ouses are, and style Is an Important
wnent that enters Into Its make-up
?ry season. It continues to flourish
8 the strength of being both couifort
e and smart.
Sweaters this season, shown In silk
d in wool, also In fiber silks In great
rlety, are made mostly In two-color
ublnntlons. Many of them are knlt

ugly at the waistline, and equally as
any depend upon a 'sash or belt, like
e sweater, to give them a little defl-
lon of the waist. Nearly all of them
ve rather ample collars and many
long them some of the finest mod-
are furnished with pockets.
The slip-on sweater Is one of the
heater successes of this particular
jason. Its name signifies that It has
front opening, but slips on over the
ad, and It Is made with and without
sash and pockets; the silk models

Our Food Supply and Our Allies
Every one of us must share, whether
wo will or not, In tho burden of the
cost of the war. The common-sense
thing to do Is to determine now how
wo can help lighten this burden for
ourselves and for others who are al
ready carrying about as much as they
can bear. There are many well-to-do
families In every community who are
not- Inconvenienced by the Increased
prices of foodstuffs, but this burden
benrs heavily on their poorer neigh
bors. Therefore It Is the duty of tho
well-to-do to economize in food and to
forbid all waste of It In their house
holds, In order to make it more, plenti
ful for others.
This year America must feed Itself
and share its food with all Its allies,
and tho chances are that prices will
soar again. There may not be just
enough to go all round, and some
people will then go hungry. It Is un
patriotic arid unchristian to waste food
now, and every housewife can best
show her patriotism by conserving it
In every way known to her.

By way of suggestion, two pretty ac
cessories of dress made of ribbon are
pictured here. One of them Is a break--fast
cap of white satin ribbon and
white crochet lace that will rejoice tho

Is finished with a full rosette of nar
row satin ribbon, and It. Is very rich

Tho corset cover Is made of flow

" 'Gorgeous,' they all shouted.
"Now of course there are foolish
people In the world who don't know

be sure, there nro many reasons why
grown-ups should not like mud. It
spntters their clothes nnd makes their
shoes very dirty and altogether It Is

look well every minute of the time.
