WHAT EVERY WOMAN WANTS TO KNOW-NEW FASHIONS AND HOUSEHOLD H
jcL&. n jJ jv&?v
The Modern Girl and the Bachelor
"Why do we find eo many eligible, at
tractive young men still among the ranka
of th bachelor today? More than that,
why do they appear bo utterly contented
with their lot of single blessedness? To
wham should the blame "be attached?
'Men ore n selfish I" walled a pretty
little girt the other day. "All thoy care
about Is tor smoke and play cards and
OiaVo ft good time with each other In
tht.lr horrid clubs. When they take girls
out Uiey are seldom serious In their In
tentions, but just amusing themselves.'
The) opinion of this forlorn damsel haa
been echoed a hundred times. So many
letters aro written me by discontented
Ktrls on tho subject of man's selfishness
and his dislike of marriage that I have
begun to Investigate the question. Why
does tho modern mail hesitate to assumo
tho responsibilities of marriage?
I am convinced that the greater part of
the blame rests with the modern girl and
cannot be put upon man's Inherent sel
fishness. "Cllrls nowadays expect so much," said
very attractlvo young bachelor the
other day. "To tell you tho honest truth,
I would Hko to got married but I'm
afraid to risk It!"
"Wherein lies tho risk?" I Inquired.
"Well, It's like this," said he, slowly,
"the girls 1 meet all dress so expensive
ly and near such a variety of wonderful
clothes that I simply wouldn't dare pro
pose to one of them. Although I'm mak
ing qulto a fair salary, I couldn't possibly
afford to dress a wlfo like a young duch
ess, give her two new suits every season
and a fur coat every fall besides all those
wonderful things that girls wear nowa
days. So I Just can't ask a girl to marry
mo and then have her disappointed after
ward nnd call mo mean or stingy!"
Now, I happened to know about this
particular young man's feminine circle
At first glance tho girls thereof did ap
pear to be decked out like unto Solomon
In all his glory. But, had the young
man. only known It, their clothes were
not one-tenth so costly as they appeared
to be. Tho expenslvo-looklng fur coats
wero only "imitations," the variety of
mart suits wero only old garments re
modeled by clever fingers at home, and
the diaphanous waists, Jeweled necklaces
ana chains could have deceived nobody
but ft trusting bachelor as to their value.
All Is not gold that glltters-but how
can one tell a man that?
"I am so disappointed In the conversa
tion of tho average girl nowadays," said
another bachelor, thoughtfully. "She
talks nothing but gossip nnd clothes. The
latter bores me stiff, and the gossip Is
only entertaining for a short tlmo. Then
a man grows sick of It. So I go round
with men most of the time, and you can't
wonder at It Yes, I confess quite frankly
that girls do bore me."
This seems a sweeping statement, but
there Is lots of truth In tho accusation
Why will girls Invariably show their
foolish side to men? The brnlnless,
stupid girl Is to be excused, for she
knows no better. But It strikes me as
extraordinary that tho clover, Interest
ing girl should put her Intelligence on
the shelf, so to speak, when In tho com
pany of men, and act Hko the veriest
"Men like a girl to bo a little fool,"
declared a clover, witty girl tho other
day In self defense. "So I give them
what they Hko and play up to tho
"Down, you mean!" I said Indignantly.
"Ao you will," was the tranquil re
sponse. "But jou forget that there Is
such a thing as sex Jealousy. Men
hate a girl to bo wittier than themselves,
and you know that a clever woman Is
anathema to them. So I play tho fool
nnd am accordingly popular."
"But what Is Buch popularity worth?"
"It's worth dinners nnd dances nnd
theatres and a good time generally," said
"And beyond that7"
She hestltated, wrinkled her forehead
thoughtfully, then reddened.
"It doesn't go beyond that," she ad
And I knew It didn't. Tho "worth
while" man may amuse himself for a
short time with the foolish typo of girl,
but his Intentions nre never serious, nor
jnntrlmonlal. And the foolish girl and
the overdressed girl nre largely respon
sible for tho army of Confirmed Bache

The woman who looks out for Immacu
late neatness hi her costume wilt al
ways be consoled with the knowledge
that she looks her best. There Is a cer

Many bargnln gloves have ono finger too

Bo sure that your glove Is properly pro

Keep your hats In their respective
boxes Until you want to uso them and
return them thoro when you tako them
off. Alwnys brush them, especially if
thoy aro mndo of black velvot, or a dark
material which will show tho dust. Never

Attractive Suits for the Luncheon
AN ATTRACTIVE SUIT OF EXCLUSIVE CUT
A Pretty Coverlet
Kverybody goes In for health and
science nowadays, and nine women out
of ten who used to look upon a nap as
confined to the younger generation takes
a 15-nilnute beauty sleep every after
noon. Poor dears, it's tho only chance
aomo of them get to rest, with tho nu
merous dansant3 and whatnot which
keep women on the go. The Idea, in all
these observations is to remind you of
the usefulness of the coverlet. It Is not
a quilt, strictly speaking. It Is Just n
little coverlet to throw over milady when
she takes her "cat-nap." For it doesn't
matter how short the 40 winks may be,
a cold is easily caught If there happens
to bo a draft.
These coverlets are the last word in
luxurious appointments. They are su
premely artiste as well. Made of quilted
Bilk, satin, crepe de chine, or broende,
and bordered with lace and French roses,
there Is nothing more attractlvo or more
expensive. Tho centre is finished off with
a wreath of satin roses, or a monogram,
worked in dull gold.

THE ART OF
By a Practical GlrJ
If you have very little to spend, don't
buy anything In a very bright, notice
able color. Dark shades don't "dnte" as
a bright one does.
Besides that, one soon gets tired of a
bright color; and if ono has to go on
wearing it all tho same, one qulcklpr
grows to hate the very sight of it.
Choose washing gloves for light wear
if you can't afford a cleaner's bill.
Chamois, if carefully washed, will last a
surprisingly long time and always look
Never wear the skirt of a coat and
skirt costume Indoors. Nothing shabbies
out a skirt more quickly than to loll
about in It. '
And do buy good tailor-mades If jou
can possibly afford them. A good coat
and skirt always looks good, while a
cheap one cries aloud of Its cheapness,
and never looks really smart. A plainly
cut one can be worn quite well for sev
eral seasons, and quickly smartened up
by the addition of a pretty collar, wrist
frills and a corsage bouquet
If buying a corsage bouquet, choose
colors that will Bo with anything. A
mixed bouquet Is far more useful than
ono of one color only.
The Useful Navy Blue
Navy blue Is quite the most useful
color to choose for a coat and skirt cos
tume if one Is hard up. It is always
worn and always looks smart, t
Directly you take it off put the coat
on a hanger, and fold the skirt full
length and hang both on a chair to air.
A costume that Is well aired every time
it is worn never gets thaC fussy smell
that it Is apt to develop If It Is put di
rectly into the wardrobe.
Just occasionally it la worth while to go
to a good hairdresser and get a lesson In
how to do one's hair, It is money well
spent, for up-to-date halrdresslng does
help to make one look smart.

It keeps so much tidier than if the pins

Give your tailor-made an occasional rub
with a clean wash-leather If you want to
keep It looking nice. It removes dust and

Without warning, Ouy Wimberley dis

IT was John Erlelgh who brought the
terrible news to Monksilvet-John Er
lelgh, white-lipped and haggard-eyed.
"Ouy," he stammered out "the boy has
run away. All night we have been look
ing for him all night. We shall find him
bring him back, of course; but it is a
cruel business for you, Anne cruel,"
He gasped out the broken sentences.
His head was bowed as though he did
not dare to look Lady 'Wimberley In the
yes. And she stood there quite motion
less. The hand which had been stretched
out to greet him had been raised quickly
to her throat as the first words, had fallen
almost as quickly to her side, and she
had remained thus, while he faltered out
his broken sentences. There was no ves
tige of color in her face. It might bave
been carved out of white atone.
"We found out last night." he con
tinued. "We have been looking for him
everywhere. Of course, we shall find htm
some boyish prank but cruel cruel
Anne, my dearest."
He moved fqrwardastep to take her in
his arms, but she shrank back from him.
The movement did not seem to show aver
sion. It was as though she thought that
this was not a time for a lover's embrace,
even though It wero meant to comfort
"Guy has run awayT" she said stowly.
"No, that Is not true. Why should he run
away? He was so happy at school."
"I don't know why he has run away,
Anns, dear. Some boyish escapade, I've

like that he couldn't possibly escape; be
pldes, ho will como back of his own free
will he hasn't any money."
Sho flung herself Into a chair and hid
her faco In her hands. For nearly a min
ute Erlelgh did not speak. Then he said;
"Of course, I've frightened you, Anne;
my faco frightened you but I've been up
all night I look a ghastly wreck."
He smiled as if to reassure hor.
"Ho has not run away," she sobbed;
"It Is not true." Then she suddenly sprang
to her feet and faced hhn. " Toll me tho
truth," she said fiercely. "Tell me tho
truth let mo know the worst"
The door opened and Lord Arthur
Meriet entered tho room.
"Now, then, Anne, old girt," he said
cheerfully. "You mustn't go all to pieces

She camo quickly forward and caught
hold of his arm.
"Arthur you have news good news
for pity's sake."
"I've no news at all, old girl," he said,
putting his arms around her shoulders
and kissing her; "but we'll have him

Lady Wimberley began to think that
nothing so very terrible had happoned
after all. Even John Erlelgh was smiling
as he--parted from .her, with the promise
that he would return again at lunch time
and tell her tho latest news. It was
not until he was alone In tho car with
Lord Arthur that he seemed to collapse.
There was a hopeless look In his eyes
as he leaned back on the cushions.
"Why did you como after me?" he
"Because I was a fool to let you go
at all. Great Scott! I could see you'd
nearly given the show away. And be
sides, you're wanted down at Harptree."
"Tes, they've found a letter from Guy
In one of his school books. It's ad
dressed to you, but the Inspector opened
It. Its not a very nice letter. He saya
he s sick of the school, of you, and that
he's going to clear out"
"Sick of the school?" Erlelgh repeated.
"A forgery, of course."

"She's bound to learn the truth-very
soon. Don't you think we'd better tell
"Certainly not Now look here, Er
lelgh, you've got to pull yourself to
gether. The battle is not lost yet"
When they reached the schoolhouse
Lord Arthur found tho boy's letter and
gave It to Erlelgh. It was short and to
"My dear ChiefI'm about sick of this
rotten school, and after what you said
to me the other day I think I'd better
clear off. You won't onlss me and I shan't

up at Monksllver later on Yours,
Erlelgh smiled grimly. "Not the sort
of letter the boy would have written."
"He hasn't got himself Into trouble, I
suppose," paid Lord Arthur.
"Only over that shooting affair. Of
course, that may have thrown him off
his balance. But I'm pretty sure tho let
ter is a forgery."
"Yes pretty strongly."
"You did speak to him about the

"Well, well leae that for a moment.

want to talk to you about your sister."
"My sister. Lord Arthur?"
"Yes I think tho time has come for
you to know that your sister has got
herself mixed up In this business."
"My sister?" Erlolgh stammered, "Mrs.
Travors mixed up In this business?
What nre you talking about. Lord Ar
thur?" "I ought to have told you some time
ago; I wished to see how things worked
out I quite made up my mind I would
tell you If these scoundrels got hold of
John Erleigh's eyes flashed angrily.
"You aro talking nonsense," he said,
In a low voice. "What can my sister
have to do with thl3 horriblo business?"
"She is a friend of Dick Meriet"
"I don't bellevo It I have never heard
her mention his name."
"Very likely not," said Lord Arthur,
drily. "But Dick Meriet has been watched
for somo years, and your sister under
an assumed name Is known to have been
a friend of his. Denham recognized her
the first day she called at Monksllver.
She Is also a friend of Vertlgan's, and
she was on tho platform at St Pancras
tho day they tried to kidnap Wimberley.
I'll give you chapter and verse if you
like. You'd better elt down ond pull
yourself together. Of course, It's a bit of
a shock to you."
John Erlelgh sank baok Into one of tho
armchnlrs In his study. His face was
white and there wero beads of perspira
tion on his forehead. Many horrible
things had, happened lately, but nothing
so horrible as this If it wero true.

Erlelgh filled his plpo nnd lit it with
trembling fingers. Lord Arthur remained
standing by tho fire. For a mlnuto thore
waB silence. Then Lord Arthur began to
speak. He kept back nothing of what he
know about Mrs. Trovers. How Barker
had found her tnlklng to Vertlgan In thnt
very room, the visit to Lord Arthur's
chambers, the meeting of Dick Meriet
and Vertlgan In tho tatter's lodgings,
where Mrs. Travers had been announced
-all this was set forth in a quiet nnd
matter-of-fact way, as If the speaker
were an unprejudiced Judge summing up
a case. When Lord Arthur had finished
ho lit a cigarette and kept his eyes fixed
on Erleigh's face.
"You see," he said, after a long pause,
there Is no absolute proof any more
than there Is (proof that Vertlgan Is
mixed up In the business. But I think
one la Justified In drawing one's own con
clusions." Erlelgh made no reply. His face was
ghastly. He sat huddled up In his chair
like a man who Is utterly crushed.

Lord Arthur continued, "If I could pos

Erdleigh passed his hand across his
eyes, rose to his feet and stared dully
round the room as though he hod sud

We did have a delightful motor ride,
and on arrival at the hotel, found a very
smart crowd thoro for lunch. The Nice
Man had telephoned in advance, so a
charming little table, decorated with
freshly cut roses, was awaiting us, and
within a few minutes of our arrival
lunch was Berved.
At a table next to ua wan a merry

old friendB of our. host, ao we all got
quite friendly. Ono young married
woman among thorn Was particularly
Btyllsh. Sho wore a costume of aand
colorcd gloveskln cloth. The slevelesa
bolero fastened nt tho left Bide, under a
large braid ornament of tho same soft
shade. She woro a very pretty sand-colored
chiffon velvot waist of which ono

For the Hallroom 'Girl
Here are somo good suggestions from
the woman who lookB after hor own
clothes. It often happens, you know, that
the working girl can't afford to send her
Sunday BUlt to the tailor moro than once
a season, and in tho meantime It gets
orushed in hor hallroom closet So If you
happen to bo a hallroom dweller, you can
become quite proficient by following the
rules given below.
Always have your suit on a hanger, and
It will pay you to got a bar for tho closet
as it Just doubles tho closet space. If
your landlady will permit try to have
an electric Iron in your room and a pad
ded sleeve board. If you uso hor gas Iron
be careful not to get It too hot. A damp
cloth placed over a precious gown whllo
you aro Ironing it will be a wise preca
Uon. All dark, materials, as a rule, will be
improved if you sponge them with a weak
solution of ammonia before you Iron
them. Our grandmothers used blued wa
ter and cold tea, and many a good house
wife uaos them, too. These are both good
for removing the "shine" from serge.
A Pretty Breakfast Set
Frbxt'' I! IV
Hi. ! !'.' ! : 'i' iii iw: j n't ' ' ; 'j I
These aro the days of tho fox trot and
Its attendant frivolities, and any ono can
easily Imagine how exhausted Milady
feels after a stronuous evening, to say
nothing of a dansant In the afternoon, and
a long session at brldgo before that Tho
most useful of arrangements has been
discovered In tho shops for the tired
woman, or the lnvahd. It is the break
fast set Tho wholo thing is charming
and Is composed of a mahogany tray and
a breakfast sorvlco of the daintiest china.
To keep Milady's coffee from becoming
cold, a "cosey" Is added, and It is a most
sensible addition, too.
The coseys aro made of soft, quilted
satin, and open on the sides wide enough
to cover the fattest of coffee pots. An
other use for them is to put them over
the telephone when Milady Is asleep. Of
course, they are closed all tho way up the
sides, when they are used tor this purpose.
To Make a Cheap Stew
To make a cheap stow, take one pound
or more of leanest part of skirt, skin
and cut Into small squares. Melt somo
of the fat in saucepan, brown squares
nicely, cover with boiling water and al
low to simmer one hour. Add a carrot
and turnip (If liked), sliced, pepper and
salt After the hour, slice two or three
onions and cook another half hour. The
meat will be as tender and tempting as
steak at twice the cost
To make lemonade take the Juice of
two lemons, the rind of one lemon, one
pint of boiling water, four or five lumps
of sugar or to taste. Remove the rind of
one, lemon In thin fine strips, place them
In a Jug, add the strained juice of two
lemons, pour in the boiling water, then
add the sugar, stir well, cover, and let
It stand until cold, then strain and use.
