Polo Coats. My Dear Miss Doon: Will you kindly let me know In your Evening STAR whether white polo coats will be worn this fall and winter? What klud of material shall I buy? J. S. Yes. I believe white polo coats will be worn during the fall and winter. However, they are for special occa sions, and not for constant wear. Unless you can have two coats I advise gou to buy one of the pretty reversible materials instead of white. Buy the regular polo coating. Canary. Miss Doon: I have a canary which has always been a fine singer Until recently, when the singing stopped. It Is not moulting, but seems to be lDfestcd with miles. It takes several baths a week and Its cage is kept scrupulously clean, as I can take It apart after transferring the bird to a smaller cage In the meantime. I have used the canton flannel remedy with no effect whatever. Is there nothing I can put in the bath water or spray it with to kill the mites or the eggs? The bird Is lively and has a good appetite, but digs at Itself constantly. I miss Its beautiful song. CANARY. Most birds are troubled with mltea, and It Is very hard to get rid of them. There aro powders for this purpose Bold at bird stores. Moisten a rag with kerosene and go over the cage with It every week, paying particular attention to the top, which Is tho breeding place of the pests. Make a small bag of coarse red flannel, All It with powdered sulphur and hang It from the top of tho cage. As the bird hits against It the sulphur will sift through the flan nel Into his feathers. The loss of song may be caused by a cold. Be suro he Is not hanging In a draught. A little piece of fat pork hung In his cage for him to nibble at will help cure the cold. I hope your pet will soon be restored to his own cheery self. To Clean Vest. Dear Miss Doon: Kindly tell mo how to clean a man a white mercerized vest. MRS. M. H.

If the name had been taken somehow from my own thoughts it was a remarkable case of telepathy, but no, it had been the pro fessor, not the medium, who had named the voice, and by his tone this had been a familiar one often heard before, if I the name had any other than a chance connection with my affair I could not fathom it. There must be in all of us an‘ instinct for the occult, an affinity for illicit short-cuts through difficulty that comes of mental and moral Indolence—the in stinct that causes the schoolboy to look up the answer to his problem in the back of the book, and sends ignorance running to the soothsayer. Here was I, an educated man with what I hoped was not less than ordinary intelligence, in the grip of a crushing question, and instead of seeking certainty through rational search, I was mulling over a mummery which purported to be a communication from another world. I was not better than a kitchen-maid at her dream-book and fortune-teller. Carucci had said that Lady was secret ly Reid’s wife—or rather that he had gone through a false form of marriage with her, having already a wife or an entanglement abroad. It was too hor rible and too ruinous to all that I most hoped for to be true; it was not like the people concerned; but it was un bearably like all that I knew them to have said and done.

The painful, dangerous and expensive operation known as “face-peeling" is not necessary to accomplish the results, sought. One can gradually and safely remove the old and unbeautiful cuticle from her face without pain, danger or detention Indoors. Simply use ordinary mercolized wax, which can be obtained at. any drug store. Apply It for a few mghts like cold cream and wasli it off each morning. The mercollde in the wax slowly absorbs the half-dead outer skin, which flakes oft day by day in fine, invisible particles. The fresh young skin underneath soon blooms forth radiantly, making the face look years younger and much prettier. Em ployment of this process Is not notice able to others, except that your com plexion improves rapidly. Of course, the removal of the surface skin in this pleasant manner takes with it ail facial blemishes, such as chaps, freakies, moth catches, liver spots, fine wrinkles, pimples, etc. Mercolized wax has been known for years to many society women noted for their beautiful and lasting com plexions. BRAIDS AND FRINGES POPULAR ON SUITS. The perfectly plain, untrimmed suit Is the exception this year, when silk facing, velvet collars, braids and fringes galore are loaded on tailored wear. Illustrated is a little French suit of fine serge In the very dark color called crow's wing. The coat Is a modified cutaway type and Is rather short-walsted at the back.

By the time I had shaken myself into so much common sense, the after noon was far gone; and after a very early meal, I set out again for the l East .-e with the strained calmness ' of a man who walks<into the Jaws of a | crisis to escape the devils that dance ■ with their shadows behind him. There ; was a mocker?' of evening freshness : In the air, though the heat still poured | upward relentlessly from the sunbaked uncleanliness underfoot. The streets | were so crowded with the weary tur I moll of released workers, that I made | my way .against the stream with some I difficulty; and as T neared my desti nation the difficulty Increased. An eddying mass of humanity filled the narrow sidewalks and overflowed Into the street among rumbling drays and trampling, scrambling-horses; gangs of workmen with their tools, nervous and preoccupied business men, pallid clerks and stenographers, and droves of fac tory hands, men and womeh together, clamoring in a very Babel of lan guages. 1 noticed but one other man going toward the waterside—a heavily built fellow with a red handkerchief about his neck, some yards in front of me; and presently, as he turned side wise to avoid being jostled into a lamp post, 1 saw that it was t'arueoi. There could be no mistake; it was lie. in bis best clothes apparently, and alone, -a dozen blocks from his own street. Sheila was nowhere in sight; however he had become separated from her, with or against her will, it was in.v.business to follow him. Here was my chance for a talk with him alone; and as lie passed his own corner and still kept on his way southward, it began to look as If 1 should be killing two birds with one stone. I found h no very hard matter to keep him in sight.; for the peculiar brightness of the handkerchief at his neck marked him a block away. There were other Italians, to be sure, but none so gorgeously bedecked, nor whose gait was so wondrous a combination of a roll, a stagger, and a strut. To overtake him. however, among that crowd was not so easy; and T was afraid, besides, that coming suddenly upon him frbni behind might spoil my whole opportunity by making him angrily suspicious I followed, accord ingly. as best I might, for some dis tance; anjJ when at'last, with a swag ger of grimy magnificence, he pushed through a pair of swinging doors I thought that my chance had arrived. I waited a moment outside, (hat 1 might not seem to patently to have followed him: and as I stood there a precocious small boy came up and looked me over.

The bodice is of white tulle, with a llchu effect of duchess lace on one side and the surplice idea on the other.

MAK MARTYN K T.: From what you say, I judge your trouble la not eczema, but a rash caused by the too profuse use of face powder, and tbe only remedy is to employ a good massage cream lo thor oughly cleanse the skin of local Im purities. A greaaeless cream-jelly (ft exceptional vafne can be made at little cost by stirring two teaapoonfulB glycerine in a half pint cold water, and adding one ounce nlmozoin. Let stand over night then apply to face, neck and arms and I massage in thoroughly. A few- such treat ments rid the skin of roughness, eradicate pimples and l>la« kheads and dispel sallow ness, while the complexion will take on a youthful tint and freshness. Mrs. L. B.: 1 know’ it is discouraging to be overfat. but. this can be quickly remedied If you buy four ounces par | notis from your druggist and dissolve it j in one pint and a half hot water. When [ it cools take a tablespoonful before s meals. Keep up treatment regularly until desired weight Is reached. You ; will find this method will not injure I or Inconvenience you In any way, ami it will not leave the skin flabby or 1 wrinkled. Q. T.: You can restore the original , color to the hair and correct those scalp • troubles by using this inexpensive nalr I tonic: Mix together one-half pint each I alcohol and water and in this put one i ounce quinzoin.

Drug gists charge a dollar /or an ounce i package of delatone, but this cost ‘.s I trifling Ruth M.: The insomnia and loss of appeiite of which you speak are carded by an impoverished condition of the blood. What you require is a blood cleanser and tonic. For a small sum you can make your own by getting an ounce of kardene and a half pint ale > hoi. Dissolve one-lialf cupful sugar in the alcohol, then add the kardene, and hot water to make a full quart. Take a tableBpoonful three times each day and your natural health and strength will soon return. The kurdene is gentle In action and quickly rebuilds worn or waste tissues. Edna: A dry. Itchy scalp usually fol lows the use of an alkali shampoo mix ture. This robs the glands of their necessary oils and causes the tissues to die. The only way to restore vitality and banish the dandruff is to shampoo occasionally with plain canthrox. a tea spoonful of which dissolved in hot water is enough for a thorough cleansing. You can obtain an original package of can throx at any drug store, and you will find that, aside from keeping the scalp in « clean, healthy condition, it will induce an abundant growth of fluffy, brilliant hair. A. D.

You will find this nicer than owder, as it is invisible when on. does not rub off. and gives to the complexion a charm and richness impossible any other way.
