Well Polished Nails.
A great many people ask me for a
formula for a nail-polishing powder.
I always write back that I haven't
j any because it is so much easier to
l purchase a polishing powder than it
|is to make one. Most polishing
| powders contain oxide of tin which is
' perfectly hafmless, but sometimes
j hard to""oT>tain at drug stores. It is
! supposed to have the quality of mak
I ing the nails soft and of giving them
a smooth gloss which is desirable.
But no powder .should ever be used
more than twice a week, and any
powder should be washed off after
the nails are polished.
There are any number of polishing
powders, tinted and untinted, in cake,
powder or paste form. My only ad
vice would be for you to choose some
nationally known variety, rather than
something new and unheard of.
There is a great fad this season for
tinting the nails. It is, of course,
highly artificial, but it's rather pretty
if not overdone. You can purchase
any number of tints for the nails.
Usually the rouge comes in the form j
of paste and. after being polished in, j
j it is washed off and another polish j
given with ordinary white polishing
powder. The only thing to avoid is |
using too much or using the rouge j
too often. You do not want scarlet
nails oil a white hand, li you have
a good healthy circulation the fric- j
tion of the nail buffer will make the i
nails sufficiently pink.
If you polish the nails daily with I
a buffer you will probably find that
you need not use any powder at all. j
The glossy nail always looks well. ,
You must simply avoid a hard mir
rorlike glitter, which is always in
bad taste.
Blond?The sort of curlers you have 1
been using are very bad because they
will make the hair break and split. If
you will dampen the hair slightly
and roll strands of it around soft kid
curlers you will have a soft, natural
looking wave. But it will take longer
to do this way. In fact, your hair is
evidently not in good condition at the
moment; you had better not try to
wave it at all for a while. Do not
wear rats or puffs with your hair if
you want it to be healthy. Kven the
best of these are heating to the scalp.
Sardine Canapes.
Spread some circular pieces of
toasted bread with sardines rubbed to
a paste with a small quantity of
creamed butter seasoned with table
sauce and cayenne pepper. Place a
stuffed olive in the center of each
canape and arrange a border of finely
chopped egg whites around the edge.

To Prepare Salted Almonds.
Cover one quart of fine almonds
with boiling water.- Place them on
tlie stove, and stir tliem two or three
times from the bottom so that they
will be blanched evenly. When the
skins drop off easily drain off the
#ater and cover them with cold wa
ter, letting- them stand for about two'
minutes. Drain, rub off tho skins
and spread them on cloths In a warm
place to dry, BUrring occasionally.
Let them remain until they are brit
tle. Put a tablespoon of olive oil in
a shallow pan, heat it, put the al
monds In and stir until all are slight
ly oiled, then put them In a moderate
oven until a delicate brown, stirring
often. Ilemove from the oven and
while hot sprinkle them with the
finest powdered salt When buying:
peanuts to salt, remember to pur
chase the unroasted nuts.

FUR COATS?$285
40 Inches Long and of Perfect Quality
Scotch Mole?Hudson Seal?Caracul
Never have we been able to offer furs that could begin to compare
with these in value for as low as $285. This price is less than ordi
nary cost and is only possible because we secured these coats through
a very unusual condition.
Every coat is of perfect and handsome quality. The models in
Scotch Mole or Caracul have deep shawl collars and cuffs of Skunk;
the Hudson Seal Coats may be had with deep shawl collars and cuffs,
of Skunk, Squirrel or Beaver.
It is unnecessary to emphasize an event of this kind to any ouc
who knows and appreciates both beauty and genuine worth in Furs.
We stand back of every coat as a rare and wonderful purchase.
