FOR AND ABOUT WOMEN.
Kindness by secret sympathy is tied,
For noble souls in nature are allied.
Even the plainest woman looks well
with white linen near the face and
hands. How clever of men to hide
this from us for years! Every man
knows the effect on his moral of a
fresh collar and of having his hair
patted down smoothly.
Act on my advice and take to clean
collars and cuffs. They can be made
of white pique, and washed in a wash-
bowl every night. A few snaps on the
collar of your coat, and you are as
fresh and smart as the best-groomed
Your whole life depends on how you
look and how you feel.
Many an otherwise perfect toilette
has been spoiled by a wrinkled or
twisted stocking. It is very important
today, when one shows so much stock-
ing, that it is at least put on straight,
and made smooth about the ankles.
A wrinkled, untidy heel is usually
caused by the stockings being too
large. There is some sort of an idea
that stockings wear longer if they are
several sizes too long. As a matter of
fact, they don’t. They rumple under
the feet, causing irritation and nerv-
ous shuffling of the feet, which rubs
holes in them much faster than a little
stretching would do if they fitted
It's the same with too large shoes.
They are just as bad as shoes that are
too small. In fact, the harmony of
every detail depends upon having it as
nearly just right as possible.
Write a list of your holiday clothes,
and attach this to the inside of the lid
of your trunk or suitcase. It will be
a great assistance when collecting
your belongings for repacking, partic-
ularly if you do not stay more than a
night or two in each place. .
The idea of having to pack soiled
with clean clothes is repulsive. One
way out of the difficulty is to post
home soiled garments. An entire
clean supply of stockings and hand-
kerchiefs can be kept by rinsing them
regularly every evening when chang-
ing for supper or before going to bed.
A lace or net frock will travel bet-
ter in a dressmaker’s box, by post,
than in a suitcase. Pack in plenty of
tissue paper, with all accessories in
the way of shoes, stockings, flowers,
hair ornaments, gloves and furs, so
that the complete toilette is ready as
soon as the occasion for wearing it
Don’t forget a “housewife” or a
traveling work basket. Holiday wear
is generally much rougher and more
stitch-breaking than office or home
wear, and holiday makers have lots of
leisure to observe stitches that are
conspicuous by their absence.
Although silk bags have almost en-
tirely done away with leather ones,
the latter are certainly more comfort-
able to use when traveling. They have
plenty of pockets for holding tickets,
passports, money, etc., and the stiff-
ness of the leather enables one to find
these necessities quickly. Watch the
face of the ticket inspector whilst the
silk-bag lady keeps him waiting for
the ticket that has mixed itself up
with umpteen other articles at the bot-
tom of her handbag!
Amusing Races.—There were races
of all kinds, in at least one of which
everyone could participate. First
came the goose race for the married
women only. A light collar was put
about the neck of every goose, with
reins attached. A course was marked
off, and the drivers were provided with
light switches. The matron whose
goose reached the finishing post in
the lead was declared the winner.
Next came the “nursemaids’ ” race
for the little folks under 7 years of
age. They were dressed in long skirts
and aprons, and were required to run
a carriage with a doll inside to the end
of the course. The child who reached
the goal without spilling her baby was
given a small prize as the winner.
For the young people there was a
wheelbarrow race, which occasioned 2
great deal of laughter. Each young
man drove at full speed to a goal at a
distance a wheelbarrow in which was
seated a girl.
Then came the usual potato and
sack races, finishing the day with sup-
per under the trees.
A tub-silk petticoat is an indispen-
sable garment in the smart woman’s
wardrobe; therefore, it is welcome
news that such a skirt in an enduring
quality can be purchased for only
$2.95. The skirt has shadow-proof
panels back and front the bottom
hem is neatly hemstitched and the
waistband is fitted with elastic. The
skirt comes in all desired lengths. It
is very practical for wearing under
any kind of outer garments. So far

Ears will be popular for women '
again this winter, according to dele-
gates to the convention of the Nation-
al Hairdressers’ Association. Bobbed
hair has come to stay, they also in-
sisted, but indicated that fewer wom- ;
en would wear shorn locks as the,
years go by. ; |
A mop of cheesecloth strips 1} inch-
es wide and 8 inches long, made fast
to a light handle, is just the thing to
keep a papered wall clean. :
Printers make a paste of flour and
water, spread this on marble, and,
after allowing it to dry, simply brush
it off with the result that the marble
is perfectly clean.
A cheese omelet, toast and jam |
make a good Sunday supper.
Old hair brushes which have be-
come soft may be made quite firm and
stiff again by dipping the bristles in-
to strong alum water. Dissolve the
alum in hot water, but do not use it
till it is cold. |
It is a good plan to place only slen-
der furniture in small rooms and to
confine the heavier and more comfort-
able pieces to the larger ones.
NEW RECORD FOR STATE ROAD
Two hundred and ten highway con-
struction projects now under way in
Pennsylvania are employing 12,000
men, according to estimates announc-
ed recently by the State Highway De-
partment. The men are actually en-
gaged on the road work while thous-
ands of others are kept in sand banks,
quarries, cement mills and asphaltic
plants preparing material for the road
During the 1921 construction season |
more than 316 miles of durable high-
way were constructed up until July
28, while contracts awarded during
the year totalled 308 miles. The open-
ing of bids for an additional sixty
miles recently, brought 222 bids, the
greatest record ever made in the his-
tory of road building in the country.
The world’s construction record for
one week was reached by contractors
on roads in Pennsyvania during the
week ending July 28, when more than
thirty-five miles of highway was put
down. Statisticians of the Highway
Department have figured that it would
take a train twenty-nine miles long to
transport the materials which entered
into the road construction during the
Some of the materials used in the
record week’s construction were 133,-
385 barrels of cement, 39,515 cubic
yards of sand, 59,290 cubic yards of
stone, 961 tons of reinforcing steel and
a large amount of bituminous surfac-
ing and vitrified block. It would have
required ninety-six trains of forty cars
each to have transported all of the ma-
terial and the concrete used would
have made a solid cube 127 feet
The 533,540 bags of cement were
sufficient to fill 670 box cars, while the
sand, filled 1,333 cars and the stone
1,852 cars. This is a total of 3,855
cars without taking care of the steel
and the other materials. Most of the
construction was of roads
the ce ter and six inches at the sides.

Fire Observation Towers to be Erect-
ed by State.
Major R. Y. Stuart, deputy commis-
sioner of forestry, has announced that
twenty-five sites have been definitely
fixed for forest fire observation tow-
ers that will be erected by the Depart-
ment of Forestry this summer. Or-
ders for fifty towers have been placed

ing locations will be selected by Geo.
H. Wirt, chief forest fire warden,
within the next few weeks.
Major Stuart indicated the follow-
ing locations of the first eighteen tow-
ers that will be put up: Blue Knob,
Bedford county; Lower Yoder, Vinton-

In Earlier Days
In former times, when the town butcher or
farmer himself dressed and cured the meat for
the community, he could not always tell how
it would turn out.
His methods were crude; partly traditional,
. partly guesswork. His tests were few and
Meat packing of today, as carried on by
Swift & Company, has changed all that. It is
scientific. Nothing is left to chance; nothing
taken for granted.
The most painstaking care and attention
are given to every step. Processes are worked
out on a large scale with minute ‘exactness.
Methods are continually revised and improved.
Cleanliness is insisted upon. Drastic, incessant
inspections are the order of the day.
+ Swift products are uniform, graded accord-
ing to quality.
Take bacon, for instance.
Swift & Company set out years
“ago to make a delicious, savory bacon
which should be uniformly excellent.
