Of Practical Economy
r By N. E. A. Service
CLEVELAND — Practical econ
omy for momen—this says Mrs. M.
A. Toy, national president, is to be
the prime objective of the fourth
Annual national convention of the
Service St£.r Legion which opens
in Cleveland, Sept. 8.
"We are not essentially club wo
men,” says Mrs. Toy, "we are moth
ers, the women who had service
■tars in our windows during the
years of the war, thus our purpose
In organization is not that of the
regular club."
The Service Star Legion includes
:he War Mothers of America,
American Mothers of National De
lenders, Daughters of the Nation.
Daughters of Liberty, Mothers of
Democracy. Women of American
Patriots, Mothers' Club, White Star

One of the features of the Cleve
land event will he the Hour of Re
membrance which will take place at
Wade Park under the direction of
the Gold Star chairman, Mrs. Mar
garet M. Norris, of Cleveland. This
is scheduled for 2 o’clock Tuesday
afternoon and will be an impressive
ceremonial in honor of gold star
Practically all delegates to the
convention are coming uninstructed,
it is understood. No one, thus far,
is being mentioned as a possible
candidate for president of the or
gani/,aUon. There is an undercur
rent of opinion that an attempt will
be made to re-elect Mrs. Toy; how
ever, having been elected from state
persidency to national office and
having been very actively connected
with the legion since its inception,
she is understood to have expressed
a desire to be relieved from office
this year.
Philip Ames' Pace Startles Me
Chapter 46
I listened for the scream from
Mrs. Amea’ room to be repeated but
there was only dead silence.
"What can it be?” Grace whisper
I couldn't find the voice to an
A few minutes later 1 heard Philip
Ames’ voice in Lila’s room. There
Was a derisive note In it. It fright
ened me. I felt sure something was
wrong, yet I had no right to go into
the room unbidden.
"You had better go!” Grace urged.
“Why?” I

wrong—and it may help If you are
Grace was pushing me toward the
door. I hesitated.
“It doesn’t make any difference
whether you have a right or not—
you must!”
Grace left me no choice. I knocked
lightly on the door.
No answer.
i I knocked again and then opened
[the door.
f v “Come In.” said Mrs. Ames, softly,
| ii timidly I started to withdraw and
close the door.
"Yes. come in. Miss—Sorensen.’*
Philip Ames’ voice was strange:

I had the feeling as he spoke that
his voice was that of a man who had

PHE's chaise lounge with his back
wTard me.
“Any mail?” queried Mrs. Ames.
'•Anything in particular you wanted
•—nothing happened?”
“Nothing!” I said.
Mrs. Ames smiled apologetically.
"Philip isn’t very well this morn
ing. I’m afraid my party will not
go down as one of the ’most elab
orate and enjoyable events of the
season.’ ”
Even though trying to be light,
there was something regretful in
Lila Ames’ tone.
"I’m sorry ho isn’t well,” I said.
"I’ll run through this mail and/take
care of anything in need of imme
diate attention."
I spent thirty minutes at the desk,
during which Lila Ames and her
brother-in-law spoke only occasion
ally, and then just a disconnected
word or two.
I wanted more and more to be out
of the room. I turned to go and
my eyes met for the first time the
face of Philip Ames.
I stifled a scream as I saw it.

John’s club had been giving a
little party for the wives that even
ing. “Sure!” John had said, of
course he was going, when the
bunch of them spoke of it while they
lunched together at noon.
“Get into your glad rags, Girl!”
he called joyously to his wife as he
rushed into tho sitting room, going
on with the story of tho spread the
boys had planned for the evening.
“But the children—1” objected Girl.
Stella was sixteen, but she didn’t like
to leave her with the other children,
and then their clothes needed friend
ing, and if she left so early in the
evening they might not all get their
ears perfectly clean before they
wont to bed.
John slumped down moodily in a
corner of the divan and buried him
self in his paper. Finally without a
word he stalked out of the house.
The only answer to tho Girl’s half
frightened questions regarding his
destination, was a banging of the
And after the ears were all wash
ed and the braids all braided and the
clothes all neatly hung away, the
Girl went into the darkened front
room and cried it out.
John didn’t understand, she
thought. It amazed her a little when
she went back over the days and
found that for four months straight
she had refused every one of John’s
invitations for a good time.
But if she didn’t mend John, Jr.*s
stockings who would? And if she
wasn’t there with them every even
ing to see that all of tho tangles
were combed out and the faces
scrubbed, who would see about it?
There was just so much worrying
and mending and fussing to be done
for each child each day. And no
matter what other duties she en
trusted to paid help, she devoted her
whole life to her children.
Which wouldn’t have been so bad
if, in doing it, she hadn’t forgotten
that the man she married was in a
sense one of them and needed to be
included in her mothering.
The successful wife who is also a
mother, has to make a fine and diffi

Chinese Costumes
Add Color To Teas
NEW YORK—The insidious influ

not with tragic significance.
On the other hand, the invasion
from the Far East is welcomed by
our “best people.”
Smart New York women have
taken up the Chinese costume and
made a fad of it almost overnight.
To be sure, many of us have long
worn Chinese things in negligee, but
this fad is something more than
Chinese costumes are now worn at
teas and other informal, indoor day
affairs. The more daring women
affect trousers and all. The more
conservative digress from tho strict
ly Chinese in favor of a skirt to
match the gorgeous mandarin coat.
The loosely fitting coat and trou
sers, or skirt, are comfortable in the
extreme, they add a pleasing color
to teas and they are something dif
ferent—which is most important.
A smart Chinese negligee is of
jade brocade, embroidered in bands,
with an upstanding collar. Tho coat
is very long and the trousers of the
same color are bound round tho
The all-over embroidered coat,
with its gorgeous birds and flowers,
Is perhaps the most popular. It is
worn with an embroidered skirt as
well as with the trousers.

Oysters are good during months,
the names of which contain an “r."
They are wholesome during the
summer months If fresh, but are not
solid and ate of rather poor flavor.
Oysters are easily digested. Eaten
raw or in a plain stew they are ex
cellent food for children and lnva^
When oysters are served raw they
are usually left In half the shell or
served In cocktail glasses. However
grapefruit shells or green peppers
may be used, very attractively. The
oysters should be thoroughly chilled
for serving.
Oysters on tile Half Shell
Allow six oysters for each person
Have the flsh market man open
them. Arrange on a bed of crushed
ice and serve with a quarter of a
lemon on each plate. This is used
as the first course at a formal
luncheon or dinner.
Seven small raw oysters, 1
dessertspoon tomato catsup, 1 tea
spoon lemfn Juice, *4 teaspoon
grated horseradish, few grains salt,
1 teaspoon minced celery, paprika.
This rule is for individual cock
tails. Wash, drain and chill oysters.
Mix ingredients and chill thoroughly
Serve in cocktail glasses or green
pepper cups on a bed of ice. While
peppers are in season they are a
happy chfljce. Tfce sauce in this
recipe makes an oyster oocktall less
easily digested than oysters on the
Plain Stew
One pint oysters, 2 cups hot milk,
2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon
salt, few grains pepper.
Put oysters in a colander and pour
over one cup water. Save this
liquor. Pick over oysters. Heat
liquor to the foiling point and strain
through a cloth. Add oysters and
cook until plump. Remove oysters
and strain liquor again. Add butter
oysters, liquor, salt and pepper tc
hot milk and heat thoroughly but
do not let boil. Serve at once.

Fall Cleaning
After Sprinkle Blow had gone,
Nancy hunted up the brass polish
and stove polish and silver polish and
floor polish and window polish and
set to work a’shinlng up the fairy
man's house. Nick beat rugs and
moved furniture and did chores of
all sorts, and soon the place shone
like Aladdin's lamp. Wouldn't
Sprinkle Blow be surprised, though
when he returned from his vaca

span, without any trouble to himself
at all!
Everything was done at last and
Nancy, arms akimbo, surveyed thetr
work with pride. "Now, what'll we
do, Nick?” she asked, smoothing
down her apron. "What else can we
Just then her eye fell on the key
to tho house of tho Nuisance Fairies,
hanging on the nail In the wall
where Sprinkle B.ow hsd left It, and
an idea popped into her head. She
had forgotten what the fairyman
had said about not touching it. "Oh,
Nickie, let’s clean house for tho
Nuisance Fairies, too, poor things."
she cried. "I don't suppose that
anybody does anything at all for
them and I’m sure they’d like to be
scrubbed up."
Nick thought it a good Idea. "But,”
l said he, "how can wo get In without
, opening tho door, and if wo open
. the door thoy’ll all get out at once,
• and if they all get out at once, the
earth will have forty kinds of weath

i Blow say?”
Nancy was thoughtful. "I’ll tell
you,” she answered slowly. "We'll
ask oil' Magic Shoe* to mako us
little enough to crawl through tho
key-hole. That’s easy enough."
"But then we can't take the pol
ishes along,” declared Nick. “No,
that won't do.”
"Then," said Nanry firmly, ‘‘we'll
just have to uso the key and be quick
about it."
