The Use of the Valance. .
THE valance is primarily to carry
the color of the side drapery
across the window so as to make a
frame. The color of the drapery
should, of course, be so related to
the color of the floor covering as to
carry a part of that color up the
wall. The valance finishes it at the I
A valance is not always used. Cur
tains are sometimes .hung on a cor
nice made to match the wood trim
of the room and sometimes, wiere
light is the prime consideration, cur
tains are merely hung at either side
of a window and the top is left
clear. But from a decorative point
of view the valance is very import
ant. It may be severely piairi and
stretched over a . curved . frame,
trimmed perhaps with band or gal
lon, or it may be box-pleated evenly
across the window. It may be straight
or shaped but the only rule which
must be followed is that the wider
the valance the lower the room will
appear. In a very low room- the
valance should be so narrow as to
be merely a connecting note of color.
Ten to 12 inches for the ordinary
window will be found satisfactory.
If a decorative effect is desired,
with plain drapery a figured val
ance is often used, or a plain val
ance connecting plain furniture with
figured drapery

ASTORIA, Or. Doar Miss Tingle:
How can I ,make cottage cheese out of a
ciuart of milk? Have you a recipe for
bran cookiea using oatmeal and white
flour? Thanking you, MRS. E. F. H.
COTTAGE cheese is made by heat
ing sour, well-clabbered (but
not stale-tasting) milk to about
blood heat. This is beet done in a
double boiler, if a small quantity is
used. Over heating will make the
curd tough. Heat only long enough
to have the whey separate, then
hang up in a double cheesecloth bag
and let drip.
The whey can be used like sour
milk in making biscuits, cake or
. fcread, Xhe dripped curd should be

Response One of Splendid Spirit,
Says Treasurer "Appointed '
for Relief Funds.
Neither the lapse cf t"me nor the
turmoil of Christmas activity serves
to abate contributions of Portland
citizens to ine Astoria relief fund,
supervised by the Chamber of Com
merce. Additional subscriptions in
the amount' of $2747 were received
yesterday by W. H. Crawford, treas
urer, forcing the grand total up
ward to $53,121.
"The response has been one of
splendid spirit," said Mr. Crawford,
"and testifies to a neighborly feel
ing that reflects much credit upon
the donors."
E. N. Weinbaum, representative
of the chamber, who spent a week
in the coast city conferring with
officials and committees, returned
to Portland yesterday to make his
final report to the local organiza
"Business is gradually being re
sumed in Astoria," said Mr. Wein
baum, "and among the scores of
temporary frame structures that
have sprung up west of "the fire
area there are several that already
have installed stocks and are open
for trade. Too, the excitement in
cident to the disaster has passed,
and the citizens are bent upon com
mon constructive effort."

in SOCIAL correspondence it is not
good form to use numbers for
dates, trains, etc., as is correct in
business letters. ' The words and
numerals must be spelled out, thus;
"December twenty-fifth."
The difference between the busi
ness and social codes in this mat
ter is very pronounced. In business,
for example, "JiMfth Avenue" is
shortened to "5 Ave.," but in so
cial letters "Jan. 2" is "January sec
ond," "$2.00 is "two dollars," "4:30
P. M." is "half-past four o'clock in
the afternoon," and "8:15 A. M. on
the P. R. R." becomes "a quarter
after eight in the morning on the
Pennsylvania Railroad." The busi
ness method makes for speed; the
social code implies leisure, and each
is correct in its own circle. It would
be quite as unbusinesslike to write
"January the fourteenth, Nineteen
twenty-three" in a commrcial let
ter as it would be undignified to ab
breviate it into "Jan. 14, '23," or "1-14-23"
in social correspondence.

Mother Gets Day Off
for Christmas ,
"Say, Sue, haB it struck you that
mother doesn't seem so terribly
keen about this Christmas-dinner-in-a-hotel
idea? I thought she'd be
tickled to death to go to a big hotel
with soft njusic and all that sort of
thing, because she always works
herself to death cooking. I wanted
to please her when I invited the
family and I wouldn't have the din
ner away from home for the world
if she doesn't like it."
"Well, Tom, to tell you the truth,
I think mother would be tickled
pink if she only had the clothes.
She hasn't had much of anything
new except a hat for a long time and
she's a bit timid, you know. She
shrinks from a lot of. people if she
hasn't a lot of confidence that she's
dressed properly."
"Well, I don't blame her. That's
true with us all. I guess mother
hasn't had a lot of extra money for
clothes with all those notes coming
due. Well, why don't we ask Frjd
and Harriet to go in with us and
get mother a pretty coat and dress
for Christmas? You say she has a
new hat?"
"Yes, and a beauty. Tom, you're
an old sport, aren't you? We'd love
to do that, but can we afford to
pay out all that money right now?"
"Of course, but whydon't we get
them at Cherry's at 349 Morrison
street, second floor. That's where
I buy my clothes? I have noticed
a women's department, too. We
could have six months to pay and
the four of us could manage it
e..-.ily. They are open every evening
till eight o'clock this week, so we
could go there on our way to lodge
Thursday night." Adv.
