Tell her what a she does want say3 a writer in Tho now York. Herald the shops Are a full of these Oft told tales of embroidery and no new idea comes to her. It seems to Beju King on the horizon or just Over it where Sho cannot see it. It must be something novel some a a thing most effective and Rich. Arid then a he sees it a Friend has seen something which gave her the idea and lids adopted it to her Awn use arid Joy of Joys. It is a kind of work which May be done on the Beach on the veranda while waiting for the mail by electric Light Ajja indeed Iri any moment that is free from other Joys arid duties.

A Row of these motifs gives a charming effect. This might be made of silk ribbon velvet or soft braid. Figure three is ribbon and makes a very original trimming. A primary department which enables them to remain after six years of ago. Afternoon for elderly ladles. Dear Madame Merrl a i wish to entertain about 40 Middle aged ladles.

In a Young professional Man should the ladles be presented to him or vice versa does the age of the ladies make any difference in the above question. Is it proper for a Young lady to ask a Young Man into the House after seeing her Home at Nigl to if they Are but slightly acquainted is it Riec Essary to ask him to Call. Jack and Jill. A Man is affray presented to a woman and the age of the woman makes no difference. If the hour is late it is not customary to ask an escort to the House to matter How Well acquainted. It is not necessary to ask a Man to Call but it is perfectly proper to say an evening that you will be at Home. To cell brate a birthday. A correspondent asks for suggestions for a birthday Celebration for about eighteen a guests who do not dance or play cards. Also what to hive for refreshments. Ask your friends to come in a costume representing some one. Whose a birthday occurs in that month or to. Wear something indicative of their own birth month. For january the Stone is a Garnet the Especial Days would be a Nevy year so and Quot twelfth there will he no dullness at this party. For refreshments have a big birthday cake with candles a a Good Way to arrange the car idles 1b to put the cake on a Block of Wood and stick the Candle holders in it so As not to mar the frosting. Tijmen for something different in refreshments i would have scalloped Chicken or sweetbreads minced Ham and Olive sandwiches salted Pistachio nuts molasses kisses and Macaroon ice Cream. Grape juice and Coffee to Drinic a with doughnuts for the men. I never knew a creature of the masculine persuasion who did not audibly express his pleasure at the sight of a Fried holes a As a youngster of Riby acquaintance Calls them. To add zest to tie occasion you might offer prizes for the costume or character hardest to guess. A it is very Little More trouble to get up a costume party than to go in regulation evening dress and the pleasure is nil Nitey More from the fact that every one is equally interested. Madame Merri. Filet lace Coats. Filet lace Coats Are the latest fad of parisians. They May be trimmed with Flowers Cut from Creyonne and Chintz and appliqued on embroidered in coarse floss or treated in other ways and May be Loose or close flit Ting but one thing obligatory is that the filet must be coarse and very open and therefore More than Ever like curtain lace. Filet is durable and As Long As it is fashionable and is made expensive in its treatment with embroidery and appliques it is desirable for too Many of fashions fancies Are As perishable As they Aro expensive and Beautiful. It one of the new hats. Age for kindergarten. Will. Madame Merri kindly state How old a child must be to be sent to kindergarten and How Long they remain Young Mother. From three to six is the age limit out some kindergartens have added the new Liat shapes Are Many and varied beyond description.
