In neglecting your own physical

The intelligent woman gives

In keeping with your daytime
loveliness, you’ll want to be es
pecially lovely at night too. Have
you noticed the lovely lounging I
robes, house coats, and pajamas. |
They’re a dream. So daintily fem
inine. They’re styled for comfort,
as well as for becomingness, and
they’re styled in all the latest col
ors and materials. The charm of
these lounging garments lies in
their utter simplicity, the richness
of the fabrics from which they are
made and their full skirts with
their slim waistlines. They're sure
to bring out your best points and
make you look your loveliest.
, Seen in the shops are the love
liest of the loveliest. Here are two
which caught my eye.
The first is one of those slender
waisted, full skirted, housecoats j
in changeable taffeta. The bodice'
is embroidered with holly leaves
with their bright red berries. The
housecoat has large puffed sleev
es and a rounded collar. The slen
der silhouette is kept by the zipper
running the length of the garment.
(Zippers are an added essential in
keeping those graceful, slenderiz
ing silhouettes.)
The second one is charming in
its simplicity. It is made of bright ]
red flannel on princess lines, fitted
at; the waist, with a full zipper
front. The sleeves are loose, fall
ing to the wrist. The robe has a
quilted Indian design runnng from
shoulder to hem.
In either of these charming
lounging robes, you’ll love those
long winter evenings at home.

I think a steamed pudding is a
satisfactory dessert for a festive
dinne,’ that is sure to bring fam
ilies and friends together during
tho holiday season. You may de
cide upon a light or substantial
pudding or a simple or rich or per
haps a 'holiday pudding gay with
holly that will be the highlight of
the Xmas dinner.
Always remember this: that a
really good steamed pudding is no
better than its ingredients. The
suet must be very very fresh. Buy
the finest dried fruits and the best
flour. Be sure to sift it carefully
before measuring it.
Steamed puddings may be cook
ed in glass baking dishes, pudding
melds, empty baking powder boxes
or coffee tins. They should be
placed on a trivet or rack in a ket
tle of hot water, tightly covered.
The water should come up about
halfway round the molds and be
kept boiling, hot water added as
needed. The mold must be thor
oughly greased and filled not more
than two thirds full. Don’t lift
the cover if you can possibly avoid
it—-but, of course, if this is your
very first steamed pudding I'm
at'raiu your curiosity ’"ill get the
best of you.

Soak bread crumbs in milk anti

raisins cut in pieces and dredged
with flour. Sprinkle over with
baking powder and beat thorough
ly. Steam three hours and serve
with a rich hard sauce. Flavor the
hard sauce with sherry or with
rum. If you like or with brandy.
It makes that real Xmas-y tang.
When you turn the pudding out of
the mold for serving top it with a
