That was the moment when, the
rescue party descended the shaft in
the alternate cage. But it was not
for seevral days that Stepan under
stood what had happened.
They told him that day, when he
and Sophie were married quietly,
not as is the Galician custom, with
dance and drinking. Sophie insisted
for several days that Stepan under-.
stood readily.
"You see," said the mine engineer,
"Tozan's theory was well enough. He
knew it jibed with gravitation, but he
didn't stop to realize that the earth
is moving all the while. If you drop
anything down a half-mile shaft, Ste
pan, it will hit the east wall en route,
instead of the bottom. That's where
Tozan got his."

HOUSEHOLD HELPS
For a weak person when bathing,
especially in summer, a gill of ammo
nia or half cup of rock salt in a small
tub of water is a wonderful invigora
tor, almost as good as a sea bath.
Lavender water may be easily
znade by steeping for one hour in a
double boiler one pound of fresh lav
ender with one pint of water. Cool
and add two quarts of alcohol. Let
stand two days, filter through fine
cloth and bottle.
Remove the paint the painter care
lessly left on the window pane by
wetting the spots with hot vinegar,
then rubbing with a penny. If the
spots are of long standing, soak them
with turpentine and use the same
method.

THE AMERICAN GIRL FASHION'S
LATEST MODEL
Let us introduce the American Girl
the "stand by the president" giri.
She has discarded Belgian blue and
the kaiser's green-gray, she has put
aside her military stripes and buttons,
so popular a few weeks ago, and she
is proving her patriotism by wearing
gowns of American design and "neu
tral' colors.
Here's a very charming illustration
of the new American girl model
which I sketched the other day in the
studio of a famous fashion designer.
It's made of white wool with pin
stripes of black. The jacket is semi
fitted and it's lined with reseda green
crepe; the collar and the tabs on the
coat and skirt are also of green crepe.
The buttons are green with rims of
white.
The skirt is circular, and it gains a
becoming fullness from the pleats at
the sides. It's the popular shoetop
length. A blouse of polka dotted
chiffon would be pretty with this
gown and, of course ,the only hat
for a good American girl is the prim
little, trim little sailor hat, ,
