New York City. Miss Hardy hails
from Spokane, Wash., and is only 18
years old. She first conceived the
idea of riding across the continent
last June, so mounted on her per
forming horse, "Goldie," and escort
ed by her two dogs, one an Alaskan
huskie and the other a pedigreed
Russian wolfhound, she rode leisure
ly down the coast to San Francisco
without having any exciting adven
tures until her arrival in the Golden
Gate ciy, where her horse was
frightened by the flash of the electric
signs and the din of the traffic and
ran away. After an exciting chase
he was finally captured by two
mounted policemen. Miss Hardy will
start on her trans-continental trip
immediately.
FOR'IRONING DAY
A brick, preferably anew and solid
one from the brickyard, makes an ex
cellent ironstand!vit's.a non-conductor
of heat and .for that reason-is
more satisfactory than a stand
bought in the'store.-
Irons that' are heated on the top
of the range or fire should be stood
upon a piece of polished tin. ' They
heat more quickly and are kept quite
clean. The lid of a biscuit tin does
admirably for this.
If you blacklead and polish very
thoroughly the base and handle jof
your iron it will keep hot much long
er, for the polish keeps the lieat from
radiating off.
The ironing board should .be cov
ered with a cloth on which the're
are no seams or patches, as these
-would mark fine linen, etc. The .be3t
board covering is flannel,, tacked
down and then' a removable cotton
cover. ' 1
If your elbow when ironing is bent
away from your body at an upward
and outward angle, that shows -that
the table Is too high and nothing is
more tiring. Have a little platform
made and notice .the difference.

of semi-seclusion,, for in 'these unset

those who argued .most strongly
against war, and the participation in
war of the laboringman.

After washing: oilcloth and lino-
