Worn e a of Few Frocks Do Well to
Close Their Byes to Its
This promises to be an expensive season
in dress. The furs, the velvets, the satins
the embroideries, all the beautiful materials
that rank high on fashion's list are costly
things. .
The woman of few frocks will do well to
close her eyes to the lure of the velvets.
They are beautiful beyond description and
becoming and modest, but they will not I
give such service as will other materials
equally fashionable.
For street, wear and visiting wear a One
broadcloth will be found much more prac-!
tlcal than Velvet. For house wear and
evening wear the lovely satins and crepes,
and even the sheer gauxy stuffs, will stand
hard ' wear better than velvet. But, con
siderations of economy being left out of the
discussion, the new velvets must be en
thusiastically acclaimed.
How thla material has changed since the
old days! The light, supple, clinging fabric
of today haa little In common with the stiff
velvets of yesteryear, and though chiffon
velvet of the less expensive qualities has
a distressing capacity for looking mussy
and shabby. It unquestionably is more
graceful than the richest of old Lyons vel
vets, while the new velvets of finest qualtty
are Ideal fabrics.
These are exquisite velvets for evening
wear, lustrous, supple stuffs in all the deli
cate colorings, and two wonderful models
have been seen, one In a luscious yellow
'twlxt malxe and aprloot, and the other In
a rose hue with a fruity bluom. Both were

Direction for Preparation of Some
Deserts and Other Good
Make a rich pie crust of one pint of
sifted flour, a pinch of salt, a little baking
powder; one teacupful of lard; mix with Ice
cold water. Line pie pnna with' crust, and
put In oven to set. Remove from oven,
pour In filling and bake. Take tho whites
of the eggs beaten stiff, adding one table
spoonful of sugar to each egg. Whon
puddings are baked, remove from oven;
spread frosting over tops and return to
oven until brown.
Bisque of Sago and Clam Boll In slightly
salted water, two ounces of sago that has
been soaked in cold water over night;
when perfectly transparent, add a pint of
boiling milk, a tablespoonful of butter, a
saltsponful of black pepper and half a
teaspoonful of salt; meanwhile pass
through the meat chopper a pint of clams,
heating to the boiling point In flieir own
liquor in a gianlte saucepan and pour
the two preparatons simultaneously Into
a heated tureen, together with a cupful
of whipped cream; thicken slightly with a
little crumbled cracker. Serve immedi
ately, accompanied by toasted biscuits.
Crisp Potato Chips An old chef, noted
for his culinary surprises. Imparted to me
tne following method of making potato
chips which I have since employed with the
) greatest success and ease. Select large,
sound potatoes, peel and stand over night
i In sufficient salted water to cover them
I well this draws all the milk out of them
drain, rinse In cold water; wipe each per
fectly dry; slice thin with a cutter, spread
on a cloth as they are cut, and by the
time the last are cut the first will be
ready to fry. When the fat Is smoking
hot add a pinch of salt, to make It brown
quickly, and drop them In a few at a"
time; when a delicate brown take out and
sprinkle over with fine salt, while still
Waffles Of the two kinds of waffles
risen and quick the latter la the? more
popular, because the batter may be pre
pared upon the shortest possible notice.
Then, too, there Is no risk of over-fermentation,
which always exists when yeast
Is used for rising purposes. For quick
waffles beat the yolks of two eggs smooth
and light; then add one pint of fresh, sweet
milk, one tablespoonful of melted butter,
one-half teaspoonful of baking powder
sifted with one pint and one rounded
tablespoonful over of sifted flour. Stir
all together briskly, then add the whites
of the eggs beaten to a stiff froth, folding
them In lightly. Bake without delay.
Upon the cook's deftness In baking de
pends much of the success In waffle-making.
In the first place, the iron must be
scrupulously clean. The slightest rough
ness will cause the batter to stick. When
hot. the Iron must be thoroughly greased
in all its Interstices. A bit of salt pork
Is the best grease for this Duraom Pni
In the batter takng care not to fill it too
full experience will soon teach one Just
how much butter Is required brown the
lower side, turn quickly arid brown the
other side. Turn out on a hot plate and
butter each waffle as soon as taken from
the Iron. Bene with maple syrup or
strained honey. Waffles should not stand
long after baking. The sooner they are
served, the crlsper they will be; although
and It Is a secret worth knowing cold but
tered waffles may be stacked one upon the
other, then reheated In the oven and be
almost as good as when freshly, baked.
Latest Popular Fad Among tt$ Smart
One Toras It to Good
The 'copper plates from which wedding
Invitations are engraved are no longer con
signed to the category of things that were.
The very nwest wrinkle for the bride Is
to have the plate saved for her and con
verted into an article that combines senti
ment and utility.
And why not? The copper plate costs
anywhere from tlO to $16, and therefore It
has been discarded considered Just about
as useful as an empty champagne bottle
or a check for a seat at last night's theatri
cal performance. Not until some ingeni
ous soul discovered that the bride was be
ing defrauded of her rights to a certain
square of copper did It ever occur to any
one to make inquiry as to Its whereabouts.
Having realized that It Is tiers for the
asking, the up-to-date bride proceeds to take
possession of it. And there Isn't anything
much prettier, by the way, than a piece of
carefully burnished copper.
Bhe doesn't put It away with the rest of
her wedding treasures, her white satin
slippers, a bit of orange blossom or a

mother or her grandmother would have

and she has a little tray on which all who
run may read If they take the trouble to
hold It before a mirror her wedding Invi
tation of her announcement, as t li- case
may be. . . .
Or she may be a bride with a certain
amount of old-fashioned sentiment In her
makeup and Ideas not so far removed from
the orange blossom satin slipper period. If
so, she has a frame made from her copper
plate, so that it is all ready for the photo
graph of herself In her Wedding gown.
The center of the plate Is cut out, leaving
a border about one Inch wide. This forms
the frame proper. The part that has been
cut out, on which Is the engraving, forms
the supporting back and is fastened to the
frame with hinges, the engraved side turned
so that It Is visible when one looks at the
reverse side of the frame.
A border of orange blossoms Is engraved
on the surface of the frame and. a pretty
Idea, one that brings out to the very best
advantage every point of this little conceit,
Is to place It directly in front of a mirror.
Then not only the picture of the bride with
Its orange blossom frame is visible, but the
engraving, on the back is reversed and
therefore Is plainly to be read.

Gossip at the national capital is saying
thst the rumored engagement between
Miss Matliilde Townsend, daughter of Mrs.

de Alba Is off and for the reason that
Mrs. Townsend's annual Income of 1200.000
Is Insufficient for restoration and mainten

Is one of the oldest and proudest In Spain.
Mrs. Townsend and her daughter met the
duke at the Spanish embassy In Psris

and his attentions to Mrs. Townsend be
came marked, so marked In fact that the
Townsends were among the few outsiders
who were honored with Invitations for the
royal wedding at Madrid last year. Soon
after Mrs. and Miss Townsend returned
to this country the duke sent his financial
agent to look over the 'prospects" and he
was accorded every courtesy by tho
wealthy widow and her daughter. But
the 260,000 a year was not satisfactory, the
duke assuring them that $500,000 annually
was the very least that would do credit to
his name ami titles and greatly Incum

A ruse bush ' growing In the yard of
Dennis Leary. 11 South Thlrty-fiflh
street, is uttractltiK much attention.
Though four years old the bush Is less
than five Inches high. In spite of its
stunted slse, It Is In vigorous health, 'it
has been a prodigy since It first appeared.
Mr. Leary planted the seed from whU'li
It grew. It bore its first bud when It
was esn than ' an Inch In height li
scarcely attulned above this size the Mis:
season, but it had a rose curb month us
regulnrly as tho moon came around.
Last year Mr. I.eary tried the plan of
pulling the buds off as soon ss they ap
peared. He thought the bush was work
ing too hard, at producing roses and was
therefore losing In growth.
The bush giew but little during this
year of .discouragement. Last summer Mr.
Leaiy let ft go Its Awn way and, as If
to make up fur the' lost dowers of the
previous year. It produced throe beautiful
buds men month.
The flowers are double pet ailed uml full.
They are of such slse that the strungth
of tho hush Is tuxed to hold lln ni. Earh
Is as big around as a halt dollar.
Another example of stunted growth sp
peard in Mr. Leary's yard last summer.
It was a talk of corn which grew up
and uttalued a belsht of eighteen inrhes.
In spite of Its Lilliputian slse the Hit Ik
was perfect and ery fertile, us it proved
when It bote six largo ears of pcyoora.
Mr. Leary is unable to understand the
examples of .stunted growth. He does
not believe there is anthlng In. the soil
around his bouse to produce these phe
nomena. He has done nothing by artificial
means to bring about the dwarfing of the
plants and he Is utterly unversed In that
art peculiar to the Japanese by which
trees, flowers and all kinds of vegetatlor.
are dwarfed.

Mrs. Ellhu Root when they returned from

"Mexico has no financial flurry." snld
Mr. Thompson. "Business there In all lines
Is going along with Its usual steadiness
and there Is no run on 'the banks. There
Is a mistaken Idea abroad In the minds of
somo people to. the effect that Mexico Is a
poor country. This Is a very bud mistake.

States and Mexico have never been better.
The volume of commerce Is Increasing
steadily. The people are well disposed to

La ad ot Peace and Plenty.
"The condition of tho Mexicans has never
been better. It is a land of peace, pros
perity, plenty. And It,, la true that this
happy condition of affairs is largely due
to. President Dias. He Is the grand old
man of Mexico. He can be called old only
In years, for In strength of body and vigor
of Intellect he Is still In his early prime,
despite the seventy-eight years he has
lived. He is a man of abstemious, steady,
regular habits. He drinks no liquor of any
kind and he does not smoke. He Is at his
office from 9 to 12 o'clock In the morning
and from 3 to 6. In the afternoon, and if
there Is any unfinished business he comes
down In the evening also. He is Idolised
by his people. Any talk of a successor to
him Is premature, to say tho least. Somo
of the United States papers have been
publishing pictures of men who might pos
sibly succeed to his place, but the president
with his health and his habits may continue
to be the strong ruler of Mexico for a
score of years yet."
Mr. Thompson takes an outlmlstle view
of the present financial flurry and considers
it a healthy movement. Ho believes It
will result In a .much better condition In
business and banking generally than the
country has seen for many years.
Mr. Thompson went to Lincoln In the
afternoon to vote. One of the principal
matters to claim his attention on the
present trip home is tho Lincoln hotel In

annex. He will return to Mexico about De
