TKNDENCY FOR LESS rCKNTTCRK On those wild escapades eo often occurring In the troubled life of Mary Stuart, no matter how hurried the flight her householod furniture, such as it was, usually accompanied her. True, there was not a great deal of I It, but probably as much as the aver I age English family of her period I possessed. The chief possession was a bed, from which she was seldom I parted. Doubtless the greater part I of her other possessions consisted of I rugs and hangings. That nomadic creature, the Arab, I silently folds his tent and as silently t steals awaya, but, many of the feudal I households were nearly as capable of this as the Arab, says the New York i Herald. What a relief It would be when I contemplating moving to have prac I tically nothing to move but a bed i or so, a table and for the rest noth ing but tapestries, ruga and hangings easily folded! Of this the usual fur niture of the feudal lords consisted. Not until after the end of the Mid , die Ages did the use of the multipll- city of articles of furniture as are ! known now spring into use. Whether 1 the weight of the amount of furniture ' since considered necessary for every 1 family to acquire has turned Ameri ' cans into a sedentary people or '"''whether they acquire furniture be -aune they are of sedentary habits, is mo matter for serious reflection. Wore the not for the difficulty of transfer- ring household possessions it is cer tain that many fairly stationary as it is, would shortly acquire the roving dispositions now only possible when $ liepo?sessed with an abundance or else Uhls fjenniless tramp. In these two one-tVes a'one can the present day in Khar'""1131 hope to travel in comfort. jgg, As it is, there is again a decided ( tendency toward less furniture, and if this continues freedom may once more be hoped for. Once accustomed F ' to doing without chairs to sit upon ! more than half the problem would ; be solved. This may seem as if Im posing a hardship upon humanity, but ; until a very late date humanity seems to have managed to get on very well without this symbol of effete clvili zation, for although it has figured as a well known piece of furniture for a very long time, it was by no means ; an ordinary article. Its use was chief ' ly confined to state occasions, or fo honored individuals, and was regard ed much in the light of a throne. Vviotrung Bieamiy becomes more simple, not less elegant perhaps, but certainly less complicated. One trunk ' will now carry as many changes of costumes as once required three, and if it is possible to simplify house fur 1 niture in the same manner who : knows what may result in changes of mode of life. A few priceless tapestries, a pile of Chinese ruge, some gorgeous Tur kish cushions would be gladly acquir i ed in exchange by the possessor of a , quantity of dueklegged chairs, if it ; were only customary. If it were only customary, however, as It is not, humanity will continue . to burden itself with the accumula tion of several centuries of fashions' in furniture. The reception room of Ixuls. XIV, the drawing in early Vic torian (revived) and so on with each room help to bind the present to the past. ATURDA1 marks the opening of our 1'ebruary Clearance Sale of Housefurnishings!

" Hosiery is ever so much more elab- orate and startling than it lias been i for many seasons. The Ions skirts 1 are probably responsible for this friv- , olousneu, for somehow it seems less (Shocking to wear striped and other- j wise gay hosiery when the wearer ; fi.slfj that thev aren't too Obvious. A' glimpse of a dainty ankle gayly clad ; is chic, but a display or more man that is rather .poor taste. The open work clock is always good style, and some of the newer ones are made elaborate with drop stitching an'i gay colors. A pretty pair of heavy ifclack eilk has beige colored clockings dono elaborately in groups of silk dots. But the clocked stockings are puritanical in comparison with the sheerest af fairs Inset with lace. When worn with dull kid pumps with out steel buckles, the effect of these is very smart. When afTectinp such elaborate shoes and hosiery care should be taken to wear a simple frock or an overdressed look will result. Some of the newest stockings are two toned in almost an imperceptible way, giving the. effect of stripes. This effect is carried out in Mack by drop stiches. A stunning pair that would look rartipularty smart with Iblacfc satin oxfords has half inch stripes, each alternate stripe being made of the drop stitching. For the girl who loves the unusual a pair of stockings which is decorated with the most life- like looking lady bug embroicered in brilliant colors will have instant ap peal . Xeedless to say the effect would be rather more than startling when the wearer crossed her knee. Embroidered stockings are a'o very good, although the designs are some what more elaborate than formerly and often times are varied with an open work design. A lovely pair has a koral design done in solid embroid ery and a very attractive butterfly done in the open work. Stockings to match silver slippera are ordinarily difficult to obtais. but one local shop has a splendid selec tion of the shad of blue gray which harmonizes wonderfully with silver. One very pretty pair is of extremely sheer slrk and a delicate embroidered vine design makes them mast ornate. Pale flesh, blue an-uf mauve are intro duced in the embroidery"" of some of these, making them particularly suit able for wear with the paler colored . evening gowns. I Silk and wool stockings . are smart j for wear with the low heeled oxford, j These are shown in various suit ; shades. A lovely dark brown pair that match perfectly the cordovan shoe has tiny flecks of white, giving! mem. a silken appearance., au wool socks are also worn over a light weight stocking for skating and other sports. The tops of these are turned down and usually show bright colors. A pretty dark blue pair shows stripes ui. 1 use ana1 gra. CAMOUFLAGE CLOTHES. After war there comes a reaction in women's dress. Women going out of uniforms, going out of overall, and going out of clothes suitable only to war times, want gay and pretty things as never before. Tre shops have learned the psychology of war on clothes. They are ready with a sea of beautiful thing! at beautiful prices. "Women are apt to plunge in and lose their heads, or their bank accounts, which is worse. Then prices come down only to mpek and ridi cule the sacrifice of vanity. WTar has taught us economy. Econ omy in clothes lies not in shabby gar ments but in garments suitable to the occasion. Beware of the Solomon-in-all-his-glory clothes. They last but a day. Beware of shifting styles which, like rolling stones, don't stay long enough to even gather moths. He member economy lies in good sub stantial styles. Good styles are last ing even though they may not be the very latest note from Paris. The business woman on a limited income will do well- to profit by the idea of the uniform such as furnish ed workers of the Y. W. C. A., and j other organizations of war and re- j construction work, fcjft busines j woman en a limited icome must i make her business clothes do the j work of the three or four changes : has no time to go home and change if she is invited out to tea. Neatness of attire and professional aid of busi ness must make her excuses for the lack of fuss and frills, just as it does in the case of the business man. The business woman would do wail to provide herself with a set of cam- ouflage clothes. There 1b a camou- i flage dress which has the foundation j of black satin, built on the popular ; slip over stylo of the day. It may 1 have extra slip over tunics of serge) or velvet or satin. j The business woman would alEO I do well to follow the Y. W. C. A. in j the adoption of a coat for all oc- ' casions. It is not limited to women 1 in uniform. It is of soft finish, mole skin cloth in gray or tan, wind proof, waterproof and warm, suitable for storm or dress occasions. It is truly a camouflage garment for the business woman who must appear to the best j advantage rain or shine no matter how unawares the weather takes her. 1 A couple of pairs of gaiters is an- j other good camouflage for the busi ness woman. "With the high cost of shoes few business women are even fortunate enough to afford two pair at one time. It is truly wonderful what can be done with re-hee!ed, re soled shoes, some blacking and a pair of gaiters while the cow is still Jumping her hide 7 the moon. 8PKAK AT MASS MKOTIVG.
