'Why He Applauded.
A characteristic anecdote Is told of

; .''ritable genus of composersj He had
'. jrbeen prevailed upon to be present at
'the first representation of the work of
7 a confrere, and during the tirst acts,
which' were juiuch applauded by the
public, he had kept a gloomy silence.
J The third act was less favorably re
celved. and -a certain passage espectal-
' ly seemed to cast a cold blanket over
the, spectators, when the old maestro,
to the astonishment of bis friends, was
f keen to applaud heartily.
t "Do you reHily like that duo?" asked
one of fliom. "I should have thought
it was one of the poorest a'n coldest
' In the whole opera."

' Stage Repartee. '
Paris actors are very fond fit saying
things i to one another on the stage
which will confuse them und make an
answer very awkward. A few days
ago, during the progress of a costume
filav. una of the actors who was wear
ing a sword knocked the thunder
plates dowu in the wings. , ,
, Thunder .plates are sheets of. tin
which are shaken to produce thunder,
and the noise of the fall of a couple of
them can be Imagined. The king, who
was upon the stage, turned to one of
the pages and haughtily asked, "wnat

TWO NEW ARTISTIC PATTERNS i .:,
TOR CUSHION AND CENTERPIECE
According to Scripture,
v A tailor of very strict principles was
'' In the h'ablt of excusing the faults of
' hi Assistants only if they could Jus
: tlfy themselves by Scripture. One day
a woman entered his shop and asked
to aee some material, but refused to
. buy It because It was too cheap., After
showing her some other goods toe as

' MORNING GLORY CENTERPIECE.
IF yon are tired of the ordinary, conventional embroidery pattern and desire
something novel for your cushion cover and table centerpiece, why not
. try the St. Malo design shown in the upper part of the accompanying
picture or me mommg giory suown neiow ur i very iiuie wora is neeaea
to bring to completion the morning glory centerpiece. The lines may be had
with the design stenciled In natural colors, so that all the needlewoman has to
do is to outline them and fill in th? veins of the leaves,' doing the work with
care and ' neatness, of course. , The flowers are bordered In . outline stitch in
several shades of purple and pink. The leaves are dark green, and Inside the
cupa of the flowers there are a few stitches of yellow and green silk.
The St Malo design is carried out on a groundwork of gray linen. The
colors of the pattern are pinks, greens and browns of various shades. Tans,
browns and greens are another good color" scheme, or for drawing rooms
mora delicate tints 'may be employed. The effect Is artistic in any case if
the work is carefully and well done. FRANCES - WARD.
Parsley Cure For the Complexion.
The latest remedy for a thick or
spotty complexion Is to wash It with
parsley water. It Is done In this way:
You must take half a pint of rainwater
and soak In it a large bunch of pars
ley, letting It remain In the water all
night In the morning when you dress
you must rub the face well with a dry
cloth, then dip your sponge in the.l
parsley water and pass the damp
spange over your face, leaving It on
without drying It. You, must do this
three times dally, and you will be sur
prised to see the spots, or roughness
Sooiety Becoming "Wild and Woolly."
The wild west show Is the latest fad
among society people. Buckskins and
fringes are no end becoming to stun
ning girls and matrons, and, thanks to
the fad. for out of door exercise, there
are' plenty of these nowadays. The
American girl rides, with a. freedom
which rivals the frontier man's, 'and

The Latest Luck Bringer.
The latest luck' bringer in Paris is
the porte bonheur bracelet, says a New
York fashion writer. It Is a rigid cir
cle of gold, not very wide, but quite
round, with a hidden clasp and-no or
namentation, which gleams on r the
wrist as a wedding ring on the finger.
It Is moat potent when worn on the
left wrist and loses its charm entirely
when adorned.. .
A recipe for a Japanese salad calls
for a cupful of rice boiled so that the
grains are neither 'too dry nor too
sticky and cooled. This Is put in a
bowl and mixed with a teaspoonful of
salt Over it is sprinkled a quarter
of a pound of almonds blanched, sliced
and dried. Above the almonds are
placed sliced mushrooms, and over all
is poured a, dressing composed of six
tablespbonfuls of olive oil, two of lem

fP there is one place more than another at which the baby's rattle has the
same significance and power as the king's scepter It Is at the annual baby
I shows and parades that are held In some summer and fall resorts. Not
alone In this country,' but in England also, are baby shows and parades
held. (It may be that the babies ot other countries are asked to put their
cute selves on exhibition, but patient research fails to disclose any record of
such events.) The accompanying picture was taken at Folkestone, Bngland
the great summer resort of our English cousins. Hundreds of pretty young'
stars were brought out to be admired and to compete for the cups and other
prizes that were offered. The Folkestone baby festival is not so big an affair
' a our owu Asbury Park baby parade and carnival, but it is quite aa suopeMful

removes scale more thoroughly, with greater ea.ae, in hss time, at

it up and return it at our expense. ' '...
