Every woman know-s the practical virtues of a, black evening gown,; and. now · that these black. cDatumes arij fashionable. one is ,Klad' to take advantage of- the eciiriomlcal. mode. Some of the black goivns are of satin; others aro · of chiffon; stllj others--, more elaborate---iiro-pf black laco In combination with, biack .chiffon. or satin;. ..or whlte^ chijifon .and black satin. A flesh, .t.intcd lining,: a ' d e e p red rose adroitly placed, a string of pearls--any - of these give contrast and interest to, an ^Si-black gown;' or one in black and white. A. practical black evening gown. co.mblnes a. draped skirt'pf-black satlti'flad a tunic; of black lace arid chiffon. An alternate tunlq t [ of, cream ;\ r onlce lace'-qyor black "chiffon and a sash of deep btut* brocade turn the skirt into quite another costume. Many of the be.'tt i, ihese war dnya. are turn r ing their attention to these combJnti- I tion costumes ana re making founda- i tion skirts..of black or white satin, with alternate tunic? or .blouses thiit ve UiC'. touhdacioa .skirt the desirable wholc-costumo effect. One such skirt is of soft, thick white satin, i pleated from belt to hean in narrow j shle pleats. There aro three tunics. Oae is of.white Georgette wlth'bamJs of'heavy whU^j Venice Inco, the long sleevw g:lv-ingr'the tunic an afternoon, rather, than an evening semblance. Another, tunic la o£ black velvet with fEicings of ;whiie satin; this for afternoon weaV with a .".mart -black hat black pumps and whito silk stockings. Tho third tunic Js o f . white chiffon embroitlerRd -w-lf;h small' black and white beads antl has flowing" sleeves and" 'a roumled docolletago---a tunio that accompanies .the white satin skirt. to restaurant dinners and informal dinner-dances. : . . Cotton Voile Frocks Popular.For . " . ,. .Afternoons .There are 'more darlc patterns in Ui'c 1918 voilo displays,.than .one has othar years. This is because so many wonion are demanding a { fabric'to take''the place of "summer silk," -which, has so sadly increased in prlc-s. Foulard, patterns in voiles r of dark ground are extremely popular, and n'avy blue voile "with, "whito dots or a w'flite scroll design Is Iramcnsely favored. These dark blue voiles are made up over white Japanese sJlk, or ara worn over the white petticoat and camisole, liko. a voile.of llgrhter tint, and they, make excellent costujcnea for all-around wear during:, the summer . Pictured, is. a navy, blue voile with scroll pattern In/white. .A llttlo plain blue Georgette Is ;added to give contrast and .smaJl Wuie sllJt fassels swing: from sleeve and,-drapery. .Tho foulard skirt illustrated Is an exceedingly graceful model, thu deep tuck breaking the straig-ht line and tho pockets giving a -Jaunty .^eml- sport suggestion, A blouse of ifhJte Georgette with cuffs and collar of white satin, accompanies the skirt'and the costume Is perfectly correct, as well as cool and comfortable, for any summer day occasion, except' brie of sp'oclal formality. Organay Xoeds Little Trimmiiig After all, there la no-more economical summer frock than, the frock.of rorgandy. One requires nothing- but ihs material; laco trlmmJnir is ruper- fluous; even the sash may be of the frock fabric. A pretty organdy model showing the prevailing fashion for 'tiny frills,- Is pictured. There are frills on the cuffs, and on the crossed !nchu. collar, and a frill stands up. crisply- from the deep hem, turned up on the outer side of the skirt Buttons of white crochet fasten ttia, crossed collar to the belt and trim the cuff. This trock lit made of pink organdy and the liat is pink straw with. Tvhit« fringe trimming. Another fetching qrsratxdy frotfk--In palo blue ·--has a deep tucked collar edged, with a tiny trill,' and frilled cuffs flaro back 'from ;the elbow sie.eves. The gathered skirt has slashed-- pocket openings edged with frills. Below the i pockets are plntucks In o f ; nine. Below the pintucks is an up- standingr frill, · heading a skirt _ Hem that reaches far above the knees. The sash of. blue organdy has frilled tab- " ends, tied at tho bacic. , Capes Por Sport And Traveling "Wear tan wool jersey cape-coat pictured, is an excellent moo/el for sen- era! summer wear. If. will .answer for a «port wrap or for a traveling, wrap. and may be dpnncd over an informal dinner pow.n if one has no more .elaborate -#T$p at', hand. COSTC31ES ' $ O:\IE of the new bathingr dresses h'a\'c clever convertible collars ·and. Bliieves which aro the last :\vor,d In convenience.' The collar may be brought up closely around-the throat to protect neck and shoulders from! sunburn, or, may be turned.down, as a decoration for the. costume. The little sleevss, slashed from top to edge, may be tarned over the upper arm and :!ast«ixed together by'buttons and loops aJon, 1 ? the slash or may be. turned back ag-ai:ast the .bodice-In. a sort of rever eftect, accompanying loops or buttons holding the turne'd-back sections . in ,'pJace, Worsted trimmings are very ; much the "thing on "bathing- suits thia season. The full bloomcra are gathered into knitted, ' ribbed banda that cling to .the knee, sashes are trimmed with v/orsted, tassels or plain bands o£ knitting and a knitted collar adorns tho necir of the bathing dress. Sometimes these trimmings are in one color; sometimes two colors are used in striped effect. . .; t THE "GEXERAIi .PERSHDfG'.'A - SPJQEXDH ORCHID A. new orchid called the "General Pershing" was the . feature of this year's exhibition, of the British Horticultural Society, .and this splendid orchid is quite the craze this season in London, It is a handsome, mauve orchid with deep 'purple tones' and carries itself with special grace and gallantry on. its stem! iryr 'benttlri_E;.'her-;^o,8itjVn:-as v ::v.war «' k cr;ln'.he^couat^»7ii^Hofc^-Vr·-··-' rack I : .pro_yicl6dj by. thi^vHe' iriay ;bpaV^riit^»hV/cliopHMr; in'jpBe^.pf the!- «reullyv iibvestJifated ''pensions -ivprk. : ^ ..Th"e-_:'jfirla'.*re'':'-in.e;t- JO l«nd^itc,':-' "Fraiice,- "by, -^«d.
