Milady's Toilet Table
Moles and warts are a serious blemish
on an otherwise pretty skin. These are
sometimes merely dlscolorattons, and
sometimes covered with a hairy growth.
As the coloring matter lies deep below
the skin, a scar remains If they are re
moved by a knife or hot iron.
Electric treatment Is the best, and does
not harm the skin if properly applied. If
this Is not available, large pendant warts
may be removed by winding around them
a slUc or silver thread, and after they
drop off cauterizing the spot with sliver
nitrate. Common warts may be removed
by repeatedly applying strong acetic acid,

THE HIGH COST OP LIVING
Mayor Mltchcl, of Now York, has taken
one very decided step toward eliminating
the much discussed high cost of living.
It is undoubtedly true that nearly every
housekeeper wastes money either through
her own carelessness or the dishonesty of
tradesmen. To counteract this, the May
or's food supply committee prepared
handbills on the subject. These were
not placed on doorsteps to be thrown out
as adxertlsements They were distrib
uted nmong school children with orders
to tnke them home.
The circular Is calculated to attract at
tention. .Such slogans as "Buy for Cash,"
"Don't Buy In Small Quantities If Yon
Can Avoid It," etc , contain much good
advice In a few words. Another pamph
let is gotten out by the same people and
will be mailed anywhere by request. It

One reason why money goes so qulcklv
for the housewife Is because of short
weight. When there Is only a little dif

Tet In a year an appreciable amount of
money haa been thrown away on "noth
ing." Every kitchen should have a set
of scales, and weights should be con
firmed. "Don't order by telephone." reads an
other line. "Go to the store and see
what you are getting." There you have

The Attractive Woman
Who are the women who go sweet

plain, the foolish, the dowdy, the Inslg

this, for Ib it not patent to every one
that many of these ladles come from tha
ranks of the unintelligent, the incapable,
the silly and the plain-featured? And Is
It not equally clear that some of the best
looking, refined, clever and managing
women are neglected and overlooked by
menT One reason to account for this is
the lack of a certain "something" In them,
which "something" is none the less
powerful In attracting men, because It la
difficult to define.

ATTRACTIVE COSTUMES FOR HALLOWEEN

Whon packing, always remember to put

Ecnthg dresses, perishable waists and

A hat trunk Is not a necessity. Put
your hat on the top tray of your trunk

Dangers of Holiday Packing
Holiday makers are apt to wonder why
they so often develop a cold In the first
day or two of the holiday. It la usually
ascribed to a draught in the train, but
far more probably tha holiday cold Is
due to careless packing.
The unthinking packer will put hand
kerchief next to dirty boots and shoes
or dusty clothes laden with catarrh
produclng microbes, for even a "cold In
the head" Is due to a specific germ, and
naturally, when the handkerchiefs are
used. Infection Is highly probable.
There are still more serious dangers
in careless packing Handkerchiefs and
underllnen may become Infected with
consumption germ from soiled boots and
Hair, shaving, and tooth brushes that
have not been kept well away from any

from boots and clothes. Boots should, If

The Csarm of Cheese
Thero are so many delightful ways of
preparing cheese these days without
cooking It. The cheese cult, like a tasto
for olives, must be cultivated, only cheese
offers greater variety.

out of roquetort, with celery chopped
fine and seasoning.
Cream Swiss Is n decided novelty. It
la made of tho Imported Swiss made In
the consistency of butter. This may be
spread on bread or crackers. Pistachio
