with these are the tartan plaids.
They are very striking with a

that Is both congenial and re

for handkerchiefs is quite a businetiB. and
a raying one fo' some women. Although
the work seems simple, It calls for original
ity, senbe of color values and skill in com
bination. New patterns must continually
be brought on. Some of these borders are
rery elaborate, and the most artistic work
must be put into them. Reproductions of
rare old English, French or Venetian pat
terns, in combination with modern art lines

floral designs, leaves and other sugges

College Girl of Today
I ROF. Katharine Lee Bates of
I JLrJ Wflcy. writing to the Boston
iranscripi, contrasts the college
girl of today with the one of
twenty years ago.
Then the college girl was an exception In
her community She was usually the
daughter of a struggling country minis
ter, a missionary or a lecturer that is to
say, she came from a household of plain
living and high thinking. "She was stoop
shouldered, perhaps, and deficient In social
ease, but she took her mind seriously."
Today Prof. Bates fin da the college girl
In the merry foreground of the student
world, going to college for "the life." She
Is well gowned, athletic, radiant. She Is
free from morbidness and is not frightened
over religious doubts. She will be less
easily Imposed upol than her mother by
quackery in print or on the platform.
In other words te put It briefly, the col
lege girl of the period thinks In her heart
that youth, beauty, charm, the genius for
affairs, are the points that count for a
woman In the world. All of which means
that college life does not tend to destroy

Floral fans bid fair to be paramount the
entire summer, therefore the blossom farm
will be worn on all occasions. Violet and
forget-me-not fans aro charming with cer
tain toilettes, but pink and red rose fans
eome nearest to nature. They are llko great
bouquets. Many fans are even scented to
carry out tho Illusion. These flower fans
are striking. One worn recently with a
toilet of black lace had black sticks. Tho
flower fan will be seen at all the garden
party and afternoon affairs.
Feather fans will also be much used. A
typical one, In vivid greens and blues, has
sticks of bronze. It was recently worn
with a green silk reception tollet e. Another
typo of fan, becauso of Its simplicity, will
be used with costumes which follow the old
faahloned lines so much copied this sum
mer. One of these fans has a foundation
of peachblow silk. It Is ornamented with
rows of satin ribbon In a slightly darker
shado and with innumerable silver sequins,
the "eternal womanly," but is developing
a new and most interesting type of It.
Prof. Hates speaks with regret of certain
conditions In our women's colleges as less
favorable to mental activity than those ex
isting twenty years ago. But It la doubt
ful whether conditions for mental activity
were better then than now, unless one
limits those conditions to Incentives which
come from books alone.
There Is today a mental stimulus In tha
air which no one can escape. The prers,
the pulpit as well as the school, make
vastly greater demands on the Intelligence
than they did twenty years oga.
The result is a broader rango of Intel
lectual activity and a closer hold on life
rather than on the written page. Tho col
lege girls Is right in believing she will And
"life" In the university Instead of mere
dead letters, and It Is evactly this "life"
which has transformed the college girl
from the bookworm she may have been
twenty years ago to the brilliant Individual
she is today, ready for social and Intel
lectual affairs, nd ready. If need be, to
make her own way In the world on credita
