DURING the summer Parisians'
solved the problem of keep
log cool In a rather para
doxical fashion that Is, the
women gowned themselves for the hot
weather in costumes of chiffon trim
med with fur.
At Auteull, the famous race course
of France, where the lure of the track
shares honors with the -stunning cos
tumes of the feminine spectators,
frocks of X ray fabrics, as the trans
parent stuffs are now called, have been
the rule; gowns of so airy a nature
that nothing save the full bands at the
bottom of the skirts apparently kept
them from blowing away. Indeed, a
well known Parisian at Auteuil was
heard to remark that "women wore
their furs to keep their clothes down."
Wraps worn over dressy summer
frocks, too. have had wide fur collars
of a queer pelt dyed in an unnatural
orange coior. So there Is every reason
to believe that we will have an un
usually early fur season regardless of
climatic condition.
The smart pelts of the winter season
will be moleskin, broadtail, seal, baby
caracul and pony skin.
The best liked fur coat models are in
cutawsy effects, straight front, or box
bloused. as the trade term them. And
In full models Japanese styles are much
But perhaps the newest of wraps are
the mantlettes. and they are charming

little wraps extend n trifle below the
waist line at the bark in rounded fash
Ion, have klrri'irio Sieeves and a square
cut off line at the waist In front.
In im.tatlon sea! a mantlette is de
cidedly good style, and one of the best
furriers In New York city has an at
tractive model of this fur priced at
fl'1; not sn exorbitant sum as the
price of fur haw soared together with
the cost of high lning in other direc
tions. A new and rather pvuinr feature of
the coat of l''l3 is the collar. There in

f UCH has been said about the charm
of the boudoir cap, but less is
known about the new bathrobe hoods.
These are made In a variety of shapes,
all very large. Some have a long peak
which flops down over the side of the
bead or back and a cap effect which
falls over the shoulders with a space
cut over the shoulders in the back of
the hood which displays the neck and

material as the bathrobe. They may

JF you wish to serve a nut dinner you
may do so, from soup to dessert.
Suppose you begin with nut chowder,
r.reak a half pound of mixed nut meats
into small pieces, put them into a
saucepan with four cupfuls of water
ami let them simmer for one and a half
hours Peel and cut Into cubes sev
eral potatoes, turnips and a large
onion. You will also need two cupfuls
of canned or stewed tomatoes. Strain
the nut meats, but save the water :n
which they have been boiled, as it
forms a valuable stock. Cover the bot
tom of a kettle with the potatoes, add
a layer of turnips and the onion, with
a sprinkling of thyme, sweet marjoram,
chopped parsley and salt: then a layer
of tomatoes and, last of all. the nut
meats. Repeat the layers in this order
until the ingredients are all used; then
pour over them all the stock, which
should be boiling.. Let the mixture
s mmer for half an hov.r; then add two
cupfuls of milk. Thicken with a little
flour and butter if desired. Nut butter
may be used for this thickening. It is
a'so possible to omit the tomatoes if
one wishes without spoiling the flavor
of the chowder.
Nut Roast.
This tasty nut roast is mad from
walnuts, pecans or filberts. Fut two
teacupfu'.s of stale breadcrumbs in a
mixing bowl and moisten with hot wa
ter and let stand a few minutes until
all the water is absorbed. Add one
cupful of crushed or ground nut meats
which have been broken into small
pieces. Flavor with one teaspoonf ul of
finely sifted sage or mived herbs and
with either half a teaspoonf ul of salt or
with one tesspoonful of lemon Juice.
Mix thoroughly and stir In one well
batn egg. Press into a square pan
to mold Into a loaf, and then turn, out
on a baking tin and roast or.e hour In
a moderate oven. To vary this raisins,
chopped f gs or dates might be used in
stead of the nut meats. You must use
your Judgment about the amount of
hot water used. The roast should le
moist as la consistent with its being
firmly molded when It is put into the
oven. It Is good cold or hot and makes
an excellent sandwich filling.
Nut Mince Pie.
Nut mince pie makes a delicious des
sert, and the ingredients are one cupful
of walnut meats, two cupfuls of apples
cut fine, ha'f cupful of vinegar, half
cupful of water or fruit Juice, half cup
ful of sugar mixed with ha'.f a tea
spoonful each of allspice, cinnamon and
salt and one cupful of raisins. This will
make sufficient filling for two pie

Or.e housewife had such a clever idea
shout "doing things." She bought a
ntat little pad and attached a pencil to
It by a long string. This pad she put
where every member of the household
could see it plainly. Each member who
wished help from another wrote his re-
luest on the pad. Just as soon as some I
one performed the service he cro:-?ed
out the request, signing his own little
initial:; undirnr-ath.
The pad proved very popular and
really saved an immense amount of
nagpirg and friction. Kuttons were
sewed on. shelves put up. pencils shar
pened and gloves mended without a
word of protest.
"Now we have time for real conver
sation in the family," sighed the

Good Lip Salve.
Atj excellent lip salve for ordinary
use is the old fashioned camphor ice.
Glycerin should not be used in any
case. It has too great an affinity for
the water and is too drying, while th
camphor ice is cooling and healing. In

latter for Uvo or three nights, change
