Her Secret j "How do you manage to give such delightful entertainments with only one maia"? a young society matron in quired of an acquaintance. 4'Any one would think you had a" French chef. For one thing how. do you make your perfect soups?" "I don't. I use Soups "I find they are just as good as I could pos sibly make. Just as dainty; just as pure; just as rich. They have the real home flavor and quality. And you can prepare them in no time." "So that's the reason?is it?why your fine dinners are always on the minute?" ''That helps a lot. Such high-grade food products are really one of the best answers to the 'help question'. In fact they make the whole living question easier. Try them your self, and see." A suggestion is given above to those who contemplate southern trips or desire to grasp Father Time by his proverbial forelock, and do at least a part of their summer sewing now. This design would be pretty developed in plain batiste or swiss in the thin-figured fabrics. The foundation is very plain; the bodice and sleeves in one, the skirt high-waisted and slightly gathered all around. There arc two parts to the skirt joined by lace insertion, put on in the outline of an apror. There I5 another band of lace above the hem. The upper band or in sertion on the skirt continues over the shoulders in the back ending in a deep point in the front. There is additional trim ming of twisted satin ribbon, which adds much to the gown's effectiveness. IDEAS FOR DECORATION OF HOME INTERIORS Plan for Utilizing Spacc to Best Advantage. Proper Colors to Be Used in Various Rooms. Women who are the happy possessors of small country or suburban houses and who are considering alterations and re furnishings may perhaps find some use ful suggestions in the plans made by a woman artist for the furnishing of her own small house in a little town not far from Washington. In the first place the plan shows an at tractive way of utilising one large room for living room and dining room. The woman in question has left only one par tition standing in the lower part of her house, and that one separates the kitch en from all the rest of the floor. One end of the large room, which has thus been made from three small ones, Is de votfd to the purpose of a dining room. The wall at this end of the room has been cut away entirely, and a long win dow set in. Beneath this window and reaching all around the room there is a wooden wainsocting. A wooden s^at is built into this end of the room, the upper part of the wainscoting forming the back of the seat. The seat is carried around the sides nf the room for a long enough distance t<? form two end seats for the dining table. The dining table is to be placed in front of this long window seat so that three sides of the table are thus provided with seats. By placing two straight chairs on tlie opposite side of the table you have disposed in a very small space of all that is necessary in a dining room. Next the window a dresser is built into the wall. The lower part of the dresser is made up of closet space. The middle part is open and shows two long shelves on which pottery and pewter are arranged. Tin. top shows a row of small closets reaching to the ceiling. In the other end of the room there is a fireplace built of r-d brick. Along the wal*, between the fireplace and the din ing room end, there are bookcases built in, also another long window and s>?at. The Dutch colors have been selected as the most at Tractive for this quaint room, j At the windows arc curtairs of unblea'h ed muslin, with borders of Delft blue in cross stitch. The tiny curtains which arc used inside the small sla^s doorF' of the dresser are of wide cotton material figured with a small design in Delft blue. The side window sen is upholstered in plain blue denim and the cushions are blue and white?all of different designs of linen nnd cotton material. The only rugs for this room arc the old-faphioned blue and white crocheted rugs, which are so effective in round ami oval shapes The woodwork is all stained in a dark color, as is the floor. The upper part of the wall above the wainscot is painted a deep yellow. The furniture is of the plinest mission designs. The ornaments are the Delft pieces shown on the dress er. platters, and mugs of Dutch pew ter and brass and copper pieces. There are very few pictures, and nil are repro ductions of the Dutch masters, framed in narrow black frames. The dining table is to fit into its place properly. It must be cither a long oval shape or a rectangular shape. The table seat is of stained dark wood and is not upholstered. Not only the main room of this house but the entire dwelling is devoted to the Dutch color.-. The small kitchen lias a shining floor and walls of yellow paint, and the woodwork 'ti white. The shelves are full of white and yellow pottery, blue and white ename! and glittering brass and copper utensils. The small bedrooms are all furnished in Dutch colors, one hung with blue and white chintz, and another, just to re lieve the color scheme, is decorated with draperies of gay tulip chintz, showing all i the pinks and reds of the brightest tulip i bed. The furniture for these upper rooms ! is all of white enamel, the woodwork ivory in tone and the floors stained dark walnut. The walls are wainscoted in white wood, and above this covered' with burlap. One room is in blue, one in ivory and the other, that with the tulip chintz hangings, is a sage green.

BRADFIELD REGULATOR CO., Atlanta, Ga. Cooking Shell Fish. To prepare sea food, especially shell fish, for cooking and eating1 Is a sealed mystery to many at home cooks. They are often prepared in a way which makes the eaters ill, which makes them come to the conclusion that the flsh was not fresh. In reality the trouble lay In the way the food was cookcd. It Is a matter of more or less specula tion a9 to what happens to sea food en route front the water to the table, which, if carefully looked into, might answer the ptomaine poisoning question. The housekeeper should be sure to remember the fact that there are 110 bargains in fish. The reputable fishmonger recog nizes but one kind, and that is "fresh fish." He cares for it properly until pur chased and sent home, when it is the rook's lookout. Oysters and clams, fresh from market, should be placed in a bas ket and set on the sandy cellar bottom. If they are to be kept several days they may have a bit of damp seaweed thrown over them and should be sprinkled with a little wet cornmeal. Quantities are kept annually in this way in seaport towns and no one. seems to be made ill from eating them. Soft Shell Crabs. Hard shell crabs may be kept In the same way, but the shrdders and soft shell crabs, in season, have to be packed in seaweed and placed in a cold place, for they ?re poor keepers at best. If a crab is afflicted with nerves at all, it is at this stage of his career, and the hard shells, realizing the fact, protect them in every way until their shell is hard enough* to make it safe for them to fight their own battles. Eels must be kept in water until they are used or they die. Lobsters may be kept for days where it Is damp and coo! and are all right as long as they are lively. lobsters are cooked by plunging them into boiling salt water alive. Those weighing three pounds or less require thirty minutes and those heavier forty tlve minutes. Cool them slowly. Do not put them on the ice at all until thoroughly cold. When cold remove the claws, crack the large ones and use the small ones as a garnish. Insert the thumb at the base of the flexible tail and separate it from the body. Then remove the body from the shell, but do not take anything from the head. Remove the white meat carefully and avoid the "dead men" pro tecting ca-h side from the shell. Flatten the tail and i-plit the ribs, so that the meat may le removed in one piece. In sert a sharp knife, laying back the meat at either side, and remove the dark string and bulb at the end of the tail. This is the intestine, which may contain on oc casion something injurious to the human stomach. Do not open the lobster any longer than possible before serving, as it loseo its flakiness. To Cook Hard Shell Crabs. Hard crabs are also cooked by plung ing into boiling water, twenty minutes if they are good sized. When they are cold remove the claws, raise the apron with the ahumb nail and insert the thumb at the back of the shell and remove tiie body. Pull away the "dead men" and re move the white meat. Avoid the eyes and the gall bag back of them. When all meat is removed place in the ice box to cool. They are ready to use in any way liked best. Soft shells must be quickly handled. The fat they are to be fried in should be hot and ready. A beaten egg and soine crack er dust should be at hand to roll them in and blotting paper to drain them on. Cut out the gali sack and the eyes quickly, raise tiie apron and remove the small in testines. raise the points of the shell on either side, and remove the "dead men." rinse in cold water, dip in tiie egg and cracker crumbs and drop into hot fat. Srrve with tartare sauce. To prepare the popular sole, or rather flounder, to file?, it must be skinned, boned and the flesh cut into strips. It is then lolled and caught by tiny wooden skewers. Roll in rgv; crumbs, dust with rep j er and salt and draw a sprig of parsley through the roll. Then it is ready for the hot fat. JEANNETTE NORTON. Market Basket Baby. A charining-looking young woman en tered a Washington street car recently bearing a market baskrt with exceeding care. So marked, indeed, was her solici tude in regard to the basket that several of tiie passengers became interested, es pecially as she was not at all the tort of pc.son whom one usually sees carrying home her own purchases In a market basket. When a peculiar gurgling sound came from the basket the passengers were aroused to a still keener interest in its- contents. The elderly lady who sat next to the young woman could restrain her curiosity no longer. "Is it." she de- \ manded. "really a baby that you have there?" The young woman gave vigorous assent, j "The nicest baby in- the world," she said "I have a perambulator for him. hut it is so much nicer to carry him around this way that I never use the carriage.
