The extraordinary size of many of the new hats and the profuse amount
it t. limning on them would aeem to be the limit of extravagance In these
(wo directions. Yet we need not look further back than the source and in
epilation of our present modes, to find ourselves far behind the extremes of
thuKt? bj'Koiie days. Rome of the hats worn by Marie Antoinette were made
f white straw braids, "the brims of which were three and a half feet across,
aid the crowns Seven and a half to nine inches high." These measurements
certainly look imH)sslble and our present day hats dwindle Into commonplace
Insignificance by comparison. Our author tells us these hats "were profusely
trimmed with field flowers, such as marguerites, bluets, (Hippies and grasses,
ami Mulshed with large bows und ties of many colored plaid ribbons, nine
'Nell Uwynne, the actress, who amused Charles II. of Knpland, wore hats
t ali to measure four feet across wiili tttiaight brims, small crowns and loaded
vjth larf.',e-f,lzed cat rich plumes." ,
Kven In the matter of plumes we have not distanced the merry Nell.
Mury Stuart, QMn of Scotland, the romantic beauty whose character
liss pi-cven such a boon to the disputatious historians, bequeathed to posterity
a bonnet form that in unexcelled In grace to this day. The Marie Stuart bon-n-t
is too familiar to need description. It is a stately and beautiful headdress
which time will leave unchanged.
Home Remedies for Minor
Ills and Afflictions
There arc numerous minor ills
which appear so Insignificant as to
render the calllns of a physician un
necessary, and yet these ills, neglect
ed, may in the course of time spread
to serious proportions.
If simple home treatment does not

more skilled knowledge must be con
Fur instance, tartar may suddenly
be discovered in some crevice of the
teeth, it will appear sometimes in
spite of faltliful brushing. Should It
have collected in any quantity there
must be a general housecleanlng at
first Take an orange stick and dip the
end not too sharp In a strong solu
tion of peroxide of hydrogen (it is
known by several names dloxygen,
hydrogen peroxide, hydrogen dioxide,
etc.). Then dip the wet point In finely
powdered pumice stone and scrub the
parts til) perfectly white. Each morn
ing brut.h the teeth with a wash com
posed of one part dloxygen and four
Moi'.tb sores, ulcers, gum bolls, etc.,
create much annoyance at times. Use
freely the wash above mentioned, but
if a quick cure is rteidred for an ulcer,
drop into the center of it a pinch of
powdered alum. It will be bitter and
disagreeable for a few minutes, but
the ulcer will disappear almost Imme
diately. A pinch of borax In a glass of
water, used as a wash, is also effective
and harmless. In the meantime, look
well to the condition of the stomach,
where generally lies the source of the
Speaking of the stomach. Its disor
ders very often are evidenced by a
fetid breath. Should this be from im
purities or disturbing gases, charcoal
will absorb them very effectually.
Take It In tablet form frequently dur
ing the day.
It Is on the chilly days of winter
that the "frog" makes known his un
welcome presence In one's throat. It
Is often, too. that a husky voice is
most untimely, as, for Instance, when
there is singing or reading or much
speaking to be done. U'nion juice Is
used by some to clear the voice, but
its effects are only temporary, and it
Is a rather severe treatment for the
delicate membranes of the throat. The
white of.an egg beaten to a stiff froth
is an old fashioned but an excellent
remedy to relieve such congestions,
and if so desired lenmn Juice may be
added to It. I'sually a cup of hot black
coffee is effective. Another remedy Is
a tablespoonful of glycerine In two
tablenpoonfuls of whisky, and, still an
other, Inhaling the steam from a weak
f olutionf ammonia and boiling water.
For strained or Inflamed eyes make
a solution of boric acid and warm wa
ter, or of hydrogen peroxide and warm
water, and bathe the eyes by the use
' of an eye-cup. A medicine dropper Is
good for this purpose, though rnore
tedious to handle. -

Flowered Cretonnes Good
For Fancy Work
"I never did any fancy work till
these lovely flowered cretonnes came
In," said one member of the sewing
bee, as she took another stitch in the
queer-looking bag she was making.
"I have to sew on something that gets
"That is Just what I'm looking for,"
broke in the associate member, wh
was milling the latest novel to the
others while they wwked.
"Put that book down." commanded
the active member, "and I'll show you
how to make a pair of cretonne bed
slippers this very minute." The girl
of the cretonne bag volunteered to !
lend a yard of material that she
couldn't use that alternoon, and . the
hostess brought forth a common old
knitted s'.lpper as a pattern. Then the
active member cut out a pair of
cretonne tops by the old slipper and
told the associate member to seam
them up the back. A lining of plain
cotton cloth was cut the same size,
the edges turned in and stitched on
the sewing machine, and the slippers
were ready to be overhunded to a pair
of cork soles.
"Now get some coarse linen lace
next time you go down town." com
manded the active member, "and sew
it round the tops."
It was done so quickly that every
girl there resolved to go Into cretonne
fancy work immediately. At the next
meeting one was found making flow
ered bags for soiled handkerchiefs. A
yard of the material was gathered at
each end on to an embroidery ring
wound with ribbon to match. W"heu
the rings were held together the cre
tonne formed a delightfully capacious
bag. Another was making small table
covers, with centers of the cretonne
and a broad border of plain sateen to
match the color of the flowers. A
third was making a set of over
draperies for her sister's chamber win
dows, to be hung straight down over
the old muslin curtains. Still another
had Invented a set of bureau scarfs,
with an edge of coarse Cluny lace.
"And the beauty of It all Is that
you can do most of it on the machine,"
said the associate member, as she
basted busily at a cretonne pillow
Fashion for Children.
For a small child about four years
of age there is a charmingly simple
plaited frock of the fine navy blue
serge, witti a smart patent leather
belt in black or red, and ornamental
stltchings on the collar and cuffs. An
other pretty plaited frock which would
fit a glrr about ten years of 'age is
made of green and blue tweed piped
with green velvet, and this is worn
with a loose belt of tan-colored cloth
that looks like suede kid. The dainty
vest ia of creamy guipure and Valen
ciennes lace Insertions arranged alter
nately in stripes, and there is a little
cravat bow of green velvet at the
throat. For early autumn wear out
of doors there is a 1 cat costume of
navy blue sergn with a plaited skirt
and a Norfolk coat.
. Satin Blouses.
Satin blouses In the darker shades
are charming mnde up with heavy
white lace chemisettes and decorated
with Jeweled, gold or silver buckles;
and as these separate waists are often
worn with the cloth visiting costume
their tint matches the sat It) hat rathe
than that of the gown.
