Preserving the Soft Beauty of Your Permanent or Marcel _ --— « — - — - . - ■- - - . — —:-— WA VE IS VERY OFTEN RUINED DURING SLEEP Nets or Caps Worn Over Arranged Coiffure at Night Will, Says Miss Huddleston, Keep It Trim and Prolong Its Natural Appearance. By JOSEPHINE HUDDLESTON T*E business of getting a good looking wave, whether it is a permanent or a marcel, has ceased to be a problem, but the mat ter of keeping that wave looking it’s best still brings furrows to many feminine brows. ftowever, to get a good wave, and to pre serve it in all it’s sleek naturalness are two quite different things. Turning and tossing in bed during sleep spells ruin to the most beautiful wave unless precautions are taken tw keep the hair from becoming mussed. To fill this need, some very clever little caps for this purpose have been placed on the market These sleeping caps for preserving the beauty of the wave are somewhat on the principle of the hair net, in that they spread out very wide, then shrink back to fit the head after they are on. It takes no time at all to arrange the hair, slip the cap on and tie it, and the result next JOSEPHINE morning is exceedingly satisfying. If a hair V wi mvm rcrr^M net *s use<* be sure it is pinned securely. A small | IvdN safety pin is excellent for pinning together the „ . ... surplus net.

Then slip the °ut and tuck up any loose ends, being careful not to tuck them under the cap too roughly or the wave will be disarranged. .., }’ou a,rc wpariug the net cap, the two little ribbons that are attached at the sides of the cap are brought around to the back of the head and tied securely so that the cap won’t become loose during •n x- anu.shp out of place. If you are wearing a hair net, you will find that it is much to large for your head. However, draw the net snugly over the hair, being careful that you don’t disarrange the waves, and, using small hairpins, pin the net to the front of the hair, then fold over the surplus net and pin together with a small safety pin. JL pon removing the cap the hair will be as trim and neat as though you had just left the hands of your pet hairdresser. All you need do to run the comb through the hair and gently push the waves up with the fingers to give them that soft, natural appearance.

United States Senator from New York. Former Commissioner of Health, Neto York City. INSTINCTIVELY the new mother knows how to feed her baby. She offers the breast and the baby is eager to take it. The youngster thrives and all is well. But after a number of months there must be a change of program. Now it isn’t so easy to know what to do. A healthy mother is very likely to supply a sufficient quantity of good milk to nourish the bahy fully for about six months. If all goes well this is entirely satisfactory to everybody concerned. Under ordinary circumstances it is a mistake to depend exclusively on the breast after six months. In the Orient it is not uncommon for the mother to give the breast for another year, but a North American mother would not do this because it would be harmful to the child and mother. There is no hard or fast rule as to when weaning or partial wean ing should begin. It depends on the mother. It depends on the child. The gain in weight of a baby for the first five or six months is much more rapid than it is later. However, we expect a steady gain. II a couple oi wews pass wun uo^ gain In weight something Is wrong. After the age of six months it is very probable that something about the quality or quantity of the moth er's milk Is wrong. It must be understood, of course, that the baby is weighed regularly and a record kept. The scales are as important in bringing up a baby as the safety-valve and steam gauge are in operating an engine. We will suppose the baby is six months old and stops gaining weight. In that event what else may be expected? There will be dlcontent after feeding. The baby may not be willing to drop the breast. It is not ••atisfied with its m^a! It may cry and cry and cry. The poor thing is hungry. There are few mothers who are able to satisfy the chtld longer, and it is unwise to depend on the breast exclusively. As regards this, how ever. it Is wise to consult the family The Stars Say— For Friday, Nov. 9. By GENEVIEVE KEMBLE. Conflicting situations and conditions generally are fore seen from the mutations of the ruling planets on this day While the luminaries and the powerful Saturn are wielding friendly influ ence for Industry, stability, advance ment and growth, the turbulent and tempestuous Mars hints of violent disruptions and‘headlong havoc to smooth running conditions, unless a firm check be held'upon impetuosity and ill temper.

There't hut the twinkling of a •tar between a man of peace and war.—Butler. doctor. He knows all the details and his advice Is sure to be good. Many mothers begin giving one bottle of prepared food every day" long before they fully wean the in* fant. This ts a good plan because it accustoms the baby to the bottle before the time comes when it must be depended on entirely. If this plan has not been followed and the mother faces the necessity of an immediate weaning, there tnay be a lot of trouble. The baby won’t like the cow's milk or the formula. It tastes different from mother’s milk. The result Is the child may refuse the bottle. When the practice Is followed of giving a bottle a day. It will not be difficult to turn to the bottle for all the nourishment. Eventually, of course, this must be done. Ill health on the part of the moth er. failure of the baby to take on weight, and. particularly the illness of the Infant, are signals, each one Indicating the necessity of weaning. They are signs not to be disregarded It takes three or four weeks to complete the weaning process. Dur ing this time and for quite a period afterward there must he great care In the preparation of the feedings. LA nswers to Health Queries1 H. A.

Although the women of cmie enjoy. comparatively, more freedom than those of any other South American country, their lives would not be particularly en joyable to the women of the United States or Elngland. To begin with, until a woman Is married. In Chile, she may have no social relations with the opposite sex.

This custom is followed. I think, mainly in deference to a church regulation, which requires the women to wear this form of headdress in places of worship. A hat without the manto is not considered sufficient covering. I was referring, of course, to the white women, the women of the upper classes, in the above para graphs. The Indian and native women are not kept in such seclu sion. Indeed, they do most of the work. And their attire, in keeping with their general life, is not nearly so modest.

True, there Is no actual harm In a kiss, but It is always better to keep a check on your emotions. Dear annie laurie: I have been going with a boy for four months. In that time I learned to love him dearly. It seems that I can't live without him. I am desperately In love with him. He told me that he loves me. but his mother does not care for me. I only spoke to his mother once, and It seems as though she has drawn a wrong conclusion about me.

HEARTBROKEN: There Is only one thing you can do. my dear, and that is prove to the young man's mother how wrong she Is In her esti mate of you.

BEAU BRUM MEL. 11KAU BRUM MEL: It wouldn’t do for the whole world to go modern at the same Instant, iktu. And perhaps your people don't agree with the extreme of things, as so many young people do nowadays. If you must be terribly modern, be it on the outside, but in your home try to conform to the standards of your father and mother. Some of these standards will carry you far. and you will do well to adopt some of them. There comes a time In the life of every one of us when we feel exactly a* you do. but there's only one thing to do and that Is—get over 't. You'll laugh at yourself some day for feeling as you do. Your parents give you a good home and care for you as no stranger ever would or could. So try and be a bit more contented and don’t arme. Perhaps that’s where your trouble lies. Love’s Awakening Steadfast Woman. j —— -—By Adele Garrison— Katherine Effectively Spike$ Samuel llrixton's Effort to Confer Alone uith Lillian. | SPEEDILY found that In old‘ J wives’, parlance I "had my work cut out for me" to keep Samuel Brixton from staging the private Interview with Lillian which he had come so far to obtain. Whether or not his half-brother was coaching him. I could not determine, but both he and Charles Owen were adroit enough to keep themselves very much in the background, leav ing the conversational field to Helen Brixton and Lillian The two old friends were so busy in catching up with the years during which they had not seen each other, that they paid only perfunctorily courteous attention to the rest of us. and I silently raged as I fancied I saw in Charles Owen's eyes a calculating appraisal of the effect of this re union upon Lillian's aversion to Samuel Brixton. Without obtruding myself upon the reunited friends I kept close to Lillian after dinner when we gath ered around the living-room fire, which the cool Autumn evening made most grateful. And I suddenly sat i up mentally and physically when Samuel Brixton looked over at his wife and spoke with ostentatious but genuinely affectionate solicitude, “T hate to butt in. Helen, but you know how terribly tired you were j today. I think you ought to go to bed." Lillian rose instantly. “How thoughtless I have been!*’ she said. “Come. Helen, I’ll carry you off and tuck you in at otr e." ‘‘Does that mean you'll talk till morning?” Samuel Brixton demanded with heavy Jocosity. "Because if it does. I shall have to stand outside the door and put a time limit upon the gab festT* "No. I really won't let her talk any more tonight.” Lillian promised, as she slipped her arm through Helen Brlxton’s. and. waiting only for her guest's apologetic good-night to the rest of us. walked with her to the door. I Joined her there, stress ing my role as hostess, and was Just j In tim« to hear a low voiced query from Samuol Brixton who had gal lantly escorted both women to the hall. “Are you too tired to go over that little matter with me tonight after Helen gets to sleep? You know what it is. dear.” He turned to his wife. "Oh! yes.** she fluttered, “and I do hope. Lillian, you will realise how in earnest Sam Is about it." ’ J acquitted her of anything save an earnest desire for her husband’s atonement to Lillian and her young daughter for his old defrauding of Marlon’s father. Hut I was furious at the smug smile of satisfaction curving Sam Rrixton’a lips as Lillian turned softened eyes upon her old friend's eager face and answered tenderly: "At least I’ll listen patiently to what he has to tell me. for your sake. Helen." Over her shoulder 1 signaled Katherine with an almost imper ceptibie quirk of my eyebrows. The little nurse waited a second or two. then rose and walked across to us while I detained Mrs. Brixton with a housewifely query as to her break-! fast preferences. Then 1 spoke to Katherine with a casual air. “I’m glad you’re here, Katrina., You’ll be able to lay down the law to Lillian as I wouldn’t dare to. not1 having your authoritative office.” "I'm a nurse, you know," Kather ine told the Brixtons smilingly, "and I’m sure that behind my hack they call me Mrs Simon Legree. What is Lillian plotting now. Madge?" ’Oh! nothing very terrible." I laughed, "only I thought I heard a tentative arrangement for her com ing hack downstairs and talking over some business matter-” ‘Noth-ing-do-ing!’’ Katherine re torted. and her smile did not rob her verdict of its authoritative ring. ”1 ought to have sent you to bed an hour ago. Lillian, hut I always try to Indulge the children when com pany comes. Now go upstairs, like a good little girl, and tomorrow—will be another day." That Lillian was secretly relieved at Katherine’s dictum as she would have been at anything which post poned the Interview with Samuel Brixton. I knew. But she put up a creditable pretense of apologetic dis appointment. wrinkling her nose at Katherine and emphatically saying "Needs must-” with a shrug fin ishing the quotation. And It was worth all the discomfort of the eve ning to catch the lowering look in the eyes of Charles Owen as he turned them blackly upon me for the merest fraction of a second. From across the room Mary Harri son’s voice sounded plaintively: “M:tst we go to bed. too. Auntie Madge?" (Continued Tomorrow.) OwrlrM. 1?;*.

But hardly had Knarf taken the first step whoa from out of the furze swam Mr. Bream, the sunflsh. "This is my property/* cried he, quite excitedly. "It is! It Is!" He spoke as If he expected to he contradicted. But that was because he had never met the reflections be fore and mistook them for land boys whose mischievous ways he had learned to dread. "If this is your property/* replied Flor, speaking for all, “we shall be glad to go. But we can't Imagine what you can do with so much sand when you swim in the water.’* At first Mr. Bream was inclined to be angry and his eyes snapped. But when he saw that the water children were not trying to make sport of htin. he smiled a sunflsh smile, and said: "I need the eand for my nest. 1 am going to build it in this very spot.” Now it little land children ha 1 heard this, they would have laughed until they cried, for who ever heard of a fish building a nest. But though “This Is My Property !M the water Images were Just as sur prised, they merely remarked: "W® won't disturb you. Mr. Bream.” sn.l prepared to go. "Wait a moment," exclaimed Mr. Bream.

Selecting a spot in the sand where the sunbeams glistened the bright est. the sunfish brushed it with strong sweeps of his tail. Then, with ills tail still touching the sand, he circled round and round until he made a little hollow. It was Just the size of a marble hole. He stopped now and swimming over It, exmm-ned his work with a critical eye. "Just right.” he said at length. "No one could want a better.” The reflections looked at It too. but were careful not to tread on it. “Ah,’* exclaimed Yam. “it is Just large enough for one little sunfish.” “One little sunfish.” cried Mr. Bream in amazement. “Why there's room for a hundred!’* And that was the truth though they could scarcely believe it. "Will each one have a ns.m*T* asked Knarf innocently.
