the new dance frocks is a bustle.
This billowy protuberance is one
of the signs by which you may know
a brand new gown, for few of the
new models are made without a puff
or a fold jutting out from the back
waist line, just to remind us that
bustles are again in favor.
Notice the charm with which Mme.
Alia Ripley of the Fashion Art
League of America gains the bustle
effect in the dancing frock pictured
here. The gown is "built" of deli
cate blue tulle made over green tulle,
and these are but over-dresses for a
foundation of lavender-silver cloth
with a silver lace "drop" at the bot
tom. The close-fitting bodice is
made of richly embroidered crepe
silk, caught over the shoulders with
strands of iridescent beads.

Chop very fine a quart of cold
cooked potatoes; salt and pepper to
taste. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter
and add to 1 cup of warm cream,
turn over Ihe chopped potato. Butter
cups or ramikins and turn the pota
to mixture into them. Bake in brisk
oven 10 minutes. Draw the cups from
the oven and cover tops with a tea
spoon of grated cheese; return to hot
oven for 3 'minutes or until cheese
is slightly brown. Turn out on plat
ter or serve in same dishes. Serve
with cold meat or hot sausage.

While a fire was in progress in a
tenement house in Paris a poodle
dashed upstairs and in a few- min
utes returned with a doll in its
was large and passing fear, and she
always wore a smile and plenty dress
es; when you had ordered well done
beans she never brought them rare,
and she seldom mixed the butter with
her tresses. She won a corner in my
heart first time I ordered peas, for
she brought me peas that were above
suspicion, and she didn't try to sub
stitute some evil smelling cheese, nor
wait until I'd died of inanition. She
bore herself with dignity, and never
tried to flirt, but once upon a time a
gay young granger said, "Hasten
hither, Dimples! Say, I think you're
quite a skirt!" Said she, "What kind
of hash this evening, Stranger?" He
answered, "Why not meet me at a
quarter after nine, just beside the lit
tle booze shop over yonder? You're,
just the kind of chicken that's ex-"
actly in my line, and of you 'most
every minute I grow fonder!" At
that she spilled the gravy and the
coffee down his back, and while the
folks about her smiled approval she
laid a six-pound platter ori'his coco
with a whack. Then she quietly re
quested his removal. I heard her
murmur softly, "That's another one
knocked out I surely busted Willie
on the beanie! Well, maybe these
young boobs will learn to mind what
they're about, and to tell that after
dinner stuff to Sweeney!" Charles

And now the terrified standpatters
suspect that your "Uncle Hiram John

"Yes. Why not?" asks Ted Shawn,
husband and dancing partner of Ruth
St Denis, famous interpreter of Ori

maintained an- ecclesiastic ballet"
And so he has just appeared in the
