SHERWOOD WINIFRED BLACK WRITES ABOUT Passing of the Vampire Copyright, 1918, by Newspaper Feature Service, Inc. f J 1 She was always dressed in one of two colors Jet black or bright red. If she was a blonde, she wore black, cut very low, oh, amazingly low, and she had Jet ear-rings and Jet beads in her fair hair and Jet on her slippers that glistened so alluringly, and all her bracelets and rings flashed and sparkled like the eyes of so many "dangerous", serpents. She was sinuous and tall, and she draped herself over the couch and hung herself on the arms of chairs and whispered and mads large eyes and plotted and tried to take the hero away from the heroine and almost succeeded. It made you gasp to see how close she came to getting him, and, although the heroine triumphed in the end and the dangerous woman slunk away nnd tried to laugh behind her ostrich feather fan, we all knew she wasn't laughing at all, but was really doing whatever a woman does when she curses. But she was always a great deal more interesting to us than te heroine. We always confessed to each other quite confidentially, after we had gone home and had dinner and were in our rooms with our hair hanging down our backs, that there was something about the dangerous woman that simply fascinated us. Which More Dangerous, Ked or Black? If If she was a dark woman, she ings and. scarlet satin .slippers. We used to have great arguments as to which was the most dangerous looking scarlet or Jet black. We never settled the question. I was always for the black because I am inclined to be blonde mysel(, but all my brunette friends thought that red was a good deal more startling and more daring, and the dangerous woman must always be daring whatever else she was. Then the next time there was a party we all tried to wear either black or scarlet, and we all turned the necks of our prim little frocks down in farther than the dressmaker was allowed to make them, and we gwt hold of big fans, somehow, or other, and made eyes, and did our best ; to glide and slither and slide, and somehow the nice boys who took us to the parties never seemed, to know quite what to make of us, which annoyed us terribly. I remember once my partner asked me very sympathetically if the ice cream had been too cold for me Just as I thought he was going to succumb to my fatal charms. These late years the vampire persons has confined most of her opera tions to the movie theatre, but, oh, how awfully busy she has been there! What homes she has wrecked, what lives she has shattered, what cruel heartrending laughs she has laughed, and how she has slithered and glided and made eyes, and how the girls you see In the streets have been trying to imitate her. That is all over now and it is going to be all over while this war is On, too, I believe. The fashion is health and round, honest e3S and rosy cheeks, and strong, ' confident hands, and straightforward, snple ways the girl we know is imitating the Red Cross nurse. If she isn't sensible and practical and kind, she is trying to look as if she were, and that is something, isn't It? Red Cross Type vs. Vampire Hurrah! I'm glad of it. I believe the next generation will be better eff for this bit of imitation. Here's to the Red Cross and white coif, and the clear ,eyes and the straightforward, honest look. Somehow I like the fiO. Cross type a great deal better than I do this vampire person, don't you'; i And the .best of it is, the men seem to like it better, too. And that, after all, is what really counts. We women are strange folk we do like to please the men, and we would dress anA look and act Just as much like the one being who seems to attract them as we can, even if we hate and loathe the sight of that sought-after being ourselves, and if that isn't unselfish, and perfectly fem inine I should like to know what is.

When I was Bweet sixteen I wanted to be a" vam pire. We didn't know them by that name then, but we knew what they were oh, dear, yes. We read about them in the family story paper and once in a while when we girls had a half-holiday we slipped away to the matinee by ourselves and there was always some kind of a vampire in the play if we had our way. It seems to me they called her a dangerous woman in those days, and dear me, she was dangerous, indeed!

R. census of war relief resources was taken in 1917, individual members of Connecticut chapters subscribed to a fund by which board and tuition of students from this state at the Woman's Na tional Service schools and campr might be paid. Three women have taken the course; one, a daughter, at her own expense, the other two, ap pointed by the state regent by means of this fund. They are Miss Julia Kernan, instructor and stenographer in French at Carnegie institute, and Miss Ruby Jeneks, for three years national organizer of Boy Scouts. The state regent, Mrs. John Laid law Buel, has recently appointed a Committee to select candidates to be sent to the training schools and camps. The cost of a student's uniform is approximately $11. Any one who desires to take advantage of this fund should make application to a member of the committee at her earliest possible convenience as the committee hopes to place as many Connecticut students as possible :n the Chautauqua camps during July and August. The committee con sists of Mrs. Starr C. Barnum of Danbury president; Mrs. Amos Browning of Norwich, and Mrs. Hu bert M. Sedgwick of New Haven. A large audience attended the sec ond of the exhibition concerts by the pupils of John Adam Hugo in the auditorium of the Bridgeport High school last evening.

R. in the state by the committee on educational propaganda of the Wom an's Committee of the State Council of Defense. This course has been put into the Danbury Summer Nor mal school by the State Board of Education because it realizes the one way to combat disloyalty is through the medium of a common language. The comlttee recognizes .that through the co-operation of the mem bers of the D. A. R. interested teach ers may be secured for next winter both for paid positions in evening scvhools and for volunteer groups, particularly of women. The course will be given in four weeks, beginning July 9, tuition free, in charge of Mr. Samuel J. Brown of New York. It is open to all who are interested in any phase of Americanization work and should meet with a cordial response from Connecticut Daughters, fo those who fit themselves for this work are qualifying for patriotic ser vice.

To Parents and Teacher Get Tonr Children to Read This Instructive Dairy Feature. CAROLINE NEUBER. Caroline Neuber was born in 1692, the daughter of a German lawyer, who was very strict with her. In her fifteenth year she ran away with a student, Neuber, whom she later married. They organized a strolling group of actors, with the young wo man at their head. She made laws for the troup and intr'oduced better morals among its members. In 1726 she received royal permission to per form in Dresden and Lelpslc where she revived ancient German plays. After the death of King Augustus, in 1733, she went to Hamburg, but re turned to Leipsic again in 1737, to reform the stage in conjunction with the celebrated author Gottsched. Her fame spread all over the continent. After that she traveled for several years and on returning to Leipsic quarrelled with rer benefactor, Gott sched, going so far as to burlesque him on the stage. From that time fortune forsook her; she was com pelled to disband the troup, and died In great poverty near Dresden in 1760. HAS THE CHURCH FAILED? At the United church, Sunday morn ing, Dr. . William Horace Day is to discuss the important theme "Is the Church Responsible for the Wreck of Civilization 7" At the beginning of the war, men said "Christianity has failed." They discovered that was not true. Bernard Shaw, Chesterton and a host of others corrected the first accusation by saying Christianity has not failed because Christianity has not been tried. The blame for the col lapse of civilization was then placed at the door bf the Church. Men said, "It is not the fault of the Chris tian spirit, it is the fault of religious organization." After the morning sermon, the holy communion will be celebrated. "O Saving Victim," by Tours, will be sung. The Community Forum sessions have been suspended for the summer months, subject to special . announce ment by the president, Mr. Shaw. It is now planned to open the regular sessions of the Forum for the winter the first Sunday in November. ATTRACTIVE NOVELTY. There is one especial novelty re cently launched by the milliners. It comes by way of Paris, and it has been worn over there by strikingly dressed women, for, bad as the war situation . Is, there is no gainsaying the fact that the French women are now dressing more brilliantly than they have since June, 1914. This novelty consists of earrings, Jong, pendant ones, attached to the inner edge of the brim of the hat. They dangle over the neck. They are made of crystals, of filigree gold, of colored gems, set in silver, and sometimes of precious stones. ' Caprice cannot be eliminated, even by threatening disaster. To protect the hair, nostrils and mouth from dirt while sweeping, tie the head up in a long veil (an old au tomobile veil is good for the purpose), arranging It after the fashion of the TurkiBh and Persian women leaving only the eyes exposed. To make geraniums bloom well in winter they require to be kept In small pots all summer. When you take them Into the house In the fan do not repot them. Raise the win dows every day for a little, while if not too cool and do not keep them open too long. GARMENT MAKING BY THE RED CROSS The garment cutting department of the Atlantic division of the Red Cross has its own little trials. Its particu lar job is to supply with garments cut out and assembled all the Red Cross chapters in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut as fast as those chapters send in calls for materials. And that is no easy task. The amount of work required to keep up with the demand is, enormous. Recently, in one week, more than 65,- 000 yards of material were cut into 1,600 dozen garments. To accom plish this' the Red Cross Jias turned it self into a factory, and highly trained workers manipulating the most effi cient kinds of machines make that out- ptit possible. Between the workroom partitions are tables 90 feet long over which on trolleys suspended from the celling run various electric machines, explains the Electrical Experimenter. One of them is for spreading the material, one for making stencils as long as the table and another for actual cutting. This last has to be guided with tire less care. It is fitted with a revolv ing knife razor so sharp that it will cut through 260 layers of heavy ma terial as easily as through one. A single slip therefore, on the worker's part, an instant's inattention, would be a costly thing. The stenciling machines, which have little wheels with red hot points for burning holes in paper, are time savers. In order that there shall be the least possible waste of material the patterns have to be fitted into each other with the intricacy of a clev er picture puzzle. To do this down the length of a 90-foot table takes an expert worker over four hours; where once a stencil has been cut and un trained person can mark the same amount of material in 15 minutes. The department, which has been in operation only a short time, has un til lately confined itself to cutting hos pital garments. Recently for the first time it undertook refugee gar ments as well. After devoting its energies exclusively to these for six days it had on -hand a sufficient stock of garments of 19 varieties and 47 sizes to meet any orders which the chapters may send in.

By Lncrezia Bori " 4 ' (The Famous Spanish Prima Donne)' ' Why should the hair je brushed? There seem to be some conflicting opinions on the subject, so it's worth while giving a little attention. For unless the hair is properly brushed, woman's crowning glory soon loses its wealth and lustre. Some women use the brush as though they expected it to smooth the hair and untangle it. This is by no means its function. The comb is used for the purpose of untangling the strands and to get the hair ready ror tne treatment of the brush. The comb should never be used with a swing from the roots to the ends of the hair. That, method of combing pulls the hair out and needlessly Irritates the scalp. Begin at the tips of the hair, combing a few Inches at a time, until gradually reaching the scalp. Then It is easy to comb through the hair from scalp to ends, without breaking or remov? ing any hairs by force. Having untangled the hair, it is now ready for the brush. The pur pose of brushing is simply to distri bute evenly throughout the whole whole length of the hair the natural oils. Healthy, beautiful hair Is the hair that has a lustre given by its own oils. Each individual hair of the head is lubricated by the secretion of one or more small oil glands which open nto the channel through which it 'passes to the surface of the skin. Now, It is the oil which gives bril liancy to the hair, but in order that all the hair of the head not simply that which is nearest the oil glands receive this lustre, it is necessary to spread the lubricant throughout the entire hair. The Proper Way. This is the function of brushing. The brush also helps to sweep out of the hair any bits of dust and dirt that adhere to it. But if you would f The New Clothes v Sable and marten are favorite furs now and promise to be so still in the autumn. The pile fabrics are so scarce and so high that very few coats can be made of them. They are wearing velvet waistcoats of brilliant colors, with white or black skirts. TricoUne is often used instead of a pile fabric, the latter hav ing become appallingly expensive. Most oone-piece frocks are navy blue, with coral, red, banana'4 color c French blue for finish. Reliable WHITE SAUCE. Two tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 pint milk, 1-2 teaspoon salt. Melt butter; when bubbling add flour, cool, add milk; cook until it thickens. BAKED CORN Will some one try this baked corn when green corn is in the market T One cup cold boiled corn, cut from the cob; 1 cup milk, 1 egg, salt and pep per to taste. Bake 1-2 hour, or till set like a custard. Serve hot! ' IMITATION CHICKEN Take 1 1-2 pounds lean pork chops, trim off all fat and put aside. Take plates; in one put corn flour, in the second put cracker meal, and in the third 2 eggs well beaten. Add a little salt to the eggs, cracker meal and flour. Then take chops and dip first in flour, then ni eggs and lastly in meal. Try out fat, and after it is good and hot fry chops until they are good and brown. FRICASSEED LAMB 9 .A cheap dish that is very nice: Get 3 pounds of lamb (small pieces will do and are cheaper), boil them till tender, set away to cool; remove all the fat and cut in small pieces; fry 2 or 3 slices of salt pork till fat is all out, then put in the lamb and broth; add a piece of butter, salt and pepper to taste; let it boil and then take out meat. Thicken the gravy and pour over meat. THE HOME COMFORTABLE Libraries and living rooms should have angles and niches, or as many out of the way places as possible. Where the plan of the room interferes .sofas, bookcases and tables should be so arranged to produce them.

You Must Fill Out These Blanks! get full benefit from the natural hair oils which are tn all healthy hair, then you must follow a regular method of brushing; Begin with one side of the brush, holding the back toward the direc tion in which the hair Is being brush ed. In other words; if the hair on the right side of the head la being dressed, first hold the brush with Its back toward the right In this way the scalp will not be Irritated by the bristles. When the brush is a little distance from the head, spread it flat down on the hair and finally draw the hair ends through the other side of the brush. Some Hair Aids. By continuing this regularly, the whole length of the hair is adequately brushed, and thus all parts receive the same even spread of il that Im parts a complete lustre to the hair. If the hair hasn't sufficient natural oil, some preparation for the purpose may be applied and brushed into the hair. Here is one: 1 dram essence cologne 2 drams odorless castor OH 1 ounce rectified spirit. - . These should be well mixef'jOttlea and kept corked tightly untif desired for use. Another wholesome oil . for the hair is the following: Mix together equal parts of al mond oil and lime water, and add five drops of oil of lemon to each ounce for scent. If oil of 1 lemon iBn't a favorite scent, use oil of orange flower or oil of rer- bena. A good way to spread these creams into the hair is to pour a few drops into the palm of the hand, to dip the end of the brush into it, and then to brush the hair well. Don't pour the oils directly on the hair as the oil will soak into one spot excessively and make it impossible to spread adequately. Recipes trellis worked over the wavy space.
