0-TfiE G. AMEBIffIN IXGION (Cepy for This Department Buppltel Wf the American !.e<lnn New* lU>rvlre.) LIKE THE OLD-TIME DANCES Legionnaires Enjoy Steps Popular With South at ths Big National Convention. Abas the Jazz! Welcome the waltz the stately minuet, the Virginia reel the sedate schot tische. Many thou sands of America! Legionnaires hav< voiced their ver diet. Which Is thi verdict spoken bj the American as sociatlon as well The thousandi o f Legionnaire* expressed the i i approval of th< more moderate 0 likewise modest dances when Blooj Schleppey, former marine and a Le gionnaire, down New Orleans way, an nounced the old dances would prevail and be featured at the big national American Legion convention. Mr Schleppey, who fitted out Spanish Fort park as a second Nice for entertain merit of the Legion members, prepared his programs with all the care and caution any Beau Bru min el of 50 years ago would exercise. Said he: ••The waltz and the minuet and the Virginia reel breathe of the spirit of the old South. And they are the dances of !>eauty, of real sentiment of soothing strains. I have noticed that the dancing masters of the nation seek to do away with the atrocious jazz dancing of the present. And J have heard that the country is pre pared to welcome the waltz back at Its principal terpslchorean pleasure So I decided that the American Legion dancers would receive my announce ment enthusiastically. They did. Tbej approached the fact that ft would be of typical Southern atmosphere tc dance the old dances that were sc popular with the belles and beaux of the South.” Mr. Schleppey also devised a magnl fleent nightly fireworks and battle scene display for the entertainment of convention guests. MADE PAJAMAS FOR WOUNDED Prominent Women of Hawaii, Under Supervision of Mrs. Dorothy B. Harper, Aided Veterans. ”Aloha from Hawaii,” was the mea sage a number of wounded w’ar vet- erans in American hospitals found written on slips of paper tucked In pockets of gay colored pajamas which were hand ed out to them by members of the American Legion auxiliary. The pajamas had been made by American wo men under the M 4.. F palm trees during the long hot tropical afternoons. The women who worked Included such loyal citizens of the United States as the wife of the gov ernor of Hawaii, the wife of the ad miral of the U. S fleet stationed there, and the wife of the commandant of the Marine barracks. The work was done under the super vision of Mrs. Dorothy B. Harper, pres ident of the American Legion auxiliary in Hawaii, and also a member of the American Legion, by virtue of her work for the U. 8. marines during the war. She lives at Hilo. The pajamas from Hawaii were first sent in re sponse to an api>eal from auxiliary workers at the hospital at Camp Lo gan, Tex. Love Tilts. // Myfe vA He—There’s Jack and he’s quarrel Ing again.

AIDALKEU I FIRE UNDER ASHES /K GREAT many uncharitable, critt cal people run down the unfor tunate man or woman, standing on the brink of discouragement and fail ure, without looking for the real cause. It may be ill heul*h, It may be shock from tiie loss of a loved one. It may be misfortune, which In spite of ut most vigilance comes to all of us; or It may be inaptitude or inability, but whatever the cause, let us be patient and considerate before we launch austere criticism and throw up our hands In condemnation. If our hearts are right, and It Is assumed they are, let us in a humane spirit seek to remove the ashes from the live coals beneath, and fan them into a hopeful blaze. Whatever may be the prevailing opinion for or against such a proced ure, this Is the noble way, almost cer tain to give encouragement to he dis heartened and lift them up In a new world where Hope lives eternally and Truth and Mercy smile kindly, even when the storms beat hardest and the days are darkest. Uncommon Sense JttN BLAKE || GLOOM 18 CATCHING ■pVEN though we are reasonably sure that the sun is still in the sky, a cloudy day depresses us. Most of us suffer from a feeling of forebod ing even on a clear day, when a cloud comes between us and the distant fire that lights and warms the world. We are similarly sensitive to all the little troubles of our lives—to anything that disturbs our regularly ordered ex istence. A temporary illness—a suspicion that there are some kind of business break ers ahead—these things plunge us In to gloom. And we. In our turn, pass the gloom along. For our friends seeing the black tuid foreboding faces that we wear, grow gloomy, too. One sullen-faced man in an office will sometimes spoil the day for the entire working force. One croaker on board a ship in a storm may send the whole passenger list Into something very like a panic. Nobody loves a gloomy man, but ev erybody listens to him, and looks at him. The prophet of evil is never without an audience. Poe, In his remarkable poem shows how the raven, by croaking the word "Nevermore” was able to drive a luck less poet almost to the verge of Insan ity. Continual gloom Is not good for the soul, any more than continual shadow would be good for the green and blos soming things upon the surface of the earth. We all need sunahlne, and a great deal of It. It Is not necessary to go about con tinually telling people how happy we are, like Pollyanna, but we can at least keep our troubles to ourself, and not look as if we were limping along toward the grave or the gallows. The gloomy man or woman in a home destroys the happiness of an en tire family, and usually drives the chil dren out on the streets, where at least lTlotner’s Cook Book Here’s a world that suffers sorrow. Here are bitterness and pain. And the Joy we plan tomorrow May be ruined by the rain. —Edward Guest. FOODS A CHILD MAY HAVE THE foods In the following list are those a child may have, though they should not all be served In one meal, and the mother selects the foods most appropriate. Solid foods are introduced gradually after one year of age in the diet of a normal baby. The first meal should have ns a be ginning a dish of cereal, gruel, proper ly salted and served with milk; a piece of zwieback or crumbs of bread made soft with milk, or an egg occasionally, cooked for two minutes and thick ened with bread crumbs. This Is the time to form the habit of slow eat ing and perfect mastication. It is so Important that other things should be slighted rather than neglect this, as it means a lifelong habit for health or Indigestion with Its Ills. Fresh bread, hot breads and rich bls rult should never be given. Always serve bread stale enough to crumble. A good way to serve It Is to cut In small squares and brown in the oven. For the child from the twelfth to the eighteenth month, fruits such as orange. pineapple, strained apple sauce, prune Juice and mashed pulp. Is especially good, as they contain If we will lock deeply into de spairing hearts we will find that un der the ashes of sorrow there are always coals of living fire, which kindness, sympathy and unselfish help fulness can fan lnt« s glorious flame. Even in the souls of the most dis reputable and hardened sinners there Is ever burning an Immortal spark of the heavenly fire hidden somewhere beneath the slumbering gray ashes, waiting to be rescued. And in spite of the frowns of the world. In spite of courts and prisons, in spite of bereavement, of poverty, of riches, or pomp, pride or envy this spark survives all through our earthly existence, down to the final moment when life itself despairingly flares up and goes out, done with its temporal house of clay. The question may then come to us as to w’hether we have played our part as becomes trie men and women, and likewise whether the spark in our own souls has not been bidden by the ashes which we. through neglect of others, have permitted to cover and darken It. It is so easy for sympathies and love to go blind Torn disuse that unless we keep them ever burning in our own hearts they will never blaze suffi ciently to warm and cheer the hearts of others, lost on the way and too proud or weak to call for help.

(©. 1921, Western Newspaper Union.) o Guided by Electricity. A French transatlantic steamship company was the first to expenment with the radiogoniometer Invented by Bellini and Tosl. By means of this apparatus the direction of an invisible vessel, sailing along a coast and emitting wireless signals, can be de termined from two stations on the shore and Its course can be accurately mapped. Conversely, a vessel fur nished with a radiogoniometer can determine its place near a coast by observing the directions of the waves coming from two wireless stations on the shore, and can thus make its way tn a fog when the coast lights are in visible. O Chance to Observe. "There’s one thing about the new styles.” "What, for Instance?” "I never realized before there were so many good looking girls lu thi* town.” —New York Sun. Stylish Fall Suits Soft Unbroken Lines Character ize Winsome Models. Jacquette Effect With Varying Degrees nf Bloused Backs Striking Fea ture in New Outfits. To develop a suit in the soft un broken lines that characterize a dress lr one of style's requisites for those models that would be truly smart. The employment of finest fabrics and ad herence to the graceful lines of today’s silhouette have made this requisite not only a possibility, but the means of achieving some unusually artistic creations. One company has had ex ceptional success in developing the new model In fall suits, and is show ing a varied and Interesting line of de luxe numbers. The jacquette effect with varying degrees of bloused backs is a strik ing feature of the new suits. The fitted hip line achieved by a narrow band or deep yoke is used and fan sleeves are interspersed with num bers showing a fitted shoulder line. One of the models with a fitted hip band handsomely affects the as pect of a dress by four coat panels fin ished wltn broad bands of fur that drop over the skirt several Inches be low the hem. This number is fash ioned of a fine veldyne and trimmed with lynx. Paris’ latest edict calling for the fitted rleeve with flared cuff Is beau tifully Interpreted by this house, and In outlining the full cuff Is done only In the finest furs. One of the most fascinating of the new styles shows an extreme side fastening on the coat with a soft draped effect held In place by a large ornament. In contradis tinction to this treatment, the back Is severely straight and tailored. Straight line coats in those numbers of staple character are shown In Mar vella cloth and establish a preference for a short coat effect that gives youth and a great deal of chic to these num bers. Beaver and squirrel are shown TWEED FOR FALL AND WINTER 4 -W'" ... M 3 Tweed promises to be as popular for fall and winter as for early spring. A wide collar of raccoon fur makes it de cidedly comfortable for cold weather and saves carrying an extra fur. THE THREE-PIECE SUIT IS LIKED Outfit to Be Strong Favorite Among Winter Fashlona— Dress and Coat of Same Fabric. The three-piece suit promises to be the piece de resistance of the winter’s fashions, but it Is possibly a little early for that variety of costume. Since the dress is of heavy material and the coat Is of that same fabric, the chances are that the gown p.s a whole will be too heavy to serve through the fall months. However, when the time does come for Its adoption. It will be found to hare more of a place in the sun that, it had even during last season when It could not be said to be greatly In the shade. Some of the dresses made of per fectly plain silks and those that are heavily woven recommend themselves most heartily for between-season wear. They are made merely of masses of drapery. They scorn trim ming la any respect. They are built to accentuate the lines of the form and to stop at that. Many of them have been seen at the smart restaurants and upon the street, for they are the products of a late season which have recommended themselves must heart ily to the wear of women who are looking for new things and smart things at this season of the year. Gray Silk Hosiery. It is correct to have a delicate vine of morning glories In natural colors as n clock on your gray silk hosiery, .rovhltMl flic gown you wear repents n some degree one or more of the •irnli»g-glory tints. A gown of gray | ron.n ne In a pale shade worn PAGE SEVEN RICH HAT OF BROWN VELVET f uWgSlBSh’ This stunning hat of brown velvet is completely stitched and sufficient un to Itself with only a band of grosgrain ribbon as relief. It is In splendid han* mony with the machine embroidery oi the gown worn by the model. In the deep shaw’l collars of these suits and patch pockets of the fur give them a sturdy, efficient look that may be truly enjoyed in winter. Fine tucking is one of the distin guishing features of several numbers and nicely exploits the fine workman ship that typifies the entire showing of this manufacturer. BAGS OF THE SATCHEL TYPE Rare Specimens of the Jeweler’s Art Feature Engraved Gold and Sil ver and Leather. Two rare specimens of the jeweler’s art In bag making which have been Im ported to this country are of the satch lel type. One has a mounting of chis- I eled silver, the bag Itself being of sli ver gray doeskin. The other, which is made of black undressed kid, has a platinum mounting set with sapphires and rhinestones. There I? an embroid ered design decorating one side oi the bag with certain parts being paint ed in sapphire blue to match the blue of the sapphire in the mounting. The most skilled workers in the leather industry are now busily em bossing, carving, painting by hand and ornamenting with metal and stones the most finely dyed and fin ished leathers. Mountings of solid gold, gold washed sliver and platinum continue to be favorites for the flat leather purse and card case.- To give variety tnese metal pieces, which are ha.nmered on as borders astride the edges of leather, are sometimes skill fully engraved. Hand carving and em bossing and hand painting add a fur ther variety to leathers which enter into the makeup of bags. Homespun Sult. For fall wear an exceptionally at tractive suit is of blue homespun col lared with fitch. Its straight box coat and beautifully cut skirt are distinc tive and vastly different from the commonplace models of the early summer. Georgette Robe. A robe of delicate pink georgette Is handmade and embAidered in a de sign of pink beads and hand stitch ' Ing. nt a fashionable affair recently had a sash from which hung four floating panels, the panels and sash being In morning glory Ehades of bin*. On the gray stockings was n fine vine of tiny blue morning gl< ries placed as a clock on the side. SLEEVES ARE OF ALL TYPES Armcoverings in New Blouses Have Same Style as Used in Dresses —Fabrics Follow. ' The sleeves in the new blouses are of all types, every sleeve that is seen jin dresses being represented. The fah ' rics, too, follow the lead of dresses, as do collars and trimmings. Silks 1 of crepe weave as well as the blistered effects are prominent. All the shades of brown play an important part In the color scheme. Necklines are both collared and collarless, the latter be ing In slightly greater favor. Both bead and thread embroideries continue tn unabated popularity. Jersey for Street Wear. Jersey will be a popular fabric for street wear. An unusual model devel oped in this material comes in a very soft shade of green with collars, cuffs and belt of white kid.
