Tan Shoes and Brass Dear Miss Doon : Will you kindly let me know If there is any way to get a small grease spot out of a new tan shoe?

No doubt by this time the grease tias soaked thoroughly into the leath er. Cover the spot quickly with powdered French chalk or fullers’ earth and let stand for several days. The powder should absorb the grease, tf this fails take the shoe to a pro fessional bootblack. I think your bed needs re-lacquer ing. Why not consult the man that ■old it to you?

Mas sage until the scalp is loose and pli able, and about twice a week rub tn a little crude oil, taking care not to get much on the hair. Shampoo with liquid green soap every four weeks.

Place a clean blotter beneath the spots and then sponge them quickly with chloroform or ether, using a soft cloth for the purpose. If you are careful no rings will form. MRS.

Daily Fashion Talks BY MAY MANTON V 7703—Seuii-Princesse Gown, 34 to 44 bust. A SMART AND SERVICEABLE GOWN The semi-princesse gown continues to be a favorite. In this illustration an excellent model is shown! Here it is made of serge with trimming of satin and banding and a chemisette of lace, and the effect is extremely attractive. Charmeuse with trimming of velvet would make a very pretty gown. Royal blue with black vel vet, tan colored wool velours with brown velvet, white broadcloth or serge with black satin or velvet would all be attractive combinations of materials and colors. Later In the season the model will he found a good one for linen with trimming of embroidery. The skirt is cut in three pieces and the blouse is a simple one with set-in sleeves. The trimming portions on the blouse, sleeves and; skirt are distinctly new and smart, | and the big collar is pretty. If the ] long plain sleeves are not liked, those of three-quarter length with fancy cuffs can be substituted. For the medium size the dress will require 69* yards of material 27, BV* | yards 36 or 49* yards 44 Inches wide, , with 1% yards of satin, % yard of banding and 9a yard of allover lace 18 inches wide for tho chemisette. The width of the skirt at the lower edge is 2 yards. The May Manton pattern of tho gown, 7703, is cut in sizes from 34 to 44 inches bust measure.

Write your address very plainly and al ways specify size wanted. “The character of all work depends upon the intelligence of the person who performs it." There is no such thing as the so called "luck” in cake-making and baking. There are certain relative propositions which must be followed. Especially is this true in butter1 cakes, where there is always less but ter than sugar, and less sugar than flour. Less baking powder is re quired with a given measure of flour, than would be necessary in a dough without eggs. For instance, one tea spoonful (level) of baking powder is plenty for each cup of flour where several whole eggs are used. When too much baking powder is used the cake is apt to be dry and coarse grained. It is a mistake to think a new dough recipe should be necessary every time a new cake or change is desired. Keep the same fundamental princi ples of the dough in flour, sugar, but ter and liquid, then vary in the num ber of eggs, yolks and whites or both, light or brown sugar, honey or maple sugar, variation in flavorings, melt ed chocolate mixed with the sugar and butter, and so on ad libitum. Some day we will take "Doughs” for our subject, and give the varia tions in loaf ca&es. layer cakes, doughnuts and cookies, and their method of mixing, which is often changed, varying in the quantities used. A good layer cake recipe may FOR THE TABLE Oyster Potpie. — One pint fresh oysters, one cup water, one tablespoon butter, salt and pepper to season: bring to a boll and add following dumplings by small spoonfuls: One cup sweet milk, t\\o teaspoons good baking powder, flour to make very stiff dough; sift baking powder into milk with part of flour needed, then gradually add flour as required until dough is stiff enough to cut off with spoon. Cover closely and stew gently and steadily until potpie is done. If necessary to remove lid do not replace It. I find this is the secret of making light potpie. About fifteen minutes should be allowed for cooking. Swedish Buns—Work one tablespoon butter into one pound bread dough; roll out one-fourth Inch in thickness, spread with a little butter, a generous layer of sugar and small seeded raisins or currants and a sprinkling of cinnamon; roll dough snugly and evenly, cut into slices one Inch thick, place on buttered pan and let rise to double their sire; bake and cover with Icing. Steamed Apple Pudding—Two cups flour, one-half teaspoon salt, two tea spoons baking powder, two table spoons butter rubbed through the flour. Pare and cut into dice three medium-sized apples and stir through flour mixture. Add one well-beaten egg and three-fourths cup milk. Mix well and steam two hours in covered mold. Serve hot with the following sauce: One tablespoon each melted butter and flour, one-half cup sugar, yolk of one egg. Beat well and add slow'ly one cup warm water and one [cup rich sweet milk or cream. Cook until- smooth and flavor with two drops almond extraet. FJsh with Turkey Dressing (a new dish)—We are very tired of fish, espe cially herring, but I got tired of al ways frying them the old way, so I tried a new way and we think it fine. Take two nice, large fresh herring, clean and pull out bones; lay one out flat and lay in as much dressing as it T«L 1740 Mht. w. (740 Mkt. SEE THE PANAMA CANAL BEFORE THE WATER IS LET IN.

I use a well seasoned turkey dressing Cover both sides well with flour and a little salt, put a little butter in the pan and bake till well done. Pretzelettes—Half pound each of flour and sugar, yolks of two eggs, two tablespoons sour cream, one ta blespoon coriander seed. Mix to a stiff dough, roll pieces of dough and shape into pretzelettes, bake in mod erate oven to a light brown. Just be fore baking is finished, brush over with a thin starch made by boiling two tablespoons cornstarch mixed smooth with a little water and sprinkle well with coarse salt; this gives a glossy surface. THINGS WORTH KNOWING To fasten cover on ironing ooaiu, use thumb tacks. They keep the cover down firm and are fastened and removed much quicker than any other way. When thumb tacks are not in use, keep them in a cork, where they will always stay till ready for use. If Ink becomes thick in bottom of bottle, add strong tea, shake bottle well and ink is as good as new. If suffering from neuralgia of the head, placing a mustard plaster on the back of the neck will give relief; or, if neuralgia is in the face, plac ing one on the elbow will relieve. For Women Travelers—Get 1V4 yards thin black china silk three fourths yard wide. Sew together to form a bag and run a hem casing In top through which cord or ribbon may bo run. In this you may placo hat, veil, gloves, etc., where they will be free from dust and, by the drawstring, hung up out of the way. When you are at your journey's end fold up bag and tuck it away In handbag, where it takes up very little room. To clean nickel on stove pour a little ammonia on flannel rag, rub quickly, then polish off with soft cloth. I find nothing equals ammo nia for cleaning nickel. When Cleaning Spots—Take the garment that is to be cleaned, and if j there are spots on it, run a thread j around them so as to be able to find j them easily after the garment is wet | and the spots not apparent. CORRECT SIZE OF COOKIES, _AS SUGGESTED BY JIMMY CURRANT COOKIES One cupful of sugar, two scant cup fuls of flour, four tablespoonfula of butter, two eggs, one scant teaspoon ful of baking powder, one cupful of cleaned currants chopped fine, nut meg and cinnamon to taste.

Roll out with quick, l'ght strokes. Cut into shapes and bake in a tolerably brisk oven. They are better the second day after baking than the first. PEANUT COOKIES Cream together four tablespoonfula of butter and a half cup of sugar.

As a two-layer cake, which makes rather thick layers, but a much better cake and not so tmieh filling; where more of the latter Js, desired make three or four layers of cake. It is also baked in a Ipng pan, which will allow the cake to rise to about two Inches in height, frosted, halves of nuts placed at regular in tervals, and cut in squares, so the nut comes in the centre of each one. This same layer cake dough may be baked in all kinds of patty or gem pans, the top cut off, scooped out and filled with any fancy nut filling'; cover replaced and frosted all over and dec orated for the holidays with a touch of red and green. I will give a recipe from my Card Index Cooking Recipes, as I have never found a better or more reliable one, and many variations may be made with this dough. Use only the best materials for cake and have all materials ready before beginning the mixing. Xote—Flour always sifted before measuring. Measurements level; fat packed in the cup: t., tablespoon; tsp., teaspoon; c., cup. Lftyrr Cake. Materials—Pastry flour, 2H c.; but ter, 14 c.; water, 1 c.; sugar, 1*4 c.: whites of eggs, 4; baking powder, J>4 tsp.; flavoring, 1 tsp. Utensils—Two bowls, measuring cup, measuring spoon, slotted wood en spoon, egg beater, spatula and cake cooler. Directions—Measure the butter in to the larger bowl and beat with the Blotted spoon to a cream. Gradually add the given amount of sugar, beat ing all the time. Measure the Iuke warm water and alternate In adding to the mixture with the flour. Then beat well from three to five minutes. Beat the whites of the eggs stiff, add and sprinkle over them the baking powder and flavoring. Now cut and fold these In, but do not beat. Bako a moderate over, until raised to full height. Then Increase the temper ature for baking and browning. Too slow an oven makes a coarse grained cake and too hot an oven allows the cake to bake before it has had a chance to rise. Cake baking is a science. Science is an exact know ledge. Know the very best ways of doing, follow your recipe accurately and have a knowledge of the laws of heat, as applied to the cake in the oven, and with sufficient practise suc cess Is assured. Never remove a cake from the pan, but stand it on the cake cooler until perfectly cold. Use as few utensils as possible to insure good work.

I am deluged with letter* asking me if I believe in using powder. I certinly do; every actress does. But there are ways and waysr'flS using powder. A very litle powder on one's face to dry any perspiration that is there makes the complexion much clearer and cleaner looking If you use a good quality of powder that has no lead or bismuth hi it, ft will not harm your skin in the least. 1 have never seen a fine complexion on a woman who does not use powder. I have never understood why women who do not use powder should plume themselves so much on it. They certainly do not look as well as those women whose "powder-rag" they hold in contempt. However, you have all seen the woman who looks as though fhe had stuck her head in a flour barrel. Her eyebrows, her ear* and the comers of her mouth are all of the white flakes. This woman is too indifferent and slovenly to keep herself well groomed, and she is the kind of wonuul who makes sensible people object to powder on the face. There is no more reason why you should not use art in your taaai make-up than in your .living. All actresses are artists in “make-up;” they have to be: but the make up for the stage and the make-up for the light of the streets are vary different. Very few young girls need rouge of any kind and they should leave that for the older woman who has lost the exquisite tints of youth. . .a If you arc going to use powder be sure that you use the right color One famous French manufacturer makes twelve different shades. For the average skin use a powder tinted some shade of delicate pink or if your skin is creamy use a powder that has a tiny bit of ocre in It, Never use white powder. Almost ail of the ■•flesh” powder sold is tos pink. If, however, you will mix with the flesh tint a box of the white you will get about the right tint, or you can mix the flesh with the yellow tinted powder if you are a brunette. Tou must try these until you gal one that is just the right shade. After you have gotten this to your satisfaction, you are ready to begin your make-up. Wash your face in water as hot as you can bare your hand. Dry by rubbing upward with a rather rough towel. Now rub some good cold cream all over your face and neck and wipe it off lightly. Dip a wad of absorbent cotton in the powder and rub a generous supply all over your face and throat. Rub this in with your hands; then put on another sap* ply. Dress your hair and get yourself ready to go out, all but putting on your wraps. Now take a clean piece of cotton and dust any superfluous powder from your face and neck; wipe out your ears carefully: brush out your eyebrows and rub a tiny bit of cold cream on your lipa If your fgoe is free from pimples and blackheads, you will find, after this treatment, that it will look like a baby’s. When you wish to take the powder off ai night, do. It with oold cream before washing.
