off one hair at a time until the de
sired shape is reached. A friend
of mine who found this rather ex
pensive, does it for herself, using
one of her brother's safety razor
blades. She cuts the hairs off one
by one, using1 no soap and water,
for that would make them stiff.
She tells me she only has to do
this about once a month, and her
eyebrows are very much admired.
I do not blame any girl who has
very light scraggly eyebrows for
darkening them. The best thing
to use for this is mascara, a water
color. Put it on very carefully,
using a little brush that comes
in the box with the color. This is
perfectly harmless and if used
with discretion cannot be detect
ed, but you must train your eyes
to detect the first bit of paint on
your skin. Just lightly darken
Just one last word: It is the
little details which make great
Peaches Halved (Uncooked)
Use large freestones. Drop
into boiling water for two min
utes, then into iced water. The
fruit will slip easily out of the
skin. Halve the peaches. Re
move pits and place the fruit on
ice. When ready to serve, fill the
centers with powdered sugar, or
sugar and melted marshmallows.
Join each, two halves with short,
fine, toothpicks and place in the
serving dishes or glasses. Whip
ped cream adds to their richness
Peach Sauce Preserved Use
thoroughly ripe fruit. Pare,
stone and cook slowly an hour.
Add sugar in proportion of three
fourths pound to each pound of
peaches. For immediate table
use this will not require very
much cooking. But for putting it
up, it must become dark in color
and free of juice. Seal while hot.
Peach Tapioca. Soak a cup of
tapioca over night. Peel and cut
up 10 peaches. Add a cup of
sugar and stew until tender. Boil
the. tapioca in two cups of water
until clear, then stir the stewed
peaches into it. Remove from the
fire; add the juice of a small
lemon ai.d set away to cool. Eat
with whipped cream.

UP IN THE AIR?
Sea Girt, N. J., Aug. 2. Gov.
Woodrow Wilson, in talking over
recent yachting trip, pulled fol
lowing limerick, which he blush
ingly admitted having written on
board yacht Corona :
"I wish that my room had a floor,
I don't so much care for a door,
But this walking around,
Without touching the ground
Is getting to be such a bore."
