Scarf With Matching Yegtee
BY MARY MARSHALL. DRESSES this Spring are so simple, so lacking in exaggera tion, writes a Wrench corre spondent, that we can wear all sorts of interesting scarfs and jollars without making them too compli cated. In fact, many of the late Spring •nd Summer dresses really need this * Beck treatment to give them distinction All this by way of comment on the new scarf with matching vestee ar- j nangement shown in the sketch. The original from which the sketch was made was of Paris origin, but it is an idea that you can easily carry out at home. The original neckline needs to be cut down quite low with sides turned beck to make revers. Two straight pieces of material of contrasting fcolof are then arranged to form a crossing vestee beneath this deep opening and a strip of the same contrasting material i ia draped around the neck and tied in a knot with flaring ends low at the front. All this might be done from a yard of silk, satin or rather substantial silk ; crepe. You will need somewhat more than a yard for the long scarf, but j this may be pieced at the back. It should be about nine inches wide. From , the silk that remains after the scarf ] has been cut you will have enough left to make the two vestee pieces. The dress shown here was of beige silk crepe with small green polka dots with a scarf and vestee of green. For a Summer dress you might choose white with red dots with scarf and vestee of blue. My Neighbor Says: Try adding a little lemon juice to your pineapple and prune pies. It greatly improves the flavor. Never throw away bones left from a roast or shoulder. Put them on in cold water, and if cooked several hours a very good soup may be obtained with the addition of diced vegetables. Good croquettes are insured by making them long enough ahead for them to set before frying. Make them early in the morning if wanted for the evening meal, or the afternoon before if you wrant them for luncheon.

I sus iect that the condition of your skin is lue to the lack of thoroughness in washing off the soap. It is hard to inf? well in cold water, so use warm Hater. The soap will lather better and Hill be easier to remove. Particles of ^oap left on the skin will make It dry and blotchy. After rinsing with warm I water, bathe your face in cold water and blot It dry very carefully. Careless ness In drying the skin tends to make It dry and rough. The pimples may be due to ycrur diet Eat more fresh fruits, salads and green vegetables. Take meat and potatoes Dnly once a day. Drink plenty of water between meals. Be outdoors in the fresh air at least two hours a day. Mild sunburn is good for pimples. LOIS LEEDS. | • Broiled Lamb Slices.

Furnishes “Bulk” and Vitamin B to Overcoma Common Constipation Liver is known as a good source of iron for the blood. Now, new tests show Kellogg's ALL-BRAN con tains twice as much blood-building iron as an equal amount by weight of beef liver. But more important still, labora tory experiments show ALL-BRAN j provides "bulk" to exercise the in-1 I testines, and Vitamin B to tone the intestinal tract. This means Kellogg's ALL-BRAN is a fine way to overcome constipa tion—with the headaches, loss of appetite and energy that so fre- ) quently result. The “bulk" in ALL-BRAN is much : like that of lettuce. Inside the body, it absorbs moisture, forming a soit I | mass, which gently clears the in testines of wastes Special cooking | processes make ALL-BRAN finer, milder, more palatable. How much better than risking pills and drugs—so often habit forming. Just eat two tablespoon fuls of ALL-BRAN daily for most types of constitpation. It is not habit-forming.

PYATTlt. _ Some people call It, Incorrectly, “old man's beard.” But the real name Is fringe bush, and I defy anybody to find a lovelier flowering tree, unless it is the dogwood. With its very long, aristocratic, drooping petals, which come in the odd number of four; its handsome blue fruits, its dark, tropical-looking leaves, it is the gem of its family, if we count only the native species of the olive family. Of course, this is also lilac time and (if you care anything for privet flow ers i, there is privet, also of the olive family. Every land believes it has some spe cial claim upor, the lilac. The English think them ultra-English; the French almost claim to have invented the lilac, and with some justice, since they have done marvelous breeding work in the house of Vilmorin. near Paris. Ger mans are lilac fanciers; yet no Middle Western farm would be itself without the lilars. Even in the city, lilacs are beautiful. They withstand the poison ous fumes of city chimneys, the relent less attacks of the neighbors' children, and many insect and fungus pests. Anri still, in spite of the endless repetition of them in everybody's garden, we are never tired of them. Plants that can so work themselves into the aflectiohs are deserving of all the praise they get. If we have no native lilacs, however, there remains always the fringe bush— so beautiful when covered over with a mass of blossoms that, to come on It in the woods is to see something that even seeing scarcely seems to justify believing. I venture to call it even more beautiful than lilacs, though not so sweet of smell, and. cf course, it. too. is often cultivated. Even In the wild. It looks like some superb garden bush escaped the garden close To find it growing wild around the District, you will have to have sharp eyes, long legs, much patience. Occa sionally it t’kcs up an obliging posi tion in *-*re rocky escarpment, but in general it prefers the sluggish crcNra. the wet. swampy wood* of the Potomac low' country—the very part of the Dis trict and vicinity least often penetrated, and hence richest in surprises for bird and flower lover. - —— ■ *■— • New automobile road sweeper* In Paris are built on the principle of th# 'av.'n mo:, er MORE POWER TO YOU SHREDDED 12 BIG BISCUITS A "Uneada Bakarf product / $150 in ' Gold Prizes To be awarded to the school children of Wash ington and suburbs for the best essays on— “Georg* Wathington • the Miller" Here ere the conditions: The essay must not be longer thsn 500 words.

Vernon According to Washington’* Diary he experi mented in testing seed grain. It is recorded under date of November 30, 1785, when he was "On the Wheat which was . . . from the Cape of Good Hope ... I determined to try an experiment, and accordingly on throo Rows ... I cut it within 4 inches of th* ground." He writes again April 10, 1786, that he "Began also to sow the Siberian Wheat ... in the ground laid apart for these experiments." And another time he “Began to Sow . . . wheat steep'd in Brine and ailum.” This was to check the rust. He also experimented with methods to check the “bugs" and the Hessian fly. Fertilization had his attention early. He mixed his “composts” April 14, 1760, in a box with ten apartments, in which he put soil, sand, marie, mould, clay and manure of various kinds, in recorded mixture, and planted in each division three grains of wheat and as many of oats and barley, “all at equal distances in Rows, and of equal depth (done by a machine made for the purpose)." Two weeks later he records the result. He had great faith in river mud as a fertilizer, but nature not being kind enough to dis tribute it as in the case of the Nile, he found an unsurmeunt able difficulty in getting it from the bed of the river te the lead.
