(Contin'ied.)
Ja'rPCT'rose'nnll.Mrg-iting a torch of
pine, stuck it in the ground; then he
opened his leathern pocketbook and
took out n number of cuttings, much
worn and apparently from old newspapers. He put on his glasses, aud began to examine the cuttings.
"The other day." said he, "I found an
account of his mother's death. I had
forgotten, but her death was an odd
tragedy."
And the tinker began reading slowly
as follows:
"She an' her mother, a lady deaf an'
feeble, were alone, saving the servants
In a remote corner o' the honse. A
sound woke ber ln the still night. She
lay awhile, listening. Was It her husband returning without his key? She
rose, feeling her way In the dark an'
trembling with the fear of a nervous
woman. Descending stairs, she came
Into a room o' many windows. The
■hades were up, an' there was dim
moonlight in tbe room. A door with
panels o' thick glass led to tbe garden
walk. Beyond It were the dark forms
of men. One was peering ln, his face
at a panel, another kneeling at the
lock. - Suddenly the door opened. The
lady fell fainting, with a loud cry
Next day the kldnaoed boy was born.''
Darrel stopped reading, put the clipping Into his pocketbook and smothered the torch.
"It seems the woman died the same
day," said be.
"And was my mother." The words
came In a broken voice.
Half a moment of silence followed
them; then Darrel rose slowly, and a
tremulous, deep sigh came from the
lips of Trove.
"Thy mother, boy!" Darrel whispered.
The fire had burned low, and the
great shadow of the night lay dark upon tbem. Trove got to his feet and
came to the side of Darrel.
"Tell me, for God's sake, man, tell
me where ls my father!" ssld he.
"Hush, boy! Listen. Hear the wind
In the trees," said Darrel.
There was a breath of silence, broken
by the hoot of an owl and the stir of
high branches. "Ye might as well ask
o' the wind or the wild owl," Darrel
said. "I cannot tell thee. Be calm,
boy, and say bow thou bast come to
know."
Again they sat down together, and
presently Trove told him of those silent
men who had ever haunted the dark
and ghostly house of bis inheritance.
" 'Tis thy mother's terror—an' thy
father's bouse—I make no doubt" 6aid
Darrel presently In a deep voice. "But,
boy, I cannot tell auy man where Is
thy father, not even thee, nor his name
or the least thing tending to point him
out until—uutil I am released o' me
vow. Be content. If I can find the
man ere long thou shalt have word o'
him."
Trove leaned against the breast of
Darrel, shaking with emotion. His tale
had come to an odd and fateful climax.
The old man stroked his bead tenderly.
"Ah, boy," said he, "I know thy
heart. I shall make haste—I promise
thee I shall make baste. But If tbe
good God should bring tby father to
thee an' thy head to shame an' sorrow
for his sin, forgive him, In the name o'
Christ, forgive him. Aye, boy, thou
must forgive all that trespass against
thee."
"If I ever see him he shall know I
em not ungrateful," said the young
man.
Trove and Darrel walked to the clearing above Faraway. At a corner on
the high bills, where northward they
could see smoke and spire of distant
villages, each took bis way, one leading to Hillsborough, tbe other to Allen's.
"Goodby. An' when I return I hope
to bear the rest o' thy tale," said Darrel as they parted.
"Only God ls wise enough to finish
It," said the young man.
" 'Well, God help us; 'tis a world to
see,' " Darrel quoted, waving his hand.
"If thy heart oppress thee, steer for
the Blessed Isles."
CHAPTER XIX.
A BIG maple sheltered the honse
of the Widow Vaughn. After
the noon hour of a summer
day its tide of shadow began
flowing fathoms deep ever bouse and
garden to the near field, where finally
It joined the great flood of night. The
maple was indeed a robin's Inn at some
crossing of the Invisible roads of the
air. Its green dome towered high
above and fell to the gable end of the
little bouse. Its deep and leafy thatch
hid every timber of Its frame save tbe
roc^_|i (w-T.;,   Its. trunk was tfce main
beam, each limb a corri*T*r, —iCn tie.
of limbs a floor, and branch rose above
branch like steps In a stairway. Up
aud down tbe high dome of the maple
were a thousaud balconies overlooking
the meadow.
From Its highest tier of a summer
morning the notes of the bobolink
came rushing off his lyre, and farther
down the golden robin sounded his piccolo. But chiefly it was the home and
refuge of the familiar red breasted
robin. Tbe Inn had Its ancient customs. Each young bird, leaving his
cradle, climbed bis own stairway till
be came out upon a balcony nnd got a
flrst timid look at field and sky. There
he might try his wings and keep In
the world he knew by using bill and
claw on the lower tiers.
At dawn the great hall of the maple
rang with music, for every lodger paid
his score witb song. Therein It was
ever cool and clean and shady though
the sun were hot. Its every nook and
cranny was often swept and dusted by
the wind. Its branches leading up and
outward to the green wall were as Innumerable stairways. Each separate
home was out on rocking beams, with
its own flicker of skylight overhead.
For a time at dusk there was a continual flutter of weary wings at the lower
entrance, a good night twitter and a
sound of tiny feet climbing the stairways in that gloomy hall. At last
there was a moment of gossip and then
silence on every floor.
There seemed to be a night watch
In the lower hall, and lf any green
young bird were late and noisy going
up to his home he got a shaking and
probably lost a few feathers from the
nape of his neck. Long before daybreak those hungry, half clad little people of tbe nests began to worry and
crowd their mothers. At flrst the old
birds tried to quiet tbem with caressing movements nnd had at last to hold
their places with bill and claw. As
light came an old cock peered about
him, stretched his wings, climbed a
stairway and blew his trumpet on the
outer wall. The robin's day had begun.
Mid-autumn, when Its people shivered and found fault and talked of moving, the mnple tried to please them
with new snd brighter colors—gold,
with the warmth of summer In Its
look; scarlet, suggesting love and the
June roses. Soon It stood bare and deserted. Then what was there In the
creak-and-whlsper chorus of the old
tree for one listening ln the night?
Belike lt might be many things, according to tlie ear, but was tt not
often something to make one think of
that solemn message; "Man that is
born of woman is of few days and
full of trouble?" They who lived In
that small house under the tree knew
little of all tbat passed in the big
world. Trumpet blasts of fame, thunder of rise and downfall, came faintly
to them. There the delights of art and
luxury were unknown. Yet those simple folk were acquainted with pleasure
and even with thrilling and impressive
incidents. Field and garden teemed
with eventful life, and hard by was
the great city of the woods.
iTo Be Continued.)
"Talesman*' In English Law.
A talesman, according to English
law, ls a juror summoned to All a gap.j
and formerly, at nny rate, this was
often done by taking any suitable per-i
son who was present ln court "Tales
de clrcuinstautibuH" ("such of the bystanders") were the flrst words of the
order directing this process. Good
I'lckwlcklans may remember that, as
only ten specinl jurymen were present
„n a memorable occasion. Mr. Serjeant
Huzfuz "prayed a tales," whereupon
two of the common jurymen, one of
whom was the unfortunate chemist
were pressed Into the service.—London
Standard.
The Very Worst
Douglas Jerrold was seriously dls-l
appointed with a certain book written!
by one of his friends. This friend'
heard that Jerrold had expressed his
disappointment and questioned him. "I
hear you said was the worst book
I ever wrote."
"No, I didn't" came the answer. "I
said It was the worst book anybody
ever wrote."
Where It Snows In Summer.
Snow, it appears, only falls in the
antarctic In summer and on those rare
occasions at otber seasons when the
wind blows almost due south, and,
strange to say, these south winds are
warm winds, raising the temperature
to 50 or 60 degrees F. They seem akin
to the snow melting Foehn wlnda of
the Alps.     .
WARNING!
Look Out for Wild Oat
Mining  Investments
Legitimate Mining Companies selling Treasury Stock for development purposes will not want you
to wire  your  money.    They encourage  Investigation.    Fortunes are still to be made.
We do not believe that three or four cents represent adequate compensation for the work of any
dollar for a full calendar year, even if it is guaranteed by a Savings Bank, a Trust Company or a Government Bond.
Why should the inaesee, whose Investments and deposits In Banks and Trust Companies alone
make great enterprises possible, be deprived of the benefit of legitimate profits earned by these same
Investments   and deposits?
The man of small mental oapaoity jumps to the conclusion that there ls something wrong
wherever he sees a large advertisement of the sale of Treasury Stock ln any corporation. Thle ls
neither fair to himself nor to those who do him the courtesy of Inviting his attention. In excuse for
his own Inability to think, he becomes a knocker and a croaker, fretting ln his own little world, envious
and jealous of those who, by their judgment, foresight and courage, have grasped these selfsame
opportunities, leaving him by the wayside with the old story still on his lips: "Luck never comes my
way." Of course, luck never came his way and never will. Luck means nothing else but trusting ln
one's own resources—one's ability to think out and decide for one's self. Successful men spell luck
with a big capital "P," which spells "Pluok."
We rely on our vigor, ability, prestige, methods nnd organization to sell any company stocks
that we otter to the public. We have never asked Immunity for any company's stock we have sold,
and fear neither public discussion nor legitimate and constructive criticism. We expect any propositions or enterprises we offer to be discussed and criticised with unsparlngness equal to that which
we mete out to others.
Why Do WoAdvortis!
Heavily?
Railroads advertise; banks solicit funds and ask you to open your accounts with them; the
strongest organizations bring to their aid the people and money—all for the same purpose: to 'increase
their capital, to more fully perfect the Industry, thereby Increasing the proflts. It ls only through the
combined thought, energy and oapital of many that great results are possible.
The reason we offer stook to the general publio Is for the same reason that the United States
Government distributes its Bond Issue among as many people' as possible. It has been found more
profitable to have a large number of persons giving their Influence to an enterprise rather than confining lt to a monopolistic few. We want the interest of a number of shareholders; hence this opportunity to buy stook.
If you do not want to take advantage of this opportunity, lt ls your privilege; but we can say ln
all confidence tbat the mistake will be yours, and a serious one. We are directing your attention to a safe
and legitimate Investment, and if you fall to take advantage lt ts not our fault. Blame yourself and put
It down on your list of regrets. We extend a cordial Invitation to everyone anxious to make money to
write us.
Don't think we are philanthropists. We are not In business for love. We are not doing you
charity. We are not giving money away. We are paid as Flsoal Agenta by companies we represent
and paid well, aa our sen-Ices come high—because we furnish the energy, ability and experience In
handling corporation matters. The biggest banking houses ln the world are paid ln the same way,
whether they are selling Japan or Russian Bond Issues, or Railroad Stocks and Bonds.
Many peraona who have followed our advioe have retained their original holdings with their original faith, and from time to time have added to both. Their confidence has not been shaken, because
they felt that It had not ln the beginning been misplaced.
Those who have followed our advioe before and bought stocks that we had recommended, have
thanked us over and over again, and you will  be doing the same.
We are asking investors to join us ln an enterprise that we know now positively will be successful. You do yourself an Injustice lf you are unfaithful to the degree that you do not take "advantage of
legitimate opportunities that come within your notice, and which can serve you to profitable advantage
provided you give them proper consideration.
We cordially invite all investors in Cobalt io fully Investigate our proposition. We are chartered
under Ontario law. Scrutinise our list of Directors. Compare our low capitalisations with that of other
companies. Inspect the last official assay of the values—4,576 oz. silver to the ton—that equale
$2,742.60 cash. In fact take every conceivable precaution before Investing. And then be doubly sure—
Invest under our absolute 80-day guarantee and on our four-payment plan.
It Is our businaaa to seek p-ofitabio investments for money savers. We can do no more for yeu
than find the most desirable properties for such Investments. We spend the necessary money In the
employment of competent Mining Engineers, Experts and Lawyers conversant with Mining Law to examine propositions and properties until we find one where the conditions are favorable to the Investor.
You get the benefit of our experience and judgment, backed by the experience and judgment of other
capable men who have given their lives to the business of mining.
Do you know what the mining busineas ia and what enormous proflts the Industry has produced
during the last four years? Do you know about Cobalt and the almost unbelleveable fortunes lt has
made for many men? Read the following facts and figures, and remember the possibilities of Cobalt
have only just  begun to develop.
According to a reosnt tabulation by the "Mining World," 158 Mining Companies paid during 1906
dividends to the enormous figure of one hundred and five million one hundred and ninety-seven thousand
seven hundred and fifty-five dollars ($105,197,766.00) or__* total of five hundred and seventy-four million
six hundred and ninety-two thousand nine hundred and seventy-one dollars ($674,692,971.00) since their
Incorporation. This does not Include the profit earned by thousands of corporations smd Individuals
owning mining properties who do not make public reports. Who reoeive these dividends? Certainly
not those that passed up the opportunity.
In 1871, Calumet and Hecla stock was peddled around at BO cents on the dollar and was even
traded for supplies; these same shares are now selling at $1,000.00 each, with plenty of eager buyers,
and that since 1871 this concern paid dividends amounting to over ninety-nine millions of dollars ($99,-
000,000.00). This mine Is certainly a star, and a bright one, but It Is only ONE. There are others, and
many  of them  that with developing,  will prove as good.   Even   as   half   so   good   should   satisfy   you.
When a Mining Company oan earn and pay Its stockholders ln proflts ln the course of a short
period of time several times Its capital stock and still have ore reserves sufficient to permit Its continued
operation for many, many years to come, it la a substantial argument in favor of mining Investment's.
*Wo Look forthe greatest Boom thi
ra-t COBALT ovor Known In tho
of any Mining: District
Cobalt is rapidly ooming to the front aa the greatest 8ilver Mining Distriot In the world. The
great Silver Mines of Cobalt are all especially demonstrating the fact that there ls no more valuable
or profitable Investment If the Investor gets In at the start.
The dividend paymenta In Cobalt Stocks have already aatonlahed the world. Hudson Bay Stock
during 1906 paid 9,600 per cent In dividends. This stock was offered to the public at 40 cents a share,
and Is now valued at $180.00 per share, with eager purchasers. Thousands of Canadians and Americans
who bought this stock when lt was originally offered were mad* Independently rich.

VIGOR AND HEALTH
FULLY RESTORED
The Old Tired, Listless Feelings, the Sleeplessness,  and  Nervousness Were
Driven Away by
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
QUEEN VICTORIA'S LETTERS.
The j_xperiei.ee described in this letter c.lrrespon.is to that of thousands of
women who have not yet learnt of the
marvelous restorative and invigorating
power  of Dr.  Chase's Nerve  Food.
Mrs. Henry Clarke, Port Hope, Ont.,
states: "1 have used several boxes of
Dr. Chase. Nerve Food for nervousness and a completely run-down system and can heartily recommend it
as a wonderfully effective treatment.
Before usinj this remedy I had been
in very poor health for some months.
I see in el to have no energy or ambition, felt tired and listless most of the
time and coald scarcely drag myself
about the^house. I was weak, irritable
and nervous, could not sleep well and
felt discouraged about my health. Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food has .taken away
these symptoms and given back my
usual health and vigor, consequently 1
endorse it  fully."
Weakness, lightheadedness, dizziness
at rising is one of the certain indica
tions  of thin  blood  and  an  exhausted
condition of the body,
I The action of the heart is weak, digestion is impaired, and all the vital
org ms pfirform their functions im-
i perfectl/, givinj rise to headaches,
feelings  of fatigue  and  depression.
Because it goes directly to tne formation 01 new, rich blood, every dose
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is bound to
prove of some benefit under such conditions.
Naturally and gradually the exhaust-
el system is restored until every or-,
gan is given back its accustomed
strength and vigor. The weight is increased, the f.orni is rounded out, and
health and vitality drive out weakness,
pain and disease.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, the great
blood-builder and restorative, 60 cents
a box, 6 boxes for $2.50, at all dealers
o: Elmanson, Bates & Co., Toronto.
The portrait and signature of Dr. A.
W. Chase, the famous receipt book

A unique work in many ways will

It is unique firstly because ol ths
nature of the book—it will consist
chiefly of letters, with an introductory
preface to each group, outlining thu
history of the period—and, secondly,
because it is the first time that a
reigning monarch has sanctioned tha
publication of the correspondence oi

King Edward VII has supervised the
proofs.
So well have the editors done their
work that King Edward has made

GERMANY'S REPLY '
Berlin—Tlie Berliner Tageblatt has
drawn attention to the great size of
the new battleships and armored
cruisers which Germany is laying
do».vi. The Tageblatt states that the
new Gemnan cruiser F, to be laid
down this year, will displace 19,200
tens and will have turbine engines ot
-,000 to 50,000 h.p
It is underst lod that her battery will
consist of ten or twelve 11-inch guns,
as against the Indomitable's eight 12-
inch, so that the German vessel will
not only be larger, but also more
heavily armed. The Tageblatt, adds
that the new German battleships, of
which two were ordered last year and
two more will be laid down this year,
will also surprise the world, and intimates that further credits for the German navy will be obtained from the
reichstag.
With such secrecy have the German
plans been carried out that the British
admiralty has no authentic particulars
of the new German ships in its possession.

Dr.   Williams'  Pink   Pills   Make    Rich,
Red,   Health-giving  Blood
Cold winter months, enforcing close
confinement ln over-heated, badly ventilated rooms—ln the home, ln the shop
and in the school—sap the vitality o£
even tho strongest. The blood becomes clogged with Impurities, the
liver sluggish, the kidneys weakened,
sleep ls not restful—you awake iust
as tired as wlien you went to bed;
you are low spirited, perhaps have
headache and blotchy skin—that ls the
condition of thousands of people every
spring. It conies to all unless the
blood is enriched by a good tonic—by
Dr. Williams' Pink Fills. These pills
not only banish this feeling, but they
guard against the more serious ailments that usually follow—rheumatism, nervr>u. debility, anaemia, Indigestion and kidney trouble. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ure an ideal spring
medicine. Every doso makes new,
rich, red blood. Every drop of new
blood helps to strengthen the overworked nerves; overcomes weakness
and drives the germs of disease from
the body. A thorough treatment gives
you vlin and energy to resist the torrid
hoat of tho coming summer. Mrs.
Jas. McDonald, Sugar Camp, Ont.,
says; "I was badly run down, folt
very weak and had no appetite. i
could scarcely drag myself about and
felt that my condition was growing
worse. I decided to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and before I had used a
dozen boxes I was as strong as ever.
My appetite returned and I am now
able to do my housework without feeling worn-out. I think Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills tho best tonic there Is."
It is a mistake tn take purgatives ln
spring. Nature calls for a medicine to
build up the wasted force—purgatives
only weaken. It Is a medicine to act
on the blood, which Is necessary. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills are a blood medicine—they make pure, rich, red blood,
and strengthen every organ of the
bodv. See that the full name "Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People,"
ls printed on the wrapper around each
box. AH other so-called pink pills are
fraudulent Imitations. Sold by medicine dealers or by mall at 50 cenUca

CANADIAN INVENTOR'S
EXPERIENCE
INTERESTING  INCIDENT BY
A FAMOUS PATENTEE
Mr. Wm. Wilson, of Craigie Villa,
London (Ont.), the inventor of the
Wilson Fruit Case, now adopted by
the Canadian Government, tells an
interesting experience which shows
the healing and antiseptic value of
Zam-Buk, the herbal balm. He saye:
"1 had two poisoned wounds on my
leg, which were very sore and inflamed. They caused me much pain and
suffering, and although I tried several
salves they refused to heal. Zam-Buk
was recommended, and I applied some.
It acted splendidly and in a very short
time healed  the wounds.
"At another time I sustained a nasty
cut. Zam-Buk took away the soreness
almost instantly and soon closed and
healed the wound. I have also used
Zam-Buk for other injuries, and I have
no hesitation in expressing my high
opinion of its value. It is, without
doubt,  a  splendid  household balm I"
Zam-Buk cures blood poison, cuts,
bruises, old wounds, running sores,
ulcers, boils, spring eruptions, scalp
seres, eczema, itoh, barber's rash,
burns, scalds and all skin injuries and
diseases. All druggists and stores
sell at fifty cents a box, or from Zam-
Buk Co., Toronto, for price. Remember, it ia purely herbal I

How Sentence of Death Was Carried
Out on Streets of Hyderabad.
The decision as to whether the murderer should be executed or imprisoned for life was, says The Civil and
Military Gazette in describing an execution at Hyderabad of a Pathan who
had shot hia brother-in-law, as is usual, left to the murdered man's relatives, and his widow, the sister of the
murderer, voted for his death. ■
On the day for the execution there
appeared in the streets a band of
sweepers armed with leafy twigs, followed by a squad of the city Arab
police with fixed bayonets. Then came
the criminal, dressed in new white
garments, with a new halter around
his neck and new ropes attached to
his arms. The ends of these ropeB
were held by policemen. The ordinary thing is for the condemned man
to walk, but in this case he was so
overcome that he had to be conveyed
in a jutkn.
On arriving at the fatal spot the
murderer was made to alight and
kneel down, while the policemen
handed over charge of the cords to
the executioner's attendants, one of
whom, seizing the end of the halter,
stood in front of the felon, while others held the cords pinioning the arms
behind. The executioner, brandishing
a broad, heavy sword, keen as a
razor, in a suggestive fashion, and
prancing up towards his victim asked three times in a loud voice: "Who
authorises the execution?" The chief
of the city police on duty thrice replied: "TJie Amin."
Then an attendant armed with a
long needle pricked the condemned
man in the back, causing him to start
forward. At the same instant those
holding the cords laid themselves
back in opposite directions as in a
tug-of-war contest, with the result
that the wretch's neck was stretched;
and, following the reply of the chief
of police, the executioner's blade descended fair and true on the neck,
severing the head completely.
"Delia," began Mrs. Newliwed, timidly, "I don't suppose—er—that you
would objeot to my getting an alarm
clock?"
"Not at all, ma'am," replied the
sleepy cook; "them things never disturb me at all."—Philadelphia Press._

The. New Postal Law.
Why is it that in any negotiations
with our astute American neighbors,
Canada is always left, with the hot
end of the poker ? Iii times past,
many a complaint has been made of
the weak-kneed policy invariably
pursued by British statesmen when
negotiating with the United States
upon issues affecting Canada^ Time
and agein have the Americans buncoed the British negotiators out of
large slices of Canadian territory.
Wc have, through habit almost,
come to expect the short end of the
deal whenever any arrangement is
made by u_i".v.:th the United States,
In view of this expectation, the new
postal convention is no surprise, ex-,
cept for the fact that instead of a
British statesman having been buncoed., it is ii Canadian. Government
department, A proposition has
been signed; sealed and delivered,
that a vast number of. Canadian
people shall; pay toll to the United
Statts post-office. Also that expatriated Canadians who continue a
connection \yith their native lancljby
subscribing to their old home paper
shall hereafter pay %5 to 50 per
cent, more for the privilege. In
fact, in some- cases, as Senator Ellis,
recently pointed out in the Senate,
the postage will be more than the
subscription price.
lt means that every Canadian
subscriber to an American periodical will have to pay the additional
postage l0 '^e American post-office,
e.-timated at $500,000 u year, in the
shnpe of an increased subscription
price. ,, The American publisher
won't lose" anything ofl the deal,'as
the Canadian subscriber must cither
pay the increase or put away the
perodical. All the scientific and
technical jotirnals which have been
for years disseminating valuable information, throughout the country—
the very educative influence our
manufacturers and students need:—
all the superbly illustrated monthlies, all the great American literary
magazines, and those devoted ;to
art and music as well as the widely
read and popular priced magazines,
whose brilliantly written articles on
topics of the times appeal to a lame
number of Can.clian people,.£11
''•.'-:,e will either have to stay out-or
pay the newspaper rates.
These papers are tieeded by in
growing nation. By studying the
periodical literature of the United
States we are made acquainted with
problems that are peculiar to. this
continent and are as much ours as
theirs., If v^e attempt, (to exclude
such .literature we deliberately
thrust aside material \ytally needed by us ini.this our growing time.
Surely it. is unjust, and the very
worst of political economy to compel the multitudes of Canadian subscribers to American periodicals to
pay an enormous amount of money
each year into the American post-
office 1—Printer and Publisher-, (Toronto), for May.

is first to draw attention and to leave a favorable

The firsl aud principal object of a very great deal of advertising
is not directly that of selling goods, bnt of establishing a worthy
fame—a recognized reputatiou—to make tlie goods and the honse
known. ' Customers must come witli some idea of the goods tncy

MRS.   W.   H.   SIMMONS
Mrs. W. H. Simmons, 1119 E. 8th
St., Kansas City., Mo., member of the
National  Annuity  association,  writes:
"My health was excellent until about
a yea.- ago, when I had a complete
collapse from overdoing socially, not
getting the proper rest, and too many
late suppers My stomach was in a
dreadful condition, and my nerves all
unstrung.
"I was advised by a friend to try
Peruna, and eventually I bought a
bottle. I took it and then another,
and kept using it for three months.
"At the end of that time my health
was restored, my nerves no longer
troubled me, and I felt myself once
more and able to assume my social
position. I certainly feel that Peruna
is  deserving  of  praise."
There are many reasons why society women break down, why their
nervous systems fall, why they have
systemic or pelvic catarrh. Indeed,
ithey are especially liable to these ail-
•ments. No wonder they reauire the
lprotection of Peruna. It Is their shield
and safeguard.

BROTHERHOOD   OP   ST.   ANDREW
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is an
o.g.ntzation ot men in the Anglican
cojimunion, the sole purpose of which
ia, in the words of the constitution,
"the spread of Clnist's kingdom
among men, especially young men.'
Tlie simplicity of the object and the
simplicity of the rules have always
bieu tue Btrengtn 01 mie Order, -lut
t.vo rul.s of the Biotherhood are, firstly, of Prayer, namely, "To pray daily
—I. the spread of Uhrist's kingdom
among men, especially young men, and
for God's blessing upon the labors of
the Brotherhood"; secondly, of Ser-
j vioa, namely, "To make at least one
earnest effort eaoh week to lead some
i man nearer, to Christ through His
| c.lurch."
The     Brotherh'iod     was    formed     in
! recognition    of    tile    fact    that    every
i Christian man is pledged to devote bis
I life   to   the   extension   of   the   kingdom
of Christ on earth.    It is composed  of
nun  who  are  understood   to   have  acknowledged   this   responsibility   as   rest-
ing on  themselves,  and  who are  ready
11   strive,   like   St.   Andrew,    to    bring
their    brother    to    the    knowledge    of
Jes as Cl——t.    This is the fundamental
principle   upon  which   the  Biotherhood
I has  been  established   and  developed.
The growth of tlie Brotherhood has
been phenomenal. From a small be
| ginning in St. James church, Chicago,
some twenty years ago, it has increased
to nearly every land in which the
Anglican communion is represented
Canada, the United States, the West
Indies, England, Scotland, Ireland and
Japan and other places have strong
centres of Brotherhood activities, the
United States branch alone comprising
15,000 members, and employing five
travelling secretaries.
The Brotherhood in Canada has at
the present time two travelling secretaries in the field, one for the west
anl the other working in the east.
Since the appointment of these men
the Brotherhood has grown from 115
chapters in 1902, with a membership of
830, to a present 326 chapters with a
membership of 3,000. The object is
not so much to increase its member
ship as it is to surround each of tlie
clergy with a band of ten or twenty
men pledged to prayer and 3erviee foi
the extension  of Christ's  kingdom.
A Dominion convention of the organization is to be held in Winnipeg,
May 23, 24, 25 and 26, 1907. Delegates
will be in attendance from all points
from Halifax to Vancouver, as well as
the United States, and many notable
speakers will attend and deliver the
addresses. A strong programme has
been prepared, and convention liters'
ture may be obtained upon application to the secretary the Dominion
convention Brotherhood of St. Andrew,
care Synod Offices, Winnipeg. Delegates from parishes where no Brotherhood chapter exists will be especially
welcome. Full particulars may be obtained  upon   application.
This is the flrst time that the Dominion convention has been held in
the west, and it should prove a great
impetus to the Brotherhood and
church work generally in thia part of
Canada.

"Before I got Baby's Own Tablets
my baby was troubled with colic and
vomiting and cried night and day,
and I was almost worn out. But after
giving him the Tablets for a few days
the trouble disappeared and you
would not know It was the same child,
he is so healthy and good-natured
now." This is the grateful testimonial
of Mrs. George Howell, Sandy Beach,

are worn out caring for cross sickly

the little one and ease to themselves.
Baby's Own Tablets promptly cure

Potasimite is a new explosive, perfected in Monterey, Mexico, and first
used with success upon the construction of a * Mexican Centra' railroad

Housemothers in Weekly Conference With Marion Harland
Beets and Dahlias.
I notice a request for directions for canning beeta without vinegar, I have put them
up uucceasf-liy for several years tn the
following manner:
Cook as usual, selecting as young and
tender beets aa possible. When tender, rub
the skins off and put In cam*, cutting only
as much as ls necessary to get the beeta
Into the cans. Fill the cans brhnful with
beets, then to overflowing with boiling
water and screw on the cover tightly.
I should like to ask for advice ln my turn.
My dahllaa grow fine and large, and bud
freely, but the buds drop oft, so that 1 have
not had & single blossom. I can discover
no vermin.   What con I do for them?
Mrs. O. (Sinclalrvllle, N. Y.).
My Kngiish gardener, to whom I have
referred the dahlia dilemma, thinks
your plants have not sunshine enough to
bring the blossoms to perfection. Dahlias, he says, "need a pile of sunlight."
They grow tall and rank ln the shade,
but wfll not flower freely. Perhaps
some horticulturist may suggest something else?
.Vinegar Without the Apples.
From the wilds of Mexico a reader would
request that you send a recipe for making
white vinegar. There are no apples or
grapes here. Also a recipe for making a
good grade of scented toilet soap.
Mrs. D. S. (Mexico).
As I said a week or two ago, a tolerably good vinegar may be made of weak
green tea, sweetened and set In a warm,
place to ferment. But thlrik of living
in a country that produces neither apples nor grapes! You have our warmest sympathy under the deprivation. I
am told that cactus figs, crushed, turn
to vinegar if left in the sun. You can
surely get these.
Will some of our excellent soapmakeri
answer the second request?
A Remedy for Fleas.
I cannot but appreciate the benefits that I
hd.ve received from your column, although I
have never asked anything through It However, I desire to oak if there Is any disinfectant or drug that would be an aid In
getting rid of fleas. We are troubled considerably with them, and would be very
grateful for a remedy.
I would say that I do not think many of
your readers know how to keep salt dry in
the _alt cellar.   If a little cornstarch were
' used   they   would   find   that   that   trouble
would be remedied.
A BUSY HOUSEWIFE (Buffalo, N. Y.).
Pennyroyal gathered green and strewed  thickly  over  the floor   and   under
beds, gathered up when dry, and burned, will drive away fleas. Oil of pennyroyal may be used by those who cannot   get   the   green   herb.     An    ounce,
stirred Into a  gallon of boiling water,
makes a wash which should be applied,
scalding hot, to bedsteads and cracks ln
and around the flooring.
I can certify to the efficiency of the
cornstarch fn preventing salt from caking ln damp weather.
Rust Stains.
Two Rescues.
(1) May  I  ask  a  favor?   I  send  you   a
Elece of my dress. The waist is lined with
lue cambric and there Is a separate blue
lining for skirt There are three narrow
ruffles on the bottom of skirt, with narrow baby-blue velvet ribbon on the edge.
The waist is a so trimmed with the ribbon.
Is there any way to clean and not wash it?
(2) I have some tapestry curtains, .olive
green and rose. Where they were draped
they got soiled by heads hitting against
them. I cleaned them with gasoline and
it took out the color. How can I restore
It? I hope I have not worn your patience
to a thread. D. O. C. (Wyoming).
The gown could be cleaned with flour
and salt, or with block magnesia, or
with powdered fuller's earth—any one
of which should be well rubbed Into
the stuff and left in for a week.
But—those ruffles and rows of velvet
libbon! Were I In your place I should
rip them off and clean them separately.
I have never heard of gasoline fading
anything. It takes out dirt, but not
'color. You might dip a corner of one
[curtain In alum water, made strong
(with ammonia, and see if the color will
return    .ven partially.
Kindly tell me through your valuable col-
timnn how to take rust stains out of a
child's white dress.
Mrs  E.  H.  O'B.
Soak all night in sour buttermilk;
next day wash In pure water, dry and
wet the spots with lemon Juice and lay
In the sun all day. Throw into pure
water at night and soak twelve hours.
Wash, then,  in the usual way.
To Preserve Eggs.
Can you give me a recipe for bouillon that
can he quickly made? Al) 1 have require
ao much time.
Some monthB ago one of our brothers, "B.
B." from Minneapolis, asked for a cake
without eggs. I do not recall seeing an
answer to this appeal. A few days ago I
found in my cook hook such a recipe, and
determined to try this means of reaching
"B.  B."
As thiB [s the season when the good housewife, ant-tlke, is preparing for winter, I
will send my recipe for keeping eggs. Make
a solution of one auart of salt and one
quart of lime (measured after it Is thoroughly slaked), two gallons of hot water.
Mix In a large vessel and set to cool; drain
off ihe solution and put into an earthenware Jar. Examine each egg carefully, for
lf one Ib cracked or impure it will ruin all.
Test each egg by placing it in a vessel of
frt>Hh water. If lt remains on the bottom
of the vessel, you put it In the solution. If
it floats at alt. it Is fit for Immediate use
alone, When the eggs reach within a few
Inches of the ton of the solution, add more
liquid. Always keep the eggs well covered.
I use a five-gallon jar and keep the eggs
until April. The lime renders the shell very
thin, so care must be taken In removing
the eggB for uae.   So much of the solution
Is absorbed by the egg often It is difficult
to separate the white from the yolk. But a
few strokes are necessary to beat the whites
perfectly stiff.
Mrs. J. H. McC.
Your services In our behalf should be
requited by something better than a
regretful—"I know of no quick way of
making bouillon." I can return no other
answer. You mh.y expedite the process
by soaking the chopped meat in cold
water for an hour before setting it
over flre. Can any wiser housemother
help our fellow-member?
The   recipe   for   eggloss  cake  will  be
found ln another column,
"Pretty Way" of Hemming.
The other day a neighbor cume in with
a dozen table noukins, asking me to hem
them my "pretty wny," as she said.
While doing so. it occurred to me thot it
might net as a suggestion to some of vour
many constituents, who need to eke out n
slender Income, If I spoke of It. It seems
to me many who buy n good quality of
table linen would be willing to pay—say
75 cents a dozen for having napkinB hemmed, or $1 for the largest size. They
are much daintier hemmed by hand, but
many have no time to spare for It. Perhaps
the linen departments of the Btores would
be wiling to call their patrons' attention to
it. if some one left cards with name and
address. There might also be work for some
one to do who knew how to wash blankets
well. ''A professional blanket washer!'' I
wish I knew one now. I know how myself,
but am not ptrong enough. In Scotland we
used  to  trample them  with our feet.
I enjoy your column very much. It seema
to be doing a helpful work in this sin-sick
world. While it seems bright to me, your
correspondence reveals much sadness everywhere, and one of the things which seems
ao sad is the need of many middle-aged
women to earn a livelihood. Some of them
cannot leave home. Hence, the reeson of
my sending along this BUfigestUm •
J. s. s.
Every good housekeeper who Tias an
eye to what you call "pretty ways,"
hems her napkins and tablecloths, or
has them hemmed by hand. This Is so
well known that the sight of a machine
hem upon napery is a positive offense to
the eye. Your suggestion that "some of
your many constituents who need to eke
out a slender income" might avail themselves of this housewifely prejudice and
offer to do neat hemming for those who
have not the time to undertake it themselves Is excellent, but not new. The
department stores to which you refer
give customers the choice of hemmed or
unhemmed table linen, sheets, etc. In
purchasing these, if the customer specifies that the work must be done by
hand, she will pay more for it than for
machine hemming. Knowing this, she
will act wisely to have the linen sent
home unhemmed, If she chance to know
of some private seamstress who will be
glad of the work. For years I had
napery, towels and bed linen hemmed
and marked with embroidered initials
by a worthy woman, who made much of
her slender income by taking in such
work. There are ln every community,
however small, those to whom emplo>-
ment of this sort would be a godsend if
housewives would seek them out Instead
of expending their own time and
strength In stitching upon "white work."
The same may be said of the new profession   you  propose—that   of   blanket

BEDSTEADS and mattresses require
vigilant care to keep them clean
and free from dust or vermin and
protected against spotting of any
sort. The whole character of any housekeeping Is unmistakably stamped by the
appearance of the bedsteads and the
mattresses when they are uncovered.
Mattresses once soiled are very difficult to clean without taking them
apart. They should never he left uncovered for any great length of time,
and when ln use ought to have slipcovers of strong muslin that can be removed and washed periodically. When
they are moved about, tbelr covers
should always be left on. It is hardly
necessary to expatiate upon the trifling work of washing these covers as
compared with cleaning the mattresses
when once they get soiled. Their covers
are also advantageous because they protect them from dust, especialy where lt
is difficult to remove in and around the
tufting. When not so protected mattresses should be swept monthly with
a whisk broom, and all of the tufts
thoroughly brushed free from dust
which may get around or In them during the Intervals between the regular
cleaning days.
Mattresses may be kept like new for
years lf they are systematically turned
dally—one day reversed from side to
side, and the next from top to bottom.
This method helps to equalize the pressure upon them of the human body, and
prevents their becoming soon packed In
spots, as they do when no attention Is
paid to mattress turning. It lightens the
labor of turning and Insures greater
variety of pressure, If mattresses for
double bedsteads are made ln sections
easy to handle.
Little quilted and washable bed protectors come neatly made and bound.
They are Inexpensive and should De a
part of the furnishing of all beds, but
especially for those of children and very
old people. They are easily made at
home, where there Is a sewing machine,
which. In these days, most houses have.
A careful housekeeper, after many years
at housekeeping with the same beds
and furniture generally, will have a
nicer house and everything In better
condition than an Inexperienced, careless one, beginning with everything new
and of the best, will have at the end
of a very few years of non-caretaking.
Twice a year, in line weather, mattresses should have a good sunning, ln
the open air, hanging over lines; while
they are outside ls a fitting time to have
them well thrashed with a bamboo rug
whlpper. This need not cause an upsetting of all the rooms at once. They
can be done, one or two at a time,
gradually, but methodically, in order
not to overlook any one.
JUNE THE BEST MONTH
Here again, the housewife's notebook
will be found serviceable, because she
can check off each one when it is done.
A family of ordinary size may have
about eight or perhaps ten mattresses.
Taking two or three a day, or having
them done when the room where they
belong Is being cleaned, the job will
not be at all formidable. But a sun
bath four hours twice a year ought to
be given to every mattress that is In
constant use. One should be given in
very cold, clear, frosty weather. And
June is usually the best month for the
other sun and air bath. It is safe to
assert that those who are so fortunate
as to sleep on beds thus cared for will
be in less danger of suffering from insomnia, and will enjoy better health
than others who sleep on non-aired and
packed mattresses. The reason is apparent, for one is wholesome and the
other unwholesome. Of course, after
the mattreBS has been out In extremely
cold weather It should bfi placed in a
warm room long enough to take the
chill oft before any one sleeps on It, or
else ft should have a hot Iron passed
over it on both sides before the bed Is
made up to be immediately occupied.
Common sense should always be used
when rules and regulations about a
house are being made or followed.
It ls a good plan to have wire lines
put up on piazzas or on second-story
roofs accessible from windows, and
then mattress airing Is simplified and
the labor minimized. Another advantage
of this airing Is that in case of a sudden
shower they can be taken in quickly,
and therefore escape getting damp. By
first spreading down a large piece of
unbleached muslin upon a sunny roof,
the mattresses can lie out there with
safety. A clever woman of ideas will,
after one or two hints, think of ways
and means for airing and doing the
many things that fall under this head
of house management. The great secret
for all thorough housekeepers to learn
and faithfully practice Is, "Let your
head save your heels a journey." There
will be always steps enough to keep
their blood in good circulation.
People living in crowded cities, with
little or no yard space, and those unfortunates who dwell In flats, will, of
course, have to content themselves with
airing before open windows; better that
than none at all; but they will require
window ventilation for their mattresses
six times as often as the happy beings
who live where they can have a patch
of green grass all their own and ample
airing space outside their houses. Pillows, bolsters and everything filled with
feathers or down should be treated
much the same as mattresses.
Pillows and bolsters can be kept in
good condition by pinning them on lines
out ln the open air, and letting them get
a thorough sun and air bath. If they can
be spared long enough It does them good
to have a summer shower bath, provided
they can be left outside afterward to
get perfectly dry. But this should never
be done during a damp season. The
right time is when sunshine and showers
alternate, and when the sunshine lasts
long enough to dry whatever is outside.
Pillows and bolsters, as well as mattresses, should have slip covers. On
some accounts slip covers for pillows
are even more necessary than any of the
others, as pillows are, in many ways,
more exposed to soil and are unsightly
and unpleasant If not perfectly clean.
washing. The woman who can cleanse
blankets without "fulling" or stretching
them, and who adds to this accomplishment that of washing flannels without
shrinking them, should certainly be able
to turn a tidy dollar over many times a
week if she would hang out her shingle
and distribute cards in her neighborhood. Husbands and bachelors would,
rise up and call her blessed, and wifely
brows gather fewer anxious lines than
now accumulate with the overseeing of
the weekly wash.

'Restoring Shrunken Flannels."
I notice under the above heading that one
of your correspondents ts desirous of obtaining a recipe for "shrinking," which waa
fubllshed In your Corner some time ago.
cut out the said recipe at the time, and
now take pleasure in inclosing it for the-
benefit of your correspandent.
Here is the clipping:
"I prepared a hot. 'sudsy water with soap
powder; put in the flannels and let them
soak a couple of hours; by thot time the
water was cold. . _
"I added more hot water and rubbed them
by hand until clean, adding a little more
of the soao powder, then rinsed them In
clear hot water, and dried by a hot flre. or
over a register. They came out much
softer and continuing the process from week
to week the fibres gradually loosened up
and the garments became almost afl large
as at first."
I send this in answer to the appeal of
"Worried Mother." A child here was left
veVy deaf by measles. Her father took
her to a specialist, who taught her to hold
her nose and blow her breath through
her ears. This relieved her In less than

THE EXTRA BABY
The Dry Shampoo
AMONG all the bitter tragedies of
childhood there ls none so terrible as that of being the extra
baby ln the home, whom nobody
wants. Yet there's an extra child in
many a family—some one who doesn't
"belong" ln the full sweet sense of the
word. Nothing in the whole wide
world ever makes up for it.
You can bear it better when you are
older, after you've learned not to care,'
not to expect the sort of affection
you've longed for so passionately,
though it's not a good lesson to have
to learn. But the unhapplness of a
little, puzzled being, trying his best
to understand why his sister, or
brother—or both—is loved and petted,
while he himself is always In the
way, is pitiful.
There Is never any reason for it.
That is the terrible part of It; lt Is
apparently Just a curious marking of
fate, which leaves one child lonely and
wistful In a family where affection
and Interest are the rule, with that
one pathetic exception.
Here Is the story of one child, who
thought, from the time she was old
enough to think, that Bhe didn't belong to her mother. Her father she
was sure of—everybody told her she
"was the Image of him," but her con-
stunt fear was that her mother would
find her out and send her away!
Another little child, with tl.-t horror of the dark which amounts to positive disease among some nervous
children, cried herself to Bleep night
after night, creeping down under the
coverB to hide the sobs which would
come, but which ah' dared not let any
one hear.
And another — there are millions of
like cases — used to say "she wasn't
frightened," and promise "to be good
and not bother any one If father and
mother went out." And then, after they
went, ehe would cry her little heart out
with the fright and loneliness of the
empty house. Tiny as she was, she had
learned to He about her fears — had
learned to dread the hard, Impatient
look that was their inevitable reception.
And now?  She 1« IP now. and has never
been chums with either father or mother. "She is so hard to control," they
sigh! Would she have been lf circumstances had been different?
There's usuuliy enuugb mother love to
go around, no matter how big a family
of babies are about her. It's more ofic!
the father who takes a curious antipathy to one of his children—perhaps because he and the child are too muc-.
alike. Then it takes all a mother's ta—
to prevent open rupture, which usually
takes the form, while the child is little
of tyrannical punishment.
You men and women with babies, look
to it that among them there s none eating his baby heart out ln a passionate
hunger for the love and petting which
are his birthright. Even if he's not si
cunning as his chubby sister, nor sc
bright as his sturdy brother, he's youi;
—yours to love and to give a herltagl
of only happy child memories to. ThinK
of tho woman who'd give anything t<
huve him to love — who would kiss din -
pies into those sober cheeks. Then realize, If you can, that the pain of her conscious loneliness is surpassed by hi)
baby protests against something h£
doesn't unders'and.
He's your i'aoy, but he's only your.
in the true i nso of the word when he
knows It, and knows too, that he car

Giving a Delicate Scent to
Lingerie.
THE well-bred woman always avoids
anything  like   a   strong  perfume
about her clothes or person, but a
faint suggestion of violets,  so delicate
thnt lt ls a mere breath, Is always permissible.
Many women object, and with reason,
to the reminiscence of the laundry odors
that clings to their underwear and
handkerchiefs. If a piece ot orris root
is added to the water in which they are
boiled, the garments will come out fresh
and dainty, with the delicate vlolei
breath about them.
Something New in Postcards
IT TAKES marked originality to get
out anything new in illustrated postals at this late day, therefore the
following will be welcomed;
Flowers and leaves of heavy velvet
cover one variety all over. Standing
out a quarter of an Inch from the card,
they are odd, lf not pretty.
Another on the same order has tho
heavily embossed picture of a well-
known actress upon lt. Everywhera
that Jewels could possibly be Indicated
a dot or line of colored tinsel has been
placed, giving the whole a striking appearance.
Still another, In black and white, gives
three   photographs    of   the    actor    or
actress, two of them being ln costume,
and a signed motto in fac simile of his
or his or her handwriting. All the
prominent players now In Philadelphia
are represented.
Sure to bring good luck Is the furry
llttle rabbit's foot, tied to a card, which
declares that "it was caught in a
churchyard tn the dark of the moon,"
and a lot more about Master Bunny'*
history.
Another good luck postal shows a
bright penny tied beside the painted
wlBhbone. Some youngster will appreciate this, and his sister will be delighted with the story of Little Red
Rid Riding Hood, told ln a series of
seven cards.
IF you are so susceptible to cold that
you fear to wet your hair di'rtng
the winter months, try the dry orris
shampoo, ln connection with massage
and brushing.
Purchase 10 cents worth of powdered orris—It will be sufficient for two
shampoos, unless the growth ls very
heavy — carefully brush the hair,
working it through with the fingertips, tie the head up ln a towel and
allow lt to remain over night. The
orris will absorb the oil and dirt from
the hair and scalp during the night,
and may be brushed from the bead In
the morning.
If you have any doubts as   to  tbe
efficiency of this method of shampooing, spread a white cloth over the
bureau or dressing table, to catch the
powder as it falls; brush the hair free
and see the complexion of the orrla
Some little -— it may cling to the balr
for a day or two, when with the
nightly brushing lt will disappear.
Not only ls this an effective shampoo, but a very agreeable one, Imparting » dainty evanescent odor to the
hair. The head and hair may be kept
In perfect condition by this means, together with frequent airi.igs, brushing and massagings, until warmer
days make it safe to resort to the wet
shampoo again.
ADJUSTABLE PICTURE FRAMES
ONE woman, who came back from
her first trip to Europe with her
trunk trays well tilled .with pho-
tographs, Invented a clever way
of enjoying her collection, Instead of the
usual wny of putting it In a cabinet and
contenting herself with an occasional
peep.
Her photographs were roughly classified Into two gruups—large and small.
Not many of them were exactly the
same size, but the two classes served the
purpose.
All the large ones were mounted upon
heavy mats—the mats all of the same
size, and each photograph carefully
spaced to the best advantage of Its
size and shape. The small ones were
treated ln the same way, with smaller
mats.
Then she had frames made In the
sizes of the two mats, Just gold or silver headings made into the simplest
sort of frames, fitted out with clear
glass, and finished with heavy cardboard backs that slipped in, and were
held In place by little metal n range-
ments which turned on tiny pivots
—the same- sort of things that often
fasten photograph frames-and each
frame wus finished wilh screw-eyes and
picture wires.
Into these frames photographs (In
sets, or a collection of single subjects
chosen with an eye to their setting each
other off) were slipped and carefully
hung. They wouid stay on .he walls
for three or four weeks, wl-.n they
would be succeeded by other sets, radically different in character.
ln this wuy every beautiful photograph could be enjoyed In a leisurely
manner, Instead of the wearylngly rapid
crowding of images upon eyes and brain,
such as studying a collection is apt to
occasion. It was more like the Japanese Idea of showing one beautiful bit
if bric-a-brac at a time, and putting
out of sight all the rest, sv that there '
is nothing to distract attention from »_,
calm,  appreciative  contemplation.       »

Place for the Nursery
"-pOO OFTEN the nursery Is given
I minor consideration. Any room
* that Ib good for nothing else ls
considered good enough for this purpose. On tho contrary, the health of
the child depends greatly upon the situation of the nursery, for here it spends
most of ita waking hours. The nursery, then, should be bright, light,
easily heated and easily ventilated. The
higher up the better, for here nre purer
air and more sunshine to be found.
It should never be next to tne bathroom
If there la a communicating door.
The Revival of Gitteryl
Needlework
GITTERYL,   an   old   Danish   handcraft, has just been revived in
London,  Paris,  Berlin and Copenhagen.
Catharine de Medicls   had   her   bedA
draped    with    g.tteryl,    and    beautiful,
hangings   and   altar   cloths   made   In-,
the   rixteenth  century  aro   still  preserved  In  England.    There  ls such a^
wealth of romance and historical association    combined   wit'    the   quaint .
mediaeval  simplicity  of  the   work   that
this needlework  is becoming quite  the
lateB1   f.iil  in   England.
The groundwork is a square mesh
net. and comes In many sizes of mesli •
and In muny widths of material. Tho
stitch is merely darning, but differs'
, from the darning seen so much last
winter, In that it is usually recrossed.
It is also worked diagonally on cream
or white thread net, and pule green,
blue and yellow net are al- u~ed for
this uid-tlme needlework. The old
cross itlteh samplers are being
brought to light and t|- old designs
reproduced In gitteryl.
Ball fringe Is being used to trim
sash curtains decorate 1 by this
Medlework. Blouses and dresses and
bed draperies are also being ornamented with it, while It is being

chlefB In the laundering? They
nre pulled out of shape, streaked at one

The average laundress hangs a bundle
