Jus at the belt-line. The rest of the robe fall, in graceful folds to the floor. The skirt Is very long In dront and bu a graceful clinging train.. The only decoration In the whole gown consists of narrow bands of dull, rose satin arranged In Greek bor der. With, this gown Is worn a large nattier blue straw hat trim med with white wings. The chifr; fon acarf is of dull rose chiffon. In the sketches I am sending, you will notice the sunburst cloak, ; which has been said to be a tri umph of simplicity and draping. Motelnteresting perhaps is (the Coat and skirt shown in another sketch, which fashionable women are going to cultivate. , I am sending, too, a sketch of gown I created for Miss Gertie Millar In "Gypsy Love'" which shows the effectiveness ot a black costume when relieved' by a glim mer of gold, flashes of scarlet and touches of purple and blue. And then, not by any means least In interest among the season's crea tions are the new "Mermaid modes," if I may be permitted to thus christen the latest bathing dresses, which are really o attractive that they will give one a new interest In the daily dip, and more than make up for all the preliminary and subsequent trouble It Involves. Though, to be sure, the necessary undressing and redressing are both alike very much simplified nowa days, thanks to the fact that under wear is reduced to a minimum, and that the all-in-one dress, with its array of stud-fasteners In place of refractory buttons and loops, or the even more elusive hook and eye, Is practically the universal wear of women of all ages. And, do you know, there Is ex traordinarily little difference be tween the day dreBs you will dis card and the suit you will don for the sea, and whose fabric, will al most certainly be the taffetas silk, which has been simply supreme all through the season, and la now bringing its brief but glorious reign to a by no means unworthy end by thus fashioning the smartest bath ing dresses. For you may take It from me that the fever of favor for this particular fabric has burnt itself out by now, and that within the next two or three months we shall have transferred 'our alle giance from' taffetas to bengallnes and Ottomans, heavy soft crepes and the always exquisite charmeuse. Yes, taffetas lias almost had its day, but in these, Its last hours, you are going to love It almost as well as when It first made Its appearance and its lnstantaeous success, and it will probably be associated with some of your greatest successes, if, for example, you elect to have a silken bathing dress whose tunic is all of demure black, save for just a central and bordering piping of cerise silk between narrow bandings of black braid and for some tiny, closely clustered buttons, which re peat and emphasize this same vivid coloring. The tunic is deeply curved in front and at the back, and slit up almost to the waist at either side, where bandings of braid hold it together sufficiently to preserve the slender outline of the figure, but not so closely as to hide the piquant presence and contrast of knickers of cerise silk. For this is the nov elty note of the season's bathing dreBses the wearing of very bright ly colored knickers, either cerise, emerald green, sapphire blue, or royal purple, with a black tunic, the swathed turban head-dress al ways repeating and emphasizing the chosen and contrasting color, while very often, too, high Batin boots and silk stockings to match will be added to a toilet which will certainly, therefore, be suffi ciently eye-arresting to satisfy the woman who wants to attract atten tion. Oh! and you must not forget either to have a waterproof satin bag, which will give a final touch of color, while I would suggest, too, that you should provide for a very desirable variation of effect in your toilet by further Investing in a cap of reversible satin, outwardly black, but Just showing a flash of the inner color in the bow loops at one side, and then In a pair of black stockings and satin boots Another and somewhat less start ling idea is to wear rather full "trousers" of black and white spotted foulard beneath a tunic of black taffetas, finisned off with a deep sailor collar and loosely knotted scarf of the soft spotted silk, the correct cccompaniments for this distinctly attractive toilet be-, lng black footwear and a square handkerchief of the foulard, which is laid over and permanently at tached to an Inner and closely fit ting cap of rubber which protect the hair and leaves the outer silk free for draping and decorative purposes. The other most favored form of head wear is a Dutch cap, which Is gen erally made !n plaid silk, and al ways provided with a capacious bag of waterproof silk to match, the care which is taken to haveall the accessories of even these somewhat informal toilets in complete accord being a very satisfactory sign of feminine realization of the Import ance of the little details in any suc cessful scheme of dress.

Have you ever considered what that old-fashioned phrase mesnsT Then you have not watched any on tire from running, his muscles limp, his head bent, his features flrawn, his eyes dull from exhaustion. When you are "all run down" you are in exactly the condition of that spent runner. What does the runner do? .Rest. What should you dot Rest Well meaning persons seeing your dull eyes and noting your listless manner may advise exercise, but that is because they mistake fag for sluggishness. If you are growing fat and heavy, and Inert from inac tivity, assuredly you need exercise, but being "all run down" is quite a different state. In the first case your vitality is clogged and impris oned. In this the vitality li nearly gone. The reservoir of your strength Is almost empty. It is a matter ot the greatest concern to' you to. as . aoon as possible, refill it Firat rest "Catch up" with sleep. Or, as I have heard busy persons more than the actual rsst required to meet the demands upon your strength at this time, In anticipation ' of the demands of the future. It Is a marvel what an upbullder Is the simple device of going to bed an hour or two hours esrlier than usual. Try It. Give It the thorough trial of continuing It for at least two weeks er more. The enfolding, threadbare mantle of the years will seem to fall away from you. Your eyes will be brighter, your complexion clear and more pink, your step lighter and your spirits higher. In brief you will be younger. Never mind If you cannot sleep at first Be persistent and woo the "sweet restorer," Do not believe that the late hour habit of years cannot be broken. It can. I know, for I have broken It. Take a midday rest The best msthod Is to retire to a dark room, loosen your stays, lie flat upon your back, without a pillow.

Go where you can set the cleanest, freshest air, and breathe deeply of It If you are In a city go to the roof. Draw the Towel Across the Shoulders So Briskly That the Skin Tingles. At the same time eat nourishing food Depend more upon careful Chewing of the food than upon large quantities of it Eat meat once a day and eat vegetables rich in Iron, for they are makers of good blood. Eat asparagus and beets, cabbage and spinach and tomatoes and little. bread, and that only of the coarse grained kind. Cleanse your lungs many times a day by Inhaling deeply, holding the air in the lungs for as long a time as was spent in the Inhaling, then sweep the lungs clean by expelling the air with long, deep breath, When the rest and nourishing food and deep breathing are doing their, work of rebuilding and you feel strong once more, exercise may be resumed. The easiest and most natural of these Is stretching. Rise on tiptoes and stretch.. Raising the arms above the head with finger tips extended, stretch, atretch, stretch. At the same time yawn if you can, for this frees the body of the pois ons that are weighing down the lungs and vitiating the blood. At this period ot rebuilding the "run down" system, slow walking will be ot benefit. Don't let any one tempt you to over-strenuous effort Saunter. Refuse to hurry. Have you a friction band? If not buy one. It will be money well ex pended. Or make one for yourself from a rough new towel. Fold the towel so that It will be four times ite original thickness. Sew the folds firmly together on both sides and at the ends, and to the ends attach strong stitched bands. Grasping these bands firmly, draw the towel across the shoulders so briskly that the skin tingles and reddens. In the same way draw it across the back, 1 the hips, the bsck of the legs, the stomach. Is It to vigorously rub the spine. To do this draw one end of the fric tion band over the shoulder and draw the band briskly up and down the back. A glass of milk into which an egg has been beaten is a good beginning for the day, and a glass of hot milk on retiring a good waV to .complete it Ten or more glassfuls ot water drunk during the day will aid the rebuilding by washing away the poisons that have done the down pulling. Do your rebuilding, as much as possible In the out-of-doors. If fresh air did not perform eountless serv ices for you It would steady your tired nerves by banishing worry. We never worry while drawing In great quantities of pure air. Pat'i Puzzler.
