Food an<l Health Notes. THE BOVRIL RECEPTION. Th3 other week I had the good fortune to be present at the great Bovril reception, held at the spacious headquarters of the company in Old- street, London, E.G. Needless to say, 1 made the most of the opportunity so generously given to thousands of guests of inspecting the various ela- borate processes employed in the manufacture of this nourishing beef extract. Wliad struck me most (and others too for that matter, ance I heard this fact commented upon from all side* was the scrupulous care taken to ensure at ea<3B and every stage of its manufac- ture an ideal cleanliness. It had never struck me so forcibly before what minute and ceaseless supervision the manufacture of a proprietary food on a large scale really involves. CLEANLINESS IN WORKING. Consider for a minute our own work in the kitchen. How great is the tendenoy at times for even the most cleanly and conscientious of us when pressed or hurried to lapse into sundry little practices which cannot be described as strictly hygienic. And if the'Se things happen in our own kitchen, how much more likely are they to occur in places set apart for the manufacture of food for the general public, unless special precautions are taken to secure the strictest cleanliness of working. CONDITIONS NECESSARY. Nothing stands out more clearly to-day than the fact that the clsanliness in the making of foods for sale to the general public ia obtainable only under pertain well-defined conditions. First, the manufacturers of the focd must be known; that is to say, the article offered for sale must be largely advertised and branded with the full name and adiress of the firm making it, as a guarantee. of good faith. Secondly, the consti- tuents of the food must be of the best quality, and thair nature plainly stated on the packet or tin; and this statement again be confirmed by the report of an independent public analyst. hirdly, the factories in question must be thrown iipen freely to the inspection of the public. fourthly, there must be, regardless of expense, 4 the most elaborate and perfect plant that can be devised laid down in order to ensure the product not being touched by hand at any stage of its manufacture. Fifthly, there must be clean lofty Weil-ventilated rooms for this plant to run in, and & full competent staff of healthy well-cared for employees pledged to see that the ideal condition? of cleanliness laid down aro loyally carried out. THE CAPITAL REQUIRED. Necessarily these conditions tend to throw the manufacture of proprietary foods more and more into he hands of the firms who have a large working capital at their back. The small man can neither lay down this expensive plant, nor rent the spacious premises demanded by the hy pienio conditions of manufacture. However great his desire may be to make a cleanly and wholesome product, he cannot do so, since he is dnven continually by the want of space and by the imperfect machinery he uses into sundry elo\enly and uncleanly practices. We see this often enough in domestic life. tVhat a difference, for instance, between the Cleanliness and order that rules in a well-equipped kitchen of a private mansion, and that state of muddle and disorder whioh characterises the underground kitohjn of a third-rate restaurant, where there are never utensils and vessels enough for cleanly honest work to be done, and where a staff of ill-paid discontented workers crowd lupon each other with no other object than to get through their appointed task with the great- est possible dispaton. OTHER GENUINE PRODUCTS. Bearing these facts in mind, it is therefore not at all strange to find that all our largely adver- tised fooda are made by firms who deal honestly and openly with the public in .-pact to this question of cleanliness. Note, for in- stance, how the manufacture of coooa in Eng- land has drifted almost entirely of late years into the hands of a few firms who have specialised on a scientific machinery a healthy work room, and a wall-paid and contented staff, whose inte- rest is one with the firm of keeping their product from start to finish ideally pure. AtBourneville We havo in Messrs Cadbury'a establishment one of the best equipped and moat healthy factories in the world, and one from which nothing but the purest and most wholesome products can pos- Biblv issue. All that is done uy this enterprising firm in their model villagj and factory for the vc-lfare and comfort of their employees is done largely for the safety of the public, since it sec u res the loyal oo-operation of the entire staff in that work to iVhich the firm has set its hand of putting the best and purest beverage of its kind on the market Tho same thing obtains throughout the food world generally. The manufacture of cereal foods affords yet another very striking instance of the same tendency. Aõ Battle Creek, Michigan, U.S.A., r.he Grape-Nitte Co. have established a ttjc del factory and village that are run on very similar lines to those of Bournevillc. There has Leen the san'e original expensive outlay on a scientific plant and commodious premises, which entirely does away with any handling of the product from the first storing of the raw wheat and barley, up to the packing of the well-cooked Joed into those yellow cartons which now find their way into ov-.ry quarter of the globe. And side by sido with this attention to perfection of irachinery. to ventilation, and to ideal cleanliness of the wjrkrooms &nd stores, the company have given every possible thought to the comfort and "oli-being of their workpeople. It is not sur- prising, therefore, to find that they have secured the loyal co-operation of their entire staff, nu- merous though it is, and have gathered around them employees who are as keenly interested as are the heads of the firm themselves in making Grape-Nuts the most. wholesome as well as the most nourishing of all cereal foods. WHY SUBSTITUTES FAIL. Footts made under these conditions can never be ousted from the hold they have on the public favour. Substitutes from time to time may be Put upon the market, but people realise that the maker of substitutes observes none of these ideal conditions of cleanliness in manufacturing his product. His money never goes to the purchase of an elaborate and expensive scientific plant, and the renting of premises spacious enough to secure oleanly and wholesome conditions of worklng for his staff. Neither is there any intelligent co- operation on the part of his underpaid employees to ensure that nothing but the best and purest food of its kind is being turned out. And be- causo the public fully realises all this, the public very wisely fights shy of the imitative product, and pins its faith to the genuine article which al- ways bears upon its face the hall mark of genu- ine purity and wholesomeness.

A GRAMOPHONE "RECORE).Ig Mr E. T. L. Williams, who presided at the annual meeting of the Gramophone and Type- writer, Limited, had a very pleasant task. In congratulating the shareholders on the most suc- cessful year's trading they had yet enjoyed, he was able to point to the fact thai in Hie seven years of its existence the company had earned pearly £ 1,300,000, or considerably more than double tho total capital, and had actually returned dividends the full value of its shares with a 20 per cent. bonus. The expansion of the busi- ness, too, still continues, and but for the heavy contmitments on new works and factories the distriljutions might haVe been even larger. Mr ^illfams was able to announce that the sales for the first threo months of the current year showed increase of just under 20 per cont., and "it looks," he added, "very much as if wo were out Or a nevv record." The shareholders will wait to usten to that recordat the next annual meet- with feelings of pleasurable anticipation.— financial News." ¡-=

HAVE YOU ANY SKIN DISEASE ? Zam-Buk, the Scientific Healer. The Importance of Watching 'Simple' Sores. 0, The skin is both a striking factor of beauty and an important excretory organ, carrying out of the body, through perspiration, offete and waste material that would inevitably prove fatal if allowed to remain. According to Sir Erasmus Wilson, the pores by which this perspiration is carried on average 3528 to the square inch of skin surface. Krause put the total number over the who.e body at 3,381,248. These glands, placed altogether, would make an orifice twice the size of the human mouth. Little wonder, therefore, that a diseased skin has a bad effect on the general health. Little wonder, too, that Zam-Buk, tho well-known skin- cure, by cleansing the pores and dispelling dis- ease, is often said, to improve bodily health at the same time. For in Zam-Buk it is conceded that, we have a balm of rare richness and re- markable skin-renewing power.. It is a prepaTation which puts one in mind of the many excellent oils and balms used by the Grecian ladies of fashion in bygone days, who, if they took pride in anything, certainly bestowed every pain and attention to ensure a soft, smooth, and healthy skin. In .reoent years the anxiety to produce the beauty of skin that is only "skin deep"—and not always th-at-lial led to the introduction of ointments, salves, and embrocations which generally possess one or two gra.vo objections. These common preparations are generally com- posed of rancid fats and mineral poisons; and they arc uselegs either from the more fact of their ooarseness, and hence the inability of the skin to absorb them, or from the fact that their in- gredients, if partially absorbed, are of BuCih a nature as to produce negative or even harmful results. Compounds of mercury, zinc, lead, and bismuth are examples of these risky and unde- pendable preparations. Zam-Buk, on the other hand, is a refined balm, prepared direct from the juices and balsams of certain valuable medicinal herbs; and the manner of the combination of theee juices is such as to develop their. rare skin- curing and skin-healing properties to a point neither attained nor attempted by any ordinary salve or ointment. Daily anointings of your skin with Zam-Buk wiJl restore and maintain it in good health and fortify it against the assaults of the ever-present germs that strive to gain a hold on the gyskitn. Zam-Buk has revolutionised existing methods of heating cuts, bruises, burns, scalds, chapped hands, cold-sores, chafing, in treating in a new and effective way the worst case of eczema, piles, ulcers, bad legs, blood-poisoning, festering, psoriasis, scurf, ringworm, children's scalp troubles, sores on the back, and all those inflamed, burning, irritable, and diseased oon- ditions of the human rkin. Zam Buk draws disease out of the skin and tissues; it kills miorobos, and ends all inflamma- tion and fostering; and after purifying a wound or sore, grows new healthy skin in a quick and marvellous manner.

CONWAY itUBAli DlbHUOX COUNCIL. A SERIES OF COMPLAINTS. The monthly meeting of the Council was held 0:1 Friday, Mr liugu owoji (chairman) presided, and the other meluoars present were Messrs J. W. Raynes, Rogers Jones, Robert Roberts, Ben. Fisher. W. F. Jones, Ed. Williams, Ovvoai Wil- liams, Richard Jones, and E. J. Evans, together with the Clerk (Mr T. E. Parry), the Sanitary Inspector (Mr Levi John), the itoad Surveyor (Mr John Davies), and other officials. THE CONDITION OF THE ROADS. Mr Robert Roberts called attention to the state of the roads in the district, and suggested that th'3 surveyor should be instructed to have tne roads scraped at this time of the year. The Surveyor said the men were now engagec upon the work. Mr Rogers Jones thought the roads in the dis trict would compare very favourably with the county roads; in fact they were much better. Mr Fisher said the Denbighshire roads were a disgrace to tho county. THE FINANCIAL POSITION. It was reported that the total receipts during the month wore 286 6s lid, which, together with a balance due to tho Council on September 30th of E1874 18s 3d, amounted to 1;1961 5s 2d. The payments were L120 13s 9d, thus leaving a balance due to the Council of J61840 11s 5d, The receipts of the Glanconway District Council were jS44 lls 3d, which, with a balance due on Septem- ber 30th of E115 8s, amounted to JB159 19s 3d; and the payments were F,22 19s 5d. leaving a balance due to the Council of E136 19s lOd. COMPLAINTS FROM PENMAENRIIOS. The Sanitary Inspector reported that he had received several complaints respecting the keep- ing of swine at Pcnmaenrhos,and had asked some of the persons concerned to discontinue keeping pigs during the summer months, but it was a general practice throughout the village during trie winter. Tho Clerk read letters from Mrs Jane Morris and Mr Hugh Hughes, stating that they had been apprised of the intention of the Council to close some of the styes in the district. They regretted this should be so because pig-keeping was a source of substantial assistance to them, and that 'here could be no nuisance so long as care was taken to keep the styes clean and dry. With the winter approaching such a step would bi a great hardship upon them. Upon the proposition of Mr Raynes, seconded by Mr Ed. Williams, it was decided to serve notices that if the places were not kept clean the Council wauld take the necessary steps to have tho styes closed ALLEGED RIVER POLLUTION AT ROEWEN. A letter was read from a Roewen resident complaining that the river was being polluted by the deposit of rubbish therein, and pointing out that the river was the only source from which the children of the Council school obtained their drinking water. Mr Robert Roberts suggested that a public notice should bo put up cautioning people against depositing rubbish in the sl.r0am. Mr Fisher thought such a notice would be futile as, no doubt, it would be ignored. The matter was referred to the Sanitary In- spector. A COLWYN BAY NUISANCE. With regard to the Colwyn Bay refuse tip, the Sanitary Inspector reported that none of tho re- commendations of the medical officer had been carried out, and that everything was the same as when the committee visited the place; except that, the heap was getting larger, and the nuisance increasing accordingly. -u-

It was reported by the Master that there were in the Workhouse that day 110 inmates, as against 1:t5 last year at the same period, and that 179 vagrants had been relieved during the fortnight, an increase of 3S on the total at the corresponding period. T'lis was the first increase that had taken place for some time. GIFT TO THE CHAPEL. In with the Workhouse Chapel, the Master reported that the family of the J ate Mr T. Ilowe.i Roberts had presented a very handsome Bible and a v te ot thanks for the gift was passed. RHIXi AND ITS REPRESENTATION ON THE ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE. Notice had been given of the vacancy caused on the Assessment. Committee by the l'e:7¡,'ment of Mr Griffith, oi Lkiiiifair. Mr S. Perks said that the question of the repre- sentation oil the Assessment Uomminee had been discussed on several occasions, and they would re- members that 1;2 had r.-peatedly strongly advocated the claims of Rhyl to an >ther representative. In the past the only reason for refusing another member was that each parish should be represented. On that principle he did not object t> if, but those who attended the Assessment Committee knew quite well that there was very little bll3ine¡; in connection with some parishes, and it was nut right to bring gentlemen from a considerable distance, whereas the business from Ithyl was often very heavy. The Clerk- had said that nearly 50 per cent. of the appeals came from Rhyl. He (the speaker) believed it was even more than that. In view of that fact it was very inconvenient to have but two representatives, as one might, be laid uv or otherwise unabie to attend. If they had three members tiiev cmiid rely oil two bens? t¡¡,-r. From a business point of view it waa desuable t. have men oil the committee wiio under- stood the value oi property in the town of lUiyl, and he had pleasure in proposing that Mr J, Frimston b appointed in the place of Mr Griffith. Mr Robeit Jones (Prestatyn) seconded and said that although they were advocating increased representa- tion tor Rhyl, it could not be said that the interest of the outlying parishes would be overlooked. He was sure it wa3 understood that business men would look alti-r the interests of the Union generailv, but on the ground of expediency he advocated the appoint ment of Mr Frimston. The Hev, L)dwick Ems hoped that Mr Frim?ton would not. tiiink ne was °PlI0siug him an personal ground. as he had every respect for Mr Frimston but the had to remember that neither Bettw3, IJan- ddulas, nor Llanfair were represented on the WIll- mittee. Mr Frimston, as a town member, would naturally know more about town property than of country houses, and he would be a-pt to consider all cases oil the town basis. Iff, feit that the rural population of the Union should be represented and, as tlie vacancy occurred in the rural representation! he moved that Mr ltob?rt Davies, of Bettws, be appointed to that Jlosit ¡"II. Mr J. It. Ellirf: Abergele is not represented. Mr Eva-ns: Yes it is by Mr Roberts. I the appointment of Mr Davies, and I do nut think we could make a b'tfer selection. Mr Ilugii Edwards But did the late member ever attend? The Rev. L. Ellis: That, has nothing to do with it. We are talking of principle. Mr Edwards But that has something to do with it. If the late member did not attend, you will be in no worse position by having a Uh.vl man. Mr Batho: Mr Frimston is not ignorant of the value, of country property. He was brought up in the country and knows the country district well. Mr John Roberts said he would certainly oppose the taking of a representative from Denbighshire and putting in a Flintshire man. Rhyl had two members, while other places had none. The Vice-Chairman Khyl used h have three. Mr Roberts And I am the only mail from the Abergele district. The urban portion has no repre- I sentative. I think that the Abergele Urban District should al30 'nave a representative. I am surprised that Rhyl should ask for another. Mr Gunner said they should remember that Rhyl had a larger population, as well as a greater rateable value than any other pari, of !he Unjon. Mr Hugh Williams supported Mr Davies. On a vote being taken the result, showed that Mr Davies secured ten votes Mr Frimston nine, and there were five neutrals. The names were as fallows Mr Davies. the Rev. L. Ellis, Messrs Evans Roberts Davies. Rees, Gri'l'ths H. Williams, Wm. Jones,' Morris, and J. R. Ellis. Mr Frimston Messrs J. E. Jones, G. Williams Roberts Jones, Robert Jones, Gunner, Perks, 'LJpw. Evans Batho. and Edwards. Neutral The Chairman. Mrs Gee Miss Jones, Messrs Wrn. Williams, and Frimston. GRANT UNDER THE AGRICULTURAL RATINGS ACT. The Clerk reported the receipt of £6.1:1 lOs 7d from the Government, under the Agricultural Eatings Act. THE LATE MR HOWES ROBERTS. The Chairman referred to the great loss the Board has sustained by the death of the late Mr T. Howes R (berts with whom he said he had been associated since childhood. The deceased had been a ven- use- ful member of the Board, and most willing to do anything he had been asked. In fact, if t.li<_re was anything wanted doing they had only to ask -lie:i* late colleague, and he did it (Hear hear). He moved a vote of sympathy and condolence with the familv of the deceased. The Viee-Ohairman asked to be allowed to second the motion and said he had great respect for the deceased. If there was one fault to be found with him, it was that, when in the chair, he was too lenient, and did not like toO stup them talking, which was a bad fiiilt in any chairman. (Laughter). However, they would greatly miss Mr Roberts. and he had to expresa regret that he had been unab!e to attend the funeral. The vAe uf sympathy was carried, all presf-lit upstinding. IMPROVEMENTS IN THE WORKHOUSE. Mr Batho pointed out that the Local Government B at-d had drawn their attention to the insanitary condition of the men's day room in the Workhouse and certain alterations had been car- ried out. It was found that when tlie wash bowls were removed that the wood and other work waa rotten and the Committee suggested replacing them with new material. It would not cost more than R.-) or £ o, and he moved that the work be done. Mr Gunner seconded, but Mr John Roberts thought the cost was excessive. H.-wever the Board resolved to have the work carried through.

A SMART SEAL COAT. Sealskin seems to be the fashionable fur this winter; at any rate, for the achievement of coats, whether long or short. After several sea- sons of undeserved neglect, the smart mondaine has taken this beautiful fur into her warmest affections, and seems to think her wardrobe in- complete without at least one sealskin garment. The modish little coat pictured in our sketch is A SMART LITTLE COAT OF BEALSKTX. carried out, in this becoming pelt, and illustrates the very ne-vest ideas on the subject of fur coats. Of hip-length, this little coat is cut perfectly straight-fitting in front, but is what one might call a close semi-fit in the back, and has the merest suspicion of Empire effect in the slightly- shortened waist-line. From the neck turns back a plain, round collar of the fur, the gauntlet cuffs on tho moderate-sized sleeves being also carried out in sealskin. The coat fastens down the front with three immense fur-covered but- tons, heavy silk cord loops taking the place of buttonholes. The same design might be very effectively realised in musquash, squirrel, or mole, in which furs it would, of course, be a much less costly garment. SMART BUT SIMPLE AFTERNOON FROCK. Most women nowadays are even more particu- lar to look well and nicely dressed indoors than in the street. Of course, the blouse is a great stand-by for the girl of small means, but 1 al- ways think that the addition of one complete in- door frock to the wardrobe may be looked upon in the light of a distinct eccnomy. With a good pattern, any woman who is accustomed to make her own blouses should be able to successfully manage a simple house frock. The material need not be expensive, and there is more wear to be got out of a whole dress than out of three or four blouses. For instance, the other day I saw a charming little frock of the simplest and most inexpensive type. The material in which it was realised was a very light-weight serge, in colour a beautiful rich amethyst. The bodice, though of pinafore shape, was rather novel in cut, being arranged with a succession of wee pleats in front which are hidden by large buttons covered with amethyst ribbon. Round the top of the pinafore was arranged a plain band of soft amethyst satin ribbon, similar ribbon forming the waist-band and finishing the full length, and very slightly rucked sleeves. Inside the opening above the bodicei was arranged a square-cut vest of Irish crochet in a soft old-lace tone, beneath which ap- peared a small chemisette of tucked ivory net, which was finished with a well-boned neckband. I The skirt was perfectly plain, with plenty of flaro at the bottom, and had as sole ornament a band of the satin ribbon placed at the top of the hem. CONCERNING NECKBANDS. There is no doubt that the collar-band is rapidly growing in height. All the latest model gowns are finished with extremely ihigh and beau- tifully-fitted neck-bands, which are neatly and firmly boned to keep them in proper position. Even the stock tie subscribes to this mode, the newest examples being carried out in black satin of a rather dull, soft make, which is swathed round the throat almost up to the ears-the close boning inside keeping it to its full height—and finished in front with the most minute of black satin bows. Not content with this, many of these new stocks are completed by a tiny box-pleated frill of clear muslin, which just shows above the top of the neck-band with the quaintest and most ontlcing effect. These little box-pleated frillings, TWO SMART NEW HATS I have suddenly roaTLsed that in the ardour of recording the many charming new developments in gown and costume w.rilch have followed in such quick succession during the last few weeks I have totally neglected tho subject of millinery. A most important omission, for really the new hats form one of the most important, if not the most important item in modish attire just now. How- ever, the two extremely smart ohapeaux which our artist has sketched for us this week should amply repair anj emission, for they are both irodish and up-to-date in style, The first hat, pictured at the top of the page, is carried out in extremely iin soft felt of a deep, rich bliie shade, the shape bring that picturesque cress between a cowboy's slouch and a big Cava- lier hat which is so popular jus now. Right in front is /en:tied I huge rosette of beautifully soft velvet, of dark blue colour, shot with an iridcscent green. From this knot, on the right side of the hat, 13 carried a loose, wide plait of the velvet, wilich is carried right round to the back. On the left side is arranged an enormous cluster of soft wings, which shade in most fas- oinating fashion, from a deep, ricli blue up to an almost emerald tone, all sorts of exquisite tor- quoise, lapis lazulia and malachite tones being skilfully blended together in this lovely plumage. Hat number two is of rather a different type, the shape itsef, though graceful and becoming being of a rather stiffer and more "set" de- scriplOn, with a dip to the front, and a slightly upturne i brim on the left. side. In this case the shape is realissd in a very glossy, silky beaver of a deep green tone. Round the rather high crown is folded a band of thick black satin, the folds of which are caught at, the back by a big jet buckle. In front, and a little to the left, is arranged an enormous cluster of coq's plumage shading from black to an iridescent green and extremely bright and glossy in effect. A lining of black satin completes this modish and very distinguished chapeau. by the way, seem likely to become quite a feature of our attire during the next few months, nearly a-tl the model gowns and blouses being finished at the throat with something of the sort. For or- dinary wear the frills are usually carried out in net, Valenciennes, lace, or tulle, but for mourn- ing lisso or crepe-de-chine is the correct thing. VELVET SLEEVES IN VOGUE. I think I told my readers some little time ago that one of the coming modes would be the alliance of velvet sleeves with gowns of plain, fine faced clorh. Well, my prediction has mora than justified itself, for all the leading couturieres of both London and Paris are exploiting the idea for all it is worth. In many cases the velvet ileevos, which are invariably of the exact shade of tho gown with which they are allied, are very slightly rucked, cut a little full at the shoulder, but clinging closely below the elbow, and are long enough to come down almost to the knuckles As an alternative, there is a velvet sleeve which is perfectly plain, has the merest suspicion cf fulness at t.he shoulder, and is ekin- tight below the elbow, fastening up the back of tli- arm with a row of pretty buttons. Both sleeves are extremely picturesque, as well as wonderfully becoming to the majority of women. CURIOUS MILLINER IAL EFFECTS. Incongruity seems to be the salient feature of many of the newest and most modish hats. For instance, I noticed yesterday several extremely smart models of rough, but very silky, beaver, with short upturned brim in front, and much wider and slightly drooping brim at the back, bound all round with a half-inch strapping of taffetas in exactly the same shade. On this hat, which one would reasonably expect to find trimmed with velvet, wings, feathers, or quills, was placed as sole trimming a huge bow of spotted Malines tulle, with immense and well wired loops standing smartly out on either side of atafieta.3 covered buckle. Though curious, the effect was really very good, and I fancy we shall see a good deal of this type of chapeau during tha next few weeks. A WORD ABOUT THE NEW SCARVES. The ubiquitous scarf is still as indispensable an item of our attire as ever, and daily fresh and delightful examples are added to the already long list of novelties. Quite the latest idea in this line is a very long, wide scarf of palest pink chiffon, just the colour of the lining of a sea-shell, which is edged all round by a border of tiny hanging rosebuds, carried out in silk of the real rose shades. In addition to these wee buds, a I huge full-blown silken rose is placed about fifteen inches from either end of the scarf, the folds of the chiffon being drawn together there and held in place by these mammoth flowers. The effect is delightfully pretty and dainty, and the scarf is admirably fitted to servo as a Tight wrap to wear in a ball-room, theatre, or concert-hall. StLK AND SILKY FABRICS. One cannot help being struck with the huge anu.unt of silk shown and i resumably worn. At least one might rather say, silk and silky fabrics. Perhaps i-ilrashe^i is one of the nicest linings one can choos) at present. It wears better than silk and has a loveiv appearance. For evening wear we still use the white silk petticoat, or failing that w;) pi.i our faith to white still in some of these noro durable stuffs. They are all effective and lock very dainty This year there would appear to be a decided revival in white flannel petti- coats. FEATHER BOAS. Ostrich feather boas are in high favour, and this accounts to a great extent for the higher price of these plumes. For the person with a limited purse there are marabout boas that are soft and fluffy, particularly well suited for even- ing wear. Even shoulder capes are now made of what is technically known as "clipped" ostrich feathers, and muffs of marabout have been seen. The feather boa is one of the few items of dress that has enjoyed a medical pronouncement of approval. A USEFUL WALKING SKIRT. Our second sketch this week pictures a neat and very smart walking skirt, just the thing for rCI se or street wear during the winter. Any firm woollen material w7Ti s?rve admirably for the realisation of this design, but, as the skirt is to SMART PLEATED WALKING SKIRT, SUITABLE FOR 1nWE. TWEED. CLOTH. OR FRIEZE be unlined, it would be wise to choose a fabrio of not too light weight. Serge, tweed, freeze, > and cloth are all specially good materials for this s purpose, as they do not "give" too much, and wear excellently. The skirt is arranged with a box-pleat, in front and a succession of inverted i pleats all round the hips, these pleats being re- leased just below the hip, and firmly pressed to make them hang in proper folds. This model will require four and three-quarter yards of 44-in. material for its realisation.
