For Instance, one gown of white taffeta waa ex tremely simple of line and tralnless.

For the afternoon frocka there la a wide range of choice. Delightful frocks for formal wear are made up In some -one of the soft crepes or chiffon, taf feta or satin stuffs, or one of the sheer -veilings or chiffon mnterlala. The bride's dinner gown may be either of sheer stuff or one of the -crepes or satins. If the afternoon frock Is of tbe heavier material the sheer stuff will prohably be chosen (or tbe dinner gown. The evening giwn may be elab orate or simple. There are many lovely materials for such frocks, and the coloring and line are the chief considera tions. White la really the most sensible thing for the girl of one regulation eve ning frock, though delicate tints are tempting. White crepe, or chif fon over a silver foundation, with perhaps some light trimming to relieve It. will make a becoming frock, which may be worn more times without seeming tiresome than any colored frock could be. Tbe bridesmaids' frocka are quaint, picturesque and artlstlo and In the sketches are shown two of the pretti est that have been designed this season. Jill iff Directions for Its Construction, and the Proper Way In Which It Should Be Worn, One of the vary new high girdles la pretty and easy to make besldea, aaya the Philadelphia North American. The girdle can be in two colors, as those ultra-smart onea are, or of one color only, If you would ba more conserva tive. The width of tba girdle, too, depends upon your own taste. It la to be a crushed girdle, and we will presume that It Is to be made of a dull silk, mesaaltnea and such shiny surfaces being rather "back numbers' Just at present Cut two bias strips of silk, each sufficiently long to go entirely about the waist both of on color, or each a contrasting color to the other. Beam tbe two pieces of silk together, making one long atrip, and hem down tile raw edges. It wide rib bon la used, there will, of course, be no necessity for turning In the selv age edges. Then gather In each nar row end with a drawing thread, and Join these enda to braid frogs to which are attached loops. TLcl. put two large buttons, braided or silk-covered, In ihe exact center of the girdle, on under tbe other, about two Inches apart The girdle la now ready to wear. Place the center of the girdle at the center front of the waist wrap both ends about tbe waist, crossing them in the back, and bring the enda to the front, there to fasten the loops to the two buttons. A more graceful, kind of girdle you wouldn't want Tba girdle may also be made In velvet and fancy or velvet-covered buttons used. Either braid or frogs and loops mad from tbe velvet may ba used.

BOOTS MUST BE BUTTONED Taffeta and Shadow Lace. MARY DEAN. Golden Touch on Black Frock. To brighten and smarten a black frock In satin or crepe de cblne, there la nothing equal to golden colored ma terial on the collar, the cuffs and the sash And. Depending entirely upon the woman and the occasion for which she needs the frock, these golden touches must be applied. Tba collar, the cuffs and the sash end may be wholly of gold lace veiling cloth of gold; the satin or crepe may bave gold motif and medallion encrustations, applique; or there may ba merely banda In gold ribbon arabesques In gold braiding, or the slenderest of pipings In gold cloth. Laces Altogether Out of Fashion Cloth Tops and Curved Heela Are Other Features. . Every requirement of good form la answered in a now boot Its buttoned I top is of fine twilled cloth and Its vamp of putent leather has the trim, slender look which suggests a patri cian foot within. Hut not all the feet that trip about In smart boots are ns slender and patrician as they seem, for shoecraft Is artful and the cleverly draped gown, often producea grace ful Hues by disguising defects of na ture. At any rate, the fashionable boot la slender and long-lined and It Is buttoned. No laced boot would daro show Itself In a drawing room, or on a dancing floor, or even on Fifth avenue at promenade hour. Another amart feature about the season'a boot is Its curved heel. This Is not a Louis XV beel, for It does really support the foot and the weight of the body; but Ita graceful curve gives It a French effect There rather frivolous boot heela have come In with the dancing erase, for every article of attire these daya must ba donned with a possible dance during the day or evening In mind. While Voile Touched With Blue. Tba colorless print can give no Idea of tbe cool blue and whlteneaa of thla dainty aummer frock. Skirt and two tunica are of white Indestructible voile, the bodice and puffed upper tunic be ing of white voile embroidered with little blue flowers. The pipings, collar and sash are of blue pusay willow taffeta, the sash fastening under a buckle of the silk. Baths for Health and Beauty. A course of electric batha la a moat admirable tonic to the whole aystem, but where thla la Impossible, on the score of expense, have a warm bath every night. A little liquid ammonia may be added to It; a brisk bath for a long soak In hot water doea far more barm than good followed by a sponge-off with equal quantltlee of toilet vinegar or eau de cologne and water, and a brisk toweling till the hwhole body Is aglow. Then get Into bed at once. In the morning bave a "loofah" massage, rubbing the whole body well with a dry loofah till you tingle from bead to foot, followed by several minutes' deep breathing and simple Swedish exercises. In determining the alxe of a alio the first thing to be considered Is the diameter, and this depends on tbe number of cattle to be fed. When the diameter of a alio Is too great tbe silage is not fed off rapidly enough to keep It from spoiling. Tbla la par ticularly true wben silage la fed In aummer. Care should therefore be taken that the diameter of the silo be not too great tor tbe number of cows to be fed from It aaya the de partment of agriculture. From thirty to forty pounds of silage per cow per day should be pro vided for average dairy cowa during tbe time when no other green food la available. The amount varies accord ing to the quantity and quality of dry forage used. After the diameter of the alio haa been decided upon tbe next consideration la the number of tons of silage that will be needed, and this depends on the length of the sllage-feedlng season. A convenient height for a silo above the foundation is twice Ita diameter; but aomotlmes It Is necessary for a ello of amall di ameter to be higher than this. In such a case It should be well braced. The silo should, If possible, be located so as to open Into the feed room. It sucb an arrangement la Impracticable, It should bo located near the barn at some other point and connected with the barn or with the toed room by covered passageway. The Foundstlon. To lay out the foundation, drive a stake In the ground at the center ot the proposed silo. Saw off this stake at the height desired for the founda tion wall, which should be at least one foot above the ground on the high side. If the ground Is sloping. The thickness of the wall ahould vary from ten to eighteen Inches, de pending upon the else of tba silo, the material of the foundation, and the ground on which It Is located. The Inside of the foundation wall ahould be at least six Inches nearer to the center of the alio than the Inside ot the staves. Materials and Construction. The material of the foundation may be of atone, brick or concrete. Con crete la preferable under most condi tions. Where atone or brick Is to be used the earth In tbe bottom of the alio, except where the center stake stands, may be dug out before tba wall la built, thus giving additional silage apace and allowing greater con venience In building tba wall. Tba earth ahould not be dug out deeper than four inchea above the bottom of the walL With concrete foundation thla excavation must not be made un til the wall la finished and tba posl tlon of the staves marked on tba top of tba wall. Stone. Stone may ba conveniently need wben tbe foundation will not extend more than one or two feet above the surface of tba ground. It ahould ba laid In cement mortar In auch a man ner that the Inner surface will be smooth and the top leveL Brick. Where bard-burned brick can ba se cured cheaply, aa ia often the case near brickyards, they can frequently be us d to advantage for a foundation. They should be laid In cement mortar, with the Inner surface of the wall smooth and the top level. If the wall extends more than one foot above the surface, It should be reinforced by lay ing a No. wire, or Ita equivalent on every second course of brick above tbe surface of tbe ground. Concrete. For a concrete foundation, a ditch must be dug before any of the earth In the center la removed. Tbe earth between the two lines that mark the Inside and outside of the foundation should be taken out until firm ground below frost line is reached, care being taken to cut the elder of the ditch down straight and to leave tba bot tom level. Preparing the Concrete. For mixing the concrete, a bog about four feet wide, eight feot long and one foot deep may be used, or a simple floor or platform six by ten feet will suffice. To measure the ma terials, an empty banal (preferably a cement barrel) with both ends knocked out will ba most convenient Coquettish Hat One of tba most fetching hats worn by a mannequin at a recent faahion promenade in a New York ahop waa a tiny aallor trimmed with ribbon In dull blue color. Under the tllted-up brim at tba left aide waa a rosette of old-rose ribbon, and from thla rosette depended a single old rose ribbon streamer, which trailed over tbe shout dor, reaching below the knea. Tba effect waa extremely coquettish. Roup Remedies. Roup Is a most contagious dlseaaa and any treatment should be given at the earliest appearance of the disease. It does not pay to treat fowls serious ly sick. Kill them and burn tbe car casses.

Oil-meal, wheat middlings and tankage all have their place In economical feeding, and their aue must be regulated by the kinds ot farm feeds at hand,, and their market value. Unprofitable Cows. Cowa are not always to blame for being unprofitable. We should nevet sell a cow to a butcher unless wa can look ber squarely In tbe eya and say, "Well, old girl, I've done my part to make you profitable." Cleaning Dairy Utenalls. The dairy utensils must bo care fully washed and thoroughly scalded It Is the only way to keep them clean and If thay are not clean they cannot produce a good quality of milk. Com for Feeding. It la believed by many that corn which will mature a good crop of ears la better from a feeding standpoint than varieties which produce largo hey can be grown. All localities can amounts of forage and few ears. STOP THAT BACKACHE There's oothing more discouraging than a conetaot backache. You are lame when you awake.
