Nsver had I thought tier mora exquisite than tha morning when she earns to ask about Mother Lorimer and Bob. Her blonde loveliness is so delicate and her manner so feminine that it Is only after I hava talked with her a while that I errar remember that she Is about the cleverest young womaa In our town. In that connection I recall Daddy Xorimer's joking prediction that a For-tia with hair of spun fold ought to win all ber essea I "Martha's blondnest makes her Intel, jlect all the mora astounding," com-itnentad Bob months ago, to which I replied, naturally and spitefully, remembering Katharine's yellow halri "Friend husband, you ought to ba well posted on the relation of brains to tresses!" ! Bob has always been very fond of (Martha, in spit of the fact that she Is lawyer with mors clients than aha can easily look after Few of our men friemla really tars to talk to a highly educated girl.

Colonel Meng, has recently sailed for her new home In the Talmyra Islands, on which she will be the firHt white woman to set foot. It will be remembered that last spring Mrs. Dickson and her little son, Brcle, and her niece. Miss Idelle Singletary, went to Hawaii for a tay of several months. By rare good fortune they were able to secure quarters in ' Amahau," one o-the It was the homo of the late Princess aiea in Ban f ranclsco in 1891 and when nine days later his sister. Laliuo kalanl, was proclaimed his successor, niece, was appointed heir apparent. The famous house, Ainahau, Is situated In gardens so wonderful that even In Honolulu" they are considered one of the eights travelers are for tunate to see-. And the most wonderful thing In these wonderful gardens is "Kaiulani's Banyan" trree, famous all through Hawaii. Under this tree Robert Louis Stevenson sat to write, and. rtere on the twenty-first of June Miss Singletary was married to Army, a hero of the world war, with Colonel Meng ha4 many Interests to the states just after the wedding. me t'aimyra leianos, which he has the Honolulu Btar Bulletin of October 2 devotes a whole page to the romantic history of these islands, real and legendary, and the fact that Colonel Meng Intends to develop them "All the thrills and exaltation of Mrs. William Meng. who, with her husband.

Palmyra Island is 1,000 miles south of Honolulu and Fanning Island is 90 miles away from Palmyra. Mrs. Mens: has been Mrs. Dickson's guest in Shraveport many times, and her friends are waiting with great interest her letters telling her experiences, but it is thought that it will be at least January before a letter can start oacK to Honolulu.

Can a husband and a wife shsr dif ferent Interests In the business world without disturbing th equilibrium of their home? That la doubtless the big gest mating problem r this or any other age, and w girl all wan tad to te haw Martha and Ewart would soivo It. Martha's son arrived to further com plicate her married llf.

The young ladies will do the cheeking. Last week was s red-letter week for Shreveport. It included the coming of Judge Kelley at the church overwork-but-true in this instance-phrase, psychological moment, whose being with us means we are going to do so much good. ' But it also broueht the nnenin? of the new "Pines," which was of greater importance, as it is not only the promise of future help, but stands for gfii already done and, more than all, it is proof beyond all question of the faith, and work, and love of humanity, of a woman. Against all discourage- menta Mra. Meyer Benson haa kept a firm hold on her belief that for us it will be possible to bring back to perfect health those touched by the white plague; and on Saturday afternoon, December 4, the perfect sanitarium, for which many have given and worked through the inspiration of her untiring efforts, was filled during the reception hours by several hundred admiring peop'e. All the while as I went about my mind was full of Longfellow's little poem of Florence Nightingale, going through the wards at night holding a lamp above her head and the sufferers turning their heads to kiss her shadow as it passed, and this beautiful building seemed to me the lamp Mrs. Benson has held up: "A lady with a Lamp shall stand In the gTeat history of the land A noble type of good, Heroic womanhood." I said something like this to Mrs. John McCullough who replied, "Of course Mrs. Benson hat done a wonderful work, but much of the credit of this should go to Mr. Benson, for if be had not been in sympathy, willing to an unusual degree to share, she never could have accomplished what she has, And that's true, too. Mrs. Raph Kahn, the chairman of the house committee, secured the fur nishings, which are not yet all in place, but are most attractive and will be complete for every Heed. On ihe sec ond floor beside each bed is a steamer chair, and the beds themselves are the most comfortable that could be bought. The entrance hall of the ground floor is furnished in mahogany, with cush ioned chairs, and long table with mirror over it and it the gift of Mr. and Mrs. E. K. Smith. Opening from it on the left is the perfectly appointed office, the gift of Mrs. Henry Knders. On the Tight ia the reception room where the mahogany and cane-inset furniture, the rose rug and window hangings are the gift of Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Richardson and Misses Dorothy and Miriam Richardson. The staff dining room, with pale green walls, bright chinti hangings, white furniture, which includes a window flower stand filled with growing fern8, was given by Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Hicks.

Frost ai d the equally perfect dental room equipment was given by Mr. and Mrs. S. H. liuiir.jrer. And, oh, the kitchen! if there was a woman who went through that perfectly equipped kitchen without envying something, tho was a super-woman, anti personally 1 would be iike the man at the c.reus who looked at the g.raffe and turned away remarking, "There ain't no such animal." One evening lest week I saw ruch a beautiful li'.tie g:rl suffering horribly bettute a smull boy had shot her in the eye with a cap pistol. Of ciurse she will loi l er beauty and probably her sight ii it eye, but it wasn't the small boy v.'ai to blame. lie was only folio fmu'l boy nature and showing on nd tome one gave him the cap pistvt. Every year must take it's own toll. Never before, they say, have people done their Christmas shopping so early, and never before have the merchants put out their real y iittractive things so eariy. So many ot us who have shopped early, have jjt before Christmas found tn shops filled with so much more attractive eiock. This year the. tilings displayed do certainly look gil'ty. Mra. D. B. Vance told me something I thouglit so interesting about two of the songs she is going to sing at the firu of the scries of nrjsicales Mrs. George O. Baird is giving this winter. Mrt. Vance and Creighton Allen wi i give tho program, and one of the songs, Mr. Allen has written and dedicated to Mrs. Vance, and the other ia one for which he wrote the music when he was thirteen years olei. If you are planning to send fudge in your Christmas packages you may be interested in the way of one of the successful candy makers. She used the flat tin boxes tne tittle wafer cakes come in and she pours the fudge in and then cuts it into squares. 'Carlyle says "The true university of these days is a collection of bocks," and books do make ideal Christmas presents when they are given with due consideration. In these days people are careful that children have a well balanced diet, watch their stomachs, their teeth, their feet, their eyes and their adenoids', and although they know that the little minds are the busiest parts of the bodies they forget to think about them in connection with what the child reads, and one hears a conversation about like this, "I want a nice book for my little boy. I really haven't anything in mind but er, something that costs about a dollar." When there are so many wonderful books to give! I think it was Kate Douglas Wiggin, though it may have been Amy Lowell, who said "Beware of the stories written down to children by people who never could write up to children." Christmas would never be Christmas without books and dolls, and this year there seem in the shops more of the pretty jdoiis like those we had "before the war." The business and professional woman's club, as the first step towards their club house is to have a doll sale. Miss Lynn was telling me the other day of a beauty all dressed m pink. 1 think it .bogene field had been writing nowadays he would have written, "Just any old color, just so's it's pink, is the Color that pleases me best."' But writing of dolls reminds me that at the Seven Ages of Woman bazar only dolls sold the dolls. Did you notice it? In these days when the stores are full of Santa Claus fixings buy a few of the smallest of the littie sleigh bells and fasten one securely on the neck of every bottle of poison, and then even In the dark you will not take up the bottle without knowing it is not what you want. Miss Anna Maher told me so interestingly the other day about the Pan-Hellenic Association that has just been organized here. Of course, they have no definite plans yet, but a group of womefi who have given four years to college work are certain, by banding together, to do something well worthwhile. In the Herndon svenue neighborhood d?ar little Billy Holmes is being sadly missed. He was the friendliest little sixteen-montha-old chap and having been indoors only two days, had passed away before many of his friends knew he was really sick. He dearly loved flowers and those tent for the little AND IIBR UTILE SUN, JOUN An Addition To Younger Set r t s "--i4 : -' ' ,i i , -r f .

Are you a spug? It sounds like a bad potato, but it isn't. It is a society formed some years ago by a group of people who considered it a ahame-ful waste to give useless and worthless gifts on Christmas and other occasions. S-P-U-G stands for "Society for the Prevention of Useless Giving." If you have not become a spug yourself, at least try to b influenced by the principles they stand for. Think twice before you select a gift. Erneste Reams had such a delightful little visit in Houston. He said t.hfl Shrevenort neorle there, estieciallv the Kincaids, the Hurlburts and the Dentons were so nice to him, dinners and drivos and every attention that he could accept, for of course his programs had to be given on time. He said the beautiful new organ was the talk of the city, and that one old fel low was so pleased with his playing that he brought him a cream cheese pie. Mr. Reams says Houston is a beautiful city, and to him the loveliest spot in it is Christ church and the rectory, "perhaps because my sweet heart married there." Can you beat it as we all say, though few of us write. . The other day the mail brought to me this little poem., w nether it is pertinent or impertinent "is tho spirit in which you take tt: When every pool of Eden was a mirror That unto tve her dainty charms pro claimed She went undraped without a single fear or Thought that she had need to be ashamed.

Immediately after the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Snow left for Daliat and upon their return will be at home with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. 3. H. Van Hoose. The wedding Is the culmination of a romance begun during the World War, when the bride was a school girl and Mr. Snow was located hero with the 156th Regiment. As soon as he was discharged after his return from France, Mr. Snow came back to Shreveport to see the little girl with wh om he had corresponded, and here he has remained. The wedding is of much Interest in Mississippi, where tha family of the groom are well-known and in Louisiana, as the bride is of the two oldest and most prominent families "of the state. On Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock in the parlors of the First Methodist Church, Mrs. Avs Armistead Lester, of Coushatta, was united in marriage to Mr. E. V, Lester of Lewisville, Ark., Bev. Mr. Pheus, officiating. There were present the bride's broth er and sister, Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Lester, ber son, Roy T. Lester, and Messrs.

Th living room was in daisy and chrysanthemums, while in the dining room, from which the bride snd rroom entered, were vases filled with premier roses and ferns. The bride wat modishly attired In a suit of brown velour with hat, gloves and shoes in harmony. Her flowers wer a corsag of sweet peas with lilies of the valley. Before leaving the bride presented her bosquet to on cf her friends, Mist Loit Mills. Immediately after th ceremony, Mr. and Mrt.
