Although there were  fourteen candidates, including  active practitioners and students  who had graduated from the  different universities of Canada  aud United States, and who  were desirous ot obtaining licences to practice in B.C, only four  were successful The failure of  so many is explained in the de-  aiie of lite bo.uu nol 10 issue licences to any but those throughly versed, not only iu theoretical  but also iu the practical application of the results of their col  lege Work  Messrs Grant and Co are ad-  vcrtisiug rough lumbcj for sate,  City Council.

The hotel licence is  as low as it should come, according to law, aud the wholesale is  as high as it can go. We have  nothing to do with it."  Aid.

(ContinnerU  ^JatWr'roso'KnQ.< asCting a torch of  pine, stuck lt In the ground; then he  opened his leathern pocketbook and  took out a number of cuttings, much  worn and apparently from old newspapers. He put on his glasses and began to examine the cuttings.  "The other day." snid 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 house. A  sound *woke her in 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  shades were up, an* there was dim  moonlight ln the room. A door with  panels o' thick glass led to the garden  walk. Beyond It were the dark forms  of men. One was peering In, his face  nt a panel, another kneeling at the  lock. Suddenly the door opened. The  lady fell fainting, with a loud cry,  Next day the kJdnaDed 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 he.  "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.  ���������"Thrmoth^Trboy!"Daffel"whispered.  The fire had burned low,  and  the  great shadow of the night lay dark upon tbem.   Trove got to bis feet and  came to the side of Darrel.  "Tell me, for God's sake, man, tell  me where Is my father!" said be.  "Hush, boy! Listen. Hear tbe wind  In the trees," said Darrel.  There was a breath of silence, broken  by tbe hoot of an owl and the stir pf  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 gat down together, and  presently Trove told blm of those silent  men who bad ever haunted the dark  and ghostly bouse of his Inheritance.  '"Tis thy mother's terror-an' tby  father's house���������I make no doubt." said  Darrel preseutly In a deep voice. "But,  boy, I cannot tell auy man where is  tby father; not even thee, nor bis name  or tbe least thing tending to point him  out until���������until 1 um released o* me  vow. Be content. If I can find the  man ere long thou shalt bave word o'  blm,"  Trove leaned against tbo breast of  Darrel, shaking with emotion. His tale  had come to an odd and fateful climax.  The old man stroked bis head tenderly.  "Ah, boy," said he, "I know tby  heart. ; I shall make haste���������I promise  thee I shall make linsto. But If tbe  good God should bring tby fnther to  Uieo an' thy head to shame an' sorrow  for his sin, forgive lilm. iu the uuiue o*  Christ, forglvo blm. Aye, boy, tiiou  must forgive all tbat trespass against  thoo," .,������������������*,.  "If I ever see'blm be ahull know 1  om not ungrateful," Bald tbe voung  man,  Trove nnd Darrel walked to tho clear*  log abovo Faraway. At a corner on  tbe high bills, whore northward thoy  could see smoke and spire of distant  village*, each took bis wny, one lead*  Ing to Hillsborough, tbe otber to Allen's,  "Goodby. An' when I return I hope  to benr tbo rost o' tby tale," said Dar-  rel as tbey parted.  "Only God Is wise enough to finish  It," aald tbo young mnn.  " Won, <ioa help us; 'tis a world to  ������t*f,'" iMlivl quoted, wuUug hi* bund.  "If tby heart oppress theu, steer for  the Blessed Isles."  CIUrTEIt XIX.  A BIO mnplo sheltered tho house  of tbe Widow Vaughn. After  tbo noon hour of a summer  day Its tide of sbndow began  flowing fathoms deep over house and  garden to tbe near field, where finally  It Joined tbo great flood of night. Tbe  maple wai Indeed a robin's Inn nt somo  crossing of tbe Invisible roads of the  ���������Ir. Its green dome towered high  above and fell to tbe gable cud of tbe  little bouse, Its deep and leafy thatch  bid every timber of Its frame nave tbe  rot������*i 'am'XVZ*  ItMtUflk was tue main  beam, eachniTnb a corner, Ti\tih tfef  of limbs ft floor, and branch rose above  branch like steps ln a stairway. Up  and down the high dome of the maple  were a thousand balconies overlooking  thc meadow.  From its highest tier of a summer  morning the notes of the bobolink  came rushing off bis lyre, and farther  down the golden robin sounded bis piccolo. But chiafly it was the home and  refuge of the familiar red breasted  robin. The inn had its ancient customs. Each young bird, leaving his  cradle, climbed his own stairway till  he came out upon a balcony and got a  first 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 witb music, for every lodger paid  his score with 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 put 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 If any green  youug bird were late and noisy going  up to his home he got a shaking and  probably lost ti few feathers from the  .nape-of-yhis-neckT-riaong-before���������days���������  break those hungry, half clad little peor  pie of the nests began to worry and  crowd their mothers. At first the old  birds tried.to quiet them with caressing movements nnd bad at last to hold  their places witb bill and claw. As  light came an old cock peered about  him, stretched his wings, climbed a  stairway and blew his trumpet on tho  outer wall. The robin's day had begun.  Mid-autumn, when its people shivered and found fault and talked of moving, the maple tried to please tbem  with new unci brighter ��������� colors���������gold,  with the warmth of summer in its  look; scarlet, suggesting love and the  June roses. Soon Jt stood bare and deserted. Theu what was there ln the  creak-and-whisper chorus of the old  tree for one listening In the night?  Belike it might be many things, according to the ear, but was It 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  thut small house under the treo knew  little of all that passed in tbe big  world. Trumpet blasts of fnme, 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 oven with thrilling and impressive  Incidents.

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 masses, 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?

Do you know what the mining business is and what enormous profits the Industry has produced  during the last four years?

Read the following facts and figures, and remember the possibilities of Cobalt  have only just begun to develop,  Aooordfng to a reoent tabulation by the "Mining World/' 166 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 (1106,197,756.00) or a total of five hundred and seventy-four million  six hundred and ninety-two thousand nine hundred and seventy-one dollars ($574,692,971.00) since their  Incorporation. ThU does not Include the profit earned by thousands of corporations and Individuals  owning mining properties who do not make publlo reports, Who reoelve those dividends? Certainly  not those that passed up the opportunity.  In 1871, Calumet and Hecla stock was peddled around at 50 cents on the dollar and was even  traded for supplies; these same trhnros are now selling at $1,000.00 each, with plenty of eager buyers,  and that slnco 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 ono, but it Is only ONE, There are others, and  many of thom 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 In profits In 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 Is a substantial argument In favor of mining Investment's.

The Tageblatt states that ,the  new Gerjman cruiser F, to be laid  down this year, J will displace 19,200  tens and will have turbine engines ol  .40,000 to 50,000 h.p  It is understood 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. A.

Will Be Published Soon, After Edit  ing By King Edward.  A unique work in many ways wilj  be the volumes of Queen Victoria's  letters which A. C. Benson and Viscount Esher have been editing foi  the last-four or five years.  It is unique firstly because of the  nature of the book���������it will consist  chiefly of letters, with an introductory  preface to each group; outlining the  history of the period���������and, secondly,  because it is the first time that a  reigning monarch has sanctioned tha  publication of the correspondence ol  his predecessor; and, thirdly, because  King Edward VII has supervised tha  proofs.  So well have the editors done their  work that King Edward has made  very few corrections in the proofs.  Most of them are just pencil alterations, where his Majesty thought it  necessary to delete or to add a word.  The correspondence will be issued  in three volumes at three guineas net, '<  magnificently   illustrated   with   por- i  traits of statesmen and personalities'  of the times, chiefly supplied by the  King himself. j  It is to be understood that no intimate-personal letters will be    in-'  eluded, but many will be found thai  passed between Queen Victoria" and  the Prince Consort, as well as Queen'  Victoria's correspondence on ,the his-'  torical and political events of    he*  long reign.  The book is to be published in Oo-  Jtober next, and.it may be safely assumed that a work of such worldwide  interest will be translated into every  European. Language,    ..  CANADIAN INVENTOR'S  EXPERIENCE  INTERESTING INCIDENT BY  A FAMOUS RATENTEE  Mr. Wm. Wilson, of Craigie Villa,  London (Ont.), the , inventor of the  Wilson Fruit Oase, now adopted by  the Canadian Government, tells an  interesting experience which shows  the healing and antiseptic value of  Zam-Buk, the herbal balm. He says:  "1 had two poisoned wounds on my  le*, 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__h.ealed_the__wounds  IX   IS   PURE!

How Sentence of Death Was Carried  Out on 8treets 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 his 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 tho execution there  appeared In the streets a band of  sweepers armed with leafy twigs, followed by a squad of the dty Arab  police with fixed bayonets. Then camo  the oriminal, dressed in new white  garments, with a new halter around  his neok and now ropes attached to  his arms, Tho ends of these ropes  \vero held by policemen. The ordinary thing is for tho oondomned man  to walk, but in'thls cam he was so  overcome that he had to be convoyed  in a jutkn.  On arriving at the fatal spot the  murdertr was made to alight and  kneel down, while the policomon  handed over charge of the cords to  the oxooutloner's attendants, ono of  whom, seizing tho ond of tho halter,  atood in front of the folon, while others held tho cords pinioning the arms  behind. Tho oxecutlonor, brandishing  a broad, heavy sword, keen as' a  raeor, in a suggestive fashion, and  pranoing up towards hii victim asked three times In n loud voice: "Who  authorises the execution?" Tho ohief  of the city polico on duty thrice replied: "Tho Amln."  Thon an attendant armed with a  long needle pricked the condemned  man in the baok, causing him to utart  forward. At the same instant those  holding the cords inia themselves  buck in {*mH,A.lij Ulrcclloua as iti a  tug-of-war contest, with the result  that the wretch's neck waa stretched*,  and, following the reply of the ohief  of police, the executioner's blade de-  aeertrlod   fnlr 3n/J  *-,,������   0������   ������jw   ^^  severing the head completely,  in a atreet Car,  Btodgett-You boo that homely woman bangUm to that strap* Foster-  How do yoa know ibe ii bomefyT Too  oral seo ber fac*.

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 fail, whv thev have  systemic or pelvic .' catarrh. Indeed,  ithey are especially liable to these ailments. No wonder? thev require the  sprotection of Peruna. It is their shield  sana safeguard.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA  Housemothers in Weekly Conference With Marion Harland  Beets and Dahlias.  .1 notice a request for directions for canning beets without vinegar. I have put them  up successfully for several years in the  following manner:  Cook as usual, selecting as young and  tender beets as possible. When tender, rub  the skins off and put in cans, cutting only  as much aa is necessary to get the beets  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 in my turn.  My dahlias grow line and large, and bud  freely, but the buds drop off, so that I have  not had a single blossom. I can discover  no vermin.   What can I do for them?  Mrs. G.  (SInclairvllle, N. Y.).  My English 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 in the shade,  but will not flower freely. Perhaps  some horticulturist may suggest something else?  Yinegar 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 think of living  In a country that produces neither apples nor grapes! You have our warmest sympathy under the deprivation. I  am told that cactus flgs, crushed, turn  to vinegar if left in the sun, You can  surely get these.  Will some of our excellent soapmakers  answer the second request?  A Remedy for Fleas.  I cannot but appreciate the benefits that I  have received from your column, although I  have never asked anything through it However, I desire to ask 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 .1 do not think many of  your readers know how to keep salt dry ln  the salt cellar.   If a little cornstarch were  ��������� used   they   would   find   that   that   trouble  would be remedied.  * A BUST 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 in  and around the flooring.  I can certify to the efficiency of the  cornstarch in preventing salt from caking In damp weather.  Rust Stains.  Kindly tell me through your valuable columns how to take rust stains out of a  child's white dress.  Mrs E. H. O'B.  Soak all night in sour butterriiilk;  next day wash in pure water, dry and  wet the spots with lemon juice and lay  ln 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 be quickly made? All I have require  so much time,  Some months 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 book such a recipe, and  determined to try this means of reaching  **B   B "  As this Is the season when the good housewife, ant-like, ls preparing for winter, I  will send my recipe for keeping eggs. Make  a solution of one quart of salt and one  quart of lime (measured after lt is thoroughly slaked), two gallons of hot water.  Mix In a large vessel and set to cool; drain  off che solution and put Into an earthenware jar. Examine each egg carefully, for  lf one Is cracked or impure it will ruin aU.  Test each egg by placing it ln a vessel of  fresh water. If it remains on the bottom  of the vessel, you put tt In the solution, if  It floats at all. It is fit for immediate use  alone. When the eggs reach within a few  inches oi the top 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 eggs for use.   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. SIcC.  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 may expedite the process  by soaking the chopped meat in cold  water for an hour before setting it  over Are, Can any wiser housemother  help our fellow-member?  The recipe for eggless cake will be  found in another column,  "Pretty Way" of Hemming.  The other day a neighbor came In with  a dozen table napkins, asking me to hem  them my "pretty way." as she said,  While doing so. lt occurred to me that it  might act as a suggestion to some of your  many constituents, who need to eke out a  slender income, if I spoke of it. It seems  to "me many who buy a good quality of  table linen would be willing to pay���������say  75 cents a dozen for having napkins hemmed, or JI for the largest size. They  are much daintier hemmed bv hand, but  many have no time to spare for It. Perhaps  the linen deoartments of the stores 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 mvself,  but am not strong enough. In Scotland we  used to trample them with our feet.  I enjoy your column very much. It seems  to be doing a helpful work ln this sin-sick  world. While It seems bright to me, your  correspondence reveals much sadness everywhere, and one ot tbe things which seems  so sad is the need of many middle-aged  women to earn a livelihood.   Some of them  cannot leave home.    Hence,  the res son of  my sending along this  suggestionv  J. S. S.  Bvery good housekeeper Who :;as au  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  tinhemmed tableDlinen, sheets, etc.   In  purchasing these, lf 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, lf she chance to know  of some private seamstress who will be  glad  of  the  work.    For  years  T   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 in every community,  however small, those to whom erhplo>-  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."

Carter  Copyright, 1905, by A. S. Barnes & Co.  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 be left uncovered for any great length of time,  and when in use ought to have slipcovers of strong muslin that can be removed and washed periodically. When  they are moved about, their 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 it  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._    _ *;  -. ������������������������������������������������������  ���������'   .."  .-  ���������-Mattressesrihay"be kept like new for  years if they are systematically turned  daily���������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 Boon 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, lf 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 oe 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-caretaklng.  Twice a year, in line weather, mattresses should have a good sunning, in  the open air, hanging over lines; while  they are outside is a fitting time to have  them well thrashed with a bamboo rug  whipper. 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 mattress has been out In extremely  cold weather it should be placed in a  warm room  long enough  to take  the  chill off before any one sleeps on it, or  else It 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 Is 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 sonny roof,  the mattresses can lie but 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. Pil-  ^0WB^qlsMES_a.nd_!evei3tthingJilled~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 in 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 tf not perfectly clean.  washing.
