PREVAILING MODE THE Possible, However, to Be in Style at Comparatively Little Expense : If One Is Clever with the Needle. The prevailing fabrics and modes for fancy blouses and frocks, for aftef noon and evening wear require such marvelous hemstltchery that the wom an of average purse cannof afford to employ an up-to-date dressmaker for their manufacture. But If she knows how to handle that first aid to the home sewer, a reliable , 1 T.r--3fcMuyí;;iui v u 1 rvjtt&isv r pattern, she can enhance the simplest .' design by such exquisite stitchery as to rivcl the work of an; expert, foreign "or ' domestic. The modern sartorial 'r'trlumnh ia a matter of Infinita nalna travágance In fabric. ;An Inexpensive batiste or chiffon or silk net, correctly made, is more desir able than a stately brocade or satin which will stand alone. In fact, the very filmy, clinging fabric which seems practically without body, over laid with finé stitchery In which not a line of machine work is shown, i the correct thing for present day needs. There is much talk about simple ef fects In 1908 frocks, but the simplicity Is hard to find.' To be sure, the lines themselves are simple enough. Skirts to all Intents are plain, often absolutely devoid of trimming, but the blouses and wraps make up for the se verity of the skirts. Neither Is there any simplicity to be noted in the trim mings used, which are trimmings upon trimmings, embroidery upon lace, or even lace upon lace. One of the needle work fads which gives most pleasing effects is that of touching up laces with a bit of deli cately tinted hand embroidery. An In expensive Imitation cluny or filet lace can be made charming by embroider ing over part of the pattern In color or doing a stamped pattern upon the lace. t ' : . - . Hours can be spent In simply hand running tucks, smocking or rose-shlr-rlng fina nets, chiffon, marquisette and similar soft materials for house frocks. Nothing so certainly stamps a frock as cheap like machine stitchery on a soft, chlnglng fabric. ' Another feature of up-to-date sewing is the application of lace medallions, or the combination of embroidered medallions with lace Insertions. Done by machine this always has a factory look, even If made at home. Almost invariably the stitchery will draw and prevent the perfect adjust ments, .of skirt or bertha or, ( sleeve. . JTbs blouse displayed In our illustra tion suggests an excellent iise of short lengths in lace or embroidery. In the model a very soft messallne in silvery-gray was used, the tucks below the shaped yoke being run by hand. The yoke was made from strips ol novelty lace, in cluny design, with the flowers worked over in stiver grays, blues and green, joined by German val insertion. It will be noted that the insertion employed in the yoke runs down the upper portions of the sleeves, a very good effect. - THREE IDEAS OF VALUE. Pointers Picked Up by the Exercise of Observation. There is something to be learned in every house we enter, -some valuable bit of information to be gleaned from nearly everybody we meet. At a musi cal one day I was served with ice cream which was entirely new to me, and later I learned that it was the sauce which gave the touch of orig inality, as the cream was the old standby, vanilla. Home-made pre serves, blueberries, were poured over the cream, giving an air of unfamiliar. ty to the stuff and imparting a de licious flavor. I have used the hint to good advantage, substituting rasp berries, strawberries, pineapple, iblack berries and peaches preserved and fresh for the blueberries, and on one occasion using maple sirup with chopped nuj: meats. At another house I was introduced to a milk sherbet, called "One, two, three" sherbet by the hostess because It was easier to remember by numerals. One quart of milk, two cups of sugar and the juice of three lemons were poured into the freezer and came out a delicious dessert, despite the tendency to ourdle. The freezing smoothed the mixture. The best stew I ever ate was called "Dutch," and baked in a bean pot. It was made of two pounds of chuck .gtsak, cut in iqunres, one can of pea, one-fourth cupful of noft bread crumbs, pnfyhfllf can of tomatoes, one carrot, one onion, 'four cloves, one-fourth cup ful pearl tapioca, salt and pepper to taste. This mixture was covered with cold water and baked four or five hours In the oven, closely covered all the time. It Is a whole meal In itself, and quite good enough for a company dish. Exchange. ...
