hard to get here. Don't you ever think
that you would like to travel and see a
little bit of life?"

With a wistful little sigh, she set about
the business of potato paring. Her older
sister clattered round the kitchen.
A sudden knock came to the door. It
was the mall carrier, and he had a let

It was addressed to Delia, and she open

Her cheeks flushed while she read It,

Milady's Toilet Table
Face powder Is so universally used now
adays that It pays to use a good brand.
This Is very hard to decide upon for the
inexperienced, but there are certain quali
ties all good powders should have.
First of all. It should be very finely i
pulverized. Nothing clogs up the pores so
quickly as a coarse face powder. This
will block up the mouths of the tiny skin
glands and blackheads will result. Also,
beware of the hlghlv perfumed powder.
These "loud" perfumes are often put In
to disguise the odor of inferior chemical
products The skin will be greatly Irri
tated by these cheap Imitations.
The careful woman who wants to have
her face powder strictly pure can have
one made of the following Ingredients:
Bismuth subcdrbonate. 1 drachm; zlno
oxide, 4 drachms; French chalk, 3 ounces;
corn flour. 1 ounce: attar of roses, 2 drops;
carmine, a sufficiency.
Mako thl Into a very fine, well-mixed
powder. This is for the light complexion.
A good brunett powder is composed of:
White talc, 3 ounces: fine kaolin. 1
ounce, powdered orris, IIJ drachms; oil
of ylang-ylang, t drops, cadmium yellow,
This gives the creamy effect so popular
Bachelors eulogize the Joys of single
blessedness In public and then sneak
"home" and confess It's a lie.
To tell lies successfully, remember to
cultivate a very good memory.
The proper salutation for a Standard OH
roan, Is, "J hope you're, feeling oil right."
They say the greatest thing In life Is to
he In love. That might mean mostly any
thin?. Don't blame a girl for holding on to a
delusion. He may be alright when you
get to know him.

down the road once more and then she
saw the tlgure of a man appearing In the

recognized, even at that long distance, her
cavalier of the Philadelphia visit. Hast

Yes, she wns right, and It was he! He

A LITTLE FROCK

If hatf a dozen dinners of your friends
and mine were laid out on a. table with
out any name we could probably pick
out which was the tplcal dinner of tho
Joneses or the Browns or the Smiths.
By this I mean that In many families
there Is a tendency to get Into a tut In
tho matter of the kind of meals. I
know one family where they don't think
It Is dinner unless they have a quantity
of meat with a thick brown gravy;
another family thinks It's a poor meal

It will only tuko four yards, and the
seams can be pressed by any tailor. Tho
most ordinary needlewoman needn't fear
this a work beyond her powers, and the
result Is delightful. It has a certain style,
too, all Its own.
In the Sick Room
A few hints for those who are around
the sick room will not be amiss.
NeTer wake a patient to give medicines
or food except by the doctor's orders.
Serve all meals daintily, varying the
chlnaware as well as the food.
Settling for the night takes time, so
start early before the patient Is all UredJ
Remember that an ordinary conversa
tion is not half so disturbing to tin
patient as a whisper.
Keep tho room clean by dusting with
a damp cloth, then a day duster; wring
out the oloth In water with a few drops
of turpentine In It.
Select the sunniest room, nave the
windows opened easily at the top and
bottom, and see that they do not rattle,
and the hinges and lock of the door oiled.
Noises are tiring
Don't furnish the room too much Re.
move all superfluous boxes and baskets,
and all ornaments which require dusting
Have a plant of some kind near the
patient during the daytime. Be sure to
take It out at night, however.
Renovating Venetian Blinds
Untie the knot at the bottom of the
blind, draw out the cords at the top and
then take out the laths from the ladders
Dust the lath thoroughly: then put some
finely-powdered purnicestone on a soapy
flannel and rub the laths straight along
from end to end on both sides, rinsing
the flannel frequently. Wash eaoh lath
In cold, clear water, and at once dry with
a soft oloth. Then rub a little linseed oil
on both sides of each lath. When hung
up the blinds will look like new.
One and a half tablespoonfuls of cocoa,
2 tablespoonfuls sugar, 2 cupfuls of boil
ing water, 2 cupfuls of milk and a few
grains of salt Scald the milk, mix sugar,
cocoa and salt, add half of the water.
Stir smooth, then add the remainder and
let boll for two mlnutea. Add the scalded
iiiilk and serve.

OF DECIDED CHARM
husbands feel unhappy If a single meal
should lack potatoes.
I lived for three years In an Institu
tional boarding houto where tho girls
had dubbed the ever-present dally
creamed potatoes "library paste" and
where wo threatened to go out on strike
If wo had pork chops more than three
times a week. Ah I nnalyzo tho matter
It seems to me not so much a lack of
knowledge on tho part of housewives
a a to what Is new and changeful In the
mi nil, but an unwillingness on the part
of somo members of tho family to depart
from what thoy llko In n meal.
When I showed a young frlnd how
to make a beef loaf she was delighted,
but a short while later told me her
brothers, for whom sho was keeping
house, infused to eat It. Similarly,
guests at my homo have enjoyed a mock
duck of Inexpensive round steak, but
havo remarked that such and such a
member of the family would not eat
I think ono of the best Influences now
at work l.s tho tendency nmong many to
ndopt the foods and dishes of other coun
tries Into their menu from tlmo to time.
How much truth country can give to the
other. If we will inly let It! The goulash
of Hungary, tho spaghetti of tho Italian,
the unsurpassed broth of Scotland, the
Chinese method of cooking rlco nnd hosts
of dishes from France teach housewives
of other nations new Ideas, new wnys of
serving and new food combinations. H
is tor this reason that the shelf In tho
kitchen should Include volumes describing
dishes of other lands. Mnny such are on
the market. Wp have nn "All Around the
World Cook Book," "A Saucepan from
Over tho Sea" nnd others
I think It would be a good plan If nn
rntirely new dish were made nnd added
to tho menu at least once a week. Not
until ono begins to ferret out the econo
my nnd ttaor of Mrange dishes dots she
reallzo that her own routine of roast and
chops Is not only expensive hut monoto
nous. Tho snme vegetable which we serve
unvarjlngly with a cream sauce, like
asparagus or onions, may actually be a
new egctnhle If served with a curry or
vinegar dressing. Rice, which Is ordi
narily pasty and apparently a cereal fitted
only for children, becomes with tomatoes,
peppers, etc., a staple dish suitable for
Perlmps one of the worst criticisms of
average home couklng is Its monotony,
particularly In the methods of serving. It
Is In these details that the hotel is often
superior to the home. What we need first
is a willingness on tho part of members
of the family to try to eat the same
foods served In a new way; and, next, a
desire on the part of the housewife to
increase her knowledge so that she can
havo placed before her family differing
and appetizing dishes which do not fall
into the same monotonous round. In
deed, those couples I know whose little
dinners are most successful are not those
who spend a great deal or who serve
the tjplcal standard meal from soup to
nuts, but who offer one or two dishes
so original or well cooked that they are
not only enough for an entire meal, but
that their variety gives the appetizing
touch necessary to the enjoyment of any

Use of Plaids as an Established
Fashion Offers Opportunity for Ex
ploitation in Many Attractive Ways.
Frocks Can Be Made Over to
Look Like New.
The use of plaids In combination with
materials of solid color is being exploited
In many attractive ways. The fact that
It 13 an established fashion opens up
unusual opportunities for the making
over of frocks for the big and the little
so Hint they wilt look like new creations.
The little girl's costume sketched to
day can be made up In two ways, cither
to servo as n Sunday frock or an every
day rough-and-ready one. In the latter
case, dark blue or brown or green serge
and a woolen plnld that harmonizes with
tho color chosen would be the most ap
It would make n distinctly dressy little
frock If velvet and silk were used to
gether. The kilted skirt Is such a dimin
utive ono that It would not require
many yards of silk, even In the very
narrow widths. The sleeveless Jacket In
velvet or In fine broadcloth would not
be an Item of heavy expense, and It la
designed on such absolutely simple lines
that it would lend Itself easily to home
The front of the coat Is cut away to
show the tied cutis of tho ribbon sash.
A satin ilbbon would harmonize with a
vclxet Jacket, but If broadcloth Is used
for tho coat, then it velvet ribbon would
show off to advantage.
This Is a detail, however, that might
be omitted without spoiling tho effective
ness of the dress. Just a straight little
Jacket would be pretty enough, certainly,
for everyday wear.
The gulmpes, made of sheer lawn or
muslin, could be simplified or elaborated,
according to Individual taste or the occa
sion for which it Is Intended. A few
hand run tucks and scalloped col
lars and cuffs add so much real beauty
that It la well worth the trouble to any
one whose tastes run In this direction.
Speaking of the possibilities of tartans
where making over Is, concerned, an old
serge frock can be treated In such a way
that It will look like a reincarnation with
not n trace visible of Its former exist
ence. Serge can be washed nnd Ironed, regu
larly tubbed, and come out, not shining,
but looking ns It did in the original bolt.
Sash or girdle and collar and cuffs of
plaid silk will give the plainest frock a
modish air, and If It should be a little
bit worn, tho bright plald will deceive
the eye Into thinking It qulto new.
A drop skirt of plaid, with u long tunic
of the plain color, and plald sleeves In a
plain basque will work a transformation
without much expense or trouble.
Plaids, the tartans of all the famous
clans, nre on the crest of fashion's wave
this winter, and Indoors or out, the
bright colors add quite definitely to the
gnlcty of the general scheme of things.
