Washington Herald by Dr. Martha McGlynn, famous wom an's health expert. By DR. MARTHA McOLYNN Until we know something definite about the nature of the germ which causes Influenza and the method of Its transmission, the best advice that can be given on the avoidance of Influenza, and its twin danger, pneumonia, is this: Keep the body in good condition, so that the re sistance to any and all disease will be high. To women, young or old, I would say: Dress sensibly and in accord ance with the weather. One of tfce principal things I would warn against is the foolish fashion or habit of young girls who think It is necessary to wear thin-soled low cut shoeqfahd thin silk stockings in the middle of winter. Most "colds" are caught by exposure of the sur face skin to low temperatures. Low shoes and thin hosiery in winter are a positive danger. No grirl, for fash ion's sake, or because she thinks her ankles are pretty, should wear anything but stout, high shoes in winter, and in extreme weather woolen stockings. The ankles and feet are one of the main sources of danger In lowering vitality and re sistance to disease. field, Mass.; Mrs. Edward Munson and Mrs. James McAndrews. Mrs. Walter R.

There was a thing I had to know before I left Mary Thomas' house.

He doesn't want Tiny tc come to his office. So they meet here." "Then lf? 'Kismet' for me to come face to face with him aome day," 1 insisted and I laughed?perhaps tor gayly.

The dark senoritas of Spain have drawn aside their mantilla** and we nave admired their combs so much that they ar< showing them in our s*hops now. Some for evening are set with glittering rhineatones, while others are plain enough for the most tailored of street clothes. Block designs have indeed found favor with us. Now they have in vaded the realm of petticoats nnd in different colors trim the flounces of some Jersey ones shown by the F street shops. On at least one spring suit I ! ave come across, buttons are used for naught save trimming. This ore i? of beige velour de laine. Many claim the skirt even more attrac tive than the coat. It buttons down v.wa 18 h|Ph"w?isted and has a bib and suspenders that may be detached at will. The coat liang-s open and has the only pocket about the suit.
