It is strange,-the different angles or
observation which mike ope-person look
at his personal Infirmity as ah occulon
to .call forth duty, sacrifice and service
on the part of others, while another,
with the same Infirmity will see In It su
preme reason for sell-duty, that .others
may""be spared" the necessity of bearing
a burden peculiarly his own.
I .happened recently to note the two
.-'Viewpoints, and ttje contrast was rather
One aspect was shown In a very ten
der, pretty little essay on "Silence," the
silence, of deafness. In tts nraimtaf up
it was a gracious appeal to the suffer
er's world of friends and acquaintances
to help soften the Halation that Is the
almost inevitable lot of the deaf and
to forget self In the effort to compen
sate another for a, loss that makes him
feet that everything worth while has
slipped from his life.
It pointed out the beauty that inhered
' in the purpose to make him forget and
bring him back: to his old circle by an
intelligent, thoughtrul effort to let him
understand the drift of talk. It cited
beautiful illustrations of patience and
sympathy and It brought some measure
of understanding of the daily ana nour-
iy trials that come to those who are
excluded from the world of sound.
An Eloquent Sermon.
It constituted an eloquent, simple ser
mon on "Bear ye one another's burdens,"
and not a word of it should be ignored
by one whose physical self Is without
a flaw, whose every sense is unimpair
ed And who Is linked with the world
about him in ways that he does not
appreciate until they are cut off.
And then I turned to the experience
of Harriet MarUneau.
You remember, deafness came to her
early In life, and In tho first cruel shock,
which kept her in the grip of dread and
protest, she became Ill-tempered, sensi
tive and shrinking. Then but the les
bon came slowly she made a vow of
patience concerning her Infirmity' and
determined that though it might make
her way of life bard, she would still re
member that. It brought a special duty
to spare others as much as possible and
to do -everything within her power to
overcome the morbid and selfish feelings
peculiar to many afflicted with this par
In recounting her experience she tells
of the false sensitiveness which restrains
dear folk from the use of every possible
aid to hearing and says that the special
duty of the deaf is to spare others all
possible fatigue. As for ierself. It was
ten- years before she recognized that an
-ear trumpet" "was, a thing to consider
not alone In the light or a personal ben
efit, but a real duty she owed to others.
She- refers to the first awakening that
came to her through her brother. He
had dined In company with a woman
who hsd made herself irksome by her
insistence upon, being told every scrap of
conversation, while not In any way at
tempting to make It easier to render
that service; and as he repeated the In
cident he expressed the hope that Miss
MarUneau might never impose a similar
burden upon others.' And It was then
that she made her tow of patience.
The Way Overcome.
Her "Letter to the Deaf," with Its
exquisite blend of remonstrance and
sympathy born of complete understand
ing, has been, a real solace to many
similarly aO lcted because of its Im
pulse to self-mastery. It snows all the
deprivations, as none but a fellow-sufferer
could show them, but It Indicates
the way to overcome.
How well she overcame one under
stands when It was possible , for her
to say of the deafness that at one
time promised to sap much of the sweet
ness from her life.
"Tet here am 1 now, on the borders
of the grave, at the end of a busy life,
confident that this same deafness Is
about the best thing that ever happened
to me." And she Tneant this partly from
a selfish viewpoint In that it had given
her victory over self, had taught her
some valuable truths and habits, and
.had given her peculiar opportunity to
help others who suffered the same mis
fortune without possessing the same
stimulus to offset the hardship.
And the two sides present tbelf re
spective missions: --
The one to urge you and ma to deeper
sympathy for those who are cut off
and to greater effort to make them feel
within the circle, in spite of their In'
nrmlty. From our standpoint, the serv
ice Is slight; It is simply a matter of
The other side is the one that; after
an, counts the most, because It Is the
one which marks the difference be
tween the lovable and the unloved. Ih
spite of her In infirmity. Miss Mar
Uneau had a peculiar power of charm
ins friends and strangers, but. If she had
forgotten her early vow, perhaps those
who Temeraber her to-day might think
only of the quality of her mind and not
or the exceeding- graclousness that made
her deafness pale into Insignificance.
And you know that "Letter to the
Deaf' "is .applicable to a host of other
The favorite panel effect Is here adapt

rather scant skirt In two pieces. The
sash of black silk Is fastened under the

her Bftkbtor who li" fortunate, enough to
own onejf the beautiful Irish crochet
The shops show these la many lovely
deslgnsv but, unfortunately, they are
far beyond the yeach of the woman wjth
a limited purse. This need not prevent
rher from hiving one of these fascinating
bodices, however, for there Is no 'diffi

use a crochet needle. Irish crochet Is
quits easy to make. One can receive full
Instructions from the many books and
pamphlets on the subject. and the mak
ing of a blouse- successfully depends en
tirely on the -pattern used. The best
way to do Is to take an old blouse that
fits exactly, rip It up and from that cut
a pattern out of strong muslin or linen.
Use colored basting cotton to trace the
seams, lay the pattern flat on a table
and from that let your Judgment dictate
the size and shape to make the crocheted
Heavy Croquet Not Suitable.
Nearly any pattern of crochet may be
adapted to the blouse If It be a light,
lacy design. Heavy crochet Is sot at
all suitable; do not attempt It.
For a beginning It Is best- to do the
work In strips like Insertion and Join
them after you have enough to form
the entire blouse. The strips should be
about Hi Inches wide when finished.
Hake the collar first, then the center
strip, and continue until you have suf
ficient strips of the proper length to
cover the pattern. Now Join them to
gether with a lacy stitch and you have

Tho Bleeping apartments daring the
summer should be made to appear dainty

This Is an easy matter and little ex

draperies used during the winter-shave

articles Qf furniture dispensed with,
clothe your room In Its summer garb.
Purchase plain, barred or figured dim

From this fashion a cover for your bed.
bureau, dressing table and the window
Measure the length of the' bed and al
low three or four widths of material, ac
cording to the size of the bed. This may
be: finished by a ruffled flounce,, pleating
or by a deep hem. Fourteen inches from
the hem, or bordering, the ruffle, stitch
bands of figured dimity.
-Cut these bands from a wide-striped
design, which may be had in a great
'number pt varieties. ,
These spreads are. -easily laundered and
may be kept fresh and clean through
the hot, dusty-summer.
For the Bathroom.
The,soapy -water splashed on the white
enamel Walls of the bathroom make un
sightly marks which are. rather hard to
remove. To prevent this have a brass
curtain rod put op- about eighteen Inches
above the tub, and running Its entire
length. On this put a splasher of white
butchers' linen, hemstitched. Tho effect

Dark Part Take three cups of brown
sugar, light brown preferred. cup of
milk. 2 teaspoonfuls of cocoa and Vi cup
of walnuts. No butter or flavoring used.
Poll until it will hair when dropped
from the spoon. The fudge should be
stirred while cooking. Remove from fire
and beat well until It begins to cling
and harden in the dlsK. Pour It Into, a
buttered tin. If by chance the fudge la
too soft, reheat it and boll It over and
beat aa before.
Light Part Take three cups of brown
sugar, K cup of milk and cup of
raisins. By this time the dark fudge will
have hardened. Spread over It, thick aa
desired, peanut butter. It may not look
smooth, but It will not matter. Now
boll the light fudge as above and when
ready pour this over the peanut butter.
Thus youhave a layer of dark and of
light fudge with the peanut butter be
tween like a sandwich. It is delicious.
The nuts and raisins may be left out
Other ways may be used in making
fndge which are a change from the old
way. Instead of using milk with the
brown sugar, use grape Juice and a half
cup of raisins. To four cups of brown
sugar use one cup of grape Juice, one
half cup of raisins. Boll as before. This
Is good. Or use one cup of coffee or any
Juice from preserves. In making the
plain fudge a few drops of pineapple ex
tract Is good. Also a teaspoonf ul of cin
namon. Or two tablespoonfuls of pea
nut butter. And candied orange peel or
cherries are well liked By making
layer of dark, then light, and finishing

Serve for each individual a thick slice
of pineapple, with a center slice of
orange. Juicy and seedless.
Mayonnaise Is spread over the top,

The very latest wrinkle In coffee serv

The tiny coffee cups so much In vogue

advantageous, but looks very pretty heap

The one-sided effect Is not exactly new
In bodices, but It seems to be In greater
evidence this season than it waa last
The newest is the evening 'gown with
one sleeve and one side of the bodice in
lace -or embroidered net. the other formed
of a long breadth of silk carried up over
the shoulder from the back, crossing the
front, and tnus forming both bodice and
slesve, then, draped so as to form a train
over the lace skirt.
This silk drapery can: bo fashioned at
the waist with a handsome ornament or
with a bunch of flowers. It would-be
very suitable for dancing, as the train
could be lifted over the arm, leaving
only, the short skirt beneath.
Sponge large and small veils of nun's

ery little alcohol and two or throe
drops of vinegar Instead of the borax.
For sponging black things use a piece
of black woolen cloth. After sponging on
both sides lay a moderately thick piece
of wrapping paper over the veils and
press with a warm iron.
If, the veils are not to. oe worn over
the face and look a little rusty, ase a
