THERE was much doing that
winter lu the Llnley district.
They were a month getting
ready for the school "exhibition." Every home In the valley and
up Cedar bill raug with loud declamations. Tbe impassioned utterances of
James Otis, Daniel Webster and Patrick Henry were beard In house and
field and stable. Every evening women were busy making costumes for a
play, while the young rehearsed their
parts. Polly Vaughn, editor of a paper
to be read that evening, searched the
countryside for literary talent. She
found a young married woman who
had spent a year in the State Normal
school aud who put ber learning at the
service of Polly In a composition treating the subject of Intemperance. Miss
Betsey Leech sent ln what sbe called
"a piece" entitled "Home." Polly her-
Belf wrote an editorial on "Our Teacher," and there was hemming and haw-
fug when she read It, declaring they
all bad learned much, even to love
blm. Her mother helped ber with the
alphabetical rhymes, each a couplet of
sentimental history, as, for example:
A is for Alson, a lolly young man;
He'll marry Miss Betsey, they say, lf be
Tbey trimmed tbe little schoolhouse
with evergreen and erected a small
stage where the teacher's desk bad
been. Sheets were bung for curtains
on a ten foot rod.
A while after dark one could hear a
Bound of slelghbells iu tbe distance.
Away on drifted pike and crossroad
the be.is began to fling their music. It
Seemed to come iu rippling streams of
sound through the still air, each with
Its own Voice. In half *an hour countless echoes filled the space between
them and all were as one chorus, wherein, as It came near, one could distinguish song and laughter.
Young people from afar came In cutters and by the sleigh load; those who
lived near, afoot witli lanterns. They
were a merry company, crowding the
schoolhouse, laughing and whispering
as they waited for the Crst exhibit.
Trove called them to order and made
a few remarks.
"Remember," said he, "this ls not
our exhibition. It ls only a sort of
preparation for one we have planned.
In about twenty years the Llnley school
Is to give an exhibition worth seeing.
It will be, I believe, an exhibition of
hnppiness, ability and success on tbe
sreat stage of the world. Then I hope
to have on the programme speeches In
congress, in the pulpit and ut the bar.
You shall see In that play, If I mistake
not homes full of love aud honor, men
and women of fair fame. It may be
you shall see, then, some whose names
are known and honored of all men."
Each performer quaked with fear,
and both sympathy and upproval were
in tbe appluuse. Miss Polly Vaughn
was a rare picture of rustic beauty,
ber cheeks as red as ber ribbons, her
voice low and sweet. Trove came out
in tbe audience for a look at her as
she read. Ringing salvos of laughter
greeted the play aud stirred the sleigh-
bells on the startled horses beyond the
door. Tbe programme over, somebody
called for Squire Town, a local pettifogger, who flung bis soul and body Into every cause. He often sored bis
knuckles on tbe court table and racked
his frame with the violence of his rhetoric. He bad a stock of Impassioned
remarks ready for all occasions.
He rose, walked to tbe ceuter of the
stage, looked sternly at the people aud
addressed them as "fellow citizens."
He belabored the small table; he rose
on tiptoe and fell upon bis heels; often
he seemed to fling bis words wltb a
rapid Jerk of bis rlgbt arm as one
hurls a pebble. It was al) in praise of
bis "young friend," the teacher, and
tbe blgb talent of Llnley school.
The exhibition ended wltb this rare
exhibit of eloquence. Trove announced
the organization of a singing school for
Monday evening of the next week, and
then suppressed emotion burst Into
noise. Tbe Llnley scboolbouse had become as a fount of merry sound In the
still nlgbt; then the loud chorus of the
bells, diminishing ae tbey went awny
and breaking Into streams of music
and dying faint lu tbe far woodland.
One Nelson Cartrlght— a Jack of all
trades they called him—was the singing
master. He was noted far and wide
for song and penmanship. Every year
his Intricate flourishes in blnck and
white were on exhibition at the county
"Waal, sir," men used to say thoughtfully, "ye wouldn't think he knew
beans. Wby, he's got a fist blgger'n a
lunn. But I tell ye, let bim take a pen,
•Ir, and he'll i\jai}',(i <le_. r so unt'rul. sir.
ye'd swear *he could jump OVSf a' SIX
rail fence. Why, lt is wonderful!"
Every winter he taught the arts of
song and penmanship in the four districts from Jericho to Cedar hill. He
sang a roaring bass and beat the time
with dignity and precision. For weeks
he drilled tbe class on a bit of lyric
melody, of which a passage Is here
"One, two, three, ready, slug," be
would say, his ruler cutting the air,
and all began:
Listen to the bird and the maid and the
Tra, la la la la, tra.- la la la la;
Joyfully we'll sing the gladsome melody,
Tra, la la la ia.
The singing school added little to the
knowledge or the cheerfulness of that
neighborhood. It came to au end the
last day of the winter term. As usual,
Trove went home with Polly. It was a
cold night, and as the crowd left them
at the corners he put his arm arouud
"School ls over,"  said "She, with *
sigh, "and I'm sorry."
"For me?" he Inquired.
"For myself," she answered, looking
down st the snowy path.
There came a little silence crowded
with happy thoughts.
"At first I thought you very dreadful," she went ou, looking up at blm
with a smile. He could see her sweet
face in the moonlight and was tempted
to kiss lt.
"You were so terrible," she answered.
"Poor Joe Beach! It seemed as lf he
would go through the wall."
"Well, sometbing had to happen to
blm," said the teacher.
"He likes you now, and every one
likes you here. I wish we could have
you always for a teacher."
"I'd be willing to be your teacher always if I could only teach you wbat
you have .taught me."
"Oh, dancing." said she merrily.
"That is nothing. I'll give you all the
lessons you like."
"No. I shall not let you teach me
tbat again," said be,
"Because  your pretty  feet trample
on me."
Tben came another silence.
"Don't  you  enjoy   It?"   she  asked,
looking off at tbe stars.
"Too much," said he. "First, I must
teach you something. If I can."
He was ready for a query lif lt came,
but sbe put him off.
"I intend to be a grand lndy," said
she, "and if you do not learn you'll
never be able to dance with me."
"There'll be others to dance with
you," said he. "I have so much else to
"Oh, you're always thinking about
algebra and arithmetic and those
dreadful things," said she.
"No. I'm thinking now of something
very different."
"Grammar, I suppose," said she, looking down.
"Do   you   remember   the   conjugations?" ■)
"Try me," ssld she.
"Give me the flrst person singular,
passive  voice,  present  tense,  of  the
verb to love."
"I sm loved," was ber answer as
she looked away.
"And don't you know I love your"
sold he quickly.
"Thnt is the active voice," said she,
turning, with a smile.
"Polly," said he, "I love you as I
conld love no otber In the world."
He drew ber close, and she looked
up at him very soberly.
"You love me?" sbe said In a balf
"With all m.v heart," he answered.
"I hope you will love me some time."
Their lips came together.
"I do not ask vou now to sny that
fo* love me," said the young man.
"You are young and do uot know your
own heart."
She rose on tiptoe and fondly touched
his cbeek with ber fingers.
"But I do love you," sbe whispered.
"I thank God you bave told me, but
I shall ask you for no promise. A year
from now, theu, dear, I Bhall ask you
to promise that you will be my wife
some time."
"Ob, let me promise now," sbe whispered.
"Promise only that you will love
me lf you see none you love better."
Tbey were slowjy nearlng tbe door.
Suddenly she stopped, looking up at
"Are you sure you love me?" she
"Yes," he whispered.
"As sure as11 am that I live."
"Aud will love me always?"
"-AI-VJIVA" lws. stmmrml.
one drew his bead down a little and
put her lips to bis ear. "Then I shall
love you always," she whispered.
Mrs. Vaughn was waiting for theu
at tbe fireside.   They sat talking awhile,
"You go off to bed, Polly," said tbe
teacher presently. "I've something t»
say, and you're not to hear lt."
"I'll listen," said sbe, laughlug.
"Then we'll whisper," Trove answered.
"That Isn't fair," sbe said, with a
look of injury, as she beld the candle*
"Besides, you don't allow It yourself."
"Polly ought to go away to school,"
said he, after Polly bad gone ubovl
stairs.   "She's a bright girl."
"And I so poor I'm always wondering  wbat'U   happen  tomorrow,"  said
There was an awkward silence.
Mrs. Vaughn. "The farm bas a mortgage, uud if s more than I can do ta
pay the Interest. Some day I'll bave to
give It up."
"Perhaps I can help you," said tbe
young man, feeling tbe fur ou bis cap.
There was an awkward silence.
"Fact Is," said the young man, a bit
embarrassed—"feet Is, I love Polly."
In the silence that followed Trove
rtuHd bear the tick of his watch.
"Have ye spokeu to ber?" said tha
widow, with a serious look.
"Vve told her frankly tonight that I
low her," said he. "1 couldn't help It,
ahe was so sweet and beautiful."
"tf you couldn't help It, I don't nee
bo v I could," said sbe. "But Pollf's
outy a child. She's a big girl, 1 know,
but she's only eighteen."
' 1 haven't asked her for any promise.
It wouldn't be fair. She must have a
el-ance to meet other young men, till
some time I hope she will be my wifo."
"Poor children!" said Mrs. Vaughn.
"fou don't either of y»u know wllat
you're doing."
He rose to go.
"I was a llttle premature," be added,
"hut you mustn't blame me. Put yourself in my place. If you were a young
man and loved a girl as sweet as Polly
aud were walking borne with her on a
moonlit night"—
"I presume tbere'd be more or less

otber day, and sbe said to me: 'He ls

lessons ln dancing, and put on your
best clothes, and make biscuit for him,
and then perhaps he'll go out and talk

'Well, It comes so easy,' said sbe.   'It's

It Causes an Excessive and Injurious
I Strain on tho System.
I Every one knows that the ascent ot
a staircase Is more fatiguing than ordinary walking. In walking progression
ls effected by a succession of lifts. Inclinations and swings.
In starting tbe body ls lifted, for example, by tbe levers of tbe right foot
aud ls inclined forward. Tbe left foot
being tben raised from tbe ground, the
leg swings forward and is carried hy
ita momentum beyond the right foot
The levers of tbe left foot now lift
the body again, and the rlgbt leg
swings forward, and so the body oscillates along on a pair of pendulums.
Short pendulums vibrate more quickly
than long ones, and therefore short
legged people step quicker tban long
legged people, though with no more
sense of exertion.
In going upstairs the mechanism of
progression is of course tbe same, but
the lifting action, whlcb is tbe real
force consuming port of tbe process, ls
now greatly increased.
Instead of being just sufficient to admit of the free, swing of the pendulum
foot it must be so great as to project
the body up at each step a distance
equal to tbe height of the stair.
Running upstairs is thus an excessive strain upon tbe constitution, but
where does this strain fall? Tbe levers
of motion are moved Immediately by
the muscles, but tbe muscles cannot
act of themselves.
Their contractions snd relaxations
take place only under stimulus. They
are all connected by lines of force, called nerves, with the nervous centers,
and these are the sources of muscular
Not that tbe nerve force of the brain
Is converted into tbe mechanical movement of progression, but nerve force Is
constantly drawn upon to maintain
the action of the muscles, and this
draft ls always greatest where there is
a sense of exertion.
When bodily' vigor Is high, tbe evil
result of running upstairs may not be
decidedly felt, but where there ls debility of any of the processes this
strain cannot fall to tell in some form
or   other   with   Injurious   effect      .

The Last of His Legion.
Apostolos MawTogenis, the last oi
the Greek champions of liberty of
1821, has died at the age of 114. Maw-
rogenis was born at Piraeus in 1792,
and on account of the cruelty of the
Turkish Government had to flee with
his parents to Italy, where he later
studied medicine. When the war of
independence started he formed a legion of the Greeks studying in Italy
and with it served under the command of the great Kolokotrom. He
continued in the army lor forty-five
years and retired aa surgeon general.

What It Should Contain and How M
Should Be Kept
In constructing the butler's pantry II
ls hardly possible to have too -much
shelf room for placing the dL_hes aa
tbey are removed from the table. It Is
a good plan to bare two sinks side by
side, one for washing and one for tins-
[ Ing the dishes. Tbey should be well
flushed every two or three dnys with
boiling water and washing soda. Tbls
will keep the pipes free from grease.
All racks for bauglng towels should
be of nickel. Theu there Is no danger
of rusting. Be sure there ls plenty of
light ln the pantry.
A competent maid will be particular
about keeping the. butler's pantry
clean, wiping off tbe gluss doors and
shelves and polishing all nickel fixtures. The drawers holding table
linen need not be cleaned as often as
those In wblcb the crumb scraper, carving utensils, etc., are kept. Tbe silver drawer should be provided with *
targe, neatly fitted pad of canton flannel. Tbe dust may be frequently
shaken from this, and the silver should
be laid hi it in an orderly fashion-
knives ln one part forks lu another
and tablespoons and teaspoons being
kept separate to.save time ln serving.
Tablecloths should be folded as little
as possible and require a large drawer. The napkins and doilies should
occupy a separate drawer. AU linen
uot in constant use may be kept in the
linen closet or highboy.
Canton flannel bags for covering the
broom to use In dusting hardwood
floors, chamois and neatly hemmed
cheesecloth dusters should be kept in
another drawer. Shelves painted white
are much better than those covered
witb oilcloth and are easily kept clean.

The Possibilities For the Cook of Thit>
Cut of Meat.
Purchase a whole flank. Remove the
fat and render aB lard. When slightly
cool add a balf pint of olive oil and
run it into a pall. This makes a very
superior article for cooking purposes.
Cut a strip across the flank, roll tightly, tie well with grocers' twine and boll
uutil tender. Wben cold cut iu very
thin slices.
Cut away the thickest of the remainder of- flank and put through a food
chopper wltb a few slices of salt pork.
Season with pepper aud salt aud shape-
Into small flat cakes. Brown some butter tn a frying pan and lay bi tlic-
i-akes. Wheu brown on one side turn,
and brown on tbe ether; tben cover
the pan and cook ten minutes on top of
the stove.
Put tbe pieces of bone and remaining
pieces of meat Into a kettle witb cold
water. Put over the fire and boll until
well cooked. Remove tbe bone and cut
the meat fine. Return the meat to the-
kettle, with one onion minced fine and
one cupful of macaroni broken In smalt
bits. Cook until tbe macaroul ls soft

Good Sight and Good Health Returned when
tho Liver was Set Right by
To persons who have not considered
tho relationship of eyesight to general
health this letter will prove especially
Mrs. A. R. Price, Nose Creek, Calgary, Alta., writes: "I write to tell
you how highly we think ot Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, for they are unsurpassed for torpid liver, constipation,
and kidney troubles. My husband
derived great benefit from Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills a couple ot years
ago when he was feeling depressed
and regularly out of sorts. His eyesight was failing and the lamplight
hurt his eyes so he could not read at
all and had made up his mind to see
an oculist.
"I advised him to try Dr. Chase's
Kldney-Llver Pills, thinking he was
suffering from torpid liver. He did
so and after using less than two boxes
his eyesight entirely returned and
he felt quite well again. We would
never  be   without   these pills  ln   the
house and I cannot speak too highly
of them."
Dr. Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills are
marvelously prompt and certain as a
cure for sluggish action of the liver.
While awakening the liver they also
regulate the bowels and invigorate the
kidney  action.
In this way the filtering and excretory systems are thoroughly cleansed
of all poisonous Impurities and the
cause of pain, sickness and suffering
In every family there Is need of just
such a medicine as Dr. Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills to cure constipation,
backache, biliousness, Indigestion and
prevent dangerous and fatal diseases
of the kidneys and bowels. One pill a
dose, 25 cents a box, at all dealers,

protect you against Imitations thi

Chinese Pirates.
When Chinese pirates art ceught and
convicted they speedily pay the p-i-
alty of their crimes. A newspaper of
the far east publishes this bit of news:
"Seven of the pirates who took part ln
the attack on the river steamer Suln-
am\ wer a beheaded ln Canton. The
prisoners were brought on to the
ground ln baskets, from which they
were Immediately released. They were
then made to kneel ln a row. Promptly
on the stroke of 12 the executioners
took up tbelr positions In front of the
doomed men and cut off tbelr heads ln
very quick succession, to the accompaniment of toud shouts from the Chinese spectators."
Elementary Schools  In Great Britain
Reduce Number of Criminals.
Since the year 1870 millions of
money have been spent on elementary
schools in Great Britain. Have the
great results which were then anticipated been realized? It is very
pleasant to note that the highest hopes
of promoters of education thirty years
ago  are  accomplished facts to-day.
In 1670 there were 30,000 people in
jail, nearly 6,000 more than there had
been ten years before. Now, though
the population of the United Kingdom has increased by over fifty per
cent., we have to-day only some 20,-
000 people in prison. That this good
effect is due to our elementary schools
is strongly suggested by the following table:
1870. Present day.
Population 22,500,000   34.000.000
Number of persons
under sixteen in
prison, reformatories, etc       11,73s 2,321

The condition of Sixteenth av-.

The new  Methodist church Is
rapidly roaring completion, and th*
carpenter-; will be through with
their work in another week. The
frescoing of the ceiling and walls
in the big auditoriuwi is progressing rapidly, All the work in the
basement portiop of the building is
practically finished. As one enters
at the present Sunday School entrance and turns to the left they
eome to a Urge hall; just opposite
the entrance to this hall is a doorway leading into the Primary class
room, on the right side of tne hall
near the entrance the library room
is situated, and it is provided with
a window for receiving and passing
out books. The hall wads towards
the rear of the building a short distance, and then turns to the left and
leads to a large room directly under
the big tower. This large room is
to be given oyer to the use of the
young men of the church. Just at
the turn in the hall is a wide doorway leading into the big dining-
room, which seats at least three
hundred; at the north end of the
dining-room is situated a large
kitchen, provided with a long cupboard with glass doors, also a window for passing out the refreshments. At the southwest corner of
the basement is situated the ladies'
parlor, which is large and light.
Back of the big dining-room is the
official board room. There are two
toilet rooms on the basement floor.
Back of the jbig auditorium on the
first floor, which will seat 1500, is
the pastor's study, choir room, and
on the seconji story, back of the balcony, are three rooms for various
uses. There are many doors and
stairways throughout so that access
can be easily obtained to alj portions of the building. There are
a number of drinking taps placed
in the hajlways on the basement and
first floors, and also toilet conveniences. All-inT_H, no better **>
ffingenvatfs could he provided <fcin
have been made in this big new
church. The fine pews, ordered
from the east, have arrived and the
man in charge of them will begin
the placing of the pew(| $,£ soon as
possible. The big pipe organ is expected to arrive any day. The
-jpening it is anticipated will take
place the third Sunday in June.
When complete in every detail, the
church will represent an expenditure of $35,000.
The big Sunday School portion
now being used for church services
as well, is filled with large eongre
gations morning and evening, its
sealing capacity «f 750 being taxed
to the limit in the evenings. Tne
Sunday School attendance on Sun-
4ay afternoon last was 420, The
Sunday School has grown in nnfft
hers rapidly since nioying into the
fine new building.
The city authorities should put
down good sidewalks along T-j.nth
aw-d the ©ther streets leading to the
new building and make it convenient for the large number of people
attending (his djureh to have easy
access to it.

Would   Expect  Larger  Share  of  Protection  If Contributing To,, Its Cost.
The debate on the address recently
was enlivened by a statesmanlike and
tacfful speech from Mr. Balfour dealing with Mr. Harold Cox's, proposal
that the question of larger colonial
contributions to the cost of the navy
should be raised at the approaching
Colonial  Conference.
The proposal wns ill-advised. If we
study the question from the colonial
standpoint, we shall, see that there
are strong political reasons against
any such a request being pressed by
the Mother Country. Canada, for example, needs first and foremost the
assistance of a powerful army to defend her southern frontier. That England is not attempting to give her.
The Monroe doctrine incidentally
protects her against aggression on the
■part of any power other than the
"United States. She knows that the
British Navy is now almost entirely
•concentrated in home waters, and if
she contributed to its costs she could
scarcely be'expected to acquiesce in
"this condition of affairs. As for Aus-
"tralia, that country is much exposed
to foreign attack because its population is so exiguous, but even here a
contribution in cash is- undesirable.
Far better would it be for the Australians to form a navy of their own
-or to train and equip a strong land
force, which would be of infinitely
•greater service to the Empire than
any tribute of gold.
Mr. Balfour pointed out that the
daughter-States of the Empire incur
some danger from the Imperial tie, if
■they also derive real advantages from
it. He doubted, and with reason, whether the British. Fleet eould be diminished even if this country lost its
colonies. Mr. Winston Churchill indicated the sound lines on which the
Government will net in the Conference. It will endeavor to secure the
organization of colonial forces on
principles similar to those accepted
in England, and it will not put forward foolish clnims on account of
services conferred on the Empire by
ithe British Navy.

Whan the World Was a Cube.
There was a time, centuries since,
of course, when the learned men of
the world really taught that the world
was a square, not merely tint,.. but
thut lt was a cube. The primitive geographers of Egypt, Assyria and China
nil taught that the world was a
"square plane," evidence of which may
be found on thousands of ancient monuments in the countries mentioned, as
well as In their ancient manuscripts,
upon their Inscribed tablets of clay and
other early literary remains. One of
the most curious discoveries ever made
ln Central America concerning Toltec
beliefs, symbols, etc.. Is that they also
had a similar idea concerning the form
of what we now speak of as the
"globe." A writer on the discoveries
made among the monumental ruins of
that country says, "They (meaning the
Peruvlnns, Toltecs and Quiches) believe the world to be a cube, suspended
from the heavens by cords of gold fastened to each of Its corners."

The astronomer Lalande narrowly

its exact situation. Two days later he
struck lt once more and made a record
of lt. But when he looked over his
notes he found he had it down as being In two different places, and as a
star cannot move ln forty-eight hours

Previous to Mr. Record going into tho
manufacture of stoves, those used in
Canada were almost wholly ol American
manufacture. The character of the work

business soon grew up, largely owing to
Mr. Record's untiring industry and perseverance against many obstacles.
Although Mr. Record retired from active
business as far back as 1870, the solid
basis on which he had established the industry, has resulted in its growth from a
sturdy pioneer into one of the largest stove
manufacturing plants on the northern half
of the American continent. With two

SHADOW work has had such a
"run" for the last year that It
might be thought to have- had
its day, did lt not seem to be stronger
than ever.
This may not be so as regards
blouses and whole dresses, but lt is
certainly marked as far as fancy
work ls concerned, also for lingerie
Shadow work ln rather small designs Is a quick and showy way to
embcjllsh a corset cover or night'
gown, especially now that the work la
given mo.« character by the use of
xxtrn stitches for shading on the
light Bide.
For fancy work It Ib made really
lovely by the use of tinting, softly
, blended colors, fancy stitches ln certain parts on the right side, centres
of French knots or solid embroidery
and studding ln black, white or
opalescent beads.
Sofa pillows, bureau covers, moucl-ilr
eases, pin cushion tops and glove
cases all are quickly and effectively
done in shadow work, often the whole
set being made to match.
A very attractive set of this kind
has a butterfly design, three large
ones on the pillow and a flight of
butterflies on smaller pieces. The material ls a sheer*"_awn.
The pillow has three large butterflies-
one blue, one pink and the other yellow-
done ln shadow stitch. Certain spots
and markings on the wings are outlined
on the outside In contrasting colors,
while the body and feelers are outlined
in black. Glass beads ln black, vlnio
and opalescent tints to match the color
of the butterfly are UBed very freely on
the right side with brilliant effect.
The flights of butterflies on the other
pieces are worked In the same delicate
tints, charmingly combined. The head-
work Is, If anything, more beautiful In
the smaller design.

fulness at the corners. Baste lt
carefully with the right side of the
ruffle to the right side of the embroidered front; on top of this baste

side In. Sew ln a seam an eighth of
an inch deep around three sides, leaving a big enough space on the fourth
side to turn the cover and slip lr
the pillow.
When the cover ls turned 8—.J
pressed, the pillow should be put ln,
care being taken to work lt down
well to the corners. The real pressing, by the way, lf an embroidered
top is used, should be done before the
back ls basted on, leaving just a final
"rub off" for afterward. As embroidery must always be pressed on
the wrong side, and preferably on
some soft, thick substance, the iron
should be slipped Inside the cover. Be
sure, flrst, that lt ls not hot enough
'o scorch.
After the pillow Is ln, the cover
may have the open edges neatly bllnd-
stltched together, or they can be
turned back, whipped to prevent fraying and fastened with small hooka
and    buttonholed    loops.

the cold water closes the pores, preventing your taking cold.

bhould be used In moderation, say
several times n week, until the hair Is

when the color needs renewing.

There are many ways to keep superfluous hair In subjection, but not
bo many to do away with It perma-
riontiv.   If the  growth on your arms
is not too thick or-long, the simplest
way is to bleach it with peroxide of
hydrogen, which will render it almost
invisible. Should this not do for your
purpose, I shall be glad to suggest
something else.
The following exercise will help
greatly in reducing your hips:
To Reduce the Hips.

The Housemothers' Exchange
Cultivating a Sense of Fitness
A WOMAN must have an artistic
soul to really dress well. Not
that every artist could pose as a
model of the perfectly gowned woman.
Tod often her very sense of color and
admiration of classic lines lead to a
bizarre and unconventional form of
dress that may be according to the
canons of the academic, but ls hopelessly at odds with prevailing styles. For,
disclaim her power as one mny, no
woman can afford to totally disregard
the mandates of Fashion—provided that
she aspires to being well dressed.
Slavish observance of the prevailing
modes is bad, but it Is a question If too
great originality in clothes ls not worse.
There Is such a thing as excessive Individuality. Outre dressing ls always to
be avoided. Better, far better, be a
human fashion-plate than an eccentric
extremist who achieves startling novelty at the expense of becomingness and
good taste.
The present season has a certain danger from the very liberty of selection.
That liberty must never be permitted
to degenerate into license; as one
woman remarked, "you can wear anything you like this winter and still be
In the style." So you can, if you are
sure you like suitable things.
Right here does the truly artistic temperament get its innings. The happy
possessor of it has a well-developed
sense of fitness. She realizes her physical shortcomings and appreciates what
manner of dress Is or is not becoming.
Wild extremes and undue originality
are barred out as rigidly as would be
loud and garish colors or cheap finery.
The artistic woman knows that
well-gowned means becomingly
gowned. Never, were she a dumpy,
rotund, florid daughter pf Eve, would
ahe be guilty of donning a huge picture hat overloaded with immense
plunies, a costume just one degree
more bouffant than her neighbor's
(Often with trimming horizontally
arranged), of a vivid hue warranted
to accentuate every  ugly  purole "nt
In her complexion, and then complacently deem herself well dressed.
She realizes that not even If labeled
conspicuously with that cabalistic
sentence, "Made In Paris," could rhe
hope to make the ordinary observer
deem her anything but. a guy.
The artistic sense Ttorblds plumes
floating at impossible angles on the
shoulder, over the ears, or obscuring
the nose—one seen this season on a
woman old enough to know better
fell far below the hips—or that even
more hldeour fashion of standing
rearlngly erect like a drum major's
insignia. It also teaches that feathers whicli look as lf they had been
caught ln a cloudburst with never a ,
chance to dry off, form a trying frame
for the most youthful beauty.
The art-feeling gives its possessor
the intuitive sense that period costumes, in the heyday of popularity
though they be, should be eschjfcwed
by the woman who cannot afford the
best designers; doubly so, must her
clothes do duty a second season.
It teaches her that trying color
tones, accentuated slopli.g shoulders,
overindulgence In trim ,s, eccentricities of cut and bizarre materials
should be religiously avoided. These
things stamp the date of one's clothes
for tne woman with a small allowance, and luy even her wealthy sister
open to criticism as lacking In the
innate refinement which ever forbids
the best modiste can but point the
way; the final selection remains with
her patron. Dressmakers are too
often condemned when one's own
sense of fitness ls at fault.
Remember, you who lack the art-
feeling that largely prevents mistakes,
that conventionality, rather than originality, pays best in the selection of
clothes. Exaggeration is unattractive and bad form. To aim at striking effects too often means to attr.in
absurdity of appearance and the ruli
of r-eautlful  and  cosily  materials.
ONE    more    true-hearted    woman
asks leave to answer the letter
of    the    business    woman   who
shrinks from  stepping into the
ranks of housewives and homemakers:
As 1 reau the long stery tolil oy "_. R.
T.," with its undertone of seltlshness, I
could heartily .vnn atnlze with the stepmother who was sensible enough co see
that the gill was naturally fitted for office wuik. Ac_.rj.lng to "E, R. T.'s" own
confession, she "detests kitchen drudgery."
For my part. I  think Mhe should be profoundly grateful to her stepmother for her
Kntience   and   the   lm.uence   that   got   her
u«ibanc"s child into a gcod position.
That young lover would be wise lf he
were to look elsewhere ror a helpmeet.
The "longing for a real home" is the
noblest insi lratlon of a true man—the only
feeling that holds him to loyalty to hie
wife. She who depreciates that feeling in
her betrothed, and who Is willing to i ass
her married life in a "nice, boarding houae,"
lc not a Ittlng mate for such a man. She
is best suited for office work, and should
be thankful to get her "120 per."
I was a teacher before my marriage. 1
loved my profession, and I did not love
"kitchen drudgery-" Yet I have found my
sweete t pleasure in keeping my house in
the beat possible order, and in having my
kitchen clean and cozy, it must be an attractive place, for the whole family. Including son-in-law and grandson, congregate about the kitchen range every morning, sometimes before breakfast Is ready.
Girls like "E. R. T." (and the number is
increasing) rob themselves of the dearest
Jo: s that crme into a woman's life. God
wills ue to he homemakers. and when we
fulfil our duties as He expects us to do,
as nearly as we can—each itanding in
her lr* anl doing her best—He blesses us
with   "1""  u,-p".-i'-b,« "
Mrs.  J.   B.   R.   (Nashville,  Tenn.).
Our correspondent monks ihe words of
truth and wisdom when she says solemnly that God has willed women to be
homemakers. Men may establish States
and govern empires. The man has not
yet been born who could make and keep
a home.
Oh, I know what I am saying. Men
are better cooks than women when
they give their minds to the profession.
They Invent our household implements
and labor-saving machines. They make
our clothes and tell us how to wear
them. As housemothers and homemakers they are dismal failures. It must be
acknowledged that they show their good
sense bv seldom stte-nDtlnp- ibis »—*uch
of the impossible. Tbey build the house.
It ls the wife and mother who brings
into It the genius of tht home, ae the
Creator breathed into the perfect form
He had framed the breath of life, and it
became a living soul. Our Tennessee
woman does not exaggerate the glorious
truth in calling the mission of the
homemaker "the dearest joy of life.
The lover of home and country may
well consider with grave uneasiness the
increase in the number of young women
who are trying to satisfy hearts and
minds with what they falsely rate as
higher ambitions.
Recipe for Nut Bread.
I am about to commit a very reprehen-
S—le act, for which I humbly sue for pardon. Some one (and herein lies my sin for
not putting that some one's Initials on 1 a-
per at once) asked for the reclie for nut
bread. I lid not think I had saved the :e-
cii.e, although I remembered seeing it ,n
your paper. In rummaging through my library table drawer today, I came across
said red; e   and hasten to send you a tup.':
Nutbread. — Four cups entire wheat
flour; four teaspoonfuls of baking poweer;
one teaspoonful of salt; three teaspoon.u,s
of sugar; one cup of nuts, broken not too
fine; sweet milk to make stiff cough that
can be managed with a Broon. Let it rise
from twenty minutes to one-half hour in
brick loaf pan, covered with same Kind or
pan.   Bake, covered, for about pn hour.

Two or more of our members have
asked for the same recipe.
A Budget of "Helps andi-Iints."
A perplexed would-be home dressmaker wrote a while ago for directions
how to make the skirt of a gown hang
smoothly and straight. 1 replied, upon
the authority of a "professional," that
one may buy an apparatus Invented for
the purpoBe at any shop where Dressmakers' supplies are kept. Our helper
and hinter tells of another way:    .
'lack ine skirt on to the body; hook and
eye il; stanu a yarustick up in Iront of
the skirt as It is held up; 6tlck a pin or
make a chalk mark at the top of the yardstick, and move the latter around -he waist,
keeping the stick exactly perpendicular, and
ilaclng the pin., at the top of the rtick.
This done, lay the skirt fiat on the table.
Wecln   al   **"-   fr-.r>t    I lncing   the   tor -*'   "*ia
sticks at pins or chalk line. Move gradually around the skirt as belore, ant. eiuier
pin or chalk a second row at bottom of tne-
skirt, following the stick.
. If you, '.vish to hem the skirt, allow two.
or three Inches below the bottom row or
pine or marks. If you wish the ekl:t la
clear the Iioor by one Inch, put the lower
row of "markers" thirty-five inches bi low
the upper row.
For a young girl's skirt lhat clears the,
ground by ten Inches, chalk a line twenty-
six inches from the top or hip chalk line.
This mav sound difficult, but It Is really
simple. If done rlgjit all you have to do 1*
to cut off the skirt at the lower line, or
turn your tiem there. _.__.__.
The difference in the length of a skirt lain the hips, and thia difference Is below the-
yardstick. ,
For hanging waists or children's frocka.
In a small closet suspend woolen skirt
braid in lengths of a yard and a-half from
the shelves. At Intervals of six Inches fasten stout safety i Ins, and fasten the garments by the neck bands to these pins.
To clean s ains from the bowls of bathrooms and closets: ,.    ,   .
Use a few diops of muriatic acid. Let
out the suiplus water, and apply the acla
with a swab; then flush the bowl well, aha
acid ls a poison, and should not be usetf
hy carelcSB rersons or children. Hang the
swab up to dry where it will not touch any
thing. E. M.  S   ICedar Rai ids.  la.).
Poultice for Colds.
Will the kind mother who told us of her
poultice lor colds repeat It? 1 meant to sav»

recall   only  that  It had  In It camphorated

Not to keep you waiting too Ioir
while the "kind mother" sees and answers your request, let me tell you that
an excellent application to children's*
throats and chests when these are affected Is a piece of red flannel, folded,
several times, soaked In camphorated,

Co-operative Plan for Servants
Breaking Engagements
DON'T know why Clarence doesn't
come. Here I've waited an hour
for him and we're late for the
play already." And Stella looked on
the verge of tears.
"Oh my dear, he'll come soon
enough," _tunt Dora rearsurcd her,
"something's kept him, surely."
But Clarence did not come, and Stella
waited all the evening in vain. In
the morning came a contrite note that
said: "Really I forgot all about it!"
But not even the beautiful roses that
accompanied the missive could help
Stella forget or forgive.
Clarence Is a very usual young person. He always "forgets." He promises to come to a dance, and then
leaves his intended partner ln the
lurch. Sometimes he "forgets" to
answer tho invitation, and then his
hostess ls forced to make useless
preparations. He tells Ned Collins to
meet him at the club, and Ned wanders disconsolately around for an
hour and then phones to hear Clarence's, surprised "Why, have I aa engagement with you?"
Clarence, however, Is not the only
offender. Clarissa is even worse. She
promises George Martin to be home
on Monday night, and then goes to
Cella Dobson's chafing dish party.
She tells Mary Stlllwell that she will
eat luncheon with her at the Metro-
pole, and then meets Mr. Evans on her
way and goes with him. Instead. She
has even been known to start for an
appolntrhent at the doctor's and spend
the afternoon shopping because she
passed Fairplay anri Lowprlce's on
her way. s
Neither Clarence nor Clarissa ls intentionally rude. Neither of them
means to make enemies wherever he
or she goes. But slowiy their circle of
friends iB growing smaller; slowly
they are being invited less and less.
And when Clarence and Clarissa
nave no one on whom to rely but each
other, there will be a clJinox indeed!
. Putting Money in
the Mouth
THERE Is a woman in Paris who,
until quite recently, made a good
living as a "swallower." If she
saw a piece of money dropped she immediately picked It up and asked .permission of the owner to bite it "for luck."
When this was granted, she promptly
swallowed the coin.
Few of us would wish to follow her
example—even without the prison cell
in which she is now reposing —but
many of us do so Involuntarily, lf you
put a coin smaller than a half dollar in
your mouth, there Is, by statistics, Just
one chance ln seven that you will not
swallow lt. And, unless you agree witn
the professor who, when his wife excitedly cried that she had swallowed a
dime, merely replied, "Never mind, my
dear, here ls another one," It ls unlikely that you are anxious for the experience.
But, even lf the coin goes no farther
than your lips, you are doing an unwise and dangerous thing, lt Is almost
unbelievable that a woman of refinement can place between her lips a piece
of metal that haB passed through as '
many hands, some filthy and diseased,
as has an ordinary coin.
Yet everywhere ls found the woman
who habitually places money between
her lips while closing her bag, buttoning her coat, etc. Sometimes she will
act thus with change, coming from
hands that lt would make her sick to
touch. She will even drop a coin to
the dirty pavement, pick lt up and replace lt.
They told us once that this almost
criminal habit was on the decrease;
that never again would "fair woman
thus desecrate her ruby lips." And
fair woman thereupon smiled, and
placed between those ruby lips a dark
and greasy piece of something more
than dirty nickel.
But—if every coin were accompanied
»y a microscopel
A CHANGE   came  over  Margaret's face as her eye fell
upon    the    account    book
open before me and the Utile pile of bills beside it.
A change that impressed me disagreeably. By some subtle law of
intuition I divined on the instant
that the woman was not wasteful,
but dishonest, and that she expected to be arraigned upon that count.
Her -tpression was uneasy, shifty,
defiant. I could almost hear the
slatternly sister's whine and the
children's importunities for a share
in what was to be had for the asking from the aunt "who lived like
a lady." In a twinkling, too, I asked
myself if I would have had the
moral courage, were I in her place,
to withhold bit and sup from my
own flesh and blood. The query softened heart and tone.
"Margaret," I began, gravely, but
gently, "I have been looking over
last week's bills, and, indeed, the
bills of the last three months. I a*_
wondering if we cannot ^etwe.gij us
hit upon a way of making them
"It'c all been ate, fair and honest, in this house, mum." the girl
broke in here. "May I never meet
me Maker if vhat I say ain't true
as I am standin' here!"
I went on as if she _ ad not
"You know that Mr. Sterling allows me $23 a week for ta'Jc -x-
penscs. I told him that this wo-uld
be enough, nnd I have no right to
go beyond it. I have a right to live
as for within it as I choose. Now,
here is my plan. You and I will put
-our senses to work to see if we cannot save, say, a couple of dollars
each week out of our allowance, dividing what we save between us. If
we spend only $24, I give you 60
cents and keep 50 for mycelf. If
We can save $2, we pocket a dollar
apiece. It may be that, once in «
great while, when fruit and eggB,
butter and vegetables are at the
cheapest, we may set a good table
for $20 per week. Of course, when
we have company we can save but
little. In that case, what we put by
shall be yours. It is but fair that
I, who have the enjoyment of my
friends' society, should pay for it,
and you should have some extra pay
for your work."
While all this was in saying, my
auditor stood like a statue of
amazed incredulity—jaw drooping
and eyes distrustful. As plainly as
if her skull had been transparent
glass, I read the working of the
slow brain. Like most of her guild,
the first and foremost question
upon taking in the import of any
proposed innovation upon established household usage was: "What
does she mean to make out of me,
and for herself, in all this? Won't
I be playing into her hand and
cheating myself if I give into her
notion V
I had heijrd the adage, "A livin'
out gurrel must look out for herself in this wicked world," too often
not to guess correctly at the meaning of hesitation and silence.
I purred on as placidly as a well-
fed house tabby, to give her time
in which to collect her scattered
"One thing must be understood
from Ihe first: I must set a good
table always. There must bj no
scrimping and no meanness. You
have a talent for using left-overs
to advantage, and I have a gift in
the wny of made dishes. Together
we can do wonders in that line. In-'
stead of buying fresh meat and
bones every other day for soup
stock, we will mnke a study of cream
soups and of broths made of the
bones left from roasts nnd of vegetables. Our rule shall be 'Throw
nothing away that can be used in
any way.' You can go now, Margaret. Think the matter over at
your leisure, and if you decide to
join my joint stock company, let
me know by-and-by."
At 1'incheon time she informed
me very Boberly, ihe distrustful
shaduw still lingering in heJr eyes,
that she had "made up her mind to
thry the strange plan for a fort-
ni-ht a* atm- rate Tf 80 {»it didn't
woork straight there'd be no bonet
broke." She never suspected that
she would have lost her place and
the perquisites upon which her pensioners were fattening if she had.
givon a negative decision.
As I had apprehended, her temp- -
tation was to shorten supplies and I
impoverish our daily fare.    There
may have been the lurking intention  to  continue her benefactions
of food to her relatives, and, also,
to help them with her savings from
the joint stock company.    I  soon
made her comprehend that this part
of the letter of the agreement was
not to be violated, and her wits rallied to meet the necessities of the
case.   At the end of the first week
of the trial fortnight she rtceived
75 cents as her share   of   what I
pleased  her   by  calling  our   "dividend."    The second week she pocketed $1.  I showed her the bills and
the sum total upon my book, and
tue thirst for gain, never dormant
in the least provident of her class,
awoke powerfully within her. When
she learned,  the   second   wok   of
Juno, that we had cleared $5.50 between us in the   Inst   seven   days,,
tears irrigated a smiling face.   Eu-
couraged by our success, I took her
into my counsels when we laid in
our winter supply of coal in June.
I was sure, I said, that she could
save at least two tons between November and Mnrch.   I should order-
two tons less than I had bought last
year,   and   if   she   made   it   last
throughout Ihe winter I would pay
her in tho spring the price of ono
ton.    The  oonl lasted  two months
longer thnn the same quantity had
ever served us before.
Margaret was rnnried in May. Sfio
told me confidentially at our parting thnt sho "had explained tho
j'int company stock business to
Mike, and that he was quite agray-
ablo to the idea of thrying it in
their housekeeping." ■
I have often wondered if they
did, and how it worked.
