The big hotels will not be at their
height of gaiety for several weeks

usually as soon as the private
schools and colleges close by which
time well-dressed pretty girls are
swarming in the erstwhile quiet
streets of little villages, where auto
mobiles disturb the long quiet that
has lasted since the summer" people
left last September. Wonderful, in
deed, to native eyes must be some
of the frocks and frills and furbelows
annually making their June entry into
dull little towns.
The summer girl this year Is simply
but entrancingly dressed, and her
pretty little morning frocks look easj'

of these frocks are really easy to
copy, but their very, simplicity calls

fection of cut and the styles are not
so easy of adaptation as they seem.
Frills . Everywhere.
For instance, the frocks with pleat
ed frills of organdie! Such frills must
be machine pleated to have the proper
crisp smartness, and they have to be
set on with hemstitching. At a Long
Island shore colony the other day
appeared a love of a little frock made
of apple green organdie with a rather
short gathered skirt, having a hem
at least ten inches deep and an elbow-
sleeved waist cut kimono style. At
the front and back of the skirt fell
long, rounded "aprons" edged all
around with pleated frills of the or
gandie, and similar frills trimmed the
fichu collar and elbow sleeve. A sasn
of narrow apple green gibbon was
ilea arouna tne waisi, now hhu eim
falling at the front in this year's
quaint, fashion. Another frock with
pleated frills was worn at Newport
by a pretty young matron who steped
out of her electric runabout on shop
ping bent one morning last week. The
frock was of white dotted Swiss with
light brown dots and was trimmed
with pleated organdie ruffles that
were.picot edged in brown and were
set on with brown hemstitching. A
sash of brown grosgrain ribbon was
tied In front. With cool-looking morn
ing costume went a big hat of light
brown straw . with a band of brown
Plain Dresses Good Style.
As Palm Beach foretold, back in
February, the plain linen morning
frock is the. acme of good style, for
midsummer wear. Linen is obtainable

ion, as well as housewives, have
pounced upon it as much as they
can get of the beautiful stuff.
Pale lavender. and pale Dlue linens.
made very simply and accompanied
by very smart hats, are evidently the
most exclusive thing for summer
morning wear, and these fresh, cool.
dainty linen costumes are set of f . to
advantage by very beautiful collars
and cuffs of sheer material, embroid
ered by hand. A frock of white linen,
made with long-waisted blouse at-,
tached to a .tucked skirtt has several
straps just below the normal waist
line and through these straps is
drawn a sash of wide black satin rib
bon, tied in one of the new up-and-down
bows at the back.
The long ends of the black sash
fall almost to the knee, one end di
rectly over the ther. and each end
finished with deep white wool fringe.
Few of the linen frocks are trimmed
with Dleated raffles. Ruffles are re
served for more airy costumes and
the linens are made in more tailored
effects. A good-looking linen suit
was observed on aboat starting from
New York for Portland, Me. and the
suit was headed for Bar Harbor, one
It was of very pale gray linen, with
straight, beautiful hanging skirt
and a straight, loose jacket in finger
tip length, held in slightly by a nar
row belt of gray suede. The coat had
long sleeves and mannish collar and
revers and its buttons were of gray
bone. Simple as could be but such
style and such linen that every wom
an turned around to look at it.
With the gray linen suit went a
rather small hat of black straw with
a floating black veil, a blouse of very
sheer, very pale yellow georgette, and
buttoned walking boots of black kid
with gray cloth tops.
Cheeked Ginghams Loom.
All the really smart gingham
dresses this year are in checked pat
tern. Only children, it seems, are
wearing plaid ginghams now. And
perhaps the smarest checks are brown
and white. Brown cneeked gmgnams
are so new that they have a distinct
ive effect and stand out among the
black-and-white, blue-and-whlte and
pink-and-white checks with a special
style of their own.
A tall girl at a Westchester country
club the other day wore a brown-and-
white checked gingham with a big
hat of cinnamon brown straw.
The brown hat had a trailing bunch
of blac -kgrapes and the brown-and-
white checked cloth had a necktie
of black ribbon. If was the simplest
of frocks, with a skirt tucked be
tween hem and hip and a loosely set
ting elbow-sleeved waist drawn into
a narrow belt of the material. But a
very wide collar and very deep cuffs

costume extremely good looking

Women wear either very simple or
very formal frocks at the summer re

now called a morning frock and may

fetching frock of pale green organdie
and its gay frill is matched by frills

turned-back collar that extends to the
waistline. Tiny square tabs, edging
this collar and turning back on the
pleated organdie frill, are embroid

chiffon with a border design in ma
hogany shade. This border has been
used on two pleated skirt flounces

wide, low-placed girdl is of plain

Simply as this young woman (267)
is dressed, she is very smart and up
to date. Her frock is of white linen,
on straight, youthful lines, and the
cuffs and collar are of white hand

sash of wide black satin ribbon, tied
in the new up-and-down bow; and

find that the hair dries quickly and

more abundant than it is, and so

Tray Covers Handy for

BREAKFAST tray covers are an im
portant item in the linen supply of
the large country house where break
fast is served to guests in their
rooms. Even the modest home should
boast a supply of dainty breakfast
tray covers for every now and then
breakfast has to be carried up to
somebody and a tray covered with a.
folded napkin -has not quite the touch.
Linen tray covers make attractive
summer needlework and are neither
difficult nor tedious to do. Select
white linen of substantial quality
and hand scallop the edge of the
cover, making the latter the right
size to fit an oval or oblong tray.
Lmbroidered nosegays of bright
flowers, done in the corners, make
the morning tray cover very attrac
tive. The flowers should be tiny, of
course, and the flowers well massed
in a spot no bigger than a twenty
five cent piece. Match your tray
cover to your breakfast china. With
white and green china a cover of
green linen embroidered in white
will be attractive. With flowered
English china a pale ecru tray cover
with corner medallions of filet may
be very smart. Such a cover should
always be immaculately fresh and
uncreased. Have the covers ironed
while quite damp with a very hot
iron and roll them over a mailing
tube instead of folding.
