MATCH HAT TO THE CALICO FROCK;
FASHION AS SEEN ON SEA SANDS
The trail lied petered out, crawled
intQ the higL, dry grass and last
itself. Close at hand she heard *
strange, menacing rattle.
Nausea seized Betty. A step in any
direction and she might put her foot
in its strapped shoe and silk stock-
ing down upon that horrible rattling
danger. Death lurked. .Tust the
other day Mrs. Lowden had told her
about a man—she swayed as she stood.
Covering her face with her hands she
sobbed in terror.
Thump-thump! An arm went round
her, courteously, kindly. She wilted
on a hard yet wonderfully comfortable
shoulder. A big hand scented with
horse leather patted her arm.
“There, there! You're all right!
[’in here!” murmured a deep voice.
“Do you hear it—that thing?’’gasped
Betty. She made a gesture.
“That’s nothing. I'm here.’’.
He put his hat on her aching head.
He lifted her upon his pony. He took
her home. For the rest of the day
Jenny Lowden doctored and scolded
“Next time you want to take a walk
you better ride,’’ snapped Mrs. Low-
den. “I thought you knew better than
that! Bareheaded, too! Gosh, you
tenderfeet make me tired.”
A week passed, No sight or sound
of Reid. He had ceased to hang
round the Lowden ranch.
.“Shouldn’t wonder a mite if he was
getting married,” Jenny said. “Bess
Slocum is a fine girl. She can ride
anything on four feet. Took the prize
at the Posy county rodeo.”
Betty was silent. She’d thought a
lot about Reid ever since that awful
Saturday morning when he came to
tier rescue. Kindness, tenderness, a
delicate reserve new to her. in her
contact with the boys of her own set

the gentleman than Dick Morrow !

afternoon and was getting ready to
go home when she heard a knock at
the door. Reid stood there, grim-
mouthed, grave. Betty’s brown eyes
“Thought maybe you’d let me walk
along home with you,” Reid said.
“Of course! I'm just ready.”
They walked along, the calico pony
“Are you married, Reid?” Betty
“Married! Who to?”
“To Bess Slocum.”
“Bess is my cousin. Cousins don’t
marry in our family. Bess and T
don’t hitch good anyway. What gave
you that idea?"
“You’ve been away so long—”
“Sure. Getting me some decent
clothes. I—I couldn’t ask you to
marry a buckaroo, could I, honey?"
“Clothes don’t matter much to me,”
Betty said softly.
“Don’t they, honey? I was afraid
they might. You’ve been used to dif-
ferent ways of living—I’ve had a good
bit of schooling, honey. I've got a
fine ranch. I’ve got money saved
up—” His voice faltered, he looked
at her anxiously.
“Stop ! Stop !” cried Betty. “I told
you clothes don’t matter. Neither
does anything else where you’re con-

American Fathers Held
Neglectful of Duties
American children, particularly boys,
develop unevenly these modern days
because they do not get enough atten-
tion from their fathers. The modern
hoy lacks a fair opportunity because
the average father, preoccupied with
business, denies him the adult mascu-
line companionship he needs.
Once a little boy on a farm trotted
about at his daddy’s heels as lie
plowed ; today elaborate farm machin-
ery does the work and there is no
place for the boy. Once the town child
followed his daddy about on evenings
as he mowed the lawn, worked the
garden or looked after his horse; but
today the father hurries off to the
golf links and the child must find oth-
er amusement. Once the family had
three meals together, but now the fa-
ther generally breakfasts alone and
lunches at a club or restaurant, so
that the opportunity for table intimacy
is reduced two-thirds. Once for the
evenings, there was a family reading
table and games, but today daddy is
off to his club, or to a meeting, or to
improve his form, or his technique, or
his mind. The frivolous find frivolity
and the serious-minded find extension
courses until there is no time for the
deeper joys of leisurely family com-
Do American fathers realize that the
tie between father and son is the most
unbreakable tie possible to mortals?

and play together, of many little ex

Most travelers are familiar with
pictures of the mammoth figure of
Buddha in Japan. It may be seen at
Kamakura, a pleasant summer resort
near Yokohama, which is also famous
for its beaches and beautiful moun-
tain top views. The Daibutsu, or Big
Buddha is the largest bronze casting
in existence, and sits in state upon a
lotus flower, with a calm and peace-
ful expression. His eyes of pure gold
seem to be absorbed In meditation. On
his head are 830 curls each nine
inches high, representing the snails
which, according to legend, crawled
on his head to shelter its bald sur-
face from the sun’s rays.
V ELLOW calico and rule-rack braid
* —a combination which to the un-
initiated may flavor somewhat of the
old-fashioned' and the most bumble,
but not in the opinion of the style-
conscious. No indeed! There is
nothing smarter for this season than
simple cottons made up as swankily
as it is possible to make them.
No doubt it. is this thought of the
chic of washable weaves, which in-
spired tl.e designer of the frock in the
picture to glorify ordinary yellow
calico with an artful treatment which
calls for short puff sleeves, a two-
tiered ruffled skirt and a bodice which
defines a normal waistline.
The trickiest thing about this cos-
tume is its hat made of the selfsame
calico as the dress. The idea of match-
ing hats is making a widespread ap-
peal for summer. The suit of shan-
tung, linen or pique now takes unto
itself a hat of self fabric, either a
beret or a brimmed model. The hat
with a brim is usually machine stitched
row and row. Some of these fabric
hats are draped and mdnipulated with
all the flattering effect of more formal
modes. The self-fabric movement for
hats also extends to flowery chiffons,
organdies, dotted swiss and other
sheer weaves. These dressier modes
are often considerably shirred and
sometimes flower or lace trimmed.
As to rick-rack braid, the which so
enhances the modish frock and the
hat illustrated, stylists have captured
this little zig zag trimming for their
very own this season, and you should
see what they are doing with it!
Making entire hats of it, in either
white or lovely tints, sewing it to-
gether row and row and point to poiut,
then starching them. Women are mak-
ing these hats themselves. In some in-
stances part of the hat is made of
fabric with bands of the rick-rack in-
Ever so clever to wear with ones’
linen or calico sports frock is the
beret of self fabric. It is possible to
buy patterns for various berets most
anywhere. It adds a smart touch if a
buna of sewed-together rick-rack he
fitted about the forehead, the same
tied in a prim little bow at one side.
The matching hat idea is carried
out very charmingly as an ensemble
item for the costume whose frock is
of print, with a coat in solid tone, in
this way: the crown of the hat is
vade of the printed silk or cotton of
the frock, with the monotone fabric
of tlie coat fashioning Hie brim.

Witness fashion holding high car-
nival on Hie beach 1 Mingling in
the vast throng of water fans and
beach sojourners, were it not for the
blue sky above, the endless expanse
of sea and the wide stretches of sand,
one might almost believe the company
about to be a band of gay masquerad-
ers, so varied, so fantastic, so make-
believe their costumes.
This theme of character-dress, which
is furnishing such amusement to tbr
leisure class, offers also a new outlet
for expression to the designer pos-
sessed of “ideas.” Indeed, vacation-
ing on the beach demands a very spe-
cial wardrobe—one entirely set apart
from the regular program of dress.

the role of a bold pirate of the sea,

carefree maiden posing to the right in

houettes a spot of gorgeous color
against the horizon. Her pajamas are
made of printed silk, which interpat-
terns flaming red with orange, white
and navy blue. Her bolero is navy
crepe, her hat nonchalantly flares its
huge red, yellow and blue straw brim
back from her smiling face.
Her companion’s suit goes nautical,

background. Her dark blue pajamas
take on fashionable pleated flares
which extend from the knees. Another
big hat, if you please. You may fancy
it of straw or stitched linen or sham
tung for it is apt to be any one of
the three. Enormous hats, just flocks
of them flapping their brims, add a
most picturesque feature to this sea-
son’s beach scenes.

tured in the tiny panel) is wearing,
quite amusing. Evidently the fair

at the mountain. It s- ined to

Betty had come from a little
eastern town tucked in among the
hills, and this calm, blue gfcint was
the friendliest thing she bad yet found
out here. Teaching was homesick
business. Yesterday a letter from
home bad made her cry for an hour.
Dick Morrow was going to'marry Peg
Elmore. As she read the words Betty
wished siie had accepted Dick when
he asked her, then she wouldn’t have
had to leave Pineville at all.
She stood now on the porch of the
small ranch-house gazing at the moun-
lajn. It seemed to beckon, to call'

than its name. The Lowdens hadn't

young couple who were trying out

aside from her board money, bad been
warmly welcomed by Jenny Lowden.

to the porch on his queer calico pony.
Mrs, Lowden laughed and exchanged
knowing glances with her husband
whenever Reid Kilmer appeared.
That'made Betty angry. She would
;fiave nothing to say to the fellow.
He wasn’t the kind she was used to,
not like Dick Morrow, with his sleek
hair and graceful manner. Reid was
coarse, rough, awkward, a bit ugly.

cheeks burned at the look he had
given her. No man had ever looked
at her like that.

ERADICATION OF PANTRY INSECT PESTS
Cleaning Crevices With a Skewer as
(Prepared bv the United States Department
There are more than forty different
beetles and moths that infest grains
and other dry stored foods. Many of
them are chiefly troublesome in gran-
aries and warehouses and on railroad
cars used for transporting such goods.
Some of them occasionally invade
kitchens and storerooms in private
dwellings. Among those most fre-
quently found are the cadelle beetle,
the mealworm beetle, the confused
flour beetle, and the saw-toothed
grain beetle. These beetles feed on
flour, grain products, dried fruits,
seeds, nuts, spices, tobacco and other
starchy and woody materials. Some
prefer one food and some another,
.while some are quite general feeders.
The bureau of entomology of the
United States Department of Agricul-
ture explains that these beetles can
live on very small quantities of dry
cereal that they find in cracks, cor-
ners, and crevices of flour bins, pan-
tries, and kitchen cabinets. So it be-
hooves the housewife to see that no

The Indian meal moth is another of

best methods of ridding the kitchen

which foods are to be stored should
be sterilized. Clean all lint and dust
from shelves where the insects might
live. Use plenty of hot water and
soap in cleaning. If you are closing
the house during the warm months,
even for a few weeks, it is better to
throw away small amounts of cereal
than to store it with the likelihood
that it may become infested and give

THREE BIG AIMS
IN MEAT COOKERY
Tender Cuts Can be Cooked
in Short Time.
(Prepared by the United States Department
In preparing several popular leaflets
on meat cookerynhe food specialists
in the bureau of home economics of
the United States Department of Ag-
riculture have emphasized three def-
inite aims. These aims have grown
out of long experience in cooking
meats in the laboratory in connection
with a nation-wide study of the fac-
tors that influence palatability.
The first point developed is that
meat must be cooked according to the
cut. It is well known that the cuts
of meat from different parts of a
carcass vary somewhat in tenderness.
Tender cuts can be cooked quickly un-
less they are large roasts, and are best
cooked in utensils without lids and
without water. Less tender cuts
should be cooked slowly with a judi-
cious amount of water to soften the
How to cook meat to bring out the
maximum of flavor is the next point
emphasized. The home economics
specialists advocate browning meat on
the outside to develop rich flavor.
After that is done, cooking is con-
tinued in tlie appropriate way for the
probable tenderness of the cut. The
flavor of the meat may also be en-
hanced by savory stuffings and well-
The third point emphasized in giv-
ing directions for cooking meat in the
household is to eliminate guesswork
as to when the meat is done. The
oven thermometer and the roast meat
thermometer are recommended as a
means to this end. “So many minutes
to the pound” is not a sure guide. The
roast meat thermometer, put directly
into the meat before the cooking is be-
gun, shows when the desired stage has
been readied. Moreover, it shows
when to stop cooking. Every addi-
tional minute’s cooking beyond tlie re-
quired “rare," “medium,” or “weil-
done,” stage simply wastes the meat
by shrinking it unduly.
Discover Vitamin A in
Ripe MansiniJIo Olives
Ripe Manzanillo olives may he
served for their food value rather
than as a mere relish, for this variety
has been found to be rich in vitamin
A. Manzanillo olives, which are of
medium size, are grown in California,
ripened on the tree, treated in the
canning factory to develop flavor, and
sealed and processed in air-tight con-
tainers like other canned foods. They
contain from 14 to 20 per cent of oil.
Samples of commercially packed
ripe olives of the Manzanillo variety
were recently tested in a series of
feeding experiments by the bureau of
home economics of the United States
Department of Agriculture. The
growth of the 50 laboratory animals
given these olives as a part of their
regular diet indicated that they were
receiving an abundance of vitamin A.
This is the vitamin essential for
growth and well being at all ages,
for successful reproduction, and for
resisting bacterial Infection.
Two or Three Vegetables
Are Generally Chosen.
iPrepared by the United States Department
Cymling, eggplant, green peppers,
large Spanish onions and cabbage, are
among the vegetables often served
stuffed. Usually the stuffing is made
of other vegetables and some cooked
starchy material such as. bread
crumbs, rice, or spaghetti, to give
body. Two or three flavors that
blend well together are generally chos-
en from among such vegetables as to-
mato, corn, celery, cabbage, spinach,
string beans and carrots. Onion fla-
vor is desirable In almost every com-
bination. Small amounts of two or

three cooked vegetable leftovers may
well be used in the stuffing.
Below is a recipe for stuffed cym-
ling, from the bureau of home econ-
omics of the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture. Vegetables are
suggested, but not required.
1 large lender cymling
1 y2 cups dry bread crumbs
1 tbs. chopped onion
1 tbs. chopped green pepper
4 tbs. butter
Salt and pepper
Vz cup vegetable if desired, such as
cooked peas, carrots, beans or celery
Crisped bacon or cubes of salt pork if
Wash the cymling. Scoop out the
pulp with a spoon, being careful not
to break the outer skin. Cook tlie
cymling shell until tender in boiling
salted water. Remove and drain.
While the shell is still warm, rub the
inside with butter so the flavor will
go through tlie vegetable. In the
meantime, brown the onion and green
pepper in the fat. add the bread
crumbs, and stir until well mixed.
Also cook the inside of the cymling
until tender and dry, add to it the
seasonings and tlie bread crumbs. If
any of tlie vegetables mentioned are
used, or the crisped bacon or salt pork,
mix with the other ingredients. Place
the mixture in the shell and cover the
top with buttered crumbs. Bake in
the oven until hot through and golden
brown on top. Cut in slices and
serve at once.
Rugs may he dyed at home with any
of the standard dyes. Clean and damp-
en the rug first, then lay it flat over
newspapers to prevent the dye from
staining the floor, and apply the hot
dye with a scrub brush. Any color
may be used, depending on the shade
desired, but the original color must
be considered. For example, a soft
red applied over a tan rug may make
a rich warm shade of brown, or ap-
plied over a bright green will give an
attractive gray green.
