War't Effect on Woman't Attire.
Tlfe clothes of the times" are quite
as fascinating to female humanity as
ever before. Never was there such
a variety of novelties in women s
wearing apparel as is seen today. Not

Now that spring is here mot of
us are about ready to take down the
lace curtains and pack away our furs
in moth balls. All the things which
clutter up a house in the winter are
going to be brushed and laid away
so that summer's heat will find our
places as open and airy as possible.
I wish we could all settle down to
clearing our minds of the "junk"
which has accumulated there and that
we might leave them as neatly swept
and garnished and open to air and
"unshine as our houses-are soon to
The averaVe mind issomething
like a badly regulated novelty shop
which has grown down at the heels
tfirough dust and dirt and years of
mismanagement, It is full of things
which its owner doesn't want and
wouldn't know how to get if he did.
If I could attend to the spring
housecleaning of the average mind,
the very first 'things I should take
down would be the thick and dusty
lace curtains of tradition. Tradition
is all very well if you take a small
piece of it and look at it with an
amused knowledge that it is a fairy
tale woven around yesterday.
But if vou let it net between you
and the fact that the world is ad
vancing and progressing and step
ping up on yesterday to reach to
day, it simply shuts off from your
own vision all the sunshine and fresh
air of new thought.
After I had taken down the blind
ing curtains of tradition I should
at once put away in camphor all
the draperies of sorrow. Sorrow
has been called "the mere rust of
the soul;" but I think that it is far
more like the, stifling plush drapery
and portieres with w hich people make
their houses musty and airless, and
dusty and dead. Activity and thought
will cleanse and brighten your mental
processes as soon as you get your
mind out of the heavy swathjngs of

yon are, you have put your House

you have to keep it open. J he min

Charm of Black and White
The charm of black and white is
carefully illustrated in this little frock,
which stands half way between tepa
rate waist and skirt and the one-piece
"little dress" of the winter. The
blouse is of white taffeta, boldly
collared in black. The btack
twists into a broad surplice,
which edges the belt and asserts itself
again as pipings on the cuffs and the
facing for the sash. The black taf
feta skirt is an emphasized peg top,
with a tendency to climb up over the
skirt in wide cartridge plcirS. The
hat is an enormous cloche of leghorn,
which widens at the sides and has a
deep binding and flaring loop of
velvet. . -

TODAY'S BEAUTY. HINT
It is not necessary to shampoo
your hair so frequently if it h en
tirely and properly cleansed each time
by the use of a really good shampoo.
The easiest to use and quickest dry
ing shampoo that we can recommend
to our readers is one that brings out
all the natural beauty of the hair and
may be enjoyed at very little expense,
by dissolving a teasponful of can
throx, which can be obtained from any
druggist, in a cup of hot water. This
makes a full cup of shampoo liquid,
enough so it is easy to apply it to all
the hair instead of just the top of the
head. This when rubbed into the scalp
,and onto every strand of hair, chemi
cally dissolve all impurities. It is
very soothing land cooling in its ac
tion, as well as beneficial to both scalp
and hair. After rinsing out the lather
so created, you will find the scalp is
fresh, clean jand free from dandruff,
while the hair dried quickly and even-
