This is the day of the collar, and we sec it made a special feature of coats and drosses alike.. The deep sailor collar and tho spade shape am both high in favour, and ahmmt anv material may be used. I .ace, of course, and 6ns lawn make a good many collars, and the woman who is fond cf dainty needlework may often utilise some old fashioned odds and ends, for fashion is ready to accept anv form that may soggest ilaeH. It im worth while noting that a lace or muslin collar worn over the merge or doth coat keeps the neck of a white blouse dean for several days, #0 that here we Jjavo fashion hand in lmrtl with economy. Piece lace may be very effectively made into a largo collar reaching nearly to the waist be-hflal and coming over the front in rovers style to meet at the waist. The edge should be bound with a cross way piece of satin or silk to match the coat, put on carefully either by the machine (silk being used, not cotton) or invisibly by hand. 1
A tailored version of the pannier mode that offers cousidciable novelty is shown in our sketch this week. In "cponge"—tliat material which is 110 more than our old friend Turkish towelling in a glorified, edition—it would prove delightful for present wear; whilst it would be even smarter in the navy blue serge that ia still fashion's first favourite. The Robespierre note in the collar and revere, and the skilfully draped skirt are equally worthy of note—and the quaint "bowler" hat, in white and black velours is the newest idea in millinery across tlio Channel, where all the smart world is adopting this autumnal note with its sum

Salt, pepper, mustard, corkscrew, matches, methylated spirit, knives, forks, spoons, sugar, and milk arc almost certain to bo regularly wanted. Sandwiches of various kinds are al .ways appreciated, as they do not reauire plates or knjves and forks. Cresg, cucumber, potted meat, hard-boiled eggs, and tomatoes may all be used. A delicious recipe for egg sandwiches is I to mash the yolks of the hard-boiled eggs to a I powder, and to moisten with a few drops of oil j and vinegar.
