Novel Street Suit. A Helpful Table. A LITTLE table of weights and rr.eas ures pasted in the front or back of your cook book or on a card which can be hung on the pantry wall or propped up on the pantry shelf when you are cooking is a convenience and a safe guard against mistakes. For kitchen weights and measures are complicated and judgment, ait asset in cooking, has little to commend it as a substitute for accurate measuring- some famous old cooks to the contrary notwithstanding. two Liquid measures: One cupful equals half a pint, equal a pint and four a quart. One gill equals half a cupful, two equal a cupful and eight a quart. Thirty-two liquid ounces equal a quart, sixteen a pint, eight & cupful. But liquid ounces are not often used in recipes. Gills take their place. Sixteen ounces equal a pound, eight equal half a pound, four equal a quarter of a pound. A table for flour and ground coffee of equal weight: Four cupfuls equal a pound. Four ounces a cupful, one ounce equals a quarter of a cupful. Four tablespoonfuls equal an ounce, or a quarter of a cupful. Two ounces equal a gill. One gill is an- eighth of a quart, or half a cupful. A gill, being a measure, not & weight, is the same in all things. A table for granulated sugar, butter and milk: Two cupfuls equal a pound. Eight ounces equal a cupful, two equal a quarter of a cupful. Two tablespoonfuls equal an ounce. Four ounces e^ual a gill. Two and a half cupfuls of powdered sugar equal a pound.

October Fun. *FHE October woods and fields are full ^ of play materials for the children. Nuts, seeds and leaves may be utilized under mother's direction to make quaint and pretty playthings, amusing the chil dren for hours at the same time that they are learning finger skill. Give the little girl a saucer full of yellow and red kernels of corn, acorns and the flat, white squash and melon seeds, wonder working stuff for making jeweled neck laces which she may hang about her neck and be transformed into a child princess. The seeds will need to be soaked for an hour in warm water and dried be tween soft towels. A length of coarse white linen thread and a short, thick needle are necessary .for the stringing. The needle is thrust through the fleshy end of each kernel of corn and the point ed end of the squash and melon seeds. A hole bored through each acorn with an awl makes it possible to use the nuts for pendants to the chains. The yellow and red corn may be alter nated, or three red kernels may be strung between daisies made of the yellow ker nels after the fashion of the daisy bead chains Melon and squash seeds alter nated with the corn make a dainty neck lace, or they may be used for pendants. Paper Possibilities. have become accustomed to paper napkins and paper plates, and now we have paper towels. They are made in a roll, punctured at intervals, to be torn off as desired. Paper dishcloths are on the same plan. Fancy dresses can be made of paper with good effect, and flow, er and vegetable costumes are particular ly excellent in paper for fancy balls. Cur tains of white crepe paper last a long time. Lamp shades can be made of it, and paper rope work Is used for vases, jars, jardlneres, trays and baskets. Simple Way to Test Eggs. MAKE a brine by dissolving two ounces of salt in one pint of water, then lay in th eeggs. An egg laid the lame day will sink to tj?e bottom, an egg laid the previous day will not ain't quite :o the bottom; an egg three days old will float just under the surface; an older tgg floats on or above the surface. There fore the older the egg the higher It will ?f above the water. Voile Gown. touches of black satin. The bodice has a narrow vest of ecru lace, a narrow ruffle of flner lace turning back on to the overlapping blouse front and above the neck. On either side of the vest Is a flat, narrow band consisting of fine tucks placed horlsontally. A similar band marks the drop shoulder line of the blouse. The long sleeve is finished by a flat cuff of lace. The skirt consists of a triple machine-pleated flounce. Black satin pipes the neck and is used as girdle and sash ends. In the new skirts the fullness comes from below the hips and terminates at the knees.
