This has been the greatest jewelry season we have had lor years. Novelties are eagerly sought, and It seems as if the women simply can not get enough ornaments. The demand for the cheaper pieces has been unprecedented, as women of fashion have not hesitated to wear inexpensive baubles to set off their summer gowns. Their enexpensive- ness does not mean that real leaders of fashion have set the seal of their approval upon cheap imitations of handsome stones; as a rule, the quality of the pieces is pretty good, and where silver is used, although marked sterling, it Is very light in weight, \ ». •*' ' TEh :•••• YOU MUST WEAR JEWELED ORNAMENTS 3^% & ft^**Vl* •f* nfa'-'iMF'A ^^M^ 4^ _^-i*~ V-"'' ?*iS\' //' A BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED MOHAIR.

Some of them use scrapbooks; others, envelopes or files. The collections of certain of the girls comprise poetry only; others clip and preserve prose writings of interest on various subjects. Such collections may be made of great value. I know a man who started a library of newspaper clippings twenty-five years ago, preserving them in large envelopes and indexing them carefully. His envelopes number many thousands now, and the collection, carefully selected as it has been, is almost priceless. which makes such trinkets moderate In price. Many of the gold effects are nothing more than gilded sliver, but they are effective and answer their pur- nicely- The general adoption of the short .sleeves has resulted in increased in! terest In the bracelet, and no girl j would think of going without one. Most of them have half a dozen, though they are not all worn at once. Another article of which it seems the summer girls—and the matrons, t 00 —can not get enough. Is the beauty pin. This pretty little bit of jewelry is an actual necessity in these days of lingerie waists, and the modish girl flnds use for three of four. The pins really serve a ulitarian purpose, and are not designed, merely for ornamentation, as collars must bo held together and laces adjusted. Another article of jewelry on which the heart of every girl is set is the lavalier, that being the name given to the modish necklace of the day. The lavalier is set with pretty colored stones, which dangle in front, and it forms a dainty accessory for the summer gown. The lavaliera come in a great variety of styles, and the cost ia slight, when compared with the pleasure a girl derives from owning one of the pretty neck chains. Fall Styles From the Metropolis -O- Cabbage or Lettuce Salad. Four eggs well beaten; one cup of vinegar; two tablespoonfuls of sugar; one teaspoonful of mustard; one-half cup of butter.

Just before using stir in one-half cup of sweet or whipped cream. Use above with four small cabbages cut up fine, or lettuce in proportion. Stewed Fish. Drv the fish well. After they are cleaned score them, and fry in hot butter until half done. Put some flour into a pan and brown U; use thTaame one the fish were fried in.

Take three teaspoonfuls of tea iteeoed five minutes in one pint of hoiling water. Strain and set away to cool- When cold add 1 sliced orange, which has been peeled; 6 lumps of loaf sugar, 5 thin slices of pineapple. 2 liquor glasses of bran&y. 2 of maraschino and 2 of Medford rum. Mix and then add 1 quart of champagne, 'I bottle of plain soda (chilled) and one-half pint of Rhine wine. Pour in a punch bowl and serve at once. Mulled Wine. To a pint of water add a teaspoou- ful of cloves (powdered) and cinnamon, setting it where it will boll. Beat the yolks of three eggs with a teaspoonful of powdered sugar and as soon as the water boils turn it on the yolks and sugar. Add a pint of wine and stir in the beaten whites of the eggs.

Look the berries over carefully and place them without water in a preserving kettle, let them heat until the juice is well drawn and add sugar to make very sweet Boil ten minutes until rich, then add viuegar enough to taste a trifle acid. Blackberry vinegar mav be made in the same manner. The new cloth costumes for fall made their debut in metropolitan shop windows and suit departments at the same time that furriers exhibited their new designs in coats, capes and stoles. Sable and ermine combinations formed the major portion of the higher priced showings with white fox 3toles and capes together with white marabout stoles equally well represented The extreme light-weight of the marabout neck piece is a strong point in its favor and it is predicted to be the leader among the many charming neck coverings which fashionable women will wear during the early part of the season. Manufacturers have succeeded in producing small boas made of the white marabout with the individual strands as round and Perfect as a white fox tail would be. Ostrich feathers take second place, but mara- bout is by far the most practicable of the two, and lends itself to article effects in cape and stole designs with far better success than the ortrlch. The tiny little curls of ostrich in single strips are, however, frequently used to accent the shape of amara- bout boa with splendid effect All of the new colors seen thus far in the broadcloths, shelma cloths and other dress fabrics, are reproduced in these marabout and the coq feather boas, while the wood-brown mara- bout in sweeping cape design or even in the round boas resembles nothing so much as fine pieces of brown marten or black bear. The marabout ruffs are much less expensive than furs and will supersede the malinetta ruffa so universally liked in both color and design so soon as the cold weather makes a warmer neck and TJIAMONDS SET IN STEEL. A Parisian jeweler now declares that diamonds be set In steel. He has made a lovely and lengthy lorgnette chain set with diamonds. The steel is of a deep, rich blue color and the diamonds alternate In circles with strands of the metal. Another quite fresh Inspiration in jewelry is i a necktie made of velvet ribbon with ! dangling lustre ends of diamonds. i These are not worn tied round the i throat in Paris, but beneath a tall ! lace collar loosely knotted in front, and while one end is allowed to dan- ele almost to the waist, the other terminates half-way down the corsage. Corals so fashionable now in white and palest rose pink, are being set with diamonds, and, though the diamonds look to the unappreciative eye i scarcely more lovely than cut crystal, they really have a far greater heritage of brilliance than crystal. shoulder covering imperative. Newport and Saratoga beauties are, even now. wearing both marabout and ostrich boas atop their cloth gowns and coats, while the incongruity of a dark brown marabout boa worn with a light and airy linen suit seems to elict no surprise from anyone except the timid dresser who looks on in amazement at the styles introduced by her more courageous or convention-defying sister. Never has there been a better representation of new and novel styles than those exhibited at Saratoga the past month. Almost simultaneous \vith the disgorging in New York shops of importations purchased early in the summer for the winter season, occurred the annual openings at Saratoga of the newest things In even- Ing, afternoon and morning frocks. Even the children appeared in new toggeries, their dainty little frocks and coats eliciting aa much attention and approval as did the frocks of their elders. FOR SINGERS. The average woman or girl suffering with this chronic . hoarseness should never eat tomatoes, strawberries or lettuce, for these contain the very acids that accentuate the disease and for that reason should never be taken. Alcoholic beverages, especially when drunk to excess, have a detri-- mental effect on the voice, just as have many of the soft drinks. Coffee, too, is Injurious to many persons if taken more than once a day, for it Is not good for the liver, and anything that affects the stomach acts directly upon the throat and voice, and for that reason more effective treatment can be secured by a careful diet than by administering medicines. Tea and milk are good to drink, if they agree with an individual, but no liquid or food should ever be taken when it is either very cold or excessively hot, for either extreme is particularly bad for the vocal cords, for it gives them a shock and contraction follows, and often inflammation that is painful. COSTUME FOR STREET WEAR. WEALTH IN SLIPPERS. Women whose jewel caskets metaphorically run over with precious eems may yield to the fashion, which is reported to have caught society's fancv In Paris, of studding the heels of dainty slippers with gleaming Atones These may be all right at the ••small dances," where jewels are worn with lavish and artistic profusion but the instant such a mania reaches the street the fashion will cease to be attractive for the class ^of women who originally started it. The fear of highwaymen and the disgust at the imitations which almost defy detection will undoubtedly keep many from adopting what Parisian jewelers assert is a "fad" worthy of encouragement. One of the new China silks, the background a soft dove gray, the dot navy blue, makes up well in this dressy little shirt-waist suit The full. wsist, buttoning to one side of the center front is tucked to yoke depth, (he neck cut out and fitted with a Valenciennes-lace chemisette, and that Empire line below the bust is effectively carried out by the long strapped yoke or collar arrangement which is trimmed with buttons of plaia gray, tilk embroidered in blue.
