8 THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. NEW YORK. SUJN'DAY. OCTOBER 27, 1018. Fall Modes in Washington fSpecial to The Eagle.) AYashington, D. C, October 26, 1918. EVERY day serves to emphasize the fact that whatever economies and sacrifices tho women of America may be called upon to practice between now and next harvest time, either in peace or war, the women of Washington will continue 5 be smartly dressed with due regard in the prevailing modes of Faris and "ew York. Washington has always been a law unto itself as regards afternoon and . evening clothes, although the latter, . according to some pessimistic prophets, arc to be taboo In the coming winter, a prophecy which this column docs not accept for the reason that never in all the social hls-' tory of Washington has the dinner ' grown been abandoned. With nine out of every ten men in uniform, it ; la not within the range of probability that women with the price to pay will ' turn from the new silks, satins and velvets, that while loss general than few years ago are richer and finer than ever. In the matter of street dress the fashions are definitely established with the narrow 6kirt and straight line of coat or tunio holding first place. A small but significant detail that has its reason in an official order of Vice Admiral Sims, commander of the United States naval forces In Europe, is the high collar, be it lace or linen, Eilk or satin, which is replacing the round or square neck with women of discriminating taste. Not that this popular officer has dictated to his country women generally, or his Washington friends in particular, how to dress the neck. It is not likely he lias ever told Mrs. Sims what to wear. He is not that kind of a man and incidentally she is the kind of woman who knows without being told. The official action of the American commander applied only to the officers of the fleet, who sought to change the high collar of their uniform for the more comfortable rolling collar of the British navy. For the best of reasons the Vice Admiral said no, and back came the high collar to stay. The discussion of details of uniform, always widely discussed in all branches of the military service, was quickly seized upon by the designers with the above mentioned result. The Vice Admiral and Mrs. S.ims are an extremely interesting couple with a : permanent place in Washington where their marriage took place in 1905. The bride was Miss Anne Hitchcock, daughter of the Secretary of the Interior of that time, the bridegroom a popular hut not especially distinguished young officer, whose romance had begun years before in Russia, when Mr. Hitchcock was American Ambassador and Lt. Sims an attache of Embassy. There are people still living in Washington who talk of the sacrifice Anne Hitchcock made when she followed her heart and set up housekeeping in a little house on 17th st. on the salary of a lieutenant commander. , But then there are some few people of an older generation who love to tell how the late Mrs. Condit-Smith opposed the marriage of her brilliant daughter Louise to Jlaj. Gen. Leonard Wood, U. S. A., when he was an assistant surgeon in the Army. Both Mrs. Wood and Mrs. Sims are the very best type of American womanhood. Just as both were charming popular girls in the most distinguished residence as well as official circles in Washington. Mrs. WafrsUfT's Smart Suit. . Mrs. David Wagstaff, who with her husband, Capt, Wagstaff, is now estab lished In the Massachusetts ave. residence they have rented for the winter, is a distinct acquisition to the military circle and society generally. Mrs. Wagstaff has all the stylo ono is accustomed to associate wilh Fifth ave. plus a very charming manner, which some transplanted New Yorkers fail to bring to Washington. Mrs. Wagstaff is wearing one of the ultra smart suits of blue cloth and black satin on long straight lines with a very becom-ign round velvet hat with soft crown and brim turned by a master hand to produce the maximum of style, yet preserve an ostentatious simplicity. The smart high stock and filet Jabot were minor items all in keeping with this toilette, Mrs. T. DcWitt Talmage has accepted the new silhouette and adapted it to her graceful figure in a one-piece gown of deep purple velours de laine made with the skirt showing three tiers, each bound in self-colored braid, while the upper part of the gown is perfectly plain from neck to well below the hips. It is at this point the first and widest tier is attached to the gown proper. The sleeves which make or mar many a costume are very long and very close from elbow to wrist, being fastened that entire length by small cut glass buttons matching the gown in color. The high cloth collar opens in front over a jabot of lace. A small ostrich trimmed hat is worn with this. The Marquiso di Brolo Lanza, daughter of the late William A. Hammond, former Surgeon General of the Army, who despite her foreign name and title is the mother of two gallant young officers now fighting with the American forces in France, has tem porarily forsaken Washington, where she has lived since her widowhood, to pass. the winter in New York. Returning to Washington to relinquish her apartment, Mme. Lanza wore a mod ish black cloth suit with one of the new red hats which are being featured by certain importers and destined to tone up the black and dark cloth suits nine out of ten women are wearing. This particular hat is a round Eng lish shape of a lighter tone than the famous henna and very becoming to the Marquise, who in spite of her prematurely white hair and her two soldier sons could never be described as middle aged. Mrs. Frazcr's Service Frock. Mrs. James Carroll B'razer, who is giving a large part of every day to the luncheon room and diet kitchen maintained by the Woman's Section of the Navy League, of which she is president, is wearing a blue serge gown of particular elegance, as the skirt is covered half way to the waist with rows and rows of inch-wiile black silk braid put on in a close block pattern. The top opens over a white vestee and is finished in black satin reverses and soft tie. There Is no jacket to this, as Mrs. Frazer's outer wrap In one of the smart military capes in black or very dark blue cloth. A Continental hat in black with paradise aigrette tops this smart autumn gown. MARGARET WALE.

The new bags are kaleidoscopic in their blending of tones, but they are ex- : quisite as well, many of them sug-', gesting the lovely patterns of old tapestry or Oriental rugs. They are of good size, too, these smart bags, some mounted on metal frames of dull gold or silver, others with a metal clasp only, the remaider of the frame ' being bead-covered. ' Newer still than the metal frame is that of the amber or tortoise shell, the colorings of the r beads determining the tine of the ; mounting. The best of these bags are hand-made, which explains their cost-: linoss. $50 upward being asked fer the more elaborate patterns, j Side by side with a bag in a riot ot '. tones reminiscent of the Russian . ballet may be seen a bag in the soft-f est of gray tones steel, silver, aluml- num with a silver frame, or again a ' dark blue bead foundation, relieved by ; simple design in lighter blue, dull red r or orange. Then there are exquisite " jet and steel-beaded effects and other bags that look as If the maker hau f'had an old antimacasser ornamented -with a floral design in wool for a pat-.' tern. They comprise a fascinating ar-j' ray, these gay kerchief and purse holders, and they rivet the attention of '. every woman who cornea within stgnt ; of tne Dag snowcases in tne shops. i For those who do not care for the large bead bags there are tiny change . purses with draw strings of knitted or crochetted beads to match. These are lovely trifles, but the cost is not a , tvlfie for it is usually about $15. The j coloring of one particularly charming ; little bag of this sort was sliver uhot j :. with rose producing an opalescent ef-,, feet. Then there are darker hued . ; change purses in iridescent tints. j i Powder puffs, too. are beaded, that j : ?s. the lower half is of beads in various ; ' hue?, and the top is fashioned from i ; fanov pill; or ribbon. i Of course there are stunning suede and satin and leather bags that, are j simplv or elaborately ornamented I i with beads but the bag de luxe is hi.

T'l Vnfn fnr chenille embroidery i fall frcoks has broiie-ht about the return of the chenille patterned bur. and included in the season's collection. are some handsome bags in black, blue or brown brocaded velvet. The girl who likes to have individual accessories is pretty certain to evolve a bag that is "different." Such HEN the war is won, the mat ter of readjustment is going to have a salutary effect cer tainly on many of the things that it has influenced. Just how and in what way it will affect woman's wardrobe Is an open question. Will the various models in frocks and coats sponsored by the war to fulfill needs of conservation go out? And will there be a rapid turning back to the modes of ante-bellum days? Opinions vary, Costume designers the country over are insisting that this and that model has come to stay. "This perfectly charming little coatee of fur. for instance, with its military collar, Is certainly a perma nent model," said a modiste the other day. "In spite of the fact that it came In with the war lt has rapidly taken feminine fancy and is here to stay." The fur wrap thus referred to has had a sudden and overwhelming popularity. It is the sort of garment that one may invest in with impunity, knowing that in so doing one Is saving wool for the service man. And then it has that Jaunty youthfulness which expensive fur wraps of former sea-sous have lacked. At the aviation meet at Belmont Park yesterday this stunning squirrel coatee worn by a young matron was much admired. It was fashioned with a military cape collar of the fur and large fur buttons fastened the belt and coat front and also trimmed the sides of the coatee at the lower part. The back fell in capelike loose folds from the shoul ders. Many coats, short and Jaunty, and coatees also, were noted in this representative gathering. They were made of kolinskey, nutria, krlmmer, Hudson I seal and moleskin. Some were built on straight lines much like sports coat, fitted at the waist line by a narrow band of the fur. These handsome serviceable furs are not, however, reserved for the jaunty coatee and cape. They are employed with equal success for the three-quarter length coat that will come into its own when winter days arrive. These longer coats form a most attractive group for they are fashioned on good lines and the brown or gray peltry is becoming to all j types of femininity. Shawl collar and i 1 . GRAY SQUIRREL a bag has been fashioned by a Brooklyn young woman who has receive.'! nwriy compliments on Her handiwork. She is a clever Knitter and lias given much time to knitting for the Red Cross. It was this war service that gave her an idea tor a Pag. .Slip bough!, sunn, mercerized thread in a lovely old gold tint, hunted around for tassels in same color and then chanced upon a frame that is a perfect match. She knitted a good-sized bag, lined it with ribbon that is striped in a harmonizing color, and for a limited expenditure has a bag that is distinctive and I hat, she can carry with a brown or blue or black costume. Feather t'irbans make delightful hats for this time of year, and the variety In shape nnd coloring is an offset, to their undue popularity, Tlin pheasant feather toques are smart and an extreme model in of orance-hued feathers with a touch of bin'.K. SEALSKIN TRIMMED WITH SKUNK deep cuffs add to the grace of these garments and on the more youthful models a belt Is introduced with excellent results. The linings are worth noting for they are chosen with special, reference to the fur they accompany. Caracul coats are also on the modish list and the long loose effect model with shawl collar and cuffs of skunk is h very desirable addition to the season's wardrobe. Then there are the fur coats for winter motoring that form a distinctive group, dyed muskrat being a favorite selection. Luxurious Coatees. Mink, the dark striped rich toned variety, has been made up into some of the most luxurious capes of the season. This peltry lends Itself admirably to the graceful lines of the abbreviated wrap that is so modish and chic. It comes in tho length that is a bit deeper than the coquettish Eton and also in the more suitable winter length that well covers the hips. Moleskin and ermine, the white unspotted ermine, is one of the combinations that makes for a luxurious shoulder wrap. Tho white fur form. the shawl collar and also the nar-roi- border to ono of these interesting capelets. Chinchilla and broadtail is another effective blond In a waistline cape, but these furs arc In the hard-to-got-claxs just now. In addition to lla use as a foil in the softer haired sealskin, skunk i employed extensively ns a trimming peltry. It Is seen on frocks of satin, serge or velvet, rilsoroelly Introduced It should be noted, and it figures conspicuously on many of tho trim tail-lours, particularly thosn In brown lones or dark purple, In both narrow ami broad bands. Skunk Is much In vogue Rixn for scarfs nnd capes, and many handsome models arc on display this season. Of course fox retains lis supremacy SEALSKIN ; BEAVER COLLAR AND in scarr mult sets, tne deep brown I and taupe shades having tho greate. WRAP OF SEAL WITH SABLE HOOD. reference should be made to this Jaunty little chapeau irrespective of its accompaniments. As the wintry days draw closer the all fur turban will loom large in the millinery world, but just now it is the crown or the band or the fetching ornament of skunk, moleskin, beaver, or krimmer that Is noticeable on a hat of velvet, satin or furry beaver felt. Beaver for Trimming. Beaver is the trimming used on many coats of sealskin, and an enviable garment pictured here is of sealskin with large collar, revers and deep cuffs of beaver. Another coat of sealskin, also illustrated, has a large collar and deep cuffs of skunk. Thi3 coat Is also bordered by a deep band of skunk. v At the matinees at the Broadway houses, where the big audiences are composed of men in unifurm and attractive yet not elaborately frowned women, smart apparel of individuality and elegance is much in evidence. A sealskin cloak with deep sable hood was noted m the lobby of a prominent toward the lower part. There were slits for the hands at either side. Decorative Vac of Fur. Fur plays an important part in trimmings this season. One rarely sees a cloak or coat of the better grade without its large collar, cuffs and perhaps a deep bordering band of fur. Even pockets are indicated or simulated by wide patches of fur. A very attractive cape noted recently of overseas blue velours had a large cape collar of gray fox, which foil over the shoulder points at the vogue because they hnrmonlzo so well with the somber tinted frocks and suits that well dressed women are wearing.

The cape was lined with silken material whose background was in the same tone as tho wrap, patterned in a novel effect in red and green. The hem of the wrap was bordered by a band of tho gray fox. Tho smartest three-piece sets of fur are making their appearance hat, muff and neckpiece. The. short-haired furs are preferred for these sets, such as sealtkln, moleskin, beaver, nutria, kolinsky and krimmer. Chic Set of Krinuncr. A very chic and youthful set made of krimmer w.m noted in a smart Fifth ave. shop window. The little turban showed a band of the krimmer around tho lower part and the pointed crown was formed of blue velvet.

Kindergarten Methods as Valuable for Home as for School, but Children Should Be in a Regular Kindergarten if Possible Under the Guidance of a Skilled Teacher and in the Companionship of' Their Own Kind. AHTICXE XO. 53 BY SIRS. SIAJUE K. CHAFFEE. Suggestions by mothert who have been klnderf artner. luued by ths Bureau of Eriucatloa of the Department of the Interior and the National Kindergarten Aaaociation. BOUT year and a half ago a number of mothers in a small town petitioned their school board for a public kindergarten. They knew that there were at. least twenty-five children in the community who would attend and that there was a vacant room in one schoolhouso which could be used for the purpose. But tho school board contended that there wore too many other expenses for the coming year and that the town could not afford to establish a kindergarten. The mothers, however, persisted in their idea that the need for a kindergarten was very great, and after many months of patience and work they succeeded in persuading the school committee to give the use of the vacant room. A class of eight children has now been started, and it is in charge of a young pupil kinder-gartner who is taking this work as her senior practice teaching, charging only a small sum for each child. She is full of enthusiasm and the work has been progressing steadily under her inspiring direction. The children who attend the kindergarten are nearly all from good families. It impressed me strongly as I canvassed the town in search of pupils, that the very parents who could and did give their children every possible advantage were the ones who were quick to realize the opportunities in kindergarten training. Other parents, whose children were "running wild" physically and mentally, so to speak, would say, "We don't think our child needs to go to kindergarten," or We cannot afford to pav so much for just having Mary amused." All mothers should know that the kindergarten is not a place where, a child is just amused," nor is it a schoolroom where facts are drilled into his head for hours at a time. A well-managed kindergarten is like a well-managed home, a place where the children may develop naturally and normally. In the kindergarten they do this to the very best advantage under tho careful guidance of a skilled teacher and in the com panionship of their own kind. After a kindergarten has been started, mothers should visit lt fre quently and attend the mothers meetings which the kindergartner conducts for their special benefit. Ia this way they will come to understand the value of the games and occupations, or "gifts" as they are called, nnd will gain many helpful Ideas and suggestions, which may be used equally as well in the home as ia the kindergarten. And right here should bo pointed out the opportunity the kindergarten mother has In her community or the mother who knows something of kindergarten methods. She can start the right spirit among the mothers and children all about her if she so desires. She can form mothers' clubs and have a kindergarten train- ing teacher or supervisor give talks. The Spirit of kindergarten games can be carried out into the whole community, gathering in the fathers and mothers and thus greatly helping the child welfare movement. I know a mother who never had any real kindergarten training, but became Interested In lt when her babies were small. She read all th books she could find on the subject, and visited many kindergartens in order to understand more of the value of play as Froebel explains it. Thea the mother began to apply Froebel's methods systematically In the home education of her children. One of her daughters when Bhe grew up became a student of mathematics and the mother says that tho first lesson in mathematics began when her daughter was a little girl and wore curl3. As the mother made the curls each morning, the child would count. and add and subtract them and thus an instructive as well as a merry game was made out of what la usually a tedious performance. This mother has brought up four children, but even though the boys nnrt frit-la r, rit nil crrnwn tVtla fnmilv has never lost its play spirit How ' far we stray from the path of youth-fulness and Joy in starving the play-side of pur make-up I A man is old only when he has lost the idea of play, lt is not merely, "Come, let us live with our children," but "Come, let us play with our children," If you find these series of articles helpful to you, cut them out and pass them to other mothers, and thus aid Uncle Sam in reaching all the mothers of tho country. Answers to Health Questions By WILLIAM BRADY, M.D. (Jiirgle and Spray. Kindly inform we whether you ad-viso the use of any gargle or spray for normal persons for the purpse of preventing such diseases as influenza, grippe, diphtheria and the like. I suppose you would laugh at the Idea of wearing a camphor bag to ward off such diseases. M. M. G. Answer I would not spray my nasal cavity with any such purpose, but I sometimes use a mouthwash of as much boric acid as water will dissolvu when hot, with the vague notion of catching and killing a stray germ or two before infection has occurred. The camphor bag superstition is not to laugh; it. is a shame to waste camphor that way. A bit of limberger cheese or a piece of very ancient meat car-lied about the neck would frighten off as many microbes. Well, Well, What a Shock! I want to thank you for the excellent advice you have given me for the treatment of the hair. The brushing nnd massage stopped the falling of the hair entirely. Since about four weeks I have been using tho alcoholic solution of resorcln and salicylic acid and it seems to make my hair grow as if my head were 2 years old in stead of being 40. ti. J. &. Answer That is the whole letter- there wasn't a question in it just a plain unadulterated report of success. As a rule, when a doctor happens to do any good he hears nothing about t. thouan no always Bears mo ae tails if he fails to do any good. The solution referred to is 10 grains of resorcin and 10 grains of salicylic acid In each ounce of your favorite toilet water but the toilet water must contain the full proportion of alcohol to make a perfect solution. This is to bo rubbed into the scalp in small quantities once or twice a day. More Peroxide Pharmacology. Will you please inform me whether hvdrotren dioxide or peroxide is deemed a good agent for the first aid treatment of slight wounds? Does it not destroy all germ life instantly? 1). J 11. Answer--lt Is not advisable for first aid' dressings, because the explosive force of the bubbling or foaming which occurs when the stuff comes in contact with blood or serum may drive infection deeper. Tincture or iodine is the better first aid application. Peroxide in the wound is not a strong germicide. Angina Pectoris. 1. Is angina pectoris ever cured or curable? 2. Can it be helped by medicine? 3. Would the general practitioner be able to diagnose this disease correctly or does it require a heart specialist? G. H. I Answer 1. Some cases show permanent relief with good treatment. 2. Medicine often serves to ward off attacks, and is usually grateful to relieve the pain of an attack (the older name for angina pectoris or heart pang was "neuralgia of the heart"). 3. The family doctor is capable of diagnosing heart diseases of all kinds. Common Scl Warts. Please toll me something that will remove common seed warts from the I hands without injury to the skin. W. S. Answer The doctor's flnest.scalpel. A dash of cocaine, a dash of iodine, a dash of skill and your warts are gone. Or try just tho iodine, without the coke or the skill apply it once in four or five days for several times. Symptoms of Acidosis. Please tell me what the symptoms of acidosis are. Is there any cure for it M. P. C. Answer Acidosis is a state which may develop in the course of various diseases, fuch as diabetes. It. may also re.eur periodically in an acute form in children and the symptoms are grandma's complete lino of "worm symptoms" fever, slight Irritation of throat, heavy sweetish odor on breath, nausea and Incessant vomiting, discomfort or pain vaguely referred to the abdomen, flushed face, rapid breathing, bright eyes, whlto lines about tho mouth. Larue doses of milk of magnesia (tablespnonful every hour to a 4-ycnr-old child) till ca.tharsls, or a glasMful of cold water containing a. heapinK teaspoonful of saloratiiH tsoda) in any quantities the child will toko, or enemas of warm water containing twice ns much soda. In tho acidoses nf constitutional disease, like dlabet'-s, the chief symptoms Hrc rapid breathing nnd Htupor or coma. Of course tlio treatment would rcqulro a mcdlcnl knowledge. Dor-tor IIonr a Murmnr, When (lie doctor rxnmlned my henrl 1 he si'i'i he ir':d e. l fbi murmui, and that I must be careful. I am greatly alarmed. What did he mean? Thera was nothing else wrong that I know of. It was a fraternal Insurance examination. D. S. Answer A murmur signifies nothing in itself. Lots of us have them all the time and feel not at all worried over the fact. , Mouth Breath ing. , I have a habit of breathing through my mouth at night I control It all right in the daytime, but cannot do so in my sleep. I wake with a dry, parched throat and lips every morn, ing. Had my tonsils and adenoids removed last winter. Is there any way . you can suggest to overcome the difficulty? ti. V. T. Answer Several. First, the turbinate or spongy bodies of the nasal passage normally relax in sleep; this tends to narrow or close the passage and make mouth breathing necessary. The condition is aggravated in your case, perhaps, by prolonged neglect of tonsils and adenoids. You should therefore have your doctor make a few topical applications to the spongy bodies, to improve their tone and prevent excessive relaxation in sleep. ; You should sleep in a place where you; can uix'iiuiH coia or coot air an mgni, never warm air, which relaxes! and depresses. You should -wear either a chin strap to hold the Jaws closed or crisscross straps of adhesive plaster to keep, the lips together in sleep. The Follicular versus the Suppurative, Please explain what Is the difference between follicular tonsilltlsl and quinsy. r. ''8. Answer Follicular tonsllltls Is the common acute inflammation of tho tonsils, characterized by the appearance of whitish, perhaps malodorous, cheesy masses here and there over tho surface of the tonsils in the follicles or openings. Quinsy is any tonsilitis accompanied by pus formation, tho pus usually pointing in the soft palate bctwoen the tonsil and the uvula (thatt little finger-like tip of the soft palate' in the median line of the throat). Odorous Perspiration. Kindly suggest something harmless to apply for odorous perspiration of the armpits. L,. N. p. Answer Bathe the area once a day with a solution of a teaspoonful of official standard formaldehyde liquid in a pint, of water. Or apply this solution whenever needed: Salicylic acid, ' 40 grains; boric acid, 1 ounce; alcohol, 3 ounces; water, 1 pint; perfume, sufficient Books About Food and Diet. Please mention some good books upon food values and nutrition and diet. Answer Tho following are probably in all publlo libraries: Nutrition and Dietetics, by Winfleld S.
