One of the Many Taffeta Gowns for Midsummer
PRESIDENT ANNOUNCES RECESS

Loomls and Allen Both Well Known
Bryan Men Selected Flynn
and McCune Chosen.
This dress of royal blue taffeta Is
one of the best and most attractive
that have appeared among a groat
number of models employing this silk.
It Is of that soft variety called chiffon
taffeta, and Is the coolest and crisp
est of gowns for midsummer, outside
the world of wash fabrics.
The skirt has a plain-fitted yoke ex
tending to the hips, to which the body
is sewed. This latter Is made of the
silk laid in close, single box plaits and
is finished with a two and one-half
inch hem at the bottom. Three rows
of stitching, set close together, and
parallel to each other, sow the plaits
down at the top to the yoke and make
a neat finish. The hem is also ma
The coat is cut with a -plain yoke
also. The lower edge of the yoko is
cut in shallow curves with an incon
spicuous point at each side on tho
bust. The point reappears in the cen
ter of tho back. Reversing tho order
of things in tho skirt, tho yoko over
laps tho plaits in the Jackat and but
two rows of stitching are used in join
ing it to tho body. A rolling collar
and turned-back cuffs, as plain as can
be, take care of tho finishing of neck
and sleeves. A plain bolt made over
a crinolino foundation, three inches
wide, Is tacked to tho jacket a littlo
below the normal waist line. It is or
Attractive Hats That
Not much that Is now may bo said
about the hats for littlo girls, since
mothers have been almost of one mind
In selecting bonnot-liko shapes for tho
fair littlo faces of their daughters. Uut
hero Is something new in a soft hat of
ribbon, and also a remodeled hat with
braid brim and laco crown, which the
homo milliner will enjoy making for
ber own or for some other small lady.
The first hat is made of satin ribbon,
m a light color, about four incheB in
width. Hardly two yards of It are
aeeded, a littlo over a yard for ono
length and about three-quarters for tho
second for a child of live to six years.
Tho longer length of ribbon is to bo
shirred over a cord on ono edgo and
gathered on tho other. Tho shorter
length Is gathered cn ono edgo and
lolned to tho gathered edge of the
longer ribbon by a piping covered with
a narrow bias band of satin or with a
narrow ribbon. Tho remaining edgo
Is to bo gathered up with threo shirred
pintucks in a group near it. Tho gath
ering thread at tho edgo is drawn up
to form the top of tho cap.
Ready-made ruchlng"ln a double fold
and a plaited frill of narrow laco are
sowed In about the face. Tiny roses of
chiffon, or ribbon, or little millinery
flowers are sot about tho edgo and tho
hat Is finished ready for lining. Tho
lining is to bo cut from thin silk, or
mull, matching tho ribbon. It is made
namented with three ball buttons at
tho front. They are forms covered
with tho silk, and two of them are
used on the cuffs In the manner shown
In tho picture. White ball buttons of
composition aro effectively used on
gowns of blue or black taffeta and
might bo substituted for those that aro
silk-covered, to add snap to this trim
The neck is much Improved by a
collar of whito poplin, or one of organ
die, which rolls over tho coat collar
and fulfills its mission of placing whito
near the throat and face.
A hat of malines and velvet, with
tin flowers and small feather
cockade at tho front, and a purse of
'dark blue leather, banded wuu wmio,
aro accessories that add tono to a
dress that Is distinguished by very
niottPF iipslcnlnc. It seems very sim
ple but tho best of talent is required
to achieve simplicity and distinction
at the same time.
Corlse, turquoise aud violet are
shades which are relieving the somber
ness of many gowns, and on so many
of tho evening dresses for young people
tho garlands of small flowers make a
graceful finish either on flounces or
Mamma Can Make
In two pieces a circle at the center
and a straight band hemmed on ono
edgo and gathered into tho circle ou
The hat with braid brim has a small
crown made of a circular piece of laco
gathered about tho edgo and sewed to
it A frill of lace, not quito so wldo
as tho brim, Is sewed to tho base of
tho crown and falls over tho brim. Fi
nally a collar is made by covering a
strip of crinoline with silk in a light
color, and covering this again with a
band of laco. This Is set on tho brim
over tho crown and tacked down.
Small satin covered button molds aro
sowed about tho crown at Intervals
and a little bow, with hanging end, is
mado of narrow satin ribbon and set
on to tho brim at each side.
Chooso soft thin ribbons of high lus
ter for children's millinery and vary
tho width nccordlng to tho size of tho
little ono's head.
Water Lily Hats.
Luclle, tho dressmaker, says that
water lilies aro coming Into fashion
as a trimming for white hatH, which
aro going to be so much favored this
summer. And certainly thoy have this
in their favor that they glvo an im
pression of coolness, more especially
if they bo worn with a dress which
combines white and leaf green.
