Slipper d and Wrappered Middle-Age a Thing of the Past
“STEPPING” PARENTS OUTPACE YOUNGSTERS Twenty Years Ago Folks of Forty Sought the Old Easy Chair, but Today—Ah!—Snappy Clothes, FJewels and Parties Are in Order, By WINIFRED BLACK R wife looks young—you look old. rour wife is full of vitality—you look ready to drag urself to the grave. are you going to do about it?" Why, buy somebody’s patent pills, of course—but isn't it queer—the advertisements are turning right around in their tracks. We used to read about pale, tired wives and vigor ous husbands and the pills were all for the wives, but now husband is stepping right along trying to keep up with his wife because if he doesn’t his wife will get ahead of Him—and that’s amusing, isn’t it? You notice it everywhere, the advertising to men—how to keep young, snappy clothes for the middle-aged, exercises to keep elderly men in good trim—why twenty years ago a man of forty gave up the game. He bought some loose shoes, a couple of decent business suits, a pair of hats and let the youngsters wear the snappy clothes. He let them do the dancing, too, the swim ming and the high diving—while he sat back and told what a wonder he’d been in his young days. And as for women, he settled down to Mary and the girls and never even dreamed of making conquests—the girls wouldn’t look at him anyhow and he pretended that he didn’t want to look at the girls. And Mary—oh, when Mary was about thirty-seven or eight she had half a dozen wrappers, a Mother Hubbard or so, one or two dinner dresses, and something to go to market in and that was that. She spent all the dress money on the girls—what, Mary in a sport suit and rolled socks—why the very idea. Now, Mary is the sportiest of the sports—she wears rolled socks, bobs her hair and she has costume jewelry and monogramed note paper. You try to date Mary for a luncheon and you’ll have to begin a week ahead. Mary is enjoying life whether her daughters are enjoying it or not, and the girls are just the least little teeny bit jealous of Mary. Mary has friends and attentive cavaliers, and John really has to wear snappy clothes and take peppy exercises or he’ll never in the world keep up anywhere near to Mary. I wonder just how much they both really enjoy the game. Wouldn’t it be kind of a relief to John if Mary would settle down and let the girls do the "stepping?’’ And wouldn’t Mary be rather comfortable if John would sink back into a good sensible middle-age and play whist with his cronies and let her dabble around in the garden, feed the canary, do a little embroidery and talk a bit of iijipril -* on the shady porch?

I TRIED hard to keep my disap-’ polntment at Harry Underwood's words from showing in my face. But I knew I had failed when he whispered warnlngly: “Buck up. gin. Remember you and I are simply discussing repairs to this seat.” He moved between me and the veranda as he murmured the words and held out his hand. “Why don’t you get in and test the cushion?" he said in tpnes which easily could have been heard by any one on the veranda. I stepped into the seat and me chanically went through the motions of testing the comfort of the seat which he had pretended to have re paired in order to placate the vanity of Mother Graham.

TWO extremely comfortable and smart beacb wraps have appeared to brighten a season which has been excep tionally attentive to swimming togs and their accessories. They axe pictured above; the terrycloth raglan coat seen to the left and the most effective and picturesque Moroccan “Burqouse” seen to the right. The former is described In regulation top-coat style—very swagger and smart. Its lowly towling material has been com pletely transformed into a smart fabric by the application of a brilliant print on the white back ground. Further smartness is achieved through the red oil cloth piping which occurs at belted back, cuffs and outer edges. When accompanied by a red rubber beach bag, a brilliant silk turban and red lacing in white beach slippers, the costume would be inordinately trim. The Moroccan “Bernouse” has been received with great acclaim by ardent bathers and beach en thusiasts because there is such comfort in its voluminous folds. It is made In a beautiful, creamy terrycloth. Its attached hood yields perfect protection against the penetration of the sun’s rays. Some prefer the comfort of the unlined material to a brilliant rubberized lining, but there are many models that gain attrac tiveness through brilliant stripes used for garment facing. Pay Carefyl Attention to Baby’s Skao By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D. United States Senator from New York, Former Commissioner of Health, Sew York City. IT is important to take good care of the baby’s skin. What may seem to be a trifling neglect may cause the little thing a lot of needless suffering. The skin is much more important to the wel fare of the human being than most of us realize. We appreciate that it serves as a protective cov ering for the vital structures lying beneath it Gut it does far more than to protect these struc tures from injury. In the great modern buildings erected today the temperature of the rooms is controlled by clever instruments called “thermostats.” You may “set” one of these devices as you set a clock. The indicator may be placed at 75 degrees in one room and 60 degrees in an adjoining room. So perfect is the control that the steam is shut off or turned on, as required to maintain the desired temperature. The importance and convenience of it lie in the fact that the control is automatic. Ingenious as this mechanical system is, it does not compare with the heat regulation system of the animal body. Among its purposes, the skin was designed by the Great Creator to control the temperature Ui VU« 1 This Important function, beat regulation, is made possible by the extensive network of blood vessels, as well as by the sweat glands of the skin. There are many tiny nerves to operate the blood vessels, causing their opening or closing, supplying more blood, or less blood, aa the re quirements demand. The nerves which have this inter esting control over the circulation of the blood are called "vaso-motor” nerves. There are "vasodilators” and ■*vaao-constrictor■.,• Some day I shall attempt to describe these to you. But you have been told enough to understand how control of the blood supply of the skin is used to regulate the temperature of the body. Tou know how the peoples of tropical lands keep their drinking water In porous Jars. The vessel "sweats.” as the saying la. The evaporation of this moisture chills the surface and keeps the water cool. We have sweat glands to provide moisture on hot days. Its evapora tion lowers the temperature of the body's surface. That helps to keep us cool The sweat glands. In their turn, are controlled by special nerves. These direct gland action aa the other nerves I mentioned control blood supply. The skin cannot function perfectly unless It is clean and carefully groomed. I use the word "carefully" on purpose. The skin of a baby is very, very tender. It is easily irri tated and inflamed. Unless all the cleansing processes are carefully done the baby suffers real pain. The soap must be well chosen. Strong. Irritating soaps are out of place in washing a baby. Indeed. ►they are out or place In washing any tender skin. Take great pains In keeping the baby's akin In good condition. Then. If the youngster could Ulk. he would call you blessed.

ONE of the moat curious love4 affairs In ths history of ths great, existed in recent years and is probably fresh in ths memory of many. It Involved Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria and the beautiful Katrina Schratt who was at one time an actress in tbs Burg theatre. Here was one of the oddest alli ances of all tims, with many amaz ing angles and facets. In his youth Francis Joseph earned a reputation well in keeping with that of the hard fighting, fast living House of Hapsburg. Accord ing to the stories handed down. Katie Schratt had many predeces sors in the heart of the emperor. Two of the most important were Frauieln Roll and a little peasant girl, who was almost responsible for a complete disruption In the empire. As a result of the affair with the peasant lass, the Empress Elizabeth gathered her menage and hied her to Madiera from whence she re turned only after the Emperor pleaded repentance. Then the lovely Katrina Schratt came tnto his life—and never left. For thirty years she was a power behind the throne of Austria. But she was a wise and charming person and it was said that she never forced any undue demands from the Emperor. It has also been intimated that Frau Schratt’e position in the court of Austria came at the behest of ►Empress Elisabeth. The story was that the queen having a complete distaste for public life. Instituted Katie Schratt in the important posi tion where the would be substan tially the queen's proxy, a position holding dangerous possibilities, which as it has been stated, were never exercised by Frau Schratt Not that the Emperor’s mistress i was not an able and keen-minded woman—she was. But Katie kept herself aloof from politics and court Intrigues and proved to be a perfect person in what was for her, a perfect position. One of the other strange angles was that Katie was married and for years openly was on good terms with her husband. Baron Kisch. A world-wide furore was raised some years after the tragic death of Empreae Elisabeth, when Frau Schratt had her marriage nullified by the Pope. “Ha. ha. Katie Schratt is going to marry the Emperor of Austria.’’ it was rumored about. But the gossips were wrong for Franz Joseph went to his end in November. 1919. with out taking Katie as his morganatic wife But his devotion to the actress was made manifest on many occas sions and Frau Schratt hardly could have had cause to complain at her treatment at the hands of ths monarch. Katie’s ending Is obscured In sev eral conflicting dispatchee. One said that she died In 1918 while another.! in 1922, reported she was planning to( rsturn to the stage. i Copyright. lilt.

BISCH Eminent Pagehologiet. IN this world of ours we deal so largely with machines and statistics and we think so much in terms of impersonal efficiency that our j own natures are likely to be influenced thereby, causing us grad ually to lose sight of the human equation. We shall continue to demand bigger and bet- I ter machines, of course, because each new me chanical development spells, directly or indirect ly, certain advantages to the individual’s capac ity for living. Science also will keep on solving the mysteries of nature and will harness the re sults to the will of man. Therefore men and women must be careful lest the gigantic discoveries and inventions they keep on making will not eventually redound to their own undoing rather than to their benefit What a sorry world this would, indeed, be if w« all became as hard, as methodical, as unbend ing, as relentless as the inanimate Robots our own genius has devised. Suppose this machine age of ours did really develop 100 per cent efficiency in every detail. If the spirit the soul, or whatever you choose to call that inner something that distinguishes qr LOUIS E. BISCH humans from the rest of the animal kingdom, were lost—well, what would really be the use of living? No one can predict that such a state of affairs will ever come about. The world has a way of righting itself and, In a measure, of cor rccuai somenow iis own mistakes. ' Still, we would do well to stress the emotional aide of life even now. for many of us are far too intellectu ally m&chlne-like for our own good. Therefore practice kindness all you can. Never lose the opportunity of be ing patient and forgiving to some one who annoys or injures you. Don’t let the competitive struggle make you so self-seeking and selfish that you Ignore the heart that beats In every breast Try sometimes to understand how it feels to get the worst of it Be careful lest continued success intoxicates you to the point of be coming anaesthetic to the rights and aspirations of the humble and strug gling. Always take the time to think out carefully what effect your decisions, actions and relationships—whether in business or society—will have upon those over whom you wield power and influence. And. besides, keep your own emo tions alive and flu^d. Don't try to atifle them and ahut them away. Get over the notion that to ex hibit feeling, such as compassion and tenderness, is a sign of weakness. The strongest men have been known to weep. You don't want to become an iron man or woman anyway. Nothing is to be gained of genuine personal value in imitating ma chines. In many ways your own body and mind constitute a machine. But it is a machine of the very highest order—a living machine— and that makes all the difference in ; the world. CtawUbt. IMS.

KITCHENS are atlll vary much< In evidence and I b o u i h shrunken In size, they have Increased In importance. Health ex perts have kept the air stirring with the subject of ventilation until all self-respecting kitchens have electric fans, window ventilators and pipes for the gas stoves, also hoods over the rangrs. Model houses show hard finished walls painted, tiled or wainscoted, a tiled or linoleum floor, painted fur niture. everything in fact that can be washed down in order to keep it sanitary. Terribly discouraging to mice and the army of bug invaders, but lovely to keep house in. There ia a newcomer in kitchen cabinets called the pantriette. The front of it resembles a soda foun tain. the drawers have glass nozzles, with porcelain handles to release the contents of the drawer like contain ers No spilling or broken, leaky packages. All that Is necessary is to slip bowl or cup underneath and “draw" what is wanted. The con tainers are easily cleaned and non rustabie The cabinets are whits or can be finished to match the color scheme of the room. There is a diversity of opinion on the merits of the electric stoves of various kinds. There is a new one. however, recently shown which is made to set on a metal topped table.

Bleaching Tan and Freckles By JOSEPHINE HUDDLESTON NOW that you ars beginning to' regret your careless tossing aside of hats during tbs bright Summer months. I'll tell you how to remove the tan and freckles ac e u m u lated by your rash disre gard of the glaring sun. Freckles and tan are eaused by exposure to sunlight and not to the sun’s heat as is com monly thought. They ars not a burning of the skin, but an ir* Josephine Huddleston fitat!?n c*UBe<* ^ by the chemi cally active rays of the sun. This chemical activity of the sun pro duces over-stimulation of the pig ment. or coloring matter, in the cells of the skin. Because of this fact I keep Insist. lng that you wear hats with brims during the brightest part of the day and that you put a protective layer of grease paint, vanishing cream or nourishing cream over your skin before exposing it to the glare when the sun is bright. Any one of those simple expedients will break the strength of the sun light before It reaches the skin and thus prevent freckles and tan. The only difference between freckles and tan is that the pigment or coloring matter is unevenly distributed in the cells of the skin when one freckles, and evenly divided when one tans. "Sunburn, where one turns fiery red and then peels. Is another matter and not to be confused with freckling and tanning. Equal parts of lemon Juice and peroxide Is good to bleach out freckles and tan; best results from this remedy are had by applying this lotion to the skin directly when coming in from exposure to the sun light. If. after using It several times each day for three or four days, the skin shows a tendency to dry out. stop using the lotion. This drying out of ths skin, however, usually can be avoided by the nightly appli cation of a light nourishing cream which is allowed to remain on the skin until morning. A splendid lotion which can be used instead of peroxide and lemon Juice is made by adding two ounces of rose water and two ounces of glycerin to four ounces of lactic acid. Use the preparation several times each day. Helpful Hints Choose a good drying day and. having got the tub full of rain water, cold, put your MacKlntosh in to thla Then spread it out flat on the kitchen table, and. with a soft brush and some good soap, go over it thor oughly If It is not then clean, take fresh water and do it again, rinsing it well in several waters, so as to get all the soap out of it You must on no account try to wring it: Just put it on a coat hanger and let it drip and stay out till it is dry If thers are any greasy marks on It. they are best taken out before wash ing by a little benzine.
