Nowaday* youu* glrla, even those of very a«e, are much In view. It Is the «lay of youth. Girls dt sixteen and now wear expensive frocks would have been considered al too elaborate for their mothers— v yean ago. Expensive simplicity e ordar of the (fay. Some of the 'Paris models created for the "Jeune fllle" are really benu apparently simple and J'«t per la detail. Kever have I seen more navy serge m§ black satin used thnn this winter, wê in discreet combination, notes a fashion writer. These two ma make lovely dreases for girls, r—I link's which are as practical as are decorative and becoming, the long waistline Is very prominent • year, and for girls and women of *ges, A curious fact connected this fashion Is that it Is almost ■■hrersaily becoming. It really suits » «tout figure as well as a slender course a certain difference In being Introduced. may be said that all the newest m mi best Paris models for al'terhoon aa< «evening -wear show an exaggerat -«dfe long waistline. And the slightly üpawbed corsage, cut in sailor-blouse Is very fashionable. We hare a considerable choice in »e matter of blouse corsages.

Either is correct. As te the ceinture, here again we haje a wide choice. Picturesque sashes of soft ribbons are passed ad the waist, rather low down on LACE COMES INTO ITS OWN Material Hold* Place Especially for Ahe Black Evening Frock—Used on Velvet Gowns. As the season grows apace llie black lace evening frock holds Its popular ity. It is even taking on many differ flat forms; sometimes it is a founda Uan for a gorgeous drape of gold lace «r silver lace. Among the prettiest is the black Vacc creation which is unrelieved ex by a bunch of flnming flowers or • fruit. One such combined the fin rtiantllly lace with soft black char The long saBh of wide black ribbon, an Important feature. I caught with an enormous bunch mammoth scarlet velvet cherries, of the black velvet frocks have lang wing sleeves of the lace which «Angle with the lace panels let Into Ac sloes; others seem to have more jnnrfs than they can accommodate. Afternoon frocks are likewise entirely «f lace or In a combination of lace nnd saw other material. Handsome was a frock of a dark of brown satin, a material which holding its own this season, and t> flounces of delicate cobwebby e dyed a rich brown. The frock lace sleeves, or rather the lace bordered with a wide band fur. which seemed to have over the shoulders aud to veil *» arm. It Is dlfBcult to say where ftrwck of this description fastens and nr the wearer manages to get into If, h#» hats are clilc, and may be ta lovely colorings. COLLARETTE TO MATCH MUFF One of the smartest fancies in furs Is a dainty little collarette with a muff to match, developed in broadtail. the hips and then tied at one side, or a narrow girdle of plaited beads, min gled with coarse silks, is carelessly thrown on and knitted in front. NOVELTY IN WINTER GLOVES Heavy Silk, Reinforced Hartdcovering Is Introduced by Manufacturer«; Kids Match Shoes. Another novelty of the season, and oue of the most distinct. Is the Intro duction of silk gloves for winter. Orig inally these were created by their manufacturer to be worn with the protection of a muff, the object being to save white gloves, which quick ly become hot and sticky inside a muff. Uut It has been found that these silk gloves work so well for oth er purposes that their original mission is to be extended. They are made of a special heavy silk, and in addition are reinforced. One type Is a loose "slip-on" with elastic In 'a shirring at the wrist, the silk backed with cotton woven in with the silk. The other tjfce is the usual short-wrlsted silk glove, heavy outside with a tliinuer silk lining. < The Imported and domestic kid gloves have dressed themselves up to match shoes and stockings, and we see white glace kid guuntlets lined with a color! biscuit, pale blue, yel low, and stltchrtig on the backs to match. The reliable and Indispens able chamolsette is naturally a» much with us "late and soeu" as ever. FASHIONS IN BRIEF Full overskirts made of looped draperies ar® seen on models. Coats and Tuxedo sweaters are still in vogue, especially In brushed wool. The newest flower girdles have arti ficial flowers (tppUqlied • flat against a ribbon foundation. Braided bands, beaded trimmings and spangles have lost none of their popularity. A noticeable feature of tills year's shoe buckles Is that they are smaller than last year's. * Appliques of broadcloth, velvet or duvetyn on crepes and chiffons are a feature. Many of the suit coats button tight to the neck, have long tailored sleeves and are three-quarter length. Many walking boots and street shoes in russet are shown. In fact, there Is a vogue for brown footwear because of the many shades of brown In garments. Overblouses of every desirable col or imaginable, from tomato red down through all the smart brown tones and grays and navy blues are exquisitely beaded. The Twisted Puff Is Very New. Skirts are definitely longer and longer and there Is a marked tendency toward the irregular hem-line, espe cially in evening gowns, says a Marts fashion writer in Vogue. Many of the evening gowns are draped, and many are In brilliant colors. The decol letage, as a rule, Is only moderately low. Perhaps the most marked feat ure here Is the use of the rolled or twisted puff of the material of the costume or of some soft fabric. This twisted puff is put to a variety of uses. Sometimes It Is set at a low waistline to form a belt, usually end In a cascading scarf at one side of the front, which may even form a train. Again the puff may be used as the collar of a suit or coat, or It may serve as a finish for the sleeves, whether long or short. Gossip on Blouses. Hegulatlon tuck-in blouses of sheer lingerie fabrics quickly came back to favor. They are having a greater vogue than for any cold weather pe riod for several years, but practically all fabric blouses, except of cout se the severely tailored models, terminate outside the skirt and hip length Is the popular cut. Midwinter Frocks. Midwinter frocks are not forsaking all the fashion decrees of the enrllei fall season. They are more char? of the tinsel and embroidery ths' frosted the gowns of yestermonth bu' they are exploiting the craze for In aeta of contrasting color nnd material mil THE CATBIRD'S CALL ONCE upon a time, it Is said, all the birds guthered in the woods one night to meet the fairies, for they had been bothered so much with a bad Puss who visited the woods they wanted revenge. "What we want," the birds told the Fairy Queen, "is ta bother Puss. She has worried the life out of us, catch ing some of our family and climbing the trees and getting our children." "Of course, I cannot put Puss out of the way," said the Queen. "She Is far too ■ useful catching mice ; but I do not approve of her bad habit of catching birds." "She does catch them, and she must be punished," said the birds. "Do help us. Fairy Queen, br she will stay in the woods, and soon there will not be a taird left." "I will tell you what I will do for you," said the Queen, after thinking a while. "Puss I k very proud of her fine M rS/sVT \\ \~jifyov rv/LL\ r#e&*/•?£■ A. vsfiwrryoMJTi f tA/fi C Li oice and* if she thought anyone*could lock her I am sure she would be so shamed she would run away at once. "I will give to one of you birds the ower to mock puss, and every time ■he comes near the trees you can cry Ut at her in her own peculiar tones." All the birds began to chatter with lee, and then they fluttered about rylng to decide which oue should be iven this power. After a while a ^pretty little bird, ■jooty-grny color, which In places leepenect Into a blackish-brown, with a tail the lower part of which \Vas I beautiful chestnut, tlew to the tip •f a branch and spoke. "I have n I ways wanted a name," It aid, "to distinguish me from the öth r members of the very large family o which I belong, and If you will give •ie this power, Fairy Queen, nnd a ïame, I will be the one to mimic Puss lie rest of my life." "'I am afraid you will not think tlie ïame a pretty one," said the Queen but because you are so brave and ire willing to take this upon you, and vour branch of the family, you shall ' e given, too, an attractive song. , "You shall have the power to whis 'e and cluck and make mewing MS ER: IOOTTA frien whosa ruu show house and lasa week he asku me, "Pletro, how you Ilka veesit show on du stage."

The presence of wild fruit. in a lo cality helps protect the cultivated ones, particularly if the former fruits are similar to the lattCT and ripen earlier.

The pretty llttlfe bird nodded that he was willing, and up to the limb where he sat the, Queen and all her fairies floated, waving over and around him their wands. "Go back to your homes," said the Queen, fand tomorrow yon will find you will soon be rid of your tormen- i tor." The next day when Puss came to the woods and began to prowl nround she was surprised to hear "Ml— eu, | mee-ow, me-ow, mi-eu," coming from one of the trees. She looked up very angry, thinking that some othef puss had come to her hunting grounds, but she was sur prised to see looking down at her a saucy little bird, which again cried, "mi-eu, me-ow," while all the other birds twittered and chattered in the most tantalizing manner. Puss gave one more look to make sure, and then she turned nnd ran, while through the wood rang the cry, "mi-eu, me-ow, mi-eu, me-ow." And that is the way, so the fairies say, the Catbird got Its name.

To be sure, the tiny pow der puff and the box that has sprung Into fashion, and that womîn exhibit In public so frequently, must seem ridiculous to the masculine eye. Vet a little powder now and then Is an excel lent thing. For one thing, life in a modern city means that a woman breathes air laden with an unusual amount of dust u mm ~ - * ^ i m A Little Powder Is a Good Thing in These Days of Cities and Oily, Grimy Dust and 8moke. and that smoke from chimneys—even in the cities where smoke condensers are used—means that oily particles are constantly sifting down through the atmosphere. While even in the coun try there is the dry dust from the roads and the plowed fields, which blows into the homes, and settles upon faces as well as furniture. Now, the «pores of the skin are con stantly throwing off minute oily parti cles. The skin becomes shiny, and while the shiny skin is good form in Turkey, it isn't considered so here. A 1 HOW DO YOU SAY IT? By C. N. Lurie Common Errors in English and How to Avoid Them "HAD HAVE" AND "HAD OF." THIS expression, "had have" (or the expression that is still more Incorrect, "had or') is often used Im properly for "had." It Is bad Eng lish to say, for example, "If lie had have tried, he would have succeeded." Say, "If he had tried, he would have succeeded." "Had have" Is also used frequently and improperly In such sen tences as the following: "Had I have known that he was 111. I should not have visited him." The proper form is, "Had I known that he was ill," etc., or, 'If I had known that he was 111," etc. "Had" or "If I had" carries the Idea back Into the past, and there is no need of the word "have" to ex press the same thing. Qf course, the expression "had or' is sindply a case of mispronunciation. In the careless usage of former times, the dropping of the "h" before •'•have" changed the word to "ave," and from "ave" to "of the transition was easy.

Besides, the powder tatkes up the dust*that blows against the face, and prevents it from being ab sorbed into the pores. l'alcum powder is too heavy for skin ot the face. Only the purest grade of rice sliould be used, as other sorts will clog the pores. Kice pow der, however.
