Actors and actrossas probably will And It a time whan the public la responsive and ap preciative. Neptune, Venus and Jupiter rule strongly for good this day, according to astrology. Mercury alone Is In malefic aspect The autumn is likely to bring extra ordinary, conditions in amusement en terprises. The outlook is exceedingly favorable for whatever is good. Music -will gain popular favor, dur ing the coming weeks, and It is prophesied that after the war popular concerts at which the beet ia offered will to a great extent vie with motion pictures in public favor. Women have the promise of growing success in all lines of work, but ex tremes will be common in their ex periences, since the war will restore old occupations as well as It will de velop new vocations. Nursing and the care of dependents, housework, sewing and even weaving will be im perative activities, but they will bo undertaken more scientifically than formerly. Warning is given that the coming months will form a period of adjust ment in all that pertains to the war. The seers declare this means the elimination of inefficiency and ex travagance and sweeping government economies. The stars that presage world-w.de reforms seem to forecast stringent rules governing the war service of women and even the return of many who have gone abroad and have proven unequal to great demands upon them. A late summer with many hot days in September again Is prognosticated. Hotel keepers, especially those at summer resorts, have the augury of large profits. Notwithstanding national campaigns for thrift large expenditures will n? made by many Americans wh) pros per by war Industries and these will receive a serious lesson, the planets indicate. Persons whose birthdate it Is prob ably will have a happy year. They should be careful about signing leg*i papers. The young will court and marry. Children born on this day will pr ably be steady, trustworthy and af : fectionate. They may be restless in thought but without any tendency to be rovers. These subjects of Virgo usually succeed best as employes. U'opjrtjht. 1*S) GRAPE CONSERVE. To three pcunds of blu? grapes washed and stemmed add half pound of sugar and half pound of corn sirup.

Honest Advertising. ?jus is a topic we all hear now-a-days because so many people are inclined to exaggerate. Yet has any physician told you that we claimed unreason able remedial properties for Fletcher's Castoria? Just ask them. We won't answer it ourselves, we know what the answer will be. That it has all the virtues to-day that was claimed for it in its early days is to be found in its increased use, the recommendation by prominent physicians, and our assurance that its standard will be maintained. Imitations are to be found in some stores and only because of the Cas toria that Mr. Fletcher created. But it is not the genuine Castoria that Mr. Fletcher Honestly advertised, Honestly placed before the public and from which he Honestly expects to receive his reward.

This morning was an "off* day on the Haskell farmers' market. The attendance was amall and buying was not very active. The best buys were peppers, eggplant, cooking apples and tomatoes. If these products are given a place whenever possible on the dally menus a material reduction In the cost of the food will result. Grapes sold to retailers mostly at 26 cents a 14-lb. basket. The Delaware variety is practically gone for this year. The Concords are almost at the height of their season. Other varieties are the Niagaras, Brlghtons and Luclles. A few of the Niagaras cost retailers 30 cents per basket, but most sales were made this morning at 25 cents. Some loose-clustered Concords were purchased by retailers for 20 cents. BAHAMAS TEMPORARILY LOWER. Retailers were able to buy bananas for very reasonable prlcei yes terday morning. They were auctioned off by the bunch for prices which made their cost to grocers, hucksters, etc., from 18 to 22 cents f>er dozen. Other wholesalers having stock which was In better keep ng condition, and therefore did not have to be disposed of quickly, were still asking up to 30 cents per dosen. Push-cart men. buying at the lower figures, were starting off asking 30 cents per dozen, or about the top price allowed on the basis of their cost. The wide range in the price of bananas given below Is accounted for by this variation in cost. The fair prices to consumers given below cover those charged by both "cash-and-carry" and ??credit-and-delivery" retailers. "Cash-and carry" retailers should sell near the lowest flaure given. Unlets other wise stated, all prices are for products of Poorer grades should sell for less. good, average quality. If consumers are charged on any day prices in excess of those on that day in the "fair-prlce-to-consumers'" column, they should immediately brinp the matter to the attention of the District of Co lumbia Food Administration.

From the way the boys were send ing home their non-regulation stuff, we dccidcd that they were going to i be moved from the down state camp. ! Boh couldn't get a furlough. None of the private soldiers had home leave. So their relatives moved on that town by families and turned the hotel into a barracks for women. We drove down. Chrystabel In my car, and Betty Atwood, Bob's cousin, and Lucy Dennis who was engaged to Grant Searle, Bob's chum. My mother and an auto load of other mothers made a heavy allowance of chaperons. It was a dreadful time for I saw Bob only an hour or two a day. At the end of the week it wan hinted that the colonel would be pleased to have the relatives leave town before the soldiers entrained. Then some hospitable citiien had to spring a dinner-dance at the country club, and spoil our lsst hour with our men. It wa?i an early dinner and a short dance, to suit the soldier'i ho lis o.T duty. Grant and Lucy enlivened the occa sion by sending out for a minister and getting married. The chaperors all cried and the younger girls giggled hysterically. Chrys, calm as en oyster, whispered to me, "Now, Lucy'* sure nobody else will get Grant's insurance money." If I could ever loathe anybody, it would be Chrystabel Because she's Bob's twin I really ought to love her. I suppose, but if ever there were an example of sex antagonism-like poles repelling each other?it's the feeling between Chrys and me. She's responsible for nay quarrel with Bob. Dr. Hamilton Certels drove | down in his powerful car. at the lest minute, and he would never have had an czeuM to come except to see Chrys. He's about engaged to her. And If he hadn't come, I wouldn't be weeping now. Just after he entered the ballroom. Bob was called to the phone?long distance. He was gone for hours and hours, it seemed to me. Now If this is to be a real ?'Con fessions," I suppose I've got to tell all the disagreeable truths about my self. What happened next shows how big oaks grow from acorns and big sorrows from little mistakes. I could always get Tony Curt away from any other girl. So now I simply snitched him from Chrys just to pay her for what she said concerning Lucy and Grant/a insurance. A smile did \i. As soon as Bob went to the phone, I smiled on Tony quite casually. In one minute, he had found another partner for Chrys and in tw<* minutes he was kissing my finger tips in that fetching foreign way he persists in. Bob stayed so long that Dr. Certeis has as many dances as he asked for and that was a good many. It re minded me of the time when we were pretty nearly engaged. Nobody noticed except Chrystabel The others were all having some pretty hard emotional partings. Well, I wanted my hard parting moment, too?but my husband seemed quite able to get on without them. As for Chrys. I didn't care what she wanted. Getting even with her is go ing to be one of mv daily pleasures from now on. It will be easy, when Toney Is around, and pleasing, too. for Hamilton Certeis can be the most fascinating man in the world when he wants to be. He can talk cleverly when Bob would be dumb. He and Bob are absolutely different in everything. My husband came up at last, and as they stood side bv side, I realized that the two were the most stubborn, willful and masterful m#*n I would ever know. . I can't imagine anything so terrible as to have those two wills opposed to each other. (To be continued.) SUMMER CARE OF BABY: HIS BOTTLE AND BATH Here lire simple rule* for keeping baby safe and comfortable In August. They are complied by the American Association for the Study and Pre vention of Infant Mortality and are published by the United States Public Health Service. Bottle-fed babies require special care as their food Is the most frequent source of infant Illness. Unless the mother Is buying milk already pasteurized at the dairy she should pasteurise It herself by this process. Prepare enough milk for all the feedings given during twenty-four hours. Have a separate feeding bot tle for each feeding. Pour the milk into the clean, sterilized bottles, and stopper each bottle with a wad of absorbent cotton. Place all the bot tles in a wire tray or basket and set the basket In a large paa Oiled with cool water deep enough to cover the milk in the bottles but leave the tops above the water. Bring the water to a boil and allow it to boil hard for five minutes. Remove the vessel from the heat and allow cool water to run into the pan until the milk is entirely cooled. Remove the milk bottles and put on ice 6r in the refrigerator until ready for use. Leave the cotton stop per in place until time to replsce it with the nipple. Before feeding each bottle warm the milk by setting it in a vessel of very warm water for a few minutes. Do not allow the milk to become hot. Hold the bottle for the baby through out the feeding. Do not allow baby to drink longer than twenty minutes, or coax It to take more food than it wants. Between milk feedings offer the baby drinka of cool boiled water from sterilized bottles. When the baby has diarrhoea, either with or without vomiting, stop all feedings at once. Give the babv ow# teaspoonful of castor oil and i?lenly of boiled water to drink.

To Insure the housewife and the nation against the waste of money that is spent for food, and against waste of food itself, the United States Bureau of Education has is sued the following suggestions for the use and oare of food after pur chaae: Buy food carefully. Watch for food sales as carefully an dry goods sales. Do not buy fruits snd vege tables out of season. Buy bulk goods. Insist on full measures and accurate weights. See that the butcher sends you all fat and bone trimmings from meat purchases. Handle food carefully. Do not spill, break, or soil packages. Put perishable foods on lea at onoe. Store fruita and vegetables in cool, dry place. Keep flours and cereals in clcan. covered containers In cool place. Cooked foods to be saved should be cooled quickly, covered, kept in cold place and used as soon sa possible. Store butter snd eggs when cheap snd abundant. Can and dry fruits and vegetables as thay coma Into season. In preparing food para fruits and vegetables, close, or cook with the skins on. In cooking do not waate food by acorching burning, under cooking, or by unpalatable combina tions. Eliminate or reduce tha expensive Ingredients of recipes. Reduce the number of egga, amount of fat and milk. Dispense with garnishes of bacon, eggs, toast, etc. Substitute cheaper foods for expen sive ones. Use cottage cheese, baked beans, peas, fish, eggs and milk for meat Use skim milk, sour milk and buttermilk in place of whole milk and cream. Use potatoes and rice as fre quent substitutes for bread. Use com or nut oila and msrgarin as butter substitutes, and molasses, honey and corn syrup for white sugar. Use ce reals and meals instead of all white flour. Use absolutely accurate measure ments in cooking. Use every bit of chicken fat, beef drippings, bacon fat, aoup bones, vegetable stalks, leaves, roots, skins, etc. in every wsy possible. Serve all foods attractively and In imrtions small enough to avoid waste Up* Individual butter pats and sugar dishes. Use a bread board on the table to prevent waate slices. Economise by eliminating extra courses in meals by serving no re freshments at social entertainments and by stopping "between-meal" lunches. In clearing the table after meals save the single slice of bread, the half cup of milk and scraps of meat and fat. Utilize all left-overa? celery leaves and rice water for soup; sour snd skim milk, cooked egKS, dry cheese, etc. Confessions of a Wife. Mateless Women Are Rudderless Ships. "Why.
