RESOTTRCEFUIj designers of ready
made blouse bit upon many clever
trimming' notions which the woman
who sews at home would never think
of. The striped bine and white taffeta
Mouse Js trimmed most effectively wtth
blue and white striped taffeta of a
bolder pattern, the strips of crosswise
striping being; set under a corded
piping-. This blouse has one of the new
yokes which are extremely fashionable
now, many of the French blouse and
bodice models having: yokes of one sort
or another. . This blouse matches a blue
permo coat and skirt suit for Autumn
traveling wear.
Elaborate and dainty enough for
an appearance at the theater in the
evening should necessity demand
is this dainty costume blouse of lace
and embroidered chiffon. The chiffon is
In Copenhagen blue color and the lace is
creamy in tone. The vest of lace over
a tucked chiffon chemisette Is edged
with tiny blue glass beads and the blue
chiffon drapery over the shoulders has
embroideries of blue beads and pearls.
This blouse is a "costume" blouse. In.
tended for wear with a handsome after,
noon tailored coat and skirt costume
of blue velvet, worn with a plumed hat
and smart boots of patent leather with
buttoned suede tops.
Nothing In the blouse ' line Is as
useful as the dainty, overblouse
which may be slipped over a sim
ple frock or bodice to make it suitable
for a gala occasion. This overblouse Is
made of Venise lace motifs, dovetailed
with motifs of pintucked -net. and the
wide band thus achieved forms the
outer edge of the overblouse, the center
being filled in with tucked net. In front
the border bands cross In surplice fash
Ion over a little vest of the net with a
small bow of amber velvet and a row of
amber buttons. The overblouse, as
shown here, has been used to dress up
a trotabout frock of prune-colored
permo fabric a worsted and mohair
combination much liked for Winter In
door frocks.
FASTEN-IN-FRONT BLOUSES POSSESS
NEW CHARM IN VESTS AND PANELS
Considerable Contrast Is Found Between Custom and Tailored Clothes Shirts of Bridal White Satin an Anom
alyTouch of Amber Distinctive Fall Note Burnt Onion Popular Trimming.
EVERYBODY wondered a twelve
month or so ago how blouses fas
tening at the front could ever be
as charming as the button-ln-back mod
els which provided an unbroken ex
panse of front for the expression of
the designer's fancy. But now that the
fasten-ln-f ront blouse has become firm
ly established In favor, it is to be seen
that these models are more charming
than any of the old styles ever dreamed
of being, and all manner of gay vests,
panels, frills and button arrangements
take the place of the stereotyped com
binations of band embroidery and lace
inserts which usually decorated the
button-tn-back models.
There is as much difference between
the practical tailored blouse for every
day wear and the elaborate costume
blouse for formal occasions as there Is
between day and night. The "blouse
for formal occaeiona" seems a new and
somewhat extraordinary whim of fash
Ion, but in thia era of handsome tai
lored coat and skirt costumes made of
velvet and silken materials, the formal
blouse Is an essential Item.
These costume-blouses, as they' are
called are made of lace, net and chiffon
or of 'combinations of all three. It -Is
not at all unusual to see a lace blouse
with a vest of tucked net and a bolero
jacket of chiffon, crossing in-tabaover
the net vest and allowing the lace
blouse to show generously by Its open
cut. All these blouses are extremely
loose and graceful, as must be the case
when such thin, airy fabrics are used
one over the other; for anything like
a strained, fitted effect would entirely
spoil such a blouse. Some of the models
have thin linings of messallne or Chi
nese silk, made a little tighter than the
gracefully draped lace and chiffon, and
the lining may be boned a trifle a the
waistline if the figure la heavy. But
as a rule the blouse is soft and guilt
less of boning or stiffening at the
waistline and is held in place by the
skirt-belt or by a fitted girdle or sash
which, flnlshea the lower edge of the
blouse, the garment being donned over
and not under the skirt.

sash invariably falTs at the front of
the figure, in one or two short ends
placed a little to the left of the center
front. A new blouse modtil in one of
the shops last week showed this sash
end, made of a long strip of pleated
lace, falling not from the belt, but
from a point just above the belt, the
pleated lace sash-end being caught to
the lace blouse under a rhlnestone-set
buckle. Sometimes the sash is made
of the skirt material, in the case of a
lace or net blouse; but this shortens
the waist-line, an. effect not desirable
when a light blouse and darle skirt are
worn together. It is better to have the
sash and belt made of the blouse ma
terial, whenever possible, as this
lengthens the waist-line and makes the
figure appear more slender and youth
ful. The saah-ends seldom fall from
a bow, but from a small rosette or
cabuchon, or from a buckle or other
ornament, sometimes of metal and
sometimes of the sash material shirred
or pleated over "buckram.
Shirred Sleeves Are Transparent.

blouses have little coats of hemstitched
chiffon In color, the chiffon coat or
bolero opening over a vest of white
net or lace, across which is laid in
surpliced effect a second vest of chif
fon in contrasting color. For example,
a cream lace blouse, with mousque
talred sleeves, may have a bolero coat
sleeveless of hemstitched old blue
chiffon, opening over a chemisette of
tucked net crossed by Inner vest of
hemstitched saffron-pink chiffon. The
combinations of colors are exquisite,
and these dainty blouses often run up
to 130 or $35 in the elaborate models.
"Shirts" Have Robespierre Collars.
The Robespierre blouse is the thing
for wear with the tailored suit Just
now., and these blouses are exhibited
by the thousands In the shops at prices
varying from $5 to $15. They are made
of satin, of tunsUk, of orepe-de-chine
and of voile; but the white satin mod
els seem to be the favorites.. Such
blouses - button- down the front with
pearl or glass buttons, and In' all cases
the sleeves are long, and the . collar
a picturesque Robespierre affair, set
on a- high neckband at the back and
opening in a deep V at the front. Some
times the blouse is perfectly plain in
"shirt" style, frills of pleated net or
lace adding grace and- ornamentation
at the front; sometimes the cut is
more fanciful, a deep yoke' corded at
the edge overlapping a fuller lower
portion, and the front of-the blouse
having a double line of jeweled but
tons, attached in pairs by cord loops
and passing through a double line of
buttonholes.
Corded edges are the grand chic on
these tailored silk and satin "shirts"
and even the edges of the sleeves are
finished with tiny corded piping. Arm
holes are conspicnously corded, and
when there Is a- yoke its edge Is cord
ed and piped. The only thing that Is
never corded at the edge is the Robes
pierre collar. This must be very soft
and floppy in effect and should turn
back with graceful .limpness on" the
shoulders, both sides of the collar be
ing made of the silk or satin material.
Ratine is a prime favorite with the
i.
blouse builders this autumn. Ratine
collars decorate silk -blouses for after
noon wear, and there are whole blouses
of ratine, some of them showing the
new figured ratine materials, with con
trasting color. For example, tan ratine
may have arabesque of old blue, the
Robespierre collar being of old blue
satin and the smart little neckbow of
black velvet; or a blue ratine waist
with scarlet figures may have a collar
of white ratine and a bow of red vel
vet. Unless one is very slender, the
blouse of taffeta will be a better choice
than the one of ratine, and there is no
doubt about the prettlness of the new
taffeta blouses. They come in striped
and plalded taffetas with silk pipings
and pleated frills In contrasting colors,
the color scheme, of course, being se
lected to match the skirt. A charming
taffeta blouse' accompanies a honey
moon traveling suit of navy blue per
mo fabric intended for wear in the
South. The blouse Is made of plaid
blue and white taffeta and has pipings
and a big, soft Robespierre collar of
plain blue taffeta, the blue collar being
stitched In white. Over this collar
turns a smaller collar of sheer white
eyelet embroidery, and In the V-shaped
front opening of the blouse is a uttie
vest, also of the eyelet embroidery, with
blue glass buttons set close together.
Color Faa Takes.
Never did a color fad "take hold"
with more emphatic grip than this
burnt onion color fad of the present
Fall season. One comes across the
sunny, orange-yellow tone everywhere.
Very little of the strong color Is used
Just a touch .of It in collar, neckbdw,
pipings or buttons; but wherever it Is
used. It gives tone and modernness to
the whole costume. Many of the new
blouses of white satin or of lace have
buttons of amber, which is the shade
that In fabrics goes by the burnt onion
name. A smart velvet neckbow will re
peat the color touch of the yellowish
buttons and give brightness and mod
ishneas to the whole blouse.
On black blouses for dressy wear the
burnt onion toucn is especially effective.
and somehow or other women who
would never dream ordinarily of wear
ing such a strong and trying Bhade as
orange are wearing burnt onion this
Autumn and looking very smart In it.
A black chiffon costume blouse bright
ened by burnt onion was noted the
other day at the Waldorf when the coat
of a black charmeyse suit was removed
at afternoon tea hour. The blouse was
not all black, the black chiffon being
mounted over white satin or silk and
the mousquetalre chiffon sleeves being
transparent. A little bolero jacket of
black chantllly lace crossed the tucked
chiffon at back and front, and within
the V forved by the , jacket was a
crossed vest of burnt onion chiffon fas
tening with Jet buttons over black lace-
At the neck was a deep Robespierre col
lar of black satin and turning over it a
verv narrow collar of burnt onion vel
vet completed the color touch. The small
toque of black velvet had an amber
plume curling over the hair' at the left
side and smart boots of patent leather
with buttoned tops of dull kid com
pleted an immensely chlo afternoon cos
tume. .
Fealurt s cf Misses Dressy
Frocks
THE young girl Is not to be denied
the bewitching silliness of the
panler. Charming styles for girls
as young as 10 show scant puffs put
on so that the fall will be longer at the
back than front and going all round the
skimp skirt, which, by the way. is nar
row in proportion to the look of becom
tngness. The frock is In one-piece style.
with belt high, sleeves long and narrow,
the bodice fitting flatly over the bust,
and sometimes adorned wtth the sharply-pointed
revers of Revolutionary
times. Such dresses, of course, must
be made of limply falling materials,
such as loulslne and veiling.
For girls of 18 and over, the panler
takes many ramifications. One dress In
night-blue" silk has delicious little hip
puffs opening over a glimpse of plaited
white lace as if this were the petticoat
A Robespierre collar goes with this
model, one of those high, close stocks
which look so well on" slim young
throats and so ridiculous on fat old
ones, and a three-cornered felt hat In
the same shade of blue with white lace
rosettes, was bought for the costume.
The mothers who regard the real
panler a little too eccentric for their
means, or two coquettish for daughters,
will have no difficulty in finding de
lightful little frocks with skirts
trimmed to simulate it in a very simple
and ohlldlsh way. One very smart frock
seen recently, of pink and white striped
relllng over a white silk slip, was made
full and gathered over a cord at an
overskirt line, the bottom of the dress
falling like a limp flounce. Frills of
lace or silk, narrow and scant, are often
put on party frocks to simulate a tunic,
the line running up in a V at the front.
but often In this case the skirt is cut
In two pieces, as the top part must .be
fuller than the bottom. To hold up the
top with a slightly baggy suggestion
there Is a skirt lining of very thin silk
or lawn to the knee.
The kimono model is still much used
for the waist of the misses' party dress,
as this permits the simple lines and the
round neck and short sleeves so becom
ing to youth; but the longer peplum tail
Is shelved in favor of the narrowest
frill, which goes about the high waist
line in a very pretty manner.
Bordered fabrics are used often in a
very. quaint way on girlish frocks of a
"partyfled" nature, such as would be
worn for any day festivity of a social
nature or for Informal dances. One such
dress displayed the border gathered as
a flounce, put on at the bottom of the
skirt and then running up into a tunic
line across the front, ending somewhat
above the left knee at last under a
rosette. With this arrangement a
flounce of the bordering Is likewise
used on the bodice, surrounding the
gulmpe in a square or pointed line, or
else bordering fronts crossed surplice
fashion.
A touch of plaid is considered very
smart on a fine day dress, but little is
used, for there Is great danger of a
patchy look with this species of gar
nish. On a French dress of gray veil
ing was seen the manner in which the
French use the Scotch note to the best
advantage. Around the high waist of
the dress was put a folded sash of
ribbon in magnificent blues, a black
line adding to Us plaid richness, this
falling at the left front in two tabs,
cut in a deep scallop and 'plaited. Ex
cept tor a wee bow at the low neck
line of the filmy lace gulmpe, there
was not another bit of the plaid on the
dress.
The plaid fabrics used for young girls
are always striking in color and design,
and some preference is given to those
in rich reds. MARY DEAN.

Clothing and dress are as speech and
language. The one expression that
which Is evolved from within; the
other is of the tongue only. The two
words, "speech" and "language," are
formed from two meanings.
Clothing should speak something; It
should have the thres-. qualities of
speech simplicity, sincerity, fitness to
person and occasion. Singleness, direct
ness, are of grace and truth; complex
ity Is confusion and more or less of
falsehood. Apply the principles to gar

which in turn breeds ugly blotches,

Mrs. O.: You can make your eye
brows grow thick an glossy by apply
ing pyroxin with finger-end. For stub
bv eyelashes apply pyroxin with thumb
ahd forefinger. This makes them grow
long and curly. Be careful, however,
and don't get pyroxin where no hair
is wanted.
A. B. C: Bleaching the hair will
not remove it. Make a thick paste
with powdered delatone and water,
spread on hairs not wanted, then after
two or three minutes rub off, wash the
skin and the hairs are gone. This
simple treatment will banish the. most
stubborn growth and does not injure
even a sensitive skin.
G. E. A.: It may be all right to use
dry shampoo powder where you are
very careful to brush out all of the
powder; otherwise it will clog up the
pores In the scalp and cause dandruff,
the very thing you should avoid. To
keep your hair looking bright anil
healthy and make It stay In curl, you
must not use a shampoo that contains
"free" alkali, as soaps and most sham
poos do. Dissolve a teasponoful of
canthrox In a cup of hot water and
you have a shampoo that can't be ex
celled. It will remove all excess oil
and dirt, and leave your scalp free
from irritation. This shampoo dries
quickly without -causing streaky, faded
patches In the hair. It will make your
hair soft and fluffy, so It will stay up
and look nice without the use .of a hair
net or veil.
Dorris: If. you wish to make a
greaseless complexion cream-jelly that
will quicklv clear your complexion of
freckles, tan and sunburn without the
necessity of several months' treatment,
you can easily prepare it at home by
mixing together an ounce of almozoin,
two teasponfulg glycerine and one-half
pint cold water; stir briskly and let
stand over night. Where applied fre
quently you will find this an excellent
cream for removing wrinkles, black
heads, freckles, roughness and other

One Cause of Bad
Complexion the Cure
(From Family Pbyalclaa.)
"Look at a section of skin nndef th
microscope and you will readily under
stand why cosmetics generally injurs
the complexion," says Dr. H. Robert
.Mackenzie. "The skin, smooth as it
looks to the naked eye, under the glass
exhibits a lacework of tiny holes,
mouths of myriads of little glands. To
keep the skin healthy these holes must
be unobstructed, that the perspiration
and natural oil can have free outlet.
Should the glands be blocked up with
Irritating, gritty particles, a common
result of using powders and creams.
Nature retaliates by causing sallow
ness, roughness, blotches or pimples.
"As a substitute for all cosmetics I
recommend ordinary meroollzed wax.
It not only does what the various face
preparations are supposed to accom
plish, but its peculiar absorbent action
frees the pores from the dally accumu
lation of Impurities, also absorbing the
devitalized particles of surface skin.
This produces a natural, healthy,
youthful complexion. One ounce of
this wax, to be had at any drug store,
usually suffices to rejuvenate the
poorest complexion. It is put on night
ly like cold cream and washed off
mornings." Adv.

E. B. S.: Although gray hair is some
times caused by worry. It Is generally
due to a diseased scalp as Indicated by
such symptoms as the dandruff, Itch
ing scalp and brittle, falling hair of
which you speak. To restore your scalp
to a healthy condition, first keep ft
clean by shampolng every ten days or
two weeks with canthrox, then mas
sage the scalp, using a good quinine
hair tonic. You can prepare the tonlo
yourself by adillng one ounce of quln
zoln to & half pint of alcohol (not
whiskey) and a half pint of cold water.
This is much better than most ready
prepared hair tonics, as it contains
nothing to make the hair coarse, sticky
or "stringy." It will remove the dan
druff ana stop your hair from com
ing out. You will find it an ideal
dressing for the hair and very refresh
ing to an itching scalp.
B. M. D.: Do not let your superflu
ous flesh worry you. Even though you
have spent many dollars trying dif
ferent so-called '"flesh-reducers" with
out any of them doing a bit of good, I
want you to try this one. I have many
friends who tell me It did wonders for
them. Get four ounces of parnotis
from any drug store, dissolve It in 1 V
pints hot water and take a tablespoon
ful a few minutes before each meal.
It is harmless and will cut down your
fat rapidly withoat necessity for diet
ing or strenuous exercising.
Mary V.: By devoting Just a little
time each day to the care of your
complexion, you can ward off the
marks of approaching age and have
the same attractive, youthful-looking
features as your younger friends. Use
a good, greaseless complexion cream
(see answer to Dorris), and Instead of
clogging up the pores of your skin
with face powder get a dependable lo
tion and use it exclusively. You can
make such a lotion by buying four
ounces of spurmax at your druggist's
and dissolving it in one-half pint witch
hazel or hot water; then add two tea
spoonfuls glycerine' and when cold ap
ply freely to your fuce, neck and arms.
This lotion Is Inexpensive and un
equaled as a skin beautifler. It does
not rub off or show like face powder,
and you will find It excellent for re
moving that shiny, muddy look from
your skin. I find it good for removing
and preventing freckles, skin pimples
and any unnatural skin roughness.
B. W.: If my eyes continually had
that tired, overworked feeling you say
