OLD POTPOURRI RECIPE NO. 1 Request lor directions for keep- I ing rose peials in jars come in each year at this time, and we will publish two old recipes for making potpourri, using rose pet als, one a wet method using oils, and one with only dry ingredients Rose petals will not keep without ! some addition such as salt, alcohol , or one ol the oils. To the rose 1 were added, in olden days, various other scents according to the taste of the maker. It was this mixture that was known as potpourri , which means a medley. Rose petals were the basis ot the old potpourri jars. These jars | lasted many season and were opened occasionally when the j scent was desired and then tighl I Iv closed again. The following is ! a very old recipe and worth try ! ing if you are willing to give the i time and attention to make it j properly. Gather roses on a sunny day j before the bud is fully opened. preferrably in the early morning I when dew is still on the plant. . Spread out singly on sheets of blotting paper, or any absorbant paper, in the sun, turning repeat edly until dry. Keep on gathering until you have about two quarts j of dry petals ready to pack. If you care for the addition of ; spice, mix 1-quarter ounce each of | crushed (not ground) cloves, cin ! namon and nutmeg. Get from the drug store one ounce each of an | gelica, powdered orris root, j sandalwood and a little musk, if I you like musk. Mix these with the spices and place in a tightly closed glass or china jar. In another jar of glass or china mix one ounce each of oils of lemon, rose and lavender, and two ounces of any fine cologne. Now you are ready to pack.

Repeat this until the jar is nearly full. Stir thoroughly with a wooden spatula from the bottom each day for a month, covering tightly in between times. After a month ot this it will be “ripe” and can be opened whenever the fragrance is wanted in the room. It must be kept tightly closed at all other times. OLD POTPOURRI RECIPE NO, 2 Another recipe still older than the one given yesterday for a jar of rose petals, spices, essences and oils, has no liquids or spices, but calls for the addition of other petals and ot herbs. The addition of salt assures its keeping, even ihough no alcohol or oil is added The salt must not be “iodized” salt. The rose petals are to be gather ed on a sunny day when there has been no rain for three days, and are to be dried in the shade on sheets of absorbent paper, with frequent “turnings”. Following are the ingredients: One-half pound dry rose petals, using only those of very fragrant roses. One-half pound dry carnation or clove pink blooms. One-half pound dry orange blos soms or those of the old sweet syringa or mockorange (philadel phus). O n e-fourth pound dry lavender florets. One - fourth pound dry angelica root. One handful each of dry thyme, lemon verbena, bairn of gilead, rosemary and bay leaves. One-fourth ounce dry musk. One handful of bay salt and one of table salt, very fine. Put these together in a china jar that can be tightly covered. Mix well with a wooden paddle every day for six weeks. It is then ready to use. This mixture will last for years in sachets and in closely covered china jars. It is said to keep moths away from woolen clothes. Small portions can be sewed in bags for the linen closets. Mingled with the perfume of dried lavender “bottles” it gave to household linens a fragrance that no modem sachet can approach. elgilt: WITH THE @T“" Dura Power Mainspring EXTRA VALUE AT NO EXTRA COST!

Front St. Dial 2-1511 _ Bridal Coiffure !’ By BETTY CLARKE AP Newsfeatures Beauty Editor A girl should be entitled to spend as much as she likes on her wed ding trousseau. But after she has planned the wedding and reception and chosen linens and silver for her home, she shouldn’t skimp on investing in a lovely hairdo and breath-taking makeup for her wed ding day. Makeup expert Eddie Senz says the' above everything else, the UPSWEEP HEAUDINER . . . Designed for the bride by Eddie Senz. bridal makeup should be muted and natural. Brows should be carefully arched, mouth full and generously shaped but not exag gerated. If you need a permanent, Mr. Senz suggests you get it at least two weeks before your wedding day so that your hair will be nat ural looking and easily manage able. The best idea is to have it washed and set at least once after the permanent and before the bridal coiffure. Have your hair set the day before the wedding and combed out by a professional hair dresser (or yourself) just before you put on your veil. Mr. Senz also suggests that you —:- i take into consideration the shape of your face before you choose your bridal hairdo. If you have a round face, wear a hairdo with height — achieved either with a feather bob or a simple glamor 1 bob — and a halo headdress. The ( triangular face can emphasize • width at the top to equalize the • width at the cheekbones with a center part of fluffy waved bang. An Ann Boleyn cap, wide at the sides and dipping forward in the center, is a perfect complement to the triangle face. The square faced girl will need to keep hair and veil away frc the jawline. A long face can be made to look shorter by wearing the hair over one temple. The bridal headdress may be either a flat pillbox of maline or satin or a Juliet cap with its flat crowned effect. * • » Thalian Production !
