Correct Diet Faults

may mean

go with them—poor teeth, poor
eyesight, catarrh, colds, and a low
resistance to disease.
This matter of nutrition for the
growing child is so important that
It should be shouted from the house
tops! People are so busy they do
not want to be bothered Well,
there is Just one thing about It. It is
the paramount thing to think about,
this precious health of your child.
Every mother should inform her*
pelf about food values and all the
Simple rules of hygiene which have
to do with the health of a young
child. Study a good book on the
care of a child. There are myriads
of them. Consult your family doctor
about the best combinations of foods
for your child and follow his direc
tions.
Up to the time for weaning a
child, about a year old. the diet will
have been carefully directed. Be
fore the teeth are formed, the child
can be given cereals, properly
cooked and strained, so that no in
►digestible herd lumps or ©ven small
particles are left In it.
To cook cereals for so young a
child they should be steamed in a
double boiler for two or three hours.
This should be done, no matter If
your cereal is advertised as a quickly
cooked variety. It is only after long
cooking that the cereal grains are
made soft and nutritious.
After weaning, a child should still
have plenty of milk to drink, but the
amount will be reduced somewhat
to afford an appetite for some of the
solid foods. Cereals with whole milk,
several varieties of strained vege
tables and fruits may be given.
Cream soups and strained vege
table soups are excellent. Lamb,
beef and chicken broths with rice or
tapioca are excellent for the child's
luncheon.
Introduce all the new foods grad
ually and In very smai: amounts.
Follow your doctor’s orders as to
what these foods shall be.
Most children from the time they
are a few weeks old are given orange
and tomato Juice. The child up to
two years should follow this rule.
Youngsters cannot have strong
bones, pure blood and healthy tissues
without painstaking care by the par
ents in tneir proper feeding. Reg
ular hours for food, plenty of food,
and the fresh air and sunshine make
for their perfect health.
Let me emphasize the necessity of
sushtne for every child. That radiant
energy comes not from the visible
rays of the sun but the ultra-violet
rays of short wave length. These
rays are most Intense from 10 a. m.
to 1 p. m and In the Summer
months are more Intense than In the
Winter. Now is the time of year
for the children to be out in the sun
to get its beneficial effects.
There can be no danger from
rickets or other degenerative dis
eases when your child has the
proper food and sunshine and fresh
air. A proper study of this nutri
tion business, and strict adherence
to it, covers the whole problem of
health for the young child.

ing that upon this particular occa
sion the great producer would have
been better pleased If Mary had
flouted his request and remained as
absorbed in young Mr. Cameron as
she had appeared to be but a moment
before.
‘‘What do you suppose Monsieur
Reynard le Fox is up to?" Mary de
manded as soon as we had closed
the door of our own apartment.
"I haven’t the slightest Idea,
Mary," I told her truthfully, as I
put on my hat. and added menda
ciously. "Probably he isn’t ’up to’
anything. It is a most natural thing
for him to add a man to a dinner

’’That's all very true." she re

where she had been adjusting her

of a young gtri. "But I have a feel
ing in my bones that he didn’t trot
out this talkie hound Just to fill in

We were out in the hail, finding
the rest of our party ready to de
part.
"You Just saved your bacon." Mr.
Underwood assured us as we trailed
down the hall to the elevators But
Philip Verltxen's contracted eyebrows
did not entirely smooth out until
Otto drew up the big limousine to
the door of a converted old mansion

colored lights shone through soft
rich hangings, and In front of whose

Pretty nifty feeding they have here,

“Tee. they do eerve you very well

we were inside the door, where a
black-eyed houri. with dusky hair
shrouded beneath the headdress of a
loose garment which enveloped her
from head to foot, took our wraps.
"Probably Lena Goldberg from
Grand street working for her eats.”
Mr. Underwood murmured as Mr.
Veritgen was greeted by the man*
ager of the restaurant. "But it
keens up the illusion.”
“Harry”* his wife warned softly,
shaking her head at him, while Mary
choked back a giggle.

I stirred uncomfortably. This was

Summer Costumes Are in a “Pretty” Mood
Says
(ffliz/Ue.
Dainty Fabrics, Frivolous Bits
oi Lace, Rufiles and
Bows are Used.
A PENCHANT for prettiness
is fashion’s latest whim. It is
betrayed through the affec
tion shown sheer, dainty fabrics
of soft pastel tints, flattering lit
tle ruffles and bows, frivolous
bits of lace and captivating pic
ture hats. The most recent reve
lation of this altogether charming
style mood is the attention ac
corded the “pretty neckline.”
There is a definite feeling of
artistry in these draped necklines
which rely upon softness and in
dividual treatment for their pic
turesque quality. It takes deft
manipulating to coax the folds of
a sneer iaonc mu) a cowi-urapea
collar or one that slips casually
about a law cut neck and falls
into a graceful, full drape over
the bodice in front. This is an exquisite
thought for the festooning of an after
noon dress of chiffon of ninon. The
more tailored crepe frocks for daytime
wear usurp the motif by cleverly cutting
material in such a way that the effect of
a draped bodice is achieved with long
ends cut in one with the blouse, that are
tied in a bow at one aide of the neckline.
The influence of this trend is ap
parent in the use of embroidered batiste,
of flowered organdie, dotted swiss and
dimity frequently trimmed with lace.
Of endearing “prettiness” is the frock
of pale blue dimity sketched at right.
Ecru, embroidered batiste, used to edge
the cap sleeves and develop the bodice,
enhances the charm of the model, as do
also the narrow tucks edging the full,
graduated flounces of the long skirt.
The same materials are repeated in the
complementary hat with its wide, cape
back brim cut narrow across the fore
head.
An example of the fact that sports
costumes have been persuaded to ex
press the same fancy is shown at left.
Here the white silk pique dress is ac
companied by a plaid pique sleeveless
coat in pink and white. The light
weight straw hat, also in pink and white,
is permitted to droop softly about the
face. The last touch of perfect har
mony Is found in the strapped slippers
of white fabric trimmed with pink and
white checked kid. A pretty idea, in
deed!

Advice to
Girls
By NANCY LEE
nEAR NANCT LEE:
We are two girls both 14
years of age. and are in doubt
about many things and would like
to have your advice, please.
1. —Is there any harm in “pet
ting”?
2. —Are we too young to have
dates?
3. —Is there any harm In kissing
a boy your own age when you like
each other?
4-—When a boy asks you to kiss
him when you don't want to, what
should you say? Thanks for the
advice. TWO “NICE” KIDS.
TWO -NICE" KIDS: I can only
* answer all your questions by
telling you that girls who sre really
“nice” do not give such matters s
single thought. They know that
such conduct Is not proper, and that
is the end of It. And fourteen-year
old girls, are mere intereeted in their
lessons and healthy good times than
anything else. That is not being
nice, it Is merely being sensible.

I am a girl of 1*. and am In
love with a boy 19. He la very
Jealous of me. and I am very
Jealous of him. He Is going to
college In January, and do you
think he will continue to like mo
all through college? He says I’m
the only girl on earth he cares
anything for. Should I believe
him? T. O.
O.: If you want my candid
opinion, I think that you are
fax too young to bo thinking of love
and Jealousy. When you are older
you will realise how foolish you are
now. and will laugh at your girlish
love affaira You will not ask then
if you should believe protestations
of affection. You will know thon
that time alone can give you the
correct answer to your question, and
that many vows, while sincerely
meant at the time, have a habit of
being taken lightly as time goes on.
You will be happier, if you Just treat
this boy as a friend until you both
are older and able to know the real
meaning of love.

We are two girls eighteen

two young men thirteen years our
senior. Wo love the men very

We would like to know if there

“Famous Phrases”
By M. H. TILLITT.
**Must is a tcord not used to Princes **
£ £ T1 KUST Is a word not used to"
[wl Princes’* With this ut
^ terance. Queen Elizabeth
voiced her royalty In the face of
death.
It was la her palace, a few days
before her passing In 1€03. that she
uttered that speech. In the clutch
of her last illness, she bad become
weaker and weaker—until she was
no longer able to bold herself up.
But she refused to go to bed. The
daughter of Henry VIII and Anne
Boleyn chose to fight It out with her
malady. And so, having stood erect
as long as her strength permitted,
she at last sank down upon cushions
that had been strewn about her—and
there for many hours she lay.
When the strain on those around
her had become unendurable, the
Secretary of State who had long and
ably served the Queen In this capacity
and as Lord High Treasurer, leaned
over her and urged that she permit
herself to be carried to her sleeping
chamber. "Tour Majesty.” hs said,
“to content the people, you MUST go
to bed.” Upon this, Elizabeth
changed back from a suffering
woman to an autocratic Queen and
replied. “Little man. little man {he
being small in stature), MUST Is
a word not used to Princes.”
The spirit of autocracy that Eliza
beth then showed—under the sha
dow of approaching death—had been
dominant In her life. Though at
times she had made a virtue of
necessity and had bowed to the
wishes of others. That was only a
yielding on the surface. Beneath,
she was always the autocrat. She
would broek no Interference with
her wishes—except when circum
stances compelled or expediency
prompted—and resistance to her
slightest whim Invoked her enmity.
Whoever opposed her wBl was
counted by her as a foe.
’ True, that spirit bad often stood
Elizabeth in good etead. For when,
as a young Tudor Princess, she
mounted the throne she was con
fronted by threatening conditions
that called for autocratic dealing—
if she was to survive. To cope with
many enemies that stood against her
she must resort to exercise of that
spirit—-If she was to win. And thus
her autocratic dealing served Its
turn. But It also prompted her to
much injustice and wrong. While,
to a certain extent, the Queen's
realization of the power of the
governed led her to exercise her
autocratic spirit with certain discre
tion in dealing with many subjects of
public interest, she knew much less
restraint when matters more per
sonal were before her. And so It
was that, In many Instances, she in
flicted great wrongs under the
guidance of her autocracy.
As her sway worked Itself eut,
much * good In the way of helpful
legislation and economic progress Is
to be credited to it.
But she was ever an autocrat so
far as she dared be and she meant
the words she uttered when, reply
ing to her secretary, she said. “Must
Is a word not used to Princes "—even
though, at that very time. Death
was about to use a “MUST" that the
stricken Quean would be compelled
to obey.
Elizabeth, the daughter of
Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn,
was born at Greenwich Palace
on September 7, 1533. She was
made Queen of England on No
vember 17, 1558 and ruled until
her death, on March 24, 1603.
A notable event of her reign
was the destruction of the Span
ish Armada in 1588.

Home-Making
Helps
By ELEANOR ROSS
WITH Summer weather comes
along the stain problem.
Grass stains, fruit stains,
stains in connection with running a
car—and so on. Most of them will
yield to-the right treatment If it is
applied promptly. Old stains are not
always hopeless, but they may re
quire more drastic treatment, pos
sibly two or three treatments, before
they vanish.
Grass artains should be rubbed over
immediately with a little lard or but
ter. Then the fabric washed in soap
and water (provided, of course, that
it's a washable fabric. If there is
some doubt, then the safest course
is to let a commercial cleaner handle
the Job. The fabrics that are not
guaranteed washable these days need
expert treatment In cleansing.)
Grass stains may also be removed
from some fabrics by washing in a
solution of water and ammonia.
Perspiration stains are removed by
promptly soaking in strong salt
water, if the article is a washable
one.
To remove fruit stains—or coffee
and tea stains—from a washable fab
ric. spread the soiled spot tightly
over a bowl or a glass, then pour hot
water over It from a height—as high
as convenient. This may dispel a
fresh stain, if the fabric is washable.
Colored fabrics that are in the doubt
ful class—or a stain of some stand
Ing—will need other treatment.
Some fruit stains are more obsti
nate than others. Peach stains need
a quick treatment with borax before
washing, or rubbing with camphor.
Berry stains should be washed as
quickly as possible, and cold water
treatment is likely to be effective.
Cold water is also the best agent for
egg stains—hot water sets them only
more firmly.

that man and look for him till I
found him.
And when I found him I’d want
to say:
“Take this nickel, Stranger, and
come with me and have your license
taken away from you.”
The little boy was not playing in
the street when he was struck by the
car—he didn’t dart out from behind
the street car and give the dri»er the
scare of his life—he wasn't even cross
I ing the street.
Hs was standing in a safety zone
waiting for a street car and the
driver ran right up into the zone
and knocked the little boy down.
The driver was very sorry — of
course he was.
You can tell that by the way he
handed the little boy a dollar -and
told him to run home and look out
for automobiles after this.
He didn't seem to think that he
ought to run home and look out for
little boys after this—at all.
* As far as we know, hs didn't go to
police headquarters and give himself
up and stand ready to take the pun*
Iahment, for his carelesaneas.
He came within an ace of killing
a light-hearted, happy little boy. and
1 then he Just tooted the horn and
drove away—as gay as you please.
I wonder where he was going In
such a hurry—when he ran up Into

Was he a buslnesa man harryin*

He wasn't a fire chief tearing

What was this man's terrific hurry
anyhow? Who was he. that he
should think he had a right to let
his nerves get the better of him and
send him careening through the pub

If he started to run down Market
street on foot at the top of his speed
—he wouldn't be so very dangerous.
I but he'd be arrested or. anyhow, be

Does the mere fact that he has his

The children, of course, hadn't the ;
slightest idea that their shadows
were playing with them. They
scarcely ever gave their shadows a
thought, even though their shadows
followed them about day in and day I
out. Indeed, despite the fact that
they saw them clearly among the
jacks they paid no attention to them,
Imagining that they belonged there.
For their part the shadows didn’t
mind not being noticed, all but MiJ,
who had hia own reasons for object
ing.
“Pick me up, pick me up?" he
cried at the top of his voice to the
children as soon as he clambered
aboard of a jack. To his disappoint- i

Jack always seemed to be overlooked
while the others were picked up.
The trouble with Master MiJ was
that he was feeling rather sleepy and
instead of racing to the nearest
jacks, as hie comrades did, he
straggled along and had to take one
which was farthest off. Naturally it
was seldom that he had the good for

It didn’t seem to occur to him that
crying “Pick me upl'* was less likely
to have any effect than rubbing the
sleep out of his eyes and hurrying to
the nearest Jack before hia alert com

At length he gave up calling and
tried a different means of attracting
attention. He ba^nced himself upon
the very tip of one of the jack-arms
and waved his handkerchief. This
likewise failed. Then he tried to
drag over one of the fingers of what-1

successful.
Meanwhile the other shadows were

he was neglected as before.
