Sympathy He Solicits

WTTTRlf E something, please," request a correspondent, "about tho grafter of
Wtha femlnlno species sho who Is a combination of one part mushroom,
i' 619 part leech and end part clinging vine. She springs up when you least expect
ker, fastens herself on tho unsuspecting male, and When she has got all that
ho has to give leaves him high and dry with empty pockets and bitter soul."
To drop Into the vernacular, thin Is "some" indictment. To contlnuo In
the vfirrioculaf, my Correspondent patently has been "stung." Somo flossto
Hltlo beauty doubtless "lamped" him with her baby blues: IiIh masculine egotism
couldn't stand tho strain and he probably "went tho limit," spent his entire
"wad" on her and expects her now to pay up by marrying him and cooking
hla meals' and darning hla socks forever after.
IT I Bcem to sympathize with tho grafter It Is only becauso of tho supreme
contempt that I feel for tho breed sho victimizes. Ho Is truly of that class ot
Which there Is "ono born every minute." Any man who will deliberately allow
a girl to "work" him, na tho saying goes, deserves to l niched to tho last penny.
Not so Trcry long ago a big, husky man camo to me with tears In his eyes
or very near them, at any rate and quavers In his voice, and recounted to mo
tho sad story of how a girl In an unwlly moment had led him Into a Jewelry
store under tho pretext that Bho wanted to have a pin reset.
,0ncc In tho shop, thcro -wore many things sho saw there worthy of her
admiration; Indeed, thcro was a wrist watch sho simply couldn't tear herself
trottu Tho clerk" was but too glad to bIiow it to her. When sho got It on
her arm, It seems, the fascinations of tho baublo woro doubled. With lachrymose
Intonations she exclaimed:
"Oh, If I could only afford ltl If only some ono loved mo enough to buy
It for mo I"
To uso tho man's own words, he was "cornered tight." He wns on the
road to lovlhg her enough to buy her anything, but he hadn't arrived quite.
Bho precipitated a stago In his nffcctlons got tho watch, but lost his respect
for her.
"I couldn't afford to buy hr that watch, and am still eating pennuts for
lunch aa a result of tho expenditure. Hut It was tho fact that Bho had played
mo for an easy mark, .plus a feeling I had that a nice gtrl wouldn't have
accepted n watch from a man to whom sho was not engaged, much less havo
put him In a situation whero ho had to buy It for her, that settled her for me.
When 1 want to buy a girl anything I like to feel that it's because I really
want to do It, not because I'vo been mado to,"
Pity him? Not I. The person whom I really pity Is tho grafting girl. I
pity her because sho hasn't sense enough to realize that sho is playing n
losing gamo.
Wo wero standing nt tho corner of l?tli and Spruce streets tho other day
or, to be exact, I should jay the other midnight waiting Impatiently for tho
car that seemingly wouldn't come.
Contrary to the popular belief that tho wind dies down nt night and should
bo qulto moribund at midnight, there was a stlfT gnlc blowing. Two little old
ladies approached us. If they appeared to sway unduly, wo put it down to
tho, March lions doing their best to bowl them over.
Tho gray heads of the figures coming up to us were swathed In scarfs,
or (maybe shawls, and I was Just remarking to my companion that the shawl
on the head of an old lady Is tho sign of dissipation for her tho sign that
Instead of toasting her toes by the fire and retiring at tho customary 0:30, Bho
has taken tho night off nnd gone on n party.
It was only when they got qulto up to us that I know how truly, how
literally, I had spoken. Like swaying saplings they oscillated in the breeze.
They wero drunk, sillily and undlgnlflcdly drunk.
"We've been to my 'shlstcr-ln-laws,'" tho smaller of the two Informed
mo Just as if cho had known mo all her lifetime. "Wo'vo had 'sush' a good
time talking over old times." Tho other nodded her head foolishly In con
currence, and they babb'lcd away to their hearts' content.
garbed in hombro clothes, as befits old ladles, they looked so gentle, so
refined, that I am sure they belonged to that Great Respectable Class which Is
tho backbone of the nation.
How did they rvcr lot themselves go far enough to get Intoxicated? And
what will their feelings bo when they nro themselves again? Will they blush
With ehainc, or will they nudgp each other gleefully, overjoyed at the dis
covery that they arc not too old or gray to "havo the dlvvll of a time" In tho
rocking-chair period ot life? I wonder. M'LISS
TUnnn Is always something now and pretty for children to bo seen In the stores,
nnd ninny mothers who haven't tho tlmo to look them up personally will np
nreclnte this suit of rompers for the. little boy or girl. When children nro so
little It really doesn't matter whether It Is a boy or a girl who wears tho rompers.
The style pictured In today's illustration Is fashioned of solsette, in white, with
colored collar and cuffs of the same matorinl.
Smocking Is Introduced on the front nnd at tho cuffs, dono In pink or bluo to

Dear M'Uss I don't nsreo with you on
the subject of the woman boarder as a

nro unavoidable. But I'd rather havo n
wi-ninn boarder than a college student

SOMETIMES, writes a pchoolma'am ot
parts, I think you nro a .little too
hard, on the grandmothers and old
fashioned people. You aro certainly an
Iconoclast and your ridicule of these old
Ideas borders on tho discourteous. A
tjod doctor was railed t attend a case
of grip and the first thing he did was to
order n mustard paste applied. And an
old grandmother applied It. with tho hap

All o( Which is good and true.
Haven't we openly apologized to grand

Haven't we admitted that her good old
flaxseed meal poultice beats any canned

flaxseed meal poultices retains the heat

lot cleaner than the modern medicated

they are. Few people attain com

THC next thing to discuss about a tea
or carden party Is tho way In which
tho debutante should dross and who
should compose the receiving party. In
tho case of the debutante's having an
older sister. It Is always good form for
her to stand beside her younger Bister to
receive tho guests. The hostess stands
llrst In tho line, then tho debutante, next
tho older sister. If thcro aro several
sisters. It la only necessary for ono to bo
In the receiving line, tho others should
mlnglo with tho guestB, Just as tho other
persons who arc asked to receive with tho
dob aro expected to do. It Is customary
for the older women who are Invited by
1 the hostess to receive, to take turns dur
ing tho afternoon In presiding over tho
tea table. The younger friends of the
debutante who are asked to ruce'vo
should see that the various guests have
what they dcslro In the way of ref bail
ments. In recent years It has become
customary to wear regulation evening
1 rocks at afternoon teas, and the debu
tante usimlly wears a g iwn of white silk,
mi tin or some filmy material.
Why Is Lady Friend Wrong?
Dear Deborah Hush Please answer the
question why Is It wrong to say lady
friend or girl friend? I am. .". J. A.
It Is not wrong to say "lady friend or
girl friend": It Is simply bad form nnd
very bad taste. This sort of expression
puts a person down as vulgar, without
any further parley.
When Comes the Hors d'Ocuvre?
tlcnr Deborah Uush Can you tell me1
when the dish which I have heard spoken
of aa hors d'ocuvro is Served at a dinner?
And could you name some simple ones?
I will be greatly obliged. A. Q. P.
The hors d'oeuvre Is served first of all
at a dinner or luncheon. It Is already on
tho plate as the guests sit down. The hors
d'oeuvre Is Intended aB a sort of appe
tizer for the rest of the meal. There are
very many kinds of these appetizers; a del
icate piece of toast Is usually the founda
tion This Is cut In a circle, diamond or
little squares One delicious recipe la to
pound chicken livers and olives into a
paste and spread It over the toast; or
another 1b made with a hard boiled egg
grated and spread on the toast and in
the centre Is placed an anchovy or sar
dine. These are often garnished with a
slice or so of stuffed olive. Either of
these are very easy to prepare. A small
fork Is used for the hors d'oeuvre ; In fact,
one Is made now at the Jewelers which
Is much on the order of a salad fork with
a wide Bide prong to cut into the toast.
Correct Use of Napkin
Dear Deborah Bush Will you tell mo
the proper way to use a napkin? I notice
that some people open theirs out wide on
their laps, others fold them in half, and
on one or two occasions I have seen an
end tucked Into the blouse. A word from
you would be appreciated, GENEVA.
The napkin should .be unfolded and
placed across the lap bo that about a third
ot It la folded under. It Is not good form '
to spread it out full size over the knees. ,
and to tuck it into one's blouse is quite an
impossible thing to do.
Ab Man to Man
Dear Deborah Hush Is It considered
good form for a man to rise upon being
presented to another man? I know a
man who does It Invarlnbly, yet I have
heard persons crltlctso him for being too
polite. B. V. P.
Of course thcro Is such a thing as be
ing not too polite exactly, but too formal
and conventional. However, In answer to
your direct question. It Is considered good
form for a man to rise and to shako hands
with another man to whom ho Is Intro'
Please Explain "Temperate"
Dear Deborah Hush I see In your an
swci to a question, In Monday's Evenino
l.y.vauu. about a girl allowing a man to
kiss her You say this should bo only
when they are engaged, nnd even then
temperately. Will you tell me what you
mean by "temperate"; that Is, how often
should ono allow ono's fiance to kiss one
during an evening? ANXIOUS.
It would bo impossible to give you any
ruli on this matter. A woman's own
good breeding Is the safeguard for such
Should Girls Offer Scats to Older.
Dear Deborah Rush I nm a young girl
of 19 nnd I often notice, when riding In
tho car that a girl about my ngo will get
up and offer her Beat to an old lady, when
een the men In tho car do not do bo.
Is not this n little forced and over pollto?
On tho contrary, the young girls you
h.ixo observed have shown their courtesy
and good breeding in offering their seats
to un older lady. It Is astonishing, but un
fortunately true, that men do remain
seated when an older lady Is obliged to
stand anil hang on to n strap. You would
do well to copy the young persons you
have observed. DEBORAH PUSH.
Muffins and Dates
Cornincal muffins with dates is a new
way to fix up un old dish Use n cupful
of whlto cornmeal, 1 teaspoonful of salt,
4 tcaspoonfuls of baking powder, 2 table
Bpoonfuls of brown sugar, an egg, 2 table
spoonfuls of butter, n cupful of wheat
flour, 'i cupful of chopped dates, IV- cuns
of milk.
Cook together with meal, sugar, salt,
butter and milk In a doublo holler foi 10
minutes. When cool, add the egg, dates
and the flour. Into which the h.iktng
powder has been sifted. Beat the batter
thoroughly until light nnd bake In muf
fin tins In a hot oven.
"Try Out" Cake
A simple cake for tho beginner Is mado
by using two-thlrds of a cupful of sugar,
piece of butter the size of an egg, creamed
together. Add an egg nnd a pinch of
bait beating until light.
Then add two-thirds of a cup of sweet
milk, and one and two-thirds cupsful of
flour, into which has been sifted I heap
ing teaspoonful of baking powder. Bake
In 2 round pans, or In a square loaf pan
In a quick oven. Care should be taken
not to have the oven too quick or the
cake will not be light.
