another potent and compelling factor that

p When Cutting Out
If I'm using a good material I always
cut out the blouso first In muslin. I tack
and fit this, and if it Is all right, I can
then cut tho material without any fear
that it may be a failure.
The Importance of Tacking
"A blouso well tacked Is half made," say
professionals. I used to "run up" mine in
tho most careless manner, and bo rnther
proud of tho fact that I'd done it with
out tacking a stitch, In spite of the fact
that my things somehow never looked
right. I know better now. You simply
. must tack carefully It you want a thing
to fit and set really well.
Healing Value of
. Good Cheer
The curative value of good cheer Is
receiving o great deal of attention Just
now. Tho surgeons connected with ono
of tho clinics at Johns Hopkins Unlver-
t slty havo taken quite seriously to pro
ducing good cheer for their patients.
They realize now what tho people them
selves are beginning to suspect that
l laughter is a decided and definite tonic,
and more wldespreadlng in Its effects
than cardemon comp. or Iron.
The walla of this clinic are lined with
good cheer placards, a graphophone
plays gay music, humorous books and
magazines abound nnd the nurses them-
Li selves are thoroughly trained for their
part In tho cheering process. It may
K sound rather as if cheer was forced upon
t, people, but this is not so. Nervous
cases, and especially those affected with
any form of mental trouble and melan
cholia, show wonderful Improvement
after a. very short stay In this atmos
phere. This stands to reason. The thinking
man or woman sees the power of laugh
ter on every side. Christian Science will
never do as much as laughter has dona
already towards eliminating both Imag
inary and real ills. Babies laugh and de
velop their lungs, tho blood moves and
jthey become strong and healthy. The
child who laughs Is rarely ill, and when
sho doesn't It Is so noticeable that
mother knows enough to take the little
indisposition In time.
Not very long ago It wjis considered
quits heartless to enter a sick room with
out a saddened expression or a long
face. But that has all been changed.
r Nurses nowadays entertain their pa
ir ttents with humorous anecdotes, the
doctor has a cheery, wholesome way that
fairly forces renewed hope Into the dis
couraged patient. Of course, serious Ill
nesses will always have to be treated seri
ously, for In the most optimistic light
they are always a trying thing, but a
good many "real" Illnesses when treated
with a smile suddenly assume the aspect
I' of phantoms.

tweed or covert cloth that is only suit

But mado of one of the beautiful woolens
now manufactured and finished with a
fur collar, tho same coat will serve for
wear by day and by night.
The picture today shows a one-plcce

novel and rather pleasing feature In the

extends from the waist line to a point
almost as high as the very wide girdle.

prising to hear these girls lament tho
fact thnt they can find nothing to do.

A Useful Hint
Never throw away the water In which
fish, rice, macaroni, or dried vegetables
are boiled. Fish water makes a good
stock for white soup; macaroni and rice
water can either be used as thin starch
Just to stiffen tho laundry articles a
very little or added to soup or puddings.
Dried vegetable water should be allowed
to cool and then be used for soaking
the next instalment of vegetables, so that
any nourishment which it contains may
go back Into the second set of them in
stead of being entirely wasted.
Beat well together an ounce ot flour,
a dessert spoonful of sifted sugar, a gill
of warm milk and two eggs; then add a
few drops of essence of lemon and two
ounces of butter. Have ready some but
tered saucers, pour the mixture Into these
and bake for 20 minutes; serve piled up
sprinkled with sugar.
Clothes pins should be scrubbed In hot
soap and water and boiled for 3D min
utes, then taken out and allowed to drain
till dry. They will last much longer, and
will not split It this Is done.
How to Keep Cheese

WHAT SHALL BE OUR
By MPS. CHRISTINE FREDERICK
Author The New Housekeeping.
Tea, eftffee, cocoa what shall our hot
drink be? Defenders of tho cup that
cheers but which may also contain sev
eral grains of caffeine or thelno again
rally to their favorite beverage now that
colder days are with Us. Buttermilk
and all Its cousins nnd aunts, plain milk
arid cold egg and fruit drinks nro being
neglected for that "something hot" which
wo demand with the advent of sharp
winds and chill.
Many of us who Hko tea as an accom
paniment to lunch and at other tlmos
cannot get down to the viewpoint of the
Britisher who wants tea for breakfast
Authorities tell us that coffee Is danger
ous (there's a reason), and yet we must
have a hot beverage to start tho day
Self-respecting coffee fiends rcfuso to
admit the possibilities of coffee substi
tutes, and yet thero aro several of these
which, when made right and served wfth
cream, make n good morning drink. On
of these gaining in favor is a drink mado
from tho banana. Tropical dwellers havo
long used this food-fruit In this way,
drylnK the pulp nnd grinding It nnd
roasting It so that the bovcrago browed
from It, while not in any senso pretend
ing to be coffee, Is n pleasant brown-colored
drink. It Is especially good for chil
dren or others to whom coffee is denied.
"Why not coco.T" you ask, Thero is
no more delicious drink than cocoa, and
It can be more widely used than at
present. But for many the high amount
of fat present In the usual brands of
cocoa mako this beverage hard to digest,
especially when taken regularly and In
quantity. For such persons let mo
recommend a drink made from "cocoa
shells." These nro the shells separated
and set out to try out her Inspiration.
She visited tho mothers of these children,
telling them that sho would be very glad
to entertain their hopefuls every morning.
Sho ndded that on tho days when tho
weather wan not good thoy could como
to her home. Needless to say, tho moth
ers were delighted, because tho constant
watching, so Inseparable to children, be
came very tiresome. And thoso who did
their own housework found It almost
Impossible to care for tho youngsters,
Then this little girl counted tho young
sters nnd took her slender purse down
town. Sho bought ten clay plpos nnd
n bubble-blowing set, several games of
checkers, purchecsl, Jackstraws, otc
and plenty of Jacks, marbles and tops.
Tho kiddles wero completely won over
on tho first stormy day. Thoy had so
many tea parties, both for themselves
(where the "party" finally ended) nnd
their dollies that tho circle grew tre
mendously. A dollar a week was the fee each
mother was glad to pay for Beelng such
happy, smiling young faces every lunch
hour. Tho girl herself has a steady
income of nbout $50 a month. Pretty
good for pin-money. Isn't It?
Chafing Dish Party
Did you ever havo a chafing-dish party?
In theso days of electrical efficiency you
can havo n delightful ono with nil the
danger left out. Of course, you can use
an alcohol chafing dish Just as well, but
remember, "safety first." The electrical
dishes have three "speeds," so to speak,
with which to regulate the force of the
current. Tho lever can be moved up
from low to medium nnd then to high.
Tho great advantage in this is that you
can manage your heat according to the
need of the food you are cooking, and
when It Is done you can leave the current
In "low" nnd so keep things warm. It
Is cheaper, too, to use electricity, and
any one who has had the experience of
getting ready to cook, and finding that
the alcohol has all evaporated, will rec
ommend tho electric way most positively.
The party consisted of bIx couples. As
a rule, It is better to have only eight or
ten people, as you have to supply a great
many things for them, nnd It Is qulto a
little trouble. The boys were presented
with largo "blbless" gingham aprons,
which were tied around their waists. The
girls were given dainty little dimity
aprons, each one tied with a different
Then the hostess allowed the boys to
ohoose from a little pile of cards, shaped
like a chafing dish and tied with ribbon.
The ribbon on the card should corre
spond with that on the girl's apron, and
so each one finds his partner for the
Inside the cards could be found the
part of the menu each couple must con
coct Tho fact that there wero six couples
did not necessitate six chafing dishes, of
course. One couple had to set the fable,
one had to make the coffee In the elec
tric percolator and another had to make
the toast for the "Pig Wiggle" and
lettuce sandwiches. The Pig Wiggle con
sisted simply of the diced white meat
of chicken, with mushrooms, red and
green peppers and seasoning with a
cream dressing. Unless the girls are
very good cooks, a simple menu is ad
visable. The dessert consisted of a
delicious fruit cup, made ot all the fruits
In season, cut into segments, and piled
In the body of large halves ot grape
fruit The top of each was decorated
with a couple ot mint leaves and a
maraaclno cherry and looked very at
tractive. The hostess and her partner were sort
ot general assistants, locating things,
running errands from kitchen to dining
room and answering questions. Every
body enjoyed the party immensely, and
the "cooks" made very good impres
sions on their masculine attendants.

from tho cracked cocoa bean, They do
not contain ns much nutriment as or
dlnnry cocoa, but they havo about tho
samo flavor, and; owing to tho previous
extraction of oil nllow the beverage to
be much more easily digested than or
dlnnry cocoa. Theso shells can bo bought
for a small sum, In quantities of several
pounds, and n small amount may be
steeped like tea or coffee. The resulting
beverage Is light brown In color, flavored
like cocoa and more dlgestable.
For other meats, or especially for tho
afternoon cup that cheers, wo can sub
nlltute bouillon and beef extract Instead
of tea or coffee. A spoonful of meat ex
tract or a bouillon cube dissolved In a
cup of hot water Is Just as stimulating
without the questionable results of our
Usual beverages. A cup of any clear
broth, even tomato, Is excellent to wel
come tho children when thoy como home
from school on chilly afternoons and Is
nil that Is necessary to bridge the gap
between their lunch and dinner.
For those of us who havo a llttlo more
time to Bpcnd In cooking there nro many
gruels and broths which need not bo con
lined entirely to tho Invalid's dietary.
Various fruit flavored gruels of rlco or
barley, carefully strained or combined
with milk or .malted milk, aro most
nourishing beverages, which havo Just njj
stomachic results as other beverages, but
which have food value as well.
For the winter nights . hot "posset''
may bo preferred. This Is merely an
eggnrfg disguised with grapo Julco and.
spices, served hot. And the hot fruit
drinks like hot claret cup, hot blackberry
or black currant drinks aro easy to mak
nnd equally as attractive as our common
