THE WOMAN WHO

It'omott'e Past, tht Evening Ledger.
"They've" found a name for It at last;
It's the Henry II collar. You've been look
ing at It since the earliest spring openings;
It made Its Initial bow on the Parisian
gowns brought over for this occasion. It
was called the French collar and various
other names, but you usually know what
they mean because It Is so different from
other kinds of collars.
I'll attempt to descrlbo the collar I mean,
although it's as hard to picture In words as
it Is to avoid It on the smart dresses. It
goes straight across the neck in a horizontal
line, aa if the head was just stuck through
an opening in the top of the dress. It may
be finished off with a ruche or a white
batiste collar with four points, or it may
have a band of Chinese embroidery across
it But they call It the Henry II collar.
A neck fixing of this type Is more or less
exacting. It calls for sloping shoulders and
a not too long throat. No other type can
carry It with the proper amount of style
distinction that this creation merits. It is
smart but trying!
Dear Madam Do you think I can mak a

and what kind of trlmmlnr should I put on It)
My material Is yellow. 1 have dark hair and
dark ee and am tall and slender. Do you
think this color will become met a. Y, R.
I suppose you mean to make the coat at
home. It Is easy to do. The work must be
carefully finished inside, because you have
no lining on a coat of this sort Choose
a loose, raglan-shouldered model, with shir
ring at the back, and a loose sash for a
belt Trim with white or dark-brown mara
bou. Have a wide sailor collar, edged with
a band of the fur across the back.
Dear Madam Can tou tell me Is there Is any
pedal way to wash smocklnct I have a coupl

th front and back. Every time they are laun
dered they look aa If all the work Is preased
down Bat; It doea not look like smocklnr at all.
Any help you can xlv me In this metier will
bo appreciated. JOSIE.
The reason your smocking looks flat is
probably because It was ironed on the right
side of the material. This Is wrong. Smock
ing should be Ironed on the wrong side of
the goods. If you notice, the smocking
forms pleats on the wrong side. These
should be Ironed Oat putting each pleat
down separately, one overlapping the other.
The right side will take care of Itself.

MRS. H. K. F,
Once the stockings have turned, you can
not change the color unless you dye them.
Use crepe paper or red-Ink solution, and be
sure to test It by dropping In a bit of stock
ing before you use it Flesh pink may be
worn with white buck shoes.
To keep your stockings white, wash them
In lukewarm water with good white soap
and hang In the shade to dry. Do not iron.
Here's the proper way to make It:
Cream a pound of fresh butter and have
a bowl of finely chopped, clean cress on
band to mix with the butter. Season with
salt paprika and lemon juice. Spread
over white or entire wheat bread, add cress
leaves and serve.
When It is necessary to iron a rough-dry
garment at once, dampen It roll tightly and
wrap In a cloth, then In paper, and put It
In the oven while the Irons are heating.
Evaporation will cause It to be thoroughly

PrAehalf-hour later a messenger hoy found
Sailor Byrne the center of d'r'n
throng In Professor Cassldy's tnlrd;"fn0'
gjwnaslum. With worshiping eyes taking
in his new hero from head to foot the youth
handed Byrne a note.
He stood staring at the heavyweight un
til he had perused It
"Any answer?" he asked.
Wo answer. k!d." replied Byrne, "that I
can't take myself." and he tossed a dollar
to the awestruck boy.
An hour later Billy Byrne was ascending
the broad, white steps that lead to the en
trance of Anthony Harding's New York
house. The sen-ant who nnswered his ring
eyed him suspiciously, for Billy Byrne w-as
still dressed llko a teamster on holiday. He
had no card.
The servant left hrm standing In tho hall
way and started to ascend the great stair
case : but half-way up he met Miss Harding
".Vever mind. Smith," she said. "I am
expecting Mr. Byrne"; and then, seeing that
the fellow had not seated her visitor, she
added: "He Is a very dear friend."
Smith faded quickly from the scene.
"Billy!" cried the girl, rushing toward
him with outstretched hands. "Oh, Billy,
we thought that you were dead I How long
have you been here? Why haven't you been
to see me?"
"I've been back for several months," ho
aaldt "but after after we found that Mr.
Mallory waa alive I knew that things would
be different so I kept away."
"Billy! How could you?"
"You don't mean," he faltered, "that
that everything Is tho came now as It was
on the Island Barbara?"
She looked up at him wistfully.
A great, mnd hope had been surging
through his being since he had read of
the broken engagement nnd received the
girl's note. And now, In her eyes, In her
whole attitude, he could read, as unmis
takably as though her lips had formed tho
words that he had not hoped In vain.
But some strange Influence hnd seemed
suddenly to come to work upon him. Even
In the brief moment of his entrance Into
the magnificence of Anthony Harding's
home, ho had felt a strange llttlo stricture
of the throat a choking, half-suffocating
The attitude of the servant, the splendor
of tho furnishings, the stateltness of the

Billy Byrne knew It now.
His heart went cold. The bottom seemed
suddenly to have dropped out of his life.
Bravely he had battled to forget this
wonderful creature, or, rather his hopeless
love for her her he could never forget.
But the note from her and the sight of her
had but served to rekindle tho old fir a
within his breast
He thought quickly. His own life or
hnpplness did not count Xothlng counted
now but Barbara. He had seen the love
light in her eyes. He thanked God that he
had realized what it would have meant
before he let her see that he had seen it.
"I've been back several months." he said
presently; In answer to her question; "but
I got sense enough to stay where I belong.
Gee ! Wouldn't I look great comln' up here
buttln' In wit' youse bunch of hlghlifes?"
