of Anmrlrn now are In -!ini) In vari
ous parts of the country. 1 he en
cainptneuts vary from a troop of twenty-four
to a thousand boys. '1 ho udd
ers of the Hoy Scouts of America np-
preclnte the danger of large encamp
ments and for that reason announced
some months ago that they would
have no national encampment They
pointed out that It Is much wiser for
the boys to get their first experience
in camping in small groups. They
also have sent out bulletins to the
scout masters of the extreme neces
sity of using all sanitary precautions
in camping and warning the scout
masters not thoroughly versed In
methods of having eanips sanitary
against taking the boys into camps of
more than two or three days. The
Illustration shows a couple of New
Tork boy scouts enjoying a feast of
watermelon beside their tent.
Procure a gold ring, the more mas
sive the better, and attach It to a sills
thread about a dozen Inches long.
Fasten the other end of the thread
around the nail Joint of the forefinger
of the right hand. Rest your elbow
on the table to steady your hand and
bold the thread in such a position as
to allow the ring to hang about halt
an Inch above the surface of the t:i
ble. Hold your Unger out straight and
throw back your thumb as far as pos
slble. So long as there is notlilnj; on
the table the ring will remain station
Place some silver coin Immediately
below it, when the ring will begin to
oscillate back and forth, to and from
you. If you bring your thumb in con
tact with your forefinger the owl I la
Hons will become transverse to their
former swing. This may also be ef
fected by allowing some one to tills
hold of your disengaged hand. These
effects are produced by the unimsii
magnetic currents given forth by the
hands of the experimenters.

Sleeve of the Moment.
There can be no question that sim
plicity will not be the distinguishing
feature of the sleeve of the fall. A
few weeks ago nearly all bodices and
blouses were made with the Asiatic
sleeve I. e., cut In ono piece with that
garment and minus seams. In the new
modes the sleeves are put in separately
with just a little fullness, and nearly
ail sleeves have a bit of black velvet
trimming applied In the bandings, pip
ings, pancllngs or buttons. Perhaps
the smartest and newest sleeve Is the
Breton, which wfll be much exploited.
It reaches below the elbow, Is straight
and wide and is often made of differ-1'
ent material from the bodice. In even
ing gowns this feature is effectively
carried out In beaded and jetted nets,

The Hay Pillow.
"I wish mothers would, first of all,
throw away those feather pillows and
wool mattresses which their children
sleep on and substitute bolsters and
beds of bay. It would cost only about
10 cents, and think of the wonderful
relief," remnrked a well knows physi
cian, "The profuse perspiration of a
child at night would be done away
with. Children should not be roasted
night after night as they are. The
hay Is cool and sweet smelling, and
the child couldn't do anything but

him great discomfort"

whether tbey are buttoned or laced,
must not be too tightly fastened or the

low the baby to go barefoot as much
of the time as possible about the home.
This allows the foot to grow naturally.
Children's Names. '
Some parents seem unable to resist
the temptation to make a joke with
the Christian names of their children.
A certain register testifies to the ex
istence of a Mineral Waters, a Frosty
Winter and an Alfred Days Weeks.
There Is something to be said In favor
of naming children in the order of
their arrival Primus, Secundus, etc.
but it is unfortunate for a well known
Canadian named Cumber that It
should hove fallen to bis lot to be
Qulntus, for bis name Is always ap
pearing In the papers as Q. Cumber.
Encouraging' His Appetite.
"When I have any difficulty In get
ting my boy of three and a half years
to eat bis food at the table we start a
little game." said a clever mother re
cently. "We name each bite for a
member of the family or for a little
playmate or some place be has been,
and it is surprising what an amount be
will eat and enjoy."
For children's rooms and night nurs
eries pale pink and white Is a delight
ful combination, and while striving to
have everything as dainty as possible
one must avoid unnecessary fiuffiness,
remembering that all draperies, etc.,
will be paying frequent visits to the
