NKW YORK July 24. With advancing
uramtr ease of design and airiness of
xture are. viry properly , the distinguishing
ature of ehildren'D fanhlnns. Things nre
citing wonderfully elitap , too , fn that If
ic only knows where to find thoni many
mous bargains may be picked up tor the
eng of protcrb.
At all of the large shop * certain days of
ath summer month are devoted to the kale
1 ' 'white goods. " which Indu'les ' white
ndergarnients In all sires , trouesvaux for
ablcs and tiny frocks for small glrlB and
oy , Everything at tliu ! > r places Is cheaper
ian at the regular outfitters of children's
car. so the "whltn goods" days arc well
atronlzccl by thrifty mothers.
On the other hand It Is only at the out-
tterg that all the sizes of children's gar-
nents may be found ; and the saving of
me and worry In going there first will ,
xcept to very skimpy purges , make up for
ic difference In price.
At a well known children's furnishing
fctablUhmcnt In Now York may be found
[ the newest styles for small fry of every
ago ! and occasion , Beginning with the
layette , the little garments go all the stages
ft babydom to the very last day of miss and
nasterhood Then there are costumes for all
the sports and exercises , that may be had at
tmall expense : bicycle , golf , tennis and
floating Bitlts for the bigger contingent of
oth sexes ; yachting clothes for miniature
nen , and bridesmaid and first communion
owns for little misses.
There nre even to be found , alas , ready
nadc frocks black and white silks , and
l-ottons , and plain mulls with black ribbons
bens In which tiny maids as young as G
nay mourn for the dead !
American mothers , as i rule , are not
[ 'given to the benighted custom of putting
their young children In mourning and even
I the death of a father Is considered to scarcely
( warrant It.
But In Paris it is the thing for mere
( babies to wear mourning for a near rela-
Llve. Clad In deep and fashionable black
llrotn head to foot , both boys and girls will
[ be teen , like gloomy little crows , walking
Jn the streets beside berlbhoned nurses.
| And so the New York furnishers , too. keep
nournlng for children which Is bought by
few silly persons and forced on helpless
youngsters ,
At all of these children's shops layettes ,
Iiaby trousseaux , are conspicuous and at
tractive features. These are In all prices
la suit all buyers , and may be elaborate
lir simple , as the purchaser desires. Hand
work , real lace and fine linen may be had
for the rich mun's baby , and for the child
jf the less fortunate , domestic lawns and
pretty , simple edgings , realize little gar-
Iraents quite as refined In effect If not In
( quality.
Many of the more expensive layettes arc
| put up charmingly. The tiny clothes are
llvlded off Into half dozens , tied with rib-
Jlions and sold in a ribbon-trimmed basket ,
[ which Is also a receptacle for all the other
I baby paraphernalia. White or colored
[ silk , or plain or dotted Swiss will be shirred
| over the basket , covering It completely.
A lace-edged frill and ribbon bows finish
the rover , and inside the basket there arc
oft puff pockets to hold the many bauds
and pins needed , a silk sponge , cxnnb , brush
and powder box.
These last are usually of celluloid and
most commonly white.
Again the celluloid toilet articles will be
In a delicate tint to match the basket ribbons
bens , which are generally pink for & boy
and blue for a girl.
Then , if baby's papa is very well-to-do ,
and Its mamma has frivolous tastes , there
may I * a big pearl or a glltterine brilliant
imbedded in the handle of the powder puff.
The best ot the ready-made layettes are
o ! French manufacture- of the little
'Mint" garments are atwn by band , wltk
I matrrlftls of a fairy fineneKs and many of J
i the drcsa-up things running to Intricate
decorations of drawn threads and fancy i
stitching. India lawn and real Valenciennes !
lace , in narrow edgings and entre-deux , Is ;
the favorite combination for the long out- i
Fide roue and for the petticoats nainsook 1
and French cambric as fine an silk will be I
mod. . I
The new models for Infants' dresses differ
little from these long seen , except that all >
of the tiny slerveti are now made the com- !
fortahle bishop shape. For the rest there
will Ina round or square yokd from which
bangs the skirl , which may be plainly
hemmed , or rise Know oliove a lace-edRcd
flounce the name narrow tuck * and lace
Initurtlon that ornament the yoke. Where .
the yoke and skirt are joined together , and .
for the neek band , xvlll be a tiny bias of !
the lawn , hold down with fancy herring- '
hone as feather stitch.
To conclude. Infants' dresses are made a
little shorter than formerly , but other dif
ferences arc mere matters of detail.
For out of town lawn parties , children's
lances and other festive occasions , the
llllputlan shops show sornr dainty French
confections for young ladles from G to 12.
These- are all made of the most elegant
materials , pale silks delicately striped and
figured. Swisses , painted muslins and
organdies whose crisp sheerness attest their
expense. Yellow Valenciennes lace will -Vc
used on them In profusion , along with
quantities of glistening taffeta ribbon In
wide and narrow. With narrow black satin
ribbon , or "baby"elvet , black footing will
Bomctlmes trim one of these little organdie
frocks with stylish and grown-up effect.
A low-necked , short-waisted body sewed
to a full Bklrt Is the design for the youngest
of all of these little toilets , which are worn
with high , white gulmpcs of mull or lawn.
These sleeves are In short shoulder puffs ,
flnlnhed with a twist of ribbon or lace-edged
frill , and on hot days these may be the only
protection to plump , bare arms.
Some ot the French gala frocks for girls
from 4 up nre made high necked and long
Hlecved. and In the airy textiles arc worn
over separate Blips of silk or satin.
These are also "one-piece" costumes ,
which means bodice and skirt sewed to
gether , the variations In styles from 4 to
10 coming In with various arrangements ot
berthas and collars on the bodice.
For example , a smashing little rig of corn
yellow organdie , patterned with pink apple
blossoms , had n fichu collar of white silk
mull. This was sowed In the low neck nnd
crossed In . .hn front , the long ends tying In
the back real woman fashion.
This was Bhown In other colors and In
slr.e'K from C to 14 years.
For glrlf of 4 charming frocks may be
had of the Indian dimities In all patterns
and colors , trimmed with narrow laces and
plain and Dresden taffeta ribbons.
A low-necked blouse-body and full hemmed
skirt Is a pretty model for these. Cape
collars and revers of all description give
breadth to the shoulders of all of the smart-
oft of the Juvenile frocks , and sleeves ,
though growing smaller , are necessarily
loose , for fcummcr wear.
Many stunning afternoon gowns are made
of the ecru batistes over colored silk lin
ings ; skirts of the Imported models In these
being very short , and for the youngest ages
stiffened at the back to stand off woman-
fashion. Hats for these wonderful little
costumes are also Frenchy to a degree ,
either big rough straw pokes burdened with
feathers and gauze , or else great shirred
affairs of delicate mulls with bows and ro
settes of lace. A curtain frill of lace will
also sometimes edge ouo of these hats nnd
shadow a little face quaintly , the evident
Intention belnR to make KtrU In their dress-
up clothes look as much like Paris dolls
as possible.ELEGANT
There arc tiny parasols of taffeta silks ,
plain and ( Inured , with pluied JrllU anil
enameled fctlcks , minute handkerchiefs of
fine lawn edged with lace , and open work
silk stockings In black and colors.
At Newport * ome quaint and novel ar
rangements of the hair distinguished the
little daughters of many smart mothers.
One coiffure fashion for little maids Is to
part the hair in the middle and tie the
curls In a hunch at the ears with narrow
ribbons. Again the part may be made at
the left and the curls combed like a hoy's
over to the right and tied In one bunch
a la Velasquez. A soft , curly top-knot at
the crown of the bead also tied with ribbons
U another style of balr-drcsslng very becom
ing to little maids of the French type.
With almost all dressy frocks some jew
elry Is worn by even the tiniest girls. For
the neck there are thin gold chains worn
with plain gold or enameled lockets ; brace
lets are keen on round 4-year-old wrists ,
and rare Is the plump hand that does nol
sport a fine ring with the birth-Jay stone.
At all of the out-of-town places of any
fashionable notice the dressing of girl-
children Is on this elaborate order , and every
detail of the little toilet will match in ele

onably fair-minded and congenial , elect to
spend a summer , not In a stuffy boarding

a portable house of four rooms , likewise a

"With a'dos for comfort and protection ,

the main original Investment , the house ,
remains to them and is good for twenty
further summers. H can be stored near
where It has stood , and next season trans
ported at small cost to a region entirely
new. Sny the first summer at the wajer-
side , the next might be among the hills , the
third In deep woodland , the fourth In some
place where the fat earth laughed Into barv-
ett. With wicker couches , cotton hangings ,
a few rugs , folding chairs , a bamboo table
or two , one might achieve charming Interiors

Nowadays , when there are so many other
things than bouses portable , a very little
foreslghted knowledge would enable them j
to avoid the worries cf housekeeping while
tasting all Us sweets. In competent hands
an oil stove for cooking is both cleanly and
economical. The warmth of It along with
the open fire would be mighty comforting
upon chilly days end of cool nights and
mornings. In very hot weather It could
be moved outside. Or If the Indwellers bad
the fad of scientific cooking , they might
put their trust and their eatables In an At
kinson cooker , heat from which would never
be oppressive.
If such elaborateness Is tempting it Is
also beyond reach of many a mother who
yet longs to give her flock the enlargement
of green fields. Let her buy a cheaper
house , one say coming at { 150 , set It up upon
a strip of beach , a bit of abandoned farm
land , or even the vacant lots that yawn
beyond city gates In wait for the wary su
burbanite. Rent of such sites will be
almost nothing , and further , 'they may
often be obtained to close to the home as
to make furnishings and supplies the sim
plest sort of matter. But here , away from
the city's bustling roar , the village's dead
stagnation , what ease and peace for the
tired mother ; whet Joy. what lusty health
for her young barbarian brood ! Here , too.
the bead of the house may come to catch
breath and gather strength afresh from even
so slight a contact with the primal mother ,
There Is and has been ranch talk of house
boat delights. The plan of having bouse and
boat separate offers a hundred advantages
over the houseboat proper. For while the
houseboat Is a costly luxury , pobslble only
at an expense too great for the mass of us , a
tight barge can be hired by the month at
a very low rate , Duly fitted with a house It
can bo towed to Its anchorage In the lake or
at the riverside at an almost nominal cost.
Then , when fishing palls and rowing grows a
burden , when the younglings grow too
venturesomely aquatic or sigh for fresh fields
over which to chase butterflies , why. up
and away to the woods , the fields , with no
barge rent running on , to trouble your peace
of mind. Later , If by chance you live In a
region of canals , It may be. worth your while
tr > hire another barge , put your house aboard
of It and take a tow along the waterway to
some point handy for the next year's outing.
There the house can be stored , along with
such furnishings as will not go handily In
trunks. Thus you shall become as fore-
thougbted us the snail which carries bis
house about with him wherever be goes.

of the proceedings of the Armtlrtn Associ

dark ringlets falling to hcrttrioftldcr * and a.
brlRht smile Illuminating bM ! fel-e. she took
the platform to talk on "ThdtiHie of Speech
to the Deaf. " ' ' '
Helen Keller , deprived wh n 19 months
old of the powers of speech 'hearing an * ,
sight. Is now. at the age of ! 6 'J-ears. enter
ing upon a course of Btudy'Vhlch she ex

to recite In the same claw * * to pass the
Bame examinations and toent r > ln the same
competlton with young wouien' who arc In
the possession of every fatialtr. Much was
printed several years ago concerning this
exceptionally gifted girl. 9htts developing
into a woman of beauty and .httBlnments. .
She Is fulfilling all the promise of her
younger years , when the scientific world was
dUctiBflng her remarkable case. Her father
Is an editor in Tuscumbla , Ala. He Is a de
scendant of the Fairfaxes of Virginia and
her mother was a Massachusetts Adams.
She Inherited a taste for llteroture and the
study ot languages. She lost three of her
senses when Bhe was an Infant , and practi
cally nothing was done for her education
until she was taken in charge when 7 years
old by Miss Sullivan , who has been her com
panion and teacher ever since.
The tame of her accomplishments had I
attracted many people , both scientific and
curious , to the commencement exercises , all
anxious to hear the afflicted girl , who Is
declared by her teachers to be the bright
est of any of her age , not excepting those
In possession of the full five scntcs. She
was Introduced by Miss -Sarah Fuller , prin
cipal of the Horace Mann school. Boston ,
where she received the greater part of her
education. Without a trace of embarrass
ment she began her little speech. To many
of her hearers the articulation was some
what Indistinct , and for the benefit of those
familiar with the signs of the deaf and
dumb , Dr. Alexander Graham Bell trans
lated her words by the manual alphabet.
She said :
"If you knew all the Joy I feel In being
able to speak to you today , I think you
would have some Idea of the value of
speech to the deaf , and you would under
stand why I want every deaf child In all
this great world to have an opportunity to
learn to speak. I know that much has
been said and written on this subject , and
that there Is a wide difference ot opinion
among teachers of the deaf In regard to
oral instruction. It seems very strange to
me that there should be this difference of
opinion ; I cannot understand how anyone
interested In our education can fall to ap
preciate the satisfaction we feel In being
able to express our thoughts In living words.
Why , I use speech constantly , and I cannot
begin to tell how much pleasure It gives me.
"Of course , I know that It Is not always
easy for strangers to understand me , but It
will be by and by : and In the meantime I
have ( he unspeakable happiness of knowing
that my family and friends rejoice in my
ability to speak. My little sister and baby
brother love to have me tell them stories in
the long Bummer evenings when I am at
home , and my mother and teacher often ask
me to read to them from my favorite books.
I also discuss the political situation with my
dear father , and we decide the most perplex
ing questions quite as satisfactorily to our
selves as if I could see and bear. So you
sec what a blessing speech Is to me. It
brings me Into closer and tenderer relation
ship with those I love , and makes It possi
ble for me to enjoy the sweet companionship
of a great many persons from whom I should
be entirely cut off If I could not talk.
"I can remember the time before I learned
to speak , and bow I used to struggle to ex
press my thoughts by means of the manual
alphabet how my thoughts used to beat
against my finger tips like little birds striv
ing to gain their freedom , until one day
Miss Fuller opened wide the prison door and
let them escape. I wonder , If she remembers
how eagerly and gladly pi y spread their
wlugs and fled away. Ofcourte U was not
easy at first to fly. The rpecjch wings were
weak and broken , and bad lout all the grace
and beauty that bad bean theirs ; Indeed ,
nothing was left save the Jmpulte to fly , but
that was something.
"One can never consent Jo creep when
one feels an Impulse to soar. But , never
theless , it seemed to me i nometlmes that I
could never use my cpetch wings as God
Intended I should ute them ; , there were so
many difficulties in the way. so many dis
couragements ; but I kept on , trying , knowIng -
Ing that patience and pert > veranre would
win in the end. And while J worked I built
the most beautiful air castles , and dreamed
dreams , the pleasantest of which was of
the time when I should talk "like other people
ple : and the thought of the pleasure It would
give my mother to hear my "voice once more
sweetened every effort and made every fail
ure an Incentive to try harder next time.
"So I want to vay to those who are tryIng -
Ing to learn to speak and tbose who are
teaching them'Be of good cheer. ' Do not
think of today's failures , but of the suc
cess that may come tomorrow. You bave
set yourselves a difficult task , but you will
succeed If you persevere , and you will .find
a joy In overcoming obstacles a delight in
climbing rugged paths which you would per
haps never know if you did Dot sometimes
slip backward ; if the road was always
smooth and pleasant. Remember , no effort
that we make to attain something beauti
ful is ever lost Some time , somewhere ,
somehow , we tball find that which we fcttk.
We shall * | > eak ye * , and lnc too. a God

The wrists of the long evening gloves of
the knowing are no longer thrust into the
ragbag when the fingers have become In
capacitated for further service. The most
dainty ami unique tobacco pouches are
evolved out of these wrists , nnd the senti
ment that has always attached to milady's
glove lends an added and piquant charm
to such a gift. Indeed the fad for these
tobacco pouches bids fair to outdo all
previous souvenirs , and the young man
fortunate enough to receive one cherishes
It with the most tender pride. They are.
moreover , delightfully simple and easy ot
construction. They may be embroidered ,
painted In water colors or left severely
plain , according to the tastes nnd accom
plishments of the fair bestowcr. or per
chance according to the degree of affection
with which she regards the proposed re
cipient of her handiwork. One of the
prettiest that I have seen was of white kid
iplentlfullj besprinkled with violets , the
gloves having graced an especial occasion
where the donor wore violets , the gift of
the present owner of the pouch. So much
cf sentiment , however. Is not at all a
necessary accompaniment of the souvenir.
The top of the bag has narrow silts cut
In It , and through these silts ribbon Is run
around twice , by which the pouch Is drawn
together like an old-fashioned bag or purse.

An old-style gown Is now known by Its
immense balloon sleeves.
Black velvet ribbon Is conspicuous In mil

Piques and linens , both white and colored ,
are made up after the style of the duck

In the morning.
