R   ... ^  TK-4 people of this province make it their boast and  pnde.jliat besides the great lumber and mining industries  there* are also districts, rich valleys, where those who are  ��������� so inclined may follow the time honored occupation of tilling the'soil and its attendant occupations aud become  prosperous and contented.  ..^Tliese farming communities, although in some instan-  -Ce'S.smal^ occupy themselves in a particular industry.  ' bkaiiagan grows fruii; Fraser Valley, fruit and butter,  , Nicola, cattle raising. Many of the Vancouver Island  ���������districts aye more for general farming including the making of butter',  *0. The staple industry of Comox Valley is butter-making  -aiid most "excellent butter it is too.    While many of the  ^farmers make their own butter, a number of them have  fdrmed an association and have their butter made at a central creamery.  It was our pleasure and profit to visit this creamery at  Courtenay.the other day and be shown through the establishment,    Mr. Carroll, the manager who takes pride in  , his work Undertook to intiate us into the   mysteries   of  1 butter-making.    He explained  that when the   milk   is  . brought to the creamerv a sample is taken out   of  each  ���������?   ���������    ,i* *���������  farmers can for the purpose of testing. This is done  several times a week- The cream is then placed in the  vats aud heated in winter or cooled in summer as the case  may'be.    When at the right temperature the cream is run  . into an oblong churn and churned.     A full sized churn-  "~iiT|ypkH^^ It is'then^placed"  on ,tli������ titular worker when it is salted, mixed and made.  , into, one pound; prints. ��������� It is then put into wrappers and  n .tal$ei\,to, the store ^oom;.Awgiting shipment.  :,. 4j$B^heiday Of^our visit 3200 pounds of-butter were  cased, ready  to be shipped the next day.    Once a week  1 W;H. Malcolm, of Vancouver, and F.R. Stewart of Victoria receive a consignment from the creamery. The  local market is supplied about once a week also.  There is. a great demand for Comox butter, aud the  company i'iud no difficulty iu marketing their product,  notwithstanding competition from the other provincial  creameries aud the large quantities shipped from prairie  provinces,  One great advantage of the Comox creamery is that  the excellent clover, grass and hay of the valley gives better returns than from any other part of  the   province, or  the provinces immediately across the mouutain, where the  feeding is uot so uniform,  At present there are about thirty patrons of the creamery. None of them live at any great distance, Each has  to see that his own cream reaches the creamery and to  make sure of this men are hired to collect aud Haul the ,  am  cream which must be at the creamery by eight o'clock in  the morning.  The creamery has been in existence for six years. The  first year 29,000 pounds were manufactured while last  year there were about 90,000 pounds. If all the  ranchers of the district deemed it wise to send their cream  to the creamery at least 200,000 pounds of butter could be  turned out annually, and at less expense.  There is one matter We wish to call particularly to the  attention, of our readers, as many of them enjoy the excellent product of this creamery, and that is its neat clean  -appearance and its surroundings also cool store room  and uo customer need fear to use the butter. Mr Carroll  is au experienced mau and knows his business. He has  been five years with the Company, and if the management have their way he is likely to remain many more  years, Before coming to Courtenay he was for a number  of years on the Mainland, and while at Mission had the  honor of supplying the royal train with butter wheu the  Tintr*������ r'tit-1 Durham of VorV viiited the PneinV Point. Mr  Cnrroll first learned checse-mtikitig in Oxford eounty,Out.  and spent over five years in various factories before dweid-  Jngto devote his time to buttermaking.  The Nkws hopes the Comox butter trade will continue  to improve, and that the day is not far distnn* when nil  the ranchers will be patrons of this prosperous aud popular industry situated in their midst.

CHAPTER XVII.  THERE was much doing that  winter in the Linley district.  They were a month getting  ready for the school "exhibition." Every home in the valley and  up Cedar hill rang with loud declamations. The impassioned utterances of  James Otis, Daniel Webster and Patrick Henry were heard in house and  field and stable. Every evening women were busy making costumes for a  play, while the young rehearsed their  parts. Polly Vaughn, editor of a paper  to be read that evening, searched the  countryside for literary talent. She  found a young married woman wbo  had spent a year in the State Normal  school and who put her learning at the  service of Polly in a composition treating the subject of intemperance. Miss  Betsey Leech sent in what she called  "a piece" entitled "Home." Polly herself wrote an editorial on "Our Teacher," and there was hemming and haw-  tag when she read it, declaring they  all had learned much, even to love  him. Her mother helped her with tbe  alphabetical rhymes, each a couplet of  sentimental history, as, for example:  A Is for Alson, a Jolly young man;  He'll marry Miss Betsey, they say, It he  can.  They trimmed the little schoolhouse  with evergreen and erected a small  ���������stage where the teacher's desk had  been. Sheets were hung for curtains  on a ten foot rod.  A while after dark one could hear a  sound of sleighbells in the distance.  Away on drifted pike and crossroad  the be.is began to fling their music. It  -seemed-to-cpme-in-rippling-strpams'Of"  sound through the still air, each with  its own voice. In half an hour countless echoes filled the space between  them and all were as one chorus, wherein, as it came near, one could distinguish song and laughter.  Young people from afar came in cutters and by the sleigh load; those who  lived near, afoot witli lanterns. They  were a merry company, crowding the  schoolhouse, laughing and whispering  as they waited for the first exhibit.  Trove called them to order and made  a few remarks.  "Remember," said he, "this is not  our Exhibition, It is only a sort of.  preparation for one'we have plann������d.  In about twenty years the Linley school  Is to give an exhibition worth seeing.  It will be, I believe, an exhibition of  happiness, ability nnd success on tho  groat stage of the world. Then I hope  to have on tho programme speeches ln  congress, In the pulpit and at the bar.  You shall see In that play, if 1 mistake  not, homes full of love and honor, men  and women of fair fame. It may be  you shall seo, then, some whose names  <ire known and honored of ull men,"  Each performer'quaked with, fear,  and both sympathy und approval were  In the applause. MIbb Polly Vaughn  was a rare picture of rustic beuuty,  her cheeks as red as her ribbons, her  voice low and sweet. Trove came out  in the audience for a look at her as  she road, Ringing salvos of laughter  greeted tho play nnd stirred the sleigh-  bells on the startled horses beyond the  door, The prograraiuo ovor, somebody  called for Squire Town, a local petti-  fogger, wbo flung bin soul nnd body Into every cause. Ue often sored his  knuckles on tbe court table nnd racked  blB frnmo with tbe violence of his rhot-  orlc, Ue hnd a stock of Impassioned  remarks ready for all occasions,  Ho rose, walked to the center of tbe  stage, looked sternly nt the people nud  addressed them as "fellow cltlxeus,"  Ho belabored tbe small table; ho rose  oo tiptoe and fell upon bis heels; often  be seemed to fling his words with a  rapid jerk of bis right arm ns one  burls a pebble, It wus all in praise of  bis "young friend," the teacher, and  tho high talent of Linley school.  The exhibition ended with this rnre  exhibit of eloquence, Trovo announced  tLt organisation cf a ringing rrhoel for  Mfinrtny rve'hlng of tho nott work, nnd  then suppressed emotion burst Into  noise. The Linley schoolhouse bad become ns a fount of merry sound in tbe  still night; then tbe loud chorus of the  WHs, <l!iu!a!t>]jJfiC oo they ivcnt wny  nnd breaking Into streams of music  nnd dying fnlnt In tbe far woodlnnd.  One Nelson Cnrtrlght-a jack of nil  trades tbey called blm-wna the singing  master. Ho was noted far nnd wide  for soriff nnd penmanship. Bvery year  bis Intricate flourishes In black nud  white were on exhibition nt tho county  fair.  "Waal, sir," men used to say thoughtfully, "ye wouldn't think bt knew  beans. Why, he's pot ��������� fist blgger'n a  bam. But I tell ye, let him take a pen,  tlr, nnd WI ������*������������*,l������ d������"*r ao oat'ral. sir.  i ye'd swear "he could JTimp ������yie a" ttt  rail fence. Why, it Is wonderful!"  Every winter he taught the arts of  song and. penmanship in the four districts from Jericho to Cedar bill. He  sang a roaring bass and beat the time  with dignity .and precision. For weeks  he drilled the class on a, bit of lyric  melody, of which a passage Is here  given.  "One, two, three, ready, sing," he  wouid say, his ruler cutting the air,  and all began:  Listen to the bird and the maid and the  humblebee,  Tra, la la la la, tra.. la la la la;  Joyfully we'll sing the gladsome melody,  Tra, la la la la.  The singing school added little to the  knowledge or the cheerfulness of'that  neighborhood. It came to an end the  last day of the winter term. As usual,  Trove went home with Polly. It was a  cold night, and as the crowd left them  at the corners he put his arm around  her. '  "School is over," said she, with a  sigh, "and$m sorry."  "For me'?!:'.he inquired.  "For myself,'! she answered, looking  down at the snowy path.  There came a little silence crowded  with happy thoughts.  "At first I thought you very dreadful," she went on, looking up at him  with a smile. He could see ber sweet  face in the moonlight and was tempted  to kiss it.  "Why?"  "You were so terrible," she answered.  "Poor Joe Beach!. It seemed as if he  would go through the'wall."  "Well, something had to happen to  -hlm.'i-saidJiie teacher.  "He likes you now, and every one  likes you here. I wish we could have  you always for a teacher."  "I'd be willing to be your teacher always if I could only teach you what  you have taught me."  "Ob, dancing," said she������merrily.  "That is nothing. I'll give you all the  lessonB you like."  "No, I shall not let you teach me  that again," said he,  "Why?"  "Because your pretty feet trample  on me."  Then came another, silence.  "Don't you enjoy it?" she asked,  looking off at the stars.  "Too much," said he. "First, I must  teach you something, if I can."  He was ready for a query if It came,  but she put him off.  "I Intend to be a grand lady," said  she, "and lf you do not lenrn you'll  never be able to dance wltb me."  "There'll be others to dance with  you," said he. "I bave so much else to  do."  "Oh, you're always thinking about  algebra and arithmetic and those  dreadful things," said she.  "No. I'm thinking now of something  yery,, different."  "Grammar, I suppose," snld she, look-  Ing down.  "Do., fyotj remember the conjugations?" ������  "Try mo," snld she.  "Give me tho first person singular,  pnsslve voice, present tense, of tbt  verb to lovo."  "I nm loved," was her answer as  she looked nwny. ���������    _.*,,-  "And don't you know! love you?"  said he quickly.  "Thnt Is tho nctlve voice," said she,  turning, with n smile,  "Polly," snld he, "I love you as I  could love no other In the world,"  lie drew her close, nnd she looked  up nt him vory Boberly.  "You lovo me?" she said tn a balf  whisper,  "With nil my heart," ht answered.  "I hope you will love me somo time,"  Their lips enme together.  i   "T do not nuk vou now tn ens tbat  you lore tot,* said tbe young nan.

Mrs. Vaughn was waiting for tbem  at the fireside.  They sat talking awhile.  "You go off to bed, Polly." said the  teacher presently. "I've something te  eay, and you're not to hear it."  "I'll listen," said she, laughing.  "Then we'll 'whisper," Trove an-  twered.  "That isn't fair," she said, with ������  look of Injury, as she held the candlev  "Besides, you don't allow it yourself."  "Polly ought to go away to school,"  ���������aid he, after Polly bad gone abovf  stairs.   "She's a bright girl."  "And I so poor I'm always wonder-Q  lag what'Jl happen tomorrow," said  There was an awkward silence.  Mrs/Y?ughP.   "The farm has a mortgage, and it's more than I can do to  pay the interest.  Some day I'll have to  give it up."  "Perhaps I can, help you," said tbe  young man, feeling the fur on his cap.  There was an awkward silence.  "Fact is," said the young man, a bit  embarrassed���������"fact is, I love Polly.".  In the silence that followed Trove  eoirid hear the tick of his watch.  "Have ye spoken to her?" said thi  widow, with a serious look.  "Vve told her frankly tonight that I  lovs her," said he. "1 couldn't help It,  ah* was so sweet andbeautifuK"  "If you couldn't help it, I don't r������e  ho V I could," said she.

UPSTAIRS. "���������'  It Causes an Excessive and Injurious  Strain on the System.  Bvery one knows that the ascent ot  a staircase is more fatiguing than ordinary walking. In walking progression  Is effected by a sueceallbn of lifts, to-  clinations and swings.  In starting the body la lifted, for ex- i j  ample, by the levers of the right foot!]  and Is inclined forward.   Tbe left foot j <  being then raised from the ground, tbe j  leg swings forward and is carried by;  Its momentum beyond the right foot   !  The levers of the left foot now llftj  the body again, and the right leg,  swings forward, and so tbe body oscil- *  lates along on a pair of pendulums..  Short pendulums vibrate more quickly  than long ones, and therefore short  legged people step quicker than long1  legged people, though with no morti  sense of exertion.  In going upstairs tbt mechanism of  progression is of course tbe same, but!  the^ lifting action, which is the real*  force consuming part of the process, is  now greatly increased.  Instead of being just sufficient to admit of the free swing of tbe pendulum  foot It must be so great as to project  the body up at each step a distance  equal to the height of the stair.  Running upstairs is thus an excessive strain upon tbe constitution, but  where does this strain fall? The levers  of motion are moved Immediately by  the muscles, but the muscles cannot  act of themselves.  Their contractions and relaxations  take place only under stimulus. Tbey  are all connected by lines of force, called nerves, with the nervous centers,  and these are the purees of muscular  stimulation.  Not that the nerve force of the brain  is converted into the mechanical movement of progression, but nerve force is  constantly drawn upon to maintain  the action of tbe muscles, and this  draft is always greatest where there la  a sense of exertion.  When bodily vigor Is bigh, the* evil  result of running upstairs may not be  decidedly felt but where there is debility cf any of the processes this  strain cannot fail to tell in some form  or   other   with   injurious   effect      ,  SOME NEW YORK  FIRSTS.

It is  a good plan to have two sinks side by  side, one for washing and'one for rinsing the dishes. They should be well  flushed every two or three days with  boiling water and washing soda. This  will keep the pipes free from grease.  All racks for hanging towels should  be of nickel, Tben there is no danger  of rusting. Be sure there is plenty of  light in the pantry.  A competent maid will be particular  about keeping the butler's pantry  clean, wiping off tbe glass doors and  shelves and polishing all nickel fixtures. The drawers holding table  linen need uot be cleaned as often at  those In which the crumb'scraper, carving utensils, etc., are kept The silver drawer should be provided with a  large, neatly fitted pad of canton flannel. The dust may be frequently  shaken from this, and the silver should!  be laid in it in an orderly fashion-  knives in one part forks ln another  and tablespoons and teaspoons being  kept separate to save time in serving.  Tablecloths Bhould be folded as little  as possible and require.a large drawer. The napkins and dollies should)  occupy a separate drawer. All linen  not in constant use may be kept in the  linen closet or highboy.  Canton flannel bags for covering the-  broom to use in dusting hardwood  floors, ..chamois .and neatly hemmed  cfieeseciotib.t dusters should be kept la  another drawer. Shelves painted white-  are much better- than those covered  with oilcloth and are easily kept clean.  ���������New York Post  i  A FUNK OF BEEF.  The Possibilities For the Cook of This.

To persons who have not considered  the relationship of eyesight to general  health this letter will prove especially  interesting.  Mrs. A. R. Price, Nose Creek. Calgary, Alta., writes: "I write to tell  .you how highly we think of Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills, for they are unsurpassed for torpid llyer, constipation,  and kidney troubles. My husband  derived great benefit from Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills a couple of years  ���������ago when he was feeling depressed  and regularly out of sor4ts. His eyesight was failing and the lamplight  hurt his eyes so he could not read at  all and had made up his mind to see  an oculist.     ,  "I advised him to try Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills, thinking he was  suffering from torpid liver. He did  so and after using less than two boxes  his eyesight entirely returned and  he felt quite well again. > "We would  never  be  without   these pills in  the  house and I cannot speak too highly  of them."  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are  marvelously prompt and certain as a  cure for sluggish action of the liver.  While awakening the liver they also  regulate the bowels and Invigorate the  kidney action.  In this way the filtering and excretory systems are thoroughly cleansed  of all poisonous impurities and the  cause of pain, sickness and suffering  removed.  In every family there is need of Just  such a medicine as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to cure constipation,  backache, biliousness, indigestion and  prevent dangerous and fatal diseases  of the kidneys and bowels.

A newspaper ot  the far east publishes this bit of news:  "Seven ot the pirates who took par$ ln  tbe attack on the river steamer Sain-  am wefo beheaded ln Santon. The  prisoners were brought on to Ahe  ground in baskets, from which they  were immediately released. They were  then made to kneel In a row.

Elementary Schools in Great Britain  Reduce Number of Criminals.  Since  the  year   1870   millions -. of  money have been spent on elementary  schools in Great Britain.    Have tjie  great results which were then anticipated  been realized ?      It is very  pleasant to note that the highest hopes  of promoters of education thirty years  ago aro accomplished facts to-day.  In 1870 there were 30,000 people in  jail, nearly 6,000 more than there had  been ton years before.  Now, though  the population of the United Kingdom has increased by over fifty per  cent., we have to-day only some 20,-  000 people in prison.  That this good  effect is due to our elementary schools  is strongly suggested by the following table:  1870. Present day.  Population .. ....22,500,000   34,000.000  Number of persons  under sixteen in  prison,  reformatories, etc. .....     11,733 2,321  Total   per   100,000  of the population 52 7  Photographs, again, will point out  the uppfayement that Jnaa" been  brought about in Council School children's appearance.

CANADA AND THE NAVY.  "Would   Expect  Larger Share of Protection If Contributing To Its Cost.  The debate on the address recentlv  *ras enlivened by a statesmanlike and  tactful speech from Mr. Balfour dealing with Mr. Harold Cox's proposal  xnat the question of larger colonial  contributions to the cost of the navy  should be raised at the approaching  Colonial Conference.  The proposal was ill-advised.  If we  study the question from the colonial  -standpoint,   we  shall  see that there  ���������atns strong  political   reasons  against  *ny such a request being pressed by  ���������the Mother Country.   Canada, for example, needs first and foremost the  assistance of a powerful army to defend her southern frontier. That Eng-  tapd is_not attempting to give her.  d he    Monroe    doctrine   incidentally  protects her against aggression on the  |>art of any power    other than the  United States.   She  knows  that the  British Navy is now almost entirely  ���������concentrated in home waters, and if  ���������<8be contributed to its costs she could  *������carcely be expected to acquiesce in  Turn-condition of affairs.   As for Aus-  -*ra^������.]t^at country is much exposed  ���������r? foreign attack because its popula-  "tion is so exiguous, but even here a  ������*mtribution in cash  is undesirable.  ip_r better would it be for the Australians to form a navy of their own  "������r to train and equip a strong land  foroe,   which   would   be  of  infinitely  "greater  service  to  the  Empire  than  ������������������any tribute o! gold.  _ Mr. Balfour pointed   out   that  the  Daughter-States of the Empire incur  some 'danger "from the Imperial tie, if  'they_also derive real advantages from  tt. He 'doubted, and with reason, whe-  "���������'���������Sher the "British Fleet could be dimin-  ���������ssh6d  even   if   this   countrv   lost  its  "colonies.   Mr. Winston Churchill indicated ' the sound  lines  on which  the  Government will   act  in  the  Conference.   It will endeavor to secure the  ���������organization   of   colonial     forces   on  principles  similar  to  those   accepted  'in'England, and it will not put forward   foolish   claims   on  account   of  ^-services conferred on  the Empire by  i<U"e'fBrifcJsh Navv.  k MOTHER'S MESSAGE  i   m MOTHERS  *WHAT   ZAM-BUK   DID   FOR   HER  '1 -71  CHILD  '-If 'this statement is the means   of  Reading  some    mother    to    introduce  5_am-Buk to her home, I shall be   very  glad."    So  says  Mrs.  K. Watkins, of  26 Forgue Avenue, Montreal, and ccn-  tinues:     "My boy. Walter  (9),    while  attending    school,    contracted    some  sores.

RECORD,  FOUNDBR Ot TUB RECORD FOUNDRT.  Reproduced above, is a portrait of thw late  Mr. C. B. Record, the founder and original  head of the Record Foundry & 'Machine  Co., of Moncton, N.B.,  and Montreal,  P.Q.  Previous to Mr. Record going into the  manufacture of stoves, those used in  Canada were almost wholly of American  manufacture. The character of the work  turned out by the Record Foundry &  Machine Co.,'at once gave their stoves a  standing, and as a result a very large  business soon grew up, largely owing to  Mr. Record's untiring: Industry and perseverance against manv obstacles.  Although Mr. Record retired from active  business as far back as 1870, the solid  basis on which he had established the in*  dustry, has resulted in its growth from a  sturdy pioneer into one of the largest stove  manufacturing plants on the northern half  of the American continent. With two  large plants, one in Moncton and one in  Montreal, the Record Foundry & Machine  Co. are known from Halifax to Vancouver,  and their "Calorific" and "Admiral"  furnaces and " Penn Esther" ranges  recognized as tbe standard of Canadian  excellence.

SYMES' ADVICE TO CORRESPONDENTS  For Gray'Hair  SHADOW work has had such a  "run" for tiie last year that It  might be thought to have had  its day, did it not seem to be stronger  than ever.  This may hot be so as regards  blouses and whole dresses, but it is  certainly marked as far as fancy  work is concerned, also for lingerie  proper.  Shadow work ih rather small designs is a quick and showy way to  3>nbe!lish a corset cover or nightgown, especially now that the work is  Civen mo.-e character by the use of  ���������xtra stitches for shading on the  light side.  For fancy work it is made really  lovely by the use of tinting, softly  blended colors, fancy stitches In certain parts on the right side, centres  of French knots or solid embroidery  and studding in black, white or  opalescent beads.  Sofa pillows, bureau covers, moucfcolr  eases, pin cushion tops and glove  cases all are quickly and effectively  done in shadow work, often tho whole  set being made to match.  A very attractive set of this kind  has a butterfly design, threo large  ones on the pillow and a flight of  butterflies on smaller pieces. The material is a sheer lawn.  The pillow has three large butterflies-  one blue, one pink and the other yellow-  done in shadow stitch. Certain -spots  and markings on the wings* are outlined  on the outside in contrasting colors,  while the body and feelers are outlined  ih black. Glass beads in black, while  and opalescent tints to match the color  of the butterfly are used very freely on  tho right side with brilliant effect.  1 The flights of butterflies on the other  pieces are worked in the same delicate  tints, charmingly combined. The bend-  work is, if anything, more beautiful in  the smaller design.  ������ Nan -v cluny Tace edges the toilet ap-  I  polntments. This can likewise be u Jed  in a broader width for the pillow, but a  newer and daintier finish is to edge it  with the ruffling that now is to be had  especially for pillows. It is of while  lawn, about three inches wide, with two  half-inch woven stripes of lawn, either  one pink and the other green, or pink  and blue. These colored stripes ������**e veiy  pretty with the delicate opalescent tints  of the embroidery, and do not fade with  washing. Enough of this ruffling for a  pillow can be bought for 50 cents. The  designs also come ready stamped.       0  Adding a Pillow Ruffle  N PUTTING a ruffle on a sofa pillow be sure to allow plenty of  fulness at the corners. Baste lt  carefully with the right side of the  ruffle to the right side of the embroidered front; on top of this baste  the other half of the pillow, right  side in. Sew in a seam an eighth of  an inch deep around three sides, leaving a big enough space on the fourth  side to turn the cover and slip ir  the pillow.  When the cover Is turned and  pressed, the pillow should be put in,  care being taken to work it down  well to the corners. The real pressing, by the way, if an embroidered  top is used, should be done before the  back is basted on, leaving just a final  "rub off" for afterward. As embroidery must always be pressed on  the wrong side, and preferably on  some soft, thick substance, the iron  should be slipped inside the cover. Be  sure, first, that it is not hot enough  'o scorch.  After the pillow is in, the cover  may have the open edges neatly blind-  stitched together, or they can be  turned back, whipped to prevent fraying and fastened with smal' hooka  and    buttonholed    loops.  \T7HJj you kindly repeat the prescription  **    iter restc'iinK Kray hair to its natural  color?

Hair on Arms  Would you klndlv advise me how to remove the jtrowth ot hair from the "rms and  to reduce the hips? M. E. J.  There, are many ways to keep superfluous hair in subjection, but not  so many to do away with it perma-  i ppntlv.   If the growth on your arms  is not too thick or long, the simplest  way is to bleach it with peroxide of  hydrogen, which will render it almost  invisible. Should this not do for your  purpose, I shall be glad to suggest  something else.  The   following   exercise    will    help  greatly in reducing your hips:  To Reduce the Hips.  Hip circling can be done with good results  In the way of decreasing size if the principle of resistance is employed. Taking  standing position, hands on hips, rotate the  bits, bending the kne*s and keeping the-  chest and shoulders immovable. Contract  all the muscles used in this exercise and  resist.

I always read  your columns with Interest, as I get so-ne  valuable hints. MARIE  Addresses of dealers or commercial  rates are never given in my columns:  hut. to get the Vaucaire formula, I  should advise you to go to your own  druggist and explain the necessity of  preparing the prescription with the  genuine   South  American  saleca.  If  he cannot procure this for you, a3k  him to give you the name of a ������������������������*',i-  table establishment in one of the large-  cities.  I can assure you also that it is per- >  fc-eily harmless.  The orange-flower cream is merely st.  skin food, and, I think, would hardly  correct this difficulty. I wouid massage--  the shoulders and arms,' thus improving the circulation, and afterward uses-  the cream as a skin tonic.  As to the hollow in your neck: fron������  your description, I am inclined to  think that this is merely the small  depression that is quite natural to evea  the most perfectly formed neck.

Your query about moles is answered  under the letter of "Beatrvo" "  The Housemothers' Exchange  o;  Cultivating' a Sense of Fitness  A WOMAN must have an artistic  soul* to really dress well. Not  that every artist could pose as a  model of the perfectly gowned woman.  Too often her very sense of color and  admiration of classic lines lead to a  bizarre and, unconventional form of  dress that may be according to the  canons of the academic, but is hopelessly at odds with prevailing styles. For,  disclaim her power as one may, no  woman can afford to totally disregard  the mandates of Fashion���������provided that  she aspires to being well dressed,  Slavish observance of the prevailing  modes is bad, but it is a question if too  f-reat originality In clothes is not worse.  "' There is such a thing as excessive indi^~  vlduallty. Outre: dressing is always to  be avoided. Better, far better, be a  human fashion-plate than an eccentric  extremist who achieves startling novelty at the, expense of becomingness and  good taste.  The present season has a certain danger from the, very liberty of selection.  That liberty must never be permitted  to degenerate Into license; us one  woman, remarked, "you can wear anything you like this winter and still be  in the >tyle."   So you can, If you are  sure you like suitable things.  Right here does the truly artistic temperament get its Innings. The happy  possessor of it has a well-developed  sense of fitness. She realizes her physical shortcomings and appreciates what  manner of dress is or Is not becoming.  Wild extremes and undue originality  are barred out as rigidly as would be  loud and garish colors or cheap finery.  Tho artistic woman knows that  well-gowned means becomingly  ������owned. Never, were she a dumpy,  rotund, florid daughter of Eve, would  ���������he be. guilty of donning a huge picture hat overloaded with Immense  plumes, a costume just one degree  ���������more 'ujuffunt than her neighbor's  (often ivlth trimming horizontally  ���������rranfecd), of a vlvtd hue warranted  tbo accentuate every ugly purple Mnt  Breaking Engagements  in her complexion, and then complacently deem herself well dressed.  She realizes that not even lf labeled  conspicuously with that cabalistic  sentence, "Made in Paris," could rhe  ^ope to make the ordinary observer  deem her anything but a guy.  The artistic sense forbids plumes  floating at impossible angles on the  shoulder, over the ears, or obscuring  the nose���������one seen this season on a  woman old enough to know better  fell far below the hips���������or (that even  more hideour fashion of standing  rearingly erect like a drum major's  insignia. It also teaches that feathers  which  look  as  if  they  kad__bee.nl  caught in a cloudburst with never a  chance to dry off, form a trying frame  for the most youthful beauty.  The art-feeling gives its possessor  the intuitive sense that period costumes, in the heyday of popularity  though they be, should be eschjfcwed  by the woman who cannot afford the  best designers; doubly so, must her  clothes do duty a second season.  It teaches her that trying color  tones, accentuated slopli.g shoulders,  overindulgence in trin. ,s, eccentricities of cut and bizarre materials  snould be religiously avoided, These  things stamp the date of one's clothes  for the woman with a small allowance, and lay even her wealthy sister  open to criticism as lacking in the  innate refinement which ever forbids  consplcuoushess.  'the best modlsto can but point the  way; the final selection remains with  her patron. Dressmakers are too  often condemned when one's own  sense of fitness is at fault.  Remember, you who lack the art-  feeling that largely prevents mistakes,  that conventionality, rather than originality, pays best ln the sclfctlon of  clothes.

Recipe for Nut Bread.  I am about to commit a very reprehensible act, for which I humbly tue for pardon.

Men  are better cookss than women when  they give their minds to the profession.  They invent our household implements  and labor-saving machines.

I replied, upon  Hhe authority of a "professional," that  doe may buy an apparatus invented for  the purpose at any shep where dressmakers* supplies are kept. Out helper  and hinter tells of another way:  lack tne skirt on to the body; hook and  eye it; stand a yardstick up in front.of  the skirt as It Is held up; stick a pin or  make a chalk mark at the top of the yardstick, and move the latter around the waist,  keeping the stick exactly perpendicular, nnd  Placing the pinr at the top of the nick.  This done, lay the skirt flat on the table.  Wfsrln nt  t*>(������ 'rnnt.  ! lac!nir the ton **"   he  sticks at pins or chalk i.ne. Move gradually around the skirt a* beiore, an,, ou.ier-  pln or chalk a second row at bottom of the**  skirt, following th������ stick.  If1 you wish to hem the skirt, allow two  or three inches below the ��������� bottom row of  pins or marks. If you wish the ski it to  clear the door by on* Inch, put the lower  row of "markers" thirty-tlve Inches below  the upper row.  For a young girl's skirt that-clean-tn������  ground by ten Inches, chalk a line twtnty-  stx Inches from, the top or hip chalk-line.  This mav sound difficult, but lt is really  simple. If done right all you have to do !���������  to cut off the skirt at the lower line, or  turn your hem there. .

By some subtle law of  intuition I divined on tbe instant  that the woman vms not wasteful,  but dishonest, and that she expected to be arraigned upon that count.  Her -expression wns uneasy, shifty*  defiant. I could almost hear the  slatternly sister's whine and the  children's importunities for a share  in what was to be had for the asking from the aunt "who lived like  n lady." In q twinkling, too, I asked  myself if I would have had tho  moral cournpe, were I in her place,  to withhold bit and sup from my  own flesh and blood. The query softened heart and tone.  PLAN TO REDUCE BILLS  "Margaret," I began, gravely, but  gently, "I have been looking over  Inst week's bills, and, indeed, tho  bills of the last three months. I iuza  wonderir.g if wo cannot between us  hit upon a way of xnnking them  smaller,"  "It'c all been ate, fair and honest, in this house, mum," the girl  broke in here. ''May I never meet  little. In that case, what we put by  shall be yours. It is but fair that  I, who have the enjoyment of my  friends' society, should pay for it,  and you should have some extra pay  for your work,"  ������������������While all this was in saying, my  auditor stood like a statue of  amazed incredulity���������jaw drooping  and eyes distrustful. As plainly as  if her skull had been transparent  glass, I read the working of the  slow brain, Like most of her guild,  the first and foremost < question  upon taking in the import of any  proposed innovation upon established household usage was: "What  does she mean to make out of me,  and for herself, in all this? Won't  ,1 bo playing into her hand and  cheating myself if I give into her  notion?"  I had hoard tho adago, "A livin'  out gurrel must look out for herself in this wicked world," too often  not to guess correctly at the meaning of hesitation nnd silenoo. "  I purred on as placidly as a well-  fed houso tabby, to give her timo  in which to collect her scattored  ideas:  "Ono thing must bo understood  from the first: I must set a good  table always. Thero must b^ no.  scrimping and no meanness.   You  me Maker if vhut 1 say ain't true   have a talent for using left-overs  as I am standiti'here!"  I went  on  as  if  she  lad aot  spoken:  "You know that Mi*. 8terliner al-  woork straight there'd be no bonot  broke." She never suspected that  she would have lost her place and  the perquisites upon which her pensioners were fattening if she had  given a negative decision.  TEMPTATIONS   OVEROOKir  As I had apprehended, her temptation was to shorten supplies and  impoverish our-.daily fare.

Coke,  too, if you prefer it.  And so perfect is the combustion  of the Sunshine that it extracts  every unit of heat from the fuel.  What's left in the ash-pan is not  worth sifting.  Sunshine consumes less fuel, too.  Because its perfect system of  dampers prevent the escape of the  hot air up the chimney���������compels  it to come out through the registers.  You pay for heating the inside���������  not the outside���������of your house  when you buy the Sunshine^  If your local dealer does not  handle this most economical  furnace write direct to -us for  Free Booklet.
