The second Is in grey mohair. The skirt is unite nhiin: tbe bodieo h.

USE FOR THE SEPARATE TUNIC.
Will Transform Old-Fashioned Frock
Into Something Smart.
Clever women have found out that a
separate tunic, made of another ma
terial than tho gown and draped over
It, is an excellent method of altering
an old-fashioned frock.
There are some skirts that are too
short to bo lifted up even for two
Inches on the bodice to give the em
pire efTect, and they are too much
out of stylo to wear as they are.
If the skirt and bodice are put tog-ether
by their linings and two or
three folds of self-colored material
neatly draped around the waistline In
order to make it invisible, the founda
tion work Is finished.
The tunic may be made of net,
chiffon cloth, bands of net and em
broidered satin, or all-over lace edged
w ith fur or gold galloons.
This is cut with a seam down mid
dle of back and neatly draped three
inches above the waistline, headed with
folds of the material or a piece of the
trimming used elsewhere.
This tunic drops from bust to
knees and gives tho exact line that It
needs this winter on smart frocks.
Coats of nearly every kind and for
any wear are somewhat longer this
year than formerly. There ure, of
course, some short jackets and sonic
extremely long coats accompanying
runabout suits, but the minimum av
erage length for the popular walking
coat Is 30 inches.
Right pretty are some of the little
silk coats in la Watteau, shown
among the recent Paris Importations.
They are often trimmed with hand
some laces or galloons ami sometimes
with rare embroideries.
Silk coats in the tone of the i.klrt
are more used than are cloth ones like
the skirt, especially in suits to be
worn for anything like dress occa
sions. These coats are usually loose
and made In odd styles, In Imitation
of 25 or more years ago.
Colors Must Be In Harmony.
No sudden or violent color handling
of showy colors. In any way whatso
ever, In suit materials, In millinery, or
in dress trimmings and plumes, is to
bo met with this season, says Vogue.
Perfect adaptation and harmony
reigns, which, of course, bespeaks ex
quisite taste In every direction. A
word about these new colors will fur
nish tho tight Idea of a distinct de
parture from the colors of last season.

KEEPING THE PIANO IN ORDER,
Music Lover Has Growing Plants In
Water In Drawing Room.
A matron who is fond of music and
owns a handsome grand piano says
she keeps it in tune much longer and
prevents it from drying out with the
intense heat of her city house by
growing plants in water in her draw
She raises Chinese lilies and hya
cinths in glass bowls and jars and us
ually has standing on the piano or
near it a big rose jar or a large glass
pitcher filled with a dozen or mon?
vines of tradescantia growing In wa
ter. This vine is better known as "wan
dering Jew," and thrives as well in
water as in soil. It comes in tho plain
gree n and variegated leaves, and Is a
charming addition to a room as well
as making the air more moist. The
vines root readily in water and need
comparatively little l!ht.
About once a week the plants are
carefully removed, the jar washed and
Illled with pure water. A small lump
of charcoal In the water will keep It
from getting Impure.
