B. U. Thia Render l)oti Not Wante v Kit her Time Nor Material. L/Kjyil ELIZABETH LATTIMER: Here are several "made-cver ideas < \yiilch came as Inspirations to me and uivo proven their worth by the amount i*. they saved me. My boy of two needed a dsrk coat or general use, his only coat being of '* ivum serge was not practical for every *y use. I look a discarded eoat of i?rown, black and white shepherd check , hat had been In use for five years and uid given icood servlco to two younger . els tars, ripped It up and washed it in gx. It Hashed and Ironed beautifully, ud was mora than enough for a straight, / touble-breustcd coaf. Looking through 'he ragbag J found a tan slik messuline '? lining from a spring coat Of six years Jgo. After washing It It was rather light in color, so I dipped Jt in strong rea. thus making If a darker and more serviceable shade. I also found a piece of canton flannel large enough to Inter / line the coat to the waistline. In the button bag were brown horn buttons to .i trtd u smart touch. This coat cost me lOthlng but the time, and I consider it ? ?uite a saving. . Four winters ajfo 1 had a s^iit with a sat. bottom of dropsklrt ana cufTs of ?striped material that harmonised besu 'Ifully with the blue cloth of the suit, f bought enough new blue material to ,i ' omblne with the striped and made it <nto a good-looking dress. The new ma larial cost me $4.50, the total cost of the ? r*ss. f wanted a new bag. so I bought an ?mber frame for 50 cents and a bottle .? f cut-steel beads for 00 cents. Using ?* .ome black velvet scraps 1 had and a m ??lece of Copen blue ribbon for a lining <that had been used as hair ribbon), I ?eaded the bag, put on a tassel, which r also had. and my dollar velvet bag >>aa the appearance of a flve-dollar one. w I enjoy your corner of the Woman's I'age so much and the Hints are Inter ring ana helpful. MRR. M. P. r Another Use For Old Shirta. *'JJBAR ELIZABETH LATTIMER: Dnrlng the winter, when sport shirts ire untidy looking. I thought of a plan \jy which I could utilise many sport ? hlrts for a youth of twelve, so as to save money and also have somn new shirta By cutting close nround the neckband I cut the wide collar off and 'aking a small piece of the collar I hsd ;uat cot off 1 made a binding for the neckband. Putting a small hole In the I'aek of the binding or by sewing a xtnall batten on the binding, I died It ho as to be able 4o pot on a soft or stiff foliar. I think In this manner 1 saved a edllar or more. 11RS. L A. S. Rtct the Men Are . Practicing Economy.

DKAR KI.IZABKTH I.ATT1MKH Everyone knowa how unalghtly la a clock that does not go. and perhapa everyone knowa, too, that the coat of having a clock overhauled thea?* days la very high. Wo had a mantel clock which refuaed to go and whtch we found would coat several dollar* for cleaning, etc. So 1 looked It over and found that the entire works, with the face attach' ed, could be easily removed. Thia I did and then 1 took an ordinary alarm clock which we had in the house and aubati tuted it for the old clock worka. By re moving the legs and the top bell and by uaing a cardboard box to brine It to the proper level, it was u almple matter to fit It into the open face, and we now have our mantel clock again in watlnfac tory service without the expenditure of any money. * * P.

I wish Mr. Brewer would send in his "Kitchen Favorites." I would be delighted to have them. DKAR ELIZABETH LATTIMER: 1. TO SAVE FUEL COST?Save all old newspapers. Roll them into a tight roll and use for fuel. It ia surprising the amount of heat which a week's dallies will give. The tight rolling will make them burn longer. 2.

A round one knob tie the corner of a handkerchief and tie the opposite corner to the knob on the other aide of the door. The doth will deaden the sound made hy closing the door. Thia will save many a sick person from annoyance. 6. TO REMOVE SCORCH QUICKLY ?Dampen a white cloth with peroxide, using a piece large enough to cover the acorched portion. Lay it over the place and iron until dry. If not entirely re moved, repeat the operation. Use only white material. 6. A HANDY CLOTHES SPRINKLER ??Get a cork that will fit tightly into a quart bottle. CJut small strips from the eork all around. Fill the bottle with water. Place a corckscrew in the cork so that It can be removed easily when you wiah to refill the bottle. 7. TO REMOVE INK STAINS?Wash the spots in strong vinegar. It will not fall to remove the stain. ?V A LEMON JUICE HELP?Wheat running dates, figs or raisins through the food chopper, add a few drops of lemon Juice to prevent the fruit from clogging the chopper. 0.

Aa irfcMwM(f4 authority on nil matters pcrtaialag to tie komr. TH1SKE are a number of llttlo Jobs> that the handy man '-tin do about the house during the cold season that will ntahe both (or convenience and efficiency. Very often the mistress of the home does not know just what she wants done, with the result that the home goes on year after year In the name old way. Or, knowing, she malifcs no note of It, and it Just slips her mind. It is well to have a pad at hand ! on which to jot down different "jobs to be done" as tliey become apparent. Then, when the rather disagreeable days arrive, the hant'y ri'an of the house will know just liuw- he may improve the hom?. or arrange (t so as to give you mor leisure to enjoy the great outdo.? ! when springtime comes again i I>o you flntf the household's shoo.' i and rubbers always in th?y way? I These unsightly things may be put | in a place where they will be easily available and out of sight if yout | tiandy man will help you out. Have the lowest step of the stairs made into a box. The tread of this step may be hinged to act as a cove'. This "box" may be lined with zinc or oilcloth or heavy paper. Have you a shoe scraper before your entrance door? This will save ?- much tracking of snow or mud Into the hou^e if you will have one con veniently placed. The kitchen in most every home can stand some improvement. Have you enough shelves and cuplior.rds? V<>u have not i.nough if you must I ack all your pots an 1 pans Into a small cupboard necessitating n search each time you *iMi ?o use one. Have enough shelf room, if possible, to set utenslles oC different size and shapes. A shelf over the sink to accom modate the soap, washing so.la, metal polish and the like Is mighty convenient. Another shelf near the stovo for coffee can, tea can. the coffee and the teapot, salt, pepper, matches, etc., saves many steps and much time. ,If you can manage to have the kitchen table six Inches he'ow the waist line. It will lessen the strain upon your erswhite aching back. Women who have small kitchens always complain that they never have enough table spac?.. Prop i leaves arranged at convenient places will greatly Increase the table space and drop conveniently ?out of the way when not needed. I Do you jumble all you smaller kltchert tools Into a table drawer and have to search to find the t>o tftto masher <>r egg-beater when needed? Try lo have your handy i man put up a separate hook for each article--especially for those j used frequently. If your handy man will tack a leather strap on the Inside of a door and place tacks at Intervals, you will find It wonderfully con venient for holding the carving knife, the pnrlng knife, the knife sharpener, etc. Have made a set of poeljets, each one labeled, perhaps with embroid ery cotton. Tttfs, the handy man may arrange to hang on the back of a cupboard door. One pocket may contain corks, another cord or paper sacks, or the Ice account or milk bills, or whatever you will. If your helper Is clever, perhaps he can arrange to bring a light right over your stove so you may ?"f what you are rooking To* the lljhf !? In tf"e -enter of the room, and a woman stands in her own light at the cook stove. A small, round hole sawed in the table at which you prepare vpge I tables with the garbage can placed ' underneath the hole, will al^vlate | the necessity of currying each 1 meal's garbage from the table to [ the can. A piece of wood may be ? fitted into this hole when it stems > I best to close it up. A box with hinged cover, lined ' with line by a tinner, may hold soil ed dishes, making it necessary to wash dishes but once each day. T mentiou this box often, but it is ? such a wonderful help to more Iris- | j ure for the housewife that X urn J tempted to bring It pften to the | | home-maker's attention. Have you a tray 011 wheels? 1 1 saw one made from the wheels j j from a child's go-cart and a small ? j table. The handy man made a j !? double-deck affair of this and add- j j ed a convenient handle by which it ! could be pushed from kitchen to I i dining room or to the sick room, j It's a step saver indeed. It may j I carry a whole meal to the table or j remove all the soiled dishes at one 1 time. Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen should have a clock. Have ) > on one? An alarm clock to re t -'I one that something has been i ?lukins the necessary half hour is ; best. The handy man will put this j in a convenient place. A varnished oilcloth increases its time for wearing considerably by scrubbing it clean first, and w hen it is thoroughly dry. let your handy man varnish it with the best varnish obtainable.

And again said I Arabella, "Now, I wouldn't have you tell her, but Mrs. Smith Is lnz.v as can be. and her sink Is overflowing with soiled dishes while she's going to dinner dance ami party and pink tea. True, she says her health Is failing; but her nerve is still unail Ing. for she always linds some means by which to shirk.

Suppo?c its view were blurred or suddenly obscured by the erection of an ugly building. Would not your very soul cry out against this disturbance of Its ecstasy? Well, my Tounc Friend, you arc my thing of rarest beauty.

Why do you not understand that Heaven fashioned You out of a piece of divinity and go courageously forward to the slow achievement of that supe>b destiny for which you were thus consecrated? Why have anything to do with meanness or selfishness? Why waste your precious time and talents In dissipation? Why de bauch your" powerful brain with drink or drugs? "Why content your self with being a pigmy when you are potentially a giant? Whether you are a carpenter or a cartoonist, a plumber or a pianist, a bricklayer or a banker?I have tried on other occasions to tell you how to realize the fineness in your nature. I have urged you to strive to be superb among your class and kind.

TO wear under the narrow frocks and suits of the winter one ' finds the new silk pettlbock ; cr most comfortable. Vettlbockere, j n o matter how scant they are fashioned, hue an annoying way of bunching up in the front, and for this reason bloomers have taken their place. The new pettibockers are really ankle-length bloomers, but when worn they resemble ,a petticoat. when you don that black velvet clinging gown try wearing black silk pettibockers. A stunning pair for this purpose may be purchased i'or $7 In the shops. The jersey "ilk extends to the ankles und in met there by a frill of satin closely pi'-a ted. Very warm, too? are these.

Dull colors are cltosen and pastel shades are well liked, too Sometimes there are no frills on these sport bloomers, but they are . finished with buttons at the bottom. ?

Delightfully dainty .ire the pet tibockers made of flesh colored georgette crepe and trimmed lavish ly with exquisite lace and orchid tinted ribbons. These are very sim ple to fashion at home, and there are a number of excellent patterns that are easy to follow.
