Well-Equipped Kitchens
'--. A blue Dutchy kitchen, with geraniums on the window sill and
i blue checked gingham curtains .has long been the Tague dream of
, many a little bride-to-be, and then someone comes along and tells
I her to make her kitchen "white and sanitary" and she regretfully
H drops the dream of her viYid-color workshop. j
As a matter of fact, there is
something reminiscent of hospital
wards in an all-white kitchen, and
it certainly is apt to be a glaring
and depressing place to work.
I Some years ago kitchens were
' drab and dingy, with flaring gas
J jets and wooden cupboard doors,
behind which the utensils were
j packed. ' ;.. ; r ' i ' 5 i '
i But gone are the days when it
? was the ugliest room in the house
In the maldless menage it is the
Important workroom, where moth
. er spends much of her time, and
she may hare it. as gay and attrac-
tire a place as she desires.
Of course, efficiency must hare
j first place, ; but it can be success
fully camouflaged with charm and
color; there is the combination of
misty gray walls and deep lilac
r floor, furniture i painted gray
green and gaily flowered cretone
r curtains to add a brighter note.
Blue woodwork against iTory
walls, with ecru curtains flounced
In the same blue gires another at
tractive effect, and the floor in
I such a kitchen may be painted
black, and relieved by a TiTid
braided rug- After; all, black br
Ted - or green is just as easy to
keep clean as dead white or. oak,
so why not, If your fancy turns
that way? (

Clever French Find Way
To Beat Inheritance Taxes
PARIS, Sept. 25 (AP) A law
was passed In France recently
making the legal adoption of chil
dren relatively easy of accom
plishment, and the! new measure
fs resulting! In loss of revenue to
the government.
Inheritance taxes In France are
heavy. On a fortune of 1.000,000
francs a. nephew who inherits
must pay 400.000 francs to the
state, a grand-nephew 441,000
francs, an unrelated inheritor
482,000 francs, but a child pays
only 123.000 francs
,y Adopted children! rank as real
children, so it has become the
habit of testators to adopt distant
relatives and friends to whom
they desire to leave money.
, Floors which are painted
brightly may be shellacked, or
they may be covered with lino
leum, or with tiling in bright
two-toned contrast. Cetnent floors
make for durability, undoubtedly,
and when they are done in tile
effect, with contrasting colors,
they present an odd and charm
ing appearance.' Woven, braid
ed or other rugs which may be
laundered are good to look, and
comfortable under foot, while the
same rule applies to curtain, the
only other curtain rule being sim
plicity, i j'
Ginghams, figured voiles, mus
lin, -linen, cretone and novelty
materials are j ail usable in the
kitchen curtains, which may be
hung on rings, which allow them
to swing easily.'
Why not small panes of glass
in your cupboard with its bright
china? They j make for a much
more decorative wall, and are eas
ily kept clean j and closed when
necessary. So, too, may the Jars
and canisters for spices and sea
soning be chosen for their beauty
as well as utility, and they will
add -to the looks as they wait in
a row on your shelf. j

an outlay for new kitchen things,

the use of bright paint will trans
form the cans and jars into things
of beauty, and bring light and

There; should be a shelf for the
