A score ot peopte came up the hill
from Pleasant valley that night. Tunk
went after tbo old maids and came
witb them in the chaise at supper time.
There were two wagon loads of young
people, and before dusk men and their
wives came sauntering up the roadway aud ln at the little gate.
Two or three of the older men wore
suits of black broadcloth, the stock and
rolling collar—relics of "old decency"
back in Vermont or Massachusetts or
Connecticut Most were in rough
homespun over white shirts with no
cuffs or collar. All gathered about
Darrel, wbo sat smoking outside the
door. He rose and greeted each one of
the women with a bow and a compliment. The tinker was a mau of unfailing courtesy, and one thing in him was
extremely odd—even there In that land
of pure democracy—he treated a scrubwoman with the same politeness he
would have accorded tbe finest lady.
But he was ln no sense a flatterer.
None that saw him often were long in
Ignorance of that His rebuke was
even quicker tban his compliment, aa
many had reason to know
Half an hour before dark the yard
was thronged with people. They listened, with smiles or a faint ripple of
merry feeling, as he greeted each.
"Good evening, Mrs. Beach," he
would say. "Ah, tbe snow Is falling on
thy head. An' tbe sunlight upon thine,
dear girl," he added, taking tbe baud
of the woman's daughter.
"An' here's Mr. Tilly back from the
far west" be continued. "How fare
ye, sor?"
"I'm well, but a little too fat," said
Thurston Tilly.
"Well, sor, unless It make tby heart
heavy, be content.
"Good evening Mrs. Hooper. That
Is a cunning band witb tbe pies.
"Ah, Mrs. Rood, may the mouse never leave thy meal bag with a tear In bis
"Not a gray bair ln thy head, Miss
Tower, nor even a gray thought.
"An' here's Mrs. Barbour. 'Twill
make me sweat to carry me pride now.
How goes the battle?"
"The Lord has given me sore affliction," said sbe.
"Nay, dear woman," said the tinker
In that tone so kindly and resistless.
Ke stood with hi* armt around the two.
"do uot think tbe Lord ls bitting thee
over tbe ears.   It is tbe law o' life.
"Good evening, elder. Wbat Ib the
difference between tby work an'
"I hadn't thought of tbat"
"Ah, thine ls tbe dial of eternity,
mine tbat o' time." And so he greeted
all and sat down, filling his pipe.
"Now, Weston, out with the merry
fiddle," eald be, "an' see It gives ue
bappy thoughts."
"Do you see that acar?" be heard
Tilly saying.
"I do, sor."
'   "Well, a man shot me there."
|   "An' wbat for?" the tinker Inquired.
"I was telling him a story. It cured
me.   Do you carry a gun?"
"I do not, sor."
"Waal, then, I'll tell you about the
man I work for." _j
Tunk, wbo bad been outside the door
In his best clothes, but who, since be
put them on, had looked as If he doubted the integrity of his suspenders and
would not come in the house, began to
laugh loudly.
"Tbat man Tunk cnn see the comedy
ln all but bimself," was Trove's
thought as he returned witb a smile
of amusement
Soon Trove and Polly came out and
stood by the lilac bush at tbe gate.
"You worry me, Sidney Trove," said
Ihe, looking off at the moonlit 6>>u*
Ttten came a 'silence full of secret
things like tbe silences of their first
meeting there by the same gate loug
ago. This one, however, had a vibration that seemed to sting tbem.
"I am sorry," said he with a sigh.
Another silence in which the heart
of the girl was feeling for the secret in
"You are so sad, so different," sbe
Polly waited full half a minute for
his answer. Then she touched her eyes
with her handkerchief, turned impatiently and went halfway to the door.
Darrel caught her baud, drawing her
near him.
"Give me thy hand, boy," said he to
Trove, now on his way to the door.
He stood with bis arms around tbe
"Every Bhadow hath the wings o'
light," be whispered.  "Listen."
The house rang with laughter and the
music of "Money Musk."
"'Tis tbe golden bell of happiness,"
said he presently. "Go an' ring it
Nay—first a kiss."
He drew tbem close together, and
they kissed each other's lips and with
smiling faces went ln to join the dance.
AGAIN the middle of September
and the beginning of the fall
^ term. Trove had gone to his
old lodgings at Hillsborough,
and Polly was boarding ill the village,
for she, too, was now In the uphill
road to higher learning. None save
Darrel, who gave her the youug man's
money, knew his secret—that he was
paying ber board and tuition, unknown
to her. The thought of it made him
most happy, but now seeing her every
day bad given bim a keener sense of
that whlcb had come between them.
He sat much in bis room and had little
heart for studj^ It was a cozy room
now. His landlady bad hung rude pictures on the walls and given bim a rag
carpet. On the table were pieces of
clear quartz aud tourmaline and about
each window frame odd nests of bird
Or Insect souvenirs of wood life and
bis travel with the drove. There, too,
on the taWe were mementos of that
first day of his teaching, the mirror
spectacles with which he bad seen at
once every corner of the schoolroom,
tbe slung shot nnd bar of iron he had
taken from tbe woodsman Leblanc.
One evening of his flrst week at
Hillsborough tbat term Darrel Came to
sit wltb bim awhile.
"An' what are these?" said the tinker
at length, bis baud upon tbe shot and
"I do not know."
"Dear boy," said Darrel, "they're
from tbe kit of a burglar, an' bow
came they here?"
"I took them from Louis Leblanc,"
eaid the young man, wbo then told of
bis adventure tbat night.
"Louis Leblanc!" exclaimed Darrel.
"The scamp an' his family have cleared
The tinker turned quickly, his hand
upon the wrist of the young man.
"These things are not for thee to
have," he whispered. "Had ye no
thought o' the danger?"
Trove began to change color.
"I can prove how I came by tbem,"
be stammered.
"What Is tby proof?" Darrel whispered again,
"There are Leblanc's wife and daughter."
"Ah, where are they? There be
mauy would like to know."
The young man tbougbt a moment
"Well, Tunk HoBely, there at Mrs.
"Tunk Hosely!" exclaimed tbe tinker,
witb a look that seemed to say: "God
save the mark! An' would they believe blm, think?"
Trove began to look troubled aa Darrel left blm.
"I'll go and drop them ln the river,"
snld Trove to himself.
It was 11 o'clock and tbe street dark
and deserted as he left bis room.
"It ls a cowardly thing to do," the
young man thougbt as he walked slowly, but be could devise no better way
to get rid of them.
In the middle of the big, open bridge
he stopped to listen. Hearing only the
sound of the falls below, Trove took
the odd tools from under bis coat and
flung them over the rail. He turned
then, walking slowly off tbe bridge and
up tbe main Btreet of Hillsborough.
At a corner be stopped to listen. His
ear bad caught the sound of steps far
behind blm. He could hear lt no longer and went his Woy with a troubled
feeling tbat robbed him of rest that
ni£bt.— In j^day or'^wijjt wor? off,
una so—1 ne was noia or tmi•• o**t, as
he was wont to say, and racing for the
lead in his work. He often walked to
school with Polly anil went to church
with her every Suuday night. There
had been not a word of love between
them, however, since they came to the
village until one evening she said:
"I am very unhappy, and I wish I
were home."
Sbe was not abla to answer for a
"I know I am unworthy of you," she
His lungs shook blm with a deep and
tremulous Inspiration. For a little he
could not answer.
"Thot Is wby you do not love me?"
she whispered again.
"I do love you," be said, with a strong
euort to control himself, "but I am not
woitby to touch the hem of your garment."
"Tell me why, Sidney."
"Some day—I do not know when—I
will tell you all. And If you can love
me after that we shall both be happy."
"Tell me now," she urged.
"I cannot," said he. "But If you only
trust me, Polly, you shall know. If
you will not trust me"—
He paused, looking at tbe snow path.
"Good night!" he added presently.
They kissed and parted, each going
to tbe company of bitter tears.
As of old, Trove bad many a friend-
schoolfellows who came of an evening
now and then for bis help iu some
knotty problem. All saw a change in
him. He had not the enthusiasm and
good cheer of former days, and some
ceased to visit him. Moreover, they
were free to say that Trove was getting a big head. For oue thing, he had
become rather careless about bis
clothes, a new trait ln him, for he had
tbe gift of pride and the knack of neatness.
A new student sought bis acquaintance the very flrst week of the term,
that rather foppish young man who got
off the cars at Hillsborough tbe day of
their flrst coming. He was from Buffalo and, although twenty-two years of
age, was preparing to enter college.
His tales of the big city and his frank j
good fellowship made him a welcome !
guest. Soon he was known to all as
Dick, his name being Richard Roberts.
It was not long before Dick knew everybody and everybody knew Dick, Including Polly, and thought him a fine
fellow. Soon Trove came to know that
when he was detained a little after
school Dick went home with Polly.
That gave him no concern, however,
until Dick ceased to visit him and he
saw a change ln the girl.
One day two letters came for Trove.
They were in girlish penmanship and
bore no signature, but stung him to the
"For heaven's sake get a new bat,"
said one.
"You are too handsome to neglect
your clothes," said the other.
As he read them his cheeks were
burning witb his shame. He went for
his hat and looked lt over carefully. It
was faded, and there was a little rent
in the crown. His boots were tapped
and mended, bis trousers threadbare
at tbe knee, and there were two
patches on his coat
"I hadn't thought of lt," said he, with
a sigh. Tben he went for a talk with
"Did you ever see a more shabby
looking creature?" he Inquired as Darrel came to meet him. "I am so ashamed of myself I'd like to go lie tn your
wood box while I talk to you."
" 'What hempen homespun bave we
swaggering here?' " Darrel quoted In a
rallying voice.
"I'll tell you," Trove began.
"Nay, flrst a rouudcl," said the tinker, as be began to shufile bis feet to the
measure of an old fairy song.
"If one were on his way to the gallows, you would make blm laugh," said
Trove, smiling.
"An I could, so would I," said the
old man. "A smile, boy, hath ln it
'some relish o' salvation.' Now, tell
me, what Is tby trouble?"
"I'm going to leave school," said
"An' wherefore?"
"I'm sick of tbls pinching poverty.
Look at my clothes. I thought I could
make them do, but I can't"
He put the two notes ln Darrel's
hand. Tbe tinker wiped his spectacles
and then read them both.
"Tut tut, boy!" said be presently,
with a very grave look.   "Have ye forgotten tbe tatters tbat were as a badge
of honor an' success?   Weeks ago I
planned to find thee better garments; I
but, on my word, I bad no heart for lt. !
Nay, these old ones had become dear !
to me.   I was proud o' tbem.   Aye, boy, !
proud o' them.   When I saw the first
patch on thy coat, eaid I, 'it ls the little ensign a' generosity.'   Then came
another, an', said I, 'That la for houor
an' true love,' an' these bare threads-
there ls no loom can weave tho like o'
them.   Nay, boy," Darrel added, lifting
an arm of tlio young mau and kissing
one of tho patches, "be not ashamed o'
these.  They're beautiful, aye, beautiful.
Tbey stand for the dollars ye gave
Trove turned away, wiping his eyes.
He looked down at liis cont and
trousers and began to wonder If be
were, Indeed, worthy to wear them,
"I'm not good enough for tliem," said
he,_.'.bu_t >.qu've, l«:t new heart Into me,
afld I B-all'not give up. ' I'll' wear*T_-n
as long as I can make them do, and
girls can say what tbey please."
"The magpies!" said Darrel. "When
they have a thought for every word
tbey utter, there'll be then a second
Sabbath ln the week!"
Next evening Trove went to see
As he was leaving she held bis hand
In both of hers anil looked down, blushing deeply, ns lf there were something
she would sny hail she the courage.
"What ls It, Polly?" said he.
"Will you—will you le>t me buy you
a new hut?" said she soberly aud hesitating much between words.
He thought a moment, biting his lip.
"I'd rather you wouldn't, Polly," sain
lie, looking down at tbe failed bat "I
know it's shabby; but, after all, I'm
fond o' tbe old thing. I love good
clothes, but I can't afford them now"
Then he bade her good night and
came away.
(To Be Continued'
Grapa Fruit Mixed With Celery, Apple
and Banana.
A delicious and unusual salad ls
made of celery and grape fruit
Cut the iuuer and crlspest stalks of
celery into half Inch lengths. Skin a
banana and cut It Into neat cubes. Do
the same with a tender tart npple. (A
"snow apple" would be good for this
purpose.) Have ready a couple of
halved grape fruit, from which you
have removed all tbe pulp so carefully
that you have not torn the skin of either half.
Cut tbe pulp taken from one of tbe
halves Into small pieces ln size corresponding to the apple and banaua dice.
Put all these into a chilled bowl aud
set on the ice or in a very cold place
for half an hour. Tou do not n«ed to
be reminded that the maycnualse
should be made first of all and left out
In the cold while you are preparing tbe
rest of tbe ingredients.
The emptied halves of the grape
fruit should lie ln lee (cracked) until
you are ready to make ready for serving.
Then empty, wipe and fill them wltb
the fruit mixture as soon ae you bave
poured tlie mayonnaise Into tbe bowl
and tossed the contents up ll_.htly with
a sliver fork to Insure thorough Incorporation of fruit and dressing.
Put a balf teaspoonful of tbe mayonnaise on the top of each portion of
fruit and serve the filled skins upon
small plates.

Among the various causes for crossness of children are some very common ones, such as hunger or thirst
Improper sleep, overeating, uncomfortable clothing and the pernicious feeding of sweets.

Indians of the Dominion Are Making
Much  Progress.
Our Indian population is commonly associated in the public mind with
the prairies of the Central West, with
the forests of the Far North, anel with
the Pacific Coast of British Columbia.
True, these parts contain a majority
of Canada's redmen, and yet one-third
of our Indians are to be found in tha
older provinces east of Lake Superior.
The total Indian population of Canada is 109,394, of whom 88,680 ara
treaty Indians, and 20,714 live outside,
of treaty limits. In this element of
population British Columbia .leads,
with 24,997, but the old Province of
Ontario comes second with 23,728,
which is three times as many as there
are in Manitoba, and about twice aa
many as in Quebec. In the two new;
prairie provinces of Alberta and 8as^
katchewan there are 12,937 Indians,
and in the Maritime Provinces 4,164.
Last year the total natural increases
was 182; by migratory fluctuations:
there was an increase of 150. The
largest, increase by births was in Ontario, among the Indians living comfortably on farms.
The Wild,  Fres Life.
It is to the Indians of the West that
one naturally looks for the wild, freei
life associated with the wigwam ami
the chase, but there is comparatively
little of that life left—practically
none as it exists in the frontier stories of thirty years ago. The Indians
now reside on their reserves, no longer <ian they chase the buffalo over
the plains because the buffalo has
disappeared, and the prairies are being cut up into farms and crossed
here and there by railways. There are
no more tribal wars, no more war
parties seeking glory in the form of
murder, but law and order, of which
to the Indian the Mounted Police is
the embodiment, are ever present,
and must be obeyed. The reports of
the Indian agents now deal with commonplace matters such as the Indian's
health, his mode of living, his improvement in education and morals,
the condition of his home, and how
life in general goes with him.
Indians  and   Farming.
Running through these reports, and!
especially through those dealing with
the agencies in the West, is the hope
that the Indian will take more kindly
to fanning. As settlement increases
his hunting grounds become curtailed; there is no longer the buffalo to>
supply him with meat, and he must
learn to raise cattle, and grow wheat.
"The real progress of the Indian,"
writes one of the agents, "depends on
his adherence to the soil and its cultivation, and to the raising of cattle
and other stock, its natural adjunct,"
Again this agent writes: "I am directing the Indians' attention from tho.
lines of industries the whit* man calla
sport—shooting, fishing and hunting-—
and leading the Indian to the sure,
and safe lines of mixed farming."
A Peculiar Characteristic.
"A peculiar characteristic of the
Indian," to quote again, "is that ona
is never sure of him. He may be an
industrious, promising Indian to-day,
and to-morrow it mny be a thing of
the past. Something happens, not
very much, but he is gone; he has
taken his horses, his wife and family.
The rest of his property he leaves to
take care of itself."
But progress is being made, and it
is encouraging that the tendency is in
the right direction. Gleanings from
the reports show this. One agent
writes that his Indians are making
some improvement in farming, but
that it is difficult to get them to work
systematically. Another agent says
that they are poor tillers of the soil,
but that they take fair care of stock.
Indians   Accomplishing  Something.
And yet the Indians last year accomplished something in agriculture.
Throughout Canada they had 47,965
acres under cultivation; of grain and
root crops they raised 1,405,570 bushels; of hay 118,000 tons, and the total
value of their agricultural products
was $1,142,347, being an increase of
$13,082 over the value of the crops of
the preceding year. In wages they
earned $1.7-*.SP*',

Causes of the Gigantic Craters and
Great Fissure Eruptions.
It is evident to any one who glances
upward at the moon that Its volcanoes
are on an Immensely larger scale than
those which stud our globe. One explanation, now abandoned, Is that the
force of gravitation being there only
one-sixth that of the earth the matter
expelled from a crater would be spread
far more widely, and explosions would
be generally on a far more magnificent
scale. Professor Pickering quotes this
theory only to refute It ln some comparisons which be made between the
great volcanic region of Hawaii and
cue of the smaller craters of the moon.
The facts seem to him to be that tbe
larger craters on the moon came Into
existence when the thin, solid crust
covering the molten Interior wns, owing to tbe solidification and contraction
of the crust, much too small to contain
the liquid material. The craters were
therefore formed by the lava bursting
through the crust and so relieving tbe
pressure. Later, after this relief had
been found and tbe crust bad thickened, the interior regions by cooling
shrank away from tbe solid shell,
which was now too large and, being
Insufficiently supported, caved In, permitting the great fissure eruptions
which produced the so called lunar
seas. These extensive outflows of lava
dissolved the original solid shell whenever they came Into contact with It,
much as they do ln the present day in
Hawaii. Had the moon been much
smaller these eruptions might not have
occurred at all, and lf the moon had
been much larger their relative size
would have been greater. Most probably on the earth similar outbursts were
greater, and our original gigantic craters were destroyed by the outflow of
the earlier archaic rocks which completely submerged and dissolved them.

Long Distance Skee Races.
As a test of skill, strength and en.
durance It would be difficult to beat
the long distance skee races ln Norway
and Sweden. Of these contests the
most severe Is undoubtedly the twelve
mile race over the mountains which
opens the great annual "Snow Derby"
at Hnlmcnkollen. about four miles
from C-rlstlanla. In this race, which
begins with a steep ascent of 400 to
500 feet, the skee lobner bas to jump
clefts and ravines, to bop over fallen
tree trunks and overcome every kind
of obstacle that man eaa devise; to
rush down steep declivities and to
make his devious way through mountain forests until be reaches the goal,
triumphant, but utterly exhausted.
Considering the arduous nature of
these contests, some of the performances are remarkable. Thus the winner of nn International speed (competition held at Stockholm covered the
course of rorty miles at an average
spi—d of eight and one-half miles an
Sunflower Most Deceitful of Plants.

"Is the most deceltfnl of all plants, foi

believe that the sunflower turns townrd the sun, nnd so thoroughly are
they deluded that they call It by n
name which bears witness to their error. Thus, the French call the sunflower tournesol; the Spanish cnll It
glrnsol; the. Italians call lt glrasole:
the Hmijt'arlans call lt naptnforgo
Each of these words means 'turn to
the sun.' The English nnd Americans
don't go quite thnt fnr In admitting
themselves to be the plant's dupes
Tbey only call lt sunflower. Thev
mean b.v that name, though, quite np
much ns the other names Imply. The
belief ls general among six nations
thnt tho sunflower turns with the sur

matter of fact there ls onlv ono flower

How the Section Boss Got the Tool
House In the Right Spot,
About ten years before the Eastern
railroad was leased by the Bostnn aud
Maine that portion of the old road between Swampscutt and Salem was In
charge of Section Foreman Timothy
His strongest point was ln doing
Just as he was told and doing that
with energy and accuracy. So when
be was notified from Beverly by Road-
master Stevens tbat the section lengths
were to be changed and that be was to
move his tool bouse from the westerly
end of Salem ynrd to halfway between
mlleposts 15 aud 16 he started out wltb
the determination to move the house
halfway, no more, no less.
To get this halfway point he stationed one of bis men at uiilepost 15
and another at milepost 10, and at a
signal they started to walk toward
each other until they met, and to a
point opposite their meeting place tbe
shanty was moved. This method of
getting the correct distance did not
quite suit Moynaban, especially wheD
be remembered tbat one of tbe walk-
ers was taller than the other and the
other tripped several times on the way
He carried this ln his mind for nearly a year, when he met the engineers
measuring through for signals and
nsked them to tell him as they measured if his house was Just halfway or
When the measurement was taken,
the house was found to be sixty feet
nearer milepost 16 than 15, and Moynaban, on being told, remarked that he
thougbt he could fix things Just right
Later ln the year the engineer met
Moynahan ln Salem and asked him lf
his tool house was now halfway between the mlleposts.
"It is," he replied. "It's Just halfway."
"Did yon bave much trouble moving
"No trouble at all. I Just let it stay
aa it was and moved the milepost"

Unmistakable   Evidence   That   Kidney  Disease is Cured by
Medicines    of    This    Class    Do    Not
Cure—Their   Effect   Is   Weakening
Nothing could be more cruel than
to induce a weak, anaemic person
to take a purgative medicine in the
hone of finding relief. Ask any doctor and he will tell you that a purgative medicine merely gallops
through the bowels, weakening the
tender tissues. He will tell you also
that a purgative cannot possibly
cure disease or build up bad blood.
When the blood is weak and watery,
when the system is run down, a
tonic is the one thing needed—is
the only thing that will put you
right. And in all this world there
is no tonic so good as Dr. Willinms'
Pink Pills for Pnle People. Every
dose of these pills actually makes
new, rich, rod blood which fills the
veins, reaches every organ in the
body and brings henlth and strength
to weak, despondent people. Miss
Annie Beaudreau, Amherst, Magdalene Islands, Que., says. "I was
pale, my heart would palpitate violently at the least exertion, and I
suffered greatly from severe headaches. I tried several medicines
which seemed actually to leave me
worse. Then I was advised to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and a half
dozen boxes have made me as well
as ever I was. They have done me
so much good that I would like
every weak girl in the land to try
It was the new blood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually made that
restored Miss Beaudreau to health
and strength, and in the same way
they will restore all sufferers irom

his medicine did me no good I
bought a box of Dr. Chase's Kidney-

much that I kept on taking them

cured. I told the doctor I was cured,
but he would not believe me until
he examined my urine again. After
doing so he stated that I had no

Defying Dust.
THE box couch has long ago proved
its convenience. Either as an emergency bed or clothes press lt has
no equal. Indeed, lt is a piece of furniture that few housekeepers can dispense   with.
As absolute perfection ls not yet come
to earth, the box coach is not exempt
from Haws. About the only serious one,
however, Is the persistency with which
dust will sift inside, no matter how
closely  shut  Is  the  ltd.
One clever woman has just overcome
this so much to her own satisfaction
that her remedy ls worth trying.
Over the lining of the lid she tacked
white kitchen table oilcloth, with the
shining side turned in. A strip about
two Inches wide was also fastened all
around the edge, so that when the lid
was down It acted as a close flap over
the opening.
The bottom of the box was then lined
with a heavy yellow paper, which may
be easily removed and freshened.
These simple precautions are marvelous dust deflers and make lt possible
to use the couch to hold the summer
gowns or white waists without their
being wrapped, as was formerly necessary

Brush all over with beaten egg while
hot; set back in the oven to glaze for
three minutes.    Eat cold.
Cheese Pudding.
Grate cheese, and crush broken and
dried bread and crusts Into fine crumbs.
There should be two cupfuls of these
to one of cheese. Wet the crumbs with
two cupfuls of milk In which has been
dissolved a bit of soda no larger than a
lima bean. Beat two eggs light, whites
and yolks apart: whip the yolks into
the soaked crumbs with a tablespoonful of melted butter. Season with salt
and a dust of cayenne, add the frothed
whites, deftly and rapidly; bake ln a
greased pudding dish in a brisk oven,
keeping ihe dish covered until the fondu
has puffed high and ts crusty on top.
Then brown lightly and serve at once.
German Puff Balls.
Boll one cup of milk, three ounces of
butter, and five ounces of flour until
done. When partly cooled, add four
eggs, one tablespoonful of'sugar and. a
little cinnamon. Drop by teaspoonfuls
Into hot fat and serve sprinkled with

Spinach Moulds.
Boil the spinach, press out every drop,
of water and chop fine. Cook together
In a saucepan a tablespoonful of butter and two of flour. Add the spinach
with pepper and salt to taste; cook for
five minutes. Butter the Inside of muffin tins or patepans, and press tho

Homely Health Hints
I am the young mother of three children,
and do all my own work, bake my own
bread (which is always good). I use Neighbor's Yeast, for which I inclose a recipe. I
have not called In a doctor for any of my
children but once.
1. For colds I give the children a teaspoonful of castor oil and all the water they
can drink; or, if the cold be a very bad one,
a small teaspoonful of melted vaseline IB
good.   This is good for grown people, too.
2. I pound common green tea into a flno
powder and keep this on hand to sprinkle
the children with. Sometimes they get
chapped, and thia ls the best thing I know.
3. To make stove polish stick to the top
of a stove that has burned red, sprinkle
witb a few grains of sugar before blacking.   This makes it stick longer.
4. I use turpentine for burns. When ap*
piled Immediately It takes the sting out in-
stantly.   It Is also good for fresh cuts.
I thought the recipe for homemade yeast
might come In well for you. I see so much
ln your column about women trying to make
good bread without good results. This will
make good bread. Every two or three
months I make fresh yeast, as the old runs
out. DORA  (Shlster's Point,  Ontario).
In the days that are no more, all
housekeepers made their own yeast. I
may err in saying that the bread based
upon this was sweeter and more wholesome than that we have now, but I
think so, nevertheless.
Various Time and Money
Saving Hints
Those Dreadful Stockings!
YES, but they will turn up every week
as sure as the laundry is done.
But, after all, darning stockings is
not such a terrible ordeal if one will
only go at it in the right way. So many
women gaze at a big hole mournfully,
and then with a sigh, drop the darning
egg into the offending stocking and proceed to stretch the latter over the egg
until the hole has reached its utmost
capacity (Just for why it is'difficult to
discover), and then weave back and
forth, back and forth, till the hole haa
an inserted patch resembling a gridiron
(and, one would Imagine, just about as
comfortable to walk on). Many a time
has the writer pitied the little victims
of such methods.
In the flrst place (now this may sound
strange), a hole is never quite so large
os it looks. In the wash it had become
stretched and out of shape. If, then,
instead of stitching It still further over
the egg it is humored a little, the edges
being smoothed out and pulled gently
. toward each other, it will diminish perceptibly in size.
The next thing Is to find out in which
direction it has worn the most. Some
holes by a little manipulation can be reduced to a mere slit. When this is tha
case, with ordinary f"i» sewing cotton,
draw the slit evenly together, not with
overcasting, but like lacing a shoe. This
can fen be darned neatly, and it will
never oe noticed by the wearer If fine
darning cotton is used. Why do women use a cord nearly as thick as wrapping yarn to darn a material which is
woven of the finest web! There is no
doubt that many an adult can lay the
blame of corns upon the outrageous
darns with which their little feet were
tortured in childhood.
If the large hole be round, its dimensions can. be materially lessened 'by a
fine overcasting, which should be drawn
up as tight as possible short of puckering.
Lastly, if a stocking haB reached the
point where large darnS are all that
will save the day, It is far better to insert a new piece taken from the top of
an old one. An entire new sole can ba
inserted in this way, or just new toes,
and if the seams are laid flat and cat-
stitched down, they will cause no discomfort to the wearer.
To Fasten Bones in Place
FASTENING oones in place does not
oome by Inspiration. It is an art
which requires practice; but if one
proceeds as follows, it is an art which
is easily learned. Having attached securely one end of the bone to the bottom of the waist, pin that place to the
knee with the arm's eye toward the
Bewer. Pulling the goods a little tighter
than the bone, featherstitch, evenly to
the other end of the bone, taking the
thread through the outside edge of the
covering of the bone each time.
When the end has been reached,
belore fastening off Ihe thread, push
the bone somewhat, but not too
much, toward the other end, bowing it
very slightly. This is called "springing" a bone, and insures smoothness.
If sprung too much, however, the bone
will stick out at both top and bottom,
and will soon punch through. The art
consists in doing it just right. When
sprung, hold firmly and fasten securely
with a  buttonhole stitch.
If preferred, bones may be buttonholed in down each side, but it ls not
nearly so easy to do, nor does lt look
as finished when done.
Bloodstains on Sewing
HOW often it happens that one's
pretty work is marred by a bloodstain which has been left by a
pricked finger ln the most conspicuous
place! And It is very apt to be on something which one had no intention of
washing for a long while - »'•-- There
are two methods of dealing with such
spots, as blood Is readily removed by
either one of two processes. If the article thus stained ls washable, make a
lukewarm suds and dip each spot In.
But the water must be only lukewarm
and It must have soap in it.
Should the water be hot or soapless,
the spot will only be set, and will be
very hard to remove. After the spots
have been dipped in this lukewarm
suds, soap may be rubbed on with impunity, and will assist materially tn the
work. The spots, after being wet, Bhould
be rubbed between the thumbs and tin-

snry to do more Intricate stitches. For
Wallachian work, showy nnd efroctl"e
as It '«   U nothing wor" thnn tin- well'
known buttonhole stitch; a buttonholing, moreover, that needs no underlaying or padding. __,,._,
It was first Introduced last fall for
fancy work and small dress accessories, such as collar sets and belts, buv
now ls to bo much used for blouses,
parasols and whole Bults.
This work Is simplicity itself. The
designs are usually of a floral order-
such as clusters of hydrangeas or
uhlox.    more  or less conventionalized.
Each petal is divided by a lengthwise
central line, to which the buttonholing
runs. The foliage is treated in tne
sumo   wuy;   all   stems   are  done  in   a
__ heavy outline.
S That ls all there lB'*o It. It does not
sound very hard, yet it is surprising
how elaborate and striking are the re-
BUNot even the padding of ordinary buti
tonholing ls necessary, as the worK is
done  in  mercerized   floss.
[OW do you ever do It, Betty?
Tour room always looks as lf
It had Just been cleaned and
arranged for my arrival, no matter
when I come, while as for mine—well,
a cyclone would refuse to strike lt!"
"Nonsense, Laura; my neatness Is
nothing compared with Mabel's, for
Instance. Why, when she wants to
remember an engagement In the
morning she puts something a trifle
out of place the night before."
"Well, it's too much for me. How
do you both manage?"
"I'm sure I don't know about her;
but If I have any rules at all, It Ic
'Put everything back as soon as you're
through with It.' That is to say,
when I go to bed I don't leave my
things hanging around to be put away
in tho morning, but 1 do It at once.
Then, when I'm through writing at
my desk, too, I see .hat everything
is In order before I leave It. That's
all there ls to it —simply tho old
adage, 'A place for everything, and
everything In Its place.' If you'll forgive me for saying so, you know vou
don't always follow  thnt rule."
"Indeed, 1 don't," sighed Laura, e...n-
estly, "but I'm going to, even lf I
get to that point where a pin on the
floor will annoy me, and a.picture out
of plumb drive me almost Insane."
"Oh, my dear, I hope you'll never
po that far," and Betty concluded he'
gers. By this means only a small portion of the goods ls taken up and a
very small area Is wet. Of course, th-
soapy spot should be put through clear
water two or three times before it Is:
The second method of removing suc_
stains Is by means of raw starch. Dissolve starch In water, and when entirely
wet and settled to the bottom of the
vessel, with a knife take up some of.
this starch sediment and spread it urn.
the spot. When dry, scrape off. Th_.
bloodstain will probably be all gonft.
with one application. Should there stl_t
be some left, apply again, allow to dr£-
as before, and scrape off.
If the material is a delicate texture*
and the application of the starch leaves
a "water mark," this can be remove*,
but patience will be required to effect
the result. Stretch the goods smoothly,
and with a damp cloth, quite damp but
not wet, go all around the stain, smoothing away from the centre. Meanwhile
blowing on the spot will facilitate tho
process of drying, for If It !3 not dried
quickly the damp cloths will leave a
new stain. There will probably be a
new stain anyway, but it will be fainter
than the first. So that all one can do Is
to go on and on until the mark has-
faded away entirely, as it will In time
if this plan is pursued to the end.
****      To Lengthen a Skirt
WITH the present fashions there
are several ways ln which a
skirt may be lengthened without
the process being potent. There may be
a yoke set on at the top, or a ruffle put
on at the bottom, or the skirt may be
finished plain by letting down the hem.
But in any case, the work must be done
with the utmost care and neatness, and.
lt may be added, with discretion. Por
instance, it does not do to decide offhand that one will add a yoke, for a
yoke may be an impossibility—because
there is not sufficient fulness at the
band or the cut ls not suitable. 'Home
dressmakers have been known to out
out a yoke in all confidence, only te
discover, with dismay, that they could
not use it and that their spare piece of
goods had been cut Into beyond redemption.
Right here lt would be well to say
that the time s-ient in cutting and fitting paper patterns for any new Idea
is never lost. The skirt ripped from
the band and applied to the paper pattern, which has previously been pinned
ln place at the waist, will soon show
whether such an alteration will be possible. If it should be, the pattern
should still be left attached to the person and the skirt pinned or basted oi»
lt at an even length from the ground.
When removed, lt will be very easy to
see where to modify the one to fit the
other. Should the skirt, for instance,,
be found to be uneven at the top in
places, and its length be such that one
cannot well trim lt off, the lower edge,
may assume a fancy shape to fit the-.
circumstances, scalloped or pointed, for-
example, and no ono will ever know,
that the wearer was a victim of necessity.
Another way, strange as it may sum,..,
ls by means of two or three small tucks,
providing, of course, that the skirt la
only moderately short. These tucks
should be taken In the skirt proper, and
sufficient length added below, the piecing being hidden by the bottom tuck.
But  the   lengthening    which  requires
the   greatest   care    Is   that   ot   lotting^
down a hem or adding a llttle more to.,
a plain skirt which ls to have a trimming   put  at   the   bottom  to   hide   the.
lengthening.   If there Is already a crinoline facing, this should be removed and
a fresh one put on ln Buch a fashion as .
to   provide   for   the   new   length,   the
curves of tne widths being carried out
in   this   extra  length.      (In   doing  thu_H
much  basting Is the price of success.)
After   this   the   process   ls   simple   and
need  hardly  be described,   if  the  hem
provides sufficient length, a few rows of
narrow   braid   will   form   a   nice   foot
trimming, one row to run exactly over
the old hem mark.   If but llttle piecing;
Is necessary, the same braid may hide
enough of lt, for it Ib to be practically-
imperceptible; but if a broader piece be .
necessary,   the   reviving   fashion   of   a |
combination   of   materials   in   the   one
skirt leaves ample room for choice from
broad braid to contrasting plaid,

* A Sanitary Bed
ALONG time ago, when fourpostet
and curtains were things just ol
the past, no one would have
dreamed of a bedstead not of woods.
Gradually these grew simpler and tlm-
pler, and at last iron and brass one?
took their places—all this on the ground
of iiygii #,..
As a matter of fact, the mattre—j
alone can be sanitary or unsanitary. The
choico of the bedstead may be governed
simply by personal taBte.
A felt mattress Is the very best kind
to have, but If you cannot affoid it, get
a cotton one, making hair your last
choico. It Is, of course, hardly necessary
eny  longer to mention the feulherbeil.
lf your bedstead Is of wood, especially,
see that It ls often nnd thoroughly
cleaned. Yearly the dreaded "red rovers" are becoming less am) less common, but—as our friend Shaw remark J
— "You never can tell 1"
Your pillow should be light and admit
of I'Usy utrlng. Kor this reason, ulso,
uvold a bolster or a largo pillow. Tlie
bedclothes, too, should be as 1 ...ht i%
is compatible with warmth.
If you use a folding or couch bed-,
be suro the bedclothes are Well aired
before they are packed nway. And,
apropos ol this, see mat even '.uili-
robes and slippers get a good nlrlng. At
legulur lntervnls nlr the mattress #ut
of a back window.
Once a week the springs and miittressi
should be thoroughly beaten und thn
mattress turned. And, finally. If the bed-
Ftead is much ornamented, a great deal
of dusting will be necessary. r&& ADVOCATE, VANt-GrOVE-i. _l_tff4S_I <_ttLTJtali_.
