Brief Beauty Hints Cold cream rubbed over the hand* and arms before going into the water for the first time, will prevent un pleasant sunburn. Cream may be rubbed into the face and neck also, a dusting of talcum powder being put; on top to remove the shiny appear- , a nee. Shampoo the hair regularly once a week if a aalt water bath is taken every day. Salt water makes the hair dry and brittle and causes it to streak in spots unless carefully washed out at least once a week and the hair and scalp kept clean and soft. If you are apt to freckle, wear a bathing suit and a boating dress with sleeves to the wrist and a collar ris ing high at least at the back, writes a contributor to the Camden Dally Courier. A bad case of summer freckles will sometimes last a whole lifetime, yielding to no treatment, however strenuous, and will com pletely spoil the arms and neck for the wearing of evening dress. Rub cold cream Into the palms of the hands at night unless you want horny palms, calloused below the fingers from handling golf sticks, tennis bat and oars. If the glare of light makes you squint, swallow your pride and wear dark glasses when on the water or on the sands on very bright days. The glasses, worn for a short time, will not be half as unbecoming as fine wrinkles around the eyes for a life time. Tennis is an active game and calls for loose clothing. Nothing is more unsightly than a woman essaying the long jumps, reaches, bending and stooping of ten nis, clad in a too tight skirt and bod ice. Wear a skirt sufficiently wide and a very loose blouse over a firmly fas tened brassiere unless you care to make a spectacle of yourself for be holders. How Customs Change. If some of the notables of ancient times were living now how differently they would act! Noah would charter an ocean liner, N'ero would step Into the parlor and turn on the phonograph, while Rome burned and the heathen raged. Ben Hur would pilot a 80-horsepower rac ing car and spin around saucer tracks. Jason would hire the great detective to find the Golden Fleece, instead of going after it himself. Icarus would mount to the sun In a Bleriot monoplane without fear of its wings melting off. Napoleon would invade Russia in a Pullman palace car. Demosthenes would go on the Chautauqua circuit. Cain would plead circumstantial evidence, self defense and emotional Insanity. Shampooing Rugs and Carpets is iu*t what the word implies. A thorough washing, scouring and scrubbing of the rug or carpet, using a harmless, suddy compound and working it right down to the warp. This loosens alt soil and smut, and the suction tool of a vacuum machine removeg all of this, leaving the fabric free and clean. Abso lutely harmless to the finest silk rug.

IHOUSEKEEPERS EXCHANCEI _BY MARGERY DOON_| Dear Margery Doon: Some time ago—several months— there was an article on your page about making buttermilk at home. I read It, but did not pay a great deal of attention to it, and now I have been told to drink a quart of buttermilk every day. Do you think you can find the article? I thought perhaps you might have It in the die to which you sometimes refer. Will greatly appreciate the favor if you will reprint it. Am sending you my recipe for quince marmalade. You have pub lished several lately, but none for quince. Will watch for the butter milk article. DIET. Quince Marmalade Take as many quinces as you re quire. Rub them well with a cloth. Cut them In quarters, core them, but do not peel. Place them in a saucepan and Just cover them with water. Stew them for several hours, until the fruit is quite tender, then rub through a sieve. To every two cupfuls of pulp add one pound of lump sugar. Return to the pre serving pan and boil gently for one hour, stirring continually. Then bot tle and seal. Am glad to have the quince mar malade recipe. Thank you. After a long search I found the article, which. I think, is the one in which you are interested. It was in the morning paper, not the Eve ning Star Here it is: On Making Buttermilk You can make the buttermilk at I home by churning milk, but I advise you to see if It isn't possible to find some dairy where butter is made, in order that you can obtain the genu ine article fresh from the churn. It will be very tedious making it at home in the quantities you desire. I know there are dairies from which buttermilk can be obtained that is very beneficial for those suffering from stomach trouble. I hope you will be able to locate one of these places. You can make the buttermilk' from junket tablets or liquid rennet, which you can purchase in any drug store. There is also on the market a tablet manufactured by the large pharmaceutical houses for the pur pose of making a chemical butter milk. Ask your physician about these Probably some of our readers will be able to help you out. Perhaps some of you, who are lucky enough to get fresh mush rooms occasionally, will be glad to have thlrf recipe: Broiled Mushrooms The larger kinds are required for dressing in this way and are the most suitable for serving at break fast. They should be carefully picked so as to be free of grit; the peel must be taken off and the stalk cut short—do not pull it out Place them on a gridiron rubbed with butter, adding salt and pepper when both sides are done; set them on a hot dish, and in the centre of each put a small piece of butter aJid a squeeze of lemon Juice; put the dish for a minute or two into the oven, or let It stand before the fire. Serve very hot. Doll’s Museum a Sight of Paris I____ A unique institution is the dolls’ j museum in the Trocadero in Paris. These dolls have, of course, a purpose in life, since otherwise they would be given official quarters. They are almost functionaries in their dignity, while the gorgeousness of their cloth ing would shame even the most decorated official. They stand for na tional and provincial types. This one wears the costume of Alsace that of Brittany or Lorraine. Here is a Sia mese doll, there an Egyptian. It is a gallery of great human interest. Anecdotes touching or amusing per tain to some dolls. In one corner of the museum is a collection of Balkan dolls. Last year a young and pretty • Parisienne, who had married a Bul garian, brought to the museum a number of dolls that she had snatched, as it were, from the battle field. She had gone to Join her hus band, “called to the colors," and when she arrived he was dead—killed in battle or assassinated by roving bands pf the enemy, A few. day* later an Infant was born. Fleeing the country that had now become unbearable, the widow ar rived In Paris, and carried to Mile. Marie Koenig, who Is the founder of the Musee des Poupees, a number of beautiful dolls In Balkan costumes. J5ven In her troubles she had not forgotten the Interesting and delight ful dolls' museum at home. Mile. Koenig Ib tne good mother of the little inhabitants under the roof of the Trosadero. She takes a per sonal pride in her charges, knows their individual history. This group here, in fine silks, precious embroid eries and rich brocades, stand tor such as swayed society when society had time to be swayed by delicate fingered, perfumed chatelaines. Danc er* from Seville, Venetians, cowboys, Argentines, redskin bravest and their squaws, Auvergates, and Paris belles in “hobble skirts.” It is a strange and motley crew, drawn from all the ages, representing all the races. Some are dwarfs, others are giants, some beautiful, others astonishingly ugly. (Continued from yesterday.) On flew the train that was lak ! ing the dear Dear family to their seashore home. Green fields, shady woods and sunny streams loomed into view, paused a moment and faded into the distance. “Look at that boat, full of boys and girls." Dorothy would cry ex citedly, but when Davie would turn his head to look the bout would be quite out of sight A little later Davie would say: "There’s a funny cow with only one horn.” "Where, where." Dorothy would cry, and Davie would answer In a disgusted tone. “It’s gone now." The children liked the swift mo tion very much. They were very happy, for ahead of them were many long summer days, days to be spent on the shore In the sun shine, paddling and bathing, dozing and finding shells. Dorothy won dered if the old life-saving boat, which had been abandoned years back, would still be lying upside down on the beach. It was dark and coo] under that boat and a splen did place to play robber-cave. One could run around to Its other side and wriggle underneath on one’s stomach, and the other boys and girls could never find one unless they happened to know of their hiding place. One day Dorothy and Mary Eliz abeth hid under the boat for two hours, while Davie and Billy hunted and hunted. And when at last the boys ran up the beach and back to the dear Dear house, convinced that the girls had been swallowed up by the sea, Dorothy and Mary Elizabeth crawled out, shaking the damp sand from their clothes, vast ly please at the excitement they had caused. ’’We’ll do it again. If the boat's still there.” said Dorothy with a smile, unconsciously speaking aloud. "What?” Instantly demanded Davie, and Dorothy jumped. "O, er n-nothtng,” said she, hastily, trying not to laugh. “I was just thinking of something." “Must ’a’ been pretty funny,” said Davie. He meant to coax until he found out, but the train pulled into a sta tion just then and Davie became very busy trying to watch busy bag gage men lift luggage into waiting trucks: people rush forward to greet the summer visitors who steppedout of the train; stage drivers call out the names of the various hotels to which they would take everybody who wanted to go, and all of the other sights that make a summer resort railway station one of the most fascinating places in the world. A girl with a white dress and a sunburnt face smiled and waved her hand at Dorothy. "Hello!” called Davie, anxious to receive some attention too. And just then a little boy in a white suit stopped rolling his hoop to stand on the platform and stick his red tongue out at Davie as far as it could possibly go. “What a naughty boy!" exclaimed mother Dear. She glanced at Davie and gave a little gasp, for that young man s tongue was also stick ing out and waving from side to side like a little red flag. "Davie!” cried mother Dear, hor rified. Davie pulled in his tongue. "Well, he stuck his out first, too. Look at him now." "The little boy in the white suit was dancing up and down, decidedly pleased because Davie nau been rep rimanded. "Ya, ya! Ya. ya! Glad of it! Glad of it!" he cried, waving his arms. His hoop dropped from his hand sm^- rolled away. The little boy sprang after it. but it rolled from Hie platform onto the track, right under the train. The little boy started after It. but a man yanked him back, saying: "D'ye mint to be killed? You wait'll the train gets away, and then s'ou can get your old hoop." "I.emme lone!" screamed the boy, kicking with all Ills might. He whs si ill kicking and screaming when the train pulled out, and mother Dear leaned back with a sigh of relief. "What a disagreeable child. ' she suid. "Disagreeable- fiend, you mean, corrected father Dear. And then he turned sternly to Davie. "No more sticking out of your tongue." said he severely, "if I catch you doing It again, I'll—I'll— well, vou'll find out what I'll do.” "Yes, sir," suid Davie meekly^ But he wasn’t meek inside, fer as soon as he got a chance he mut tered to Dorothy: ••Well, that boy DID stick hts tongue out first, und I Just had to, didn't I?"

When girls are at school they are taught all kinds of subjects that are not a bit of use to them when they grow up. and very often ordinary, everyday occupations, such as letter writing, are absolutely neglected. In an office a girl soon acquires the set business phrases in which official letters are couched, but her private correspondence Is seldom either well worded or interesting. It generally consists of "I-I-r* or "you-you-you," or a series of questions to which an swers are not expected. Ini both friendly and bualness let ters the address is written or printed at the right-hand top corner of the paper, and Immediately under this the date is inserted. Few women realize how essential the filling in of the date is. It might cause no end of bother if you left It off a business communication. The opening phrase of a letter de pends, of course, on how well you know your correspondent. "Dear -" is formal, and would natural ly be softened to “My dear-" when writing to a friend. Never begin with that terrible stock-phrase, "I hope you are quite well”—never begin wdth "I” at all. Thank your correspondent for her last communication in such words as, "Your last letter gave me much pleasure," or "Thank you so much,” etc. It is no longer smart to use tinted, perfumed stationery with fancy let tered address and monograms, neither is it good form to use thick paper with rough edges. The best station ery is now exceedingly thin and stiff, and, excepting for the stamped block lettered address, perfectly plain.— Camden Daily Courier. __ ' HEALTH AND BEAUTY HINTS Oily hands may be made comfort able by wetting them once or twice a day while clean with cologne, al cohol or toilet vinegar. Bismuth is the most rapid and effectual cure for chafing. One or two applications will be suf ficient in the worst cases. Do not forget that a woman who | smiles will have a skin more free I from wrinkles than the woman who I knits her brows. __ Clover tea is admirable for purifying the blood, for removing pimples and whitening the complexion and has also good repute as a sleep inducing draft. It is said that clear complexions wait upon the consumption of oranges. They do much to keep the di gestion in order and nothing makes the skin so clear and fresh as a good digestion. To Cut Down the Meat Bill There’s twice as much nourishment in a pound of macaroni as in a pound of steak, and it costs one-half as much. Here, then, is one way to reduce the cost of living. We depend, as a rule, on foods rich in fat, sugar and starch to supply us our energy, and on meat and the cereals to reconstruct our broken down body cells. Macaroni will do both for us. There are many simple and delicious ways of serving it. Probably most people like it best whem prepared with cheese. In this form it is sufficiently nutritious to constitute a meal. Tow to Mend Hot Water Bag | To mend a small leak In a hot water bag have the bag perfectly dry. blow a little air into it. and cork tightly. Then place a good-sized piece of fresh mending tissue over the hole, a piece of black silk over the tissue and a damp cloth over this. Hold a warm iron lightly on the cloth until the heat melts the tissue, so that it will adhere to the rubber. Remove the damp cloth and let dry. Paper Napery Paper towels lessen the work of the laundry, and the new ones that cost fifty cents a hundred combine strength, absorbency and softness to such a degree that they are splendid substitutes for linen ones. After they are used they still can he utilized for polishing purposes before finally being burned. A clean one is excellent for absorbing the excess grease from doughnuts and other fried foods. An extra heavy dinner napkin is now made of paper that is so tough it can be uaed many times before it will show any signs of wearing out. This saves a great heap of napkins from the weekly laundry. And before they are thrown away these napkins can be utilized for cleaning windows, brass, metal ware and the kitchen range. What He Did Know One day Johnny was digging pota toes, when a man came along the road. The man was surprised to see Johnny working so hard. Then he asked, "Johnny, what do you get for digging those potatoes?"

I am going on a sea trip to Florida, and am afraid I’ll he sick all the time and won’t have a good time. Thanking you, VOYAGER. An old sailor says that one of the best preventatives is to nibble dried herring. It is claimed this salt fish not only cures the terrible sickness, but creates a healthy appetite for food, which can be retained on the stomach. It has been successfully tried numerous times. It is not bad medicine to take and is worth a trial, especially after being rec ommended by a sailor. The following article on seasick ness appeared in Leslie’s Magazine some time ago: “Prepare for your .journey a week or so ahead, by eat ing simple, plain foods, and avoid as far as possible sweets, sours, fats and condiments. Spend as much of the time on shipboard as possible, in the open air, walking or reclining. See to it, particularly, that you are wartply clad. One in clined to seasickness always feels a sense of chilliness about the ex tremities. Carry a hot water bag --7 Hereafter ae letter will be an swered unless accompanied by tbs name and address of tho writer. This Is not for publication, but ao , an evidence of rood faith on tbs part of tho sender. Write only on one side of tho paper. Readers are requested not to en, .close stamps, as the editor Is far too busy to write personal replies. and hold It in your lap or put tt at your back or feet while sitting. Set that your steamer rug covers your feet, and keep it in the sun shine. If you still feel chilly move to a warmer place in the library, reading-room or saloon. “For breakfast take a simple, warm drink such as you prefer, either coffee, cocoa or tea, with a „ bit of dry toast, a baked apple, an orange or stewed prunes, but not the latter if they are sweet. For lunch take a slice of roast beef, lamb or mutton, cold or warm, with no fat. A piece of toast with hot, red gravy is also easily digested; you can arrange with your table steward to get It. Mashed pota toes or boiled rice, with stewed fruit (the latter you will always find on the German steamers) should com plete the meal. If you are not hun gry eat little. For your evening meal follow the same simple menu that you had at lunch. It is a good thing before you retire, and also when you awaken in the morning, to drink a glass of French vichy, taking about ten minutes to do it. If you like it hot, all the better. "If, in spite of this plain diet, you have no appetite, and feel dis tressed, ask the steward to toast a couple of soda biscuits so brown that they will seem almost burned. Nibble at these until you feel bet ter. The toasted biscuits will taste like popcorn. When you can eat nothing else you will find that your stomach will retain them and you will want something more substan tial. Then try a piece of lean roast beef, a bit of chop or steak. I have found this treatment effective evgn in cases of severe seasickness. The soda biscuits must be thoroughly browned and no liquid taken with them. Reject the overtures of all friends who insist that you should - suck a lemon, drink a glass of champagne, ale or porter. Keep warm and In the open air, eat sim ply and little and your seaslcknesa will disappear.—Leslie’s.” To Clean a Veil Dear Margery Doon: -r Please tel) me how to clean a pale pink automobile veil, and win the thanks of MILLIE. Soak the veil in gasoline for ten minutes, rubbing the soiled places gently between the palms of the hands- Rinse in clean gasoline and hang in the air to dry. Do not use gasoline in a warm room, or near a fire, or even where there is a lighted gas Jet. It Is highly inflammable. I Smart neckwear Is something every woman loves. It adds so much to a bodice that we can scarcely afford to omit it in our wardrobe. High-waisted effects and bibs on blouses simulating deep girdles are ever increasing in popularity, eays the Camden Dally Courier. * . The middy blouse—many middy blouses, to be exact—are reminded for the summer wardrobe of the young girl. The lace dress is the ideal summer gown and the shops show most at tractive lace flounclngs at prices that put them within the reach of the eco nomical dresser. The use of hand embroidery to em bellish a frock is a demand of the season. Taffeta and silk frocks, as well as linen and cotton, are given distinguishing touch by this means All the hew suit coats are short — so short in fact they reach very lit tle below the waistline, and many show soft plaits confined by a belt at sides and back. Quite the smartest fabrics for making these suits are taffeta and moire. Then there are the fine French serges and gabardines In navy blue, and not to have one suit of navy blue is to be out of fashion this season. Cotton duvetyn and linen make chic summer suits. Special Boudoir Corsets There are special lounging corsets for the boudoir which give a more graceful lino to the clinging negligee than would be possible were the negli gee worn over any but a faultless figure. Many women have presentable uncoraeted figures when standing erect, but a boudoir gown Is for lounging and no one wants to look "sloppy” 1n an exquisite, clinging negligee of silk and lace. Hence the boudoir corset, which is of soft, woven silk mesh, almost boneless, and much shorter than the corset worn with formal gowns. Borne of these boudoir corsets are mere "slip-ons” with no bones at all. They are drawn on, over the feet, and cling snugly over the hips and thighs, holding the abdomen In a flat l line even when the figure lounges. A Door Spring If you have a screen door that slams In the wind attach to It, by means of a hook screwed Into the middle wood slat In the door, a small coil spring. Fasten the other end of the coil spring into a screw hook placed in the door casing on a straight line with the one in the middle of the screen. Such a spring will hold a screen in place perfectly, is easy to attach, and the cost next to nothing.

Charming bowed gracefully and asked her to be the bride of the king. “But before I marry the king you must do three things for me,” she said.
