J|| WE ® rilßSi i no? We can face another year of work with Immense confidence. In the light of the recent report of the American Red Cross on its expenditures In Eu rope and America. This report Is a revelation and an inspiration. It la more than a matter of duty now to be a busy member of this wonderful, wholly modern and efficient organiza tion. If this report stirs no pride of country In the heart of the woman who reads It she may be sure her soul is about dead —or held a famishing prisoner by her self-centered mind. Te be In the midst of a world,, of good deeds and to take no pa£ in them — when the way is always open can yon imagine Itt What happens to your dollar when you send It forth on Its errand of mercy through the medium of the American Red Cross was explained In m statement Issued as a prelude to the opening of the campaign for an other $100,000,000 war fund. The magnitude of the work which the Red Cross la doing on all battle fronts and for American prisoners In Germany la disclosed by the figures: Relief work In France....530,930,10!1 Relief work In Belgium.' 2,080,181 Relief work In 1ta1y...... 4.088.82(1 Relief work In Russia 1.206,000 Relief work In Bonmanta. 2.676.86 S Relief work In Serbia 804,580 RaHet work In Great Brit ain 8,280,280 Other foreign relief work. 4,476300 For 0. & prisoners In Ger many 861(004 For Red Orosa personnel sent abroad 201300 Belief work In 0.

They are voile, dotted swlss and organdie, and they are dainty enough and at the Same time strong enough for the small est girls’ dress-up frocks. Voile has edme to be a great favorite on account of ita wonderful wearing qualities, which make It worth while to pnt careful needlework ou It Dot ted swlss is liked because it Is crisp and fresh looking, and organdie Is chosen for the finest of all dresses made for the youngest wearers of shear frocks. In tbs picture the little dress at the left la of white voile with a smocked yoke In which heavy blue embroidery silk Is used for the ornamental stitches. It has a narrow panel set on at the front, making place for two rows of tiny round crocheted buttons and a narrow Bath of the voile finished with two of the aame buttons sus pended on the silk thread from the end*. The designer did not over look opportunities for these little dangling buttons ad the point of the collar, or forget to Introduce a band of smocking and fancy stitching on the cuffs. Altogether this little frock Is elaborated with considerable needle work. Tbs dress at the right is much sim pler.

Recently the Red Cross ladies In a Kentucky .town held a com-shucklng bee for n grain merchant who found It difficult to get laborers. They worked to the merry tune of $75, which cash they turned In to the Red Cross, thetehy making themselves Justly famous as an enterprising chapter. They are proud and we are all proud of them. Fashion Points of Interest. There are four things In fashion that are often discussed today: The severe mi collared neck line, the short sleeve, the cape hack and the lack of chiffon blouses. A dressmaker drew a pa tron’s attention to the absence of (he latter garment because of the preva lence of one-piece frocks, and told how the shirt waist people were depending upon .wash blouse* to continue their business. Sailor collars are not smart. High collars that roll upward at the back and down la the front are not at tached to coats. The eullars that go on bodlcea of one-piece frocks end he fore they reach the collarbone, and the rest of the decolletuge Is untouched by any line of white. To Wash Silk Stockings. If lime permits silk stockings should be allowed to soak for a short time be fore washing In tepid water to whleb a little powdered borax has been added. Then wash them In a tepid soapy lather first on one side and then on the other, paying particular atten tion to the feet. I’nll the stockings I gently Into shape before drying, and ; when nearly dry press them on the j wrong side with a cool iron. feoL A band of the Swiss set between (be gathered yoke and skirl Is out lined with fancy stitching In colored embroidery silk and clusters of \hree little forget-me-nots are embroidered on It—ln three groups at the front and two at the buck These are the kind of dresses that the little girl needs now that sum mertime makes life one perpetual round of Joys, what with excursions to the park and to the movies and everything. Gingham Waistcoats. The gingham waistcoat made s tentative start for popularity, but was soon running down the truck at full speed. All the younger set sre wear ing these waistcoats, the shops show them at different prices, and they make an alluring grouping of color In the windows. They have started the fash ion for n great variety of skeleton waistcoats that are worn Instead of collars. Many are high-necked, others have long, sloping, double-breasted revers. They are less trouble to ad just In a blouse or coat than a collar, for they have their own listening and are kept down at the waist by nn elas tic band. Pique has come back Into fashion for these waistcoats, but checked gingham and plaid muslin lead. | professional. B. H. CAMALIER, DENTIST, Leonard town, Md. Office —Beacon Building. AF.
