FASHION OF THE WEEK. "V A BEAUTIFUL EVENING FROCK. Picturesque and charming though nearly all the Jew frocks are, I think it would be difficult to find a itiol-e, beautiful and thoroughly satisfactory model than the one pictured in our sketch. This lovely gown is primarily intended for dancing, as it is cut to just clear the ground all round, but it would servo equally w. Ji for any evening wear, it being a simple thing to out the underskirt a little longer, if t'esiied. The foundation of this frock is a soft ivory satin, the veiling being a fine white riiuon. The bodice has a drapery of the ninon over exeh shoulder, the transparent, draped sleeves being cnt in one with the bodice. A li,,e. of sparkling crystal beads, set in a serried row edges the drapery and the bottom of the sleeves. Between the drapei side pieces comes a vest of ninon embroidered with a lattice-work of fine gold thread powdered with sparkling crystal beads. A band of crystal embroidery finishes the top of this vest, which is veiled by a transparent handkerchief point of the ninon, the edges of which we finished with the beads. A draped waistband of the satin finishes the bodice. The skirt has a tunic of the ninon which comes down to within a very short di taiice of the bottom of the gown, showing only a few inches of 8ittin underskirt beneath. This tunic is gathered all round the waist and uga-in about the levpl of the knees, where it is set into a broad band of the embroidered ninon, At the back, the tunic is set into a very much broader band of the embroidered ninon, both bands being edged by the crystal embroidery. These back and front bands are open at the sides, and are connected just at the top by a knot of golden cord from which hang long, tasselled ends. Paper patterns can be supplied, price Is. ljcl. Enclose remittance, and address to Miss Lisle, S. l a Belle Sauvage, London, E.G. Note: The price will vary from week to week
Useful versus Useless Christmas Presents. In this utilitarian age the practice of giving Christmas presents for which the recipient can find no ultimate use has largely been replaced by that of thoughtful enquiry as to his or her especial needs, and, as a result, the selection of an object which brings the glad ejaculation, That's just what I wanted." Of course, this entails more trouble on the part of the donor, but the reward is pro- portionate in knowing that one's present will not only be treasured as a gift, but used with profit on account of its practical value. Let us give a hint as regards choosing a useful and suitable Christmas gift. Fully half the life of the normal man and woman is spent out of doors, in the pursuit of either business or recreation. Sport claims its votaries from amongst every family and class, and weather conditions play an almost unrealizable part in the every-day life of the average citizen. What could be better or more appropriate, and withal more welcome, than a weather- proof garment in which to face the worst climate conditions without danger to health or comfort? Of course, the garment must be really weatherproof, and one that can be relied on to do its part efficiently and permanently at the same time, it must not be one that by inducing perspiration and fatigue causes more ills to bodily health than its protection was designed to overcome. In this respect we know of no better, more hygienic, reliable or becoming weatherproof than a Burberry. Everywhere one goes one sees these re- markable weatherproof garments worn by golfers, anglers, motorists, and those of both sexes and of all ages who lead an out-door life. If you are sufficiently intimate to ask a sportsman or sportswoman of such exper- ience who are their tailors, it is ten to one they will answer Burberrys, for not only does the firm produce garments in the shape of suits and topcoats for men, and gowns, hats and overcoats for ladies that are really weatherproof whilst faultlessly air-free, but these self-name garments bear the hall-mark of distinction, smartness and aptitude for the pursuit for which they are designed. A special feature about a Burberry as dis- tinct from other garments of its kind is that, being woven and proofed by exclusive pro- cesses, its resistance to weather lasts as long as its texture coheres; another is that the proofing fixes and preserves the colourings in such a manner that neither sun or rain have any effect on their pristine beauty. Thus a Burberry garment looks well and does its work efficiently until the very end. The following are a few points to aid selec- tion when choosing a Burberry garment for a particular purpose:—For a Golfer, a Bur- berry Klis Suit which expands and contracts to the slightest strain and always looks neat and workmanlike, together with The Bur- berry Weatherproof and Airylight Topcoat. For the Angler, a Burberry Gabardine Suit, and once more the Burberry as an auxiliary. For the Shooting man either of the above outrigs. For the Motorist and Traveller, the Rusitor Burberry, a veritable coat of nail against driving rain-sand cold winds. For the Townsman, T!he Urbitor, a smart, square-shouldered weatherproof topcoat. For. Ladies, A Burberry Gown taken from an innumerable variety of models again The Burberry Weatherproof, and a: Burberry Hat to match, trimmed with a dainty little bunch of natural undyed feathers in brilliant and sulbdued tones. If this advice is followed out there need be no difficulty regarding the Christmas present, and a supremely useful, healthful and alto- gether, delightful article of attire will have found its way into the recipient's wardrobe. Burberrys, 'needless to say, are the famous firm of the Haymarket, London, but that need make no difficulty in obtaining what is required, as they have agents in practically every provincial town. Their agents here are W. S. Williams, & Sons, The Pioneer, Llandudno, where Burberry materials in a large variety of colourings, patterns and textures, and Burberry Models in the latest and most up-to-date designs, can always be inspected.
That Ancestral Sword. MR ORMSBY GORE AND MR LLOYD GEORGE. In an address of thanks to the electors of the Denbigh Boroughs published on Friday, Mr Ormsby Gore says: "With the exception of the vulgar attack upon myself delivered by Mr Lloyd George in the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, at Den. bigh, and the profanation of a sacred edifice by a more than usually personal speech, I have no fault to find with the way in which the campaign was conducted. The Chancellor of the Exchequer stated at Den- bigh that it would be better that a man's right arm should be paralysed than that he should vote for me, and that I represented nothing but Welsh rents. I have been twice elected by the free suffrages of the free people of Denbigh Boroughs, which include the metropolis of North Wales, and as their re- presentative I shall go to Westminster to answer the personal abuse which Mr Lloyd George has seen fit to heap upon me. But personal questions aside, I regret that a place of worship of God should have been used asi a place of personal recrimination and partisan politics in my constituency. A Wrexham correspondent sends to the ("Manchester Guardian") the following ex- tract from a speech which Mr Gore delivered at Wrexham, on January 7th of the present year:— "Mr Lloyd George has abused our army. He seeks to rob the poor, grind you down with tax after tax. 'Down with the Lords and up with my house at Criccieth.' Let him come to Wrexham he dare not come to Wrexham—that traitor, who had to escape 111 a policeman's uniform at Birmingham. I stand to see him fall. What has he done for Wales? Absolutely nothing. lIe it is who taxes you and taxes your bread more and more under Free Trade. Free Trade is free- dom for sweating and starving. Vote for Tariff Reform and no humbug."
THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. What they say about a Food-beverage. Almost every day brings fresh letters from old and new users of Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa saying how glad the writers are to have had this food-beverage brought to their notice. Some of them have been taking Vi-Cocoa for breakfast for years they would not on an)1 account be deprived of it. Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa feeds them and keeps them well and hearty. They give it to their children. and their children grow plump and rosy, thanks to the feeding, warming, strengthen- ing effects of the great British Food-Bever- age. Breakfast with Vi-Cocoa in it makes all the difference to the day's work—Vi-Cocoa feeds you and makes your other food feed you better than if there were no Yi-Cocoa. with. it. If you once realise the real health-value of Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa you will always say Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa you will always say Vi-Cocoa to the grocer. 6d. packets, gd. and is 6d tins. Do not ask your grocer for cocoa. Ask for fif^Cocoa —it makes all the difference. Every grocer sells Vi-Cocoa in 6d. packets and 9d. and is 6d tins.
[By A FAMILY DOCTOR.] BOOTS FOR LITTLE FEET. No boots at all are better for the children than the worn-out pieces of leather tied round with string that some of them wear. On a wet day, the leather and stocking get saturated with water and the children sit in school all day with damp feet; but if they came through the wet with bare feet, their feet would be dry after they had been in school for a few minutes. It is a kind charity to provide warm boots for the chil- dren in cold and wet weather, but let me respectfully whisper in your ear that if you undertake this work you must inspect the boots every now and then; sometimes the poor have so much sympathy with the pawnbroker that they think he wants the boots more than the children. Boots are meant to wear, not to drink. And if you really are charitably inclined, will you order a few extra pints o £ milk from your milkman, have it warmed, and give it to the one or two children you are interested in, to drink "on the premises." If you give a can of milk for the children to carry home, you are never sure what becomes of it. I have known milk-cans smell of gin, but I expect it was all the fault of the oow.
-0:- IT MAY BE CANCER. A lump in the breast may be cancer, and it may not, but do not run any risk. The earlier a case is seen, the better for both surgeon and patient. I know quite well that you require a good deal of courage to go to see a doctor, but do go. Almost every week I see some unfortunate woman who knew she had a lump but would not seek ad- vice. Such patients all make the same re- mark the lump gave them no pain. I wish cancer were painful in its first stages. Un- fortunately it is quite painless, and so the poor woman either does not know the lump is there, or if she discovers it she takes no notice because she has no pain. Do neglect these lumps it is to your own ad- vantage to seek advice as soon as one is dis- covered. It is the same with ulcers of the tongue in elderly people. Seek advice early is the golden rule. Remember that a growth may be harmless and simple to begin with, but take on a cancerous nature if neglected and allowed, to remain for years without removal or treatment of any sort.
-0:- BAD FEEDING AND FLAT FEET. Flat-foot in a growing boy is generally a sign of bad feeding. The arch of the foot- is kept up by a strong ligament, not by bone. At the age of fifteen to seventeen the lad is growing rapidly and increasing In weight every day, and consequently the arch of the foot has to carry a heavier load every day. In addition, the lad has just left school and has begun to undertake heavy tasks he may have to lift weights and carry heavy parcels, putting a further strain on the arch of the foot. In healthy boys the ligaments are quite strong enough to bear all the hard work, but if a boy is overworked and underfed, the ligament is not properly supplied with good nourishing blood, and, being weak, it gives way gradu- ally, giving rise to the condition of flat- foot.
0- -0: METHOD OF TREATMENT. This shows that in the treatment of flat- foot two methods must be used—general and local. General treatment means build- ing up the general health with good food, and growing lads need much more in pro- portion than full-grown people. When you encourage Willie to have another helping of boiled beef and carrots you are really aid- ing in the prevention of flat-foot. 0' The local treatment consists in wearing a steel pad inside the boot and rubbing the foot every night with some stimulating liniment, such as turpentine liniment. Long hours of sleep and rest are important; while the lad is in bed the ligaments of the foot are bearing no weight at all, and they rejoice in the relief.
-0:- ACT AT ONCE. Children often suffer from swelling of the knee without any apparent cause it is in many cases due to tuberculosis. The child complains of no pain and may walk about without a limp in some cases, on the other hand, pain is a more prominent symptom. There is no acute trouble, no redness or heat, but one night, as the mother is bath- ing the child, she notices that one knee larger than the other. In these circum- stances the little one should be taken to a surgeon at once the sooner the treatment is undertaken the more hopeful is the pro- spect of complete cure. Rest, good food, fresh air and sunshine are the essential means of improving the health, and for the local treatment to the knee a splint is used. You cannot do much yourself without the guidance of a surgeon, but I only want to impress upon you the importance of watch- ing and examining your children with a view to detecting any commencing disease or deformity. Many of you like to trust to luck—"other people's children have swollen knees, but I do not suppose mine ever will." You had better not adopt the same methods in your business. Do not omit to insure your house against fire in the hope that you will never have a fire. No, examine your children, and run with them to a surgeon in case of the discovery of any tumour or irre- gularity.
-0: STOP SHAVING. There is a complaint known as Barber's Itch. It appears on the beard, and takes the form of a rash which soon begins to weep; the spots enlarge and increase in number; the matter that comes from one spot is infectious and starts another, and so on. It is best to refrain from shaving, in spite of the unpleasantness of appearing like Bill Sykes. The shaving with a razor irritates the skin and makes matters worse. Sponges, towels, handkerchiefs, shaving tackle, basins, are all a possible source of infection; the patient should keep every- thing he uses quite separate his shaving- brush should be burnt. It is impossible to cure this complaint under about ten days, or sometimes longer.
-0:- A HINT TO BARBERS. 1 find the most efficacious plan is to apply a hot fomentation consisting of a large piece of boracic lint wrung out of very hot water. This should be done frequently. At night the best application is an ointment of ammoniated mercury. The body should be watched for the appearance of any spots, and the moment one appears it should be attacked with the ointment. Take great care that the rash does not get into the scalp it is very difficult to get nd of with- out cutting the hair short. The possibility of catching this disease at a barber s shop forms one of the most important reasons whv a barber should be particularly careful to 'disinfect all his mugs, razors, sponges, etc I never like to see sponges used at a barber's shop; the best things to use are small squares of towelling, a fresh one bein" used for each customer these squares can be boiled before being used again. The damage done to a barber s credit by the oc- currence of even one case of this distressing malady is so great that all barbers would be well advised to dispense with sponges and exercise the greatest precautions in steri- lising their brushes
-0:- ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. Obliviscor. 1. No. Other questions can- not be answered by a simple negative or affirmative. Anxious — Heart Disease. — Read the column; 1 refer to this condition from time to time. Woodstock.—There are a great many books dealing with the rearing of childern; the best plan is to go to a book-shop and ask to see a few. A County Woman. By the time you read this the lump is probably an abscess. Go to a doctor. Angus.—Whooping cough lasts a lone time, especially in the winter; there is nothing for it but to be patient and build up the children's strength as much as pos- sible.
