The Modern Order of the Separate
Skirt is thoroughly estfablished anid
flourishing--every woman belongs to it
and some of them are devoted to it.
Therefore there are separate skirts
represented in all classes of appare!
from morning and utility dress to eve
nling finery. Among the newly arrived
models those of velvet, velveteen and
satin, will make an instant appeal
for afternoon wear. In these fabrics.
rows of flat buttons covered with
the fabric, are featured for decora
tion and 'the models are shown
In draped skirts, with widened hip
effects, in plaited designs and with
tunics of irregular length. The but
tons vary in size
Girdles on the dressier skirts are
usually wide but those on utility mod
els follow the style of street skirts and
are narrow. But the utility skirt, like
the tailored suit, indulges in little
fanciful elements of design in its
makeup, like those appearing in the
skirt at the left of the picture. Bone
buttons and cloth loops at the bottom
of the pockets and ai long silk cord and
tassel toward the hack of the skirt are
there because they are there-Just to
be looked at.
Heavy wool plaids in quiet colors,
shepherd checks and crossbars, to
gether with plain cloths, tell the story
of the utility skirt so far as materials
are concerned.
The model at the .right of plain
tricotine is a business-like affair in
which narrow silk braid and bone but
tons are used with effective discretion.
Braid appears to have fallen into the
hands of master designers this season
and has won over many devotees of
perfectly plain tailored suits and skirts
to its use. The picture tells the story
of this skirt in a way to make a de
scription of it altogpther unnecessary.
Rival Styles Present Their Claims

Now that the lives of women are
filled by so many interests, tailored
suits have manifold duties to perform
apd therefore the demand for the
fancier styles has outrun that for se
verely plain desigIs. .But both kinds
present their claims in the season's
offerings and both are represented by
examples of excellent designing.
Even in the fancier suits, skirts find
it expedient to remain quite plain.
They efface themselves in favor of
the blouse or smock. One is more or
leas' "dressed up," according to the
blouse worn, and it may vary all the
way from a shirtwaist to an embroid

"rFancy'" is to be understood as a
trade term for the type of suit that is
most sought for., These suits are not
mude trimmed, but they are enriched
with embroideries or fur or tucks or
braid, all used with originality and re

of the two shown above is a type of
the styles favored. with collar and
border of fur. It indulges in a narrow
girdle of the cloth, with hanging ends
at lte back, that are allowed hand
some flat silk tassels as a finish.
The utility suit at the right of the
picture depends upon tucks and but
tons for its embellishment and is as
smart in its way as its dressier rival.
It is a sturdy looking affair in which
one can face wind and weather, go
a-traveling or to business, and will

"I want to tell you a i'tory this eve
ning," said I)addy, "of ai hii; school. in
a big city \lwhere they do some very
interesting and iunusual things. And
I wanlit to tell you both :bolut thern,

"But this lime I wanst to tell you
something of the poetry they write.
Yes, real poetry. l'eople often write
poetry of chilhdrel and about thenm, but
It is not often that childreni themn

"But they d(o write it here, arind they
hav'e lots of full doilnig it.
"This school is a Ipublic school and
the principal there likes every one of
the three thousand children who come
each day to the school! More than
that. le is devotled to them, so he
thinks of all the things he can to make
the sclhool life more interesting and
entertaining and better.
"Every year the children get out a
book which they write themselves,
print themselves, and make the front
page illustration and the decorations
themselves. They have ai print shop
in the school. where not only do they
print this book, but they do all the
school printing as well.
"These hooks, howvever, are a collec
tion of the best poems wrltten by the
children during the year.
"There is a great competition, for
there are three thousand: children as
I said before in the schlol."
"What does comp)etition mean, Dad
dy?" Nancy asked.
"I'm not sure myself," said Nick.
"It mean,," Daddy answered, "when
there are it lot of people working or
striving to' get on and each competes or
tries to get ahead of the other. Just
as if you and your friends might work
for a prize! You would all be com
peting for the prize or all would be in
the competition.
"So when there are many children
who can all try to write poetry for
the book and when, of course, only the
best will be used for the school book
it makes every one try so hard to do
the best possible.
"They write poetry of all sorts of
things, of things they see, of visits
they make, of amusing things, of pret
ty things, of jolly things.
"Some of them write fairy poetry,
and little plays and acts and such
things in poetry, and then at times
they act these out and dress up in the
different parts.
"Quite often they act out the poems
at school entertainments and you can
see how that would be.
"For just suppose you wrote a poem
about a dream, or about a game, or

"It is so fine, too, to think that they
get up the whole thing themselves.
The children hand in their poems and
the best ones are chosen by the prin
cipal for the book and the entertain
ments, as I said before.
"Then after these are chosen the
boys in the print shop set up the poems
themselves, so that everything is their
own work.
"They write in poetry what they
think of different things and they
write verses to help along all sorts of
good work, such as when they're get
ting up posters they write verses to go
with the drawings.
