For Tennis and Canoeing «r 4T À m Two handsome costumes for the outdoor girl are shown here. While in this case worn for tennis, the white serge gown pictured to the left might just as appropriately be worn for boating. The striped flannel dress illustrated to the right is particularly adapted to canoeing. £ <$> <S*5 HOW TO GLEAN THINGS. To remove machine grease from clothing add a little ammonia and soap to cold water and apply to the fabric. This does not remove the colors. When cleaning decanters use soapy water and some tine sand, shaking the decanter until the glass is clean, then rinsing with fresh water and finally with alcohol. Hub silverware with either a brush or a soft cloth, then rinse off the kero sene with scalding water. The most tarnished pieces thus treated take on a fine luster, which lasts a long time. Here is a discovery which has been of great help in taking out mildew: Make a thick paste of table salt and buttermilk and cover the mildew with it. Lay in the hot sun for a <ftly. re newing the paste at the end of four hours If the stains are obstinate sev eral applications may be necessary be fore they entirely disappear. Sofa Pillow Filling. Take the amount of cotton needed and put in a hot oven. Pull until light and keep turning until it is an even brown all over, then till the pillow. It will be as light and fluffy as feathers and will not wad up. Ironing Day Hint. If clothes are to be ironed soon after they are dry use hot water for sprin kling them They will dampen more quickly and evenly than if cold water is used.

Gay Colors Lend a Touch of Chic t® Simplest Lingerie Gown, White gowns are more charming than ever this season. The iray em broideries that adorn collars and sleeves or the jaunty sashes that out line waists contribute to this effect. It is the ruling of Dame Fashion that the color of hat, parasol and sash shall harmonize. If not match. The conse quence of ibis use of color is that women who hitfierto have always found the dead white of a lingerie gown unbecoming, can now wear it with success and personal satisfaction. Dashes of color add smartness to the prevailing fashions. If you want to look smart and at the same time re flect coolness use colors as a seasoning for white. That is what those who "know how" are doing this summer. Gay parasols are gayer than ever, and coats for outing purposes are of clear, brilliant greens, reds and yellows. White accented by some keen, clear color is the secret of the chic of the summer season of 1913. For Cleaning Windows. When cleaning windows, instead of using soap and water try the follow ing plan: Moisten a cloth with wood alcohol and apply to the window Polish immediately with a dry cloth. Hy doing this you will find the win dows can be cleaned in half the time with a fraction of the labor, and the glass will be brilliant, never cloudy. It also keeps the windows free from frost in cold weather. One pint of al cohol will do twenty windows inside i and out. !

Make a soft custard of one large cupful of milk, one egg, two tablespoonfuls of sugar and one-half teaspoonful of va nilla. Pour over the cake and serve. For Summer Dances. Trimmings of flowers are much used on dancing frocks. Sometimes the low cut neck is edged with a small wreath of rosebuds or other flowers, and the same trimming idea is carried out in the skirt. Occasionally the flowers are put on the lining, so that only a glimpse of them can be had. This is also very effective. Many dance frocks are worn with fancy trimmed corset covers, the outer waist being of a very simple type and very sheer. Fancy sashes are used, showing the cubist and futurist colorings and sometimes a combination of two or more plain colored ribbons. All For the Boys and Girls HOW, WHEN, WHERE? A Game In Which the Chosen Word I* to Be Guessed. In playing this game one of the com pany goes out of the room while the others choose a word to be guessed, one with two or three different mean ings being the best. We will suppose that the word "spring" has been thought of. When the person who is outside the room is recalled he asks each one in succes sion. "How do you like it?" The an swers may be. "Dry" (meaning the season). "Cold and clear" (a spring of water), "Strong" m watch spring) and "High" (a jump). The next question is. "When do you like it?" The answers may be. "When 1 am in the country," "When I'm thirsty," "When niy watch is broken." The next question is, "Where do you like it?" And the answers may be, "Anywhere and everywhere," "In hot weather," "In the clock." The game consists in trying to guess the word after any of the answers, and if guessed right the player last questioned takes the place of the one who is guessing: it' wrongly, the ques tioner must try again. What Is the Article Thought Of? The company may be asked to think of some article in the room. < »ne of the pair who are in the secret previ ously leaves the room. When some thing has been decided upon lie is called back. Suppose they have fixed upon the clock. The question may run some thing like this: "You are to name the article in lliis room which has been thought of. Is it the wall paper?" "No." "Is it the curtain?" "No." "Is it the morror?" "No." "is it the arm chair?" "No." "' s it the clock.'" "Yes." This seems puzzling, but the trick is ! easy, the questioner having arranged I that the right article shall be mention j ed next after something that has four j legs. , ... Flies on a Card. Cut several small pieces of card board about the size of a visiting card and draw six flies on each, numbering them from one to six. The object of the game is to see who can first cover all the flies by throwing with a die. Each player in turn throws with a die and covers the fly corresponding to the number thrown. He who covers or kills all the flies first wins. As a va riation eighteen pieces can be used, each player throwing three times in stead of once. After the first three throws the game begins to get excit ing, as the exact numbers necessary to Ü1I the card are seldom thrown. Love Laughs at Locksmiths •t •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••■»••••••••••••••••••••** By EDGAR E. HEMINGWAY C LARICE VANTIXE sat in the coolest corner of the hotel piaz za idly strumming upon her guitar. The light from the par lor window fell at her feet, a broad band of yellow streaking the soft gloom of the vine hung corner. Some one was picking out popular songs with one finger, but presently the la bored playing ceased, and Clarice gave a sigh of relief. Her aunt, Mrs. Harvan, sighed also in deep satisfaction—not, however, over the departure of the pianist, because she had been deaf to music and all other sounds these ten comfortable years. Her contentment was due to the fact that she had steered Clarice through an entire summer at Ocean View without once having permitted a tete-a-tete with Carleton Jason, though he had not missed a single Sunday since their arrival. Carl Jason had made this final trip to the shore expressly to lay his heart and his comfortable little fortune at the feet of Clarice—that is, provided Mrs. Harvan would kindly get out of his way long enough. Prowling round the porch this very moment, he real ized that he should have sailed for Eu rope a week since and that on the fol lowing Saturday be must start, wheth er his love story moved on another chapter or not. Worst of all, this was Clarice's last night at the hotel. Sud denly his eye caught the gleam of Clarice's guitar. He started to his feet; then, with well assumed noncha lance, strolled into the parlor Clarice drew a breath of happy re lief when she recognized the touch. No one but Carl played just like that, and now he was putting his very soul into Tosti's "Goodby." A moment's pause, and then Clarice sudled merrily, for there floated out from the parlor the strains of a popu lar song, "Ain't It a Shame?" The guitar promptly answered, "I's Wait ed, Honey—Waited Long For You." ! Back from the piano rang "I Thought I Heard Somebody Calling Me." And I she smiled again as a moment later j 1 j ! of or to THE GREAT-GRANDCHILD OF FRANCIS SCOTT KEY. It was while imprisoned aboard a British warship during the bombard ment of Fort McHenry that Francis Scott Key wrote that famous song,. "The Star Spangled Banner." It was "by the dawn's early light" that the author again gazed upon a scene he had viewed "at the twilight's AW.M.W m Photo by American Press Association. Grace Scott Key, Great-granddaughter of Famous Composer. Inst gleaming." He saw that "the flag was still there." Moating proudly over the fort so bravely defended by his countrymen. The little miss shown in the picture is the great-grandchild of the composer. Her name is Grace Scott Key. a of re the music changed to "Take Your Cl othes and Go," for slie realized that this musical hint was not foj her. Carl waited a moment for her com ment, which came tinkling in the re frain of "You're All Right, but You Can't Iting In," to be answered by "I Don't Want to Play In Your Yard' and "Won't You Come Out and Play?' from the piano. Clarice glanced at her aunt. "In tht Sweet By and By" she played, and ea ger response came in "Oh, Promise Me!" and that his meaning might be perfectly clear Carl rau in a few famil iar bars from the "Lohengrin" wed j ding march. A vivid blush mounted 1 to the girl's forehead, and she glanced j nervously at her aunt. Surely such a ! keen eyed chaperon must mark her em barrassment. For a moment the guitai lay untouched. Clarice was pondering the question, and not until the first few strains of "Answer" floated out upon the night did she again pick up her instrument. But her decision had now been reached, and right bravely she played "I'll Be Your Honeysuckle You Be the Bee." A mighty crash emanated from tht piano, followed by the lively chorus ot "I'm the Luckiest Coon In Town;" £ second's pause, then, with martial swing, "Hold the Fort. For I Am Com ing'." When Carl stepped out on the piazza Mrs. Harvan regarded him with an un favorable eye. When he bent over Clarice's hand she frowned. "I have asked Clarice to marry me. Mrs. Harvan," he explained, "and she says yes. I must go abroad on Satur day next, and I'd like to take her with me. Won't you come with us?" "When did you ask her?" demanded the old lady suspiciously. "Just now," he made answer into the ear trumpet. "I played my proposa on the piano." "Well, if you were shrewd enough to do that you were bound to get her some time, so I might as well yield. But, as for that trip, I don't care for the sea, and I—I guess you'd enjoy your honeymoon better alone." THE THREE CROSSES. Do You Know the Difference Betwssn Latin, Greek and St. Andrew's? Do the boys and girls know the dif ference between the Latin. Greek and St. Andrew's crosses? Many grown people do not, and it is reasonable tc assume that the younger readers may need the information. The Latin cross is the one witb which we are all familiar. The lower limb is a good deal longer than the other three limbs. The Greek cross, on the contrary, has all the limbs of equal length—two pieces crossed in the mid dle at right angles. St. Andrew's cross is in the form of the letter X. The Greek cross is sometimes called the cross of St. George and is blended with that of St. Andrew to form the flag called the union jack. Greyhounds the Oldest Dogs. The greyhound is the oldest domestic* dog and can be traced back by sculp tu res and frescoes for thirteen cen turies before the Christian era. A group of greyhounds fondling each other at the British museum must be more than 2.000 years old, and some of the dogs depicted in hunting scenes on the Egyptian monuments are of the greyhound type. Greyhounds have j been popular In England since King Canute's time, but nobody but a "gen i tleman" or a freeholder was allowed to keep them. Even so recently as j 18."3 a license to keep a greyhound cost ' -Sti. which was nearly treble the tas imposed by the state on other dogs. Little Miss Make Believe, I'm grandpa.

"I think I know," answered the wise Ethel. "Long ago people quarreled an awful lot. and in quarreling one word brings on another until a whole lot of words were thrown, on the market." "I thought perhaps the dictionary man made them up," retorted Robert. —Exchange.
