So I put on a thick and heavy-patterned

Its dense folds. I felt better then,
At the reception I met a charming man.
I had Just arrived and had not yet re

together for a long time.
One thing I know and It Is this: 1 have

he said to mo. A sudden, mad Impulse
seized me then. It was a woman's pro
tective Instinct, I can analyze It now. I
knew that when I raised my veil the
deference and flattering attentions on his
part would cease, fade, melt before the
sudden apparition of my ugliness. Had
I not seen that happen a hundred times
before! So 1 decided not to raise my

The Man looked surprised,

I can far exceed other women. My
views of life are sincere and to the aver

of Intellect and conversation, I can sur
pass most women. The one soul-killing
.handicap is my poor face!
After an hour or so, the Mnn to me

into his voice. "You Interest mo most

I talked and talked at that reception,
and I opened out some of my Inmost,

What Other Women Do
A mother cannot b" a school teacher In
New York, since the Court of Appeals has
upheld the Board of Education In dis
missing Mrs. Bridget C. Peixotto because
she absented herself from duty as a
teacher to give birth to a child.

Over 1000 fanlllies In Los Angeles look
to Miss Alta M. Allison for their weekly
allowance money, since she has charge
of the money received from reerennt hus
bands who have been ordered bv the
Courts to pay their wives a certain
amount of money each week.
Mrs. I.ucy Overfleld, a widow, of
Brooklyn, has been reappointed to h-r
Wfi a year position as head of the bond
department of the Internal revenue oftlce
'in that city. She has been In tho same
position for the last S3 years, having been
appointed first during the fievcland Ad
ministration. On Growing Mushrooms
' Mushroom growing may be looked at
"In two ways, as a pleasant fad or as a '
profitable occupation. Even as a pas-
,tlme. with a philosophical dlsregarel of j
the results, it Is full of interest, with the '
.possibility of its becoming a hobby on i
.which to ride away from the humdrum .
of dally routine. j
Mushrooms can b grown In cellars,
greenhouses, sheds and In beds prepared
'. out of doors. There Is no very great ex- i
pense attached to making a bed In any j
one of these places, but as each one must
,' be prepared In a different manner. It Is .
wise to secure one of the little pamphlets
on mushroom growing, given away by
any of the seed houses, before making
SELECTION OF THE SPAWN.
Then comes the selection of the spawn.
There are many varieties. English and '
American, some of the latter originating ,
in this State. There are slight differences i
In the size and possibly, to the epicure, j
in the flavor. But whatever selection Is
made, it should be noted whether the '
spawn is intended for October planting
or for April. Disaster would surely re-
' suit In a mistake here.
The people who like mushrooms like
them very much, indeed, and to have
one's own mushroom bed Is a luxury
worth a little trouble. It is worth a trial
certainly. There are many people In the
' world who find that time hangs heavy
on their hands to whom the details of
preparing the bed. spawning it and water

"You will not tell him how I really

both his heart and my own!"

kindly, acquiescent way. "No, my dear,

Then we kissed e.ith other, she. and I

Milady's Toilet Table
The thin girl Is coming Into her own
these days, but there Is such a thing as
being too thin. Tho words of Joseph
Cawthorne. "I like 'em plump," set the
standard. This plumpness can be ob
tained by careful effort.
Tho first step towards this Is to avoid
nerves, fretting and Irritability.

cocoa or chocolate. Take mashed po

masticate each morsel thoroughly.

Exercise must be regular and moderate.
Horseback riding, tennis and boating are
good. Vocal exercises enlarge the chest.
Small doses of cod liver oil should be
taken several times a day.
With stttct application of these rules

or four weeks.
The Proper Care of the Teeth
Do you know how to take the proper
care of your teeth? There are so many
interpretations of "proper care" that It
is hard to tell. Any actual disease of the
teeth must, of course, be treated by the
dentist, but much can be done to pre
ventor at least delay decay.
The worst foe to their preservation Is
very hot food or drinks and strong acids.
So be careful of your tooth and mouth
wash. These should be either astringent,
antiseptic, alkaline or neutral.
Food particles accumulate around the
teeth and decompose, forming an acid.
This Is very Injurious, causing the de.
posit of tartar, and finally the receding
gums and loosening of the teeth. A good
alkaline wash prevents this catastrophe.
The benefit derived from astringent and
antiseptic washes consists in hardening
the gums. The neutral powders, such as
Renovating Your Wardrobe
Sometimes a perfectly good frock will
shrink In the washing, and In letting out
the hem you will find the edges much
worn. A good Idea Is to cut the hem off
and put In a row of Insertion or wash
braid Then add the hem and face It up
as far as the insertion. If you find your
yngene blouse worn out around the neck,
cut the worn parts away, face with sheer
white muslin and buttonhole around the
edges In Dutch neck effect. Finish the
edges of the sleeves In the same way, and
the blouse will last a long time and take
on quite a new look. If your slip muslin
or organdie dress has become flimsy, but
not soiled, wring out a piece of cheese
cloth in cold water, starch, lay the dress
In the cloth and roll up together. After
standing awhile the starch will draw
through the dress ; then press out on the
wrong side. ThU method will give it
about the same stiffness aa new material.

One of the New Capes,
The Cape Is Having lis Revenge in Leading the Cloak as
an Evening Wrap And With a Little Skill
One Can Make One at Home.
Foi a time the cape was almost com
pletely routed by the clonk for evening
wear. Now It appears to be having Its
revensre by not only taking the lead where
evening wraps are concerned, but It comes
forth boldly by day In many alluring
foims, and even coats and Jackets have
succumbed to Its Influence.
It Is a garment that naturally lends
Itself to grace, partly because It hangs
free and unrestricted, nnd largely, no
doubt, because the materials chosen for
capes are usually the kind thnt drape
Into ruffles and folds of themselves.
Any one with a little skill In sewing
can safely undertake the making of a
cape at home. It Is wise, however, to
put ns much money Into the materials
as one can afford. Broadcloth, velour,
duvctyne or bengallue gives one a wide
range of choice and. although they are
all to be classed among the expensive
materlnls. yet they are all so wide that
only a few yards are needed and they
cut with very little waste.
A soft broadcloth will always make an
attractive cape and the season's colors
are quite wonderful, especially the grays
that merge into violet, nnd the browns
that are tinged with green or with gold.
The cape sketched today has two of the
motives that run through the present
fashion music. It flares broadly, Just as
many of the rrdlngotes do, nnd ns the
skirts of all kinds of frocks are doing

Buy no tooth powder containing alum
or tartaric acid. Charcoal, finely pulver
ized. Is the very best preparation If 5
ounces are used with
Cuttlefish bone, 2 ounces;
Raw areca nuts, powdered, 1 ounce.
If your teeth should be what Is called
"naturally brown," try a little lemon
Juice applied with a soft cloth. Blnse
the mouth thoroughly afterward, and do
not use too frequently.
Brush your teeth after every meal. Use
the up-and-down stroke In preference to
the ordinary way. In the morning rinse
the mouth, after washing, with a glass
ful of water to which you have added a
few drops of tincture of myrrh.
Lastly, and most emphatically, have
your teeth examined every three or four
months. This does away with all the
pain of abscesslng and the other evils.
Preventive dentistry Is by far the most

Subway shopping quite easily becomes
a habit. One ventures somewhat skeptic
ally the first time with the uneasy fear
that one will be tempted to purchase
something for very little money that wilt

Whatever your position, you must take

and It will laugh back; storm, and It will

It doesn't pay to be sour. The woman
with a grievance how well we all know
her never seems to get there. People
refuse to help such a bote. Most pcoplo
have enough worries of their own, with
out listening to other folks'. It's selfish
of them, no doubt, but It Is very natural.
The woman who goes about with a long
face Is already half-way to getting a
refusal for any favor ehe wishes granted.
It pays. Every year people spend thou

could easily save their pockets. There

wilful habit of "giving way," of reveling
in "blues"? This may be a strange view
to many, but It will well repay a little

cheerful nature makes a happy home,

To Give Oak an Antique
1. Procure some green walnut shells
and boil them In a copper vessel till all
the strength Is obtained from them; strain
off and bottle. For use, It should be di
luted with cold water according to the
tone required, and applied with a sponge.
When dry give a coat of French polish
and brown hard shellac varnish, mixed In
equal proportions, applied with a broad
flat brush, rf green skins are not pro
curable, obtain It already made from any
large oil shop, only see It Is genuine
This Is a very easy matter, as it has a
very peculiar and woody smell.
2. Obtain a quantity of liquid ammonia
mix with Vandyke brown and apply
after thoroughly rubbing the work He'
peat after allowing a clay or two to dry
This will leave a dull appearance which
may be darkened more by repeating sev-

These observations were hardly el

A grain of truth did seem lo lie In h..

what Is st(ch attention worth? ig u
sincere nnd' genuine? The men perhaw

that such oittwitrd tokens ns the free ti

I think sincerity is rather lacking n
the average Painted Olrl. Her vety S
penrnnce looks most Insincere. She may
be perfectly sweet, nnd have a rcallr
beautiful diameter, but she does not
look It. We Incvltnbly Judge a girl b

It seems a great pity to see so many
young girls who have pretty natural com
plexions change tho real to tho artificial
They should remember that "painting thr

The first of these Is unselfishness. Are
you selfish nnd overanxious about your
own concerns? If you nro, alter your
standpoint. And If you do this you win

A mnn who truly loves n woman Is
always Inclined to go a. little beyond his

qualities If you hear she makes her own
prettiest frocks and thinks n thing may

Is costly: If she can tell you how a
dinner should be cooked whether sha
can cook It herself or not; If she knotvj

has n horror of being in debt even a
sixpence then you may be sure sho will

If she listens to your troubles, ana
tries to comfort you; to your Jovs, and
rejoices over them; If she tries to
smooth away tho cloud from your brow,
and Is full of loving, tender sympathy
for every one around her then you may
feel certain that she will make that best

Tho best way to Judge how she will

what sho Is like In her own home before
you decide how she will govern yours.
Gems of Thought
There are souls In the world who have
the gift of finding Joy everywhere, anl
of leaving it behind them when they go.
Joy gushes from under their lingers, like
Jets of light. Their Influence Is an In
evitable gladdening of the heart. Ar
you ono of these?
God's way is,, the hest nay. Whether
It Is long or short, smooth or difficult, we
hnvo no reason to become discouraged,
"You'll nd whene'er you roam.
That marble floors and gilded walls
Can never make a homo.
But every house where Love abides
And Friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, nnd home sweet home,
For there the heart ran rest."
Why fear tomorrow, timid heart?
Why trend the future's way?
We only need to do our part
Today, dear child, todaj-.
The past Is written! Close the boo!
un pages sad and gay;
Within the future do not look,
But live today today.
'Tis this one hour that God has given!
His now wo must obey;
And It will make our earth his heaven
To live today today.
