Boxes and Cases of Tapestry, Silk
When the great ships from over tho
Ki-a unload their treasures at tliQ
wharves, feminine Interest is all a-flutter
for 11 first glimpse into the alur
Ink, mysterious boxes. And small
wonder that a woman loses her heart
over tho lovely things brought forth
from tho depths of the great cases,
for they are wonderfully dainty when
arrayed so attractively in tho win
dows and showcases of our smart
Among tho novelties Just over from
Put is is tho tapestry work bags,
Imxes and picture frames, and nil
manner of useful nnd pretty things,
of course they aro expensive who
tvt r taw a Paris novelty that was
not? But tho woman with clever lin
gers nnd a little spare tlino never
needs to be discouraged over these
prires, for rho knows that-for a sur
prisingly small sum fha can copy the
things displayed, with excellent re
sults. Good taste In choosing mate
rials and liRlitiU'ss of touch In sewing
re all that is necessary.
In tho sketch aro shown a number
of useful boxes which tho dainty wo
man loves to have about to hold her
little dress accessories. These little
trifles of dress may bo kept fresh and
new looking for a much longer time if
they are well cared for, and each hns
Its box or bag in which to be placed
when not in use.
Any shaped pasteboard box that one
wishes, a bit of pretty tapestry or cre
tonne, a piece of silk for lining, and
old gold galoon for binding are tho
only materials needed for the most at
tractive tapestry work. It does not
take long to cover a box, and those
who have only a little time In the
evening for faecy work will find It
SLEEVES OF ALL LENGTHS
No One Rule Has Been Laid Down
Concerning This Part of the
It is a happy fashion that allows
a woman to wear her eIccvo of any
length. This Is true this season. Evi
dently wo are not to have ono rule
which must not be broken.
Tho full puff to the elbow, finished
with a ruffle, seems to bo tho only
sleeve that Is not allowable. All other
kinds are permitted.
The long mousquetalre Is In fashion,
but It Is a trifle second class even in
afternoon frocks. It has been modi
fled to a wider shape that docs not
hug the arm fo closely, nnd has more
grace than the former plpestem.
Possibly the preferred sleeve for
evening is the one that Is almost
straight from shoulder to elbow, is of
transparent fabric nnd usually differ
ent from that used In the gown.
Tho modified lego'-mutton will be
highly in favor for cloth sleeves.
There Is a slight fullness at tho el
bow, but tho sleeve is cut In one
length from shoulder to wrist, and
not divided nt tho elbow. As yet
there is no evidence of tho huge puff
at the top attached to tho long, tight
The Black and White Gown.
As soon as dark colors came Into
fashion the conservative designers
went In heavily for all black with a
touch of white. There is no gainsay
ing the elegance of tho black gown,
unless It Is made of cheap materials
thnt do not take a good dye.
Black that Is really black Is worth
the buying. In a good material It
serves season after Benson. It never
gives the beholder a chance to re
member tho date of Its first season,
for It Is inconsplclous. Tho woman
who must be economical finds it her
safest choice. She knows that by
touching it up with different lace, a
bit of gold or silver net, a few yards
of velvet or satin ribbon, she can
brighten and change it
Women who find they must weight
down the edges of skirts, and especial
ly coats, will And the weighted tape,
which comes by the yard, a boon and
Those who object to tapo showing
even at tho skirt hem can place It in
the hem. In the coat It is put be
tween lining and outer material, as
tho ordinary weights are.
Use of Gold Lace.
Gauzy gold lace is a favorite com
bination in the evening gowns of di
aphanous fabrlcB for tho tiny sleeve
ind tucker, which tho smartest mod-
Is show. A b'nek liberty satin prin
cess gown, bo finished, Is ono of tho
cason's bet models.
Lined and Trimmed with Gold Galoon.
ino.st enjoyable results are so quick
To make any of the boxes, proruro
a pasteboard box of tho desired shape,
cut out pieces of tapestry to lit each
section, lieir.g careful to select the
prettiest parts of the goods, nnd baste
each on the box, near the edge. If
the pasteboard la heavy, then it will
be better to paste the goods on near
the edge, using n white, strong paste.
The lining is put en in the samo way.
Then the gold galoon is put on over
all the-edges us n finish, sewing down
on each edge w ith very small stitches.
All' covers are ovcrhnnded on after
tho galoon is applied.
The fancy shaped sewing box In tho
lower left hand corner is made of
pieces of pasteboard, cut out, the low
er edges smaller than tho upper, and
the tides are slanted. The sides are
held together with narrow slips of pa
per nnd nulled gum arable. The cov
er is simply a squnro of pasteboard,
tapestry covered. Tho veil or glovo
case In the upper right hand corner is
made of two boy covers.
In tho lower right band coiner Is a
llttlo jewel box, covered In tho same
way as tho others. Tho llttlo tray is
composed of a box cover with several
divisions mado by covering strips of
cardboard with the lining material
tho strips just fitting in tight enough
to hold in place.
A ribbon nnd necktie holder Is
sketched In tho upper left hnnd cor
ner. A collar box and a little divid
ed holder for side combs, shell orna
ments and hairpins, are also shotm.
All the boxes have perfumed pais un

They are attractive little boudoir
accessories, theso French trifles, and

Matting I. Effective.
When the floor Is in poor condition
and must be covered, If there are no
rugs for It entirely plain matting Is
not to bo despised. It wears better
than many of tho "fillings," that Bhow
soil as well as every particle of dust
When It becomes necessary to cleans,
the matting it should be dono with
