence inflamed her to the point of hysteria. By the time Warren came home, her head ached, her throat ached and she had worked herself up into an actual fever. "Oh! What do you think? Who do you think's been here?" was her inco herent greeting. "And what do you think that sly, hateful Emma is saying about us?" "How should I know?" indifferently, as he tossed her the evening paper and peeled off his overcoat. "That we didn't give her enough to eat! That's what she told Mrs. Gor don's maid, and Mrs. Gordon came In here today and told me!" "Huh, she had a lot to do!" "And that isn't all!" excitedly. "She said her maid had to practically feed Emma because we didn't give her enough! That Emma was always in her kitchen, and that she hoped I'd keep my new maid out!" "Well, she's right about that." "Oh," flamingly. "Wasn't her maid always in our kitchen? The very first thing I told this girl was not to go near the Gordons' maid." "Just see that she don't then. What's the sense of getting all fussed up about it?" "Put, dear, don't you care? Aren't you furious that Emma should say such things about us? She's told ev Serybody in the house-I know she has - -that we're so stingy we didn't give her enough to eat!" "What if she has? We know it's not true, don't we?" "But other people don't. Oh, War ren, don't you care at all what people think of us?" "Not anybody who'd listen to a lot of backdoor gossip." "Well, I care-it makes me wild! And the idea of Mrs. Gordon coming in here with such a story! I'd love to write her a note and tell her just what I think of her!" S"Now, see here. Don't you pull off I any rumpus with the Gordons. We're in too close quarters to stir up any rows." "I stir up a row? Why, I haven't been near her! She walked in here with her haughty, overbearing air! I hardly said a word. You know I can never talk back." "Oh, you're not so all-fired meek. I'll wager before she got out you made her feel darned uncomfortable. And once you get a grudge against anybody-you never let up Now don't you try any of your 'getting even' schemes. Can that note .tjsi ness and steer clear tof her. Forget it!"
