JAIL MA EVERYBODY GAZINE PAGE FOR fewest Skirts Are Cut Off at the lodices Mere Wisps of Tulle for Girdle to Cling To at Exhibit of Gowns Brought From Paris in Spite of War.- By MARGARET MASON. Though Susan and Sally . Ate not of the ballet, Their new skirts are all short but sweet; i " For since its their passion To follow the fashion They've cut them about two small feet. NEW YORK, Oct. 9. I saw an exhibition of imported garments it a big department store this week aris to Havre packed in huge osier )sF a touring car. They seemed not J&ear of war. Thp mnsr Qtrilrtno- fohir nf I " jthat each and every skirt was cut off short to the tops of the high fehoes. Possible their hurried journey instead of making them arrive t'eathless with short "pants" had fc' eir skirts. Whatever the cause, ?f well turned ankles that seems just BODICES MERE Next to the shortness of the skirts. t most startling note is the almost t tal lack of anyhing tangible in the bodices. Positively they consist of trerelv a wisp of tulle passing over each frhoulder for a high girdle to cling to desperately. Naturally this is only true of the eve- 1-. ng gowns. One of the prettiest of these is of pale pink velvet with a high rrdle and a tunic that is long on one d and short on the other. The undcr- I.eVdrt is of white satin, and between It i na tne pinic velvet upper tunic is an Intermediary tunic of exquisite cold lmbro!dered net. The bodice, or. course, consists mere ly of the velvet girdle supplemented by fi sugnt drapery or tne gold net ana vhlte tulle caught up on each shoulder with a small gold embroidered orna tnent. A charming model for a debutante is cf palest pink taffeta, with a skirt f.r four-corded flounces, flaring out cjalntly like a veritable crinoline. A full rose nestling in the high girdle and billows of softest blush (I should think It would) pink tulle reveals a snowy throat and perfect arms to the best ad vantage.

"With the approach of colder wea ther, there comes an immediate re quest from the body for more fuel to keep it warm. Just as we must think about starting the furnace In chilly fall days, so we have to plan for heating our bodily furnace with the best kind of fuel food. In the summer, the one class of food that was repugnant and distasteful was fat. But colder weather brings a relish for various forms of fat and more heating food All kinds of fats arc actuallv burned in the body as fuel Sugar is burned indiretly, and these two rats and sugars are the two classes of foods which generate heat and make It possible for "us to w thstand the 1'w tempcraf're of winter. In the tropics, fatty food are almost unknown In po lar reyions, the Eskimo subsists almost entirely n blt-bber and other oils The fats we most commonly use are either vegetable or animal In origin In the vegetable fats we have olive oil, cottonseed oil. the oils from various nuts like the peanut and several commercial preparations like lard In appearance, but which are directly vegetable in origin. Of the animal fats, butter comes flrt then lard, "drippings," ind the much-discussed product, oleo mirsHrine. In no one place in tne kitchen is there such a chance to eronoinlze as in careful handling of Tats and fnlng materials.

Two Frenchmen have invented a piano In which the notes are produced by the wires being set in vibration by an electro-magnet instead of being Ftruck by hammers. The mechanism is opeiated In the usual way by a keyboard, but, in stead of dyin gradually away at. they I do with ordinary piano notes, maintain their volume as long as the key is pressed. The effect produced Is similar to that of an or can. At Valencia, In Spain, a steel road has been In use for over fifteen years.

WISPS OF TULLE. The lace Is caught on each side of the girdle In front, passed over the sho;:! ders llko a cape tne width of the tare being the whole length of the arms. It is sewed up into long tight sleeves, through which the arms are sllpicd. and then the lace keeps on Its way around into the ciicular cape effect and is caught In the middle of the girdle behind. Hence the wearer looks as If she hud sprouted a nair of chantilly wings which she, undoubtedly, finds j very irksome when she feels her back i hair needs fixing. Among the suits and afternoon frocks fur is all and everywhere. Fitch skunk and our old friend the beaver are the favorites. The newest collars shown on the coat suits are deep flat effects that reach from the shoulder to shoulder in th rear, intruding in the front a little bit. They are irostly of the fur. but a few are developed in heavy silk or velvet. Black velvet, by the way. and black satin form most of the afternoon gowns, while irabardines. velvets and broadcloths compose the smartest suits. On the gowns, the waistlines are pref erably long and either tlghtflttlng or showing the loose, straight line. The separate waists and blouses to the coat suits all show the high waistline. In the whole collection there isn't a frock or a suit that doesn't have some glint of a gold ornament, a shimmer of sequins, a glean of Jet or the shine of a button or bead. Tills year all thct glitters Is not gold! It's sequins, spangles, and what you will just so it gleams, glints or glistens. tles of fat and a shameful waste goes on of beef suet, pork trim mings thrown into the garbage. A better way to render small ouan tlties of fat than the usual frying pan method is to put the kettle in a slow oven, which will render it Just as perfectly without as much odor or unpleasantness. A good plan Is to have four or five separate small cups or jars for each fllnd of fit and to economically save and add to them whatever meat fats are left over. Butterine has been far too much maligned. The best grades of but tenne are under such strict Gov ernment inspection that th ?y are more carefully made than manv butters. The basis of butterine la white beef fat, and this is not on! unobjectionable but it is extremely wholesome The fact that it is un colored and unbuttcrllke In appear ance should not prevent housewives from using It In many sauces and other cooking. Few American housewives scm to Ilk- frying In a liquid fat like olive or cottonM ed oil. But a good cot tonseed cl! or peanut oil makes tho 1 est of frying materia's and one generally fer less ,'X!nslve than lard or butter Indeed the dislike for a high grade of eottonsecd oil must be overcome It Is not olive oil. but it Is In Itself a good oil. and one which ran tind many uss In the kitchen. Similarly manv of the com mercial vegetable products spoken of above are more wholesome than lard and sell also at a lower price. It is only necessary for the housewife to look around a bit ind And several good vegetable and animal oils and fntB which she generally jverlooks.

(Copyright, mi. Newspaper rtur rvle.) The Daily Editorial For Women The Pin-Woman. By BETH JEFFRIES. "Xever do today what you can put off until tomorrow." This is the motto of tho Pin "Woman, that creature who Is ever in our midst, and who would rather pin herself to gether than appear clad in the proper manner. She pins the decorations on her hat, she pins up the tears in her petticoat, and she would rather spend twenty min utes pinning her fresh collar in her blouse at the last possible moment, than take five minutes the day before, and sew it in. If she has the habit at all she has it bad, and she is simply alive with pins. She hates the wind, for It loosens her here, and tears her craftily concealed slouchlncss there, leaving her make shifts exposed to the other woman. Men know her and fear her, for she is a snare and a delusion, and must be avoided. Other women are of two kinds. They either admire her skill in the use of the pin, or despise her in their hearts for a careless and deceitful slouch. The remarkable thing about the Pin Woman is that her make-shift tenden cies assert themselves In other lines, proving that the excessive employment of pins on the person is an indication of a degenerate moral state. For the woman who uses pins Is in variably slouchy about her house keep ing. Her mind is as chaotic and scat tered as her efforts in dress, and she Is utterly Incapable of any action which calls for secure and fixed, systematic endeavor. Her mind. Instead of being on her work, is centered on the multi furious pins which re-enforce her per son. Reware of her, and df her pernicious habit!

It would mean a long engagement, which Is alwavs un fortunate and only excusable when Uvo people care very deenly for each other The Idea that a girl will get a bad reputation from having manv friends among the boys Is silly. A girl shot-Id have Just as many hoy friends as she ran manirgo to attract and hold; then she Is not so apt to marry too yoi-ng. and Is likely to know her own mind when she does deride to take that step.
