Plans for an
Dinner Party
As Lincoln's birthday and Washington'
birthday r both officially proclaimed
national holidays, tha young matron may
romblne tha two and send out Invita
tions "to "a historic dinner party" or "a
presidential dinner party" for soma even
lng between February it and S2.
If any special decorating is dona the
color, schema should be red. whlta and
bin. In planning for tha entertainment
lha spirit of the colonial period and of
the old south should ba emphasised. If
tha hostesa wishes to make her dinner
sn elsborate affair, she may ask her
guests to dress In tha costume of either
Washington's or Lincoln's time.
If tha guests are asked to assemble
at . tha dinner should not be served
until an hour later. As a prelude to it.
announce a "Who's-Who In the White
House" contest. Buy a collection of pic
tures of the presidents, then, having re
moved the names, place the portraits In
Various rooms of the house. Provide each
guest with pencil and paper, threatening
a dire penalty for those caught giving
or receiving assistance. Fix a time limit
and start them off. In all likelihood no
one will name all of the portraits cor
rectly and the results WW be a mining.
Arrange a mound of evergreen twigs
In the center of the dinner tsble with
the national f lug, on top. Place red
randies, one for each guest, around the
evergreen and let alternate red, white and
blue crepe-paper ribbons radiate from
the candles, falling over tha edge of the
tsble to tha floor. ' Place cards will not
he necessary, as dinner psrtners are to
lie chosen. This is done by asking each
man to' pick a cherry from a tree. The
tree Is a sturdy evergreen branch placed
In a flowerpot, and decorated with small,
red. tissue paper balls to represent the
fruit. When these cherries ara unrolled
the name of some woman In the party
Is found.
An appropriate menu Is:
Cram of Tomato Roup
Old Virginia Ham
Sweet Potatoes ((southern Style
Sarstoga Chips Southern Tea Biscuits
Cherry Salad
Lsdv Baltimore Cake
. Washngtnn Cream
Cake Nuts and Balsins
Any cookbook will supply all recipes
for cherry salad and Washington
rr m
Cherry Balad Take one can red cher
ries. Pour off the iulce and drain tha
cherries on a cloth. Put a large lettuce
leaf on each salad plate, and a small
mound of cherries In the center of each
leaf. ' Burround the mound with a circle
of sliced bananas and pits of pineapple,
then cover this clrclo with a thick
mayonnaise and sprinkle It with paprika.
Washington Cream Serve vanilla lea
cream In little) pyramids: In tha top of
each Insert a bit of fern or evergreen,
the stent of which has been dipped In
melted paraffin. Fasten mm candled
cherries on tha twig.
As a "postlode, to the dinner gtra an
"exhibit of ye olda time allhouettea."
Provide the guest with pencils and large
squares of paper, requesting each to
outline the profile of hl or her partner.
These drawing ara carefully cut out and
ihe paper from which they have been
cut la pinned to a black curtain. .This
produces tha affect of a b'ack silhouette
mounted on a white mat Tha picture
are next numbered, each parson being
asked to pick out his own portrait and
to submit tha number of It. together with
his name, to the hostess. Tha result will
be highly amusing, as In all likelihood,
several will select the earoa llhouette.

One girl complains because her home

Is not permitted to entertain frequently,
and a third waxea bitter because her
parents imagine that ahe can find con

The girls who live In dreary hall bed
rooms could a tale unfold for those who
fall to appreciate the Joya of home. When
they are tired from a day'a work, they
come home and toil up the stairs to a
dingy llttl cold room, where there Is no

Each artist in the dressmaking and
millinery world seems to be a law unto
himself, says Emlll de Jonoare In her
Pari letter to the February Harper's
Bexar. There Is no effort at making any
one period prevail,' and the result Is a
happy choice of almost every period that
the history of fashion haa recorded.
Bernard, who is noted for his perfect
tailored suits, declares that a the season
toae on skirts will be a little longer, but
still full and more trimmed; that aleeves
will be fuller and. whether long or snort.

states . that , the coat of tailored suits
are shorter than ever and even fuller at

The very latest news that Georgette
ha to give . is interesting, "I do not
think that the change In fashions this
spring . are very marked." she states,
"but so many charming detail are being
worked out that there is plenty of nov
elty. : ...
"A to line, in general Z believe in the
future of short skirt, . perhaps less full
and less plain. I also wu,ev- that col

role.- -. ' . ' .
Some of the best known silk and mous
sellne house assert that Georgette crepe
will be more fashionable tuan ever, and
that very heavy faille silks are advisable
for afternoon wear. Taffeta will hold
their own. and there la a new and par
ticularly heavy and handsome quality

green and Bordeaux with a touch of
oeet red, very rich and beautiful, For
evening wear the salmon pink are no
longer desirable and have been super
seded by the Louis XIV pink, which is
somewhat mauve in tone. - Lllao and
grays are popular, while pale blue Is
out of favor.
One sees In Psris many long flaring
-oats that fall ill full straight lines from
neck to ankle; these will be fashionable
for motoring in the spring. The fullness
la at present evenly distributed, but
when these coats are made of faille for
spring the fullness will be bunched on

Best Way to Do Things
Freeh meat should be wiped with a
damp cloth before being placed in the
. When brushing a velvet hat alight ly
dampen the brush first, and the dust
will come off twice as quickly.
. To remove dirt and stains from marble
apply a solution of gum Vrablc; let It
remain until it dries, then peel It off or
wash It off. , 5
. To make a new. rope clothesline as soft
and limber a an old one, boil it two
hours in water, and then thoroughly dry
It In a. warm room.
1 To reheat cold slice of bread, biscuits
or rolls, wrap each in a dampened paper
and place in even until the paper
searches, . They f will taste fresh and
: To make smelling salts, . put eight
parts of sub-carbonate of ammonia In a
coarse powder in a bottle, and pour on It
one part of oil of lavender, mix well.
To remove old paint, cover it with a
wash of three part quick stone lime
slaked In water, to which one part pearl
ash is added. Allow this coating to re
main sixteen hours, when the paint can
be easily scraped off. ' ;
Rub finger murks from doors with a
clean piece of flannel dipped in paraffin
oil. Afterward wipe with a clean cloth
wrung out in hot water to take away
the smelt. This is bettor than using
soap and water, as it does not destroy
paint.- - '
' To. clean a sewing' machine take out
the screw that holds the footplate, re
move it, and you will be surprised at
the fluff accumulated there,' Clean tha
little groove and under the plate with
a penknife. - The needle must be -taken
out before the work haa begun. Tou will
often find this is the only causa of the
machine running hard.
Any woman who owns a sterling or
German silver purse will be glad to
know that common baking soda will
clean It in a few minutes. That is what
most jewelers use. Just take plenty of
soda arid a little water and wash be
tween the hands or with a brush. Rinse
and dry and think of. the. money ..saved.
