Lay asido yonr sandals, nightdress, toilet articles, medicines and shoe dressing for yonr traveling bag. It is wise to take an umbrella in the hand. Borne strap the snnshade to this, bnt in caso of a shower yon would not know whafc í to do with the stinshade, so it is best to put the latter into the trnnk. Those with adjustable handles are best for packing. Pack in layers, having everything aa flat as possible. This economizes room. All delicate apparel should be wrapped Keparately in tissue paper or towels, and sleeves of fine gowns should be etuffed ont with newspapers, also the crowns of h&ts aud bonnets, after whioh they may be pinned (hat pine) to the bottom or sidea of hat box to keep them, froru shaking about. Aigrets und otber steeple higa adorutaeuts may be detached, thea fastened on afterward. Fold the front bieadth of skirt in its crease, then it will not look mossed. It is not of great importance if the other breadtba ar creased. They soon shake ont. Never don ble over the bottom. of skirt if it is longer than the trnnk.
