Useful Hints on How to Avoid Freckles and Other racial Blemishes That
Come of the Pleasant Summer Sunshine.

his virtues, -with Summer so nearly upon
us. it strikes me that an article on beauty
and the njn -will be very timely. That is
t say. I shall dwell here chiefly upon
hi disagreeable features.
Lot me begin wiih freckles, those tiny
blemishes 90 disfiguring to a pretty
throat, face and hands. According to
theory. 'it is not. the sun which causes
freckles, but the light from its electrical
rays; and it Is the difference in the
chemical make-up -of their -skins which
causes these rays to affect some maids
so much more seriously tban others. So
for these t hin-pklnned fair ones the ounce
of prevention is the first thing to con
sider. Those who freckle easily should
always keep a red-brown veil on hand,
for the Summer outings on land, or water,
for . veil in any other color is no use at
ail. this and this alone, being aWe to
ward off the burning sun rays.
Then, before going forth to. canoe on
the Willamette or camp in the beautiful
Oregon woods, the easily freckled skin
shoulcl Je well rubbed with cola cream
and powdered, for with this mask and
1 he plain chiffon or gauxe veil shun the
dotted one as you would viper it is
possible to get through a yachting or fish
ing excursion without serious damage.
Nevertheless-, every night for all ea
wns of the year, the skin susr-ettible to
freckles should be massaged with a good
cream, for any exercise.-, which helps to
stimulate the wkln also helps to shoo
away the blemish, whatever its nature.
But if the freckle comes to stay with
you, notwit hstamling precautions, try this
simple lotion, applying it several times a
day with a soft linen, rag:

Tan and arute inflammation of the
skin .are caused by the same Influences
that produce freckles, the direct exposure
to sun. the reflection of light on water,
the glare of a wide-open window, hot
winds, etc. The cure for each begins, as
nefore, with the ounce of prevention.
Wear the red-brown veil when jaunting
on land and water, don't sit close to a
kide-open window unless the pharle is
drawn down below the shoulders, and pre
pare the skin always with cold cream and
powder before going out.

Tips for Puzzled Portland Maids and Matrons on Summer Etiquette.

True, the omission may be made up to
some extent by an early Autumn vis"it,

there. was no time to pay visits before
leaving town, but it is better to take no

quaintances, owing no debt of affection,

up when expected.
The woman who would keep in the
social swim should keep a calling list.
' with the'names of all those she visits,
with the date of last call alongside,
and the words "returned" or "not re
turned'' beside that. In this way she
keeps up with obligations, running no
risk of offending persons whose ap
proval is necessary for her own social
.omfort and. prestige.
w In the matter of dress the end of a
season marks a considerable let-up in
-formality.- The maid or matron whose
best frocks are packed may very rea

neat traveling gown, made attractive
with fresh gloves, a corsage bouquet,
and her most affable manners. On her
part the hostess may likewise relax the

this treatment will need to be continued
for some weeks before the hair is im

One Portland girl who is now visiting in

those who are. In negligee at the mo

in the vulgarly loose gown before the

Arrived at the place of Summer
jaunting-, the lady first at the water
ing place or mountain resort must call
upon the one who comes last, with the
address of her hotel or boarding-house
written In one corner of her card. Then
w-here the two acquaintances happen
to be stopping under the same roof, the
first comer must take the initiative in
matters -showing the other around. It
is "up to her" to introduce the last
comer to the agreeable persons she has
met and do any other kindly little turn
which shall make the new arrival feel
more at her ease in the strange place.
Toung girls who land unaccompanied
by escort of any kind - at an out-of-town
resort, as it is sometimes neces
sary for business women to do, need
to be careful of the acquaintances they
make. If some perfectly -unknown man
is assiduous in his attentions the un
protected girl should make a point of
sitting under the wing of some elderly
woman guest at the same house until
the man has proved his worth. If he
has not yet met the girl he admires,
the gentleman who passes like a ship
in the night before her life, must re
quest an introduction through other
persons and not take it upon 'himself
to "pick" acquaintance with her, for,
every other reason aside, a very strict
eye is kept on strange young persons
at all Summer resorts. The least in
discretion may bring reproof from the
cold-eyed proprietor himself. Then the
girl who has beentalked about out of
town will be talked about In town;
and the man who is not thought a gen
tleman In one place will surely not be"
consldered one in the other. In fact,
though many formalities are relaxed in
Summer, the matter of a girl s dignity
should be more than guarded,, for the
very ease With which acquaintances
are made puts it In peril.
But there are times when the chap
erone is by no means a necessity, even
though her presence is always desir
able. These Include the accidental
walks taken down open roads the
golf links. the little constitutionals
taken up and down piazzas, and so on.-
Try danger of gossip at the out-of-town
resort is surely to be considered
at all times whatever its nature; so a
still tongue Is a very good thing to
take away with you on your Summer
outing, as well as good behavior of
other sorts.
Say nothing that you dare not do; do
nothing that you dare not tell about
as you would the time of day. Therein
lies the chief wisdom in all conduct,
and naturally its chief politeness. Don't
forget the tip.
Radium Blue Is Allied With
Chanticleer Red
Both Are X e-ted for Extmnneai of
Their Brilliancy.
THE new "radium" blue, which is be
ginning to" be in evidence in Port
land, noticeably in the millinery, is only:
a degree less brilliant than the "chanti
cleer'' red. Hotti of these are prominent
in .the modish hats, and touches of them
are used in . the smart new gowns for
The tall toque is more and more in evi.
dence, and many of the new toques are
made to seem taller than they really are
by the effect of the trimming. In some
of these the " brim is turned up close
against the crown, as much as eight or
nine inches. The rose-covered toque con
tinues in favor, and the toques covered
with silken, poppies, corn-blossoms and
other suitable flowers are. also keeping
pace. , -
A rather eccen-trlc. yet entirely charm
ing and modish hat was observed after
Wednesday's matinee in a popular lunch
eon resort. It was a huge, flat frame of
burnt English straw, about the low crown
of which was wreathed large blue corn
flowers, among which were placed, just
over the right eyebrow, two large pink
roses. A band of blue velvet encircled
the under brim.
A similar design, carried out in rose
leaves, with a full garland and two ro
settes of cerise oatin (made to look very
like roses by means of a fold of material
rolled around itself) upon a huge flat
shapeof green tagal. was seen.
. . -
A millinery eccentricity that is jut now
emphasized in Paris, according to letters
from abroad, is the big plateau of fine
straw, which is so set upon the bandeau
as to leave a very short and upward
flaring brim at the left side and a long,
down-drooping brim, which all but sweeps
the shouider. on the right. Low crowns,
massed in soft drapes, with rosebuds or
other flowers nestled in the sheer meshes,
are the only trimming.
Motor Bonnet Is Important
Feminine Adjunct
If Oae Hmn Car. Oae'a Friend
May Have, So One Mint Be Ready.
THE question of the motor bonnet is
even more important now than
during the Winter months. In a limou
sine a dress hat is not in bad taste or
uncomfortable, hut for the touring car
and the open road a hat is Impossible
from the standpoint of both comfort and
good taste. Many women who do not
own their own motors have friends who
do, and for this reason the motor bonnet
is coming to be an essential part of the
feminine wardrobe. A new wrinkle in a
motoring bonnet Is the huge square of
grass cloth, fashioned into exaggerated
baby caps, gathered close about the neck
and tied with silken strings that match
the colored lining. They are not made
up on a frame, as this is not necessary
with the stiff grass cloth. Ornamental
silken flaps fold back from the face, the
flaps matching the color of the lining and
strings and softening the rather harsh
effect of the grass cloth about the face.
Children's mitiinery is now coming into
its own. With the little folk released
from school, as. they soon will be. and
ready- to be shipped away to the beach or
mountains, more attention is being given
to "hatting" them. One of the "grown
np" ideas being much adapted to the lit
tle girl hats is lace over straw. The

the diminutive ice cream tables in a

the possession of a charming new hat,
as much as her strawberry- dotted re
freshments. The little hat was a white
Milan, covered w-ith frilled Val.. and at
its left side a single moss rose nestled in
the frills.
' The simpler hats for children are of
the round, roll-brim style, in Milan and
Japanese, straw, and for the beach there
are extensive showings in the local
stores of cool duck and Panama, with
brims that may roll up or be turned
down to protect the face and eyes from
the sun.
One of the striking new color combi
nations is the King's blue (which is very
deep and brilliant, with rich deep red.
and this combination is frequently seen
on the elaborate new hats, worked out in
blue velvet with red roses.

Season to Be Bright One in Women's Garments, if Advices Prom Eastern
. and Foreign Fashion Centers Are Read Aright.
According to all the signs one may read
as one runs, and to all advices from
Eastern and foreign fashion centers, this
is to be a season of color, and the coiored
frock or suit "will have precedence over
the white in nearly all" models and mate
rials. The girl w.ho is planning her linen
frocks and separate blouses and skirts
should bear this In mind, as the colored
skirt, with blouse to match, or the entire
frock of color, are to be much smarter
than the white.
The feeling" for color is strong-..this
season, and is expressed in many ways;
it is to be noted in all themodish. gar
ments. Including- underwear, for some of
the finest showings in lingerie are
touched up a bit with pastel bands of
fine colored muslin, or silk.
Besides the linen one-piece frocks and
suits, ail in color, there will be the col
ored linen coat and skirt, with a waist of
sheer material to match. This one-tone
costume is the modish thing", according to
advance hints from centers where Spring
arrives earlier than in Oregon, and has
been enjoying marked popularity.
Among the interesting things being
shown by the Portland merchants Jusi
now in contrast to the snow-white laci
ness of the usual lingerie are the black
slips and corset covers, for wear with the
ever popular black evening gown, or day
time frocks of black,, or in patterns in
which black predominates.
With a low cut black evening own. a
black transparent gimp covering the
throat and shoulders, black .underwear is
almost an absolute necessity, since the
effect of a white shoulder strap, or a frill
o white embroidery snowing- through, en
tirely spoils the effect of the gown. To
fill this need, the daintiest of black silk
undervests. finished with frills of black
lace, and handsome, corset covers of silk
jersey cloth and similar weaves, ere be

popular than ever in th vntrs of fash
