, New Lingerie
The very lightest pink and blue
batiste is In favor for underclothing.
. It washes well and Is not by any
means so ruinously expensive as sllk.
French women stow these delicate
articles In what Is called a lingerie
basket , covered with cretonne and
trimmed with ruchings and lace , Inter-
lined with plain color In harmohy
with Its contents. This forms quite a
pretty adjunct to my Indy's chamber ,
and the cover Is generally wadded , S
large , fiat bow on the top. Ribbons
form the hinges , but there are pockets
Inside for holding sachet bags , which
- - . \ give the different articles a delightful
sroma. In these baskets these dainty
garments are not In any way crushed ,
and sometimes they are divided In
four and have a series of trays for
each kind of lingerie. It should be
large enough to hold a petticoat at
the base , and the corset coverri ' are
stowed away under straps of ribbon
In the lld. These baskets are mostly
of wicker , and are rather a pretty
present to give a bride , or , indeed ,
to any friend.

She bought , a coarse mesh fish net
