The summer time is the season when the Woman's Club should do its be'st n-ork, as at this time of year a clean up crusade should be ener eoticallv waged in order that th" standard of healthfulness may b; up held and maintained. We expect great things from the Woman's Club of Lakeleand, and will be glad to hear that its members have taken up deefi nite plass for civic improvement. ly in Favor. Every one requires at least one prac tical waist in a medium-dark color which will always be ready to put on. A pivry one may be made of white dotted blue foulard silk with a cluster of three tucks on each side of the center front and a lingerie embroid ered frill at one side of the waist, with narrower ones to correspond on collar and cuffs. A blouse of fine gray batiste pret tily embroidered in a neat design of the same color has a double ruffle down the front, tapering to the waist line, with edge neatly embroidered. A dainty tailored waist which is al ways correct lo wear with the severe ly plain tailored suit Is made of cot ton corduroy, with the seams Joined with crocheted beading and a band down the front and forming cuffs and collar made of colored embroidery in combination of red and blue. A girlish type of waist Is made to open in the back with wide plaits across the front. These plaits are edged with tatting, which is also In serted in the jabot, collar and sleeves. A washable blouse, buttoned in the back and made in blue-striped white lawn, is entirely run with fine pinch tucks, with a shallow square yoke, stock and cuffs made of rows of cro cheted lace. A white-end-mauve striped voile shirt waist is made with mannish severity, relieved by a fluffy side frill and inset of fllet lace on collar and cuffs. A wide band of plain-colored material trims the box plait at the center front. The waists of light linen, madras or any of the other wash materials do not lose their popularity even with the great vogue of the chiffon and net waists, for while the latter are hand some for formal and dressy occasions, many women prefer wash waists for everyday wear. Frequent laundering gives them a certain crispness and cleanness which is especially pleasing to tho dainty woman. The one point always to be considered in purchasing is that tho material launders well, since there is nothing pretty or dainty about a faded shirt waist. Not at All Hard to Decorate, and Makes a Most Welcome Gift at Any Time Two Designs That May be Copied. One of the daintiest fashions intro duced this season was the hand-painted slipiMTs for evening wear. Can you imagine v. more attru.tive gift for the graduate or bride than a pair of these? The slippers are satin, white or any delicate tint, and the design may be of any favorite flower. With filmy gowns of chiffon, lace or net. these lovely slippers add just the correct touch to produce a perfect cos tume. Any woman with the slightest artist ic ability can paint these slippers and find It a delightful pastime. Two cleverly nrranged designs are given here, which you may transfer to the slipper in this manner: Over the slipper place a small piece of carbon paper and on top of this the design. Carefully trace each flower with, a sharply pointed pencil. You I -I I. I -I- EVENING DRESS will find an exact duplicate of the de sign on the slipper. Use watercolors to tint the flowers. Wild roses are used for one design. These are always effective on account of their delicate shading. The color ing should range from the faintest pink to a deep rose. A daisy design is especially lovely. Daisies, in their simple beauty, make an appropriate decoration for the white (nipper of the bride or tho "sweet girl graduate." Violets in an effective arrangement are good. Shades and tints of violet shouhl be used to color these lovely blossoms. A design of forget-me-nots Is exceed ingly pretty. They should bo tinted V palest blue, wiih yelow centers. Tho bow knot n. .;y he any color desired; howewr, pale pink with I lie blue al- .ays nukes it effective combination, i If you desire to purchase the hand printed Kiippi you will find them rather expensive. When decorated at homo they o:M comparatively little. They are the most acceptable of i gifts, deiigiili:;g any one fortunato enough to receive them. A very charming dress this In ap ricot satin. The skirt Is trimmed at left side of front with frills of nlnon of tbe same color of graduated widths; the top Is finished with a small circlet of forget-me-nots; tte sides of the bodice are cut In points that lie over a full vest of nlnon. The fichu Is of nlnon edged with a pleated frilling, the ends In front are crossed under a gold tinsel rose. Materials required for the dress: 4 yards satin 42 Inches wide, I yards nlnon 40 Inches wide. New Veil Case. To keep veils fresh and unwrin kled, a new case has been designed. It la made of silk and wadded to pro vide a soft surface for tbe perishable mesh. A round wooden stick the size of a broom handle, and about 24 Inches In length. Is overlaid with cot ton wadding and covered with cbina silk. Tbe ends are neatly drawn Into a disk of the wadded silk. Dozens of veils can be wrapped around this soft form and kept In perfect condition, says the New York Herald. While the silk and wadding are being Joined to gether. a little sachet powder may be applied to tbe Inside. i Coat Blouses Now. S Thre are special coat blouses now, simple affairs with all the trimming massed on that portion of the blouse which shows In the opening of the coat front The rest of the blouse Is as plain a a man's shirt, but Is of ex quisitely fine material, with simple, eet-ln sleeves and buttons and button holes at the back. PRESENT AND COMING STYLES Little That Is Really New, Though the Flounce Has Been Estab lished In High Favor. The flounce Is at last established In high favor. And many of the new taf feta frocks with fetching little Jacket wraps to match have as many as three or four flounces reaching to the knee. Of course the flounced skirt is short, revealing plainly tbe pretty buttoned boots which are now so fashionable. It Is also narrow, the measurements of the scant flounce being kept within 2H yards width, decreed by Mme. Mode. In a season when taffeta as a dress material Is lifted to tbe pinnacle of favor It seems odd that ribbed rib bons should have such a vogue In mil linery; but all the ribbon trimmings on spring hats seem to be In grosgrala or ottoman weaves. These ribbons are plaited Into all manner of smart bows, fans, cockades and cabocbons. When big, soft bows are used, silk by tbe yard In taffeta weave seems tbe favorite material. Motor coats are simple and smart In design. Even the Inexpensive models have good lines, with broad, roomy shoulders and a narrow effect at the foot These coats are made of English and Scotch tweeds and the good-looking American wool mixtures that re peat the tweed effects at moderate cost. Huge buttons and eccentrically Bhaped cuffs, revers and pockets give them a knowing and modern look. Wisp of Lace and Chiffon. The evening corsage grows smaller and smaller and beautifully less. Very dishabille, as our Parisian friends more elegantly express it, is tbe cor sage composed of a wisp of lace and chiffon, upheld over the shoulder by a thread of brilliants or ttads. 1 Our windows are showing and our announcements are herald ing the newest, nobbiest Spring Clothes lor you and your daugh ter.
