If a gown is 200 francs in the Rue de la Paix, a simple afternoon frock, of

There are things, of course, that have the associations of delightful

cooking utensils and, more than that,
all of the macaroni.

well supplied with macaroni or face

Some Resolutions Which
May Help You
j WILL remember that my husband and children would
I rather have a pleasant, happy wife and mother than
■■• the most immaculate house in the world; therefore, I
will try not to do any more house cleaning than I caa
do and keep well and pleasant.
I will not be influenced in the smallest degree by the
amount of cleaning which my neighbor does. I know
what my house needs and what I am capable of doing,
Ii no feats of hers spur me to do one whit more.
I will not criticize my neighbor's house cleaning.
c knows what is best for her.
This season I will try to do away with every piece
of furniture and every ornament which is not yielding
due return in utility or beauty for the care which I
have to give it. When lam looking over our clothes
and putting things away for the summer, I will remember that I have no
right to keep anything on the vague chance that I might possibly need it
in the distant future, when there are so anany who undoubtedly need it right
now. I will try to make my charity bundle larger than ever before, and I
will see that it contains less junk and more charity.
I will not go beyond the limit of my strength in trying to finish this oil
that task at any special time. No matter how temptingly near the com
pletion of any task 1 may be, I will stop when I know I ought to. It ia
better to give up finishing that last shelf in the dining room closet than to
finish it and myself, too.
I will make some radical changes in the arrangement of my furniture.
There is nothing in the world so healthful as change. Even little changes
like this help get us out of the rut and refresh us. I'd like to go to Europa
this spring. I can't. I can rearrange the living room furniture, so I will.
It- possible, I will deprive myself of some other luxury and put a fevt,
more dollars this year into buying strength for my spring cleaning.
I will not eat hurried and insufficient meals in house cleaning tima
bcrauee 1 want to get back to my cleaning. When you want an engine to
go very fast you do not cut down its supply of coal.
PMrst, last and always, I will try to remember that my family and I
do not exist for our house, but that our house is for us; and holding firmly to
that perspective, I will try to go about my house cleaning this year mora
sanely, sensibly and tranquilly than I ever have before.
