For the Hostess
New Geography Party. This party was arranged and car ried out by a fond aunt for her little niece aged ten. There were 20 guests and the invitatlona read thua: "Miss Dorothy Brown requeeta the pleasure of Mias Mary Collins’ com pany at a geography party on Tues day from four to seven, April 21, at 8425 Spring street. Costumes.” The invitations were sent out a good two weeks in advance to give the mothers time to talk it over and plan the costumes. In many Instances what the children had determined the char acter they represented. For example: The little boy who had a complete Indian outfit went as “The first Amer ican,” a lad who rejoiced in a good big, fat plaster pig went as an Irish man with a clay pipe and a high bat, | a vivid green necktie and a quaint lit tle black swallow-tail coat worn over brilliant green knee breeches.. The young hostess represented “Miss Geography.” Her dress was of pale blue silk, with a band of maps around the bottom put on with library paste; a wide girdle was the equator. It was of black velvet and the shoul ders had a series of graduated capes of grayish silk, marked "Cape Horn,” "Cape Hatteras.” Her neck was cir cled by the Isthmus of Panama. On her head ske wore a cunningly de vised cap of papier mache made from a globe. In her hand she carried a wand, from which blue and white rib bons streamed, bearing the names "North and South Poles.” One of the amusements was a jolly game called “Mall Bags.” The guesta sat on chairs in a’ semi-circle and when the leader called out "The mall Is going from Ireland to Mexico,” the two children representing these places ran and changed chairs as quickly as possible. When the leader called“ Ge neral Delivery” then every one changed places, a chair being taken out quick ly by the leader and the one who was left became the leader when the next "mall went out.” Another game proved a great success. A large map of Europe was hung on the wall and each child was given a bit of paper marked "Dan (I must explain that Dan was about to go to fiurope for the summer); the game was to study the map first to find the location of Paris; then each child in turn was blindfolded and tried to see how near • they could come to putting “Dan” In Paris. Each slip of paper was left Just where placed on the map until all had tried. Then It was great fun ' to see where "Dan” found himself. Only one came any place near Paris. The last amusement of all was the most fun. The guests were told to form In line and go into the next room to buy their tickets for the coun try or place they represented. The found a real ticket office, with an ac commodating father as the business like agent. As the applicant presented himself the question was: "What country are you?” The answer, we’ll Dresses for Girls 'HE dress shown In the first Illustra tion Is quite simple hut smart; It I T* la suitable for making up in any fine : woolen, Shantung or linen.

A conductor and engineer were on hand with whistle and punch, and as the tickets were punched each child' got off the train and found his or her city or place of destination on a largo map of the world Ranging on the wall. There was a pointer so all could see the place when found. From each destination there was suspended a ribbon attached to a small parcel which the traveler took for his own and returned to the train. When all had their parcels the journey was ended. The favors were small band boxes, trunks and suit cases filled with bonbons. A Surprise Party. A young correspondent wants sug gestions for a surprise party. Person ally I do not like "surprises,” but if some one of the family Is taken into confidence the affair can generally bo managed with satisfaction to all. Let each girl prepare a basket or box of luncheon for two, just as daintily as possible. On arriving pile their boxes in one place. After the surprise is over I would suggest some good games, such as have appeared in the department from week to week, then blindfold one boy at a time and let him select a basket or box and stand in line with his treasure unopened. After all are supplied, each one Is to have three guesses to determine which girl prepared the refreshment. When partners are found go to the dining room, where doubtless some willing member of the family will have arranged a pretty table. MADAME MERRI. IN VOGUE The new beaded sashes are lovely. Marquisette blouses are high in favor and may be had In all styles and colorings. Curls hanging at one side of the head have returned to favor. This style is suitable for the youthful type of face.

I consulted a doctor who treated me for ringworm. I saw no change and consulted a specialist and he claimed I bad psoriasis. I contin ued treatments under him for about six months until I saw scales break ing out all over my body save my face. My scalp w r as affected, and my hair began to fall. I then changed doctors to no avail. I went to two hospitals and each wanted to make a study of the case and seemed unable to cure it or assure me of a cure. I tried several patent medicines and was finally advised by a friend who has used Cuticura on her children Elnce their birth, to purchase the Cuticura Remedies. I purchased a cake of Soap, the Ointment and the Resolvent. After the first application the itching was allayed. “I am still using the Soap and Oint ment and now feel that none other Is good enough for my skin. The psor iasis has disappeared and I every where feel better. My hands were so disfigured before using the Cuticura Remedies that I had to wear gloves all the time.
