She Learns That Checked Gingham Should Be Treated Like
Madame sat sombrely on the carv
ed "throne chair" at the far end of
the studio, looking like a queen sit
ting in judgment. Julie walked past
her, then stood still and turned around
slowly. Madame shook her head in
"I don't like the lines of the f rock

we'll go up to Miss Westlcy and talk
There being nothing more Import
ant for me to do I trotted along, cur
ious to know what Madame was going
to have changed about the frock.
Miss Ashforth had asked for a street
frock that could be tubbed. She said
that she preferred any material to
linen, so Madame suggested gingham
in a plaid design of lime green and
Miss Westley had the frock ready
for the first fitting yesterday, and as
Madame happened to be away when
Miss Ashforth came it was tried on
and sent back to the workroom. Today
Madame asked Julie to slip on the
frock that she might see wether it
was coming along all right.
Upon seeing Madame Miss Westley
"You don't like the frock. It is a
disappointment to me, too somehow
it. seems to lack smartness."
"The frock needs more trimming,"
Madame answered. "Checked ging
ham of that type ought to be treated
as if it were a plaid material of silk
or worsted. There is too much of the
plaid in this model. We must use
more of the plain green.
"In the first place, eliminate the
chemisette and collar of white organ
die. Miss Ashforth wants a setreet
frock of almost tailored lines. In its
place use a vest of plain green linen
with a turned-down collar. Extend it
several inches below the waistline,
and fasten it with coin-shaped pearl

improve the skirt 50 per cent, if you
make large 'saddle bag' pockets of
the plain green and suspend them
from the belt by means of narrow
straps, which should be cut-in-one

skirt is very good looking, it's too
"The leeves are perfect with the ex
ception of the cuffs. Instead of the
frills of organdie, finish them with
turned-back cuffs of green linen. They
should flare a trifle, and shouldn't be
more than three inches in width.
When these alterations are made the
frock will be extremely attractive. If
designed properly there's nothing
Housewife vs. Wheatless Days
Are American housekeepers keep
ing wheatless Mondays and Wednes
days in their homes? The responsi
bility of supplying the Allies in this
war with wheat until next summer
has now been shifted to her sTioulders.
The farmer and the shipper have done
their work as far as this wheat crop
is concerned. The harvest has been
gathered, an ample supply reserved
for home use, and the surplus has al
ready been shipped to Europe.
There will not be another wheat
crop until summer. From now until
then every loaf of bread that finds its
way "over there" to the home of the
burdened mother or into the out
stretched hands of a hungry child will
mean that someone here in America
has kept Wheatless Days.
And what does this mean?
It means first of all that no wheat
cereals are served at breakfast.
Do not serve rolls muns, hot cakes,
or any kind of bread containing wheat
flour for this entire day. Most of the
so-called war breads or Liberty'
breads have one-half or one-third
wheat flour. These are meant for
other days. If the housekeeper is
going to keep wheatless days wholly,
she must serve no bread on these days
with a grain of wheat in it.
Can this be done?
Yes. it can and is being done today
in patriotic homes from coast to coast.
And this is the way the housekeepers
arc managing it.
For breakfast and lunch or supper
they are serving one of the many
corn, oatmeal, rice or rye hot breads
that require no wheat whatsoever.
The following recipes fill the bill
and require very little time for prepa

Margaret Davy, a young woman
convicted of having poisoned several
persons, was boiled to death on this
date in 1542, being the first person
to be executed in that fiendish man
ner, under a statute passed by Henry
VIII. Richard Roose, a cook for the
Bishop of Rochester, upon conviction
of having poisoned two persons,, suf
fered the same horrible punishment.
The act, statute 22, Henry VIII., pro
vided that persons convicted of hav.
ing caused the death of anyJT.ie
through the administration of poison
should be stripped and thrown into a
large vat of boiling water to be pro
vided for that purpose. The act was
repealed In 1547. Boiling to death is
still a mode of capital punishment in
some parts of the interior of Asia.

When making soup, be sure to
cook the meat so it will be palatable
for the meat dish of the meal, that is,
put it to cook in boiling water. After
10 minutes of boiling reduce the heat
and let meat simmer until tender. If a
chuck piece, it may be lightly brown

with vegetole, and served as a roast
to be carved at the table.
A cupful of rice adds the necessary

It is best to buy the rice iff the car

WANT WOMEN TO
AID IN WORK OF
The formation of the Woman's
Land army to assist in increasing food
production in Connecticut this year
has been reported to the 'Connecticut
State Council of Defense. Question
naires have been sent about the state
and meetings held in rural communi

sought (1) overcoming the prejudice
of farmers to woman labor; (2) mo
bilizing the women, and (3) housing
the women. Five units have been de
cided upon to date and have been as
signed to five different communities.
A high class of intelligent women
can be secured among college women.
The plan is to have the women as
signed in groups of not less than ten,
each group to live under the same roof
and go out to neighboring farms to
work by the day. The working sched
ule will be eight hours a day for not
less than five days a week and the
pay $2 a day. All women workers
must pass a physical examination and
a special committee will decide upon
their ability. The committee recom
