FIVE Kr W II ll THE HOME DYEING OF WHITE GOODS The average woman seldom consid er! herself capable of dyeing fabric at home, and her general knowledge of the subject Is more or less hazy. It is true that there is a slight pos sibility of spoiling materials If less than ordinary care is given to the dyeing, but even an amateur would be likely to obtain splendid results through the more simple methods of dipping or dyeing. A few of these methods are given In order to facili tate their use in the home. In recent years crepe paper L3 found a new role of usefulness, name ly: Aa a quick and inexpensive dye. Small pieces of this paper, of a simi lar shade'' to the one desired, are dded to the rinsing water, and waists and hosiery dipped in. This color ing is not very lasting, but for quick work it is quite satisfactory. Silks colored by this method look very well, but for cotton fabrics it Is not so good, as tne arnnuy or cotton tor conn ing matters is generally feebler than that of silk or woolen, and as the color in the crepe paper in itself is not a lasting dye, it could not be ex pected to work as well on cottons. Diamond dyes have been on the market for years, and are very de pendable, especially for wool dyeing. Full directions for their use are print ed on every package. White wool arge and gabardines take these dyes beautifully. Broadcloths and flannels do not dye so well, as in the very hot water required to dye them they harden and shrink. Cotton materials can be dyed at a much lower tem perature, often at about J0 to 100s l and very frequently in cold dye. Materials of a decided color to be redyed should be given to professional dyers, as they know the shades that "will, or will not, take certain colors, and what action the chemicals in the dyea have upon fabrics that have been colored before. Cotton bears contact with alkalies ranch better than silks or woolens, although it in return is more readily injured by strong acid solutions. For silks and chiffons, also for nets, the dry dye method is very satisfac tory. This method is very simple and of almost certain success. Regular artist oil paint is used, diluted with gasoline. For dyeing small pieces a wash bowl Is a good container, and the dye will not stain it To a glass about half full of gasoline add enough of the oil paint to produce a deep shade of the color desired. See that It la thoroughly mixed with the gas oline. - Into the basin . pour enough gasoline to more than cover the ar ticles, to be dyed. Rinse the materials in it, then wring them out. By damp ening the ftbric first, the danger of uneven coloring will be eliminated. After removing the goods from the basin, add the dyestttff little by little, occasionally testing with small strips of cloth until the desired shade is procured. Souse the matvrial op and down in the mixture taking care that every bit of the texture cornea In di rect contact with the dye. If by an unfortunate chance a mistake has been made and the color is too dense, immediate rinsing in clean gasoline will lessen the Intensity of the dye. After the materials have been re moved . from the basin they should be ; shaken until almost dry before hanging. out in the open;' this will prevent checking or streaking. Aa soon aa they are dry, the pieces should be pressed with a moderately hot iron. This will cook the color and render it more permanent This method should not be used for dyeing any materials that are to be tubbed. It .does not penetrate into the fiber of the textile, .hut merely "paints it. ; For. washable silks a very popular coloring matter is the new iTintex preparation. The tints are mostly in the soft pastels shades. These dyes are. dissolved in the rinse water, and &re excellent for use in restoring col ors thtt have become faded from washing and exposure to the rays of the sun. In dyeing materials that are not new, . the necessity of having them tree from grease or dust cannot be overestimated. Even if the garments appear perfectly clean, hangingthem in a wardrobe together wfth street clothes would more than likely trans fer dust and grease spots to them, and these soiled spots will not take the dye evenly, and would possibly cause streaking. Emphasis must also be made upon the thorough rinsing of clothes after washing, as soap stoma will also tend to spoil the dye.

"TOG TALKS" This article is Number 6 of a series of papers on practical dressmaking and millinery sub jects, with special hints on prof itable buying for wear in Hawaii. This new department is being conducted by Janet Walker, who, with several years of experience in dressmaking and with a wide knowledge of materials, patterns and values, brings to the work an unusually thorough equip ment. All materials described in these papers may be purchased at the Honolulu shops and the aim is to furnish hints in an at tractive, readable form for the women and girls of the city whe ther they make their own clothes in whole or in part, or buy at the tailors, the milliners, the dressmakers or the shops. Among the later papers will be "Home Dyeing of Wnite Goods," "How to Select Proper Corsets," rnd "Suggestions for Making Ovsr Dresses." H.Culman Co.,Ltd.

II jr' t Marie Doro, her husband Elliott Dexter), supported by a cast of Jesse L. Lasky stars, returns to the Liberty theater tonight in the latest success of this versatile and fascinating star, "Castles for Two." This is an Irish story, and should prove a good one. It is a little off the beaten path of photo-romance and for that reason alone should be a good drawing card. The featured star is cast as an American heiress, with an Irish name. She Visits Ireland and changes places with her maid. Here, as the maid, she meets Brian O'Neil, a poor Irish lord whose sister and mother would M him marry for money. The American heiress is chosen as the uicus w nereby the estate may be rescued. Brian, however, is in love with the maid. Then follow the many possible ram ifications in this old situation, Brian eventually proposing to the supposed maid, learning her identity he with draws his proposal but she advises him that it is a matter she and his mother will decide. The decision may be readily imagined. The fourth story in the serial touching girl reporters is entitled "The White Trail.' It is reported to be equal to those that have gone before. AT THE HAWAII Once again the Hawaii theater en tertains with a good " crook" drama, the class of drama that is a sure fire success with the patrons of that thea ter and which, in the present instance at least, deserves to be the decided hit it is. "The Battle of Life" is the offering and Gladys Coburn and Art Acord are the stars. This is a pair of new featured artists over the Kox circuit and they are equal to the usual high standard set by the F.x stars. The story deals with a young sirl. raised amongst crooks and as a crook. There is nothing in crookdom with which this miss is not thoroughly conversant. All the tricks of the game are well-known to her The follow ing of the underworld, however, fails to have the charm for her that it Wtr Cm m m III MARIE DORO IN IRISH ROMANCE 'CROOK' DRAMA III TAnllAII T AT 8 O'CLOCK For One Week Onlv B II Will WIS THE JOYLAND CIRCUS Act 1 Selection by cur Joy land Oreus 15 - Piece Brass Rand.

No child in Honolulu can afford to stay away and the roars of laughter of the grown-ups last night showed that they too appreciated the show. Nothing was left undone to maka it as near a real circus as could be expected in a theater with a sawdust ring in which animals with almost human Intelligence performed, bare back riders dashed gaily around and jugglers did amazing feats while from the bars and rings, suspended from the ceiling, acrobats daringly hung from their toes and heels and the tight rope walkers brought round after round of applause with their wonder ful balancing. The Oriental head balancer who stood on his head on a parallel bar aa it swung back and forth was expe cially good and the Cavanna duo, .-; tight rope and song sketch, received a big "hand." The trained animal performance was by far the most extremely funny act on the program. In fact, the train ing was also too good to be rtue. The bucking pony especially amused the children as did also the clowns' base ball game which ended in a riot and the umpire chased from the arena. The footwork of the Oriental juggler who tossed alarge screen about with the feet better than the ordinary per son could do it with his hand?, was really as wonderful as advertised. Do mingo's wire act was a!;o bettor thai: tne average as he did soine very clever balancing with a btick an ; :ate.

The strength that is needed in renouncing the life to which she has been accustomed and the thor oughness with which she eventually reforms are the features of the film drama.
