Colored Velvet to Break the Monotony
of Black and White.
PARIS, Aug. 17 Some one here with
a knack for figuring has reasoned
that about two-thirds of the new hats
are toques, and one-third are large
So you have it entirely within your
own power to choose whether you shall
be one of the majority or one of the
minority. The only thing to influence
your choice ought to be the type of
face you have. If large hats are more
becoming than small ones, be with the
one-third. If the toque suits you,
Incidentally, be it said that predic
tion has it that by mid Winter there
will be many more large hats than
Colored Velvet Hats.
We have heard so much about velvet
hats of black and satin hats of white
that we are ready to welcome the bril
liant colors that have lately shown
themselves in the millinery world.
Cerise and red, purple and green, are all
used now, and they are supplemented
by many neutral shades of brown,
taupe and gray.
Some of the colored velvet hats are
bound with heavy ribbon. For the
woman economically inclined, this
binding is a boon. For the edge of a
velvet hat soon looks shabby, and the
ribbon binding serves as a durable
' Novelties In Trlnhnlngr.
Metallic ribbons and flowers are al
most as prevalent as the velvet hats
themselves. They are especially well
suited for combination with velvet
Huge gold and silver roses and bands
of gold and silver ribbon are used, and
often a strand or narrow gold or silver
ribbon or cord is wound in and out
among the flowers that band the crown
of a small velvet toque, or around the
stem of an ostrich feather, the flues
being pushed aside here and there to
make room for it.
Then there are kid and leather
flowers, and shiny leather foliage used
with silk and velvet flowers black

age has also brought about the use of

bows on some of the velvet hats, and

flattened out at the ends, are arranged
like the four petals of a flower about

used to encircle the crown or brim of

The helmet hat is coming in for a
good deal of attention. It is decidedly
smart. And its very name makes it ap
propriate to war days.
SCHOOL LUNCH BASKET.
What to put In the school lunch bas
ket is the all-absorbing problem of
mothers, now that school days are ap
proaching. After three months of home
luncheon it Is difficult to reconcile a
small boy or girl to a basket meal of
a necessarily limited variety of edibles.
EXPLOITED BY FRENCH DRESS
Most children dislike to be burdened
with a lunch basket which must be car
ried home every day, and the wise
housewife has a collection df empty
pasteboard boxes fcr this purpose,
cracker packages being most useful. An
assortment of wrapping paper, plenty
of string, a pile of paper napkins and
some paraffine paper will simplify the
task of packing the lunch each morn
ing. Careful mothers will not give chil
dre pennies and nickeis with which to
purchase cakes and candies at noon, as
their selection of sweets is seldom In
accordance with the laws of digestion.
Such fruits as bananas, oranges and
apples are easily packed, and are bet
ter for a school iilild than rich cake
and pie. Occasionally, hard-boiled or
deviled eggs, accompanies! by plain
bread and butter, may be substituted
for cold meat sandwiches. Little jars
of potato or chicken salad can easily
be put into the lunch basket and some
times pickles and olives vary the mid
day school meal. Once in a while,
cheese with crackers help to fill the
basket, and a cold wing or leg of fowl
Is a delicacy in the school lunch circle.
A modified club sandwich, and one
which comprises almost a meal in
itself, is made of two slices of bread
toasted on one side. The other side is
buttered, and lettuce, a small piece of
bacon, a piece of cold chicken or other
fowl, a slice of pickle and a little may
onnaise dressing constitutes the filling.
Spices should be used In sandwiches
Brown Bread Sandwiches. Between
slices of Boston brown bread, buttered
thinly, spread a paste of seeded raisins
finely chopped with English walnuts.
This is a wholesome sandwich and
serves as a semi-sweet for the school
Fruit Bread Work sufficient bread
sponge for a small loaf into half a cup
of butter and a half cup of sugar. Have
dried pears or apples stewed and sweet
ened to a rich syrup, stir two cups of
nut meats, hickory or English walnut,
and spice to taste. Add sufficient flour
to knead into a loaf, let rise until very,
light, then bake In a slow oven two
hours. This bread buttered and cut
thin makes a wholesome sandwich.
Egg salad Peel a half dozen hard
boiled eggs and cut a small piece off
the white at the end so they will stand
up. Cut in halves .and remove the
yolks, press through a potato ricer and
mix until it is smooth with a table-
spoonful of melted butter, one-sixth
cup of salad dressing, salt, pepper ana
vinegar to taste. Refill whites and pin
halves together with a toothpick.
Apple salad Take firm, tart apples,
cut into dice and add enough celery
cut in the same manner to the propor
tion of two-third celery to one-third
apple. Mix with mayonnaise dressing.

"After All "
,OU'RE wanted on the phone. Miss
1 Winthrop. Just as popular as
always, I see," said Mrs. Kerr, keeper
of the uptown boarding-house in New
York to which Marian had returned
from force of habit.
It was the morning after Marian's
return from Atlantic City. Depositing
a paper weight on her pile of writing
paper, Marian descended to the tele
phone. She was uncomfortably afraid,
yet rebelliously desirous, that it was
Challoner calling up. And it was.
"I received your note, Marian," he
said, "and came right back to New
York on a night train. There was no
need of running away, was there?"
"Oh, yes, there was," returned Marian
uneasily. "A very great need of it. My
decision was final. So there was no
need of making matters any worse, any
harder, for yourself and for me "
"Don't be so tragic," laughed Chal
loner. "I'm not," denied Marian. "I'm merely
trying to avert a tragedy."
Well, I'm here to help whatever is
dona. I insist on the traditional two
heads being better than one in a mat
ter like this. When may I see you?"
"I repeat that you mustn't."
"But I insist that I must! Listen.
I have a very Important matter to dis

advice. There Is no one I can go to
"Use the mails," interrupted Marlar.
with a jingle of mischief in her voice.
"Rot," laughed Challoner. "It's 10:30
now. Meet me at 12:30 for luncheon at
the Astor. Please don't disappoint me.
I'll expect you," he finished rapidly,
and snapped the receiver upon its
hook before Marian could add further
parley or protest.
She returned to her room, resolved
to ignore Challoner's request and dis
appoint him. She sat musing dreamily-.
After all, it was interesting to have
this likable man trailing her from
city to city.
After all, it had been decidedly
pleasant to hear his familiar voice, his
roughly low tones, over the telephone.
After all, she felt less lonely In the
big, chaotic city now that she knew
he was here.

After all, why not be considerate
and listen to what he had to say?
She felt that she really ought to do

little in return.
