An adorable little gown, which was ona
of an outfit dealgned for wear at Palm
Beach. Is shown in the first Illustration.
It was fashioned from ftne white linen and
trimmed with lace. The bodice had a drop
yoke of the lace, extending down tha
sleeves and ending In a' point. From be
neath this yoke fine hand-run tucks ex
tended to the bust line. These tucks wers
also In the sleeves and skirt. In the skirt
they started at the waistline, which was
Just slightly raised, and ended at about
hip depth. Quite the most attractive fea
ture of the frock was the deep straight,
flounce of lace. This flounce did not ax
tend across the front It ended Just slightly'
within the edges of the panel formed by
the center-front tucks. The tucked upper
portion was laid Into this flounce with
the tucks perfectly flat.
The selection of the aouthern outfit Is
naturally influenced by Just which resort
Is to be visited. At Palm Beach, the mid
winter Newport of this country, a far'
more elaborate and complete outfit Is
requisite than at Nassau, for example,
where life Is simpler and the visitors go
In much more genuinely for unfettered out
door life. Bermuda, again, requires a less
summerlike trousseau, and there must be
smart cloth costumes and gowns of voile
and silk Instead of only the linen and
lingerie frocks that the climate of Florida
demands. At Aiken, on the other hand,
and the different communities In Georgia,
Carolina and Virginia such an outfit aa
would do service In the north during tha
early spring will be what la needed.
To Clean I'lanw Keys.

Wiping off with clear water afterwards.

others with a finger and hold It firmly.
Secondly, use "only the very smallest
amount of javelle water, because If you

It will cause the wood to swell.
The process Is, however, safe If a womaa
will be careful.
If one key Is cleaned at a time and tha
directions given are followed success will
