D)RIESS FoR THE BUSINESS GIRL. A neat (Iress for the business girl is, again, the subject of one of our skletches on this page, For practical purposes the dress should be of navy serge, and the bands of trim ming on the sleeves and at the neck of black silk braid, while the little buttons and simulated button holes might be of black satin.

The fas tening is arranged at the left side, and is invisable; but, if preferred, the ornamental buttons and button holes might be used lor tie actuat fastening. The skirt is designed with a deep hem, put on with a piping, and at the neck is a vest, with collarband attached, of coarse washing lace.

There was only room for a girl to sit or lie dlown in a crouched position on the bamboo platform, and when the doors aro shut it must be ncarly or quite dark insido. They aro only allowed to come out once a day to bathe in a dish or wooden bowl placed close to each cago. They are placed in the cages whlen quite young, and miust remain there until their imnarriage.
