Y. Home CRETONNES THE NEWEST FAD FOR BOUDOIR. DECORATIONS Cretonnes: Could there be a phase of summer or fall furnishing more interesting—and a fabric more beauti- tiful? If you have not followed the improvements that have been made in the cretonnes, there is a pleasant surprise in store for you. It is no exaggeration to say that there is not a daintier and more attractive drapery material on the market. But, of course, the cretonnes are not suited to all uses. For bedrooms it is the most suitable and the most beautiful of all draperies. It is a poor imagination that can not conjure up the vision of a boudoir all bright with lovely pink roses. Our mothers slept in chintz draped rooms, but it is doubtful if even the romance that clings to the things of bygone days, can invest their chintz chambers with more beauty than the rose cretonned bou doir of the belle of today. There is great variety, and if the maiden's fancy turns to a flower other than the rose, she will have no difficulty in pleasing her fancy. She can match any color scheme and secure a harmonizing pattern for any wall paper. They are most accommodating, the new cretonnes. Perhaps the brilliant poppies may be preferred to the more modest rose Or it may be that the violet Is the favorite flower of the maiden who is planning the room. In either case there will be no difficulty in securing a dainty cretonne pattern. FLANNEL SHIBT WAISTS AEE POPULAR. Shlrt-watat houses and departments are enowing new lines of flannel waists for late summer and early fall wear which are fascinating In material u well as style. That of the picture if one of the best models which has b««n brought out The low round collar and short sleeves are still in evidence, and it will be noted that the broad shoulder effect 1« very marked, this being attained by epaulette-shaped pieces of the blue flannel set beneath the edges of the fronts with simulated buttonholes and covered buttons. The collar, cuffs and epaulettes are trimmed with a white silk Boutache braid. NEWPORT DICTATING PRESENT FASHIONS Although the spring season is long past and gone and summer is now in the height of Us glory, revelations in costuming are constantly occurring with such regularity that it seems as if there would be nothing left in the way of new style features by the time autumn arrives with which to surprise the fashionable world. The Newport season, now in full swing, is responsible for the most of the interest centered at present upon mid-summer fashions. AH rules and regulations of dress are confused and togsed into oblivion and resurrected again with equal noncfialance to suit the individual caprice of these fashionable Newport beauties whose dictations in the world of dress are a absolute and unretractable as their social rulings. Newport morning, noon and night is the place to observe the very latest effects in the world of dress at this season of the 3'ear, and also the place where up-to-date milliners and dressmakers are now congregating in order that none of the many style notes may escape them. Black lace dresses have never been more popular, appearing now with appliques of jet, silver sequins, or colored embroideries appliqued upon their many frills. A black point d'esprlt, embroidered with solid bouquets of bluets was one of the most effective of the embroidered combinations seen the past week. Chiffons, organdies, grenadines and silks are legion, while the gowns which they fashion are accompanied by the most ravishing hats, strongly colored and tilted at angles that are positively alarming so great is the danger, apparently, of their sliding off the owners' heads completely. Huge aigrettes, long and spiky and as remotely connected with the color harmony of the hat they adorn as would be the poor relation to the owners, are seen everywhere with long, weepy looking, uncurled ostrich feathers playing a strong second part as trimming favorites. Garden hats are quite out of the running, their place being occupied by small, round hats made of flowers resembling somewhat the polo cap of last year. Two of these hats made of field daisies and cherries adorned the curly heads of twin sisters—who are leading favorites of the debutante set —on a recent morning drive. Now that the Casino is open, the fashionable throng that congregates during the early afternoon hours, brings togther a motley collection of gowns, including every dressy mode used this season as well as the sporting and calling types. Their wearers discuss everything from the clothes of their friends and the tea they drink to the latest freak of two well-known society belles, who, failing to secure bathing houses in time for their dally dip, walked down to the beach clad sombre, but jaunty, black bathing suits with shoes and stockings to match, but with their identity completely destroyed by reason of heavy black chiffon veils, with which their features were successfully concealed. Several dainty gowns recently noted at the Casino showed revelations in color and styles likely to be copied later in the early autumn showings. A brown chiffon afternoon dress made over a lining of pink striped, cream colored, louisine silk showed a long, sweeping princess cut with the sltirt tucked at the hem in several wide folds. The yoke of the blouse was made of face dyed to match the golden brown color of the chiffon, indicating by its use the vogue of dyed laces. This chiffon model came from the antlier of a well-known Paris dressmaker whose creations arc never extreme, but present many worty features. Brown silk ribbons crossed in sur- pliced-shaped bands, held by a hand- painted buckle at the bustline, introduced a really chic effect. Close to the brown chiffon frock was a gown that sounded the extravagant note in Newport dressing. While not at all practical for any but fortune's favorites, so wonderful in conception was it that a description is not without interest. Worn by a slender matron whose nineteen-inch waist measure was never more subtly accented, the gown called forth much flattering comment. Its foundation was black silk grenadine, made and fitted a la princess over a perfectly fitting underbody of black silk. Ground the base of the gown was painted a garland of big flaming red poppies, while their green stalks continuing up the sides of the gown lost themselves under a high chin-killing collar of poppy red velvet—built up in points behind the' lady's ears. These high collars, by the way, are much in evidence at Newport, appearing even upon the sheer white embroidered lingerie gowns. An Easy Way to Do Tip Curtains. House cleaning time is here, and I know there is many a housekeeper who dreads the lace curtain cleaning. Let me teJl you how It has been done in our house and my mother's for a great many years. Select a day when the sun Is bright but the wind not strong enough to whip. Wash the curtains any way you prefer (only do not rub or wring), until the water is perfectly clear; rinse thoroughly. Have the line tight and put the curtains on it lengthwise so the exact middle of the curtain will be on the line; don't stretch; place a hand on either side and smooth downwards very gently; pull the scallops into Shape, and in about "an hour your curtains will be ready to hang, beautifully dried, as stiff as anyone could wish them, with a crease down the center just as they came from the etore. In the treatment of small rooms with low ceilings keep to inconspicuous patterns and narrow borders, or, better stilt, If it be practicable, em- plor * *>1W solor of B pale snade > RS this apparently increases the size of the room. In event of slight inflammation of the eye a mild astringent wash such as diluted boracic acid does much to relieve the redness. DRY SHAMPOO. Professional hair ethics advocate the shampoo not much oftener than once a. month. What they do insist upon, though, is the "dry clean"— that is, the weekly or semi-weekly brushing. This, done in the professional way, is something that few women attempt for themselves, and yet it is easily done, as it only means brushing the hair from partings made in as many directions as possible. To make this a really cleansing process the brush should have the comb put through the hair, and the comb should then be wiped oft" on a towel. This is always done by the professional hairdresser, and almost always neglected when the brushing is done at home. In this is the whole secret, as the softness of the hair after brushing is simply the softness of added cleanliness. AVithout this, even the oil that is brought down into the hair by the brushing will only make it sticky without making it soft. Always wash the brushes in cold water with a dash of ammonia— never in hot water and soap, as the hot water especially, ruins the bristles. A few drops of carbolic acid added to the water is a good thing. Strips of stiff buckram sewed along the edges of rugs will prevent their curling up Car* of Steel Knives. Remove stains form steel knives with soap and Bristol brick. A large cork is a convenient article with which to apply these detergents. Polish with dry powdered brick. To remove rust apply oil and quicklime to the spots, keeping them covered for several days, then rub with oil and Bristol brick. If used infrequently, the blade may be rubbed over with oil and the knives wrapped in tissue paper. _ A Shabby Carpet. Will have its term of usefulness greatly prolonged if it he ripped apart, and then sewn together again with its most worn widths in the place of those which look tewest and freshest. < • • If one has thin eyelashes their color can be accentuated by a dye composed of one dram of gum arable, one-half a dram of Indian ink and four ounces of rosewater. Powder the ink and gum. add the rosewater; bottle. It should be applied with a fine camel's hair brush. For hypersensitive spots on the teeth due to an acid condition of the mouth apply sodium bicarbonate with an orangewood stick every morning and evening. NOW YOU MUST CROCHET TO BE UP TO If you want to follow the latest fad in fancy work provide some sort of knitting or crochet work for the idle moments spent on the porch or for the long afternoons at summer resorts. The most up-to-date crochet work is the afghan, which is made in the pretty wood browns and forest greens. The decorative and more artistic afghans being used are made in eight shades of the same color, varying in gradual and carefully blended tones from the deepest basic color to the most delicate tint, and then back to the first and dark shade, in rays or stripes that are from two to four inches in width.
