Plan to Be Tested in Localities'
Where Firewood Is Plentiful
Wnhlniton, July 30. Country dis
tricts in States where the supply of fire
wood is plentiful may be denied coal
for domestic use, except under special
permits, under the latest plan suggested
by the fuel administration.
Preliminary instructions to try the
plan in certain localities have been sent
State administrators and these officials I have never believed that the ma
have been advised that If the prohibl- Jorlty of women looked at lovely and
tlon results In excesrive prices being extravagant things with envy, but that
demanded by wood dealers prosecutions , they derive a subtle pleasure In simply

Ofllclals cited an order appointing
each State fuel administrator to of
fice delesated authority for prohibiting
the sale, shipment and distribution of
coal to domestic consumers. It is under
this authority, it was explained, that
the fuel administration, notably In Phil
adelphia, has been enabled to enforce
its regulations holding the houueholder
to the amount of coal commensurate
with his reasonable needs.

can tell who thinks of them all? For
Instance, today I saw a small square
sterling sliver locket, with a service flag
in enamel in the center It opens, rf
course, to hold your soldier's picture,
and Is fitted with a black molte ribbon
wtist strap. In fact, at first glance. It
looks for all the vvoild like a trim silver
wrist watch. And Its price is $4.50.
One of the shops is displaying some
cool-looking woven voile patterns which
are valued at thirty-eight cents and fifty
cents a yard. They are striped, tome
pale pink, others a fresh cool green,
and they have been lowered to twenty
eight cents a yard. A very nice porch
dress or cool lltflo business frock could
be made from one of these, and tho tctnl

little girl how you loved tojearry a tiny
fan with your Sunday-go-to-meetlng
white dress? 1 was lemlnded of It today
when I saw s-ome wee fans for little
people. One had small Dutch flguics on
it and was priced at thlrty.flvo cents
Another, pure white, was only ten cents.
I can just picture Mistress Hetty hold
ing primly one of these fans In her
chubby hands and fanning back those
damp little curls
Ycu must admit that it Is exasperating
to be dressed up with your very best
hat and veil and then to have the veil
slip down off the brim of your hat. I
saw sterling silver veil pins today,
curved like flower pins and rhlnestones
which catch the veil at the front of
the hat. And the curve fits snugly over
the hat brim The price of fifty cents.

A Miracle Worked
With a Pot of Beans
Toil wouldn't think you could do
much with a pot of beans, would
you? Well, the other night I gave
Jim a dish which Is now on our
regular menu. It w-as beans with
tomato sauce, to be sure, but with
that I mixed bananas baked slowly
In maple syrup until they were
soft, and then I Just gave It a dash
of Al' Sauce. Boston wouldn't
have recognized those beans. Jim
says he will recognize them If he
meets them again, and he ho-ies it
will be often. AI Sauce is not a
Worcestershire, you know, it Is Just
a miracle-working flavor that
transforms left-overs and turns
beans Into bliss. (Advt)
