The New Hosiery Double Stocking of Glove Silk, One of the Latest. Unprecedented Demand for Woolen and Silk-and-Woo'.en Article la the Prediction. What will happen to the glory of stockings now that they are to be enveloped by yards of ripping silk is a question whose answer hosiery manufacturers would probably give a lot to know, observes a fashion writer In the -Chicago Journal. Will the economical miss decide that since they do not show it is fool ish to invest in chiffon, lace-clocked or sheerest silk stockings? Will she not rather put her stocking money into skirts? Some say yes; some say no. But, surely, if she cares to buy “fus sy” hosiery she never had better op portunity for real worth and dainti ness. One of the newest and most at tractive models Is a double stocking of glove silk. The outside sheath Is black, woven In a stripe pattern, alter nating stripes being transparent, through which the inner stocking of white shimmers faintly. Other stockings have sheer lace In serts in front, ami while the embroid ered clock on any except woolen stockings seems to be waning, lace clocks are found in the new’ models and are much in demand. Silk that simulates wool is one of the new’est developments in the stock ing world and one that will be wel comed by women who like the semi sport costume for business, yet who also demand the comfort of silk stock- THE THREE-PIECE FALL SUIT Ln j t JMHL M KB mi MHKJ!H This is a fashionable tnree-piece euit conceived in beautiful blue matelasse, finished with squirrel collar and cuffs.

Ihind-mndp binuses have made an enviable place for themselves the last season, and nil signs Indicate that their popularity Is to continue for fall and winter, says the Indianapolis News. The advance line contains many Interesting features. Real Irish Ince in its loveliest pat terns is most extensively used as a trimming for these Porto Rican blouses, and antique filet and the usual filet also shown. These fine French voile waists are made for all year-’round wear, but each season pre sents Its new style, and this year a new color Is Introduced. “Radio” is the name given to a most agreeable gray tone featured for fall. The fine voile in which it Is shown looks like an exceptionally good-looking georgette. Those numbers of handsomest at tainments present an all-over lacey as pect that Is achieved by a profusion of Irish lace Introduced In squares and eased Into the voile by tiny inserting of real hand-made val in ecru color. These portions of the waist that are voile are lavishly hemstitched and even embroidered In a dainty design, the epsemble giving a rich appearance, only made possible by the finest work manship and use of exquisite materi als. Much attention has been gven the development ‘of models with square necks and tuxedo collars, type® which lend themselves so well to the digni fied and more mature figure.

Skunk fur trim mings and a heavy girdle of tasseled silk relieve the severity of the smoke gray repp in its straight lines. Ings. These hose come in lovely colors —brown and tun mixtures with tiny flecks of heliotrope, mixtures where blue is the predominating color, and there are those with green dominat ing. Dealers predict an unprecedented sale of woolen and silk-and-woolen stockings for this season. Again the long skirt is the cause —in cold weath er wool stockings undoubtedly are more comfortable than the trimmer looking silk. Hidden beneath a long skirt, their bulkiness becomes a neg ligible consideration, and many women who before refused them will welcome their warmth. Gunmetal is one of the newest and most popular colors found in the sea son’s hosiery displays. It runs out on the one side Into the darkest of taupes and on the other into light grays. Beaver, caramel, otter, beige, tan, rich brown—ln fact, any of the varying shades of brown whose nam ing has taxed the ingenuity of the en tire selling world—are ultra-fashion able. The lighter tan shades are, of course, giving way to the darker as the season advances and the “nude” color, so popular last spring, is passe. Os course, for evening there are the lighter colors —blues, pink, coral, peach, orchid —to be worn with the new colored brocade dancing slippers.

FLEXIBLE CORSET IN FAVOR Old “Straight Jacket” Is Banished Forever; New Style Liked by Stout Women. Corsets continue to be the veritable backbone of good costumery for all ex cept the unusually slender, the ex tremely graceful, the very young or the professional gymnasts among women. The season’s showing In cor setry, however, sets forth garments as far removed from the corsets of even five years ago as the automobile Ir from a pushcart. The stiff Iron-clad cages that were own sisters to straight Jackets, are gone forever. Even the stoutest women are offered dainty garments of flexibility, ease and suppleness, with which to confine their too enthusiastic curves. American women find that some support for the abdominal and back muscles is a ne cessity In their strenuous lives and foreign firms are importing American models to copy. Straight lines, either In laced fronts or with back lacing, boning of almost gossamer weight, but of Damascuß steel strength, much fine elastic webbing, beautiful brocades, the finest of rare laces and rich embrold erlee and ribbons are found in every mode of corsetry, from the brassiere with attacned liip reducer to ths mere dancing girdle, with pendant garter® Deft Fingers Help Santa To Screen the Phone i I p-p- jpwra Hi v/ijik/jLJ Little conveniences that adorn the Douse carry messages of good will at Christmas time.

The card board back is cut out to form an easel support. Gay Little Pin Trees We can help start the new year right by giving Christmas gifts of little pin trees to onr women and girl friends. Two corks and a florist’s pin, sharpened at both ends, make the foundation for the pin tree illustrated. The large cork—of wood—ls painted green and the smaller cork Is gilded. They are joined by the long pin, and Into the glided cork many pins, with colored beads, are thrust, to form a tree. A band of baby ribbon, tied about the larger cork, holds small safety pins.

(Frtpared br the United Stat.. Department of Agriculture.) Sometimes a housekeeper finds she has everything necessary for a salad except the lettuce. In such a case the United States Department of Agricul ture suggests that finely shredded cab bage, either red or white, will answer for the r, bed” for the salad, or that any cooked or canned vegetables, as well ar. many fresh ones, may be served with salad dressing without the customary lettuce leaf. Fresh cel ery Is an appetizing addition to most salads when It can be obtained, but It is not necessary. Cabbage for use as a salad foundation should be finely shredded, not chopped, and put in cold water for about an hour to be come crisp. Canned vegetables should always be heated to the boiling point and then cooled before using In salad. P fferent Salad Dressings. There are three basic salad dress ings of which most other dressings are adaptations. The following recipes are tested and recommended by the United States Department of Agricul ture. French Dressing. t tablespoonfuls oil H teaspoonful salt I tablespoonful via- teaspoonful pep egar per Cayenne Paprika Blend the oil with the seasonings and add the vinegar slowly. French dressing may be made in quantities, kept in a cold place and stirred or shaken In a bottle vigorously when needed. French dressings are prefer able for dinner salads. Vinaigrette sauce is made by adding to French dressing a teaspoonful each of chopped capers, olives, parsley and small cucumber pickles. Mayonnaise Dressing. 1 egg 2 tablespoonfuls 1 teaspoonful mus- vinegar tard 2 cupfuls oil ‘i teaspoonful salt Cayenne Place the egg, mustard, salt, cay enne and vinegar In a bowl. Boat well with a Dover egg beater till thorough ly blended, then add one tablespoonful of the oil and beat again. Continue adding the oil gradually until one cup- COOK CUTS OF BEEF IN APPETIZING WAY Less Gas Needed for Stews Than for Broiling. Some Dishes Are Not in Favor Be cause of Haphazard Manner in Which They Are Prepared— Much Meat Is Wasted. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) With a properly regulated flame, less gas Is needed to prepare a stew or a tongue or to “boil” (simmer) a piece of corned beef, or other cheaper cuts of beef that Is required to broil a thick steak properly, says the United Slates Department of Agriculture. Stews. Meat stews are not In great favor. This may’ be because they are so often prepared In a haphazard way. Try se lecting lean beef from the neck, bris ket, the shoulder clod, or the heel of the round and making a brown stew. Cut the beef Into inch cubes. Sea son each piece, dredge thoroughly with flour, and brown on all sides in a frying pan using suet or drippings. Avoid having too much fat. Then add Just enough hot water to cover the pieces and when this has boiled up once pour all into a double boiler and cook for three hours. The gravy may need to be thickened nt the last with a little flour. Serve with baked pota toes, plain cooked rice, or hot biscuits. Boiled Beef. Strictly speaking, no meat Is ever cooked satisfactorily by being actually boiled in water. To prepare so-called “boiled" beef, plunge the meat into boiling water to harden the surface a little and prevent too rapid an escape of the Juices. Finish the cooking by simmering, allowing plenty of time for the process. Corned Beef. Too often corned beef is served un derdone and a great deal of good meat Is wasted because of this. Try cooking n piece of corned beef by simmering it In a liberal amount of water for from three to six hours according to the cut. The water In this case should be cold when the process is begun. Beef longue and heart are also much better when cooked by simmering for several , hours or until thoroughly tender. Anti < ne of the tougher cuts of beef ■»ov be in era red satisfactorily If well I PAGE SEVEN ful has been used, then add in larger amounts. Mayonnaise is liked for luncheon or supper salads, where the salad is tho principal dish or is preceded by a very light course. It is considered too rich to be appropriate for a hearty dinner. Boiled Dressing. *4 to ’,2 tablespoon- 1% tablespoonfuls ful salt flour IV4 tablespoonfuls Yolks 2 sugar IVs tablespoonfuls 1 teaspoonful mus- melted butter tard % cupful milk V 4 cupful vinegar Mix dry Ingredients, add yolks of eggs slightly beaten, butter, milk, vin egar very slowly. Cook In a double boiler until it thickens. Strain and cool. This dressing is useful In a fam ily where oil is not liked. Sweet or sour cream may be used Instead of milk. Many of the cooked vegetables, such as carrots, peas, cabbage, beets, cauli flower, kohlrabi, or Jerusalem arti chokes make a good salad when served cold, either alone or In combi nation with celery, or with several other vegetables; canned string beans, asparagus, beets, peas, peppers and okra all lend themselves well to use In salads. Asparagus is particularly good when served hot with hot vinai grette sauce described above. Soup meat, which Is often discarded because it has little flavor, still con tains much nourishment. If cut in pieces nnd mixed with a hot vinai grette sauce it makes an excellent luncheon or supper salad. When cold it Is good in sandwiches. Fish and meat salads are almost complete meals. Cottage cheese salad with mayonnaise dressing is an im provement to many vegetable and also to fruit salads. A spoonful may be served on one side of the salad, or it may be mixed with chopped nuts and mayonnaise and made Into balls for ga rnishlng. When one considers that the salad list also Includes oranges, berries, ba nanas. either fresh or canned peaches and pears, and other available fruits, it is easy to see that the number of possible combinations is endless. I seasoned, browned In a little fat. placed J in a covered casserole or roaster and cooked slowly for some hours. A little water should be added to keep the meat moist. It should be remembered that it Is the long cooking at a low temperature that brings success in the preparation of the tougher cuts of meat. MONEY SAVED MAKING TAPE Many “Tricks of the Trade” Taught In Home Dressmaking Classes— Idea of lowa Woman. There are many little "tricks of the trade" taught in home dressmaking classes conducted by extension work ers, which are much appreciated by mothers who must also learn bow to economize In every way. One such trade practice of value in home-sewing Is the making of bias tape. An lowa woman found she could make 4(1 yards of bias tape from a yard of 36-Inch material. She picked up three rem nants of gingham nnd percale, each piece n yard long, and at a cost of 48 cents nnd n time investment of 45 minutes made 104 yards of tape which was one-half to three-quarters Inch wide when finished.
