How many hearts of our young girls
are palpitating at the thought of the
"distingue" foreigners. They are be

stopping at the Blackstone, attending
the meetings of the French society
and proving perfectly delightful lions
for the afternoon teaa. The latest
tea, in honor of one of these gentle

was used to project the pictures upon

gentlemen to remark drolly to one

MY VALENTINE I made her. Will her face fit into your heart?
Many a man's heart looks just this way on the Good St. Valentine's
Day out of it looks eyes and a smile that you with another sort
of eyes and smile looking out of yours may not think beautiful but that
fill his heart with a bubbling, throbbing wine that all but just spills over,
and are the very eyes and smile of the face that "launched a thousand
ships" to him.
Sings the Lover: "Oh, flower -face, the peak of your black hair and
the point of your little chin are of such fashion that they fit just in my
heart line on line. So do I prove that you are mine my Valentine

The holiday month of February,
with its three special days within four
weeks, sets one to thinking of deco
rations for the table. It is only too
true that table decorations have vio
lated every rule of good tastes for
we have blindly followed the dictates
of certain magazines whose cardinal
principle seems to have been "how
much can we pile on?" I hope that
day is passing, and that the party
table of the present is dominated by
the idea of simplicity. Effectiveness
of decoration is always best secured
by a tew well-chosen bits ot color.
In the choice of a centerpiece we
taboo immediately any large, high ar
rangement of flowers or greenery. A
low bowl or basket or a bud vase
containing one or two flowers, is al
ways in good taste. The new low
bowls containing flower standards in

for a small table colored candles
with shades are a doubtful addition to
an artistic centerpiece. They are apt
to crowd too close to the flowers
and detract from their beauty. At a
large table candles are helptul. They
may, however, be used at a small
table in place of a centerpiece, a
group of two or three of them held
together by smilax. I once saw an in

To carry out a color scheme there
are always nut cases, favors and place
cards. If all three devices are used,
two of the three should be unobtru
sive. For example, with attractive
favors, use small, plain-colored nut
cases and very simple place cards.
The place cards may be combined
with the rrat cases or the favors, as
seen in the downtown stores.
Some of the common mistakes in
ornateness are the use of ribbon or
paper streamers flat on the tablecloth;
the strewing ot paper decorations on
the cloth, and the use of decorated
paper tablecloths with other elaborate
decorations. It one chooses a deco
rated cloth, then srrrety other table
appointments, including china, should
be of the simplest, not to spoil its ef
fectiveness. It is sometimes said that
flowers should never be placed on the
cloth, but, personally, I have always
been pleased to find a blossom at my
plate though perhaps I should not

be made by tying a plain white card
to a small flower.

The Wonderlift Bandlet copies Nature. It does
the work of tired, relaxed abdominal muscles in
Nature's way. It is elastic, and fully adjustable.
By restoring fallen organs and ligaments to
healthful position, the Bandlet re-establishes natural
