providing her self with wine thing must the butty Oe flat tfae queer look as if the woman and her clothes wen walking in opposite direc or as if the booae wen OB Use and had thrown wrapper over her Of everybody intbese days of hygiene and common that lie a Flora I have often insisted both by tongue mnd pen that every woman owes a duty to the world poor we owe so many duties to the world but one espe cial duty peculiar to woman is that of beautifying the earth and doing her best to counteract the material mnd deadening influences always strug gling to come out on All women are not all are not or or or imposing hut every woman has a best and it is her duty to know it and to make the most of and to keep it on view instead of the worst which so many of the dear creatures seem deter mined to Every if she means to fill her own place in the is bound to make the mofit of herself and to keep on doing It as long as Kite Of course there are ever so many ways to apply this and I have in other places pointed some of them out and urged them upon the attention of the sis but today I confine myself to the one question of To begin every every de evpry caprice of costume must be founded upon personal It mjiy be thought too candid a and I do sincerely hope that every wo man reading these words will be right eously indignant at such a but to such an one I will say Of my it is not meant for you any more than for hut there are wo men I 1 the well dressed woman must be not many hours from her and rauHt carry about her that atmos phere of freshness BO obvious aiid charac teristic of the upper classes in England well groomed they call and a young whatever else you may say of does suggest the idea of buckets of combs and in a more sub dued should the well dressed wo whether her costume be of silk or cloth of Next to the bath comes and again I no whatever the fabric of her outer dress may is well or dressed as she should unless she has dainty But a good many of us cant afford it cries a voice in my and I reply i But we all my for dainty does not always mean and one of the very daintiest outfits of linen that 1 ever saw was made for herself by a young girl of small means but great about to be The only expense in the whole matter was that she had used cambric instead of that Stout cotton fabric which in New York IB culled and although a few cents in the yard cheaper than is utterly incapable of being made not to outer into my little bride had crocheted and tatted and netted and knitted the greatest variety of and had run little blue ribbons in ut neck and sleeves and and had embroidered a big monogram on a corset should never be worn tight enough to hinder even under violent It should never make one feel it uncomfortable to throw upon a lounge in the nor abouM it be a relief to take it off at night It should be tfae old fashioned name a stay to the holding it in comely form and making a harmonious surface over which to fit the And to do this properly the corset must be well made and of good Dont buy poor if yon go without one of your gowns to secure the price of good If you have a naturally good figure a cheap corset wont fit you if you have a poor figure no dressmaker can make it better unless yon give her a good corset to fit Cheap corsets are always straight up and scant in the bust and stiff and unyielding of fabric and furnished with bogus bones ttlaf warp and break at Leave every thing under to the dress reformers as objects of holy horror and whets to their appetites for A caprice of fashion in these later years has suggested underclothing and corsets of various tints and cul minating in black During one of my visits to Paris I allowed myself to be persuaded into buying some seta of this black silk including a cor but I did so merely to secure a me mento of a vagary of the mode sure to soon pass away for however pretty and piquant or or or black may be in contrast with a white neck and nothing satisfies tbe or soothes the conscience of good like creamy white in cambric and laoe and must here make an exception in the matter of which to my never be unless in harmony with some especial are a matter where one may not judiciously Be your pretty or be sure you will spoil it both as to appearance and feeling by wearing cheap and therefore ill fit ting When I have time I mean to devote myself to the question of why cheap gar Donnet he would be to oenv to the coiled dinner Then one final point upon which I most strenuously insist is this Every woman has her own and uhe never will be welldressed has learned what it and learned to humor it and encourage it Are you straight and of painful Dont wear stripes or redingotes or tailor made Are you quite the reverse Eschew draperies and fluffiness about the and horizontal I walked a little way yesterday behind an unfortunate lady short and very who wore a velvet dolman reach ing only to the waist in the back and very high upon the and I was sorry for But this paper has reached its utmost and lest it should not be printed at all I must here cut short the thread with which I have caught together these stray fig leaves of and say at once FEASK BE NiE IN LOSS OF MEMORY FOR SIX A Siocular Story of ft A strange story of loss oranemoryis hat told by Arthur who disap leared 30 last from ad was found by his wife in At the time Dow disappeared rom Littleton he was a successful mer chant having a business worth on which he realized a Dow was a church a strictly temperate and enjoyed the confidence of the entire He was married to an estimable lady and had two aged 8 and He disap no one knew Rewards offered and detectives rat to no His wife and after a month of gave him up or supposing he had met foul le left his business affairs in such good condition that his wifes friends soon straightened them In February Dow was greatly sur irised to receive alerter from her hus and dated Its tone ndicated mental Dow at once telegraphed to Philip Win a married sister in to go to acoma and take care of her she boarded a train for Philip Winsor went to Tacoma and found the missing He looked His hair had grown down to his shoul ders and his beard was long and

a cheap shoe long and narrow and with a high instep as short and wide and fiat And so with all the rest you cannot economize on shoes or gloves and be well one word more If you have slippers let them be chronic never leaving the bedroom It is very nice and com f brtable to have a pair to slip into as you go to your bath or your or sil at your toilet table at but there ends their appropriate Well fitting yet cozy boots are the wear for every other emergency of They are the most becoming of all foot gear they brace and protect the and they are in the long run no pun intended far more comfortable than slippers or low Of course they may be BO prettily and delicately made as to suit the airiest cos and when of that style are a fas cinating detail of a dancing I remember a pair I had made of violet silk to match a which were really And as a proof that good and well fitted boots preserve the feet from change or I will mention that my own have been made upon the same last for twenty years without the least and that I can put on a new pair before breakfast and wear them all day without once remembering But they are good So having dis posed of what may be called the confi dential portion of a womans let us consider those outward and visible signs by which the world will judge whether she is well dressed or As to So many women seem to fancy that a very cheap silk is necessarily better than a good woolen or even cotton it is not so and I always want to say as much to the dear struggling souls whom I often meet and in some places had op1 much uimmei robes of that thin and rustling silk which reminds one of dried autumn leaves whirling along before a dusty Even such silk costs quite as much as good or some one of the hundred other varieties of soft woolen and the cost of the cheap and showy passementerie used to trim the silk would have provided enough good or or handsome but tons to make the wool dress all that it should Here is a little secret Any one accustomed to think of such seeing you in that silk would perceive that you could not afford to buy a good one and had to put up with the second choice or the seeing the good would take it for granted that you preferred it to and that you were able to buy very good one and trim it Another suggestion is this Let each year look out for and only provide gowns and wraps enough at once for that A street if tailor or at least in the plain and somewhat severe style suited to a walking one or two dinner or evening and orettr house dress are all that anjrbodr needs for one season even in and these should be renewed each and made iu the latest style of the A great many persons always object to any new They wont and they consider bustles a de and they object to high shoul and they dont like the new or tbe
