IN THE days that, followed Ruth found

anything about their davenport which
wa not new, but which they had un

had Alice know about It. But Scott
did mention It on purpose to annoy
"Wonder what you'd do If your hus

The house wasn't the only thing that
Alice had to criticize. Scott took both
the girls to lunch one day and Alice
ordered by far the most elaborate things
on the menu.
"Now, don't for goodness' sake tip the
girl too much," she said as they were
finishing. "Scott always did tip them
most extravagantly," she said turning
to lluth. , t
"For a Now Yorker, you certainly have
out-of-town Ideas," Scott returned.

Superfluous Hair on Tace
To the Editor of Woman' root:
Dear Madam Would you kindly publish
tn sour column norae way to remove nupcr
fluoua hair from the lace? I'OLl.Y.
The hair can be made less noticeable
by the application of a solution ot one
drop of ammonia to one teaspoonful ot
peroxide of hydrogen. Apply with ab
sorbent cotton frequently and apply
again as 6oon as It dries This makes
the hair brittle nnd discourages Its
growth, although It does not exactly re
move It If used too often, this solu
tion will make jour skin drj-, so when
vou notice this condition, do not use it
for a time. The electric needle Is said
to remove tho hair permanently.

Wants to Hear From Him Again
Dear Cv nthia During the month of Au
gust I met a soung- man who eecmed to take
a great liking to me. After meeting him
the second time that aame day I bid him
good'by and then thought nothing more of
hltn This wus at tho seashore. He left a
vers' good Impression, but I never dreamed
nf ever seeing him again. About five weeks
later hn called me up on the telephone and
wo had a real nice chat, but unfortunately
It didn't last very long, because the .other
party wire had an emergency call I told
him I was awfully glad to hear from him
and that he should call up another time
when we could speak longor. He said he
would call to see me and I told him that
would be fine and that I would be glad to
aee mm again.
Well, that was during the early part of
September; It Is now almost January, and
an vet I have not heard from him. Dear
Cynthia, when Ve first met I really did not
r.lvs him' my addreaa or phone number. I
asked him where he got them, and lie said,
"It lan't vory much trouble; In fact. It Is a
pleaaure to looK up the party who has left a
gooa impression." i suppose it no aiant
rnre. da you think lie would bother looking
ma up? I would really like to meet him
again, but I do not know Just what ti do.
yes, I Know wnero no lives, uui no itcier
unmeet ethat I know., and he certainly
would wonder Just how I happen to know
his address While lie handed one nf his
carda to some one I saw the address and
have remembered It ever since.

Mack bags of poplin, gathered at the
top, and drawing together with a rib
bon are just large enough to hold one's
pocketbook, handkerchief and case for
glasses. And here Is the nlco part about
these bags. Thej' are stamped with a
simple design for embroidering with
perhaps a line or two of beads. Worked
In gay colored silk one of these bags
would bo Just the thing to carry with
one's best dress. And another nice
thing about these bags la their astonish
ingly low prices, for they are but twenty
flvekcents. This Is a tnle for fruit lovers, but
most particular' for lovers of bananas.
And It tells of luscious, fat, tempting
bananas that are not to be resisted.
Nor aro these jellow bananas. Xo In
deed! Theso are led bananas the very
best j'ou ever ate. I couldn't quite af
ford a dozen. But I, who love them,
and you whoso favorite fruit they are
cannot resist a couple.
Here's a novel shoe horn arrangement,
which 'should commend Itself to you now
because you should havo more time to
embroider. The metal shoe horn not
more than two Inches and a half In'
length has a band of vvhlto through the
end, and this Is stamped with a pretty
design to bo embroidered In colors. Ono
hangs the shoo horn thus adorned on

Is twenty-five cents.
