Crushed Bone Is Good Fertilizer By Cecil Solly WHEN they planted a vine in the old days they first burled a dead sheep in the site or was it a goat? Nowadays we use artificial manure. Among the best for such a purpose Is that old-fashioned fertilizer known as crushed bones. Crushed bone can be obtained In quarter-inch and half - Inch sizes. They decay slowly, but, for this reason chiefly, are excellent to use when the soil Is being prepared for all kinds of trees. Dig out the soil, scatter one or two pounds at least on the heap of soil, and use it round the tree that is being planted. It is generally Inadvisable to use any other kind of fertilizer. The bones provide a continuous supply of foods for the ' trees. THESE fashion hints are for the purpose of aiding the woman who is sincerely interested in her personal appearance. Authenticity is the keynote of all suggestions made, and If followed weekly each woman will derive true knowledge, enabling her to dress well according to her own particular type. All women who are Interested In being smartly dressed will first make a careful study of their build, and second, of their coloring. In this way they will be enabled to make tho most of their good points and will divert attention from their less flattering qualities. If the woman is Inclined toward heaviness, Intelligent use of lines will do much to create the illusion of a slender figure. This use of line holds true for the face as well as the figure. As one advances in years, dignity of appearance becomes an outstanding source of pleasure. Not only is this true of the individual concerned, but also of her daily social contacts. Maturity contributes a great wealth of charm in its gift of silver-gray hair. Scrupulously groomed gray hair softens the lines of the face and adds much to the general appearance of the matron. The woman who is thin may call to her aid the magic worked by the use of certain colors. By avoiding tones which are harsh or Intense and confining herself1 to the soft colors, she will give the appearance of having a more plump, curved figure. She should always refrain from black, due to the slenderizing effect It tends to produce. Softly curving and caressing garments rather than the stiffly tailored styles are the most flattering for the mature, motherly woman. She is a consistent, unchanging type in the realm of women's dress. On many occasions the use of colors will go infinitely further than the spoken word in the attainment of the desired effect. Generally speaking, the light colors are attributed as being the possessions of youth. Bequeathed to maturity are the dark tones and deeper rich tones. , Primary colors red, yellow, blue.

Add an appliance closet to the kitchen. There all the smaller mechanical equipment mixers, toasters, waffle Irons, etc. may be placed on shelves designed to accommodate them. On the door, place a row of hooks and paste white labels above each one. The electric cords which fit each appliance may be hung there and the name of the appliance placed above it. This will prevent cords from becoming tangled, and they . will be easy to locate. Paint the interior of the closet a color which contrasts with the main kitchen wall color.

The ginger cookie smell! If ever I sigh for the good old days, it's when memory pulls me back to the times when it wasn't any harm to munch, after school, on a great sugar-crusted cookie. Surprising how much energy as well as goodness la wrapped up in their luBcious sides. Surprising too, what a trusty friend the cookie Jar is. Drop cookies are perhaps the easiest to make, unless we take much the same sort of batter and spread it in shallow pan, to bake as cake, cut In squares or diamonds when cool. And I of course, there's the roll you stow away in the re- , frlgerator and .slice to bake when you need them ; and the little cakes you drop in muffin tins ... is there Virginia Ro anything difficult about any of these? - -' Cookie sheets or pans with very low edges produce the best results. It's bettor to bake one sheet at a time, having the other ready to slip in when tho one is rcmovod from the oven. Othorwise they'll have to be shifted upstairs and down, and tho baking results aren't so good as they should be. Don't bo continually looking at them, for you lose oven heat In that way. And don't use your enamel broiler pan, or .that relic from your grandmother's kitchen, the enamel pan, or your cookies will bo of the black bottom variety. Always allow cookies to cool before storing them away, and do let them cool on a rack, even if you use the one from your broiler pan. If you'ro out for crisp cooktcB, keep them so by storing In a tight tin box, lined with waxed paper. If you're making drop cookies, tuck them Into a porcelain or stone Jar, with maybe an apple to add moisture. Temperatures aro most important. In general, they go like this: Drop cookies, 400 degrees, 10 to 12 minutes. Macaroon type, 325 degrees, IB to 20 minutes. Rolled and cut, 42S degrees, 8 to 10 minutes. Sliced (refrigerator), 428 degrees, 8 to 10 minutes, or 4S0 degrees, S to 8 minutes. Cake-cookies, 350 degrees, 20 to 30 minutes, baked in sheet and cut Gingerbread men, 375 degrees. 10 to 12 minutes. And hero aro your cookie patterns: BAMBOO'S OATMEAL COOKIES These arc crispy Instead of the usual soft-middles. Croam together: cup shortening 1 cup sugar.
