9 The Well-Dressed Girl By Fannie Ward f , Soraethiag New in Velvet ' Tq. prove my absolute. Rood faith In my pralso of velvet, 1 am showing you today two of my own velvet gowns. One Is a" simple little street sown Rnd one Is a dress for mori) formal occasions. It may be used for simple dinners, theater and for alt evening parties where strictly full dress is not'fequlred. Tho little streit frock .may be mado of silk velvet, of chftfon velvet or of simple velveteen, as your pirrse dictates. The fron yellow are fine for the girl who owns several such gowns. But to the girl who owns only one such dress I recrtmmenil tnupe or the wonderful new brown In tho dark shado known as Tcto de Negro." The wide net fichu may bo made by any clever fingers put n strip of dainty embroidery down the center tmd finish each edge with n weo frill of lace. The ncnu snouia De aooui one yaw and a blouse Is of tho high-waist variety.

Among my .acquaintances thero Is ti dear little girl who Is everything that wo sum up In the adjective "nice." Sho belongs to n nice refined family, she has been nicely brought up. J3 h e s no beauty, but she's nice, and pretty, and wholesome looking, and she dresses nicely, and she has been taught not only all the useful domestic ac complishments, but Is it fine musician, and performs equally woll upon tlio gas range and the piano. This girl Is ox- the ' sort of every mother and sister would like to see her son or brother marry. Pho's the vory typo of younir v.oman to make a good wife, but for tome reason that nobody can' explain sho doesn't attract men at alt. (?he never has a beau. .She Is never Invited to go to any place of amusement by a man, and she's left looking wistfully after the other young people when they go trooping off without her to have a good time. Naturally, this distresses the girl very much. She's young, and sho craves the enjoyment that belongs to her time of life, and she wants to know if there's anything that sho can do to take herself out of the wall-flower class, and get Into f actl.v girl that For Formal Wcnr.

But I think we. of today, might modify that to "All In velvet gowns." Velvet Is the craze of the winter. For the' street, for the boudoir, for the thea ter,; for the ball and even for the bride, veiyej reigns supreme In the mode of thei winter as thn favored material. Ai ricent bride had her wedding coat, hert traveling suit, her most wonderful tea 'gown and even her bridal gown of velvet. '' Rjch, in color and shading, soft and clinging Jn -line, flattering to face and figure alike is velvet. Then, milady, why not wear ItT A Little Street Gown. cut "V" at the throat, and has a lltle collar such as we daughters of live ull know how to fashion from a bit of Val, and some soft lawn. The Jabot Is in truth a weo four-in-hand tie of the lace. Thin bit of daintiness is particularly becom ing and fetching agalpst the .rich velvet background. Tho sleeves are cut kimono-fashion and fit quite close to the arm. The uuffs In combination with fur or chiffon, I ee soft wide bands of black satin like with'slllc of laco, with net or ctoth of silver ahd gold, velvet Is rich and truly elegant. It acts as background and foundation, as trimming, and as gown it self with truly regal beauty. If Jwere girl of limited income and wlhedfoloalt as well as my richer e.s tersXi would try to manage a velvet suit Jlth"a fairly long coat. Then I should'haVe a simple evening gown cut off the same piece of goods. Tile tho bunch, so to spook. Of course nobody can really tell what It Is that attracts a man to n. maid. In Its ctsence It Is that Illusive something that wo call personal magnetism, and thut is the gift of the gods. Wo have all seen girls wh6 wore homely and commonplace to the last degTee, who had neither conversation nor wit, and yet men flecked about them ns bees about a honey pot. We have seen other girls beautjful, attractive, Intelligent, and adorned like Solomon in nil his glory, that no man ever gave. & second thought to, and tho explanation of the phenome non lay in the fact that ono girl had that I mysterious attracting power, for jhen. the come-hither look in nor eyes tnat draws men on. while the other ha,d it net. Personal magnetism In the result of nature, not of cultivation, and rcVa girl can do much to make' herself attractive to men, for. after all, men are simple cicaturca and easily pleased, Any giri w:th ortllnary Intelligence can team enough about the things' men care for 'to talk Interestingly! she ean acquire the art of listening with an expression at absorbed Interest white a mnh talks to her, and unless she is an utter fool she can lead a man to talk about himself. Bo vast Is human vanity thut every man or woman we meet within five minutes gives us a tip on his or her peculiar weakness, and we have only to follow that lead In order to make ou reel von agreeable to thut particular individual. Most of the girls that I have known who never had a bean had only them selves to blame. They were girls that terrified men by either being no self-cqn-sclouo and thy that a man had to do aH of the entertaining himself, or else they were girls Who were so monopolistic that they made a man feel as If he had been kidnapped, and was In danger of being dragged to the altar by his captor However, In a eaie like that pf my Utile girl friend who wants to have a good time, and who is left out of alt of tho frolics of the girls and boys about her, the difficulty is squarely up to her mother. There Isn't much that the girl can do herself to help the situation, but her mother can do everything, What this girls needs, and the only The, only other ornamentation on the gown la the half-yard-wide girdle of cm- hnmpil velvet or oriental silk. It must be from three to three and a half yards thing she needs. Is opportunity, and that long and finished In heavy silk tassels to I her mother can give her.

Tho blouse is a full kimono with ex tremely long shoulder seams. The skirt dripes high In front to show a V-shaped silt 'and drapes low In back to form a round train. .Simplicity is not the keynote of the winter. As 'a general thing It takes an that which folds about the wnlat In narrow belt, with one end falling Just to tho right of the center. At the bottom of this end and at tho center waist In buck o fashion is found velvet embroid ered In soft tinted roses.

What Dame Fashion Is Offering TWO NKW STYLUS DK8C111UKI) KY' OLIVETTE FOG A shadowy something drifting soft, 'Gemmed thick with paling stars aloft; The softened blur of apple trees, That, swaying, whisper In the breoze, And scatter storms of rose and white In blinding sweetness through the night. And then a thickening of the mist, The sliver blurred to amethyst, " And on "me creeps the fog. And through the depths of frosty white. ; Gome memories of another, night, Tho scent of apple blossoms blown, The mist your mouth upon my own, And you, afraid to give bo much, Came to me, trembling at my touch. Then mist again, and mumortes go Like phantoms shall I never know That lies beyond the ogT to invite her daughter to their parties. and the young men to pay attention. The o'her toys and girls can't go grlly off and leaVe Mabel sitting at the window watching them If they have Just been en tertained at Mabel's house, or are ex pecting to be entertained there. Many a girl's social success rests on a basis of her mother's cakes and sand wiches. If nothing for nothing Is the rule of the world. It Is equally true that something for something always goes, and we can always get what we want if we pass the legal tender over the counter. Mothers cai make or mar their daugh ter's popularity In society, and It Is well for them to remember that you can makit people fight for any kind of a package of tea If you will, give an attractive enough chromo with It. Therefore, ,lt behooves those parents with daughters who are not run after to get busy baiting their traps. If a- girl lacks attraction It Is all the- more the mother's duty to make her home so delightful and so hospitable thai young people will like to come to It, Teopla will always go where there ore good things to eat and a bright, cheery atmosphere, and against such background even a dull and homely girl shines with a borrowed radiance. Also the people that you en tertain are bound in common decency to make some return, and so the girl who could not go anywhere on her own Initia tive bowls merrily along the gay social way through the momentum her mother has given her. Youth Is not only the pleasure time of life .with a girl. It la the season 'of her opportunity, of her chance to marry and fettle herself well In life, and It Is Just as much parents' business to help their daughters, secure good husbands as It Is to help their sons- get into business. A grouchy .father and' an Indolent mother have queered ' many a girl's chances In life. My little friend's mother could make her a belle and give her a Joyous younth if she would. So could almost any other girl's mother, and the pity of It Is that the mothers are too selfish and stupid in do It. flKJpkt eSsasssssssssk XafsBSBim 'iBSKjKFNB SHlSlsStSSBBBBBBBBSBBB This most graceful evening frock on tho loft Is mado of apricot silk caxhmoro.

The housemaids of Cleveland, 0-, have formed a union, and they are greatly exercised over the question, "Shall we or shall we not consent to receive our gen 1 1 e m e n friends In the kitchen?" Oood for the Housemaids' union I believe In It. Bet ter hours, better pay, better sleo ping rooms I hope the housemaids will get all these things. Why notT Out about this kitchen business. Pause a moment, doar Madam Presi dent of the Itouso maids' union. What Is the matter with the kitchen? Is these something dis graceful about If - Pray tell! And, If so. when did its dts- graceful dishonor beglnT Ugly? A good, wholesome, cleaf, bright, cheerful kitchen? Why, to mv mind It's the prettiest room In the house. What's ugly about a shining floor, and clean, curtains, and a bright range, and rows of good cooking dishes? I've seen dozens of stiff little reception rooms, with stiff little girl chairs in thxm, and a stiff, berosled carpet on the floor, and a stiff gilt mirror on the solemn walls, that weren't half so pretty as a kitchen to my eyes. I don't see anything disgraceful about a kitchen, unless It is dirty. Seems to me If I could cook well enough to hold a good place I'd be proud of It, not ashamed, and, whisper, gentle maidens of the Housemaids' union, I never noticed any aversions to the kitchen on the part of any man f ever met I. Thcs average woman has to argue with 4 her husband by day and by night to keep lil m from making aomo excuse to get out into tho kitchen. k Don't send your young man away from the kitchen, gentle Hilda or sweet Eileen. Lead him right In and see how mild and tamable the sight of that shiny range nnd those rows of delectable spices will make him. If I had a young man who was a little slow In coming to the point of talking about the flat I'd never see ' him any where but In my kitchen, and I'd wear a good, big, clean, serviceable kitchen apron when I saw him, too, Oh, yes, the tubs skirts and the elab orate hsJr are well enough to catch his vagrant eye, but when you want to really enchain him give him a doughnut of your cooking, or a dozen cakfs or so with raisins In them, and watch the cau tion and the reserve melt from his man- WHERE CLOVES COME FROM About twp-thlrds of all the cloves come fiom a little island nmed Temba, that lies about five degrees south of the equator, .Just within sight of the main land of Africa, between Mombasa and Zanzibar. Thd island of Pemba Is only thirty-five miles long and ten wide. It ie u low, Jungle-covered, fever-haunted spot, surrounded by coral reefs and in habited by Indolent, unintelligent and Improvident natives and a small handful of urnDcans, The clove tree Is singularly delicate and must have a combination of climatic conditions that exists In a few places on cartn. Where it will grow at all it will grow wild and in profusion, Captain J. K. K. Crftster of the Itrltish rxyal engineers has Just published an uc rount of a survey he made of the island. Ho estimates the average yield of a tree tr. be thirty-five pounds of cloves, and says that with a little attention to the 'rlartat "ns this could easily be doubled, I Pittsburgh Dispell ner tike snow In the spring sunshine.
