What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The skirt is a tionneed iirrangetnent. and the coat is a rather com- plicated empire model, for it is built with a peplum to which a tieuuce is at- tached. The collar and cuffs are of taupe velvet. COLLARETS OF FUR. Parisiennes Wearing Them Combined KITCHEN CHAT. With Lace and Velvet. Smart Parisiennes are wearing col - tares of fur combined with lace or velvet. These are wonderfully pretty ind add just the correct touch to gown or coat suit. Short strips of fur, just long enough to encircle the throat and too small to use for any other purpose, are lined with white satin. Plaited frills of lace are then stitch- ed by band on both the top and bot- tom of the fur band. Strips of fur one or two inches in width cam be used effectively to bor- der a center strip of velvet or fur. A lovely combination is ermine and sapphire blue velvet. Stitch the nar- row strips of white fur to the band of velvet and border it with knife plait- ed frills of velvet or tulle. Use white' satin to line the collaret and finish the closing with a flat bow of velvet. Perhaps you have a strip of mink three inches in width. If so stitch it to a band of seal brown satin. Make two plaited frills of the satin and stitch them to the top and bottom of the collar portion. When the hooks and eyes have been attached to the ends finish the closing with a plaited bow of satin caught through the cen- ter with a buckle of pearl, cut steel or jet. Many women possess a worn set of furs which can be cut into strips and utilized in this manner. Small hats with puffed crowns of velvet and nar- row brims of fur are lovely when fashioned to match the collarets. To Clean Felt Hats.

These hints may be of assistaum to them. The blouse must not be wrung by hand, but be put through a wringer and then pressed, while still damp, on the wrong side. A hot iron must never be employed. Dissolve a piece of gum arable the size of a pea In one pint of boiling wa- ter and dip the blouse in this. Iron it with a piece of muslin between the iron and the lace, and finally pull out the points and edges of the lace. Flannel blouses should be wa . slied in Warm water, neither too hot DOC too cold. A little ammonia may be added; but, above all, the washing must be accomplished quickly. The last rinsing, like the first washing water, should be warm. Before a lace blouse is washed It should be soaked at least an hour in soapy water with a teaspoonful of borax added to it. Then remove the blouse and wash it very gently in a lather of soap and hot water. Rinse It thoroughly In clean waters. A silk blouse should never be put into boiling water, for It gives the silk a yellow tinge and impoverishes the material. It should be dipped into a strong lather of tepid water and be squeezed in it. On no account let it be rubbed, nor should the silk be soaped. Several rinsing waters must be used, for if the soap is not quite washed out the silk will harden. In the last rins- ing water of all put a little methylated spirit, and the silk is white a few drops of pale blue may be added. Silk blouses must be ironed while they are damp, but if ironed when too wet will turn yellow. Peanut Sandwiches. There are several ways for using peanuts for sandwiches. They may be simply pounded or chopped fine, well sprinkled with salt, moistened with a few drops of olive oil and spread thick- ly between slices of buttered bread, or they may be powderol find stirred in tanyonnaise for the filling, mixed with erilini cheese, and spread between cra('liers or slices 4of thin buttered bread. Another way: Al'ith a biscuit cutter cut slices of bread round, cover with whipped cream (not sweetened). mash some peanuts fine and sprinkle thickly over the cream. Nice for after- noon luncheons.

When the Hudson Bay Trading com- pany began its trading among the In- diana it was found that by selling the Indians liquor they could more easily be induced to trade their peitries. The first whisky or intoxicant of in- ferior quality was distilled in England and brought to America in large barrels, but in transporting it overland it was found more convenient to di- vide it into small kegs. The traders soon became aware of the fact that by diluting the whisky with water more furs could be obtained. This was practived for some time, but the In- dians learned that good whisky poured on a tire would cause it to flame up. but had the whisky been diluted the fire would be quenched. It was by this simple experiment that the term \tire water\ became a common word among Indians. A chief who had experienced the bad effects of whisky among hie people said it was certainly distilled from the heart of wildcats and the tongues of women from the effects it produced. ANIMAL ODDITIES. Birds never eat flreties and really seem to shun their vicinity. North American reindeer usually se- lect an old doe for their leader. The temperature of a swallow's body is extraordinarily high, no less than 112 degrees F. Cats and beasts of prey reflect fifty times as much light from their eyes as human beings. The average lake trout lays 6.000 eggs each season and the whitefish a greater number. The female English viper does not lay eggs. She hatches them internally and brings forth her young alive. I'arrots are usually vegetarians, though the Kea parrots of New Zen - bind have developed a fondness for sheep. Garfish, sunfish, baskIne sharks and dolphins all have the habit of :swim- ming with their eyes above the sur- face of the water.

The tops of the hills were still covered, end no tinkle came from the frozen creeks. . Tom Mowbray, ascending to the top of Old Pine Knob, after a coast of nearly half a wile on his stout sleigh, looked on a fairy world. The ever- greens were loaded with snow and bearded with hoarfrost, the dark green boughs standing out between like won- drous carvings in frames of purest white. The air was like honey and diamonds. Everything glittered blind- ingly beneath the sun, which shone. brilliant and hard, from a cloudless sky. Panting, Mowbray paused a moment on the top of Old Pine before dropping upon the sled for another dash down the road, a creamy ribbon between smooth white hills. It was a goodly stretch of country he surveyed. On the right of the road and halfway to the foot of the hill stood Ills own home. From the kitchen chimney a column of smoke, untroubled by vagrant wind, rose straight in the air. A few rods beyond the house the railroad track crossed the road.

From al brisk trot his guilt insensibly slackened to is shuttle. When the slope of Oldi Pine began he subsided to a walk. He' gave one or two backward glances in response to urging from Miss Boone's red lips. When the cutter stood square- ly on the railroad track he glanced sad- ly at the towering hill and stopped. The girl clucked impatiently and! jerked at tile reins. Duka planted hist legs hninovebly and laid back an ear, Miss Boone laid the whip across the horse's broad back apologetically, with, no result. Then, the gray eyes flashing, and the lips crossed together until the\. were a mere scarlet line, she struck right heartily. Duke never budged. Mowbray, unobserved by the girl, stood on the hilltop and enjoyed the af- fair immensely. \She's got grit, all right,\ he observed to his sled. \At first she thought the old boy was tired.
