Hullo is a lover of the p-aintings of
Watteau and Fragonard, else he
could never attain the airiness and
frace of hi; creations, says F.mile
)c Joncaire in her letter from Paris
in the May number of Harper's Ra
lar. Some of his evening and after
noon gowns have tmlined skirts of
voile or chiffon, but a short under
petticoat of silver or lace falls a little
below the knees.
One evening gown of white tulle,
called Mon Keve, is trimmed with
circular strips of heliotrope ribbon
embroidered in silver thread, giving
the impression of brocaded silk.
The skirt is caught tip and draped
to give a shortened effect on one hip,
and a garland of pink roses is drawn
across the bodice and into the tulle
drapery at the hip.
Another pretty evening gown of
pink and blue tulle is entirely without
sleeves. Silver ribbon shotilderstraps
and a touch of silver at the waist line
blend delightfully with the pink
roses which trim the bodice. The
lower part of the skirt, from about
the knees down, is of blue tulle,
which lays very full over a petticoat
festooned with pink roses.
For evening wear liullo has cre
ated superb brocades by embroider
ing raised flowers in varied tints m
faille, the leaves often being covered
by a thickness of tulle touched with
threads of dull gold. One of these
creations, made for Mary (iarden, is
an emerald green embroidered with
pink roses, draped on the hips, and
has a simple waist relieved by dull
gold lace. Another "tiarden" gown
is of black net, embroidered wilh
motifs of silver and thuictonrs.

Teacher's Final Success
II JAM; M I.liAV
Miss Smith taught school. There
was nothing remarkable about that
fact, nor was there anything extra
ordinary about MijjS Smith herself.
She did not loo!; upon her work in
the light of a prolcisiou, nor of a ca
reer carefully chosen and painstal:
iiitfly adhered to.
She was j'.ist ono of a thousand
other school teachers. She had
never heard of ,H-c,ial branches,- or,
if she had, i. never occurred to her
to think whether or not she was
suited lo her v.ork. She simply
taught school because her edtwalion
in the normal college made it pos
sible. Irom die lime (hat she was a
small girl her mother had always
aid with a gratified smile that they
were making a teacher out of Maud.
"Her father and I never had the
chance, but c want Maud to have
a real education,"
And ao Maud had conscientiously
worked her way through the high
school and normal, and was now a
regular teacher. She laught arith
metic, geography, history, spelling,
reading ami nature study. She bad
no knack of majving these subjects
of peculiar intercut to the children
who met in her room every day.
She simply plodded carefully
along, preparing her lessons care
fully day by day---borcd, if she had
stopped to think of it at all, and yet
she considered herself a worker.
However, there was just one
thing that made Miss Smith differ
ent from some of the other teachers.
She loved children. She liked their
shy attempts at friendship, she liked
it when they brought their small
problems for her lo solve, and,
strange to say, discipline in Miss
Smith's room was not so necessary
as it was elsewhere.
It all came about through Johnny
Deering, who was the acknowledged
bad boy of the school. Teachers
dreaded him, and when it finally
came time to hand him over lo Miss
Smith. Miss Bascom of the grade be
low gave him up with a sigh of relief
at the knowledge that a year of tor
ment was happily over.
Johnny knew all the dodges that
are usually employed to make teach
ers furious. He knew how lo aim
spit balls, and how to draw atrocious
pictures of teacher in heavy chalk on
the blackboard. But Miss Smith
never struck his fingers with a ruler,
nor did she keep him in after school.
She just laughed at the awful pic
tures and pretended not to notice
when Johnny aimed balls across the
room. And when Johnny discovered
that he was not making such a hit,
he didn't find it as much fun as be
had under fidgety, fretful Miss Bas
com. Other teachers asked Miss Smith
how she endured life with Johnny
Deering, and Miss Smith always
made some laughing rejoinder. F;v
eryone marvelled, and life continued
to go on for Miss Smith in quite the
same way as usual, only she was
really interested in Johnny Deering.
She wanted to make him like her.
One day she encountered Johnny's
eyes regarding her interestedly as
she explained a point in nature
study, and their absorbed interest
made her think of a story that she
promptly told, to illustrate . her
She forgot herself and told the
story well, the children hung on her
words, and for the first time in her
life she was flushed and happy. Tbe
principal had come quietly into the
room as she spoke, and coming up
to her desk after school he said
"I think you have quite a knack
with children, Miss Smith. I think I
shall put you in charge of the chil
dren's special,- you are certainly
Miss Smith's usually quiet hands
tightened in her lap, but her cup of
happinrss was not quite empty.
Johnny Deering slid softly up lo her
desk and held out a lough little
"Say, you're a peach," he said shy
ly, "I like you." And Miss Smith at
last knew what it meant to have a
