Dominant Summer Styles.
The three styles that will be worn
most of all this summer are very
much like the old styles. It seems ab-
surd to mention them as new, yet they
have points which make them now.
There is the princess skirt, coming
up high enough to form a corselet or
girdle, wirh the overhanging Eton,
short in the back and long in the
There is the style which shows a
great deal of machine stitching; the
plaited skirt with short “pony” jacket,
half loose front'and back and trimmed
with braid or embroidery.
The kilted skirt with Eton coat and
girdle, made of cloth or linen, or thin
summer stuff, will be worn again. And
there will be the circular skirt, with
little loose coat, nicely trimmed with
hand work and made along the tail-
ored lines with plenty of stitching and
seams very neatly finished.
And, last, though it should have
been first, comes the circular skirt,
with its neat blouse finished so that
it makes a handsome suit for the
street. Thcst styles, with their varia-
tions and modifications, actually form
the list of the summer .suits.
Stylish Walking Suit.
The advance showing of spring
suits has a decided preference fo;
light-colored cloths, and the new
American Beauty red promises to be
exceedingly popular. Among the lew
pretentious models in this shade is
one which may be easily and suer:us-

“Haven't you and your friend got
through that argument yet?” asked a
parent of his youngest son. “It isn’t-
any argument,” answered the hoy. “I
am merely telling Jimmie the tacts in
the case, and he is so beastly stubborn
that he won’t understand.’'-—Chums.

While at the moment mauves and
grays are the reigning colors, bronze
brown, moss shades and navy blue
will again be among the fashionable
shades of the year. Apropos of navy
blue, one of the prettiest costumes yet
shown In this color has a scroll of
coarse silk braid on the front of the
bolero, with collar, cuffs, and belt of
dark chestnut. There is a tiny vest
and hem to the bolero of ivory cloth,
the sleeves being puffed from elbow
to shoulder, while the skirt is plain
except for an edging round the bot-
tom of the same kind of silk braid
which decorates the bolero.

Have You Eaten Them?
Until you have eaten a coddled egg
you don’t know just how delicious a
soft boiled egg can be. Have your
water boiling, and have ready an
earthen bowl or jar of some thickness
which you have previously made hot
Place your eggs in the bowl and pour
on the boiling water. Then cover
the bowl with a tight cover and put
over it also a cozy or a folded napkin.
In five or six minutes the e gs will
be done, sol! boiled to a consistency
that it is impossible to gain in the
ordinary way. One beauty of this
plan is that the eggs are plat ed on the
table together with the fruit, cereal
and coffee, and by the time one course
is finished, the eggs are ready, without
the necessity of watching over a stove
or of getting up from the table to go
after them in the absence of a maid.
Taffeta coats will be extremely
modish in the spring.
Evening gowns of chiffon velvet are
extremely good style.
Touches of rich old gold and black,
used together, is a new note.
There is an effort to push soft,
heavy surah silk for street wear.
Cashmere in all the new and old
colors is among the spring fabrics.
•Plaited skirts continue to be worn
by extremely well-gowned women.
Braids anti gimps come in all colors
to correspond with the neiv cloths.
Separate coats of cheviot and cov-
ert cloth are to be worn for morning.
Eyelet embroidery on silk, doth or
wash goods is as much favored as

From Leftover Vegetables.
Possibly both fresh and canned
meat is altogether lacking, but there
are some cold vegetables on hand—
some cauliflower, parsnips or carrots.
Put on the frying kettle and make
some fritter batter and one egg, one
tablespoonful of baking powder to
each cupful of flour. When without
eggs increase the amount of baking
powder, says the New York Mail. Add
tlie vegetables to the thick batter,
with more seasoning if needed, and
drop by small spoonfuls into the fat,
which should be smoking hot, and
cook until brown; or dip each piece
in the thin batter until coated, and
cook in the fat. Slices of hard-boiled
egg, pieces of cold fish, raw oysters
chopped clams, these and a dozen
other things may be used with this
fritter batter mixture.
About Your Mutt.
Don't use your muff as a shopping
bag. The furrier says a great many
women do this and that is why their
furs soon look shabby. Muffs were
made to hold a pair of hands and per-
haps a purse and handkerchief. They
were not made to hold bundles.
If you want your muff to keep nice
you mustn’t huddle a package up be-
tween it and your fur boa. This rubs
the hair off of both.
Never throw the muff down when
not using it. Hang it up by its cord
or a loop and in such manner that
it does not rest against anything.
The greatest care must be taken of
furs, particularly of lynx, which is an
extremely delicate fur.
An olive- placed in each bouillon cup
before pouring in the bouillon gives
the liquid an added and pleasing fla-
Coarse salt and vinegar will clean
enameled ware that has been burned
or discolored, The same will clean
brass or copper.
Before beginning to mix cakes at
all see that the tins or molds are care-
fully prepared. For rich cakes the
bottom and sides of the tins should
be lined wirh double paper cut to the
size and well buttered.
Housewives should know that pa-
per hags are made of a compound of
rags, lime, glue and other substances
mixed with chemicals and acids.
When dry these can do no harm, but
a damp paper bag is not fit to touch
any sort of food. This being the case,
no food of a damp or juicy nature
ought ever to be kept in a paper bag.
Timbale of Potatoes.
Cook, drain, mash and rub two
quarts of potatoes through a colander; j
put them in a -saucepan with six j
ounces of butter, two whole eggs, six j
egg yolks, salt, pepper and nutmeg j
Butter a timbale mold, sprinkle with ■
dry crumbs, roll beaten eggs ail over |
the inside and bread crumbs again.
Put the prepared potatoes in with a
little more bread crumbs and small
pieces of butter on top; bake for an
hour in a moderately hot oven. Put.
on a hot dish, allow’ it to remain for j
a while, then take off the mold and j
serve quickly. For the next follow ;
the mold and serve quickly.
Germany has found a peril in ap
pies. They are the principal mediun
for the propagation and spread oi
the destructive house moth (Glycy
phagus domesticus) according to ob
servations recently made.
The discovery was the result of i
plague of moths at Gries and the vil
lages surrounding it. The larvae wer<
traced to the stores of apples kept i*
the houses and thence to the treei
The larvae are found first of all it
the apple blossoms. As the fruit grow;
they duster in the conical depresslor
about the stem of the apple.
When the fruit is taken into th«
house it is laden wdth eggs. Th«
propagation of the eggs is said to b«
When the fruit is taken into chi
house the eggs find their way inte
clothing, hangings, carpets and uphol
stered furniture and the insect u
hatched out, with the well-known rit
inous results. The eggs are also saic
to be the cause of the w’hite mottling
that is so often noticed on dried
As a result of the discoveries it ii
urged that apples never be taken intc
dwellings without careful cleansing
and even then they should never bt
kept in living rooms, and the peeling!
should be promptly removed.
Ribbon and Ruchings.
An excellent effect is obtained by
threading ribbon in and out through
ruchings of lace, even wrhen no legiti-
mate opening is left for the purpose.
Strips of crepe de soie are also
pouffed in between bands of lace or
ruchings where the edges are irregu-
lar. the crepe being allowed to pouf
out here and there. Just few light
stitches will keep it in position.

Although little is said nowadays of
a tunnel under the Irish sea, yet it is
not impossible that at some future
date this project, which has been so
much canvassed, will ye! assume tang-
The Prophecy of the Fall.
The message of the fall is no
threnody over the dying year, but a
glad prophecy of the renewed life
which is to come.—Martha Bockee
Vogue of Dyed Lace.
And there can be a little blue lace j
applied to the softer of the cotton
print goods, those that make up

lace should be very delioate, a sort of I
pastel shade, light and tender, so to j
apeak, rather than deep 3nd glaring.
Pale blue lace is Frenohy. but deep
blue lace is not apt to be so good.
The Little Thing* of Life.
"A nod of approval or a hearty shake
of the hand—those little human things
that in some mysterious-way make the
pilot wheel of life spin more easily,
and give tha hands of our souls a
firmer grip on tha spokes. We may
scoff at them in our moments of ar-
rogant independence, but they do uot
come often enough in the lives of
most of us, to ever lose their first, nov-
elty or power.”—’The Balance
of Power *
