Ellen Adair Discusses the Odd Transformations for
Which the Genllc Passion Is Responsible
"All the world loves n lover," goes
the saying. Yes, thcorctlcnilj. and In
the abstract! Viewed In the concrete,
and at close range, a pair of lovers are
most trlng! One never knows just
how to take them, nor how, upon a
given occasion, they will actt They
Becm beyond the pale of ordinary stand
nrds, loo. One c.innot .count upon their
movements, for In a wvoild of unex

erratic. Irresponsible of beings!
Viewed with a calm, Impartial eye, the
ups and downs of being In love seem
very strange' I.ovc Is tesponslblc for
such strange hallucinations, too. Among
the roses seem to mingle pretty freely

Is true, love has its tiansform.itlons
not for the better, alwas, either!
Personally, I think that a pair of
lovers In a house ate dreadfully trying.
It is so awkward, too, because one never
knows Just where and how one will

fury In their hearts. The hardest thin
on earth to get away from Is a pair of
loers' No matter how one yearns to
leave them to the solitude they want,
they seem to turn up In the oddest, most
unexpected places. Not only do they
possess mis irniauiiK. .ihck-hi-iuu-uu
characteristic, but when they do spring
up like that, they blame the unfortunate
intruder as if the meeting nail Been
planned Just for their annoyance. Upon
the contrary!
Y'cs, they are curious things, a race
apart, these lovers! But who among us
docs not know them and their little
ways? When they ate In a room, a
certain electricity scorns In the air.
Perchance the two have quarreled!
Upon the brow of Udwin Is a fearsome

Around the Market
Food, viewed from a digestible point
of view, shows some cry interesting sur
prises. Fish, for Instance, is the most diges
tible of animal foods. Then come game
and poultry; then beef, mutton, pork and
veal, in the order named.
Koasting renders all meats more diges
tible than either boiling or frying. White
fowl is to be preferred to game, and fresh
fish to salted fish in this respect.
All milky products are more digestible
than any of the articles mentioned except
the fish, and boiled milk Is better than
Cream Is belter than milk or cheese.
Eggs are good, when lightly cooked.
Vegetables should be steamed. A boiled
potato Is lacking in nutritive qualities, a I
potato steamed In Its skin is dellcluus and
rich in nutrition. Do not forget, how
ever, that this requires twice tho usual
Fresh, green vegetables may bo ranked
with poultry for case of digestion, and

S or cents a gallon fill a one or two
gallon crock half full of apple parings
and full of water. Let this stand 10 or
II days until the contents are sour. Drain
off the liquid and put into a two or three
gallon Jug. Repeat the process until the
jug is full. To each gallon of strained
liquid add one cup of brown sugar and
a piece of vinegar "mother" Place a
long-necked bottle In mouth of the Jug
ind set it where It will keep warm.
Keeping the liquid warm is Important.
The process requires two and one-half to
three montns to complete. But after the
first jug is ready for use you can always
have one or two other Jugs In the making
so that you will not be out of your own

I think a certain plan of friends of
mine was excellent There were seven
daughters in the family, five of whom
were all engaged at the same time. The
paients, the two sons and the two un
appropriated daughters decided that they
would not play a "dodging" game on
such occasions as the five fiances came to
call. So they gave up the five sitting
rooms In the house to the five pairs of
lovers once a week, and spent a blame-
' less bnbhath sitting on the staircase! Yes.
The "Collapsible Man"
There Is a certain type of man whose
number Is legion. He Is the kind
who can grow or contract to meet all re
quirements. He Is a humnn chameleon,
taking on the color of the nearest woman.
The ardent dancer may call on him at
any hour to be her partner. The liter
ary person will rind him ready at all
times. In short, he Is ready to -wait on
a woman, to laugh, to play with her,
to make love to her, of course, but never
to bo serious. Girls meet these men every
day the woods are full of them. They
are sometimes very charming, but re

Save Your Ashes
1. Ashes should be sifted every morning
when they are taken out of the grate.
There are often quite good pieces of coal
which can be burnt again.
I If you have a heavy, chalky soil In
your garden, you can Improve lt very
much by digging ashes thoroughly into it
during the winter. They will break It
up and make It lighter, so that next
spring you will be able to grow flowers
you have not been able to before.
3. If you keep fowls, give them a good
pile of ashes in the corner of their run
so that they can have dust baths when
ever they please This helps to keep them
healthy and In nice condition.
t. It is an excellent plan to put a layer
of ashes at the bottom of your dust bin.
They help tq soak up any moisture that
may get thrown in. and make the bin
easy to empty in a cleanly way.

Are people dyspeptic because they are
grouchy, or grouchy because they are dys
peptic? In the light of recent science It
would seem that most people are troubled
with Indigestion because they aro un
happy while eating. Unless we are In a
buoyant, optimistic mood at meal times,
our food Is likely 'to do us moro harm
than good.
Unhapplnsss, worry, anger or grouch
Iness are the most powerful destroyers of
a good digestion. While under their In
fluence our digestive organs should not bo
asked to work. Professor Paulow, tho
great Russian scientist, through a num
ber of experiments upon tho lower ani
mals, has conclusively proved that good
digestion waits upon appetite; that pleas
ant sounds and an agreeable environment
have a great Influence upon the flow of
the digestive Juices.
If animals are so affected, how much
more sensitive are human beings to out
side Influences of a like nature. Surely,
It behooves us to stock up with cheer
fulness and pleasant words when meal
time comes around.
In addition, our food should be nppe
ttzlngly prepared and served, for unless
our mouths water at tho sight of It, It will
not do us much good as lt should. Tho
man who comes In from business nnd
finds a meal that makes him rub his
hands In satisfaction, and who happily
exclaims: "Gee. mother, this looks good;
let's to It !" will not swell the ranks of
the dyspeptics.
It may seem like an exaggeration to say
that bouillon brought to the table In

Have you over noticed after eating nt

or six times as much food, richer and
heavier foods, at that, and feel no dis

The Shy Lover
'Twas just for a moment she stopped at
the door
In the dim twilight.
And I halted and stammered, and said

Than Juat "Good night."
Yet now I think of a host of things
That I meant to fay,
And the words come as fast as if they
had wings
When she Is away.
For I think her charming. But how can
she know
What I think aright?
And the best I can do is to stammer so,
And say "Good night."

Neckwear Conspicuous Feature in
Dress This Fall and Needs to Be
Chosen With Great Care Collar
With High, Close Back Offers
Opportunity for Variety.
Neckwear Is Included among tho acces
sories of dress ordinarily, nnd quite
rightly so, but this season lt is such n
conspicuous feature that unless It Is
chosen with due regard to tho styVc of
dress with which It is to be worn, It mny
have the appearance of a very bad misfit.
Tho collar with tho high, close hack Is
n novelty this year that offers opportu
nity for very great variety. It Is com
pleted by sharp-pointed revers or tied
by a narrow black ribbon, or, ngaln, lt
may bo purely decorated nnd exist Just
of Itself. And sometimes lt Is of white
silk or satin and sometimes of tho sheer
est orgnndlc or muslin.
Two very pretty collars arc sketched
today. For, one plaits nro used In such
a way that tho collar spreads like n fan
and ends In flaring points that come
pretty close to being revers. The plaited
collar Is very popular, and both tho close
fitting nnd the flaring collar hnvo adopt
ed this means of Boftcnlng the outline.
An edging of laco Is now a feature,
and a line Valenciennes in white or cream
Is quite its dainty ns ono of tho more
expensive laces. A hemstitched collar
with the laco whipped on makes nil at
tractive showing of handwork. In the
shops this makes a moro expensive col
lar than when the lnce Ih nttnehed by
means of the machine-made plcot.
The second collar pictured Is set In the
blnuso like n vest, and It Is not detach
able like the majority of the novelty de
signs. Tho llttlo bit of embroidery that
runs around tho outer edge .of tho collar
Is eyelet work, nnd It adds very much
to Its effectiveness.
Almost all the shops show plain collars
In sheer materials that nro Inexpensive.
It la not a bad plan to buy them nnd to
"touch them up" nt home. Something
In the way of handwork wilt transform
them completely. French embroidery or
oflet. It doesn't matter which, If the
pattern Is a good one. The addition of n
scrap of laco may make nil the differ
ence In the world nnd the result may be
not a collar that ono sees reproduced ti
thousand times hut one thnt looks like
the special creation of a French snop.
Tho separate collar Idea Is not limited
to blouses nnd f locks, nor even to suits,
where It often takes the form of collar
nnd cuffs. The heavy outercoat some
times boasts a dainty white collar and
many of tho capes follow suit.
A fine black brondcloth cape that made
Its escape fiom Paris recently, plus Its
owner, has a detachable white silk col

Advice to Girls
Remember that n good man Is worth
his weight In gold. If you have one don't
underestimate him by flirting with others.
Don't hurt his pride, nnd, abovo all, be
especially careful of his vanity. He may
overlook the first, but the second never.
Some girls deliberately belittle a man
In public. They say It Is to see how much
ho thinks of them. It Is an unfnlr way
to treat him In the first place. And you
find out sooner or later that ho thinks he
can get nlong hotter with Salllo Jones.
The Foot Beautiful
Few people pay tho proper amount of
attention to their feet. They require
fully ns much If not more attention than
the hands.
First nnd most emphatically bathe
them every day. This rule goes without
exception. Tho foot bath should consist
of hot water and a few drops of toilet
(or even household) ammonia.
Take good caro to file down the nails,
and push back tho cuticle on the toes
Just as the manicurist does. Otherwise
a serious and painful "Ingrown toenail"
may follow.
If tho feet are given to excessive per
spiration powder lightly every morning
nnd night with pulverized nlum.
Corns-hard and soft bunions and all
other feet nffcctlons should be treated
only by experts. Avoid the use of a razor
on them yourself, unless you choose to
rlBk an Infection.
Callous spots from walking, dancing,
etc.. may be removed by soaking in hot
water and rubbing with pumice-stone.
To Keep Knives From Rust
If knives are to bo put away for some
time rub the blade of each thoroughly
and carefully with olive oil. Then wrap
in paper and store In as dry a place aa
Occasionally everythree months or so
lake them out and Inspect them, looking
for any signs of rust that may have ap
peared. Rc-oll before putting them away
again. When needed, wash the oil off
and rub with bathbrlck or knife-polish.
Sponge Cake
Eight eggs, one and one-half cups flour,
one and one-half cups sugar, one table
spoon lemon Juice. Sift sugar and flour
each five times before measuring. Add
one-half the sugar to the beaten yolks
and the other half to the beaten whites.
Add lemon Juice to the yolks, fold gently
Into the beaten whites, then fold In flour,
stirring as little as possible to mix well.

Beauty May Sometimes
The ancient ndage claims that beauty
Is deceitful, and good looks but skin
deep. Yet almost every normal girt has,
at ono time or another, yearned to be
beautiful, and If she be what Is gen
erally termed "plain" has probably shed
a few tears over the fact.
It Is cold comfort to tell her that
beauty fades, for she would say, nnd
rightly, that this Is true of alt pleasant
things! Far wiser Is It to show her nil
the possibilities that certainly do lurk
behind the plainest of nppearances, nnd
nt tho same time point out a few of the
undeniable compensations that can be
Youth In Itself must always be a
beautyl Its dewy freshness, and Its
keen, unspoiled vivacity must over havo
tho strongest of appeals. Then, too, at
this age so much Is possible in the way
of softening effects and enhancing good
Tho French, who understand the art
of being beautiful better than any other
peoplo In tho world, deny that any young
girl can be ugly and they are right!
The plain girl will take tho utmost
pains to make the best of herself, nnd

Pretty Camisole
There is no doubt that the most satis
factory way of making a camisole Is first
to get a reliable pattern, then chooso
nainsook or cambric of first-rate quality
and work embroidery on It, outlining lt
with button-holo stitch work in scallop
nnd working slots for the ribbon. After
that ns much embroidery mny be added
as fancy dictates, but the result Is sure
to be a very pretty camisole that will
stand any amount of wear, and always
havo a distinction about it never to be
found on an ordinary laco trimmed gar
ment. What He Sees in Her
She has a phasing presence, and yet It
Is not one that Is arrogantly so, or that
makes him feel anything but welcome.
Sho never talks scandal, and has a low,
sweet voice.
Sho Is always ready to help people who
are embarrassed or who do not know
what to do In certain circumstances.
She Is always nlcelv dicssed, yet never
wears anything overdarlng or peculiar.
She made him feel that It would bo a
hard task to gain her love, but that
when he did do so, it would bo worth
Sho is nover foolishly effusive, but she
Is always polite.
Sho has a sense of fun nnd humor, but
she has the invaluable gift of knowing
when to show lt and when to restrain It.
There Is nothing more annoying that
misplaced merriment.
She Is devoted to her family, but is
large hearted enough to adopt his peo
ple nnd make them her own.
Finally, he sees in her unselfishness,
dignity, consideration nnd a loving heart,
and that Is why ho wants her for his own.
