Gone, nil were gone, the old familiar

An English Love Tale
Jfore than a year ago In England, when
wild roses bloomed upon the Sussex
Downs, I saw the prettiest, freshest
courtship scene. The daughter .of the
great man of the place, the village squire,
had Just returned from boarding school
abroad. Sho was- a lovely girl, unworldly
and unspoilt, hor beauty with the texture
and the fragrance of nn Hngllsh rose.
Each morning early, while the dew was
on the grass and everything wss frosh
and clean and young, she galloped on her
horse across the moors. Diana never
looked one-half so beautiful'

Contented Wife Stays at Home

Richard Mansfield. Id, son of the actor,
and several of his boy and girl friends
gave a play at the home of Mrs. Mans
field, the proceeds of which were sent to
the New York Chapter of the Red Cross.
Mrs. Mansfield wrote: "It gave the young
people great pleasure to do this for the
Red Cross, and It gives me great pleasure
to send the check. We should like It
used for the help of nil the wounded,
Irrespective of nationality."

of Women. I am a young housekeeper,

theatre, but instead of going to a matinee

FRENCH ART GIYES
RARE CHARM TO
GIRL'S DANCE FROCK
Free From Sophistication of

It should not have tho sophisticated air
of the dinner dress, or the ball dress, but

In dressing each nge not merely appro

claim Its exact status so that all who

The dress shown In the Illustration Is
designed from the Parisian point of view.
In treatment nnd In the color combina
tion it Is essentially French unmistak
ably a young girl's frock, with losebuds
to symbolize tho age.
It Is made of the softest taffeta, a
tnlTota thnt has so much In the way ot
sheen and shadow that It Is easy to
mistake It for a changeable silk.
Tho color Is blue, the faintly turquolso
blue that has a charmingly urtlcss look
when It Is combined with pink.
To get Just the right shades of tho
two colors, the delicate nuance, Is an
achievement dear to tho French soul.
The bodice Is very girlish. In design,
but the fact that It Is sleeveless pro
claims It a creation of the present year.
The wide skirt announces this fact
also, following ns It does n tendency that
seems to swing the full reactionary dis
tance of the pendulum of style.
Tho bouffant appearance that Is now
so desirable Is greatly Increased by the
ruffle at the edge of the tunic nnd at
the foot of the skirt.
The spot of pink necessary to the effect
of the bodice Is established by the clus
ter of rosebuds that Is fastened Just
above the girdle at the left side.
Tho littlo bunches of roses that arc
placed at Intervals above both ruffles re
establish the harmony made by the two
Slippers and stockings that exactly
much the shidc of the dress nre an
Important detail of the costume.
They nre more youthful and for that
reason more appropriate to the Idea ex
pressed by the dress than slippers ot
bronze or black would be.
It is by the accessories and the details
that a dress succeeds or falls.

Now the detail man Is the one who
cauies out orders. He Is responsible for
tho thousand and one details which make
up the day of that particular business.
Ho does not plan for next week or next
month or next year. Ho docs what ho Is
instructed for a very small period In nd
vanco without question, without Initia
tive, and without using any creative abil
ity. The "large plan" on the other hand Is
the ono In whose brain originates tho
general policy of the business, the plans
and Ideals toward which the business
shall work and the larger icsiilts not only
for next week, but for years ahead. He
appreciates the value of detail and knows
all details thoroughly, but the bigger idea
in his mind Is his business In nil Its de
pal tments and as a whole. Without his
creative sense and his Imagination there
would be no business, and on him the
burden of responsibility falls.
Xow I havo often compared homo-making
to business. If this Is true, what typo
of woman shall direct the business of
home-making? Shall It be the detnll or
the large plan woman? I think you will
agree with me when I say that the bulk
of women home-makers fall now Into
tho detail class. They perform schedules,
they do a great deal of heavy work, they
spend unlimited time doing infinitesimal
small tasks In housework, but do they
ever approach the breath nnd viewpoint
of the large plan executive In business?
I find very few women and mothers
who see further ahead than the present
week or month. Their marketing Is dong
on the dally or at most weekly plan. Their
accounts arc kept hazardly, with no Idea
of a future end or a plan ten years off.
When they buy equipment they do not
consider It a permanent Investment, but
a present expenditure. They are tied up
In a mass of detail and believe thnt home
making does not offer them tho oppor
tunity to use the creatlvo executive and
more broadening qualities which they
think they possess.
I deplore this becnuse the detail man
or detail woman Is never as great as
tho large plan Individual. It Is seeing
only In the present and being smothered
In a mass of dally detail that prevents
stability and development for the high
est Kind of family lilt. The mother who
spends unnecessary sums and time on
Susie's hair ribbons is not thinking as a
rule of practical plans for Susie's college

evtrnvagant and who is partly responsible
for the high C03t of living. The woman

on a very large scale by theso women,
and yields a good remuneration to tho
producer. Two crops of hair a year, and
looking nono tho worso for the loss, Is
not extraordinary among these peasant
women. Half tho hair at tho back of tho

The cutting of tho finger nnlls Is one
of those little tasks from which we are
relloved only by the grave. It is com
puted that their average growth, In sick
ness and In health, Is one-thlrty-sccond
of an inch a week, a little more than an
Inch and a half a year.
This rate of growth, however, Is not
tho same for all the lingers, the thumb
nnd tho little finger being the ones whose
nails grow more slowly than tho others,
while the middle finger Is the fastest of
tlio lot. In summer it has been ob
served thnt they grow quicker than In
winter, nnd somo authorities hold that
the nails on the right hand lengthen
more rapidly than those on tho left. In
cither case they grow four times us fast
us the nails on our toes.
A SCHOOL FOR LOVERS
For some time Munich has had Its
"echool for lovers" they call It the
"Hochbchule der HIeratswissenschaften,"
but it Is not nearly so formidable as Us
name. At this sentimental seminary tho
student is taught all the secrets of love
and wooing; the desirable qualities of a
life-partner; how to create tho best im
pression and how to outwit rivals; the
proper time and method of proposing, the
mysteries of the wedding day; how to
make tho most of the honeymoon, and
so on. Tho school, we understand, Is a
great success, nnd Justifies Itself by a
brilliant array of results.
The guests at the table were discussing
"I lived on eggs and milk for two
months," remarked om lady, "and gained
"And I," said a gentleman, "lived for
over a year on nothing but milk, and
gained in weight every day "
"Mercvi" came tho chorus. "How did
you manage to do It?"
Tho gentleman smiled. "I cannot say
that I remember.'' he replied, "but I nre.

The most famous example of kisses
that have caused death Is furnished by
the story of the sprightly young Duchess
of Gordon, who raised so many recruits
for the famous Gordon Highlanders. In
the early days of the regiment recruiting
was very slow, but the Duchess attired
herself in the regimental colors, nnd mado
a tour of the various markets and fairs,
offering to each recruit a guinea nnd ;i
Most of the recipients paid for the kiss
with their lives. No sooner was tho regi
ment raised than It was sent to light the
French, and in the first engagement In
which tho Duchess's recruits participated
there was a loss of 300 killed and wound
cd. All the right flanking company was
hit save one. and he, curiously enough
did not happen to be a recipient of the
young Duchess's kiss. Ile was a cannle
Aberdeenshire man, and for an extri
guinea he sold hjs right to another per
son to a kiss from the Duchess's ruby
The Gordon Highlanders are flgluln- in
the present war with tho same magnifi

TREATING DAMP ROOMS
Blocks of camphor dispersed in nil cor
ners of damp rooms in a new house will
effectually banish damp In a very short
time, even when fires have proved Inef
fectual. They should bo simply laid on
paper, or on the bare shelves of a damn
room or linen closet. The blocks grad
ually decrease t:r -size., and when they
finally disappear should bo replaced until
their purpose is served.
