Tit Is far too hip for a home in New in these modern times. So tne Zts have turned it into a big apart house It has something of JiS f" ho It it for in thP first pla;o 1 run bv two very delightful, cmt. ed omen. And then the first flo.r ne t .riven over tr the US9 the Fifth Avenue public library, whicl over into x-oruein siil "roorr.s. lunch rooms, etc. . The people in the house are Intensely cresting The bride's apartments wre It over mine mine, bv the way. con tin? of one room anu a bath, at ventv Per. which you must admit ia ml A for this city of stupendous prices. he plavs with Kitty Darden. so per iwivou mav eee her some time. She is 'm(-T and dark, 'with a sort of vtvii ok as if she were very high-sriritel, 4 she has lots of talent. I saw her in a v the other night, and I really thought at she was the star of the evening. It wa; just before the wedding. 1 had tfn htr onlv a few times and I thought 1 ., ren- lovely. The other night I loroi I r latch-key, and just as I rang the bell iU came down the stairs with a beautl I ! his; dog and a lesh, and a fine strap i'lg young soldier walking beside her, I :ik hi arm in a sline. He did not lo ,n r.athtii-. thoutrh. He was a little ar.d rather distinguished-looking and rrrililv good-looking. 1 wisn l nau m-i-i first! But, since I didn't, I am glaa p.. did. for she is a dear. They opened the door for me and .hi ;t thing I knew, they were marr'.e 1 k rniirse. 1 do not mean nteraiy -a t but the near-next. Wlien 1 went in to lunch the next mi;cT tY,a rnnm.ian fairlv buzzing. i I knnw that Xnn,i had eone eff and ! 'rried that d stinsuished young otin-'r 'hout saying a word to anyone aooa. And did 1 know that his mother wis e of the Vandervan's and that r.is her was terribly wealthy and that iE WAS GOING KiUHT ON IN THE 'OVIKS. Tiiat was what seemed to ock everybody except me out of their ots. But I did not shock a Die I ink there must be some kind of shock sorhcr inside of me tnat keeps the ockins things fro-n reaching my con nusneps. Anyhow, I thought It was her nice that she was not going to c up mp movie. ou see. l naa neara r story, and I thought it rather lnte- ing. She used to live in Virginia, an-1 was while thrJre she met the Vernon sties, who persuaded her to go to w York. At that time she was np iring in amateur theatricals, and the sties thought Khe showed great talent, is of course was several years before xracie mam or vernon cascie. ttsyj j way. they say his wife is going 'Oj woild go to New York her taleit s such that she could get an opening . rut with Belasco. And she did. But it was onl a minor part, and about this Une she was ofefered work with one- of t?ia b:g moving picture companies,: and lsho took it. She has teen with them ever since. She has worked hard, and In a tew weeks is to be starred. I do not see why she should have to give up her work just because she has a perfectly levely young lover in real life. lo you? ' . ,.. ' - . t .. ' . I must tell you about some of':, Vie other people In this house. I hope you also have a shock absorber:. For one of them is a Spanish dancer. : She Is one of the most religious women I have ever met, and she has two sons, almost growJK fc-he must have married very young, lor she looks like their older sister, and' she must be very lovely in her dancing garb. 1 have never seen her dance, but I have Hiked to her about her art, and 1 assure you she considers it just as much ART as thought she were painting a picture or carving a statue. Ar other, and one 'of the most interest ing to me, is an artist who has . ner studio on the floor above the moving pic ture actress, "whose apartment, by the WEy, is vacant. I think I'll move up there, and let Penny have mine. Mi:ie is iidiculously cheap for this town of high prices snd Penny would like .to move up here, I think. But. to toAt r.ue. The artist does not l'.-ok particularly artistic. She is gat m.l dear and fnnr-y, and always terribly bus, for- she 1 as so many orders. Sh mir ! :ed utj iit-tior decorator, and the -u;i a icga!ar ' husi'iess, with several preti v young artistfc Working with them. My artist they cal. Molly Brown, and it suitj her, een though her figure In no longer svelte and her complexion is -iks a peoric rathei than a damask rose,. 1 l.ave quit- fallen in love with her and nsr work Maybe it is because she is different from what artists are suppoi? I to be. She is certainly some wo.kor. And ner Hade is tremendous. She paints the loveliest things you eve-.-iia not srt. )h. I ntsy, I wish you could. I wish you con! a . come up iiere and see, witn ycti-- cur, eyes how interesting it all ts. J Ki t. . the things I write you do not sound at all thrilly. But there is some tning about New York that is Big. It Is satisfy tr.g, in come way. The people -a.il seom to work. It is in the air. It they don't do anything else, they make work of their play. But they work at fometmng. There is a newspaper woman on the top floor who has nerves. Penny says she doesn't wonder. Penny says tht any woman who stays In the newspaper j game l.mg enough Is bound to nave ! nerves. That is the reason she does not i Intend to stay In it any longer than Just. :on& enough to make some money. She says she is going to be a free lance, i whatever that Is. I think It means' you j sit in your room "and write stories for! magazines and paper your walls . with j rejected slips. At least I judge so from , what Penny tells m. But, anyhow she I wants to be one, so I am going to let her have my room, and I am going up , stairs and Dad will have to send me some more money. Poor Dad! 1 started to tell you about tne news-1 paper woman. Her job is at a bigliotel, as reporter. T do not know whether j oi'e could call her a newspaper reporter or a hotel reporter. She meets the rtople who come to the hotel for' news. is a sort of social secretary f the hotel,' and gets together all the hotel news for the different papers. She says it is worse than being a cub reporter on any paper in the world. ' I like her Immensely. She has worlced on the Sun and has done some clever ar tides , for some of the syndicates up tit-re.-, ' ;- ' - t 1 meant to tell you some really in teresting news, but time is up, dear Pac. Be good and write me a long letter from J Pensacola, for I am terribly homesick. i Yours, POLLY. -1 sifigiiiniiiisgi S! .BRINGING SUMMER X INTO THE HOME . sag. j ".Not all of 'us can have summer homes but most of us can achieve ' summery iiomes" frc'n our al-year-round domi ciles.. ' " ; ; ' . Putting the house into its hot-weathor garb .is almost as good as a vacatibn for the family and for tae housewife who setii so tired of her "everlasting things' as a result of long familiarity ami much dusting-. the change is a real cental tonic Right after howse cleaning is the ti: to do house summering. The principle of the whole process is the desire to give the house the air of lightness, coolness, cleanliness and fresh color. The rirst step is to get rid of all useless furniture and ornaments.. The summer l ouse doesn t need any ornaments except bowls and baskets for fresh flowers. Put everything else away' and they'll look better in the autumn. One effective way 10 Eunimer the house is to put all the furniture into slip-covers of bright color ed chintz or cretonne, or plain linen.' Heavy rugs should be rolled in tar pa per and stored In the attic. Bare floors, btained or painted and covered with rag and matting rugs are cool and easily cared for. Heavy curtains and drap eries may give . place to cretaomie and straight scrim or cneese cloth curtains, liven the pictures can come down. Bare walls are cool and restful looking. As far as ". possible substitute wicker " and srass furnlturef or wood or upholstered pieces. Plain inexpensive porch chairs, with gay cushions are fine tor the sum mer . living room. . Some housewive in dulge in a special summer dining room set of plain wood tables and chairs, which are painted In white or pale green and stenciled in the manner of the fash ionable and epensive cottage furniture-.: Painted dining tables of this sort are splendid for sumrrer meals served ' wiih luncheon sets and table runners and save immensely : on labor and laundry bills. The painting can be done at home -.t small cost. Flowers and plants used freely about fhe rooms are an actual necessity in keeping the summery effect. Potted ferns, hydrangeas, and pots of Ivy are coolj and lovely to look at, and clear glass bowls of fresh flowers repay in cool ness and beauty more than their co.t in money. And bowis of gold fish are al rr ost as cheerful and cool as flowers themselves. -- 00 c m Perfect Vision Is E ssen tial You want perfect eyeglass service and the one way you can al ways be sure of getting it is to entrust your eyes to a firm whose goods and methods have been proven perfect by a long and reliable record. :.: :y ...v:- Perfection in designing and grinding Kryptok. glases the invisible bifocals has been attained by us as the result of just such a record.

AN INTERESTING ADITORIAL Great bundles of flax straw are soaked in water for about ten days, ' or are exposed to the elements spread out in meadows for several months. Bacterial fermentation takes place and loosens the fibres from which linen ia made, from the woody substance whloh surrounds them. Then after this "retting,, as it is called, the straws are dried and run through rolers which crush the woody matter and make possible the beating away of all but 'the desired fibres. They are 30. to 36 inches long," and silvery in appearance. This is known as "undressed" -flax. It goes to mills then, and there the fibres are split until they are of the desired fineness,. Tedious assorting and bunching is done. Then loose, uneven ends are cut. and bunches are placed . with their ends slightly overlapping. A machine carries them into rope form, twisting htem all together like loose twine,, and drawing the rope out longer and finer all the v time. Eventually after it becomes twisted enough -and fine enough it is "yarn,' 'from which goods are made. An interesting pro ces isn't it? Look at your table cloth with new. Interest tonight and visualize these processes, the peasants, the great silver rope and all.
