GROWING OLD & 4 -, Clever Missives to Be Contrived With the Aid of Taper Doitics and Trin- tets. NDIVIDUALITY In entertaining Is the slogan of tho day, and a hostess who cannot lay claim to u originality for her parties, dln- .ners and teoa Is dismissed by her un grateful guests with rather curt criti cism as "slow." The valentine party must Inevitably be an affair of tho heart, but Cupid should be given an up to date role to perform In the sen timental drama. At a valentine party this fourteenth evening of February ho Is to assume the role of aviator and will "blow In" to the company aboard an airship decked In all the trappings of his dan serous art hearts, arrows and wed ding slippers held to the craft with bright red ribbons. Tho airship to be used Is one of tho handsome big ma- making of these missives, but she must i-iiiiicii wui iro uesigncu as toys ror the little children of the rich. Dy tho Ingenious construction of pulley strings aiiacneu to the gnsntlnn lunk under this particular nlrshlp tho guests by pulling the ribbons will send down a shower of Cupid favors. As this hostess Is familiar with tho fnds and foibles of her guests tho sup per menu cards will be In Valentino form suitable to each of them. It Is not necessary for a hostess to spend much money or tlmo on the havo clover original Ideas. Tho home mado vulentlne requires only tho fol lowing materials: Some whlto cards, lace paper heart shaped dottles, one package of red sticker hearts, whlto sticker hearts and a packago of Cu pids. In addition to these she will need whatever little toy objects sho, decides upon using for her valentine motif. These may bo purchased at shops where a specialty Is madw of holiday goods.

History of the y- Common Pin The common, ordinary garden variety of pin has been quaintly and pointedly termed "tho emblem of attachment," and it Is a wonder to think that women ever lived without these attachments, for there Is hardly an hour of tho day when we do not havo the need of pins. They hold many of our hats together, and a woman has even been known to keep an obstreperous shoe button In place with their aid. The ordinary pin was first Invented and brought Into uso about the beginning of the sixteenth century, though there were pins mnde of'metal In their present form as early as 1641, and In that year an English statute wan passed called "an act for the true making of pynnes," which lim ited their cost not' to exceed 6 shillings and"! 'pence a thousand. ' Previous to this pins Were made of boxwood, bone and silver, but only the rich, of course, could afford to buy these. Thd poorer classes having to use1 pins made them ot common wood, like, our skewers. 'When pins first came Into use thoy wero a favorite New Year's gift. Men presentod them to the girls of their ac quaintance much as they do flowers In these days, or husbands gave their wire an equivalent In money, which wi called "pin' money," an expression which later on grew to be known as the amount of money which a husband laid aside for his wife for her private ex penses. ' OUR FRIEND THE MIRROR, girl's mirror Is a wlso and candid friend .If she studies It with an honest desire to remedy what she finds amiss. Dull eyes and a rough sallow skin nre nature,'! plea for more fresh air and ex ercise, and no cosmetics can take the place of these, but a careful survey of herself will show her many small ways In which the "general effect" of her appearance may be Improved. It would be well if women talked occasionally before a looking glass, for this would cure 'them of many mannerisms which annoy their friends. Vivacious girls often make quite unnecessary display of fetth and gums when speaking, Bom'' twist' their lips Into all kinds of fantastlo shapes or frown ferociously, If they talked before their looking glasses they would soon mend their .; an avowed suftragotto of tho very mili tant type, will receive a card on which Is pasted the cut out picture of a pair of loudly checked trousers. Cupid hovers at the top of the card waving a banner Inscribed: "To My Valentine. Who Will Wear tho Trousers, Dear, You or I?" Tho Illustrations give some original notions for the home valentine product. Tho heart shaped lace dollies nre mounted In several Instances over tho square whlto cards, nnd In tho center of tho sentenco "To My Vnlcntlno" a sticker Cupid or two are pasted. Tho red heart stickers on one of tho cards about a real box ot parlor matches are a pretty und appropriate decoration for the Inscription which runs, "Shall We Strike a Match?" For a confirmed old bachelor nothing could bo moro significant as a warn ing than tho valentine depleting a most unattractive baldheaded man. Around tho grotesque presentment, fancifully lettered, Is the doggerel: "You'll be nn ugly old 'bach Just like this If you don't make a choice pretty soon. That's why I send you a valen tine wish that you'll find tho right girl and right Boon." This Is the plain unvarnished text not put up into poetical form. The Illustration best shows how It Is done. The coquette will probably send to some poor suffering victim of Cupid the heart wringing valentine. In this device a toy patent clothes wringer Is pasted between two red hearts, and tho heart wringing song Is as follows: Iloth clothes and of men I wring In fact, that's my vocation. My aid to you I'll Kindly bring Whatever your vocation. Here red heart stickers take the place of the written word.

Why do some women grow old and others keep tho secret of perpetual youth? Here Is the answer. One reason why the average woman wears out, grows plain before her hus band, is that, through a mistaken Idea everlastingly In the same tiresome way. Can any woman keep brightness, originality of thourht or speech or even mere prettlncss vlth such a life? And without the-te .H. rs how can she keep he:- husoanj nri growing children of duty, she lays out for herself at the J full ot loving aQ.nlratlon, which Is the strong chain by which she can bind thorn to her?

Dame Fashion's -Plans For Spring GRAY CHIFFON OVER PINK SILK. QMI15 separate waist matching tho mat ana MKirt uunas tins season tak en the placo sd long occupied by waists of lingerie materials. Now that tho peasant etyle Is such a favorite It Is possible for any woman clever with her needle to have several of these wulsts at small expense. This model Is easy to fit and make and has the added nil- r vantage of requiring a small amount ot goods. The blouses Illustrated ure four of the best creations of their kind turned out by French dressmakers and are NEW CLUNY LACE EFFECT. modfcis that will bo copied oxtenslvely for spring waists. Tho cluny laco blouse Is a chlo confection, the nnv point being the long shoulder effect that runs down Into the short slop.'es. Two of tho other blouses are of sl and two of ch'll'ton. Very smurt. Is the waist of soft finished taffeta' In a rich shade of grass green, a fashionable color now. It Is mada on peasant lines, with tiny buttons set In rowo on front and 3leeves, The. arrangement of plh tucks in front to glvo fullness over tho bust is a good Idea. Ono of the chiffon blouses Is mounted over lace nnd trimmed with self colored satin and buttons, tho yoke bolntr mart, of rows of this silk put together with entre deux of ohantllly luce. The other blouse, of gray chiffon over pink silk. Is exquisitely graceful nnd Is trimmed With folds of pink chiffon In eollnr unrt cuff style. yiTII the old mnhogpny furn'wre which every woman aspires to In these days the fluffy little bureau scarf of lace and sheer linen Is decidedly out ot the picture, and from a hygienic standpoint the fewer fluffs In the sleep-1 Ing room the better. Bureau covers that are meeting with favor this season are of pique In shades to match the coloring of the apartment or they are of pure white, nnd each cover for bureau, chest or tnblo le of the same mnterlal. This gives an Indi vidual touch to the room not afforded by the covers of laee and linen. A pique Is chosen of a fine but rlrni weavo, and the covers are cut to fit tho tops of the pieces they are designed to adorn. The ends do not hang over as they did In other years. Tho cushion top may bo cut from tho corners. One design is used on all tho covers, that of a buttonholed scallop for tho edges done In mercerized cotton after the scallop has been heavily padded with darning cotton. White Is, of course, the most serviceable color, but the shade harmonizing with the room Is much liked. The newest Idea Is to work the scallops In white and uso the room tint as an outline. Old blues, ohlnese red, dull rose or warm browns give pleasing results. Most women take their sets to the shops to be stamped. And It Is well toQ remember that about a half Inch of material should be allowed for shrink ing above the regular dimensions of the covers and enough of the edge to work the scallop nicely. And, by the way, do not cut tho scallop until the work Is completed, and to Insure the life of the scatlop the edge should be first run on the sewing machine betoro buttonhol ing. The monogram or Initials of the own er appear on these covers. For a dress ing table or bureau the marking of the monogram should go across the front so It comes In the middle ot tho length or It can go Immediately In the middle of the cover. For a table tho marking goes acrosr the front edge In the middle or dlago- nolly across thn front right hand cor ner. Pincushions this year nre small er than they have been. Those four or firo Inches square or three and a half by six are In good proportions. Tho edges are scalloped like the covers and tho monogram placed directly on top In tho center of the cover. The pincush ion Is usually of satin, and the pique top buttons over It so that laundering of the piece Is easy work. r;.T-z r . ,, vi Ilk . .'.' yfrrCTfJWSflK' , i W ,!..' f a J2iiJH)& &WW.Ut k. r:T ' 'flS .
