Belts and Girdles.
The belt is one of the most impor-
tant accessories in the summer ward-
robe. Kid reigns supreme for outdoor
wear, but the deep, 1830 girdles of
heavy moire antique or tri-shaded soft
i-ouisine ribbon are the correct things
for setting off the fluffy frock, with its
frills and flounces.
There was a time when woman
thought one belt a season all that was
necessary. Times have changed, and
now she must have at least a dozen
leather and silk belts to be at all well
The most chic ltld belts are six
inches in width and are finished in
the back with three scallops and three
fiat brass buttons of not extreme size.
The fastening may be a brass buckle,
eight inches long, with long, sharp
prongs piercing the kid. The buckle
alone costs $1.

or applique, or various other devices
can be employed for further elaborat-
ing the design.
The bolero consists of fronts, back
and sleeves. The back is laid in a
broad box plait at the centre, with out-
ward turning plaits at each side and
the fronts in outward turning plaits
for their entire width. These plaits
and the outermost ones extend over
the armseye seams, so giving the
broad shoulder line. The sleeves are
in Dell shape and box plaited, falling
loosely over the full ones of the fash-
ionable waist. At the neck is a collar
with stole ends, which is applied over
the jacket on indicated lines.
The quantity of material required
for the medium size is -M4 yards 21

Hand-embroidered towels are the
latest vogue in towels for actual use
where something especially nice is
desired. The embroidery is done on

Lemon Jelly and Charlotte Russe.
An attractive way to serve lemon
jelly is to combine it with charlotte
rnsse. With a sharp knife, rhop stiff
lemon jelly into cubes and put three
or tour tablespoonfuls of it on each
plate. In the center of each mound
of jelly place two or three small lady-
fingers, and over all pile vanilla fla-
vored, sweetened whipped ereajn.

Fry’pish in Olive Oil.
Any fish fried in olive oil will be
found more delicious .than if cither
butter or lard has been employed.
However, none but the very best im-
ported oil should be used, and it
should he allowed to eome to a "blue
heat” before the fish is put in. This
can be tested by throwing in little
pieces of bread witli the crust re-
moved. if they become a golden
brown while one counts ten the oil is
about at the right temperature. Use
sufficient to float the fish, as it is one
ot the paradoxes of the kitchen that
the more grease used in frying, the
less greasy will be the article fried.
The Summer Girl's Freckles.
Here is the recipe for a favorite
English lotion for removing freckles
in the summer time:
Take an ounce of lemon juice, one
quarter of a dram of borax, powdered,
and half a dram of sugar. Mix well,
and let it stand in a bottle for three
days. It will then be fit for use, and
should he rubbed on the face and
hands continually. »
The prettiest laces for lingerie hati
are those of very fine mesh and deL1
cat 4 pattern. They should be rather
straight than with deep scalloped
edge, as the latter lessen the width
of the brim and detract from the daiia
ty effect of the hat.
* Rose Drops.
Put In a small granite saucepan
three and a lvaif ounces of sugar (sift-
ed granulated sugar is best), add a
tablespoonful of water, four drops of
cochineal, and four drops of essence
of rose. Stand over the Are and as
the mixture begins to melt stir gently
for two or three minutes and then
take from the fire. Have ready large
sheets of oiled paper, and pour the
syrup in drops about the size of
large peas in rows on the paper. As
soon as they are firm and hard, re-
move the drops with a limber knife
or spatula, place on a sieve in a warm
place until thoroughly dry, then pack
in glass jars or tight boxes.
A SMART LITTLE COAT.
Box coats of silk are among the
most fashionable garments for little
girls and are equally correct with or
without collars. This one is made ot
tan colored taffeta w'ith collar of
heavy lace finished with silk cording,
but can be left collarless if preferred.
The design is an admirable one and
is well adapted to all fashionable noa
teriais, pique, linen and pongee as well
as silk and cloth. The quantity of ma,
terial required for the medium size (4
years) is 3>k yards 21, 2% yards 27 or
1% yards 52 inches wide, with % yard
of all-over lace for collar.
