r 3 BUSINESS GIRLS' CLOTHES f TF there la any on with a preordain ed right to be careless with ber clothe It la the woman of wealth, but tt'a dollars to doughnuts if a census of the case were taken that the girl who has nothing; would be found guilty of much greater gartorlal carelessness. Order should be the slogan of the working rtrl who desires to present a well groomed appearance, and "a place for everything and everything In Its place" Is a motto that applies equally as well to the wardrobe as It does to the kitchen. When the working girl comes home at night tired and probably disgusted with the happenings of the day It Is natural that she should 'feel like throwing her hat and coat down la ar.y ftld place, but It Is only the work of a minute to place the hat carefully In a box and put the coat neatly on a hang er. In the morning both these articles of wearing apparel will be fresh and ready to don with credit. A hat that has been exposed to wet and dampness, however, should be thoroughly dried before being put away, and plenty of tissue paper should be stuffed in the crown to pre vent it from losing its shape. Gloves are another dress accessory that are apt to bo carelessly treated. The manner of keeping thpm when not In use has mure to on with lengthening or shortening their llvts than any num ber of wenrir.gs. They should never be flung in'o a drawer, but laid quite flat and smooth in a box kppt espe cially for lh purpose. Litjht colored gloves should be put away between! layers of white tissue paper. Veils, too, are another expensive item of the wardrobe tha". ar often treated with slight consideration. If your veil has become damp it should be laid quite flat across a table and allowed to dry In that position so that it does not wrinkle as it dries. There Is divided opinion about the care of furs that la, furs that are con stantly In use. Some experts say that they shou'd always be placed In the boxes in which they were sent home from the shop, other authorities ad vocate the method of hanging them on hangers. Klthcr way is better than throwing them down In a heap on a chair. Now about your street costume. It should never be worn in the home aft er you come In from the office, and the skirt should never be worn with out the coat, as It becomes soiled and spotted In this way long before the coat has begun to show signs of wear. It Is wise, therefore, to keep an old skirt to slip on at home so the offi'-e suit may be brushed and any soiled spots removed at once. Every month or so It pays to have the skirt sent to a tailor to be pressed and cleaned. Then. girl, do keep your lingerie in good condition. The Latest Clothes For the Young Schoolgirl FASHIONS for the schoolgirl this year are happily free from the extremes that char acterize styles for grownups.

For cooler days the frocks of French skirt .The fullness Is caught In at the French waist line (low waist line) and hidden beneath a girdle of black satin. About the rather low collarless neck is an embroidered collar, and two ends of black satin ribbon give a delightful touch at the neck front.

Coat styles are very smart this year, and even the seven-year-old wears a cutaway model. Such a coat appears among the cuts of " tobacco brown cloth. This cutaway coat Is only slightly rounded, however, just enough c r Ft made, and the severity is alleviated by a collar of machine embroidery and five white pearl buttons.

The belt is dropped below APPLE DESSERTS f mHERE Is a generally accepted Idea that the apple is distinctively American, but the cooks of other na tions than our own appreciate the cull nary possibilities of this fruit to even a greater degree than we do in this country. Here' are a few of the really delicious ways in which apples may be made into desserts: i Apple Croquettes, reel, quarter and core a dozen large cooking apples. Slice them into a j saucepan with two ounces of melted butter, the rind of a lemon and three- fourihs of a cupful of sugar. Cook to a very thick sauce, stirring frequently to prevent scorching: then add the beaten yolks of four eggs and two table-spoonfuls of rice Hour or cornstarch beaten smooth with the eggs. Mix well, stir a few minutes longer, and press through a sievu. Spread on a buttered pie plate to cool, and when quite stiff turn out on a board well sprinkled with fine dry breadcrumbs and divide into equal portions about the size of a, small app'.e or pear. Cover v ith the crumbs, dip into beaten egi; and again into the crumbs, shaking off a!a crumbs that are loose to pre vent their falling into the fat and scorching the bottom of the kettle. Fry a ni'-e. rich brown in deep hot fat. When they are fried roll them in pow dered suiiur and cinnamon. r. Baked Apples a la Dcurdalone. Tare, remove the cores and cut a dozen large cooking apples in halves. Place In a shallow baking dish, add the Juice of two lemons and some powder ed sugar and pour over them some melted butter. Heat them thoroughly over the lire and then place in the ovn to finish cooking. Arrange in a pyra mid form in a g'.ass dish or in a fire proof serving dish and cover with a layer of peach or apricot marmalade, sprinkle a cupful of finely chopped almonds over the surface, mix with a third of a cupful of sugar and place In the ov. n long enough to glaze the sur face to a bright yellow color. ?

Where Pins 60 P'OR many years the world has been baffled by the problem of where the pins go that are turned out in millions and millions by the pin factories. But the problem seems to have been solved at last. A Farla scientist. Dr. Xavler, has been experimenting on pics, hairpins and needles by the sim ple process of watching a few. He states that they practically disappear Into thin air by changing Into ferrous oxide, a brownish rust that soon blows away In dust. An ordinary hairpin took only 154 days to blow away. A steel nib lasted Just under fifteen months. A common pin took eighteen months to vanish. A polished steel needle defied the ravages the atmosphere longest, taking two and a half years to disappear. Bo the reason why the world Is not a foot deep in the p-.ns it buys is. it seems, exactly the same which makes an Iron surface scale off when exposed for a long time to the atmosphere with out the protection of paint. '.-. JANY people have bad nights be- cause they find great difficulty in "dropping off." They lie awake and toss for hours and make themselves so uncomfortable that they are thorough ly worn out before sleep comes to their rescue. i if this Is one of your little habits you should not try to conquer it by going to bed at a certain hour with the Intention of making yourself sleep. Sleep Is a thing that won't be forced. It needs coaxing if it is to come at all. If you have an early supper it is a -ery good plan to drink a glass of hot milk and eat a few biscuits the last thing before you get into bed. Though you don't know it. hunger may be the trouble that is making you restless. A light little meal will not give you in digestion, particularly if you sip the milk slowly, reading a book at the same time. Another excellent way of coaxing sleep is rather a queer one. Just be fore getting into bed you should wash yoar feet in very cold water and dry them briskly with a rough towel. This causes the blood to rush into them with such force that it Is drawn away from your head, and your overactive brain has a chance of keeping quiet for a little while. Reading in bed Is often very sooth ing, but if you indulge in this luxury you must have a book rest which Will hold the book up before your face. It !s very bad for your eyesight to read when you are lying on your side with a book propped up against the bed rail or the wall. An apple eaten the last thing at night is a very good thing for insomnia. Take it to bed with you and eat it after 'the light is out. If you are so tired that you become restless and the bed feels uncomfort able try what you can do by relaxing ail your muscles. Do not be in a hurry about this "let ting go" f yourself, but try to relax by degrees first your .head and then your neck, and so on until you reach your toes. It is not very easy to fall limp at first because it is a business which needs a great deal of concentra tion, but K completely takes your mind off other things. When you are thoroughly relaxed an over you will find that you are lying perfectly at ease on the bed, with a sense of blissful comfort which soon fades off Into the even greater comfort of sleep. n i EGG BASKET AND CORN BOILER. rJ;WO wire baskets to aid the housewife are Illustrated. The basket to the left is used for boiling crn without risk of a bad burn when immersing the vegetable in boiling water. The basket divides in the middle so that when the vegetable is cooked the touch of a lever at the handle opens it and the corn is on the platter without further trouble. The other basket is for boiling eggs. The hourglass at the handle tells the busy housewife when her eggs are boiled, and they may be then lifted out of the water. ' - & A Word to Mothers yOW that the school term has begun the question of the growing child's diet looms up again. The school years form one of the most important epochs in the lives of children as regards ade quate nutrition. Parents are apt to overlook this fact more from ignorance than from willful neglect. Food during the school days should be abundant and should contain suffi cient proteids, starches, sugars and in organic salts to meet the demands of rapid growth for all the constituents of a perfect food. It is a common Joke for parents to laugh at the enormous appetites of their growing girls and boys and to limit the supply of certain foods needed at this time. Children are often allow ed to go to school with only light breakfasts, sometimes with none at all. Then copie cold luncheons at noon. All this is extremely harmful. A child should never be set at any task before breakfast. If it rises early and the meal hour is late it should have a bowl of hot milk, a cup of cocoa and a roll before beginning any work. Of course the ideal dinner hour for the child is noon, but when this is im possible a hot luncheon should be ar ranged for. Supper should comprise very easily digested foods, nnd pastry, cheese and meats are better omitted. Meat soups are good. Baked potatoes, stewed fruits and eggs in varitius ways are excellent for the evening meal. Growing children should have plenty of milk, and they should be given to understand that when hungry they can always have glasses of milk for the asking. Fresh fish, eggs and bacon are all wholesome foods for children, and meat, as a rule, may be given them twice a day. Large, healthy boys re quire a good proportion of meat in their dietaries. Popular Colors of the Autumn itf COAT EFFECT IN COSTUMES i JUDGING from the number of vel veteen and velvet models seen so far this fall, it is evident that pile fab- BLACK LAMP SHADES. W'H are still enamored of "that touch of black" for giving distinction to the decoration of our rooms, and the latest Idea is the black lamp shade. This is oblong in shape and is made of black satin or chiffon velvet very closely plaited. If placed In a rather secluded corner of the room it gives a gloomy, almost eerie, note that Is most effective, but the rest of the room must be lighted in the usual .way. Another mournful lamp shade Is made of plaited black ninon finished with a fringe- of black beads, and yet another is com posed of a close trelliswork of black Jet beads lined with a single fold of black chiffon and having a Iocs fringe of delicate cut Jet beads. ill pointing sharply over the hips la sug gestive of directoire coat lines. The front of the velvet bodice opens wide to reveal an inner bodice of creamy chiffon over silver tissue, a color combination which harmonizes beautifully with the terra cotta tone of the velvet and the embroidery motif. IF YOU WOULD BE FREE FROM WRINKLES. QFTEN they come from Imaginary cares. Do not worry over the little things. Above all things, do not be a "fuss er." Get plenty of sleep K Is better than many cosmetics. And, whatever else you do. forget that you have "nerves." So many women allow their faces to become tense and set and then wonder why "lines" develop. Relax the muscles, cultivate a pleas ant expression and remember that Hps which curve upward and smile are much more attractive than the droop ing sort. 1 FROCK OF TERRA COTTA VELVET. rics are here for another season's popularity.

" THE.glrl with golden glints in her hair and a good complexion has nothing to fear from the popular colors of the autumn, for among the most at tractive are copper tints, varying from light copper to chaudier and mordore, which is a warmer tone with a deep gold cast. And these colors, in com bination with harmonizing tones, are possible for every woman. Another popular color is the new Bakst green, named for the Russian scenic artist. Kitty Gordon, the ac tress, has also been honored In the same way, one of the rich, deep greens, a green as limpid as creme de menthe, bearing her name. Blue has lost none of Its prestige, and some authorities think that - the new blue shades should receive first place rather than the copper colors. Of the blues, the latest Is a shade deeper than the peacock blue, which Is a great favorite; also the porbeau. The soft blues on the nattier and Dutch order are much liked, and a-very dark blue helps to supply the demand for som ber colorings. The red shades vary widely. There Is a very vivid red that is being used sparingly for accessories on costumes, but the majority of the reds are on the dregs of wine order and soft brick tones. For evening wraps th geranium red ! is in great demand. There is also a i purple with lots of red in it, a shade resembling the fuchsia. Browns should not be overlooked In ! this list of new colors, for all of the couturieres have made much of them this season, the tobacco and Havana browns being the favorites. A soft, pretty rose tint Is often combined with these brown tones. For street wear the dark rich shades, the tete de negre. a deep taupe and a blue that is almost black are the fash ionable colors. Anothar new color is called heather, a lovely grayish laven der that is particularly pretty in silky textiles. And everywhere there are to be found quantities of silver used for trimmings, and all silver lace is thought to be more chic than gold lace. PIQUE SHIRTS, rpnre newest shirts to wear with the eponne skirts are those in pique. The new pique is only a distant rela five to the stiff piquo of other years, as it in delightfully soft and supple. The shirt is masculine in cut, with the exception of the neck, which is Invari ably finished with one of the becom ing rolling collars which owe their ori gin to the days of Mary Stuart. The correct finishing touches are added when a sash of plaid ribbon and a cra vat to match are adjusted. No matter how severe the skirt and shirt waist may lie, the sash is sure to give the feminine touch. t.i A?l ADVANCED MODEL (F smoke gray bedford cord, this suit would be Inconspicuous were It not for the rather astonishing scarf of blue and gray faille ribbon which passes In and oat through slashes down the coat front.

The first Intimation that the fash ionable world had thatthey were to be popular was In their appearance on slippers. When they first arrived as a finish to pumps they brought down upon them quite a good deal of criti cism. Conservative women said that ; never would they wear such conspicu ous tnings on tneir reet in the street, and they were not quite sure that they were advisable even for evening, as they made the foot look larger.
