DODQE TAXES ON BILLIONS.
A GIFT FROM THE ENEMY.
, Printed Swisses with flower designs
over a plain or dotted surface have
appeared In attractlro guise, and a
clever combination was effected In a
little Swiss frock of whlto dotted
Swiss trimmed with English embroid
ery with two bands of embroidery run
ning down to the waist line, forming a
panel, which was trimmed with ruf
fles of Valenciennes lace. The full
skirt was trimmed with ruffles of Va
lenciennes. Another whlto frock,
more lavishly trimmed, with Valen
ciennes Insertion and lace, had small
medallions of flno Swiss embroidery
in Its trimming. On tho Bkirt and
around tho body of the blouse ran
alternato rows of Inset Insertion and
medallions and tucks.
For Rainy Days.
Tho day has, Indeed, passed by
when women go about on rainy dayB
or dusty days arrayed in old cloth
ing. Tho woman who"goe3 out these
days in tho rain wearing cast off cloth
ing stamps herself as being either very
-untidy, or very much poverty stricken.
She Is not a smartly dressed woman
and In these days of cheap rain togs
thero is llttrb excuse for her.
' Sugared Almonds.
Sugared almonds In placo of salted
ones are now preferred and tho recipe
for their preparation la the following:
Remove tho skins of tho almonds after
having poured boiling water over
them"; then placo them In melted but
ter, about two tablespoonfuls, leaving
them to stand on tho back of tho
Tange for about an hour. Pour off tho
Tjutteri put the almonds In a shallow
pan and cook In a moderate oven for
a quarter of nn hour. Put threo table
spoonfuls of sugar In a small frying
pan, set over tho flro and Btir until
it melts thoroughly; then when tho
sugar becomes liquid turn in tho al
monds, stir for a fow seconds and
spread on a plate to cool.
German Breakfast Cake.
Keep from tho bread dough enough
lor a large loaf just beforo tho last
rising. Add to this dough three eggs,
a cup of seeded raisins, a cup of
cleaned currants, ono and a half-tea-spoonful
each of cinnamon of minced
citron, a half-pound of butter and a
half-teaspoonful each of cinnamon and
nutmeg. Mix and knead thoroughly.
Set aside to rlso as you would bread,
only adding to tho usual time for
bread fifteen minutes, as it needs a
llttlo longer to become light enough.
How to Starch Napkins.
A good laundress never allows her
napkins to be too stiff. They aro
glossy and just stiff enough and this is
how it is done: After washing tnem
she dries them in the air If possible.
She then dips a large, soft, clean
cloth into starch and rolls tho dry
napkins In this, spreading them out
on tho starched cloth, which also is
spread out, rolling up all together.
When Ironed they will have acquir
ed the desired satiny stiffness which is
such a charm in a well-laundered
Box for the Shirt Waists.
Tho girl who is an adept at trans
forming old furniture with cretonne
and tacks has just evolved a desira
ble shirt waist box from a small, old
fashioned, woodon trunk. Sho began
by scraping off all tho old lining pa
per and pasting a dainty calico over
tho entire Inside. A flounco of pret
ty cretonne was tacked on tho out
side all around, the top was padded
with an old quilt with cretonne
smoothed over It, and a four-Inch ruf
fle at the edge (covering the opening)
put on ,wlth brass-headed tacks makes
it look llko a French dower box.
Plaited Linen Waist.
Blouse of linen made with plaits at
the shoulders and a double box plait In
front. The little plastron is orna
mented with buttons and tho cravat
and girdle aro of silk.
Tho sleeves are full at tho top,
where they aro made with crosswise
plaits and Inverted plaits and are fit
ted below and trimmed with a band
of the material ornamented with buttons.
Wide Belts for Children.
So many hundreds of women have
gotten into the habit of dressing tnelr
young ones, boy and girl, with narrow
leather belts with tiny buckle, that
It would sound discouraging to them
to advocate the wldo belt.
However, it is true that tho latter
are at the top of fashion.
Many children wear the narrow ones
and will continue to do so, but If you
would bo smart, tho threo and four
inch soft leather belt is tho one to
Don't got tho stiff ones. Thoy aro
ungainly, give an awkward lino to tho
llttlo figure, and are very warm. Tho
latter Is especially truo of patent
Girl's Woolen Drest.
Tho short skirt forms a box plait
In front, and is finished at tho bottom
with a wldo band of soutacho em
broidery. Tho long blouse, with slightly
crossed fronts bordered with embroid
ery, opens over a tucked chomlsotto of
whlto batiste. Tho girdle Is of leather.
Tho Bleovcs aro puffed at tho top, fitted
below and finished at tho wrists with
Select only small, whlto onions. Put
them over tho flro In cold water, with
a handful of salt When tho water
becomes scalding hot, take them out
and peel off the skins. Lay them In a
cloth to dry; then put them in a Jar.
Boll half an ounce of allsplco and
half an ounco of cloves in a quart of
vinegar. Tako out tho splco and pour
tho vinegar over the onions while it is
hot. TIo. up tho Jar when tho vinegar
Is cold and keep it In a dry place.
New and Elegant
Supremely olegant Is a frock of
satin-spotted gauze, a new fabric as
yet sacred to tho olito of the sartorial
world. In tho present instance the
spots aro largo ones sprinkled at In
tervals on a Sevres-blue ground. A
draped belt of the same colored taffeta
emphasizes tho beauty of this popular
huo, the under dress of whlto silk
serving to keep in countenance tho
trimmings of white applique lace on
tho outer robe. With tho latter toilet
a hat was worn with a swooping bluo
feather with a cluster of bluo mar
guerites beneath the brim. Tho hat
proper was of whlto straw.
Choices In Colors.
In dress materials tho colors aa well
as fabrics of gowns contrlbuto much
to the wearer's comfort. Whlto, vio
let, dim blues and string colors are to
be preferred always to deep tints and
all black should bo religiously avoid
ed, unless tho wearer is too stout to
wear anything else or is in mourning.
In material, wash fabrics aro always
more productlvo of comfort than wool
textures, no matter how thin tho latter
Makes the Blouse Effective.
A scatter of tulips In outline, drawn
upright with a curving leaf springing
from cither sldo of the stem, 'all work
ed in delicate green on whlto linen,
makes a wonderfully pretty blouse
front. Tho cuffs and neckband should
bo worked to correspond. So, also,
threo and four-leaved clover, outlined
on green silk and filled In with open
work lace stitches, make a decorativo
scatter for white and cream-colored
silk or linen shirt waists or blouses.
Delicious Coffee Cookies.
Beat half a cup of butter and a half
cup of lard to a cream with a cup of
brown sugar, add a cup of molasses,
stirring in a pinch of baking soda dis
solved in a tableBpoonful of hot water,
beat hard, stir In a cup of strong cof
fee, a tablespoonful of ginger and a
tablespoonful of cinnamon. Add
onough flour to make a dough that
can be rolled out, roll into a sheet
three-quarters of an inch thick, cut out
and bake for 16 minutes.
Features of New Belts.
Broad whlto suedo belts, with a
strip of pink, whlto or blue satin rjb
boa sewed through tho center, aro
being worn with white summer frocks
that aro trimmed with pink or blue
