SIZE, AOE AND PRICE. $ A gentleman called oii his tallQr re* contly and ordered a suit of clothes, which was to cost him $65. After the “try-on” lie asked the tailor what hb would charge him for a suit of the same material for his boy, who was j only M years of age. The tailor thouglil a moment and then replied: “Well, if your hoy is only 14. I'll make ilim u suit like yours for $40.” The next day the father and son ap peared; the ■•'boy'* was only 14 years old, but he weighed L’00 pounds and was six feet tall. It took twice the amount of- material to make the “hoy’s” suit that It did the father's. The tailor, of course, expostulated. This boy was a man in size, but the parent insisted that he was a boy nev er! helosfs, and lie did ’ not propose* to jay the same price for a "boy's suit” as he did for his own. This Is the kipd of trouble experi enced in all linens of misses' and chil dren's 'millinery goods, says the Mil linery Trade Review. A woman wjjl pay $40 for a hat for herself, but when it comes to buying a hat for her daughter she haggles and quibbles over the price. .She expects the best, the samb 3tyle and material as in her own hat, but refuses to pay the same price because it is a child's hat. r Her .Suspicion. *He (soulfully)—There are a thousand stars tonight looking down upon you. She—Is my hat on straight?—Har pet's Bazar. • I SUMMER BLOUSES. j The chief characteristic of the sum mer blouses 1b the curious introduction of embroidery, resembling that made and worn by the Russian peasant. This is said to have originated in the frocks first seen in "The Chocolate Soldier." There are displayed fine white lawn blouses and frocks trimmed with heavy shoulder yokes of bright-colored cross-stitch embroidery, while girdles and waistbands, sleeves and deep bands that cut the bodice in half are to be seen of the same strong colored embroidery. Other blouses are of crepe de chine and Japanese crepe of various colors, with Eastern embroidery, made on se verely plain lines, with short elbow sleeves and what appears to be a low neck, the bare and untidy effect of the latter being obviated by a high invisi bly-boned collar-band of pink or w'hlte tulle. FOR THEATRE WEAR. In the theatres nowadays, when the big hats come off, according to rule, many a modish head is covered with a tiny mob-cap of the softest, finest lace, often of gold lace. A small smart bow of gold ribbon is its only trimming. Indeed, so extremely fashionable have caps become that some new hats are made with frills of lace under the brim, so that the wearer may appear to have a cap on underneath.

The negligee that takes pretty and graceful lines is always welcome. This one possesses that advantage at the same time that It Is absolutely simple. The sleeves are extended to the neck edge in raglan. style and there is a seam at the centre back which allows a slightly bi^s effect that produces the pretty lines qnd folds. Flowered crepe with bands of ribbon is the combina tion illustrated, but the kimono will be found desirable for materials of num berless sorts. It can be made, as illus trated or cut off to sacque length, and it will bo found pretty for kimono silks, for lawns, batistes and the like, and also for the cashmere and albatross that are of such desirable weight for many occasions. Pnle pink albatross lined with white India silk makes a charming effect. The crepe illustrated is both practical and attractive. Ki mono silk edged with bands of plain color is picturesque and of the least possible weight and warmth. Lawns are pretty with bands of contrasting color, and the kimono suits each and all of these materials equally well. For the medium size will be required "Vi yards of material 27 inches wide, 6Vi yards 36 or 4 yards 44 inches wide, with 1 yard 27 inches wide for bands 2 Inches In width.

THE woman who wishes to be interesting must endeavor, first, lo throw upon others the burden of the conversation and to he really eager to hear what others have to say, says a writer in a Philadelphia paper. No amount of feigned enthusiasm can fool the, person with whom we converse. If we are bored wc are bound to show it in some way. 1 know two women, both of whom have attraction and charm. When peo ple meet them they are drawn to them equally, hut Inevitably, the younger woman loses her grip. Men rave over her at first, but in a. short time grow cold. The older woman, on the other hand, keeps heh friends as long as she will have them. > "What is your secret?" she was asked. "It is because I love to hear what other people art doing," she stated. ”1 love animals and nature—I love to hear about polities, social settlements and church whrk. I love books and art and music, hut 1 do not think that th'Si last are the only worth while things.' I have seen that little woman surrounded by a circle of children who lis tened with bated breath to her charming tales. Yet It was not always they who listened, for she drew- them out with tactful'questions, and they told their eager stories. 1 have semi her surrounded by a group of hoys and girls, all worshipping at her shrine. When she was with this group, she had little to say, they wrre so keen on telling their own experiences, so she heard of football, of fraterni ties and sororities, of spreads and of escapades without, number. Old men tolrl her of their fishing and hunting; statesmen poared ^nto her ear the seerets of legislative bodies, old women talked of theirifnne.y work, and young women of their babies. Tou will say that she made a slave of herself, that she had no ehanca to show what das In her. As a matter of fact, she was gathering mate rial. When the time came for her to talk, she knew- humanity. The stories told to her by the college hoys and glrla, at some later day, amazed the states men. The funny saylngrf of the eager little fink came In for after-dinner recital. The good conversationalist picks up Information everywhere. A dried-up old maid tells you of cross-country riding, of foxes and of hunters, of Eng lish customs, of pink coats and of meets. She speaks In a monotone, and you have to fore? yourself to listen, but some day you may he invited to dine at a eouptry club, where the knowledge gleaned from that uninteresting source may help you lo shine, ns you chat with the gentleman next lo you, whose soul is absorbed in sport. We become vivid only as we give ourselves ardently to the things which please those pbout us. Who are tile dul 1 and commonplace? Those whose souls are hounded^- by their own little oxperle nces.

Rocket is excellen for bordering the^ river from, and should be massed llways, rather than planted in clumps alone. It is extremely hardy and an be moved at any time of year, even when in full bloom, as it will, if catered, continue to blossom as well as ever. For a neat border to the flower garden or the flower bed, there is noth n3 prettier than summer flowering oxalis. When the bulbs are planted three nehes apart they present an unbroken row of beautiful foliage and dainty ilossoms. As they begin to bloom almost before the leaves appear and very tutckly after planting, they furnish an attractive border the whole season. The bulbs, which are not much larger than peas, can be planted any time In May, and will be in bloom in early June. They are very charming when grown in pots and make an attractive mass of foliage and gay flowers. *They can be started in pots now, and will commerce to bloom as soon as Ihey. appear above ground. There is no flowef easier grown than this one, as It is sure to succeed in all soils and situations.

It is one of our best hardy annuals and self sows its seed. It blooms almost as soon as the plants are out of the ground and continues until October. If the smaller plants are taken up in the fall and potted they will bloom all Winter in a sunny window. The calendula does not grow more than a foot in height, and the flowers are flat disks, which come single, double and semi double, in shades of yellow, which range from deep sulphur to a pale ivory tint. rimsT^S/jofi&ERS Poplins In fine plain color and corded, some of them remnants, are offered at reasonable prices at tbe David Straus store.

There Is not a better way to begin to plan one's garden than to do it on pa per. Make a scale drawing of your premises—that is. a diagram of the I shape of the lot, letting each inch repre sent so many linear feet, in accordance with tlie actual dimensions of the plot. Next, draw in the roadways, if there are any, the paths, and the walks, marking the location of shrubbery1 and trees, says Harper's Bazar. With this sketch before you. proceed to lay out the ground plan of your garden-to-be. Remember that the flower garden should have a position where plenty of sun will reach it both morning and afternoon; thus seek a southern expo sure, If possible. While a southeastern slope is an ideal location for a vegetable garden, vegetables will thrive in many places where flowers would not do so well. The soil will, to a great extent, dictate the garden's location with many, although the summer and fall month* can be given over to developing and en riching the soil by fertilizers, where it Is less rich than it may he in some less suitably located position.
