rorMnoiirtpn<!i nre roqarited not to »pnd ntaiups for personal replies. Miss Doon’n moll Is too heavy to permit her to write private letters. J Letters written on both sides I of paper will not be considered, t For advice lu affairs of the J heart address Miss Polly Poyn- j ter, who will have entire charge 1 of that departmcnt ln thc fotarc. j To Keep Hair in Curi. Dear Miss Doon: Kindly fell me something that will curl my hair when I am at the seashore. My hair gets perfectly straight. You published a perscrlptlon. which I cut out but lost. Will you kindly publish it again and oblige, M. C. It Is rather difficult to keep the hair In curl at the seashore, but I would not advise the frequent use of hair curling fluids, as they are apt to make the hair dry. However, an occasional application will probably not be In jurious. If the hair is moistened with a solution of sugar and water when it is put up In curlers It will stay It curl quite a #vhile. Here are the ray|nas for two curling fluids: (1) Bruised quince seed..l tablespoonful Distilled water.1 pint Boll gently until reduced to 3 gills, strain through cheesecloth and add two tablespoonfuls of alcohol and the same amount of cologne. Bottle and moisten the hair with the fluid when curling. (2) Gumarabic, 1 ounce; sugar, H ounce; pure hot water, % pint; alcohol, 2 fluid ounces; bichloride of mercury, 8 grains; sal ammoniac, 6 grains. The last two should be dissolved In the alco hol before mixing. Lastly, add enough water to make the whble measure one pint. Perfume with cologne or laven der water. Moisten the hair with the fluid before curling. To Clean Tortoise Shell. My Dear Miss Doon: I have a tortoise-shell comb which has become dull looking. Is there any way I can clean It myself? I* K. To brighten the comb rub it with sweet oil, wipe it dry and then cover with whiting or a good silver powder and polish with a chamois. To keep the comb in good condition wash It frequently in tepid water apd then polish with a piece of flannel or cham ois dipped in olive oil. ^ ++H++++I4’H"K'+'H'++++++++ | Fashion Talks § 5 BY MAY MANTON. 1 4* 4* A SMART SUIT OF BLACK SATIN. 7040 Surplice Peasant Waist, 34 to 42 bust. 7 >34 Tunic Skirt over Five-gored Foun dation, 22 to 30 waist. Heavy black satin makes some of th# handsomest as well as most fashion able suits for the early season. This one combines a street blouse made with deep revers and tunic skirt, and is worn over a guimpe. The high waist line, the sailor collar, the pointed revers, the shaped tunic, all give evi dence of the latest styles, and the suit is altogeher chic in the extreme. It is simple, also, as are many of the newest models, for the blouse is made in one piece with the sleeves, and the tunic consists only of two portions that are overlapped at front and back and ar ranged over a plain skirt finished with a slightly circular flounce. The entire costume of satin is exceedingly hand some, as well as in the height of style, but we are to have a great many fabrics, and the model can be utilized in a variety of ways. The tunic and blouse could be made of one material, with the collar, revers, cuffs and flounce of the skirt of another, to make a quite different effect. Serge could be combined with either satin or velvet . in this way, or satin could be com bined with cloth to be exceedingly smart, for cloth trimmings on silk foundations are among the newest of ferings of La Mode. If a quite dif ferent effect is wanted, the blouse can be made without either collar or revers and the skirt can be cut to the natural waist line. For the medium size the blouse will require 2% yards of material 27 inches wide, 2?4 yards 36 or 1% yards 44; for the guimpe will be needed yards 33, ■with one yard of all-over lace for the •hemlsaUa facing under sleeves, and Watermelon Ice. Dear Miss Doon: Will you kindly tell we how to make watermelon ice? S L. Cut a ripe melon in half lengthwise. Remove all the red part In pieces, throwing away the seeds, and pyt In the freezer. Sprinkle with sugar and add one-half pint sherry. Pack and let remain two hours.. Clean half the melon rind and cut a thin slice from the bottom so that it will stand. When ready to use turn the nearly frozen melon into the rind and serve' from it. Ribbon Cake. Dear Miss Doon: Have you n good recipe for ribbon cake? I had one and loot It. If you will answer at your earliest convenience you will win the gratitude of COOK. Here Is a recipe which is well recom mended: Three eggs, one and a half cups sugar, two-thlfds cup butter, one cup milk, half teaspoonful soda, one and a half teaspoons cream, of tartar, flour enough to make batter, one tea spoon lemon. Bake In three Washing ton pie tins, adding to the third one quarter teaspoon cloves, cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg. Put three together with Jelly or plain frosting, placing dark loaf between the two light ones. Laundering a Veil. Dear Mias Doon: la it necessary to Iron a veil after wash ing it? J have a White silk one which needs laundering. F. F. F. Do not iron the veil, but pin It to a pillow or to a flat surface. Corn Oysters. Dear Miss Doon: Can you give me a recipe for corn oysters? HOUSEWIFE. Here Is a recipe for corn oysters which I am sure you will And very satisfactory: One pint of green corn pulp, two large eggs, one tablespoonful of melted butter, some flour, seasoning of salt, pepper and cayenne. Cut the corn through the kernel with a sharp knife, and remove the pulp, add the remaining Ingredients, with enough flour to shape into small cakes; fry In smoking hot fat, drain and serve. Proverb Contest. Dear Miss Doon: Will you please Inform me through your columns what time the STAR proverb contest closed. ,T, W. The contest closed July 3 at 5 o’clock. for the skirt will be required 9H yards of material 27, 7^4 yards 38 or 44 Inches wide.

A gown of black br dark blue or while may be worn repeatedly without excit ing comment, or even critical observa tion, while one soon is known by a dress of bright red or green. A fash ionable shade or color will be all the rage for a few weeks or a season. Then its favor is exhausted and it goes out even more swiftly than It came In, and a dress or a hat of this tint Is dis tinctly passe.

J ++'f+++++++++++*++*+++'f++++ Police Commissioner Waldo, of New York, has received from Joseph Evan* of 9 Malta road, Mafsh lane, Bootle. Liverpool, who described himself as "only a workingman," a recipe for keeping cool In hot weather. This is his advlc4: "For a narrow bed get a piece of wood about the thickness of a broom handle that will reach from the head to the foot, about twelve Inches above a person lying In bed. Then get a newspaper and gum or sew the sheets together so that they will reach down the sides of the bed and over the wood. Then place a sheet for blankets over the paper. That Is all that Is wanted. Leave a space of about eighteen Inches clear from the head of the bed, and the person lying under it will find a nice, cool current of air passing through. "For a full-sized bed the ogly differ ence Is that It requires two pieces of wood or a cord drawn tight about eighteen Inches from- each side." How Long? Dear Miss Poynter: How long do you think a man and a woman ought to he acquainted before be coming engaged? I have been friends with a young man for ten mouths, but my parents think that Is too short an ac quaintance for an engagement. What do you think about it? A READER. It all depends upon circumstances and the man and the woman. Some people who are naturally suited to each other are thoroughly acquainted in a couple of weeks and are sure of their feeling for each other, while others take a couple of years or even longer, and still others never thoroughly un derstand each other. In most cases love is not a question of time, though In a few It is the result of steady and prolonged growth. If your parents wish you to wait a few months longer do so, for you should lose no oppor tunity of giving an example of the respect in which you hold their wishes. Both you and your future fiance will find that you will be happier, for doing so. Your affection for each other will ' be in no way decreased by the short 1 delay in announcing the engagement. 1 How Late? Dear Miss Poynter: I recently met a young man whom I like ■ very much. He came to call on me the other night and stayed until half-past twelve. My father scolded me and said I would have to tell him to leave earlier. j How can I do so without hurting his feel ings? ANXIOUS. 1 Your father is right in not wishing you to entertain until 12:30. Just tell f your friend that your father objects '$ to his staying so late, and I am sure he will understand. Be sure to have a clock in sight. Sometimes young people become so interested In each other that they lose all track of tjma unless there ts a strong reminder at hand. | NOVEL NECKTIE. | ♦+♦+♦♦++++++*+++++++♦++++♦ An oddity In neckwear that can easily be copied at home is made of Inch-wide velbet ribbon brought round the base of collar and held In front over the crossed ends by a beaded slide.

It will be the first time in fifty years that she has played the role of guest of honor at a social function The oc casion will be the golden anniversary of the day she entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. .Samuel Faulkner, of this city, to cook, wait on tables, sweep, wash, iron and tend the baby. In all those fifty years there has been no menacing cloud on the Faulk ner domestic horizon. "Barbie” has done her work, faithfully and well. Mr. and Mrs. Faulkner and their eleven children have appreciated her and treated her with consideration. "There's nothing remarkable lybout my employment of half a century with Mrs. Faulkner," says Barbie. "Mrs. What Else is There, Madam, So Vital as Milk? Y911 insist that all other foods be utterly sterile. Why don’t you insist on a germless milk? Why not a whole, rich milk? * If a child wanted raw meat ryou would quickly forbid it. But isn't the danger of germ infection many times as great in raw milk? If water was germ * laden you would boil before drinking. But raw milk is a germ-breeder, and is always germ-lqden. What do you do about that? Careful people are coming to sterilized milk. And the beat milk of that kind produced in Amer ica is Van Camp’s rich Holstein milk. Just Natural Milk In the rich dairying districts of seven northern states we milk 30,000 cows per day. They are pure-bred Holsteins, kept in model dairies. They are guarded by constant inspec tion. Close to each dairy is an evaporating plant, conducted with hospital cleanliness. The milk fresh from the cows is brought to those plants and placed in a copper vacuum. but water is taken out. When you replace the water you have a milk exactly the same as it came from the cow, save for sterilization. Exceedingly Rich This milk when evaporated is as thick as thick cream. It is so rich that you add one part water for coffee, for cereals or ice cream. It is 28 per cent solids, 8 per cent butter fat. When you use it in cooking it gives a richness and flavor unknown from milkman's milk. The reason is this: Milkman's milk always separates. The butter fat rises and the solids fall. The milk which comes to your cooking is rarely more than a half-milk. Van Camp’s is whole milk. It has all the but ter fat, all the solids belonging to the richest milk. Make one milk dish with it and find out what a difference this whole milk makes. Saves About Half If Van Camp’s is reduced to the usual milk’s richness the cost will figure about six cents per quart. We save you the cost of the milkman's daily delivery, and that is more than the milk cost. And we save you the waste. Van Camp's means a cow in the pantry. Rich milk or cream whenever you want it. All that you want, and no more. An opened can keeps until you use it up. This saving in cost, plus the saving of waste, in the average home will cut milk bills in two. You can get the utmost in milk — pure, sterile, whole, rich milk — for less than you pay the milkman. A $100,000 Milk We have spent in seven years Over (100,000 to bring Van Camp’s Milk to its present match less standard. We have employed for the pur pose the ablest Swiss and Dutch experts. The result is the finest milk produced in Amer ica—unexcelled by any milk in Switzerland or Holland. Yet it costs no more tljan common evaporated milks. It costs far less than milkmen charge for germ-laden milk from mongrel cows. A single day’s use will make you forever a con vert. You will always insist on Van Camp’s. The 18-oz. can—a full pint of Van Camp's— costs 10 cents. The 6-oz. can costs 5 cents. Your grocer has it, shipped from our nearest dairy. Ask l uAiu > J him now to send you I WWrj ] some.

And, because of the vacuum, the evaporat ting is done without a scalding heat. Nothing is added— no sugar, no starch, no preservative. Nothing Van Camp’s Milk Evaporated—Sterilized—Unsweetened * A Solution of the Servant Problem I Barbara Ritter and tome Keene* from her life. | Faulkner has always treated me well and I’ve always tried to do my work well. That's all there is to the servant problem. If employees would do what they agree to do, and are paid to do, and If mistresses would remember that their employees are human, nobody would suffer.” "Relations between a housekeeper and her employee depend on whether both practise the golden rule,” says Mrs. Faulkner. "There Is no one thing to do or not do. I think It depends mostly on the employer. Women should give their girls a whole day oft every week and afternoons on Sunday. They should pay good wnges and allow extra pay for extra work. “The home should be a religious home, too, and the house girl should be encouraged to be religious. If mistress and maid are really Christians they should be able to get along. “Women should provide a place for »’ their girls to have company and should encourage them to have friends. They should never give tips or allow theit guests to give tips. That is demoralize Ing.” "Barbie” has worked for the Faulks ners continually since she was 13 years old. She intends to remain with thenl as long as she is able to work. Tha Faulkners intend to keep her in tha family even when she finally has to re tire from active work on account of age.
