HIMTS FQ-R SUMMER eOMPLEXIOM
HOW TO KEEP IT LOVELY AND FREE FROM TAN,
SUNBURN AND FRECKLES.
i 1 ; 1 : .
BELLA 3IONCRIEFF has a com
plexion and -oh, the care she takes
of it! '
It has to be put to bed occasionally
during the day; it denies Itself Ices and
other deleterious compounds, and it has to
have beef-tea administered to it when it
cornea home from a. hard-bought -dance.
Just now It has to muster all its resources
lor the lively Summer campaign with
tan, freckles and sunburn.
Although freckles are an indication of a
fine skin, that, alas! is no consolation.
"While sun, and even air. Increase freckles,
they are not the primary cause. Any
cure must Involve the exclusion of both.
Caution must be exercised regarding ex
posure to wind and sun: big hats, -veils
and gloves should be worn. The modern
maid is even threatening to adopt a
colonial fashion that of wearing a mask.
Before going out in the sun it is advis
able to rub on a little "pommade de cou
combres," "or any good cold cream. At
night the face should be bathed with
elderflower water, which cools and re
freshes, and therefore benefits, the skin;
so also does rose water, but scarcely with
as good results.
Never bathe the face while it Is hot.
"Wait until night, then touch up freckles
with a lotion. If the nose Is a shining
mark, owing to an aggravated case of
sunburn, dip a soft cloth In sweet cream
and lay It. over nose and cheeje. The re
lief la almost instantaneous.
Summer freckles those "kisses of the
sun" are not so difficult to dal with as
those which are constitutional and perma
nent, or cold freckles, as they are called.
"With a little care.tho skin may be kept
free from this disfigurement.
Some skins are so delicate that they be
come freckled on the slightest exposure to
the open air in Summer. The cause is
that the iron in the blood, forming a
function with the oxygen, leaves a rusty
mark where the Junction takes place.
The obvious remedy is to dissolve the
combination. One cure is a lotion made
by adding one-half ounce of lemon juice
to one-half pint of rose water, and adding
two drams of powdered alum. Apply with
a clean camel's hair brush.
Another remedy is to wash the face and
neck and arms and hands, too, if neces
sary, with elderflower water and apply
an ointment made by simmering gently
together one ounce of Venlse soap and
one dram each of dellquated oil of tartar
and oil of bitter almonds. "When the
mixture acquires consistency, two drops
of rhodium may be added. "Wash the
emollient off in the morning with elder
Still another cure la about one-half pint
of milk, the juice of a lemon arid a table
spoonful of brandy. Boll and skim, then
add a dram of rock alum.
Another good reclpo is the following:
Rub one-half dram of powdered borax
with one-half ounce of glycerine, grad
ually add three ounces of rose water and
one dram of bitter almond water, and
lastly, one dram of tincture of benzoin.

The big football player slammed his

leaving the Latin translation to take care
To lounge dejectedly in his chair, gazing
pensively at the mantelpiece, had become
one of Bob's dally occupations. Perhaps
the white letters. W-E-L-L-E-S-L-E-Y,
standing out conspicuously on a penant
in the center, had fascinated him. Per
haps the mere knowledge that she had
given it to him made Fate seem less cruel.
Be that as it may, the "Wellesley pen

the spot wherein the photograph of the
reigning Queen of the football player's
heart had hitherto stood. A long row
of pretty faces reaching across the wail
told their own story of a brief reign.
A.nd now, where each in turn had stood,
hung an inanimate pennant.
Tom was rudely recalled from dream
land by a knock at the door.
"Come in!" he shouted. Inhospitably,
and without looking around.
"What's up, Bob?" inquired Ned Sum
mers, entering the room in football at
tire. "Why are you mooning around
hero? The fellows are waiting."!
He glanced about the roomv for eome
explanation of Bob's evident mental dis
turbance. "Hang football," was tho uncivil re
sponse. Ned vented his feelings by e whistle of
surprise. After a minute he laid a hand
on Bob's shoulder.
"What's the matter, old chap?" he
asked. "Do you want those fellows to

eye fell on the pennant on the mantel.
"Where's her picture? -"Who is it now?"
He walked to the fireplace.
That's the question where is It? She
didn't give me one."
Bob's dejected air was so unusual as
to cau4e Ned to look curiously at him.
'I say. Bob, is your brain affected?" he
asked, half seriously. It was unlike the
halfback to succumb to anything senti
mental. "No. I tell "you, Ned, if s my heart
I'm. hard hit"
"Why don't you tell her?
"Why don't I ride to the moon In an
auto?" Evidently thero were rough spots
in Bob's temper.

Ned's expression was one of bewilder

lor a turn in the water, intending to
return and apologize for some things I
said. "When I was nicely out In the mid

two miles from shore, my Balls empty
and no sign of an oar."
""Well?" asked Ned, leaning against the
mantelpiece and becoming interested.
"Weill It wasn't well at all," corrected
Bob, Impatiently. "Whea I finally reached
the hotel, several hours later, she was
Sgone, but not without a parting shot at

Bob's eyes sought the pennant again.
"But why don't you write to her?
She'll listen to reason." Ned was begin

"I did, and I'm waiting yet for the answer."

across his friend's face.-

this won't win our game for us. Come,

into the street together, Ned xaa on ahead

the second half Bob Terbell, bending over
with his head between his knees, glanced
casually at the grandstand.1t Through the
space he saw a white-lettered pennant
floating In the breeze. Without thought
of the game he stood erect Just as the
signal was to be given. On a pretence of
adjusting his nose-guard, he stood for a
minute, while the signal was held.

flying pennant I should have fumbled
through the whole game. A part of my

And a long time afterward,, when he
had taken off his football clothes and had
regained some of. his equanimity, he said:

A "POLLY PIPER" PARTY
NQVEL ENTERTAINMENT MUCH IN VOGUE
PORCH parties are now tho vogue. A
clever hostess recently sent out in
vitations for a "Polly Piper" party. The
cards gave no clew to the nature of the
affair, and each guest was left to wonder
what a "Polly Piper" rngbt be.
When the guests assembled on the wide
porch, they found it set with low tables
and chairs of all sorts and conditions.
Gay cushions promised comfort, plants
and hanging baskets offered sweetness,
but no "Polly Piper" was in evidence.
On the small tables an array of clay
pipes was spread, all new and sweet
smelling. Were the fair guests Invited to
a smoker? The appearance of the hostess,
loaded down with sheaves of tissue and
crepe paper of every imaginable shade,
with scissors and with mucilage bottles,
relieved their perplexity. When she an
nounced that each guest must make her
own "Polly Piper," there was an instant
babble of questions and exclamations.
Each guest was given a pipe, with in-
4-st ructions that she was to dress it with

prizes were to be awarded to the two

one might select three strips of paper
from which to fashion a costume. To
make the doll complete, each one must
have a faco drawn also.
Tha guests went immediately to work,
selecting- their wrappers with reference to
the character which their particular doll
was to assume. Gray and white papers
were chosen for the doll which was to don
Quaker garb; navy bluo-and red for the
Salvation Army girl; blue and white for
the yachting costume, while the gayest
colors on the table went to rig out a ver

who preferred to use it
