"Why," asked Snooky of Larry, "did

were a perfect gentleman?
"Some people might not like that."
"There are some people," said Larry,
"who -don't like anything or anyone
"Oh well," said Edith Francis, "you
mustn't mind if everyone doesn't like
you, Larry. You're so sensitive!
You're so easily hurt
"That is your feelings are you cer
tainly can fall about and not hurt
"That tail of yours Is a great help. '
"Ah no," said Snooky, "think of It
as you will, there are people who don't
like us, and do you know why?"

Inexpensive ' Improvements Made In Kitchen.
(Prepared by 'the United States
In connection with kitchen Improve
ment work in Massachusetts, en
couraged by the county home demon
stration agents, Mrs: DeVoe of Wor
cester county, installed a combina
tion sink and washtub so that it was
possible to take advantage of the
good light from two high windows.
An extension of the drainboard, which
was also the cover of the washtub,
made extra counter surface and also
provided a convenient place for stor
ing the washing machine beneath.
Closets for cleaning supplies and
cooking utensils were built to fit the
spaces below the sink and tub, which
were placed at the best working
height for Mrs. DeVoe. Under the
counter at the right of the sink draw

sugar. Turn tbe cake- out n this,
upside down, and trim off the crusty
edges on the sides. Spread quickly
with Jelly or preserves, and begin
rolling at the side nearest you. When
the cake Is roiled up, roll the paper
around it and tie it in place so the
jelly roll will keep Its shape.

Novelty Weaves for Girls
By JULIA BOTTOMLEY
It's the fabric which makes the
schoolgirl's coat this season! Mean
ing that Interest centers about the
novelty woolens of which Junior mod
els are fashioned rather .. than the
manner of their styling. A coat may
have the simplest sort of treatment
with a straightline silhouette, be ab
solutely void of trimming and yet if
it be made of some one or other of
the modern intriguing worsteds which
are so handsomely colorful and le
signful It carries assurance of last
minute modishness. .
Importance is especially attached to
swagger coatings for schoolgirl sports
coats. It Is only necessary to utter
the magic word "tweed" In the pres
ence of a salesperson In the Junior
coat section, to have brought forth an
array of arresting models, which glory
in the novelty of the weaves em
ployed In their making.
One of their newest themes is plain
tweed with an Intricate worked de
sign which Is used for the scarf, cuffs,
pockets and collar, the body of the
coat being unpatterned.
Tweeds with diagonal effects are
among the newest. So are loose fan
cy basket weaves. Clecks also are
much In evidence. Modernistic de
signs make direct appeal to those
seeking effects which are strikingly
different. Among latest cloakingsr are
those which ase new among the new
estrayon and wool weaves. The
rayon injects a glistening .silky pat
terning which, is out of th ordinary
and certainly very attractive.
The models In this picture are typ
ical of the vogue which stresses coats
of novelty cloth which are simply
styled. The - one to the left has a

I SHOULDER I
(Prepared by the United States Department
Shoulder of lainb has long been con
sidered a choice cut by discerning pal
ates. The meat Is exceptionally ten
der and delicate In flavor, but the
shoulder blade running through the
center mokes It Impossible to carve
Into attractive slices. Skillful butch
ers and clever cooks have now found
a way around this difficulty, soys the
bureau of home economics of the Unit
ed States Department of Agriculture.
The shoulder blade and leg bone can
easily be removed, leaving on excel
lent pocket for savory stuffing. The
stuffed shoulder may then be rolled up
or left flut like a pillow. In either
case it Is sewed together around the
edges and roasted in an open pan. The
tasty stuffing helps to conserve the
Juices of the meat and to add season
ing. Carving difficulties are thus over
come. The boned stuffed shoulder can
be carved straight through Into shape
ly slices of Just the right blend of
meat and stuffing.
Lamb leg and saddle may also be
boned, stuffed, and roasted In this
same way to make carving easier.
For slicing cold these stuffed cuts are
delicious, especially if the stuffing has
been seasoned with fresh mint or wa
tercress. The United States Depart

machine often makes It possible for

types of "runs" perfectly but If the
