Two Popular Midwinter •
Models in New Millinery Two as pretty hats as have been developed this season are pictured here. They are designed for midwin ter, but from them one may draw some interesting conclusions for spring. They evidence very fine workman ship, they are hand-made and come under the meaning of that phrase “real millinery,” which one hears so often nowadays. But what marks them most distinct ly aB belonging to a new order is the very notable simplicity of treatment in the matter of trimming. It is an artful simplicity, requiring much art to produce with such success. Shapes are so beautiful in them selves that lines must not be lost by trimming. The shape is the thing. There is nothing td conceal about any good one, hence the simple manage ment of trimmings. A hand-made velvet hat is shown in figure 1. It is of black velvet faced with ono of the new crepes in white. There Is a shirred collar of lace about the crown. The brim allows itself r.n eccentricity at the back. It has an upturned cape under which white os trich plumes, tipped with gray shad ing into black, are placed. They seem to nestle there blending the hat into the figure of the wearer. An embossed velvet is employed in the pretty hat shown in Figure 2. Such a covering presupposes the sim plest trimming, therefore nothing could be better than the soft pure white feather-spray which appears to be thrust through a slash in the vel vet. It is fastened with stitches plac ed with great care so that they are hidden in the velvet leaf which is raised on the surface of the hat cover ing. This is commendable millinery. It requires fine needlework. The shapes are notably moderate in size. It is quite likely that size will dwindle and that the spring will find us affecting small close-fitting headwear. JULIA 30TTOMLEY. TO HOLD THE THERMOMETER Decorative Affair That Can Be Made Without Much Trouble and Is Very Useful. A thermometer is a very useful lit tle article for hanging up in a bed room, or bathroom, but by itself it is not a particularly sightly object, and a daeoratlve holder for it can be made without much trouble, and will greatly improve its appearance. The size of the holder must, of course, be governed by the size of the thermometer which is to find a place upon it, but it Bhould be made in about the proportion of that shown in the sketch. For the foundation, a piece of stiff cardboard is used, and a small hook sewm on to the upper part, holes hav ing been made in the cardboard pre viously for the needle and thread to pass through. The board is next smoothly covered with velvet, turned over at the edges and fastened on at the back with Seccotine or some other strong ad hesive, a small hole for the hook to pass through. The edges are finished off with a fine silk cord carried into three lit tle loops at each of the lower corners. A loop of ribbon with a rosette bow is attached to the upper part for sus pending it from a nail in the wall, and the holder Is further ornamented with two little ioops of ribbon sewn on either side. Cleaning Carpet Sweeper. A good way to clean a carpet sweep er la to remove the brush, and after rubbing off all the hairs and lint, rub It well with kerosene.

NEW IDEA FOR PLACE CARDS Something Always Welcome Is a De sign That Is Different From Run of These. Something new in place cards Is al ways of interest to those who fre quently entertain. A quaint design seen recently was a card about one inch wide and three inches long. At the top was a picture of a pretty girl whose hat. when tilted back, showed the guest's name beneath. Another card showed a small messenger boy carrying a small grip. When the grip was lifted the name was found be neath. A lady with a little fan would be another clever Idea, or pansies with attached leaves would be neat. For a stag dinner the cards could be made with each one to represent the guest’s occupation. Cards for the bank ! cr. tailor, editor, merchant, etc., could [ be made very quaint if the artist is hu j morist enough to portray a little car [ icature work in the embellishment. These little affairs can be made at home with white cards and cartridge i paper, and if one can sketch the pic j tures may be made very attractive. A any silk bag in which are tuck 1 ed a few sprays of artificial flowers, ; such as lilies of the valley, or small j rosebuds, and a small name card, I is a delightful combination of place \ card and favor. Pocket Again. On one or two of the new blouse | models the waist is furnished with a useful little pocket placed on the left | side of the chest, and. thanks to our golfing sisters, the skirt of the ordi | nary walking costume is now often supplied with a similar, though larger receptacle. Necessitated in the case of the golfer by the need of carrying balls, it has been adopted by her less j athletic sisters as a means of earry | ing handkerchiefs, "penny purse,” etc. I By ‘penny purse” is meant that in ! which just the necessary small coins I for fares, etc., are deposited, that con j tabling more important moneys being i much more safely tucked away, eith j er in a hidden pocket or in the usual bag, without which very few wronven J are to be seen nowadays. — Separate Collars. For those who care for separate I collars and pieces of neckwear, some j stocks are being shown of pique and charmeuse. The collar is of the pique, which is trimmed with three pearl buttons on either side of the tie at the front, and at the end of the tie. which is of silk, the under piece of ptgue, Just a little longer than the silk, is found to have the three small buttons afrso. The colors are dark blue, or green, or black, with all white pique, and the buttons of tints match ing the silk. Jet Revived. A suit of the long smart coverall of velours delaine seems as inevitable Just no was a fresh black evening frock. And to remark on some black evening frock seen lately there ap pears to be a revival of Jet, more or less serious this time. Strings of carbochons (about the size of a cent) are noticed on various frocks of trans parent black over white, and on a clinging skirt this trimming seems to make the frock cling even more close ly to the figure.

If not, is it right if she<has a private sitting room? Is the sitting room of a boarding house always at the disposal of the boarders? If there is not a sitting room, what is a girl to do with gentlemen visitors?— Jane S. _ l The living room of a boarding house | should always be at the disposal of: the people in the house, and it. should be attractive, so girls should feel no qualms In asking their friends to call. You would be open to adverse criti cism if you entertained in a room ale. e; if you have a sitting room ar range for a chaperon, then your self respect will be maintained and your men friends will think all the more of you. Entertainment for Young People. Would like to entertain p. crowd of about twenty girls and boys (ago3 from eighteen to twenty) at an eve ning party, but am perplexed as to the entertainment. Ail of our parties seem so very much alike. Can you help me?—Jim. ——— One of the liveliest parties I ever saw was conducted in this fashion. Each of the boys was asked to come wearing something to represent a fa mous man and each of the girls to dress as a famous woman. Programs and pencils were provided to write down "who was who" and prizes were awarded. There was “Paul Revere” with his lantern, "Washington" and his cherry tree, “Betsy Ross” and her flag, “Francis Willard,” wearing a lit tle white ribbon, etc. Try it. Two Questions. Will you please tell me where I can get a good book on etiquette? Would it be correct to have the day of the week best suited for me to receive callers put on my calling cards?—Mrs. A. L. For your first question I must ask you to send me a self-addressed stamped envelope. It will be perfectly correct for you to have an “at home” day engraved upon your visiting card, llut be sure you adhere strictly to the day given and remain at home all prepared for visitors. Acknowledging Wedding Cards. Will you kindly tell me how to ac knowledge a wedding announcement? —Grace. Unless the wedding annpuncement Includes the “at home” address of the happy pair, no notice need be taken. if It does, make a call upon the day mentioned, or, If that is impossible, send your card to arrive upon that date. If the announcement is from a very dear ft^end, a personal notu of love and good wishes would not be amiss. Refreshments for Bridge Tea. I am going to have a friend to visit me for a week and wish to give a bridge tea in t her honor What rp freslimcnts can I serve besides sand wiches, tea and candy? Would an ice be proper? I want to do the correct tiling and will depend so much on your answer.—M. A. I presume you wish to serve re freshments after the game. A fruit salad, served in grape fruit shells, with cheese, crackers, a bit of bar de due in center of each: with it serve coffee. I would pass an ice or frappe during the middle of the afternoon, when one is apt to be thirsty. You could serve individual russe and hot chocolate or oyster cocktails and sar dine sandwiches, with coffee. “G.’s” Questions. When one Is dining out and the host serves more than you really care for, is it a breach of etiquette to leave the plate quite well filled? I am nineteen years old and the eldest girl in the family. How should my visiting cards be engraved?—G. One is never compelled to eat more than is desired. It might be well to caution your host by saying, “That is quite sufficient, thank you.’ Your card should be engraved simply. "Miss Brown.” To your other questions T must say I fear the, reply is too late to be of benefit. I only have just so much space and only a limited number of letters can be answered each week. Use of Place Cards. I have never used place cards, and T think them a great convenience. Do you write the names of the guests and put them at the place you wish them to sit and are they supposed to carry them home with them as souvenirs?— 'Ignorant.” The place cards bear the names of the guests and are put at the places (bey are to occupy. They are usually laid on the napkins and are retained by the guests to be taken home if they wish. Where there are many to be seated or few these cards certainly make it easier for everyone. The Matter of Cards. I am at present visiting here in the city, but live in a small town. Quite a few people have called on me. In re turning their calls do I leave my card, providing I find them at home?—A. L. _ When returning a first call it Is Quito the proper thing to leave your card as a matter of record, as well as to show you know the proper thing to do. In the case of very intimate friends whom one calls upon frequent ly, it is not necessary to leave a card if the person is at home. MADAME MERRI. New Handbags. Handbags are seen in a variety of form. Tho newest is the long double sac bag, passed through a ring to wear over the fingers or sufficiently large to wear as a bracelet. These bags are embroidered in steel or dull goid beads on colored velvet or moire, to match the gown worn. Samples of Most Charming Styles of the New Blouses Here are two original biouse sketches. The styles selected are es sentially of the day after tomorrow, while each represents an average rem nant length of some double width ma terial, such as charmeuse or heavy crepe de Chine. in my text, the illustrated example stands complete in a dark-toned char meuse with an ornamentation supplied by mock loops and self-covered but tons of the aatin.

There is a value in perfumes as a safeguard against contagion, but most women of refinement never overdo this use, but confine it to a delicate fragrance that never offends, as do gross common scents. The dainty woman selects a special perfume and uses this only in all her toilet articles, and it is a fad to select the fragrance of some flower that corresponds with the favorite color. She also has her satchets, perfume, toilet water, pow der and soap to correspond. If any change is made it includes everything on the dressing table, for good taste decrees that only one fa vored scent iB permissible for each in dividual. While a little really fine essence is delightful, a thimbleful of | coarse alcoholic mixtures is disgust ing to any sensitive nostril. Satchets of all sorts are very much used, from large padded linings for shelf, drawer or wardrobe, to smaller and more per sonal satchets that are tucked into the bodice or hidden in the leaf of the satin corsage flower so generally worn. HATS CATCH POPULAR FANCY Che “Drake” and the “Queen Eliza beth” Have Won Much Favor Here and in England. The woman who admires the pic turesque in hats will admire the 'Drake” and Queen Elizabeth hats. The former, with flat, full tam-o’ shanter crown, plumes sweeping to the shoulder, is a predominant note In winter millinery. Velvet quills to match the crown and brim edg*-d with narrow feather fringe are also a pop ular form of trimming. Corbeau blue and Vandyke brown are favored col ors for the “Drake” hat. The unlucky aigrette, despite the ef forts to make it unfashionable, is en joying no respite. Prices have soar ed to a fabulous figure, and it is used to trim many of the smartest "Drake” models. The Queen Elizabeth hat has the sides of the brim curving upward. An exquisite example of this variety was of chestnut-brown velvet, with a white plume sweeping over the side. This was caught with a jeweled ornament. Wal*t Pattern Help. A waist, pattern should be fitted right side out—as it is to be worn. Almost everyone has some variation in the two aides of the figure. One shoulder will be a trifle higher than the other and the hip on the opposite side a trifle lower than its mate, re sulting in a slightly longer walsted underarm seam on that side than on the other. Now, if you fit the waist wrong side out, Ahen you have stitched the seams and put it on right side out the fitting will be exactJy reversed. The high shoulder will he in the side of the waist that was fitted to the low shoulder. New Fashion. A charming fashion recently revived at the Paris opera consists in pinning a couple of flowers upon the bodice of the simply draped gowns in white or black charmeuse. Hut these floral trimmings do not adapt themselves t.0 the magnificent models in embroi dered velvets, brocaded satins and gauzes recently launched upon the stage, nor do they figure on beaded creations. In the latter case the veiled effects In spangled tulle and lace, the draperies and the linings of damask and charmeuse give the required ornamentation to these beau tiful toilets. Waist for a Velvet Suit. Another blouse designed to wear with a brown velvet skirt has in the front and back bib like pieces of the velvet, which also forms the epau lettes. The body of the waist is of a soft, subdued blue chiffon, tucked in clusters. The front piece of the vel vet is cut low to display a yoke em broidered in shades of browns and blues, and the inevitable touch of fur is given by bands of skunk, which mark the shoulder lines and finish the tucked chiffon sleeves, which barely reach over the elbow.

The fad for having divans piled up with cushions of promiscuous hues is fortunately out of vogue, but an occa sional cushion in the more formal drawing room, when it is really beau tiful and artistic, is still a possession to be prized and is indeed a thing of beauty, and makes a most acceptable gift. Such a cushion, instead of being conspicuous and startling, should rath er tone in with the general color scheme of the room, and none are more splendid than those made from harmonious pieces of tapestry which can now be gotten in such exquisite colors and designs. To buy them made up ready* for use. is rather an impossibility for those of moderate means, but they are within the reach of almost every woman who is handy with her needle, and possesses the necessary patience. Odd ends of tapestry, or small remnants can be picked up very cheaply, and to make their beauty more pronounced as though the tapestry Is woven by hand, outline the flowers or conven tional designs or the pattern of which it is composed with a tarnished boui llon braid in gold, which is round rather than flat, and couch this on with gold thread. To make the pillow the new oblong shape, add a strip of velvet to each end of the tapestry, and tills velvet should match or tone in with the pre dominating shade in the tapestry. Where the velvet and tapestry meet may be finished with tarnished gold lace, and the same sort of a cord in gold is used around the cushion when it is complete. The back of the cush ion la made of the plain velvet “BRYDA’’ Dainty Lunch Blouse in a Combina tion of Ivory and Yellow Chlfton and Lace Slip; Fine Lace Collar. Evening Shoes.

Jeweled buck les of great price as well as those of paste are utilized for their adornment mounted on a semi-circle of plaited or plain satin, but two loops of black vel vet. ribbon are seen coming from the latter beneath the buckle. Satin flow erB supply a touch of color. Fashionable Poiae. It is curious bow tho dress of to day reflects the fashionable poise of the moment. The fashionable poise for the feminine figure is that which used to be called the Homan bend— we have had It before, though It was long since discarded for the Grecian bend, which was the antithesis of the first. For the Homan bend we have tho oblique line of trimming in the skirts, and the opening in front over the foot, corresponding with the drag ging downward at the back of the draperies, Oot one Of ihose dandy New Web Wecnrd yet? flee the coupon on page 1. ^ / / PIMPLES CAME HP® On Face.
