girls he had ever met and life was
very sweet at that moment.
Speeding through the sleepy little
hamlet of Bellevue they soon left the
woods and fields behind them and

F you can achieve such an effect as
this in the name of economy, why
worry over the high cost of living?
This frock, although striking enough
for a "brand new" evening dress, was
really remodeled from a gown of
black charmeuse and net. Over a
corsage of flesh-colored chiffon is set.
hrst, a tucker of black net, outlined
with jet beads and, next, a suspender
and girdle of jet. Three long panels
of net are outlined with bands of jet
and punctuated with a jet motif.
The$ fall over a narrow skirt of
blackXharmeuse, which may be easily
fashioned from a full skirt of yester
year. So many, many women have on
hand dresses of chlrmeuse with over
skirts of net. Why not make them
over like this? "

HEN the springtime comes the
the enthusiastic housekeeper
sets her brain machinery
working and Schemes are evolved for
arranging the house for that cool-and-comfortable
appearance. But right
now, with the thermometer shooting
way down below zero, with the fur
nace going at full blast and the storm
windows iocked tightly, we want
not the cool-and-comfortable feeling,
but the warm-and-cozy home.
And it is this time of the year when
gray clouds hang low, when spirits
are dulled and the home looks bare
and gloomy. Even the grate fire looks
cheerless unless the doors and win
dows are hung with soft draperies.
. At Your Own Price.
Whether your curtains be costly or
inexpensive rests with yourself. You
can buy, in the shops this week, -curtains
and portieres in elaborate de
sign, or you can buy the materials,
hem them yourself and add greatly to
the appearance of the home. Carry
out color schemes or use a shade
which tends to brighten spirits and
sooth restless nerves.
Materials for drapt.ies will be great
ly reduced during this week, and 4here
will be offerings in soft scrim, ecru
or white, with flowered pink or blue
borders, just the thing for bedroom
hangings.. Dressing table scarfs and
sofa cushions to match make the bed
room a cheerful place.
xl This Week1.
Study your room, then look through
the shops ths week while "they
are so greatly reduced in price. You
may find remnants at . a small cost
which will fit in nicely.

with an conomic turn of mind will
make her home into a dear little cozy
place, at small expense,, if she is a

Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. William Berry
were delegates to the national con

We must pledge the endorsement of
every man who is to serve in the next
