! SNOWFLAKE SEASON DEMANDS
FUR ON TOQUE AND TIPPET
The "winter of our discontent" will
never appear to clever women who
are careful to provide a smart hat and
a touch of fur on their costumes for
the snowflake season.
Winter is more taxing to the slender
purse than summer, for the materials
that mean warmth and good style are
costlier than cotton frocks, and fur
and velvet hats are more expensive
than straw and flowers. The com
paratively high cost of winter street
clothes makes it a real economy to in
vest in materials whose fine quality
and durability will make long and con
to society. It will be their first "at
home" since their marriage last July.
They have been spending the week
end in New York, but are expected
back today or tomorrow.

Time Brings Joy
As the Hours Pass the Coming of
Baby Draws Nearer?Are
No woman awaiting the joy of
'coitiing motherhood should allow
the days to pass without using the
wonderful penetrating application.
By its regular use throughout the
period the system is prepared for
the coming ?vent and strain and
tension is relieved. It renders the
broad, flat abdominal muscles
pliant and they readily yield to na
ture's demand for expansion. As a
result the nerves are not drawn
upon with that peculiar wrenching
"train, and nausea. nervousness,
i oearing-down and stretching pains
are counteracted. The abdomen ex
pands easily when baby arrives and
the hours at the crisis are natur

stant wear a pleasure. A good-look
ing hat, bit of neck fur and a muff
will make tho simplest coat or suit
look handsome. Here are three sug
gestions for accomplishing that end.
At the left is a large hat suited
either for street wear or formal occa
sions. It is of black panne velvet,
with a huge, softly crushed crown.
The crown is banded with a narrow
ribbon and a smart bow of black jet.
A rather narrow band of black lynx
finishes the coat collar and is repeat
ed in the muff.
The return of the fur "tippet" is
demonstrated by the models in the
center and at the left. A small fur
col tar has replaced the sweeping stole
and la quite as smart as the cape
coats of wealthier sisters. This set Is
of mink and the clever fur toque is
airily tipped with feathers. There is
a muff to match the hat and scarf.
The demure lady at the left wears
a clever conceit of fur with her smart
threa-comered hat of brown panne
velvet and smoky puff of brown os
trich. The foundation of the scarf s*t
is seal brown brocdcloth and the fur
bandings are mink. The pillow of the
muff is embroidered in shaded bronze
and brown silk, and striped with rows
of brown chenille. Balls of the same
dangle from both muff and ecarf.

KEEPING UP WITH HUBBY.
By DOROTHY DIX
THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PAID WOMAN WRITER
Fifteen years ago. when they wen
married, they were a poor yovni
couple with scarcely a penny witl
which to bless theselves. They went
to live in a little two-by-four flat,
and the husband worked early and
late, and the wife did her own cook
ing, washing and sewing, and scrimped
on every nickel.
The young husband had brains, and
energy, and ambition, and In fifteen
years" of pushing hard work he hai
made his way from Grub street to
the sunny side of Easy streets Today
I he is at the head of his own business
i a comparatively rich man. and Is mak
ing money with both fists. In a few
| more years he will be a very ricli
j This man's childhood was hard and
'stunted by poverty. His boyhood and
1 early youth were filled with struggle
and strain, with strenuous effort and
self denial. Now that his efforts have
borne fruit he naturally wishes to eat
of it He wishes to live luxuriously,
to have a beautiful home, to weai
good clothes, to have a good mot""
car. to eat pood food, to travel, and
do the things that he has always
wanted to do all of bis life.
He loves his wife dearly. He ap
preciates to the fullest all the heir
she gave him in their early married
life, and he wants to dress her beau
tifully. and for her to go about with
him and have a good time. too. But
while the husband has expanded with
his prosperity to meet his new life,
the wife has still stayed spiritually
and mentally back in the little two
by-four flat In which they started.
So far the husband has given In to
his little piker wife and has stayed
put by the dull little family radiator
of an evening. But he is getting very
restless, and those who are watching
this little domestic tragedy in the
making are wondering how long it
will be before he will break away and
find some other woman who will help
him get some fun out of his money
by spending it. , . ...
When he discovers the lady it will
break his wife's heart, and she will
oonsider herself a martyr, but. in real
ity she will be the one who is to
blame for the catastrophe, because
her husband tried to take her along
with him into pleasant pastures, and
she refused to go.
She is so stupid that she cannot
see that a man has to have a play
mate as well as a work mate and that
if a wife will not play with her hus
band he is very apt to find some other
woman who will. Also, she is ?o
ignorant of life that she does not
know that man always spends his
money on some woman, and that if
his wife will not let him spend It on
her. some other woman will.
It is a matter of common observa
tion that a man's success In the. out
side world so often brings disaster
upon him. and that about the time
the self made man acquires a place
in the sun he generally also acquires
i This Is invariably set down as the
man's fault, and many tears are shed
< over the pathetic lot of his forsaken
' old wife. The truth is that in the
^ majority of cases the blame is wholly
J the wife's, and the reason that she
has been left behind is because she
I refused to come along. The man
I would have been glad for her to come
along with him if she would haTe
done so. hut she refused. She wouldn't
kee>p step with him. She wouldn't
prepare herself to go where he wai
going, and till rcault was the fate
that happend to all lacg*irds. The pro
cession swept on without her.
In such cases the husband Is Ju?t
as much entitled to our sympathy as
the wife. If It is sad for the woman
who Is left behind. It is equally sad
for the man who must go on without
her. He too is lonely, and his lone- j
ltness is tinged by a sense of injustioe
because he knows that the tragedy j
might have been averted if only his
wife had had the strength to break
away from old ideas and habits that
she had. and if she had had the pluck
and industry to improve herself and
raise herself as he has done.
The shadow and the triumph of
many a great man that takes all the
glory out of his day Is th? grubby

even try to understand the things
that interest him. and who hags and
