Linking School With the Farm
In Farm and Fireside a writer tells
of the interesting achievement of the
high school at Hamburg., Now York,
In placing real agricultural work
within the reach of boys and girls.
As a result of this, seven out of every
ten male students that nre graduated
from the Hamburg High School take
UP farming as a living.
* "Hamburg,” we read, "is in the cen
ter of a very rich agricultural district
ou which Buffalo's half-million per
sons depend to a big extent for their
farm-'produce. Last June graduates
from all departments of the school
numbered seventeen, and all boys of
tbs Class but one Intend to take up
farming for a living.
"The good effect of the course on
students Is reflected in the increased
attendance at school for the full term
from September to June. Since the
course was started not one pupil

Not Buying Jewels in London
London jewelers are being nearly
ruined by the war. No one is buying
so much as a safety pin these days.
Some of the fashionable gem mer
chants are threatening to go to New
y0rk. It is said in London that in
America the diamond trade is better
than it ever was, but the same can t
be said of London. Before the war
London used to glitter with jewels.
Now they are all sealed in private
.safes, the real Jewels as well as the
imitations of valuable pieces which
every peeress has. The custom is to
wear the real thing only on the most
auspicious occasions.
I am told that Lady Granard sent
all her Jewels to a place that 1 mustn t

Chemists Replace Cooks
By German government order Sun
days and Wednesdays are the only
lays exempt from the new restrictions
on the use of meat. German news
papers publish schedules prepared by
the German Federal Council control
ing the consumption of meat. The
announcement Is made that meat sup
plies must be conserved. The sched
ule. as forwarded by Reuter's Am
sterdam correspondent. Is as follows:
Mondays and Thursdays: Restau
rants shall offer no meat, fish, fowl
or dishes cooked In lard, bacon or
Tuesdays and Fridays: Butchers
shall sell no raw or cooked meats.
Saturdays: Pork shall not be sold.
Thus far no restriction on the cook
ing of meat in the home has been
placed by the Federal Council.
Copies of German papers Just re
ceived contain some tempting offers
of chemical food which the public is
asked to purchase. Some of those ap
peals follow:
‘‘Certain Sale!—Artificial omelets;
artificial butter. Chemical honey and
marmalade. Artificial coffee and milk
In any quantities. Packets made up
ready t>r sale at 10 to 20 pfennigo
(two and four cents). Ritterstrasse,
“Chemical Food is the modern food.

“Egg Powder—To replace natural
eggs. Each packet is equal to two
eggs for a penny. Millions of packets
have already been sold. Trade mark,

“Starch Syrup—Immense nutritive
power. In casks of eight or nine hun
dredweight, at Kaleck's, Charlotten
str&8B6 76
"To replace natural eggs in the kit
chen, write to Levin, chemist, who
will send receipts and explanations
for 10 marks ($2.50).”
The prize, perhaps, should be given
to Ludwig Holzappel of Leipzig, for
the following:
“The cheapest meat for concentra
tion camps, large establishments, etc.,
is whale’s meat, which is very
nourishing and rich in albuminous
substances. Barrels of a hundred

How She Solved the Problem of a Lac<
Coat for the Smart Negligee.
One of my ancestors must hav<
been a, luxury-loving pagan. There
are times when I want to be .<
drone, when every particle of ambi
tion takes a hasty flight, and all thal
I want to do is to "doll up” in a
pretty negligee, stretch myself out 01
a couch all comfy with pillows, reac
frivolous literature and eat chocolate;
that cost $1.60 a pound.
The spirit of this lackadaisica
progenitor entered my subconsclou;
being last week, and I was blissfull}
lazy for three days.
What Inspired her to Insist upor
inhabiting my being was the fact thal
I had recently finished a darling of a
negligee. It is all pink and croarr
with trimmings of ribbon and FrencI
roses, Just tho kind of garment hei
extravagant soul must have dotec
I made it from the "usable left
overs” from two dance frocks
Cicely’s and mine plus some rini
chiffon bought at a sale.
Cicely’s frock donated enough shell
pink satin to make a tight-fittinf
short-walsted bodice. I had to mak<
the neckline low and rounded becaus;
of the scarcity of the satin. There
was also a strip of lace flouncins
left from the same frock, and I usee
a portion of it to make a collar aboul
tho decolletage.
Then I had the pink chiffon skirl
accordion-pleated, and after stitching
the ends together I made a seam ur
the center hack and attached it tc
*he bodice.
To bo really smart nowadays negli
gees must have a laco coat which can
vary in length from a short jacket
to a long length which extends nearly
to the hem.
I had plenty of cream-colored net,
so I concluded that a coat of this
transparent material edged with the
balance of the lace from Cicely’s
dress would make a stunning addition
to the negligee.
First I made a full kimono bodice
of the net and trimmed the armholes
with frills of the same material. Then
I gathered this to a. skirt of the net
cut to flare in a graceful manner.
To the extreme edgo of the coat 1
stitched the border of lace and
finished tho neckline with a long, flat
collar of the same trimming.
To each side of the front 1 attached
a piece of black velvet ribbon, which
serves to fasten the coat when tied
in a. bow with long ends.
No boudoir gown is complete with
out a garnishing of French posies, so
I added compact little buncheR of
pink, blue, mauve and yellow blos
soms to the sleeves and bodice.
The completed negligee was so ex
quisite that I found none of my
boudoir caps would correspond with
it. This meant that I had to make
First I took a snug, tight-fitting
cap of tho net and trimmed it with
hands of lace insertion placed at
even intervals radiating from the
crown. Then I added a. frill of lace
about the edge so that it falls softly
over the hair. A bouquet of flowers
completes the cop, and I have a
boudoir outfit lovely enough for a
fairy princess.
No wonder my dormant streak of
laziness demanded Indulgence when it
saw such a fascinating creation.

The feet are too conspicuous under
i the extremely short skirt no.t to be

reason n variety of shoes is almost
a necessity. Each costume demands
that the feet be dressed to harmonize,
or to supply a pleasing contrast to
the color scheme. This being true, the
shops show an infinite variety of
street and house shoes in all colors
and forms.

j The barnyard of Farmer Hicks was
close by a river, and one morning
when gray hen and white hen were
out for a walk it began to rain.
| They were close to ft river and a
boat with an awning over It was by
tho bank, so they hopped Into It,
thinking the rain would soon be over
and they would go home.
"What shall we do for supper?”
asked white hen.
i "Here is a can of worms," replied
gray hen, "and these seats are Just
the place for us to roost. I think we
are very lucky. People live In house
boats. Why shouldn’t we?"
They nto their supper and went to
sleep. The next morning they were
awakened hy the rooster crowing and
gray hen flew up on the sido of the
boat. "Goodness me!" she exclaimed,
jumping down to the bottom of the
"What is the matter?" asked white
hen, as she stretched her neck and
spread her wings trying to shake off
the sleepy feeling.
“We cannot get to the land,” said
gray hen. "The boat has drifted
away from tho bank."
"What will become of us?” asked
white hen.
Before gray hen could think of any
answer Madam Duck and her family
were seen swimming toward them.
Madam Duck hurried hack to tho
barnyard. "What do you think," she
said to the turkeys. "White hen and
gray hen have taken a houseboat for
the summer.”
When the rooster heard this he
flapped hiR wings and ran down to
the edge of the pond.
"Come back!” he called to them.
"You will be drowned, and if you are
not, how will you get anything to
“We have taken this houseboat for
the summer,” answered gray hen; "do
not fret about us; wo have plenty to
Just then a breeze struck the boat
and off they went with all the ham
yard fowl standing on the bank
watching them.
"Well, who ever heard of such a
thing!" said Madam Duck. "Gray
hen always was a proud creature, and
white lien thinks her family a little
above the rest of us because her fam
ily are so white.”
Just then the farmer eame along
with tlielr breakfast and called them.
While they were eating the farmer
saw the boat, and as the water was
not very deep lie waded out Into the
pond and brought the boat to the
Gray hen and white hen flew out
and ran toward the place where the
others were eating.
They ate with such greediness that
the rooster looked at them suspi
“You didn’t have any corn aboard
your houseboat, did you?” he asked.
Gray hen looked at him disdain
fully. "It is plain you were never
aboard a houseboat," she answered.
“They never carry corn; they carry
worms—and such big ones, I wish you
might have seen them.”
“Why did you land?” asked the
duck. “I thought you had taken the
boat for the summer.”
"We changed our plans,” said gray
hen. ’’The boat sprang a leak and
while we like to sail we do not care
to get our feet wet, as some of our
neighbors do.”
The gray hen looked at Madam
Duck's webbed feet in a way that
made her try to hide behind a bush.
White hen promised she would keep
the secret, but she kept away from

to get aboard the boat again just to
make her story of the houseboat seem
