The new furs are Ideally becoming.
Never have we had more picturesque
and wearable models shown in the

correspondent. All the famous dress
makers and tailors of Paris are now
showing what may be called “fancy
furs;” that is to say, fur garments
which are designed and treated as
velvet or silk might be.

prevails. And it is really very becom
ing when correctly worn. We have
barrel capes which only reach to the
knees and other models which cover
the dress entirely.
A lovely barrel wrap designed by
Max was made of musquash, lined with
deep blue and rose brocade and fin
ished off with an immense roll-over
collar of kolinsky. This was a regal
affair and of course costly, as the mus
quash was in an exquisite quality. I
have seen similar models in mink and
in broadtail, with the linings always
of the richest and softest brocades or
striped silks.
For girls the latest thing is the short
fur wrap which is shaped like a fichu
and which crosses in front and fastens
at the back with a large button and
loop. This is an eminently cozy gar
ment, and so becoming. It must of
course be worn by a girl of slender
figure, otherwise the full fur over the
shoulders and chest would make the
irest of the figure look clumsy. Bui

slender and graceful—a fichu wrap in

Lingerie straps, which can be trans

You might make them of batiste and
trim them with fine cross-stitching in
pastel colors. You might hemstitch
them in colors, or you might button

Then you might make them of satin
—white washable satin preferably.
These are very attractive when they
are trimmed with small chiffon llow

Ribbon may also be used. French

successfully as means of trimming
these straps.

Swearing Off
Resolved: That after January 1
I’ll conquer every evil habit,
And if one shows its ugly head,
Directly through the heart I’ll
stab it.
Resolved: That lying is a vice — >
All moralists alike decry it.
Henceforth 1 will not tell a lie
Unless I can make something by it!
Resolved: That gossiping’s a crime
To be condemned with censure icy.
Hereafter I will tell no tales
Unless they're singularly spicy.
Resolved: That robbery is sin,
And so I will not rob my neighbor
In any way that might involve
A term in prison at hard labor.
Resolved: That I will go to church,
(Unless some other occupation
Seems more attractive at the time),
And so enhance my reputation.
Resolved: In short, that I will be
A moral man, as some men view it,
And when the path of virtue lures,
That I will zealously pursue it!

WEARING OFF” is said to
have originated in the
twelfth century with Louis
IX of France, who decreed
that on a certain New
Year’s day the soldiers of
his army should take a
vow to refrain from indulgence In
strong drink for a whole year.
The practice of beginning the new
year with good resolutions, however,
is very, very old. The custom goes
back to the beginnings of recorded his
tory and was common to many peoples.
Time was when the New Year’s
resolution was a solemn affair, marked
by elaborate religious ceremonies. For
example, the Japanese, 300 years be
fore Christ, made much of the day. All
outstanding accounts and debts were
cleared away, all enmities were ended
under penalty of the law. The dwell
ing house was swept and garnished;
old furniture and old clothing were
cast away in exchange for new in the
belief that the assumption of a new
conscience was complete only with the
assumption of a new covering for the
By contemporary peoples was the
New Year day regarded as time of sol
emn renunciation of all follies and an
amendment for the future. In the days
of the Pharaohs the Egyptians sym
bolized their purification with elabor
ate baths and fasting; the Persians
and Phoenicians greeted the New Year
with prayer to the heathen images and
with flagellations.
With the passing of the centuries old
New Year’s vows have lost their for
mal character. “Turning over a new
leaf’’ is now a matter of individual
and not national concern. “Swearing
off” is even a favorite jest with the
humorist and cartoonist.
Nevertheless, the modern man is
more sensitive to the appeal of the
New Year than he shows in public.
What makes the New Year is the new
ness of life that human nature brings
into it. It is a New Year to everybody
according as everybody tries to live
over again, and pushes forward and
turns plan to action and discourage
ment to hope. People rely too much
on resolutions to make a year new.

Best Wishes
I wish that we might seek and find
That which would benefit mankind;
A joy that would infold the earth
And hourly visit at each hearth.
A ray of sunlight to the blind,
A bit of heart to the unkind;
An understanding gift to some
To help along another one.
To those who wish good deeds to do
Success for them I’m wishing, too;
And those whose lives a burden bear,
I wish that I might take a share.
And all the ones who hungry go,
I wish into their hands might flow
A wealth of coin for things to eat
That they could have both drink and
For those who feel cold winter’s blast
Warm clothes and shelter I would

EST WISHES” will be writ

JL# on millions of New Year’s
cards this year as usual.
Whaddayamean “Best Wishes?” Sure
ly all “Best Wishes” are not all alike.
They are as different as best girls—
who are generally supposed to be best
because “so different.” Well, here’s
some sample “Best Wishes” which are
out of the ordinary, anyway:
“My best wish for myself is that
John will learn to see things the way
I do,” said a charming newlywed.
“And,” she added, “maybe that’s a real
good wish for John, too.”
“I wish I could make my wife hap
py,” said Jimmie.
“I wish I could make my husband
jealous,” said his wife. “He wants me
to be happy and he doesn’t care how.
If he only loved me the way I love
him he wouldn’t want any such thing.
I don’t believe there’s a man living
who knows what love means.”
“My best wish for all my friends,”
said a writer, “is that they should have
financial success. Perhaps money can’t
buy happiness but it can buy all sorts
of things to keep happiness in. It can
buy health and strength, freedom from
anxiety and leisure to do the things
you want to do. I never had any un
happiness that money couldn’t cure,
aside from the actual death of a loved
one; and In one case money could
have prevented that. It doesn’t follow
that a man will be happy because he
is rich; but if a rich man knows how
to be happy, he has a cinch. A poor
man may know how and be all the
more miserable for knowing. I wish
with all my heart that you had a mil
lion —and would lend me' about four
“What I want first is life,” said the
alleged philosopher. “The will to live
is fundamental, and needs no explana
tion. I want health, because without
it I am half dead. I want food, shel
ter and clothing to sustain life; and I
want association with my fellows in
order to expand It. I want freedom to
satisfy these wants to the fullest ex
tent ; therefore, I want everyone to be
free. And I want everyone to want
freedom so that they will co-operate
with me in getting it. I want knowl
edge to understand my wants and give
me the power to satisfy them; and I
want others to share this knowledge
so that we can work together for still
greater satisfaction. I want no master
to restrict my energies, and no slave
to restrict my Independence. I want
cultured and educated people about
me; therefore, I want everyone to have
education and culture. I want to live
in a world where no one is nervous, or
worried or afraid. Therefore I want
to abolish poverty and the competition
of man against man. I want all the
energies which the world Is now ex
hausting ir. war applied to the manu
facture of the things we want. And I
want these things distributed freely
for the people’s use, by a system of
distribution which would make war un
thinkable. So I don’t want much—only
a world-wide revolution.”
“There’s no need of wishing you
prosperity,” said a young woman of
sixty-five. “That is equivalent to wish
ing that somebody else has worse luck
than you. I can’t wish you more hap
piness, because that may mean any
thing from intoxication to vegetation.
What I wish for you is youth—the con
stant consciousness that life is ahead
of you, not behind, and a constant wil
lingness to go ahead and welcome it.”
“My best wish,” said a man who
thinks he is a thinker, “Is that your
own best wish comes true. The trouble
with most people is that they want you
to have what they want and think you
ought to want, not what you actually
do want yourself. I don’t know what
you want most and I don’t care, but I
hope you get it.”
