Toitu.vrn, Aug. 14.—A special to the
"World*' Irom Ottawa says: "Sir Wilfrid Ijaurier's trip to thc Western
Coast and tho probability that lie will
address the Manufacturers' Ausociu-
tiun Convention in Winnipeg, and
the news lhat Hon, Mr. Aylesworth
will lie there also, have caused political prophets to surmise that everything is being made ready fur an
appeal tn the country within a month
alter the next session uf parliament.
A man in the councils uf the party

His idea is that the tai'itl' will be revised in the interest nf the most persistent and with the view of catching
the popular fancy. Sir Wilfrid Laurier will put through legislation with
the intention of classifying his political
career and on u wave of unexcelled
prosperity appeal tu the country.
Said my informant: 'At the next
session of Parliament, greater representation will he given to the We6t,
and a measure of tariff reform will be
meted out to meet (lie wishes ul the
Western fanners and others, propar
atory to going to the country.'"
Interesting Lecture by Professor Shutt, of Ottawa.
A meeting was held in the city hall
last night under the auspices of the
Fanners' Institute. The Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Mr. J. it. Anderson, and Professor Shutt, Irom the Experimental Farm at Ottawa, were
present. These officers are making a
tour of the province Ior the purpose of
investigating the soil iu various parts
and proving its fertility for fruit growing.
F. Fraser took the chair and introduced the lecturers to the meeting.
Mr. Anderson, on rising, stated that
this was the first time be had had the
pleasure of speaking in Revelstoke on
fruit growing and was pleased to have
been able to du so. He then defined
the work and origin of the Farmers'
Institute, and the privileges a member
received. He was pleased with the
general result of the fruit growing industry near Revelstoke. Professor
Shutt, on being called upon to address
the meeting, commenced by saying
that he was disappointed and surprised that so little real work had been
done on the land iu Revektoke district
and that no advantage had been taken
of the great possibilities of the soil,
and what little work had been done
was without method. The markets
were good and the town bad made an
almost phenomenal development, but
he was disappointed to find no systematic effort had been made to supplj
the demand Ior fruit and vegetables.
The rainfall was gnud and the suil good
in must parts nl thc district, The
prolessor then descrilied the various
kinds ol soil suitable for Iruit growing,
and alsu the formation uf such soils
dwelling at length upon the "humus,"
or vegetable matter, which was the
most important part ol it. He ex.
plained the uses of manures and the
effect of lire on land, the excessive use
nf both being injurious tu the soil.
Rapid growth was essential fur vegetables and the Revelstukc suil was especially adapted lur vegetables, and
alter a little draining, fur fruit, The
effect ol nitrogen un suil made an interesting subject, and after giving a
lew words of advice us regards planting, etc., aud also complimenting the
district on water supply, Prolcssor
Shutt answered numerous questions
from members ol the meeting regarding fruit growing. Mr. Anderson, rising again, gave a short lecture nn Iruit
tree planting, pruning and general
care of an urcluird, and finished by
saying that if Revelstoke could muster over 20 members to the Fanners'
Institute, a lecturer would be sent
[rum Ottawa at slated times to hold
meetings and discuss agriculture in
general. Mr. Fraser declared a vote
of thanks to Prolessor Shutt and Mr.
Anderson un behalf ul the meeting and
brought the proceedings to a c.lnse.
The extreme longevity ol Richards

There will be no '*ong waits between

Union Labor will Oppose Reduction of Chinese Head
Tax—Plenty ol Men if Fair
Wages are Given.
Vancouver, Aug. 14,—The union
labor niun ol British Columbia, as
might be expected, are prepared to
oppose, if it seems necessary to them,
the concession asked lur by the Kootc-
ay Growers, ol a. remission ol the prohibitive bead tux on Chinese in favor
of agricultural laborers and duniestic
Frank Phillips, president of the
miners union in British Columbin,
"OI course we are against it. There
is no scarcity uf labor. Any man that
wants laborers can get them if lie will
pay a fair price. 1 cuu get it guod
many right here.
"A lair price? Well, $3 a day. A
niun can't live in this country on any
less. Now, ranchers don't offer any
such wages as that, and that is the
reason why white men dun't, care to
work on ranches.
"Can the fruit industry stand the
payment of Biich wages? I don't,
know. II it can't, the sooner it is
dropped, in my opinion, the better.
"But, judging from the prices
householders here have to pay for
berries, I think the growers can ulfnrd
to pay decent wages.
Tho landowners here claim that
thoir land is the best in the world lor
Iruit growing. If that boast depends
on getting cheap labor it should be
withdrawn. Other Iruit countries get
on without Chinese labor ur any cheap
labor, and the growers make good
"If the Kootenny fruit growers can't
do that, and some ul theni are quite
willing to try, they ought to get out ol
the business and make way for better
men that can."
Mr. John Brown, writing Irom Ymir
to the Nelson Daily Sews, says:
"The fruitgrowers sny thnt there is a
considerable loss caused by tbe want
of labor. They never think of the
loss it would be to the working class
of liritish Columbia, who hnve families and cannot get work. I wonder
il when the snow is on the ground the
inosBbackR will take the thousands of
men and feed and clothe them? .
The working man will have to compete against them till the Iruit grow
ers are ready for them in the summer.
The Iruit growers need not be alraid
ol not gett'ng enough white labor to
pick their fruit, il ihey pay anything
like ii fair living wage."
J. G., writing to the same paper,
lays emphasis on the offoct which the
low class Chinamen naturally hnve Oil
the children who nssuciiitc with them
in the houses in which thoy serve.
He says:
"Some people will sny: 'Oh, that
is all nonsense,' but us the mothers
encourage such classes ul people
around lhe liuuse, children arc mure
pt tn take their habits, and when
Ihey get older they will even slaud up
and lell their parents that, there are
lliosc Chinamen they hnve engaged lo
work and they sen llieni do so and so.
Our missionaries who are sent out to
those people in their own counlrv will
lell you the habits that they billow
there in China and how long have the
isfliunaries been trying to enlighten
them and what have they accomplished? Nothing, And then the
lowest and most degraded class comes
ovei'the seas."

Some idea of the strength ol the
Young Men's Christian Association ol
North America and the interest which
tlie people take in its welfare, may bn
gained from the fact that within twu
weeks the AsEuciiition completed can
vasses extending over periods of two
to thirty days, and received pledges for
the erection of new buildings amounting to more than $2,500,000. The
associations, while making an minimi
gain in their permanent equipment of
$1,500,000 to $3,000,000,11.11-0 never
before made such a record as this. The
amount of real property added to the
associations this year will undoubtedly exceed $5,000,000. Large private
linns have donated very handsomely
towards this movement which has
done so much lur the improvement

We say that justice is'swift! and yet,
what kind oi justice will bo measured
out in the case of the millionaire blood
poisoner? Those men who have for
years been systematically poisoning
human bluud un several continents
with diseased meat, filth and rubbish
are no less criminals than the men
who break the laws uf our community
and take human life. Iutheformer cose,
unfortunately, the law has not made
any provision, and these men arc
allowed tu still live in milliun dollar
mansions with their names on the
roll ol society, while in the latter case
it is a life fur a life, according to the
ancient law. The Chicago millionaire
meat packers have ruined thousands
ul human lives with disease, but who
is to prove it*; Happily the truth is
coining out nuw, but nut before tin
mischief lias been doue. These men
have been living on tho edge ol a vol
canic crater, almost unacknowledged
by themselves, putting confidence in
tiie ituiet and peaceful appearance ol
tbe scene; but now tlie Intent lires
have broken,,ut in tlietorni ol popular
indignation, and the clamorous outburst ha? pierced the shield of their
conscience which unfortunately can
be healed by chemical treatment, I ho

Five Lives Lost in Deadly Red
Winnipeg, Aug. lltli.—Ono of thc
greatest tragedies in tho history of
Winnipeg occurred on Saturday last
whin live young lives were lust in the
Red river and another hangs in the
balance. A gasoline launch struck n
sunken pile near the park and its
eight occupants werc thrown into the
water. Only three were saved, and belonging us they do to well known families in the city, the disaster bus created u most profound regret. It appears
that the party lelt the bunt house for
ii trip and had arrived within n hundred yards of their destination, when
without a moment's warning the
launch struck'the pile and tbe bow
rose in tbe air and the stern sank,
shipping water. The weight of the
engine dragged the boat down, but the
gasoline tunk in tbe li-w boated thai
end and by that means two ol the occupants were saved, while those in the
stern had no time io jump and wero
trapped by the boat lun,ing over.
Ono nl the young ne n made a ,-'.>!
lanl attempt I" rescue the young ue.es
but became exhausted and was only
nicked up in time to Bavc his own life,
which it now despaired ol.

Ottawa, Aug. 11th.—With a new
minister nnd a new director the public
will li.uk fui Bometbing duing in the
geological Burvey during the immeili
me luture. The survey hoe done great
mirk iii the pnst. it, is hue, but it lius
linen largely alnnj; lhe line o( pure
scientific wurk rather tlinn in econom-
ic geology, and therefore the results ol
nil the lulgo expenditure (luring the
past thirty ur forty years, valuable us
it undoubtedly bus been, has not appealed to the hard-liended, practical
men whu hnve been responsible Ior the
discovery and incipient development
of nearly all the mines nuw operating
in this country, The experienced
"prospector" is seldom a geologist, although he possesses n knowledge of
rocks and ores, and formations, and
placers, as well us of the woods and
mountains, and lms ut the same time
the will to face a.'d nvcreome difficulties, that is even ot greater value to him
than a certificate ol cnnipetency us a
genlngiBt from Toronto University
would bo if unattended with the practical qualifications that all successful
pioneers in mining hnve possessed,
The geological survoy can be made ul
enormous value to the mining industry, which is growing perhaps mure
rapidly than nny other, by becoming
mure practical; il does not need to
sacrifice or inipaii the scientitic value
nt the work it is doing, hut it can
bring its scientific knowledge to the
assistance of an enterprise that abovo
all others requires aid ul that kind,
and place it in llie forefront uf all
Canadian industries. A little more
knowledge ol geology on the part of
the working miner and mine owner
and a litrle more knowledge nl the
practical or economic side of mining
by the geologist* of Canada is what is
wanted in this country. It is possible
now that the geological survey has
been taken away Irom the interior department, where it was a little thing
among many big things, and given to
the minister of inland revenue, who
represents the great mining province
of the Dominion, and with a new director at its bead, that better economic work will be done limn ever belore,
Director Low leaves for liritish Columbia this week to look into the work
being done there.
It is understood that the place formerly filled by the director has been
tendered to Mr. Vi. R. Brock, who is
one of tbe most capable and efficient
officers in the department. Mr. Brook
was appointed to the permanent staff
on May 1st, 1807, and acted during
that season as assistant to one of tbe
field parties in British Columbia. In
1898 he was given oharge of a field
party in West Kootenay, and since
then has geologically examined West
Kootenay, East Yale, Boundary Creek,
Lardeau and Rossland districts. The
work of Mr. Brock in these districts
has met with the highest praise from
the local mining communities, and
his advice and judgment is readily accepted in all important mining problems in British Columbia.
Although every precaution is taken
by local Fruit Inspector Thos. Cunningham to prevent grain of all sorts
infected with vermin reaching Canada,
the fact remains that there are socks
of rice on the local docks literally
swarming with pests. The weevils are
bred in the grain before it is exported
and breeds in enormous numbers in a
very Bbort time. Wheat, rice and
other grain is mixed and when it is
placed neor other commodities the
vermin transfer their operations and
continue their deadly work. No section of Canada is more exposed than
British Columbia, and as has been
stated by the inspector, "that our
chiel danger aracs out of the fact that
we may import the pests, but not the
predatory insects which prey on them
and hold" them in check, thus disturbing the balance ol nature.

On Monday evening Mountain View
Camp, No. 2211, received a visil Irom
the llend Clerk nl the Order. Sovereign
Vi. C. Fitzgerald,ol London, Ont. . At
8 o'clock the mom hers assembled at
Selkirk Hull when matters relating to
the Older were discussed by the iiicin-
bers uud the visiting Head Camp olllcer, alter which the company sat down
ton repast, followed by a program ot
speech, song und music. F. II. Bourne,
P.CO., occupied the chair, und His
Worship Mayor McLeod honored the
icctision by being present.
In replying to the toast ol the Head
Camp, coupled with bis name, the
llend Clerk, who is an able speaker,
expressed the pleasure he lelt at meet
iug llis Worship lhe Mayor, and referred pleasantly to the many advantages ul our henutil'u' nnd progressive
city. Taking iqi the subject of Woodcraft, the speaker dwelt upon tho advantages of the Order. Ne other
society was more practically fraternal,
nor could present evidence of greater
growth at the siinie uge ns the VV. 0.
W. A beautiful leuture of the Order
wus the monument placed by the
Order over the grave of each insured
member. Although his visit wna not
ollieiiil, he merely being on u vacation
trip. He had that day gone into the
affairs of Mountain View Camp and
could congratulate the members upon
its condition. The books were accurately kopt and properly balanced, the
work reflecting oreditably upon Clerk
11. W. Edwards. Mountain View had
n splendid record as during its two
years existence there had been but
two suspensions Ior non-payment of
assessments, und the hall-yearly reports showed a steady Inorense in all
respects. He would refer also to the
excellent manner ill which E.S., It.
W, Haggen did his work, also Banker
A. J. Stevenson. The Camp possessed
a splendid working executive and It
wus this fact, backed up as it wus by
(he active interest of the whole membership, that resulted so well.
His Worship, the Mayor, who upon
jisfng received a great ovation Irom
the company, said he was pleased lu
meet the Head Clerk ol the W. 0. W.
and welcome Iiim to Revelstoke, lle
had much enjoyed conversation with
bun and largely shiired the viewa ex
pressed with regard to civic government. Owing In its progressive oltl-
/.ilia and Its many natural advantages,
Revelstoke was rapidly becoming the
hie( centre ol eiiinmerciiil and Industrial activity in the interior of II. 0.
He complimented the Woodmen ol
Ilevelstoke upon the progreas ol their
camp and urged them tu continue in
their efforts to build up the Order.

with tlie silver strenk glinting iu ito
deep canyon, rushing in its mad cnurso
11 the Columbia, ami glistening in tbo
sunlight the rugged sister peaks i f
Twin Untie rear their heavy siiininils
to the clouds. To the north lie tbo
head waters ol Eight Mile Creek where
the scene is split up into glaciers, deep
avines, high precipices and lofty crags
and peaks. Here can he seen the
beautiful Silver Tip Falls, one of the
most magnificent sights iu this region.
Awny in tho northwest mils the
mighty Coluinbin vi-iblo fur 40 miles
winding its way through forest nnd
canyon. To lho west the heavily timbered depths of the Jordan Pass luok
dim and mysterious, while to tinsmith rise in majestic grandeur the
snow chid peaks ol Mt. Bcgbio nnd
Mt. McArthur, the glaciers near tlie
summits glistening in the rays of the
sun. It is indeed u soul inspiring

By spending n summer vacation here,

W. Whyte, 2nd Vice-President of
the C.P.R, has ninde the announcement that the company bud tillered u
special rate oi $30 to agricultural
laborers Irom nil parts ol England,
Ireland and Scotland to nny point in
Manitoba, Alberta ir Saskatchewan,
in order to lend nil tbe assistance
possible to tho farmers of those provinces. The Hon. Capt. Tatlow, culling upon Mr. Whyte, at Victoria,
represented the almost desperate conditions in which the farmers und fruit
growers of British Columbia found
themselves for want of help, and suggested tlie C.P.R. might do something
towards their rebel. Mr. Whyte
evinced a deep nnd intelligent interest
in the case nnd without hesitation
promised to recommend thnt the
special rate be extended to fnnn
laborers (rom the United Kingdom to
British Columbia,
An interesting nnd instructive
scheme bus been put into practice by
the C.P.R. and other lines in the
introduction ol an " instruction car "
in which lectures are given to trainmen nt intervals in practical lessons
in the art ol nil' braking. One end of
the big couch is usurped by tbe power
room, which is succeeded by Ibe
dining room, library and berths. A
kitchen follows, nnd the remainder of
the spneo, practically hall the car, is
devoted to the lecture room, which is
fitted with every appliance known to
air braking, of both tlie Westinghoiise
and .New York models, including
enough cylinders nnd piping lu constitute nil nir bruke system for a 17-
('iiach train, During demonstrations
the various apparatus is put in motion
mid the points elaborated Irom the
actual working of the machinery.
This car und live other instruction
cms nre kept constantly on the move

SOME of the prettiest linen suits
have tiny waistcoats anil vests of
white linen or pique tucked In by
way of an extra little finish. For
that matter, they are not confined to
the suits of linen, fur sume mighty attractive cloth suits are given a sum-'
mery touch by their use.
Sometimes the vest Is scarcely more
than a mannish piping, which folds in
the V-shaped neck, crossing where the
coat null-tins over in don hie-breasted
fasnion. Oftener, the vest runs down to
the belt. Hand embroidery trims some
Of them, braids and buttons the rest, an
occasional, but very occasional, one left
perfectly plain.
Perhaps the most satisfactory of all
is the one illustrated, which, instead of
having to be ripped out when it needs
laundering, to lie sewed in again when
clean, is simply unbuttoned and buttoned on again.
lt is vi ry simple to make, being cut
on the straight of the goods, fifteen and
a quarter inches at its longest point by
twelve and three-quarters on the other
long side; three inches wide at the bottom, the slant at the top measuring
four and a quarter inches. And theso
measurements allow for seams on both
Make the vest of a double thickness,
or, if it is very sheer linen, with an interlining of heavy linen or of muslin.
Make four buttonholes at intervals of
two and three-quarters inches down
the long side, cutting ihem crosswise,
and set buttons on the inside of each
flap of tlie coat ae corresponding intervals. Let it fasten directly in front,
either with buttons—rather large ones—
or with hooks and eyes, invisibly set
upon tbe wrong side.
Hand embroidery robs them of their
stiff little air, without in the least detracting from their style, and Ihe interesting braids, which come in white
or in color, may be made, if applied
skilfully, to give a strength and character to vest or waistcoat that Is
Tiny vests of Peisian embroidery are
seen on some of the prettiest of the
pale-colored voile suits, which have
proved so popular for dress-up occasions
this year. Some of it is done by
hand, but most of it comes already embroidered upon soft white silk.
Beaded vests are occasionally seen-
quite gorgeous, some of them, the beads
so closely set that they seem like the
closely woven hands and belts of the
best class of Indian work. Yet the work
fs a form of embroidery, each bead put
on separately, following lhe blocked-out
design. For people who find the work
too hard, a bend braid comes, which
can be cut the required shape nnd
length, the only care needed being to see
* that threads which hold the beads are
made linn again after the cutting,
Braids, for that matter, offer endless
Variety in the making of tiny vests.
Sometimes a single braid, the design
twinkling in nnd out nf Its meshes In a
fascinating, mysterious way, makes up
Ihe vest; as often three or four braids
are combined, in subtle fashion, 80 that
thev seem wtlibd Into one thing, Impossible to resolve into its component
parts. Perhaps the composite whole
mav be trimmed, In its turn, with a design executed in fine little bratuB—tho
braiding repeated elsewhere upon the
coat and even upon the skirt.
Vests nre usually matched hy the
cuffs, while waistcoats as usually stand
by themselves, although with either, especially when It Ik made of linen, the
separate linen collar and cuffs are often
worn, the three parts lightening the suit
In the freshest, prettiest of ways.
SOME ONE has Invented n clever
itirm of the round garter which,
although not worn to the extent
that ii was before the straight front
corset with Its attached garters came
Into universal favor, still has a following.
In this new form, the elastic comes
almost all the way around the leg, with
perhaps the opening of an Inch between
the ends, to each of which Is sewed a
ribbon. Then the ribbons arc lied In a
pretty bow.
'pie elastic may stretch as much as
It pleases—the ribbon regulates the degree of lightness without the bother of
ripping and resewlng which any change
In a round garler has meant up to now.
Carter buckles are the next best
things. Iml the siuing may grow weak,

Women as Window
By Cynthia Wcstover Alden
Copyright, 1MB, by A. S. Barnes & Co
IN HUNDREDS of small stores In
city as well as country mere Is
some woman clerk who has made
herself invaluable by being a
clever window dresser. Of course, window dressing for the great stores is
an art by itself, chiefly followed by
men who make it an exclusive occupation. There is no reason why they
should be free from women's competition.
There is little about window dressing that is not as tasy to a woman
as to a man; and there are many reasons why w-ojiu-n ought to succeed
better. In the first place, store windows are dressed chiefly for the pleasing of women's eyes. In the second
place, women have more artistic sense
In the display of goods than men.
Where prices are shown at all, women
nre sure to place them so that they
can he easily seen. They realize what
the Importance of prices Is. Thoy are
shoppers themselves.
There Is no store, not even n shoe
Btora or a book store, that cannot be
made to furnish an attractive window
display. In the holiday season Christmas greens are used as a matter of
course for embellishment, When Independence Day lulls uround Hags are
freely displayed. Whenever any city
Is deeply Interested In any local demonstration or celebration the store
windows must respond to that interest. Live animals will always attract
attention. An automaton may be made
catchy. Nothing that will \\\ the eye
of the pedestrian is to be thrown aside
without consideration,
Tho work of the •"•inflow dresser
must be done after store hours, and is
Often dono In the small hours of the
morning, so thai evi ning crowds, even
afler the place is closed, may not look
at drawn curtains. A woman who Is
really adapted to the work ought to
make from Jl" to Mu a week at It. To
get the latter figure she would have
to first Impress some big store's management wilh a sense of her usefulness. In some villages it would be possible, hy devoting one's self lo it,
to make small sums each week from
each of several different stores, and
thus eke out a pretty fair income In
the aggregate,
Arranging Children's

BOTH roiintl unel scpiare tlancr-s are
appropriate, aa well us any sort
of fancy dances the children muy
have learned at dancing school.
When they tire of these, there should
be some good-niitured "grown-up" at
hand to suggest various games.
Some of the old, old pastimes ihnl are
played to lite accompaniment of music
-"Going to Jeiuealem," "Magic Music,"

the youngsters, while there I? nothing
like the ancient game of "State Coach,*'
in which every one changes places when

The refreshments can be either served from the buffet—that Is, passed
around to each little guest—or the children cun nil Le sealed nt one large table or nt various little tahles. There
Should he cake, Ico cream and simple
candies, tiny three-cornered sandwiches
or rolled sandwiches lied with ribbons.
The last roitr.e should he lhe snapping mottoes iluit contain the pre-tiy
paper cups „( which children ure so

s,,ri It is fashionable to servo either beef
or chicken l,„iilllon In dainty cups,
A fane-v-tiress party or masquerade Is
Just as delightful an i-nlerlniiiini nt for
children ns it is for their elders, All
sons of fumy costumes can be worn,
but Mother (loose and Kate Cireenu-
ivny dresses are lhe prettiest If the
youngsters ure small.
N THESE days,  when cellars and
cuffs and  petticoat   milks are all
built upon ihe adjustable plan, the
lingerie huls which children wear,
naturally enough, are made so that they
may be taken apart easily, laundered,
and put together again.
Usually, In such cases, the crown Is

many  nnolher.    lrsiead of  buying  the
rubber rings by the down, she gets ihem
by the pound, or fractions Ol It, and
Ihe difference In cist is marked.
THE round dollies, made of leftover
hits of linen or table damask, and
finished quite simply with a scallop, have lost none of their popularity
-they're too all-round satisfactory for
that, Bui variations of the original
theme are being developed from time to
Dottad damask-the good old staple
kind which is in use for table cloths and
napkins in nine out of ten houses-
makes the newest of them. Both the
squares and dots are used, but usually
only the smallest size of either.
The scallop is emhroldered heavily,
and sometimes a smaller circle described
inside, a couple of Inches away from the
edge, the scallop reversed, so that the
firm edge comes nearer the centre.
And, by the way, an occasional woman buttonholes the outer scallops twice,
once before cutting out, going over the
work iigaln tv that no loose thread from
fraying stuff may work through. I t'n a

THE care of a child nfter ho has
passed his third year Is not
quite such a serious problem
as it has been during his earlier
years; there is still, however, much
for the mother to do In regard to the
child's training, both mental and
physical, and a few words of advice
regarding these subjects mny not
come amiss,
The following measurements, taken
from Dr. L. Kinmeit Holt's Utile book,
"Tin* Care and Feeding uf Children,"
show how the average child progresses
physically at this time!

When the child Is 6 years old, tho
mother may expect ut any time lo
see the little teeth which composed
the first set gradually drop oul, being replaced by the second set of
teeth, in. this second set there are
thirty-two teeth, which often appear lu

helmer und Dr. Holt:

The teeth of the first sei become loosu
of their own accord and then drop uui;
or, if they are so loose as to make the
mother fear the child may swallow
ihem during the night, the teeth should
he drawn. Unless absolutely necessary,
however, it is better to let them drop
out of their own accord, for If drawn
too soon the Jaw may shrink, and so
crowd the new teeth as they come in
and cause them to he crooked.
When there Is any tendency to crooked
teeth, the child should be taken to a
good dentist and the teeth straightened
as soon us he thinks It advisable. If
there are uny cavities in either the tirst
or second set, they should he- filled as
soon as seen. Some reliable tuoih-pow-
der should now be used on the toothbrush at least once a day. 'llie teeth
should be brushed in the vertical ns well
as In the horizontal position,
The child should still keep enrly
hours, going m bed at 7 or, at the latest, Ji o'clock. It Is nol necessary for
lilm to take a nap every day, hut In
summer il Is wise to take off ids clothing during the very heated part of the
day, and, pint lug on the nighl dress,
have him lie down for ahoul an hour;
If he goes lo sleep, so much lh-   heller.
ll Is often more convenient lo give
an older child his hath just before bedtime than in Ilu* morning, and ihere Is
im objection lo ihla way, if the mother
prefers It. The hath should Im- Just lukewarm now, as in earlier life. When tills
tub hath Is given at tdght, It Is well to
sponge ilu- upper pari nf the body, at
least every morning, with cold water.
This will often keep tlm child from
caichlng cold eaally.
When the child iw 4 years old, lie may
he sent to lhe kindergarten for a half-
(iy session, and when he Is ti, he may
begin to go to n little primary school
for three hours in the morning. Ho
should not be allowed to do any studying home, however; he needs all the rest
of the time for out-of-door exercise and
For a city child, regular exerelso by
means of gymnastics Is almost Indispensable. These exercises should ho

Children shnuM Invariably have
three regular and nourishing meals
every day. They should'not be allowed
to cat candy, cake ur, in fact, anything else between meals.
Thoy may eat any nourishing, easily

milk and water. They should nol eat
pork In any form, rich poultry,
game, gravies, any fried vegetables
or, In fact, anything else thai Is fried,
pastry, rich cake, griddle cakes, raisins
or the seeds Of grapes, They should
never be allowed to drink lea, coffee,

opening with a narrow casing, through
which a tiny tape is run. The clrch
which forms lhe full crown Is finished
With a casing, too, and a drawing-string
Of tape.
The trimming is necessarily simple,
and is usually just a great bow of ribbon

e-iing the tapes. Or a wreath of (lowers

tiny forget-me-nots-may he used for the
same purpose. Even wide strips of the
material, embroidered upon lhe ends,
may lie used instead, brought around
the crown and tied in a great bow like
a small sized, sash  In front.
The brim may be faced with the plain
linen, or with linen upon which the scalloped edge is repeated and set point to
point, all the wiy around. The design
itself, however, is never repeated upon
the facing. Or narrow Valenciennes lace
may be frilled on. the rows widening
until the whole facing is hidden. If
you do this, don't make the frills too
full, or they will droop in a bedraggled
fashion that is anything but pretty.
While linen makes nine oat of ten
hats, but the occasional one is made of
pink or blue- and is so pretty as to be
wt-rlh while even if sun and doing up
conspire to make it short-lived.
Uut to the design:
The pattern shows a quarter of the
brim, and ts intended to he work*d in
eyelet stitch, although it can he done
in either solid embroidery or shadow
work, or in a combination of eyelet and
blind embroidery equally well. H you
do it in solid work, pad the dots well,
and, in press,ng. see to it that the ironing board is padded thickly, too; half
the beauty of lhe design lies in its being
effectively raised from the surface.
To transfer the design, rule a line hy
a thread, If possible, crossing it at right
angles with another Hue, also drawn by
a thread.
Lay the 'inen. if It Is the sheer kind,
over the brim design, spacing It so that
it just tits Into one nf the corners made
by the foundation lines and trace It off
with a rather Bofl pencil. Then repeat
in the next corner unlll the four form
d i Ircle.
If Ihe linen is the heavy kind, lay
Impression paper upon It. and the de-
slgn, right sid*- up, upon that. Then go
over it with a hard pencil or a dull-
pointed instrument.
Regular markers nre made for this
very purpose—pretty little things of
mother-of-pearl lnokinc nol unlike a
tiny penholder hm a homemade affair
if wood, whl tiled out by the handy man,
Is quite as good,
In using ihe Impression paper, great
care must be used to make the four
parti join neatly. Even with heavy

dowpanc, so that the strung light brings
