DRESS OF THE DAY. A CHARMING AFTERNOON FROCK. Many of the most charming and effective of the new afternoon gowns prepared for winter wear are trimmed with fur of some kind or other. The beautiful and uncommon gown pictured in our sketch is an excellent example of the fashionable fur-trimmed frock, and is quite an ideal toilette for its purpose. The material in, which this desir- able dress is realised is a soft cashmere-de- soie of a very pretty shade of prune colour. The bodice is extremely simple in shape, but is none the less becoming and effective. The front is arranged in pinafore style, the edges of the pinafore, which come right to the top of each sleeve, by being finished by a narrow band of skunk. Just below the neck, the front of the bodice is cut out in a small square, the space being filled in by an inserted i( piece of satin, of exactly the same shade, which is covered by an all-over design worked out in satin rat-tail. Above the top PUB-TRIMMED GOWN FOR AFTERNOON WEAR. of the corsage, which comes almost to the base of the throat, appears a dainty chemisette and neckband of finely-tucked ivory ninon. The sleeves comes a little below the elbow, and are finished by bands of the skunk, above which show small cuffs of the embroidered satin. An embroidered buckle of satin ornaments the front of the satin waistband. The sleeves are cut in one with the side pieces of the corsage, the latter being ornamented by an inserted piece of the embroidered satin which comes up rather more than halfway between the waistband and armhole. The skirt is quite simple in shape, is gathered a little on each hip, and is cut long enough to rest slightly on the ground all round. A band of the skunk, above which appears a band of the em- broidered satin, finishes the top of the very wide hem. FASHIONABLE FURS. The new furs of this present winter of 1910 are unquestionably the very largest I ever remember seeing. Muffs and stoles are both immense, and, whatever may be their draw- backs, form an ample protection against the winter cold. The proportions of the fashion- able stole are truly astonishing, many of the newest examples being fully three yards long, and as much as five-cightlis, and even three-quarters, of a yard wide. The muff is proportionate in size, and will comfortably ho'd both arms when plunged in right to the elbow. Nearly all the smartest models arc carried out in two furs. For instance, a stole of caracul will be edged all round by a border of skunk, the caracul muff being edged with &kiuik to maicii. Or a sioie of seal-dyed musquash will show a border of chinchilla, or, possibly, of ermine, the muff corresponding exactly. Ermine, by the way, is very much used as a bordering fur this year, its rich, ivory whiteness telling admir- ably against a background of dark fur. All the new stoles and muffs, however, of what- ever fur they made be made, have one point in common, they are as pliable and supple as it is possible for fur to be, and are as flat and free from bulk as the furrier can make them. A STYLISH BLOUSE IN SATIN CHARMEUSE. There is no time of the year when pretty clothes are so much in demand as at Christ- mas-tide, and the average woman who de- lights in shop-gazing knows how very tempt- ing the West-End windows are at this seasom. Bewildering visions of silk and lace meet her gaze, and gorgeous creations of exquisite embroidery make her envious and full of wistful longing. Yet, as a rule, these tempting party blouses are so high priced as DAINTY WEAR FOR AN AFTERNOON PARTY. to be beyond the means of the average woman, hence the design shown on our page are arranged to meet her needs just now. Stylish and uncommon, yet within the capa- bilities of the ordinary home worker, this blouse is worthy of attention at a time when Yuleti^e festivities begin to claim our thoughts, and party frocks have to be arranged for. The smart decollete blouse sketched in our illustration is carried out in a clever combi- nation of satin charmeuse, embroidered net, an,d ninon. The front, shaped in panel st, is fashioned of satin, the inner part of the panel being cut in a deep curve to within three or four inches of the waist, leaving straps of satin on the shoulders. Buttons covered with embroidered net are arranged in groups of three down this panel. A band of embroidered net, edged with a piping of satin, is arranged across the front, then a pretty soft drapery of ninon is brought over the shoulder. The ninon sleeves are finished by a quaint turn-back cuff of the satin- strapped net. In ivory-white or black this would look very charming, whilst the front should be a dull gold net embroidered in bronze thread. The pattern will take ] yards of satin charmeuse, half yard em- broidered net, and two yards of ninon. CHRYSANTHEMUMS IN VOGUE. Chrysanthemums are much in vogue just now as a trimming for winter hats and toques, some of the very newest models re- cently showm by fashionable milliners being trimmed with really us examples of the manufacturer's art. Mauv of these chry- santhemums are so wonderfully like the natural flower that they are almost impos- sible of detection at even a short distance. The majority of the more expensive blooms are carried in velvet, which is dyed and shaded to an almost perfect imitation of the living flower. These velvet chrysanthemums look their very best, perhaps, whem allied with some rich, dark fur, such as skunk, sealskin, sable, etc., though they are also wonderfully effective upon a background of black satin or velvet.
Musical Notes. (BY GI.AN-YS-HIRAETH.") There is a tendency nowadays to speak disparagingly of the works of Welsh com- posers. What is gained by speaking thus, I fail to see, and surely the detractors ought to keep in mind the enormous difficulties which our native musicians have had to con- tend with in the. past. As instances, we may cite the careers of Mr. D. Jenkins and Mr. Emlyn Evans. The former was 26 years of age before he com- menced his musical studies at Aberystwyth colege; whilst Mr. Evans, who is a self- taught musican, was much older than even that when he adopted music as a profession. Moreover. In their youth they had probably but few opportunities of hearing good classi- cal music-a very important factor in the making of a musician. In spite of these drawbacks, they, and other co-workers, have composed pieces which will favourably compare with the works of ordinary musicians of other nationalities. W hat more might be expected from them, particularly when you remember that we as a nation are only in a develop- ment stage musically? When the Cymru Fydd of J. Morris Jones dawns, Elfed's lines may be appropriately applied to these pio- neers — Ffyddlon Fuonit i hau yn eu dydd A heddyw mae'r meusydd gwynion Yn canmol eu gwerthfawr ffvdd." The ale of Conway C.M. Singing Festi- val programme has just been issued. The special anthem selected is "Fel y tosturia Tad (Josef E. Jones), which has been selected Hso for Ihe Liverpool Gymanfa. The anthem lies within the capacity of any ordinary congregation, and I sincerely hope that it will be adequately rehearsed by the different chapels. There are two composers bearing the name of Osborne Roberts, and the compositions of one are often attributed to the other. They arc, however, distinguishable, for the Llandudno talented musician has an initial T., which is not the case with the member I of the Society of British. Composers. Performances of complete works are stead- ily increasing amongst us. The Rhydv- meirch (Penmachno) choir, who has already performed several cantatas, is now rehears- ing Jeremiah (Owain Alaw) the Con- way Society is preparing Hymn of Praise" ana Lowcn s Rose Maiden,' and the Llan. rwst and Llandudno choirs have decided to study the" Creation." I should like to im- press on the members of these societies the importance of attending the rehearsals faith. fully. W ithout this, the performances are bound to be of a verv mediocre standard. Mr. I- rank Kidson in an article in Grove's Dictionary of Music atttempts to rob us of some national airs, including Clychau Aberdyfi." According to him, this air be- longs to Dibdin, and it was introduced in an English opera in 1785. Mr. Emlyn Evans criticises the article in the currerat number of the Musical Times." In regard to Clychau Aberdyfi" he asks, If the song is Dibdin's, why the delay of 66 years in asserting its n.ationality? "Besides," he adds, "the preservation of the words provides us with strong internal evidence in support of the Welsh origin. It is quite conceivable that the parody could have been evolved out of a proper Welsh version; but to imagine the converse—that the charming Welsh lyric is the outcome of a parodv—is unthinkable." Dr. Lloyd Williams, of Ban- gor, in an address he gave at Manchester the other day, (took the same view. A well-known musician called mvattention recently to the paucity of young conductors in our district. He attributed this, to a certain extent, to the little encouragement given to young musicians in the various chapels. There is truth in his statements, and chapel authorities might benefit by re- flecting upon them. Many think that the Manchester Orpheus is an unconquerable choir, and that it is even useless to compete against them. At the recent Blackpool Festival, however, an unknown choir from Stourbridge accomplish- ed the feat, though the Orpheus were in splendid form. R KYI FAYS. Two songs (a) "Lead, kindly Light (D Auvergne Barnard), (b) "An evening love song (Florence E. Chipman). The former is a new setting of Newman's beautiful hymn. It is very melodious throughout. Though not difficult, the song demands an artistic temperament to interpret it properly. Solos are now often rendered at our services, and the present one, Which is published in four keys, would be very appropriate for such purposes. In Miss Chipman's produc- tion we have a charming love song, which may be Confidently recommended to the vocalists. The words are by Clifton Bing- ham, and there is a German translation bv Bernhoff. Rendered bv a sympathetic singer, this song would be a most acceptable concert item. Both songs are published by the well-known firm of B. F. Wood & Co., London. o.
Lady Roberts and Temperance. The annual meeting of the Carnarvon Council of the Women's Temperance Asso- ciation was held on Thursday. Lady Roberts, in the course of an ad- dress, reviewed the past history of the tem- perance movement, and showed how now one and then another prejudice against total abstinence had broken down. The work of the pioneers was not yet over. The present generation of workers had to contend with many stumbling-blocks. More education was required not only of the children in the schools, but of the parents, especially of the mothers. If the children could not be taught temperance in the schools—which, however, she hoped they all would be be- fore long—they could be taught in the home by precept and example. They required to clear the road of the grocer's licence, which was such a snare to the women in this country. The Church must also be cleared from all connection with the drink traffic, and to make it impossible for the drink trade to have any influence in our national or municipal life. A great fight would have to be fought before the road of our national life would be made the safe highway that they should like to see for their children's feet to tread. (Hear, hear.)
MRS. WORKING-MAN How you can Spend Sixpence ana oe "hanked for it. If you can give your husband a breakfast that makes him say: I "I never felt so well in my life work w-as like piay this morning," don't you think he would thank you, Mrs. Working-man? He might not notice the difference at the time; but he would notice it during his work-hours. It will cost you just sixpence (not extra money Mr. Working-man must drink some- thing with his breakfast) to give your hus- band Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa to-morrow morn- ing. The grocer sells it in 6d. packets as -e well as gd. and is. 6d. tins; you have simply to ask for Vi-Cocoa and get it. There is nothing cheaper but if Vi-Cocoa were as dear as the dearest of all it would still be worth more. For Dr. Tibbies' Yi- Cocoa is cocoa, kola, malt and hops. These make, all the difference. There is no doubt whatever of the value in Vi-Cocoa. You can feel the benefit you derive from Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa. Do not ask your grocer for cocoa. Ask for —it makes all the difference.
[Br A FAMILY DOCTOR.] ——— A SHINGLES SUPERSTITION. Shingles is a complaint which is rat-her mysterious in its origin. It must be con- nected in some way with the nerves, because the painful blisters appear along the course of a nerve. It may appear on the face or forehead-an unfortunate situation, as it may leave scars behind when it has healed. A common place, also, is the side of the body running parallel with the ribs. It may occur symmetrically on each side, but do not believe the old wives' tale that if the blisters meet, the death of the patient is cer- tain. I strongly object to these silly super- stitions; they do real harm in frightening people who already have enough to put up with in bearing the pain of their illness.
-:0:- A PAINFUL COMPLAINT. One of the greatest troubles in dealing with shingles is that the pain is felt a day or two before the blisters appear, and it is im- possible for anyone to say what the pain is due to; it may be mistaken for pleurisy or appendicitis or a number of other complaints. It is only when the spots appear that the true nature of the case is made apparent. The best application is some simple oint- ment, which prevents the blisters sticking to the clothing. Ordinary vaseline may be sufficient; or zinc ointment may be used. If the pain is very bad, a little cocaine may be added to the ointment. The pain is so wear- ing that it is best t-o lie up in bed. If you drag about at your work you will make yourself ill and open the door for other troubles. Some people are lucky in having very little pain, and they can continue to earn their money, but such cases are in the minority.
o: LOSING YOUR HAIR? Do not be unnecessarily alarmed when you find your hair coming out it is meant to come out; everybody's hair comes out. A full-grown hair is easily seen 011 the brush, but you do not notice the new hair growing out of the seal]) and only about a quarter of an inch long. It does not matter if you cut down the trees of a forest so long as you do not cut them down too fast, and plant a new tree for every fallen one. When a hair is discovered on the brush, it does not follow that the root from which it grew is des- troyed. Far from it; at the moment you are contemplating the hair with a sorrowful countenance, the new hair is just beginning to sprout, and is begging you to be of good cheer.
o: RENEWING THE CROP. It is a lucky thing the hair docs fall out and that others grow up. In this way your head of hair is completely renewed from time to time. If you never saw any hairs on the brush, but had to be content with the same old head of hair, year in and year out, you would soon look like a worn-out door- mat. There is one cause of worry removed this week; you are not to worry simply be- cause an old hair is replaced by a new.
o: A PASTE FOR ECZEMA. Eczema takes a variety of forms and arises from a variety of causes. Two forms of treatment are necessary, local and general. In the general treatment, the diet must be carefully regulated. An excess of sugar must be avoided, and indigestible articles of diet such as pickles, strong tea, ana heavy pastry must be left out. The patient should not eat too much overload- ing of the liver may be responsible for an outbreak of eczema. For local treatment I recommend a paste which I have often found successful. It is made of two drachms each of zinc oxide, starch, vaseline, and lanoline. It is best not to wash the eczema- toug part with water to get rid of the old paste before putting on fresh, and to cleanse the skin oil may be used.
o: RULES FOR AVOIDING CONSTIPA- TION. 1. Drink a large tumbler of water on get- ting up. 2. Go through a few exercises, especially those that compress the abdomen and liver, such as bending and stooping. 3. Take brown bread and porridge for breakfast. 4. Eat very slowly, and see that the teeth at the back of your mouth (the grinders) are in good condition. 5. Avoid strong tea as poison. 6. Avoid muffins, crumpets, stodgy cakes, new bread, and rich pastry. 7. The more fresh air and out-door exer- cise you get the better. 8. Drink a large tumbler of hot water at night. 9. Try and do without drugs. 10. Mothers, please train your children properly; is is care and ccmmonseiitse they need, not bucketfuls of brimstone and treacle.
-0:- SITTING ON A TACK. Beware of taking a drug to deaden pain when that pain can be removed by sensible means. If you are sitting on a tmtack, and you feel pain in consequence, the best treat- men.t is to get off it. But you don't; you send for the doctor and say, "Oh, doctor, I am in such pain, can you give me some medicine for it?" You have not the sense to remove the cause of the pain, and you won't pay the doctor for good advice; it is only when he gives you a bottle of medicine that you pay him, and not always then. And so the poor wretch, knowing that the only treatment is to get off the tintack, shrug his shoulders, calls you a fool under his breath, and sends the stuff round. It is vour own fault; you go on drinking stewed tea, drink- ing too much alcohol, sleeping with the window shut, wearing tight boots, neglect- ing your habits, neglecting your teeth, eat- ing the wrong things and eating too fast, smoking too many cigarettes, going to bed too late, and committing a hundred breaches of the laws of hygiene; and when you are in pain, instead of giving up the bad habit that caused the pain, you go on sitting on your tintack and trying to avoid the pain by taking a large dose of a powerful drug which poisons your nervous system.
o: COMPLICATIONS AFTER DIPHTHERIA. When a child has come home from the hospital, having recovered from an attack of diphtheria, two complications should be watched for. They come on very late, and possibly long after the little patient has apparently recovered. One is paralysis of the legs, and the other is an affectioii of the sight. The paralysis first shows itself bv a weakness in the legs the child may be com- pletely paralysed and unable to move the legs, but in the milder cases the legs may be only weak. If there is the smallest sus- picion of weakness in the legs, the child should be put in bed and kept there until you can get proper advice from a doctor. The affection of the sight realb; a paralysis of one of the little muscles in the eve: th? chijd js unable to see to read, and complains of (telling of the eyes. Again, in this case, the child should be forbidden to read or sew or do close work of any kind, and advice should be immediately sought.
o ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS F. Ball.—Eat only light food, and report yourself to the surgeon every six months. C. D.-Your son certainly needs advice. I but I cannot recommend you any special doctor. A. B. C.—Cannot advise. Regular Reader.—Not to be neglected seek advice. Boadicca.—Wear comfortable boots and cut the corn do not make it bleed, and see that the knife is perfectly clean. Troubled.—Sorry you cannot consult me no one knows who I am; it is a mys- tery. Crisp.—Keep on taking the medicine you got from the hospital.
As much care has been spent on our I advertisements as in our news. Both are ) well worth reading.
