VEILS FEATURED
It seems to be a universal thing
with most milliners so far this season
that veils draped over the hats and
made a pert of the hat itself are to be
i very large item. Particularly do thoy

embroidered, mesh veil, not only in
)lack and brown, which has hud quite
t little mention, but even in other coi

another and come up with something
thtj- had seen, either a worm or some
small creature and the Dragonfly
v.ould laugh each time. "Buzz, buzz,
they caught a silly worm; how wise
am 1 that I stay here out of their
reai:h."
By and by along came some of
Dragonfly's relations and alighted on
the pund. "Snap. snap, snap." went
the ducks and three of the fliee were
gone.
"Buzz, buzz," laughed Dragonfly
again. "How wise am I to stay out
of reach while my silly relatives are
cau g!it." ,
The ducks sailed away and Dragon
fly wont sleep, but when he awoke
the ducks were under tiie bush again
catching flies, and afrain Dragonfly
laughed. "Buzz, buzz, how silly are
all my cousin flies; iiiere they go on
tlie pond and let the ducks catch them,
while I ant the very biggest fly of all
and no one can reach me because I
am so wise "
"Buzz, buzz, how funny they all look
flying down on the pond and being
gobbled up. Buzz, buzz."
It was Dragonfly's last buzz, for he
laughed so hard he tumbled off the
leaf where he sat, right on the pond
in front of a duck, who gobbled him
up before he knew \shat had happened
to him.
Those who laugh at the misfortunes
of others often come to grief them
selves.?(Copyright, 1010. by the

c.ipable wf whipping well. In cook
ing. ii can be satisfactorily poached
or soft-boiled; It has not absorbed!
foreign, disagreeable odors; its em
bryo shall not li.ivc developed apprc- i
ciably; the yolk should be fairly stiff |
and well rounded; the white should not
ho watery; the chalazu shall be wo!i
d?' fined.
