The reign of taffeta was a comparatively long one for any fabric. Now it must relinquish Its place in the spotlight to soft, shimmering satin. Taffeta really ran too swift a pace. If so much of lt % had not been used we might have had it with us for a still longer time. Even its practicability could not save it. »Very few taffetas are shown for early autumn. Quantities of ribbon, especially moires, are used on the satin dresses. Dressmakers appear to have suddenly turned their attention to moire ribbon as a trimming. In most of these satin frocks the Egyptian influence seen in the more elaborate creations of early ■ spring is apparent Now It is modifled, * taking the form of loose hanging pan els and ribbon sashes placed about the Ups in perfectly straight lines ; the sash is not crumpled at all. Belts consisting of two lengths of moire ribbon finely plaited and joined to either side of a narrow ribbon belt frequently are placed about the waist line, as such a belt would be too bulky to tie about the hips. The preference, however, is for the hip swathing gir dle. Many of the black satin dresses have girdles of the material lined with white. Brocaded crepç de chines are much in evidence. Crepe de chine, which was so popular in Paris earlier in the season, is only now being taken up to any great extent by American women. There are some perfectly charming crepe de chine dresses, dark brown in color, with large floral patterns brocad ed in a shade even darker than the background itself. These are made with low waistline bodices crumpling about the figure and hanging very loose ly, almost In blouse form, and plain NAVY GEORGETTE FOR FALL Among the fashions displayed at the recent Chicago style revue was this one of navy georgette elaborately beaded in crystal, with green, black and silver satin girdle.

A Jade green cloak over a black «jvn and worn with a black hat is a ppy scheme; and green straw hats with black lace veils are successful with a black, or black and white cos tume. Green is amazingly popular for evening wear, although it Is not wide ly becoming, and In most cases neces sitates makeup. At the opera green dresses have been Very frequent Strong colors have momentarily driven pale shades into hiding, and womeu are wearing daring clothes both at afternoon and evening parties. Vivid hats with dark costumes con tinue to please, but the dark hats, all black, or black and brown, or brown and black, maintain their unquestioned style.

Sick persons should burn their spit. Fresh air is as necessary to health as pure and nourishing food. People should not sleep in over crowded rooms, nor with closed win dows.

Tet It is more reasonable for aa infant to sleep with grown-ups than to use a man's medicine in an attempt to regulate the delicate organ-ism of that same infant. Either practice is to be shunned. Neither would be tolerated by specialists in children's diseases. • Your Physician will tell you that Baby's medicine must be prepared with even greater care than Baby's food. A Baby's stomach when in good health is too often disarranged by improper food. Could you for a moment, then, think of giving to your ailing child anything but a medicine especially prepared for Infants and Children ? Don't be deceived. Make a mental note of this:—It is important, Mothers, that you should remember that to function well, the digestive organs of your Baby must receive special care.
