"Look here, Mary," said a man In front of a big store window to day, "there're making dresses out of bath towels!" His wife saw this was a man's description of the new Terry cloth, which is going to be the most popular material this year, they cay, for out-door frocks and general utility gowns. Terry cloth Is woven much like Turkish toweling and it comes in all col ors, although it looks as though the white and unbleached or ecru would be most worn. It will be made into long coats and all sorts of outing gowns. Its fitness for a "tub gown" is practically perfect, as everyone knows how beautifully the bath towel washes. It will take the place of the heavy linen dress bo much worn last season, and will have an-up-to-date look, not to be obtained by the other material. The little dreßs illustrated is particularly fine for business girl, or the maid who goes to the country for her vacation. It has many new fashioned wrinkles. The pleated Norfolk jacket can be worn with white lingerie gowns or gingham gowns as well as with the skirt of the same material. There is no trimming on the Norfolk jacket this year, except the pleats and bands of the same goods. However, one may be as individual as one pleases about the buttons. Those in the illus tration are dark brown opaque glass, cut square in shape. Glass buttons of all colors and sizes will be used wherever possible this season. Especially Is this true of the transparent cut glass button, which takes the color of the ma- fresh rose petals through the meat grinder eight times dally for eight days, roil into balls the size desired, and string on hat pins. The occupation of West Point as a military post took place in January, 1775. The academy for training cadets was established by an act passed by congress Marcb 16, 1802.

Nothing could be more trig for the business girl than a gown made of dark blue Terry cloth in the simple fashion of the illustra tion. The skirt is perfectly plain and narrow at the top, but it is cut with a little more flare at the bottom than was the mode last year. Under the Norfolk jacket can be worn a white shirt waist. With one of the new plain outing More of Cynthia's Strawberry Recipes SUNSHINE STRAWBERRIES. Weigh your strawberriea and for each pound add 1 pound of granulated can sugar. Stir very carefully so that each berry will re main whole. Let them stand 1-2 hour, then pick out strawberries from juice and place on platters, being careful not to put one berry over another. Jut the juice in a wide top bowl and place both in the sun for 12 hours. Then put berries in jelly glasses and turn over juulce and put glasses in direct sun rays for 12 hours. If made carefully this confection is finer than the famous bar-le-duc and it is more delectable to serve with cream cheese and wafers than the French delcacy. CANE sugar MUST be used for this recipe. STRAWBERRY AND PINEAPPLE CONSERVE. To one quart of strawberries use one pint of pineapple cut in portions about the size of an ordinary strawberry. Weigh the fruit and use the same amount ol granulated sugar and let stand half an hour. Put enough of the fruit and sugar to make two jelly glasses full of conserve, bollls minutes. The secret of success with this conserve is in boiling only a little at a time, otherwise the fruit gets "mushy" and the juice be comes a Jam instead of jelly.

HAl'l'Y Will ANOTHKK em ON "KUNNY" Dear Mi-- Grey: Two foxes were living in harmony, but one of the foxes thought it would be a good idea to assert his imlii iilmility by huvlng a tip out. Ho Mr. Kox outlined the nioduH i>|M'i'iiiiili, gathered Nome rocks together, and looked fiercely at Mrs. Kov and siiid, "These stounn are mine." Mrs. Fox didn't like the idea of fighting over rocks, no she told him to keep them. An they looked at the rocks they Ix-kiiii to realize the futility of the whole thing, and decided to save their energy for their mutual benefit. We but wenken our characters hy be ing obstinate over Niich trifles, and if I were In "A Header's" shoes. I would gel a picture of the two foxew and take it home to my wife and ask her if -he was going to let the little foxes beat uk. When you are tempted to be obstinate- over irifles think of the foxes and 1 think you will have many a iuiigh together when yti'U think of the rocks. CYNTHIA KXri-AINS Dear Mi-- Oft : lam an ignorunt country lass, and I want you to help tut, 1 read the answer you gave to "llrown Kyes," on the question, "What kind of girls do the I>oy9 like?" Ido not nn.leist.Hiul your answer. Do hoys like all kinds of . nirls who use slang, and tell them they like to have them smoke because they like the smell of tobacco? Do boys respect girls that run after them? Or girls who try to make believe they are ihe whole thing? Don't you tliink tin boys are making fools of the girls, when the girls think they are making fools of the boys? IGNOANT COUNTRY LAHH. A. —My answer to "Brown Kyes" was: A sensible boy Is the only one whose opinion Is worth anything, and sensible boys like Jolly, clean-minded girls." I am sure that is very plain. No right minded person can construe "sensible girl" to mean the things you quote. No sensible girl Is deceitful, spoony or forward. She Is one who will laugh at a good joke or story, and refuse to listen to others. She will not encourage a boy to smoke, and sin- will not make her self common by roaming around after night. THE I IKs I HOY I KVKH ADMIKKD Dear Miss Grey: I urn a young school girl and in a seri ous pickle. 1 saw a boy at school whom I fell deeply in love with at first sight. He is in one of my rooms, but I have never (spoken to him, but I think he admires me, as I have seen him ■earnestly gazing at me. I would like to know him. Would It bo all right to smile at him or speak when I we him. oh you dou't hniiM how I love him, he is the first boy I ever admired so, and I cunt sleep at night* for thinking of him. Another question: I have reason to believe another boy admires me, but has not the courage to tell me so, but sends me flowers and candy on the sly. What shall I do? Let him know I like him, but do not like his Imshfiiliicss? DKWDItOP. A. —You are at the emotional period of your life, and If you do not act sensibly now. In opposition to mere feeling, you may He awake nights mourning your foolishness (as you will call It then). Do not smile at boys you do not know. If you cannot meet your boy friends on simply a friendly basis, as you do the girls, let them alone. * Your studies should have your first attention. My dear girl, don't ra£Ke a laughing stock of yourself. A JOKK ON y THK BOYS. Hear Miss Grey: We are • couple of hoys, and went to • ft-JeauFs house the other evening. She had two other girls calling on her. Knowing that these others were there and that we knew them very well, thought it a joke to "stick around." We knew that the hostess wanted to talk to the two girls pri vately, so we offered to do the dishes for her. While we were in the pantry doing them, the two girls beat it for home. Do you think we* were stung, or was it for a joke. BIL,L AND DICK. A.—l think It is a "good one" on you, boys, and the girls were just as clever as you. Use your wits, and toll me how it cornea out I think it a huge joke. liISM \lt( X II Dear Miss Grey: Bismarck II seems to have a great many friends on the outside of the fence, or out in the rain, and they don't seem to have sense enough to come in. Too bad. I have a feeling for Nobody. He should go bark in the dark ages and put in a bid for a wife. He must he a pin head if he thinks all motliers would bar the door against a man if he is one. If he wants the kind of a wife he speaks of he will have to get in and raise her from the cradle. Tell him to get off the market, no sane girl would have him. WILLING. Dear Miss Grey: Could you pli-its,. tell me where I rould find the piece entitled "Harry Brandon"? How can I learn the name of the au thor? ANXIOUS. A. —Apply at the public library. The Great Eastern. Dear Mlm Grey: Oonld you give me the dimensions of the Great Kastern? When I was a child I remember peo ple talked of her. What was she used for? INQUISITIVE. A. —The Great Eastern was a British iron steamship, the larg est ever built before the Celtic. It took from 1854 to 1858 to build her at Milwal, on the Thames, for the Eastern Steam ship Navigation Co. Length, 680 ft.; breadth 82% ft, including paddle boxes, 118 ft.; height, 58 ft., 70 ft. to top of bulwarks. She had six masts, five of iron and one of wood, and could fly 7,00 ■> yards of sail besides having eight engines. After several financially unsuccessful trips to New York, she was used as a troop and cable laying vessel. Finally in 1888 she was broken up. Did Right. Dear Miss Grey: I was at ■ a dance a few days ago and asked a young lady to dance * with me. She turned me down cold. Is a girl ladylike to turn a man down because she doesn't know him? ROBINSON CRUSOE. A.—The girl did exactly right. If you wished to dance with her you should have had an introduc tion. If at a private dancing party the hostess will do this. At a pub lic danga It la the duty of the manager. - * AU Around the /lome 'by oyt-miiA. anzx Bleach " Potatoes. \ ' To , keep V- old ; potatoes i" from turning black, when putting them on to boil add one-half teacup of sweet milk to the water in which they ball.
