Mismates! Winifred Black’s Topic Today lb----1 IShe Was So Good Her Husband Divorced Her end Now the “Angel*9 Is Married to a Man Whose First Wife Dubbed Him a “Devil!99 JMTJ HE “Angel" ia married—again 1 And the funny thing ia ahe haa married a man who’s ftnt I wife ihsftted that he was a regular “devil,"—ne more and I no less. The first wife was a nice cozy, litde per son, foad of hone, fond ef bridge, fend of pet lap dogs, fond ef new curtains, new rugs, canaries hi cages, parrots, gold fish, and once aha bought a pair ef peacocks to strut on the lawn of the country home which her regular “devil" gave her for a birthday present And the first wife liked a maid, a butler, a cook, a chauffeur, and a social secretary, and she was always jealous of every other woman in the world. Pretty women with no brains, clever women with no beauty, girls in their teens and women in their thirties, why she was even jealous of aunts and mothers, and grandmothers! And she said the "Regular Devil," thought I more of his men friends and more of his golf ’WlNlFREPJJMCK »nd hi* pole ponies and more ef his racing boat, and more of his Ashing rod, and more of oie funs, yes even more of his padded gloves and his gymnasium suit, than he did of her. And when you really knew her you didn't wonder. ; She realty was a little wearing—there was no use trying te 1 deny it. + So no one vu surprised when the "Regular Devil” was di I forced by his wife. But everybody is so aston ished to hear that he is going to marry the Angel that nobody can get breath enough to speak • word—not yet ! . Now the Angel’s hnsband di vorced her because he said she I eared more for religion, and l>rmyer meetings, and rescue work, and poor sinners and boy scouts, and girls’ clubs, and on • ward and upward associations than she did for him. He said she loved clubs, public luncheons, and dinners where philanthropists talked about the •’slums” better than she loved her home. And as for him. he wasn’t even the last letter in the alpha bet when it came to a boy scout, a Wayward Girl, or a home mis sionary, or something. And now the Angel is married to the “Regular Devi] ” and she’ll go yachting and swimming and dancing, and Monte Carlo ing, and partying, with him. And she will have diamonds, and pearls, and negligees a'.! ewirling with lace, and ball dresses, cut ever so low in the neck—dear me, whatever will the Angel do about those ball dresses? And whisper, do you suppose the Angel, can persuade the “Regular Devil” to go to the boy scouts' meeting, and the girls’ club dinners and will he invite the missionaries home for Sunday night supper? I wonder. Q>#rrt*hl. 1J3#, Nm„r,r fittin tarn**. La*.

Old Romances Inspire New Bridal Gowns Says ; The Bridesmaid Blossoms in a Hand-Painted Creation. Romance threads it* way into the bridal costume this Spring, It is woven in the soft lustrous fabrics of the bride’s gown and spun into the gossamer veil that hides her blush ing beauty. Couturiers have found an excuse in this era of fashion revivals to re peat love stories of the ages in their new creations and to give them a distinctly modern interpretation. There is the gown with the pure Greek sculptural lines that might have been worn by Helen of Troy. The lovely Josephine has inspired others that ex press feminine loveliness of j the Empire days. Tin-types of our own great grand mothers might have sug gested designs for still others. They may be softly draped or wide flounced, but about each one there is cer tain to be the feeling that the old, old story is sweeter when retold. An innovation characteristic of 1930 is the use of off-white shades. Countless nuances of ivory, parchment, cream, and flesh are shown, which relieves the bride of the fear that “dead white will be trying to wear.” Regard less of the skin tint there is sure to be a shade complementary to the complexion. That bridal gown creators have been most attentive to flattering effects is revealed in the veil, which is often dipped in a dye that exactly matches the shade of fabric chosen for the gown. A fashion dream of love is illus trated in the sketch here today. Harmony is achieved in veil, slip pers, and gown, all of a delicate parchment white. The tight bod ice i3 of georgette, while the flounced skirt and train is of heavy satin. It has often been said that "a happy bride.-maid makoS a happy i bride.” Surely the joy of the wed ding party would be assured were the bridesmaid frocked in white organdie imposed over pink, as in the model sketched at right.

Forced affection is useless, and if friendship has to be sought, it is not worth while. Spontaneity Is the keynote of friend ship as it is of affection.

I Home-Making Helps By ELEANOR ROSS Fine Linen for the Spring Bride. £ £ V "V 0E3 she belong to a bridge I 1 club?" "Will she give many formal dinners?” "Are ladles’ luncheons popular In her set?" “Has she the afternoon tea habit?" If you can answer these questions about the Spring bride, then there’s little or no difficulty In selecting the right kind of linen. Linen gifts for the bride are not the standard zed affairs they used to be in the days of hope chests. Linen items then followed statistics, as It were. So many dozens of dinner napkins, so many of luncheon cloths and nap kins, and the trousseau was com plete. But It bore no particular rela tion to the expected entertaining. Result, in a few years many Items had to be replaced, but there were unused pieces that might be idle, and perhaps be bequeathed to posterity. Nowadays linen Is chosen for con temporary use. not for heirlooms. If she likes bridge, it’s perfectly Rife to give her a beautiful bridge set— she won’t have too many of them. If there's likely to be much formal dinner-giving, then tablecloths and napkins In sufficient quantity to wear together. Napkins wear out much quicker than tablecloths. Con sequently, If the tablecloth Is an at tractive one. It’s well to prevent dis appointment by providing adequate napkins to match. Instead of the customary dozen, a dozen and a half or two dozen will be some insurance of wearing out together. The new napkins are not as large as those of an earlier day—also the oblong shape seems more popular than the square. It folds more gracefully, and takes up less room at the table. While colored linens are as fash ionable as when the fad first Invaded napery, there's a slight risk In choos ing extreme colors for the new housekeeper. A beautiful lavender or green may not bleifd with her china or glassware—which may be tinted some other shade. (Even In the most modernistic of homes, the novel colors must blend well or ib* result Is something wild!) White is always safe of course. Still, there are a few other choices which are fairly conventional though not at all hazardous. Warm ivory, a silvery gray, beige, are a few of the pastel tints that are new and are not likely to conflict with the other color harmonies of the table.

Little Red Riding Hood, Aladdin, M.se Muffet and many others. Like the shadows they were perfectly flat, for otherwise they shouldn’t have beea able to fit Inside their books. The ball was to be held Inside a blank book belonging to Knarfs Master Frank. It was an arithmetic home work book, to be exact, but aa Frank was not very fond either of arithmetic or homework, the pages were quite blank. This gave them plenty of room to dance in. But where was the music? That was precisely what Knarf was now seeking. • Who can play music?” he called again. At that moment a cat came scam pering out of the Mother Goose Rhymes. • I can play the fiddle.” said the cat. ’’Oh yes. I've heard ef yeu,” said . he, and he recited.
