Tho drosses naturally vary in stylo,
partly with tin) mother's taste, nnd part
ly with tho ago of llio child, mid nlso
tho iippeurnnco of tho llttlo ono. Some
look lovely In tho quaint llttlo Green
nwuy costumes, nnd others In tho pict
ure dresses copied from old portraits.
Others again require ti stylo moro pecu
liarly adapted to themsolvcs, nnd tho
tasteful mother will manage generally
to llml out what best suits her darling.
Dark woolen mnterinls and shepherd's
plaids us well ns silk or surnh nro most
commonly seen this spring for little girls,
nnd light colored veilings nnd ciishmores
ns well ns India silk nro mado up for
young girls in their "teens" for party or
evening dresses. A pretty dress for n
girl from 8 to in can bo mndo after n
model dross which I saw in n largo houso.
It wus of shepherd checks in grny, ma
roon nud white nnd was trimmed with
mignonette green velvet. Another dain
ty llttlo gown which Is illustrated here
is of tan colored tricot with u guiinpu,
belt nnd culls of ruby velvet. Tho wnist
Is shirred so that tho cdgoBtands upward
llko n narrow ruflle, nnd It has n volvct
belt, and thrco tucks in tho skirt for
solo trliijtc'ng, but it makes n becoming
nnd suitable llttlo gown. Many Indies find
that tho best back breadths of their own
worn out dresses can bo utilized in mak
ing up such a llttlo gown, only requiring
live-eighths of n yard of velvet to iniiko
a pretty llttlo dress. It would necdnbout
two yards and n half of material forty
four inches wldo to tuako this, and if
there wns not quite enough dress mate
rial the sleeves also could bo of velvet.
For school dresses, merino, flannel,
challls and many other of tho moro or
dinary woolen goods can bo used, nnd nil
that is then required Is a fair stock of
pretty white aprons, and the plainer tho
dresses nro mado tho moro satisfactory
they will prove.
Cloaks are mado of many materials,
but tho most fashionable aro those of
clan plaids in light chovlot, and thoy can
bo modeled after tltu ono in tho picture.
To wear with these nothing is so suita
ble na ti Tarn o' Shunter cap or n Scotch
cap with ft hc'on's plumo. Both kinds
aro very ensy to innko.
For n young gir) from 10 to 10 thore
can bo no prettier or moro suitable gown
than tho pretty pearl gray mohair, with
its simple lines mid its cardinal belt cuffs
and plastron. This sumo design can be
mado in whlto veiling or any other ma
terial suited to the ngo of the wearer. In
wash goods there nro zephyr ginghams
that aro cortainly ns pretty as silk.

Baraethlnic That ! by Many lUtnnlml mi
11 Noeesaary Kvll.
By a great many oopto plumbing work Is
regardod nn a noeomary evil. As to Its being
neotwuiry for comfortable and economical
living there can bo no doubt. As to Its being
an ovll, that depends. Tlicro Is no reason
why all plumbing work should not bo safe
from a MirilUry standpoint. Tlicro Is no rea
son why there should bo vexatious plumbing
bills to disturb ono's ponca of mind and tlo
ploto his pockethoolc llumblng work may
bo laid out mid oxocuted in a way to ba en
tirely safo nnd economical of maintenance.
Thoro aro a fow principle which one noeds
to consider In ordor to bring nlxmt U10 re
sult nhovo outlined. All plumbing work Is
emontlnlly n system of wntor supply drainage
from tho houso, mid tho attachments to the
drains aro tho llxturus, such as kitchon sinks,
water clonitii, wash stands, bath tulw and
laundry UiIm. All of thom fixtures have con
nection with publla
or privnto water
supply or both.
Tho drainage from
tho fixtures nud
therewith Is the
part of U10 plumb
ing work requiring
tho most skilled at
tention. Tho main
drain outsldo of tho
houso lias direct
connection with n
vault or sewer. It
la ImrwrtAiit that
b Trur. y)0 injiiiu connec
tion with this drain bo such ns will provont
tho pasiutgo of tho contaminated air of the
sewer or vault into the houto. This Is done
In two ways. First, tho fixtures havo a
trapjiod or wnter scalod connection with the
drain. Second, tho air in tho drain has nu
exit nbovo tho top of tho houso. This Is dono
by continuing tho drain nbovo tho roof. This
Is what U known as drain ventilation. All
drains with nil fixtures should bo ventilated
in this way
The "8" trap referred to gota Its namo
from its form, which U illustrated by tho
sketch. The drain wajor comes down through
tho trap from alxivo Into tho lower art of
tho bond mid thou upwards nnd again down
wnrds nud Into tho drain. Thus thoro Is n
certain amount of wnter always in this trap.
Thli water is called the heal. Tho depth of
tho seal Is iloMndeiit UKu tho depth of tho
bend In tho trap. It will lie soon that tho air
would havo to pans through tho water to got
into tho Iioumi.
Thero nro many conditions under which tho
trap would fall to act, Tho water may bo
siphoned out, mny ovnpornto, or It may Iw
coino contaminated from long connection
with tho air in tho drain. Tho ventilation of
the drain and tho ventilation of tho trap re
duce tills risk to n minimum. Thero aro
hundreds of different kinds of traps, but thoy
urn nil constructed oil tho same principle.
Thoy nro nil largely dojietideiit upon the wnter
seal for protection to tho Inside of tho houso.
Abundant Hushing Is highly Important as n
precautionary measure. Flushing means a
dlschnrgo of largo quantities of water through
tho traps mid drains. Tho frequent uso of
plumbing apparatus contributes to Its safety
from 11 bimltary suuidixilut.
Sketch No. 'J Is of a water clovt of n wash
out pattern. There
nro hundred!) of
makes of wntor
iu this way. Tho
body of tho closet
Is of porcelnlu. Tho
uppor part is a
largo bowl, having
nn "S" trap con
nection with tho
soil pipe, Tho seat
is of wood and
thoro is a flushing
tank nlwvo. This
has n i Inch con
nection with tho
bowl. When tho
cloMit Is used tho
chain handle. Is
pullod nnd tho bowl
Is flushed with a1
largo quantity of
wnter. This Is the
simplest and best
typo of water closet now in uso. It will Iwno
tlwd that tho closat propor Is entirely ox
posed to viow.
Sketch No. !1 shows n modern wnshstnnd.
It Is carried on brackets mado of marblo or
Iron, tho top and back nro marblo, and tho
bowl of tKircolnlu ware Ithosastaudlngover-
flow at tho Iwck and Insidoot tho bowl, this
bowl having a straight back rather than n
truo semi-spherical form, as is common. Tho
ordinary waste, which is In tho back of the
bowl, becomes foul from rancid soap which
accumulates therein from tlmo to tlmo. Tho
standing overflow mentioned hero can bo
lifted out at any time nud washed. It also
acts as a waste when one desires to drain tho
water from tho bowL By merely turning
the little knob at the top an opening Is
formed. An objection to the plug nnd chain
waste Is that tho chain gets foul and is never
perfectly clean. After It has been used once
It is foul for uso next time. It will bo ob
served that in this instance the entire uqder
part of the washitand Is left opoiw "
The bath tub shown In sketch No. 4 Is of
Iron, porcelain lined. They are mado of
pUnlshed copper, solid porcelain and cast
Iron unpointed. The copper tub is the cheap
est; tho porcelain tho best. Tho iron, porce
lain lined, Is a very agreeablo compromiso.
It bus the standing overflow, same as that
described for washstands, and this tub is not
cased at sides or ends any more than Is tho
waslistand and water closet described.
Tho kitchen sinks havo been described be
fore,, The laundry fittings will bo considered
at some other time, Louis II, Qiubom.
Co ogno sots consist of three largo cut glass
