Tou will find in the preceding- an
swer two of the many ways of making
rose beads. If you want to use citric
acid with cooked rose pulp, put It in
with the fresh petals, as Its mission is
to prevent either fermentation or loss
of color in cooking. Cook the petals
like spinach. Chop and rub through a
sieve, like spinach, and use starch or
flour and talcum powder as "binder"
and "filler" respectively. Knead to a
flexible paste. Finish as above.
Write again if you wanted directions
for the ordinary black or brown beads.
Spinach beads are similarly made
but with a pinch of soda in place of
citric acid. Other "rose" beads are
made of a flexible paste of hot mashed
potatoes dyed and perfumed ta taste

I cooked salad dressings had been given
I shortly before your letter was re
ceived. It is not possible for me to

"best from a gastronomic standpoint.
and so on. Why not learn to like oil?
French dressing is so quickly made,
inexpensive, . wholesome, " generally
liked and so widely adaptable to so
many different kinds and types of
salad that It might perhaps be called
"best." - It, however, necessarily con
tains oil and is not cooked. Two cooked
recipes are given below. Write again
if neither suits you and please explain
what are the points that count towards
best in your view of salad dressings.
2. - I have never noticed "the watery
substance" ; you refer to. Presumably
It would be whey from an overcooked
or overacidifled dressing in which milk
was -used; or else vinegar from a dress
ing in which insufficient "binding ma
terial" was used, so that the solid
particles were not held completely In
suspension. Beating with a Dover
I egg beater would probably remedy the
matter, if the dressing was otherwise
in good condition, as might well be.
S. No; not without preservatives,
and then not without loss, of flavor.
Nor is "indefinite" keeping desirable
in ordinary life, since the charm of
salad flavorings lie in their evanescent
freshness, and salad dressings are so
easily and quickly made at home. Most
home-made salad dressings will keep
fairly well, for at least two weeks. In
covered glass cans in a refrigerator
or cool cellar. This seems long enough
for any salad dressing outside a
museum or factory. It is possible to

MERICAN women have taken up
the French fashion of wearing
bathing suits made in short tunic
effect over full bloomers to the knee.
These suits, though a bit startling until
one becomes used to the style, are real
ly practical and quite modest more
modest than last season's short, scant
little skirt of clinging satin worn over
silk tights. The French woman, how
ever wears her bathing costume coyly.

lO ACCOUNT of salt water seems to
have been taken in the building
oft this season's bathing suits.
' They might be designed for tea on the
veranda or at the dansant, so far as
material goes. Only the coquettish cut
designates them as frocks that will
venture into the billows, or the ripples
of. ocean or bay, and one has more than
a suspicion that many of these charm
ing costumes will never," never know
wjjat it is to get wet. Fortunately for
the woman who likes to look pretty
more than- she likes to have a good
time it is not considered quite the proper
thing to take a sun bask on the sand
instead of a sea bath in unpleasantly
wet watei- if one so prefers. For the
baskers there are irresistibly fetching
costumes that include every dainty ac-
its practical features as a swimming
garment may be. . Every additional
ounce of wet fabric Is a burden to the
real swimmer and it is. to be presumed
that 10 yards of ruffling dragged
down by the weight of water will not
add to the zest of sport in the water;
but the ruffled suits are adorable on
the beach no doubt of that. Most of
them are fashioned of pussy willow
taffeta and this year "black Is at a dis
count in bathing costumes. If a black
suit is worn at all it is made gay with
trimming of white or Roman striped
silk. Sometimes Scotch plaid silks are
combined with plain, dark taffetas in
Prettiest of all the bathing suits,
perhaps, are those ot dark taffeta with
scalloped edges outlined with white
woman of the better class would dream
of Dosing on the sand or of racing and
walking about the beach after the bath,
clad in her swimming suit. The Amer
ican girl, on the other hand, would
consider almost any old thing good
enough to wear Into the water if there
were no fun on the sand afterward.
Several well-known society women
of unauestloned good taste made the
tunic bloomer bathing suit the fashion
at .Palm Beach last Winter and its fa
vor is assured for. this Summer. The
prettiest models are of salt water satin
or fine mohair, the tunic falling well
cessory from a parasol and vanity bag piping. A dark blue pussy willow taf-
to a corsage flower: and all that dif
ferentiates these enchanting frocks
from other frocks is their length or
rather their lack of length.
Some of the new bathing dresses have
skirts barely touching the knee; oth
ers have tunics falling midway between
waist and knee. No really modish new
bathing suit has yet exhibited a skirt
covering the knee, though often the
frill of a bathing pantaloon shows be
low the abbreviated skirt. Indeed,
bathing bloomers are fashionable this
year. Nobody thinks of hiding them,
and the more they show the smarter the
suit. Tights have completely gone out
of fashion as far as the beach is cpn
cerned. though woven swimming tights
or jerseys are worn by many women
beneath the suit These garments come
in cotton, wool and a mixture of silk
and wool, the last named being nat
tirally the moBt expensive. They may
be had in full length, that Is with
stockings attached, or in knee length.
In this case silk stockings and garters
must be worn. Nobody dreams of go
ing in bathing now with any stockings
but silk ones.
- The Summer girl would far prefer to
wear cotton or lisle hose with her
afternoon frocks in order to have silk
stockings for her bathing suit. If such
economy were necessary. Silk bathing
stockings are not really an extrava
gance, for as canvas beach shoes are
worn the stockings will not wear out
In the feet The only thing that is
imperative is to keep the bathing
stockings free of "runs" or "Jacob's
ladders." caused by garters. A darned
stocking is not pretty with a short
bathing skirt, and the frugal woman
weara her brand-new silk stockings
with her bathing suit, and uses them
with ordinary long skirted costumes
after darning at the top becomes neces
sary. The new ruffled bathing suit is the
prettiest thing- imaginable whatever
feta suit of this' sort has three ruffles
on the skirt, all scalloped and piped
with white, and the sleeves are fin
ished to match. The sash Is of white
taffeta. Another suit of black taffeta
is scalloped and piped with American
Beauty color, and in the corsage Is an
American Beauty Rose made, if you
please, of colored rubber. Still another
ruffled bathing dress Is of gray and
black striped pussy willow taffeta with
a white taffeta collar and turned back
cuffs. The sash Is. of white taffeta
with weighted ends and a cluster of
rubber violets is tacked against the
or more if a "sharp" dressing is wanted.
Plain or flavored vinegar may be used.
The whipped white - of an egg or
little whipped cream may be added if
milder "fluffy" dressing is desired.
