Perfume, according to them, should not be applied to the : clothing or handkerchiefs, or in little dabs behind the ears (as most American women apply It), but should be applied directly to the skin, spread over It In lavish quan tities. Applied In this way. scent becomes an intrinsic part of the personality, being modified differ ■ ently by the different texture of i each skin, and so acquiring a warm er and richer, as well as an In dividual fragrance. A lovely and refreshing prepara tlon known as “skie. perfume.” j which should serve a double pur pose In the sticky summer month.* (since It is cooling and stimulating as well as fragrant) Is produced by this French bouse. The skin per fume comes. Incidentally, in the fresh and delica'e scent of lilac, 1 unprecedentedly popular this year both as spring and summer shade and as floral perfume.

Os c«»ur*e we could, we aald. bring them right over. It would be bully to have them. Ju*t send along a list as what what they were allowed to sat. and leave the rest of It to u* The youngster*, aged three and one and a half, arrived, under e* cort the following aftern«N*n. It wa* thought best not to tell them that their mother was going away, so while the boy. Cubby, was aiiiu* ing himself by cha»ing the cat. she »lip|ied off. Hardly had she gone before Sister, five girl, asserted a joint claim on the cat. and attempt ed to enforce It by laying a firm hold <>n Its tall and wrenching It away from her brother. A crisis oc curred instantly. Ihstrnsfful of a person who would attack him In the j rear the creature clung to Cubby, sinking her claws Into the sleeves : of his little jacket, through which they protruded Just far enough to bring a terrific howl from him. The lodine that we applied to the •cratch brought forth another and a louder howl, but several selec tions from a box of candy I had brought home was balm for the hurt wound. Meanwlhle Sister concealed herself under a reading table, from j which she presently emerged with an angelic smile and headed for the dining room, where she began In vestigating a howl of gold fish. I arrived Just in time to rescue these creatures from being dumped ruth lessly on the floor. By this time I was beginning to wonder if it had been the best of Judgment to entertain these young people. It also occurred to me that the Idea thut you could take young children or leave them alone wasn’t good. Os course we had gone through the same kind of an experi ence with our own offspring, hut that was, so to speak, under com pulsion. The afternoon was difficult. For a time the angels would he playing in perfect harmony, and agreeing like birds in their little nests. Then Hubby would, for no fathomable rea son, tweak his sister’s ears, and she. thoturti only a year and a half, would retaliate with any missile that came to her hand, such as a wooden horse or a toy umbrella. We began to look forward to night fall. But that blessed relief still lay beyond a sea of troubles. Caller came. Childless callers.. They arrived In the midst of a dis agreement over the possession of a banana which Cubby had discovered in a foraging expedition to the kitchen. In his view finders were lepers. But his sister dissented. She had few words, but she used these with eloquence. One of them was “No, No!” which she screamed at the top of her voice every time Cubby s'nnding aloof on a chair sought to take a bite out of his prize. The other was “Itaa Baa" which we learned afterwards was not an attempt to imitate a sheep, hut which was to be translated as “Rad ! Bad !" The callers affected to he amused, but one of them suddenly remembered that she must I catch a train In fifteen minutes. So they departed, smiling—ns far as the front porch. Time for supper arrived. Cubby Insisted that he wns to eat every thing that we did. and that his par ents allowed him to have pie. While, when the pie was refused to him, ho devoted a little time to tears, his sister drove a tablespoon which she had found somewhere Into the cen ter of the pie and disposed of a large bite of It before anybody had the pr**sence of mind to stop her. A further argument alauit bed time ensued. “We go to lied when we want to at our house." said Cub by. “Sometimes we sit up, oh! terrible late.*’ I pictured another hour of respon sibility for what might hap|>en If | these children stayed awake any longer. “Here," I said, “you go to l>ed j right after supper—why, where is Sister?" “She always hid'** at bedtime," j said Cubby—“the little bum." “You mnsn't sjieak that way of 1 your sister.” I said. “That's what mamma says." re plied Cubby. “Hut then she tells me to (ell the truth, and she is a little hum. Ain't you a little hum. you little hum?" This to Sister. There was no response, and turn ing to look at the accused I discov ered %v by. She had slipped from her chair. And the pie had dis appeared with her. How she man aged to remove It from the table without observation Is still a mys tery which Is beyond my power to fnthom. It was merely the wreck of a pie w lien It was retrieved, and I had visions of an extremely 111 child later on. Hut nothing like that hapi>enod. and I began to won der If perhajm we had not been too careful In laying down the dietary of the mother of these astonishing Infants. A bowl of rnge arose when. Im mediately after dinner I suggested a bedtime story, and a nice long sleep. “My father says.” said Cub by, “that you ran go to bed when there's no place else to go.” "Ikin't you have any regular bed time?” “Sister does, hut I stay up till half past eight.” I looked around. “Where Is Sis ter?” “Oh. she’s hiding out. I guess. She always hides out when It's tied time. Sometimes It takes all the evening to find her.” In this case It took only a half an hour. Sister had returned under the table again. We got her out In time for her to Join her tears with those of her brother when I took one of them under each arm and carried them to their resting places. “Can It!” said Cubby briefly, when I began an animal story. "It's old stuff. Tell me about the movie pic ture you saw last, that’s what iny father does.” Peremptorily I declined. The only movies I had seen recently were not for the young, and I could remem ber none that were. The next morning I sent for a trained nurse and delivered my grand-offspring Into her hands. I am Immoderately fond of them when their [larents are by to direct their activities.

The eyes can he sucri traitors, and we do things before we know It. A glance can wound, and I know m!ue did. Two small girls came Into rlie hotel dining room with their mother. I hsd seen them before and stopped to talk to them. Both were friendly, hut the dark one had star (tolnts In her eyes and was altogether charm ing In their little plaid dresses and great red hats at luncheon they were pictures—the one pale and piquant, the other fair and rounded. Both were pretty, but the little blond had away of catching the eye first. I don’t know why, but one senses !n --stantly, when one understands chil dren, that the elder one was sup posed to he the beuuty of the family, the one with the sunny hair. I looked over and grinned. Little brunette facing me smiled back, a lovely look on her face that said as plainly as If she had spoken, "We're friends, aren’t we?” Then I behaved badly. Quite In voluntarily my eyes turned to the other. She was busy fixing her hat Hack to the other, then, like a flash, hut It was too late. She had turned, sideways, and looked pensively at the floor.
