ADAPTED FOR GENERAL WEAR
Smart Coats of Covert Cloth Service
able for Any Occasion Dur
ing thc Winter.
Every winter outfit should be sup
plied with one of the smart coats of
covert cloth for rough-and-ready wear.
These hang very full and straight
from the raglan shoulders, and are
.belted about the hips.
Large, coin-shaped bone buttons are
used to fasten the coats and to trim
One notices in the exclusive shops
which specialize in topcoats, whose
well-tailored lines lift them far above
the ordinary coat, exceptionally smart
models of Irish blanket cloth. ' They
are to be had in all colors, including
navy blue, tobacco brown, tan, hunt
er's green, beige and tete de negre.
One of the best models has a full
lower portion attached to a yoke
which is extended over the shoulders
to form the sleeves. About the waist
line, at the back, are box plaits, from
which the coat hangs in full godets.
A wide stitched belt across the front
starts from under the arms and
fastens at the side front. The high
collar and cuffs are of beaver.
. The straight hip-length coat contin
ues to retain the popularity gained
earlier in the season. Some models
are single-breasted, and fasten with
frogs of braid, while others are
fastened at the side with bullet but
tons covered with the material.
A stunning model of black velvet
has a short, loose jacket bordered
with white fox. The collar buttons
close about the neck, and the long
sleeves are tightly fitted, coming well
over the hands. The skirt is circular
and has a border of the fur at the ex
treme edge of the hem. This ls a
practical suit, which would do service
on many occasions.-Washington Star.
LINGERIE ALL IN TAFFETA
Popular Material Has Come Into Fash
ion for Every Sort of Use in
The newest ideas in lingerie in its
real meaning of the word are now
being shown in taffeta. When you
rest, if you would rest in approved
fashion, it must be in taffeta from
head to toe. The boudoir cap that Is
exquisite and new is of taffeta. The
negligee and the little mules of bou
doir slippers are of the same material
and are trimmed with the attractive
hand-made roses, lace or silk embroid
ery that we have come to love in the
rest hour. These sets are excellent
ideas for gifts that you can make from
short pieces of taffeta, and if you do
not care to give three pieces at once
make one of a set of staple color in
taffeta and finish it on other red letter
days/ A boudoir cap that Is worthy
?ta? I* 'in w&rti?k Ma >MJ
has a border of small pink and blue
roses around the edge. These are
made in the wrapped style and have
small leaves cf pale green taffeta to
fill out the garland. Around the bot
tom is a plaited net frill with a hand
embroidered garland of flowers.
EXQUISITE CAPE COAT
Charming in its simplicity is this
cape coat of mcritox babylamb. The
rolling collar, silk braid agraffes and
jaunty style of coat are borrowed from
the military capes worn by officers.
The sleeves are loose and baggy so
as not to crush the delicate tulle
sleeves of the frock. They show a
flaring cuff. A tassel-weighted sash
adds grace to the coat, and the cor
sage of blue flowers is a novel addi
The Reign of Blue.
Dark blue is surely as fashionable
as its stanchest admirers could wish
to have it. Blue serge has been fash
ionable for several seasons, increas
ingly so, apparently. And it is as
much worn now as ever. Of course,
blue serge suits demand blue acces
sories, so there are blue net blouses,
blue silk and lisle stockings, blue
handbags and other blue things by the
score. Then there are many blue vel
vet hats. Blue is one of the best
colors in the lovely new brocades for
evening wear, too. And blue velvet
even crimson velvet-is not more regal
looking than rich and sumptuous vel
vet of king's blue.
One ship drives east, another west,
While the selfsame breezes blow;
'Tis the set of the sails and not the
That bids them where to go.
Like the winds of the air, are the wara
of the fates
As we journey along: through life;
'Tis the set of the soul that decides
And not the storm or strife.
THE ECONOMICAL SALMON.
According to government analysis,
canned salmon will furnish a pound
of protein more
cheaply than any
other animal food
except salt cod.
The thrifty house
wife will have a
few cans of salmon
on her shelves to
use for occasions
and also for emergencies. A most
appetizing mam dish for a ? din
ner may be made by serving salmon
loaf surrounded with peas. Salmon
with peas and a salad dressing and a
chopped pickle makes a most appetiz
Another good dish which is espe
cially nice for a supper dish is mashed
potatoes put through a ricer heaped
on a platter as a border around sal
mon which has been heated in the
can. After opening, set it in hot wa
ter until well heated, then heap in
the center of a hot platter, removing
the skin and hones. Over the pota
toes pour a thick well-seasoned white
sauce and serve very hot.
Salmon Cups.-Chop finely a can
of salmon, add a half cupful of bread
crumbs, two tablespoonfuls of melted
butter, one tablespoonful of lemon
juice, two well-beaten eggs, Bait, pep
per, and half a cupful of rich milk.
Mix well and pack in greased cups,
set in a pan of water and bake until
firm. Turn out and serve on hot in
dividual plates with a white sauce.
Salmon Croquettes.-Mix a half cup
ful of bread crumbs with a can of
salmon drained and minced. Season
with salt, pepper, a little nutmeg, the
juice of half a lemon and a table
spoonful of butter. If too dry add a
' little of the liquor from the can. Make
in any desired shape, and when firm
fry in deep fat
Salmon Soup.-Grate an onion and
cook in a quart of rich milk ten min
I utes. Cook two tablespoonfuls of flour
with one of butter, season well, add
half a canful of salmon chopped.
Cook ten minutes all together, then

The law of a king is service.
And the kingliest serve Ihe most.
Then ye who, are sons of promise
And would royal lineage boast,
Get under the common burden.
Go, brother the brotherless sons
And win the royal guerdon,
The thanks of comforted ones. .
-Staley F. Davis.
Cabbage maybe made q'iite another
dish by cooking and combining with
different seasonings and
food. Creamed cabbage
is an especially nice
dish; shred the cabbage
very fine and cook it un
til tender in boiling wa
ter, slightly salted, then
drain in a colander and
put it into a rich, well
seasoned white sauce. A few bits of
finely chopped celery and a dash of
onion improves the flavor.
Buttered cabbage is another appe
tizing dish. Cook finely shredded cab
bage, until tender, in salted water,
drain and put it back into the sauce
pan, add water, pepper and more salt
and when w.ell mixed a few table
spoonfuls of good vinegar to give it
a zest. Serve hot.
Cabbage eaten raw is more digesti
ble than when cooked. When serving
it raw it should be very finely shred
ded or chopped and allowed to stand
in cold water to crisp. . Drain well,
add salt, sugar, thick sweet cream and
a very little vinegar. This makes a
most delicious salad to serve at any
Another cabbage salad which is
such a favorite with the Germans es
pecially, and is named German salad,
is prepared by chopping fine a small
head of cabbage and an onion and
pouring over them the fat fried out
from a good slice of salt pork cut in
small cubes; when well mixed, sea
son highly with salt and red pepper
and pour over a half cupful of boiling
hot vinegar. The cubes of fried pork
may be added or used as a garnish,
only be sure to add them, as they add
greatly to the salad.
Spanish onion, cabbage and a green
pepper chopped together, served indi
vidually with a hard-cooked half of
egg chopped and sprinkled over each
serving. Serve with French dressing.
A rather unusual, but pretty way,
of serving this vegetable is to boil a
nice, solid head until tender and put
It whole on a platter with pork sau
sage for a garnish. Serve wedge
shaped pieces, mashed potato and
