HEW HAVEN MORNING JOUBNAL AND COURIER. SATTTTIDAY JULY 157 1907
10 Women 1 11 Matters 1 Of loferest ; ! 1 1 VEILIK AND THEIR HEARING Every Lift Over Hat Brim That Has Especial Fascination. Long scarf veils are the most be coming worn over white and colored lace nets. Every lift of the veil over the hat brim has an especial fascina tion, . giving a new pose to the wear er's advantage, the tendency of drap ery on hats and gowns by means of carfs, bespeaks by means of the scarfs, no end of gracefulness that may be seized upon. Leading fashions all tend to that drooping, hanging grace of line, from the evening wrap, to hat and gown, while some of the simple morning gowns adopt a little of this style as well. The afternoon costumes are still more given up to that order. There ere figures that of necessity have to avoid all tills fashlonableness and keep to more trig and direct lines. They do well to study this personal quality, and make fashions bend to . their, individual style. Such, women always look well dressed and becom ingly so. ' FnNhlon Hints. Taking, a ,, strip of selvage for that pretty little plaiting now so much used on the ever ready blouse Is a rather old one, but pood to follow. The cost of having, it plaited Is only two cents a yard, so for a few cents a smart waist can be copied. Autumn Hats. These hatB are now to be thought of and as it happens ;hat the darker colored flowers are being rejected by the buyers of summer finery they can be bought for much under the original price, are unharmed and unfaded by handling. The early hats for wear in autumn too are far prettier trimmed with flowers and foliage than with feathers or stiff wings, as the long winter -season affords plenty of time for the latter decoration. Cnff IiinkM. Par better to get cuff links of Mother-of-pearl for the summer shirt waists than to wear those of gold plate or even sterling silver, the pearl links be ing less expensive, and above criticism as to good taste. One dollar buys a very smart pair and others that are plainer are less expensive still. Simple Rules-Summer Comfort First of all wear loose comfortable clothing. Collars and shoes particu larly should be very easy and com fortable in summer. Talcum powder ( dusted on the feet in the morning be fore dressing will help to keep the feet from becoming heated. Don't wear a hat if you are in an office all day for the scalp and brain become overheat ed and the whole body suffers.

Braid it smoothly at night to keep it out of the way and to prevent its be coming tangled. Open the windows both tob and bot tom to give a better current of air all night. , For peach pudding soak a pint of stale breadcrumbs in a pint of hot milk. Use either fresh or canned peaches, and stew enough of them to fill a pint meas ure when mashed and stir in a table spoonful of butter. Whei all are cold add two well beaten eggs, half a cup full of sugar and a pinch of salt; put in a buttered pudding dish, bake half an hour, and serve hot, either with or without sauce. A delicious peach shortcake is made by taking two cupfuls of flour, sifted, four teaspoonfuls of baking powder, half a teaspoonful of salt, and two tea- spoonfuls of sugar. Mix well together and work in quarter of a cupful of but ter. Mix it with three-quarters of a cupful of milk and roll It out half an Inch thick;, cut it into squares and bake fifteen minutes. Have your peach es peeled and cut in quarters. Sugar very freely and place between the lay-1 crs of crust. Cut up some small slices for the top and cover with whipped cream, 4 Indoor Games. A few interesting games, suitable to be playea at an Indoor summer gath ering for a small' company of young people about to separate for the sum mer, are here described: Play tele grams which, consist or having regular telegram blanks given to each person with, a list ,of letters. ' Each person must write a sensible telegram of ten words, each word beginning with one of the ten letters given out. The per son who sends the best "wire" gets a prize. It' might be tried three times, giving a prize for the best two out of three. You might also have little mottoes which you can buy, or paint on fancy paper suggestive of the sep aration of your group of Iriends for the summer. These could be used as place cards for your supper. You might also add the game of "Punch ing the Bag." Get a large grocer's bag, fill it with cheap souvenirs for each guest, hang it high in the door way and give each gurst a stuk with which to brer.k it open. The one who succeeds is a winner. The sjuv enirs fall to the ground and are pick ed up by the guests according to names written 011 them. COMFORT. an Interested in this line of amusement shculd fail to take advantage of. For two weeks Miss Wright of New York will be here to give lessons in all the newest stitches and also to shotv you some new ideas in the lines of work which, whilo they are not now, will never grow old. The method Miss Wright teaches Is simple arid can easi ly be learned by anybody. There were some children in her class yesterday morning, when she opened her lesson. Arncng the popular things are a Walla chaln, French embroidery, eyelet, shad ow and mountmelllek embroidery and special attention will be given to those desiring instruction in shading on Ken sington work.

If you do embroidery go in and look over the new designs and you , will find things in the Mendel & Freedman de partment of art embroidery that you wont find elsewhere. The department is on the third floor. Tomato Sandwiches. Tomato Sandwiches These are very simple, and consist of firm, cold, thinly sliced, well salted , tomatoes, laid be tween slices of lightly buttered bread. I know of no sandwich more dainty or delicious. Do not be' misled Into thinking that mayonnaise will improve them. In this class of sandwiches be long the cucumber, either thinly sliced and dipped Into French dressing or chopped and mixed with mayonnaise. I prefer the latter myself, but both ara good. Fried Peppers With Rice. Fried Peppers with Rice Boll rice so that every grain will stand alone yet bet tender through, and turn it into a hot vegetable dish. Prepare the green peppers by extracting the seeds, then slicing them in rings. Fry them in butter until browned lightly. Arrange them over the top of the rice and over all the butter in which they were cooked. I Set in the oven three minutes, covered, and then serve. Prince Rinji Salad. Prince Rinji Salad Select a nice head of lettuce; wash it and shave it into thin strips and heap in the center of salad bowl. Cut two large tomatoes into six thick slices and arrange in a ring around the lettuce. Sprinkle each slice of tomato with a tablespoonful of watercress, chopped fine. Cut up three small stalks of celery, shave very fine and cover the whole with the fol lowing dressing: Mash the yolk of one hard boiled egg into a paste, add one te.spoonful chutney sauce, a pinch of salt and pepper and one des sert spoonful of table oil; add grad ually one tablespoonful of vinegar and a te.ispoonful of fresh cream.

Avoid in Hot Weather. IN TROPICAL CLIMATE Great Care in the Prepara tion of Palatable and Also Healthy Dishes. As the temperature rises the appetite declines and the, average individual wonders how he ever mai.aged to sit through an eight -course dinner. Most of us feel that we could content our solves on -a diet-of fruit and liquids; but such a. die: . Uwlts. sustaining qualities. "Why not, thsn a l ip'- tue diet of the tropics to the summer ninths nero: Is the suggestion .of a num. who has spent many yeais- nov: the equator, says the New Vorfc Sun, "A fruit and v; viable menu is all very well for men and wvmen who are not called uoor. to spend several hours in the ri'onrianoe cf some dully occupation," he wm: on, "but working folks need some kind of animal food. At least one meal a day should con sist of fish, meat or poultry. In the tropics these three articles form an important part of the dally menu, but they are prepared in a different way from the ones in vogue here and they are accompanied by vegetables and fruit, which help to allay the heating properties attributed to a meat diet. "Sliced cold meats daintily served with a crisp green salad will tempt the appetite of almost any one whoso idea of a real meal is beefsteak or a steaming roust. Then well , cooked meats such as lamb, beef or possibly veal, combined with snowy flakes ,of rice and eaten with a curry , sauce provide plenty of fuel for the human furnace and keep the blood from be coming sluggish. Most people who have not liked curry before they lived in the tropics have grown very fond of it on account of the delicious fruit chutney served with It. Mango chut ney is especially good. "There Is a well known West. In dian dish called squab pie without so much as the wing of a squab in it. It is appetizing all the same. It is made of layers of pork sliced thin, chopped apples or cho chos, and onions, all boiled with cloves and with lime juice poured over it. , The dish the pie is baked in is lined with a rich , and (laky pie crust and another crust is put over the top after the "squab'' has been smothered In a highly flavored gravy. . Onions, despised though they be, are an unrivelled summer tonic. "Curried fish is one of the mainstays of the tropical meal and salt fish and rice done as we have it done there will tempt an appetite when more elegant viands fail to inspire a glimmer of in terest. Odd as it may seem, s nip forms a substantial part of the all the year diet with us and the hotter it is in the way ef seasoning the better we like it. Popper pot lives up to the temperature of its name, yet in spite of that it is not heating and after drinking a plate A LITTLE BARE COMFORT. e-5 v I ; ill Mt St ' w (.Mi ' jf-V 1: , CASPER. BECKWJTH. Son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Beckwlth, of Richard Streot, West Haven. of it one actually feels cooler and braced up. I suppose it's on the same principle that hot tea tends to cool one off more than Iced tea does In the end. "To make pepper pot an earthen bowl 'is used and into this are put as many. quarts of cold water as required with three tablespoons of pure casse ripo to each quart. Then salt and a handful of bird peppers, or, if these are not to be had, cayenne. Cooked meat of any kind cut into dice and two or three hard boiled eggs cut In the same way are added and the whole is allowed to simmer for several hours. This palatable and nutritious dish is always kept on hand In the well reg ulated West Indian household and the original stock is added to from day to day. m PLACE OF MEAT. "To take the place of meats there is nothing more satisfactory than rice and peas. Both are boiled separately, the rice ever so little, and then the two are put together and cooked with a bit of pork, butter and pepper. An entire dinner may be made of curried chicken if it is served after the West and East Indian mode. A little grated fresh cocoanut, a bit of thinly sliced smoked salmon, gherkins, chutney an pickled beet root give a distinct flavor and relish to it and take the place of vegetables and salad. "The banana is a most satisfying fruit and tht otiantities now being shipped into this country show that it is rapidly becoming a very important article of diet. In the morning when you feel a bit seedy and nothing tempts your appetite, try a dish of thinly sliced bananas yltn lime juice squeezed over them and you will find that you soon begin to take an interest in' things about you. "As a vegetable bananas roasted In their skins for about half an hour, or until the outside looks black are pro nounced delicious. When they are '-Hiked they are split open, dusted with powdered sugar and, then , lime Juice squeezed over them. To make a very good imitation of strawberries and cream bananas mashed to a pulp and mixed with strawberry jam and cream then served in a tall thin parfatt glass will almost persuade you that the sea son of fresh strawberries has returned. "Cocoa nuts furnish another good mnnt nnd vegetable understudy. Now there Is 'RiceyCoco' for Instance. This is a, nnnulnr dish in wnrm climates and is so simple to prepare that If it were widelv known there fsn t a doutit that, it would be promoted to a regu lar position on the dally menu, at least in summer. Rice is first boiled until it is soft, yet with every kernel separate Chinese style then to It Is added some cocoanut cream previously pre pared, a little nutmeg, some cinnamon, rose water and sugar. The whole Is so good it makes my mouth water just to think of it. "What strikes me as strange is that so few people here have ever tasted co coanut croam, and so far I haven't found a single restaurant where they make it, and yet you get fresh cocoa nuts here in season. With guava jelly and almost any of the fresh fruits sliced, or even preserved fruits, It gives a deliclousness and richness unequalled to my thinking. To make it, take the white meaty part of a fresh cocoanut the fresher the better, grate it and pour boiling water over it. making the proportion a quart to a medium sized cocoanut. When this has cooled strain the cream through a cloth and you will find the cream rich and smooth and having a delicate cocoanut flavor. With savories.

Lemons a Valuable Remedy. - There Is no household remedy more valuable than lemons. The juice tak en internaliy in water before break fast will ward off bllliousness and make a clear skin, and it can be used externally In a number of ways. One of the best complexion emollients Is made with lemon juice as a basis. It is an old arid tried preparation and is so simple that it should be on every toilet table. It' Is: Fresh lemon juice, one ounce; oil of roses, three drops; distilled water one pint; mix and cook tightly. It can be used on the face at leafet twice a day. Put on with a soft linen cloth ahd wipe gently after al lowing It to remain a few' minutes. soda. The limes are squeezed into ft glass with crushed ice, a bit of su gar is added and then the soda. "Sangaree is attractive to the palate and is quite simple to make, though It inquires a greater number of ingred ients than a Planter's Punch. Plain water poured Into a highball glass, a medium sized spoonful of sugar, grat ed nutmeg and a long strip of lime peel form the foundation of this re freshing liquid, and after all this is well stirred a wineglass and a half of sherry Is poured in and followed by plenty of crushed ice." Garter Drawers. Garter drawers, made so short that the suspender garters attached to the corset may be worn over the drawers and attached to the hose tops when the corset is worn outside the drawers are much liked. Wearing the drawers be neath the corset does away with the slight superfluous fullness outside the corset at the waist and hips, and inci dentally the garters are more comfort able outside the drawers than when worn next to the skin. Shirt ruffles which are offered in very fine and dainty forms as well as in ccarso lawn and lace are the best bust padding for hot weather.and shield covers of lingerie stuff and lace are now made for use in this summer frock. Worth Knowing. To mend an umbrella from which the handle has become detached from the steel rod fill the hole in the handle with powdered rosin, heat the end of the rod almost red hot and put it back in the handle. A large straw scrubbing brush nail ed out on the back porch or passage way is a very good shoe cleaner, espe cially where there are little children running In and out. It can be cleaned by running a stick through it. WEDDING CAKE; HOW TO MAKE IT Recipe That Will Be a Pleas ure to Prospective Brides.

An oatmeal jar should be kept on the. toilet table, and every time the hands are washed a little, of the contents thrown into the water to soften it. Bet ter still is the small cheese bag, which any one can make and which holds oat-. meal and orris powder in equal propor tions. A' bag like this can be used several times and it softens the skin and whitens it. ''',' ' Ufcss for Benzoin. ' Benzoin is a favorite ingredient in most . skin lotions. It Is an excellent addition to the bath, -a few drops of it making the water creamy In appear ance and giving the body a refreshed feeling. It should not be used too often or It Is apt to make the skin too dry. FEW THINGS TO TEIIPT ONE Some Recipes That May Cause. Stir Among Del- icate Appetites.
