bits of undeiweai for gifts, and

The first essential is that the
handkerchiefs must be tine ones.
Those chosen should have a
hem not over a quarter of an
inch in depth and inside the
he m should be a delicate traving
of embroidery. The handker
chiefs, of course, form the body
of the corset cover and are put
together with the lace insertion,
which is about an inch or a
trifle more in width. The hand
kerchiefs are cut diagonally in
two, from one point to the oth
er. The raw edges are hemmed
with a tiny hem and two halves
are used for the fronts of the
waist while the others are
made into the back.
Those forming the fronts are
made with the point of the
waist line that the fullness may
be across the top. while in the
the back the reverse is done

The Democrat carries identic
cally the same paper and
script type that Mermod L
Jaccard of St. Louis does. It
does the same class of wedding

they do, and it does not charge
fancy St. Louis prices. That
being the case, if you have
any interest in your home

your work done at home, for
it will be done just as secretly
