.... . . . " " ...................... ,.:_= :... , .: . .,,: ... THE HOBBLE SKIRT. Model of the Tied In Spe- cies That Is Not Extreme. Ecru satin foulard scattered with cinnamon brown rings is the color scheme of this pretty gown. The tied in band on the skirt is piped top and bottom with brown velvet, and at one side of the skirt there is a slot seam strapped across with simulated buttonholes of brown velvet and, vel- vet buttons. A real work of art in the guise of an old ivory button of goodly dimen- sions fastens the cross over bodice just above the waist line. The shoulder emptecemem is of oriental embroidery. which at the back of the waist forms a shallow sailor collar. The girdle coming from the side seams is of the velvet. Awfully Busy. The words arp in everybody's mouth; it is the great American catch phrase, says Table Talk. It is the excuse for all shortcomings, the reason for every mishap. On the whole, nobody seems to regret being awfully busy; it is a matter of satisfaction to be in the fashion. To have a day of leisure, or even an hour to oneself, wJuld argue that one was not at all in the swim. So there are many who multiply en- gagements foolishly with the mistaken idea that it is keeping up with the times to be awfully busy. With not a few it amounts almost to a disease to be always occupied, and the disease finally deveh)ps into nervous prostra- tion. It is n pity that we cannot learn something from the ways of nature, which is never in a hurry. There is an old proverb which we would do well to write upon our walls, "Make haste slowly." Here and there we find some one living up to that standard, and we feel at once the restfulness of such a character. The cahn, well poised per- son who accomplishes great things and who can be permanently relied upon does very little talking. The world's real workers never complain of being "awfully busy." Fascinating Motor Bonnets. Perhaps the most sensible of the motor bonnets of the season is the collapsible model usually made of pongee either in natural or some be- coming hue of the same material.
