edges that the cut and the set of
a sleeve Is one of the most im
portant matters, as well as one
of the most difficult in dress
making. The style and finish is
equally a factor in the symmetry
and becomingness of the cob
tume when complete. And the
CUFF with its trimming is often
the determining point.
This picture shows the very
new long-sleeve "aeroplane"
cuff, the resemblance to a wing
giving it the unique name. In
stead of being tight-fitting, a
pleasing suggestion of fullness
is worked into the upper part of
the cuff by the introduction of
four tiny pleats on the inside of
the sleeve near the bend in the
arm. Hut the really attractive
feature of the cuff is the soft,
plated frilling of chiffon which
circles the lower edge of the
sleeve and extends in a single
line up the outside of it nearly
as far as the elbow.
For the woman who finds it
necessary to turn back the Bleeve
of her dress-up waist occasionally
when compelled to be housemaid
as well as hostes the "aeroplane"
may be eaily fashioned with an
opening of the outside seam and
fitted with hooks and eyes or pat
ent fasteners. In this way the
entire cuff may be drawn up over
the other part of the sleeve to
protect It from dirt when neces
sary.

WILL SHE BE AN OLD MAID?
Dear Miss Grey: I am a young girl Ik, although I look
and art more Uka 14.
I am not a "boy crazy" girl; but honestly, Mi-> Grey, I
am getting tired of bring isolated from even the company of
my girl friends—just because I am not like them in that way.
80 the other night I went out with a girl friend; in a short
tliue we met two boy frieudti of hers. Of course they wanted
to see us home.
I was beginning to think the boy I wax witli was a gen
tleman; lint before very long he put Ills arm around me. I
politely told him that was not necessary, and he gave me a
slight push, »s though he was disgusted with we. Do all girls
that are popular with young boys allow them such privileges,
or am I wrong in resenting them? Kveryone tells me I will
be an old maid. I don't think there is any immediate danger,
do you?
I believe in only one lovo and I think T will know Uie right
one when he comes along. JI'ST A (.IHHR
A. —You are certainly on -the right track. There is a certain
kind of popularity gained by familiarity with the opposite sex;
but no self-respecting girl cares for it. Far better be a self-respect
ing old maid forty times over than the plaything of every sensual
boy who has not learned what It is to be a man; or to sell yourself
la marriage.
You will know when the right one comes, and would better
hold to your high ideals until he does—and after.
WHO 1)11) WftOMO?
Pear Miss fJrey: I'leasP give us your advice. There wns a
home broken up by a jouiik num. He pernnn<li'd the womun
to leave her huslmiul. Her husband Rot a divorce The young
man left her. She remarried her former lwsltMnd; but sho
Mill says she loves the other man betU-r thun lu'r husband.
There in a baby two years old.
Now, what kind of a mun wns thnt to brenk up n home?
Is he worthy of her love? Also, wliut kind of a woman was ,
she? Did she do rii>h< to reiniirry her former husbaiKl, and is
she doing ri^ht to tell him ili.it .she loves the one Hint broke
up the home? Did the husband <lo right i, v remarrying her?
He did it for the sake of bis child. Who did wrong? They
all want to know. Your answer will settle this niixiip.
A.—Right motive combined with good judgment is what de
termines the right or wrong of an action. There is no question
but that the young man and the woman did very wrong.
If the husband took her back for the sake of the child or for
her sake he did right. If the woman followed the mo»her-call when
she re-married her husband she did right; but if she married him
because the young man wouldn't support her she did a very selfish
thing.
If each will be governed by principle, by the right and wrong
of each action, happiness will result. Neither should dig up the
skeleton of the past, for its bones will rattle every time, and it is
not pleasant to hear. If they are kind and thoughtful to each other,
true love will come.

room with crepe paper vines with the blossoms and the pumpkins
hanging from them. A stack of corn stalks and large bunches of
autumn leaves and berries are most decorative. Tlse pumpkin
lanterns with some yellow electric light bulbs in the blossoms. The
invitation should be small paper pumpkins that open book-like and
"Request the peasure of the friends' company at the pumpkin shell,
Where Peter Pumpkin and his wife will treat them well. Saving
them from all anxious cares caused by Halowwe'en witches' snares."

ANSWERS "BROTHER" ON CHAPERONE QUESTION
Dour Miss Grey: I think a great deal liku "A Brother,"
ready to talk their heads off to their sister**; hut are they ready
and willing to take those misters and show them a good time,
the same as they would another boy's sister?
If he would try that scheme awhile, and try talking less,
he would find his sisters are worth getting better acquainted
with, and make as good company as other girls.
"A Brother," you can't exi>ect your sisters to stay at home
always. And If you know so much about how hoys act, it's up
to you to act so some mother will feel safe to let her daugh
ter go out evenings with you.

money must he have due before he can be garnlsheed? Is a
minor exempt from garnishment? READER.
A.—A physician's bill cornea under necessity, and can be gar

sum at stated times.

After I'd found the exile rating

tell him about the ad In the paper
from a dark-eyod senorita in Mi

whereabouts, and then go my way
happy in a good action well done.
But instead of doing it, I paused.
That would be too tame. There
wouldn't be much climax. Mr.
Tomales might lose a lot of time
writing to the dark-eyed senorita,
and the glad reunion would be
comparatively cold-lilooded. Now
if I could only lead the girl to
him there would be a real snappy
reunion with throbs galore. It
would be regular mellerdrammer.
That's why I didn't break it to

that maybe the dark-eyod senor-

were put in the paper from there
it probably would have come
through his office. It strikes me
that maybe she is right here in
town anxious to be on the scene
in caHe he was discovered. How
to get hold of her was the next
question. Why, through another
ad, of course. So I hiked down
to the newspaper office and put
an ad in the Personals saying that
if the "dark-eyed senorita In Ml
