JAPAN, BALKANS AND PARIS LEND AID TO HATS >priUK bonnets especial! y posed for this paper. New Creations in Millinery for Spring and Summer Wear Will Abandon the Mark of Tailor-made and Droop in Graceful Lines—Colors Will Predominate. Influence at work in three quarters of the globe will tend vitally to af fect the spring and summer styles in women’s hats. Japan, the Balkan region, aiftl Paris each will add its little touch to the natural taste of the American woman to make the •bonnot of the Homing season the most artistic and soul-satisfying in years. Japan, with its increased cultiva tion of hemp, and consequent Hood ing of the market with that cheap and useful material lias "brought about the determination that most ol' the season's hats will he of hemp. The material will have the elements of real modisliness. for in spite of its relative low cost it will be used in the more expensive hats .in place of Milan braid, pressed Panama and Begborn straws, although these beau tiful materials will by no means be neglected. Their appeal is independ ent of any club and flow of fashion’s tide. The Balkan region lias a double effect on the season’s bonnet. The flowing, easy styles which wiy “pre vail in gowns, copied after the Bul garian mode, will he reflected in the hats, which will lose their close, tailor-made lines and assume a droop ing effect, more especially as sum mer approaches, and tender com plexions require more protection than the upturned brim or no brim at all affords. y In color, too, the Balkan fervor of hue is to he seen. Tills is to be a big colored season. The whites and blacks ut" tUo early season. In keep ing with tlie tailor-made styles, will follow the trend to grace In shapes by assuming n great variety of rich and mellow colors. Royal, kings and Copenhagen blues, linen, gold, old gold, brass, and the new melrose pink, a shade darker than cerise, will be found. White, as usual, will have a certain popularity during the sum mer months. Tlie exuberance of color and grace of shape will lie followed in decora tions, which will be markedly In formal. In contrast with the severity of winter styles. Small flowers of all kinds will bo in good taste, while ostrich plumes and bird -of-paradise feathers will appeal to those who yearn for ornamentation from the bird world. Paris, too, will have its little say in a tendency toward smaller crowns. The reason for this is not that Paris decries the present head-fitting and ear-covering mode, but that Parlsi ennes are wearing less artificial hair than before and hence require less capacity in the hat crown. American women are following the same prac tise in keeping with the general trend toward naturalness and away from a formal artificiality. Hats, then, for tlie coming season arc to bo drooping as to brim, vari egated us to hue, natural as to deco ration, anil reasonable as to crou'n size. Women is promised an added attractiveness. Japan, tlie Balkan al lies, and Paris are to be thanked. RUSSIAN RELISHES Caviar Canapes—Cut the sandwich bread a third of an inch thick and about two incites square. Toast golden color.

THE HOUSEWIFE When white shades become spotted and will not erase as usual, use white shoe dressing on them and they will look good as new. When they get too sunburnt or worn you can have a hem put in the roller end, and just reverse them; any store that handles shades will do this at a very small cost. Sanitary Beds—To keep mattresses from getting dirty, make a cover of heavy muslin or lightweight ticking and draw over mattress. The cover can easily be removed anti washed. Instead of utting my fruit Jars away after they have been washed and scalded, I wrap each one sep arately in newspapers, which keeps them alee and clean and lessens the work a great deal during canning season. The new hats for the little girl and the little boy are charmingly simple as regards shape and trimming. Each seems to be a replica of a dualnt old bonnet, such as the child's vreat-grandmother might have worn, and Is patterned in the fascinating poke or deep-mushroom style, with a drooping or curved brim turned back from the face. They arc sensibly large hats and are made to lit the head comfortably, so thut they can not be blown off so easily by a gust of wind.—Ladles' Home Journal. Daily fashion talks-!

At nil dept. «nd dra) Men Love Pretty Hats, Billie Burke Declares BY BILLIE BURKE Have you got. your Easter hat? You would not bo a girl if you had not been thinking u lot about It before thin, and I’ll wager you have been loitering past tile shop windows and have even gone inside to try them on: Like the little girl In tho story, you had said to your self many times, "1 choose this,” al though all the time you knew that tho beautiful creation was not for you. It looked very well in the shop window, but it would be a "beast” on your head. In the splrng a young girl’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of hats, for she knows a dainty spring bonnet shadowing a pretty maid’s face is what turns tho young man’s fancy to love. This year all the hats are very small, and truly wo rnay be glad, for a small hat Is the most coquettish and captivating thing about a wom an’s costume. Big hats are stun ning to look at on the head of the other fellow’s sweetheart. They are kind of ‘‘hold-you-off’’ things, but the littlo hat always seems to "be come.” In all agos men have loved a woman In a pretty hat from tho poet of long ago who said: "Tying her bonnet under her cliin. fcllio tied my heart within" to tho up-to-date college man who makes a slang song about "the bird on Marys hat.” If you arc dark and your street dress is one that you can wear It with, try the now shade of burnt orange on your hut this spring. It looks well also on the red-haired girl. I know, because I have tried It. Don’t wear It If you are a blonde or any one of this "Titian beauties," for burnt orange takes all the life out of yellow hair. This Is going to be a spring full of color In the millinery shops. The Turkish and Bulgarian war and the Mexican insurrection ar turning all the fashion designers’ eyes toward the bright colors and primitive blend ing of them that ones sees In these countries. I saw a perfect dear of a hat yes terday of bright blue straw, very much the shape of tile “glorillnd derbies” we have been wearing this winter. Tho brim was slightly longer in the back, however, for all the hats stick out at tlic back more or less. Tlic round crown of this hat was covered with orchid purple chiffon, through which the blue straw shone, making an Indescribable tint. About the crown was a heavy bright blue ribbon band, two inches wide, bro caded with little apples and leaves. Close to the edge of the brim in front and on one side wore little bunches of satin apples, shading from apple green to pink. It was such a pretty hat that for a moment I wished my iiair was brown, so that I might wear it. The handy girl can trim her own hat this season, and, with little else than taste and needlework ability, she can have a beautiful head cov ering. Get one of the new small shapes and cover it all over with one ol' the many straw braids, or. better stilt, buy a small straw hut that will look well on you. over the crown with tightly-drawn clilffon of a color that contrasts woll with the straw, make a band of Bulgarian cross, stitch on some heavy ribbon and place at the j back a "stick up," either made of I flowers in shades of the embroidery band or of feathers Which match the I straw. We are going to wear so many bril lian accessories in the way of sushea, * hats, bows and bits uf embroiders this spring that, black and white gowns will be worn more than ever. If you have a black tailored suit be sure that you have a bright-colored hat and you will be right In fashion. Don't be afraid to wear any kind of a small bat that becomes you. It can be of the vintage of 1SS0 or 1913 and still you will be well dressed if you wear it as 'though you knew what you were doing and in the con sciousness of looking well. THINGS WORTH KNOWING The Fruit Closet—At this time of year one appreciates the convenience of carefully marked canned fruit, jams, Jellies and even jugs of grape Juico and cherry juice. This Is the way I mark mine: Got tho little rod-edged stickers with which merchants mark their goods—tho mucilage on them is good. I get tho large,r sizo and cut them In two lengthwise. This gives a lon ger space for writing. Beforo oach; batch of canned goods is put away,' paste a label on each can, giving name, of fruit and dato of your It Is put up. You will bo glad to use the oldest first when you have had some left -over, and also to know just what is inside when tho outsides are so similar. I tlnd “Blackberries. 1911,” and "Raspberries, 1913," in my fruit cup- i board; also “Apple Jell, 1911," and “Crab Jell,” 1913.” Try this. You will never do any other way. To keep curtains straight when parted, make little white muslin bags about two by three inches, fill them with sand and pin on or sew to the lower Inside edge of curtains. They will hang perfectly. ANSWERS TO INQUIRIES Rained Graham Pancakes—In one half cup lukewarm water dissolve one-half cake compressed yeast. Later in tho evening put one. quart water in gallon crock with pinch of salt and dissolved yeast from cup, stirring in graham flour enough to make stiff batter. In morning put one pint water in extra dish with one-half teaspoon soda dissolved in same. Dip out enough batter from crock into the one pint of water and thin to right consistency for cakes. Always leave out at least one-half cup batter In crock for tho next night's “setting," as that is the ''raising” for as long as you care to "run” them.
