The Work Simple In Method, battle-
quires Care and Patience In tke
Rendering—iome lla'talli. of Practice—Two  Suitable  Deign..
Tooled leather is a German revival of
an old art It conies to us. according
to a writer in Good Housekeeping, ln
which the accompanying designs occur, by way of England and Trance,
and there is now a great demand for
the work, but few to do it
Tbe method is simple, but requires
care and patience in rendering.   Two
steel modeling tools, spoon shaped, and
two background tools will be sullicient
for most work. As students become
proficient in the art more may be needed. The leather used is the best calfskin. This can be procured In beuuti-
ful shades from the lightest tan to
dark brown, also In other colors, but
ns the colored leather easily spots in
working the tan shades nre recommended, giving the best results.
Cut from the smooth part of the
leather the shape of the article to be
tooled, allowing n good hnlf inch nil
around for finishing. Sponge the leather with water on both sides, the underside first Hace the leather on several
thicknesses of paper nnd wait a few
moments for the leather to absorb the
moisture. Then take your design, which
has been carefully drawn on pnper,
nnd plnce on the leather. Hold it firmly ln place with one hand and witb
tracing tool trace around the design
with firm pressure. Ilemove the paper
design, and tbe indented design will be
found on the leather.
The leather is now ready for tooling
and should again be sponged on both
sides, allowing it to absorb moisture
before beginning work on It With the
modeling tool press the leather down
all around tbe design, keeping the tool
close to the design. Continue this pressing till the design stands out clear from
the background, but at tho same time
be careful not to cut into the leather.
Space does not here permit the de-
tails given In the journal mentioned of
rubbing the background, raising the
design and filling and lining the back,
but all appear to be simple, straightforward operations.
Beautiful effects are produced by coloring or tinting the design. Two coloring mediums can bo used, oil paint
thinned with turpentine or dye. If
dye ls used the dye for cotton goods
is required. Tor use Iu coloring leather
dissolve a portion of the dye ln cold
water, add this to a small quantity of
boiling water nnd boil the dye about
five minutes. When cool turn into bottles. For coloring the leather dilute
wltb cold water aud apply with u soft
Planla In the  House.
We very often hear notes of warning about the bad effects which accrue
from having plants In our living rooms.
Such talk ls exaggerated, according to
ii writer In American Gardening. During the day the plants aro assimilating
the carbon dioxide which our lungs are
giving off and giving us back the oxygen In u free state. The small amount
of oxygen which they require to build
themselves up Is infinitesimal, and Its
loss could not injure any one. It may
not be advisable to have plants In a
sleeping room, ns assimilation stops
when the sun goes down. Carbon Is
then given off and oxygon consumed,
The effect would be the same as a
number of people sleeping In one room,
but this does not apply to any other
room, as assimilation commences again
with the rising of the sun.

Tidy cotton No. 14 was used for this
design, one ball being a little more
than enough for two. This bib may
be made more fancy by drawing a delicate ribbon through tbe spaces. To
make the bib more serviceable a cord
should be drawn through the neck

stitch whero joined, work 2 s. c. for a
comer, 1 s. c. In the next stitch; 2 s. c.
in next for corner, 1 s. c. In next; 2 s. c.
in next for corner, and so on until 0
corners nre started; then one more single nnd the row ls taken up. Join on
the first single, not on the 1 ch.
Third to Eleventh Bow-All are
worked In the same way, except that
in every row 1 stitch is increased. Always start at a corner and join on the
first single. Tbis makes the joining almost invisible.
Twelfth Bow.—Do not turn, but
chain 25 from the joining. (This is for
one side of neck.) Now turn and work
back ovor the chain, also the hexagon,
to the second last corner, making increases only on the three corners between. There chain 25 for the other
side of tho neck. Turn and work back
and forth around the whole bib to the
other side of the neck until there nre
three and one-half ribs to the side.
Where tbe bib ties on the back make
the ribs round, or they may be left
square if preferred.
Now work back and forth and on
each beginning of a row stitch over
4 stitches and work to within 4
stitches on the otlier end. Do thus
until at least 4 ribs (not rows) are
made. Now add to it as many ribs as
you wish it in length, running them
over the lower two sections, decreasing
1 stitch ln the beginning of n row to
keep the edge in line with the rest.
Work all around with 1 chain spaces
and finish with fancy scallops.
Hero the scallops arc made by working nronnd the bib twice, first with
0 double crochets into a double over
the spaces, then fastened to tho next,
then 2 chain and fasten on the next
double; then repeat all around, except
around tbe neck. There finish the scallop with n 3 chain plcot between the
doubles nnd do not leave the space between scallops.
Second row of scallops: Work 2
doubles with n plcot of 3 chain on

This makes the outer and last row full-

Valuable Iiifot-nintlon Abont Alkali*
nnd Other Cleanser*.
Chloride of lime has many valuable
properties. It removes stains of various
sorts, takes out scorched marks antl
acts as a disinfectant uud bleach. It
must be carefully prepared und judiciously used. Put two ounces of chloride of lime in three coffee cup fulls of
cold water, stirring lt frequently with
a stick. At the end of nn bour leave
the solution to settle, nfter which *lt in
strained through fine muslin and bottled for use. This simple formula is*
quotPd from nn English authority on
laundering. Yellowed linens or inns
Hns left overnight In a bath of coin
water to which a very little of thiv
chloride solution has been added will
whiten beautifully. Great care must
be taken to add only a little, ns its notion is malicious if too great a quantity
Is used. Concerning still other cleansing agents, a writer in the New Idea
Magazine says:
Soda, potash, ammonia nnd borax an-
the alkalis in general use. It must be
remembered that both sodn and potash
will leave the articles treated with
tbem yellow if tbey are not properly
used. Their values aro positive, but
limited. Potash, used so exteijslvely
in the manufacture of coarse, strong
soaps, is nn excellent cleanser for very
dirty articles, but it cannot be used on
fine fabrics.
Ammonia !s known ns tbe "volatile
nlkalj." It evaporates after Its office
is performed, leaving no trace of its
presence except the finished work, like
Grimm's fairy cobblers. It is invaluable as n cleanser of white wools because of this very quality, as lt Is the
alkali remaining in the imperfectly
rinsed flannels that hardens them and
makes them unlit for use. It should
be put in the water on the very instant
of its use. If added too soon it evaporates without having done the least
service and leaves the inexperienced
blanchlsscusc wondering why her flannel is yellow ocher Instead of milky
Borax is one of the finest alkalis. It
is used in washing the most delicate
fabrics and in cleansing colored materials and embroideries. Used In starch,
it adds a little to the stiffness and helps
to give a clenr gloss. But it must be
used discreetly on account of the expense.   It is a costly aid.
Washing powders nre valuable he\>s
ns cleansers and whlteners if their
properties are understood. Used intelligently, they are great economists of
labor and really save something of the
wear on all fabrics washed with them
by softening the dirt so that it can be
extracted without the old, protracted
and strenuous toil at the washboard.
Bran ls used when the fabric to bo
washed is dyed, printed or embroidered
with delicate colors or, for that matter,
with any colors. Alkali is an enemy to
color. Why else should we use lt as a
bleach or stain extractor? So soap,
which is a combination of alkali and
grease, must be tabooed. Tbe bran Is
saponaceous, but contains no alkali;
therefore it can bo safely used in washing colored fabrics and embroideries
and colored wools (knitted und crocheted work).
To prepare bran water for use put
two bandfuls of bran ln one quart of
water. Let boll for one-half hour, strain
carefully through a sieve and boll the
bran in a second quart of water another half hour. Cool and reduce with
warm water when needed.

The wreath of small llowers has long
been a favorite evening headdress, but
it ls now u trifle out of style. At any
rate lt 'is only becoming to u well

Gray ball gowns are a novelty of tbe
season, but this demands bright hair
and a brilliant complexion. An evening
gown of pule gray oriental satin seen
recently hud a wide girdle of silver
ribbon and u white bertha of creamy
duchess lace. The skirt was laid lu flut
plaits at the waist and flared out into a

the coat looks as though it were hanging Upon the shoulders of a person perfectly appointed even to the tie.
When once these hangers have been
regularly used they will be found to be
absolutely indispensable adjuncts to
the wardrobe, l-'or the making of one
coat hanger one and a half yards of
cotton wool, one ounce sachet powder
nnd two nnd a half yards of good ribbon about three Inches wide are required.
Another desirable arrangement ls a
pair of scissors that can hang ln any
room without lieing lost and at the
same time add,to the decorative effect
of the room. If balanced at the other
end of a pincushion they can be bung
round the neck of a needlewoman so
that her tools never need bo lost
Besides the scissors, three and a half
yards of good ribbon three-fourths of
an Inch wide will be required and threo
dozen brass rings of the smallest size.
A loop nt the top is first made, and
then thirty-four of the ring*, are threaded through with the ribbon, so that a
firm and heavy chain is nude. At tho
.bottom of this two pieces of the ribbon,
each about a quarter of a yard iu
length, are added and terminated by
the two remaining rings.
The handles of the scissors aro threaded by these ends, which are then turned
up and hung by the rings on to a hook
fastened at the back and end of tbe
chain of rings. The beginning and end
of the chain nro then finished with full
bows of the ribbon.
The chain Is so pretty when It Is
made that it can be used by an ingenious person for all sorts of things.
If large rings nnd a broad, handsome
ribbon arc used, very handsome tic-
backs for curtains can thus be formed.

ceived number? or destitute aliens of
tlio animal world from the holds of the
banana ships. The trade in bananas
is au enormous one, und many of them
come from sources at no great distance,
whence the fruit cau be brought without cold storage. Tlie big clusters of
bananas are peculiarly adapted for harboring "stowaways." Among these are
enumerated numbers of small, barm-
less snakes, lizards of various kinds,
occasionally, it is said, a young iguana
and large and particularly venomous
spiders. But real pests which survive
and increase in a new country are fortunately rarely transported accidentally. The one serious instance is the
chlgo, or "jigger." It is said to have
been transported from Central America
to the Kast Indies.
The Colorado beetle bas never succeeded in making a borne in England,
though mosiiuiloes of a peculiarly ferocious though nonmalarial kind aro said
to have appeared in English hotels.

Bird "stowaways" on ships are very
numerous in the narrow parts of the
Mediterranean-during the migration.
They also frequently alight on ships
wben these are near the coast, being
then very much exhausted and glad to
find "a rest for the soles of their feet."
(iolden crested wrens sometimes descend in a storm on some North sea
smack on a migration night and even
alight on steamers by day. It was
confidently stated that a golden crested
wren was seen to fly from off the back
of a short eared owl when the latter
came in from the sea and alighted near
a jetty on the east coast.
The belief that some littlo birds come
as "stowaways" on the backs of larger
ones was held in reference to the Canada geese by the North American Indians nnd by the Turks of Cyprus, who
alleged the same of the crane and
6tork. That some birds must travel
great distances on ships crossing the
Atlantic seems probable. The American bittern nnd two American cuckoos
have been found in England, the first
rather frequently. It is conjectured
that they can only have crossed the
ocean by traveling on the masts and
yards of ships, probably steamers, at
otherwise tliey must have died of starvation.- London Spectator.

Barbarous Trenttnent of Ibo Women.
The Ibos have u barbarous custom of
destroying twins. A woman who gives
birth to twins is regarded as something accursed, and the children nro
taken from ber and thrown Into the
bush to perish, while she is proclaimed un outcast nnd driven from the vil-
luge. To hold up two lingers to an
Ibo woman is to offer her tho greatest
insult possible. They are very superstitious. They worship idols of wood,
mud and iron, which are regarded ns
protectors to be propitiated nt various
periods, and slavery exists among all
the tribes.

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged frem the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise.       All    live
