"Well. did you have * nice tlm? at the party lut night. Baby Bunty?" aiiked Uncle WlffgUy, the day after she had danced with JohpBle Buehytall, the squirrel boy, at Alice Wlbblewobble'a entertain ment "Tea. I had a lovely time." said Baby Bunty. All of a sudden. Mr. Longears saw. coming up the woodland path. Mr. and Mrs. Wibblewobble and Grandfather Goosey Gander. "Oh. goodie." cried Baby Bunty. clapping her paws. "We're going to have company!" "Here. Baby Bunty. you stand still and talk to there while I hop on ahead and tell Nurse Jane they're coming so they won't take her by suprlse. Her tall mrfy be In curl papers for all I know." answered Uncle Wlgglly. So. while Baby Bunty kept the guests talking Uncle Wlgglly hop ped around and told Nurse Jane company was coming. "But I haven't a thing In the house to eat," said Nurse Jane. "Still I could make a hasty pud ding." she went on. "If you'd get me some corn meal." "Then I'll hop along and get It" said Uncle Wlgglly. "Won't you come up to the hollow stump bungalow and alt down?" she asked politely. "I'm sure Uncle Wlg glly and Nurse Jaire will want you to stay for tea." Meanwhile Uncle Wlgglly was hur rying through the woods with the com meal, which he had purchased at the store. Then, all of a sudden, out from behind a stumu Jumped the bad' old Pipsisewah. "Ah. ha! Hold on there! Walt! I want some of your souse!" he cried to Uncle Wiggily. "No! No! You can't catch me!" laughed Uncle Wiggily. "I have some corn meal for a very quick pudding and I am so extremely rapid that you never oan catch me! Whoop la!" Then he hopped along so much like an automobile that, race *fter him as he did. the Pipsisewah could not catch Uncle Wiggily. Copyright, 1919. by McClure News paper Syndicate. Gown Might Divert Attention of Audience, So Artist Designed Dress to Harmonize With Job There la. In this strange world, a real, lire woman who has the oppor tunlty to wear a beautiful evanin# fown every night of her life?and ahe refuaea to do It The woman la Ethel Leginska, fa mous concert planlate. Leglnska la a Arm believer in fitting the dreas to the Job?and her odd, becoming, self designed concert coetume la aa fa miliar to the musical world as the up-standing name of Paderewakl. Efficiency first Is the clothes motto of Leginska Her business and desire la to charm, and satisfy the musloaT sense of her audiences with the wlx ardry of her touch on piano fceys? hence?she dresses so as to blend her person and personality Into her pi ano? Into the music itself. The re sult is a black and white costume whose simplicity will not distract the mind of the most frivolous woman in the audience! The dress which Le gin ska has worn for five years without change of line, color, or material Is a black velvet suit, the coat cut In redlngote fashion, very long, without a hem?(to save weight), a plain comfortably wide skirt, a white silk brocaded waistcoat, and a white silk waist with soft cuffs and collar. Instead of French heeled satin slippers she wears comfortable low-heeled leather pumpe. and her soft dark hair is cut short?to be out of the way. Evening dress Is tabooed because it Is conspicuous, often uncomfortably chilly, and requires the wearing of a corset I>eglnska insists that to play well she must have warm hands, and her breathing must be unrestricted by tight bands. Leglnska began plan ning her working costume when she was 16. perfected it five years ago? and has stuck to It every since. For street wear the costume is of dark serge, covered by a long fur or cloth coat. For the stage and home wear It is black velvet. The artist reckons that her standardised dress has saved her several years worth of time and energy which the average woman gives to clothes?to say noth ing of money saved by dodging fash Ion shifts. j The idea of a costume to fit the job is fine?for artists who have but one big Job. If it was extended to home makers who are combination cooks, laundresses, nurses, seamstresses and fireside companions, the resulting cos tume would make a cubist painting! of a crazy quilt look as simple as a j I Greek column.! L?e?s P?irs?iniaE Amweffs T? fifier&M M?Mleirss ?iB?sta?E3is Going swimming? I have seen bathing caps at several local stores that just make you long for the chance to wear them?even if you haven't caught the swimming bug yet At one store there were some very attractive ones made of good rubber for only twenty-one cents, while those at fifty-nine were caught with many petaled roses. One green and orange cap that particularly caught my eye was finished in the front and back with fringe tassels of the rubber that looked too cute for words. At another store they were showing regular hats with soft crowns and bobbing brims that would prove a very pleasant protection in the broiling sun. A black and white tam finished with a ruffle was the jauntiest little affair. To brighten up that plain little rubber cap you've worn so long and are so attached to you may buy a fancy colored rubber band. These are worn filet-fashion, and are most coquettish. If you will send me a self-addressed, stamped envelope, I will write you just where you can find both caps and bands. Farmerette. rVir Miss How on I become a fimwrr*' - H. D.

Shortly after I wrote him a let ter came from Mother Hayes. "Did she Invite us to spend Christ mas with them, Bess?" inquired Crittenden. "No," I smiled, giving him the letter. "Well, she will in the next one you get." he made certain. "I tell you what let's do." he then sug gested. "Let's plan a Christmas Jollification. We'll ask dad and mother to visit us during the holi days and we can have Mr. Brown let Chester and Marjorie and Jack Langley and some girl to dinner."

(To Be Continued.) HOROSCOPE. Friday, Jane 13. This Is an uncertain day, according to astrology, and the stars are not re assuring to those who would take risks of any sort. The Sun and Mer cury are in malefic aspect. Saturn is friendly. It is prognosticated that much criti cism will be poured out through the press, persons in places of the Sun being dealt with severely. This is held to be but a passing phase of public thought in which Saturn will enable men who repre sent reactionary ideas to gain power Conflict Is foreshadowed by the planets, but it will be a conflict of idfeas rather than of physical forces. In this period of conflict progress will be assured and in the final an alyis what is good will be recognised. Old leaders will pain eminence for a brief time, but they will be promi nent as counselors and not as prin cipals in action. There is an encouraging sign for farmers and all who seek their sus t< nance from the earth. Mines should benefit. Again some sort of complication in volving public revenues is fore shadowed. Frauds seem to be indi cated. Mars on tfie meridian at Lisbon bodes ill for Portugal and those who rule the country. Diplomatic blunders may be un covered and the United States em "barrassed. Surprises are presaged. Trade unions come under a sway mcking for great benefits and wide extensions. Planetary influences all seem to de note the disintegration of the fortunes as well as the governments of the past. Persons whose blrthdate it Is may have much trouble in business or em ployment. They should guard against slanders and be careful about signing tapers. Chilren born on this day may be in clined to be dictatorial. Tlyy should be safeguarded against the habit of untruthfulness. .COLORED HANDKERCHIEFS. ftlmdkerchtefs can be just as no ticeable as they wish when they come in attractive colorings and patterns one little one straight from Paris is marked into four squares by a broad white line, and each square Is a dif j ferent color. 1 Tucked into a coat racket that handkerchief Is bound to make even an old suit feel rather Jaunty.
