Also one deep, shaped rjmie may be npplied in such manner that it forms an apron drapery. Simple Lines Popular. It is perfectly possible to remodel some of last season's or season before last's frocks by the addition of ruffles if the skirt Is not gored. The gored skirt Is one of the things both dress makers and tailors shake tbair heads over, and If thev are really sincere In their wish to have their patrons look well dressed will refuse to undertake. So the woman who has some excellent material made In a gored skirt would better put It away In moth balls ana forget It until such time as the wheel of fashion stops at gores again. It is significant that the shops that make a specialty of hand-made frocks of the most exquisite and expensive variety cling persistently to the simple lines and trimming. They put eo much daistiness into the making that the lit tle frocks gain in distinction which no amount of trimming could give them. There is a charming puffed skirt that has great popularity in summer models. It seems to be most effective when It is made in figured mulle or some fabric and pattern which suggests the Dolly Varden era. It has a puffed portion that extends to below the hiD line and from there the skirt is plain. Another i version of the puff has the fulness on j the sides of the skirt caught at the ' Knees or Just below with ribbon bows, and if the lower portion, is left a tiny bit higher on each side of the hem the effect is much smarter.

CHRISTINE FREDERICK. There are as many kinds of strain ers as there are social settlements. Some are big strainers and others are little ones, and the strainer may be said to be the thermometer of the cook's excellence. The right kind of strainers, rightly used, would bring her up to 100 perfection; in different strainers would make the cooks' reading below zero. Many housekeepers seem to get along with one collander, but & supply of strainers of varying "Size or meshes are needed to make per fect the many dishes where velvety smoothness and freedom from par ticles really mean the success of the dish. One of the best commercial strain ers consists of a tinned hoop. Into which fit three different meshed strainers. One is very fine for mak ing consomme, gelatine, etc. The second mesh would be for apple sauce and other fruits, and the coarsest would be best for tomato and other purees. In this way three strainers are combined in one tool, which means savea shelf space. Another good strainer is made of well tinned material, and looks like a huge tin perforated bowl, which fits into a permanent bracket or stand screwed to the table. Inside the perforated bowl is a small handled plate, with which the food particles are pushed or . scraped against the perforations, thus forc ing them-through the holes into a bowl, which should be placed under the strainer as it stands on the table. This has all the advantages of a stationary fixture, and a sta bility that none of the wobbly hand strainers have. The Important point to consider about a strainer s the finish. Un less well made, the mesh will pull apart from the frame or hoop, and, of course, the strainer Is then use less. I find women have al wrong Idea of what price they should pay for such a device. About 25 cents is what many would consider the right price. But no article really worth buying can be bought for such a price. Either 75 cents or Jl must be paid for a really well-made ar ticle of medium size with two or more meshes. In summer especially, our food must be dainty, and free from lump and fragments of fat or sedi ment. In all the summer dishes, creams gelatines, iced boullllon. and fruit dishes, a strainer is a neces sity. Have we a good one? Have we one that will do different grades of straining? It is a most useful strm mer tool. Copyright. 1514, by Mrs Christine Frederick. When the Cherries Are Ripe, at Home CHERRIES are ripe in California.

It was a little, old, spready tree, this particular one. and there was a knothole In the trunk, and every spring the bluebirds built their nest In that knothole. We children would have it that It was the same pair of birds every year, and we called them Mr. and Mrs. Bluebell and watched for their coming as If they were old and valued friends. And, oh, the white, white blossoms on that tree; and, oh, the sweet, sweet fragrance of them; and when the wind blew and the sun shone, oh. the dancing shadows on the spring grass. i used to sit under that tree for hours at a time and think I was thlnking-and I was only being happy.

The green leaves around the crown of the hat are the same color as the moire ribbon. The underportion of the hat is lined in black.

It is a fact that men nice men. too will frivol with a girl to just the extent she will let them and the very fact that o. brother won't let his sister be have so Is proof of his opinion, and the opinion of the average man. of a girl who does.

But marrying him. so there Is no need of think it over long and hard before you take such a step. Remember that your mother has your happiness and Interests at heart and probably has some very good reasons for not wanting you to marry the man. Remember that he has already made one woman unhappy enough to divorce him. Remember to count the cost before you take a step so very Important against the wishes of your mother. And. If. alter think ing It all out, you find there Is noth ing else for you to do, try to bring your mother round to your way of thinking. At any rate, no matter what hapens, don't start deceiving her. don't start meeting clandestinely, for, I know I have said It before and I mean to say ft again, there can no good come of It. If there Is no thought In your mind of anything so serious as marriage, 1 It Is only a question of a. pleasant friend, ship. then. I feel that you should be ullllng to give It up for your mother's saKe. Dear Miss Laurie: A you are giving so many young glrU advice, and I hope they follow It, I would like you to give me some, for which I thank you in advance. I am a young girl, eighteen years old, and am considered right good looking, but 1 have never had a beau. Don't you think It Is time that I should get one? I cannot understand the reason, but. to tell the truth, the young men do not take a fancy to me. I know I am awfully self-conscious, and bash ful, but I think If a young man likes a young girl, that would sot make any difference. Do you think flirting on the street Is nice? Well, I have made up my mind that I would not go with a ft How unless I had an Introduction to h'm. I do not think flirting shows one's training. I wonder If I am too cholcy. Do you think so. by what I have told you? Can you help me to get a beau? Don't you think I have lots of un necessary trouble? If you can help me out. I will try and follow your ad vice. LONESOME. Pco little "Lonesome," you do havs a hard time, don't you? And how s Anniu Laurie to help you get a, beau? Self-consciousness and bashfulness cer talrlr don't make any difference when a n-an likes a girl, but the point Is. they may keep him from beginning to like her. How Is a man to know what a sweet companionable person a girl can bi, if she Is too shy to open her mouth? And extreme self-con3Clousnes always rrake a person appear silly, right against those two faults, remember that thero is a difference between being do muidy quiet, sweetly chy, whteh In a ycung girl Is very attractive, and being stolidly bashful, which Is Just plain sti'pld and ulntelllgent. Be yourself. s.iy what comes Into ycur head to say. If It be worth saying, be friendly and gtaclcuB to the people you meet, and don't think about yojrsclf all the tlnw o- about other people In relation to yoiirtclf. And. little girl, don't worry too much about not having "a beau." That will ccme all in good time and, meanwhile, there are lots of things Just as im portant In the worlJ. The girls of eighteen who are having beaux and thinking themselves very much In love are pust going through attacks of "puppy love." which dim the beauty o the real thing when It does come. As for flirting In the street. I can't tell you how vulgar and unladylike that is. in my opinion, esldes, it is utterly silly and useless. If carried no further than a nod and smile In passing, and dangerous if It amounts to any more How does a girl know what sort of a man she is "picking up" or letting pick her up? He might, of course, be a de cent sort of a chap, for even the best of men will flirt with a girl who en courages them: but on the other hand she might get tangled up with the worst sort of a reprobate, who would gel her In all sorts of trouble. And no man. decent or otherwise, will have much ; opinion of the girl who picks him up., Of course, a girl who Is in business Is nften thrown with men to whom she Is not formally Introduced, but whom she sees often and learns to know quite well. Naturally. I don't mean that she should stand on ceremony with them and demand an Introduction: but what I am scoring, and feel that I can't score too heavily. Is the practice of de-1 llberately flirting with men who are quite strange and about whom a girl , knows aDsoiuteiy noining. xietter De beauless all your life, my dear though I don't think you need fear anything like that than so lower yourself.
