Mauve Ehll Fon Mouss Ellne trimmed with bands of White venetian lace and with motifs of Irish Guipre. The Long sleeves Are tucked Lengthwise and elaborately trimmed to correspond. Contrary to expectations White waists have not gone out of fashion but Are being worn almost As much As Over. A a. Weekly ablution. Of our a ancestors a no longer suffices. There is Many a Man or woman who would be horrified to be told that he or she Falls Short of cleanliness yet such is the Case even when one prides herself on personal dainties a. A a Quot you cannot be clean if you do not tal Reat least one Bath each Day. If that seems like a harsh judgment try going for two Days without a Bath then wipe off the skin with cold Cream. The condition of that cloth is an unpleasant revelation. The Dally Bath need not be in a tub Quot but it should be Moro than Tho British cold sponge that with Many does duty for cleanliness. Cold water no matter Hov invigorating does not remove soil. A. Bath to to cleansing should consist of plenty of hot water so soft if possible a a pure soap and a scrubbing Brush and plenty of friction in drying. Cold water May be used later As a Spray or tonic but the warm Bath is is Sonilal. T it is. Doubly necessary if one lives in cities Quot that care is paid to bathing. The. Grime of the big town is not Only disfiguring it is germ Laden and every Effort should be 1 made to keep free of it. In addition to the daily Bath one should be particular to Wash Tho face ears and neck and under the arms cach time she hands As most of us kno for to our sorrow need Sci in blog a dozen times a Day. 1 it is Folly As is so often done to Point to our ancestors weekly Bath and Superb strength. Times have changed and so have ideals of cleanliness and the person who. Takes two Baths a. Week these Days is ashamed to have it found put. Dainty lace Blouse. Despite the Vogue for one piece frocks the lace Blouse is still High in favor with women of limited wardrobe. The simplest of these blouses Are of heavy tuscan or Brussels net Laid in a succession of Fine tucks running vertically in the wearer is Stout and horizontally if the wearer is slender. Sometimes from four to six tucks Are sufficient for each of the fronts while Tho sleeves broadly tucked from shoulder to wrist Are finished with a net Ruche harmonizing with the Jabot which relieves the front i it Anel More elaborate net blouses Are combinations of tucks with Venise imitation Irish or. Italian lace. In these blouses Broad bands of lace tire let into the shoulders from Collar to sleeve top while rows of alternating Large and a a mall medallions form the Border of Fiche drapery overlapping pin tucked narrow Center panels. Odor should be elusive just a suggestion of perfume is a the really Dainty girl will allow herself. who Are decked for con quest unconsciously make them selves a nuisance to every one who comes near them by their Choice of perfumes. If Fiey would but learn that heavy scent is vulgar life would be More comfortable for those who a cd me their Way. The girl who restrains her love of onions for the Sake of her fellow Man who would be horrified at the thought of an odor from perspiration will saturate herself with Cologne or sachets and think she Lias added the finishing touch of elegance. There Are some persons who Are made i by even a suggestion of perfumery there Are others who become unconscious from the smell of heavy scent in a close room while still others Are made to sneeze violently by breathing Ratchet refit red girl would want to make herself a nuisance to her neighbors. Leaving the question of Lack of refinement out of it perfumes should not be used excessively from a humanitarian standpoint. We should refrain from any practice that May make oth ers uncomfortable. A girl once wondered at her Lack of popularity. She was a charming girl but slipped up on Many an invitation that a went to less attractive friends. Her amazement was great when a candid older woman told her that liar Lack of invitations was due to her love of tuberose which she constantly wore. A heavy odor of perfumery also gives Rise. To that it. Is necessary to Deaden Uncleanly doors that it is a substitute for personal dainties a. A an odor to be permissible should be so elusive As to be almost a imperceptible. Delicate caches May be placed among ones clothes. The new american Beauty pad makes everything fragrant. So do the blips of perfumed pasteboard. Toilet Waters used after the Bath or in it rarely Are objectionable As they have a fresh clean smell. A heavy perfume Skuchas Musk Attar of roses tuberose or Patchouli should be Tabooed. A drop May make the wearer a nuisance. Y. If one cannot refrain from the perfume habit and this habit is As. Common to a certain Type of Man As to women to least a scent should not be used when one is going into a Public assemblage. No one has a right for a personal gratification to make others miserable. The doctor who goes to Church smelling of Dodo Foron or the Gerni fear Ful woman who attends a theater reeking of Asafoetida May be no More of a nuisance than the girl who has poured the perfume flask Over herself As a finishing touch to her toilet. Proper care of the neck when climbing stairs. I have heard girls complain because they have to Many flights of stairs in order to reach their rooms. Now with a Little practice they will be Able to go up the stairs without feeling the climb it All. Hold the head erect the Chest up breathe slowly and deeply and put the Ball of the foot la rely on each step. \1 if you follow this method you will soon form the habit of a making the climbing task less tiresome. Lace yokes and sleeves continue popular in spite of their Long use. Woman tells How to avoid double Chin and sagging Throat mus cles the Marks of age. Ii now do i keep my. Back straight and my neck from sagging a said the woman who spent hours each pay a at a typewriter Quot i write with a my Chest up and. My eyes turned Ceil Ingward. ,.

A a often when working in a room by myself i twist my head and take neck stretching movements Fille writing to fight off the double Chin and Sag Ging Throat Muscles that Are so common for women who sit at a desk or piano much. A the Way i happened to think of combining neck development and work was by watching my grandmother.
