Young Ladies' Summer Hats.-Figs. 1 and 2.

The round hat Fig. 1 is of fine black Milan straw. The wide brim, which droops on one side and is flaring on the other, is faced with green velvet. The trimming is confined to the front, and consists of a large loose bow of straw ribbon or galloon that is bound at one edge with green watered ribbon, with a bunch of roses fastened in the knot.

The hat Fig. 2 is of open heliotrope fancy straw, lined in the crown with cream surah, and with the wide, capriciously bent brim faced with cream straw braid. A cluster of shaded heliotrope ostrich plumes, with an aigrette and a chou of heliotrope ribbon, trims the back of the crown, and a bouquet of asters is fastened in the curve of the brim.

Summer Toilettes. Figs. 1 and 2.

The light skirt of the costume Fig. 1 is made of black-dotted white surah. The drapery and basque are of black surah. On the back of the skirt the drapery is hung in full straight folds which reach to the bottom of the skirt, while on the front it forms an irregular apron that is taken up in a revers on one side. The basque opens with revers on a simulated waistcoat of the dotted surah, and has its front studded with large ornamental buttons.

Fig. 2 shows a dress of light gray summer wool, trimmed with borders of open cord passementerie. The skirt is kilt-pleated. The drapery is hung in deep paniers on the sides, with full looped breadths at the back. The basque has a pointed plastron and collar and cuffs of passementerie. A ribbon belt is twisted about the hips, and tied in a long bow on one side.

Foulard Costume. See illustration on page 477. This costume is of figured foulard with a light ground.

—Young Lady's SuMMER HAt,

Fig. 1.-PLAIN AND Figured SURAH DREss.

A panel of white figured lace net is on the left side of the pleated skirt; it consists of a soft puff of the net studded with ribbon rosettes, with lengthwise pleats of net on each side. The polonaise has long drapery on one side and a short panier on the other. The corsage has a full front, with the folds drawn to a long point on each side of a plastron of net arranged to correspond with the skirt panel.

Cashmere and Silk House Dress.

See illustration on page 477.

In this combination dress a pleated under-skirt of dark brown faille française is associated with an over-skirt and basque of light leather-colored cashmere. The over-skirt has an apron drapery, which is slashed at the middle so as to form two points on the front; the back is looped up at the middle. The basque is medium long on the hips, and has a vest, pockets, collar, and cuffs of brown silk.

Summer Hats.-Figs. 1 and 2.

See illustrations on page 477.

Fig. 1. is a high-crowned hat of copper-colored fancy rough straw, with the brim, which is turned up on the left side, faced with copper-colored plush. A large aigrette containing a long white ostrich plume twisted into a rosette, some shorter tips in light copper shades, and heron feathers, tied with a small plush bow, is toward one side on the front.

Fig. 2 shows an English walking hat of yellow straw, with the brim faced with flat black piece lace. Clusters of purple and white lilacs are grouped on the front, partly veiled by a scarf of black

net, which is carried in soft folds over the crown of the hat and fastened underneath the brim.

Morning Caps.-Figs. 1 and 2.

See illustrations on page 477.

A SMALL cap composed of pink ribbon and cream Fedora lace is shown in Fig. 1. A band of the ribbon is used to form a small crown, which is veiled with a frill of lace. Several ribbon bows are placed against the front, and on the back a fall of lace is arranged in curves. The cap Fig. 2. has a small frame of net and wire, which is surrounded with a soft frill of white lace. The puffed crown is composed of eight lengthwise bands of lace two inches and a half wide. A large butterfly bow of pink ribbon and lace is on the front, the ribbon being carried in a point down the crown to the back edge.

of death are preferable to existence on such
diet.” The reason of such a difference is
because the latter cook takes so little inter-
est or pleasure in the performance of the
duty, and perhaps thinks it a menial work,
not remembering that in the olden time
royal personages lent a hand to the prepara-
tion of their own menu, and that in the reign
of Elizabeth cooks were often classical schol-
ars. Such a one will, for some unknown
reason, fry anything rather than broil it;
she will plunge her meats into cold rather
than into boiling water, and she seems to be-
lieve that after she has put the materials of
her bread and cake together and clapped
them into the oven, the result is quite beyond
her to determine, not recognizing that the
baking is half the battle, and that the tem-
pers and dispositions of her family are in a
measure under her control, no less than their
complexions. Perhaps one might trace half
the divorces and dissensions in the land, half
the family quarrels, to underdone bread, mud-
dy coffee, and fried edibles. On the other
hand, good cooking is conducive to clearness
of thought and quiet nerves. Persons who
are well fed preserve their youth longer, and
one cannot be well fed on badly cooked din-
ners, however costly. The ordinary cook
has, in most cases, little idea of the magni-
tude of her calling; preparing food perhaps
seems to her a very commonplace drudgery,
not worth a second thought. She believes
that she would be much better employed in
fancy-work, or in putting an extra ornament
upon her toilette, or in reading the newspa-
pers and Ouida's novels, and she regards
those who have the leisure for such occupa-
tions, and who are not obliged to burden
their minds with recipes or absorb the cook
book, with envy, Catch her studying to im-
prove a dish, to invent a sweetmeat, to add a
trifle to the culinary art of the world! She is
above any such designs; she does not even
dream that cooking is an art, and would be
astonished to know that inventive genius
was possible in this department; it has no-
thing to recommend it any more than wash-
ing or scrubbing or other household duty
to her good graces. But fortunately there
are occasionally born those cooks who do
not precisely “carry a talisman under their
tongue,” but at their tongue's end, and who
appreciate the value of their vocation.

COB WEB PORTRAIT.

IT was surely the touch of a fairy's hand that could paint a portrait on a cobweb. We have lately read of one such, owned by a lady in Pennsylvania. The colors of this gossamer painting are said to have been “beautifully laid on,” and “are simply perfect as to harmony.” The “winsome bauble” is Foulard Costume. said to have cost eight thousand dollars.

DURING THE MontiI of JUNE we employ hundreds of women and children gathering the petals of the sweet-scented Wild Roses, which grow profusely and attain their highest degree of fragrance in the cold climate of Maine. After being properly cured, these are combined with a choice mixture of spicy perfume —imported expressly for our use—making a Potpourri which will remain fragrant for years, and is desirable for filling Jars, Sachets, etc. We call this the “Wild Rose Pot-pourri,” which is our registered trade-mark. It is put up in a pink lacquered box with trade-mark on the top cover and our fac-simile signature on the side. Several imitations made of Southern roses and ordinary spices have been put on the market, bearing no comparison with our preparation as regards odor or permanence.

Our new stock will be ready in August and for sale in the principal cities, throughout the United States. Dealers and consumers who want the genuine should wait for our goods. If your dealer does not have it by September send 50c. to us direct, and a box will be sent by mail post-paid.
