Will you kindly let me know If
there is any way to get a small grease
spot out of a new tan shoe? I also
have a sutln flftish brass bed which
is getting dark and rusty. I wonder
if a reader could let me know how to
clean it? MRS. E. T.
No doubt by this time the grease

powdered French chalk or fullers’

Thin Hair and Dry Skin
Dear Miss Doon:
Kindly advise me what to die with
my hair. It is getting very thin. It
<■ very light and I would like to
know a good tonic that will Increase
the growth of the hair and yet not
injure it. Also what can I use on
ray skin so that powder will not make
It appear rough? Thanking you In
advance, E. S.
Brush the hair thoroughly every
night, with long, even strokes. 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.
If the ends are split and apparently
lifeless, it Mould be a good idea to
have them singed by a professional.
At night when you wash your face,
rub in a little good cold cream. Let
remain a minute or two, then wash
with . warm and rinse with cold
water. This will keep the skin
smooth and soft.
MRS. C.~Have heard from no one
as yet regarding a stove to give away.
I do hope you will get one soon, and
will let you know if I hear.

7703—Seuii-Princesse Gown, 34 to 44
A SMART AND SERVICEABLE
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. It will be
mailed to any address by „ the fashion
department of this paper on receipt
of ten cents.

ways specify size wanted.
“The character of all work depends

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
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
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

ring and pin both together around the
edges with toothpicks. 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.

fold up bag and tuck it away In
handbag, where it takes up very little
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.

ON ONE OF BEAUTY’S DEBTS 1
BY BILLIE BURKE.
THE FIRST WORD—How much beauty owe* to the gamier pal!
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
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.
JUST ONE LAST WORD—It takes very little to transform am
ngly gtrl lata a beauty.
