TROVE had much to help him—
youth, a cheerful temperament,
a counselor of unfailing wisdom. Long after they were
gone be recalled the sadness and worry
of those days with satisfaction, for
thereafter the shock of trouble was
never able to surprise and overthrow
After due examination he had been
kept in bail to await the action of the
grand jury, soon to meet. Now, there
were none thought bim guilty save one
or two afflicted with the evil tongue.
It seemed to him a dead Issue and
gave blm uo worry. One thing, however, preyed upon his peace—the knowledge that bis father war a thief. A
conviction was ever boring In upon him
that he had no right to love Polly. A
base Injustice it would be, he thought,
to marry her without telling what he
bad no right to tell. But be was ever
hoping for some word of bis father-
news that might set him free. He had
planned to visit Polly, and on a certain day Darrel was to meet him at
Robin's Inn. The young man waited
In some doubt of bis duty, and that
day came, one of the late summer,
when he and Darrel went afoot to the
Inn, crossing bill and valley as the
crow flies, stopping here and there at
isles of shadow .in a hot amber sea of
light. They sat long to hear the droning In the stubble and let tbelr thought
drift slowly as the ship becalmed.
"Some days," said Darrel, "the soul
lu me is like a toy skiff, tossing in the
ripples of a duck pond an' mayhap
stranding on a reed or Illy. An' then,"
he added, with kindling eye and voice,
"sbe is a great ship, her sails league
long an' high, her masthead raking the
etars, her hull in the infinite sea."
"Well," said Trove, sighing, "I'm
still In tbe ripples of tbe duck pond."
"An' see they do not swamp thee,"
said Darrel, with a sipile that seemed
to say, "Poor weakling, your trouble
is only as the ripples of a tiny pool."
They went on slowly, over green pastures, halting at a brook in the woods.
There again they rested ln a cool
shade of pines, Darrel lighting bis pipe.
"I envy thee, boy," said the tinker,
"entering on thy life work ln this great
land—a country blest o' God. To thee
all high things are possible. Wbere I
was born, let a poor lad have great
hope ln blm, an' all—aye, all—even
those he loved, rose up to cry him
down. Here ln tbls land all cheer an'
bid blm godspeed. An' here is to be the
great theater o' the world's action.
Many of high hope ln tbe broad earth
shall come, an' here tbey shall do their
work. An' its spirit shall spread like
the rising waters, aye, it shall flood the
world, boy, It shall flood the world."
Trove made no reply, but be thought
much and deeply of wbat the tinker
eald. They lay back awhile on the
needle carpet, thinking. They could
hear tbe murmur of tue brook and a
woodpecker drumming on a dead tree.
"Me head ls busy as yon woodpecker's," Darrel went on. "It's tbe soul
fire in tbls great, free garden o' God-
it's America. Have ye felt it, boy?"
"Yes; tt Is ta your eyes and on your
tongue," said Trove.
"Ah, boy, 'tis only God's oxygen.
Think o' tbe poor fools withering on
cracker barrels In Hillsborough an'
-wearing away 'the lag end o' their
lewdness.' I have uo patience with
the like o' tbem. I'd ratber be a
butcher's clerk an' carry with me the
redolence o' bam."
In Hillsborough, wbere all spoke of
him as an odd man of great learning,
there were none, saving Trove nnd two
or three other., tbat knew the tinker
well, for be took no part In tbe roaring
gossip of shop and store.
"Hath It ever occurred to thee," said
Darrel as tbey walked along, "that a
fool Is blind to his folly, a wise man to
his' wisdom?"
When they were through the edge of
the wilderness and came out on Cedar
hill and saw below them tbe great
round shadow of Robin's Inn they began to hasten their steps. They could
Bee Polly readlug a book under the big
"Wbat bo, the little queen," said
Darrel as they came near. "Now, put
upon ber brow 'an odorous chaplet o'
sweet summer buds.'"
Sbe came to meet them In a pretty
pink dress and slippers and white
"Fair lady, I bring thee flowers,"
said Darrel, handing her a bouquet
"They are from tbe great garden o'
tbe fields."
"And I bring a crown," said Trov.
as he kissed her and put a wreath of
clover and w'ld roses on her brow.
•_ tnought somethlrfg dreadful hnd
happened," said Polly, with tears ln
her eyes. "For three days I've been
dressed, up waiting."
"An' a grand dress It Is," said Dar-
rei, surveying her pretty figure.
"I've nearly worn It out waiting,"
said she, looking down, her voice trembling.
"Tut, tut girl-'tis a lovely dress,"
rh« tinker Insisted.
"It Is one my mother wore when ah.
was a girl," said Polly proudly. "It
was made over."
"0-oh, God love tbee, child!" said the
tinker In a tone of great admiration.
"'Tis   beautiful."
"And you. came through the woods?"
said Polly.
"Through wood and field," was
Trove's answer.
"I wonder you knew the way."
"The little god o' love, he shot his
arrows, an' we followed them as the
hunter follows the bee," said Darrel.
"It was nice of you to bring the
flowers," said Polly. "They are beautiful."
"But not like those in tby cheeks,
dear child. Where is the good mother?" said Darrel.
"She and the boys are gone a-berry-
tag, and I bave been making jelly.
We're going to have a party tonight
for your birthday."
" 'An' rise up before the hoary head
an' honor the face o' the old man,'"
"Fair lady, I briny thee flowert."
said Darrel thoughtfully.   "But, child,
honor   is   not   for   tbem   that  tinker
" 'Honor and fame from no condition
rise,'" said Polly, who sat In a chair
"True, dear girl. Thy lips are sweeter than tbe poet's thought."
"You'll turn my head." The girl was
laughing as sbe spoke.
'An it turn to me, I shall be happy,"
said tbe tinker, smiling, and tben he
began to feel tbe buttons on his waistcoat "Loves me, loves me not, loves
me, loves me not"—
'She loves you," said Polly, with a
"She loves me—hear that, boy!" said
the tinker. "Ab, were she not bespoke!
Well, God be praised, I'm happy," be
added, filling bis pipe.
"And seventy," Bald Polly.
"Aye, threescore an' ten—small an'
close together, now, as I look off at
tbem, like a flock o' pigeons ln the
"What do you think?" said Polly as
she dropped her knitting. "The two
old maids are coming tonight."
"The two old melds," Bald Darrel.
"'Tis a sign an' a wonder."
"Ob, a great change hns come over
them," Polly went on. "It's all the
work o' the teacher. You know be
really coaxed them into sliding wltb
him last winter."
"I beard of It. The gay Philander!"
said Darrel, laughing merrily. "Ah,
he's a wonder with the maidens!"
"I know It" said Polly, with a sigh.
Trove was Idly brushing the mat of
grass with a walking stick. He loved
fun, but be had uo conceit for thla
kind of banter.
"It was one of my best accomplishments," said be, blushing. "I taught
them that there was really a world outside their house and that men were
not all as lions, seeking whom tbey
might devour."
Soon the widow and her boys came,
their pulls full of berries.
"We cannot shake hands with you,"
■aid Mrs. Vaughn, her fingers red with
the berry stain.
"Blood o' tbe old earth!" said Darrel.   "How fares the clock?"
"It's top tlpjy, Polly er.__:."    ... -
"Ah, time "lags when love Is on the
way," Darrel answered. '
"Foolish child! A little while ago
she was a baby, an' now she ls ln
"Ah, let the girl love," said Darrel,
patting the red cheek of Polly, "an'
bless God sbe loves a worthy lad."
"You'd better flx the clock," said
Polly, smiling.   "It Is too fast now."
"So ls the beat o' thy heart," Darrel
answered, a merry look In bis eyes,
"an' the clock Is keeping pace."
Trove got up, with a laugh, and
went away, the boys following.
"I'm worried about hlni," tbe widow
whispered. "For a long time he hasn't
been himself."
"It's the trouble, poor lad! 'Twill
soon be over," said Darrel hopefully.
There were now tears ta the eyes of
"I do not think be loves me any
more," said she, her lips trembling.
"Speak not so, dear child. Indeed be
loves thee."
"I have done everything to please
him," said Polly In broken words, her
face covered wltb her handkerchief.
"I wondered what was the matter
with you, Polly," said her mother tenderly.
"Dear, dear child!" said the tinker,
rising and patting ber bead. "Tbe
chaplet on thy brow an' thee weeping, fairest flower of all!"
"I have wished that I was dead!"
The words came In a little moan between sobs. |
"Because love hath led thee to the
great river o' tears? Nay, child: 'tis a
winding river an' crosses all the roads."
He had taken ber handkerchief and
with a tender touch dried her eyes.
"Now I can see thee smiling, an' thy
lashes, child—they are like the spray *•
the fern tip wben the dew is on lt"
Polly rose and went away Into the
house. Darrel wiped bis eyes, aud the
widow sat, her chin upou ber hand,
looking down sadly and thoughtfully.
Darrel was flrst to speak.
"Did lt ever occur to ye, Martha
Vaughn, this child o' thine is near a
woman, but has seen nothing o' the
"I think of that often," said she, th.
mother's feeling ta her voice.
"Well, If I understand him, It's a
point of honor with the boy not to
pledge her to marriage until she has
seen more o' life an' made sure of her
own heart. Now, consider this: Let
ber go to the school at Hillsborough,
an' I'll pay the cost."
Tbe widow looked up at him without
"I'm an old man near the end o' tbe
journey, an' ye've known me many
years," Darrel went on. "There's nothing can be said against lt. Nay; I'll
have no thanks. Would ye thank tbe
money Itself, the bits o' paper? No;
nor Roderick Darrel, who ta this business is no more worthy o' gratitude.
Hush!   Who comes?"
It was Polly herself ta a short red
skirt, her arms bare to the elbows. She
began to busy herself about tbe house.
"Too bad you took off that pretty
dress, Polly," said Trove when he returned.
She came near and whispered to him.
"This," Bald she, looking down sadly, "ls like tbe oue I wore wben you
flrst came."
"Well, flrst I thougbt of your arms,"
said he. "They were so lovely 1 Then
of your eyes and face and gown, but
now I think only of the one thing-
The girl was happy now and went
on with the work, singing, while Trove
lent a hand.

Th* Law's Delays.
A lawyer on being asked why his
profession Is always lu court aaklug
for delays and adjournments responded: "I bave observed ta my long years
of experience that when a lawyer bos
a very good case he Is anxious to try
It If be has a pour one tbe longer be
can delay It the better It suits blm.
There Is no telling what the accident*
and Incidents of time may supply In
bis favor. Another reason perhaps,**
the lawyer continued, "Is the fact that
a lawyer never feels like prying himself entirely away from a case until be
has to. I concede that this la one of th.
mysteries of the legal mud."
A Judg. of Eggs.
Judge Addison, a well known jurist
of London, waa tn the habit of tadulg
Ing ta tbe oddest observations while
trying cases. On one occasion opposing lawyers were wrangling over the
question, "When does an egg become
stale?" The judge, who had vivid recollection! of a close election contest ln
which he figured, declared that the real
test of an egg's Btaleness was the moment It became fit for use at a contested election.
American Writer Finds Many Amusing   Things   In   Canada.
E. W. Thomson, in The Boston
Transcript, is amused at a few things
he sees in Canada. He writes:
As a field of subjects for comic
opera Canada merits attention.
Around the governor-generalship somo
funny "shows" of amiable noblemen,
all happy in the possession of charming, good-natured wives and daughters,
condemned, for about four years each,
to pose as shades of royalty in a country of the most democratic, their performance being gravely condemned
on ,no other ground than ns furnishing a sort of Bchool of tleportment for
tlie worthy commonalty whom it
doesn't affect, in any degree. Conceive a man of the essential seriousness, the ability, tact and diplomatic
skill of Lord Grey, taking the chief
role in that farce. He called the executive ! The politicians and press so
jealous of him that he can't open his
mouth on any political matter without
risk of being fiercely told tb. t he has
put his foot in it! Suppose him sensible of boing required, by absurd
prescription, to award his official-
social smile to every Tom, Dick and
Harry who vapors for a variety of
imperialism that is absolete, and
equally required to cold-shoulder any
who promote the local patriotism
which he himself knows to be the ruling sentiment of the present and the
future. Consider his necessarily cynical amusement at the susceptibility
of those whom he succeeds in flattering into such vociferous demonstrations of "loyalty" as they formerly affected to jeer. Then, to be a rare-show
in "vice-regal progresses" frequently!
Ruminate on the tumult of small social jealousies continually rising out
of the necessary discrimination, bv
his aides, of those "possible" for this
official-social invitation, from tho
others who can be entertained only at
some gathering of a more general nature.
A Canadian Nurse.
Because the labor unions hold her
coming is in violation of the contract
labor laws, Miss Margaret Murray
recently brought to Grand Rapids,
Mich., from Toronto to run the city's
contagious hospital, may be deported.
It is possible that the cook and a
hall boy of the institution who were
taken over on her recommendation
will meet with a similar fate. It may
be that Miss Murray might escape
on the ground that she is a "professional person," but there are union
men who hold that she is no more
practicing a profession than were the
Pere Marquette trainmen" who were
deported from St. Thomas some time
ago, and they will do everything in
their power to have Miss Murray removed. The case has attracted keen
interest, and the outcome will be eagerly awaited.
Danger In Blotters.
A fresh danger has been probed
by the Lancet, if lancets may be said
to probe. It ia the blotting pad. A?
an absorbent of moisture "any Beptic
matter would be rapieily dried bn it."
We breathe upon our blotting pads,
those of us who toil with the pen, so
we scatter such diseases as are ours.
"A fresh, spotless sheet every day"
is the Lancet's prescription. One
foresees a boom in blotting paper.
Among all our decaying industries
one at least will be stationary.—

Inexplicable Fate of? the Enemies of
Dreyfus Revision.
"Alwnys the dead!" Relnacb cried
bitterly. "Whenever we find a forgery, a crime, always lt ls set to tbe
account of a dead man!"
And he drew up a list horrible ln Its
eloquence, of the dead who strewed
the dark path of this monstrous case
of crime and cruelty and Infamy. Yet
there had fallen so many of the enemies of truth and justice that he might
have called tbem the expiatory dead.
Three I have told you of—that poor
wretch, Lemercler-Picard, "found dead"
In hia room ta the Rue de Sevres; Henri, "found dead," with a closed razor
near by; Felix Fauns, "found dead"
and smuggled into his palace.
There were many others. Captain
tFAttel, who claimed to have heard
Dreyfus avow his guilt to Lebrun-Re-
nault the day of his degradation, was
"found dead" ln a railway train, his
corpse blue and already on the way to
decomposition, though his journey had
lasted but an hour. This pretended
confession, which Dreyfus never made,
D'Attel confided to his friend, Chaulln-
Servtalere, a member of tbe chamber
of deputies. Now, the deputy took
train one day to visit his borne. An
hour later he was "found dead" on the
railway trades between two stations.
And Rocber of the prison guards, who
also claimed to have beard Dreyfus
say, "I am guilty, but I am not the
only one!" died, and to this day no one
knows where or how. It was as
though eternal truth had reached dowu
and slain tbls He wherever lt lifted Its
evil bead.
The prefect Barreme was siynmoned
to Paris by his government chief. He
was "found dead" ln his compartment
when the train arrived at the Gore St
Lozare. Laurence-mi, prefect of the
north, was called to Paris to give evidence regarding tbo spy system on the
German frontier. There was no accident on the journey. The next day he
was "found dead" lu his room at tbe
Hotel Terminus.
Lorimer, one of Henri's most tireless agents of forgery and crime, was
"found dead," banged ln a lonely barn;
another, Guenee, was "found dead" ou
the floor of his room ta Paris. Then
there was Munier. His part ln the conspiracy had been to falsify the meaning of a cryptic telegram sent by Pa-
ulzzardl to the Italian government, so-
that lt affirmed the guilt of Dreyfus.
And Munier was "found dead" In a
railway train. Was it any wonder the

Froren  In Solid Ice.
Letters from Ernest Lefflngwell
geologist, containing the flrst news
from the Anglo-American polar expedition, headed by Capt. Elmar Mik-
kelsen, Binee the expedition left Alaska, have just been received.
The letters were dated Nov. 21 and
Nov. 23 and were carried over the icefields to Point Barrow, where they
were delivered to the Canadian Mounted   Police.
Mr. Lefflngwell states tnat the ship,
the Duchess of Bedford, was frozen
in solid ice about 200 miles off Point
Barrow and that the preparations at
that time were almost completed for
starting the expedition into the unknown country lying to the north early this spring.
lefflngwell says that,- judging from
the tides and from talks with the natives, the conclusion has been reached
that a large island exists not far from
the mainland. The party, he says,
may not return for two years.
The weather was moderate at the
time the letters were written. The entire party of 15 were in good health;
experiments made by Dr. Howe in
the use of vegetable foods demonstrated their inadequacy and the serving
of meat to the men had been resumed.
The experiment waa made in the belief that vegetable food would decrease
the danger of disease.
Lefflngwell says th. letters may be
the last to reach the outside world
for two years, unless he succeeds in
sending a couple of men next summer.

Probably no household remedy in
existence has won such glowing
tributes itom people in high places
as lias Zam-Buk. Mr. Roger F.

famous balm, and this is what he
says of it:

"Gentlemen—After a very fair
trial 1 have proved Zam-Buk emi

Zam-Buk differs from ordinary
salves and embrocations, for while
these mostly contain animal oils and
fat, Zam-Buk is purely herbal. It
■closes and heals cuts, festering sores,
ulcers, eruptions, boils, eczema,
cliniing sores, etc. In the household it is the handiest possible remedy for burns, scalds, children's injuries. It instantly cleanses any
wound to which it is applied; prevents festering, inflammation or
lilood poisoning. It cures piles,
varicose ulcers and fistula. All
druggists and stores sell at 50 cents

Explorer's Narrow Escape—Life With
the Pigmies.
A Friday adventure with his 13th
lion was, the superstitious will note,
one of the most exciting incidents in
Major Powell-Cotton's novel honeymoon.
The famous explorer has just returned after 27 months of travel in
Africa. In 1905 he intended to return
to England to be married, but hesitated about breaking his journey, and
so his fiancee went out to East Africa,
where the wedding took place. Since
then they have explored together the
land of the pigmies of the Ituri Forest.
' It was in October last, while on the
bank of the Sassa river, near Lake
Albert Edward, that Major Powell-
Cotton had his moat exciting adventure. A lion which he had wounded
sprang on him, digging its claws in
the major's back and legs.
It tore its victim's coat to shreds,
and then attempted to tear open the
abdomen, but owing to a folded copy
of Punch which Major Powell-Cotton
had in his pocket, the brute's claws
were unable to penetrate to the flesh.
Finally an Askari shot the lion dead.
It was then found that Major
Powell-Cotton had received 17
wounds. He, however, rode to the
nearest Belgian camp, where he was
nursed back to health by Commandant Bastion.
This incident happened on a Friday, and it was the explorer's 13th
Among the Pigmies.
Speaking   of   his  experiences  with
the    pigmies,    Major    Powell-Cotton
"The excitement of these little people when they flrst saw my wife was
extraordinary, for they had, of course,
never previously beheld a white
woman. Perhaps the chief source of
wonder was her long hair, which, for
tlie special benefit of the dwarfs, she
woulel let down, while they crowded
round our tent in speechless wonder.
"Occasionally when nway I would
leave my wife alone. She had learned
n little of their language, and did
excellent inedicnl work among them.
In my absence she took charge of the
caravan, and was always treated with
tlie greatest respect by the people."
On - the conclusion of tlie work in
the forest the expedition proceeded
to I,nke Albert Edward, where the
explorer visited n tribe of lake
dwellers, who spend their whole lives
on the water. Their houses are all
built on Pontine platforms, anchored
to long poles. The main flouting village consists of 30 huts, while two
others comprise 10 and seven respectively.
"Some of these grass huts," says
Major Cotton, "were built round a
small Bouare platform nbout 25 feet
by 10. This forms the common bnck
yai*d and practically the world of the
children. The people were healthy,
well fed, and good-looking. They
rarely marry outside their own community, for they say a larid woman
would be useless and unhappy if
compelled to live on their lake villages."
Two     Years—Relieved    In
Three  Months
Indeed, the one great leading feature of
our new H»ir Vigor may well be said to
be this—it stops falling hair. Then it
goes one step further—it aids nature in
restoring tbe hair and scalp to a healthy
condition. Ask for "the new kind."

It is the business of the kidneys
to remove from the blood all poisonous materials. They must be active

There are times when they need a

Peruna is exactly tliis sort of a

from disaster by rendering the kidneys service nt a time when they

An  Accommodating  Peg
One of the disadvantages of modern slioemaking is that the peg
won't fit itself into the hole. Time
was, according to Mayor E. F.
Brown of Marlboro, when it was
much   more   accommodating.
"One day," he recently informed
the Boot and Shoe club, "my father,
a pioneer in the business, hit the
peg and it flew up. What happened? Probably you won't believe
me, but it's a fact all the same. The
peg hit the ceiling, came clown exactly into the hole, and was driven
in. But, you know," added Mayor
Brown, with a smile, "we don't peg
shoes that way nowadays."—Boston

Everything was to his liking, and
negotiations were about to be completed, when the question of hiring
also the farmer's cow came up. It
was an excellent cow, the farmer
declared, and even after feeding her
calf she would give six quarts of
milk a day.
"Six quarts a day!" exclaimed the
Washington man. "That is more
than  my whole  family  could  use."
Then, suddenly Observing the calf
following its mother about the pasture, he added:

Sunday was a Red Letter Hay with
Mount Pleasant Methodists. The flue
new church was dedicated with appropriate ceremony at 11 o'clock, in
the presence of fully 1,200 people;
at 2 o'clock a large congregation was
present and ln the evening there was
one of the largest congregations
ever assembled on Mt. IPeasaut, fully
1,600 people being in attendance.
The speaker of the day was Rev. Dr,
Sparling, Principal of Manitoba
Methodist College. The reverend
gentleman is a tall, handsome old
man of oratorial ability of. the first
rank. Hit; sermons were truly spiritual and uplifting. His morning sermon vas a brilliant exposition of the
Christian religion as a religion of
gladness, the texts being from Isaiah
J2t3, "Therefore with joy shall ye
draw water out of the wells of salvation," and St. Paul's words, "Rejoice iu tbe Lord always, and again
I say rejoice." Dr. Sparling confessed thore is much lack of gladness in
the lives of church people. He accounted for this in the doubtful experience of true religion which afflicts many, not being definitely converted.
At the evening service Dr. Sparling spoke from the geneiml epistle of
St. John, using the words: "This ls
the victory that overcometh the
world, even our faith." He divided
his subject Into three parts, asking
first. What ls Meant by the World?
Secondly, when may a Man be said
to bi.ve overcome the World? Thirdly, and last, some reflections on the
Instrumentality by which the victory
ts achieved. A man may be said to
have gained the victory when, in the
language of Scripture be can say
"no" and stick to lt against "the
lust of tie world and the flesh and
the pride of life." When he can put
his foot on the neck of every unholy desire or Impulse; wl^en he can
use tbe things of this world as not
abusing tbem, but makini them the
moans by which he canjget the ear
of God. Singing "Britons Never Shall
Be Slaves" Is an absurdity if we are
enslaved by appetite or greed or salacious desire. Young men should
learn early to conquer themselves,
for "he that ruleth his ;own spirit
ts greater than he that taketh a
The collection for the day amounted to J:.,(125, of this amount $1,950'
was pledged at the evening service.
Tuesday evening, from. 6 to 8
p'clock, the Ladles' Aid served tea
Itt thu Sunday School room of the
Methodist Church to three or four
hundred people. At 8 o'clock a concert was given in the new church,
the chief feature being the organ
selections by Prof. Deans Wells, organist of Wesley Church. Prof. Wells
played several beautiful compositions and brought the great volume
and sweet, harmonious tones of tho
tine new pipe organ. Solos were given by Miss McQuillan, Mrs. Terry-
berry and Mr. R. C. Sparling, several
brilliant recitations were given by
Mt. Pleasant'** gifted elocutionist,
Rev. Herbert W. Piercy. A short and
spirited address oa Church Union
was given by Rev. Dr. Sparling, who
Is an earnest advlcate of the union
expenses of two churches in the
small towns of the Northwest when
one would answer the purpose. These
denominations united could more effectively fight the litiuor traffic and
its kindred moral evils, and the spirit
of graft in public life which is rampant all over the Dominion of Canada. Tlie address was enthusiastically received, and the audience wanted
the reverend gentleman to speak
longer but he declined. Rev. A. E.
Hetherlngton was called upon to address the gathering, which he did,
speaking words of appreciation of
tbe kind manner he had been treated
by the congregation during Mb pastorate. He parted with regret from
his association with the congregation, the various Boards and Societies of the church, and he said he
would always look upon Mt. Pleasant
Methodist Church as his church
Dr J. W. Spnrliug, M A., D. D., is a

YOTT may trim your hat with
almost anything under the
sun in the shape of feathers and still be in fashion,
but if you want to be distinctly up
to date you will aim at long, sweeping effects. These may be attained
with ostrich plumes, with osprey
plumes, with birds of paradise, with
coque feathers, with aigrettes and
even with wings.
Never have ostrich feathers been
worn more than now. The bedraggled, uncurled plume that threatened
us a little earlier in the season is
waning in popularity. If you buy an
ostrich plume now you will buy it
curled, and you will also choose it in
a plain color, as the shaded effects
are ceasing to please.
A long ostrich plume of good quality in black or white is a good investment for any woman. Her hat.
adorned with it this winter is sure
to be in good stvle, and these plumes
will admit of almost endless redye-
ing and curling. Beautiful plumes
come in all the standard colors—
brown, navy blue, green and gray.
There is a fascinating shade known
by the milliners as "taupe," which is

apples and figs, most of the chronic
cases of indigestion and constipation

Figs—green or diied or pulled—are a

laxative qualities.
For nervous people, and the majority
of people with poor digestion, nothing
Is so good aa plenty of lettuce and celery.   Spinach Is another vegetable with
medicinal qualities, and carrots are
good blood-makers. As for onions, they
are a sort of tonic, eaten raw. boiled,
baked—any way but fried, which is apt
to make  them indigestible.
When fresh fruits seem too much of
a tax upon the digestive organs, the
stewed ones may be substituted, but the
amount of sugar used should be as little
as possible—only enough to overcome
the acidity of llie fruit.
Whenever pimples make their appearance upon the face or body, it ls usually
a sign that the blood needs cooling.
Reducing your diet to vegetables and
fruit for a few days, eating plenty of
the green vegetables and of tomatoes,
should accomplish the result without

' HAT a unique fan that is," remarked Mary  to   Ethel,   as
they descended the steps of
the ballroom.
"That? Why, my dear, that fan cost
me just 26 cents. It was a very ordinary design of large flowers In white
and silver. The flowers, which had no
definite ihape, I painted bright red, also
painting the sticks of the fan to match
them. Painting tie sticks is my littlo
trick, for it gives the fan an odd and
pretty appearance.
"I have them to match every one or my
evening gowns, in all varieties and
shades. Once, I remember, a hotel here
gave out fans as souvenirs on, a special
occasion Mine was a dear, and the
only advertisement on lt was the hotel's
name in light purple ink on the outside
stick.   There were no flowers In the de
sign, but there were Insertions of laca^
which I painted violet. The sticks I
painted so deep a purple that the lnfc
did not show, and a violet ribbon te>
match the color of the lace gave thet
finishing touch. Even when I get a good
fan I give it some distinguishing touch,
to add to Its unique appearance."
"Oh, well, lt ls because you paint that
you can do all that," pouted Mary.
"No, not entirely. In the case of th*
violet fan, for instance, it needed no
ability to stain the lace and stick. Very
often you can find a fan of that sort.
But of all the fans I transform I like
best the black ones, on which I paint a
long wreath of forget-me-nots or wild,
roses.   They are really stunning."
"Well, I'm going to begin renovating;

garments as soon os they become too
snug a fit, the clothes should be cut
a size or two too large nnd the surplus should be disposed of without
Bhowlng. lf the waist has a belt ret
ln, the material of the waist should
bo carried down under the belt, and
a further addition may be made by
taking a tuck so close to the top of
the belt that It will never be noticed.
This can be let out at any moment for
length, and should be put ln by close
hand-running, so that it may be the
more easily removed.
Belts should be well turned In at
both ends, as by -his means a little
can be let out on either side sometimes, without moving the entire belt.
If the gurment bo buttoned up, the
button at the belt should be merely
sewed on the out ide for show, the
real buttoning being made by a little
tag aewed on underneath. By this
means, when ripped, ono has no buttonhole to contend with. For the upper part, lf ; okes arc tucked, lt la
well, if possible, to tuck the goods
Itself, In which case one tuck or
more on each Bide can be let out at
the same time. If not made this way,
the addition of some half-worn Insertion will remedy the trouble.
Sleeves can be dea.t with in the following way; Make the wristbands
at least an inch to an inch and a half
too large, and the sleeves rather full.
When needed, a little ripping will
correct the trouble. The length should
be added at the top. at least one and
one-half inches. The rleeves should
be put ln so that this extra length
will fall Into the
gathers, where
will never be
If all tbls be
served, much trouble will be saved, as
the old things can
be made to do good
service and still look
well. As an ordinary
thing, children do
not spread in all direr tlons at once.
Some grow long and
some grow wide, lt
has been asserted
that from May till
August they Increase In height, from August till
November In weight, standing practically still during the rest of the
year. If this be the case, but little
attention at a time WiU be r .ided,
and all emergencies will be . rovid-
ed for.

Winding the Bobbin
IF your machine is one of the newer
makes, and has a winder with* the
little automatic catch, you can
save yourself a good deal of trouble
by winding a fresh bobbin while the
sewing Is going on. To do this, put a
second spool upon the spool-holder,
and attach nn end to the fresh bobbin.
Slip tho catch in place, and while tne
long scams Bl- smoothly from under
the presser emptying the bobbin In
use, the second spool is turning merrily and tilling a new one. What a
comfort It ls to find a bobbin already
filled,   every   machine    sewer    knows.
And she knows, equally, how sbe
hates to stop to wind one right in
the middle of a long seam.
Easy Way of Using Insertion
WHEN one considers the yards
and yards of lace In .ertion
that are used on a single garment, it becomes quite apparent l—it
any easy method of producing the
result will be a boon to busy workers.
If straight lines only aro to be used,
and the garment does not require the
finest of handwork, insertion can be
put in by machine without the stitching belns in evidence and in a manner
to be absolutely strong and'durable.
Flrrt baste the Insertion Into the
fabric rather closely and firmly, then
stitch along both edges with a small
firm stitch, taking In only the first
thread of the lace. Turn the outer
portions of the material over Into the
lace and again stitch just within tbe
first row. Cut the material away beneath the Insertion quite close to
the stitching, when the desired transparent effect will be obtained and the
edges perfectly Btrong, enduring even
the ravages of the laundry without
pulling out.
A Simplified Mode of Shirring
THE gown of today Is an elaborate creation, much shirred and
much tucked, and any simplified
method of doing the work Is to be welcomed.
To get the ! est results- the work
should all be done by hand, but where
time must be made a consideration,
very fine machine stitching can sometimes be BUbstltutcd. Tiny tucks and
shlrrlngs are much In vogue, und aro
very beautiful when well managed.
If the tucks are careful'.y put in, of
the required width, and arc threaded
with silkollne exactly matching the
color of the material, they can bo
drawn up very easily and'with perfect success. The silkollne should bj
passed through the eye of a rather
coarse needle, then the needle passed
through the tucks eye first.
lf   thu   tucks  have   been   sewed   by
hand, lu tli the silkollne and th*
thread should be drawn up together,
but If the machine Btltchlng has been
used lt will be Dossible only to draw-
up the siikoline. Wider tucks wUl
of course demand heavier cord, and
for these almost an- sort that ls soft
and pliable can be utilized. Tho cord
that fits the tuck snugly gives the best
To Avoid Annoyance
CAN anything be mire annoying
when sewing than to have tha
scissors constantly hiding themselves awav. or falling on the floor, aa
If possessed by some evil spirit; or to
have no pincushion convenient from
which to obtain pins or replace them
at every turn? Well, the simplest ot
arrangements will prevent both of
these annoyances. If likely to need
the scissors frequently, attach them,
to the waist by a tnpo long enough-,
to suit any emergency of roach. There
they are, then, at any and e i "V mo-
1. ...-.
For the pins, a "Oreecent" plnt'iMtit'on-
will io -ound the most convenient,
the most unobtrusive kind.   1 iay
