Mr. Vaile," said Eunice, "and I felt
I must come and advise you unless
you know already that some words
are knit into the fabric of the. shawl"
"That is, indeed, news to" me!"
murmured Hector wonderingly.
And then they spread out the
shawl on a dark background, and in
quite a system of construction the
words were figured out: "the home
lover must search in the old dry cis
tern." Before the day was over Hector
Vaile knew that he had come upon
the hidden hoard of dead Aunt Julia.
Within a week he and Eunice were
close friends, and then love began to
play a part in the romance.
"You always were the lucky one!"
remarked Willis Craine, during a visit
to his cousin, a year later.
He had come to borrow money to
clear away some of the debts of his
extravagant wife. As he spoke, how
ever, he looked significantly at the
mistress of the household Eunice.

WHAT I SEE IN SHOW WINDOWS
By Betty Brown
A coat suit so simple it couldn't
help being stylish. It was maize color
pongee. Pongee is popular, and
maize is fashion's pet color just now.
It was Norfolk in style with white
pongee collars and cuffs and white
pongee trimming the big patch
pockets. You'll see many suits in
maize pongee before June roses fade.
A wide-brimmed sailor hat in cadet
blue silk. A big bird cut out of sil
very gray velvet was applied on the
front crown, and his mate spread
wings across the back brim. The
"cut-out" bird will be seen on many
Bailors this summer.
A coat suit of taffeta and Geor
gette crepe. The hip-long coat was
sheer taffeta stitched at the bottom
in blue, and blue stitching outlined a
yoke. The skirt was pussy willow
taffeta in white, flecked unevenly
.with inch-long strips of light blue. ,
The crepe coat is a novelty a lovely
thing for a garden party.
A summery little gown, sweet as a
day in June, is white marquisette em
broidery in little dots of burgundy
silk, made surplice bodice, draped
hips and an empire girdle of mar
quisette embroidered in burgundy.
COOL LITTLE CUFFS FOR THESE '
By Betty Brown
What would we do without the
cuffs and collars and little frills of
organdy or voile which makes us
look cool as a nice green cucumber,
even if we feel as hot as a griddle
White collars and cuffs are so
easily soiled, some wise one has de
vised the crisp, pretty things in
colors old blue, maize, or light
The frilly things I've sketched here
are in old blue chiffon cloth, very
sheer and delicate with Kttle ruffles
of white organdy. Slipped on with
a tailored suit of pongee, crash,
serge, they look cool and fresh oa
the "muggiest" summer day.
