THE evening gown
that is made with
skirt of Batin and
bodice of lace is ex
ceedingly smart. This
one gives tho drooping
effect over the shoul
ders and the breadth
over the hips that'
make two of the most
important features of
tho season. In this
case, the skirt is mado
of charmcuse satin in
a real golden yellow
while the bodice is
made of cream colored
lace, but one can uti
lize such a dealgn ns
this one In many dif
ferent ways. In place
of the 'lace could be
used chiffon or net or
any thin material of
the sort and some of
the newest and hand
somest gowns are
made of charmeuse,
crepe or taffeta with
the bodice portion of
flowered chiffon, the
design reproducing the
color of the skirt in
some one detail at
leant. Again the skirt
can be nuide without
the train and the
guluipo portion of (he
blouse made with high
neck, so converting the
gown into one suited
to afternoon occasions.
Treated in this way, It
would be pretty made
with skirt of char
mouse or taffeta, the
draped portion of the
blouse of flowered
crepe or chiffon and
the guimpo of plain
not. For the all-white
gown, chanueuso or
taffeta could be used
for tho nklrt, lace or
net for the bodice with
tho girdle of s o m a
really brilliant culored
silk to give . the nolo
of color that is all-Important
Just now. The
skirt is in u de in two
pieces only wlih the
edges ovcrlupped at
front and back.
For the medium size
the blouse will require
1 M yards of material
36 Inches wide with
2 'A yards of all-over
lace 18 Inches wide for
tho drapery, 1 ',4 yards
of lnee 6 Inches wide
for tho pepl'im, of

The author of the bulletin, In her

compact kitchen saves many steps
and much useless lnbor In the prep
aration of food. This, however, ia
in homes where the kitchen is mere

a general purpose room whore meals

gathers to enjoy the warmth of tho
stove. Even where a largo kitchen
is needed for such purposes, how

Tho Old limcaii.
Many housekeepers have stowed
away an old-fashioned bureau. This
is what I did with mine. I ud- .
screwed the cumbersome top and
had the bureau moved to my sew-
lngroom. The large lower drawer
I used in place of a scrapbag and
to hold new material. All pieces of
mete rial left over I roll up and tie,
placing them In this drawer. Wben
I am looking for them it is not nec
essary to turn out the whole collec
tion. I see It as soon as I open
the drawer. The other large drawer
I keep for unfinished work. When
I am sowing I. place the work In
here out of tis way. Ironing-day
the things needing a Btltch are Iaiil
in here so that when I can Bnateh
a moment everything Is in readiness.
Tho two small drawers hold scissors,
thread, button-boxes tape, and all
sewing utensllr. A large cushion on
the top of the bureau and a pin tray,
complete the outfit. Contributor.
Taper PaUm.
As is well known, a paper pat
tern for a dress consists of many
pieces: the waist pattern proper,
the pieces for the sleeves, the gir
dle, tho skirt portions, etc. It fre
quently happens that only certain
of these pieces are used; when a
sleeve Is to be made over or a waist
Is to be made. It Is therefore plain
that much time Is wasted in hunt
ing over the many pieces of the pat
torn to find the particular piece de
sired. Accordingly whenever I buy
a paper pattern I separate the vari
ous pieces, etc., fold them carefully
and slip them in long envelopes. I
label these envelopes properly and
tie them together, and when I want
a certain piece of the pattorn it ia
but the work of a moment to get
it. Contributor.
For Tired Feet.
In cao any one has sore feet,
and has no loose shoes at hand,
tako a pair of Bocks and fold to)
to toe, turn right Bide out onto the
Toot double. You then have an eaay
pair of moccasins at little expense,
made, however, to secure light from
two directions and cross ventilation.
For this purpose, the kitchen isnould
be located either In a corner of lb
houne or In a narrow part where
there can be windows on opposlt
sides. It Is well, also, to locate tho)
'kitchen bo that clouds of dust may
not bo blown In from the road, and
It is of even greater importance that
the kllchon be no located with refer
ence to barns and other outbuildings
thnt the prevailing winds will not
bring unpleasnnt odorB or flics from
In many farm bouses a very large
kitchen is provided, because it must
handle tho unusual cooking for
harvest hands. The writer polnta
out that it will be better to provide
a temporary shed or a kitchen o
tho porch, with oil Btoves or othef
cooking devices, to handle this un
usual rush and thus allow the
house keeper 1 to have n smaller
kitchen during tlio rest of the year.
The sUo of the kitchen, unions a
large pantry or a storeroom Is pro
vided, lM alto governed somewhat
by the amount of supplies which
must be stored. In tho case of a
farm distant from town, supplies
necosBarlly must bo bought In bulk
and need sufficient Itorago space.
In such cases, It is sometimes wis
to provide an extra pantry or stor
age room. In arranging the pantry,
however, especially if It be between
the kitchen and dining room, care
should bo used not to make It toe
largo, as a long passageway bo
twovn these two rooms adda neces
sarily to the labor of the wouiaa.
