lt Is No Longer a Novelty But
Ruling Fabric Among the
SOMBER TONES PREDOMINATE
Health is so necessary to all the du-
ties as well as the pleasures of life
that the crime of squandering it is
equal to the folly.—Dr. Johnson.
Honey is the nectar of flowers gath-
ered by bees and ripened by them in
the hive. The Pectar is
changed in the honey sac
•so that it finally becomes
delicious honey. Differ-
ent flavors of honey are
made from different flow-
ers. Honey is a natural
sweet; foods prepared
from honey will keep
better than those prepared from sugar
Honey Tea Cake;—Take a cupful of
strained honey, a half cupful of sour
cream, two eggs, half a cupful of
shortening, two cupfuls of flour, a half
teaspoonful of soda, and a teaspoonful
of cream tartar, salt, the amount de-
pending upon the shortening used.
Bake 30 minutes in a moderate oven.
Oberlin Honey Layer Cake.—Take
tiwo-tbirds of a cupful of butter, one
cupful of honey, three eggs well beat-
en, half a cupful of milk, two cupfuls,
of flour and a teaspoonful and a half
of baking powder. Bake in layers and
fill with whipped cream mixed with
strained honey to sweeten.
Honey Jumbles.—Chop fine a fourth^
of a pound each of citron and candied
orange peel, place in a dish and just?
cover with warm strained honey, leti
stand overnight In a warm place. Beat'
two eggs, add a cupful of sugar, then!
add the fruit and honey, a little salt!
and 2% cupfuls of flour sifted withj
two teaspoonfuls of baking powder, i
knead to a smooth dough, roll out
very thin and cut in fancy shapes.
Pumpkin Pie. — To a cupful of
pumpkin add a cupful of honey, two
eggs, a pint of rich milk, a teaspoonful
of ginger, a grating of nutmeg, and a
fourth of a teaspoonful of cinnamon,
salt, mix and fill a shell. Bake slowly.
Butterscotch.—Take a cupful of but-
ter, two cupfuls of sugar, two cupfuls
of strained honey, a teaspoonful of
cinnamon; boil ten minutes; pour into
buttered pans and mark off in squares.
A creed of the Open -ttoad—To live

to us, and to lend a hand as best we
can to all others for this same end.—

The history of jersey cloth could
not be written in onfe chapter. Its in-
troduction was not taken seriously, but
its persistence has caused it to be re-
garded with importance.
It is quite useless to attempt to de-
scribe the spring fashions without
starting from jersey, incorporating it
in the middle and ending up with it.
It has ceased to be a novelty. It has
become a standard fabric. It is so
strongly, and disagreeably, like cer-
tain well-advertised brands of Ameri-
can woolen for men's underwear, that
one feels partially undressed when
wearing it. Its slender surface,
which tantalized the economical wom-
en and was the delight of the extrava-
gant woman, appears to have been
relegated to the limbo of things that
The weave that does not indicate
by its appearance that it was ever in-
tended for smart and expensive ap-
parel is the weave that is accepted.
There is a French quality that cannot
be duplicated in this country, the
dressmakers say, and the woman who
orders a suit or frock of it pays a
good fat price for it, with the satis-
' ASPARAGUS AS A TONIC.
Asparagus as'well as many other
green, tender vegetables not only adds
variety and flavoi
to various dishes
but supplies ballast
to cleanse the di-
gestive tract and
mineral salts to
stimulate the va-
rious functions and
remove waste. An
old Roman proverb
was, "Let it be done quicker than you
would boil asparagus," which discov-
ery years ago has not been improved
upon. This tender, highly prized veg-
etable should be cooked quickly to
hold all its fine flavor and lose as lit-
tle of its salts as possible. The best
method to have the whole stalk well
cooked at once is to put the bunches
well tied into a deep pan, an old-fash-
iOned tin coffee pot is an ideal dish, as
the asparagus then will stand upright, i
The best sauce for asparagus is per- |
haps plain melted butter. Dipping the !
stalks into the butter and eaten as
one does celery. The following sauce
is rather difficult to make but is the |
best of all sauces for asparagus.
Asparagus served in a rich white
sauce served on toast is a dish most
common. Asparagus cut in small
pieces and cooked in milk is another
good way to save every bit of the fla-
vor. Season with salt, pepper and
butter and If liked, a small amount of
flour may be added for thickening.
Asparagus cooked and added to an
omelet is another good dish. Simply
fold in a few tablespoonfuls of aspara-
gus as the omelet goes into the pan.
Poached eggs served with a white
sauce and asparagus is another good
dish. Serve the sauce on buttered
toast with a poached egg on each
weave which has an unfinished, inele-
One has a feeling that the exigen-
cies of war have made women get
hold of all the men's undershirts they
could find, dip them in the dye pot, put
a belt around them and use them with
a plaited skirt.
The one feeling of discouragement
that the American importers have had
,about the abundance of jersey cloth
clothes was caused by the sad tones
which the buyers have chosen. An al-
most unlimited range of gray and
Not one of these colors is especial-
ly attractive on the American wom-
an. It takes a peculiarly toned bru-
nette to wear string, mastic, cafe au
lait, beige and the biscuit tones, and
It takes a peculiarly toned blonde to
wear gray in its several light shades
that have neither blue nor mauve in
However, the French designers have
got around this by using collars,
belts, cuffs and facings of black, dark
blue and white on these gray and
beige jersey costumes.
It may be due to some inability to
dye this new type of jersey that the
sad colors are chosen, or it may be
that the manufacturers of materials
in France prefer to use the gray and
beige in these everyday suits and keep
the gorgeous colors for evening and
Have Long Tunic Coats.
The majority o:f the jersey suits, and
they may be called frocks as well,
have long, tunic coats that reach to
the knees and must be slipped on
over the head through the opening at
the neck. These coats are as shape-
less as the costumery of the tenth
century, and they depend entirely upon
the girdle for a silhouette of any grace
One of the best of the jersey frocks,
which was instantly snapped up by
the American woman, is a combination
of black and cafe au lait. The top of
the skirt is of the latter color and is
slightly held in at the waistline so
that it will not stretch in an ungainly
manner across the hips and spine. It
is cut off across the hips in a sharp
line that turns and outlines a panel in
the back. The lower half of the skirt
is of black jersey, joined to the top
in such a manner that it gives a slight
barrel effect and then curves in to the
ankles and falls in an irregular line
at the hem, which is the prevailing
note of the really smart frock. The
slim bodice clings to the figure like the

and the curve at the knees is accen-
tuated by machine stitchery in

faction that it will wear forever—if
that is a satisfaction in these days of
whirligig fashions and cyclonic com-
This is not the time or place to In-
dulge in a summary of the triumphal
procession of jersey from an oui-
lander to a conqueror. Women/ have
used the word as well as the weave
indifferently, and they speak of it
slightly as a thing of the beach, the
country lane and the hard benches
about the field of sport.
Even the high price of the slender
fabric, which Chanel took it into her
head to embroider with gold and sil-
ver, did not make women stop to con-
sider that such a riotous extravagance
had a purpose behind It.
Jersey coats and skirts were
trimmed with fur, worn during the
summer months and hung in the closet
at other times. They were a bit more
of a caprice than a colored sweater, so
women thought, but the manufactur-
ers' thought ran in another vein. They
saw in jersey cloth a sturdy, reliable
fabric that could be standardized and
kept continually on the iparket like
Amazing Success of Jersey Cloth.
At the moment, it looks as though
the manufacturers have thought bet-
ter than the public. Jersey not only
rivals serge in file spring clothes, but
runs ahead of it. Even the importers
in this country were surprised when
the packers opened the enormous
boxes which came over on the French,
steamers from Bordeaux and lifted
gown after gown, suit after suit and
coat after coat of jersey. There was
no silk Jersey there; all the apparel
was made of this new and prevailing
This gown is made of blue serge
trimmed with black satin. The sleeves
are barreled and built of the two ma-
terials joined by soutaching. The turn-
over collar is faced with natural shan-
first jerseys which Lily Langtry made
famous, but never do they show such
a silhouette as she presented to the
world, for the days of tiny waists,
curved hips and slender shoulders have
To keep the tone of the cafe au lait
away from the face, there is a wide,
rolling, horse collar of black, and the
long, tight sleeves, which are buttoned
from elbow to wrist, flare so far over
the hands that they have to be rolled
back carelessly to show a black facing.
