Clever Missives to

Doitics and Trin-
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

As this hostess Is familiar with tho
fnds and foibles of her guests tho sup

It Is not necessary for a hostess to
spend much money or tlmo on the

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

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. '
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

Dame Fashion's -Plans
For Spring
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
The blouses Illustrated ure four of
the best creations of their kind turned
out by French dressmakers and are
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.
