Women are generally careful about
the state of their health, and they are
apt to make good use .of remedies
known as disease preventive s. Germ
icides and antiseptics are incltfded in
this class, but the greatest care should
be exercised In using any which con
tain poisons, unless prescribed by a
physician. - '-. , l -y
By-reason of its absolute safety and
its beneficial results, physicians have
strongly recommended Tyree's Anti

f great weight off the shoulders and
i mfnds of the little tots.
A numlx-r of young boys not yet in
j their teen, who are receiving in
atruction outside of school, decided
that they wanted to remember their
instructor at Christmas time. Qne
day last week they visited a jeweled
in a body and selected al scarf pin,
and' taking up a collection among
themselves, made thearchase. Now
that pin is being passed around
itrong. the mothers of the little
chaps, and so far not one word of dia
approval has been, tittered for the de
fign was simple,." and Its symbol -friendship
seems to have pleased the
mothers as well as it appealed to
the boys. ' j;
These little fellows did vnot make
the purchase .without thought,; but
discussed the matter fully, and when
they - had made their. decision, hesi
tated no longer. And 'they will prob
ably enjoy the giving of that present
more than .any which their mothers
have purchased without their knowl
edge and co-operation. ; ; f ,
One of the mistakes often made "by
mothers Is the manner in which they
ignore their children when It is time
to buy Christmas present. Of course,
it would be very nard for a woman
to take he;- children with her every
time she, visited the stores, but - she
could set aside one day tor the selec
tion of the children's gifts. V. On this
excursion the little ones should , be
allowertto voice their own taste, and
whenever, possible they should be al-!
lowed to make some , of the pur-'
chases. A .child is ! never : happier
pointing who 'found itposilbla to be
thore. . . v . - '
- On display in the halL were thirty
five of hia most recent works o! art,
which were much admired by the
. critics. -The v largest of these .is a
beautiful view ot Hanalel Valley,
looking across, the winding river and
tree dotted bottom lands toward, the
three picturesque mountain peaks of
liil.imanu, N'omolokama, : and Mama
hvhoa, standing like a trio of sentinals
In the background. . , , , . .'
Other pictures which attracted upec
'al ; attention Tere..the iews of the
towering peak back oX- Haena, from
iifch the hardy Hawaiian mountain
eers occasionally throw, great blazing
firebrands, on Important 'days which
toey wish to celebrate. One of these
is a. morning view of the peak, show
Jn? with vivid clearness the cliffs and
c:ves and verdure of - the -yast ciono
Lth. Others show the afternoon aspect
of "the pealc, with its cliffs shrouded In
the mellow golden rays of the descend
ing sun.; ;
Nearly every one of the paintings on ,
exhibition bad one or., more features )
which marked its superiority over the ,
others," and It was veTy difficult for j
thnse who were enjoying them to pick 1
out any which ould be said to o tt-j
class all the others. Though it was .
pretty generally admitted that the j
large View of Hanaiei Valley. looWnT,
across from tho north-eait hillside, to-1
ward the mountains, had a depth and,
charm of line and coloring which en-j
tilled it. to 'the first place if;;any of
thrjjj could :be given that distinction. - j

byying somthir.s by himself.
The result of a day's visit to the
fhops with two or three small child
ren may hot be very restfiu to the
mother, but the cae of her children
is a part of a ciorhcr's life work, and
thi3 .phase of H can not Le over
looked or slighted. .
When the small boy of the family
wishes to remember fvorne cf his
school mates, cue of the nteest gifts
he can get is a pencil box entirely
fitted out.; This is no sma:: niaiier,
for thei e are a great many litt le
things that belong in the box of the
school boy. of today. There are not
only pencils but penholders and pen
points, erasers, and pencil sharpen
ers, and a dozen or more other thing.
This same gift may be made by a
little girl, unless she wishes .to have
her gift a little more personal,: Then
there Is nothing more acceptable ir.aa
a dainty hair ribbon." There is hard
ly anything that delights a small girl
more than a prettyassortment of hair
ribbons, 1 ' . ; v - .
Another thing vtbat often troubles
the niinds of the small tots Is the re
membering of -mother and fathers Of
course, laother can tell "them what' to
give father but "It is not always for
lather to suggest to them something
that mother would like, that is also
wlhin the limits of the Christmas al:
lowance. When it corce.v to this, the
J-est person to consult, is a' big ; sis
