Russian Influence in Fashions.
The wise should look to Moscow, or
what was Moscow, for the new in
spiration In clothes.
Paris is under the thrall of the
grand duchesses and princesses who
are begging for aid for their ouvroirs
where are supported the very poor
exiles who esoaped persecution from
Lientn. The subject is almost a mania
in Paris. It began last summer when
thp Americans were begging aid for
the devastated areas in France, and
the French were begging for the
refugees from Russia who had taken
up their habitation In Paris. If the
affair hadn't been so serious it would
have been comic.
This mid-season the great Russian
ball in Paris in aid of the exiles
brought together all society and
those who are curious of the doings
of society and the result was not
alone a goodly sum of money for
thousands who are really in a piti
able state of destitution, much worse
than the Belgians during the war.,
for they have nol an inch of land to
cull their own and no way of getting
places to work, but the ball resulted
in a mad attempt to convert all new
clothes Into Russian fashions. We
shall see much of the result from this
day on.
Already the dressmakers of Taris
are wearing the gorgeous blouses de
signed by ?he Grand Duchess Marie
I'avlovna and the Princess Ousouroff
and by seventeen other titled emi
gres who are giving their emotional
temperaments ull sway in devising
ways and means for their country
people to find a heart and a plate of
food. What with Paris under the
thrall of Russian sentiment and
Washington giving Itself up to an
other great social appeal for aid.
there Is no doubt of the influence
that such sentiment will give a tre
mendous inspiration toward the splen
did and colorful fashions to which
old Russia gave birth.
At the moment in Pkris the blouse
and the headdress of Russia -are in
the ascendancy. The former is avail
able for the majority, the latter will
tickle the fancy of those who aim to
dress brilliantly at night.
The overblouse worn by the great
Russians to create a demand for It
among fashion followers has some
what the crudity of our Indian
blouses which were advanced two
years ago. There is the same pat
terning of brilliantly colored coTTon
threads on a cream or white back
ground. The blouse la worn over the
skirt without a belt, the sleeves are
as long or short as one wishes. The
neckline Is slightly round In front and
rather high at back.
The French dressmakers who are
making a feature of such blouses
have departed from the original cot
ton foundation and substituted red
crepe de chine, also yellow and black.
These foundations, holding as they
do the bands of cross stitch and lat
tice work done In rainbow colors, give
one a sense that no mere black frock
can hope to rival such splendor. The
dressmakers are taking up the Rus
sian Idea with all the more vehemence
because it promises a break with
black by the public.
Making the Home Attractive
Modern Decorators Have Rehabili
tated the Old-Time Grill.
Do you remember the grills placed
between doorways In our grand
mothers' homes? Well, they have
come back Into fashion. Mercy, no!
not the twisted tortured affairs of
those earlier days, but modern pieces
of bright-colored wood. In other
words, they are the old-timers all
dressed up as twentieth century
And truly charming are. these re
habilitated old favoritles. So disguised
are they in their brilliant new dresses
that they are not recognizable as old
friends. That is well, for indus
triously has the present generation
gone about eliminating the poor old
twisted grills, which tried so hard to
look attractive in an earlier period of
And horrible affairs they were. Wise
have we been in learning not to love
That there are advantages in door
grills was realized by modern dec
orators. They eliminate the necessity
of buying so mucft drapery material
and they do allow more light to be
dispensed between rooms. So recalling
to mind the old styles some brilliant
mind decided to modernise it and
adapt It to present needs.
The result has been that conven
tional flowers, birds of wondrous
plumage and flat designs all bril
liantly colored have taken the place
of the scrolls of yore.
Making Tour Own Cotton Bed
Several bride readers have written
to ask me for direction* for making
a cotton bed comfort. Tbe first step
is to secure a quilting frame. Have
a carpenter make you two lengths of
board (Oat clothes poles will do)
eight feet long, and two more lengths
of board which are each six and
one-half feet long. These boards
should be from two to three Inches
wide and flat.
The next step is to tack a strip of
bed ticking on each of these four
boards, the entire length, letting one
edge of the strip hang out one inch
beyond the edge of the board so that
the comfort may be sewed onto this
ticking to hold it taut when you are
ready to tuft it.
Silkateen is. of course, the nicest
material to use for the covering, but
the better grades are about 40 cents a
yard, so cotton challis is used by
many housekeepers, as this costs
around 25 cents a yard. The comfort
will be two and one-half yards long
pnd two yards wide, so this will re
quire ten yards of material for the
covering; two flve-yard lengths of the
yard-wide material will be sewed to
gether, then doubled over on Itself
lengthwise, with the cotton batting
between the two thicknesses.
A bat of cotton two and one-half
yards long and two yards wide will
probably cost you around $1.50?but
prices differ In varoius vicinities.
When you have sewed the two five
yard lengths of material together
lengthwise, lay It on the floor, spread
the bat of cotton on one-half of It.
fold the other half (lengthwise) over
the cotton and baste the material
together on the three open aides of
the quilt, over this cotton filling.
Some stores sell cotton In small
rolls, but It is best to buy It In tbe
regular quilt-slie bat whloh has not
a break In It, for otherwise the cotton
filling of a quilt is apt to separate.
Now that yon have bastsd your
covering material over the cotton,
the quilt is ready to put on the
frame. Baste the four sides of the
quilt onto the strips of ticking which
you previously tacked onto the four
pieoes of wood, using the two longest
boards for the two long sides of the
quilt, of coarse. Put four Iron damps
(any hardware store will sell yon
these) on the four corners to bold the
four corners of the frame together?
two ends of wood overlapping at?"??
corner?and rest the entire frame on
chairbacks. If you can't get the
clamps, tie the wooden ends together
with string.
Begin quilting. In grandmother a
day worsted was used to quilt with.
But housekeepers of today have found
that sllkateen Is firmer and washes
better. You will need two balls of
allkateen for one quilt. Tuft It close,
as a close-tufted quilt holds Its shape.
Three Inches between tufts Is not too
close. To get the tufts even stick
black-headed pins at Intervals along
the top of the quilt, then pull out a
pin every time you put In a tuft.
The tufting process is very simple.
Thread a large-eyed needle with dou
ble sllkateen, and push the needle
down through the comfort, pulling It
out on the other side; then push It
up from beneath, close to where it
went down, and tie twice on the up
i per side, leaving one-half-inch ends
of tied thread.
When you have tufted the entire
quilt, rip It off the frame and run
the edges together with allkateen, to
finish them off.

Re-Education, of Muscles in
There is a legend that Annette Kel
Ierman was a cripple In childhood and
overcame her disability by persevering
exercise in the water. Many subjects
of muscle paresis (partial or Incom
plete paralysis) have found that they
can command and control the muscles
better in water.
Remember that any muscular action
in arm, leg or trunk involves trans
mission of an impulse through the gov
erning nerve and the portion of the
spinal cord that has been damaged in
infantile paralysis. Mental abstraction
or concentration may have considerable
influence upon the efficiency of this
nerve muscle mechanism. Everybody
knows how distraction of attention will
at once slow down a person's walk, for
example. Although the general rule
that a layman shouldn't try to become
too familiar with his in'ards holds
good as for the loose Insides, it is a
fact that some intimacy with the
anatomy of one's frame has a rather
wholesome influence. Thus one who
knows precisely what the diaphragm is
and does can work that muscle more
effectively than even a better de
veloped individual who Is ignorant of
anatomy. Singing teachers and sing
ers understand that. There is, then, a
kind of self-consciousness which is
good for our health. If introspection
and morbid imaginings from too much
Almanac works havoc with the health
of the credulous, that is because these
misguided folk just poke about and
dabble with their in'ards. There is no
such influence felt by doctors, who
boldly take the in'ards out and study
them. Nor are nurses injured in
liealth and happiness by the knowledge
of the interior they acquire in their
training ? provided they are well
It has been found that victims of the
characteristic paresis of locomotor
ataxia are able to accomplish more in
In the way of re-education of the
muscles If they follow out their dally
exercises while blindfolded. This
merely removes a source of distrac
tion of the attention from the exer
cises. It was by blindfolding patients
that Dr. W. J. M. A. Maloney of New
York was able to bring about much
happier results In the treatment of
tabetics (locomotor ataxia cases) with
the Frenkel muscle re-educative exer
cises than had been possible before.
There Is no doubt that the faithful
and persevering concentration of the
patient's mind and attention, free from
distractions, upon the effort to make
the movement which Is seemingly Im
possible or extremely feeble. Is a dis
tinct aid In overcoming paresis or
paralysis from poliomyelitis as well
as other diseases. The mere mentul
effort. If sincerely and regularly made
by the patient under circumstances free
from distraction, allowing the Imagina
tion to picture the limb obeying the
will and going through the movements
of the exercise at a regular, rhythmic
rate. Involves a most favorable stimu
lus to regeneration and restoration of
the nerve muscle function.
The Alloy Stains.
I am a girl aged sixteen and I
wear glasses. Where the nosepiece
rests across the bridge of my nose
the skin becomes very much discol
ored, although it is good gold. What
is the cause? The optician said I
have uric acid In my system, but I
have always been strong and well
and am now healthy aside from my
poor eyesight. (W. T. A.)
Answer?The optician has been
reading the wrong almanac. This
staining or discoloring of the skin
by jewelry has no relation whatever
with uric acid or any other acid. The
discoloration is due to a chemical
reaction of the base metal, silver or
copper, of the alloy with sulphur In
tho sweat or sebum of the skin. Sul
phur compounds are normally pres
ent in the excretions of the skin.
So everything is all right?you are
just a little more alive than some
others who do not notice stains from
jewelry. Use a drop of aromatic
spirits of ammonia on handkerchief
or cloth to remove the stain from
the skin.
Kindly define the terms "high blood
pressure" and "low blood pressure."
A friend asserts that a person who is
"full blooded" and florid in com
plexion has high blood pressure. Is
that true? (V. J. E.)
Answer?No. Most individuals who
have high blood pressure are rather
pallid, and many who are popularly
considered full blooded and who have
a florid complexion have low blood
pressure and perhaps even insuffi
cient blood or weak blood (anemia).
Appearances are misleading. Blood
pressure is the tension of the blood
in the arteries, maintained normally
by the pumping of the blood by the
heart and by the muscular and elas
tic pressure upon the blood by the
arteries themselves and by the body
muscles around the arteries. Blood
pressure may be compared with the
water pressure in the service pipes
of a municipal water system, save
that these pipes are inelastic. When
the blood pressure increases to an
abnormal degree from any cause the
individual has "high bloo*i pressure,"
which may not be, and usually is not,
of much importance?that Is, in
itself. It is silly to imagine that
"high blood pressure" is the name of
any disease condition, or that any
remedy or treatment purporting to
reduce high blood pressure will cure
the patient. It would be as sensible

Borden Quality?at the very same price
as Ordinary Brands
BORDEN'S Evaporated
Milk is just pure
country milk produced
under the most rigid
inspection and supervi'
sion. It is treated only
by heat at low tempera
ture which merely re
moves the excess water
by evaporation and sterilizes the rich
creamy milk that is left.
Typical Borden Precautions
For example, the herds from which the
milk comes are specially inspected?exam
ined regularly by skilled veterinaries and
kept thoroughly clean. In order that you
may have milk that is of
high average quality, the
milk from different breeds
is mixed so as to give the
best all-around food value.
The condensaries, where
the milk is put up in sealed
containers, are painstak
ingly inspected and an
extra-final test is made in
our laboratories of each
batch of Borden's Evap
orated Milk before it is
shipped to your grocer.
Borden's Evaporated
Milk always measures up
to these special stand
ards. You know it reaches
your pantry in the same
state of perfection.
How your grocer serves you
The production costs of Borden's Evaporated Milk
are necessarily high in view of the extra precau
tions taken in its manufacture. But American
housewives quickly learn which brand to ask for.
And nobody can afford to take chances on milk?
the most essential human food.
Your grocer knows this and while at times he pays
more for Borden's than for
many other brands, he is seek
ing always to supply his cus
tomers with Evaporated Milk
of established superiority. He
sells Borden's to youat no higher
price. You get Borden quality at
the very tame price you would
pay for ordinary brands.
