HOUSE DRESS ACCOMPANIED
TIE APRON IN (Special to the Yuma Daily Examiner) NEW YORK, Sept. 22 Our modern housewife, be she bride or matron, does not prepare breakfast in a be ribboned and be-ruffled morning robe, or dinner in a passe afternoon frock. Nay, nay! She delights in her trim morning dress, with open throat, short skirt, and sleeves, developed in some fresh material which may be tubbed eVery Monday morning. Her hair is drawn back daintily and becomingly, and often confined under a cap of the same material as the house dress, to protect the hair from dust or cooking odors. The Material of tiie House Dress Gingham, chambray and percale are the staple fabrics for these -dresses, but someone who desired to simplify matters still further, decided that the plain white soiled no quicker than the starched gingham or chambray; that soft, white cotton crepe, which washes so easily, requires no ironing, does not wrinkle, and is fresher looking, was more practical, for these dresses than the old-time fabrics which re quire" starch and careful laundering. Buttons and Pockets Trim House Dresses Of course, many an old-time house Tvife laughed at the idea and consid ered the very thought of housework in white ridiculous, but many have taken it up and find cotton crepe, whether in pure white or patterned Hi 111 fell BUNGALOW STYLE in color, a most satisfactory and, prac tical material for the work dress. Popularity of the Smock The gardening fad, which took a strong hold upon the fancy of the city dweller and the suburbanite, this sum- wner, was responsible for the introduc tion of the smock. It has become decidedly "popular with housekeepers and promises to find a Dermanent I place in the wardrobe. These smocks are fashioned of dark blue linen, cham bray, duck, and sfmilar materials, of ten trimmed with smocking in con trasting thread. They are especially practical to slip on over an auernoo frock when there is some slight task to be performed which might possi bly result in a spot or stain on the gown. The 'woman who delights is regilding a picture frame, or bright ening up a piece of furniture, will also find them convenient, as they are generally made up in a somewhat heavier material than the regulation apron, and, therefore, offer more pro tection. Bungalow or All-Enveloping Aprons These large all-enveloping aprons play no small part in the houskeeper's scheme of things. Crepe is also being used considerably for these aprons, but gingham still holds first place; this is a garment that requires a bit of crispness to make it look fresh. Percale, striped or patterned in some conventionalized design, is attractive, too, and there are a number of other wash fabrics, thin, duck, for instance, that .are used. Pockets and Trimmings Large, roomy pockets are features of both dresses and aprons. They come in veyr harndy for carrying a dust cloth, a short handled duster, or whisk broom, a pair of shears, or some other article to be used at various times during the morning; besides be ing useful, they break the severity of the dress and render it more becom ing. Buttons are used to trim these dresses;- too; but they must be a washable button bone or crocheted. Pearl buttons, which are not remov able, are apt to break when the gar ment is laundered. The large pearl or bone buttons, however, the shanks of which may be slipped through button holed eyelets, secured with a bar, and removed when the frock goes to the tub, the height of the practical. The skirt, which unbuttons from belt to hem andmay be laid out flat on the ironing- board, is another happy no tion. Another way to brighten the house dress without making ,it fussy is to pipe the neck edge, armholes, cuffs, down the front and around the several pockets, with a contrasting bias tape. This comes in linen or cotton, in many attractive colorings; also in stripes and checks, and makes most effec tive colorings; also in stripes and checks, and makes most effective trimming for both dresses and aprons, also for children's wash dresses. It may be purchased by the piece, comes folded, ready for use, and being bias, may be applied readily to armholes and neck edgea Detachable Sleeves With never a thought of the wash board or the flat iron, one of our big dressmakers, in the early spring, de signed a dainty tennis costume. This costume had a huge, flaring pocket on one side for tennis Wlls, and detach able sleeves. That is, the sleeves were arranged to button on to a drop shoulder; they could be removed when playing, and buttoned on again when the game was over. It was a pretty notion, and a highly practical one for the tennis girl; it was still more practical for the housewife and he readily adapted it from the frock 0 MCt'iLL The Middy' or Dress Apron of serge t and satin, with its tight-fitting, smart sleeves, to her frock of chambray and cotton crepe. Now, in stead of royying back, pinning, wrink ling, and generally soiling a fresh dress, she merely removes her sleeves and proceeds with her work, and when the necessity for freedom of action is post, buttons them on again. The wide pocket, too, is made good use of. The Pantalette Skirt Phactical housekeepers are obliged to climb a ladder now and then, to hang pictures, drape a curtain or por tiere, or reach a glass of jam on the very tip-top shelf of the cupboard, and then what a nuisance a fluffy petti coat is! Along comes the efficiency expert and designs the trouser skirt! Blouse and trousers, whcih resemble a pair of overalls, are joined togeth er; Jhere is an outside skirt worn in the ordinary way, which may be omit ted when there is strenuous work to do, and donned when desired. This is, perhaps, one of the most sensible ' -AW costumes of. the year. While It is ideal for the house, it is quite as good for the out-of-door girl who enjoys & mountain climb; excellent for walking, boating fdnUlikVsptfl:: The idea may" be carried out attractively in the nice dance frock; the pantalettes being fashioned of filmy fabrics to corres pond with the frock.

IS INSPECTING THE MINES TRINIDAD, Colo., fcept. 23. A girl of 12 years told John D. Rockefeller, Jr., how to deal in stocks and bonds, run a bank and finance a corporation that would pay 40 per cent annual dividend on 10 per cent common stock. At Sopris, where Rockefeller, in the course of an examination of the Colo rado Fuel and Iron properties, stopped to visit a public school, Blanche Mc Arthur, daughter of a coal digger, e. plained the workings of the pupils' bank and store. Rockefeller was eng tertained at an exhibition of first aid staged by boys of the school and also inspected a clump of miners' houses. John R.
