HANDY FOR THE TRAVELERS! WARDROBE NEEDS MUCH CRE
Probably Most Convenient Pin Cush

Into Common Use.
A pin cushion that lcnd3 itself to
the needs of the traveled is a com
bination affair of cushion and jewel
box. The leather framo is green, red
or drak blue, is octagonal lit shape,
with a heavily padded cushion top
covered with velvet.
This top fits so tightly into the
lower part that none but the initiated

box. This mat-OS it a safo hiding
place for trinkets.
An ingenious girl has copied one of
the combination cushions by using a
fancy candy box, six inches in dia
meter and two inches high. Sho pad
ded tho top with wool, covered it with
pink chiffon velvet the tone of tho
flowers In tho gaily stamped border
and finished the edge with a narrow
Instead of using tho bottom for

and one wldo tuck Is carried over tho

Begin With a New Hat.
"A new hat I must have," says tho
average woman each season, and a
new hat sho does have, even If sho
has to go without some of the neces
sities to get it. Now this may seem
foolish to bomo, but In reality It Is
very wise. With a becoming hat,
fresh and up-to-dato, even though it
Is accompanied by an old suit, provid
ed it Is neat and trim, a woman passes
as stylish and well dressed. Let her
appear, on the other hand, In a new
suit, with an old hat, dejected and
hopelessly out of fashion, ami she is
Immediately referred to as way be

woman who is wise In dress matters
begins each new beason with a new
hat. Woman'B Home Companion.
Good Parisian Idea.
Tho French are using flesh colored
tullo In combination with black gowns.
At a distance this has a startling ef
fect as of nn exaggerated decolletago,
but it 13 decidedly becoming, because
tho faintly flushed tullo Is much softer
against tho neck and arms than tho
white or cream tones.

off and thrown to tho floor, perhaps In
a damp state, or even hung up undried,
when next wanted for wear It will bo

if care is taken to shape It well, placo

Hats often suffer most. A hat
comes bright and now from the milli

a bed or chair when taken off and left
for all dust and dirt to ndhero to it.
After a month's wear it Is hardly fit to
be seen. Tho girl who keeps her now
hat for cleir days, brushes it careful
ly, arranges tho bowa or lloweis, then
puts It awny in a box or covers it with
paper, finds It a pretty hat as long as
sho requires it. ''A stitch in time
saves nine" is a very true saying re
