In “Checker Board”
Quite a logical sequence to the board, brilliant stripes gf the English cricket coat is making its appearance in the checker board coat and caps, of which a picture is shown here. Noth ing could be simpler in line and com position than the coat. The material will not allow decoration other than the plain horn buttons which appear on the cyffs and fasten the belt. These coats are just getting a start, and we may expect to see them with much gr«»»«*r fremiBiipy jn the spring. The simple round hat made from the same material is as soft, as the coat, and is really a garment for the head. There is a droll standing feather at the side. No one would think of de scribing it as pretty, but it fits the scheme admirably, for this outfit ex presses those characteristics 6f the young American miss which cause the French to say that she looks and acts like a young lad, without being bois terous or obstreperous, 1 he pert little single feather has a black curled tip and a sort white base. It is a sort of challenge to good fellowship. A soft hat for a younger girl Is made of velveteen or of plush, al though others equally good are made of plaid or checkered fabrics. such*as are used in coats.

BEADS OF ALL SORTS WORN No Article of Personal Adornment Is More Popular Than Strings of These Trimmings. Since the early days, when the an cients first wore strings of beads, they have become a permanent arti cle of personal adornment. Bean chains, ranging from the sup erb rope of pearls to the amber, jet and crystal necklaces, are festooned around the throat, and add their beau ty to the toilette. The short string of pearls is as fashionable as ever, and bead trimmings are enjoying a very prominent place. Many of the smartest evening gowns are trimmed with bead plaques. The bi-ads are so closely set together that there is no space between them. They are wrought upon canvas in the old fashioned mat and screen designs. These show baskets of flowers and birds unreal looking in their strange coloring. The peasant fashions are much in vogue, and the suspenders are deco rated with beads and embroidery. The most beautiful bead trimmings are those that represent the ara besque designs or black chiffon, crcpc fie chine, net or taffeta. Among the smartest evenings gowns are those showing heavily beaded tunics over a foundation of chiffon.

I wish you would give me an idea how to giVe a birthday party for my little girl who will be. ten in January. (So yx>u see I am writing in time.) I don't know' bow to entertain children (bat age. Give me something easy and at the same time enjoyable; also how to do about the candles and what to have for refreshments.—M. L. 1). I am glad you have asked me in time, for I am obliged to disappoint so many by not having their requests soon enough. Put ten candles on the cake, with a tall candle in the center “to go on.” Sometimes it's called the “life” candle. Serve cocoa with a marshmallow in each cup, and brown bread sandwiches with a cream cheese tilling; then ice cream, the birthday cake and candies. Let each child blow out a candle and make a good wish for the birthday child. You can hide pea nuts all over the room and let the chil dren hunt for them, awarding a little prize to the one who gets the least and most. Then if you ask the child what they'd like to do I ant sure she will give you some valuable sug gestions. Perhaps they would like to cut out and dress paper dolls or play some of the many guessing con tests. If you will send me a celf-ad dressed envelope, in care of the paper, i will give you the name of some in expensive books that mothers tell me are a great help to them in amusing their children.

Water Ib seldom appreciated at its true value as a beautifier, although it is frequently recommended by physi cians and occasionally advised by beauty. specialists. Quite possibly, if it came in fancy jars or bottles with a round price attached, we would give it greater consideration, but as long as it is both cheap and handy we are apt to overlook it as a helpful agent in our search for the magic remedy. The body requires a great deai of water to supply its needs, and unless tbe necessary quantity is furnished the skin suffers as well as the health. At least three pints of cool—not iced— water should be drunk every day. This flushes the system, carries off the ijn purities and gives the body its normal supply. Whether water should be taken with the meals is a question for tho individual to decide. Much is said for and against this practice, but the three pints a day eliould be taken as regularly a3 you perform any other of your daily duties. The first glass of cool water taken upon arising is the most refreshing medicine you can find, and the last glass at bedtime will do much to rest the nerves and make the sleep quiet and restful. The other eight glasses can be taken to suit your con venience. The necessity for water drinking must be especially impressed upon the woman whose skin is dry and with a tendency to wrinkle, and the woman who has a sallow skin or whose com plexion is marred by moth patches should be equally generous in the amount of water takeh into the Bys tem. In both these cases wonderful improvement is sometimes brougnt about by the faithful following of the above directions and the complexion clears out, the yellow look disappears and the texture of the skin changes in a surprising way after a few months devoted to the simple “water treat ment" described. if the body is overburdened wth fat, a lithia tablet in the glass of wa ter will prove helpful. If the system shows an excess of acid a tiny pinch of soda will sometimes correct the trouble. Just a little bit of soda— hardly enough to change the taste of the water—is advisable. When constipation exists the water drinking will be often found a spe cific and will usually benefit ail ordi nary cases. Where the constipation is chronic or serious a teaspoonful of ordinary table salt dissaved in the first glass of water taken before breakfast will sometimes ufford per manent relief. For the anemic woman a teaspoonful of sugar in teach glass of water is excellent and often brings decided improvement in the health in a short time. Firs: in the list of beautitters comes fri sh air, plenty of cool water, deep breathing and exercise. These are absolutely necepsary if one would have good health and good looks. Rreathe fresh air always; keep up a certain amount of bodily activity to keep the muscles elastic, keep the lungs active and the blood circulating by taking many deep breaths during the twenty-four hours; drink copious drafts of cool water every day in the year, and beauty of complexion, grace of body, fineness of skin and above all normal health and vitality will be very likely to follow. Sister Prue.—If you use powder, ei ther the liquid or the other kind, it is absolutely .necessary to give your face a thorough cleansing at night, else the pores will become clogged and thp skin muddy looking. Use cleansing cream first, following with a facial bath in warm water and mild soap, rinse in clear, warm water followed with a dash of cold and dry the face gently. I can give you a formula for an excellent cleausing cream, if you will send me the necessary envelope. Friendly.—It Is not well to i so heavy face* masks continuously, be cause the skin needs a ehahee to breathe and to eliminate the waste matter. When the face Is covered ev ery night and part of the day with a paste, it grows pallid and unhealthy looking. Wear the mask occasionally, if you like, but not too often. Bernice.—When the lines in the face are very de^p you will find help from the use of wrinkle plasters in addition to the massage cream. These plas ters are easy to use and very Inexpen sive and certainly aid very greatly in smoothing out the ugly creases in the skin. New Header.—The reason why the bleach prepared without oils Is more satisfactory than the greasy bleaches is because it stays on the skin and one gets the full benefit of the bleach ing properties. It can be used either night or day, as best suits the con venience and does not irritate the skin at all. (Copyright, 1912, by Uni vernal Press Syn dicate.) • Mingled Furs.

SWORDS AND TRAINS PUNCHING BAGS FOOT BALLS BOXING GLOVES BLOCKS GAMES TAKE CARE OF YOUR LOOKS Much Wisdflm Conveyed in This Ad vice That a Woman Gives to Her Sisters, One reason why so many women begin to “go off" in their looks after thirty or even earlier, is a growing habit of carelessness about their ap pearance. In particular, tho woman that marries and has children Is very likely to fall into the notion that “it doesn’t matter how mother looks." In deed, I have known women who seem ed to consider it a part of their duty to their families to get old and ugly as soon as possible. No woman can make a more fatal mistake. A woman wants to be proud of her children, and her children have an equal right to be proud of her. A woman who has become a wrinkled. ,faded, hmnped-up, dowdy, "back num ber" at forty may get a certain toler ant affection and perfunctory grati tude from her family, but she can never inspire the admiration and re spect. and willing obedience that every child should be able to render to his mother. Depend upon it, excellent wife and devoted mother, if you find yourself too busy to take a daily bath, too busy to keep your scalp clean and your hair brushed, too busy to go to a dentist at the first sign of decaying teeth, too busy to massage the blackheadB out of your skin and manicure your nails and provide yourself with suitable, be coming clothes, then you are absolute ly too busy. You are either being im posed upon by some shirker, or elBe you are voluntarily sacrificing more important to a less important consid eration. If it comes right down to a choice, madam, 1 think your husband would take more pleasure in your clean com plexion than in a clean pair of attic stairs, and I am quite sure that it is better to provide your children with a neat, trim, well-groomed mother to look at at table than to harass their little stomachs with some elaborate and indigestible "made dish."—Wom an's World. Novelty Buttons in Neckwear. One of the most striking features of the smartest neckv. ear is tile large use made of small button garnitures, says the Dry Goods Economist. Rhine stone, jet, crystal, cloth-covered and pearl buttons score, In the order men tioned. The fact that many of the button-trimmed novelities come rather high can easily be accounted for when one consders the cost of the novelty buttons used. At the same, the smart ness of the styles depends to a large extent upon the clever arrangement of these buttons. Girlish Gown. A simple and girlsh gown is made of soft white chlfTon trimmed with garlands of green satin leaves, ap pliqued to the bodice and skirt in bor der fashion. These garlandB outline the round neck of the bodice, the high waist line in the form of a girdle and the edge of a draped tunic where it is caught up with a green satin bow. The sleeves are Also caught up with a satin bow. Old Fashions Recalled. Skirts have widened sufficiently to make movement graceful and easy, yet they have no superfluous folds, and are simply cut. The three-quar ter length coats are of extraordinary variety in design, and the use of fur on the whole costume is most effec tive, the result reminding one very forcibly of the charming winter coats worn by women several centuries ago. Cuff Reinforced. How many of us have discovered that, when our tailored waists coma back from the laundry the third time the cuffs show signs of wear? As many of mine are bought ready-made, there Is no material for new cuffs. Now, when I buy a new waist I go over the edges of the cuffs with a tiny overhand stitch that is almost invisible, writes a contributor to Good Housekeeping. The cuffs then wear as long as the waist does. New Handbags. Handbags are seen In a variety of form. The newest Is the long double sack bag, passed through a ring to wear over the fingers or sufflcently large to wear as a bracelet. These bags are embroidered in steel or dull beads flu colored velvet or moire, to match the gown worn. 8mart Coats. Talored suits have smart cutaway coats or long Russian blouse eOats The collars are high and straight.
