Report on Sewerage System
Interesting Description of work

REPORT DN  COST OF  SB.WKR
CONSTRUCTION
At your request we hep to Bubmtt
the following report on the cost of
construction of the Hewer System
and Sewer Disposal Works. The
figures nre tnken us at June. 30th
last, (with approximate nllownnce on
the sewers to date), this being the
lust date nt which accounts Imve been
made up.
l.-SF-WBRS
The total amount expended upon
construction of sewers, and mnnholes
etc.. at June 30th ir-us, Including engineering $74,488.35; since then an
additional (1,347.4.1 has heen spent,
leaving nn estimated amount of $880
still to spend on manholes already in
hand and mnking the total cost of
sewers authorized to date $76,715.80.
There still remains ol the original
scheme, 7418 feet of sewers to be com
pleted, as detailed in our estimate of
July 6th.
The cost of constructing these
Sewers,   (after  deducting  sewer  now
Miss Annie Wise leads in Rep'y to p._De vere Hunt
Contest at end of First Period
constructed on li. Hanson) is estimated in this report, on rates based sand in Bdwards Street
upon the actual constructional cost,
at $9,609.60, making a total estimated cost of completing the original
scheme of $86,325.40
From this amount there should be
deducted certain items not included
In the original estimate, as follows:-
Flection   Expenses    $129.60
Deviation of route In South
Baker Street
Baker   Lane  864.00
Additional expense due to lay
ing this sewer in winter... 1.782.00
Losses incidental to strike  ... 216.80
t was partially relieved by turning
t into the sower, and coBt about
$600.00 additional.
(2). The next largest item in the
overcoat amounting to nbout $2500.on
is due to the unusually coarse nature
of the excavation, long sections of
thetrenches having been in large
loose boulders, requiring close sheeting, at the same time making the
sheeting harder to drive. It was necessary on this account to pack the
pipes carefully with fine soil to protect them from breakage by stoneB,
hut in many cases there was not suftl
cient fine material tn be found among
the stones, without careful separation, or even hauling it in, thereby
increasing the cost. Backfilling on
these sections was also made slower
and more expensive than usual, it being Impossible to draw the timber
freely without large oaves occuring,
which would have endangered the sewer, and increased the cost still more
Some difficulty on account of coarse
material in the trenches was also allowed for in tbe estimate, but proved
worse than was anticipated.
(3). The balance of overcost on the
Sewers is made up of various smaller
items, such as rock cutting in Burwell Lane, etc., a stretch of running        _

The Prospector's $2,000 Circulation
campaign promises to break nil re-
curdB for enthusiasm and circulation
increase.
The first period came to an end on
Wednesday night. Subscription orders came in a veritable avalanche,
so anxious were the wise contestants
to secure the maximum first period
votes.
MISS WISH IN THK LEAD
Miss Annie Wise is today, receiving
the congratulations of her many
friends and supporters who helped
her on to the top position in the contest. Miss Wise entered the contest
less than ten days ago and the work
she has accomplished in the short
time is more than gratifying to her-
second period schedule provided for
twenty per cent less votes thnn the
first period schedule, and nearly all
of them turned in their business on
Wednesday.
The standing of the candidates published today is replete with BurpriBeS.
Several of the active workers who
were not considered dangerous a week
trouble
to u leaky water main in Pooley Ave
and other similar matters which were
not specially anticipated.
Special care has been taken, through
out to secure watertight joints in the
sewers, it will he readily understood
that, with a large part of the system
lying in water, leaky joints would endanger the efficiency ot the system,
und if the amount of leakage into the
pipes was large, the carrying capacity of the system might be so reduced as to be inadequate to take the
sewerage of the city.
If less care had been taken in this
$2992.40
inal positions.
It is a safe assumption that none
of the candidates who are in the contest are holding back subscriptions at
this time. There was some "holding
back" previous to Wednesday, but
any subscriptions carried over that
date will earn twenty per cent less
votes. It it plain, then, tbat all the
business secured hy the contestants
was turned in on Wednesday.
SUCCESS  OF THE  CAMPAIGN
The  Prospector  is  highly  gratified
direction,   some   little  money  might!with the results which have attended
have been saved, but only at the risk jthe contest up to the present time.
Deducting this from $86,325.40
leaves $83,333.00 as the net total cost
to construct the scheme as intended.
The original estimate for this work
was $75,036.00, leaving a deficit ol
$8297.00.
This represents the net extra coBt
of the sewer system over the original
estimate, and is to be accounted for
by the following items, as already in
dlcated in our report of July 6th.
(I). By far the larger part of the
extra cost Is due to the excessive
amount of wnter encountered along
the Hue of the Main Outfall Sewer
throughout the ('ity, and also on
some of the branches and bus occurred on the more recently constructed
sections.
lt was found quite impossible to
handle this water with the ubuuI
trench pumps, A centrifugal pump
Installed in addition to the trench
pump wus only attenuate to keep thc
water down sufficiently, when at the
same time allowing a large portion
of the subsoil water to escape by way
of the outfall sewer already laid.
Besides the actual cost ol the ad
dttiniial pumping, the extra difficulty
ln excavating, and laying the pipes,
with a heavy stream of water running along the bottom ol the ditch
haa also to he taken into account.
Our records show thnt the extra cost
under this head amounts in round fl
guilts to $4,600.00, or more than half
of the total excess.
The original estimate included a
higher allowance for pumping than
usual, as a considerable amount of
water was foreseon, but the results
hnve been altogether beyond what the
appearance of the ground would ludi
cate.
At one of the wettest parts It wus
found necessary to lay about MOD ft
ot the Main Outfall Sewer on timber
and cradles1 In order to obtain joints,
This was done before the flow of wat
of an inferior job, which would certainly have been false economy.
2.   DISPOSAL  WORKS
The amount spent upon the Disposal Works at June 80th, was $12,807.77
exclusive of engineering, leaving $4192 go into details. The votes to the
23 in hand at that date to complete credit of the different candidates

of the contest as has come to hand

have every reason to rejoice with her
on the night of August 17. Miss Wise
is well known in Cranbrook and district and promises to be oue of the
strongest contenders for the cap tal
prize.

Master Robert pye is also in the

splendid work and don't he a bit surprised If he takes the Capital prize

Mrs. John Wolf of Fort Steele, has I
also achieved big results.    Mrs. Wolf

This statement  was  made famous by

Several candidates received votes
during the lust week from subscribers
who paid for their subscriptions at
the contest office. When a subscriber

other contestants who remain to be

The votes turned in on this prize will

Ro CRANBROOK SEWERAGE DEBENTURES.
In u letter to the Herald, re the
sale of the Sewerage Debentures, Mr.
Hunt expresses his regret that a recent statement of Mayor Bowness has
been   made.
It might therefore he well to explain why that statement was made,
and briefly it is this; "Several members of the Council learned that Mr.
remarks, the Council expressed au
Opinion that the oiler should he accepted, und even then Mr. Hunt
would not sell.
It is true that no resolution was*
passed, lur the simple reason that
the Council had no authority ua a
body, and that, a resolution of that
kind would have heen out of order.
The matter was, at an earlier date,
brought before the attention of the
Finance Committee by the City
Clerk, wbo requested them to approach the  Mayor.

When the Ostrich Hurries.
Two feet is the usual stride of an
ostrich when it walks, but when the
bird Is alarmed and commences to
run it exchanges its mincing slride
for fourteen foot steps, which easily
carries it over the ground at a rate
of twenty-five miles an hour. Ordinarily an ostrich makes no effort to
profit by its length of lege, and many
birds with legs less than a quarter
an long habitually use a three and
four foot stride, for it seems to he
one of the rules of nature that birds
like ostriches, flamingoes and cranes
extend their stride only when alarm*
ed. The ostrich when* it runs takes
both feet . ff the ground at every
slride, its progress being made by
means of a series of jumps m> rapidly
performed as to leave llie observer
under the impression that one foot
remains on the ground until the other is placed.

lariy   so   have   been   those   who    have
established themselves in tho I 'ran
brook District during the past fow
years, and have been offered (ron two
to ten times whal Ihey paid for their
holdings.
During the past two years Cran
hrook District, hns received the attention of agriculturists and investors, and today tills district is being
rapidly developed intn tin* richest
agricultural section of (he province,
particularly adapted to the growing
of fruit and the 11 lies I varieties of
garden vegetables, as woll as the
commoner kinds of Held crops.
Its climate is delightful, rarely
ranging over '.HI in Die summer, while
the winter tem pern tare seldom re
cords lower than 10 below zero,
though the extreme is 20 degrees below. The snowfall is sufficient dur
lag the winter to protect and give
warmth to the land  at all  times.
The rainfall is sufficient at all
tlineB during the spring and summer,
though the high bench lauds  may  at
at least IU miles, being also respon-
Bible for the cost of the work and
the resultant damage to public or
private property. The foregoing is
embodied In an order issued by
LTive Lenvott, chief tire inspector for
the hoard of railway commissioners
effective on the Canadian Pacific line
.Inly 5, and on the Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern Lues.
.July ir,.
The railways are ordered to patrol
tho tire districts regularly, going over the road from two to four times
daily, the men being employed -by
i be companies. The department of
the Interior has unpointed an inspector, whoso duties it is to see that
the work is carried on properly. Velocipedes will be used in the northern districts of the province, the tire
rangers going over their patrols HO
minutes after the passing of each
tram. A hundred men will lie re
quired  to do the work.
The companies have also been advised to instruct passengers to assist in the work of minimizing the
danger from forest tires hy refraining
from throwing lighted cigars or cigarettes from trains.

:. very interesting.little book profuse'ity  twenty-live  yeaiB   ago.     Modern
with Illustrations depicting some of
the work of tbe Canadian Highway
Association since its inauguration on
November 3rd, 1911. This contains
a mass of useful information concerning roads nnd road conditions in
different parts of ('amida but more
especially in British Columbia.
Photogravures of tbe President W.
J. Kerr and others add a sort of personal touch with the work as they
ire nil well known men in public life
and especially with the International
highway.
We Rive in full tbe President's
speech as delivered at the gathering
which took place to celebrate the
planting of the tlrst post at Alberni
on May 4th, of this yenr.
THK  lMlKSlDKNTS   SPEKCH
President Kerr, who received a mag
niflcent ovation, delivered the following inspiring address:
"Ladies and (Jentlemen: The ceremony that has gathered us here is one
gethered us here together is one
which will long be remembered in tbe
annals of Canadian road-building. I
-iee facing me a number of the more
prominent ttgures of British Oolumbla
and not a few of the best known
rond enthusiasts of the state of Wash
Ing ton, our neighbors'.
'■■The planting of this post, tlic tlrst
of many hundreds that will mark the
route of this highway from this spot
to the city of Halifax, on the shores
of the Atlantic, Ih an event too im
poi-tniit to lie lightly thought of. The
building of this trans continental
highway is a serious undertaking, one
that calls (or energy, enterprise and
concentration. We cannot aflord to
be Idle in this work. The needs of
Canada demand that this road be
built as soon as possible The people
everywhere are calling for it. The
traveller, the tourist and the farmer,
all insist that this road is an absolute necessity.
The planting of this post on the
west coast of Vancouver Island Is a
llttlng tribute to the spirit of the
Wost. This Is it mighty undertaking,
and the men of the west are the men
who do big things. When we consider
tbat this spot on which we now stand
was unknown to the white man until
about a hundred years ago, and that
it. Is only fifty years since this canal
was thoroughly explored, we can real
l'/e tbe great strides that are being
made In these days.    This is within
machinery and up-to-date transportation facilities will make this undertaking feasible.
"As with the building of a new
railwny, so with the starting of this
Canadian Hfghway, wc have decided
that the first actual step should be
marked with fitting ceremony, and in
this we have received splendid assistance from the town of Nannimo, Al-
herni and Port Albernil our hosts on
this occasion.
"From now on the route of the
Canadian Highway is eastward, with
Halifax as its destination. British
Columbia has nobly done its share,
thanks to the untiring energv of our
Minister of Public Works, Mr. Taylor
and his able deputy, Mr. Foster.
Over $5,000,000 \n being spent on rond
and bridges in this province this year
and could we hut procure the active
co-operation of all the other province
in Canada our task would be simplified, and our object realized within
three years.
"The province of Saskatchewan has
decided to spend 12,500,000 on roads
this year, and a total appropriation
of $r>,nna,000 hns been made for the
roads of that province. This Is to
he spent within the next two or threo
years. In Manitoba, only $200,0000
has been alotted for road building.
Tbls sum is, in my opinion, inadequate to the needs of that province,
for my recollections- ol Manitoba are
anything but pleasant, and f know
of some roads where this total a
mount could be expended and yet
leave that particular road in an unfinished condition. Ontario is waking
up to the need of good roads; this Is
largely owing to the activities of
Provincial Commissioner of Highways Mac Lean, who has $6,000,-
000 to spend on bis wock this
yeftr. In Quebec, we find that old I •[
province giving $10,000,000 for rond
work, and 1 think I am safe in saying that there Is more interest in
good roads In that province than in
any other In Onnndn today.
It Is not my intention, for I prefer
leaving this to some more fluent
speaker, to touch upon tbe natural

In these day? of elections ami rumors ol elections it is interesting to
glance buck to the time when there
wasn't so much eloction machinery in
Canada. For instance, on March 'JO,
]g62. The Victoria Colonist had the
following account oi the election proceedings h-- Ksquimalt:
At 12 o'clock yesterday the returning officer, Sheriff Naylor, proceeded
to the election of a member to represent the town oi KBquiinalt in the
assembly. There were about fifty persons present in front ol the Royal Oak
Hotol. After Uie usual preliminaries,
tho returning officer called upon tho
electors to nominate their candidates,
whereupon \V, Selllek, Esq., nominated Thomas Harris, Esq., ns a fit and
proper person to represent the town
of KaquimaH, F. Williams, Esq., ■•*?-
coiulcd tin* nomination with a fow np-
propria lo remarks. No other candidates being proposed, tho returning
ofllce rs declared Thomas Harris, Esq.,
duly elected h member o! the assembly, which announcement was received with cheers.
The member-elect then mounted the
platform and addressed the electors,
pledging himself to further the Interests of his constituents in particular,
and the colony in general, ll«' also aa-*
surcd tlm electors lhat whenever there
was any publlo Question raised, in
any way affecting their interests, lie
would call them together and tnko
tliolr views upon it in order to fully
represent them in the Legislature.
His remarks did not occupy in the
delivery more than ten minucs. but
were warmly received, ending In loud
cheers.

Benefits of Buttermilk
This much despised by-product
of the dairy seems to be. com-1
Ing to Its own, Ot late years
there hns sprung up lu cities
and towns, a big demand for buttermilk as a beverage, it can now be had
ul tlrst class hotels, Then many householders use buttermilk wheucver thoy
cuu get it.
So great has grow, n the demand
that tho supply is always below requirements. To meet ibis demand
producers are devising ways aud
means for Increasing the supply, True
as yet, the farmer has not realized
its true \ahie and tho supply of buttermilk on the average farm siill finds
its way to the hog trough, while people in towns and cities cannot get all
thej require.
The increased demand lias come
about largely because of recent scientific investigations which show butler-
milk to be of great value in keeping
the human system In good working
order. It is especially good for intestinal disorders.
A physician recently discovered In
the south cf Russia a people who lived almost entirely on a diet of buttermilk or a milk product having lho
same properties ns buttermilk. He
round also that these people lived to
a good old age. This led to further
Investigation' nnd the production of
artificial buttermilk.

historian, ami the tobacco was mixed

Mexicans compressed the nostrils with
the fingers anil inhaled the siuolte;
moreover, frequently they swallowed It.
Their pipes often were of silver.

In the form of human heads and iu

The North American Indian calumet, or pipe of peace, and the lotna-
hawk pipe, or pipe of war, are examples perhaps more lute" -.ting iu their
symbolic significance than in their peculiar formation. The former, having
a reed or wood stem, painted red, and
about two feel, and a half long, is decorated with feathers, aud has a bowl,
usually, of red soapstone; while the
latter doea duty both for pipe and
hatchet.
Towards the end pf the eighteenth
century, pipes of porcelain were made
al. Sevres, Chelsea, Dresden aud ottl-
er famous European porcelain manufactories; and porcelain pipes, though
of a common kind, and generally with
wooden stems, still are made in large
quantities in Germany, and principally for German use.
The famous meerschaum pipes,
made in auch large numbers in Austria, are quite distinct from these
pipes in prepared clay.

required to bring on the terrible
coughing spells and frantic gasping

There is nothing like Dr. Chase's
Syrup ot Linseed and Turpentine to

it soothes the irritated nerves,
eases and prevents the attacks of
coughing and enables the system to
throw off the disease. Iu fact the
great* popularity of this medicine Is
largely duo to Its success in curing
bronchitis and severe chest colds.
Since permanent recovery depends
largely ou getting the nervous system thoroughly restored. Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food Is of tho greatest
assistance in revitalizing the wasted
nerve cells. This combined treatment is ideal as a cure for bronchitis
and asthma, for, while the Linseed
and Turpentine brings relief to the
organs of respiration, the Nerve Food
restores the body to full health and
strength, and enables it to fight off
disease.
There are many Imitations of Dr.

JHUVB PRINTS NOT NEW.
They Seem to Have Been Used In
China Centuries Ago.
The general public has supposed
Lhat the thumb print system Is some*
tiling new that scieutlsts have devised
for purposes of identification. Such,
however, seems not to be tho case,
says Popular Mechanics. Investigation has revealed the tact that the
system originated with the Chinese.
For hundreds, perhaps thousands,
of years, the merchants of China have
used impressions of their thumbs In
lieu of signatures. To this day tn the
Interior of Chlnr- the thumb print Is
used on legal documents, especially
wills, in place of the written name.
The use of finger prints was transferred from Chlnr* lo India, where the
British adopted the system it a a
means of Identifying Lho native troops.
Prom lhat the custom became general in lhe British military service,
not only In India, bul throughout thc
Cn I It'll  Kingdom.
it was Introduced In the police departments of Great Britain by army
ofllcers, who returned from foreign
service to lake positions In the police

LIFE ON AN OCEAN LINER.
It Is Vastly Different New From What
It Wee Seventy Years Ago.
The many cafes sboard a modern
ocean liner have tlio atmosphere or tho
boulevard*. The old, loug baronial
board presided over by tbe captain, to
which (ho passengers were summoned.
by bell or trumpet, has given way to
separate tables. One ls free to dine,*
lunch or sup alone ut any hour in any
seat at any one* of a hundred small
tables Beatlug two, or one may Jolu a
party at a table seating seven, surrounded by decorations that rlvnl those
of the best rest n urn ins ashore.
And as In any lirst class hotel, the
guest Is not restricted to a table d'hote

hill of fare, and all meals are included
In tho price of the passage. Cafes lor
those who do not smoke, n uew convenience, have the air of such places
In Vienna. These arc distinct from the
open air veranda cafes with tbelr teak-
wood tables. ;
I Instead of lhe suit meats of twenty
yenrs ago both cabin and stcernge pas-
seugers have fresh meat dally. Twenty-eight thousand pounds of meat and
15,000 liters of beer were consumed by
lhe passengers of a single liner on one'
roeent voyage, whllo on tbe same ship
the cost of setting lhe table ror a sin-
gin year was J4.00U.UW.

Plant Some Evergreens.
How warm and cheering the green
of the evergreens looks during the
cold, snowy days. It seems almost
like summer to go among them when
the sun shines, and particularly when
they are thick enough to break off
the wind and, as Is so often the case,
a few birds still remaining iu the
north are flitting among them. The
southern home may plant them or not.
but no northern farm home can afford
to be without at least a few of them
to break th° bareness of the long,
leafless, snowy season. Let us resolve Irrevocably that this summer
we will surely start a few evergreens,

At a fashionable dinner, where all
the ladles wore decollete gowns except
one, the little three-year-old sou of Ihe
family wuh brought in to say good
night, to his mother. Lai or, when tho

asked him which lady he liked tho
best. "The one wllh the dress on,''
he replied.
My sister was trying to persuade
her little*boy lo be dressed. As usual,
he thoughi dtfteroutly and ran away
lo hide. Ills mother called blm a

saying: "Mother, you culled me Ave

them."

A Bishop Shocked
A visit which the Bishop of Willes-
den paid on a Saturday night to a
cheap (.hopping centre in Camden
Town tilled htm with horror, as he
explained the following Sunday, when
preaching at the Foundling Hospital:
"Last night, at eleven o'clock," he
said, "I happened to go through Cam
den Town, and stood outside utchers'
shops, where I saw a sight which 1
had never seen before in my lite.
Even in the eighteen years I spent in
the west of Canada I never saw anything like it. There were u couple of
hundred people standing outside each
of these shops, simply hungry and
starving, and trying to pick up at a
very cheap price the bits of meat that
were over after the butchers' day was
doue.   Such a thing ought not to he.
General Election, Sept
OTTAWA. July 16.—The Ottawa
Free Press is convinced that both political parties are lining up Tor a gen
eral election in the fall of 1913.
Whether the 'tip' has gone out or not
says the Free press, each party organization has received instructions
to look carefully after the lists so as
to be ready for any surprise which
the government may spring.
"In view of Mr. Borden's promise
that he would submit his naval policy to the people, nobody here can
understand how he can adopt a policy
of contribution with a more vigorous
naval program later on without a
general election. The program as
now outlined ip that the government
will come bark in the fall with its
naval program, submit it to parliament, introduce and pass the redistribution bill and then go to the conn
try in September of next year. Wheth
er the Liberals will allow this program to he carried out depends upon
developments. They arc certainly
keen to ask the arbitrament of public
opinion, especially in view of the provincial elections in Quebec und Saskatchewan and will put no obstacles
in the way of such an appeal. But
they will have considerable to say at
the neit session, both on the naval
question and on the trade issue and

ai members to prepare for a session
lasting  until   July  next  with  steady

Vogue of English Furniture
[A LL things English—furniture, up-1
* holstery, hangings, even wall papers aud china—are leaders of their!
various departments this year. And to !
whip up an Interest In English fashions tho mother country of the crnze
Ima sent over all sorts of replicas of
museum pieces ln the wny of chairs,
net tees, tables, cabinets, chests, etc.,
for the delectation of American shoppers.
Kvery period of English furniture
from Tudor t« Adam can be found in
modern pieces If one looks long and far
enough among the myriads of models
Alaptuyed In the various shops. As a
rule, one can And a complete range of
these types assembled In a single department.

In the roomy sent of a great suttee of
Wiiiliim nnd Mary's lime nnd ponder
on the bewildering array of mudorn
made pieces of historic fype.
Happily iho coiilen of museum pleooi
serve innliily iih n background for thu
practical and ronlly llvnhlo replicas of
lho eighteenth century, when such masters us Chippendale, Bheruton, lloppol-
whlto and lho Adam brothers brought
Kugllsh furiiliure from nusloro Hues to
really homelike ones. A Ihrce plcco ret
of Chippendale In the beautiful ribbon
• pattern which stands for somo of the
best of this master's work ts a good example of what Is being done In this
country ln copying beautiful old pieces.
This set, mado of solid mnhogany, Ih
hand carved In every lino, nnd in the
faithfulness of Its finish In the hack ok
well ns In the parts that show there
In uo discredit to the modern workman.
The upholstery Is nn old hluo nnd tan
damask touched wllh tinsel thread
which was copied In texturo and color
from  a  valuable antique.    Neur  thla
piece there Is another set of domestic
make In the lleppelwhlte style of plainer line. This, too, Is beautifully finished, although the carving ts not all done
by hand.
The machine carving, except ln such
Intricate work as that required for the
very lacy Chinese Chippendale, ls not
so far behind the old time handwork
when It ts touched up by hand, as
many very excellent pieces nre. Machine turning and carving lack life and
spirit, but there are hand carvers who
nfter Ihe machine has done the cutting
can give to tho machine product the
sharpness nnd spirit that characterize
work done by hand. Much of the so
called hand carving of today is of this
kind.
Kor living rooms the Sheraton type
Is espcclully suited, while Chippendale
furniture adapts Itself well to bedrooms, parlors nnd morning rooms.

requires spaciousness, being largo und

wood Is having u spirited uso Hits year.
There Is always nn advantage in mu-
hoguiiy furniture. WllllO other woods

•*rs for which tho old l-.ugllsh chintzes
ire famous. .Many of the houses mnleh
up papers for side walls and friezes or
Trlezca nnd huso borders to uso wltll
rubric covered side walls.
Ono will have no difficulty tn finding
damasks for upholsteries In old world
patterns and hosts of prints for summer pillows, bed covers and Ihe llko.
Ono of the things to remember tn using a period furniture of distinct typo
Is the necessity of keeping the rniiro
apnrlinent in which It Is used ln tho

beautify the waist wben followed by
this exercise:   From the position given
swing the right arm sideways above
the head and at the same time raise
the left leg outward. Return to position and repeat the movement from ten
lo twenty times; then change to the

Crepe de Chine Makes Smart Lingerie
pniCPE DE CHINE Is a fabric that has always been used for dainty frocks
^ nnd wraps, but this year the makers of lingcrio de luxe are employing
this material for their smart underwear. The charming nightgown illustrated
Is of while crape with a graceful yoke of Irish uud malteso Inces. The Irish
lace forms the Inner yoke. The lace decorated sleeves are tied with blue
ribbons.

IT-HE season for shortcake has arrived,
but making a good strawberry
shortcake Is an art. Some cooks make
It too sweet, others too heavy. The
layers of the cake should be thin, but
light, and without too Arm a crust.
Plenty of strawberries should be used
In the filling. A strawberry shortcake
Ib seldom perfect without whipped
cream. Whipped whites of eggs are
sometimes substituted, but with indifferent results. If plenty of whipped
ream Is used and the berries nre mellow and rich from standing in lhe sunshine, and last, but not least, if the
dough Is light and flaky, strawberry
shortcake is a dish flt for the gods and
rightly deserves Its international fame
as an American favorite. The average
sauce served wltb a shortcake Is
failure, especially tho cloying hot
sauces often used. If tho berries are
not Juicy, pure strawberry Juice slightly sweetened may be pnssed with the
whipped cream. The Juice will have a
delicious (lavor If obtained from berries
that have been standing with sugar
under strong sunlight for several hours.
Soda or sour cream or milk usually
makes a tenderer cake than one calling
for baking powder and sweet milk.
When sour milk or cream la not at
hand try the following recipe with
sweet milk and soda and cream of tartar:
Sift together twice one pint and a
half of flour, half a teaspoonful of soda,
a pinch of salt and a rounded teaspoonful of crenm of tartar. Rub through
the mixture half a cupful of butter.
Upon the proper mixture of these Ingredients success depends. Add a cupful of milk, stirring lt In quickly. Roll
It out to a third of an Inch In thickness. It rises considerably In cooking.
Bake In two layers until done In the
usual biscuit oven. Spread one layer
thickly with crushed and sweetened
berries.   Place the other on top of It.
Cover the top also wilh berries and
plnce the cake back In the oven to
stand fo£ live minutes, leaving thc
oven door partly open. Serve at once
with whipped cream.
Pineapple Pudding.
Place tn a saucepan to melt three
ounces of butter. When melted add
three ounces of flour and one pint of
milk. Bring to the boil, stirring all the
time. Tnke off the fire and add three
ounces of sugar, the yokes of two eggs
nnd pineapple Julco. Put In a pie dish
the contents of a small tin of pineapple
chunks, then pour the mixture over and
put In the oven to set. Beat the whites
of the eggs to a stiff froth und spread
over the pudding, 'hen return It to the
oven for a few minutes until a nice
brown color.
Beefsteak With Horssradish Sauce.
Somo epicures declaro that a perfect
steak demands no snuco, Its flavor not
being cupnble of Improvement, but If a
isaucii Is to bo used nothing could bo
moro acceptable at this season than
horseradish butter. Pound In a mortar
ono teaspoonful of grated horseradish
nnd mix witli It nn ounce of good butter. Season with a little salt nnd pepper ami It Is ready to servo with tho
btcb It. It may, however, be molded Into
neat shnpo and decorated with a few
sprigs of parsley.

Hints on Renovating Children's Clothe-*
■THE harassed mother of a large family ot children frequently sighs
over tho way they grow out of their
clothes, so a few bints should not come
amiss. To lengthen (urn down the hem
nnd put In a false hem afier carefully
pressing out the crease wilh a hot Iron
and cloth wrung out of hot wnter. Unfortunately this letting down ot the
hem moro often than not shows a line
at the let down portion has not faded
evenly with tho rest. If tiie tint Is not
very widely different a narrow line of
braiding laid upon tho crease will prevent Its being very noticeable nnd will
even, with a decided difference of tint,
innke tt appear to have been trimmed
witli a deeper shade of the same tint.
If the yoke or bodice in much too
small lt should be picked to pieces nnd
the yoke Inld upon a fresh lining of the
required size. A band of materia] at
the sides and bottom of the yoke will
generally make it large enough.
Usually In the caso of bodices the
sleeves may bo lengthened by adding
deep cuffs and the waist let down with
avfold of the some laid upon a piece of
lining of the required depth.
Party dresses can be lengthened by
adding rows of Ince insertion until
they are long enough in the skirt The
bodice can be treated tn the same manner and the dress look equal to new.
Children's underwear should always
bo made with lucks, ns these ean be
let down, but in tho life ef n petticoat
there must como a time when every
tuck ts let down and yet It Is not
ong enough. Whito muslin ones cnn
always have lho necessary length added by letting tn rows of Insertion until
tlio petticoat ts long enough. Flannel
ones require n different treatment, as
theso shrink in every direction, First
they should be laken out of the band,
and, if required to widen, rut out each
scam, taking care to hnve those at
equal distances apart, nnd let in an Insertion made of crochet worked in
rather coarse mercerized cotton This
finished, place the petticoats In a bond
of tho required size or Into n bodice
made large enough for the wearer.
After this lengthen '.ith some deep
crochet lo match the Insertion, This
should be of rather a close paltom, as
It looks better on flannel, (if course
Insertion may be let Into the skirt to
lengthen if liked. Undervcsls generally
gM too light nround thn nrmliole. If
short sleeved cut the vest rluhl through
from the neck lo (he bottom of the
sleeve and hem the raw edges by
working buttonhole b!Itches over iu
Then with some fine wool and n coarse
steel crochet needle work a broad
stripe of double crochet wldo enough to
mnke the nrmholo sufficiently wide. It
Is better to have a wide piece, as thu
wool shrinks a good deul.
