Latest in Winter Millinery; Frocks for THE story of winter millinery Is ended except for those beautiful, frivolous and ephemeral affairs for dances and the theater, that are its epilogue. Designers must now turn their thoughts to spring. . The dignity and beauty of this sea ion's shapes seemed to demand velvet and It has played the star part among nOllnery fabrics.

It was when they believed in "the awkward rge." Girls were supposed to arrive at a period In their development when nothing could be made to look well upon them, a sort of pin-feather stage, and their clothes were relegated to Gay Color in Scarfs. Fiber silk scarfs and some woolen ones are again making their appear ance for wear with sport clothes, top coats and suits generally. The fiber scarfs are of about the same gay col oring and length as were so popular last spring and. even though the "flap per" Is disappearing, these scarfs are much In demand with the young girls.

Bake about ne-half hour in a moderate oven. Tongue on Toast. This makes a nice breakfast dish and utilizes the rough pieces of boiled tongue. Mince the tongue, adding a bit of onion Juice, nutmeg, salt and pepper and ?hopped green pepper a tablespoon Tul of the latter Is sufficient. Trepare a rich white sauce, using half of the quantity of liquid of the broth that Hie tongue was cooked In, and half at milk; cook with two tablespoonfuls of flour and butter well blended, or sweet cream may be used, omitting the flour and butter; add the tongue and pour over squares of buttered toast. Serve hot. Gateau a la Africane. Beat three ?Egs, add three-quarters of a cupful of sugar and the same of flour.

Be sure to keep the bread all through the process of rising in a vanu place, free from drafts. Raisin Pie. Take a pound package if seeded raisins, out fine with shears.

BETTER ROADS TESTING SKEW-ARCH BRIDGE Reinforced Concrete Structure Erect ed to Find Means for Strength ening the Arch. (Prepared by the United States Department ot Agriculture.) A reinforced concrete skew-arch bridge one-fourth the size of a full-size bridge has been built by the bureau of public roads of the United States Department of Agriculture and is being "tested to destruction" to gain information that will make pos sible the building of stronger struc tures of this type. There are many locations where It Is necessary to carry a highway di agonally across a stream, engineers Testing a Skew-Arch Bridge. explain. Under such conditions It ii customary to build what is known as a skew bridge, and when that bridge is an arch, the arch is known as a skew arch, the abutments or supports not being at right angles with the roadway. When the abutments are at right angles to the axis of the arch the structure Is known as a right arch. Engineers can design right arches very economically, but there is a great dif ference of opinion with regard to thi economical design of the so-called skew arch. The principal difference of opinion among engineers is with regard to the manner in which the load Is transmit ted to the abutments. In the right arch the load on the abutments Is the same for each foot of length, but on the skew arch this probably Is not the case, and the Important question to be settled is the distribution of the load from one end of the abutments to the other. It was with this object In view that a series of tests has been started on skew arches b7 the bureau of public roads. At the present time the bu reau has under way at Its Arlington experiment station a test on a skew arch designed to be one-quarter the size of an actual structure. The arct belt--; tested Is 7 feet In span, 4 feel in width from face to face, and 4 feet in height above the base of the abut ments. The crown or midpoint is 1 Inches In thickness and the barrel ol the arch Is reinforced with 4-inet bars bent very carefully into the cor rect shape. The arch is being tested with a uni form load and this loading is being accomplished in a unique manner, as follows: Forty-two spiral springs each capable of carrying a load of 1, 500 pounds, are placed at uniform In tervals on top of the arch and eact spring supports a 2-lnch pipe, which in turn bears against a solid overhead structure. By adjusting the lengths of these pipes the springs are deflected and the amount of load applied to the arch may be controlled by the amount the springs are compressed. In this way it Is possible to obtain fine ad justments in the amount of load ap plied without the necessity for piling on heavy weights. As the load is In creased on the arch It deflects and the concrete and steel are deformed or strained, and the engineer wants to know how those strains are distrib uted. For the measurement of strains in the concrete a device known as a strain guage is being used. With this device It is possible to detect strains with an accuracy of .0002 of an inch. By carefully measuring the strains throughout the arch It Is possible to determine the manner in which the stress Is distributed, and it is believed that through a series of such tests enough information will be obtained to enable the engineer to formulate rules for the economical design of skew arches. In addition to determining the strains in the arch, the observations Include measurements of deflection of the arch under load as well as a mens urement of the stress in the tie rods between the abutments.

POVERTY IN BRITISH CAPITAL Returned Traveler Tells of Pathetie Cases to Be Seen on the Streets of London. "We may have unemployment, strikes and dull times," said a man Just returned from Europe the other day, "but we know nothing of the poverty common In European cities.

The penny will be accepted and the recipient touches his cap in acknowledgement "The point Is that In any street crowd In London, even In tie best streets, there always seems to be some one on the lookout to earn a penny, often a man who shows signs of hav ing known better days."

According to recent statistics pre pared by the National Tuberculosis association, two and one-half years would be added to the life of each Individual In the United States if tuberculosis were eliminated as a cause of death. During the past 17 years the death rate from the disease has been reduced exactly one-half, but there are still more than 1,000,000 cases of tuberculosis in the country. Tuberculosis workers, encouraged by the results of their efforts, are plan ning a more Intensive campaign for the coming year In order to spread further education regarding the dis ease among the public, as It is their conviction that It can In time be en tirely eradicated. Latin an Aid to Business. Persons who wish to become pro ficient In business English should study Latin, according to Dr. J. Duncan Spaeth, professor of English at Prince ton university, because the study of Latin gives the necessary training in the fundamental laws of syntax and grammatical structure. It also serves as an Introduction to word structure and word derivation. Doctor Spaeth believes that a business man should have a knowledge of from 100 to 500 Latin words and their derivatives as the basis for good business English.

But when constipation exists this nat ural lubricant is not sufficient Medi cal authorities have found that the gentle lubricating action of Nujol most closely resembles that of Nature's own lubricant As Nujol Is not a laxative It cannot gripe.
