The New Jabot.
Amors ? Kroup of pretty little acces
sories stamped ready to work is a Dutch
collar an<l jabot.
The collar is deep and is cut into broad
points, cach one finished with small scal
loped buttonhole, edge.

A striking design for a >ilk bodice for wear with tailored
suits is presented i 11 the sketch today. 1 he color of the silk
should be fliat of .the suit, with embroidery and finishings in
harmonious tones. 1 lie bodice is cut with a wide pleat on each
shoulder, which runs to the \\ai>t line. The sleeves arc to the
| elbow and finished by a quaint lace ruffle. There is a shallow
yoke of tucked net bordered by a broad band of contrasting
silk and around the neck edge are two rows of gilt cord, and
above this a collar of lace. Across the front is a pretty em
broidery design in various shades of silk.
Umbrella Handles.
The very newest tiling iti an umbrella
handle is acid-eaten wood, 'i .ie handle
is first fashioned from ordinary wood in
the usual way and is then treated with
a very strong acid, which cats into the
wood. This results in delicate traceries
of palest green, so that the nandle re
sembles a branch of a tree upon which
the gray-green moss has formed. It is
extremely dainty and, of course, novel.
An ultra-fashionable umbrella is in the
directoire style, the long acid-eaten han
dle measuring eighteen inches from the
ends of the ribs to the crook at the top.
This opera crook, or, as it is sometimes
called, the Prince of Wales, is going to
be immensely popular this season.
Strongelv enough, the up-to-date umbrella
will be mounted upon a hannle either a
very decided round crook or else a stick
ending in a mushroom top. The ordinary
bent handle is decidedly passe, but tnere
are very many variations of the mush
room finish, if this cannot be said of the
Carved wood handles are also new. 1
saw an umbrella with a very beautiful
handle, carved and then tinted, and the
covering of black silk. This was a bar
gain, for the handle was exceed.ngly un
common looking. If one ca to pay
higher there were exquisitely. Mtr ved han
dles to choose from.
In the cheaper grades the mis ion han
dles are prefe. red. These, however, are
improved upon this season by being
mounted or decorated with gun metal ef
fects. Squaro handles are topped witn
round and oblong metal caps delicate.y
Sterling silver is also used upon um
brella handles this year, but as a rule
alone. Mother of pearl and silver, iti
combination, are entirely absent from
the display of fashionable umbrellas,
while only a very few years ago this
was preferred to almost any other.
The silver mountings are, on the whole,
in the French gray finish, rather than
the bright. In fact, very little bright
metal is seen; gold not at all. A pretty
handle was a very dark wood topped by
an oval of smooth bright silver set into
a chased rim of the metal, dull finished.
The oval tops are more convenient for
carrying than the. large round mush
room shape; but when the latter is bent
it is quite easy to carry. Some of the
larger mushroom heads look like small
sunflowers, and, when picked out in' lines
with metal, the impression is intensified.
Women of exclusive taste will like the
handles mounted in tortoiseshell. Um
brellas so fitted come a little more ex
pensive, but the handle will last forever,
so that the frame can be recovered time
and again.
An odd-looking hannle in mission wood
is three-sided and is mounted with a
three-cornered cap in gun metal and
wood. This is inexpensive.
While black is always in demand, col
ors are usually sought for as spring ap
proaches. Browns, greens and navy blues
are always in good style, and hitherto
the changeable effects have come under
the same heading. This season only the |
solid colors are to be worn, consequently '
umbrellas of changeable silk are to be
bought very cheaply. If one wishes a
color to match the costume worn they
must be prepared to pay higher prices.
The umbrellas used for mourning still
display handles of jet, though the latest
novelty is an ebony handle topped with
the carved heads of a trio of French
poodles grouped together.
Gun metal mounted handles are used
with mourning toilets, but the metal must
be plain, no tracings or introduction of
a brighter metal or of white stones bein?
admissible. ELIZABETH LEE

Care of Hands.
A person who lias not good linger nail*
naturally and is trying to make them
shapely must sive .greatest heed to the
cuticle at the base of the nails.
Almost without exception homely nails
are wide and shallow in form, and it is
by deepening them that improvement will
be made.
To work in any way upon the cutiele at
the sides is th^ greater mistake that ran
be made. If 11ic flesh there is once loos
ened it will not go ba?-k again, but will
ihang a'Nay slightly, causing the nail to
be broader than it was originally. While
any broken bits of skin which adhere to
th<; sides must be removed always with
an orangewood stick, it must be done in
such a manner that the structure sur
rounding the nail is not weakened.
Directly the contrary theory applies to
the base of the nails, however. At that
point all that can be done Is to work the
skin down, and by lengthening the sur
face give a less square appearance to the
finger tips. It is by pushing the cuticle
hack with a stick and with a dull knife
gently lifting the tight edge from the
nail, to which it naturally clings, that
the best results will be obtained.
Two thing* to be borne in mind at this
part of the work arc that-nothing should
be attempted without first soaking the
fingers for at least live minutes in warm
soapy water, that the. skin may be soft
ened. Tiie other detail is to avoid press
ure on the surface while working. If the
nails are subjected to punches or pokes
from the knife or wooden stick white
spots will apppar, not to be obliterated
until time brings them to the top edge
to be filed off.
Still another important part of proper
nails treatment is that in filing at the top
<they should never be cut. scissors or
clippers thickening thpni) the upper edge
at the sides must not be shortened below
the flesh, an act which may be done with
out hurting the individual in the least.
The effect, however, will be to take
away the prop to the flesh, and the finger
tips will broaden in consequence.
Grease in liberal quantities should be
used at all times upon the nails, the ap
plication to be rubbed down below the
cuticle at the base. If the lower parts of
the nails are treated in this manner every
night the flesh cannot adhere to the sur
face and a distinct gain Is made in the
improvement process. Cold cream or
vaseline are good for the purpose.
Rubbing the Angers with a lotion al
ways after washing the hands will im
prove the condition of the tips.
Caraway Cakes.
For the raised cookies, beat to a cream
a half pound each sugar and butter. Add
two and a half pounds pastry flour and
mix well. Make a hole in the center of
the mixture and pour in a cupful of luke
warm milk with half a compressed yeast
cake dissolved in it. Let the batter stand
overnight and in the morning add an
ounce of caraway seed and beat vigor
ously. Set the batter in a warm place
to rise, and when double its bulk roll out
until about a quarter of an inch thick.
Cut into oblong cakes about two and a
half inches wiae by five inches in length.

Why Not Now ?
The Left-Overs.
One of the most intricate points in
household economy is that of utilizing
"left-overs" is an attractive and ap
petizing manner. It is said by the
French cooks that the American house
wives arc extravagant, and what they
throw away or waste would keep a
French family for two days. However
true the statement may be, it is at
least worthy of attention at the pres
ent prevailing: meat prices, and the
sooner the household leakages are :
stopped the greater peace of mind will I
dwell with the provider.
Ju buying the marketer must look'
at the piece of meat with an eye to;
judge just how many times it" may I
appear in disguise after the tirst serv- j
ing without arousing the family's sus- i
pieion. For if a roast appears on the i
table three or four times in the same j
form, its edges dried and the platter I
covered with the fragments of the last |
carving, one may bow to it as a time- I
honored acquaintance, but the odors j
that floated from a nearby restaurant
on the way home have aroused an ap
petite that this joint seems inadequate
to appease, even accompanied by its
?"canned'' assistants or the first "aids"
to the hurry-up meal.
? Now let us assume that the house
hold partner knows the secrets of good
living1 and purchases for dinner a leg
of lamb weighing, say. seven and a
half pounds and costing about $1.30 to
*1.according to prices in the neigh
borhood in which it is purchased. The
leg bone, which, though always weighr
ed up. is usually left with the butcher,
should be cracked and ten cents' worth
of other white bones sent home with it
for soup. A tive-cent hunch of soup
greens and a ten-cent can of tomatoes
makes a soup for two days: the tirst
day with the vegetables in it, the sec
ond day strained and with noodles or
tiny dumplings added, '('he tirst day
.the lamb is served with potatoes roast
ed with the meat, a good gravy and
a can of peas, followed by a crispy
salad, then an inexpensive prune puff
pudding and a good cup of coffee,
making a four-course dinner, simple,
yet awfully tastv.
The next day the dinner starts with the
clear soup with noodles or dumplings,
then a platter of thinly sliced lamb gar
nished with deviled ?*ggs and v.i.tercress,
and a platter of thinly sliced hot iamb
in the gravy left from the day before.
Mashed potatoes and fried par.-nips are
the vegetables. This is followed by a
simple celery and apple salad, and a
cream rice custard, hot or iced, and
coffee, which finishes the second four
course dinner.
Now. for the third dinner all the meat
that is left is chopped tine and with a
suspicion of onion made into croquettes,
to be fried a delicate brown. This is nre
ceded by a cream of celery soup. The
croquettes have a tomato sauce. baked
potatoes and stewed corn are the vege
tables and are followed by a cream
cheese salad. The dessert is apricot pie
and coffee. Thus ended the leg of lamb
having supplied three dinners with needed
A roast of beet' may be similarly
treated and the results be quite as
astonishing. A calf's head that costs
in the neighborhood of ."n cents, dressed
and split, is a mine of good eating if !
properly managed. T!>.e brains may be ?
iVnioved. boiled in* slightly salted water'
for twenty minutes, blanched, chopned !
and made Into delicious fritters. The I
rest of the head sbould be .boiled witli]
a savory soup bunch, a slice of lemon,
clove and a bay leaf. When the cheeks
are done remove them carefully to a
covered dish where they will keep warm.
A ilttle later, when the tongue, is done,
remove that and .skin it. and when it is
cool, dice it. and set it away, leaving
the root part to chop with the other
meat that falls from the boius. Strain
the soup, let it cool, and then remove
the grease?the smaller particles with
white blotting paper?then return to the
fire and add the seasoning a wineglass
of sherry, thin slices of lemon and the
diced tongue, li may bo :? trifle thick

At dinner serve the soup. t!i< >n the cheeks
with tomato dressing and garnished with
watercress, l.akcd potatoes, punned spin

apple fritters and colTee.
For the second dinner servo the re
mainder of the soup, brain fritters v.ith

and pa 15-1 < y. Follow tliis with green pep
pers stuffed with the savory meat mid
baked, mashed potatoes and creamed as
paragus. Svlad romairo. with crackers
and cheese, a d*?ep dish apple pie and
coffee complete tiie menu. This makes a
soup and meat course fo - two good din
ners at h cost of about 30 rents, and
the trouble taken makes the meals eoual
to any prepared by a first-class chef. The
little tasty entrees that may be concocted
by skillful hands add a touch of elegance
to a simple meal and are a vital adjunct
to the accuired knowledge of the student
of domestic science.
'"Don't you all want my recipe for
creolc kisses and thy grandmother's
plunket - that I brought up with me from
Alabama?!* asked a brown-eyed south
ern girl the oilier afternoon at a studio
tea. "They're mighty nice, and you can
make them even in one of your liny lit- ,
tie kitchenettes if you've got an\ kind
of an oven.
Creole Kisses.
"For tiie kisses you add a pound of con- '
fectioner's sugar to the whites of Fix !

a teaspoonful of cream of tariar and beat '
until stiff enough to stand alone. Flavor '

and drop on maniia paper, not buttered.
Bake to a very light brown in a slow

Grandmother's Plunkets.
"Grandmother's plunkets have to be
baked in gem pans, but you can get
dandy little pans that will bake a half
dozen at a time, and they are mighty
nice to keep on hand for ginger cakes
and hot muffins. I will give you the whole
rule, but you can divide it and make half
at a time if you wish to. Heat a half
pound of butter to a cream, adding grad
ually a half jHJund of sugar. Separate
six eggs, whites and \ oik*-, and heat the

of the operation, or the cakes won't turn

Household Hints.
Never store food for any length of time
j in paper bags. The paper of such bags
; is manufactured from coarse and dirty
1 rags, which are. however, to some ex
! tent, cleansed and sterilized during manu
facture, but the paste with which the bags
are stuck is usually of the coarsest de
1 scription. Good tins or earthenware or
glass jars with well-fitting lids answer th?
purpose best.
In starching lii.ens and similar good*
too light t'ur mourning starch and too
i dark for the white, put in the boiling
| starch a large piece of tissue paper in
shade to match a.- nearly as possible the
dress material. This will dissolve, and
when the starch is strained nothing but
thd dye will remain, making a starch of
the exact color desired.
This is a good hint for the woman who
does much color embroidery of the stiffly
j starched variety.
Pantry windows often recjuiie shading,
either fr<*n the sun or from passersby.
This may be cheaply and satisfactorily
done in the following manner: Cut white
tissue paper the sire of panes, smear the
glass all over with milk, then prens the
