ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS,
M. V. H.:-Select one of the pretty gray-blue
cloths showing a dot., and develop it by costume
pattern No. 6057, which costs is. 8d. or 40 cents.
Finish with rows of machine-stitching, and wear
tapestry-blue dogskin gloves.
MRS. G. A. 0.:-Bustles are not now worn.
Goods like your sample would make a pretty holiday
frock for the little miss; shape it by pattern
No. 3847, price l0d. or 20 cents. Your other
question is answered in the Housekeepers'
Department of this issue.
HELENE:-There are many publications on
palmistry, any of which may be obtained through
your local bookseller. An article on that subject
appeared in "Evening Amusements at
Home " in the DELINEATOR for February, 1891.
SUBSCRIBER:-The Spring medicine to which
you refer is composed of the following ingredients:
2 ounces of Rochelle salts.
1 ounce of cream of tartar.
Pour on the drugs a quart of boiling water, and
allow the mixture to cool. Strain and bottle;
and each morning before breakfast take a wineglassful.
This cools the blood, tones the stomach,
and prevents the eruptions and irritations
which appear on the skin when the blood needs
thinning and cooling.

FIGURE No. 1.-LADIES' HAT.
FIGURE No. 1.
-LADIES' HAT.-This hat is represented in
medium-dark chip. The brim is edged with a
quilling of lace, and the crown banded with
ribbon, which is formed in a large bow in front,
a full bunch of tiny blossoms being arranged
among the loops of the bow. The hat is simple
and is a generally becoming shape.
It is a fascinating study to compare the
changing ladies' fashions during this era.
So closely were the changes made that it is
simple to date Victorian photographs
within three years if a woman is pictured.

introduced long pants in 1820.
Another question often asked about

An advertisement in an 1858 Houston
newspaper offered one for $50. This
was a good deal of money, but the machine
would last a long time and save hours on all
the plain work. If a woman lived in the city,
she could buy her yard goods at a dry goods
merchant and go to the local draper, tailor
or "modiste." These shops subscribed to all
the French and English fashion plates, and
the customer could choose her dress style.
She would go back for at least one fitting.
Country dwellers usually had a collection
of paper patterns; these could be mailordered
from magazines and traded and

While fashions were foremost in advertising, there
were also potions for ailments, answers to questions,
remedies, and advice for the lovelorn.
