CURRENT READING FOR DAMES
Some Motet At the ModM A Rainy
Weather Costume Ijiitlei' Ten Gown
rUlit Wool nnd Velvet Untlrtynesi
In Women Inexcusable.
OW the now woman
will revel lnthonow
comfort set forth
by some far-neelng
designer of wo
man's toggery! It
was a man who
thought of It, too.
Almost every sort
and species of wo
man will gladly ac
cept this rainy day dress aB beyond re
proach, especially as the long outslda
cloak covers everything completely,
and no ono need know but what one has
on a dress skirt of tho usual length.
This abbreviated skirt Is of rubber,
mado flaring enough at tho bottom to
keep the cloak out JtiBt as though ft
dress wero worn, and fastened at tho
waist under a belt of leather. There
ore legglns of rubber, reaching half
way up tho limbs and caught at tho
BldeB by "supporters," Just as tho stock
ings arc, They lit smoothly over tho
foot and nnklo and button at tho side
with small buttons, easy to manipulate.
With this skirt a blouse of any sort
may bo worn.
A rain cloak of cravenettc tho usual
length Is worn with this rig, and when
rubbers and a soft felt hat in tho Eng
lish shape 13 donned milady Is ready to
battlo with tho fiercest elements and to
successfully rout that dire enemy, mud.
The rubber garments may bo washed
off directly one reaches home and so bo
kept freBh and sweet.
Ladles' Ten Downs.
Fawn-colored cashmere and golden
brown velvet arc here charmingly com
bined with a handsome plain front of
palo yellow satin, having velvet figures
appllqued on with rich, multi-colored
Bilk embroidery In Roman design. Tho
gown is of good length, with short train
that can bo cut oft at round length, If
so preferred. Tho back, shaped in
prlnccsse style, fits tho figure smoothly
to the waist-line, gradually expanding
In godet-liko fullness to its lower edge.
Lining fronts, fitted by slnglo bust
darts, under-arm gores, closo in confer,
over which the fullness Is disposed in
plaits at the top to fall gracefully in
classic folds from under the broad col
lar on each aldo of tho smooth front. A
smooth, velvet standing collar finishes
tho neck, that closes with the front at
tho left Bide. Rosettes of yellow satin
arc placed on each side of tho collar.
Tho broad sailor collar of brown velvet
is stiffened with an interlining and
It cd with tho yellow satin, or this
portion can be omitted if a less dressy
effect is desired. Tho wide Paquin
sleeves are shaped in two sections,
gathered on tho upper and lower edges,
and completed with pretty, ' round,
Bhort flaring cuffs at the wrists.
Tho gown can be stylishly made up
In crepon, silk brocade, plain or fancy
woolen fabrics, an opportunity of hand
Eomo and effective combinations and
rich, tasteful decoration being afforded
by the mode.

It Is one of the most hackneyed of
expressions that "flno feathers mnko
fine birds." Ouc damea and demoi
selles ha'vo striven with allvthelr might
lo outdo their feathered friends In out
side npparel, and with not indifferent
success, as a stroll up and down tho
streets of our great cities on n bright
afternoon would conclusively prove.
If they would go a step farther and
emulate tho samo creatures in another
point, the results would bo favorable
to tho peace of mind and hca"t of tho
dear creatures and bring more tranquil
ity to the domestic fireside. Instead
of this, they revorso tho conditions, and
in placo of the softest, finest and most
delicate materials next to the body,
thoy possess themselves of n hetero
geneous mnss of cheap garments, of
coarse fabric and sloppy workmanship,
nnd Bavo the down of toilet Tor tho out
side, says tho New York Ledger. Even
the gooso has sense enough to protest
against being deprived of the flno un
derwear with which nature has pro
vided her, but her sister geese of tho
human family not only make no protest,
but actually from choice select an out
fit at which any well-regulated feath
ered gosling would quack a loud de
fiance. It might bo Interesting to
trace not a few domestic infelicities nnd
not a few disrupted households to a
systematic disregard for tho exnmplo
of tho web-footed model above men
tioned. There are men so Ultra fastid
ious that they cannot tolerato untidi
ness even in their wives, nnd the under
wear of somo well-to-do women is of it
self sufficient to drlvo a man of deli
cate sonslbllltles from his domestic
sanctuary. People of sense cannot and
will not respect a woman whose under
wear Is untidy or shabby when oho can
havo better. Her claim to respect is
frail, Indeed, If sho puts a soventy-flvo-dollar
dress over fifty-cent undergar
ments. Personal tidiness is too apt to
be neglected in tho hurry and undis
ciplined worry of the averago house
hold. Conveniences and privacy, too.oro
lacking in many cases, and so from day
to day good resolutions fado and fall,
and the habit of disorderly and dirty
garments creeps into tho homo circle
and shadows the fireside by Its pres
ence. The subject of underwear Is by
no means an unimportant one. The
underclothes of any woman are tho
most perfect tndox of her character and
refinement of mind, as well as her taste
Authors' Successes. ,
Mildred and others have asked how
one may become a successful author.
Answer: First and foremost, ono must
havo something to writo about, then
write it with as much directness as
possible Never try to write about any
thing you do not understand. The world
Is full of experts who will detect errors
at a glance, and will not bo charitable
in criticising them. Writers who de
sire to have their writings published
often pay the publisher for doing tho
work. Otherwise they are 6ent to tho
editors of papers and magazines, and
are accepted If satisfactory. Uso nny
good paper, writo only on ono side, and
sign your own name or a fictitious one,
Just as you please. s

Plnld Atonl ami Velvet.
A plaid street dress, In which red and
brown predominate. Tho skirt Is open
each side, tho front to disclose a plait
ing of brown volvot, and a largo enam
eled wood button Is at tho head of each
opening. Tho slcevo Is very closo on
tho lower part, with tho material
shlrrod in tho seam, and is open with
threo buttons, liko those on the skirt,
but small, that fasten with cords. The
fullnesB of tho upper part falls below
the elbow. Tho blouse has brown vel
vet bretcllcs laid In folds, wide on tho
shoulders so as to fall out upon tho
sleeve and passing under tho velvet
belt. Tho bretolles are garnished with
buttons liko those on the skirt, a row of
threo across each, to form tho lino of a
yoke. With this gown a toquo of block
braided felt; with a rosette of green
Ivy leaves and berries on each Bide the
front, a larger rosette of red falllo rib
bon on each side of tho back, nnd a wall
of black coquo blades rising high be
tween back nnd frontEx.
Housekeeping dresses nro .among tho
fads of advanced young women. Ono
dainty model is of plain and spotted
cambric. It has a yoke and sleeves of
plain goods, tho waist is gathered full
into the yoke nnd belt; tho skirt Is of
straight breadths with a deep hem, and
a full, deep ruffle of the spotted goods
falls over the shoulders from tho yoko
of plain fabric.
Among the new tailor costumes is ono
mado of narrow-striped suiting. Tho
skirt has fivo back-plaits; there Is no
regular waist, but a Jacket with largo
sleeves and turned-over collar and
lapels faced with satin. A double
breasted vest, linen front and tie, and a
modified Bailor hat with two bunches of
plumes complete tho outfit.
A narrow-brimmed, round hat has
seven largo ostrich plumes, set In fan
shapo on tho front of tho crown. Among
these plumes are placed Jeweled orna
ments. This Is the only trimming, ex
cept a velvet band around the crown.
A black velvet hat has a very wide
brim, so full that it forms a wide, scal
loped edge, not unlike those worn by
children some seasons ago. Large
wings and loops of velvet at least five
Inches wide are the trimming. This hat
is Immense, but is so handsome and
stylish that It has been greatly admired.

A pretty little nmatour artist has
mado for herself a pair of charming

Tho mugplo contrast, which is tho

displayed in a bonnot intended for
evening wear at concert or opera dur

crown Is of whlto satin felt, tho tiny
strips being braided in basket fashion.
The narrow brim Is of softly-twisted
black velvet, cut out at tho back so
thnt tho hair shows below, while there
aro falling over it two of the long,
hornlike-shaped rosettes so much fan

n ten-inch white pompon, while on the
