on the waist or sash that is draped ,
| in unusual mode.
I The silhouette, lipwever, shows no j
I daring innovations as yet. There are
I flounces of many kinds and many
; sizes, fantastically festooned around
the form or set in simple, straight
lined mode tier upon tier. Or, variety
may be given a gown by making the
individual flounces of different fab
rics, while you will find that fur is
used to edge a great majority of these
tunics. In many cases these irregu
larly cut flounces are exceedingly pic
tu esqiic, and because of their un
usual shape some gowns now take on
the appearance of a Corkscrew, which
gives its name to the newest skirt.
In the model depicted here there is
just a suggestion of this mode?as
the jxtreme effect is more eccentric
than beautiful. The foundation of
the skirt of this attractive afternoon
gown is made of black satin. . Two
softly gathered flounces are fashioned
from taupe-colored mousscilne de soie
trimmed with bands of fox. Beneath
this is set a deep band of gold bro
caded taupe satin. From this rich
fabric the corsage is developed, and
| you will note that it is exceedingly
simple in design. The long, graceful
'sleeves and the deeply cut V-shape in
the front are edged with the fur, while
a softly pleated girdle is folded around
| the waist line and arranged in a long
| draping panel that extends \o the in
j step.
Velvet is another fabric that is
much used for afternoon gowns, while
the tailored diess is often made of
fine or muslin wale serge. Some of
these have pleated tunics that reach
Imost to the knee, which in this skirt
often these smart dresses are made
v. i t h a natty jacket, or at least the
wii.it is arranged to simulate a coat.
Navy blue is the color that is favored
at the present, although certain shades
of da; k green, wine and brown are
.ilso worn. There is no doubt but that
the tailored dress for southern wear
will be ni.ide cf white serge.
The trimmings of these gowns are
? ften of very lavish embroidery. For
?: stance, one of the most inteiesting
' <>i',els in navy hlue was embroidered
?? hand with ;t loosely spun brass col
? ? c :-ilk. This was designed so that
.i the skirt u- a suggestion of a deep
?i.el was cleverly given. Touches of
he me color were also shown on
ihe corsage, which was distinguished
by its simple lines.
Fine supple taffeta silks are much
<a?o. ed, bt th foi afternoon and even
ng. The light colors are particularly
^.rood for evening wear, ami one of the
loveliest that I have seen recently was
made of a delicate rose pink. The
skirt was designed with a series of
: rather small flounces that were pret
?tily arranged, so that they were caught
on either side beneath a small cluster
of dainty pink roses. A tjlrdle of royal
purple encircled the waist, while the
upper part of the gown was made of
j transparent chiffon that cleverly veiled
the rich lace" from which the corsage
! was termed
Indeed, the possibilities of the pres
! en-da> fabrics are really wonderful,
and allow much freedom to the fash
ionable woman who today seeks to em
phasise her individuality rather than
follow an unbecoming fashion.

Into account the fact that most of us,
nowadays, would ?iot find palatable a
dinner which Included two or three kinds
of pis, crullers and cake, oyster stew,
chicken pie. roast turkey and half a

count the fact that certain dishes are so
proverbially associated with Thanksgiv

meal of its distinguishing character.

Baby language is the latest study. The
child first uses Its voice, says an expert,
to express hunger, temper and feelings of
pleasure. Noises alone suffice for such
expression. Then the baby utilizes its
voice as a plaything, and afterward as
a recognized mode of expression.
Trilling of lips takes place only at teeth
ing time. Gradually there is less variety
? of sounds, as the child learns definite
associations with definite sounds. ? Some
little people can hum tunes, perfectly,
yet are too young to pronounce the ac
companying words.
On the other hand, they are often Cred
ited with words they never say. "Mum"
is an instinctive si und, not an intention
al ca.ll. Doubtless fond mot ers will pro
test, but a wise professor laid it down
that the child of any national.ty when in
need cries "Mum." The mother comes.
After a time the infant associates "Mum '
with the arrival of mother and the cessa
tion of distress. Then It expresses the
word intelligently, but not before this
association has occurred.
Definite words, it was explained, are
comprehended between the twelfth and
fifteenth mcnths. Often one word forms
t e entire vocabulary for a long time.
Comprehension of words takes place
earlier than the power to speak.
There was a great difference between
boys and girls. The former were slower
than the latter.

can be spread with butter or molasses
and browned In the oven. The baked
onions are made by arranging boiled
onions In a buttered baking dish, and
covering them with a thin layer of cream
sauce and a sprinkling of grated cheese
and buttered bread crumbs, and then
browning them. To make the parsnip
i croquettes, boll the parsnips In salted
! water, drain and wash them. To eaoh
pint of pulp add a teaspoonful of flour
and Heason well with salt. Shape In
small croquettes, dip In beaten egg and
l fry brown.
Spanish oelery salad Is made in this
way: Chop four stalks of celery fine and
add a dash of chopped onion and a tea
j spoonful of chopped parsley. Mince two
hard boiled eggs and add them. Dress
with French dressing, flavored with Tar
ragon vinegar and serve on lettuce
leaves. With it serve balls of cren
cheest* rolled In powdered nuts and h<
sa t wafers, each dotted with a bit ot
butter and pepper and browned.
Put a rich pumpkin mixture In shells of
uncooked crust formed In patty-cake tins
and bake brown for the tarts. Pit dates
and fill the cavities where the pits were
with small pieces of candled ginger,
blanched almonds or chopped walnuts
and pecans. Roll each date In granulat
ed sugar. For the fruit macedolne mix a
gill of sherry, a pint of sirup, the Juice
of three lemons, half a teaspoonful of
vani.la and half a cupful each of shred
ded pineapple, chopped candled fruits,
hard grapes, preserved strawberries, cher
ries and peaches. Freea? and serve in
sherbet glasses.

Only those who have eaten planked
steak fully appreciate how appetizing It
is. Like planked shad, it has many epi
curians who praise its palatableness most
Long ago it was discovered that a steak
or shad could be planked In a hot oven
when open fires were not available. The
upper grating of the oven is used for this
Use a clean oak or hickory plank? about
two and one-half inches in thickness and
of such a length that it will go easily
into your oven. Grease it well with lard
and set It in a moderate oven, taking It
out occasionally to egrease it. gradually
increa^iny the temperature of the oven,
if possible, while you are giving the plank
this treatment. Always grease and heat
your plank before you put the article to
be planked upon it. Rub your shad or
steak on both sides with seasoning and
abundance of butter. Lay the fish or
meat on the hot plank and fasten it firm
ly Into place with wire nails at the four
corne s (do not drive these in too deeply,
however), and lay the plank on the upper
grating of the oven. Frequent basting Is
required eyery few minutes with butter
until the planked article is done.

Brocaded charmeuse and plain chiffon
In one of the old gold colors with louche
of heavy ecru lace make up this effective
afternoon costume that can so readily
be worn under a fur coat or three-quar
ter-length cloth wrap.
Many women when planning such a
costume wisely include a wrap to match,
and many handsome results are seen. At
a recent tea a woman beautifully gowned
in plum-colored charmeuse had a draped
coat of dull velour that matched exactly
the shade of the dress and with its broad
collar and cuffs of silver wolf fur might
appropriately serve the double purpose
of an evening wrap.
To return to the design of the sketch:
there is a kimono-sleeved blouse of o.d
gold chiffon made over white net. The
blouse has quite a low V neck, but is
filled in by the higher neck of the net
unde blouse. finished with a narrow roll
ing collar. A second col ar of white
chiffon is attached to the blouse proper.
Instead of a girdle- there is a very

Beware the Feather Duster.
The old-faKhloned feather ruster with
Its Ions handle Is no doubt a great con
venience to those housekeepers who are
unable to do much stret< hlng or stooping,
but It does not accomplish Its purpose.
It only scatters the dust from one article
to another because the feathers cannot
hold It. A substitute for the feather dust
er th&t will do work better Js a child's
broom, the head covered with a bit of
cotton flannel or an old stocking cut open
finished off with two ruffles made from
'the material doubled. With this aid tops
of windows and doors, also baseboards
and all places difficult to reach by the
hand, may be thoroughly dusted. Since
the fabric will hold the rust It Is perma
nently removed, not changed from one
place to another.
Spare the Rubbing.
Soak clothes overnight to loosen the
dirt, and wring out into hot soapy water
next morning.
Instead of putting the washboard Into
the tub and rubbing the clothes up and
down upon it. lay the board across the
tub, and, having soaped the piece to be
washed, scrub it with a nailbrush or a
washed, scrub It with a nail brush or a
small ordinary scrubbing brush. This
method Is quicker, eaves the hands and
the garments will last longer than when
rubbed upon the board.
Freezing Harmful.
If salt is added to the last rinsing
water the clothes will not freeze so
hard upon the line during very cold
weather, consequently will be less diffi
cult to remove.
Thin fabrics are so apt to crack when
Is cut from the brocaded dress material
and is in the form of a crushed g - die
with a pointed bib running up over the
blouse in front and back. At either side
of this point other triangular bibs of lace
are arranged with the points caught up
over the bust. A similar arrangement of
smaller sections of lace is introduced
Just below the waist line, giving the
effect of a small vest. . Dull blue chiffon
is used for the sash that ties below the
waist on the left side. This does not en
i circle the waist, but is started under the
lace tabs at either side. The tunic skirt
! Is rounded across the back we.l below the
| hips and runs up to a point in front con
siderably shorter. It is mounted at the
waist line with even gathers across the
front and back.
The lower skirt ia very long and at
tached to a hip-length foundatio nof
china silk. All the drapery is hung from
the front and falls in graceful folds that
curve away from the feet, leaving a six
or seven inch instep slash. It is advis
able to weight the hem with a facing of
canton flannel.
Oysters Creamed and Baked.
Heat a large spoonful of butter in a
clean frying pan, rub in a tablespoonful
of flour and stir to a white roux. Re
rtiove to the table. Season with salt and
white pepper. Have ready pate pans or
scallop shells arranged in a baking pan,
put three or four fine oysters in each,
cover with the white sauce and cook in
a quick oven about eight minutes, or un
til the oysters "ruffle." Serve in the
shells. The white sauce should be thick
as the liquor from the oysters will thin it.
Theater bonnets are made of gold, sil
ver or copper lace and trimmed with nar
row bands of fur and bead'fringe.
Some of the new long Eleeves have
small buckles at the wrist to hold the
fullness of the frill snugly im place about
the wrist.
Do not indulge too freely in br'.gh
combinations of vivid colors. They will
go hopelessly out of fashion i*ery quickly.

be stretched upon a llnu. Some I ou?e
keepers dip the corners of towels, sheets,
tablecloths and other household linens !n

whipped by a strong wind.
To Wash Furniture.
Polished furniture may be kept In good
condition with very little trouble If gone
over one? a week with a soft sponge
squeezed out of clear cold or luke war-n
(according to the amount of soil on the
furniture) water, afterward wiping with
a damp chamois. Never touch any kind
of varnished woods or polished surfaces
aitn a dry chamois, and always wipe
n one direction, not back und forth.
To Restore Crepe.
It coats from I2.S0 to to restore _? |
widow's veil, the price depending upon
the else of It, but the work can be done
it home for nothing at all, even by an un
skilled person. You lay a folded sheet
upon a table and pin down the veil to
it very carefully. The hems roust be
straight and all edges laid flat. Then you
take a clean white cloth wrung out of
liot water and lay over a portion of the
zrepe. This In place smoothly, hold a
very hot Iron over ?e wet cloth and
ibout two Inches away from It. It must
never for a moment touch the wet ran.

not take from the sheet until perfectly
3ry. The crepe will then be crisp ar.d, In
fact, exactly like new.
No matter how wrinkled It may have
been before !t will be perfectly smooth
now. Smaller pieces cf crepe may be ren
ovated in the same way.
Cleaning White Furs.
Plaster of parls, Fuller's earth, corn
starch. flour, cornmeal and powdered
magnesia and salt are admirable for
cleansing ermine and other white furs.
In all cases flrst beat out the dust. Rub
the material selected well into the fur.

light rattan whip or stick and gently
beat out t^e fur from the skin side
Should there be any lack of brilliancy
in the fur. comb it out with a fine steel
comb made for the purpose. If the. fur
should appear stiff, beat slightly with a
rattan whip.
The influence of the Russian blouse on
the new su ts Is very strong.
