Kli Akl has taken an entirely new hold upon to woman of Fash on a hold that is As Strong As was that of the Golden Browns at the beginning of Tho season. In fact there is a sort of frenzy for Khaki despite the fact that it is not. Always pretty. Sometimes raw sometimes Brazen and again indistinct of tone it takes expert handling to be made into the creations that one Raven Over in Tho French salons the Shade however is peculiarly becoming to a Reddish blondes of whom there Are so Many among Tho smart set of Paris and London. One of the smartest specimens of Ithaki silk is Shoffn by Worth the skirt being Plain save for Ati Inch wide band of its own material piped with delicate Green silk and running around the skirt above the hem. With it is worn a pretty Short coat with full sleeves held with cuffs to match these turning Back quite deep Over the sleeves. Kimono Coats of Khaki silk stitched with fancy embroideries Are very smart indeed for summer Wear and some of the Long models Are taken As an excuse for the employment of quantities after quantities of handsome lace in White and Neutral tints.

But if it has come already the Best thing to do is to heat a tub of a Ter to 120 Degro be and immerse the Plant in it. Allow it to remain in the Bath about half a. Minute. Then remove it and after a Little give it another dip. This generally kills the spider but a third Bath May be necessary. After getting the Plant free a from Tho pest keep it away by the Liberal use of water. For your prize photos. Frame of White cardboard that will. Hold five pictures. We give a design of a photograph Frame for holding five portraits which can be made out of White cardboard. The space for the photographs should be marked out in Pencil on the Board and then Cut out with a Sharp Penknife. The edges should be bound round with coloured paper fastened on with gum this should be very carefully and evenly done if we wish to make the Frame look neat. Some pretty Little Floral designs May be painted on the spaces Between the portraits. The photographs Are held in their places by Means of thin strips of paper pasted across the Back. The support at the Back is merely a piece of cardboard hinged on by a piece of cloth glued at the top and lower Edge. The Frame can also be made to bang up on the Wall and Gooseberry Green in spite of the flattering attention paid to Khaki and everything suggestive of Brown one cannot pass by unnoticed the Quot exquisite shades of Green the newest of which is Gooseberry a Dainty whitish Green As col and re freshing As the proverbial Cucumber.

Khaki Linen raided or embroidered in White makes an Quot excellent trimming for a White Linen and Oliero Are some pretty striped stuffs showing White stripes on a Khaki ground. David Warfield a Well known actor who has made an unprecedented hit in a the music inst Eric in which he has bean playing for three yers. College and the stage. Only of late that footlights have. Welcomed College bred. The stage opened its arms to the College actor and actress at a comparatively recent Date. In the Olden time the Young Man or the Young woman from College who wanted to go upon the stage was welcomed usually because some stage manager thought that the neophyte would be Likely to pay for his or her own costumes than because of any his Tronie ability. But lately College men and College women have been entering the business upon equal terms. The College play has occupied a position of Honor in the theater for self Era years. George Ade put it to the fore with a the co Liege widow a and mrs., Young followed with a Brown of at Yale is another of those College plays which has attained Success. More Are promised. One fault that some of the experienced managers and actors find with the College plays is that the Youn men who play in them cultivate a the Sid pocket school of they act with so much repression that they do not seem to act at All. Anybody who is familiar with College life of to Day knows that in Many respects it has lost some of the exuberance that used to characterize All colleges. Young men in their Early twenties Are nowadays frequently More profound and imperturbable than they Ever Are afterwards. This pose is reflected in the drama which treats of Colleg e life. Brown of Harvard is especially fond of this manner with still hands and face. Yet Lawrence wheat who is to go starring in George Adeys a Archie a won that distinction through his Gay Efy and Freedom of manner the same having been on View in a the College in a just out of colleges Young a a Jap Wheelock who starred in the play was a Cross Between dignity and Good Fellowship and whether for that reason or some other the play did not hit the target As squarely As the other Ade plays have done. One College bred composer is Horatio Parker the Yale professor of music who wrote the incidental music to a the Prince of . Mrs. Fluke in a Mary of Magdala a availed. Herself is College musicians and other theatrical managers ure coming to see that men trained in colleges in which they have been found qualified to teach later Are usually musicians expert enough to Supply the musical setting for plays. Marlon Villard a recent graduate of Smith College has just gone on the stage. Her first part was that of the gushing Young woman in Clyde Fitch a the . Conc Dently with her appearance on the stage a the Shulamite a written by a College student and Quot the great Divide a written by a College professor Weie entering upon new leases of profitable life. It the same time also Percy Mack Aye a College Jan had just placed with a new York manager the manuscript of a new play. His play in which Joan of arc is the principal figure has been for More than a year one of the Best pieces in the repertory of Sothern and Marlowe. Plain Are now decreed for the hair.

R a Jwo list i want a George Farren of thai Bush Temple company told an Ami eur dramatist a is a Bright Frothy tragedy something Crisp and Snappy a a Titow do you mean a asked the would be author slightly puzzled.

A when the curtain goes up two persons Are discovered on a sofa one a pretty Young woman the other a Nice looking Young Man. They embrace. Neither says a word. Then a door opens at Quot the Back and a commercial traveler enters. He wears an overcoat and carries a umbrella. You can Tell at once by his manner that he is the husband of the Young woman. At least that would be the natural inference of every discriminating playgoer., a a the husband takes off his coat draws a revolver and in the midst of the silent embrace of Jinero and her Oine a the Young woman Falls he fires again. The Young Man Falls dead. Quot then the murderer comes Forward putts on a pair of eyeglasses and proceeds to contemplate his sanguinary work. A a great heavens a he am on the wrong a the son of Wilton Lackaye. _ Wilton Lackaye one might judge from his eternal air of superiority ought to be above such Ordinary everyday human weaknesses As repeating Tho smart sayings of children.

The Combs Are usually better also when made with tops without knobs or other decoration. The Button Phis Are used by girls who Wear their hair up. Tho top part of these pins turn Back Over the hair in a Fiat piece of Shell like a Large Button. The effect is very neat. For keeping in flying ends of hair also there Are Corkscrew pins of Amberg strange looking things that screw into the hair in spiral fashion so that one would Jeari they might never come out again. But Uliey Are in fact comparatively easy of adjustment and Thoy Are admirable for keeping the hair neat. There Are also pins which come in pairs called Staple pins. They have Amber or Shell tops and Are in the shape of Large Staples As their name indicates. They are1 worn on either Side of a Low knot or if the hair is braided and turned under May be fora in place of a Bow. The tops stand out Well from the head.

It is practically impossible to consider the More extreme hat shapes of the Senson and the coiffure separately the new coiffure is a difficult thing to manage.
