Mrs. Wilson tells how in todaj's cookery artiilc and watch the old year out and ring in the new year; there is great mer- rymaking and feasting, with the fecl- -- Ing that another milestone on the voyage of life has- been passed. On this day large numbers of relatives and friends visit each other and keep open house; there are plenty of j wishes for joy and prosperity. These merry-makings of New ; Year'3 day date back to the early !' .Rues in England. In Gloucestershire $"' ttfe'Mrfnkine of the wassail at mid- m, . night was indeed a ceremony. "Wassailing, a-wassailing, I go a wassailing over town, Here be I a-standing by tho door iN Just as I was the year bofore." j The lads of the town, rigged out it 5n all kinds of masquerade suits, r youId band together and start out on calls upon the householders, sing- i ing wassailing songs. Open house is f the orde,r of the day on New Year's. How to Piyjpare for a Watch Party Have the guests assemble about &:30 p. m. and entertain them by stories, singing, etc., until about 11:30. Sing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," as the guests mafch to the dining room and form around the table, about 11:55. Have a mug or class of wassail in front of each feuest and then turn out the lights. Turn the lights on at 12 o'clock ! bharp. Ring out the bells and "turn Joose" all the noise you can make, t 12:05 let all the company raise i leir glasses foe a wassail toast: "Well may be we always be, 111 may be we never see, i Here to our toast, "' The gude companie." , Then proceed with the supper and 'dance until the dawn. In Scotland the older folk, at the approach of I 12 o'clock, drink a pint of hot spiced . ale, so that on the stroke of mid-, flight good health and a happy New ' Year was drunk, while the young j lolk danced. , For us, too, we should thankfully J speed the departing year and wel come, oh, how joyfully! the prospect . of a joyous apd happy new year, The success of a watch-night party tfW'V depends entirely upon the- refresh ments.

Adventures With a Purse "Dc O YOU know." exclaimed one woman, "I wanted to buy n couple of inexpensive' nightgowns for cery day wear, and I couldnt find a Mossed thing under 12!" She should havo seen the ones I ran across today. Although originally marked higher, they have been repriced at 11.35, and their value Is extraordinary. They have low necks and short sleeves, and neck and sleeves aro trimmed with remark ably fine lace or bands of embroidery .V bit of ribbon run through the neck Imparts a touch of color, and the result is a bey of pretty gowns that would please the moat exacting woman. Although one's hair is generally sup posed to com out at certain seasons of tho year fall and spring, I believe when it takes no cognlrance of time, but Just continues to fall oven now, then It is hgli time to take measures to pre vent this. (Jet a little massage comb, I suppose It might be called, although It Is round In shape and Is about the size of the bottom of a fea cup, with ins teecn around the edges. If you will run this comb well through your hair each night before retiring-, the aaaurance Is that It will aid greatly In removing destructive dandruff, and., will promote a healthy circulation In- the calp, which will do much to putting the hair once .more in a healthy normal condition. Certainly the matter Is worth u trial, for the cost of the comb Is but ten cents, Personally I could have beamed moat encouragingly at Jack Horner that time he sat In his corner, had he put In his thumb and pulled out a strawberry In stead of a plum. But. of course, that may be entirely due to the fact that I am partial to strAwberries, particu larly do large, fat, preserved strawber ries with rich juice arOuee all my youth ful enthusiasm. That will probably ac count for my telling you of the tempting looking Jars of preserved strawberries, which, to my way of thinking, were most alluringly arranged on the shelf.

The de- signs on the taffeta are cut from the tricolctte A Daily Fashion Talk by Horenct Rose "ITTHEN I nrst caw tho wrap Illustrated ' ' today, I was greatly Impressed with the similarity between this nnd the Chinese kimono that many women wear nbout their dressing rooms In tho early morning. The material, of course, docs not In the least resemble tlio crepy stuff usually used for tho negligee robe, but the lines of this wrap certainly recall to one's mind the kimono. We have be come qulto accustomed to the dolman wrap, but It will hae to be admitted that this southern 'wrap Is an exagger ated examplo of this sort of garment. As this Is Intended for tho southern sea son, however. It Is well for us to pay more than ordinary attention to Its lines, for It Is evidently -what is to bo the fashion later on In the North. There Is no doubt that the dolman wrap has . . . ,. ,. . , , , been a great favorite this winter In New York and tho prestige Is bound to continue through another season. The material from which this model was designed Is also one that Is not new with this season, but neertheless una tiinf ( n favnriie irlcnlotfe nn a woman has tried It out for wear she is not likely to wish to put It In the discard. Tills model Is of tan trlco- , lette, with bands of black taffeta. These bands aro decorated with conventional designs out of the tan trlcoletto and stitched to the black taffeta. The scarf which encircles tho neck, one end of I which bancs at tho left side, Is of tho black taffeta finished with a deep silk fringe. The huge kimono sleeves give a loose, roomy appearance to tho upper part of this wrap, but the lower part Is made very tight and narrow. Thts Is an Indi cation that the hobble effect Is to be advocated for the spring season. Inquiries aro solicited and may be addressed caro ot this newspaper.

The boys edged around, and were standing opposite the girls In a few. minutes. There was Kircllntr from' the girls about tho dance of the night before. Pretty soon ono of tho boys tipped his hat and said "Good eve ning, girls." Oh, me, oh, my, how those girls wer Insulted I Up sho,t their noses Into he air and away they walk-. 1 down the fltreet. Gracious, gracious, they hadn't said a word to those awfu't boys and thoy were attempting t . flirt with them ! Thero wero others standing on that corner who smiled. How utterly absurd It In for girls to blamo boys for teaklnc to them when they teem to Invite them to In every way except to say the actual words.

The boys havo been vt-ritlng a number when they hav had leisure. You are very young, .dear, to be thinking of love nffalrs. Continue, to write friendly letters nnd do not add "loe" and such messages. You should return 'the letter to him. It was not meant for you nnd you have not the right to keep it. Consult your mother about entertaining the boy when ho comes. You might ask him to dinner and nsk another girl nnd boy and go iu 11m menu,, ur inowes uiier dinner.
