But yesterday she walked proudly down F street with a wrist-watch youth on either side of her, and at Fourteenth and F 'when she passed the corner wiser a bevy of college prodigal sons were gathered, she received as ninny admiring glances as did the girl ahead' of her (who? to the piercing eye of wom an was si bono- fide "eighteen misses"). In fact she might have been the young woman's prototype. From head to toe they were as alike as convicts. Each wore a small fur-trimmed turban, each a tight-fitting basque suit with a lUf fle skirt, fur on the hem of the coa. and far about the neck and sleeves. Andr "high, side-laced colored' boots to ifeiteh the salt were very evident by virtus of short, spare skirts. She chatted gayly, and talked not of mundane governmenty mustinesses, but of politics, and fashion, and Mrs. V. Castle, and Rosleka Schwimmcr, and made a joke about Noah and the Peace Ship, and spoke of everything as be ing "smart" or "perfectly corking," and of adoring ever so many things right oS hand. And when one of the. youths said something which made the other boy laugh she looked at- him and crinkled up her nose (tbat same nose which six months before was NEVER crinkled under any circumstances and greased with cold cream every night;, asjd said: "Oh I I love it!"

She paused and pushed her cup aside, so that she might lean lux urlously upon her elbows. Her cheeks began to get pink and her eyes (which always wore pretty) began to -dance. "I askd for my usual tailored model, you know, lapels, plain and severe, and I couldn't- set one. I couldn't And one for love 6r moniy that was what I would wear.

But, do you know, from that minute, the women who had always been pleasant to me began to freete me out, and the men who had never looked at me began to hang on my desk, also my words.

Chrtsi.ns Frederick,) W HT In many homes is the chafing dish relegated to the sideboard as an almost useless ornament, dragged forth only for "company?" If the chafing dish proves Itself a useful and practical means of pre paring a meal for guests, why la It not equally good to cook family meals, especially the lighter supper, tea, and luncheon 7 Many a time when the hostess heraelt has to pre pare meals she would save herself labor by using the chaflnji dish in stead of cooking In the kitchen nnd trotting back and forth With the var ious foods. Perhaps, too, father would not complain bo much that he "doesn't get a chance to talk to moth er" because she has to spend so much time preparing a meal If moth tr'tised tho chafing dish and talkod while she cooked, Once accustomed to the use of cooking on the table. It becomes lust as natural and easy ns cooking. In ft special place like the kitchen. The points In favor of the chafing dish are that it obviates the necessity of the hostess riling, that tho food can be served piping hot. nnd that with Its btaser and pan it In one of the most sanitary food vessels to use and rlean. Many aitlclrs used in fimlly sup . per, such as creamed chip beef, oys ter slew, broiled or panned chops, THE' VERY LATEST COLLARS "Sttr" .jt4 LovtS &'&-)-0jL t HERE is always .art interesting tale to be tpid ' of neckwear, for it is in this phase of dress that the designer best shows his originality. He depends upon the collar to proclaim the period or the character of the frock, and the student of fashion who would the "tale unfold''- has only to glance at the neck-line. History repeats itself in the upstanding collar of the Louis XV, and the Directoire periods. It is de veloped in rich materials, such as velvet, embroidery, fur or brocaded satin, andhugs the neck snugly, extending high. o:er the ears. The example shown here is attached to a coat and is fashioned of kitten's ear cloth banded with velvet. It is lined with fur which rolls over the edge. Only the short-haired peltries such as sealskin, beaver, moleskin and ermine are favored for this purpose. If your prefer a tale of daring courage and bold adventure,, the military collar will win your interest and approval. It also savors of other days and in spires a mental vision of the gorgeously attired and A Few Easy Recipes By ANN MARIE LLOYD. Cheese Soup. The Ingredients required for this are one pound of Spanish onions, two ounces of a strong cheese, such as Gray ere, one ounoe of butter, half a pint of milk, one ounce of flour, one quart of stock, salt and pepper. Slice the onions, pour boiling water over them, cover them with a plat, and leave for a few minutes. Then pour the water off. Take the stock, boll it put in the onions, and cook them up. till Dish Supper kidneys and very many more of the dishes having a creamed sauoe can be prepared fully as well in the chaf ing dish as over any other kind of fuel. Why not use the chafing dish blazer, Instead of tho ugly frying, pan to oook the hamburg steak balls for tonight's supper T if the salad and dessort are alroadv prepared, the balls can bo made ready, cooked In the dish at the table and served directly to each plate without even soiling the platter, A winter breakfast of creamed cod fish can be managed most effectively in the blaser, as can bacon, sausages, and other morning dainties. Oysters' now In season can be sauted, frlod with bacon, or made Into a etew be fore our very eyes. The chafing dish burner does not smoke and make an odor as does the kitchen range, and it used with a Percolator or toaster, there Is no reason why an entire meal cannot be made and perved vis-a-vla. t'olish up the chafing dfsh-lnstalt It on the side table Instead of be hind closed doors, and use It every day In the week. Why allow an ex pensive piece of equipment-to be used once a month? If you have a cur rent, use the connections and plug, which, will permit your chaftntr dkji to be operated electrically. It will be a change and cosier than getting breakfast all by yourself In the kitchen these winter mornings. lr A."'CbP' SBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBsBRBBBBBsllBBBBBBBBBBBBnaSBBBsK jfejv f&ijHr saiaaaaaaHi.a.LiBaaaalaaaifceV&3t iHPiallllllllllllllllllllllwOTsl ' MTmm IsBBBMBsfvaSkBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBr AA JsBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBWrSBBBBBtST mance, from the tender enough to pass through a sve.
