USES OF GABERDINE NEW FANCY LIKED
FABRIC IS EMPLOYED IN VARIETY
Handsome and Dependable, It Haa
Full Right to Its Popularity-
Sketch Shows One of the Lat-
est Tailored Models.
Gaberdine Is a fabric leader this
year. It Is used for suits, coats,
dresses and separate skirts, and Is
shown in all the season's fashionable
shades. It Is a very dependable fab-
ric, and deserves Its populurlty. Gab-
ardine Is tight-woven, with a fine
hard twill, and while Its texture Is
soft, It generally holds a "press" well,
and Is therefore admirable for the
many-plaited skirts and dresses de-
veloped this season.
The smart suit here Illustrated em-
ploys gaberdine as Its choice of fab-
rics. The Well-fitted skirt, which has
abundant fullness without exaggerat-
ed flare, is laid In wide box plaits, two
In front, one centering the back. This
type of skirt accords with advance
style bulletin. For the early fall a gen-
erally closer-reefed assemblage of ap-
parel Is looked for.
The tailored model shown In the
sketch requires six yards of gaber-
dine. Three-quarters of a yard of
faille silk Is needed for the collar
and revi rs, If a seam at the center of
the back Is not objected to. If It Is
desired 'hat the revers and collar
piece b * camless, double this quan-
tity is ii -«>ssary. Two yards of 80-
lnch-wiil. silk are needed to line the
The suit as designed Is of dove
gray, with collar and buttons match-
ing in shade.
As will be noted, t two-Inch bias
piece of the suit's fabric trims and
gives "body" to the skirt's edge, and
at each plait a matching bias section
Is set on to a depth of ten inches, and
The slashed revers and collar are
cut In one. While the coat is in sil-
houette a single fitting affair, a
trifling bit of fullness is shown ail
around. The peplum, barely hip-point
length, flares smartly, and Is equipped
with sizable saddle-bag pockets. The
sleeves are bell-shaped and button-

garments of the tailored type. Lack i

A not-to-be-overlooked feature of
the present season's tailored suits and
coats is the exceeding beauty of the
linings selected. In spite of pesslmls-1

First Introduced for Young Girls It
Has Been Welcomed by Her Elders
—White Lace Lavishly Used
One of the fancies that the dress-
makers have launched for the young
girl this summer la a combination of
a silk sacque with a ruffle lace skirt
The Idea has been taken up by older
women with success. The combina-
tion is an admirable one for the wom-
an who wants a practical gown for a
summer resort—something that Is a
compromise between a ball gown and
an afternoon card party frock.
The sacque is made of taffeta, usual-
ly In an eighteenth century color, Its
edge outlined with nineteenth century
ruchlng. It Is slightly low In the neck
and usually belted, with a piece of It-
self fastened with a bunch of pink
roses in front.
The skirt is of that new kind of
lace that is quite popular this season;
there Is a net foundation with a wide,
sprawling lace design worked over part
of the surface.
These skirts are made of one deep
Spanish flounce or a series of graded
ruffles, placed at infrequent Intervals.
Lace skirts aplenty are being advised
by the dressmakers for women who
are looking for something newer than
chiffon and not as thick as voile.
This movement has brought in
gowns of black lace—the kind women
wore a quarter of a century ago. They
are made of Cliantllly, of Callot lace
and of the large, figured silk, Spanish
lace. The latter is especially attrac-
tive, as It comes in touch with a num-
ber of Spanish fashions which we have
incorporated. The foundation is of
net or thin chlfTon—not of silk or
satin, as in other days; therefore, It
Is available for our hot summers.
Whltelace Is lavishly used for all
kinds of frocks for the young girl this
summer. She even wears It In the
morning, In the form of a Cherult
shirtwaist, which drops over a skirt
of white serge, belted In with two-Inch
ribbon of white taffeta, with a plcot

EVILS OF THE LONG DRESS
Many Reasons Why It Is an Abomina-
tion When It Is Worn on
A long dress in the house, on a well-
swept carpet, Is all very well—we do
not deny its gracefulness—but a long
dress on the street Is an abomination.
It Is in your own way; It is In the
wuy of everybody else. If we hold It
up, we look like a washerwoman
turned forepart behind, and It draws
all our clothes forward In a way which
would destroy the grace of a Ninon
de I'Enclos. Everybody behind us can
see the lining of the skirt and notice
the frayed braid, for braid is always
frayed on a long dress, and take ob-
servations on our petticoat and stock-
ings and the tops of our boots.
We have no hands to help ourselves
with—one hus to hold the muff or
parasol, as the season may be, and the
other is employed with the train.
If we let It drag, either it Is trodden
off In the course of half an hour's
promenade, or else six feet of the side-
walk behind us Is not utilized, for the
pedestrlaus must fall back, or plant
their feet on that moving mass of ruf-
fles nnd fluting and cigar stumps and
silk fringe and street refuse, nnd thus
win for themselves the unconquerable
hatred of the wearer; for, although
we all know that long dresses on the
street are a nuisance, and that people
cannot avoid stepping on them, we
are always indlgnunt when they are

NEW EVENING GOWN
VARIOUS DESIGNS IN VEILS
Those That Are Loose and Flowing
Perhaps the Most Popular—Many
Match the Hat in Color.
Loose, flowing veils are worn. Some
are made circular, while others are
draped. The circular veil, with a
round opening In the center, which fits
over the crown of the hat, Is well
liked. The lacy designs with woven
scroll patterns are especially attrac-
tive. Some of these veils are gathered
on to an elastic band, allowing It to
be adjusted over the crown of the hat.
Some hang in straight lines to the
shoulders, while others are finished
with a ruche or band, which may be
caught around the throat.
There Is a marked tendency toward
the use of extensive veils. The ex-
tensive use of color In millinery af-
fords the well-dressed woman an op-
portunity to wenr a veil to match the
color of her hat. Brown, navy blue,

stead of the evening and are given an
air of solidity by the lavish applica-
tion of colored ribbon.
One gown of white tulle has six
panels outlined by old rose ribbon
reaching from bust to knees, passing
under a folded belt of the tulle.
It is evident that the American
dressmakers are determined to use up
all the ribbon that the mills can sup-
ply during the summer. Whether It Is
a fashion or an economic measure, no
one knows, but the result Is the same.
The plcot-edged silk ribbon probably
leads all tho others; It not only trims
gowns, but hats and underllnen.

Hints for Beauty Seekers
To remove perspiration odor, fre-
quently bathe, using a lotion made of
one dram alum and one pint water, or
one pint of water and two heaping tea-
spoonfuls bicarbonate of soda. A
powder paste of one ounce nlum, two
ounces orris root, nnd two ounces pow-
dered rice will also help to check ex-
cessive perspiration. The too lavish
use of perfumery of any kind should
be avoided, as It shows lack of taste.
Every woman desires to have a nice
head of hair. How to preserve it, If
you have It, and how to secure It If
you haven't It Is a vexing problem to
many, but the only way to solve It Is
to go to the root of the matter. This
root Is gqpd health, says a writer In
Farm and Home, which means proper
food, exercise, sanitation, ventilation
and an optimistic mind which refuses
to worry. Do all In your power to
secure these essentials to good health,
and the battle Is more than half won.
If the teeth and mouth are always
kept clean, there would be fewer com-
plaints about decayed teeth and tooth-
ache. Clean the mouth after each
meal, rinsing with water to which has
been added a little alum, salt or bicar-
bonate of soda, tincture of myrrh, or
listerlne, peroxide of hydrogen—any-
thing that Is cleansing or antiseptic,

outside of teeth.

"Deadly Weapons" in Law.
The use to which an article Is put
and not the nature of the article de-
termines whether such article is a dan-
gerous nnd deadly weapon under a
ruling by Judge Keogh of the City
Court of Norwalk, Conn. In a recent
criminal action the defendant was
charged with having struck the com-
plainant with a cylindrical block of
wood six Inches long and three Jnches
In diumeter. The prosecution claimed
that such block was "a dangerous and
deadly weapon" within the meaning of
the Connecticut criminal code, but
Judge Keogh decided otherwise, de-
claring that If the prosecution's claim
was true a feather duster used "to
tickle a man to death" would also be
a dangerous and deadly weapon.
Treatment for Oily Skin
Powder is often an unsatisfactory
way out of the difficulties of an oily
skin. Powder will never cover the dis-
agreeable traces of perspiration on the
face or excessive oil secretions. Pow-
ders are excellent for ordinary pur-
poses, being to a great degree ab-
sorbent. But whep there is any special
Inclination to olllness on the face other
measures must be taken. Proper lo-
tions should be applied. Among the
best is one made of boraclc add and
rose water and another of the same In-
gredients with distilled witch-hazel
added. The following rectye Is for ex-
treme cases: First thoroughly wash
the skin with pure soap nnd warpa
water; then apply this lotion: Sulphate
of zluc, half dram; tannic add, half
dram; powdered alum, half dram; wa-
ter, eight ounces. Then dust the face
with tills powder: Salicylic add, 20
grains; boradc acid, one ounce. Do
not use oils or coldcreams on tho face,
but do not bo afraid of generous appli-
cations of pure toilet waters and
colognes. Abstain from highly spiced
and oily foods; also cundy and rich
