The story conies from Paris that women have abandoned the veil. They are tired of it. They have taken to cartwheel hats and do not wish to de stroy the outline of the brim by the. folds of a faee covering. There are women over here, howev er, writes a fashion correspondent, recently returned from Paris, wiio are wearing the most curious veil America has seen. It is attached to a (urban; it is ns thick as tlie heaviest coarse net can be woven, and., it is drawn tight around tlie eyes and the top of the nose, leaving tlie neck and lower part of the faee hare. It is the best imitation of a masque that we have had so far, and it is intimated that it was taken from the influenza mask which was worn over tlie lower part of the face. One of our own design ers of eccentricities has produced a genuine influenza mask of dyed lace which is drawn upward over the chin and nose to the back of the head. The French one is more seductive and co quettish. In America we are addicted to veils. We wear them at all seasons, whether or not we know how to adjust them. Tlie reason for their diminished fash ion during the last year is due to the war activities of the great mass or women. First, a veil takes a long time to adjust; it should be done well, or not at all.; and, secondly, it is not a good addition to uniform caps. So the veil dropped out, except among a cer tain • segment of fashionables who would feel ashamed of their naked ness, as they say, if they went with out it. The hurry and flurry of life hns not allowed much time for leisure ly dressing, nnd although the veil was insisted upon by the shops during the Influenza epidemic, the doctors thought it was extremely harmful and injuri ous. They knew what the shops evi dently did not know, that an influenza mask must be washed every three hours in a disinfectant. The ex treme danger in the veil rested in the fact that it was not washed for days at a time, If ever. For those who wear the veil, the mil liners and jewelers have united in in troducing a trifle which has gained much prestige. It is an arrow, an aviator’s wings, a dagger or the fleur de-lis done in jewels. This catches the veil at the extreme upper tilt of the hut in front. It has been the jewel of the war. Women have turned their brooches into these veil pins; they have had other jewelry reset to possess the luxury of the moment, nnd they have bought thpm in real or imitation stones, in order to be in the procession of fash ionables. HAT, COLLARETTE AND MUFF Three-Piece Sets of Fur or Fur and Silk or Velvet Combined Com prise Attractive Outfit. What could be more fascinating than some one of the three-piece sets —hat, collarette and muff—made of fur or fur nnd silk or velvet com bined? They are of varied shapes and in various color combinations, these jaunty little sets. One set consists of turban, with just the top of the crown of kolitfsliy, while the lower part of the turban is swathed with velvet in a charming old blue tone, the velvet terminating in a large loop at the left side toward the back. A large crushed band of the velvet edged at the top with a narrow band of the kolinsky forms the col larette, which also terminates in a WRAP OF BROCADED SATIN Gold-and-yellow brocaded satin is the material in this luxurious evening wrap. The lines are extremely simple. The collar and cuffs are formed of wide bands of sable. large bow at the left side towards the back. The muff Is made rtf the blue velvet and kolinsky. A wide band of the fur forms the center, while the fabric forms the sides, one end of which is drawn through ti band of) the fur. Another set consists of a wrap which after being snugly draped about the shoulders crosses in front and Is tied In the back with a velvet ribbon. The muff would be simple and round, were It not for the velvet bow thut runs through It, with loops of coquet tish twist. The hat is oddly shaped and fits the head closely; at the top are loops of the velvet ribbon. Rosettes o' Velvet. Large puffed rosettes of velvet, which were very popular as trimmings in millinery circles late last fall, are again being seen. On extremely large huts tlds trimming is placed at the trout, while for the smaller shapes It is used at the side or back. Often the rosettes correspond In color with Hie facing of the hat. Another fea ture of the millinery situation lg the increasing call for blue hats. Sev eral shades of blue are being used In making small velvet hats, including eha trie, national, sapphire, Yale and TV'itch. New Necklines in Night Wear. The varied neck line that is domi nant in our frocks, has also gained high vogue in pajamas, nightgowns and negligees. In these garments the square, the deeply oval, the round line are all seen. Sometimes there are no collars, and sometimes there are soft, wide, caplelike collars. Feather Pillows. Feathers for pillows should first be put into pillow slips of strong netting; then this can he put inside the ordi nary ticking slip. This enables the feathers to be easily washed and aired. SASH IS IN THE LIMELIGHT Accessory Is More Sophisticated and Alluring Than Was Its Prede cessor of a Decade Ago. The sash of 1919 Is a more sophis ticated and alluring accessory tliau its predecessor of a decade ago, and it is adjusted to suit the fancy of the wearer or the artistic conception of the designer. Sometimes the bow is 'directly in the back, big and broad, dike the obi of the maid of old Japan. Again the loops will be placed at the iright or the left side, a perky, jaunty arrangement of silk or satin, some times with one instead of two long ends and fringe edged. Then there is itlie broad girdle, usually of the mate rial, deftly maneuvered with ends terminating in tassels. However it is introduced the sash Is a distinctive feature of frocks. Even ithe tailored serge, fashioned severely, iwlth high collar and long, tight sleeves, boasts a sash these days, at jleast one chic model does, the sash i In a wide bow at the normal waistline j being of the material and terminating in the back. Another use for the ma terial sash is on the velvet frock, one example being an old rose velvet gown worn by a young girl in one of the new plays. It is a delightfully simple gown, oue-piU'e, medium width skirt and wide girdle and broad bow of the velvet. A narrow band of kolinsky outlines the round neck and edges the modified kimono sleeves. The sash, on the order of the sweat er accessory, of medium width and finished with balls and tassels of silk, Is still in vogue and it is particularly adapted to the trim little gown of tri colette or the equally supple wool scrim. Suits for Spring. Predictions as to the new spring suits and frocks are heard from all directions. It is reported that they will be slightly longer, slightly nar rower and deeldely brighter in color. The neutral colors, beige and gray, are said to be banished, and in their places are substituted the more lively shades of chaudron. Green also is mentioned as a very possible coming color. TO BEAUTIFY FIGURED STUFF Work Coin Spots and Other Designs Solid in Matching Silk—Adds Richness to Dress. Her frock was nn extremely unso phisticated thing, and yet it had a charm about it that was Instantly ar resting. It must have been due to that “little touch of handwork.” For with out it the frock would have been just a plain, ordinary coin-spotted voile, ltd* with every coin spot worked solid in a matching silk, it attained to posi tive richness. lias it ever occurred to you little lady of the needle, that you can do perfect wonders with printed stuffs? Flower motifs, for Instance, have charming possibilities for treatment with silk. Probably, though, you won’t want to decorate a whole dress; that Ss, at first. But you might begin on n lat. Take a printed silk, for instance, Something with a very simple design; then try “working" that. All-over embroidery of this sort |lv<* the home milliner an Incentive to turning out something really worth while. Fashion Notes. Georgette continues to predominate ns the blouse fabric, but as early spring fashions crowd out the new prevailing modes, look for blouses of voile, dimity and net. Blouses in such striking colors as Peking blue and hen na are n midseason novelty. Sealskin browns and, navy are two other good blouse colors of the moment, the mate rial in all instances being georgette. Now There’s “Foch" Blue. Two new shades launched since the victory of the allies are Foch blue and artillery red. The former is the ex act tint of the French soldier’s uni form, and the red is slightly darker than bright American Beauty. Old Dresses Made Curtains. Blue broadcloth skirts used for or ganization insignia and plaid summer dresses mutilated and reconstructed Into window curtuins are after-war facts reported in n letter from T. M.

People are easily frightene'd when they think something is the matter with their lungs or heart, and well they may be; but few people understand the dangers of dis eased kidneys. These organs have a duty of vital importance to perform, and if they are diseased, there is no telling how or where the symptoms may appear. The kidneys are filters, and when they are healthy they remove the poisons from the blood and purify it. When the kidneya are diseased, the poisons are spread every where, and one of these poisons is urio acid. The uric acid is carried all through the system and deposited in various place*, in the form c f urate salts—in the feet, ankles, wrists and back—often forming bags under the eyes. Sometimes the result ing trouble is called rheuihatism, lumbago, sciatica and backache. Finally, come stone in the bladder, diabetes and Bright's dis ease. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., in recent years, discovered that a certain combina tion of remedies would dissolve uric acid (urate salts) in the system. He found this combination to be harmless, so that he made it up in tablets, of double strength, and called them Anuric Tablets. They * dissolve uric acid in the human system afl hot coffee dissolves sugar. If you have uric acid troubles, don’t delay in taking Ajnuric Tablets, which can be secured in the drug stores. You can write Dr. Pierce, too, and he will tell you w’hat to eat and how to live so that more uric acid will not form in your system. Dr. Pierce will not charge for this advice. a MONEY BACK " without question If Hunt's Salvo falls In the treatment of Bcxema, Tetter, Ringworm, Itoh, eto.
